Obama Health Care

Noudat die Obama -gesondheidsorgplan by die wet aangeneem is, lyk dit asof meer Amerikaners ten gunste van die plan is. Voordat dit op 23 Maart deur president Obama by die wet aangemeld is, het dit gelyk asof 'n groot persentasie Amerikaners teen die Obama -gesondheidsplan was. Nou lyk dit asof baie mense die wetgewing 'n goeie eerste stap noem, wat gevolg moet word deur meer aksie.

Alhoewel dit lyk asof meer Amerikaners ten gunste van die huidige wet is, is daar nog steeds baie wat verdeeld is oor die wetgewing oor gesondheidsorg wat die huis skaars goedgekeur het. Uit 'n opname deur USA Today/Gallup Poll is bevind dat 31%, byna 'n derde van diegene wat ondervra is, meen dat die wetsontwerp die verkeerde tipes veranderinge aanbring. Ongeveer 'n maand gelede is 'n opname deur USA Today gedoen oor die Obama -gesondheidsplan. Tussen die opname en die mees onlangse het 'n merkbare verskuiwing na ondersteuning van die wetsontwerp plaasgevind onder minderhede, Amerikaners met 'n lae inkomste en individue jonger as 40 jaar.

Met die nuwe wet op gesondheidsorg sal veranderinge aangebring wordoor die volgende paar jaar. Baie mense is bekommerd oor bestaande toestande en of dit onder die Obama-gesondheidsplan gedek sal word al dan nie. Vanaf hierdie jaar sal toegang tot gesondheidsversekering beskikbaar wees vir diegene met 'n toestand wat reeds ses maande lank onversekerd was. 'N Hoë-risiko-poel is 'n program wat voorsiening maak

Es versekering vir Amerikaners wat nie 'n gesondheidsversekering het nie, maar wat reeds 'n toestand het. Hoë-risiko poele bied bekostigbare versekering wat tydelik is tot die jaar 2014, wanneer die Obama-gesondheidsorgplan versekeringsmaatskappye sal verhinder om dekking te weier weens voorafgaande toestande.

Die Obama-gesondheidsorgplan bied aan individue op Medicare die geleentheid om deel te neem aan gratis voorkomende sorg vanaf 1 Januarie 2011. Hierdie maatreël beteken dat diegene wat op Medicare is, voorkomende dienste kan hê wat nie onderhewig is aan bybetalings nie en kan hierdie dienste vrystel van aftrekbaar is. 'N Verdere voordeel is die feit dat jongmense na ses maande van inwerkingtreding onder hul gesondheidsplanne tot hul 26ste verjaardag kan bly, en dat sekere bestaande planne mense van hierdie ouderdomsgroep kan laat grootvader.

Huisspreker Nancy Polosi het tydens 'n seremonie in Capitol Hill die verklaring gemaak dat die aanvaarding van hierdie wetsontwerp 'n geweldige verskil in die lewens van Amerikaners maak. was nie so bly oor die Obama -gesondheidsplan soos Polosi nie, en verklaar dat dit 'n moeilike oomblik vir miljoene was. ”

Of dit nou politici of alledaagse Amerikaanse burgers is, president Obama voel dat sodra mense besef wat die wet op gesondheidsorg werklik bevat en hoe dit werk, diegene met 'n negatiewe houding daaroor, hul deuntjie sal verander. Hy het gesê: Van hierdie dag af, al die sinici, al die naysayer, sal hulle die werklikheid moet konfronteer van wat hierdie hervorming is en wat dit nie is nie. ” Die president het gesê dat alle mense teen die Obama -gesondheidsplan uiteindelik sal besef dat dit nie 'n oorname van die gesondheidsorgstelsel is nie.

Alhoewel baie Amerikaners die Obama -gesondheidsplan in 'n meer positiewe lig sien, is daar steeds baie wat nie gelukkig is dat die wetsontwerp goedgekeur is nie. Noudat dit wet is, lyk dit asof almal daarmee moet saamleef, of hulle nou wil of nie.

