Reminder To KC Area Readers: Counter The Pro-ObamaCare Mob In KC This Weekend

An event IN SUPPORT OF OBAMACARE ( say what?!) is being held this Saturday at 101st & Lowell from 8:30 to 10:30.

Michelle Malkin wrote earlier this year, about the importance of the right to counteract the big government alliances on the left  pushing ObamaCare:

Resistance has to happen on the ground, on the airwaves, and in the halls of Congress. ACORN, the SEIU, and the rest of the liberal grass-roots network are organized and committed to helping the White House. They’re pulling out all the stops.

This event is listed on My.BarackObama.com, aka Organizing for America. According to their about us page, they are “Project of the Democratic National Convention”, whatever that means. Here are the details, note the *ahem* lack of details about what ObamaCare will actually do:

Walk for the Walk (Health Care Organizing Event)
Join us Saturday, August 1st for a walk to support our health ideals of prevention, accountability, and support. We are walking to demonstrate our commitment to lower costs, improve access, and provide choice in accordance with President Obama’s Health Care Reform principles.
Time: Saturday, August 1 from 8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Host: Lynn Magenheimer
Location:
Brookridge Park (Lenexa, KS)
101st and Lowell
Lenexa, KS 66215
NOW …

The Kansas 9-12′rs are organizing a rally in opposition to their “Walk for the Walk” …
“This event is a “Health Care Organizing” event. We want to be a disruptive presence (hopefully overwhelmingly), but we want to be respectful too. I’m new at this, but it seems that a relatively silent presence and protest is appropriate. Bring signs and flags as usual. If you are bringing a flag only, maybe dress in black (mourning). Use your imagination, but act with dignity, honor and respect!”
I know this is short notice but we need to get as many people there as possible to oppose this ridiculous health care bill.  I hope you can make it for at least part of the rally.
We can no longer sit by & allow these groups to make the nation’s decisions. We must be heard!!  If that means we show up at their events, then so be it.  This is one way they will get the message … WE SURROUND THEM!!
There should be more of us than them….because there ARE more of us than them. Most Americans oppose ObamaCare. We need to let our voices be heard. Come armed with the facts to counter the ObamaLies

“teachable moment”

This picture tells the story, but if you’re interested in a good verbal beat down, Thomas Lifson at the American Thinker can oblige:

Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped  Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?’

Speaking of verbal beat downs, see Ace for more about “the beer summit”.

Compare to President Bush.

My favorite comment from the American Thinker post, from DW Cripps: <!– Comment: #35 –>

From beginning to end, the one person in this little vingette who has shown professionalism, integrity, restraint, honesty and character has been Sgt. Crowley!! Like many others, I was concerned that the Sergeant might end up being used as a PR tool by BO and Gates. I think that was the ultimate motive behind the so called “beer summit” as arranged by BO. However, by being himself – a man of character- Sgt. Crowley has outshined both Gates and BO. This photo really does put the lie to the charges of racism, rogue cop, acting stupidly, etc., and does expose BO for who and what he truly is.

Another Huge Round Of Protests Expected In Iran This Weekend

Will Obama continue to watch passively? That’s what FrontPageMagazine’s, Ben Johnson is asking: Will Obama at long last clench his fist in the face of brutal totalitarianism?:

Budapest, 1956.

Prague, 1968.

Gdansk, 1981.

Tianenmen Square, 1989.

Tehran, 2009.

Each of these surprise flashpoints in history’s long march against totalitarianism proved as dazzling at its outset as it did hopeless at its extermination. Each of them left a trail of broken bodies, but the last was different than all its historical forebears in one way: the president of the United States kept silent while it was unfolding. Barack Obama, and the world, saw police beat and gas protesters and kill 27-year-old music students and nine-year-old children; and Iranian reports indicate that those arrested were viciously tortured in a secret prison. All the while, the president maintained a reticence that helped enable the secret police. The young protesters who continue filling Iran’s streets this weekend to renew their revolt against corruption offer Barack Obama a unique opportunity: a chance to redeem his previous, disastrous inaction. Will he act this time to prevent hundreds more of their fellow citizens from meeting a similar fate?

