Obama Continues His Assault On The First Amendment

Posted by Casey on September 29, 2008

I seem to recall a bunch of people talking about a fear of a gestapo here in the US based on Bush’s policies.  The funny thing is that those fears were based on falsehoods, but those people are most likely all supporters of Obama.  Why is this funny?  Because Obama is actually using gestapo like tactics to silence political opponents.  He’s even getting law enforcement involved.

We all remember how he repeatedly attempted to censor a radio station’s guests and hosts.

Now he’s actually using a secret police like tactic to silence his political opponents.  Here’s a video link confirming that prosecutors and sheriffs are getting involved in harassing Obama’s critics.  Notice that they will not perform the same duties for McCain even though McCain is lied about regularly in political ads.  This includes the cancer ad.

The gestapo like tactics of the Obama campaign against his critics is starting to get even worse.  Critics are now threatened with libel charges, and they are working to ban third party political ads.  The Missouri governor condemned the Obama tactics, and let’s not forget the previous plan to prosecute citizens.  At least the DOJ has said it won’t prosecute, but that doesn’t take away the fact that Obama requested it.

The latest issue with the NRA ad, and the truth squads had Factcheck.org backing up Obama.  I typically find Factcheck.org to be a reliable and solid source … though they have been wrong before.  The NRA says they’re wrong now, but Factcheck.org says the NRA is wrong.  Truth is … they’re both right and wrong.  Obama’s campaign used this piece from Factcheck.org on the NRA ad to support his position to have AIP donors prosecuted and censored.

So if Factcheck.org says Obama is right what’s the big deal?

The advertisement is not illegal … even if it contains inaccuracies and spin.  Obama has no legal standing to censor the ad, or go after donors of the organization that produced it.  Most, if not all, political ads have inaccuracies, half-truths, and blatant lies.  It’s up to us, the voter, to dig through the spin and find the truth.

I would also like to point out that McCain is not pursuing the same legal tactics that Obama is.  Even though he too has the support of Factcheck.org.

Factcheck.org recently posted about how Obama’s ad on a Pennsylvania plant is false, or how about an Obama ad that misled voters on McCain and health care deregulation, Obama lying about McCain’s social security plan, and scaring seniors by lying and saying McCain would cut their benefits in half.  Hell, Palin could also use Obama’s tactics (according to his logic) and legally go after a greenie group for misleading people on shooting wolves.

All of those stories and more are from Factcheck.org.  Yet only Obama chose to go after American citizens who are exercising their First Amendment right to free speech.  McCain has allowed them to exercise that right … even though it involves lying about him.  Why?  Because there is nothing illegal about it.  Obama doesn’t care that it isn’t illegal, and apparently he has found some justice officials who don’t care either.

There is only one candidate using tactics that simulate gestapo behavior (minus the murder of course).  There is only one candidate who doesn’t believe you have the right to free speech.  There is only one candidate who is willing to break the law, and find government officials to help, in order to censor you.  That candidate is Obama … not McCain.  That should scare you.

Human Towels

Posted by Casey on September 27, 2008

So, I’ve been Stumbling again.  You fellow Stumblers know what that means.

I ran across a video about human towels, and a secret camera to record how people would dry their hands on a human body if they thought no one was watching.  Good stuff.

Did Anyone Else Notice That Obama Had Spittle On His Lip During The Debate?

Posted by Casey on September 27, 2008

Literally … I’m not joking. In the last half hour of the debate he started to get white spittle on his bottom lip that would string after sticking to his top lip as he talked. I’m looking for the video now, but it was disgusting. I know it’s not really relevant, but it was sick nasty.

Anti-McCain Ad To Focus On Incest

Posted by Casey on September 26, 2008

Welcome GatewayPundit, LGF, Freepers and other readers.  The response to this post has been stellar.  I’ve been moderating a debate today, and hadn’t look at the site until now.  You guys have been awesome.

This is a Needs of the Many exclusive. If you see this post anywhere else it is because they are citing my work (which is great, and encouraged), or they are stealing my work. Please report back if you see this post anywhere else without a link back to my site.  I’ve been having a problem with theft of my posts … thank you.

Fax of job for anti-McCain incest ad.

Fax of job for anti-McCain incest ad.

A few days ago I was listening to the radio, and heard that there was an ad looking for actors from a talent agency that wanted a girl for an anti-McCain/pro-Obama commercial. Not a big deal, right? I didn’t think so either until the host of the show I was listening to read the contents of the job opportunity. This is a new low for the campaign. Click the picture above to read the job opportunity, and the “motivation” the actor should have for the part.

Casey refers to Casey Hendrickson on KXNT. I was listening to his show when he announced that he was sent this from another listener. I sent him an email, and asked if I could have the ad … this is what he sent me. He said he blacked out some usernames, and email addresses to protect privacy.