Wetgewende loopbaan: 1997–2008

Staatsenator: 1997–2004

Obama is in 1996 verkies tot die senaat van Illinois, as opvolger van die staatsenator Alice Palmer as senator van die 13de distrik van Illinois, wat op daardie stadium die buurte van Chicago South Side van Hyde Park - Kenwood suid na South Shore en wes na Chicago Lawn. [45] Nadat hy gekies is, het Obama tweeledige steun gekry vir wetgewing wat die etiek- en gesondheidsorgwette hervorm. [46] Hy het 'n wet geborg wat belastingkrediete verhoog vir werknemers met 'n lae inkomste, onderhandel oor hervorming van welsyn en bevorder verhoogde subsidies vir kindersorg. [47] In 2001 het Obama, as medevoorsitter van die gesamentlike tweeledige komitee oor administratiewe reëls, die Republikeinse goewerneur Ryan ’s se regulasies vir betaallenings en roofregulasies vir verbandlenings gesteun met die doel om huisafskermings te voorkom. [48]

Obama is in 1998 herkies tot die Senaat van Illinois, wat die Republikein Yesse Yehudah in die algemene verkiesing verslaan het, en is weer herkies in 2002. [49] In 2000 verloor hy 'n Demokratiese primêre verkiesing vir die Amerikaanse Huis van Verteenwoordigers aan die posbekleër van Bobby Spoed met 'n marge van twee tot een. [50]

In Januarie 2003 word Obama voorsitter van die komitee vir gesondheid en menslike dienste van die Senaat in Illinois, toe die Demokrate, na 'n dekade in die minderheid, 'n meerderheid herwin het. [51] Hy het eenparige, tweeledige wetgewing geborg en gelei om rasse -profilering te monitor deur die polisie te verplig om die wedloop van bestuurders wat hulle aangehou het, op te neem, en wetgewing wat Illinois die eerste staat maak wat video -opnames van moordondervragings opdrag gee. [47] [52] Tydens sy algemene verkiesingsveldtog vir die Amerikaanse senaat in 2004 het polisieverteenwoordigers Obama erkenning gegee vir sy aktiewe betrokkenheid by polisie -organisasies om hervormings van die doodstraf uit te voer. [53] Obama bedank uit die senaat van Illinois in November 2004 na sy verkiesing tot die Amerikaanse senaat. [54]

Amerikaanse Senaat veldtog

County resultate van die Amerikaanse senaatwedloop in 2004 in Illinois. Lande in blou is deur Obama gewen.

In Mei 2002 het Obama 'n peiling laat doen om sy vooruitsigte te beoordeel in 'n Amerikaanse senaatwedloop van 2004. Hy het 'n veldtogkomitee geskep, begin om geld in te samel en het teen Augustus 2002 'n politieke mediakonsultant David Axelrod opgestel en sy kandidatuur formeel aangekondig in Januarie 2003. [55 ]

Obama was 'n vroeë teenstander van die inval van die George W. Bush -administrasie in 2003 deur Irak. [56] Op 2 Oktober 2002, die dag waarop president Bush en die kongres ooreengekom het oor die gesamentlike resolusie wat die Irak-oorlog magtig, [57] het Obama die eerste opspraakwekkende byeenkoms in Chicago teen Irak toegespreek [58] en hom uitgespreek teen die oorlog. [59] Hy het in Maart 2003 nog 'n teenoorlogse byeenkoms toegespreek en aan die skare gesê dat dit nie te laat is om die oorlog te stop nie. [60]

Besluite deur die huidige Republikeinse Peter Fitzgerald en sy Demokratiese voorganger, Carol Moseley Braun, om nie aan die verkiesing deel te neem nie, het gelei tot wyd oop Demokratiese en Republikeinse primêre wedstryde waarby vyftien kandidate betrokke was. [61] In die primêre verkiesing in Maart 2004 wen Obama in 'n onverwagte grondverskuiwing - wat hom oornag 'n opkomende ster in die nasionale Demokratiese Party gemaak het, begin bespiegel het oor 'n presidensiële toekoms en gelei het tot die heruitgawe van sy memoires, Drome van My Vader. [62] In Julie 2004 het Obama die hoofrede gehou tydens die Demokratiese Nasionale Konvensie van 2004, [63] wat deur 9,1 miljoen kykers gesien is. Sy toespraak is goed ontvang en verhoog sy status binne die Demokratiese Party. [64]

