“…gave proof through the night…”

©2009 drkate

Fall has changed to winter here seemingly overnight, as I gather all the gloves, scarves, and hats I can find to break the whistling wind.  I look out the window, through the gray now November sky…our flag is still there…in fact, I see more and more American flags every day.  Storefronts, automobiles, pins, hats, and patches on jackets.  Americans, hanging on, getting ready.

Open thread!

    I think this article from the American Thinker is really worth reading.


    It brings to light all the things we discuss on this site, including the freedoms given us by the founders in the Constitution and Obama’s distain for those individual freedoms.

    Dr. Kate, I also live in a neighborhood where there are many flags flying from homes and stores. It makes me feel so good, even safe – if you know what I mean – to wander around my area and see them all flying.

      Excellent find, Delle. something to contemplate seriously. I remembered immediately thinking that obama got the Nobel because he was anti american. Now I know that is true.

      From the article:

      the Founders, wise in the ways of man, were also aware that foreign powers can gain control, not only through aggressive acts, but also through apparent acts of friendship. Presidents who might develop overly friendly relationships with foreign leaders may not unilaterally enter into treaties unless a two-thirds (or super-) majority of the Senate ratifies the treaty. Likewise, without Congress’s explicit permission, no government official may be flattered into acts contrary to American interests by accepting “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.”

    I just heard Adbullah Abdullah from Afghanistan has dropped out of the run-off. Wonder what kind of threats were made so dear leader does not have to fret about sending more troops and the long-legged spider reaches and spans across oceans to claim it’s victims in other countries. It is like he speaks and the dominoes fall.

      I think its more serious—I think the opposition leader would have been killed.

      Obama should be arrested for failing to protect our soldiers and America. The SOB 😡

    I think so too, drkate. How deep does the corruption of the CIA, FBI and those who were put where they are to protect us, go? Everyone who knows who this man occupying our WH is but who are looking the other way. Supreme court, Congress everyone. My only thought is that those elections Tuesday send the Peoples’ message to the ones attempting to silence and overthrow our government. Perhaps enough people have awakened from their koolaide induced stupor in time to stop this mess from happening. We can only hope and pray. I have done a lot of that lately.

      The White House and Obutt have just announced that Karzi is the winner. The arrogance, Obutt has declared him the winner, not the people of Afghanistan but the Squatter In Chief of the US. Now let us see what excuse he uses to delay his decision on troops on the ground there.

    From Alan Keyes site. You’ve known for a long time now Congress isn’t listening….now they are refusing our petitions.

    drkate, here is a petition to sign about the global freezing/warming/change what the heck. You know what the dems mean. Anyone want to sign it. I just did.

    As we near the finish line for Tuesdays elections we are aware that Obutt and the DNC are worried. But, never fear as they always do (though we slept through years of it) they are hard at work to fix the New Jersey Governor’s race. And they must as Obutt, Clinton and the Kennedy’s have spent many hours and days campaigning there and we know Obutt cannot accept loss of face.

    News out today says there is fraud (omg, can you imagine? lol) of Absentee Ballots. And, tada, the “scrubbers” are hard at work. Article appeared in the NY Post and on the website of WABC:

    Posted on Saturday, October 31, 2009 7:22:36 AM by Perdogg

    An official with New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine’s re-election campaign was arrested last night after cops found found ecstasy tablets wrapped and ready to be sold in his car, police said.

    Jason Shih, 25, was pulled over by East Rutherford cops at about 11:30 p.m. last night because he was talking on his cell phone on Route 17, said Lt. Chris Conforti of the East Rutherford police.

    Officers wound up finding 19 “blue star” ecstasy tablets in Shih’s car, each wrapped in its own little plastic bag.

    Well of course this could not be allowed to stand and has “disappeared” from both sites. I am certain there are other sites but I am also certain they have also been scrubbed. But, alas, the dredded freedom of speech on the internet has secured copies on blogs throughout the blogosphere.

    Could the article have been mistaken? Not likely, if the report was proven to be a mistake there would have been a Giant Front Page Retraction at the exact same time as the original article was removed. There may be a retraction printed at some point in time, but we know that it will have been devised by the likes of Anita Dunn and the other “White House Media Controllers” and intelligent Americans will realize it for what it is, a coverup that has again been foisted upon us by those in controll to influence the vote.

    Dr. Kate, this audio is a beautiful tribute to our flag and those who fought so hard to protect it. It is the story of Frances Scott Key’s writing of the national anthem.

