Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

His approval rating is 53%, so makes sense. Why would you not vote for someone you approve of?

So begins the Oath of Enlistment for Our U.S. military, but in an explosive interview with a National Guard whistleblower shown at the link below, soldiers are now being advised they will be ordered (by the enemy within) to commit Treason by breaking that Oath against their country and fellow citizens should civil unrest erupt across the country...
Obama signed an appropriations bill that eliminates the Posse Comitatus law.
Today, for the first time in the history of the United States, there is a law that authorizes the president to identify any American citizen within the borders of the Unites States at his whim and order the standing armed forces of the United States to invade their home/privacy/whatever and detain them without charges indefinitely until it is the whim of the president to release them.
This is the same power every dictator you can recall had and used to make people "disappear" from the population.

This law is so very obviously unconstitutional.
However, you may never hear of it being used, because if the person can be detained indefinitely without charges, there is no requirement for the government to notify anyone like their family or friends that this person has been detained.
... and they just disappear.

The Constitution doesn't mince words when it specifically states the ONLY two conditions when anyone can be detained without justification and denied access to what the Constitution refers to as due process.

Article One, Section 9, clause 2: "The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."

First and foremost, there must be a rebellion or an invasion.

I haven't heard Obama make the proclamation that there is a rebellion in progress by the American people. I haven't heard Obama make the proclamation that the United States has been invaded. I haven't heard Obama mention anything about the public safety requiring that the president have the authority to make people disappear.

There is a very bleak time ahead of us if Obama somehow wins this electioin.
Given their intent, I don't see how the country can avoid an eventual civil war between the people who want to keep the Constitution in place and the Democrats intended type of government, which allows the president to make people disappear.
Most Americans still think the Constitution is worth fighting for.

The Constitution lives or dies this November.

Today, there is only an internal directive in the Navy and Marine Corps that prevent them from taking any action against the American population.
The Posse Comitatus law is gone.

Romney's Momentum Seems to Have Stopped

Nate Silver: "Mr. Romney clearly gained ground in the polls in the week or two after the Denver debate, putting himself in a much stronger overall position in the race. However, it seems that he is no longer doing so..."

"Since the Denver debate, Mr. Obama has held the lead in 16 Ohio polls against 6 for Mr. Romney. In Nevada, Mr. Obama has had the lead in 11 polls, to Mr. Romney's 1. Mr. Obama has led in all polls of Wisconsin since the Denver debate, and he has had five poll leads in Iowa to one for Mr. Romney."

"Part of the confusion (and part of the reason behind the perception that Mr. Romney is still gaining ground in the race) may be because of the headlines that accompany polls."

Mark Blumenthal: ""While the debate certainly boosted Romney's standing in the polls, trends over the past two weeks have been negligible, with the leader seesawing nationally within a range of roughly one percentage point. Over the same period, the standings within the key battleground states have also remained constant. Other poll tracking models have shown the same patterns."

Rasmussen Has Narrow Republican Bias

The Votemaster: "Enough presidential polling data is now available to analyze Rasmussen's data... Averaging all 82 polls, Rasmussen's mean bias is -1.91 points, that is, Rasmussen appears to be making Obama look almost 2 points worse than the other pollsters."

Very smart man that Colin Powell -

"You know, I voted for him in 2008 and I plan to stick with him in 2012, and I'll be voting for he and Vice President Joe Biden next month," he said on CBS' "This Morning."

Asked whether it was an endorsement, he said, "Yes."

Powell praised the president's handling of the economy and ending of the Iraq War.

"I think we ought to keep on the track we are on," he said.

Powell said he had the "utmost respect" for Mitt Romney, but criticized his tax plan.

Hard to argue with him on all acounts.

the root cause of that "mental cancer," is the liberal progressive movement that hijacked our culture beginning in the 1960s. being virtuous, religious and patriotic meant you weren't as smart or enlightened as the limousine libs who produced the movies and TV shows meant to sway the masses to the dark side. that was the dawn of the real war on women and the introduction of violence into our living rooms on a daily basis.

UPDATE: According to CBS News , the Romney campaign now states that, while it disagrees the recent statement on rape from Indiana Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Richard Mourdock, it will nonetheless still support his candidacy.]

We've been here before - in 1990, Republican Clayton Williams, vying with for Ann Richards for the Texas governor's seat, erased his narrow lead and handed Richards the election by suggesting that women being raped should just "relax and enjoy it."

Now, Indiana Republican for U.S. Senate Richard Mourdock has further inflamed the controversy by stating, in a debate last night, that all pregnancies, even those conceived during rape, are a "gift from God". It's the sort of thinking you'll find coming out of the militant wing of the anti-abortion movement (which Todd Akin was a foot-soldier in ) and the Pro-Life movement, that's standing behind Richard Mourdock despite his statement on God and rape.

But if all pregnancies - even those caused by rape - are indeed a "gift from God", from there it's no great logical stretch to conclude that, in some way, God is "pro-rape". Republicans in the Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock mold seem fatally attracted to this, like moths to a flame. They know they can't go there, not even close: ah, but they must. In reality, Akin and Mourdock are stating, albeit clumsily, accepted Republican Party positions.

The Emptiest Candidate in Presidential Election History


Mitt Romney truly believes in nothing.

In the entire history of the United States of America, from George Washington’s election in 1789 on down, has there been a single candidate as unmoored from ideological principle or belief as Mitt Romney?

Romney is a corporate raider and a CEO. His only true ideology is to profit by any means. Romney, therefore, seizes upon whatever toehold he can grab to advance higher. It’s his nature. He’d stampede anything and anyone if it meant political advancement. He has no soul and no core values. This is what makes him inherently dangerous, especially on foreign policy where he’d allow himself to be puppeteered if it meant winning.
