It's about to happen again because there's one thing which Lerner, Holder, Obama, and all the other players in this comedic cast all have. It's the letter "D" after their last names -- and to our so-called "mainstream" news media, that's a magic letter. It's magic in that it, in itself, constitutes automatic vindication. We've been here before, and we've seen it in action before. Let a Republican make the slightest misstep, and the news media call for his head on a plate. Let a Democrat do the same thing -- or worse -- and the reaction from the media is nudge-nudge, wink-wink. These are the people who are supposed to be the people's watchdogs on our government -- and they are, when that government is in Republican hands. But when a Democratic administration is in power, the supposed watchdogs turn into cheerleaders: "Democrats, Democrats, rah, rah, rah; Democrats do no wrong!" Maybe they don't say it just that way, but the attitude is unmistakable: Democrats are golden, and always will be, no matter what they do.
As Barack Obama systematically grabs power for himself and tramples on the First, Second, and Tenth Amendments to our Constitution -- a document with which naturalized citizens, sadly, are far more familiar than the vast majority of their native-born counterparts -- there appears to be only two general reactions. There are those who cheer him on, the most visible of whom can be found in the "mainstream" news media and the entertainment industry, and those who simply shrug and say, each in his own way, "So what?" It is only a small minority of Americans who seem to be recognizing the danger and raising their voices in protest.
51 percent of our country's electorate has been effectively brainwashed by the news media, the entertainment industry, and the Democratic Party, which today has in every real respect become the Socialist Party in everything but name. Like so many zombies they blindly, even eagerly, follow Barack Obama, neither knowing nor caring where or to what they are being led. Sadly, by the time they realize they have voted away their freedom, they will be beyond caring.
The bias in all this, however, was irrefutable. For one, moderator Crowley clearly had no business injecting herself into the debate at all. But she did. Moreover, she knowingly aided and abetted President Obama in lying to his audience. In addition, during the debate she interrupted Romney a total of 28 times, as opposed to nine interruptions of Obama. In all three debates, lifelines were routinely thrown by the moderators to the Democratic candidates. Yet despite all of this, in each case the facts had been on the side of the Republicans. The Democrats, devoid of any genuine rebuttal, were reduced to spin, oratory -- and lies.
Both conventions trotted out women and Hispanic office holders, and there were no real surprises here. The difference, however, was in tone. The general Republican tone was upbeat and positive. While Obama's policies were deservedly attacked, Obama himself was not. Candidate Romney, in fact, seemed to go to great length to point out that while Barack Obama was a good family man, he was a bad president
Due to the recent change in government, Egypt exerts little authority over the Sinai Peninsula, which allows smugglers to operate without any interference, the police source stated. The central smuggling route to Gaza is based on the transfer of weapons from Iran to Sudan, from where the weapons are moved into Egypt before being smuggled into Gaza. Because Egypt's government remains in a state of flux, weapons smugglers are finding it easier to move contraband from Egypt into the Palestinian territories.
So, if a Democrat can't run on his record and his presidency was therefore unsuccessful, he then turns in desperation to the last Democrat president whose presidency was successful -- in this case, Clinton. This does not bother me personally; in fact, it amuses me more than anything else. What bothers me is the stubborn perception of Bill Clinton as having been a great president.
President Barack Obama made a similar revealing slip when he told business owners that they didn't build their businesses. "Somebody else did that," he told them -- meaning, of course, the government. What's half comical and half scary here, is that for the Comrade this isn't just a talking point. This is what he honestly believes -- and it may just end up being his Mondale Moment. If current polling is to be believed, practically all of Obama's attempts to smear Romney as an out-of-touch rich guy who outsources American jobs to foreign interests have come to naught. In poll after poll, Obama and Romney are separated by a margin of only 1-3 percentage points.
