If you are the Democratic National Committee,
and you are stymied by the likes of a Rodeo Clown like Glenn Beck,
AND, you produce an Ad like this…
I didn’t know Glenn Beck was running for office. But, Hey DNC, are you sure you got this right? What’s your message?
This weekend, the Obama is going to all Major(?) News Networks to pitch his Health Care plan. That includes Univision, a major political station…. ?…?. However, Fox News is not included? Why?
So why not go on Fox News? You got a problem with Fox News? Have you seen the ratings Fox News brings in? It has the largest viewership, the largest audience. Forget Fox News for a moment. The National News Networks, ABC, CBS, NBC and the Cable Networks have been losing viewership. BIGTIME! So why not go on Fox News Obama? They have the largest audiences in the world. Obviously, you, and your administration are afraid of Fox News asking the tough questions. Pity, because it’s your message Obama. You can’t take criticism of your message? You’d rather use suck-up networks that bow to you?
By the way, who watches the Sunday Network political talk shows? I think only Bloggers like Hot Air’s AllahPundit (♥) and lesser important people, like me, who are giving comments to comments.
So when the DNC makes an ad, pointing out what Glenn Beck is pointing out, of Obama’s CZAR’s, using Bush’s CZAR’s, you have to ask the question. When did Glenn Beck announce his candidacy for Office?
On a Special Note. Hanna Giles and James O’Keefe should be given a Medal of Honor for their delivery of real Journalism, Real News. This is so refreshing and ingenious. Two twenty year old’s that out smarted the Fringe Media, the Main Stream Media and uncovered who ACORN really is…. YES THEY DID! To use a euphemism.
Why? They saved us from having to give more of our tax payer money to the Obama community organizers. More of our American tax dollars given to corrupt organizations. Remember, this is the same organization that helped get Obama elected. Along with other corrupt organizations like the SEIU. A Union.
But then, the Fringe Media (State Run Media) no longer reports the news. They just take their marching orders from George Soros. We the bloggers, videographers, the average ordinary citizens, we have to do the work the highly paid, highly educated, and highly snobbish liberal media will not do. Report the News. Fair and Balanced.

Playing the race card. It’s what liberals do when they want to silence any opposition to their destructive causes. Especially when liberals are feel threatened by the light of reality and feel the need to change the subject. They call people who disagree with them a racist. It’s toxic and unfair when the real issue is policy. It’s the policies we disagree with. When policies are challenged on their merit, liberals use the race card to attack the question.
Jimmy Carter demonstrated this tactic today of calling the people that disagree with Obama policies as racists. You might as well put Carter in that same box as Al Sharpton and Jessy Jackson, both are known race baiters. If Carter thought he was helping Obama, he wasn’t. Carter actually hurt Obama by opening his big mouth. Carter offers nothing to prove his assertion. I believe the man has Peanut Butter between his ears. My proof is in his statements.
It doesn’t help Obama when members of his own party openly uses racism as a scare tactic. This is a form of intimidation. It is an effort to shut up the opposition. If there were all these racist out there, then how did Obama get elected? More than 70% of America voted for Obama. There was suppose to be this big wave of Hope and Change coming to America. A new age of civility. That’s all gone 180 degrees in the opposite direction.
Georgia Democrat Congressman Hank Johnson: Republican Joe Wilson’s Comments Will Lead To “White Hoods” Returning. Really? Joe Wilson is a Republican and as far as anyone knows, he’s not apart of the KKK or any other racially dividing group. The only congressman that was, and maybe still is, a member of the KKK, is Robert Byrd and he’s a Democrat. A DEMOCRAT.
Sure Joe Wilson made an inappropriate outburst during Obama’s speech to the Congress. He apologized to Obama for it and Obama accepted it. That should be the end of it. But No! Congress votes to admonish Joe Wilson. Yet, you have corrupt Congressmen like Charles Rangel failing to pay taxes. So slapping the hand of a Republican Congressman is more important than investigating a corrupt Congressman.
From the New York Times:
Representative Charles B. Rangel has earned more than $75,000 in rental income from a villa he has owned in the Dominican Republic since 1988, but never reported it on his federal or state tax returns, according to a lawyer for the congressman and documents from the resort.
Rangel is the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which writes the federal tax code. He writes the tax code that we have to pay our taxes on. Yet somehow, Rangel fails to pay his fair share of taxes and there is little to no fuss made about it. He’s still the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Why hasn’t he been removed from the committee, or from Congress for that matter? This is not the first scandal that Rangel has been involved with concerning taxes. Rangel is one of the most corrupt Congressman and get away with breaking the law he writes. And Joe Wilson gets scolded for calling Obama a lier. Which Obama did lie, by the way.
The Fringe Media (State Run Media) agrees with Carter. Even Osama Bin Ladin agrees with Carter.
There are so many bigger issues to deal with in this country.
Why are we dealing in the minutia of make believe racism?

