Obama's Changing Tax Target

In Obamaland, they promised first no tax increase for incomes of $250,000 and under. I didn't object because I earn under $250,000.

And then they promised no tax increase for incomes of $200,000 and under. I didn't object because I earn under $200,000.

And then they promised no tax increase for incomes of $150,000 and under. I didn't object because I earn under $150,000.

And then they promised no tax increase for incomes of $120,000 and under. I didn't object because I earn under $120,000.

When Senator Barack Obama twice voted yea to the Democrats' FY 2009 Budget Resolution, he promised no tax increase for incomes of $41,500 a year, or $32,000 taxable income, and under. Now I'm objecting.

When will Obama and the Democrats lower the promised threshold to incomes of $0.00 and under? Tomorrow? Next week? Or only after the Oath of Office is sworn and then claim the financial crisis is bigger than they knew, then announce that everyone will pay higher, much higher taxes?

From $250,000 to $200,000 to $150,000 to $120,000 in the span of one month. Barack Obama changes faster and so often that most folks cannot follow. That's what he's counting on.

Obama Aunt Illegal Contributor Before Deportation

Barack Obama's Kenyan aunt was found recently living illegally in a Boston tenement for four years.
Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as "Aunti Zeituni" in Obama's memoir, was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request, a person familiar with the matter told the AP late Friday.
Aunti Zeituni
recently made a $260 campaign contribution to her nephew's presidential bid from a work address in the city.
Wonder if she was registered to vote by ACORN and voted, yet?

Obama Stripped Bare by Former Hillary Staffer

A reputed Hillary staffer blog post has been going around the last couple of days. It's called, "What you were never intended to know in this election: A Hillary staffer comes clean". There is some skepticism as to the authenticity because in most reprinted posts the author is Anonymous. At RedState, the author is Anonymous_14. And both are dated October 30.

I first saw the post at Atlas Shrugs who found it at Israpundit. Blog posts tend to be circular, obtaining authority from a previous blogger and the beginning of the blog chain does not provide a source. So it seems with this post. Doesn't really matter, though. The information is fully consistent with the stratagems of Lenin, Mao, Ho, Putin, Ortega, Ayers, Alinsky, Castro, and all other Socialist theorist and practitioner. Demoralize the opposition, convince them that the majority is against them, befriend the pollsters, manipulate, manipulate, manipulate.

The original seems to be a post at Hillbuzz, Confession of an Obama Blogger - by Sarah P (as posted to this site), written 10-27/08 and posted 10-30/08.

Ok, I want to clear my conscious a little. Hopefully you could make a blog post to help some fellow clinton supporters out.

I work for a campaign and can’t wait for this week to be over.

I was doing it for a job. I was not a fan of any candidate but over time grew to love HRC.

The internal campaign idea is to twist, distort, humiliate and finally dispirit you.

We pay people and organize people to go to all the online sites and “play the part of a clinton or mccain supporter who just switched our support for obama”

We do this to stifle your motivation and to destroy your confidence.

We did this the whole primary and it worked.

Sprinkle in mass vote confusion and it becomes bewildering. Most people lose patience and just give up on their support of a candidate and decide to just block out tv, news, websites, etc.

This surprisingly has had a huge suppressing movement and vote turnout issues.

Next, we infiltrate all the blogs and all the youtube videos and overwhelm the voting, the comments, etc. All to continue this appearance of overwhelming world support.

People makes posts to the effect that the world has
“gone mad”

Thats the intention. To make you feel stressed and crazy and feel like the world is ending.

We have also had quite a hand in skewing many many polls, some we couldn’t control as much as we would have liked. But many we have spoiled over. Just enough to make real clear politics look scarey to a mccain supporter. Its worked, alough the goal was to appear 13-15 points ahead.

see, the results have been working. People tend to support a winner, go with the flow, become “sheeple”

The polls are roughly 3-5 points in favor of Barack. Thats due to our inflation of the polls and pulling in the sheeple.

Our donors, are the same people who finance the MSM. Their interests are tied, Barack then tends to come across as teflon. Nothing sticks. And trust, there were meetings with Fox news. The goal was to blunt them as much as possible. Watch Bill Oreilly he has become much more diplomatic and “fair and balanced” and soft. Its because he wants to retain the #1 spot on cable news and to do that he has to have access to the Obama campaign and we worked hard at stringing him a long and keeping him soft for an interview swap. It worked and now he is anticipating more access. So he is playing it still soft.

