Patrice Lewis: Washington socialists need a good spanking

Maybe America is learning that discipline can make a difference with spoiled brats. Maybe we're realizing that a good spanking is in order for the out-of-control socialists in Washington. Maybe that's why there are "tea parties" springing up all over America. And Obama has only been in power for less than a couple of months. Time for a spanking! read more Note from blog editor: By the way, had I followed my usual title format with the title followed with " - by (author's name)," the title to this story would have been, "Washington socialists need a good spanking - by Patrice Lewis."

Meet the D.C. hypocrites - By Henry Lamb

Democrats and three RINOs just spent nearly $800 billion to: 1) stimulate the economy; 2) create or save 3.5 million jobs; and 3) reduce dependence on foreign oil, according to President Obama, Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. These goals could be achieved, however, with no new spending at all. read more digg story

The Pakistani time bomb - By Hal Lindsey

There are major issues in Pakistan, one being that the Taliban now controls Swat, in Northwest Pakistan, a region the size of Delaware, and Al Qaida is allowed to openly operate in. The other issue is that Pakistan may have up to 100 nuclear warheads, and have ballistic and cruise missiles capable of delivery. If Pakistan falls, what could happen?

The president's plan to stimulate poverty - By Jane Chastain

In the description on for this story, I wrote: "With the passage of the so-called economic stimulus bill designed by the Democrat-run Congress and promoted by President Obama, the perverse incentives that actually reward states for enrolling and keeping people on the public dole are baaack! But Barack Obama had praised the welfare reforms of 1996 during the election campaign. Go figure..." Another great digg user and friend, indygirl, submitted the same story, only from the other WND url, and she said it in a way I liked better than my description: "1965, L. Johnson initiated a welfare system that for many people became a way of life. Not until 1996, when a Rep[ublican] Congress forced President Clinton to change welfare reforms was a 60% drop in welfare caseloads seen. Obama praised these reforms during his campaign, but now he seems bent on trapping ignorant people into poverty and control." It was the part when indygirl wrote, "he seems bent on trapping ignorant people into poverty and control," that was the perfect follow-up to what I had stated above. Well, except for the fact that she submitted the story first... Please note: I'm the guilty one of submitting a duplicate story to The reason I submitted it again is because many readers of WorldNetDaily have to choose between the or the urls.

Grab your Indian gear - The American Tea Party happens on Friday

As many of you may have heard, there is a revolt brewing over the Democrats' grotesque tax and spending boondoggle. A trillion dollars belonging to future generations of Americans has been blown on absolute garbage. The Liberals are abuzz about how Obama has done more in 30 days than any president in history. On that, I would agree. It took us 232 years to get to a $1 trillion national debt. Obama doubled it in 30 days. Yesterday the Frankenstein Democrats in the House unveiled their monster Omnibus spending bill (one wit noted that the Omnibus is the Stimulus's retarded little brother) with another $410 billion of pure pork products, including 9,000 (pigs') earmarks.

Rothschild Agents Take 10 Key Posts In Obama Administration

"Six former Rhodes Scholars (educated at Oxford University in Britain) and four others associated with the London School of Economics are serving in key posts in the Obama administration. That's not good." By Michael Collins Piper American Free Press 02-21-2009 Our greatest founding father and first president, George Washington, probably wouldn't be ready to celebrate his birthday on Feb. 22 if he were alive today. Having led the 13 colonies to independence from the British Empire in 1783, following the course of a difficult eight-year struggle by those freedom-loving American colonists who followed him, Washington (who lived from 1732 to 1799) would most assuredly be appalled to see that the liberties achieved from the American Revolution are now being flagrantly defied by a number of figures who populate the upper ranks of the administration of Barack Obama. Six former Rhodes Scholars (educated at Oxford University in Britain) and four others associated with the London School of Economics are serving in key posts in the Obama administration. That's not good. Here are 10 of the key "British"-that is, Rothschild -operatives now ensconced in the Obama administration (more can be expected): Susan Rice - ambassador to the UN; Michael McFaul - head of the Russian desk at the National Security Council; Elena Kagan - solicitor general of the United States; Anne-Marie Slaughter - State Department policy planning staff; Neal S.Wolin - deputy counsel to the president for economic policy; Ezekial Emanuel - senior counselor at the White House Office of Management and Budget on health care policy; Lawrence Summers - head of the National Economic Council; Peter Orszag - director of the Office of Management and Budget; Peter Rouse - senior advisor to the president; Mona Sutphen - deputy chief of the White House staff.

