Eric Holder, the Man Beside the President

Sorry. Voter intimidation is back. And when it happened in 2008, Eric Holder, Barack Ob ama’s Attorney General, the top law enforcement official in the land, decided this time it was NOT against any law.

Today, the notion that a US administration would use racial intimidation to terrorize their opposition’s supporters is simply unthinkable.

But to Eric Holder, Barack Obama, and the partisan ideologues working at the DOJ, racial bullying of white voters is entirely justified. In other words, it’s payback.

J. Christian Adams, a former attorney for the DOJ, is nothing less than a hero for writing this book. You will be outraged when you read it — but you’ll also be prepared for what’s coming in the next presidential election.

Adams takes you inside the Voting Rights section of the DOJ to reveal how Obama and Holder changed the department’s hiring standards so it could be “packed” with radical leftists and vengeful racial grievance specialists.

Immediately after taking office, Obama launched a hiring blitz of 130 new lawyers. Requests for copies of their resumes were stonewalled. Only after a lawsuit did the truth come out about these hires. The Voting Section of DOJ is now under the control of radical lawyers hand-picked by Obama and Holder.

More frighteningly, these lawyers’ main career experience is in subverting voting laws — and they are the officials who will be standing watch over America’s voting system during the 2012 presidential election.

But who would want to take America back to the dark days of scare tactics and voter disenfranchisement because of race?

Maybe a failing President unable to win re-election on the strength of his record and who will, in desperation, play the race card.

Or maybe an Attorney General who is so embittered that he openly declares, “I am not the tall U.S. attorney. I am not the thin United States Attorney. I am the black United States Attorney.”

The Real Eric Holder – and the “Department of Payback”

Most Americans, if they’ve even heard of Eric Holder, think of the controversial Attorney General mixed up in the notorious “Fast and Furious” guns-to-Mexico fiasco which resulted in the death of a US border agent.

The ATF gun scandal is horrifying enough, but as Christian Adams reveals in Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, there are many more reasons to be deeply worried about Eric Holder.

The first realization for Adams came with the infamous New Black Panther Party incident on Election Day 2008. During the voting, NBPP members patrolled polling places in Philadelphia and threatened white and Asian voters along with poll and campaign workers with deadly weapons.

Despite ample witnesses, including a former publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, the Holder/Obama DOJ spiked the case. The new government made it plain they had no interest in fighting discrimination against white people. The case was dropped even though Adams and other honest DOJ lawyers knew they had it won.

Since then, the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division has degenerated into a politicized fiefdom for far-left militants and race activists, where enforcement of the law depends on the race of the victim. This courageous book reveals:

  • How the DOJ routinely sides with political bosses who are little more than professional race agitators who flagrantly disenfranchise entire communities of white voters. How the DOJ routinely ignores legitimate complaints about blatant voter intimidation from the “wrong” petitioners (whites, Asians or registered Republicans) — yet fights doggedly on behalf of children’s rights to attend school dressed as transvestites… and for teachers’ rights to a month’s paid leave for a pilgrimage to Mecca.
  • How the Obama administration goes above and beyond with early voting options for the convenience of welfare recipients — while making it as difficult as possible for military personnel (who tend to vote Republican) to acquire timely absentee ballots in order to have their vote count.
  • Why the Holder/Obama DOJ no longer functions as a true Department of Justice but as a “Department of Payback” whose fixation on racial grievance threatens the integrity of the 2012 elections.

This is a book that is well worth the read before the November elections. You can oder it through Amazon, or you can receive a free copy from Human Events, if you are interested in their offering.

Ineptocracy (New Word)

You won’t find this in your old Webster’s. I Googled it and discovered it is a recently coined word found on a T-shirt on eBay. Getting really close to the bone! Read this one over slowly and absorb the facts that totally are within this sentence! Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. I love this word and believe that it will become a recognized English word. Finally, a word to describe our current political situation. DGM

Obama and the Catholic Church

There are many things that I find uncomfortable with the Roman Catholic Church, however  the Catholic Church in America is a major roadblock in Obama’s quest to bring complete Socialism to the United States of America.

This video explains why Obama and his minions must “divide and conquer” the Catholic Church, and Christians whatever the flavor. If you are Catholic, you need to watch this video. If not, you should see it anyway. The issues on which the Roman Church has taken a stand are issues most Christians could aggressively embrace.

The administration would like for us to understand their interpretation of “seperation of church and state,” but this video shows how the state is imposing it’s will on the church, not what the founding fathers had in mind. See Obama and the Catholic Church here.

