Obama Calls His White Grandmother a "Typical White Person" Quote

Read it:
"The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity -- she doesn't," he said. "But she is a typical white person who, you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there is a reaction. That has been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way."

-Barrack Obama

You are the instruments that God is gonna 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. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.

Frivolous Lawsuit Awards

The Stella Awards were inspired by Stella Liebeck. In 1992, Stella, then 79, spilled a cup of McDonald's coffee onto her lap, burning herself. A New Mexico jury awarded her $2.9 million in damages, but that's not the whole story. Ever since, the name "Stella Award" has been applied to any wild, outrageous, or ridiculous lawsuits -- including bogus cases!

Obama Quote: Bitter Cling to Religion or Guns

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And it’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Obama Quote: Let's Stop Air-Raiding Villages and Killing Civilian

Read it from the Washington Post article

Asked whether he would move U.S. troops out of Iraq to better fight terrorism elsewhere, he brought up Afghanistan and said, "We've got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we're not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there."

Obama Has Another Muslim Quote Slip

Watch It:

Read It:

In an interview Sunday with ABC's "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos, Obama tried to suggest that FOX News and others "closely allied" to Republicans are promulgating the notion that the Illinois senator is Muslim.

Asked about whether McCain himself has done anything to suggest he's Muslim, Obama said, "Let's not play games. What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you're absolutely right that that has not come..."

"Christian faith," Stephanopoulos interrupted, correcting Obama.

"... my Christian faith. Well, what I'm saying is that he hasn't suggested that I'm a Muslim. And I think that his campaign's upper echelons have not, either. What I think is fair to say is that, coming out of the Republican camp, there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith, something which I find deeply offensive, and that has been going on for a pretty long time," Obama said.

Biden's Draft Deferments

For the last eight years, but especially in 2004, the Democrats went after Dick Cheney for accepting five deferments from the draft during the Vietnam War. Now, however, the Democrats have their own VP candidate with the same record of draft deferments. Joe Biden took five student deferments and later got classified as ineligible except in case of national emergency for asthma — even though his biography emphasizes his ability at sports as a youth:

Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick Cheney, and later was disqualified from service because of asthma as a teenager.

Officials with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s campaign released Biden’s Selective Service records at the request of The Associated Press. Less detailed records were available from a National Archives facility in Philadelphia.

Obama 57 State Slip

Hey, folks, Want to participate in tweaking the Drive-By Media? You are aware, probably, that Barack Obama lost his bearings recently and said that he was going to campaign in all 57 states. You heard this? And everybody chalked it up to, "Well, he's tired."
You know, this is a Dan Quayle moment. I mean, Dan Quayle goes out there and misspells "potato," and we still hear jokes about it. Barack Obama says he's gonna go out and campaign in 57 states, he was just tired, you know, it's been such a long campaign, he's been so many places, he probably thinks there are 57 states.
Well, I have here a printout from a website called the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And here is how the second paragraph of an article on that website begins. "Every year from 1999 to 2005 the organization
of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states presented a resolution to the United Nations commission on human rights called combating."

We're participating here in a tweak of the media. Obama said he's going to campaign in 57 states, and it turns out that there are 57 Islamic states. There are 57 Islamic states. "Every year from 1999 to 2005, the organization of the Islamic conference representing the 57 Islamic states," this is from the International Humanist and Ethical Union. And the title of the piece here is, "How the Islamic states dominate the UN human rights council," and there are 57 of them.
So did Obama just lose his bearings, or was this a more telling slip, ladies and gentlemen?

Understanding Obama & Race Politics

I have compiled a list of some insightful writings that expose a common theme:

Dr. Shelby Steele on Obama & Race

Mascot Politics

Obama the Magic Negro - LA Times

Obama the Magic Negro - LA Times

Read Obama the 'Magic Negro' written in the LA Times.

The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. "He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist," reads the description on Wikipedia .
He's there to assuage white "guilt" (i.e., the minimal discomfort they feel) over the role of slavery and racial segregation in American history, while replacing stereotypes of a dangerous, highly sexualized black man with a benign figure for whom interracial sexual congress holds no interest.

Michelle Obama's Senior Thesis Quote

A passage from Michelle Obama's 1985 Princeton senior thesis t

"[i]t is possible that Black individuals either chose to or felt pressure to come together with other Blacks on campus because of the belief that Blacks must join in solidarity to combat a White oppressor."
From 2/29/2008 Media Matters

Michelle Obama (LaVaughn Robinson at the time) went to Princeton majored in sociology and received a certificate in African-American Studies. Her Senior Thesis was titled Princeton Educated Blacks and the Black Community (96 pages, 1985, Sociology Department, Located at Mudd Library). She examined how the attitudes of black alumni have changed over the course of their time at the University. "Will they become more or less motivated to benefit the Black community?"

