Laughed too soon...

I wasn't thinking... Rice wouldn't be Prez, PELOSI would be President. Still be the first woman, but who cares? I shudder to think about that scenario.

I'm laughing... this would be cool

Just rec'd this email:

You know what would really irritate the Democrats?

Bush should resign now, so Dick Cheney becomes President (that would REALLY tick off the libs)!!! Then Cheney appoints Condoleeza Rice as VP.

Two weeks later, Cheney resigns and Condoleeza Rice, a Republican, becomes the first BLACK - WOMAN president!!!

BINGO - we've outdone the LIBS!!!

THAT would be AWESOME!!!

(Correction... that wouldn't happen, wasn't thinking when I passed that one along... see my next post - BB)

Well, so much for optimism...

Okey Dokey… Obama declares implementing socialism shall be his “core” economic policy…
Posted: 24 Nov 2008 02:14 PM CST
Wow! To think this is coming from the President of America… Oh well, it could have been worse... From CNN
“As a thought leader, Larry [Summers] has urged us to confront the problems of income inequality and the middle-class squeeze, consistently arguing that the key to a strong economy is a strong, vibrant, growing middle class,” Obama said of Summers. “This idea is at the core of my own economic philosophy and will be the foundation of all of my economic policies.”...

(From P.U.M.A. --- they have great updates, be sure to sign up and check them out. I read things on there that I don't find anywhere else).

The future... if we're not vigilant???

This is supposed to be funny, but it's a reality that skims to close to possibilities for many! I hope that the fact that Obama is choosing the same-old-same-old political insiders for his Cabinet means that the change he promised was nothing but the empty rhetoric that we hear from politicians day after day... Then again, he could just be trying to lull us into complacency. Only time will tell what the future holds for us. I know I'm going to fight to keep our country free.

Obama Birth Certificate Issue / Update

Linda Shaw rocks! She is doing such a fantastic job of keeping us posted on this issue! Did you see where the Kenyan government is either going to or is debating putting up a shrine at what they say is Obama's BIRTH PLACE in Kenya? Those folks are just swollen with pride that one of their natural born citizens has grown up to be President of the United States... I'll go back and find the story on that one for you, post it later.


You already have been sent info on contacting Congress. Here is a letter you can use. It takes into account info from the Berg (1st) and Keys (the latest) lawsuit.

This can happen but it is a fight to the finish. I know some do not believe in doing it but if Keyes is successful, which I think he has the better shot than any of them, then things will go from there. If you have not read Keyes lawsuit yet, you are missing out as he covers all that others did not and actually gives cases in the past that the SOS did take someone off the ballot after verification proving it is their job.

I would appreciate you passing it on to others in case they would like to participate.

The Honorable (full name)(Room #) (Name)
Senate Office Building
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear (Senator) (Representative)

Our Founding Fathers placed in the Constitution restrictions on who could be the Vice President and Commander-in-Chief. There is a potential danger and risk that could be brought about by a national leader with possible divided loyalties and personal entanglements in foreign lands. Therefore, it was deemed wise to restrict those posts to natural-born individuals without dual citizenships. The 20th amendment identifies the time prior to inauguration for objections to be made to the qualifications of Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates. In this missive, a clear unimpeachable argument is made that Barack Obama has yet to provide support for the proposition that he meets that Constitutional bar.

Despite much public demand, Mr. Obama has not provided access to a vault Birth Certificate proving his actual place of birth. Moreover, the “short form” evidence released by the Obama campaign purporting to be a “Certification of Live Birth” on its face appears to be of questionable authenticity. The question of the authenticity is really moot as the real problem is it does not address any of the detail required to answer the question of actual place of birth.

The press release issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department of Health regarding Obama's original birth certificate fails to resolve any of the questions raised in litigation since Hawaii has two types of original birth certificates. Therefore, the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified copy or¿¿ the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the Live Birth.

An often-asked question: Why Is his birth location important since his mother was a U.S. citizen?

The residency requirements for the US citizen parent are different than today, Section 301(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended, would be in effect at the time of Mr. Obama’s birth in 1961. Based on this law, if Barack Obama was born outside the US or its Outlying Possessions, on August 4, 1961, then Ms. Dunham could not transmit her citizenship to her son because she failed to have accumulated the necessary physical presence requirements that the LAW demanded.

It is that simple. If he was born in Kenya, then he is not, nor can he ever be eligible to hold the office of President of the United States of America, inasmuch as he does not, nor can he ever, fulfill the requirements of Article II, Clause V, of the Constitution of the United States. Now, the question remains to be answered if he was born in Kenya or not.

If he was born in Hawaii, there are other obstacles to Senator Obama’s eligibility. Mr. Obama, in and about 1967, moved to Indonesia. took the last name of his stepfather, Soetoro, and was registered at school by the name Barry Soetoro showing citizenship as Indonesian. This creates complications with dual-citizenship. During that time, Indonesia did not recognize dual-citizenship and the U.S. only recognized when the other country did. It was also prohibited by the Hague Convention of 1930, as interfering with the internal affairs of another sovereign Country. This brings into question whether or not Mr. Obama went to the then current immigration procedures to regain the U.S. citizenship. Since Mr. Obama traveled to Pakistan in 1981, when there was a ban for U.S. citizens to travel to Pakistan, it leads us to believe that he did not go through the process to regain his U.S. citizenship. Even if he had done so, he would be considered a naturalized citizen and not a “natural born” citizen.

It is your duty to uphold the constitution. Therefore, we the citizens of the United States ask that you initiate a congressional investigation and demand documentary proof that Senator Obama is a “natural born” citizen of the United States of America. This proof could include items such as his original birth certificate, showing the name of the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor, all of his passports with immigration stamps, and verification from the governments where the candidate has resided, verifying that he did not, and does not, hold citizenship of these countries, or any other documents that certify an individual’s citizenship and/or qualification for office.