Obama on European TV

George W. Bush was not known for his oratory. We remember how he became the fodder for the so called purveyors of comedy.

When Obama took the reins of government, the left fell over their own tongues praising how comfortable this new president was before the cameras. The truth is, this president is unable to function without a script or a teleprompter. Also, he would be well advised to find a couple of new speech writers

This clip is what is being shown on European TV. Not only is this president a disgrace to the office and this country, but he has become the laughing stock of the world.

Letter to a Friend that just Dropped off the Far Left Precepice

Recently I received a note from a dear life long friend who lives on the left edge of insanity. She attached with her note what she described as a Great Ad from MoveOn.org. The following is my response and for the sake of privacy her name has been changed.

Hi Beth, yes I’ve seen this piece. I am open to civil discourse but I’m not interested the following radical groups, to name just the most egregious:

The Tides Foundation and Tides Center would be at the top of my list only because they provide substantial funds to those on the hard left.

Environmental Extremist Groups

  • The Ruckus Society
  • The California Wildlands Project
  • The Natural Resources Defense Council
  • MoveOn.org
  • The National Lawyers Guild,
  • The Tides foundation
  • The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
  • Greenpeace
Anti-Terrorist Groups
  • The Iraq Peace Fund and the Peace Strategies Fund
  • MoveOn.org and the radical website Indymedia
  • United for Peace and Justice (UFPJ)

Islamic Groups (more than hundreds)

  • Council for American Islamic elations (CAIR)
  • Democratic Justice Fund (DJF)
  • Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee
Radical Legal Groups
  • The National Lawyers guild (NLG)
  • The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR)
  • ACLU
Voter Fraud Groups
  • Acorn

Everyone of these groups have many things in common, but one of interest, they are all funded by The Tides entities.

These groups are running high powered well financed scams. Their donors need to be held accountable for their actions. It is extremely hypocritical for individuals and foundations whose wealth is due to America’s free enterprise system to support causes that seek to destroy our way of life, your life.

If you’ve ever heard the clique “Limousine Liberal,” this is a perfect description for these people.

Four of its largest supporters are:

  • The Heinz Endowment, led by John Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry
  • George Soros
  • Ford Foundation
  • Rockefeller Foundation

These four main sources of funding for the Tides entities. Clearly there are many more that could be added to this list.

Bottom line … I have no interest in these groups whose primary purpose is to destroy America from within. They are, with rare exception, Marxist socialist seeking to remove your individual freedoms and remake America into something worst than current European states that our forefathers could not even recognize. Beth, you have a good mind. In my view it’s tragic that it has become filled with lies about and contempt for America from these groups that would like to see the freedom and greatness of this country slip into oblivion.

At the moment you are playing with the winning side. These groups and Obama are moving this country rapidly to the brink. The Supreme Court has one chance to change Obama’s massive folly (health care), if they don’t the congress may have that chance depending on the November elections. And if neither of those scenarios happen, you will not know the country that has provided you and every other citizen, immigrate, legal and illegal opportunities beyond anything one might have imagined. Before you bow at the altar of your friends on the left, ask yourself a simple question, “why have people and why are imigrents risking their lives to get into this country?” Did it ever occur to you that others from the outside are thinking this is a pretty good place. The last thing America needs is more “Hope and Change.”

So please, especially since we are moving into a turbulent political time, if you have propaganda from these groups or those who sleep with them in bed, save it, I’m really not interested, and I will do the same for you. You need to understand this has nothing to do with how I think of you and care for you.

I don’t stop loving people because they see things differently politically, but I would not want you to feel that I am one you could pray for and somehow miraculously I would embrace what I consider to be evil. Your a dear friend, keep fighting for what you believe in and know I will do the same.

Note: The next post will provide some insight on the massive perks the president has provided Islam, while slamming people of faith and our military.

America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U.S. President

Some reading this title will immediately think, “here comes another nut case bent on destroying the reputation of our president.” If that would be your view you would be wrong and devoid of any objective ability to see or understand the events of our time. You might even be compared to the proverbial frog who eventually boils to death unable to discern the temperature has changed in his death trap. Like the frog, will we be so unsensitized to this administration’s passion to change our great nation forever?

WallBuilders, in their “Issues and Articles” has carefully researched all the ways our current administration has taken hostile action against people of Biblical faith, while at the same time  allowing Islam preferential treatment that is unprecedented. The article is long, but an absolute read for every American that is concerned about religious liberty, first amendment rights and freedom that historically has been provided by our U.S. Constitution.