Notice the project name is “Anti Palin/McCain Political Ad” … they didn’t even have the ticket right. The actress will also not be paid for her work. Instead she will get a DVD of her commercial for her portfolio. It’s called TFDVD (time for DVD), and it is common in the modeling world if you are a model trying to get noticed.

The actress should be 15-19, and “break your heart” without saying a word. Her role is that of a victim of incest or rape who is now pregnant, and “forced to keep her child b/c Roe v. Wade overturned means no exception for rape or incest.”

LOL … wow! Talk about fear-mongering. There are so many problems with this ad, but that’s common with liberal advertisements.

The president, should McCain win, has no authority to overturn Roe v. Wade. Certainly, the vice president has no such authority. Yet Palin is getting top billing for this job. The president’s only authority in the matter is to appoint judges to the Supreme Court. Any judge appointed to the Supreme Court by the president must be approved by the Senate using “advise and consent.” So if McCain appoints a judge to the Supreme Court who is interested in reversing Roe v. Wade … they will have to be approved by the Senate first, and with a 2/3 majority. McCain has also made it clear that he will not have a litmus test on abortion for judges he’d appoint.

I’m also unaware of any proposed change to Roe v. Wade that removes the abortion option in cases of incest or rape. I could be wrong, but every proposal I can think of off the top of my head would allow abortion in the case of incest, rape or the health of the mother. In fact, McCain has made it clear that he supports abortion in cases of rape or incest. It’s a stance he’s always had. So attacking him on it is literally a lie.

This is what he told the NY Times on his incest/rape abortion stance in his previous run for president.

McCain was asked whether he would reinstate the Reagan era rule that prevents international family planning clinics that receive federal funds from discussing abortion. “I don’t believe they should advocate abortion with my tax dollars,” McCain said, adding that he opposed abortion except in cases of rape and incest. He was then asked how he would determine whether someone had in fact been raped. McCain responded, “I think that I would give the benefit of the doubt to the person who alleges that.”

New York Times, p. A17 Jan 25, 2000

McCain also has a long history of supporting changing the culture of abortion in the US rather than just pulling Roe v. Wade. Although he has repeatedly stated that Roe v. Wade was a mistake. He’s right there. Factually, Roe v. Wade was a mistake because it was an illegal ruling by the Supreme Court who was stepping WAY out of their legal power.

So, literally the ad has nothing on McCain at all.

Palin has a more strict pro-life stance than McCain, and the ad will likely be catering to the anti-Palin crowd. Palin opposes abortion in all cases except the health of the mother. However, the attempts to paint her as cruel are unfounded. The ad we are discussing also blows it here as well.

The ad says that the girl was “forced to keep her child” because Roe v. Wade was overturned. That’s also a blatant lie. No one would be forced to keep the child. There is always adoption.  So even if the most strict restrictions are placed upon abortion, no matter how unlikely, there will always be adoption to a loving home.  Palin doesn’t believe the child should be punished for the actions of the parents.

No doubt the ad will certainly anger a large segment of the population that is so far beyond ignorant that we don’t have a word for them yet, but it doesn’t change the fact that the ad is full of conjecture based on lies. I hope the Dems are not stupid enough to run the ad in Nebraska. It’s actually legal to abandon your kids there, and a guy just got rid of nine of them.

What Questions Should I Ask At A Debate?

Posted by Casey on September 25, 2008

I’ve been asked to moderate a debate between two rival political groups on a college campus.  There are 3 topics to be addressed, and I would like your input on what questions to ask the debaters.  The 3 topics are:

  1. Energy
  2. Economy
  3. Foreign Policy

I already have several questions I will look to ask, but you never know what great things other people will come up with.  That’s why I’m asking you all to help me out.  In the comments below, leave your questions that you’d like asked in such a forum as a debate.

Please remember, this is not a lecture or a stage for pontification.  These two groups are debating on those 3 topics only.  Therefore, the questions you ask should be in question format.  If you have any links for source information … that would be helpful.  Thanks in advance for all your help.

5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

Posted by Casey on September 23, 2008

Take the poll at the bottom of this post, or the top left of the sidebar …

An 11 year old 5th grader was suspended for wearing the shirt pictured above to school. 

MyFox Colorado | 5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

An 11-year-old in Aurora says his first amendment rights are being trampled after he was suspended for wearing a homemade shirt that reads “Obama is a terrorist’s best friend.”

The fifth grader at Aurora Frontier K-8 School wore it on a day when students were asked to wear red, white and blue to show their patriotism.

According the the boy’s father, the school district told the student, Daxx Dalton, that he had the choice of changing his shirt, turning his shirt inside out or being suspended.

The best part is that the school’s only response to the press was that they respect a student’s right to free speech.

Aurora Public Schools would not talk about the case but said the district “Respects a student’s right to free speech, such as the right to wear specific clothing,” but administrators say they review any situation that interrupts the learning environment.

So are we to believe the boy interrupted the learning environment?  How?

