In the summer of 2009 when conservative bloggers, tea party bloggers and independent bloggers were enduring a firestorm of slander, hate commentary, ridicule, and mockery from left wing mainstream media, few could have predicted the pure vindication that the “heads-in-the-sand” clueless big media talking heads would finally receive one year and a few months later.
We marched on Washington. Not just once, but several times. We not only blogged our outrage, our patriotism, our truth-telling about the Obama White House and their socialist agenda, but we talked to our friends, families, neighbors, our kids, our kid’s teachers, our congregations, and everyone we could find who still gave a half a damn about the future of the nation and the condition it might be in when America’s children inherit it 20 years from now. For these efforts we were scoffed, mocked, derided, ridiculed, called out, labeled as racists and worse.
And then we tried talking to the MSM press at Town Hall meetings everywhere. Everyone knows how that went.
So, we took a step back, and we told the Obama White House:
“We will remember in November.”
And we did. Not in 60 years have American voters opened their mouths politically in such numbers and roared like a lion at the polls the way we did on November 2nd 2010. My friends, let us NEVER forget who owns this country: We do.
WE pay the taxes, that fund the federal government. WE pay the taxes that build the roads. WE pay the taxes that line senators and congressman’s pockets, make their mortgage payments,fund their prissy country club memberships, clothe and send their kids to elite east coast Illuminati infested schools, and when WE say we have had enough and FINALLY get mad, then the party in Washington D.C. is OVER.
And if the Obama White House did not realize that before, you better believe they know it now. Believe me also when I tell you that we are not done yet. “We have not yet begun to fight.”
I’d like to present the ANF 2010 Citizen Journalist Video of the Year: to the people in this great country, who awoke like a shot, who stirred their friends and neighbors and who roared at the polls like lions on November 2nd 2010.

Regarding my internet life, about 4 months ago I did a very strange thing. This “strange thing” that I did was so utterly out of character, that it took me aback for more than a month, and I have pondered it daily since. Before I tell the reader what the “strange thing” I did recently was, you must know something about me.
I have been a dedicated webophile since before such silly words were even “a twinkle in a geek’s inner brain codes”. I was using the internet back in 1994 before the word “internet” was coined. We all refered to the computer networks we used as the “world wide web” back then, the origin of the “WWW” prefix for internet addresses.
In those exciting early years, even progressive bankers in Seattle thought that the “world wide web” was a more or less a collegiate technology playpen and a fluke, nothing that should be given serious thought or investment. Email was still a cute novelty, and Microsoft was too busy wrestling with the latest release of it’s QDOS, it’s “quick and dirty operating system” to be bothered with putting together a web presence.
I had the unique distinction during 1994 and early 1995 of being one of the first women in the United States to begin building web pages for myself and clients, and my first web presence actually pre-dated Microsoft’s web presence by 3 or 4 months.
So suffice it to say, I have lived on and loved the internet since it’s baby days.
So knowing all that, what do you suppose would inspire someone like me to cut off my high speed internet service, scour every blog I author for any telltale reference to my real ID, remove it, remove dozens of geo-identifying photos and photo galleries posted by myself from the web and then to gut my lap top and sell it off on ebay? Internet surveillance.
This was not the threat of internet surveillance – this WAS internet surveillance. Someone, somewhere was not only recording every keystroke I wrote, but making overt efforts to log me off of wordpress, turn off my laptop in mid-sentence, jam my connection to the internet, and make it such that the general process of just using my internet connection, my laptop and writing, researching and posting became almost impossible. These weird activities would always commence every time I tried to post an article or essay that dissented with the Obama White House. It was comical at first, then after 3 or 4 weeks, it was not so funny anymore.
The electronic bizarreness described above had been going on for 3 months before I finally just started praying really hard about what was happening. I decided to dump all traces of my online life, and erase my static IP address forever. I didn’t want to just install software that would flip my IP address every few minutes, nope. I wanted a clean dump – final and complete. After I took the appropriate actions, I did not write or post at all for about a month. I continued to pray, to listen, and to think it all over, long and hard.
This is not the Communist Soviet Union in 1972, or Germany in 1938, or even Cuba in 1962. This is the [so-called] United States of America in 2010. WTF? Is the CIA and other connected secret alphabet orgs [NSA, ATF, DOD, FEMA, NCS et al] actually trying to suppress all the loudest intellectual dissent with the Obama White House in America in 2010? One blinks and rubs the eyes, twitching, incredulous. This cannot be happening.
