What you have before your eyes is a document made up of four parts. The first part gives some background information about the country and more so that you can better understand the second part--the most-important part--which is made up of quotes and thoughts presented in talks or speeches by Barack Obama, Michelle Obama (who is the wife of Barack Obama), and Reverend Jeremiah Wright (who is based in Chicago and was the pastor for Barack Obama for about twenty years). The third part presents some conclusions and reviews based on the quotes. The fourth part presents information about prominent people who supported Barack Obama for president of the United States of America in 2008 (at least), which means they supported someone who beliefs were against the individual and were for socialism or even, maybe, communism. And the fifth part notes a few sources used to create this document.
*** Part One ***
When a person comes to live in the United States of America from some other country, one of the problems that the person can have is learning who can be detrimental to the person--by keeping the person stupid or by keeping the person misinformed, especially about political subjects; for instance, the person will be at a loss to know what politician is really a bad politician, even if a politician has been voted into office many times. When a person comes to the country, the person might think that voting for a "Democrat" (or Democratic Party) is the thing to do, since the word "democratic" has a close association in written structure to "democracy"; of course, the belief would be incorrect, and it is especially different for the national election of November 4, 2008, when one of the candidates for the president of the United States of America--Barack Obama--has the label of a "Democratic" but is really a "communist/socialist"; the two main political parties--the Republican Party and the Democrat Party--have been both aimed at "democracy" as a rule in the past. When a person comes to the country, the person might think truthful knowledge and reliable knowledge can be easily found in commonplace mainstream newspapers and television news programs, given what they seemed to have heard about freedom of the press in the country before they had arrived and given that they might have come from a country in which the press is controlled by the government, but it is not the case that mainstream newspapers and television news programs provided reliable knowledge and truthful knowledge all the time.
I now present some facts about the United States of America here so that the remainder of the document can be understood. The underling government structure of the country is defined by a document called the U.S. Constitution, and, for one, the document sets up the three branches of the federal government--the Executive Branch (the top member of which is the president of the country), the Legislative Branch (which is made up of two main parts--the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate), and the Judicial Branch (which is the court system), and a main feature of the document is "The Bill of Rights," which spells out rights for each individual in the country. In the United States of America, it is the individuals who own the government, and those who are elected to office or are appointed to office work for the individuals--the citizens--or are employees of the individuals (or citizens), and the government does not exist for the citizens to work for it. In essence, the citizens elect the president and the members of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. Between 2006 and about the election of 2008, the president was a man who was a member of the Republican Party, and the U.S. Congress (which is a term to identify the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate) was made up of more members of the Democratic Party than the Republican Party, meaning the Democratic Party had "control" of the U.S. Congress (it is possible for control to change every two years to another party because an election is held every two years), and it is really the Congress that determines much about what federal money is spent on what, though it is the president who may be able to block money from not being spent by not signing bills passed by the U.S. Congress (when the president signs a bill it becomes "law" (or an "act"), but it is possible for a bill to become law even if the president does not sign it (but the ways in which that can happen will not be discussed here)). A bill that is passed on to the president can be from dozens-of-pages long to hundreds-of-pages long (for instance, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 was 451-pages long), and a bill can have a main part (or purpose) and have subordinate parts unrelated to the the main part, and the subordinate parts can be called various names, such as attachments, and these attachments can be reasons a bill will not get passed because they lead to, for instance, superfluous spending and unnecessary spending or foolish spending (something that might be informally defined as "pork"). The top level of the Judicial Branch of the federal government is the U.S. Supreme Court, which is made up of nine persons, who have been appointed by the president and have received confirmation by the members of the U.S. Senate (which is made up of two persons from each state), and the president is also involved in appointing other federally associated judges (for other types of courts, such as the federal "appeals" court system).
Three three main topics must be defined--(1) socialism and socialist, (2) Marxism and Marxist, and (3) communism and communist.
Webster's Third New International Dictionary (unabridged) defines "socialism" as: "...any of various theories or social and political movements advocating or aiming at collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and control of the distribution of goods...." and defines a "socialist" as a person who is involved in "...adhering to or favoring socialism...."
Webster's Third New International Dictionary (unabridged) defines "Marxism" as '...the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx, Friedrich Engels, or their followers esp: a theory and practice of socialism developed by or associated with Marx and including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, economic determination of human actions and institutions, the class struggle as the fundamental force in history, and a belief that increasing concentration of industrial control in the capitalist class and the consequent intensification of class antagonisms and of misery among the workers will lead to a revolutionary seizure of power by and the dictatorship of the proletariat and to the establishment of a classless society..." and defines a "Marxist" as "..a follower of Marx...."
Webster's Third New International Dictionary (unabridged) defines "communism" as "... 1 a: a theory advocating elimination of private ownership of property or capital b: a system or condition real or imagined in which goods are owned commonly rather than privately and are available as needed to each one in a unified group sometimes limited, sometimes inclusive, and often composed of members living and working together...2...a: a social and political doctrine or movement based upon revolutionary Marxian socialism that interprets history as a relentless class war eventually to result everywhere in the victory of the proletariat and the social ownership of the means of production with relative social and economic equality for all and ultimately to lead to a classless society...."
A number of events related to Barack Obama during the campaign period must not be forgotten. Many mainstream news entities, such as the news department of NBC-TV, did little investigation about what Barack Obama is, and they did little reporting about Barack Obama's ties to William Ayers (a communist based in Chicago, Illinois)--ties that not only existed when Barack Obama was really young but also when he was in his mid-years, such as around 40 years of age--and ties to Reverend Jeremiah Wright (of Chicago, Illinois), who was Barack Obama's pastor about two decades; for example, many of the news entities did not report that Barack Obama wrote the foreword to a book written by William Ayers. In Germany, in mid-2008, Barack Obama finished a world tour of sorts, and during the stop in Germany, he put down America, noting it has faults. Many news entities did not report clearly that the spark to the economic crisis of late-mid-2008 was directly linked to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and polices or doings of people involved with the Democratic Party. Such shows as The Late Show with David Letterman (hosted by David Letterman) and The Daily Show (with Jon Stewart) did many jokes to down grade John McCain and Sarah Palin. In October 2008, a plumber in Toledo, Ohio, asked Barack Obama a question, and Barack Obama talked about "spreading the wealth," and it led to many persons in the main stream media, such as television people, doing investigations and reports about the plumber for many days (trying to make the plumber look bad) and avoiding as much talk about what Barack Obama said (which showed he was a communist/socialist) as possible. The main media did little to show up lies or misinformation that the Barack Obama campaign used to draw in people; for instance, the proposed tax plan could not work, and from mid-summer 2008 to early November 2008, the idea of not taxing people below "$250,000" worth of income (whether net or gross, which was not made clear) went down to $200,000 and lower amounts in statements made.
*** Part Two ***
This part of the document provides a number of quotes from four persons--Barack Obama, Michelle Obama (the wife of Barack Obama), Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. I have taken all the words of the quotes and presented them--I have tried not to leave out any "ahs" and such, as is often when quoting takes place with the information that I present. The quotes show the type of nonsense that Barack Obama thinks and promotes.
"...We ended up launching a war that should never have been authorized and should have never been waged and for which we now have spent four-hundred-billion dollars and have seen over three-thousand lives of the bravest young Americans wasted...."
"...There's a lot of change going on outside of the court, hum, that, you know the judges have to essentially take judicial notice of. You've got World War II. You've got, dah, ah, ah, the doctrines of Nazism that we are fighting against that start looking uncomfortably similar to what's going on, ah, back here at home...."
"...I think we can say that, ah, ah, the Constitution reflected a enormous blind spot in the culture that carries on until this day, and, dah, that the framers had that same blind spot. And I, I don't think the two views are contradictory to say that it was a remarkable political document, ah, that paved the way for where we are now, and to say that it also, ah, reh, reflected the fundimental flaw of this country that continues to this day...."
"...You know, if, if you look at, uhm, the, the victories and failures of the Civil Rights movement, hum, and it's litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights, ah, in previously disposessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order, as long as I could pay for it, I would be okay. Ah, but the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, ah, and served more basic issues of political and, and, dah, economic justice in this society. And, ah, to that extent as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren court, ah, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution at least as it's been interpreted and Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. Ah, and that hasn't shifted, and one of the, ah, I think, ah, tragedies of the Civil Right movements was, uhm, because the Civil Rights movement became so court focused, ah, I think that there was tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and, and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive, dah, change, ah, and, dah, in some ways, we still suffer from that...." [Note: Barack Obama made this statement in 2001 during a radio interview on WBZ in Chicago.]
"...I, I don't understand when people are gonna around worrying about, we need to have English only. They, they want to pass a law, we want just, ah, we want English only. Now, I agree that immigrants should learn English. I agree with that. But, but undertstand this, instead of worrying about whether, ah, immigrants can learn English--they'll learn English--you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language. You know it's embarrasing, it's embarrasing when, when, ah, when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German, and we go over to Europe, and, and, all we can say is 'merci beaucoup.' Right!...." [It was said in mid-summer 2008 in Powder Springs, GA.]
"...You know maybe, I'm, I'm showing my bias here as, ah, a legislator as well as a law professor, but, dah, yeah, I'm not optimistic about bringing about major, ah, redistributive, ah, ah, change, ah, through the courts. Hum. The institution just isn't structured that way. You, you just said look at very rare examples where in during the desegration era, the court was willing to, for example, order, ah, ah, you know, changes that cost money to local school district and the court was very uncomforable with it, it was hard to manage, it was hard to figure out, ah, you start getting into all sorts of, ah, separation of powers issues that, ah, you know, in terms of, of the court monitoring or engaging in a process of essentially is administrative ... The court's just not very good at it, and politically it's very hard to legitimize opinions from, ah, from the court in that regards. So I mean I think that, ah, although you can craft theoretical justifications for it legally, uhm, you know I think you can any, any three of us sitting here could, could come up with, ah, a rational for bringing about economic change through the courts...."
"...We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded...."
"...It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got the chance at success too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody...."
"...Beyond the loyalty to America of ideals, beyond a willingness to defend on behalf of those ideals, I also believe that patriotism must, if it is to mean anything, involve the willingness to sacrifice, to give up something we value on behalf of a larger cause. Now, I won't pretend that any of this is going to be easy. It won't be. It's going to be hard. I don't pretend that this is not gonna come with a cost. There are gonna be costs. We all need to sacrifice. We're all gonna need to put our weight behind these changes, because now more than ever, we're all in this together. What this crisis has taught us is, at the end of the day, there's no real separation between Main Street and Wall Street. There's only the road we're traveling on as Americans. And we'll will rise or fall on that journey as one nation, as one people, and, and that's why I think it's important for the president to set a tone that says, 'All of us are going to contribute, all of us are going to make sacrifices, and it means that, yes, we may have to cut some spending--although I disagree with Senator McCain about an across-the-board freeze...."
"...I knew that the American people were decent and generous, willing to work hard and sacrifice for future generations...."
"...No one's forcing you to care. You can take your diploma, walk off this stage, and chase only after the big house and the nice suits and the other things our money culture says that you should buy. You can choose to narrow your concern with life in a way that tries to keep your story separate from America's. But I hope you don't. Not because you have an obligation to those who are less fortunate--although I believe you do have that obligation--not because you have a debt to all those who helped you get to where you are today--although I do believe you have that debt to pay--it's because you have an obligation to yourself, because our individual salvation depends on collective salvation, because thinking only about yourself, fulfilling your immediate wants and needs betrays a poverty of ambition. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential and discover the roll that you'll play in writing the next great chapter in the American story...."
"...And that's why I won't just ask for your vote as a candidate, I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I'm president of the United States. It won't be a call issued in one speech or one program, I want this to be a central cause of my presidency. We will ask Americans to serve. We will create new opportunities for Americans to serve. And we will direct that service to our most pressing national challenges...."
"...But the burden of global citizenship continues to bind us together. A change of leadership in Washington will not lift this burden. In this new century, Americans and Europeans alike will be required to do more, not less...."
"..Now the world will watch and remember what we do here--what we do with this moment. Will we extend our hand to the people in the forgotten corners of this world who yearn for lives marked by dignity and opportunity; by security and justice? Will we lift the child in Bangladesh from poverty, shelter the refugee in Chad, and banish the scourage of AIDS in our time? We stand for the human rights of the dissident in Burma, the blogger in Iran, or the voter in Zimbabwe? Will we give meaning to the words 'never again' in Darfur? Will we acknowledge that there is no more powerful example than the one each of our nations projects to the world? Will we welcome immigrants from different lands, and shun discrimination against those who don't look like us or worship like we do, and keep the promise of equality and opportunity for all of our people? People of Berlin--people of the world--this is our moment. This is our time. I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions...."
"...What I've said is that we would put a, ah, cap-and-trade system in place that is more, that is as aggresive--if not more aggressive--than anybody-body's elses out there. So, if somebody wants to build a coal-fired plant, they can! It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted...When I was asked earlier about, ah, the issue of coal, ah, under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket...." [He said it to the San Francisco Chroncile editorial board in January 2008.]
