EXCERPT

Last night at the invitation of my friend Lt. Col. Marc Breslow I was honored to say a few words at the Holiday Dining Out of the California State Military Reserve.  At my table was Brigadier General Jack Hagan who early on mentioned to me that the older gentleman across the way was very special indeed, and as soon as I saw the Medal of Honor ribbon around Tibor Rubin’s neck I knew why, but I didn’t know the story behind Mr. Rubin’s honor.

As much as the music and the festivities allowed, I got a few details out of Mr. Rubin.  He had survived 14 months as a teenager in the Mauthausen concentration camp in Austria,

http://www.army.mil/medalofhonor/rubin/profile/index.html

and as soon as he got to America, tried and eventually succeeded in enlisting in the Army as a way of saying thank you to the country that had liberated him.  He was captured in North Korea and made a POW for 30 months, during which time he repeatedly broke out of and returned back into the camp with food for his fellow POWs.  His Medal of Honor citation tells the rest of the story.

General Hagan summarized it for the crowd of military professionals and their spouses and dates who volunteer hundreds of hours every year to support the California National Guard, and when the general concluded with a simple statement that he wasn’t conveying niceties, just the truth about Mr. Rubin, a prolonged standing ovation ensured: Selfless public servants honoring a courageous, selfless soldier.

I have heard of many astonishing and inspiring stories of how heroes survived various hells.  I have never heard of someone surviving both a Nazi concentration camp and a North Korean prisoner of war camp, and not merely surviving, but demonstrating courage of the highest order in so doing.

    “Buena Park Pastor Wiley Drake Believes He Still Has a Prayer of Unseating Barack Obama” By MATT COKER

    http://www.ocweekly.com/2008-12-18/news/wiley-drake-barack-obama/

    EXCERPT

    MC: There are also claims that the Obama campaign released different versions of the Hawaiian birth certificate—the first without an official seal, the second with the seal stamped in the wrong place and so on. What do you know about that?

    WD: As far as the birth certificate, yeah, there are a lot of questions. There is no seal, then they sent another one in and didn’t have the seal in the right place. What’s that all about? A lot of this stuff is discussed on Berg’s site, ObamaCrimes.com.

    http://www.obamacrimes.com/

    MC: Speaking of websites, here’s what FactCheck.org

    http://www.factcheck.org/

    has said on the matter: “FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all the requirements from the State Department for providing U.S. citizenship.” Did you know that?

    WD: Yeah. But, again, they only saw what Obama put on his website. Interestingly enough, FactCheck.org was owned by a company for which Barack served on its board of directors.

    MC: That’s convenient.

    WD: Makes you wanna go hmmm. The more we dig, the more we find, so we finally decided let’s take it to court and let the courts decide. I made a statement that, uh, if Barack Hussein Obama can prove he is a bona-fide, constitutional, natural-born candidate, as one of the co-founders of the Presidential Prayer Team and the former second vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention, I will lead people to pray for him.

    MC: Well, that’s nice of you.

    WD: Yeah, everybody wants to make it about race, to make it about politics. Another thing is Philip Berg, who brought the first case, was chairman of the Democratic Party in Pennsylvania for many years. He is not a fly-by-night guy. He’s an old man; he’s been around forever on the Democrat’s Central Committee. Also, he was a deputy district attorney for years. This wasn’t like he was a Republican going after a Democrat.

    MC: That’s very interesting. Did you know that back when Hillary Clinton was campaigning against Obama, a blogger supporting her had to admit to having looked through Honolulu Advertiser back issues and discovering a birth announcement in the Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961, edition for a son born Aug. 4, 1961, to Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama of 6085 Kalanianole Hwy.? So her argument is why would someone plant a fake announcement in a newspaper in 1961? It’s not like someone back then knew this baby would some day run for president.

    WD: Well, I had not heard that. Again, why would someone go to that degree? But there have also been a lot of other things that are very unusual.

    MC: Do you know who Joseph Farah is, the founder of WorldNetDaily.com?

    http://www.worldnetdaily.com/

    WD: Oh, yes, Joe’s a good friend of mine.