“If we as a nation…fully funded a broadcaster like the British citizens fund BBC, we might have an impact on what they cover and have more power to demand that they cover everything,”
(The Wall Street Journal)
Oh, but you already have a fully funded government run broadcaster. It’s called National Public Radio (NPR). You also have Public Broadcast Service (PBS) on Television. All totally funded by taxpayer dollars. All programming determined by people who think you deserve the material content of their choosing. The content of the programming predetermined by a handful of people. You do not have any say in the content, not ratings, no approval or disapproval.
So what’s the problem? Some say, there’s not enough viewership, some say there’s not enough “Fair Content”. Lets explore what “Fair Content” is defined as shall we. Some call it the Fairness Doctrine. A law that goes back to the Communications Act of 1937 when then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt felt it necessary to required stations to offer “equal opportunity” to all legally qualified political candidates for any office if they had allowed any person running in that office to use the station.
In 1949, The FCC took the view that station licensees were “public trustees,” and as such had an obligation to afford reasonable opportunity for discussion of contrasting points of view on controversial issues of public importance. The Commission later held that stations were also obligated to actively seek out issues of importance to their community and air programming that addressed those issues.
In the 1980’s, Ronald Reagen dissolved what was then called the Fairness Doctrine. Since then, the rise of such radio personalities like Rush Limbaugh have grown enormous audiences on the AM Radio Band. Why is that? The Free Market took over. Sure, Liberals launched “Air America“, a anti-conservative media wannabe to compete against conservative talk radio, but it failed. It failed miserably. Why?
Could it be that “Air America’s” message is not what people want to listen to? Could it be the message that “Air America” delivered was not what the Air Waves wanted to hear? The Air Waves being the target audience. Who is tuning in to Air America’s message. Some liberals claim, “we already have NPR, why do I need to change the dial and tune into Air America?”.
Good point, but why does Conservative talks radio continue to dominating the AM Dial ratings with more and more radio personalities and audiences? Why are there so many Conservative Talk Radio Pundits with large audiences? Different Media, different medium. Talk Radio is all about listening and learning. Television is all about watching and being entertained. I’ll leave you to decipher why they continue to call the television the “Boob Tube”.

It’s all about censorship. It’s all about who Obama surrounds himself with. Learn about the Czars
For years, both parties in Congress have been ignoring their constituents. The attitude our Elected Congressional leaders have shown us has finally reached a crescendo of Anger in August, and now in September, members of Congress are finally going to hear our voices.
Today hundred of thousands marched on the Capitol in protest to Government Bailouts, Socialist Government Health Care, and Out of Control Government Spending.
I had to work on this beautiful Po’aono (Saturday), during my break I took a drive by the rally and took these pictures from my van. Breath-Taking.
Sorry for the blurry pictures. I wish I could have done better, but this is what I have.
The rally took place on Kamehameha hwy near the King Kamehameha statue on Bishop Street. About a hundred people lined the road waving signs and flags.
As I was driving by, people could see me taking pictures and I gave them the Shaka right back.
In Washington where the largest protests took place, authorities were unprepared for the magnitude of people arriving to demonstrate peacefully. An American Right.
From the New York Times:
The demonstrators numbered well into the tens of thousands, though the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd. Many came on their own and were not part of an organization or group. But the magnitude of the rally took the authorities by surprise, with throngs of people streaming from the White House to Capitol Hill for more than three hours.
Democracy in Action. The Republic is taking back the country. I did some skimming on the internet to see what was happening around the country and just about everywhere around this Great Country there were Tens of Thousands of Tea Parties.
These people look real angry, right? I have not seen anything like this in years. Ordinary people, not professional protesters that show up wearing purple SEIU T-Shirts, but average Americans wanting real change in Washington. Sure, most of the protesters were Conservatives, but there were also Democrats, Libertarians and Union people.
From the Washington Post:
Jeff Mapps, 29, a stagehand and labor union member from South Philadelphia, left home about 6 a.m. to attend the protest. He said he had not been involved in previous demonstrations but that he watches Fox News host Glenn Beck “all the time” and wanted to be part of an event that he thinks will be historic. Beck had drummed up support for the march.
Holding a sign that said “Preserve, Protect, Defend” on a Red Line Metro train packed with conservative activists, Mapps fretted over a “blatant disregard for the Constitution.”
“We’ve been watching it for six to eight months,” he said. “It was finally an opportunity to get involved. It’s been boiling over. . . . It’s not just about health care. It’s about so much more than that.”
Anna Hayes, 58, a nurse from Fairfax County, stood on the Mall in 1981 for Reagan’s inauguration. “The same people were celebrating freedom,” she said. “The president was fighting for the people then. I remember those years very well and fondly.”
Deriding what she called “Obamacare,” Hayes said: “This is the first rally I’ve been to that demonstrates against something, the first in my life. I just couldn’t stay home anymore.”
There are many people that either just don’t know, or just don’t get it. Take Comedian Wannabe Janeane Garofalo rants on the Tea Parties as nothing more than racists that hate a black man as president. She couldn’t be more wrong and disgustingly vulgar.
This is not about Black and White, this is about Freedom. This is not about Democrat and Republican, it about government not listening to the people. It about following the Constitution not changing it to suit government appetite for more control of our lives, our businesses, our decisions. Do not underestimate the will of the American people.
With a picture of a Tea Bag and Pitcher Kool Aid, the message is clear. Don’t Drink the Kool Aid. If you don’t know what that means, Google It.
Another group of people that just don’t get it is the News Media. What I like to call State Run Media. From Brian Williams of NBC bowing to Obama, to the rest of the media gushing at Obama’s presence. Their objectivity has been destroyed. Their credibility have been diminished. Their worthiness to report the news accurately, fairly report the news. To arrange, adjust, or proportion the parts news symmetrically. Or as Fox News says: Fair and Balanced.
Take CNN for example. The first Cable News Network. You would think the influence of CNN would stand for Accuracy in Journalism. Over the years, CNN like other news outlets have let the American people down. Like the politicians, they, CNN and other news networks, do not fear the American people. The media thinks we’ll accept anything they tell us. Or do they?
Remember CNN’s Susan Roesgen coverage of the first Tea Party? Maybe it’s revenge for the condescending reporting CNN has consistently given. The dismissal of the opinion of average Americans by members of the News Media. You don’t see that with Fox News. Why is that?
How many people showed up at the Tea Parties? They don’t like to give estimates on how many people showed up, but I like this estimate from Day By Day.

