Video: CNBC’s Santelli & Chicago Traders React to Obama’s “Pay the Loser’s Mortgage” Plan

I just had to share this video with everyone…

On a CNBC show this morning one of their economics correspondants who regularly reports from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange decided to really tell the world how he feels about Obama’s proposed Mortgage Bailout…

In the interest of time, which I have been severely lacking lately, I will let this exchange — where normally silent traders actually can’t resist getting a few words in themselves with — speak for me on this issue, too.

Oh — I almost forgot!!!

Mr. Santelli – if you’re serious about that ‘Chicago Tea Party’ I propose you hold it on July 4th…  We could all meet up on Rush Street Beach with a package of Tea Bags each, and then when we’re done we can all head over to Taste of Chicago, and view the Fireworks!  Count me in!

In fact, if this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in as well – perhaps we should all drop Mr. Santelli a line over at CNBC — here is a link to the CNBC Feedback page.

The Democrats’ Planned Assault on the U.S. Constitution

Make no mistake about it, change is certainly in store for the United States if the Democrats, under the leadership of one Barack H. Obama, get their way.  However, it is not the kind of change a majority of people in these United States are wanting, nor hoping for.  Contrary to the popular notion that Obama’s supporters would like the world to believe, Obama did not receive a “Landslide Victory” as they appear to think.  The truth is — many U.S. citizens do NOT vote, and many NON-U.S. Citizens have been found TO vote in our elections.  And, many of his supporters either don’t understand socialism, some don’t realize that Obama’s “Change” stands for socialism, and some are convinced — for God only knows what reason — that Socialism/Communism is a good thing!

U.S. Elections & Associated Problems

The U.S. Constitution is the most important document that stand as the Law above all others in our country.  It assure our God-given Rights of Liberty, Justice, and Freedom, and constrains the Government from abusing its citizen "employers".

The U.S. Constitution is the most important document that stand as the Law above all others in our country. It assures our God-given Rights of Liberty, Justice, and Freedom, and constrains the Government from abusing its citizen "employers".

To get started with the basics, we have what could be called a Democratically Elected Representative Constitutionally Regulated Republic-Style Government in place in the United States.  While over the years the states have lost more and more power to the Federal Government (which was not supposed to happen, and which was, incidentally the REAL reason for the Civil War, but I digress)… The government leaders that sit in Washington D.C. are supposed to obey the United States Constitution, and be answerable to the people if they violate it.  Too often it seems as if we have no control whatsoever over those in Washington – even if they SAY they will stand for one position, too often they “flip-flop” or vote for something they should stand against, in exchange for pork barrel projects that reward their campaign contributors and the people in their home districts.  The more powerful a Congressmen, the more reward they can give, and thus the more power they earn — a vicious cycle rife with corruption.

Unless we demand accountability in Washington, and demand the other branches of Government to perform the checks and balances necessary to assure our Country and its Citizens’ Rights and Protections, we don’t stand a chance against Man’s greed and the influence of corruption inherent in politics.

I don’t care which party you favor in the general elections — you CANNOT think that there are not crucial problems with our electoral system.  There are too many opportunities for abuse, and not enough checks and balances in place in our modern system to assure an untampered with vote.  Even the need to turn around the numbers so quickly so the Media can “call the election” (most times before the West even CLOSES their ballot boxes) and “get on with it”.  It is my wish to see our electoral system adjusted so that we can assure that the people really are getting their voices heard.  We need more assurance that our vote is counted, and counted correctly.

Little ACORNS Grow Into Trees of Fraud

"Little ACORNS Grow Into Trees of Fraud"

One of the ways that this issue presented itself during this last election was the presence of Federal Investigations into organizations such as ACORN, and the banking scandals, and the mortgage crisis.  Just like the bumper sticker I designed states, “Little ACORNS grow into trees of fraud”, and it’s the truth.  That Obama won the election, and that he was very much tied to these organizations through those that supported him, and voted for him should serve as no surprise.

