When he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State, people finally woke up, but it was too late.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama Supporter, please recognize that you have elected a president who is a 'socialist'. There is simply no debate about these facts. But you need to seek the truth; you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there as well, but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth? Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he is currently waging an open war against. There must be a reason. He does not call them down on any specifics, and he has failed to refute any facts presented – because it is all true. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn't. Please, find the truth, it will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia or Iran; no, our biggest enemy is the current contingent of politicians in Washington DC led by the Progressive Left Liberals who support the previously mentioned things.

Wake Up America! There's still time in 2010 to take back America and send a message LOUD and CLEAR to those who think "it doesn't matter."

I happen to think "it does matter."

Does OCND know journalism ethics and standards? Or is she a propagandist serving some "Ministry of Truth," and practicing the Straussian "noble lie" against Obama, like the ironically named "Accuracy In Media" (AIM)?
Comment by Mark Davis on January 3, 2010 at 1:23pm
Does OCND actually believe the claims she posted are true?
Comment by OCNaturalDoc on January 3, 2010 at 12:59pm
your comment was that you didn't know who he was, so i backed it up with the link to the article...and who they're backed by. so spare me your nastiness.

and to your point, who's doing the 'refuting'? you???? LOLOL!!!!!
you sure can dish out the snarky remarks, but i don't see you backing your claims up.

oh, pacis....honestly! what's this about?
However, there is nothing in the list that was produced by Matt (whoever that is).
there's a bio of matt bruce at the top of the page to clue you in to his deal.

In support of my fellow firefighter, I would like to say that "It Matters" that we have the freedom to bring information of this kind to the attention of "We The People" for evaluation and discussion. I do not support
Matt's conclusions to all the information presented but, I am grateful for the opportunity to research some of
his ideas. I believe all people in the United States should take an active roll in understanding the operation of our government. We should all support the office of our President, but at the same time show that we
care what happens to our nation and that we are always watching and evaluating all actions taken.

Matt states that the information he has presented is easily documented and I for one will take some time to check it out. I am particularly interested in executive order #13489. I am curious as to why Obama is the first president to need such an order. That action is worthy of further review.

In conclusion, I commend people who stick their necks out to bring controversial information to the attention of others for evaluation.

I've encountered the same "It Doesn't Matter" disinformation on a number of websites. With your permission, Pacis Dream, I would like to post your responses to their tripe. Is there one continuous document with your "line item refutation," or would I need to cut & paste?
Comment by OCNaturalDoc on January 2, 2010 at 10:59am
Here's an old story -- I didn't write it, I don't manufacture computer chips and I don't dine privately with the President. That said, the story bears repeating and the moral lives on:

The Dinner Roll ...
Once upon a time I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President.

I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics.

There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a FREE country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was EARNED honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room.

We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served , and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen..

"Sorry 'bout that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."

"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass.

Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp. "And his brother, Eric, is very thirsty," said the President.

I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I withheld my comments and decided to play along. I don't want to seem unkind..

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.

"Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me.

I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room.

And their grandmother can't stand for long."

I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool. Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken.

I turned back to the President.

"Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."

I wanted to shout, "that was my coat!" But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled.

Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table.

I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home.

Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in. The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him.

"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a subprime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."

My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor.

The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak, and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that were water drops.

"By the way," he added , "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories.

I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind.

There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars..we need to spread YOUR wealth around..."

I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his crème Brule.

He drained the last drops of his wine. As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair.

He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if it were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss.

I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle.

Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us.

What had I done wrong?

As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.

"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said.

WAKE UP AMERICA !

Are these tired bullet points from July still being regurgitated? The inflexible do move slowly, but I'm still surprised we're still chewing this old cud. Added to Cpt.Matt's many impressive honors - for which, sincerely, he deserves kudos - I'm afraid we'll have the add the vaunted "Pants on Fire" award, wrested from the hands of Sarah Palin, its last recipient.

You will probably find that many of the anti-Obama falsehoods are pieces of an intentionally-crafted disinformation campaign, similar in style (if not in scope) to the anti-Iraq disinformation campaign that preceded the Iraqi War. Like most disinformation campaigns, each element contains a kernel of truth that is misrepresented to convey sinister intent. Some falsehoods, however, are fabricated out of thin air, like "Curveball's" fabrication of mobile weapons labs in Iraq. Misrepresenting the Davis-Obama relationship is just one card in the house of cards built to project an illusion of communist intent.

Spearheaded by Cliff Kincaid's ironically named "Accuracy In Media" (AIM), the disinformation campaign against the Obama-Davis relationship consisted of a series of small lies fabricated to support the big lie that "His values, passed on to Obama, were those of a communist agent who pledged allegiance to Stalin" (see http://www.aim.org/aim-column/media-excuse-obamas-false-advertising). A painstakingly documented analysis of Kincaid's falsehoods is posted as "specific misrepresentation" at http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/post/Kaleokualoha/gGxdvX. I invite any person of integrity to refute my evidence against his body of lies. If he had authentic evidence of Davis's radical influence, he would not need to fabricate such evidence.

"When Obama wrote a book and said he was mentored as a youth by Frank, (Frank Marshall Davis) an avowed Communist, people said it didn't matter."

Perhaps you should do some fact checking on your own, because you are wrong on both points. Obama never said he was mentored by Frank. Davis was a closet communist, not an "avowed communist." There is no evidence that Obama even knew of Davis's CPUSA connection.

Although Obama's book indicates "Frank" was a family friend who offered him advice on racial issues, Obama wrote that Davis "fell short" and his views were "incurable." Obama did not even visit Davis for three years before going to college. Obama's book, itself, proves that Obama did not consider Davis to be a "wise and trusted counselor," which is the definition of "mentor." By what creative definition can Davis be considered his "mentor"?

By exaggerating evidence that Davis advised Obama, yet ignoring evidence from the same source that Obama did NOT Frank to be a wise and trusted advisor, those who claim Davis was Obama's "mentor" are as dishonest as ex-D.A. Mike Nifong. The "Nifong Syndrome" is the stacking of evidence by ignoring evidence that does not fit one's agenda.

"The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas. The way to combat falsehoods is with truth." - William O. Douglas
