Barack Obama – An Angry Black Man in the Wright House; America Pushes Back against Socialist Agenda Promotion of “Black-On-White Spanking Moments”

"the Cambridge Police acted STUPIDLY" -Barack Obama engaging in Presidential Race Baiting against American Police Nationwide for political gain

"The Cambridge Police acted STUPIDLY" -Barack Obama engaging in Presidential Race Baiting against American Police Nationwide for political gain.

Everyone Saw it… Everyone Heard it… Barack Obama Seized an Opportunity to Crap on every single Police Officer in the nation characterizing them as Racist.

“The Cambridge Police Department Acted Stupidly” will follow Obama to the end of days… He meant every word of it and he said it because The Socialist Agenda, his Agenda, uses RACE as a Weapon against Conservatives… in other words, against Whites in this country, and continues to brow beat American Citizens for Slavery to this day. Why? Because it is Socialist “Victimology 101.”

Well… The President got shoved back by the American Public, by both Black Americans and White Americans. The only ones to back the President’s anti-white racism are his anti-white racist Pals.

A Firestorm has ignited, and it is far from over.

Did the President apologize? No.

Instead Barack “walked back” what his post attack damage control agents characterized as  “Obama’s Uncalibrated Comments.”

Calibrate – to plan or devise (something) carefully so as to have a precise use, application, appeal, etc.: a sales strategy calibrated to rich investors.

Obama ever so carefully calibrated the phrase “The Cambridge Police acted STUPIDLY” to effect his desired and intended strategy…. to malign police departments nationwide by promoting Black on White Racism to it’s fullest advantage of Socialist Gain.

Obama got the suprise of his life… when it totally backfired and instead has the opposite effect he so carefully “calibrated” with his “stupidly” attack.

Obama, you can’t “WALK BACK” your heart felt anti-white racism any more than your Pal and Mentor of 20 years, Rev. Wright, can walk back his.

It is an inseparable  part of who you are. That is how it is with Racists.

    Is that mouth sore, Obummer? It hurts trying to put that foot in it.

  2. Foxwood says:

    Of course you could just leave it in. Ask Joe.

  3. samiam60 says:

    VF, you certainly tell it like it is! America is waking up to all the under handed trickery this Prez is trying to dish out. There are so many issues raised now and in such a short time that it is hard to keep up. How can this Prez expect any chance at re-election with behavior such as this so early in his Presidency?

  4. karmahd says:

    Ahhhh Yeah, I agree with everything said in this post!! You can take the racist out of the hood, but you cannot take the hood out of the racist, it is second nature to Obama. He is a pissed off slighted half black man with an agenda!! But the agenda is being uncovered by his daily Freudian slips!!!

  5. karmahd says:

    OK, moving too slow, I will check back with ya’all later…

  6. SamHenry says:

    Hi all. The Socialist-Dictator-In-Chief has come out of the closet.

    He uses a teleprompter to make certain that he adheres to his carefully crafted text not because he can’t speak off the cuff.

    Someone on CNN just remarked: Just maybe we are finally at a point that you can arrest a jerk for being a jerk.

    Bill Bennet is one holding up the debate for us.

  7. SamHenry says:

    It was such a good post, VF that it blew Karm away!

  8. SamHenry says:

    I just can’t get past the point that he made a disclaimer: “I perhaps am prejudice and not all the facts are in…BUT….”

    He lost me right there. I was stunned. An attorney and President did not follow standard protocol in these kinds of situations. IN SAYING WHAT HE SAID, HE CLEARLY MOVED FROM ‘BRINGING US ALL TOGETHER’ TO DIVIDING US; FROM BEING A PRESIDENT THAT REPRESENTS ALL OF US TO BEING AS HE PUT IT ‘PREJUDICE.”

  9. SamHenry says:

    It is understood – the stupidity of the “stupidly” remark.

    PEOPLE – the police in Cambridge do not accept that a person with ID is that person. And even if it is, to protect the Professor in case there were any other prople HE did not know about, he was asked to come out of the house (my recolection of the explanation of why he wanted him out).

  10. SamHenry says:

    PART THREE OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE:

    The lecture on racial profiling – obviously targeting whites. The professor claimed it happened. For the President to explain racial profiling was not only to support his friend over the policeman but to inflame the situation further – a rallying cry to blacks; a point whites were uncertain happened. Division – what the President sought.

  11. SamHenry says:

    The President has been fortunate. He has had one fortunately timed event and one he created to cover the passage of the Health Reform bill:

    1. Michael Jackson’s funeral
    2. The Gates furor.

    The Gates thing will not end anytime soon. As the debate continues it is possible that the President and his words will get lost in the dust and the simplicity of racial profiling will take over.

    As I said at the beginning, I still can’t get past how the President responded to the Cambridge situation. All of the President’s men can relax: He is there for them using the Bully Pulpit to protect them. And he thinks his oratory still has charm to foster change..

  12. VotingFemale says:

    SamH, he carefully calibrated what he said when he said “The Cambridge Police Acted Stupidly” and it was the act of a Presendental Racist Bully.

    What he failed to calibrate was that he is getting his ass kicked for it…

    He picked on the Wrong White Man, in the case of Officer Crowley, of the Cambridge Police Department.

  14. VotingFemale says:

    ObamaCare is not a “Reform of Health” it is designed to cripple the American Public and make them his victims.

    The more I learn what is really in that bill the more I realize just how dangerous are the Socialists.

    2010 can not come soon enough…

  15. ohiobelle says:

    Obummer is showing his racist side these days… Jeremiah Wright is coming out.

  16. VotingFemale says:

    Anyone notice the lack of Media coverage of the events honoring Sarah Palin in Alaska???

  17. ohiobelle says:

    hello vf!

    Did you know that only a black doctor can treat black patients? Who is rasict now?

  18. VotingFemale says:

    Good Morning Belle!

    I see more conservative bitches are arriving!

    ROFL

  19. VotingFemale says:

    Michael Jackson’s doctor is available…

    ohiobelle says

    hello vf!

    Did you know that only a black doctor can treat black patients? Who is rasict now?

  20. ohiobelle says:

    hahaha

    Bitches are in the house!! lol

  21. SamHenry says:

    Sarah Palin coverage: I have noticed negative coverage – and some positive coverage.

    The positive coverage reported that people at the picnicks cheered her when she arrived.

  22. ohiobelle says:

    I am worried to death that this bill will pass!!

    If Obama can’t have this type of health coverage… then his family should!! His family isn’t running this country!!

  23. ohiobelle says:

    I wonder how the Obummers would deal with their children being tossed and treated in this type of f*** up system???

  24. SamHenry says:

    Belle – you are right there be bitches in the house.

    Paul Begala on CNN just said: I went on a fishing trip to Alaska – loved it but the whole two weeks I was there no one mentioned Sarah Palin.

    I guess the fact that satisfied cits don’t have to mention her occurred to him.

  25. VotingFemale says:

    I have created a WordPress search tag and will be including it for all blog posts going forward.

    I rec. we all adopt it to show solidarity… I first heard the term spoken by Rush Limbaugh during his two part interview with Greta on FOX…

    The Search Tag??

    Conservative Blog Network

    WordPress allows spaces in their search tags unlike iReport.

  26. ohiobelle says:

    If it is good enough for our children then it is good enough for his!!!!!

    Did you guys know that they tried this healthcare system in Hawaii and it failed after 7 months??

  27. SamHenry says:

    Belle – it already bothers me that he intimated that the people on this Health Care Plan will not have the same coverage as government employees. I will not pay for gov. employees to have expensive health care.

  28. ohiobelle says:

    ahhhh I LOVE IT!!

    VF wrote: Conservative Blog Network

  29. ohiobelle says:

    Sam, Do you want gov. employees on nationalized health care?

  30. ohiobelle says:

    I have to step away for a few minutes. I’ll be right back.

  31. SamHenry says:

    Conservative Blog Network

    VF – you are creating the Conservative Blog Network?

    FANTASTIC – it will go beyond WordPress?

  32. SamHenry says:

    Belle – I do want gov employees on nationalized health care. If it is good enough for Cits, it is good enough for us and we will save money – I think. They hav the best coverage in the nation.

  33. VotingFemale says:

    It will go as far as people take it…

    SamHenry says

    Conservative Blog Network

    VF – you are creating the Conservative Blog Network?

    FANTASTIC – it will go beyond WordPress?

  34. SamHenry says:

    But you have implemented it – right?

  35. VotingFemale says:

    I have, with this blog post, added that WordPress Search Term.

    I will also write a Blog Post urging as many Conservative Bloggers as possible to associate with the term.

    The Power of US will be the theme…

  36. Foxwood says:

  38. SamHenry says:

    Fox – ever grill a buterflied leg of lamb for special times? Loaded with garlic it is devine! Garlic is necessary in all food IMO. It and not bread is my staff of life!

  39. SamHenry says:

    Cat – I smoke beef brisket but I don’t inhale – lol. It is a good idea – I will try it. I am a traditionalist in my beef brisket prep.

  40. SamHenry says:

    NEWS FLASH. That B…. Mayor of Cambridge who apologized to the Professor and angrily said an investigation would be launched and that it would never happen again in Cambridge – will be on CNN this hour. This entire hour seems to be on the Gates issue.

  41. SamHenry says:

    It’s noon here and I have spent 3 hours on line this AM – 1 over my limit. I will check in periodically. Will miss you all!

    Dog sadly overboard…

  46. ohiobelle says:

    NANCY PELOSI IS A LIAR!!!! THAT SOCIALIST HAG JUST SAID IN ORDER TO SEE JOB CREATION WE MUST PASS THE ENERGY BILL, HEALTH CARE BILL AND THEIR EDUCATION BILL TO CREATE JOBS! WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO THE “SHOVEL READY” JOBS IN THE “STIMULUS” BILL???? THEY WILL SAY ANYTHING TO PASS THEIR SOCIALIST AGENDA!!!!!!!

  47. karmahd says:

    OK I am back and everyone is leaving, ohhhhh well back to cleaning my cave!!

  48. ohiobelle says:

    I am a big believer in prevention as well!!! We need to prevent Pelosi from passing her Socialist agenda!!!

  49. ohiobelle says:

    Hello Karma.

    Did you know that I hate Nancy Pelosi?

  50. Foxwood says:

    I’m grilling bacon wrapped hotdogs, pico de gallo bugers, sirloin, cheddar brauts, and hot thighs (jalapeno wrapped in a boneless chicken thigh wrapped in bacon).

    My kids come over to eat every Sunday.

  51. karmahd says:

    Well Belle yes I did know that, and I do not care for the sniveling stone faced bitch myself, she is a liar of the lowest moral regard!!!

  52. karmahd says:

    Fox, how’s your health LOLOLOLO

  53. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, I’d like to grill Nancy Palosi too, but I’d throw that nasty thing away when I got done.

  54. ohiobelle says:

    Karma wrote: Well Belle yes I did know that, and I do not care for the sniveling stone faced bitch myself, she is a liar of the lowest moral regard!!!

    hahahhaha!! My blood pressure pill hasn’t kicked in yet! I had to take one after listening to more of her LIES!!!

  55. Foxwood says:

    Yeah, Karma, I heard that hotdogs would have a warning label on them. But I hear that bacon is good for the vascular system. Then you draino the veins out with some Jim Beam.

  56. Foxwood says:

    Time to check on the fire.

  57. karmahd says:

    Fox, everything you mentioned that you are cooking sounds real F’ing good to me!! You little nose miners are eating well. As much as I like pork, I believe Pelosi would taste a bit gamey!!!

  58. ohiobelle says:

    Foxwood wrote: Yeah, I’d like to grill Nancy Palosi too, but I’d throw that nasty thing away when I got done.

    hahahaha UGH!!! I am going to have to walk away for a while. I am going to try working in the yard for a while. I already feel sorry for my bushes. lol

  59. karmahd says:

    Ohio, I think a lot of the people we focus on here will be looking for work after 2010. Breath deeply, slow, focus on sunsets and pretty blue water, BP is not something to take lightly, OHMMMMMM OHMMMMMMMM, LOL

    Karma wrote: I believe Pelosi would taste a bit gamey!!!

    haha. That’s funny as hell.

    I’ll check back after I chop up a couple of bushes.