Obama se verwagte teenstander in die algemene verkiesing, die Republikeinse primêre wenner Jack Ryan, onttrek hom aan die wedloop in Junie 2004. [65] Ses weke later aanvaar Alan Keyes die Republikeinse benoeming om Ryan te vervang. [66] In die algemene verkiesing in November 2004 wen Obama met 70 persent van die stemme. [67]

Amerikaanse senator: 2005-2008

Obama het op 28 Oktober 2006 'n toespraak gelewer by die Universiteit van Suid -Kalifornië.

Obama is op 3 Januarie 2005 as senator beëdig, [68] en word die enigste lid van die Senaat van die Congressional Black Caucus. [69] CQ Weekly het hom gekenmerk as 'n lojale demokraat, gebaseer op 'n ontleding van alle stemme van die Senaat in 2005-2007. Obama het op 13 November 2008 aangekondig dat hy op 16 November 2008, voor die aanvang van die kreupel sessie, sy senaatstoel sou bedank om hom te toespits op sy oorgangstydperk vir die presidentskap. [70]

Wetgewing

Obama het die Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act ondersteun. [71] Hy het twee inisiatiewe met sy naam bekendgestel: Lugar - Obama, wat die konsep van vermindering van bedreigings in die koepel van Nunn - Lugar uitgebrei het na konvensionele wapens [72] en die Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act van 2006, wat die oprigting van USAspending.gov gemagtig het , 'n soekenjin vir federale uitgawes. [73] Op 3 Junie 2008 het senator Obama-saam met senatore Tom Carper, Tom Coburn en John McCain-opvolgwetgewing ingestel: versterking van deursigtigheid en aanspreeklikheid in die federale bestedingswet van 2008. [74]

Obama het wetgewing geborg wat sou vereis dat eienaars van kernkragaanlegte die staat en die plaaslike owerhede in kennis moet stel van radioaktiewe lekkasies, maar die wetsontwerp het nie in die volle senaat goedgekeur nie nadat dit sterk in die komitee gewysig is. [75] Met betrekking tot die hervorming van skadevergoeding, het Obama gestem vir die Class Action Fairness Act van 2005 en die FISA Amendements Act van 2008, wat immuniteit verleen teen burgerlike aanspreeklikheid aan telekommunikasiemaatskappye wat meedoen aan die NSA sonder om op te luister. [76]

Obama en die Amerikaanse senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) besoek 'n Russiese fasiliteit vir die aflaai van missiele vir missiele in Augustus 2005. [77]

In Desember 2006 onderteken president Bush die wet op die bevordering van hulp, veiligheid en demokrasie in die Demokratiese Republiek van die Kongo, wat die eerste federale wetgewing is wat met Obama as die hoofborg ingestel is. [78] In Januarie 2007 het Obama en senator Feingold 'n korporatiewe straalbepaling bekendgestel aan die Wet op eerlike leierskap en openbare regering, wat in September 2007 op die wet onderteken is. [79] Obama het ook die Wet op die voorkoming van bedrieglike praktyke en stembekamping, 'n wetsontwerp, ingestel. om misleidende praktyke by federale verkiesings, [80] en die Irakoorlog-de-eskalasiewet van 2007, [81] te kriminaliseer, nie een van die twee is by die wet onderteken nie.

Later in 2007 het Obama 'n wysiging van die Wet op Verdedigingstoestemming geborg, wat voorsorgmaatreëls vir militêre ontslag van persoonlikheidsversteuring toevoeg. [82] Hierdie wysiging het die volle senaat in die lente van 2008 goedgekeur. [83] Hy het die Iran-sanksiewet ondersteun wat die verkoop van staatspensioenfondse uit die olie- en gasbedryf van Iran ondersteun, wat nie deur die komitee en mede-geborgde wetgewing geslaag is nie. om die risiko's van kernterrorisme te verminder. [84] Obama het ook 'n Senaat-wysiging aan die Gesondheidsversekeringsprogram van die Staat se kinders geborg, wat een jaar werksbeskerming bied vir familielede wat sorg vir soldate met gevegsverwante beserings. [85]

