Written by a female Obama supporter who voted for him

Something to think about.  He pulled the biggest Hoax in U.S. history


  I am merely passing this on as received. 
 Written by a female Obama supporter who voted for him.
 Legitimate Question… This election has me very worried. I voted for Obama. McCain was a Washington insider and we don’t need any more of them. I have changed my mind three  times, since then.I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to  another. This drives my husband crazybut, I feel if you view CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with.I started  thinking “where does all the money come from for President Obama”? I have fourdaughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was  tight. We(including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student  loans. I started looking intoObama’s history for my own peace of  mind. Around 1979 Obama started college at  Occidental in California . He is very open about histwo years at  Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he  had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. “Barry” (that  was the name heused all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad  Hasan Chandoo andWahid Hamid, both from Pakistan . During the summer of  1981, after his second year incollege, he made a “round the world”  trip. Stopping to see his mother in  Indonesia , next Hyderabad in  India , three weeks in Karachi , Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s  family. My  question – Where did he get the money for this trip? Nether I, nor any one  of my childrenwould have had money for a trip like this when they were in  college. When he came back hestarted school at Columbia University in New York . It is at this time he wants everyone to call himBarack – not  Barry. Do  you know what the tuition is at Columbia ? It’s not cheap to say theleast.
My  girls asked me; where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe it’s none of my business.
After Columbia , he went to Chicago to  work as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year.Why Chicago? Why not New York?  He was already living in New York . By “chance” he met Antoin “Tony”  Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria , and a real estate developer in Chicago . Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery several times in the past and in  2011. Rezko, was named “Entrepreneur of the Decade” by the  Arab-American Business and ProfessionalAssociation.” About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School . Do you have any idea what tuition is for  Harvard LawSchool ?  Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans? His family has no money,that’s for  sure. After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down.But, he did take a  job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what I discovered? They represented “Rezar” which is Rezko’s firm.
Rezko was one of Obama’s first major  financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago.In 2003, Rezko  threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David  Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with “seed money” for  his U.S.Senate race.
In  2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwood District of Chicago for  $1.65 million(less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans, where did he get the money for thisproperty? On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita,  purchased the adjoining empty lot for fullprice. The London Times reported  that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko$3.5 million three  weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhm iAuchi many times with Rezko.
Now, we have Obama running for  President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss.She is now Obama’s  chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talkingto her  first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran ! Am I going  nuts or isthere a pattern here?
On  May 10, 2008, The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was  “sacked”after the press found out he was having regular contacts with “Hamas” which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran.This past week,  buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that, during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and hewill “Take care of things.” What does that mean?
Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan?They are in charge of all  those “small” Internet campaign contribution for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country?  Or could it be from the Middle East?
And the final bit of news…. On September 7, 2009, The Washington Times posted a verbalslip that was made on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. Obama on talking abouthis  religion said, “My Muslim faith”.  When questioned, he “…made a mistake”. Some mistakehuh?
All of the above information I got online. If you would like to check it – Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama;  Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times – Obama visited Pakistan  in 1981;The Washington Times -September 7, 2008; The Times May 10,  2008.
Now the BIG question – If I found out  all this information on my own, Why haven’t all of our”intelligent” members  of the press been reporting this? Is this a Kettle of Fish? As Arsenio Hall would say — Does something stink or is it my imagination?” These are legitimate questions for our president.

Whoppi Goldberg explodes at Donald Trump about Obama’s birth certificate on the View [Updated with Video]

Video added ….

Whoopi Goldberg got into a furious argument with Donald Trump about President Obama’s birth certificate on Wednesday’s “The View.”

Trump, who has been talking about running for president, has been drawing attention for his comments about Obama’s citizenship. He repeated some of them on “The View.”

“Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate?” Trump said. “Why should he have to?” Whoopi cut in.

“Because I have to and everybody else has to, Whoopi,” Trump said. He continued that he believed Obama has a birth certificate, but that he should show it to clear the “pall” hanging over him. Then, he said that it was odd that “nobody from [Obama’s] early years remembers him,” and that there was “something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.” This last comment seemed to be the final straw for Whoopi—and for Barbara Walters.

“That’s a terrible thing to say,” she said, as Whoopi exclaimed, “oh my God…that’s the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages.” She continued, “it’s not ’cause he’s black, is it?” Trump said it had “nothing to do with that.”

“Because I’ve never heard any white President asked to be shown the birth certificate,” Whoopi said heatedly, pounding her fist into her hand. “When you become the President of the United States of America, you know that he’s American. I’m sorry. That’s B.S.”

Barack Obama is not immune to the charms of a nice bottom

O La La

Original Post

At the G8 summit in Italy, he was snapped apparently checking out the perfect curves of a young lady.

And French President Nicolas Sarkozy (54) was looking on in amusement… Oh là là, Monsieur le Président!

So who was the lady in red who caught the eye of Obama – or should that be O-BUM-a?

Her name is Mayora Tavares, she is 16 and she comes from Brazil.

