Sarah Palin reads this blog regularly. I used to get hits from her home town and the state capital of Juneau when she was there. When her son graduated from infantry training school at Ft. Benning, GA with Sarah and Todd present, I got my first hit from . . . Ft. Benning. You're always welcome Sarah!
Bookmark this site and return often! You're always welcome -- even if your name isn't . . . Sarah Palin.
Friday a.m. I had a short post up at 2:30 a.m. (above) that said I had information (from Sharon in Oklahoma and one other GOP operative) that Gov. Palin and her two teen-age daughters and perhaps others had flown from Anchorage to Dayton, where she would be named today (Friday) McCain's running mate. The story came from people who put two-and-two together, and the media was still falling all over itself at 11 a.m. this morning.
Charles Krauthammer said at 11 McCain should choose Fred Thompson. Good God!At that point, I said to my wife we already had enough old white guys (Biden, McCain) and we needed a woman, preferably Sarah . I went to sleep believing it was Sarah and woke up to her smiling face on the screen on FOX (and others?).
I never bought the Campaign's decoy statement that, well everybody on the list was flying in (Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, the Easter Bunny, Peter Rabbit?)
More tomorrow (Saturday).

I'm asking everyone to join Clintons4McCain, NoBama Mission, and RealDemocratsUSA (all pro-McCain). If they want, people should e-mail me (at TalkTop65@aol.com ), and I promise to provide specific information within 24 hours of whom to contact and what to do. Please provide your state and the nearest city. You are very much wanted and appreciated.
Also helpful: on http://johnmccain.com, there is a link for volunteers in the Citizens for McCain effort. Kathy Morrison's sites are very useful, including: http://purplepeoplevote.blogspot.com and http://mccainbloggerresources.blogspot.com. If you're a blogger and want to join NoBama Mission Bloggers (and get USEFUL material on blog tactics), e-mail me at: TalkTop65@aol.com. If you e-mail, I will get back to you within a reasonable period of time.
In the meantime, the best thing you can do is to write e-mails to friends, family, and associates. Communicate your support for Sen. John McCain. You don't have to give a lot of reasons for your backing McCain -- one or two will do. Let them know they're not alone.
You might emphasize McCain's experience and, if you were a Hillary backer, highlight Mrs. Clinton's statement that she and McCain had "a lifetime of experience" and BHO had only "a speech he delivered in 2002." You can also use President Clinton's statement that John McCain "has given everything he could to his country -- except his life."
Frankly, John McCain is an authentic American hero -- and Barack Obama is a classic Chicago politician. 'Nough said.
If you want hard-hitting material on the election, keep visting this site. Also, go to http://talkstraight.org, which is devoted to separating fact from fiction.
We intend to win this election, but we can't do it without your help.
Thanks -- and God bless.

My very good friends....this is a hard letter to write but I must.Many of us have been communicating back and forth for over a year on Hillary's behalf. However, I once said I will never back a liar, anyone who supports Obama, makes a fool out of us or do anything on her behalf. I had to wait until I heard it from Hillary herself.....she is backing Obama and next she will turn over all her delegates to Obama and tell us ,who always stood by her, to go and vote for the most corrupt politician in our history. You know how I was raised and who I am----I could never do that and thus will just vote for McCain in November. I will say one more time that Obama is a very dangerous man who cannot and must not be trusted----he will(I swear to you) destroy this country.I will, although it breaks my heart, stop communications with everyone....she has broken my heart and my Family who worked so hard and donated a great deal of money. I only wish she had just not backed Obama...I would have still respected her.May God Bless each one of you and your families. Good health always. Please, Please take care.I will see you at the voting booth in Nov. I'll be the guy pulling the McCain lever.
God love you all
Mary and Charles
Steve adds: This whole situation is so damn SHAMEFUL. I have been in touch with these people for about a month. As the wife in Death of a Salesman puts it, "Attention! Attention must be paid." However, the woman whose attention they wanted -- and they even got their priest to send a letter to her -- doesn't give a rat's behind about the good people who were so badly deceived. Shame on you, Hillary Rodham Clinton! And there was the "Big Dog," smiling and clapping as she endorsed the man who labeled her -- and him --racists. Does it get any uglier? What Mary and Charles realized tonight is that their favorite candidate is not a good human being.
The critical factor in determining the election is if the "Hillary Supporters now for McCain" keep on growing, as they have been. Then, Obama cannot win the election. McCain'’s use of the "Hillary commercials" and the strong presence of "defrocked" Wisconsin Hillary Delegate Debra Bartoshevich in McCain’s campaign are major positives.
Note: if you go to the Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio program (archived) two Saturdays ago, you'll hear an interview with Debra Bartoshevich and Bev Perlson (founder of TheBand of Mothers. I urge you to listen to these two strong women -- American patriots -- discuss why they're strongly "NoBama." http://blogtalkradio.com/clintons4mccain
Hillary, Bill, and Pollster Scott Rasmussen
"I have a lifetime of experience. Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience. Barack Obama has a speech he gave in 2002." I can't imagine that HRC really wants us to ignore everything that was said and done over the last 18 months.
"The Obama played the race card . . . on me." (Bill Clinton)"Every day since Joe Biden was selected John McCain has picked up a little ground." (Scott Rasmussen, pollster)
"8.8 million more women than men voted in the 2004 election." (FOX News) McCain's chances in the General Election: It is winnable if we keep reaching out to as many people as possible -- friends, family, political allies, and people now "on-the-fence." I'm tired. We're all tired. We can rest up starting November .
Roger, Charles Say "Hillary, Please Don't!"
The following are e-mails from two broken-hearted Hillary Supporters dismayed at her actions. The first is from Roger, who donated a significant amount of his scarce resources to Hillary's Campaign.
