'Obama's America' draws conclusions without any facts

“2016: Obama’s America”

Obama’s America Foundation

1 hour, 27 minutes

 

Dinesh D’Souza is a hack. I know, there are some out there that are saying, “What? No! He’s a muckraking crusader! He’s the Right’s answer to Michael Moore!”

Of course, there are more of you saying, “Who the heck is Dinesh D’Souza?” — which is as it should be. The director and writer of the recent Barack Obama “documentary,” “2016: Obama’s America” deserves nothing less than to return to the doldrums of obscurity from whence he came.

Full disclosure: I am a Barack Obama fan. I voted for him once and will likely do so again. I am perfectly primed to disagree with a negative exposé on the President. My criticism, however, has nothing to do with my politics. On the merits of the movie alone, as a piece of documentary filmmaking, “2016: Obama’s America” is just plain terrible.

D’Souza clearly thinks of himself as a counterpart to Michael Moore. Not only is he the writer/director, but he’s also the star. The film starts out with some background. D’Souza, like Obama, is the child of immigrants and of similar age and comparable background. He shows this, I imagine, to establish his bona fides, that our Dinesh is qualified to dissect Barack Obama because, but for the vagaries of fate, he could have been Barack Obama. D’Souza then proceeds to outline Obama’s background, crushing the birther movement in one fell swoop by announcing “Barack Obama Jr. was born on August 4, 1961, in a hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.” Take that, Donald Trump!

The first third of the film is actually pretty interesting, if still pretty hacky. D’Souza manages to explain who Obama’s father was, what his relationship to Obama’s mother was, and how and why he was in the country. He establishes clearly how young Obama came to idolize an absent father, over the less-than-stable father that the boy’s mother had chosen as a replacement. D’Souza then goes on to show, how crushed an older Obama was to learn that the untarnished father he believed he had was actually just a man after all, and a fairly flawed man at that. D’Souza decently illustrates a whole swath of Barack Obama’s childhood, mostly because he’s quoting directly from Barack Obama’s own memoirs, “Dreams From My Father.”

The first part of the movie is tolerable, even interesting at times, if annoyingly over-produced. It is in the middle part of the movie that things really start to go awry. It is here that D’Souza’s analysis turns from an exploration for truth into a high-school understanding of pop psychology. Because Barack Obama at one time put his absent father on a pedestal, he must secretly wish to somehow become that father, or at least fulfill the potential that father possessed.

What potential is that? To bring down colonial empires. To destroy America’s power in the world, and to spread Socialism, maybe even ... gasp! ... Communism! Why, exactly, are we to believe that this is Obama’s plan? Your guess is as good as mine. Without a shred of actual evidence, D’Souza proceeds to travel the globe, meeting with people who have either tenuous connections to the president, or with fringe people who simply disagree with his policies. Interviews consist of leading questions, half-answers, and even outright disagreement, to which D’Souza nods knowingly, as though pieces of a puzzle are all falling into place.

The problem is that there are no pieces — there doesn’t even appear to be a puzzle. At one point, D’Souza interviews a man in Africa who may well have been one of Barack Obama Sr.’s best friends. The old man never knew the president, but he obviously knew and loved the father, a man who, it’s been established, was somewhat of a radical. The old man also clearly loves Obama, which is not a surprise considering our president is one of the most popular people in the world. When asked if he thought Barack Sr. would be proud of Barack Jr., the old man nods enthusiastically. D’Souza nods knowingly.

This is the type of damning evidence the director has to offer. Dinesh D’Souza has taken a few well-known facts about Obama — that he grew up without his father and spent much of his childhood abroad — added some emotional elements from the President’s own words, and has drawn wildly illogical conclusions. I can do that, too. Let’s see ... Obama is a lawyer. He lived in Chicago. He smokes. Conclusion: Barack Obama is a secret member of the mafia. The health care law will inevitably lead to greater control of public health, concluding with the complete illegalization of tobacco. At which point, Barack Obama will stand to make millions, maybe even billions, as a cigarette bootlegger.

