Israeli Soldiers Attacked By Pro-Gaza Demonstrators With Live Fire, Knives and Clubs


Early this morning, IDF Naval Forces boarded six ships attempting to break the maritime closure of the Gaza Strip. This happened after numerous warnings from Israel and the Israeli Navy that were issued prior to the action. The Israel Navy requested the ships to redirect toward Ashdod where they would be able to unload their aid supplies which would then be transferred over land after undergoing security inspections.

During the boarding of the ships, the demonstrators onboard attacked the IDF Naval personnel with live fire and light weaponry including knives and clubs. Additionally one of the weapons used was grabbed from an IDF soldier. The demonstrators had clearly prepared their weapons in advance for this specific purpose.

As a result of this life-threatening and violent activity, naval forces employed riot dispersal means, as well as live fire.

According to initial reports, these events resulted in the deaths of nine demonstrators and seven naval personnel were injured, some from gunfire and some from various other weapons. Two of the soldiers are moderately wounded and the remainder sustained light injuries. All of the injured, Israelis and foreigners have been evacuated by helicopter to hospitals in Israel.
Reports from IDF forces on the scene are that it seems as if part of the participants onboard the ships were planning to lynch the forces.

The interception of the flotilla followed numerous warnings given to the organizers of the flotilla before leaving their ports as well as while sailing towards the Gaza Strip. In these warnings, it was made clear to the organizers that they could dock in the Ashdod sea port and unload the equipment they are carrying in order to deliver it to the Gaza Strip in an orderly manner, following the appropriate security checks. Upon expressing their unwillingness to cooperate and arrive at the port, it was decided to board the ships and lead them to Ashdod.

IDF naval personnel encountered severe violence, including use of weaponry prepared in advance in order to attack and to harm them. The forces operated in adherence with operational commands and took all necessary actions in order to avoid violence, but to no avail.

Israeli PM Netanyahu Cancels White House Visit; Will Return Home


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will cancel his visit to the White House and return home tomorrow.
YNet News reported, via Free Republic:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to cut short his visit in Canada and move up his return to Israel, the Prime Minister’s Office informed Monday. This, following the violent clash during the IDF’s takeover of the Gaza aid flotilla on Sunday night.

It was further stated that Netanyahu will hold a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper which was scheduled in advance within the next hour.

Netanyahu expressed full backing of the IDF today.


Wild Thing's comment........

BiBi handles a crises the way obamination can only dream of.

Good for Bibi! and Good for the IDF! Good for the Israelis for not backing down.

AP is all over this story and only telling about half of it. Their template is that the Israelis “stormed” the lead ship and randomly opened fire.

Nevermind the fact that IDF soldiers had to be life-flighted to a hospital and specifically omited was the video they show does not show the naval officer telling the “floatilla” they were given safe passage to the open port to unload and verify their cargo.

The response from the lead ship was negative, negative, we will only go to Gaza.

Obama supports lawlessness. He is right at the head of the line. Palestinian teachers and school children were dancing in the streets, when they learned that twin towers were bombed with airplanes in New York City, and nearly 3,000 people were killed. Obama is really a low life. How could Americans be such fools??!!!!

A Tribute To The Sacrifices of Those Who Served and Fought For Our Freedom!!

A tribute to the sacrifices of the American Soldier: Shake the hand of a soldier... Another production from a member of the angry mob....wonderful Joe Dan. ~ Wild Thing


From the Fields of Normandy I bring back many memories. Beneath them. I leave many friends,

For they are;

Les Fleurs de Normandie. (The Flowers of Normandy)

Les Fleurs de Normandie.

On Norman soil, they fought and died.
Now young men's graves in rows abound.
In Mother Earth's arms, now sanctified,
The fragrant flowers of our youth are found.

And yet, to rise again, as in a distant song.
Small voices that call, in dead of night.
Fleeting figures only in our dreams belong.
Alas, they fade, in dawn's bright light.

I see them yet, a sad, forgotten throng.
Shadowed, lost faces, marching on.
Over dusty roads, and high golden corn.
The call of long lost friends are borne.

We must not forget, the flowers of our days,
Lest they lay unquiet, in numbered graves.
For we lived, and loved, and life was sweet.
Still yet, for us, awaits our last retreat.

Flowers of our youth, now long since past.
Our sweet autumn days are fading fast.
We, who are left, flowered in our prime.
Enjoyed golden moments, on borrowed time.

Remember our friends, who passed this way.
For all our tomorrow's, they gave their today's,
On Utah and Omaha, Juno, Sword and Gold.
Oh! Dear Lord! See that they grow not old.

Meaning of a Flag Draped Coffin

All Americans should be given this lesson. Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used GOD's word and teachings to establish our Great Nation and I think it's high time Americans get re-educated about this Nation's history. Pass it along and be proud of the country we live in and even more proud of those who serve to protect our "GOD GIVEN" rights and freedoms.

I hope you take the time to read this..... To understand what the flag draped coffin really means..... Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?

Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life.

The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life.

The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.

The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.

The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, "Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong."

The 6th fold is for where people's hearts lie. It is with their heart that They pledge allegiance to the flag of the United! States Of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of their republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.

The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.

The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding them of their nations motto, "In God We Trust."

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning.

Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of "Liberty and Freedom."

Special Volunteers At Arlington

Margaret Mensch attends a burial at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va., on April 22. Mensch is an "Arlington lady" — one of the volunteers who attend funerals there.

Team of women escort the fallen to their graves

Volunteers honor troops and make sure none is buried alone

Stars and Stripes


Joyce Johnson remembers the drums beating slowly as she walked with her girls from the Old Post Chapel, behind the horse-drawn caisson carrying the flag-draped casket of her husband.

She remembers struggling to maintain her composure as she stared at his freshly dug grave, trying not to dwell on the terrible sight in the distance — the gaping hole in the Pentagon where he had so proudly worked.

The three-volley salute. Taps. The chaplain handing her a perfectly folded flag. The blur of tributes.

And then a lady stepped forward, a stranger, dressed not in uniform but in a simple dark suit. She whispered a few words and pressed two cards into Johnson's hands.

"If there is anything you need ..."

Then she melted back into the crowd.

Later Johnson would think of her as a touchingly, human presence in a sea of starched uniforms and salutes. She would learn that the stranger was an "Arlington lady" — one of a small band of volunteers, mainly spouses of retired military officers, who attend every funeral in Arlington National Cemetery. She would read the notes — a formal one from the Army Chief of Staff and his wife, and a personal handwritten one from the Arlington lady herself.

She would learn of their mission: to ensure no soldier is buried alone.

Johnson wasn't alone. In fact she felt as though an entire nation was grieving with her.

But she never forgot the kindness of her Arlington Lady.

And several years later, as she wrestled with how to best to honor her husband, she dug out the lady's card. This is something I can do, she thought, not just for him, but for every soldier.

"It doesn't matter whether we are burying a four-star general or a private," says Margaret Mensch, head of the Army ladies. "They all deserve to have someone say thank you at their grave."

Mensch is sitting at her desk in the basement of the cemetery's administration building in the cramped office shared by ladies from the Navy, Air Force, Army and Coast Guard. The place bustles with activity — young military escorts in dress uniform arriving to accompany ladies to funerals, chaplains scribbling eulogies in their tiny office across the hall, cemetery representatives ushering mourners into private rooms upstairs.

30 funerals each weekday

There are approximately 30 funerals in Arlington every weekday and the ladies attend every one. All have their own reasons and stories.

There is Mensch, married to a retired Army colonel, who oversees the mammoth task of organizing the schedules for her 66 Army ladies and who says attending the funerals is the greatest honor of her life. And Doreen Huylebroeck, a 63-year-old nurse who remembers how desperately she wanted an Arlington lady beside her when her own husband, a retired Navy officer, died three years ago. Janine Moghaddam, who at 41 is one of the youngest Arlington ladies, and who felt a desperate need serve her country in some small way after Sept. 11, 2001. And Johnson herself.

She treks to the cemetery in spring when cherry blossoms burst over the rows of white stones and everything seems dusted in yellow pollen. And in the swelter of summer when the stones blaze in the heat and mourners sometimes pass out at services. Even in winter, when the wind whips through the marble pillars of the Columbarium, Johnson and the other ladies keep their vigil, clinging to the arms of their escorts as they pick their way through the mud and snow.

Always elegantly dressed, often in hats and gloves. Always standing, hand over heart, a respectful distance from the grave. Always mindful of history.

The ladies know every inch of Arlington's 624 manicured acres, from the stones of freed slaves marked "unknown citizens" to the grave of the first soldier interred here (Private William Christman, a farmer from Pennsylvania who fought in the Civil War) to Section 60, where the men and women who lost their lives in the current wars are buried.

"So many stones, so many stories," says Paula Mckinley, head of the Navy ladies, as she drives through the cemetery one recent spring day, stopping at a section not far from the throngs of tourists at President John F. Kennedy's grave.

Baldwin. Curtis. Sanchez. She walks among their headstones reciting their names.

With her booming voice, red hair tucked under a straw hat, and brisk manner, Mckinley, whose husband is a retired Navy officer, is a striking figure. But she is subdued by the graves, reverential. "They all deserve to be remembered, and to be visited," she says.

McKinley, who has been an Arlington lady for 21 years, drives a little further. She stops by a grove of willow oaks, searching for a specific plot.

"Here you are, sweetheart," she says, gently touching the stone of a young woman Navy officer who died in an accident at the age of 25. The officer's mother called from California one day — on her daughter's birthday — and asked if an Arlington lady could put flowers on the grave. Now McKinley visits regularly. She says it's the least she can do.

Job to honor, not grieve

The first group of Arlington ladies were formed in 1948 after Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg and his wife, Gladys, noticed an airman being buried without any family members present, just a chaplain and honor guard. It seemed so sad, and somehow so wrong. So Gladys Vandenberg enlisted a group of officers' wives to attend all Air Force funerals. The other branches of the armed services followed, with the exception of the Marines, who do not have a group.

The ladies insist they are not mourners. They come to honor, not to grieve. "An Arlington lady doesn't cry," is practically a mantra.

And yet, there are times when that is inevitable.

McKinley remembers choking up as she offered condolences to a 10-year-old girl, who had just lost her parents. The child reached up and hugged her tight. And the time a young widow from Peru clung to her, begging McKinley to sit next to her in the front row. Her husband had died suddenly and there were no family members to comfort her.

Linda Willey, head of the Air Force ladies, describes the pain of burying friends from the Pentagon after September 11, 2001, when shards of debris still littered the cemetery and tears flowed freely behind dark glasses.

And Mensch tells of the heartache the Army ladies felt last year when one of their own escorts was killed in Iraq. The handsome young soldier from the 3rd Infantry Division, who had escorted the ladies to hundreds of funerals, was buried with full military honors, an Arlington lady standing by his grave.

About 145 ladies volunteer in the four branches, which all have slightly different rules. The Army ladies maintain a strict dress code — no slacks, no red, panty hose to be worn at all times. The Navy ladies introduce themselves to the families before the funeral, and follow up with personal notes about six weeks later.

All of the ladies volunteer for one day a month, sometimes attending four or five funerals in a single day. All have memories and stories: the time a family feud erupted and police had to break up the mourners; the young widow who wore a red cocktail dress because it was her husband's favorite; the older widow who refused to get out of the car because she saw the Arlington lady standing near the grave. She assumed this was the other woman.

"You never know what to expect, and you never judge," Willey says as she walks among the headstones and ponders her role. Willey, 63, who is married to a retired Air Force colonel, became a lady almost by accident, as a favor to a friend who kept pressing her. From her first funeral she knew that this was what she was meant to do.
"It just felt right, such an honor," Willey says. "It's such a simple gesture and yet it can be so powerful."

'Angelic' presence

As she talks, strains of "America the Beautiful" seem to float over the stones from a grave site a short distance away. Jan Jackson of Fort Collins, Colo., is burying her parents. Their urns sit next to each other on a table above their joint grave.

Jackson's mother died in 2006 and her father, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel, died last year. She had planned this springtime date on what would have been her father's 96th birthday. She wanted to honor her parents, married 67 years, by burying them together in the nation's hallowed ground.

As a member of a military family, Jackson, 59, is familiar with the pomp and precision and patriotism that accompany funerals. But she was utterly unprepared for the flood of emotion that swept over her as a young military escort took her arm and guided her from the chapel to the grave.

It was a small funeral — just Jackson, her son and grandchildren. And her Arlington lady.

Everything about the service was perfect, she said later. And this stranger was there to make it even better — "almost an angelic kind of person who is there for you even though she doesn't know you, even though she is not required, even though it is not her job. It was so special, so comforting."

From around the cemetery drift the sounds of other services, bands and gun salutes and drum rolls, one funeral seeming to blend into the next.

In one section, three daughters in black dresses and pearls, are burying their father, a former Navy officer who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and who meticulously planned his own funeral, even visiting Arlington regularly to view his final resting place. He smiles from a photograph propped next to his urn.

In the Columbarium, decorated veterans, laden with medals, are saluting one of their own — a member of the naval aviation squadron known as the Golden Eagles, and one of the last survivors of the Battle of Midway.

And in Section 60 a widow, young and beautiful and dressed in black, clutches her toddler son. Before her, standing to attention, the honor guard that had processed behind her husband's coffin, pulled in a caisson by six white horses. In the distance, the rifle guard that had fired the salute. In a far corner, the lone bugler who had played taps.

On this steamy spring day, beneath a towering oak, a 27-year-old Army sergeant, killed in an attack in Pakistan a month earlier, is about to be laid to rest.

"Today the country tries to say thank you ... and yet words are inadequate," the chaplain begins.

His widow seems overwhelmed, her eyes locked on the silver casket that holds his remains. His parents softly sob.

And then a lady steps forward, an older woman, dressed in a simple dark suit.

She whispers a few words of condolences and presses two cards into the widow's hands.

"If there is anything you need ..."

National Moment of Remembrance

Moment Of Remembrance

In 1996, a humanitarian organization based in Washington, D.C., known as 'No Greater Love' conducted a survey on children and asked them why do they think there is a holiday on Memorial Day. It was agonizing to hear their remarks that were all associated with barbecues and extended weekend parties and celebration, while they hadn't the vaguest idea about the sacrifices of the soldiers in whose honor it is celebrated. One of the children was even quoted as saying that this was the day when swimming pools open!


Thus, the organization came up with the idea of 'National Moment of Remembrance' to remind and especially, let the future generations know about the real meaning of the holiday.

The idea clicked with the President and Congress and since 1997, it became a standard American tradition. National Moment of Remembrance requires everybody to keep silent for a minute, exactly at 3.00 pm (local time) when 'Taps' is played and reflect on the glory of those who have shed blood for us. The federal government hopes to raise public awareness about the heroes and their valor by introducing this moment.

Wherever a person is at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity (duration: one minute).The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday.

The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died for our freedom.

Gene Simmons From KISS-A Patriotic Salute to the Military

Gene Simmons From KISS-A Patriotic Salute to the Military

"It's about America, it's about God and Country!" ~ Gene Simmons

GENE SIMMONS: It is embarrassing what’s happening to America nowadays. I’m embarrassed. The same thing happened in Vietnam, and I lived through that era. It was unbelievable. The answer seems to be, from some political experts, just get up and leave and the bad guys will decide, “Hey let’s disarm and everything’s going to be okay.” I’m so fucking sick and tired of such idiotic behavior.
It’s not the policies and the bills; it’s how we treat our military. It’s how we treat our young men or women who go out there, at 18 years old, and risk their lives. There’s no fame, they’re certainly not getting rich, and a lot of them are dying, simply for something they believe.

Johnny Clem "Drummer Boy of Chickamauga."

Johnny Clem statue located in Veterans Park Newark, Ohio


John Lincoln "Johnny" Clem


Born in Newark, Ohio, 13 Aug. 1851, Clem ran away from home in May 1861 to join the army and found the army was not interested in 9-year-old boys. When he applied to the commander of the 3d Ohio Regiment, the officer said he "wasn't enlisting infants," and turned him down. Clem tried the 22d Michigan next, and its commander said roughly the same. Determined, Clem tagged after the regiment, acted "just the same as a drummer boy," and wore down resistance. Though still not regularly enrolled, he performed camp duties and received a soldier's pay, $13 a month, a sum donated by the officers.

The next April, at Shiloh, Clem's drum was smashed by an artillery round and he became a minor news item as "Johnny Shiloh," the smallest drummer. More than a year later, at the Battle Of Chickamauga, he rode an artillery caisson to the front and wielded a musket trimmed to his size. In one of the Union retreats a Confederate officer ran after the cannon Clem rode with, and before the drummer killed him, said, "Surrender you damned little Yankee!" This pluck won for Clem national attention and the name "Drummer Boy of Chickamauga."

Clem stayed with the army through the war, served as a courier, and was wounded twice. Between Shiloh and Chickamauga he was regularly enrolled in the service and thereafter received his own pay. After the Civil War he tried to enter West Point but was turned down because of his slim education. A personal appeal to Pres. U.S. GRANT, his general at Shiloh, won him a 2d lieutenant's appointment in the Regular army 18 Dec. 1 871, and in 1903 he became colonel and assistant quartermaster general. He retired from the army as a major general in 1916. d. San Antonio, Tex., 13 May 1937.

Marines Honor Fallen Brothers in Afghanistan

On this Memorial Day, we give a special time to remember and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We do this each day and will never forget but today is special as we are joined by millions of others. In the accompanying story, see how Marines in Afghanistan are remembering and honoring their fallen brothers . ~ Wild Thing

Marines Honor Fallen Brothers in Afghanistan

A portrait of Lance Cpl. Timothy J. Poole is displayed at the entrance to Patrol Base Poole, named in his honor.

Story by Sgt. Brian Tuthill
NAWA, Helmand Province, Afghanistan - Since their deployment to Afghanistan began in November 2009, the Marines of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment have conducted counterinsurgency operations from dozens of positions throughout th Nawa District.

They have lived at these small camps and traveled on roads named by their predecessors, the Marines of 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, after their push into the area during Operation Khanjar last summer.

As new positions were erected and new roads established over the past few months, the Marines of 1/3 took the opportunity to name these locations for their five brothers killed during the deployment.

Those five Marines are the honored namesakes of Range Juarez, Patrol Base Swenson, Patrol Base Meinert, Route Pier and Patrol Base Poole.

Marines of Charlie Company, 1/3, also named Combat Outpost Reilly near Marjah during Operation Moshtarak in February, before another battalion took over that area. That base is named for Lance Cpl. Thomas J. Reilly, Jr., the only Marine from 1/3 killed in action during the battalion's previous deployment to Karmah, Iraq.

On May 14, 2010, Marines of Headquarters and Service Company, 1/3, delivered a concrete security barrier to a small-arms rifle range just outside of Forward Operating Base Geronimo. One side is painted red with yellow letters, boldly identifying Range Juarez. Cpl. Mark D. Juarez, who served with 1/3 as an armorer, was the first Marine killed during the deployment in January. Although the range has been in use since last year, Marines said it was fitting that it was renamed for a Marine whose specialty was repairing weapons.

Patrol Base Swenson is named for Lance Cpl. Curtis M. Swenson, a Marine from Weapons Company, who was killed in April. Patrol Base Swenson has been designated as a northern hub for Afghan national army and police forces in Nawa. A new batch of ANP recruits are expected to arrive there in a few weeks after their training.

In the northern area of 1/3's area of responsibility is Patrol Base Meinert, named for Lance Cpl. Jacob A. "Slim" Meinert, a fire team leader with Bravo Company killed in January. The post was erected, April 15, and opened by Meinert's squad.

That same squad lost another Marine not long after Meinert was killed, Lance Cpl. Noah M. Pier, and they recently established a new gravel-paved road near OP Meinert and named it Route Pier. The new road allows Marines, Afghan national security forces and local citizens to travel the area more easily.

Large photos of Meinert and Pier are displayed at the entrance to OP Meinert as a memorial to the two Marines.

"I think naming these bases is great way for us to honor our fallen brothers," said Sgt. Steven J. Habon, who was Pier and Meinert's squad leader, with 1st Squad, 3rd Platoon, Bravo Company, 1/3. "It really improves morale and makes us proud to serve at a place named for one of our guys."

"Naming these bases lets people know what we left behind here in Afghanistan. These Marines will be remembered," said Habon, 25, from San Jose, Calif. "It's a way for future Marines to know about those who were there before."

In March, Patrol Base Poole was opened in Bravo Company's kinetic western area, and Marines in that area have frequently been engaged in firefights with insurgents. Lance Cpl. Timothy J. Poole, a Bravo Company Marine from 2nd Platoon, was killed in January and Marines from his platoon have held that position since it was established. His photo is also dominantly displayed at the entrance to that patrol base.

"It's good to see his photo up there. Sometimes when I walk by it, I'll stop and say ''what's up?' and offer him a cigarette." said Lance Cpl. Nathan W. Klopp, a fire team leader from Poole's squad and one of his close friends who currently operates from PB Poole.

"I'm proud to be here, we just got into a firefight a couple of days ago, actually," said Klopp, 21, from Vancouver, Washington. "Our platoon and our squad have been in a lot of firefights. We're out here bringing the fight to the enemy. After having one of our Marines killed, it's good to be able to come out here and serve for him and carry on with the mission like he'd want us to do."

Many Marines serving at these positions echoed Klopp's sentiments, said they and their Marines are all proud to serve at a place named for a fallen friend, and hope when the next battalion comes to Nawa that they, too, will continue to honor those who did not return home.

Lance Cpl. Jeffrey P. Grivois, a fire team leader with 3rd Platoon, Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, wears a metal bracelet to honor his friend, Lance Cpl. Noah M. Pier, who was killed in action in January and has a road in Nawa named in his honor. Grivois is currently serving at Patrol Base Meinert, named for another fallen Marine from Bravo Company, and both Meinert and Pier's photos are displayed at the post's entrance. Grivois, 21, is from Ocala, Florida.


Portraits of Lance Cpl. Jacob A. "Slim" Meinert and Lance Cpl. Noah M. Pier are displayed at the entrance to Patrol Base Meinert. The two Marines, who were in the same squad, were killed only weeks apart. A nearby road was recently named Route Pier.


Cpl. Kyle P. McDermott, an armorer with Headquarters and Service Company, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, who served with Cpl. Mark Juarez, stands beside the new marker for Range Juarez. McDermott, 22, is from Loan Oak, Texas.

Words from Ronald Reagan on Memorial Day

President Ronald Reagan's June 6, 1984 speech in front of the U.S. Ranger Monument in Normandy commemorating the Rangers' charge up Pointe du Hoc:

"Forty summers have passed since the battle that you fought here. You were young the day you took these cliffs; some of you were hardly more than boys, with the deepest joys of life before you. Yet, you risked everything here. Why? Why did you do it? What impelled you to put aside the instinct for self-preservation and risk your lives to take these cliffs? What inspired all the men of the armies that met here? We look at you, and somehow we know the answer. It was faith and belief. It was loyalty and love.

"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or on the next. It was the deep knowledge-and pray to God we have not lost it-that there is a profound, moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest. You were here to liberate, not to conquer, and so you and those others did not doubt your cause. And you were right not to doubt.

"You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One's country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty."

Rolling Thunder 2010 Memorial Weekend and Enemy Within Obama Will Not Be There ~ GOOD!

The roar of hundreds of thousands of motorcycles will fill the streets of our nation’s capital this weekend in tribute to military members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to our country as prisoners of war (POW) or who have been reported missing in action (MIA) as Rolling Thunder 2010 gets underway in Washington, D.C.

Started in 1987 by four Vietnam Veterans as “a demonstration to bring awareness to the plight of POWs and soldiers who are MIA,” the event has grown from its humble beginnings into a monumental patriotic tribute to soldiers and veterans from all wars that is appropriately held over Memorial Day weekend.

Rolling Thunder First Amendment Demonstration Run Washington, DC. This annual run to bring awareness to the POW/MIA full accountability issue will take place on May 30th this year.

The idea for Rolling Thunder was the brainstorm of Ray Manzo, Corporal USMC, who wanted to “host a motorcycle run in the nation's capital to show the country and the world that abandoned American soldiers in Vietnam still mattered to their fellow servicemen and the country for which they sacrificed their freedom.” Fellow veterans embraced his idea and helped turn the dream into reality, including retired Army Sergeant Major John Holland, head of the American Foundation for Accountability of POW/MIAs, Ted Sampley with Homecoming II Project at the Last Firebase vigil, retired Marine 1st Sergeant Walt Sides, president of the non-profit Warriors Inc,, and Bob Schmitt who had a POW family member. It is said that when Manzo discussed his idea of forming a motorcycle run to the group, Schmitt was staring in the direction of the Memorial Bridge while listening to Manzo's idea and blurted out, "It will be the sound of rolling thunder coming across that bridge.” The name has stuck since.

The first Rolling Thunder was an exercise of the First Amendment "Right to Petition and Assemble" and consisted of approximately 2500 motorcycles who rode through the streets of Washington, D.C. “in an attempt to petition the government to take responsibility for the soldiers that were abandoned after the Vietnam War ended.” The ride has since grown to mammoth proportions, as hundreds of thousands yearly make the trek to D.C. to honor our servicemen and women and POWs and MIAs from all wars.

Obama Snubs Vietnam Vets of Rolling Thunder

Maybe he doesn't like the sound of hundreds of thousands of motorcycle riding freedom-fighters roaring through the streets of D.C. all day and night for four days?

Barack Obama is turning his back on the Vietnam veterans of Rolling Thunder who will gathering in Washington, D.C. this Memorial Day weekend for their 23rd annual demonstration to remind the nation of those servicemembers still missing or held as prisoners of war.

In addition to skipping out on his duties at Arlington National Cemetery so he can vacation at the family mansion in Chicago, Obama will be cancelling what, under President George W. Bush, had become a traditional meeting at the White House between Rolling Thunder and the administration.

Last year, after initially rebuffing the veterans group, the Obama administration invited Rolling Thunder at the last minute for a low-key meeting that Obama dropped in on.

Even though Obama toyed with them, Rolling Thunder released a gracious statement praising Obama and his wife for their attention given to veterans and military families.

This year, according to Jennifer Harper's Inside the Beltway column at the Washington Times, the Obama White House has frozen out Rolling Thunder completely. No meeting with staffers, no sit down with Vice President Joe Biden who is remaining in Washington, no nothing.

I wonder if Obama will pal around this weekend with his Chicago neighbor and friend Bill Ayers, the terrorist whose group, the Weather Underground, plotted to murder soldiers at Fort Dix with a massive nail bomb during the Vietnam War.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama is a classless, arrogant,Marxist Muslim homosexual poser who deserves impeachment and a trial for treason.

Yes I know the good news is he won't be there, I agree with that too. I was torn when I first heard about his snub to Arlington, because I want the Office of the President to be there.

But thinking more about it, it would be a travesty for Obama to come anywhere near Arlington, or to attend Rolling Thunder. He is the enemy within, period! He is a communist fascist and our Memorials are to those who fought and died fighting communism and fascism.

UPDATE: Also I saw online at Rolling Thunder they have a press release that says :

Gen. Richard B. Myers, USAF (Ret.) will be the keynote speaker on May 30 ( hmmmm going against Obama's wishes apparently )

So far the speakers are:

Other speakers for the Sunday program include:

• Rolling Thunder Executive Director Sgt. Artie Muller

• Former Green Beret, Operation Enduring Freedom veteran and U.S. Senate candidate from Arkansas Trevor Drown

• Veterans’ activist and long-time Rolling Thunder supporter Nikki Mendocino

• Dolores Alfond, national chairperson, National Alliance of Families of POWs/MIAs

• Johnie E. Webb, deputy to the commander for public relations and legislative affairs, Joint Prisoners of War, Missing in Action Accounting Command (JPAC)

Trevor Drown is a friend of mine and is there this weekend and has been doing updates at his Facebook page. You might like to friend him there as well. Trevoe served as a Green Beret in Afghanistan. While in the Special Forces he saw firsthand what happens in countries without democracy.

Canisius College - WWII Display - The Niland Boys

Canisius College - WWII Display - The Niland Boys

The History

One of the most poignant stories of Canisius' involvement in World War II is that of the Niland family. Edward, Preston, Robert, and Frederick were the sons of Michael and Augusta Niland. The four brothers, who lived in Tonawanda, NY, a town north of Buffalo, all went to Canisius College except for Preston who attended the University of Buffalo. Thomas and Joseph Niland, their cousins, also attended Canisius. Thomas was in the same grade as Frederick while Joseph was a year ahead.

Before the United States entered the war in Europe, Preston and Robert enlisted in the service. Edward and Fredrick (also known as "Fritz") followed after volunteering in November 1942. Because of the famous 1942 Sullivan case in which five brothers had been killed when their ship was sunk, the new army rule mandated that immediate family members could not serve together. As a result, each brother served in a different unit: Technical Sergeant Edward Niland as a pilot in the Army Air Force, Technical Sergeant Robert Niland with the 82nd Airborne Division (505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Company D), Lieutenant Preston Niland with the 4th Infantry Division (22nd Infantry Regiment), and Sergeant Frederick Niland as a member of the 101st Airborne's 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment. The brothers' cousins also joined - Thomas Niland also served in the 101st Airborne Division but in a different unit than Fritz while Joseph Niland was in the 20th armored tank division.

Tragedy Strikes

On May 16, 1944, Michael and Augusta received the first bad news that their son Edward, 31 at the time, had been shot down over Burma and was missing. Soon afterwards on June 6, 1944, the Allied forces began their costly invasion of Nazis-controlled Europe. Preston, 29, Robert, 25, Fritz, 24, and Thomas Niland, 24, all took part in the first waves of the invasion. Robert was killed on D-day while manning his machine-gun post in Neuville, a city not far from the beaches. Preston was killed the next day near Omaha Beach. Fritz, meanwhile, had been dropped between Omaha and Utah beaches while Thomas was involved in a glider unit that landed in France. Joseph, 25, was not involved with the invasion.

When the Army heard of the tragic story, they determined that the Nilands would not suffer the death of their last child. Fr. Francis Sampson, the chaplain of the 501st Regiment, found Fritz and began the paperwork necessary for his return home. Fritz stayed with his men a few more days until he was shipped back to England and, finally, to the U.S. where he served as an MP in New York until the completion of the war.

From August 1942 to April 1946, Fr. Murray, a philosophy professor, compiled a scrapbook of local newspaper articles that mentioned any of Canisius's "boys at arms." Listed here are the articles directly related to the story of the Niland family.


"3d Son Missing Parents Learn; All Since D-Day" (pdf.) (B.N. 7-8-44)*

"One of 3 Missing Brothers Killed" (pdf.) (B. N. 7-31-44)

"Tonawandans Lose Second Son in France" (pdf.) (C.E. 8-5-44)**

"Tonawanda Flier Freed from Japs" (pdf.) (C.E.5-5-45)

"400 Prisoners in Crossfire Aided by Native: Tonawanda Lad Freed by British in Burma" (pdf.) (C.E. 8-5-45)

"Athlete Cited for Gallantry on Battlefield" (pdf.) (C.E.12-12-45)

The Follow Up

Robert and Preston Niland were buried at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France.

After more than a year of presuming the death of their son Edward, the Nilands happily learned that he was still alive in a Burmese POW camp. Edward had parachuted from his plane and wandered the jungles before being captured. The POW camp had taken a severe physical toll on Edward who weighed only 80 pounds (from his original 170) when he returned to the U.S. Edward lived in Tonawanda until his death in 1984 at the age of 72.

Fritz Niland went on to earn a degree in dentistry at Georgetown University and worked for a year at a government dental program on Guam. Afterwards, he returned to Tonawanda and set up his own dental practice in Niagara Falls. Fritz was awarded a Bronze Star for his service. He died in 1983 in San Francisco at the age of 63.

Like Fritz, Tom Niland also went back to school and completed his degree at Canisius in 1947. Tom then served as Le Moyne College's first basketball coach and athletic director until his retirement in 1990. He was awarded a Silver Star for his actions in the Battle of the Bulge at Bastogne. He died March 16, 2004 at the age of 83.

Joseph Niland's tank division became known as the Liberators after freeing the Dachau concentration camp. He eventually returned to Tonawanda where he finished his degree at Canisius in 1946 and continued pursuing his love of sports as a well known and respected coach of the Canisius basketball team. Niland posted the second-highest winning percentage in school history. After his years at Canisius, Joseph Niland also served as a basketball coach at local high schools and as a scout for such teams as baseball's Cincinnati Reds and basketball's Buffalo Braves. He was also an aide for the general manager of the Buffalo Bills.

The story of the Niland family still inspires and even influenced the writing of Stephen Spielberg's 1998 movie "Saving Private Ryan." Although a unique story in its tragedy, the Niland family was only one of many families in which several children simultaneously served for their country. Listed here are several articles pulled from Canisius's WWII Scrapbook that recount other local Canisius families and their stories.


From Mark :

I just got a Copy of our little towns Historical paper, 'the Lumber shover', we get it every month. All about the history of our little town Tonawanda, N.Y. In this months edition, because its May, and Memorial Day at the end of it, they published a lot of information about the past wars.
Being from a small town you'd think I'd know everything about it, hah, I didn't know this. The Niland Brothers from Tonawanda. There were 4 sons, Robert, Preston, Edward and Frederick. Robert and Preston were killed on Normandy Robert was a pow of the Japanese and Frederick was the subject of the movie, "Saving Pirvate Ryan". The 101st Airborne.
In the 1950's there was a family of Nilands living on Delaware Avenue across from where we use to play ball during the summer. Not sure if its was the same family or not but their kids would play too.
I thought how ironic that this from our little town. I was just in awe.
This is the sacrifice our neighbors and friends have made to keep our country free. How can anyone call this selfish, and think there is a need to apologize for this.
Anyways here's the rest of the story.
I guess we got more than snow to brag about.


Wild Thing's comment........

What awesome people have served our country and the stories that we learn about them should be told often and to as many as possible. Too often those on the left would rather thank a politican or a teacher when it is ONLY our Veterans and those serving now and those that gave their all.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO............ LOL so Chris is going off on Obama.

Pardon our Sudanese but, “No shit, Sherlock. Where’d you get your first clue?”

The amazing thing is that it’s taken 16 months and numerous unresolved crises for MSNBC host and presidential sycophant Chris Matthews to get over the thrill that goes up his leg whenever he hears Obama speak.

Louisiana Official to Obama: Stop moratorium on drilling

Parish official to Obama: Stop moratorium on drilling


A Louisiana official pleaded with far left President Obama to lift his moratorium on new oil drilling and exploration. With the unemployment rate at 9.9% President Obama set up the moratorium after the BP oil spill in the Gulf.

A Gulf Coast official is pleading with President Barack Obama to scrap the moratorium on new oil drilling and exploration as the investigation of the massive oil spill continues, saying the economic impact to her Louisiana parish would be too much to bear.

Charlotte Randolph, president of LaFourche Parish, said she spoke to Obama in person during his visit to the oil-stricken region Friday.

“I expressed to the president that we are dying because of the oil spill, but if he allows this suspension to happen it will kill us,” she told reporters Saturday, noting that her parish has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
“First I’m hearing from fisherman who are dying because of the oil spill,” she said. “Now I’m hearing from the oil and gas industry and all of those associated services that they will be put out of business.”

Obama’s tour of the oil damage along the Gulf Coast came a day after he announced steps to limit new oil drilling and exploration during the oil spill. The president said he is “fully engaged” and ultimately responsible for what he called a catastrophe.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This is so sad and an outrage that any citizen has to plead with any president to make this country survive and do well. And to drlll when we should be drilling like crazy all over the place.

But asking this communists idiot for anything is a waste of time. To ask this idiot Administration combined with the Communists Party (formally the Democratic Party) is useless since their objective is to reduce Americans to third world status in mud huts.

If drilling on land were allowed, none of this would have happened in the first place.

Obama and his administration are nothing other than one big Death Panel.

More On Obama and His Admin Won't Acknowledge "Terrorism"

They are responding to John Brennan's comment that "Jihad" is a legitimate tenet of Islam, Krauthammer again nails it...

Krauthammer: "Who is describing whom in religious terms? He's describing himself...Our enemy is describing itself in those terms and to deny it, is unbelievable"

Williams: "We don't want to antagonize people that we want to win over and that includes whatever moderate element there is in the Islamic community, we want them in fact to stand taller than they have been in defiance to people who are extremists. So I understand the instinct that says look, these people are Muslim radicals, why don't we just call it for what it is, well if you are politically savvy, you want to make sure that people who are faithful Muslims don't think we are going after them"


And this is Brigitte Gabriel, LISTEN UP Obama you Islam freak!


Wild Thing's comment........

Thank God for Krauthammer and Brigitte Gabriel.

I read one of her books - she and her family spent about seven years hiding out in the remains of their house (basically a crater) after the PLO gained effective control of things in her part of Lebanon.

People have to understand the threat or stop their propaganda like Obama and his administration are doing trying to push Islam on all of us.

Obama to Snatch Up to 75% of Your Income

Obama to snatch up to 75% of your income


If President Obama repeals the Bush tax cuts and imposes a 20 percent value added tax, or VAT, on the U.S., Americans may be facing tax rates where more than half of everything earned is confiscated by the federal government in the form of income taxes, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

Add Social Security taxes and the tax burden quickly advances to more than 60 percent.

"Adding state property and income taxes to the burden, the amount government confiscates could be in the 75 percent range before Americans have a chance to vote Obama out of office in 2012," Corsi wrote. "Are Americans willing to be taxed 75 percent of every dollar earned?"

In a five-day work week, will Americans be willing to work four days for the government?" Corsi asked.

He said as Obama moves the U.S. in the direction of becoming a European-style social welfare state, it is important to consider taxation levels typical in Europe.

Corsi noted that even high levels of taxation are not sufficient in Europe to prevent debt levels from rising to crisis proportions, as has been seen in Greece and is looming on the horizon in Portugal, Spain and Italy.

"These are the real costs of income redistribution, as taxpayers are made to bear the taxation costs of generous pension plans for government employees at all levels of government – federal, state and local – as well as funding Social Security, paying for Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare and funding welfare, including educating the children of illegal immigrants in Spanish in public schools," he wrote. "There is no limit to generosity when it comes to socialist states providing social welfare benefits to increasingly government dependent populations."

Wild Thing's comment.......

A simple and easy to follow guide of our current circumstances:

The Road to Serfdom in Cartoons...

These peple are nuts. If they keep taking more from us, well I guess what they want is for everyone to be broke and then put us all on government help which is a way to rule our lives once more..... obama agenda 101.

Clinton Refuses to Comment on Sestak Offer

The White House memo signed by the husband of Mao fan Anita Dunn - Robert Bauer - identified Bill Clinton as the person who approached Joe Sestak. Inconsistent with Sestak's repeated claims that he was offered a high ranking job in the Obama administration to drop out of the primary race, the memo claims he was offered a non-paying Board position he could serve on while remaining a congressman.

As was the case in Watergate, the cover-up was much worse than the act itself. Enter Bill Clinton. If there is nothing to this and no illegal activity took place, why dodge questions? Here, Clinton not only dodges them but he completely ignores them.

Clinton was asked several times, but ignored the question.


Wild Thing's comment.......

To lie or not to lie....that is the question. Would he stoop to lying? Ask Monica!! Oh and remember.....Clinton: "It depends on what the meaning of meaning is."

LOL I guess Clinton hasn't had time to memorize the script.

Charles Krauthammer's Take On Joe Sestak

Fox All-Stars last night discussing the day’s events related to the offer of a job made to Joe Sestak via Bill Clinton.

Charles Krauthammer absolutely took the White House statement on the matter apart. He said: “I found the statement from the White House just unbelievably lawyerly, and I must say, deceptive.” Krauthammer pointed out that the statement says “efforts” were made in June and July of last year to determine if Sestak would be interested in appointive service. That would seem to mean more than one effort. Who made the other “efforts,” and what did they offer to Sestak? “I’ve never heard of a phone call that lasted for two months,” he said.

Krauthammer said “a crime has been committed” in the Colorado Senate race, as the White House offered a paid job to Democrat candidate Andrew Romanoff to drop his bid against incumbent Democrat Sen. Michael Bennett.

Stephen Hayes said what the White House has said is “implausible.” Hayes does not think it makes any sense that such a paltry position would be offered to coax Sestak to drop a U.S. Senate bid.

As far as whether the story will now die, Hayes thinks it will not, but both Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer think it will after this weekend, with Krauthammer predicting the media will “cover Obama’s backside” on this.

Fox News Anchor Bret Baier ended by saying, “We’ll stay on it here.”


Wild Thing's comment......

It is very curious that's for sure. One thing we all know is that Obama, Rahm, Clinton all are liars.

Good For Rep. Michele Bachmann As She Blasts Democrats for Voting to Allow Another Federal Pay Raise!

Rep. Michele Bachmann blasts Democrats for voting to allow another federal pay raise!

Dems again brush off cuts sought by GOP's online initiative

By Michael O'Brien

The Hill

The House dismissed on Friday a Republican-led effort to freeze wages for non-military federal employees.

The House voted 227-183 to table a motion to recommit a defense authorization bill to kill a 1.4 percent pay raise for civilian federal employees proposed by the Obama administration.

The cuts were picked under the GOP's "YouCut" initiative, and was offered by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). Republicans said the cuts would have saved $30 billion over 10 years.

Three Republicans voted to keep the pay raises in place, while 18 Democrats joined the GOP in calling for the cut.

This vote was the second time Democrats brushed aside a GOP vote forced under the "YouCut" program, where online visitors and other supporters can vote on proposed spending cuts.

Democrats needled the GOP on Friday by submitting an item for next week's vote that would cut the funding for House Republicans' "America Speaking Out" initiative.

Rush: “We Know why Obama and Bill Clinton had Lunch Yesterday, to get Their Stories Straight"

Rush: “We Know why Obama and Bill Clinton had Lunch Yesterday, to get Their Stories Straight”…

speculated that Bill Clinton lunched with Obama at the White House yesterday in order to “get their stories straight” ahead of the White House release their explanation of the Sestak Job Offer.

Transcript Quote from Rush

RUSH: I guess now we know why, ladies and gentlemen, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton had lunch yesterday. They had to get their stories straight. You know who this is, and you know what this is, so let’s go. . . .

Okay, now we know why Clinton and Obama had lunch yesterday. They had to get their stories straight on this Sestak business. It is… (laughing) Folks, this is just too rich. Isn’t it great? Here’s what happened. Apparently Rahm Emanuel went to Clinton and said, “Look, would you go talk to Sestak informally? See if he’s interested in taking a nonpaid — an unpaid job — high position job, unpaid here in the administration.” And Clinton, of course, said (impression), “Hey, Mr. President, whatever you want. You know, I said, ‘You’re going to have to kiss my ass’ back during the campaign if you wanted my support ’cause of the way you called me racist and so forth, the way you portrayed me and Hillary. Now you gotta come kiss my ass. So fine you’re kissing my ass.” I got the story right here. Clinton said that. Sit tight.

“I’m going to kiss your ass, you kiss my ass, and I will make sure that you are all right. You come groveling to me I’ll be happy to help you out here.” Now, look at what’s happened here. They go to Bill Clinton. He’s famous for getting people jobs. Monica Lewinsky offered a job at Revlon. She was offered a job at the United Nations. She didn’t take any of them. But they’ve got Bill Clinton. Isn’t it great, folks, that they’ve found a guy who they know will commit perjury to carry the water here? (chuckling) Snerdley… This is why the staff does not have microphones. People ask, “Why can’t we hear them speak to you?” (chuckling) Anyway, what better choice than Bill Clinton, a man who they know was willing to commit perjury in order to carry the water here .

I went and looked at the law on this.

18 U.S.C. § 211 : US Code - Section 211: Acceptance or Solicitation to Obtain Appointive Public Office -- Whoever solicits or receives, either as a political contribution, or for personal emolument, any money or thing of value, in consideration of the promise of support or use of influence in obtaining for any person any appointive office or place under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both," and it doesn't say here anything about it has to be a paid position. "Whoever solicits..." In this case it would be Rahm Emanuel going through Der Schlick Meister. "Whoever solicits or receives," that would be Sestak -- and then, by the way, Clinton went to Sestak's brother. That's the circuitous route here.


Wild Thing's comment........

Sestak said someone in the Obama white House, not someone in the outhouse, offered him a job to drop out of the primary.

Wild Thing's comment.........

This is an open statement or a rallying cry to all blacks by this organization to prepare for war.

They will probably be planning more voter intimidation programs too.

“With the rise of the Tea Party, the white-right and other racist forces. With gun sales nationwide at an all time high amongst whites, with a mood that is more anti-Black than any time recent, it is imperative that we organize our forces, pool our resources and prepare for war!”

They're planning for a war.

Remember this:....."Security" patrols stationed at polling places in Philly:

They are just following the leader...OBAMA.

Obama mocks and taunts Americans, he incites his followers to be confrontational, and is against all the offive he holds is to represent.

CNN: Democrats Cringed at Obama

Is President Barak Obama becoming more like a millstone around the necks of Democrats?

With what has been going on in Gulf of Mexico’s oil spill disaster, begining with the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig, the decision by the state of Arizona to enforce the southern border via the SB 1070 law on illegal immigration, and threats abroad, but in a special way with what has been going on in the Gulf with the massive oil spill, Democrats are not only are cringing but have pushed the panic button.

From the Situation Room, Dana Bash also says that Democrats walked out one by one when they were asked if the President was doing a good enough job.

"One quick story, our congressional producer Ted Barrett was at a press conference with several Senate Democrats and he asked the question 'Do you think the President is doing a good enough job?' and as he asked a question one by one, these Senate Democrats slinked out one by one so they didn't have to answer it"

Wild Thing's comment........

If there is any justice int he world, Obama will be an albatross around the Democratic party for a generation, even worse then Carter has been to many of them.

All one needs to do is look at Obamas response to the Haiti Earthquake and compare it to the response to the Oil spill problems of the WHITES in South La. He is a RACIST!

He really is a usurper and is pushing for a violent reaction in order to criminalize dissent and nationalize more industries.

May God deliver us from this evil bastard and his comrades in Congress.

" I am the President" ~ Obama...... He Is So Embarassing!!!

Obama at his first Press Conference in 308 days reminding everyone, “I am the President of the United States.”

He did so after being asked if he would either endorse or condemn the organized boycott of Arizona because of their anti-illegal immigration law. As President, Obama said he does not either endorse or condemn boycotts. But he did make it clear he does not support the Arizona law.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama probably says that to himself in the mirror every morning.

Counterterror Adviser John Brennan Defends Jihad as 'Legitimate Tenet of Islam' ~ Whiskey Tango Foxtrot??

Obama’s top adviser on counter-terrorism – John Brennan – is in the news today for his description of how the Obama Administration is approaching the Islamic Jihadist enemy America faces today. Basically, they are pretending the real enemy does not exist. Here is what Brennan said:

“Our enemy is not terrorism, because terrorism is but a tactic. Our enemy is not terror, because terror is a state of mind – and as Americans we refuse to live in fear. Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘Islamists’ or ‘Jihadists,’ because ‘Jihad’ is a ‘Holy Struggle,’ a legitimate tenet of Islam.”

This is not the first time Brennan has made this argument. Back in August of last year, Brennan made an extensive speech laying out the radical worldview of President Obama and his administration. It was this speech in which they essentially declared that the “War on Terror” does not exist.

FOX News

Counterterror Adviser Defends Jihad as 'Legitimate Tenet of Islam'

The president's top counterterrorism adviser on Wednesday called jihad a "legitimate tenet of Islam," arguing that the term "jihadists" should not be used to describe America's enemies.

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces," but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms."
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not "terrorism," because terrorism is a "tactic," and not terror, because terror is a "state of mind" -- though Brennan's title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word "terrorism" in it. But then Brennan said that the word "jihad" should not be applied either.
"Nor do we describe our enemy as 'jihadists' or 'Islamists' because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children," Brennan said.
The technical, broadest definition of jihad is a "struggle" in the name of Islam and the term does not connote "holy war" for all Muslims. However, jihad frequently connotes images of military combat or warfare, and some of the world's most wanted terrorists including Usama bin Laden commonly use the word to call for war against the West.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This idiot needs to spend some time on the Koran.

Newspeak at it’s most dangerous. We have officially been taken over by the enemy.

It will be a cold day in Hell before the Obamunists do anything at all to protect the interests of the United States. In point of fact, everything the Obamunists do is deliberately designed to destroy the U.S. as a world power in the name of making all nations “equal”.

“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” Barack Hussein Obama
“it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit” Barack Hussein Obama
“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.” Barack Hussein Obama
“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country” Barack Hussein Obama
“I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them.” Barack Hussein Obama
“As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.” Barack Hussein Obama
“Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” Barack Hussein Obama
“And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.” Barack Hussein Obama
“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” Barack Hussein Obama
“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.” Barack Hussein Obama
“We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam” Barack Hussein Obama

Passing The Buck Doesn’t “Plug the D#*! Hole” by Sarah Palin

Passing The Buck Doesn’t “Plug the D#*! Hole”

by Sarah Palin

from her Facebok page

Nearly 40 days in, our President finally addressed the American people’s growing concerns about the Gulf Coast oil spill. Listening to today’s press conference, you’d think the administration has been working with single-minded focus on the Gulf gusher since the start of the disaster. In reality, their focus has been anything but singular to help solve this monumental problem.

If the President really was fully focused on this issue from day one, why did it take nine whole days before the administration asked the Department of Defense for help in deploying equipment needed for the extreme depth spill site?

Why was the expert group assembled by Energy Commissioner Steven Chu only set up three weeks after the start of this disaster?

Why was Governor Jindal forced more than a month after the start of the disaster to go on national television to beg for materials needed to tackle the oil spill and for federal approval to build offshore sand barriers that are imperative to protect his state’s coastline?

Why was no mention of the spill made by our President for days on end while Americans waited to hear if he grasped the import of his leadership on this energy issue?

Why have several countries and competent organizations who offered help or expertise in dealing with the spill not even received a response back from the Unified Area Command to this day?

The President claimed that “this notion that somehow the federal government is somehow sitting on the sidelines and for the last three or four or five weeks we’ve just been letting BP make a whole bunch of decisions is simply not true.” But, in fact, that is how U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen described the Obama administration’s approach to this crisis: “We keep a close watch.”

Listening to the President, you get the impression he is continually surprised by the inability of various centralized government agencies to get more involved and help solve problems. His lack of executive experience might explain this because he is apparently unaware that it’s his job as a chief executive to make sure they do their jobs and help solve problems.

The fundamental problem at the core of this crisis is a lack of responsibility. (I risk the President taking my comments personally, but they’re not intended to be personal; my comments reflect what many others feel, and we just want to help him tackle this enormous spill problem.) There’s a culture of buck-passing at the heart of this administration that has caused the tragedy of a sunken oil rig to turn into a potential disaster.

The 1990 Oil Pollution Act was drafted in response to the Exxon-Valdez spill in my home state. It created new procedures for offshore cleanups, specifically putting the federal government in charge of such operations. The President should have used the authority granted by the OPA – immediately – to take control of the situation. That is a big part of what the OPA is for – to designate who is in charge so finger-pointing won’t disrupt efforts to just “plug the d#*! hole.” But instead of immediately engaging with this crisis, our President chose to spend precious time on political pet causes like haranguing the state of Arizona for doing what he himself was supposed to do – secure the nation’s border. He also spent much time fundraising and politicking for liberal candidates and causes while we waited for him to grasp the enormity of the Gulf spill.

Now that the American people are calling him out on his lack of engagement with this disaster, the buck-passing is in full swing – and, unbelievably, his administration is still looking to blame his predecessor. Amazingly, even those of us who support energy independence for America are the brunt of some buck-passing.

He suggested today that a “culture of corruption” at the U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) was solely the previous administration’s responsibility and that the failure of the inspection system was a failure of that administration. That is false. The MMS has been his responsibility since January 20, 2009.

The MMS director who resigned today, Elizabeth Birnbaum, was appointed by his administration. And the most recent inspection of the oil rig took place a mere 10 days before the explosion – also very much on his watch, not President Bush’s.

The President is also now attempting to somehow distance himself from his administration’s recent decision to open a few areas of the continental shelf to oil and gas exploration. That’s unfortunate because America desperately needs our domestic oil and natural gas. We rely on it for our prosperity, security, and freedom. The President’s decision to open a few areas to offshore exploration was the right decision then; and unlike his quickly evolving position on energy development now, I continue to believe it’s the right decision today – because energy independence is in the long-term economic and security interests of the United States.

As I explained in an article in National Review last year, conventional sources like natural gas “can act as a clean ‘bridge fuel’ to a future when more renewable sources are available.” I do not, as the President mistakenly believes, think we can “drill, baby, drill” our way out of all of our troubles. As I have consistently stated, we need an “all of the above” approach to energy independence that combines conventional drilling with energy conservation and renewable-energy development. My record in Alaska clearly shows my commitment to this “all of the above” approach. Over 20 percent of Alaska’s electricity currently comes from renewable sources. As governor, I put forward a long-term plan to increase that figure to 50 percent by 2025, which is the most ambitious renewable energy target in the nation. I take great pride in helping to make Alaska, in the words of the New York Times, “a Frontier for Green Power,” even as we continue to embrace the need to “drill, baby, drill” at the same time.

Alaska can be that frontier for renewable energy only because our conventional oil and gas reserves provide us with “a bridge” to a greener energy future. In fact, Alaska has enough reserves of both oil and gas to help the United States cross that bridge – if only we are allowed to drill!

Please, Mr. President, hear me on this, if nothing else: if it’s your Administration’s decision to suspend the leases of new oil field developments off the coast of Alaska in response to the Gulf’s deepwater spill, and you still remain committed to locking up ANWR and other oil-rich lands, please know you are making a mistake. Unless we continue to drill here and drill now, we risk digging ourselves deeper into the hole created by our continued dependence on foreign energy – which often comes from regimes that care nothing for our prosperity or security, and even less for global environmental safety.

We need affordable, reliable, secure, environmentally-sound, and domestically-produced energy, but this administration continues to lock up federal land filled with huge energy reserves. If there is to be a moratorium on offshore development, then it’s time we stop ignoring our safest options for domestic development – places like ANWR and NPR-A in my home state of Alaska.

And it’s time for the administration to stop passing the buck and get control of the disaster in the Gulf. There’s a reason why Harry Truman had that famous sign on his desk. The “buck stops” with the occupant of the Oval Office. When the American people elected President Obama they gave him responsibility to handle this disaster. He promised to “heal the earth, and watch the waters recede...” or something far-fetched like that. It was unbelievable then, it’s impossible now, but what I believe he meant was that he promised to be held accountable. With all due respect, Mr. President, you have a huge job in front of you. We hope you’re learning. Please learn that we must have domestic energy development, you must stop looking backward and blaming Bush, and we must all work together to “plug the d#*! hole.”

WHACK! Love it!

What is Obama going to run on in 2012?

Blaming Bush for his failures? At this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if the entire Democrat platform is reduced to “Not George W. Bush” by 2016.

That’s not leadership.

Obama hides for 37 days and the MSM is silent.


Oh, and thanks to Obama’s moratorium on drilling, look for $5.00 a gallon this summer, which the Dems and the MSM will somehow blame on Bush/Big Oil while giving Obama yet another free pass.

Obama is in over his head by about 5,000 feet and a few fish!!!

ElRushbo and Zev Chafets Book: "Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One"

Rush Limbaugh: I know I'll be destroyed eventually


He's the most-listened-to personality in the history of U.S. radio, but Rush Limbaugh feared for his life recently and said he knows he faces destruction at some point, to the delight of some of the American public.

In an e-mail sent to Zev Chafets, author of the new book "Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One," Limbaugh admitted, "I know I am a target and I know I will be destroyed eventually. I fear that all I have accomplished and all the wealth I have accumulated will be taken from me, to the cheers of the crowd. I know I am hated and despised by the American Left."

The message was sent the day after President Obama laughed at comedian Wanda Sykes' joke about Limbaugh's death during last year's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

In a diatribe against Limbaugh, Sykes said: "Rush Limbaugh, 'I hope the country fails' – I hope his kidneys fail, how about that?"

The dinner was broadcast nationally on C-SPAN, and a clip has been posted on YouTube, with Sykes' remarks about Limbaugh beginning at the two-minute mark:



Obama can clearly be seen laughing as Sykes delivers her line about Limbaugh's kidneys failing.

"He needs a waterboarding, that's what he needs," she continued.

In "An Army of One," Chafets notes that while Obama laughed at the kidney-failure joke, he stopped grinning when she started talking about waterboarding.

"He saw the humor in hooking Rush up to a broken dialysis machine, but waterboarding was nothing to joke about," writes Chafets.

"Atypically, Limbaugh didn't say a word on the air about Sykes' routine, or the fact that the president of the United States had smiled broadly, in front of the entire country, about the prospect of his death. He was disconcerted, though, and he was right to be. He was in first place on the enemies list of the president of the United States."

Limbaugh is also in favor of homosexual civil unions, according to Chafets.

"He regards homosexuality as, most probably, biologically determined, and while he opposes gay marriage as culturally subversive, he has no problem with gay civil unions – which is the stance of President Obama and Hillary Clinton," the author explains.

When it comes to his thoughts about broadcasting colleague Bill O'Reilly of the Fox News Channel, Limbaugh likened him to the buffoonish TV anchor portrayed by actor Ted Knight on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show."

"He's Ted Baxter. Sorry, but somebody's got to say it," Limbaugh noted. "I never mention others on the air, and I don't engage in contrived rivalry crap. That's bad business; it encourages people not to hear the station you are on."

Limbaugh does make an exception for CNN's Larry King, whom Chafets says Rush truly doesn't like.

"He never had nice things to say about me, from 1988 to the present," Limbaugh explained. "He was working midnights [on the radio] when I started and demanded that his syndicator move him to afternoon drive when my success was obvious. He bombed and quit radio for CNN exclusively."

On his radio program today, Limbaugh got provocative against the Obama adminstration when he agreed with one of his callers that Obama was deliberately doing little to resolve the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, to further his leftist agenda against drilling and capitalism in general.

"Everything is political. They want the disaster," Limbaugh emphasized.
"I know this is a tough thing for some of you to believe and hear because we don't think of presidents this way, but we got one now and an entire administration that do think this way – that everything that happens must be seen through the prism of 'Is it a political opportunity or is it a political liability?'
"If you doubt this, it's been six weeks. We now have Democrat commentators all suggesting that we know President Obama cares, but he's gonna have to do something to show it. He's gonna have to use a little emotion out there. The cool, calm Obama is not what we want."
"These are not things that you can fake," Limbaugh continued. "[If] you care about something, you care about it. If it really angers you, you get angry about it. When you're a leader and things like this happen and you think people are being lackadaisical in fixing it, then you step in and you see to it that everybody heels to. There hasn't been any of that. There's been the usual political posturing. ...
"We don't have a leader. Obama's not a leader. He's an exploiter. He creates problems. He exacerbates them for the express purpose of taking advantage of them, pure and simple, folks."


ElRushbo speaking about this book:

From his website, transcript from his show yesterday ( May 27th)

Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One

An Army of One. It's by Zev Chafets. Zev is the writer who did that cover piece on me, the New York Times Magazine, what was it, two years ago? Yeah, just about that. I spent 16 hours with him, interviewing. It's not a biography. It's certainly not an authorized biography. It's got some biographical stuff in it but it's not primarily a biography. I've had a lot of e-mail exchanges. To this day I have not read the whole thing. I've thumbed through it -- you know, check a page here, check a page there. (interruption) Well... Snerdley says, "Why not?" I don't read anything about myself. I haven't read the New York Times piece all the way through.
I just don't. If they get it right I already know it, and if they get it wrong it's par for the course. So, you know, why bother? It is what it is. But I have talked to a number of people. Snerdley thought it was okay. H.R.'s got a couple nitpicks with it.

I don't recall ever saying that George Bush was "a preppie snob," George Bush 41. I don't recall ever saying that, and Zev still doesn't understand my attitude about racial problems in the country but those are minor things. He tried. He tried to get it. (interruption) Well, here's the way that came about. He asked me a question. I think he said he asked you about July 4th, Independence Day, and he said that July 4th's no big deal to you. Independence Day is no big deal to you. Mr. Snerdley is African-American, and he asked me what I thought. I said, "I think it's time to let all that stuff go." This is the one country in the world that ended slavery; 500,000 Americans lost their lives.

It's 2010. This country has the most opportunity for anybody who wants to seek it of any country in the history of the world. No country's perfect. No human being is perfect. We still have bigots and racists, and we got people that discriminate against people for all kinds of things in this country. Zev kept saying, "But do you not understand how an African-American might not be able to look at the founding of this country as something glorious?" I said, "I can understand that, but this is not the days of the founding and the people who wrote the Constitution allowed for an amendment process to fix it." I said, "Look, you go back and you look at John Adams in the days of the discussions and the Federalist Papers. They knew they had a problem with slavery in the South, but in order to gain independence and to have a unity of purpose in seeking independence from the British, they had get the southern states.