He says, "If Hillary Clinton releases those delegates before the end of the convention, I will consider that as fraud! We know he can not get the nomination without that [release of Hillary delegates] and there was a hidden agenda from the start to just fleece Americans out of their money. I am demanding a full refund for every cent I contributed! I have sent her a letter to that effect. If she announces [her withdrawal] or in anyway releases her delegates, I expect a full refund! I am asking the same of Joe Biden also seeing how he lied to me about Obama. FLAT OUT LIED!
The following e-mail was written by Charles, another staunch Hillary backer. Like so many Hillary backers, he's have a hard time accepting what he sees and hears.
We know you [Hillary] were threatened, but don’t sell us down the river . We worked hard for one year with a vast network of hundreds of thousands of supporters of yours (and satellite groups). We gave money, time, and effort 24/7.
Please don’t do what you are about to do [ask your supporters to back Obama].The second you encourage your supporters to back a person like Obama (the most dishonest, corrupt person in politics)...our group will go through with our plans of working even harder to elect McCain....the Party will not be united.
We ask you one more time...PLEASE HILLARY...blind-side the corrupt people who treated you like dirt and either tell your people to vote for McCain or simply walk on and off the stage without saying a word.
Obama will never win, I promise. Please realize that to give your delegates to Obama goes against everything you promised us in the Primaries. Don’t add insult to injury.
Now Obama gives Fla. and Mich. the full vote [at the Convention], knowing it doesn't mean anything since you're going to turn around and give them to him. Surely the people are not that stupid in both states to buy this "generosity" from Obama, a pathological liar.
How about spreading this word and helping me?

At videoboard, you can find out how to get great videos of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and various other Democrats during the Primaries. They're the videos and images Obama doesn't want you to see.
["And Obama's humiliation of Hillary Clinton continues . . . " Please scroll down to see new material about what Obama's saying about Hillary and his refusal to consider her for the vice-presidential slot.]
If you want a video widget for your blog, please go to the same site: http://videoboard.gop.com/. There, you can copy and paste the code. Notice the VideoBoard widget on my sidebar. At the web site, you'll find links to many videos. You'll also find out what Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton really think about the inexperienced Sen. Obama.
If you're looking for the shocking new piece on how the Obama campaign has gone after Criti Adkins, co-founder of Clintons4McCain and Nobama Mission, please scroll down to the previous column. It has drawn thousands of visitors, and I appreciate your interest in this story of the Obama Campaign's thuggery.
If you want to support Cristi, please join Clintons4McCain and Nobama Mission. As you may know, the Obama text-messages about the Biden announcement were a scam. They had nothing to do with informing people. They had everything to do with using surreptitious means to grab information -- esssentially to get individual's cell phone numbers. The "announcement" came several hours after the media had broken the news.
Hopefully, millions of people's cell phones will not be awakening them regularly at 3 a.m.
One of the best sites for revealing Obama's constant prevarications about his life and career is at: http://talkstraight.org/. It's definitely worth many visits.
Friday, August 22, 2008
[On Sunday, I'll reveal "Obama's VP Text-Message Scam." Was Obama really sending out 3 a.m. messages on his Biden choice? Of course not. He was deceiving people with an "information grab," gathering cell phone numbers from individuals he'll contact many times -- perhaps even at 3 a.m.]
Cristi is one of the most effective "Hillary Supporters", a woman who's working 14-hour-days to ensure the defeat on Nov. 4 of the man she calls "Hussein." She calls him that because she believes -- correctly -- that he has only a tangential connection to American values. His history demonstrates that he's much more at home in Kenya than in mainstream America, which is too "bitter" for his rarified tastes.
Obama and his sycophants despise what Cristi, a co-founder of Clintons4McCain and NobamaMission, is doing, and they've responded by initiating a campaign of hatred and innuendo against her.
Cristi is a mom (two teenagers and a three-year-old), a wife, a veteran (former MP), and a nurse. The father of her two teenagers just came home from a combat tour in Afghanistan. In short, she's the kind of American with whom Obama and his fellow elitists have nothing in common.
Why does she bug Obams so much? Mainly because she's frequent guest on shows hosted by people by Neil Cavuto, Sean Hannity, Jim Bohannon. She's even been on the "Daily Show." Right now, she's headed to Denver to "Just Say No Deal" to Barack H. Obama. She's a force in contemporary politics.
For that reason, she's been the target of absurd attacks by bloggers who serve as cheerleaders for BHO. Many of the people reading this blog. Were you aware that Obama PAYS his bloggers? Most of them get roughly $7 an hour, and some apparently receive much more. That would come as news to people who visit their sites and believe they're getting something approximating "straight talk." In fact, those bloggers are presenting all the "news" that fits with the Obama agenda.
In our own NoBama Mission Bloggers, a brainchild of Cristi Adkins and others in the NoBama Mission effort, we will have 200 blogs by the end of this day. How many of them are paid by anyone? A grand total of zero. They are all volunteers -- just like me, just like Cristi, just like the other tens of thousand of people who center their lives around the NoBama effort.
One thing Cristi is asked is why she works with non-Democrats. Well, DUH! She founded Clintons4McCain. She didn't found Clintons4Nobody, or Clintons4theheckuvait. If you're against Obama with us, you're among friends.
The NoBama effort is perhaps the most diverse coalition in American history. It consists of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and even a stray Libertarian or two. In that effort, there are liberals, moderates, and conservatives. There are no far-left crazies or America-haters, unlike Obama's own scary group.
What binds our people of so many different views together is a commitment to the following statement: "Barack Obama is too inexperienced, too unqualified, too untrustworthy, and too dangerous to be POTUS." Anyone who shares that view is welcome in our coalition.
