Link on some of the earmarks on a bill for THIS MONTH
www.magicvalley.com...

FOX news had speculated about 2.3 billion in earmarks from the defense bill.

No one else reporting it of course.

Will look for more information on this.

Sen. Thad Cochran’s most recent reelection campaign collected more than $10,000 from University of Southern Mississippi professors and staff members, including three who work at the school’s center for research on polymers. To a defense spending bill slated to be on the Senate floor Tuesday, the Mississippi Republican has added $10.8 million in military grants earmarked for the school’s polymer research.

Cochran, the ranking Republican on the Appropriations subcommittee on defense, also added $12 million in earmarked spending for Raytheon Corp., whose officials have contributed $10,000 to his campaign since 2007. He earmarked nearly $6 million in military funding for Circadence Corp., whose officers — including a former Cochran campaign aide — contributed $10,000 in the same period.

In total, the spending bill for 2010 includes $132 million for Cochran’s campaign donors, helping to make him the sponsor of more earmarked military spending than any other senator this year, according to an analysis by the nonprofit group Taxpayers for Common Sense.

Cochran says his proposals are based only on “national security interests,” not campaign cash. But in providing money for projects that the Defense Department says it did not request and does not want, he has joined a host of other senators on both sides of the aisle. The proposed $636 billion Senate bill includes $2.65 billion in earmarks.

President Obama has repeatedly promised to fight “the special interests, contractors and entrenched lobbyists” that he says have distorted military priorities and bloated appropriations in the past. In August, he told a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars that “if Congress sends me a defense bill loaded with a bunch of pork, I will veto it.”

Sorry, the man has yet to have told the truth once, so him telling a lie, is a lie.

Cotton Candy Words, Gumdrop Dreams, and Rainbow Smiles : Mr Obama's Sugar High

Obamaland : Cotton Candy, Gumdrops, and Rainbow Dreams, This is the Land of Collusion


Quote from : Wikipedia : Lie

Lying by omission

One lies by omission by omitting an important fact, deliberately leaving another person with a misconception.

Lying by omission includes failures to correct pre-existing misconceptions.

An example is when the seller of a car declares it has been serviced regularly but does not tell that a fault was reported at the last service.


Either the man does not know how to face reality, or believes America does not.

Everything coming out of his mouth is one lie after another, whether a lie by omission, through not stating facts to back up his statements, or a bold-faced lie through denial of facts that American's know because the lack of transparency.

My favorite one he tells is down on Wikipedia under See Also under number two, ironically as it is, it fulfills both the definition as well as the number.

great post, just another reason why pretty much everyone i know has resentment against this man. i am sure the obama disciples will come on and defend this man yet once again.

all i have to say is it has got to be getting hard to back this man, when almost everything that he says from his telepromters is fiction!!!

wanna bet he tries to blame these earmarks on Bush as well?

SpartanKing, the only time he has told the truth is in those youtube clips they are trying to hide. I agree.

tater, I also agree. He probably thinks we're too stupid to figure it out.

My biggest problem with Obama is the fact that his speeches are only about the potential of America and what it can become, which means he is putting the crux of our problems on the American citizens for not solving their own problems, and instead of doing his damn job he is pointing out that the citizens can make the change themselves which is ludicrous to say the least.

The Bailout Package both under Bush and Obama is nothing less than thievery of the American tax money, and giving it to the banks who have trillions of their own money.

I see zero common sense in the fact that money was given to bankers, to loan to American's who cannot afford their mortgages now, who cannot afford their car payments now, who cannot afford to feed their family now, who will not and cannot afford to get yet another loan now.

The man is full of crap and I'm tired of holding my nose to stop from smelling his stink.

Lied!?!? Obama!?!?
Well of course he did! That is what liars do, they lie. And do you want to know what idiots do? They vote for liars and then defend their lies. Something else he lied about - he stated in one of his gazillion public addresses that the healthcare bill would be debated on C-Span... Did anyone notice the CLOSED-DOOR session this week where they are debating the healthcare bill!?

