Hussein’s Not Fooling The Cuban-American Voters

ANWR – the real story?

FIRST… do you know what ANWR is?
ANWR = Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Now… A comparison

Image

And some perspective…

Image

NOTE WHERE THE PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT AREA IS…

(it’s in the “ANWR Coastal Plain”)

Image

THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRATS, LIBERALS AND “GREENS” SHOW YOU WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT ANWR

Image

…and they are right… these ARE photographs of ANWR

Image Image

ISN’T ANWR BEAUTIFUL? WHY SHOULD WE DRILL HERE (AND DESTROY) THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE?

WELL… THAT’S NOT EXACTLY THE TRUTH

Do you remember the map?
The map showed that the proposed drilling area is in the ANWR Coastal Plain
Do those photographs look like a coastal plain to you?

WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE…

THAT IS NOT WHERE THEY ARE WANTING TO DRILL!

THIS IS WHAT THE PROPOSED EXPLORATION AREA ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE WINTER

Image

AND THIS IS WHAT IT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IN THE SUMMER

Image Image Image

HERE ARE A COUPLE SCREEN SHOTS FROM GOOGLE EARTH

Image

Image

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT DRILLING IS A BARREN WASTELAND.

OH… AND THEY SAY THAT THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE EFFECT ON THE LOCAL WILDLIFE…

HERE IS A PHOTO (SHOT DURING THE SUMMER) OF THE
“DEPLETED WILDLIFE” SITUATION CREATED BY
DRILLING AROUND PRUDHOE BAY *…
DON’T YOU THINK THAT THE CARIBOU REALLY HATE THAT DRILLING?

Image

HERE’S THAT SAME SPOT DURING THE WINTER.
Image

HEY, THIS BEAR SEEMS TO REALLY HATE THE PIPELINE NEAR PRUDHOE BAY *…
*The Prudhoe bay area accounts for 17% of U.S. domestic oil production

Image

NOW, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE LYING ABOUT ANWR?

REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID THAT
THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD WORK TO ARTIFICIALLY RAISE GAS PRICES
TO $5.00 A GALLON?
WELL…

AL GORE AND HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS HAVE ALMOST REACHED THEIR GOAL!

NOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN LYING,
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

YOU CAN START BY FORWARDING THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW…
SO THAT THEY WILL KNOW THE TRUTH

Messiah of America’s loony leftist dingbats — Meet Obama’s Useful Idiots

Messiah of America’s loony leftist dingbats

Meet Obama’s Useful Idiots

 By JB Williams  Monday, June 30, 2008
At the risk of being accused of “racism” for not falling in line behind the first half-black but wholly unqualified man ever to run for president, allow me to introduce the useful idiots at the core of Obamamania.

Barack Hussein Obama, the Jim (Farrakhan) Jones of the 2008 race for the White House, and chosen Messiah of America’s loony leftist dingbats, is leading the race for the most powerful office on earth. The “How?” is the interesting part of the story…

As if we have not already seen enough evidence of ill-informed political lunacy surrounding the anointment process of the chosen one, Obama useful idiots have found a new way to demonstrate their gross youthful ignorance.

In a June 29, New York Times article titled Obama Supporters Take His Middle Name as Their Own, Jodi Kantor interviews several Columbus Ohio Obama sycophants who have decided to adopt Obama’s middle name, Hussein, as their own, as a demonstration of solidarity with their Messiah of change.

Kantor writes, “Emily Nordling has never met a Muslim, at least not to her knowledge. But this spring, Ms. Nordling, a 19-year-old student from Fort Thomas, Ky., gave herself a new middle name on “More articles about Facebook.” Facebook.com, mimicking her boyfriend and shocking her father. “Emily Hussein Nordling,” her entry now reads.”

Like most loony leftists, the fact that Nordling has admittedly never even met a Muslim does not in any way impede her sense of personal expertise on the subject of Islam, Muslim jihad, Obama or even what her new chosen middle name, Hussein, implies…

According to the “ New Husseins”, “I am sick of Republicans pronouncing Barack Obama’s name like it was some sort of cuss word,” Mr. Strabone wrote in a manifesto titled “We Are All Hussein” that he posted on his own blog and on dailykos.com.

