Obama Boots Reporters from Plane
A great cartoon from our own William Warren!
Fox News: Reporters from three newspapers that endorsed John McCain have been told that they can't travel aboard Barack Obama's plane in the final days leading before Election Day.
Journalists from three major newspapers that endorsed John McCain -- the Washington Times, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News -- have been booted from Barack Obama's campaign plane for the final leg of the presidential race. The Washington Times reported Friday that it was notified of the Obama campaign's decision Thursday evening -- even though the paper has covered Obama from the start. Executive Editor John Solomon told FOXNews.com that the Obama campaign said it didn't have enough seats on the plane, but "I don't think the explanation makes sense to us." "We've been traveling since 2007 with him. ... We're a relevant newspaper -- every day we break news, . . . ... it sort of feels unfair." He said the newspaper protested but was turned down again by the campaign. "I can only hope that the candidate who describes himself as wanting to unite the nation doesn't have some sort of litmus test for who he decides gets to cover the campaign," Solomon said, noting that the Obama campaign's decision came just two days after the paper endorsed McCain. According to the The Drudge Report, the three newspapers' reporters were told to find alternative transportation by Sunday so that the plane could accommodate "network bigwigs" and reporters from two black magazines, Essence and Jet. Also joining up with the Obama campaign are the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times. According to the campaign, the decision to shuffle around reporters was made because they did not want to add a second plane.

Barack Obama & Partial Birth Abortion
The widely admired but generally pro-abortion Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-N.Y.) voted to support the partial-birth abortion ban, calling it "too close to infanticide." The late senator was right.
Now Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) leads the ranks of those who want to bring back partial-birth abortion, and he and his party, through their 2008 political platform, want U.S. taxpayers to underwrite these killings.

Dead voters cast ballots in Texas - #voterfraud
A story from our southern neighbors - H/T to Texas Watchdog: DALLAS — Widow Erma Porter sought help from Dallas County elections officials after she learned someone may have used her late husband Melvin’s name to vote — more than a year after his death. Melin Porter suffered a stroke and died in January 2007, but voting records indicate he cast a ballot in the March 4 Democratic primary held this year.
An elections official removed Melvin Porter’s name from the rolls Monday, the same day Erma Porter came to the elections office, and said workers would be alerted by the county’s computer system if anyone tried to use Melvin Porter’s name to vote early or on Election Day. But questions remain about more than 6,000 other registered voters whose personal information — names and dates of birth — matches that found in federal listings of deceased people. Texas Watchdog identified the records by reviewing the Social Security Administration’s death records alongside the Dallas County voter rolls.
Erma Porter worries that such flaws in the system make it easier for someone to commit voter fraud. “I just can’t believe it. It’s just unreal,” Erma Porter said. “Why would someone do a dead person like this?” Texas Watchdog found similar problems in Harris County’s voting records earlier this month. Since then, a number of states have been dealing with accusations of voter registration fraud against the community group ACORN, whose workers’ alleged missteps included submitting registrations — in Nevada — for players for the Dallas Cowboys. . . .

