Drudge: Zogby: McCain in lead 48-47!

Check out the Drudge headline as of 7pm MST (that's 7pm PDT for those of you unaware that AZ doesn't do the clock shift).

Zogby: McCain moves into lead 48-47 in one day polling!

Obama demonstrates Liberal Fascism

The Obama campaign is ousting the reporters of three newspapers because those papers editorial boards have endorsed his oponent.

This is a direct attack on the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. Intimidation of a free press.

Silencing the opposition.

Intimidation of citizens from speaking out (Joe The Plumber!)

This is a perfect illustration of facism.

How long before the Secret Service knocks on my door for maligning The One?

Sarah Palin - Voice of America

Here's a nice article at NRO by Michael Novak entitled "Listening to Sarah; She is a happy American warrior", which I ran across after posting the link just below...
Every time I hear Sarah Palin talking — more and more to jubilant overflow crowds — I hear the voice of America speaking. The other day, I was calling a bank in the small town in Iowa in which my wife Karen grew up (the same hometown as the Nobel Prize winner Norman Borlaug). After a few sentences, I told the clerk speaking on the telephone that she sounded just like Sarah Palin, and not only because she once answered me “you betcha.” My nephew, who goes to school in the same town, had just handed in a school paper in which he wrote: “Sarah Palin talks just like us.”

A few weeks before, my aunt in western Pennsylvania (John Murtha’s district, recently cruelly slandered by him), celebrated her 80-something birthday with a large surprise party attended by her whole side of the family. A great deal of kindness and mutual concern passed from person to person. I heard many voices that sound a good bit like Sarah Palin’s. The same guts. The same common sense. The same instincts. The same sense of America.

I wonder if most of the people who are today dissing Sarah Palin, at least among a few conservatives I greatly admire, are more accustomed to debating highly educated liberals. Could it be that they understand the diction of journalism and the academy better than they understand the speech of most of America? They understand the maturity, sophistication, and rationalization of their own world better than the simpler but truer instincts of most of America.

I can’t help thinking, when I hear them, that it is not Sarah Palin they feel far superior to, and embarrassed by. It is the life and common sense of most of the humbler American people — and not only in rural areas, but also in the myriad cities and towns that have populations of 100,000 or less. More Americans live in such environments than in the large “sophisticated” cities. And it is they who seem disproportionately to give their lives for this country, more so than the rest of America. Not coincidentally, the schools in these smaller towns seem to hold to considerably higher standards than those in the big cities. And more people in them seem to be in touch with the frontier traditions of America (even western Pennsylvania was once the frontier) than in more “sophisticated” environments.


Just because Alaska is far from New York, she later said, doesn’t mean Alaskans don’t read. The same magazines and papers come there as everywhere else in America. And it is not obvious that the more you read them, let me add, the better in touch with reality you become.
Read the whole thing!

First actual exit poll - McCain landslide!

The first actual exit poll reported on from the National Review blog of Tom Gross

First exit poll of actual American votes from Israel shows big McCain win

Within the last hour, the first exit poll of 817 Americans in Israel, who attended U.S. election voting events in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv on Tuesday evening to vote by absentee ballot, has been released.

A startling 76 percent of those polled said that they had voted for John McCain. This contrasts sharply with pre-election polls of American Jews in the U.S., which indicate a strong preference for Obama.

The exit poll findings of American voters in Israel are all the more surprising because less than one in four were registered Republicans, and 46% of registered Democrats living in Israel said they had crossed party lines to vote McCain. By contrast, the Republican crossover to Obama was minimal – just 2%.

The votes are significant as almost half of the 42,000 registered U.S. voters living in Israel come from key swing states including Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In the 2000 and 2004 elections, Israel had the third-largest group of American voters abroad, after Canada and Britain. The exit poll was commissioned by, an independent, non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting voter registration and participation amongst American citizens living in Israel.

Come on Americans. Wherever you vote, vote for real American values (not Gramscian Marxism!)