Although there have been questions for months about Mr.Obama’s eligibility, the first lawsuit was filed on August 21, 2008. What is troubling and frustrating is that the questions could have easily been answered by Mr. Obama. However, he has refused to provide his vault birth certificate. Why would he not want to provide it?

Senator Obama could be compromised if he is not a natural born citizen, which means our country is compromised. The secret briefings he is now receiving should stop immediately. This citizenship issue could resurface during an Obama presidency. If he has ever presented himself as a US citizen or with dual citizenship, during international travel and/or on official applications for any institution such as a university, other people will know (or find out) about it. He might be vulnerable to domestic or foreign blackmail, or pressed for favors, which are not in the best interests of the average American.

We ask you again, as concerned citizens and patriots, to launch an investigation or to file a challenge against the electors who will vote on December 15th. Failure to grant this request to verify the constitutionally required qualifications of Senator Obama not only allows, but promotes, an overwhelming degree of disrespect for our Constitution and for our electoral process, would allow a potentially corrupted, fraudulent, nomination and election process to continue.

For Constitutional government,

More on Levi's commercial...

Well, I went to the Levi's page and left my comment. I told them I was going through drawers and trashing Levi's jeans and products and that my entire extended family was doing the same, and that I was sending emails to my church friends and other contacts, etc., etc., etc.

Here's the response:

Thanks for contacting us about our "Live Unbuttoned" ad campaign.

We appreciate hearing from you.

We try hard to connect in meaningful ways with the enormously diverse range
of people who wear our jeans. Sometimes, we miss the mark and sincerely
apologize if you feel this is one of those times.

Thanks again for letting us know your comments and concerns.

We will definitely pass them on to our marketing colleagues who pay close
attention to consumer feedback.

Consumer Relations
Levi Strauss & Co.

So, do you think they're used to getting complaints? Sounds like a canned response to me. Somewhere, somehow, we have to take back our country. We can't go back in time to the days of Beaver Cleaver or whatever his name was (not that those days really existed), and we can't hid our heads in the same, but geez louise, do we have to rub our kids noses in sex? Do we have to have companies promoting sex to kids who even with the strongest morals have a hard time with their hormones at certain ages?

Maybe my friends have a good idea --- we need to secede and start a country with values. My husband and I were looking at the map of the country and checking out the red and blue states. If we all gather together in our respective blue and red states all the beach front property would be owned by liberals ;-)

I'm more of the Ayn Rand mindset. Let's just take all the intelligent, productive people and go hide somewhere.

Levi's goes over the line into selling kid sex...

Hat tip to Pundit & Pundette blog for this one!

I don't normally delve into commercials, television, etc., on this blog. However, this one steamed me. It's borderline kiddie porn and at best it's selling sex using KIDS. What lame brain at LEVI thought that this wouldn't cause angst with parents? Or were they counting on the uproar to bring attention to their product so the kids would rebel and want to buy it? Are they trying to pit parent against child? You know parents are going to have fits about this commercial and that means the kids are going to love it. But what's the message aside from the "cool" factor for kids? Don't we have enough problems with dirty old perverts without feeding them this kind of garbage?

The way I feel now as an adult about this commercial is not the way I'd feel as a teenager... I remember those years all too well . I'd be clamoring for the stupid jeans and would have gotten away with it 'cause my parents wouldn't have seen the commercial . If they had they'd have burned all the Levi's in the house.

This one doesn't skirt the line, it goes way over the line. As parents we're trying to teach our children to be responsible and to teach values. I believe it's time to turn of the television. For good.

Levi's has a contact form here. You can select "advertising" from the menu.

Here's the link to NBC so you can contact them: http://www.nbc.com/Footer/Contact_Us/. I'm not sure that there's an appropriate topic on the page, but I'm sure if enough people comment they'll get the message. If I'm remembering correctly, this is the same station that wouldn't play one of John McCain's ads because it was too controversial... the ad was played on all other stations.

Latest from Linda on Egobama's Missing Birth Credentials...

Ya gotta wonder why we're not hearing about this anywhere on the MSM...

OK, stop laughing now.

I can just hear you sputtering: "why should we expect to start hearing anything of substance NOW???"

As I've mentioned in previous posts, Linda Shaw is keeping a bunch of us updated on the latest and greatest in regards to the missing proof that Obama is constitutionally allowed to BE the President. She is great at ferreting out this info!

Executive Editor

"Factually Correct, Not Politically Correct"




(November 16, 2008)

Aloha from Hawai'i.

I landed in Honolulu Friday and we have set up a fully functional "fighting camp" to prepare for the court hearing Tuesday, November 18th at 10:30 A.M. on access to Barack Obama's birth certificate

This will be the first court hearing anywhere on access to the original, 1961 certificate. The only state that has jurisdiction over such a lawsuit is Hawai'i, because Hawai'i officials are the custodians of the 1961 typewritten paperwork.

Before we get to the back story, let me start with a disclaimer. I have no idea what the judge will do on Tuesday. I make no predictions, except one: I will prepare to the best of my ability and present as professional a case as the judge permits. Monday morning I will be on the street serving papers and filing with the Clerk in preparation for Tuesday.

And, looking ahead, whatever happens on Tuesday, on Wednesday we hope to launch my "Conversation With America" about our future course of action in an Obama administration. I invite all of you to join in and support this mission.

Just as the FBI always attends every Gambino Family funeral to see who is there, ContrarianCommentary.com was in Honolulu Friday to observe the "independent" (not family-sponsored) "memorial service" held in memory of Barack Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham. We will have a full column later Sunday, or possibly Monday.

It occurred to me that you might appreciate some insight into the effort that goes into preparing and presenting a major piece of litigation 8,000 miles away from home.

Anyone who has read our Memorandum of Law (see the ContrarianCommentary.com blogs below for a full copy) will not be surprised that it took us the better part of a week to analyze, research, write and finalize a 25-page document (which we will be filing with the Clerk on Monday morning) setting forth why Obama's birth certificate must be made public.