Barack Obama really is a Manchurian candidate
David Kupelian: As Election Day rapidly approaches, many Americans are wondering why so many of their countrymen reject a genuine war hero with decades of experience, one whose pro-life, limited-government values pretty much reflect those of Middle America. Instead, these same countrymen are enthralled with a man who not only has no experience or qualifications for the job, but who is, in fact, the most radically left-wing major-party presidential candidate of our lifetime, having been mentored and supported for decades by terrorists (Ayers), communists (Davis), America-hating racists (Wright) and criminals (Rezko). Doesn't make much sense . . . Just consider:
Then there's the issue of Obama's truly disturbing past. . . . ACORN . . . Barack Obama was once a Muslim . . . Even rabid anti-Semite and leader of the radical Nation of Islam group, Louis Farrakhan . . . 20 years listening to and absorbing the anti-American, racist, hate-filled sermons of Rev. Jeremiah Wright . . . William Ayers, a criminal and domestic terrorist . . . notorious convicted Chicago criminal Tony Rezko . . . Obama campaign refuses to produce a simple birth certificate to dispel persistent claims . . .
Obama, the Manchurian candidate In the classic 1962 movie thriller "The Manchurian Candidate," a man was programmed by communist handlers, and then emerged into the public arena as a hero, with a largely manufactured history, large parts of which were either obscured or changed. Then he was planted into a position of great influence, having been programmed to usher in tremendous change at the appointed time.
Barack Obama was programmed for years by his atheist, Muslim father, by the communist sex pervert Frank Marshall Davis, by con man Tony Rezko, by domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and others – most of all by black liberation theology screamer Jeremiah Wright. Obama's resume is largely manufactured. There is a total blackout on his college years. His campaign obscures what he did as a "community organizer." All his radical associations are denied or minimized. His miserable legislative record (voting "present" over 100 times to avoid taking a stand), his lack of achievement, his radical views and so on – all have been laundered through the magic of public relations into the near-sacred saga of "The One" who has been sent to serve, and to save, America. . . .

Obama Would Toss Limbaugh, Hannity From Radio
by Brad O’Leary — Barack Obama has a stunning lack of tolerance for free speech. And one thing Americans can expect from an Obama administration, and a Democratic-controlled Congress, is a legislative attempt to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine, which will limit free speech and diminish the conservative influence on talk radio...

Karl Rove - I think John McCain is Going to Win!
The Wall Street Journal: "I've said it privately, so I might as well say it here: I think John McCain is going to win this election. And, while it may not be by a truly hefty margin, I believe it will be enough so as to leave those on the political left in America standing around on Wednesday morning, wondering what the hell just happened. Of course, I could be wrong. The polls certainly say that I am, and those of you following the Berg v. Obama case know that my gut feeling, as improbable as I admitted it was, was still off when it came to the disposition of the case in district court. That being said, I have confidence in middle America, in God-fearing people who bleed red, white and blue and who know, for one reason or another, that Barack Hussein Obama just isn't right for this country."

“Get Out The Vote” Fraudsters Arrested #voterfraud
H/T to the Right Perspective who is reporting that Two Michigan residents working for a community voter registration group have been arrested for forging voter applications so non-existent people could vote. Robin Anderson and Patty Beth Wallace of Grand Rapids, MI have been charged after an investigation was launched by the City of Grand Rapids Clerk. Anderson is charged with three counts of forgery, including registering his dead brother in one instance. Wallace has been charged with four counts of forgery.
The two have admitted to the forgeries, claiming they were working to meet a deadline set by the community voter registration group Community For Voters Project. The group, which boasts of having registered over 300,000 African American and Latino voters in ten states, has been the center of voter fraud controversy in the past, including an incident this past summer in Milwaukee, WI.

Obama Speechwriter Defects Democratic Party, Endorses McCain
The Cleveland Leader: Usually the "October Surprise" doesn't come from one of your campaign's own speechwriters. In Barack Obama's case, it has. Wendy Button, a speech writer for Democratic Party candidates for the past ten years, announced that she would no longer support the party she once believed in and would instead be casting her ballot this election for the opposition - John McCain, the Republican candidate.
The lack of mainstream media coverage of Button's defection from the Democratic Party would have you believe that she quietly switched sides, but that's simply not the case. Button presented a very well thought out explanation of her decision to defect from the Democratic Party and the disillusionment this election season has bestowed upon her through a contribution at TheDailyBeast.com. Button describes in great detail her level of involvement and commitment to the Democratic Party. She has not only helped Barack Obama with his speeches, but she was also a speechwriter for Hillary Clinton and John Edwards.
Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional," wrote Button.Button described the Democratic Party as almost like family, but says that now "it doesn't even feel like a distant cousin." The party's treatment of women, and the way that they mocked and smeared "Joe the Plumber", a working class American, has left her disgusted and disillusioned. As she says, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me.” Summing up her somewhat long-winded explanation, Button said:
"I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that. And also say that the Democratic Party’s talking points—that Senator John McCain is just four more years of the same and that he’s President Bush—are now just hooker lines that fit a very effective and perhaps wave-winning political argument…doesn’t mean they’re true. After all, he is the only one who’s worked in a bipartisan way on big challenges. . . .