His predecessors, who faced the actual threat of nuclear annihilation, greeted oppression with resistance. President Johnson called the Soviet invasion “patently contrived” and threatened United Nations action. Reagan, unable to garner NATO support for an effective response, imposed the economic sanctions at his disposal. George H.W. Bush, who was overly cozy with Beijing, verbally denounced the massacre and temporarily suspended diplomatic relations.

President Obama met crisis with equivocation, choosing to “withhold comment” about the transparently rigged election and standing idly by as Iranian secret police brutalized and arrested 2,500 democratic protesters, so as not be seen as “meddling.” Republicans John McCain and Lindsay Graham condemned his actions as “timid,” and even both houses of the Democrat-controlled Congress passed measures condemning the abuse more stridently than Obama. Finally, on June 20, Obama released a statement a week later calling on “the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people.”

Like his invitation for Iran to “unclench its fist” on nuclear weapons, his plea was ignored, as the mullahs’ enforcers murdered Neda Agha Soltan and rounded up hundreds more to a then-unknown location.

We now know their fate: torture and death in Iranian secret prisons. One person detailed the vicious beatings in a Kihrizak prison, where “at least 200 people in one room, and everyone was getting beatings with sticks…The walls were all bloody.” The police allegedly turned off the lights to thrash the protesters for half-an-hour in pitch black. Among those killed was Mohsen Rouhalamini, a nine-year-old boy and coincidentally the son of an adviser to one of Ahmadinejiad’s opponents.

Ahmadinejiad’s opponents could use a little help and encouragement from Obama, but so far he’s blowing it. This weekend will give him a second chance.

Meanwhile, as the Honduran government resists leftist totalitarianism, the Obama administration has sprung into action…to support the leftist totalitarian. It’s almost as if Obama has a soft spot for totalitarianism.

Front Page Of US Consulate In Jerusalem Website Devoid Of Jews

Powerline calls this, “wishful thinking” on the State Department’s behalf:

jerusalem

Not a single mention of Jewish people on the front page of the US Consulate Jerusalem website? What does this tell you?

Discover The Networks describes the Palestinian Authority, thus:

Since 1994, when almost all Palestinians living in Israel came under the autonomous and independent control of the PA, the economies of the West Bank and Gaza Strip have been crippled by the Authority’s despotic rule. By 2003, the West Bank’s GDP had shrunk to about one-tenth of what it had been in 1992 — a result of the PA’s misappropriation of more than $5.2 billion into the personal accounts of Arafat and his lieutenants and militias. The Second Intifada, which began in September 2000, also contributed to the sharp deterioration in Palestinians’ living standards. The poverty rate nearly tripled, from 20 percent in 1999 to 55 percent in 2003. Once-prosperous commercial towns became economic basket cases.

As early as 2001, the Government of Israel had designated the PA as an “Entity Supporting Terrorism.” In 2004, Papal Nuncio Msgr. Pietro Sambi described the Palestinian Authority Constitution as the “framework for a totalitarian Islamic terror state.” In April of that year, Arafat told the German magazine Focus that he was prepared to share power with the terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad in a new leadership structure that would operate in parallel with the Palestinian Authority. Arafat had released many members of both groups from PA jails.

After Arafat’s death, he was succeeded as the leader of both the PA and Fatah by Mahmoud Abbas, a.k.a. Abu Mazen.

Isn’t it nice to know that the US government supports the PA to the tune of 200 million, this year? Especially in light of this:

In July 2007 it was reported that in recent years two PA officials who were Fatah members had stolen tens of millions of U.S. dollars that had been earmarked to help Fatah ward off the aggression of its rival, Hamas. One of those officials, Mahmoud Dahlan, had smuggled $27 million and invested much of it in construction projects in Dubai. His associate Rashid Abu Shabak, former chief of the Palestinian Security Services, had smuggled another $25 million. Palestinian Finance Minister Salam Fayyad’s office reported that of some $60 million in U.S. aid that had been deposited in a bank account for Fatah’s exclusive benefit, only $7 million was not stolen. Dahlan and Shabak both fled the Gaza Strip prior to Hamas’ takeover of the region and all its U.S.-backed Fatah security compounds in June 2007.

Senator Lugar Asks Clinton To Explain Honduras Policy

I like this. Republicans Senators want answers.