"They had to have the southern states join them. John Adams quoted numerous times, 'We're going to have a problem with this.'" All the founders were not slave owners, they were not racists. I think the continual focus on whatever original sin this country has is serving only to hold people back and not move forward in the present day, and I think that's by design in a lot of cases and I really resent it. It makes me sad to see so many people born in this country told every day that you don't have a chance here simply because of the color of their skin, which is not true anymore. It's time to get with the present times. But even saying this, I know I'm tweaking a lot of people. "You just don't get it, Rush." You know what my problem is? I told him this. I am the most colorblind person in the country.

I am not at all oriented toward political correctness, and I assume everybody else is colorblind because everybody else says that's what they want, is a colorblind society. So I believe people. I'm a literalist. Somebody tells me they want and wish we had a colorblind society, fine! Well, let's act like we are. Let's be that. So I am that. But still there are people who just want to take... You know, race is a provocative issue, it is controversial, and as such, it's something that you can build something interesting about. Those are two little nitpicks. He doesn't get it all wrong on race and the Bush 41 stuff is minor. But everybody that's read it says it's pretty good, and Brent Bozell said, "You really ought to really hype it because the guy has shown that you can do a quality piece. He was nice to you. He was respectful of you," which is all true.

So the name of the book -- and I'm sorry, I thought I gave it in the first hour but they're telling me that I didn't -- is Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One. I think one of the arguments against me also is I'm not an original thinker. Anybody that has listened to this program for 20, 21 years, knows that that's stupid. It's just nuts. It is laughable. Chafets, I think, captures that notion in the book, too. So maybe I should sit down and read it cover to cover. Just read a page here, flip to another chapter, read a page there, just try to get a flavor for it.(interruption) What? What are you saying? Snerdley says he thinks it would be good for me to read it. Well, it's like H.R. says, though: If it's true, I already know it. If it's not true, par for the course. (laughing)


RUSH: Don't forget, my friends, on this race business it was I, El Rushbo, who warned all of you who called here prior to the election, "But, Rush, don't you think the election of Obama will be good because it will end all this racist talk? The country will improve because it's no longer racist 'cause it elected a black president." I, El Rushbo, was the one to say, "No, it's only going to get worse. The race hustlers, the race industry is excited about this possibility," I said, "because any criticism of Obama will be said to be racist." And, lo and behold, right again was I, El Rushbo. Are race relations not more strained than ever now? Everything's about race. Everything is about skin color to these people, or however they classify people, however they seek to group them, whatever, they're victims. Everybody's a hapless victim of some magical, mysterious, powerful majority that wreaks damage and hell, havoc on all these poor, unsuspecting people.


Wild Thing's comment........

Rush is in my prayers. - Sadly, he’s right. He is in danger. The left - and their boys in the MSM - cover their own hatred - they project their own evil onto us - it’s how we know what they’re thinking. They hate Rush. He’s our canary in the coal mine - when they get him - we’ll be next.

He is a fighter and has defended himself against the left at many turns. has more listeners now than ever.And he does have legions of fans praying for him! He must have made that comment at a vulnerable time (I think it was last year when Sykes made those remarks.)

Rush and Glenn are both in the crosshairs. and Michele Bachman, Liz Cheney, Sarah Palin, Mark Levin and even Sean Hannity. All of them are targets for the left.

Years ago I will never forget this. I have listened to Rush since 1998 when he started on EIB. I got my first computer in 1997 during Clintons regime. I headed straight to a forum and started to post about Clinton. The attacks from the left came flying every day I was online and death threats too. I tried to ignore the attacks and kept posting information I found online about Bill and Hillary. I had never experienced attacks like not only I got but all of us that were Republilcans. It shocked me and LOL lots of times I was posting and crying at the same time. hahaha

As I was listening to Rush I heard him say how if he was not being attacked by the left he was not doing his job. I will never forget he said that...NEVER. It changed something in me to not be afraid to speak up and from that day on I have not stopped.

We need to pray for these talk show warriors and especially for Rush, there is no one like him, not even close. The other greats are good too, but Rush leads the way. That is why they will try to destroy him. If he didn’t matter they wouldn’t bother.

Tavis Smiley: More Christians Than Muslims Blow Up People Every Single Day ~ WTH??

Completely delusional Tavis Smiley claiming that Christians are blowing people up everyday in this country. Smiley said that there are “so many more examples” of Christians blowing people up than there are of Muslims.

IWO JIMA: Not Easy Then, Not Easy Now

IWO JIMA: Not Easy Then, Not Easy Now

Marines race across the beach to experience a fraction of the experiences the Marines who fought for Iwo Jima might have had on D-Day of the Battle . The major difference between today and 1945 is that today no one is shooting at them!


The guide for this trip asked the Marines to rush this dune to get an idea of what the Marines who took Iwo Jima faced upon landing. Every step you take up, you slide down and into the dune. You have to work hard to get to the top. Imagine doing that with 100 lbs on your back while being shot at and artillery raining down on you.


Mount Suribachi overlooks the landing beaches. During the battle for Iwo Jima , Mt Suribachi gave the defending Japanese forces a perfect vantage point from which to direct lethal artillery fire on the Marines' hastily dug positions on the beach.


Futatsune Beach , today known by visiting Marines as Invasion Beach , is where on 19 February,1945, the Marines landed on D-Day of the invasion of Iwo Jima . This picture was taken from near the top of Mt. Suribachi . Forward Observer's dream!


A heavy machine gun, possibly a Japanese Type 92 Heavy Machine Gun, lies abandoned in a bunker overlooking the landing beaches. There are still dozens of these bunkers all over the island. Most of them were destroyed during the battle. This pillbox still bore the scars of the fighting. It was pockmarked with bullet holes and the inside was blackened. I imagine a flame thrower was used to clear that pillbox.


This monument was erected on the spot where Franklin Sousley, Harlon Block, Michael Strank, John Bradley, Rene Gagnon, and Ira Hayes raised the American flag 4 days into the battle for Iwo Jima . Iwo Jima is like Mecca for the Marines. Visiting Marines leave personal mementos behind during their 'pilgrimages'. The Eagle, Globe and Anchors on the left and right side of the monument are completely covered in dog tags left by visiting Marines and service men to honor the 6,821 killed. Remember what they did.


"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag"... Theodore Roosevelt 1907
"The privacy & dignity of our citizens (are) being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence but, when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen - a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of a (person's) life.

Obama Pointing Fingers While Leaking Waivers To Big Oil

Obama Pointing Fingers While Leaking Waivers To Big Oil

by Dave Weinbaum

( Dave Weinbaum at Facebook)

Every Chicago politician knows you don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

The problem is how to appear to slap around a client who has stepped so far out of line that he makes you appear to be responsible for the disaster du jour.

This balancing act takes years of training, organizing and the ability to bury long-term friends and family under busses when they become liabilities. Reverend Wright just gave a “Hallelujah!” to that in a letter to black institutions confirming Obama’s shove down under. It must have been pretty crowded under that Greyhound with Farrakhan, Coakley, Specter, Corzine, Lincoln , Grandma and now the entire state of Arizona between the axles.

Never point a finger at those who butter your bread

According to The Center for Responsive Politics, British Petroleum execs and employees gave $71,000 to presidential candidate Barack Obama, their highest contribution to any candidate during the 2008 cycle.

Since the BP well explosion, the president and his administration have granted at least 27 separate environmental study waivers to potential drillers, including BP. These gifts came after President Obama vowed a “…relentless response to stop the leak” and prevent more damage to the gulf. The President assailed the “…ridiculous spectacle” of oil executives blaming each other. He denounced a “…cozy relationship”the oil companies had with the federal government.

Imagine that! Barack Obama blaming someone else for blaming someone else. Where have I heard that kind of thing before?

Obama’s EPA publicly ignored the disaster for its first ten days. Guess they thought the President was referring to another golf match, not the match that could light up the entire gulf.

For the record, the administration has taken umbrage at any connection to waivers and BP donation(s). However, as of today I’m unaware that any of the 71 large has been returned.

When your world is full of potholes start a cement company

Well at least the President has come up with the beginnings of a good solution. He’s appointed yet another CYA (cover your arse) commission to pass the buck upon.

The only thing transparent about this president is his corruption.

This isn’t just a right-wing attack on Obama. The Socialists smell oil in the water and are racing in for the kill. They want to devour big oil and the evil profit they take away from their off-shore drilling rigs at the expense of making us more dependent on terrorist benefitting oil.

Left-wing bloggers are comparing Obama’s gulf leak to Bush’s Katrina.

I’m waiting for Farrakhan to claim the righties came and bombed the rig, unplugging the well, just to destroy the presidency of his personal “selection,” Barack Hussein Obama. Or he could claim that Limbaugh was behind it because he was allergic to the “colorful” fish spotted in the Gulf.

Heck, even Mr. Sweetness and Light--a leg-tingled Chris Matthews--wants the oil executives executed!

I grew up on a rattlesnake ranch. I was an only child—eventually.

Back on the good ole’ South Side of Chicago, they had a way of taking care of friends who got too arrogant and/or cozy, lest they blow the cover of the bosses. They’d fit them with large cement booties and send them to the bottom of the Chicago River or Lake Michigan .

Hey, if used right this could solve everyone’s problems, both scientific and rat extermination. They could even do a study:

How many cement booted oil executives does it take to stop a major sea oil leak?

If they’re one or two short, they can always try to recruit Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity or other daily acidic irritants.

Finally, a warning to Ex-Governor Blagojevich: Be wary of any cement truck following you around--in or out of prison.


Wild Thing's comment........

Well oh wow, LOL thank goodness NOW they are in who was in charge for the first 35 days?

If this happened on Reagan’s watch he would have been on the phone on day one with the CEO’s saying how can we help to minimize the damage let us know what you need. Then he would have been on the phone to the governors from the surrounding states asking them what they needed and if they could also provide support the minimize and plug the leak. He would have also given governors like Jindal free rein to do whatever needed to be done. Obama is late to the party but: HE IS PACKED FOR VACATION.

“I have directed BP to plug the leak ...”

Thank, god, it might not have occurred to BP to plug the leak if not for obummer’s stepping in after weeks of diddling.

Obama is the least qualified guy in whatever room he walks into!

DOJ Lawyers Draft Challenge to AZ Law

DOJ Lawyers Draft Challenge to AZ Law

FOX News

A team of Justice Department attorneys reviewing the new immigration law in Arizona has recommended that the U.S. government challenge the state law in federal court, but the recommendation faces an uncertain future and tough scrutiny from others in the Justice Department, sources with knowledge of the process tell Fox News.

Staff attorneys within the Justice Department recently sent higher-ups the recommendation. At the same time, the Justice Department's Civil Division, which oversees the majority of immigration enforcement issues for the department, has drafted a "civil complaint" that would be filed in federal court in Arizona, sources said.

The draft complaint challenges the Arizona law as unconstitutional, saying it is illegal because it impedes federal law, according to the sources, who would not offer any more details about the draft complaint or the arguments made in it.

Two weeks ago, Attorney General Eric Holder told lawmakers such an issue was being considered by Justice Department lawyers reviewing the new law, which outlines and possibly broadens the authority of police to detain those suspected of being in the country illegally.

"We are examining the [Arizona] law and trying to determine if it contravenes the federal responsibility [toward] immigration, whether or not what the Arizona legislature has tried to do is actually preempted by federal law, by federal statutes." he told the House Judiciary Committee on May 13. "The regulation of our borders and the immigration that occurs by crossing our borders is something that is inherently something I believe for the national government to take responsibility for."
He also said it would not be "an extended period of time" before his department decides whether to take action on "preemption" grounds, adding that the Justice Department's "view of the law will be expressed relatively soon."

Two sources with knowledge of the review said the draft complaint, which is now receiving input from the attorney general's office and other Justice Department offices, is not an indication that the Justice Department will ultimately file a lawsuit.

Holder told lawmakers that the Civil Rights Division will be monitoring the application of the Arizona law, set to go into effect in late July, and could take subsequent action.

"We are concerned about the potential impact that it has and whether it contravenes federal civil rights laws, potentially leading to racial profiling," he said. "We would constantly be monitoring it to see if there are civil rights violations, civil rights concerns, that are generated by the implementation of the law."

You have got to be kidding me. Is there anyone in the Obama Justice Department who has actually read the Constitution at least once?

What ARROGANT BASTARDS! They REFUSE to enforce the law and they want to prevent anyone else from doing it!

Another attack on our country by obama and his administration. A state impeding federal law for upholding Federal law.

Considering that it ( AZ. Law) is a toned down version of a Federal law that is on the books, can’t wait to see the outcome of this one.

This November is critical!

Radical Agenda for Ground Zero Mosque ~ NY City Community Board Approves Mosque

NYC community board OKs ground zero mosque plans


After hours of contentious public comment, a New York City community board voted late Tuesday to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near ground zero.

"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said. "We believe that this is significant step in the Muslim community to counteract the hate and fanaticism in the minority of the community."


FOX Hannity's show

The 'Cordoba Initiative' has announced plans to build a $100-million plus mosque overlooking Ground Zero at the World Trade Center.

Its leader, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, says it "will serve as the platform to launch a broader vision of Muslim-West harmony and interdependence." As he has made clear, Rauf supports supplementing our Constitution by making sharia law optional -- optional at least for now -- for Muslims living here in America. Debra Burlingame and Robert Spencer discussed this last night on-air with Sean Hannity.

IMAM FEISAL ABDUL RAUF, BEHIND GROUND ZERO MOSQUE: We have the right to build this building as a right. We don't need any zoning variations. We can just go ahead and build it without permissions or expressions of support from anybody.

BURLINGAME: Yes. But — but when he published this in 2007 in the Muslim world, he didn't call it "What's Right With Islam" and a later title, "What's Right with America." He called it "A Call to Prayer From the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Da'wah From the Heart of America..."

HANNITY: Meaning?

BURLINGAME: "... Post-9/11." Robert, tell him what da'wah means.

SPENCER: Da'wah is Islamic proselytizing. And in the Islamic law, da'wah precedes jihad. You call the nonbelievers to Islam. And if they refuse to accept it, then you initiate the jihad against them. But the whole goal of both da'wah and jihad is to impose Islamic law or Sharia upon the nonbelievers as a political system, not as a religious one.

HANNITY: What about the controversy — controversy involving his father?

SPENCER: The controversy involving his father involves the Muslim Brotherhood and the fact that this guy has ties to this group that is, in its own words, "dedicated to eliminating and destroying western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house."

HANNITY: So you both believe — and as I read this, this is becoming more and more alarming to me. And you have been very nice to give me a copy of the book and tell me about the translation when it was first published, you know, in other countries — that he would want to impose or at least allow for Muslims to have the ability to transcend the American court system.

SPENCER: Oh, yes.


Wild Thing's comment........

God help us all. The vote was 29-to-1 in favor of the plan, with 10 abstentions. Only one didn’t forget. Screw new York city! The Muslims attack it and they give them the keys.

"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said.

It is the seed of surrender that will lead to unending violence. Townley is the worst kind of coward.

“Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any AMERICA because some foreign soldier will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!” Chesty Puller

Sharia law and the US constitution are like oil and water. They would have to basically completely destroy the foundation right out from under this country to get even a hint of Sharia law passed.

Muslims have no right to dictate laws in this society !

It is shameful that they have supporters in our government!!!!

Art Linkletter Passed Away At 97 R.I.P. Thank You For The Laughter Art!

Art Linkletter died yesterday at the age of 97. Linkletter was a household name TV Host for decades, known for his segment on “House Party,” called “Kid’s Say the Darndest Things.” The video gives a good taste of what Linkletter was like.

These kids are soooo adorable, I laughed all the way through the video. ! Wild Thing


Art Linkletter, the genial radio and television host who spent more than two decades interviewing children and getting them to say "the darndest things," has died. He was 97.

He died today at his home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles, the Associated Press reported, citing his son-in-law, Art Hershey.

Linkletter gained fame as a sympathetic interviewer on "House Party," a daytime variety show that aired on CBS radio and TV from 1945 to 1969. In the show's best-known segment, "Kids Say the Darndest Things," Linkletter would draw amusing answers from schoolchildren by asking who did the housework at home, or whom they wanted to marry.

He capitalized on the popularity of the routine through a series of books, including "Kids Say the Darndest Things" (1957), which topped the best-seller list for two straight years. CBS revived the concept and title for a primetime show in 1998, with Bill Cosby as host and Linkletter as a contributor.

Linkletter also hosted the NBC program "People Are Funny," which ran from 1954 to 1961. The show put ordinary people into extraordinary situations to capture their varying reactions. Some critics now call it one of television's first reality shows.

Linkletter said his first radio interview with a child was in 1943 with his son Jack, then 5. Asked about his first day at school, Jack said he wasn't going back.

"I said, why not? He says, 'Well, I can't read and I can't write and they won't let me talk.'"

More than 25 years of such interviews followed. "Kids under 10 and people over 70" were best on the show, Linkletter said. "The old people don't care, and the kids don't know what they're saying," he said.

Asked what's good about aging, Linkletter gave the answer he once got from a 100-year-old woman: "There's so little peer pressure.'"

Why Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?” by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

In a May 25th, 2010, Washington Post article titled “Obama backs 'don't ask, don't tell' compromise that could pave way for repeal” by Michael D. Shear and Ed O'Keefe, the writers state,

“President Obama has endorsed a "don't ask, don't tell" compromise between lawmakers and the Defense Department, the White House announced Monday, an agreement that may sidestep a key obstacle to repealing the military's policy banning gay men and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces.”

The article quotes Senators Joe Lieberman and Patrick Murphy as saying,

"It is our firm belief that it is time to repeal this discriminatory policy that not only dishonors those who are willing to give their lives in service to their country but also prevents capable men and women with vital skills from serving in the armed forces,"

Obama’s national security mindset is to reduce U.S. military power ostensibly so that no enemy feels threatened and everyone can stand around holding hands and singing combayah. He does not understand and does not care about U.S. military capability; and that fact is abundantly evident by his budget proposals. One amendment to the Defense Bill calls for Obama to certify that there is would be no diminution of combat capability by allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military. Well? What kind of “mental giant,” given that he is an advocate for repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” believes that he would certify otherwise?

Chairman of the JCS, Admiral Mike Mullen stated in February,

"I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens."

Sorry Admiral, your bootlicking political correctness is showing! To state that homosexuals have to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens is absurd! First, they don’t have to lie; only an idiot would assert that! Second, what does keeping ones mouth closed about ones sexual predilections have to do with defending their fellow citizens?

Incidentally, the article does not inform readers what the “compromise” contains, nor does it quote there from. Perhaps the writers didn’t know when they collaborated on the article, or perhaps they did not want to inform the public of its content.

Homosexuals who desire to serve in the military have that right, and that right is inscribed in law commonly titled, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The law generally states that no one may be asked about ones sexual predilections, and prohibits from service those who announce their homosexual conduct or are observed to engage in homosexual acts.

Any rational observer understands that laws are inherently discriminatory either favoring one person, or group over another, or restraining the same in some way. So, if “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is discriminatory it is in that context. THE FACT IS, HOMOSEXUALS HAVE THE RIGHT AND CAN SERVE! To suggest otherwise is patently false.

However, opposition to homosexuals serving openly in the military is for valid reasons having nothing to do with morality, commitment and/or patriotism, although those points could be logically supported. It has everything to do with living arrangements and the INHERENT PREDATORY NATURE OF HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR. Men who look upon other men and women who regard other women as sex objects are sexually predatory. If it’s mutual, nobody cares, but becomes a serious problem when it isn’t.

If they want to serve, what is the problem with keeping their behavior to themselves? If it is a larger effort to force society to accept their behavior as normal, here is some counsel for the political class. There is no number of laws that can force acceptance and no matter what people may say, they will not accept homosexual behavior as normal. Liberals can sugar coat it, sweet talk it, sprinkle holy water on it, call it by anything other than what it is, and it is at the end of the day, abnormal and divisive behavior.

This essay is not an attempt to convince anyone to believe other than the way they want to believe, it is however an attempt to inject a dose of reality into the debate if Americans care about the Nation’s military capability.

People who live in ignorant bliss about the nature of combat and living conditions should put on a pack and pick up a rifle and accompany foot soldiers or Marines for three weeks or a month in combat; live with them in the division area while they rest up; and/or live with them in a barracks that has three or four to a room, or 30-50 in a squad bay sharing common hygiene facilities.

Thank you but no thanks to having a sexual predator making a pass at a normal male/female. Try putting an attractive female in a room with three or four hot blooded, testosterone pumped males; good idea? Hardly!

Aside: The Navy’s initiative, sparked no doubt by the Obama administration to put women on submarines is about a dumb as it gets!

Rational people must stop this nonsense and ask, “What is the purpose of the United States Armed Forces?” “Is it to engage the enemy in combat and prevail, or to be a laboratory for sex experimentation?” The answer to the first question is that it is to defend the Nation against external enemies and provide the raw power that underwrites U.S. foreign policy. To the second, given the history of the last seventy years, one wonders.

Ask any, except careerist military leaders like JCS Chairman, Mike Mullen and other likeminded politically motivated military leaders whose interest is the next star or in Mullen’s case just sucking up, and he will tell you that he has to spend too much time dealing with social issues that could be better spent leading, managing, training and fighting. Consider this present debate, and believe it, repeal will not end the debate even if sodomites win.

Passing a law and writing a regulation is simple by comparison to implementation of those laws and regulations.

Political correctness has gone amuck, and the COS of the Army is a bright and shining example of obscene stupidity. For instance, General Casey’s idiotic comment about his concern for the negative impact of Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s terrorist attack given its potential adverse impact on diversity in the Army/Armed Forces. Wow! Now there’s a General with the right priorities! No doubt a card carrying Obama man! Oh, how power perverts and corrupts.

There is no need to repeal a law that works.

Message for Congress: “Stop the idiocy and get on with business of winning wars when they become necessary and deterring others through readiness and strength. Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” carries zero benefit except for a relative handful who could then troll openly to fulfill their homosexual lusts, but in the alternative would demonstrably undermine the efficiency and effectiveness of the Armed Forces and would further divide the nation.”

Folks, it’s time to crush the idiots and take this country back! November is coming!

Semper Fidelis

Wussies To The Left Of Me Wimps To The Right by Charlie Daniels

Wussies To The Left Of Me Wimps To The Right

by Charlie Daniels

Marine Corps legend, Chesty Puller, when informed in the middle of a fierce ground battle that his troops were completely surrounded, said words to the effect of, "Good, now we can shoot at the S.O.B.s in any direction".

"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!" These are the words and deeds of brave men who stood for what they believed in even if it took their last drop of blood.

America has always won against far superior forces, simply because our people have always had the tenacity and the courage to spit in the face of an enemy's overwhelming strength and never give an inch even when their backs were to the wall.

American history is full of accounts of bravery and valor that reaches far beyond the pale of any simple call to duty to a place of rarified air only visited by the bravest of the brave and the boldest of the bold.

How would you like to go to war with Eric Holder guarding your left flank and Janet Napolitano guarding your right?
How would you like to get in a bar fight with Harry Reid watching your back?

The schools in this country are teaching revisionist history to our children, belittling or even omitting American heroes and reducing morals to a gray area with no absolutes and even denying the omnipotence of the God who made the very earth they stand on, the ACLU standing by with bated breath, eager to sue at the mere mention of His name.

Part of the Supreme Court thinks the Constitution is only a list of suggestions, and from the looks of things that attitude will only worsen with the recent appointees.

Our President lies with impunity and criticizes an immigration bill he admits he hadn't even read, while taking every opportunity to smear the country that was silly enough to elect him President.

Our Attorney General is more concerned with extending the rights of a full-fledged American citizen to a murdering scumbag Islamic terrorist than he is in seeing justice carried out. He also hasn't read the immigration bill that he is criticizing and threatening to bring legal action against it.

Our Director of Homeland Security is seriously not up to the job and only the grace of God saved the lives of untold numbers of Americans in New York recently when an Islamic terrorist who had flown to Pakistan something like thirteen times without making the no fly list left a bomb on a busy Manhattan street and scampered to the airport where he almost escaped aboard an Arab airline. She is also criticizing the immigration bill that she hasn't read.

That's three of the most powerful people in the U.S.A. lying about and distorting legislation they admitted they haven't even read. It's insane.
Our Democrat-controlled Congress and Senate, realizing that they will probably not have a majority in both houses after November are feverishly cramming one catastrophic spending program after another down the throats of an Obama weary America.

There seems to be a pervasive attitude of "If ya can't beat 'em join 'em" as state after state gets ready to legalize certain drugs and there are those who say that we just can't do anything about our southern border.

I have one word for that, "baloney".

We can do something about anything if we would only go about it the right way. We just simply don't have enough real men in power who are willing to stand for something besides their next election and the political party they belong to.

They think no more about betraying America than they do of swatting a fly, a pitiful bunch of limp-wristed cowards who blow in the wind like a limp rag, lacking the guts or the integrity to pay the cost of doing the right thing for America.

Anybody with a mere semblance of a brain has to know that what Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats are doing can only have a bad ending, in fact, in my estimation, bad is a much too mild a word to describe what's going to happen when Obama's crippled chickens start coming home to roost.

And yet there is not one strong voice on Capitol Hill who is willing to risk the wrath of the media to say, "Hey wait a minute, this President is ruining the economy of our country for generations to come if not forever!!!"

Not one has the gonads to stand up and shout, "No you cannot grant citizenship to twelve million people who came into this country illegally just so the Democrats can stay in office for the next hundred years!!!

Whatever happened to the men who had the guts to stand for what is right, no matter how unpopular, no matter what the personal cost?

What ever happened to the American citizen who would stand up and say, "Hell no, don't even think about taking my guns away and I demand school vouchers for my children so they can learn what I think they should learn instead of that socialist crap the teacher's unions are supporting. I'm tired of paying taxes and having my money given to support the socialistic laziness of a nation like Greece. I want to hear my President and his administration call an Islamic terrorist an Islamic terrorist and I want the ones we've caught tried in a military tribunal."

It seems that America's pioneer spirit has all but evaporated in the steamy morass of political correctness and compromise that is taking more backbone out of each succeeding generation.

I'm so sick of the empty suits and milksop scoundrels on both sides of the aisle in Washington and the state capitols.

America is looking for a few good men and women; spineless sellouts need not apply.

Wussies to the left of me, wimps to the right.

It's sickening.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our country.

God Bless America

Wisconsin Veteran Must Remove Flag In Window After Memorial Day

Wisconsin Veteran Must Remove Flag After Memorial Day

FOX News

An Army veteran in Wisconsin will be allowed to display an American flag until Memorial Day, but the symbol honoring his service in Iraq and Kosovo must come down next Tuesday, his wife told

Dawn Price, 27, of Oshkosh, Wis., said she received a call from officials at Midwest Realty Management early Wednesday indicating that she and her husband, Charlie, would be allowed to continue flying the American flag they’ve had in their window for months through the holiday weekend. The couple had previously been told they had to remove the flag by Saturday or face eviction due to a company policy that bans the display of flags, banners and political or religious materials.

“It’s basically an extension so we can fly the flag on Memorial Day,” Price told “It does need to come down after that.”

Charlie Price, 28, served tours of duty as a combat engineer in Iraq and Kosovo, his wife said. To honor his eight years of service, she began decorating their apartment during Veterans Day in November. An American flag topped off the display, she said.

“I knew it made Charlie really proud to see that,” she said. “And this isn’t something new. This has been up for quite some time now.”

Veterans’ groups were furious at the realtors’ refusal to allow the flag to fly.

“As a veteran, it sickens me that the Dawn and Charlie Price’s building management company would imply that the American flag could be construed as offensive by their residents,” said Ryan Gallucci, a spokesman for AmVets.

“We’re talking about our most revered national symbol. This is insulting to anyone who has defended our flag honorably, like Charlie Price.”

Dawn Price said she now works to amend the federal Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005, which states no “condominium association, cooperative association, or residential real estate management association” may stop someone from flying the American flag. The law, however, does not apply to renters.

“This has been eating at us since Friday,” she said. ‘The best way to fight this isn’t getting an eviction and going after these people in court. That’s just going to cost us a lot of time, energy and money.”

Instead, Dawn Price said she either intends to place a curtain between the flag and the apartment window to block it from onlookers or will move it to a rear balcony come next week.


Wild Thing's comment........

By not wanting to offend another country, they have instead offended a war veteran who served his country honorably so people like these rental companies can wake up everyday and make a living. This is a slap in the face to this hero that served, and a slap in the face to every American who has ever served.

Just think if everyone that lived in our country loved our country and appreciated why and HOW they have been able to live in the land of the free this about the Falg would never be an issue.....never ever.

Justice Department Declines to Appoint Independent Counsel for Sestak Case

Congress Demanding Special Prosecutor For White House Bribe ....this video is AFTER "Justice Department Declines to Appoint Independent Counsel for Sestak Case"


Justice Department declines to appoint independent counsel for Sestak case

The Department of Justice doesn’t need any outside help investigating the White House — at least that’s what DOJ says. In a letter to California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich attempts to tip-toe around the congressman’s request for an independent counsel to investigate a bribery claim made by Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak.

“You have asked that a special counsel be appointed to handle the investigation of this matter,” Weich writes. “The Department of Justice, however, has a long history of handling investigations of high level officials professionally and independently, without the need to appoint a special counsel.”

Sestak first made the bribery allegation in February, telling a Pennsylvania radio host that a White House official offered him a job in exchange that he not run for Senate, and has reiterated that claim multiple times in the last week.

In response to the DOJ letter, Issa released the following: “The attorney general’s refusal to take action in the face of such felonious allegations undermines any claim to transparency and integrity that this administration asserts. The bottom line is, if what Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod said is true and nothing ‘inappropriate’ or ‘problematic’ happened, then why doesn’t the White House disclose what actually happened, who was involved and what was promised. Either Sestak is lying, which is the only way nothing ‘inappropriate’ happened or the White House is and Robert Gibbs is lying.”

The DOJ’s letter, dated May 21, comes three weeks after Issa’s initial inquiry, and two weeks after Attorney General Eric Holder claimed in a May 16 hearing that he had already responded to Issa’s concerns.

Wild Thing's comment.........

The stonewalling has begun.

It is a a FELONY.

18 USC 211 - Acceptance or solicitation to obtain appointive public office Whoever solicits or receives, either as a political contribution, or for personal emolument, any money or thing of value, in consideration of the promise of support or use of influence in obtaining for any person any appointive office or place under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both. Whoever solicits or receives any thing of value in consideration of aiding a person to obtain employment under the United States either by referring his name to an executive department or agency of the United States or by requiring the payment of a fee because such person has secured such employment shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both. This section shall not apply to such services rendered by an employment agency pursuant to the written request of an executive department or agency of the United States.

Sestak case deepens--did White House commit a felony by offering a job to Sestak?

In explaining the law on Fox Business Network's 'Happy Hour' program, Judge Andrew Napolitano stated,

Well the ramifications are potentially enormous. I mean to offer someone something of value in order to affect their official behavior as a member of Congress is a felony. We call it a bribe. To offer someone something of value to affect the outcome of an election is a felony. Each of those carries five years with them. The government has an affirmative obligation to investigate this.And Congressman Sestak who is a decent guy, we've all interviewed him. He sent you handwritten thank you notes after he was on your show, whether he agrees with you or not. Congressman Sestak has an obligation to tell the truth. Who offered him a job? What was the quid pro quo and what was the job? If he doesn't say that voluntarily a federal prosecutor should bring him before a grand jury and the grand jurors will inquire of his knowledge as we like to say.

It's time for Sestak to do more than admit the offer was made, he must now name names.

DESPICABLE Obama To Be No Show For Wreath Laying Ceremony at Arlington on Monday


Obama To Be A No Show At Memorial Day Ceremony

Obama will be on vacation in Chicago this Memorial Day, instead of presiding over Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington. This may be the first time since the Civil War that a president will not pay respect to the veterans passed.


President Barack Obama plans to spend a long holiday weekend in Chicago.
The White House says Obama and his family will travel to their hometown on Thursday and stay through the weekend. It will be their first trip back home since a visit for Valentine’s Day weekend in February 2009.
On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.
In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington

Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy.

Update: Obama will alter vacation plans slightly and travel to the Gulf on Friday in a desperate attempt to “plug the damn hole” in his approval ratings.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Obama has limitless contempt for America and those who have died to establish and defend it. This is merely one more opportunity for him to display that contempt.

This is the most disgraceful action by Mr. Obama yet. A huge slap at America. Absolutely disgusting. Barack Hussein Obama is a man that has no loyalty to or understanding of America and the esteem our people have for our military and, especially, fallen soldiers. He is making it clear to even the apathetic among us that he is not worthy of the office he holds.

It's already clear enough to many that his socialist/communist agenda will deliberately bring down the greatest country on earth. The November 2nd election will be or last chance to stop this man and his like-minded cohorts in congress, if we still have the right to vote by then.

The SOB American military hater demon muslim can GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!! How much are we supposed to be able to stand from this evil in office???!!!!!!!!! Every day, every minute I think I am going to burst!!!

Bush was there every Memorial Day with the exception of 2002 when he was at the American Cemetery in Normandy.


President George Bush, who was taking part in a Memorial Day ceremony at the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach in Normandy. That beach and area of France was the site of the fierce, prolonged World War II Allied assault to wrestle German control from France starting D-Day, June 6, 1944.

Bush, in Europe for meetings and a NATO summit, said during the ceremony “our wars have won for us every hour we live in freedom. Our wars have taken from us the men and women we honor today, and every hour of the lifetimes they had hoped to live.”

Sestak Bribery Scandal a “Tempest in a Teapot” a Obama and WH Cover Up!

Joe Sestak Repeatedly Dodges Questions on Job Offer Bribe

Rep. Joe Sestak on CNN with John King, where he continued his repeated dodging of questions regarding a job offer he says he received from the Obama White House to try and get him to drop his U.S. Senate bid against incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter. Sestak confirmed again that he did receive a job offer, but will not say from who or what the job was. Of course, the looming question is what did President Obama know about this job offer, and when did he know it?

The media seems to be starting to get active on this story. The question won't go away. At some point, no matter how hard he tries, Obama is going to get hit with a question about this matter and what he knew about it.


Jay Sekulow from the American Center for Law and Justice told Sean Hannity tonight that if the Obama Administration does not come clean on the Sestak bribery scandal, and come clean quickly, this “Tempest in a Teapot” is about to blow. And, it could blow back on the Obama Administration and senior officials very significantly.


Dick Morris: Sestak Bribery Scandal Is Impeachable Offense

“It is illegal to offer someone anything of importance or value in return for a vote, or running or not running for office.”

Dick Morris was on with Sean Hannity to discuss the Joe Sestak bribe scandal. Morris noted that if the Obama Administration offered Sestak a position in government in order to keep him from running for US Senator, this would be an impeachable offense

Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense'


If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there's someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime – and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.

"This scandal could be enormous," said Dick Morris, a former White house adviser to President Bill Clinton, on the Fox News Sean Hannity show last night. "It's Valerie Plame only 10 times bigger, because it's illegal and Joe Sestak is either lying or theWhite House committed a crime.

"Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel," he said. If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama's apppoval, "that is a high crime and misdemeanor."

"In other words, an impeachable offense?" Hannity asked.

The situation revolves around an oft-repeated statement by Rep. Sestak, D-Pa., that he had been offered a job by the Obama administration in exchange for a decision to drop out of a senatorial primary against longtime Obama supporter Sen. Arlen Specter.


Eric Holder ducked a series of questions Thursday about how the Justice Department has followed up on questions surrounding Rep. Joe Sestak’s (D-Pa.) claim that the White House offered him a high-ranking government job in exchange for dropping out of a contested Democratic Senate primary.


Rep. Darrell Issa - This Could Be An Impeachable Offence

California Rep. Darrell Issa on Fox News yesterday where he talked about the issue of the job offer made to Rep. Joe Sestak by someone at the White House to try and get him to drop his bid for the U.S. Senate against Sen. Arlen Specter.

Issa has requested a “Special Prosecutor” be appointed to look into the matter, which has been rejected by Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder has said the matter “could be investigated,” but no such decision has been made.

Issa said it is not for the White House to decide what is “inappropriate,” referring to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ assertion that “nothing inappropriate” took place.

“This problem is not going away” for the White House, Issa said. Issa went on to also say, “There is a cover-up going on at the White House,” and the offer of a job “could be impeachable.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Needless to say a Republican would have faced the GOP firing squad already.

Greta ask Karl Rove about it, the other day. Rove said that it was very illegal.

Its clear that somebody is lying here, its either Sestak or the regime. Neither party is above the idea of promoting a falsehood for their own benefit. The idea that Sestak might have made this up is certainly a possibility.

But listening to Gibbs, I’d say its more likely that Sestak is telling the truth and just inadvertantly let the cat out of the bag.

Dictator Obama Met With Senate Republicans and Told Them To Pass More Radical Legislation

Krauthammer Offers to Write Obama an Rx for Valium



Barack Obama told Senate Republicans today to work with democrats to pass more radical leftist legislation.

President Barack Obama battled with Senate Republicans in a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday, facing tough criticism from his GOP adversaries — including John McCain — on issues ranging from health care to border security.

Senators and other sources inside the meeting described the gathering as “testy” and “direct” — and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) accused Obama of acting two-faced by asking for GOP support on regulatory reform only to push forward with a bill supported mainly by Democrats. Others felt that the meeting may have made already tense relations between the two parties even worse.

“The more he talked, the more he got upset,” Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) said. “He needs to take a valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans and just calm down, and don’t take anything so seriously. If you disagree with someone, it doesn’t mean you’re attacking their motives — and he takes it that way and tends then to lecture and then gets upset.”

The White House said that Obama made a plea for bipartisanship on some of the country’s most pressing issues — and he urged Republicans to stand up to their base and compromise with the Democratic Party.

Bill Burton, a White House spokesman who attended the meeting, later told reporters that the meeting was “civil in tone” and not as contentious as Republicans have made it out to be. But he said Obama directly challenged the GOP to work in a bipartisan fashion on immigration and energy – or risk seeing those two major issues fall apart this year.

Inside the lunch meeting, Obama squared off with his old rival McCain (R-Ariz.) over border security, sources said. Sources described Obama’s conversation with McCain as rather direct.

McCain said he told Obama: “We need to secure the borders first. He didn’t agree.” A McCain spokeswoman said their exchange was “frank but respectful.”

Shortly after the meeting, Obama called for 1,200 National Guard troops to be deployed to the border, and McCain quickly one-upped the president, asking for 6,000.

One Republican senator told reporters after Obama left, “He’s pretty thin-skinned.”

Addressing McCain and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), Obama said his administration has done more to secure the border than others have.

"But, what he said to McCain and Kyl is that 'solving the problem is not going to just be a function of border security,'" according to a senior White House official. "That was the fault line of the discussion with the president urging Republicans to join him in supporting comprehensive immigration reform which many of them had supported before."

During the meeting, which lasted roughly an hour and 20 minutes, sources said Corker broached the issue of Wall Street reform, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) spoke about the administration's response to the BP oil spill, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) discussed health care reform and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) spoke on a variety of issues.

In one of the most heated exchanges of the lunch, Corker accused Obama of acting “duplicitous” in his calls for bipartisanship, saying that he was trying to cut a deal on regulatory reform only to see the rug pulled out from underneath him. At one point, Corker said Obama was using lunch with Republicans as a “prop.”

"I told him I thought there was a degree of audacity in him even showing up today after what had happened with financial regulation," Corker told reporters after Republicans met with Obama.

Memo to GOP Here is the roadmap, push his buttons and push them hard. He’ll self destruct. Obama needs to be pushed into a full meltdown in a public setting with a video record. He is mentally unstable and it is showing more and more everyday. If the GOP had any backbone they would be ready to egg him on at every opportunity. The guy would lose it given half a chance.

Mexico Issues Orders To OUR National Guard

I thought this photo was interesting. It is Texas in 1926, guarding the border.

Mexico Issues Orders To OUR National Guard

The Mexican government has responded to the news that Obama is sending National Guard troops to the border by issuing orders to OUR troops.

This is from their official statement:


May 25th, 2010

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.
Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.
Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.
As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.

(FOX News ......Major Garrett)

WH says Nat Guard will provide “intelligence; surveillance & reconnaissance support; immediate support to counternarcotics enforcement.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

So their job, according to Mexico, is to basically act as customs agents, but not to verify the nationality of people crossing over the border?

And Obama will have our troops giving well as milk and cookies, maps, ACLU business cards, and Democrat Party voter registration cards to the newcomers.

Arizona School District's Radical Mexican-American Studies Program Exposed



Arizona School District's Radical Mexican-American Studies Program Exposed

FOX News

A transcript from "Hannity," May 24, 2010. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Arizona's new immigration law isn't the only law that has triggered protests in that state. Another bill recently signed by Governor Jan Brewer prohibits schools from teaching certain ethics study courses.

Now the measure bans any class that promotes the over throw of the U.S. government or promotes the resentment of a certain race. It also prohibits courses that are designed for students of one particular ethnic group.

But one school district in Tucson, Arizona, is refusing to end its Mexican-American studies program claiming its curriculum does not violate the new law. However, a special investigation first reported on by ABC's KGUN-9 in Tucson is raising some serious questions about what students are being taught at the Tucson Unified School District.

Now one textbook used in the class is called "Chicano: The History of the Mexican-American Civil Rights Movement." Now the book begins by proclaiming that thanks to white Americans, quote, "Mexicans shared with blacks a debilitating burden of oppression."

Now the textbook details the rational behind the "Chicano" movement whose activists believed, quote, "The U.S. violently invaded Mexico, wrested from it what became the American southwest and then subjugated its inhabitants."

Now the book explains that activists saw themselves as, quote, "a conquered people, not an immigrant population." And in its final chapters "Chicano" talks about various walk-outs and protests that occurred in the '60s and '70s, describing in great detail the methods used by these activists.

And wouldn't you know it? KGUN's investigation revealed that some of the exact same images seen in this book have recently been replicated by Tucson area students and residents.

Now take a look at the side by side comparisons courtesy of KGUN-9. Now on the left, you see an image of a walk-out from the actual textbook. On the right is an image from a recent walk-out in Tucson.

Now next on the screen, on the left you see activists pictured wearing brown berets during a protest. And on the right, a recent photo shows community members wearing those very same uniforms.

And finally, fist-pumping during protests was a trademark of the "Chicano" movement. And as you can see, TUSD students have also mimicked that behavior of late.

So is this class responsible for radicalizing students? And does it violate the new Arizona law?

Joining me now is the man who wrote the legislation. He is the Arizona state superintendent of public instruction, Tom Horne.

Tom, welcome to "Hannity."


HANNITY: What's — very simple. It's HB 2281 that bans classes that promote the overthrow of the United States government, resentment toward race of a class of people.

Help me out here. Why are we even on the program debating this? How widespread is this?

HORNE: Well — no, it's only in the Tucson Unified School District and possibly a district south of Tucson called Sunnyside. It's not elsewhere in our state. It came to my attention in 2007. They're dividing the students up by race. They have Raza studies for the Latino kids — Raza means race in Spanish —African-American studies for the African-American kids, Asian studies for the Asian kids, Indian studies for the Native American kids.

It's just like the old south. And I believe that what's important — I believe what is important American value. What's important about people is what do you know, what can you do, what's your character. Not what race do you happen to been born into.

And what the American schools have done is take students from different backgrounds and bring them together and teach them to treat each other as individuals. But in Tucson they're doing the opposite. They're dividing them up, teaching each group only about its own background, and in Raza studies, particularly, it's an extremely radical agenda, anti-capitalist, anti-free enterprise, separatists. They say that we should give back to Mexico the states that we took from Mexico in 1848 including Arizona, California —


HANNITY: Now let me add —

HORNE: Go ahead.

HANNITY: Specifically ask about that, because they say in the borders that we have are artificial and that the southwest United States should be taken back by Mexico. Explain —

HORNE: Right.

HANNITY: That they're actually teaching that to the kids in the class?

HORNE: Yes, they call it Aztlan is the area that they say is — these states that I've mentioned — Arizona, California, New Mexico and some other states — that are really northern Mexico that was conquered by the United States and they should be given back.

They are teaching them that there's a white imperialist racist power structure that's out to oppress them. One of their books is called "The Pedagogy of the Oppressed," which is written by Paulo Freire who's a well-known Brazilian Marxist; Marxist all over the footnotes in that book.

And I believe that these kids' parents and grandparents came to this country, most of them legally, because this is the land of opportunity.


HORNE: And they trust their kids to our schools. And we should teach this is the land of opportunity and if you work hard you can achieve what you want, not teach them that they're oppressed.

HANNITY: All right. You're pointing out this is anti-American, anti-capitalist, and there's also been threats, as I understand it, against you and your life. There was I guess one particular protest, "Horne, Horne, Horne, we wish were you never born." And they had a skit where they actually killed you?

HORNE: Yes, yes. That demonstrated I think the intellectual level of what they are teaching and the ugly emotions that they're teaching the kids. And the problem for the students is that when they grow up it's a dysfunctional education because they're teaching them not to deal with reasonable disagreements reasonably. But they're teaching them to be rude, to get in people's faces.

And if they act that way as adults they will not be successful adults. So the people that this course is really hurting are the students who are being given a dysfunctional education.

HANNITY: I would agree. In the end, does this become law? Because this doesn't become official law until what? At the end of December, correct?

HORNE: December 31st. Yes. December 31st, and then we will state that they're in violation. And if they don't come into compliance, which they say they won't, we can withhold 10 percent of their funds then they can appeal to an administrative law judge.

I'm running for attorney general because I served eight years as superintendent of school, so hopefully, I will, as the attorney general, help the legal part, while my deputy, Margaret Dugan, who's my deputy running for superintendent of schools, will withhold the 10 percent of funds from them.


Wild Thing's comment........

I never knew about this before. Thank God Hannity is getting the word out and had Tom Horne on his show.

Rhode Island Democrat Wants Arizona-Like Law

Rhode Island Democrat Wants Arizona-Like Law

State Rep. Peter Palumbo pushing for immigration crackdown in his state

RI lawmaker files immigration bill that follows Arizona's law


State Rep. Peter Palumbo, D-District 16, Cranston, has filed a bill that largely copies a controversial Arizona law considered the toughest immigration legislation in the country.

Palumbo's bill, like the Arizona law, makes failure to carry alien registration cards a state crime, and requires police to question people "where reasonable suspicion exists" that the person is unlawfully in the United States.

The bill, H 8142, filed Tuesday, also targets people who hire illegal immigrants, or who knowingly transport them.

Much of Palumbo's bill is taken verbatim from the Arizona bill, SB 1070, which was signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer last month, over President Obama's objections.

Palumbo could not be reached for comment Wednesday morning.

Brewer's signing of the Arizona law set off protests around the country, and prompted the filing of a number of constitutional challenges and lawsuits, and attempts to boycott Arizona businesses.

The latest challenge, a federal class-action suit, was filed Monday by the American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights organizations.

Steven Brown, executive director of the Rhode Island affiliate of the ACLU, called Palumbo's bill "nothing less than a deliberate recipe for increased racial profiling in the state. It purports to give police this magical bloodhound quality of being able to sniff out any individual who is in the country illegally. How a police officer otherwise is able to adopt this reasonable suspicion that somebody is here illegally is beyond me."

Brown added, "I don't think there's going to be a lot of support for this. I think Rhode Islanders on the whole are much more cognizant of the incredibly divisive and mean-spirited nature of a bill like this."

Terry Gorman, head of Rhode Islanders for Immigration Law Enforcement (RIILE), said he and his organization plan to support Palumbo's effort.
"It's incredibly important that we have laws like the Arizona law if we're ever going to do anything about illegal immigration," Gorman said. "The situation is never going to be resolved unless measures are taken."


Wild Thing's comment........

We can thank Jan Brewer, the people in the AZ House and Senate who voted for the law plus citizens of AZ for this. Arizona is merely endorsing federal law, it’s common sense that all states should do the same.

It is absolutely imperative that several other states do this, and quickly. It destroys the Alinsky strategy of isolating your enemy. You can’t boycott 20 states.

Joe Biden: Brussels Has Legitimate Claim to Capital of the Free World

Joe Biden praised Brussels today for being the “capital of the free world.”

Joe Biden addressed the European Parliament in Brussels in which he encouraged the EU to support Washington’s global agenda and approach to threats such as climate change and terrorism.

The Vice President spoke of how the United States and Europe share a partnership. He said Europe continues to be the United States ‘most important ally’ and trading partner, and rehashed the U.S. role in helping rebuild Europe after World War II.

However, during the speech, Biden made quite the head-turning statement in praising Europe.

“As you probably know, some American politicians and American journalists refer to Washington, DC as the “capital of the free world.” But it seems to me that this great city, which boasts 1,000 years of history and which serves as the capital of Belgium, the home of the European Union, and the headquarters for NATO, this city has its own legitimate claim to that title.”


Wild Thing's comment........

First Obama and his administration deny American exceptionalism and make apologies for us at every turn and now THIS from Biden.

I NEVER thought I’d live to see the day that people sitting in our highest offices would be talking down the US and talking up everyone else!!!!

Obama and Biden seem to be in a competition to determine who can put down and insult America the furthest.

The Next Bailout: $165B for Unions

The Next Bailout: $165B for Unions

FOX Business

Taxpayers could be on the hook for another $165 billion if a bill to bail out private union pension funds makes it through Congress.

Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) wants taxpayers to fork over $165 billion to bailout the troubled union pension funds.

A Democratic senator is introducing legislation for a bailout of troubled union pension funds. If passed, the bill could put another $165 billion in liabilities on the shoulders of American taxpayers.

The bill, which would put the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation behind struggling pensions for union workers, is being introduced by Senator Bob Casey, (D-Pa.), who says it will save jobs and help people.

As FOX Business Network’s Gerri Willis reported Monday, these pensions are in bad shape; as of 2006, well before the market dropped and recession began, only 6% of these funds were doing well.

Although right now taxpayers could possibly be on the hook for $165 billion, the liability could essentially be unlimited because these pensions have to be paid out until the workers die.


Wild Thing's comment.......

For God's sake where does it stop. God save America from these communists.

So the unions raid the pensions and use the money to get politicians elected , then the politicians raid the treasury to bail out the unions, affectively stealing from the taxpayers. Some scam that is sheesh!

Look at this:

Unions to spend $100M in 2010 campaign to save Dem majorities

At least two influential unions will spend close to $100 million on the 2010 election, with most of those funds going to protect incumbents.
Union officials told The Hill they plan to help endangered members — particularly freshmen — who made politically difficult votes in a year during which an anti-incumbent mood has filled the country.
And the number will be even higher since the AFL-CIO declined to give its figures.
While the labor movement has displayed an aggressive tack in Democratic primaries, including supporting some challengers over incumbents, it remains concerned about the party retaining its congressional majorities.

A Senate Majority Comes Closer by Dick Morris

A Senate Majority Comes Closer

by Dick Morris

The tenth seat -- the one that will give the Republicans control of the Senate -- is coming closer and closer. Three key developments:

1. Connecticut

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has been caught repeatedly fabricating a record of service in Vietnam. While he constantly claims to have fought, the fact is that he never went near the place. His candidacy is falling apart as a result.

While Linda McMahon, wife Vince, the owner of the World Wrestling Federation, won the Republican convention, her primary opponent Rob Simmons is much more likely to beat Blumenthal.

Simmons, who won two Bronze Star medals during his eighteen months in Vietnam, worked for the CIA after his service as an Operations Officer in some of the key global trouble spots. He went on to serve as a staffer on the Intelligence Committee in Congress and then to serve for six years in the House. He can win this seat.

2. Wisconsin

Ron Johnson -- an independent, successful businessman with great access to funding -- won the Republican nomination to run against Russ Feingold. A true conservative, Ron has an excellent chance to win. Feingold, who is way too liberal even for Wisconsin, is under 50% in the polls and Johnson should move up quickly. This race could be the key to getting 51 seats.

3. Washington

Dino Rossi, the strongest candidate against Senator Patty Murray may enter the race soon. He currently runs even with Murray in the polls. Stay tuned.

So those are our best shots for a tenth seat. Here's how the other nine play out:

Delaware = No problem.

North Dakota = No problem.

Indiana = Should be no problem. Coats is far ahead of Ellsworth.

Illinois = Mark Kirk ahead thanks to scandal engulfing the Democratic candidate.

Arkansas = Blanche Lincoln will probably lose her runoff and Republican Congressman John Bozeman should defeat Lt. Gov John Halter.

Nevada = Harry Reid remains behind his opponents.

Pennsylvania = Joe Sestak will not be harder to beat than Specter was (conventional wisdom says he will be). He is waaaaayyy to liberal and Pat Toomey should beat him.

Colorado = Former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton is ahead of the appointed incumbent Michael Bennet, but both face tough primaries. We should win the seat.

California = A virtual tie between Barbara Boxer and her likely GOP opponent. With Boxer far under 50%, we should win this seat.

But focus on Connecticut, Wisconsin, and Washington State. Nine seats do us no good.

Remember, you build a ten story building from the top down. Don't you?


Wild Thing's comment........

Interesting break down of some of the States and who is running. I wonder how it will be in California. I would love to see Boxer out for good,.

Freedom's Color Blind

From Joe Dan Media : "Eatin Liberals For Breakfast "

About the video and song from Joe Dan.

Too many racial arsonists like Sharpton, Jackson & La Raza scream 'racism' as easily as they take a breath. I'm tired of the media outlets including (all-white) MSNBC calling me a racist.

So I wrote this little 'kiss my countryass' piece. Hope you like it.

God bless,
Joe Dan

Too bad Obama, Sharpton etc. do not get it, do not have a clue. Instead they push seperation and divide and sadly too many believe them.
Everytime we or anyone on our side takes a stand for our country, the left says we are racist. Like some kind of sick recording and it is a total lie. They can't debate or discuss so they go the race card on everything they do not like being said, they hate the truth.

WOW! Great ad! Alabama GOP Candidate for Congress Focuses Race on "Stopping President Obama from Destroying Our Nation"

Notice he's wearing an NRA hat at the end of the video.

Les Phillip, a black Republican hoping to unseat Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Parker Griffith. The ad sets up a contrast between Phillip and President Obama, who Phillip says "fell in with left-wing radicals," "played with terrorists," and "allowed his America-hating pastor to baptize his children.


About Les

Les Phillip is a conservative, Republican candidate for the Fifth Congressional District of Alabama. A native of Trinidad-Tobago and the son of immigrant parents, Phillip became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1978.

He is a former aviator for the U.S. Navy and an experienced operational manager. After leaving the Navy, Les entered the private sector where he has owned businesses and worked in sales, marketing, project management and operations.

His past professional experience includes Arrow Electronics in Huntsville, AL, where he successfully increased sales and implemented cost-saving processes for the company. At Vulcan Materials in Birmingham, Les implemented process improvements and strategic solutions for the company, resulting in more efficient operations. As a candidate for Congress, Les has a passion for defending the Constitution, protecting the freedom we hold dear and restoring America’s conservative values.


From Les:

A Message to the Fifth District

I will defend your rights – the rights guaranteed every American by the Constitution – with the same dedication, integrity and vigor with which I defended my country while serving as a pilot in the U.S. Navy.
I was privileged to serve along side men and women of the military who shared my belief that our assignment was to protect America at ALL cost. Whether facing turbulent seas or enemy fire, I was entrusted with multi-billion dollar equipment and vital security missions requiring focus, resolve and pinpoint precision. During battle, there is no room for error.
Here in Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District, we understand the vital role that government plays in providing “for the common defense.” But today’s representation is Washington is destroying all we have fought and died for. They were elected to serve as the people’s voice, to defend our rights and to create the opportunity for all American’s to enjoy security and prosperity. Instead, the power of elected office is being used for self-serving agendas, special interests and political gain. I say, “No more!”
If elected to Congress, I will vigorously defend freedom of enterprise, fight for your right to bear arms and promote a limited role of the Federal government in YOUR life. I will not stand back and allow the status quo of politics as usual to continue eroding our rights and destroying our country.
Regardless of circumstance or surrounding, I will defend you in Washington with the same zeal, passion and determination I had as a naval aviator. You WILL again have a voice! Thank you for your support.

Illegal Immigrants Won't Get Sanctuary in Costa Mesa, Calif ~ God bless Costa Mesa, Calif.

Greta Van Susteren On the Record.... Allan Mansoor, Mayor Costa Mesa, California .... illegal immigrants won't get sanctuary .

Costa Mesa officials vote for mayor’s resolution to toughen enforcement on illegal immigration.

Daily Pilot

Despite community members’ pleas against Mayor Allan Mansoor’s resolution to take a stance against illegal immigration, the City Council voted unanimously Tuesday in its favor.

The resolution declaring Costa Mesa a “Rule of Law City” follows an April news conference in which Mansoor called for stricter regulations to catch illegal immigrants living, working and driving in the city, and his promise to ask for the council’s support.

“The resolution states that Costa Mesa is not a sanctuary city and that it is in fact a rule of law city when it comes to support for upholding immigration laws,” Mansoor said before the meeting.

Mansoor, who says he supports legal immigration, wanted police in 2005 to enforce immigration laws. The proposal sparked citywide conflict and a federal lawsuit accusing him and the city of violating a resident’s 1st Amendment rights. The city prevailed.

At least five residents spoke against Mansoor’s resolution, and no one spoke in its favor.

“Americans across the political spectrum agree that our immigration system needs fixing,” said Keturah Kennedy, a Westside Costa Mesa resident. “It is unrealistic to deport the 12 million undocumented residents of our country. Workable solutions must include a realistic pathway to citizenship for those who are currently working, paying taxes and learning English. We need all the residents of Costa Mesa to have full economic and civic participation to help our city thrive.”

Councilwoman Wendy Leece credited reduced crime stats to the presence of an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent at the city’s jail and cited that as the foundation for her support of Mansoor’s resolution.

“That is just validating and restating the federal immigration laws that we support,” she said. Mansoor dismissed residents’ comments as “reckless,” and added that they do not reflect “what’s being introduced tonight.”

“The purpose is to set the tone for a strong policy, and, as I mentioned, in the future I do want to bring some things forward for discussion for possible future implementation,” Mansoor said before the meeting.

US Troops Afghanistan Ordered to Patrol With Their Weapons Unloaded

Fighting a War without Bullets?

Human Events

by Chris Carter


Commanders have ordered a U.S. military unit in Afghanistan to patrol with unloaded weapons, according to a source in Afghanistan.

American soldiers in at least one unit have been ordered to conduct patrols without a round chambered in their weapons, an anonymous source stationed at a forward operating base in Afghanistan said in an interview. The source was unsure where the order originated or how many other units were affected.

When a weapon has a loaded magazine, but the safety is on and no round is chambered, the military refers to this condition as “amber status.” Weapons on “red status” are ready to fire—they have a round in the chamber and the safety is off.

The source stated that he had been stationed at the base for only a month, but the amber weapons order was in place since before he arrived. A NATO spokesman could not confirm the information, stating that levels of force are classified.

“Our overall aim is to defeat the insurgency which means we must gain and then maintain the support of the Afghan population,” said Lieutenant Commander Iain Baxter, a spokesman for NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in a statement to HUMAN EVENTS. “This must be the objective of every action taken by ISAF service members, and it calls for responses that de-escalate situations where the use of deadly force may not be necessary. In doing this, leaders at all levels make enormous efforts to ensure that troops balance their own protection with the protection of the Afghan population.”
“The idea that any combat unit would conduct any operation, including patrolling and even manning a security post—in which direct action may or may not take place—and not having weapons loaded, borders on being criminally negligent in my opinion,” says Lt. Col. W. Thomas Smith Jr., a recognized expert on terrorism and military issues. “This is nothing more than infusing politically correct restrictions into already overly restrictive rules of engagement. And this PC nonsense is going to get people killed.”

According to Smith, "American soldiers are highly skilled in the use of 'loaded' weapons, and so should be trusted to operate with 'loaded' weapons. If someone overseeing decisions on ROE [rules of engagement] thinks not, then ratchet up training. But don't put a man on the street and force him to go through multiple prompts when a gunfight breaks out. Remember, the situation can go from quiet to kinetic in half the time it takes to breathe."

In an ambush situation, just how long does it take to engage a target when your weapon isn't already loaded?

“Too long,” states Sandy Daniel, military veteran and deputy director of the Victory Institute. “The first couple of seconds in an ambush are critical, and when that block of time is used to load a weapon instead of firing, you are losing the time you need to stay alive. Patrolling without a chambered round is suicide.”

