Stopping Barack Obama's Happy Talk Express

Barack won't be so liked when the folks learn about his reprehensible view on infanticide, the racist views of the man he has chosen to be his "Christian" minister, his contemptible connections to Kenyan extremism (e.g., his brother, Abongo "Roy" Obama, a militant Muslim who preaches that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture" and his friend (who also claims to be his paternal cousin) Raila Odinga, the unsuccessful presidential candidate in the last Kenyan presidential election) and how he managed to become the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review without having anything written by him published there.

These days Barack Hussein Obama is thinking that he will be elected the 44th President of the United States this November.

JFK managed (barely) to be elected President of the United States in 1960, by successfully concealing his Addison's disease and his annulled first marriage (references were cut out of books in libraries).

Barack is hoping to win by continuing to proclaim pleasing platitudes, keeping problematic secrets and appearing non-threatening (he's mentioning that he's a cousin of Vice President Dick Cheney on his white mother's side but mum about his Kenyan relations on his black father's side and his ties to them).

Like JFK, Barack's got a big advantage: JFK got 80% of the Catholic vote, because he was the first Catholic with a realistic chance of winning, and he cleverly challenged non-Catholics to spare themselves the brand of bigot by voting for him too; Barack is getting 90% of the black vote in Democrat primaries, because he's the first black with a realistic chance of winning, and he (and his liberal media allies) are cleverly challenging non-blacks to spare themselves the brand of bigot by voting for him too. (Example: Geraldo Rivera had no problem with 90% of blacks voting for Barack, but Geraldo railed against white racism because only 30% of whites voted for him in Louisiana's Democrat primary.)

The Standard, a pro-Barack Kenyan newspaper, reported more than a year ago (January 30, 2007) that "there are details in Obama’s life that have yet to be subjected to full scrutiny" and "Obama’s African family is particularly complicated."

Those statements were true then and they are still true (which is outrageous as to the failure, or refusal, to fully scrutinize).

If Barack was a white Mormon instead of what he is, long ago he would have been fully scrutinized by the liberal media.

John W. Lillpop, in "Have Conservatives Unwittingly Created A Black Camelot?":

"Mind you, ending Hillary Rodham Clinton's fairy tale pursuit of the White House has been a noble and patriotic undertaking.

"Conservatives were acting with only the purest of intentions and their hearts were in the right place as they labored feverishly to save America from what was perceived as the greatest danger to our democracy, civilized society, and humankind in general.

"Of course, conservatives did not count on the rock star qualities of Barack Obama.

"Unlike Hillary, Obama is charismatic, sympathetic, and likable. That makes him a much greater threat than Hillary, whose disapproval ratings hover right around 50 percent, and who has all the charm of a twelve-foot rattlesnake that has been interrupted while engaged in procreation.

"So while conservative rhetoric worked wonders in taming the Hildabeast, who and what will keep Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate, rather than as primary occupant of a famous White House in a mostly black neighborhood in Washington, D.C.?"

Don't dismiss Hillary yet.

So far Team Clinton has been pretty much treating Barack as a possible vice presidential candidate instead of exposing him.

But Barack is exposable and Team Clinton still plans to win.

Team Clinton mentioned Barack's illicit drug use, but Barack had included that in his book.

After Barack bashed Hillary during one of their debates, Hillary pointed out that as a young attorney he had represented a Chicago slum lord (currently under federal indictment).

But Team Clinton has been reluctant to point out what's NOT likeable about Barack and Hillary even said during a debate before the New Hampshire primary that Barack is very likeable (to which the cad sneered, looking down his nose, that she was "likeable enough").

National Journal reported that Barack is the most liberal United States Senator for the best of reasons: it's true.

That's right: compared to extremist Barack, Hillary is moderate.

On the life issue, Barack's WORSE than Hillary.

Jill Stanek:

"I'm quite sure on the issue of infanticide Clinton displayed far worse leadership in the eyes of abortion activists than Obama.

"I'd love for the media to force the two of them to discuss support, opposition, or equivocation on infanticide and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in one of their debates."

Previously Hillary criticized Barack for his "present" votes as an Illinois state senator, claiming that by voting present instead of yes or no, he had failed to demonstrate leadership.

But three of Barack's controversial "present" votes involved a proposed Illinois equivalent of the federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which Hillary and the rest of the United States Senate supported in 2002, they were effectively "no" votes and Hillary should have attacked Barack as an infanticide supporter.

Barack became Illinois' junior United States Senator instead of Ambassador Alan Keyes by winning the most votes in 2004, but during their debates Barack demonstrated his willingness to lie to win an election and those who want to stop the Hope Peddler, be they Clintonistas or conservatives, would do well to put the spotlight on...INFANTICIDE.

The record unambiguously shows that as an Illinois state senator Barack was fiercely determined to protect infanticide instead of life by denying "personhood" status to born infants. (The Constitution originally treated a slave as three-fifths of a person, but Barack denied born infants ANY personhood and their God-given right to life.)

Terence Jeffrey:

"Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever.

"He is so pro-abortion he refused as an Illinois state senator to support legislation to protect babies who survived late-term abortions because he did not want to concede — as he explained in a cold-blooded speech on the Illinois Senate floor — that these babies, fully outside their mothers' wombs, with their hearts beating and lungs heaving, were in fact 'persons.'

