Examiner: The #Obama You Don’t Know (ie because the #MSM won’t tell you) #corruption #Chicagomachine


“But beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.”

Our Trojan Horse President….


Obama bows to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

Trojan Horse (definition):
concealed stratagem: somebody or something that is meant to disrupt, undermine, subvert, or destroy an enemy or rival, especially somebody or something that operates while concealed within an organization.

They say truth is stranger than fiction.

And as Robert Knight at the Washington Times points out, writing a novel about a President whose goal is to undermine the USA could never match the real thing we have in Barack Hussein Obama.

As we begin 2012, it is imperative that we remember the damage that this President has unleashed upon our country.  He must be removed from office….and this is the year we must do it.

Knights article is a great reminder of so many of the appalling things Obama has done in three years….for which much of the media and many Americans have given him a pass…

I was thinking about writing a novel about what might happen if a man who hates America and wants to bring it down is somehow elected president. What would he do?……

…….First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years. Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns…….

……….(He would)  Ship hundreds of taxpayer-purchased firearms to Mexican drug gangs in order to frame law-abiding gun sellers in Texas. When the Fast and Furious weapons are used to kill U.S. and Mexican lawmen, the attorney general will pretend he didn’t know about the program until very recently and is shocked, shocked! The attorney general will claim that critics of this criminally insane policy are motivated by racial animus against him and the president. After all, this worked when anyone questioned why the president’s college and medical records were sealed or why he attended a Marxist minister’s church for 20 years and hung out with known terrorists.

He would appoint Supreme Court justices who believe in a “living Constitution,” which means they can ignore its plain meaning when it interferes with their ideological agenda.

He would stack the National Labor Relations Board with union hacks who would do unspeakable things such as order a major company (Boeing) not to open a new factory in a right-to-work state (South Carolina) in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression. If he got away with that, he would go ahead and strengthen a crony socialist system reminiscent of Mussolini’s Italy or Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela that subsidizes “winners” such as Solyndra.

Finally, throughout his tenure, he would employ the Marxist rhetoric of class warfare, blame “the wealthy” and make more Americans dependent on government checks. He would sucker Republican leaders into secret meetings and emerge to accuse them of wanting to raise taxes on all but the rich.

Obama’s campaign bundler, “best partner”, future Treasury Secretary pick, & MF Global CEO….can’t tell us where $1.2 billion in funds went


Birds of a feather - Barack Obama and John Corzine

This whole episode with Corzine not only tells you about the corrupt ex-Governor and Senator, but also gives you an idea of both Obama’s incompetence and his corrupt ties.Never forget that Corzine is CURRENTLY one of Obama’s campaign bundlers and pulled together over $500,000 already for Obama’s 2012 campaign.  From JammieWearingFool and Washington Post (in July), Obama has called Corzine his “Wall Street Guy” and has appointed Corzine to smooth over the banking industry for re-election funds since Obama has had a heyday bashing banks for months now:

President Obama is desperately putting his Wall Street stock in an unlikely old buddy.

The beleaguered president has recruited former Goldman Sachs head honcho Jon Corzine to shore up re-election funds from the banking industry, which is furious over Obama’s financial regulations.

Corzine, the former governor of New Jersey who was blasted out of office by Republican Chris Christie in 2009, has attended secret meetings with the president and has been working on Obama’s 2012 campaign for months, The Post has learned.

The Democrat, who now leads Manhattan-based brokerage MF Global, has been tasked with scraping up the very little banking-industry support Obama can still get.

Corzine was once hailed by Obama as and “honorable man” and one of his “best partners”.  Corzine has also been considered as Obama’s Treasury Secretary pick in a second term, according to ABC News.

Former New Jersey governor and U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine, whom President Obama once hailed as an “honorable man” and one of his “best partners” in the White House, has been subpoenaed to testify before Congress about his role in the collapse of the investment firm MF Global.

Corzine was chairman and CEO of the company between March 2010 and Oct. 31, 2011, when it filed for bankruptcyAn estimated $1.2 billion has not been accounted for, leaving many investor accounts drained.  The FBI and Justice Department are also investigating the case.

The unanimous, bipartisan vote today to require Corzine to appear before the House Agriculture Committee next week sets the stage for tough questioning of one of the president’s top re-election campaign fundraisers and a man who had, until recently, been considered a top pick for Treasury Secretary in a possible second Obama term.

Yet, this “honorable man”, Obama campaign money-handler, and potential Treasury overseer, picked by Obama, headed up MF Global for a meer 19 months and now can’t account for $1.2 billion of company funds.

From the Washington Post:

In testimony prepared for delivery to Congress on Thursday, Corzine says he was “stunned” to learn shortly before the firm sought bankruptcy protection at the end of October that MF Global could not account for the money.

“I simply do not know where the money is, or why the accounts have not been reconciled to date,” the former MF Global chief executive says, according to the testimony.

