OBAMA'S HIGH PROJECTED EXPECTATIONS FALLING?



It appears that Obama is getting ready to prepare his supporters with a dose of reality! According to Tim Reid, The Times of London, "Barack Obama's senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week's election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harboring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve.

The sudden financial crisis and the prospect of a deep and painful recession have increased the urgency inside the Obama team to bring people down to earth, after a campaign in which his soaring rhetoric and promises of "hope" and "change" are now confronted with the reality of a stricken economy."

Are we conservatives surprised? No. The hand writing was on the wall. Barack Obama has and still is very good at "stretching or distorting" what isn't. Promise them anything as long as they are willing to hear it and buy into it! Notice what the quote above says, "...drawing up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins..." Another "let's not give them too much bad truth now but wait until I've got the position locked in." Folks, this is the true colors of Barack Obama.

We all have expectations. The dictionary states that the word expectation means: a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. However, along with expectations we must weigh it against reality. Obama's expectations have over shot reality with too much hype. The reality is that there is not enough money to do all the things Obama has told the American people he will do. And, he told them this knowingly. Simple as that. Now, once again, he wants to change his "speech and his direction" so people will more likely accept the truth when it hits them after the election. He is for change alright. He is for changing his story to fit his need.

Wake up America.

Editor's warning: Some readers may take offense to graphic content in this column.

About eight years ago, while researching the astonishing rise of homosexual-positive programs and curricula in schools, I came across a book called "Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling" by William J. Letts IV and James T. Sears.

It's a collection of essays by radicals in the teaching profession, who believe adults and small children must be taught to "think queerly." The book's foreword was written by Kevin Jennings, then president of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, whose core mission is to convince as many troubled kids as possible to declare themselves homosexual and start "gay" clubs in their schools, assisted by activist on-site teachers and the ACLU, and unopposed by clueless school boards.

What jumped off the back cover of this book was the name of one of its endorsers: William Ayers of the University of Illinois at Chicago. I remembered Bill Ayers' name from the 60s bomb-throwing group, the Weathermen. At the time, that was all his name meant to me.

Bill Ayers's Scary Plans for Public Schools

FOLKS.......MORE SCARY INDOCTRINATION TACTICS.....Please read this article before you vote!

By:Phyllis Schlafly @ EagleForum.Org

Will William Ayers be Secretary of Education in a Barack Obama Administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before making their choice for President on November 4.

After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and Professor Ayers's expertise is training teachers and developing public school curriculum. That's been his mission since he gave up planting bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers.

Ayers brashly admitted that he was "guilty as hell" in planting bombs in the 1970s, and that he has no regrets and feels that he and his Weather Underground associates "didn't do enough." After successfully avoiding trial and prison because of legal technicalities, he picked up his Ph.D. at Columbia Teachers College for a second career, landing a tenured job as Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Ayers's political views are as radical now as they were in the 1970s. "Viva President Chavez!" he exclaimed in a speech in Venezuela in 2006, in which he also declared, "education is the motor-force of revolution."

From his prestigious and safe university position, Ayers has been teaching teachers and students in rebellion against American capitalism and what he calls "imperialism" and "oppression." The code words for the Ayers curriculum are "social justice," a "transformative" vision, "critical pedagogy," "liberation," "capitalist injustices," "critical race theory," "queer theory," and of course multiculturalism and feminism.

Why The Left Can't Get It Right


Once in a while you come across an article that you must share and this one from Mark Alexander is such an article. Mark is executive editor and publisher of The Patriot Post, the Web's "Conservative Journal of Record". He talks about why people select certain candidates or issues, pointing out an interesting analogy as to whether you are making a choice as a liberal or conservation. It seems some "feel" their way to ideas or principles and some "think" their way. How do you make your selection? And, if you should be a liberal, well, sorry. Enjoy the read.


Mark Alexander
From Patriot Post Vol. 08 No. 29; Published 18 July 2008

"If men of wisdom and knowledge, of moderation and temperance, of patience, fortitude and perseverance, of sobriety and true republican simplicity of manners, of zeal for the honour of the Supreme Being and the welfare of the commonwealth; if men possessed of these other excellent qualities are chosen to fill the seats of government, we may expect that our affairs will rest on a solid and permanent foundation." --Samuel Adams

Ask liberals about some manifestation of their worldview -- for example, why they support charlatans like Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Albert Arnold Gore, John Forbes Kerry, et al., and they often predicate their response with, "Because I feel..."

Ask conservatives about what they believe, or why they do or don't support John McCain, and they invariably predicates their response with, "Because I think..."

It has always been easier to "feel" rather than "think," and that is why our national culture, and by extension, national politics (see Democrat Party Platforms) reflect only the most rudimentary remnants of the guiding principles established by our Founders. Of course, though Republican Party Platforms are more consistent with our Founding principles, Ronald Reagan was the last Republican president to stand firmly in support of those principles.

WILL ACORN TAKE THE ELECTION?


WAKE UP AMERICA. Voters out there on Main Street, we need to call our individual Secretary of State officials to ensure the appropriate steps are being taken to stop voter registration by ACORN until a complete investigation is held. Too much is at risk. We also need to contact our elected officials and tell them to take the necessary steps to stop any and all funding that is going to ACORN and its affiliates. Not only is taxpayer money going down the drain, our election may being following. This is an outrage and we must act now!

VOTER FRAUD


This year seems to be the year for political tragedies. Americans had to accept the "bailout" from Congress, however, not by its own standards but with "earmarks"! And, if that's not enough to frost your banana, add the excitement of voter fraud. Over the years I have seen some articles and few news reports about voter fraud, but nothing like this year...WOW! There are folks out on the Internet that say there is very little to it. They are not watching or reading the same news I am.

Things are a little squirrely for me. The ACORN group is at it again. They are stiring up "voter fraud" news in about ten states across the nation. And if that is not enough, there is the linking of Obama with ACORN and linking ACORN with Fannie and Freddie. It seems that there is enough talk for investigation, I believe, since ACORN receives money from us generous taxpayers.

JULY 4 - Time For Tea


The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