If a large law firm was handling the case of Martin vs. Obama, they would probably send a minimum team of four lawyers as well as support personnel. They would have a trial counsel, a couple of associates, and a senior partner to guide the overall process. There would be at least one paralegal, possibly more. That's why high stakes litigation is so costly.

Martin vs. Obama is a high stakes lawsuit: it seeks to open a vital record of American history to public review and analysis.

And I will be working alone.

Ask any lawyer: it's not easy landing in a strange town, setting up an office and firing off legal documents in a controversial constitutional case. But we managed to file the lawsuit two days after arriving in Honolulu in October, and now we are back for the first court hearing anywhere to address the issue of Barack Obama's origins.

Landing in an unfamiliar city, any lawyer would need a support network. We managed to recreate our October "fighting camp" in 24 hours and are up and running. I dragged a printer on the 12 hour flight because we have to be able to react immediately to any development. Saturday morning we were out assembling office supplies to be ready to move quickly on Monday morning.

I even purchased a box of envelopes so that if we have a breather, we can start mailing out thank you notes to everyone who contributed to the financial support of this very costly and complex venture. There is no wasted time on a trip of this nature, and no wasted money.

I will take time off Sunday morning to attend services at Saint Andrews (Episcopal) cathedral in downtown Honolulu. And I forgot to pack my sunglasses, so I need to go shopping for a pair.

Unlike other lawsuits involving Obama, mine is narrowly and specifically focused on access to the original, typewritten 1961 certificate which Hawai'i officials have confirmed they possess. There is no way anyone can express an opinion on the circumstances of Obama's birth without seeing the vital gateway document. I have refrained from speculating on the contents of the original because my focus is on expressing an informed opinion (a term CNN once made fund of).

Mr. Obama and his Chicago crew have been very crafty in creating a cloud of confusion over the "abstract" that he furnished to FactCheck.org as a purported original birth certificate, when obviously it was nothing of the sort. Many millions of people were confused even though the term "abstract" was clearly visible on the FactCheck.org site (and even though FactCheck.org seems to have missed that significance, as well).

We will also be continuing and conducting the research and investigation we began in October to document Obama's origins in Hawai'i with interviews and contacts with people who knew his family and the other "players" in the Honolulu dramas of the 1970's and 80's.

As these comments are being prepared Sunday morning I can only conclude with a sense of deep humility at the enormity of the task and the nature of the burden. I continue to bear Barack Obama no ill will. Nevertheless, I passionately and sincerely believe that he owes the American people a detailed exposition of both his personal and his family history, and that he has not been candid with the American people. Without candor, he will not be able to establish the legitimacy that is essential for national leadership. He remains a stranger to the American people.

Barack Obama and his character assassins such as Robert Gibbs have done everything they can to demonize and defeat and intimidate me. They have failed utterly and abjectly. Tuesday morning I will stand up in court, stand tall, and stand proud for every American who believes Barack Obama needs to start telling the truth about himself. The election may be over. But the search for the truth about Mr. Obama is continuing.

Hi ya'll (my southern roots are shinin' through tonight)... During the election there were a LOT of Hillary supporters who moved over and worked their tale ends off for McCain. Some for Sarah, some for McCain, but all against Obama. Quite a few different reasons, but all told I understand that roughly 20% of those who voted for Hillary switched their vote to McCain. Could be higher than that percentage, but that's what was reported. How they figure that one out I'll never know given the varying ways that states keep up with Dem and Rep voters.

P.U.M.A. (Party Unity My Ass ;-) was one of the groups that was really out there in this election and they're still going strong.

I signed up for updates from P.U.M.A. I'm going to share some of the topics I rec'd in my update this evening so you can check it out, see if you're interested in signing up. Always interesting, always informative.

When you consider the fact that Hillary Clinton chose to put personal ambition aside and support Barack Obama’s quest for the presidency, Obama’s latest decision to give his campaign staff humongous bonuses while not lifting a finger to help Hillary retire her debt is just shameful. Then again, Obama has never been a person with whose name virtue is associated....

More on Barry's Birth Cert / Citzenship

I always liked Alan Keyes ;-) Here's the latest email I rec'd from Linda:

The country has the right to know the truth.

The campaigning is over and now people are learning about all the lawsuits against Obama's eligibility and the fact that he still refuses to present documentation. The MSM failed to report what we all had discovered. Now people are getting involved to learn the truth.

Andy Martin's case is in court Nov 18. The level he started his case and his reasons give him a good chance to put the questions to rest. Others are upcoming. Help them with their cases and be sure to write the justices and the electors.

Besides the new one filed on Nov 13, here is link that talks about the court cases.

Obama's Birth Certificate and Citizenship Problems

I'm rec'd this info in a Yahoo group (TeamSarah2012) I'm in and thought it was great info, long, but gives you the ability to get involved and ACT before it's too late re: Obama's lack of bonafides (remember the movie Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?). Hat tip to Linda Shaw, she's doing a phenomenal job of collecting and disseminating this info!

The following is information everyone should know and action to take regardless of for whom you voted.

Note: It has been suggested that we all sign our letters: "A Friend of the Court."

There are two issues regarding Senator Obama:
his birth certificate proving that Obama was born in Hawaii.
his citizenship papers showing that Obama has U.S. citizenship.
In Indonesia, there are school records showing he was registered as Barry Soetero, with Indonesian citizenship. At age 10, Obama left Indonesia, using an Indonesian passport, to move back to Hawaii. At that point, he should have re-applied to become a citizen of the U.S.

Facts: Obama has yet to release birth certificate or citizenship documents (as well as others)
Why? It is a simple thing to present and stop the speculation and unify the country with the truth.