  61. m2 says:

    just a drive-by here. I see VF is calling on search tag, Conservative Blog Network. Excellent thinking.

    I only saw parts of the Greta/Rush interview, but Rush sounded (and looked!) great.

    He’s lost some weight.
    He’s so common sense thank goodness for Rush.

  62. ohiobelle says:

    Karma, my blood pressure spikes up everytime I hear their lies. IT SUCKS!!!

  63. karmahd says:

    Hey M2 who is the person in you Avatar??

  64. karmahd says:

    Jesus turn off the tv and computer, because all we have from this bum is lies, and his crew are all consummate liars. That is truth, they lie!

  65. Foxwood says:

    I like grilled pork like most, but grilled palosi is enough to make you gag. BLEK! I think I just vomited in my mouth a little.

  66. m2 says:

    It is Willow Ufgood!

    From that 80’s wonder movie “Willow” also starring Val Kilmer.

  68. SamHenry says:

    Driveby dog – I can’t watch the wicked witch of Washington at all. I know what she will say and so why subject myself to it. It is like dealing with unkind hecklers on my iReports as I am doing now.

  69. Foxwood says:

    EW! You mean it’s not quite dead yet? Burn it again!

  70. karmahd says:

    I saw that movie M2, pretty good if I remember, and that is the thin Val Kilmer days LOL

  76. karmahd says:

    Grill or stake, tough call??

  77. Foxwood says:

    Or you just put a stake through her. She may be a vamp.

  78. Foxwood says:

  79. Foxwood says:

Almost have a clean cave, have to hang the Weenie dog out to dry, and we loose many a dog and senior’s hands in Florida due to the golf course and Dem Dammm Gators Gets Real Hungry Round May when deys a mating!! Back in da day we used to use chicken necks on a shark hook for our gator tail, (it was illegal when I was a yute to hunt gators), ummmm Gator tail is fine, when you dust it in flower, and pepper and fry it up!!

  106. Foxwood says:

    You can pick up a gator here if you go south far enough and get it before it rots. They drive over them all the time. Best to drive at night and run over it yourself, then you know it’s fresh.

    Well, SamH, You got the couple of old drunks right.

  107. Foxwood says:

    I dig rock n roll music. I really do.

    1962 – You got to swing your lips now!

  117. SamHenry says:

    lol FOX – how is THIS for locomotion. should probably post this in the conference room.

  118. Foxwood says:

    SamH,
    I thought you were going to play the Pee Wee Herman theme song…

  119. SamHenry says:

    When I came back on the blog this afternoon I imagined all of you singing for me….

  120. Foxwood says:

    Karma,

    I don’t know that Oshithead has lied more that Tricky Dick, but it’s close, and Oshithead’s only been in office 6 months.

  121. SamHenry says:

    FOX – this is my swan song for a few. Got to get away from the computer and catch up with Karm – clean the house and the dog!

    Later oh music master. Did my comment that I can usually hum most the the vids you post make it on the blog?

  122. Foxwood says:

    I doubt Oshithead will get the treatment Tricky Dick did,

  123. SamHenry says:

    Dog overboard before VF finds a lot of steamy and seamy Michael Jackson on the blog.

  124. Foxwood says:

    I bet all of you have been waiting for the sirloins… Almost ready…

  125. Foxwood says:

    I hope they find his nose… I’m still betting it will be on ebay.

  126. SamHenry says:

    PS this is for Karm when he gets back – a possible Christmas present for the sausage dog:

  127. LisaInTX says:

    Fox is this what you were looking for:

  129. LisaInTX says:

    Foxwood…we need to find Hattie and procure some real voodoo dolls!! Think you might know where to find her??? lmao….
    We can start out with one for Franks, Pelosi, Reed, Dodd…etc…and add on from there…hahahaaa

  130. SamHenry says:

    I wouldn’t even do that to a voodoo doll

  131. Foxwood says:

    Damn, it’s Monday… 😦

  132. SamHenry says:

    Fox – that Ben Stiller thing is with Gladys Knight and he and others are playing the Pips.

    Lord Douchebag

    Noblewoman…..Laraine Newman
    Nobleman…..Peter Aykroyd
    Butler…..Garrett Morris
    Lord Worchestershire…..Jim Downey
    Lord Salisbury…..Harry Shearer
    Lord Wilkinson…..Tom Davis
    Lady Wilkinson…..Jane Curtin
    Earl of Sandwich…..Bill Murray
    Servant…..Brian Doyle-Murray
    Lord Douchebag…..Buck Henry
    Lady Douchebag…..Gilda Radner

    [ SUPER: SALISBURY MANOR – 1730 ]

    Noblewoman: What a splendid party! I do believe everyone of any importance in England is here tonight.

    Nobleman: Who would miss a party given by Lord Salisbury?

    Butler: [ waiting at the door for guests to arrive ] Lord and Lady Wilkinson!

    Lord Worcestershire: A marvelous entertainment, Salisbury! These chopped steaks are terrific, especially with this delicious mushroom sauce.

    Lord Salisbury: Thank you, Coming from you, Worcestershire, that certainly is a compliment. [ turns to his guests ] Lord and Lady Wilkinson, welcome!

    Lord Worcestershire: Tell me, Wilkinson, what the deuce is the purpose of two swords?

    Lord Wilkinson: It’s simple, really. Let’s say you’re an an attacker. My first blade straightens you upright, while the second clips you neatly at the ankles.

    Lady Wilkinson: And there’s Lady Wilkinson, for attacking your opponent’s underarms and legs!

    Butler: The Earl of Sandwich!

    Nobleman: Tell me, have you seen Lord Cardigan?

    Noblewoman: I understand he was turned away at the door..

    Nobleman: Lord Cardigan? Why in heaven’s name?

    Noblewoman: He wasn’t properly attired. Evidently, he came in a sweater.

    Nobleman: Odd. I saw Lord Ascot, and he got in..

    Butler: The Duke and Duchess of Argyll!

    Lord Worcestershire: You know, Sandwich.. were the Sandwich Islands named after you?

    Earl of Sandwich: Oh, no. Everyone asks me that, but I’m afraid nothing has ever been named after a member of my family.

    Servant: Excuse me, your Lordship, but would you care for one of Lord Salisbury’s steaks?

    Earl of Sandwich: Yes, I would. Would you bring it to me with a couple slices of pumpernickel, please?

    Servant: Yes. [ steps away ]

    Butler: Lord and Lady Doucebag!

    Lord Salisbury: Well, well, well.. I was just asking Lord Sandwich, “Where the devil are those Douchebags?”

    Lady Doucebag: Well, it has been impossible to get him out of his workshop! He has been working day and night.

    Lord Salisbury: You, Douchebag? Well, I wasn’t aware you dabbled in that sort of thing. What in heaven’s name are you working on?

    Lord Salisbury: Well, here is Chambers right now. Would you like something to eat?

    Lord Doucebag: We’re not too hungry right now – just a plate of raw vegetables.

    Lord Salisbury: Would you like some dresing with that?

    Lady Doucebag: Just some vinegar and water, thank you.

    Earl of Sandwich: Douchebag, how are you? I haven’t seen you in the House of Lords in ages! Don’t tell me for the first time in memory we are going to have a House of Parliament without a Douchebag?

    Lord Doucebag: My dear Sandwich, Parliament has always had its share of Douchebags, and it always will.

    Lord Salisbury: Spoken like a true Douchebag. I have often heard the King speak of your family.. [ to Earl of Sandwich ] ..and of yours, as well: “Give me a Sandwich and a Douchebag, and there is nothing I cannot do.”

    Earl of Sandwich: Hear, hear!

    Lord Salisbury: So, tell me, Douchebag.. when are you going to show us that invention of yours?

    Earl of Sandwich: Yes, Douchebag, just what kind of an invention are you sitting on?

    Lord Doucebag: Well, it’s a long story. Why don’t we go out to the garden, and I’ll explain it to you.

    Earl of Sandwich: Tell me – did Lady Douchebag help you in the project?

    Lord Doucebag: Help? Why.. she was the inspiration!

    vf, I linked my new post to Conservative Blog Network!!

  139. Foxwood says:

    Done cooking… Now time for cleanup…

    Arlene… When I was a kid, me and my neighbors and friends used to call ourselves black or white. We said it as descriptive and not as mean or racist. Now, there is no way to say anything, I’m racist no matter what I say. I’ve ran into that with liberal whites all over the US. I was married to a Choctaw woman as dark as you, and it didn’t matter. I was subjugating my woman, even tho she was the one that fell for me. I don’t get the racist thing. I get Conservative or Liberal thinking, and that’s what I think it has to be.

  140. Foxwood says:

    I can tell you for sure, my mom and dad are racist. They couldn’t believe I married a woman of another color. I have to say, I’m happy for myself. Tho I’m no longer married. My daughters and my granddaughter are the best things I have in life.

    My oldest is common law married to a Barrow. That would be relation to Clyde Barrow of Bonny and Clyde fame… I was a little leary of that, but he’s a good kid (29).

    When he said the word “calibrate” or “re-calibrate” I thought of a piece of machinery. There was no way for him to re-calibrate the word “stupidly”. That word no matter how he tried to spin it, it still is a word that maligns.

  156. arlenearmy says:

    Foxwood
    Speaking of black Democrat conservative. What Obama has done by obviously pulling the race card was re-branded all black American people as a whole (democrats & republicans). And the sad part is that that Mother Fu*ker ain’t even homegrown black. He needs to shut his pie hole up! He maligned us. He is trying REAL HARD to put black conservatives in a situation that they will be put in the same crab bucket w/the black democrats.

    Its extremely embarrassing to me of what he did, and I don’t even like his slummy dog ass.

    I went to Walmart today to return a video camera & get a newer one. I had to stand at the counter for over 30 min in the electronic dept. I could feel the tension, as the TV sets played the news of Obama race baiting speech. I felt so bad. I guess the 2 white ladies behind the counter thought I would get pushy. But I was extremely courteous, because I was afraid that I would be perceived as pulling the race card if I requested prompt service. The 2 ladies acted as though they were paralyzed, then they got relaxed.

    THIS IS ALL OBAMA’S FAULT. Things were going fine until he came along. I wouldn’t piss on his scank ass if he was one fire! Now I got to order & start wearing anti-Obama t-shirts EVERY single DAY as further proof that I’m on the right side.

    Obama blaming talk radio for his stalling healthcare “killus and control us all” bill!

    CLEVELAND — July 24, 2009: Discussing health-care reform at a “town hall” Q&A, President Obama said, “You know, all those folks who are out there saying, we can’t afford this; this is socialism; this will lead to government-run health care; all the folks who are getting ginned up on Talk radio and some of these cable news shows, you know, I have to say that they have an effect on members of Congress.”

    The event was held yesterday in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights. Per a Washington Post transcript, Obama said the comments on Talk radio and cable news make members of Congress “nervous.” He continued, “So they need to hear from folks who are saying, in a very common-sense way, this is something we can do.”

    Obama also said it’s “OK” that a health care reform bill may not be produced in the Senate before the August recess. He said, “I just want people to keep working, just keep working.”

  159. SamHenry says:

    Arlene,

    Even in Walmart there are people who will always accept you for who and what you are. It is easy to finally tell the inside of someone no matter their color.

    Remember, in Oklahoma, the Native Americans share your plight and even have a worse time if that is possible. BUT they live in their own country – not part of the US. That is and is not their salvation.

    The sad fact is that people of color and other minorities don’t realize that Europeans have prejudices against each other. My Irish grandmother was stoned on the way home from school in Bridgeport, CT for being Irish and Catholic. If they will do it to other Europeans, they will do it to anybody.

    In England, my English ancestors fought my Scottish ancestors, defeated them and still have problems. IN Scotland itself, my people were lowlanders (Normans from Norway via France) and were considered by Highlanders to be a different race of people – so unintelligent.

    People – some people – everywhere are just plain “stupid” about their fellow humans. But you will always be able to find nice people in ANY population. Keep that in mind always.

    And how about when I lived in Virginia 20 years ago now ladies who were tour guides at the Capitol building in Richmond (and that legislative body produced, what, three Presidents, were just so offish to me because of my accent. They changed their tune – just like the ladies at Walmart, once they talked with me a bit. Silly and stupid!