Corruption runs deep around Obama and within the Democratic party.  I hope Corzine gets what is coming to him.
And Obama, should return all of the 2012 campaign funds received directly from Corzine and those bundled by Corzine.

Use of “Occupied” Zuccotti Park in NYC is bought and paid for by Obama with YOUR tax dollars — #OccupyWallStreet #OWS #BarackObama #Obamacorruption


OWS Zuccotti Park, NYC 10-5-11 - (AP Photo Bebeto Matthews)

No surprise here – Obama gives Solyndra-like loan to company that owns Zuccotti Park.   Mayor Bloomberg’s live-in love is on the company’s Board with Zuccotti himself.

Coming on the heels of the Solyndra  debacle, the Obama administration has just approved a $168.9 million loan  guarantee for the Granite Reliable wind farm project owned by Brookfield Asset Management  (BAM).

Among its many holdings BAM owns Brookfield Renewable Power, which owns the  Granite Reliable and it also owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings  include the now famous Zuccotti Park.

The Department of Energy finalized  the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took  to Zuccotti Park, and with the Obama administration’s Tuesday endorsement of the  protests, rumors  are starting to circulate that this could be the reason Brookfield is allowing  protesters to remain on its property.

Taxpayers, Obama is using your money so that these occupation-less “occupiers” (aka communists) have a nice concrete place to lay their filthy heads at night.

But that’s not all:

Mayor Bloomberg’s announcement Monday that protesters could remain as long as  they liked, also raised a few eyebrows and it turns out he has a personal  connection to Brookfield as well. The mayor’s longtime domestic partner Diana  Taylor is on the Board  of Directors at Brookfield Properties along with John E. Zuccotti himself.

And residents of New York City, Bloomberg’s questionable connections are allowing communist/socialist “occupiers” to squat in your city while trashing (no pun intended) and working to eliminate one of the biggest American institutions residing there:  Wall Street.

Conflicts of interest.  Pay-to-play.  Questionable loan at the level of a scandalous Solyndra level.

MSM where are you?

Did Hollywood “genius” Morgan Freeman see the Florida straw poll?


GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain, right, disputed actor Morgan Freeman's, left, claim on Friday that the Tea Party is 'a racist thing.'(pics: Jason Kempin/Getty; Joe Burbank/Pool)

Just wondering…did Morgan Freeman, the Hollywood Whiz Kid*, happen to take a look at the Florida Straw Poll on Saturday?

Herman Cain, a black man, won that straw poll largely from the support of the Tea Party.

Morgan Freeman said on CNN last week that members of the Tea Party are racists willing to do  whatever they can to “get this black man” (Obama) out of the White House.

The only racist I see is Morgan Freeman…..

Herman Cain responds:

“Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Partiers about having a racist  element, they have never been to a Tea Party………Name calling is something that is going to continue in this because they don’t  know how to stop this movement and this movement is making a big difference in  politics.”

Amen!  Freeman is right about one thing….the Tea Party wants the President out of the White House.

Not because of his race, but rather based on:

So, Mr. Freeman, race is not the issue as proven in Florida….but for some reason it is an issue with you and many like you.

Why don’t you attend a Tea Party (as Herman Cain suggests) before spreading your nastiness?…and then….well….

Get. Over. It.

Is “hope and change” / left-wing agenda caving in on its own weight?


(Photo: politifake.org)

As I read through news stories the past several weeks, even just days, it seems there is a common theme to a lot of news and political stories:  the left-wing agenda seems to be crashing down around itself.

Don’t get me wrong….the America apologists, statists, socialists, and global warming maniacs among us will not be raising the white flag any time soon.  But the more they double-down on their agenda, it seems, the more reality is telling a very different story than theirs.

A key indicator that voters are fed up with the antics of the last 2 1/2 years?  How about the GOP defeat in New York City District 9 in Tuesday’s  special election.  The HUGE win by the GOP marks the first time a Republican has held that seat since 1923.

In the largely Jewish district in New York, it is believed that the election was referendum on Obama’s policies on Israel, the building of a mosque at Ground Zero, and local political issues like the handling of the 9-11 anniversary.  Some also believe it was a partial referendum on New York’s same-sex “marriage” law.

When it comes to things like the building of a certain mosque, the 10-year anniversary of the attacks on 9-11 and Israel, “for every action” there has come “an equal yet opposite reaction” and the first responders have again risen from lower Manhattan…….

(on the mosque)…An August CNN/Opinion Research Poll showed 68 percent of all Americans opposed the idea. It is hallowed ground, a sacred wound……As Larry Hart of Examiner.com put it; “There are 3,000 families backed up by millions of New Yorkers backed up by hundreds of millions of Americans that are saying ‘no, you can’t build it here.'”…..Still, in spite of overwhelming public outrage for what is considered a blatantly intentional insult, David Weprin – as did Barack Obama – sided with the imam.