Fact: There have been state lawsuits filed and/or prepared in WA, FL, NC, CO, CA, OH, FL, CT, GA, TX, MI. Related lawsuits in HI, US District.
Some have been dismissed but they plan to refile. Andy Martin's lawsuit in Hi goes to court on November 18. By Mr. Martin starting in the District Court and with the reasons he is using, he actually has a very good chance of getting the standing that is needed. I read a long article on this last night on a law review.

Fact: Supreme Court lawsuits have been filed in PA and NJ
The one in NJ is in the process of being refiled. All the documents can be seen at:
The key fact surrounds two conversations between the plaintiff-appellant and a key Secretary of State Election Division official wherein the official admitted, twice, that the defendant-Secretary just assumed the candidates were eligible taking no further action to actually verify that they were, in fact, eligible to the office of President. These conversations took place on October 22nd and 23rd.

"Due to some very unorthodox treatment of the case in the NJ Appellate Division, and also by the US Supreme Court Clerk's office, a press conference is now being prepared to coincide with the resubmission of the Stay application to Justice Clarence Thomas."
However, the papers will be given to all the Supreme Court Justices to review.

In PA, the first filed lawsuit was by Phil Berg. It is now in the Supreme Court and Obama's lawyers have to answer the Writ by Dec 1. See Mr. Berg's website: www.obamacrimes.com

There are postings about this on numerous blogs stating that Obama has to present his BC by Dec 1. If you read this, please correct it. The judge has not ordered anything. Obama's lawyers most likely will answer with another motion, which Mr. Berg will answer, then the judge will probably make a decision on whether to proceed. It jeopardizes the case for false information to be floating around the Internet, per his assistant with whom I have spoken.

There is also an issue of who has the right to file and have standing, which brings us to the electoral committee. The electors are the ones who have to do the official voting for the people; therefore, they need to be sure the candidate for whom they are voting is eligible to be President. As of a couple of days ago, 24 electors have joined in the lawsuits asking for Obama to present his documents.

Dates to be aware of:


December 15, 2008 - Meeting of Electors: The electors in each State meet to select the President and Vice President of the United States. The electors record their votes on six "Certificates of Vote," which are paired with the six remaining original "Certificates of Ascertainment." The electors sign, seal and certify the packages of electoral votes and immediately send them to the President of the Senate, the Archivist of the United States and other designated Federal and State officials.

* December 24, 2008 - Deadline for Receipt of Electoral Votes: The President of the Senate, the Archivist of the United States, and other designated Federal and State officials must have the electoral votes in hand.

* January 6, 2009 - Counting Electoral Votes in Congress: The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes (unless Congress passes a law to change the date).

Things we can do to assure that Obama is eligible to be President and that our constitution is upheld:

1. Send a letter to all Supreme Court Justices requesting for them to please ensure our constitution is upheld and that Senator Barack Obama presents his birth certificate and citizenship papers to prove his eligibility to be President.

Address letters to:

The Honorable Associate Justice (Full Name)
United States Supreme Court
One First Street, N.E.,
Washington, D.C. 20543.

When writing to Chief Justice Roberts, please make sure the envelope is addressed to:

The Honorable John G. Roberts, Chief Justice of the United States
Sample letter:

[QUOTE] Dear Honorable Associate Justice (last name), or
Chief Justice Roberts when writing him

I am writing to ask you to please
uphold our constitution by verifying the eligibility of Barack Obama to be the
President of the United States. There is much speculation and the only way for
the country to feel secure that he is eligible is for you to settle this matter.

Please request Barack Obama to present his birth certificate to the
courts for verification. Please also request any citizenship papers showing he
acquired U.S. citizenship when he moved from Indonesia back to Hawaii. This
latter request is due to school records from Indonesia showing he was enrolled
as Barry Soetero, with Indonesian citizenship.

Thank you for your
honorable service to our country and for upholding our constitution in these
trying times.


Send letters to the following:
John G. Roberts, Jr. Chief Justice of the United States

The Supreme Court Associate Justices are as follows:

John Paul Stevens
Samuel A. Alito Jr.
Antonin Scalia
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Anthony M. Kennedy
David H. Sauter
Clarence Thomas
Stephen G. Breyer


Public Information Office: 202-479-3211, Reporters press 1
Clerk's Office: 202-479-3011
Visitor Information Line: 202-479-3030
Opinion Announcements: 202-479-3360

2. Write the electors to try to get the BC resolved. This is growing in power and 24 electors have agreed to be added to the lawsuits. You can do this on your own or visit the following website of Dr. Schell.

Dr. Douglas W. Schell has a site that has all the information one would need to write these, including a cover letter and attachments that will be added. Much has been added in just the last couple of days.

He has cover letters and other reference material available to use.:

I actually wrote Dr. Schell as the letter needs to have included in it the request for the citizenship papers. Use the letter, however, include the request in the above sample letter to the justices regarding the citizenship papers. This will need to be added in the initial request of the letter and also where Dr. Schell says he will drop the case when the birth certificate is verified. Just change it to say when birth certificate and citizenship papers are verified. You can modify it to use without his name, however, they are trying to keep track of who is writing and would like you to post. We want to make sure all states are covered.

Electors' Names and Addresses

This is per state. There are 39 out of 50 states completed. It is still being added to so people need to check back frequently. Write your state and if you can write electors in other states, please do so.
. http://americamustknow.com/electoralcollegecase.aspx

There are some state laws prohibiting electors in those states to change their vote.
I suggest focusing on the states that do allow them to switch before moving on to the other states.