"'Persons,' of course, are guaranteed equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment."

No HOPE for those babies, if Barack has his way!

Mr. Jeffrey duly noted that Barack started lying about this subject at least as early as 2004.

Mr. Jeffrey:

"In 2004, U.S. Senate-candidate Obama mischaracterized his opposition to this legislation. Now, as a presidential frontrunner, he should be held accountable for what he actually said and did about the Born Alive Infants Bill.

"State and federal versions of this bill became an issue earlier this decade because of 'induced labor abortion.' This is usually performed on a baby with Down's Syndrome or another problem discovered on the cusp of viability. A doctor medicates the mother to cause premature labor. Babies surviving labor are left untreated to die.

"Jill Stanek, who was a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill., testified in the U.S. Congress in 2000 and 2001 about how 'induced labor abortions' were handled at her hospital.

"'One night,' she said in testimony entered into the Congressional Record, 'a nursing co-worker was taking an aborted Down's Syndrome baby who was born alive to our Soiled Utility Room because his parents did not want to hold him, and she did not have the time to hold him. I couldn't bear the thought of this suffering child lying alone in a Soiled Utility Room, so I cradled and rocked him for the 45 minutes that he lived.'

"In 2001, Illinois state Sen. Patrick O'Malley introduced three bills to help such babies. One required a second physician to be present at the abortion to determine if a surviving baby was viable. Another gave the parents or a public guardian the right to sue to protect the baby's rights. A third, almost identical to the federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act President Bush signed in 2002, simply said a 'homo sapiens' wholly emerged from his mother with a 'beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord or definite movement of voluntary muscles' should be treated as a '"person," "human being," "child" and "individual."'

"Stanek testified about these bills in the Illinois Senate Judiciary Committee, where Obama served. She told me this week he was 'unfazed' by her story of holding the baby who survived an induced labor abortion.

"On the Illinois Senate floor, Obama was the only senator to speak against the baby-protecting bills. He voted 'present' on each, effectively the same as a 'no.'

"'Number one,' said Obama, explaining his reluctance to protect born infants, 'whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the Equal Protection Clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we're really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a — a child, a 9-month old — child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it — it would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.'

"That June, the U.S. Senate voted 98-0 in favor of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act (although it failed to become law that year). Pro-abortion Democrats supported it because this language was added: 'Nothing in this section shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being born alive as defined in this section.'

"Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer explained that with this language the 'amendment certainly does not attack Roe v. Wade.'

"On July 18, 2002, Democratic Sen. Harry Reid called for the bill to be approved by unanimous consent. It was.

"That same year, the Illinois version of the bill came up again. Obama voted 'no.'

"In 2003, Democrats took control of the Illinois Senate. Obama became chairman of the Health and Human Services committee. The Born Alive Infant bill, now sponsored by Sen. Richard Winkel, was referred to this committee. Winkel also sponsored an amendment to make the Illinois bill identical to the federal law, adding — word for word — the language Barbara Boxer said protected Roe v. Wade. Obama still held the bill hostage in his committee, never calling a vote so it could be sent to the full senate.

"A year later, when Republican U.S. senate candidate Alan Keyes challenged Obama in a debate for his opposition to the Born Alive Infant Bill, Obama said: 'At the federal level there was a similar bill that passed because it had an amendment saying this does not encroach on Roe v. Wade. I would have voted for that bill.'

"In fact, Obama had personally killed exactly that bill."

Barack seems so likeable, but, like the Emperor's new clothes, it's illusion.

Barack won't be so liked when the folks learn about his reprehensible view on infanticide, the racist views of the man he has chosen to be his "Christian" minister, his contemptible connections to Kenyan extremism (e.g., his brother, Abongo "Roy" Obama, a militant Muslim who preaches that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture" and his friend (who also claims to be his paternal cousin) Raila Odinga, the unsuccessful presidential candidate in the last Kenyan presidential election) and how he managed to become the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review without having anything written by him published there.

World Net Daily Exclusive Commentary by Donald Hank dated January 15, 2008:

"Muslim-backed Raila Odinga lost the election; Christian leader Mwai Kibaki won. Now, nothing in Africa is ever cut-and-dried. Other issues are tribal conflicts, with Kibaki belonging to the Kikuyu and Odinga being of the Luo tribe. Odinga also is believed to lean more to the left. Both were raised Christian, although Odinga studied in East Germany, where he was certainly exposed to the atheistic teachings of communism. Odinga charges a rigged election, and European leaders have called for a new vote.

"Why do the Muslims back the more left-leaning Odinga? Like leftists in Europe and America, Odinga and his faction want to use Islam to oppose Christianity, which is seen as an impediment to the left's agenda. Why Islam is not likewise seen as an impediment is really beyond me. The Soviet Union found out just how tenaciously Islamists fight the left when the chips are down. But never mind that for now.

"What matters is that the mainstream press doesn't even suggest there was contention between the Muslims and Christians over this election, much less that religion was the main sore spot."

Barack must not escape full scrutiny. And the pro-Barack Standardm writing of Barack and his visit to Kenya in the summer of 2007, reported: "The young Obama’s visit has also drawn excitement from politicians, including Orange Democratic Movement luminary Raila Odinga. Raila, who visited Obama in Illinois, was among political figures who announced the Senator’s planned visit to Kenya a few months ago."
