When any politician is plummeting in the polls, strange things may happen. With President Obama, there is no exception to this rule. Consider these recent flukes in his acknowledgements:

Obama's Friends

  • Congressional hearings are exposing the Justice Department’s activities in the “Fast & Furious” Mexican gunrunning scheme linking them to more than 200 Murders, while Obama confesses he has complete and total confidence in Holder, the DOJ head.
  • Here is Obama’s quote that demands Americans to take a closer look “I think I’ve been very clear that I have complete confidence in Attorney General Holder and how he handles his office,” said Obama in a press conference in the East Room of the White House. “He has been very aggressive in going after gunrunning and cash transactions that are going to these transnational drug cartels in Mexico. … He’s indicated that he was not aware of what was happening in Fast and Furious. Certainly, I was not.”
  • Other news agencies report, “Fast and Furious has gotten a lot of people killed,” he observed, “including Brian Terry. CBS News disclosed Friday morning that former Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler knew about Fast and Furious 18 months ago. He’s now Holder’s chief of staff. Yet the President and Holder both stick to the claim that they had no knowledge of the operation. Just how much longer does this administration think the American public is going to believe that story? People aren’t that gullible.”
  • The news reports from around the world covering the “Wall Street” protestors and sympathizers suggest thousands of arrests have occurred due to disobedience as well as costing taxpayers millions from damages and policing activities – not to include the loss from business in the area of the protests. Now, we learn… “Never before has a boisterous campaign of civil disobedience – marked by more than 700 arrests (in New York) – received the kind of warm welcome from a sitting president and his party that President Obama and leading Democrats have accorded the “Occupy Wall Street” movement.
  • After a trip to the protestor’s Internet website, it is rather easy to grasp that these protestors are not “innocent” college students that don’t have a clue about the “real world.” http://www.occupywallst.org/
  • Their demands for free education, food, housing, transportation, clothing, and adult beverages is very much beyond the pale for most people living in the real world, but they must come up with something to protest because their intent is not a mixture of “stupidity” and “innocence” but rather a darker wish to do harm to others, including the potential collapse of capitalism without a clue about what capitalism means.

With these thoughts in mind, can anyone imagine why President Obama is demanding respect and no criticism? Is this man smoking his own dope or what? The above “partial” listing of un-American support is only two from a list that is many. The reason this is important is he took an oath to defend America – not destroy Her!

Shouldn’t we ask, “What then is the value of one’s words when the person speaking places no value upon them?” Obama falsely proclaimed America had to have the stimulus for “shovel ready” jobs only after to disclose and laugh about the fact there were none.

While the President may be laughing about all the un-American activity, most Americans are not laughing with him, but instead laughing at him. Neither is Obama a contender for a Comedy Show or the Presidency. If Mr. Obama continues his run for the Presidency, ridicule will laugh him off the stage!

Do these two simple words mean anything ‘special’… laus deo? The meanings of these two simple words are important to all Americans to serve as a compass of understanding and hope. These fundamental Christian tenet words sit high atop the Washington Monument in Washington DC.

Praise be to God or simply praise God may accurately reflect the meanings of these simple words in English. Why would anyone want to place these words on the Washington Monument? Could it be a way to remind legislators of a greater power than their own… before falsely elevating themselves to the status of Deity when they write legislation?

You see, few Americans still understand that our forefathers explained those that fill legislative seats are “servants” of the people. That means we the people are the rulers that give instructions to the elected servants that in turn pass legislation that favors the most desires.

Just as importantly, America’s forefathers cautioned about those that would run for public office that would be anti-American, anti-Constitutionalists, and would fight to destroy Her. Consequently, winning an election does not a “GOOD” American make!

Anti-Americans come in all shapes, colors, and fashions. They may look like good Americans and speak like Angels, but only after monitoring their deeds will we know with certainty their reality. Failing to watch any elected officials “deeds and actions” give rise to the Hitler’s, Stalin’s, and Castro’s of the world.

America had better learn this fact or else! When anyone questions decisions made by Herman Cain, Jesse Jackson, President Obama, or the US Attorney General, racism must never be a consideration. No government can allow public officials to hide behind their race, sex, politic, religion, or anything else and not face their true selves. If allowed, public officials will surely run amuck and citizens become the losers. If any person uses the race card in lieu of explanation, then aren’t they suggesting that being Black allows stupidity and no accountability? How does that resonate within any community?

