Obama Change You Can Believe In … Agenda Disappears from Obama Web Site


Change you can believe in … Obama scubbing his massive agenda and campaign promises. He is not even in office and is already trying to run from his many over-reaching promises to all. Does this mean the sky will not be bluer under an Obama Administration?

For 2+ years Barack Obama railed on “Change” and it catapulted him to a victory in the 2008 Presidential Election over John McCain. Now, we get the first signs of change, over the weekend President-elect Barack Obama scrubbed Change.gov, his transition Web site, deleting most of what had been a massive agenda copied directly from his campaign Web site. Agenda, what agenda?

Gone from Change.gov are the promises on how an Obama administration would handle 25 agenda items — from Iraq and immigration to taxes and urban policy — which the campaign first laid out on the Web site www.BarackObama.com.

As The Washington Times first reported Monday morning, the official agenda on Change.gov has been boiled down to one vague paragraph proclaiming a plan “to revive the economy, to fix our health care, education, and social security systems, to define a clear path to energy independence, to end the war in Iraq responsibly and finish our mission in Afghanistan, and to work with our allies to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, among many other domestic and foreign policy objectives.”

Campaigning on promises to get elected and then changing the horse in midstream to set the bar low as Barack Obama does not want to get tied to. Change? Or politics as usual? Oh, those pesky political promises. What else could Obama do as he could never have governed from such a far left position. Although there are many in the Democratic party on the far left that voted for Obama believing he would do just that.

But political technology professionals said it appeared that Mr. Obama’s team had been too abrupt with Change.gov and didn’t want the new administration tied to the campaign’s list.

“I believe they were a bit out in front of themselves and realized after the fact that they didn’t want to limit their agenda/priorities to what they put on the Web site before they had a clear picture of America’s needs in a postelection environment,” said David All, who as founder of Slatecard.com helped pioneer grass-roots online political donations for conservatives.

Asked why the policy agenda items were deleted, Obama spokesman Nick Shapiro said, “We are retooling the Web site.” And that is code for …? You cannot promise to the Left in a primary and to the center in a general election and not think at some point there will be disgruntled people.

      He never had a agenda but 2 get into office.. All those promises were just smoke screens he was blowing up everyones ASS… the sad thing is all those people fail for it and now we R going to be in deep shit over our heads..

    2. WTF? on November 11th, 2008 2:27 pm

      Not to sound cynical, but what the heck, here goes:

      The Big -0-’s minions probably used a similar process to scrub out of existence his pesky birth records in Kenya.

      Maybe hackers gained access to OSAMA bin Laden Barack SADDAM HUSSEIN Obama’s website, deleting all of those “campaign promises”…lol.

      The “zombies” who supporter/voted for the “Anti-Christ” are in for “rude awakening”.

      The only hope we have is Obama becoming a “lame duck” :-)

      The sad part is that the dupes that voted for him still won’t get it.

    5. Rusty Bridges on November 11th, 2008 3:58 pm

      Is there still an address listed on the site where I can send my mortgage payment book to?

      I’m sure even under McSames proposals things would change because of the massive burden President Bung Hole left us stuck with. We’ll see what happens. If he is that lame..don’t worry you will only have to suffer 4 years unlike the 8 years we’ve suffered under Bush!

      I am not saying this strictly regarding Obama… In my opinion, Presidents of the USA are just puppets strung up to look like the ones in charge… although maybe Presidents are not really the ones who run the show. The Pentagon, the FBI, and the CIA among others may have more power and governance than we really know and once elected the Presidents all have to play by their rules.

    9. Mary UK on November 11th, 2008 5:06 pm

      No surprise there !!!!! The “cult like” hysteria of his campaign was sickening to watch, common sense should have told people that his promises were far fetched.

    10. Maggie on November 11th, 2008 6:07 pm

      Media loves taking people and building them up to a status of an “Idol” and then later engaging in shooting them down again and again.. happens over and over.. and then they sit back and pretend, they played no part in it , to start with.

    11. weasel on November 11th, 2008 6:26 pm

      To all those people who voted for him: the drugs are starting to wear off slowly and reality is setting in. It will be quite painful for you I am afraid.

      Has everyone seen this site? From the desk of Michael Reagan:

      #3 – Put the crack pipe down babydoll…you’ve had more than enough.

    14. Just Bearly on November 11th, 2008 8:49 pm

      Re- #12 I went to ReganAction. I do not know if this ideology will appeal to the masses either, although I think I could lean that way if Regans kid formed a ticket.

