Obama's 3 Big Lies
His Plan to Destroy the GOP

Urgent Message From Scott Wheeler
Executive Director
The National Republican Trust PAC

Dear Reader:

Let me tell you the real reason Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pushed through the biggest spending bill in history - without proper debate, without Republican input, and without any public scrutiny at all.

Simply, they are trying to turn the United States into a one-party country
and to put the Republican Party out of business once and for all.

The massive appropriation called a stimulus - some $787 billion of your money - is really a political war chest for the Democrats.

They want to change the face of American politics forever, and they want to use your taxpayer money to do it.

They want to use billions from our treasury to reward their political friends - and have huge amounts of cash to dole out before the 2010 and 2012 elections.

Some people have wondered why, if the country is in dire need of emergency "stimulus," most of the money appropriated by this law will not even be spent this year.

Instead, spending will go on for five to 10 years.

There is no mystery here, as the answer is simple: These billions in taxpayer funds will fund the Democratic political machine for many years to come.

Chicago Machine Takes Over Washington

You must remember - the media won't tell you this - that Barack Obama is a product of the corrupt political machine in Chicago headed by Mayor Richard Daley.

Chicago is run as a one-party city. The Democratic political machine and the government are one in the same.

Just like we saw recently in Congress, there is no real debate in Chicago. Deals are brokered in the back rooms among the ward leaders, the mayor and their cronies.

What the political machine decides, the public has to accept it. The city council serves simply as a rubber stamp - much the same way the Congress just acted for Obama.

And public money in Chicago is used to protect and serve the interests of the machine.

Obama - as I will reveal to you with the stimulus plan - is simply replicating the Chicago machine in Washington.

It is a frightening thought because our freedoms depend on a vibrant two-party system.

But that's what you believe, not what Obama and his crew believe.

Barack Obama and his Chicago gang, which includes his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, also a congressman from the Chicago machine, have a starkly different view.

They want a one-party system headed by a strong man.

We at The National Republican Trust PAC are deeply troubled not only by how much the stimulus plan spends but also the way it was implemented.

We just witnessed how the basic and open democratic process of our republic was flouted.

We fear that the actions by Obama and Congress that we just witnessed threaten the very foundation of our republic.

Consider that we have long believed America is the greatest democracy in the world.

Yet Congress passed the largest spending bill in its history - by essentially suspending vital democratic processes, including debate and public examination of the pending law.

We know that the Democrats, working late into the night, secretly agreed to a "compromise" bill among themselves - and then refused even to share it with Republicans or the public until just hours before the bill went to the floor for a vote.

The final stimulus bill was 1,079 pages long. We know Barack Obama never read the bill.

Many members of Congress have admitted not one senator or congressman even read the bill before they voted for it!

The Democrats say they suspended normal procedures because the country so desperately needed to avoid what Barack Obama said was an economic "catastrophe."

The bill apparently was so urgent that the Democrats even excluded Republican leaders from any involvement in negotiations on it.

When, in our republic, does Congress simply vote on a bill when its members have no idea what it says?

And, how could congressional leaders like Pelosi and Reid, as well as President Obama, present a monumental law but not allow even one day of scrutiny by Congress, its staffs or the public?

Big Lie No. 1: The Emergency

They told us that the country is in such a dire situation that it was an emergency.

That was Big Lie No. 1: The bill was not an emergency measure.

This was a ruse. They falsely claimed it was an emergency bill to cut off all debate.

The lie about the urgency was made clear when President Obama, rather than immediately signing the bill, went on vacation to celebrate Valentine's Day with his wife in Chicago. [Amazingly he had been in Washington less than a month before he took his first vacation!]

In fact, Obama took almost four days to sign this "urgent" bill.

Big Lie No. 2: Immediate Stimulus

And then there is Big Lie No. 2: The bill offered immediate help to our ailing economy.

The truth: The bill does not offer significant, immediate stimulus.

Most of the stimulus money won't even be spent this year, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office!

And the CBO has warned that the bill actually will hurt long-term economic growth.

Infrastructure programs, including items such as $8 billion for a high-speed train between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, will take a decade or longer to complete - if environmentalists ever let the project begin.

Republican traitor Arlen Specter, who backed the stimulus bill, got more than $6 billion in the bill for "medical research" - another lulu that has nothing to do with immediate economic stimulus.