Mentally Retarded Suicide Bombers: Not The First Time

Today's latest from Baghdad:

2/2/2007 ABC: Female Bombers Strike Markets in Baghdad: 2 Mentally Retarded Female Bombers Strike Pet Markets in Baghdad, Killing at Least

This is not the first time they used mentally handicapped suicide bombers.  Just dug this up from my journal while I was over there.

3BCT S2 Repors:

WHO: 91EN (10TH MTN)


WHEN: 301016JAN05

WHERE: 38SMB 37930 88460 (Near Salam "Ancient Round City of Baghdad" Area)




Let me translate and give you the background so you can understand the entirety. At 1016A AM on 30th January, the day of Iraq’s first free elections, the 91st Engineers from 10th Mountain Division report that one of Mus’ab al-Zarqawi’s “lions” of his terror group called Monotheism in the Martyrs Brigade affiliated with al-Qa'ida of Jihad Organization in the Land of the Two Rivers (the Tigris and Euphrates, yes Al Qaida operates in Iraq there is a connection) conducted martyrdom operations (suicide bombing) to attempt to intimidate and prevent Iraqis from voting which resulted in 1xKIA (Killed In Action) and 3xLN WIA (Local Nationals Wounded In Action).

The closest the suicide bomber could get to his target, a neighborhood polling site in Baghdad and Iraqi civilian voters in line, was 500 meter away next to a the Al Iskand Children’s Hospital (which means Kudos to the American and Iraqi Security Forces). The terrorist group failed it’s objective to influence the will of the people and politics through violent and destructive means because not only did voting continue the rest of the day at that particular polling site and across Iraqi, but also the people were observed UAV (unmanned Aerial Vehicle), walking by the only dead body, the Suicide bomber himself (for once a real “suicide” bomber rather than the normal homicide bomber which slaughter other innocent civilians) and spitting on his corpse on their way to place their vote.

Developments would later report, that the body appeared to be of Asian decent (non-Iraqi race, shows you that it is foreigners causing the trouble in Iraq), was a kid not an adult, was in a wheel chair and as witnesses described appeared to had Down’s Syndrome.

I really pity this handicapped kid, whether he could mentally understand what he is was doing or not, had no hope or no idea what did. A Down’s syndrome and Handicapped Kamikaze Wheelchair Suicide Child Bomber it doesn’t get any more desperate than this. This shows you they don't have all these recurited jihadist willing to blow themselves up for all that martrydom with all those virgins that they claim.

Here is the media's coverage of it, which didn't make any noise.

Dr. Shelby Steele (An African American academic-the smartest man on race I have ever heard) was interviewed on Michael Medved about his new book "A Bound Man: Why We are Excited by Obama and Why He Can't Win" click here to listen to this interview.

Show Notes:
Obama, like Oprah, is a "bargainer" - "a black that comes into mainstream and says to white people, " I will give you the benefit of the doubt, I will presume you are not racists until you indicate otherwise, if you don't hold your my race against me... He plays on the white guilt because whites don't won't...The biggest Achilles heel is they can't tell you who they really are, they want to be a blank projection screen for whites to put up their own self image on. Versus an 'individual' like Bill Cosby who reveals what they truly believe and stand for then becomes exiled. "Bargainers" are opposites to 'challengers' like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, we will presume you are racists until you prove others, black power equals keeping whites on the hook."

What are Barack Obama's Connections to Islam?

Why is it okay and common for the media to confront "Pastor" Huckabee and the "Mormon" Romney and Obama gets a pass everytime?

In a democracy, the president works for us, as an American citizen, I believe I have every right to get an explanation on Obama's affilation to Islam.

Everybody has read or heard about that email was circulating around a couple months ago claiming Barack is a "radical Muslim." Snopes, an urban myth fact checker, did a could job debunking some of the rumors spread about Barack's affiliation to "radical Islam" but it also lays out some very intersting facts about the Obama family tree's connection to Islam for example :

*His father, Barack Hussein Obama, was rasied Muslim in Kenya

*Obama's older 1/2 brother, Malik Obama, still lives in Kenyan and is a Muslim

*When he was two, his mother remarried another Muslim named Lolo Soetoro.

*He then lived in Indonesia for 5 years. Although he did not attend a "Madrass" he did attend schools that were primarily Muslim, many American's don't realize that Indonesia is the world largest Muslim country-home to some of the most extreme Islamic Radicalist Terrorist today.

Why do I have to dig this up myself? Why hasn't Barak come out with this to set the record straight? Is he trying to deceive us?

Obama Disrespecting the flag

US Flag Code states during the National Anthem all present should stand at attention with right hand over heart.

