This denotes the end of an era folks. Semper Fi Gunny, and Godspeed in your new endeavors.



Yes, this is the end of an era. But it also the beginning of a new one.

It is hard to know where to start, but I figure I had first better thank you for making the Gunny Bob Show the top-rated evening news-talk program in the Denver Metro region. Without you, my show’s ratings would never have been strong enough over all these years to always be the #1 show in that slot, even handily beating the fat cat syndicated hosts with ease. I owe all that to you. Your loyalty means more to me than I can describe.

I must also thank Clear Channel’s Lee Larsen, Robin Bertolucci and Kris Olinger for all of their support, as well as Dominic Bond and Matt Larsen, my producers, for their excellent work.

So why am I doing this? Why am I marching back into the mouth of the tiger?

There’s no single reason, but rather a combination. However, one outweighs the others.

The Marine Corps spent a lot of money, time and effort training me over 20 years to understand and defeat terrorists. After I retired, I became a counterterrorism consultant for the media (FOX News, the BBC, CBS, etc.) and eventually founded my own counterterrorism company, after working for two other companies in the role of counterterrorism instructor, analyst and advisor. From October 2001 to last week, I issued nearly 200 accurate predictions, warnings and assessments (as well as stories broken) in the war on terror, all documented. I have made several predictions so accurate that I even named the exact facilities to be attacked, how they would be attacked, and by what terrorist group in what timeframe, and when you can do that, you get people’s attention. I traveled to many countries in the performance of my counterterrorism duties (UAE, China, Hong Kong, Philippines, UK, Brazil, India and so on) and my reputation grew in this time to the point that people started asking me to help them in more and more ways.

About a month ago, an organization (don’t make any assumptions) approached me and asked that I relocate to their location and be their counterterrorism and security advisor. This organization has people and assets in a country that is infested with terrorists in a huge region of the planet that is infested with terrorists. They need me to keep their people alive and their assets intact, and that is what I intend to do. If things collapse in this country and region, we here in America will absolutely, beyond any doubt, be targeted far more often. I can’t allow that to happen, so I resigned from Clear Channel (my bosses were a bit surprised and none too pleased), accepted the new position and do the seabag drag to my new gig this Saturday.

Gang, if what I will do in my new position will help keep Americans alive back home and abroad, how can I say no when it is my duty to say yes?

So, adios gang. I will think of you often, as I hope you do me.

Semper Fidelis,

Gunny, out


Think About It

Going Swami on us…

June 20, 2009

Is Gunny Bob at 850 KOA radio going swami on us, or might there be something to all this? The situation in Iran has been heating up for quite some time. This didn’t happen overnight and no President can be applauded or blamed for whatever does happen there after things follow the course.

However, as the Iranian’s like to point out on occasion. Who taught them how to fight? I happen to know that many Iranian’s attended several  of the various schools and such here in America. Including different War Colleges, and the School of the America’s. One has to believe that many of those people are still alive and well in Iran. While it would be pure speculation on my part to think that those same people may be operating there it just might be the case. If so, will that be a valid criticism of the United States, as in international meddling yet again? Or might there be more to this than meets the eye? Did Gunny Bob get out a crystal ball? Read on…


Long ago, the Gunny was sent to a school that taught students how to overthrow foreign governments. Interesting instructors came from elsewhere to teach the course. In the course, students learned how to destablize a government using provocateurs and other assets to exploit certain domestic situations. Students also learned how the U.S. government has a long history of this sort of activity. And students learned how to recognize “funny business” when they saw it.

Now let’s look at Iran.

(1) Obama has stated that he can not allow the Iranians to have nukes.

(2) Obama knows the Jews will conduct a pre-emptive strike if they deem it necessary.

(3) Obama will not support the Jews if they make such a strike.

(4) Obama knows the Iranians are getting very close to a nuke.

(5) Obama knows the Jews know #4.

(6) Obama knows what will happen to him politically if he allows the Iranians to get nukes.

(7) Obama knows many American targets are well within range of many Iranian weapon systems.

Now, if you were Obama and your CIA told you that they can help arrange riots and massive civil unrest in Iran while allowing you to have culpable deniability that could be reinforced with clever public statements from you, and they said that with some luck the government could fall and thus possibly end the Iranians’ nuke program, would that not be an option you would seriously consider?

The Gunny was just thinking that the situation in Iran right now sure looks a lot like a scenario out of that school he went to long ago.

