Bernie Madoff is presently awaiting trial after having operated a Ponzi Scheme for decades in plain sight which has resulted in a whole lot of rich people losing their savings after it collapsed to the tune of $50 billion. But, although that devastation did not occur overnight, to let the mainstream media, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the courts, and the "victims" tell it, they never even had a clue. And, our entire nation is facing just such an economic disaster and much more with the advancing, incoming Obama Administration.And people expect us to sit back, relax, and keep our mouths shut?!
That fact also begs the question, "Had there been even one person who had sounded the alarm about Madoff, would any of the gatekeepers have listened and believed?" Apparently not. But, in Madoff's case, now that his scheme is out in the open for all to see and people's lives and organizations have been turned upside down, the economic, political, and economic gatekeepers are waking up stunned, outraged, and ready to put him in jail before he has had a trial. However, it is much too late to have averted such overwhelming casualties strewn all over the place without any remedies.
(Did you notice the discrepancies?)
Woe to America! This time the sky really is falling.
It has started already! Barack Obama and his administration have no intention of working in a bipartisan way. That is, unless the Republicans continue to do it the DEMS' way to pass all of the DEMS' bills into law. So, if somebody tells me to be happy about Barack Obama moving into the White House, I'd have to say -- Ain't gonna happen. Except and unless this entire nation can be assured that we can trust all of our elected leaders to adhere to the rule of law and to fight hard(er) to uphold the United States Constitution, and to do it not in a mealy-mouthed way, either.
Years ago, I came to the conclusion that society can wait, because it never comes to a realization until it is too late. Not even our highly educated, rich elected officials and rich preachers have the mind combined which would ever amount to anything more than a grain of sand on a well-endowed beach. Moreover, are they all asleep at the switch even as the alarm bells have sounded in their ears? Are they all deaf, dumb, and blinded by the glare of Obama's spotlight? He knows what he is up to even if he believes that nobody else knows. And it has been a long time in the making but is now here. It is facing us and demanding attention.
Hear the Man Speak In Obama's Own Words (in part)
In various published interviews conducted over the years, Barack Obama has clearly articulated his thinking publicly, which should have activated the alarm bells but don't seem to have done so, even as he paid for development of a website to call people liars (i.e., Fight the Smears) who had only reported what he and others had said about him. Read on, and keep in mind these are only a small part of the inconsistencies Obama and his army of volunteers have tried to cover up and have tried harder to make them go away, as shown in quotes from his various published bios, as follows.
Newsmakers, Issue 4. Gale Group, 2007
"1985 Obama, 24 years old, moved to Chicago to take a job as a community organizer with the Calumet Community Religious Conference, which was trying to organize churches on the city's South Side into an activated force. His organization's strategy was inspired by the late activist Saul Alinsky, who taught a radical method of political action built on "agitation," or getting citizens so upset about their condition that they work actively to change it."
That article went on to state, "Obama's work in Chicago met with mixed results. Some African-American pastors did not trust him because he was working for an organization run by whites. Also, many told him that he could not effectively organize religious communities when he was not a part of a church. Obama began to attend services at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's South Side. He grew to consider its pastor, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., his spiritual mentor.
Obama headed a voter-registration drive in Chicago that helped the campaigns of presidential candidate Bill Clinton and United States Senate Carol Moseley Braun, elected first female african american Senator." [Note: That is speaking about "Project VOTE," which Obama denied having anything to do with when asked during the 2008 election campaign.]
The article also confirms that, in 1991, Obama worked at the Woods Fund and the Joyce Foundation (Chicago, IL). Obama was quoted telling Lizza of The New Republic, "I think that sometimes ordinary citizens are taught that decisions are made based on the public interest or grand principles, when in fact, what really moves things is money and votes and power." [Note: This is during the time Obama worked with Bill Ayers, but denied having any association with him.]
That article goes on to state that "In 2004, Obama and his wife took out a second mortgage on their home to pay for the campaign (U.S. Senate)." [Note: Both Obama and Michelle personally knew Resko and his realty firm at the time they needed "funds."]
And the article further states, "Columnist E.J. Dionne Jr. wrote in 2004 about Obama . . . His is a political mind that can incorporate the opposition's best arguments into his own -- by way of answering them -- and then take clear and unequivocal position. [He] can make staunchly progressive positions sound moderate by being quietly reasonable." [Note: The operative words are "sound moderate."]
Who is the Man, Obama? Does He know?
Newsmakers, Issue 4. Gale Group, 2007.
These puzzling discrepancies which feed into the many questions being raised by Americans are about Obama's birthplace and nationality status and much of it comes from out of his own written accounts as well as from various other published interviews with him. And, yet, those birth questions remain unresolved even as he is nearing Inauguration Day with access to the White House Oval Office as the President of the United States. So many important questions about Obama need to be sorted out along with his other political ideologies as yet unrevealed to the American people on a national level.
In regards to Obama's parentage, the above published bio source states, "Ann Dunham was 18 in 1959 when she married Barack Obama Sr. who was studying economics at the University of Hawaii. Their son, born in Hawaii in 1961. Barack Hussein Obama went to Harvard (1963) for a graduate degree . . . and returned to work in the Kenya government as an economist." (Re-read that portion)
The discrepancy concerning Obama's parents and his birth manifests in a different way in a fairly recent article, entitled, "A Mother's Story (The Well: cover story; Campaign '08/Obama) (Stanley Ann Soetoro) written by Amanda Ripley/Honolulu, April 21, 2008. She reported the following (in part),
"Mrs. Barack Obama Sr. --
Stanley Ann Dunham, born in 1942. On February 2, 1961, several months after they met, Obama's parents got married in Maui, according to divorce records. It was a Thursday. At that point, Ann was three months pregnant with Barack Obama II. Friends did not learn of the wedding until afterward. 'Nobody was invited,' says Abercrombie. The motivations behind the marriage remain a mystery, even to Obama."
