Despite President Obama’s long history of criticizing the Bush administration for “sweetheart deals” with favored contractors, the Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned.

“Please volunteer to help in the race for my father’s seat”

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 15, 2010 03:51 PM

The Kennedy family still thinks it’s their seat, not the people’s seat.

Patrick Kennedy just e-mailed out the following SOS:

DCCC Rapid Response

Michelle –

I want to ask for your personal help in the Special Election for my father’s seat taking place in just 4 days.

The latest polls show Democrat Martha Coakley in the lead, but her Republican opponent is right on her heels in a race that represents the critical 60th vote for health insurance reform and the rest of President Obama’s agenda.

Please help us by making calls at Democratic National Headquarters in DC between now and Election Day on Tuesday. Together we can make thousands of calls that will put this great candidate over the top.

Please sign up to volunteer in DC.

Thank you so much. Your efforts will make a big difference in this race!

Sincerely,

Rep. Patrick Kennedy

     AG Eric Holder and Pres. Barack Obama insist that trying the 5 9-11 Terrorists in New York City in our civilian judicial system will showcase our system of justice to “the World”. Instead, “the World” is already weighing in on how they want the trial handled:

Germany, which does not have a death penalty, provided evidence for the trial on the condition that it could not be used to support a death sentence.”

from Newsbusters:

According to The Huffington Post, Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck and other right-of-center stars that regularly dominate the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Bestsellers List are – or should be – in a league of their own.

No, that isn’t Arianna Huffington’s blog heaping praise on conservative authors. It’s a literal suggestion. With right-leaning books and authors holding so many spots on the list, and more to come – former Sarah Palin, former Dick Cheney and President George W. Bush all have books due out -Huffington Post suggests conservatives should have their own category to differentiate from other works of non-fiction.

In a Nov. 9 entry on The Huffington Post that laments Fox News host Glenn Beck pulling a feat not done before – holding the number one spot on The New York Times’ four lists: hardcover fiction, hardcover non-fiction, paperback non-fiction and children’s – they suggest a separate category altogether, not for political non-fiction, but conservative non-fiction.

A group of red shirt-wearing Chavista thugs show up at a farm and seize the farm in the name of the government, under the pretext that the 103 hectare farm is “idle land” and that the law allows them to take it over for “food production.”

The farmer protests politely, explaining that he’s been raising cattle on his farm for 23 years. He is rebuffed by another guy, who says, “this is not going to be a debate; this is a public act approved by the Venezuelan people. I’m governor and I’m here to ensure public order. There won’t be a debate, I ask you to listen to the document, after which the public will take charge of the land.”

When the farmer’s wife protests, he tells her to discuss it in court.

Chavez controls the judiciary.

The farmer is told to sign the form, and then to gather the animals so they can be accounted for.

When another one of the people who lived at the farm tries to ask a question, the man who identified himself as the governor insists that “this is not a debate, this is not a meeting, and if there’s any disruption, the public force is here,” pointing to the crowd in red shirts.

This story, with ties into the recent ACORN video revelations, and the lack of openness about their finances, is very involved, with references to the emails from a NYT reporter during last year’s Presidential campaign. The final email says it all:” The Obama campaign is screaming and yelling; I am calling a halt to my efforts“:

from the July 4th Dallas Tea Party:

Here’s an excerpt from my Dallas Tea Party remarks on July 4 in celebration of today’s events across the country:

I’ve been reading in the newspapers about how the Tea Party movement is “losing steam.” I’ve been told by my colleagues in the mainstream, lame-stream, drive-by, state-SPONSORED media that you have died.

I’ve been told by the smug vulgarians on cable TV (yes, that’s you Anderson Cooper) and I’ve been told by the bigoted know-nothings in Hollywood (yes, that’s you Janeane Garofalo) that you all are nothing more than a teeny, tiny minority of fringe extremists.

I’ve been told that…thousands upon thousands of committed, peaceful, principled sons and daughters of liberty [do not] exist.

Well, I am happy to report to the rest of the country that you Tea Party Patriots are alive and kicking and moving full steam ahead in the common defense of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

They want you gone.

They want you silent and out of sight.

They want you marginalized, demonized, and demoralized.

Will you let them?

…On July 3, 1776, John Adams expressed his wish to his wife Abigail that Independence Day would be “celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.” He hoped it would “be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty” and “solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.“

“My fellow Americans.” There are few words sweeter and more stirring than those three words. “My fellow Americans.”

Whether native-born or naturalized, we [are] united in citizenship, joined by common purpose, bound eternally as heirs of our founding fathers’ legacy.

We are not here merely for the games, sports, bells, and bonfires. We are here because we recognize the grave importance and civic duty to remember the reason for the July 4 season.

And the reason for the season is: LIBERTY.

The reason for the season is: LIBERTY.