“The complexity of events that led up to the Honduran crisis has given rise to questions regarding U.S. policy,” Senator Richard Lugar, one of the Senate’s most respected voices on foreign policy, wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The United States has refused to recognize the Honduran government led by Roberto Micheletti, which took over the Central American nation after President Manuel Zelaya was ousted by the Honduran military on June 28.

Lugar told Clinton he shared her support for mediation by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias in the month-old dispute over whether Zelaya should be allowed to return to his post.

But he also appealed to the State Department to provide a detailed clarification of U.S. policy to “interested Members” – an apparent reference to several of his fellow Republicans, who charge Washington is trying to reinstate a left-wing government in Honduras.

Because of U.S. support for Zelaya, conservative Republican Senator Jim DeMint has threatened to delay a Senate vote on the nomination of Arturo Valenzuela to be assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs, the senior diplomat in charge of Latin America at the State Department.

“I request that the Department provide interested Members a detailed clarification of the steps that it has taken, and intends to take, in response to the events that transpired in the run-up to and period after the forced removal of President Manuel Zelaya from Honduras,” Lugar wrote to Clinton.

The Senators no doubt want to know why we’re so dead set upon reinstating an anti-American, anti-Democratic, leftist  Chavista instead of supporting the Honduran constitution. Lugar was being kind…the events leading up to this crisis were not too complex to understand. The fact of the matter is, the Obama administration has taken the wrong side. And the reinstatement of an undemocratic dictator would have terrible repercussions for Hondurans.

Washington has cut $16.5 million in aid to Honduras and revoked visas for four members of Micheletti’s administration, but  the would be dictator Zelaya, is still pressuring Obama to do more:

“We will ask the U.S. government to step up the pressure on Micheletti,” Zelaya’s ambassador told Reuters.

UPDATE:

The NYTs reports:

Honduras: Clashes at Protests

Several people were wounded, one shot in the head, and 100 arrested.

Protesters were videotaped carrying long sticks and pick axes. I remember someone tweeting awhile back, about Zelaya supporters with pick axes and I didn’t believe it. I’ve been scouring youtube for video. Found this from today:

Translation of info accompanying video:

THE IMAGES ARE STRONG I  DO NOT ACCEPT THE VIOLENCE WITH WHICH THE POLICE ACT, BUT THESE DEMONSTRATORS DO NOT DO IT PEACEFULLY AND THERE ARE PERSONS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN THAT IN HONDURAS IT FINDS A BLOOD BATH. FROM MY HUMBLE POINT OF VIEW I BELIEVE THAT TO TODAY ON AUGUST 30 WE ARE CLOSE TO A CIVIL WAR IN HONDURAS.

I also came upon this at youtube. It’s a radio interview of a Honduran pro-Democracy activist in the days before Zelaya’s ouster (I won’t say coup). She and her interviewer discuss why Obama, and The Obama State Dept remain silent in the face of Zelaya’s blatant attempt to grab power ala Chavez:

The Top 10 Reasons ObamaCare Is Wrong For America

Via The Heritage Foundation, reprinted in its entirety:

1. Millions Will Lose Their Current Insurance. Period. End of Story: President Obama wants Americans to believe they can keep their insurance if they like, but research from the government, private research firms, and think tanks show this is not the case. Proposed economic incentives, plus a government-run health plan like the one proposed in the House bill, would cause 88.1 million people to see their current employer-sponsored health plan disappear.


2. Your Health Care Coverage Will Probably Change Anyway: Even if you kept your private insurance, eventually most remaining plans—whether employer plans or individual plans—would have to conform to new federal benefit standards. Moreover, the necessary plan “upgrades” will undoubtedly cost you more in premiums.

3. The Umpire Is Also the First Baseman: The main argument for a “public option” is that it would increase competition. However, if the federal government creates a health care plan that it controls and also sets the rules for the private plans, there is little doubt that Washington would put its private sector “competitors” out of business sooner or later.

4. The Fed Picks Your Treatment: President Obama said: “They’re going to have to give up paying for things that don’t make them healthier. … If there’s a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half for the thing that’s going to make you well.” Does that sound like a government that will stay out of your health care decisions.

5. Individual Mandate Means Less Liberty and More Taxes: Although he once opposed the idea, President Obama is now open to the imposition of an individual mandate that would require all Americans to have federally approved health insurance. This unprecedented federal directive not only takes away your individual freedom but could cost you as well. Lawmakers are considering a penalty or tax for those who don’t buy government-approved health plans.