Big Lie No. 3: Bipartisan Support

Then there is Big Lie No. 3: This bill was a bipartisan effort to save the economy.

It was anything but.

Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham said bluntly: "If this is going to be bipartisanship, the country's screwed."

Indeed, every Republican in the House voted against the bill, along with six courageous Democratic congressmen.

In the Senate, almost every Republican opposed the bill except three liberals: Sens. Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins and Arlen Specter.

Obama promised he would change the "old politics" of Washington. Instead, he is playing hardball partisan Democratic politics of the Chicago type.

He has used the weakening economy as his Reichstag fire event to get to pass an incredible amount of money so he could funnel huge amounts of pork and political payoffs to his Democratic cronies and allies.

And now, he is even talking about a second stimulus program! Why not? Congress just passed his first bill without even reading it! What a joke . . .

The Real Purpose: Abolish the GOP

I have no doubt what the real purpose of the stimulus bill was.

Simply, it was to lay the ground work of the remaking of America's political system into a one-party system.

Yes, a one-party socialist state that destroyed countries like Mexico.

We have seen what one-party rule has done to cities like Cleveland, Detroit, other cities - and corrupt Chicago.

The media will never tell you this, but that's the real agenda behind the Obama stimulus bill.

This is why so little of the stimulus is spent now, but spread out over several years.

This means Obama and Democrats will have hundreds of billions to disburse to their supporters, creating a new party cadre that will help them win re-election in 2010 and 2012.

Don't believe me?

Well, we all know the fraud perpetrated by groups like ACORN to register Democratic voters.

In the run-up to the 2009 election, millions of new "voters" were registered â€" and it clearly helped elect Obama â€" and gave the Democrats big majorities in the House and Senate.

Their game plan for 2008 worked. Now they want to use public funds - our tax dollars - to pay for more of their political activities.

For example, the final stimulus bill gives $3 billion to groups like ACORN.

Consider that, in 2008, Obama claimed that he raised $750 million for his campaign. Compared with that amount, ACORN's $3 billion is staggering.

No doubt, these billions will help ACORN in its political work of "community organizing" - a euphemism for Democratic activitism.

But it's not just ACORN who is getting "stimulus."

The bulk of the Obama stimulus goes directly to the powerful government employee unions that helped get Obama elected and are the backbone, the shock troops, of the Democratic Party.

Amazingly, it's been estimated that half of the stimulus appropriation directly benefits government employee and service employees union that played key roles in Obama's election.

Second, the bill gives tens of billions to state and local governments to dole out to their cronies. This means there will be even less accountability by Congress.

And then there are massive payoffs to the special interests to the Democratic Party, with giveaways such as $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts, $300 million for new cars for government bureaucrats, $1.2 billion for "youth activities," tens of billions for "green, environmental and energy programs" - they even include $3.7 billion to help "green" military bases and another $125 million to restore "abandoned mines."

Shockingly, the bill creates 33 new government programs!

The stimulus money will give the Democrats the opportunity to become the dominant political party for the next generation.

Our Plan to Stop Obama

Despite the massive political payouts Obama, Reid and Pelosi are funneling to their allies across the country, they can still be stopped.

The polls show Americans want a two-party system. They don't want corrupt, Chicago-style politics in Washington.

They don't want their taxpayer funds used for political shenanigans and payoffs.

We at The National Republican Trust PAC want to expose the incredible rip-off the stimulus bill will be to the taxpayers.

If Americans knew that the bill would place an additional $9,400 in debt upon each household in America, they would be appalled.

If Americans knew the extent to which this bill is going for political payoffs to groups like ACORN, they would be outraged.

We know that Americans will wake up to what Congress has perpetrated on them with this stimulus.

But we also know we can't rely on the media to tell the facts.

This is why we want to keep up our media efforts to expose Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

We now know they have a radical plan for the nation.

There are already calls among Democrats for a new Fairness Doctrine to close down talk radio and hosts like Rush, Hannity, Boortz, Beck, Savage and others. (Senate worked on this today!)

The Democrats are already talking about legalizing 12 million illegals, making them citizens and voters overnight.

They know that, if they do this, they will instantly change the political landscape in the nation for a generation or more.

I may be a Democrat.... but this is a truth that we all need to know about. I believe in at least a two-party system.

This bill really irked me! Why no discussion, no chance for congress to read it before voting on it...


I pray for Obama, that he honors his pledges that he made during the election process... but so far, he is failing big time!

I will post more of the real stuff that is found in his bills, as I find out about them.

I know about the danger of a one-party system, we have it in the area of Ohio that I live in. Republications and Independent candidates have to run as a Democrat if they even want the people in the area to consider them.

And the corruption is widespread here. And the Democratic Party used these same type of tactics here. We were 2 party, not any more! Same thing in Detroit!

Take me with you! But don't get sick and need major surgery there. They have a messed up National Health care system where most Canadians end up waiting forever for surgery, if the Govt. agrees you are worth spending the money on (don't be old and need expensive surgery... you won't get it)

Most of my Canadian friends come to the US to have their surgery!

This is exactly the kind of thing I tried to warn people about before the election. Obama and his cronies want to make this a socialist nation, and make everyone dependant on the government. The minute we let that happen, we lose all of our individual rights. Obama and his gang are even trying to outlaw handguns....period. As I understand it, the only people that will be allowed to own a firearm is someone that had it before his new law goes into effect, and even then, you will only be allowed to own small caliber rifles. Like a .22 is going to really do any real damage if someone is breaking into your home? Puh-lease!

Bottom line is...Obama is only looking out for himself and his party, and basically telling the rest of us to rot in hell. If the Democrats we have in office now maintain control, it will only be a matter of time before we are equal to a Marxist nation. Welcome to the USSA. But don't say I never tried to warn the Obama supporters....I got my ass chewed big time and virtually called a racist because I wouldn't vote for him. It had nothing to do with the color of his skin...it was all about his policies and political agenda. Maybe now everyone will see what I was talking about and actually pay more attention to the direction our nation is Really heading.

Lap....Canada's not the answer...we all need to pack up and move to Austrailia or Switzerland...no one messes with the Swiss...they have those cool little knives and great hot cocoa! Nod :haha:

I agree 100 percent;


However; The GOP has themselves to blame; McCain had no business being the party nominee[ he became to them like Bob Dole was to the party in 1996; and Palin had no business being his running mate; Who is she? Nobody even knew her name until late last summer]


We need a third party candidate in 2012 to challenge the Messiah [ Obama]

The GOP has no one that can or will

Otherwise we are stuck with 8 years of fucking socialist bullshit

Whew

I thought that's who you said you were going to vote for. I don't mind him. I couldn't stand Barr though. He said he was a Libertarian but his former extreme right-wing social viewpoints (which he says he has changed) sort of scared me away from him.

Libertarian is a good party though. Socially they are often more liberal than Democrats which is good since I'm socially very liberal. Economically they're conservative but not super right-wing which is okay since I'm only a little bit left economically. Social issues are more important to me than economic ones so I'd vote for a Libertarian if they were further left socially than the Democratic nominee.

The reason I did not vote for Paul is he's too moderate socially which is too bad because he gains quite a few points from me for having an M.D. which is something I find quite admirable in anyone, particularly a politician.

He's a real doctor, too. Not one of those English professors that insist on being called Dr. So-and-so. If there is an emergency in a public place and someone yells "is there a doctor" you aren't a doctor unless you volunteer your services there. Therefore the English professor is no doctor.
End rant.

President Barack Obama dislikes Britain, but he's keen to meet the Queen
Posted By: Iain Martin at Mar 6, 2009 at 12:44:22

President Obama has been rudeness personified towards Britain this week. His handling of the visit of the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to Washington was appalling. First Brown wasn't granted a press conference with flags, then one was hastily arranged in the Oval office after the Brits had to beg. Obama looked like he would rather have been anywhere else than welcoming the British leader to his office and topped it all with his choice of present (*) for the PM. A box of 25 DVDS including ET, the Wizard of Oz and Star Wars? Oh, give me strength. We do have television and DVD stores on this side of the Atlantic. Even Gordon Brown will have seen those films too often already.

This was coupled with Michelle Obama's casual choice of gifts for the Brown sons - matching models of the helicopter which ferry her husband around. While Sarah Brown had spent time choosing gifts for the Obama girls, Michelle had clearly sent an aide to the White House gift shop at the last moment.

All in all, he doesn't think much of us, as I explained in my post here earlier this week.

