All Hail, President Obama

Posted by thebosun on March 9, 2009

It has been increasingly quiet for American service personnel in Iraq in the past few weeks.   Looks like President Oby won the war, in less than 45 days. Now he can concentrate on pulling the troops out of Afghanistan, pulling the plug on missile shield in eastern Europe, throw eastern European friends under the socialist bus, side with the Russians, throw Israel under the bus, side with the Arabs, etc etc.

all in a days work for President Oby.

But, Iraq, President Oby won the war in less than 45 days. He straightened out Bush’s Quagmire…..

Will Obama betray Lebanon and Israel in favor of Syria?

Posted by thebosun on March 8, 2009

One of my friends, Jibaro, posted a poll on Hannity forum.   Jibaro contends that there is a possibility that President Obama’s administration may betray Lebanon and Israel in favor of terrorism Syria.   Obama’s senior negotiators meeting with Syrians report significant results.

A senior US envoy involved in the first high-level contact between the US and Syria since 2005 has said the talks were "very constructive".  Jeffrey Feltman, acting assistant US secretary of state for the Near East, met officials including Foreign Minister Walid Muallem in Damascus.  Source: New US-Syria talks ‘constructive’

I would like to point out that the Obamanation of United States foreign policy was predictable from day one with Obama’s coin toss for change and the liberals jumping to catch Obama’s loose change toose. 

Many on the left side of American politics totally support the Palestinian cause without knowing the facts.   Many have given money indirectly to Hamas organizations through third party charities.   Many knowingly give directly to Hamas.  Heck, many on the left side of American politics look at Hezbollah as legitimate.  We all can agree that many on the left side of American politics don’t particularly like Christians, and many, including some liberal Jews are anti-Zion and anti-Israel.

Many fail to see that G_d made a covenant with the Hebrew people.

Radical Muhammadans have been trying to disprove the covenant and say that the Qur’an and Old Testament are corrupted from about that time that Muhammad was rejected by the people of the book,Ahl al-Kitāb  ( أهل الكتاب ‎).  Radical Muhammadans are also intent on tearing apart the true faith of Abraham (insert the illegitimate son, Ishmael, as heir apparent, and discounting Isaac.)

In the face of the inexplicable (apology and appeasement of Obamunism) we must keep faith and try to stay true to the course charted by the founding fathers of America. It is difficult given the  conduct of some who claim to be republicans and/or conservative.

This current trend of Obamunism apology and appeasement of terrorists is a fine example of how those who deserted conservatism in the mid term 2006 elections (put Pelosi and Reid in charge of the legislative branch) did more damage to our country than they would like to believe.

During the 2008 Election we had community activism, ACORN and other activist organizations, and a whole bunch of liberals suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome vote in the 2008 elections to enthrone Obamanation.

When it is all said and done, I wonder if those who stayed home during the 2006 mid term elections are happy.  I wonder if those who voted for activism loose change are happy with themselves and their votes, now.

May G_d bless and protect the free world from apology and appeasement of terrorists and the fascism they are trying to spread…

ANOTHER CHANCE TO PUSH E-VERIFY — Phone to Get Long-Term Extension in Spending Bill

DEAR FRIENDS,

Your anti-illegal-immigration allies in the U.S. House have asked us to get your help Tuesday and Wednesday in obtaining signatures on a crucial letter (see text below).

They need you to support their last-ditch effort to put a long-term extension of the E-Verify program in the giant spending bill before Congress this week.

When we are asked directly by Members of Congress for help, we have to be willing to back them up. They know that the only way to succeed is if they have your help in phoning their colleagues and asking them to sign a crucial letter to House Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Leader Boehner (R-Ohio).

The key point sentence of the letter is this:

“Please do everything within your power to protect legal workers by ensuring that the E-Verify program is reauthorized long-term in the Omnibus Appropriations Act.”

Pelosi and Boehner have the power to make that happen when the bill comes to the House/Senate negotiating committee if they would just resolve to do it.

Your assignment — if you choose to accept it — is to phone your own U.S. Representative and ask him/her to sign the letter.

Step 1: Just phone your Rep at 202-224-3121.
Step 2: Tell the staffers that their boss has already received a letter about E-Verify from Rep. Bilbray’s office.
Step 3: Read the key sentence that I quoted above.
Step 4: Ask that your Rep contact Congressman Bilbray’s office at 225-0508 and pledge to sign the letter — or at least to get another copy of it to read. (YOU should NOT call Mr. Bilbray’s office because that will tie up his phone.)
Step 5: Note that Mr. Bilbray has to receive the pledge by the close of business Wednesday.
Step 6: Emphasize that the American people are growing tired of the delaying tactics of Congress over the last six months. It is time to stop treating E-Verify as a political football and to give it the long-term authorization that states and businesses need to be able to rely on the program.
Thanks for taking quick action on this.

