President Obama

Judge Roy Moore, former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and WorldNetDaily columnist, says it is incumbent on Congress to determine if Barack Obama is a usurper. During an interview last week on my radio program, Judge Moore said:

“I see it very simply. Why doesn’t the president have to show that he’s a natural born citizen? There’s so many questions about that and yet, the Constitution requires the president be a natural born citizen. …We’ve had all kind of suits filed, and the press doesn’t mention them and the courts continually reject them. I don’t understand it. I think they can holler political questions all they wish, but it’s a simple fact that if he’s not a natural born citizen, he’s not qualified.

“Why it doesn’t go forward, I can’t explain that. It’s troubling to me because we’ll suffer the consequences if we ignore our Constitution.”

Moore, who was removed from office in 2003 for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument he had placed in the Alabama Judicial Building, is the chairman of the Foundation for Moral Law in Montgomery, Ala.

Returning unity to America

I attended the radio and television host Glenn Beck “We Surround Them” rally in Melbourne, Fla., Friday, one of many held simultaneously nationwide. Melbourne’s event drew more than 500 citizens and national attention when the site was included in “cut-ins” during the Fox News Channel broadcast.

During the program, Beck announced the launch of “The 9.12 Project,” an effort designed to bring America together. The beefed-up servers hosting the website immediately crashed as a result of the enormous demand from Americans seeking information.

For at least the first 20 hours after Beck’s broadcast on Fox News Channel, visitors to the site received an error message saying the server was temporarily unable to service requests due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems, and urged them to try again later.

“The 9.12 Project” was launched to show that Americans are unifying to push back against a growing tyrannical government. Following the broadcast, Beck did another hour on the Internet. Digger’s Realm has posted the entire hour, in case you missed it.

What has Obama done by now?

The Nachum List tracks all of Barack Obama’s activities during his first 100 days in office. It’s a comprehensive listing, with links, of everything that’s been done under his stewardship in the White House.

Don Surber is keeping a list as well. His catalog lists Obama’s gaffes and mistakes. Read them and feel free to add to them at Surber’s Daily Mail blogsite.

Social networking

Social networking and blogs now are more popular than e-mail, according to Nielsen ratings. Two-thirds of us now use “member communities” – whose popularity is being boosted by the growing use of mobiles for Internet access.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt says microblogging eventually will marginalize corporate e-mail.

Clicking for coupons

Consumers click for coupons. As consumers troll online to save money, searches that include value words such as “coupons” rose 161 percent in December vs. 2007 to 19.9 million and “discount” rose 26 percent to 7.9 million.

While many families are looking for ways to cut back on spending, Walmart has made it easier to shop from home with a website that catalogs thousands of items.

Fetching friends

You gotta love this – a Flash application that fetches your friends and followers from Twitter when you click the “Whack!” button, then displays them for you, letting you quickly paginate through them. The list of your followers can be sorted by last update or alphabetically, either ascending or descending by Twitter ID. You can filter the list in several ways: only friends or only followers, all friends or all followers, and mutual friends. Very cool!