Smith adds, "Let's not forget the catastrophic result of not having weapons loaded on Oct. 23, 1983, when a U.S. Marine sentry barely managed to load his weapon and get off one or two hasty, ineffective shots at the speeding bomb-ladened truck that crashed into the Battalion Landing Team headquarters in Beirut. The truck breached the building, the explosives were detonated, and 241 Americans perished in the largest—at that time—non-nuclear blast in history."

Based on discussions with veterans of previous conflicts spanning back to the Vietnam War, ordering troops to conduct patrols or to man a security post with weapons on amber status is actually quite common. In Vietnam, troops were typically ordered to patrol with weapons on amber, however the order was rarely followed or enforced. Troops operating at the Korean Demilitarized Zone, in Bosnia, and during the Gulf War had similar orders. In some cases, troops were instructed to remove magazines from the weapon completely, storing them in pouches. Worse yet, troops were only issued a handful of bullets in which to defend themselves in case of enemy contact.

The ROE our troops in Afghanistan follow, commonly known as the “Karzai 12,” are classified.But this :

1. When on the post, mobile or foot patrol, keep loaded magazine in weapon, bolt closed, weapon on safe, no round in the chamber.

2. Do not chamber a round unless told to do so by a commissioned officer unless you must act in immediate self-defense where deadly force is authorized.

Marines were ordered to know these rules—which they carried on them at all times—as well as they knew their name, rank, and Social Security number. As Smith points out, we can see just how ineffective these rules were, and how deadly they were to U.S. forces. Had our leaders allowed Marines to carry loaded weapons, perhaps the 241 Marines, sailors, and soldiers killed in the Beirut attack would still be alive today.

Even if this order did originate from a company commander, this travesty is still the responsibility of the leadership that handed down such restrictive rules of engagement. NATO commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal's emphasis on protecting noncombatants is such that commanders are willing to jeopardize their troops in such a manner as ordering them into battle with unloaded weapons.

Hopefully, our military won't experience another preventable mass casualty incident like the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing. But with our leaders repeating the failures of the past by not permitting our troops to carry loaded weapons, it seems we have become our own worst enemy.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Commanders have ordered a U.S. military unit in Afghanistan to patrol with unloaded weapons, according to a source in Afghanistan.

Forget learning the lessons of 9/11, we obviously haven't learned the lessons of the USS Cole yet, or the Marine Base, or so many other attacks on our military and Americans.

“Our overall aim is to defeat the insurgency which means we must gain and then maintain the support of the Afghan population,”

And the idea is to let them know we are walking around targets is really going to win their hearts and minds.

Here’s a news flash. You are never going to defeat the insurgency pussy footing around trying to win friends with the Afghan population. The enemy has one tactic, and that’s to terrify. The only way to stop them is to kill them dead.

Taliban Responds To Obama Wanting To Reach Out To Them and Bombs US Bases in Afghanistan

The assault on the Kandahar air field comes just days after two Taliban attacks on US and Nato forces in Afghanistan.

The group says it has now begun its “summer offensive” and will increasingly hit foreign troops.

Codenamed Al Fatah, or victory, the operation anticipates a planned summer offensive by coalition forces in Kandahar, aimed at driving the Taliban from their traditional heartland.


The Taliban launched yet another ground attack on a major Coalition military base in Afghanistan.

A Taliban force launched a coordinated attack today against Kandahar Airfield, the largest base in southern Afghanistan and a major hub for operations in the south. More than 10,000 Coalition soldiers and contractors are based at the airfield.

The attack began at about 8:00 p.m. local time when Taliban fighters moved close to the perimeter and fired mortars and rockets at the sprawling airbase. Three rockets landed inside the base; one struck a helicopter terminal and another a shopping center

The attack is the third major strike against the Coalition in six days, and the fourth attempt to overrun a Coalition and Afghan base in the country during the same time period. The largest assault targeted the airbase at Bagram in central Afghanistan, the largest Coalition base in the country.

On May 17, a team of three suicide bombers armed with assault rifles attacked a border police headquarters in Kandahar. The first suicide bomber detonated at the outer wall, opening a hole that allowed the two other bombers to enter the compound. Police killed the two other bombers during a gunfight that lasted nearly an hour.

On May 18, a suicide bomber rammed into a Coalition convoy in Kabul. Twelve civilians and two colonels, two lieutenant colonels, and two soldiers were killed in the attack.

On May 19, a Taliban assault team attempted to storm the US airbase in Bagram in Parwan province, but was beaten back by US forces defending the base. An estimated 30 to 40 Taliban fighters carried out the assault. During the attack, 16 Taliban fighters, including four suicide bombers, as well as a US military contractor were killed.


I posted last that Obama Wants to Reach Out to Hezbollah Terrorists

The Taliban responded this week with 3 attacks in 6 days, striking at the heart of the NATO mission in Afghanistan.

On Tuesday May 18th, a Taliban suicide bomber targeted a NATO convoy in Kabul killing 5 US troops and a Canadian soldier.

On Wednesday May 19th Taliban forces launched an early morning attack on Bagram Air Force Base killing a contractor and injuring 9 US troops.

On Saturday the Taliban launched a separate attack on Kandahar base.

As Obama extended his hand – The Taliban launched a rocket on Bagram.


On Tuesday… Deputy National Security Advisor John Brennan told an audience that the Obama Adminstration wants to reach out to the “moderate” elements of the Hezbolllah terror group.

On Friday… The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah inaugurated a “Jihadist Museum” in Milta, east of the port city of Sidon, for tourists. The jihadist tourist museum will highlight the achievements of its “resistance” in southern Lebanon against Israel.


Wild Thing's comment......

Obama is dangerous to our country, to our troops and people need to know the things mentioned above are happening. Most of the media is not covering this.

Wonder how many of those deaths are connected with the inability to act when needed. Obama is aiding and abetting the enemy with these ROEs. That should keep anyone with a conscience at the Pentagon awake at night.

God Bless our troops and keep safe while in harm's way from enemies, both foreign and domestic. Their courage and sacrifice is what keeps our nation.

Gov. Jindal Blasts Obama Inaction, Moves on Sand Booms

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says with oil pushing at least 12 miles into the state's marshes and two major pelican rookeries coated in crude, the state is working on a chain of sand berms to protect the coastline from the leaking crude oil. (May 23)

Gov. Jindal blasts Obama inaction, moves on sand booms

Jindal tired of waiting for approval, to build sand booms

H/T Michelle Malkin blog

This is leadership on the front lines, not just on the sidelines. Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal has been working non-stop over the past month to protect his state from the BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill — and from the bureaucratic delays in the Obama administration.

Click HERE to watch the full video of his latest press conference as Gov. Jindal explains what he is doing to contain the damage:

Gov. Jindal was critical of the amount of boom his state received to ward off the oil seeping toward the coastline. But his major gripe comes at the expense of the Army Corps of Engineers, who have yet to give the go-ahead for the building of sand booms to protect the Louisiana wetlands. He used photographic evidence of oil breaking through hard booms, soft booms and another layer of protection, before being finally being corralled by a sand boom built by the National Guard.

"It is so much better for us. We don't want oil on one inch of Louisiana's coastline, but we'd much rather fight this oil off of a hard coast, off of an island, off of an island, off of a sandy beach on our coastal islands, rather than having to fight it inside in these wetlands," Gov. Jindal said, making the case for sand booms.

The governor said he has been forced to protect Louisiana without the approval of the Army Corps of Engineers, which is weighing the ecological impact of the construction of more sand booms.

"We are not waiting for them. We are going to build it," Jindal said.
"We can either fight battle -- we can fight this oil -- on the Barrier Islands 15 to 20 miles off of our coast, or we can face it in thousands of miles of fragmented wetlands," Gov. Jindal said, clearing favoring the first option. "Every day we're not given approval on this emergency permit to create more of these sand booms is another day when that choice is made for us, as more and more miles of our shore are hit by oil."

The oil spill, which has lasted 33 days since the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, has yet to be stopped by British Petroleum at the source. The situation is dire for Gulf coast states.

"It is clear the resources needed to protect our coast are still not here," Gov. Jindal said. "Oil sits and waits for cleanup, and every day that it waits for cleanup more of our marsh dies."

At least one federal official is taking some responsibility:

The oil mass continues moving west, and as the toxic sludge begins to make landfall in Terrebonne, Capt. Edwin Stanton, who heads up the Coast Guard’s response, is taking blame.
“The governor is right. It’s too slow, and if it’s anybody’s fault, it’s mine, for not pushing (BP) hard enough perhaps,” Stanton said.“We did have a problem with getting boom down here to begin with, but there seems to be boom that is in the staging areas that needs to be put out.”

Then, in an exchange with a reporter, he went further.

Stanton: “It’s my job to direct this response in Louisiana.”
Reporter: “Why didn’t you do it?”
Stanton: “Well, the why — is that really important?”
Reporter: “Yes sir, we live here.”
Stanton: “Well, I guess I’m just slow and dumb.”


Louisiana Officials Threaten Action if Spill Response Proves Inadequate

Gov. Bobby Jindal recited a timeline of his requests to BP and the Coast Guard for containment boom, skimmers and other supplies, saying that the resources were still far from adequate weeks later.

Around 65 miles of Louisiana coastline had been “oiled,” he said, as local officials held aloft pictures of oil-coated pelicans and a porpoise.

Saying that promises of more supplies frequently fell through, Mr. Jindal said he was going to send members of the Louisiana National Guard and Wildlife and Fisheries agents to monitor the oil and even to locate boom and other response supplies, which he and other officials said were available but sitting unused.

Mr. Jindal also urged the Army Corps of Engineers to immediately approve a plan to build artificial barrier islands out of sand to hold back the oil, a plan widely praised by local parish officials but questioned by some experts. He said he would raise the issue with President Obama in a conference call on Monday.

In response to increasing criticism that the White House has not acted aggressively enough on the spill, the Obama administration is sending Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano into the region on Monday at the head of a bipartisan Congressional delegation.

ABC News Absolves Obama of Oil Spill Blame by Bashing Sarah Palin...from Newsbusters

ABC News on Sunday marvelously absolved President Obama of any blame concerning the Gulf oil spill by bashing former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

After "World News Sunday's" opening segment about the crisis and how local citizens are being impacted, anchor Dan Harris said, "As we reported, the President is turning up the heat on BP, but the President is also feeling some heat himself with many critics questioning the way the White House is handling this crisis."

He then asked senior Washington editor Rick Klein, "Is there any evidence to substantiate the claim that the White House has been somehow abdicating responsibility and allowing BP to pick up too much of the heavy-lifting in this crisis?"

Strangely, Klein's response involved Palin .



Wild Thing's comment........

Considering that Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama all went for McCain in 2008, it is clear Obama does not give a crap what happens to those states and their coastal industry. It also explains why Tennessee hasn’t gotten much help with their flooding.

Jindal is the only government official taking decisive action, and the obamanoids don't like it. They have instructed the media whorehouse to raise a blanket of silence against his creative and innovative steps, and the obaman EPA will do everything in its power to see that the environment suffers maximum damage.

If Bush was President they be crucifying him for doing nothing! Obama, again, gets a pass from the MSM!

Clear and Present Danger To US Obama Decides To Unilaterally Announce Secret U.S. Missile Tests, Satellite Launches

Obama decides to unilaterally announce secret U.S. missile tests, satellite launches

Los Angeles Times

And from FOX Nation

Obama has decided to pre-announce to the world once-secret American ballistic missile tests and satellite launches.

The Democratic administration’s goal is to show a friendlier face to other countries and to coax Russia to do the same.

It’s part of a confidence-boosting initiative launched, so to speak, last fall when Obama suddenly abandoned the U.S. missile-defense system in Eastern Europe that had exercised the Russians, though it was aimed at potential future missiles from Iran.

Obama hoped such a unilateral U.S. forfeiture would encourage Russia to put pressure on Iran to halt its nuclear weapons development. So far, no good on that.

Of course, the point of secret tests by any state in an insecure, suspicious world is to deny advance notice to potential enemies, making it more difficult if not impossible for them to gain intelligence by monitoring the tests themselves.

According to George Jahn of the Associated Press, a confidential U.S. note sent to 128 other countries two weeks ago said:

The United States … will provide pre-launch notification of commercial and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space launches as well as the majority of intercontinental ballistic and submarine-launched ballistic missile launches.

Security experts note that Obama left himself some wiggle room by using the phrase “majority of intercontinental and submarine-launched ballistic missile launches,” many of which depart from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the California coast.

Washington's hope is that Russia will resume doing the same.

The 129 countries involved are members of the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation. Four of the world's major nuclear-armed powers belong to the convention -- the U.S., Russia, France and Britain. Others such as China, North Korea, Pakistan and India do not belong and do not provide advance notice as the U.S. now will.

Another non-member is Iran, which continues ballistic missile testing and is believed to be developing nuclear weapons.

This Hague convention is separate from the new START nuclear arms treaty signed April 9 in Prague by Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. That agreement, now awaiting Senate ratification, would lower each side's nuclear arsenal from 2,200 warheads to 1,550.


Wild Thing's comment........

OMG What leader in their right mind would do this? Traitorous behaviour is one of his daily habits.

He going to coax the Russians to do the same? What is he smoking?

Note the tone of the article. It seems that even the LA Times is a little bothered by this action.They even point out the failure of obama's outreach to Iran. Maybe people are starting to notice.

Choose Your Battle Wisely....SB 1070 or HB 2281

From Jim here at Theodore's World....."Cochise County is in the far southeast corner of the state, bordering New Mexico and Mexico."


Choose Your Battle Wisely; SB 1070 or HB 2281

by Paul Johnson

"Because it has not been enforced, let's just use that as the reason to not enforce it." And so, the battle over Arizona's new immigration law wages on and stoops to new lows.

The nation, in an uproar over Mexico’s President being allowed to go unchallenged when denouncing the Arizona immigration law before the US Congress has left Liberals and Conservatives alike with a new understanding of whose side the Obama administration is actually on. It is not America’s side if you’re wondering.

Matt Liam, a Cochise County resident and until now, devout Liberal and Obama supporter was clearly disappointed. “I have had it with the president! How can a true American allow his own country and his own laws be denounced without challenge. No less by a president that has tougher immigration enforcement laws than our own. I am embarrassed that I have wasted a vote on this man who is incrementally destroying a great nation. His lies were one thing, but to not defend your own country is too much. He set out to destroy the Tea Party through his lies. An elected official stated he was called the N word when setting forth to vote on health care reform. Fifteen videos and sound clips from the location and time it was said to have happened failed to produce even a single profanity, let alone the N word. That never made it to the mainstream media though, because the liberal media machine buried it. Of course they kept the false accusations in circulation. Then on top of that, you have the $100,000 contribution to the United Negro College Fund if anyone could prove this actually happened that has gone unclaimed. And of course, no mention of that either. The lies, the deceit, the misleading information from this man are all tolerated because people have become so emotionally attached that they cannot; excuse me, refuse to see what is happening. The next thing you know he his turning directly on his own nation and his followers do the only thing they know how to do; follow. He is not a Liberal, he is at best a Leninist Marxist and his followers are too undereducated to understand the danger he represents. This was the straw the broke the camel’s back in my support of this president.”

Little did Matt realize things are getting worse by the minute.

“I don’t think the Arizona law, or laws like it are the answer,” said John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Morton feels the solution lies in a comprehensive federal approach. He is correct in that assertion that much is hard to argue, but the federal government is doing everything but a comprehensive approach. In fact, ICE has the right to refuse to detain and deport illegal immigrants even when the referrals are from within ICE.

"ICE has the legal discretion to accept or not to accept persons delivered to it by non-federal personnel," Napolitano said. "It also has the discretion to deport or not to deport persons delivered to it by any government agents, even its own."

This is to directly state that referrals from Arizona can and most likely will be refused. This coming from the former Arizona Governor and now Secretary of DHS. Because they do not like the law, they are simply now justifying their right to not enforce federal through an already broken system within ICE. And we wonder why we have a problem.

Complicating the matter is the Obama administration which has been contacting every ICE agency and informing them they have no intention in cooperating with the Arizona law.

In essence, the Obama administration is saying, “we have ignored the problem and so should the states.” This sentiment of ignoring the problem because it has already existed is echoed by supporters of the administration and those opposed to the legislation.

“Enforcing this law is like coralling [corralling] a lot of horses in a fenced area and forgetting to close the front gate! AMERICANS ARE AT FAULT!!!! Our children's appetite for drugs and small businesses need for inexpensive labor fuels this exodus!!!! You can build the biggest wall and they will build a larger ladder to scale it.” John Malon, a respondent to a recent article on the topic.

The ideology is that if it is broken, don’t attempt to fix it. The resistance to the Arizona law is taking increasingly lower forms from apathetic perspectives of the problem to unconstitutional interstate commerce violations, to claims of racism that the bill itself speaks directly against – all directed at insisting nothing being done in this case is better than upholding federal law. As the debates deteriorate, worse is actually happening in Arizona.

HB 2281, a travesty of Arizona legislation is going virtually unnoticed in comparison to SB 1070. Governor Jan Brewer, through these debates over immigration enforcement surges ahead in polls. This is due to the fact that more immigration enforcement debates wage, the further off topic they become which only proves her to be the right woman for the job. The whole time this is happening, a quick look at HB 2281 will make a voter think twice about her long term agendas against Mexicans and Mexican Americans. The best thing a Liberal can do is draw attention to HB 2281 and away from trying to justify not doing the right thing. Perhaps, within the confines of HB 2281 is a far more telling story as to the character and intent of Gov. Brewer. Oddly, Conservatives are more vocal about HB 2281 than are Liberals.

Amazing. Still, despite the obvious, people are talking about ignoring it. Did they not stand in protest of Bush for "ignoring the issues" and now they (liberals) have a chance to foster "change" on a program IMPLEMENTED ORIGINALLY BY LIBERALS and they (John) insist that ignoring it is the right thing to do. Are all liberals this hypocrisy laden? Amazing. First they want change, [and] then they refuse change because their messiah Obama says it is wrong - no independent thought, no values - even to their own Liberal programs. Read the bill, then decide... but that would require self thought and thus the Liberal is at a loss. Patti Sue, another respondent to a recent article on the topic.

In Arizona, the wrong fight for the wrong reasons is being fought while no one seems to want to fight the right fight for the right reasons because the Obama administration has not told them to do so. One would think that if the Obama administration were so concerned about civil rights violations within state’s legislative efforts, they would focus on the latter, not the former.

Interesting and realy good article about this.

"Matt Liam, a Cochise County resident and until now, devout Liberal and Obama supporter was clearly disappointed. “I have had it with the president! How can a true American allow his own country and his own laws be denounced without challenge."

Let's hope that more and more democrats that voted for Obama are paying attention This is out and out breaking our law and rubbing it in the faces of every American.....and worse yet done by a President.

.... Thank you Jim for sending this to me.

Harlem 'trial' Finds Obama 'guilty'



Harlem 'trial' finds Obama 'guilty'

Pastor says incriminating information to be given to 'authorities'


NEW YORK – The controversial Harlem pastor who led a days-long "trial" of President Obama says the resulting "guilty" verdict and corroborating evidence will now be turned over to appropriate authorities, congressional and otherwise.

The event was held at Atlah World Missionary Church over the past few days, and its pastor, James Manning, claimed it to be the first "legal verdict" against Obama since he took office.

Focusing on allegations regarding Obama's status as a "natural born citizen" of the United States as well as the allegedly illegal "award" of a diploma from Columbia University, Manning insists new legal ground was broken.

The activist pastor says that under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, citizens can legally hold a trial and arrive at a verdict, with the results turned over to appropriate government bodies for enforcement.

Manning claims the fact that the Secret Service, charged with protecting the president and investigating threats, allowed the "trial" to take place constitutes evidence it was legitimate.

"If the trial did not have legal standing, then why did the federal or city authorities not intervene to halt [the proceeding]?" he said. "We did not hide the trial, in fact we did our best to promote it. So if the authorities had any problems why did they not act?"

Not only was there no government interference during or after the trial, Manning boasts the NYPD had officers in the neighborhood to protect the church when the trial was under way.

Coincidentally, Obama was less than 4 miles away at a Democratic Party fundraiser in mid-town Manhattan the night before the 5-day trial began May 14.

Just four blocks from the church that hosted the Obama trial stands the Harlem office of former President Bill Clinton.

Ironically, the conservative Manning heaped praise on the 42nd president: "He was (and still is) a friend of the Harlem community. He and Hillary did a lot of good things here and for that we thank them."
Now that the Obama trial is over, Manning said, he will pass on the verdict and the evidence presented to the appropriate congressional authorities for their own "review."
"Just like a civilian who witnessed a crime, we will report our findings to Congress. ... Let's see what they do," he said.

Regarding Manning's allegation that Obama never actually attended Columbia, the New York times blogged mockingly:

"When we asked a Columbia spokesman whether the president did in fact attend the school, he replied, 'We’re not commenting on the Reverend Manning or the trial.' Denial or confirmation? You decide."
Manning, undeterred, says, "The ball is their (Congress') court. The verdict is in, the trial is over.
"Of course they (Congress) will try and ignore it and hope I will go away. .. but anyone who knows me knows I will not go away."


Pastor Manning has a video of the news conference available on his website.

From what I understand, he is now going to try and get congress to act upon the evidence brought forth from the trial. I believe they are still working on the transcripts of the trial.

Video of press conference here:


Army Schedules Formal Hearing Case Against Army Physician Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin Being Court-Martialled

Washington, D.C., May 12, 2010. The Army has now officially scheduled a formal hearing its case against Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin, who is being court-martialled by the Army for refusing to obey orders to deploy to Afghanistan because the President refuses --even in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary-- to prove his eligibility under the Constitution to hold office. It will proceed on June 11, 2010 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. at 9:00 a.m. in room134 of Building T-2.

All proceedings are open to the media and public. The court martial process, which begins with the military’s equivalent of a preliminary hearing in a civilian court, known as an “Article 32 Investigation” (referring to the provision found in that section in the Uniform Code of Military Justice) was just commenced when on May 3, 2010, LTC Lakin was notified that the Art. 32 hearing would take place May 6, 2010. Lakin’s civilian lawyer, Paul Rolf Jensen, immediately requested a continuance to June 11, 2010, and this request has been granted. Assisting Jensen in his defense of Lakin is a very experienced senior member of the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s corps.


Wild Thing's comment........

Will Congress and the courts act? If not then WHO WILL enforce the Constitution? This administration is now operating outside of the boundaries of the constitution and beyond the will of the people. This country is now treading on new ground. How the people act and react from this point on will determine the future of the United States of America and the destiny of the entire world. Obama is intent on taking this nation down

Manning, undeterred, says, "The ball is their (Congress') court. The verdict is in, the trial is over.
"Of course they (Congress) will try and ignore it and hope I will go away. .. but anyone who knows me knows I will not go away."

Manning probably understands that he is perpetrating an event that is not going anywhere. However, he is getting the word out to the inner city folks. And that is good news that warms my heart.

This is from a friend on Facebook that went to the trial.

This is his Facebook page..his name is Steve Cooper.

This is his blog/website

I attended the trial daily as a reporter for my site, The Conservative Monster. I am also a retired cop, so I know more about the law than many of these leftists that are attacking Manning.

Manning proved without a doubt that Obama never attended Columbia University. He did attend Harvard and Occidental, that is documented, but never Columbia. He is a fraud, but the fanatical left do not care, because they embrace his Marxist agenda.

Islam Cleric Al-Awlaki Warns of Future Attacks Against The United States

Islam Cleric Al-Awlaki Warns of Future Attacks Against The United States

Awlaki is warning of more terrorist attacks man caused disasters

Fugitive American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki warned of new attacks on Americans at home and abroad in a new video released over the weekend.

Anwar al-Awlaki, who is believed to be hiding in Yemen, accused U.S. forces of deliberately killing women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan. And he praised Maj. Nidal Hasan, the U.S. Army psychiatrist charged in the November massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, calling him "one of my students."

"Oh, America, if you transgress against us, we will transgress against you, and you keep killing our people, we will kill your people," Anwar al-Awlaki says in the video. "This is the image that we need to present. These American soldiers heading to Afghanistan and Iraq will be killed. We will kill them if we can, there in Fort Hood, or we will kill them in Afghanistan and Iraq."

U.S. authorities also have linked al-Awlaki to the failed attempt to blow up a U.S.-bound jetliner in December.

Wild Thing's comment........

I hope a drone finds him soon. Just curious, why hasn’t his citenzenship been revoked?

This below is from 2004 article in US News and World Report on Al-Aulaqi provided this curious tidbit about the “imam”:

The probe of the 9/11 attacks soon led Washington FBI agents back to San Diego, where they found that al-Awlaki had twice been busted for soliciting prostitutes in 1996 and 1997 but had avoided jail time. Al-Awlaki has previously described these charges as “bogus.” But FBI agents hoped al-Awlaki might cooperate with the 9/11 probe if they could nab him on similar charges in Virginia. FBI sources say agents observed the imam allegedly taking Washington-area prostitutes into Virginia and contemplated using a federal statute usually reserved for nabbing pimps who transport prostitutes across state lines. But in March 2002, al-Awlaki abruptly left the country for Yemen. “When he left town, it was as if the air went out of the balloon,” says one FBI source. Al-Awlaki briefly returned to the United States in October 2002, but federal authorities did not have sufficient cause to detain him, even though his name popped up on a terrorist “lookout” database. Now he’s back in the Middle East, where FBI agents are said to be keeping their eyes on him.

Republican Wins House Seat in Hawaii

Republican Charles Djou (duh-JOO') has won a Democratic-held House seat in Hawaii in the district where Barack Obama lived for awhile.

The special election is the latest triumph for the GOP as it looks to take back control of Congress.

Djou wins special election for Congress

For the first time in two decades, last night Hawaii has returned to the Republican column. U.S. Congressman-elect Charles Djou (R-HI) has won the special election to fill the vacancy caused the resignation of Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D).

Honolulu is one of the most Democratic districts in the nation..., and Obama received 70% of the vote in 2008. Djou won with 40% of the vote. Senate President Collen Hanabusa (D) received 31% and former Rep. Ed Case (D) took 28%.

Republican Charles Djou emerged victorious tonight in the special election to fill Hawaii’s vacancy in Congress, giving Hawaii it’s first GOP member of Congress in 20 years.

Djou won the special mail-in election with 39.5 percent of the vote in the first printout, released at 6 p.m.

The first printout represented nearly all of the 170,312 returned by voters in the district, which stretches from Waikiki and downtown to Mililani.

Democrat Colleen Hanabusa was second at 30.8 percent, with Democrat Ed Case third at 27.6 percent.

“This is a momentous day,” Djou told a jubilant crowd at state party headquarters. “We have sent a message to the United States Congress. We have sent a message to the ex-governors. We have sent a message to the national Democrats! We have sent a message to the machine.”
“We have told them that we will not stand idly by as our great nation is overburdened by too much taxes, too much debt and too much wasteful spending.”
"I congratulate Charles Djou for his victory and a successful campaign based on the widely-shared values of cutting spending, shrinking government and creating real, permanent American jobs," said National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (Texas).

Mexican Government In Sonora Is Running Threatening Ads In Arizona Newspapers

From Sheriff Joe’s twitter page:

“I want the public to call 1-800-4SONORA & demand to know the meaning of this ad that was in the AZ Republic

PHOENIX - An advertisement in the Friday edition of The Arizona Republic is raising some eyebrows.

The ad, sponsored by, shows a close up of a man with binoculars with the caption reading, "In Sonora, we are looking for people from Arizona."

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says people should call the Mexican Tourism offices at 1-800-4SONORA and ask what the ad means.

"Are you going to racial profile me in Mexico, am I going to jail for two years in Mexico for violating the immigration laws in Mexico, will I be safe in Mexico," Arpaio asked.


Wild Thing's comment........

Arizona is under assault.

There is also this in comparison :

Mexico's President Philip Calderon, who has insulted every American with his total disrespect for U.S. sovereignty and the rule of law, was treated to a formal and lavish Whitehouse dinner by the Obamas.By contrast, the Prime Minister of Israel, our closest friend and most dependable ally, was subjected to snubbs and insults during his visit to the Obama Whitehouse.Obama "walked out" of a meeting with PM Netanyahu to have his own dinner. Unlike the normal treatment a visiting head of state reiceves at the Whitehouse, there was no pomp and photo, and no dinner for visiting PM Netanyahu. Both Calderon and Obama have shown total disrespect for America's sovereignty and rule of law.

17 More States Planning Ariz. Illegal Crackdown

17 more states planning Ariz. illegal crackdown


In what is developing into a standoff between states and the federal government that could be bigger than gun control or even health care, 17 states have launched versions of Arizona's immigration law, even as federal officials say they may not bother to process illegal aliens caught by the states.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which has been trying to get officials to address the open southern border for years, warned the consequences could be dire.

"Over the last couple days, Obama and the chief of ICE have refused to honor their oaths of office," he said. "Their constitutional requirement is to enforce existing laws.
"They've told the American public to go eat cake," he said.

His organization is assembling the list of state efforts to emulate the Arizona law, which makes it illegal under state as well as federal law to be in the state without documentation.

"Seventeen states are now filing versions of Arizona's SB 1070, which is designed to help local police enforce America's existing immigration laws," ALIPAC said in a report today.

The report said numerous national and local polls indicate 60 to 81 percent of Americans support local police enforcing immigration laws.
"Our national network of activists have been working overtime trying to help the state of Arizona and the brave Arizonans who have passed this bill," he said. "Arizona no longer stands alone and we have now documented state lawmakers filing, or announcing they will file, versions of the Arizona bill in seventeen states! We will not stop until all states are protected from invasion as required by the U.S. Constitution."
Gheen said the states where some form of immigration crackdown is under development include Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Utah

President Obama several times has said he doesn't like the Arizona law. He's called it misguided and ordered a review by the Justice Department.

John Morton, who heads the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, said his agency might not process illegal aliens caught under state jurisdiction, the Chicago Tribune reported.

He insisted that only the federal government should respond to the problem.

"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton said.

One blogger expressed concern that "a senior Homeland Security official has openly declared that he won't be doing his job."
"Morton has sworn an oath to uphold the laws of the United States. He is not allowed to pick and choose which ones he likes and which he doesn't."

Gheen said the Arizona law and the plans it has spawned in other states is a victory for Americans. But he said those are just battles, and winning the war will require success in elections this fall.

A "comprehensive" solution to the problem will arrive when there are enough "hostile" members of Congress to tell the administration to uphold the existing immigration and border laws or the impeachments will start, he said.

"[We need to send] to Washington a hostile Congress that is going to encircle the executive branch and tell them to [follow the law] or we'll impeach all the way down to the speaker of the House," he said.

Gheen said he is alarmed over the pending release, expected sometime just before the election, of a movie called "Machete," which reportedly is the story of a Mexican uprising in the United States.

Gheen said the message in the movie reportedly is that Americans will either submit to the "rape" of their land or else.

He said he believes the project is intended to create turmoil just as the mid-term elections draw near.

"There is nothing as important right now as getting [people] fully involved with all the campaigns," he said.

ALIPAC already has helped to pass some form of immigration enforcement legislation in more than 30 states. And Gheen has developed a national reputation for defeating socially progressive plans to hand out licenses, in-state tuition and other taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens.

"It is incumbent upon our states to protect American lives, property, jobs, wages, security, and health, when the executive branch fails to honor its constitutional responsibility to do so by enforcing our existing border and immigration laws," he said.

The Arizona law, which strictly prohibits racial profiling, empowers local police to enforce immigration laws.

To monitor the growing number of states considering similar legislation, ALIPAC utilizes a public forum in which members can update the organization with news articles and other information from states where the push for an Arizona-like law is making headway.

In Arizona's neighboring state Utah, for example, Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, R-Orem, reportedly is drafting a bill that would similarly require immigrants to carry proof of status and require law enforcement officers to check for it.

"Utah is seen as state that welcomes illegal immigrants. We almost encourage it with driving privilege cards and in-state tuition for illegals," Sandstrom told the Salt Lake Tribune. "With Arizona making the first step in this direction, Utah needs to pass a similar law or we will see a huge influx of illegals. The real issue is just establishing a rule of law in our state."
Across the country in Maryland, Baltimore's WBAL-TV reported earlier that State Delegate Patrick McDonough, R-Baltimore County, is drafting a bill identical to Arizona's. He's also planning to poll his fellow legislators before the bill is filed.


This is a good write up about this as well..............

Free Passes From The PC In DC

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

During last year’s national elections, two members of the New Black Panthers---a black supremacist group---intimidated Philadelphia voters at a polling site. One was recorded on video wielding a billyclub. This week however, Eric Holder announced that the Justice Department had decided not to prosecute these criminals because ‘there was not enough evidence to prosecute them’. Free pass to armed criminals at polling places as long as they are not white males.

In Washington, DC hundreds of ranting chanting SEIU protesters invaded private property, surrounding the home of a Bank of America lawyer whose young son was the only one home at the time. The young boy hid in a closet and called police. The DC police response? None---they were ‘afraid of inciting some protesters to violence.’ Free pass to group protesters who trespass on private property because the police are afraid to enforce the law against the Administration’s partners in crime.

John Morton, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement, announced that he would not necessarily cooperate with Arizona law enforcement with respect to processing detained illegal immigrants. Free pass by the Obama administration to criminal violators of America’s illegal immigration laws. This, by the way, is a violation of law by Obama and ICE who are sworn by oath to enforce existing laws.

Mexican President Calderon, who cannot contain the widespread violence in his own country and whose own laws deal harshly with illegal immigrants into Mexico, drank Obama Kool-Aid and insulted Americans by criticizing Arizona’s new law dealing with illegal immigrants which he claims, like Obama, will result in discrimination. Further he suggested our government reinstate the automatic weapons band which expired in 2004 which he claims coincided with a sudden rise in drug cartel violence in Mexico.

Calderon says weapons confiscated in Mexico are mostly American-made, thus blaming America as the main source of firearms used by drug cartels to murder innocent citizens as well as Mexican government and police officials. Multiple free passes to Mr. Calderon, who it appears was coached by Mr. Obama as to what he should say to Congress and the American people---think amnesty and gun control (criminals win with both don’t they?).

Mr. Calderon’s government will jail any illegal immigrant for a minimum of two years---he gives no free passes. He misrepresents the source of firearms in Mexico and the fact that firearms are not the cause of violence—criminals are. The bigger picture is that Mr. Calderon has no business exporting his hypocrisy to America and is not welcome here.

On Sunrise Rock in the Mohave National Reserve in California, a new memorial cross which appeared in place of the stolen one honoring WWI vets was removed by the National Park Service which indicated that memorials cannot be erected in national parks. The original cross was stolen after ACLU lost their case before the Supreme Court in which they claimed it was a religious symbol on public land.

The Court ruled the cross could stay while the property was in transfer to a private owner. However, since it was stolen and since the property transfer has not been completed, the memorial for war dead cannot be replaced at this time. What about Arlington Cemetery where 300,000 dead are interred with numerous headstones consisting of crosses? What is the difference? Free pass to ACLU and those PC cowards who desecrated a symbol in honor of our military veterans. What is their next religious target? The headstone crosses in Arlington Cemetery?

Free passes are handed out almost daily by the PC police who have one goal---destruction of everything America stands for. The Constitution is being systematically trampled through deceit. That is a crime under the Constitution and should be prosecuted as such. Short of that unlikely occurrence, WE THE PEOPLE must give Obama and his radical anti-American ideologues a free pass in November---out of DC.


Wild Thing's comment.......

GOOD! Interesting how the number of states defying Obama on immigration reform is steadily approaching the number defying him on health care reform.

Those who refuse to uphold the law are breaking the law,Obama and the chief of ICE have refused to honor their oaths of office.

I wish Florida was on that list, but Crist would never allow it and sadly Rubio has been saying he is not in favor of the AZ. bill......very disspponiting. Rubio is so good on everything else except this. augh!!!

Nightmare In Chief Obama At West Point, Obama Presses for New World Order to Defeat Al Qaeda

Obama Delivers Commencement at West Point ....entire speech if you can stand to hear it. I prederred to read about it. LOL I just can't handle his BS and his voice and speech pattern. BARF Alert!


At West Point, Obama Presses for New World Order to Defeat Al Qaeda

FOX News

Obama on Saturday vowed to press for a new international order "that can resolve the challenges of our times" and help the United States defeat Al Qaeda and other threats to freedom.

Delivering the commencement speech at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Obama ticked off a list of lofty goals this new order could accomplish; from combating violent extremism to stopping the spread of nuclear weapons to stemming climate change and sustaining global growth.

While saying he was "clear-eyed about the shortfalls" of the international system that has led many critics of the United Nations and other institutions to abandon multilateralism, Obama said the United States would move ahead on a policy of "national renewal and global leadership."

"We have succeeded by steering those currents in the direction of liberty and justice -- so nations thrive by meeting their responsibilities, and face consequences when they don't," he said.

Saturday's comments suggest the Obama administration may be ready to more vigorously court the international community's support, and further distance itself from the "distinctly American internationalism" pursued by George W. Bush.

"There will be no simple moment of surrender to mark the journey's end -- no armistice or banner headline," he said. "Though we have had more success in eliminating Al Qaeda leaders in recent months than in recent years, they will continue to recruit, plot, and exploit our open society."
"So the threat will not go away soon, but let's be clear: Al Qaeda and its affiliates are small men on the wrong side of history," he said. "We need not give in to fear every time a terrorist tries to scare us."


The Washington Post

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- President Obama on Saturday offered a glimpse of a new national security doctrine that distances his administration from George W. Bush's policy of preemptive war, emphasizing global institutions and America's role in promoting democratic values.

In a commencement speech to the graduating class at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the president outlined his departure from what Bush had called a "distinctly American internationalism." Instead, Obama pledged to shape a new "international order" based on diplomacy and engagement.

Obama has spoken frequently about creating new alliances, and of attempts to repair the U.S. image abroad after nearly a decade in which Bush's approach was viewed with suspicion in many quarters.

Unlike Bush, who traveled to West Point in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to announce his American-centered approach to security, Obama on Saturday emphasized his belief in the power of those alliances.

"Yes, we are clear-eyed about the shortfalls of our international system. But America has not succeeded by stepping outside the currents of international cooperation," he said. "We have succeeded by steering those currents in the direction of liberty and justice -- so nations thrive by meeting their responsibilities, and face consequences when they don't."

In his speech -- the ninth wartime commencement in a row -- the commander in chief, who is leading two foreign wars, expressed his faith in cooperation to confront economic, military and environmental crises.

"The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times," he said in prepared remarks. "Countering violent extremism and insurgency; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear materials; combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth; helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick; preventing conflict and healing its wounds."

And yet, as he calls for global cooperation, Obama has intensified the U.S. war in Afghanistan. And his administration has repeatedly confronted the dangers of Islamic terrorism on U.S. soil, including unsuccessful attempts to down a Detroit-bound airliner and explode a car bomb in New York's Times Square.

To the men and women in the hall, many of whom are headed to Afghanistan because of the expansion of the war the president announced here six months ago, Obama pledged "the full support of a proud and grateful nation."

The president expressed confidence in the military's ability to succeed in Afghanistan. But he warned of a "tough fight" ahead as the United States helps the Afghan people rebuild civil institutions and a security system so they can battle the Taliban and other extremists on their own.

"We have brought hope to the Afghan people; now we must see that their country does not fall prey to our common enemies," Obama said. "There will be difficult days ahead. But we will adapt, we will persist, and I have no doubt that together with our Afghan and international partners, we will succeed in Afghanistan."

In Iraq, he said, the United States is "poised" to end its combat operations this summer, leaving behind "an Iraq that provides no safe haven to terrorists; a democratic Iraq that is sovereign, stable and self-reliant."

"You, and all who wear America's uniform, remain the cornerstone of our national defense and the anchor of global security," he said. "And through a period when too many of our institutions have acted irresponsibly, the American military has set a standard of service and sacrifice that is as great as any in this nation's history."

Civilians, he added, must answer the call of service as well, by securing America's economic future, educating its children and confronting the challenges of poverty and climate change. The country must always pursue what he called the "universal rights" rooted in the Constitution.

"We will promote these values above all by living them -- through our fidelity to the rule of law and our Constitution, even when it's hard; and through our commitment to forever pursue a more perfect union," he said.

Obama praised the cadets' pursuit of being "soldier-scholars" and lauded the records of academic excellence the Class of 2010 has set. He also noted that the class's top two graduates are women, reflecting, the "indispensable role" that women play in the modern military.

"Here, in the quiet of these hills, you have come together to prepare for the most difficult tests of our time," Obama said. "You signed up knowing your service would send you into harm's way, and did so long after the first drums of war were sounded. In you we see the commitment of our country, and timeless virtues that have served our nation well."


Wild Thing's comment........

"Countering violent extremism and insurgency..."

This phrase - "violent extremism" will be used against "political enemies" before it's over - and that's us. These people see Tea Party members as extreme - this liberal language in waaaaay to inclusive.

Obama is a four year trainwreck.

“Though we have had more success in eliminating al Qaeda leaders in recent months than in recent years,”

The liar! Obama is sickening — claims he has done more in the war on terror than Bush.

“The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times.....”

The audacity of this global midget to proselytize this internationalist gibberish to cadets is astounding considering the rate at which he cannot even comport to honor the most basic of pledges to protect the USA and its Constitution clearly laid forth in the oath of office.

Obama.....Joins Anti-Israel Group the Pro-Muslim 'Alliance of Civilizations'

US Joins Pro-Muslim 'Alliance of Civilizations'

Israel News

The Obama administration has announced the United States will join the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, another openly anti-Israel organization.

The group was created in 2006 to find ways to bridge the growing divide between Muslim and Western societies – a goal wholeheartedly embraced by President Barack Obama, who has redirected American foreign policy in pursuit of the same goal.

The White House announcement stated that the move is intended to realize Obama's “vision of active U.S. engagement with other nations and international organizations,” a goal sometimes pursued, noted National Review Online columnist Brett D. Schaefer last Thursday, “even when there is little or no chance that doing so will advance U.S. interests.”

The U.S. decision is also meant to support the Alliance goal of “improved understanding and cooperative relations among nations and peoples,” the statement said.

However, the Alliance has been anything but cooperative when it comes to improving understanding of issues relating to the security of Israel's and United States' civilians.

The group claimed in its first report in 2006 that global tensions were driven primarily by the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The same report referred to “a perception among Muslim societies of unjust aggression stemming from the West” in a discussion relating to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States by the international Al Qaeda terrorist group.

US Feared it Would be Anti-Israel - in 2006

At the time, the U.S. boycotted the group, expressing concerns that it would become a forum for bashing both Israel and the United States, in a manner similar to that of the U.N. Human Rights Council.

However, Obama administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said those concerns have since been addressed.

Since Obama took office a year ago, he has worked hard to reach out to the Islamic community of nations in a series of gestures that make it clear he is bending over backwards to strengthen ties with the Muslim world.

Since his speech from Cairo last June, Obama has reached out to Iran and Syria, restoring full diplomatic relations with Damascus and returning an ambassador to the Syrian capital.

The U.S. has also joined the anti-Israel U.N. Human Rights Commission. Both these moves are reversals of prior Bush administration decisions.

How and When ObamaCare Will Take Effect

Examiner Tampa Bay

The Heritage Foundation has compiled a timeline (pdf) of when ObamaCare's most disastrous attacks on the economy and the Constitution will take effect.

Not surprisingly, all the crowd-pleasing ploys come first, while all the hidden costs come later, when no one is paying attention and Republicans are in office (sounds familiar).

As I have noted, everything Democrats told us about ObamaCare has turned out to be outrageously false and it will actually make things far, far worse. As millions already face huge, blatantly unconstitutional fines, we are learning about rationing, extreme hidden costs and a stealth "public option."

CLICK below for the Heritage Foundation's complete breakdown of ObamaCare's endless unintended (or perhaps, deliberate) consequences.


Wild Thing's comment.....

The Heritage Foundation is so wonderful, they do a lot of work to make a list like the above link.

Obamacare is a total nightmare and I wish there was some way to stop it.

Top Official Says Feds May Not Process Illegals Referred From Arizona

Top Official Says Feds May Not Process Illegals Referred From Arizona

FOX News

A top Department of Homeland Security official reportedly said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

John Morton, assistant secretary of homeland security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, made the comment during a meeting on Wednesday with the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune, the newspaper reports.

"I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton told the newspaper

The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, he said, and not a patchwork of state laws.

The law, which criminalizes being in the state illegally and requires authorities to check suspects for immigration status, is not "good government," Morton said.

In response to Morton's comments, DHS officials said President Obama has ordered the Department of Justice to examine the civil rights and other implications of the law.

"That review will inform the government's actions going forward," DHS spokesman Matt Chandler told Fox News on Friday.

Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said ICE is not obligated to process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona authorities.

"ICE has the legal discretion to accept or not to accept persons delivered to it by non-federal personnel," Napolitano said. "It also has the discretion to deport or not to deport persons delivered to it by any government agents, even its own."

Morton, according to a biography posted on ICE's website, began his federal service in 1994 and has held numerous positions at the Department of Justice, including as a trial attorney and special assistant to the general counsel in the former Immigration and Naturalization Service and as counsel to the deputy attorney general.

Border apprehensions in Arizona, where roughly 500,000 illegal immigrants are estimated to be living, are up 6 percent since October, according to federal statistics. Roughly 6.5 million residents live in Arizona.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AL, said it appeared the Obama administration is "nullifying existing law" and suggested Morton may not be the right person for his post if he fails to enforce federal immigration law.

"If he feels he cannot enforce the law, he shouldn't have the job," Sessions told Fox News. "That makes him, in my view, not fulfilling the responsibilities of his office."

Sessions said the U.S. government has "systematically failed" to enforce federal immigration law and claimed Morton's statement is an indication that federal officials do not plan on working with Arizona authorities regarding its controversial law.

"They're telegraphing to every ICE agency in America that they really don't intend on cooperating with Arizona," Sessions said. "The federal government should step up and do it. It's their responsibility."


Charles Krauthammer: This Administration is Lawless

Charles Krauthammer called the Obama Administration “lawless” after a top official today announced that the administration will not process illegals referred by Arizona.

Charles Krauthammer on the Administration’s refusal to process illegal immigrants referred by Arizona:

I think its a perfect example of the arrogance and near lawlessness of this administration. Look, the Constitution requires that the federal government ensures that every state has republic form of government. Last time I checked Arizona does. There is no allegation that the immigration law in Arizona was passed in any way but legally… If the president doesn’t like he has an option. He can instruct the Department of Justice to go and have a judge strike it down. And, if likes he can get an injunction. In the meantime that will suspend it until its Constitutionality is ruled upon. In the meantime it’s as legal of law as any law in the land. For the executive (branch) to say that we’re going to ignore it or we’re going to un-enforce immigration in this state on account of this is lawless.


Wild Thing's comment........

This is insanity. Our federal government is declaring war on the citizens.

If this person is not going to do their job, they need to be fired...Also for this guys information ,there are already Federal laws..evidently he’s not obeying them either! This is remarkable. The meathead is flat out recommending not enforcing state and federal law.

We have a President who has sided with a foreign government(Mexico) and AGAINST the United States.
And this during a time of war.

Now ICE refuses to enforce Federal law, and Arizona state law.” Clearly John Morton is unfit to hold a position of public trust.

They need to start working up some laws that say that any federal agents interfering with Arizona laws will be prosecuted, including the freak obama.

Ugh...I’m all out of filthy names to call all of ‘em!

Pelosi, Biden and Other Democrats Wearing "Rubber Bracelets" in "Solidarity" Against Arizona Law

Pelosi, Biden and Other Democrats Wearing "Rubber Bracelets" in "Solidarity" Against Arizona Law

Megyn Kelly pointing out that both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Vice-President Joe Biden were wearing a "rubber bracelet" in "solidarity" against the State of Arizona's new anti-illegal immigration law when Mexican President Felipe Calderon spoke before a Joint Session of Congress!

In fact, Democrats in general have decided to wear the bracelet together to protest the new law.


Rep. Joe Baca, D-Rialto, right, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer show off Baca's protest wristbands, designed to show outrage over Arizona's new immigration status law.

DEMOCRAT Rep. Baca hopes baseball embraces his immigration-law protest bracelets

The Press Enterprise

Inland Rep. Joe Baca's campaign against Arizona's new anti-immigration law appears to be picking up steam.

As part of his general boycott of Arizona -- which includes his refusal to fly through Phoenix on his weekly trips to and from Washington -- Baca, D-Rialto, is distributing wristbands inspired by the Lance Armstrong LiveSTRONG craze.

Baca put in an order for 2,500 of his version, which will be red, yellow and blue -- the colors of Arizona's flag -- to be worn as a show of solidarity against the controversial law.

But while he's waiting for the official rubber wristbands to come in, Baca has distributed hundreds of stand-by models made from laminated colored paper.

He passed out hundreds in San Bernardino during a May 1 rally for immigration reform and against the law requiring police to check the immigration status of anyone they come across if there is a "reasonable suspicion" they are in the country illegally.

Beyond wearing the bracelets, Baca is asking people to avoid spending money in the state unless the law is repealed.

In Washington, Baca has gotten House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and most members of the Democratic leadership to wear them, as they did -- along with golfing legend Chi Chi Rodriguez -- at a recent fundraiser for Baca. Baca said his office is fielding calls from people inquiring how they can get one of the wristbands.

"Everyone wants them," Baca said. "They're going like hot potatoes."

Now he's setting his sights on professional baseball, hoping star players in the sport with increasing numbers of immigrants will wear them. To that end, Baca has written a letter to the Major League Baseball Player's Association asking them to join his cause.

This is the bracelet below: The jerk has a page at Facebook............!/WorkingJoeBaca


Wild Thing's comment........

This is truly disgusting but not surprising coming from this bunch. Traitors all from the very top. They are pushing the TREASON button more and more. If that is not treason, I don’t know what is. This government has forfeited all its legitimacy.

I am waiting for Pelosi to wear a Burqua.

Rep. Baca is an ass and should not only be fired but jailed for treason. He is promoting to go against the law of our land. OMG I can't beliieve we are seeing this out right stand against a law that has been existed for so many years.

Now we have a way of seeing who is against the law for immigration and pro illegals. The bracelet makes the traitors to our national security easy to spot.

We have hippies in power, the same F Ued up people that were hippies in the 60's trying to tell us what to do. Damn them all to hell!

Internet Freedom Challenged by Obama FCC

Internet Freedom Challenged by Obama FCC

By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown


House Minority Leader John Boehner recently accused the Obama Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of pursuing a "government takeover of the Internet."

Specifically, Boehner said that the FCC is engaging in an action that "amounts to a government takeover of the Internet, and yet another government takeover of a large portion of the private sector by the Obama administration."

The scheme amounts to an online “Fairness Doctrine” but it goes under another equally benign name: “network neutrality.”

Can you imagine what would happen if we were required under penalty of law to "balance" all the information on the Internet? Well that’s exactly what Barack Obama wants.

Recently, the effort suffered a major setback when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals put up a road block to the plan. Fox News’ Phil Kerpen reported: "That effort suffered a major setback when the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals emphatically smacked down the FCC’s regulatory proposals in Comcast v. FCC."

But Obama’s not going to let the court get in his way. He’s going to "go nuclear" and defy the courts.
Kerpen continued: "President Obama and his close friend and FCC chairman Julius Genachowski, however, refuse to back down. Instead they’re escalating to the regulatory equivalent of a nuclear attack on the free-market Internet: Chairman Genachowski will announce today his intention to reclassify broadband Internet as an old-fashioned telephone system as a pretext for pervasive regulatory control."

The key phrase in Kerpen’s report is "pretext for pervasive regulatory control." That means, once they have their foot in the door — once they have control — Obama and the FCC will go about instituting their own version of the "Fairness Doctrine" on the Internet.

According Contributing Editor Neil Stevens of

"If the FCC is allowed to put the Internet in the U.S. under those powers, then the Obama administration will have total power to tax internet users, regulate content on internet servers, and even institute price controls on internet services."

Of course, Obama and the FCC don’t really have the authority to do what they are setting out to do, but they don’t really care. The authority over regulation actually rests with Congress, but that means that Congress must act and exert its authority to stop this plan.

Obama’s FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski may be the man who will attempt to implement this plan to take over the internet but there’s more to this story. One of the shadow organizations that is joined-at-the-hip to Genachowski and is driving this plan is a Marxist-run organization ironically called Free Press.

FOX News’ Glenn Beck has already alerted his viewers to the plot saying: "Free Press has [had] three confirmed meetings now with Obama’s FCC to work on new Internet regulations…. The FCC chairman, not to be confused with the diversity ‘czar’ – this is the chairman of the FCC, Julius Genachowski – chose Free Press spokeswoman, Jen Howard, to be his press secretary."
In another venue, Beck said: "The FCC is being inundated by a special interest group ironically named Free Press, whose goal it is to limit America’s free press and freedom of speech. This special interest group also claims that it’s due to special interest groups that it has become necessary for them to intervene on our behalf."

Seton Motley, contributing editor of, has also addressed what is going on behind the scenes:

"The groundwork for government information totalitarianism – favored by people like Hugo Chavez-loving FCC ‘Diversity Czar’ Mark Lloyd and Marxist ‘media reform’-outfit Free Press founder Robert McChesney – is being laid in the (p)lan being crafted by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski."

And just in case you may still doubt the motives of the folks creating this plan, consider these four past statements by the man-behind-the-curtain, Free Press’ founder Robert McChesney:

1. "Any serious effort to reform the media system would have to necessarily be part of a revolutionary program to overthrow the capitalist system itself."

2. "There is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles."

3. "We need to do whatever we can to limit capitalist propaganda, regulate it, minimalize it and perhaps even eliminate it."

4. “At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”

Wow, no need to do more than quote their own statements.


Wild Thing's comment........

Sheesh! The never ending evil of this government continues to be perpetrated on us all. These people , Obama and his ilk can't take one breath without trying to think of something to mess with our country and our freedoms.

Net neutrality is the digital equivalent of global warming. For the left, it is all about moving their agenda forward while wrapping that message in an agenda that seems safe to the average person. Who can oppose battling global warming? Of course, global warming is a dubious claim as we now know, but it is the intentions that count - or that is what the Left wants you to think. But they really want to move forward their radical, anti-American agenda using global warming as a vehicle.

The same goes for net neutrality. Yes, we want the Internet to stay as it is now, and (apparantly) net neutrality is the term used to describe efforts to achieve this goal. But that isn't what the Left really wants here. What they want is total control of information flow on the Internet. They are losing viewers of their lousy TV programs, and no one wants to read their lousy newspapers or magazines. And they can't get a foothold in talk radio (Fairness Doctrine, anyone?). The Internet has a lot to do with the decline of the media in this country, or, more importantly, the more free-flowing information that the Internet provides has people turning a blind eye to the Left-dominated media. Hence, control is needed with the Leftist-dominated government being the ones to control it.

With these Leftist nutcases in charge, this is one issue to be kicked down the road for good. Leave the Internet alone.

Rush was saying one of the things they want to do is have pop-up ads, say on a conservative website, to show the liberal side.

Homeland Security Alert: Terror suspect may be headed to Texas through Mexico

Homeland Security Alert: Terror suspect may be headed to Texas through Mexico

HOUSTON — A Homeland Security Alert is asking Houston police and Harris County Sheriff’s deputies to keep their eyes open for a potential terrorist.

The alert focuses on Mohamed Ali, a suspected member of the terrorist group Al Shabaab. It indicates he may be traveling to the U.S. through Mexico.

Al Shabaab is a terrorist group based in Somalia with links to the Somali attacks dramatized in the movie “Blackhawk Down.” A few months ago, the group announced its allegiance to Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden.

“[Al Shabaab operatives] are certainly a real threat to U.S. security and an increasing threat to U.S. security,” said Rice University Baker Institute Fellow Joan Neuhaus Schaan.

The route from Somalia to Texas is shorter than Americans would like to think. It goes through Mexico. Two weeks ago, a federal indictment was filed in San Antonio against a Somali citizen. It alleges Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane led a “large-scale smuggling enterprise,” moving east Africans into the U.S., including members of a terrorist group called AIAI.

“It was hundreds of individuals,” Neuhaus Schaan said, in referrence to the indictment.

The current indictment has three counts for making false statements in regard to immigration for allegedly lying about his ties to terrorist groups.

Why would Al Shabaab come to the U.S?

“Either to recruit provide more funding or serve as operatives or sleepers for some future activity,” Neuhaus Schaan said.

If authorities are right, Mohamed Ali is hardly alone and a terror network is following well-worn human smuggling routes into the Lone Star State.

“There would be a reasonable chance to have him [Mohamed Ali] coming through Houston,” Neuhaus Schaan said. “They [Al Shabaab] have been pretty busy in Texas.”

When will most Americans wake up to the fact that these people started swarming to attack us once President Surrender-Monkey was sworn in???

RAT Barack Obama Upstaged by Scurrying Rodent! LOL

In this video the mouse/rodent that upstaged President Obama yesterday by scurrying past the podium where he was speaking.

The video shows the mouse before Obama came to the podium as it runs out and then back into the bushes. But later it apparently took off again right past the podium as Obama was delivering his remarks.

If President Obama thought he heard a squeak of dissent as he announced tough new banking regulations he may have been right.

But it was a small rodent rather than a Wall Street fat cat who nearly upstaged the Commander-in-Chief as he spoke in the Rose Garden yesterday.

The creature no one is quite sure whether it was a rat or mouse, or possibly a vole broke for cover from a set of bushes to Mr Obamas right, passed directly in front of the presidential podium, and then disappeared into another set of bushes on his left.

Last week, as camera crews set up for Mr Obamas statement on the Gulf oil spill, whats believed to have been the same rodent made another dash across the famous garden.

Obama Continues His Destruction Of America As Sweeping Wall Street Reform Bill Advances

Dr. Coburn on Fox with Neil Cavuto Discussing the Financial Reform Bill


Scott Brown Key to Wall St. Bill Passage

The Senate voted 60-40 to end debate on the bill as U.S. stocks fell sharply. Barney Frank, the Democratic head of a key House committee, told CNBC television news it is important to get financial reform approved quickly to ease market uncertainty. He said he expected Obama could sign a bill into law well before July 4.


In January, he broke the Democrats’ lock on the Senate.

On Thursday, he gave it back.

Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) effectively became the 60th vote to cut off debate on Wall Street reform Thursday – a far cry from when Republicans were hailing him as the 41st GOPer who was going to stand up to the Democrats’ agenda. Brown also voted "yes" on final passage.

Brown’s vote allowed Democrats to move swiftly toward final passage of one of President Barack Obama’s top legislative priorities, a day after he was accused of breaking his word by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who said Brown had promised to vote yes Wednesday.

By Thursday, though, Brown switched from no to yes, after a talk with Reid and a full-on sales-pitch from Democrats in the Massachusetts delegation, including Sen. John Kerry, who made the pitch that the bill is good for the state. Brown met Kerry at the Democrat's Georgetown home at 6 a.m. Thursday for a bike ride where they discussed the pending bill extensively, Brown said.

“I spoke at length over a 40 mile bike-ride with Senator Kerry about it,” Brown said exiting the floor after casting his vote Thursday. “It was this morning, and he’s a very good athlete.”

Kerry, who had hip replacement surgery in January, rode with Brown all the way to Great Falls, Md., an aide to the Democrat confirmed to POLITICO.

House Financial Service Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) also talked to Brown – telling him that his concerns about the impact on home-state financial firms such as Fidelity and State Street would be addressed.

It wasn’t simply home-state pride. Democrats needed Brown when it became clear that the ‘no’ votes of Democratic senators Maria Cantwell of Washington and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin couldn’t be flipped.

The vote – and perhaps even his long conversation with Kerry – seem sure to give Brown trouble with the government-wary Tea Party movement that backed his candidacy to take Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat. Grassroots supporters who once heralded Brown responded to the senator's vote immediately on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, accusing him of being a "liar" and "Republican in name only."

In some ways, Brown was only facing the challenge many predicted he might:

Would he be the champion of the conservative causes that swept him into the national spotlight? Or would he find himself ideologically aligned with the traditionally Democratic state of Massachusetts?

By breaking with his party, Brown joined fellow New England Republicans Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine as the vote that pushed Democrats over the top and continued to cement himself as a key player for Democrats who lost their filibuster-proof 60-vote majority with his election.

When Brown arrived to Washington in January, he received a hero's welcome from a Republican party still reeling from huge defeats in 2008. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) even went so far as to dub Brown "41."

But as Thursday's vote demonstrated, perhaps the filibuster-boosting moniker was a bit premature. In statements made throughout the voting process on Wall Street reform, Brown has chosen to emphasize Massachusetts first.

“I supported moving the financial bill forward today because I received assurances from Senator Reid and his leadership team that the issues related to Massachusetts in the financial reform bill will be fixed before it is signed into law," Brown said in a statement.