The hate campaign by Obama, his staffers, and his bought-and-paid for bloggers against Cristi is similar to the effort they waged against Hillary Clinton. Of course, she has been one of the more liberal members of the Clinton Administration and the U.S. Senate. Many Black members of Congress backed her bid for the presidency. Those who did so are now being punished by Obama at the Democratic National Convention. Charlie Rangel, one of the most important members of the House and a Clinton backer, has NOT been invited to speak.
For her efforts on behalf of civil rights and liberal causes, Hillary Clinton was branded by Obama and his surrogates as a warmonger, a liar, and a racist. Geraldine Ferraro, also a long-time proponent of civil rights, was also labeled a racist, as was President Bill Clinton.
Given this background by Obama and his minions, it's no surprise that Cristi Adkins is under attack. Of course, she isn't being defamed for her statements about Obama, all of which are factual. Instead, they're trying to bleed her to death with a thousand pinpricks. She's accused of saying this (maybe) once, or of knowing this person or someone else, or of advocating this-or-that.
Does Cristi head right to the front-lines, where the chances of taking political shrapnel are the greatest? If you've ever seen her in action, you know she does. Also, she "pushs the envelope." She takes after "Hussein" in creative, imaginative ways. Most of these efforts work, and some don't, which is par for the course with risk-takers.
The main "charge" against Cristi is that she once was in a business venture that didn't work out. Big deal. There are probably 150 million Americans, including this one, who are in the same boat.
In fact, Cristi -- my friend and political ally -- is one of the single most effective spokeswomen in America against Obama. As long as that remains the case -- and it will through November 4 -- Obama and his meanspirited, robotic followers will try to destroy her. In other words, they will try to "Hillary-boat" her, just as they did the junior Senator from New York.
I have news for the man Cristi calls "Hussein." You will not succeed. You will not win this election. You are up against people who will not rest until John McCain send you back to the Chicago political machine that spawned you.
What can the readers of this piece do in support of Cristi Adkins, American? You can go to Clintons4McCain and NoBama Mission and sign up as members of those organizations. Many thousands of people have already done. Please do it for Cristi -- and do it for America. Now.
Note: Below is the link to the Jim Bohannen show on which Cristi Adkins appeared. It's very much worth listening to.

If our country had a strong FBI and a strong CIA working together (which apparently was "illegal"), 9/11 probably would not have occurred. Under Bill Clinton, the notion was that the CIA was an anachronism, a relic of the Cold War. As for the FBI, it spent an inordinate amount of time chasing bank robbers -- and ignoring terrorists. The results were the first World Trade Center bombing, the destruction of Oklahoma's Murrah Building, and -- ultimately -- the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon.
As I mentioned previously, George W. Bush knew that responsibility for 9/11 lay with his predecessor, William Jefferson Clinton. During the later part of his presidency, Clinton was much more occupied with the Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones matters than with the more important Osama bin Laden matters. He focused more on a certain purple dress than on al Qaeda, and we Americans paid the price.
Sunday, August 17, 2008
George W. Bush didn't blame the Clinton Administration for 9/11 because he didn't want to split the country . . . no other reason
[I'll add to this much-viewed piece on Tuesday. It lost me a few (bubble-headed) friends who are Democrats frozen in perpetual adoration of the very fallible William Jefferson Clinton.]
My comments to a group of dyed-in-the-wool Democrats blasting away about George Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and others. The person I'm responding to mentioned her high regard for JFK, RFK, and Bill Clinton. I "begged to differ."
I think it's laughable for members of a Party about to nominate Barack Hussein Obama (of all people) as their choice for President to start coming up with the standard nonsense about the evils of Republicans.
I am somewhat of a fan of JFK, who never had a chance to accomplish a whole lot. Why are you a fan of RFK and Bill Clinton? I was very much alive during RFK's brief career as JFK's favorite brother, and I saw him as little more than a skillful demagogue.
As for Bill Clinton, he didn't confront anything remotely similar to what his successor has faced. He appointed George Tenant (an awful CIA director) and FBI Director Louie Freeh, one of the architects of the Waco disaster. What was the excuse for those appointments?
The Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers, Kathryn Willey, and Paul Jones episodes were public humiliations of Hillary Clinton. They rendered ridiculous Bill Clinton's claims to be an advocate for women.
Exaggerating the character and accomplishments of Bill Clinton is a serious flaw among Democrats.. Underestimating (and castigating) GWB is like a Democratic disease. Unlike most of his Democratic detractors, Bush loves his country -- and does everything in his power to protect it. He clearly values conscience and country ahead of political party. Can we say the same about any leading Democrat?
There were serious deficiencies in Clinton's CIA and FBI that led to 9/11 (and other disasters, including the first WTC bombing, the destruction of African embassies and the USS Cole attack). Gee, let's blame GWB while we sit there adoring the "Big Dog" who appointed Tenant and Freeh.
GWB did not blame Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, and other leading Democrats for allowing 9/11 to happen, although he probably should have. He refused to do so because he didn't want to split the country in a time of war.
I realize many Democrats have never given more than a passing thought to such things. They happen to be true, even though they may offend the faint-of-heart.
Jamie Gorelic, an awful member of the 9/11 Commission, was the assistant attorney-general in the Clinton Administration who came up with the idea that there must be a "wall of separation" between the intelligence and law enforcement agencies. That effort to appease the ACLU made it nearly impossible to prevent us from 9/11.
On the behavior of Bush's opponents: Is former nominee John Kerry, the rich boy who absolutely betrayed Hillary Clinton by supporting Obama -- in a state Clinton carried by 60-40 -- really a "good man?"
The endless scapegoating of GWB is disgusting. When among Hillary Supporters,I usually ignore the criticisms, but now that you guys -- Democrats -- have presented us with Barack Obama, the gloves go off.