Through the way in which I presented the quotes, not leaving out such things as "ahs," you can see Barack Obama is not such a smooth speaker really--he is when he has the help of a teleprompter.
"....What we've learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback, is making a comeback in--let me tell you something, for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. Ah, and I've been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud...." [She said this in 2008 in Madison, Wisconsin.}
"...Barack stood up that day, and he spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about 'the world as it is and the way that it should be.' And he said that all too often we accept the distance between the two, and we settle for the world as it is, even when it doesn't reflect our values and aspirations. But it reminded us that we also know what the world should be like, should look like. He said, 'We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like,' and he urged us to believe in ourselves, to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be. And isn't that the great American story?"
"...And Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your division, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone, that you push yourself to be better, and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual...."
"...We have lost the understanding that in a democracy we have a mutual obligation to one another, that we cannot measure our greatness in the society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our greatness by the least of these. That we have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done. That is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this race who understands that, that before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls--our souls are broken in this nation...."
"...2008, we are still a nation that is too divided. We live in isolation and because of that isolation, we feel one another, we don't know our neighbors, we don't talk, we believe that our pain is our own, we don't realize that the struggles and the challenges of all of us are the same. We are too isolated. And we are still a nation that is still too cynical. We look at it as them and they as opposed to us. We don't engage because we are still too cynical...."
"...And see what happens when you live in a nation with a vast majority of Americans are struggling everyday to reach an ever shifting and moving bar, then what happens in that nation is that people do become isolated, they do live in a level of division because, see, when you're that busy struggling all the time, which most people that you know and I know are, then you don't have time to get to know your neighbor, you don't have time to reach out and have conversations, to share stories, if fact, you feel very alone in your struggle because you feel that somehow it must be your fault that you're struggling so hard. Everybody else must be doing okay, I must be doing something wrong so you hide. And when you live in a nation with a vast majority...."
Reverend Jeremiah Wright (who, in essence, said the words loudly and angrily):
"...We can see clearly the confusion in the mind of a few Muslims--and please notice, I did not say all Muslims, I said a few Muslims--who see a lie as condoning killing and killing any and all who don't believe what they believe. They call it Jihad. We can see clearly the confusion in their minds, but we cannot see clearly what it is that we do. We call it crusade when we turn right around and say to our God condones the killing of innocent civilians as a necessary means to and an end that we say that God understands collateral damage, we say that God knows how to forgive friendly fire, we say that God will bless the shock and awe as we take over unilaterally another country, call it a coalition, cause we got three guys from Australia going against the United Nations, going against the majority of Christians, Muslims, and Jews throughout the world making a preemptive strike in the name of God. We cannot see how what we are doing is the same thing as al-Qaeda is doing under a different color flag, calling on the name of a different God that sanction and approve our murder and our mayhem!...." [Special note: The poor audio quality made it difficult to write out this quote, and my presentation might have a few slight defects.]
"...The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law, and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No! No! No! Not 'God Bless America.' 'God Damn America!' It's in the Bible for killing innocent people. 'God Damn America' for treating us citizens as less than human!..."
"....We bombed Hiroshima! We bombed Nagasaki! And nuke bomb more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon. And we never batted an eye!..."
"....We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africa and now we are indignant because the stuff that we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards! America's chickens are comin' home to roost!..."
Barack Obama (in 1995):
"...[A woman notes to Barack Obama that Reverent Wright is a wonderful man] Right, and, duh, who is, who is my pastor and, duh, he is a wonderful man. And I think it, that's an example of, he's a pastor of a large congregation in Chicago, and one of the interesting things that I discover in my journey to discover what my identity is and who my father is is, is also discovering sort of my own faith, which, which is not necessarily a traditional faith. I don't come out of an institutionalized religious setting, but, ah, what becomes important to me as I work with, ah, churches on the south side of Chicago in lower income neighborhoods, ah, is to realize that...all the stories and songs of the church, you know, that the hope that is embodied in the church, that the sense of, of, of, of liberation that is embodied in the African, historically African-American church, is really something that, that, that moves me deeply, and I think, ah, ah, is the main pillar around which a lot of inner cities, ah, communities are going to be built. Reverend Wright, ah, ah, my pastor, who I speak about in a chapter in the book, I think represents the best of what, ah, the black church has to offer...."
Louis Farrakhan (in 2008):
"...You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking...."
Barack Obama (January 2008):
"...Ah, we will, we are working currently on, ah, our budget plans. Ah, we are beginning consultations with members of Congress around how we expect to approach the deficit. Ah, we expect that, dis, discussion around entitlements will be a part--a central part--of those plans. Ah, and I would expect that by February in line with, ah, the announcement of at least a rough budget outline that we will have more to say about how we're going to approach entitlement spending...." [This was not a rehearsed speech.]
Barack Obama (January 8, 2008, at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia):
"...Throughout America's history, there have been some years that simply rolled into the next without much notice or fanfare, and then there are the years that come along once in a generation--the kind that mark a clean break from a troubled past and set a new course for our nation. This is one of those years. We start 2009 in the midst of a crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime, a crisis that has only deeped over the last few weeks...." (We should take a "clean break" from what to what? The federal govenment--its Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae--was a big cause of the problem. He seems to be advocating the abandoning of business and the taking up socialism and communism. What garbage his mind is filled with!)
"...There is no doubt that the cost of this plan will be considerable. It will certainly add to the budget deficit in the short term. But equally certain are the consequences of doing too little or nothing at all for that will lead to an even greater deficit of jobs, incomes, and confidence in our economy. It is true that we cannot depend on government alone to create jobs or long-term growth, but at this particular moment, only government can provide the short-term boost necessary to lift us from a recession this deep and severe--only government can break the cycle that are crippling our economy where a lack of spending leads to lost jobs, which leads to even less spending, when inability to lend and borrow stops growth and leads to even less credit...." [What is this nonsense? "Only government" can save the day! What garbage his mind is filled with!]
*** Part Three ***
The Barack Obama campaign was a depressing campaign, never really highlighting the good that the country is and never promoting the "individual," and Barack Obama always talked about individuals having to work for the government and do for the government and sacrifice for the government, which is not what the country is about--the people are the country and own the country and are not like the citizens of China (sheep or ants under the ultimate control of a few)--and Barack Obama made speeches that looked in style (because of the visual presentation) to those of Adolph Hitler (of Germany in the 1930s and 1940s), and he presented himself as a savior or a king or a messiah, which the individual in the country does not need, since the president is an employee of the citizens of the country, and Barack Obama has never started up a business or run a business--he has only been a talker--and he has compared things being done in the country to things that were done in Nazi Germany (during the 1930s and 1940s), and he considers the U.S. Constitution, which was designed to protect the individual, a flawed document, because it does not give the government more power over the people, and he feels the court system should be used to redistribute the wealth in the country, and he believes only the government can create opportunities....
*** Part Four ***
This document and other documents associated with the Web site of The Hologlobe Press (A Collection of Words--Just Words--That Show Dangerous People and THOUGHTS AND PIECES OF LOGIC for the individual woman and the individual man) show what Barack Obama is. Now, "for the record," I provide a list of people who supported and promoted Barack Obama for president, though Barack Obama has clearly made statements like those offered by a hard socialist (or maybe even a communist), so that naive individuals in the country, new individuals to the country, and the many misinformed and underinformed individuals in the country will have an idea of what persons should not be trusted, and the names of people are provided so that an individual can investigate for the self what the people are (and if they wish disregard my warning, but at least I have provided a warning, which might not otherwise be received). In additon, "for the record," I provide information about what news entities supported Barack Obama, and, I make clear, in 2007 and 2008, many of the widely seen or distributed major news entities did poor work--purposely or not--to show that Barack Obama is.
Here is an aside: The term "Democrat" is hard to define. The "Democratic Party" is one of the two main political parties in the United States of America, and a member of the party is considered a "Democat." Generally speaking, a Democrat is considered a "liberal," and the range that defines "liberal" can range from a pure communist to someone that is nearly a Republican (which can be hard to define), who is a member of the Republican Party, which is the other main political party in the United States of America.
Here are the people that you must watch out for and worry about:
Mitch Albom (a columnist and radio talk-show host): This man hosts The Mitch Albom Program on WJR-AM (760), Detroit, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and the program gets syndicated nationally. (For more information on Mitch Albom, you should see the television-history-themed document entitled T.H.A.T. #55, which can be reached by hitting this link: T.H.A.T. #55.) On April 15, 2009, Mitch Albom used his radio show to talk about the "tea parties" that took place or were taking place around the country, and, for one, he tried to pin much of the economic problem on former U.S. President George W. Bush, and Mitch Albom said that people were protesting against the wrong person (Barack Obama), and I say that Mitch Albom was lying about why people were protesting or was ignorant to what was going on, since the people were protesting the actions taken and initiated by Barack Obama since Inauguration Day (January 20, 2009), protests spurred on by fear built up within them after having learned since Inauguration Day what Barack Obama really is (the people had been lied to or kept ignorant to what Barack Obama was and is by many of the main media entities, such as NBC-TV and MSNBC, before the national election took place in November 2008), and, by the way, Mitch Albom said, for instance, that, for the protestors, it is "easy to blame Barack Obama." (Mitch Albom has it all wrong, and Mitch Albom is a dangerous man!) By the way, on April 15, 2009, one telephone caller of Mitch Albom's implied that, since Barack Obama won, the losing side (such as people who did not vote for Barack Obama) should simply join in on Barack Obama's policies, since Barack Obama is the U.S. President, but I say that that is ignorant thought, since citizens should protest when a politican is doing dangerous things that can hurt the country (on this day, I was hearing reports that protestors were not only Republicans but also Democrats, the latter of whom did not sign on through their vote for such changes that Barack Obama is making or is proposing, having been unaware of how radical Barack Obama was at the time they voted and how radical Barack Obama is).
On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling in a roughly year-long case known as Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, and the decision gave some freedom-of-speech rights back to people. During the case, the main issue evolved from the distribution of a 2008 video (about Hillary Clinton and why she should not be elected to the U.S. Presidency) to the distribution of much more, such as books, and it could be argued well by me that the U.S. Supreme Court made a decision that removed the ability of the federal government to censor what books and other media could and could not be published (and evidence of that can be seen in my document entitled Fairness?: A Guide for the Individual in the United States of America, which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document). In an article in the Detroit Free Press for Sunday, January 24, 2010, entitled "Big Biz needed no help in election game," Mitch Albom showed he supports centralize government, maybe like a communist government, and censorship by not bringing up the "book" issue and by putting down businesses, such as when he wrote, "...There is a dangerous, misguided movement out there that if we just let business rule the nation, all will be well--markets will take care of themselves, health care, jobs, just let business handle it. You know who says that the loudest? Business...." One legislated law that was struck down through the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court was the inability of businesses without connections to media businesses to spend money on advertising that promoted one candidate over another 60 days before an election (since 2002, companies associated with media entities had not been restricted by the feature), and Mitch Albom did not mention that idea in his article (either because he is dumb or evil, both cases of which make him dangerous to you). By the way, over the decades, the government has created an incredible amount of legislation and law the regulates businesses--from little businesses to big businesses.
David Axelrod (an advisor to Barack Obama):
Harry Smith was hosting Face the Nation on CBS-TV on Sunday, April 19, 2009, and Axelrod was asked David Axelrod about the "tea parties" of Wednesday, April 15, 2009. Axelrod said, "...Ah, look, I think anytime, I think anytime that you have severe economic conditions, there is always an, an element of disaffection that can mutate into something, ah, ah, ah, that's, that's, that's unhealthy, ah." Harry Smith asked, "Is this unhealthy?" Axelrod then said, "Well, ah, we're in, this is a country where we value our liberty, our liberties and our ability to express ourselves and, so far, these are, ah, expressions. Now, one thing that I would say is, ah, the thing that bewilders me is this president just cut taxes for ninety-five percent of the American people, so, ah, I, I think the tea bags, ah, should be directed elsewhere, ah, because he [Barack Obama] certainly understands the burden that people face...." [Axelrod put down the American individual, and Axelrod noted that the tea parties, which was protests against the policies of Barack Obama and more, could mutate into something bad, and that is nonsense, because the protests (the "tea parties") were put together and held by people who believe in, for one, the rules contained within The U.S. Constitution for the individual. The "ninety-five percent" is a lie or a sham figure!]
William Ayers (a communist): This man is based in the Chicago area; is currently on the staff of the University of Chicago, Illinois, in the education department; is considered an "educational theorist"; was a leader of the Students for a Democratic Society (or the "SDS") in 1968-1969, which was a tradical political group; was a cofounder of the "Weather Underground" in 1969, which was a terrrorist group in the country; and wrote the book entitled Fugitive Days: A Memoir, which was published in 2001.
