Obama announces 15 recess appointments, scolds GOP

WASHINGTON (AP) – Fed up with waiting, President Barack Obama announced Saturday he would bypass a vacationing Senate and name 15 people to key administration jobs, wielding for the first time the blunt political tool known as the recess appointment.

The move immediately deepened the divide between the Democratic president and Republicans in the Senate following a long, bruising fight over health care. Obama revealed his decision by blistering Republicans, accusing them of holding up nominees for months solely to try to score a political advantage on him.

“I simply cannot allow partisan politics to stand in the way of the basic functioning of government,” Obama said in a statement.

The 15 appointees to boards and agencies include the contentious choice of union lawyer Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board. Republicans had blocked his nomination on grounds he would bring a radical pro-union agenda to the job, and they called on Obama not to appoint Becker over the recess.

Do you know the difference between Adolph Hitler and Barack Hussein Obama?

So far, politically, not that much. There are also many similarities in the lives and backgrounds, their beliefs and dreams.

At the age of 35 Adolph Hitler would write a book called, “Mein Kampf� (translated as “My Struggle�). It would be an autobiography containing insights pertaining to his early years, political ideas, and thoughts on race.

At the age of 34 Barack Obama would write a book called, “Dreams of my Father�, also an autobiography highlighting his early years, political ideas, and thoughts on race.

Hitler’s “Zweites Buch� (translated as “Second Book�) contains a deeper understanding of his political ideas. The same can also be said about Obama’s second book, “The Audacity of Hope�.

Both Hitler and Obama used their books as a springboard to further their political careers. The title of Obama’s second book was based on a sermon of Reverend Wright and was the foundational basis of the speech he gave at the Democratic National Convention in 2004. It was that speech which caught the attention of the media and the public, both of whom propelled him to political stardom. He further expounded on those ideas to publish his second book in 2006, just before announcing his run for the Presidency. The book was on the New York Times best-seller list for 30 weeks.

Ok, so they have a similar childhood and they both wrote two books around similar themes. So what? Well, we suspected both might have had NPD too. Let’s talk a little more about NPD to see if there is really a connection to be concerned about here.

President to address school students September 8

President to address school students September 8

There’s quite a buzz going around about Tuesday, September 8th.

That’s the day President Obama will address PreK-12 students via televisions and screens in public school classrooms, auditoriums, and ‘cafetoriums’ across the nation. This is a feat never before attempted by a sitting president.

Reactions are mixed, no doubt in part because our nation is politically polarized. While some parents think it is a good idea for the president to reach out to school kids, others disagree. Why? Many prefer to be the gate-keeper of social and spiritual influences and want politics and religion kept out of schools.

Some parents view the president’s move as over-reaching and suspect that propaganda will be forced on a young, impressionable, captive audience. Many of these concerned parents are rallying to keep their children home on September 8th. There are movements at work to boycott public schools on that Tuesday.

Here is the actual PreK – 6 itinerary for schools and an outline of the president’s message. President Obama’s Address to Students Across America September 8, 2009

Here’s what I think, and I make no apologies for my feelings on this matter, NONE. I am only going to say one thing, Adolph Hitler went for the children, the YOUTH of Germany. Keep your children HOME on Sept. 8th. ’nuff said!

Obama signs service bill, says volunteers needed

Obama signs service bill, says volunteers needed

WASHINGTON (AP) – Calling on Americans to volunteer, President Barack Obama signed a $5.7 billion national service bill Tuesday that triples the size of the AmeriCorps service program over the next eight years and expands ways for students to earn money for college.

“We need your service, right now, in this moment in history. … I’m asking you to stand up and play your part,” said Obama, a former community organizer in Chicago. “I’m asking you to help change history’s course.”

Joining Obama was Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who has been battling brain cancer. Kennedy championed the legislation with Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and the bill was named in honor of the Massachusetts Democrat.

Kennedy told the audience that included former President Bill Clinton, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former first lady Rosalyn Carter that Obama’s efforts echoed that of his late brother, former President John F. Kennedy.

“Today, another young president has challenged another generation to give back to their nation,” Kennedy said, citing his brother’s advocacy of the Peace Corps.