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical.

And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions. Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisers guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

Obamacare and the Supreme Court

For a number of years I have supported “Advocates For Faith & Freedom.” Members of this firm possess very bright legal minds and articulate well the issues for which I have concern. I share with you their latest post on Obamacare and the Supreme Court.

For the next three days, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Florida v. United States Department of Health and Human Services, the case to determine whether Obamacare is constitutional or not.

Obamacare has come under fire from many different groups, and there are several questions that need to be answered:

  • Is Obamacare unconstitutional because of its individual mandate, stating that every person must buy health care, and doesn’t this constrain individual freedom and violate the Constitutional concept of limited government?
  • Because there is a penalty for not buying health insurance, will that penalty be considered a tax or a fine?
  • Does Obamacare use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions?

Although the individual mandate question is certainly the most contested and controversial, we find the last question regarding abortion coverage to be as important as any other. According to Obamacare policy, enrollees in certain insurance plans will be required to pay a $1 surcharge every month, above their plan fees, for abortion services, whether they plan to use them or not, or whether they believe in them or not. They will only be informed of this surcharge only one time, upon enrollment in the program – meaning it could simply be one sentence in a giant insurance plan document. In addition, people won’t be able to opt-out of the abortion surcharge without opting out of the entire insurance plan.

This sounds a lot like forcing Americans to fund abortions, doesn’t it? If Obamacare is allowed to endure, countless Americans, many of whom are pro-life, will be paying for abortions out of their own pockets.

We will be eagerly watching as this U.S. Supreme Court review unfolds over the next few days, and we ask that you join us in prayer as this monumental decision is made in our nation’s highest Court.

A Change in Perspective when Your Driving the Bus

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” —

Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Congressional Report: Hezbollah has “several thousand” donors in the USA

A report issued by the House Homeland Security Committee indicates that Hezbollah has a large and threatening presence inside the USA and is successfully raising funds inside the USA to support its Jihad. Among the findings outlined in the report which are particularly relevant for SFW readers:
• Counterterrorism officials consider Hezbollah fundraising cells to be prevalent across the United States.
• Sophisticated operations have been uncovered within large Lebanese communities in New York and Michigan, but also in other parts of the USA, such as Charlotte, NC.
• There is a general consensus among dozens of experts as well as current and former law enforcement and intelligence officials that Hezbollah, more than any other terrorist organization, is the most capable of transforming US-based fundraising cells into lethal terrorist cells at the order of the Iranian regime.
• There are likely several thousand sympathetic Hezbollah donors across America and hundreds of actual operatives.
• Some Hezbollah terrorists have been quietly convicted of fraud or other criminal activities and deported without their Hezbollah ties being publicly disclosed by federal prosecutors.

The entire preliminary Homeland Security Report report can be found here:

It is highly likely that donations to Hezbollah have come from the USA in the form of zakat payments. Regular readers of SFW will recall that zakat is a form of tithing required under Shariah. The problem with zakat however, is that numerous sources and authorities have confirmed that one of the destinations of zakat money is to those waging violent Jihad. We covered this in detail in a posting in October of 2011:

This is related to Shariah-compliant finance in that Shariah-compliant financial institutions are required to donate under zakat just as individuals are. There is an obvious moral hazard involved.

Stupidity Travels at the Speed of Sound

When President Obama stopped in at the Master Lock factory in Milwaukee Wisconsin Feb 15, 2012, he was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and people around him . “It is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as this union is ” – – – – pointing to the banner. He then said “a Union shop since 1848” – – – and then he went on to talk about what that banner stood for and how important it was to display it and show your union support.

The worker then said to Obama that this is the flag of the State of Wisconsin – – which was founded in 1848. This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130 am) and not by the Major news networks – – – they did not want to embarrass this – “got no clue” President . Since they didn’t do their job of reporting on this presidential visit, the only way for the news to get around is by us. We don’t take delight in pointing out stupidity especially from the office of our President, but there are times when one wonders just HOW BRIGHT THIS PRESIDENT AND HIS HANDLERS REALLY ARE !!! ???. HE CAN RADDLE OFF ALEDGED MUSLIM ACCOMPLISHMENTS, BUT HE APPEARS TO  KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY HE IS PRESIDENT OF.

NO UNIONS YET IN 1848!
