Who Sarah Palin Really Is

Thanks to Eric Dondero for posting a piece of mine at his site:
http://www.mainstreamlibertarian.com

That must have been one amazing trip from Anchorage to Dayton. You leave good old "Northern Expousre" and, fly five hours with a baby (Trig) and a 7-year-old (Piper), and then when you land, the Secret Service is there to protect you. Only in America.

At 2 a.m. Friday, when Sharon in OK told me what was going on, it seemed like a dream, even an out-of-body experience.As you'll be hearing, Sarah became Govenor by defeating former Senator and then-Governor Frank Murkowski, in the primary. She then took on Democrat Tony Knowles, a former Governor, and beat him badly.

She started to get endorsements for V-P from: Les Kinsolving of WorldNetDaily, Fred Barnes of FOX, William Kristol of the The Weekly Standard, and from Jack Kelly in RealClear Politics. Bogger Emily Zanotti also gave an important endorsement..

Cindy Reidhead of our NoBama Blogger Group wrote an important piece called "Why Not New Mommy Palin for V-P?" Then, Lawrence Kudlow on CNBC endorsed her. She and McCain apparently had one or more secret meetings. Then, McCain's vetter Arthtur Culvahouse was spotted in Anchorage. Sarah said innocently that she had merely "sent some paperwork" to Washington, DC.

The Palins are NOT well-off, unlike almost anybody else that's run for Presdient or V-P in modern times. They are one of the first truly middle-class families to be in this position.

Trig Palin, the baby: Sarah was delivering a keynote speech in Texas, and she started to go into early labor. She finished the speech. Then, she hopped on a plane to get back to Alaska. She made it barely and give birth to her son in Anchorage.

After Trig was born, she issued a press release that began, "God has blessed us . . ." She doesn't mention "God" much or really talk about her religious faith, but the God has blessed us remark is who the Palins are.

She and her husband seem to believe intensely that things happen in life for a reason, although sometimes we're darned if we can figure out what it is. She and Todd had Trig because that was in fact their choice. It was a choice informed by their beliefs regarding what life is all about.

One reason libertarians like her so much is that, in the Alaskan way, she believes strongly in providing people the liberty to make their own choices and conduct their own lifestyles. It's certainly not her style to go around berating people who disagree with her.

Yeah, she is SuperMom, but she has a tremendous support system from her husband, her parents, her sister, her husband's family, and her older children. Like many Alaskans, she and her husband go fishing. How else are you supposed to have enough fish for the winter? Like most Alaskans, she loves hunting.

Guns are not an issue in Alaska. Heck, they're not an issue in PA either. Everybody has one (except me).

She has made statements (you'll see them soon) about life and the purpose of life that are profound. She believes that politicians who go along to get along and cut moral corners are in violation of any sound ethical code. [More about that tomorrow]

She has been to Kuwait to visit soldiers there, and she's in charge of the Alaska National Guard. She's an expert on energy and a strong proponent of drilling in ANWR.

Unlike almost any other political figure, she sees American military life from the perspective of a soldier's mom.

Sarah Palin Story Broke Here

"Biden is a windbag. Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air."

"On the Palin story, the media dropped the ball."

If you want to read an absolute knock-out piece about the woman they called "Sarah Barracuda" in her days as a state championship basketball player, check the following on Gov. Palin:


HOW I BROKE THE SARAH PLAIN CHOICE STORY
I had a short post up at 2:30 a.m. that said I had information (from Sharon and one other) that Gov. Palin and her two teen-age daughters and perhaps others had flown from Anchorage to Dayton, where she would be named today McCain's running mate. To my relief and joy, it happened exactly that way in Dayton.

Sarah Palin reads this blog regularly. I used to get hits from her home town and the state capital of Juneau when she was there. When her son graduated from infantry training school at Ft. Benning, GA with Sarah and Todd present, I got my first hit from . . . Ft. Benning. You're always welcome Sarah!

Bookmark this site and return often! You're always welcome -- even if your name isn't . . . Sarah Palin.


The Palin-choice story came from people who put two-and-two together, and the media was still falling all over itself at 11 a.m. this morning. Charles Krauthammer said at 11 that McCain should choose Fred Thompson. Good God!

At that point, I said to my wife we already had enough old white guys (Biden, McCain) and we needed a woman, preferably Sarah . I went to sleep believing it was Sarah and woke up to her picture on the screen on FOX (and others?). I never bought the Campaign's decoy statement that, well everybody on the list was flying in (Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, the Easter Bunny, Peter Rabbit)

The national media -- a bunch of lazy oafs -- was mad because nobody told them first. Charles Cameron of FOX was the only one early this a.m. who did a process of elimination and came up with Sarah.

Then, the other people at FOX and CNN (and the idiots at MSNBC) dropped the ball. They thought it couldn't be Sarah because she wasn't on their list . . . and so how could he dare to nominate this (wonderful) woman they knew nothing about. Amazing.

When she gave the speech -- she had given others the media had ignored -- everyone else in the world knew immediately "how" McCain could select her. With the speech and that amazing family -- the working-class husband, the beautiful, unintimidated children -- Sarah blew everyone out of the water.

"Gee, where's she been?" Good question. Sometimes the very best things are right in front of us. She is Barack Obama's worst nightmare. She is an ethical person. She is extremely tough physically, psychologically, and spiritually.

She will beat Biden up very badly. He's a windbag, and she's a breath of fresh air.

Hero McCain Picks Heroine Palin

Gov. Sarah Palin with husband Todd and daughters Piper, Willow, and Bristol. In the past three months I've had nearly 8,000 "hits" on this site. Today, I will go over 10,000 -- in one day! Thanks to visitors. Keep returning, and you'll have the most relevant information about Sarah, who's a regular reader of my blogs. God bless you, Sarah! Much more to follow.

My political buddy Sharon Caliendo of Norman, OK, broke the Palin Story last night shortly before 3 a.m., and I took a chance on put it on my blogs then. Much more will be on here today and tomorrow about a thoroughly remarkable human being, Sarah Heath Palin.

If you want to have fun, go over to a truly ecstatic web site, Adam Brickley's at http://draftpalinforvp.blogspot.com. Adam has been in total managerial charge of the national Draft Palin for VP effort. Adam just turned 21 (!!!!!!!!!!!).

I'm so delighted that some (all?) of Sarah's children are able to participate in this historic moment. Piper (age 7 now?) is going to become a national media darling. I believe Sarah will make a great vice-president. I also believe she will make a great President of the United States. In my somewhat hyperbolic way, I called her "Mt. Rushmore Material." (But I don't think that's really hyperbole.)
Jack Kelly, national security analyst and columnist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Toledo Blade -- and a great buddy -- wrote the following piece about Gov. Sarah Heath Palin. Jack paid me the compliment of being the one who recommended Sarah to him. God bless the USA. If you want to have fun, go to http://palinforvp.blogspot.com and you will see the first case of Blog Ecstasy in recorded history.
"Who? When?
Republicans including, I imagine, Sen. McCain himself are asking these questions about his selection of a vice presidential candidate.Ideally, a presidential candidate wants a running mate who will help him or her win the election, and (maybe) to govern afterwards. But most will settle for a veep who isn't a drag on the ticket, as Dan Quayle was for the first President Bush.
Traditionally, a presidential nominee has chosen a running mate to balance the ticket
geographically, or to appease a faction of the party. The most successful example of this was when John F. Kennedy picked Lyndon Johnson, though neither liked the other, and LBJ joined the ticket only because he thought Kennedy would lose.Bill Clinton broke with this tradition when he chose another young (purported) moderate from a neighboring southern state. By picking Al Gore, he hoped to reinforce his campaign theme of generational change.
Which way will Sen. McCain go?
The potential running mates most often discussed have downsides nearly as great as their upsides. Gov. Tim Pawlenty helps only in Minnesota, and not enough, according to current polls, to make a difference there. Sen. McCain's friend Sen. Joe Lieberman would bring in some moderate Democrats, but could further antagonize conservatives already suspicious of Sen. McCain. Gov. Romney would have little appeal to working class whites unhappy with Sen. Obama, and evangelicals fret about that Mormon thing. A Huckabee nomination would irritate economic and foreign policy conservatives as much as it would please evangelicals.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a rising star. But he's only 36, and he's been governor for less than a year.There is one potential running mate who has virtually no down side. Those conservatives who've heard of her were delighted to learn that McCain advance man Arthur Culvahouse was in Alaska recently, because they surmised he could only be there to discuss the vice presidential nomination with Gov. Sarah Palin.
At 44, Sarah Louise Heath Palin is both the youngest and the first female governor in Alaska's relatively brief history as a state. She's also the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating that has bounced around 90 percent.
This is due partly to her personal qualities. When she was leading her underdog Wasilla high school basketball team to the state championship in 1982, her teammates called her "Sarah Barracuda" because of her fierce competitiveness.Two years later, when she won the "Miss Wasilla" beauty pageant, she was also voted "Miss Congeniality" by the other contestants.Sarah Barracuda. Miss Congeniality.
Fire and nice.
A happily married mother of five who is still drop dead gorgeous. And smart to boot.But it's mostly because she's been a crackerjack governor, a strong fiscal conservative and a ferocious fighter of corruption, especially in her own party.Ms. Palin touches other conservative bases, some of which Sen. McCain has been accused of rounding.
Track, her eldest son, enlisted in the Army last Sept. 11. She's a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association who hunts, fishes and runs marathons. A regular churchgoer, she's staunchly pro-life. Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal said Sen. McCain should run against a corrupt, do-nothing Congress, a la Harry Truman.
If he should choose to do so, Gov. Palin would make an excellent partner "The landscape is littered with the bodies of those who have crossed Sarah," pollster Dave Dittman told the Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes.
Sen. Barack Obama's support has plunged recently among white women. Many Hillary Clinton supporters accuse him -- I think unfairly -- of being sexist. Having Sarah Palin on the ticket could help Sen. McCain appeal to these disgruntled Democrats.Running mates usually aren't named until the convention.
But if Sen. McCain should name Gov. Palin earlier, it would give America more time to get to know this extraordinary woman. And because she's at least a dozen feature stories waiting to be written, she could help him dominate the news between now and the conventions.Another reason for selecting Sarah Palin early would be to force Barack Obama to make a mistake.
He'd have to rule out choosing someone like Virginia Sen. Jim Webb as his running mate, for fear of exacerbating charges of sexism. And if he chose a woman other than Hillary, the impression Democrats are wimpy would be intensified.

Sarah Palin McCain's V-P Choice?

I'm getting word from Republican operatives in OK and FL that Gov. Sarah Heath Palin's charter plane from Alaska has just landed in Dayton, Ohio. That almost certainly would indicate she is John McCain's choice for V-P. If that is the case, much more about Sarah tomorrow. Sarah Palin is the mother of five, including an infant son, Trig, who was born with Down Syndrome. Her oldest son, Track, is an infantryman headed soon to Iraq or Afghanistan. This story comes from a woman I'd trust with my life.

BULLETIN: HELPING JOHN MCCAIN WIN

In the "NoBama" effort, we are getting a tremendous number of requests (thousands!) from people, especially disaffected Democrats, who want to help John McCain -- and need to know what to do next.

Bloggers should consider reprinting this on their own sites. I'm asking everyone to join Clintons4McCain, NoBama Mission, and RealDemocratsUSA (all pro-McCain). If they want, people should e-mail me (at TalkTop65@aol.com ), and I promise to provide specific information within 24 hours of whom to contact and what to do. Please provide your state and the nearest city. You are very much wanted and appreciated.

Also helpful: on http://johnmccain.com, there is a link for volunteers in the Citizens for McCain effort. Kathy Morrison's sites are very useful, including: http://purplepeoplevote.blogspot.com and http://mccainbloggerresources.blogspot.com. If you're a blogger and want to join NoBama Mission Bloggers (and get USEFUL material on blog tactics), e-mail me at: TalkTop65@aol.com.

If you e-mail, I will get back to you within a reasonable period of time.

In the meantime, the best thing you can do is to write e-mails to friends, family, and associates. Communicate your support for Sen. John McCain. You don't have to give a lot of reasons for your backing McCain -- one or two will do. Let them know they're not alone.

You might emphasize McCain's experience and, if you were a Hillary backer, highlight Mrs. Clinton's statement that she and McCain had "a lifetime of experience" and BHO had only "a speech he delivered in 2002." You can also use President Clinton's statement that John McCain "has given everything he could to his country -- except his life."

Frankly, John McCain is an authentic American hero -- and Barack Obama is a classic Chicago politician. 'Nough said.

If you want hard-hitting material on the election, keep visting this site. Also, go to http://talkstraight.org, which is devoted to separating fact from fiction.

We intend to win this election, but we can't do it without your help. Thanks -- and God bless.

PRIEST BEGS HILLARY: "SAY NOBAMA!"

"If JFK gave his Inaugural Address now, with its emphasis on country over party and liberty over dependence, he'd be booed off the stage in Denver."

Hillary Clinton is a closet McCain Supporter. Whom do you really believe she will vote for on November 4? Senator Clinton, a long-time admirer of John McCain, has repeatedly said she believes Senator Obama is not ready for the presidency because he lacks the experience necessary to lead. She said,"In this election we need a nominee who can pass the Commander in Chief test. ... Senator McCain will bring a time of experience to the campaign. I will bring a lifetime of experience and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002. I think that is a significant difference."If you are disgusted by what's happening in Denver -- and you should be -- the best steps you can take are to join Clintons4McCain (whatever your politics) and NoBama Mission, groups dedicated to Obama's defeat. Both groups are now flooded with people saying "NoBama." You'll be among friends. Please copy the above and send it to friends and family. Thanks.

The following was written by my very good friend and fellow Hillary Clinton Supporter Rev. Father V.M. Could you please post his message. He has asked me to send this to you with his deepest Love and appreciation and God's Blessing. [Charles, a good friend a strong Hillary backer, sent this to me. Charles is one of those broken-hearted by Sen. Clinton's recent decisions. Please feel free to use this on your own blog or otherwise disseminate it.]