Steve Balkin (a professor of economics): This man talked with talk-show-host Frank Beckman of WJR-AM, Detroit, Michigan, during part of The Frank Beckmann Show, on October 28, 2008, and listeners learned he is a man who promotes selling Michigan to China or having China in some way buy Michigan so that Michigan might get out of financial straights--this man is a professor at Roosevelt University, Chicago, Illinois. (He advocates selling Michigan to a communist country, and he is allowed to be a professor at a university in the the United States of Michigan, so he is a professor to avoid if you are a student!)
Paul Begala (a liberal political consultant and political commentator):
This man was a paid consult to Freddie Mac around 2008, when the 2008 economic crash was the big event; Freedie Mac was one of the federal-government-tied mortage-related entities that had to be offiically taken over by the U.S. government in 2008.
Joseph Biden (a Democrat): This man was a U.S. Senator for the State of Delaware until January 20, 2009 (he had been first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 (taking office in 1973)), and he is the Vice President of the United States of America.
On Thursday, April 30, 2009, Joseph Biden was on Today and stated: "...I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now. It's not that it's going to Mexico, it's you're in a confined aircraft, when one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft. That's me, I, I would not be at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway. Hum, so, from my perspective, what it relates to is mitigation--if you're out in the middle of a field and someone sneezes, that's one thing, if you're in a closed aircraft or closed container, closed car, closed classroom, it's a different thing...." (There was a problem with swine flu in the news, and the question related to the answer was about whether Jospeh Biden would or would not recommend a member his family going to Mexico.) [By the way, you should see "Thought Number Five" of THOUGHTS AND STATEMENTS ABOUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA for the individual woman and the individual man.]
On Wednesday, May 27, 2009, Jospeh Biden made this lofty statement: "...But it also needs a special brand of strategic thinking that are gained only in the thin air of Colorado Springs and the windy air of Colorado Springs. What am I going to tell the prez, when I tell him his teleprompter is broken." (There is laughter from the crowd.) "What will he do then?"
In 2008, Joseph Biden, known for saying nonsense things, said this related to a man who was in a wheel chair: "...Ah, ah, Chuck Graham.--state's senator is here--stand up, Chuck, let 'em see, ya. Ooh! God love, ya. What am I talking about? I'll tell you what, you're making everybody stand up, though, pal. I tell you what! Stand up for Chuck!...."
Note: You are urged to see the "Joseph Biden" section of the document entitled THE CRUD AROUND BARACK OBAMA: My Rule--"Like Minds Get Together", which has more information about nonsense from Joseph Biden and which can be reached by using the link that exists at the end of this document.
Barbara Boxer (a Democrat and U.S. Senator related to California):
On Tuesday, June 16, 2009, Barbara Boxer was asking questions of Brigadier General Michael Walsh at a meeting of the Environment Public Works Committee of the U.S. Senate, and here is some text of their exchange:
Barbara Boxer: "Why has it been delayed?"
Brigadier General Michael Walsh : "Ah, Ma'am, at the, ah, LAPCR."
Barbara Boxer: "You know, do me a favor--Could you say 'Senator' instead of 'Ma'am'?"
Brigadier General Michael Walsh: "Yes."
Barbara Boxer: "It's just a thing. I've worked so hard to get that title. So I'd appreciate it. And thank you."
Brigadier General Michael Walsh: "Yes, Senator."
Christopher Buckley (a political satrist and novelist ): This man has written books, and he is the son of William F. Buckley, Jr., who was a "conservative" and was the host of Firing Line, which was a conversative talk show that was shown on PBS from 1966 to 1999.
Warren Buffett (a very rich man): This man is currently the Chief Operating Officer of a big company called Bershire Hathaway, which is considered a conglomerate holding company, which does a lot of business related to insurance.
Michael Capuano (a politician associated with the Democratic Party): The nature of the Democratic Party includes what I call "thugism." On February 23, 2011, U.S. Representative Michael Capuano (a Democrat related to Massachusetts) made this comment to union members: "...Today is a great day for all of us. But let's be serious. It's not about just one rally, not about a couple of nuts in the background who want to take it all away from you. I'm proud to be here with people who are willing to stand up. I'm proud to be here with people who understand that it's more than just sending e-mail to get you goin'. Every once and a while, you gotta get out on the streets and get a little bloody with necessary....." At the time, protests were going on in Wisconsin, because the governor of Wisconsin was trying to pass legislation to reduce the three-point-six-billion budget deficit to nothing, and Wisconsin State Senator fled Wisconsin so that they could slow down the government of Wisconsin (and to learn more about the event, you should see my document entitled Patriots of the U.S.A. and the Counter-Counter Revolution, which can be reached by using this link: Patriots).
Jimmy Carter (a former President of the United States of America):
At the Democratic National Convention in August 2008, Jimmy Carter made this statement: "...It already has set, ah, a wave of approbation and admiration in many countries around the world just knowing that this black boy--who grew up with just a loving mother and, ah, and crabgrass, and that was about all he had to start with--is now has a chance to become the nominee of the Democratic Party for President...." Jimmy Carter answered a question that wondered whether Barack Obama being nominated to be the U.S. President or elected to be the U.S. President would be positive for race issues in the country.
On Tuesday, September 15, 2009, Jimmy Carter appeared on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and showed more why he is a defective individual through what he says and does (his days as the U.S. President in the late 1970s were bad for the country, and, for example, his policies led to high unemployment and high inflation), and here is one statement of September 15, 2009, that shows how defective he is: "....I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man. I live in the South, and I've seen the South come a long way, and I've seen the rest of the country that shared the South's attitude toward minority groups at that time, particularly African-Americans. And that racism in the nation still exists. And I think it's, ah, bubbled up to the surface because of a belief among many white people--not just in the South but around the country--that African-Americans are not qualified to lead this great country. It's an abominable circumstance and grieves me and concerns me very deeply...." This statement was crap and is crap from a former President of the United States of America, since many persons in the country at this time understood Barack Obama is a Marxist, communist, and racist, and they understood that Barack Obama is bad for the country, as Jimmy Carter was.
On Wednesday, September 16, 2009, Jimmy Carter said: "...And I think people that are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama have been influenced by a belief that he should not be President because he happens to be African-American. It's a racist attitude...." And that is more crap from Jimmy Carter, who was continuing to do race baiting.
James Carville (a pundit): This man is a Democrat, who helped Bill Clinton around 1993 when Bill Clinton was running for president of the United States of America, and since 1993, he has done acting and has become well known as a very "liberal" commentator or "pundit" on political-themed talk shows.
James Carville talked to reporters in the morning of September 11, 2001, which was a time before the attacks by terrorists in airplanes would take place in the country, and he talked about U.S. President George W. Bush, and he said, "...I certainly hope he doesn't succeed." That means James Carville wanted George W. Bush to "fail."
Note: You should see my document entitled A Collection of Words--Just Words--That Show Dangerous People, which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document.
Hillary Diana Rodham Clinton (a Democrat): This woman, who was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, is the wife of William Clinton; and is a U.S. Senator related to the State of New York, beginning that work in 2000. Hillary Clinton, during her college years of the 1960s, spent time in Chicago, Illinois, which can be called a "communist" and "radical" stronghold in the country (Chicago is where Barack Obama spent time, as did William Ayers and Saul Alinsky).
It was on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, that Hillary Clinton was answering questions before a .... committee, and the topic was a few Office of Legal Counsel documents related to former U.S. President George W. Bush that had recently be released and other Office of Legal Counsel documents related to former U.S. President George W. Bush that might be released (see the entry in Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama related to this date--April 21, 2009 (and the notation the follows it)). Here is an exchange of dialogue with Hillary Clinton and.the questioner:
U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher: "Are you in favor of releasing the documents that Dick Cheney has been requesting be released?"
Hillary Clinton: "Well, it won't surprise you that, ah, I don't consider him a particularly reliable source of information."
U.S. Representative: "Ah, Madam, Madam Secretary, I asked you a specific question--...if Dick Cheney is asked for specific documents to be unclassified--we're not asking for your opinion of Dick Cheney--about those documents, you want to maintain your credibility with us, what is your position on the release of those documents?"
U.S. Representative: "Well, Congressman, I believe that we ought to get to the bottom of this entire matter. I think it's in the best interest of our country, and that is what the President believes, and that is why he has taken the action he did...."
William Clinton (a Democrat): This man was the president of the United States of America from 1993 to 2001, before which he had been, for example, the governor of the State of Arkansas.
Here is a nonsense statement that Bill Clinton had as an "Earth Day" message for Wednesday, April 22, 2009: "On this Earth Day, we cannot let the current global economic recession slow us in the race against climate change. Indeed, there is tremendous opportunity to solve both our environmental and our economic challenges through investment in clean jobs and projects that increase energy deficiency and lower utility bills and transportation bills...." [This short bit is nothing more than more idiot thought from Bill Clinton.]
In 1993, Bill Clinton said: "...With all of our efforts to strengthen the economy will fail. Let me say this again. I feel so strongly about this. All of our efforts to strengthen the economy will fail unless we also take this year, not next year, not five years from now, but this year bold steps to reform our health-care system...." [Such nonsense Bill Clinton stated and had a hard time to state.]
John Conyers (a Democrat and a U.S. Representative related to Michigan, particularly the 14th District):
John Conyers is married to Monica Conyers, who, for instance, was the head of the Detroit (Michigan) City Council in the first few months of 2009, and, in the first few months of 2009, Detroit had an employment rate of about 22.2 percent, had an adult illiteracy rate of about 47 percent, and had about $600 million debt related to the budget (the amount was about $300 million for the city proper and about $300 million for the school system), and John Conyers, for one, represents Detroit, and since the 1970s, since the mayor of Detroit was Coleman A. Young, Detroit has had nothing but a steady decline, and that decline can be blamed, for one, on the policies enacted by or and beliefs of such persons as Coleman A. Young, John Conyers, and Monica Conyers.
Note: It was on Friday, June 26, 2009, that Monica Conyers (of teh Detroit City Council) was in U.S. District Court and plead guilty to a bribergy conspiracy charge related to what was informally known as the "Synagro Sludge Contract Scandal," and it was on Monday, June 29, 2009, that Monica Conyers resigned from the Detroit City Council.
Richard M. Daley (the mayor of Chicago Illinois, who is a Democrat):
On Tuesday, November 10, 2000, in Chicago, Mayor Daley gave a press conference that was designed to talk about Arab-language programs that were being added to public schools in Chicago, and it was done five days after a man who was a follower of a radical sect of Islam had shot and killed or injured at number of persons at Fort Hood, Texas, and here are some of the words that he spoke: "...Every day in society, someone is being killed. Unfortunately, America loves guns--we love guns to a point that, dah, we see the devastation on a daily basis, and, ah, you don't blame a group, you don't blame a society, the immigrant community, because of actions of one group...." Note: It has been shown publicly that the man--Major Nidal Malik Hasan--who attacked people at Fort Hood is a follower of a radical sect of Islam, the members of which seek to wipe about the United States of America, and American's love of guns had nothing to do with the shooting incident at Fort Hood. I say that it is important for Americans to have guns, because it is always possible that, in the future, Americans--real Americans--will have to protect themselves from enemies outside of the United States of America and enemies who exist within the United States of America, such as Barack Obama and his communist/Marxist/socialist followers. (By the way, the lead Democrats of today would probably love to get rid of all the guns in the country so that people in the country could not fight back, and that is the way of communists, Marxists, and socialists.)
Tom Daschle (a former U.S. Senator and nearly the head of the Health and Human Services of the federal government under Barack Obama (he had problems of not paying income taxes): In essence, this man's thoughts are going to be the basis for the national-health-care system that Barack Obama is a trying to set up in the country--a system that will very likely be like that of England and will lead to rationing of health care for, at least, the elderly (the first foundations for the system exist in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which was made a law on Monday, February 17, 2009). His book entitled Critical: What We Can Do About the Health Care Crisis is influencing Barack Obama in the creation of a national health-care system in the country, and, for one, the book notes that elderly will probably be refused some health care and should simply accept their medical problems--and live with them till they die.
John Dingell (a Democrat): This man is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives related to the State of Michigan, getting the job in 1955 (through election) and is head of the Committee on Energy and Commerce.
Bernadine Dohrn (a communist): This woman is a professor of law at Northwestern University, which is in Chicago, Illinois; was a leader of the "Weather Underground" (which was a terrorist group from 1969-1980); was a member of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (a terrorist group of the 1960s); was involved with William Ayers in the Prairie Free Collective (a radical group of the late 1970s); and worked at a Chicago-based law firm now known as Sidley Austin from 1984 to 1988 (most recently the firm was formerly called Sidley Austin Brown & Wood LLP). (Incidentally, around 1988, Michelle Obama, who is the wife of Barack Obama, worked at Sidley Austin).
Anita Dunn (a lover of the late Mao Tse-Tung of China and the head of communications at the White House for Barack Obama):
On June 5, 2009, Anita Dunn made a speech to the graduating high-school class at the Washington National Cathedral, and here is some of the speech in text form: "...An then the third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers--Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa, not often coupled with each other. In 1947, when Mao Tse-Tung was being challenged within his own party, like his plan to basically take China over. The National Chinese held the cities, and it had the army, it had the air force, it had everything on their side. And people said how could you win, how could you do this, how could you do this against all the odds against you? And Mao s. Tung said, 'You fight your war, and I'll fight mine.' And think about that for a second...." [Note: Mao killed millions of people, such as through starvation, in China.]
Louis Farrakhan (an activist and radical): This man is the leader of the Nation of Islam, which is sort of a religious group founded in Detroit in the 1930s and which is now based in Chicago, Illinois.
Consider disfunctional thought that he presented to people who listened to him during the "Million Man March" of October 16, 1995: "...In the background is the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorial--each one of these monuments is nineteen-feet high. Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president, Thomas Jefferson, the third president, and Sixteen and Three make nineteen again. What is so deep about this number nineteen? Why are we standing on the Capitol steps today? That number nineteen! When you have a nine, you have a woman that is pregnant, and when you have a one standing by the nine, it means that there is something secret that has to be unfolded. Abraham Lincoln's statue--nineteen-feet high, nineteen-feet wide! Then, Jefferson's--nineteen-feet high. Sixteen...and the third president--nineteen! Standing on the steps of the Capitol. In the light of the sun! Offering light to a people who are dead!...." [You have just read the words of a man with an ill mind. Be wary! Be worried! Louis Farrakhan is closely associated with Barack Obama. You are urged to see the "Case Number Three" section of my document entitled The Evil and Sick Mind of Barack Obama: A Look at His Insidious and Treacherous Ways (Attacking Real Scientists, the U.S. Military, and More, which can be reached by using this link: Evil.]
Barney Frank (a Democrat): This man is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives related to Massachusetts, having been a member since 1981 and is now the chairman of the Committee of Financial Services of the U.S. House of Representatives, a position that he has held since 2007.
Wednesday, March 18, 2008 (it is a committee hearing and he is talking with Edward Liddy, who is the CEO of AIG (Edward Liddy was appointed to the position by the federal government recently)): "...I'm now asking you to send us the names of those who received bonuses who have not given them back. Can you do that?" (Edward Liddy made a statement that noted he would if he was assured the names would remain confidential.) "Well, I won't give you that assurance, sir, until--if that's the condition, I, it would be my intention to ask this committee to subpoena them. But, I, I, I do ask that you submit those names without restriction, and if you feel unable to do that, then I will ask the committee to subpoena them...." [On this day, news organizations, such as ABC Radio News, had already noted that some employees of AIG already had death threats. Notice how Barney Frank has no care for the safety of the employees. For more information about the AIG topic related to bonuses, you should see the Nonsense Quotations and Statements of Barack Obama (particularly for entries from Monday, March 16, 2009, through Wednesday, March 18, 2009), which can be reached through this link: Quotes.]
The next two quotes are from different periods of time, and you should analyze them together to look for inconsistencies of thought:
On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Barney Frank made this comment on June 27, 2005: "...What those who argue that housing prices are now at the point of a bubble seem to me to be missing a very important point. Unlike previous examples we have had where substantial extensive inflation of prices later caused some problems, we are talking here about an entity--homeownership, homes--where there is not the degree of leverage we have seen elsewhere. This is not the dot-com situation--we had problems with people having invested in business plans for which there were no reality--the people building fiber-optic cable for which there was no need. Homes that are occupied may see an ebb and flow in the price at a certain percentage level, but you're not going to see the collapse that you see when people talk about a bubble and so those of us on our committee in particular who continue to push for homeownership...."
On Monday, April 20, 2009, Barney Frank was on Tavis Smiley, which was a weeknight television show on PBS, and stated: "...One of the causes of the terrible crises we had, ah, over the last two years, which is given us today's problem, hum, it came from people being pushed into buying houses--taking out loans that they couldn't afford. Part of that was a conservative view that rental housing was a bad thing. I have been trying with a lot of others to try and continue programs to build decent rental housing for people. What we had were people in power who didn't like that, they said--No, no, we'll help them to become homeowners. But people were pushing homeownership that shouldn't have been there. So what I did today because we have today in Barack Obama a president who understands this that if, if you are low income in America, if you're poor, you're probably not going to be able to afford a home...."
In 2005, Barney Frank said that he was pushing homeownership, and, in 2009, Barney Frank said that he was pushing the building of rental housing, and so I have--with the help of at least Mark R. Levin (of The Mark Levin Show) who presented both quotations to listeners on April 24, 2009, presented lies and nonsense logic from Barney Frank, and, also, Barney Frank, in 2009, is trying to blame "conservatives" in government for pushing homeownership, and if you look at both pieces of text, you should see more nonsense. (See my document entitled THOUGHTS AND PIECES OF LOGIC for the individual woman and the individual man, the link to which is available at the end of this document to see more about the economic failure of 2008, which has ties to the Democratic Party (such as Barney Frank and former U.S. President Bill Clinton), Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and more.)
On Friday, June 4, 2010, Barney Frank really showed that he is working to persuade people that government has to get bigger and stronger and have more control of the people--the wish of the communist--through this statement that he made publicly: "...We're not satisfied with everything we've done. The way to cure that is to give us more authority and more ability...."
Timothy Geithner (a Democrat): This man, who is a tax cheat, is the head of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (which has the Internal Revenue Serivice).
This statement he made on Meet the Press on Sunday, March 29, 2009: "...But we're gonna emerge stronger from this. When we get through this, people are going to care less about what they make, more about what they do, what they achieve with what they make, and that will help make this country stronger...." [This statement is nonsense and ignorance]
Let me go on to another topic. It was on Wednesday, May 6, 2009, that Timothy Geithner appeared on Charlie Rose, a PBS weeknight show hosted by Charlie Rose, and Timothy Geither made a revealing statement, which seemed to unexpectedly escape him (remember, the main topic is the recession of 2008-2009):
Timothy Geithner: "Well, well, we need to get through this crisis. It is very important we get through this crisis and be definitively through it, but we're hoping to legislate this year."
Charlie Rose: "Whatever you can do in terms of regulation and legislation will take place during the next three years?"
Timothy Geithner: "Yes. Within that period of time, within that period of time! But again these things are about preventing the next boom...."
In the exchange that I have presented, the really telling piece of information comes with "...preventing the next boom." During the history of the United States of America, there have been low periods (recessions or the big depression of the 1930s or so) and there have been high periods, such as the 1980s, and that is because the economy is not stagnant, and it can never be stagnant because millions and millions of people make decisions to do things or not to do things and because events, such as wars, happen around the world. Timothy Geithner let it slip that Barack Obama does not want a boom--though a boom is good for everyone because things get created. To force no boom to take place is unnatural to the laws of economics and the rules of nature (for example, low periods can happen because bad weather can affect the ability to grow crops, which affects the cost of crops). Lives are improved in boom times and when the economy grows, and it looks as if Timothy Geithner and Barack Obama do not want improved lives, and that is bad for you.
Here is a statement that he made on Sunday, May 17, 2009: "...We face again this deep recession, damaged financial system, and our immediate imperative still is to get growth back on track. That requires us to do things that are expensive, that cost money, in the short term will raise deficits. The same time we do that, we have to commit to Americans, to investors around the world that we're gonna to be able get back to living within our means, when the crisis's past and when the recovery's established. We're gonna have to get back to living within our means, and that's going to require demonstrating to people willing to stop doing as we been doing, give up things that we don't want to give up, and that'll be a challenge...." [This material was an answer to a question presented by Jon Meacham of Newsweek, in which Jon Meacham wondered what Timothy Geithner thought about the debt being left to Timothy Geithner's two children because of Barack Obama's policies, and it was noted that the additional deficit for the regular federal government budget would be $11 trillion over the nex ten years.]
Robert Gibbs (the main White House spokesperson for Barack Obama):
During the week of Monday, May 25, 2009, the big news was Barack Obama's proposing that Sonia Sotomoyer become a new justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, and it was clear that Sonia Sotomayor had made racist comment in public (see the "Sonia Sotomayor" section), and one question that Robert Gibbs answered on the subject on Wednesday, May 27, 2009, was this comment: "... Ah, ah, I think it is probably important for anybody involved in this debate to be exceeding careful, ah, with the way in which, ah, they've decided to describe, ah, different aspects of this, ah, impending conformation...." [This statement was a threat statement, and the Barack Obama administration likes to intimidate people, as is shown in my document entitled Frank Beckmann of WJR-AM Interviews Tom Lauria, an Attorney in Chrysler Mess.]
Newt Gingrich (who calls himself a "Republican"):
On January 13, 2009, Newt Gingrich made this comment: "...I, I just think there's nothing unhealthy about the Republican Party having a serious discussion. We're at the end of the George W. Bush era, we are at the end of the Reagan era. We're at the point in time where we're about to start redefining--as a number of people started talking about--that we're starting to redefine the nature of the Republican Party in response to what the country needs...." [This comment is nonsense, since the basis of the Republican Party is "conservatism," and the basic rules of "conservatism," such as the rule of freedom for the individual from tyrannical rules and tyrannical politicians, do not change over time.]
On March 8, 2009, Newt Gingrich was on Meet the Press, the weekly series of NBC-TV, and here is some of the dialogue from the show:.Newt Gingrich: "You gotta want the President to succeed. You'd, irrational if you didn't want the new President to succeed, because if he doesn't succeed, the country doesn't succeed. So...that's...."There is a logic problem with Newt Gingrich's statements. A President has policies, and the policies are tied to the President. If the policies are bad for the country, and people want the policies to be stopped, then a person can say that the person wants the policies to fail--and, in turn--the President to fail, which is to fail to make the bad policies do into effect. And Barack Obama has very, very bad policies
David Gregory (the host): "Do you think Republicans are discordant on point--on whether they want him [Barack Obama] to fail?"
Newt Gingrich: "I, I don't think anyone should want the President of the United States to fail. I, I want some of his policies to be stopped, but I don't want the President of the United States to fail...."
Newt Gingrich appeared on Face the Nation (which is a weekly series on CBS-TV) on Sunday, June 7, 2009, and the host was Harry Smith, and here is some dialogue from the show:Harry Smith: "...Well, you also have a voice of idealogical purity out there that unless people kowtow to..."In the previous set of dialogue, you can see that Newt Gingrich promotes Colin Powell, who calls himself a Republican but who is really a Democrat, which can been seen through the material that is presented in the section about Colin Powell in this document, and, in fact, Collin Powell, who supported and supports Barack Obama is a hard-left Democrat, and that is bad for you, if he is associated with the Republican Party.
Newt Gingrich: "Shrug them off."
Harry Smith: "Shrug them off."
Newt Gingrich: "Reagan shrugged them off. Reagan...was frequently attacked, but people knew in general he was a conservative--people accepted he was a conservative. Ah, and he built a very broad coalition."
Harry Smith: "So, your advice to other Republicans is 'Shrug off Rush Limbaugh'?"
Newt Gingrich: "My, my advice is that Colin Powell is a great American--I'm proud that he's a Republican. And Dick Cheney is a great American--I'm proud he's Republican. I'm proud both of them are Republican...."
Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi appeared in a Public Service Announcement together in 2008, and the topic of "green" stuff and global-warming nonsense, and here is the text:Nancy Pelosi: "Hi, I'm Nancy Pelosi, lifelong Democrat and Speaker of the House."You should see Newt Gingrich is like a Democrat or worse than a Democrat, as is Colin Powell, and you should discount Newt Gingrich.
Newt Gingrich: "And I'm Newt Gingrich, lifelong Republican, and I used to be Speaker."
Nancy Pelosi: "We don't always see eye to eye, do we, Newt?"
Newt Gingrich: "No, but we do agree our country must take action to address climate change."
Nancy Pelosi: "We need cleaner forms of energy, and we need them fast!"
Newt Gingrich: "If enough of us demand action from our leaders, we can spark the innovation we need."
Nancy Pelosi: "Go to wecansolveit.org. Together, we can do this."

Al Gore (a Democrat and former Vice President of the United States of America):
"...It has taken too much time to make that connection. And this year, 2009, is Gettysburg for the global environment...it's the moment in time when we have the opportunity to turn the corner...." [This nonsense statement from Al Gore, who had been instrumental in the making of the film called An Inconvenient Truth, was delivered on April 22, 2009.]
Lindsey Graham (a United States Senator related to South Carolina and, supposedly, a Republican):
Around late spring 2010 and early summer 2010, Elena Kagan was being considered a person to become a member of the U.S Supreme Court, and in mid-July 2010, Elena Kagan was going through the confirmation process in the U.S. Senate, and Lindsey Graham was a part of the process, and Lindsey Graham showed how ignorant or defective he is. For example, on July 20, 2010, Lindsey Graham made these comments: "...I'm gonna vote for her because I believe the last election had consequences, and this President chose someone who is qualified, who has the experience and knowledge to serve on this court, who's in the mainstream of liberal philosophy and understands the difference between being a liberal judge and a politician. At the end of the day, after the hearing, it was not a hard decision for m, for me to make. I thought she did a very good job and she will serve this nation honorably. And it would not have been someone I would, I would have chosen, but the person who did choose--President Obama--I think chose wisely...." and "...I understood we lost. President Obama won. And I've got a lot of opportunity to disagree with him. But The Constitution in my view puts a requirement on me as a Senator to not replace my judgment for his...." People who become U.S. Senators or U.S. Presidents pledge to protect and defend The U.S. Constitution, which means, for one, they pledge to follow the rules of The U.S. Constitution. During Elena Kagan's confirmation process related to the U.S. Supreme Court, Elena Kagan showed she does not uphold the ways of The U.S. Constitution, such as by showing her inability to answer a question about whether or not the federal government has the power to tell people what they can and cannot eat (and you are urged to see my document entitled Justice for All?: The Rules are Changing Under Barack Obama for information on this subject, and you can reach the document by using this link: Justice). So it is the duty of Lindsey Graham to vote against anyone who it seems would not uphold the ways of The U.S. Constitution. Lindsey Graham noted that Elena Kagan is not a person that he would have nominated, but Lindsey Graham feels that Barack Obama "chose wisely." However, it must be remembered Barack Obama has showed himself to be a man who supports socialism, communism, the ways of Sharia, et cetera, all of which go against the ways of The U.S. Constitution, and Barack Obama has showed that he feels The U.S. Constitution is "flawed." Given that information, though, Lindsey Graham is not going to challenge Barack Obama's decision and choice for the U.S. Supreme Court, and that shows what Lindsey Graham is.
Jennifer Granholm (a Democrat):
This woman is the governor for the State of Michigan (January 2003 to the present), which, in around 2008, was in what could be called a severe recession or even a depression; was part of an economic summit held by Barack Obama in Chicago, Illinois, around November 7, 2008; and was a woman who was being considered right before the election, for example, as a possible ambassodor for the country or as a federal judge, who would be appointed by Barack Obama sometime (but it did not happen). Jennifer "Blown Away" Granholm will forever be known for this statement, which was made on January 25, 2006: "In five years, you're going to be blown away by the strength and diversity of Michigan's transformed economy." Around April 2009, the unemployed rate in Michigan was about 12 percent, which was about double what it had been in January 2006 (in Detroit, the unemployment rate was about 22 percent in April 2009).
See: John Conyers (for statistics about Detroit)
Eric Holder, Jr. (a Democrat and the Attorney General for the country (as appointed by Barack Obama):
The next two paragraphs were his choice to say on Wednesday, February 18, 2009:
"...Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we--I believe--continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards...."
"...We, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about things racial, during work hours, such as this, or shortly thereafter, we socialize with one another fairly well irrespective of race. Outside the work place, the situation is even more bleak, in that there is almost no significant interaction between us. On Saturdays and Sundays, America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost fifty-years ago...."
[He promotes garbage--racial garbage. And the country is not as it was fifty-years ago, so he lied. And you are urged to see the "Eric Holder, Jr." section my document entitled THE CRUD AROUND BARACK OBAMA: My Rule--"Like Minds Get Together", a link to which exists at the end of this document.]
Reverend Jesse Jackson (a radical): This man is Baptist minister and civil rights activist, and he founded a group called the "Rainbow Coalition" in 1989, which became known through merger as Rainbow/PUSH in 1996.
I say that since the 1960s, Jesse Jackson has been a crap of a man, and there are numerous examples to show this, but, here, I have one incident that must be shown and shown to children. Around the week of Monday, October 12, 2009, it was public knowledge that Rush Limbaugh (the host of the nationally syndicated radio show entitled The Rush Limbaugh Program and a well-known "conservative") was a part of a group that was working to buy a National Football League team, and, around this time, a number of people in the country were spreading rumors and false information about what Rush Limbaugh, who, during the week, denounced the rumors and false information. On Tuesday, October 13, 2009, Jesse Jackson helped spread the false information by making a statement on a television station in Chicago, Illinois, and he said: "...I stand with the players because he [Rush Limbaugh] has been so insulting and so incendiary in his comments. The idea that James Earl Ray would kill Dr. King [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.] to get an award, ah, cuts really deep. Ah, the, the comments that slavery was a bad system, but it had some merits--at least the streets were safe. The statement he made by McNabb that got him run off ESPN. So, he, he's literally made a living stoking the fires of fear, making money. Now he wants to use that money to have the power over the lives of players black and white...." On Wednesday, October 14, 2009, Rush Limbaugh noted during his radio program that Jesse Jackson "had hired a PR firm, did television interviews, claiming that King had died in his arms. It was a blatant lie, according to Ralph David Abernathy, who said that the Reverend Jackson wasn't even there at the time of the assassination, that he did show up in time to take some of Dr. King's blood and smear on his own shirt to promote the lie that he had held Dr. King in his arms." And, on October 14, 2009, Rush Limbaugh noted that it was a story Time in 1987 that told the story and noted that his Web site had a link to the story.
Between at least Tuesday, February 15, 2011, and Friday, February 18, 2011, teachers and others were protesting in Madison, Wisconsin. The state had a three-point-six-billion-dollar deficit that the governor of Wisconsin--Scott Walker--and other politicians were working to get rid of, because state law required that the state have a balanced budget. Instead of firing teachers, Scott Walker had proposed a bill that would cut benefits--benefits that were really generous and beyond that which many people in the private sector had--for at least teachers in the state, making teachers now help pay at least some of their retirement and medical care. At the time, the average pay for teachers in Wisconsin was about $56,000, which did not include the benefits, and the benefits were worth many thousands of dollars, and some teachers were actually getting--for about nine months of work a year--well over $100,000 in pay and benefits. The protesters were not people who were getting pennies a day to work, as people might in a Third World country, but some people gave the impression that the teachers were highly suppressed, like the people of Egypt who had recently been protesting against their government and who had been able to get the president of the country--Hosni Mubarak--to give up his job, after being a dictator for thirty years. On Friday, February 18, 2011, Reverend Jesse Jackson really showed off his communist or "enslavist" mentality, and he tried to make it seem he was in Madison, Wisconsin, to support suppressed "workers," and in an interview with Bill Osmulski (of the MacIver News Service), Reverend Jesse Jackson said, while equating the protesting in Madison with the protesting in Egypt: "...Here's it's the same way. And I think that spirit of fighting back to close the north-south gap between...the surplus culture and the suffering culture...." Reverend Jesse Jackson tried to suggest and push the idea that the teachers in Wisconsin were part of the "suffering culture" of the U.S., and his work was clearly guided by Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto, which is a book of the 1800s that shows, for one, how "enslavists" could work to become rulers--displace the current political people--and be like dictators and enslave masses of people, and one principle for achieving the goal was to make "workers" rebel against their bosses and the rich of the society, and, of course, the "workers" would be guided by the "enslavists," who would ultimately end up becoming the rulers of the masses when the society broke down. The teachers, many of whom had called in sick from work to protest, were most certainly not part of any "suffering culture," and protesters showed off their leach-like mentality and disregard for others, given other people in the state--who pay the salaries of teachers--were having economic difficulties because of, for one, Barack Obama's bad economic policies, which were causing people to lose jobs and even, in some cases, homes (Barack Obama's policies were following up on those created by Democrats that had already been instrumental in creating the recession that had started in 2008 or so and was still going on). Yes, Reverend Jesse Jackson, who has never really had a regular job, acted like a good little communist on Friday, February 18, 2011. (Note: To learn more about the bill, you should see the document entitled Patriots of the U.S.A. and the Counter-Counter Revolution, which can be reached by using this link: Patriots.)
Ted Kennedy (a Democrat): This man was a U.S. Senator related to the State of Massachusetts, getting the job (through election) in 1962 and leaving upon his death on August 25, 2009 (and you should see T.H.A.T. #65 to see how this man was a traitor to the United States of America, and the document can be reached by using this link: T.H.A.T. #65).
John Kerry (a Democrat): This man is a U.S. Senator related to the State of Massachusetts and is the chairman of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
Here is a statement that he made on the week of Monday, February 9, 2009): "...targetted. If you put a tax cut into the hands of either a business or an individual today, there is no guarantee, they're going to invest their money, there's no guarantee they're going to invest their money in the United States. They're free to go invest anywhere that they want, if they choose to invest. The fact is none of those people are guaranteed to invest that money in any of the new projects that we are...."
Larry King (a "liberal" television talk-show host on cable, Larry King Live):
Here is a statement made on his television show on Thursday, April 2, 2009: "...Somebody's got to think for the masses...." [He was referring to politicans having to do for the masses. Actually, notice Larry King's feelings for the individual--he shows he believes the average person or the individual is stupid and someone like Barack Obama has to do the thinking for the regular person or the individual. The statement shows Larry King is a garbage of a man.]
David Letterman (a talk-show host): This man is the host a a late-night talk show on the CBS-TV network that is entitled Late Night with David Letterman, which has existed on the network since 1993. [See the document entitled Never Forget These Media "Darlings" ? --A Guide for the Individual in the United States of America, which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document.
Carl Levin (a Democrat): This man is a U.S. Senator related to the State of Michigan, getting the job in 1979 (through election) and is the chairman of the Committee on Armed Services.
Sander Levin (a Democrat): This man, whose brother is Carl Levin, is a U.S. Congressman related to Michigan, and he is a big proponent of "global warming" or "climate change" created by humans.
John McCain (U.S. Senator related to Arizona): This man called himself a "Republican" in, for instance, 2008 when the U.S. presidential campaign was underway--he ran for the President of the United States of America and became the Republican candidate--and he failed to substantially attack Barack Obama on issues during the campaign season, especially in televised debates, and I had the feeling John McCain was not a real Republican (thinking him as a "plant," such as a Democrat or worse), and it is unknown what he will do (he is for "open borders," which is a topic related to immigration, and "open borders" is not good).
On Tuesday, August 25, 2009, John McCain showed how naive he is about Barack Obama, and, officially, John McCain showed his weakness through an answer that he gave a woman during a town-hall meeting in Sun City, Arizona, and here is what the woman said and what Jon McCain said:Woman: "It's very nice of you to be here with us. I would like to know how the President is getting by with all of this money--ah, it's against The Constitution--doesn't he know that we still live in, under a constitution?" (There was applause from others in the audience.)John McCain is dangerous to the country, since he has not come to understand how dangerous and deadly Barack Obama is, and it is good John McCain did not become a U.S. President, and John McCain should see such documents of mine as Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama, A Collection of Words--Just Words--That Show Dangerous People, A Little History of Barack Obama Events: A Show of Deconstruction, Madness in a President and Other Matters of a Defective Mind, and National Health Care and Mass Failure: The Reasons it is a Dead Issue to see what Barack Obama is--a man who dislikes the United States of America.
John McCain: "Sure. I'm sure that he does. I'm sure." (The audience reacted negatively.) "No, no! I'm serious. I'm sure that he does, and I'm sure that he respects The Constitution of the United States." (The audience reacted negatively again.) "No, no, no. I, I, I really do. I, I'm absolutely convinced of it. I just believe, my friends, that there is a fundamental difference in philosophy and about the role of government. That's why we have competition for public office and competition amongst parties and competition about, about different ideas and visions for the future of America. I am convinced the President is absolutely sincere in his beliefs." (The audience once again reacted negatively to what John McCain was putting forth.) "Wait! Wait a minute! He is sincere in his beliefs. We just, we just happen to disagree, and he is the President of the United States, and let's be respectful...."
You must remember this thought, which I clear report is commentary mixed with fact. People who become kidnapped victims or or hostages for a long period of time can become changed--in the mind--and can become aligned with the captors, and that is a fact. During the Vietnam War, John McCain was a prisoner of war in Vietnam for many months, and he was hurt and injured by his captors, who were communists and communist soldiers. I would not doubt if John McCain sort of has sympathies for socialist types because the hurt that he endured during the Vietnam War, and he may even blame the United States of America for having put him in hard times during the Vietnam War.
On Sunday, October 25, 2009, John McCain was on Face the Nation, which is a weekly political talk show on CBS, and, at one point, the host--Bob Schieffer--asked this question: "Do you agree that we are endangering our troops and that this is dithering?" The question sort of focused on statements that had been made on October 21, 2009, by former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney at the 20th Anniversary of the Center for Security Policy, in which he voiced big complaints about Barack Obama's policies related to military matters, and here was the answer that John McCain gave, "Ah, I'd, I'd don't use, I wouldn't use that language. That fact is, as I said before, we already have men and women who are in danger there now. The sooner we implement this strategy, the more we will be able to ensure their safety, the best, ah, way for them to pursue...." Bob Schieffer talked over John McCain's final words, by asking, "But what did you think of the way that Vice President [Dick Cheney] put it?" And John McCain said, "Well, I understand, dah, the Vice President. I have great respect, dah, for him. But I think we ought to look forward, and that is, to support the President, I intend to--when he makes the decision--which I believe he will, to implement McChrystal's strategy...." This shows another instance in which John McCain showed his wishy-washy attitude and soft attitude toward Barack Obama.