Or, if that doesn’t make sense, how about this: Obama is rich. He grew up without his father. He fought for justice (lawyer again.) Obviously, he’s a super-hero. He may even actually be Batman, but I can’t be 100 percent sure.

By the end of the film things have completely gone off the rails. D’Souza, erroneously believing he’s got us on the hook with his fanciful theories, spins a nightmare scenario of Obama’s next term. Choking debt leads to a destroyed economy. Muslim-friendly foreign policy leads to the crushing of Israel by the United States of Islam. The film ends with a frightened little boy reading a history book that list the American Era as ending in 2016.

Wow. I can imagine what some of my friends on the Right are probably thinking at this point. Michael Moore does the same thing and gets nominated for an Oscar. No, he doesn’t. Yes, Moore is biased. And yes, he spins the facts to make the conclusions come out the way he wants. But he starts with facts. Meticulously researched facts. Massaged conclusions, yes, but built on real data, not vague psychological speculation. And as a director, Moore knows what he’s doing. He builds tension, uses graphics judiciously, and manages to let people swing using their own words. Sometimes he goes too far — ambushing an obviously diminished Charleton Heston at his home to harass him about the NRA was wrong, but usually he’s effective.

Purely as a filmmaker, D’Souza doesn’t know when to quit. His graphics are non-stop and overwhelming. Each interview seems as if it were conducted using multiple cameras from a dozen angles. At three separate points D’Souza actually “phones in” the interview, the result being we see both sides of the conversation — the interviewee on one phone and D’Souza on another, nodding knowingly. Why?

“2016: Obama’s America” is the worst kind of political propaganda because it preys on people who are disposed to be fearful about the direction of our country. And it does so without any solid basis. D’Souza hopes that he can fire up the faithful with slick graphics and convoluted theories, and is betting on the fact that they will overlook the obvious lack of any real research. He trots out worn-out old bogeymen like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and that Weather Underground guy, but he never actually uncovers anything of substance about the president himself. This makes “2016” about as hollow as D’Souza himself.

Grade: D-

“2016: Obama’s America” is rated PG for some scary music and frightening folderol.

Obama loves Muhammad more?

I hear that Obama says it's wrong for anyone to slander Mohammad and the wonderful religion of Islam on Yom Kippur, the very same day Irans Islamic President calls for the distruction of Israel.
Could someone please help me here with America's chosen one Prez. Obama and his words and praise for allah and mohammad and condemnation to all that refute Islam as i don't understand how a supposed christian can do this. OPPS! I forgot the supposed christian part which Obama claims to be.
Obama claims to be a christian, yet he does everything Jesus said was wrong by giving false religions any justification or recognition or legitamacy, so if we compare what Jesus Christ said and what Obama said we have one of them thats wrong don't we?
Mohammad says that Jesus will return someday and repent for his sins and claims of being the only way to God and also confess that his death was a fake. Jesus is also going to force all Christians & Jews to accept Islam or be killed for rejecting Islam.
So please tell me how a True Christian, Believer and follower of Jesus' claims that accepting his death and shead blood as being the only way to God, yet Obama says that Islam is the True and peaceful way, and he is supposedly a christian?
It looks like someone has been brain washed into Islam and now wants to spread that brain washing to ALL Americans, even to all the global citizens. No wonder Rev. Wright and Louis Farrahkan say Obama is the messiah and will lead us into the New Era for allah and that the Youth will follow.
You can't have it both ways Mr President when the two religions differ in EVERY RESPECT, either God is true or a lier, or Muhammad is true or a lier.

It's OK for peaceful Islamic muslims to kill Jews and Christians and even other Muslims any time they wish to do so, yet Jews or Christians or other Muslims that disagree can't even say so or show HISTORIC FACTS of who Mohammad really is and what his self made religion really is about either?

