Captain Obama -- Your Pilot Speaking

A good friend of mine, Lady J USA, received this in her inbox and wanted to share it:
"Good morning ladies and gentlemen and as your Captain for today's flight I would like to welcome you all to BHO-BS airlines. "While this is my first flight as Captain I want to assure everyone to rest easy and trust me that all will be well with me at the controls. Yes it's true I have no experience in this particular aircraft, or any aircraft for that matter, but please remember that I have been voted 'Most Likely to Succeed' by millions of mindless Americans who really don't care as long as I tell them what they want to hear and make promises I have no intention of keeping. They understood that the most important was to have 'Change' and get me at the controls."

What I Saw At the Discombobulation - by Michelle Malkin

Michell Malkin writes her column from DENVER:
Never was so much hype created by so few to simulate the appearance of so many. The hard-core left vowed to turn out 50,000 protesters for the Democratic National Convention this week. They pledged to "Re-create '68" and cause the kind of tear-gas-infused revolutionary havoc that marked the DNC in Chicago four decades ago. Police prepared for the worst riots. Media from around the world anticipated the best pictures. But when rhetorical push came to real-life shove, the nostalgic, Marx-adoring organizers of Re-create '68 seem to have mustered no more than, oh, 68 bodies. Their presence here is dwarfed by the massive show of police, press and camera-toting looky-loos. You can't take a picture without someone else taking pictures of everyone else taking pictures of not much else getting in your frame.

Joseph Farah is wrong - DEAD WRONG !!!

I have to give the credit to ths column being submitted to by tklagesse67, with a great description: "Janet Folger explains why Joseph Farah of is wrong about not voting in the upcoming presidential election or voting for a third-party candidate." If Janet Folger is in trouble with Joseph Farah for writing the great column, then so am I for adding it to this blog today. And now, with Janet's great commitment to an issue that really SHOULD be at the top of our agenda, for those of us that still value life, Janet writes, "I've given my life to the pro-life movement, and I don't have another life to give it. Neither do the 50 million children whose lives were stolen from them." Oh, Janet, why do you have to go and complicate our lives so much? In the column, Janet makes a great case for NOT allowing the Obama family to occupy the White House, ever! The only problem is, the Founder, Editor and CEO of, Joseph Farah, has been telling his readers to vote for NONE OF THE ABOVE. We can't forget his powerful messages in, "McCain pain worse than Obama trauma", and "Why McCain is worse than Obama, Part 2." And then along with the Farah writings, I've done some ranting over at johnny2k Is Home, and I haven't been particularly kind to the Mac Man. In my own words and writings, I've paralleled Mr. Farah to a point where I've questioned if we would get anything better by voting for the "conservative" McCain, rather than Obama. Just when I thought I had it figured out, along comes Janet Folger to give us more reason to keep Obama out of the White House. Oh, I know, I'm going to have some further "discombobulated dreams" tonight! In my case, it isn't due to what kind of munchies - and how much - I can cram down my pie-hole before I go to bed; it's from reading and feeding my mind way too much information before I hit the pillows. But now, this. I can imagine that I won't be the only one tossing and turning tonight (should I ever get to bed), but after what Janet wrote, Joseph Farah will probably not be sleeping much, either. read more | digg story

McCain pain worse than Obama trauma (by Joseph Farah)

"I've dugg up four out of the first four comments (for this story on that I read. Everyone there, plus Joseph Farah, have made valid arguments. The major sides are like this: 1) We don't want Obama, no matter what, and 2) McCain may not be the least of two evils (as Joseph Farah explains), and 3) We need to vote with our hearts, and allow God - trust God - to sort it out." ~ johnny2k

Inmate Charged with Fake Letter Attack on McCain Offices

Finally, an update on "those letters" sent to McCain campaign offices. Hey, but wait, only the Denver letter is mentioned here! What about the one sent to the Manchester, New Hampshire office? And isn't it strange that "the" letter was sent from an inmate in the first place? I am still looking for updates to this; there are questions not answered. It sounds like another one out of the stupid criminal files:
The U.S. Secret Service immediately traced the letter back to its sender, as the return address included his name, inmate number and location of the jail where he is currently being held. It appears that the individual had previously sent such hoax threats to other people as well.

This Campaign is Going to Get Naaasty!!

