The first responsibility of a Judge is to apply the law and as a result enforce the law. But for liberal activist Judges this primary responsibility of any Judge is secondary to fulfilling a political agenda and this is exactly what happened when U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton, a Clinton appointee, did in placing a temporary injunction against the Arizona immigration law which goes into affect today.

The Arizona law does nothing more than enforce already existing federal laws, allowing local and state law enforcement jurisdiction in enforcing current laws which the federal government has ignored leading to the tremendous problem of illegal aliens and drug cartels invading Arizona and killing residents of the state.

Bolton by issuing the injunction has not just sided with the Obama administration who has refused to enforce federal law concerning immigration, but she has also denied the state the legal ability to enforce existing laws. Bolton has neglected her primary responsibility as a Judge in order to side with a liberal political agenda which allows illegal aliens to invade our country and threaten our citizens.

The case will now go into the appeals process but is likely to fail since it will head to the extremely liberal and controversial 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in equally as liberal San Francisco who will almost certainly uphold Bolden's activist decision. The final decision on the case will end at the Supreme Court but in the meantime Bolden's political decision will continue to tie the hands of law enforcement in Arizona and allow the havoc caused by illegals to continue threatening the citizens of the state.

Arizona's loss is also America's loss. Many other states were preparing or considering preparing legislation similar to Arizona's. Now that the Obama administration has in essence at least temporarily defeated the Arizona law, other states may be hesitant to pass such legislation since they see that it is so easily stopped by Obama's Justice Department through liberal activist judges.

Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona in expressing her disappointment in the ruling once again scolded and challenged the Obama administration to, "do their job, " and protect our borders. But it has become frustratingly obvious that Obama is more interested in taking states who are trying to protect their citizens to court and side with illegal aliens who are invading our country with the goal of providing amnesty and paying for their vote enslaving them to the Democrat machine and government while allowing legal citizens to suffer at the hands of those same illegals.

Barack Obama has been on a kick lately of trying to claim that he is no different then the ,"average," American and as such can understand and identify with the hardships that the country and her people are facing due to the recession and the financial troubles which are troubling many Americans.

In fact he actually stated that it was not long ago that he and Michelle had large credit card balances and struggled financially. Yet the evidence shows just the opposite since Michelle made a large six figure income for many years before The White House and Obama had a considerable amount of financial holdings which were given to him from ,"friends," who helped bring about his political career. So his claim that they identify with average Americans is nothing more than the usual Obama pack of lies and rhetoric.

The posh life has been part of the Obama household for years and their habits became even more extravagant after moving to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Following is a list of the Obama excesses since he became the President elite:

Calvin Klein, Harvey Weinstein And Several “Former Clinton Boosters” Are Expected To Shell Out Over $30,000 To Attend a White House event Events. “The price for the evening is just over $30,000 a head, making it a somewhat tougher draw. But the names - at least the ones I was able to pry loose - are a patchwork of a bunch of different industries. … At the Four Seasons, the first event of the night and a fifty-ticket event, a source familiar with the affair said attendees are expected to incude longtime Bill Clinton donor Bernard Schwartz, Obama booster Jane Hartley, Anne Hess, former Clinton boosters Stan Shuman and Michael Kempner. The next event, at Vogue editrix Anna Wintour's home, has been difficult to get details about, but a few names I was able to glean include Larry Gagosian, the art dealer who was a Clinton backer, along with Miramax founder Harvey Weinstein, and designer Calvin Klein, an Obama booster, and Marissa Mayer of Google fame.” (Maggie Haberman, “Mix Of Clinton, Obama Donors Slated For Prez Events,” Politico, 7/27/10)

In May, Obama Jetted To $15,000 Fundraiser At St. Regis In New York City. “President Obama headed to a $15,000-per-person fundraiser in Manhattan after spending the afternoon speaking to workers upstate about their economic struggles… Obama is the big draw at a dinner to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. He’s set to take the stage at 7:05 p.m. at the St. Regis Hotel, where tickets sold for $15,000 a person or $30,400 a couple, according to a Democratic official.” (Carol Lee, “Obama Tops $15K-Per-Person Event, Politico’s 44 Blog, 5/13/10)

In 2009, Obama “Basked In The Glow” Of His Hollywood Supporters, Holding Back-To-Back Fundraisers Among Hollywood Elite. “President Obama arrived at a back-to-back fund-raising dinner and concert on Wednesday night and raised $4 million for the Democratic National Committee. He basked in the glow of his Hollywood supporters and thanked them for making his candidacy possible… There was Jamie Foxx and Marissa Tomei, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffth, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, and a long line of bold and not-so-bold names.” (Jeff Zeleny, “Obama Rings Up Cash Among The Stars,” The New York Times’ The Caucus Blog, 5/27/09)

Paying $30,400 Per Couple. “The people in the audience – who paid $30,400 per couple to attend – laughed as they ate a dinner of roasted tenderloin, grilled organic chicken and sun choke rosemary mashed potatoes.” (Jeff Zeleny, “Obama Rings Up Cash Among The Stars,” The New York Times’ The Caucus Blog, 5/27/09)

Obama Will Even Celebrate His Birthday With $30,000 A Plate Fundraiser Thrown By Billionaire Neil Bluhm. “$$$$$: Happy Birthday, buddy! Sneed hears real estate mogul Neil Bluhm is tossing a private birthday party here for President Obama, who turns 49 on Aug. 4. The shocker: The dinner invite to the Barack bash at Bluhm's home requires a $30,000 donation to the Democratic National Committee! The stunner: Obama is also scheduled to be in town Aug. 5 for a fund-raiser at the Palmer House for U.S. Senate hopeful Alexi Giannoulias, who is hoping to capture Uncle Rocky's old seat.” (Michael Sneed, “Price To Attend Obama's Birthday Bash: $30,000,” The Chicago Sun-Times, 7/23/10

Hosting “Scores Of Celebrities” Such As George Clooney And Jay-Z. “During Obama's first 16 months in office, the White House has hosted scores of celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Eva Longoria Parker, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Serena Williams, Bobby Flay and the Foo Fighters. Some have come for official events, such as Bob Dylan and Smokey Robinson, who performed at a civil rights concert at the White House in February. In March photos surfaced of Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and his wife Beyonce Knowles posing coolly with the president in the White House.” (Deborah Weinstein. “Obama’s Celebrity Guests,” Forbes, 5/4/10)

Obama Following Pattern Of Holding Weekly Social Events, Including Cocktail Parties And Concerts. “The administration has followed a pattern recently, opening up the White House on Wednesday nights for social events – a Stevie Wonder concert last Wednesday, and cocktail parties with various groups in weeks past.” (Sunlen Miller, “Obama Hosts Bipartisan 'Timeout' Dinner at White House,” ABC News, 3/5/09)

