7/1/09 1.  Rep. Alan Grayson asks the Federal Reserve Inspector General about the trillions and trillions of dollars lent or spent by the Federal Reserve in the last eight months and where it went.

2.  In a public address delivered on Al-Aqsa TV by Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, the Damascus-based terror boss informed Arab viewers that Barack Hussein Obama came to power in the United States due to Islamic jihad in the Middle East.

3.  IsraelNationalNews.com reports that in the latest in a recent series of increased American assistance efforts for Arab and Muslim states, Barack Obama has allocated an additional $150 million to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.  The regimes leading Egypt, the Palestinian Authority, the United Arab Emirates and even Saudi Arabia have all benefited from recent American policy shifts.

4.  The Obama Doctrine -- cartoon.

5.  Obama squirmed and weaseled his words with the Iranian Mullahs and their puppet-tyrant, Ahmadinejad, not wanting to be seen as meddling in a tyrannical theocracy, known throughout the world as beneath-contempt oppressors of every human right under the sun.  No, no, no, it just wouldn't do to publicly lend support to all those moderate, freedom-loving throngs of Iranians taking to the streets, risking life and limb for more liberty.  Not until the Iranians killed demonstrators on camera, the pictures went round the world, and criticism of himself mounted at home, did Obama put his hands on his hips and use the words, "appalled" and "outraged."

6.  Obama walked into the Oval Office with a veritable halo over his head.  In the eyes of his backers, he could say or do no wrong because he had evidently descended directly from heaven to return celestial order to our fallen world.  Oprah declared his tongue to be "dipped in the unvarnished truth."  Newsweek editor Evan Thomas averred that Obama "stands above the country and above the world as a sort of a God."

7.  And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America, having lost their morals, their work initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as "The One."

8.  A popular Tennessee Congresswoman, Marsha Blackburn (R), has become the first woman and the first Tennessean to add her name to the list of co-sponsors for Representative Bill Poseyís (R-FL) proposed amendment (HR-1503).
7/2/09 1.  "The point is the control from here.  We have never had that in the White House.  And we have had some control but not this control.  I mean I'm amazed, I'm amazed at you people who call for openness and transparency and have controlled..." veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas said Wednesday.

2.  The Washington Times says dictators and demagogues can rest easy on Obama's watch.  When thousands of Iranians flooded the streets of Tehran protesting a rigged election and were beaten and shot down by pro-regime thugs, Obama bided his time before making a series of noncommittal statements.  He seemed to hope it would all just go away.  However, when a socialist demagogue was ejected unceremoniously from Honduras on Sunday by his own government for trying to establish a presidency for life, Obama instantly sprang to his defense.

3.  From the Communist Party USA website comes the following statement on the Honduras Crisis.

4.  Obama recently expressed his love for "the Urdu poets," a piece of inspired BS that nobody in their right minds believed for a second.  But then Obama was narrowcasting to Pakistan, he thought, and Americans weren't supposed to be listening.  Yet character is revealed in those little snippets of Obama's mind -- his glorious fantasy life, his everlasting hope that somebody will fall for another piece of schtick, and his essential fraudulence as a human being.

5.  Jim Geraghty says ever since Barack Obama declared his candidacy for president, itís been easy -- and great fun -- to spotlight when his promises and statements come with "expiration dates."  The list is long: Public financing.  Renegotiating NAFTA.  His promise to support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies.  His inability to disown Rev. Jeremiah Wright.  The release of detainee photos.  Denouncing Turkey for genocide.

6.  Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar's politics have become the subject of blog commentary because the web auction site over the last week repeatedly scrubbed an offering of an allegedly genuine copy of Barack Obama's birth certificate -- from Mombasa, Kenya.
7/3/09 1.  Obama's View -- cartoon.

2.  David Limbaugh writes: All right already.  I won't call Obama a Marxist in this column.  Instead, I'll point to some signs that indicate that Barack and Karl might well be soul mates.  At least, they have similar attitudes about capital, labor and profits, er, surplus value.

3.  NewsReal blog reminds us is that one of the lessons history teaches us is that the further a country moves to the left, the more restrictive its press becomes.  In a true Marxist state, the press is an extension of the government and acts as the partyís official mouthpiece.  Competition, freedom to report accurately, and dissent are not allowed.  Punishments for transgressions are swift and severe.  The most egregious example of this was the former Soviet Union.

4.  Gene Healy, writing at the Cato Institute, quotes Barack Obama, who said, "I am a firm believer in the power of the free market."  The "irony" surrounding his public image as a collectivist, Obama insisted, was that "I actually would like to see a relatively light touch when it comes to the government."

5.  John Hinderaker says that Obama's "stimulus" plan mainly stimulated Democratic constituencies with great gobs of pork.  The web site, Innocent Bystanders, has done a service by plotting the actual unemployment rate against the Obama's  prediction of what would happen with and without the "stimulus."  Here is the latest, updated through June.

6.  Paul Williams says Barack Obama's rigged census will determine which states gain seats in Congress and which ones lose them.

7.  Here's something you won't hear about from the Obamedia -- the solar panels that Barack Obama and Joe Biden inspected before signing the Generational Theft Act in Denver, Colorado, will take 110 years to pay for themselves.
7/4/09 1.  Gerald Warner says Obamaís foreign policy blundering is now verging on the surreal. When Manuel Zelaya, the socialist president of Honduras, was overthrown, Obama first declared himself "deeply concerned," then denounced the coup as illegal; now, with the support of the Obama White House, the Organization of American States has given Honduras a three-day deadline to reinstate Zelaya.  This is madness.

2.  Obama says his first trip to Sub-Saharan Africa won't include a stop in his father's Kenyan homeland because of his view that the violence-plagued country still has a long way to go in becoming a free and open democracy.

3.  It turns out that the woman at a White House-sponsored healthcare forum who pulled the heartstrings of the media by asking Obama for help in treating her cancer -- as if she were channeling the afflicted who, in the New Testament, besought Jesus of Nazareth for a healing touch -- was an Obama plant.

4.  Barack Obamaís admonishments of the American people concerning how it is necessary for them to change their lifestyles, give away more of their money, downsize their living quarters and trade their SUVs for battery-charged golf carts, there is one person who has no intention of doing any of these things, and that is Barack Obama.
7/5/09 1.  I'm Obama'd out -- I'll be back tomorrow.
7/6/09 1.  HotAir blog reports that after listening to the Democrats screech for the last two years about the rule of law, this Jake Tapper report should be surprising Ö. but itís not.  Apparently, Barack Obama finds treaty ratification a little too complicated, and so he figures he can just commit the US to nuclear disarmament and bypass Congressional oversight.

2.  Jennifer Rubin says that those who suspect the president is engaged in a bit of dangerous self-delusion and denial about certain unpleasant realities regarding the threats from rogue states wonít be heartened to read that his current non-proliferation fetish stems, at least according to the New York Times, from his college infatuation with the nuclear freeze movement.

3.  I donít think Iíve ever seen my country so divided and depressed on the Fourth of July in my lifetime and -- no matter what Bob Dylan dreamed up -- Iím not young, forever or otherwise.  That includes the Vietnam War period when both sides at least had some conviction and excitement for the future, even if wrong.  Not so now.  The current situation is grim.

4.  America may be in the midst of a deep recession, and the nation may be facing unprecedented deficit spending and debt, but the White House will not reveal the cost to taxpayers of the European vacation that first lady Michelle Obama and her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, took last month.
7/7/09 1.  Anthem

2.  In his remarks to the National Committee of the Communist Party USA (CVPUSA), Sam Webb, the CPUSA's National Chair, said the following:

3.  Rosslyn Smith writes -- That brief statement of Barack Obama's last month seems every bit as risible as Richard Nixon's "I am not a crook", after one reads the article on the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Obama wrote for the student newspaper his senior year at Columbia.  The New York Times rediscovered the student article on Independence Day and seems to want to spin it as a sign of the president's deep nature.

4.  The hospital in Hawaii where Barack Obama claims he was born refuses to produce any documentation -- or even confirm the claim -- without permission of Obama himself.

5.  Jumping in Pools blog says that most liberals believe that national security is a threat to freedom, when in reality national security, is the first & last defense for freedom for the United States, and in most cases the entire world.  The national security of America is above and beyond almost every other nation on earth.
7/8/09 1.  Barack Obama is now hiding his short form Certification of Live Birth.  It appears that Obama has taken down his "Fight the Smears" website.

2.  Presidential Approval Index

3.  Obama refuses to admit the U. S. won the Cold War.

4.  Obama says he met his wife in class.

5.  The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Obama's Orwellian rhetoric has become absolutely pathological.  And it's become so blatant that you can almost guarantee that the truth is the exact opposite of what he says.

6.  Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said Wednesday.
7/9/09 1.  Yesterday's item, about "Fight the Smears" disappears, documented the changes that have recently been made to Obama's high-profile Internet site, "Fight the Smears," and also to the Internet Archive, also known as the "WayBackMachine.com" -- Obama has removed his bogus Certification of Live Birth from the Internet -- at the same time, the Internet Archive just happened to "lose" its archived copy.

2.  Just Yesterday, Robert Farley, a staff writer from the St. Petersberg Times, wrote an essay entitled, "Obama's birth certificate:  Final chapter.  This time we mean it!" in which Farley regurgitates many of the usual Obot arguments in defense of the Obamamessiah's bona fides and attacks those that question them.  In response to his tiresome screed, Ron Polarik, emailed Farley the following:
7/10/09 1.  These are the new rules of engagement for leathernecks in Afghanistan.

2.  Obama's newly appointed "Green" Czar, was as an admitted radical communist and black nationalist leader.

3.  Breaking -- At 7 AM, Fox News reporter, Major Garrett, reported that Obama has banned the foreign press from his press conference today in Italy.  The foreign press is furious.

4.  Obamaís health care proposal is, in effect, the repeal of the Medicare program as we know it.  The elderly will go from being the group with the most access to free medical care to the one with the least access.  Indeed, the principal impact of the Obama health care program will be to reduce sharply the medical services the elderly can use.

5.  The federal government's most secure prison has determined that two books written by Barack Obama contain material "potentially detrimental to national security" and rejected an inmate's request to read them.

6.  The Lid blog reports that over the course of his tenure, Obama has not only shown a disdain for the War Against Islamic Terrorists (also known as the War Against People Who Create Man-Made Disasters), but Obama has shown a total disregard for those who lost family members to acts of terror.

7.  What a difference a day makes.  Just yesterday, I posted a page (cursor down) from the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children that featured a letter from the White House affirming the hospital as Obama's birthplace (see next item).