Redneck Date

Hugh Hewitt recently launched a website, amazefm, where musicians and bands can upload their original music which Hugh then plays on his show. Once a week, the top voted song is played in full on the Hugh Hewitt radio show. Here's one called Redneck Date which seems to have been written in response to Murtha calling his own constituents Rednecks:

I love it!

Come on Joe, sue the pants off those arrogant jerks!

Imagine the private details of your life splashed all over the world just because you had the audacity to ask The One a difficult question which it then stumbled over!

Come on Joe! Sue the pants off those who think they are above the law!

Records searches anger Joe the Plumber
The Toledo-area man, who was elevated to fame after he challenged Democrat Barack Obama over his tax policies during a street-side chat, formally endorsed McCain at the Flag Lady's Flag Store in the Beechwold neighborhood.

Authorities in Toledo and Cleveland confirmed today that workers accessed Wurzelbacher's driving record and vehicle information through state computer systems in checks uncovered by The Dispatch.

The Toledo Police Department announced that a records clerk improperly pulled Wurzelbacher's information on behalf of a reporter for a Toledo television station the day after the Oct. 15 presidential debate.

The clerk has been charged with gross misconduct and faces a disciplinary hearing, said Chief Michael Navarre. He declined to identify the TV station but said the reporter confirmed asking for a check on Wurzelbacher's address.

The Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency also said an employee's computer was used to improperly access Bureau of Motor Vehicles records on Wurzelbacher. The employee denies involvement.

Another access of Wurzelbacher's information, by an outside contractor with access to an attorney general's office test account, is being investigated by the State Highway Patrol.

Inspector General Thomas P. Charles also is investigating why the director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services approved a check on Wurzelbacher through the state's child-support computer system.

Director Helen Jones-Kelley said that after a "team meeting," she OK'd the check because the department often runs inquiries to check for unpaid child support on people thrust into "the public spotlight."

Wurzelbacher said he has custody of his 13-year-old son and neither pays nor receives child support, leaving him puzzled about why he would be checked.

Jones-Kelley said there were no political motivations behind the check. The Democratic appointee has contributed the maximum $2,300 to the Obama campaign this year, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Ohio Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland, wrote Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland that he was disturbed by Jones-Kelley's actions and statements. He asked for records and an explanation.

"Ohioans are once again questioning the stewardship of their information," Harris wrote today. He also said he did not share Strickland's confidence that there were no political overtones to the Wurzelbacher check.

State Rep. William G. Batchelder, R-Medina, called for the director to be placed on leave until the investigation is complete.
Strickland spokesman Keith Dailey attributed the Republicans' actions to "baseless political attacks" amid a campaign in which McCain trails.

Come on Joe! Get 'em! They deserve to be very concerned about their future - their current jobs and their ability to get others (since they should be fired!). They deserve to be afraid of legal punishment! They don't deserve to be forgiven without first experiencing the consequences of their actions, learning the lesson of how wrong their actions were, and soliciting your forgiveness on their own.

Redneck Girl....Hell Yeah!

More support for Joe The Plumber

Joe The Plumber about to be vindicated!

Clerk charged with unlawful search of Joe the Plumber

Toledo Police have confirmed that a TPD records clerk is accused of performing an illegal search of information related to 'Joe the Plumber.'

Julie McConnell, has been charged with Gross Misconduct for allegedly making an improper inquiry into a state database in search of information pertaining to Samuel Wurzelbacher on Oct. 16.

Wurzelbacher came under the spotlight after being spoken about during the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain.

The inquiry into Wurzelbacher's record is a violation of department and state policy governing the use of the Law Enforcement Automated Data System. The clerk is under fire for making the inquiry for a non-law enforcement purpose.

McConnell was hired by the Toledo Police Department in April 1995 and assigned to the Investigative Services Bureau.

A discplinary hearing will be scheduled within the next ten days.

First the lefties call our troops terrorists; now Obama calls our police officers terrorists

Obama: Police Officers are Terrorists

If I asked you to give me ten words you would use to describe a police officer in the United States, I’m pretty sure that “terrorist” wouldn’t make the list.

