Obama's Socialist World War on Poverty

A post today at continues a series of the Obamessiah's planned policies to separate us from more of our money to aid the po' folk 'round the world.

Obama's Global Poverty Act offers us a global socialist destiny we do not want, one that challenges America's very sovereignty. The former "post-racial" candidate obviously intends to be a post-national president.

A statement from Obama's office says: "With billions of people living on just dollars a day around the world, global poverty remains one of the greatest challenges and tragedies the international community faces. It must be a priority of American foreign policy to commit to eliminating extreme poverty and ensuring every child has food, shelter and clean drinking water."

These are worthy goals, but note there's no mention of spreading democracy, expanding free trade, promoting entrepreneurial capitalism or ridding the world of despots who rule and ravage countries such as Zimbabwe and Sudan.

Obama would give them all a fish without teaching them how to fish. Pledging to cut global poverty in half on the backs of U.S. taxpayers is a ridiculous and impossible goal.

The article suggests this would cost each and every American taxpayer $2,500 and would lead to even higher oil and energy prices.

Obama's agenda sounds like defeated 2004 Democratic candidate John Kerry's "global test" for U.S. foreign policy decisions where "you have to do it in a way that passes the test — that passes the global test — where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons."

Obama has called on the U.S. to "lead by example" on global warming and probably would submit to a Kyoto-like agreement that would sock Americans with literally trillions of dollars in costs over the next half century for little or no benefit.

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times . . . and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama has said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."

Oh, really? Who's to say we can't load up our SUV and head out in search of bacon double cheeseburgers at the mall? China? India? Bangladesh? The U.N.?

In an Obama White House, American sovereignty will become an endangered species. The Global Poverty Act is the first toe in the water of global socialism.

With the Obamessiah at the helm. Can I get an amen?

Perhaps this will stem the global tide of all those people around the world that hate us.

Read the entire article, and plan to hold your nose and vote for Juan McCain come Nov. 4. We must avoid an Obama-nation at all costs!

Dingy Harry shut down by Republicans

In a bold, unprecedented move (by this class of Rinos), the Senate Republicans stopped a bill full of pork-barrel from proceeding through the process yesterday, instead demanding that Congress first act to reduce gasoline prices.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rolled about three dozen bills into a hard-to-resist measure, dubbed it the "Advancing America's Priorities Act" and warned that its defeat would mean society's neediest would have wait until next year for the government's help.
What a great leader! Dingy Harry, so worried about his suffering people, proclaimed

"In the meantime, there will be much suffering and mental distress as a
result of not moving forward on these matters," the Nevada Democrat told his
Republican colleagues.

What about the suffering and mental distress on the entire nation of not being able to afford to drive to work, or worries that the Saudis and Venezuelans are buying up our country? Not a problem.

The article continues:

He predicted election-year consequences.
I agree. There will be "election year consequences," but in the reverse of what Reid is predicting: the Dhimmicrats should be shown the door if they don't do something about high gas prices and our country's security by allowing a vote to remove the ban on ANWR and offshore drilling.

Unfortunately, all the pundits are predicting a Dhimmicrat majority in both houses come fall, leaving the Rinos without enough votes to filibuster (an extreme tactic to prevent the other side from passing legislation).

The consequences could be disastrous for our country for a long time. Remember the lasting effect of the sixties & seventies? We're still paying that bill.

Hold your nose and vote Republican this fall.

Politics as usual at the Dispatch?

Yesterday morning, an article on the front page of the local fishwrap covered the FBI raids by nearly 200 agents of Cuyahoga politicians. Here's how the story ran:

Feds raid homes of Cuyahoma officials

The public-corruption investigation that paralyzed Cuyahoga County government Monday unraveled the political and business ties of the county's most powerful and colorful players: Commissioner Jimmy Dimora and Auditor Frank Russo.

The federal investigation centers on allegations that they traded jobs and contracts for thousands of dollars of free improvements to their homes and properties.
The investigation went public when nearly 200 agents from the FBI and IRS simultaneously raided county offices, businesses and homes at 9 a.m.

The operation was so broad that the FBI brought in agents from Pittsburgh and used three U-Haul trucks to take away cartons of documents and other items. Dimora and Russo, who have spent their political careers in the limelight, stayed out of sight all day and were not available for comment.

The nearly inseparable duo built a Democratic machine by hiring friends and allies, which is the subject of a continuing Plain Dealer investigative series. And the two have helped the party control every elected office in the county for decades, partly through Dimora's role as county Democratic Party chairman.

Notice they wait until the fourth paragraph to mention these goodfellas are dhimmicrats, nothing in the headline.

OTOH, on the cover of the Dispatch this morning:


Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in Senate history, was indicted yesterday on charges that he did not disclose receiving more then $250,000 in gifts. (emphasis mine)

The article stub on the front page includes a headshot of the senator and a push over to page three.

Is it just me, or is this politics as usual at the local birdcage liner?

In journalism school, you learn about the inverted pyramid approach to the newswriting. Because articles can get edited to almost any length, your lead should be the strongest graph, followed by the next most important detail, then the next most important, etc. Apparently, the politicians democrats liberals editors at the Dispatch feel that one (alleged) crooked politician's party affiliation is a bit more important than another's?

Granted, this is a senator vs. a couple of local cronies in Cuyahoga County, and he supposedly is the longest-sitting Republican, but the Cleveland goodfellas have been doing this, according to their article, for a very long time.

Leftmedia once again? You decide.