But Delicious anyways
Eight years ago, the United States was attack, AGAIN, by Islamic Muslim Terrorist. I remember it like it was yesterday. At that time I was living in New Jersey, close to the New York state border and New York City. I once stayed at the World Trade Center back in the 1980’s when there was a Marriott Hotel next to the towers. I remember eating at the Restaurant “Windows on the World” located at the top of the North Tower building also known as World Trade Center One.
The attack on September 11th, 2001, was far more deadly than the previous attacks against the Towers. On February 26, 1993, was attacked by Islamic Muslim Terrorists.
The attack was planned by a group of Islamic Terrorists including Ramzi Yousef, Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin and Ahmad Ajaj. They received financing from Khaled Shaikh Mohammed, Yousef’s uncle. You might remember who that guy is.
In March 1994, four men were convicted of carrying out the bombing: Abouhalima, Ajaj, Ayyad and Salameh. The charges included conspiracy, explosive destruction of property and interstate transportation of explosives. In November 1997, two more were convicted: Yousef, the mastermind behind the bombings, and Eyad Ismoil, who drove the truck carrying the bomb. The 1,500 lb (680 kg) urea nitrate-hydrogen gas enhanced device was intended to knock the North Tower (Tower One) into the South Tower (Tower Two), bringing both towers down and killing thousands of people. It failed to do so, but did kill six people and injured 1,042.
Another Muslim Terrorist that eventually was convicted and incarcerated was Omar Abdel-Rahman also known as the blind Sheikh. This religious leader responsible for acts of violence including the November 1997 Luxor massacre, in which 58 foreign tourists and four Egyptians were killed.
It has been said that as they were leading the Sheikh to prison, a guard remarked that the towers are still standing. To which the Sheikh replyed, “for now“. I’m paraphrasing, of course, but he was right.
On the Morning of September 11th, 2001, Islamic Muslim Terrorist attacked the United States, Again!
There were a total of 2,993 deaths, including the 19 hijackers: 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,603 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. An additional 24 people remain listed as missing. All of the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center. That’s right, there were more than just Americans that got killed on that day. New York is a melting pot of immigrants from all over the world and many of them worked in this area of New York and lost their lives to Islamic Muslim Terrorist.
On that day, the World Trade Center towers were destroyed by Islamic Muslim Terrorist using airplanes as Weapons of Mass Destruction. Not only were the towers attacked, the Pentagon in Arlington Virgina was attacked and passengers prevented another attack on Washington and crashed in Shanksville PA.
At 8:46 a.m., American Airlines Flight 11 was crashed into the World Trade Center’s North Tower, followed by United Airlines Flight 175 which hit the South Tower at 9:03 a.m. Another group of Islamic Muslim Terrorists flew American Airlines Flight into the Pentagon at 9:37 a.m. A fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, whose ultimate target was thought to be either the United States Capitol or White House, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 a.m, after the passengers on board engaged in a fight with the Islamic Muslim Terrorists.
For many years now, Islamic Muslim Terrorists have been attacking the United States and United States interests all over the world for years. They plan to attack America again. The Obama would have you ignore what happen on 9/11 and make this day of remembrance, just a distant memory. Indeed not just a foggy memory, but forgotten altogether.
The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.

