ChiBama Politics – Creation of an Obamanista Army of Thugs
If you want to know where ObamaCare is going, you need to look to Obama’s past. CitizenWells has dug out an old American Thinker article that does exactly that. ObamaCare seems destined to bring into being an army of thugs controlling 1/5 of the U.S. Economy. SEIU & ACORN health workers helping nursing home residents and the comatose voters VOTE? Why is SEIU busing in their minions to counter ordinary Americans showing up at town-hall meetings? One does not have to think too hard. Don’t let your elective Representatives get away with some sort of “did it for Kennedy” out that will bring about a health system with a “dependent” army of health worker voters that could put bringing America back from socialism out of reach. Just look at Great Britain and the health worker voting block that keeps ordinary Brits trapped.
SEIU,Service Employees International Union, thugs have been a prominent feature at many of the town hall meetings on health care. Did you ever wonder why they were there. This article from American Thinker on January 6, 2009, months before these town hall meetings, will shed some light on their presence. And while your reading this article, note the mention of Robert Blackwell, you remember, the man who received many favors from Obama and donated a lot of money to Obama’s campaigns.
“Pay-to-Play Politics, the SEIU and Obamacare
The Governor of Illinois, for all his well-documented faults, has performed at least one valuable public service. He has made it clear to the meanest intelligence that our new President-elect emerged from a hopelessly corrupt political culture. Barack Obama oozed from the same stinking Chicago swamp that produced Blagojevich, and a man whose formative years were spent wallowing in the muck with such creatures isn’t likely to be long in White House before the stench of pay-to-play politics begins to pervade the place. That this has important implications for the future of health care in this country has already been demonstrated by a brazen episode of cronyism involving one of America’s most prestigious health care institutions, the University of Chicago Medical Center.
It is no secret that, immediately following Obama’s election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, UCMC created a new position called “Vice President for Community and External Affairs” and bestowed it-along with a lavish salary-upon Michelle Obama. It is less well known, however, that one of her husband’s cronies subsequently received preferential treatment in a UCMC contract bidding process. Specifically, the medical center altered its normal procedure for soliciting contact proposals so that longtime Obama “friend” and political donor, Robert Blackwell, could submit a bid to upgrade UCMC’s intranet. Naturally, officials of the medical center deny that the expanded process was in any way connected to Obama’s influence, but Blackwell Consulting was awarded the $600,000 contract.
What does this have to do with national health care policy? Well, Mr. Obama achieved his November victory with more than a little help from such “friends.” These benefactors paid a lot to put him in the White House, and they weren’t all motivated by a desire “make history.” Among the most generous of Obama’s supporters was another entity that has figured prominently in the Illinois culture of corruption — the Service Employees International Union.….Continue Reading
ChiBama Politics – Ensuring a Super-Dominate State Run Media
Consider the ObamaCare SEIU/ACORN connections, the General Electric/MSNBC/Obama connections; then add to it 24/7 state run media, and Obama has the recipe to complete the permanent destruction of America. It really is just that serious. The primary sources of the “rest of the story” will be effectively silenced and ordinary Americans will not have the full and complete information necessary to make informed decisions in politics and government.
FCC’s Chief Diversity Officer Wants Private Broadcasters to Pay a Sum Equal to Their Total Operating Costs to Fund Public Broadcasting
Thursday, August 13, 2009
By Matt Cover
(CNSNews.com) – Mark Lloyd, newly appointed Chief Diversity Officer of the Federal Communications Commission, has called for making private broadcasting companies pay licensing fees equal to their total operating costs to allow public broadcasting outlets to spend the same on their operations as the private companies do….
…Along with this money, Lloyd would regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focused on “diverse views” and government activities….
This is nothing more than a back door attempt to silence news and opinions that do not tow the official government/liberal line. No radio station can stay in business paying fines equaling their total operating costs.
ChiBama Politics – Propoganda
Michelle Malkin has a post up that points out one more target of the Obama Administration, your children. Take the innocent and inexperienced, feed them only “approved information”, revise the teaching of America’s founding and founding documents, misrepresent the sacrifices of those who came before to protect the Constitution and our freedoms; and it is becoming more and more clear that Obama is growing his army that he talked about.