Obama Has “A Penchant For Ritziness.” “That Obama also relaxes in Hawaii — though his childhood home, it’s viewed by many Americans as a kind of paradise that they can never get to — and on tony Martha’s Vineyard evinces a penchant for ritziness that can’t help him with the general public.” (Keith Koffler, “Obama Distances Himself From Voters,” Op-Ed, Politico, 7/26/10)

Obama Is One Of “Broadway’s Most Prominent Advocates,” And Is Now Bringing Broadway To Him. “A couple of Broadway’s most prominent advocates – President Obama and his wife, Michelle – will continue to do their part for the New York theater by bringing some of it to the White House on Monday. Representatives for Mrs. Obama said on Wednesday that the White House would continue its concert series with a performance at 7 p.m. on Monday by a lineup of prominent Broadway talents, including Nathan Lane, Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Brian d’Arcy James, Chad Kimball, Tonya Pinkins, Marvin Hamlisch, Karen Olivo and Assata Alston, preceded by remarks from the president.” (Dave Itzkoff, “White House To Host A Broadway Concert Next Week,” The New York Times, 7/14/10)

The “All-Star Lineup” For Paul McCartney’s Gershwin Prize Performance Included Stevie Wonder, The Jonas Brothers, And Faith Hill. “The setting was the ornate East Room, chandeliers overhead, George and Martha Washington portraits on the walls and an all-star lineup of performers cranking out some of McCartney's greatest hits. Stevie Wonder had the Obamas clapping to ‘We Can Work It Out.’ The Jonas Brothers did ‘Baby You Can Drive My Car.’ Corinne Bailey Rae slowed things down with ‘Blackbird.’ And Faith Hill stroked ‘Long and Winding Road.’ It was McCartney himself who brought down the house by belting out ‘Michelle,’ aiming his words straight at a first lady named Michelle.” (“All-Star White House Tribute To Paul McCartney,” The Associated Press, 6/3/10)

Obama Just Returned From Vacation In Bar Harbor, Maine. “Bar Harbor, Maine — Serving as a summer retreat for Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and Morgans, this town and the surrounding area have long been known as a place where well-heeled and well-known visitors could beat the heat — and have their privacy respected. President Barack Obama is the latest influential visitor to flee to Maine in search of a cool ocean breeze. When he arrives Friday for a three-day visit, he'll be the first sitting president to visit Mount Desert Island since William Howard Taft a century ago.” (Clarke Canfield, “Obama's Maine Island Long Visited By Rich, Famous,” The Associated Press, 7/15/10)

Last December, The First Family Stayed In An $8.9 Million Dollar Estate On Their Hawaiian Getaway. “The first family touched down amid intense security in President Obama's hometown Thursday and settled in for what is expected to be a 10-day vacation in Kailua, with apparent plans to decorate an 8-foot Noble fir Christmas tree last night. Coast Guard personnel in semi-rigid boats patrolled the nearby Kawainui Canal, and a pair of gunboats sat behind Kailuana Loop, where the Obamas will be staying in a five-bedroom, beachfront home that's up for sale for $8.9 million.” (Dan Nakaso, “Obamas Plan To 'Recharge' On Hawaii Trip,” The Associated Press, 12/25/09)

Over 40 Rounds Of Golf. “President Barack Obama has played a remarkable 41 rounds of golf since becoming president, easily outpacing his predecessor and possibly damaging his ability to portray himself in 2012 as a populist advocate of average folks… The former community organizer’s 41 trips around the links – a standard of recreational activity well beyond the budgets of most Americans – compares to only 24 total outings for former President George W. Bush, according to statistics compiled by White House chronicler Mark Knoller of CBS News. Bush, whose golf outings were used to help deride him as a callow, lazy, rich boy, played his 24th and last round on Oct. 13, 2003, saying he was ending the practice out of respect for the families of Americans killed in Iraq.” (Keith Koffler, “Obama Has Shot 41 Rounds of Golf as President,” WhiteHouseDossier, 7/16/10)

When Stuck In DC, Obama Dines At “Super Exclusive” And Super Expensive Restaurants. “Most recently, the couple went to super exclusive Komi, one of the toughest places to get a reservation in D.C. No word on what the couple ate, but the restaurant is known for its $125 multicourse menu. What we do know: The first lady held a bouquet of flowers as she left the restaurant.” (Amie Parnes, “Obama Family Haunts,” Politico-Click, 7/6/10)

And When The Obamas Can’t Go To The Celebrity Chefs, The Celebrity Chefs Come To Them. “This is the Obamas' second state dinner, and Bayless is the second guest chef that Mrs. Obama has requested. In November, award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson prepared a meal for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.” (“Chicago Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless Will Prepare Meal For Obama’s State Dinner For Mexican President,” The Associated Press, 5/19/10)

This is not the life style of someone who even remotely understands or identifies with the average American. This is the life style of an elitist who lives to the excess and mostly at tax payer expense. He uses the Presidency as a path to celebrity and spends tax payer money in The White House to pay for his addiction. His fiscal policy shows that he does not understand Americans and his life style proves that he could care less about the financial problems that average Americans struggle with every day.

This video is an absolutely brilliant piece by Glenn Beck. I watched it on his show and sat mesmerized as he passionately expressed the progressive destruction and the impact that we the people are having on preventing Obama and clan from creating the total destruction of our Republic. But as Beck states we are not done and the battle is still on. Fight we will and win we must for our Nation, our children and our freedom!

A Muslim Mosque next to Ground Zero? When I first heard of this several weeks ago I thought the outrage of even considering this would be so great that nothing would come of it. Yet not only has the city of New York given zoning passage for this ultimate insult to the memory of those who perished on 9/11 but the city government from the Mayor on down are defending the building of what will become a shrine to an Islamic triumph and worshipped by millions around the world as a monument to the death of Americans and a Muslim victory over America.

Except for the conservative media this story is either being ignored or buried so deep that I have realized that most Americans are not even aware that a Mosque is in the process of becoming a reality next to the sacred ground of Ground Zero. Is this because America has forgotten our National anger and sorrow when the planes destroyed The World Trade Center or is it because the PC crowd is so entrenched in our Nation that Muslim is the new PC and nothing can even be considered that in the slightest way might offend them.

I think it is a combination of both. Americans have a short memory and unfortunately even an event as devastating and terrible as 9/11 becomes further removed the country as a whole has the ability to forget National tragedy and go on with life. To a certain emotional extent this is good except that tragic events such as 9/11 become a foot note in peoples minds and the resolve to avenge the deaths of those killed becomes much less and our vigilance lessons as time heals the pain of the tragedy.

The PC crowd however is a completely different story. Political correctness could be the death blow to our Nation because of politicians who are afraid to make any type of stand since it may cost them a vote or anger even one constituent especially if that constituent is a liberal. Politicians have no problem angering conservatives because we do at least understand the issues and we think through out political decisions. As a result whether they are PC or not matters little because our decision is based on our core beliefs and our understanding of the issue because we have sought to understand it.