  160. SamHenry says:

    Obama is divorced from reality. He really thinks he is the great American Mullah with right and might on his side.

  161. SamHenry says:

    I’m glad you got a camera you like, Arlene, I was not sure if you wanted a video camera to record yourself for iReports or to take outside to shoot other places. What did you get?

    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
    Sunday, July 26, 2009 Email to a Friend ShareThisAdvertisement
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11. That’s the first time his ratings have reached double digits in negative territory (see trends).

    These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. Today is the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the President’s prime time televised press conference. The number who Strongly Approve of the President has remained unchanged since the press conference but the number who Strongly Disapprove has gone up by five percentage points (from 35% on Wednesday morning to 40% today).

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

    The President received generally poor grades for his response to a question about a Cambridge police incident involving a black Harvard professor. However, the results show a huge divide between black Americans and white Americans on all questions.

    Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove. It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.

    The President is now seen as politically liberal by 76%. That’s up six points from a month ago, 11 points since he was elected, and the highest total to date. Forty-eight percent (48%) now see him as Very Liberal, up 20 points since he was elected (Premium Members can see trends and crosstabs.)

    (More Below)

    Check out our review of last week’s key polls to see “What They Told Us.” Topics include health care, the economy, 2012, state polls, and more.

    While the President’s ratings have slipped over the past month, 54% believe that President George W. Bush is still primarily to blame for the nation’s economic problems. Just 25% believe that the economic stimulus package has helped the economy.

    California Senator Barbara Boxer is clinging to a four-point lead in her bid for re-election.

    Fifty-three percent (53%) now oppose the Congressional health care reform package. That’s up eight points over the past month. Just 20% now see health care as the most important of the President’s priorities. Nearly twice as many, 37%, say deficit reduction is most important.

    When comparing Job Approval data from different firms, it’s important to keep in mind that polls of likely voters and polls of all adults will typically and consistently yield different results. In the case of President Obama, polls by all firms measuring all adults typically show significantly higher approval ratings than polls of likely voters. Polls of registered voters typically fall in the middle. Other factors are also important to consider when comparing Job Approval ratings from different polling firms.

    A Fordham University professor has rated the national pollsters on their record in Election 2008. We also have provided a summary of our results for your review.

    Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of sampling error—for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters–is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Premium Members.

    Like all polling firms, Rasmussen Reports weights its data to reflect the population at large (see methodology). Among other targets, Rasmussen Reports weights data by political party affiliation using a dynamic weighting process. While partisan affiliation is generally quite stable over time, there are a fair number of people who waver between allegiance to a particular party or independent status. Over the past four years, the number of Democrats in the country has increased while the number of Republicans has decreased.

    Our baseline targets are established based upon separate survey interviews with a sample of adults nationwide completed during the preceding three months (a total of 45,000 interviews) and targets are updated monthly. Currently, the baseline targets for the adult population are 39.0% Democrats, 32.5% Republicans, and 28.5% unaffiliated. Likely voter samples typically show a slightly smaller advantage for the Democrats.

    A review of last week’s key polls is posted each Saturday morning. Other stats on Obama are updated daily on the Rasmussen Reports Obama By the Numbers page. We also invite you to review other recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.

    Main Street’s Sour Loans Surge
    Published: Monday, 27 Jul 2009 | 4:01 AM ET Text Size By: AP
    As the effects of the economic collapse began pouring down Main Street, the government last year was left holding a record $2.1 billion in write-offs of small business loans it had guaranteed.

    Officials expect the number of defaults to rise as the nation continues to climb out of the recession.

    Records obtained under the federal Freedom of Information Act show the public is paying to offset bank losses on small business loans across the country, from a convenience story in the tiny Canadian border town of Houlton, Maine, to a graphic arts design company on the island of Hawaii, more than 5,000 miles away.

    Despite having loans written off, little companies such as Caffe Sportivo, an espresso shop and small gym in Redwood City, Calif., are barely scraping by.

    “I just couldn’t make any payments. I was barely making rent or payroll,” owner Chris Sakelarios said on a recent afternoon when her cafe stood empty except for two patrons who read as they sipped coffee. “The same as everyone else. We’re in a hovering pattern.”

    It’s a sign that even as record profits re-emerge on Wall Street, thanks to massive government loans and guarantees for banks deemed too big to fail, the pain on Main Street is as profound as it’s been in half a century.

    The companies that were not too big to fail are failing. Their plight is a shift from previous recessions when small business bounced back ahead of big employers, said Todd McCracken, president of the lobby group National Small Business Association.

    “This could be the first economic recovery we’ve seen in a long time that hits small business the hardest the longest,” he said. The Small Business Administration purchased $2.1 billion in bad loans from lenders last year. Agency officials say it’s likely that this year will see another high as the recession nears the two-year mark.

    “It’s frustrating when (banks) are getting bailed out for bad decisions they made, that there isn’t more assistance for the small business,” said Eric Geedey, who manages Caffe Sportivo for Sakelarios.

    Sakelarios obtained a $20,000 SBA loan from Union Bank in late 2007 to start her business when the economic outlook was brighter on the affluent San Franciso Peninsula. Within a year, however, she was scraping by with the help of a landlord and vendors who let her adjust payments.

    She has reduced the hours of her seven employees and relies on her brother and a friend to help keep the doors open on weekends. The balance of the loan was written off in early January. In addition to being dogged by bad credit, the cafe will have to report the loan charge-off as taxable income, Geedey said.

    Sakelarios isn’t the only recession victim and she won’t be the last. SBA loan defaults generally occur in two stages. The first is when the bank decides it won’t get its money back and asks the government for the guaranteed portion of the loan.

    In the second, the government decides it won’t get any more collateral or money from the borrower. Years can elapse between the time that the borrower stops paying and the government writes off the loan.

    In 2008, for example, the government concluded it wouldn’t be able to recover $1.3 billion in defaulted bank loans it had guaranteed. Many loans were part of a backlog, according to SBA officials. But an AP analysis found that the time between loan approvals and loan defaults is narrowing.

    According to the analysis:

    More than $235 million in restaurant loans have been charged off since 2007. The 2,586 restaurant charge-offs make up the largest number of defaulted loans, according to the SBA. More than 150 loans made to Quizno’s franchises — worth nearly $15.5 million — have been written off since 2007.
    The Gulf Coast fishing industry, battered by two major hurricanes in 2005, has been hit especially hard. Half of the 10 cities with the highest industry-specific write-offs are in Biloxi, Miss.; New Orleans; Ocean Springs, Miss.; Lafayette, La.; and Abbeville, La. All told, the shellfish fishing industry had 45 loans charged off, at a total cost of $19.5 million.
    The banks making the loans have also been hit hard by the recession. Bank of America [BAC 12.51 — UNCH (0) ], which has received $52.5 billion in government aid, has had nearly 7,000 loans worth $238 million charged off since 2007.
    More than 660 loans worth $174 million have been charged off by CIT Group [CIT 0.75 — UNCH (0) ], a major commercial lender forced to turn to bondholders in an effort to try to avoid bankruptcy protection after the government refused to save the company.

    JPMorgan Chase [JPM 37.92 — UNCH (0) ], which repaid $25 billion in taxpayer loans last month, has written off nearly 2,300 loans worth $117 million.

    “I have never seen it as rough as it is right now,” said Scott Hauge, president of Small Business California, a business advocacy group.

    Small businesses account for half of all private-sector workers and have created roughly half of the nation’s jobs over the past decade. They received some help from the $787 billion federal stimulus package in February, including higher microlending amounts and federal loan guarantees.

    Congress also authorized the U.S. Treasury to purchase $15 billion in pooled loans to encourage lenders to provide money to small companies. The SBA recently announced it will guarantee short-term bank loans to help small businesses pay off existing bills.

    CBO deals new blow to health plan

    Tags:Health Care, Henry Waxman, Democrats, Peter Orszag, Steny Hoyer, Blue Dogs, Reform, Congressional Budget Office, Doug Elmendorf, CBO Back to top Listen Print Comment Email Recommend Subscribe By CHRIS FRATES | 7/25/09 5:49 PM EDT Text Size- + reset

    For the second time this month, congressional analysts have dealt a blow to Democrats’ health reform efforts.

    For the second time this month, congressional budget analysts have dealt a blow to the Democrat’s health reform efforts, this time by saying a plan touted by the White House as crucial to paying for the bill would actually save almost no money over 10 years.

    A key House chairman and moderate House Democrats on Tuesday agreed to a White House-backed proposal that would give an outside panel the power to make cuts to government-financed health care programs. White House budget director Peter Orszag declared the plan “probably the most important piece that can be added” to the House’s health care reform legislation.

    But on Saturday, the Congressional Budget Office said the proposal to give an independent panel the power to keep Medicare spending in check would only save about $2 billion over 10 years- a drop in the bucket compared to the bill’s $1 trillion price tag.

    “In CBO’s judgment, the probability is high that no savings would be realized … but there is also a chance that substantial savings might be realized. Looking beyond the 10-year budget window, CBO expects that this proposal would generate larger but still modest savings on the same probabilistic basis,” CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf wrote in a letter to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Saturday.

    On his White House blog, Orszag – who served as CBO director in 2007 and 2008 – downplayed the office’s small probable savings number in favor of the proposal’s more speculative long-term benefits.

    “The point of the proposal, however, was never to generate savings over the next decade. … Instead, the goal is to provide a mechanism for improving quality of care for beneficiaries and reducing costs over the long term,” Orszag wrote. “In other words, in the terminology of our belt-and-suspenders approach to a fiscally responsible health reform, the IMAC is a game changer not a scoreable offset.”

    But scoreable offsets are the immediate savings that fiscally conservative Blue Dogs and other Democratic moderates have been pushing for precisely because they will help offset the bill’s cost.

    The proposal’s meager savings are a blow to Democrats working furiously to bring down costs in order to win support from Blue Dogs, who have threatened to vote against the bill without significant changes. The proposal was heralded as a breakthrough on Tuesday after Blue Dogs and House Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman emerged from the White House with agreement on giving the independent panel, rather than Congress, the ability to rein in Medicare spending.

    Republicans pounced on CBO’s analysis as another demonstration that Democratic proposals don’t control costs.

    “The President said that rising health care costs are an imminent threat to our economy and that any reform must reduce these long-term costs. But CBO has made clear once again that the Democrats’ bills in Congress aren’t reducing costs and in fact could just make the problem worse,” said Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

    Saturday’s CBO analysis caps a tough week of blown deadlines, partisan bickering and fierce intra-party fighting among Democrats. On Friday, the tension between the Blue Dogs and Waxman exploded when Waxman threatened to bypass his committee and bring the reform bill straight to the House floor without a vote. The move infuriated Blue Dogs who have used their crucial committee votes to leverage changes to the bill.

    But by late Friday, Waxman said their colleagues had pulled the two groups “back from the brink” and back to the negotiating table.

    Still, Hoyer said there was little chance that that the House would pass a health reform legislation before Friday when lawmakers are expected to leave Washington for summer recess.

    House Republican Leader John Boehner’s office said that it’s time to hit the legislation’s reset button.

    “This letter underscores the enormous challenges that Democrats face trying to pay for their massive and costly government takeover of health care. In their rush to pass a bill, Democrats continue to ignore the stark economic reality facing our nation,” said Boehner spokeswoman Antonia Ferrier. “Let’s scrap the current proposal and come together in a meaningful way to reform health care in America by reducing cost, expanding access and at a price tag we can afford.”

    Nancy Pelosi on being unpopular: ‘I don’t care’

    POLITICO 44

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one of the most despised political figures in the country.

    And, frankly, she doesn’t give a damn.

    “No, I don’t care,” Pelosi told POLITICO last Thursday, laughing heartily as she walked beneath the Capitol dome and plunged into a crowd of tourists.

    Last week’s Public Strategies Inc./POLITICO poll brought grim news for Pelosi, revealing that only a quarter of Americans trust the San Francisco Democrat — putting her in the basement with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio).

    Mention of the “trust” question halted the click-clack of Pelosi’s heels against Rotunda marble, and she turned to face the reporter who posed the question.

    “I don’t know about ‘trust’ — I think I’m trusted,” she said.

