Obama Must be Impeached: He’s Either Incompetent, or Purposely Failing

By Kelly O’Connell  Sunday, July 18, 2010

Is there a single American who secretly thinks Obama’s up to the task of the presidency? Or, does anyone believe Barack does not take bad situations and worsen them to magnify his power? These are rhetorical questions, of course. The only way Barack is an acceptable president is if you’re an opponent of America’s greatest achievements.

Impeach Obama and all the other bums destroying America and lets start fresh. America needs a new beginning and an end to this horrendous chapter of the last 21 years that just gets worst as the days pass! The hell with the N.W.O. and all that will profit from our enslavement, we’re Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

America’s new debtor prison: Jail time being given to those who owe

Martha C. White

Debtors prisons were federally abolished in the United States in the 1800’s, yet in certain states, they seem to be making a comeback. Out of Minnesota come disturbing reports of Americans being thrown in jail due to outstanding bills — sometimes for as little as $85. The Star-Tribune of Minneapolis profiles a number of people who say their debts got them jailed, including Joy Uhlmeyer a 57-year-old patient care advocate who was pulled over on her way home from visiting her elderly mother and put in jail for a night for missing a court hearing about unpaid debt.

The Star-Tribune reviewed the state’s court documents and found that arrests like Uhlmeyer’s are up 60% in Minnesota over the past four years. And Minnesota isn’t the only state where this is happening. It’s a turn of events Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director at advocacy group U.S. Public Interest Research Groups (or PIRG), calls a “very bad situation for consumers.” Mierzwinski attributes the practice to “bottom-feeder debt collectors [who] are very aggressive.”
People who are imprisoned for their debts are technically locked up for contempt of court after failing to appear for a hearing pertaining to their debt. It’s a legal loophole that debt-collection companies are increasingly using. Here’s how it works: First, the collections company files a lawsuit against the debtor, which requires them to appear in court. If the debtor doesn’t show up, the creditor wins a default judgment against them. This allows them to ask the court to schedule another hearing at which the judge can go through the debtor’s assets and determine if actions such as wage garnishments or bank account seizures can take place.

If the debtor doesn’t show up to that hearing, the hammer of justice can come down hard and fast. From there, the judge can order the debtor in contempt of court and issue a warrant for their arrest. If this seems unnecessarily punitive, the price to get out of jail is even more so, say consumer advocates: Generally, the judge sets the cost of bail at the amount of the disputed debt, an amount which is then turned over to the creditor.

“This is the private use of government resources to collect debt,” Pete Barry, partner at law firm Barry & Slade LLC, told Walletpop. One of Barry’s clients was arrested at her workplace for not filling out and sending back a form demanded by the creditor. The client, Barry says, suffered the humiliation of having to have her boss come to the jail and post a bond before she could be released. The bond money, he added, was turned over to the creditor. “They’re using the court system as their collection agent,” he says.

“There are big issues,” says Ira Rhinegold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates. “Minnesota isn’t the only place it’s happening, but it seems to be the worst. They’re leading the way,” he says, noting that NACA has heard similar stories out of Wisconsin, New Jersey, Arkansas and Washington.

Rhinegold tells Walletpop that some unscrupulous debt collectors never even send debtors the required notification that the case is being taken to court. Then the debtor fails to show up and the collector wins a default judgment, which can pave the way for imprisonment until they post their bond.

What’s behind all of this? “In some ways it stems from the growth of the debt buying industry,” says Rhinegold. Collection agencies buy debt for pennies on the dollar, then hire lawyers to chase after even the smallest amounts. Of all of the unfair aspects of this chain of events, advocates say the most galling is that, in many cases, consumers may not even be legally responsible for the debts for which they’re being jailed. In fact, the debt may not even be theirs, the amount may be inflated by penalties and attorney’s fees, and it’s almost certainly been written off by the original creditor — who then resold it for pennies on the dollar to a debt-collection firm that plays hardball to get money from consumers. Often, says Rhinegold, the collector doesn’t even have the paperwork that would prove that existence of the debt. In these cases, the judge will dismiss the case against the debtor. All the debtor had to do was show up for their day in court.

