Obama, McCain: Worldviews Apart on America and Her Enemies

Your Ad Here

Obama's Anti-American Roots:
When Many of Obama's Associates and Advisers Are Anti-American and Anti-Israel, What Will Obama's Policy Be?

Great Britains's Melanie Phillips can't quite believe "Is America really going to do this?". She begins by comparing John McCain and Barack Obama.

"...the only way to assess their position is to look at each man in the round, at what his general attitude is towards war and self-defence, aggression and appeasement, the values of the west and those of its enemies and – perhaps most crucially of all – the nature of the advisers and associates to whom he is listening. As I have said before, I do not trust McCain; I think his judgment is erratic and impetuous, and sometimes wrong. But on the big picture, he gets it. He will defend America and the free world whereas Obama will undermine them and aid their enemies."

Here’s why. McCain believes in protecting and defending America as it is. Obama tells the world he is ashamed of America and wants to change it into something else. McCain stands for American exceptionalism, the belief that American values are superior to tyrannies. Obama stands for the expiation of America’s original sin in oppressing black people, the third world and the poor.

Obama thinks world conflicts are basically the west’s fault, and so it must right the injustices it has inflicted. That’s why he believes in ‘soft power’ — diplomacy, aid, rectifying ‘grievances’ (thus legitimising them, encouraging terror and promoting injustice) and resolving conflict by talking. As a result, he will take an axe to America’s defences at the very time when they need to be built up. He has said he will ‘cut investments in unproven missile defense systems’; he will ‘not weaponize space’; he will ‘slow our development of future combat systems’; and he will also ‘not develop nuclear weapons,’ pledging to seek ‘deep cuts’ in America’s arsenal, thus unilaterally disabling its nuclear deterrent as Russia and China engage in massive military buildups.

McCain understands that an Islamic war of conquest is being waged on a number of diverse fronts which all have to be seen in relation to each other. For Obama, however, the real source of evil in the world is America. The evil represented by Iran and the Islamic jihadists is apparently all America’s fault. ‘A lot of evil’s been perpetuated based on the claim that we were fighting evil,’ he said. Last May, he dismissed Iran as a tiny place which posed no threat to the US -- before reversing himself the very next day when he said Iran was a great threat which had to be defeated. He has also said that Hezbollah and Hamas have ‘legitimate grievances’. Really? And what might they be? Their grievances are a) the existence of Israel b) its support by America c) the absence of salafist Islam in the world. Does Obama think these ‘grievances’ are legitimate?

Phillips, with an outsider's eye, correctly sees the stark differences between John McCain, whom the press and Obama campaign have portrayed as "erratic", and Barack Obama, a candidate whose main qualification, according to the media, is his ability to "appear presidential".

If Obama is elected, then America will get to see if Joe Biden's "guarantee" of an international crisis is correct. None of this matters to many Obama supporters.

But the fact of the matter is: much of the world depends upon the United States for its security. The world, and especially many parts of Europe, will be able to see what the vision of an eviscerated US military looks like.

And Obama has promised just such an evisceration.

From Video: Barack Obama's Three-point Surrender Plan [March 23, 2008]:

Barack Obama's 3-point USA Surrender Plan:

1-Will end the war in Iraq immediately
2-Will end missile defense systems
3-Will not develop new nuclear weapons and achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals

Phillips' main concern is terrorism--which will not disappear if Obama is elected, despite the hopes of his supporters.

There are, alas, many in the west for whom all this is music to their ears. Whether through wickedness, ideology, stupidity or derangement, they firmly believe that the ultimate source of conflict in the world derives at root from America and Israel, whose societies, culture and values they want to see emasculated or destroyed altogether. They are drooling at the prospect that an Obama presidency will bring that about. The rest of us can’t sleep at night.

Some will sleep just fine. That would be those whose world view is one where no rogue nations exist; where 9-11 was somehow caused by America; and, where any international crisis can be forgotten by switching the channel to something more entertaining or pleasant.