Liberals are just the opposite. They act on their emotion of the moment and follow whoever is showing the issue of the moment. They jump on a ,"cause," because everyone else they know does and follow whoever happens to champion that cause today and then follow whoever champions the next cause tomorrow. Their collective memory lasts as long as the cause of the moment or as long as a liberal politician keeps the kettle stirred which is why liberals are so politically correct so as not to offend anyone or stand against anything which may cost them a vote.

The combination of the time which has passed since 9/11 and the liberal PC crowd has brought about the result of allowing the Mosque being built next to Ground Zero to proceed as it has. The Town Halls where the anger of the families who lost loved ones on 9/11 have been expressed have be virtually ignored and most Americans are likely not even aware that this aborition is well on its way to becoming a reality next to the site of the Trade Center.

Additionally most Americans have no understanding that this will become a shrine to the Muslim world since it is their practice to build a Mosque at the location of what they consider a victory for Islam so that it may become a place of worship and a monument to Islamic triumph over infidels. In fact even during the coverage that is taking place this fact is not mentioned much which in itself becomes a tragedy.

If the situation was reversed and a Catholic or Protestant church was even considering building at or near the sight of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, not only would the people rise and resist but the Saudi government would throw those who wanted to build on their holy sight our of the country. That is even if the practice of either religion was allowed in the country at all. Of course I am not suggesting that we disallow the practice of the Muslim religion in The United States but we do not have to cow down just because of fear that they might be offended if we take a principled stand.

Nothing changes the fact that every killer who flew the planes that hit The World Trade Center, the Pentagon and crashed in Shanksville PA were Muslims. Nor the fact that those who planned 9/11 and supported it were also Muslim. Nor the thousands of American soldiers who have sacrificed their lives fighting for this country in the war that ensued after 9/11 have died at the hands of Muslims. Yet New York City the sight of the worst action taken by Muslims on 9/11 is not even hedging at allowing a Mosque commemorating the Islamic destruction of The World Trade Center to be built next to the sacred ground.

Would Honolulu have allowed a Shinto shrine to be built next to Pearl Harbor in 1951? Not likely. Yet New York has allowed the building of a Mosque next to Ground Zero to pass all the requirements necessary and City officials are defending its building and as usual not a word is being said from Obama's administration since the defense of everything Muslim is the practice regardless of the consequences or the ramifications.

This administration has tried to hide the fact that even the latest terrorist attacks in out country were of Muslim origin. The Christmas Day bomber, the Fort Hood murderer and the Times Square bomber were all Muslim and were actions planned and supported by Muslim clerics who work hand in hand with Al Qaeda and seek the destruction of America and the killing of Americans. So the silence from the White House is no surprise.

So thanks to PC and the official position of favoring all things Muslim by the current administration the Mosque next to Ground Zero is likely to become a reality. The anger of the families of 9/11 are having no impact. The outrage of the few in the Nation who even know about it because of the lack of coverage is having no impact. The PC, "news," networks and newspapers are not going to give this story the coverage it deserves in order to inform the country of this insult. So the outrage by the country as a whole will not come about and even if it did the PC crowd and the Obama administration will do as they always have and ignore the people.

The terrorists who flew the planes on 9/11 worshipped at a Mosque in New York City. Now unless something drastic forces a change, Muslims will have a shrine to worship next to the sight where these murderers who Islam considers heroes killed 2726 innocent people in an unprovoked attack against our country. This will become a new Mecca for Islam and will likely breed new home grown killers who could well be the next 9/11 murderers in the name of Allah. But who cares since Muslims will not be offended by being denied their Mosque and their shrine to their 9/11 triumph.

To some Americans the Electoral College is confusing, The purpose by the Framers of the Constitution for the Electoral College was to prevent the more populace states from solely electing a President and give smaller populated states a voice in the Presidential election. For instance if the Electoral College did not exist populace states such as California, New York, Ohio and Texas among others would have the ability by shear numbers only of electing the President every four years WITHOUT the inclusion of smaller populated states like Wyoming and Montana to name a few.

The Electoral College Constitutionally allows every state to have a voice in the election. The candidate that wins the popular vote in any particular state receives the electors from that state whose numbers match the Congressional Districts of the state. Only Nebraska and Maine split electors according to percentages of vote for Presidential candidates in their state.

Now a group of left wingers are attempting to eliminate the balance the Electoral College brings to the Presidential race. Massachusetts is currently debating legislation to join five other states in awarding all their state electors to the Presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote and not just the popular vote in their particular state. Several other states are considering this unconstitutional move to in essence eliminate the Electoral College and usurp the Constitution before the 2012 election.

Currently it takes 270 electoral votes to win the Presidential election. With the move to eliminate the current Constitutional electoral system, a Presidential candidate could campaign ONLY in the 11 most populace sates in the Union and win the popular vote in those states winning the election. A move which would eliminate the other 39 states from having ANY voice in the election of the President.

The left see an opportunity in this unconstitutional move to use Democrat popularity in more liberal and populace states like New York and California as a means of eliminating any candidate other than a Democrat from ever winning a Presidential election again. Our Founders understood that as the country grew and the population of the country even as it did in the 1700's centered around larger cities, that more rural areas and states would have no voice in Presidential elections. Thus the Electoral College and balancing the vote so the same larger population areas would not be the ONLY citizens who elect a President.

This move sees the trend of the popularity of Barack Obama sliding more each day and as a result the very distinct possibility that he cannot be re-elected in 2012. So rather than following the Constitutional standard which has worked successfully since the election of George Washington, the left seeks to illegally usurp the Constitution by changing state election rules in liberal states in order to win future elections by stealing the voice of the people.

I have reached my point of no return with Senator Lindsey Graham. I have long be disgusted with this RINO who has no backbone and waves his so called, "principles," whenever he thinks is is politically expedient. In 2004 when this blog was first started, Oliver Benton was a regular contributor and since because of a heavy schedule has not been posting for quite a while.

As one of my best friend though we still discuss politics on a regular basis and following is an e-mail that I sent to Graham from Oliver and myself informing this Senator that he no longer represent South Carolina or we who sent him to Washington. I have sent many e-mails to Graham and on three occasion in expressing my anger at his actions he has written a personal letter to me trying to explain his actions. This time I could care less if he responds because what he has to say is of no account since he no longer represent Oliver and I in any way.

Here is the e-mail:

Senator Lindsey Graham
Washington, DC

Dear Senator Graham,

We have had it with you. In the last two elections you have received our vote as the Republican nominee for your Senate seat in the State of South Carolina. In the last election, 2008 we reluctantly voted for you because there was no other alternative except the Democrat candidate who we could not vote for. Rest assured that 2008 is the last vote we will cast for you regardless of whether you are the GOP nominee for your seat in 2014 or not.

