Obama Shatters Spending Record for First-Year Presidents

FOXNews.com

The federal government spent $3.5 trillion during President Obama's first year in office. This far exceeds the spending for any other first-year president.

President Obama has shattered the budget record for first-year presidents -- spending nearly double what his predecessor did when he came into office and far exceeding the first-year tabs for any other U.S. president in history.

In fiscal 2009 the federal government spent $3.52 trillion -- $2.8 trillion in 2000 dollars, which sets a benchmark for comparison. That fiscal year covered the last three-and-a-half months of George W. Bush's term and the first eight-and-a-half months of Obama's.

That price tag came with a $1.4 trillion deficit, nearly $1 trillion more than last year. The overall budget was about a half-trillion more than Bush's for 2008, his final full fiscal year in office.

That's a big increase. But compared with other presidents' first years in office, Obama is running circles around them.

Bush spent $1.8 trillion in 2001, according to government budget figures that have been adjusted for inflation based on 2000 dollars. Using the same formula, former President Bill Clinton spent $1.6 trillion in 1993.

The last president to clock in under $1 trillion was Gerald Ford, who logged a $982 billion budget in 1975. Post-war Dwight Eisenhower even brought Uncle Sam's tab down to $556 billion in his first year, 1953.

Obama's first-year budget, adjusted for inflation, is about five times that. His 2009 budget is also close to 21 percent of that for Clinton's eight years in office -- Clinton's spending added up to $13.5 trillion over his two full terms. Bush spent $16.8 trillion from 2001-2008.

ClimateGate: We knew it was a hoax, now there’s proof! The scientists are liars!!!

The earth is not flat as the ‘scientists’ insist!!! What does this mean when the ‘seekers of the truth’ fake evidence? Why would they do it? In the case of the ‘flat earth’ it was religion which makes one wonder, is it religion now? I believe the answer is yes…a new green religion where humans do not have dominion. AlGoreGreenMessiah

What a perversion;

very much like in the Book of Romans:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, WHEN THEY KNEW GOD, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen” (Romans 1: 18-25).

Brit SEC DEF criticises Barack Obama over Afghanistan - Telegraph

Bob Ainsworth, the defence secretary, has blamed Barack Obama and the United States for the decline in British public support for the war in Afghanistan.

Mr Ainsworth took the unprecedented step of publicly criticising the US President and his delays in sending more troops to bolster the mission against the Taliban.

A “period of hiatus” in Washington - and a lack of clear direction - had made it harder for ministers to persuade the British public to go on backing the Afghan mission in the face of a rising death toll, he said. More...

“Former Political Insider Discovers The Shocking Truth About A Vicious New Plan
To Institute Martial Law...
And Reveals How To Get Out Of Harms Way
Before Globalists Pull The Trigger”

September 2, 2009
Washington, D.C.


Dear Fellow Citizen,

A year ago I had what I thought was the best job in the world. I was a political advisor to a very powerful elected official in a pretty safe district. I not only had an insider’s perspective on how legislation was really passed, I was even able to tweak laws to favor our constituents. I didn’t think there was anything wrong with what I was doing, after all, we were elected by the people and they wanted us to deliver for them.

One cold, snowy January evening I was working late and ran across a report I probably never should have seen... the Army’s 2008 Modernization Strategy report, which predicted near constant conflicts in the future, both overseas and at home. An entire Command (NorthCom) had been created to deal with ‘natural or man-made’ emergencies, consisting primarily of battle-hardened soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan who could “use some of the skills they acquired in the war zone" to deal with "civil unrest and crowd control” here... in the United States!

The More of The Report I Read... The Clearer It Became.

Martial Law - My stomach turned at the thought of the military being used in a domestic capacity.

I had served in the military like millions of other American veterans, and my stomach turned at the thought of the military being used in a domestic capacity.

One of the first things you used to learn in boot camp is the Posse Comitatus Act, which was created 200 years ago to make sure the military was never used against the citizens. But, for all practical purposes, this law has now been completely negated through Executive Orders issued by Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama(1).

The more of the report I read, the clearer it became that over many years the bureaucrats in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike - were carefully maneuvering for an eventual silent coup... one that would never make headlines but would result in the transfer of power from the American people to a secret group of wealthy bankers who already had everything they wanted... except total power.