Has this Relay Race Paid Off For Obama and The Black Race?
Now, don't start calling me a racist, if you don't know that I am American first and foremost. And my concern is more for the health of our nation. After all, there were two black men who ran for President before Obama. Nevertheless, I did not support or vote for them either, and it was not based on race. It was because of what I saw as their failure to qualify to become President of all the people in America as the very best representative of the free world. So, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton looked around and passed their batons to Obama and cheered him on to the finish line -- whether you like it or not -- for the Black people, as they proved on election night. Despite the many whites who also worked even harder to plant Obama in place, the Blacks cried out for their own victory and not for America, unless you remind them.
I don't mind telling you that I cannot get excited about having this Black President, because I have always prayerfully looked forward to having a man in that Office who has the highest integrity, ethics, and love of God and country. What's more, with that criteria in mind and given the choice, I would have much preferred Rev. Jesse or Rev. Al rather than Obama. I believe those two men do have a conscious and a recognition between right and wrong.
The Barack Way is to go out of the way to disregard the law. Breaking news has announced Obama's plans to sign a bill closing Gitmo the day he takes office. Yet, he has no idea what he will do with the terrorist prisoners housed there or what plans are available for future such prisoners. And what makes me the most angriest is hearing our officials blame themselves but excuse Obama for whatever wayward thing we have witnessed with our own eyes and ears. Go figure.
We are witnessing the deterioration and death of the fabric of America, because a Black man has had the audacity to run a game of hype and guilt on the nation. But will he really get away with it or will he become legit? Will he have his minions to push his way so that he can keep on changing the rule of law and circumventing the law to keep him (Obama) happy? Or will we be able to trust all of our elected leaders to remain true to working in the bipartisan fashion of the Constitution? But, do they even realize they have fallen away from keeping their oaths of office?
Every time politically astute citizens think Republicans are going to stand and fight against any of the DEMS plans that come up anathema to American values, they band together with the DEMS to help them push their plans through legislatively.
Even today's push to seat Roland Burris, appointed by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, under a cloud came about because the Senate changed the rules to appease Barack Obama. Wait until the news finally comes out about Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and the Illinois machine.
Instead of upholding justice and adhering to the rule of law, the Obama Administration comes in under grave questions so bad that, if the planners of the Washington, D.C. Inauguration commission placed all of the spot-a-pots right under that parade stand, itself, nobody would ever know the difference!
Americans have been betrayed! And it is all the more harder for us to take when we know that our trusted leaders have joined in the betrayal. If Obama was unable to get the Global Poverty Act bill passed to send over $500 billion to Africa, then what will stop him from sending taxpayer "bailout" dollars to fill the void? Who is keeping an eye on the checkbook and the vault? Where oh where is the money going as they tell Americans to strip down and like it. I don't like it!
But, do I know what I am talking about? Apart from the investigative documentations about Obama, I have been right about the National Black Baptist Convention USA (NBC USA Inc.) facing a downfall. I was right about the National Association for the Advancement of Colored (oops! pick your own designation) People (NAACP)facing a downfall, and I paid a dear price for being right when, at the time, my political and clergy colleagues called me everything but a child of God for sounding the warning against them, which they ignored.
During the 1980s and beyond, I was the only one in this nation during that time who had first publicly pointed out those aforestated organizations' lack of personal, spiritual, and financial accountability. But l had refused to be silenced by those in leadership regardless of what they tried to do to me and/or said about me. But those things I warned them about eventually happened. And, it has been my personal experience to have witnessed so many of my warnings come to fruition.
Read about the church and NAACP occurrences here. http://www.voiceink.blogspot.com/2008/08/dowell-archivenews-sundaysun1998.htmlEven now as then, I am being called a lot of profane names, but you can have at it, because the American people are entitled to know the truth about this man who would be President. And, I am not in a popularity contest. I am not soliciting any money from anybody or any organization as they continue to do even while crying poor mouth. And, most of all, this is not about me. It is all about the defense of America and the United States Constitution, especially coming from the top on down to the bottom.
We need to know there will be no dark-of-night moves by anybody in government, and especially by the Obama Administration, to attempt to overthrow our government.
The resultant fallout from Barack Obama's Blueprint for America along with help from his personal staff and volunteers, is going to splatter everyone and everything American, except those who have caused the explosion to happen. But, all of that will occur only if the gatekeepers of America fail to wake up in time to avert this oncoming constitutional crisis in the first place. And, if I cannot be expected to stand to tell the truth, even as I see it, then what good am I to those who need to know the truth, to say nothing of my ownself?
When our freedom of speech is cut off, the nation remains in the dark. When it is allowed to go forth but is distorted, the nation dies.
!!!!! COMING SOON !!!!
A revealing article to expose the symptoms which will further substantiate Barack Obama's Ongoing determination to create the breakout of American and Global Revolution once he becomes President, entitled, "Barack InSane Obama And Community Organizer Mentality." * The Union Workers and the Immigrants we have witnessed out in the streets blasting America were merely giving onlookers a dress rehearsal. Pay attention!!!