Sounds like OUR President has crossed over that line of indorsing a certain religion and it's not Christianity either that he has chosen, but Islam.
So we can really see what Obama's 2016 would look like if he gets his way and makes Islam Americas New Fundamentals and Hope to believe in for America and the world, can't we?

Bad news & wrong Eternal choices being made because in reality Yahweh and Yeshau are Greater.

You should be so embarrassed to claim yourself a Veteran for Obama! What a shame!

Any soldier who votes for a leader that defies the Constitution of the United States should have there head examined.

What a disappointment. Let me guess, you were "Other than Honorably Discharged" and was a below the rating of satisfactory in the Service...? Pretty Close? I thought so...

Democrate Billionairs get free pass

Yes it is true the Dem Billionairs club does and will get free passes as it does seem, but make no mistake folks the Repubs Billionairs will also get those same free passes, maybe not to the same degree but none the less they will all get passes.
The Global economic system is about to become a two part system, the Haves and the Havenots, but we will all be under the same economic Global system and major suffering will be dished out on all the Havenots to reduce our numbers for the Haves desired UTOPIA. Revelation 6:5-6 says that the Havenots will pay a days wages for enough wheat or barley for one days food for one persons work day. The Haves will still be enjoying the wine and the oil, or rich mens food with no labor or concerns what so ever. Everyone belongs to the Glpbal union or they can't even work for that quart of wheat for food for one day if they are not UNION MEMBERS.
Obama is gonna get his desired ONE WORLD ORDER and thats apromise as Gods word says so, so get ready to join the UNION OF 1, or else.
Really just how much control over your economics do you have if they shut down the web and all electronic transactions? NADA, THATS HOW MUCH, NADA!

Build your treasures in Heaven where men can't steal them.

Clarion scraps comments about the Curve

I could read the writing on the Wall about the supposed review from Jennes and his discust towards Clint Eastwood leading to the article being shut down to comments.
There you have it folks the Clarion shows it's hand again towards Free speach being OK for some, but not for others.
Very sad, but thats the Reality of supposed equal rights and Free speach when Religious Politics are drawn into any conversation. I'm just glad the Clarion did not decide to hunt us down and dispose of us nonbelievers in their false messiah and his hopeless hope and change thingy to believe in, like some other Free speach peaceful people do daily world wide.
I only hope we make it till 2016, in fact i only hope we make it till November 2012 and can cast our votes which will make absolutely no differance, as by the time we vote it will be set in stone and history with a clear path layed out for all concerning OUR Nations future and our soverign rights and Freedoms hanging in the Balance.

This movie about BHO also left out the report on Justice Czar

Do you know the difference between a Socialist and a Capitalist?
The Socialist hasn’t confiscated all of your guns yet.

This movie about BHO also left out the report on his Justice Czar Eric Holder and his ‘Black Students’ Organization’ armed takeover of an ROTC camp, and the Colombia Deans office in 1970, when he was a freshman at Columbia Univ. How did the movie miss that one??

Speaking of justice czar

Did you see where Obama has told all business' providing Nation security defence materials to not warn employees about their impending layoffs due to the massive cuts in National defence allocations until after the elections?
Obama told them that the labor dept will cover legal costs for all law suits over the breaking of OUR Nations laws demanding proper notice of work reductions and lawoffs.
Oh and did you see where Obama is going to allow the UN to have control of OUR internet for purposes of regulating Free speach?
YEP! Thats some of you Obama worshipers messiah at work again stripping ALL HOPE for his fundamental change and new hope.
I only HOPE we can make it till 2016 as we hang over the cliff by a small Sycamore trees roots, while all of society crashes around us do to OUR fall as the economic and military powerhouse of the world.

