Venezuala President Hugo Chavez has been good for a few laughs, like the picture above when on September 21, 2006 according to CNN.Com

“Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez tore into his U.S. counterpart and his U.N. hosts Wednesday, likening President Bush to the devil and telling the General Assembly that its system is “worthless.”

“The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush, who addressed the world body during its annual meeting Tuesday. “And it smells of sulfur still today.”

Come on y’all, you know that was funny. But now the joke is over and here is the punchline…

Russian warships heading to Cuba, 90 miles away from the United States, of course they’ve just completed a “whirlwind” romance with Hugo Chavez, who invited them.

It’s time to invade Venezuela. I know , it sounds imperialistic doesn’t it? 

Well I say it is no more imperialistic than invading Iraq. Pull all of our troops out of Iraq, reequip them, retool, and then invade Venezuela, make a permanent U.S. presence there, and hang that Latin / Marxist/ Socialist bastard!

Only this time, let’s not make the same mistake we did with Saddam. This time, no trial, no ceremonial bureaucratic bull, invade, hang him, and then build our base.

After all if we are to be imperialists, why not be imperialist closer to home, where the oil is more accessible? 

A permanent base would also be beneficial in more than one aspect. If the United States were to station our military on our Southern border, to keep illegals out, and the Mexicans did not cooperate… well guess what? We have our Venezuela base to the South, and our military to the North, to help “persuade” them.

Of course I wouldn’t expect any of this happening in the next four years…according to an email I received from www.grassfire.org :

“With the appointment of Cecilia Munoz, an 18-year veteran of the National Council of La Raza, and Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, who opposes the border fence, it’s painfully obvious where Obama wants to steer the immigration debate…

These two appointments to key positions in his administration are serious cause for alarm for anyone who is concerned about protecting our safety and sovereignty.  How can someone who worked for an organization whose sole purpose was to systematically dismantle border  enforcement and undermine the immigration system,  suddenly represent the broader national interest?

With these appointments, Obama is tipping his hand and sending a message to Americans who want real border security that it simply isn’t going to happen on his watch.

Instead, we anticipate he will move quickly to press for comprehensive reform that throws open the doors to millions of illegals!”

We {i.e. you and I} may not be able to do anything about Chavez as individuals, but we can fight Obama politically, join the Resistance, click on the link below and sign the petition!

This happened during “W”‘s Farewell Tour of Iraq. I think it pretty much sums up his “Legacy”.

In other news Politico.Com is reporting that former Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain has stated that:

“In a surprising rebuke to the warriors who fought for him through tough times, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday sided with President-elect Barack Obama and scolded the Republican National Committee for fanning the Illinois corruption scandal. 

On ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos asked: “The chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mike Duncan, has been highly critical of the way President- elect Obama has dealt with this. 

“He’s had a statement every single day, saying that the Obama team should reveal all contacts they’ve had with Governor [Rod] Blagojevich. He says that Obama’s promise of transparency to the American people is now being tested. Do you agree with that?” 

“McCain replied: “I think that the Obama campaign should and will give all information necessary. You know, in all due respect to the Republican National Committee and anybody — right now, I think we should try to be working constructively together, not only on an issue such as this, but on the economy stimulus package, reforms that are necessary. And so, I don’t know all the details of the relationship between President-elect Obama’s campaign or his people and the governor of Illinois, but I have some confidence that all the information will come out. It always does, it seems to me.” 

Quick someone get another shoe.

Yet another Illinois Governor has been arrested on charges of corruption. According to the Chicago Tribune, this was no ordinary Illinois corruption case…

“Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested Tuesday for what U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald called a “political corruption crime spree” that included attempts to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama.”

Blagojevich and Harris were named in a federal criminal complaint that alleged a wide-ranging criminal conspiracy aimed at providing financial benefits to the governor, his political fund and to his wife, First Lady Patricia Blagojevich.

Blagojevich was taken into federal custody by FBI agents at his North Side home Tuesday morning—one day shy of his 52nd birthday.

The arrests dealt a tumultuous blow to Illinois government, at once raising questions about the leadership of the state and the fate of the open Senate seat—which the governor alone has the power to fill under the state law.”

According to Bloomberg.com President Elect Obama has denied any connection to Blagojevich:

“I had no contact with the governor or his office and so I was not aware of what was happening, ” Obama told reporters today in Chicago. “It’s a sad day for Illinois. Beyond that, I don’t think it’s appropriate to comment.”

But trancripts from secret wiretaps show a clearly jilted Blagojevich.

