Shades of 2000?

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

In the year 2000, the State of Florida had a problem with their ballots as we all can remember very well. The term dangling chad entered the lexicon and the election was finally decided by the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore.

Now the same might happen in this election.

A federal judge has ordered election officials in Virginia to preserve late-arriving absentee ballots that Republican John McCain’s campaign claims should be counted.

The McCain campaign says in a lawsuit that absentee ballots weren’t mailed on time to many military members serving overseas. The complaint asks the court to order the state to count absentee ballots from overseas troops postmarked by Tuesday and received by Nov. 14.

The deadline for ballots to be received is 7 p.m. on Election Day.

U.S. District Judge Richard Williams said Tuesday that he will hear the lawsuit on Nov. 10. He ordered election officials to keep the late-arriving ballots until then.

It isn’t the fault of the military men and women of the State of Virginia that they didn’t receive their ballots in time. It is the fault of the Registar of Voters of Virginia. The ballots should be counted.

If the vote is close, then each of the Absentee Votes should and must be counted.

This could go on for weeks again. And who knows what the outcome could be.

Hamas is campaigning openly for Obama

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

You get a phone call asking you to vote for Barack Hussein Obama and you say no. The caller on the other end is giving you reason after reason to vote for him and will not take no for an answer. You hang up on this rude caller and think that is that. But what you don’t know is that the caller for the Obama campaign is actually in Gaza and a member of Hamas.

A Palestinian Authority newspaper reported on Sunday that Arab residents of Gaza are randomly calling Americans at home in hopes of persuading them to vote for Democratic candidate Senator Barack Obama in next month’s US presidential election.

The article in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, first noted and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, quotes a young man from the Hamas-controlled Gaza region as saying, “We dial random numbers and try to call people [in the United States] without knowing their identity or their affiliation….” He reportedly uses “Internet sites that allow making free calls… in order to use them for the campaign supporting Obama.”

Abu Jayyab’s freelance phone campaign for Obama in the last weeks of the American presidential race has not been the first time the Illinois senator has gotten such help. An Al-Jazeera TV report during the Democratic primaries featured Abu Jayyab as well, when he was busy organizing calls to American voters to persuade them to vote for Obama over then-candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Other types of assistance have also been forthcoming from Gaza. In July of this year, Pamela Geller of the Atlas Shrugs blog revealed documents purporting to show that the Obama campaign received nearly $30,000 from two brothers living in Rafiah, in Hamas-controlled Gaza, during 2007.

Earlier, during an April 2008 interview with WABC radio and WorldNetDaily, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s Gaza-based political advisor Ahmed Yousef said, “Actually, we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will [win] the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle.”

Full Story

Last summer Barack Hussein Obama met with Palestinian leaders. What secret deals did he make with them? Did he promise to invade Israel and give the whole nation to the Palestinians? I wouldn’t be surprised if he did. Barack Hussein Obama is an anti-Semite who has sat at the feet of Reverend Wright for 20 years. The same Reverend Wright who thought that Hitler was a great man and didn’t go far enough.

Mark my word. This is a prophecy I now give you. If Barack Hussein Obama is elected to the Presidency of the United States, he will find an excuse to invade Israel within 3 years of his Presidency. No wonder why every terrorist group from CAIR to Hizbollah is openly supporting him with money and people.

The Ultimate Swing State

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

When the pundits talk about swing states they forget about the fact that there are many voters who live outside the United States. Some are in the military and vote via absentee ballots. Others are Americans who choose to live overseas either because of their employment or for personal reasons.

One such group of Americans live in Israel, and with their numbers they can change the election in a number of swing states.

Approximately half of some 42,000 registered US voters living in Israel are voting in swing states such as Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and could have an effect on the turnouts of those elections, according to Shimon Greenspan, director of the nonpartisan Vote From Israel organization, which helps Americans living in Israel to register and cast their absentee ballots.

“If the election is close, as it was in the past two [presidential] elections, then the deciding votes could be coming from Israel,” he said.