Mr. Obama is a Christian, not a Muslim. Hussein is a family name inherited from a Kenyan father he barely knew, who was born a Muslim and died an atheist. But the name has become a political liability. Some critics on cable television talk shows dwell on it, while others, on blogs or in e-mail messages, use it to falsely assert that Mr. Obama is a Muslim or, more fantastically, a terrorist.

This is a perfect example of why America might want to consider raising the legal voting age to those who have had to balance a household budget, make their first car payment, or wipe their own nose…before allowing them a voice in the running of a nation they clearly haven’t the faintest idea about.

A trip to left-wing blogs Democratic Underground or the Dailykos will provide a spine-chilling glimpse at just how ill-informed and anti-American the “New Hussein” crowd is today. It will also evidence what kinds of mindless garbage are being spoon-fed to our nation’s youth on college campuses across this nation.

A Chicago Tribune column on the same topic notes, “Mark Elrod, a political science professor at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., is organizing students and friends to declare their Husseinhood on Facebook on Aug. 4, Obama’s birthday.”

Nordling states, “When her father saw her new online moniker, he was incredulous.”He actually thought I was going to convert to Islam.” Yes, as the name “Hussein” is of Muslim descent, why would one think anything else?

The lunacy is in the fact that Nordling and her fellow useful idiots are unable to make the same connections concerning the name Hussein or their hero, Obamessiah.

One should not be shocked however…

Obama Kool-Aid drinkers have demonstrated a continuous pattern of overlooking the obvious, failing to make even the most basic connections or ask even the most obvious questions before climbing aboard the Obamessiah train headed for slaughter.

 

  • They look at Obama and see only a “black” candidate, ignoring entirely the white half of his family tree, which is the side of his family which made it possible for him to be a US Senator running for President today.
  • They look at his twenty year membership in the most anti-American racist church in America and believe that he never noticed that it was an anti-white, anti-American church.
  • They look at his completely blank résumé  and conclude that he is uniquely qualified to be commander-in-chief at a time in history when very few are truly qualified for such a daunting task.
  • They listen to Obama talk about “hope” and “change” without ever asking what kind of change, or what accomplishments in Obama’s history would give them any reason for hope.
  • They hear “universal health care” without hearing “socialized medicine” or connecting the dots that they are asking the same people who bankrupted Social Security and Medicare to bankrupt the entire health care system.
    Bottom line, America’s most illiterate voters are supporting Obama and they are now adopting the MUSLIM name Hussein to prove just how ignorant they really are… 

    The New York Times column points out, “Ms. Miller and her fellow new Husseins are embracing the traditionally Muslim name even as the Obama campaign shies away from Muslim associations. Campaign workers ushered two women in head scarves out of a camera’s range at a rally this month in Detroit.”

    When even a left-wing rag like the Times is dumbfounded by the actions of their regular leftist readers, you know something has gone horribly awry…

    Obama supporters give all new meaning to the term useful idiots. But they have a vote just the same, and that should worry EVERY American.

    But all is not yet lost. An increasing number of old JFK Democrats are coming around. You can find them on activist blogs like NObama and Democrats for McCain.

    The open question is; are there enough useful idiots in America to secure the Oval Office for the least qualified candidate ever to seek that office in U.S. history? We will soon know the answer to this question. In the meantime, the rest of America had better return to daily prayer!

    North Pole ice melting fear mongers strike out

    North Pole ice melting fear mongers strike out

    Thomas Lifson
    Kudos to John L. Daly, who has written a very interesting study of ice at the North Pole. Global Warmists are once again observing cyclical changes and declaring them “proof” of the dire effects of global warming.