We would rather leave the selection of Senator blank on the ballot than waste another vote for you again. You no longer represent us or the State of South Carolina. You have betrayed the conservative platform in which you have campaigned in two election cycles and as a result we cannot in good conscience cast another vote which may help keep you in Washington.

You betrayed us when you joined the gang of 14 trying to usurp the Constitution by gathering other Senators who ignore the Constitution as you do and attempting to diminish the Constitutional responsibility which belongs to any President to nominate judges to the federal bench from the Supreme Court down to the lower courts.

You betrayed us when you worked with John Kerry in creating an unconstitutional energy bill which dictates through government how a business operates from an energy stand point and through the taxation known as, "cap and trade," that your bill will create, Americans from all walks of life will pay through the nose for energy costs so that you, John Kerry and others who have bought into the lies of Global Warming can appease leftist environmentalists and have your day in the sun as the tree huggers and their Main Stream Media cohorts praise you for this illegal legislative debacle.

There have been many other betrayals but your sole GOP backing of current Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is the straw that breaks the camels back. I do agree with you that a President has the authority to nominate who he pleases and that is a consequence of elections. But the responsibility of the Senate Constitutionally is to advise and consent in such a way that assures the American people that a judicial nominee will adhere to the strict Constitutional definition of the judiciary. Applying the law ONLY as it is written without prejudice and without using ANY political ideology in their judicial decisions.

Kagan's history is one of total leftist political ideology in every position she has held. Her writings express this ideology, her decisions as an attorney and as an educator while Dean of the Harvard Law School clearly show that she could care less about Constitutional principles and if confirmed she will be an activist judge who rules on political ideology rather than Constitutional law and the strict definition of a jurist of The Supreme Court.

Her answers while somewhat vague to the various questions asked of her during Senate hearings show this to be true and yet you who claim to be a conservative and who also claim to believe that a judge should not be activist and follow strict Constitutional principles became the lone Republican to say yes to Kagan and then say that a President deserves to have his nominee appointed. You did not believe this when you joined the gang of 14!

Mr. Graham you have lost our confidence our support and most importantly our vote. As we have already stated but state again for emphasis, even if you are the nominee in 2014, while we will not vote for the Democrat candidate as their ideology consistently disagrees with our conservative values, we choose to leave the Senate box blank on the ballot rather than waste another vote on you. You are a great disappointment and have betrayed the people of South Carolina and the Nation.


Ken Taylor and John Oliver Benton.


Newt Gingrich former Speaker of the House visited the Sean Hannity show on Fox News and made a dramatic comparison between Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. Newt's conclusion is that, "Reagan told the truth." The lies of Barack Obama are obvious and intentional in order to push his agenda.

Even Obama knows that if he tells the truth about his policy and the direction he is trying to take our Nation the people would rebel en mass. Oh, that's right we already are rebelling since we the people understand that Obama is taking our country in a Marxist direction never intended by our Founders. Obama lies one, because the truth is not in him and two, because he does not trust the people.

When President Reagan spoke his honesty came through in everything he said. He trusted the American people and understood that if he leveled with us we had the sense to understand and decide of our own accord whether his policy or his approach was right for our Nation. This is why Reagan was popular with Americans because he was honest with us, trusted us and we backed him because we trusted him and he earned that trust.

Barack Obama has and will never gain the trust of the people because he does nothing to earn it. He lies to deceive us in order to pass his agenda. But the people are seeing through the lies and taking a stand against his agenda and he still ignores us.

Reagan in his trust of the people never ignored the people but inspired and embraced who we are as Americans and the people responded to this mutual trust and honesty that Reagan had throughout his public career and especially his Presidency. Obama is the opposite and as a result the people are showing their disgust as his poll numbers slide lower everyday.

Americans expect honesty and trust from their President. Americans expect their President to inspire and express to us and the world the greatness of America and Americans. Reagan understood this and proudly showed his love of country and the people. Obama loves neither this country nor the people and will never be trusted nor admired and beloved as Ronald Wilson Reagan.

The Top 5 Most Ridiculous Things Obama Has Done Since the Oil Spill

There are many harsh words in the English language that are descriptive in nature yet are not considered vulgar and one of those is hate. Whenever hate is attached to a person or a thing it is because the individual who uses the word or whose actions fulfill the definition of the word have an utter disdain and disgust for the person or thing in which the word is directed.

As an American it does not come as an easy task in accepting the we have a President of The United States who is supposed to be the international representative of our country and our people, who hates we who he represents and the Nation he has the responsibility to lead. But Barack Obama's actions toward the people and our country are those of an individual who hates both.

From the moment he took office he has shown a complete disdain toward everything that traditionally is America. He tours the world telling world leaders that our country is arrogant and is the source of all the worlds problems then apologizes at every opportunity for who we are as a Nation and what we stand for in freedom and prosperity.

Every initiative that he has pushed whether health care or financial reform seeks to not only destroy what America is and reshape it into something that it was never meant to be but the very people who through his initiatives he claims to be helping are actually punished by those initiatives and enslaved to the government whether individuals or business.

He shows his hatred for our military by tying their hands with rules of engagement that endanger their lives. Rather than sending assistance in the numbers which commanders see as necessary to win the war, he decreases the numbers asked for and sends reinforcements slowly which defeats the purpose for increasing our presence and having an overwhelming force to win. Of course he has already admitted that winning a war is not his goal so this too comes as no surprise.

The Gulf of Mexico and our Nation is facing the greatest environmental disaster in history and instead of pulling out all of the stops to face the problem and deal with the situation he has done as little as possible to clean up the mess. Whenever someone on the local or state level has taken the initiative to try and clean up the Gulf, Obama has allowed the federal government to hamper every effort made by regulation or some other bureaucratic nightmare.

He claims to be working tireless in addressing the need of millions of Americans who have lost their job yet every financial initiative he has pushed from the stimulus to the financial reform bill punishes private business through over regulation, taxes and government interference to the point that a business either eliminates jobs to cut costs or freezes hiring our of fear as to just how much the government will take from business and cut into profits which are necessary for job creation and growth.

Obama talks of fiscal responsibility but is in actuality is the most fiscally irresponsible President in our Nations history as deficits, spending and debt have climbed to levels never dreamt of in the past and are unsustainable. Yet Obama ignores the reality and seeks more spending and greater deficits to the detriment of our children and the eventual bankruptcy of our country.

He appeases our enemies and insults our friends like Israel. He says he cares and understands the hardships that Americans are facing while playing golf every other day and vacationing more than any of his predecessors have to this point in their term. Three of those vacations have take place since the Gulf oil spill began and not one in the Region he claims to care so much for. On this last jaunt to Maine he had no qualms about using tax payer money to fly his dog Bo on a special jet to meet the family who had already arrived in Maine.

