Two Days Left for Chebama Blog

What started out as a school project to sell t-shirts and design a website, ended in the documentation of Obama's first year as president. I spent one to two hours per day to scour the news and find articles I thought were important to keep at my fingertips.

T-shirt sales never really took off. It was a fun experience, but nobody really picked up on the idea, and I didn't want to promote heavily to news organizations, radio programs etc., because of worries with copyright, even though Fidel Castro does not believe in intellectual property rights. I figured that if leftists can capitalize on Che and promote communism with t-shirts, posters and movies, a conservative could do the same and promote the opposite message.

It's been fun, but I would like to devote that one to two hours a day preparing for disaster. As a survivalist at heart, I may be preparing for the downfall of the Obama administration and possibly our government/money system/nation as a whole. Or it may just be the next ice storm that paralyzes my neighborhood.

Hyperinflation is maybe one year away -- two at the most -- ready to destroy the economy, ready to destroy our beloved USA. Our nation will continue to suffer from "Man-Caused Disasters" (terrorism) because the terrorists know that Obama doesn't really care. His words lack any force behind them. He's out snorkeling right now in the Hawaiian surf. He's out on the golf course right now. And when he IS in the White House, he's hosting parties for Hollywood leftists and party crashers. Even a Jack Bauer could not save us when an entire administration is filled with nothing but Chicago party hacks and communists. And I haven't said anything about Capital Hill.

We may be facing food shortages, major industrial strikes, work shortages, hyper-unemployment, and possibly flu plagues and other natural-caused disasters. Please acquire food and emergency supplies to withstand the storm. Then help your neighbors.

Thanks to all who came here, and especially to those who bought t-shirts. Half never sold. I guess they will go into my preparedness clothing supplies. Take care!

Minnesota University Wants K-12 Teachers to Hate America

by Kyle Olson | Posted Dec 30th 2009 at 7:41 am

We’re accustomed to strange political phenomena rising out of Minnesota.

We can accept the occasional Jesse Ventura or Al Franken winning statewide office, because the state’s voters obviously like to be different.

But we doubt even the most offbeat citizens of that state would approve of the new K-12 teacher education program that’s been proposed for the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus.

While the rest of the nation is trying to force teachers to help our children reach their potential, the university’s College of Education and Human Development wants to make sure future teachers are more anti-American, so they can share that philosophy with their future students.

We couldn’t even begin to make something like this up.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, College of Education officials recently established the “Race, Culture, Class and Gender Task Group.” It’s charged with helping to devise a new system for training prospective K-12 teachers, because current teachers lack “cultural competence,” a factor officials believe contributes to the poor performance of minority students.

The task force has issued its final report, which the group Foundation for Individual Rights in Education brought to light, and officials from the College of Education are expected to review its recommendations in January.

What’s the task force’s main recommendation? That new teachers be immersed in a liberal political agenda that’s highly critical of American social norms, particularly the notion that all people can positively influence their own destiny through hard work and determination.

The task force “recommended that aspiring teachers must repudiate the notion of the ‘American Dream’ and instead “must embrace – and be prepared to teach our state’s kids – the task force’s own vision of America as an oppressive hellhole: racist, sexist and homophobic,” according to writer Katherine Kersten of the Star Tribune.

“The report advocates making race, class and gender politics the ‘overarching framework’ for all teaching courses at the university,” Kersten wrote. “It calls for evaluating future teachers in both coursework and practice teaching, based on their willingness to fall into intellectual lockstep.”

Napolitano: No War Here

by William Kristol on December 30, 2009 09:11 AM

It's worth reading (don't worry, it's short) Janet Napolitano's op-ed in USA Today. As if to confirm Dick Cheney's claim that the Obama administration doesn't understand we're at war, Napolitano never uses the word...war. Nor does she mention Islam, Yemen or Nigeria -- nor any of the details of the incident, nor the particulars of the government failures over the last few months.

Lots of op-eds ghost-written for cabinet secretaries are stupid. But this one may outdo them all in its vagueness and avoidance of substance, in its managing to be at once bureaucratic and cloying, and in speaking to the American people as if they are children. She attempts to reassure, and fails.

By the way, since this was a plot hatched overseas by people whom our intelligence agencies are listening in on and trying to bump off -- is Napolitano really the appropriate lead official? It's revealing who the White House put out Sunday -- Napolitano and press secretary Robert Gibbs. For the Obama White House, it's all spin and TSA procedures. Do we still have a CIA director? I'd heard Panetta wasn't getting along with the White House...but is he even in the loop?

Dick Cheney: Barack Obama 'trying to pretend'

By MIKE ALLEN | 12/30/09 4:21 AM EST | Politico

Former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Barack Obama on Tuesday of “trying to pretend we are not at war” with terrorists, pointing to the White House response to the attempted sky bombing as reflecting a pattern that includes banishing the term “war on terror” and attempting to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center.

“[W]e are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe,” Cheney said in a statement to POLITICO. “Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency – social transformation—the restructuring of American society.”

Barack Obama gets an 'F' for protecting Americans

by Toby Harnden | December 30th, 2009

There is no more solemn duty for an American commander-in-chief than the martialling of “all elements of American power” – the phrase Obama himself used on Monday – to protect the people of the United States. In that key respect, Obama failed on Christmas Day, just as President George W. Bush failed on September 11th (though he succeeded in the seven years after that).

Yes, the buck stops in the Oval Office. Obama may have rather smugly given himself a “B+” for his 2008 performance but he gets an F for the events that led to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarding a Detroit-bound plane in Amsterdam with a PETN bomb sewn into his underpants. He said today that a “systemic failure has occurred”. Well, he’s in charge of that system.

Krauthammer Rips Obama's "Flacid, Meaningless" Words On Iranian Revolution

Obama should demand the resignation of Secretary Janet Napolitano and fire her if she refuses to resign

Official bungling led to plane attack
Examiner Editorial | December 28, 2009

Nearly 300 passengers and crew members of Northwest Airlines flight 253 came within a heartbeat of being incinerated on Christmas Day because 23-year-old Nigerian Jihadist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab somehow smuggled explosives past sophisticated anti-terrorist security measures in Europe. That the passengers and crew members survived is because of Jasper Schuringa, a brave man from Amsterdam who prevented Abdulmutallab from detonating a bomb sewn into his underwear. The device was made of pentaerythritol tetranitrate, an explosive that has been around since before World War I. Three more factors in this near-tragedy deserve particular attention:

The system didn't work JANET!

If the system worked, Obama must want terrorists blowing up jets from sea to shining sea. Another win for Alinski/Cloward-Piven tactics.
