It's more like the same old change
we've heard jingling in the pockets of politicians since the beginning
of time. And it's the same dirty change that has landed the bums
in jail since the beginning of democracy.
Barack Obama hasn't
even made history yet by getting into the White House, but he's already
making history for the number of serious scandals between his election
and his inauguration.
First, it was Illinois Gov. Rod
Blagojevich, Obama's old pal and political ally. Now New Mexico
Gov. Bill Richardson -- Obama's pick for commerce secretary -- bails out
amid a grand jury investigation into how a major political donor snared
a lucrative contract from the state.
At this rate, Obama will be
lucky to have any friends left after his first 100 days in office.
Obama Tried Bribing Arlen Specter's Opponent
Judicial Watch is
reporting a major political scandal orchestrated by the Obama
Administration. A popular Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania
has revealed that the White House tried bribing him to drop out of the
upcoming U.S. Senate race.
Congressman Joe Sestak said in a
television news show that the White House offered him a top federal job
in an effort to keep him from challenging Senator Arlen Specter in the
state's Democratic primary. A five-term incumbent, Specter
switched from Republican to Democrat last spring after giving Obama the
critical vote for his disastrous and fraud-infested $787 billion
Obama clearly wants to return the favor by
helping the controversial lawmaker keep his job. In fact, Obama
endorsed Specter at the White House and has raised money for the
80-year-old lawmaker. Besides Obama, many top Democratic leaders
have also tried to dissuade Sestak, a retired Navy admiral, from
However, attempting to bribe a legislator
with a "high-ranking" federal job is deplorable and downright unethical
to say the least. Obviously this is why Obama and his White House
staff are enraged that Sestak disclosed the unscrupulous backdoor offer
to keep him out of the upcoming Democratic primary.
Specter bailed on Republicans Obama assured the contentious lawmaker
he'd do everything in his power to help him win reelection if he
switched parties. The White House assured Specter there was no
Democrat in a position to make a realistic challenge against him and
that he had the "full backing" of Obama, which includes campaigning and
fundraising by the commander-in-chief.
That plan evidently blew
up in Obama's face so he resorted to bribery. Not only does
Specter face stiff competition from Sestak in the Democratic primary,
the Republican (former Congressman Pat Toomey) expected to make the
general election leads both Specter and Sestak in head-to-head match-ups
by about ten points.

Obama’s Crony Capitalism
"No more bailouts, no more greed, how many
profits do you need?" That’s been a signature chant of community
organizers and Big Labor thugs who have stormed bank offices and
financial executives’ private homes decrying corporate welfare over the
past several months. But now that the federal government and a
coalition of big banking interests are poised to bail out a crony
Chicago bank with longtime ties to the Obama administration,
Saul Alinsky’s avenging angels
are nowhere to be found.
Michelle Malking says ShoreBank is a
Windy City investment bank with all the right (or, rather, left) ties.
Its stated progressive mission isn’t merely to make good lending
decisions, but to engage in Barack Obama-esque social engineering to
"create economic equity and a healthy environment." The ShoreBank
corporate slogan: "Let’s change the world."
The company website
features a video of Obama in Kenya championing ShoreBank microlending
projects overseas. ShoreBank has also touted itself as a "green"
bank from its founding days -- promoting dubious carbon credit programs,
subjecting new borrowers to eco-litmus tests ("we look at how you use
water, how you recover water and clean it, how you use energy, if you
produce clean energy, how you manage CO2, whether you are offsetting CO2
that your product produces, if you are using sustainably produced
materials") and encouraging customers to participate in "EcoDeposits" to
"directly support the green agenda."
Social and environmental
justice may make for good Volvo bumper stickers. They do not,
however, make for a good bottom line. While the bank was on
do-gooder missions around the world, business at home was in trouble.
As The Wall Street Journal reported, "Losses racked up during the
recession have left the bank facing a demand to raise new capital or
face likely closure by regulators."
Enter the Chicago political
friends and family of ShoreBank. The ties are long and deep, as
the Central Illinois 9/12 Project has been chronicling for months:
ShoreBank co-founder Jan Piercy was a Wellesley College roommate of
Hillary Clinton’s, who has long supported the bank along with former
president Bill Clinton.
Former ShoreBank Vice Chairman Bob Nash worked for Mrs. Clinton’s
presidential bid as deputy campaign manager. Board of
Directors member Howard Stanback is a Hyde Park neighborhood pal of
Obama, who served with Stanback on the board of the radical
(where Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers also sat).