This is why nothing sticks.

The operation is massive, the goal is to paint a picture that is that of a winner, regardless of the results.

There is no true inauguration draft or true grant park construction going on. There will be a party, but we are boasting beyond the truth to make it seem like the election is wrapped up.

Our goal is to continue to make you lose your moral. We worked hard at persuasion and paying off and timing and playing the right political numbers to get key republican endorsements to make it seem even more like it was over and the world was coming to an end for you all.

There is a huge staff of people working around the clock, watching every site, blogs, etc. We flood these sites. We have had a goal to overwhelm.

The truth is here. I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

I am saying this because I know HRC was better for the country, and now realize this. I was too late by the time I connected to her. To me Barack was just a cool young dude that seemed like a star. I didn’t know him or his policies, but now I understand more than I care to and I realize his interests are more for him, and the DNC and all working like puppets with dean. I always thought a president wanted the better good for the country. The end result I see is everyone dependent on the government, this means more and more people voting for the DNC. This means the future is forever altered. I don’t see this as america, so I am now supporting John Mccain.

Sarah Palin is a huge threat, and our campaign has feared her like you can’t imagine. If it seems unfair how she has been treated, well its because she has had a team working round the clock to make her look like a fool.

this is a big conspiracy and I am so shocked that its not realized.

We released a little blurb the other day that the Obama campaign was already working on reelection and now putting our efforts towards 2012. This was to make it seem like it was above us to continue caring about 2008. Trust me, its a lie. David is very smart, but its a sticky ugly not very truthful kind of intelligence.

Its not over yet, but I think the machine is working. And its a hill to climb.

I will be quitting my post on nov 5th and my vote will be for John Mccain. Fortunately, my position has been a marketing position and I don’t feel I had any part of anything I would feel guilty for. But I look forward to getting out of this as the negativity and environment upsets me.

I wish you all well, and goodluck.

PS my name is not really sarah. but I am a female and I understand your plight.
I am personally certain that the author is the anonymous "Sarah P". She left an answering comment at Hillbuzz where her veracity an reality were being questioned. The post comment is in character with the original post.

The truth is simple. The idea is to appear as a winner. To deflate your opponent. To overwhelm your opponent. To confuse your opponent. And to own the airwaves. There was a mass coordination on foreigners to visit online sites and vote to declare who won in the debates. Did you notice that John Mccain seemed to lose and lose badly every time. Where did all those voters come from?
How about the polls, how were the skewed? Take a look at the internals, always. But, above that think about something. How wold a polling company get paid? How would this be a viable business just on its own? They get paid by networks, ever notice how every two hours there is a pollster being interviewed and talking about his polls. Ever notice,
the polls one day will have Barack Obama leading by 12, then the next day leading by 5, then the next day up to 8. How is that possible?
This is the internal truth. However, there is strong internal fear that there is no more votes left for him to pick up. Currently we see him at only 46% of the vote. Maybe 48% maximum.

If that wasn’t the truth, if all the polls were correct. Then why would there be a need for a 30 minute spot on all the networks. The goal from now and until next tuesday is to pick up 2 more percentage points. That is the goal. That is what the campaign is working on right now.
All the polls will all end up being around 3 point difference come monday.
With the tons of money, legal and illegal, raised and spent by Obama, why is The One only 3% to 8% ahead? The mysterious Sarah P wrote that the goal was a 13-15% lead, but has never materialized no matter how much money Obama threw at people. I have commented on several blogs there is something happening in this campaign that is not and can not be measured. We now know. The metrics are crooked.

Come With Me to a Simpler Time

In 1963, America was a country that welcomed and celebrated the foreign in food, film, culture, travel, and music. On the Top 40 pop charts was a beautiful song from Japan that tells the song of a man who is heartbroken and lonely.

Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto
(with lyrics in English, Japanese, and Kanji script)

Looking up while walking
Ue wo muite arukou

So the tears won't fall
Namida ga koborenai youni

Remebering those spring days
Omoidasu haru no hi

All alone at night
Hitoribocchi no yoru

Looking up while walking
Ue wo muite arukou

And counting the scattered stars
Nijinda hoshi wo kazoete

Remembering those summer days
Omoidasu natsu no hi

All alone at night
Hitoribocchi no yoru

Happiness lies above the clouds
Shiawase wa kumo no ue ni

Happiness lies above the sky
Shiawase wa sora no ue ni

Looking up while walking
Ue wo muite arukou

So the tears won't fall
Namida ga koborenai youni

Keep walking on, while crying
Naki nagara aruku

It's a lonely night
Hitoribocchi no yoru


Remembering those autumn days
Omoidasu aki no hi

All alone at night
Hitoribocchi no yoru

Sadness is in the shadow of the stars
Kanashimi wa hoshi no kage ni

Sadness is in the shadow of the moon
Kanashimi wa tsuki no kage ni

Looking up while walking
Ue wo muite arukou

So the tears won't fall
Namida ga koborenai youni

Keep walking on, while crying
Naki nagara aruku

It's a lonely night
Hitoribocchi no yoru

It's a lonely night
Hitoribocchi no yoru

Obama Infomercial: If I Can Be a Victim, So Can You!

Just send him all your hard earned money.

Barack Obama, speaking from an office not so vaguely similar to the Oval Office in the White House, tells some stories and shows some scenes of ordinary Americans discussing their economic and health care troubles. His wife, Michelle, and his two daughters had cameos, and there were photos of his black father from Kenya and white mother from Kansas.

John McCain called the stunt a "gauzy feel good commercial".

In an after infomercial article, Calvin Woodward of the Associated Press did some fact checking and it's not all good for The One. It's about time!

Obama's prime-time ad skips over budget realities
CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press

THE SPIN: "That's why my health care plan includes improving information technology, requires coverage for preventive care and pre-existing conditions and lowers health care costs for the typical family by $2,500 a year."

THE FACTS: His plan does not lower premiums by $2,500, or any set amount. Obama hopes that by spending $50 billion over five years on electronic medical records and by improving access to proven disease management programs, among other steps, consumers will end up saving money. He uses an optimistic analysis to suggest cost reductions in national health care spending could amount to the equivalent of $2,500 for a family of four. Many economists are skeptical those savings can be achieved, but even if they are, it's not a certainty that every dollar would be passed on to consumers in the form of lower premiums.

THE SPIN: "I also believe every American has a right to affordable health care."

THE FACTS: That belief should not be confused with a guarantee of health coverage for all. He makes no such promise. Obama hinted as much in the ad when he said about the problem of the uninsured: "I want to start doing something about it." He would mandate coverage for children but not adults. His program is aimed at making insurance more affordable by offering the choice of government-subsidized coverage similar to that in a plan for federal employees and other steps, including requiring larger employers to share costs of insuring workers.

THE SPIN: "I've offered spending cuts above and beyond their cost."

THE FACTS: Independent analysts say both Obama and Republican John McCain would deepen the deficit. The nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates Obama's policy proposals would add a net $428 billion to the deficit over four years — and that analysis accepts the savings he claims from spending cuts. The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, whose other findings have been quoted approvingly by the Obama campaign, says: "Both John McCain and Barack Obama have proposed tax plans that would substantially increase the national debt over the next 10 years." The analysis goes on to say: "Neither candidate's plan would significantly increase economic growth unless offset by spending cuts or tax increases that the campaigns have not specified."

THE SPIN: "Here's what I'll do. Cut taxes for every working family making less than $200,000 a year. Give businesses a tax credit for every new employee that they hire right here in the U.S. over the next two years and eliminate tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. Help homeowners who are making a good faith effort to pay their mortgages, by freezing foreclosures for 90 days. And just like after 9-11, we'll provide low-cost loans to help small businesses pay their workers and keep their doors open. "

THE FACTS: His proposals — the tax cuts, the low-cost loans, the $15 billion a year he promises for alternative energy, and more — cost money, and the country could be facing a record $1 trillion deficit next year. Indeed, Obama recently acknowledged — although not in his commercial — that: "The next president will have to scale back his agenda and some of his proposals."

All Presidential candidates at some point try to appear humble and Obama, except for being The Messiah, is no different. He told America, "I will not be a perfect president. But I can promise you this — I will always tell you what I think and where I stand." Mr. Messiah, sir, could you start that part already?

Obama alluded to "being a secret communist... I shared my toys in kindergarten." But in true Obama fashion, blamed that rumor on John McCain.

