Odds & Ends [March 2011]

Nine liberal Democrats have found something they agree with Republicans on: President Barack Obama’s authorization of military strikes on Libya without congressional consent is unconstitutional.

Those Democrats join GOP critics, including Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana, ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and tea party favorite Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky. And Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio even suggested that Obama’s action could be an “impeachable offense.”

Sen. Paul points out that Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution says “Congress shall have power to declare war.”

“It is alarming how casually the administration talks about initiating acts of war, as though Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution does not exist,” the freshman senator says in a statement on his congressional website. “Frankly, it is not up to the president whether or not we intervene in Libya, or set up ‘no-fly’ zones, or send troops. At least, it is not if we follow the Constitution.”

Obama has no authority to launch military attacks under the War Powers Resolution,Paul argues, because the United States has not been attacked. “This is not our fight,” he adds. “If the administration wants to make it our fight, let them make their case before Congress and put it to a vote. I would strongly oppose such a measure, but that is the proper way to proceed.”

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland, a senior Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, echoes Paul’s view. “The United States does not have a King's army," he said in a statement Monday. "President Obama's unilateral choice to use U.S. military force in Libya is an affront to our Constitution."

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, former Mexican President Vicente Fox says his nation is at “war” with drug cartels, and sharply criticized the Obama administration for failing to assist its beleaguered neighbor. Fox complained that “Obama is thoroughly mixed up.”

While schmoozing and lollygagging in Brazil, President Barack Obama made a stunning statement to Brazilians: “We want to help you with the technology to support and develop these oil reserves safely. And when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers.”

Meanwhile, here in the United States Obama’s drill ban prevents American companies from developing oil and natural gas resources in U.S. waters and from getting to shale reserves in the West and vast deposits in Alaska. His State Department is also holding up plans to build a pipeline that would transport oil from Canada’s tar sands to refineries near Houston. His actions have forced tens of thousands of oil workers and employees of ancillary industries to the unemployment lines.

Obama apparently cares more about growing jobs in Brazil than the U.S., and more about enriching developing nations than in reducing America’s dependence on foreign sources of oil.

His anti-American agenda comes more into focus every day, and his time of reckoning at the ballot box can’t come soon enough.

We continue to hear strange things from President Obama. This is from Bill Burbaum:

Obama's father served in WW II, really?

Of all the things I've seen or heard about Obama on the internet, NONE has hit me like this!! How can we not believe some of the charges about citizenship, religion, etc., after hearing what he says on this?

Obama said his father served in WW II? Barack's father served in WW II?

He said so in a speech. Here is an 18 second video:

CNN News clip: >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv4jnlkxOaw

Is he a compulsive liar? Were there no reporters who checked or double checked these statements and called the party on this? They did for everyone else. Why not him?

Like it or not, here are the facts:

Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama's father) Born: 4/4/36 Died: 11/24/82 at the age of 46. He was 5 years old when WW II started, and less than 9 1/2 yrs. old when it ended.

Lolo Soetoro (Obama's step father) Born: 1935 Died: 3/2/87 at the age of 52. He was 6 years old when WW II started, and 10 years old when it ended. He must have been the youngest Veteran in the war.

Recently, President Obama ordered U.S. military action in Libya, based in part on the authority of the United Nations Security Council and the recommendations of senior advisors including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the National Security Council's Samantha Power, and Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, all of whom were pressing for military action based on humanitarian concerns.

The President chose not to consult Congress, instead sending a letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI) telling them of the strikes on Libya under his constitutional authority as Commander-in-Chief - well AFTER the initial attacks.

Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle agree the President should have consulted Congress BEFORE any action was taken.

Consider Vice President Joe Biden's words referring to proposed actions of then-President George W. Bush:

"The president has no constitutional authority to take this country to war... unless we are attacked or he has proof that we are about to be attacked... If he does, I would move to impeach him..."

And yesterday, in one of several long and intense interviews concerning his outrage over President Obama's unilateral decision to authorize military action in Libya, Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) called the President's action "impeachable."

The Muslim Brotherhood, with the complicity of the Obama administration, has infiltrated the U.S. government at the highest levels and is influencing American policy that leaves the world’s Christians in grave danger, warns internationally known evangelist Franklin Graham.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is very strong and active here in our country,” Graham tells Newsmax. “We have these people advising our military and State Department. They've brought in Muslims to tell us how to make policy toward Muslim countries.

“It’s like a farmer asking a fox, ‘How do I protect my hen house?’"

That same Muslim Brotherhood is fomenting much of the rebellion and the deteriorating social order roiling the Middle East, forcing millions of Christians to flee for their lives, says Graham, son of beloved evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, and founder of The Samaritan’s Purse international charity.

'Dhimmitude' -- What does it mean?

Obama used it in the health-mandate bill.

Now isn't that interesting? It was used in the health care law.

Every day there's another revelation of what Obama and his fellow Democrats are doing against our country.

Dhimmitude -- I had never heard the word until now. Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. It's on page 107 of the Obamascare bill. I looked this up on Google and yes, it exists. It is a REAL word.

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.

ObamaScare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be "gambling", "risk-taking", and "usury" and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.

How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.

Dhimmitude serves two purposes: It enriches the Muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y, and Z types who have no moral anchor.

The year was 1947.

Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

Albert A. Gore, Jr.
Hillary Rodham
John F. Kerry
William J. Clinton
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses?

I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me.

No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens.