Obama Camp Cancels FL TV Interview over Tough Questions

Unpleasant Media Questions:
Obama Campaign Cancels Interview with Florida TV Station

Paul Joseph Goebbels was a German politician and Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. He was one of German dictator Adolf Hitler's closest associates and most devout followers.
Joseph Goebbels

Joseph Goebbels was famous for controlling the flow of information and news in Nazi Germany. To be clear: we are not saying the Obama campaign is a Nazi organization--though comparisons between Bush and Hitler have been a favorite staple of leftie blogs for most of the Bush administration.

We're just saying: Herr Goebbels would recognize the Obama campaign's cutting media access off to those who ask unpleasant questions.

Here's a tip to the media, in case they didn't already know it: if you ask any questions of Barack Obama or Joe Biden that aren't of the "softball" variety, you can forget getting anymore access.

From Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden:

Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."

Here's a link to the interview:

WFTV news director Bob Jordan said, "When you get a shot to ask these candidates, you want to make the most of it. They usually give you five minutes."

Jordan said political campaigns in general pick and choose the stations they like. And stations often pose softball questions during the satellite interviews.

"Mr. Biden didn't like the questions," Jordan said. "We choose not to ask softball questions."

Jordan added, "I'm crying foul on this one."

Ours may be labeled a "partisan" view. The charge will likely come from many of the same people who delighted in posting "Bushitler" images on the Internet. Campaigns do try to control the flow of news and Obama's is no different.

We just note the lack of 'outrage' from those same quarters that raised a fuss over all things George Bush.

Meanwhile, Big Media can heave a sigh of relief: there's no chance of the Obama campaign canceling any interviews with ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times, LA Times or MSNBC.

There's also no chance of Americans learning anything from those "news" outlets--except perhaps, Barack Obama or Joe Biden's favorite color.

Obama Records: Medical, College, Other Records Still Off-Limits

Obama's Missing Records:
Medical, College, University, Birth Certificate and Other Records
Packaging Barack Obama Part 1

"If it's too good to be true then it's probably a scam."

[UPDATE: Obama Birth Certificate Federal Lawsuits
Berg v. Obama lawsuit in Philadelphia federal court is dismissed due to Phillip Berg having lack of standing to sue. Obama birth certificate lawsuit news in the section below.]

The refusal of the Obama campaign to allow the public to see Obama's records just days before the election is somewhat mystifying.

Unless there is something in them that the campaign feels will be damaging to their efforts to win the White House.

The spate of lawsuits popping up in state courts over the Obama birth certificate issue is a side one. Obama supporters can argue that Obama has produced an image on his website of a Certificate of Live Birth.

Fair enough. But Obama supporters can make no case for the candidate's refusal to release his other records. An informed electorate needs information.

That the reason we're more concerned with Obama making his other records off-limits to public scrutiny: medical records, college and univesity records.

Medical Records
Occidental College Records
Columbia University Records
Harvard University Records
Birth Records
University of Chicago Records

Obama's Medical Records?

Barack Obama has refused to release his medical records. Instead, the public will have to make do with an undated letter signed by a doctor which assured the press and the American public that Obama was "in excellent health".

* Obama College, Medical, Birth Records: Who is Barack Obama?
* Obama Medical Records: MSM’s Don’t Ask, Obama’s Don’t Tell Policy
* Obama Records: Obama Campaign Still Refuses to Release Medical, Other Records

As DBKP noted last week, when John McCain delayed releasing his medical records to the press last May, the New York Times thundered to it dwindling readers:

"No presidential candidate should get to the point that he has locked up his party’s nomination without public vetting of his health."
--New York Times, on John McCain in May 4 2008 "Missing Records"

Six months later, the New York Times is predictably silent on the still-secret Obama medical records.

Obama's Occidental College Records?

The only trace of Barack Obama at Occidental College that the public is allowed to see is a few poems that may be ordered on the college's website.

"Transcripts of his poems are available upon request."

Obama's Columbia University Records?

Contributing to the mystery is the fact that nobody knows just how well Mr. Obama, unlike Senator McCain and most other major candidates for the past two elections, performed as a student.

