     The Constitution establishes a separation of powers to provide a “checks and balances” for  a reason: The framers did NOT want another Monarchy.

     From the most loyal of Democrats this weekend, the question has been posed over and over again, as to whether President Obama overstepped his constitutional authority in committing the United States resources to Operation Odyssey Dawn (where did that name come from).

     The President stated in his speech that he had consulted with his National Security team, and with the United Nations, and that he had met with a bipartisan group of Congressmen and Senators. But did he need the “consent” of Congress? Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has gone as far as to suggest that the POTUS mat have committed an impeachable offense!

      And then there is the Arab League, who urged the No-Fly zone, and after the commital of resources from the US, UK, France, etc., are now condemning the action. Is there a reason why the US weighed in so quickly in the peaceful demonstrations in Egypt, but kept a low-profile as the bloodshed occurred at the hands of Quaddafi, as the Libyan citizens pleadded for international help, much like the Iranians did when Obama turned a deaf ear? Is Obama’s response to the Libyan matter, which has even drawn the ire of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, tied to his longtime association with the ev. Jeremiah Wright, who is tied to Louis Farrakhan and Libya’s Quaddafi? Farrakhan has spoken out vehemently at Obama’s actions in the past few days, criticizing him for any statements or involvement in the Libyan matter.

       Using Rev. Wright’s words, perhaps the “chickens have come home to roost” in Obama’s world, and his past is now becoming his present, and no longer being able to “vote present”, he must decide exactly where his allegiances lie!

     Ambassador Susan Rice seems to be MIA !!

     She must be travelling with Waldo, so Where in the World is Susan Rice?

      As the UN Security Council convened to discuss the Libya situation, within the 9 days that our POTUS remained silent about Rev. Jeremiah’s friend, Mouammar Qaddafi (ok, its Louis Farrakhan’s friend, who has taken Rev. Wright to visit the Libyan leader), our Ambassador to the United Nations was nowhere to be found. Instead, at this point of crisis in the MidEast, the Ambassador was in Africa at a conference on “sustainability”!

       Going bank to the Flotilla fiasco, when the UN was meeting to discuss that matter, the Ambassador opted not to go to New york for the meeting, because she preferred to stay in Washington DC.

      Perhaps it is time that Ambassador Rice tender her resignation!

     The tragic death of honor student Derrion Albert on the streets of Chicago this week has brought the teen violence of Chicago, and other places, to the front pages. While the President was voicably involved in the “racism” that occurred toward his friend, Prof. Gates, a few months ago, he has been noticeably quiet on the inner city violence that took this young man’s life.

     Derrion Albert was a bright young man, an honor student, with a promising future. From the cellphone videos of the attack, it appears that Derrion may have been attempting to be a good samaritan as he came upon a brawl. A huge piece of wood was the murder weapon here, and all but one of the suspects have been arrested.

      At Derrion’s funeral yesterday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan were both in attendance. Both men extolled the need to address the violence amomg the nation’s youth.

      The White House has said that the Attorney General and the Secretary of Education will travel to Chicago to meet with school officials to discuss the issues. Surprisingly, the “Safe School” czar, Kevin Jennings, is not a part of the discussions.

      The death of Derrion Albert should be more than a teachable moment. It should bring out true and valuable discussions that could lead to solutions for this senseless situation. How does someone like Charles Payne or Juan Williams grow up in the same type of inner city situation and emerge as successful people? For his family, this should not be photo ops for our politicians, but a move toward addressing the problems that led to their loss.

By Joan Swirsky
Once upon a time, a white teenager from Kansas got pregnant by her black Kenyan boyfriend, Barack Obama Sr., or was it her husband? Whatever. (I say no whatever because we’ve never seen either marriage or divorce certificates).
Some say the couple was in Kenya visiting relatives when the birth of their son, Barack Obama Jr., occurred. No matter. (I say no matter because we’ve never seen an authentic birth certificate). By the time the baby was two years old his father abandoned him for his other wife and child in Kenya.
I wonder how toddler Barry felt when his father left him, and never reappeared until a single time when the boy was 10. Bewildered? Sad? Lonely? Angry? What do two-year-olds do with those feelings?