If your own Representative is Pelosi or Boehner, they obviously won’t be signing the letter. Just phone them and tell them that you agree with the letter that is being sent to them from other Members.

If your Rep is Bilbray or Shuler (original signers), give their staffs a break and call a neighboring Member of Congress.

Here is the letter you are asking your Congress(wo)man to sign:

Dear Madam Speaker and Republican Leader Boehner:

As Members of the House of Representatives, we appeal to you on behalf of American workers. Nationwide, 7.6 percent of the labor force–11.6 million workers–is unemployed, and millions more are involuntarily working part-time or have given up hope of finding a job. Estimates of the number of jobs that might be created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the Recovery Act) vary widely. While no one can predict exactly how many jobs will be created, we believe that the American people deserve to know that their tax dollars are being used to create jobs for legal workers.

While the House version of the Recovery Act included two E-Verify-related measures to ensure American jobs would be protected, the Senate failed to include similar language. Because of the Senate’s oversight, we, the undersigned Members of the House of Representatives, urge you to protect taxpayers and legal workers by including these critical jobs protection provisions in any future economic recovery legislation. The House version of the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009, H.R. 1105, included a short-term extension of the E-Verify program through the end of the fiscal year (September 30, 2009). While a short-term extension is a step in the right direction, it is difficult for business to plan and effectively utilize the program without its secure future.

According to recent analysis, as many as 300,000 illegal aliens could receive jobs funded by the recovery program because these provisions were not included in the final version of the Recovery Act. If these provisions do not become law, not only will the important E-Verify program be in danger of expiring on March 6, 2009, but it may mean that hundreds of thousands of potential jobs for American workers will be compromised.

The E-Verify program enjoys a success rate of 99.6%, meaning that 99.6% of those legal workers checked by the program are verified through E-Verify without receiving a tentative non-confirmation (TNC) or having to take any type of corrective action. Testifying in June, Rep. Heath Shuler said, “E-Verify is handling at least one in eight new hires already. Based on recent load testing, the system has the capacity to handle 240 million queries a year – that’s four times the number of people in the United States who are usually hired in a given year.” The E-Verify program is reliable, easy to use and, most importantly, expedient.

Employers who break the law by hiring illegal immigrants create unfair competition in the labor market and depress wages for all workers. The Center for Immigration Studies has found that the current level of immigration has reduced the wages of the average native-born worker in a low-skilled occupation by 12% a year, or almost $2,000. Alexander Aleinikoff, a former Clinton Administration INS official, Dean of Georgetown Law School and co-chair of the Immigration Policy Review Team for the Presidential Transition of Barack Obama, calls it a “myth” that “there is little or no competition between undocumented workers and American workers . . . .”

According to estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center, roughly 7.7 million illegal immigrants are employed in the United States in 2008. These are all jobs that currently unemployed United States workers–both citizens and legal immigrants–could and should have a chance to fill. If the E-Verify program is not reauthorized, this Congress and our President will spend more than $1 trillion of taxpayer money to possibly provide jobs for illegal workers. Please do everything within your power to protect legal workers by ensuring that the E-Verify program is reauthorized long-term in the Omnibus Appropriations Act.

Welfare Entitlements Reparations Act of 2009

Posted by thebosun on March 1, 2009

Welfare Entitlements Reparations Act of 2009


Just a month a few days of loose change in the White House (gotta change that name to pink house, yellow house, red house, or ****house) President Barry Milhous Obamy signed the Welfare Entitlements Reparations Act of 2009, essentially making the average American taxpayer be libel to the tune of $25,000 tax bill and rising. (Financially challenged will collect $500 and a debt free house courtesy of the Acorn Mortgage Management Corporation).

Barry Milhous Obamy, the new Robin Hood of the Washington Forest, figures that by the time he is done robbing the rich to pay the poor, America will be fleeced dry and he can then sell all Federal Land to the China, Russia, and Venezuela. And, Russia can claim the oil on the Alaska North Slopes, that way his hands will be clean for the environmentalists.

From what I understand Hot Dog Frank, Stretch Pelosi, Swift-boat (rice in his but) Kerry, and Sheets Reid will overturn the 22nd Amendment and install the messiah for life.

Pelosi was overheard telling Barbie Boxer that she has never had a better time ****ing the stupid voters and that the swamp mice are multiplying and taking up residence in the Bart tunnel. That should stop the Bart trains and save the economy of the flower city.

Mission accomplished **** you John Wayne and put your apple pie someplace else.