It appears that Gunny Bob at 850 KOA is on a rampage, and I don’t blame him one bit. First our fearless leader bows to the king of a country that supplied most of the people that attacked the United States on 9/11, and now he refuses to even acknowledge that the attack on the Arkansas recruiting station was a terrorist act. Certainly the list is much longer. One only has to read the news or the many blogs that are not kowtowing to the impostor in chief to be aware that something is just not right in America. Heck, when Pravda is more truthful than the American MSM it should be a wake up call…


“The CIA and Pentagon both say huge numbers of US military personnel have been killed in Iraq by the Iranian terrorist regime. The State Department lists the Iranian government as a terrorist entity. Obama just formally invited them to join our Independence Day celebrations. Is this fool out of his mind?”

Leftist Paper Had Refused Until Gunny Humiliated The Infamous Rag On The Air

Shortly after Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who received terrorist training in Yemen and was illegally traveling on a Somali passport, attacked a military recruiting office in Little Rock at 10:30AM CT (9:30AM MT) on 1 June, news outlets across the country began urgently reporting the story. The shocking story went national within minutes.

But the Denver Post, run by Obamanista Greg Moore, refused to carry the story of how an Army recruiter’s assistant was killed in the brazen attack, another wounded, and that the terrorist would be charged with 1st degree murder and 15 counts of committing a terrorist act.

By 9:15PM MT, the Post was still refusing to publish the story. Gunny Bob went on the air and immediately began reporting how the Post would not run the story despite major national coverage. He did this repeatedly until 1:00AM Tuesday. At precisely that time, the Post capitulated and published the story 15 1/2 hours after it broke.

And the Post wonders why it is on the verge of extinction.

Ken Salazar: Stupid is as stupid does redux

May 7, 2009

Ken Salazar is a nice guy. That said he is a near total incompetent in the realm of public service in mine, and the opinions of many others. It is beyond me why on earth he was selected by the impostor in chief for the position that he currently holds. His only true claim to fame in public service is the Great Outdoors Colorado Amendment, and that, by all accounts was suggested to him, no initiative  there. Some point to his service as State Attorney General with pride. What I saw was mysandry, and later siding with Ex Governor Roy Romer in pardoning a woman that put an axe through her sleeping husbands head. That woman should still be in prison, just like every man that has murdered his wife and been convicted has. I am perhaps being too harsh on him, after all, he had the good sense to oppose listing grass rats that infest the state as “endangered” after all. Perhaps my biggest problem with him is what I see as a lack of courage in refusing to go on air with people like Gunny Bob, or even soft ball pitchers Caplis and Silverman.

Then he goes and does this…

Gov reacts strongly to Salazar’s wind power comment

CHEYENNE — Depending on where you stand, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s comment this week that wind energy could replace coal-fired power in the United States was either welcome news, or so much hot air.

“The idea that wind energy has the potential to replace most of our coal-burning power today is a very real possibility,” Salazar said, according to The Associated Press. “It is not technology that is pie-in-the sky; it is here and now.”

Here in Wyoming, the nation’s No. 1 coal-producing state, Salazar’s comments drew a mix of responses.

Marion Loomis, executive director of the Wyoming Mining Association, said it’s important to look carefully at what Salazar actually said.

The key word in the secretary’s comments, Loomis said, was “potential.”

“To say that the potential is there is true,” Loomis said. “Just like it’s true with nuclear or oil shale. It’s another thing to say you’re going to switch from the traditional sources to something that would be impossible.”

That said, Loomis agrees that wind energy will doubtless play a larger role in the nation’s energy generation.

“But it will be difficult to approach anything close to what coal is providing in any realistic foreseeable time frame,” Loomis said. “Coal is going to be around for a long time.”

Gov. Dave Freudenthal put it even more bluntly.

“Ain’t going to happen,” Freudenthal told reporters at an impromptu new conference Wednesday that mostly focused on other topics.

Freudenthal said Salazar’s comments were a “dumb thing to say,” and may provide a teachable moment in which the new interior secretary will learn the wisdom of “not making gratuitous statements.”

Freudenthal added that the importance of coal in the nation’s energy mix is a reality, despite any creative hypotheticals by those in the Beltway.

“That potential (for wind energy to replace coal) is never going to be realized,” said Freudenthal, adding that Salazar’s comment was out of step with other messages from the Obama Administration.

For example, Freudenthal said, the federal economic stimulus package includes millions of dollars to develop technology for clean coal and carbon capture and sequestration.