But what's this? Something, suddenly, seems to have made the Obama White House perk up and start to take an interest in the Brits. The Queen has invited the President to tea when he's here for the G20 in April. And he's in through the front door of Buckingham Palace faster than a Harley Davidson roaring along Route 66.

Note how the coolness of Team Obama disappears when a bit of regal glamour is introduced into the equation. He might not like the Brits, but he can recognise a global superstar when he encounters one. He wants to be associated with her. He's shameless.

(*) If Obama, or someone in his inner circle, had spent two minutes thinking about what present to get Brown then they could easily have come up with something appropriate. He likes books. He loves American history. Get him a signed first edition of a good Robert Dallek book such as the brilliant Flawed Giant on LBJ. Come to think of it, Obama should read it too, if he hasn't yet, as it reveals a great deal about how a Presidency can go so wrong.

Was 'Lady Macbeth' behind Barack Obama's snub of Gordon Brown?
Posted By: James Delingpole at Mar 5, 2009 at 12:58:55

On US radio's Garrison show today, I was asked for my reaction as a true born Englishman to President Obama's double insult - first the sending back of the Winston Churchill bust, then his snub to Gordon Brown. "Tough one. Really tough one," I said, torn - as most of surely are - between delight at seeing Brown roundly humiliated, and dismay at having the special relationship so peremptorily, cruelly and bafflingly ruptured.

Iain Martin is quite right here: no matter how utterly rubbish we have become as a nation in the Blair/Brown years, Britain's friendship is something Obama will come to regret having dispensed with so lightly. This was not the act of a global statesman, but of a hormonal teenager dismissing her bestest of best BFs for no other reason than that she felt like it and she can, so there.

What was the guy thinking? In researching my new book Welcome to Obamaland, I discovered that Obama's judgment is pretty dreadful - but this? My favourite theory so far - suggested by presenter Greg Garrison - was that it was a move calculated to please his Lady Macbeth. At the moment in Britain, we're still in the "Doesn't she look fabulous in a designer frock" stage of understanding of Michelle Obama. Gradually, though, we'll begin to realise that she is every bit the terrifying executive's wife that Hillary Clinton was. Or, shudder, Cherie Blair.

We may just LURVE Michelle's fashion sense. But Michelle doesn't reciprocate our affection, one bit. Her broad-brush view of history associates Brits with the wicked white global hegemony responsible for the slave trade. Never mind that a white, Tory Englishman - William Wilberforce - brought the slave trade to an end. Judging by her record, Michelle does not make room for such subtle nuance.

Consider her notorious statement that: "For the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country." Consider her (till-recently suppressed) Princeton thesis, "Princeton Educated Blacks And The Black Community."

In it she writes: "I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my white professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don't belong. Regardless of the circumstances underwhich I interact with whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be black first and a student second."

Here we see that she has mastered the authentic voice of grievance culture. She also - the thesis was written in 1985 - pre-empts the Macpherson report's ludicrous, catch-all definition of racism: "A racist incident is any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person." No matter how hard young Michelle's white undergraduate contemporaries try to be nice, it's not their behaviour that counts, but how Michelle feels.

More worrying, though, and dangerous, than young Michelle's desperate quest for validation through victimhood is the other strain within her thesis. "As I enter my final year at Princeton," she writes. "I find myself striving for many of the same goals as my White classmates - acceptance to a prestigious graduate or professional school or a high paying position in a successful corporation. Thus, my goals at Princeton are not as clear as before."

"Yes, exactly, you silly girl" you want to shriek at young Michelle as you give her a good shake. "It's called 'opening your mind', 'broadening your experience', 'allowing youthful dogma to be shaped by reality.' It's why people go to university, don't you know?"

I love it! The Brits see through the Obama's blowups!

first the sending back of the Winston Churchill bust

This was a big putdown! The Churchill bust was a gift to the US, not to the Obamas! They had a right to have it removed from the Oval Office and put in storage, but they did not have the right to send it back to England. This did not make us friends in our relationship between the two countries.

Hormonal teenager! whistle Yep!

They really don't thnk much of Michele Obama! (Neither do I)

Well, we knew this was coming! re-writing history to fit her beliefs!

This is a great problem. I dread the 4 years we have to put up with her "feelings". She makes Hillary seem like a loveable little ball of fuzz!