Then again, you’re not Barack Obama speaking in front of a racist separatist group who believes in abolishing the border between Mexico and the United States and funds school programs that teach that the southwest United States belongs to Mexicans.

When communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids, when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel, when all that is happening, the system just isn’t working, and we need to change it.

That’s mighty tough talk from a guy who folded like a cheap suit after a glancing blow from the powder puff New Yorker magazine.
Cheap empty suit.

Show your appreciation to WFTV for the Biden interview

The Obama campaign is quite angry about the questions Biden was asked in this interview. They apparently take issue with being asked if Obama's policies are Marxist. Joe denied that Obama intended to "spread the wealth" even though Obama said just that to Joe.

If it quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck, it's probably a duck.

Obama is a Marxist. I've been saying it for months. And now that one anchorwoman has asked the question that many of us well-informed internet savvy people know should be asked, the Obama campaign freezes them out (no more interviews with any one on the campaign) and has gone after the anchorwoman and her husband. Just like Joe.

Remember, it's not the question. It's the answer.

Show your support for WFTV by using their contact form.

And remember, we are all Joe. Any one of us could recieved the next media anal exam just by asking a question. That is un-American.

UPDATE: Listen to Yuri Bezmenov and make your own decision as to what is going on in this country. Wrong direction? Indeed.

If America turns left and becomes a socialist state, there will be no place in the world left for freedom-loving independent thinking individualists. Choose wisely.

UPDATE: Pollster intimidation. What would an Obama-Biden administration do to those who question their authority? Too hideous to contemplate.

AZ elections information

Here in Arizona, we have alot of judges who are up for retention elections this year. Usually, information is difficult to find regarding the various judges. Now, due to the advent of the internet, there is quite a bit more information available.

A friend (Thank you msk8e!) sent me a link to a blog which J. D. Hayworth publicized on his radio program. J. D. Hayworth is a former Federal Congressman from Arizona.

If you live in Arizona, I suggest you visit AZJudgesReview blogspot and use the information presented there to help in your decision-making on judicial retention.

O'Reilly cuts up on The View

wow. I don't watch shows like that since I actually work for a living so I didn't realize how stupid Joy Behar actually is nor how biased Barbara Walters is. What a waste of the airwaves.

A practical application of the "spread the wealth" concept

A friend of mine sent this email to me today. I haven't yet determined if this was actually my friends experience or not, but I love the story so here it is ...

Today on my way to lunch I passed a guy hanging around with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference -- just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that although he had done a great job, and had worked hard to make my dining experience great, I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the other guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. He was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the the one guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed the money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.
I implore you all to embrace the concept. Make it your own. If you're in a similar situation, do Americans a service and engage in a practical application of the concept of wealth redistribution. Teach a leftist / Marxist / Socialist a lesson they won't soon forget.

Police prepare for unrest regardless of who wins/loses

I grew up about 10 miles from the epicenter of the Watts riots in the 60s. In fact, my earliest living memory is of hiding in the room furthest from the front of the house. We kept it very quiet and dark. The TV was kept very low. Some cousins and the neighbors older kids were there and kept us all quiet. Prior to nightfall, the adults would make a huge batch of popcorn and give us a treat we rarely ever had ... soda. Then, the adults would prepare for the coming darkness by hunkering down in the front of the house prepared to put out any fires which could have been lit by rioters throwing rocks wrapped with flaming fuel socked rags through the windows (Yes, a rock did indeed come through the window on at least one occasion). It was not a pleasant time to live in South Central Los Angeles. Especially if you were white. I'm blond.

Either way you look at it, law enforcement expects riots.
Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.

Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.

Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.

Democratic strategists and advocates for black voters say they understand officers wanting to keep the peace, but caution that excessive police presence could intimidate voters.

Sen. Obama (Ill.), the Democratic nominee for president, has seen his lead over rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) grow in recent weeks, prompting speculation that there could be a violent backlash if he loses unexpectedly.

Cities that have suffered unrest before, such as Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and Philadelphia, will have extra police deployed.

In Oakland, the police will deploy extra units trained in riot control, as well as extra traffic police, and even put SWAT teams on standby.