WARNING IF FOUL LANGUAGE OFFENDS YOU STOP READING NOW!…

According to The Smoking Gun website…

DECEMBER 9–The criminal complaint filed today against Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich contains a remarkable section detailing the Democratic politician’s alleged attempt to cash in on his ability to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. Attached to the U.S. District Court complaint is an FBI affidavit, excerpted below, alleging that Blagojevich was caught on wiretaps noting that the Senate seat “is a fucking valuable thing, you just don’t give it away for nothing.”

He was also recorded saying that unless “I get something real good,” he would appoint himself to the vacancy. “I’m going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain. You hear what I’m saying. And if I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll just take the Senate seat myself.”

According to surreptitiously recorded conversations, Blagojevich spoke with associates about the possibility of trading the Senate post for either an ambassadorship or a Cabinet post. The politician, according to the affidavit sworn by FBI Agent Daniel Cain, “analogized his situation to that of a sports agent shopping a potential free agent to various teams.”

During a wiretapped November 10 call, a frustrated and financially strapped Blagojevich referred to Obama as a “motherfucker” and said that he would not appoint an ally of the President-elect to the Senate vacancy if “I don’t get anything.” Referring to Obama, Blagojevich exclaimed, “Fuck him. For nothing? Fuck him.”

In a November 11 conversation, Blagojevich remarked that he knew Obama wanted Valerie Jarrett, a longtime confidante, to succeed him, “but they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation. Fuck them.”

Blagojevich, 51, and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested this morning on political corruption charges. While the affidavit does not specifically name the six prospective Senate candidates discussed by Blagojevic, Harris, and the governor’s aides, it appears that several are easily identified. “Senate Candidate 1” is Jarrett. “Senate Candidate 2” is Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Emil Jones, an Illinois state legislator, is “Senate Candidate 5.” And “Senate Candidate 6” appears to be J.P. Pritzker, a wealthy Chicago businessman. Additionally, Rahm Emanuel, the incoming White House chief of staff, is referred to in the affidavit as “President-elect Advisor.”

According to the ABC news Political Punch blog even though Obama said there was no connection between himself and Blagojevich:

“on November 23, 2008, his senior adviser David Axelrod appeared on Fox News Chicago and said something quite different.

While insisting that the President-elect had not expressed a favorite to replace him, and his inclination was to avoid being a “kingmaker,” Axelrod said, “I know he’s talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them.”

But wait. Obama’s “Truth Squad” must have been called back to active duty.  The Political Punch blog was later updated stating:

“(UPDATE: An Obama Transition Team aide says that Axelrod misspoke on Fox News Chicago.)

(UPDATE #2:  Axelrod this evening issued a statement saying. “I was mistaken when I told an interviewer last month that the President-elect has spoken directly to Governor Blagojevich about the Senate vacancy. They did not then or at any time discuss the subject.)”

Meanwhile, World Net Daily is asking, “What did Obama know about Blago’s demands?”…

“The corruption arrest of Gov. Rod Blagojevich is raising questions about what Sen. Barack Obama knew of the Illinois Democrat’s alleged activities, including his apparent offer to appoint Obama’s preferred candidate to serve in the U.S. Senate in return for “private sector” help from Obama.

“This is a burgeoning crisis for Obama that should shake his presidency to its core,” said Tom Fitton, chief of the Judicial Watch organization today.

“The criminal complaint filed today indicates that Obama and his team knew about Blagojevich’s efforts to sell Obama’s Senate seat,” he said.”

World Net Daily continues…

“It’s just the latest controversy to surround Obama’s campaign and election victory Nov. 4. There still are legal challenges pending before the U.S. Supreme Court that claim he is not eligible to be president because he fails to meet the Constitution’s requirement that only “natural-born” citizens be president.

Even as the court this week was rejecting one case, Donofrio v. Wells, another case was being scheduled for conference Friday.

The new case, Cort Wrotnowski v. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut secretary of state, also makes a dual citizenship argument. The case had been rejected by Justice Ruth Ginsburg Nov. 26 but then was resubmitted to Justice Antonin Scalia. There was no word of its fate for about 10 days, then the court’s website confirmed it has been distributed for Friday’s conference, a meeting at which the justices consider whether to take cases”

Yes, all of this should  shake the Obama administration to the core, but it won’t. Do you know why it won’t?

Because Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Media are afraid of what will happen if OBAMA is held accountable for his  actions and is required to obey the law…

The whole thing reads like a fictional DVD commercial that is pawned on after-hours television entitled “Yankees Gone Wild”.

Rest assured that regardless of the outcome, Illinois is carrying on a long tradition of  producing scum-bag politicians…

Thanks Supreme Court!

The Supreme Court refused to hear a case of eligibility regarding Obama’s citizenship today.

According to World Net Daily.Com:

“Not even the U.S. Supreme Court can kill the dispute that has developed over Sen. Barack Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office based on questions raised over his birthplace and citizenship and his steadfast refusal to provide documentation on the issue.