Komitees

Obama het tot en met Desember 2006 opdragte in die senaatskomitees vir buitelandse betrekkinge, omgewing en openbare werke en veterane gedoen. [86] In Januarie 2007 verlaat hy die komitee vir omgewings- en openbare werke en neem bykomende opdragte met Gesondheid, Onderwys, Arbeid en Pensioene en tuisveiligheid en regeringsake. [87] Hy word ook voorsitter van die Senaat se subkomitee oor Europese aangeleenthede. [88] As lid van die Senaatskomitee vir buitelandse betrekkinge het Obama amptelike reise na Oos -Europa, die Midde -Ooste, Sentraal -Asië en Afrika onderneem. Hy het met Mahmoud Abbas vergader voordat Abbas president van die Palestynse nasionale owerheid geword het, en 'n toespraak gehou by die Universiteit van Nairobi waarin korrupsie binne die Keniaanse regering veroordeel word. [89]


Waarom sal president Obama of Hillary nie vir oproeriges sê om op te hou nie?

Ek sal jou die voordeel van die twyfel gee, en aanvaar dat jy nie lieg nie, maar net 'n dunce.

Volgens ds Al Sharpton, wat gereeld saam met die Brown -gesin in St. Louis verskyn het en 'n toespraak gehou het tydens die begrafnis van mnr. het geweet ons bepleit. Hy het gesê dat hy hoop dat ons alles in ons vermoë doen om vrede te bewaar. ”

U herken dit. nie jy nie?

Hy is 'n linkses. geweld is hul taal.

Georges Eugène Sorel (2 November 1847 in Cherbourg-29 Augustus 1922 in Boulogne-sur-Seine) was 'n Franse filosoof en teoretikus van revolusionêre sindikalisme.

1. Ek reageer direk en kragtig.
Ek kan mooier wees as jy slimmer kan wees.

2. Ek het niks gesê nie. niks nie. oor enige voorspelling van 'n Trump -presidentskap ..
ek het ook nie geglo nie.

. Die feit is dat ek baie bekommerd is oor dieselfde, want elke vyand wat hy tydens die veldtog gehad het, sal alles in hul vermoë doen om hom te weerhou om dinge te doen wat tot voordeel van die Amerikaanse volk sal styg.

3. Laat ons almal onthou dat Obama gesê het toe hy gewen het:
President Obama het Vrydagoggend tydens 'n vergadering met die leiers van die kongres na die Republikeinse klagtes oor sy stimuleringspakket geluister - maar hy het ook geen twyfel gelaat oor wie in beheer is van hierdie onderhandelinge nie.

Dit is vir my interessant dat ons bereid is om 33,000 sterftes as 'n ongelukkige byproduk van die 2de wysiging te aanvaar.

Maar breek 'n paar vensters as 'n neweproduk van die eerste wysiging, en almal verloor hul kop (voeg Joker meme in).

1) Dit is vir my interessant dat LW-antigunners dink dat die verbod op gewere selfmoord sal stop. Laat ons nie vergeet dat slegs 40 000 Amerikaners elke jaar selfmoord pleeg nie. Ongeveer die helfte hiervan is met 'n vuurwapen, wat die geskreeu van die geweer teen die geweer en die geweer teen die geweer en die berugte misleidende "33,000 sterftes en die aantal" ernstig ondermyn.

2) Meer as 30 000 Amerikaners sterf jaarliks ​​aan motorongelukke, ongeveer die helfte waarby alkohol betrokke is, maar nie 'n enkele LW-vuurwapen is 'n fok oor die sterftes nie. Geen eis om privaat motors of alkohol te verbied nie.

3) Betogings is goed en 'n eerste wysiging reg. Dit gee nie mense die reg om ander hul regte te ontneem, eiendom te vandaliseer, brandstigting, moord of enige ander misdaad te pleeg nie. Die feit dat u hulle ondersteun, sê meer oor u kriminele neigings as u steun aan die Grondwet.


Ses en tagtig artikels van beskuldiging teen Obama

Daar is 'n toenemende toename in die geledere van die Amerikaanse Republikeinse en Tea Party dat vervolgingsverrigtinge teen president Obama moet begin oor 'n hele lys van oortredings van die Grondwet en die Wet op Oorlogsmagte.

Kongreslede Allen-Wes van Florida (R-Florida) en Darrell Issa (R-Kalifornië) het die president deurlopend en hard gekritiseer omdat hy die politieke punt oortref en die goedkeuring van die kongres oor 'n hele reeks twyfelagtige beleid en kwessies omseil het: en die onlangse Obama-aanval op die Hooggeregshof en die Russiese en Oop Mikrofoon oor Nasionale Veiligheid, lei tot een vraag: maak Barack Obama sy eie saak vir beskuldiging? Obama het nie die Demokratiese genomineerde vir president geword sonder die hulp van verskeie leiers van die Demokratiese Party wat geweet het dat hy nie in aanmerking kom nie

Hieronder is die ses en tagtig artikels van beskuldiging.

1. Aanstelling van 'n & ldquoshadow -regering & rdquo van ongeveer 35+ individue genaamd & ldquoczars & rdquo wat nie deur die Senaat bevestig word nie en slegs op die president reageer, maar tog oorhoofse regulerende bevoegdhede het en 'n duidelike skending van die konsep van skeiding van magte het. Obama het die senaat omseil met baie van sy aanstellings van meer as 35 ldquoczars. & Rdquo

2. Geen kongressteun vir Libiese optrede nie (oortreding van die Wet op Oorlogsmagte). Obama het vir die Amerikaanse volk gelieg toe hy gesê het dat daar geen Amerikaanse troepe op die grond in Libië was nie en later gesê het dat hulle slegs lkwologiese troepe is.

3. Verraad van bondgenote (Israel en Groot -Brittanje. Obama het die veiligheid van ons mees vertroude bondgenoot in die Midde -Ooste, Israel, in gevaar gestel terwyl hy geld aan die Palestynse Owerheid (Fatah, net nog 'n Islamitiese terreurgroep) vergroot het terwyl hulle beveel het 'n versoeningsooreenkoms met die jarelange terreurgroep Hamas en die bekendmaking van Britse kerngeheime aan die Russe in die Start-verdrag. Obama het missielkodes aan Britse Trident-missiele aan Rusland gegee.

4. Agterdeur implementering van die DROOMwet wat 22 miljoen onwettige amnestie sou verleen. Obama het die Dream Act deur middel van 'n uitvoerende bevel aangeneem en die kongres weer omseil. DROOM is: Ontwikkeling, verligting en opvoeding vir vreemdelinge

5. Telegrafeer troepe -vermindering aan vyande en kom teen die raadpleging van sy ervare veldkommandante en onderhandel onderhandelinge met ons vyand, die Taliban, en erken 'n ander, die Moslem -broederskap.

6. Verraad van Arizona. Obama het 'n federale regsgeding teen 'n soewereine staat, Arizona, ingestel om sy burgers te beskerm teen hierdie bedreiging van massa -onwettige immigrasie

7. Obama & rsquos Versuim om die Amerikaanse wet, die Defense of Marriage Act, af te dwing. Hy en rsquos het Amerika van sy morele basis gestroop deur sy steun vir homoseksualiteit en die aanval op die huwelik tussen 'n man en 'n vrou wat Obama die DOJ toelaat om te weier om die Wet op die Verdediging van Huwelik af te dwing.

8. Ondersteuning van 'n onbekwame en onbevoegde prokureur-generaal wat versuim het om 'n saak van intimidasie van kiesers te vervolg (New Black Panther Party), het 'n gevaarlike wapensmokkelprogram (Operation Fast and Furious) begin en het gelei tot die dood van een van ons eie wetstoepassers agente. Obama het toegelaat dat Operation Fast and Furious plaasvind, waardeur honderde Mexikaanse onderdane en grensagent Brian Terry vermoor kon word met onwettige wapens wat deur die ATF en DOJ uitgedeel is.

9. Verhoog die regulatoriese las op Amerikaanse sake deur die wetgewende proses te omseil met sy uitvoerende takagentskappe, soos die Environmental Protection Agency en die Food and Drug Administration.