Prepare yourselves. I have an actively monitored security system but am well-armed regardless. The police can only respond to a crime after the fact. I do not intend to be a victim. But, if I am, I will go down fighting and hopefully, for the better of society, take the "perp" with me.

I am "Joe The Plumber"

Here and here but I can't get either one of them to load right now. That's ok, that just means that a huge number of Americans are currently watching and downloading them!

Update - got the vid working!

The polls are even or very close

AP Presidential Poll : All even in the homestretch

IBD / TIPP Tracking Poll Day Ten - "McCain has picked up 3 points in the West and with independents, married women and those with some college. He's also gaining momentum in the suburbs, where he's gone from dead even a week ago to a 20-point lead. "

Bias in local radio fought and defeated - at least momentarily!

Yesterday I was listening to my favorite home improvement radio program. Rosie on the house has been on the air since about the time I moved to Arizona and I've listened often. In fact, I use the Rosie on the House referral page to find any services I need at my home. My garage door opener was installed by Cookson Doors; the air conditioning at my previous home was serviced by Integrity Air; my water softener and reverse osmosis were installed by Water Treatment Technologies; my patio door was replaced by Pella. The list goes on and will continue to go on in the future.

However, yesterday the top of the hour news at 8am and at 9am (Rosie on the House is on from 8-11am every saturday) given by Dennis Lambert included some rather snarky remarks about Joe the Plumber. Each time, Mr. Lambert said something very close to "A plumbers license isn't all Joe the Plumber, whose real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, doesn't have...". That was followed up with a story about Joe's troubles nearly a decade ago when he lived in Mesa, AZ.

While the above was indeed factual correct, I took issue with the deliberate omission of Joe's middle name which is indeed "Joseph". It was a deliberate attempt to present impression that Joe the Plumber was out there running around with a fake identtity. I also found it insulting to any who choses to use either their middle name or a nickname. My own brother and several friends use their middle names. In fact, if a person prefers to go by any nickname that is their right.

I also took issue with a socalled "news" organization which is unable to determine the fact that Joe the Plumber is not required to have a Plumbers license. Joe works for a company, the owner of which has a license in the state of Ohio and the city of Toledo. The fact that this so-called "news" organization also could not remain objectivce in their top of the hour news just reinforces the obvious media bias.

On top of all that, the radio station and their news reader, Mr. Lambert, were causing listeners to tune out of the Rosie on the House radio program. The listeners to Rosie are ordinary people like Joe the Plumber, like me, and like you who want to get questions about home improvement answered. Never before in nearly 20 years of listening to Rosie and Romie have I ever heard them say the lines are all open but open they were. Thus the obvious bias and lack of objectivity of their news reader was harming an independent, small business. Just as an Obama Administration would do.

But, all is not lost. You see at about 930 am I both emailed and phoned the radio station and let them know what I thought of their "news" filled with snark and bias. And guess what happened at the top of the news at the 10am hour... no mention of Joe the Plumber at all. That was not my goal though. My goal was simply that they deliver the news without sprinkling it with opinion. So, call the media outlets that you find offensive. Email them. Fax them. Write them. It does work!

Obama's Shifting Views on Jerusalem

Obama is dangerous! He's not just a Socialist. He's a Communist/Marxist and an closet Anti-Semite. First they came for the Israeli Jews... who is next? Joe the Plumber. And YOU!

Obama Volunteer Reported Jessica Hughes To The Secret Service


Help this story go viral!

This is what we will be in for if Obama is elected....summary judgement. How far behind that is summary execution? For opinions! For opinions that the great leader does not approve of!

Summary of the eRumor: An eRumor about a woman named Jessica Hughes who got an unsolicited telephone call from an Obama volunteer. She says that she told the telemarketer that she did not support Obama because he was a "socialist who voted four times in the State Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets." She hung up on the telemarketer and the next day she had to explain her actions to two Secret Service agents who ended up at her door.