presidential campaign, and co-founder Mary Houghton reportedly gave
advice to Obama’s late mother about small business lending issues.
In other words: ShoreBank is too politically
connected to fail.
And now you, the taxpayer, may be on the hook
for helping its cronies engineer a special rescue. Fox Business
News reported this week that a consortium of large lenders -- including
Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and GE Capital -- have partnered with the feds
to pitch in a combined $200 million public-private bailout. (In
addition, Illinois Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky has been crusading for a
state-level bailout of the beleaguered bank.) The buzz on both
Wall Street and Capitol Hill is that Goldman and perhaps others in the
public-private partnership were pressured to lend a hand.
wouldn’t be the first time that businesses have felt the Obama squeeze.
And it wouldn’t be the first time that Democrats exploited the financial
crisis to milk public money for their banking cronies.
laggardly House Ethics Committee is still investigating Democrat
California Rep. Maxine Waters, who had a personal and financial stake in
Boston-based OneUnited, a minority bank that received $12 million in
TARP bailout money under smelly circumstances. The bank’s
executives donated $12,500 to her congressional campaigns. Her
husband, Sidney Williams, was an investor in one of the banks that
merged into OneUnited. Waters secured meetings between OneUnited
execs and Treasury Department officials.
That probe has dragged
on for nearly a year, which doesn’t bode well for fresh GOP demands for
an investigation into the shady ShoreBank bailout. House Financial
Services Committee ranking minority member Spencer Bachus, R-Ala., has
demanded that the White House cough up documentation about any possible
overt contact with Goldman about the deal.
Team Obama is smarter
than that, of course. To quote Obama’s environmental czar Carol
Browner, who pressured auto industry execs last year to cooperate on a
fuel standards increase, they know "to put nothing in writing, ever."
The fingerprints may be missing, but the stench of the Chicago Way
is impossible to cover up.

Just yesterday, Obama held another fun-filled White House event,
a picnic for Congress members, complete with hot dogs, cold beverages
and a fire pit.
All told, during the last seven weeks of spewing
oil and rampant unemployment, he has frolicked and danced through three
major White House music parties:

the outsiders is getting louder.