    MC: Joe said that even without a favorable Supreme Court ruling to the allegations, the native-born issue will haunt Obama’s entire presidency much like the Monica Lewinsky controversy dogged the rest of Bill Clinton’s presidency.

    WD: Well, I’d agree with that except it will be even more so than the Lewinsky thing. I think it will dog him because one of our attorneys, Gary Kreep [of the United Justice Foundation] said we will do everything we can to fight this battle. If we win this case, we will keep him out of the White House. If we lose, Gary and his committee of lawyers, and many of us are supportive of this, if Mr. Obama is indeed inaugurated, we will file a lawsuit against the inauguration for being illegal and against the chief justice of the Supreme Court for swearing in a usurper. And then, typically on the first day of office, the president signs a bunch of bills. Every bill or document he signs, we will file a separate lawsuit. For every decision he makes, it’s gonna to be tied up in court.

    Apparently, according to the docket

    http://origin.www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/08-570.htm

    for Philip Berg’s case at the U.S. Supreme Court, the application for an injunction pending disposition of the petition for certiorari has been “referred to the Court” by Justice Antonin Scalia, with a conference scheduled for Friday, January 16, 2009.

    “I’m certainly encouraged,” Berg told America’s Right. “I’m encouraged because it is still there.”

    If the application for injunction truly is to be considered in conference by all nine Supreme Court Justices, it took a roundabout way to get there. It was filed and denied by Justice David Souter and refiled and once again denied by Justice Anthony Kennedy before making its way to Scalia’s lap.

    Bruce,

    “AC, whatever are you going to do when the Supreme Court puts this absurdity to rest?”

    In case you didn’t notice, I said I didn’t see this going anywhere. Still, I find it interesting that it has made it as far as it has. For the life of me I can’t understand why Obama just didn’t request an official copy with a seal from Hawaii and put the whole thing to rest instead of spending millions to block these cases on procedural grounds.

    I don’t think these cases have merit, but Obama’s reaction to them boggles the mind.

    OBAMA, HALF-SISTER & HAWAII OFFICALS FALSIFY MADELYN DUNHAM DEATH RECORDS!

    On October 21, 2008 Barack Obama announced that he would be suspending his campaign after a rally in Indianapolis on Thursday morning, October 23, 2008 to fly to Hawaii to visit with his “gravely ill grandmother.” Barack Obama further stated that Madelyn L. Dunham had recently been hospitalized and was back at home after suffering a broken hip. Obama made it clear on October 22, 2008 that there “will be absolutely no video or photo ops during my upcoming visit with my ailing grandmother,” and “I do not expect my grandmother to make it to election day.”

    On Friday October 24, 2008 Michelle Obama during a campaign rally for her husband claimed that “I spoke with tutu last night and she is strong and in good health.”

    On Friday October 24, 2008 I placed two calls to the home of Madelyn Dunham, in one of those calls I spoke with Obama half-sister Maya Ng http://larrysinclair-0926.blogspot.com/2008/10/i-just-spoke-with-senator-obamas-sister.html where Maya claimed Mrs. Dunham could not talk.

    On November 3, 2008 both the news media and Barack Obama announced that Madelyn L. Dunham had passed away on that date. Mrs. Dunham was to have celebrated her 89th birthday on the Sunday following Barack Obama’s visit, yet no one, not even Barack Obama stopped to wish his “gravely ill” grandmother a Happy Birthday.

    After first announcing that Madelyn Dunham had passed away in her sleep on November 3, 2008 (conveniently the day before election day for the sympathy vote) it was reported by Hawaii officials and then by Obama half-sister Maya Ng that Mrs. Dunham had in fact passed away on November 2, 2008. Both reports it turns out are false and it has been reported that Maya Ng and Hawaii officials knowingly and intentionally falsified death records of Madelyn L. Dunham who had actually died prior to Barack Obama arriving on Thursday October 23, 2008 for his claimed visit.

    According to sources employed in the coroner’s office Madelyn Dunham died on October 21, 2008 and was cremated on Friday October 24, 2008. It is further claimed that the death records of Madelyn L Dunham were falsified at the direct and specific request of Barack Obama and Maya Ng.