The real trick now, in taking back our government — for the people and by the people — is to assure that these types of abuses can never happen again.  I’m not sure at this exact moment how best to go about that but, you can be damn sure I’ll be thinking about it seriously.  [And, just in case anyone got the wrong idea, I am definitely not interested in violence either…  Those that would advocate such at this point do NOT value the Freedom and Liberty we do have, IMHO.]  What we really need to work on is educating the people of this country about the truth of socialism/Communism that the enemies of Freedom have proposed to foist upon us.

Bills Already Introduced, and Some “On the Way”

We’ll go through the following one at a time, and quickly address the important issues in each.  In the future each of these specific bills will receive its own entry, but for now, being aware of what’s coming down the pike would be a good idea.  The following proposals are each destructive to our Constitutional Republic in a variety of ways, that people should be made aware of.  If we stand together as a people and voice our opposition, there is a chance we can prevent these Acts from passing, and as a result be able to hold our Representatives accountable for their behavior in our names.  I only have time to review a couple of these bills at this time, but rest assured, there are more I will address in future posts that I will be writing as soon as I’m able to do so.

1.) Freedom of Speech & the Fairness Doctrine — Yet again, the Democrats are dusting off this draconian policy and attempting to stifle the First Amendment.  They propagandize this to the people of America as “presenting both sides” however, this assure that the major two parties only get their ideas and beliefs expressed, and in America there is far from anything resembling only two opinions.  That’s the first thing that’s flawed and wrong about this as far as the interests of the country’s citizens.

The second thing that is wrong with this legislation is that it established government control over the ability of various sources of information and media, and affect the Freedom of the Press, and the People’s Rights to express their viewpoints through support and association with certain groups of people — most of whom share a certain set of political beliefs.  It is better to offer the freedom of “all sides” to maintain a presence in the public discourse, especially encouraging a wide variety of inclusive viewpoints, than it is to espouse only two set, standard “government approved” sides to an argument.  What are they going to do — patrol and license various media personalities to make sure that what they are saying on the air, or in print fits a certain line — all dictated by them?

This is indeed what all “good socialists”, and “good little communists” do when they take power within a country.  They go after the Freedom of Dissent, and the Freedom of Speech.  Make no doubt about it, this is exactly what Obama and his fellow Democrats within the U.S. Congress are planning to do by first passing the “Fairness Doctrine” and specifically targetting popular radio personalities – first the Conservative ones, but then the “Leftie” ones that disagree with the “wing” of the party in charge as well.  All information reaching the public will then be scrutinized by the Government, FIRST and our rights will then no longer be in the hands of the individual citizens.  And THIS my fellow Americans means that they have then taken away the First Amendment of the Constitution.  Step One… Accomplished…

[A Short History & Current Events Lesson: All of the “greats” within the Socialist/Communist world have started with this exact same step.  One only needs to look at the world as it stands around us right now.  Look at those leaders who are in power in the various boldly Socialist/Communist/Fascist governments currently in power (Venezuela (Chavez), Cuba (Castro), Russia (Putin & Medvedev – see here), Iran (Ahmadinejad & the Mullahtocracy), Syria (Assad & his Associates), China (The Chinese Communist Party), and look at those “great” dictators in history of the various Communist/Socialist/Fascist movements (Stalin (and other Russian leaders), Hitler, Mussolini,  Mao Tse Tung, etc…). ]

Obama is a self-admitted Socialist (see thie YouTube Video – “2001 Obama Interview with WBEZ.FM”), and a friend and close associate of admitted and known Communist Revolutionaries, as well as other dictators (like his tribal relative back in Kenya – Raila Odingo), and various other criminals and those of questionable character in the radical “leftist” movement (not to mentione. (Back to Odinga for a moment… Obama’s friendship, and support was given to those who under Odinga’s leadership and tolerance were those Muslim terrorists and murderers who persecuted and killed Christians, and demanded blood for power within Kenya itself — and all of this he did by spending U.S. taxpayer’s money to physically campaign for Odinga during Kenya’s elections, as well as, according to some from within the campaign — with the knowledge of their plans for a violent outcome should Odinga lose said election (see this You Tube Video – “Barack Obama & Raila Odinga“).)