In particular, about 9/11: That was primarily the fault of Bush's predecessor, Bill Clinton, as historians will be reminding your great-grandchildren. There has not been another terrorist attack in the U.S. since then, as we've all noticed. Who gets credit for that? Nancy Pelosi? Harry Reid? Donna Brazile? "It's the economy, stupid" was Bill Clinton's mantra.
No, "it's the al Qaeda, stupid." I realize, Keri (the Yahoo Group moderator) that any serious discussions of things like the Bush presidency make some people feel faint -- and offended, for God's sake. As the poet T. S. Eliot correctly said, "Humankind cannot bear very much reality."
But this is America, and a good dose of reality is great for the soul. That's especially true in the case of Democrats.
Friday, August 15, 2008
At his best, GWB is leading a country called the United States of America. At theri worst (their "default position"), his opponents are preserving their "options," the better to protect their political futures. For all his deficiencies, GWB loves his country. I have seen no evidence that Obama loves his, whichever it might be.
Historians, rather than pollsters, judge presidencies. The first President I really remember was Harry S. Truman. He was in an endless war (Korea) where some 55,000 Americans died. His approval rating was much lower than GWB's. Now, many students of government see HST as one of our best Presidents -- I certainly do. In 1952, however, he was an object of widespread scorn.
There's a new book by Lawrence Freedman, a British subject, on what we've come to know as "The War on Terrorism." He points out that Presidents like FDR and HST faced a dangerous world, but one in which the issues (and the enemy) were much clearer. In our world, it's not that way. How will history judge GWB? Relatedly, how will it judge Bill Clinton and his own efforts against terrorism?
I'll have more Saturday on Bill Clinton's role in failing to prevent 9/11. He could have done much more; especially, he could have appointed better people at the CIA and FBI. Bush could have credibly blamed the Clinton Aministration for what happened on that September day. He chose not to -- and rightly so. He didn't need a divided country in a time of national catastrophe.
After Nov. 5, I'll give my own views on the two men -- Bush and Clinton -- and their respective efforts to protect the people of America. We haven't had a terrorist attack since 9/11, and somehow I don't believe any credit should go to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid.
Under his presidency I expect many gloomy speeches from the Oval Office, but the overall rhetoric will be high-minded. The body count, unfortunately, will be very high, since the folks at al Qaeda, Inc. see him correctly as a lightweight.
Someone once said, "Life is a terrible teacher. First, it gives you the test -- and only then does it teach you the lesson." George W. Bush might choose those words as his epitaph.
Response from Malia in Hawaii:
I'll be blunt; prior to 9/11, I had little time for or interest in politics. My time is still extremely limited but 9/11 was a turning point for me, the day MY world changed. What JFK and Martin Luther King meant to the 60's generation and Reagan to the 80s, Bush has come to mean to me. And I've got news for the nit picking media, I believe most Americans feel the same.
The 'Ask not what your country' and 'I have a dream' and 'tear down this wall' speeches pales to the '“I can hear you. I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.” The rhetoric spoken by JFK, MLK, Reagan was meant to inspire--to spin hope for a utopian world not yet realized...Bush's words went straight to a nation needing more than comfort.
Like a rising phoenix, Bush reminded America that she was more than a flashy rarity in governing experience, she was a nation capable of horrendous retribution and one that for all her desire to be one of the 'good guys' could set the world ablaze if pushed. I never forgot--and despite the years of safety that gave us back our self-centered world and allowed us to go back to blaming the powers for everything--I don't think most Americans have.
Do I underestimate Obama? Not at all. What I don't do is underestimate America. In the end, she will put aside her self-absorbed, busy concerns, google the two candidates, cross what they read with what they remember hearing.
Obama: In Hawaii..in Europe. A graduate of prestigious schools, with a highly educated wife and adoring children. Sounding like a throw back to the pre-9/11 'I have a dream' remake...as though the accomplishments in civil rights had never occurred...knowing little about our lives and our concerns TODAY.
McCain: Old like most of the voters who actually take the time to vote, ex-military who served in a war that millions got shafted over, with a second wife who finds no need to be anything more than supportive and kids that are serving in the military--just like NORMAL people. True, the guy isn't charismatic...he doesn't have people fainting in the aisle. You might say he's another Bush--without the "let's blame him for everything" factor.
But what the media won't tell you--probably because they see only their own world and pay little attention to anyone outside of it--being another Bush is good. Years from now, people are going to look back at the near 8 years of Bush's watch and it's 7 years of record breaking great economy (before Congress was handed to the Dems), when TWO nations (Afghanistan & Iraq) were given the Bill of Rights and did away with female apartheid, and NO MORE attacks on US soil; something NO ONE expected or dared hope in the days following 9/11. Someday GWB's legacy will join the other 3 mentioned men--only his will be earned and thus harder--but not impossible--to achieve.
I have just heard a radio commentator talk about Rita Hauser, the "Republican for Obama". I would like to pass the following on to the McCain campaign, though I do not wish it to be attributed to me, or - if posted and discussed - done so in any way that will enable anyone to identify me.
I grew up with Rita in a Jewish neighborhood in in [the New York area]. Everyone I knew was Jewish, with the exception of one boy who was Greek Orthodox. This continued through all my public school years.
Rita was a brilliant girl who lived a few blocks away, and with whom I was somewhat friendly. Wee were both in honors classes. She went on to win a Fulbright, and became an international lawyer, a full partner in a prestigious law firm, and the wife of Gus Hauser who was, I THINK, one of the founders of cable television.
We kept in touch periodically, and she was kind to me, even though she far outstripped me in both achievement and money.She came from a very poor family. Her father sold hot dogs [at a major league baseball field in the New York area].