    “I certainly want to be trusted. I’m not particularly concerned if I’m liked.”

    But month after month of polling shows that the speaker is neither trusted nor liked by the general public — even as she emerges from one of the most productive legislative periods any speaker has ever enjoyed.

    By contrast, Newt Gingrich’s popularity tanked only after his conservative revolution sputtered and he had helped shut down the federal government.

    Gallup now measures Pelosi’s unfavorability ratings at 48 percent — with her favorability index registering a paltry 32 percent.

    That’s 12 points lower than her numbers were just six months ago, during the first flush days of the Obama administration. And it puts the most powerful woman in the country’s history on a par with Dick Cheney and only a few clicks better than Boehner, an unknown quantity to most Americans.

    “Nancy Pelosi is not only vastly unpopular with the American public, but her credibility is waning within her own party,” said Ken Spain, communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

    In a recent interview with POLITICO, Pelosi countered: “Our leadership team is so effective it is driving Republicans to distraction. And they and their allies have decided that I am their target, and they come after me relentlessly — relentlessly. On the left, I have to put forth a bill that’s going to fund the war and the rest, and they’re not happy about that. So none of it is a popularity contest. You just have to be responsible for the job you’re setting out to do.”

    Being speaker is, as she says, an inside job. Pelosi is insulated from the negative effects of low national poll numbers because she answers only to two micro-constituencies — her mostly affluent, overwhelmingly liberal Bay Area district and a 262-member Democratic caucus that respects, fears, follows and largely likes the 69-year-old workaholic.

    “She’s OK,” says one member from the Northeast. “You don’t have to love her, but she’s good. … She’s solid with us, and that’s all that matters, although she could take a real hit internally if we bungle the health care bill. … This week’s going to be the biggest week of her speakership.”

    Adds House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.): “She’s what I like to call ‘operational’ — she knows how to get things done.”

    Sources close to the speaker say she’s so unconcerned with her own popularity she won’t commission national polls, as many congressional leaders often do. But individual Democratic members do test her name in their districts, with results grimly similar to the national data in public surveys.

    Hinky dinky dude.
    His change will blow your mood,
    Your hope is gone
    It won’t be long

    Dems alone can’t deliver Obama health care win

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s push to overhaul health care needs Republican votes, lawmakers from both parties say.

    Democratic and GOP officials acknowledged Sunday that Obama’s ambitious plan would not pass without the aid of a doubtful GOP, whose members are almost united against the White House effort.

    “Look, there are not the votes for Democrats to do this just on our side of the aisle,” said Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., the chairman of the budget committee.

    Rep. Jim Cooper, a Tennessee Democrat and a member of the fiscally conservative “Blue Dogs,” said he doubts the Democratic-controlled House could pass a proposal as it’s drafted now.

    “We have a long way to go,” Cooper said.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, insisted she has the votes to move forward with the plan despite concerns among fiscally conservative fellow Democrats.

    “When I take this bill to the floor, it will win. We will move forward, it will happen,” said Pelosi, D-Calif.

    Not so fast, Republicans said. Sensing a public uneasiness over the pace and price tag of the overhaul, Republicans said the longer the delay, the more the public understands the stakes of a policy that has vexed lawmakers for decades.

    “We could have a plan in a few weeks if the goal is not a government takeover,” said Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C. “We’ve never seen the government operate a plan of any kind effectively and at the budgets we talked about.”

    Democrats countered that their plans — and there are many iterations on Capitol Hill, as committees in the House and Senate work on versions — would expand coverage without adding to the deficit. Even so, they are likely to leave for an August recess without a vote.

    White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said they are “80 percent” in agreement on what a final version will include and are making progress.

    Obama adviser David Axelrod said, “Now, we’re at the final 20 percent and we’re trying to work through those details.”

    That final piece, however, will require GOP backing — something Sen. Mitch McConnell said was unlikely. The Senate minority leader said congressional Democrats are having difficulty selling a health care bill to their own members.

    “The only thing bipartisan about the measure so far is the opposition to it,” said McConnell, R-Ky.

    Conrad and DeMint spoke with ABC’s “This Week.” Cooper appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Pelosi and McConnell were interviewed for CNN’s “State of the Union.” Gibbs spoke on “Fox News Sunday.” Axelrod appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” and CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    “Obama is choreographing a top-down revolution in America – one from which it may take generations to extricate ourselves,” says Farah. “It will be a shame if we learn he was ineligible to serve in the office of president only after he’s gone. If we can force the issue to be addressed while he is still in office, we have a chance of turning back the clock on many of the destructive actions he has taken already. If he’s not able to prove his constitutional qualifications, we might all be able to wake up one day and think of the Obama administration as just a bad dream.”

    Top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh, upset that he’s forced to report his every movement to tax authorities, blasted President Obama for failing to prove he is natural-born citizen of the United States.

We’re up to 16 different ways I have to prove to New York City and state tax authorities where I have been every day – not just work week – but every day, for the past three years.”

    He continued, “Barack Obama has yet to have to prove that he’s a citizen. All he has to do is show a birth certificate. He has yet to have to prove he’s a citizen. I have to show them 14 different ways where the h— I am every day of the year for three years.”

    White House refuses to release president’s law school records

    President Obama’s unwillingness to allow the American public to see his records at Harvard Law School prevents resolution of a continuing controversy over whether radical Islamic influences promoted his admission and financed his legal education there.

    In the video, Sutton says he was introduced to Obama by al-Mansour, a Saudi citizen, who “was then raising money” for Obama.

    Yesterday, WND e-mailed a request to Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor, asking that the White House release Obama’s law school records to resolve the issue.

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Vietor was a frequent spokesman for the Obama campaign’s “Fight the Smears” website, which has been removed from the Internet.

    The L goes to Washington: White House becomes 51st Ward

    July 26, 2009

    BY LYNN SWEET Sun-Times Columnist
    WASHINGTON — It’s a Tuesday in June, and I am in one of the high-ceiling big rooms of the old office building next to the White House.

    As I look around the room at the players assembled here — including this scribe — I’m thinking that with a few twists of fate, this all-Chicago gang could be huddling in Mayor Daley’s City Hall.

    With so many prominent Chicagoans playing key roles in the Obama administration, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has become the 51st ward. “Everyone misses Chicago,” said Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

    Chicagoans in D.C.

    In front of me is Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Obama who today is chairing a roundtable marking the 37th anniversary of Title IX, the sports equity law. Across the room is Arne Duncan, the education secretary.

    Seated in the first row is Tina Tchen, director of the White House public engagement office. Leaning against a wall is Susan Sher, chief of staff for Michelle Obama. In back of me in the vestibule is Daniel Hornung, a graduate of the University of Chicago Lab School who is working this summer for Jarrett. He is a friend of the daughter of Desiree Rogers, the White House social secretary. Marilyn Katz, a public affairs consultant visiting from Chicago, is also at the Title IX event.

    Jarrett, Sher, Duncan and Tchen were all Daley appointees on boards or in top posts at City Hall, as was Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. David Axelrod was Daley’s political adviser. First lady Michelle Obama worked a stint at City Hall.

    The Chicagoans have replaced the Texans in the White House.

    In Washington, the relationships among the key players in government are subject to speculation and fascination over whether there is a “Chicago way” in the six-month-old Obama White House. There is a romanticized notion of Machine politics in the air here, though only remnants of it still exist in Chicago.

    I’ve wisecracked that there are so many Chicagoans in the Obama administration, it’s like covering the 51st Ward. Obama has swept into office with him dozens of Chicagoans, in all kinds of jobs.

    Evanston’s Jon Samuels is in the White House legislative affairs office and Ben LaBolt, a LaGrange native, is a White House spokesman. Ellie Schaefer, from Lincolnwood, runs the White House visitors office. They worked on the Obama presidential campaign.

    The late, great Chicago political scientist Milton Rakove titled one of his books We Don’t Want Nobody Nobody Sent, and that’s what I see so far: concentric circles of interlocking social, personal and political relationships that go back years. The University of Chicago is one focal point; City Hall is another.

    Think Muckety, not machine. (Muckety.com is a Web site that pulls together a person’s interlocking relationships.)

    Jarrett disagrees with my 51st Ward metaphor. The Chicagoans, after all, are now operating on a national and international stage.

    But I brought up the analogy because I wanted to figure out if there is a Chicago sensibility in the Obama White House.

    What was exported from Chicago to Washington, Jarrett said, was “personal relationships that we have that creates a foundation of trust. . . . Some of my closest friends today are people who have been at City Hall,” she said, referring to Sher, Mrs. Obama and Axelrod.

    The Chicagoans at the top tier of the Obama White House have actually known each other longer than they have known the Obamas.

    “We shared a common history in that so many of us did have ties back to City Hall and had relationships that grew out of that experience, and we have grown up in a sense together,” Jarrett told me. “And then to come here together, it would have been much harder without each other.”

    Duncan, the former Chicago Public Schools chief, also brought a contingent with him to Washington.

    “There is a Chicago crowd of people here, and a lot of us learned our politics from some pros,” said Peter Cunningham, who worked for Duncan at CPS. Cunningham, a former speechwriter in Daley’s City Hall, is now assistant secretary for communications and outreach in the Education Department.

    Obama named three Chicagoans — all major fund-raisers — to be ambassadors: Lou Susman to Great Britain, David Jacobson to Canada and Fay Hartog-Levin to the Netherlands. Hartog-Levin’s husband, Daniel Levin, is the chairman of the Habitat Co. Jarrett is the former president and CEO of Habitat.

    Chicago lawyer Ertharin Cousin — who worked on the Obama campaign and is a veteran of city, state and national politics — was nominated last month to be U.S. ambassador to the Rome-based United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.

    Cindy Moelis was tapped by Obama last April to be the director of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. Moelis is a friend of Mrs. Obama and worked with her at City Hall. Moelis later became the executive director of the Pritzker Traubert Family Foundation.

    That’s Pritzker as in Penny Pritzker — the Obama presidential campaign finance chairwoman. Obama headlined a Democratic National Committee fund-raiser at her Lincoln Park home Thursday. Moelis’ husband is Robert Rivkin, who wound up in the Obama administration as general counsel to the Transportation Department. Rivkin is a former CTA general counsel. Jarrett formerly chaired the CTA Board.

    Rivkin’s boss is Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, the former Illinois congressman who worked closely with Emanuel while they were both in the House. (Chicago author Carol Felsenthal, writing for the Huffington Post, noted that Rivkin’s brother Charles, also an Obama fund-raiser, was picked to be ambassador to France.)

    Last month, Obama named Bryan Traubert, Pritzker’s husband, as a member of the commission Moelis now runs. The president also named to the commission Eleanor Kaye Wilson, a former DePaul University official and a friend of Marian Robinson, Mrs. Obama’s mother. Wilson is godmother to Obama daughters Malia and Sasha.

    Last December, Obama said he would try to get back home every four to six weeks. While Obama stopped at his Kenwood home briefly Thursday night, more-regular visits haven’t been possible.

    “The world is a busy place,” Jarrett said.

    Even with all the Chicagoans in Washington, “we’re all a little homesick. Everyone misses Chicago,” Jarrett said.

    about that birth certificate. sami, why do you say the one on the internet is a fake? It looks authentic to me. As I said, my bc has limited info on it. It is not a “long form” but it is the only one I have ever needed to prove my birth. Is there a provision that states the President is required to produce his long form cert?

    Perhaps time would be better spent assuring that the next election will have procedures in place for candidates to prove their birthplace beyond a reasonable doubt. Does anyone know what the current process is?

  221. m2 says:

    As you can see, Lipert is now Senior advisor and has been on Foreign Relations, and National Security, yet his only background is as an aid to the lunatic left, until he joined the navy for 1 weekend a month in 2005.

  222. Foxwood says:

    WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE!

  223. samiam60 says:

    Morning Rose good to see you. You seem well oiled and joyful today. The birth certificate produced is a document which tells of the existence of a real birth certificate. America wants to see the Original Long form Birth Certificate which will state needed information.

  224. rosehips says:

    and sami, loved your description of the wedding. you are a riot my man!

    did vf going golfing this morning????