      The Regan site made me think of the words Laziez Faire. So I googled those two words. Some how the first hit brought me to an article written approximate one year ago before the mess that has continued unfolding since, and the predicaments we find ourselves in now as a Nation. The articles title is “The Capital Machine and the Death of Laziez Faire”. The article was at a site name+ url- Soapbox.com/index.php?p=124

      It refers to the working class as Exploits of the System there to serve the money hungry Elite…. Regardless of which party is in power, how our government is willing to finance an economic bailout only to further this agenda for the Elite was partly my interpretation. Maybe we all should take these New Republicans to heart if that would help reverse the trend of the Big Government spending and the trends toward “globalization”.

      So my advice to you all in the next 4 years if you can pull it off… Listen to a lot of the Pink Floyd song Money, Stash a lot of cash in your Mattress or buy Exotic cars for investment, and get a lake cabin to live at where there is a good supply of clean water. Lay back and chill for 4 years until we get new management in Washington; Because if you were thinking you were going to work hard to make a lot of $Dollars, then Uncle Sam probably wants a bigger piece of Your paycheck regardless of how much you make!!!

      Westboro Baptist Church and Fred “God hates fags” Phelps plans to picket Madelyn Dunham’s funeral.
      Madelyn Dunham is President-elect Obama’s grandmother.


      Wouldn’t it be nice if the Secret Service kicked the sh%t out of them?

      Or maybe a secret squad of gay ninjas could “take them out”.

      You see a Mass Murderer and purveyor of genocide (Saddam Hussein), I see a normal American.

      You see a world-wide terrorist (Osama Bin Laden), I see a normal American.
      (btw – they are watching McCain’s election night speech. according to you it would be a gaggle of terrorists watching tv plotting to destroy the usa)

      You see the “Anti-Christ” (aka the Devil) and the Devil’s children and the Devil’s wife that will destroy the world. I see a typical American family.

      Get ready for change! Campaigne promises changed already! Come on ,it only took a few days and more to come. Is anyone surprised! I’m heading to the sporting goods store to stock up.

      The democratic Congress and Obama scare the hell out of me. Our new leaders(Pelosi & Reid) are moving all our wealth to there RICH friends who are taking trips,buying up BANKS and getting a BIG BONUS for Christmas.This is reported in the news and nothing is being done but giving them more money. Are you not scared of whats going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    20. katablog.com on November 12th, 2008 4:49 pm

      Remember before the election I made the “claim” that Obama would REQUIRE health insurance for everyone? Remember those who didn’t believe?

      Ah, well it’s not nice to say I told you so, but guess what – I told you so!

      People would have a duty to obtain coverage when affordable options were available to all through employers or through the insurance exchange. This obligation “would be enforced, possibly through the tax system,” the plan says.

      Still happy with that pig in a poke you bought? It’s just the beginning!

    21. katablog.com on November 12th, 2008 5:15 pm

      Yo Monkeys! When you are done contemplating the mandatory health care, Check out the mandatory Civil Service

    22. weasel on November 12th, 2008 5:19 pm

      well they ant get everything doen in 4 years, so he’s already talking about a 2nd term.

      wonder how that will play out with the ‘want it now’ crowd.

      If he increases taxes on the ‘wealthy’ where
      ‘wealthy’ = anyone paying taxes at all how long before the Stock Market just goes belly up completely. Kiss your 401k goodbye. You idiots that voted for Obama because you were willing to pay more taxes for a change will regret it.
      No one is going to put money into the stock market if they are going to have to get taxed on capital gains. Kiss your 401k goodbye. Anyone with any sense will hide their money elsewhere: even real estate. Your only hope is that Obama’s advisors convince him he cannot implement all of his promises to increase tax on the ‘rich’and ‘spread the wealth’.
      You wanted change ? You got it – YES WE CAN (take your money). Better find somewhere to hide it.

      Mandatory civil service? What will the uniforms look like I wonder? China has the green ones, Cuba uses green also. I’m thinking blue with a white star on the hat and red epulats on the shoulders. Hey, I know it kinda bastardizes the flag. Why not? we just bastardized our Constitution and country.

      This is starting to look a little like a communist society when they start indoctrinating your children. Make sure you hang a picture of Barry in your living room or your kids will turn you in to the Civil Service! You then will have to receive “understanding” courses and be reducated. And all you youngin’s out there, Imanual did mention national guard as an “option”. Sounds like a new way of reinstating the draft.

      Anyone that is espousing armed resistance should consider that all leagal firearms bought have paperwork on file with your state government. You are wasting your money if you are buying weapons for fear of gun control, they know you have them and they know where you live. You are accountable if those guns aren’t in your posession should they come looking for them. Just throwing that out there. Also, radical rhetoric on the internet won’t help in the cause to protect the 2nd amendment.

      The best course of action at his point is political. Find a grass roots org and invest your time heavily. If you are a sportsman of any kind and want to keep that freedom join the NRA.

      #26 Komrade Rusty
      I agree. I like the blue with the white star on the hat. Maybe with nice collars like they have on the old ‘Mao’ jackets. Maybe they can train us to march like they do in North Korea !

      EXCLUSIVE: Did Next Commander-in- Chief Falsify Selective Service Registration?
      Never Actually Register? Obama’s Draft Registration Raises Serious Questions

      By Debbie Schlussel

      **** Copyright 2008, Must Cite Debbie Schlussel and link to DebbieSchlussel. com ****

      Did President-elect Barack Hussein Obama commit a federal crime in September of this year? Or did he never actually register and, instead, did friends of his in the Chicago federal records center, which maintains the official copy of his alleged Selective Service registration commit the crime for him?
      It’s either one or the other, as indicated by the release of Barack Obama’s official Selective Service registration for the draft. A friend of mine, who is a retired federal agent, spent almost a year trying to obtain this document through a Freedom of Information Act request, and, after much stonewalling, finally received it and released it to me.
      But the release of Obama’s draft registration and an accompanying document, posted below, raises more questions than it answers. And it shows many signs of fraud, not to mention putting the lie to Obama’s claim that he registered for the draft in June 1979, before it was required by law.
      The official campaign for President may be over. But Barack Obama’s Selective Service registration card and accompanying documents show that questions about him are not only NOT over, but if the signature on the document is in fact his, our next Commander-in- Chief may have committed a federal crime in 2008, well within the statute of limitations on the matter. If it is not his, then it’s proof positive that our next Commander-in- Chief never registered with the Selective Service as required by law. By law, he was required to register and was legally able to do so until the age of 26.
      But the Selective Service System registration (“SSS Form 1″) and accompanying computer print-out (“SSS Print-out), below, released by the Selective Service show the following oddities and irregularities, all of which indicate the document was created in 2008 and backdated:

      * Document Location Number Indicates Obama Selective Service Form was Created in 2008
      First, there is the Document Location Number (DLN) on the form. In the upper right hand corner of the Selective Service form SSS Form 1, there is the standard Bates-stamped DLN, in this case “0897080632, ” which I’ve labeled as “A” on both the SSS Form and the computer printout document. On the form, it reflects a 2008 creation.
      As the retired federal agent notes:

      Having worked for the Federal Government for several decades, I know that the standardization of DLNs have the first two digits of the DLN representing the year of issue. That would mean that this DLN was issued in 2008. The DLN on the computer screen printout is the exact same number, except the 0 and 8 have changed positions making it a 1980 DLN number. And 1980 is the year Senator/President Elect Obama is said to have timely registered. So, why does the machine-stamped DLN reflect this year (2008) and the DLN in the database (which was manually input) reflect a “corrected” DLN year of 1980? Were all the DLNs issued in 1980 erroneously marked with a 2008 DLN year or does the Selective Service use a different DLN system then the rest of the Federal Government? Or was the SSS Form 1 actually processed in 2008 and not 1980?

      It’s quite a “coincidence” . . . that is, if you believe in coincidences, especially in this case.
      Far more likely is that someone made up a fake Selective Service registration to cover Obama’s lack of having done so, and that the person stamping the form forgot (or was unable to) change the year to “80″ instead of the current “80″. They either forgot to fake the DLN number or couldn’t do so.
      And guess where the Selective Service registrations are marked and recorded? Lucky for Obama, it’s his native Chicago. From an article entitled, “Post Office Registration Process”, on the Selective Service website:

      When a young man reaches 18 he can go to any of the 35,000 post offices nationwide to register with Selective Service. There he completes a simple registration card and mails it to the Selective Service System. This begins a multi-step process which results in the man’s registration. Each week approximately 6,000 completed registration cards are sent to the Selective Service System’s Data Management System (DMC) near Chicago, Ill. At the DMC these cards are grouped into manageable quantities. Each card is then microfilmed and stamped with a sequential document locator number. The processed microfilm is reviewed to account for all documents and to ensure that the film quality is within strict standards. After microfilming, the cards are keyed and then verified by a different data transcriber.

      The Document Locator Number (DLN) is an automatic function (Selective Service record-keeping, specifically the DLN is described on pages 7-8 of this Federal Register document), with the first two digits comprising the year, and it was not changed to “08″ in error. So if the form was filed and processed in 1980, how did it get a 2008 DLN?!

      * Obama’s Selective Service Registration Form is Apparently 1990 Form Altered to Appear Like 1980 Form
      On the SSS Form 1, in the lower left hand corner is the form number (SSS Form 1) and the month and year version of the form, labeled as “B”. On this particular Form 1, it clearly shows the month as “FEB” (February), and the year is either “80″ or “90″. The retired federal agent investigated further:

      Magnification of the form both physically (with a 10x glass) or with different image software does not reflect a clear cut result of either a “80″ or a “90″.

      But, checking the history of SSS Form 1 (see http://www.reginfo. gov/public/ do/PRAViewICR? ref_nbr=198002- 3240-001#), it’s apparent that in February 1980, the Selective Service agency withdrew a “Request for a new OMB control number” for SSS Form 1 (see also, here)–meaning the agency canceled its previous request for a new form, and one was never issued in “FEB 1980″.
      Since under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, Pub. L. No. 96-511, 94 Stat. 2812 (Dec. 11, 1980), codified in part at Subchapter I of Chapter 35 of Title 44 a federal agency can not use a form not approved by OMB (Office of Management and Budget), it’s nearly impossible for Senator/President- Elect Obama’s SSS Form 1 to be dated “Feb 1980.” And since that makes it almost certainly dated “Feb 1990,” then how could Barack Obama sign it and the postal clerk stamp it almost ten (10) years before its issue?! Simply not possible.
      The lower right hand corner reflects that the Obama SSS form 1 was approved by OMB with an approval number of 19??0002, labeled as “C”. The double question marks (??) reflect digits that are not completely clear.

      * Barack Obama’s Signature is Dated After Postal Stamp Certifying His Signature
      Barack H. Obama signed the SSS Form 1′s “Today’s date” as July 30, 1980, labeled “D”. But the Postal Stamp reflects the PREVIOUS day’s date of July 29, 1980, labeled “E”. Yes, Obama could have mistakenly written the wrong date, but it is rare and much more unlikely for someone to put a future date than a past date. (Also note how Barry made such a “cute” peace sign with the “b” inside the “O” of his signature. Touching.)

      * Postal Stamp is Incorrect, Discontinued in 1970
      Then, there is the question as to whether the Postal Stamp is real. The “postmark” stamp–labeled “E”–is hard to read, but it is clear that at the bottom is “USPO” which stands typically for United States Post Office. However, current “postmark” validator, registry, or round dater stamps (item 570 per the Postal Operations Manual) shows “USPS” for United States Postal Service. The change from Post Office to Postal Service occurred on August 12, 1970, when President Nixon signed into law the most comprehensive postal legislation since the founding of the Republic–Public Law 91-375. The new Postal Service officially began operations on July 1, 1971.
      Why was an old, obsolete postmark round dater stamp used almost ten (10) years after the fact to validate a legal document . . . that just happened to be Barack Obama’s suspicious Selective Service registration form?

      * Form Shows Barack Obama didn’t have ID
      The SSS Form 1 states “NO ID”, labeled “F”. Since that’s the case, then how did the Hawaiian postal clerk know that the submitter was really Barack H. Obama, who may have been on summer break from attending Occidental College in California. How would they determine whether the registrant was truly registering and not a relative, friend, or other imposter?

      * The Selective Service Data Mgt. Center Stonewalled for Almost a Year on Obama Registration, Until Right Before the Election.
      The retired federal agent who FOIA’d Barack Obama’s Selective Service Registration Form notes:

      Early this year, when I first started questioning whether Obama registered I was told:

      Sir: There may be an error in his file or many other reasons why his registration cannot be confirmed on-line. However, I did confirm with our Data Management Center that he is, indeed, registered with the Selective Service System, in compliance with Federal law. Sincerely,
      Janice L. Hughes/SSS

      Then, they suddenly found the record on September 9, 2008 (prior to my October 13, 2008 request), and stated that his record was filed on September 4, 1980. Did they temporarily change the date on the computer database?
      On the previous FOIA response, they stated that it was filed on September 4, 1980. In my second request I mentioned that Obama could not have filed it in Hawaii on September 4, 1980 as he was attending Occidental College in California, the classes of which commenced August 24, 1980.

      * Other Questions: Missing Selective Service Number, FOIA Response Dated Prior to FOIA Request, Missing Printout Page
      Where is Obama’s Selective Service number (61-1125539- 1) on the card?
      And the retired federal agent notes that the Selective Service Data Management Center prepared its response to his FOIA request prior to the request having been made:

      The last transaction date is 09/04/80 [DS: labeled "G"], but the date of the printout is 09/09/08 [DS: labeled "H"]. My FOIA was dated October 13 so why did they prepare the printout BEFORE I submitted my FOIA? I gave them no “heads up” that I was sending it. In fact it was not mailed until late October–around the 25th. Also, notice the printout was page 1 of 2 [DS: labeled "I"].

      Hmmm . . . where is the other page, and what’s on it?
      A lot of questions here. And a lot of huge hints that this government-released , official Barack Obama Selective Service registration was faked. Either he signed the fake backdated document, or someone else faked his signature and he never registered for the draft (and lied about it).
      Which is it?
      It’s incredible that our impending Commander-in- Chief either didn’t register for the draft or did so belatedly and fraudulently.
