Obama has once again embarrassed the United States by bowing to another head of state, especially one from a communist country. The guy in the picture is the Premier Wen Jibao of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China. He currently serves as the country’s head of government and leads its cabinet. On top of that, he holds membership in the 16th and 17th Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China as the 3rd ranking member out of nine.
There you go, Obama does it again. I will repeat again – No US president should EVER bow to anyone. NEVER !!
Here is another chapter of “Uncle Sam
As mentioned last Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled his destructive 2,074 page healthcare bill that will only make the situation worse regarding healthcare in America. Sen. Reid is proposing in his junk of a healthcare bill a 5% tax on elective cosmetic surgery. Nailing those who want breast implants, liposuction, Botox, etc. with this tax will provide $5 billion towards covering the over $900 billion healthcare will cost us. Where did you think these crazy Democrats were going to pull out the money to pay for this? Obama’s stash? This is just the beginning of all the taxes we will be hit with in the coming months and years. This particular tax, if approved, will commence in January 1, 2010. Sit back and watch the show. The popcorn for now is free until Obama and his cronies take over the movie industry.
Below is the text that appears within the bill Sen. Harry Reid has proposed:
SEC. 9017. EXCISE TAX ON ELECTIVE COSMETIC MEDICAL PROCEDURES.
(a) IN GENERAL.-Subtitle D of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended by this Act, is amended by adding at the end the following new chapter:

On September 16, 2009, Gen. Stanley McChrsytal, whom President Obama selected to guide the U.S. to victory in Afghanistan, requested an additional 40,000 troops to avoid failure. As of today, Obama has not yet decided whether he will send more troops to support and back-up those currently there struggling to keep up with the Taliban. More than 90 troops have died since Gen. McChrystal put in his request. It was announced Friday that Obama will not make a decision until after Thanksgiving . I hope that on Thanksgiving he gives thanks to all the men and women who are fighting and are risking their lives for this great country.
Get with the program President Obama !! How much longer will you need to decided whether our troops deserve help or not? Does everyone remember when the Bush administration did not send immediate help to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and how the media jumped all over him? Where is the media now? It has been over two months since the request was made. Slowly, the media is becoming “government run” because never is Obama held accountable or questioned unless it occurs on Foxnews. What a shame !!
On the left hand side of my blog is a countdown showing how much time has elapsed since Gen. McChrystal requested more troops. Time is ticking President Obama and troops need more help. When will you care?
Now it’s the Senate’s turn to reveal a healthcare bill that will tell you to “look one way while their other hand is taking your wallet.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) healthcare bill made its debut yesterday at a whopping 2,074 pages. As expected, it is full of and more . As was the case with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bill, there will be a lot of outrageous demands made in the “bill”, but there a couple of things that stands out right away. What are they? On page 120, line 13, the plan would require that at least one insurance plan offered in the Exchange (where insurances will be offered to the public to be purchased) covers abortions.
Let’s see how you like this one. On page 122, line 11, section 1303 under the title “Actuarial Value of Optional Service Coverage”, states that the government run socialist healthcare will charge every enrollee in the plan a monthly abortion premium paid directly to the U.S. Treasury account. What? Exactly what you read !! The Obama socialist healthcare plan will force you, whether you believe in abortions or not, to fund abortion services. Incredible !! Section 1303 (a)(2)(C) mentions that the Health Benefits Commissioner must charge at a minimum $1 per enrollee per month.
It is disgusting that a government run healthcare plan in the U.S. will force those who purchase a plan to pay for the murder of defenseless babies. Incredible !!
There is a pro-life amendment called Stupak/Pitt passed by the House by a vote of 240-194 on November 7, 2009. Surprisingly, the vote was bi-partisan. Out of the 240 that voted in favor of the bill, 64 were Democrats. The amendment combines current law by prohibiting federal funding of elective abortions under any government-run plan or plans available under the Exchange. The bill that Harry Reid has put forth rejects the bipartisan Stupak/Pitts amendment and enforces the American people to pay for abortions.
Healthcare reform should be an opportunity to save lives, not end them.
A couple of days ago, I posted a picture showing President Obama NOT saluting the flag.
This picture illustrates President Barack Obama at a ceremony in which a wreath was laid at the tomb of the unknown soldier in Moscow, Russia on July 6, 2009. The photo wants to give the impression that Obama is saluting the American flag, but he is doing the contrary.
The picture below shows what Obama is REALLY doing – saluting the Russian flag. Why do I say that? Well you can see a Russian soldier standing at attention saluting. We can all agree that he is not saluting an American flag, right? Would Russia play America’s National Anthem in a Russian cemetery while laying a wreath? I highly doubt it. This is just another illustration of how our President won’t salute OUR flag, but will travel half way around the world and salute another countries flag. And not just any country, but one that had missiles in Cuba pointed at the U.S.
This picture was taken on September 16, 2007 at an event in Indianola, Iowa. At the event, 6 Democratic presidential candidates appeared.
Now, let’s talk about Obama shows weakness in front of head of states by bowing to them.
This picture was taken when Obama visited Saudi Arabia on April 9, 2009. Obama BOWED to King Abdullah when he met him. The King is a financier of terrorist throughout the world and OUR president is going to bow to him as a sign of submission? Not convinced it is a bow Obama did, take a look at the video:
What a joke !!
This last picture was taken this week in Japan when he met with Emperor Akihito, son of Emperor Hirohito. Who was Hirohito? He was Japan’s emperor during Pearl Harbor and depending where you get your information, many believe he authorized the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Many believe that Obama showed excellent etiquette when he bowed to the emperor, but many back in the U.S., including current and former government officials expressed displeasure for the act. I don’t care who it is the president is meeting, but he should not bow to anyone. He is the President of the United States of America, the greatest nation in the universe. Under no circumstance should Obama have bowed to the emperor of Japan nor the King of Saudi Arabia. It is disgusting how Obama is desecrating the Oval Office with his socialist agenda or mentality. May God help us !!
I will leave you with this picture today and let it sink into your mind throughout the day. Let me know in the comments section what is wrong with this picture. This is what we have for President of the United States of America. The picture below was taken on May 25, 2009 at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
On tomorrow’s post, I will show you more pictures that will discourage you further. I believe it is necessary to show everyone this picture and the one’s tomorrow because we need to wake-up and realize that Obama’s agenda involves the U.S., but not in the way Our Founding Fathers had in mind.
May 25, 2009 – Memorial Day – Arlington National Cemetery
Happy Friday the 13th !! Now that we got the pleasantries out of the way, let’s get down to business.
Later today, Attorney General Eric Holder will announce that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the September 11 terrorist attacks, along with 4 others also involved in the attacks, will be put on trial in New York City. In past months, authorities have squashed another potential terrorist attack in the city. Now with this circus coming to New York, Homeland Security should raise the level to RED.
And just when you thought this story couldn’t get worse. The White House plans to try these terrorists in civilian courts with a criminal trial. That means that they will get the right to a fair trial, the right to a taxpayer funded attorney, the right to review all evidence against him including the classified intelligence material, the right to exclude evidence against him, including the information collected through enhanced interrogation techniques. How do you like that? With the access to possible classified material, the percentage of this information leaked through his lawyer to other terrorists increases drastically. We have had that scenario play out already. It is incredible that someone who masterminded the murder of thousands of people would have the right to get a trial like any other American. How despicable is it that the terrorist who killed thousands on 9/11 is going to have a lawyer funded by the families of those he killed? Like I have said before, everyday Obama proves why he is incompetent to serve as our Commander in Chief. Is this the doing of Barack Obama trying to appease the Muslim world and prove to them that the evil Western Empire came be nice to radical Muslims? I think so.
Wait, it gets a bit worse. The administration will also announce later today that Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, alleged to have planned the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, will get a military tribunal trial. So the terrorist who blows up New York gets to have a trial with the same rights as every American is entitled to, but the one who blew-up soldiers get a military tribunal. I don’t get it? Mohammed should never step on U.S. soil, yet Obama is under the impression that a jury in New York is going to find him guilty. Don’t be so sure Mr. President because Mohammed can easily claim that he did not receive a fair trial. Don’t be surprised if it back fires.
