Here are a few for today.
Psychiatrist: Obama corrupting America with socialism.
Only a month into Barack Obama’s presidency, an acclaimed psychiatrist is warning that Americans are being slowly corrupted by socialism as Obama’s policies intrude into their economic, social and political lives – a tactic he believes will secure future votes for the Democratic Party.
“We have a desperate population, and it’s feeling even more desperate than usual,” Dr. Lyle Rossiter told WND. “People are really quite frightened. They’re looking for magic, and they think they are going to find it in this man.”
Rossiter is a forensic psychiatrist and author of “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” In his book, he explains how the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and the Democratic Party can only be understood as a psychological disorder. He examines how modern liberal collectivism undermines the legal and moral foundations of ordered liberty.

Radio chip coming soon to your driver’s license?
Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.
The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver’s licenses, or “enhanced driver’s licenses.”
“Enhanced driver’s licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it’s less elaborate than REAL ID,” Napolitano said in a Washington Times report.
Carlos the Jackal to Obama: Help me find terrorist pal.
Emboldened by President Barack Obama’s announcement he will close the Guantanamo facility housing suspected terrorists, one of the most notorious leftist terrorists of the 1970s and 1980s has written the president, asking him for help in finding a “former comrade-in-arms” missing for 14 years, and closing his letter with “Allahu akbar! … yours in revolution.”
Ilich Ramirez Sanchez – aka Carlos the Jackal – penned his letter to Obama from the Paris prison where he is serving a life sentence for the murder of two French agents and an informer, and for a series of deadly bomb attacks in Paris and on French trains, the Glasgow Sunday Herald reported today.
“Mister President, Your decision to close secret CIA jails, honors you,” Carlos began before raising the issue of Bruno Breguet, a Swiss national who served as his right-hand man.
Eligibility lawyer argues for president’s deportation.
A Democrat who served as deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania and now is leading a number of lawsuits over the eligibility of President Barack Obama to occupy the Oval Office has told radio talk show host Michael Savage that not only is Obama not eligible to be president, he’s probably an illegal alien and should be deported.
“If it’s true what I am alleging, that he’s an illegal alien … [Obama] should be arrested and deported,” Berg said this week during an interview on the “Savage Nation” program.
Buffett: ‘I Did Some Dumb Things’ in 2008
Warren E. Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway investment fund and holding company and possibly still the world’s richest person, released his annual shareholders letter moments ago, in which he says, “during 2008 I did some dumb things in investments.”
“I made at least one major mistake of commission and several lesser ones that also hurt,” he said. “Furthermore, I made some errors of omission, sucking my thumb when new facts came in that should have caused me to re-examine my thinking and promptly take action.”
That “major mistake,” Buffett writes, was the purchase of millions of shares of ConocoPhillips oil company when oil prices were near their peak.
3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana’s Bakken Formation—25 Times More Than 1995 Estimate—
Reston, VA – North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.
A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency’s 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.
Technically recoverable oil resources are those producible using currently available technology and industry practices. USGS is the only provider of publicly available estimates of undiscovered technically recoverable oil and gas resources.
New geologic models applied to the Bakken Formation, advances in drilling and production technologies, and recent oil discoveries have resulted in these substantially larger technically recoverable oil volumes. About 105 million barrels of oil were produced from the Bakken Formation by the end of 2007.
Sources have forwarded this Report news of a serious gaffe by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. It proves she apparently has no business chairing the Senate Intelligence Committee. This serious embarrassment was virtually smothered by American media outlets.
The CIA and The Pentagon refused to comment on this matter when questioned by The UK’s Daily Telegraph. In a breathtaking example of incompetence Feinstein publicly revealed a military secret during an open Committee hearing last Friday.
In what must have been a “senior moment” the new Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, confirmed that American unmanned drone spy planes are being launched from tribal areas in Pakistan.
At one point while in a cross examination of Dennis Blair Director of National Intelligence, Feinstein commented, “I don’t know whether you’d care to comment on this but [I] also noticed that Mr. Holbrooke in Pakistan ran into considerable concern about the use of the Predator strikes in the FATA area of Pakistan.”