But it actually WAS happening. I had to finally make a decision about my safety, intellectual and personal privacy.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my country and I am no coward. I certainly will not flee a necessary truthful confrontation when my soul knows I am right. But I also have no desire to be on the FED’s Big Brother “secret shit list” for speaking my mind about one of the most incompetent, narcissistic, and inexperienced Presidents in modern times, Barack Obama. My gut tells me that the “secret shit list” they are compiling will not end with his presidency but will carry on for years to come, as Big Gov continues to try to find new ways to “big brotherize” American society along British lines. It’s a very real and current event that is happening and it’s stomach churning.
I eventually solved “the nonstop snooping and surveillance situation” by acquainting myself discreetly with every free public internet portal within a 350 mile radius of my home turf, leisurely frequenting them all in turns as necessary. If this is what it take for me to actually exercise “free speech” online without being tinkered and tampered with, so be it, but it is just one more truthful testimonial that will guarantee Barack Obama’s political doom in 2012.
If I, like millions of others, was angry and irate with the Obama White House last summer in 2009, then this summer 2010 I am a little more cunning, alot more incognito, most definitely blogging on the fly. I am choosing my newest spiritual and political battles carefully, voting out the self centered clueless tax and spend crowd in my home state, NOT marching in the streets with signs, [ that’s a serious no-no if one wants to keep thweir privacy intact ] NOT assuming that Glenn Beck has all the answers, and talking to God more deeply and attentively than ever. The Holy Spirit makes the most excellent BFF, one that will never betray.
We need politically unaligned independent truth tellers in this country. And we need them desperately. It is the “salt of the earth” soul of the average thinking American man and woman whose voice is now needed most desperately. They are not necessarily democrats or republicans, or tea party people: they are THE PEOPLE- the American voice of reason, spiritual sanity, common sense and solid comprehension that self reveals by their existence and actions why this country was founded in the first place. The voices that are needed now do not come from pundits, media stars, celebrity newsmen or TV anchors: they come from the hearts and souls of everyday American people.
I want and need for my voice to be heard, online, offline, in private, and some day, in public. What I don’t want and need is for my every move and keystroke on the internet to be recorded and dissected by the most politically insecure and most aggressively over-reaching White House in modern history. What the Obama White House is doing to free speech in America is un-American. The fact that I even have to type a sentence like that is “cognitive dissonance defined”.
The math equates with perfect dovetail precision here. The equation regarding the Obama White House goes like this: the more politically off-base, out-of-touch, and precipitously suicidal the decisions of the Obama White House become, the more they take it out on average Americans who actually have thoughts and a voice, by gradually, insidiously grinding down on the the free speech of the thinking voting electorate in all it’s forms. It is an equation that reveals with surgical precision the hidden fears, and masked motives of an unpopular President and his “loose cannon” trot along cabinet.
“Veer over here, put out that fire, sprint over to Missouri, put out another fire, huff it back to the White House, give Netanyahu some overdue face time to avoid new speculation, fly back down to the gulf oil spill, try to look concerned, eat seafood poignantly with the small people, publicize the latest spin on the recovery and job stats as being a good thing, sprint over to the next fire and grab a hose.” – Another day in the life of the Obama Presidency observed.
My Forecast: Barack Obama will definitely be a one term President, unless they have something just outright evil, illegal and Orwellian up their sleeve in the coming 2012 presidential elections. Since a general sense of malaise and incompetence is not actually an impeachable offense, I suppose we are stuck with this gleaming thin cardboard narcissist for another two years. Soul numbing to type the words. My newly fluid IP address is no longer static, but my soul is more certain than ever that we have a man in the White House who bodes ill for our country, whether he means well or not, and at this point, all the name calling, and racist finger pointing in the world won’t stop me from speaking my mind about it.
I would opine that rather than the secret internet surveillance department in the Obama White House being so concerned about recording and monitoring every little ditty that I write, research and post on my blogs, they might consider spending some quality time actually intelligently governing the nation. There’s a novel idea.