One day, in our early adulthood not long after she married Gus, she told me she was a member of another religion. I THINK it was Jehovah's Witnesses. I fell down. Metaphorically.
She was born Rita Abrams. Everyone I knew then, and was in touch with afterward, knew her to be Jewish: although, to be fair, none of us ever discussed the subject. It was just assumed.
In our neighborhood, EVERYONE was a Jew. And if your name was Abrams, the conclusion was not irrational.
In fact, on learning this, I mentioned the revelation to another woman who was part my childhood crowd: "Not Jewish?" she said, amazed. "How could she be not Jewish? I never heard that."Neither did I; and so, much much later, when I discovered she supported the Palestinians, I was really surprised. (We have not been in touch nor spoken since then.)
The point: by the time I learned this, Rita was ascending the ladder of success and fortune in America where, in many times past - and, perhaps, even today - being Jewish is a hindrance to success.
So, to reach the top, you change "sides."
Her advocacy for Palestinians - and her trumpeted appearance for Obama - tells you exactly, and in no uncertain terms, the direction he's [probably] going to take in reversing American policy toward Israel.And it tells you about the credentials of people who find it expedient to be something other than what they would like you to believe.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. . . .
Background: From CBS News' Michelle Levi: (WASHINGTON)- Barack Obama's campaign is jumping the fence lately, trying to attract voters that don't traditionally vote Democratic. This morning, the campaign rolled out a "Republicans for Obama" effort as former U.S. Rep. Jim Leach, R-Iowa, and Former Bush Foreign Policy Advisor Rita Hauser announced their support for Obama on a conference call. Also on the call was former GOP Sen. Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, who switched to the Democratic Party earlier this year to vote for Obama in his state's primary. Chafee said there are "thousands" of Republicans, "big shots and little shots," who will "weigh the choice" in candidates and "come around to vote for Obama in the election."
See Debbie Schlussel's article below: http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2008/08/who_is_rita_hau.html
Who is Rita Hauser?: Arafat-Gushing, Israel-Hating Jew is 1/3 of Trio on Team Obama GOP; "Republicans" For Obama Are Islamist-Enablers
By Debbie Schlussel
Three "Republicans" (In Name Only)--former Congressman Jim Leach, former U.S. Senator Lincoln Chafee, and Bush family friend Rita Hauser--are the leaders of "Republicans for Obama."But with Hauser at the forefront, they might as well call the group Lewinskys for Arafat. At least that has been the lifelong role of Rita Hauser, a virulently pro-P.L.O. fundraiser for George W. Bush.
I've followed this woman for many years, and it's of note that Obamaslobbering Wall Street Journal fabricator Amy Chozick, yet again, chose not to tell readers the truth. She mentions not a word of Rita Hauser's pro-P.L.O. activities and the millions the terrorist group paid her.
Rita Hauser: Obama's Self-Hating, Terror-Pandering Jewess-in-Chief
The most spot-on description of Rita Hauser is on Masada 2000 (with background music of "Who Let The Dogs Out?"), where she is a member of the Jewish S.H.I.T. (Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening Jews). Here's just a tad:
Her unsolicited meddling on behalf of the Jewish State led to the Oslo Peace Accords and the resulting murder of more than 1,400 Jews! But this lady is not through with Israel yet, in fact, not by a long shot.
On a Oct.14, 2003 C-SPAN2 speech, she told her audience, "It's a moral duty to speak out against Israel" followed by "The Oslo Process was the best thing that ever happened to Israel!" ... "a joyous moment."Read the rest.
According to the New York Sun, Hauser is the funder of the Edward Said chair at Columbia University occupied by the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Rashid Khalidi who has harassed Jewish students (she likes him), and her law firm was the registered representative and lobbyist for the Palestinian Authority from the time it was still run by Yasser Arafat, her friend:
"I made a contribution," Ms. Hauser said, describing the chair's namesake, Professor Edward Said, as "a friend of mine. I admire him." As for the appointment of Mr. Khalidi to the position, Ms. Hauser said she was happy with his selection."I like him very much. He's a splendid guy, a Palestinian intellectual, a first-class choice, and I think everybody's pleased," she said.
Ms. Hauser declined to disclose how much her foundation donated to the Said chair. . . .Ms. Hauser's former law firm, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan, was registered with the Department of Justice as recently as 2001 as an agent for the Palestinian Authority.
If this is a "Republican" for Barack Obama, that should tell you something. And Barack Obama has a lot of questions to answer. We know he's anti-Israel and has surrounded himself with anti-Semites from the Nation of Islam and elsewhere. But since he's engaging in revisionist self-history and trying to pretend that's not true, someone ought to ask him whether he endorses the views of Rashid Khalidi, with whom he's had many connections and associations that have already been reported. He must answer yes or no, once and for all.
And if the answer is "no," then why is Rita Hauser the head of "Republicans for Obama"?
Today's New York Sun has a great editorial exposing the anti-Israel, pro-Arafat, pro-Iran conduct of all three of these so-called Republicans for Obama. Read it!

I've been involved with the conservative movement since the 1964 election. My first (national) published articles appeared in The National Reivew, and I was close to Bill Buckley's sister Priscilla, to historian Dr. Russell Kirk, and several others. I'm older now, but neither daffy nor a Democrat.
When Adam Brickley (of "Draft Sarah Palin" fame and the best young policitical activist in CO or the USA) and I appeared on Doug Gibbs's Political Pistachio radio show, he asked both of us if a truly conservative candidate could win the presidency. Both of us reluctantly said "No."
I sent the following to Bill Smith, a tireless conservative figure in Arkansas. I'd love to hear your views on it -- and, God willing, ultimately put the responses in a book about "The Resurrection of Conservatism: What Must Be Done."