What does the Muslim Association of Hawai’i have to say about this event in American History?
They would rather you Zip-It up and Shut-Up
It didn’t take long before the Obama disparages the memory of those killed on September 11th, 2001. By making this day a day of National Community Service and Remembrance. This insults the people that lost their lives on that day. It insults the families, friends and loved ones of those who lost their lives on that day. This is not a day of National Community Service, it is a day of Remembrance. What Obama is doing is cheapening the memory of the largest attack on American soil in history. National Community Service, like what? ACORN?
It is American Exceptionalism brings out community service without the coercion of government. There is no need to bring Community Service into a day of Remembrance. It dilutes the meaning of September 11, 2001. It takes away the attention of the greatest act of Mass Murder committed upon this great country by Islamic Muslim Terrorist. It is a vulgar attempt by the Obama to lessen the value of the lives that were lost on that day, and the lives of our Military that have fought these terrorist since September 11, 2001. The American People are perfectly capable of self-voluntarism without the governments help, thank you very much.

Did anyone listen to the Obama’s speech before a Joint Session of Congress tonight? Did Obama explain any specifics?
Who will pay for the Public option. He did not explain how it would work. Platitudes and gobbly-gook language and Cheap Shots would be a better description of this message. Nonproductive 50 minutes of our lives we’ll never get back. And maybe that’s the point. Just Baffle Them With BS. Them is US by the way.
For Christ’s Sake: Did anyone get any details on how the Obama health Care Plan? I didn’t. Who’s gonna pay for it? Where’s the money gonna come from. Lecturing Americans claiming his policies are under attack by false accusations, e.g. Death Panels, are false. Then why is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the health policy adviser to the Obama and brother of Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in Obama”s Cabinet? This guy is Doctor Death. Obama wants us to convince us that death panels are not true. THEY ARE!!
I am firmly convinced that Obama is a Flim-Flam Man. A Snake Oil Salesman. A Charlatan.
I was asked by another blogger to tone down my accusations of Obama as the Socialist Fascist that he is, and to be more reasonable and rational regarding the issues of Health Care. BS, I say BS. What I heard tonight is Rubbish!

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions ALL workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
I started writing about this last night, and this morning in the Tribune-Herald an opinion article appeared with my thoughts about Labor Day. The timing could not be more appropriate.
There was a time when this country needed Unions. Since then, Unions have perverse themselves from the meaning of freedom and Justice, and into Government Bailouts. Give us Votes, We Will Give You Policy. Unions have become a Protection Racket caring only for the upper echelon and giving out t-shirts to workers when political action is needed.
Union leaders have made themselves wealthy at the expense of Union Workers. Workers have suffered from the abuse of Union Bosses. Financial support for unions is mandatory making union leaders unaccountable to the rank and file workers. Big Labor thrives on government granted special privileges based on coercion.
Non-Union workers are constantly being threatened to Join or Die. Compulsory Unionism. Accept the terms of the Union Bosses and give up your right to negotiate your own employment terms. How is this freedom?
Labor Day is about honoring hardworking Americans who make our economy prosper and not union bosses who rely on forced unionism privileges for personal and political gain. One only has to look at the United Auto Workers and the Service Employees International Union to see the corruption.
I found this video that is totally hysterical and accurate. I hope you get a laugh out it as I did.

Got tired of watching Fox News reruns and decided to watch the local news. KHON2 has a poll on the influence Unions have on Local and State government. Unions are concerned about layoffs and the failing economy. The State is perhaps the largest employer in Hawai’i. Unions are demanding the state either raise taxes to protect their jobs or raid the Hurricane emergency fund. That’s my money that they want to pay their salaries. How fair is that? Absolute Greed.
Representative Neil Abercrombie (D) wants to spend $10 Billion dollars in high wages for a massive construction project in the federal territory of Guam, restrict the ability of foreigners to get those jobs and hope Hawai’i residents, although 3,800 miles away, will flock to Guam for the work. These are Union Jobs only.
This is current result of KHON2 poll as of 5:30 PM HST