The last few days have demonstrated that both Barack Obama and John McCain have decided to take the gloves off. Somebody grab the popcorn, it should be quite a show!~ treetop23 From the blog this refers to:
Why haven’t I paid any attention to politics before this year? Its awesome. So, the other day, McCain gets asked how many homes he has. Usually a pretty simple question of course, but, well, Cindy McCain is pretty wealthy and has more than a single two bedroom bungalow to her name. As a result, McCain responded that he’d have to check with his staff to determine how many homes they own. After some checking, it was determined that the McCain’s own seven homes.

McCain Campaign Offices Attacked?

By John Kubicek What is described as threatening letters with an unidentified white powdery substance were received at two John McCain campaign offices, so far. One was received at the Denver, Colorado campaign office. It was the first one announced. Not long after that, another report came from his campaign office in Manchester, New Hampshire.

More updates to come, I am sure. This is one of the first breaking news reports that I had seen that speaks of both of the the initial two attacks. And I only say "initial", because it is possible that more letters will be received. Who knows.

The top questions that should come to mind right now are, "who is responsible?", "what is the motive?", and, of course, "is John McCain in any kind of danger?". Again, this story is just now breaking. It will be interesting to see where this goes... if anywhere. It could be the beginning of something big, or it was a total hoax. We'll see. I wouldn't even attempt to speculate at this time!

Do paired dates prove Iraq-al-Qaida connection?

Jack Cashill talks about how aspiring filmmaker Chris Kusnell noticed the date of April 19, 1991 mentioned by the former Iraqi foreign minister, the wily Tariq Aziz, as the end of the Gulf War correlated with April 19, 1995 when there was the bombing in Oklahoma City. This sparked Kusnell's interest in other correlated dates related to Iraq. The following is the video that is referred to in the story:

U.S. still naked to EMP threat

Electricity grids down, uncontrolled fires from exploding gas transport systems, no communication to call for help, no water to battle fires: It's all part of a catastrophic scenario some scientists predict could happen under an electromagnetic pulse attack – and the Department of Homeland Security's 83-page emergency plan includes no mention of EMP or how it might respond to such an attack.
That's right. This article exposes the fact that DHS isn't planning for such an attack, the Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) weapon. Calling it a weapon of mass destruction would be an understatement, a major one. But here is the part of the column that really caught my attention:
When WND asked [DHS spokesman Russ] Knocke if DHS has a specific strategy to deal with an EMP attack, he said, "Not as we speak today. No." Asked if the department has considered creating a plan to address EMP threat following Congress' concern about such an attack, he replied: "The risk picture is ever changing. There's nothing in the strategic threat picture today that tells us there's an imminent EMP threat. That could change down the road as whatever circumstances in the world evolve. So, I am not telling you that it might never be among the highest priorities. We've actually looked at this issue, and we've looked at the entire spectrum of issues that we have to contend with when it comes to homeland security. But we have to prioritize. We're not in the business of being all things to all people at all times." [Emphasis: Mine]
That's right. The Dept. of Homeland Security doesn't consider the EMP weapon to be an imminent threat. Or, in my humble opinion, is it because we either have no way to stop it from ever happening, and - or - is there nothing that could be done in the way of emergency management should it ever happen? Or we could ask these questions in a different way: Is DHS predicting that it can ALWAYS be prevented? Will they ALWAYS be able to stop terrorists working for a rogue nation with a nuclear weapon? And then there is another question we could ponder on. How do we know that DHS doesn't have a secret emergency management plan outside of public knowledge in the case of an EMP attack? And of course, if it is secret, there would be a reason for it being secret. And that is what should scare us. I'm betting that you could let your imagination run wild on the various ways that they would accomplish "emergency management". That DHS spokesman wasn't telling us everything. read more | digg story

'Obama Nation' of Desolation?