Please vote today as it may be OUR last Free election due to the fact that we might not make it till November as we see everything crashing around us at every turn and the continual lies from Obama worshipers saying 'It's OK, your just not reading the SIGNS correctly and must continue on in this GR8 American Hoax designed to crash America and all the world to the point that people will call out to the Devil for deliverance, and he will provide that supposed deliverance for about 3 1/2 yrs before ALL HELL breaks out and 2/3rds of all life will be destroyed for his UTOPIA without God, mans and satans Dream Act.

May Yahweh God and his son Yeshua forgive us for OUR National Bad choices to exclude him from our lives for false gods and hopeless hope in anything they say or do.

Holder and Columbia U.

Ikpomn912, although it is plausible Holder took part in such an event, I have failed to find any credible sources to support this claim. If you would be generous enough to supply a CREDIBLE source I would appreciate it. Thus far, I have only found this story on:

One of these sites that had a supporting link listed as a source(http://web.archive.org/web/20100926031018/http://www.columbiabso.org/?page_id=118)
Left this message: "Bummer, this link is no longer available."

Again, I am simply looking for a credible source which can verify your post.

Why didn’t Eric Holder have these reports SCRUBBED CLEAN?

Why didn’t Eric Holder have these reports SCRUBBED CLEAN?
Because he’s PROUD of it, and He’s BRAGGING about it.

Hell, it’s only you and me and Crazy Cat that will read this….

“”It is an honor to be back at Columbia Law School – although it’s something of a miracle that I ever got into this esteemed school in the first place. During my undergraduate years here in Morningside Heights, I was one of many students on this campus who felt strongly about, well, nearly everything. It was the 70’s. During my senior year, several of us took one of our concerns – that black students needed a designated space to gather on campus – to the Dean’s office. This being Columbia, we proceeded to {*here’s the illegal part*} occupy that office.
The target of that sit-in was Dean Henry Coleman. He heard us out, led us toward common ground and, eventually, to a compromise. But I’m not sure he was very happy about, shall we say, {**again the illegal part**} his forced captivity. In the ultimate display of chutzpah, however, I still asked Dean Coleman to recommend me for admission into this law school . And, lo and behold, he agreed. Only at Columbia, my friends. That’s one of many reasons why I love this university. “”

Attorney General Eric Holder 2010
The United States Department of Justice Government site

""Attorney General Eric Holder entered the Justice Department on a mission to reinvent it.
It wasn't until Holder arrived at Columbia University in the fall of 1969 that he connected with four other African-American students who could relate to his somewhat prismatic experience. On weeknights, they studied until the small hours; on weekends, they delved into the Harlem scene and immersed themselves in the activism of the times—marching in the streets for housing and education, coaching a youth football team, mentoring kids in the Manhattan Valley projects. "We took over the ROTC lounge in Hartley Hall and created the Malcolm X Lounge," says Steve Sims, laughing. Today the imprint of those years is unmistakable in Holder's thinking. ""

Ah yes ... the cry of conspiracy.

The cry of "conspiracy" always rings out when the answer you are looking for doesn't materialize.
Slanderous campaigns are nothing new. The campaign of 1800 had one candidate slander another ... and it has continued with few exceptions ever since.
Again, I am not implying your claim is false, however, it is as of now unfounded with credible sources. Keep looking and in the future, it is best to support your posts with credible information. After all, many times it is your own credibility that suffers.
Please let me know if you find anything as I do believe it to be relevent to a presidential election.
FLT, please if you found a credible source would you kindly post it. I have as of yet been unable to locate one.Thanks in advance. SVP

Govt. to pay legal fines for law brkrs

Did ya see where Obama promised to pay legal fees to all Defence contractors if they hold off on giving layoff notices to employees until after the election?
The idea is that if notice of 60 days notice of coming layoffs due to the defence Budgets cuts coming January 2, 2013 that the people in these swing states will not vote for Obama so management is being told to hold off notice till after the election and break the law by doing so.
Incouraged to break the laws Obama is demanding Defence contractors of over 100 employees to NOT give proper 60 days notice of coming layoffs.
Obama is promising that the LABOR DEPT will pay all costs from law suits against employeers who comply with his desire to BREAK THE LAW is just another very clear view of how this chosen one looks at Americas Freedoms.
Obama truly believes that he can do as he wishes with no consiquences for breaking the laws ment to protect workers from people like him.
Union protection use to be one of the talking points for being a Union member, they protected you from Unscrupulous employeers, but Govt. does not seem to matter in this case.
This reveals why Obama said that if Congress did not act that he would Bypass them and create the things needed to go Foreward for his Dreamed Utopia after America's fall.

