Charles Krauthammer on the real Obama showing his true colors with the divisionist speak that has been happening on the campaign trail.
I think this is how the great post-partisan, post-racial promise of Obama ends; not with a bang or a whimper but with a display of unbelievable presidential smallness. He isn’t only urging hispanics to punish enemies, he’s criticizing hispanics who don’t. And this is the man who told us, this is what propelled him into the spotlight of the country, ‘we’re not a blue America, we’re not a red America, we’re not a black America, hispanic America‘. Now he tells us on the eve on an election, we actually are a hispanic America, anglo America. We aren’t only separate, but in a sense, we are enemies. I don’t even think he uses the word enemy when describing the president of Iran or Hugo Chavez, but he uses it against anglos who believe in the Arizona law. Good grief. I mean this really is something that people who believed him in ’08, I think believed a lie, against all evidence. This really is a man who sat in the pew of Jeremiah Wright for twenty years; some of us have suspected, was not exactly the man who hovered above it all and would bring us all together the way he promised, and I think this display, even though it is pre-election, you can write it off as an extreme, I think this really is the authentic Obama, and I think it is really disappointing.
I personally utterly disagree with A.B. Stoddard (at 3:00) when she states that Obama is going to offer an olive branch to the Republicans, run to the center and reach across the aisle after the pubs take control of the congress because he will be running for re-election. Where has this pundit been hanging out for the last 3 years? We know the Narcissist-In-Chief isn’t going to back down, the whining will continue, and the ratcheting up of hard-core speech like ‘punish our enemies‘ and ‘boot upon their necks‘ will become a daily headline on Drudge. We also know that Obama will not (after much thought and urging from Mishy Antoinette) run for re-election; rather taking the cash and notoriety and running for a far distant country. How does he expect to meet the eligibility issue that is surely going to come up, yet again, when he runs for re-election?
Glenn has a studio audience today discussing getting off the couch and voting in next week’s election. He has powerhouse constitutional conservatives, Michele Bachmann, Jason Chaffetz, and Jim DeMint as guests speaking to what they need to help them as they go into the lion’s den in the District of Criminals.

Stay focused people, and try to keep your tempers in check when the voter fraud becomes even more blatant than it is now. The progressives have been exposed; there are many more constitutional conservatives than the left realizes, and the true battle begins on November 3rd.
Neil Barofsky isn’t making any friends over at Treasury right now, considering he is slamming their changing methodology (without telling the American public) that make the losses at AIG looks significantly less than what they were 6 months ago.
Is anybody surprised? No; didn’t think so. I know I will have died and gone to heaven when the Federal Reserve no longer exists and the big wall street banks aren’t telling our government how it’s going to be anymore.
“In our view, this is a significant failure in their transparency,” said Neil M. Barofsky, the inspector general, in an interview on Monday.
In early October, the Treasury issued a report predicting that the taxpayers would ultimately lose just $5 billion on their investment in A.I.G., a remarkable outcome, since the insurance company was extended $182 billion in taxpayer money in the early months of its rescue. The prediction of a modest loss, widely reported as A.I.G., the Federal Reserve and the Treasury rushed to complete an exit plan, contrasted with an earlier prediction by the Treasury that the taxpayers would lose $45 billion.
And as an added bonus, Neil Cavuto covers the story of the Treasury looking for employees that know their way around the Freedom Of Information Act specifics. How’s that for transparency…? The Judge weighs in.
As the active service military are denied their vote, rampant and BLATANT voter fraud is occurring as the Democrats writhe in their death throes. They know they are going down, and even though the Republicans are going to avoid the appearance of being democrats by not celebrating on the evening of 11.2; this Monster will be doing the utmost to enjoy this rare moment of victory as the fight will have to continue anew on 11.3.2010. Every single one of us is going to be required to do babysitter duty with the Republicans now.
LAS VEGAS — Some voters in Boulder City complained on Monday that their ballot had been cast before they went to the polls, raising questions about Clark County’s electronic voting machines.
Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.
Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.
“Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”
Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.
Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.