Darktrooper007 accurately describes this column when submitting to "Henry Lamb predicts misery for U.S. should Barack's socialism take hold." digg this story Henry Lamb's column leaves no doubt in the reader's mind that Henry is another believer - as I am - that Barack Hussein Obama is a socialist. But there's more. Obama may be the ultimate narcissist. I think the Obamassiah may actually believe in his "new messiah status" as Henry writes below. And I'm really not sure which came first, or whom convinced whom, of Barack's "Messiah Status". Did he start believing the Main Stream Media hype, or did he somehow use his "power" to influence them?
His new messiah status has convinced him that once in the White House, he will be able to wave his hand and spew forth grandiose rhetoric that will make Ahmadinejad fall to his knees and abandon Iran's nuclear ambitions. With a single volley of Obama verbosity, bin Laden will lay down arms and call off his jihad. So mighty are the words of the new messiah – in his own mind – that the entire world is awaiting his coronation.
It was the last paragraph of Henry Lamb's great column today that got me focused on this story enough to add it to this blog:
Dr. Jerome Corsi's latest book, "The Obama Nation," is one of several new publications that peel away the media dazzle from the socialist foundation of candidate Obama. Some writers have even suggested that an Obama nation would be the "abomination of desolation" referred to in Matthew 24:15. Should Obama succeed in converting America into the socialist nation he describes in his platform, desolation would follow, just as surely as it has followed every other government-managed society in history.

There is a problem, and that is not enough American voters that know what Obamassiah stands for. And there is a solution. The solution is Jerome Corsi, Henry Lamb, , Patrice Lewis, and others of us of the anti-socialist nature, that are not afraid to keep writing and trying to spread the real truth through our writings. And it isn't so much about who writes the articles, but in how much people are willing to pass the messages on to others, either in their blogs or maybe on Or, maybe even by word-of-mouth.

That is why today I'm presenting this column by Henry Lamb. It is important, vital nformation. In my humble opinion, there may be no more that we can do, but it also may be exactly what we need to do. In no way do I want to spread any kind of disinformation or misinformation. We must always discern the purpose of the content of anything we read. I don't know about you, but I don't want my opinion based on false information.

So, to the best of my knowledge, the information that I understand to be true is all that I intend to pass on to others. Like everyone else, I get a daily barrage of email that I would have to suspect to be fabrications. I wouldn't really want to risk my credibility by forwarding such email. Only if I spend the time to research to collaborate various sources, and even then, who really knows! It just comes down to making our choices and sticking by our decisions, right or wrong. For those with Faith, I feel that is an easier choice. Our choice begins with our convictions based on the Word of God.

The Three Amigos - by Presidential Candidate Chuck Baldwin

Both Republican Party Presidential candidate John McCain and Democrat Party Presidential candidate Barack Obama recently spoke at the annual convention of the National Council of La Raza. I'm sure most readers understand that "La Raza" is Spanish for "The Race." || digg this story What percentage of American voters know who Chuck Baldwin is, what party he is a Presidential nominee for, or have a clue what he stands for? In Chuck Baldwin's "The Three Amigos", he informs us of what every American needs to know about the two parties that run this country:

In spite of La Raza's obvious racist, anti-American agenda, both John McCain and Barack Obama were more than happy to prostitute themselves in front of this grubby group. And, as already noted, President Bush has repeatedly championed many of La Raza's goals and has rewarded La Raza with millions of federal tax dollars. Accordingly, President George W. Bush, and Senators John McCain and Barack Obama are not only three peas in a pod when it comes to illegal immigration: they are The Three Amigos. Just as George W. Bush has no intention of securing America's borders, neither does John McCain nor Barack Obama. Both of these Presidential candidates will continue the policies of their predecessor and leave the U.S. wide open to the threat of potential terrorists, drug dealers, violent gang members, and felonious criminals. The reason for this should be obvious: McCain and Obama, along with many others in Washington, D.C., do not believe in putting America first. They are globalists through and through. As I have often said, the real battle today is not between liberals and conservatives. Those labels are meaningless. It is not between Republicans and Democrats. Pat Buchanan was right when he said that the two major parties are merely "two wings of the same bird of prey." The real battle today is between Americans and globalists. Between those who believe in constitutional government, national sovereignty and independence, secure borders, and putting America first, and those who want to merge the United States into some kind of global New World Order. As I said, John McCain and Barack Obama are globalists. And their pandering before an anti-American, racist organization such as La Raza proves it.