Then there is the blatant lies about the 911 killing of 4 Americans in Libya that it was not planned on 911, but was just a meer reaction to a movie that had been out for months already with no displeasure or protests against it till 911, REALLY?
Personally i am amazed and offended at the degree to which Obama thinks some of us Americans are so stupid about his true nature and plans that we can't see the forest for the trees when REALITY IS SCREAMING THE OPPISITE.

Seriously Folks I am fearful for Obama's America of 2012 and if we will even make it to 2013 as a Free Soverign Nation, so forget about 2016.

UNENDING GIFT OF JOEY BIDEN

Thank you Lord for Joey Biden and his truthfulness of saying whats very apparent and thats that the "LAST 4 YEARS THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS BEEN BURIED."
The boy is a miricle worker when it comes to word control and counting is he not? He is also forgetful of reality that the messiah and he were responsible for the last 4 years. OOPS!
I would also like to thank his messiahship, Obama, for his gift of Joey Biden that just keeps on giving every time Biden speaks.

Allow me to use Bidens counting ability and mastering of words to say what i believe is the case in just 3 words.

"YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID."

Thanks Joey for showing us exactly what Obama has planned for ALL of America, a BURIAL.

You will observe, once again, that my printed quote references are accurate. The conspiracy theory accusations are for the second-rate genus that don’t, won’t and can’t read and research for their own intellectual satisfaction. Reading these two articles will not help you decide who you will vote for. It is an exercise in futility.

Colombia U. has scrubbed everything related to these people to cover all of the exacting precise details of their terms in the university. It is not the hair-brained accusations that harm this presidency, it is the stone-cold hard visceral facts.

I have no fascination in pleading with progressives, or independents to come over to ‘my’ side. Nor to educate them, nor to enlighten them, nor to spend my valuable time warning them. My goals meet my own ends. Life Liberty & the pursuit of Happiness.

Comments Closed on Review of Trouble With Curve

Bring the comments back for the Touble with Curve. I like the comments! They are way more fun to read than the actual bias movie reviews! The Clarion should not Censor comments. Since when are there rules for comments to be "on topic?" I am more than sure that comments would have been kept if they were praising Obama and Chris Jenness's tingle up his leg at the mere mention of "Obama." Now to address the subject of "Off topic:" Jenness mentioning Obama in his review of The Trouble With Curve was very much off topic. Pherhaps Jenness can movie his column into the "Opion" section of the Clarion. My point is- if Jenness wishes to use his column in hopes to glorify his political opinon- let the people comment freely on and share their opinon!

Interpretation Correction

"NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM" means"NEW ORDER OF THE AGES".Not NEW WORLD ORDER as some believe.Yes! it was a new order that started this country.What we see on the dollar was designed in 1782,but was first used in 1935. I am amazed at how some folks will not believe the truth.

Interpretation correction, correction.

SECLORUM means SECULAR/WORLDLY, AS WELL AS NEW AGES.
I too am amazed at how some folks will not BELIEVE THE TRUTH, especially since Gods word for Thousands of years has told us of this New Secular Worldly Age that will come and be ruled by Satan and his followers as the gods of this present worlds systems. Not only does Gods word warn us of these coming ancient gods, but over 89 differant ancient societies like the Mayans & American Indians have also warned us they would return.
Their return has been foretold with 2012 being the date given for their return to start a NEW AGE, ERA OF TIME OR WORLD ORDER. The steps on the Pyrimid with those words of new world order have a cycle, period of time assigned to each step which adds up to 236 years or the exact amount of time America will have been a Nation since 1776 & 2012.
Many symbols on OUR MOney and the design of OUR nations governmental buildings all point to a New Hope & Change to Believe in with out Yahweh, God being allowed any part of it's rule of mankind.