The Obama campaign has refused to release his college transcript, despite an academic career that led him to Harvard Law School and, later, to a lecturing position at the University of Chicago. The shroud surrounding his experience at Columbia contrasts with that of other major party nominees since 2000, all whom have eventually released information about their college performance or seen it leaked to the public.
--Obama's Years at Columbia Are a Mystery

Obama's Harvard University Records?

Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign says his campaign will bring a new level of honesty and transparency to the White House. Obama proudly touts that he and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla, passed a law requiring more transparency via a public database of all federal spending.

But when it comes to offering the public documents about his own public and private activities, Obama’s record for openness gets an "F" grade.

During the heated Democratic primary, Obama complained of the Bush White House being “one of the most secretive administrations in our history” and chided Sen. Hillary Clinton for not releasing her White House schedules.

Ironically, Obama, just days away from possibly being elected president, continues to stonewall a growing chorus of information requests for documents about his legislative, personal health, education, financing, and background -- leaving many voters to cast ballots based on incomplete information.

Obama Birth Certificate

Phillip Berg's lawsuit in federal court to force Obama to provide his birth certificate to a federal judge was dismissed yesterday due to Berg's lack of standing.

The order and memorandum came down at approximately 6:15 p.m. on Friday. Philip Berg's lawsuit challenging Illinois Sen. Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility to serve as president of the United States had been dismissed by the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick on grounds that the Philadelphia attorney and former Deputy Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania lacked standing.
--Lawsuit Against Obama Dismissed from Philidelphia Federal Court

Berg's lack of standing was cited by many, including our crack research department, as the reason the Berg v. Obama suit would likely be dismissed.

This lack of standing will not settle the issue in the eight state courts where suits have been brought for the same reason as Berg. Their chances on the standing issue are greater.

Jeff Schreiber, Two Articles: Two Sides of Berg v. Obama, remarks on the same Newsmax article we saw last evening, Obama Refuses to Answer Birth Certificate Lawsuit.

The first piece is by Kenneth Timmerman of Newsmax, the same reporter who, just a few days ago, wrote so well about the questionable $63 million in Barack Obama's campaign coffers. He goes into detail about Obama's birth certificate, even providing a link to the Certificate of Live Birth provided by the Illinois senator, and an official Certificate of Live Birth from a person born just two years later. Reproduction issues aside, one quite obviously provides more information than the other.

Timmerman also raises an interesting point by highlighting a segment from one of Obama's memoirs in which he actually mentions the document:

Ironically, Obama mentions his birth certificate in passing on Page 26 of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams of My Father.” “I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I was in high school,” he wrote.

As much as I am a skeptic as to all of this business--I've said time and time again that I simply feel as though we are constitutionally obligated to ensure that our leaders are properly vetted--this, to me, presents a question as to why it was necessary for Obama to provide an obviously laser-printed, recent copy of his birth records in the first place. If he had his original, tucked in among articles and old vaccination forms, why not just provide that one?

Timmerman asks a good question.

OUR PREDICTION: It won't be the last time the question is asked before Election Day 2008.

The quote at the top of the page was by New Zealand Consumer Affairs Minister Judith Tizard and was used in New Zealand during 2007 to kick off something called Fraud Awareness Month.

Many readers are likely familiar with the job interview process. The process is simple: The prospective employer is trying to determine if the person he hires will enjoy success with the hiring company.

The company asks for information through an interview, the job application, a resume and the person wanting the job supplies various records--especially college and university records--to the employer to help the company make a decision. If the job is an attractive/important one, the employer will want as much information as possible.

Barack Obama is asking the American people to hire him as President of the United States.

It's a very important job.

If he wants the American people to hire him, he should provide as such basic information that plenty of other candidates have provided in the past: medical records, college records, university records and other records.

The Obama campaign is essentially asking the American people to trust him; to hire him as President.

He can begin earning that trust by providing his records to the press and public.