He also pointed out that the administration has signaled its desire to restart the FutureGen clean coal initiative, a $1 billion project to install cutting-edge carbon capture systems on new coal-fired power plants.

“It’s kind of an interesting comment” by Salazar, Freudenthal said. “But it’s inaccurate; ain’t going to happen.”

Laurie Milford, executive director the Wyoming Outdoor Council, a Lander-based conservation group, had a slightly different take.

Milford praised Salazar for “looking seriously at renewable sources of energy.� But she also accepted that coal is a major part of the nation’s energy future.

“We have to be realistic about that,” Milford said. “It’s an important bridge fuel for decades to come. And yet while we’re still using coal to make energy, we need to be working to make coal less dirty.”

Milford also praised efforts by the state to develop more environmentally friendly coal-based energy, including efforts to perfect underground carbon storage methods, and the General Electric-University of Wyoming partnership to develop coal-to-fuels technology.

“I really think that everything the state of Wyoming is doing to make coal viable in a carbon-constrained economy is important,” Milford added. “We’ve got a long ways to go, but Wyoming is getting quite serious about it and I’m encouraged.”

Salazar, who hails from Colorado, made the comments at a public hearing in Atlantic City, N.J., on how the nation’s offshore areas can be tapped to meet America’s energy needs.

Salazar said ocean winds along the East Coast can generate 1 million megawatts of power, roughly the equivalent of 3,000 medium-sized coal-fired power plants, or nearly five times the number of coal plants now operating in the nation.

One wind power company official estimated it would take hundreds of thousands of windmills to harness that volume of energy. Efforts to develop even small-scale wind projects off the East Coast have met considerable resistance from those who live there.

A spokesman for Salazar said Monday that the secretary does not expect wind power to be fully developed, but was speaking of its total potential if it were, according to the AP.

Wyoming coal mines produced more than 450 million tons of coal in 2007, or nearly 40 percent of the nation’s coal, according to the Wyoming Mining Association.


obama: April Update

April 27, 2009

An ongoing project exposing the impostor in chief, the administration, and the destruction of America by those sworn to protect the nation.

On 1 April 2009, Senate Republicans revealed that by 2016 the Obama deficit would reach $8.7 trillion, which is $2.9 trillion more than the deficits racked up by all presidents combined since 1789 (232 years).

In his latest international blunder, Obama, during his visit to the United Kingdom, was granted an audience with the Queen, during which he gave her an iPod as a gift. The Queen, however, has had an iPod since 2005. The embarrassing gaffe follows Obama’s gift to Prime Minister Brown of a box of DVDs that do not work in British DVD players.

On 2 April 2009, the Obama regime handed out instructions for reporters to join a conference call with Secretary of State Clinton and National Security Advisor Jones that included an 800 number for reporters to call. When they began calling the number, they all got a phone-sex business with a woman asking if the caller wanted to “get nasty.”

As the G-20 summit came to a close on 2 April 2009, Obama was sent away a humbled failure after he failed to achieve his primary goal of cementing a global economic stimulus plan between the 20 parties. Instead, all he got was approval for some loans to small countries and a series of embarrassments involving protocol gaffes.

On 2 April 2009, Russian dictator Dmitry Medvedev, speaking at the G-20 summit, referred to Obama as “my new comrade,” a foreboding description of the clearly disturbing friendship that has formed between the Russian strongman and socialist American president.

Standing on foreign soil in Strasbourg, France, Obama stunned Europe, America and the world by publicly and vehemently insulting his own country, stating that America’s “arrogance,” “dismissive” attitude and “derisive” actions are just cause for Europeans to despise America. No president in history has ever done such a thing.

On 1 April 2009, despite the Taliban’s insulting and highly negative response to Obama’s offering of an olive branch last month to what he termed “moderate Taliban,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered an “honorable form of reconciliation” to Taliban terrorists who she claimed wanted peace. One day later, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid called Clinton’s offer “a lunatic idea,” again causing the clueless Obama regime a great deal of international humiliation.

On 18 February 2008, Obama released a statement in which he said: “When I am President, it will not be business as usual when it comes to food safety.” In late March 2009, two million pounds of pistachios were recalled for salmonella poisoning from a California processing plant and the FDA instructed all Americans to avoid eating any pistachios or products containing pistachios they had on hand.

In early April 2009, Obama appointed Harry Knox, the homosexual leader of the Human Rights Campaign anti-Papal hate group, to the Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Knox routinely attacks Catholic groups, the Vatican and Pope for their stance on gay marriage.

On 7 April 2009, the government of Pakistan handed Obama another major setback in an on-going series of very public international embarrassments by denying the Obama regime’s request to conduct joint ground combat operations with Pakistan forces inside Pakistan. The request was personally delivered to Pakistan by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Obama special envoy Richard Holbrooke.

On 4 April 2009, in a news conference in Strasbourg, Austrian reporter Sonja Sagmeister asked Obama a question, to which he replied: “There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian — wheeling and dealing…”, revealing that Obama actually believes the language spoken in Austria is called Austrian. In reality, of course, there is no such language; the primary language of Austria is German.

On 9 April 2009, after repeated questions from reporters about the pirate hostage crisis, Obama refused to answer, saying he could focus that day only on one thing: the housing and mortgage situation, despite his promising during the campaign that he was best qualified to handle multiple problems that might face his regime.

On 10 April 2009, Obama again refused to answer any questions on the pirate hostage crisis, and the London Telegraph called him “President Pantywaist” and the “new surrender monkey on the block,” two nasty insults that reflected Europe’s growing contempt for the pathetic president.

On 10 April 2009, the AP reported that Obama was throwing a 140-guest pizza party at the White House and that Obama ordered the pizzas to be made fresh in the White House by the owner and chefs from Pi Pizza. The catch: Pi Pizza is in St. Louis. Obama had the owner and chef gather up all the ingrediatents and pans and fly to the White House to personally prepare the pizzas, this as Americans are losing their homes and jobs and businesses.

On 7 April 2009, the Obama regime released to law enforcement an “assessment” that informed recipients of the report of how military veterans, gun owners, pro-lifers, pro-soveriegnty, anti-illegal immigration and other conservative Americans could be terrorists who might attack the homeland. The DHS document was roundly debunked by a variety of organizations as a piece of liberal trash meant to incite fear and distrust of conservatives.

On 14 April 2009, North Korea, despite Obama claiming repeatedly that he would get the to listen to reason, pulled out of the six-party talks, ordered UN inspectors out of the country, and announced it was restarting its nuke program.

On 13 April 2009, Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, admitted falsely reporting to the Congress that she had received only $12,000 from infamous Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller, and that she really accepted $35,000.

On 15 April 2009, the Times of London reported on French President Sarkozy’s insulting remarks and very negative opinions on Obama, calling Obama’s ideas “rhetoric,” saying Obama is naive, that most of his proposals came from the Bush administration, that Obama’s climate plans were behind those of Europe and his tax plans were unsatisfactory. The stream of insults received wide coverage in the French press as well.

On 16 April 2009, NBC reported that the White House had requested Georgetown University cover up the IHS symbol for Jesus in Gaston Hall for Obama’s speech there. The university admitted this was true and that it had complied with the request from the Obama regime to places drapes over the symbol that would have appeared behind and above Obama during his speech.

On 16 April 2009, DHS Secretary Napolitano apologized to veterans for insulting them in her department’s 7 April 2009 “assessment” that veterans may become domestic terrorists and attack the homeland using their combat skills.

In April 2009, Obama declassified and ordered released for publication numerous top secret documents relating to the interrogation of terrorists that, among other things, revealed the CIA’s interrogation processes and which techniques are the most effective. For mer CIA Director Michael Hayden stated doing so aided and abetting the enemy, which is treason under the United States Code.

On 21 April 2009, David Axelrod, Obama’s top political advisor, stated “amti-Americanism isn’t cool anymore” among other countries due to Obama’s apologetic, anti-American statements made in the UK, Europe and Latin America. The irony and contradictory nature of the statement was apparently lost on Axelrod.

In a total reversal of his policy as stated the week before, on 21 April 2009, Obama said his regime is now open to the prosecution of Bush administration officials who stated the law allows for enhanced interrogation methods. The day prior, Obama went to the CIA and swore to them that he would protect them.

On the weekend of 19-20 April 2009 on CNN, Obama regime DHS Secretary Napolitano, a pro-illegal alien amnesty activist, lied by stating “crossing the border is not a crime per se” in refering to illegal aliens. In reality, 8 U.S.C. 1325 states very cleary that illegally crossing the US border is a crime: a misdeamor for the first offense and a felony for additional offenses.

A once top secret and now declassified CIA memo dated 30 May 2005 revealed that Obama lied when he stated that no intelligence gathered from captured al Qaeda terrorists via waterboarding had resulted in an attack being prevented. The memo stated that 9-11 operations chief Khalid Sheik Mohammed at first refused to cooperate under standard interrogation methods, but after being waterboarded revealed that a 9-11-style attack using East Asian terrorists was planned for Los Angeles and that the attack was thwarted because of the intelligence KSM surrendered during the waterboarding.

On 20 April 2009, Venezuelan Marxist strongman Hugo Chavez stated that, under Obama, socialism is now reaching the United States. Obama, at the Summit of the Americas, refered to the dictator as his “amigo” and warmly greeted the thug as a comrade, even accepting a book on the evils of the United States from him, which he said he would read.

On 20 April 2009, in an interview with the CBC, DHS Secretary Napolitano claimed that some of the 9-11 terrorists entered the US via Canada. This is an outright lie. As the 9-11 Commission reported, all of the 9-11 terrorists entered the US from abroad. She then stated that no terrorists have entered the US via Mexico, which is patently false according to the Director of the FBI in testimony before the Congress.

On 16 April 2009, Obama regime Department of Education Sec. Arne Duncan signed a Joint Statement of Exchange and Cooperation with the Chinese Minister of Education Zhou Ji. The Chinese government is listed by the State Department as a nation that operates massive and brutal “re-education camps” for dissidents, some of whom do not survive the horrific conditions and violence for which the camps are infamous. Obama claimed during his campaign that he would be the best human rights president.

On 22 April 2009, the Obama regime asked a federal court to throw out a lawsuit filed by Americans held hostage for 444 days by the terrorist regime of Iran during the Carter administration. The suit seeks $6.6 billion from the genocidal terrorist regime, but the Obama regime, siding with the terrorists, says an agreement between Carter and the terrorists disallows the suit.

On “Earth Day” 2009, Obama made two Air Force One (Boeing 747) flights and four Marine One (Sikorsky VH-3D Sea King) flights to places like Des Moines to make speeches about the importance of using less carbon-based fuel, like jet juel and helicopter fuel. He used more than 9,000 gallons of fuel during those flights and the aircraft dumped huge amounts of toxic pollutants into the air while doing so.

In April 2009, Obama appointed Rosa Brooks to the position of advisor to the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, a highly influential and coveted position which will grant her access to huge amounts of the nation’s most sensistive national security and military secrets. Brooks, a former LA Times columnist who has railed against Jews and a radical leftist who worked for billionaire extremist Socialist George Soros, has publicly sided with al Qaeda in its war against America. She has no military experience whatsoever.

On 20 April 2009, The New York Times reported that Obama was considering coverting the preferred stock it owns in banks that took TARP funds into common stock, which would give the regime voting rights on each bank’s policies and management, which is a key factor in socialism in that Obama would be able to control credit via controlling the banks, and thus the economy.

On 23 April 2009, Rasmussen Reports published a poll that said 58% of Americans believe Obama damaged national security by releasing the once Top Secret memos on enhanced interrogation techniques of al Qaeda terrorists. Only 28% said in the telephone poll that the release was helpful.

The scuttlebutt comes out on the rescue care of Gunny Bob.


Breaks Wild ‘n Crazy Inside Scoop On Rescue of Captain Phillips

Using Skype technology from his home library, the Gunny appeared live on FOX News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” program with hosts Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly.

The Gunny’s awesome connections to the highest tiers of the Department of Defense allowed him to tell the real story of how one pirate ended up on the Bainbridge, why the pirates really allowed the lifeboat to be towed away from shore by the Bainbridge, the details of the 007-style MCADS insertion used by the SEALs, and more.


Mere hours after the rescue, the Gunny got a call from a very trusted source who had the inside scoop on some fascinating events:

The pirate who lived was not brought aboard the Bainbridge for negotiations, as some media outlets falsely reported; he asked to come aboard so he could make a phone call to his family. The ship agreed and sent a RHIB (rigid-hulled inflatable boat) for him. He got in and was brought to the ship, where he was drinking and eating and using the phone and waving at his pals. This was a tactical decision, i.e., one less pirate to deal with if the shoot order was given.

The ship asked the pirates via LRAD (long-range acoustic device) loudspeaker if they could send a RHIB over to tie the lifeboat to the ship. The pirates agreed. Why did they agree? The pirates were told that the region of Somalia they were drifting toward was not their clan area and that the other clansmen were waiting to kill them and take the hostage. The pirates agreed.