He whines that he wants a united American yet his every move seeks division and both he and his wife use the race card for political gain seeking to divide our Nation racially at every opportunity. His silence on extremely controversial issues such as the DOJ dismissed case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party and the resolution by the NAACP against the Tea Party movement reinforces the racial divide and as a result embraces it.

When members of his own party make charges of racism against average American who are doing nothing more than exercising their Constitutional right to dissent with the government Obama's silence is loudly proclaiming he agrees with the false accusations. He uses race and his own ethnicity as a political tool to try and silence any opposition to his agenda as racially motivated because he happens to be a black President rather than facing the true meaning of the opposition being anger and disagreement with the direction he is taking our country and the impact of his socialist policy.

His use of race as a political tool ONLY for his political advantage with no merit or evidence in the accusations made only breeds hate and divisiveness among the people. Creating racial problems in our Nation that we had come a long way in overcoming and grown past after much sacrifice and work from true civil rights pioneers who fought to bring equality in the races.

These are the actions of a man who hates what America is and hates Americans especially those who do not conform to his ideal of American as a second class Nation on an equal footing with the rest of the world. Anything he cannot control through government he seeks to destroy in order to gain that control. Anyone who stands in his way in opposition he seeks to demonize as racist in order to divide the people and place them against one another for his political gain.

Someone who loves their country and the American people would not seek to destroy the very principles that we have followed since our birth and use political means to breed hatred among the people. Someone who loves their country would not apologize for her or portray Americans as arrogant and callus to the world and its leaders.

Hate is a harsh and bitter word whose meaning is a bitter pill to swallow. Yet Barack Obama the man who claimed to be full of compassion and hope on the campaign trail has proven to be a President who passionately hates everything we as a people and we as a Nation stand for. By dividing us he forces his hatred of us to us and it breeds like a cancer. His hatred of our country is his political motivation to destroy the Republic our Founders deemed to the people and rebuild it in his own Marxist ideology and fashion.

We have watched the numbers of Barack Obama drop sharply and consistently for several months with no end in sight for the slide. Numbers that are dropping as fast as his Presidency is failing and the American people are awakened to the lies he has told and the radical direction he is taking the country and the people do not like it.

Most of the polling showing just how badly Obama is doing has been quoted from sources like Rasmussen, who is considered by most as a more conservative poll. When in actuality Scott Rasmussen pollS likely voters and not registered voters like other pollsters which tends to lean a little more conservative. Gallup and other more left leaning polls like CBS also have been showing Obama numbers sliding significantly but not to the extent that Rasmussen has.

But a poll that has just been released is not only one of the most telling as to just how much the American people are disgusted with Obama but also just how bad this total failure is doing his,"job," and how much Americans cannot wait to get him out of office.

Public Policy Polling which is a very sympathetic pollster for Democrats and whose polling samples are ALWAYS several points higher for Democrats than Republicans and Independents shows Obama losing re-election to just about every possible candidate who at this point in the game is considered a possible GOP contender in 2012.

According to the poll which sampled 39% Democrat, 34% Republican and only 27% Independents shows Obama losing to Mitt Romney 46 -42, Mike Huckabee 47 - 45, Newt Gingrich 46 - 45 and tied with Sarah Palin at 46. The only name polled that lost to Obama was Arizona Governor Jan Brewer who lost only because she has little national name recognition.

Among Independents EVERY possible candidate in the poll even Governor Brewer defeats Obama significantly. Obama did not poll above 42% against anyone and polled in the upper thirties against three of the five possible candidates used in the poll.

The poll did not just stop at sampling for the 2012 election. It also polled concerning Obama's approval rating with the sampling. His overall approval rating in the poll was 46% and again this is a Democrat leaning poll which samples registered voters rather than likely voters a sampling that always favors Democrats. Among Independents in the poll Obama only had a 40% approval rating. He has virtually lost the Independent vote which was key to electing him in 2008.

Polling like this is also very bad news for November as it shows just how much the American people are disgusted with the direction Obama and Democrats are taking this country. Many including Press Secretary Robert Gibbs acknowledge that Democrat are likely to lose the House with many stating that the Senate will also fall from Democrat hands.

Obama has destroyed Democrats which is a good thing for we who consider ourselves conservative. But the down side is that the path he has taken to Democrat destruction is also destroying out country. November cannot come fast enough to end the reign of Obama and his socialist alliance with Congress and tie his hands making him a two year lame duck until we can boot him out in 2012.

I have been a political junkie for more than 35 years. My conservative beliefs are based upon my personal observations and convictions that have shown me during my lifetime that our Founders understood that the only way a free people can exist and prosper is if government is prevented by law, (our Constitution), from involving itself in the lives of its citizens in an attempt to control how they live, worship and achieve.

Yet when Barack Obama was elected, although I did not and still do not agree with anything that this socialist ideologue stands for nor any part of his agenda which is contrary to our Constitution and the will of the people, I did naively believe that since our Nation had grown past the race problems of our history enough to elect a black President, the racial divide would crumble and it would decrease as an issue in America.

Then the very person who was elected along with his wife have, since taking office, become the single most damaging set back to race relations and created the greatest racial divide in our Nation since before the Civil Rights movement and Martin Luther King in the early sixties. Everything that the Obama's do centers around race and they are the most prolific user of ,"the race card," even more than Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

If anyone disagrees with Obama it is because of his color and not his Marxist politics. Michelle Obama stood before the NAACP Conference and declared that those who stand against her husband are racists. Though she did not specifically use the word racist the context of her speech especially when she mentioned her husband and the opposition against him the accusation of racism is the only conclusion that can be made from her remarks.

The Obama Justice Department has dismissed one of the most blatant cases of voter intimidation in our history that was perpetrated by The New Black Panther Party in Philadelphia. A case where conviction was cut a dried and according to a DOJ official who resigned over the case it is now the policy of the Obama DOJ to not prosecute ANY person of color no matter what the charge, thus the dismissal of the Black Panther case.

The following video features a heated discussion of the case between Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly a Constitutional attorney and Kirsten Powers who is taken to the wood shed by Kelly. Although the video is a bit long it can be considered one of the best ten minutes in television.

During the NAACP Conference without the first piece of evidence the organization issued a resolution charging racism to the Tea Party movement. By his silence Obama has obviously agreed with the resolution. His silence has been one of the loudest agreements on the false charges against the Tea Party movement since its beginnings. Again everyday Americans who are doing nothing more than opposing the administration and exercising a Constitutional right to dissent with the government are charged with racism BECAUSE the President happens to be black.