According to the organization, Israel has the third-largest group of American voters abroad, behind Canada and Britain.

While the largest number of registered US voters in Israel come from New York or New Jersey, two states heavily in the Democratic camp according to polls, the next two states are the key battlegrounds of Ohio and Florida. Several thousand votes will likely be going to those swing states from Israel.

Furthermore, the significance of the votes from Israel could be magnified because they will come well before the November 4 election. Their choices, to be reported next week in an Israel-based exit poll commissioned by Vote From Israel, could influence American Jews in the United States, believes Greenspan.

This could slightly help Republican hopeful John McCain if an August poll by KEEVOON Research, Strategy and Communications remains accurate. That poll, which surveyed Israelis generally and not American voters in the country, gave the Arizona senator some 38 percent support, compared to 31% for Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

In Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania these overseas votes just might swing these states to John McCain.

It would be an interesting event if on November 4th Barack Hussein Obama discovers that he lost the Presidency due to Americans living in Israel. And it would be poetic justice upon him.

Obama’s Plan For The Economic Ruin Of America

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

Barack Hussein Obama proposed to the American people that we “redistribute the wealth” by taxing all people who make over $250,000 a year and up. To many that sounds good. We should do that, so everyone is equal and has the same. That dear truthseeker is called Socialism. Everyone making the same and receiving the same salary. There is no incentive for a person to work hard, for a business to grow. This was tried by the Soviet Union, its satellites and China. They all came to the realization that without incentives, an economy cannot grow and people become discontent.

After 4 years of an Obama economy will we be better off? If he actually is able to impose his ideas on the American economy, we will be in big economic trouble.

After 4 years of Obama’s economic policy there will be at least 25% unemployment. With at least 10% of small businesses gone, those workers will be on the Obama welfare programs or forced into jobs in his National Civilian Police Force. For 80% of all businesses are small businesses. Most of those businesses make over $250,000 a year in profit. That money doesn’t just go into the boss’ pocket. It goes for new equipment and jobs. Take away the profit, and business cannot grow.

After 4 years of Obama’s economic policy the stock market will have dived to the lowest levels since 1929. With massive unemployment and the loss of many businesses, larger companies are having a harder time selling their goods. With the tax rate at higher levels, the price of American goods have gone sky high. Companies cannot make a profit and their dividends to their stock holders have stopped.

After 4 years of Obama’s economic policy, banks will still be in trouble. By not allowing banks to sink or swim, Obama’s policy of bailing out the banks will cost more and more money as more and more banks step up to the Federal Gravy Train. As they gain more and more Federal funds, they dry up credit and loans to business and people. They are sitting pretty, and with just the hint that they might go under, the Congress will throw funds at him.

After 4 years of Obama’s economic policy, we will be $10 trillion in debt. With less and less tax money coming in and the costs of Obama’s welfare programs rising higher and higher, we will have to go deeper and deeper into debt. We will borrow trillions of dollars just to pay for it all.

After 4 years of Obama’s economic policy, we will be in a Depression. And when our economy collapses, the world’s will collapse after us. The whole world will be in dire straits. China will discover that they cannot sell their goods in the US, since nobody has the money to buy them. Europe won’t have the funds to buy any foreign goods. And with such an economic disaster, war could break out very easily.

After 4 years under Obama will we be better off than we are now?

No. Obama will have taken the United States from the position of the World’s Leader and will turn us into a Third World Nation.

Barack Hussein Obama is naive at best. He is wrong choice for President. His policies are so far to the left that you can call him a Socialist, not just a liberal. He will destroy all that we have worked for and hope for.

Poor Little Rich Michelle

I know we’re spending — I added it up for the first time — we spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements and so on and so forth,” Mrs. Obama tells the women. “And summer programs. That’s the other huge cost. Barack is saying, ‘Whyyyyyy are we spending that?’ And I’m saying, ‘Do you know what summer camp costs?’”