Obama Birth Certificate: Serious Citizenship Questions Emerge

Serious Questions Emerge About Obama's U.S. Citizenship
Nancy Morgan

Obama's Birth Certificate and the Campaign's Response

For weeks, Internet blogs have been abuzz with questions regarding the validity of Obama's U.S. citizenship. Only recently have these questions been given serious consideration

Philip Berg, lifelong Democrat and Philadelphia lawyer, filed a lawsuit August 8, 2008, challenging Obama's claim of U.S. citizenship. The lawsuit could be resolved if Obama simply produces his birth certificate, which he has yet to do.

Questions have arisen about the birth certificate Obama initially placed on his web site. Well known Fact, attested to its authenticity but, as this video produced by Philip Berg shows, serious questions remain. Berg has pointed out that is associated with the Annenberg Foundation, upon whose board Obama once sat.

Obama's grandmother has allegedly claimed to have been present at Obama's birth - in a hospital in Kenya. (Obama has taken the unprecedented step of suspending his campaign two weeks before the election in order to visit with his grandmother in Hawaii.) Obama's half-sister claims differently.

To date, the questions swirling around Obama's birth certificate have not been investigated or aired by any major media outlet. WPTV of West Palm Beach Florida is the only credible source to address this issue. They report, "The Obama camp and Democratic National Committee responded to the lawsuit by filing a motion to dismiss, but they never responded to the request for admissions.", yesterday also reported on these allegations, as did conservative talk show host, Michael Savage. considers William Berg's video compelling enough to be seriously considered. Though we have not done an in-depth investigation, the fact that Obama has yet to produce his birth certificate raises valid questions.

This video is app. 9 minutes long. Every American should have access to the information it contains in order to decide for themselves the veracity of Berg's allegations.

Good Day for those looking to find out the truth about Senator Obama's Birth Certificate. Its finally growing beyond the "blogisphere." Andy McCarthy of NRO Picked it up today and the number of Law Suits is up to eight States. Senator, if all IS kosher with your "Certificate of Live Birth" then why don't you tell Hawaii to release your Official Document?:

With the Obama website, "Fight the" posting that Obama had dual citizenship with Kenya, questions were bound to arise.--questions which the campaign has sucessfully ignored thus far since posting the dual citizenship annnouncement.

Since the story is spreading rapidly over the last several days--Rush Limbaugh mentioned it yesterday, Michael Savage interviewed Phillip Berg last night and now NRO reporting on it--expect a curt denial from the campaign.

As well as the appropriate pieces in Big Media castigating any who have asked questions.

BERG v. OBAMA Federal Lawsuit

Jeff Schreiber at America's Right--who broke the Berg v. Obama lawsuit story on the Internet and has excellent coverage of the lawsuit has news. From Space Reserved for News on Court Order

Second, I was told yesterday afternoon that the order would likely be coming down either late yesterday--5:30 to 6:00 p.m.--or some time this morning. Obviously, Judge Surrick has the final word on this, and if he feels that he is not satisfied with his memorandum, especially considering the number of new filings this week, it may be later.

Schreiber also reports what may be a rightly called a bombshell:

Incidentally, Philip Berg was on Michael Savage's radio program last night and spoke about taped evidence, and sworn affidavits, that he has showing Obama's paternal grandmother in Kenya saying that she was present in the delivery room for his birth. I know for a fact that Berg does indeed have tapes of this kind in his possession -- but as the parts I heard were in a language I did not understand [and he was in the process of having translated], I cannot attest for sure that the tapes contain what Berg contends.

This is complete news to many--including DBKP.


There are so many conflicting stories on the African Press International story that we will refrain from comment until some hard info can be obtained.

DBKP has received emails with many claims. Some of these claims are very believable and come from sources that are credible. Some are not.

The only thing we know for sure is that World Net Daily is reporting that it has an unnamed source at Fox News that is saying that there are no negotiations with Fox News ongoing over the API tapes.

Fox News denies negotiating over 'Michelle Obama tapes':

"A Fox News official who requested anonymity said there simply were no negotiations with API over any tapes or any other issue."

The number of rumors and speculation over Barack Obama seems to have hit a hit point in the last few days. Rumors over such things as Obama's relationship with Frank Marshall Davis, parentage, and other issues has grown.