The other pirates who were coming in 4 motherships with 60-70 hostages called the Bainbridge and actually asked if the ship would give them a bearing and range to the lifeboat! The ship said no, of course.

The SEALs inserted via flawless MCADS (maritime craft aerial delivery system). They fired from the ship’s fantail, were hard-wired in for the shoot command, and did so when they all got shot opportunities simultaneously.


Colorado Media Matters R.I.P.

March 21, 2009

Obituaries are seldom things that are pleasant to write. However sometimes they can be gleeful. Colorado Media Matters went down the tubes this past week. I say good riddance to them. Nothing more than a leftest attack machine that regularly took things out of context, Colorado Media Matters was a disinformation outlet that would have made Stalin proud.

From Ari Armstrong to Gunny Bob few went un-assaulted by the hatemongers at Colorado Media Matters. I posted about them once and got swamped with hate mail, and less than coherent responses filled with curses and vindictive. The following links will tell the tale for any readers.

In Support of

Marine Parents ( and Marines in Combat In Iraq and Afghanistan

A 501 (c)(3) Charity

Every year, Gunny Bob comes up with a very worthy charity drive. We’ve done Operation “Beanie Baby,” which sent nearly 50,000 Beanie Babies to the children of Iraq; Operation “Leatherneck Sheets,” which sent huge numbers of cotton sheets to Marines in Iraq to keep them cool in the blazing heat of the Middle East; and Operation “Cancun Honeymoon,” which raised more than $8,000 to send badly wounded Marine Corporal Aaron Mankin and his Marine wife on the honeymoon they never got because they were in the war serving you instead.

Now Gunny Bob and Marine Parents announce Operation “Leatherneck Comfort,” which we hope will raise $5,000 for combat Marines, including Purple Heart recipients, and their families.

The Gunny is asking you, his troops, to once again answer the call of duty by contributing to Operation “Leatherneck Comfort” by clicking on the link to your left and donating through PayPal or your credit card. Please give whatever you can afford and remember that your generous, tax-deductable contribution will make Marines in combat ( and those who can no longer serve because of their grievous wounds, or who are recovering from their wounds in military hospitals (, a little more comfortable.

America has counted on its Marine Corps since 1775. Now you can return the favor by donating to this outstanding charity. Your Marines and their families need you.

Obama Accomplishments Update

March 3, 2009

Gunny Bob keeps tabs on the administrations accomplishments and I am happy to allow him to do so because it is simply beyond me to keep up!

On 20 February 2009, in another embarrasing communications and policy gaff, the Obama regime had to publicly slap down Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood’s suggestion that the regime might tax Americans for every mile they drive.

According to a Kerry aid on 20 February 2009, Sen. John Kerry, after being admittedly caught carrying a letter from Hamas to Obama that was the first step in establishing a direct and personal dialogue between Hamas and Obama, turned the letter over to the Jerusalem consul general. Kerry is now claiming it is all a big mistake and he didn’t know the letter was from Hamas.

On 17 February 2009, on Obama’s orders, 16 people were killed in a coalition operation in Afghanistan, but only 3 were terrorists; the others were civilians, including two children and six women. Obama had no comment on the body count of kids and women he has already amassed as commander in chief.

On 20 February 2009, in a move that infuriated the ACLU and human rights groups around the world, Obama stunned many when he ordered his lawyers to file a brief stating, despite his many vehement campaign promises to the contrary, terrorists held prisoner by the US in Afghanistan have absolutely no rights whatsoever.

On 21 February 2009, in a shocking policy statement that sent human rights groups into a blind rage, Secretary of State Clinton said during a visit to China, one of the most repressive communist regimes in history, that “human rights cannot interfere” with the economy, global warming and other issues, which take precedence. This statement stunned human rights groups who believed Obama when he repeatedly stated during his campaign that human rights would be a priority in his regime.

In the 3rd week of February 2009, Obama suffered his first major foreign policy & security disaster when he failed to convince Pakistan’s government that it should not surrender control of the restive, terrorist-filled Swat Valley to the Taliban terrorism cartel, even though Obama said he was the candidate who, as president, would be more effective in leading the war on terror there. In the same week, top-secret photos were leaked revealing a US Predator drone base inside Pakistan.