Hillary...We only have hours left and I know you'll never see this but maybe someone who has some contacts will get this to you. 18,000,000 wonderful supportive Americans helped you and stood by your side night and day. We watched you and cheered for you...when you laughed-we laughed, when you were hurt-we were hurt. We are, Hillary, your supporters who respect and admire you as a person who told us you would NEVER abandon us and now the worst of your enemies beckon you to come to their side. The people who mocked you, bashed you, insulted you, bought off the Media to destroy you etc....yes Hillary, now they call for help...well, we are calling also. True, you are a Democrat but you are an American and represent the people to whom you came to for support...now we ask you to help us...Do not yield to the call of evil but come to your friends...Please Hillary...tell your supporters tonite to vote for McCain and to do what's right. If you are not permitted to ask them to do this then,at the very least, do not ask them to support Obama. His attributes are not in thebest interest of the finest Country in the World. YOU KNOW OBAMA IS BAD FOR OUR COUNTRY..PLEASE, PLEASE HELP US.May the Lord be with you and guide you to make the decision from your heart.

Hillary Supporters Broken-Hearted, Angry

Tracy Karol and Bobbi Ann White [Hillary Supporters now strongly backing McCain], if people like you continue to play a significant role in determining America's future, the country truly will be in good hands.

The critical factor in determining the election is if the "Hillary Supporters now for McCain" keep on growing, as they have been. Then, Obama cannot win the election. McCain'’s use of the "Hillary commercials" and the strong presence of "defrocked" Wisconsin Hillary Delegate Debra Bartoshevich in McCain’s campaign are major positives.

Note: if you go to the Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio program (archived) two Saturdays ago, you'll hear an interview with Debra Bartoshevich and Bev Perlson (founder of TheBand of Mothers. I urge you to listen to these two strong women -- American patriots -- discuss why they're strongly "NoBama." http://www.blogtalkradio.com/clintons4mccain

Hillary, Bill, and Pollster Scott Rasmussen


"I have a lifetime of experience. Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience. Barack Obama has a speech he gave in 2002." I can't imagine that HRC really wants us to ignore everything that was said and done over the last 18 months.

"The Obama played the race card . . . on me." (Bill Clinton)

"Every day since Joe Biden was selected John McCain has picked up a little ground." (Scott RaSmussen, pollster)

"8.8 million more women than men voted in the 2004 election." (FOX News)

McCain's chances in the General Election: It is winnable if we keep reaching out to as many people as possible -- friends, family, political allies, and people now "on-the-fence." I'm tired. We're all tired. We can rest up starting November .
Roger, Charles Say "Hillary, Please Don't!"
The following are e-mails from two broken-hearted Hillary Supporters dismayed at her actions. The first is from Roger, who donated a significant amount of his scarce resources to Hillary's Campaign. He says,

"If Hillary Clinton releases those delegates before the end of the convention, I will consider that as fraud! We know he can not get the nomination without that [release of Hillary delegates] and there was a hidden agenda from the start to just fleece Americans out of their money. I am demanding a full refund for every cent I contributed! I have sent her a letter to that effect. If she announces [her withdrawal] or in anyway releases her delegates, I expect a full refund! I am asking the same of Joe Biden also seeing how he lied to me about Obama. FLAT OUT LIED!
-- Roger . . .


The following e-mail was written by Charles, another staunch Hillary backer. Like so many Hillary backers, he's have a hard time accepting what he sees and hears.

We know you [Hillary] were threatened, but don’t sell us down the river . We worked hard for one year with a vast network of hundreds of thousands of supporters of yours (and satellite groups). We gave money, time, and effort 24/7. Please don’t do what you are about to do [ask your supporters to back Obama].

The second you encourage your supporters to back a person like Obama (the most dishonest, corrupt person in politics)...our group will go through with our plans of working even harder to elect McCain....the Party will not be united. We ask you one more time...PLEASE HILLARY...blind-side the corrupt people who treated you like dirt and either tell your people to vote for McCain or simply walk on and off the stage without saying a word.

Obama will never win, I promise. Please realize that to give your delegates to Obama goes against everything you promised us in the Primaries. Don’t add insult to injury.

Now Obama gives Fla. and Mich. the full vote [at the Convention], knowing it doesn't mean anything since you're going to turn around and give them to him. Surely the people are not that stupid in both states to buy this "generosity" from Obama, a pathological liar.
How about spreading this word and helping me?

Thanks.

Charles

Obama's Information Grab, Embarassing Videos

At videoboard, you can find out how to get great videos of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and various other Democrats during the Primaries. They're the videos and images Obama doesn't want you to see.

Michelle: They can write all the "bring-us-together" speeches they want for Michelle Obama. But she will always be the angry woman in her 40s who "for the first time in [her] adult life [was] proud of [her] country" when her husband began winning presidential primaries. Michelle, please go visit America.

[Note: Scroll down a few paragraphs to see "Obama's Continuing Humiliation of Hillary." Scroll down beyond that to see an e-mail from a heartbroken -- and angry -- Hillary Supporters]

If you want a video widget for your blog, please go to the same site: http://videoboard.gop.com/. There, you can copy and paste the code. Notice the VideoBoard widget on my sidebar. At the web site, you'll find links to many videos.

If you're looking for the shocking new piece on how the Obama campaign has gone after Criti Adkins, co-founder of Clintons4McCain and Nobama Mission, please scroll down to the previous column. It has drawn thousands of visitors, and I appreciate your interest in this story of the Obama Campaign's thuggery. If you want to support Cristi, please join Clintons4McCain and Nobama Mission.

As you may know, the Obama text-messages about the Biden announcement were a scam. They had nothing to do with informing people. They had everything to do with using surreptitious means to grab information -- esssentially to get individual's cell phone numbers. The "announcement" came several hours after the media had broken the news.

Hopefully, millions of people's cell phones will not be awakening them regularly at 3 a.m.

A great place to read about Sen. Obama's major problems telling the truth is: http://talkstraight.com/. It's very worth visiting.




OBAMA'S CONTINUING HUMILIATION OF HILLARY CLINTON

And the humliation of Sen. Clinton continues . . ."Please make sure as many people as possible see the material below. It's new -- and very revealing:

A friend says: I was just reading a post on ( http://no-obama09.com/blog/2008/08/07/screwing-the-pooch-slowly/ ) which included this comment:
Surely it’s not just me, but what is taking so damn long for someone… anyone… to give a straight answer. On Obama’s plane in route to Chicago this morning. The Precious One was asked about Hillary’s name being placed in nomination. His response was weak… to say the least. The written quote given at the NYTimes Political blog, as well as other blogs and so-called-news sites, was not an accurate transcript; it left out a LOT. I’ve taken care of that here, in the interest of accuracy:

Obama Says: “uh ah I uh ah I’m letting our our uh our respective teams work out the details,” Mr. Obama said. “uh ah I I uh ah I don’t think uh we’re looking for catharsis. I think what we are uh looking for is uh energy and excitement uh about the prospects of changing this country, and and uh I think that people who supported a whole range of different candidates during the primaries are going to come out of that uuuuh convention feeling absolutely determined that we’ve got uuh to take the White House back.”

The above quote indicates to me that Obama struggles to give an answer which is what he assumes the questioner wants to hear while trying to word it in a way that avoids actually making any commitment while doing so.

Political games aside, Obama hates the Clintons -- and the feeling is mutual.


Roger Demands a Refund from Hillary
If Hillary Clinton releases those delegates [hers] before the end of the convention, I will consider that as fraud! We know he cannot get the nomination without that, and there was a hidden agenda from the start to just fleece Americans out of their money. I am demanding a full refund for every cent I contributed! I have sent her a letter to that effect. If she announces or in anyway releases her delegates, I expect a full refund! I am asking the same of Joe Biden also, seeing how he lied to me about Obama. FLAT OUT LIED!