Bill, thanks for all the hard work you're doing. I think after this election, conservatives need to get their (our) heads together and figure out what needs to be done to restore the movement to something approximating its Reagan-era status.
We need a vigorous online presence and a strong effort to turn good groups (like Bev Perlson's The Band of Mothers and Col. O. P. Ditch's Vets4McCain) into huge, effective advocacy groups.
We also need new leadership in Congress. I'm not talking ideology so much as people (like Eric Cantor and Jeff Flake) who have more than a clue how to grow the Movement. There are millions of people who will vote for Barack Obama -- including Blacks -- that should be voting for Republican candidates.
Additionally, we must ask if the conservative movement can supply enough money -- to conservatives -- so that they can campaign effectively. The money-raising gap is embarrassing. None of the Republican presidential candidates, except perhaps Romney, did a decent job of fundraising.
McCain's online effort, until recently, was pathetic. In every winning campaign in the future, the Internet will play a critical role. One element in building our presence online to attract more young people, "the YouTube Generation."
Obama is a weak candidate, but we're going to have to work our tails off to beat him. We need to ask why that's the case. Somehow, we have to get more people to back the more conservative candidates.
I am trying -- and failing I fear -- to get Republican candidates for Congress in PA to take off the gloves and stop going through the motions. Nobody wins by being cautious over overly courteous.

PRO-MILITARY & PRO-AMERICAN HEROINES PERLSON AND BARTOSHEVICH ON CLINTONS FOR MCCAIN BLOG TALK RADIO
United States of America (Press Release), August 13, 2008
Beverly Perlson and Debra Bartoshevich will join us on Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio at 5 p.m., ET, Saturday, August 16, 2008 to discuss basic American freedoms and responsibilities.
Perlson, from the Chicago, Illinois area, founded The Band of Mothers (http://thebandofmothers.com/), an organization of soldiers’ moms committed “to Step Up, Stand Up and Stick Up For Our Soldiers.” As a member of the 82d Airborne Division, Perlson’s Bronze-Star-winning son, Sergeant John White, served four tours of combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Bartoshevich, from the Racine, Wisconsin area, was elected a Hillary Clinton delegate to the Democratic National Convention. When she announced she would vote for John McCain in the General Election, the state Party quickly stripped her of her rights to attend the Convention as a Clinton supporter.
Here’s where and when Perlson and Bartoshevich will appear.
Blog Talk Radio, Clintons 4 McCain August 2, 2008: 5 PM EST http://www.blogtalkradio.com/clintons4mccain
Call-in Number: (347) 633-9273
Perlson and her allied groups – including Gathering of Eagles, Soldiers Guardian Angeles, Vets for Freedom, and Free Republic – regularly confront anti-war legislators, including Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha.
Perlson has clashed memorably with the militant anti-war group CODEPINK. That group has conducted anti-military demonstrations before Congress and at a Berkeley, California Marine recruiting center.
Medea Benjamin, CODEPINK co-founder, has called Perlson and her soldier son “terrorists.” In response, Perlson said, “I have a message for you, Medea. Get out of our country.”
CODEPINK, along with Moveon.org of “General Betray-us” infamy, has been provided major financial backing for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Jodie Evans, a CODEPINK co-founder, has served as “bundler” of Obama’s campaign donations.
Debra Bartoshevich, an emergency room nurse, received national attention for her pro-Clinton, pro-democracy, anti-Obama stance.
After the Democratic Party stripped her of her Convention credentials, she and her 16-year-old daughter met with Sen. John McCain.
He described Bartoshevich as “a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.” He praised her courage in putting conscience and country ahead of Party.
On the radio program, Bartoshevich will discuss intimidation and strong-arm tactics being used by Democratic Party officials against Hillary Supporters.
Perlson will talk about how the political gamesmanship played by far-left members of Congress endangers the lives of soldiers like her son.
Both women will highlight why they’ve become strong members of the NoBama coalition.
Co-hosts on the program will be “NoBama” political activists Steve Maloney, from Pennsylvania, and Anne M. Franklin of Texas.

With less than 90 days to go, Team Obama has not yet released the following fairly routine requests for documents. Surely we. the People have the right to know who we are going to entrust with our country before we give him the keys.
1.Certified Copy of original Birth certificate
2.Columbia College records
3.Columbia Thesis paper
4.Certification of Live Birth showing where born
5.Harvard College records
6.Illinois State Senate records
7.Illinois State Senate schedule
8.Law practice client list and billing records/summary
9.Locations and names of all half-siblings and step-mothers
10Medical records (only the one page summary released so far)
11.Occidental College records
12.Parent's Marriage Certificate
13.Record of baptism
14.Selective Service Registration
15.Trips schedules for trips outside of the United States before 2007
16.Scholarly articles17.Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups
And finally, Senator Obama, the People would like to meet your maternal grandmother. Why wont you allow anyone to go near her in Hawaii. She can hardly say something that could be fatal to your run for the President. Can she?

The Haircut Man (and Ken-Doll-lookalike) John Edwards hugging his adoring wife . . .
In his statement, John Edwards noted that he had been 'stripped bare' by the sex scandal. I imagine he had . . .
This evening (Saturday), I'll be writing on two blogs (the ones with links below) about the John Edwards scandal. In their statements, both Sen. Edwards (the "haircut man") and his equally cynical wife, Elizabeth, talked about the Senator's "honesty." His mistress, Rielle Hunter, had talked about his being "open . . . authentic . . . real." Please give me a break.
When Senator Edwards, a thoroughly despicable man, talked about his being "honest 99% of the time," he demonstrated his self-acknowledged "egomania" and "narcissism." As GOP strategist Alex Castellanous explained, honesty is not a matter of percentages. Alex said, "Either you're honest -- or you're not."