Senator questions Obama eligibility

Shelby: 'They said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate' WASHINGTON – A U.S. senator has weighed in on the continuing controversy over Barack Obama's eligibility for office by saying he has never seen proof the new president was actually born in Hawaii. "Well, his father was Kenyan and they said he was born in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any birth certificate," Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., told constituents in Cullman County. "You have to be born in America to be president." WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama's status as a "natural born citizen."

No Habeas Rights For Obama Detainees - Bush Right Again

Obama Stays the Course on Bagram The Justice Department today said it would adhere to the Bush administration's position that detainees imprisoned at a U.S. air base in Afghanistan have no right to challenge their confinement in U.S. courts. Last month, U.S. District Judge John Bates gave the new administration an opportunity to refine its position in cases involving four detainees incarcerated at the Bagram prison, located on a converted Soviet base about 30 miles north of Kabul. They are seeking the same rights as prisoners held at the naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba -- more than 200 of whom are challenging their detention in habeas proceedings in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Acting Assistant Attorney General Michael Hertz filed the government's response today. Here it is, in full: "This Court’s Order of January 22, 2009 invited the Government to inform the Court by February 20, 2009, whether it intends to refine its position on whether the Court has jurisdiction over habeas petitions filed by detainees held at the United States military base in Bagram, Afghanistan. Having considered the matter, the Government adheres to its previously articulated position." The approximately 650 prisoners in the hardscrabble Bagram prison are being held there indefinitely and without charge. The prison is closed to journalists and human rights activists, and while it has long been dubbed "the other Guantánamo," Bagram detainees lack the same privileges, such as regular access to lawyers. While the Guantánamo population has dwindled to about 245, Bagram has added more than 100 prisoners since 2005, according to the Defense Department. President Obama has ordered a task force led by the attorney general and the defense secretary to review overall policy on detainees. A report is due in six months. A Justice Department spokesman declined to speculate on whether the government's position may change following the review. [Continue reading]

Mr. President, Keep the Airwaves Free - By Rush Limbaugh

By RUSH LIMBAUGH Dear President Obama: I have a straightforward question, which I hope you will answer in a straightforward way: Is it your intention to censor talk radio through a variety of contrivances, such as "local content," "diversity of ownership," and "public interest" rules -- all of which are designed to appeal to populist sentiments but, as you know, are the death knell of talk radio and the AM band? You have singled me out directly, admonishing members of Congress not to listen to my show. Bill Clinton has since chimed in, complaining about the lack of balance on radio. And a number of members of your party, in and out of Congress, are forming a chorus of advocates for government control over radio content. This is both chilling and ominous. As a former president of the Harvard Law Review and a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, you are more familiar than most with the purpose of the Bill of Rights: to protect the citizen from the possible excesses of the federal government. The First Amendment says, in part, that "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press." The government is explicitly prohibited from playing a role in refereeing among those who speak or seek to speak. We are, after all, dealing with political speech -- which, as the Framers understood, cannot be left to the government to police. [Continue reading]

National Guard scraps plans to invade rural town

'This operation could be pretty intrusive to the people' By Drew Zahn © 2009 WorldNetDaily DES MOINES, Iowa – Following publicized reports that the Army National Guard was planning a military training exercise on the streets of a rural Iowa town, the commanding officers have called off the mock "invasion." The Guard had planned a four-day urban military operation in tiny Arcadia, Iowa, population 443, sending troops to take over the town and search door-to-door for a suspected weapons dealer. The exercise was designed as a mock scenario to give soldiers the skills needed for deployment in an urban environment, and military officials stressed that only households that consented to be part of the drill would be searched. "It will be important for us to gain the trust and confidence of the residents of Arcadia," Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO for Alpha Company, told Carroll's Daily Times Herald.