For this reason, Gail Hillebrand, financial services campaign manager at nonprofit Consumers Union, says it’s vitally important for consumers to respond if you get a letter threatening legal action and requiring a court appearance. The name of the collector can change because of how often debt is resold, she warns. So if you have an outstanding debt, don’t assume that a notice that seems to come from a different company than the original lender is junk mail. “The problem is that people don’t realize what it is,” she says.

It’s important to do some research first, though. If the debt isn’t yours, you can dispute it. Even if it is, showing up to court can sometimes lead to an outcome in your favor if the collector can’t prove you owe the debt. Either way, it will keep you from being hauled off in handcuffs. source

Wall Street reform that isn’t

Examiner Editorial
July 18, 2010

President Obama lauded Senate passage of the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul, saying that “because of this bill, the American people will never again be asked to foot the bill for Wall Street’s mistakes.” That statement is untrue. Instead of ending tax-paid bailouts of politically favored corporations that are “too big to fail,” Dodd-Frank makes the process permanent.

I don’t know whose worst the rambling fag or the crooked Dodd! How the hell these crooks get re-elected is the main reason we are in the mess we find ourselves in. They have so much power and like Barney said, we just will change the law to mean what ever we want it to. That was during the “too big to fail” bailouts, bunch of crooks!

Bill O’Reilly: NAACP should mimic president’s disdain for racial politics

By: Bill O’Reilly
Examiner Columnist
July 19, 2010

According to NAACP President Ben Jealous, the Tea Party is chock-full of racist people bent on harming African-Americans. Speaking at the organization’s annual convention this week, Jealous let loose on the tea folks: “Here comes the genetic descendant of the White Citizens Council, burst from its coffin, carrying signs and slogans like ‘Lynch Barack Hussein Obama.’ …”

An exhaustive search of media reportage on the Tea Parties turns up no mention of signs like that. And even if they existed, is it fair to demonize an entire movement because a few nuts are associated with it?

Does the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People want to be evaluated on that basis?

From the beginning of its ascent, the Tea Party has been targeted by the far left in America. They fear the populist movement because of its small-government philosophy and its successful activism.

President Obama,  Attorney General Holder and the Democrats are all about division. race is their primary tool to get people arguing with their true hopes of the crazies to get violent so that they can come down on us with the force of their iron fist.

Feds Ignore Due Process, 1st Amendment, Shut Down 1000′s of Blogs

Posted July 17th, 2010, by Moderator

Reprinted from – Infowars.com – By: Kurt Nimmo – July 17, 2010

Once again, the Obama administration has violated the Bill of Rights. Earlier this month, the feds took down a free WordPress blogging platform and disabled more than 73,000 blogs. The action was completely ignored by the corporate media. The site, Blogetery.com, was told by its hosting service that the government had issued orders to shut down the site due to a “a history of abuse” related to copyrighted material.

U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel and Vice President Joseph Biden introduce the government’s intellectual property enforcement strategy in June.
In late June, Joe Biden and Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel said the government would move to take down sites offering unauthorized movies and music. “Criminal copyright infringement occurs on a massive scale over the Internet, reportedly resulting in billions of dollars in losses to the U.S. economy,” said Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s office and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement launched “Operation In Our Sites” and executed seizure warrants against nine domain names.

Blogetery.com claimed the shut down of 73,000 blogs “was not a typical case, in which suspension and notification would be the norm. This was a critical matter brought to our attention by law enforcement officials. We had to immediately remove the server.”
“That seems odd,” notes Techdirt, a website that covers government policy, technology and legal issues. “If there was problematic content from some users, why not just take down that content or suspend those users. Taking down all 73,000 blogs seems… excessive.”
The DMCA’s takedown actions are a direct violation of the First Amendment under prior restraint. However, explains law professor Wendy Seltzer, because “DMCA takedowns are privately administered through ISPs… they have not received… constitutional scrutiny, despite their high risk of error.” Seltzer adds that “because DMCA takedown costs less to copyright claimants than a federal complaint and exposes claimants to few risks, it invites more frequent abuse or error than standard copyright law.”

TorrentFreak worries that the Blogetery.com case has set a precedent. “Fears remain… that this action is only the beginning, and that more sites will be targeted as the months roll on. Indeed, TorrentFreak has already received information that other sites, so far unnamed in the media, are being monitored by the authorities on copyright grounds,” writes a blogger on the site.