We don't put any stock in many of the rumors; but when information is kept from the public, the public will many times supply its own information. The secrecy surrounding the Obama medical, college and university records only fuels the speculation.

We will only remark: a wait and see attitude seems advisable--heavy on the "wait".

CORRUPTION: Obama Shady Contributions, Big Media's Lack of Reporting it

Your Ad Here

Obama Shady Campaign Contributions:
Serious Questions Surround
Almost Half of Obama Contributions
Credit Card Chicanery, Foreign Donations

Mainstream Media Not Interested

Back in May, Doug Ross made the discovery that Barack Obama was the only website that accepted foreign contributions without proof of US citizenship.

The Mainstream Press yawned.

"In May of this year I noted the fact that the Obama campaign ran the only website that permitted donations from foreign countries without any proof of citizenship."

The MSM is still yawning--when they take time out from digging through dumpsters looking for their next big break in the Joe the Plumber story.

Now, Ross is writing about the Obama campaign disabling safeguards so that even Osama bin Laden can make a credit card contribution to his favorite agent of 'Change!'.

From Doug Ross@Journal: The Obama Campaign's Massive Credit Card Scandal
You know how ACORN registered thousands of bogus voters like Mickey Mouse and Daffy Duck? ACORN's handlers at the Obama campaign seem to be accepting contributions from Mickey and Daffy too.

It turns out that the Obama campaign's crack team of fundraisers decided to turn off all security validation for credit-card donations. Want to enter the name Pedro Martinez when the credit-card belongs to Arnold Fizbin? Need to use the ZIP code 99999 when the card owner's ZIP is 02154? No problem! The Obama campaign doesn't care!

In order for this to occur, the "Address Verification System has to be specifically disabled to allow this fraud."

If this happened on the McCain-Palin08 website, a gaggle of reporters would descend on the story and the BREAKING! graphic would likely melt down on CNN from overuse--if one can image that.

Andrew McCarty, Ross notes, has estimated that almost half of Obama's contributions--nearly $200 million--have questions surrounding them. Where are the vetting agents of Big Media?

Well, yesterday they were writing about the Republican National Committee's budget for Sarah Palin's wardrobe.

Estimates ranged as high as--brace yourself--$150,000. We'll be the first to admit that reporters are not always the smartest people in the world, so perhaps the large numbers involved in the Obama contributions story have given them trouble.

The New York Times, TIME and Newsweek might consider hiring math tutors.

Ross ends up:

In summary: the five-year stock price of the New York Times

While the Times' CSI unit probes Joe the Plumber's health records and scrutinizes Sarah Palin's shoe bills, an election is well nigh being stolen right under their very eyes. Although this scandal is a doozy, the Times is silent about this flagrant abuse of election law.

Eleven days remain until the election... hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal and foreign donations appear to have flowed into Obama's coffers... and Manhattan's Pravda can't rustle up a story. Not to worry. I give them six months.

Don't let these criminals steal the election. Vote.

The dereliction of duty in the Mainstream Press in 2008 has been breath-taking.

For students of history, one of the only advantages to living through times of great corruption is being able to say later, "I was there."

One only has to determine which corruption is worse: the Obama campaign's contribution mechanisms or the silence in the toothless watchdog press.

Obama's Records: Obama Campaign Still Refuses Release of Medical, College Records

Your Ad Here

Barack Obama's Refusal to Release Records:
Medical, College, University Records Off-Limits

"Every time somebody turns over a rock of Barack Obama's past, something unpleasant crawls out."
--RE Bierce, in email to DBKP

The Obama campaign refuses to release Obama's medical records--as well as Obama's records from Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard.

Why is that?

Perhaps it is because, as one reader put it, "Every time somebody turns over a rock of Barack Obama's past, something unpleasant crawls out."

The Mainstream Media refuses to press the issue.

Why is that?

In the Chicago Tribune's case, it's because they have a vested interest: the Tribune asked Obama to run for president in 2006. Obama's campaign mastermind, David Axelrod, used to work for the Chicago Tribune. One would assume he still has a few friends that work at the paper.

And friends do favors for friends.