The Truth: According to an article written in the The Lufkin Daily News on October 06, 2008, Jessica Hughes got a telephone call on October 1, 2008 from a member of the Obama Volunteers of Texarkana asking for her support of the presidential candidate.
When the volunteer asked her if she was an Obama supporter, Hughes told the volunteer "No, I don't support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time." After that she hung up on the telemarketer. Hughes was referring to The Born Alive Protection Act, Illinois bill that was not supported by Obama and against which he voted 4 times..

The following day, two federal agents arrived at the Hughes home inquiring if she said, "I will never support Obama and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor."

Hughes was surprised to see the two agents at her door but says she was more upset by what she said was the volunteer deliberately twisting what she said and turning it into a death threat against the Democratic candidate. The newspaper attempted to contact Josh Taylor, the communications director for the Texas Obama Campaign but he declined comment and referred the matter to the Secret Service, which he said is conducting an investigation."

Click here for Lufkin Daily News story

As Render (that's ma honey!) put it

Slimey little bastards on DU/Kos threaten W's life for eight years and nothing happens. But if you call Obama a socialist you get to meet two Secret Service agents?

Not only do you get to meet two Secret Service agents, but you get to have your thoughts and opinions questioned. As if they were criminal! Where the hell are we? North Korea??? Well, if Obama gets elected our economic status may equal that of North Korea and we'll end up eating grass and tree bark.

Wake up America! We are not Marxists! Do not vote for the Marxist Obama! We do not believe in wealth redistribution! We believe in free speech! We believe in the rule of law!

Biden's Fantasy World


Liberals wouldn't have to be so flexible if they'd just be honest about their beliefs and positions on the issues.

The Wall Street Journal has a great article about Joe's Fantastic Debate Voyage.

In the popular media wisdom, Sarah Palin is the neophyte who knows nothing about foreign policy while Joe Biden is the savvy diplomatic pro. {Kirls - media wisdom = ultimate oxymoron!} Then what are we to make of Mr. Biden's fantastic debate voyage last week when he made factual claims that would have got Mrs. Palin mocked from New York to Los Angeles?

Start with Lebanon, where Mr. Biden asserted that "When we kicked -- along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, 'Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't know -- if you don't, Hezbollah will control it.' Now what's happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel."

The U.S. never kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, and no one else has either. Perhaps Mr. Biden meant to say Syria, except that the U.S. also didn't do that. The Lebanese ousted Syria's military in 2005. As for NATO, Messrs. Biden and Obama may have proposed sending alliance troops in, but if they did that was also a fantasy. The U.S. has had all it can handle trying to convince NATO countries to deploy to Afghanistan.

Speaking of which, Mr. Biden also averred that "Our commanding general in Afghanistan said the surge principle in Iraq will not work in Afghanistan." In trying to correct him, Mrs. Palin mispronounced the general's name -- saying "General McClellan" instead of General David McKiernan. But Mr. Biden's claim was the bigger error, because General McKiernan said that while "Afghanistan is not Iraq," he also said a "sustained commitment" to counterinsurgency would be required. That is consistent with Mr. McCain's point that the "surge principles" of Iraq could work in Afghanistan.

Then there's the Senator's astonishing claim that Mr. Obama "did not say he'd sit down with Ahmadinejad" without preconditions. Yet Mr. Biden himself criticized Mr. Obama on this point in 2007 at the National Press Club: "Would I make a blanket commitment to meet unconditionally with the leaders of each of those countries within the first year I was elected President? Absolutely, positively no."

Or how about his rewriting of Bosnia history to assert that John McCain didn't support President Clinton in the 1990s. "My recommendations on Bosnia, I admit I was the first one to recommend it. They saved tens of thousands of lives. And initially John McCain opposed it along with a lot of other people. But the end result was it worked." Mr. Biden's immodesty aside, Mr. McCain supported Mr. Clinton on Bosnia, as did Bob Dole even as he was running against him for President in 1996 -- in contrast to the way Mr. Biden and Democratic leaders have tried to undermine President Bush on Iraq.

