Kernell Of Truth

Obama and his Chicago thugs are quite simply that: thugs.

The head thug: Barack Obama. Co-thug: Michelle Obama.

Obama reiterated his marching orders to his army of thugs yesterday:

In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.

“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” he said.

The army of thugs understands. Obama’s army of thugs have harrassed pro-Hillary websites. Obama’s army of thugs threatened riots if Obama did not get the nomination. Obama’s army of thugs threaten riots if Obama does not get elected.

Obama’s army of thugs take their orders from Obama the thug.

Democratic Rep. Mike Kernell of Tennessee unveiled the hacker who broke into Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s e-mail—his 20-year-old son, David Kernell. [snip]

Internet chat rooms posted e-mails from David Kernell—who had not been publicly identified as the hacker at that point—in which he said that the intrusion started off as a “prank” but then he tried to get some dirt on Palin.

“I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be,” the e-mails said. “I read though the e-mails ALL OF THEM before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor and pictures of her family.” [snip]

Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton called the hacking “outrageous.” Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz said, “The fact that a Democratic activist—and possibly an Obama supporter—could go to these lengths is deeply disturbing and criminal,” according to The New York Post.

It started long ago with Obama press secretary Ben LaBolt and his roommate Phil de Vellis. Obama’s thugs have been hard at work for a long time.

Thuggery, race-baiting? Obama’s thugs are on the job:

In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as “A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F–ked Up White Man’s Racist World” and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk for Sandra’s blistering indictment.When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting.

It was disgusting when Republican Jesse Helm advised President Clinton not to go to North Carolina for fear of assasination. It is also disgusting when such language is used against a woman simply for political advantage.

Michelle Obama slimed Hillary Clinton by saying “if you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House”. Michelle Obama delights in smearing and sliming opponents (tactics she learned after years serving the Chicago machine) and afterwards feigning innocence.

Now Michelle Obama is up to her old dirty tricks and insults while denying they are tricks and insults:

Michelle Obama asked voters Thursday to make their choice on the issues, not because, “I like that guy” or, “she’s cute.”

Might she be talking about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin?

“I’m talking about me,” she said with a smile.

Barack Obama’s wife, however, is not on the ticket in the presidential election. Palin is.

Michelle Obama is part of a concerted effort involving her husband, his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden, and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton to neutralize the appeal that Palin has brought to John McCain’s ticket for some female voters. They are doing so unmistakably but gingerly, so as to not appear sexist or invite another lipstick-on-a-pig tempest.

But, perhaps, not gingerly enough.

Michelle Obama’s remarks came at a women’s roundtable on the economy. She told the audience of 600 that her husband is the only candidate focused on equal pay, health care, affordable college, teacher recruitment and other issues of concern to women. She said that’s what the election should be about.

People shouldn’t make a decision this time based on, ‘I like that guy’ or ‘she’s cute,'” she said.

The line won a big round of applause. Before it subsided, she interjected: “And I’m talking about me.”

Wink, Wink, from Michelle. Wink, Wink “pig on a lipstick”. Oink, Oink.

Barack and Michelle are trying to bamboozle women voters. Women voters know Obama can’t be trusted. But Barack and Michelle continue to try to bamboozle:

Barack Obama told supporters in a memo this week that “women voters could decide this election“—words that have amounted to marching orders. Biden has been talking about what Obama would do to help women achieve pay equity with men, a subject Obama is highlighting in TV and radio ads.

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are hypocrites regarding pay equity for women. Obama cannot be trusted:

The most recent statistics are for the half-year from Oct. 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008, excluding interns and focusing on full-time personnel. For someone who worked only until, say, last Feb. 29, extrapolating up to six months’ service simplifies this analysis. Doubling these half-year figures illustrates how a year’s worth of Senate employees’ paychecks should look.

Based on these calculations, Obama’s 28 male staffers divided among themselves total payroll expenditures of $1,523,120. Thus, Obama’s average male employee earned $54,397.

Obama’s 30 female employees split $1,354,580 among themselves, or $45,152, on average.

Why this disparity? One reason may be the under-representation of women in Obama’s highest-compensated ranks. Among Obama’s five best-paid advisors, only one was a woman. Among his top 20, seven were women.

Again, on average, Obama’s female staffers earn just 83 cents for every dollar his male staffers make. This figure certainly exceeds the 77-cent threshold that Obama’s campaign website condemns. However, 83 cents do not equal $1. In spite of this 17-cent gap between Obama’s rhetoric and reality, he chose to chide GOP presidential contender John McCain on this issue.

Meanwhile on the financial markets economic front, Barack Obama is as useless as ever. Obama votes “present” on the U.S. economy.

“Given the gravity of this situation, and based on conversations I have had with both Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke, I have asked my economic team to refrain from presenting a more detailed blue-print of how an immediate plan might be structured until the Treasury and the Federal Reserve have had an opportunity to present their proposal.”

Obama is missing in action. McCain has an economic plan. Hillary Clinton has an economic plan.

Senator Clinton offered a series of bold, specific proposals, including creating a new version of the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation (HOLC) to restore confidence in the market, curbing the most damaging and manipulative trading practices, providing relief to homeowners facing foreclosure, and reasserting competent federal oversight.

Obama will presumably now steal Hillary Clinton’s economic plan and stick his name on it.

Obama’s actions and inactions reveal the essential Obama fact, the Obama revealed kernel of truth: Obama can’t be trusted. Obama’s thugs can’t be trusted.