10. Versuim om die nodige stappe te neem om ons grense te beveilig en die vloei van onwettige immigrasie, wat in die Grondwet van die Verenigde State in ons Grondwet in die Verenigde State in Indië genoem word, te stuit en Obama nie daarin slaag om Amerikaanse grond te verdedig nie Arizona, terwyl Mexikaanse troepe onwettiges en dwelms na die VSA bring en die grens oorsteek. Dit is 'n direkte oortreding van artikel IV, afdeling 4 van die Grondwet.

11. Dit is onvanpas om die vrystelling van strategiese oliereserwes te beveel en Brasilië $ 2 miljard vir sy buitelandse olie -eksplorasie te voorsien.

12. Onwettig om geld binne die Withuis te werf ($ 5 aandete vir video -insameling). Die onvervreembare regte wat ons deur die Skepper se lewe, vryheid en die strewe na geluk (nie waarborg) na geluk en ndash toegedien word, word bedreig deur die Obama -administrasie. Hierdie huidige regering het die toestemming van die regerings verkort en dat wanneer enige regeringsvorm vernietigend vir hierdie doel word. Dit is die reg van die mense om dit te verander of af te skaf.

13. Die hooggeregshof en die bevoegdheid van geregtelike hersiening aanvaar met 'n voorkomende staking teen regters wat 'n ongunstige uitspraak oor ObamaCare kan oorweeg.

14. & rdquoOpen Mic & rdquo gaffe waarin hy die Russiese president, Dimitri Medvedev, verduidelik het dat hy meer buigsaamheid het om Amerikaanse veiligheid op te offer na sy herverkiesing

15. Afskrifte van Occidental College onthul dat Obama geëis het dat hulle buitelandse burgerskap het om beurs te kry? http://tinyurl.com/czldzx8

16. Obama en rsquos se geheime terugkanaalkernooreenkoms met Iran, 'n beëdigde vyand van Amerika en ons bondgenote

17. Obama en rsquos bied 'n sitplek aan tafel vir ons toegewyde vyand, die Taliban

On 20 March 2002 Ibn al-Khattab who during the Second Chechen War participated in leading his militia against Russian forces in Chechnya, as well as managing the influx of foreign fighters and money was killed when a Dagestani messenger hired by the Russian FSB gave Khattab a poisoned letter. Chechen sources said that the letter was coated with "a fast-acting nerve agent, possibly sarin or a derivative". [22]

On 13 February 2004 Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev who served as acting president of the breakaway Chechen Republic of Ichkeria between 1996 and 1997, was killed when a bomb ripped through his SUV in the Qatari capital, Doha.

A dentist, Dr. Thabet was also a friend of many Israeli peace activists and considered one himself. Israeli activists called the killing "a crime," "Mafia-style," and "immoral." Ephraim Sneh, then Israeli Deputy Prime Minister, described the policy as "effective, precise and just." [57]

Die Washington Post commented that Israeli policy of targeted killing during the Second Intifada expanded upon previous policies, targeting not only terrorists but also those thought to direct or coordinate them. [57] Another controversial killing, which occurred following the Bush Administration's condemnation of the practice, was that of Mahmoud Madani, a leader of Hamas shot while leaving a mosque in the Balata refugee camp.

Then Democratic Party senator Joseph Biden criticized the George W. Bush Administration for condemning the targeted killings the administration continued to oppose them. [61]


Obama's Drilling Plans Increase US Dependence on Foreign Energy (Pt. 2)-A Political Opening For GOP

On April 1st President Obama announced the expansion of oil and gas exploration off the coast of the southern US and in the Gulf of Mexico. In the same policy address, he made another announcement, one that raises concerns about America’s energy future. He declared off-limits Alaska’s northern coast, an area that studies have shown can supply America with a prodigious amount of oil and natural gas for years to come.

e360.yale.edu/content/feature.msp?id=2086

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar says Obama terminated energy development in these areas because of the "unanswered questions" about the environmental impact of drilling in the region’s Chukchi and Beaufort seas.. Salazar insists we need to engage in “the kind of scientific gathering that will give us the answers to some key questions." Geologists think such a rationale unsatisfactory. They contend that prior research has already determined that drilling will not harm the natural environment.