“I will continue working with Senator Kerry and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation to ensure that businesses in our state can continue to operate as they have been doing for decades — creating jobs and helping grow the economy.”

Brown was already in the spotlight this week, viewed a likely Republican “yes” vote all along. On Wednesday night, Reid took a shot at Brown, saying "a senator broke his word with me" just minutes after the Massachusetts Republican told reporters he initially said to Reid he would be a "yes" on cloture.

Brown insisted that he had not broken his promise — that his vote was contingent on the resolution of issues he saw with Volcker Rule language in the bill — but Reid's focus on the Republican, both in front of reporters and on the Senate floor, were indicative of Brown's relative importance to the majority leader.

“When he told me that I let him down, I told him straight-up that I certainly felt badly about it but the bottom line is that representations were made, these issues were not resolved, and here we are," Brown said Wednesday. "Him saying what he said — I never take any of this personally. I know he's under a lot of pressure."


Wild Thing's comment........

This is the WORST bill, it literally will destroy the entire concept of "America" as we know it. The Finance Reform Bill attacking Wall Street and much much more of course.

Jim Demint called this the "worst bill that's ever been in the Senate."

It's the financial regulations bill that basically turns control of every single little aspect of the private sector over to Obama. He now has more power than Castro.

I just can't believe the vacant souls on the Hill. What are they thinking? One man speaking for 300 million people and not with the voice of the majority. What are they thinking?

THREE Republicans: Brown, Snowe, and Collins vote for Cloture.

It will be hard for any law to exceed the damage that will eventually be done by ObamaCare, but this ill-conceived monstrosity, aka the Financial Reform Bill, will ultimately be right up there with socialized healthcare when it comes to contributing to the destruction of America as we have known it.

It will be known as the Mother-of-All-Unintended-Consequences Bill. This is the one that allows them to track each and every financial transaction. every credit card, debit card, check, deposit and withdrawal.

And the consequences will not be good.

Obama's New Term for the 'War on Terror': CVE "Countering Violent Extremism"

Obama's New Term for the 'War on Terror': CVE

It's not the "War on Terror" anymore. We've know that since Obama took office. He does not see it as a "war," and he certainly won't allow "War against Islamic Extremism" to be used, or the "War against Islamic Jihadists." But Marc Ambinder has picked up on the Obama Administration's new euphemism to keep from stating the obvious - "Countering Violent Extremism:"

The New Term for the War on Terror

The Atlantic

If you blinked, you might have missed it. The Obama administration has unofficially rebranded "war on terror" phrase that dominated public discourse throughout the Bush administration. The replacement phrase, carefully chosen, is "CVE" -- Countering Violent Extremism.

Early in the administration, the Office of Management and Budget changed the wording of the line item under which the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were funded. They called it "Overseas Contingency Operations." That phrase was never intended to be for public consumption (and public ridicule), but burrowed bureaucrats leaked it to the press, a field day was had.

Countering Violent Extremism is noticeable for two words that aren't there: some variant of "jihad," which is the preferred predicate for counter-terrorism-fighting conservatives, and "war," which is because the administration has put de-radicalization alongside the Predator drones as a primary instrument of combat. No mention of Islam, of course. That's because the administration wants to try and decouple the notion of combating terrorism from the Muslim faith itself. BTW: when I first heard the phrase, I assumed it stood for "combating violent extremism." But no -- the word combat denotes military action only -- Obama's approach combines hard and soft power.

The phrase first appears to have been used in public by the director of national intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair (Ret.), and its utterance was picked up by Newsweek.

Though there hasn't been any formal announcement, folks in the counteterrorism business are now using CVE in the same way they used GWOT -- Global War On Terror just five years ago.


Wild Thing's comment........

They are wasting their time in coming up with stupid terminology for the war rather than crushing the evil of islamic terrorism. They think that they can win the war by coming up with a certain "buzzword".

God bless our brave troops who are fighting and dying for our freedom and our way of life. They need our prayers now more than ever because they are under the command of this totally incompetent, stupid, and weak Obama regime.

Tom McClintock's Totally Awesome Response to President Calderon

Response to President Calderon

House Chamber, Washington, D.C.
May 20, 2010

M. Speaker:

I rise to take strong exception to the speech of the President of Mexico while in this chamber today.

The Mexican government has made it very clear for many years that it holds American sovereignty in contempt and President Calderons behavior as a guest of the Congress confirms and underscores this attitude.

It is highly inappropriate for the President of Mexico to lecture Americans on American immigration policy, just as it would be for Americans to lecture Mexico on its laws.

It is obvious that President Calderon does not understand the nature of America or the purpose of our immigration law.

Unlike Mexicos immigration law -- which is brutally exclusionary -- the purpose of Americas law is not to keep people out. It is to assure that as people come to the United States, they do so with the intention of becoming Americans and of raising their children as Americans.

Unlike Mexico, our nation embraces immigration and what makes that possible is assimilation.

A century ago President Teddy Roosevelt put it this way. He said:

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

That is how we have built one great nation from the people of all the nations of the world.

The largest group of immigrants now comes from Mexico. A recent RAND discovered that during most of the 20th Century, while our immigration laws were actually enforced, assimilation worked and made possible the swift attainment of the American dream for millions of immigrants seeking to escape conditions in Mexico.

That is the broader meaning of our nations motto, e pluribus unum from many people, one people, the American people.

But there is now an element in our political structure that seeks to undermine that concept of E Pluribus Unum. It seeks to hyphenate Americans, to develop linguistic divisions, to assign rights and preferences based on race and ethnicity, and to elevate devotion to foreign ideologies and traditions, while at the same time denigrating American culture, American values and American founding principles.

In order to do so, they know that they have to stop the process of assimilation. In order to do that, they must undermine our immigration laws.

It is an outrage that a foreign head of state would appear in this chamber and actively seek to do so. And it is a disgrace that he would be cheered on from the left wing of the White House and by many Democrats in this Congress.

Arizona has not adopted a new immigration law. All it has done is to enforce existing law that President Obama refuses to enforce. It is hardly a radical policy to suggest that if an officer on a routine traffic stop encounters a driver with no drivers license, no passport, and who doesnt speak English, that maybe that individual might be here illegally.

And to those who say we must reform our immigration laws I reply that we dont need to reform them we need to enforce them. Just as every other government does. Just as Mexico does.

Above all, this is a debate of, by and for the American people. If President Calderon wishes to participate in that debate, I invite him to obey our immigration laws, apply for citizenship, do what 600,000 LEGAL immigrants to our nation are doing right now, learn our history and our customs, and become an American. And then he will have every right to participate in that debate.

Until then, I would politely invite him to have the courtesy while a guest of this Congress to abide by the fundamental rules of diplomacy between civilized nations not to meddle in each others domestic debates.


Congress Gives Calderon Standing Ovation for Bashing AZ

Democrats gave Mexican President Felipe Calderon a standing ovation after he bashed the Arizona immigration law on the House Floor. Attorney General Holder and Secretary Napolitano also stood and clapped as the Calderon attacked the law they didn’t read before casting their judgment.

This is just positively one of the most disgusting displays ever. ~ Wild Thing

Cafferty Slams Obama and Dems For Their Response To Arizona Immigration Law


And there is this:

71% of Arizona Voters Now Support Immigration Bill… Dems, Obama & Calderon Disagree


Arizona voters now support the state’s new immigration law more than ever and are still more inclined to think the law will be good for the state’s economy rather than bad. A lot of voters in the state are thinking it’s payback time, too, to those cities or states that boycott Arizona.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Arizona finds that 71% now favor the immigration law, while 24% oppose it.

In late April, the law was supported by 64% of the state’s voters and opposed by 30%

Nationally, 55% of voters favor passage of such a law in their state.

President Obama and others, including major Hispanic groups, have criticized the law, saying it will lead to racial profiling, and have continued to oppose it despite the state legislature’s amending of the law to address that concern.

Gov. Jan Brewer Speaks About Obama and His Administration

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer ripped Barack Obama tonight for misrepresenting the facts on the Arizona immigration law.

“It’s been the law for decades.”

Gov. Brewer: “Obama is a Comic-in-Chief”

David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has had enough with the left-wing attacks on her state after its legislature passed a now controversial law to curb illegal immigration. She was especially irritated by a joke President Obama made about this law at the recent White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Back then Obama said, once again proving he has sense of humor: “We all know what happens in Arizona when you don’t have ID — adios, amigos.”

“It’s fair to ask whether he intends to be the Commander-in-Chief or the Comic-in-Chief,” Brewer shot back yesterday when announcing the launch of a website aimed at educating the United States about her state’s new law. “Since the president’s joke was so inappropriate, I suppose, if I wanted to join in the comedian game, I could suggest that he should not give up his day job.”

Although the above made perfectly clear what she thinks of Obama, Brewer wasn’t quite done yet. “Unfortunately, though, he isn’t doing very well at that one, either,” she added as a punchline.

Governor Brewer certainly made jokes, but it’s perfectly clear that she has it with the criticism directed at her state. She wants the Obama administration to either do something about the illegal immigration problem or to let individual states deal with it and get out of the way.

Additionally, the governor was clearly angry with Obama (and the Left in general) for pretending that border security has something to do with racism. The president, Gov. Brewer said, apparently sees this all as “a wonderful opportunity to divide people along racial lines for his personal political gain.” It goes without saying that she – rightly – considers this a terrible tactic. “This isn’t an immigration crisis but a border security crisis."

Additionally, the governor was clearly angry with Obama (and the Left in general) for pretending that border security has something to do with racism. The president, Gov. Brewer said, apparently sees this all as “a wonderful opportunity to divide people along racial lines for his personal political gain.” It goes without saying that she – rightly – considers this a terrible tactic. “This isn’t an immigration crisis but a border security crisis,” she said to loud applause from those present.

Although she’s certainly right that the Obama’s use of the race card is contemptible, I wonder what else she expected from a disciple of the infamous Saul Alinsky. Obama’s simply doing what his teacher taught him. He’s using Alinsky’s rules for radicals against his opponents, including the governor of Arizona. Is it despicable? Sure. Is it surprising though? Certainly not.

In any case, it’s interesting to see that Obama’s becoming increasingly less popular among (mostly conservative) governors. Normally presidents do everything in their power to create somewhat of a healthy relationship with individual governors. Obama, however, seems to believe that he doesn’t need them. Brewer is now making clear that he couldn’t be more wrong. Governors can put up a terrible fight when they want to.

Lastly, I wonder how long it will be before the race card will be useless altogether. There certainly are racists out there, but the Left is accusing its opponents so often of racism that it can’t be long before it loses its strength as a tactic. What will Obama and his friends do then to prevent the borders from being secured?


Wild Thing's comment........

I would call him Imposter-In-Chief. I have yet to laugh at what he thinks is funny. I also can't stand the way he speaks .

The Governor is actually taking her job seriously and doing things that need to be done while Nero fiddles. God bless her and protect her.

Our laws, and the rights that we thought were inviolate, have no meaning or consequence to Obama and his Alien Demolition Squad.

Anti-American Obama and Calderon On WH Lawn Jointly Attack Our ILLEGAL Immigration Law

Obama Tells Mexican President ""we are defined not by our borders, but by our bonds."

Obama and Calderon jointly attacked the law on the White House lawn today. They were basically falling all over each other to see who would win the I-Hate-The-AZ-Law-Most contest. Calderon said the law “forced his people to face discrimination” and he called for a “border that would unite us instead of dividing us.” Translation – if you could just go ahead and make it easier for our people to walk on over the border illegally without penalty or consequence, that’d be terrific. In fact, if you could also provide refreshments along the way TO the border, so that they wouldn’t have so much to carry on their trip through the desert, we’d appreciate it.

Calderon went on: “…we will retain our firm rejection to criminalized migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation would be treated as criminals.” Hey Calderon – crossing the border illegally is a crime – hence the whole, you know, criminality of it.


Article below is at FOX news

Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit

Obama, speaking next to Calderon during Wednesday's state visit, called the tough immigration law a "misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system."

"We're examining any implications especially for civil rights because in the United States of America, no law abiding person -- be they an American citizen, illegal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico -- should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like."
Obama said he has directed the Justice Department to review the law and said he expects to receive a final report soon.

Arizona's law, which takes effect in July, will make it a crime under state law to be in the U.S. illegally

Calderon said the law discriminated against Mexicans and called for the two countries to work together to develop an immigration policy that did not force people to live in the shadows "with such laws as the Arizona law, which is forcing our people to face discrimination."
Calderon, whose remarks were translated from Spanish, said "We can do so if we create a safer border -- a border that will unite us instead of dividing us.
"We are and will continue to be respectful of the internal policies of the United States and its legitimate right to establish, in accordance to its Constitution, whatever laws it approves," he said, "But we will retain our firm rejection to criminalized migration so that people that work and provide things to this nation would be treated as criminals."


Wild Thing's comment........

Great, just what was needed. The WH as a backdrop and forum for a foreigner to come into our country and malign our states and their citizens trying to enforce legitimate laws.

"we are defined not by our borders, but by our bonds."

No, we're defined by our laws, not our bonds. Our bonds develop out of our laws, bonding us to those of similar mind and love of freedom, and the rule of law.

At least, that's the way is was...

Hard to see this happening. An acting president makes the announcement that this country will not protect our own borders. Doesn’t surprise me given who obama is, but damn, this is an official announcement from the white house that we border states are on our own. And the bad guys around the world are getting that message as well. Good thing I’m not President. I’d show him the door, tell him the American people have a right to defend our border, our homes, and our lives, and his continued flaunting of our laws is an act of war. Then I’d send the army to guard our borders with orders to shoot to kill.

Ronald Reagan rightly said, “A nation without borders is not a nation.”

I am so sick and fed up with Obama and his bashing our country and what he did with Calderon he encouraged him to bash our country as well. FED UP! Enough Obama! TREASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obama (terrorist sympathizer) Wants to Reach Out to Hezbollah Terrorists


Deputy National Security Advisor John Brennan told an audience yesterday that the Obama Adminstration wants to reach out to the “moderate” elements of the Hezbolllah terror group. Hezbollah is funded by Iran and its goal is to destroy Israel. That about tells you right there what the Obama Administration thinks of Israel.


The Obama administration is looking for ways to build up "moderate elements" within the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla movement and to diminish the influence of hard-liners, a top White House official said on Tuesday.

John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, met with Lebanese leaders during a recent visit.

"Hezbollah is a very interesting organization," Brennan told a Washington conference, citing its evolution from "purely a terrorist organization" to a militia to an organization that now has members within the parliament and the cabinet.
"There is certainly the elements of Hezbollah that are truly a concern to us what they're doing. And what we need to do is to find ways to diminish their influence within the organization and to try to build up the more moderate elements," Brennan said.

He did not spell out how Washington hoped to promote "moderate elements" given that the organization is branded a "foreign terrorist organization" by the United States.


Obama advisor John Brennan speaks about the beauty of Islam

“I did spend time with classmates at the American University in Cairo in the 1970’s. And, time spent with classmates from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine from around the world who taught me that whatever our differences in nationality, or race, or religion, or language, there are certain aspirations that we all share. To get an education. To provide for our family. To practice our faith freely . To live in peace and security. And in a 25 year career in government, I was privileged to serve in positions across the Middle East… In Saudi Arabia, I saw how our Saudi partners fulfilled their duty as custodians of the two holy mosques at Mecca and Medina. I marveled at the majesty of the Hajj and the devotion of those who fulfilled their duty as Muslims by making that pilgrimage. And, in all my travels the city I have come to love most is al-Quds, Jerusalem where three great faiths come together.”

John Brennan also calls Jerusalem “Al-Quds,” its Arabic name.

Awesome LT. Col. Allen West Talks Tough About Illegal Immigration and Obama

“See our government wants to castigate us as the enemy. Our President went down and said that the problem is here in the United States of America. Well, you know, let’s face it. Wherever he goes he’s going to apologize for this country. I can’t stand the guy. I absolutely can’t stand him.”

Illegals Threaten To Murder Americans With Axes and Shovels SB 1070

Illegal Aliens Will Use 'Shovels and Axes' Against Americans In Armed Rebellion

This video clip shows an illegal alien supporter in Arizona claiming that shovels and axes will be used against Americans just prior to the riot where police officers and American citizens were assaulted by the mob protesting SB 1070.

"We will not stop! We will take up our shovels and pickaxes and we...we will use them against you! Believe that!" screams an opponent of Arizona's tough new bill addressing illegal immigration.

That horrendous threat of violence came from a pro-Amnesty demonstrator at the Arizona State Capitol. After you view it, ask yourself why there was no coverage of this video on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN or even FOX News.
Do you believe that if a person who supports secure borders and legal immigration (or heaven forbid... a TEA Party supporter) had made such a comment, you would have seen the video plastered across your television screen 24-7?
Of course, the threats uttered by the woman in this video are not isolated incidents. Pro-Amnesty demonstrators committed heinous acts of violence at many of these rallies... smashing windows... assaulting patriotic Americans... and, of course, the Lame Stream Media ignored those stories.
According to the Washington Times: "Yet, from the very first demonstration in Phoenix when the bill was signed on April 23, liberal protests have been marked by violence and arrests. In Chicago last week, the local Fox station reported that 'police clashed with demonstrators' and protesters blocked vehicles; 24 were arrested. A Sunday march in Santa Cruz, Calif., damaged 18 businesses, with repair costs reaching an estimated 100,000. In San Francisco, three people were beaten by protesters, with two arrested. During a pro-illegal-immigration protest outside the White House on Saturday, 35 were arrested. The list goes on."
And yet, in spite of these heinous acts of violence, at this very moment, legislators on both sides of the aisle are planning to shove an Amnesty bill down the throats of the American people and it is up to patriotic Americans like us to make sure that they do no such thing.

Several organizers supporting the opponents of the bill can be seen trying to stop illegal alien supporters from accosting American citizens that support SB 1070.

Despite intense efforts by illegal alien organizers and police to keep the angry crowd back, a large Hispanic male in a red sport jersey that reads "Warner 13" tries to push past handlers and another voice screams " (garbled) you can't argue with a puto!"

The Urban Dictionary defines a puto as a "Spanish word for a male prostitute. sometimes it´s offensive for homosexuals. in Mexico it is used for cowards and traitors"

"We just want to make sure that our police agencies in these towns and cities where similar groups of angry illegal alien supporters plan to gather on May 1, are fully and properly informed," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "We are asking our supporters to make sure their local police are aware of the riots, assaults on police, assaults on Americans, and murderous slogans advocating armed rebellion documented in this video, as well as others coming out of Arizona."


Wild Thing's comment........

Liberals and open boarders people don’t care about the laws. They want Amnesty only. they are not willing to reasonably understand the law.

Polls show that over 60% of Americans support the Arizona law, yet not a peep about that from the Lame Stream Media since it doesn’t support their world view. The only ‘backlash’ is from the leftist media and illegals.

God Bless Gov Brewer and keep her safe!!!

Arizona Threatens To Cut Off Power to Los Angeles

Arizona threatens to cut off power to Los Angeles

Examiner Tampa Bay

Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce sent a letter Tuesday to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa daring him to carry out his bogus race-baiting vendetta against Arizona for expecting immigrants to follow rules.

In the letter, he warned that boycott wars are bad for both sides, but said he will "be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements."

Pierce added:

I am confident that Arizona's utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands...If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona's economy.


Wild Thing's comment........

So now it's state vs. state. I can't blame AZ at all if they do this or even think about doing it.

Obama sure is one heck of a unifier, isn't he!?!

This is how you end the good faith between the States that holds us together and it is the short-sighted Liberals in CA (and Obama) that don’t see the big picture here as they wrongly attack and boycott an individual State.

I applaud Arizona for reminding CA/LA how stupid they are and can only hope that if push comes to shove they cut the power off.

However, we are seeing a fracture of the “faith” that keeps our states (and nation) at peace with one another and it’s disturbing.

Bottom line from me I say, bring it on. I am so fed up with politicians siding with the lawless and ignoring OUR laws.

Open Season On Iincumbents by Dick Morris



The message of the May 18th primaries is that it is open season on incumbents. In Pennsylvania, Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pa) lost decisively to Congressman Joe Sestak (D-Pa)in his primary contest while Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark) limped into the runoff in the Democratic primary by 44-42 over Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. There can be little doubt that Lincoln will lose the runoff having scored so far under 50% of the vote. The fact is that 56% of the Democrats in Arkansas decided to vote against Lincoln.

Both Specter and Lincoln are now reaping the harvest of their votes for health care, a fate soon to be shared by Senators Harry Reid (D-NV), Barbara Boxer (D-Cal.), Michael Bennet (D Col.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). And the liability of incumbency was also vividly on display a week ago when long time Democratic incumbent Congressman Alan Mollohan (D-W Va.) was upended in his primary contest.

Lest the Democrats take comfort in their new standard bearers in Pennsylvania and Arkansas, it is obvious that Sestak and Halter will be easier to defeat than their far better known incumbent rivals would have been. The new Senator from Pennsylvania will be Republican nominee Pat Toomey and from Arkansas it will be Congressman John Boozman (R-Ark.).

With the defeat of Specter, the likely demise of Lincoln, and the recent loss of Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah), the new Senate class of 2011 will have at least 14 new members...with more to come.

Democrats are taking satisfaction from their victory in Pennsylvania 12 where they held onto the seat of deceased Congressman John Murtha. But the obvious reason for their success is that Democratic turnout was boosted by a ferocious statewide Senate primary which drew out 1,050,000 voters while the Republican contest -- never seriously contested 00 brought a paltry 800,000 to the polls. With no statewide reason to vote, local PA-12 Republicans stayed home while their Democratic neighbors flocked to the polls to vote against Specter (a joy not to be missed).

The Democratic victory in PA-12 also underscores a more fundamental point which is that incumbency is a huge liability in 2010. It is simply better to come from nowhere to run this year than to seek to keep a seat in this totally discredited Congress.

Rand Paul´s success in Kentucky in toppling establishment Senate candidate Trey Grayson in the Republican primary -- along with the Bennett defeat in Utah -- shows that this anti-politician sentiment cuts across party lines.

The harsh verdict on incumbents stems not so much from party preferences as from revulsion at the legislative process itself. The by-product of violating Bismark´s maxim that the public should never see sausage being made or a law being passed is that those who do the latter in full public view are doomed to end their legislative careers in defeat. The unseemly bargaining, machinations, and overt buying and selling of votes that characterized the health care debate of 2009-2010 has left so sour a taste in voter mouths that they understandably dismiss those incumbents from office whenever they can.

The fact that President Obama let the Congress write the two thousand page bill in public and that Reid and Pelosi negotiated for votes in front of the media, has amplified voter anger at Congress. Watching the deals being hatched and votes switching proved too much for the electorate to stomach. Now it is expressing its discontent with the legislative shenanigans it has had to watch.

This year is not just an anti-Democrat year. It is an anti-incumbent year.


Wild Thing's comment........

IMO these elections are more important then ever before.We never had anyone as against America like Obama is and his other democrats. They are on a roll which makes them even more dangerous. Nothing to stop them except for our vote.

I sure hope we keep seeing more and more people finally waking up to the reality of horror that the left and Obama leading them is doing to our country.

AZ Passes English Language Law ~ Three Cheers For Gov. Brewer!

AZ Passes English Language Law

FOX News

PHOENIX - A Glendale optometrist's yearlong legal fight over what services he had to provide for a Spanish-speaking customer has translated into new protections for other businesses.

Gov. Jan Brewer has signed legislation affirming that nothing in state law requires businesses to provide "trained and competent" interpreters when a customer comes in speaking a language other than English.

Assistant Attorney General Michael Walker said that has probably always been the law. But that didn't save John Schrolucke from having to spend time and money defending himself and his practice before Walker's office finally dismissed the case.

Schrolucke told lawmakers the incident stems from a patient who spoke only Spanish. Although she did bring her 12-year-old child with her to the office, he said allowing the child to interpret for the parent would have gotten him into legal trouble.

He said he faced a potential malpractice lawsuit if the child did not properly translate some of the more technical explanations being provided, so he turned the woman away, telling her through her child to come back with someone at least 18 years old.

Schrolucke said he also gave the woman the option of going to one or two other optometrists who speak Spanish.

Instead, he said, the woman filed a discrimination complaint with the Attorney General's Office.

State law prohibits discrimination in places of "public accommodation," which include restaurants, hotels, theaters and any place that offers services or goods to the general public.

Schrolucke said he was given an option to settle. But that would have required him and anyone who bought his business to provide interpreters and documents in Spanish, something he said would set a bad precedent for not only his operation but other small businesses.


Wild Thing's comment......

The AZ. Gov. is so awesome. I wish they would take that horrible press 2 off of all business and heck everywhere. Why don't the spanish speaking people in our country realize it is actually a put down that they have this. No other immigrant that has come to our country ( LEGALLY) has demanded such a thing.

What the heck would be next anyway.......1 for English- Press 2 for Spanish- Press three for French-Press 4 for German- press 5 for Chinese- Press 6 for Arabic-Press 7 for Farsi....etc.?

The Awesome POW NETWORK Identifies the PHONY Standing Next To LIAR Blumenthal

A former Marine who was previously identified by the POW NETWORK, a patriotic organization that exposes Posers and liars who steal valor from veterans, has been identified as one of the men standing behind Connecticut State Atty General

Blumenthal’s military buddy on stage is William Joseph Trumpower, aka Elliott Storm, a POW HALL OF SHAME

I copied this from the POW Hall of Shame link above.

WILLIAM JOSEPH TRUMPOWER aka Elliott Storm CLAIMING BRONZE STAR w/VALOR device. Claims 2nd Lt, Claims Wears 3 Purple Hearts, 2 Bronze Stars w/V. The jacket in EARLIER pictures boasted 8 ribbons. This NEW pic has more and includes V device on Bronze Star and 2nd Lt bars. Claims he worked with Ollie North. Reported to have an officer's ID card for 100% disability. Noted as a Disabled American Veteran, commissioned officer 01, Marine Corps.

The New Haven Independent

Blumenthal called supporter Storm who helped him out today.

Elliott Storm is a Blumenthal supporter. The campaign called him and asked him to show up; he called up his friends in the “Vet Pack” to join him, friends who, like him, travel around the country talking about ex-soldiers who contend with post traumatic stress syndrome.

He didn’t apologize. But as he scrambled to resuscitate his battered U.S. Senate campaign Tuesday, Democrat Richard Blumenthal said he “regrets” “misspeaking.”

Then he swung back.

“I will not,” he declared, “allow anyone to take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service to our country.”

Blumenthal made the remarks at a 2 p.m. press event at a West Hartford VFW Hall, as he scrambled to contain the damage from a New York Times expose charging that he has falsely claimed to have served in the military in Vietnam, rather than at home in the marine reserves.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Blumenthal lied about his service and then Blumenthal goes before the press and put up some former service men... and now one of them is also found to have lied about there service.

Idiot and Cold Blooded Obama: Daniel Pearl's Beheading "Captured the World's Imagination"

Obama told reporters yesterday that the video of Islamic radicals sawing off a Daniel Pearl’s head with a butter knife “capured the world’s imagination.”

“Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

There was no imagination to it. It was HORRIFIC. Beheadings do not capture one’s imagination, they horrify. This was not a sporting event - this was the cold blooded, sadistic murder of an innocent human being.

For something like that to capture your imagination, you’d have to be a bloodthirsty jihadist.

Very dubious choice of words. A most inappropriate tone.

Almost admiring.....Neil Armstrong captured the imagination of the world, but L’Affaire Pearl?

Primaries Yesterday Rand Paul Takes Kentucky – Sestak Beats Specter – Burns Concedes

Rand Paul: We Have Come To Take Our Government Back


The AP

Political novice Rand Paul rode support from tea party activists to a rout in Kentucky’s Republican Senate primary Tuesday night, jolting the GOP establishment. Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter lost his struggle for political survival in Pennsylvania, a five-term incumbent offering experience to voters clamoring for change.

Another Democratic incumbent, Sen. Blanche Lincoln, led narrowly in early returns in her race for nomination to a third term in Arkansas, but she risked being thrown into a costly run-off.

Sestak will face former GOP Rep. Pat Toomey in the fall in what expected to be a hotly contested race.

Elsewhere, Kentucky Republicans chose Paul — the son of Texas Rep. Ron Paul, whose 2008 presidential candidacy sparked legions of followers — as their nominee for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Jim Bunning. Tea party activists lifted Paul to victory over Secretary of State Trey Grayson, who was the favored candidate of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Celebrating his triumph, Paul — a 47-year-old eye surgeon making his first run for office — said, "I have a message, a message from the tea party, a message that is loud and clear and does not mince words: We have come to take our government back."

Tim Burns concedes in Pennsylvania 12 Special Election (Murtha's District)

Tim's race was difficult to win. The Dems outnumber the GOP in this district that belonged to vile Murtha.
Murtha died 2-8-10 and had been in office since 1974. There wasn’t a lot of time to build a good GOP political machine .
It had to be hard to overcome the Democrat machine, especially on relatively short notice. Let us hope they do better by November.

David Madeira run for Congress did not win. He is such a good man, I feel really badly about this one.

In unofficial results, with complete reports not in from five counties, Marino secured 22,848 votes, Madeira tallied 16,989 and Derk had 15,908.

Meet The Lawyers Our Money Pays For Defending Obama The Usurper

Meet the lawyers fighting another Obama Eligibility lawsuit, defending the Usurper is a full time job.


Obama's DoJ lawyers file 'Notice of Related Case' in the Jones v. Obama lawsuit, now in the United States District Court for Central California Western Division.

In short, Obama's lawyers, paid with your tax dollars, argue the Jones v. Obama lawsuit is related to the Captain Pamela Barnett(Keyes), et al v. Obama et al lawsuit, that was dismissed last year by Judge Carter, and argue the Jones case should go before Judge Carter.

Jones filed her opposition to the DoJ motion, on 5/11/10, which can be viewed below the DoJ notice, embedded below. It's only 7 pages and speaks for itself...

Wouldn't it be easier to just release ALL the records and prove Obama is constitutionally eligible? I think most of us know the answer..

Russian Climate Scientist Predicts New Ice Age To Begi 2014 ~Hello Al Gore!!

New Ice Age 'to begin in 2014'

Russian scientist to alarmists: 'Sun heats Earth!'



A new "Little Ice Age" could begin in just four years, predicted Habibullo Abdussamatov, the head of space research at St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia.

Abdussamatov was speaking yesterday at the Heartland Institute's Fourth International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago, which began Sunday and ends today.

The Little Ice Age, which occurred after an era known in scientific circles as the Medieval Warm Period, is typically defined as a period of about 200 years, beginning around 1650 and extending through 1850.

In the first of a two-part video WND recorded at the conference, Abdussamatov explained that average annual sun activity has experienced an accelerated decrease since the 1990s. In 2005-2008, he said, the earth reached the maximum of the recent observed global-warming trend.


In Part 2 of the video, Abdussamatov further explained that through 2014 the earth will go through a series of unstable variations in which global temperature will oscillate around the maximum reached in the years 1998-2005.

In 2003-2005, Abdussamatov predicted a reduction of sunspot activity that would reach a new minimum in 2042, resulting in a deep global temperature minimum in the years 2055-2060.

"My predictions are looking better and better with each passing year," Abdussamatov declared.

Space station to refine predictions

In his capacity of the head of the Russian-Ukrainian project "Astrometria" on the Russian segment of the International Space Station, Abdussamatov is conducting additional research to refine his prediction that a new Little Ice Age will begin in 2014.

As seen in Part 2 of the video, Abdussamatov explained to the climate conference that the Russian segment of the ISS is scheduled to collect more precise data on sun activity over the next six years.

"If the Astrometria project is developed in time," Abdussamatov said, "we will be able to develop a more precise forecast of the duration and the depth of the approaching new Little Ice Age and to understand the reasons of cyclical changes taking place in the interior of the sun and the ways they affect the Earth and various scopes of human activity."

Abdussamatov's theory is that "long-term variations in the amount of solar energy reaching the Earth are the main and principal reasons driving and defining the whole mechanism of climatic changes from the global warmings to the Little Ice Ages to the big glacial periods."

In his speech's conclusion, Abdussamatov took on advocates of the theory of man-caused warming who want to diminish human use of hydrocarbon fuels. He contended, instead, that a reasonable way to combat coming cooling trends would be "to maintain economic growth in order to adapt to the upcoming new Little Ice Age in the middle of the 21st century."

A little more on this HERE


Wild Thing's comment........

I bet if there were carbons in snow, Gore would set up a snowball trading scheme and make millions like he has with global warming bs.

Seriously though, I wonder if THIS is the ‘ice age’ that they told us was upon us back in 1971?

DEMOCRAT Senate Candidate Richard Blumenthal FAKED His Vietnam War Service

Dem Senate Candidate Richard Blumenthal faked his Vietnam War service and lied about being the captain of the Harvard Swim Team.

Richard Blumenthal in 2008 lying about serving in Vietnam

Report: Blumenthal lied about military service

The Register Citizen

Did attorney general and senate hopeful Richard Blumenthal ever serve in Vietnam? Well, no. But according to The New York Times, Blumenthal is suggesting the opposite.

Blumenthal also claims he served as the Captain of the Harvard swim team, despite records at the college showing that he was never on the team.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Blumenthal said to a group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. But Blumehthal according to the Times, obtained five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took steps to avoid going to war.
“In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, he enlisted in the Marine Reserve, landing a coveted spot in a unit in Washington, D.C., which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. The unit conducted part-time drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive,” The Times report says.

The paper asked the attorney general about the contrast, and Blumenthal reportedly responded that he had misspoken.

“My intention has always been to be completely clear and accurate and straightforward, out of respect to the veterans who served in Vietnam,” he told the paper in an interview.

But The Times goes on to list several speeches during which it suggests Blumenthal misled his audience about his military career.

At a rally in Bridgeport in 2003, Blumenthal was quoted as saying, “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,”

In 2008, in Shelton, Blumenthal spoke at a veterans’ memorial dedication saying, “I served during the Vietnam era. … I remember the taunts, the insults, sometimes even physical abuse.”

“As a veteran myself, anyone who lies about their service should be ashamed of themselves,” City Councilor Rick Dalla Valle, himself a veteran said. “People give their lives every day, and anyone that lies about their service should be ashamed.”

Bob Hunter, Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 9086, and a Navy Veteran beleives that anyone that may have lied about their service should do whatever is necessary to make it right.

“I take issue with anyone that might lie about their service, it is up to the person to make ammends,” Hunter said. Hunter served in the navy from 1980 to 1984.

Blumenthal came out later today and blamed Republicans for his lies. He will appear at a press conference today with Connecticut veterans.

The New York Times' story detailing Connecticut Attorney General Dick Blumenthal's (D) misstatements about his service in Vietnam -- he received five deferments and never served in the country, according to the paper -- has the potential to fundamentally reshape the Nutmeg State Senate race.

Writes Raymond Hernandez: "What is striking about Mr. Blumenthal's record is the contrast between the many steps he took that allowed him to avoid Vietnam, and the misleading way he often speaks about that period of his life now, especially when he is speaking at veterans' ceremonies or other patriotic events." Oomph.

Blumenthal campaign manager Mindy Myers released a statement late Monday night describing the Times story as "an outrageous distortion" although she did not deny the fact that the candidate had misled people about the nature of his service. Myers noted that Blumenthal will appear at a press conference tomorrow with Connecticut veterans.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee communications director Eric Schultz put the blame for the story on Republicans and, in particular, former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon who is running for the GOP nod.

"Its no surprise Republicans would want to smear Dick Blumenthal, considering all of the debauchery at [WWE] under Linda McMahon's watch," said Schultz.

What a despicable thing to claim. Purposely avoiding service and then trying to lump himself in with the true heroes who actually did sacrifice is flat out unforgivable!

Every time the POS democrats LIE and get caught they say they " misspoke". I say " misspoke" is BS a lie is a lie. Go to hell you POS!

Tim Burns is Running for Congress in Pennsylvania ~ Go get them PA-12!

The special election to replace John Murtha . William Russell polled very close to Murtha right up until Election Day; Murtha won with 58% of the vote.. So pray and keep your fingers crossed on this one today. ~ Wild Thing


From the person that made this video:

"Tim Burns is running for congress in Pennsylvania. He's campaigning to take back the people's seat formerly held by Murtha.
Tim is NOT a politician. He's been a businessman and created hundreds of jobs in Pennsylvania. He has never secured pork-barrel money. He planst to work to reduce government spending, balance the budget, end government corruption, and grow the economy.
I created this video as part of my own personal tea party. I'm doing what I can to help out those who are making moves to reinstitute the constitutional debate back into government.
This video is an expression of my personal opinion and not paid for or endorsed by the Tim Burns campaign.


Obama's 'Bitter Clinger' Comments Haunt PA-12 Race

PR Newswire reported:

“President Obama’s deep disdain for Pennsylvania has been a matter of record for some time. In fact, at a wine and cheese party among Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco neighbors during the last election, Obama revealed exactly what he thinks of small town Pennsylvanians when he labeled them, ‘bitter,’ and asserted that they needed to ‘cling to their guns and religion,’” said Scott Wheeler, Executive Director of the National Republican Trust PAC. “It was a shocking display of elitist arrogance, but it seems consistent with Obama’s world view.”
“During this special election to fill Jack Murtha’s seat, it’s been less than surprising to see the mainstream media failing to remind Pennsylvanians just how disdainful is their President towards them, even as he has avoided traveling to the region, lest he sink Mark Critz’s campaign ship with his own ballast-filled approval rating. So, as a service to Western Pennsylvanians – and to encourage the excellent candidacy of Tim Burns – we thought we’d educate the voters about the real issues in this campaign, hence our radio spots about Obama’s ‘bitter clinger’ comments,” continued Wheeler.
“It comes down to this: Mark Critz is a hand-picked, Washington insider, a pawn of Obama and Pelosi. Tim Burns is NOT a career politician, but instead, a smart and articulate fiscal conservative, a champion of efficient, limited government, and a pro free market business veteran that has spent his life running a company and creating jobs in Pennsylvania. It’s a pretty compelling choice. We have faith that on Tuesday, Western Pennsylvanians will be voting for Tim Burns…and the ONLY THING they’ll be clinging to is our country!”


Also a new radio ad in support of Republican Tim Burns points to Barack Obama’s disdain for Pennsylvania gun-toting, Bible-thumping bitter clingers.

The 60-second Radio ad, entitled, "Bitter Clinger," can be listened to here:

Obama has ridiculed voters in rural districts like this Western Pennsylvania Dstrict calling them “bitter” and stating they “cling to their guns and religion.” He has even labeled these hardworking taxpayers as racist. Now he has the audacity to ask these proud Americans to vote for one of his , Washington insider, career politician cronies.

'Family Guy" TV Show Hits Rock Bottom As They Attack Dead Soldiers From The Vietnam War!


Here’s what happens: On a search to find the source of all dirty jokes (which eventually leads them to Virginia) Peter, Quagmire, and Joe pass through Washington, DC where they see the Washington Monument, the Obama Monument (it’s black) and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
Standing in front of the Memorial are two Vietnam Vets and a Vietnamese man who calls the Memorial a “scoreboard” and says “aw, what happened to your friends? Hey I know that guy, I killed him, he cried like a bitch. Vietnam! Undefeated!”


Wild Thing's comment........

I have never watched this show but this kind of thing crosses the line BIG TIME!

I googled Seth MacFarlane the creator of the show, he is a Democrat and an atheist. The kind that can’t seem to get down in the gutter enough.

He has donated over $50,000 to various Democratic congressional committees and to the 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama. per wikipukia.

Obsviously " Famiy Guy" is not a funny show. I have seen the other one a couple of times..... South Park and they can be funny, plus South Park is NOT Seth MacFarlne and South Park is the one that made fun of Muhammad that all the Muslims got ticked about.

Legal vs. Illegal by Dale Peterson

Legal vs. Illegal

by Dale Peterson

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal." Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15 cash "under the table."

Ready? Now pay attention...

Joe Legal: $25 per hour x 40 hours = $1000 per week, or $52,000 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.

Jose Illegal: $15 per hour x 40 hours = $600 per week, or $31,200 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600 per month, or $7,200 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.

Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.

Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500 per month for food, or $6,000 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200 per month, or $14,400 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631.

Jose Illegal receives a $500 per month federal rent subsidy.
Jose Illegal pays out that $500 per month, or $6,000 per year. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.

Joe Legal pays $200 per month, or $2,400 for insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.

Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and he still has $31,200.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.

Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches, while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch.

Pelosi to Artists: Quit your jobs, U.S. Taxpayers Have Your Health Care

The Daily Caller

Nancy Pelosi spoke to musicians and the artistically inclined in Washington DC, and instead of telling those in attendance they should get a job, she brought quite a different message: they needn’t bother working, because the taxpayers of the United States would cover their health care. Perhaps channeling her San Francisco district, Pelosi explained that without a job they would be free to focus on their talents, passions and aspirations because they wouldn’t be “job locked.”

Pelosi: “We see it as an entrepreneurial bill, a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care. You won’t have to be job locked.”


Here you go Nancy Pelosi..... " I don't want to work, bang on the drum all day ". Todd Rundgren

Investigative Report Shows How Terrorists are Using Mexican Border as "Back Door" into the U.S.

Investigative Report Shows How Terrorists are Using Mexican Border as "Back Door" into the U.S.

WSB-2 Atlanta video report on what they found out about just who is crossing into the United States along the border with Mexico. They went to Arizona, and found there are "thousands" of (OTM - "other than Mexicans) who are using the Mexican border as an open door into the U.S., and many of them are from Islamic nations where there are terror networks that mean us harm:

"We found illegals from Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen in custody."

Ranchers along the border have found "Islamic prayer rugs," and military-style clothing with insignias depicting a plane crashing into the twin towers. Known terrorists are suspected to have used the southern border area to enter the country.

The video features J.D. Hayworth, GOP challenger to John McCain's U.S. Senate seat, who says "the back door" to America is open along the border, and it is a grave threat to the nation.

Obama: No Questions For The Press at Press Freedom Event

Here is video of President Obama signing the "Daniel Pearl Freedom of the Press Act" today at the White House, which instructs the State Department to keep up with Press Freedom violations around the world as a way to help evaluate Human Rights conditions.

At the end of the signing, some of the press present attempted to ask questions, to which Obama smiled and told them, "you can ask" - but then said he would not be taking any questions.

Obama refuses media questions ... after signing 'Freedom Of Press Act'

We just don't talk anymore........

Washington Examiner

Obama today signed the Daniel Pearl Freedom of the Press Act, a measure that gives the federal government an oversight role in tracking international press freedom issues. The pool-only event went down in the Oval, where Obama was asked if he would entertain some questions -- specifically about BP.

"Speaking of press freedoms," ventured Chip Reid of CBS News.
"You're certainly free to ask the question," Obama said. "I won't be answering, I'm not doing a press conference today, but we'll be seeing you in the course of the week."

Oh, right. Wednesday's press conference with visiting Mexican President Felipe Calderone. We hear it's two questions per side. Obama strictly limits his availability to spontaneous inquiry from journalists -- but we're still "free to ask."


Wild Thing's comment........

LOL and he is ironically a creation of the MSM. This man is digging his own political grave. Even liberal MSM’ers don’t like being treated like this. He has been dodging them for a while.

He should have just said......“This is freedom of the press event, so shut up and print what we tell you!”

When no questions are allowed, the press should just say:

"You can talk all you want but we're not listening and we're not recording it". and then leave.

We are living in a Stalinist/Orwellian nightmare.

Obama and His Administration Talking With RED China In Human-Rights Talks ~ More Obama Attacking USA

The United States and China reported no major breakthroughs Friday after only their second round of talks about human rights since 2002.

The Obama administration wants to push Beijing to treat its citizens better, but it also needs Chinese support on Iranian and North Korean nuclear standoffs, climate change and other difficult issues.

China murdered millions of its citizens who opposed the government's Communist policies and allows most of its people little or no freedom.

You’ve Got to Be Kidding . . .

The Corner

by Jay Nordlinger

We, the United States, have been having human-rights talks with China. Our side is apparently led by Michael Posner, an assistant secretary of state. I will quote from an Associated Press report:

Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.

He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its [their?] own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person’s immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.

I hope I have read that incorrectly, or am interpreting it incorrectly. Did we, the United States, talking to a government that maintains a gulag, that denies people their basic rights, that in all probability harvests organs, apologize for the new immigration law in Arizona? Really, really?

And that is to leave to one side, for the moment, the question of whether issues of crime, poverty, and so on truly belong in human-rights talks. You remember the old line, taught to us by our dear Marxist professors: “Here in the West, we have political rights: of expression, worship, assembly, etc. But you can’t eat those! In the East Bloc, they have economic and social rights: to food, shelter, health care, and the like.” Of course, free countries do better by material measures, too — better than those countries that have “economic and social rights.” Infinitely better.

A month ago, President Obama told the leader of Kazakhstan that we were still — you know: working on our democracy. An Obama national-security aide, Mike McFaul, said, “[Obama has] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States.” (For a write-up, go here.) “Historic steps”? I suppose he meant national health care, socialized medicine. I suppose, by “democracy,” he meant social democracy. Hard to tell. I don’t think he meant that the Justice Department was going to make the New Black Panthers stop intimidating voters.

Do you ever get the idea that our government is a bunch of left-wing undergraduates come to power?


Wild Thing's comment........

This is unfreakingbelievable!

Simply another “death by a thousand cuts” aimed at the United States. They can’t acheive One World Government with a strong, soverign USA.

“crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.”

All of which were promoted and encouraged by leftists Democrats.

The freaks we have ruling the country right now have been responsible for pretty much EVERY problem this country has faced in the past 60 years.

OK let's ship about 10 million of our illegals to China, outsource our problem to them since they are such a tolerant society.

Arab Media Cheer Obama for De-Linking Muslims from Terror

Arab Media Cheer Obama for De-Linking Muslims from Terror

A leading international Arab newspaper has hailed U.S. President Barack Obama for officially removing the description “Muslim terrorist” as part of his campaign “to reach out to the Muslim world.” The op-ed did not note the radical Muslim bacgkround of the terrorists and reasoned they are equal to other terrorists whose religion is not connected with their acts.

Osman Mirghani, the deputy editor-in-chief of 'Al-Sharq Al-Awsat,' which is owned by a Saudi Arabian company and published in London, wrote an op-ed last week under the headline "Why Didn't Obama Mention Islam?." The Obama administration has broken from the Bush government’s policy of using the term “Islamic terrorism” in official documents and "no longer [is] responding to extremist voices" that call for targeting home countries of terrorists, he explained.

He said the president is carrying out his pledge in his “reaching out to Muslims speech” at Cairo University in June 2008. Regarding Obama's statements on the botched Times Square bombing, the editor praised President Obama for not once referring to prime suspect Faisal Shahzad’s being Muslim and for not “mentioning Islam in discussing the terrorist operation."

The same approach was taken after the failed Christmas Day bombing by Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmuttalib. “Obama spoke about the detained terrorist as a member of the Al-Qaeda organization but he did not speak about him being a Muslim,’ Mirghani wrote. “Even when he spoke about Al-Qaeda, Obama noted that it was not the first time that the network had targeted America, ignoring the links that were made in the past between the organization and Islam or when it was put in the context of 'Islamic extremism.'"

Similarly, after the Fort Hood, Texas attack by a Muslim terrorist who murdered 13 people last November, “President Obama 'cautioned against jumping to conclusions’” and did not refer to the terrorist's Arab origin or religion.

The article did not mention that most, if not all, Arab terrorists are indoctrinated by Muslim extremism. Instead, the editor argued that describing terrorists as Muslims actually provokes more terror.

“There is recognition today of the fact that terrorists are benefiting from the creation of an anti-Islamic and anti-Muslim atmosphere after any terrorist operation, and that issuing statements or taking steps that target Muslims employed by extremist groups further spreads hostility against the U.S., the West, and even moderate Islamic states,” he reasoned.

The writer argued that “the identity of the terrorist does not necessarily implicate the country he belongs to, in the same way that other adherents of the religion the terrorist follows should not be condemned."
He accused former President George W. Bush of being “captive to the Big Stick policy and slogans of 'you're either with us or against us,' which caused the popularity of the U.S. to wane, not only in the Islamic world but in numerous countries around the world." In contrast, he continued, “The new president has extended his hand to the Islamic world,… and the tendency to link every terrorist operation to the religion of the perpetrator has disappeared.”


“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit”
Barack Hussein Obama

“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country”
Barack Hussein Obama

“I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it.”
Barack Hussein Obama

“We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam”
Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams of my Father’, “IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL” I will stand by


From ‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I WILL STAND WITH

From The Audacity Of Hope, “WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

Green Festival

Here's how they are touting the 175 Featured "Visionary Speakers" for Seattle, June 5-6, 2010:

William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago.....

Dohrn, activist, academic and child advocate, is director of the Children and Family Justice Center and Clinical Associate Professor of the Northwestern University School Law, Bluhm Legal Clinic.

Wild Thing's comment........

Amazing, they are leading and bragging about Dohrn's tenure on the FBI's Most Wanted List, Weather Underground, etc.

BTW, of the 162 members of the host committee, 24 are listed as public employees, mostly City of Seattle. Our tax dollars hard at work.

(City of Seattle employees:Ayreen Calimquim, Bob Balzar, Brian Surratt, Charlie Cunniff, Cornell Amaya, Janice Boman, Janice Mathisen, Jeanie Boawn, Karen K. Reed, Lars Henrikson, Laurie Geissinger, Leslie Brazeau, Mark Mead, Richard Conlin, Stella Chao, Susan Harper, Suzanne Hartman)

The Green Movement clearly displays it’s ties and admiration to domestic terrorism.

A country that doesn’t hang or shoot its traitors will end up ruled by them.

Kagan Said " `Not Sympathetic' Toward Gun-Rights Claim"

Elena Kagan in 2005: Barack Obama is my hero

OMG this is sickening. She is all gushy about Obama, a total kool-aid drinker, she probably injects it in her veins. LOL YUK!


Kagan Said She Was `Not Sympathetic' Toward Gun-Rights Claim

Elena Kagan said as a U.S. Supreme Court law clerk in 1987 that she was “not sympathetic” toward a man who contended that his constitutional rights were violated when he was convicted for carrying an unlicensed pistol.

Kagan, whom President Barack Obama nominated to the high court this week, made the comment to Justice Thurgood Marshall, urging him in a one-paragraph memo to vote against hearing the District of Columbia man’s appeal.

The man’s “sole contention is that the District of Columbia’s firearms statutes violate his constitutional right to ‘keep and bear arms,’” Kagan wrote. “I’m not sympathetic.”

Kagan, currently the U.S. solicitor general, has made few public remarks about the Constitution’s Second Amendment. The Supreme Court in 2008 ruled, in a case that overturned the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, that the Constitution protects individual gun rights.

As a nominee to be solicitor general last year, Kagan told lawmakers that she accepted that 5-4 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller as a precedent of the court.

“There is no question, after Heller, that the Second Amendment guarantees individuals the right to keep and bear arms and that this right, like others in the Constitution, provides strong although not unlimited protection against governmental regulation,” she said.

Review Denied

The Heller decision left room for states to require registration of weapons. The majority also said the ruling didn’t cast doubt on laws barring handgun possession by convicted felons and the mentally ill, or restrictions on bringing guns into schools or government buildings.

The lower court ruling in the 1987 case, issued by the District of Columbia’s highest court, said the Second Amendment protects only the rights of states to raise militias, and not individual gun rights. The ruling upheld Lee Sandidge’s conviction for carrying a pistol without a license, possession of an unregistered firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

The high court refused to hear the case, known as Sandidge v. United States. The memo to Marshall, found in his papers at the Library of Congress, includes a handwritten “D,” indicating that he was among those who voted to deny review.

White House spokesman Ben LaBolt said the position taken in the memo to Marshall reflected the prevailing view of the law at the time.

Reflecting Marshall

During her confirmation hearing to be solicitor general, the federal government’s top Supreme Court advocate, Kagan said she was trying to reflect Marshall’s views when she evaluated so-called petitions for certiorari, or cert petitions. She called herself a “27-year-old pipsqueak” working for a “90- year-old giant in the law.”

“He was asking us, in the context in those cert petitions, to channel him and to think about what cases he would want the court to decide,” Kagan said. “And in that context, I think all of us were right to say, ‘Here are the cases which the court is likely to do good things with from your perspective, and here are the ones where they’re not.’”

Marshall was a civil rights icon before becoming the first black justice. He led the legal fight to dismantle the “separate but equal” regime in public education, arguing the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case.

As a justice, he opposed the death penalty and backed abortion rights and affirmative action. Kagan, now 50, clerked for Marshall during the court’s 1987-88 term and has described him as one of her heroes.

Clues to Kagan

The memos provide clues to Kagan’s potential approach as a justice. Much like Marshall, Kagan might find herself playing defense, at least in her first few years, working strategically to thwart the agenda of a more conservative majority.

Kagan on numerous occasions urged the justice to vote for so-called defensive denials, rejecting appeals from criminal suspects and defendants to prevent his more conservative colleagues from giving more power to police and prosecutors.

She urged rejection of an appeal from an Illinois man whose burglary conviction hinged on evidence discovered when he was stopped, ordered to lie down and searched by police. The search took place even though police lacked the “probable cause” required to make an arrest, Kagan said.

Kagan said she thought the court, if it heard the case, would uphold the conviction. That “would be an awful and perhaps quite consequential holding,” she wrote.

In recent years, Chief Justice John Roberts and four colleagues have joined forces in 5-4 decisions to strike down campaign finance regulations and limit shareholder lawsuits, as well as to protect gun owners’ rights.

B-Minus in Torts

The Marshall papers also include Kagan’s Harvard Law School transcript and glowing letters of recommendation to the justice from her professors. “She is soft-spoken and delightful to be with, but razor-sharp and iron-hard in intellectual give and take,” wrote one, Abram Chayes.

One professor referenced her transcript, which showed Kagan got off to a slow start as a law student. She received a B in criminal law and a B-minus in torts in the fall of her first year, later receiving predominantly A’s in classes including constitutional law.

“Whatever was in her way on those fall term exams, it wasn’t affecting her class performance even during the fall, and evidently was gone by exam time in May,” wrote Frank Michelman, who taught her in a spring property law course and said he had contact with his students starting in September.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This horror story of a SCOTUS nomination is as anti-Constitution as Obama . And both are socialists and Obama is even more then that a communist Marxist you name it and all things against our country.

I pray the Republicans in power will take a united stand against Kagan.

Krauthammer Says Not Using Term "Radical Islam" Like Not Using "Nazism" in WWII or "Communism" in Cold War

Charles Krauthammer reacting to Attorney General Eric Holder's unwillingness to use the term "Radical Islam" to describe what incites terrorists to attack the United States.

Krauthammer said it is absurd to not call the ideology behind the enemy what it is - "Radical Islam." In fact, he likened this politically-correct attitude displayed by Holder in a recent hearing to how absurd it would have been to never speak of "Communism" during the Cold War, or "Nazism" during World War II as the ideologies behind the enemy.


Wild Thing's comment........

Charlies is always good. I look forward to hearing what he has to say.

We are at War with Radical Islam! What's not to get about that? Hello Holder and Muslim Obama. grrrr

Look who's headlining Las Vegas tea-party convention!

Look who's headlining Las Vegas tea-party convention!

CNN's loss, tea partiers' gain seeking to unify movement in run up to fall election


He caused quite an uproar as a CNN anchor when he advocated for stronger U.S. border enforcement and when he refused to drop "birther" stories about challenges to President Obama's constitutional eligibility to hold office.

Now he's a headlining speaker at the second tea-party convention in July in Las Vegas, an event geared toward unifying the tea-party movement in the run-up to the fall congressional elections.

Lou Dobbs will rally tea partiers at the National Tea Party Unity Convention, July 15-17, at the Palazzo Las Vegas Resort in Nevada. The Tea Party Nation, along with ResistNet, Leadership Tea Party, the Tea Party Leadership Coalition and other groups, is organizing the event.

"Lou Dobbs is just an amazing guy," Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips told WND. "He stood up to the powers that be at CNN. He had a very high-rated show there, and he could have kept toeing the party line and doing what they wanted him to do. But he spoke up for America."

In 2009, Dobbs was voted to the top 10 list of the most important radio talk-show hosts in America by Talkers Magazine. He graduated from Harvard University with a degree in economics.

The award-winning journalist and best-selling author's refusal to drop "birther" stories about challenges to Obama's constitutional eligibility to hold office was a major source of contention with CNN management, leading the unconventional anchor to walk away from the network and more than $9 million in November, the New York Post reported.

The Post, citing anonymous sources, said the beginning of the end of a long-simmering dispute came in July last year, when CNN President Jonathan Klein told Dobbs' staff in a memo to stop reporting on lawsuits that demand Obama produce evidence he's a natural-born American citizen, as required by the Constitution.

Dobbs said several times he believed Obama was a U.S. citizen, and all he wanted was the president to produce a copy of his birth certificate, but the network clamped down on the host nonetheless.

Dobbs, who also hosts a nationally syndicated radio show, told his radio audience in July that "even though I said I believe the president is a citizen of the United States, I don't understand why he shouldn't produce a birth certificate. My God, you're talking about the third rail of American journalism, baby! That's it. I'm not going to back off."
"What makes Lou Dobbs so special," Farah writes, "is his independence and fearlessness. Dobbs clearly set his own agenda. He had no interest in the 'conventional wisdom' of his industry. Dobbs thinks like a real American newsman – a throwback to an age when journalists actually believed they were watchdogs of government and asked tough questions in the interests of the people."

The New York Post also noted that CNN had long been asking Dobbs to "tone down his harsh rhetoric" on issues such as immigration. For years, in his "Broken Borders" segment, Dobbs warned of the dangers of illegal immigration. Several campaigns were launched to convince CNN to "dump Dobbs."

Dobbs said advocacy groups that support illegal immigration pressed for him to be fired and had been "unrelenting in their propaganda."

Outspoken opponents of Dobbs include the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League, the National Council of La Raza, Internet media watchdog Media Matters and Geraldo Rivera of Fox News.

Very interesting, I was wondering how he was doing and what he was up to. I never heard his radio show, I am not sure if it is even in our area.

The Story Behind Who Waves The Flags Over I-5

The story behind who waves the flags over I-5

Passionate military spouse making a difference


If you ask anyone who knows her, Elisa Sukenick is a woman on a mission. Within minutes of a first introduction, you know that patriotism is something she takes very seriously. You also know that she stands behind every word she says - literally.

In 2003, on the day the troops first arrived in Iraq, Sukenick remembers hearing the news on the radio and being so overwhelmed that she needed to pull her car over. At the time she happened to be on the Center Drive Bridge in DuPont, or exit 118 on Interstate 5. As she sat in her car and prayed, she made a solemn promise to support the soldiers every way she could and to remind others to do the same.

On every major holiday (and sometimes just a sunny day), Sukenick heads to that same bridge, which she calls a living memorial for those serving in the military, and waves a flag at the cars passing below. More often than not, drivers honk, flash headlights, and wave back at her in order to show their mutual support of the troops. She often recruits people from her church and office to join her or the spouses of deployed soldiers, but in recent years, as the war has continued, participation has waned. However, for seven years Sukenick has personally upheld her promise to raise awareness and rarely misses a chance to stand on that bridge.

"I do this to support the men and women of the military - not for any political meaning. I never want this to be about politics," Sukenick said. "This is about loving this country and loving the soldiers." A few times, including once last month, soldiers have pulled off the exit to say thank you to her face. Many have a hard time expressing the gratitude they feel; some have just gotten out of their cars to shake her hand or give her a hug.

Sukenick's ties to the military started more than 40 years ago when she served as a nurse during the Vietnam War at Fort Gordon, Ga. Her husband, retired Staff Sgt. Jeff Sukenick, served 23 years in the Army. For more than two decades she was a civilian nurse at Madigan Army Medical Center, and now Sukenick works in the Lakewood office of the Allergy and Asthma Specialty Service, which happens to be run by three retired Army doctors. Needless to say, her employers encourage and appreciate Sukenick's extracurricular activity and often work with her to send care packages overseas and make donations to groups such as Operation Make a Soldier Smile.

"Whenever something positive is going on outside of the base, I can't help but wonder if Elisa has done it," said retired Col. W. Pierre Andrade, M.D. "This is just who she is. She has a big heart and is tireless about helping those in need, like the soldiers."

After each flag waving session, Sukenick gathers her volunteers together to pray. She thanks the Lord for sending her helpers and for keeping the soldiers safe. She asks that everyone come back again, and maybe they will, maybe they won't. Either way, she'll be there, rain or shine, waving her flag and reminding the drivers about the importance of supporting our troops.