Just like the DNC convention, Obama's team talk to many people who are victims of something or other - they had a torn ligament, the roof leaks, the dog died, the buggy whip factory closed. Victim after victim and none said, "Hey, I took a chance and lost."

He also said that wherever he has gone in America, he has seen met people with great hope and optimism. Apparently nobody has told him those people were all Republicans.

Obama Tax Cut Jumps Down From $250K

Barack Obama has assured the country that folks earning $250,000 and less will get a tax cut. Joe Wurzelbacher challenged Obama on the point saying $250K was an arbitrary number that soon could be changed to $150,000 or less.

Joe Six-Term Biden lowered yesterday the $250,000 limit to $150,000 in an interview in his boyhood hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania when he said,
"What we're saying is, that $87 billion tax break doesn't need to go to people making an average of $1.4 million. It should go to middle-class people, people who make $150,000 a year."

McCain answered,
"It's interesting how their definition of 'rich' has a way of creeping down."

"Senator Obama has made a lot of promises. First, he said people making less than $250,000 would benefit from his plan.

"Then, this weekend, he announced in an ad that if you're a family making less than $200,000 you'll benefit - but yesterday right here in Pennsylvania, Senator Biden said tax relief should only go to 'middle-class people' - people making under $150,000 a year.

"At this rate, it won't be long before Senator Obama is right back to his vote that Americans making just $42,000 a year should get a tax increase

Hmmm, Obama started at $42,000, went up to $250,000, then slightly down to $200,000, now down to $150,000 and less will get tax cuts. McCain says the number will be back to $42,000 soon. I don't believe there will be a tax cut at all under Barack Obama. Eventually, he will announce that anyone making less than $0.00 per year will get a tax cut. That will comport with his desire to cut the taxes of the 40% of Americans who pay no taxes now.

Saddam Hussein to B. Hussein Obama in Three Short Steps

There are six degrees of separation between every person on the planet, or so it's claimed. Seems though that there are only three degrees of separation between Barack Hussein Obama and dead Saddam Hussein.

Daniel Pipes (Frontpage) makes the connection between the Iraq/UN Oil for Food scam and Obama's Chicago mansion. The dots connect Saddam Hussein to Nadhmi Auchi to Antoin S. "Tony" Rezko and finally to Barack Obama.

In three steps, these corrupt businessmen tie the Democratic Party presidential candidate to the executed Iraqi tyrant:

1. Saddam Hussein made use of Auchi: Auchi's fortune largely grew through his Iraq government connection, much of it sub rosa. In the 1980s, he procured Italian military ships. By 1993, the Italian banker Pierfrancesco Pacini Battaglia testified about Auchi bribing Iraqi officials for an Italian engineering company and called Auchi "one of the most important intermediaries in the affairs of Middle Eastern countries." Auchi is also a major shareholder in BNP Paribas, the French bank deeply implicated in the U.N.'s corrupt Iraq oil-for-food program.

2. Auchi made use of Rezko: Rezko lobbied for Auchi to be allowed into the United States. A wholly-owned GMHSA subsidiary, Fintrade Services Inc., transferred a loan of $3.5 million on May 23, 2005 to Rezko.

3. Rezko cultivated Obama: Rezko offered Barack Obama a job in 1990, which Obama declined. Still, Rezko persisted, hiring him for legal work and hosting in 2003 an early fundraiser that, writes David Mendell in Obama: From Promise to Power, proved "instrumental in providing Obama with seed money" for his nascent U.S. Senate campaign. Then, on June 15, 2005, just twenty-three days after receiving Auchi's $3.5 million, Rezko partnered with Obama in a real estate deal: while Rezko's wife paid the full asking price, $625,000, for an empty adjoining lot which they then improved, subdivided, and partially sold to Obama, Obama acquired a mansion for $1.65 million, $300,000 under the asking price.
Summing up: Barack Obama's house purchase depended on favors from Rezko, flush with a "loan" from Auchi, whose fortune derived in part from Saddam Hussein's favor. Read the whole sordid story here.
Well, at least some good will come from the illegal and shady dealings. Two little black girls have a home and food to eat.

Spaceships for Obama

I am busy voting tonight. So, I have a special guest and I mean special.