    I have forwarded a letter to the Hawaii Attorney Generals office requesting and investigation and forwarded the information received regarding the falsifying of the death and cremation records of Madelyn L Dunham. If this information is factual Barack Obama has demonstrated his total disregard for any life, including the life of the woman who made it possible for him to be a spoiled, drug using, closet bi/gay fraud. Furthermore the fact that Michelle Obama knew and assisted in concealing this fraud along with the US Secret Service assigned to protect Barack Obama makes them conspirators to this crime.

    Today Barack Obama participated in the scattering of the ashes of Madelyn L Dunham who he used and exploited.

    I have one thing to say Barack, not everyone is willing to cover for your lies and crimes. Now lets see if the Hawaii Attorney General is willing to do their job or if that office is going to simply look the other way.

    MICHELLE OBAMA ON “COURT ORDERED INACTIVE STATUS”

    UPDATE: What was little Michelle from the Southside of Chicago doing in 1993?

    1993: Public Allies Chicago with 30 Allies is launched by founding Executive Director Michelle Obama. President Clinton names Public Allies a model for national service. First Lady Hilary Clinton hosts Rose Garden reception for Public Allies at the White House.
    Say what? Michelle and Hillary go back that far?

    Shmoo finds more:

    In 1992 Michelle Obama left her job at Sidley Austin to launch a career in public service, serving as an assistant to Mayor Daley and then as the assistant commissioner of planning and development for the City of Chicago.
    (ask yourself how did a 2-3 year attorney…just wound up being Mayor Daleys “assistant” just like that…and what did she do as an “assistant” what does that even mean when you are a harvard trained attorney?)

    Too close for comfort. Coincidental?

    Bernardine Dohrn, Bill ayers wife was at Sidley Austin— a law firm in Chicago from From 1984 to 1988. Dohrn was employed by the law firm Sidley Austin although her criminal record has prevented her from being admitted to either the New York or Illinois bar. (source: wikipedia)

    Dr. Kate at TexasDarlin blog writes a letter to Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah:

    http://texasdarlin.wordpress.com/2008/12/23/merry-christmas-open-thread/

    drkate

    Merry Christmas to all, Happy Hannukah, peace and good will to everyone everywhere. Christmas plans today were snowed in–overnight another 12 inches of the beautiful quiet powder fell, ice chunks floating in the river. The eagles soared again today.

    Everytime I have written a piece for this blog, or have been thinking intensely about our country, those eagles have graced the sky above me; from my desk I hear their arrival on the wind.

    So today, when those eagles flew, I wrote another letter–to Orrin Hatch! I know, I know. “Get a life”…and ‘you really must be desperate’….I guess that is what snow and eagles and Christmas day do to me!

    Excerpts below.

    I am motivated to write to you as a result of something I wrote in my own letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts, attached for your information, regarding Mr. Obama’s eligibility, although I was not aware of it at the time. In the latter part of the letter, I asked the Chief Justice this:

    “However this Honorable Court rules on any of these cases, please do not leave Americans with silence. Our Constitution seems to be hanging by a thread.”

    After I wrote and sent the letter, the phrase “our constitution seems to be hanging by a thread” jogged my memory, and I recalled reading somewhere that “at a certain moment in our country’s growth, ‘the constitution would be hanging by a thread’, and that the Mormon Elders would have a role in stepping in to save the Constitution”. Respectfully and in all seriousness, I am wondering if this is that time.

    After describing the citizenship concerns, the scheduled Supreme Court conferences on Jan 9th and 16th, and describing the role of Congress on Jan 8th, I said:

    Respectfully, I do not know if you are of the Mormon faith but do know that many of your constituents are. I am respectfully asking if this issue, as presented here and in the attached materials, rises to the level of consultation with your constituents who are the Elders in the Mormon Church. And if it does, would you be so kind as to present or pass along this information to them for their evaluation?

    This is not a partisan request for your intervention, although I can appreciate that the position of both parties in Congress would make such an ‘eligibility check’ an unpopular request with potential negative consequences. But it would be a profile in courage to be sure that we preserve, protect, defend, and use our Constitution to verify the eligibility of the President-Elect and to usher in a new administration.

    I, as well as many others, will be satisfied if this review of eligibility produces an eligible President-elect Obama. If the review produces an ineligible Obama, then I and many others will be satisfied with the use of the 12th and 20th Amendments to the Constitution to choose an eligible President.

    Often I thought that Obama’s elaborate staging was designed for a foreign audience, not so much Americans. I wonder today if he is setting us up for attack if he is found ineligible and forced to step down. Therein is the ‘fear’ I have that Obama could be ‘holding America hostage’. What could be the purpose of a fake presidential seal, the fake replica of half air force one, his removal of the US flag on his campaign plane, his behavior at ground zero, his stuff about the flag pin and national anthem, the ‘office of the president elect’? Appealing to foreign audiences with symbols, faking that he is already the president.

It scared the patooty out of me. I’ll stick with hurricanes, at least you can get our of Dodge if you need to.

    being a former Marine myself, I know if he had shown up for X-Mas dinner and decided not to eat with us, Iwould have been insulted and pissed. Also, you have to realize, these were the hand picked servicemen. They were most likely selected based on their opinion of him. My guess is they were hard pressed to find enough to fill the room. 😉

  28. Tenacity Says:

    I can’t say that this is what Jesus would do (render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s), but my dad taught me a philosophy that I have always used: “When someone needs the shirt off your back, take it off and give it to them. When someone tries to steal it, burn it first.” Well, Obama and the federal government falls into the latter category. I will support only candidates that I believe will shrink the federal government, save the military, intelligence (against terrorism) and border security. All other issues can better be dealt with on a local level and for the most part, by local communities. Further, anyone that believes the Constitution should change with social/cultural changes is my enemy and the enemy of the state. To me, the flag represents the country of my fathers, not the country of the Tri-lateral Commission, World Bank (oil bourse) or New World Order. Hold the banner high (upside down if you will), but do not become apathetic or so cynical that you become ineffective as a patriot. We need people to stand up with courage, not withdraw in self pity allowing tyranny to reign.

    I do not condone the likes of the black panthers, but you have to respect their courage. Do you know how many Black Panthers it took to shut down the whole City of New York…just 80. 80 people committed to their cause. We need that kind of determination.

    If you were saying that they were hard pressed to find supporters of Bush within the military, you would be wrong.

    Service Members support the office he holds more than the man himself but in today’s military, there are still PLENTY that support Bush (the man).

    Dude don’t give up on the flag. I think you’re former military. Remember Red=Blood White=Purity Blue=Valor and it don’t matter how much the idiots try to make it a racist or oppressive symbol – The flag is a symbol of extreme sacrifice and I am proud of it.

    It don’t matter if the domestic terrorist arse Ayres stands on it with an arrogant smug look on his evil face. Doesn’t matter if M0 thinks we’re a bunch of redneck racist, even though her and her husband and kids have enjoyed every fortune the flag stands for. Doesn’t matter if Hanoi Jane got her rocks off behind an enemy AA gun while our Airforce was in the air. She enjoys and uses the 1st Ammendment for perverse and profane purposes but none the less the flag is a symbol of the freedom guaranteed to these American hating scum and to the rest who respect it and actually did our part so we all can be free.

    Just a few examples of disrespect and there are thousands more. They can stand on it, curse it and burn it all they want but the symbolism is so much bigger than their attempts to waste it and what it stands for. There will always be a hundred American flags to take the place of everyone that is destroyed by the ememies of freedom.

    I will fly my flag until such a day I’m no longer here to put it up by my driveway. If it ever comes a time when our flag is outlawed, then I will become an outlaw.

    “Who will govern the governors?” There is only one force in the nation that can be depended upon to keep the government pure and the governors honest, and that is the people themselves. They alone, if well informed, are capable of preventing the corruption of power, and of restoring the nation to its rightful course if it should go astray. They alone are the safest depository of the ultimate powers of government. –Thomas Jefferson

    No words to add. But it does give one a whole lot to think about. That we the people need to stand together and uphold our constitution.

    good read on more media Dsucking. She goes over the account of the media heckling of Bush and his workout schedule and the new found appreciation for it when Danglebarry does it. I’d love to line up, and slap every single journalist i can find