It didn’t take long for Barry’s mother to meet and marry an Indonesian native named Lolo Soetoro. They moved to Indonesia, where her child became Barry Soetoro, took on Indonesian citizenship, and was presumably schooled in public, Christian, and Muslim schools. (I say presumably because we’ve never seen those school records). But when Barry was 10 years old, his mother sent him back to the U.S. to be raised by her parents, Madelyn and Stanley Dunham, although she kept her baby daughter Maya Soetoro with her.

I wonder how the by-now fully-sentient young Barry felt when his mother sent him packing. Sad? Jealous of the baby who remained behind with mommy? Confused and dizzy by the disparate cultures – languages, customs, foods, sights, sounds, schooling – he had experienced? Resentful? What did Barry do with those feelings?

By the time he was 10, the boy had been abandoned three times – by his father, stepfather, and mother. And although he was raised by his white grandparents in Hawaii – where “people of color” were not his color – he found out soon enough that his mixed-race background rendered him, in effect, an outsider. Did that make him feel self-conscious, indignant, victimized?

But he wasn’t altogether an outsider. In Hawaii, young Barry met Frank Marshall Davis, his first and perhaps most influential mentor. The infamous Marshall, a Communist activist (and self-confessed pedophile) taught Barry – was it Obama, Soetero, Dunham? – that white people were the devil incarnate and that blacks were the most “victimized” people on earth.

Yet the abandoned and rejected child was lucky. His white-devil grandparents gave him a comfortable life in Hawaii, and an education that apparently qualified him to attend several prestigious schools – Occidental College in CA, Columbia Univ. in NY City, and Harvard Law School in Cambridge, MA.(I say apparently qualified because we’ve never seen any of his college transcripts).

BARRY MORPHS INTO BARACK

After his undergraduate days at Columbia, Obama chose not to go to graduate school, but instead held various jobs in the Big Apple and then moved to Chicago to become a community organizer. Although he had been exposed to American exceptionalism through his life in the United States and his privileged education, it is clear that his experiences in impoverished Kenya and totalitarian Indonesia, as well as his exposure to Marshall and the other radicals he had met during his years in New York – among them the unrepentant domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn of Weather Underground infamy – made the deepest and most lasting impressions.

Their messages of American imperialism and its white-devil culture clearly resonated in the thrice-abandoned boy. In his young-adult and adult years, free to choose his friends and pursuits, he opted exclusively for far-left socialists and Marxists, and activities aimed at relieving the suffering of people he perceived to be as victimized as apparently he felt he had been. He understood their feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and impotent rage, as well as the pain of fatherlessness. After all, his Harvard-educated father consciously chose to leave him. And his mother gave him away. Was that depressing to Barry? Infuriating?

When given the opportunity to join one of dozens of churches in Chicago, Barry – who had morphed into Barack – opted for the Trinity United Church of Christ, which was led by the fire-breathing Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose decades-long anti-American and anti-Semitic rants apparently resonated in Obama’s rejected and abandoned heart and soul. (I say apparently resonated because in over 20 years of regular attendance, Obama said he heard nothing inflammatory or anti-American, and we’ve never seen the videotapes of any sermon, although each one was unfailingly recorded).

“God damn America,” Wright raged. “The chickens have come home to roost,” he “preached” to his whooping and hollering congregation after 9/11. Obama heard nothing.

But it wasn’t only Wright who Obama was attracted to in Chicago. He was also drawn to another hate-spewing radical, Rev. Louis Farrakhan, as well as to the raving Father Michael Phleger, the radical Islamist Khalid Rashidi, his friends and neighbors the Ayers, and to equally-close friends “Tony” and Rita Rezko – Tony being the notorious “fixer” and now-convicted-and-imprisoned felon for fraud, bribery, and money laundering. What did the seemingly mild-mannered Obama find so irresistible in these angry and/or crooked people and others like them? Was it the same thing that a shy man finds in his attraction to a flamboyant girlfriend – and alter-ego, a person who expresses what he really feels but is unable to give voice to?   

In these relationships and in community organizing – which offers inner-city mostly-black residents job training, tutoring, and methods to organize tenants’-rights groups and voter-registration drives, etc. – the twenty-something Obama apparently found his calling, and also a renewed and burning ambition.

WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE

While his community-organizing job paid a paltry $12,000 or so per year, Obama somehow managed to pay his way through one of the priciest graduate schools in the world, Harvard Law School. (I say somehow managed because we have no record of his tuition payments). Even more amazing, he became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review without ever producing a written paper – or at least a paper that the public has ever read.

There is a good deal of evidence that Obama’s acceptance at Harvard Law – and his tuition – were facilitated by friends who had a vested interest in the community organizer. Among them was Percy Sutton, a former Manhattan borough president and ardent leftist, who was also Malcolm X’s lawyer. In an interview last year, the octogenarian Sutton stated: “I was introduced to [Obama] by a friend. The friend’s name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and the introduction took place about 20 years ago.” Sutton described al-Mansour as “the principle adviser to one of the world’s richest men” and suggested that al-Mansour was raising money for Obama. Knowing that Sutton had friends at Harvard, al-Mansour asked him if he would write a letter to Harvard recommending Obama, which Sutton did most agreeably. This took place about 1988 when 27-year-old Obama was applying to Harvard Law.

Journalist Jack Cashill has credibly speculated that Obama’s two memoirs were actually written by his pal Bill Ayers, who was and is a University of Illinois at Chicago English professor, having escaped life in prison on a technicality. Two years [after he was admitted to law school], Cashill writes, “while still a law student, Obama improbably received an advance to write a memoir that would be called `Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,’ which was published in 1995.” His second memoir, published in 2006, was “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.” (I suspect Cashill said “improbably received an advance” because, as stated earlier, Obama had not produced even one paper or distinguished himself in any way to have inspired a major publishing company to approach him).

Al this begs the question: Who writes two memoirs about himself before the age of 45? My own speculation is that it could be no one but a narcissist.  As most people know in this age of pop psychology, the psychiatric disorder of narcissism derives from the Greek myth in which Narcissus, a handsome young man, became obsessed with himself and fell in love with his own image as he gazed into a pool of water. A lot of people have some degree of narcissism, which is characterized by grandiosity, an unquenchable need for admiration, unhealthy self-absorption, dependence on the affirmation of others, and also a lack of empathy, which is hidden by both personal charm and the kind of earnest language that pretends to “feel your pain.”

Or he could be a malignant narcissist., which psychiatrist Dr. Otto Kernberg, a legendary leader in thought disorders, compares to a narcissist on steroids. This variety involves paranoid traits (think of Obama’s thin-skinned, quasi-hysterical reactions to Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin), and ego-syntonic aggression, which means the person is perfectly in-sync with people who have the courage he lacks to lash out.

But consider the source! Obama’s father was a self-aggrandizing narcissist who thought nothing of throwing his son away to fulfill his own ambitions and his mother also threw him away for the same reason. Talk about DNA, which Obama perfectly exhibited when, during his campaign, he unflinchingly dispensed with both his white grandmother and his black “mentor” Rev. Wright for his personal ambition.

GROOMING THE PERFECT MARXIST CANDIDATE

This leads me to only one conclusion, which I wrote about in a former article: “Obama: The Trojan Horse.” My theory is that President Obama’s narcissistic charm, even temperament, skill with words (teleprompter included), hunger to please, radical agenda, and subterranean rage at the “unfair” American system have been brilliantly exploited by powerful leftist radicals and Marxists in the United States, who for decades have plotted America’s path to socialism. He is their pawn, totally dispensable but handy while the “aura” lasts.

These “handlers” saw in Obama the ideal blank slate on which to actualize their agenda, and they made sure the slate remained blank by concealing (or destroying) any evidence of his past, including his birth certificate, Selective Service record, visa(s), school transcripts, and other vital documents. All of which is costing his moneyed backers – including America-loathing billionaire George Soros – multimillions in lawyers’ fees to fight the proliferating lawsuits that seek the truth about this stealth president.

In fact, former ambassador Alan Keyes, one of the many plaintiffs seeking proof of Obama’s American citizenship, has reported that Obama’s lawyers have now filed a motion “to quash our effort to obtain the relevant documents…[which] confirms Obama’s ruthless determination to destroy anyone who continues to seek the information the Constitution requires. Obama thus signals his intent to bring financial ruin on those who won’t accept his cover-up of the circumstances of his birth is a tactical escalation. It confirms the common sense suspicion that he won’t act forthrightly in this matter because he has something to hide.”