Therefore, if the President of the United States bails out Wall Street against the people’s wishes, it doesn’t matter if that President is Black, Green, White, Red, or whatever. Perhaps some feel comfortable pushing the race card in politics, but when it gets to actions, that action must stand on its own feet and withstand constructive criticisms!

When we are now learning American taxpayers will lose ½ of a Billion Dollars in the ‘green energy’ scandals, do we excuse such actions because the man behind them is not a White man? Such logic is beyond the pale, isn’t it? If not, then allowing people of colour to rob banks without dispensing justice is permissible, right.

Now, America is at a crossroads about race Vs accountability. How well we handle this issue is going to direct the future of America for many hundreds of years to come.

Consider the facts of the case exposed, to date. Recently, Congress began an investigation into US gun smuggling efforts into Mexico. These hearings exposed the following details:

  • At least 200 murders resulted from the Justice Department’s approval of this operation.
  • A US Border Patrol Agent murdered because of the Justice Department’s approval of this operation.
  • Around 2500 weapons smuggled from the US into Mexico because of approvals from the Justice Department
  • All of these guns were “given” to a Mexican Cartel approved by the Justice Department.
  • US tax payer money paid for the entire ordeal as approved by the Justice Department and its agencies.

Now, the most shocking point of this entire article is the response offered by the President of the United States when question by the news media about the Justice Departments involvement in the “Fast & Furious” scandal: “I have complete confidence in Attorney General Eric Holder.”

For the rest of us, such details would not lead anyone to manage confidence in anyone, would it? If this were truly a “confidence builder” action for President Obama, then wouldn’t it be fair to ask, “Will America allow the race card to trump justice? Will America allow this case to be ‘white-washed’ because it’s permissible for Blacks to act without consequence or responsibility?” Now what will Mr. Obama say to the family of the killed Border Patrol Agent? Does Mr. Obama apologize to Mexico for the Justice Department’s actions or has his “apology tour” ceased?”

Shouldn’t the next Obama press conference be held at the Washington monument?

CEO to Congress: I Was Fined Because I Hired Too Many People
Tuesday, September 20, 2011 – 12:06pm

Capitalist Punished for Creating Jobs

During his September 13th testimony before congress Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, revealed that he has been fined thousands of dollars by regulators for
hiring too many people. He also said that the regulators have required him to stop hiring all together. (h/t Fox Nation)

Peter Schiff followed up these shocking revelations with straight talk on how exactly big government policies choke free markets. He also went on to explain in detail exactly why a number of liberal ideas are disastrous in reality. His full testimony is, undoubtedly, a must watch.

Schiff has also laid out a fully detailed and radically different plan to roll back repressive government policies and breath new life into the economy at Forbes.

UPDATE: Here is how Schiff describes his ordeal with regulators who fined him for hiring too many workers in his Forbes piece:

“In my own business, securities regulations have prohibited me from hiring brokers for more than three years. I was even fined fifteen thousand dollar expressly for hiring too many brokers in 2008. In the process I incurred more than $500,000 in legal bills to mitigate a more severe regulatory outcome as a result of hiring too many workers. I have also been prohibited from opening up additional offices. I had a major expansion plan that would have resulted in my creating hundreds of additional jobs. Regulations have forced me to put those jobs on hold.”

Threat From Mexican Cartel Cancels High School Football Game In U.S.

Mexico High School Football Threat

SAN ANTONIO, TexasMexican drug cartels have threatened a high school football team from Mexico. The potential for violence prompted the team’s opponent in Texas to cancel an upcoming game.

The U.S. high school, near the South Texas city of Corpus Christi, decided Tuesday to call off its home game this week against the team from Monterrey Tech High in Mexico.

The Mexican school also cancelled last week against another Texas high school football game after threats from drug cartels. The Mexican school was told to pay $30,000 to safely cross the border.

“We’re looking out for the safety of our kids and their kids,” said Matt Anastacio, athletic director at Gregory-Portland High School.

Anastacio said school leaders acted out of an abundance of caution.

“Could anything happen? Probably not. But you never know with what’s going on down there,” he said. “Nothing may happen here. But when the kids from Monterrey go back, something may happen to them.”

A spokesman for Monterrey Tech declined comment. The Mexican team has played north of the border for years during its off-season.