No Legal Requirement

Electors in these States are not bound by State Law to cast their vote for a specific candidate:
ARIZONA - 10 Electoral Votes
ARKANSAS - 6 Electoral Votes
DELAWARE - 3 Electoral Votes
GEORGIA - 15 Electoral Votes
IDAHO - 4 Electoral Votes
ILLINOIS - 21 Electoral Votes
INDIANA - 11 Electoral Votes
IOWA - 7 Electoral Votes
KANSAS - 6 Electoral Votes
KENTUCKY - 8 Electoral Votes
LOUISIANA - 9 Electoral Votes
MINNESOTA - 10 Electoral Votes MISSOURI - 11 Electoral Votes
NEW HAMPSHIRE - 4 Electoral Votes
NEW JERSEY - 15 Electoral Votes
NEW YORK - 31 Electoral Votes
NORTH DAKOTA - 3 Electoral Votes
PENNSYLVANIA - 21 Electoral Votes
RHODE ISLAND - 4 Electoral Votes
SOUTH DAKOTA - 3 Electoral Votes
TENNESSEE - 11 Electoral Votes
TEXAS - 34 Electoral Votes
UTAH - 5 Electoral Votes
WEST VIRGINIA - 5 Electoral Votes

The following has the above list as well as the list that do not allow electors to change their vote without being slapped with a fine. There are only 8 states that McCain won that are in this category. The electors can still join the lawsuit and request the information.


.Also, if you want to write on your own without Dr. Schell's. Here is another letter you can forward with yours. It was actually a press release.

This letter can be included as any electors can contact him to be added to the lawsuit. There is also a website link to check out.

Wiley S. Drake, Sr. wileydrake@hotmail.com

Vice presidential Candidate Wiley S. Drake Sr. to file in court asking to
de-certify Barack Obama because he has refused to release proof of being a Natural Born Citizen, thereby disqualifying Obama in his bid for the Office of President.

The recent Lawsuit in Washington State demanding their Secretary of State to vet the citizenship credentials of Barack Obama has spawned a slew of similar suits with new lawsuits filed and/or prepared in WA, FL, NC, CO, CA, OH, FL, CT, GA, TX, MI. Related lawsuits HI, US District.

As part of this effort, this group of citizens from states across the union made an outreach to the whole presidential slate asking each candidate for president and vice president to offer up a certified copy of their birth certificates and any related candidate declarations to be placed in a library made available to the public via a non-partisan web site.

At least one VP candidate Wiley S. Drake Sr. went the next step and agreed to file a lawsuit of his own to demand the disqualification of Barack Obama unless he can prove status as a ”Natural Born Citizen” as the constitution and federal statues demand and define.

In another unrelated action, though also aimed at forcing Obama to release proof or step down, 24 potential Electoral College electors are filing action Monday morning in court also demanding proof. A call is herein being issued to any elector in any state, especially democrat electors who would like to join that effort. Electors interested in adding their name to this lawsuit can contact Mr. Marquis who will put you in contact with the attorney handling that case.

Contact: Steve Marquis
Telephone Number: 425-698-7084
Email Address: peoplesvoice@peoplespassions.org

The site that has info on writing the electors suggest certified/return receipt mail in case it is needed for court. It would be a good idea for any of these.

Steele Officially Announces

I understand Newt Gingrich isn't going to run for it, he's going to back Steele. I like Steele, at least when he's talking on the radio. He's not afraid to be out there fighting for his principles. I have no idea how he'll be as a leader. Sometimes being able to speak is enough, but in this case the Republican Party needs someone who has the ability to herd cats.

We need change in the Republican Party and it does need to start from the top. I think if Steele gets the job we'll have the folks at the bottom wanting change and the guy at the top wanting change. It'll be up to us to squeeze out the status-quo, power happy types. We'll need to make sure we don't sweep out the wheat with the chaff, too. (Bad analogy these days as people are paying big bucks for the chaff... ya know, that high priced fiber you're buying...)

Steele Announces Candidacy for RNC Chairman
(BUSINESS WIRE)--Former Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele today announced his candidacy for the position of Chairman of the Republican National Committee.Steele was clear in his reason for running by saying, “the Republican Party must present a vision for the future of America that relies on our conservative values and core principles. It is wrong to believe the voters have suddenly become liberal. They have just lost any sense of confidence that the Republican Party holds the answers to their problems. We must face the fact that our party has failed in recent years to live up to our own principles -- we have failed to be ‘solutions oriented’ in addressing the concerns of all Americans.”...

FOCA, Abortion, State's Rights, Egobama

Egobama's stance on abortion was much discussed during the election. The fact that he stood before Planned Parenthood and promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) as one of his first actions as President was shared with millions via YouTube.

Now he is to be the President and he will sign FOCA. I urge you to go read up on this act. According to what I've read the act will legalize partial birth abortions, will take away the parents right of notification for their minor children's abortions, and do away with a state's right to enact legislation in regards to abortion.

In other words, abortion is going to be crammed down the throat of everyone.

If you are one who is not against abortion, there is something in FOCA that should set off alarms: the erosion of state's rights.

Please go out and do some research.

For those who are against abortion, there is MUCH to be concerned about in this bill. Roe vs. Wade is nothing in comparison to what FOCA will do to legitimize using abortion as birth control.

Here are two sites with some information:

Susan B. Anthony List Sign the petition now: www.sba-list.org/foca
Catholic Vote www.catholicvote.com

I know there are other great sites with lots of info, you'll find them on the search engines. We only have a short window of opportunity to try and change Egobama's mind on this issue, if it is changeable.

I'm hoping he's going to find the reality of being President won't allow him to enact some of his campaign promises. However, he's going to have to throw his supporters some bones. This may be one that he tosses out to satisfy his followers despite an uproar from many of us. If we yell loud enough, maybe it won't be the one he chooses. Let's yell.

Joe the Plumber's website AND Book

Thanks to America Needs Sarah Palin for finding Joe's site, I've been meaning to look for it! Here's the link: http://www.secureourdream.com/index.html

Now for my comments on his site, Secure Our Dream.

I tried to sign up for updates. Either I'm blind or you can't do the free membership. When I clicked the link it took me to the page where they're selling his new book.

Yes, his new book. Fast, huh?

I don't begrudge him making a nickel, especially after his ordeal with the media. He was catapulted into the spotlight simply because he asked a question and someone caught it on tape. He's been trashed, investigated and he gave up much of his time to try and help John McCain and Sarah Palin get elected.