Hope and change my ass. Transparency my ass.

I want to support Obama in this first sentence he did inherit a lot of problems. Now in this sentence he really hasn't done a lot to fix any problems granted he isn't fully in charge he should still be able to push his weight around some. He does pretty much own NBC MSNBC and ABC. Oh well nobody's perfect especially Obama and Co.

Ok you say you want to support Obama. Democrats/liberals/socialists are supposed to support the little guy, the "oppressed" worker, Right?

"one of the main purposes of the introduction of Socialism is an increase in the degree of freedom and self-determination, not a lessening of it." Link

Then how come as soon as the democrats are in control of the government, they start INCREASING the bureaucracy, decreasing our freedom, wraps us in red tape and make it harder and harder for the little guy to earn a living unless he becomes a "Wage Slave"

Also if Obama is for the little guy why did he put a Monsanto shill like Vilsack in as Sec of Ag instead of someone like Mike Pollan and why is he supporting plans to make it impossible for the little guy to grow food or granny to take a pie to the church supper. Heck if some of these bills go through, the government will be mandating MALNUTRITION! He even picked out Monsanto's Mike Taylor as a possible for the new Food Czar!



It’s enough to make you so queasy you lose your lunch. HR 875, the “Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009,” is a head-spinning piece of legislation that would radically change the structure of the US government’s regulatory agencies, usurping states rights to federalize food inspection and determine what agricultural practices are permissible. Considerable concern has been voiced about what this bill would mean for small and medium sized farmers, organic farming, the future of conventional and organic seeds, the food localization movement, and even home gardens. HR 875 would give regulators the power to enter private property, which is conveniently redefined as “premises,” and impose enormous fines for noncompliance.....

US law regulates supplements as food. But the pharmaceutical industry wants to change that and have supplements regulated as drugs, and bureaucrats like Mrs. Taylor are doing what they can to comply. Taylor argues that people are exposed to too many nutrients and wants to see the establishment of a one-size-fits-all international standard set that stipulates how much of each nutrient people need, a amount that in some cases is less than the already established recommended daily allowances.(11)....

...President Obama’s nominee for Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration Margaret Hamburg, MD, sits on the board of directors at the Trust for America’s Health. Hamburg, a well-connected player in the public health field, also serves on the board of directors of the Rockefeller Foundation. Among other things, the Rockefeller’s vast fortune is responsible for funding foundations and institutes that spread unsafe genetically-engineered food crops around the world.(4) Sadly, those who hoped that Obama’s election would herald positive changes have repeatedly found themselves duped: the deep corporate ties of his appointees guarantee a continuation of corporate control over the US government, a veritable concierge service on steroids for private interests.

A notable craftsman at the Trust for America’s Health is none other than the notorious Michael R. Taylor, JD. Taylor penned a paper included as an appendix of “Keeping America Safe: A Blueprint for Fixing the Food Safety System at the Department of Health and Human Services” called “Restructuring Food Safety at HHS: Design and Implementation.” In it, Taylor prescribes the creation of a new Food Safety Administration that consolidates all safety functions formerly performed by a host of other government regulatory agencies and institutes on a federal level the use of industry-friendly “risk assessment” methods.....

Most people who know Michael Taylor’s name recall that he worked as Monsanto’s lawyer at King & Spalding for years before being appointed to the FDA to oversee the swift introduction into the marketplace of GMOs. He did so by ramming through a faux scientific regulatory conceit called “substantial equivalence.”...