If You Don't Want Socialism ...
A poem is making it around the Internet especially by email. Normally we don't past on poems of this type, but this time the unknown author(s) went to a great deal of effort to identify numerous issues and make a very good point:
An added Prayer: Give us, Lord, a President after your own heart. May integrity and uprightness protect him and may he live blamelessly, trusting you without wavering. Walking continually in your truth, may he never neglect his time with you, however busy, whatever the crisis. May he hear you clearly and follow you faithfully.

Bill Ayers's Scary Plans for Public Schools
by Phyllis Schlafly: Will William Ayers be Secretary of Education in a Barack Obama Administration? All parents should ponder that possibility before making their choice for President on November 4. After all, Ayers is a friend of Obama, and Professor Ayers's expertise is training teachers and developing public school curriculum. That's been his mission since he gave up planting bombs in government buildings (including the U.S. Capitol and the Pentagon) and assaulting police officers. . . .
From his prestigious and safe university position, Ayers has been teaching teachers and students in rebellion against American capitalism and what he calls "imperialism" and "oppression." The code words for the Ayers curriculum are "social justice," a "transformative" vision, "critical pedagogy," "liberation," "capitalist injustices," "critical race theory," "queer theory," and of course multiculturalism and feminism. That language is typical in the readings that Ayers assigns in his university courses. He admits he is a "communist street fighter" who has been influenced by Karl Marx, as well as Che, Ho and Malcolm X. Ayers speaks openly of his desire to use America's public school classrooms to train a generation of revolutionaries who will overturn the U.S. social and economic regime. He teaches that America is oppressive and unjust, socialism is the solution, and wealth and resources should be redistributed.
In Ayers's course called "On Urban Education," he calls for a "distribution of material and human resources." His left-wing notions would be very compatible with those of Barack Obama, who publicly told Joe the Plumber that we should "spread the wealth." Ayers's books are among the most widely used in America's education schools. Ayers even uses science and math courses as part of his "transformative" political strategy to teach that the American economic system is unjust.
Ayers is an endorser of a book called "Queering Elementary Education" by William J. Letts IV and James T. Sears, a collection of essays to teach adults and children to "think queerly." The blurb on the cover quotes Ayers as saying this is "a book for all teachers . . . and, yes, it has an agenda." Unfortunately, Ayers's far-out education theories are already having an effect in education schools. One after another, teachers colleges are using their courses to promote socialist notions of wealth distribution, "social justice," diversity and environmentalism, and to punish students who resist this indoctrination by giving them low grades or even denying them graduation. The Department of Education lists 15 high schools whose mission statements declare that their curricula center on "social justice."
Propaganda about Obama is already finding favor with textbook publishers. The McDougal Littell 8th-grade advanced-English literature book (copyright 2008, Houghton Mifflin Co.) has 15 pages featuring Barack Obama and his "life of service." Most of Ayers's socialist propaganda is financed with taxpayers' money at state universities and teachers colleges. Some of the schools that have adopted Ayers-style pedagogy have received grants from ACORN or from Bill Gates's charitable foundation. You might assume that Ayers's political ideas would put him on the outer fringe of the left-wing education establishment. However, his peers recently elected him to serve as vice president for curriculum in the American Education Research Association, the largest organization of education school professors and researchers. Is an appointment to the U.S. Department of Education his next career advancement? Is Ayers's transformative public school curriculum the kind of "change" Obama will bring us?