  225. samiam60 says:

    It is a bit strange that Hawaii is saying they destroyed all the originals in 2001. Wonder why, they don’t take up that much space. But then again Obama spent near one million dollars in legal fees to seal a document that is supposedly destroyed.
    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

  226. rosehips says:

    sami, do you possess your own long form bc? Do you know how you can get a copy?

  227. Foxwood says:

    Best I could find in the Constitution in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5:

    No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    I would think one has to prove beyond a doubt on it myself. The media made a big stink about Bush’s records. It is a media double standard.

  228. samiam60 says:

    Rose I have my long form birth certificate now.
    My mommy gave it to me.
    There is a copy at our city hall where I was born.

    Whood I miss?

    Unnamed Ambassador: Up yours!

  239. rosehips says:

    Well, I think since noone has yet to provide any proof of Obama’s Kenyan birth, I will have to follow through on my plan for an expedition. I am going to combine it with a quest to discover if parasite therapy is really a viable way to treat allergies and immune disorders. People are paying $3000. for a patch that exposing them to parasites. I heard of a DIY guy who flew to Africa and walked barefoot in shit and got the same effect. sami, you are welcome to join me. You have allergies, correct? We can find witnesses to Obama’s birth while you walk barefoot in the countryside and cure what ails you.
    Anyone else want to join?

  240. tellitlikeitis says:

  241. samiam60 says:

    Wait, there is more in my health care kit.

    A certificate for the following:

    100#’s of bacon
    100 dozen eggs
    100 can’s of lard
    100′ of rope
    10 bottles of floor wax
    1 coupon for neutering
    1 bottle of bathtub polish
    1 GPS underskin locator
    1 free Creamation Certificate
    And that’s all I got.

  242. Foxwood says:

    I can walk through gater shit in the swamp. Why would I want to walk through rhino shit.

    You know what they say. Shit’s shit.

  243. tellitlikeitis says:

    Morning Rose! Why do you have to go to Africa to find parasites since we have plenty of them here in th US. Our parasites are called the government local and national. lol

  244. samiam60 says:

    Rose I would love to join you on your trip but I got all the parasites I needed by shaking hands with all the liberals at that Wedding I went too. Thanks for thinking of me though.

  245. Foxwood says:

    What Sami? They forgot the banana peal?

  246. tellitlikeitis says:

  247. Foxwood says:

    I would have thought the anvil on the ledge would have came in the package also. I’ve seen that coyote get hit with that one alot.

  248. samiam60 says:

    Fox, The Anvil was not sent because the postal costs were prohibitive.

  249. Foxwood says:

    They could have given you a coupon for one. I think you got ripped off.

  250. samiam60 says:

    Rose you there? I think you got something on your shoe. Oh look your cured! 🙂

  251. Foxwood says:

    I guess you get used to the smell…

  252. tellitlikeitis says:

  253. Foxwood says:

    Speaking of banana peal, I was walking on the sidewalk the other day and slipped on one. I found out first hand why a banana peal is like music.

    If you don’t C sharp, you’ll B flat.

  254. tellitlikeitis says:

  255. rosehips says:

    well, I’ve gotta get going.

    sami, I think the parasite therapy has a lot of promise. You should check into it. The FDA is doing clinical studies. People have actually cured their allergies just by contracting hookworm. Other immune disorders and diseases are being researched for parasite therapy as well. I know if I had a disorder that showed possible improvement to treatment, I’d try it.

  256. Foxwood says:

    I’m using a weight loss therapy, Rose. It involves tape worms.

  257. rosehips says:

    and I think going on a Parasite Expedition to Kenya has a lot of marketing possibilities. We will find the answers and the cures. I am confident.

  258. rosehips says:

    fox, I discovered the answer to losing weight. It really is simple. Learn to embrace hunger. There is way worse pain than hunger pain. It really isn’t so bad.

  259. rosehips says:

    this is kind of scary:

    “More than two million people living on the banks of Lake Kivu in central Africa are at risk of being asphyxiated by gases building up beneath its surface, scientists have warned.

    It is estimated that the lake, which straddles the borders of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda, now contains 300 cubic kilometres of carbon dioxide and 60 cubic kilometres of methane that have bubbled into the Kivu from volcanic vents. The gases are trapped in layers 80 metres below the lake’s surface by the intense water pressures there. However, researchers have warned that geological or volcanic events could disturb these waters and release the gases.”

    VF – your vid from “Reliable Sources” re “birthers.”

    Laura Ashburn of USA TODAY (a national newspaper conceived of in Rochester, NY by Gannet when still headquartered here) said she is against giving coverage to Birthers views.

    OK folks – first of all, calling skeptics re the birth certificate is tosses them into the realm of childish lunatics. Most important – the idea that we should control opinions just because they seem ludicrous very scary indeed.

    The only “Twisted” thing at VotingFemale are the lines securing the great info ship to the dock “news” from the Socialists.

    Sail on O great ship VotingFemale carrying bloggers of superior ability whose wake has rocked the Socialist boat!

    AND SO IT BEGINS – CHINA’S DOMINANCE OF US FOREIGN POLICY – ECONOMIC POLICY WAS NOT ENOUGH:

    CBS.com 27 July

    President Obama, opening two days of high-level talks with China, said he believed that the discussions could lay the groundwork for a new era of “sustained cooperation, not confrontation” in a relationship likely to shape the history of the 21st century.

    Mr. Obama said that Washington and Beijing need to forge closer ties to address a host of challenges from lifting the global economy out of a deep recession to nuclear proliferation and global climate change.

    Vice Premier Wang Qishan, China’s top economic policymaker, said his country’s attempts to create a more open economy would help U.S. recovery efforts.

    “With the furthering of China’s reform and opening up, China and the United States will have even closer economic cooperation and trade relations and (the) China-U.S. relationship will surely keep moving forward,” Wang said, speaking through an interpreter.

    The discussions in Washington represent the continuation of a dialogue begun by the Bush administration, which focused on economic tensions between the two nations. Mr. Obama chose to expand the talks to include foreign policy issues as well as economic disputes.

    Top officials from both countries have called the relationship crucial to solving many of the world’s crises. The Obama administration hopes the talks can set the groundwork for cooperation on climate change, lifting the world economy out of turmoil and addressing nuclear standoffs with North Korea and Iran.

    Mr. Obama said he was under “no illusions that the United States and China will agree on every issue,” but he said closer cooperation in important areas was critical for the world.

    The cost of a tube is $5 versus ten thousand plus for that surgery and it would be non-invasive to boot!

    Conyers Sees No Point in Members Reading 1,000-Page Health Care Bill–Unless They Have 2 Lawyers to Interpret It for Them
    Monday, July 27, 2009
    By Nicholas Ballasy, Video Reporter

    (CNSNews.com) – During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Democratic Congressman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.

    “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

    “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

  299. rosehips says:

    tellit, thanks for the vids and the parasite alert. It is certainly a concern that some parasites can do much harm. I guess everything has it’s down side. I still like the promise that hookworm therapy has for allergies and ibd’s and ms.

    My ex and his third wife made a huge deal over my oldest son’s warts. They took him to a dermatologist who prescribed $100. medicine that he needed to have renewed at least twice. They wanted me to buy into this wart removal regime. My doctor in Canada told me there was no totally effective way to get rid of warts but they would eventually go away on their own. I had warts as a child and warts as an adult. They went away eventually, on their own. The same for my son after the expensive treatment didn’t work. They eventually disappear.

  300. rosehips says:

    Our body’s can do amazing things to cure ourselves but our use of antibiotics and disinfectants have messed with the normal processes for disease control. Normally that woman’s immune system may have prevented the worms from infecting her brain.

    I once picked a bunch of wild mushrooms that are considered gourmet. I traded with a guy at a little Barter Faire up in Canada. They guy was European. I discovered afterwards that the shrooms had a bunch of little squggly worms in them. I went and told the guy but he was unconcerned. He said it is normal for wild mushrooms to have worms. Not exactly appetizing, but I am less squeamish about worm in my veggies. I’d rather worms than pesticides.

  301. rosehips says:

    and VF, sorry if I got off topic with talk about parasites.

    I think we are all in agreement that Obama made a fatal flaw when he called the police action stupid. My ex used to try to make the excuse that he wasn’t calling me stupid when he said something I did was stupid. But I am not stupid and I know if someone says what I did was stupid even if they don’t say I am stupid that they are calling me stupid because aren’t stupid acts commited by stupid people?

    I don’t think it is very presidential to call anything or anyone stupid. I don’t think we may ever know the exact exchange between the police officer and the professor, but I tend to believe that the po was doing his job and the professor was looking for a reason to cry racism. Obama should not have spoken until he had all the facts. Throwing racist accusations at a police is a serious deal. Pretty stupid thing to say without proof.

  302. tellitlikeitis says:

    Hi Rose , That coke in pork video was too much. I make sure that any meat I eat is cocked to the point of almost turning charcoal. There is no moo left in my steaks if you know what I mean. lol

  303. samhenry says:

    Good deal, Rose. You understand what few citizens understand – what the Prez said was unfortunate – but they and he get caught up in this.

    The key – he should not have got into it until all the facts were in. THEN he could support his friend and give the background on racial profiling.

    In doing as you and I agree, he would also have represented all of this people – his job. For better or worse, he represents the Police Officer as well.

    RH has said: I don’t think it is very presidential to call anything or anyone stupid. I don’t think we may ever know the exact exchange between the police officer and the professor, but I tend to believe that the po was doing his job and the professor was looking for a reason to cry racism.

    Stumbling Governors Signal Trouble for Dems

    By Michael Barone,

    With polls showing a drop in Barack Obama’s job rating and sinking support for the Democrats’ health care plans, there is evidence of collateral damage where you might not expect to find it: in the standing of Democratic governors. Pennsylvania’s Ed Rendell suddenly is getting negative job ratings in both the Quinnipiac University and the Franklin & Marshall College polls — his lowest marks in seven years as governor. Ohio’s Ted Strickland, who has spent most of his first term working amicably with Republican legislators, scores less than 50 percent in the latest Quinnipiac poll and has only tenuous leads over two Republicans, John Kasich and Mike DeWine, who may run against him next year.

    In the two gubernatorial races being contested this year, Republicans seem to have advantages. In Virginia, Republican Bob McDonnell has led Democrat Creigh Deeds in all but one poll and picked up the support of Black Entertainment Television billionaire Sheila Johnson, one of the biggest contributors to the incumbent, Democratic National Chairman Tim Kaine. New Jersey incumbent Jon Corzine, who spent more than $100 million on narrow wins for senator in 2000 and governor in 2005, is 15 points behind Republican Chris Christie. Corzine will not be helped by the indictment of multiple Jersey pols, most of them Democrats, in a case initiated by Christie when he was a U.S. attorney.

    There’s an argument that these results hold little relevance to the standing of the national parties. Almost every state faces severe fiscal problems, and standoffs between a governor and a legislature can drag the governor’s ratings way down, as in the case of California’s Arnold Schwarzenegger. Moreover, a governor’s personal strengths and weaknesses can override party identification; one of the nation’s highest-rated governors is Dave Freudenthal, a Democrat in very Republican Wyoming.

    Even so, these numbers should be troubling for Democrats. Rendell and Strickland are attractive personalities with some penchant for centrist policies. Both were suggested as possible running mates for Barack Obama. (Both sensibly swatted away those suggestions.) Corzine is running in a state that, with a rising immigrant population and an outflow of affluent residents, has been solidly Democratic for a dozen years. Altogether, these states have 69 electoral votes, and Obama won all four by comfortable margins last November.

    Democratic governors in other important states also have been getting low marks from voters. North Carolina’s freshly elected Bev Perdue has only 26 percent of voters willing to re-elect her. Colorado’s Bill Ritter, Washington’s Christine Gregoire, Oregon’s Ted Kulongoski, Wisconsin’s Jim Doyle, Massachusetts’ Deval Patrick and Michigan’s Jennifer Granholm have been getting sub-majority voter approval most of the year.

    These governors are mostly able and attractive people, and every one of their states voted for Obama. None of them is tarred by scandal or not up to the job, as seems to be the case with the nation’s lowest-rated governors, Nevada Republican Jim Gibbons and New York Democrat David Paterson.