Electing THIS black man as President has reversed race problems in our Nation. Advances which have been fought for and sacrificed for over the past five decades have become almost in vain as Obama has taken our Nation back down a path in which we as a people had worked through and grown past. Sure racism existed before Obama but it was resigned to a minority of ignorant people both black and white who refused to grow up and accept people for who they are and not just judge them by the color of their skin. Ignorant people who used race as an excuse to express their equally ignorant anger.

Obama has made race an issue only for political reasons, that is once again in the forefront and creating a racial divide which is no longer who we are as a people or a Nation. But by making race an issue he uses it to condemn anyone as racist who opposes what he is doing. I do not care what color Obama is but I do care about what he is doing and no matter what his race I would oppose his agenda and the direction he is taking this country. This does not make me a racist but rather a concerned American who understands that our Republic is threatened by this man who seeks to destroy our country and divide our Nation racially for his own political advancement and agenda.

This tremendous letter sent by a highly honored WWII veteran from Hawaii, Harold B. Estes, who is well known for his seventy years of service in patriotic organizations and who prior to this letter had never before spoken out against any government official, was dictated to a friend and signed by Mr. Estes then sent to Barack Obama.

This hero who defended our Nation on the battlefields of WWII tells it like it is and hits the nail on the head in his exacting criticism of Obama. When an honored hero like Mr. Estes speaks even the arrogant Obama should listen. Here is his letter found at the web page of a fellow patriot, Tom's Place.

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a "rest home" located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.

You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

" We’re no longer a Christian nation"

" America is arrogant"

Your wife even announced to the world,"America is mean- spirited. " Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said," America hasn’t lived up to her ideals."

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.


Harold B. Estes Thank you Mr. Estes for your service in defending our Nation and for your patriotism and willinsness to take a stand against the destruction of our country at the hands of Barack Obama.

Just when I thought I could not be more angry at the Presidency of Barack Obama as I have been for over a year, he pulls another illegal rabbit out of his Marxist agenda hat. Soon after the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon and the beginning of the now massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Obama through his Interior Secretary Ken Salazar issued a drilling moratorium for the Gulf stopping all drilling over 500 feet.

In late June Federal Judge Martin Feldman halted the moratorium stating that it was arbitrary, illegal and based on falsified information. Obama then sought appeal in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals and the court unanimously upheld Feldman's decision denying the appeal and adding to Feldman's statements about the moratorium that it would also economically destroy the Gulf Region.

The Constitutional balance of power worked as the Judicial Branch using the law as its bases prevented the Executive Branch from abusing its power and placing an illegal action in effect destroying an industry and the economic livelihood of tens of thousands of Americans all based on information falsified by the administration.

Barack Obama has proven once again that the law, the Constitution and the people of our Nation mean NOTHING to him as he has ignored the judgement of the court and Ken Salazar has issued ANOTHER moratorium based on the same falsified and illegal information but this time expanding the ban to include ALL floating drilling platforms, which are the ONLY drilling rigs that operate in the Gulf.

So now drilling is completely stopped in the Gulf of Mexico taking the risk of never restarting since oil companies will move the floating rigs rather then leave them idle. During a time when unemployment is running rampant in our country, the moratorium will take the jobs of 24,000 in just Louisiana alone and more than 50,000 in the Region. These numbers do not count jobs that will be lost for companies that provide a supporting role for the rigs and those who work on them. 30% of our domestic oil supply will disappear forcing more foreign oil purchase in order to make up for the loss. As a result gas prices will rise as well.

Obama's anti-oil agenda is the ONLY reason for this moratorium. An agenda which appeases his left wing enviro crowd and is part of a master plan to end US oil production in order to force his green energy initiative down our throats while the Nation starves for oil which is the basis of our economy. Obama cares NOTHING for this Nation, our economy, the law, the Constitution nor the people of The United States.

This strictly political move will destroy the Gulf region and the lives of tens of thousands. It will cost every American who drives a vehicle more at the pump and consumer prices will rise as fuel costs go up due to the ban and the destruction of 30% of our domestic oil production. The Oath he took when entering office to, "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution," was the first and biggest lie of thousands this imbecile has made in the eighteen months he has been President.

I have always been one who tends to be bit emotional during the celebration of Independence Day. When I watch the patriotism, the flag waving and listen to the stirring sounds of our National Anthem, Stars and Stripes Forever and God Bless America I cannot help but shed a tear of pride as the emotion of love for my country swells within my chest.

This year though it seemed that this emotion was more than usual. The tears of pride that usually were momentary during certain patriotic happenings were nearly always just below the surface throughout the weekend as everything left me chocked up. It was not until I visited with my son who has just become a father and I held my new grand daughter that I realized why I was more chocked up that usual.

I realized that the freedom and liberty that our Founders so bravely and selflessly fought for to create this Nation are not only being threatened in ways never before known in America but if we who understand that threat do not stand as our Founders did 234 years ago, my son and especially my precious little grand daughter will not know the freedom that even I have experienced in my life time.

Abraham Lincoln once stated that, " if destruction be our lot, " as a Nation then it would not come from some foreign power but from within. We are seeing that destruction taking place at the hands of a Presidential administration who has no regard for the people, our Constitution and the principles that were set forth by our Founders when we declared Independence in July of 1776.

As I read once again the immortal words of Thomas Jefferson in our Declaration of Independence I realized that many of the grievances that our Founders had with King George we face again today with Barack Obama and the alliance he has with the Congress that passes everything he puts forth without regard to consequence or Constitutional muster.

Obama's agenda and many of the moves he makes which do not require Congress threaten our liberties as the abuses of King George threatened those who gathered in Philadelphia during the summer of 1776. We face legislative initiatives which tax us and enslave us to government without regard to the will of the people and whose sole purpose is to control some aspect of our life denying us the freedom to make choices that reflect our conscience or ability to provide for our families.

We face threats to our freedom to speak as we see constant accusation to any of us who raise our voice in opposition to the administration as patriots are threatened with law suites, and called everything from Nazi to anti-American simply for dissenting against the current regime and its alliance of socialism which threatens our liberties and our Republic.

We see the ability of the press being hampered in reporting the greatest environmental threat and government failure in our history as fines and imprisonment are given if reporters come within 65 feet of anything concerning the Gulf oil spill. Not a safety precaution but a deliberate suspension of the First Amendment to prevent the country from seeing just how badly this administration has failed in handling the massive problem.

Even as Americans are making it known that we will not stand for this threat to our Nation and come November by our vote we will remove this liberty stealing Congress from power and tie the hands of their equally thieving President, Democrats have talked of using the lame duck session in December as a means of forcing through more unconstitutional measures such as card check and cap and trade since those who lose in November will no longer need concern themselves with the response from voters.

King George would have been proud of the Obama administration. Our Founders would see this President in the same light as they did George and his Tory Governors who enforced the abusive measures that consistently came to the Colonies robbing the people of their rights as Obama robs us of ours. The difference is that Obama is much more subtle in his thievery than George was as he pretends to force this agenda claiming it is in the best interest of the country using every crisis available as the excuse to take away our liberties.