Joe And The Homeless
by Gary Bauer: Two news stories out of Ohio yesterday provide us with a telling glimpse into the leftwing mindset of America’s elites. A federal judge (a Clinton appointee) ruled that homeless people can list their “park bench” as a valid “home” for the purposes of voting. Now, obviously, this ruling makes voter fraud much more likely. But the Left, knowing it can exploit these “voters,” will make grand idealistic arguments that a liberal federal judge will buy into regarding the “rights” of the homeless. And there are widespread reports of street people being given alcohol and money in exchange for voting for Obama.
Contrast this with how Ohio government officials have treated another citizen – Joe Wurzelbacher, the now famous plumber. Joe pays taxes. His taxes go, in part, to help the homeless. He lives in a home. He is a free citizen of these great United States. He is an informed voter. He responsibly exercised his right of free speech to tell a candidate for public office that if he raised taxes, it would hurt people like Joe, who is working very hard to buy his own small business.
As of today, at least three Ohio government employees (including a police clerk!) have admitted to using government computers and resources to find information on Joe to smear him in the public square. The contrast could scarcely be more stark. The Left exploits the homeless for its own political gain and endangers the integrity of our elections, while it declares war on the shop keeper, the plumber, the entrepreneur and the businessman.

Obama to spread wealth to whole world
Today we mix a political cartoon with an insightful letter to the editor published Sunday in the Little Rock Arkansas Democrat Gazette and Jonesboro Sun newspaper. While the first make the point with humor, the second is both enlightening and possibly fearful.
Oct 27, 2008 Letter to editor by Berniece Evans, Bono, Arkansas: I wonder how Obama intends to fund the proposal in the Global Poverty Act (S.2433) in which Obama is the primary sponsor. This bill would commit the United States to "the reduction of global poverty…and the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people in poverty … who live on less than $1 a day" by 2015 [a step in the direction of a global tax].
Obama's choice for Vice-President, Joe Biden, pushed this Global Poverty Act through his committee. Not only does Obama's policies (like other liberal Democrats) support the redistribution of wealth in our own nation, but he also wants to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world through this Global Poverty Act.
Does anyone think Obama, labeled the most liberal Democrat in the Senate will really cut taxes on the middle class like he promises if he becomes President? Even if he wanted to cut taxes, does anyone believe the liberal Democrats, that are predicted to have total control over the House and Senate in the next session, would let him?
How can we believe Obama feels the pain of the impoverished when he and his wife reported $4.2 million in income last year while he has a brother living in a shack in Kenya on a dollar a month? In light of all the financial problems we are now enduring, can we afford a Barack Obama presidency, especially since he wants to redistribute our wealth to the whole world?
Even the poor in the US are rich by the world standards. I wonder just how eager the poor in America (who are supposed to be on Obama's receiving end of the distribution of wealth in the US ) will be to spread their wealth around the world as Obama wants to do in the Poverty Act. [End of Letter]

McCain's Two Joe's Strategy Delayed by Obama
ARRA Editoral Comment: LOL - Borowitz Report: In a move unprecedented in the annals of presidential politics, Republican presidential nominee John McCain announced today that he was sending Democratic vice presidential nominee Joseph Biden on a campaign trip to several key swing states.
"I told Joe, I will pay your plane fare, hotels, all your expenses," Sen. McCain said. "Just get out there and say whatever's on your mind, my friend." Sen. McCain added one small caveat: "Whatever you do, don't edit yourself."
The Arizona's senator's unusual proposal is part of what one aide called the campaign's "Two Joes" strategy. "For the next two weeks, this campaign is going to be all about two Joes," said McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds. "Joe the Plumber and Joe the Blabber."
But the McCain campaign's plans were short-lived as Sen. Barack Obama today announced plans of his own for talkative running mate: "Between now and the election, Joe Biden will be reaching out to voters in Antarctica and possibly the Moon." Sen. Biden said he was grateful for the assignment, adding, "I will be proud to serve under Barack Obama, especially when one of our enemies tries to test him with a full-on nuclear attack. Kerblooey!!!!"