All India Radio Address by Martin Luther King(1959)

Listen

In February-March 1959, King and his wife Coretta Scott King travelled throughout India. King confessed to an intellectual debt to Gandhi. 

During that time, he delivered a message to India and Indians on All India Radio (AIR). That message was lost in AIR’s voluminous but chaotic archives. After much searching, AIR finally retrieved what is actually a treasure. And last weekend, on Martin Luther King Day in the US, when the nation was preparing to install Barack Obama as the 44th US president, National Public Radio played that long lost message by King to Indians and the world.

Palin going off-script, McCain aides gripe

aides to Sen. John McCain say they weren’t happy that running mate Sarah Palin went off script Sunday and turned attention back to the controversy over her wardrobe.

A Palin associate, however, said the candidate is simply trying to “bust free” of what she believes was a damaging and mismanaged roll-out.

`Joe the Plumber,’ Obama Tax-Plan Critic, Owes Taxes

`Joe the plumber,” the Toledo, Ohio, man whose complaints about Barack Obama’s tax plan were highlighted by John McCain in the final presidential debate, owes the state of Ohio almost $1,200 in back income taxes.

According to records on file with the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, the state filed a tax lien against Samuel J. Wurzelbacher for $1,182.98 on Jan. 26, 2007, that is still active.

Wurzelbacher was thrust into the national spotlight this week when he told Obama he worried that the Illinois senator’s proposals to roll back Bush administration tax breaks for Americans earning more than $250,000 would prevent him from buying a plumbing business that would earn between $250,000 and $280,000 a year.

McCain, an Arizona Republican senator, pointed to the exchange during the debate last night when he turned to the camera and said, “I will not stand for a tax increase on small-business income.” Directly criticizing Obama, he added, “what you want to do to `Joe the plumber’ and millions more like him is have their taxes increased and not be able to realize the American dream of owning their own business.”

Today, at a rally in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, McCain said “the real winner last night was `Joe the plumber.”’

On Oct. 12, as Obama was campaigning door-to-door in suburban Toledo, Wurzelbacher confronted the Democratic presidential nominee about his tax plan.

`American Dream’

“Do you believe in the American dream?” Wurzelbacher asked before asking about the tax increase. “I’m being taxed more and more for fulfilling the American dream.”

Wurzelbacher’s home telephone number is unlisted, and efforts to reach him by calling his neighbors and family were unsuccessful. Attempts to reach Wurzelbacher at the plumbing company where he works were also unsuccessful. The address on the lien and other records for him matched the address published by the Toledo Blade, which also noted the lien.

The state of Ohio places a lien on real property after several steps to try to collect a tax debt, according to John Kohlstrand, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Taxation who said he couldn’t discuss any specific case.

Delinquency Notice

If a delinquency notice goes unheeded, the Department of Taxation issues a billing notice, Kohlstrand said. If that is ignored, a more formal assessment notice is sent. Failing to appeal an assessment or losing an appeal puts the debt into the hands of the state attorney general for collection. The attorney general typically sends a collection notice and simultaneously files a lien.

“The taxpayers may not necessarily know about the lien,” Kohlstrand said, although they would receive other notices.

In Wurzelbacher’s case, the lien indicated that the notice was sent to a previous address in Toledo.

Ray Ann Estep, section chief for revenue-recovery services for the Ohio attorney general, said Wurzelbacher’s lien was filed six months after the Department of Taxation certified the debt for collection.

“Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t resolve their debts as quickly as we would like them to,” she said.

Obama’s Plan

In addition to tax credits and a proposal that would allow Wurzelbacher to avoid paying capital-gains taxes if he ever sold the business he wants to acquire for a profit, Obama has proposed allowing the top two tax rates of 33 percent and 35 percent to revert to what they were during the Clinton administration, or 36 percent and 39.6 percent, respectively.

In 2007, the 33 percent bracket kicked in for taxable income exceeding $195,851.

Under Obama’s proposal, Wurzelbacher would face about $900 more in taxes if he netted $280,000 of income from his new business and had to pay an extra 3 percentage points on the amount over $195,851, said Gerald Prante, a senior economist at the Tax Foundation, a Washington research group that is examining both candidates’ plans.

“His average tax burden, the final bill he pays to the IRS isn’t going to go up much if he’s just making $280,000 a year,” Prante said. He would face higher marginal tax costs to expand the business beyond that, he said.

Not Taxable Income

It’s far more likely that the $280,000 Wurzelbacher told Obama he’d earn would be in the form of gross receipts and not taxable income, said Steven Bankler, a certified public accountant in San Antonio, who counts plumbers and other trade professionals as his clients.

By the time Wurzelbacher took proper business deductions, Bankler said, he’d be left with between $150,000 and $200,000 in taxable income and wouldn’t be affected by Obama’s proposed increase in the top rates.

Wurzelbacher might eventually have to pay more employment taxes under Obama’s plan to impose a rate of between 2 percent and 4 percent on wages over $250,000, Bankler said, but Obama has said that change wouldn’t take effect for a decade