Unfortunately, the American people voted to redistribute wealth, bankrupt the coal industry and take away parental right of notification for children's abortions (among other things). They wanted change, they're going to get it shoved down their throats.

But I digress.

I understand that Joe's time in the limelight may be short and it's the American way to capitalize on those moments (if you're smart). However, somehow it tarnished his image just a teeny-tiny bit when I saw the quickly written and published book.

I want a selfless champion who does things for the good of the country, not one who does it for personal gain. True, those who do that are usually poor champions though and we rarely hear about them. We know Joe. He has become a symbol of the "real" America.

There are two levels of membership, one free and one that costs. The one that costs gets you access to chat with Joe and some other perks. You get into the "inner sanctum" for an annual fee.

Again, can't blame him as he's giving up his time, he's paying for the website and chances are he's had to hire someone or several someones to help out. But I still felt that twinge of doubt and I saw the pipe metal halo we've put on his head slip just a bit.

I'm reading motivation into the money angles that probably aren't there. I'm stereotyping, which is something I abhor. But obviously I still do it! It's completely unrealistic to expect someone to starve! The guys' life was turned completely upside down and his future has now gone off on a tangent he could never have envisioned. I know I'd probably be doing the same darned thing if I were in his position.

Still, as a good friend used to say, 'I'm going to have to be with this for a bit' before I correct the angle of his halo. In the meantime, I'm going to "assume" that he's raising money from the book so he can continue his new-found mission (see below). If so, that's highly admirable. I bet that's what he's doing, too. I need to sit down and have a talk with myself, don't I?

Joe's new non-profit organization is "Secure our Dream". Here are his comments, which I very much like:


The other day, I was contacted by 72-year old man who pleaded with me
to share his story with the media and politicians. He and his wife lost all of
their savings in the stock market recently. They worked all their lives for this
country and now they have nothing. Why? Because of corruption in Washington.
That man asked me, “What do I do now Joe?”

So, here’s my promise to Robert and the other Joes and Janes out there
who have been failed by their politicians. I have formed this organization to
bring together individuals who want to help others, while at the same time
ensuring our government keeps answering our tough questions.

With your help, we can stop the government and banks from taking
peoples' homes away. We can stop our elected officials from selling our children
into debt with our enemies. We can help each other far better and faster than
the government has ever been able to.

Slightly tarnished image or not, all I have to say is "Go Joe!!!" Live the American Dream. Thanks for trying to help during the election.

Egobama's Birth Certificate Still an Issue

Hi all, I wanted to pass this along for you to check out (I'm going to use "egobama" from now on!):

A message from Dawn (aka Donya) to all members of Rush Limbaugh Fans for Sarah Palin on Team Sarah!

Patriots, Forgive me if I’m repeating something you are already aware of, but I want to canvas our site with this letter.

Is everyone aware of what’s STILL in the balance regarding BHO’s birth certificate? I just heard an interview on the radio late last night with the man who is heading-up this suit and claim (that Obama is NOT a natural-born U.S. citizen).

It has NOT been thrown out of court nor resolved yet. There was merely a technical reason (forgive me for not knowing the legal term) why the judge who reviewed it couldn’t weigh in on it.

So now it is moving on to some other level in the courts, and won’t even be reviewed until January 1st (days away from inauguration!).

In the meantime, Obama is getting briefed daily on our nation’s most TOP SECRET issues by our current president and his transition team! Anyway, if this is true, it will be the BIGGEST HOAX in the history of our country (possibly the world), and it is swiftly approaching.

This is a blatant disregard for our Constitutional law!

Forget Bill Ayers, forget Jeremiah Wright, forget “spreading the wealth around”... how about having a U.S. president breaking the first rule of Constitutional law?! And NO ONE’S COVERING THIS (big surprise).

We’re not asking to see his SS number, his health records, or tax records... we’re asking for the same document that ALL of us have to present in order to function as upstanding citizens.

I’m asking everyone to PLEASE go to www.obamacrimes.com, read the info, and PLEASE consider donating to fighting this most important law suit. If everyone on this site donated just $10, we would raise $550,000 towards the legal battle, and put it to rest. Remember, Obama is well entrenched and surrounded by all of his dirty, Chicago, legal team, thugs. Pass this on within this network AND via emails ASAP.

God bless the U.S.A.
(aka Donya)

Have you seen all our new blogs???

I noticed we have added quite a few new blogs since the election. The Drone Report, Vets on the Watch, Draft Sarah Palin 2012, Real World Libertarian, Mainstream Media Blackout and I probably missed some.

Fantastic! It's great to see that people are hearing about our Lipstick network, and that they're out there fighting for a better future.

Let's beat the 3 million strong "other" side and get our message out there! We need to write, talk, call, and act for a better future. A lot is at stake right now and we gotta stay together and stay strong.

Welcome to the new blogs! Looking forward to reading your words.

A Million Voices

I just posted this on my other blog. Had to share here, too! WOW! Powerful.

Data mining for the DNC, but not for national security

By Michelle Malkin • November 6, 2008 01:48 AM
Can the Democrats’ “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” file get any bigger? Thanks to Jeff Poor at the Business and Media Institute, we now know that the Democratic National Committee is employing the very data mining techniques to build its party base that Democrat leaders have assailed when used by the Bush administration to prevent terrorist attacks.

Send a message to Sarah!!!

Michelle Malkin has a petition going to Sarah from her readers showing support and good wishes. You can sign and leave a comment.

Here's the link: http://michellemalkin.com/2008/11/06/send-a-message-to-sarah-palin/

Where's Joe?

I just watched part of a video tribute to Joe which was rather nice. It made me wonder what he was doing now that all the hype has passed. I wonder if he's still going to sue? Anyone out there keeping up with Joe the Plumber? He's a nice lookin' guy, bet he had gobs of women contacting him!

Can you imagine how his life changed? One day he's a regular old guy hanging out with his kids, working and trying to get ahead. One simple question and wham, his life is crazy.