> > From Chuck Baldwin at

This is something that scares me about this election the most. While I want to prevent Barack Obama from being President of the United States for his far left Socialist desires, I find myself not wanting to vote for either McLame or the Obamassiah for these reasons as Chuck discussed. It's this kind of information that makes it a most difficult decision, doesn't it? Read Chuck Baldwin's column, "The Three Amigos"

The race-baiters' manufactured bigotry - by Patrice Lewis

A great description of this story was written by itsafunnything on "A heart-lands look at racism. And a common-sense rebuttal of race-baiting. The Author points out what those of us in fly-over country understand. Racism is no longer a threat. It's a tool." | digg story Both the description above and the story are well said and written. The fact is, it isn't too often that people will write about this subject, for the very reason that was the subject of this commentary.
We are also faced with the extraordinary assertion from far too many quarters that, if we don't vote for Sen. Obama, our reasons must be racist. It couldn't possibly be because we don't want a socialist president. It must mean we don't like black people, or at least we don't want black people in positions of power. Oh please!
Of course, you'd have to read the entire column to completely understand what Patrice is saying. You see, what Patrice also writes hits home. It is how I feel, and for that matter, how I've always felt:
With few exceptions, nearly everyone in this country has the opportunity to rise up on the socio-economic ladder by making sound, sensible choices. It doesn't matter what your skin color is. If you pursue educational opportunities as vigorously as possible, don't break the law, dress and speak in a manner preferred by employers, defer having babies until you're mature, married and employed, and other such choices (yes, choices – it's up to you and within your power), then it's almost assured that you won't be held back from your vocational ambition on the silly basis of skin color. The only thing holding someone back at this point is attitude.
That's right. It's about attitude, choices, ambition, and it all comes down to character. It is NOT about race, unless somebody uses it as an excuse. And then, like Patrice says, who is the real racist? The bad news for Democrats, and most of all, for The One, is that if the Obamassiah loses, it won't be because of his race. It will be because of his liberal leftist Socialist game. I'm very glad that Patrice wrote her column on this, as she hits it right out of the park. Patrice exposed their scheme to slant the playing field in their favor. What was written in this column needed to be said. The final words in this column says it like it is:
Racism is a horrible, intolerable and (frankly) stupid concept with no more validity than the idea that blondes are dumb and Frenchmen make better lovers. That it remains with us at all is more the fault of those who profit by it than those who still believe it. Let's do our best to eliminate it on all sides, shall we?

This is a tribute to Skip Caray. Please read it. I remember back when I was in the Air Force, and got to watch a lot of Atlanta Braves games, with Skip in command of the microphone. He was fun to listen to. He followed right along in the footsteps of his dad, Harry Caray. And Skip's son, Chip, was the voice of the Cubs along with Steve Stone, after the passing of his grand-daddy. I enjoyed every minute of Chip's time with the Cubs. I remember my favorite days of watching Cubs games were when they played against the Atlanta Braves, and Skip and his son Chip were both broadcasting the games, from their different booths. Great times! I'll miss Skip. My deepest condolences go out to Chip and his family.

Obama thinks he's better than you - By Craig R. Smith

Digg submitter basicben gives us a basic description of the column: "Craig R. Smith exposes Democrat candidate as arrogant, tricky magician." I'll go into a little further detail in my analysis of this column below. read more | digg story I agree with Craig R. Smith for the most part, at least in regard to Barack Hussein Obama being an illusionist, along with a few other choice descriptions, like being arrogant with "a tone of pompousness and entitlement." However, there is another theme to this story, if you are reading carefully: Craig says, "Is there really any sane person who believes this guy would make a good president?" I don't have quite the confidence that Craig has in the American voters. Apparently, there must be many voters that feel the guy would be a good President, though I can't really verify if many of them are actually sane. But here's the paragraph that I was most amused by:
I rest rather well knowing that whether it is voting for mayor, congressman, senator, president or even American Idol contestants, Americans always get it right. They are not easily deceived. They know a trick when they see one. They can smell a phony a mile away. And while the illusionist assistants in the media are working overtime to convince America their man, Barack, can lead the country to a new world, they know better. Americans are far more intelligent than the media understands, and this November they are going to get a huge lesson on that intelligence.
What Craig R. Smith says there is the exact reason that I don't rest well! I'm afraid that I don't maintain that much confidence in Americans getting it right. It seems that the people are very easily tricked, usually through manipulation. My favorite line used by the illusionists (the politicians and their minions in the MSM) is, "It's for the children." It always works. It reminds me of a short clip I put on my youtube channel last October (2007), where Chicago talk-radio personality Mancow, while on Fox & Friends, warns us of the use of that line:

Yes, I'm all too afraid that many Americans ARE sucked in by that illusion, that "it's for the children." It works all too often, and it worked here in Iowa when the new Governor engineered an additional $1.00/pack tax on cigarettes, and then went on to mandate restrictions on the use of tobacco in restaurants and bars, without allowing the owners and the marketplace to make their own decisions. It was "for the children." And then there were the following three paragraph's in this column by Craig that I have to comment on:
Many of the challenges we face as a nation have no easy fix. We can't just raise taxes and pay all the obligations that are on the way in the years to come. Properly inflating our tires and keeping our cars tuned are not the answer to the energy crunch. Sending a $1,000 check to every American and sending the bill to Exxon is not an energy policy. Printing money to bail out banks and stop foreclosures is not the answer to bad decisions. Government is not the answer to our problems; government is the problem. The sooner an honest politician declares so and puts forth legislation to shrink government, the better off we will all be. America has a lot of bad, but far more good. This is, and will always be, a great country because of the American people. Most are hardworking, honest, loyal and dedicated people who love their families, country and God. They know the future will not be easy but also realize greatness never comes easily. They just want a president who will tell the truth and work hard on their behalves to do what is right – not what is easy. "Easy-way-out" thinking is half the problem.
Yes, for the most part, Americans are good people. But yet, are the good Americans going to be able to understand what is really facing this country? Are enough of us going to be going to the polls this November armed with the truth? Sure, I realize that the morons who bothered to go to the Democratic caucuses and primaries and made Obama the presumptive nominee of their party makes up a very small minority of the actual voting population, doesn't it reflect a shift in thinking amongst Americans that government is the answer (not the cause) to most of our greatest challenges? While Craig R. Smith has it right about most Americans being "hardworking, honest, loyal and dedicated people who love their families, country and God," I still see a major disconnect with the reality of the politcal scene. There are just too many God-loving patriotic Americans that are just too busy to spend their time thinking about issues, unless of course it is about global warming. For the most part, most people aren't aware of any issues outside of what they hear in church or on their local or major network news programs. Just ask those people that use email for communication how often they just delete any email that comes to them that involve any political issues. Of course, it's just junk, they say. It's hard to argue with that, except for the fact that a few of us are "connected" to the goings-on in the political world, and know how to discern the junk from the realities. But the point is, I'm all too aware of the fact that people actually AVOID being informed. Patrice Lewis recently wrote in her column Real America, a story called Stupivision, about how many hours in a year that Americans watch the boob tube. I can say that mind-numbing butt-fattening habit is just the tip of the iceberg. By the time it's all said and done, with all the things that there is to do, a few people try to educate themselves just enough to be armed with something to talk about at the next social event. Do you get what I'm telling you yet? Craig R. Smith was doing the right thing by bringing attention to the illusions of the Barack candidacy for President. I completely agree with that. But the confidence of there being enough people that will see through the smoke and mirrors, I'm beginning to have my doubts. I am not sure if there will be enough people that will read Craig's column or my blog. I want to believe. I'd rest a whole lot easier if I had Craig's optimistic view of the American voters this fall.

Stupivision - By Patrice Lewis

You have to read this column by Patrice. It hits it out of the park. And there was a great comment on the Digg post by IvoteGOAfirst to this. Read this carefully:
She took the words right out of my mouth! Another thing that turns kids into non compos mentis zombies is video games. But some of the parents are into the same thing, sitting there destroying their thumbs and ambition, right alongside their kid - like little kids themselves. Read a book and expand their minds? They're not interested. Go for a walk? It's a boring idea to them. What has happened to people? They've been spoiled in "the land of plenty" with these mind-numbing electronic gadgets and games and robbed of their morals and values compass. It's all part of the dumbing-down NWO Marxist Communist liberal elites' master plan. Think about it.

It isn't just the idiot box - the TV. It's everything. There's too much to do. Hey, why go throw the frisbee around with your wife, kids and dog - while running through the sprinkler - when you can be downloading MP3's and adding them to your iPod? Why spend the time setting up little plastic players on a vibrating field when you can be playing one of the Madden NFL games? Get serious! Work just isn't as much fun as the mind-numbing-dumbing-down stuff that we can do. Hey, who even has the time to go to work anymore? Patrice, it's not just about TV.