If Team Obama could send their ACORN foot soldiers into taxpayer-funded schools to collect Census data, they would.
Instead, they’re turning your own children into proxy Census collectors. Specifically targeted: Bilingual children whom the government is relying on to reach non-English-speaking parents. (See my April 3, 2009 column: Obama Census – No Illegal Alien Left Behind.)
The White House is also joining with Sesame Street to help preschoolers evangelize about the Census to their parents.
Via USA Today:
Anyone tempted to ignore the 2010 Census will have a tough time doing it — especially if they have kids in school.
The government has launched Census in Schools, an all-out campaign targeting superintendents, principals, teachers, students and, indirectly, parents, as schools open across the nation this month and next. The message: The Census is coming and here’s why everyone should care.
The goal is to send posters, teaching guides, maps and lesson plans to every school in the nation, Puerto Rico and U.S. island territories to encourage everyone to participate in the national count. The materials will land in more than 118,000 schools and reach 56 million students.
“It’s great to reach the children because children are such strong voices in their homes,” says Renee Jefferson-Copeland, chief of the Census schools program. “In households that are linguistically isolated, they can express the information to their parents.”
…Between January and March, the Census Bureau will help plan a week of Census education in schools. During Census Week, teachers will devote 15 minutes every day for five days to the topic by discussing such things as civic participation, confidentiality or geography.

Larry Sinclair’s Journey –
Larry Sinclair is urging people to go to town-halls across the nation and meet the SEIU/ACORN ObamaCare Tour. I agree with him. However, I believe that it is vitally important that we remain armed only with the facts and truth. If we are confronted by Obama’s thugs, we must remain peaceful. India’s course was changed by thousands of people willing to walk into awaiting batons that would fill the streets will the innocent blood of peaceful protesters. Martin Luther King achieved amazing change by walking into violence armed only with truth and courage.
America is waking up.

Here is a valid question for all to consider: who really wrote the letter asking that the MA law prohibiting the Governor from appointing a replacement to a vacant Senate seat be changed? Was the letter reported to be from Ted Kennedy written by Kennedy or was it written by others?
This is a valid question considering reports today about Ted Kennedy’s condition prior to his passing this morning.
Let us not forget in the light being shown on Kennedy’s death that Astroturf Obama style on Health Care rolled out yesterday with the money of none other than George Soros’ HCAN along with ACORN and the SEIU. The DNC/OFA’s Health Care Reform Bus tour needs to be met at every stop with Americans unafraid of the SEIU and ACORN thugs.
Democrat Deceit –
Just a quick update on the tale of Democrats trying to place blame for vandalism of Democratic Office on Town-Hall Conservatives. This update shows that it is critically important that our side continues to live up to our beliefs and ideals and remain peaceful but determined.

Last night, I told you about the fake political hate crime here in Colorado at the Denver Democrat Party headquarters involving one “Maurice Schwenkler.”
This hammer-wielding person has been charged with felony mischief. This person’s accomplice is still on the loose.
Eleven windows were smashed, causing $11,000 in damage.
Schwenkler is a far Left nutball and transgender activist who guys by “Ariel Attack”. As part of Schwenkler’s work for the SEIU-tied 527 group Colorado Citizens Coalition, he/she canvassed for a state Democratic candidate, Mollie Collum.
Schwenkler has a prior criminal history…
On the last day of the 2008 Republican National Convention, he was charged with misdemeanor unlawful assembly in St. Paul, Minn.
Court records provided through the St. Paul Pioneer Press show he was jailed about 2 a.m.
…and unhinged grievances against Obama over gay rights, with declared intent to wreak havoc as inspired by eco-terrorist at the Earth Liberation Front:
The anti-Obama site says that Schwenkler is one of the bloggers behind Gender Munity, a site that advocates a direct-action approach to gay rights. One post, a “Communique from the Gender Liberation Front,” takes inspiration from radical activist groups like the Earth Liberation Front and the “Stonewall Rioters” by “seeking vulnerable targets and unleashing chaos”…
State Democrat Party Chair Pat Waak refuses to apologize for smearing conservative town hall protesters and stands by her political attack:
