Ahead of attending his daily presidential briefing, President Obama delivers remarks at 9:30 a.m. on the budget blueprint he will submit to Congress today. He then attends his daily presidential briefing at 10:30 a.m. and meets with his senior advisers at 11:30 a.m.

At 2 p.m. he meets the congressional Black Caucus at the White House. The meeting is closed press, as are his followings meetings -- one at 3 p.m. with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and another at 3:45 p.m. with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Shortly before 5:00 p.m., Obama greets members of the Chicago Bulls in the Blue Room of the White House.

For the record, I am a conservative and I was against the first bank bailout bill as well. Too bad we will never know if McCain would have won had he put down his foot then.

Indeed, it's *only* when they lose elections that conservatives seem to notice wasteful spending.

We (not including scrivener50) understand that conservatives lost the election. That doesn't stop us from pointing out wasteful spending.

URGENT TO: PRES. OBAMA, VP BIDEN (c/o David Axelrod, Jay Carney)

RE: Ongoing BUSH-CHENEY JUSTICE DEPARTMENT APPROVAL OF RADIATION WEAPONRY USE (read: TORTURE)...

...on "TARGETED" U.S. CITIZENS -- including those deemed "UNDESIRABLES" and POLITICAL "DISSIDENTS"...

... and associated "PROGRAMS OF PERSONAL FINANCIAL DESTRUCTION"

***

Silent, injury- and illness-inducing, potentially lethal radiation weaponry and devices ("Directed Energy Weapons") are being used by security/intel/law enforcement operatives...

...via their nationwide vigilante "Extrajudicial Punishment Network"...

...to inflict pain upon, and to degrade the health of, innocent but "targeted" U.S. citizens in communities across America...

...with the apparent knowledge of local law enforcement -- whose officers believe they are "covered" by supervising federal agents.

These covert assaults are facilitated by "organized community gang stalking" units whose citizen vigilantes are recruited from the ranks of federally-funded volunteer organizations; local public safety departments; community policing groups; public safety retirees and government/municipal employees; and their families. These gang stalkers make surreptitious entries of private homes, and commit various acts of vandalism and physical and psychological harassment.

It appears that this system of extrajudicial targeting and punishment, justified as "intelligence-based policing," is directed by federal and local officials representing multiple agencies.

WHEN WILL BARACK OBAMA AND ERIC HOLDER RESTORE THE RULE OF LAW IN BUCKS COUNTY, PA, PHILA., NYC, D.C. AND ALL ACROSS AMERICA?

President Obama must issue an IMMEDIATE series of executive orders banning the Bush-Cheney "extrajudicial punishment vigilante network"...

...and its array of coordinated government "programs of personal financial destruction" -- one of the root causes of the global economic crisis that began with a meltdown of the home mortgage market.

THIS IS AN AMERICAN SOCIAL GENOCIDE.

Sen. Leahy's "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" is needed.

But first, President Obama, Vice President Biden and Atty. Gen. Holder, you must act to end these crimes against humanity and unconstitutional abuses of power. And bring to justice all of those who are responsible for this national disgrace.

IT IS DAY 38 OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

DO YOU R*E*A*L*L*Y KNOW WHAT YOUR SECURITY MULTI-AGENCY COORDINATION NETWORK IS UP TO?

You have to look at this as a compromise budget from Obama. Steep cuts combined with new taxes and a pathway to universal health care.

Conservatives must understand that they LOST the election. This is the best they can expect for awhile.

During the worst economy ever, the Feds should spend another $10,000 per American?!