Obama's Hillary-Boating Cristi Adkins

Cristi Adkins is mad as hell at Barack Obama, and she isn't going to take it -- his narcissistic, thuggish, dishonest campaign -- anymore. She's mad because Obama-bot have hacked your computers, sent her hate-filled e-mails, and even threatened her life. She refuses to be intimidated.

[On Sunday, I'll reveal "Obama's VP Text-Message Scam." Was Obama really sending out 3 a.m. messages on his Biden choice? Of course not. He was deceiving people with an "information grab," gathering cell phone numbers from individuals he'll contact many times -- perhaps always at 3 a.m.]

Cristi is one of the most effective "Hillary Supporters", a woman who's working 14-hour-days to ensure the defeat on Nov. 4 of the man she calls "Hussein." She calls him that because she believes -- correctly -- that he has only a tangential connection to American values.

His history demonstrates that he's much more at home in Kenya than in mainstream America, which is too "bitter" for his rarified tastes.Obama and his sycophants despise what Cristi, a co-founder of Clintons4McCain and NobamaMission, is doing, and they've responded by initiating a campaign of hatred and innuendo against her.

Cristi is a mom (two teenagers and a three-year-old), a wife, a veteran (former MP), and a nurse. The father of her two teenagers just came home from a combat tour in Afghanistan. In short, she's the kind of American with whom Obama and his fellow elitists have nothing in common.

Why does she bug Obama so much? Mainly because she's frequent guest on shows hosted by people by Neil Cavuto, Sean Hannity, Jim Bohannon. She's even been on the "Daily Show." Right now, she's headed to Denver to "Just Say No Deal" to Barack H. Obama. She's a force in contemporary politics.

For that reason, she's been the target of absurd attacks by bloggers who serve as cheerleaders for BHO. Many of the people reading this blog. Were you aware that Obama PAYS his bloggers? Most of them get roughly $7 an hour, and some apparently receive much more. That would come as news to people who visit their sites and believe they're getting something approximating "straight talk." In fact, those bloggers are presenting all the "news" that fits with the Obama agenda.

In our own NoBama Mission Bloggers, a brainchild of Cristi Adkins and others in the NoBama Mission effort, we will have 200 blogs by the end of this day. How many of them are paid by anyone? A grand total of zero. They are all volunteers -- just like me, just like Cristi, just like the other tens of thousand of people who center their lives around the NoBama effort.

One thing Cristi is asked is why she works with non-Democrats. Well, DUH! She founded Clintons4McCain. She didn't found Clintons4Nobody, or Clintons4theheckuvait. If you're against Obama with us, you're among friends.The NoBama effort is perhaps the most diverse coalition in American history.

It consists of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and even a stray Libertarian or two. In that effort, there are liberals, moderates, and conservatives. There are no far-left crazies or America-haters, unlike Obama's own scary group.What binds our people of so many different views together is a commitment to the following statement: "Barack Obama is too inexperienced, too unqualified, too untrustworthy, and too dangerous to be POTUS."

Anyone who shares that view is welcome in our coalition.The hate campaign by Obama, his staffers, and his bought-and-paid for bloggers against Cristi is similar to the effort they waged against Hillary Clinton. Of course, she has been one of the more liberal members of the Clinton Administration and the U.S. Senate.

Many Black members of Congress backed her bid for the presidency. Those who did so are now being punished by Obama at the Democratic National Convention. Charlie Rangel, one of the most important members of the House and a Clinton backer, has NOT been invited to speak.

For her efforts on behalf of civil rights and liberal causes, Hillary Clinton was branded by Obama and his surrogates as a warmonger, a liar, and a racist. Geraldine Ferraro, also a long-time proponent of civil rights, was also labeled a racist, as was President Bill Clinton.

Given this background by Obama and his minions, it's no surprise that Cristi Adkins is under attack. Of course, she isn't being defamed for her statements about Obama, all of which are factual. Instead, they're trying to bleed her to death with a thousand pinpricks. She's accused of saying this (maybe) once, or of knowing this person or someone else, or of advocating this-or-that.

Does Cristi head right to the front-lines, where the chances of taking political shrapnel are the greatest? If you've ever seen her in action, you know she does. Also, she "pushs the envelope." She takes after "Hussein" in creative, imaginative ways. Most of these efforts work, and some don't, which is par for the course with risk-takers.

The main "charge" against Cristi is that she once was in a business venture that didn't work out. Big deal. There are probably 150 million Americans, including this one, who are in the same boat.

In fact, Cristi -- my friend and political ally -- is one of the single most effective spokeswomen in America against Obama. As long as that remains the case -- and it will through November 4 -- Obama and his meanspirited, robotic followers will try to destroy her.

In other words, they will try to "Hillary-boat" her, just as they did the junior Senator from New York.I have news for the man Cristi calls "Hussein." You will not succeed. You will not win this election. You are up against people who will not rest until John McCain send you back to the Chicago political machine that spawned you.

What can the readers of this piece do in support of Cristi Adkins, American? You can go to Clintons4McCain and NoBama Mission and sign up as members of those organizations. Many thousands of people have already done. Please do it for Cristi -- and do it for America. Now.

Note: Below is the link to the Jim Bohannen show on which Cristi Adkins appeared. It's very much worth listening to.

Democrats: Horror Stories, Intimidation, Anger

I've been printing one e-mail after another from Democrats who are disgusted with the fraud, sexism, and left-wing idiocy of their former political "home." In fact, the Democratic Party has become the haven for the corrupt, the socialistic, and the unpatriotic. That has been happening for years, of course, but Democrats are starting to notice, and the implications for the Party are not good.

Here's how Latonia, a Hillary Supporter, puts it:

"I don't understand why Republicans aren't trying to figure out how to come together and beat nobama. It seems that both parties have serious flaws. As soon as this election is over - I am going Independent - no party loyalties for me."

Also, consider the following messages from two long-time Democrats, both arden feminists. They're none too happy with Howard Dean, Donna Brazille, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and the Party's other "worthies." How is this showing up in the real world of politics? You can see the results in today's Zogby Poll, which I discuss on another blog.

Here's what Frances said in response to a friend who told her Hillary was caving in to the demands of King Barack:

"Your message suggests that "the fix is in." Why else would Obama go from 'We don't need catharsis' to a rapidly suspicious turn around--welcoming HRC's name being placed on the First Ballot at Convention, as if he had thought of it? By [Hillary's[ actively campaigning for him I can't help but consider her an abused woman standing by 'the man' after he bloodied her nose and blacked her eyes. If her arm has been twisted to make the motion to nominate BHO by acclamation, I will never vote Democratic again.

Frances adds: "[Hillary] may be a long suffering, loyalist Democrat, giving in to the bully boys. I am not. I will not, and I her 18 million Democrats will not vote by acclamation. The stolen delegates are like zombie stalkers and will haunt the party for decades to come. Her campaign was not out-organized. It was out-defrauded."

Frances' friend Ann, another former solid Democrat, responded this way: "Frances, you go girl. More than 18 million Dems and many more Independents (& all the Republicans) know you speak the truth."