The following video details a few unpleasant facts about Barack Obama and what little is known about his past: his association with Bill Ayers, ACORN, Jeremiah Wright, and the list continues.

We saw the video on a post entitled, "The Smoking Gun Obama Post" at Infidels are Cool site.

The "smoking gun post" has a collection of links that ask a host of questions that would most likely make the Obama campaign uncomfortable--if they were pressed on the issues by MSM reporters.

But, they haven't been.

Among some of the links in the IAC article (comments below the links are by IAC's Infidelesto:

The post at Infidels are Cool lists another 11 links in their list.

"Smear" being the word for any uncomfortable information that has surfaced in the media or on the Internet.

Why does the Obama campaign refuse to release Obama's medical, college and university records?

Two reasons: one, the Mainstream Media allows them to get away with it. It's unthinkable what the outcry would be if John McCain had refused to release his records. In fact, in May, because McCain delayed in releasing his medical records, there was such an outcry.

The second reason for the refusal?

The refusal suggests the Obama campaign is afraid of what those records might reveal.

Bill Ayers: We'll Have to Kill 25 Million Die-Hard Capitalists

Your Ad Here

"Well, what is going to happen to those people that we can't re‑educate, that are die-hard capitalists?" And the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated and when I pursued this further, they estimated that they'd have to eliminate 25 million people in these re‑education centers."
--Bill Ayers, in Prairie Fire

Dr Sanity and Zombie Tackle The Troublesome Baby Sitter: Little Billy Ayers

Dr Sanity, a practicing psychologist , presents a wonderful essay on the narcissism of the sociopathic William Ayers. ( The casual evilness of this loon is best expressed in this contemporary account.

"The only thing that I could get was that they expected that the Cubans, the North Vietnamese, the Chinese and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States. They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counter-revolution. And they felt that this counter-revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing re-education in the Southwest where we would take all of the people who needed to be re‑educated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be. I asked, "Well, what is going to happen to those people that we can't re‑educate, that are die-hard capitalists?" And the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated and when I pursued this further, they estimated that they'd have to eliminate 25 million people in these re‑education centers. And when I say eliminate, I mean kill 25 million people. I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of whom have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well-known educational centers and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious. (emphasis mine...and Beverly's)"

Dr Sanity notes:
"We are always warned about the individual narcissitic sociopaths; but most people don't appreciate the sociopathic qualities of groups, religions, nations, and ideologies that demand all individuals sacrifice themselves for the good of the latest utopian ideal or some blood-thirsty god."

Meanwhile Zombie continued his sleuthing into Ayers past. The Zombie dug up Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism,, William Ayers manifesto to the USA. (
Now there is an entertaining read. The true lunacy of this murderous creep, the citizen of the year in Chicago, the USA flag stomping hypocrite, who has learned to turn his hatred of the country onto dollars, is exposed. Zombie says:
" • Ayers was not simply protesting "against" the Vietnam War. Firstly, he wasn't against war in principle, he was agitating for the victory of the communist forces in Vietnam. In other words: He wasn't against the war, he was against our side in the war. This is spelled out in great detail in Prairie Fire. Secondly, and more significantly, the Vietnam War was only one of many issues cited by the Weather Undergound as the justifications for their violent acts. As you will see below, in various quotes from Prairie Fire and in their own list of their violent actions (and in additional impartial documentary links), Ayers and the Weather Underground enumerated dozens of different grievances as the rationales for their bombings -- their overarching goal being to inspire a violent mass uprising against the United States government in order to establish a communist "dictatorship of the proletariat," in Ayers' own words."

Obama Birth Certificate:
Berg v. Obama Federal Lawsuit News Update
African Press International News Update

* Ruling Possible today in Berg v. Obama?
* African Press International completes Arrangements for Legal Representation in North America

Updates to this story at: Obama Birth Certificate: Ruling in Berg v. Obama Expected In Next Two Days

There may be some movement in the federal lawsuit, Berg v. Obama, today.

Jeff Schreiber, a legal student who's also been covering the case from Philadelphia and has sources inside the federal courthouse is writing that there likely could be a ruling before this weekend.