Closer to home, the Delaware blarney stone also invited Americans to join him at "Katie's restaurant" in Wilmington to witness middle-class struggles. Just one problem: Katie's closed in the 1980s. The mistake is more than a memory lapse because it exposes how phony is Mr. Biden's attempt to pose for this campaign as Lunchbucket Joe.

We think the word "lie" is overused in politics today, having become a favorite of the blogosphere and at the New York Times. So we won't say Mr. Biden was deliberately making events up when he made these and other false statements. Perhaps he merely misspoke. In any case, Mrs. Palin may not know as much about the world as Mr. Biden does, but at least most of what she knows is true.

The Wall Street Journal may believe that the word lie is used too often in the blogosphere but I certainly do not. A lie is a lie and calling it something else is not something I'm willing to do!

Joe Biden! You are a LIAR!

Another Obama lie

Naked Emporer News Youtube channel has some amazingly informative videos. Among one I ran across today is actual audio of "Obama arguing against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) in the Illinois legislature, April 2002."

This video goes on to say...
Jill Stanek was a nurse in Illinois when she discovered babies were being aborted alive and left to die in a soiled utility room.

When a Down’s syndrome baby was aborted alive and left to die, Jill came in and cradled him for 45 minutes until he passed.

Jill’s story helped to inspire the Born Alive Infants Protection Actrr (BAIPA) to insure babies born alive were protected.

In the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama actively opposed a state version of BAIPA three times. He voted against it.

A federal version of BAIPA which included a neutrality clause in order to protect women’s right to an abortion passed in 2002.

Obama said he voted against BAIPA because the state measure didn’t have the federal language.

Obama’s own committee added the neutrality clause that matched the federal bill. Then he voted against it again.
The video also includes footage from Saddleback where Obama was asked "When does life begin?". His answer, "Answering that question with specificity is, ah, you know, is, ah, above my paygrade."

That is the only honest thing I've ever heard Obama utter. It is above his paygrade. So, why then does he presume to make the decision rather than erring on the side of life?

Watch the other videos at Naked Emporer News too.

The biggest scam in American history: Obama

Washington Prowler
Obama’s Fishy $200 Million
By The Prowler
Published 10/2/2008 12:08:46 AM

An auditor for the Federal Election Commission is attempting to have his bosses seek a formal investigation into the collection by the Obama for President campaign of more than $200 million in potentially illegal political donations, including millions of dollars of illegal, foreign donations, and has sought a request for assistance from the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation. But the analyst's requests have largely been ignored. "I can't get anyone to move. I believe we are looking at a hijacking of our political system that makes the Clinton and Gore fundraising scandals pale in comparison. And no one here wants to touch it."

One reasons cited by his superiors, says the analyst, is that involvement by the Justice Department or FBI would be indicative of a criminal investigation, something the FEC would prefer not take place a month before the presidential election. Such actions, though, have been used to scuttle Republican campaigns in the past, the most famous being the Weinberger case in the days leading up to the 1992 re-election bid of President George H.W. Bush.

The analyst, who declines to be identified for fear of retribution, says that on four different occasions in the past three months, he sought to open formal investigations into the Obama campaign's fundraising techniques, but those investigations have been discouraged. "Without formal approval, I can't get the resources I need, manpower, that kind of thing. This is a huge undertaking." And the analyst says that he believes that campaign finance violations have occurred.

The Obama campaign has already had to deal with several FEC complaints about fraudulent donors and illegal foreign contributions, and the FEC says it has no record that those complaints have been resolved or closed. As well, the Obama campaign has been cagey at times about the means by which it has made its historic fundraising hauls, which now total almost $500 million for the election cycle. The Hillary Clinton campaign raised questions about the huge amount of e-retail sales the Obama campaign was making for such things as t-shirts and other campaign paraphernalia, and how such sales were being tracked and used for fundraising purposes. While the profits of those items counted against the $2,300 personal donation limit, there have always been lingering questions about the e-retail system.

