Obama for Beginners

Not sure why we posted this in the Humor category, it’s quite sad actually…

Hotair.com: The global-poverty initiative may come a surprise even for people who have paid attention to the race.  Accuracy in Media covered it in February, when Democrats tried to move it out of committee:

A nice-sounding bill called the ”Global Poverty Act,” sponsored by Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Barack Obama, is up for a Senate vote on Thursday and could result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States. The bill, which has the support of many liberal religious groups, makes levels of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations.

Senator Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not endorsed either Senator Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. But on Thursday, February 14, he is trying to rush Obama’s ”Global Poverty Act” (S.2433) through his committee. The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.

The bill, which is item number four on the committee’s business meeting agenda, passed the House by a voice vote last year because most members didn’t realize what was in it. Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require. According to the website of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, no hearings have been held on the Obama bill in that body.

That’s the origin of the $845 billion figure. We spend about $3 trillion a year already on the entire federal budget, and that will add another $70 billion of funding for other governments on our already-bloated government. Most Americans figure we spend too much as it is — and that’s on ourselves.

Interview: ‘Obama is Marxist’ Question Hits Home with Biden

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


Yesterday when Joe Biden was interviewed by Barbara West of WFTV in Florida, he becomes very defensive at the tough questions most people want answered.  Especially if Barack Obama is a Marxist and if he really meant what he said to Joe the Plumber about ‘Spreading the Wealth Around ‘.  Shortly after the interview aired, the Obama campaign pulled all future interviews and has essentially ‘banned’ WFTV from any other coverage of the campaign essentially punishing them for asking the questions everyone wants answered.

Is this a sign for what might be coming in a Obama Biden presidency where they censor out and shun certain media outlets that either ask general questions or might disagree with their political views?  Sounds like forced communist TV to us.  Unfortunately as WFTV has found out, this is the case.  If Obama does become president, you will soon see a massive change in the way future ‘news’ is released, what is censored and what is allowed.  Not to mention, the Fairness Doctrine will bring our Comrades closer to pushing for communist radio as well.

See for yourself how Joe Biden reacts to the questions everyone wants answered:
