Who Is This Guy?

And … What Is an “Office of the President-Elect?”

Office of the President-Elect, originally uploaded by Jules°.

President-Elect Barack Obama is not only history’s first black President-Elect, he is also the first President-Elect to create his own office, the Office of the President-Elect.

What is “The Office of the President-Elect?” I cannot find any mention of it in the United States Constitution, so I went to the legislation regarding the President-Elect.

I read the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 (3 USC 102 note) and it describes the “Office of the President” and the transition of power, but NOWHERE did I find any mention of an “Office of the President-Elect.” If anyone can find with what authority the President-Elect was able to create the “Office of the President-Elect,” fully adorned with American flags which Candidate Obama eschewed during the election, please let us know about it. The Presidential Transition Act cited above mentions (one time) only “transition teams” of the President and Vice President Elects. Sorry, no such office as “Office of the President Elect.”

Here is George Bush’s Executive Order, dated October 2008, which also mentions NOTHING (as in ZILCH) about an “Office of the President Elect:”

So what’s with this Obama guy? He cannot wait two months until he is properly elected by his electors, and swears to the oath as spelled out in Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution? So why is he acting as though he is already President and treating the current Constitutional President, George Bush, as chopped liver?

Who is this guy? Why would he display the Presidential Seal as his own before he is even legally President. Or is this seal the Great Seal of the President-Elect, which no one has ever heard of before? Is this arrogant behaviour typical of an out of control narcissist? This guy is going to wear out his welcome before he is even sworn into office. Oh, I forgot. He’s the Messiah and things are different for HIM. He probably won’t even have to swear an oath.

Bells and Whistles, But No Authority

Obama – Lincoln ‘Decreed’ Thanksgiving

November 29, 2008

First off, what in God’s name is the “Office of the President Elect” and why is whatever it is compelled to issue weekly pronouncements to the huddled masses yearning to be free? According to the United States Constitution, we still have an elected, duly sworn President until noon, on January 20th, 2009. Barack Obama has neither been legally elected president by the “electors,” nor has he sworn to the oath mandated in Article II, Section 1 of the United States Constitution. So why is he acting as though he is already President? It is most unseemly to say the least. Inauguration Day is not November 4th! It is January 20th as set by the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution, if that still be the law of the land.

Secondly, Mr. President Elect Who Cannot Wait His Time, President Abraham Lincoln did much mischief to this country, but he NEVER made a “First Thanksgiving Decree.” What kind of Day of Thanksgiving would it be if it had been decreed? Where does this word “decree” come from in a supposed government of the people? What President Lincoln did say when he made his Thanksgiving “Proclamation” was to mention blessings “gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American people.”

Thirdly, Mr. President Elect Obama, it was George Washington who “proclaimed” the first Thanksgiving, during his first year as President. He set aside Thursday, November 26 as “A Day of Publick Thanksgiving and Prayer.” Signed by Washington on October 3, 1789, the “Proclamation” was entitled “General Thanksgiving,” and appointed the day “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.”

Now, contrast those words of both Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln as they “proclaimed” Thanksgiving Day, to those “decreed” by Barack Obama, before he has even been inaugurated President. Obama has decreed that Americans are to give thanks on this Thanksgiving Week-end for Him: So this weekend — with one heart, and one voice, the American people can give thanks that a new and brighter day is yet to come.”

The CHANGE we have been awaiting is a CHANGE to a brand new country – Obamerika, The Obama Nation, ruled by a Benevolent Narcissist, which is the “brighter day to come,” under Obama rule.

All Democrat – All the Time

November 25, 2008

I’d rather address somebody that doesn’t know what they are talking about, than somebody to just reiterate what people believe.”  ~~Congressman Jim Moran to his Virginia Constituents

Dumb Constituents of Representative Jim Moran

This is what you get with one party rule. You get a United States congressman, such as James “Jim” Moran of Virginia, who yells “absolutely not” at his own constitutes when they ask if the Democrats in Congress deserve “any” of the blame for the nation’s economic woes. You get a congressman who stays in office until death does he depart, or until he decides to bequeath his office to his younger brother. You get a congressman, who, when reminded that the Democrats have had total control of the Congress, says the economy is 100% the fault of the Republicans. You get a representative to congress, Jim Moran of Virginia, who refuses to take a question from his constituent who asked about Democrat control of Congress, shouting instead “I will address this. But I’d rather address somebody that doesn’t know what they are talking about, than somebody to just reiterate what people believe.”

Okay people, it’s hard to believe, but this man was just reelected to office overwhelmingly. That is why Representative Jim Moran is so arrogant. Virginians, this is what you just elected to represent and serve you in the United States Congress. In other words, Virginians, you get the government you deserve, so stop complaining, and follow the Democrat Party’s admonition and elect Moran’s brother as Governor to follow in the steps of Thomas Jefferson.

Greta Van Susteren

November 25, 2008

Today, on Facebook, I am breathing a sign of relief that I am already friends with Greta Van Susteren, as she has now reached the 5000 limit and can no longer add any more friends. She is my most interesting friend on Facebook, with apologies to all my other friends.

Last night I waited for Greta’s “On the Record” show to watch her investigative report on the latest news of missing Alabama teen, Natalee Holloway, and her erstwhile Aruba hunk companion, Joran Van der Sloot. Well, as the show comes on at 10 pm here, I saw only the first part and then fell asleep. That is why I am happy I am a friend of Greta’s at Facebook, and also a “fan” of Fox News at Facebook too. I went to Fox News at Facebook and was able to very easily watch the show’s video and others that I had missed.

So the latest story coming from “hunk” Joran Van der Sloot, is that he sold the young teen, Natalee Holloway, into white slavery for $10,000. What a great guy! How can girls and women resist him? This is only the third or fourth story explaining the disappearance of the young girl that he had met at an Aruban bar, Carlos and Charlies, and with his irresistible charm carried away from her American schoolmates one evening. It seems like the first story he told was that he last saw her when he dropped her off at her hotel, where she was immediately accosted by some “black guys” working there. Those “black guys” were immediately arrested on Joran’s word, but when the authorities found no evidence against them, they were released. The second story he told was that he abandoned Natalee in a drunken state, on the beach, as he had to be home to get ready for school the next day. Then there was the third story told by Joran Van der Sloot to a close friend, that while he was with the young girl, she suddenly went into convulsions and just died. So … Joran did the honorable “Aruban Guy” thing, and had a friend with a boat carry her body out to sea and dump her overboard. WHAT A GUY! Now comes this latest story about selling her to an Aruban man who wanted to buy a “blond girl” to take to Venezuela, even though Joran’s father advised Joran that “selling girls was a serious crime.”Joran’s father is a member of Aruba’s legal system, so apparently there are some laws in Aruba about some things.

Now, before you ask what happened to the $10,000 that great guy Joran received for selling a fellow human, he now claims that ALL of these stories he told about the missing Natalee are lies that he made up. Seems that when you have spent too much time in Holland indulging in “magic mushrooms,” marijuana, and other legal Dutch delicacies, you end up with an addled brain like has happened to the hunk, Van der Sloot.

What do the legal authorities on the island of Aruba think of all of this? They are NOT interested at all. Perhaps, that’s another legacy of those Dutch “magic mushrooms.” Think of that if you are planning a “fun” trip to Aruba. Obviously, there is NO legal protection available to you if you are an American, and a crime is committed against you while you are visiting Aruba.

Flag of the Obama Nation

November 23, 2008

Obama Nation Flag

Down with the Old Glory – Up with the New Glory!

The French are so delighted with our President-elect that they have designed a new flag for our new Obama Nation. While there are still the thirteen red and white stripes representing the thirteen original colonies (states), there are now only seventeen stars representing the actual states in the Union.

