August 29th is turning out to be more of an anniversary of sorts than I had realized. Like everyone else, I was looking at that date as the day Governor Sarah Palin was introduced to the world in Dayton, Ohio, the day I call "Sarah Palin's Coming Out Party." I wrote a little about that last night, and you can read it here or here if you missed it.
August 29th is also the Palins' wedding anniversary. They will be celebrating twenty one years of marriage this Saturday. From that union, as we all know, they have five beautiful children to love.
What I didn't realize, however, is that August 29th is also John McCain's birthday. I discovered that today when I received an email from Cindy McCain asking me to join thousands of others in signing an online birthday card for the senator. Once I have signed that card, the email asks, would I consider donating to his reelection campaign? Now this is the way a birthday party is supposed to go down. The honoree is supposed to receive gifts from others, not the other way around, right? So what John McCain is saying today is, "Hey, I gave all of you a priceless present last year, so I'm calling in the favor this year." That gift, of course, was Sarah Palin.
Hey, I don't fault the guy, do you? The party he threw us on his birthday in 2008 has amounted to the best party I've ever attended. Who can blame him for wanting to get a little something-something back from us this year?
You would think Barack Obama would have learned his lesson after his Alaska Mafia was unable to deter Sarah Palin, despite filing over 20 bogus "ethics complaints" all of which were dismissed as nonsense.
You see, instead of stopping Sarah Palin, Obama only caused Sarah Palin to turn over the power in Alaska to her trusted Lt Governor, who is following her agenda completely. And now Sarah has turned her attention to Barack Obama. As we have written before, the hunted is now the hunter.
Palin, an unconventional politician, has used her power to completely destroy Obama’s credibility in the health care debate. She wrote two short paragraphs on her Facebook page, and sent the democrat/communist party scrambling.
Contained within those two paragraphs were the words "death panels." Now, folks with common sense understood that Sarah was talking about the entire bill, which contains all sorts of provisions that will lead to health care rationing, and set up panels of "experts" that will decide who will get what kind of care. These are indeed "death panels" by any name you wish to officially call them.
Sarah Palin spoke at length in several of her hard hitting Facebook "op-eds," which received international coverage, of a Dr Ezekiel Emanuel. Dr Zeke is the brother of Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel. Dr Zeke is as close to Dr Joseph Mengele as we will ever see in the United States (hopefully)
Dr Zeke is really Dr Death. He has written that the elderly and the disabled do not deserve health care treatment at the same level as "productive citizens." In 1996 Dr. Death wrote this:
"This civic republican or deliberative democratic conception of the good provides both procedural and substantive insights for developing a just allocation of health care resources. Procedurally, it suggests the need for public forums to deliberate about which health services should be considered basic and should be socially guaranteed. Substantively, it suggests services that promote the continuation of the polity-those that ensure healthy future generations, ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public deliberations-are to be socially guaranteed as basic. Conversely, services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed. An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia. A less obvious example is guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason."
Sounds like something right out of Nazi Germany, huh?
Kim Priestap writes more that you can read here.
The New York Post wrote about Dr Death as well in a story entitled "Deadly Doctors" that you can read here.
One of the things discussed is how Dr. Death defends his insane ideas by saying this:
"Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years"
Now seriously, when you read this, do you think of a doctor, or some truly mad individual? Do you think this man should have the ear of the President of the United States, or should he be receiving some sort of inpatient mental health care?
Well, sadly, this guy, Dr Death, has the ear of the President of the United States.
And let's not forget the infamous VA "death book" that came in to being during the Clinton administration. President Bush suspended it's use, and now Obama has brought it back. You can read the book here.
Now Sarah Palin talked at length about all of this. We’ve talked at length about this. These are Dr Death’s own words.
But, in an attempt to silence all dissent, Barack Obama’s newest tactic is to send out the union thugs to attack people.
We’ve already seen the thugs from the Service Employees International Union, SEIU, a union that shares offices with and was founded by ACORN’s founders, attack peaceful citizens who disagree, at several townhall meetings. So it is no surprise that Obama’s union buddies would now try and attack Sarah Palin, the strongest voice in America against Obama.
Now it was Obama’s attempts at destroying Sarah Palin in Alaska that has caused his current situation with her. Sarah was very contented to go home to Alaska after the election, and govern, but Obama, sensing he had a serious competitor for America’s attention, and having marinated in Chicago thug politics, he thought he could take her down.
All I can say is he made an ever so slight miscalculation!
This is Sarah Palin we are talking about, not some two bit Chicago pol. Palin has had a lot more impressive figures attempt to intimidate her than Barack Obama! Just ask all of those from the Frank Murkowski administration that were taken down by Sarah, after her attempts to reform The AOGCC were stalled! Sarah Palin "quit" her powerful post, and took down all of Murkowski’s Republican "good old boy" network.