Space Reserved for News on Court Order

"I have, from good and reliable sources, information suggesting that the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick will come down with an order and memorandum either on Thursday or Friday."

This space is reserved for news on that order. Therefore, unless something monumental occurs over the next two days, I will not be reporting anything further so as to reserve this spot for news regarding the decision in the Berg v. Obama case. It should be easier for everyone that you can simply check this part of the page for news of the order without having to wade through anything else.

Schreiber, who was the first to write about the Berg suit (Berg is demanding that Barack Obama supply the court with proof of his U.S. citizenship), has been the best source of news on Berg v. Obama.

Schreiber's site, America's Right, has a complete archive of the motions filed by both sides in the lawsuit and a trip through AR's archives, located on the right sidebar, will get readers up to speed on the case from the beginning.

Schreiber's best guess (he clearly labels it as one) has been that Berg lacks standing to sue Obama in federal court. From talking to his sources, Schreiber senses that the judge may surprise everyone on this point.

Common sense, for the past two months, has told me that Philip Berg's case will be eventually dismissed on grounds of lack of standing. Nevertheless, I have had a gut feeling that Judge Surrick may very well just surprise us all -- the information I have been getting over the past 24-36 hours reinforces that gut feeling.

Jeff Schreiber also tags this bit of info onto the above-cited post:

"Please refrain from calling the courthouse, as I am told that the phone calls are coming in at the rate of several dozen each day. And, as always, keep checking here at America's Right for updates, especially this crucial one. America's Right was the first to report on this lawsuit when it was filed on August 21, and I have no reason to believe that America's Right will not be the first to report on the judge's decision."

* DBKP has attempted to reach Phillip Berg over the last 24 hours, but Mr. Berg was out of his office yesterday, making the rounds of talk shows. Berg appeared on three different ones yesterday, including G.Gordon Liddy's.

* There have been two lawsuits in the states of Washington and Hawaii asking Obama to provide the secretary of state with basically the same information sought by Berg. According to reports, these cases would have a much better chance of success on the standing issue.


On the African Press International story (Michelle Obama's supposed phone conversation with a small African news agency), a much different update was being prepared than this one.

It has been nine days since African Press International claimed that Michelle Obama called one of its correspondents and made some controversial remarks. [Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: "My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks", on a direct telephone to API.]

Some bloggers have grown impatient and washed their hands of the entire affair, pronouncing it a hoax.

These writers may very well be correct in their assessment.

Our opinion?

We really don't have one. We have no reason to disbelieve African Press International's account of the incident. The Obama campaign quickly issued denials to ABC and NRO concerning the story. That makes it a legitimate story in our minds, so we'll report on it.

DBKP was ready to join their ranks of those believing it was a hoax and decided to reserve judgment a bit.

Our reasoning?

We're here to report on the developments--if any--of this story. Is it a hoax? We repeatedly said: we don't know. We don't think anyone else at this point, outside of the principals involved, knows either. We'll let our readers make their own decisions about whether they believe or disbelieve the API stories.

That being said, DBKP has obtained information that legal representation for API for all of North America has been worked out and that the attorneys involved believe that they will have possession of the audio tapes later today.

From all accounts, API is described as a bunch of amateurs, unschooled in handling the unexpected attention their story brought them.

We've also received a few reports that several people have heard "snippets" from the tapes and that that they appear to be legitimate. We will caution:
  • We have no way of confirming this;
  • We have no way of knowing how these individuals arrived at their decision that they appeared legitimate; and,
  • We have no information on whether the individuals who've claimed they've heard the "snippets" of the audio have any particular background or expertise in validating or authenticating audio tapes.

We do have more reason to believe that whatever audio is available will be in the hands of attorneys in North America today.

The question of whether they are real or not would then have to be examined.

We will post more information as it becomes available and, as always, let our readers make their own judgments.