End of the American Dream? - By Star Parker

According to our president, because "big banks traded in risky mortgages… lenders took advantage of homebuyers… homebuyers knowingly borrowed too much …" we have today's housing crisis. But it's all so untrue. What has failed in our country is not capitalism. It is the intentional undermining of it. The Obama team is bringing capitalism to an end. Star writes:
As our new political leadership leads us into the fiscal twilight zone, is it too much to ask for a little honesty as they do it? The day after President Obama unveiled his plan to bail out distressed mortgage holders, Treasury Secretary Geithner and Housing Secretary Donovan wrote an op-ed in USA Today explaining it. "Ordinarily, American homeowners don't need government help. … But these are no ordinary times," they say. But practically every American homeowner does get government help by being able to deduct mortgage interest from their taxes. And, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the taxpayer backed quasi-government mortgage behemoths, own or insure around 50 percent of all outstanding mortgages in the country. [Continue reading]

Spokesman says CNBC analyst should switch to drinking decaf © 2009 WorldNetDaily The White House apparently noticed yesterday when a CNBC analyst's impassioned critique of President Obama's mortgage-rescue plan became an Internet phenomenon. At the presidential press briefing today, press secretary Robert Gibbs eagerly responded to a reporter's question about Rick Santelli's rant amid sympathetic, angry traders at the CME Group in Chicago. "I've watched Mr. Santelli on cable the past 24 hours or so," Gibbs said, according to an account by the newssite Politico. "I'm not entirely sure where Mr. Santelli lives or in what house he lives, but the American people are struggling every day to meet their mortgages, stay in their jobs, pay their bills, send their kids to school. "I think we left a few months ago the adage that if it was good for a derivatives trader that it was good for Main Street," the White House spokesman continued. "I think the verdict is in on that." Santelli later responded to Gibbs in an MSNBC interview, pointing out his complaint was based more on philosophical differences than on details of the plan. Gibbs contended Santelli "has argued, I think quite wrongly, that this plan won't help everyone." "This plan helps people who have been playing by the rules. ... I would encourage him to read the president's plan. ... I'd be more than happy to have him come here to read it.

Armageddon looms large - By Hal Lindsey (on July 7, 2006)

It's worth nothing that a 1998 Iranian missile test had failed, detonating some 40 seconds after launch after reaching an altitude of 180 miles.

EMP attack: Overlooked catastrophe - By Hal Lindsey

Hal's article about the EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) weapon, which is created by detonating a nuclear device very high in the atmosphere, is somewhat sketchy about what that weapon can do. Basically, when the weapon is detonated, the pulse of the electromagnetic waves are capable of literally frying any type of unshielded electrical circuit, which includes computer chips - which are now found in vehicles, appliances, civilian or military aircraft, military weapons, and satellites. The area of the affects would be very wide spread. The altitude of the device when detonated will determine the extent of the area affected and carnage below. And this is why the last paragraph of his column makes a lot of sense:
I never thought I would say this, but just maybe this is the reason that in chapter 38 of Ezekiel he predicts that the armies that invade Israel in the last days are all riding horses. Could it be that Ezekiel's prophecy is more literal than any of us dared to believe?
The following part of the column also deserves a minor correction, just to help clarify it:
In an article I wrote for WorldNetDaily in July 2007, I noted a 1998 Iranian missile test that "failed, detonating some 40 seconds after launch after reaching an altitude of 180 miles. This is the approximate ideal altitude to detonate a nuclear warhead for an EMP attack on a country."
As I found out, the article was actually written in July of 2006, called "Armageddon looms large". read more | digg story, submitted by rightwingattila. who beat me to it by just a few minutes! :)