It's important to know that it's not only Democratic women who are angry at what they increasingly see as their former Party. Consider the following e-mail I received from Fred B., a Democrat in north-central PA:

"Hi. My name is Fred B., and I'ms from [north central] Pa. I want to get involved in the campaign for McCain, and was wondering who I would have to talk to. I'm a Democrat and have worked previously for Democrats. That doesn't matter does it? Let me know what I can do."

I told him his Party affiliation didn't matter -- and it doesn't. Increasingly, I'm getting e-mails from across the country sent by people like Fred. They are the keys to McCain's good performance in the polls. It's critical that Republicans and Independents greet such people with open arms.

My friends, we are building a mighty coalition. Increasingly, there is a scent in the air that smells like victory!

A Democrat Who's Had Enough

[Scroll down to see the letter from Rebekah, a lifelong Democrat and Hillary Supporter who has left the Party. The following e-mail is from Pam in New Jersey, who's also exited the Democratic Party. Also visit my Pennsylvania site for similar correspondence.]

You have done your job well. I don't know what to think of some of these people. Things change and I think the Democratic party has changed and is GONE. Get on with life and see where the Republican party will take you. I need structure, I need someone who knows what he is doing and not fidgeting in the dark.

You are right. This election is going to separate the boys from the men the girls from the women. What do you really want for you and your familes lives? I want what our forefathers wrote down in the constitution and BO has done everything but re-write the constitution and that is NOT GOING TO BE DONE ON MY WATCH.

I do understand your fatigue and you have been a good warrior. I will go into the hospital Tuesday for knee replacement and then be home until labor day. I will be going back to work then.

Things have to change on these boards after the convention. People have to get up and do and stay behind to suffer what BO can do.

I think of your often and praise all you have done in the name of your country. Stay calm, cool and collected. You have done a lot for McCain and he rewarded you well last night. He made a wonderful showing. I think the Republican party will be changing also for the good of the people with McCain...You have done a proud job for the party and your country. My hat is off to you sir. You take care and stay well.


Rebekah writes:

I will be water boarded before I vote for Obama. After what the DNC disenfranchised their own party members. I will be an independent after the convention. I will no longer be a Democrat. I am tired of the McGovern, Dukakis, Mondale and Kerry selections. Also, that human piece of garbage Jimmy Carter, who did a lousy job. We are not a Parliamentary system. Has anyone thought of why Obama wrote an autobiography at 29 years old. I thought only people who were terminally ill wrote an autobiography before 30. Barry is going down this November.

More letters from Democrats who've had enuogh are on my Pennsylvania site. Please visit.

Can Hillary Get Dem Nomination?

Short answer: "NO!"

Some of the people I work with in the NoBama Movement assure me that "Super Delegates are moving toward Hillary" and "she still has a chance, blah, blah, blah." I ask them if any of the (imaginary) SDs have a name or are located in specific states. So far, I have not received one name. That's because there are no such SDs.

In fact, the opposite is happening, and I give names of former Hillary Supporters (like Evan Bayh and Ed Rendell) who are now "strongly" supporting Obama. The most-disliked people in the world are those, perhaps including yours truly, who tell the truth and in so doing, puncture people's illusions. As one poet put it, "Humankind can not bear very much reality."

I have many friends who are Hillary Supporters, and I always ask them to do what their hearts and heads tell them. At the same time, I believe valuable time is being lost with the misguided focus on "Denver." In fact, Denver is going to be a disaster for Hillary Supporters -- and, more to the point, for America.

As I put it recently, there are "911 people in America who believe Hillary can get the nomination, and I am on a first-name basis with all of them. Unfortunately, one of those 911 people is NOT named Hillary Clinton."

My Comments on the Much-Maligned George W. Bush
On Russia's obscene, thuggish invasion of Georgia: To this point, George W. Bush has done and said everything right -- along with the remarkable Condi Rice. The Democrats, including Barack Obama, have offered no insights or suggestions.
Instead, as usual, they sit and wait for something to go wrong so they can blame the ever-useful scapegoat GWB. At his best, GWB is leading a country called the United States of America. At their worst (their "default position"), his political opponents are preserving their "options," the better to protect their "careers" in government. To them, the concept of "country" is no more than a bloodless abstraction.
For all his deficiencies, GWB loves his country. I have seen no evidence that Obama loves his, whichever it might be. Historians, rather than pollsters, judge presidencies.
The first President I really remember was Harry S. Truman. He was in an endless war (Korea) where some 55,000 Americans died. His approval rating was much lower than GWB's.
Now, many students of government see HST as one of our best Presidents -- I certainly do.
In 1952, however, he was an object of widespread scorn.
There's an important new book by Prof. Lawrence Freedman, a British subject, on what we've come to know as "The War on Terrorism." He points out that Presidents like FDR and HST faced a dangerous world, but one in which the issues (and the enemy) were much clearer. In our world, it's not that way.
How will history judge GWB? Relatedly, how will it judge Bill Clinton and his own efforts against terrorism? After Nov. 5, I'll give my own unvarnished views on the two men and their respective efforts to protect the people of America. We haven't had a terrorist attack since 9/11, and somehow I don't believe any credit should go to Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Reid, and their merry bands of political opportunists.
Obama? Under his presidency I expect many gloom-laden speeches from the Oval Office, but the overall rhetoric will be high-minded. The body count, unfortunately, will be very high, since the folks at al Qaeda, Inc. see him correctly as a lightweight.
Someone once said, "Life is a terrible teacher. First, it gives you the test -- and only then does it teach you the lesson." That has never been more true than during recent times.

Hillary Democrats: Change Parties, Please

"2016: By that time, after eight years of an Obama presidency, America will be lucky if it's still a country."

I sent the material below to Lyn, a wonderful person in the NoBama Movement who was trying to come up with creative ways to influence the "SuperDelegates" (perhaps the most timid and frightened individuals on the planet). The SDs remind me of the character in the Flannery O'Connor short story ("A Good Man is Hard to Find") of whom it was said, "She would have been a good woman -- if someone had a gun to her head 24 hours a day."

Lyn, it was a very good idea (buying Corsi's book and giving to SDs), but I think we're stymied. I want you to know -- and any other people who get this note -- that I care a great deal about everyone in the NoBama Movement. I also want you to know that, like you, conscience and country matter to me about one thousand times more than Party -- any political party. That said . . .

I don't think there is any chance in the world (barring something totally unforeseen) that Barack Obama will not be the nominee of the Democratic Party. I do believe, as an observer, that the Party is broken, and I wonder if it will be fixed anytime soon. I don't say those things to hurt people's feelings; I say them because they're obvious.

I don't blame anyone who follows his or her heart and head, because I do so myself.

Today, a friend sent me an article (and a video) critical of John Kerry, who is a hero to some people (a diminishing number). Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and Gov. Patrick all endorsed Obama even though their state, Massashusetts, went for Hillary by a huge margin. My own Democratic congressman, Jason Altmire, supports Obama although his district went two-to-one for Hillary. My own county voted for Hillary 28,000 to 12,000.

What I ask my friends in the Democratic Party is this: what are YOU going to do about these people (and include Howard Dean, Donna Brazille, and Nancy Pelosi, along with many other colleagues of HRC who turned their backs on ther)? If the answer is nothing, as I fear it may be from too many people, then they have the Party they deserve.