    Among the interesting pictures posted to this site is this one from 1987, when we were supposed to be worried about global cooling:

    (U.S. Navy Photo)

    This was not exactly a harbinger of global warming, as this picture of unbroken ice at the North Pole three years later attests:


    USS Hawkbill at the North Pole, Spring 1999. (US Navy Photo)

    Daly explores the various factors influencing ice at the North Pole. It is accessible to laymen like me. His conclusions:

     

    …both the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice is certainly subject to variation. But it would be a mistake to assume that a brief period during which the Arctic is in a thinning cycle is anything more than that – a cycle. We know from past history that it has been subject to earlier retreats as suggested by the opening quote from 1817.
    Part of the problem lay in the fact that useful data on ice extent and thickness only dates from the 1950s, yet our temperature record from Jan Mayen Island at the edge of the Arctic shows that the Arctic was warmer during the 1930s than it was during the 1990s. Unfortunately there is no comprehensive ice data from the 1930s. Instead such data begins in the late 1950s, at a time when the Arctic was entering into the grip of a known cold spell. As that cold period ended, it is hardly surprising to find thinner ice during the latter warmer period. [….]
    The limits on the thickness of Arctic ice are determined by how low the air temperature can get, and on how warm and fast-moving the subsurface water is. Air temperatures measured in the Arctic region show no recent warming, thus discounting the possibility that recent thinning of ice could be caused by atmospheric warming above the ice. Rather, the  thinning of ice in the 1990s is clearly associated with a warming of the sub-surface ocean, as shown by the SCICEX data, caused in whole or in part by the strong NAO [North Atlantic Oscillation — ocean current change] increasing the flow rate of Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean.

    There is nothing in the data to suggest anything but natural cycles at work.

    The Obamas and their Mortgage (updated)

    The Obamas and their Mortgage (updated)

    By Richard Henry Lee

    Sweetheart mortgage loans to Senators are much in the news of late, with calls for increased scrutiny of the solons’ dealings with their mortgage lenders. In this spirit, I took a look at some of the publicly available information on Senator and Mrs. Obama’s mortgage, obtained in 2005 when they purchased their mansion in Chicago’s upscale Hyde Park district.

    The Obamas purchased their home with the help of his friend Tony Rezko, recently convicted of a felony. His wife Rita purchased the adjoining lot, the former side yard of the mansion, to seal the deal. According to the mortgage documents which his campaign released, the Obamas obtained a $1.32 million mortgage from Northern Trust. The Politico recently asked Senators about their home mortgages in the wake of the revelations that Senators Chris Dodd (D-Conn) and Kent Conrad (D-ND) received special treatment from their lenders. In Obama’s case, he stated that he did not receive any such favors.

     

    The Obamas’ loan documents (warning: large file) show that they received a 30 year fixed rate loan at an interest rate of 5.625% with no points. This interest rate seems to be in line with the going rates for a Jumbo mortgage which are typically about 0.25 to 0.5% higher than a smaller, conventional mortgage. Freddie Mac lists an average rate of 5.58% for June 2005 and 0.6 points. Obama paid no points and given the jumbo differential, his rate is better than the average. The first payment is given as $7,598.67 presumably due August 1, 2005 which is consistent with the loan terms.

     

    The second mortgage, dated November 25, 2005, is also a loan from Northern Trust, for an amount not to exceed $250,000. This appears to be a credit line for whatever purpose. It could have been used to purchase a 10 foot portion of the adjoining lot from Rita Rezko for $104,500 on January 11, 2006. There is no interest rate given for this credit line and it may be a variable rate.

     

    Where’s the Interest?

     

    There is a one million dollar limit on deductability for home mortgage payments, as commenter Phil Nesbit points out below. It would appear that the Obamas are rich enough to be caught up in the “soak the rich” provision of the tax code. It has cost them money, unless they have managed to pay down their mortgage.

    The Obama’s declared mortgage interest deductions on their tax returns of $32,418 for 2005, $60,449 for 2006, and $57,838 for 2007.  But their Northern Trust loan at the terms stated would have generated interest payments of about $30,871 for 2005, $73,395 for 2006 and $72,368 for 2007. For 2005, there would have been additional interest payments for their Hyde Park Condo which they sold on April 29, 2005 so even the 2005 deducted amount is low. They have apparently not been able to deduct the excess.

