Obama’s ‘FDR’ plan exposed?

Many were left to ponder what Barack Obama meant when he used his Democratic National Convention speech last week to call for “the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one.”

Two bestselling authors believe they may have solved that puzzle by uncovering progressive plans for Obama’s second term that may include the re-creation of a 21st century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration as part of a massive government-funded jobs program.

During his DNC speech, Obama declared: “It will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. It will require common effort, shared responsibility, and the kind of bold, persistent experimentation that Franklin Roosevelt pursued during the only crisis worse than this one.”

The president did not specify which possible methods of “experimentation” he had in mind, but in the recently released book “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott document second term plans that come right from FDR’s playbook, most prominently an updated version of the WPA within the Department of Labor.

“Fool Me Twice” documents how progressive groups tied to the White House back the 2011 21st Century Works Progress Administration Act. The legislation would “immediately put Americans to work rebuilding our nation and strengthening our communities,” according to its literature.

The 21st century reincarnation of Roosevelt’s WPA would operate under the auspices of a Works Progress Administration created within the Department of Labor and headed by the secretary of labor.

U.N. triggers Plan B on global gun control

Americans who thought the United Nations’ gun-grabbing agenda collapsed with the adjournment of the Small Arms Treaty meetings in July are in for a surprise.

Enter the U.N. Programme Against Small Arms, an administrative program that National Association for Gun Rights Executive Vice President Dudley Brown says wouldn’t require a vote in Congress to be enacted, but has so far flown under the radar of most gun-rights groups.

A U.N. conference called the “Second United Nations Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects) that concluded this past week drafted a 2012 report that says the body maintains its commitment eliminate small arms trade, despite the July setback.

“In implementing the Programme of Action at the national level,” the report said, “States, where they have not yet done so, undertake: To support the development and implementation of adequate laws, regulations and administrative procedures to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, including diversion of small arms and light weapons to unauthorized recipients.

“To establish or strengthen, as appropriate,” the report continued, “national coordination mechanisms to improve coordination among governmental agencies, in particular among law enforcement, national border and customs control agencies, and arms transfer licensing authorities, to implement the Programme of Action.

“This should include aspects of the illicit manufacture, control, trafficking, circulation, brokering and trade, as well as tracing, finance, collection and destruction of small arms and light weapons,” the report concluded.

The full scope of what the program intends to accomplish are explained on the U.N. Office for Disarmament Affairs web site.

Will THIS devious group steal your vote?

A powerful group focused on “racial justice” – with leaders who have personally donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Obama campaign and the DNC – is leading the leftist-driven charge to weaken voter ID laws in key states before the November election.

The Advancement Project describes itself as a “multi-racial civil rights organization” that works “‘on the ground’ helping organized communities of color dismantle and reform the unjust and inequitable policies that undermine the promise of democracy.” The organization states, ” Simultaneously, we have aggressively sought and seized opportunities to promote this approach to racial justice.”

It was founded in 1999 and has offices in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

Massive assault on voter ID laws

Just last week, a federal court struck down a Texas law requiring voters to present a government-issued photo ID before casting a ballot. According to the organization website, “Advancement Project intervened as defendants in this federal litigation in support of the Department of Justice’s position that Texas’ Photo ID law is racially retrogressive and should be denied preclearance under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.”

Prior to the ruling, on Sept. 13, 2011, the Advancement Project sent a letter to the Justice Department, calling on the Civil Rights Division to reject the voter ID law. It also delivered a petition of 120,000 signatures demanding the department deny pre-clearance of Texas’ law.

And on Aug. 27, U.S. District Judge Algenon Marbley struck down Ohio’s “wrong precinct” law.

“In the lawsuit, brought on the behalf of several labor and community organizations, attorneys from Advancement Project and Service Employees International Union argued that Ohio’s law unconstitutionally penalizes thousands of voters for poll worker errors that disproportionately impacted African Americans,” the Advancement Project stated on its website.

Hummer Saves Children

The “environmentally friendly” have targeted Hummers for years. The gas-guzzling vehicles are too loud, use too much energy, and produce too many emissions– but they also make pretty effective roadblocks.

At least that’s what Darrell Krushelnicki of Alberta, Canada thought last month after seeing a man speeding towards a group of children in a crosswalk.