Rom Houben: Patient trapped in a 23-year 'coma' was conscious all along | Mail Online

'I screamed, but there was nothing to hear': Man trapped in 23-year 'coma' reveals horror of being unable to tell doctors he was conscious

By Allan Hall
Last updated at 2:58 PM on 23rd November 2009

A car crash victim has spoken of the horror he endured for 23 years after he was misdiagnosed as being in a coma when he was conscious the whole time.

Rom Houben, trapped in his paralysed body after a car crash, described his real-life nightmare as he screamed to doctors that he could hear them - but could make no sound.

'I screamed, but there was nothing to hear,' said Mr Houben, now 46, who doctors thought was in a persistent vegatative state.

'I dreamed myself away,' he added, tapping his tale out with the aid of a computer.

'I dreamed myself away': Rom Houben, now 46, has told of the nightmare of being trapped in a paralysed body, unable to tell doctors that he was awake, for 23 years

'I dreamed myself away': Rom Houben, now 46, has told of the nightmare of being trapped in a paralysed body, unable to tell doctors that he was awake, for 23 years

Doctors used a range of coma tests before reluctantly concluding that his consciousness was 'extinct'.

But three years ago, new hi-tech scans showed his brain was still functioning almost completely normally.

Mr Houben described the moment as 'my second birth'. Therapy has since allowed him to tap out messages on a computer screen.

Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat



 Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

 
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.

 Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
 

 
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. 
 
  
When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

 
Here's how it works:
 

 
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in: 


 
United States -- Muslim 0.6% 
 
Australia -- Muslim 1.5% 
 
Canada -- Muslim 1.9% 
 
China -- Muslim 1.8% 
 
Italy -- Muslim 1.5% 
 
Norway -- Muslim 1.8% 

 

 
At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. 
This is happening in:
 

 
Denmark -- Muslim 2% 
 
Germany -- Muslim 3.7% 
 
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7% 
 
Spain -- Muslim 4% 
 
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6% 

 

 
From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for 
Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
 

 
France -- Muslim 8% 
 
Philippines -- 5% 
 
Sweden -- Muslim 5% 
 
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3% 
 
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5% 
 
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8% 


 
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world. 

 
When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings.. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in: 
 
Guyana -- Muslim 10% 
 
India -- Muslim 13.4% 
Israel -- Muslim 16%
 
 
Kenya -- Muslim 10% 
 
Russia -- Muslim 15% 


After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
 

 
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8% 

 

 
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in: 

 
Bosnia -- Muslim 40% 
 
Chad -- Muslim 53.1% 
 
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%

 

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
 

 
Albania -- Muslim 70% 
 
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4% 
 
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5% 
 
Sudan -- Muslim 70% 


After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
 

 
Bangladesh -- Muslim 83% 
 
Egypt -- Muslim 90% 
 
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7% 
 
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1% 
 
Iran -- Muslim 98% 
 
Iraq -- Muslim 97% 
 
Jordan -- Muslim 92% 
 
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7% 
 
Pakistan -- Muslim 97% 
 
Palestine -- Muslim 99% 
 
Syria -- Muslim 90% 
 
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90% 
 
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8% 
 
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96% 

 

 
100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: 

 
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100% 
 
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100% 
 
Somalia -- Muslim 100% 
 
Yemen -- Muslim 100% 

 
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. 

 
'Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj' 

 
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate. 

 
Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century.

BREAKING: San Diego ACORN Document Dump Scandal

by Derrick Roach

On October 1st, 2009 California Attorney General Jerry Brown announced that an investigation had been opened into ACORN’s activities in California, resulting from undercover videos showing employees seemingly offering to assist the undercover film makers with human smuggling, child prostitution and even tax advice to boot.

Although ACORN has denied any wrongdoing, some of the employees involved were terminated, and ACORN has publicly stated that they would fully cooperate with any investigations that followed.

SanDiegoACORNDocumentDumpScandal-100909-Photo1

Interestingly, the local head ACORN organizer in California, David Lagstein was caught on tape earlier this month speaking to an East County Democratic Club.

Mr. Lagstein stated: “…the attorney general is a political animal, but certainly every bit of the communication we have had with them has suggested that the fault will be found with the people that did the video and not the people with ACORN.”