In 2016, the Party will perhaps nominate a Howard Dean-Donna Brazile ticket, and Democrats will be told to take-it-or-leave it. Some Democrats will be wandering around thinking, "Now, should I vote for Dean-Brazile, or should I consider the (shudder, shudder) Republican candidate?"

By that time, America, after eight years of Barack Obama, will be lucky if it's still a country.

In my view, the Party of FDR, Harry S Turman, and JFK has ceased to exist. People need to begin to look elsewhere for their political allegiances. To those who consider Barack H. Obama a suitable candidate for POTUS, they have my wishes for a speedy recovery.

As author O'Connor said, "a good man is hard to find." And Barack Obama isn't that man.

PRO-MILITARY & PRO-AMERICAN HEROINES PERLSON AND BARTOSHEVICH ON CLINTONS FOR MCCAIN BLOG TALK RADIO

[Scroll down to see an urgent message to a "Soldier4Hillary."]

United States of America (Press Release), August 13, 2008

Beverly Perlson and Debra Bartoshevich will join us on Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio at 5 p.m., ET, Saturday, August 16, 2008 to discuss basic American freedoms and responsibilities.

Perlson, from the Chicago, Illinois area, founded The Band of Mothers (http://thebandofmothers.com/), an organization of soldiers’ moms committed “to Step Up, Stand Up and Stick Up For Our Soldiers.”

As a member of the 82d Airborne Division, Perlson’s Bronze-Star-winning son, Sergeant John White, served four tours of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bartoshevich, from the Racine, Wisconsin area, was elected a Hillary Clinton delegate to the Democratic National Convention. When she announced she would vote for John McCain in the General Election, the state Party quickly stripped her of her rights to attend the Convention as a Clinton supporter.

Here’s where and when Perlson and Bartoshevich will appear.

Blog Talk Radio, Clintons 4 McCain August 2, 2008: 5 PM EST http://www.blogtalkradio.com/clintons4mccain
Call-in Number: (347) 633-9273


Perlson and her allied groups – including Gathering of Eagles, Soldiers Guardian Angeles, Vets for Freedom, and Free Republic – regularly confront anti-war legislators, including Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha.

Perlson has clashed memorably with the militant anti-war group CODEPINK. That group has conducted anti-military demonstrations before Congress and at a Berkeley, California Marine recruiting center.

Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK co-founder, has called Perlson and her soldier son “terrorists.” In response, Perlson said, “I have a message for you, Medea. Get out of our country.”

CODEPINK, along with Moveon.org of “General Betray-us” infamy, has been provided major financial backing for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Jodie Evans, a CODEPINK co-founder, has served as “bundler” of Obama’s campaign donations.

Debra Bartoshevich, an emergency room nurse, received national attention for her pro-Clinton, pro-democracy, anti-Obama stance.

After the Democratic Party stripped her of her Convention credentials, she and her 16-year-old daughter met with Sen. John McCain.

He described Bartoshevich as “a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.” He praised her courage in putting conscience and country ahead of Party.

On the radio program, Bartoshevich will discuss intimidation and strong-arm tactics being used by Democratic Party officials against Hillary Supporters.

Perlson will talk about how the political gamesmanship played by far-left members of Congress endangers the lives of soldiers like her son.

Both women will highlight why they’ve become strong members of the NoBama coalition.

Co-hosts on the program will be “NoBama” political activists Steve Maloney, from Pennsylvania, and Anne M. Franklin of Texas.


Urgent Message to a "Soldier4Hillary"

Hi Sgt. Rogers (soldier4hillary) and Others: I think Aug. 30 would be a great time for Rogers to appear on the radio show, right after the Democratic Convention and right before the Republican convention. This Saturday Debra Bartoshevich, the "defrocked" Hillary delegate from Wisconsin, will be on the show with military mom Bev Perlson.

Late-August will be a critical time for Hillary Supporters, many of whom are wondering what their next move should be. As I've said many times, Hillary Supporters are "normal Americans," whereas many Obama Supporters actually detest their own country and yearn for it lose the war in Iraq. It's essential that Hillary Supporters know there are tens of millions of Americans who feel solidarity with them.

The DNC's campaign of intimiation against Hillary Supporters should not go unchallenged. This is our country, and the political Parties should reflect the will of the people who have been supportive of them. They should not be allowed to turn the Parties into enterprises that bully average Americans, tell them how to vote, and generally ignore calls for democratic reform.

My main point is this: Hillary Supporters should know they are NOT alone. And they have every right as Americans to put their conseience and their country above the wishes of political Party bosses.

Who Are Those "Hillary Supporters?"

One of the fascinating elements for me in working with the Hillary Supporters (for months now) is how much they fit into the category of "normal Americans," people who love their country and have a lot in common with their "normal American" Republican counterparts.

I've been impressed by the many Hillary Supporters -- in the millions -- that have disregarded Sen. Clinton's somewhat mystifying guidance that they should support Obama. She can't have meant what she said in the campaign if she now believes Obama is acceptable. Politicians who value Party over Country are out-of-touch with most Americans.

The other key discovery is how psychologically "invested" many people -- especially women -- are in Sen. Clinton. She represented their hopes and dreams, and her defeat came as a catastrophe. What helped me understand this situation was the defeat of my dear friend and political ally Diana Irey in her 2006 race against Cong. Jack Murtha. That one was hard to take.

My view of Sen. Clinton, whom I did not support and disagreed with on every major issue, is much different from that of a lot of people in Clintons4McCain and NoBama Mission. Hillary advocates collective responsibility ("it takes a village") and I believe any collective responsibility will not work unless it's preceded by individual responsibility ("it takes parents"). Frankly, we can't take care of others if we don't first take care (for the most part) of ourselves.

Recently, I've been suggesting (pleading?) with people NOT to hold Sen. Clinton to low standards -- basically, to keep them from rationalizing any questionable action she takes. I keep hearing she is being "forced" (by whom?) to take actions.

If you google "gun to her head," you will find untold thousands of links, all to Hillary Clinton. Where's the "gun?" Who's holding it? If one asks those questions, the responses range from anger to hurt feelings. So, they don't get asked.

Recently, I was criticized by two people (on a mailing that went out to 500 individuals) for bringing up the "Politico" piece on the leaked memos from the Clinton campaign. The two critics said it was "a bunch of men covering their butts," which it was in part. They also thought that questioning Hillary's leadership ("ready on day one") in the chaos that afflicted her campaign was improper, which it was not.

Many new political "stars" -- activists -- have emerged from the Clinton developments. One is Anne Franklin; another is Cristi Adkins (the darling of FOX News); and a third is Jean Avery, the Seattle "mom." There are many others --- and I mean many, not all of them American citizens.

Clinton Campaign Portrays Unamerican Obama

Mark Penn, Obama is "not at his center fundamentally American . . . "

Clinton told to portray Obama as foreign
By 8/10/08 12:47 AM EST

http://politico.com/news/stories/0808/12420.html

Mark Penn, the top campaign strategist for Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign, advised her to portray Barack Obama as having a “limited” connection “to basic American values and culture,” according to a forthcoming article in The Atlantic.