(on 9/11)….Weprin suffered the reflexive voter slap for Democrat Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s salting snub in not inviting New York’s first responders to the official ten-year anniversary ceremony. Still, while it was ultimately the mayor’s decision to exclude the men and women who are still seen by most of us as heroes, the president did not object. Just as American’s will “never forget” the horror of 9-11 they will remember Obama’s silence on this sensitive matter – as well as his support of the mosque – in November 2012.

(on Israel)…Who can forget the day when Barack Obama stood before cameras and the world and advised Israel to reconfigure its border to their 1967 lines in compliance with Palestinian demands?  …Ed Koch feels quite differently. In fact – according to the New York Post – the Jewish former Democrat Mayor and Holocaust survivor endorsed Bob Turner with the express purpose of sending a message to Obama that would clarify the severity of the destruction. …..   Obviously, the majority of those who showed up at the polls on Tuesday got the memo.

More crash and burn?  Take the news today that a Nobel Laureate physicist is resigning his physics society post due to global warming.  No, he doesn’t believe the earth will burn up in two weeks and he just wants to spend those two weeks enjoying himself….but quite the opposite:

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and  the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly  announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in  disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming  theory by a line claiming that “the evidence is incontrovertible.”

“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of  the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence  of global warming is incontrovertible?” he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics  society.

“The claim … is that the temperature has changed  from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to  me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and  happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.

Even more to the point and proof that Al Gore’s maniacal rages and Obama’s “green jobs” are not moving the public to their “incontrovertible” positions:

Public perception of climate change has steadily fallen since late 2009. A Rasmussen  Reports public opinion poll from August noted that 57 percent of adults  believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community on  global warming, up five points from late 2009.

The same study showed that 69 percent of those  polled believe it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified  research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs. Just 6 percent  felt confident enough to report that such falsification was “not at all  likely.”

And speaking of “green jobs”….it seems Obama’s BIG effort for green jobs creation has been nothing but an Obama campaign-crony-socialist-stimulus crock of potentially illegal and shady activity!

In February, the administration renegotiated with Solyndra’s billionaire investor- remember the one who was also a big contributor to the Obama campaign?- as the company was failing. That deal allowed billionaire George Kaiser’s foundation to jump ahead of the American taxpayers for all but $150 million of the government’s $527 million loan in any company bankruptcy.

Oh, and it’s a transaction that also happens to be illegal. Although Democrats are floating the idea that the government has the authority to make the taxpayers take a back seat to Kaiser in a bankruptcy, sources close to the investigating committee say that a plain reading of the statute never allows taxpayers to go to the back of the line under any circumstances.

In other words, under the law, the government always has the obligation to protect taxpayer money in any case, including a bankruptcy. It’s a novel concept for this administration, but it happens to be the law.

…….(from Bloomberg) When the Solyndra loan was restructured in February, OMB found in a preliminary analysis that liquidating, rather than renegotiating, would give the U.S. “greater recovery” of its investment, the committee said in the report. The company sought bankruptcy protection six months later.

Why then would the administration allow a billionaire to jump ahead of taxpayers as the company spun into bankruptcy?

Is the leftist agenda caving even further?

Yes. Speaking of bankruptcy and overall poor economic and employment performance….just soak in these headlines/articles for further proof that “Obamanomics” is a HUGE failure.  He needs to go in 2012.

Jobless Claims Rise Again — 428K Weekly First-Time Benefits Requests

$1.29 Trillion Federal Deficit

By the Numbers … Obama’s Historic Record of Failure (ie Fannie/Freddie, GM, Cash for Clunkers, US Debt Downgrade, historic debt, historic spending….)

Obama’s current policies seem to resemble an avalanche….a large, ever-increasing wave of corruption, failure, and arrogance rolling us all downhill…..all thanks to ‘ol Mr. Greek Columns and his “hope and change”.

Obama’s loss of support and accompanying critics?…well…it couldn’t happen to a nicer god guy.

Speaking of critics….. do you know what Obama’s response is to his criticsAttackWatch.com.

The Obama campaign is launching a new website to handle misinformation against President Obama,” reports the Hill. “In an email, Obama’s reelection campaign manager, Jim Messina, announced the formation of AttackWatch.com“:

“Forming the first line of defense against a barrage of misinformation won’t be easy,” Messina wrote in a fundraising email to campaign supporters. “Our success will depend on a team of researchers and writers to stay on the lookout for false claims about the President and his record, bring you the facts, and hold our opposition accountable.”

The site features ominous red-white-and-black graphics and a form calledReport an attack.”

What an arrogant and creepy little idea:

The whole thing is both creepily paranoid and bumblingly buffoonish….produced by a chimera of Richard M. Nixon and Wile E. Coyote.

So true….It is serious that we have such a paranoid as President and the failures of his policies is critical. But laughing in the face of trouble is not a bad thing….Check out the thousands of funny Attackwatch jabs and quips on Twitter!  (#AttackWatch)

Yes, Obama’s a “historic” President all right….
