Be Seeing You at the Polls: A New Get Out the Vote Video - Inspired by The Prisoner

I've done another get out the vote video...this one using old footage from the famous cult classic television show, The Prisoner. For better or worse, I think Number Six's outspoken honesty, courage, and eventual success gave me a lot of hope as a child as a teenager and later as a young man.



One of the things that always thrilled me about the show's final episode is that Number Six is finally recognized as a role model and manages to pull off a tidy escape with his other "doubter" friends. I'm indebted to Patrick McGoohan, in part, for my outspokenness, my coolness, my villainous enunciation, and my fun with music.

Get Out the Vote Campaign - I'm Excited for the Anti-Marxist Tidal Wave

I thought I'd try my hand at the traditional get out the vote commerical. Here's my version. It features my thanks to all the folks who helped me get out the message of young Obama's commitment to Marxist ideology. In this video, I tip my hat to my father, Richard Drew, my co-author Michael Patrick Leahy, and published authors Michael Savage who wrote Tricke Up Poverty, Paul Kengor who wrote Dupes and Stanley Kurtz who just published Radical-In-Chief.



All three leaned hard on my observations and broke out new details consistent with my take that Obama was an ardent Marxist by the fall of 1980. I grateful that they gave thoughtful attention to my brief insight into the mind of President Obama.

Implications of President Obama's Marxist Roots: On the Air with Prof. Paul Kengor - Author of Dupes

Image
I'm steadily trying to get out the word about young Obama's commitment to Marxist thought.  I'm grateful to the folks at the Glen Meaken show for giving me some air time this morning.  Check it out here.

I was honored to be interviewed this morning by Dr. Paul Kengor. (Kengor was the guest host for the Glen Meakem radio program in Western Pennsylvania.) Kengor is a professor at Grove City College and the executive director of the College's Center for Vision and Values.

As you may know, Kengor is a regular featured columnist at Townhall.com, a web-based publication primarily dedicated to conservative politics. I know him, however, from his most known best selling book, "God and Ronald Reagan." Kengor is currently finishing a major work on Ronald Reagan’s role in his administration’s effort to undermine the Soviet Union.

I was grateful to learn that my report on young Obama's commitment to Marxist-Leninist thought has been published in Kengor's newes…

Flexing Our Power: The New Augustine 25 - Orange County Voter's Guide

I have always wanted to provide an Orange County Voter's Guide. This one is liberally borrowed from the the Lincoln Club Voter Guide which was endorsed by Chip Hanlon's Red County Blog. Please do not take this with you into the voter booth - I think you are better off voting by mail. (If you strongly disagree with any of my picks, please do not hesitate to leave a comment.)

AUGUSTINE 25 CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENTS

FEDERAL
U.S. Senate: Carly Fiorina
She's getting hammered for laying off HP employees - I want her to use that same skill to lay-off federal employees.

40th Congressional District: Ed Royce
Royce is a conservative.

46th Congressional District: Dana Rohrabacher
Rohrabacher is one of my hero - a bold, courageous guy - who surfs.

47th Congressional District: Van Tran
Tran would be a gift compared to Loretta Sanchez. Sanchez has a creepy side that came out during this campaign.

48th Congressional District: John Campbell
Campbell voted for TARP...but I thought it was nece…

Dr. Drew’s Take on Young Obama’s Marxism Now Included in Michael Savage’s New Book, Trickle Up Poverty

Image
A year ago, I was a lonely voice in the wilderness. I knew the young Barack Obama when he was a sophomore at Occidental College in 1980-1981, and – as far as I could tell – I was the only one who knew him who was willing to verify that young Obama was definitely a Marxist socialist ideologue.

To my frustration, it looked like the McCain campaign did not want to investigate Obama’s past. McCain, in fact, piously asserted that paying attention to something as outrageous as Rev. Wright’s anti-white hostility was a non-issue for the Presidential campaign. Personally, I was heart-broken. I was frustrated that Obama’s extremist ideology was hiding in plain sight and the voters had no idea what was really going on. I didn’t give up. I also sent e-mails to Fox News and the Orange County Register. I tried to get in touch with Ann Coulter. It was all fruitless.

This week, for the first time in a long time, however, I feel relieved and at peace. I learned last week that the story of my…

Dr. Drew’s Website Tips: Check It Out - Just Discovered New Site for Folks with Multiple Sclerosis

Image
Tricia and I have a number of relatives with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in our extended family. I know the fear and suffering associated with this disease.

Accordingly, I’m glad to see there is a new website called www.allaboutms.com designed to let people know more about MS and to direct folks to services and products developed to assist those in need of MS treatment.

As you may know, MS is a disease that attacks the myelin in our bodies, the material that insulates the nervous system, much like the covering of an electrical wire, allowing the nerves to transmit impulses at great speed. With myelin, our bodies are capable of rapid, smooth and coordinated movements. Without myelin, however, it is more difficult to perform these ordinary movements.

The www.allaboutms.com website includes fascinating, specialized information for people impacted by MS and tips regarding new ideas for dealing with MS related heat intolerance and the possibilities of a Multiple Sclerosis Diet. All in all, I’…