The high court today denied a request to listen to arguments in a case, Donofrio v. Wells, from New Jersey that addressed the issues. But literally within minutes, the court’s website confirmed that another conference is scheduled for Friday on another case raising the same worries.

The case of Leo C. Donofrio v. New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells claimed Obama does not meet the Constitution’s Article 2, Section 1 “natural-born citizen” requirement for president because of his dual citizenship at birth.

The new case, Cort Wrotnowski v. Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut secretary of state, also makes a dual citizenship argument. It had been rejected by Justice Ruth Ginsburg Nov. 26 but then was resubmitted to Justice Antonin Scalia. There was no word of its fate for about 10 days, then today the court’s website confirmed it has been distributed for Friday’s conference, a meeting at which the justices consider whether to take cases. “

OK. What does the Constitution say about who is eligible to run for President of the United States?

“The Constitution requires that a candidate for the presidency must be a “natural-born” citizen of the United States, at least 35 years of age, and a resident of the United States for at least 14 years.”

And what is the job of the Supreme Court?

The Court is the highest tribunal in the Nation for all cases and    controversies arising under the Constitution or the laws of the United States.”

So, apparently even though the Constitution clearly requires that only a 35 year old, natural born citizen who has resided in the United States for 14 years can be president and despite the fact that the Supreme Court’s job is to tackle, controversial Constitutional issues, the Supreme Court has decided that the issue of Barack Obama’s citizenship is too controversial!

They have agreed to cover the topic of a similar case on Friday, but I hold no great expectations for these black robed activist cowardly jug heads.

PETITION FOR PUBLIC RELEASE OF
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE

To: Electoral College, Congress of the United States, Federal Elections Commission, U.S. Supreme Court, President of the United States, other controlling legal authorities

Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;

Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;

Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;

Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;

Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama’s birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;

Whereas, concerns that our government is not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections;

Governor Matt Blunt, fresh off of the trail of selling Missouri off to Kansas via The Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area has been appointed to the board of a company that sells junk automobiles. 

I think that about says everything that needs to be said. From CNN

“NEW YORK (Associated Press) – Copart Inc., a junk-car auction service, on Friday said it named outgoing Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt to its board.

Blunt’s appointment is effective Jan. 13, following his departure from public office.

Copart said it also named Blunt, who opted to not run for re-election as Missouri’s governor, to the board’s nominating and governance committee”

Cell phone ban proposed

JEFFERSON CITY | Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle prefiled bills this week to banish cell phones from Missouri roadways.

Reps. Joe Smith, a St. Charles Republican, and Talibdin El-Amin, a St. Louis Democrat, have nearly identical bills that would ban drivers from using cell phones unless the phones have hands-free devices, such as a Bluetooth receiver.

The bans would not apply to drivers using their phones in emergency situations or emergency officials using phones as part of their duties.

Violators would face fines of $25 on their first offense and $50 on their second.”

Well , Well Well, I should’ve known that this man would have been involved in such a proposal…

Talibdin El-Amin’s other legislative proposals have included a forced slavery apology on Missouri citizens, as well as a proposed ban on baking soda.

The economy is in the dumps and this is the best that Missouri’s legislators have to offer? A cell phone ban on Missouri’s highways?

Speaking of Missouri highways…

Yesterday’s Southeast Missourian newspaper carried a story by Peg McNichol entitled:

“A dangerous drive: After 15 years, Highway 34 still awaiting improvements”

“PDF: 1997 through 2001 crash statistics for Highway 34 (1 megabytes)

For Missouri state trooper Aaron Harrison, making Highway 34 safer can’t happen quickly enough.

He was among those who responded to the call after a 16-year-old Glenallen, Mo., boy died when his car slid off a curve last month.

“I have seen a lot of it. It doesn’t get any better,” Harrison said Wednesday.

Small floral crosses and beribboned bouquets dot the edges of Highway 34, each a memorial to someone who died along the roadway. A new one marks the road near where Cole Benfield died Nov. 19. “

As I stated in the comments section of the online article, it’s not going to get any better either. Outgoing State Representative Rod Jetton who represents Missouri’s 156th district, was elected by bringing attention to the poor conditions of Missouri’s highways, yet did virtually nothing to improve them.

Through a vicious negative attack campaign, his protege’ Shelley Keeney was elected over Democrat Michael Winder, who lost a sister on Hwy 34, and would have been more motivated to fight for the improvement of the roads in our district.

Rod Jetton of course, became a political ally of Talibdin El-Amin, by Co-sponsoring his slavery apology bill in 2006.

From : http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6145787.html

“CHICAGO — The U.S. Supreme Court will consider Friday whether to take up a lawsuit challenging President-elect Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship, a continuation of a New Jersey case embraced by some opponents of Obama’s election.