Big Red Flag - Spread the Wealth
Obama’s Hawaii Trips Cost More Than Palin’s Clothes
By Ronald Kessler: Barack Obama’s trips to Hawaii on a chartered Boeing 757 each cost more than twice the price of Sarah Palin’s new clothes. Brad Blakeman, who was in charge of scheduling for President Bush, says a Boeing 757 costs about $20,000 an hour for fuel, crew, and maintenance. Since a trip to Hawaii entails 10 hours of flying time from Chicago, the total cost for each round-trip comes to about $400,000.
Obama used the Boeing 757 for trips to Hawaii over the summer for a vacation and again last week to see his failing grandmother. Admirable though that visit was, “By Obama using a private jet to go on a purely personal visit to see his grandma, he’s wasting not only energy, but he’s using the money that his supporters have given him for campaign purposes,” Blakeman says. “It’s a purely personal visit paid for with campaign funds.” On the other hand, the media are highlighting the Republican National Committee’s purchase of $150,000 in clothes for Palin, even though the dresses will be donated to charities. The New York Times played the story on page one. . . . [Obama's Hawaii Trips Cost More Than Palin's Clothes]

One mother of a kindergartner who attends Faith Ringgold School of Art and Science, a K-8 charter school in Hayward, Calif., said she asked her 5-year-old daughter what she was learning at school. The little girl replied, "We're learning to be allies." The mother also said a Gay Straight Alliance club regularly meets in the kindergarten classroom during lunch.

Democrats Sink to New Low in Ohio Legislative Race
by Bobby Eberle: To say that we are in troubling times is a huge understatement. We have an organization like ACORN running around the country in a blatant attempt to steal an election. We have a Democrat presidential candidate garnering huge support by talking about "hope" and "change" while never being questioned about his socialist agenda. We have the media carrying his water. And, of course, we have the media, whose blatant bias for Barack Obama throws the integrity of the whole profession into question.
There is another problem which has been seen over and over again with the Democrats, and it has now shown up in a legislative race in Ohio. That problem is the double standard that the media and Democrats hold Republicans too. How dare anyone question Barack Obama's associations. It doesn't matter that one of his chief financial backers is a convicted felon, or that one of his political mentors is an unapologetic terrorist, or that his long-time spiritual advisor engages is America bashing. All that is off limits. However, as we see in the race between Ohio State Rep. Josh Mandel and his Democrat opponent Bob Belovich, nothing is out of bounds for the Democrats, including attacking Mandel's service in Iraq and his religion. . . . The real problem here is the double standard to which the media treats Republicans and Democrats. Where is the outrage?!?! Someone puts their life on the line to serve our country in Iraq, and that service is used against him? This is disgraceful, and the use of religion is equally pathetic. . . .

A New Welfare State Under Obama
by Ken Blackwell: Thanks to Joe the Plumber, we now know for sure that Barack Obama wants to "spread the wealth around." But the Democratic candidate still hasn't come clean on just how much of a European-style socialist he is. Look at the "tax cut" he says he'll give to 95% of Americans. In fact, this is simply a government check he'd hand out - including to millions who don't pay income taxes, since each year 38% of Americans already get a full refund. In other words, his "rebate" is a welfare plan, plain and simple.
When called on this, Obama's answer is that those 38% still pay payroll taxes, so he's rebating part of those payments. But that actually puts him deeper into the socialist hole. Here's why. Payroll taxes go to fund Social Security and Medicare - the main US social-insurance programs. The taxes are dedicated because these are insurance programs - you're paying so that you'll be covered when you hit retirement age.
But, down the line, these programs face a financial crisis even worse than the housing mess that we're in now. They need literally trillions more dollars (above what they're set to take in) to meet their current obligations. By federal law, absent those new funds, every retiree will automatically have his or her benefits cut. If Obama means to rebate those payroll taxes from the Social Security/Medicare funds, he's accelerating the bankruptcy of those programs. If not, he's still transferring money from people who pay income taxes to those who don't.
There's more: Either way, Obama is effectively changing these cores of American retirement from social insurance programs to European-style social welfare programs: Instead of each of us paying into the fund, and later collecting on that basis, some people will be paying in less to collect the same benefit. That's a flat-out repudiation of President Franklin Roosevelt's vision in founding Social Security, and of the promise that's always underlain Medicare. Neither was ever supposed to become a charity program - but Obama's pointing down just that road.
The Obama double bind is either bankrupt our nation's retirement programs or put the nation on the path to European-style socialism. Which is it? No wonder Obama is so popular is Europe: The Europeans finally found an American who thinks like they do. (And they won't mind in the least when we start suffering the sky-high unemployment and lack of economic growth that socialism has given them.) Of course, Obama knows that the term "socialist" would kill his plan, so he calls it a "refund" instead. But there's no way it's not socialist; he's either:
• Giving a "refund" on taxes people never paid to start with,
• Moving us drastically closer to the day Social Security and Medicare go bankrupt, requiring a massive bailout by other sources of taxation,
• Or outright turning the core federal retirement funds into welfare programs.
So, which is it? Of course, the mainstream media won't force him to answer that question - they're shamelessly in the tank for him. So it's up to voters to force Obama to answer - to explain how his tax plan is (somehow) neither socialism nor a deadly blow to Social Security and Medicare. The deficit now runs hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Yet Obama proposes almost $1 trillion of new spending - and promises to also give "rebates" to the 38% of us who pay no income tax. Where is that money coming from? He's put himself in a fiscal box.

Zogby: Obama Leads 75% to 15% With Dead Voters
ARRA Editoral Comment: LOL - Free Republic — As if gaining with female and Catholic voters wasn't enough, Democratic President-to-be Barack Obama now leads John McCain with 75% of registered dead voters. McCain draws the support of just 15% of corpses, with the remaining 10% are undecided. When numbers are adjusted to from registered to likely dead voters, Obama loses just 2% of the vote.
"This is proof that Obama appeals to people of all ages," said an anonymous Obama spokesperson. When asked why he supports Obama, dead actor Humphrey Bogart said, "Mr. Obama is such an eloquent speaker. He could be an actor." Deceased James Dean added, "Like me, Obama is a rebel without a cause." "Sheesh, even with dead Hollywood stars, there is a liberal bias!" complained a McCain/Palin supporter.
Not all dead Hollywood stars are supporting Obama. John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart will be speaking at the Dead Republican Rally on Monday. Rumor has it that Ronald Reagan will be in attendance. Meanwhile, Obama has also started gaining support amongst fictional characters, animals and imaginary friends.

Joe Biden Gets Angry at ABC Reporter
H/T Politik Ditto: Finally, a member of the press, outside of FOX News, asks a member of the Obama campaign real questions on the issues. The other day Florida WFTV Channel 9's Barbara West put Joe Biden on the hot seat over ACORN, voter fraud, Barack Obama's "spread the wealth" comments and even asks if Obama is a "Marxist".
The result? BestInterview Ever:
The Gaffe-Master was so upset, that Biden had the Obama campaign cancel an interview the station had scheduled with his wife, Jill, along with all future interviews. West better be careful she doesn't get sued as Obama's been known to do when people dare to question the one-term senator's ability to lead a nation, much less question who he associates with.

5 Reasons To Think Twice Before Voting for Obama
by Mike Huckabee: Yesterday, I sent an email to key supporters asking them to pass on five of my reasons not to support Barack Obama:
1. Goodbye, 2nd amendment rights.
2. Goodbye, protection for the unborn.
3. Goodbye, diligence against state sponsored terrorism from rogue governments like Iran, North Korea, and others.
4. Goodbye, parental rights as a fundamental right to not be supplanted by the government.
5. Goodbye, holding traditional marriage as one man, one woman for life.
Now, I am asking each of you . . . t to do the same. Type up your five reasons why Obama should not be President and pass them on to at least five friends. Encourage them to then do the same.