6. Higher Taxes Than Europe Hurt Small Businesses: A proposed surtax on the wealthy will actually hit hundreds of thousands of small business owners who are dealing with a recession. If it is enacted, America’s top earners and job creators will carry a larger overall tax burden than France, Italy, Germany, Japan, etc., with a total average tax rate greater than 52%. Is that the right recipe for jobs and wage growth?

7. Who Makes Medical Decisions? What is the right medical treatment and should bureaucrats determine what Americans can or cannot have? While the House and Senate language is vague, amendments offered in House and Senate committees to block government rationing of care were routinely defeated. Cost or a federal health board could be the deciding factors. President Obama himself admitted this when he said, “Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller,” when asked about an elderly woman who needed a pacemaker.

8. Taxpayer-Funded Abortions? Nineteen Democrats recently asked the President to not sign any bill that doesn’t explicitly exclude “abortion from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan” or any bill that allows a federal health board to “recommend abortion services be included under covered benefits or as part of a benefits package.” Currently, these exclusions do not exist.

9. It’s Not Paid For: The CBO says the current House plan would increase the deficit by $239 billion over 10 years. And that number will likely continue to rise over the long term. Similar entitlement bills in the past, including Medicare, have scored much lower than their actual eventual cost.

10. Rushing It, Not Reading It: We’ve been down this road before—with the failed stimulus package. Back then, we also heard that we were in a crisis and that we needed to pass a 1,000-plus-page bill in a few hours—without reading it—or we would have 8% unemployment. Well, we know what happened. Now, one Congressman has even said it’s pointless to read one of the reform bills without two days and two lawyers to make sense of it. Deception is the only reason to rush through a bill nobody truly understands.

Obama Administration Seen As “Villains” By Hondurans

ibdtoon063009

This oped, by Gloria Leticia Pineda For La Prensa, Honduras, pulls no punches, and names names. Of special interest to me are the bully boy tactics used by Obama’s Ambassador to Honduras, Hugo Llorens. It sounds like par for the course from the Obama administration.

Translated by Halszka Czarnocka

July 24, 2009

The current crisis in Honduras has revealed the best and worst of our society. Let’s begin with the latter. And I don’t here refer to [ousted President] Manuel Zelaya, since history has already judged him and his henchmen who, in the name of the people, squandered the public coffers.

We have several villains who have tried to operate below the radar, which is why I cannot allow myself to let their movements and statements go unnoticed. Let’s begin with the representatives of the U.S. government. Barack Obama, as well as Hillary Clinton and [U.S. Ambassador to Honduras] Hugo Llorens, have, as the gringos would say, “dropped the ball,” or translated into Spanish, “put their foot in it [metido la pata]” in regard to their policy on the institutional crisis in Honduras. I can accept their questioning the way we removed Zelaya from Honduras (although, as we’ve stated in past articles, this was perhaps the only option we had to avoid a social and public security breakdown).

But I cannot abide how, ignoring our legal foundations, they have worked to isolate us within the international community. I consider abusive the efforts of Llorens, who, in clear violation of our Constitution and in complete disregard of our right to self-determination, proceeded to make appointments and visit various business groups in Honduras in order to threaten and get them to desist from their opposition to the return of Zelaya, insinuating all sorts of consequences. I was wrong about Llorens. When he first came to present his credentials and was humiliated by Zelaya, I thought he was a reasonable man. But now I find that his intentions don’t have as a goal the overall interests of our people and relations between two countries which have distinguished themselves by being historically natural allies.

I think Llorens’s diplomatic career will be very much affected by his clumsy handling of this crisis and his lack of forcefulness in curtailing Zelaya’s malicious and continuing pretensions. Today he cut U.S. aid to our nation, but didn’t have the “balls” to denounce the assault on our precarious finances by the previous administration [the Zelaya Administration].

I not sure “balls” translates exactly what the author meant to convey…how about decency? Intellectual honesty? Non partisanship? It’s become clear that Obama favors the anti-Democratic side in this conflict. But this is worse than just taking sides against a traditional ally.

Fausta went so far as to ask, Is Obama doing Zelaya’s bidding?

