Maxine Waters of California is an example of Democrats
entrenched in Congress who have contributed to the
mortgage crisis and economic downturn and if allowed
will turn this country into a socialist state.


From a Wall Street Journal article dated March 12, 2009:
“Waters Helped Bank Whose Stock She Once Owned
California Democrat Has Championed Minority-Owned OneUnited on Capitol Hill and Criticized Its Government Regulators”
“WASHINGTON — When Rep. Barney Frank was looking to aid a Boston-based lender last fall, the Massachusetts Democrat urged Maxine Waters, a colleague on the House Financial Services Committee, to “stay out of it,” he says.

The reason: Ms. Waters, a longtime congresswoman from California, had close ties to the minority-owned institution, OneUnited Bank.

Ms. Waters and her husband have both held financial stakes in the bank. Until recently, her husband was a director. At the same time, Ms. Waters has publicly boosted OneUnited’s executives and criticized its government regulators during congressional hearings. Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.”
“Such potential conflicts of interest are more serious as the banking system’s crisis has led the government to take an increasingly active role in overseeing financial institutions, including OneUnited. The financial-services committee on which Ms. Waters sits oversees banking issues, and the lawmaker is a potential future chairman.”
“Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, a watchdog group, says Ms. Waters should have recused herself from any matters involving the bank. If her support helped OneUnited, “it was a disservice to her constituents,” Ms. Krumholz says.”
“OneUnited’s executives have donated $12,500 to Ms. Waters’s election campaigns.”
“Ms. Waters and her husband, Sidney Williams, were investors in two African-American owned California banks that merged with other lenders in 2002 to form OneUnited. Congressional financial-disclosure forms show Ms. Waters acquired OneUnited stock worth between $250,000 and $500,000 in March 2004, as did Mr. Williams. Mr. Williams joined the board of OneUnited that year.”
“In a brief interview in January, Ms. Waters said she was unaware the bank received $12 million of TARP money, which arrived in December. OneUnited was “just a small” bank, she said.

A provision designed to aid OneUnited was written into the federal bailout legislation by Mr. Frank, who is chairman of the financial-services panel. Mr. Frank has said he inserted the provision to help the only African-American owned bank in his home state. He said in an interview that Ms. Waters’s interest “had zero impact on the outcome because I would have done it anyway.””

Peterson Air Force Base, Presidents Day, February 16, 2009, Barack Obama’s picture removed, Holiday commemorating the birthdays of past presidents, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, NAACP complains

February 16, 2009

From the Colorado Springs, CO, Gazette, February 13, 2009,
an article about Presidents Day and another Obama
controversy:

“Photo of Obama is taken down at Peterson”

“President Barack Obama’s picture was removed this week from a Presidents Day sign at the Peterson Air Force Base commissary after customers complained that the image did not fit the holiday commemorating the birthdays of past presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

The head of the local NAACP and a commissary employee say it was blatant racism.

The picture of the first black president accompanied a sign near the entrance listing the government-run military grocery store’s operating hours on for Presidents Day. The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Employees took the sign down after customers complained that the holiday wasn’t about the current president, according to the Defense Commissary Agency, which oversees the base grocery stores.”

“They said four customers had complained that Presidents Day is to honor Washington and Lincoln, not Obama, causing the agency to remove the Obama image.

“The customers stated it is inaccurate to associate other presidents with this holiday and asked that we remove President Obama’s photo from the flier,” the agency said in a statement.

The commissary came up with a new, less controversial notice.

“The one presently posted is titled Washington’s Birthday and has no photos,” the agency said.”

US Representative Sue Myrick, United States Congressman, NC Representative , US Constitution, Congress, Charlotte office, North Carolina constituents, The WHY initiative, Restore the Constitutional Republic, Update, February 13, 2009

February 13, 2009

I called the Charlotte NC office of Representative Sue Myrick
today, February 13, 2009. I decided to call the Charlotte
office after contacting the Washington DC office on February
5, 2009 and sending an email to Sue Myrick. I have received
no response. I was prompted to contact Sue Myrick’s office
after the absurd response that a commenter on my blog
received from Andy Polk, an aide of hers. I called this
morning to give Sue Myrick another chance. It appears that
a lot of the problems the public is having in getting
straight answers from congressmen is the filtering of
information being done by their aides. Since I had written
several articles about Sue Myrick as part of the “WHY”
Initiative I wanted to be fair to her. One of these articles
has received approx 2000 views in less than 24 hours.

A nice lady answered the phone. I gave her a brief overview
of why I called. She wanted to pass me on to a press
secretary and I declined. I simply, in fairness, wanted to
inform them of our efforts and resolve to get answers.
I asked that the lady pass this information on to Sue
Myrick.

