Obama overheard – ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

Editor’s Note – We fret and moan now about the vast number of ways Obama has changed America ‘fundamentally’, here is a peak at how much worse it will be should Americans keep him in the White House. Be very afraid…

President Obama Asks Medvedev for ‘Space’ on Missile Defense — ‘After My Election I Have More Flexibility’

Presidents Obama and Medvedev of Russia chat in Seoul, S. Korea

By Jake Tapper

SEOUL, South Korea — At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him “space.”

The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.

The exchange:

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

When asked to explain what President Obama meant, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications Ben Rhodes told ABC News that there is room for the U.S. and Russia to reach an accommodation, but “there is a lot of rhetoric around this issue — there always is — in both countries.

A senior administration official tells ABC News: “this is a political year in which the Russians just had an election, we’re about to have a presidential and congressional elections — this is not the kind of year in which we’re going to resolve incredibly complicated issue like this. So there’s an advantage to pulling back and letting the technical experts work on this as the president has been saying.”

MSM – "We the People" and the Constitution?…cover the news!

Editor’s Note – Apparently ‘news’ is a subjective term. If you only watch the MSM, how would you know anything? We at SUA see better coverage from Russia and the Middle East…not on their issues…on ours!

Even a Democrat is suing to have Obama vetted. In Florida:

Another lawsuit has been filed asking state officials to remove Barack Obama’s name from the 2012 election ballot because he has not documented that he is eligible for the office, but this case in Florida has a twist: It was brought by a Democrat.

The case was filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Democrat Michael Voeltz, “a registered member of the Democrat Party, voter, and taxpayer in Broward County, who was an eligible elector for the Florida Primary of Jan. 31, 2012.”

Wake up folks, time to rattle the phones at the MSM. Remember, this is only one of soooo many stories you have not heard yet! Embargo the MSM!

Media blackout continues on Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation

‘This will be an historic event in Arizona. Please come and be a part of history. The public is invited to attend. Come early. Learn the truth.’

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (l) and Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo will hold a press conference on Saturday, March 31, at 1 p.m. at the Church on the Green to present their findings and updates regarding Obama’s fraudulent Selective Service System registration form and Certificate of Live Birth.

SURPRISE – While the media blackout continues over the largest story in American history, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is stunned, but undaunted, and said his Cold Case Posse will continue to pursue its investigation into President Barack Obama’s fraudulent Certificate of Live Birth as well as his Selective Service registration, both of which it has deemed forgeries.

Although the March 1 press conference presenting the Cold Case Posse’s preliminary findings was somewhat well-attended, the mainstream media made it abundantly clear they were more interested in whether the investigation was politically motivated than in the evidence presented.

Arpaio finds the media blackout astounding, noting the media otherwise reports “every time I go to the toilet.”

Since Arpaio’s investigation began at the behest of a petition signed by 250 Surprise Tea Partiers last year, the Surprise and Sun City West Tea Parties have teamed up to host a public press conference at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, at the Church on the Green, 19051 R.H. Johnson Blvd., Sun City West, where Arpaio and Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo will present their preliminary findings and updates.

This is the information the national media refuses to report, which Zullo learned during the investigation was because the media had been threatened with FTC investigations and commentators were threatened with their jobs if they dared report on the Cold Case Posse’s findings of forgery and fraud associated with Obama’s documents.

Zullo stated the threats even caused some to quit their positions “over safety concerns for their families.”

A petition will be circulated during the event requesting the Arizona State Legislature, in conjunction with Secretary of State Ken Bennett, take action requiring the Democratic National Committee to provide documentation satisfactory to Arpaio and the Cold Case Posse that validates Obama’s true identity and eligibility before he can be placed on the 2012 ballot in Arizona.

The Tea Parties hosting the event stated, “This will be an historic event in Arizona. Please come and be a part of history. The public is invited to attend. Come early. Learn the truth.”

ME Policy – Help the MB, shun the Syrian freedom fighters and Israel…

Editor’s Note -One Point Five Billion? Let’s repeat… $1.5 BILLION to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Let’s take a moment to ponder. We invested in unknowns in Libya who turned out to be allied with al-Qaeda, and we sent money, and blasted the heck out of Qaddafi.

We helped overturn our ally Mubarak in Egypt, creating a huge vacuum sure to be filled by the Muslim Brotherhood and sure to destabilize their relationship with Israel. But we will not help the Sunni majority in Syria.

Fears of aiding those freedom loving, secular leaning Syrians, because al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood corrupted the SNC, and were likely to have a big influence following al-Assad’s impending implosion, stop us from helping a real “liberation” movement.

This “liberation” movement of “freedom fighters” who openly decry any Islamic radicalism is not good? Yet, in Libya and Egypt it is…what?

Does Hillary Clinton and Obama know that the true “freedom fighters” in Syria want to establish a permanent peace with Israel, and openly declare it once they re-claim their nation?

Remember when James Clapper said the MB was secular? Does this administration have any clue at all? Where is the consistency and common sense, and worst of all, why is Israel always an after thought in these processes?

Help the Syrian freedom fighters? - No, no, no...that might help Israel...