In his second major foreign affairs and security failure of his newly installed regime, Obama failed to prevent the start-up of the Iranian terrorist regime nuclear plant at Bushehr, which is slated for 25 February 2009 according to Iran’s government. The start-up will take place despite Obama, during his campaign, repeatedly insisting that his diplomatic skills would turn the Iranian terrorist government off their path to nuclear power.

Despite his innumerable campaign promises to do whatever it takes to win the war in Afghanistan and support our military’s efforts there, in February 2009, Obama ignored the sage advice of our most respected military officers, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and refused to order at least 30,000 additional troops into Afghanistan, instead opting for just over half of what was requested.

On 23 February 2009, in another embarrasing demonstration of the Obama regime’s blatant hypocrisy, the Detroit News reported that of the 18 member of Obama’s Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry, only two drove American cars.

On 19 February 2009, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano issued the bold lie that no Mexican drug cartel violence had crossed the border. In reality, according to news reports in major papers and in broadcast media in Arizona (she is the former governor of that state) and elsewhere, numerous police departments in Arizona and elsewhere, the FBI, and the Cato Institute, Mexican drug cartel crime is very commonplace inside the United States and 230 cities have Mexican drug cartel cells. Napolitano is believed to have told the absurd lie because had she admitted to the contrary, Obama’s plan for open borders and pro-illegal-alien immigration reform would be less acceptable to the American people.

As of 23 February 2009, the Dow had plummeted more than 1,000 points under Obama’s economic policies and more than 2,000 points since his election. On 23 February 2009, when the markets learned Obama was going to make a statement on fiscal responsibility, the Dow fell 251 points.

On 23 February 2009, Newsmax reported that Obama’s $410 billion omnibus spending bill contains 9,000 earmarks. During his campaign, Obama guaranteed earmarks reform under his regime and clearly promised he would never sign such a bill.

On 23 February 2009, the Obama regime convened what it termed a Fiscal Responsibility Summit (for three hours) at which the regime said there were no special interests represented. In reality, there were 47 liberal, Obama-linked and Obama-supporting special interest groups represented, including 7 unions, 3 health care associations, 2 health policy foundations, 9 ethnic and racial interest groups, 6 senior, women, disabled and gay rights groups, 11 leftist think tanks and advocacy groups, 4 business interest groups, three universities, a law firm and a financial services firm.

On 24 February 2009, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Biden crime family was deeply involved with indicted rogue financier Allen Stanford and his $8 billion fraud scheme. The Bidens own Paradigm Global Advisors LLC, which was marketed exclusively by Stanford and was operated via the Stanford International Bank in Antigua.

On 23 February 2009, Texas Homeland Security Steve McCraw testified before the House Committee on Border and International Affairs that Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was 100% wrong in her farcical statement that Mexican drug cartel violence was non-existent in the US. The testimony was linked to Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s request for an additional $135 million to secure the border to help prevent additional Maxican drug cartel violence from happening in Texas. Neither McCraw or Perry speculated on why Napolitano had told the bizare lie.

During his address to the nation on 24 February 2009, Obama:

(1) Falsely claimed that the automobile was invented in America, which it was not, thus making him look stupid and ignorant

(2) Stated his top three priorities did not include homeland security

(3) Complained about government debt, even though the week prior he added $1.4 trillion to that debt

(4) Complained about banks giving home loans to unqualified buyers, but it was his party that pushed that policy

(5) Falsely claimed he does not believe in big government, yet every expert says his policies will grow the size and power of the government exponentially

(6) Touted his website and claimed it shows details of exactly how the “stimulus” money will be spent, but the website shows no such thing and has been revealed to be a scam by the media

(7) Announced his program to use your tax dollars to help your neighbor buy a new car

(8) Falsely claimed his policies would prevent CEOs from buying new drapes and flying on private jets

(9) Falsely claimed he would never help “a single Wall Street executive” even though his bailous do precisely that

(10) Falsely claimed using tax dollars to create a socialist medicine program would reduce the deficit

(11) Promised to use taxpayer dollars to pay for every American to receive a college education

(12) Stated high school dropouts were “quitting on their country” even though hundreds of thousands, if not millions, served and serve in the military and huge numbers gave their lives for the country

(13) Falsely claimed their were no earmarks in the “stimulus” bill, even though he has never read it and even though hundreds of billions of dollars in the law were special-interest earmarks

(14) Threatened to destroy struggling U.S. companies that do any outsourcing to survive

(15) Said he would end the war in Iraq but refused to say he would lead us to victory there

(16) Failed to inform the American people that under his plan to prevent homes from going into foreclosure, illegal aliens would be eligible to receive your tax dollars to stay in their homes, according to the Center for Immigration Studies

Despite Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano’s bald-faced lie that Mexican drug cartels are not operating in the United States, on 25 February 2009 the FBI arrested 750 Mexican drug cartel operatives inside the United States. This was a joint operation between the FBI, DEA and, yes, the Department of Homeland Security.

On 25 February 2009, Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), the longest serving Democrat in the Senate, publicly charged that Obama was violating the Constitution and therefore the law by conducting illegal power grabs.

On 25 February 2009, although the president failed to mention it during his speech the night before, the White House admitted under pressure that Obama’s socialist medicine program would cost not the cited $634 billion, but actually $1 trillion.

On 25 February 2009, in sworn testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano testified she would fail in her sworn duty to insure all commercial cargo containers entering the United States would be screened for nuclear and radiological weapons by 2012, a mandate set by the Democratic Congress in 2007.

On 25 February 2009, without Sec. of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano’s specific permission to enforce the law, ICE raided a Washington State engine plant in an investigation of gang activity by illegal aliens there. Twenty-eight illegal aliens were arrested. Napolitano ordered an immediate investigation because, according to a spokesman, such law enforcement operations are inconsistent with the president’s policy on illegal aliens.

On 25 February 2009, during an appearance on The Early Show, VP Joe Biden lied by saying Louisiana, under Gov. Bobby Jindal, loses 400 jobs/day. In reality, according to statistics from the Louisiana Workforce Commission, Louisiana is not only NOT losing 400 jobs/day under Governor Jindal, but actually gaining jobs, and the Louisiana unemployment rate is 5.9% under Governor Jindal, as opposed to the national unemployment rate under Obama, which is at 7.3%

In 2007 as a candidate, Obama said you have to make $1 million annually to be rich. In 2008, he lowered it to $250,000 and kept that figure in his February 2009 address to the nation. Two days later, after he promised your taxes would not go up so much as a dime if you make less than $250,000/year, Obama released his budget that included tax rate increases for those making above $209,000 and also included other massive tax increases via deduction eliminations, according to the Cato Institute and Neil Cavuto.

On 27 February 2009, at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Obama endured his most humiliating event since taking power when he was forced to admit before thousands of Marines that they had defeated the enemy in Iraq, in a war he said during the campaign we shouldn’t have fought and believed we would lose. He also was forced to admit in essence that his promises during the campaign of total retreat and surrender within 16 months of his taking power were foolish and that he would leave up to 50,000 troops in Iraq after the drawdown is complete in late 2010.

On 1 March 2009, the NY Post reported that Obama’s “urban czar,” Bronx Boro President Adolfo Carrion, was neck deep in a pay-for-play bribery scheme that saw him receiving huge amounts in campaign donations from developers who donated the money to Carrion immediately before or after he signed off on their project proposals.

In late February 2009, Obama nominated beleagured Washington State Gov. Gary Locke to be his secretary of commerce. Locke is widely believd to be the most corrupt sitting governor in the country, with investigations into campaign finance law violations, brazen conflicts of interest, money laundering and other shady dealings. Locke has been investigated for giving tax breaks to a defense contractor while being in business with that company’s auditor; giving tax breaks to his brother-in-law’s company; personally signing, as governor, a federal loan application for his brother-in-law’s company;being in cahoots with Clinton Chinagate money launderer John Huang, who was a fundraiser for Locke; accepting illegal contributions from Indonesian businessman Ted Sioeng, believed to be an operative for the government of the People’s Republic of China; accepting illegal campaign funds from Thai political operative Praitun Kanchanalak; accepting illegal funds from a Chinese street gang in New York City via a restaurant being used as a front; and accepting huge sums from a Buddhist monestary in Washington State in which the many monks said they did not recall donating any money to Locke.

On 2 March 2009, for the first time since October 1997, the Dow fell below 7,000 as the markets plummeted in reaction to Obama’s wild and undisciplined spending spree in Washington.

On 2 March 2009, the Associated Press reported on Obama having turned the White House into a glitzy, ultra-elite party palace on Wednesday evenings, with entertainers like Earth, Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder and Sweet Honey in the Rock topping the playbills. Conga lines, massive spreads of gourmet food and premium alcohol for all guests are served as America’s unemployment rate skyrockets, companies and charities are closing or endangered at record pace, and our national deficit shoots through the ionosphere.