Salazar cited another quite different reason for not drilling off Alaska’s north coast. The Alaska region, he claims, is simply not as productive as everyone thinks! Such a conclusion would seem to fly in the face of an exhaustive 2008 US Geological Survey report which estimated that the Arctic Circle region holds 1.6 quadrillion ( 1600 trillion) cubic feet of undiscovered gas, 30% of the world's supply, and 83 billion barrels of undiscovered oil, 13% of the world's total.

Salazar believes that there is only the equivalent of 3 billion barrels of “economically recoverable” oil, loosely defined as oil worth the price per barrel to pursue.

Since the Obama speech the administration has moved to restrict drilling elsewhere. In response to complaints from environmentalists, the Bureau of Land Management announced it was going to delay a scheduled oil and natural gas lease sale in Montana and North and South Dakota to study the impact of potential greenhouse gases. Die American Petroleum Institute says that this decision to factor greenhouse gases into the leasing decision takes BLM into “unchartered territory " and will delay or prevent much-need investment and development in the region.

The Administration is offering little hope that it will ever approve energy development of another major oil and gas repository, the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. "The fact of the matter is that the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge is not on the map for exploration or development," Secretary Salazar said recently. "It never has been under President Obama.”

Obama clearly believes that we do not have to tap into our huge oil and gas reserves to solve our energy problems. He devoted much of his speech to praising alternative “clean and green” energy sources such as biomass, hybrid cars and advanced batteries. Delivering his address in an Air Force hangar, Obama directed the audience’s attention to a nearby fighter plane that “will be the first plane ever to fly faster than the speed of sound on a fuel mix that is half biomass.” If the Air Force can run on biofuels, Obama reasoned, so can the nation’s factories and homes.

The political ramifications of Obama’s decisions are enormous. The price at the gas pump has jumped from $2.00 to $3.00 since Barack Obama assumed the presidency. Political opponents will be quick to link any further increases in the price of gas to Obama’s unwillingness to tap into the Alaskan energy cornucopia. They will also point out that his decision to limit drilling in the nation’s Outer Continental Shelf will cost Americans jobs at a time when we desperately need job creation. Volgens die American Energy Alliance, opening the OCS will create

1.2 million jobs annually across the country and increase the GDP by $8 trillion.

From now until November, the GOP will most certainly remind Americans that the President is refusing to take the actions necessary to reduce energy dependence, lower gas prices, create jobs,

and shrink the national debt. A few days after the speech former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin , speaking at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, mockingly described Obama’s drilling pronouncement as “stall baby stall,” not “drill baby drill.” At their national rallies the various Tea Parties slammed Obama’s reluctance to drill in the OCS and elsewhere. Libertarians, a growing force in both major parties, have broadened the debate to one over whether the Federal government is overstepping its Constitutional authority in telling states and private businesses where they can and cannot drill for oil, gas, and other minerals.

The President is correct that the US must develop a new generation of fuel sources. Unfortunately, biomass and windmills will not power the factories, cities, and homes of the American nation whose population will expand to 400 million by 2050. We must instead develop 21st century energy sources such as nuclear fusion, wireless energy technologies, as well as clean coal. We must also aggressively drill for the oil and natural gas in our Outer Continental shelf.

Without a pro-growth “expansionary” energy policy, the US cannot retain its position as global economic, political, and military leader.


The influence of Maoist thought

A deep strain of Maoist Thought has pervaded Barack Obama's influences throughout his life and persisted in appointments he has made as President.