The meeting of justices will coincide with a vigil by the filer’s supporters in Washington on the steps of the nation’s highest court.

The suit originally sought to stay the election, and was filed on behalf of Leo Donofrio against New Jersey Secretary of State Nina Mitchell Wells.

Legal experts say the appeal has little chance of succeeding, despite appearing on the court’s schedule. Legal records show it is only the tip of an iceberg of nationwide efforts seeking to derail Obama’s election over accusations that he either wasn’t born a U.S. citizen or that he later renounced his citizenship in Indonesia.

The Obama campaign has maintained that he was born in Hawaii, has an authentic birth certificate, and is a “natural-born” U.S. citizen. Hawaiian officials agree.

Among those filing lawsuits is Alan Keyes, who lost to Obama in the 2004 Illinois Senate race. Keyes’ suit seeks to halt certification of votes in California. Another suit by a Kentucky man seeks to have a federal judge review Obama’s original birth certificate, which Hawaiian officials say is locked in a state vault.

Other suits have been filed by Andy Martin, whose case was dismissed in Hawaii, and by an Ohio man whose case also was dismissed. Five more suits, all later dismissed, were filed in Hawaii by a person who is currently suing the “Peoples Association of Human, Animals Conceived God/s and Religions, John McCain (and) USA Govt.” The plaintiff previously sought to sue Wikipedia and “All News Media.”

The most famous case questioning Obama’s citizenship was filed in Pennsylvania in August on behalf of Philip J. Berg and sought to enjoin the Democratic National Committee from nominating Obama. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to accept the case. Earlier, a federal judge rejected it for “lack of standing” — ruling that Berg had no legal right to sue. In cases like this, judges sometimes believe the matter is best left to political institutions, such as the Electoral College or Congress, said legal scholar Eugene Volokh of the University of California at Los Angeles.

The remaining case with the highest profile is Donofrio vs. Wells. Because it was distributed by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to other justices for conference, it gained undue importance for people unschooled in how the court works, Volokh said.

Many petitioners seeking stays of pending events have their cases distributed to the full court, he said. Of those, Volokh found that 782 were denied in the last eight years while just 60 were heard — and not all of those ultimately were successful.”

Well go figure. Obama’s birth certificate is locked in a vault, and we’re all supposed to believe what the State Government of Hawaii tells us, without looking at it. It’s really simple, SHOW US THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE!

Oh well we can count on the Republican Party to jump on board and help us out on this right? WRONG! The Republican Party’s two biggest mouthpieces are urging people not to pursue this issue.

http://nomoreparations.blogspot.com  is reporting that…

The Republican Party is Obama’s Best Friend

In case you don’t recognize these ‘characters’, the fathead, in the top photo, is Sean Hannity, the one in the bottom photo, is Rush Limbaugh………..they’re both traitors, in my opinion.

Why do I say this? Simple: To both of these Neocon talk show hosts, the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of scrap paper.

Take the growing outrage over the secrecy of Obama’s birth certificate; both of these clowns say that it’s a non issue.

I heard Limbaugh make this comment before the election. He said that the issue, of Obama’s birthplace, wasn’t worth fighting. He went on to say that we’d be better off concentrating on issues that we could do something about. Now this may not be the exact words of Limbaugh, however, the content is the same.

What’s interesting, is that, I called the RNC two days before and voiced my opinion on this matter. Now of course, I didn’t get to talk to a real person, just a voicemail. I told them, or the machine, that if they wanted to win the election, they’d better verbally pound Obama on his birth certificate……relentlessly.

As I said, two days later Limbaugh commented of “kooks” that had been leaving him E mails. E mails from people urging him to expose this matter of Obama’s place of birth. He went on to say something like, ” there’s no way we can prove that he was born in Kenya, so why mess with it.”. Like I said this is not a direct quote, but the content is the same.

Today, I heard Hannity speaking on the same subject. His response is even worse than Limbaugh’s. Hannity rambled on about how it’s an issue, but it’s not an issue. He went on to say that he is taking Obama and his family ‘at their word’ that he was born in the U.S.!

The one thing that Hannity and Limbaugh are apparently not worried about defending is the Constitution. Apparently, They would rather make nice than do their duty as so called ‘ conservatives’: defending the Constitution!

I wonder if they’re helping the RNC out of the goodness of their hearts or is the RNC paying them for their help?”

I think that this is fairly simple to figure out. They’re scared to death that Obama is going to push the “Fairness Doctrine” so they are trying to gain favor with him.

Why?

So that they can continue to espouse the Republican ideals of Conservatism? No. So that they continue to earn their millions by telling you how to think.  It’s not about ideals with these fools, it’s about dollars.

What can you do? Join the Resistance! Visit WWW.GRASSFIRE.ORG  and make a stand.