"Hope and Change" and "Change We Can Believe In" were in fact code phrases for communism. This is not a charge leveled lightly. It is based on a knowledge of who Barack Obama is, and what made him that way. It is based on the past associations that influenced him as a youth, and molded him into the man he is today. Specifically, it means the man Obama called his mentor during his developmental years: Frank Marshall Davis, a lifelong member of the Communist Party of the United States of America. It refers to perhaps the most evil genius our country ever produced, Saul Alinsky, author of Rules For Radicals, which would become Obama's bible. Even today this book, originally dedicated by its author to Satan (called Lucifer in the dedication), continues to serve as Obama's blueprint to marginalize and diminish his critics. It refers to communist sympathizer Valerie Jarrett, one of Obama's principal advisors, to former Communist Party member Van Jones, the one-time "Green Jobs Czar," to former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, and to the Marxist professors from whom Obama deliberately chose to learn in his college days.
Herman Cain has been successfully lynched, on a succession of largely baseless and unproven charges of sexual harassment made by women of questionable character and credibility. Two of four Cain accusers came forward publicly: Sharon Bialek and Karen Krashaar. Bialek, it was revealed, had a history of questionable credibility on personal matters, and Krashaar, a resident of Chicago, where Cain has never lived, just happened to live in the same apartment complex as Obama strategist/propagandist David Axelrod.
People must cease to be beguiled by a news media which have clearly taken sides and are complicit with the Democrats in their attempt to remake America into a European-style socialist republic, and ultimately, if Obama has his way, to a reincarnation of the Soviet Union. We must realize that at whatever level, be it municipal, state or national, a vote for a Democrat is a vote for socialism, which has failed just about everywhere it's been tried.
On the evening of June 30, 2011, Democrat strategist Chris Hahn, a former campaign worker for Sen. Chuck Shumer (D-N.Y.), repeated the lie once again: that our Constitution is "a living, breathing document that evolves over time." In order for the Constitution to be amended, the amendment must be proposed in Congress; passed by a two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate; it must be signed by the president; then be ratified by the individual states before it becomes part of our Constitution. It is a most cumbersome process. Establishment Clause of the First Amendment - "The Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion - nor - prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
Barack Obama is not a leader. Before becoming president, he had never been in charge of anything. He had never managed a business, never met a payroll, never balanced a budget. As a United States senator for all of 141 days, he had never chaired either a committee or a subcommittee, for obvious reason: He hadn't been there long enough to do either. His background before entering politics was that of an academic and a "community organizer."
The death of Osama bin Laden, while a major feather in the Obama cap, is not, and should not be seen as, total vindication. It does not erase the many egregious errors and miscues that preceded it: the bailouts, the failed stimulus package, the apology tours, the health care package most Americans didn't want, and the out-of-control national debt. It does not expunge Obama's indecision in moments of crisis: the BP oil disaster, and the events in Egypt and Libya. It does not forgive diplomatic slights to two of our staunchest allies, Great Britain and Israel, and the shabby treatment their prime minister and president, respectively, received upon their visits to the White House. It does not validate the government power grabs and the push for communism upon a country which historically has consistently rejected this form of government.
We are dropping bombs and missiles on Libya, but are not at war - we are engaged in a "kinetic military action". Hillary RODHAM Clinton has informed us that responsibility has been handed over to NATO. We elected a man about whom we knew next to nothing. And leaders are supposed to lead! He waffled. He dithered. He played golf. He took vacations. He took "official" trips. His foreign policy at the outset was one of apology and debasement. Is anyone beginning to suspect that we have followed a talking white rabbit down a mysterious hole that leads to mad hatters and Cheshire cats ruled by a deck of cards? George W. Bush will somehow be blamed for of all, as the "mainstream" news media will spare no effort to eventually discover.
Obama first declared (Libyan dictator Muammar) Khadafi must go, then flip-flopped on that objective, and now refuses to call that which fits every definition of war a war, calling it instead a "kinetic military action." In each situation, where nearly every previous president would have stepped forward and taken decisive action, Obama has instead sat on his hands, dithered and procrastinated, and, when he finally decided to act, offered up too little too late.

About the KingsCalendar Publisher
R.P.BenDedek is the owner and Editor of KingsCalendar.com which was originally set up to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran'.
Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.