So, What’s In The Democrat’s Secret $500 Billion Spending Bill?

Posted by Casey on September 23, 2008

Some good, some bad … as usual.

Pentagon budget, disaster aid set to advance

Details of the emerging legislation remain secret, but its outlines
have come out in interviews with aides to both the House and Senate
Appropriations committees, as well as aides to top House and Senate
leaders.

The legislation is coming together in a remarkably secretive process
in which decisions are concentrated in the hands of just a few
lawmakers such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid and House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey,
D-Wis.

The unusual process means thousands of lawmakers’ pet projects of
the very sort blasted by GOP presidential nominee John McCain on the
campaign trail would escape scrutiny, including up to $5 billion worth
of such “earmarks” in the defense budget alone.

Congressional leaders hope to pass the budget legislation this week,
but several issues remained undecided Monday. For starters, it wasn’t
clear how much the White House would be willing to accept.

Catch that?  This is a neat little way to inflate government even more by hiding pork.

While top-level congressional leaders haven’t made final decisions,
elements of the year-end budget package are likely to include:

_Stopgap government funding. Most federal agencies would see their
budgets frozen at current levels for several weeks or even into March.
Lawmakers want to avoid a postelection “lame duck” session, but fear
the White House will force them to return to session in November in
hopes Congress would approve a free trade pact with Colombia.

_Security-related budgets. More than $600 billion to fund the 2009
budgets for the Pentagon, Homeland Security Department and the
Department of Veterans Affairs.

_Disaster aid. Up to $25 billion in emergency funding for victims of
Gulf Coast hurricanes, midwestern floods and other natural disasters.

_Automaker loans. More than $7 billion is provided to subsidize $25
billion in loans to help the “Big Three” U.S. automakers retool their
plants to build cleaner, more energy efficient cars.

_Heating subsidies. Democrats want to double the budget to $5.1
billion for a popular program providing heating subsidies for the poor.

Democrats were also weighing whether to try to add another extension
of unemployment benefits to the year-end budget package. Another option
would be to add the unemployment insurance coverage to a subsequent $50
billion-plus measure to stimulate the economy with infrastructure
spending, aid to states and additional food stamp benefits.

[Sigh] … Oi vai.

New York Times Gets Pwned By McCain Campaign … BAD ASS!

Posted by Casey on September 22, 2008

H/T Redstate
Uber domination has been unleashed upon the NY Times. After the first round KO of the Times … they are trying their best to regain consciousness, and stammer back to their feet.

Stellar folks … stellar!

clipped from www.redstate.com

On a conference call about the latest McCain ad,
called "Chicago Machine" and featuring information on Barack
Obama's ties to convicted felon Tony Rezko, William Daley, corrupt
State Senate resignee (and former Obama mentor) Emil Jones (D), and
constantly-under-investigation Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D),
McCain campaign manager Rick Davis and strategist Steve Schmidt
were asked about the NYT article, which attempted to link McCain to
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac due to Davis having taken on
communication work for the lending giants earlier this decade.
(Interestingly enough, the "Newspaper of Record" apparently didn't
find the information that Barack Obama has received the
second-highest dollar amount of donations associated with Fannie
and Freddie of any member of the U.S. Senate save for Sen. Chris
Dodd (D-CT), the chairman of the committee responsible for
regulating the lenders
to be news that was "fit to print").

Schmidt responded by taking aim at the New York Times
and opening fire, saying:


Let me first say we are First Amendment absolutists on this
campaign. The press and anybody who wishes to cover this race from
a blogosphere perspective or from a media perspective is of course
constitutionally protected with regard to writing whatever they
want to write.

But let's be clear and be honest with each other about something
fundamental to this race, which is this: Whatever the New York
Times once was, it is today not by an standard a journalistic
organization.

It is a pro-Obama advocacy organization that every day
attacks the McCain campaign, attacks Sen. McCain, attacks Gov.
Palin, and excuses Sen. Obama
.

Violence In Iraq Still Down During Ramadan

Posted by Casey on September 22, 2008

Good thing McCain was right about the surge.
clipped from www.defenselink.mil
Army Lt. Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, Multinational Corps Iraq commander, spoke to Pentagon reporters via teleconference from his headquarters in Baghdad.

Austin charted the continued progress in Iraq. “We’ve experienced continued low levels of violence, with 15 of the last 16 weeks remaining below the 200-attacks-per-week mark,” he said. “In Baghdad, … we’ve averaged less than four attacks per day for the last 13 weeks.”

He said this level of violence would have been unthinkable a year ago. Anbar province – once the home of al-Qaida in Iraq – transferred to Iraqi provincial control, and the trends of violence continue down, the general told reporters.

It’s notable that the decrease has continued during Ramadan, Austin said. “We did see a small spike in attacks over the weekend,” he acknowledged, “but I can tell you that even with the spike, we are well below what we saw last year and the year before that.”