President of Special Interests (Problems in the Bail Out)

Senators Grassley and Sanders offered an amendment to the bank bailout bill to prevent companies receiving bailout money from discharging American employees and replacing them with foreigners on H-1B visas. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and immigration advocates, such as the American Immigration Lawyers Association, immediately tried to defeat it. On January 23 Senator Grassley wrote to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer:
“I am concerned that Microsoft will be retaining foreign guest workers rather than similarly qualified American employees when it implements its layoff plan. As you know, I want to make sure employers recruit qualified American workers first before hiring foreign guest workers. For example, I cosponsored legislation to overhaul the H-1B and L-1 visa programs to give priority to American workers and to crack down on unscrupulous employers who deprive qualified Americans of high-skilled jobs. Fraud and abuse is rampant in these programs, and we need more transparency to protect the integrity of our immigration system. “Last year, Microsoft was here on Capitol Hill advocating for more H-1B visas. The purpose of the H-1B visa program is to assist companies in their employment needs where there is not a sufficient American workforce to meet their technology expertise requirements. However, H-1B and other work visa programs were never intended to replace qualified American workers. Certainly, these work visa programs were never intended to allow a company to retain foreign guest workers rather than similarly qualified American workers, when that company cuts jobs during an economic downturn. “It is imperative that in implementing its layoff plan, Microsoft ensures that American workers have priority in keeping their jobs over foreign workers on visa programs. “My point is that during a layoff, companies should not be retaining H-1B or other work visa program employees over qualified American workers. Our immigration policy is not intended to harm the American workforce. I encourage Microsoft to ensure that Americans are given priority in job retention. Microsoft has a moral obligation to protect these American workers by putting them first during these difficult economic times.” [Continue reading]

In this our doom has become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Obama Sneaks Orders, Documents Through, Media Caught Unaware

Despite all claims to the contrary, President Obama has not been very vigilant about pursuing that idea of "transparency" he ballyhooed during the recent campaign. Politico reported on a host of documents, proclamations and executive orders that Obama has made in the last month and none of them were on-line. In fact, many were not even released...... read more | digg story, submitted by Pepper1024

If last week in Washington were the World Poker Tour, it would have been said that Barack Obama was "all in."

Congress' clueless credit system - By Chuck Norris

If our country is to survive, we must elect only those who show proof of fiscal discipline, refuse under all circumstances to increase our national deficit, and who commit to pass and live under a constitutional amendment for a balanced budget. If our incumbents voted for the bailouts, vote them out of office. America, it is up to you. Chuck writes:
How does one fight an administration and Congress that believes "only government" is the answer? Is it really true that in the absence of government intervention and doling out another trillion dollars of debt that our nation would certainly experience an economic holocaust? Former President G. W. Bush pushed the first trillion dollar bailout upon America. Nothing happened. President Obama has now pushed the second trillion dollar bailout upon America. Why should we believe there won't be a third, fourth, fifth or sixth governmental so-called stimulus? What other recourse do they have? [read more]

GM to Stop Making Cars

GM COO Fritz Henderson admits, "…The fact of the matter is, right now we're losing money on pretty much every car we make…So you can imagine how much money we'd save if we just stopped making them." I think I'm going to start a business that is in the business of making nothing, then ask the government for billions of dollars to bail me out.

Take courage! - By Greg Laurie

Have you ever been discouraged? Have you ever felt as though your life were a failure? Have you ever been frightened about the future? If so, you're not alone. None other than the great Apostle Paul experienced discouragement. However, Paul ignored the potential danger of returning to Jerusalem after his missionary journeys. God had a future for Paul, and God has a future for each of us! You will love Greg's column, so be sure to read it! Here is one paragraph that you will really appreciate:
Courage seems to be in short supply in this day and age. Courage, also known as bravery, will and fortitude, is the ability to confront fear, pain, risk, danger, uncertainty or intimidation. Physical courage is bravery in the face of physical pain, hardship or even the threat of death. Courage is something that flies against logic at times. To be courageous is to overcome suffering. Mark Twain said that courage is the mastery of fear, not the absence of fear. [Continue reading!]