Now it's done, gone, finished and his life might? maybe? possibly? go back to normal?

I know there was a big push to have him run for Congress. He may have had his fill of government. At least he's gone through the fire and won't be like most novice candidates who have no idea how nasty the game will get!

I wouldn't hire them...

I've done a lot of hiring (and a little bit of firing) over the years working in corporate America.

One of the rules I had when I interviewed someone for a prospective job was that if they badmouthed their current or previous employer or boss in any way, I wouldn't hire them. In fact, I found some way to shorten the interview and get them out of my office.

If someone will badmouth the employer they're leaving then what's to stop them from badmouthing me, my staff, or my company in the future? It says something about their outlook on life and work ethic.

It also showed a high level of stupidity and a complete lack of common sense.

Now we have these dirtbags who think they're saving their own necks by trashing Sarah Palin. Sorry dudes, it's you who should be trashed. I'd like to find the names of all the aides who worked with Sarah Palin and put them out on the Internet work sites and political sites with a big X through their names.

"Do NOT hire these idiots"

I've run numerous campaigns, too.

Campaigns are tough and there's a LOT of stress. Negative personalities should steer clear of that pressure-cooker environment. People who are there to promote themselves are in the wrong business. It's all about promoting those at the top.

When they take pot shots at Sarah, they're also taking those same shots at John McCain. He "hired" her.

It has crossed my mind that there really aren't any aides out there saying these things. It's more of those reporter-fantasy tales we heard during the election. They heard it from someone who heard it from someone who really knows someone who said it. Thus it's true.

Just by virtue of the fact that these dimbulbs are only speaking anonymously says a lot about their personality, backbone, and character. They are quivering, snidely schmucks.

From Heritage Foundation's Morning Bell...

Congratulations, President-Elect Obama

After a hard-fought campaign nearly two years in the making, last night a candidate was elected president of the United States. That candidate promised to “cut taxes for 95% of workers and their families,” expand the Army by 65,000 and the Marines by 27,000, and enact “a net spending cut ” for the federal government. Lower taxes, a strong defense and shrinking the size of government. These are core conservative beliefs. Anyone who claims yesterday’s election was the end of conservatism simply was not paying attention to the campaign.

Despite a political environment that heavily favored the party of the left, Barack Obama still managed only a 5-point margin of victory. Compare that to a true conservative, Ronald Reagan, who bested his liberal opponents by 9 points in 1980 and by 18 points in 1984 . According to last night’s exit polls, Americans who voted yesterday are 34% conservative, 44% moderate and only 22% liberal. As Newsweek admitted earlier this year: “Should Obama win, he will have to govern a nation that is more instinctively conservative than it is liberal.”

There is no doubt the Republican Party has lost its way. Non-defense federal spending has risen 3.74% under President Bush compared to 2.93% under President Bill Clinton and 1% under Reagan. Federal spending now tops $25,000 per household annually, and the coming Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid costs threaten to add another $12,000 per household per year.

Conservatives have a lot of work to do.

One of the many tasks conservatives will happily perform is making sure Obama keeps his promises to lower taxes, strengthen the military and cut spending. The Los Angeles Times reports: “[S]ome Democrats are already debating whether Obama’s promised middle-class tax cut should be scaled back to lessen the hit to the budget. ‘He should be able to persuade the country that some promises are going to have to be put on hold,’ said Will Marshall of the centrist Democratic Leadership Council.” In just 76 days, we are going to start finding out if the next president’s actions will match his rhetoric.

Voters in California, Florida and Arizona appeared to be favoring constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage.

Germany’s energy regulator is urging politicians to speed up the approval of power plants to ensure the country can avoid a looming threat of power shortages.

A Government Accountability Office report found the federal government isn’t doing enough to expedite drilling in federal waters and on public lands.

Two state ballot measures that would dramatically expand California’s use of renewable power and alternative fuels appeared headed for defeat.

Oprah told the Christian Broadcasting Network last night that Obama’s victory was “the most meaningful thing that has ever happened.”

The McCain-Palin campaign launched the Honest and Open Election hotline to help citizens learn the location of their polling place, as well as report any instances of irregularities at the polls, including voter fraud, intimidation, violence and electioneering. The hotline can be accessed via phone at: 866-976-VOTE.

"With the tomorrow's election, our Honest and Open Election hotline will serve as an informative guide for all Americans participating in the electoral process," said McCain-Palin National Political Director Mike DuHaime. "The hotline will allow us to learn about and take steps toward remedying any voter irregularities at polling places across the country. While we are hopeful that Election Day will be free of any wrongdoing, allies of the Democrat Party, such as ACORN, have shown a willingness to commit fraud in both this election cycle and in 2004. Given the tightness of the polls, all examples of fraud must be addressed to preserve the integrity of the election."

In 2004, multiple forms of voter fraud occurred, including voter intimidation, fraudulent registrations, multiple ballots cast and votes bought for money. Already during the 2008 election cycle, a dead woman in Missouri cast an absentee ballot, individuals were arrested for voting twice in Florida and people in Ohio registered and voted on the same day.

Peachtree City Georgia Vote...

Just figured I'd cheer you up a bit:

An election was held today at the Peachtree City Elementary School. Presidential candidate John McCain was declared the winner. McCain received twice as many votes as his opponent.


It's sounding better and better out there, keep the faith, get your friends and GO VOTE!!! Make sure no one you know who's willing to vote for John McCain is staying home tomorrow!

Poll watching tomorrow?

I'm going to pick up my credentials this afternoon. If you're going to be a poll watcher, you should have rec'd some training or information with all the rules. Be careful, it can get rough.

Sarah Palin supporters are wearing RED tomorrow! Pull out those red tennis shoes, that red skirt or t-shirt or, if comfort isn't your thing, those red high heel shoes!

We can't wear any partisan paraphernalia, but we can wear red!