The twisted priorities of this current Washington D.C. administration stretch the average person’s believability that they care about the future of the country at all. It more seems as if they care most urgently about the next 10 minute or 48 hours of their perceived poll numbers and whether or not they can win it all again in 2012. Win America’s hearts and minds right here, right now, by doing some urgent things RIGHT, and forget winning the hearts and minds of a backward nation half a world away who’s hiding about 150 Taliban, and making fools of our US military. Win at home, here, now, or there won’t be an America left to win in 2012. It will be too divided, frayed and fractured to be recognizable anymore. As for snooping on me, the recent actions of the Obama White House has absolutely guaranteed that my voice will continue to be heard for years and decades to come.

Born and raised on the Texas Gulf Coast, I’ve spent the past few months trying to wrap my head around the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent massive oil spill that is now ruining the coastline from Louisiana to Florida. At times, I have to turn off the news, as the images of dying wildlife hit me deep in my gut.
But now more than ever, this national tragedy has made me grateful for the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. While the oil continues to spew, the media — WordPress.com bloggers included — have been on the frontlines, making sure that Americans and everyone the world over know what is really happening in the Gulf of Mexico.
The oil spill has also made me realize how fragile this freedom is — as the Associated Press reported, “journalists covering the Gulf of Mexico oil spill have been yelled at, kicked off public beaches and islands and threatened with arrest …”
Which is why I’m happy to announce that WordPress.com is a proud supporter of the 1 for All campaign that launches today with the simple goal of raising awareness about the First Amendment. We join more than 1,000 media outlets who have partnered with 1 for All, and we have a special connection to the project — their site is hosted on WordPress.com.

At White House, the Dalai Lama sidesteps trash
When the Dalai Lama went to exit the White House Thursday via the back door, a mound of trash awaited him.
By Linda Feldmann Staff writer / February 19, 2010
Yes, that’s the Dalai Lama leaving the White House Thursday afternoon via the back door – into a mound of trash. His Holiness had just finished his meeting with President Obama and was heading out to the “stakeout area,” where a crush of reporters awaited him. That’s what the Dalai Lama is pointing at.
I was with another, smaller group of reporters and photographers, waiting to accompany the president in his motorcade to Andrews Air Force Base. We knew the Dalai Lama was about to come out, so I had my BlackBerry camera ready.
This just in from White House spokesman Tommy Vietor:
“You reported that the Dalai Lama left the White House out of the back door. That’s just not accurate. He exited through the Palm Room doors. The Dalai Lama said he was pleased by the visit, and I assume he exited through the Palm Room doors because that’s the easiest, quickest, and most convenient way to get to the stakeout location to speak with the press.”
(No comment on His Holiness exiting via the White House trash pile.)
Obama sounds like Elvis Presley in Las Vegas: ‘I love Vegas. Always have.’

Falling victim to their own “carpet Obaming,” it’s NY Mag that missed the teachable moment.
By Chase Hunter on 8.18.2009
This month’s New York magazine cover story: “The Selling and Selling and Selling of the President” reveals some disturbing inside tactics used by the Obama White House to keep USA Big Media continuously flooded with news, new takes on old news, fresh new gushes of Obama-adoration, new twists and turns in Obamanation policy and direction, and in general, the feature lays bare the adroit uses of Big Media news outlets 24-7 by Barack Obama as “Obama-speak” portals.
My take on all of this runs along psychiatric lines. I actually believe this man is psychologically addicted to seeing his own image in the media, so much so that he may actually fear for his own political existence should his image fail to appear in some news media outlet at least 15 to 20 thousand times per hour.
That’s about the frequency of times Obama’s name, or image appears somewhere in USA media outlets EVERY HOUR of every day. Either this is the most insecure and narcissistic elected official that we have ever elected, or this is the most vulgar, obscene and flagrant misuse and abuse of American media portals by any sitting president in US history. I’m leaning toward that the “Obama media fire hose phenomenon” is a little bit of both.
Obama’s non-stop hyperactive “media blitzkrieg” style of governance has cheapened and sullied the office of the President already. It has clearly wearied (and worried) an American public which earlier was certainly willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, even if there were quite a substantial number of potential detracters observing after his inauguration.
