Whenever you have an election there are some sore sports or poor losers that will make false acusations against the candidate they didn’t want to win. This has disintigrated into the rediculous with Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg Esq. Philip Berg has filed spurious claims in the court system claiming that president Obama is not qualified to be the President of the United States. Citizen Wells has been there with him all along the way helping him raise money. Now that these claims have worked all the way through the court system and have been thrown out all the way to the US Supreme Court. The problem I see is that Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg are still asking for people’s money on their websites to support this spurrios legal claim that has already been through the court system . Where is this money going and how is it all being spent ? Its time for some answers.

Representative Sue Myrick (R) North Carolina supported Rush Limbaugh’s war against the poor and the middle class when she voted against President Obama’s Recovery Package. Like Limbaugh, Sue Myrick doesn’t seem to care about people that are not as fortunate as her. Sue Myrick wants more tax cuts for the rich and corporations so they can invest in sending more of our jobs overseas. Ms. Myrick has turned her back on the hundreds of thousands of unemployed workers of our state to support her rich freinds. We need to do everything possible to make sure Sue Myrick is not re-elected to public office because she doesn’t support the people, she only supports the wealthy. Myricks plan from her own press release doesn’t do anything for people who are unemployed and in trouble, only offers more money to the same people that put our people out of work and sent our jobs overseas.

It must suck to be Rush Limbaugh. It seems like the sad little man has painted himself into a corner. I listened to him say today that there are no conservatives in elected office anymore. That means to me that in Rush Limbaugh’s mind that every Republican voter is an idiot. This is coming from the genius that told all the Republicans to change parties and vote for Hillary because she would be easier to beat that President Obama in the general election. His latest stroke of genius is to state to all of his listeners that he hopes that everything that President Obama does fails. This shows you tha true nature of Rush Limbaugh. He failed miserably during the 2008 election and proved that the conservative movement has changed and that some common sense has prevailed. Now Rush, the spoiled little rich boy is going to take his ball and go home. He is just out to reek havock on the coutry and try to divide people as much as possible. Rush has soiled his repuation and probably destroyed any credibility he once had among the real conservative base. Now all he has left are conspiracy theorists, militia types and hatemongers. One sad little man doesn’t stand a chance against the American people. When you attack your own political party and are already hated by everyone else your days are numbered. Bye Rush.
I recently did some research on Rush Limbaugh, the De facto leader of the conservative movement. De Facto means something not necessarily endorsed by the law but something that is considered to be the norm in everyday use. There seems to be a leadership vacuum in the Republican Party since the conservatives were trounched in the 2008 elections. When President Obama said “Stop listening to Rush Limbaugh if you want to get things done” and didn’t refer to our elected republican leadership I would say that makes Rush Limbaugh the De Facto leader. So who is this Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the conservative movement and arch enemy of the majority of Americans that had the nerve to go out and vote for a candidate not endorsed by the great Maha Rushie as he so lovingly calls himself on his show ? Well of you take even a brief look at Rush Limbaugh you will find that the emperor has no clothes. Rush is just another hypocrite paid a bunch of money to sell commercials on a nationally syndicated radio show. On his show, Rush Limbaugh says he represents conservationism, unfortunately when you look at the life Rush Limbaugh lives, you may see anther story.
Rush Limbaugh the patriot ? When Americans were fighting a dying in Vietnam, Rush took a deferment to go to college. When he flunked out of college he got classified as medically unfit to serve either from a knee injury or a boil on his ass depending where you find the information. Either way, when he could have served the country, he sure didn’t volunteer and actually used the system NOT to serve his country.
Rush Limbaugh, the pillar of family values ? Rush Limbaugh has no children and has been married and divorced 3 times. “Limbaugh was first married on September 24, 1977 to Roxy Maxine McNeely, a sales secretary at radio station WHB in Kansas City, Mo. They were married at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. In March 1980, McNeely filed for divorce, citing “incompatibility.” They were formally divorced on July 10, 1980.In 1983, Limbaugh married Michelle Sixta, a college student and usherette at the Kansas City Royals Stadium Club. They were divorced in 1990, and she remarried the following year.On May 27, 1994, Limbaugh married Marta Fitzgerald, a 35-year-old aerobics instructor. They were separated on June 11, 2004. Limbaugh announced on the air, “Marta has consented to my request for a divorce, and we have mutually agreed to seek an amicable separation.” The divorce was finalized in December 2004.”
Rush Limbaugh on Law and Order ? Well Rush has had a couple of legal Problems due to illegal drug use. “On October 3, 2003 the National Enquirer reported that Limbaugh was being investigated for illegally obtaining the prescription drugs qxycodone and hydrocodone. On April 28, 2006, Limbaugh and his attorney, Roy Black, went to the Palm Beach County Jail to surrender after a warrant was issued for his arrest on the charge of doctor shopping. According to Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for the Sheriff, during his arrest, Limbaugh was booked, photographed, and fingerprinted, but not handcuffed. He was then released after about an hour on $3,000 bail. After his surrender, he filed a “not guilty” plea to the charge. Prosecutors agreed to drop the charge if Limbaugh paid $30,000 to defray the cost of the investigation. In June 2006, Limbaugh was detained by drug enforcement agents at Palm Beach Airport shortly after cutting the deal on the painkiller charges in April. Customs officials confiscated Viagra from Limbaugh’s luggage as he was returning from the Dominican Republic. The prescription was not in Limbaugh’s name. After he was released with no charges filed,”
Rush Limbaugh the political guru ? During the 2008 election, Rush Limbaugh urged his supporters to crossover, change political parties and vote for Hillary Clinton because Obama would be harder to beat in the general election. This only reenforced that its not about conservatism, its about manipulating the political system and cheating in Rush Limbaugh’s mind. Of course John McCain lost handily. As you know, President Obama prevailed and life goes on. Rush still has his show and the conservative movement is basically dead. Could it be time for the conservatives to find a new leader ?
There isn’t much of an target audience over at WBT-1110 if you look at the different groups of people they spew hate against. Today WBT’s newest Hate Radio Host Tara Servatius was railing against health benefits for Gay and Lesbian Couples employed by our local government. It seems Tara Servatius is promoting the redneck philosophy that straight people are better than gay people and therefore its okay to discriminate against them. I’m sure the other Hate Radio Host Keith Larson will be upset that Tara stole his thunder today. There is hardly a day that goes by that Keith Larson isn’t hateful towards the gay community. Whats even worse is there are people that actually pay Tara and Kieth to spread this kind of anti American trash. I no longer consider WBT a radio station, lets just call it what it is, a daily KKK rally.
Perhaps WBT has forgotten that 61.83% of the people in Mecklenburg County Voted for Barack Obama and 61.59% of the people voted for Kay Hagan. Perhaps when the people at WBT are being hateful towards immigrants, democrats, gay people and Muslims they may want to consider how small their audience is actually getting. It is more than obvious where WBT is heading and I won’t miss it when they are out of business. Charlotte deserves much better and somebody will fill the void with decent programming.
Haiwaii State officials say there’s no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.
“Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino said Friday she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate.”
“Fukino says that no state official, including Republican Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama’s certificate be handled differently.”
“She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest.”
Some Obama critics supported by Members of the Ayran Nations and The Ku Klux Klan still claim these documents are not good enough to prove his citizenship.
“Earlier Friday, a southwest Ohio magistrate rejected a challenge to Obama’s citizenship. Judges in Seattle and Philadelphia recently dismissed similar suits.”
It would seem that hate speech, racism and homophobia backfired on the Republican Party this election cycle. Jeff Katz and WBT Hate Radio have spent months in a campaign against Barack Obama. Monday thru Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm there has been a constant stream of hatred and ignorant filth piled upon the airwaves from their 50,000 watt radio station. It would seem that karma has bitten them in the posterior. NONE of the candidates they supported were elected. So who are WBT and Jeff Katz trying to sell their hate to and who are the idiots that are buying advertising from these Nimrods ? Here is how it went down in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County , North Carolina.
Obama/Biden(D) 61.83% 252,652 votes
Mccain/Palin(R) 37.44% 152,957 votes
Barr/Root(L) 0.46% 1,891 votes
WRITE-IN 0.27% 1,092 votes
Kay Hagan(D) 61.59% 248,454 votes
Elizabeth Dole(R) 35.47% 143,059 votes
Christopher Cole(L) 2.89% 11,652 votes
WRITE-IN 0.05% 211 votes
Governor of North Carolina
Bev Perdue(D) 49.04% 198,631 votes
Pat McCrory(R) 48.94% 198,246 votes The 8 time mayor of Charlotte that had a show on WBT
Mike Munger(L) 2.02% 8,184 votes
Clearly WBT does not represent the people of Charlotte as you can see. We deserve better and its an embarrassment to think that when visitors come to the Queen City they might actually hear the filth that Jeff Katz and WBT puts out there and leave thinking that we are some backwater trapped in the 1960′s south. Its a pitiful way for a company to make money and they should be ashamed. Jeff Katz has been fired from other jobs for spreading hate. Why should Charlotte have to suffer his hate ?
Alaska’s largest and most influential paper the Anchorage Daily News has endorsed Barack Obama. It seems that John McCains credibility fell into question over the way he fell in line with the extreme right on some of his longstanding views so quickly after being at odds with the same people for over 25 years.
“Sen. McCain describes himself as a maverick, by which he seems to mean that he spent 25 years trying unsuccessfully to persuade his own party to follow his bipartisan, centrist lead. Sadly, maverick John McCain didn’t show up for the campaign. Instead we have candidate McCain, who embraces the extreme Republican orthodoxy he once resisted and cynically asks Americans to buy for another four years.”
McCain also fell into question as being unable to solve the financial problems of our country and showed he seemed to shut down when the going got tough, such as when he “closed” his campaign during the financial crisis.