Andrea Mitchell (a television reporter): This woman is a reporter for NBC-TV and MSNBC and is married to Alan Greenspan, the most recent former head of the Federal Reserve (he helded the position from August 1987 to January 2006).
By the way, Andrea Mitchell got to report for MSNBC at time that Barack Obama and Joe Biden went to a restaurant and bought a ten-ounce hamburger and potato puffs, and that happened on Tuesday, May 5, 2009, and it was such an important story--at least as felt by Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC. (Note: I guess Andrea Mitchell is a "meat-and-potatoes" gal.)
John Murtha (a Democrat): This man is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives realted to the State of Pennsylvania, having started that job in 1974 (getting the job through election), and he is the chairman of the House Appropriations Defense subcommittee.
Janet Napolitano (who heads the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, starting the job on January 21, 2009):
On April 7, 2009, the U.S. Department of Security sent out a memo of sorts to police agencies around the country, and here is one statement that she made a little over a week later about material, such as that which notes that police should be worried about Veterans and "conservatives.": "..Department of Homeland Security infringe on anyone's constitutional or civil rights. I think everybody needs to take a deep breathe. There was, ah, a lot of Washington spin going on yesterday about this report, but all it was saying is--Look, there's a constant and a constantly changing threat environment in the United States. Our job is to protect against terrorism, whether it comes from abroad or internally...."
On December 25, 2009, a man tried to destroy an airplane flying in the air above the Detroit area (he had an explosive material in his underpants), and on December 27, 2009, Janet Napolitano made statements about the event on television, such as: "...One thing I'd like to point out is that the system worked. Everybody played an important role here...the passengers and crew of the flight, ah, took appropriate...." The system did not work because the man was easily able to get the explosive material on the airplane, but she was trying to downplay the lax security and avoid talking about the lax security (for some reason). On December 28, 2009, and December 29, 2009, Barack Obama, while on vacation in Hawaii, made comments, and on December 29, 2009, one statement that he made was: "...Moreover, as Secretary Napolitano has said, once the suspect attempted to take down Flight 253--after his attempt--it's clear that passengers and crew, our Homeland Security systems, and our aviation security took all appropriate actions...." Barack Obama's statement was designed to give cover to Janet Napolitano for having made her nonsense statement and to make it appear to people that her comment was not nonsense.
Michelle Obama (the wife of Barack Obama):
On Saturday, May 16, 2009, Michelle Obama spoke before graduating students of the University of California--Merced, and here are two pieces of her speech: "...We need your ideas, graduates. We need your resourcefulness. We need your inventiveness. And as the students who helped build this school, I ask you make your legacy a lasting one. Dream big. Think broadly about your life and please make giving back to your community a part of that vision...." [Michelle Obama is a type of person who wants to take, take, take, take from you, as is shown through her using "we need" and "we need" and "we need."] "...Remember that you are blessed, remember that in exchange for those blessings, you must give something back. You must reach back and pull someone up. You must bend down and let someone else stand on your shoulders so that they can see a brighter future...." [Like Barack Obama, Michelle Obama is full of crap! What is her nonsense about letting "someone else stand on your shoulders"? Who is it that gave the "blessings" to you as she sees it? You should see my document entitled A Collection of Words--Just Words--That Show Dangerous People.]
On Wednesday, June 3, 2009, Michelle Obama made this statement in relation to Sonia Sotomayor, who, at the time, was being pushed by Barack Obama to be a new justice for the U.S. Supreme Court: "...I read the story of Judge Sotomayor. She went to Princeton, and, in this story, she said that, when she arrived at Princeton as a freshman--and this was nine years before I would even think about going--she said, when she stepped on that campus, she said--and this is a quote--she said, 'She felt like a visitor landing in an alien country.' Depsite all her success at Princeton and then she went on to Yale Law School, where she was at the top of her class in both schools, and despite all of her professional accomplishments, Judge Sotomayor* says she still looks over her shoulder and wonders if she measures up, and when I read her story, I understood exactly how she feels...." [(* = Michelle Obama actually said: "Sodomyar."]
On October 2, 2009, Michelle Obama was in Copenhagen, Denmark, with Oprah Winfrey, and was pitching to the International Olympic Committee the idea of having an Olympics in Chicago, Illinois, and here is some of the nonsense that she spoke: "....In my dad's early thirties, he was diagnosis with multiple sclerosis, and as he got sicker, it became harder for him to walk, let alone play his favorite sports. My dad was my hero. And when I think of what these games can mean to people all over the world, I think about people like my dad--people who face seemingly insurmountable challenges but never let go. They work a little harder, but they never give up...." (I urge you to see the entry for "Friday, October 2, 2009", in my document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama, which shows more nonsense of the Obamas and how the Obamas think.)
Nancy Pelosi (a Democrat): This woman is a U.S. Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives related to the State of California, and she is a majority leader of the U.S. House of Reprsentatives, a job that she was chosen for by Democrats in the "House" in November 2006, and, by the way, she represents the eighth district of California, which happens to cover much of San Francisco, California.
On Wednesday, April 15, 2009, Nancy Pelosi made this statement about the "tea parties" that were taking place around the country on this day (and there were at least 700 tea parties scheduled) "...What they want is a continuation of the failed economic policies of, ah, President George Bush. This inititive is funded by the high-end--we call it astroturf--it's not really a grassroots movement, it's astroturf by some of the wealthiest people of America to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich, ah, instead for the great middle class...." [Nancy Pelosi is a big liar and a defective person. Regular citizens--individuals of all races--organized and took part in these events all over the country--from Atlanta, Georgia, where at least 20,000 persons took part, to South Lyon, Michigan. These events were not pushed on by rich people, these events were pushed on by individuals who, for one, see Barack Obama as a dangerous man with radical political beliefs.]
On Thursday, May 7, 2009, a few media outlets, such as Human Events and ABC News, noted that Nancy Pelosi knew about water boarding events related to the U.S. President George W. Bush, but, on April 23, 2009, she had said: "...And that or any other briefing, and that was the very briefing that ah, that I, that I, ah, ah, that I was briefed on in that regard. We were not--I repeat--we were not told that water boarding or any of these other enhanced-interrogation methods were used, but they did tell us is that they had some, hum, ah, legislative council--the Office of Legislative Counsel--ah, opinion, ah, that they could be used, but not that they would, and they further, furthered the point was that if and when they would be used, ah, they would brief Congress at that time...." and "...My colleague, the chairman of the committee, has said, 'Well, if they say that it's legal, you have to know that they're going to use it.' Well, his experience is that he was a member of the CIA, later went on to head the CIA, and maybe his experience is that, that if they tell you one thing, they may mean something else. My experience was they did not tell us they were using that flat out, and any, any contention to the contrary is simply not true...." This material is related to Barack Obama's wish in early 2009 to subject lawyers of the U.S. President George W. Bush administration who were involved in presenting legal advice about torture to trials in court or disciplinary actions in state bar associations, and I add that stories, such as in the Los Angeles Times (such as on May 8, 2009), note that it was on September 4, 2002, that Nancy Pelosi and other government officials received briefings from the CIA on the subject of water boarding and more.
Around the week of Monday, August 3, 2009, the big-name Democrats in the country, such as Barack Obama, were attacking the Americans who were taking part in "town hall" meetings set up by U.S. Congressmen to explain the health-care legislation that Barack Obama wished to pass, and the people--protesters--who were being attacked were being described as members of "mobs" and being described as people being directed by health-insurance companies to do what they were doing, which was not true, and Nancy Pelosi said, on Tuesday, August 4, 2009, that some of these people were "carrying swasikas," and she implied the people were Nazis.
Charlie Rose is a late-night weekday television talk show on PBS, and it is hosted by Charlie Rose, and on Monday, October 4, 2009, Nancy Pelosi appeared on the program, and here is a portion of what she said in answer to "Does a value-added tax have any appeal to you?" which had been asked by Charlie Rose: "...in the scheme of things, I think it's fair to look at a value-added tax." A "value-added tax," which, in this case, would be a national sales tax, would be a very bad tax for everyone in this country, especially the poor person or the low-income person, since the idea of a "value-added tax" is that a tax is imposed on every step of the production and distribution of each product made in the country, and if such a tax system were to be set up, the cost of every product would go up and the paper work related to every product would be increased, and, of course, in the end, it would be the consumer who would pay the tax by buying a particular product, and that would make every person poorer, since more money would have to be used to buy every product.
On Thursday, October 29, 2009, Nancy Pelosi held a news conference in which she introduced to the public and press here health-care legislation (seemingly a replacement for the previous released HR 3200), and it was a piece of legislation that was covered in 1,990 pages, and she made several statements, such as: "...It's with great pride and with great humility that we come before you to follow in the footsteps of those who gave our country Social Security, and then Medicare, and now universal-quality affordable health care for all Americans. We are brought to this historic moment for our nation and our families...." and "...the bill is fiscal sound, will not add one dime to the deficit as it expands coverage, implements key insurance reforms, and promotes prevention and wellness across the health system. The bill will expand coverage, including a public option to boost choice and competition in the health insurance reform...." [Social Security and Medicare are, in essence, broke, and they are unfunded liabilities of trillions and trillions of dollars. There is already health-insurance competition in the country, since each state has more than one health-care-insurance company offering coverage, and, really, more competition would be created by letting a company in any state sell insurance in any other state (which is not allowed today). By adding a government-related health-care-insurance entity to the marketplace does not really increase competition, since it only adds one entity, and it is an entity that can undercut all others, since it does not need to make a profit and it can--at first--set rates so low that other health-insurance providers will go out of business by not being able to offer such low rates--private entities will some time in the near future go out of business, and, at some point, there will only by one provider of health-care insurance--the federal government, and that will be a monopoly, and that is bad. Nancy Pelosi is as big a liar as Barack Obama is, since, for one, this bill if passed at the very least will cost over 800-billion dollars over ten years, and no government program ever costs less than what was first estimate.]

John Podesta (a Democrat): This man, who grew up in Chicago, Illinois, is the president of a liberal-type "think tank" called the "Center for American Progress," which was founded in 2003, and is a visiting professor of law at the Georgetown University Law Center, and he was a co-chairman of the Barack Obama transition-to-president team (the other co-chairman is Valerie Jarrett). In addition, this man was the "Chief of Staff" for President Bill Clinton from 1998 to 2000 (the Chief of Staff is the person through which people have to go to get to be with or talk with the president of the United States of America, and it is often said that the person is in charge of the "West Wing" of the "White House" (of Washington, D.C), which is where the president works).
Colin Powell (a former U.S. General): This man, who has called himself a "Republican," is really a liberal or worse, and evidence of that is his support for Barack Obama, such as during the presidental campaign of 2008, and on Monday, May 4, 2009, Colin Powell made a number of statements that showed his foolishness and his liberalism, such as "...Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less." Colin Powell is a man whose thoughts should be forgotten and is a man who should be forgotten, especially since he is trying to set the policies of the Republican Party and attach to the Republican Party liberal ideas or Democratic Party themes or give the Republican Party ideas that are worse the simple Democrat Party liberalism.
It must be remembered by everyone that Colin Powell said on Sunday, May 24, 2009, when appearing on Face the Nation (which is a weekly series on CBS-TV), that he voted for--to be President of the United States-- such persons as John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Bill Clinton, and, of course, Barack Obama, and all the those persons were or are "Democratics," and that means Colin Powell can be considered at least a "Democrat," if not worse, such as a communist (who has been quiet about what he is and what he believes) or a socialist (who has been quiet about what he is and what he believes), and that means Colin Powell cannot be a "conservative," and since Colin Powell voted for Barack Obama, who dislikes The U.S. Constitution and the United States of America and who has attacked the country by hurting the private sector of the country, it means that is what Colin Powell supports, and that makes Colin Powell a dangerous man.
Face the Nation is a weekly program shown on CBS-TV on Sunday morning. On February 21, 2010, Colin Powell appeared on the program, and Bob Schiffer was hosting as usual. Bob Schieffer asked Colin Powell if he had an regrets about voting for Barack Obama in November 2008, and Colin Powell stated, "None Whatsoever....."