    Remember how we wondered and fretted about who would be guests at the People’s house once The long legged mac daddy succeeded in stealing the election. I wa going to quote some but thought it intersting enough to post all of it for archives sake. Notice all the lobbyests. He lies.
    WASHINGTON – Celebrities George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey and prominent lobbyists, corporate executives and Democratic fundraisers were among the first to score visits with President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle or top aides at the White House, newly released records show.

    The White House late Friday afternoon posted a list of roughly 480 records in response to questions about whether specific people visited the president’s home. It plans to start disclosing comprehensive visitor lists in coming months.

    The records are a step toward making good on Obama’s promise of transparency. But they also show that despite a campaign pledge to reduce special-interest influence on policymaking, lobbyists are getting face time with him and his aides.

    The visits included in the records released Friday include roughly eight dozen with Obama.

    Among the guests:

    • Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. The wealthy philanthropist had a March 25 meeting with Obama in the Oval Office. The subject isn’t disclosed. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gives about $200 million a year in elementary and secondary education grants and is pressing for some of the same changes that Obama wants, such as paying teachers based on student test scores.

    • Labor leader and Obama supporter Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union. Twenty-two Stern visits to the White House are reflected in the records, including at least seven with Obama. Most of the visits with Obama were for group events; the subjects of most of his visits to other people weren’t disclosed.

    • Ed Yingling, the chief executive of the American Bankers Association and a registered lobbyist. Yingling attended at least four meetings with Obama. One meeting included several bank CEOs; the subjects of the others included credit cards and housing.

    • Camden Fine, chief executive of the Independent Community Bankers of America and a Washington lobbyist for the group. Fine also had at least four Obama meetings, including the ones with bank CEOs and on housing.

    • Clooney, a U.N. messenger of peace, met with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on Feb. 23 to discuss the humanitarian crisis in Sudan’s Darfur region. Clooney has said he asked Obama to appoint a full-time regional envoy to report directly to the White House.

    • Steve Elmendorf, a Democratic strategist, lobbyist and former House staffer. Elmendorf, whose lobbying clients include Ford Motor Co., UnitedHealth Group and Verizon, attended a June 29 Obama reception and had at least four meetings with others at the White House complex.

    Lobbyists and Democratic fundraisers Anthony and Heather Podesta made several visits to Obama aides. Anthony Podesta, whose brother, John, headed Obama’s transition team, visited the White House complex at least five times, all on behalf of lobbying clients.

    “The small number of meetings that I’ve been to at the White House — I go to the White House every other month on the average — have been on issues that the White House cared about,” Anthony Podesta said in a phone interview Friday night when asked whether his fundraising and his brother’s ties to Obama helped land the meetings.

    “I understand that you could interpret it otherwise,” he added.

    Podesta said the first meeting, one in February at the Old Executive Office Building, was to present a report by Securing America’s Future Energy, a group lobbying the government to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

    Podesta said that neither SAFE nor his lobbying clients at a May meeting asked for any action. The May meeting at the White House with Obama aide Pete Rouse and Podesta clients Cessna and NetJets focused on a severe drop in small-plane sales, he said.

    Podesta said he didn’t consider the meeting lobbying.

    “We weren’t saying, `Please give us money’ or ‘Please set up a special program for us,'” Podesta said. “We were just letting the administration know there was this difficult situation in the small-jet manufacturing market.”

    Podesta does consider two other sit-downs — both for client Sallie Mae with Obama education adviser Robert Gordon — lobbying. Podesta said he and Sallie Mae urged the administration to let multiple firms handle student loan originations rather than one company, Accenture. The administration didn’t, so it was failed lobbying, he said.

    Podesta said he didn’t recall having the other meeting listed, one with Obama economic adviser Jason Furman at the White House in March. Podesta’s wife, Heather, made at least three visits, all to Obama aides at the Old Executive Office Building in the White House complex, the records show. The subjects weren’t disclosed.

    Among other visitors, talk show host Winfrey, who campaigned for Obama, interviewed the first lady Feb. 17 and was on the guest list for an inaugural reception.

    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer met with Obama economic adviser Larry Summers and technology adviser John Holdren in June and had a West Wing tour in April, the records show.

    The list also includes some names that would draw attention at first glance: Michael Jordan, Michael Moore, William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright. The White House was quick to note that the visitors were not actually the basketball star, the documentary filmmaker or the controversial activist and preacher — just people who share their names.

    Also top news, ex-candidate, state Assemblywoman Dierdre Scozzafava, threw her support behind the Democrat in the race rather than the Conservative Party candidate favored by fellow Republicans. Holy shat. She really is a RINO.