More From The "White House Insider"
to post communications from a "White House Insider, who says the
Democratic Party has lost its collective mind -- and it’s going to get
much worse before it gets better.
This is a long interview, and well
worth reading, but this
extract has the juicy stuff.
So what about the coming
scandal that you have stated earlier is going to be hitting the White
House? What about it?
Is it still out there? Is it
still developing? Stupid question…sorry, but -- yeah of course
it’s still out there. I would let you know if I heard different.
There have been a few more media reports circling the situation.
As is most often the case, one investigation will open up another and
then the snowball takes off down the hill. That is starting to
happen now. It’s big. It’s messy. And if it gets back
to the White House, it will be a very significant problem for the
administration. It is my understanding they are already working
very hard to distance the president. That is what always happens,
but once it is happening, it also confirms that there really is an issue
So this thing -- this "scandal," might not
actually reach the president? I think it will, and so do
others aware of the general situation, but a White House affords a lot
of protection. The Obama White House is currently utilizing all of
those protective powers at the moment -- that is what signaled to me
that this was legit. That is when I realized this scandal was
really out there and gathering momentum. When certain figures in
an administration go into action…the campaign to protect the president
from the situation becomes known.
So the Republicans are
aware of the situation? Oh yeah. At least certain
members are, and likely some who have very specific details. It is
no casual thing to have incoming members of a new Republican House
majority telling the media that the White House needs to make certain it
doesn’t start shredding documents…well, that’s about as bold a
declaration as one makes in this town. Those Republicans are
making it clear to the Obama White House that they know something -- and
are willing to go after them over it. I just don’t think President
Obama fully understands or appreciates what is going to be coming at him
in 2011. The scrutiny and the power that a Republican Congress now
holds over him is going to be immense. I’m not exaggerating when I
say it might very well break this president.
president? Yeah. President Obama is already trying to
balance on a very thin edge. His confidence is shattered. His lack
of experience fully realized. Staff have abandoned him -- or were
forced out. Some in the media are actually starting to question
him. The big money donors for the party are starting to reconsider
their investment. The American voters rejected his agenda by
historical proportions. Nancy Pelosi continues to pose a threat
both as a national figure that the vast majority of Americans despise,
as well as for what she knows regarding certain White House dealings…and
now a Congress with the authority to demand answers? To hold
investigations? Does anyone really think this president has the
strength to endure this kind of political environment?
Obama Lauds Brute
says Obama doesn't seem to shy away from the divisive social and
cultural topics that Americans are debating in their living rooms, gyms
Obama has spoken out about the responsibility of
fathers to raise their children, has condemned the arrest of a prominent
black Harvard professor who said he was the victim of racial profiling,
was heard chastising Kanye West for the rapper's rude behavior at the
MTV Video Music Awards and recently said his views on gay marriage were
"evolving" from his previous opposition.
On Monday, the buzz was
about how Obama had weighed in on the alleged redemption of Michael
Vick. Obama phoned the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles to praise
the team for giving a second chance to the quarterback, who is again a

role in a horrific dog fighting ring that killed pit bulls by

were almost exclusively funded by Vick. Additionally, Vicks associates
fingered Vick in the execution of eight dogs that performed poorly in
test fighting sessions. Vick's associates told investigators that Vick
participated in killing the dogs, which were hung or drowned.
Obama has joined the likes of

who defended Vick on the grounds that murdering man's best friend was a

West Virginia, had a few words about Vick's "barbaric" actions.
Our Condescenders In Chief
While one Obama says we can't leave the eating
habits of kids up to their own parents, another Obama congratulates a
football team for hiring a quarterback with a criminal past. What to
make of all this, and the uproar that has followed both?
football are private affairs, and they're as often as not connected to
each other. We pig out when we watch football. They're both a matter of
individual taste. But thanks to Congressional hearings on steroid use
among athletes, ObamaCare's overreach into our health care, the FDA, the
state near monopoly on primary education, and so forth and so on, both
have become increasingly public issues, and more and more subject to
government intervention and meddling.
It's telling in some ways
that Obama even called up Philadelphia Eagles' owner Jeff Lurie in the
first place. They were mainly discussing the use of alternative energy
at the Eagles' home stadium, not Michael Vick's second chance. Why
should Obama give a fig about what sort of energy gets used at a sports
stadium? Because he's a global warming zealot, and he actually thinks
that his election will be marked as the time when the earth began to
heal, because of his enlightened energy policies. How the Eagles power
their lights and heat their hot dogs is all part of the system in which
he, more than most, feels drawn to intervene.
That Obama weighed
in on Vick's second chance with the Eagles makes us squirm for several
reasons. One, Vick's appalling crimes put him outside the norm for
sports criminals. Most sports criminals hurt themselves, and it usually
costs them their careers. We are accustomed to sports figures using
drugs, abusing spouses, gambling and assorted other sordid activities.
We're not accustomed to sports heroes torturing and murdering animals
for fun and profit, but that's what Michael Vick confessed to doing, and
for which he served time. I'm fine with Vick getting his second chance
even on the NFL team I loathe the most, but no one should be under any
illusions about why the Eagles picked him up. Other teams, including the
Falcons who arguably lost out the most when he went to prison, passed on
Vick because they didn't want their brands associated with him.
Quarterbacks are the faces of NFL franchises. Before going to prison,
Vick was a star among stars for his speed and elusiveness. He was the
most electrifying player on the field.
Vick the dog torturer
makes for a disturbing front man, regardless of how incredible his play
is going forward. The Eagles picked him up mostly because they could.
They rolled the dice. Vick 2.0 unexpectedly turned out to be better
after his stint in prison than he was before. He seems to be making
better decisions, and if anything his passing arm is much stronger than
before. He's turning out to be a brilliant quarterback. Lucky for the
Eagles, then. But his second chance wasn't done out of altruism. The
Eagles want to win, and Vick is helping them do that. Both are making
millions on the deal, which is fine.
Obama did not call up the
owners of, say, the Texas Rangers to congratulate them for giving Josh
Hamilton a second chance. Hamilton led that team to its first World
Series appearance in its history. But Hamilton made some bad choices in
life, and had his early MLB career derailed by drug and alcohol
addiction. The Rangers took a chance on him and it paid off: He was
brilliant at the plate in the 2010 American League playoffs, to the
point that the New York Yankees wouldn't even pitch to him in the ALCS.
Where was Obama's call to Nolan Ryan, congratulating him for giving
Hamilton a second chance?

"These regulatory approvals pave
the way for safe, new production of oil and gas resources in the Gulf of

oversees offshore drilling.
Obama won't issue permits to American companies because of what "might

permit to a project using "the first ever deepwater floating production
storage facility in the Gulf of Mexico."
Shocker! Government Spending Topped
$11 Trillion Last Year
Terence P. Jeffrey says that if you look at the
historical tables attached to Obama's latest budget proposal, they say
the federal government took in $2.165 trillion in revenues in fiscal
2010 and spent $3.720 trillion, leaving a federal deficit of
approximately $1.555 trillion.
This looks like a horror story, of
course. Yet the true story is more horrible. To find that
story, you have to look at the financial statements quietly posted by
the U.S. Treasury on the website of the Financial Management Service.
These documents show the actual accounting for the federal government in
much the same way your bank statements show the actual accounting for
The Daily Treasury Statement published on Sept.
30, 2010 -- the last day of fiscal year 2010 -- itemized all the revenue
the government received in that fiscal year and all the money it spent.
True federal spending for fiscal 2010, the Treasury statement said,
was $11.5 trillion ($11,537,305,000,000.00).
Now, how can the
White House budget claim federal spending was only $3.720 trillion in
fiscal 2010, when the Treasury says it was $11.5 trillion?
biggest reason is because the spending tables produced by the Office of
Management and Budget to accompany the White House budget do not count
the money the Treasury is obligated to disburse in any given fiscal year
to pay off old Treasury securities -- that is, old loans -- that come
due in that year.
In fiscal year 2010, according to the Treasury
statement, $7.207 trillion ($7,206,965,000,000.00) in loans came due.
Paying off old loans is by far the greatest annual expense the federal
After the $7.207 trillion the Treasury spent
paying off old loans in fiscal 2010, the next two greatest expenses were
federal entitlement programs. Treasury spent $571.5 billion paying
Social Security benefits, and $513.7 billion paying Medicare benefits.
The fourth greatest federal expense was paying defense contractors, who
billed $399.1 billion for the year.
So, where did the government
find $11.5 trillion to pay its bills?
NewsMax is reporting that Barack Obama raised a
record-shattering $750 million on his way to winning the 2008
presidential election. But that stunning flood of cash has
triggered an investigation by the Federal Election Commission, which is
taking a detailed look at the campaign's records and transactions.
According to Roll Call, the audit of Obama's financial records began
two years ago. It was not required by law, since the Obama
campaign did not accept federal matching funds and funded itself
entirely with private donations. But allegations of improper
contributions, coupled with the FEC's suspicions of certain
transactions, led to the probe.
Obama recently officially
launched his 2012 campaign effort, and a representative there admitted
to Roll Call that a review was under way.
"The FEC is conducting
a routine review -- as is true with the McCain campaign, the Romney
campaign and many others -- to determine if they have any questions with
the information reported," Katie Hogan, deputy press secretary for
Obama's re-election campaign, told Roll Call. "Given that there
was an historic number of contributors and contributions -- nearly 4
million and over 9 million, respectively -- this takes time."
October 2008, Newsmax's Ken Timmerman reported that questions about the
source of Obama's amazing fundraising were already swirling around.
He reaped a stunning $150 million in campaign donations in September of
that year, bringing his total at the time to more than $600 million.
As Timmerman reported:
By Obama's own admission, more than half of
his contributions have come from small donors giving $200 or less.
But unlike John McCain's campaign, Obama won't release the names of
A Newsmax canvass of disclosed Obama campaign
donors shows worrisome anomalies, including outright violations of
federal election laws. For example, Obama has numerous donors who
have contributed well over the $4,600 federal election limit. Many
of these donors have never been contacted by the Obama campaign to
refund the excess amounts to them.
And more than 37,000 Obama
donations appear to be conversions of foreign currency.
to a Newsmax analysis of the Obama campaign data before the latest
figures were released, potential foreign currency donations could range
anywhere from $12.8 million to a stunning $63 million in all. With
the addition of $150 million raised in September, this amount could be
This is a joke!
It's well documented that the 2008
Obama campaign did not put in place address verification software that
would have routinely prevented most foreign donations. In effect
they were encouraging donations by foreign nationals. Here
is a report from the Washington Post -- and here's
one from the Washington Examiner.
And remember the $32,332.19
that came from two brothers living in a Hamas-controlled Palestinian
refugee camp in Rafah, GA (that's Gaza, not Georgia). The
Palestinian's $31,318 cash was part of a