FDA scientists at the Division of Food Chemistry and Technology wanted to see testing performed to ensure that GMO foods didn’t increase levels of naturally occurring toxins, create new, previously unidentified toxins, increase the tendency to gather toxic substances from the environment such as pesticides or heavy metals, and alter the level nutrients.(6) Ignoring their scientific objections, the politically-appointed Taylor let loose GMO technology on the nation of guinea pigs without requiring any legitimate safety and toxicology investigations to protect public health. He also ensured that the public would remain ignorant of GMOs in their food by instituting a no-labeling policy. Now, almost 80% of the food sold in grocery stores contains GMOs. Monsanto subsequently rewarded Taylor for his government work by making him its Vice President of Public Policy....

Spartanking, I only cut your quote down because I'm tired of getting slammed for one-liners or quoting too much.
That being said, this post is the best one I've seen in awhile. I'm glad you threw in both administrations. Both of them were and are full of liars. Your sentiment about the potential of America and putting it on American citizens is sooooo true. Like we can do anything. Nope, we can't. The idea that we can is ludicrous. I'll find some time to change the country after working 45-50 hours and paying my bills.
I'm glad you didn't get partisan or talk about failed ideologies. You just stuck to the plain truth. Thank you.

Thank you.

I am not a partisan person, so me commenting is not about Republican or Democrat.

It is directly because of the person I speak about and their ability or failure to follow through.

I know we as a people can do certain things, I was never stating we cannot make a change for ourselves, but instead that the man who is in place to make the largest change for our nation, to open up jobs, to open up a lot opportunity, is doing just the opposite.

The Cult of the Presidency: America's Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power


Amazon Review :

The Bush years have given rise to fears of a resurgent Imperial Presidency. Those fears are justified, but the problem cannot be solved simply by bringing a new administration to power.

In his provocative new book, The Cult of the Presidency, Gene Healy argues that the fault lies not in our leaders but in ourselves.

When our scholars lionize presidents who break free from constitutional restraints, when our columnists and talking heads repeatedly call upon the "commander in chief " to dream great dreams and seek the power to achieve them--when voters look to the president for salvation from all problems great and small--should we really be surprised that the presidency has burst its constitutional bonds and grown powerful enough to threaten American liberty?

The Cult of the Presidency takes a step back from the ongoing red team/blue team combat and shows that, at bottom, conservatives and liberals agree on the boundless nature of presidential responsibility.

For both camps, it is the president's job to grow the economy, teach our children well, provide seamless protection from terrorist threats, and rescue Americans from spiritual malaise.

Very few Americans seem to think it odd, says Healy, "when presidential candidates talk as if they're running for a job that's a combination of guardian angel, shaman, and supreme warlord of the earth."

Healy takes aim at that unconfined conception of presidential responsibility, identifying it as the source of much of our political woe and some of the gravest threats to our liberties.

If the public expects the president to heal everything that ails us, the president is going to demand--or seize--the power necessary to handle that responsibility.

Interweaving historical scholarship, legal analysis, and trenchant cultural commentary, The Cult of the Presidency traces America's decades-long drift from the Framers' vision for the presidency: a constitutionally constrained chief magistrate charged with faithful execution of the laws.

Restoring that vision will require a Congress and a Court willing to check executive power, but Healy emphasizes that there is no simple legislative or judicial "fix" to the problems of the presidency.

Unless Americans change what we ask of the office--no longer demanding what we should not want and cannot have--we'll get what, in a sense, we deserve.


I highly suggest everyone read that book.

I am not asking Obama to fix every problem, however, I am asking the man to quit mis-spending our money by giving it away to the banks, the car industry, and the false failures who are seeking a hand-out, those industries have trillions, stuck away in research and development, or in various other areas and us citizens do not and I am not asking for a hand-out from the man, I'd refuse it if he offered it, instead he should have already started creating jobs and tax incentives to American's.

No more pork in our bills and no more money thrown down the drain for uselessness.

It took years for you to realize that bush "may" have lied. Not that he did lie?

If somebody is in politics they lie. Even Ron Paul tells lies. Thats how you get in the business. Sometimes they dont even know they are telling lies, they say what they believe in until they are reminded they will be removed if they dont change what they believe in and play by the big dogs gameplans.