    I take all this as evidence — not conclusive evidence, but significant evidence — for the proposition that economic distress does not predispose voters to favor bigger government. Not all the reasons for these governors’ negative job ratings arise from debates over the size of government, but many do — and voters clearly are not hankering for more government.
    When you put these results together with Obama’s slide in the polls, they suggest trouble for big-government Democrats. Pollster Scott Rasmussen now shows Obama with only 49 percent job approval; when he asked voters which party they’d like to represent them in the House, Republicans came out ahead of Democrats.

    Some analysts will point out that Rasmussen’s results tend to be more negative for Democrats than those of other pollsters. That’s because, as Rasmussen explains, he uses a likely-voter formula that tends to assume that first-time voters in November 2008 will not turn out in force in 2009 or 2010.

    That seems to have been the case so far in most 2009 special elections and primaries. In off-year elections without Obama on the ballot, it seems unlikely that young blacks will turn out in larger proportions than young whites, as the Census Bureau reported happening in 2008. Democratic candidates will have to make their own cases, and the governors’ job ratings suggest their prospects may be dicey.

    Gibbs: Birther issue ‘nonsense’
    By ALEXANDER BURNS

    White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs once again dismissed conspiracy theories about the president’s citizenship …

    … in his daily briefing Monday, noting that proof of President Obama’s birthplace had been posted online and Obama’s citizenship had been demonstrated “ad nauseam.”

    But Gibbs, sounding alternately bemused and exasperated, told White House reporters that conspiracy theories about the president’s birthplace would never go away.

    “I hate to indulge, in such an august setting as the White House briefing room…the made-up, fictional nonsense whether the president was born in this country,” Gibbs said. “If I had some DNA, it wouldn’t assuage those who believe he wasn’t born here.”

    Attempting to put the issue to rest, once more, Gibbs assured reporters: “The president was born in Honolulu, in the 50th state of the greatest country on the face of the earth…There are 10,000 more important issues for people in this country to discuss, than whether or not the president is a citizen when it’s been proven ad nauseam.”

    Asked to speculate on why conspiracy theorists continue to fixate on the issue, Gibbs joked: “Because for $15 you can get an Internet address and say whatever you want.”

And 1 commenter said that his comment was deleted last night (not surprising. Socialists like Huff Po writers can’t stand free speech, afterall)… This is what the commenter said:

    Wow…this is really scary. My comment that disagreed with you, which shown last night is not on today. So much for freedom of speech, Jason. In fact, I am noticing that several of the posts that disagreed with you are gone. Yikes. We are being a Socialist country.

    Looks like he was NOT born in Hawaii, that’s why he doesn’t have a birth certificate.

    Let’s not forget he said in his book, Dreams of My Father, he found his “birth certificate” when he was a teenager.

    Don’t you think that’s a weird thing to write in a memoir? Kind of like reverse-psychology. Like if he just says he has one, they can go “oh look he says in his book written years ago he has one”

    Obama 2004: Bush Rushed Legislation Through Congress Without Allowing Time to Read Or Debate
    By P.J. Gladnick (Bio | Archive)
    July 27, 2009 – 20:02 ET

    Hypocrisy alert!

    A heretofore “unknown” 2004 interview with Barack Obama by leftwing radio host Randi Rhodes has just emerged. And basically, as you shall hear, Obama is saying do as I say, not as I do. In this case he was referring to quickly forcing legislation through congress. As you can hear in this interview, uncovered by Naked Emporer News, the hypocrisy seems so massive that it is destined to go viral on the Web. It features Randi Rhodes back during her Air America days interviewing then senator-elect Barack Obama on November 22, 2004. And despite the fact that Randi is currently pretty well hidden from public view, you can be sure she will soon be talked about again because of her inadvertent exposure of incredible hypocrisy on the part of Obama. And what was the hypocrisy? His complaint that the Bush administration was rushing legislation through congress without giving the legislators time to read the bills or allowing for much debate.

    To get the full flavor of the Obama hypocrisy, be sure to listen to the YouTube clip which also includes a video of MSNBC’s Chuck Todd discussing why Rahm Emanuel felt the need to Rahm, I mean ram, legislation through congress. Here is the transcript which picks up at the 55 second mark:

    BARACK OBAMA: …When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what’s in them and nobody has read them.

    RANDI RHODES: 14 pounds it was!

    BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear deliberation or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean you remember that there was no real debate about that. It was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by the administration.

    The YouTube clip then segues to comments made last March by Chuck Todd of MSNBC describing Rahm Emanuel’s rationale for rushing legislation through congress:

    CHUCK TODD: And a few things that I feel like that I’ve picked up from these guys. Number one is that they are very aware. Rahm Emanuel is Chief of staff…had experience in the Clinton White House. And he is trying to learn every lesson from those days of Clinton and apply it to Obama. So number one is, don’t deal with just one big issue. One of the reasons why, for instance, they thought health care went down is you had one issue sitting out there when Hillary Clinton introduced it. We all focused on it in the media. And the opposition got to organize and stop it. And you can kill anything in this town if you set an idea out here long enough and give the opposition time to organize and stop something. And I don’t care which side of the aisle you’re on. You can kill anything in Washington doing that. And I think they’re attacking it this way: saying we’re going to push 3 or 4 different things. Because they believe the opposition won’t have time to unite and kill all of it.

    So kudos to Randi Rhodes for exposing the massive hypocrisy of one Barack Obama although she wasn’t aware of it at the time. And why is it that it is once a blog, and not the MSM, that has dug up this very revealing interview?

    Hey guys!

    Arlene, I don’t have the book but I have seen the source via here:
    http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=103796

    Also scroll down to the letter the WH displayed from the hospital (for 6 months) before the hospital the WH claims denied him. LOL

    This part from 2/3rd in the article:
    “In his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” Obama says he found his birth certificate as a child, but he didn’t describe what information it contained.”

  352. m2 says:

    There is more over-whelming evidence at this point of him being an alien.

    Especially since the only way to live in Indonesia would have been to be a citizen. Which makes sense, because non-citizens were denied passage during war time is what I heard. Also heard that Indonesia doesn’t allow duel nationality… and he was a child in school as a citizen, and that

    when he was 20 he had to sort out his citizenship and used his “foreign” status to acquire “AID” for his schools which is why he will not release ANY of his school records

    the hospitals in HA deny him.
    His grandma (paternal) say he was born in Mombasa Kenyan hospital..

    *shrugs*…

    gm peeps.

    m2, that article in huffpo talks about Orly Taitz as if she was a man. It got kind of garbled in the end.

    Orly Taitz is that crazy dentist from Southern Cal. There was something on Berg’s website, I think, about Berg filing a lawsuit against Orly. I forget the details. I think she is a publicity seeker.

    The birth cert issue was the top story this morn on Yahoo news. Did you see it? The director of the DOH in Hawaii verified that Obama’s bc is real and he was born in Hawaii.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090728/ap_on_re_us/us_obama_birth_certificate;_ylt=AkASoliPvToOeMKzV.hlgHOCfNdF

  355. m2 says:

    I didn’t even read the article!
    I just skim over it…

    Accd. to HA procedure they CAN verify that a BC is real because you can have one issued without being born there. And they can in fact use their “system” to say it is verifiable.

    Alls he has to do is release the details…
    He could have done that in P. Berg’s case, and put a squash to any other lawsuits in the future…

    BUT nnoooooooo!

  356. m2 says:

    I posted huff po link b/c of the comments not the article.

    this explains the HA standards very well:
    1. Under Hawaiian law, it is possible (both legally and illegally) for a person to have been born out of state, yet have a birth certificate on file in the Department of Health.

    A. From Hawaii’s official Department of Health, Vital Records webpage: “Amended certificates of birth may be prepared and filed with the Department of Health, as provided by law, for 1) a person born in Hawaii who already has a birth certificate filed with the Department of Health or 2) a person born in a foreign country” (applies to adopted children).

    B. A parent may register an in-state birth in lieu of certification by a hospital of birth under HRS 338-5.

    C. Hawaiian law expressly provides for registration of out-of-state births under HRS 338-17.8. A foreign birth presumably would have been recorded by the American consular of the country of birth, and presumably that would be reflected on the Hawaiian birth certificate.

    D. Hawaiian law, however, expressly acknowledges that its system is subject to error. See, for example, HRS 338-17.

    E. Hawaiian law expressly provides for verification in lieu of certified copy of a birth certificate under HRS 338-14.3.

    F. Even the Hawaii Department of Home Lands does not accept a certified copy of a birth certificate as conclusive evidence for its homestead program. From its web site: “In order to process your application, DHHL utilizes information that is found only on the original Certificate of Live Birth, which is either black or green. This is a more complete record of your birth than the Certification of Live Birth (a computer-generated printout). Submitting the original Certificate of Live Birth will save you time and money since the computer-generated Certification requires additional verification by DHHL.”

    2. Contrary to what you may have read, no document made available to the public, nor any statement by Hawaiian officials, evidences conclusively that Obama was born in Hawaii.

    A. Associated Press reported about a statement of Hawaii Health Department Director Dr. Fukino, “State declares Obama birth certificate genuine.”

    B. That October 31, 2008 statement says that Dr. Fukino “ha[s] personally seen and verified that the Hawai’i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement does not, however, verify that Obama was born in Hawaii, and as explained above, under Hawaiian policies and procedures it is quite possible that Hawaii may have a birth record of a person not born in Hawaii. Unlikely, but possible.

    C. The document that the Obama campaign released to the public is a certified copy of Obama’s birth record, which is not the best evidence since, even under Hawaiian law, the original vault copy is the better evidence. Presumably, the vault record would show whether his birth was registered by a hospital in Hawaii.

    D. Without accusing anyone of any wrongdoing, we nevertheless know that some people have gone to great lengths, even in violation of laws, rules and procedures, to confer the many benefits of United States citizenship on themselves and their children. Given the structure of the Hawaiian law, the fact that a parent may register a birth, and the limited but inherent potential for human error within the system, it is possible that a parent of a child born out-of-state could have registered that birth to confer the benefits of U.S. citizenship, or simply to avoid bureaucratic hassles at that time or later in the child’s life.

  357. m2 says:

    A. Had he disclosed his vault copy in the Berg v. Obama lawsuit (which was the first lawsuit filed on the question of his eligibility to be President), and it was established he was born in Hawaii, that would have constituted res judicata, and acted to stop other similar lawsuits being filed. Without res judicata (meaning, the matter is adjudged and settled conclusively) he or government officials will need to defend other lawsuits, and valuable court resources will be expended. Strategically from a legal standpoint, therefore, his refusal to disclose doesn’t make sense. Weighing factors such as costs, resources and complexity of disclosing versus not disclosing, he must have reason of considerable downside in disclosing, or upside in not disclosing.

  358. rosehips says:

    the website below has a lot of info about the different cases and results. It talks a little about the squabble between Taitz and Berg. She revealed info that Berg got pissed about. a birthdate and ss#. But I think it goes much deeper. There seems to be quite the battle brewing. A couple of drama lovers. Maybe they should hook up. hahaha

  360. tellitlikeitis says:

    Good morning everyone! Ok, I f the BC is real lets see it. Why not produce it and put this all to rest. I do not trust the Hawaiian officials. They are all democrat party hacks in the tank for Obama.

  361. rosehips says:

    I am swamped with schoolwork this week and am having a yard sale on Sat. dang. so much to do. won’t be able to spend much time here.

  362. m2 says:

    I think for a job to be Commander in Chief, it is not to much to ask to release details of the long-form, esp when every hospital denies his mother & him being there, and to release school records.

    Don’t you guys?

    Honestly?
    Common sense.

    The NYT properly analyzed McCain, and his health records and school records.

    That AP article give no details but a man, with the controversy surrounding this issue -the lawsuit, the other records, the hospital… I find the AP article disingenuous since it contains no factual material but 1 witness. And the nasty term “birther” which Liberal Obama supporters confirmed upon the doubters. That in and of itself is reckless journalism for AP, and I am fairly disgusted with their obvious bias.

    What has become of the News media who is supposed to be credible? Seek facts? Look at all the sides, including the reason I listed.

    That is a travesty.

    And as it stands, the issue will grow.
    They cannot bully and threaten genuine people by calling them a name and laughing it off.