accepted by the Obama campaign.
I predict that this FEC
investigation will be nothing but a whitewash.
Shock Report Says Obama Moved $85 Billion
Important to note is that the entry in this report
naming "Barack Hussein Obama II"
does not list him as the American President,
but as he is the only
person in the world having this exact name one would be hard pressed to
believe it could be anyone else.
The American leader’s ties with
Honduras, the Central American
country where this staggeringly huge deposit was made, are well known
with his supporting of the
2009 coup d'etat that ousted
Manual Zelaya in favor of a
right-wing military junta. Under Obama’s direct orders,
President Zelaya was
held at the US airbase outside Tegucigalpa
before being forcibly sent to San José, Costa Rica, a move that earned
Honduras an expulsion from the Organization of American States (OAS)
and shocked the entire Latin American World.
Zelaya had earned the wrath of both the US and
the right-wing thugs arrayed against him for his efforts to stem the
flow of drugs from South America to Mexico, none of which could reach
the American market without traveling through Honduras. Since
Zelaya’s ouster by Obama, however, Honduras is now described as a
"Drug Traffickers’ Paradise."
To where Obama gained access to a fortune that has
made him the richest man in the world we can glean from the
special report published last
week by London’s Observer newspaper wherein they detailed how one of the
United States largest banks named Wachovia was discovered to have
laundered over $500 Billion for Mexican and Colombian drug cartels.
According to the Observers report, an investigation
begun in 2006 after a
CIA-linked DC-9 aircraft made
an emergency landing in the Mexican port city of Ciudad del Carmen
carrying nearly 6 tons of cocaine also contained detailed financial
records linking some of Americans largest banks to the global trade.
Though US Federal Prosecutors wanted to indict many
powerful US banking executives, for what is described as the largest
drug related money laundering scheme in history, Obama overruled them
allowing just Wachovia to be prosecuted, and which rather than going to
trial they admitted guilt and paid a
$160 million fine, the largest
amount ever gained under the US bank secrecy act.

is reporting that solar-power startup