As you all know, I am the daughter of legal immigrants from the Philippines. They stood in line, took their citizenship tests, filed mountains of paperwork, and — speaking in English — swore allegiance to the United States. The more- than-two-century-old oath of American citizenship declares, in part:

“I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty … I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic… I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”

For millions of naturalized Americans by choice, the oath of allegiance is sacred. It is as sacred to them as the very first oath of allegiance our forefathers first swore to at Valley Forge. It is a solemn public commitment to embrace and defend American laws and institutions. The rights and responsibilities that accompany this coveted status are earned privileges, not entitlements.

That inheritance of rights as well as duties is in my bloodstream and in yours. Our skin may be brown, yellow, black, or white. But as fellow Americans, my fellow Americans, we share this transcendent fidelity to liberty.

On July 4, 1821, John Quincy Adams reminded us that our interest in commemorating the Declaration of Independence was not merely in enumerating its list of grievances against British tyranny. But more importantly, our lasting interest lies in commemorating the “principles which [the Declaration of Independence] proclaims.”

This extraordinary document was, JQ Adams said, “the first solemn declaration by a nation of the only legitimate foundation of civil government. It was the corner stone of a new fabric, destined to cover the surface of the globe. It demolished at a stroke the lawfulness of all governments founded upon conquest. It swept away all the rubbish of accumulated centuries of servitude. It announced in practical form to the world the transcendent truth of the unalienable sovereignty of the people.”

This transcendent truth, enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and embodied by America over 233 years, has indeed covered the surface of the globe. While we too often take it for granted, it thrives in the hearts and minds of fellow freedom lovers in China, Cuba, Honduras, Iraq, Iran, and around the world.

Every day should be July 4. Every day should be a day to count our blessings and marvel at the gifts our God and country have bestowed — and to which we have all been entrusted to protect and pass on to our children and their children.

At an Atlanta Tea Party in February, some kids held up a popular tongue-in-cheek sign that read: “When I grow up, I want to be free.”

What their parents certainly know, and what our Founding Fathers made clear to their oppressors and the world, is that we are born free.

Freedom is not for government to give.

But it is for all of us to ensure that government does not take away.

On this first principle, we can afford no moderation. The business of protecting our home life from meddling intrusion, our homeland from foreign invasion, and our commerce from reckless restriction is not to be conducted in dulcet tones with bent spines and bowed heads.

The founding fathers did not intend for us to politely implore the masters of government for freedom like oliver twist begging Mr. bumble to fill his meager bowl with more gruel:

“Please sir, I want some more.”

Only extreme vigilance – forceful, rabble-rousing, aggressive, unyielding vigilance, can safeguard our inalienable rights. And in practicing this extremism, we have nothing – NOTHING – to apologize for. Ever.

We have spent many months enumerating our grievances against the soft tyranny of a new age. And tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow we will continue to do so.

But today, we have no time to despair. There is no room for gloom. you have been mocked and derided and smeared. you will be mocked and derided and smeared some more.

But our forefathers have suffered far worse. And so have the men and women on the front lines over the ages who have given arms and legs, sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, husbands and wifes.

John Adams knew the price they would pay, and yet maintained hope, real hope: “I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory.”

We take strength in each other. We take inspiration from the past.

We publicly declare our independence from the culture of dependency.

We publicly declare our independence from the false guardians of the free market.

We publicly declare our independence from the culture of corruption.

We publicly declare our independence from the poseurs of personal responsibility in both major political parties.

We should take these obligations freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help us God.

*************************************

LET IT BE KNOWN from this day forward that a new day has dawned on the American spirit; that the complacency of time and of success has been turned back into the vitality that makes this a Great Nation; that those who have fought so valiantly for and to protect our freedoms in the brutality that is war shall not have done so in vain; that we will honor our fallen heroes by preserving the Liberty guaranteed to us by our forefathers, and to insure that we hold our government accountable to the pwoers that were given to them and to have them respect the powers that we retained to ourselves; that no government shall be so empowered as to enslaven the entire Nation, and to create an indebtedness to our unborn next generations- essentially taxing them without representation for they have yet to be born into this Great Nation to have a voice in their representation; that we will honor the words of our Constitution; we shall be the Americans that the world has always admired; we shall be the Americans that our forefathers envisioned us to be!

 

John Harwood: Parents Who Object To Obama’s Speech Aren’t Smart Enought To Raise Their Kids

I see, the problem is the parents, not Obama…
John Harwood of NBC:
“I got to tell you, as someone who has covered Washington a long time, this is one of the most ridiculous controversies I’ve ever seen, and so far as I can tell, the biggest danger to kids in this whole thing is alot of the parents complaining aren’t smart enough to raise them very effectively, cause if you think that a President coming into your kids schools saying work hard, stay in school is a danger to your kids, you’ve got some problems”…