Hillary Clinton greenlights $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt

By Vicky Nissen

Examiner

According to the Washington Post, the Obama administration told Congress on Thursday it will waive democracy requirements for Egypt in order to release up to $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt.  This is despite concerns that the country is backsliding on commitments it made to democratic governance and rule of law. A senior State Department official said the decisions “reflect our overarching goal: to maintain our strategic partnership with an Egypt made stronger and more stable by a successful transition to democracy.”

Prior to this decision, according to Fox News,  Congress blocked the deal due to concerns about the anti-democracy movement that is now griping that country. However,  Secretary Hillary Clinton announced, afterwards, that she will issue a waiver to circumvent the will of Congress.  Clinton will certify that Egypt is meeting its obligations under its peace treaty with Israel and that means $1.5 billion of American tax dollars will soon start flowing to the Egyptian government and, yes, that means to the Muslim brotherhood. The quarrel between the military and the Brotherhood adds to the uncertainty surrounding Egypt’s efforts to establish a democracy after decades of authoritarian rule by Mubarak’s regime.

But, is Egypt transitioning to a democracy as we know it? Egypt’s Islamists have won a sizable majority on a 100-member panel tasked with drafting a new constitution, according to a list of names published by the country’s official news agency. The list reinforces fears by secular and liberal Egyptians that the Islamists dominating parliament will pack the panel with supporters and ignore concerns of other groups.

The new constitution will determine the balance of power between Egypt’s previously all-powerful president and parliament, and define the country’s future identity, including the role of religion and minority rights.

The ruling military and the Muslim Brotherhood have emerged as Egypt’s most powerful forces.The Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, or FJP,  accused the generals of trying to “hinder” the transition to democratic rule.

Just how democratic and freedom-loving is the Muslim Brotherhood?

The Muslim Brotherhood, also called Muslim Brethren or The Society of the Muslim Brothers is an Islamic organization with a political approach to Islam.  It was founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna . The Muslim Brotherhood opposes secular tendencies of Islamic nations and wants a return to the precepts of the Qur’an, and rejection of  all Western influences. The organization’s motto is as follows: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The Muslim Brotherhood will call for democracy and peace; however, their actions are different; they use violence as a means to an end.

War times investigator John Loftus says that al-Banna was a devout admirer of a young Austrian writer named Adolph Hitler. His letters to Hitler were so supportive that when Hitler came to power in the 1930s he had Nazi intelligence make contact with al-Banna to see if they could work together,” Loftus said.

Hitler had al-banna establish a spy network for Nazi Germany throughout Arabia and formed with the Nazi’s to fight the British and the Jews.

Later, both the Soviets and the United States used violent Arab fighters.  In 1979, when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, the Arab Nazis were unleashed.  Waves of people came pouring into Afghanistan to kill the Soviets; the Soviets were defeated and the United States left.  Osama bin Laden took control and his entire army of neo-Nazi theological cultists were left there alive in the field. This is the work of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Why is the American government, at a time when our economy is weak,  donating billions of tax dollars to support the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood who will use violence to achieve their ends?

ObamaCare – visualized summary of the impact, freedoms lost

Editor’s Note – You might have seen this video a stunning demonstration of political condescension on the health care front.

In remarks at the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said,

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.” (Heritage)

Well the “fog” is gone, and its the second anniversary of it being signed into law, and the ObamaCare nightmare is upon us.

As you can see in the visuals below, its not the package we bargained for. Wait, we did not bargain for it, it was crammed down our throats.

The SCOTUS is now contemplating its validity and Constitutionality, if they do not declare the whole thing void, the the next Congress, and next President must change, and must overturn this debacle.

Why? As Karen Harned points out at Fox News, there are five basic freedoms we will all lose:

1) The American ideal of freedom

Our nation was founded on individual liberty—liberty which is under assault by the health care law. The individual mandate is unprecedented and unconstitutional.

2) The freedom to purchase whatever product you want with your own money

The government has never been able to force Americans to buy something or pay a penalty in the history of this nation. If the individual mandate is upheld, the Constitution will not protect Americans from any mandate Congress wants to impose.

3) The right to own and operate your small business 

Small businesses create over 60 percent of the nation’s new jobs. The job market is stagnant and the health care law has had a palpable chilling effect on the sector and caused many small businesses not to hire.

4) The power to decide what is medically best for our families and businesses

If ObamaCare is upheld, over half of all Americans would be forced onto some type of government-run health-care by the end of the decade. Elite bureaucrats would be in charge of deciding what medical tests you need or should have based on costs. What’s more, these government bureaucrats will also get to decide what kinds of insurance plans will be made available and what businesses must provide in the form of health insurance to their employees.

5) The economic future of this country

ObamaCare is already a significant drag on the nation’s economy and could threaten to sink it even further when the mandate goes into effect in 2014. Not surprisingly, its costs were vastly underestimated during the national debate.