"The question has always been, if you buy a $25 t-shirt and you go back to that purchaser eight or nine times with email appeals for $200 or $500 donations, and you have people donating like that all the time, at what point does the campaign bother to check if the FEC limit has been exceeded?" says a former Clinton campaign fundraiser. "There are enough of us from the 1992 and 1996 and 2000 races around to know that many of these kinds of violations never get caught until after the election has been won or lost. In this case, there is no way the Obama campaign will be held accountable before Election Day, unless someone raises holy hell.

"The FEC analyst says that Obama's filings indicate he has received large, bundled sums of donations from overseas, sometimes exceeding a quarter millions dollars. "It's suspicious, but it's the small donations made by credit card that need to be examined. We've raised red flags on many of these and the Obama campaign just ignores us. After this election, after we've sifted through everything -- if we're allowed to sift through everything -- I am confident that we are looking at perhaps the largest fine every leveled against a national campaign entity."

Just as frustrating as the lack of desire on the part of his bosses to act, says the analyst, is that major media outlets have ignored the story he has been attempting to tell. Thus far, Newsmax is one of the few publications to cover the Obama campaign finance scam story.

Call me a skeptic (it would be accurate!)

So, if the so-called "Financial Crisis" really was so serious that a "Rescue Bill" was absolutely necessary, then why are Citi and Wells Fargo fighting over the so-called "toxic" Wachovia????

Mac the Sheriff and Sarah the Deputy

Out of the West Comes an Alaska Cowgirl

It's Frontier Woman vs. Metrosexual Chic! Hold your breath -- who is going to win this clash of the archetypes? This is not just a matter of style -- Frontier Woman triggers a host of very real American associations -- self-reliance, strong family bonds, courage in the face of danger, moral strength, independent thinking.

On the other side, Metro Chic has its own hold on our Effete Elites. It all comes down to the Western Enlightenment versus Metro Socialism.

Sarah Palin is a mythic figure out of the American imagination. That (is) why she scares the Effetes and Corruptocrats. She's John Wayne and Annie Oakley all rolled into one. Governor Palin is America's Everywoman, who faced and defeated the Corruptocrats in Alaska. Now she is heading up Main Street along with maverick John McCain, the Arizona sheriff, as the comfortable townsfolk are hiding scared under their beds.

And that big cattle baron on the hill? He's sneakily trying to undermine and destroy the Girl Deputy. He controls the newspapers and spreads vicious rumors, just his usual way of doing business. That's the meaning of the Credit "Crisis" and the packed hog sausage Congress just made, supposedly to save us from the Fraud Crisis. We have just seen the cover ripped off an open Washington DC secret --- the blatant ongoing exploitation by Democrats of Freddie and Fannie Home Fraud, which you and I will be paying for, for years to come.

Nothing could better symbolize the clash between our values and theirs. There's Franklin Raines, the 90 million dollar slickster, who told Congress a few years ago that Fannie and Freddie just made free money. Home loans carried no risk! Just open the spigot and it's beer and hog bellies for everybody.

Would you buy a used buggy whip from these guys? From Barack Obama's "home mortgage advisor" Jim Johnson? From Barney Frank's boyfriend at Fannie?

But it's not just the F & F Fraud; it's the phony oil crisis, the global warming hyper-scam, the constant purchase of cheap Leftie votes from the poor, unfortunate and easily suckered, the vicious Eternal Establishment at CIA and Treasury, plus the foreign Rogues Gallery in North Korea, Iran and Russia, and lastly our cowardly "allies" in Europe, all topped off with an endless flow of media lies...

You name it, it all comes down to another mythic metaphor --- the stinking Augean Stables of Washington, DC. In Greek myth it took Hercules to divert a river to wash out the Stables. We could use a few fresh Alaska snowstorms to help out here. The
Potomac River is way too polluted.

But the Corruptocrats can see Mac the Sheriff and Sarah the Deputy walking up Main Street, and they've been taking potshots over and over again. They've been at it for a long time, enough to make old Sheriff Bush nearly helpless after eight years of daily abuse.

Is help finally on the way?

You'll see the bullets flying hot and heavy in the last four weeks before November 4. Get ready to duck and weave, and answer them back if you can get a clear shot.