Poor Michelle Obama. She and her candidate hubby Barack only make a combined income of $481,000 a year. Yet they can’t afford piano lessons, sports lessons, dance class and summer camp for their daughters.

Poor, poor Michelle. Her candidate hubby had only 2 best sellers, bringing in millions of dollars in royalties. Yet they are having trouble saving for their daughters’ college education.

What will they do?

Trying to look like a middle-class family, Michelle Obama made the statement above. But let us look at the facts.

FACT: They make $481,000 in combined income. This puts them in the top 2% of all US taxpayers. Middle class they are not.

FACT: Michelle Obama doesn’t do housework. She has had maids, nannies, and gardners. The average American can only dream of those luxuries.

FACT: Michelle and Barack Obama went to the best schools in the nation. Universities that cost $50,000 a year. Most Americans if they go to college, can only afford city or state schools.

FACT: Michelle and Barack Obama send their children to the best (expensive) private schools in the Chicago area. Most Americans send their children to public schools because they cannot afford the tuition to the private schools.

FACT: The Obamas are rich! They are not middle class. They do not struggle to make ends meet. They do not worry how they can afford gas and food, let alone the luxuries of piano and dance lessons for their children.

Michelle I have some advise for you. I know how you can afford all the luxuries for your daughters. You can send them to the YMCA. They have dance, music and sports all in one place. They have reasonable fees and a great staff to help you. You can even join and use their gym equipment instead of the expensive health club you and Barack use. But then again, with the elitist attitude you and Barack have, you’d probably decide not to. After all you would have to associate with real Americans. The Middle Class and poor.

UPDATE: (Hat tip to Jem of America Needs Sarah Palin) Since writing this, it has come to my attention the indulgences that Michelle Obama has.

Michelle Obama ordered lobster apps, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar, and Champagne at the Waldorf Wednesday afternoon when she was there with her dear hubby for a meeting.

You can view the room service check here. And they want to be considered Middle Class? Not in this plane of existence.

Ayers is not welcome here.

Cross posted from Monkey in the Middle

So much has been written about Bill “I didn’t bomb enough” Ayers to fill a couple of books.

  • Former member of the Weather Underground.
  • Fugitive from the law.
  • Radical liberal.
  • Radical teaching methods.
  • Good friend of Barack Hussein Obama.

Just the type of person the liberal, collegate establishment loves. So why did the University of Nebraska cancel his upcoming speech?

Safety concerns have forced University of Nebraska-Lincoln officials to cancel plans for William Ayers to speak on campus.

Ayers, who founded a group in the late 1960s that claimed responsibility for bombing several government buildings, was to speak Nov. 15.

But officials said Friday the university’s threat assessment group received e-mails and phone calls over the last day or two that identified safety issues.

Ayers, a University of Illinois at Chicago education professor, was invited by UNL’s College of Education and Human Sciences because of his expertise in research related to small schools and urban education.

Ayers also is vice president-elect of curriculum studies at the American Educational Research Association.

But he’s become a lightening rod in the U.S. presidential campaign for his role as founder of the Weather Underground. The group formed in the late 1960s claimed responsibility for nonfatal bombings of the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

Friday’s announcement comes after Gov. Dave Heineman and several other Nebraska politicians asked the university to rescind its invitation.

“Bill Ayers is a well-known radical who should never have been invited,” Heineman said earlier Friday. “The people of Nebraska are outraged.

“This has gone beyond the University of Nebraska. It’s gotten to citizens all across this state, and they’re not happy because this is a public university.”

The American people have different views than those of the collegate elites that run the universities in this nation. People like Ayers should be denied speaking engagements everywhere. I just wish he would be fired from his job at the University of Illinois at Chicago, but I wouldn’t hold my breath over that.

Bill Ayers is a liability to any university. He should be in prison for life and would have been if he and his wife wasn’t released on a technicality of law.

Bill Ayers, just another reason to question Barack Hussein Obama’s judgement. And yet another reason not to vote for Obama in November.