Shortly before leaving Boston as a delegate to the First Continental Congress, John Adams spoke at a gathering of Patriots who were meeting to express their grievances with the Crown. Adams spoke of the God given right of all men to have the freedom to choose how they live and he ended this masterful speech with these words, " Liberty will reign in America!"

To Barack Obama and his socialist alliance with Congress, I say as Adams did so many years ago, "Liberty will reign in America." We the people will not stand for the taking of our freedoms. We will not stand for the robbing of our unalienable rights of, "life liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

We will stand as our Founders did against the tyranny of King George to the tyranny of Barack Obama and prevent this destruction of our Republic at the hands of a government whose sole purpose in to gain control of our lives by sucking the life of liberty from our people. As our Declaration states we have the right to abolish any government which seeks this end and we will use the just authority we have as Americans through our Constitution to abolish Obama's government as we take our Nation back from he and his socialist alliance with our vote and our stance for the liberties of all Americans.

Since taking office Barack Obama has claimed many things that have been shown to be lies. Among those are, he, "will not rest," until the unemployment situation is ,"fixed." He has also blamed President Bush and the GOP for all of the economic woes that have caused unemployment to rise as significantly as it has.

According to Obama liberal Democrat policy is the ONLY way that our economy is going to recover and unemployment numbers will begin to drop. He claims that the government under these liberal policies will create enough jobs to employ the unemployed. Of course sane people understand that the government cannot and does not create any job. The private sector creates jobs and until that sector has financial relief in the from of less taxation and a growing economy that is not being constantly manipulated by government, the private sector WILL NOT start hiring enough to cause employment numbers to drop significantly if at all.

So whose policy then consistently provides a better economic atmosphere for business and hiring? Taking a look at the graph above starting with the GOP majority in Congress in 1995 after the sweep which took place in the 1994 election, unemployment stayed at or below 6% with several years hovering around 4% which is considered by most economic experts as full employment for the Nation.

Contrast this with the Democrats moving into the majority in 2007 after the 2006 election and notice the unemployment numbers ONLY rising until the slight dip down which has just recently taken place because of the hiring of thousands of temporary Census workers. As Democrat economic policy began taking over even under the administration of a Republican President unemployment constantly rose.

Then after the 2008 election and the continuation of a Democrat majority in Congress combined with a liberal/Marxist President in The White House having a free reign with liberal economic policy of massive spending, tremendous deficits and unending debt the unemployment numbers not only rose but SKYROCKETED through the roof with no end in sight as even the latest dip includes over 650,000 who have just given up looking since jobs are so scarce. If those more than half a million were included unemployment would have gone WELL over 10%.

I am not by any means defending the out of control spending that took place especially in the last few years of a GOP majority but even at their worst the GOP economic policy did not create the massive unemployment caused by unsustainable deficit spending as we have experienced since Democrats became the majority in 2007 and took the Presidency in 2009.

Facts and statistics do not lie even though Obama and other liberal politicians who claim that their policy is improving the economy and creating jobs do lie as they try to spin that spending, borrowing and debt creation is the best and only way to recover an economy. Nancy Pelosi actually had the gaul to claim that unemployment benefits are the BEST stimulus and job creator. She is obviously as crazy as she looks.

We have watched the decline of Europe as these liberal spending policies have been practiced for decades. Europe is beginning to understand the destruction this economic policy causes and in the last G20 conference Barack Obama stood alone calling for MORE spending to stimulate economies while most of Europe called for cutting spending and balancing budgets.

The graph and liberal destructive economic policies speak for themselves. Cutting taxes and spending has proven to be the best job creator as it allows private business to grow spawning hiring though business expansion. Obama is blind to this truth and as long as he has a Democrat majority to legislate his government growth, deficit spending agenda unemployment will continue to rise and jobs will also continue to disappear.

At a Philadelphia polling place in the 2008 election two members of the New Black Panther Party stood in uniform with clubs outside of the polling place intimidating voters who entered to cast their ballot for President. The scene was video taped and taken before the Obama Justice Department for prosecution on the grounds of voter intimidation.

The Civil Rights Division dismissed the case and as has been reported the dismissal was on the grounds that the defendants were let off because the Division would not prosecute because of their color according to a DOJ official who resigned because of the case. Even with the clear video evidence and the fact that the defendants did not show for a hearing Holder dismissed the case , "claiming," no evidence.

The above video shows not only the video evidence the DOJ had for the case but goes further to show just who was let off in this cut and dried case of voter intimidation. Every indication of the dismissal of this case shows that Holder knew of the evidence and that racial politics was involved from the top levels of the DOJ. Obama's silence is also very telling since the case is getting a considerable amount of media coverage his silence is an indictment of full knowledge of the case and ignoring it hoping it will go away. It isn't and it won't and Obama along with his lame AG should be held in contempt for allowing this to slide through the justice system.

"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding." Article VI, section II The United States Constitution

The Obama administration filed suit in a Phoenix Federal Court yesterday against the State of Arizona over its recently signed but not implemented immigration law. Stating the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution which is located at the top of this post, The Justice Department states in the suit that, "The nation's immigration laws reflect a careful and considered balance of national law enforcement, foreign relations, and humanitarian interests," and as a result the Arizona law violates the Constitution since the Supremacy Clause states that federal law trumps state law.

Unless the Obama administration manages to find an extremely activist liberal Judge to try this case is it destined to lose because of the fallacy of their argument. While the Supremacy Clause does hold that federal law trumps state law and Constitutionally according to Article II, Section 8 the Congress has responsibility for all laws concerning, "Naturalization," where the Obama suit will fail is that the Arizona law is not creating any law which violates the federal authority but only allowing for the state to enforce already EXISTING federal law concerning immigration.

If Arizona had legislated new immigration law that did not already exist on the federal level then the Obama case would have merit. But the Arizona law simply enforces existing law and as a result it does not violate any aspect of the Supremacy Clause since the law it is enforcing already exists on the federal level. Arizona is not exceeding federal law just enforcing it.

Every state has the right to protect its citizens when threatened and Arizona is facing a massive threat to is citizenry due to the problem they are experiencing along their border with Mexico. The federal government has failed miserably in enforcing immigration law and as a result Arizona has done nothing more than step in where the feds have failed to act.

Barack Obama through this unjustified law suit is showing the American people that enforcing immigration law and securing our borders in not a concern for his administration. This suit is nothing more than a political move in a election year to court the Latino vote for the November mid-terms. Even when the suit fails as it should since no Constitutional law has been violated, Obama can claim to Latino voters that he at least tried so Democrats , "deserve, " their vote. I hope Latino voters are not fooled by this ignorant political move to buy their vote with a court case filed to get headlines.