Vote to Save the West on November 4.

That's "West" as in "Western Civilization."

It's all going to come down to you.

Which side are you on?

James Lewis blogs occasionally at

Well, which side are you on? You have a clear choice before you. Marxists and the style of government proven as a failure the world over? Or capitalists with Sarah poised to save the Conservative movement in 4 or 8 years?

The seven dwarfs always left to go work in the mine early each morning. As always, Snow White stayed home doing her domestic chores.

As lunchtime approached, she would prepare their lunch and carry it to the mine.

One day as she arrived at the mine with the lunch, she saw that there had been a terrible cave-in.

Tearfully, and fearing the worst, Snow White began calling out, hoping against hope that the dwarfs had somehow survived.

'Hello!...Hello!' she shouted.
'Can anyone hear me? Hello!'

For a long while, there was no answer. Losing hope, Snow White again shouted,
'Hello! Is anyone down there?'

Just as she was about to give up all hope,
she heard a faint voice from deep
within the mine, singing . . ...

'Vote for Barack Obama! - Vote for Barack Obama!'

Snow White fell to her knees, crossed herself
and prayed, 'Oh, thank you, God!
At least Dopey is still alive...

Sarah Palin - Smart, Successful, Beautiful, Strong, and BRAVE!

I heard Hugh Hewitt read this on the air today...

But [Palin's dad] Chuck has seen his daughter handle herself in other perilous situations and come out all right. A few years ago, he watched her pilot husband Todd Palin's commercial fishing boat in a storm. Todd was working at his oil-field job on the North Slope, and Palin and her father had been fishing on Bristol Bay. "It was the toughest work I've ever done, and it wasn't only hard, it was dangerous," Chuck says. At the end of the run, they had to get the boat on a trailer amid crashing surf. As cold, metallic-sheened waves tossed the trawler around, Chuck quailed.

"I'm not doing that," he said.

"Get out of the way," Palin said. "I'll do it."

She did.

Now, I know how hard that must have been. It's a nontrivial event getting a boat loaded up on a trailer in calm lake waters let alone a raging storm on the ocean!

That and the story about a grizzly in the car are in Sally Jenkins Washington Post article, Palin's Strengths Rooted in Alaska. Read it all!

Sarah Palin was clearly raised by parents who loved her enough to teach her to take care of herself in the most hazardous situations. God Bless the Heath family!

McCain-Palin leads

Nebraska - John McCain leads Barack Obama by 19 points -- 56% to 37%

Kentucky - John McCain leading Barack Obama 52% to 42%.

Tennessee - John McCain holds a19-point lead over Barack Obama in Tennessee,

Texas - McCain ahead 52% to 43%. "The latest numbers mark the fourth straight month the Republican has held a nine-point lead in the Lone Star State. "

Montana - McCain leading by eight, 52% to 44%.

In spite of my obvious preference as to who wins this election, I find the following extremely troubling...
Obama leads 63% to 32% among voters who name the economy as the top voting issue. McCain lead 74% to 24% among those who say that national security is the highest priority. Fifty percent (50%) of voters say the economy is most important while just 19% see national security that way.
So, only 19% of the (polled) population sees national security as more important than the economy?? What is wrong with these people?? Don't they understand that you can have all the prosperity in the world but without security, it is worth precisely nothing! Without security, all that prosperity hangs by a thread!

I'd rather be free and destitute than prosperous and constrained.

Reactions to Hugh Hewitt's interview of Sarah Palin yesterday

Hugh Hewitt has posted some reactions to his yesterday of Sarah Palin....

The Los Angeles Times' Andrew Malcom:

You can bet Biden's aides are poring over the Hewitt interview too, looking for rehearsed response lines for Biden to drop in with apparent spontaneity.

"Governor," Biden might say, "I'm from Scranton, Pa. I know Joe Six-Pack. And, governor, you're no Joe Six-Pack."

Then Palin could pause for the derisive laughter to subside and calmly observe: "Senator, I know a lot of Joe Six-Packs. And not one of them has been living off the United States Senate like you for 36 years."