I am going to have to pull off my bumper stickers for tomorrow. Hate it, but they'll be back on right after I leave, have new ones in the car ready to go back on!!!

It's not too late to get someone to vote! It's legal to give rides so call your friends and see if they need a ride. You'd be surprised at how many people are registered but don't know where to go vote. Call your friends today and make sure they know where they're going.

We're going to win!

Obama Says he'll bankrupt coal industry and our electric bills will skyrocket

Obama paying people to post on blogs, twitter, etc.???

I love having all the Read My Lipstick Network blogs in my "follow" list, I learn SO much. Thanks to all of my fellow bloggers who dig up info and care to share.

So the goal is to create apathy?
November 2, 2008 rightwingchicky-->

I was listening to some Rush and reading some blogs and came across this tidbit of information. It appears that there have been paid trolls on youtube, twitter, blogs, etc to create a general sense of apathy or the feeling that it is a lost cause. I have seen plenty of these types of postings and they are all very similar in nature. Stick to talking points and frequently insulting people who have opposing views. Always laying claim that there is a landslide win for Obama. (whoever wins will NOT win by a landslide. I believe this will be a VERY close election)

John McCain on Saturday Night Live

He was funny. Loved the expressions! He's going to make a great President!!!

I posted the video on the sidebar to your right. For some reason it shut down Explorer when I tried to post it in here. I think it's because it says "NBC" on the video and my system regurgitated... But for John McCain I persevered and managed to post it on the sidebar for you. I imagine it'll be out on YouTube shortly if it isn't already there, then it'll be postable (is that a word?)

Obama: 'I Will Change The World'

I'm telling you, this man is SCARY. I'm going to go buy a bunch of guns and ammo, stock up on food for a year, put in a garden and stick my money in the mattress if he wins.

Barack Obama has promised to "change the world" if he is elected
Obama: 'I Will Change The World'
With just three days to go he and his opponent John McCain are touring key states in an effort to woo undecided voters. Senator Obama is still almost seven points ahead in the Real Clear Politics poll of polls, but the gap has narrowed slightly.

Sumbuddy else Obama don't know nuttin' about...

OK, so his auntie, the one he wrote so lovingly about in his book, has been living in a slum completely unbeknownst to the great ONE. Even though she attended his 2005 swearing in ceremony... and called him to let him know she was in Boston.

Mr. Millionaire Obama didn't know he needed to share the wealth with his auntie, who also happens to be here illegally... yep, she's an illegal alien. I know you'll get a kick out of readying the story I'm linking to below. Can you tell this reporter didn't want to be writing anything negative about The Obama? The "leak" raises questions? Imagine what would be happening if the media found out McCain had a relative living in a slum... who was an illegal to boot. Obama's campaign is going to try and get past this one by talking about it as a nasty, last minute attack. Typical. Rather than deal with the issue they go on the attack. Unfortunately, many gullible voters seem to be willing to swallow those kind of deflections.

Obama aunt leak raises questions
Obama last heard from Zeituni Onyango, who attended his swearing-in ceremony to the U.S. Senate in 2005, two years ago.
HENDERSON, Nev. — Barack Obama did not know a relative was living in the United States illegally for the past nearly four years prior to today's Associated Press report, "but obviously believes that any and all appropriate laws be followed," the campaign said Saturday in a statement.

The Democratic nominee last heard from Zeituni Onyango, who attended his swearing-in ceremony to the U.S. Senate in 2005 and is a half-sister of Obama's late father, two years ago, when she called to say she was in Boston, the campaign said. Campaign officials said they did not assist her in getting a tourist visa and had not known that she was living in America.

News of Onyango's legal status, which the AP confirmed through sources, including a federal law enforcement official, provided an unwelcome diversion for the Obama campaign during its final push toward Election Day and stoked suspicions among supporters of a political motive behind the timing of the leak.


Obama Anthem...

Thanks for finding this Grammy Crackers!!!

Obama thinks I'm selfish...

Obama is saying (broadly speaking) that anyone who doesn't buy into his tax plan is selfish.

I beg to differ. No, I don't beg, I'm telling you Mr. Obama, you are SO wrong.

I give and I give mightily. I spend a lot of time helping local charities and sit on a number of working (and I mean working) Boards. I work my butt off in my business, too. I CHOOSE who I give to though, I don't need you or any government hack telling me who I need to give my hard earned money to. (and yes, I know you're not supposed to end a sentence in a preposition)

I would bet that my percentage of monetary giving makes yours look like a distant star in the universe, too. I don't earn money when I give like you did as a "community organizer". I give because I care and because I want to make the world a little bit better.

I don't want to give my money to people who won't get off their backsides and do an honest days labor. I don't want to support illegal aliens, deadbeat dads and those who bilk the system.

I want my money to go to those who truly can't help themselves and those who need a leg up so they can get back on track.

Do you really think that by taxing the so-called rich (those making over $120,000 was the last number I heard from your campaign) and giving it to those who haven't earned it that you'll be helping the world?

Here's what's going to happen to the "rich" folks who are supporting your government:

1. They're going to stop giving as much to charity.
2. They're going to increase the price of their products.
3. They're going to lay off workers.
4. They're going to cut benefits if it's allowed in your authoritarian government.
5. They're going to stop handing out bonuses and raises.

I'm not selfish. It's people like you who expect the government to do it all who are selfish. You wouldn't roll up your sleeves and do an honest days work to help someone unless it involved a photo op with the media.

I don't mind working and I believe in giving. I just don't believe in giving the government the right to choose where I give the dollars I work hard to earn. I do believe in paying my fair share of taxes to keep this great country working like it should. However, when you and your buddies in the Senate take my tax dollars and waste them, you're getting too much from me.

Maybe Martha Stewart had it partially right when she said we'd all have to learn to budget so we could give your government more taxes. She just needs to turn the phrase around to say that you and the rest of government need to learn to budget so you don't need as much from taxpayers.