The Prophet Yahweh reveals that two spaceships will appear over the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. These extraterrestrial craft will hover in the sky for three days and nights. This will happen on October 31, 2008 in support of Barack Obama as President of the United States. The spacemen will be telling the all of us to vote for Barack Obama.

If it doesn't happen on the 31st of October, then the ET's will tell us to vote for Obama November 11. But, the Prophet Yahweh says, don't bet on it because betting is a bad use of your money.

WOW! Some pretty heavy stuff.

Don't click on the next video unless you want to be Rick Rolled. It's true. You click on this video and you will see Rick Astley performing his hit song "Never Gonna Give You Up".

See, I told you it was Rick Astley. I'm a Republican, I can't lie.

2001 Marxist Obama Advocates Overthrow of Republic

With Karl Marx in tow, Barack Obama was interviewed on Chicago Public Radio WBEZ FM in 2001 about the "redistribution of wealth" a phrase and concept he clearly uses throughout the interview. His remarks to Joe the Plumber in the chance street meeting were not off-the-cuff or poorly fleshed out.

Listen to the interview unearthed just hours ago and presented by Naked Emperor News on You Tube:

The partial transcript below was purloined from Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs:

If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it I’d be okay.

But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.

It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted.
[This is very a interesting and important passage. It clearly shows that Barack Obama understands the basic principle of the Constitution is that it is a "charter of negative liberties" upon the governments vis-a-vis the citizenry and he is fully aware that what he's proposing is in direct opposition the Founders framework. - IR]

One of the I think tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.
Maybe this is why Obama/Biden are so upset over the Barbara West interview of Joe Six Term Biden and her questioning the parallels between Karl Marx and Barack Obama. The Obama Thuggery cut off all reportorial privileges to the station afterwards.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign. -Orlando Sentinal.

Amy Procter, Bottom Line Up Front, has this partial transcript of the Marx question:

WEST: Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?

Senator Obama now famously told Joe the Plumber he wanted to spread his wealth around. A Gallup Poll showed 84% of Americans prefer government focused on improving economic conditions and creating more jobs in the U.S. as opposed to taking steps to distribute wealth. Isn’t Senator Obama’s comment a potential crushing political blunder?

You may recognize this famous quote: “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” That’s from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?

BIDEN: Are you joking? Is this a joke?
By suggesting such a radical change in the Constitution of the United States of America, Barack Obama is proposing the overthrow of the Government and the Republic, a Republic that has stood for over 200 years while the Marxist and Communist governments have all failed or are in the process of failure.

Barack Obama is proposing, from his own mouth, to overthrow the Government of the United States from within and that is sedition. The actual attempt to do so is treason. The Presidential Oath of Office reads that the President will defend the Constitution from all enemies from within and without. How does Barack Hussein Obama propose to carry out that oath while overthrowing that same government at the same time?

What Happened to the First $80 Million?

There's an adage that all politics is local. Well, so are taxes. I've lived in Tustin, CA. for near 10 years and have rented the same apartment that whole time. I don't directly pay property taxes that subsidize city services like police, fire, and education. But, like every sane person buying goods and services, I want to see results from my bucks before I give more.

I got a flyer in the mail concerning a measure on the local ballot. Local politics is more direct democracy than is probably necessary, but we, the people, get to make our own stupid choices and then blame the results on the elected few. The flyer advocates a 'No' vote on Measure L. The Measure L asks for more money and says it's "for the kids". Over the years, I think most folks, Conservatives and the few honest Liberals see the kid schtick as a ploy to pull at the heartstrings.

The flyer says:

Six years ago the TUSD Board was given $80 million by you the Tustin Taxpayer; they promised they would fix up all of our schools, and before they have even spent all of the money, they're coming to ask for $95 million more. That is simply outrageous and irresponsible. It abuses the taxpayers of Tustin for 27 more years.The first bond passed in 2002 on the promise that it would do the job and has taxpayers indentured until 2032. The School Board that we have entrusted with educating our children want to extend that dept from $80 million to $175 million and extend the term to 2035. This is a clear assault on the value of your property.
I was going to vote NO anyway. This request comes up every election, which means every year. Though I don't have kids and think education should be funded full tilt, I also don't like being taken for a fool. The children of Tustin have always been among the best performing students in the state. Somebody is doing something right. It just doesn't seem to be the School Board.

Maybe Tustin has smarter students.