Neither Sen. Edwards nor his wfie are honest people. Rather, they are very ambitious individuals. Because of people like John and Elizabeth Edwards -- who was John's attack dog against Hillary Clinton -- it's becoming progressively harder to get decent people to have anything to do with politics.
Why did Sen. Kerry, who knew Edwards to be a dishonest man, choose him as his V-P candidate? How did the good Democrats of Iowa think such an individual was a suitable candidate for President? Why did the media present Moveon.org and Daily Kos leftist Elizabeth as some sort of saint?
And, why are we to assume the massive payoffs to Ms. Rielle Hunter (born "Lisa Druck") and Edwards staffer Young are anything other than payoffs?

"Vote McCain, not Hussein"
I'm delighted that hundreds of people every day -- sometimes more -- read my blogs (listed at the bottom of this piece). Currently, I'm "managing" a critically important group, NoBama Mission Bloggers. The blogroll (see the sidebar) continues to grow, and right now there are 150-plus blog.
My goal, a very ambitious one, is to get to 300 by mid-September. That will be a "critical mass" which will allow us to improve our Google and Technorati "rankings" and begin to have a real influence on the election.What if you want to establish a blog (or two, or three), but don't know how to do so? What I'd suggest is that you click on the following link: http://mccainbloggerresources.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-create-pro-mccain-blog.html
It's a piece by blogging expert Kathy Morrison, a person who does web pages for a living, and it's all you'll need to establish your own blog. Also, if you want to get people -- and eventually, a lot of people -- to visit your blog, e-mail me at: TalkTop65@aol.com. I'll send you material that shows how to use key words to help people find and visit your blog. And, of course, when you establish a blog, you can join NoBama Mission Bloggers
As the weekend goes on, I'll write more about the role bloggers and other onliners can play in helping ensure that the next POTUS is NOT named Barack Hussein Obama. In political activity, it turns out that it's both WHO you know -- and HOW MANY people you know. (Hint: have a real long e-mail address list.)

“The Muslim Brotherhood must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” Mohammed Akram, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the [Muslim Brotherhood] Group in North America,” May 22, 1991
Mr. Asbahi said he did not want to distract Obama's campaign.
"Mr. Asbahi has informed the campaign that he no longer wishes to serve in his volunteer position, and we are in the process of searching for a new national Arab American and Muslim American outreach coordinator," spokesman Ben LaBolt said in a statement.
"I served on that board for only a few weeks before resigning as soon as I became aware of public allegations against another member of the board," Mr. Asbahi said in his resignation letter. "Since concerns have been raised about that brief time, I am stepping down...to avoid distracting from Barack Obama's message of change."
The eight-year-old connection between Mr. Asbahi and Mr. Said was raised last week by the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report, which is published by a Washington think tank and chronicles the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, a world-wide fundamentalist group based in Egypt.
The Justice Department named Mr. Said an unindicted co-conspirator in the racketeering trial last year of several alleged Hamas fundraisers, which ended in a mistrial. He has also been identified as a leading member of the group in news reports going back to 1993....

[This piece is from: http://purplepeoplevote.com/2008/08/06/clinton-campaigns-silence-on-]
Politico piece in italics] But regardless of the real meaning of Clinton’s words, and of Clinton’s long relationship with African-Americans, this is the rift between the Clinton and Obama camps that still cuts the deepest, and the one that may have the severest consequences for Obama’s White House bid. When John McCain’s campaign manager last week accused Obama of playing the “race card,” the Clintons or their supporters could have provided a powerful rebuttal. Instead they were silent, and in private, some even quietly cheered.
The depth of the anger in Clinton’s circle became clear Friday, when McCain’s chief strategist compared his candidate to Bill Clinton, and the Clintons seemed to accept the analogy.
“Say whatever you want about Bill Clinton, but it’s deeply unfair to suggest his criticism of Obama was race-based,” McCain adviser Steve Schmidt told Politico, after his campaign blasted Obama for suggesting the McCain campaign would use his race against him. “We knew it was coming in our direction because they did it against a president of the United States of their own party.”
Hillary Clinton’s staff declined to comment, but her campaign communications director, Howard Wolfson, appeared on Fox News later that day to, in effect, back Schmidt up.
Kathy adds: Some have stated that the Obama campaign shouldn’t be criticized for bringing up race. However, it’s important to note that the Obama campaign didn’t just make a blanket statement about race and ethnicity, Obama directly stated that the McCain campaign would be using his “funny name” and the way he looks against him. What is unfair is to point your finger at the McCain campaign for trying to scare people with race and ethnicity when there is no evidence of that happenning.
Kathy adds: The Clinton camp’s silence speaks volumes. If they disagreed with the McCain campaign’s assessment they could have easily knocked down the ‘race card’ charges, or at least minimized them with a simple statement. That didn’t happen, and the reason is that they’ve already been burned by this strategy.

See also the following links re: Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton has said that Obama -- and the Obama Campaign -- used the "race card" against him. He's also suggested they used it against his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. In that assessment, the former President is right on target. Obama is now obviously trying to use race against John McCain -- the remarks about his [Black] face on the currency being the latest example. The Obama Campaign has long been trying to spread the idea that a vote against him is a vote for racism -- something they believe will scare Democrats into voting for Party rather than country.
It's time -- and it's almost past time -- for Bill and Hillary to step up to the plate. They need to renounce Barack Obama before the Denver Convention. Bill has said he'll be ready to speak out on November 5.
That may be too late. Bill needs to speak NOW from his heart and head.

Sharon Caliendo, formerly from Ohio, now in Oklahoma and a Republican activist there, sent me the following link from YouTube -- it's an Ohio GOP ad, and Sharon says it makes her proud of her home state: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkytVjgn-Uc Other states, please take notice . . .