SDS veteran and Progressives for Obama webmaster [57] Carl Davidson first met Barack Obama through the Chicago New Party, whose endorsement and campaign workers Obama sought and accepted in his run for the Illinois state senate in 1996. Davidson organized the October 2002 rally at Federal Plaza in Chicago [58] where Obama was established as a chief spokesperson for anti-US foreign policy. Davidson was a leading member of the October League (OL) and the Communist Party (Marxist-Leninist), or CP(M-L) [59] hailed by Chinese Communist Party chairman Hua Guofeng at banquet for CP(M-L) leaders in Beijing in 1977 as the semi-official Maoist party in the United States. Hua Guofeng declared the founding of the CP(ML) a “new victory of the Marxist-Leninist Movement in the U.S.” [60] Davidson is a longtime supporter of the VVAW [61] whose chief spokesman John Kerry charged American servicemen with war crimes. The VVAW worked in collusion with North Vietnam and the Vietcong to organize a domestic insugency [62] and the defeat of the United States in Vietnam. [63] In 2004 Davidson said, "the U.S government, at least over the past 50 years, has been the chief terrorist and sponsor of terrorism in the world." [64]

Obama appointed Anita Dunn as White House Communications Office Director in April 2009. In June 2009 Dunn publicly declared herself, before a group of high students, to be a deep admirer of Chairman Mao's political philosophy. Mao is recognized as the largest mass murderer ever on the planet. [65]

Obama appointee Van Jones was a founder [66] of the "often vulgar Maoist" [67] [68] organization STORM. STORM's own literature describes the organization as laying a foundation to build "Third World communism." The group studied Lenin's theories of the state, revolution, the party, and "the political ideas of Mao Tse-tung." [69] According to the document, the "growing Maoist orientation" within the group was a factor contributing to internal strife and the group's eventual dissolution. [70] The document states that in addition to "the basics of Marxism, including dialectical materialism," it conducted "a group reading of Mao's On Practice en On Contradiction" and "pushed at or went beyond the limits of the traditional Marxist canon, studying such topics as revolutionary feminism, the Palestinian liberation struggle, transgender liberation, methods of evaluation, self-care for cadre and revolutionary mass [community] organizing." [71] The group was extensively involved in the community organizing movement. [72] In 1992 the premier Maoist organization in the United States, the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) [73] and offshoot of SDS was instrumental in fomenting riots in Los Angeles in which 58 people were killed, and more than 2,300 injured in the wake of the trial of four police officers charged with beating Rodney King. [74] Van Jones traveled from Connecticut to be on hand and was arrested in the aftermath. [75] Van Jones is also a founding board member of Apollo Alliance for clean energy and so-called "green-collar jobs." [11] Jeff Jones is the New York State director of Apollo Alliance. [12] Jeff Jones was a member of the Maoist Action Faction of SDS and along with Ayers and Dohrn co-authored Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-imperialism based on the Sayings of Chairman Mao.

Obama Car Czar Ron Bloom declared himself in agreement with Chairman Mao and referred to the free market system as "nonsense." [76]

Obama fundraiser, personal friend, and former employer Dr. Bill Ayers' teaching curricula relies heavily on material that use Mao Zedong, Josef Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, and Fidel Castro as authoritative sources. [77] Ayers has been a committed Maoist since at least 1969. [78] Ayers is said to have ghost written part of Barack Obama's autobiography, Dreams From My Father. [79] Ayers was a leader in the SDS's Maoist "Action Faction" which became the Weather Underground (WUO). Ayers, Jeff Jones, and Mark Rudd of Progressives for Obama paid homage to Anna Louise Strong, author of the The Thought of Mao Tse-tung, [80] after purging deviationist elements from the SDS leadership in 1969. [81]

Ayers wife, former FBI Top Ten Most Wanted terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, worked in the Law Firm of Sidley Austin [82] in the late 1980s where Barack, Michelle Obama, and Dohrn first met. Dohrn participated in the purging of CPUSA elements from SDS leadership and declared the refurbished SDS leadership would be responsible for the correct Marxist-Leninist line and would exclude non-Maoist, "deviationist" views. Dohrn held the leadership position of Inter-Organizational Secretary in the SDS National Office. The Ayers/Dohrn faction of SDS formed the Weather Underground Organization. SDS Regional Community Organizer David Gilbert declared violent Third World revolution was the only way to achieve "world communism," the goal of WUO. [83]

ACORN founder Wade Rathke was an alumnus of the Maoist dominated Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). [84] Obama told ACORN "during the transition, we're going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. We're going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America." [85]

Die Honolulu Record, the newspaper Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis wrote for was accused of Maoist deviationism during the Sino-Soviet split by its CPUSA overlords. [86]
