“Dear Mr. Obama” – An American Soldier’s Message

Comments Off on “Dear Mr. Obama” – An American Soldier’s Message

The war in Iraq isn’t over yet, but Obama wants to pretend it is and is ready to negate all the sacrifices made by America’s service men and women. One soldier has this message for the Senator:

Foreshadowing: Obama’s HQ Is ‘Instant Tax’

Comments Off on Foreshadowing: Obama’s HQ Is ‘Instant Tax’

How’s this for some election irony? Obama set up a local campaign headquarters in an “Instant Tax” store. At least he’s not trying to hide it anymore. Sigh.

Voter Fraud Discovered In Florida & Indiana; 2,000+ Duplicant Voter Registrations

Comments Off on Voter Fraud Discovered In Florida & Indiana; 2,000+ Duplicant Voter Registrations

Here is just one of many instances of potential voter fraud emerging across the country in the lead up to Tuesday’s Presidential election. A Fort Wayne newspaper, the Journal Gazette, has discovered over 2,000 voters registered in both Florida and Indiana, potential swing states this week:

The Journal Gazette compared the list of 222,000 active registered voters in Allen County with the list of more than 12 million registered voters in Florida and found that 2,172 registrations have the same first and last names, middle names or initials and the same birth dates and are listed as active, eligible voters in both places.

These are only the identified overlaps and could be happening in every state.

TIPP Poll: +2.1 Obama Lead; Independents Shift to McCain

Comments Off on TIPP Poll: +2.1 Obama Lead; Independents Shift to McCain

Obama’s lead in the polls has shrunk to 2.1% according to 11/2/08 results from TIPP with Obama at 46.7%, McCain at 44.6%, and 8.7% undecided. TIPP attributes this shift in polls to Independent voters moving away from Obama and towards John McCain in the final days before the 2008 election. Catholics continue to return to the Right.

With a divide of just 2.1% in voters and nearly 9% left undecided McCain continues to stand an excellent chance of emerging with a victory on November 4th. Considering a scenario where McCain earned 2/3 of those undecided voters the Republican ticket would pull ahead with 50% to 49%. It will be close no matter what.

New Audio Unearthed: Obama Tells San Francisco He’ll Bankrupt The Coal Industry


Think Barack Obama is going to include coal in his “energy portfolio”? Think again. New audio just unearthed of him saying what he’ll REALLY do to the coal industry. The San Francisco Chronicle has had this interview for months. Still believe that incestuous poll showing there is “no media bias for Obama”?

Catholics Are Reconsidering McCain


It’s been a bit of a head-scratcher as to why the key Catholic vote has been so enamored of Obama. Chalk it up to Obama’s media saturation and issue distraction. Now, however, it seems that many Catholics are reconsidering their position on Obama, and are moving over to McCain.

Father Jonathan Morris, a regular contributer on religious issues for Fox News and CNN, is someone I’ve always been fond of. He has a gentle, yet firm way about boldly speaking up for what is truly right. Fr. Morris always projects the genuine concern for the social issues that the Catholic Church and other conservatives hold dear… like help for the poor, service to the community and the right to life. It’s that last issue that has many Catholics changing their minds about their choice for President.

Fr. Morris reported this morning that over 100 Catholic bishops all over the country recently wrote personal letters to parishioners highlighting that some issues take precedence over others, and that the right to life is the most important issue of all. They are urging their flocks to remember that the Catholic church holds sacred ALL life; that it should be the preeminent concern over the economy and financial issues facing the country. Now, 11 percent of Catholics who previously supported Obama, are thought to have changed their minds in favor of McCain. Fr. Morris points out that because the Democrat party has evolved away from key social values, and the fact that the right to life has not been given any voice in the party’s plank, “values” voters must reconsider supporting Obama.

“Values” voters surprised the mainstream media in the 2004 election when exit polls showed they were voting in huge numbers, and that traditional values were their #1 issue. This segment of the voting population has been virtually ignored in the press this year. Could they be the silent swing vote that is part of the recent tightening of the race? Don’t count on the mainstream media to tell you, the pollsters haven’t been asking their samples about whether traditional values are important to them.

As of last night, fully 18 million voters were still undecided, and were trending towards McCain. The expected record voter turnout could be as high as 135 million voters. This means that at least 7.5 percent of the potential vote is still up for grabs. With the polls showing such a tight race, these undecideds could determine the winner. And the “November Surprise” could be the turnout of the silent “values” voters.

Shocker! Affleck Skewers Keith Olbermann On SNL…On NBC!

1 Comment »

Well, it’s nice to see SNL start taking some potshots at the left! Saturday Night Live’s political punditry has been GREAT this year, with spot-on performances by several of the cast. Here, last night’s guest host Ben Affleck turns in a hilarious performance as crazy Keith Olbermann. NBC gives Olberman another kick in the pants after busting him down from his anchor position with Chris Matthews! This is truly one of Affleck’s finest moments.

Update: The ratings are in for last night’s McCain’s appearance on SNL. The Maverick’s skits helped boost SNL to its second highest ratings in eleven years, second only to Palin’s October 18th appearance. America loves it some McCain-Palin!

Last night, John McCain followed his running-mate’s appearance on Saturday Night Live with one of his own. This time around Tina Fey stood in for Sarah Palin and did a great job once again. Check out both of McCain’s skits:

Obama’s Marxist “Civilian Security Force” Sounds A Lot Like Cuba, Or Orwell

1 Comment »

Matt let us in on Barack Obama’s plan for creating a “Civilian Security Force” in the clip filmed Wednesday where Obama says:

“Loving your country shouldn’t just mean watching fireworks on the 4th of July,” he said. “Loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it. If you do, your life will be richer, our country will be stronger. We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

Like Matt said, we already have the force- The National Guard. But what are our additional domestic needs for a fully funded force that is just as powerful as our military? Unfortunately for America, Barack Obama has another model he’s shown a great affinity for, and it’s already practiced in Marxist Cuba.

Obama hasn’t hid his fondness for Marxism, in fact he said in his memoir that he “was quite attracted to it.” I don’t think The National Guard, or whatever this new “Civilian Security Force” would be called, is gonna be focused on stopping terrorists. No, it would basically create a Force For The Defense of Liberal Ideology and Political Correctness funded by a hell of a lot of taxpayer dollars. “National Security” for the left is about teaching our kids to understand the terrorists and their motivations so that they’ll learn not to offend the extremely sensitive America-haters.

THIS definition of “National Security” is ment to make you act for the common good of society and not in your own best interest. And it lines right up with the viewpoints of Obama’s “carefully chosen friends”: Marxist professors, domestic terrorists, racketeers, radical Chicanos, hard feminists, Black Liberation Theologists, and others who hate Israel.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this is Barack’s idea of an extra layer of protection from outside threats to our country. No, my friend, YOU are the threat, you and your ideas that don’t conform to being controlled. The left’s agenda for your behavior has been marching steadily on for decades. But now, Obama wants to fund an army to make sure your speech and behavior is correct. and best for the collective good. If he gets his way, you’ll get to pay billions for your own 1984, AND work for Big Brother too!