BREAKING NEWS FLASH
God knew it would come and is allowing it to come and will judge all that want it to come so they can have it their way and Satans way, rather than Gods way.
God has warned it was coming and made provisions to survive and escape the wrath to come poured out by Satan on humanity due to his hate for all of creation.
Gods wrath will also be poured out on all of Satans followers and those that desired this New World order ment to exclude God.

We all have to pay for our choices individually unless we have accepted Gods Paid in Full Get Out Of Hell Free Card found only when one Believes in Jesus atonement at calvary.

So, WHAT IS TRUTH, AND WHO IS BEING TRUTHFUL?
WE must all decide and hopefully do massive research prior to our vote of what we Believe is True or False for eternity, not only temporal.
Troubles are coming and will arrive right on time and the New World Leader, Global Order are the signals, SIGNS, of the End of an Age and start of a New Age. But that New Age will be ruled by Gods chosen Ruler, Yeshua, not Satan or mankinds chosen false god, gods.

Thanks for the comments Raoulduke

Localmrs your Politically Correct Censured America. observe

LOCALMRS the feelings of the writer of the movie review propaganda were bruised, so the comments were removed. It’s amusing that someone has gone down the list of comments on the opinion piece of ‘Varied Impression of the Movie’ and put 4 thumbs-down on every one of them. You’ll see that it is out of place, by looking at thumbs up/down on other articles. Really what is the point of the numbers by the names, & the thumbs are pointless at best

You can beat a conservative with a hammer until he is a bloody ‘flat cat.’

You are not allowed to even tickle a socialist with the feather of disagreement to raise his 'hackles'.

So whats with the points by each of our posts?
Does the1st one to a thousand Points get a free 8x12 pic of Bo & Mo holding Bo's New American flag with his Obama logo replacing the Stars and streaking strips replacing the Straight ones, as they are tossing the Old Flag in the fireplace singing 'We're so proud of America now?"
'Theres Just Something About The Curve' of those Streaky stripes thats creepy. Maybe it reminds me of the Bloody hand streaks on that building in Libya with Ambassador Stevens Blood used to make them and knowing thats the desire of ALL peace loving worshipers towards anyone that disagrees or gets in the way.

And then the infantile thumbs up or down thingy, like i us that?
I ASS U ME it's just another one of those Freedom things for sneaky voting against others who are exercising their Freedom of Speach which is deemed un-DemocraticAmericana now.

Still hoping we make it till November as a Free People.

Raoulduke your Ok, But i'm not?

There you have it folks Raoulduke has once again contradicted his own assesment of opinions and determined that his are correct and ok, but, mine are not correct or ok, resulting in a lack of being able to conduct any true dialogue and it's people like me thats the problem.
Raoulduke, yes we do have the Freedom to choose Religion FOR NOW. Thats my point smart one, FOR NOW, we have that Freedom to choose as you stated.
OBama and Obedient Muslims to the Qu'ran/Koran don't care about OUR RIGHTS TO CHOOSE, THEIR GOAL IS TO FORCE CHANGE EVERYONES BELIEF SYSTEM FOR THEIR FALSE ONE, AND THEIR FALSE ONE ALONE.
As for me wanting to start my OWN church, not true, as i already belong to a Church, and that Church is organized by Jesus Christ on his words of Truth and Hope leading to Fundamental Change to Believe in for Eternity.
Your church founder Obama with his words of a New Hope and Fundamental Change to Believe in is based on hope in mankind's abilities alone not on any promises of God.
Do you know what the word CHANGE means? CHANGE means to Repent and go a differant direction from the previous direction one was going in. So if OUR Nation was once going in the direction the True God laid out, and we as a Nation CHANGE, REPENT, and go in another direction or Fundamentals which will lead to a New Hope to Believe in, WHAT HAPPENS? Very simple children can get this question and answer it with complete understand that they know what their saying is true simply by saying 'Change means to go another WAY.
You and your leaders Hopeless church will fail and fall as all it's followers also will for their faith in a false hope and change ment to cause people to turn away from the Only Hope found in Gods provisional gift, Jesus Christ and go a NEW DIRECTION.

