On April 27, 2011, the White House staff handed out to reporters a
certified copy of the longer form of the Certificate of Live Birth for
President Barack Obama. Shortly thereafter President Obama appeared
before the White House Press corps and confirmed that it was his birth
This is not the first time that the birth issue has been addressed by
the Obama team. Indeed, the issue of whether President Obama was born
in the United States has been the topic of much discussion since his
Presidential candidacy began. This stems from a provision of Article
Two of the United States Constitution that provides that “[n]o person
except a natural born Citizen . . . . shall be eligible to the Office of

Until now, historians generally consider our 15th President, James Buchanan to have been the worst President in American history. While in office from 1857-1861, he sat by and did nothing to halt the oncoming War Between the States and the sectional crisis that was tearing the nation apart. Fortunately for America, Buchanan chose not to run for reelection and went home, making way for Abraham Lincoln.
That was then, this is now. Barack Obama who is clearly the worst President since Buchanan has every intention of running for reelection. I believe five reasons highlight his failures and these are not just short term actions on his part, but part of a systematic plan to fundamentally alter the course of this country forever:
1. President Obama has put the United States so far in debt, mostly to China, it is hard to see how we can ever recover. His uncontrolled spending, flagrant disregard for any sort of financial restraint and complete ignorance of the importance of the dollar to a stable world economy have all put this country’s financial existence in jeopardy and hastened the day, currently four years hence when China will overtake America as the world’s largest economy.

Well, this has been an interesting week and not all bad. The world got to see Ben Bernanke admit, live and in color, that his Fed can’t do much about unemployment and then tell us the inflation that’s hurting every American family “won’t last long”. It would have been interesting to understand the logic that led him to that conclusion.
Larry Kudlow “Gold Slams Bernanke” thinks there’s more wishful thinking than logic involved.
On a brighter note, Americans seem to be getting it with regard to the debt limit discussion. A poll released Wed shows 62% oppose raising the limit, even at risk of government shutdown. Unfortunately, some Senators don’t seem to have gotten it. The “Gang of Six” is looking for ways to roll over on the spending vs taxes issue.

President Barack Obama has officially launched his campaign for
reelection as President of the United States. His budget for his
campaign is one billion dollars.
So far, Democrats and Republicans agree on one thing about the 2012
election – it will be a referendum on the first term of President Obama.
This is not to say that issues like the deficit, spending, gas prices,
unemployment, and foreign wars will not be important. They will. But
those issues will only provide the backdrop for whether Americans want
to rehire President Obama for another four years. Read the rest of this entry »

This April 18th, 2011 will be one of those dates hated by school kids – because it will be part of the dreaded “essay question”. It’s still to be seen what the essay will describe – the beginning of America’s slide into oblivion or the beginning of her heroic escape from the yawning abyss of Euro-socialism.
One essay tied to 18 Apr 2011 can be written now “The End of Smoke and Mirrors”. The day when politicians could publish a bundle waste paper, label it a “budget” or a “recovery plan” and get away with it is gone. The markets and the nation of the world are out of patience and will no longer give the US the benefit of the doubt. If you haven’t read the “frank and open” statement from S&P conference call, I strongly recommend that you do and then read it to your Congressman.
The next hurdle is the debt ceiling. If the Congress and the Administration fail to agree to real spending reforms, expect to see more from the financial community and from other nations.
Did you know that S&P wasn’t the first to downgrade the US? Do you know who “Dagong” is? [read more]
Regardless of the side of the aisle on which your Congressman is seated, helping heshe to understand that IT’S TIME TO GET REAL would be a good idea.