What has happened to the other 33 states? Or are they just behind the Messiah’s head and have given up their autonomy in obeisance to The One? Or, are there really 40 missing states, as Obama had said that there were 57 states in the union, not 50. And why is Obama’s face three-fourths red and only one-fourth blue? Does it mean he has destroyed all the red states?

Victory in Iraq Day

November 22, 2008

We won. The Iraq War is over. We hereby declare 22 November 2008 to be “Victory in Iraq Day,” or “VI Day.”

By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to establish a new functioning democratic government, and suppressed any lingering insurgencies. The war has come to an end. And we won.

What more indication do you need? An announcement from the outgoing Bush administration? It’s not gonna happen. An announcement from the incoming Obama administration? That’s really not gonna happen. A declaration of victory by the media? Please. Don’t make me laugh. A concession of surrender by what few remaining insurgents remain in hiding? Forget about it.

The moment has come to acknowledge the obvious. To overtly declare a fact that has already been true for quite some time now. Let us repeat: THE WAR IS OVER – WE WON!

“Ingratitude is monstrous, and for the multitude to be ingrateful were to make a monster of the multitude.” ~~William Shakespeare (1564–1616), 3rd Citizen, in Coriolanus, act 2, sc. 3, l. 9-11. He was arguing that the people should be grateful to Caius Marcius for defeating the Volsces.

Obama’s Views on Race Relations

November 22, 2008

Obama’s Racism From His Own Writings:

“The emotions between the races could never be pure; … the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien and apart.” ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” page 124.)

What did Obama write about his self-described cousins, the Diks of Sudan, and racism?

I was reminded of a conversation I’d had a few years earlier with a friend of my mother’s, an Englishman who had worked for an international aid organization throughout Africa and Asia. He had told me that of all the different peoples he had met in his travels, the Dik of Sudan were the strangest.

‘Usually, after a month or two, you make contact,‘ he had said. ‘Even where you don’t speak the language, there’s a smile or a joke, you know — some semblance of recongnition. But at the end of a year with the Dik, they remained utterly alien to me. They laughed at the things that drove me to despair. What I thought was funny seemed to leave them stone cold.

I had spared him the information that the Dik were Nilotes, distant cousins of mine. I had tried to imagine this pale Englishman in a parched desert somewhere, his back turned away from a circle of naked tribesmen, his eyes searching an empty sky, bitter in his solitude. And the same thought had occurred to me then that I carried with me now as I left the movie theater with my mother and sister: The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien and apart.” ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” page 124.

What did Barack Obama say, in his own words, about segregation on college campuses?

To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.

After all, there were thousands of so-called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerated. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names. ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” pages 100, 101.

What did Barack Obama write about Blacks acting white? He ridiculed them and their redneck girlfriends.

Tim was not a conscious brother. Tim wore argyle sweaters and pressed jeans and talked like Beaver Cleaver. …His white girlfriend was probably waiting for him up in his room, listening to country music. ~~Barack Obama, ibidem, pages 101, 102.

What did Barack Obama think about actual bourgeois white people? “We’d Laugh at the Faces.” When Obama was living in New York City, he entertained himself laughing at the upper-class “white people from the better neighborhoods” because they were actually following the rules of the community in which they lived. Obama wrote it in his own words in “Dreams From My FatherBarack Obama Book,” pages 3, 4.

“I’d usually stop to talk to the boys who hung out on the stoop all summer long about the Knicks or the gunshots they’d heard the night before. When the weather was good, my roommate and I might sit out on the fire escape to smoke cigarettes and study the dusk washing blue over the city, or watch white people from the better neighborhoods nearby walk their dogs down our block to let the animals shit on our curbs — ‘Scoop the poop, you bastards!’ my roommate would shout with impressive rage and we’d laugh at the faces of both master and beast, grim and unapologetic as they hunkered down to do the deed. I enjoyed such moments –” ~~Barack Obama in “Dreams From My Father,” pages 3, 4.)