"Islam Rising" Trailer

The film is titled Islam Rising: Wilders Warning to the West, and was made by small-time production company PRB Films, together with Christian Action Network.

Billboard says it all – “Islam Rising” coming soon.

The Christian Action Network is taking the fight against radical Islam to a new level by launching a massive campaign to put billboards up in South Carolina promoting its latest documentary. Each billboard simply states, “Islam Rising—Be Warned,” in reference to the title of the film, “Islam Rising: Geert Wilders’ Warning to the West.”

“Islam Rising” shows how radical Islam has made tremendous progress in conquering Europe, gaining footholds in communities and governments. To show how dangerous the situation has become, the film tells the story of Geert Wilders, a highly controversial member of the Netherlands’ parliament currently on trial for alleged hate speech for criticizing Islam.

Wilders lives in constant fear of his life for making a film titled “Fitna” showing how verses in the Koran, Islam’s holy book, are motivating the extremists to act with violence. For the first time in the United States, “Fitna” will be distributed as part of the “Islam Rising” documentary.

“We chose to put the first billboards up in South Carolina because of the terrorist training camp that currently exists in York,” Martin Mawyer, the President of the Christian Action Network said.

Mawyer was referring to a topic covered in his organization’s previous film, “Homegrown Jihad,” about how a group called the Muslims of the Americas has set up compounds throughout the country that are used to recruit and sometimes train followers.

Already, two billboards have been put on busy South Carolina interstates. The 14×46 displays are located on I-26 at mile-marker 125 and US 301N in Orangeburg.

CAN (Christian Action Network ) is currently negotiating for four more billboards to be put up in the state and billboards are set to go up in Tennessee within weeks.

For more information please go to the home page.

The premiere screening of ISLAM RISING will took place on May 1st, 2010 in the Rayburn House Office Building located at 50 Independence Avenue Southwest, Washington, DC 20515.

The Christian Action Network held it's much anticipated launch of 'ISLAM RISING: Geert Wilders' Warning to the West' in the prestigious Congressional Cannon Caucus Room on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on Saturday, May 1, 2010.

The premier screening followed a national prayer rally called 'May Day 2010: A Cry to God for a Nation in Distress' held in front of the Lincoln Memorial earlier in the day. Christian Action Network took part in the prayer rally along with many other Christian and Jewish organizations.

Christian Action Network would like to thank Congressman Ted Poe from Texas for sponsoring the Congressional room and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for approving the room for CAN to premiere its film 'ISLAM RISING.'

The remainder of the ISLAM RISING Screening Tour will be kicking off shortly.

The trailer to the new documentary from PRB Films.

Geert Wilders lives with a constant death threat over his head. Al-Qaeda has vowed to kill him. As a Dutch parliamentarian and outspoken critic of radical Islam, Mr. Wilders must travel with four bodyguards and sleep in a safe house, each and every night.

His short documentary film, Fitna set off a firestorm in the Middle East and Western Europe immediately upon its release. The controversial film showed how Islamic terrorists are following the literal dictations of the Quran.

That message can be seen here in this DVD, with striking clarity in film, photographs and a special message from Geert Wilders himself, who came to America with an urgent and terrifying warning: "Islam is on the verge of conquering the West."

I hope this movie will be played everywhere. Every politician in office and those running for office should be required to see this film. And take it to the campuses; and all trails across America, Canada et al.

I am sure the Muslim Obama doesn't like it at all.. I am surprised they are allowed to show this at the Rayburn House Office Building..I would think Obama and his goons would put a stop to it..everyone that does go please be very careful,these are animals we are dealing with..

Islam is genocide. It should be prosecuted everywhere as a crime against humanity.

Sarah Palin Statement to the Press Alongside AZ Gov. Brewer: "Mr. President, Do your Job. Secure our Border!"

Sarah Palin making a statement to the press alongside Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to announce their effort together to "Secure the Border Support Arizona."

Palin called on President Obama to, "Do your job - Secure our border!"

"This state has enacted a law. It mirrors the federal law which allows police to ask those they otherwise have stopped to provide a driver’s license or other verification of legal presence. I think for most American people, there reaction to this would be, “Oh, why haven’t the police already been doing that?” (applause) And, while Mexico’s president has began to crack down on the violent drug cartels and corruption in his own country, it’s time for the United States Government to enforce the rule of law as well… In unity we say, “Mr. President, do your job. Secure our border."


Sarah Palin and Gov. Jan Brewer Team Up in New Ad to "Secure the Border Support Arizona"

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today launched an effort aimed at educating the country on the federal governments failure to secure our nations southern border and its failure to address the human tragedy that is occurring as a result.

They also asked Americans to stand up and support Arizona. Key to the Secure the Border

Manhood Challenged Obama Continues to Blame Everything on Bush and Republicans

Obama: GOP Drove The Country Into A Ditch. 'Now They Want The Keys Back'

ABC News

Political Punch

In partisan remarks before the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) fundraising dinner this evening, President Obama said that Republicans are like bad drivers, who once drove the car into a ditch and now want the keys back.

“After they drove the car into the ditch, made it as difficult as possible for us to pull it back, now they want to keys back. No! You can’t drive. We don’t want to have to go back into the ditch. We just got the car out.”

Appearing before about 185 people at a fundraiser hauling in $1.3 million at the St. Regis hotel in New York City, the president painted the Republican party in unflattering light, as the party standing in the way of reform.

“They’ve done their best to gum up the works to make it look broken. To say no to every single thing,” he quipped.
For example the president said that despite economic improvements recently Republicans are still falling “all over themselves to argue otherwise.”
And on the Republican pledge to repeal health care, the president said he is not going to let that happen.
“Now they are talking about repealing when they take over in November,” Obama exclaimed, “I’m confident that as long as we’re able to get our message out, with your help the American people aren’t going to let that happen.”

The president claimed that the Democrats had led the “most productive legislative session in history” and that while “everybody’s kinda pooped” due to the lack of “help from the other side of the aisle,” that now is the time to push on.

“After a stormy time, people may be a little sea sick. But right now the waters are calm. There on the horizon we can see our destination. Now is not the time to lose heart. Now is not the time to get complacent. Now is the time to remind ourselves of what America is all about and return Democrats to the House of Representatives.”

The president had a little backward compliment for the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who had introduced him a few moments before.

“Nancy Pelosi, that’s one tough lady. And she’s so elegant. Even as she’s ripping your heart out. If you mess with her.”

Tickets for the fundraiser for House Democrats were $50,000 for couples attending the VIP reception, $15,000 per individual and $30,400 per couple for the dinner.

NOT Doing His Job Eric Holder on Arizona Law: "I have not read it yet" Yet He Is Against It!

Attorney General Eric Holder Testifies Before the House Judiciary Committee

WASHINGTON, D.C. on Thursday, May 13, 2010

Attorney General Eric Holder has discussed the Arizona law as being unconstitutional and contributing to racial profiling, yet he admits that he has not read it. Holder..... "I have not read it yet"


Wild Thing's comment........

What a total incompetent arrogant twit. Holder needs to be FIRED NOW.

“Well, what I’ve said is that I’ve not made up my mind. I’ve only made — made the comments that I’ve made on the basis of things that I’ve been able to glean by reading newspaper accounts” . .

There is Holder’s first mistake and it is really a stupid mistake — for anyone at anytime to take what is in “newspaper accounts” and base a decision on a law by what your read from a news reporter is totally insane.

Calling the AZ SB 1070 racist then admitting he hadn’t read it; Priceless.

Rep (Judge) Ted Poe is a breath of fresh air, and a fantastic representative from the great state of Texas.
We need more of him.

Perfect illustration to this regime - from the WH through both houses of congress - these people no longer read - or write - the bills they vote on and that we must then live by.

We saw that during the so-called health care bill debacle. Even at the end, they hadn't read it: "We need to vote on it so we can see what's in it," said mz nancy.

The bills are being written and read only by their staffs.

They are enjoying all the perks on their way to taking over this country - while passing their duties on to lackeys.

A Message From Major General John K. Singlaub, US. Army (Ret.)

Coalition to Salute America's Heroes

Dear Patriotic American,

My name is Major General John K. Singlaub, U.S. Army (Ret.).

I'm writing to you as Memorial Day approaches because I know, based on the causes you support, that you are a patriotic American. So I'm sure you'll be thinking about all the brave servicemen and women who have lost their lives for our country.

I parachuted into Nazi-occupied France during WWII to prepare French Resistance fighters for the Allied invasion, trained Chinese guerrillas for operations against the Japanese, ran covert operations against the North Koreans and the Chinese, and commanded all U.S. Special Operations Forces in Southeast Asia.

Now I’m working with the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes, an excellent nonprofit organization that provides emergency aid to our troops who have been severely wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Our wounded heroes must often wait 3 to 6 months, sometimes up to year or longer, to receive their first disability checks.

That's where the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes comes in to provide emergency financial assistance.
I'd like to take a moment and tell you about Sgt. James Sides, whose photo appears below.

Sgt. Sides suffered multiple strokes and countless bruises to his brain. His right arm was broken and his right lung collapsed.

James Sides' world was completely turned upside down upon returning home from Iraq.

Because of his injuries, James was unable to work. And the bills quickly piled up making it hard just to put food on the table for his family of five.

James Sides was a chopper pilot flying over the Tigris River in Baghdad...

...Suddenly, he found himself trapped in the helicopter, drowning in the river.

He was under water for nearly six minutes before being rescued.

Financially struggling and unable to work, James had to move in with his parents. The mounting debt and the pain of his injuries were making it extremely difficult for him to care for his three young boys.

This Memorial Day - if only for a day - you can make sure a wounded hero like James doesn't have to worry how he's going to feed his family.

As I've mentioned, the Coalition will be sending as many wounded heroes on our list as possible a $60 card to provide their families with food this Memorial Day.

James was extremely grateful for the support provided...

"The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is a great organization, and can help when you think it all is over. Every need I had, they were able to help with, and I am so thankful."

As you may have noticed in the news, there has been an uptick in the amount of injuries and fatalities in Afghanistan.

When these wounded soldiers return home, they're going to be calling us for help. I don't want to have to turn anyone down.

The need is great.

Will you hope the Coalition meet the need for our wounded heroes?

Major General John K. Singlaub
U.S. Army (Ret.).


Throughout the year, Coalition supporters will be providing emergency financial aid to disabled GIs through the following programs:

•Emergency Financial Assistance for severely wounded troops unable to afford groceries, clothes and other necessities, as well as those facing auto repossessions, utility cutoffs and other financial disasters.

•Wounded Troops Foreclosure Fund: Hundreds of burned, paralyzed or brain-damaged soldiers are in danger of losing their homes. These veterans are caught up in the nationwide foreclosure crisis, made worse by the immense financial strain they face because of their severe wounds. The Coalition has already made nearly 200 grants to wounded troops to help give thee heroes a place to lay their heads.

•Annual Road to Recovery Conferences: More than 300 disabled troops and their families have attended these unique, all-expense-paid educational events. Along with their spouses and children, wounded servicemen and women learn how to cope with their injuries, receive counseling and attend educational seminars. Several have even landed jobs at the event’s Career Fair.

•Homes for Heroes: The Coalition's donors have helped to build six new, disability-adapted homes for troops who have been blinded or paralyzed. Many other homes have been renovated to make them handicapped-accessible.


Wild Thing's comment........

I got this from Jim, it was in an email he received and I wanted to share it with all of you. I am so glad there are organizations like this one that are helping our troops.

This is their webstie if you would like to check it out.
I put part of the email above and also part of what the Major had to say at the website.

A little about Major General John K. Singlaub:

Poor Leadership in the 1970s handcuffed the CIA for decades to come
By Ilario Pantano ( Pantano is running for Congress in N. Carolina).........

I have known Pantano since his trial when many of us were supporting him at his mothers website. He was amazing and after the trial he wrote to me thanking me for the support and emails etc. ~ Wiild Thing

Ilario Pantano, a former Marine Corps officer, author, and deputy sheriff. Pantano’s service began at age 17 when he enlisted in the Marine Corps and became an elite scout sniper. Pantano returned to the service and led a platoon of infantry Marines in Fallujah through some of the fiercest fighting of the war. During combat operations, Pantano killed two terrorists and was later accused of murder. A military hearing dismissed all charges against him, but after receiving Jihadist death threats to his family, Pantano chose to resign from the Marine Corps. Since 2006 he has protected his local community in North Carolina as a Deputy Sheriff. After his honorable discharge, Pantano authored a book about his experiences.

Here is the artilce about Major General John K. Singlaub that Pantano wrote:

American Legion Magazine, May 2010

He was a living legend in the Special Forces community during VietNam...he was the father of the Studies and Observations Group(MACV-SOG)...they ran recon teams ‘across the wire’ i.e. into Laos and Cambodia along the Ho Chi Mihn trail...and were very effective in gathering NVA intel.

He once parachuted into Nazi-occupied France for Operation Jedburgh, former Office of Strategic Services (OSS) officer John K. Singlaub is eminently qualified to answer questions about the historical precedent of prosecuting intelligence officers during a time of war. If he or his men had been captured by the enemy, they would have been tortured and executed. Many of his friends suffered that fate. NOw a retired Army major general, Singlaub's career in intelligence began before the CIA or many of its officers were even born. Recently questioned about the idea of prosecuting agents during wartime, he paused and said, "If we prosecute anyone, we need to go after Jimmy Carter and his appointee to head (the) CIA, Adm. Stansfield Turner. (No one) has done us more harm. Turner gutted covert-action capabilities when he reduced the Directorate of Operations by a thousand experienced officers in 1977, and exposed the United States to crises which continue to haunt us 30 years later: Afghanistan and Iran."
Singlaub, who helped organize the French resistance in support of the Normandy invasion and ran intelligence operations in Manchuria and, later, special ops in Vietnam. "At the time, Carter wanted to rely on reconnaissance satellites and electronic surveillance. He was looking for white-glove ways to combat Soviet-sponsored subversion of the Third World, which is how we got into trouble in Iran. CIA officers in France actually had agents inside the operation of Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini. The station chief warned that successful penetration would be compromised and that this was the wrong time to make Turner's drastic cuts. 'We've got operations going!' was the objection. The response from Washington: 'Let the French handle it.'"
Former deputy national counterintelligence executive and current professor of intelligence studies Kenneth deGraffenreid, a retired Navy captain, recounts the 1970s cultural shift that bastardized the uniformed and clandestine services in the wake of Watergate, campus protests and the Church/Pike committees. Carter "ran his '76 campaign against the 'troika of evil' - Watergate, Vietnam, and the CIA," deGraffenreid recalls. "We saw it again in 2008, when Obama ran against Bush, Iraq, and the CIA. I pray the results of that chronic naiveté are better this time around, but with SEALs being prosecuted, terrorists suing federal officials, ringleaders like Kalid Sheik Mohammed being tried in New York instead of (before) tribunals, and CIA officers prosecuted at home and overseas, where 23 were convicted in Italy, I'm just not convinced."
The sense of déjà vu strikes Singlaub as tragic. "Carter favored sterile forms of intelligence like satellites, things that couldn't blow up in his face," he said. "The rest, he chopped. Apologists will tell you Carter's cuts were about cleaning out the bad eggs. Tell that to the Navy SEALs, the Green Berets and all of the other paramilitary forces that Carter wanted to either cut, or in the case of the SEALs, eliminate completely."
Singlaub's 35-year military career included vanguard action and command of various intelligence and special-ops missions in World War II, China, Korea, Vietnam and Latin America. Today, the 88-year old Legionnaire still lectures at the advanced Special Forces course.
Carter was "simply not comfortable with unconventional operations and deemed them too politically risky," Singlaub says. 'Desert One' (the failed mission to rescue hostages from Iran) would prove beyond a doubt the degree to which he let our capabilities atrophy.

.... Thank you Jim for sending this to me.

Nobody Beats Kilroy Anywhere! by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired


Nobody Beats Kilroy Anywhere!

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

My first brush with “Kilroy” was in 1950 as a youngster in Athens, Greece (long before socialist idiots took over). At the Anglo-American School children of the recently won war, multi-national (oh, excuse me, multi-cultural although we didn’t know it then) expatriates attended classes; and, it was there that I first met “Kilroy.” Most were American children but also included were Brits, French, Indians, Turks, Egyptians, Italians, Spaniards and others from various embassies, military services and missionaries.

Kilroy was both legend and fad, the small drawing and inscription was ubiquitous and in the most unusual places. It was found on blackboards, the walls of restroom stalls, playground walls and basketball backboards. At that early age, it bugged me that “Kilroy” had been someplace ahead of me, but I soon got in the spirit although like my cohorts was too young to grasp its significance. It didn’t take long before I too would surreptitiously sketch Kilory on some vacant and obvious spot.

Decades later we had the privilege of riding the USS Iwo Jima on its maiden voyage from its birthplace at the shipyards Pascagoula, Ms. to Pensacola, Florida. There were about two thousand guests aboard that day and many sat on the flight deck to enjoy the sun and balmy breeze. As we strolled past one lady with leg in a cast, there, standing out from the hundreds of inscriptions was, you guessed it, “Kilroy Was Here.”

Most who read this remember well how very important “Kilroy Was Here” was to GIs in WWII, and Korea. It was less a symbol of the Viet-Nam era but survives today in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The best legend, and probably the closest to the truth of how it began is that James Kilroy, a rivet inspector on ships during WWII, to prove that he had inspected would scribble “Kilroy was here” throughout the ship.

Often ships were sent to sea before painting or cleaning up (one Liberty ship was actually built in four days; try that today!), so GIs and sailors found the graffiti in impossible places. Soon Kilroy became the super GI who always got there first, and survived. He began to appear in the most unlikely places such as enemy beaches, the Arc De Triomphe and much later is reported to have been scrawled in the dust on the moon. As Owen Edwards said in the Smithsonian; “‘Kilroy Was Here’ appeared almost everywhere American soldiers went.” There is one story of Stalin after emerging from a “porta-potti” (if one can believe they had such things during WWII) at the Malta Summit, asked, “Who is Kilroy?”

One may wonder why this crude drawing and scrawled words become the super GI of WWII, Korea, the Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan. We know how it probably started but why the “movement?” The Kilroy phenomenon was a manifestation of the absolutely amazing and indomitable sense of American humor. GI's have always been able to find something funny to say and/or do to break the stress of combat or boredom in a world gone mad. No matter how bad it got, no matter what the danger, no matter how exhausted, scared or fed up they got, Kilroy was always there first, and survived.

Finally, "Kilroy Was Here" was an effort by millions of GI's to be a little rebellious in a life almost totally controlled by others. "Kilroy Was Here" persisted in spite of repeated futile efforts stamp him out. A number of area commanders issued orders to eradicate Kilroy graffiti but consistent with the attitude that animated Kilroy, the orders were greeted with monumental if not deliberate indifference.

Like youngsters of every generation, GI's of WWII were strikingly similar in their insistence on craving a piece individuality, and just like “pants on the ground” and the pierced/tattooed generation of today, millions seized Kilroy as a mascot if not a manifesto of their individuality and freedom of expression!

These were not warriors but ordinary “kids” caught up in forces far beyond their control. But they became warriors! By 1945 they were the most skilled combatants in the world although they never thought of themselves as such. Most were just guys who wanted to get the job done and go back to the farm, town or city they called “home.”

Kilroy still lives everywhere GIs passed, including courthouses, places of worship, markets, and other places limited only by ones imagination.

The generation that made Kilroy famous is now marching double time toward its eternal reward at the rate of more than a thousand members per day; it will not be too long before they are gone. They left behind freedom and a rich heritage that will live on in their legacy of sacrifice, bravery and wit. The torch has now been passed to a new generation of American servicemen and women who are equal to any challenge, adversity and enemy. If politicians would but listen to and permit them, they can and will keep this nation safe and free for another generation, until their time too has passed; that is, unless they get caught up in exercising “courageous restraint” and get themselves and us killed.

Static memorials grace Washington, State Capitols and towns across the country. The memorials honor those who served and too many whose lives were irreversibly altered or cut short in the interest of freedom, (even the freedom to give FREEDOM up for a “government handout”). Such memorials are well intended and fitting.

One long overlooked way of memorializing the “Greatest Generation” would be to issue a “Kilroy Was Here” postage stamp. The GIs of WWII and their successors have served in every clime, place and condition. In most instances postage stamps followed them and from those locales GIs have written millions of letters home. In a sense Kilroy is analogous to the ubiquity of military service and there could be no more unique or better way to honor or pay a lasting tribute to them and all who serve.

My good friend Pat Tillery, webmaster of, has long championed the notion of a stamp that commemorates Kilroy that would honor all who served and who serve today! Join the effort!

Feds Tell Court They Can Decide What You Eat

Feds tell court they can decide what you eat

'Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish'


Attorneys for the federal government have argued in a lawsuit pending in federal court in Iowa that individuals have no "fundamental right" to obtain what food they choose.

The brief was filed April 26 in support of a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund over the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's ban on the interstate sale of raw milk.

"There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds," states the document signed by U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose, assistant Martha Fagg and Roger Gural, trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.
"Plaintiffs' assertion of a 'fundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families' is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish," the government has argued.

"S. 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the U.S.," critiqued Steve Green on the Food Freedom blog. "It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money."

The plan is sponsored by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., who explains the legislation "is a critical step toward equipping the FDA with the authorities and funding it needs to regulate what is now a global marketplace for food, drugs, devices and cosmetics."

Now it's statism on our plate! Mark Levin's manifesto – 'Liberty and Tyranny' – provides the antidote to its growing stranglehold.

His website explains, "The legislation requires foreign and domestic food facilities to have safety plans in place to prevent food hazards before they occur, increases the frequency of inspections. Additionally, it provides strong, flexible enforcement tools, including mandatory recall. Most importantly, this bill generates the resources to support FDA food-safety activities."

The proposal cleared the U.S. House last year but has been languishing in the Senate because of a full calendar of projects. It creates a long list of new requirements for food-producing entities to meet the demands of the secretary of agriculture. It is expected to be the subject of discussion in coming days.

The Iowa case alleges the federal restrictions on raw milk are a violation of the U.S. Constitution, according to a report at Natural News.

The federal attorneys want the case dismissed.

"The interest claimed by plaintiffs could be framed more narrowly as a right to 'provide themselves and their families with the foods of their own choice,'" the government document states. But the attorneys say that right doesn't exist.
"The FDA essentially believes that nobody has the right to choose what to eat or drink," said the Natural News site, which explains it covers topics that allow individuals to make positive changes in their health, environmental sensitivity and consumer choices.
"You are only 'allowed' to eat or drink what the FDA gives you permission to. There is no inherent right or God-given right to consume any foods from nature without the FDA's consent."

The Natural News report continued,

"The state, in other words, may override your food decisions and deny you free access to the foods and beverages you wish to consume. And the state may do this for completely unscientific reasons – even just political reasons – all at their whim."

The report cited an increasing level of frustration on the part of the federal government because of tactics including buying "cow shares" in which a consumer drinks milk from a cow he partly owns, or "buying clubs."

"This arrangement drives the FDA absolutely batty because it bypasses their authority and allows free people to engage in the free sales of raw dairy products produced on small family farms," Natural News said.

The report blames the aggressive campaign against raw milk on large commercial dairy interests, "because it threatens the commercial milk business."

The reason cannot be safety, the report said, since a report from the Weston A. Price Foundation revealed that from 1980 to 2005 there were 10 times more illnesses from pasteurized milk than from raw milk.

The federal government attorneys say the FDA's goal is to prevent disease, and that's why the "ban on the interstate sale of unpasteurized milk" was adopted.

The attorneys conceded that states ordinarily are expected to regulate intrastate activity but noted, "it is within HHS's authority … to institute an intrastate ban as well."

Natural News reported the ban could be seen as violating the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which leaves to states all powers not specifically designated in the Constitution for the federal body.

In fact, according to the Wisconsin State Journal, lawmakers there have adopted a bill, with the governor's support, that would allow farmers to sell raw milk directly to consumers.

The move puts Wisconsin in position to be the 20th state to allow direct sales of raw milk. Another handful of states allow retail sales


Wild Thing's comment........


This is insanity out of control. When the heck did Idiocracy become a reality?

This incident should remove all doubt that liberal progressives believe that there is no such thing as an "unalienable" right, and that every American is simply property of the state.

FBI Searches Watertown, Brookline In NYC Bomb Plot As Terror and Immigration Are Tied Together!!!

This man was taken into custody by federal agents just before 6 a.m. Thursday on Waverly Street in Watertown.
Barbara Lacerra/WBZ


FBI Searches Watertown, Brookline In NYC Bomb Plot

Boston News

The FBI executed search warrants at a home in Watertown and a gas station in Brookline Thursday morning in connection with the attempted bombing in Times Square earlier this month.


The search is ongoing in four states – Massachusetts, Maine, New York and New Jersey.

Three people were arrested.

Authorities said there is "no known immediate threat to the public or any active plot against the United States."

At an afternoon news conference, Gov. Deval Patrick added that there was "no immediate threat" to people or property in Massachusetts.


Patrick confirmed that two of the three arrests were in the Boston area.

A spokesperson for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told WBZ a third person was arrested in Maine.

Two of the men had a "direct connection" to suspect Faisal Shahzad, a top Massachusetts law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

All three have been charged with immigration violations, which are not criminal charges. They are now in the custody of ICE.

Law enforcement officials have confirmed the names of the two men arrested in Massachusetts are Pir Khan and Aftab Khan.

While Pir Khan was arrested outside the Doubletree Hotel in Allston, officials will not confirm that Aftab Khan was the man taken into custody at a home in Watertown.

A spokesperson for the Doubletree on Soldier's Field Road tells WBZ that troopers were outside the hotel this morning, which isn't that unusual. But around 8 a.m., a cab pulled in to the area and troopers arrested the driver.

Khan works for Swadi Cab Inc., which leases its vehicles through MetroCab. The owner of the company, Sher Wahab, tells WBZ that Khan has been a driver with Swadi for eight or nine years. And for that time, he's never had a problem with him.

Wahab said he is shocked by the news.

Khan's cab has been impounded by police.

The second suspect was taken into custody at 39 Waverly Ave. in Watertown, who, according to a source, is a "key player" in the investigation.

Another man was questioned at the gas station in Brookline. That man was later released.


Barbara Lacerra told WBZ she saw the arrest unfold from her home nearby at about 5:45 a.m.

"(We) heard the FBI guy yell 'FBI don't blah, blah move!'"
Lacerra said several FBI agents with guns blocked off the road, went into the two-family home and took out a young man in shackles and handcuffs. She noted that he was quiet and cooperative.

Another witness who lives across the street told WBZ's Kathy Curran that boxes of paper, a computer and bags of money were also removed from the home.


A law enforcement official told CBS News the searches are targeting money remitters - the money trail - and do not, at this time, point to any co-conspirators with Faisal Shahzad, the lone man charged in the plot at this point.

The working theory is that the remitters were merely moving money and have no complicity in the plot.

According to CBS News Justice Department and Homeland Security correspondent Bob Orr, "it is possible they may have helped Shahzad move money without any knowledge of his plans... making them 'unwitting participants.'"

"It's also possible they had some foreknowledge, and that's what's under investigation."
"The key point is... none of this is conclusive... and investigators do not yet know if the three are complicit in the plot."


FBI agents and police were also at a Mobil gas station on Harvard Street in Brookline, about one block from Coolidge Corner.

Police told WBZ's Karen Anderson they closed the Cypress Auto Mart around 6 a.m., but they would not say anything about what's going on there.

Sources told her an employee was questioned inside for several hours after he came to open up the store.

Investigators also searched his car, which is registered to the address of the home being searched in Watertown.

He was not taken into custody and was released just after 11 a.m. The owner's brother picked him up and drove off with no comment.

The employee also just returned from a trip to Pakistan to visit his family.

Shahzad is a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent and is believed to have spent five months there recently.

Elias Audy, the gas station owner, would not speak to reporters, but his niece told WBZ's Beth Germano the investigation is not connected to his business and that authorities are focusing on the employee.


From the Boston Herald

Governor’s Councilor Marilyn Devaney, who lives around the corner from the home raided this morning, said, “This is so scary. This whole laissez-faire immigration thing is putting everyone at risk. We’re just fortunate that we’re getting these people before they’re successful. Here we are just six miles from Boston.”

Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Warren T. Bamford said searches are being conducted at locations through the Northeast.

“We can confirm that search warrants have been executed in several locations in the Northeast in connection with the investigation into the attempted Times Square bombing,” Bamford said. “A number of individuals encountered during the searches were taken into federal custody for alleged immigration violations.“

Bamford said the searches “are the product of evidence that has been gathered in the investigation subsequent to the attempted Times Square bombing and do not relate to any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States.”


4 Scary Ways Terror and Immigration Are Tied Together

FOX News

By Peter Huessy

( Peter Huessy is Senior Defense Consultant at the National Defense University Foundation.)

Our own immigration system is so riddled with holes that terrorists can drive into our country in an explosive laden truck just like the Times Square bomb suspect did.

We can only hope that the Times Square near-bombing will focus our attention on the conventional wisdom surrounding from the left surrounding immigration reform. First there's the belief that no attempt at reform can succeed without a generous amnesty. Then, there's the belief that immigration "coyotes" and other scam artists do not associate with terrorists. And finally, there's the misguided belief that our relatively open border with Mexico, and thus by default the rest of the world, is no big deal, and can be resolved through the simple act of issuing more work visas.

In my own conversations with experts on immigration, the drug cartels and terrorism, it has always been an article of faith that while drug cartels certainly use illegal immigration as a conduit for smuggling drugs, terrorists are not welcome among the coyotes that smuggle migrants and vice versa. But that is changing.

In the laptop captured from a top FARC commander, evidence was found of links between Chavez and Russia (from where weapons and explosives would come and be transferred) and Hezbollah and drug syndicates (where FARC would help Hezbollah blow up pipelines carrying Mexican oil for America).

I'm not concerned about the links between terrorism and immigration because it's the issue of the day. And it's not because Arizona has passed legislation that enables local and state law enforcement to actually “enforce” a 1940 federal statute dealing with whether legal residents but not citizens of the U.S. have to carry “papers” (they do). Nor am I focused on it because the Senate is, once again, considering bringing up "compressive immigration reform."

No, the events that have made me even more concerned about immigration are four-fold.

1. Dozens of bomb plotters in attacks on the United States have used the immigration system to marry women here in America and thus gain citizenship faster and with less scrutiny than they otherwise would. This includes the bombing suspect arrested for attempting to blow up people in New York City and Times Square, a point made eloquently and most recently by Michelle Malkin.

2. In 2008, I testified before the Maryland State Assembly that driver licenses should not be given to those illegally in America. Remember Muhammad Atta had a driver’s license and when stopped in North Carolina for a traffic violation, the local police officer could not access immigration records to determine that Atta was here on an expired visa.

After testifying, I remained outside the hearing room and listened to a local Montgomery County representative to the Annapolis Assembly being interviewed by Mexican television about the oppressive nature of such a law as forbidding those illegally in the U.S. from getting driver licenses. She told a Mexican television reporter that there was really no such thing as an illegal immigrant: “They are all here simply waiting to adjust their status."

3. Then there is the news that Syria, probably via Iran and North Korea, has transferred Scud missiles to Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based terrorist subsidiary of Iran. Remember, Scud missiles used to be what we thought about when thinking about missile threats from Saddam’s Iraq and Kim’s North Korea. It appears everyone has graduated—Kim to long range rockets and Hezbollah to Scuds!

4. Finally, there's the likelihood that Iran will get a nuclear weapon and transfer it to a specially created and trained terror group to smuggle it into the United States. Open borders make that an easier job. Scam marriages do too.

So, here we are congratulating ourselves for capturing the Times Square suspect when our own immigration system is so riddled with holes that terrorists can drive right across our borders in an explosive laden truck and with a driver’s license secured in any number of states blind to current threats. And we congratulate ourselves when our supposed potential peace partners, with whom were are so eager to engage, are either sending rockets to terrorists or building nuclear bombs destined for an American city.

Why then are Washington elites hell-bent on approving amnesty provisions as a part of what is known as “compressive immigration reform?" What part of “terror-sponsoring state,” “terrorist,” “open borders” and “bomb” do they not understand? And what do we make of the common complaint that we only wish to secure our borders and make our immigration system synonymous with “common sense” because we are a racist country inhospitable to ethnic groups other than “Anglos?" God, has anyone who claims this actually walked around any American city recently? Amnesty is objectionable because the person who gets to decide whether or not 16 million estimated illegal immigrants get to stay in this country are the illegal immigrants themselves!! They are, of course, “just adjusting their status."

Speaking of the millions of people already here illegally, David Broder quoted the late Senator Kennedy as being dumbfounded about why people could not understand why the illegal immigrants already here in the USA had to stay here. The assumption: we cannot send them home or they will not go home. And so if they wish to stay here in America, well, they get to stay here. And if jihadists intent on blowing us all to kingdom come, want to come here from rural Pakistan and marry an American citizen—well aren’t we all in favor of multiculturalism? (Parenthetically, what skills are we adding to the American workforce by such an immigration policy?)

Immigration policy is now, by default, no longer a question of whom we as Americans desire to accept into our country. It has become a question of who wants to come to America whether we like it or not. And that is why so many citizens of this country are supportive of the Arizona law and against the amnesty provisions of past immigration reform laws. We want our sovereignty back. We want to decide who gets to be future Americans—because we value American citizenship and believe it should not simply be given away, either through amnesty, sham marriages or some wacky notion of multiculturalism. And we care who comes in and out of our country. Especially if they are armed. Armed with a bomb. Or a nuclear weapon. Feeling safe?


Wild Thing's comment........

Hmm, arrested on suspected immigration violations. Paging Arizona, paging Arizona.

“Governor’s Councilor Marilyn Devaney, who lives around the corner from the home raided this morning, said, “This is so scary. This whole laissez-faire immigration thing is putting everyone at risk.”

AMEN, lady!

And the last part of this post from FOX News is an awesome article about this.

Adding in to all of this, we have Obama will cut $42 million in funding to New York City just days after the attempted bombing in Times Square.

“It’s an absolute direct slap in the face of the people of New York,” said Rep. Peter King.

OMG Plans Continue For Mosque to be Built Near Ground Zero

Sean Hannity has Brigitte Gabriel and Mike Ghouse on to discuss the outrage over plans for a mosque to be built near Ground Zero.

Brigitte Gabriel pointed out concerns over the fact that the father of the Imam that would run the mosque was a member of the 'Muslim Brotherhood' along with Ayman al-Zawahiri, the second man of Al-Qaeda.


Hello New Yorkers and all Americans out there. Save the date, June 6, 2010 and come to Ground Zero for a rally to stop the spread of Islam in the US. It is time that this little known news item gets blasted into the public arena.

The background information begins on 9/11 at 45 Park Place, the Burlington Building, where a portion of one of the planes, either the Flight 11 or 175, crashed through the roof as 80 employees were seeking safety in the basement. For several years the owner unsuccessfully tried to sell the building for $18 million. Finally, in June 2009, the property was purchased by an investment firm called “Soho Properties,” with one of the individual investors listed as the Cordoba Initiative, a name militant Muslims often say when they refer to the glory of the Muslim empire during their occupation of Spain.

Further investigation shows that this “interfaith group” was founded by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is the spiritual leader of another nearby mosque, Al Farah at 245 West Broadway. The records show that the 61-year old Iman paid $4.85 million, all in cash. With an additional investment of $150 million the Park Place property’s 50,000 square feet of air rights could be developed into a 13-story full-fledged Islamic Mosque and Community Center, It’s Feisal’s dream that this could potentially become one of the largest NYC mosques to serve the ever-growing Muslim population. Presently, the building is legally being used every Friday as an extension of Imam Feisal’s mosque, as overflow prayer space to accommodate the growing Muslim community in NYC.

At a May 5 meeting of the Lower Manhattan community board the project was supported including an opening date of September 11, 2011, which will be the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

One has to wonder what this board was thinking when they gave their approval or why it has been encouraged by city officials and the surrounding neighborhood. It is apparent that Mayor Bloomberg’s Director of the Office of Immigrant Affairs, Fatima Ahama, Imam Feisal’s wife, Daisy Khan, who serves on the advisory team for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, and Lynn Rasic, a spokesperson for the memorial, all are speaking out in support “The idea of a cultural center that will strengthen ties between Muslims and people of all faiths and backgrounds.”

There will be a rally on June 6, D-Day 1944, which is being hosted by Pamela Geller, Executive Director of the human rights group ‘Stop Islamization of America (SIOA)’ and is joined by ACT for America, Manhattan; Z Street; Freedom Defense Initiative; Faith Freedom International, No Mosque at Ground Zero and many more to be announced. Miss Geller has commented: “What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in the eye of America. The date for this rally has been chosen symbolically as the day Americans acted against the evil of Nazism. Now it is time for Americans to stand up against the evil of Islamic jihad terrorism and Islamic supremacism.” She continues by saying:

The only Muslim center that should be built in the shadow of the WTC is one that is devoted to expunging the Koran and all Islamic teachings of the violent jihad that they prescribe, as well as all hateful texts and incitement to violence.”

Questions need to be asked by New Yorkers like: Where did Imam Feisel get $4.85 million in cash to buy this property? Where will the $150 investments come from? It is a significant fact that a good percentage of the hundreds of mosques being built or already built in the USA during the past two decades have had support from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Iran, all with radical Islamic activists. In addition to these sites being places of worship, they also act as a center for the distribution of propaganda literature, written in Arabic and Urdu and proven to be radical in content. You do not have to go too far to already see this. In Brooklyn, Queens, and Detroit the mosques are growing. Recently, the government discontinued work on a major Iranian-funded mosque and center in NYC that had been quietly operating under the auspices of Pahlavi Foundation.

So, come to this rally on June 6 and stand with those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and those who see the slow creeping of Islamic Sharia laws quietly coming to America!


Wild Thing's comment........

This is just sooo shocking to me that they would not only do such a thing but that whoever came up with this idea was not shot down immediately! I know if they had sugested it to me I would have laid into them like they had never been before.

This is a DISGRACE!!!!

This is definately a slap in the face to Americans from that Muslim in the WH.

Third Grader Punished With One Week Detention For Having ONE Piece of Camdy At Lunch!

Jolly Rancher lands Brazos ISD third-grader in detention for a week

ORCHARD, Texas – A third-grader at Brazos Elementary was given a week’s detention for possessing a Jolly Rancher.

School officials in Brazos County are defending the seemingly harsh sentence. The school’s principal and superintendent said they were simply complying with a state law that limits junk food in schools.

But the girl’s parents say it’s a huge overreaction.

“I think it’s stupid to give a kid a week’s worth of detention for a piece of candy,” said Amber Brazda, the girl’s mother. "The whole thing was just ridiculous to me."

Leighann Adair, 10, was eating lunch Monday when a teacher confiscated the candy. Her parents said she was in tears when she arrived home later that afternoon and handed them the detention notice.

According to the disciplinary referral, she would be separated from other students during lunch and recess through Friday.

Jack Ellis, the superintendent for Brazos Independent School District, declined an on-camera interview. But he said the school was abiding by a state guideline that banned “minimal nutrition” foods.

“Whether or not I agree with the guidelines, we have to follow the rules,” he said.

The state, however, gives each school discretion over how to enforce the policy. Ellis said school officials had decided a stricter punishment was necessary after lesser penalties failed to serve as a deterrent.

Ellis said failing to adhere to the state’s guidelines could put federal funding in jeopardy.

According to the Texas Department of Agriculture’s website, “The Texas Public School Nutrition Policy (TPSNP) explicitly states that it does not restrict what foods or beverages parents may provide for their own children's consumption.”

Brazos Elementary Principal Jeanne Young, said the problem, in this instance, was that the candy was provided by another student – not the girl’s parents.

The girl’s mother said the incident has taught her daughter a lesson, but not the one her teachers intended.

“I told her, ‘Leighann, unfortunately you’re learning very young that life’s not fair,'” Brazda said.

That's not the lesson, lady.

The lesson is: Never Trust Hippies Running the Government.

The school’s principal and superintendent said they were simply complying with a state law that limits junk food in schools.

My country has become a bad, 1960s "B" movie. Aren't the people currently running the country the same morons we saw running around naked and covered with mud at Woodstock

Jolly Ranchers are hardly junk food. They’re probably the least unhealthy candy.

But that’s quite beside the point—even if the student had a Snickers (Gasp! The horror!), that’s no reason to treat this little girl like this. sheesh!

Kagan Shielded Saudis From 9/11 Lawsuit and Komrade Kagan By Mark Alexander

Kagan shielded Saudis from 9/11 lawsuit

Sided with kingdom in case brought by victims of terror attacks


Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, Elena Kagan, helped shield Saudi Arabia from lawsuits filed by families of 9/11 victims seeking to target countries and leaders who helped finance al-Qaida.

"I'm very concerned about her views on executive power and her views with respect to the separation of power," Stephen A. Cozen, the lead attorney in the case for 9/11 victims, told WND.
"I believe she must be asked questions about whether or not citizens who are attacked inside the U.S. have the right to file suits domestically against terrorism financiers," said Cozen, the founder and chairman of Cozen O'Connor, a Philadelphia-based law firm with 24 offices throughout the country.

Cozen recounted to WND an April 2009 meeting he held with Kagan to present the case for his clients – thousands of family members and others affected by the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks who sought damages from the Saudi kingdom, Saudi high commissioners and the country's rulers.

Cozen's suit documented evidence the Saudis funneled millions of dollars to al-Qaida prior to the 9/11 attacks and that the kingdom continued to finance terrorism thereafter.

He was arguing to bring his case to the Supreme Court after it was dismissed by a lower court and an appeals circuit, which had cited the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976 as barring lawsuits against leaders of foreign governments.

Cozen, however, documented how both the Supreme Court and U.S. government briefs allowed for such lawsuits in the past, finding the Immunities Act did not hold in similar cases.

Kagan's friend-of-the-court brief argued Cozen's case would interfere with U.S. foreign policy. She urged the Supreme Court not to hear the case.

In her brief, Kagan acknowledged inconsistencies with the lower court rulings and even conceded there were legitimate questions about whether the Immunities Act should apply in Cozen's case for the 9/11 victims.

Still, she sided with the Saudis, who had presented their case directly to Kagan that the terror victims lawsuit was harming U.S.-Saudi relations.

The Supreme Court sided with Kagan and refused to hear the case.

Kagan's brief prompted Sens. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to submit a bill to amend the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

Specter at the time strongly denounced Kagan.

"She wants to coddle the Saudis," he said.
Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband was killed in the 9/11 attacks, told the Philadelphia Inquirer last year, "I find this reprehensible."
"One would have hoped that the Obama administration would have taken a different stance than the Bush administration, and you wonder what message this sends to victims of terrorism around the world," she said.

Cozen, meanwhile, told WND he believes Kagan is "eminently qualified" for the Supreme Court. Still, he said he is concerned about her decision in his case and hew views on the separation of powers.

WND recently reported Kagan has advocated for an increased presidential role in regulation, which, she conceded, would make such affairs more and more an extension of the president's own policy and political agenda.

" The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not ... would make the judiciary a despotic branch. ... [T]he germ of dissolution of our federal government is ... the federal Judiciary ... working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped. ... They are construing our constitution from a co-ordination of a general and special government to a general and supreme one alone." --Thomas Jefferson

Obama has nominated his Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.

Since this is a lifetime appointment, we should consider the implications for our Constitution and for liberty.

Will this Ivy League academic be an advocate for Essential Liberty and Rule of Law, or does she subscribe to the errant notion of a "living constitution"?

According to Obama, Kagan "is widely regarded as one of the nation's foremost legal minds," and he's right -- if by "widely" he means among elitist Leftists.

In fact, Obama's assessment of Kagan mirrored that of her über-Leftist Princeton prof Sean Wilentz, under whose tutelage Kagan wrote her glowing thesis on socialism in the early 20th century. "Kagan," said Wilentz, "is one of the foremost legal minds in the country."

In her thesis, Kagan lamented the fact that free enterprise overcame socialism and concluded, "A coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness."

"Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force?" wondered Kagan. "Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nation's established parties? Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself..."

In her thesis, Kagan lamented the fact that free enterprise overcame socialism and concluded, "In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness. ... In unity lies their only hope."

Ah, yes, the "hope and change" necessary for Obama to make good on his promise to "fundamentally transform the United States of America."

Just as Obama was mentored by Marxists, Kagan has been steeped in socialist doctrine, and is no doubt rejoicing in the resurgence of socialism in the U.S. under the leadership of Obama and his water boys in the legislative and judicial branches.

As for her qualifications for a seat on the Supreme Court, Obama insists that Kagan "is an acclaimed legal scholar with a rich understanding of constitutional law."

In fact, she has exactly no judicial experience and very limited litigation experience. Legal authority Ken Klukowski writes that Kagan is an ideal nominee for Obama: "She's a liberal without a paper trail."

Sounds like the Obama model.

Most of Kagan's experience is academic (read: "deficient"), at the University of Chicago Law School and as dean of Harvard Law School, where she attempted to boot military recruiters off campus at the height of the war in Iraq. Her reason for this frontal assault on our nation's ability to defend itself was the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which Kagan called "a profound wrong -- a moral injustice of the first order."

Even The Washington Post concludes that her qualifications "can only be called thin," noting further, "even her professional background is thin."

While media profiles of Kagan paint her, predictably, as a moderate "consensus-builder," Kagan is, in fact, a genuine, hardcore Leftist, a former legal counsel to the Clintonista regime who began her political career in earnest as a staffer for liberal Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis's presidential run back in 1988.

Her liberal roots were firmly entrenched by the time she graduated from Princeton in 1981, the year Ronald Reagan took office. A New York Times profile of Kagan notes, "On Election Night, she drowned her sorrow in vodka and tonic as Ronald Reagan took the White House."

More recently, the thin legal trail she has established as Obama's Solicitor to the Supreme Court raises serious questions about Kagan's commitment to the plain language of the First Amendment.

In a 1996 law review article, Kagan wrote that the "redistribution of speech" is not "itself an illegitimate end," which is another way of saying that the court has a responsibility to level the playing field for various ideas, including the Internet, talk radio, etc.

She recently offered a similar argument before the High Court in regard to the government's authority to regulate print materials under campaign finance laws, a notion that Chief Justice John Roberts concluded, "As a free-floating test for First Amendment coverage, that [proposition] is startling and dangerous."
Says Kagan, "Constitutional rights are a product of constitutional text as interpreted by the courts and understood by the nation's citizenry and its elected representatives."

She undoubtedly came to that errant conclusion while clerking for Justice Thurgood Marshall, of whom she later wrote admiringly, "In Justice Marshall's view, constitutional interpretation demanded, above all else, one thing from the courts: it demanded that the courts show a special solicitude for the despised or disadvantaged. It was the role of the courts, in interpreting the Constitution, to protect the people who went unprotected by every other organ of government -- to safeguard the interests of people who had no other champion. The Court existed primarily to fulfill this mission. ... The Constitution, as originally drafted and conceived, was 'defective.' The Constitution today ... contains a great deal to be proud of. But the credit does not belong to the Framers. It belongs to those who refused to acquiesce in outdated notions of 'liberty,' 'justice,' and 'equality.' Our modern Constitution is [Marshall's]."

Setting aside her utter disdain for our Constitution and its authors, Kagan is flat-out wrong about the role of the High Court. It exists to safeguard the unbiased application of our Constitution's original intent.

In 1987, the year before Kagan clerked for Marshall, he delivered a lecture entitled, "The Constitution: A Living Document," in which he argued that the Constitution must be interpreted in a way that succumbs to the contemporary political, moral and cultural climate.

That is the very definition of the "living constitution" upon which judicial activists have relied in order to amend our Constitution by judicial fiat rather than its prescribed method in Article V.

No doubt, Kagan will advance that heretical and treasonous interpretation.

Obama claims that Kagan understands the law "not as an intellectual exercise or words on a page -- but as it affects the lives of ordinary people."

Not as "words on a page"?

It is precisely that rejection of the plain language of our Constitution that led President Thomas Jefferson in 1804 to call the court "the despotic branch."

Indeed, since the very founding of our constitutional government, the judiciary has worked "like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped."

Back in 1987, during confirmation hearings for Judge Robert Bork (one of the most qualified jurists ever nominated to the High Court), one Leftist senator commented, "The Framers intended the Senate to take the broadest view of its constitutional responsibility," especially in regard to the nominee's "political, legal and constitutional views." That senator was Joe Biden, who rejected Judge Bork because he was a "constitutional constructionist," precisely the attribute our Founders wanted in jurists.

Perhaps those in the Senate today will rightly consider Kagan's "political, legal and constitutional views," and reject her nomination in order to preserve Essential Liberty and Rule of Law.

Semper Vigilo, Fortis, Paratus et Fidelis!

Freom RedState blog has her thesis , Elena Kagan is an open and avowed socialist.

CLICK here if you would like to read it,


The woman declares that socialists must stick together instead of fracture in order to advance a socialist agenda, which Kagan advocates.

Kagan wrote her thesis at the height of the cold war praising a group that collaborated with our enemies .

I read her thesis, It is very boring. Drab is a good description. It is basically a historical documentary of the Socialist movement in the early 1900s. ......the conclusion. She opines about the failure of the movement and suggests why the Socialist Party never succeeded. HER ENTIRE PREMISE IS GROSSLY FLAWED (in my opinion). She blames the American people (duh). There is no mention, what so ever, of the United States Constitution and how Socialism is in direct conflict with what the founders of this nation intended and scribed.

Just Like Obama, AG Eric Holder Refuses to Say “Radical Islam” at Hearing on Faisal Shahzad

Keep America Safe

Pressed during testimony before the House Judiciary Committee today, US Attorney General refuses to use the term “radical Islam” when discussing the motives behind the Times Square bomber.

The Obama White House removed confessed terrorist Faisal Shahzad from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.

Terrorist Faisal Shahzad had substantial connections to the Taliban, reached out to the Taliban, was influenced by Yemeni terror leader Anwar al Awlaki, made at least a dozen return trips to Pakistan since arriving in the United States in 1999, and he bought a one way ticket with cash to Pakistan.

He was “blogging” and asking for jihad as far back as 2006 but the Obama Administration took him off the terror watch list anyway.

But, Eric Holder won’t blame “radical Islam.”


Wild Thing's comment........

One should only have to know Islam and be aware that it is a radical and pure evil.

Notice the way he says ISS-laam, not Islam like most Americans. Clearly, he cannot bring himself to say anything negative about his beloved ISS-laam.

The only added thing I disagree with is that it is ALL of Islam I would not call it just the radical ones that are Islamists. But ALL , every breathing follower of Islam.

It is not possible to be a "good" Muslim!!!

Anti-America Obama Cuts NY Anti-Terror Funds Even After Times Sq. Bombing Attempt

Obama to cut NYC anti-terror funding even after Times Sq. bombing attempt

New York Post

The Obama administration will announce tomorrow it has slashed anti-terror funds for New York City, despite the attempted Times Square bombing less than two weeks ago that underscored the enormous threat to the city.

The Department of Homeland Security informed New York officials yesterday that grants to the city were cut 27 percent for mass transit security and 25 percent for port security.

The mass transit funds dropped $42 million, from $153 million last year to $111 this year.

Port security funds suffered a $11.2 million cut, from $45 million to $33.8 million, officials said.

The timing of the announcement drew howls from New York lawmakers on Capitol Hill, whose recent pleas for increased anti-terror spending in the Big Apple – along with the same plea from Mayor Bloomberg – fell flat.

They said the Times Square bomb attempt shows that New Yok remains the top target for terrorists and that the city deserves the lion’s share of federal spending on security.
"For the administration to announce these cuts two weeks after the attempted Times Square bombing shows they just don’t get it and are not doing right by New York City on anti-terrorism funding," Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said.
He urged the White House to reconsider its decision.
"Instead of distributing funding all over the country, they should focus their attention where the greatest threat exists — right here in New York," he said.

Homeland Security officials did not immediately respond to questions about the funding level. But they previously said the city receives ample funding, despite cuts.

Rep. Pete King (R-LI), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, said the cuts were "dangerous and unconscionable."
"The threat against New York City, the top target of al-Qaeda, is increasing, not decreasing," he said, noting that the city has been the target of at least 11 foiled terror plots since 9/11.
"The Times Square attempt served as a wake-up call for many, but apparently not for the Obama Administration, which should be dramatically increasing New York City’s homeland security funding, not decreasing it."

It is not the first time President Obama has short-changed the city on homeland security dollars.

Obama has moved for the second year in a row to eliminate a $30 million program called "Securing our Cities."

It would create a ring of radiation detectors around the city to monitor for nuclear and dirty bombs.

Last year, Schumer and King succeeded in fighting to restore $20 million for the nuke detectors along highways, toll plazas, bridges, tunnels and waterways.

The administration also decided to redeploy the Coast Guard’s Maritime Safety and Security Team in New York to Boston Harbor.

Lt. Col. Lakin Court Martial Hearing Set for June, 11, 2010, Open to the Public!

Lt. Col. Lakin Court Martial Hearing Set for June, 11, 2010, Open to the Public!

The Birther

The Obama records which have not been released include; Passport records, Obama kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, University of Chicago scholarly articles, Illinois State Bar Association records, Illinois State Senate records/schedules(said to be lost), Medical records, Obama/Dunham marriage license, Obama/Dunham divorce documents, Soetoro/Dunham marriage license, Adoption records and of course the long-form Certificate of Live Birth.

The Army has now officially scheduled a formal hearing its case against Terry, who is being court-martialled by the Army for refusing to obey orders to deploy to Afghanistan because the President refuses --even in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary-- to prove his eligibility under the Constitution to hold office.

The hearing will be held on June 11, 2010 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. at 9:00 a.m. in room 134 of Building T-2. All proceedings are open to the media and public.

The court martial process, which begins with the military's equivalent of a preliminary hearing in a civilian criminal court, known as an "Article 32 Investigation" (referring to the provision found in that section in the Uniform Code of Military Justice) was commenced on May 3, 2010, when LTC Lakin was notified that the Art. 32 hearing would take place May 6, 2010. Lakin's civilian lawyer, Paul Rolf Jensen, immediately requested a continuance to June 11, 2010, and this request has been granted. Assisting Jensen in his defense of Lakin is a very experienced senior member of the Army's Judge Advocate General's corps.


The full interview with LTC. Terry Lakin on the G. Gordon Liddy show, recorded on 4/20/10...Pt. 1 of 8 Lt Col. Terry Lakin, along with his lawyer Paul Jensen, tells The G-Man why he is refusing to deploy to Afghanistan until President Obama proves he is a natural-born citizen.










Wild Thing''s comment........

The libs have a long history being wilfully ignorant regarding military affairs. Not only does Lakin, as an officer, have the right to question the "lawful" nature of his orders, he also has the responsibility and duty to do so. An enlisted man swears an oath to obey his superiors up to and including that of the President.

Officers swear an oath to faithfully uphold the tenets of the Constitution itself. Without this balance in power, the military becomes nothing more than a tool of the executive branch of government. The libs should understand how dangerous that scenario would be ... but like I say, they are wilfully ignorant when it suits them.

Lakin is a true patriot that understands his oath. Hopefully his courage will spark a fire among his peers.

Obama Uses Connecticut Soc. Sec. Number

Obama uses Connecticut Soc. Sec. Number

3 experts insist White House answer new questions about documentation


By Jerome R. Corsi

NEW YORK – Two private investigators working independently are asking why President Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.

In addition, the records indicate the number was issued between 1977 and 1979, yet Obama's earliest employment reportedly was in 1975 at a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream shop in Oahu, Hawaii.

WND has copies of affidavits filed separately in a presidential eligibility lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia by Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels and Colorado private investigator John N. Sampson.

The investigators believe Obama needs to explain why he is using a Social Security number reserved for Connecticut applicants that was issued at a date later than he is known to have held employment.

The Social Security website confirms the first three numbers in his ID are reserved for applicants with Connecticut addresses, 040-049.

"Since 1973, Social Security numbers have been issued by our central office," the Social Security website explains. "The first three (3) digits of a person's social security number are determined by the ZIP code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number."

The question is being raised amid speculation about the president's history fueled by an extraordinary lack of public documentation. Along with his original birth certificate, Obama also has not released educational records, scholarly articles, passport documents, medical records, papers from his service in the Illinois state Senate, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption papers.

Robert Siciliano, president and CEO of and a nationally recognized expert on identity theft, agrees the Social Security number should be questioned.

"I know Social Security numbers have been issued to people in states where they don't live, but there's usually a good reason the person applied for a Social Security number in a different state," Siciliano told WND.

WND asked Siciliano whether he thought the question was one the White House should answer.

"Yes," he replied. "In the case of President Obama, I really don't know what the good reason would be that he has a Social Security number issued in Connecticut when we know he was a resident of Hawaii."

Siciliano is a frequent expert guest on identify theft on cable television networks, including CNN, CNBC and the Fox News Channel.

Daniels and Sampson each used a different database showing Obama is using a Social Security number beginning with 042.

WND has further confirmed that the Social Security number in question links to Obama in the online records maintained by the Selective Service System. Inserting the Social Security number, his birth date and his last name produces a valid Selective Service number.

To verify the number was issued by the Social Security Administration for applicants in Connecticut, Daniels used a Social Security number verification database. She found that the numbers immediately before and immediately after Obama's were issued to Connecticut applicants between the years 1977 and 1979.

"There is obviously a case of fraud going on here," Daniels maintained. "In 15 years of having a private investigator's license in Ohio, I've never seen the Social Security Administration make a mistake of issuing a Connecticut Social Security number to a person who lived in Hawaii. There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly."

Does the Social Security Administration ever re-issue Social Security numbers?

"Never," Daniels said. "It's against the law for a person to have a re-issued or second Social Security number issued."
Daniels said she is "staking my reputation on a conclusion that Obama's use of this Social Security number is fraudulent."

There is no indication in the limited background documentation released by the Obama 2008 presidential campaign or by the White House to establish that Obama ever lived in Connecticut.

Nor is there any suggestion in Obama's autobiography, "Dreams from My Father," that he ever had a Connecticut address.

Also, nothing can be found in the public record that indicates Obama visited Connecticut during his high-school years.

Sampson's affidavit specifies that as a result of his formal training as an immigration officer and his 27-year career in professional law enforcement, "it is my knowledge and belief that Social Security numbers can only be applied for in the state in which the applicant habitually resides and has their official residence."

Daniels told WND she believes Obama had a different Social Security number when he worked as a teenager in Hawaii prior to 1977.

"I doubt this is President Obama's originally issued Social Security number," she told WND. "Obama has a work history in Hawaii before he left the islands to attend college at Occidental College in California, so he must have originally been issued a Social Security number in Hawaii."

The published record available about Obama indicates his first job as a teenager in Hawaii was at a Baskin-Robbins in the Makiki neighborhood on Oahu. USA Today reported the ice-cream shop still was in operation one year after Obama's inauguration., a website typically supportive of Obama, claims he worked at the Baskin-Robbins in 1975 or 1976, prior to the issuance of the number in question.

"It is a crime to use more than one Social Security number, and Barack Obama had to have a previous Social Security number to have worked at Baskin-Robbins," she insisted. "Under current law, a person is not permitted to use more than one Social Security number in a lifetime."

Another anomaly in the law enforcement databases searched by Daniels and Sampson is that the date 1890 shows up in the field indicating the birth of the number holder, along with Obama's birth date of 08/04/1961. A third date listed is 04/08/1961, which appears to be a transposition of Obama's birth date in an international format, with the day before the month.

Daniels disclosed to WND the name of the database she searched and produced a computer screen copy of the page that listed 1890 as a date associated with the 042 Social Security number.

Daniels said she can't be sure if the 1890 figure has any significance. But she said it appears the number Obama is using was previously issued by the Social Security Administration.

After an extensive check of the proprietary databases she uses as a licensed private investigator, Daniels determined that the first occurrence of Obama's association with the number was in 1986 in Chicago.

Daniels assumes, but cannot prove, that Obama took on a previously issued Social Security number that had gone dormant due to the death of the original holder.

Daniels has been a licensed private investigator in Ohio since 1995. Sampson formed his private investigations firm, CSI Consulting and Investigations, in 2008. He previously worked as a deportations law enforcement officer with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The Daniels and Sampson affidavits were originally recorded by attorney Orly Taitz in an eligibility case against Obama last year.


ABC News/Washington Post poll....1 In 7 Democrats Are "Birthers"

ABC News

Fifteen percent (15%) of Democrats think President Obama may have been born in a foreign country. Eighteen percent (18%) of Independents and thirty-one (31%) of Republicans believe Obama may have been born abroad.


Obama waives ethics rules for eligibility lawyer (2 million spent on COLB cases- COLB costs =$10)


Obama has waived ethics rules for White House counsel Robert Bauer, his personal and campaign lawyer – and the same attorney who has defended Obama in lawsuits challenging his eligibility to be president.

Late last year, Obama installed Robert Bauer – top lawyer for Obama, Obama's presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee and Obama's Organizing for America – as White House counsel. Bauer had been a partner at the law firm Perkins Coie.

However, Executive Order 13490, "Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Personnel," prohibits political appointees from participating in any matter involving specific parties that is directly and substantially related to former employers or former clients. The rule typically expires two years after the date of appointment.

According to the ethics waiver posted May 7 at 5 p.m. on the White House website, Bauer is now exempted from the requirements of the ethics pledge "solely with respect to his former client the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and with respect to his former employer Perkins Coie LLP (Perkins Coie) in its capacity as counsel to the DNC and to President Barack Obama in his personal capacity."

The waiver suggests the ethics rules would have prevented Bauer from working on Obama's financial disclosure forms or issues related to the Democratic National Committee.

The document states, "Before his service as Counsel to the President, Mr. Bauer and Perkins Coie represented the President in his personal capacity, and Mr. Bauer's former firm continues to represent the President on such matters. If the ethics pledge were literally applied, when representing the interests of the President and the United States as Counsel to the President, Mr. Bauer would not be able to advise the President appropriately on particular matters that are directly and substantially related to Perkins Coie's representation of the President in his personal capacity."

The Federal Election Commission shows "Obama for America," Obama's 2008 political campaign, has made regular payments totaling $2,877,083.56, or $2.9 million, to Perkins Coie since Jan. 1, 2007 --Nearly $2 million, or $1,941,381.04, of that sum was paid to Perkins Coie since questions about Obama's eligibility were raised in June 2008 while Bauer was a partner (until Bauer's departure in December 2009).


Wild Thing's comment........

And we still know next to nothing about Barack Hussein Obama, or whatever his real name is. There are enough significant question marks about this guy that I’ll never believe he’s legitimate in any way.

The only way I’ll ever believe him is if he releases all the info about his life that people want to see.

If you are NOT a U.S. citizen or you have not a "Green-Card" you CANNOT get a Social Security Card, ergo you just make an identity theft. I've heard that the Dunham family used 30+ such S.S.#s!!!

A birth certificate costs $10-- and Obama has spent over 2 MILLION DOLLARS DEFENDING HIMSELF IN CASES REGARDING HIS LACK OF A COLB. Amazing. 2 million dollars for a $10 slip of paper. The cost of this is inching up to 3 million dollars now.

Hate Filled Muslim Monster Jew-hater And Supporter Of Genocide Flushed Out By David Horowitz At A Speech In San Diego


A Muslim Student Association (MSA) member admitted publicly during a question and answer session with conservative David Horowitz in San Diego that she supports a second Holocaust. During the Question and Answer period David Horowitz had a chilling exchange with a member of the MSA in which he prodded her to reveal the depraved depths of her Jew-hatred.

Horowitz: Okay. Will you condemn Hamas, here and now?
MSA member: I’m sorry, what?

Horowitz: Will you condemn Hamas?

MSA member: Would I condemn Hamas?

Horowitz: As a terrorist organization. Genocidal organization.

MSA member: Are you asking me to put myself on a cross?

Horowitz: So you won’t. I have actually had this experience many times. You didn’t actually read the pamphlet, because the pamphlet is chapter and verse. The main connection is that the MSA is part of the Muslim Brotherhood Network as revealed…

MSA member: I don’t think you understood what I meant by that. I meant if I say something, I am sure that I will be arrested, for reasons of homeland security. So if you could please just answer my question.

Horowitz: If you condemn Hamas, Homeland Security will arrest you?

MSA member: If I support Hamas, because your question forces me to condemn Hamas. If I support Hamas, I look really bad.

Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it. Case closed. I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there. And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would. And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’ So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way. I am a Jew. The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. For or Against it?

MSA member: For it.

Horowitz: Thank you for coming and showing everybody what’s here.


Wild Thing's comment........

It’s stunning that these people are the open...and one of their brothers is in the White House. David Horowitz is actively confronting this domestic terrorist front (Moslem Student Association-MSA).

And also WTF is this about Hitler youth week? Sheesh! What these idiots don’t get is that Hitler would have wiped them out too ! His idea of a master race, blue eyes and blond hair, doesn’t really fit your typical muslim.

Why are the Muslims Islamofascist muzzies wandering around in America in burkas or headscarves, etc. Some working at our airports.

Why are they being permitted to build mosques and “Islamic Centers” all over the world and in America.

What part of the Muslims want us all dead do they not get?

9 Indicted On Charges of Accessing Obama Records

9 indicted on charges of accessing Obama records



Nine people were indicted Wednesday on federal charges of accessing President Barack Obama's student loan records while they were employed for a Department of Education contractor in Iowa.

The U.S. attorney's office said a grand jury returned the indictments in U.S. District Court in Davenport.

All nine are charged with exceeding authorized computer access. They are accused of gaining access to a computer at a Coralville office where they worked between July 2007 and March 2009, and accessing Obama's student loan records while he was either a candidate for president, president-elect or president.

U.S. attorney spokesman Mike Bladel referred questions to online copies of the indictments.

Each of eight indictments posted by Wednesday night were brief, saying the charged individual "intentionally exceeded authorized access to a computer and thereby obtained information from a department and agency of the United States" and "intentionally accessed student loan records" of Obama without authorization.

Those charged are Andrew J. Lage, 54, Patrick E. Roan, 51, Sandra Teague, 54 and Mercedes Costoyas, 53, all of Iowa City; Gary N. Grenell, 58, and Lisa Torney, 49, of Coralville; Anna C. Rhodes, 32, of Ainsworth; Julie L. Kline, 38, of West Branch; and John P. Phommivong, 29, for whom no hometown was listed.

Lage told The Associated Press on Wednesday evening he did not know about the indictment and declined comment.

Messages were left for Teague, Torney and Costoyas. A telephone listing for Kline rang unanswered and a listing for Rhodes was disconnected. No telephone numbers were immediately found for Phommivong, Roan or Grenell.

Six of them are accused of accessing Obama's records when he was a candidate, according to the indictments online. One is accused of accessing the records when he was president-elect. An indictment for the ninth defendant was not immediately available online.

Court records did not name the contractor that employed the defendants.

Arraignments are scheduled for May 24. The charge is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $100,000.


Wild Thing's comment........

The Regime is really desperate to hide everything about Obama’s past. Why aren't his federally guaranteed loan records open to the public?

More double standard! Remember when the State worker helped the Obama campaign and snooped into files trying to find something on Joe the Plumber? She never got any jail time and I am not sure if she even was fined.

Just a reminder too, Rev. Manning’s grand jury trial due this Friday in Harlem.

Maurice Strong and George Soros Owners Of Their Puppet Barack Hussein Obama All 3 Set To Destroy America!

The new world devised by Maurice Strong and George Soros

By Judi McLeod Monday, ( November 24, 2008 )


Have you ever wondered how capitalism was pushed over the edge of the cliff just six weeks before the American presidential election?

According to financial experts, the world, as we know it will change dramatically by the year 2012. People, who provided for their families only three years ago, will be desperately searching for food.

The story of the economic meltdown of 2008 begins and ends with the United Nations and its carefully managed One World Order.

Behind the curtain of this dark chapter in human misery are ogres Maurice Strong and George Soros.

It is both power lust and an all-consuming hatred of the United States of America that elevated this deadly duo to ogre status.

Fortunately for all of those searching for answers, much of their plan for the world, post November 4, 2008 is already mapped out in writing.

Leading economic experts and Strong agree that in 2012 people will be going hungry.

“Strong has worked diligently and effectively to bring his ideas to fruition, He is now in a position to implement them.” (Henry Lamb, The Rise of Global Governance, available at “His speeches and writings provide a clear picture of what to expect. In 1991, Strong wrote the introduction to a book published by the Trilateral Commission, called Beyond Interdependence: The Meshing of the World’s Economy and the Earth’s Ecology, by Jim MacNeil. (David Rockefeller wrote the foreword).

Strong said this:

“This interlocking…is the new reality of the century, with profound implications for the shape of our institutions of governance, national and international. By the year 2012, these changes must be fully integrated into our economic and political life.”

These chilling words are in line with ones he used for the opening session of the Rio Conference (Earth Summit II) in 1992, that industrialized countries have:

“Developed and benefited from the unsustainable patterns of production and consumption which have produced our present dilemma. It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class—involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing—are not sustainable. A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally damaging consumption patterns.”

The only change that has happened since 1992 is that Strong and Soros now have their Agent of Change coming to the White House.

In other words, the world according to Maurice Strong, is unfolding as it should.

In an era ridden by bankruptcies and job loss, Zombie-like cultists will swarm Washington, D.C. for the January 20, 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama.

Voluntary acceptance of global governance is the preferred means of achieving a takeover of America without a single shot having been fired.

“Education programs to teach the “global ethic” have been underway by UNESCO and by UNEP for more than twenty years.” (Page 90, The Rise of Global Governance). “That the U.S. government, through its representatives to the various U.N. agencies, has not already crushed this global governance agenda is s testament to the effectiveness of the U.N.’s education program.”

Back to how to how ogres Strong and Soros, along with others, were able to hijack a world economy.

“A new Economic Security Council (ESC) would replace the existing Economic and Social Council. The new ESC would consist of no more than 23 members who would have responsibility for all international financial and development activities. The IMF, the World Bank, and the WTO—virtually all finance and development activities—would be under the authority of this body. There would be no veto power by any nation. (Italics CFP’s). Nor would there be permanent member status for any nation.”
Bloggers and website owners may recall how the Ohama campaign team seemed to have thousands of volunteers available with G-Mail accounts to send out a barrage of nasty letters any time a blog or website asked too many questions or dared to criticize “The Messiah”.

In a post January 20 world, it seems that Obama will develop his activist base from within the White House.

But in Maurice Strong’s New World, NGOs will flag the new order about truth tellers: “The Commission (on Global Governance) believes that the U.N. should protect the “security of the people” inside the borders of sovereign nations, with or without the invitation of the national government. It proposes the expansion of an NGO “early warning” network to function through the Petitions Council to alert the U.N. to possible action.” (Italics CFP’s).

Maurice Strong has had a longtime influence with the major Foundations, which provide the funding for NGOs, and he has influence with the major international NGOs that coordinate the activities of the thousands of smaller NGOs around the world.

Small wonder that Strong spends his time far away in Communist China these days.

But there is a silver lining to be found even with the darkest of storm clouds over America and something for Americans to contemplate over the upcoming holidays.

In spite of the hype coming out of the Office of the President-elect, Obama is merely a fop for the global elite. He is their, and not the people’s true agent of change.

The January 20 inauguration with its promise of 5 million observers in Washington, D.C. will be the extravaganza of a lifetime, deepening recession notwithstanding.

It is Obama’s job to demoralize the 58 million people who did not buy into his campaign and for all of those who do not want One World Order.

Starring among all the glitterati at the Inauguration Ball, Barack and Michelle are like the stick figures from a kindergartener’s drawing, for this is an emperor who truly has no clothes.


Maurice Strong, the Father of America’s Destruction (Crime, Inc. mack daddy) Resist Net

by Richard Salbato

Maurice Strong, the Father of America’s destruction . George Soros and his Canadian sidekick, Kyoto architect Maurice Strong, are the brains behind the likes of Al Gore, Mikhail Gorbachev and Barak Obama, all who belong to the above and the “Chicago Climate Exchange” which will make billions on climate change.

Barrack Hussein Obama is the one out in front talking about “Change we can believe in”, but the senator from Illinois is only the latest puppet.

We already know from the Internet that Soros has gone a long way to bankroll Obama’s campaign, but not so well known is that Soros worked in conjunction with Maurice Strong . Maurice Strong, born in Canada, lived in New York, and now exiled in China, but still the power behind Obama and the liberal House and Senate of America.

Strong has been saying all along that China would someday soon replace the U.S. as world economic leader.

Described in countless media write-ups as a cross between the Wizard of Oz and Dr. No, the Canadian oil billionaire was the Secretary General of the 1992 UN Conference on the environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro where the unveiling of Agenda 21 took place and subtly began to change the world as the rest of us know it.

“With little media monitoring, Strong and Gore are cashing in on the lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming.”


Wild Thing's comment........

I can't believe that Agenda 21 is actually on the US STATE DEPARTMENT WEBSITE. When I saw that the other day I was sick the whole entire damned day.

This is our David and Goliath moment, we need to hit this giant government, New World Order, between the eyes.

A little about ....AGENDA 21.

Agenda 21 is a United Nation’s game plan for a radical transformation of the global society. At the Rio Earth Summit, Al Gore stated that “Americans are going to have to face a wrenching transformation of Society.” President Obama’s stated goal is a “transformation of America” as we know it. The innocuous term used by the United Nations to accomplish this transformation is “Sustainable Development.” Broken down, that means the dismantling of America as a sovereign nation and the globalization of our economy and our laws. Our rate of development, according to globalists, is “un-sustainable” based on underdeveloped countries. In effect, it restricts population and economic growth in America through government-controlled health care and through decreased and redistributed resources such as energy and wealth. Americans should no longer “sustain life” of the very young or elderly or remain sovereign and prosperous. The globalists’ creed is – the planet cannot endure it.

Progressive politicians on both sides of the aisle have signed on to Agenda 21’s “Sustainable Development.” Obama’s health-scare will have a vice-like grip on who gets medical care – who lives or dies, whereas Cap and Trade, that Obama so desperately wants, will allow the government to have a vice-like grip on how Americans live.

Obama (with NO class) Says Re: Limbaugh.... "Limbaugh can play with himself."

New York Post

When President Obama was asked if he would play a round of golf with his talk-radio nemesis Rush Limbaugh, the response, relayed by a top Democrat, was: "Limbaugh can play with himself."

This is according to Zev Chafets in his new book, "Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One," due May 25 from Sentinel.

The caustic comeback is another example of the verbal venom between the White House and the conservative radio star. In an interview with CBS News last month, Obama called the views spelled out by Limbaugh and Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck "troublesome."

Chafets reports he encouraged Limbaugh to reach out to the president just after last July's "Beer Summit" that Obama hosted between Professor Henry Louis Gates and Sgt. Joseph Crowley, the Cambridge cop who arrested Gates after he locked himself out of his own home.

"You guys are both golfers," Chafets told Limbaugh. "Would you play a round with the president and show the country that there are no hard feelings?"

"He's the president of the United States," Limbaugh told Chafets. "If any president asked me to meet him, or play golf with him, I'd do it. But I promise you that will never happen. His base on the left would have a s--t-fit."

"How about letting me ask?" Chafets said.

"Go ahead," Limbaugh said. "Nothing will come of it."

Chafets writes that he reached out to Obama adviser David Axelrod, "whom I know slightly," but Axelrod didn't return calls. Then Chafets spoke to "a very senior Democratic activist with whom I'm friendly" who said he would convey the message.

A day or two later the adviser responded, "Limbaugh can play with himself." Chafets wouldn't name the aide or say whether the quote was directly from Obama.

A spokesman said Limbaugh had not seen the book, and wouldn't comment. The White House did not respond to e-mails.

Wild Thing's comment........

You just gotta’ love how these people keep it real classy. Is it November yet?

1600 Pennsylvania Ave: Home of the first affirmative action president living in government owned housing.

"Limbaugh can play with himself."

That's just a tad close to: "Limbaugh can go .... himself" isn't it? Which imho, is probably what was said.

PURE EVIL People Did This! ~ Vandals Tear Down & Steal Mojave Desert Cross Days After Supreme Court Decision

Thieves Steal Mojave Desert Memorial Cross in Nighttime Heist

Just Days After Supreme Court Decision

FOX News

The 7-foot-tall metal cross in a 75-year-old war memorial that withstood the heat of the Mojave Desert and a blazing battle in the Supreme Court over its legality was ripped down and stolen Sunday night, according to federal officials.

The 7-foot-tall metal cross in a 75-year-old war memorial that withstood the heat of the Mojave Desert and a blazing battle in the Supreme Court over its legality was ripped down and stolen Sunday night, according to federal officials.

"This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people's graves," said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Liberty Institute, which represents the caretakers of the Mojave Desert War Memorial. "It's a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed."

The National Park Service says someone cut the metal bolts holding the metal-pipe cross to the top of the memorial's Sunrise Rock and made off with it Sunday night or before dawn on Monday.

Authorities had no immediate motive for the theft but National Park Service officials are considering a range of ideas from scrap metal scavengers to people "with an interest in the case," said Park Service spokeswoman Linda Slater.

Veterans groups were outraged by the theft.

"The American Legion expects whoever is responsible for this vile act to be brought to justice," said Clarence Hill, the group's national commander. "While the memorial has been attacked, the fight will continue to ensure that veterans memorials will remain sacrosanct."

The Veterans of Foreign Wars first placed a cross on the rock in 1934 to honor troops who died in World War I. The cross that stood at the memorial until this week was erected at a later date.

"To think anyone can rationalize the desecration of a war memorial is sickening, and for them to believe they won't be apprehended is very naïve," said VFW National Commander Thomas J. Tradewell Sr.

The cross has been covered with a tarp or a wooden box since 2002 by a court order to avoid violating federal law mandating the separation of church and state. The 75-year-old monument was the target of a longstanding legal challenge from the ACLU, which charged that the cross is a religious symbol that shouldn't be allowed on public land. The U.S. Supreme Court last month refused to order that it be torn down in a 5-4 decision.

But the Supreme Court also referred the case back to a lower court for further review, forcing the caretakers to continue covering the cross with a pine box. Maintenance workers noticed on Saturday that the box had been removed, and were preparing to restore it Monday morning when they found that the entire cross was missing.

Park officials said the box has been removed "several times" in the past and covered with graffiti at least once -- but that no one had ever before attempted to physically remove the cross itself.

The Liberty Institute is now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction in the case, and the National Park Service has established a tip hotline seeking information leading to the recovery of the cross. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Park Service at (760) 252-6120.

The cross was erected in the 1934 by a veterans group as a tribute to their fallen brethren in World War I. It has been the subject of a decade long court battle between those who want it to remain and those who believe it violates the separation of church and state.

Authorities are seeking sthe public's help in finding those responsible, and supporters are offering $25,000 to anyone with information leading to a conviction.

This video was about the ruling that I posted before:

The Truth About the Health Care Bill - by Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

The Truth About the Health Care Bill - by Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

by Sean Linnane

( Sean Linnane ... is the pseudonym of a retired Special Forces career NCO (1st SFG, 3d SFG, 10th SFG). I served with honor on five continents; I continue to serve in other capacities. )

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire Healthcare Bill - now voted into law. Read his stunning conclusions.

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009 I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Outrage: Obama Administration Targets Military for Pay Reductions

Outrage: Obama Administration Targets Military for Pay Reductions

Barack Obama — who came to power with the help of government employee unions across the nation and has lavished on them hundreds of billions in stimulus funds to keep them on federal, state and local payrolls with no strings attached — is moving to cut spending on salaries for military personnel.

This weekend The Washington Post headlined story, "Pentagon Asking Congress to Hold Back on Generous Increases in Troop Pay,” disclosed that the Obama administration is “pleading” with Congress to give military personnel a much smaller increase in pay than lawmakers have proposed.

The Pentagon contends that Congress simply has been too generous with troops during the past decade.

In fact, lawmakers have lavished so much money on troops, according to the Post, that service members are now better compensated than workers in the private sector with similar experience and education levels.

For example, the military brass claims that an average sergeant in the Army with four years of service and one dependent would receive $52,589 in annual compensation, according to the paper. This figure includes basic pay, housing, and subsistence allowances, as well as tax benefits.

Meanwhile, a U.S. postal letter carrier, with no supervisory or hazardous duty, makes approximately $80,000 a year when all benefits are factored in.

Critics of the Obama administration’s efforts to cut soldier’s pay say America’s security has been strengthened by higher pay rates, as qualified veterans are re-enlisting at record rates, reversing the problem the military witnessed just a few years ago.
"Any attempt to link rising military personnel costs with shrinking military readiness is total nonsense," said Thomas J. Tradewell Sr., who leads the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the largest and oldest major combat veterans organization.
"If the Defense Department needs a larger budget for personnel programs, then let the VFW carry that message to Congress. Just don't pin the budget blame on service members and military retirees."

Tradewell's ire was targeted this past week at Clifford L. Stanley, the Defense undersecretary of personnel and readiness, who said during recent testimony before the personnel subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee: "Rising personnel costs could dramatically affect the readiness of the department."

"What's hurtful," said Tradewell, a combat-wounded Vietnam veteran from Sussex, Wis., "is a continuing perception that DoD is more concerned about the budget than they are about recruiting and retaining a professional volunteer force that's been at war now for more than eight years."

According to Stanley, last year was the military's most successful recruiting year since the establishment of the all-volunteer force in 1973.

Although advocates for military families argue that the decade-long spending spree reverses severe cuts that the military suffered in the 1990s, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and other military brass fear that the spending will threaten security in the years to come. That will mean less money to buy weapons and maintain aging equipment.

On Saturday, Gates told reporters that massive deficits can impact how the president and policy makers confront emerging threats like Iran.

Lawmakers consistently have overruled the Pentagon and mandated more-generous pay raises than requested by both the Bush and Obama administrations. Congress has also rejected attempts by the Pentagon to slow soaring healthcare costs, which Gates told reporters are "eating us alive," by raising co-pays or premiums.

The military admits the improving compensation for troops is helping retention.

For example, improvements in pay and benefits have made it more likely that sailors will stick around longer, Vice Adm. Mark E. Ferguson III, the chief of naval personnel, told the Post.

A Navy survey last year found that about 60 percent of spouses wanted their sailors to make a career of Navy life, meaning a stint of at least 20 years. In 2005, only about 20 percent of spouses felt the same way.

"I think pay was previously a concern, but it's started to change," Ferguson said. Congress had been "extremely generous" but rising personnel costs were already influencing what the Navy spends to operate, maintain and modernize its fleet, he added.

The Pentagon wants a pay raise of 1.4 percent for service members next year, an increase based on the Employment Cost Index, which the Labor Department uses to measure private-sector salary increases.

Congress, as it has for the past several years, has indicated it favors a slightly bigger bump, of 1.9 percent.

Although that extra half of a percent may not seem like much, one expert told the Post that it would accrue annually and cost about $3.5 billion over the next decade.

But congressional supporters of the men and women in the Armed Services are questioning why they are being singled out for future pay cutbacks when other government agencies and unions are not.

The U.S. Postal Service, for example, is slated to give letter carriers an increase of 1.9 percent this coming year.

And postal employees are considered to be grossly overpaid compared with their private counterparts. A postal supervisor, for example, can make $70,000 or year or more, plus significant benefits.

Last year, Congress had to help fill a $3.8 billion deficit at the federally backed agency, but there has been no discussion of salary cuts for postal employees. Instead, postal officials have focused on reducing service, including Saturday delivery.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Just when I think there is no way I can despise the SOB-in-chief any more than I already do, I find out that I really can. What a worthless glob of flesh!!!!!!

When Clinton was inaugurated, two of his first initiatives where allowing gays in the military (the backlash caused him to fall back to “don’t ask, don’t tell) and and order for no pay raise for the military. The armed forces were already angry about his draft dodging and “loathe the military letter”, but the rest of his actions made them despise him.

Obama has been way outdoing Clinton.

Obama knows the military hate him, and rightly so, the alien moron.

This is terrible.

If they do it to the military how about cutting all of Congress’ wages too?

And Obama’s?

And the cabinet members?

And the White House staff’s?

Pope Wanna Be Pelosi Says She's Told Catholic Cardinals, Archbishops and Bishops Tell Catholics That Immigration Reform Is

. - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she has told Catholic cardinals, archbishops and bishops that she wants them to speak from the pulpit for immigration reform and tell Catholics who oppose it that reform “is a manifestation of our living the gospels.”


She is the most radical pro-abortion politician in Congress despite the fact that she claims to be “Catholic.” She has intentionally misled voters on the Catholic Church doctrine on abortion and life issues. She supports the gruesome partial-birth abortion grinding method. She uses bogus saint’s days to push her radical pro-abortion nationalized health care bill.

Now, she wants Catholic clergy to push the democrat’s open border pro-amnesty immigration plan after she just rammed through pro-abortion Obamacare.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she has told Catholic cardinals, archbishops and bishops that she wants them to speak from the pulpit for immigration reform and tell Catholics who oppose it that reform is a manifestation of our living the gospels.

In her comments at the Catholic Community Conference on Capitol Hill on May 6, Pelosi specifically referenced illegal immigrants in America, saying as a practical matter, we cant say to people, 12 million of you, go back to wherever you came from or go to jail.

I would hope that theres one thing that we can do working together as we go forward that speaks to what the Bible tells us about the dignity and worth of every person -- and that is on the subject of immigration, Pelosi said in her remarks. Because I think the Church is going to have to play a very major role in how we, in how people are treated.
The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say, We want you to pass immigration reform, disclosed Pelosi. And I say, But I want you to speak about it from the pulpit.'
I want you to instruct your, whatever the communication is -- the people, some of them, oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the gospels, said Pelosi. Our patron saint of San Francisco, St. Francis of Assisi, he said, preach the gospel --sometimes use words. We need the words to be said because it isnt being picked up automatically.

Pelosi, a Catholic and a Trinity College alumnus, said the estimated 12 million people currently living in America illegally cannot be told by society to go back to where they came from or go to jail.

We have to respect that dignity and worth (of the indiciual), and recognize that the Church has an important role to play in that, she said. We dont -- as a practical matter, we cant say to people, 12 million of you, go back to wherever you came from or go to jail.
We cant do that, she said. But the newcomers to America are really, again, important to the constant re-invigoration of America, which is part of who we are and have always been unless were all Native American -- God Bless them. But most of the people here came from someplace else.


Wild Thing's comment........

So Pelosi is the leader of the Catholic church now? Wow, where does she find the time? LOL Good grief!

What REALLY ticks me off is how the left is trying to brain washing people into thinking this is about immigration and it is about ILLEGALS!!!! No one that I know is against immigration and those that follow our laws about it.

What about the rights of hard-working LEGAL immigrants Nancy you worthless fraud?!

“I would hope that there’s one thing that we can do working together as we go forward that speaks to what the Bible tells us about the dignity and worth of every person -- and that is on the subject of immigration,”

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!- Isaiah 5:20

White House: Stop Marketing Unhealthy Foods to Kids

White House: Stop Marketing Unhealthy Foods to Kids

CBS News

A White House report warns "The childhood obesity epidemic in America is a national health crisis."

The review by the Task Force on Childhood Obesity says one out of every three children is overweight or obese. The task force is a key part of First Lady Michelle Obama's campaign to solve the problem of obesity within a generation.

The report includes familiar themes, emphasizing the importance of improved nutrition and physical activity.

It also calls for some new and dramatic efforts to curtail marketing of unhealthy foods.

"We have a roadmap for implementing our plan across our government and across the country," Michelle Obama told reporters today.

But administration officials repeatedly emphasized the effort would rely on "bully pulpit" pressure and not any new federal mandates to push the changes.

Setting the tone for that pressure, the first lady said, "No one gets off the hook on this one from governments to schools, corporations to non-profits all the way down to families sitting around their dinner table."
She said she would "focus my energy" to keep the issue at "the forefront of the discussion in society."

The task force wants junk food makers and marketers to go on what amounts to an advertising diet. It says media characters that are often popular with kids should only be used to promote healthy products. If voluntary efforts fail to limit marketing of less healthy products to young viewers, the task force suggests the FCC should consider new rules on commercials in children's programming. It also challenges food retailers to stop using in-store displays to sell unhealthy food items to children.

But Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz said, "A regulatory approach is certainly not where we want to start." He told a briefing, "You start by pushing self-regulation, by pushing your bully pulpit; sometimes shaming companies that don't do enough."

Leibowitz indicated the FTC would issue new subpoenas to major food marketing and fast food companies that were questioned in 2005 about their marketing approaches. The FTC chief said the agency would determine whether the firms have honored commitments and "whether we can make them do more."

Leibowitz sees some marketing of healthier foods but he concedes "more needs to be done."

The advisory panel proposes better food content labeling on products and vending machines. Restaurants and vending machine companies are urged to display calorie counts. The experts say the FDA and USDA should cooperate with the food and beverage industries to develop a standard system of nutrition labeling on the front of packages. The study also suggests that restaurants should re-evaluate portion sizes, improve kids' menus and list more healthy food choices.

The task force also sees a potential pocketbook approach to keep people from buying unhealthy foods. It calls for analyzing the effect of imposing state and local sales taxes on less healthy products.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius emphasized, "There is no proposal for a federal tax on sugar."

She noted some local governments have seen a possible correlation between a lower use of sugary items and increased taxes on certain products.

The White House study says school systems should consider promoting healthier food in cafeterias. One idea: "swap deep fryers for salad bars."

Children will likely cheer the panel's call for schools to promote recess for younger students and "physical activity breaks" for upper level grades.

The report found one out of every three children is overweight or obese, conditions that increase their risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and cancer in their lifetimes. The cost of treating obesity-related ailments is estimated to be $150 billion per year.

The task force concludes that strategies listed in the report "should" achieve the goal of solving the childhood obesity problem within a generation. It concedes it won't be easy.

Wild Thing's comment........

Here we go. There has to be something illegal about government telling business how to market its products.

Michelle obama- the angry irrelevant obama........looking to extablish herself by sucking the joy out of life for more people.

Big Brother thinks we are too stupid to think for ourselves. Typical liberal BS. Plus they sure want to take parenting away from the parents.

IMO, They’re looking at it as an opportunity to regulate, not an opportunity to promote health and wellness.

Anyone see the word PARENT anywhere in that article????? It is not there, that's because the OBAMA PARENTS hired a Nanny........ her name is Task Force on Childhood Obesity .

Let us see! These clowns have taken over the financial sector, the health sector, insurance, automotive industry and now control of our food is in their sights. Is anybody worried????????????? Are guns next???

Arlen Specter is Desperate in Pennsylvania

Arlen Specter is clearly desperate in Pennsylvania. He is now trailing Democrat rival Joe Sestak for the Democrat Nomination.

This is video of a new Specter ad featuring none other than "The One" himself. Maybe his presence will help as much as it did in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts....heh heh


Specter to Hatch - They're Coming for You Next

FOX News Blog

by Trish Turner | Senior Capitol Hill Producer

When a three term incumbent senator of any affiliation is knocked off, a shiver runs through the club. "Am I next?" appears to hang in the air, precariously wafting through the ornate halls. And in a rare moment of candor, I got a glimpse of this.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-UT, invited me to join him on the underground subway that connects the outer office buildings to the Capitol, as we chatted. It's about a four minute ride, but boy did I want it to be longer today. Sitting across from us - Sen. Arlen Specter, D-PA, who is in the political fight for his life back home with polls showing him down against his primary opponent, Rep. Joe Sestak.

It's an odd turn of events in Pennsylvania, with Specter jumping the GOP ship when a challenge from the far right from former Rep. Pat Toomey, former head of the conservative Club for Growth, proved too much for him.

Meanwhile, across the country, three-term incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett, R-UT, just got his head handed to him Saturday at a party convention...

Now back to that subway ride. Here's what then transpired, perhaps best put in script form --- my rough log of my journey:

Specter to Hatch: So - you better watch out, Orrin, Toomey's coming to get you next.
Hatch: What's that?
Specter: That Club for Growth is going to be coming for you next just like they did me.
Hatch: Man - they really savaged Bob. But they're after Republicans.
Specter: Well, they got me.
Hatch: It's vicious out there.
Specter thinking, pauses - looks at me, smiling wryly: Well, you've got the big scoop now don't you?
Gulp. Did I ever. As "fly on the wall" moments go, that one was pretty darn decent.

Mullah Omar Captured!

Through key intelligence sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan, I have just learned that reclusive Taliban leader and top Osama bin Laden ally, Mullah Omar has been taken into custody.

Big Government

According to the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program there is a bounty of up to $10 million on Omar for sheltering Osama bin-Laden and his al-Qaeda network in the years prior to the September 11 attacks as well as the period during and immediately thereafter.

At the end of March, US Military Intelligence was informed by US operatives working in the Af/Pak theater on behalf of the D.O.D. that Omar had been detained by Pakistani authorities. One would assume that this would be passed up the chain and that the Secretary of Defense would have been alerted immediately. From what I am hearing, that may not have been the case.

When this explosive information was quietly confirmed to United States Intelligence ten days ago by Pakistani authorities, it appeared to take the Defense Department by surprise. No one, though, is going to be more surprised than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It seems even with confirmation from the Pakistanis themselves, she was never brought up to speed.

Over the weekend, Clinton accused Pakistani Government officials of “holding back” on bin Laden intelligence. In an interview Sunday on CBS “60 Minutes,” she said:

“I believe that somewhere in this government are people who know where Usama bin Laden and Al Qaeda is, where Mullah Omar and the leadership of the Afghan Taliban is, and we expect more cooperation to help us bring to justice, capture or kill those who attacked us on 9/11.”

They know all right and so do we, at least when it comes to Mullah Omar. We have known since the end of March and we had it confirmed ten days ago by the Pakistanis. So why didn’t the State Department and the CIA know?

Former U.S. General Warns of Chemical Attacks Against Israel


Please CLICK HERE to see the Video.... " Former US General Warns of Chemical Attacks against Israel"

Gen. Paul Vallely speaks to PJTV exclusively and reveals how Iranian submarines are now equipping Israel's enemies with Scud missiles armed warheads filled with chemical weapons.

Former US General Warns of Chemical Attacks Against Israel

Potential Hezbollah offensive includes chemically armed SCUD missiles with a 450 km range, preemptive strikes on air fields, and a wave of tunnel attacks that cross from Lebanon into Israel.


May 6 ,2010


Major General Paul E. Vallely (Ret.) revealed sobering information regarding possible chemical and nuclear weapon activity by Iran and Hezbollah in an exclusive PJTV video. According to the retired Major General and sitting chairman of Save Our Democracy, Iran is planning a preemptive attack against Israel though its military proxy Hezbollah. A submarine in Beirut unloaded suspicious cargo that signaled the potential presence of chemical weapons. This news comes on the heels of Israel distributing gas masks to its 7.5 million citizens.

"Just in the last week, we have very definitive and confirmed information that Iran is planning a preemptive attack against Israel," said Major General Vallely during the PJTV interview. "The other event we just uncovered news on… is that a submarine docked in Beirut a little over a week ago… Off-loaders had gas masks on and hazmat gear, indicating, to me, that some sort of chemical weapons were being offloaded from the submarine to the control of Hezbollah…. That's why I call the summer of 2010 the tipping point for the Middle East."

PJTV has closely tracked Iran's development of nuclear weapons, critically analyzing the nation's immediate threat to the Middle East region. This new evidence and commentary illuminates the immediacy and reality of the Iranian weapons program growth. During the exclusive interview, Major General Vallely explained he believes Iran already has nuclear weapons. Now, it is simply a matter of figuring out how to load the technology onto the Shahab-3 – an Iranian-designed, medium-range ballistic missile.

The Major General also commented on long range SCUD missiles, tunnels from Lebanon into Israel, and Lebanon's possible use of child soldiers.

"The rearming of Hezbollah with thousands of SCUD missiles shows again the futility of the United Nations and the 2006 Lebanese-Israeli Resolution (1701)," noted Roger L. Simon, CEO of Pajamas Media. "It's no mystery Iran wants to develop a robust nuclear and chemical weapons program. Israel again may be standing alone this summer from potential attacks by Iran's agents – but this time possible chemical attacks from SCUDS that could reach Jerusalem and Tel Aviv raise the stakes to a completely new level."


Wild Thing's comment.........

General Vallely is a very credible source, he also used to be on Fox News as a military analyst. His son died in 2004, while going through Special Forces training.

This is very scary. I pray that the Israelis never face a chemical weapons attack!

If there is a chemical attack on Israel, Bibi WILL show them that he will not hesitate to hit back perhaps even twice as hard. I believe - especially if there is a biological or chemical attack on Israel - the he WILL turn at the LEAST Damascus into a sheet of glass... Perhaps Iran and Lebanon as well. Israel will be backed into a corner so to speak — especially with the pressure upon them from even their allies to disarm — and I don’t think there is anything or anyone on Earth who would be able to stop them from retaliating (nor, IMHO, should anyone try).

Many prayers for the Israelis. I can tell you one thing, the US shoots down ONE Isreali plane and it will be over for the US within hours. Even the rhetoric coming from the US government now and Obamaggedon’s behaviour and speech are poking God directly in the eye. The Bible definitely says that Damascus will be a heap of ruins, never to rise again. One must remember that Damascus is the oldest city on earth. The Isreali’s and more specifically God, are not fooling around anymore.

L.A. Teacher Calls for Mexican Revolt in the U.S.

L.A. Teacher Calls for Mexican Revolt in the U.S.

These two paragraphs below are the comments of the person who posted the youtube:

"Where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico"....Calif. tax dollars at work. More gems: 'Communist Revolution', 'Frail, racist white people', 'La Raza' (the Race), Fidel Castro, 'Northern Front of Latin Revolution'..."40 the belly of the beast". "Our enemy is Capitalism and Imperialism".

We are revolutionary Mexican organization here. We understand that this is not just about Mexico. Its about a global struggle against imperialism and capitalism At the forefront of this revolutionary movement is La Raza. We will no longer fall for these lies called borders. We see America as a northern front of a revolutionary movement Our enemy is capitalism and imperialism.


Wild Thing's comment........

Semper paratus...ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ...Lock and Load

My message to this piece of human waste matter? BRING IT ON!! FU La Raza. You hate capitalism? You hate freedom? You want Marxist revolution? Go to Cuba or Venezuela where you are free to live in pig squalor. Or back to corrupt/socialist Mexico.

The ass clown should go down to Venezula and live under the yoke of (his buddy) Hugo Chavez for a while. I’m sure he’d be able to enjoy the kind of free speech he does in this capitalist, imperialist society.

If such an open call for war is not stemmed at the roots, the United States WILL be facing a civil war in a decade or less.

Time for this poor excuse of a professor to take to Mexico, lets see how long he last there.

GOP Sen. Sessions: "Unacceptable" that Obama Supreme Court Pick Banned Military Recruiters from Harvard

GOP Sen. Sessions: "Unacceptable" that Obama Supreme Court Pick Banned Military Recruiters from Harvard

GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions saying yesterday that it is "unacceptable" that Obama Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan banned military recruiters from Harvard when she was Dean of the Harvard Law School. Kagan did so because she disagreed with the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on gays in the military.

Sessions said:

"She would not allow the military recruiters to come onto the Law School in order to recruit JAG officers for the military because she didn't agree with the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy President Clinton had adopted - and they just wouldn't let them come on campus. We had 1,000 soldiers killed defending free speech and the right of Harvard to exist in freedom during that period of time. So, I think that would be something that would be asked.
She felt that this was discriminatory, but it was the established policy of the United States, President Clinton's policy. She could work to change that, but I don't believe it was acceptable for her to say 'You can't even come on our campus because I disagree with your policy."


Wild Thing's comment........

Sessions is one of a very small handful of principled men in DC.. I can think of about 10 that I respect a lot and we know they are conservative and consistently conservative as well.

She’s anti- life and anti-military. Obama picks people like himself.

Mexican Standoff by Charlie Daniels


"Simple Man "...with lyrics, Charlie Daniels


The rant below is titled Mexican Standoff and was penned by Charlie Daniels , a startling reminder of the old saying: "The more things change, the more they stay the same"

Mexican Standoff

by Charlie Daniels

I don't know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I think Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally, made a huge public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

I don't blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the United States of America , as it is a truly wonderful place.

But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I don't care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start trying to give me sensitivity lessons.

I don't need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don't have any-thing against Mexicans! I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes into this country illegally is a criminal and if you don't believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how far you get. What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tanta-mount to saying, "I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there's nothing you can do about it."

It's an "in your face" action and speaking just for me, I don't like it one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn't be happening.

Where are you, you bunch of lily livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?

And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork laden and watered down that it won't mean anything anyway Besides, what good is another law going to do when you won't enforce the ones on the books now?

And what ever happened to the polls, guys? I thought you folks were the quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain't paying any attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans want some thing done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger everyday.

This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can't happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?

If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grand-children will inherit. But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get re-elected.

Shame on you.

One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to say anything derogatory about any group of people (except Christians) you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you

Well I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and rollin' and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not.

And the truth is that the gutless, gonadless, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the United States of America because they don't have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to face reality.

And reality is that we would never allow any other group of people to have 12 million illegal in this country and turn around and say, "Oh it's ok, ya'll can stay here if you'll just allow us to slap your wrist."

And I know that some of you who read this column are saying "Well what's wrong with that?"

I'll tell you what's wrong with it. These people could be from Mars as far as we know. We don't know who they are, where they are or what they're up to and the way the Congress is going we're not going to.

Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize corporate agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well?

If these people were from Haiti would we be so fast to turn a blind eye to them or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan ?

I think not.

All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have crossed the border just to try to better their life.

They don't show you pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13, the violent gang who came across the same way the decent folks did. They don't tell you about the living conditions of the Mexican illegal some fat cat hired to pick his crop.

I want to make two predictions.

No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in violence on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes in the dirt and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can make to the acre.

No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon of mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after which there will be a backlash such as this country has never experienced and the Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt as Congressmen and Senators rush to the other side of the issue.

I don't know about you but I would love to see just one major politician stand up and say, "I don't care who I make mad and I don't care how many votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I'm going to lead the fight to get it straightened out."

I don't blame anybody for wanting to come to America , but if you don't respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others?

And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes Please get that other one out of my face.

God Bless America

Imposing Islam in Your Public School in Six Easy Steps

Imposing Islam in Your Public School in Six Easy Steps

by Pamela Geller

Check out this "instruction sheet" to Muslims on how to islamicize their public schools. There is no separation of mosque and state -- mosque is state in Islam.

If this guide shows us anything, it's what idiots they take us for. This is, of course, an outrage. None of this should be introduced into the public school. If this is what Muslim parents want, they should send their children to madrassah.

This is an Islamic site -- Sound Vision Islamic Products and Information

By Sound Vision Staff writer

Does your child need a prayer room to perform Zuhr in during lunchtime? Does he need time off for Juma? Or do you want to convince a teacher or principal to give your daughter the day off for Eid-ul-Fitr?

Whatever Islamic obligation you want accommodated at your child's school, it must be done in a methodical, clear and proper manner.

Shabbir Mansuri is founding director of the Council on Islamic Education in Fountain Valley, California.

He provides tips and advice on how to get religious accommodation for your child.

Step #1: know the laws about religious freedom

Knowing what laws and regulations govern the issue of religious accommodation is crucial before attempting to reach the right authorities. It is also important to understand what is defined as a "reasonable limit" on religious freedom.

See Laws You Need To Know About for the specifics.

In the United States, one of the strongest arguments in favor of seeking religious accommodation for your child is former President Bill Clinton's 1995 statement of principles addressing the extent to which religious expression and activity are permitted in public school. This was given to every school district in the US.

Get the help of other officials if necessary to properly understand these laws. A good place to check with is The Freedom Forum First Amendment Center. They have produced a booklet entitled A Parent's Guide to Religion in the Public Schools. You can call them at .

Step #2: get the support of a teacher
"[The first thing I would do is] arm myself with that piece of information and then set up a meeting with the principal of the school along with one of my favorite teachers at the school who will be very supportive, requesting that my son or daughter should be either permitted to [for example] go out to perform Juma prayer at a local Masjid and/or be allowed to perform Juma prayer along with other Muslim students on the school campus," says Mansuri.

Getting the support of a teacher is crucial. It indicates to the principal that the religious accommodation you are seeking will not interfere with your child's performance as a student.

Mansuri says that in most cases, these two steps are all that are needed to get religious accommodation from your child's school.

However, if the principal refuses to grant the accommodation, step three will be necessary.

Step #3: leave a paper trail, but first, be really nice
"If you find the meeting is not going anywhere then leave a paper trail, meaning, write letters. But before I do that, I would try to do it in a very non-confrontational way by simply sitting down with the principal and a teacher," says Mansuri.

"Try to understand this process where I want to make sure this is not us versus them, but simply the notion of my exercising my constitutional rights in the most respected [way] with compassionate manners, leaving my ‘baseball bat'," he explains, referring to an approach that is harsh and confrontational.

Mansuri even suggests inviting the teacher and principal over for dinner as a gesture of goodwill.

Step #4: writing to the supportive teacher

"My first letter would be to my kid's favorite teacher to ask the person's advice," advises Mansuri. "The letter will be to request to meet with teacher, and it will indicate I want to discuss with you my child's religious needs and I would like to share with you what our president has instructed the teachers and schools to accommodate them." (See a sample letter to the teacher)

Following the meeting, a thank you letter to the teacher should be sent. It will also indicate you would like to set up second meeting with the school's principal, and ask the teacher if s/he would be kind enough to go with you to discuss the topics the two of you talked about in your first meeting (see a sample thank you letter to the teacher).

"This will leave two or three letters," notes Mansuri, but in each letter "the tone of my letter should be my bringing the information as politely as I can. (I am trying to) maintain my rights for the schools to accommodate my child's religious needs. So it's a non-threatening letter."

Step #5: meeting a second time with the principal

Before attending this second meeting with the principal and teacher, "I would also arm myself with the district's education code along with the state educational code as it relates to the topics that I'm going to discuss," says Mansuri.

This can be done by simply calling your district and the state office and asking them to give you the specific educational code that relates to the religious obligation you are seeking accommodation for. That office would fax you the information the same or next day.

Once again, Mansuri stresses that the approach in discussing the matter a second time with the principal should not be confrontational.

"While meeting with the teacher and/or principal, I'm not trying to win an argument by telling them how much I know but rather giving them a very clear understanding that while I understand my rights as a parent, I'm simply there to help them accommodate my child's needs that they are supposed to do anyway," explains Mansuri.

"Make it a win-win situation, not an us versus them situation, and that in itself is the message of Islam."

By this step, Mansuri says your child should have his/her need(s) accommodated.

Step #6: if necessary, repeat these steps with the school district’s superintendent

You can repeat the letters and meet with the school district superintendent if the principal still does not accommodate. The superintendent is responsible for all schools in a particular district. Once again, the approach must remain polite and non-confrontational.

Since the president's instructions were issued to districts, it is possible superintendents may be more familiar with them. This should mean your son or daughter will get religious accommodation with no further problems.


Wild Thing's comment........

Look at every other country/culture in history where Islam has taken over. Freedom and self-determination are lost forever. It should not be tolerated anywhere in the US. It is a plague that will be released like a destroying cancer as soon as it’s tenacles spread to every populated area of America.

The Pocono Mountains New Haven For Terrorists

The Pocono Mountains New Haven For Terrorists

by Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania has become a staging area for terrorism and the establishment of a universal caliphate.

The latest evidence supporting this claim comes from Faisal Shahzad’s trip to Matamoras, at the foothills of the Poconos, where he purchased boxes of M-88s from a fireworks store.

The high powered firecrackers, which sell for $10.00 a box, ended up as detonators for a crude bomb that Shahzad tried to set off in Times Square last weekend.

Matamoras is less than an hour’s drive from the George Washington Bridge.

Fifteen miles from Matamoras is Saylorsburg, a sleepy rural Pocono community, where powerful Turkish pasha Fethullah Gulen has established a 45 acre mountain fortress. The fortress remains protected by 100 Turkish guards and a sentry post. Local residents have complained of automatic gunfire coming from the complex and of a low flying helicopter that surveys the area for would-be intruders.

Gulen, who has been labeled “the most dangerous Islamist in the world,” has amassed a fortune in excess of $25 billion for use in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the established of a New Islamic World Order.

In 1998, Gulen fled to the United States from his native Turkey to avoid prosecution on charges that he was attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular government in order to establish an Islamic republic.

With his vast fortune, Gulen established the Justice and Democratic Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma or AKP) which gained control of Turkey in 2002.

Under the AKP, Turkey has transformed from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques – - one for every 350- citizens – - the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians – - and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.

The tentacles of Gulen’s movement now stretch throughout central Asia, including the newly formed Russian republics of Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmernistan which are becoming increasingly Islamic and radicalized.

Gulen has also established thousands of madrassahs (Islamic religious schools) throughout the world, including 85 in the United States.

The Poconos have lured other radical Muslims, including the six terrorists who sought to inflict mass casualties at Fort Dix, a military base in New Jersey.

In February 2007, the would-be terrorists rented a place in Big Bass Lake, a gated community of 1,400 homes in the tiny Pocono town of Gouldsboro.

During their month-long stay at Big Bass Lake, the six radical Muslims – - all foreign-born and in their 20s, rented a public firing range to practice attacks on the military base.

Because of its close proximity to New York and other major metropolitan areas, the Poconos appears an ideal place to launch terror attacks on U.S. soil.

“We still have very remote areas. These people can come and get lost,” says Robert G. Werts, program manager for the Northeast Pennsylvania Terrorism Task Force.

John Horgan, director of the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at Penn State University, maintains that it’s not unusual for terrorists and radical Islamists to seek out areas that lie beneath the radar screen.

“It’s precisely because they’re overlooked that they’re attractive,” Mr. Horgan says. “In these rural areas, you’re not subject to the intense surveillance.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

There are others, one of them is the one in the foothills of the Catskills in NY too. Islamberg.

Where is the bloodhound American ‘free press’ who doggedly overturned every stone in the Watergate case? Where are our nation’s reporters that have placed every Presidential candidate under the microscope of detailed scrutiny; the same press who pursue Bush’s ‘Skull and Bones’ club or ran other candidates off with persistent detective and research work? Why haven’t ‘newsmen’ pursued the 65 blatant lies told by this candidate during the Presidential primaries?

Why has the federal government opted to turn a blind eye to Gulen and his mountain fortress?

There is terrorism we can see, smell and fear, but there is a new kind of terror invading The United States in the form of Sharia law and finance. Condoning it is civilization suicide. Middle East Muslims are coming to America in record numbers and building hate infidel mosques, buying our corporations, suing us for our traditions, but they and the whole subject of Islam is white noise leaving uninformed Americans about who and what is really peaceful.

Is it mere coincidence this same candidate wants to dis-arm our nuclear capability at a time when terrorist Muslim nations are expanding their nuclear weapons capability?

Elena Kagan To Be Obama's New Supreme Court Nominee

NBC News is reporting that Obama will nominate U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan to be the next Supreme Court Justice.

Kagan would be another liberal, replacing the liberal Justice Stevens who is stepping down. The balance on the court would remain a precarious 5-4 conservative majority, with Justice Kennedy sometimes voting on the liberal side of the ledger.

U.S. solicitor general, 2009-present; dean, Harvard Law School, 2003-09; professor of law, Harvard Law School, 2001; visiting professor, Harvard Law School, 1999-2001; deputy assistant to President Bill Clinton for domestic policy and deputy director of the Domestic Policy Council, 1997-99; associate counsel to President Bill Clinton, 1995-96; professor, University of Chicago Law School, 1991-95; worked in private practice, Washington, 1989-91; law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, 1987-88; clerked for Judge Abner Mikva of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, 1986-87.

EDUCATION — Princeton University, bachelor's, 1981; Worcester College at Oxford, master's, 1983; Harvard Law School, law degree, 1986.

QUOTE — "I like to think that one of the good things about me is that I know what I don't know and that I figure out how to learn it when I need to learn it."

Kagan was credited by the ACLU with “shaping Clinton’s policy on hate crimes,” Wright noted.

“The Clinton Administration treated pro-life activists like violent criminals, creating a task force in the Department of Justice and a grand jury to investigate peaceful pro-lifers. This raises serious concerns that she shares the hostile view that religious beliefs are a form of ‘hate,’” she said.

Kagan may be sympathetic to the views of internationalists, those who would impose international norms on Americans, including an unlimited abortion right.

From The Weekly Standard:

Elena Kagan's senior thesis, written almost thirty years ago while an undergraduate at Princeton. The title of the thesis: "To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933"'

"In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalism's glories than of socialism's greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation. Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force? Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nation's established parties?"(pp. 127)

Even Wikipedia boasts that Kagan is a gay activist: “During her deanship, Kagan supported a long-standing policy barring military recruiters from campus, because she felt that the military’s Don’t ask, don’t tell policy discriminated against gays and lesbians. According to Campus Progress,”

More significantly, perhaps, when Kagan became Dean of the Law school she put through a change in the basic law program. Beginning law students at Harvard no longer got the basic course in Common Law that had been taught for more than a century.

Wild Thing's comment........

Note also she has never served as a Judge.

She could care less about common law, natural law, tradition, or the Constitution. It would be her job to remake the country in a leftist image.

When she was at Harvard, she opposed military recruiting and other presence on campus because she opposed "don't ask, don't tell", not because it allowed some homosexuals in the military, but because it "discriminated" against them. I imagine she's not too fond of the Boy Scouts either.

Obama Supporters Paint "Burn This Racist City" On Arizona Sidewalk!

Anti-Arizona protesters spray painted “burn this racist city” on Phoenix sidewalks:


Will this simple action put an end to 'Obamnesty'?
Send letters to Senate ... and to governor who fought back!


An anti-amnesty campaign that generated 50,000 individual letters to senators in the first week has added a new twist – sending additional letters of encouragement to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed legislation authorizing local law-enforcement agencies to identify illegal aliens.

"The No Amnesty Pledge," a campaign designed to thwart consideration of "comprehensive immigration reform" in Congress, is now also affording citizens the opportunity to thank Arizona.

Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, says he hopes to emulate the famous "pink slips" campaign that inundated Capitol Hill with nearly 10 million threats to fire members of Congress who, among other things, supported national health care and cap-and-trade legislation.

"Amnesty will spell the death knell of this country," says the organizer of the campaign designed to flood the U.S. Senate with letters of sharp protest. Amnesty will tear this country apart," says Farah. "When 70 percent of Americans support Arizona's dramatic and courageous action to fill the void of federal failure on policing our borders, Washington is about to flout the will of the people once again. This is a brazen action to buy illegal votes.

This is utter contempt for the rule of law and the will of the people. It must be stopped. This will be a genie that cannot be placed back in the bottle."

To combat it, Farah came up with "The No Amnesty Pledge."

It's an easy and inexpensive way for American citizens to make their voice heard effectively throughout the entire U.S. Senate – reaching all 100 members with "The No Amnesty Pledge," he says. And all at a cost of just $24.95.

"I want you to visualize boxes of these protest messages arriving in every member's office every day," explains Farah. "They are guaranteed to be delivered by Fed Ex. It's the power of collective action. It demonstrates that we mean business – that Americans will not accept the destruction of their country lying down."

If you're tired of jammed Capitol switchboards, fax machines getting turned off and the hassle of writing letters only to your own representative and two senators, this program offers you a real bargain in getting your voice heard in Washington.

A dozen members of Congress sent unsolicited testimonials to the power of the "pink slips" campaign, both in changing minds and emboldening the opposition. Five members of Congress held a press conference on the Capitol grounds to commend the program. Sen. Jim DeMint went on Fox News Channel to extol it.
"This is a powerful new vehicle that allows busy Americans to be part of a major demonstration of power and discontent," says Farah. "Don't wait. Who knows how quickly the Senate may act on this plan to increase the size of the constituency of those who know their days are numbered."

Meanwhile, here is the text of the letter of encouragement to Arizona Gov. Brewer:

"Thank you for your courage in taking a stand on behalf of all American citizens through the signing of the recent illegal alien legislation.
"It is the federal government that has failed your state and the rest of our country by not following the Constitution. Article IV, Section 4 states: 'The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.'
"There is little question that a silent invasion of our country has been underway for too long. The action taken by you and your legislature is restrained, reasonable and common-sensical. Washington is not living up to its own promises to build the border fence that would alleviate many of the problems Arizona and other border states are having.
"I hope this letter serves as encouragement to you and your citizens. America stands with you and appreciates you."

Like the letters to the U.S. senators, each letter to Gov. Brewer is personally and appropriately addressed, includes the name of the sender and is shipped by Fed Ex.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is what happens when a governor wants to protect the citizens of her state by enforcing existing immigration laws.

Obama has brought back the riots. Can you imagine if Obama had reacted differently and said he is FOR the law, for the laws of our country. His attack on the Gov. of Arizona and his pro stance on illegals fuels these riots.

No Apology Song - The Case for Ameican Greatness

A song about America’s greatness. Inspired by Mitt Romney’s book, " No Apology"

Here are the lyrics:

Way back in ‘73, we had a tea party

and speedy Paul Revere said “The British are here.”

But ’round the world a shot was heard

We fought them off in Concord

The British took Boston, never knowin’ what it’d cost ‘em

They fought they’d broken our will

but there were cannons on the hill…

So then in ‘76 we said “goodbye” to the Brits

It took all of us to beat Cornwallis

Despite risk of retribution we signed the Constitution

and King George realized… that we would not…

We won’t apologize for what we symbolize

for letting freedom grow, for standing up and saying “no”

We won’t apologize for the Bill of Rights

for independence we will not apologize.

In the 19th Century we had a Great Awakening

and then President Monroe said: “Stay on your side of the globe!”

We brought in Texas — just as proud as the rest of us

We spread west to the Pacific, thought California was terrific

Yankees: “Slavery’s gotta end!”

Dixie: “Amendment Number 10!”

Then U.S. Grant and Robert E. Lee agreed on unity

We won’t apologize ‘cuz we can compromise

that we will stand and fight for what we think is right

We won’t apologize ‘cuz Lincoln ratified

and gave the slaves their rights

We don’t apologize.

The Industrial Revolution was the peak of our pollution

Cars and phones and planes and flight, vaccines and electric light

DuPont and JP Morgan, assembly lines and Henry Ford and

the allies need an ally ’till the Treaty of Versailles

The Great Depression was on from ‘29 to ‘41

Hitler was in power, it was Europe’s darkest hour

but after Pearl Harbor and our ability to labor

the giant awoke and we all took up the yoke

We don’t apologize for saving foreign lives

for defending our freedoms, our children and our wives

Did we isolate and cower? Or become a superpower?

No, we organized and we didn’t apologize.

Russia, Cuba, and China put their freedoms behind them

but Korea never fell past the 38th parallel

Should we have gone to Panama or Vietnam?

How could Reagan talk so tough to resilient Gorbachev?

Then the UN turned their back on the suffering in Iraq

How could we think to liberate with the world just yelling, “wait”?

Until September 11th 3,000 souls went up to heaven

and their lives we eulogize

And we will never, never…

We’ll never apologize.

Should we turn and flee from the cause of liberty?

Or cross the ocean and die so that others can be free?

Are we sorry we fight and die to answer freedom’s cry?

asking only a space to place…

our dead.

asking only a space to place…

our dead.

Should we apologize for saving foreign lives?

For standing against evil and not covering our eyes?

Should we hang head for the movement we led?

Or the truth that we said, or the hope that we spread?

There is no policy, no new hip philosophy

There is no prosperity, no new ideology

There is no kind of peace, no breadth of security

There is no community, no type of earthly beauty

There’s nothing like life when you are free

and for that we offer no apology.


In the book No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and radical Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded. From the long-term decline of our manufacturing base, our laggard educational system that has left us without enough engineers, scientists, and other skilled professionals, our corrupted financial practices that led to the current crisis, and the crushing impact of entitlements on our future obligations, America is in debt, overtaxed, and unprepared for the challenges it must face.
Personal and dynamically-argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America’s history, its promise, and its future.

6 Will Be Tried In Mob Incident Against Modesto Police Officer

6 will be tried in mob incident against Modesto police officer

The Modesto Bee

Six suspected Norteño gang members must face a jury on charges they mobbed a lone Modesto officer and his police dog a year ago, a judge said Friday.

The men face counts of "lynching," a term for removing a suspect from police custody, delaying or obstructing a peace officer using force or violence, resisting arrest and gang enhancements. They allegedly moved a man who had been bit by the police dog during a melee in southwest Modesto.

One of the suspects sustained severe cuts to his neck from the police dog, a defense attorney said, calling the police response a "misuse of force."

Attorney Scott Lyon of Modesto said Alfredo Espinoza, who faces a charge of resisting arrest with a gang enhancement, was fighting to stay alive.

"The officer never made an attempt to place Mr. Espinoza in custody but instead used the police dog to attack ... to keep the pressure of the crowd away from himself," Lyon said.
Prosecutor Tom Brennan said he would not make any deals with the defendants, who face up to eight years in prison.
"I must send a strong message to the gang that they do not control the neighborhoods, despite their best efforts to do so," Brennan said after the hearing in Stanislaus County Superior Court.

According to Brennan:

The incident began about 2 a.m. on Pelton Avenue on March 29, 2009.

Officer James Murphy happened upon the crowd, estimated to be about 30 people, while responding to a report of a stolen car.

Murphy saw a fistfight between Espinoza and another man. As Murphy tried to break up the fight, the crowd's attention shifted to him. The crowd surrounded Murphy, and he sent his dog into the group in an attempt to stop them.

The dog got hold of Espinoza, but the crowd pulled him away from Murphy.

Some in the crowd then challenged Murphy to a fight and one person attacked him, police said.

Murphy's two-way radio was broken during the struggle. He then pulled his gun to hold off the crowd as he tried to tell neighbors to call 911. Someone in the crowd had a police scanner and told the rest of the crowd that other officers weren't responding to the scene.

Backup units responded after calls from other residents.

Officers responding to the scene stopped a vehicle and found Espinoza inside. The driver, Andrew Mitchell, and the passenger, Matthew Reyes, were arrested.

Mitchell denied helping Espinoza evade arrest. He said he was taking Espinoza to the hospital because of the wounds he suffered from Murphy's dog.

Three other suspects were arrested at the scene of the struggle — Junior Suarez, William Rodriguez and Reynaldo Herrera.

Coverage of the incident, posted on the Drudge Report's Web site, struck a nerve, prompting online comments, phone calls and e-mails from across the country to The Bee. Some linked the confrontation to the recent shooting deaths of four Oakland police officers, which exposed a deep divide between police and residents there.

The six Modesto men will return to court May 21 to be formally charged.

And look at this......
The Real Cost of Illegal's

Conclusions: Twenty-five Americans die at the hands of criminal aliens every day in the U.S. (12 murders + 10 drunk-driving fatalities + 3 negligent homicides = 25 deaths every day) In the year 2005, criminal aliens killed more than three times the number of Americans murdered in the terrorist attacks of 9-11 died. 9,125 Americans died at the hands of criminal aliens in 2005, as compared to approximately 3,000 Americans who perished in 9-11.

Liz Cheney on FOX News Sunday~ "Obama's First Instinct Is to Inform the Terrorist That He’s Got the Right to Remain Silent”

Liz Cheney on FOX News Sunday

Liz Cheney criticized the Obama administration’s handling of attempted Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad as “insufficient.” Speaking on the Fox News Sunday’s panel, Cheney insisted that the administration’s “first instinct is to inform him [Shahzad] that he’s got the right to remain silent”:

CHENEY: When the administration captures a terrorist and their first instinct is to inform him that he’s got the right to remain silent, that is exactly the wrong way to win this war. When we capture a terrorist, our first instinct has got to be: How do we understand the networks to which this terrorist is connected? How do we understand where he was trained? How do we understand who the leadership is? The administration is approaching this, and again this morning you had John Brennan saying, “Well, this was one-off because he drove the truck alone.” That doesn’t even make sense, it’s inexplicable. But if you aren’t willing to acknowledge that you’re facing a committed network of terrorists as your enemies, and that it’s radical jihadist Islam, then your response to that is gonna be, by definition, insufficient time and time again.


Wild Thing's comment........

Add in to what she said, the fact that Obama has:

determined to deny that radical Islam has declared war on America.

not use words like jihad, sharia, or Islamic radicalism in their reports.

Islam Becomes Taboo Topic on TV in Wake of 'South Park' Threats and Times Square Scare

Islam Becomes Taboo Topic on TV in Wake of 'South Park' Threats and Times Square Scare

By Jo Piazza

It isn’t worth endangering the safety of an entire staff or network by pursuing a storyline that Muslim extremists might find offensive, media executives and writers tell

Don't mess with Allah. That's the new, unwritten code in Hollywood following the one-two punch of Islamic extremists' threats against the creators of "South Park" and the failed bombing attempt outside the cartoon’s parent company, Viacom, in New York's Times Square.

In the current, supercharged climate, it just isn’t worth endangering the safety of an entire production staff or network by pursuing a storyline that Muslim extremists might find offensive, media executives and writers tell

Aasif Mandvi, a self-described “liberal Muslim” and the “senior Islamic correspondent” for Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, said on air after the “South Park” threats that it would upset him to see the Prophet Muhammad depicted in a cartoon. But, he added: “Here’s what’s more upsetting. Someone, in the name of a faith that I believe in, threatening another person for doing it.”

But after the failed Times Square terror attack, "The Daily Show" asked Mandvi not to comment further on the matter, according to his spokesman. In fact, reps for the networks and television shows reached for comment on this article, including Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, FOX, NBC, and CBS, either failed to respond or asked to speak on background for fear of retribution.

And it isn’t just comedians on fake newscasts who are being muzzled. One writer for a scripted drama fold that in one of his show's final episodes, there had been a minor plot point involving a Muslim extremist. Last week it was removed and the script was rewritten, he said.

Hussein Rashid, religion professor and religion dispatches associate editor at Hofstra University, said he is concerned that self-censorship will lead to a shutdown of the dialogue that must continue if people can be brought to understand the true meaning of Islam.

“I don’t think it is ever smart to self-censor,” Rashid told “I am a big believer that the response to speech should always be more speech. I think this ‘South Park’ episode has been good for that conversation.”

But when it comes to Islam, the conversation seems only to be getting quieter.

Random House canceled the 2008 publication of Sherry Jones’ “The Jewel of Medina” out of fear it would incite acts of violence, and last year Yale University decided remove all images of Muhammad from Jytte Klausen's book, “The Cartoons that Shook the World,” a book commenting on the Danish cartoon controversy that sparked violence in the Muslim world.

The subject has gotten so sensitive, media pros are even chilling the conversation in forums where no one is watching.

“The writer’s room has always been a safe place for jokes of any sort, the dirtiest jokes you can think of that you could never tell in public because your own mother would hate you,” a network comedy writer told “But for the first time we feel like there is a taboo.”

But religion in general hasn’t become taboo -- just Islam. The Cartoon Network squeaked under the radar in March when it showed a racy depiction of Jesus voiced by jailed rapper Lil' Wayne. And Comedy Central is developing "JC," a half-hour cartoon about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City.

One show recently appeared willing to go out on a limb. The April 27 episode of the CBS series “The Good Wife” featured a storyline in which a newspaper editor was killed for publishing an editorial cartoon showing the Prophet Muhammad being searched by airport security officers.

But that episode was written and filmed before the "South Park" threats, and it aired before the Times Square terror scare. Whether the same script would be written today is an open question.

"A liberal democracy depends on the principle that each person is entitled to hold and express his or her own beliefs," said Svetlana Mintcheva, director of the Arts Program for the National Coalition Against Censorship. "The failure to stand up for free expression emboldens those who would attack and undermine it.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Good grief, sure let's all just cave in to Islam and let them rule and have their way all they want.

This is exactly what the Islam agenda is hoping for.

Obama Announced The US Will Attack Pakistan If There’s a Successful Terror Attack In The US.

New York Times

The Obama Administration announced today that the US will attack Pakistan if there’s a successful terror attack in the US.

The Obama administration has delivered new and stiff warnings to Pakistan after the failed Times Square car bombing that it must urgently move against the nexus of Islamic militancy in the country’s lawless tribal regions, American and Pakistani officials said.

The American military commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, met with the Pakistani military chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, at his headquarters here on Friday and urged Pakistan to move more quickly in beginning a military offensive against the Pakistani Taliban and Al Qaeda in North Waziristan, Americans and Pakistanis familiar with the visit said. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the delicacy of continuing diplomatic efforts here.

The Pakistani-American man who admitted to the Times Square attack, Faisal Shahzad, 30, told American investigators that he had received training in North Waziristan, the main base for the Pakistani Taliban, Al Qaeda and other militant groups.

The new pressure from Washington was characterized by both the Pakistani and American officials as a sharp turnaround from the relatively polite encouragement adopted by the Obama administration in recent months.

“We are saying, ‘Sorry, if there is a successful attack, we will have to act’ ” within Pakistan, one of the American officials said.

That issue has been a source of growing tension between the countries. Pakistani officials, already alarmed by the increase in American drone aircraft attacks against militants in northwestern Pakistan, have been extremely sensitive about any hint that American ground troops could become involved in the fight. And attempts by the United States to increase the presence of Special Operations forces there even in an advisory or training role have been met with great resistance by the Pakistanis.


Wild Thing's comment........

There’s a big difference between telling the Pakistani government this, and making a public statement about it. By going public, Obama has just invited a serious attack. I’d like to know how many people have to die for the attack to be categorized as successful by the OBlahblah administration. 1,000? 10,000? Somehow I don’t think the Pakies are quacking in their sandals.

It was Obama that overturned Bush’s policy and put the terrorist in New York last week on the fast track to citizenship.

Hillary on 60 Minutes: "Very Severe Consequences" If Terror Attack Can Be Traced Back to Pakistan

Watch CBS News Videos Online


Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the Pakistani government has been warned that if a terror operation like the failed Times Square bombing were to be successful and found to be originated in their country, "there would be very severe consequences."

Clinton also acknowledged Pakistan's increased cooperation in the war on terror, but said the U.S. wants and expects even more from the Muslim nation.

The interview was conducted in Washington Friday by "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley for a report to be broadcast this Sunday, May 9, at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

"We've made it very clear that if, heaven-forbid, an attack like this that we can trace back to Pakistan were to have been successful, there would be very severe consequences," Clinton tells Pelley. The car bomb that fizzled out in Time Square last week was planted by Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen who was born in Pakistan and says he had terrorist training there.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to Barack Obama: “No One In Arizona Is Laughing”

Governor Jan Brewer from Arizona released this message to “comedian” Barack Obama today. Unlike Barack Obama, the people of Arizona don’t think illegal immigration is a laughing matter.

From the video: Governor Jan Brewer sparked a national debate on border security and illegal immigration when she signed SB1070. While Brewer has been celebrated by many for taking action to enforce laws that Washington has long ignored, those who oppose the law have chosen pithy punch lines over aggressive action. Far away from the border at the White House Correspondents Dinner, Obama decided that Arizonas unsecured borders and illegal immigration crisis are a laughing matter. Unfortunately, no one in Arizona is laughing.

This is simply great. Jan Brewer is a terrific and brave governor for Arizona.

Nashville Flood Is Biggest Disaster to Hit Middle Tennessee Since Civil War

Flood waters cover parts of Downtown of Nashville, Tennessee after Cumberland River overflowed its bank from record rain fall May 4, 2010. Severe storms and flash floods left more than a dozen people dead in Tennessee and Kentucky over the weekend as rising river waters closed portions of interstate highways leading in and out of Nashville. (REUTERS/M. J. Masotti Jr.)

Jim sent me is from Patten Fuqua is a hockey blogger in Nashville.

What I am about to write has absolutely nothing to do with hockey.
If you live outside of Nashville, you may not be aware, but our city was hit by a 500-year flood over the last few days. The national news coverage gave us 15 minutes, but went back to focusing on a failed car bomb and an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. While both are clearly important stories, was that any reason to ignore our story? It may not be as terror-sexy as a failed car bomb or as eco-sexy as an oil spill, but that’s no reason to be ignored.
The Cumberland River crested at its highest level in over 80 years. Nashville had its highest rainfall totals since records began. People drowned. Billions of dollars in damage occurred. It is the single largest disaster to hit Middle Tennessee since the Civil War. And yet…no one knows about it.
Does it really matter? Eventually, it will…as I mentioned, there are billions of dollars in damage. It seems bizarre that no one seems to be aware that we just experienced what is quite possibly the costliest non-hurricane disaster in American history. The funds to rebuild will have to come from somewhere, which is why people need to know. It’s hard to believe that we will receive much relief if there isn’t a perception that we need it.
But let’s look at the other side of the coin for a moment. A large part of the reason that we are being ignored is because of who we are. Think about that for just a second. Did you hear about looting? Did you hear about crime sprees? No…you didn’t. You heard about people pulling their neighbors off of rooftops. You saw a group of people trying to move two horses to higher ground. No…we didn’t loot. Our biggest warning was, “Don’t play in the floodwater.” When you think about it…that speaks a lot for our city. A large portion of why we were being ignored was that we weren’t doing anything to draw attention to ourselves. We were handling it on our own.
Some will be quick to find fault in the way rescue operations were handled, but the fact of the matter is that the catastrophe could not have been prevented and it is simply ignorant beyond all reason to suggest otherwise. It is a flood. It was caused by rain. You can try to find a face to stick this tragedy to, but you’ll be wrong.
Parts of Nashville that could never even conceivably be underwater were underwater. Some of them still are. Opry Mills and the Opryland Hotel are, for all intents and purposes, destroyed. People died sitting in standstill traffic on the Interstate. We saw boats going down West End. And, of course, we all saw the surreal image of the portable building from Lighthouse Christian floating into traffic and being destroyed when cars were knocked into it. I’m still having trouble comprehending all of it.
And yet…life will go on. We’ll go back to work, to school, to our lives…and we’ll carry on. In a little over a month, I’ll be on this website talking about the draft. In October, we’ll be discussing the new Predators’ season with nary a thought of these past few days. But in a way, they changed everyone in this town. We now know that that it can happen to us…but also know that we can handle it.


Wild Thing's comment.......

The national media gave this disaster only 15 minutes this entire week:

John Rich on Rush earlier and he composed and recorded a song about the flood . Free download of the song available on

........and there is also a donation button on the site to help those who’ve pretty much lost everything because of the flood.

God bless the people of Tennessee.

Singer Taylor Swift gave half a million to the flood victims fund. God bless her for her generosity.

Idiot on CNN said he could not believe all the volunteer help that has come out to help their neighbors in Nashville...He was amazed !!!!!


Responsible people help others....This is exactly why Tennessee is known as the “Volunteer State”...

Has France offered any help? Has Germany offered any help? Has Mexico offered any help? Has haiti offered any help?

Has the UN offered any help?

The floods in Tennessee have devastated Nashville. Damages are estimated at $1 billion.

How to donate/pitch in....Michelle Malkin has a list at her blog.

VA To Limit Surgeries At Some Hospitals

VA to limit surgeries at some hospitals

ARMY Times

In a move that could force some veterans to travel farther for surgery or have their operations at nonveterans hospitals, VA officials are imposing a new grading system on its 112 in-patient treatment facilities that will rank their abilities to do complex, intermediate or standard procedures.

Beginning May 11, no elective surgery will be done at a VA medical center that exceeds the rating, said Dr. William Gunner, the VA’s director of surgery.

Emergency surgery still could be done if required, he said.

The facilities immediately affected will be the medical centers in Alexandria, La.; Beckley, W.Va.; Fayetteville, N.C.; Illiana, Ill.; and Spokane, Wash., all of which received the lowest ranking and have been performing surgeries now judged to be beyond their capabilities.

Gunner began briefing lawmakers about what he called the “surgery complexity initiative” on Thursday, but said in an interview that the grading system has been in use since March, when agreement was reached on how to judge the complexity of a procedure against the surgical capabilities of each medical center.

Grading for medical centers takes into consideration medical staffing, both for the operating room staff and surgical consultants who are available, plus equipment and diagnostic capabilities.

Of VA’s 112 in-patient surgical facilities, 66 have been approved for complex procedures and 33 for intermediate procedures.

Thirteen facilities are limited to standard procedures, Gunner said. A review of what procedures have been done in recent years at those facilities found that five of the 13 had done operations of greater complexity, he said.

The VA does about 357,000 surgical procedures a year, and only about 364 are above the complexity grade of the facility under the new scale, which means the impact on patients should be small.

VA officials promise to help with transportation of veterans who might have to travel farther for surgery.

Complex procedures are cardiac, brain and pancreas surgeries, according to VA officials. Intermediate procedures include colon resections, joint replacement and repairs of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Standard procedures include things like hernia repair, surgeries to the ear, nose and throat, and urologic operations.

Those needing elective surgery that is above the complexity approved for the facility will have the option of being transferred to the next closest VA location that is approved for the surgery or be sent to a nearby civilian facility at VA’s expense.

VA officials said medical center transportation officials will try to help a veteran who has been referred elsewhere.

The initiative is VA’s response to criticism of problems with surgical care at the medical center in Marion, Ill. The issues at that hospital, since resolved, involved physician credentialing, standards of care, peer review and quality management. A review ordered in September 2007 found problems at other VA medical centers as well.

VA officials stress they are not cutting services, but are instead trying to improve care by ensuring that a surgical program at a particular facility is qualified to do a procedure.

I pray our Vets and troops would get the best of care. I have heard stories of both, some getting great care and others that have had real horror stories.

Graham Prays at Pentagon, says 'Islam got a pass'

Graham prays at Pentagon, says 'Islam got a pass'

Stars and Stripes

Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted Muslims.

"It looks like Islam has gotten a pass," he told reporters. "They are able to have their services, but just because I disagree ... I'm excluded."

In 2001, Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, described Islam as evil. More recently, he said he finds Islam offensive and wants Muslims to know that Jesus Christ died for their sins. The Pentagon's chaplain office called those comments inappropriate and, at the request of the Army, withdrew Graham's invitation to attend a multi-denominational "National Day of Prayer" service that was held in the Defense Department auditorium.

He came anyway, arriving in the Pentagon parking lot just before 8 a.m. EDT - his party of a half dozen people forming a circle on the sidewalk and praying.

They stood there for about five minutes, heads bowed, as people arriving for work passed by - a man with a briefcase, one on a bike, a woman carrying breakfast pastry in a bag and another man carrying a skateboard.

Then the group walked to the Pentagon's Sept. 11 memorial roughly a couple of hundred feet away, where media had gathered because it's one of the few places were cameras are allowed on the Pentagon property. There, Graham held a news conference that lasted nearly twice as long as the prayer.

Asked why he had come, Graham said it was to pray for the men and women serving at the warfront, including his son, who he said had already been wounded in Iraq and now serves in Afghanistan.

He said he doesn't believe "all religions are equal" but does believe there is only "one way to God" - and that is through Jesus.
Asked if he still believes Islam is evil, he said: "I believe the way they treat women is evil, yes I do." And, can he understand how some of his comments would be offensive to Muslims? "Oh, I'm sure," he said. "But I find what they teach and what they preach and what's on the Internet - I find that to be offensive, too."

Another moment in the news conference, he said people shouldn't be offended because it's simply a disagreement in what people believe.

Graham said many American Christians "feel we are losing our freedoms while people of other faiths are gaining their freedom. It's a perception, whether it's right or wrong."

While Graham spoke outside, some 80 people attended a service inside the Pentagon that included Roman Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Protestant chaplains.


Wild Thing's comment........

Good! This is political/social/cultural jujitsu — using the opponents own moves, size, strength, against them.

I weep that our nation has become so enslaved to the Muslim demands, to the demands of THOSE who have members who would KILL US, that our own MILITARY would demand that a Christain minister be dis-invited to participate in an AMERICAN DAY OF PRAYER! Nothing Franklin said was a LIE! And worse....this man has a SON serving our nation right now!!!

I HATE THIS ADMINISTRATION. And I mean HATE! Anyone with a ounce of common sense and decency should abhor the actions of the absolute crazy people that make up this joke of an administration in DC.

Navy Seal Matthew McCabe Was Found Not Guilty

Praise God! U.S. Navy SEAL, Petty Officer 2nd Cl Matthew McCabe has been acquitted of charges he assaulted an Iraqi prisoner! Two other SEALs were acquitted of similar charges earlier.

Here is video of Fox News' Bret Baier announcing the acquittal, and then interviewing McCabe about the verdict! It took a military jury about 1 1/2 hours to come to the decision.

"I'm ridiculously happy right now," McCabe told Baier. McCabe and the other two SEALs had refused to accept a "reprimand," and instead were willing to face Court Martial in the interests of the truth.

God bless them each one for their service, and for the incredible integrity and honor they have displayed. They never should have had to face this, but they have revealed the highest character in how they have handled it!


Navy Seal Matthew McCabe was found not guilty


A Virginia military jury found a Navy SEAL not guilty Thursday on all charges he punched an Iraqi suspected in the 2004 killings of four U.S. contractors in Fallujah.

“I’m really happy right now,” Matthew McCabe, the Navy SEAL, told Fox News shortly after hearing the outcome of the court martial. “It’s an amazing feeling. I’m on cloud nine right now.”

McCabe, a special operations petty officer second class, called the proceedings “troubling at times,” adding “having your career on the line is not an easy thing to handle.

McCabe was the third and final Navy SEAL to be prosecuted in the case. He had faced charges of assault, making a false official statement and dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee. McCabe was accused of punching last year is Ahmed Hashim Abed, the suspected mastermind of the grisly killings six years ago.

After the court martial, the 24-year-old from Perrysburg, Ohio, thanked the public for its continued support.


Rep. Dan Burton Statement On Navy SEAL Matt McCabe Being Found Not Guilty

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN-05) issued the following statement after Navy SEAL Matt McCabe was found not guilty of all charges related to the alleged abuse of an al-Qaeda terrorist detainee:

"My heartfelt congratulations go to Petty Officer McCabe and his family. I know they have endured many stressful months in anticipation of this trial. With all three Navy SEALs now cleared of all charges in this case, I believe this sends a very positive signal to the men and women in uniform who are fighting for America around the world today.

"I join the many thousands of Americans who cheer for SEALs McCabe, Keefe, and Huertas tonight, and on behalf of the 35,000 who signed my petition for these three heroes, I thank them for their honorable service, and welcome them back to duty."

Obama Administration Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List BEFORE Attempted Attack

Obama Administration Removed Faisal Shahzad From Terror Surveillance List Before Attack …

Faisal Shahzad was removed from the national terrorist surveillance list before the Times Square attack.

Faisal Shahzad was removed from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.


Sources tell CBS News that would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad appeared on a Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list – Traveler Enforcement Compliance System (TECS) – between 1999 and 2008 because he brought approximately $80,000 cash or cash instruments into the United States.

The New York Times

The person who bought Faisal’s apartment back in 2004 was interviewed by federal investigators.

George LaMonica, a 35-year-old computer consultant, said he bought his two-bedroom condominium in Norwalk, Conn., from Mr. Shahzad for $261,000 in May 2004. A few weeks after he moved in, Mr. LaMonica said, investigators from the national Joint Terrorism Task Force [JTTF] interviewed him, asking for details of the transaction and for information about Mr. Shahzad. It struck Mr. LaMonica as unusual, but he said detectives told him they were simply “checking everything out.”

Barack Obama began shutting down Bush-era terrorist investigations last year including the investigation of Faisal Shahzad.

We all know what happened next.

Last week Faisal almost blew a hole in the middle of Times Square.

The only thing that saved the people of New York was Faisal’s incompetence.

UPDATE: Faisal Shahzad had contacts with several other terrorist leaders including the radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki, the Taliban Chief, and the Mumbai Massacre mastermind.


Shahzad also had a web of jihadist contacts that included big names tied to terror attacks in the U.S. and abroad, including the figure who has emerged as a central figure in many recent domestic terror attempts – radical American-born Muslim cleric Anwar Awlaki.
Besides Awlaki, sources say Shahzad was also linked to a key figure in the Pakistani Taliban, its Emir Beitullah Mehsud, who was killed in a drone missile strike in 2009. The Mehsuds had been family friends of Shahzad, who is the son of a former high-ranking Pakistani military officer.


Obama admits that he is a Muslim. Obama bowing before a Muslim king. Obama talking about his Muslim family. Obama quoting from the Koran. Obama defending Islam. Obama visiting a Mosque.

Senators Lieberman, Collins Threaten to Sue Obama White House For Withholding Info on Ft. Hood Shootings

Senators Threaten to Sue Obama White House For Withholding Info on Ft. Hood Shootings

Liberal Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and RINO Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) today announced they are willing to take the Obama White House to court over their refusal to release information on the November 2009 Fort Hood shootings.

The Hill

Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and ranking Republican Susan Collins (Maine) on Thursday said they are poised to press their subpoena fight with the Obama administration into court.

Lieberman and Collins, speaking separately, both said the Justice and Defense departments have been uncooperative with their efforts to obtain more information about the November 2009 shootings at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 people.

Both senators stopped short of saying they’ve made a final decision, but made it clear they are probably headed toward a court confrontation with administration lawyers based on doubt that the final round of negotiations would bring success.

“If they won’t respond, I think we have an obligation. It’s not easy to enforce a subpoena against the executive branch but I’m going to make the fight,” Lieberman said.
“If we yield to the executive branch’s argument that they can’t provide us these witnesses because there’s a criminal proceeding, we’re going to create a terrible precedent for future Congresses that will allow future administrations to just cite that. It makes no sense to me.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Good God. This is the *Commander in Chief* who will not cooperate in the investigation of the Jihad murder of thirteen American service people. We sure know what side Obama is on and it not the side for our troops nor America.

Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing American Flag Tees

Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing American Flag Tees

Freedom of expression or cultural disrespect on Cinco de Mayo?


On any other day at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Daniel Galli and his four friends would not even be noticed for wearing T-shirts with the American flag. But Cinco de Mayo is not any typical day especially on a campus with a large Mexican American student population.

Galli says he and his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break when the vice principal asked two of the boys to remove American flag bandannas that they wearing on their heads and for the others to turn their American flag T-shirts inside out. When they refused, the boys were ordered to go to the principal's office.

"They said we could wear it on any other day," Daniel Galli said, "but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today."

The boys said the administrators called their T-shirts "incendiary" that would lead to fights on campus.

"They said if we tried to go back to class with our shirts not taken off, they said it was defiance and we would get suspended," Dominic Maciel, Galli's friend, said.

The boys really had no choice, and went home to avoid suspension. They say they're angry they were not allowed to express their American pride. Their parents are just as upset, calling what happened to their children, "total nonsense."

"I think it's absolutely ridiculous," Julie Fagerstrom, Maciel's mom, said. "All they were doing was displaying their patriotic nature. They're expressing their individuality."

But to many Mexican-American students at Live Oak, this was a big deal. They say they were offended by the five boys and others for wearing American colors on a Mexican holiday.

"I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. "We don't deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July."

As for an apology, the boys and their families say, 'fat chance.'

"I'm not going to apologize. I did nothing wrong," Galli said. "I went along with my normal day. I might have worn an American flag, but I'm an American and I'm proud to be an American."

The five boys and their families met with a Morgan Hill Unified School District official Wednesday night. The district and the school do not see eye-to-eye on the incident and released the following statement:

The district does not concur with the Live Oak High School administration's interpretation of either board or district policy related to these actions.

The boys will not be suspended and were allowed to return to school Thursday. We spotted one of them when he got to campus -- and, yes, he was sporting an American flag T-shirt.


Thanks for the graphic with Obama.


Wild Thing's comment........

How dare they kick the kids out of school for wearing the American Flag..what in the HELL is wrong with these idiots!!!!

They act like this is really Mexico and we are the occupiers.

They should come back wearing a Remember the Alamo t-shirt.

One more thing, this holiday is NOT celebrated in Mexico, and not even in in Puebla. It is NOT Mexican Independence Day, which is Sept. 16. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the defeat of the French in the city of Puebla, Mexico. It is a minor event to most of Mexico as they don’t celebrate it. It seems a little strange, because people in Mexico — or at least, people in Mexico City — don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo. No one has the day off.

Jim Cramer Talking Through Violent Dow Jones Swing; Sources Say Caused by "Trader Error"

Here is amazing video from CNBC this afternoon of stock guru Jim Cramer on air with Erin Burnett and others as they watched the Dow drop to nearly 1,000 points down and then rebound dramatically to a drop of less than 400 points.

When the video begins, it shows Cramer talking about Proctor & Gamble being down to $47.01, off over $15 for the day. Cramer said PG was worth more than that, and urged people to buy it at that price. By the time the video ends, it had rebounded to over $60 a share, and was only off a little more than $1 for the day.

Obama Gives Up America's Security Secrets! ~ This Is TREASON!

EDITORIAL: Obama's nuclear spill

Why would the O Force give up America's security secrets?

The Washington Times

The Obama administration has revealed - for the first time ever - the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal in detail. This information was a closely guarded secret for more than 60 years. By unloading such sensitive information, President Obama is responsible for deliberately exposing a chink in America's defensive armor. The Land of the Free is less secure for it.

On orders from the White House, the Pentagon on Monday released the exact number of nuclear warheads as the 189-nation nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference got under way in New York. The U.S. nuclear stockpile now stands at 5,113 warheads, down from a high of 31,255 in 1967.

Never before has the United States allowed either friend or foe access to such precise information about our nuclear assets - and for good reason. A healthy dread of these awesome weapons has deterred aggression against the American homeland and kept the nation safe.

Disarmament officials and purported peace activists claim the frank U.S. disclosure will elicit similar openness on the part of other nuclear powers, leading them to follow suit. We're not so sure that neighborhood bullies will decide that giving away state secrets is the cool thing to do on the nuclear playground. While revealing the size of the stockpile might earn some diplomatic plaudits for an approval-seeking Mr. Obama, surrendering such information constitutes shortsighted defense policy.

Contrary to Team Obama's pipe dream of a nuclear-free world, the unfolding international trend is toward uncontrollable nuclear proliferation, not reduction - especially in the Third World. It's hardly breaking news that nations that wish us ill profess platitudes of peace while quietly developing their own nuclear capabilities. Foremost among them is the Islamic Republic of Iran, whose president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on Monday called on treaty signatories to punish nations that threaten other countries with nuclear weapons. This was a thinly veiled snipe at the United States.

The Iranian despot has perfected his role as puppet master on the world stage. Relentless denunciations of America's nuclear posture played into the U.S. decision to release its long-guarded nuclear secrets as American treaty negotiators sought to pre-empt Iran's demand that existing nuclear nations provide more accountability for their nuclear materials. Mr. Ahmadinejad has pulled Mr. Obama's strings, goading the United States along the path of disarmament, all the while moving his Islamic regime inexorably toward possession of the mullahs' own nuclear weapons. In the game of power politics, Mr. Obama is clearly out of his depth.

This is not a minor issue. As former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John R. Bolton has warned in this paper, "If Washington will not continue to hold the nuclear umbrella that has provided strategic stability for so long, other countries will begin making divergent decisions about how to protect themselves, including, for some, the possibility of seeking their own nuclear weapons."

In an ideal world, a nuclear umbrella wouldn't be necessary, but ours is hardly an ideal world. Nature abhors a vacuum, and as America surrenders its mantle as the world's foremost superpower, other nations will rush forward to pick it up. Providing America's adversaries with precise information about our military capabilities only assists their strategy against us. If he had any useful experience, Mr. Obama would know that - assuming he's not weakening America on purpose.


Wild Thing's comment........

If this is not Treason I don’t know what is. It is intentional weakening of the US by a President who hates America and seeks to bring it down.

Tell me, how does this square with “provide for the common defense” and “preserve, protect and defend" ??!!

According to Obama and his Administration, it's fine to give away long held classified strategic National Security Secrets, but God Forbid, if you ask to see Obama’s long form birth certificate you are deemed to be a racist or a nut.

The free people are the true endangered specie and hated last people of this planet.

Obama Did This Last Year Now NATO Commanders Are Pushing For a New “Courageous Restraint” Award

NATO Commanders are pushing for a new “courageous restraint” award to recognize and celebrate the troops who exhibit extraordinary courage and self-control by not using their weapons even when their lives are at risk.


NATO commanders are weighing a new way to reduce civilian casualties in Afghanistan: recognizing soldiers for “courageous restraint” if they avoid using force that could endanger innocent lives.

The concept comes as the coalition continues to struggle with the problem of civilian casualties despite repeated warnings from the top NATO commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, that the war effort hinges on the ability to protect the population and win support away from the Taliban.

Those who back the idea hope it will provide soldiers with another incentive to think twice before calling in an airstrike or firing at an approaching vehicle if civilians could be at risk.

Most military awards in the past have been given for things like soldiers taking out a machine gun nest or saving their buddies in a firefight, said Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Hall, the senior NATO enlisted man in Afghanistan.
“We are now considering how we look at awards differently,” he said.

British Maj. Gen. Nick Carter, the NATO commander of troops in southern Afghanistan, proposed the idea of awarding soldiers for “courageous restraint” during a visit by Hall to Kandahar Airfield in mid April. McChrystal is now reviewing the proposal to determine how it could be implemented, Hall said.

…”There should be an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the troops who exhibit extraordinary courage and self-control by not using their weapons, but instead taking personal risk to de-escalate tense and potentially disastrous situations,” the statement said.

NATO commanders are not planning to create a new medal or military decoration for "courageous restraint," but instead are looking at ways of using existing awards to recognize soldiers who go to great lengths to avoid civilian casualties, Hall said.

But some U.S. Army soldiers here at Forward Operating Base Ramrod in Kandahar province are skeptical that the chance of winning an award is going to change the way troops make decisions on the battlefield.

"Not a single one of these guys does it for the medals," said Capt. Edward Graham, referring to the soldiers in his company.

Graham, whose company is part of the 4th Battalion, 23rd Infantry Regiment, said soldiers are constantly forced to weigh the duty they have to protect their colleagues against the goal of avoiding civilian casualties.


Wild Thing's comment........

I cannot handle this crap. This is just another liberal way of saying “we hope your troops die” while claiming to be about peace. THIS IS WAR YOU MORONS. Getting along is for PEACE TIME. OMG where did America go? I want her back!! GOD please bless our soldiers and protect them.

Actually this has been in place foe our troops since last spring ...FROM Obama! Along with if they capture a terrorist, they have to read them their Miranda Rights.

Obama's R.O.E. 's have resulted in a doubling, per month, of losses for our troops.

Here's a grim example: Even when they were pinned down and being killed - and assured command there were no civilians (and what if there had been, if the shooters were in the midst of them - I don't know what's happened to the original video with the actual voice of the radio man desperately trying to get air cover - that was refused - and 4 died - there’a video here - but not the original one - more of the administrating demanding a scrub “for security reason” - but the story is here - and it it NOT the only one! Our troops hands are tied and they are little bu Judas goats now.

U.S. Marines Boot Recruits with Confederate Tattoos

U.S.Marines hoists Confederate flag during WW11


VIetnam war heroes hoist Confederate flag


U.S. Marines boot recruits with Confederate tattoos

You won't believe what military thinks of historic Southern symbol


A widely regarded Southern symbol of pride and states' rights is standing in the way of would-be Marines in their quest to serve their country – a Confederate battle flag.

Straight out of high school, one 18-year-old Tennessee man was determined to serve his country as a Marine. His friend said he passed the pre-enlistment tests and physical exams and looked forward with excitement to the day he would ship out to boot camp.

But there would be no shouting drill instructors, no rigorous physical training and no action-packed stories for the aspiring Marine to share with his family.

Shortly before he was scheduled to leave Nashville for boot camp, the Marine Corps rejected him.

Now, the young man, who wishes to remain unnamed and declined to be interviewed, has chosen to return to school and is no longer an aspiring Marine.

"I think he just wants to let it go," said former Marine 1st Lt. Gene Andrews, a friend of the man and patriotic Southerner who served in Vietnam from 1968 through 1971. Andrews is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a group of male descendents of Confederate soldiers. He counseled the young man when he decided to become a Marine.
"He had been talking to me, and he was all fired up about joining," he told WND. "He asked my opinion of it, and I just tried to tell him the truth, good points and bad points."

When the young recruit didn't go to boot camp, Andrews learned of his rejection based on his tattoo of the Confederate battle flag on his shoulder.

'Right now, it's a flat-out denial'

Current Marine Corps tattoo policy states, "Tattoos/brands that are sexist (express nudity), racist, eccentric or offensive in nature, express an association with conduct or substances prohibited by the Marine Corps drug policy and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, to include tattoos associated with illegal drugs, drug usage or paraphernalia, are prohibited. Tattoos/brands that depict vulgar or anti-American content, bring possible discredit to the Marine Corps, or associate the applicant/Marine with any extremist group or organization are prohibited."

WND contacted the Tennessee recruiting station, and a Marine sergeant explained, "The policy is if a tattoo can be construed by anyone as being gang-related or racially biased, then we can't accept them."

While some extremist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nations have reportedly embraced the Confederate flag in the past, the KKK has also adopted the U.S. flag and Christian crosses as symbols. However, many Southerners do not consider the flag an expression of racism or indicator of membership in extremist groups. They regard the Confederate flag as a symbol of state sovereignty and an honorable tribute to the men who fought and died to protect their homeland from invasion by the federalist North.

Asked whether an exception might be made for a Marine recruit who could provide a full explanation on the meaning of his tattoo as an expression of Southern pride, the recruiter explained, "At this point in time, no. If it can be construed by anyone as being racially biased, then right now it's a flat-out denial."

He acknowledged that the tattoo is quite popular in the South and that recruitment has been impacted by the ban on Confederate-flag tattoos, but he explained that the policy has been set by Headquarters Marine Corps.

Headquarters Marine Corps has not responded to WND's requests for clarification of the policy.

However, the U.S. Marine Corps "Guidebook for Tattoo Screening, Volume VII," a manual that outlines procedures for enlisted recruiting and officer procurement operations, explains, "Users of this guidebook should keep in mind, however, that few symbols ever just represent one idea or are used exclusively by one group. For example, the confederate flag is a symbol that is frequently used by white supremacists but which also has been used by people and groups that are not racist. To some it may signify pride in one's heritage, but to others it suggests slavery or white supremacy."

'We've seen this before'

Other service members and recruits have dealt with similar issues concerning Confederate flag tattoos and military policy.

The Southern Legal Resource Center, or SLRC, is a nonprofit legal foundation that has handled a number of legal cases involving the Confederate battle flag.

"We've seen this before," SLRC Chief Trial Counsel Kirk Lyons told WND. "This is not a unique situation. We have had instances where people have called who were hassled by Marine military police for having a small Confederate battle flag sticker on their vehicle. We had a Navy recruit who was turned away for having a Confederate battle flag tattoo on his forearm. There was one more incident a couple of years ago where another Marine recruit was refused enlistment because of a battle flag tattoo."

Lyons said the case of the Marine with a Confederate flag bumper sticker was resolved without legal action because the base commander decided to leave it alone. However, he said most enlistees and recruits don't pursue legal action or complaints, so the policy is never challenged.

"If a family is not willing to make an issue of it and push it, there's really nothing we can do because we have to have standing," he explained.

On the other hand, enlistees often cooperate so their careers don't suffer, Lyons said.

"They've got to keep their mouths shut because they're very career-oriented," he said. "You either get with the program, or you're going to destroy your career. The military is going to fight it tooth and nail. In a lot of cases like this, there's nobody to support these guys. They're on their own."
He added, "Somebody's got to stand up and say, 'I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore.' If people surrender their rights and just go on, there's not much we can do."

'This is an insult to us'

As for Andrews, he walked into the local Marine recruiting station in Madison, Tenn., that had turned the recruit away. He met a staff sergeant and informed him of his family's defense of Tennessee during the Civil War and his own service in Vietnam.

"I had thought about it, and the more I thought about it, the more I felt like this is just not right," he said. "I thought, if we just sit here, we're going to be slapped around and stepped on forever."

In a recent commentary posted on numerous blogs, Andrews recounted his experience:

"I informed the young sergeant that my family had defended the state of Tennessee (also his home state) against a sadistic invasion under that flag and to call our sacred flag of honor a 'hate symbol' was an insult to all southerners, but especially to those southerners who had risked or even given their lives in service to the Marine Corps. Southerners had served at Belleau Woods, at Tarawa and Iwo Jima, at Inchon and the Chosin Reservoir, and at Khe Sanh and Hue City, but now we are no longer wanted in the politically correct, don't-offend-any-minorities military?"

The sergeant politely explained that the policy was handed down by headquarters.

Andrews continued, "I asked the sergeant if he had taken out the trash yet. He replied that he hadn't.

"I then said, 'Please add these to the day's garbage,' and returned my lieutenant's bars, my gold and silver Marine Corps emblem from my dress blues, my shooting badges and my Vietnam ribbons.

"I, like many of you, have always been told, 'Once a Marine, always a Marine,' and 'There are no ex-Marines, only former Marines,' but for me that is no longer true."

Andrews told WND he was born in the South, raised in the South and will always be a Southerner.

"This is an insult to us," he said. "We've laid our lives on the line in the Marine Corps since there was a Marine Corps. We fought in every campaign that the Marine Corps has been involved in. When I was in Vietnam, there were Confederate flags at every base, every fire-support base over there. Nobody said anything about it. There were state flags, Confederate flags, and it was no big deal."

Andrews said he is not angry. Rather, he is disappointed in the Marine Corps.

"I thought if it had been a bunch of political hacks or a school board or a local government or some municipality that was pretty spineless anyway, I really wouldn't have been surprised," he said. "That happens all the time. But I felt that the Marine Corps had a little more backbone and a little more character than that."

Asked what he would say to people who believe the Confederate flag represents racism and slavery, he responded, "I'd say they don't know much about history. Slavery existed under the United States flag much longer than it ever did under the Confederate flag."

He added, "It's pitiful to bring up historical topics to some of our young people today. They just stare at you like you're from outer space. If you're going to be led around by the nose in this country by the government, if you can't figure out what's true and what's not and what kind of propaganda they're giving you, that's a sad situation."

Confederate flag: Symbol of 'terrorism' or independence?

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or NAACP, recently fought to ban the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse. NAACP leaders have said the Confederate flag "supports the evils of slavery" and "represents terrorism."

However, in his 1999 commentary, columnist Walter Williams argued, "It must be ignorance, an ignorance I once shared. The NAACP crowd sees the Confederate battle flag as a flag of slavery. If that's so, the United States flag is even more so. Slavery thrived under the United States flag from 1776 to 1865, while under the Confederate flag a mere four years."

He explained, "The birth of both flags had little or nothing to do with slavery. Both flags saw their birth in a violent and proud struggle for independence and self-governance."

Williams noted that the flag naturally symbolizes resentment for those individuals who see the War for Southern Independence solely or chiefly as a struggle for slavery.

"The idea that President Abraham Lincoln waged war against the South to abolish slavery is fiction created by the victors," he explained. "Here's an oft-repeated sentiment by President Lincoln: 'I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.' Slavery simply emerged as a moral front for northern aggression."

Williams explained that significant factors that led to the war included states' rights and tariffs Congress enacted to protect Northern manufacturing interests. He also cited professor Edward Smith, director of American studies at American University, who has calculated that between 60,000 and 93,000 blacks served the Confederacy.

"These black Confederate soldiers no more fought to preserve slavery than their successors fought in WWI and WWII to preserve Jim Crow and segregation," Williams wrote. "They fought because their homeland was attacked and fought in the hope that the future would be better and they'd be rewarded for their patriotism."

Williams then suggested the NAACP make an effort to memorialize and honor black Confederate soldiers.

Meanwhile, a May 9, 2000, survey by Gallup Poll News Service posed this question to Americans, "Do you, yourself, see the Confederate flag more as a symbol of Southern pride, or more as a symbol of racism?"

A full 59 percent of all respondents said they believe it is a symbol of Southern pride, while only 28 percent saw it as a symbol of racism.

"It's kind of a hot topic for us right now," the Tennessee Marine recruiter said of the Marine Corps policy on Confederate flag tattoos. "Personally, I don't have any problems with it. I have friends, both white and black, who don't have any problems with it. But there are also those out there who do see it as being racially biased."


Wild Thing's comment........

I am seeing this "if anyone can be offended" or "if someone says he or she might be un-comfortable" crap more and more. It takes away a persons right to explain him or herself and lets others ruin him or her. All because someone else can , at a whim, say "oh... i am offended or frightened" instead of having a dialogue between responsible individuals. These policies are all anti-individual.

This is a historic Flag and is a part of the history of our country.

A little history for an example:

The USS Columbia (CL-56) flew a Confederate Navy Ensign as a battle flag throughout combat in the South Pacific in World War II. This was done in honor of Columbia, the ship's namesake and the capital city of South Carolina, the first state to secede from the Union. Some soldiers carried Confederate flags into battle. After the Battle of Okinawa a Confederate flag was raised over Shuri Castle by a Marine from the self-styled "Rebel Company" (Company A of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines).

Prosecution Rests in Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe’s Court Martial

Prosecution Rests in Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe’s Court Martial

FOX News


The prosecution has rested its case in the military trial of 24 year old Matthew McCabe, the Navy SEAL accused of assaulting a suspected terrorist he had helped capture last September in Iraq. Ahmed Hashim Abed, accused of killing four American contractors in Fallujah six years ago, claims he was beaten while in the custody of McCabe and two other Navy SEALs.

Earlier, as prosecutors called their witnesses, Navy Petty Officer Third Class Kevin Demartino, who is not a SEAL, testified that he saw McCabe deliver a "right punch to the chest" of his detainee.

Demartino was in charge of the detention facility where the disputed incident occurred, and was responsible for the prisoner's safety. He testified that after he witnessed the assault, three Navy SEALs left the detainee's cell. Demartino says Abed had fallen from his chair to the floor and there was blood coming from under the prisoner's hood.

A Navy commander who was in charge of all American forces in Fallujah at the time, also testified today. He says he noticed Abed's bloodied mouth the next morning and asked Demartino what had happened, but didn't get an answer.

Asked on cross examination why he said nothing at first about the alleged assault, Demartino told the court "I had a choice of being in good graces with the Navy SEALs or being in good graces with God." Demartino admits he's guilty of dereliction of duty for not immediately reporting what he saw.

Abed is the alleged mastermind of the grisly attack on four Blackwater contractors who were ambushed and killed in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004. Their bodies were burned and dragged through the streets as crowds cheered. Two of the bodies were hanged from a bridge over the Euphrates River.

This is the second day of testimony in the case of McCabe, the Navy SEAL from Perrysberg, Ohio. A seven member jury is hearing the case, presided over by a Judge Advocate General, Captain Moira Modelewski. Two other SEALs faced trial in Baghdad and were found not guilty last month. Demartino gave the same testimony in those earlier trials.

Abed's taped testimony was heard in open court Tuesday. He said he was handcuffed and blindfolded and placed on a chair in the holding cell. He claims he was hit on the back and shoulders and knocked to the floor. He says he was kicked in the stomach and sworn at while he was down. But he says he could only see one person's feet and legs from under his hood and cannot identify his assailant.

The defense claims Al Qaeda detainees are trained to claim abuse and that Abed caused his own lip to bleed.

Abed testified in person during the previous two trials, but the defense in this case declined the opportunity to confront the accuser in court. If McCabe's lawyers had wanted Abed to testify in person, the trial would have been held in Iraq, where Abed remains a prisoner of the Iraqi government.

In his testimony Wednesday, Petty Officer Demartino said two of the Navy SEALs in the holding cell at the time of the alleged assault basically told him not to worry about any injuries to Abed. On the witness stand, Demartino says he was told by Pettty Officer 2nd Class Jonathan Keefe, "Don't feel bad for this guy." And, according to Demartino, Petty Officer 1st Class Julio Huertas said, "He's killed Americans." Keefe and Huertas are the two SEALs earlier acquitted in this case.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I hope that Navy Petty Officer Third Class Kevin Demartino, who is not a Navy Seal, enjoys the wrath and scorn of his peers everyday for the rest of his career in the Navy. The PO is an informer and a Judas. Maybe he will leave the service and be on leftist TV and other groups I bet, because they would be the only ones to accept him, unless he becomes a high official in the Obama administration.

Mike Pence On Gulf Oil Rig Disaster

There would be those in this country who would exploit this ongoing disaster to deny the American people more access to American oil"

Pence: "The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is an ongoing tragedy, and the American people deserve action to protect our Gulf and they deserve answers.

"The American people deserve to know what happened on April 20th, and Congress should investigate it thoroughly."The American people deserve to know why the administration was slow to respond, why necessary equipment was not immediately on hand in the area and why the president did not fully deploy cabinet-level federal officials until he spoke at the White House on April 28th.
"Lastly, the American people deserve answers for a pathway toward energy independence. There would be those in this country who would exploit this ongoing disaster to deny the American people more access to American oil that but the American people know better.
"The pathway toward energy independence is environmentally responsible expansion of domestic drilling for oil and natural gas. It's more wind and solar and nuclear and more conservation.
"Republicans are determined to get the American people the answers about what happened on April 20th, about the slow federal response and to give the American people answers and a pathway toward energy independence that uses ‘all of the above.

" The Manchurian President" by Aaron Klein

The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists

The Obama-Ayers meeting: What you haven't been told

Most exhaustive investigation ever into prez's background, radical ties


A new book released today uncovers for the first time where and how President Obama first met Weather Underground terrorist-group founder William Ayers – and it is much earlier than previously believed.

The book reveals the two were brought together by a student of radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, whose name, it has emerged, was obscured in Obama's autobiography "Dreams from My Father."

The new book, "The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and other Anti-American Extremists," charges Obama has deep ties to an anti-American extremist nexus that has been instrumental not only in building his political career but in crafting current White House policy.

The book exposes an extremist coalition of communists, socialists and other radicals working both inside and outside the administration to draft and advance current White House policy goals.

With more than 800 citations, the brand new, autographed title from WND senior reporter and WABC Radio host Aaron Klein bills itself as the most exhaustive investigation ever performed into Obama's political background and radical ties. Klein's co-author is historian and researcher Brenda J. Elliott.

Of all Obama's radical associates from the past, few received more attention or were as shocking as his connection to Ayers.

Until now, it has been known Obama launched his political career at a 1995 fundraiser in Ayers' Chicago apartment and that the two served alongside each other from 1995 to 2000 on a hundred-million-dollar education foundation, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

Ayers was founder of the CAC; Obama was hired as the group's first chairman. CAC documents dug up during the 2008 presidential campaign revealed Ayers was in a working group of five who assembled the initial board of the CAC, which hired Obama. The documents also revealed Obama and Ayers had a working relationship at the CAC.

Obama would later cite his CAC position as evidence of his qualification for public office.

However, those probing Obama were left to speculate exactly how Ayers was so familiar with him that he hired the future politician for the CAC and hosted the 1995 fundraiser.

"Manchurian President"authors Klein and Elliott found that Obama worked directly with Ayers in 1988 and that the two were brought together by a radical Alinsky acolyte who was trained by Alinsky himself.

The Weathermen founder earlier resurfaced after going underground amid multiple criminal charges related to his extremist activities. The charges were dropped due to prosecutorial misconduct.

In 1988, in response to a Chicago summit that documented the poor quality of education in the city, Chicago United, a group founded by Ayers' father, the late Thomas Ayers, formed a community advocacy coalition called the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, or ABC. Thomas Ayers was the chairman and CEO of Commonwealth Edison.

When he created his ABCs Coalition in June 1988, Thomas Ayers included Obama in the coalition, Klein and Elliott found. Obama at the time was director and lead organizer of the Developing Communities Project, or DCP, an institutionally based community organization on Chicago's Far South Side. Obama's first job in Chicago was his DCP position.

The contact for the ABCs Coalition, on which Obama served, was none other than William Ayers himself, who at the time was at the University of Illinois at Chicago

Klein and Elliott found documentation, cited in "Manchurian," that Ayers started attending the ABCs Coalition's monthly meetings, held over breakfasts of eggs, sausages, rolls, fruit, and coffee in a conference room on the 57th floor of Chicago's First National Bank downtown headquarters.

Obama disguised Alinsky radical?

Obama, meanwhile, took his DCP job in 1985. In "Dreams from My Father," Obama relates his first job in Chicago as a community organizer and claims the name of his boss at DCP was "Marty Kaufman."

Kaufman, however, doesn't exist. The DCP chief at the time was actually Marty Kellman, who was trained by Alinsky himself, "The Manchurian President" documents.

Additionally, Klein and Elliott document the DCP, with Obama as director, received two grants. One grant was for $40,000 in 1985 and another for $33,000 in 1986 from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a group that promoted Alinsky-style organizations, the book says.

Write Klein and Elliott: "There can be no doubt, then, that Obama and Ayers were well-acquainted by 1988, brought together through an acolyte of Alinsky.
"Perhaps this period serves as the missing link, providing background to understand how Ayers was so comfortable with Obama's capabilities that he later would hire the future politician to head the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, or CAC, a job Obama would in turn claim had qualified him to run for public office."

Book uncovers radical nexus

Along with a chapter on Ayers, "The Manchurian President" includes an extensive investigation into Obama's own background. The work uncovers, among many other things, Obama's early years, including his previously overlooked early childhood ties to a radical, far-left church connected to Ayers' ideology.

"The Manchurian President"also unmasks, exclusively, important aspects of Obama's carefully covered-up college years, with new details of his student career at Occidental College and later at Columbia University.

Obama's associations with the Nation of Islam, Black Liberation Theology and black political extremists are also revealed, with extensive new information on the subjects.

Also detailed are Obama's deep ties to ACORN, which are much more extensive than previously documented elsewhere. The book crucially describes how a socialist-led, ACORN-affiliated union helped facilitate Obama's political career and now exerts major influence in the White House.

"The Manchurian President" contains potentially explosive information not only about President Obama but also concerning other officials in the White House, including top czars and senior advisers Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod.
"The Manchurian President" also exposes how Obama's health-care policy, masked by moderate populist rhetoric, was pushed along and partially crafted by extremists, some of whom reveal in their own words that their principal aim is to achieve corporate socialist goals and a vast increase in government powers.
"I believe this work is crucial to Americans from across the political spectrum," says Klein, "including mainstream Democrats who should be alarmed that their party has been hijacked by an extreme-left fringe bent on permanently changing the party to fit its radical agenda.
"Indeed, this book will document, with new information, Obama's own involvement with a socialist party whose explicit goal was to infiltrate and eventually take over the Democratic Party and mold it into a socialist organization," Klein claims.

Klein began investigating Obama during the 2008 presidential campaign and broke major national stories. He first exposed the politician's association with Ayers in a widely circulated WND article.

The story prompted the Nation magazine to lament, via the CBS News website, that "mainstream reporters now call the Obama campaign to ask about Klein's articles."

It was in a WABC Radio interview with Klein that Ahmed Yousef, chief political adviser to Hamas, "endorsed" Obama for president, generating world headlines and sparking controversy. Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain and Obama repeatedly traded public barbs over Hamas' positive comments.

Aaron Klein was among the first reporters to expose that Obama's "green jobs" czar, Van Jones, founded a communist organization and called for "resistance" against the U.S. government. The theme was picked up and expanded upon by the Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck, leading to Jones' resignation last September.

Co-author Brenda J. Elliott is a historian, author and investigative researcher known for her blogging during the 2008 presidential election about Ayers, Tony Rezko and other controversial figures linked to Obama. Since 1988, Elliott has been responsible for a number of historical projects, has won an award by Project Censored for her work and has been named "One of the Intriguing People" by Central Florida magazine.

The introduction to "The Manchurian President" relates: "Barack Obama is backed by and deeply tied to an anti-American fringe nexus that, as this book will show, was instrumental not only in mentoring Obama and helping him to build his political career, but essentially in overthrowing the moderate wing of the Democratic Party and in securing and powerfully influencing Obama's presidency.

"As will be seen, these radical associates not only continue to influence Obama and White House strategy, but some are directly involved in creating the very policies intended to undermine or radically transform the United States of America."

Book Description

Tens of millions of Americans sense there is something very wrong with the president of the United States, but they don't know exactly what. "The Manchurian President" answers that question. In writing this exhaustively researched book—which is thoroughly documented with over 800 endnotes—Aaron Klein, with Brenda J. Elliot, definitively exposes just how dangerous Barack Obama really is as America's president and commander in chief. Among the book's chilling findings:

* Obama's deep ties to an anti-American fringe nexus instrumental in building his political career, some members of which are helping draft White House policy
* Obama's extensive connections to ACORN and its union affiliate, including much new information not previously documented elsewhere
* Extremists exposed in the White House, including top czars and communist-linked Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod
* Obama's healthcare policy pushed and crafted by extremists
* Obama’s deep association with the Nation of Islam
* Obama's ties to terrorist Bill Ayers much more extensive than ever previously disclosed

“I believe [The Manchurian President] is crucial to Americans from across the political spectrum, including mainstream Democrats who should be alarmed that their party has been hijacked by an extreme-left fringe bent on permanently changing the party to fit its radical agenda. Indeed, this book will document, with new information, Obama’s own involvement with a socialist party whose explicit goal was to infiltrate and eventually take over the Democratic Party and mold it into a socialist organization.”—Aaron Klein


The Real Barack Obama website has an interview with Elliott. Here is an excerpt

Pundita: Was there a specific alliance, or set of alliances, in Obama’s personal or political life that caused you to revise your initial view of him? If I recall your initial view was that he was a fairly typical corrupt Chicago Machine politician.

Elliott: We discovered a lot of socialists of many stripes, including Marxists and Maoists. Although never claiming to be one of them, Obama is certainly a fellow traveler in that he was, and still is, constantly surrounded by them, and has been more than willing to share political space and ideology with them.

For decades Obama has surrounded himself with a large number of radicals of many stripes. It does truly boggle the mind.

As Marxist professor Manning Marable wrote in the December 2008 ‘Socialist Review,’ a lot of people working with Obama have a background in Marxism and socialism and communism. Obama, Marable says, is a “progressive liberal.” However, he writes, Obama “understands what socialism is.”

Republicans Sound Alarm on Obama's Plan to Seize 401(k)s

Human Events

The Obama Administration is making plans to take over the nation’s 401(k)s in order to bail out their union backers and their bankrupted pension plans.

In February, the White House released its “Annual Report on the Middle Class” containing new regulations favored by Big Labor including a bailout of critically underfunded union pension plans through “retirement security” options.

The radical solution most favored by Big Labor is the seizure of private 401(k) plans for government disbursement — which lets them off the hook for their collapsing retirement scheme. And, of course, the Obama administration is eager to accommodate their buddies.

Vice President Joe Biden floated the idea, called “Guaranteed Retirement Accounts” (GRAs), in the February “Middle Class” report.

In conjunction with the report’s release, the Obama administration jointly issued through the Departments of Labor and Treasury a “Request for Information” regarding the “annuitization” of 401(k) plans through “Lifetime Income Options” in the form of a notice to the public of proposed issuance of rules and regulations. (pdf)


Republican Leader John Boehner released this statement today in response to this recent move by democrats:

Keep Bureaucrats’ Hands off Americans’ 401(k)s

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and members of the House GOP Savings Solutions Group sent a letter to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warning the Obama Administration that the government should keep its hands off of the retirement savings of Americans, and should reject proposals that would dismantle or nationalize the private 401(k) system in favor of a government-run retirement security regime. Several Administration officials, including the Vice President, have voiced support for efforts to create so-called “Guaranteed Retirement Accounts” or impose new government mandates which would undermine 401(k) retirement savings plans and jeopardize employers’ willingness to continue offering them to their workers. Boehner issued the following statement:

“The American people are asking ‘where are the jobs?’ They aren’t asking for job-killing policies that jeopardize their retirement savings. Unfortunately, Washington Democrats are pursuing policies that make it more difficult to offer 401(k) savings plans to their workers, and some are even advocating replacing them with government-run accounts and ending 401(k)s altogether. That’s unacceptable and not the solution Americans need at a time when they are still rebuilding their retirement, college, and personal savings.
“Republicans are committed to offering better solutions, and the proposal we have offered – the Savings Recovery Act – will help restore Americans’ savings and ensure that Washington does not stand in the way of families’ ability to save more. It’s time for Democrats to stop advocating policies that will destroy Americans’ savings and work with Republicans on better solutions to help rebuild them.”

Several GOP House members signed on to a letter delivered to labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner expressing their concerns today.

Wild Thing's comment........

I don't have a 401 K, but this should tick off every American to see this GREED from Obama.

Wanna bet Obama voters scream the loudest when this takes place? or are they just swiping the 401k of republicans?

We are a free people, and have been pushed, prodded and abused. This is tyranny.

Obama has devastated everything he's touched (by design). We are living in tyranny now and the only thing that hasn't happened is the brutalization of the citizenry (which is coming soon imo)

Obama then enemy Foreign and Domestic, Obama has devastated everything he's touched (by design )We are living in tyranny delivered to us by Obama.

Thank God for John Boehner leading the way on this and his letter. They , WE, need for ALL the Republicans in power to sign it.

Leftist Illegal Immigrant Supporter Sends White Powder to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer

Race-Hustlers Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton Call for Selig to Pull All-Star Game Out of Arizona

Never mind the fact that a vast majority (59%) of Americans support Arizona… Never mind that 70% of Arizona voters who live with the problem support the bill… Never mind that the immigrant ID law has been on the books for 70 years… Never mind that the media has completely misrepresented the legislation

Daily Pitch

This is the letter sent today to Selig:

Dear Bud,

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition appeals to Major League Baseball to take a public stand against the recently passed Arizona immigration law. We also urge you to move the scheduled 2011 all-star game from Diamondback Stadium in Arizona unless this law is repealed.

America's democracy is based on the values of freedom and equality--a level playing field for all of its people. The passage of the Arizona immigration law is an affront to these principles, representing the most divisive and polarizing approach to immigration reform. It is morally reprehensible and will be challenged as unconstitutional in the courts. This law – and the social "movement" that has inspired it – will have a negative impact on all of America's people.

Major League Baseball is truly an international sport. Well over 25% of MLB players are of Latino descent, and players, coaches, managers, and staff come from many countries other than the United States. From Jackie Robinson's breakthrough moment in 1947 to today, they make major league baseball one of the world's most popular sports. They come here legally, documented, with the single goal of showcasing their skills and contributing to the growth and success of Major League Baseball. They should not be subjected to humiliating and illegal harassment.

The Arizona law will have a devastating impact on the integrity and public image of Major League Baseball. Imagine if players or their families are stopped and interrogated by law enforcement – not just during all-star week, but during any games – spring training (where half of the teams locate in Arizona) and regular season – played in Arizona. That would truly be a dark day for Major League Baseball. We urge MLB to take all necessary measures to protect the rights and interests of your players, coaches, staff and their families.

Sincerely,Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.
President and Founder/Rainbow PUSH Coalition


Suspicious white powder was sent to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer today. The FBI was called in:

The FBI will assist in the investigation of a suspicious envelope addressed to Gov. Jan Brewer that an employee at the Capitol opened Tuesday, sending the Executive Tower into one-hour lockdown after a white powder spilled from the envelope onto a computer.

Phoenix Fire Department hazardous materials experts spent less than one hour in the building. No injuries or complaints of illness were reported and the tower was reopened around 11:20 a.m.


Wild Thing's comment........

Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, Obama and his ilk are probably thrilled. This is from THEIR handiwork and threats about those of us and Gov Brewer that want our laws to be followed.

Rep. Peter King Says There Was 'Criminal Negligence' With The Obama Administration Re: Arrest Of Faisal Shahzad

Rep. Peter King, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, appears on O'Reilly to discuss the arrest of Faisal Shahzad for the Times Square car bomb

Bill O'Reilly talks with Rep. Peter King and Michael Scheuer about the arrest of Faisal Shahzad.

Rep. Peter King expressed concern over the level of information that the media had before the arrest of Shahzad, King said, "I've never seen a situation on such a high priority investigation where so much information, so much damaging information, was leaked by the administration." King said that it was 'criminal negligence' to release so much information before they had detained Shahzad, he said he is going to ask the FBI to investigate who leaked the information, "Because you could have put lives at risk here."

Michael Scheuer said that even though this attack was 'amateurish,' it was "successful in everything except it didn't explode, and so they'll come back again if they're not already in the country." Scheuer also commented on the recent video from the Taliban threatening American cities, he said, "It certainly looks increasingly like it's going to be a credible threat from them...I don't think it's conclusive yet, but I think it increasingly looks like the threat was credible"


Wild Thing's comment........

Peter King has a good point I am glad he is speakin out about this. It does seem like the Obama administration purposely leaked information to warn the suspect to get away. They wanted him to escape. King sees right through this motley assemblage of America-haters.

Bloomberg and Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier

Bloomberg thinks Times Square bomber may have not liked health care

Here's the video of Bloomberg telling Katie Couric that the bomber was an angry Tea Partier upset with Obamacare. Small problem for the mayor. The bomber is a Muslim of Pakistani descent and naturalized American citizen who, as such, had to be read his Miranda rights.

Bloomberg's appeasement of the Islamic community is not new. In the days after the Fort Hood shootings last year, Bloomberg welcomed an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Siraj Wahhaj, to a meeting to discuss that shooting. That'd be like asking the fox into the hen house to help identify what killed the hen.


El Rushbo: Bloomberg & Obama Disappointed Bomber Wasn’t a Tea Partier

RUSH: You know, folks, if this weren’t so serious, it would be hilariously funny. The mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg is telling anybody and everybody that the Times Square bomber had to be somebody unhappy with Obama’s health care plan, a tea partier. And then after it was learned that, no, no, no, this guy’s a Muslim extremist from Pakistan, and there’s a lot more we know about the guy, then Bloomberg comes out, “We’re not going to tolerate any backlash against Middle Easterners or Muslims in New York City.” Of course, backlash against the tea party people was expected, it was hoped for. You have the entire Democrat Party, you have the entire United States legacy media hoping and praying that it was a domestic Republican tea party terrorist who listened to me, that set that bomb in an SUV in Times Square. That’s where we are in the country. I mean everybody knows that Faisal Shahzad, the mayor of New York shoulda known this, Obama shoulda said this in his presser today, everybody knows this guy was upset over the new Arizona immigration law and so he decided to blow up Times Square.

Why didn’t they go for that instead of the tea party and the health care bill? Bloomberg, you’re an absolute blithering, embarrassing idiot. If you’re going to try to relate this to modern politics, tell us that this Muslim from Pakistan is upset over the Arizona law. Health care is yesterday’s news. You are an absolute embarrassment. The whole Democrat Party is an embarrassment, the leftist movement in this country is an embarrassment and the media is so far gone that they’re a joke, an absolute, irresponsible joke. You would not believe what they’re trying to say about me and this oil spill. Before they’re through with this, it’s going to be my fault, not Bush’s, not Obama’s, not BP’s, but mine. I got e-mails last night from people: “Rush, did you really say that oil and water mixed is fine and we shouldn’t do anything?” This is my NFL St. Louis Rams purchase all over again. They’re making up things I didn’t say, and of course these absolute… (sigh) I’m thinking of an anatomy on the human body I could use in a family show to describe these absolute, total, worthless pieces of human debris at MSNBC. I’m in a great mood here, folks, don’t misunderstand anything.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had our boot on the throat of Muslim extremists just like we have our boot on BP, a company who is attempting to produce energy for us to improve our lifestyle and our economic output and our standard of living? Oh, no, we gotta keep a boot, a jackboot on the throat of British Petroleum. We gotta blame them for everything. When we have an obvious example here of predictable terrorism, no, can’t call it what it is. Gotta hold out hope it was a tea party guy run amuck. Guess what? Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. I wonder if this SUV had an Obama sticker on it. Faisal Shahzad is a registered Democrat. The original New York Times headline on this was: “US Arrests SUV Owner In Times Square Case.” They then changed it but that was their first headline: “US Arrests SUV Owner.” Fine, so he’s a Democrat. I want to see the Obama sticker on his car. Notice how quickly they got it outta Times Square before anybody could hop and maybe see an “Obama 2012″ bumper sticker on the damn car.


Obama administration says Emirates Airlines Dropped the Ball ( Obama Blames someone else AGAIN)

ABC News

Senior administration officials say that Faisal Shahzad was put on the no fly list on Monday at 12:30 pm ET.

So how was he able to board the Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai?

“It takes a few hours for the airlines system to catch up,” a senior administration official tells ABC news.

Another senior administration official adds that Emirates refreshes their system to update with US intelligence information periodically – but not frequently.

In any case, the first official says that airlines were “within minutes” of Shahzad being put on the no-fly list told to “look at a web-board” and manually check its passenger manifest against the news on the web board.

“That appears to not have happened” the official says. “For whatever reason there was a breakdown at the Emirates level.”

Emirates Airlines provided its locked-in passenger manifest to the Customs and Border Protection agency. The plane at that point can leave. But a CBP official caught Shahzad’s name on the manifest and the plane never left the gate.

“That redundancy is built in,” the official says. “It’s not luck it’s design. It was good work by CBP.”

Former 9/11 Commission vice chair and Democratic congressman Lee Hamilton seems less impressed.

Hamilton reminds ABC News that “the 9/11 commission recommended that you had to have biometric evidence, documentarian evidence of people coming in and exiting” the country. “We’ve done a pretty good job on the first part of it people entering the country. But with regard to those exiting the country we simply have not been able to set up a system to deal with that and it showed in this case.”

Hamilton says “we need to have in this country a system of checking people leaving the country so that we can protect against the very sort of thing that happened here -- or at least almost happened here.”


Wild Thing's comment........

Bloombergis an idiot to say the least.

And Obama would never stop blaming others for anthing. Freaking jerk! With him it is always someone elses fault.

Hamilton reminds ABC News that “the 9/11 commission recommended that you had to have biometric evidence, documentarian evidence of people coming in and exiting” the country. “We’ve done a pretty good job on the first part of it people entering the country.


Hey, Hamilton, go peddle your moldering tripe in southern AZ, CA, NM and TX.

Good luck with that.

Officials Arrest Pakistani-American Shahzad Faisal in Times Square Bomb Attempt

US officials arrested Shahzad Faisal of Connecticut tonight in connection to the attempted Times Square bombing.

NEW YORK - Authorities arrested a U.S. citizen in connection with the failed bombing attempt in New York's Times Square as he tried to leave the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.

Faisal Shahzad was arrested at 11:45 p.m. Monday night by Customs and Border Protection agents as he attempted to board an Emirates airlines flight to Dubai at New York's JFK airport, Holder and other officials said.

"It is clear that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans," Holder said.

Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Pakistan, was accused of driving a car bomb into Times Square, authorities said. He will appear in Manhattan Federal Court later on Tuesday.

Holder said the investigation was ongoing, and said that law enforcement officials had gathered "significant additional evidence." He urged Americans to remain vigilant.

"The American people should know that we are deploying every resource available, and we will not rest until we have brought everyone responsible to justice," Holder said.

Earlier, officials told The Associated Press that the suspect recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan, where he had a wife. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was at a sensitive stage.

Shahzad was being held in New York and couldn't be contacted. He has a Shelton, Conn., address and a phone number listed there wasn't in service. Investigators were searching his home.

Law enforcement officials said Shahzad bought the SUV that was parked in Times Square on Saturday from a Connecticut man three weeks ago and paid cash. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case .

NBC's Pete Williams earlier reported the man's name was on an e-mail that was sent to the seller of the car last month, as well as other evidence suggesting he had a role in the attempted bombing.

One federal law enforcement official, according to the Washington Post, cautioned that, while investigators are examining unspecified international communications that may be connected to the attack, "that doesn't get you to an international plot, a multi-organizational plot."

"We're just not there," the official told the Post.

Another U.S. official, recounting a conversation with intelligence officials, was quoted in the Washington Post: "Don't be surprised if you find a foreign nexus. ... They're looking at some telltale signs, and they're saying it's pointing in that direction."

The SUV was parked near offices of Viacom Inc., which owns Comedy Central. The network recently aired an episode of the animated show "South Park" that the group Revolution Muslim had complained insulted the Prophet Muhammad by depicting him in a bear costume.

Barack Obama telephoned handbag vendor Duane Jackson, 58, of Buchanan, N.Y., on Monday to commend him for alerting authorities to the smoking SUV. The White House said Obama thanked Jackson for his vigilance and for acting quickly to prevent serious trouble.

Nidal Hasan who was the Ft. Hood Shooter, the pany bomber at Christmas and this terrorist all connected to Pakistan.

The South Park thing might be the detail, but since he went to Paki months ago, for months, obviously he was coming back to do something

America’s Bloodless Coup d’etat!

America’s Bloodless Coup d’etat!

By Ron Ewart


“The essence of Government is power, and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.” James Madison

And it came to pass, on the 4th day of November, in the year of Our Lord 2008, a cabal of devious con men were elevated to power over all the people. Behind closed doors, under the cover of night and the veil of deceit, aided and abetted by a willing majority in a spineless Congress, most of academia and the lion’s share of the news media, they plotted the overthrow of a once-free America, from within.

Using the crises of a faltering economy, rising health care costs and the myth that is man-caused global warming, they put the wheels of their scheme into motion.

First, they nationalized the banks and the car companies.

Second, they nationalized the entire health care industry.

Third, they had already taken control of all American land, public and private, through the implementation of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 policy of social justice and radical environmental protection. Constitutionally protected property rights are now meaningless.

Fourth, they plan to put a stranglehold on industry and nationalize the means of energy exploration and production through the scam of buying and selling puffs of air containing carbon dioxide (CO2), using the so-called Cap and Trade legislation. The vehicle for this massive theft of our energy and our wealth, will be by criminal racketeering under the dubious name of the Chicago Climate Exchange. Costs of just about everything will skyrocket.

Fifth, in their quest for absolute power, they mean to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, thereby creating a block of socialist votes that will keep them in perpetual control of America, blocking any hopes of a conservative resurgence.

Finally, to complete their plan, they will be putting in place draconian regulations to bring Wall Street to its knees.

Their plan is almost complete.

The essence of their diabolical plan is the utter destruction of American freedom and the final subjugation of the American people under Marxist rule and the transfer of their wealth to pay for massive entitlement programs, “..... from those with the greatest capability, to those with the greatest need.” Karl Marx

There are two ways to conquer a nation. The first way is by the force of arms ..... war. The second way is much less bloody, simply buy off the people with money or favors and then wrap the recipients of the money and favors in chains, through the force of law. The former is open and notorious, with no doubt of the aggressor’s objectives. The latter is much more devious and easy to camouflage with propaganda, hype, distortion and lies. Either way, the end result is the same.

If a Hitler or the current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, wanted to conquer America, either one could not have come up with a more complete scheme to render the U. S. Constitution impotent, institute a police state, destroy our means of production, bankrupt our economy, take control of all land, food, water, energy and health care, replace freedom and liberty with the iron grip of a totalitarian state and turn the American people into nothing more than cattle with RFID chips in their ears, with their every move being monitored by an ever-watchful, intrusive government. That is of course, unless millions of Americans become wise to their plan before it is too late and rise up in defiant opposition to that scheme.

America is neck deep in a bloodless coup d’etat and the perpetrators of this coup hold three of the four aces in the deck. Millions of free Americans had better come up with four-of-a-kind pretty damn quick, or the perpetrators’ three aces are going to win the pot, as well as the game. After the game is lost, there will only be one more alternative to secure America’s freedom and that alternative is the least attractive of all other alternatives, with no guarantee of a positive outcome.

So don’t just sit there in a cesspool of anger and frustration. Get off the damn couch! Join a freedom group! Join a tea party! Get involved in local politics! Help a conservative politician get elected and hold that politician’s feet to the fire of conservative principles. Join with millions of Americans in the 9-12 March on Washington on the 9th through the 12th of September, 2010. Log onto their website at For God’s sake, don’t let the perpetrators of this diabolical bloodless coup d’etat win, or it’s going to be your hands and feet and your children’s hands and feet that will be in chains.

Ask yourself one question. How far is it from Marxism, to fascism, to a dictatorship? The answer is plain for everyone to see. It is burned into the pages of 20th Century history, painted in deep red crimson. If we let it, history is about to repeat itself.


Wild Thing's comment.......

It’s Obama’s “two-year coup plan.”........How to Hugo Chavez-ize America.

The more court appointments he gets through the more permanent his agenda becomes.

There are bold truths in the article, peowe also need to recognize the efforts of Ron Ewart, the author, and heed his message.

We can make a difference - WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.The Tea Parties, Townhalls, phone calls, emails etc. all added up have been happening more and more. But, we must keep it up!.

Tea Partiers Sound Call

Susquehanna County District Attorney Jason Legg described the Constitution as a cage to keep the power of the federal government in check at the Tea Party rally held April 15 on the Green in Montrose. “We’ve lost our way,” said Legg

Tea Partiers sound call

“Hear us in November,” said Bruce Paskoff as he tested the sound system at the Tax Day Tea Party demonstration held April 15 on the Montrose Village Green.

More than 200 people gathered for the rally, waving signs and flags – some wore Paul Revere hats while others donned tea bags.

The crowd presented a cross-section of Susquehanna County - filled with mothers pushing strollers, veterans, elderly, working-class men, children and folks of all ages.

Many signs referenced government spending, taxes, the national debt, and health care reform while others specifically targeted Sen. Arlen Specter, Rep. Christopher Carney, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama.

Paskoff, along with wife, Edna, of Forest Lake, coordinated the event.

A busload of Bradford County residents joined the demonstration.

Sylvia Ellis, one of the coordinator’s of last year’s Tea Party in Bradford County, said the theme of this year’s rally was “Vote them out,” echoing Paskoff’s sound check remark.

Gary Haskell, a Jackson area pastor, spoke first, noting, “I’m a motorcycle riding, gun carrying, Bible loving preacher and I don’t apologize for it.”

He also expressed his dissatisfaction with “an administration forcing socialism and communism down our throats.”

As did Tom Helmacy, of Auburn Twp. who said he was at the rally because, “I want to see the socialist movement stopped.”

Vic Lawson from Bradford County said the people should be the “watchdogs of government” and he believed the news media had shirked its duty in its coverage of Tea Party events.

“I don’t see violence and destruction of property at Tea Party events,” Lawson said. “I see patriots coming together across the country.”

Donna Benjamin, of Hallstead, said this was the second Tea Party event she has attended with her three young sons.

“I feel taxes have been raised enough,” she said. “Government is not being held accountable for what it does with our money.”

Bill Ord, of Brooklyn, said he came out to the rally to “see what was going on and to put my support behind it to help change things in Washington and Harrisburg.”

Susquehanna County District Attorney Jason Legg spoke about the Constitution, the Founding Fathers and the current state of government.

Legg said, “The Founding Fathers fought not for themselves but for principles bigger than their selves.

Legg described the Constitution as a cage constructed by the Founders to keep the power of the federal government in check.

“They wanted a government that did little. That’s where we’ve lost our way,” said Legg.
“The Constitution was created not to give the government power but to protect people from government.”
Legg said a “right does not mean and entitlement” and said that where the federal government has become “confused.”
The district attorney told the crowd he spoke with Carney immediately following a town hall meeting the congressman hosted at the Susquehanna County Courthouse last year, and he asked Carney about the constitutionality of the health care bill.

Legg told the crowd Carney told him the interstate commerce clause allowed for the government to mandate health care.

Legg said he questioned how if insurance companies cannot sell their products across state lines, how it could qualify as interstate commerce.

Legg said Carney also told him that Article I, Section VIII of the Constitution (the general welfare clause) would allow for it as well

“If it’s allowed, there is no end to (government) telling us what we can or can’t do,” said Legg.
“(Congress has) created a dependent culture drugged by pork and entitlements” Legg said. “They’ve been water boarding our Constitution for decades.”
“We will be the silent majority no more,” he ended, as some wiped tears from their eyes and others stood to cheer.
At the podium a Jewish-German immigrant said, “I came to America for freedom. I’m a very mad Pennsylvania woman with my religion and my gun.” The three GOP candidates –Malcolm Derk, David Madeira and Tom Marino - vying for a shot to challenge Carney in November attended the rally and spoke to the crowd.
Of the Tea Party movement, Marino said, “This May and November, Washington is going to be stunned as to how powerful the voters really are.”
Other speakers/candidates included Rep. Sandra Major; Rep. Tina Pickett, Sen. Gene Yaw; and for gubernatorial candidates Sam Rohrer and Tom Corbett, Jerry Birmelin and Dan Meuser, respectively.


Wild Thing's comment.......

I love how the Tea Parties are making a difference. And the neat thing too is that a lot of the people that go to them have never spoken out about politics before. They would vote but this is the first time they are really getting involved.

Janet Napolitano: Administration "certainly considering' possiblity of terrorism in car bomb"

Napolitano: Administration 'certainly considering' possibility of terrorism in car bomb

The Hill

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday morning that the administration is "certainly considering" that the car bomb found in New York's Times Square could be an act of terror.

"Luckily, no one is hurt, and now the full attention of city, state and federal law enforcement will be turned to bringing the guilty party to justice in this act of terrorism," New York Gov. David Paterson said in a statement.

When asked about Paterson's characterization of the incident, in which a T-shirt vendor noticed smoke coming from the back of an SUV and notified police, Napolitano said forensic evidence plus video footage from the area was being analyzed.

"We're certainly considering it now that it could be an act of terrorism or was intended to be an act of terrorism," Napolitano said on "Fox News Sunday."

Napolitano said they were "not ruling anything out."

On ABC's "This Week," Napolitano indicated that officials see it as an isolated incident.

"Right now, we have no evidence that it is anything other than a one-off, but we are alerting state, local officials around the country, letting them know what is going on," she said.

Napolitano said there wasn't an indication that New Yorkers should be too alarmed.

"Times Square I think is now safe, and I believe that right now, we have no information other than it is a one-off," she said. "But nonetheless, we are alerting state and local law enforcement, everybody to be on their toes."


Wild Thing's comment.......

...the administration is "certainly considering" that the car bomb found in New York's Times Square could be an act of terror."

UM....She used the "T" word? Isn't that verboten?

Well, that's just plain being mean-spirited and hateful to think that. ( rolling my eyes) Can’t putting anything over on this woman, can you? I’m glad she’s on top of it. I feel much safer now.

I guess she just hasn’t figured out how to blame the tea party yet.

The only way to respond to the idiocy is with the truth:

Of course it was terrorism. The only question is who were the perpetrators. Anyone who cannot decide whether an act like this is “terrorism” until they know who the perpetrator is, is “politicizing” terrorism

Why isn’t she home making cookies or something . THIS is what I have protecting my life from terrorists????

I want a former military, former Marine, Special Forces, a Navy Seal, Army, Air Force, Navy Veteran, a CIA type. I want a guy watching over me .......NOT some woman that KICKS STARTS her vibrator!!

Obama on GDP: "I Measure Progress By A Different Pulse" He Sure As Hell Does It Is Destroying Our Country!

"The economy that was losing jobs a year ago is creating jobs today. After the single biggest economic crisis in our lifetimes, we’re heading in the right direction. We’re moving forward. Our economy is stronger, that economic heartbeat is growing stronger. But I measure progress by a different pulse."


Wild Thing's comment.......

And this is one ( more ) PATHETIC comment he just made. I am actually a bit afraid of what he will do next.
I think he is saying that he won’t stop until America no longer has a pulse. He pretty much thinks he can say whatever he likes, the press will report it as Gospel fact and the sheeple will believe it.

“..But I measure progress by a different pulse.”

I’ll say. You measure of a different pulse is “How many freedoms have I destroyed today, this week, this month.”

Or is it, “How much money have I stolen from working people to my lazy on welfare voters?”

Or even, “How much money can I skim off for myself,” Chicago thug?

Commie lying fascist dictator.

David Madeira for Pennsylvania's 10th Congressional District

I really like what he says:...this is from his website............

The challenges that face America are not unprecedented, but they are serious. The lack of responsiveness from our elected leaders has convinced me that we need to come together to return the reigns of power in America to their rightful owners, We The People.
Last summer I spoke at Tea Party rallies and saw my friends and neighbors express their frustration with the rush to government control of just about every aspect of our lives. Washington’s Wall Street Bailouts and Big Business Takeovers have left us with double digit unemployment, declining wages and unfathomable debt.
The American people don’t want to be governed by Democrats or Republicans, they want to govern themselves according to the Constitution and they want their elected representatives to do just that - represent them.
I’m determined, with your help and support, to take up the challenge to restore the Constitutional Representative Republic we were given by the incredible sacrifice and wisdom of our Founding Fathers. I’m running for Congress to represent the ideals of Faith, Family and Freedom that we all hold dear.

Tristate Sons of Liberty Announce Pennsylvania Congresional District 10 Endorsement

"Tristate Sons of Liberty is an alliance of like-minded patriots committed to restoring, upholding and defending American values, virtues, principles and ideals as outlined by the Constitution of the United States. Members of the Sons of Liberty actively advance this ideology through political action, financial, educational and emotional support. We are an organization sworn to uphold the traditions and vision of America’s Founding Fathers inasmuch as we deem to effect political candidates for office, form lobbying efforts, promote public demonstrations and speak out against all those who wish to denigrate our beloved country. We stand firmly on the Constitutional precepts that serve as the foundation of a free and prosperous people, regardless of race, religion or gender."


On Issues:

Health Care - Defeat. Defund. REPEAL! I reject any notion of government-run health care. More government intervention will only exasperate the problems of access and affordability. Private ownership and individual choice are the keys to real health care finance reform.

We the People - The Founding Fathers knew that the power for self-governance comes from our Creator and is lent to the government by the people through the electoral process. For far to long we have turned that power over to elected officials without holding them accountable for how they use it. That is about to change.

The Constitution ...defines the limits of the federal government’s power and protects our God-given rights. The original intent of the authors will guide my application of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as I seek to roll back the encroachment of government on our liberties.

The Second Amendment ... is not about hunting, it’s about self-defense and liberty. I support an individual’s right to own guns. I oppose national gun registration or other attempts at federal licensing of law abiding gun owners as a violation of the Second Amendment and an invasion of the privacy of honest citizens.

Private Property - I support the right of our citizens to own private property as protected by the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution.

Immigration - I support measures to ensure that the immigration system is structured to address the needs of national security. I will work for real border security including a technologically-supported physical fence and oppose any amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Lawsuit abuse reform - I support legal reform to eliminate frivolous lawsuits. “Loser Pays” provisions will protect access to courts by those legitimately harmed while providing the proper incentives to reduce unnecessary lawsuits.

National Security - I oppose Miranda rights and civilian trials for terrorists. Our military and intelligence agents should treat terrorists as unlawful combatants and be able to interrogate and prosecute in Guantanamo or other appropriate military facilities without fear if they follow the time-tested rules of our military system of Justice.

The Tenth Amendment ... It doesn’t really need explanation, just application. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."


Wild Thing's comment........

I like these quotes he has at his campaign website:

"“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Thomas Jefferson

Crist A No-Show On CNN ~ Bye Bye Charlie Get Lost!

Charlie Crist pooltime hahahhaa.......Buy you a daquiri? Strawberry, or Razzleberry?

Crist a no-show on CNN


Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, the newly minted independent candidate for the Senate, canceled a sit-down interview that was to have aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Host Candy Crowley said on the program that “we had requested them from both Governor Crist and Marco Rubio. After initially agreeing to a sit- down interview, Crist backed out.” She did air an interview with Rubio.

Crist lost much of his campaign staff last week after dropping out of the Republican primary, where he was trailing Rubio by double digits, to run as an independent. His campaign did not return a request for comment about the late cancellation.

In an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Crist said that he would caucus with “the people” if elected.

"For Marco, this was yet another opportunity to discuss the issues and ideas that have been the centerpiece of his campaign since it was launched a year ago,” Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos said. “ In Charlie Crist, all we've seen this past week are more examples of his whatever-it-takes-to-win approach to climbing the political ladder."

In a pre-taped interview from earlier in the week that was to have aired on CNN Sunday along with the canceled interview, Crist said that “all people will do is, all they’re going to do is attack each other all day long. People like this, they go home and watch cable television, watch broadcast television, and they see those kinds of arguments and it breaks their hearts.”


Wild Thing's comment.........

LOL, I wonder why he stiffed CNN but had an interview with NBC?

It would be interesting to see how much staff he lost. I guess he will be getting Democrat volunteers/staff now. Crist - An egomaniac, a fool, and a self-centered opportunist. And a radioactive one. His staff better be gone - they will be blackballed from any work for any Republicans in the future.

Crist is beyond pathetic .

Car Bomb Found in Times Square

Heroic cops stopped a car bomb from blowing up in the heart of Times Square Saturday night.

NY Daily News

Three heroic cops and a quick-thinking street vendor stopped a madman from detonating a car bomb in the heart of Times Square Saturday night, law enforcement officials told the Daily News.

The T-shirt vendor - a Vietnam vet - told Officer Wayne Rhatigan there was smoke coming from a Nissan SUV on the southwest corner of 45th St. and Broadway about 7 p.m., sources said.

Rhatigan approached the car, saw the smoke, and sprang into action.

"I did a lap around the vehicle. The inside was smoking," Rhatigan told the Daily News Saturday night. "I smelled gunpowder and knew it might blow. I thought it might blow any second."

He grabbed two rookie female cops patrolling the area. Together, they pushed hundreds of people away from the scene as they called for backup, he said.

The Fire Department and bomb squad rushed to the scene.

What they found was stunning: a running SUV packed with three propane tanks, two red 5-gallon plastic jugs of gasoline, a clock, electrical components and a canister of gunpowder, police sources said.

"We are very lucky," Mayor Bloomberg said at an early morning press conference at the scene, still wearing a tuxedo and red bow tie. "Thanks to alert New Yorkers and professional police officers we avoided what could have been a very deadly event."

The two rookie cops reported seeing a man running away from the scene as they approached the car.

Police spokesman Paul Browne said cops were investigating a report that someone was seen running from the vehicle at some point and are reviewing security videotapes.

"It looks as if the perp was trying to light it up, and was interrupted by the cops, panicked and took off," a law enforcement source said.
"It looked like someone tried to detonate it and we got to it in time," a police source said. "This is a big deal. It has the makings of a real car bomb."

Cops began evacuating the Crossroads of the World as the bomb squad used a robot to get inside the car.

Tourists rushed out of the Marriott Marquis hotel and several Broadway shows.

Seven big shows went dark, including "Billy Elliot" and "The Lion King," which is located directly behind the would-be car bomb.

The curtain at "God of Carnage" and "Red" went up a half hour later than usual, but those shows were not canceled, said spokesman Adrian Bryan-Brown. Restaurants like Sardi's and TGI Friday's were also evacuated, witnesses said.

Police said the blue Pathfinder appeared to be stolen and had Connecticut license plates belonging to another car.

The man seen fumbling with the device vanished into the crowd and had not been found as of early this morning.

The Homeland Security Department was aware of the situation, but the NYPD was the lead agency involved in the investigation, sources said.

"The matter is being taken seriously," said Paul Bresson, head of the FBI's public affairs office at bureau headquarters in Washington.


Car Bomb Found in Times Square

Thousands of tourists, theatergoers cleared from Crossroads of the World

NBC New York

Updated 3:25 AM EDT, Sun, May 2, 2010

The NYPD has removed an improvised car bomb from a sports utility vehicle parked in Times Square, including propane and gasoline tanks, consumer-grade fireworks and an "amateurish" wiring device which included a clock and wires.

Thousands of tourist and theatergoers were cleared away in response as police cordoned off a large portion of the Crossroads of the Road on a warm and crowded night.

"We avoided what we could have been a very deadly event," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "It certainly could have exploded and had a pretty big fire and a decent amount of explosive impact."

An alert T-shirt vendor spotted the suspicious vehicle, which had white smoke billowing from it and smelled of gunpowder, and notified a member of the NYPD mounted patrol at about 6:30 this evening, Bloomberg said at a press conference shortly after 2:15 am.

An NYPD robot arm broke windows of the dark green Nissan Pathfinder to check for explosive materials while heavily armed police and emergency vehicles shut down Times Square, teeming with taxis and theatergoers.

"We have no idea who did this and why," said a tuxedo-clad Bloomberg who rushed to scene, along with Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, from Washington DC where they attended the annual Washington Correspondents Dinner.
Kelly says the car contained three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components. He says a black metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered. The mayor said authorities were reviewing security videotapes.

Sources said the license plate on the Pathfinder traces back to a Ford, not a Nissan. The mayor said the police contacted the person who last legally had the Connecticut license plates, That person said the Connecticut plates were last legally used in car that was junked, Bloomberg said.

The car was suspicious in more ways than one: It was not parked right at the curb, the flashers were going and there was a "light smoking haze" in the passenger compartment.

President Barack Obama has been briefed on the situation. In a statement, the administration said that the president, who also attended an annual dinner for White House news correspondents Saturday night, praised the quick response by the New York Police Department.

Obama has also directed his homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, to advise New York officials that the federal government is prepared to provide support.

The Joint Terrorism Task Force was on the scene as an ever widening radius of blocks was closed as a precaution. Police evacuated several residential and commercial buildings and cleared several streets of thousands of tourists milling around on a warm Saturday night.

Shelly Carlisle, of Portland, Ore., said police crowded into her Broadway theater after the curtain closed on "Next to Normal," a show on the same block where the SUV was found.

"At the end of the show, the police came in. We were told we had to leave," Carlisle said. "They said there was a bomb scare."

In December, a van without license plates parked in Times Square led police to block off part of the area for about two hours. A police robot examined the vehicle. Clothes, racks and scarves were found inside.

In March 2008, a hooded bicyclist hurled an explosive device at a military recruiting center in the heart of Times Square, producing a flash, smoke and full-scale emergency response. No suspect was ever identified.

In December, police evacuated thousands of holiday tourists from Times Square after finding a white van that had been parked there for days without license plates and blacked-out windows. No bombs were found, and police later said they overlooked the van because it contained a parking placard for a nonprofit police group.


New York mayor Michael Bloomberg says a suspicious vehicle in Times Square "did indeed contain an explosive device." Police found the device in the smoking sport utility vehicle Saturday evening.

While all this was going on Obama was at the WH correspondants dinner .

The car bomb was parked outside the entrance of MTV Networks, the parent company of Comedy Central. I am not sure but isn't that where they do South Park???

The T-shirt vendor - a Vietnam vet - told Officer Wayne Rhatigan there was smoke coming from a Nissan SUV on the southwest corner of 45th St. and Broadway about 7 p.m., sources said.

Thank God no one killed or injured and a huge thank you to the Vietnam Veteran.

Dictator and Constitution Hater Obama Making Direct Hits At Patriots That Love America

Obama Mocks Fox, Teabaggers


Obama takes direct aim at anti-government rhetoric


May 1st, 2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – In a blunt caution to political friend and foe, President Barack Obama said Saturday that partisan rants and name-calling under the guise of legitimate discourse pose a serious danger to America's democracy, and may incite "extreme elements" to violence.

The comments, in a graduation speech at the University of Michigan's huge football stadium, were Obama's most direct take about the angry politics that have engulfed his young presidency after long clashes over health care, taxes and the role of government.

took direct aim at the anti-government language so prevalent today.

"What troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad," Obama said after receiving an honorary doctor of laws degree. "When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us."

Government, he said, is the roads we drive on and the speed limits that keep us safe. It's the men and women in the military, the inspectors in our mines, the pioneering researchers in public universities.

The financial meltdown dramatically showed the dangers of too little government, he said, "when a lack of accountability on Wall Street nearly led to the collapse of our entire economy."


From New York Times’ Prescriptions Blog:

"Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit” Democratic voters “and it will encourage the extremists.”


Wild Thing's comment........

The protesters are speaking out against his destructive policies. He rams obamacare through then goes out and attacks the 70% plus polulation that do NOT want obamacare. Is this anything new from him? Nope, he has been threatening and attacking people speaking out about him since day one of his campaign and continues.

He has done these attacks on this with FOX NEWS, Rush Limbaugh etc. as well.

Obama, YOU ARE a socialist... and as far as whether you were born on U.S. soil, you have yet to provide evidence you were. So you pathetically ignorant a$$ clown, tell me again how Tea Party folks are “extremists” by holding these opinions?

The purpose of his policies is to destroy America and the American traditional culture. Obama's lies will get much worse as Americans stop buying it they will think of new and worse lies! Be prepared, but continue to “battle” using the truth.

One thing about a liar... they forget their stories and lose credibility quickly!

Obama at the Correspondents Dinner

Obama notes things hard to find, keep: 'love and a birth certificate'

The Hill

Obama at the Correspondents Dinner Jokes About His Birth Certificate Being Hard To Find

"My approval ratings are very high in the country of my birth"

Obama: "There are few things in life that are harder to find and more important to keep than love, well love and a birth certificate"


Barack Obama took shots at his poll drops, birthers, death panels, and Arizona's new immigration law on Saturday night.

Obama opened for comedian Jay Leno at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, noting that Leno was the "only person whose ratings fell more than mine.

"I'm also glad I'm speaking first, because we've all seen what happens when someone takes the time slot after Leno," Obama said in reference to the Conan O'Brien "Tonight Show" fiasco.

But, the president joked, "I know my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth."

Leno prodded back at Obama when it was his turn at bat. First up: the controversy over Obama's plans with the space program.

"We can point to one achievement during his administration," Leno said. "We did get one astronaut on 'Dancing on the Stars.'"
"He loves to socialize," Leno added of the president. "Healthcare. Car companies."

~ snipet ~

"And we all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID," Obama said, taking a shot at the controversial law that has sparked protests -- and calls on Capitol Hill to move on immigration reform. "Adios amigos!"

But instead, the president focused on the domestic priority that he spent much of his term thus far getting pushed through.

"There aren't a few secret provisions in the healthcare plan," Obama said. "There are, like, hundreds."

Societal Collapse, Democrat’s Agenda by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Societal Collapse, Democrat’s Agenda

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

An AP article appearing in “My Way” states: President Barack Obama has said the 1993 law, known as "don't ask, don't tell," unfairly punishes patriotic Americans and asked Congress to repeal it. When Obama argued in favor of abortion, he cited the prospect of one of his daughters being “unfairly punished” by an unwanted pregnancy.

Conflict of varying interests and perspectives is one of the outcomes of living in a free society governed by laws that flow under the aegis of the U.S. Constitution. Unfortunately, Obama’s “unfairly” perspective sweeps aside another, larger perspective and that is when will politicians and the courts begin to weigh in on what is fair for the majority rather than impose the will of a tyrannical MINORITY.

An example of the will of the tyrannical minority was most recently demonstrated by the Democrat Congress and Obama Administration with passage of the “destroy the greatest healthcare system in the world” Health Care Bill. Granted, there was a majority of members in Congress who voted for it, but it was over the strong objections and warnings of a vast majority of ordinary citizens, with every poll registering their strong “no.”

Courts have repeatedly overruled the will of the majority, ostensibly in favor of protecting and advancing the rights of minorities against the so called, “tyrannical majority.” Okay, one gets it, but the obverse tyrannical shoe is more often than not used to impose the will of a tyrannical MINORITY upon the majority.

Once again the tyrannical minority is at work, this time on imposing the acceptance of a lifestyle on the U.S. Military. There is wide and deep majority opposition to homosexuals serving openly in the military for valid reasons having nothing to do with the commitment and patriotism of homosexuals. But it has everything to do with living arrangements and the inherent predatory nature of homosexual behavior in U.S. military barracks setting.

Men who look on other men, and women who regard other women as sex objects are predatory no matter how liberals and other ignorant advocates try to sugar coat it. If homosexuals want to serve, the right is inscribed in law. If their goal is to serve openly, the underlying question is “why?” There can only be two answers: First, to be able to openly engage in courtship under the rules of fraternization that already exist and are routinely violated, witness combat zone pregnancies. Yes, it takes two to tango. The second is to advance the political agenda of total societal acceptance of homosexual behavior, without regard to effects. Infliction of liberal’s homosexual MINORITY agenda and lifestyle, upon a tolerant but reticent majority will lead to further societal collapse.

One must stop the train and ask, “What is the purpose of the United States Armed Forces?” Is it to engage in combat or be a reflection of U.S. Society? If it is the former then we have already woefully compromised its mission by the admission of women into combat zones.

But politicians are so concerned about “gender” equality that they have been willing to do that and accept the degradation since even in its degraded state U.S. Armed Forces remain overall superior to all others thanks to economics, technology, training, leadership and management. If it is the latter, then it is destined to disintegrate right along with U.S. Society that is presently in the second stage of collapse, “liberalism” manifest by moral excess and societal decay being the first.

Ask any, except a careerist military leader whose interest is the next star or sucking up, and he will tell you that he has to spend too much time dealing with social, under the aegis of leadership, issues that could be better spent leading, training, managing and fighting. Now, add to that the host of additional issues brought on by openly serving homosexuals. Passing a law, writing a regulation is simple by comparison to implementation of those laws and regulations where the rubber meets the road.

Implementation of political correctness regulations in the Army is a prime example. For instance there is the Chief of Staff of the Army’s idiotic comment that his concern about the Army’s terrorist attack upon itself by Major Nidal Malik Hasan is the attack’s potential adverse impact on diversity. Wow!

Isn’t watching Democrats destroy America fun? Not! Conservatives of all stripes need to wake up and act, lest they wake up dead!

Semper Fidelis

What Arizona Must Live With by Mark Steyn

What Arizona Must Live With


by Mark Steyn

As I write, I have my papers on me — and not just because I’m in Arizona. I’m an immigrant, and it is a condition of my admission to this great land that I carry documentary proof of my residency status with me at all times and be prepared to produce it to law-enforcement officials, whether on a business trip to Tucson or taking a 20-minute stroll in the woods back at my pad in New Hampshire.

Who would impose such an outrageous Nazi fascist discriminatory law?

Er, well, that would be Franklin Roosevelt.

But don’t let the fine print of the New Deal prevent you from going into full-scale meltdown. “Boycott Arizona-stan!” urges MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, surely a trifle Islamophobically. What has some blameless Central Asian basket case done to deserve being compared to a hellhole like Phoenix?

Boycott Arizona Iced Tea, jests Travis Nichols of Chicago. It is “the drink of fascists.” Just as regular tea is the drink of racists, according to Newsweek’s in-depth and apparently non-satirical poll analysis of anti-Obama protests. At San Francisco’s City Hall, where bottled water is banned as the drink of climate denialists, Mayor Gavin Newsom is boycotting for real: All official visits to Arizona have been canceled indefinitely. You couldn’t get sanctions like these imposed at the U.N. Security Council, but then, unlike Arizona, Iran is not a universally reviled pariah.

Will a full-scale economic embargo devastate the Copper State? Who knows? It’s not clear to me what San Francisco imports from Arizona. Chaps? But, at any rate, like the bottled-water ban, it sends a strong signal that this kind of hate will not be tolerated.

The same day that Mayor Newsom took his bold stand, I saw a phalanx of police officers doing the full Robocop — black body armor, helmets, and visors — as they marched down the street. Goosestepping? No, it’s actually quite hard to goosestep in those steel-reinforced kneepads. So just regular marching. Naturally, I assumed they were Arizona state troopers performing a routine traffic stop. In fact, they were the police department of Quincy, Ill., facing down a group of genial tea-party grandmas in sun hats and American-flag T-shirts. They were acting at the behest of President Obama’s Secret Service, who rightly recognized a polite knot of citizens singing “God Bless America” as a clear and present danger to the republic.

If I were a member of the Quincy PD, I’d wear a full-face visor, too, because I wouldn’t be able to look myself in the mirror. It’s a tough job making yourself a paramilitary laughingstock.

And yet the coastal frothers denouncing Arizona as the Third Reich or, at best, apartheid South Africa seem entirely relaxed about the ludicrous and embarrassing sight of peaceful protesters being menaced by camp stormtroopers from either a dinner-theater space-opera or uniforms night at Mayor Newsom’s reelection campaign.

Meanwhile, in Britain, a flailing Prime Minister Gordon Brown was on the stump in northern England and met an actual voter, one Gillian Duffy. Alas, she made the mistake of expressing very mild misgivings about immigration. And not the black, brown, and yellow kind, but only the faintly swarthy Balkan blokes from Eastern Europe. And actually, all she said about immigrants was that “you can’t say anything about the immigrants.” The prime minister brushed it aside blandly, made some chit-chat about her grandkids, and got back in his limo, forgetting that he was still miked. “That was a disaster,” he sighed. “Should never have put me with that woman. Whose idea was that . . . ? She’s just this sort of bigoted woman.”

After the broadcast of his “gaffe,” and the sight of Brown slumped with his head in his hands as a radio interviewer replayed the remarks to him, the prime minister found himself going round to Gillian Duffy’s home to abase himself before her. Most of the initial commentary focused on what the incident revealed about Gordon Brown’s character. But the larger point is what it says about the governing elites and their own voters. Mrs. Duffy is a lifelong supporter of Mr. Brown’s Labour party, but she represents the old working class the party no longer has much time for. Travis Nichols may be joking about “the drink of fascists,” but, in the same way as Gavin Newsom and Keith Olbermann, Gordon Brown genuinely believes Gillian Duffy has drunk deeply from the drink of bigots for so much as raising the subject of immigration. How dare she! Ungrateful bigot!

Gillian Duffy lives in the world Gordon Brown has created. He, on the other hand, gets into his chauffeured limo and is whisked far away from it.

That’s Arizona. To the coastal commentariat, “undocumented immigrants” are the people who mow your lawn while you’re at work and clean your office while you’re at home. (That, for the benefit of Linda Greenhouse, is the real apartheid: the acceptance of a permanent “undocumented” servant class by far too many “documented” Americans who assuage their guilt by pathetic sentimentalization of immigration.) But in border states, illegal immigration is life and death. I spoke this week to a lady who has a camp of illegals on the edge of her land: She lies awake at night, fearful for her children and alert to strange noises in the yard. President Obama, shooting from his lip, attacked the new law as an offense against “fairness.” Where’s the fairness for this woman’s family? Because her home is in Arizona rather than Hyde Park, Chicago, she’s just supposed to get used to living under siege? Like Gillian Duffy in northern England, this lady has to live there, while the political class that created this situation climbs back into the limo and gets driven far away.

Almost every claim made for the benefits of mass immigration is false. Europeans were told that they needed immigrants to help prop up their otherwise unaffordable social entitlements: In reality, Turks in Germany have three times the rate of welfare dependency as ethnic Germans, and their average retirement age is 50. Two-thirds of French imams are on the dole.

But wait: What about the broader economic benefits? The World Bank calculated that if rich countries increased their workforce by a mere 3 percent through admitting an extra 14 million people from developing countries, it would benefit the populations of those rich countries by $139 billion. Wow!

As Christopher Caldwell points out in his book Reflections on the Revolution in Europe, “The aggregate gross domestic product of the advanced economies for the year 2008 is estimated by the International Monetary Fund at close to $40 trillion.” So an extra $139 billion works out to a spectacular 0.35 percent. Caldwell compares the World Bank argument to Austin Powers’s nemesis, Dr. Evil, holding the world hostage for one million dollars! “Sacrificing 0.0035 of your economy would be a pittance to pay for starting to get your country back.” A dependence on mass immigration is not a gold-mine or an opportunity to flaunt your multicultural bona fides, but a structural weakness, and should be addressed as such.

The majority of Arizona’s schoolchildren are already Hispanic. So, even if you sealed the border today, the state’s future is as a Hispanic society; that’s a given. Maybe it’ll all work out swell. The citizenry never voted for it, but they got it anyway. Because all the smart guys in the limos bemoaning the bigots knew what was best for them.

This is classic Mark Steyn, but this time some anger is noticeable in his satire .He is fantastic.

Fred Thompson on Obama: I'm Concerned Most When His Real Thoughts Come Out

Former Senator Fred Thompson spoke at the Preserving American Liberty “Winning Back America” Conference in Independence, Missouri today. Thompson was asked about Obama’s income– too much. He said he is concerned most when President Obama goes off his TelePrompter and his real thoughts and feelings come out

Question from Darla Jaye, host, 980 KMBZ: How much income is too much, Fred?

Fred Thompson: What does the president make?

Darla Jaye: About five million dollars.

Fred Thompson: Whatever salary he makes, that’s too much for him… This is a guy who’s made several million dollars in the past few years. He’s done two things. He’s during his life. He’s been a community organizer and politician and he’s written two books, both about himself. In all seriousness… sometimes the president gets off script and his true thoughts and feelings come out. He really believes this. That’s what concerns me more than anything else.


Wild Thing's comment........

Fred is right to be concerned. But I also am concerned when Obama is ON scrpt, he is dangerous either way.

Pinal County, AZ. Deputy Shot by Illegal Immigrants in Desert

Live video of search for illegal shooter (filmed from a helicopter)

After a frantic hour-long desert search, authorities found a deputy wounded in a shootout Friday with suspected illegal immigrants apparently hauling bales of marijuana along a major smuggling corridor in southern Arizona. (April 30)


Pinal Co. Deputy Shot by Illegal Immigrants in Desert

FOX news Phoenix

A Pinal County deputy was shot by illegal immigrants and drug smugglers during a patrol Friday south of Phoenix. At least one of the illegal immigrants has an AK47 because he used it to shoot the deputy.

A Pinal County sheriff's deputy has been released from the hospital after he's shot in the abdomen by a group of suspected illegal immigrants and drug smugglers Friday during patrol south of Phoenix.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu says that Deputy Louie Puroll, 53, was essentially ambushed by five men, one of which who fired an AK-47 some 20 to 30 rounds at him, hitting him once.

It happened during routine patrol Friday afternoon in the desert near the I-8 west of Casa Grande, an area known as a drug smuggling corridor between Mexico and Phoenix. The deputy radioed in to report he was shot in the abdomen, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office says.

The deputy was tracking a group of five suspected illegal immigrants with several bales of marijuana when he was shot. Two of the five suspects were armed.

The deputy stayed on the line with authorities and used GPS on his phone to help guide them to his location.

A DPS Ranger helicopter with a paramedic landed and airlifted the deputy to a hospital. Deputy Puroll had a chunk of skin torn from just above his left kidney and is reportedly in good condition. Puroll was released from the Casa Grande Regional Medical Center after a few hours of treatment.

Meanwhile, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office tactical team is searching for three more suspects who fled. So far, two people have been caught.

Customs and Border Protection agents stationed in Tucson were also sent to help in the search, and are equipped with night-vision technology in case the manhunt extends into the morning. Sheriff Joe also dispatched some of his deputies, who were participating in a crime sweep in the valley.

Over 200 officers and deputies from various jurisdictions are patroling a 10 by 10 mile area, and six helicopters are flying overhead.

"Just to capture what is going on here, this is literally a trafficking corridor... not just for human smuggling but drug smuggling. And where are they going? North to Maricopa County," says Sheriff Babeu.

The shooting comes on the heels of the passage of a controversial Arizona immigration enforcement law.


And this.............

Pinal County Sheriff's deputy shot after traffic stop

A Pinal County Sheriff's deputy was shot in the stomach Friday by an undocumented immigrant off Interstate 8, according sheriff's officials.

Lt. Tami Villar told 12 News that the search and rescue deputy was investigating a load of marijuana in the desert and was confronted by five suspects. She also said the wounded deputy is expected to survive.

Deputies believe at least two people were armed with long guns and at least one handgun. The deputy, whose name was not released, was patrolling alone in what is considered a high-traffic drug and human-smuggling corridor.

Villar said the deputy radioed dispatch about 4:30 p.m. to say he had been shot off Interstate 8 and Arizona 84, but he could not be found when authorities arrived at the scene.

The deputy was located more than an hour later and taken to the Casa Grande Medical Center for treatment.

His condition was not available.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office dispatched a helicopter and members of its SWAT team to Pinal County to assist in the case, said department spokesman Lt. Brian Lee. Lee said at 5:45 p.m. there were reports over the police scanner that suspects were shooting at a police helicopter. Lee did not know which agency was operating the helicopter.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was headed to Pinal County to assist in the investigation, Lee said. The Border Patrol has sent agents to assist the Pinal County Sheriff's Office with the investigation, said Mario Escalante, a Border Patrol spokesman assigned to the Tucson sector.

"We are headed out to assist," he said.

Escalante said he had no further details about the shooting.

The nearest Border Patrol station in the area is located in Casa Grande.


The drug cartel will kill to deliver this stuff............................




Wild Thing's comment........

Prayers for the officer & his family.

The illegal alien supporters try to say these criminals are just pussycats looking for a better life.

This is from Governor Jan Brewer at her Facebook page;

"Governor Jan Brewer Please pray for the sheriff's deputy that was shot earlier today by a group of suspected illegal immigrants in our Arizona desert."


Her note about this...her statement

My prayers and those of many are with the Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy who was shot earlier this evening. It appears from early reports I have received that the deputy will fully recover from his gunshot wound. The hunt for the perpetrators of this attack is still underway, and our state, local, tribal, and federal law enforcement officers in Arizona will continue to do their very best to bring them quickly to justice.

I am outraged by this attack against this deputy and the people of Arizona that he is sworn to protect.
Although there is no confirmation at this time that the criminals involved in this evening’s violence are drug smugglers, this incident occurred in a known drug trafficking corridor, and law enforcement believes that the five suspects being sought were walking through the middle of the desert with backpacks and at least one automatic weapon. Border Patrol agents are deeply involved in this search.
As we have seen in the past, drug smugglers and cartel members invading our state are not innocent fathers and mothers longing for a better life for their family. Regardless of the outcome of tonight’s manhunt and investigation, Arizona is now confronted by some of the most vicious and dangerous narco-terror organizations the world has seen. Their cause is not honest labor in desperate need of sustenance; it is murder, terror and mayhem in furtherance of a multi-billion dollar criminal enterprise.
The horrendous violence we see by narco-terrorists is uncontrolled, and our own federal government refuses to fulfill its responsibility to secure our border.

Pelosi Says it Will Take "Presidential Leadership" to Move Immigration Reform


Nancy Pelosi saying, "If there is going to be any movement in this regard, it will require presidential leadership."

She also said it would take an "appetite," to move the legislation through Congress. After using the word "appetite," she asked, "Is that the word you use? Is that the word, appetite?"

Mark Levin Caller: Man That Said He Was On Oil Rig Explosion was NOT Terrorism

Mark Levin has posted that audio from the caller, labeled “Part 1 of Mark’s interview” on his website. This video above is part 2.

LINK for Levins page


Wild Thing's comment......

It is very sad. The world will wring its hands over oily birds, but the men lost are not mentioned

Eleven men were missing presumed dead after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded last week.

Dale Burkeen, 37, was a crane operator on the platform and was trained to lower crew members to boats in an emergency.
He had returned to the rig from Neshoba, near Philadelphia, about a week before the explosion. He and wife, Rhonda, have two children, Aryn, 14 and Timothy, 6.

Donald Clark, 49, of Newellton, Louisiana, was expected to leave the rig the day after the explosion for a three-week break. He was an assistant driller.

Roy Wyatt Kemp, 27, has two children, Kaylee, 3, and 3-month-old Maddison, with his wife, Courtney.
He loved fishing and the outdoors and attended a Baptist church in Jonesville, Louisiana, where a memorial service for him will be held today.

Jason Anderson, was a father of two from Bay City, Texas.

Stephen Curtis was an assistant driller on the rig from Georgetown, Louisiana.

Gordon Jones, 28, of Louisiana, was expecting to become a father to a second son with his wife, Michelle.

Karl Kleppinger, 38, of Natchez, Mississippi was a Desert Storm veteran who spent more than ten years working on oil rigs. He was a floorman who made about $75,000 a year working off the Louisiana coast.

Blair Manuel, 56, resident of Gonzales, Louisiana, was a chemical engineer on the rig.

Dewey Revette, 48, from State Line, Mississippi, was a father who had worked for the company as an oil driller for 29 years.

Shane Roshto, 22, was from Franklin County, Mississippi. His family were named on law suits filed by Louisiana’s fisheries industry, accusing BP and Transocean, the rig operator, of negligence.

Adam Weise, 24, of Yorktown, Texas, came straight from high School to work on the rig in 2005. He loved to hunt and fish and play football. He was the youngest of four children.

Buddies, Hometowns Honor Last Two Marines Killed in Vietnam War

Cpl. Charles McMahon, left, and Lance Cpl. Darwin L. Judge were the last Marines killed in the Vietnam War


South Vietnamese soldiers run across the tarmac during an attack April 30, 1975, at Saigon's Tan Son Nhut Airport.

Buddies, hometowns honor last two Marines killed in Vietnam War


A blue-eyed Eagle Scout from Iowa and an athletic daredevil from Massachusetts hold a place in history that no one wanted for them.

On April 29, 1975, Lance Cpl. Darwin L. Judge, 19, and Cpl. Charles McMahon, 21, became the last Americans killed in action in the Vietnam War.

After the U.S. withdrawal in 1973, about the only Americans left in South Vietnam were a few dozen Marines assigned to guard the U.S. Embassy in Saigon and four consulate offices in other cities.

As North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces pressed in on the South Vietnamese capital in April 1975, McMahon and Judge were sent to the air base at Tan Son Nhut Airport to help with the evacuation of U.S. diplomats.

"They had only been in country for about seven days," said John Ghilain, who was a member of the Marine Security Guard Battalion with Judge and McMahon. Their commanders had sent them to the air base thinking it would be safer for the new arrivals.

"It was just a harsh reality that when everything went south, that's where they were," said Ghilain, 55, of Medford, Massachusetts.

About 4 a.m., an enemy rocket scored a direct hit on the checkpoint Judge and McMahon were manning, killing both instantly, said Ken Crouse, 55, of Folsom, California, who also served with them.

Judge had graduated from boot camp at the top of his class and probably was assigned embassy duty as a reward, said Crouse, who had trained with him for guard duty in Arlington, Virginia, outside Washington.

"That's not the type of duty that most people would end up with on their first tour out of boot camp," he said.

By all accounts, Judge was an outstanding young citizen of Marshalltown, Iowa, even before he joined the Marine Corps. He played guitar in his youth group at Hope United Methodist Church and carried groceries for customers at Clifton's grocery, said his older sister, Lori Desaulniers of Marshalltown.

He played second base for his Little League team and helped his brother Loren with his paper route before getting his own. Darwin and his friends rode dirt bikes, and he often rode out to the countryside to help farmers load hay. He was a gifted woodworker, Desaulniers said; his last project, a grandfather clock, keeps time to this day in the home of his 85-year-old mother, Ida.

He was cute, too.

Last to die?
Marine Cpl. Charles McMahon and Lance Cpl. Darwin Judge are generally believed to be the last U.S. military personnel killed in action on the ground in the Vietnam War. However, some would argue that others are more accurately described as the last Americans killed in the conflict.

• Capt. William C. Nystul and 1st Lt. Michael J. Shea perished when their helicopter crashed during a search-and-rescue mission from the aircraft carrier USS Hancock about 18 hours after McMahon and Judge were killed. Their bodies were never recovered.

• Two weeks after the war ended, a U.S. merchant ship, the Mayaguez, was captured by Cambodia's new Khmer Rouge regime. Although the crew had already been released, 41 U.S. Marines, sailors and airmen were killed during the rescue operation.

• Numerous U.S. service members have died since the war of injuries and ailments sustained during the conflict.

"Gorgeous, gorgeous blue eyes. Long eyelashes of which I was very envious," his sister said. "His baby face was so incongruent with the military uniform."

Marshalltown is the kind of wholesome place that could produce a boy like that, said Crouse, who visits the town annually to present a $1,000 scholarship in Judge's honor.

"He was an Eagle Scout in Marshalltown and grew up just a real active, positive, vibrant member of the community," Crouse said. "Everyone that I speak with is always, 'Oh, Darwin did this for me. Darwin did that for me.' His mother still flies the flag on the flagpole that he built as an Eagle Scout project. Marshalltown is purely the heartland of America ... and I think that a lot of those qualities and a lot of that character really exemplified itself in the Marine that I met in Washington and later showed up in Saigon."

Charles "Charlie" McMahon of Woburn, Massachusetts, was a fun-loving Pied Piper who attracted followers effortlessly, said George Holland, his best friend from the age of 10.

The two boys met at the Woburn Boys Club, where they swam in the pool and played games. Together they became lifeguards and then swimming directors at the club, and McMahon was named president of its community service group, Holland said.

"To give a speech or something on that end, not his cup of tea," Holland said. "He led by example. He was president of our Keystone Club there at the club. He definitely had leadership ability. People just gravitated toward him: If Charlie was doing it, everybody wanted to do it."

He had a bit of a wild streak, too, Holland said. The boys spent summers at Massachusetts' Hampton Beach, where they got jobs as lifeguards.

"He would express himself through activity, like jumping off the Hampton Beach bridge during Labor Day traffic -- you got cars backing up bumper to bumper. ... You're going out with Charlie, you know you're going to have a blast."

McMahon's initial plan was to join the Marine Corps, train as a military police officer and then come out and become a state police officer, said Holland, 56, a heavy-equipment operator in Woburn. But after some time in the service, the military started to look more like a career.

"He loved the Marines as much as anybody I ever saw in the Marines," said Holland, who served in the Corps for four years. "Hard to say, but I think he would have stayed in the Marines a long time."

It's been a long time since those Marines fought their way out of Saigon, but in the spirit of Semper Fi, they never forget.

The survivors formed the Fall of Saigon Marines Association to keep McMahon and Judge's memories alive. The association, with 65 surviving members, awards $1,000 scholarships each spring to an Eagle Scout in Marshalltown and to the "Top Boy" and "Top Girl" at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn.

"They're a great group of guys," said Desaulniers, Judge's sister. "Several of them send Christmas cards to my mother, which she really appreciates. She calls them her boys."

On Saturday morning, Desaulniers and about 40 members of that exclusive club will gather at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington to remember.

When the group first went to Marshalltown in 2000, Desaulniers questioned their motives, Ghilain said.

"I looked at her, and I said, 'There's nothing in this for us. ... Nobody's making a thing off of this. But what you will see is that something good is going to come out of this.' "


Wild Thing's comment.........

We will never ever forget the warriors that have served our country and given so much and so many that will always be missed.

This story above is from HERE, a link at Facebook about our Marines........ and I also wanted to share about this. Marine Week is coming to Boston May 3 - 9, 2010. The week-long event will honor and recognize the contributions of Marines with air-ground demos, Marine band performances, sports clinics and much more.

Troops in Afghanistan Perform 'Telephone'

This video remake of Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video was reportedly filmed at a FOB in Farah Province, Afghanistan by Army troops assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division. According to The Smoking Gun, the video was choreographed by Aaron Melcher, a 24-year-old married soldier from North Carolina.

LOL this was a lot of work they put into this. They should force the Taliban to watch this. Remember how the terrorists complained when they had to listen to Barney the children's show etc. over and over again. hahaha