We must stop the plans for the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” or leave ourselves with one step accomplished in an effort to control the populace and transfer more power to the Federal Government.  For more information on the Fairness Doctrine, please see the “keyword at the left”, or read this past posting on the “Liberty Rocks” blog: Democrats for Censorship ( or Freedom of Speech vs. the Fairness Doctrine).

2.) Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 [H.R. 45 — Sponsor Bobby Rush [D-IL]] – This bill is being offered for passage by the Demcorat Congress by Obama’s fellow Chicago politician and former Black Panther “Community Organizing” Leader Bobby Rush.  This proposed law would make it possible for future politicians to utilize the system and effectively create a system whereby guns could easily be confiscated, and/or the licensed owners of guns tracked down.  Always remember — at the end of the law is a gun pointing at you to somehow take you into custody at the hands of government agents, or other Law Enforcement Officers.  Never view a piece of legislation as “good for us” if it violates the U.S. Constitution.  If it is Unconstitutional it is not needed, nor is it wanted within the United States and those who value freedom and protection from an oppressive government.

Gun Control is a losing proposition for peacable people within every country it has been accomplished within.  If you talk to some immigrants that have lived under oppressive rule who come to America, or if one could speak to victims of Gun Control (like the Jews that died in the Warsaw Ghetto) the one thing they would tell you is not to let yourself be disarmed as you then have no protection against a government that will always, eventually be run by someone who really does want to control you and use you, and in some cases even kill you if you dare disagree, or sometimes just because you exist.

This is why those that care about the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms for the protection of our rights guaranteed by said Constitution must stand against this bill.  He has no co-sponsors as of yet, but that doesn’t mean much in a Congress that is seriously tipped in favor of one ideology over another — in this case we are dealing with Socialists and Communists.  Just like silencing their critics, the other thing all dictatorial Governments with absolute power over the people do to keep big brother’s eyes upon them is to strip them of the means of self-defense.  Again, as with the First Amendment, all of the “great” Socialist/Communist leaders need to exert control by excessive force upon the people to keep power.  Obama’s Socialist government is no exception — here we see introduced H.R. 45 which pushes the door wide open for future abuse of over-reaching power in the Federal Government in opposition to the written Constitution.

Here’s the other thing that must always be mentioned about Gun Control Legislation – only those who would already obey the law are governed by them.  What I’m trying to say is this: Do you really think a criminal bent on achieving their will by any means necessary is going to car what some stack of books says in the Capitol Building about what they are about to do?  Obviously that answer is now — so why do you think the government should pass a law preventing others from protecting themselves, and their fellow citizens from harm.  The police are only legally there “after the fact” and to apprehend and punish the abuser of the laws – not those affected by them, even though nowadays most police departments try to offer Victims of Crime and other Survivors a wide range of services.

We need to stand together to make sure that this bill never even gets close to a signature on Barack Obama’s desk as we know he would not veto it, but would definitely make it law.  In the past Obama has already stated his desire to restrict the ownership and possession of firearms of all sorts – especially those needed to protect oneself from home invasion, or a criminal in a large urban area (where the risk to one’s life and personal property is far greater) and to precisely those who need them most.  Bobby Rush lead the Chicago “chapter” of the Black Panther Terrorist Organization.  They prayed on people’s fears and worries in exerting pressure over their fellow citizens.  They were also the type that didn’t respect laws meant for “others” or to supposedly “keep them down”, and they supported, and were supported by Communists/Socialists as well.  It will only mean more power for them if they don’t have to worry about an armed populace any longer — well, at least until the government cracks down on them as well.

