Of Course We Negotiate With Terrorists

By Kellene Bishop

What’s the saying? “We do not negotiate with terrorists?”  If only that were true of the lawmakers in Texas and everywhere else in the U.S. for that matter, because based on what I’m seeing nationwide, not only do we negotiate with terrorists, but we throw our own women and children at them as a sacrifice to appease their demonic appetites. Harsh words, perhaps, yes. But no harsher than the inexcusable cowardice which is being demonstrated by State Governments all over this nation in response to the DHS and TSA policies of stripping the freedoms from this nation’s air travelers.

I find this incredibly disturbing. Apparently the Federal Government has threatened Texas that if they do not allow the unlawful sexually invasive pat downs to continue in their state, the Feds will make Texas a “no fly zone.”

Texas has admirably been working on passing legislation which would make it illegal for the TSA trademarked pat downs to take place. Unfortunately, this threat seems to have been all that was needed to get the sponsoring State Senator to pull the proposed legislation thus negating any vote on it.

You know, more so than this heinous mob group called The Department of Homeland Security, I find cowards to be even more reprehensible.  I simply cannot abide them for any purpose nor to any length.  There was a time that such cowardice behavior constituted death to the coward, based on the belief that if one would not fight for freedom he was no longer eligible to enjoy its fruits.

Texas, and every other state in this nation, do the right thing and don’t back down from repealing this horrific practice from our airports! It has NEVER resulted in any good for any citizen of this nation. It blackens the heart and sensibilities of those who perform the searches and it dehumanizes those who are forced to endure such a blatant threat of false imprisonment, and many other constitutional violations and assaults.

Where are our brave men and women within the borders of this nation who will fight for our freedoms? Have they all been deployed to foreign nations to play a part in the amateur and deceptive production of “World Peace”?

This Is Where I Stand

Just to be perfectly clear, lest any government or IRS officials mistake my intents, I will  NEVER, EVER pay for health insurance forcibly.  This act is simply another covert attempt at another tax and one HUGE step towards communism conjured by evil, spineless, and cowardly individuals.

How dare any  man call themselves an American and yet still believe they have a  a right to take money out of someone else’s pocket to pay for their own health care. Shame on you Americans who are tolerating this act of treason!  Mark my words, blood will be spilt over this issue by the time it is enforced. True Americans will not tolerate this act of a tyrannical government without fighting back.

Tax me out the wazoo, put me in jail, I won’t do it–plain and simple.

The First Lady Requires $1.7 Million in Servants

First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants
By Dr. Paul L. Williams  Monday, August 17, 2009

“In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said. “See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,”— Michelle Obama.

We were wrong.
Michelle Obama, as we reported on July 7, is not served by twenty-two attendants who stand by to cater to her every whim.

She is served by twenty-six attendants, including a hair dresser and make-up artist.
The annual cost to taxpayers for such unprecedented attention is approximately $1,750,000 without taking into account the expense of the lavish benefit packages afforded to every attendant.

Little did American voters realize the call for “change” would result in the establishment of an Obama oligarchy.
The discovery of the additional attendants was made by D’Angelo Gore of factcheck.org and by calls to Katie McCormick Lelyyeld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary.

Mr. Gore launched his investigation of the First Lady’s staff in the wake of an article that appeared on thelastcrusade.org and Canada Free Press on July 7.

The article, which became a chain letter viewed by millions of Americans, reported that Michelle Obama requires more than twenty attendants – – more than any First Lady in U.S. History. It provided the following list of White House staff members assigned to the First Lady:

  1. $172,2000 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
  2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
  3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)
  4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
  5. $102,000 – Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  6. $90,000 – Medina, David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  7. $84,000 – Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
  8. $75,000 – Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
  9. $70,000 – Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)
  10. $65,000 – Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
  11. $65,000 – Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)
  12. $62,000 – Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
  13. $60,000 – Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)
  14. $60,000 – Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
  15. $52,500 – Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)
  16. $50,000 – Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)
  17. $45,000 – Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)
  18. $45,000 – Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)
  19. $40,000 – Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
  20. $36,000 – Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)
  21. $36,000 – Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)
  22. $36,000 – Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

Readers throughout the country expressed outrage that Mrs. Obama would hire an unprecedented number of staffers in the midst of the Great Recession.