In Pictures: The Impact of Obamacare

Alyene Senger, From the Heritage Foundation’s blog: The Foundry

Today is the official second anniversary of Obamacare’s signing, but there’s little to celebrate. The Heritage Foundation’s re-launched version of “Obamacare in Pictures: Visualizing the Effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” shows through new charts and graphs Obamacare’s far-reaching negative effects on Americans

Here are just a few examples of what the series reveals about Obamacare:

It grows dependence on government. Obamacare expands government control over health care by expanding Medicaid and creating new government exchanges. By the year 2020, more than 50 percent of Americans will be enrolled in a government-run health care program.

It hurts jobs and the economy. Obamacare may be the cause of a slowed private-sector recovery. After it was signed into law, job growth in the private sector stalled. Also, Obamacare contains 17 new taxes on Americans that will total $502 billion between 2010 and 2019. Several of these will hit the middle class.

It threatens Americans’ existing coverage. Despite President Obama’s promise, “if you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan,” there are many provisions in Obamacare that will cause Americans to lose existing coverage. Some estimates show the loss of employer coverage will be as high as 35 million people.

It undermines state authority. Obamacare pushes approximately 20 million additional people onto state Medicaid rolls. Obamacare in Pictures shows the burden of the expansion in the increased Medicaid population and cost to each state. Meanwhile, 26 states have filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare’s individual mandate and forced Medicaid expansion.

Three-time 'Firearms Salesman of the Year'

Editor’s Note – In 2008, sales of firearms exploded because of so much uncertainty, and many attributed it to the prospect that Obama would win, especially with his record of not supporting the 2nd Amendment.

Then, the driving force behind Black Friday 2011 sales was firearms and ammunition; in fact, the FBI witnessed the all-time, one-day high for background check requests on weapons purchases. Now that the election season is here, Obama is once again proving to be the “Firearms Salesman of the Year” for at least the third time.

Gun sales explode as election looms

By Fox News

Sales of handguns and ammunition are booming across the country, and retailers say it’s all about the November election.

Gun shop owners around the nation told FoxNews.com that sales, brisk ever since President Obama was elected, have spiked upward in recent months. And manufacturers are having so much trouble keeping up with the demand that one, Sturm, Ruger & Co., can’t keep up with demand. The Southport, Conn.-based company has had to suspend new orders after taking orders for more than 1 million guns in the first three months of the year. Smith & Wesson sales are way up, as well.

Three-time Firearms Salesman of the Year - 2008, 2011, and 2012

Gunmakers’ stock soars

“Sales usually increase this time of year with tax returns, but this year has been higher than most,” Mike Weeks, owner of Georgia Gun Store in Gainesville told FoxNews.com. “People are scared their gun rights are going to be curtailed after the election.”

Weeks said his sales are up around 30 percent, and that he now sells ammo by the case.

“Usually people come in to buy three or four boxes for target practice. Now they are coming in asking what kind of deals they could get on a case,” he said.

Industry experts and gun shop owners alike say the factor driving gun sales is the Nov. 6 election. There was a similar spike before President Obama was elected to his first term, and many gun buyers are saying they fear Obama’s re-election could mean more regulations on firearms. Obama famously told fundraisers in 2008 that many Americans “cling to guns or religion,” and gun enthusiasts believe he is not fully behind the Second Amendment.

“It’s definitely the election year,” Jason Hanson, a former CIA officer and personal security specialist, told FoxNews.com. “People feel that Obama will serve second term and with it their gun rights with taken away, so they are stocking up.

“They’re also worried that the economy is not getting any better and that they need to protect themselves,” Hanson added.

In 2009, gun sales had shot up after Obama took office and firearm enthusiasts rushed to stores, fearing he would tighten gun control. Sales have continued to grow throughout his administration.

This year’s uptick comes on top of a record 2011, when nearly 11 million firearms were sold in the U.S., according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry. The group notes the $4 billion firearms business has bucked the weak economy, with robust sales since 2008.

One of the best indicators of firearms sales is the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System, which federally licensed firearm retailers use to conduct the mandatory background check on purchasers of new and used firearms. Statistics through December showed an unprecedented 19th straight month of background check increases when tabulated year over year. “Black Friday,” Nov. 25, 2011, saw a record for the most background checks in a single day –129,166.

Another strong indicator comes from Wall Street. Smith& Wesson shares are up a whopping 125 percent over the past year, while Sturm, Ruger’s are up about 112 percent. Even Taser, which makes non-lethal weapons, has seen its sales surge.

“It’s been a strong cycle. Sales of tactical rifles have been extremely strong,” Bret Jordan, a stock analyst specializing in the firearms market, told FoxNews.com, “Personal handguns have had a steady rise since 2008. The kind of stuff that fits in the waistband for when someone tries to steal your gas can.”

“There’s a lot of speculation that the Second Amendment will be affected by the next presidential term. There was one investors call and an executive was asked what he thought would happen if Obama was elected a second term and he said, ‘No one in the gun industry will tell you they like Obama, but everyone will vote for him,’” he said implying that a second Obama term would be good for continued business.

Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, said he is skeptical of claims that firearms sales are way up. But he said the gun industry does work to promote that perception.

“There’s no doubt [National Rifle Association President] Wayne LaPierre is out there every day saying that President Obama has a secret plan to take away your guns,” Horwitz said. “They want to gin up sales.”