I usually ignore much of what comes down the pike on CNN because of their obvious left leaning bias. But this video and report which fell by the wayside during the Independence Day weekend lashed out at the Obama administration and the new policy of preventing reporters from getting within 65 feet of ANYTHING to do with the oil spill in order to hide their failure and incompetence.

Again Obama transparency is seen for the lie that it has been since he took office. Anderson Copper is clearly angered and lashing out at the new policy which is accompanied by fines and arrest if violated by reporters, that the administration has instituted in order to prevent pictures and reports which show the failure in handling the worst oil spill in history.

The Gulf of Mexico is dying and Obama is more concerned with image and hiding the truth of his failure than handling the problem and adhering to the Constitutional right of free speech and freedom of the press.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." The Declaration of Independence

With these words Thomas Jefferson embodied the heart of freedom and liberty. As the signers of the Declaration Of Independence placed their very lives on the line for these principles of freedom to gain independence on that summers day in 1776 they gave birth to a new idea. An idea that had never before found its equal or better in a government by man. An idea that encompassed the most basic of human rights but had never before been allowed to flourish in any country.

An idea which allowed all people regardless of where they came from, who their parents were, what their financial status was or how they worshipped the unalienable right to think do and live as they pleased. To prosper in accordance with their will and willingness to achieve. To worship in accordance to their personal beliefs. To raise their family on their own land without being subservient to another.

To live without the fear of oppression or threat of a tyrant, monarch or government that imposed their will upon the individual. To some all of these freedoms were not evident from the beginning but the ground work was laid to make those freedoms possible for any and everyone.

To this cause and the birth of this new nation in which these freedoms could find root in the heart and life of every person who set foot upon her shores, the signers of The Declaration dedicated themselves in, "support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. "

It would be another six years before full independence was gained and yet another seven more before the government which embodied theses principles of freedom was established. In those long hard fought years many would sacrifice their, lives , fortunes and sacred honor, to gain the freedom that was promised in The Declaration.

Most who made this sacrifice never signed the document that gave birth to this Nation. Most who sacrificed never made the pledge of the signers publicly but all who sacrificed realized that with freedom comes a price and each were willing to pay that price regardless of the cost, for in their hearts they knew that their sacrifice would not be in vain. With that sacrifice would come a new nation forged in blood and dedicated to the premise that all people should and can be free.

Those who made this sacrifice were not making an idle stand nor one that just followed the crowd but willingly stood for what they believed and sought within their very heart, the chance to be free. The chance to wake every morning to know that they held within their own hands the ability to lead the life of their choosing. This is why they fought. This is why many died and this is why throughout our history we have continued to fight and sacrifice to pay the price of freedom.

As we celebrate this 234th birthday of our freedom, as a nation let us not forget the sacrifice that has been made through all of those years to continually insure that each generation of Americans can enjoy the same freedoms as the generations who have gone before. Let us not forget the reason that we as a nation exist that, " life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, " may always be our national creed and our national calling.

May we never take for granted those freedoms and realize each freedom we possess as individuals and as a Nation has come with great sacrifice from the very inception of our country and that sacrifice still continues today to insure those freedoms and this Nation continue to live. We have a heritage of freedom and it is a heritage that we owe to continue at any cost to insure that future generations of Americans can celebrate and live in that same freedom.

God bless America and may He continue to bless our freedom and each of us who live in this land of the free.

On a rain soaked Tuesday 56 Americans gathered in the state house of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania voting on a Resolution of Independence proposed by Henry Lee of Virginia in June. Two days later, the fourth of July the immortal document, The Declaration of Independence was adopted to officially notify all why we must be a free and independent Nation severing all ties with Great Britain.

For this sacred cause these brave men were willing to sacrifice their, lives, fortunes and sacred honor to be free! Fellow Americans and patriots why we are who we are as a Nation and the reasons that we became a Nation must be reinforced and a constant reminder of what has been sacrificed for our liberty and the willingness to give all for freedom.

So in celebration of this day in which our Nation was born and the Resolution of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress I share with you our Declaration Of Independence. God bless American on our 234 birthday.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--

Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies"

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Happy Birthday to the greatest country in world history our beloved United States of America!

We have listened to Barack Obama claim for more than two months that he has everything under control in the Gulf of Mexico. He has stated numerous times that everything that can be done is being done. Yet 73 days into the disaster and ONLY after the heat from even those on the left became to hot in The White House kitchen did Obama the reactionary in chief FINALLY accept help from countries who have been offering since the beginning.

I have stated before that I truly believe that Obama is intentionally dragging his feet in the clean up operations in order to intensify the anger against, "big oil," as a political move to pass cap and trade and destroy the oil industry so that his green energy initiative can become front and center starving our Nation of much needed oil. At every opportunity where the federal government has failed to respond, Gulf States have been acting of their own accord only to be constantly disrupted by federal agencies who are acting on political agendas.

In the following video even Bill Clinton who I have seldom agreed with understands the priorities and the succession of those priorities unlike Obama who has everything backwards. Listen to Clinton's sound advice on how to tackle the disaster.

Notice the stressing of priorities which are polar opposite of the direction taken by Obama in handling the disaster. First stop the leak by any and all means necessary including blowing up the well. Second stem oil from reaching the shore, third minimize the damage and THEN AND ONLY THEN find out who is to blame whether BP, government agencies or both.

Clinton also understands that BP is doing all that is within their power to stop the leak and once again offers sound advice, get off BP's back and let them do their job! Obama is approaching the disaster completely the opposite of Clinton's advice. He has been going after BP at every opportunity including calling them on the carpet from the beginning.

Obama has resisted until the pressure became more than he could deny any assistance to help in the Gulf from hundreds of offers by dozens of countries. He has stalled equipment from getting to the Gulf and STILL has not waived the Jones Act which would allow foreign flagged ships to sail in our territorial waters and skim the oil from the surface. His FIRST priority has been to place blame and seek legal solutions rather than cleaning up the disaster.

The next video shows the devastating results of Obama's slow failed response. The pictures tell the story. I do caution as you watch that some of the commentary by the creator of the video does lean very much to the enviro left which I also consider part of the problem which created this disaster. Their lobbying over the decades forced oil companies to have to drill at depths which everyone knew were impossible to handle in the case of a broken and/or leaking well.

That said the sheer magnitude of the spill comes to light in ways that are not seen on news shows and the damage to the Gulf that may take years to repair. Note about half way through the video, the commentary does ask the question, where are the ships that can suck the oil from the surface. Well that answer is simple. Just ask Barack Obama and let him explain why he refuses to accept assistance of shipping that can suck the oil from the surface and why he refuses to, with a simple stroke of his pen waive the Jones Act and get everything needed to the Gulf to keep this vital sea from dying. Failure seems to be Obama's only course and his chosen option.