Zelaya’s still demanding that the Obama administration freeze bank accounts belonging to the people who removed him from power (my translation: if you use this please credit me and link to this post, but if you can read Spanish please read the entire article in order to catch the full fetid aroma of Zelaya’s words):

From Nicaragua, where he remains and is organizing a “resistance” movement for returning to Honduras, Zelaya acknowledged to the media that Pres. Obama’s decision to revoke the visas of four Micheletti administration’s officials is “a signal that it does not accept the coup d’etat.” However, he demanded that Obama “continue to squeeze them by seizing their [US bank] accounts, their money”.

Heck, it worked with the visas.’

MORE:

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, another villain in this whole mess is showing his true colors:

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias said Wednesday that foreign governments should keep on applying sanctions against Honduras’ interim government even as its leaders expressed interest in further negotiations on ending the standoff.

Isn’t that special? As we ease sanctions against a longtime enemy, the anti-American, Communist , Cuba, we apply them to one of the traditionally pro-American counties in the region.

Just brilliant.

Hows this for resolve?

… the interim government is ready to hold out for five months, until a Nov. 29 election that is to replace Zelaya, whose term ends Jan. 27. He expressed confidence that other nations would recognize the results of the vote.

“The people are united and are willing to weather the five months until the elections,” Lopez said.

The interim government insists it cannot accept any deal that would restore Zelaya to the presidency because that would violate a Supreme Court ruling ordering his arrest and a congressional vote removing him from office. Interim leaders have vowed to arrest Zelaya if he sets foot in his homeland on four charges of violating the constitution.

Video:Bernard Goldberg Asks Why Obama Doesn’t Release His Birth Certificate

Bernard Goldberg, appearing on The O’Reilly Factor,  asked the same question that Lou Dobbs asked on CNN; the one that caught him so much flack, why doesn’t Obama just release the darn thing, and put this matter to rest? I’m glad that more and more people are asking this question. It’s a reasonable one, and we shouldn’t be afraid to ask it.

There are differing theories as to why he Obama won’t do it, and none are flattering to him:

Goldberg gets extra credit for bringing up the college records.

I’ve been saying the same thing, what’s the deal?…what’s he hiding?…where’s the transparency? And if he’s only keeping the birth certificate under wraps so he can say naaa naaa naaa to some conservatives who believe he was born in Kenya, shame on him. Many people are concerned about this, including members of the military. Watch this video of a town hall meeting in Delaware which erupted in enthusiastic approval when someone brought up the issue. The Commander in Chief  should put a stop to it, and forget about the politics for just one second, but we can’t ever expect that much from Obama, can we?

Oh man!….

I’m not even through reading this, but it’s so good, I have to share: Andrew McCarthy weighs in at NRO: Suborned in the U.S.A. Read it!

Okay, I’m done, and HUBBA HUBBA! My feelings exactly! Short version: Obama is a demonstrable liar, there are still outstanding questions about his citizenship, and the media is not doing its job to get to the bottom of it.  I am so glad people of his stature are not afraid to speak up when there are so many people, even on the conservative side, who mock and ridicule the “birther” stuff.

UPDATE:

Sir Gregory at Teh Resistance Blog makes some good points, too:

10 Reasons not to get mixed up with the Birther Movement

I agree with some of that, but not the “Birthers are playing into the hands of the left” part. I think the left is running scared on this, and the more scared they are, the more they lash out, as we’ve seen with Sarah Palin. I think the people on the right who are are lashing out are doing it out of fear, too. Fear that this stuff damages all of our reputations, collectively.

But I see nothing wrong with demanding the transparancy Obama promised to deliver as President. Why does Obama continue to resist releasing the COLB? What’s on that long form that he doesn’t want seen?

The world lost one of it’s true heroes a couple of weeks ago. Darrell “Shifty” Powers passed away on June 17 of cancer. “Shifty” was part of the famed E Co/2/506 of the 101st Airborne Division. Easy Company. The Band Of Brothers.

“I loved everything about my daddy,” said Margo Johnson, daughter of SSgt. Powers. “He never bragged about what he did in the war. And for a lot of years, he never even talked much about what he did – unless someone asked him about it. But he truly was a hero to me. Just like he’d been to the people who know him as a soldier in a [mini-series].”

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