“And yet, as I understand it, these are flown out of a Pakistani base.” Feinstein added.
This was sent to me today by a friend.
I happen to be old enough to remember Ronald Reagan and experienced him as a politician as Governor of California. Before it was SO FAR GONE.
He campaigned for change and unlike today … CHANGE IS WHAT WE GOT … only then it was for the better. He slashed thru the budget like it was butter while the ‘liberals’ and ‘slaves to the state’ moaned and whined. The end result was his advancement to the White house and we know the results there.
These quotes made me smile … hope they do the same for you.
‘Here’s my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.’
– Ronald Reagan
‘I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘The taxpayer: That’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.’
– Ronald Reagan
‘Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.’
– Ronald Reagan
‘The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.’ – Ronald Reagan
‘If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God , then we will be a nation gone under.’ – Ronald Reagan
I am a big believer in the “law of return” call it what you will, karma, sow what you reap, tit for tat, chickens come home to roost, an eye for an eye.
Those trained to be observant see this work daily. NO ONE ESCAPES. The thing I find most interesting is the payback is usually PERFECT. It strikes at the very heart of what we desire most in the world. WHATEVER that desire might be … it will be withheld or tarnished in some way. There is no REWARD for bad behavior. There is no discussion of what is or is not bad behavior …. WE ALL innately know in our heart.
Here is a perfect example:
We all know how a large part of the population has ragged incessantly on George Bush for one thing or another over the last 8 years. The bottom line is simple. No matter what anyone says … this man and his family are the epitome of classy.
Hillary and Bill Clinton were for the most part darlings of politics for the 8 years he held office. Clinton received a pass for most of his past bad behavior. Hillary went along for whatever reason and actually was a part of it all on some level.
It is my belief her fondest desire was the Presidency of 2008. It was snatched from her grasp from literally an unknown at the last moment. Why? How did this happen? Barack Obama CERTAINLY OFFERED NOTHING in the way of experience over what Hillary had to offer.
The sad TRUTH is Barack Obama had less to offer in any way shape or form than Sarah Palin. Who today is still ragged on incessantly by those who dislike her for whatever their reasons. But those who dislike her can not seem to see that for themselves. It is an interesting dichotomy to observe.
The comparison of behavior between outgoing President Bush & family and President Clinton & Hillary is an interesting example indeed.
1. Outgoing President George W. Bush quietly boards his helicopter and leaves for Texas, commenting only: “Today is not about me. Today is a historical day for our nation and people.”
Eight years ago:
1. Outgoing President Bill Clinton schedules two separate radio addresses to the nation, and organizes a public farewell speech/ rally in downtown Washington D.C. scheduled to directly conflict with incoming President Bush’s inauguration ceremony.
2. President Bush leaves office without issuing a single Presidential pardon, only granting a commutation of sentence to two former border patrol agents convicted of shooting a convicted drug smuggler. He does not grant any type of clemency to Scooter Libby or any other former political aide, ally, or business partner.
Eight years ago:
2. President Clinton issues 140 pardons and several commutations of sentence on his final day in office. Included in these are: billionaire financier, convicted tax evader, and leading Democratic campaign contributor Marc Rich; Whitewater scandal figure Susan McDougal; Congressional Post Office Scandal figure and former Democratic Congressman Dan Rostenkowski; convicted bank fraud, sexual assault and child porn perpetrator and former Democratic Congressman Melvin Reynolds; and convicted drug felon Roger Clinton, the President’s half-brother.
3. The Bush daughters leave gift baskets in the White House bedrooms for the Obama daughters, containing flowers, candy, stuffed animals, DVD’s and CD’s, and heartfelt notes of encouragement and advice for the young girls on how to prepare for their new lives in the White House.
Eight years ago:
3. Clinton and Gore staffers rip computer wires and electrical outlets from the White House walls, stuff piles of notebook papers into the White House toilets, systematically remove the letter “W” from every computer key-pad in the entire White House, and damage several thousand dollars worth of furniture in the White House master bedroom.