Culture: Iraq Good News, Culture Wars Madness and Idiot of the Week

Your Ad Here

Culture Watch Vol. 37
Nancy Morgan


The Obama campaign continues its media fueled juggernaut. Despite McCain now within the margin of error, the Media Declares Obama The Winner. Obama ads are now embedded in video games, and government schools even have a textbook that includes a chapter on Obama. One Middle school was ordered to remove a huge Obama poster hanging over the front entrance. I don't know about you, but this guy is starting to scare me.

Meanwhile, in case you missed it, there is lots of unreported,


Fox News appears to be the only media reporting on the excellent news coming out of Iraq. Baghdad has actually started to disarm. Iraqi soldiers have been collecting private guns around the capitol. Now, only citizens with the proper permits can keep their weapons.

Remember Fallujah? As in, 'the bloody battle of..?' Well, things have changed. Last February, there were 8,000 Marines stationed there to ensure security. Now there are only 3,000. And by next month, there will be none. Zero, Zip. All across Iraq our troops are quietly leaving - and so far the Iraqis are doing a pretty good job of keep their country terrorist free. Dare we say Mission Accomplished??

Oh, our guys also killed the number 2 al-Qaeda leader in Iraq - a Moroccan guy known for his ability to recruit and motivate foreign fighters. With any luck, he is now enjoying the company of 72 vegetarians in the great hereafter.

In other good news, Iran has decided to limit child executions. A new judicial directive bans the execution of kids for drug crimes but keeps capitol punishment for those convicted of murder. Talk about baby steps.


Bad news on the culture front. A new poll shows a full 69% of Democrats agree with Obama's socialist 'spread the wealth' position. And conservative icon Bill Buckley's son, Christopher, has decided to endorse Obama. He has since resigned from his dad's flagship magazine, National Review. Go figure.

Good news in France as Frenchmen decide to stand up for their country - Now, any football match before which France's National Anthem is booed, will be immediately stopped.
San Francisco will be voting on a measure this November to diss Bush in a big way by naming a sewage treatment plant after him. This is what liberals consider 'cute.' This is what conservatives consider an appalling lack of manners and class. One thing for sure - San Fran won't ever see a nickel of my vacation dollars.
God has gotten the boot in Washington. It seems another revision of America's religious history has been underway - this time at the $621 million Capitol Visitor Center due to open in a couple months.

For some reason, sex seems to be a major front in the culture wars. The good news is that sex offenders in Maryland must post this sign on their residences, in order to give trick-or-treaters a heads up that a pervert lives there.

In a further push towards androgyny, men are now invading women's fashion. It seems men's bras and mascara aren't enough. Now the truly 'with it' metrosexual is sporting 'manyhose.' Another cute idea from the left. For the record - I, nor anyone I know, will ever date a man wearing mantyhose. Yech.

Over in Dubai, a couple, who no doubt believed that all cultures are equal, was sentenced to jail for having public sex.

On the education front, an elementary school teacher who decided to have a sex-change operation and spring it on her class with no warning has a few parents spanking mad. (Can I say that?)

In what is called 'higher education,' thousands of useful idiots cum professors have signed a petition in support of domestic terrorist and fellow teacher (and friend of Obama), William Ayers. Remember him? He's the guy that tried to blow up the Pentagon and, to this day, regrets not being able to do so. Maybe Obama will make him head of Homeland Security.

Last, but not least, a homeless 22 year-old man killed a New York City college student because he was bored.


Check out the new, all too green, air-powered car. Its called the AirPod. Expect a huge decrease in the Green population if eco-idiots decide to drive this on the same road as a semi.

A new study has determined what I knew years ago: Bottled water is no purer than tap water. Also reporting on the obvious, another study has found that you have to listen to 7 late night jokes about Republicans for every 1 joke about Democrats. What makes this disturbing is the fact that late night talk shows are the major source of political news for most young people.


The hands down winner of this week's Idiots Award is Ireland's biggest bookmaker Paddy Power. He decided Thursday that he would pay out early more than 1 million euros on bets that Obama will be the next US president.

Space constraints and the plethora of idiots has resulted in RightBias launching a full page of winners and runners-up in our new weekly 'Idiots Of The Week Awards'. Check it out for more absurdities.
Till next week, keep smiling,