Bulletin: There's growing evidence that Bill Clinton is NOT going to back Barack Obama. See my Monday column on: http://hillarysupportersformccain.blogspot.com. I've titled the column, "Bill, Hillary MUST Denounce Obama." See also the following link: http://purplepeoplevote.com/2008/08/04/clinton-remarks-bolster-mccains-claims-that-the-race-card-was-played/
"Don't always take at face value what pollsters tell you."
"A lot of people have gone broke betting that the pollsters are right."
One point to remember about Barack Hussein Obama is that he "polls" better (usually by 3 points or more) than he does on the day of the balloting. In contrast, McCain tends to do BETTER than he polls.
You may (vaguely) remember that in the Pennsylvania Primary (balloting on April 22) the MSM was saying that the race was tightening, and they even used their favorite phrase "too close to call." I predicted just before the Primary that Sen. Clinton would win by about 10%. She carried PA by 9.2% -- actually by a margin of nearly 15% outside Philadelphia County.
The results were similar in Ohio, where we were also told the Clinton-Obama race was "too close to call" and that Obama "was closing strong." Actually, he almost NEVER closes strongly. The undecided and the unsure (at least those who vote) almost always go for Obama's opponent.
The real situation in an election depends on the Likely Voters (those who vote with some regularity in elections). Obama tends to do well with "registered voters," a good portion of whom do NOT vote. (In fact, a significant portion of Likely Voters also don't vote -- about two out of ten or more -- but that's another story.)
Almost everywhere, voters who are -- or lean -- Republican are more likely to vote than Democrats. Also, on election day there are "exit polls" that tend to be presented as Gospel, but that can be very misleading. If you doubt that, just ask "President Kerry," who won all the (early) exit polls on election day in 2004.
Why does that happen? Because voters favoring the Republican candidate in a national (or other other federal) election tend to vote LATER than those favoring the Democratic candidate. That situation happens always -- in every election.
Also in 2004, some national polls (Zogby was one) said that last-minute-deciding Independents were "break eight-to-one" for Kerry. Again, "President Kerry" could only have wished that were true, which it was not. GWB won in 2004 by about 3 million votes, and the Independents generally vote for Bush. Pollsters are really bad at determining what late-deciding Independents are doing.
In 2004, Gallup responded to public pressures (from the MSM and Democrats) that accused it of including too many Republicans in their surveys. Gallup in fact changed its "gold-standard" polling template. It ended up predicting that Bush would carry PA -- and Kerry would carry Ohio. I said at the time that Gallup seemed to have mixed up the two states. In fact, Bush carried OH narrowly -- and Kerry did the same in PA.
Gallup also suggested that Kerry might win FL. In fact, he lost it by 300,000-plus votes.
Independents are less likely to vote than either Democrats or Republicans. In fact, some people who claim to be "Independents" are in fact uninterested in politics. "Independents" in that category rarely vote.

She adds, "I also have a very extensive email list..so let me know when you want a mass mailing. Thanks."We need the names (first name is okay) and e-mail addresses of people like this. I told her that the mailing list is "golden." If this person has 50 (or 100 -- or 500 -- or 5000) on the her list, she can ask people to join her in opposing the election of Barack H. Obama.
If friends, family members, and other connections realize this person is opposing Obama -- for some compelling reasons -- it will influence how they vote. The reasons for opposing Obama? That he is unqualified (no foreign policy or military experience), inexperienced (half a term in the U.S. Senate, most of it spent on the campaign trail), too untrustworthy (telling false stories about his life and "accomplishments"), and too dangerous (suggesting that the U.S. might "reinvade" Iraq and that we might invade Pakistan, an ally and one with nuclear bombs). This message (inexperienced, unqualified, untrustworthy, and dangerous) works to create doubts about -- and opposition to -- Obama.
What about positives regarding Obama's opponent who, in the General Election, would be John McCain? That time will come (soon), and the positives are the opposite of Obama's deficiencies. McCain is qualified, experienced, honest, and NOT dangerous.
He is right on critical issues (such as producing more domestic energy and thus helping keep prices down) where Obama is just plain wrong. Rather than having to invent imaginary "uncles" with bogus military "accomplishments," McCain (and his father and grandfather) achieved exemplary records of military service and foreign policy knowledge.
The key is to contact people who will in turn contact others. The goal is to send out messages that have a cascading effect. If someone sends out 60 "NoBama" messages to people who in turn send out 60 messages (some will send more, some will send fewer), then there are 3600 contacts. If each of the 3600 new contacts send out 60 messages, we're up around 200,000. If the 200,000 send out another 60 e-mails, then we're up around 12 million. And if the 12 million in turn send out, then the total contacts could exceed the population of the U.S.!
Of course, it won't be exactly that easy. It will necessary to urge people to contact everyone they can -- face-to-face, over the phone, or through the Internet -- in order to ensure victory in November. The point to get across to people like "hillaryisourchoice" is that "somebody else" is not going to do the job of making important contacts about the need to defeat Obama. You and I, along with everyone else in the NoBama Movement, must do the things -- make the contacts -- necessary to win the Nov. 4 election.
Within a day or so, you will be able to find NoBama fliers at: http://clintons4mccain.com/. What if you don't like something in the fliers made available? In that case, use the fliers as a model -- and create your own. This is largely a "do-it-yourself" effort.
Winning the Nov. 4 election is crucail to achieving the other changes many people want, such as reforming BOTH political candidates and ensuring that future candidates don't come with the liabilities of a Barack Obama. Right now, we have a Congress controlled by Nancy Pelosi, one of the main villains who torpedoed the campaign of Hillary Clinton. That Congress, rather than dealing with sky-high energy prices, has now gone on vacation for five weeks! The lack of concern for the American public is appalling.
We can do better. We MUST do better.