Video: Obama Refuses to Wear US Pin in Protest

On October 2007 in Waterloo, Iowa, Barrack Obama was asked by a local Iowa TV station KCRG reporter:

"One last quick question, and this is just kind of a lighter note, you don't have an American flag pin on, is this a fashion statement? Those have been on politicians since September 12, 2001?" -local Iowa TV station KCRG"

Obama replied:

"You know, the truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest, instead I'm gonna try to tell the American people what I believe what will make this country great and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism."

Families United for Trooops and Their Mission

Get Involved and Join

From their site:

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are a grassroots coalition of Gold Star and Blue Star families including some with loved ones in harm's way, Veterans, and Americans who share a deep appreciation for our men and women in uniform and support them in their efforts to make America safer by allowing them to complete their mission.

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission provides a means for our Gold Star Families, who have lost loved ones in the defense of our nation, to find solace in each other’s company, and know that many others share their love, admiration and support for our armed forces. We want all the friends and families of our troops to know that we share their vision of finishing the incredibly vital task at hand and look forward to welcoming them home when the inevitable victory is achieved.

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission has four basic principles. They are:

  1. The United States was attacked. On September 11, 2001, our nation was victim to an unprovoked attack by al-Qaeda terrorists. This horrific assault was the capstone of a series of al-Qaeda terrorist attacks on our country: the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Towers, the 1998 bombing of our U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole. Our President and government leaders were right to defend our nation by aggressively pursuing the terrorists who took refuge in Afghanistan and Iraq.

  2. Our troops want to finish the job. Our all-volunteer Armed Services are comprised of brave men and women who believe in their mission, trust in their leadership, and strongly want to finish the job in Afghanistan and Iraq before leaving - and that means leaving behind self-governing democracies that can defend themselves.

  3. Democracy abroad is necessary for our security at home. Democracy can and will work in the Middle East. Iraqis and Afghans want to govern themselves and their twin successes will serve as the keystone for a more democratic, more peaceful world.

  4. We will not be safe until the terrorists are defeated. If we do not finish the job in Afghanistan and Iraq, terrorists will be strengthened and will eventually bring the fight to us here in the United States.

Our goals:

1. Support the troops. Ensure that the troops will be given the support they need to complete their mission.

2. Act as a network. Provide a means through state chapter organizations and state and national events for our members to find solace in each other's company.

3. Promote our service members' good work. Actively work to get the good news out by participating in media interviews and writing guest opinions; joining others at events to highlight the accomplishments of our soldiers; and sponsoring advertisements to ensure that the public knows everything our military is doing to defend us and to help people abroad.

Although anyone can join Families United who believes in our four principles, our organization expressly seeks to recruit War on Terror veterans, Blue Star and Gold Star families, all Armed Service veterans and Veteran Service Organizations, and community leaders and organizations.

January 30, 2005 - Iraq's 1st Election

Three years have passed now since I was with the 1st CAV in Baghdad. It's time for me to share the story of Iraq's first free election, a story that wasn't told loud enough, a story that has been forgotten already, and a story that needs to be recorded for history. I have gathered some slides from unclassified briefings. By waiting three years and filtering out the pictures of individual faces I believe it is now safe enough to share.

On January 30th, 2005 Iraq held their first election. Of the 14 million eligible voters, 8,550,571 Iraqis voted - a 58 % voter turn out. (a higher voter turnout than then United States has)

Quote: Reason Why Soldiers Fight

"A solider doesn't fight for hating those who lie in front of them, but because they love those behind him." From Huckabee's victory speech in Iowa

Body Counts

I am tired of the left wing anti-American media televising the latest count of dead American sailors, soldiers, and airmen. It is propoganda that the terrorists want you see. They want us to get tired and what to quit. You don't see the American military bragging about how many terrorist we have killed or captured. And why don't you put the 9-11 body counts along side these troop counts so Americans can remember how many civilians were murdered.

I stumbled upon It is a site that counts and tracks the latest terrorist attacks. keeps a running count of how many Iraqi civilians have been murdered by terrorist and accidentally killed by U.S. Forces.

I have also added one of their widgets in my sidebar.

Movie Rewiew: World Trade Center

It makes you think about:
*The officer workers that choose to jump instead of burn.
*The first responders that were trapped alive under the rumble
*The wives of the police officers wondering if her husband is ok.
*The fire fighters morning the lost of the friends.
*The rescue workers that refusing to give up.

It's amazing that only 2,974 innocent civilians were murdered that day and we can thank those first responders.

I recommend soldiers watch before shipping off to war. I recommend military family members watch while their loved ones are off at war. I recommend voters watch before heading to the polls. Look it's not the best film, it's not fun to watch, and everyone knows the story. We don't want to think about that day, but we should.

Our soldiers are doing their job over seas but on the homefront we need more big name directors like Stone and actors Cage to tell their stories and help Americans remember and stay united as we continue to fight our enemies. Why aren't there more movies like this?