When America was great - By Joseph Farah

Today, Joseph Farah has written about wisdom and insight: Not his own, but that of our prominent Founding Fathers – those who left us with the legacy of liberty – if only we were bright enough to keep it. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin had it right. We should have learned from what they had told us, wisdom from centuries ago.

It's the wisdom and insight of some of our prominent Founding Fathers – those who left us with the legacy of liberty – if only we were bright enough to keep it: "Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." – John Adams, letter to John Taylor, April 15, 1814 "Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor or private interest of any one man, family or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it." – John Adams, "Thoughts on Government," 1776 "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." – Benjamin Franklin, "On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor," November 1766

"But with respect to future debt; would it not be wise and just for that nation to declare in the constitution they are forming that neither the legislature, nor the nation itself can validly contract more debt, than they may pay within their own age, or within the term of 19 years." – Thomas Jefferson, September 6, 1789 "Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories." – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 14, 1781 "I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious." – Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Ludlow, September 6, 1824

Our new trillion-dollar credit card - By Henry Lamb

Everyone in America wants the government to do something to end the economic tailspin – quick. The problem, of course, is that there is little agreement on what the government should do. Democrats, generally speaking, want to put a trillion dollars in purchases on a new credit card. The new purchases will provide the goods and services the government wants the people to have. Republicans, generally speaking, want to reduce taxes sufficiently to leave a trillion dollars in the pockets of the people so they can purchase the goods and services they want. The proposed solution is an awkward combination of the goals of the Democrats and the Republicans. At best, it is little more than a Band-Aid on a cancer that has been growing in America for half a century. It took Pearl Harbor to convince Americans of the threats to freedom that gathered in the 1930s. When called upon, Americans focused like a laser beam on doing whatever it took to defeat the enemies of freedom. Congress borrowed the money necessary to stoke the nation's manufacturing capacity to produce the goods needed to defeat the enemy. Men went to war; and women went to work. [Continue reading]

Phoenix Arizona Number Two City In The World For Kidnappings

What Do You Do With Writer's Block and Idea Gridlock?

By Lewis Green Scream. Pray. Read. Reach out to others. Drink. Take a nap. Drive. Take time off. Run. Physical labor. I have tried each of those among a variety of other techniques. They each work sometimes and the results vary. But here's the story that works best for me. I started writing professionally at age 16, when I got a stringer job covering my high school's varsity sports. What was weird was that I played varsity football and basketball and was the co-captain of the varsity baseball team. So my first job presented challenges--how do I cover something in which I am a participant and still be objective? Well, you can't really, and that was a good lesson learned. Therefore, I focused on the facts and weaved those facts into a first-person account in which I saw the games played from outside myself. [Continue reading]

By Kevin L. Kearns and Alan Tonelson Monday, January 19, 2009 Submitted to the Presidential Transition Team by the U.S. Business and Industry Council, January 15, 2009: America’s economy is in danger because Washington and Wall Street have forgotten the bases for successful capitalism and sustainable prosperity – creating genuine wealth by producing, and thus supporting first-world living standards with earnings. For too long, consuming, borrowing, inflating assets, and reshuffling paper wealth were treated as adequate substitutes. The top priority of any stimulus or economic recovery plan must be refocusing American business on producing the goods and related services that Americans want and that can generate middle-class incomes for the great majority of working families. And if these goods and services are not produced at home, they won’t generate the needed incomes at home. Achieving this goal requires greatly strengthening domestic manufacturing – which (a) dominates the economy’s genuinely productive segment; and (b) is also the only sector of the economy with a proven record of enabling large numbers of working class Americans to earn middle class wages and benefits.