    Sorry, but there are real legs to this, and maybe if he released his school transcripts he wouldn’t have to release the details oh his longform, but as it stands:

    The lawsuit
    All of his sealed papers
    the hospital
    the family giving diff. stories

    That won’t die. No matter what the cynical, biased and shameful liberals in media call people.

  363. m2 says:

    Obama’s poll numbers aren’t getting any better.
    And when people suffer the Obama Misery Index, in the economy HE CREATED…

    It will grow. Disdain.

    and they will ask for answers to why he was not properly vetted, and the media will suffer as they already have.

    They invested a lot in Obama. They can’t see their investment crumble. Especially NYT and “GE” (ie. NBC)

  364. tellitlikeitis says:

    m2, As his pole numbers go down and the sheen wears off this will give the give the democrat power brokers more reason to get the truth out on his origin of birth. I think the birth issue is their secret weapon to blow him out of the water if they see him destroying the party. The truth is going to come out eventually. If the real document exists then lets see it and let it be scrutinized by the experts. The so called birthers must be having an impact because the issue is still in the news.

  365. m2 says:

    Tellit, it won’t go away. Which is exactly why he should have settled the Berg case.

  366. m2 says:

    Cambridge Police Officer Kelly King:

    “It’s unfortunate, I supported him. I voted for him. I will not again…I think it’s admirable that he would speak on behalf of his friend, but he should have recused himself. He should have stepped back, and he should have said, ‘I support my friend, but I don’t have all the facts. I won’t weigh in yet.'”

  367. m2 says:

    You see Tellit, you are right.

    Rt now the media is to invested in Obama. They carried him through the campaign, for him to fail would mean they fail. A total loss of credibility. A vote of NO confidence.

    Obama is at the point of no return. When the pt. passes, and the Congress is hated/mistrusted by 76% of people like they are now, and his poll numbers decay, and his policies exert more harm to jobs than good…

    See the media turn, along with the Plan B by Democrat Party. Like you say, Tellit.

    SamHenry and VF, Good luck at the doctors.

    You are so very nice, Tel. I had tests for allergies – you know the railroad tracks on your arm – itchy scratchy. Trees, grasses, dust mites and dogs. I will have shots for all of that. I go on in a couple of weeks for my foot, then a couple of more tests and we start again the first of the year. At my age, I should just take an aprtment near the medical center and eat in the hospital cafeteria.

    See all of you later, I hope. If not, tomorrow for sure!

    I notice everybody went to the doctor today. So did I. I had to get my BP checked for my BP meds. I’m Ok, but I asked my Doc his opinion on the healthcare plan. He told me one of the reasons he left Canada was because of the deathcare plan for the elderly in Canada and now he sees it coming here.

    He also said he has to start adding his patents to the Universal Care database and he has to buy the software from the government to do this. He also has to pay for the data processors to do the job.

    I guess he aught to do this out of the goodness of his heart and not pass it on to me, his patient, or he might be considered a greedy bastard.

So I hear their is a bipartisan health bill coming down the road, I saw this online today, and have not read the news, but I have one question.

    “What are they giving the Republican politicians to jump on board with ANY kind of government run health care!!!

    I have a thought, focus on fixing medicare, Amtrack, the Postal Service, and do you not think it is odd that Social Security has not even been mentioned, was that not the biggest crisis we had prior to the micro depression we are now in. And by the way, this administration, has made the situation much worse than it had to be. Tax cuts in February would be kicking in right about now, take that 787 billion stimulus money and give it back to the people, because we are not feeling its effect, nor will we feel the effect of a pork laden bull shit vote at night bill that was PAYBACK, and to buy votes. I guess this is turning into a rant. Oh well wake up Rip Van Karma in 3.5 years, I will meet you at the voting booth. It ain’t gonna nothing but worse as far as government intervention over the next, OH SAY 6 months until this administrations bully pulpit bull shit spending stops!!

  391. LisaInTX says:

    Hey all. check this out and take a look at this link below. Very interesting!!!

    When the liberal Washington Post which wrote a scathing article about Baucus, they tried to interview him for the article. He declined to be interviewed, sending his surrogate. Baucus’ spokesman, Tyler Matadorf, said “…the Senator is only driven by what’s right for the country. And, he will continue his open process of working together with the (…), his colleagues in Congress, and groups and individuals from the across the nation to get this legislation passed.” (Especially if they have ten thousand bucks in their pocket.)

    Since 1989, healthcare industry lobbyists have donated $298.9 million to influential House and Senate incumbents. Just since the current round of negotiations on the Hill, $5 million has reached the pockets of Republicans and Democrats alike. As lobbyists for the healthcare industry poured money into the coffers on Capitol Hill, they filled Baucus’ various PAC war chests to the tune of $3.8 million since 2003. Of the $3.8 million taken by Baucus, less than 10% of those contributions came from individuals or corporations from within Montana. Charles Grassley [R-IA], the senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee picked up $2.5 million in legal healthcare kickbacks. House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Charlie Rangel [D-NY] received $1.6 million from the health sector and Dave Camp [R-MI], the ranking Republican, received $1 million. John McCain [R-AZ] received $546 thousand; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell [R-KY] received $425 thousand. In the House, Minority Leader John Boehner [R-OH] received $257 thousand and Minority Whip Eric Cantor [R-VA] received $249 thousand. John Dingall [D-MI] took $180 thousand from the health sector; and Earl Pomeroy [D-ND] took $104 thousand. Senators Barbara Boxer [D-CA] and Diane Feinstein [D-CA] were the 20th and 25th largest recipients (out of 100 members) of health sector money in the US Senate. Once again entrenched, institutionalized members of Congress are proving that their true constitutents are not the voters who cast the ballots that re-elect them, but the money barons who fill their campaign war chests.

    Edward T. Kennedy [D-MA], an advocate of universal healthcare for decades, was the recipient of $2.6 million from healthcare reform advocates who desperately want to get their “fair share” of the government’s healthcare plan. Too bad Sen. Kennedy doesn’t qualify for the same mediocre medical care other seniors with a terminal illness will get under Obama’s healthcare plan. If he did, there wouldn’t be enough PAC money in the world to swing his vote. Since socialized medicine has already made it through the Senate Finance Committee, if the House version, H.R. 3200, of the America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (which actually eliminates all choice) somehow runs the gauntlet of the 233-member conservative alliance that derailed Nancy Pelosi’s Healthcare Express, America will become a third world healthcare provider within three years. But Congress will have eliminated the pressure cap on both Social Security and Medicare because many of the double-dippers in those systems will no longer be with us.

    The Congressmen and Senators who are feasting on the largess of the lobbyists for the healthcare industry vying for their share of the new revenue opportunities in healthcare industry will collect their legalized bribes and, without a second thought about what they’ve done to the American people, they will simply move on to the next piece of legislation and the next opportunity to fill their campaign coffers at the expense of the rest of us. How long will it take before the American people realize the guy (or gal) with the largest campaign war chest is the person you absolutely have to vote out of office?

    CODE OF ETHICS FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICE

    Any person in Government service should:

    1. Put loyalty to the highest moral principals and to country above loyalty to Government persons, party, or department.

    2. Uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and of all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.

    3. Give a full day’s labor for a full day’s pay; giving to the performance of his duties his earnest effort and best thought.

    4. Seek to find and employ more efficient and economical ways of getting tasks accomplished.

    5. Never discriminate unfairly by the dispensing of special favors or privileges to anyone, whether for remuneration or not; and never accept for himself or his family, favors or benefits under circumstances which might be construed by reasonable persons as influencing the performance of his governmental duties.

    6. Make no private promises of any kind binding upon the duties of office, since a Government employee has no private word which can be binding on public duty.

    7. Engage in no business with the Government, either directly or indirectly which is inconsistent with the conscientious performance of his governmental duties.

    8. Never use any information coming to him confidentially in the performance of governmental duties as a means for making private profit.

    9. Expose corruption wherever discovered.

    10. Uphold these principles, ever conscious that public office is a public trust.

    Obama: Reform does not include cutting Medicare

    My fear is Medicare but ALSO my Blue Cross/Shield back up from my old employer. Because I worked for a Pharmaceutical company that is now being bought out, I am concerned about losing the excellent benefits I have at little cost – but MOST of all, my RX benefits far outstrip the GOV plan.

    Conyers Sees No Point in Members Reading 1,000-Page Health Care Bill–Unless They Have 2 Lawyers to Interpret It for Them
    Monday, July 27, 2009
    By Nicholas Ballasy, Video Reporter

    (CNSNews.com) – During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill.

    “I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said Conyers.

    “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?”

    Lisa – here’s a horse story of a different color:

    BY JOHN ALLEMANG

    From Wednesday’s Globe and Mail Last updated on Wednesday, Jul. 29, 2009 02:53AM EDT

    They’ve faced down rioters, brought rampaging drunks to their senses, cleared drug traffickers out of city parks and helped an embattled police department win its share of PR victories, especially among small children.

    But now the economic crisis has done what the bad guys couldn’t do: laid low the massive and meticulously trained horses of Boston’s mounted patrol unit. At the end of June, the city’s police commissioner disbanded the unit, replacing the 650-kilogram animals with bicycles in a cold-hearted move that could serve as a sign of law enforcement’s recession-era realities: four legs bad, two wheels good.

    “It’s been devastating,” says Fran Jurga, a Massachusetts equine advocate and a blogger on hoof care, who recalled the central role played by the horses at such tempestuous events as the desegregation of Boston schools and the rowdy Red Sox 2004 World Series victory. “It may seem like an easy half-million to cut from a police budget, but getting rid of these horses is extremely short-sighted.”

    Recessions by their very nature make decision makers short-sighted, and that bottom-line mentality has imperilled many police horses beyond Boston’s stable of 12. U.S. cities large and small – such as Portland, Ore.; Toledo, Ohio; Dover, N.H.; Roanoke, Va.; and Camden, N.J. – have all had to face the possibility that their mounted units are finally going the way of the horse and buggy.

    Police cruisers are clearly faster when it comes to emergency response. Bicycles are seen to be just as mobile, at a fraction of the cost. Highly trained and heavily armoured SWAT teams supply a more intimidating presence, if that’s what’s required. And the public-relations benefit of big-eyed, tail-switching draft horse is all but impossible to measure, even if their attention-getting qualities are undeniable, and their adorability has no peer in policing’s arsenal.

    “You don’t need a cop on every corner when just one cop sitting high on a horse can clear out three or four blocks. All the bad guys in the neighbourhood leave when they see us.”

    “We’re on the chopping block,” says Greg Mack, an officer with Portland’s mounted unit who has trained with the RCMP’s Musical Ride and whose horses have been featured on the Fox series Cops . “We dodged a bullet this fiscal year, but we’re at the top of the list of things to be cut next year.”

    Horses make easy targets for the budget-cutters: They appear to be a frivolous expense, a nostalgic relic of another age that has no place in up-to-date crime-fighting; even the Mounties restrict their splendid animals to ceremonial detail and crowd-pleasing entertainments.

    For University of Toronto criminologist Mariana Valverde, this skeptical approach to mounted units is long overdue. “Bicycles have made horses redundant,” she says. “It doesn’t make sense to waste money on expensive horses when there are potholes that need to be filled.”

    That’s certainly an attitude that’s prevailed in Camden, N.J., a troubled city of 79,000 with high rates of both unemployment and crime.

    “We have bigger concerns than horses,” says Camden police spokeswoman Teresa Archambeault, whose department just pensioned off its last two horses. “We’re sad to see them go, but because of the budget crunch, the bigger priority is to get the equipment needed for the city to fight crime.”

    Horses may not look like modern crime-fighters, but appearances are deceptive, says Officer Mack. In fact, their very visibility is in itself an efficient law-enforcement tool.

    “People don’t understand the benefits of a mounted unit,” he said. “You don’t need a cop on every corner when just one cop sitting high on a horse can clear out three or four blocks. All the bad guys in the neighbourhood leave when they see us.”

    The value of deterrence, the crime that doesn’t happen, is hard to measure. What’s more obvious is the controlling effect that police horses, which are bred for their imposing bulk and selected for their calm demeanour, can have on a crowd threatening to run riot.

    In Dover, N.H., where horses keep a wary eye on bar patrons mingling about at closing time and discourage Red Sox fans from celebrating too boisterously, Officer Michelle Murch accepts the fact that the budget bean-counters may prefer police cruisers because they cover a much bigger area.

    Her mounted unit was cut from the city budget two years ago, and now finds much of its support from private donations and fundraisers such as the Horseshoes for Heroes dinner-auction.

    But, she notes, “when you’re facing 3,000 kids, it’s not the canine unit or the police in riot gear that can move the crowd. Horses are so big, they can push a large bunch of people without even physically touching them.”

    “ It’s a green operation and horses don’t use any gas: We’re real user-friendly.”

    That may be something of an image problem for the horse-loving set – after all, if the gentle animals are being hailed as good for police PR, should they also be acclaimed for pushing citizens around? Nady Peters, a Boston-area riding instructor who helped lead the campaign to save the city’s mounted unit, has made her peace with the animals’ dual role, insisting that they make crowd control more humane.

    “When you have 10 or 12 horses side by side, going slowly toward a crowd, the crowd’s more likely to disperse. They have a calming effect that’s the opposite of what you’ll get from a row of police in riot gear, who rile the crowd, leading to confrontations and people being hurt. But when you have a ton of animal coming at you, you’re getting out of the way.”

    Still, for all the great memories of World Series riots that were quelled, Boston got rid of its mounted unit. So what’s a cash-strapped city to do if it want to keep its horses in hard times?

    Sergeant J.D. Harber of Nashville, whose animals handle crowd-control assignments as diverse as Tennessee Titans football games, Fourth of July fireworks celebrations, and presidential debates, has figured out pretty well every angle to maintain his 12 horses against a cost-cutting onslaught that favours police bicycles, scooters and even Segways.

    His unit grows its own hay and shares its quarters with a working farm. All the horses in Nashville are donated, another by-product of the recession that has seen private stables downsizing. Cheap labour is supplied from city jails to clean the stables and the horses. “It beats sitting in a jail cell,” he says.

    And when all else fails, he falls back on the environmental argument. “It’s a green operation and horses don’t use any gas: We’re real user-friendly.”

  416. SamHenry says:

    There is no form of crowd control more effective than policeman on a horse. A policeman on a bike, well, the only thing reasonable would be to save his own life by peddling away from an angry mob.

    Critics of Health Reform Concerned Over Government’s Role in End of Life Issues
    A quarter of all Medicare spending is made in a patients final year of life, and that’s when the biggest potential savings could be made

    PART OF AN ARTICLE FOXNEWS.COM

    Iowa Republican Senator Charles Grassley says end of life decisions should be strictly between patients, families and doctor — and that many fear some ideas in these bills can lead to the government influencing that decision making.

    “That’s unethical as far as I’m concerned,” said Grassley.

    But Obama affirms that nobody will be forced to make a set of decisions on end-of-life care based on “some bureaucratic law in Washington.”

    Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says decisions will be made by doctors and patients and that the provision in the House bill would allow Medicare to pay for counseling sessions on end of life issues, but it doesn’t require them. Gibbs believes the misunderstanding is a result of intentionally spread misinformation.

    “I think there are people that have knowingly spread inaccurate information to hold up progress on health reform,” said Gibbs.

    Still, end of life counseling is sometimes conducted by people with an interest in steering patients away from hospital care and toward less expensive hospice care. And while studies show people actually prefer hospice care, it’s important they receive the most informed decision on when to end curative care, and that should come from their doctor.

    The White House says the president encourages the creation of living wills, but aides won’t say if he specifically supports Medicare reimbursement for end of life counseling sessions.

    Officials do say the president doesn’t share concerns by Sen. Grassley and others, that such reimbursement might lead to the government making life or death decisions about health care.

    Sunbeds elevated to top cancer risk level: WHO

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer announced Wednesday that it had elevated sunbeds, used by tens of millions of people for tanning, to its highest cancer risk category.
    Classified in 1992 and a “probable” cancer agent, research since then has left no doubt that soaking up UV rays at tanning salons significantly enhances the chances of developing the disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO) agency found.

    “The use of sunbeds is carcinogenic to humans. It causes melanoma of the skin, and melanoma of the eye,” said Vincent Cogliano, an IARC researcher who led the new assessment.

    “I cannot see any reason why a healthy person should use them,” he told AFP by phone.

    The risk of melanoma — the most lethal form of skin cancer — increases by 75 percent when use of tanning devices starts before the age of 30, according to the findings, published in the British medical journal The Lancet Oncology.

    The link between artificial tanning devices and cancer is not new. The WHO and national health agencies have long cautioned against using sunbeds, much as they have warned about the ill effects of overexposure to the sun.

    But threshold of scientific proof is high, and required additional research on animals as well as epidemiological studies of cancer rates among humans before sunbeds could be labeled — along with tobacco, asbestos and alcohol — as a carcinogen.

    Cogliano said it is not the IARC’s role to issue recommendations, but that he hoped the new evaluation would focus attention on the issue.

    “We are not a regulatory agency. We publish the scientific results so that the public health agencies can take action as they see fit.”

    Physicians hailed the decision, and called for tighter regulations for the multi-billion dollar tanning industry.

    “We welcome the recognition that sunbeds are carcinogenic,” said Nina Goad, spokeswoman for the British Association of Dermatologists.

    “It is high time that steps were taken to regulate the industry, to prevent children using sunbeds, and to ensure that sunbeds are subject to health warnings like other known carcinogens.”

    “We have been trying for a long time to call the attention of the government to the potential risks,” said George Reuter, head of Frances National Union of Dermatologists.

    Both associations stopped short of calling for an outright ban.

    “The solution is to inform the public, not to outlaw sunbeds,” said Reuter, adding that many dermatologists in France tell their patients not to exceed ten sessions in year.

    Those who use the devices to stay tanned year round are especially at risk, he added.

    “People have the right to make their own health choices. Other known carcinogens are not banned, so I don’t think you want to set a precedent with sunbeds,” Goad said by phone.

    Sunbeds are more common in northern Europe and the United States than most other regions. According to a survey conducted last year, some 14 million Germans aged 18 to 45 use them, with a quarter starting before the age of 17.

    Earlier studies indicate that nearly a quarter of the adult population in many European countries — including France, Belgium, Germany and Sweden — have used sunbeds, which emit a higher concentration of UV rays than sunlight.

    The sunbed association, and industry lobby group based in Britain, disputed the IARC’s reclassification of tanning devices as carcinogen to humans.

    “The relationship between UV exposure and an increased risk of developing skin cancer is only likely to arise where over-exposure — i.e. burning — has taken place,” it said in a statement.

    Obama still cashing in on Bush’s failings

    Facing the first real rough patch of his presidency, President Obama and his supporters are once again resorting to a tried-and-true tactic: attacking George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

    In his White House press conference last week, Mr. Obama referred to the Bush era at least nine times, three times lamenting that he “inherited” a $1.3 trillion debt that has set back his administration’s efforts to fix the economy.

    With the former president lying low in Dallas, largely focused on crafting his memoirs, Mr. Obama has increasingly attempted to exploit Mr. Bush when discussing the weak economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the difficulty closing the military prison at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

    As he took power, Mr. Obama promised a “new era of responsibility” that would transcend partisan politics.

    “For a guy who campaigned on taking responsibility and looking forward, he spends an awful lot of time pointing fingers and looking backward,” said former Bush deputy press secretary Tony Fratto, who has begun defending the previous administration.

    But Democrats think Mr. Obama would be remiss if he did not point out what he inherited.

    “I’m not convinced that Obama and his supporters are bashing Bush as much as they are quite rightfully reminding people that our current economic mess and the wars were inherited from the Bush administration,” said Democratic strategist Bud Jackson. “It’s important to remind people of this because Republicans are now criticizing the Obama administration as if they had no role in how we got here.”

    Democratic Party strategist Liz Chadderdon said the strategy of blaming the previous team has been effective.

    “I think Bush-bashing has been alive and well since ’07 and, since it keeps working, why not use it?” she said. “Voters have short memories. The administration needs to remind people that things were way worse over the last four years than in the last six months.”

    Mixed feelings among voters about health care reform have shaken the president’s approval ratings from the high poll numbers when he took office. Six months into his term, 30 percent of the nation’s voters “strongly approve” of Mr. Obama’s job performance, according to a survey released Monday by the Rasmussen polling organization.

    The poll showed that 40 percent “strongly disapprove” of the president’s performance, marking the first time the disparity has reached double digits.

    Since taking office, Mr. Obama has implemented a $787 billion stimulus package that has failed to produce a quick economic turnaround and the U.S. economy has shed more than 2.5 million jobs.

    Mr. Obama hardly ever refers to Mr. Bush by name. In fact, his Web site, whitehouse.gov, recently scrubbed the name of the former president out of a reference to Hurricane Katrina, which once read: “President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.”

    Now, the “President Bush” is gone.

    Although Mr. Obama’s effort is subtle, his rhetoric is clear. On his first trip overseas, Mr. Obama referred to Mr. Bush’s foreign policy and said the United States has “shown arrogance” and been “dismissive, even derisive.” He said decisions of the past had “lowered our standing in the world.”

    “There are some mornings I read the news and feel like it’s January 2009 — there are so many stories making the front page about things that President Bush thought about and didn’t do,” said former White House press secretary Dana Perino. “I find it hard to believe that there aren’t more interesting stories affecting Americans in the here and now that can garner that kind of space. But the obsession continues unabated.”

    Even when asserting his responsibility for addressing the nation’s problems, Mr. Obama manages to highlight that he was left to deal with others’ missteps.

    At a town-hall meeting this month in Michigan — the state with the nation’s highest jobless rate — Mr. Obama said that fixing the economy is “a job I gladly accept.”

    But he added, “I love these folks who helped get us in this mess. And then suddenly say, ‘Oh, this is Obama’s economy.'”

    They have to make someone a ‘villian’ in virtually every situation in order to ‘talk the people’ into their big-government schemes (that, by the way, they do their best to rename/distort the actuality)…

    I have come to this conclusion yesterday when Obama ripped on Doctors.

    First Republicans/Bush, then Wall Street, then Rich people, now Doctors….

    Health service choices are a right conferred to us by our Constitution that says we are free and we alone can decide. When gov’t gets involved they are becoming a god-like substitute deciding for us, doling out their life & death sentences.

    Besides, now all studies say this gov’t takeover is way more expensive than leaving people free to choose.

    So there’s really no savings behind it. Right now people don’t have to go to hospices if they don’t want to. Under the gov’t people have to do what they are told, b/c of the shear cost of “universal care” they have to cut corners.

    People should be free.

    New York City Buys Homeless People One-Way Plane Tickets to Keep Shelter Costs Down

    NEW YORK — New York City is buying one-way plane tickets for homeless families to leave the city.

    It’s part of a program by Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration to keep the homeless out of the expensive shelter system, which costs $36,000 a year per family.

    More than 550 families have left the city since 2007. All it takes is for a relative to agree to take them in.

    The city employs a travel agency for domestic travel and the Department of Homeless Services handles international travel.

    City officials say there are no limits on where a family can be sent and families can reject the offer.

    Families have been sent to 24 states and five continents, mostly to Puerto Rico, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.

    City officials say none of the relocated families have returned to city shelters.

    Whale saves drowning diver

    A beluga whale saved a drowning diver by hoisting her to the surface, carrying her leg in its mouth.

    Terrified Yang Yun thought she was going to die when her legs were paralysed by crippling cramps in arctic temperatures.

    She had been taking part in a free diving contest WITHOUT any breathing equipment.

    Competitors had to sink to the bottom of an aquarium’s 20ft arctic pool and stay there for as long as possible amid the beluga whales at Polar Land in Harbin, north east China.

    But when Yun, 26, tried to head to the surface she struggled to move her legs.

    Advertisement

    Lucky Yun said: “I began to choke and sank even lower and I thought that was it for me – I was dead. Until I felt this incredible force under me driving me to the surface.”

    Beluga whale Mila had spotted her difficulties and using her sensitive dolphin-like nose guided Yun safely to the surface.

    An organiser said: “Mila noticed the problem before we did.

    “We suddenly saw the girl being pushed to the top of the pool with her leg in Mila’s mouth.

    “She’s a sensitive animal who works closely with humans and I think this girl owes her, her life.”