We will look at this bill again in future posts, and I’ll try to keep everyone up-to-date on it as I’m able to as well as bring you more information regarding the Democrats’ plans for our country.  It’s important we don’t let any of this legislation pass.  It will be harder and harder as we experience the “change” that their “progressive” agenda will attempt to establish in their effort to gain pure and complete control and implement their version of Socialism/Communism within the U.S..

Who does Obama “hang with”?

There are less than 30 days before the Presidential Election, and things are REALLY ramping up on both sides…

One of the issues that Conservatives and Republicans have been trying to inform America’s voters about are the “men behind the man” – that is, Obama’s friends, mentors, advisors, contributors, business associates and staff members.  When one takes a close look at who makes up Obama’s social network one finds a truly frightening group of people — a group that includes known Domestic Terrorists, Racists, Islamic Radicals, Communists, and Criminals.

Obama’s campaign has tried to deflect any negatives arising out of his associations with these people by saying that he doesn’t really know them that well at all.  This is the same method of minimizing that he tried to use when confronted with Reverend Jeremiah Wright Sr. whom Obama identified as his “Spiritual Mentor”.  It didn’t work too well for Obama when he tried to imply that he had no idea that Rev. Wright held Anti-American, and racist views stemming from his interpretation of the “Black Values System” (a Black-Identity Religious Ideaology that is loosely based on Christianity).  Obama was in fact a member of Wright’s church for over 20 years, and credits Wright with “bringing him to Jesus”.

Obama is trying this method yet again in relation to Bill Ayers, a known Communist Radical Terrorist who according to his own words is “guilty as hell” for bombing the Capitol Building and the Pentagon during the Vietnam War as part of the group he founded: The Weatherman (aka The Weather Underground).  Obama originally said that Ayers was, “Just a guy in my neighborhood”.  The truth is a much different story…

Ayers and Obama go “way back”.  It was Bill Ayers who gave Obama’s political career a “kick-start” by hiring him to sit on the board of the Chicago Annenburg Challenge.  Obama and Ayers also sat together on the Board of the “Woods Foundation” – a liberal organization in Chicago.  Ayers gave Obama’s political career another “kick-start” by launching Obama’s Illinois State Senate Campaign in the living room of his home.  Far from being just “some guy” in Obama’s neighborhood it is a known fact that they are much more than mere acquaintaces that wave to each other when they pick up their papers in the morning!

The list of Obama’s dubious ties with many known Communists, Radicals, Terrorists & Terrorist Supporters, Criminals, Racists and others is long…  Far from being the stuff of “Change” Obama’s judgement, and his associations point to just more “Politics as Usual” – especially as a Chicago Politician.  [For those who may not know, Chicago is infamous for the “Daley Political Machine”.  This Democrat political system basically assures that if one wants to “make it in Chicago” as a politician they have to know exactly whose hands to grease, exactly what beliefs one needs to hold and put forward (lock-step with the liberal agenda), and you also have to know how to “fight dirty”.  For nothing in Chicago politics is “clean”.  Obama is just another in a long line of Corrupt, Dirty and Lying Chicago Politicians.]

Well, as you can tell, I could really go on and on about all of this…  Truly one could write a very interesting book based solely on Obama’s shady dealings, and ties to these individuals.

Rather than go into listing every single associate and their history I would like to direct you to a website that makes all the connections between Obama and these people easy to see, and also includes a wealth of information about the people themselves.  That website is: BarackBook.com.

I think you’ll also agree that Barackbook.com includes a humorous layout, spoofing on the very famous “Facebook.com”.  The site itself injects a bit of levity in what otherwise is a scary and very serious issue.  The information compiled at this site is fascinating.  Be sure also to follow the links to other sites associated with it!  You will learn a LOT about Obama, Biden, and the cast of characters behind the Obama Campaign!