So who is this union thug group that wants to attack Sarah and how are they gonna do it?
Well, this group is called Americans United For Change. They are a 501c(4) "social welfare organization."
Now as our friends at Palination point out that while a 501c(4) "charity" may indeed participate in politics, so long as it is not their only activity. Well, as you can see from their website, Americans United For Change is only involved in politics, and nothing else!
Now this group that is likely running afoul of the IRS tax code, is basically using Sarah Palin as a fund raising tool. And they plan on attacking her, and her over 800,000 Facebook followers, by running ads, on Facebook as well as the internet.
So again, who are these people?
Well, the acting director is Tom McMahon. McMahon is the former Executive Director for the Democrat national Committee.
McMahon is in this position because the previous director Brad Woodhouse is now communications director for the Democratic National Committee. He was once communications director for USAction and also helped run Americans Against Escalation in Iraq.
Woodhouse is also a former lobbyist for the George Soros funded MoveOn.org.
Speaking of Soros, you should know that he helps fund Americans United For Change through his MoveOn.org group! Others who fund this group are the SEIU, and the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.
So really, my big question is how these union thugs can get away with seemingly violating the tax code? Sounds like something our fine folks in Congress should look at, huh?
What’s amazing, is all of the democrat/communists keep telling us that Sarah Palin is irrelevant. That she is just a distraction. When this fails, of course, as all democrat/communists are want to do, they throw out the insults. You’ve all heard ‘em. It’s all they got.
If Sarah Palin is so inconsequential, why does this union thug group see the need to run ads attacking her?
If Sarah Palin is so inconsequential, why is she stuck permanently in Barack Obama’s head? I mean he can’t stop talking about "death panels!" He can’t stop thinking about Sarah Palin!
It’s because she is not inconsequential. It’s because Sarah Palin is one of the few national leaders who can cut through the shuck and jive, and simply, concisely, distill it all down to simple terms that make sense. Sarah Palin is a no nonsense leader who has the ability to understand complicated issues and frame them in a way that they average man on the street can relate to, and appreciate.
And unlike most of our so-called leaders, Sarah Palin is not afraid to fight for America, to fight for freedom, to fight for liberty!
Like every other attack on Sarah Palin by Barack Obama and his thugs, this will backfire! The bloom is off the rose on Obama, America sees him for the empty suit, dysfunctional man that he is. Obama’s inability to lead is on daily display for all to see. The American people have lost all confidence in him. So attacking his rivals is only going to make him look even more desperate, and weak.
Now is the time for all good Americans to stand up to Obama and his thugs, and take our nation back. Get it back on track to prosperity. Regain our personal freedoms and liberty, and stop the insane growth of government.
Now is the time to stand up and let Obama and the democrat/communists know that their ideas are insane, and they will not be allowed to destroy America, the greatest nation this world has ever known!
Now is the time to be silent no more!
Demonizing histaria against Governor Palin comes from very fearful people who are trying to eradicate her triumphant strength & spirit. Her great moral understanding of how America must survive this onslaught of very biased weak left extremists. Her knowledge and experience in many endeavors especially in financing & exploring of oil and natural resources is very superior. I am sure she will have a great important future in our GOP. She is a great, great American.
Americans United for Change is going after Sarah Palin's FaceBook on Healthcare. Anyone want to know whose pocket the AUFC is in?
How can you support something when you are a Not-For-Profit but it is for a “Government that Works for All of Us”? Yet, they seem to keep lobby personnel at their beck and call.
Well when it is called American United for Change, it seems you can.They are running an ad, very soon from the sounds of it, due to Sarah Palin and her expose on Face Book concerning Healthcare.Now, I know a thing about or two about 501’s. They have to show ALL contributions that have been “sent in” to the IRS as well as the “members or volunteers” of their group. It is a yearly item and it IS mandatory. Also you can get the information from the IRS as it is a not-for-profit. So since it is a 501c4 who are they lobbying for and who is in their pocket?
This IS for political motive. What organization, in their right mind would go forward with HR3200? Heck even AARP is beginning to feel the effects.By the way Americans United for Change. If I contribute and then ask for a yearly (or maybe a year by year) statement….. Are you going to deny all of us?
Per the IRS:
To be tax-exempt as a social welfare organization described in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) section 501(c)(4), an organization must not be organized for profit and must be operated exclusively to promote social welfare. Pursuant to changes enacted as part of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights 2, the earnings of a section 501(c)(4) organization may not inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.
And what I like to hear about, per the IRS website on 501c4's:
However, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity. However, any expenditure it makes for political activities may be subject to tax under section 527(f).
I want to know who you “donate” your funds to, as you ARE known as a lobbying group. Who are you talking to up on the Hill? Anyone else want to see who these people talk to?