“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”
We all know that this has been going on for a very long time (Nixon/Kennedy), but recently, Wayne Dibofsky, Associate Director, NJEA (New Jersey Education Association) stated that in 1997, voter fraud was committed when voting machines which were already ‘loaded, locked and voted‘ were delivered to a NJEA union office (which was not a voting precinct). Mr. Dibofsky also states that he called the clerk’s office and was told to ‘leave well enough alone’.
Daniel Hannan being interviewed by Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institute (yet another think tank) about why the tea party movement succeeds in America and why it is doomed to fail in Europe. In America, open primaries are an integral part of the process, whereas in Europe, party leaders picked the candidates and ‘present them to the people’.
(Editor’s Note: If DHS didn’t absolutely detest me a few days ago, they will now…and the file keeps getting bigger AND this article doesn’t even cover the possibility of bio-warfare research being done.)
Nine days ago, I was sent the premiere of Jesse Ventura’s ‘Conspiracy Theory’ about Plum Island Animal Disease Center off of Long Island, New York. The Plum Island program made for some very entertaining and sensational television that left many questions unanswered, and it is actually worth watching because of the very questions raised including the Montauk Monster, Erich Traub’s research with ticks, and Lyme Disease. I have spent hours trying to independently substantiate Ventura’s claims with more than one reliable source. I have not been able to accomplish that, but I did come across the end of one string that Mr. Ventura’s team did not cover in any depth.
On June 1, 2003, control of Plum Island was transferred from USDA to the Dept. of Homeland Security. In January, 2006, DHS began site selection for the new National Bio and Agro Defense Facility even though, at that time, it was illegal to introduce live foot and mouth disease virus on the mainland.
21 U.S.C. § 113a : US Code – Section 113A: Establishment of research laboratories for foot-and- mouth disease and other animal diseases; research contracts; employment of technicians and scientists; appropriations
The Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to establish research laboratories, including the acquisition of necessary land, buildings, or facilities, and also the making of research contracts under the authority contained in section 427i(a) of title 7, for research and study, in the United States or elsewhere, of foot-and- mouth disease and other animal diseases which in the opinion of the Secretary constitute a threat to the livestock industry of the United States:
Provided, That no live virus of foot-and-mouth disease may be introduced for any purpose into any part of the mainland of the United States (except coastal islands separated therefrom by water navigable for deep-water navigation and which shall not be connected with the mainland by any tunnel) unless the Secretary determines that it is necessary and in the public interest for the conduct of research and study in the United States(except at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York) and issues a permit under such rules as the Secretary shall promulgate to protect animal health, except that the Secretary of Agriculture may transport said virus in the original package across the mainland under adequate safeguards, and except further, that in the event of outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in this country, the Secretary of Agriculture may, at his discretion, permit said virus to be brought into the United States under adequate safeguards. To carry out the provisions of this section, the Secretary is authorized to employ technical experts or scientists: Provided, That the number so employed shall not exceed five and that the maximum compensation for each shall not exceed the highest rate of grade 18 of the General Schedule. There is authorized to be appropriated such sums as Congress may deem necessary; in addition, the Secretary is authorized to utilize in carrying out this section, funds otherwise available for the control or eradication of such diseases.
Where does DHS decide to put a (now) $650 million dollar lab (employing 300) with several live zoonotic pathogens? Why, of course, the heart of ‘Tornado Alley’ at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, where the economic fallout from an escaped bug will be the greatest (not to mention the human and animal toll).
NBAF in Manhattan, Kansas, will be a state-of-the-art biocontainment facility for the study of foreign animal, emerging and zoonotic (transmitted from animals to humans) diseases that threaten the U.S. animal agriculture and public health. NBAF will provide and strengthen our nation with critical capabilities to conduct research, develop vaccines and other countermeasures, and train veterinarians in preparedness and response against these diseases. For the past 50 years, the Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC) has served our nation as the primary facility to conduct this research. However, PIADC is nearing the end of its life-cycle and needs to be replaced in order to meet U.S. research requirements and ensure the timely development of countermeasures in the event of an outbreak. NBAF meets that need and will serve as a replacement for the PIADC facility. Strategically, NBAF will boast of new and expanded capabilities, specifically, Biosafety Level (BSL) 4 containment for the study of high-consequence diseases affecting large livestock.