The allegations within the July 7 article seemed so outrageous that many readers questioned their accuracy.
Does Mrs. Obama have an unprecedented number of staffers in a time when 34 million Americans – – a record number – – rely on food stamps to feed their families?

The answer, as D’Angelo Gore of factcheck.org discovered, is yes.
When questioned by Mr. Gore, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, said that the First Lady does retain a staff of more than twenty who remain at her beck and call. But the actual number is 24, not 22, as the article reported.

Mrs. Lelyyeld failed to provide the names of the two additional attendants to Mrs. Obama. But she did confirm that six staffers who do not have “first lady” in their title but are a part of the First Lady’s office staff, such as Desiree Rogers, who bears the title “Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary,” and Natalie Bookey, who is listed as a “staff assistant.”

What’s more, even a list of 24 would be incomplete since it would fail to include the names of makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom travel aboard Air Force One and provide Mrs. Obama with daily attention.

This adds up to a whopping $1,600,700.00 and the amount doesn’t include the elite benefit packages granted to the White House staff and their significant others (include same-sex partners). Nor does the figure take into account the salaries for the two additional full-time staff members mentioned by Mrs. Obama’s Press Secretary nor the full time hair-dresser and makeup artist assigned to her. A guesstimate of the total salaries for Mrs. Obama’s attendants is $1,750,00.00 plus the additional benefits.

For comparison, let’s remember that poor Bess Truman and Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salaries for 5 of their personal secretaries from their own pocketbooks. Stephen Plotkin, reference archivist for the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, says that Jacqueline Kennedy’s office was “headed” by one person who supervised a staff of approximately nine full and part time workers (including the White House cooks and chambermaids).

Kim Coryat, an archives technician at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, says that it is difficult to nail down a precise count of staff because “White House staffing for all offices ebbs and flows with time.” But she points out that a White House telephone directory indicates that Hillary Clinton had a staff of thirteen in 1993 – – this is telling since Mrs. Clinton intended to serve as a co-executive in the Oval Office by spearheading a health care reform program.

Laura Bush was far from a fiscal conservative during her time in the White House and, like her husband, served to bloat the White House budget. A list of Mrs. Bush’s staff attendants is as follows:

  1. McBride, Anita B. assistant to the president and chief of staff to the first lady $168,000.00
  2. Harder, Cherie S. Special assistant to the president for domestic policy and director of project of the first lady $108,000.00
  3. Niemiec, Sally M. Press secretary to the First Lady $90,000.00
  4. Miller, Sonja M. Deputy chief of staff to the first lady $84,700.00
  5. Ballard, Deanna M. Director of scheduling for the First Lady $75,000.00
  6. Underwood, Carrie P. Deputy director of policy and projects for the First Lady $65,000.00
  7. Wallace, Charity N. Director of advance for the First Lady $65,000.00
  8. Marshall, Misty C. Director of correspondence for the first lady $59,700.00
  9. Etter, Marisa L. Deputy director of scheduling for the First Lady $50,000.00
  10. King, Kristin N. Deputy director of advance for the first lady $50,000.00
  11. Lineweaver, Lindsey M. Special assistant and personal aide to the first lady $47,500.00
  12. Rawson, Kimberly D. Executive assistant to the chief of staff to the First Lady $46,200.00
  13. Donoghue , Tarah C. Deputy press secretary to the First Lady $43,000.00
  14. Vogel, Campbell B. Deputy director of correspondence for the First Lady $42,500.00
  15. Block, Jonathan F. assistant press secretary to the First Lady $39,000.00

This amounts to a total of $1,083,700.00. Laura was no piker when it came to spending. But she pales in comparison with Miz Michelle, who requires eight to ten additional attendants at an extra cost to taxpayers of $700,000 and change – – the only change American taxpayers can believe in.