“They say it’s because of copyright infringement, but is it really?… it would seem that only sites/blogs which were streaming movies and TV shows were shut down initially, but upon further perusal, it seems like the Feds just arbitrarily shut down a server with several tens of thousands of bloggers on it without due process as is usual with this administration,” writes Smash Mouth Politics. “How soon before they find some reason to shut down other servers or networks? What’s probably infuriating to the bloggers who were shut down is that they have no recourse. They have no idea why the server was shut down. And the Feds are mum about it. Also, if the bloggers can even get a hold of the server admin, they’re refused any explanation of why.”

In October, 2004, more than 20 Independent Media Center websites and other internet services were taken offline, not in response to alleged copyright infringement but for political reasons. The disappearance of the Indymedia servers was shrouded in secrecy and the ISP and government would not provide an explanation. On October 20, 2004, the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a lawsuit in Texas and argued that “the public and the press have a clear and compelling interest in discovering under what authority the government was able to unilaterally prevent Internet publishers from exercising their First Amendment rights.”
It was later discovered that the ISP had shut down IndyMedia’s websites after they were contacted by the FBI. The FBI said a particular article on the website nantes.indymedia.org contained personal information and threats regarding two Swiss undercover police officers. It was later determined that the article contained neither threats nor names or address information and contained instead photographs of police agents provocateurs masquerading as anti-globalization protesters.

The Obama administration — in step with he Bush administration before it — does not have a problem ordering the government to violate the First, Fifth, and Tenth Amendments. In its declared effort to prevent online piracy of copyrighted material, the government has trashed the Bill of Rights. It has used the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to intimidate ISPs to shut down web sites.

In June, a Senate committee approved a dictatorial cybersecurity bill that would allow Obama to shut down the internet. The bill, known as the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, would grant Obama the authority to carry out emergency actions to protect critical parts of the internet, including ordering owners of critical infrastructure to implement emergency response plans, during a government declared cyber-emergency. Obama would supposedly need congressional approval to extend a national cyber-emergency beyond 120 days under an amendment to the legislation approved by the committee. Source

Note to NAACP: Tea Party Is NOT Racist

By: Deroy Murdock

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) on Tuesday unanimously adopted a resolution at its national convention in Kansas City condemning the Tea Party movement as — guess what?— racist.

This is false, outrageous, and no surprise.

The NAACP is like a talking GI Joe doll with a cord coiled into his back. Pull it, and GI Joe says something manly and combative. Pull the NAACP’s string. “Racism!” squawks the shopworn voice. Pull it again. “Bigotry!” it squeals, as it has so many times before.

The NAACP once was totally justified when it decried the racism and bigotry that the Jim Crow South’s Democratic-led governments mandated by law.

In 2010, however, screaming “racism” sounds increasingly delusional, given that America is governed by a black man who voters comfortably elected in November 2008 and wished well, largely across the political spectrum, on Inauguration Day, 2009…………………………

Black tea party candidate in Illinois calls out Democrats, NAACP (VIDEO) | Washington Times Communities.

This week, the NAACP issued a resolution calling out the Tea Party Movement for its racism. However, in Illinois of all places, it isn’t Tea Party activists who have been trying to keep an African American conservative off the ballot. It is the Democrat party machine. Instead, the Tea Party has united behind Cedra Crenshaw, who is only guilty of want to serve honestly and make Illinois (and America) a better place. Hear what she says first hand about Chicago Machine politics, the Tea Party movement, and what she really thinks of the NAACP’s resolution.

Special to the Tea Party Reports – Cedra Crenshaw’s Story

Cedra Crenshaw is a 37-year old mother of three who studied accounting at North Carolina A&T and wanted the people of Illinois to have real representation. How? She decided to run for public office.

In her quest to become a state senator this spring, Cedra worked very hard with volunteers to gather 2,100 nominating signatures, though only 1,000 signatures were needed. She personally gathered over 500 signatures by going door-to-door in her district. She would oppose current State Senator, A.J. Wilhelmi – who was appointed, not elected in 2005…….Read more at link above.

The NAACP has gone off the deep end. First they got mad at Hallmark for making a graduation card with a solar system theme that refers to “black holes.”  The NAACP said the card demeans black women.  Now they have declared the Tea Party movement racist. The NAACP seems to find racism all around them, but they can’t recognize their own!    Read more at link above
