"In my own life in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much," she said. "See, that's why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service, "...
                                 Michelle Obama

No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn't perform any official duties. But this hasn't deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.

Just think,  Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary from her husband's salary.

Total Personal Staff members for other first ladies paid by taxpayers:

                          Mamie Eisenhower:   One-- paid for personally out of President's salary.
                          Jackie Kennedy:         One
                          Roseline Carter:         One
                          Barbara Bush:            One
                          Hilary Clinton:          Three
                          Laura Bush:              One
                          Michele Obama:         Twenty-two


How things have changed!  If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up  McDonald cheeseburgers,prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for  these servants of Ms Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by YOU, John Q. Public:

Michele Obama's personal staff:

One..      $172,200 - Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)
Two..      $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and       Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)
Three..    $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary for Mrs. Obama)
Four..      $102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y. (Special  Assistant to the President
                           and Director of Communications for the First Lady)
Five..      $100,000 - Winter, Melissa (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
Six..        $90,000  
Medina , David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
Seven..      $84,000 - Lilyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)
Eight..      $75,000 - Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)
Nine..      $70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Project for the First Lady)
Ten..        $65,000 - Burnough, Erinn (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

Twelve..    $62,000 - Goodman,  Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)
Thirteen..  $60,000  Fitz, Alan O.(Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director
                          for the First Lady)
Fourteen..  $57,500 - Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)
Fifteen...    $52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)
Sixteen..    $50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)
Seventeen..  $45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)
Eighteen..  $43,000 - Tubman, Samanth a (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)
Nineteen..  $40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)
Twenty..    $36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)

Twenty-Two.. $35,000 - Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of  Correspondence for the First Lady)
(total    $1,591,200 in annual salaries)

There has NEVER been anyone in the White House at any time who has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady's social life.

One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense.
Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49,  and "First Hairstylist" Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom traveled aboard Air Force One to 
Europe .

 Yes, I know, The Canadian Free Press had to publish this, perhaps because 
America no longer has a free press and the USAmedia is  too scared that they might be considered racist or suffer at the hands of Obama.

Sorry 
America !

Subject: FW: Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Dr. Charles Krauthammer

 Dr. Krauthammer is on Fox News. He is an M.D. and a lawyer and is paralyzed from the neck down.  A friend went to hear Charles Krauthammer. He listened with 25 others in a closed room. What he says here, is NOT 2nd-hand but 1st. The ramifications are staggering for us, our children and their children. 

Last Monday was a profound evening; Dr. Charles Krauthammer spoke to the Center for the American Experiment. He is a brilliant intellectual, seasoned & articulate. He is forthright and careful in his analysis, and never resorts to emotions or personal insults. He is NOT a fear monger nor an extremist in his comments and views. He is a fiscal conservative, and has received a Pulitzer Prize for writing. He is a frequent contributor to Fox News and writes weekly for the Washington Post.

The entire room was held spellbound during his talk. I have summarized his comments, as we are living in uncharted waters economically and internationally.  Even 2 Dems at my table agreed with everything he said! If you feel like forwarding this to those who are open minded and have not drunk the Kool-Aid, feel free. 
                                     Summary of his comments:

                     1. Mr. Obama is a very intellectual, charming individual. He is not to be underestimated. He is a cool customer who doesn't show his emotions. It's very hard to know what's behind the mask. The taking down of the 
Clinton dynasty was an amazing accomplishment. The Clintons still do not understand what hit them. Obama was in the perfect place at the perfect time. 

                     2. Obama has political skills comparable to Reagan and Clinton. He has a way of making you think he's on your side, agreeing with your position, while doing the opposite. Pay no attention to what he SAYS; rather, watch what he DOES! 

                     3. Obama has a ruthless quest for power. He did not come to 
Washington to make something out of himself, but rather to change everything, including dismantling capitalism. He can't be straightforward on his ambitions, as the public would not go along. He has a heavy hand, and wants to level the playing field with income redistribution and punishment to the achievers of society. He would like to model the USA to Great Britain or Canada

                     4. His three main goals are to control ENERGY, PUBLIC EDUCATION, and NATIONAL HEALTHCARE by the Federal government. He doesn't care about the auto or financial services industries, but got them as an early bonus. The cap and trade will add costs to everything and stifle growth. Paying for FREE college education is his goal. Most scary is his healthcare program, because if you make it FREE and add 46,000,000 people to a Medicare-type single-payer system, the costs will go through the roof. The only way to control costs is with massive RATIONING of services, like in 
CanadaGod forbid! 

                     5. He has surrounded himself with mostly far-left academic types. No one around him has ever even run a candy store. But they are going to try and run the auto, financial, banking and other industries. This obviously can't work in the long run. Obama is not a socialist; rather he's a far-left secular progressive bent on nothing short of revolution. He ran as a moderate, but will govern from the hard left. Again, watch what he does, not what he says.

                     6. 
Obama doesn't really see himself as President of the United States, but more as a ruler over the world. He sees himself above it all, trying to orchestrate & coordinate various countries and their agendas. He sees moral equivalency in all cultures. His apology tour in Germany and England was a prime example of how he sees America, as an imperialist nation that has been arrogant, rather than a great noble nation that has at times made errors.  This is the first President ever who has chastised our allies and appeased our enemies!

                     7. He is now handing out goodies.
  He hopes that the bill (and pain) will not come due until after he is reelected in 2012. He would like to blame all problems on Bush from the past, and hopefully his successor in the future.  He has a huge ego, and Dr. Krauthammer believes he is a narcissist.

                     8. Republicans are in the wilderness for a while, but will emerge strong.
 Republicans are pining for another Reagan, but there will never be another like him. Krauthammer believes Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty & Bobby Jindahl (except for his terrible speech in February) are the future of the party.  Newt Gingrich is brilliant, but has baggage.  Sarah Palin is sincere and intelligent, but needs to really be seriously boning up on facts and info if she is to be a serious candidate in the future.

We need to return to the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal responsibility, strong national defense, and state's rights.

                     9. The current level of spending is irresponsible and outrageous. We are spending trillions that we don't have. 
 This could lead to hyperinflation, depression or worse. No country has ever spent themselves into prosperity.

The media is giving Obama, Reid and Pelosi a pass because they love their agenda.  But eventually the bill will come due and people will realize the huge bailouts didn't work, nor will the stimulus package.  These were trillion-dollar payoffs to Obama's allies, unions and the Congress to placate the left, so he can get support for #4 above.

                     10. The election was over in mid-September when Lehman brothers failed, fear and panic swept in, we had an unpopular President, and the war was grinding on indefinitely without a clear outcome. 
 The people are in pain, and the mantra of change caused people to act emotionally.    Any Dem would have won this election; it was surprising it was as close as it was.

                     11. 
In 2012, if the unemployment rate is over 10%, Republicans will be swept back into power.

If it's under 8%, the Dems continue to roll.  If it's between 8-10%, it will be a dogfight. It will all be about the economy.   I hope this gets you really thinking about what's happening in Washington and Congress.

  There is a left-wing revolution going on, according to Krauthammer, and he encourages us to keep the faith and join the loyal resistance.  The work will be hard, but we're right on most issues and can reclaim our country, before it's far too late.  Do yourself a long term favor; send this to all who will listen to an intelligent assessment of the big picture.   All our futures and children's futures depend on our good understanding of what is really going on in DC, and our action pursuant to that understanding!! It really IS up to each of us to take individual action!! Start with educating your friends and neighbors!!!