Boy are we doing that thing of GOING A DIFFERANT DIRECTION, and at WARP SPEED.
My hope is built on Jesus Christ alone, not on anything i can do or anything Obama or others can do, it's all about Gods way, or mans way. Guess who is gonna get their way? And i hope you use your Freedom to choose correctly, as you only get One Vote.

Federal Attorney General of the United States admits to acting

Sam Von Pufendorf - - pretty quiet about the FAST & FURIOUS THUG. When the Federal Attorney General of the United States admits to acting illegally during his adult College years, it’s a confession of wrongdoing.
He was a desperado then, and he’s a despot now. Which also explains why he did not prosecute the Black Panters for their Voting Rights criminal acts.

Fast and Furious

FLT, not being silent, but I have been traveling and thus the Clarion blogs have not been at the top of my list of things to do.
Concerning fast and furious, it will undoubtedly be the end of Holder's tenure whether or not he is proven guilty of any wrong doing. He ultimately is responsible for what happens within the nations top law office and therefore should be held accountable. The president appointed him and a Democratic congress confirmed him. Both should be held accountable as well.

Thank you for providing the sources as they were very informational. Although I don't agree with his actions, I find it highly unlikely that they were "armed" in a legal sense as that would have evoked some sort of law enforcement and trumped campus security.

I am not and have not defended the AG in any form. I have simply asked for credible sources. If you consider Gentleman's Quarterly (GQ) a credible source... good for you! That story also offered some insight into some good attributes of the AG. However, the other link from the justice department is credible and is, as far as I can tell, accurate.
My question is this; if the AG admits to his discretion, why would it be necessary to expunge the Columbia University record?

Again, thank you for using these blogs for an exchange of information and opinion. A civil exchange may help to sway the uninformed or mis-informed voter.

Oprah, Bill Mahr, Jon Stewart, Leno, Letterman, Colbert

Oprah, Bill Mahr, Jon Stewart, Leno, Letterman, Colbert
How are celebrities & politicians bragging, blabbing and spilling their guts on these shows different than talking to GQ magazine?

Since the current administration shuns regular press conferences, and is sheltered and isolated by a ‘puppet’ press – these off-the-mainstream media excursions may be the only way to get to know our representational government agents.

Their history, past actions, character, values, and their morals are going to have to be drawn from their microscopic ‘friedian’ tells. Like pulling water out of a deep well. The GQ article was not a political promotion, it was a ‘Person’ piece. It counts as a valid source of information.

WTF When someone goes on Oprah and brags about drowning puppies at summer camp with his choom gang…..smart people will listen to that little gem. They won’t wait to be told what to think. They’ll hold to their own council.

Answer: only to cover Barry Soetero.

USA going down, But Big Bird needs help

I watched many differant wannabe news channels and the primary concern was for Big Birds safety from Romney cuts. All this concern for BG with none for America under Bo's massive spending.
The funny thing is Romney wants to reduce spending for more important things than Big Bird on TV.
The other funny thing is that when China reposses our TV's due to massive debt, we ain't gonna be able to watch BG anyhow.
His messiahness Obama truly Believes that there is nothing to worry about from Willard Romney and his not having his telepromptor telling him what to say last night was a total disaster and revealed that he really has not got a clue on what is true or Americans want.
Obama could not stay on point on any question last night and relied totally on stories about individuals to press his points, rather than AMERICA AS A WHOLE.
I still say if we make it till November, EVERYTHINGS NOT GONNA BE OK from what Obama has already done to sink OUR ship.