On Thursday, October 25, 2012, Colin Powell showed that he supports communism and is probably a communist, and he did it while he was a guest on CBS This Morning (on CBS-TV). I have to make an interruption, here. By Thursday, October 25, 2012, it was clearly evident that Barack Obama was a bad man and not a nice man, who had violated The United States Constitution several times, had showed himself to be a perpetual liar, had made friends with leaders of countries who were bad people, et cetera, and it was clearly evident that Barack Obama had been working to hurt the country economically, and it was clearly that Barack Obama was involved in a cover up related to the recent killing of four Americans (one of whom was an ambassador) by a terrorist attack in Libya. Yet, on Thursday, October 25, 2012, Colin Powell said these words on CBS This Morning: "...Well, you know, I voted for him [Barack Obama] in 2008, and I plan to stick with him in 2012, and I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden next month...." and "...Let me say why. When he took over, ah, the country was in very, very difficult straits. We were in one of worst recessions we had seen in recent times--close to a depression. And I saw over the next several years stabilization come back in financial community. Housing is now starting to pick up after four years--it's starting to pick up. Consumer confidence is rising. And so I think generally we've come out of the dive, and we're starting to gain altitude...." It could be said that Colin Powell spoke out his colon, given how, for one, the country at this date was an extra five-trillion dollars (or five-thousand-billion dollars) deeper in debt because of what Barack Obama had signed in to law since he had become the U.S. President and given the credit status of the country was lower than it had been when Barack Obama had become the U.S. President. Colin Powell is a liar and an evil man--not only lying about his being a "Republican" but also about other matters. (By the way, Colin Powell screwed up in one of his speaking moments shown here--it should be "...I'll be voting for him and for Vice President Joe Biden..." instead of "...I'll be voting for he and for Vice President Joe Biden....".)
Author special note: By the way, Barack Obama wants a civilian military to exist in the country, that which will be as well funded as the regular military and that which could be likened to special military forces of dictators and such, and I wonder if Barack Obama is cosindering Colin Powell for the position as leader of the civilian military, which is something good citizens of this country should never allow to exist.

Charles Bernard Rangel (a Democrat and a U.S. Representative related to New York):
Since January 2007, he has been the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Robert Reich (a Democrat): This man was the U.S. Secretary of Labor during the administration of Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.
On Tuesday, October 1, 2009, Mark R. Levin hosted his nationally syndicated radio show The Mark Levin Show), and he talked about video clips that he had seen recently of Robert Reich, and the clips had Robert Reich talking to students at the University of California--Berkeley on September 26, 2007, and Mark R. Levin noted that the clips surprised him, because Robert Reich was being serious, and Mark R. Levin played the audio of the video that he had seen. Mark R. Levin set up the clips by noting that Robert Reich was talking about what he would do--the government would do--if, for one, a candidate did not have to worry about being elected, and Robert Reich noted how he would reorganize our health-care system (and there was other thought from Robert Reich). I got the impression from Robert Reich's words that what Robert Reich was talking about what was like a wish list for him, and Robert Reich was talking seriously.
Here is the first audio clip in text form: "'...We're going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months--it's too expensive. So we're going to let you die....'"
Here is the text form of the second clip: "'...Ah, also, ah, I'm going to use the bargaining leverage of the federal government, ah, in terms of Medicare, Medicaid--we already have a lot of bar, bargaining leverage--ah, to force drug companies and insurance companies and medical suppliers to reduce their costs, but that means less innovation, and that means less new products and less new drugs on the market, which means you are probably not going to live that much longer than your parents....'"
And here is the final audio clip in text form: "'...An, look, we are, we have the only health-care system in the world that is designed to avoid sick people, and that's true, and what I'm going to do is I'm going to try to reorganize it to be more amenable to treating sick people, but that means you--particularly you young people, ah, really you young health people--you're going to have to pay more....'"
I note that Mark R. Levin said that he was making the video clips related to the audio clips available at the Web site for his radio show, and to see a fuller presentation of this event, you should see "Special note #16" in the document entitled National Health Care and Mass Failure: The Reasons it is a Dead Issue, a link to which exists at the end of this document.
Now we move on to another day in the life of Robert Reich, who is at least a socialist and may be, in truth, a communist. On Tuesday, March 1, 2011, Robert Reich was on MSNBC Live and was interviewed by Cenk Uygur, and one thing that Robert Reich said is: "...Also breeds a kind of anger. I mean suddenly middle-class people, lower-middle-class people, working-class people are frustrated. Republicans are very good at channeling that anger toward--what?--government, immigrants, public employees. Ah, well, an angry population and an angry populace could just as easily turn their anger toward the very rich. Again, it is in the interest of the people at the top to actually call for a more equitable distribution of the gains of economic growth and a better tax system, a tax system that is fair...." You have just read a set of quoted words from Robert Reich that is filled with nonsense and illogic, but I say that is what you get from a man who wishes to take from those who have more than he does so that he can have more stature and wealth than they have--really, the rule is socialists and communists in government who take from the so-called rich do not take from themselves and when the socialists and communists in government take from the so-called rich, people soon find that the socialists and communists in government are the rich.
Harry Reid (a Democrat and the Majority Leader in the U.S. Senate):
Consider these two comments that Harry Reid made on April 2007: "...Now, I believe, myself, that the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, and you have to make your own decisions whether the President's knows that this war is lost and that the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday...," and, later on the U.S. Senate floor, he added "...As long as we follow the president's path in Iraq, the war is lost...." [For one, Harry Reid, through his comments, was undermining U.S. President George W. Bush and the U.S. military, and what happened is, despite his non-support, which probably got some troops killed, the surge did work.]
On Friday, March 5, 2010, the federal government released unemployment figures once again, and Harry Reid said on this day: "...Today is a big day in America. Own, only thirty-six-thousand people lost their jobs today, which is really good...."
The U.S. Constitution defines the structure of the United States of America, and it is a document that is designed to treat each person equally under the law and provide a general set of rules for the country, and, of course, it contains "The Bill of Rights," which lists what the government cannot do to the individuals of the country. "Conservatives" are people who uphold the values of The U.S. Constitution (and I talk about "conservatism" in my document entitled Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means, which can be reached by using this link: Conservatism), and, generally speaking, real Republicans (members of the Republican Party) are "Conservatives." As a rule, "Liberals"--members of the Democratic Party--do not uphold the ways of The U.S. Constitution, wishing to have a government in which they can make rules and laws without any of the restrictions of The U.S. Constitution, and one such person is Barack Obama and yet another is Barack Obama-supporter U.S. Senator Harry Reid, who cannot believe a person who can be called "Hispanic" would dare be a "Republican," especially it seems a person who wishes to be an individual and have laws applied equally to every individual. On Tuesday, August 10, 2010, Harry Reid, while on a campaign stop in Nevada, said, "...I don't know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. Okay? Do I need to say more?...." I ask--Why would a person who might be considered Hispanic not want to live in a country that has such protections for the individual against bad politicians as The U.S. Constitution has and why would a person who might be considered Hispanic want to live in a country where politicians have complete power to tell the individual what to do, which is the way of a communist country? It seems Harry Reid does not think highly of individuals who might be considered "Hispanic."
Laura Richardson (a Democrat and a U.S. Representative for California, based in Long Beach):
Here is a statement that she made on April 7, 2009, on CNN (particularly The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer), after having recently returned from a visit to Fidel Castro of Cuba as part of a team representing the "Congressional Black Caucus": "...What really was amazing to me is he leaned in, he looked directly into our eyes, ah, quite aware of what was happening, and said and said to us, 'How can we help, how can we help President Obama?' He talked about the fact that he had watched the campaign. You know, for people who seem to think that in Cuba people don't have shoes, they don't have jobs, they don't have ice cream--I mean these people are living and working and participating as we, as many, in fact, some were even in a better situation than in some portions of my district...." [Fidel Castro has run Cuba as a dictator for decades, and Cuba is a dead nation, which is one reason over the last few decades, Cubans have regularly tried to escape Cuba for the U.S. in old boats, make-shift boats, rafts, and whatever (news stories can be found about escapes). It seems Laura Richardson and the past Democrats of her district have surely done poorly for people in her district and set a bad example of how to live in her district--given she notes how bad some people in her district have it. All in all, Laura Richardson lied about the quality of life in Cuba, which is not much more than a farming community--the main products of which are tobacco and sugar--controlled by a dictator! And it looks as if Laura Richardson believes Cuba's economic model is done well and should be adopted, which shows her ignorance and dangerousness to individuals. (By the way, Daily Breeze (of California) on May 21, 2008, published a story in which it was noted that Laura Richardson had to give up her home in Sacramento, California, to foreclosure.)]
Mitt Romney (a Republican politician):
This man is considered a good businessman, and he calls himself a Republican. On March 23, 2010, Barack Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, and it is a terrible law, which will, for one, lead to the government controlling and running the entire health-care industry in the country, and the laws has such bad things as--it allows the federal government to have real-time access to the financial accounts of every citizen, and it forces all adults to buy health-care insurance (under duress), and it will lead to the rationing of health care in the country, as happens in the United Kingdom and Canada, where there are socialistic-type health-care systems that are similar with what the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will lead to. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act needs to be completely repealed, and to repeal it, there has to be a person in the U.S. Presidency who can be virtually guaranteed to sign a law that repeals the 2010 act. Mitt Romney was the governor in Massachusetts when the state-health-care system for Massachusetts was started up in 2006, and Mitt Romney does not seem to be the person who would most assuredly strike down the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Mitt Romney has sometimes given Barack Obama praise). Mitt Romney, who has not shown himself to be a real "conservative," should not be chosen to be the U.S. Presidential candidate for the Republican Party for the 2012 election!
Ed Schmidt (a businessman):
This man is the Chief Operating Officer (or CEO) of Google, which is an Internet-associated company, and he appeared in Barack Obama's famous informercial shown on several networks on October 29, 2008.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (a politician):
On March 3, 2011, this woman while a member of the U.S. House of Representatives (a Democrat related to Florida) made at least one statement on MSNBC that showed her bad mind, but it did help more to define what the Democratic Party of today is: "...I was at a childcare center in my district on Monday, Jake, and literally stood with moms who when they lose their childcare as a result of the, ah, cuts in HR1, they're gonna have to stop working, they're not gonna be able to send their kids to school, and they won't get an early childhood education. And we know that cuts like that will directly lead to kids becoming criminals ne, later on. We knows there's that direct proportional relationship...." Debbie Wasserman Schultz on the public airwaves actually tried to defend that kids who do not get childcare become criminals. That is nonsense. That is a lie. By the way, Debbie Wasserman Schultz did not mention in the interview on MSNBC that Democratic Party policies killed of, for example, the 1960s have helped kill black families having two parents in the home, and when there are not two parents in the home, that leads to kids becoming criminals, since a father is not around to, for one, rein in a young man.
Chuck Schumer (a Democrat and a U.S. Senator related to New York):
"...The issue was plain and simple that they don't like investments, they don't like the government to spend money on education and schools, they don't like the federal government to spend money on helping people with their health care, they don't like the government to spend money on transportation, helping rebuild our roads and bridges, or spend money on changing our energy policy so that we're not dependent on foreign oil...." [It is said during the time the U.S. Congress was working on the famous "stimulus" package of January/February 2009, and it was the "Republicans" in the U.S. Congress who were the "they," and the statement is filled with nonsense, since "Republicans" have spent over the decades a lot of money on health-care issues, roads, bridges, education, schools, et cetera, and the amounts are truly emormous, and the statement is all garbage, and the "stimulus" package was so over bloated with garbage projects, the Republicans (except for three in the U.S. Senate) had to vote against it--it was a horrible bill and is a horrible law, which you can read more about in the document entitle T.H.A.T. #59, which can be reached at this link: T.H.A.T. #59.]
"...They have nothing positive to say, the world has changed, the old Reagan [U.S. President Ronald Reagan] philosophy which, you know, served them well politically from 1980 to about 2004, 2006 is over. But the 'hard right' which still believes when the federal government moves, chop off his hands, still believes, you know, that traditional values kind of arguments and, ah, strong foreign policy--all that's over. And I think President Obama has a pretty smart strategy--he's gonna talk bipartisanship to the Americans, but realizes that until the Republican grassroots pushes their people over, if that ever happens, we're not going to get change in the House and Senate...." [Chuck Schumer said this on The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC around mid-April 2009. The group of words is very telling about Chuck Schumer, the Democrats, and, especially Barack Obama. First, the Reagan philosophy is an old useful philosophy, which goes back at least to the founding of the country--"Conservatism" is, for one, about a government "for the people and by the people," about the individual, and about protecting the individual from bad government, and conservatism is not about an "individual," such as a king or savior, as Barack Obama seems to see himself, and conservatism is not gone, and it can be found in the minds of people all over the country. Second, Chuck Schumer discounts "traditional values," which he does not define, but traditional values can be, for one, moral values, and, in relation to the U.S. Constitution, traditional values can deal with the right to pursue life, liberty, and freedom and can deal with features that give the individual freedom from bad government, such as tyrannical laws, and traditional values can deal with the right to own property. Third, "bipartisanship" is nonsense; for instance, good people should not hope elected representatives who fight for the individual and what the U.S. Constitution stands for work toward bipartisanship, because it can mean the people who fight for the freedom of the individual against government will give up something that they should not when creating laws and will become accustomed to not siding against and fighting against bad elected representatives and their bad ideas (especially when the public is misinformed or uninformed about what proposed laws or rules that are bad will really do and yet put pressure on elected representatives to pass the bad proposed laws or rules]. Fourth, Barack Obama is going to "talk bipartisanship" and will lie while doing it, since he is not really going to work toward bipartisanship. Fifth, a strong foreign policy should never be "over," since all over the world are dangerous people--killers, tyrants, Marxists, thieves, enslavers, communistists, and such--and, for example, there are countries that wish to do harm to the U.S. and to other good countries and peoples. In the end, you should see Chuck Schumer promotes garbage and is garbage.]
Arnold Schwarzenegger (the governor of California, who was elected under the Republican label):
Arnold Schwarzenegger is overseeing a dead state, a place where the taxes are high and industry is disappearing, and it is a place where the government pays for the health care of illegal aliens, and Arnold Schwarzenegger supports policies of Barack Obama's, such as the national CAFE standards, new versions of which were issued in May 2009.
Reverend Al Sharpton (a radical): This man is a Baptist religious leader, activist, and radio-show host (his show is entitled Keepin' It Real).
Olympia Snowe (a Republican in the U.S. Senate related to Maine):
This woman is a fake "Republican," as can be see by how she voted on federal bills in at least 2009 (evidence that she is not a "conservative" or a "Republican" can be seen in my document entitled Enemies of the United States of America: Politicians Who Have Hurt You and Your Family by Voting "Yes" on Bad Federal, which can be done by using the link at the end of this document).
On Tuesday, October 13, 2009, Olympia Snowe was involved in a vote in a U.S. Senate committee (the Finance Committee) that passed a health-care measure, which she had not read and which no one who voted on the measure had read, and the measure passed on a 14 to 9 vote, and she was the only "Republican" to vote yes on the measure, and, later in the day, she made this statement: "...So is this bill all that I would want? Far from it! Is it all that it can be? No! But when history calls, history calls. And I happen to think that the consequences of inaction dictate the urgency of Congress to take every opportunity to demonstrate its capacity to solve the monumental issues of our time...." Note: Olympic Snowe does not think there comes a time when nothing should be done, especially when what is offered is against The U.S. Constitution, will take away the rights of the individual in the country, and will destroy the private health-care industry in the country. This woman is dangerous and stupid at the very least. But Olympia Snow is concerned about what the Congress will be perceived as.
Sonia Sotomayor (a judge in the federal court system):
On Tuesday, May 26, 2009, Barack Obama nominated this woman, a judge on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, to be a new member of the U.S. Supreme Court.
At Duke University (in Durham, North Carolina), in February 2005, she said during a panel discussion: "...All of these legal defense funds out there, they're looking for people with Court of Appeals experience, because it is, Court of Appeals is where policy is made, and I know, I know this is on tape, and I should never say that, because we don't make law, I know. Ah, ah." (There is laughter from people at the event.) "I know. I'm not, I'm not promoting, I'm not advocating it. I'm, you know...." [This was one of those incidents in which a person makes a statement, which sorts of sneaks out past the lips, and then must backtrack and try to cover up having said what should not have been said. It must be remembered by an individual that, in the United States of America, law--"policy"--is created through vote of the citizens and by legislatures, such as the U.S. Congress, and it is not a court that is supposed to set "policy," and it is the role of a court to interpret laws or apply laws to situations, and the court is supposed to be blind to the ethnic background, the appearance, the race, et cetera of any person who appears before the court, which is the way it has to be so that every individual is treated equally in the law. Sonia Sotomayor seems to believe she can make policy and forget about legislatures and the people and the rule of law, and that is bad, since she promotes the idea of an oligarchy, in which, for one, a few high-level judges could rule on all matters and displace rules voted on by the people and rules passed by the legislatures, such as the U.S. Congress, and even the U.S. President. By the way, "empathy," a word used by Barack Obama, should not be used when considerating a person for a position of work like a judge, and Barack Obama was looking for a person with "empathy."]
In a October 1991 speech at the UC Berkeley School of Law, Sonia Sotomayor said, "...Justice O'Connor has often been cited as saying that 'A wise old man and a wise old woman reach the same conclusion in dueling cases.' I'm not so sure Justice O'Connor is the author of that line, since Professor Resnik attributes the line to Supreme Court Justice Coyle. I'm not so sure that I agree with the statement. First, if Professor Martha Minnow is correct, there can never be a universal definition of wise. Second, I would hope that a wise woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life...." [A judge is supposed to rule in relation to the rules of law, and what a judge has as a background related to experience in life or as a woman or a man should not matter--a judge's individual life experience is not law that is to be interpreted or apply to court situations.]
By the way, WorldNetDaily reported in a story on May 27, 2009, that the American Bar Associated noted that Sonia Sotomayor is a member of the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic civil-rights group that, for instance, pushes local police and state police to not enforce immigration laws and has ties to groups that wish to have some southwestern states secede from the United States of America (Kovacs, Joe. "LAW OF THE LAND: Sonia Sotomayor 'La Raza member': American Bar Association lists Obama choice as part of group." WorldNetDaily.com, 27 May 2009, 11:20 p.m. Eastern.).
It was on Monday, June 29, 2009, that the U.S. Supreme Court announced some rulings. One of the rulings was related to a court case (in a lower court) that was overseen by Judge Sonia Sotomayor, and the court case was, in essence, about white firefighters in Connecticut and their inability to get better jobs because of discrimination rules. The U.S. Supreme Court, in a five to four decision, overturned Judge Sonia Sotomayor's decision, and it was the sixth time in seven cases that Judge Sonia Sotomayor was overturn, which shows her skill as a judge is poor.
On Thursday, January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court announced the results of the court case known as vs. Federal Election Commission, and it could be argued well by me that the case was the first big case voted on by Sonia Sotomayor, since it dealt with freedom of speech and the potential ability to censor the distribution of some movies and books, and, in essence, Sonia Sotomayor, through her vote, showed that she likes the idea of the federal government's having the ability to censor some books, which is against the First Amendment of The U.S. Constitution, and, to learn more about the subject, you should see the document entitled Fairness?: A Guide for the Individual Woman and the Individual Man in the United States of America, which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document.
See: "Robert Gibbs" section.
Debbie Stabenow (a Democrat in the U.S. Senate related to Michigan):
This woman is one of the federal government persons who is trying to impose some type of censorship system on radio--particularly talk-shows hosts who can be called "Conservatives" or "Libertarians." [To learn more, you should see the document entitled T.H.A.T. #58, which can be reached at T.H.A.T. #58, and you should see the document entitled Fairness?: A Guide for the Individual Woman and the Individual Man in the United States of America, which can be reached at Fairness.]
Jon Stewart (the host of The Daily Show of Comedy Central):
Around the week of Monday, April 6, 2009, Mark R. Levin's book entitled Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto (a good book for the individual to read) was "number one" on the best-selling book list in the country, and people were seeing great signs of "tyranny" in what Barack Obama was doing and what the government, especially the federal government, was doing and had been doing in at least recent years that was related to tyrannical practices of government, such as setting policies related to false science or "global climate change," Jon Stewart joked about "tyranny": "...Yes, tyranny, a.k.a. our democratically elected president. (There is a bit of background laughter from the audience.) You know what, guys...I think you might be confusing tyranny with losing. (There is a lot of background laughter from the audience.) And I feel for you, because, ah, I've been there. (A little more background laughter from the audience.) A few times! In fact, one of them was bit of a nail-bitter. (More background laughter.) But see when the guy that you disagree with gets elected, he's probably going to do things you disagree with. (A bit more laughter.) He could cut taxes on the wealthy, remove government's oversight capability, ah, invade a country that you thought should not be invaded, but that's not tyranny, that's democracy. (A bit more laughter.) See now you're in the minority, it's supposed to taste like a **bleep** taco! And, by the way, if I remember correctly when disagreement was expressed about that president's actions when you all were in power, I believe the response--Why do you hate America? Watch what you say. Love it or leave it. Suck on my **bleep**...."
Martha Stewart (a television personality): This woman has hosted television shows, such as do-it-type shows on a national bases for many years, and one of her shows is Martha (or The Martha Stewart Show), which is a weekday show that is distributed nationally (through syndication), and she is very rich and is the focus of a big company called Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, which was created in 1997 and made a public company in 1999, and one magazine associated with her is Martha Stewart Living. Because she lied to investigators who were working on evidence that she had been involved in insider-trading of stock in 2004, she ended up serving about five months in prison.
Cass Sunstein: This man is an advisor to Barack Obama, and he is the man who wrote the book entitled The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution--And Why We Need It More Than Ever, which is a book that goes against what the United States of America is.
Maxine Waters (a Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives who is related to California):
On Wednesday, September 16, 2009, Maxine Waters did a telephone interview with Bill Press (a "liberal") for The Bill Press Show, which is a nationally syndicated radio show, and one comment that Maxine Waters made was: "...And so what I'm looking for is and, ah, I'm looking for the very people who carried the signs, ah, who are, ah, referring to, ah, the policies in very, very strange ways like 'Obamacare and Bury,' ah, "Obamacare with Kennedy.' I want those people talked to. I want them interviewed. I want journalists to be all over those, ah, rallies and those marches of the 'birthers' and the 'teabaggers.' Let's find out what they think...." [Note: I am not sure if Maxine Waters said "bury," but it sounded like it.] Notice how well this woman did not talk, and notice how she wants journalists to go after those Americans who are protesting against Barack Obama--notice she is hoping to get journalists to put the pressure on. Do you hear a threat?
Henry Waxman (a Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives who is related to California):
This man's name existed on the cap-and-trade bill of the federal government that was being put together in May 2009 or so, and the bill was officially known as the Waxman-Markey Bill.
Around May 21, 2009, Henry Waxman said this in relation to the Waxman-Markey Bill: "...Well, I certainly don't claim to know everything that's in this bill. I know that we've left it to, we rely very heavily on the scientists, on the I.P.C.C. [of the United Nations], and others on the consensus that they have that there is a problem of, of global warming. It's having an impact, and that, ah, we need to reduce it by the amounts we need to achieve in order to avoid some of the consequences....but I don't know the details. I rely on the scientists...." [Henry Waxman is the man putting the dangerous-to-the-economy bill together, but he does not know everything that is in the bill, so what use is Henry Waxman? The I.P.C.C. is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Remember: Information put out by the United Nations is useless, since much of what the United Nations does is controlled by dictator nations, communist nations, et cetera.]
Oprah Winfrey (an actress and talk-show host): This woman is a television talk-show host who really began to become nationally known in September 1986, when her weekday show began to be distributed in syndication on a national basis, and then very well known later, and she is based in Chicago, Illinois, and she is also a producer of movies and other media products.
Reverend Jeremiah Wright (a reverend): This man was the senior pastor at Trinity United Church of Christ, which is based in Chicago for thirty-six years, ending in early 2008, and now he is considered Pastor Emertus, and, for about twenty years, Reverend Jeremiah Wright was Barack Obama's pastor.
Here are news entities or organizations to watch out for or be wary of in relation to political news:
Detroit Free Press -- This newspaper is based in Detroit, Michigan.
Los Angeles Times -- This newspaper is based in Los Angeles, California, and the newspaper is considered a national publication, since it gets distributed nationally or is available nationally.
MoveOn.org -- This Internet-based entity, which is a liberal public-policy advocacy group, was started as an e-mail group in 1998, and it is headed by Joan Blades and Wes Boyd.
The New York Times -- This newspaper is based in New York City, New York, and the newspaper is considered a national publication, since it gets distributed nationally or is available nationally (the history of the newspaper goes back to the 1800s)
The Washington Post -- This newspaper is based in Washington, D.C.
Incidentally, the Dallas Morning News, New York Post, and Washington Times are only some of the newspapers that endorsed John McCain over Barack Obama and then were, in essence, excommuniated from being able to be somewhat close to Barack Obama so that they could report on Barack Obama while Barack Obama was campaigning late in the campaign season in 2008; the John McCain campaign dropped Maureen Dowd of The New York Times and Joe Klein of Time magazine for what they were reporting through a liberal slant about John McCain.
Here are notes about television news organizatons to watch out for or be wary of in relation to political news:
The Associated Press is a news-gathering organization, and, for instance, it sells news reports and news copy to radio stations and television stations (the history of this entity can be traced back to the 1800s). CBS-TV is a commercial broadcast network, and NBC-TV is a commercial broadcast network, which has a sister cable network known as MSNBC. ABC-TV can be put in the category, but it must be noted, on October 29, 2008, Barack Obama had an infomercial aired on such networks as Fox TV, CBS-TV, and NBC-TV, and it was not on ABC-TV, and I do not know why it was not placed on ABC-TV, but ABC-TV had run clips of Reverend Jeremiah Wright's sermons for viewers previously, and, maybe, Barack Obama was punishing ABC-TV for doing that, or ABC-TV refused to carry the infomercial, and despite that information, ABC-TV has to be treated as suspect. And since PBS does receive money from the federal government and is tied to the federal government, news programs, talk shows, and documentaries related to the environment of PBS have to be avoided.
Note: This section will be expanded from time to time in the future.