Obviously Sue Myrick and most people in Congress are very
busy and get many requests. I understand that. I, so far,
have no reason to dislike Sue Myrick. I have heard good
things about her. However, to my knowledge, she has
expressed no interest in the eligibility issues surrounding
Obama. I have no record of her standing up in Congress
and challenging his eligibility or asking questions. If
Andy Polk speaks for her, then we have a problem.

“Ignorance is not bliss.”

Representative Sue Myrick and all members of Congress. We
are going to hold you accountable to the US Constitution
and the American people.

WHY did you believe Obama was eligible?

From Restore the Constitutional Republic February 12, 2009:

Another Follow-Up to Senator DeMint’s Staffer
Posted February 12th, 2009 by restore
Dear Mr. Headley,
I hope you are doing well.  Because I haven’t heard back from you since my last post of a week or so ago, I did want to provide you with an update on this situation. 
 
At the onset, let me say that I guess I may have been a bit naïve in the belief that Senator DeMint’s relationship with my late brother would have afforded me an opportunity to engage in a forthright dialogue with him regarding why he chose not to fully investigate Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president.  While the answers you supplied seem to indicate that he relied on no actual evidence at all, I was disheartened that the Senator chose not even to reply to me.  At this point, I’m not certain the Senator even saw my request.
 
A colleague of mine, Citizen Wells, has been making similar requests of NC Rep. Sue Myrick, and the result of the ambiguous replies we’ve received in our two inquiries has led to the creation of The WHY Initiative.  Since, through our network of organizations and bloggers, we have fairly immediate access to countless thousands of people across the country, we are spearheading this grassroots effort to be heard by our elected officials—and to hear directly from them, and not their staffers (no disrespect intended).  We will not relent until we get some meaningful answers instead of the Obama camp’s talking points with which the staffers have obviously been provided.
 
Now, how serious are we about this?  Let’s take a look.
 
After our brief exchange last week, I wrote an article detailing it:
 
 
Citizen Wells did as well:
 
 
Then, we called upon faithful patriots across our nation to help us disseminate this information.  Is it working?  Well, again, let’s take a look.
 
Mr. Headley, please do a Google search on your name:
 
 
As of this writing, Citizen Wells’ article ranks third.
 
Now do a Google search of your name, adding “jim demint”:
 
 
As of this writing, that article is Google’s first entry.
 
The voting public IS going to learn the truth—one way or another.
 
Through The WHY Initiative we are going to continue to insist that we receive real answers from those we elected to represent us.  State by state, we will be working to inform the voting public of just how (un)responsive their elected officials are to them.  No answers?  No campaign $upport and no votes.  If those in office will not answer to We the People, then they simply should not be in office.
 
Moreover, we’re not asking for Senator DeMint, or any other elected official, to supply their answers to the public at large; we are asking that they simply enter into a meaningful dialogue with the representatives of The WHY Initiative.
 
I’ll admit that our country is presently in a shambles, and the current administration is working to destroy all we hold dear; but, the position of the organization I chair, as well as scores of other groups, is that this administration is not even a constitutionally valid one, so every piece of this administration’s agenda is criminally fraudulent, and ultimately inconsequential to our great nation.  Once the truth is embraced, this constitutional disaster should end up in our history books as nothing more than a footnote.
 
Just look at what this UPOTUS (Unconstitutional President of the US) and his Democratic cronies are doing.  They are applying their subversive agenda to assure that conservatives will have no meaningful voice in this country for several years.  Why in the world would any truly patriotic statesman not yell to the top of his lungs that there is a constitutional problem that needs to be addressed by Congress?  Exposing the fraud not only exposes the UPOTUS, but also those who were complicit in his crimes (the DNC).  Those who would act on behalf of our Constitution are virtually guaranteed re-election, and historically, will be regarded as heroes.
 
By the way, we have established a new repository of information regarding our elected officials’ lack of due diligence in this matter.  It bears an appropriate name: CongressWatch (https://congresswatch.wordpress.com).
 
Please, Mr. Headley, do not think that I am merely capitalizing on Senator DeMint’s relationship with my late brother, or that I’m trading on Terry’s legacy.  In his short 45-year lifespan, Terry Haskins embraced truth, and truth is something we’re simply not receiving.  I am persuaded that my brother would have led this effort for the preservation of our Constitution.  He never shrank from what was truly important.
 
You’re a nice guy; but now, I want to speak with the Senator.
 
Kindest regards,
 
Dean Haskins
Chairman, Restore the Constitutional Republic