Continuing, Mr. Lagstein stated: “…we are fully cooperating, some of the investigators visited our office this morning and I think they really understand what’s going on.”

Shockingly, we now learn that the ACORN office in National City (San Diego County) engaged in a massive document dump on the evening of October 9th, containing thousands upon thousands of sensitive documents, just days prior to the Attorney General’s visit.

SanDiegoACORNDocumentDumpScandal-100909-Photo4

BigGovernment.com has learned that not only did this document dump occur, but the documents in question were irresponsibly and brazenly dumped in a public dumpster, without considering laws and regulations as to how sensitive information should be treated.

I am a local licensed private investigator. I took it upon myself to keep an eye on what the local ACORN office was up to, in light of the release of the undercover videos. I retrieved these documents from the public dumpster.

SanDiegoACORNDocumentDumpScandal-100909-Photo3

Documents shared with BigGovernment.com include information exposing not only the inner workings of ACORN in California, but also personal, sensitive information belonging to employees, members and clients of ACORN. ACORN and its few remaining defenders insist that the “good” ACORN provides outweighs the transgressions exposed in the recent undercover video sting. But, ACORN’s massive dumping of these documents and the cavalier manner in which it betrayed the trust of its supporters betrays that talking point. (Unlike ACORN, we have redacted sensitive and personal information.)


SanDiegoACORNDocumentDumpScandal-100909-Document1

ACORN’s political agenda is also exposed, with thousands upon thousands of documents revealing the depth of the political machine that is ACORN, and its disturbing ties to not only public employee labor unions but some of the most radical leftist organizations.

The laws governing how sensitive, personal information such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, immigration records, tax returns, etc. must be treated are very stringent, and thus it seems as if ACORN may have committed serious violations in that department alone, with thousands upon thousands of potential plaintiffs.

SanDiegoACORNDocumentDumpScandal-100909-Photo5

Included throughout this post are a couple of photos showing the dump site, as well as just a small sample of the type of documents summarily dumped by the San Diego office of ACORN. In addition the video clip, from the evening of the document dump, shows ACORN operatives clearly engaged in some kind of discussion – likely related to the activities of that evening.

EU 'prez' champions 'global management of planet'

Proclaims G20, Copenhagen climate summit steps toward 1-world government

Posted: November 23, 2009
1:09 pm Eastern

© 2009 WorldNetDaily

Editor's Note: The following report is excerpted from Jerome Corsi's Red Alert, the premium online newsletter published by the current No. 1 best-selling author, WND staff writer and columnist. Red Alert subscriptions are $99 a year or $9.95 per month for credit card users. Annual subscribers will receive a free autographed copy of "The Late Great USA," a book about the careful deceptions of a powerful elite who want to undermine our nation's sovereignty.

In accepting his appointment to be the first permanent president of the European Council in the European Union, Herman Van Rompuy affirmed his belief that the new world order would be dominated by international organizations that would seek to destroy the last vestiges of nation-states on the face of the globe, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

In the following speech captured by BBC and posted on YouTube, Van Rompuy proclaimed, "2009 is the first year of global governance with the establishment of the G20 in the middle of the financial crisis."

He continued, "The climate conference in Copenhagen is another step toward the global management of our planet."

(Story continues below)



In the following widely viewed YouTube video, Mario Borghezio, a member of Italy's Lega Nord who is also a member of the European Parliament, pointed out in a speech to the European Parliament that Van Rompuy is a frequent attendee at Bilderberg Group and Trilateral Commission meetings.

Borghezio asked how it is possible that no one has mentioned Van Rompuy is a candidate of these "occult groups" who "meet behind closed doors to decide matters over the heads of the people."

Van Rompuy is known in Europe for his proposals that in the EU national symbols need to be replaced by European symbols, such that the national flags of the EU member nations would disappear in favor of the EU flag, and the same would happen with license plates, identity cards and even sporting events, as reported by the Telegraph in Great Britain.

"Even the selection of the largely unknown Van Rompuy to be the first EU Council president and the selection of the equally unknown Lady Catherine Ashton, an EU trade commissioner, to be EU foreign policy head, smacked of back-room deals made by global elitists seeking to fill the new posts created by the Lisbon Treaty with EU global elitists like themselves," Corsi wrote.

