Sachs, who appears in the White House’s visitor records more than anyone else, may be the most important government official you’ve probably never heard of. A former investment banker, assistant Treasury secretary under President Clinton, and onetime favorite for an undersecretary job in Geithner’s Treasury, Sachs was instrumental in crafting the Obama administration’s handling of the banking crisis. He’s expected to step down soon.

We include Genachowski–an old friend of Obama’s from Harvard Law School–on our list because he’s the agency chief with the most recorded visits in the White House visitor records to date. Tech policy, which the FCC regulates, has been a focus of the Obama White House. Genachowski’s White House meetings tend to be with top advisors like regulatory czar Cass Sunstein and Cabinet Secretary Christopher Lu, records show.

Earlier this year Obama tapped Stern–not a noted budget expert–to a commission that will suggest ways to reduce the federal deficit. The appointment raised eyebrows and produced charges of favoritism: The SEIU spent nearly $28 million to help send Obama to the White House, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Although Stern’s a frequent White House visitor, the records don’t show that he’s had any individual meetings with the president.

Jon Voight has written a startling letter to President Obama and the American people that he read on Mike Huckabee’s Fox News program Saturday.
In one year, the American people are witnessing the greatest lie that is cleverly orchestrated by President Obama and his whole administration. The lie is a potent aggression that feeds the needs of people who either have not educated themselves enough to understand the assault upon us all or the very poor and needy who live to be taken care of.
President Obama feeds these people poison, giving them the idea that they are entitled to take from the wealthier who have lived and worked in a democracy that understands that capitalism is the only truth that keeps a nation healthy and fed. Now the lie goes very deep and President Obama has been cleverly trained in the Alinsky method and it would be very important that every American knows what that method is.
It is a socialistic, Marxist teaching and with it, little by little, he rapes this nation, taking down our defenses, making new language for the Islamic extremists. The world looked up to us as a symbol of hope and prosperity now wonders what will become of the entire world if America is losing its power.
The American people who understand exactly what is taking place have come together in the thousands, vowing to try to stay together as a unit of love and freedom for all men and women, from all walks of life, shivering to think that this once great nation will be a third world country.
This will be the first president to ever weaken the United States of America. President Obama uses his aggression and arrogance for his own agenda, against the will of the American people when he should be using his will and aggression against our enemies.
Every loving American for peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the liars and agitators.
Let us all stay in Gods light. Let no man put asunder. We can and we will prevail. God bless us all!
Man proposes and God disposes. A big part of the trouble for Barack Obamaand all those crackerjack leftwing strategists and the brigades of Alinsky thugketeers is that they’ve never gotten the hang of the second part of that old axiom. For the left, God disposes of nothing, because God is, well, nothing more than an opiate. For the rest of us who believe in God, we know otherwise. History is strewn with fine examples of man’s grand designs coming athwart something – anything — that makes those designs not worth the paper their drawn on. By chance, does anyone know what happened to the British North American Empire?
So it is today in the United States of America. We have a president and a party (infested with a cabal of heathen leftists) whose grand design is to bloat the state and, hence, their power. But the left’s smart plans have come athwart something, that something being the freedom-loving intransience of God-fearing conservatives and many other Americans (God-fearing as well). What Barack Obama and the left have gotten is what they never expected: a political war — perhaps one on an epic scale that will bring down the House of FDR.
Russia needs more weapons to punch through America’s new missile defence shield, Vladimir Putin said yesterday in blunt remarks that will complicate efforts to cut the nuclear arsenals of the former Cold War rivals.
The Russian Prime Minister, reasserting himself as the country’s real ruler, said that Moscow should press ahead with a new generation of weapons to stop the Americans doing “whatever they want”.
The armed forces are said to have carried out “war games” in which nuclear missiles were fired and troops practised an amphibious landing on the country’s coast.
Documents obtained by Wprost, one of Poland’s leading news magazines, said the exercise was carried out in conjunction with soldiers from Belarus.
The manoeuvres are thought to have been held in September and involved about 13,000 Russian and Belarusian troops.
Poland, which has strained relations with both countries, was cast as the “potential aggressor”.
First reports on the tragic death of Poland’s President Lech Kaczynski [photo with Obama], his wife, top general, head of their central bank, and many more top officials in a plane crash in Smolensk, Russia are said by FSB sources reporting to Prime Minister Putin to have been a “successful decapitation” of that Nation’s leadership putting into power the speaker of Poland’s parliament and a former defense minister Bronislaw Komorowski who unlike Kaczynski has been a long time ally of Moscow.
President Medvedev has set up a commission headed by Prime Minister Putin to investigate this incident and ordered Russian Minister of Extraordinary Situations Sergey Shoigu to personally supervise all investigative forces on the scene of this catastrophic crash.
Kaczynski and those government officials accompanying him had been in Russia to commemorate the World War II Katyn Massacre of over 22,000 Polish prisoners of war by Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s secret police in 1940. Putin had also attended this ceremony with his Polish counterpart but failed in his remarks to offer an apology to Poland or to label this most atrocious of actions a war crime.

Rarely does a day go by that we don’t see the community organizer in front of a camera pretending to be an authority on something. His mindless and childish babbling is really becoming an annoyance.
We generally listen to someone speak because we can learn from their expertise.
But listening to Obama speak is like listening to the ramblings of an incoherent idiot. He is an authority on nothing – unless you are interested in what Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshal Davis, and George Soros have to say.

He may not be the future former president’s most frequent White House visitor (that would be the SEIU’s Andy Stern), but AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is one of Obama’s most loyal comrades. Echoing the party line during a toxic speech at Harvard on Wednesday night.
Trumka described “radio voices” as “forces of hate” for creating an us-versus-them mentality that can divide the country and hinder enacting economic policies to fix the economy.