     

    It is of course possible that the Obamas were able to pay down their mortgage loan. His books were selling and  Michelle had nearly tripled her income from the University of Chicago Hospital when her husband was elected a United States Senator. So the Obamas may have chosen to apply some of the windfall toward paying down the mortgage. It would have required about $240,000 in paydown for the reported mortgage interest to equal 5.625%.on the reduced principle.

     

    Beyond the question of the mortgage payments, odd coincidences and connections surround the house purchase, beyond questions already raised by the handling of the mansion’s side yard, which was legally divided by the previous owner into a separate lot, and sold to Tony Rezko’s wife Rita Rezko at the same time the Obamas purchased the house adjoining the yard.

     

    If nothing else, these connections illustrate how deeply the Obamas’ personal and financial lives are enmeshed in the world of Tony Rezko and the Chicago political machine.

     

    Multiple coincidences
    Obama’s lawyer in the transaction, William Miceli, in all likelihood did legal work for Tony Rezko also.

     

    Obama used a trust account through Northern Trust to purchase the home. His attorney, William Miceli, signed the real estate documents on behalf of the trust. The same William Miceli was a sometime supervisor of Obama when Obama worked at the law firm of Davis Miner Barnhill & Galland. This firm also did some work for Tony Rezko’s firm Rezmar, which has developed some projects that turned out to be disasters.

     

    Miceli specializes in urban renewal land deals. Rezmar, of course, participated in numerous deals of this kind, including a deal with Allison Davis of the firm. Rezko also arranged to get Davis appointed by Gov. Blagojevich to the Illinois State Board of Investment. Davis has since left the law firm.

     

    The house purchased by the Obamas had been gutted and renovated 6 years earlier by a former employee of Tony Rezko. At the time the Obamas became interested in the house, someone else had already obtained an option on the side yard lot. By sheer coincidence, Tony Rezko knew that person, and arranged for the option to remain unexercised when the Obamas purchased the home, leaving the side yard in the friendly hands of the crooked Chicago real estate wheeler-dealer’s wife.

     

    Northern Trust and Kelly King Dibble

     

    The Obamas got their mortgage from Northern Trust. By curious coincidence, one of Michelle’s old friends joined that bank and is now in a particularly important position when it comes to information about the mortgage.

     

    Kelly King Dibble has a long time friendship with Michelle Obama from the time they both worked at the Chicago Planning Dept, and  she also worked for Rezko. Dibble went on to head the Illinois Housing Development Authority under Governor Blagojevich, with Rezko help. Dibble also hosted a fund raiser for Obama. More on Dibble here.

     

    Dibble also was mentioned during the Rezko trial by Ali Ata. Dibble was a regular visitor to Rezko’s office while heading the IHDA (which is based in Chicago). She also crossed Rezko when she refused to hire a Rezko relative.

     

    Dibble later resigned from the IHDA in Jan 2007 to take a job with Northern Trust, and is now Senior Vice President Public Affairs. So if Northern Trust is asked about the loan, Dibble will be in charge of framing the answers.

     

    I have often wondered what role Dibble might have played in Obama’s house deal, since she was chummy with Michelle and Michelle was probably doing most of the house search. Did Dibble tell Rezko about the Obamas’ housing search? Was she also involved with the Northern Trust deal? (Although she still headed the IHDA at the time, she might have had contacts at Northern Trust to get such a plum job there later).

     

    The media have focused on the Obama-Rezko connection, but I wonder how much Michelle was involved? She seems to have run the household, is a Harvard-trained lawyer, and she is no shrinking violet. Her father was a Democrat precinct captain so she is no stranger to the ways of Chicago politics.

     

    There may only be smoke, no fire, in the Obamas’ mortgage transaction. But they certainly had a lot of help from a lot of friends of Tony Rezko.