He said neither Van Rompuy nor Ashton was elected, noting that Lady Ashton has never held an elected position in her life.

Contemplating the appointment of Van Rompuy and Lady Ashton, Corsi said he is reminded of Jean Monnet, a key architect of the European Union.

In his "Memoirs," Monnet recalled that in his Luxembourg office he kept on his desk a photograph of the Kon-Tiki, the raft Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl used in his 1947 expedition from South America to the Polynesian islands across the Pacific.

When asked about the photograph, Monnet explained that he admired the young men who sailed the Kon-Tiki because once they chose a course, they knew they could not turn back.

"We too are headed for our objective, the United States of Europe," Monnet openly proclaimed, "and for us too there is no turning back."

Corsi wrote, "Following Van Rompuy's comments, there should be no doubt that the globalists have no intention of stopping or slowing down, as even the EU itself is simply one small step of regionalism on the new world order journey of international government in which nation-states themselves become bygone entities of a once-treasured past."

Red Alert's author, whose books "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command" have topped the New York Times best-sellers list, received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in political science in 1972. For nearly 25 years, beginning in 1981, he worked with banks throughout the U.S. and around the world to develop financial services marketing companies to assist banks in establishing broker/dealers and insurance subsidiaries to provide financial planning products and services to their retail customers. In this career, Corsi developed three different third-party financial services marketing firms that reached gross sales levels of $1 billion in annuities and equal volume in mutual funds. In 1999, he began developing Internet-based financial marketing firms, also adapted to work in conjunction with banks.

In his 25-year financial services career, Corsi has been a noted financial services speaker and writer, publishing three books and numerous articles in professional financial services journals and magazines.

Achtung! Prosecutor says only jail deters homeschooling

Erupts in anger when Nazi foundations of ban cited

A prosecutor demanded jail time for two parents accused by German authorities of homeschooling their children, and he erupted in anger when the Nazi foundations of the ban on parents teaching their children at home was cited.

Juergen and Rosemary Dudek of Archfeldt, Germany, were given 90 days in prison last year because they homeschool their children. They received the sentence after prosecutor Herwig Mueller asserted it was the only sufficient punishment for the family's "crime," appealing a lower-court order to issue a fine.

Ultimately, the sentence was thrown out on a technicality, and the Dudeks now are revisiting the court process and Mueller's renewed demands, according to the Home School Legal Defense Association.

Spokesman Mike Donnelly told WND the trial, which began Nov. 16, is to resume Wednesday with testimony from another witness. A court decision is expected as early as that day. More...

Global Warming Data horribilia: the HARRY_READ_ME.txt file

the CRU emails having been examined, it seems that some people—mainly techies—are really starting to dig into the data files. These files are, as far as we can tell, temperature data, modelling results and other such useful files, i.e. these are the files produced and worked on by the CRU teams, as well as considerable amounts of information on—and code from—the actual computer modelling programmes themselves.In other words, these are the guts of CRU's actual computer models—the data, the code and the applications.And they are, by all accounts, a total bloody mess.

++++ START INSERT ++++So, come with me on a wonderful journey as the CRU team realise that not only have they lost great chunks of data but also that their application suites and algorithms are total crap; join your humble Devil and Asimov as we dive into the HARRY_READ_ME.txt (thanks to The Englishman) file and follow the trials and tribulations of Ian "Harry" Harris as he tries to recreate the published data because he has nothing else to go on!Thrill as he "glosses over" anomalies; let your heart sing as he gets some results to within 0.5 degrees; rejoice as Harry points out that everything is undocumented and that, generally speaking, he hasn't got the first clue as to what's going on with the data!
Chuckle as one of CRU's own admits that much of the centre's data and applications are undocumented, bug-ridden, riddled with holes, missing, uncatalogued and, in short, utterly worthless.And wonder as you realise that this was v2.10 and that, after this utter fiasco, CRU used the synthetic data and wonky algorithms to produce v3.0!You'll laugh! You'll cry! You won't wonder why CRU never wanted to release the data! You will wonder why we are even contemplating restructuring the world economy and wasting trillions of dollars on the say-so of data this bad.++++ END INSERT ++++ More...