After he realized there was a strong possibility of disaster, Krushelnicki risked his life by pulling his 2006 Hummer in front of the speeding car, which was estimated to be going roughly 50 mph in a 30 mph zone.

“I could just see…I just had the feeling that something bad was going to happen if something wasn’t [done] to stop that vehicle,” he explained. “There was really no one else, I just had to do it. I had to do what I did.”

Islamic paedophiles marrying child brides in secret

British Muslim mosque leaders are carrying out secret marriages with child brides as long as their parents keep it secret and the girls don’t make a public stink about it. In an undercover investigation, a Shi’te mosque leader agreed to marry a 12-year-old girl.

UK DAILY MAIL (H/T Maria) A Sunday Times journalist visited the Husaini Islamic Centre in Peterborough – the ‘first Shi’te mosque in the whole of Europe’ – posing as the father of a 12-year-old girl. According to the newspaper, the reporter was told by Imam Mohamed Kassamali that ‘under sharia [Islamic law] there is no problem’ in marrying a 12-year-old.

Joe Biden hits on Real Man’s Girlfriend, Lucky to still have his teeth

CDC’s zombie apocalypse propaganda

The CDC has released a new zombie apocalypse preparedness campaign, and at one level, it almost begins to be useful. The “Preparedness 101 Zombie Apocalypse” novella is viewable online, connecting with the public through a pop culture theme — zombies — that has experienced a strong resurgence over the last few years.

The zombie novella even offers a small taste of some realistic, practical advice. Early in the novella, for example, a concerned citizen clicks on the CDC’s preparedness website and prints out a list of items needed to create an emergency preparedness kit. Those items include:

Water, food, flashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra batteries, first aid kit, medications and medical items, multi-purpose tool, sanitation and personal hygiene items, copies of personal documents, cell phone with chargers, family and emergency contact information, extra cash, emergency blanket, map(s) of the area, medical supplies (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, cane), baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), games and activities for children, pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl), extra set of car keys and house keys, manual can opener (http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/images/zombie/Alt_Text_for_Graphic_Novella.pd…)

There’s only one problem with this list: There’s nothing in it for self defense against the zombies.

Obama Pulls a Biden: ‘Three Proud Words: Made in the USA’

Like every president, Barack Obama has his generally-accepted strengths and weaknesses.

His speech-giving ability is, without a doubt, one of his greatest assets, but in Florida over the weekend the man made an error almost identical to one made earlier by Vice President Joe Biden.

Needless to say, public speaking is not one of Joe Biden’s greatest strengths.

Speaking to a roaring crowd, the president said that American manufacturers are making products that we can sell around the world, stamped with “three proud words.”

What are they? The president continued, separating each word for emphasis: “Made in the USA.”

Flashback: Gallup Had Carter Up 4 Points Over Ronald Reagan in September 1980

Gallup polling today put Obama ahead of Mitt Romney by 4 points after the godless DNC Convention.

Back in 1980 Gallup had Jimmy Carter up over Ronald Reagan by 4 points in mid to late September… And, Carter was up 8 points in October. In fact there was a published Gallup poll showing Carter up six among likely voters in a poll conducted Oct. 24 to 27.

Democrats Ran Their Convention Like They Run the Country: At a Deficit

On Friday, Bloomberg News reported another embarrassing fact about the recently completed Democratic National Convention: it operated at a $15 million deficit.

In a move certain to raise eyebrows at the Federal Election Commission, $10 million of that deficit was covered by a temporary line of credit from Duke Energy Corporation. Even with that borrowed $10 million, the DNC still owes vendors $5 million, and it doesn’t have the cash to pay them:

Democrats ended their convention in Charlotte $5 million short of their budget even after being forced to draw down a $10 million line of credit from Duke Energy Corp. (DUK), according to a Democratic Party fundraiser.

That will leave a $15 million bill that eventually will have to be paid by President Barack Obama’s campaign or the Democratic National Committee, according to the fundraiser, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

The Charlotte Host Committee ended the convention with more than $5 million in immediate obligations and may require a direct cash infusion from the Obama campaign to pay vendors, said the fundraiser.

The $10 million line of credit to Duke Energy will need to be repaid next year, said a second person familiar with the matter, who also spoke on condition of anonymity. Duke Energy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jim Rogers is co-chairman of the host committee.

Those debts could siphon off advertising money in the campaign’s final months, as Democrats face a cash disadvantage.