The magazine reports Penn suggested getting much rougher with Obama in a memo on March 30, after her crucial wins in Texas and Ohio: “Does anyone believe that it is possible to win the nomination without, over these next two months, raising all these issues on him? ... Won’t a single tape of [the Reverend Jeremiah] Wright going off on America with Obama sitting there be a game ender?”

Atlantic Senior Editor Joshua Green writes that major decisions during her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination would be put off for weeks until suddenly Clinton “would erupt, driving her staff to panic and misfire.”

Green reports that on a staff conference call in January where Clinton received “little response” or “silence” to several of her suggestions for how to recover from the Iowa loss and do better in New Hampshire, “Clinton began to grow angry, according to a participant’s notes,” Green recounts. “‘This has been a very instructive call, talking to myself,’ she snapped, and hung up.”

The eight-page blockbuster, “The Front-Runner’s Fall,” draws on internal memos, e-mails and meeting notes to reveal what the magazine’s September issue calls “the backstabbing and conflicting strategies that produced an epic meltdown.”

Penn, the presidential campaign’s chief strategist, wrote in a memo to Clinton excerpted in the article: “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”

A key take-away from the article is that Clinton received a lot of accurate advice, including from Penn. He wrote a remarkably prescient memo in March 2007 about the importance of appealing to what he called “the Invisible Americans,” specifically “WOMEN, LOWER AND MIDDLE CLASS VOTERS” — exactly the groups that helped Clinton beat Obama in key states nearly a year later. But no one synthesized and acted on the good advice.

“The anger and toxic obsessions overwhelmed even the most reserved Beltway wise men,” Green writes. “[H]er advisers couldn’t execute strategy; they routinely attacked and undermined each other, and Clinton never forced a resolution. ... [S]he never behaved like a chief executive, and her own staff proved to be her Achilles’ heel.

“What is clear from the internal documents is that Clinton’s loss derived not from any specific decision she made but rather from the preponderance of the many she did not make.”

Geoffrey Garin, a well-known Democratic pollster who helped direct the campaign’s strategy team for Clinton’s presidential campaign during its final two months, wrote in a memo to at least 10 top campaign aides that he wanted to stop “end runs” around communications director Howard Wolfson.

“I don’t mean to be an asshole, but ... changes to important statements and other critical campaign communications simply have to go through Howard,” Garin wrote on April 12. “Howard is the person who is ultimately responsibility for making sure that we deliver our messages the right way, and I hope everyone will support and respect him in that role.”

Robert Barnett, the superlawyer and longtime Clinton adviser, e-mailed about 20 Clinton aides on March 6, with the subject line “STOP IT !!!!”: “This circular firing squad that is occurring is unattractive, unprofessional, unconscionable and unacceptable. ... After this campaign is over, there will be plenty of time to access blame or claim credit.”

Another part of that e-mail was quoted in The New York Times in a June article by Peter Baker and Jim Rutenberg.

Note from Steve: I'll conmment later today (Monday) on this fascinating development.

Barack Obama: Who's Yo Daddy?

Wednesday, August 6, 2008
Who sent Obama? Why has he refused to release these basic documents?

With less than 90 days to go, Team Obama has not yet released the following fairly routine requests for documents. Surely we. the People have the right to know who we are going to entrust with our country before we give him the keys.

1.Certified Copy of original Birth certificateColumbia College records
2.Columbia Thesis paper
3.Certification of Live Birth showing where born
4.Harvard College records
6.Illinois State Senate records
7.Illinois State Senate schedule
8.Law practice client list and billing records/summary
9.Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
10Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
11.Occidental College records
12.Parent's Marriage Certificate
13.Record of baptism
14.Selective Service Registration
15.Trips schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
16.Scholarly articles
17.Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups

And finally, Senator Obama, the People would like to meet your maternal grandmother. Why wont you allow anyone to go near her in Hawaii. She can hardly say something that could be fatal to your run for the President. Can she?

Hillary Clinton Rationalizing Bad Behavior

Note: You can find everything you need to know about starting a blog that will play a role in defeating Barack Obama in November by going to: http://pennsylvaniaforjohnmccain.blogspot.com. The site contains critical information about how you can help defeat Obama.

"If we hold politicians to very low standards, they will live down to them." (My earlier assessment)

By endorsing Obama, Hillary Clinton is leaving many of her strongest supporters distraught. If you scroll down, I reprint a letter to Sen. Clinton from her once-staunch backer, Barbara in California. I'm exasperated by the tendency of some people who admire Sen. Clinton to excuse anything she does, no matter how harmful it may be.

One of my friends in the NoBama Mission Movement recently wrote the following excuse for what Sen. Clinton is being "forced" [sic] to do.

"Hillary is being forced to tell everyone to vote for BO while he is kicking back on vacation in Hawaii!!!"

DailyKos.com and Moveon.org are the dominant forces in the modern Democratic Party. Both of them despise Hilary Rodham Clinton. She knows that, to have a possible future as President, she has to satisfy those despicable groups. Is that the real explanation for the bad decisions she's made lately?

(Elizabeth Edwards posted on Daily Kos her statement about her husband's supposed "honesty" and the supposedly unfair treatment they received from media outlets (few) who were telling the truth about her husband.)

Here's how I responded to my friend who made the 'forced" statement:

As you know I respectfully disagree with you about Sen. Clinton and her recent behavior. No one can "force" her to do anything. She has the same freedom and responsibility as any other American.

If John McCain could not be forced to do unethical things while he was being tortured in a a Communist prison camp, others -- including HRC -- should have the courage to emulate him.

I realize that many Democrats, especially women, have a great deal of psychic energy tied up with the (flawed) candidacy of Sen. Clinton. Unfortunately, they've attempted to turn her into "St. Hillary," the leader who can do no wrong. We've learned lately, unfortunately, that she's not the person many of her supporters thought she was.

Look up on Google the phrase "gun to her head," and you'll find thousands of links. The popular phrase reflects the rationalization that the bad things HRC is doing are the result of pressure from the Democratic poobahs, such as Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, and Barack Obama.

Let's be honest, okay? Sen. Clinton and her husband are extremely wealthy individuals. Her Senate seat in New York is secure -- probably for as long as she lives. In her campaign, she made the point that Sen. Obama is not ready -- and may never be ready -- to be POTUS. Are we now to assume that she meant almost nothing she said about Obama in the primaries? If so, this leaves her with a severely diminished status.

Frankly, the rationalizations for HRC's extremely bad behavior drive me nuts. If she's incapable of real leadership and integrity, why on earth are people continuing not just to support -- and idolize -- her?

Here's the reprint of Babara from California letter to HRC:

The Honorable Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton:

Mrs. Clinton, I am writing this letter to let you know I supported you throughout your campaign. I contributed to your cause when I had only a small amount of funds to offer. I left my daughter at home while I drove 30 miles one way night-after-night to telephone for your cause (our cause). I did this because my 3 year old daughter from China needed to understand that we recognize that women are important.

She needed to know that her life, whatever it may be, is equally as important as any male child and we celebrate that.[During the primaries,] she would run around the house shouting, “Go Hillary! Hillary is for girls!”

[But] I now hear you, the only one who can decide, will not place your request in writing for the Nomination as the Presidential Candidate for the Democratic Party. That is beyond my comprehension.You promised you would not let me down. You promised you would stand with me…if I stood with you.

Now, at the end of the day, you are standing. However, you are not standing by me or my daughter but rather by Barack Obama. I will somehow let my daughter know [the situation] in the months ahead.

I am so ashamed of who you are at this moment. I cannot believe I feel this way.Now, I will not stand by you. I will not stand by Barack Obama. I will never stand by any Democrat that had a hand in this nomination.

I will fight to see all of these Democrats are sent on their way -- hopefully never again to grace the halls of my nation's Capital.

Hillary Clintons Dismays Fervent Supporter

Barbara from California writes: I sent the following to Senator Clinton yesterday:

The Honorable Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton:

Mrs. Clinton, I am writing this letter to let you know I supported you throughout your campaign. I contributed to your cause when I had only a small amount of funds to offer. I left my daughter at home while I drove 30 miles one way night-after-night to telephone for your cause (our cause).

Steve adds: We should hold our leaders to high standards of behavior. If we hold them instead to low standards, they will certainly "live down" to them. A leader must lead -- not sit around determining what is the most politically expedient thing for them to do. Sen. Clinton's supporters expected more from her than she's chosen to give them.

Michelle Obama's Hate America Message

Michelle and Barack in "the good ole days" (although most days were bad then for Michelle)


Thanks to Mary in Illinois for the following information about Michelle Obama's message of hatred for America in general and white people in particular . . . The more we know about the angry Mrs. Obama, the less she looks like First Lady material.


According to Snopes.com, Princeton was requested to put a 'restriction' on distribution
of any copies of the thesis of Michelle Obama (a/k/a/ Michelle LaVaughn Robinson) saying
it could not be made available until November 5, 2008 but when it was published on a
political website they decided they would lift the restriction.

Subj: Thesis - Michele Obama aka Michelle LaVaughn Robinson


MICHELLE OBAMA'S MILITANT RACISM

In her senior thesis at Princeton , Michele Obama, the wife of Barack Obama stated that America was a nation founded on 'crime and hatred'. Moreover, she described whites in America as 'ineradicably racist'.

The 1985 thesis, titled 'Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community' was
written under her maiden name, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson. Michelle Obama claimed in her thesis that to 'Whites at Princeton , it often seems as if, to them, [she] will always be Black first...'

However, it was reported by a fellow black classmate, 'If those 'Whites at Princeton ' really saw Michelle as one who always would 'be Black first,' it seems that she gave them that
impression.'

Michelle Obama uses the terms 'separationist' and 'integrationist' when describing the views of black people.

Mrs. Obama clearly identifies herself with a 'separationist' view of race. 'By actually working with the Black lower class or within their communities as a result of their ideologies, a separationist may better understand the desperation of their situation and feel more hopeless about a resolution, as opposed to an integrationist who is ignorant to their plight.'

She wrote that the path she chose by attending Princeton would likely lead to
her 'further integration and/or assimilation into a white cultural and social structure
that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full
participant.'

Frankly, Michelle Obama is a person who had -- and has -- a huge chip on her shoulder. Not only does she seem to embrace separate black and white societies in America, but she elevates one -- black -- over white. She's no Martin Luther King. She's no Rosa Parks.
More about her thesis: The conclusion is alarming.

Michelle Obama's poll of black alumni concludes that other black students at Princeton do not share her obsession with blackness. But rather than celebrate, she is horrified that black alumni identify with our common American culture more than they value the color of their skin. 'I hoped that these findings would help me conclude that despite the high degree of
identification with whites as a result of the educational and occupational path that black Princeton alumni follow, the alumni would still maintain a certain level of identification with the black community. However, these findings do not support this possibility.'

Is it no wonder that most black alumni ignored her racist questionnaire? Only 89 students responded out of 400 who were asked for input. Michelle Obama does not look into a crowd of Obama supporters and see Americans. She sees black people and white people eternally conflicted.

The thesis provides a trove of Mrs. Obama's thoughts and world view seen through a race-based prism. This is a very divisive view for a potential first lady that would do untold damage to race relations in this country in a Barack Obama administration.

Bill Clinton Backing John McCain?

[Scroll down to read why "The Democratic Party Doesn't Exist Anymore"]

Bulletin: Rasmussen: McCain Trusted More Than Obama On 9 Out of 14 Electoral Issues And the tide continues to turn . . .

I have a report from a credible source that Bill Clinton at the end of the Democratic primaries was talking enthusiastically about "President McCain." I'm trying to get permission to reprint the material I received. The problem is that it could possibly compromise a political operative who's now working hard to defeat Obama . That's all I can say right now, but I'm sure there will be more in the coming days.

Frankly, as part of an Obama Campaign strategy, Bill Clinton's reputation was serious tarnished in the Democratic Primaries. He obviously wants to speak his mind on that subject. Holding him up on doing so is his desire not to anger the current poohbahs (Howard Dean, Donna Brazile, Nancy Pelosi, and others) in the Party. Frankly, Bill needs to stop pretending that all is well in the Democratic Party. (He might start by scrolling down and reading my piece about how the historic Democratic Party no longer exists.)

Bill Clinton has said that Obama -- and the Obama Campaign -- used the "race card" against him. He's also suggested they used it against his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. In that assessment, the former President is right on target. Obama is now obviously trying to use race against John McCain -- the remarks about his [Black] face on the currency being the latest example. The Obama Campaign has long been trying to spread the idea that a vote against him is a vote for racism -- something they believe will scare Democrats into voting for Party rather than country.

It's time -- and it's almost past time -- for Bill and Hillary to step up to the plate. They need to renounce Barack Obama before the Denver Convention. Bill has said he'll be ready to speak out on November 5. That may be too late. Bill needs to speak NOW from his heart and head.




THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE

Hillary would be shunned by the Party if she came out against Obama. Many years ago John F. Kennedy wrote a book (with Ted Sorensen) called "Profiles in Courage." I want HRC and WJC to earn a place in such a future book.

My argument has always been that there the Party of FDR, JFK, and HST does not exist anymore. Of course, Harry Truman knew that by going into Korea to stop the North's invasion that he would be vilified and probably could not win re-election in 1952, by which time not 4,000 American had been killed, but rather 50,000.In 1952, Truman's "approval rating" was much lower than Bush's is now. The nuns at my elementary schools made an (unprecedented) announcement that President Truman would not run again.

As for Roosevelt, he came near to risking impeachmnet by going against Congress to assist Great Britain prior to Pearl Harbor. It is now the Party of Donna Brazile, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Claire McCaskill, John Kerry, Robert Casey, Harry Reid, Richard Durbin, and Barack H. Obama.

There is not some other idealized, Platonic (Democratic) Party that exists apart from such people. Right now, it is able to do harm -- as in blocking any sort of decent energy policy -- but it is not yet able to dominate every aspect of American society. That will of course change if Barack H. Obama is elected President and then of course re-elected by an increasingly dependent society in 2012. "I would rather lose an election than lose a war." (John McCain)

I believe there some Democrats -- Mary Landieu of La is one, Joe Lieberman of CT is another -- who would say something similar (not on the War perhaps but on anything), yet there are not enough.

Some of my dear friends in Beaver County (pro-life, pro-God, pro-guns, the ones Obama despises) are preparing to vote for a candidate because he -- Obama -- is "the Democrat." They persist in the illusion that the Party of JFK still exists. It doesn't, and it shows no signs of reappearing.