———————————— Excerpt —————————————-
A temperate July afternoon, with a slightly more intemperate press corps. Chip Reid, the White House correspondent for CBS News, is quizzing Obama’s press secretary, Robert Gibbs, about a health-care event the administration has arranged in Virginia. Why, he wants to know, is the administration calling this event a “town hall” when it has hand-picked all of the participants and questions? At first the exchange looks as if it’ll last only a few seconds. Then Helen Thomas, the woman with the single-longest institutional memory in the press corps, joins in.
THOMAS: It’s a pattern.
GIBBS: What’s a pattern?
THOMAS: It’s a pattern of controlling the press.
Being hammered daily with magazine covers, newspaper features, TV spots, video clips, radio news and rabid talk radio hosts ranting and pounding their fists about Barack Obama has had the odd overall reverse effect from what was most certainly intended:
We just don’t trust this man anymore.
Anyone who has to go to that extent day in and day out to sell, re-sell, re-position and then re-sell again – his own Presidency and leadership – needs to not be sitting in the White House, but perhaps is more suited to the rigors of maintaining one’s “Holllywood stardom” in the tradition of other Hollywood celebrities like, oh… let’s say, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Mickey Rourke, et al.
When a typical Hollywood movie star needs to “generate some good press” they usually make a new movie. After all, they are actors by trade. When Barack Obama needs to “generate some good press” he just makes an appearance and says a few well chosen words. Acting: it’s not really all that different from “being the President. Ronald Reagan knew all about that.
Don the role. Wag the dog. Play the part. Fill the shoes. Read your lines. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Don’t trip over the teleprompter.
It all is beginning to have that empty hollow ring to it that the aging movie star recognizes on the red carpet one night after way too many years in the limelight. The star is in mid-sentence giving his interview when suddenly the new flavor of the week arrives, steps out of the limosine, and all the reporters run like a hungry herd of coyotes to greet the new starlet, leaving the aging star opining to no one in mid-sentence.
It’s quite remarkable. Barack Obama has managed to wear out his welcome with the American people in less than a year. At this rate, by year’s end the only thing that will have ended up being noteworthy about his first year in office will be the computer screen wallpaper made from the “Obama-as-Joker” street graffiti art which was plastered all over L.A. one recent morning and went internet viral by late afternoon.
If Any Warhol were alive he would be having a field day with all of this. He was, after all, the consummate creator of the silkscreened commercialized plasticized public IMAGE of a human face, that could be elevated to such heights of mass recognition that the actuality of the living human being behind the image would just eventually fade and disappear.
Barack Obama is now in real danger of having this “throw away empty soda can syndrome” happen to him, to his Presidency, to his popularity, and to his first year’s public approval ratings. He has now been “promoted and consumed” ad nausem for more than 2 years nonstop, and frankly we are all sick of it.
My advice would be to get Mr. Hollywood’s face out of the media, and put the man to work, find out if he is actually capable of leading the country in the proper direction and hopefully doing something more constructive than mouthing gaffes, and writing away our national sovereignty, constitution and legislating away our civil liberties.
Here: I’ll help you get started – police brutality is on the rise and it must be checked, halted, and turned around immediately.
There is no reason for a routine traffic stop to end up with a mother of young children being wrestled to the ground and then tasered in front of her own kids. She had broken no laws and had done nothing wrong. These are the kinds of things happening now. They cannot be pushed under the rug. These incidents are ominous and foreboding.
I, for one, want to know why they are happening everywhere now in the US. There has been a clear uptick in this type of routine police brutality since last year. Increasingly, judges just look the other way. Why?
I was one of the people who was very vocal last summer in expressing that I did not want a vapid Hollywood celebrity for a President. Now that we are stuck with one, can his addiction to seeing his own face in the media be cured?
Does Obama the Joker need a psychiatrist? If there is a question of mental illness going around, have a look at the White House. Why does Barack Obama need to be in the media 20,000 times an hour? Are his REAL skills as a leader that weak? Drop the media “prop job” and let’s see if the man can actually stand on his own two feet without being propped up by Big Media 24-7.

This recent action by the Obama administration makes it a potentially legal medical nightmare and Russian Roulette experience for a person to accept vaccination and take a swine flu shot. If you are made sick from the shot, you will have absolutely no legal recourse. I consider this to be a criminal act by the Obama administration. Share and re-post this video and help to expose the criminal complicity of the Obama administration in the current hyped swine flu “pandemic for profit”.
