Payback: union labor might be requirement on federal construction projects (example: the stimulus bill) - 02/07/09

On Friday, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order [1] that contains this: ...it is the policy of the Federal Government to encourage executive agencies to consider requiring the use of project labor agreements in connection with large-scale construction projects in order to promote economy and efficiency in Federal procurement. "Project labor agreements" mean the exclusive use of union labor, as...

Assignment: document Obama, FEMA, MSM response to ice storms in Kentucky - 02/02/09

... others. And, find out whether Barack Obama has paid as much attention to this issue as he would have had it occurred in a state that voted for him. First, on January 29, he signed an emergency declaration: whitehouse.gov/president-obama-declares-emergencies-in-arkansas-and-kentucky Has he spoken about this since then? Second, see the sycophantic report from CNN here called "KY Governor: Obama...

January 20 is now the "National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation" - 01/20/09

... of his first acts, president Barack Obama has issued a proclamation on Whitehouse dot gov proclaiming that January 20 is our new "National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation". Unfortunately, what exactly that means isn't explained, although the presumed subtext doesn't sound too good at all. The page whitehouse.gov/blog/a_national_day_of_renewal_and_reconciliation quotes Abraham Lincoln and then...

Obama's Organizing for America: a corps of supporters answerable only to him? Fight disasters and political enemies? (CNSF) - 01/17/09

The Barack Obama movement is about to get even creepier, with his announcement of "Organizing for America" ("OFA"), part of "Barack Obama 2.0", the continuation of his campaign even after he's been elected president. From this: "As President, I will need the help of all Americans to meet the challenges that lie ahead," Obama said in a video message e-mailed to supporters (and reporters) this...

The "Citizen's Briefing Book", the latest Barack Obama scam - 01/16/09

The latest scam from the Barack Obama camp is a "Citizen's Briefing Book" at change dot gov: citizensbriefingbook.change.gov It allows the citizens to submit policy ideas in one of several categories, and then others vote up or down those ideas. The categories are mostly the same as those featured in their highly similar Open for Questions. Like Open for Questions, the current effort is designed...

Obama releases official portrait: first taken with digital camera. Obama fan reveals ignorance. - 01/14/09

... out, so I'll just point out that Barack Obama's official portrait has been released, and it's the first to be taken with a digital camera: change.gov/page/-/officialportrait.jpg That's not really noteworthy in itself, but in case you want to continue to be amazed at just how ignorant Obama's fans are, the post by "SilentPatriot" from which I learned this momentous news (crooksandliars.com/...

Obama dines with illegal immigration-supporting conservatives David Brooks and ? - 01/13/09

Earlier tonight, Barack Obama went to George Will's house in Chevy Chase, Maryland for a no doubt jovial evening with a few (or more) conservative pundits. Will may or may not have been there, but three known attendees were Fred Barnes (see the update), William Kristol, David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer (link). FWIW, the Huffington Post assures us that Rush Limbaugh was not there. We have (...

Mexico's Calderon meets Obama, proposes "strategic alliance"; immigration; NAFTA - 01/12/09

... president Felipe Calderon met with Barack Obama for an hour and a half earlier today in Washington DC. After the meeting, Calderon said: "I've proposed to President Obama that we make a strategic alliance of our two governments to confront the common problems and resolve them together, among them security." And, it looks like Obama is open to that idea; see the statement from change dot gov...

"Dear Rod": form letter from Obama to Blagojevich - 01/06/09

... to Rod Blagojevich; one from Barack Obama himself, the other from his transition team. PDFs at that link. Unfortunately, both appear to be form letters sent out after the National Governors Association on December 2, 2008 in Philadelphia. The one from Obama pawns off all contact on Nick Rathod. The other letter is from Valerie Jarrett, John Podesta, and Pete Rouse, and likewise pawns off contact...

Henry Kissinger: Obama can create a "New World Order" - 01/06/09

... the most important thing is for Barack Obama?" The response: "....His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a "New World Order" can be created . It's a great opportunity. It isn't such a crisis." UPDATE: They aren't even hiding it anymore. Kissinger offers an editorial called "The chance for a new world order" (link): ...The financial collapse...

What Michelle Obama's "court ordered inactive status" as a lawyer means - 01/05/09

... (Michelle Lavaughn Robinson) and Barack Obama's record is here, including his full name. His status is listed as "Voluntarily inactive and not authorized to practice law - Last Registered Year: 2008". While there doesn't seem to be anything to this story, don't worry: there's plenty more to discuss about Barry and Michelle.

Obama releases "answers" to change.gov user-generated "questions" (420, dude) - 12/15/08

Barack Obama's change dot gov recently asked the citizens to submit questions which he would deign to answer. Now, the answers to the "top" questions have been released here. The questions were weak, the answers were weak and could have been gleaned from Obama's positions. All that was predictable; see the discussion of popular voting systems. First, my question - tougher than any of the others I...

Obama/Blago picture deleted from Illinois state website - 12/15/08

Remember the picture of Barack Obama "conferring" with recently-arrested Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich? If not, see this 12/10 post. Now, the state of Illinois has deleted from their website the PDF that contained that picture. It was in the state publication "Governors Gazette" and originally at illinois.gov/govgazette/pdfs/Gazetteedition_2008Nov.pdf That page now returns a 404 not found, as...

New Obama scam: visitors vote for questions he'll be asked - 12/10/08

Barack Obama has recently launched a new effort that lets visitors to change dot gov submit questions he should be asked. Others then vote those questions up or down, and he'll presumably answer the top rated questions at some point in time: change.gov/page/content/openforquestions This is, in a word, a scam: it shares the same huge design flaw as other popular voting systems in which weak...

KHQA pulls 11/5 article on Obama meeting with Blagojevich (cached copy) - 12/10/08

... senate seat?", which said that Barack Obama would be meeting with recently-arrested Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich on the afternoon of 11/5. It was previously at this link, but that now says it's "unavailable". However, here's a copy from the Google cache: Ill. governor meeting with Obama today By Carol Sowers Wednesday, November 05, 2008 at 10:39 a.m. CHICAGO, ILL. -- Now that Barack Obama...

Photo: Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich confer about Senate replacement - 12/10/08

... the following undated photo of Barack Obama speaking privately with recently-arrested IL governor Rod Blagojevich. It could conceivably have taken place months before and in relation to something else, but there's a very good chance it was taken sometime just after Obama was elected. A screengrab of the first page of the Gazette is here. The PDF of the Gazette is here. Note that the text of that...

Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich arrested by FBI on federal corruption charges; accused of trying to sell Obama's senate seat - 12/09/08

... been arrested for trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat. And, Barack Obama - or at least his advisor Valerie Jarrett - probably knew what he was doing; see the "SEIU Official" paragraph below. And, Obama may have lied about his recent conversations with Blago; see the first update. Uh-oh: Obama might be more worried about this than it would at first appear; see the second update. From a U...

My new favorite actress is Heather Zichal (Aaron Sorkin's 'ChangeDotGov') - 11/19/08

... staffer (link) who was candidate Barack Obama's Policy Director for Energy, Environment and Agriculture (Season One) and who's now on his transition team in the new season. Not only that, but this segment was written by Lawrence O'Donnell! EMBARRASSING UPDATE: I was just IM'ed by Perez Hilton, and he informed me that Zichal isn't an actress, but a real person! In fact, all of this is real, and...

Zogby poll shows how misinformed Obama's supporters are (and is yet another example of Obama's opponents making mistakes) - 11/19/08

... documentary including interviews with Barack Obama supporters showing how ignorant and/or misinformed they are. His site (link) also includes a Zogby poll he commissioned that tries to show the same thing. Unfortunately, some of the questions that are supposedly true either aren't true or are disputed. So, it's a two-fer. The poll shows not only how misinformed many Obama supporters are, but...

Jesse Washington/AP's supposed "outbreak of racial anger" after Obama win - 11/16/08

... after the election of Democrat Barack Obama". Oddly, I don't recall much of a glow after his surrogates - now including Washington - constantly tried to portray Obama's opponents as racists. In fact, I don't think anyone who doesn't work for or serve as a surrogate for Obama (including the MSM) could locate such a glow. In other words, Washington just invented it. From California to Maine,...

Discuss president-elect Barack Obama's radio/Youtube address (November 15, 2008) - 11/15/08

Our beloved president-elect Barack Obama is offering his new weekly speech not just as a radio address but also as an online video: youtube.com/watch?v=Zd8f9Zqap6U (also available at AOL, MSN, and Yahoo). On Youtube at least, almost every form of interaction is disabled: no ratings, comments, or video replies are allowed. The only sign of the outside world are the "sites linking to this video...

Defeating Obama was easy, it's just that no one wanted to do it - 11/13/08

Barack Obama could have been easily defeated. The problem was that many people concentrated on ineffective means to oppose him and no leaders pushed effective plans.

Barack Obama faked Selective Service registration? - 11/13/08

Barack Obama might have faked his Selective Service registration; see this. Schlussel has a copy of the form that Obama supposedly filled out as well as a print-out associated with the form. And, things don't add up. I'll let you wade through the details, but there actually appears to be something there.

Brooks Jackson/FactCheck spins Obama's Civilian National Security Force - 11/13/08

... serves as a reflexive defender of Barack Obama rather than a fact checker.

In the tank: Google Maps front pages "Obama's Journey" - 11/12/08

... CEO Eric Schmidt is a member of Barack Obama's Economic Transition Team (link), so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the increasingly-political company he heads has given the president-elect (and Joe Biden) a special treat that they've probably already gawked over. In Obama's case, he might even have had a private chuckle over it too. If you go to maps.google.com near post time, you'...

Gebe Martinez/Politico misleads about role of "Hispanic vote" in Obama win - 11/12/08

Ethno-boosting hack Gebe Martinez of the Politico offers "GOP must tone down rhetoric to woo Latinos" (link): More than 10 million Hispanics voted last week, up from 7.6 million in 2004. If Hispanics were removed from the tallies, McCain would have had the winning edge in the battleground states of Indiana and New Mexico. Latinos also were a major factor in his losses in the former red states of...

Take the Chicago Barack Obama Challenge! (list of all of Obama's mainstream associates) - 11/12/08

Barack Obama supporters, I'm throwing the floor open to you. Will you dare take the Chicago Barack Obama Challenge? In comments, please list all the past associates of BHO who are completely mainstream. Just people, not organizations. And, "past" means those prior to, say, 2004 and doesn't include, say, his current associates, those who simply endorsed him at any time, and the like. "...

Portland pre-teens want to name school after Barack Obama - 11/12/08

One of the highly effective but largely ignored ways that Obama could have been opposed before the election would be to point out his cult-like followers as well as his plan to get pre-teens to join his movement.

Obama cabinet might include Democrat titans: Gore, Napolitano, Vilsack, Howard Dean, Caroline Kennedy... - 11/11/08

The Barack Obama cabinet might include such Democratic Party titans as Al Gore, Arizona governor Janet Napolitano, former Iowa governor Tom Vilsack, Caroline Kennedy, Howard Dean, Bill Richardson, John Kerry, and many more truly titanic names. This link has a "transition flowchart", a PDF showing some potential picks and all of them are truly great figures who will help the Repu... er, I mean the...

Obama spins Civilian National Security Force as for Iraq rebuilding - 11/11/08

Back in July, Barack Obama gave a speech in Colorado where he proposed creating a "Civilian National Security Force". That was just in one line of the speech, and it didn't appear in the version as prepared for delivery (copy here). Since that time, many have speculated over what he could have meant, and just recently Georgia congressman Paul Broun compared the creation of such groups to that in...

Cached copy of Barack Obama's change.gov agenda section - 11/10/08

Barack Obama's change.gov - the official president-elect transition site - deleted their entire Agenda section over the weekend. There's apparently a cached copy here, although I haven't verified it since I didn't bother saving off my own copy. UPDATE: There's a better-looking version from Google's cache here. As with the other one I didn't verify it.

National Council of Ethnic Americans demands equal representation in Obama cabinet - 11/09/08

... following missive: President-Elect Barack Obama: We are the Ethnic-Americans. During the election you reached out to us (my.barackobama.com/page/content/eahome) and asked for our support.

Mandatory community service still included in Obama's preK-12 education plan - 11/08/08

... we discussed how one page at Barack Obama's new change.gov site said he'd push for mandatory community service. The campaign later changed that page to match the more voluntary-oriented statements the campaign made elsewhere. However, there's still one thing they'll probably want to send down the memory hole. The file barackobama.com/pdf/issues/PreK-12EducationFactSheet.pdf (available under...

Washington Post admits coverage tilted to Obama, doesn't admit their incredibly biased coverage for him and their lies for him - 11/08/08

... WaPo's lightest weight coverage of Barack Obama yet? * Ed O'Keefe of the Washington Post promoted a BHO campaign ad without noting that it took a John McCain quote out of context; Howard Kurtz of the WaPo also failed to note the full context for the quote. * Ed O'Keefe earlier helped Obama spread lies about Rush Limbaugh when he promoted a BHO campaign video and didn't point out the incredibly...

AVWatch: Barack Obama's economic advisors include... Antonio Villaraigosa - 11/07/08

... group - is one of the members of Barack Obama's economic advisory board. Even the L.A.

Obama's aunt gets immigration lawyer, considers appeal (to prevent President Barack from deporting her?) - 11/07/08

... anyone else to point out that Barack Obama supported his illegal alien own aunt being deported at the same time as he opposed the deportations of millions of illegal aliens he's never even met. Pushing that story would help dispel the widespread feeling among his supporters that he's all sweetness and light.

"Latinos push for Cabinet posts": NCLR, MALDEF, NALEO trying to embed supporters in Obama administration - 11/07/08

... be named to positions in the Barack Obama administration. Actually, it appears they want a quota system. And, it's not really "Latinos" as a group, but the familiar far-left pressure groups such as the NCLR, MALDEF, and NALEO. The second has an indirect link to the Mexican government, and the last has a direct link. The ethnic boosting "reporter" Gebe Martinez of the Politico offers "Latinos...

Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel want mandatory community service?; contradicts earlier statements; 100 hours/year in college - 11/07/08

Yet more fun with Barack Obama's president-elect website change.gov, as the page change.gov/americaserves has this: Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. This "requirement" contradicts not only past statements, but another...