Obama’s Deception–keeps getting deeper

I just had to post this link to this article today… I think it says plenty.

The REAL Chrysler/GM Scandal

I received this e-mail message from my husband.  He typically does not forward anything he receives on to me so as not to influence my writing. But frankly, I was glad he sent this one to me. I only needed to check on a handful of the facts to realize that there were a litany of other suspicious aspects to this whole circus.

Read and research for yourselves.

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon’s Watergate or Clinton ‘s Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed? Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straights and federal government “graciously” offered to “buy the company” and keep them out of bankruptcy and “save jobs.” Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, “Too big to fail,” same story with GM.

The feds organized their “Automotive Task Force” to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House’s official Car Czar- literally – that’s what his title is. Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler had made this list of dealerships. That is not true. The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox New and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the “Automotive Task Force” headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens. Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed? Actually there’s a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only “Democratic” dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary’s campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama’s campaign. Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation, Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky “coincidence,” we’re certain.

Then comes another really wacky “coincidence.” On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton’s former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson. Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier. These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed – not one- while all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone. Isn’t that amazing? Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story’s there, and it’s in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn’t being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Worker’s union- Fiat owns 20%. The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn’t want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don’t agree with his political agenda. This is Nazi Germany stuff, and it’s happening right here, right now, in our back yard. There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the “Automotive Task Force” has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, “All that’s necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Car Czar No More
An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama’s Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom. According to CBS News, Rattner left “to return to private life and spend time with his family.” Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, “I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future.” By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York . Uh-oh! But, we’re certain that had nothing to do with his resignation. And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he’s being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn’t have anything to with his resignation- that’s ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to “spend more quality time with his family.”

Obama has 32 personally appointed “czars” who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority. But hey, we’re sure they all have “unique skills,” as Tim Geithner likes to say!

What the Media Didn’t Tell You About Obama’s Vacation

Last month Obama’s family attended several national treasures for a family vacation. What the media didn’t tell you though is about the egregious amounts of money that were spent on this vacation for travel, security, and the extreme  inconvenience the “royal family” imposed on other park goers over the weekend of August 15th.

This particular weekend was touted by by the national parks as a “fee free weekend.” However, instead of thousands of happy tourists who were able to provide a great experience for their families on a budget, Yellowstone park was plagued by grumpy travelrs as they were turned away so that Obama could watch Old Faithful in private.

To shed further light on the actual situation, I’m providing information as portrayed in a letter to the editor which, of course, was NOT published. The author unashamedly provides his information.

Hi:  The newspapers in the area (we live in) were once somewhat conservative. They are now owned by somebody like Randolph Hearst. Our local yellow journalism rag prints only tirades against the Republicans. No anti-Obama material or letters. The L.A. Times continues to be so far left that it’s blindsided by its own drivel.  I’m including the letter that I mailed to our local newspaper, which, of course, was never printed.

Letters to the Editors:

We just returned from a trip to Wyoming. While there we encountered the president in Yellowstone. He had us ejected from the area so that he could have a private showing of the Old Faithful eruption.

He had arrived with, what appeared to be, five giant, fully-armed Apache helicopters with his family, two dozen relatives, and dozens more bureaucrats and secret service men – in a twenty-limo motorcade. Every ranger within 50 miles was called in to direct traffic and help in visitor eviction from the Old Faithful area. Traffic lined up on the roads for miles since no one was allowed in the area. The place was completely shut down for four hours. Hundreds of people who had schedules had to turn back and not see the famous geyser.

Do you know anyone who gets a multi-million dollar vacation paid for by his employer only after 8 months on the job?

We were also there when President Ford arrived some years ago – in ONE helicopter.  He talked with us and addressed the crowd. Didn’t cost the millions that the current president charged to the taxpayers. But then, they are of different political and fiscal philosophies.

Hope all those “we are the change” voters are  happy with the change – spending millions for a personal vacation while many cannot afford a trip up the canyon – while the nation plunges deeper in debt.

Cordially,  Roy Russell      (At the time, you could read details in local papers and USA Today)