Occidental, Colombia, Harvard Law School straight F student FFF

Occidental, Colombia, Harvard Law School hush hush

Obama’s college records are not “sealed” by a court order, as people may believe. He could open them today.

It would be illegal under federal law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) for Occidental, Columbia or Harvard Law School to give any former student’s records to reporters or members of the public without that person’s specific, written permission. Obama hasn’t released them.

Bush didn’t release his either, however THEY WERE LEAKED by his opponents. Why doesn’t someone give up the ghosts and leak OBAMAS.

THE MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY.

(except for the sneaky secret squirrel parts. I thought he was the smartest man on the planet, he should show off grades!)

Isaiah 9:10 Americas downfall

As ancient Israel did so America has done.
Isaiah 9:10 shows Israels We can do it attitude then when God sent warning of coming judgments for removing God from their lives.
Isaiah 9:10 shows Americas identical Vows by OUR Leaders quotes of this verse in direct defiance against God warnings to return to him or else America would also fall like Israel did.
Sept. 2001 First warning Twin Towers.
Sept. 2008 Second warning 777 Stock crash
Thats two harbingers 7 years apart against Americas Financial dominance as well as World power.
Sept. 2015 Third warning possibly as it will be another 7 years and another election about to happen if we can make it that far under Gods warnings of judgments against us for removing him from our lives at every turn and boasting that WE WILL REBUILD AND REPLANT AND BE STRONGER THAN BEFORE.

Gods grace and mercy as well as his long suffering patience does have an end time which will result in complete punishment for our sins.
We as parents or employeers exercise the very same patience with our children and employees and after a period of trying to get differant results the end of our patience also comes and down comes the judgment, punishment against those that continuosly refuse to change direction.

When Obama makes the claims of a new hope and fundamental change to believe in he is in fact slapping Gods face saying we will go a differant direction from what we use to go in serving God and his moral compass as OUR Guide, by now going OUR WAY and deciding OUR own moral compass.
No matter who wins the election Obama has caused America to go to the brink of total collapse and Bush helped him get-r-done.
Romney cannot reverse the course which America has Vowed to go in.
The only thing that will change our course, that is if it's not to late to do so is for Gods People who are called by his name shall humble themselves and pray, then God will hear from heaven and forgive them. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Gods people are just as much to blame for the course America is heading in as Bush, Obama or any other American leader that does not know God, although they do know about God, they don't know him as he requires mankind to do, as LORD.
Romney or Obama makes no differance to me who wins or to God either, other than for them to do his will for things to come.
God is my only hope and God will have it his way, not mans.
My job is to try and warn people as a Watchman looking for Signs of immenant judgments at the End of the Age of time we are now entering into according to many ancient societies as well as Jesus who warned us in Matthew 24; at the request of his followers for Signs of his coming at the End of the Age. I only want to see you there in Gods Kingdom come thats why i continually Watch and warn of the Signs all around us that we are running out of time due to Gods running out of patience. 2 Peter 3:8-9

"If the Pres can sit with the fat alley cats on the 'VIEW',
I'm free to read about his Atty. Gen. Holder on 'GQ'."

I never said you weren't "free" to read it. I am simply saying you should obtain the most credible information possible. In the above stated case, that would be the justice department. "GQ (originally Gentlemen's Quarterly) is an American monthly men's magazine focusing on fashion, style, and culture for men, through articles on food, movies, fitness, sex, music, travel, sports, technology, and books." Not exactly a political forum we are speaking of.

As for "The View." I'm not a fan and would probably not use it as a credible reference either as the cast is firmly liberal and therefore the line of questioning would most likely focus on subjects that would benefit the subject.

Finally, I ask again why Columbia's records would need to be scrubbed clean when Holder himself brought forth the story in a commencement speech over two years ago?