“Sen. McCain has stumbled and fumbled badly in dealing with the accelerating crisis as it emerged. He declared that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong” at 9 a.m. one day and by 11 a.m. was describing an economy in crisis. He is both a longtime advocate of less market regulation and a supporter of the huge taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailout. His behavior in this crisis — erratic is a kind description — shows him to be ill-equipped to lead the essential effort of reining in a runaway financial system”
Senator Obama on the other hand remained cool and during the crisis having warned regulators well in advance of the economic meltdown.
“Sen. Obama warned regulators and the nation 19 months ago that the subprime lending crisis was a disaster in the making. Sen. McCain backed tighter rules for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but didn’t do much to advance that legislation. Of the two candidates, Sen. Obama better understands the mortgage meltdown’s root causes and has the judgment and intelligence to shape a solution”
They look to Obama for economic policies with bipartisan support, although after this election, there may not be enough republicans to matter.
“It is easy to look at Sen. Obama and see a return to the smart, bipartisan economic policies of the last Democratic administration in Washington, which left the country with the momentum of growth and a budget surplus that President George Bush has squandered.”
And as far as Obama leading the Military goes:
“The unqualified endorsement of Sen. Obama by a seasoned, respected soldier and diplomat like Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican icon, should reassure all Americans that the Democratic candidate will pass muster as commander in chief.”

If your television declares John McCain the president elect on the evening of November 4th, your television will be lying. You should immediately pick up your pre-packed bags and head straight to the White House in Washington, D.C., which we will surround and shut down until this attempt at a third illegitimate presidency is reversed.
A McCain “win” will not be illegitimate because I disagree with his policies, but because he himself has rendered it illegitimate. He and his campaign and allied supporters have sought to illegally remove hundreds of thousands of voters from the rolls, fraudulently registered people as Republicans without their knowledge and against their will, obstructed voter registration drives, falsely warned students against voting where they attend school, falsely accused community groups of voter registration fraud, falsely alleged the widespread existence of voter fraud, and encouraged supporters to falsely believe McCain’s opponent is a foreign terrorist through speeches, recorded phone messages, and flyers. Already in early voting in a number of states there have been cases of votes on electronic machines visibly flipping to McCain or McKinney when intended for Obama. We will see McCain supporters on November 4th challenging people’s right to vote, seeking to force people to vote on provisional ballots, and seeking to have provisional ballots discarded. And we will see electronic vote counts wildly out of step with the most recent polls, although not with exit polls — which we will be denied any access to unless they have been “adjusted” to match the official counts.
Inciting your supporters to violence with racist and religious lies about your opponent, effectively alleging treason on absolutely no basis, should be enough, alone, to disqualify a campaign for the presidency of the United States. Working to block voters from registering should be enough on its own. Any of the dozens of creative forms of vote suppression currently being used by the Republicans should be enough. And allowing votes to be counted on completely unverifiable machines owned and controlled by corporations allied with your party should make the results illegitimate even if plausible. If McCain is declared the “winner,” it will not be plausible, but at this point he has so disgraced himself and our electoral system that he is no longer a legitimate candidate for president regardless of what the polls (themselves fallible, but all we’ve got) say just before election day. Too many people have already been denied the opportunity to even push the buttons and have their votes miscounted. Too much incendiary slander has been let loose. Too much visible vote flipping has already been documented.
If Obama officially wins, McCain is likely to challenge it, charging the Obama campaign with some of the very crimes engaged in by McCain himself. Our reaction should be exactly the same in the event of a McCain challenge as in the event of a McCain “victory.” We should not sit back for even a split second and wonder how it will work out. We should not try to organize a plan on the spur of the moment to travel to key battleground states. We should be prepared already to immediately travel to Washington, D.C., head straight for the White House, occupy Lafayette Square Park, the Ellipse, and surrounding streets, block entrances, and shut the place down until Obama is recognized as the president elect or we are guaranteed a credible election with universal registration and hand-counted paper ballots.
We may be there for days or weeks or months. But we must be there. We must be there by the millions. We must show each other, and the nation, and the world that we have had enough, that we will not stand for one more stolen election, that we will not give in to fear, lies, theft, and intimidation. If they choose to attack our nonviolent gathering of citizens, let them do it right in front of George W. Bush’s White House with the world’s media watching. We will not back down.
I’m not hoping it comes to this, of course. If it doesn’t because the official election results are credible and just, we should celebrate and prepare to lobby our government for real change. But if resistance does not develop because people are too scared and obedient to act, then you’ll still be glad you packed ahead of time, and you might want to look into tickets to Canada.
There is a story about John McCain that the media has not covered in the states and it is the story of his first family and how he betrayed them. John McCain was married and had a wife and kids and after they supported him through his captivity and he dumped them. He came home and had been having an affair with Cindy and got a lawyer with no prior knowledge of his wife and served her divorce papers. A month later he married Cindy, the rich beer baron’s daughter 18 years his junior. If a man would betray his own family how could we trust him with our country ? I have given the link below of a good detailed description of how it all went down. I am very surprised that not many people think this is important. I think it is an important way to look into McCain’s character and see what he is really made of. Does anyone else feel the same way I do ?