It is clear that Obama and his fellow radicals are restive. In the less-than four weeks of his presidency, the new president has taken volumes from the Marxian handbook, which dictates that the stupid masses be blitzed with an overload of information, hollow press conferences, appointments, dismantling of formerly effective national-security programs, et al., in order to set the stage for a massive, Soviet-style takeover of our government, including a civilian national security force that Obama has said should be “just as powerful, strong and well-funded as the U.S. military.” Echoes of Nazi Germany in 1938, anyone?

According to writer Kyle-Anne Shrive, in Obama’s ascendance:

“We have yet to see a more perfect collision of Murphy’s Law with the Peter Principle. In only three weeks’ time, [he] has signaled to every terrorist on the planet that we are a sorry, groveling, ashamed nation ready to come to the diplomatic confessional. He is closing Gitmo within one year, has suspended trials there, and dismissed the charges against the U.S.S. Cole plotter. [He] has just put our money where his mouth is and is using $20.3 million to bring in Palestinian refugees from Gaza…[he] had the gall to pronounce the so-called economic stimulus bill absolutely free of `earmarks’ and `make-do work’…but according to the Congressional Budget Office [this bill] will do worse to our overall economy than no government action whatsoever.”

And Obama has done all this with the predictable double-speak that characterizes malevolent intention, i.e., touting transparency while concealing everything, speaking of integrity while appointing crooks and incompetents riddled with conflicts-of-interest, supporting energy independence while killing off-shore and domestic oil-drilling and nuclear power, and feigning optimism while he speaks of impending “catastrophe” in order to push through a pork-laden, trillion-dollar-plus Stimulus plan that rewards the corrupt voter-fraud organization Acorn with billions and unions with discriminatory union-only labor agreements, paves the way for socialized medicine, and threatens to take away the most cherished rights of We The People.

As blogger Eric Gurr has said: “We still talk about the health care crisis, the environmental crisis, the oil crisis, the banking crisis. Let me tell you my friends you are about to learn the meaning of the only crisis that matters, the survival crisis.”      

You can be sure that the sad-lonely-angry two-year-old, the jealous-confused-resentful 10-year-old, the self-conscious- cheated-victimized adolescent, and the man who found solace in and identified with his hate-America mentors is now determined to redeem all of his demons.

Unfortunately, he is acting out his rage on free-market capitalism, a free press, property and gun rights, a limited constitutional government, protection of the unborn, and everything else that is good and great about our country.

This is Obama’s revenge!

     The comments from the Obama people regarding the unrepentent terrorist William Ayers and his relationship with Sen. Barack Obama is that “Barack was only eight years old when Ayers did those things”. Personally, I find that comment insulting to the intellect of America as a whole.

     Just like they don’t get the point on the “Joe the Plumber” questions, choosing instead to vet the plumber more than they have vetted Obama, the Obama media and the Obama campaign does not get the point about Ayers. It is not that Obama “knows” Ayers, it is that he has not been forthright and honest about the relationship, and even moreso, he has not been honest in their shared philosophies.

     Under an Obama presidency, God forbid, the Senator is encouraging a $4000.00 tuition tax credit in exchange for volunteer duty in community organizations or the military. This plan is just a bit shy of Ayer’s educational philosophy that says that all young people should be “drafted” into a time period of community service. How ironic that this terrorist who waged war on America during the draft era of the Vietnam War espouses draft into community service, which includes the military. Further, with regard to the tuition tax credit, Obama has obviously not checked with David Axelrod to find out what his son’s tuition is at the University of Michigan!

      Obama wanted us to believe that Ayers was just a man in the neighborhood. If their relationship was that distant, why would Ayers ask Obama to “blurb” one of his books for him?

    It appears that the relationship was so much “just neighbors”, that Obama appeared at a discussion forum with Ayers and others, organized by a Michelle Obama,  to discuss the concepts of Ayer’s book “A Kind and Just Parent”, regarding the juvenile justice system:

Just a few weeks before this review (Obama’s review of Ayer’s book) was published in the Chicago Tribune, Obama and Ayers appeared together on a panel about juvenile justice organized by Michelle Obama on November 20, 1997:

Children who kill are called “super predators,” “people with no conscience,” “feral pre-social beings” — and “adults.”

William Ayers, author of A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court (Beacon Press, 1997), says “We should call a child a child. A 13-year-old who picks up a gun isn’t suddenly an adult. We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun? Where did it come from?”

Ayers, who spent a year observing the Cook County Temporary Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago, is one of four panelists who will speak on juvenile justice at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the C-Shop. The panel, which marks the 100th anniversary of the juvenile justice system in the United States, is part of the Community Service Center’s monthly discussion series on issues affecting the city of Chicago. The event is free and open to the public.

Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent seven years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher at the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher at the Detention Center.

     A candidate of CHANGE: A Candidacy of Transparency!!

Thank you Sen. Obama for being open and forthright so we can make informed decisions on Election Day!!

     “Transparency”, “Open”, “Different Kind of Campaign”

     These are all words and phrases that Sen. Barack Obama has used to describe the type of candidate that he wanted to be in this election. Sen. McCain has been accused of running a negative attack campaign, and inciting racial tones. Yet McCain has refrained from discussing Rev. Wright, and has pointed NOT to Obama’s ties to terrorist Bill Ayers BUT to Obama’s lack of candor about the alliance with Ayers, ACORN, and others. Obama, on the other hand, has not been followed through on his statements and promises of being “open and transparent.”

Obama training for ACORN

     Would you vote for Obama if you knew he was a member of the Socialist Party, known in Chicago in the 90’s as the New Party?

      On numerous websites that had been in Google’s archives, articles about Obama’s ties to the Socialist agenda through the New Party and the Democratic Socialists of America have been well documented. It seems that Obama forgot to have those scrubbed from the World Wide Web.

     Would you vote for a Obama if you knew that he is refusing to release his school records from Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard?

      The campaigns for the Presidency are like a job interview, and most applications, you not only list past work experience, but you education as well. In addition to that, to apply for Bar membership, these documents would have to be provided as well.

     It has been well written that John McCain did not graduate at the top of his class at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. In fact it was near the bottom. There are conflicting reports about Obama’s educational skills, and whether his academic history at Columbia was sufficient to have qualified for admission to Harvard without Khalid Al-Mansour asking Percy Sutton of New York to write a letter on behalf of Obama due to Sutton’s Harvard connections.

      Would you vote for Obama if you knew that he has refused to produce his “vault” birth certificate to be verified, but instead posted a forged document in conjunction with the leftist blogsite Daily Kos?

     While I find David Axelrod to be arrogant and obnoxious, I am sure that he is intelligent enough to have foreseen that with Obama’s biography, there were going to be questions about his heritage, his lineage, his citizenship.

     It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever that the only media that the Obama team addressed the birth certificate issue with was the Daily Kos, especially when mainstream media is fawning over him. Unless the production of the vault birth certificate and his Indonesian records are going to reveal more untruths, like his initial Ayer’s answers, then it would seem that it would be most prudent to simply supply the information.

     Obviously, with the increased traffic on attorney Philip Berg’s website regarding his lawsuit challenging Obama’s eligibility to run for POTUS, it would seem that the interest in the answer to this part of Obama’s biography are finally growing. With 22 days until the election, if Obama is elected, we could be facing a Constitutional Crisis that could have been avoided by his openness and the media doing their job of vetting the candidate.

     Would you vote for Obama if you knew that he has downplayed his role in ACORN, or that his campaign gave ACORN $832,000 for voter registration assistance (which the campaign initially reported as an expense for sound and lighting; “an error”), and ACORN’s activities are now being investigated in at least 12 states?

     The ACORN investigations cannot be labeled as partisan attacks. The Nevada investigation was begun at the behest of a Democratic Secretary of State. ACORN was active in Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign. in 1992, Obama said he worked with Project Vote in the Chicago area on voter registrations, not ACORN. However, both organizations’ records show they were at the same location.

     So, what exactly is the bottomline? To ask these questions is not stoking the coals of racism! To ask these questions is to verify the thin resume of a candidate whose record does not support the claims that he has made in his campaign. Because the economy has become a major focal point, and because McCain is a member of the party that presently occupies the White House, the Democratic candidate is bolstered by those main factors. But with such lack of candor from Obama, he should not receive the “free pass” that the media and the Democratic party have so freely issued to him.

       Louis Farrakhan may claim him as the Messiah, but to average Joe SixPack, he still needs to provide proof to back up his just words!!
