Dem Rep. Anthony Weiner Rants Against Republicans on House Floor and Responses

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) On the 9/11 Health and Compensation Act

New York Rep. Anthony Weiner delivering a screaming rant on the House Floor as he attacked Republicans for questioning why the Democrats in control of the House insisted on a two-thirds vote to pass a bill setting up a long-term compensation fund for September 11 Emergency responders


GOP Rep. Bob Goodlatte Responds to Weiner Rant

It seems easy to say, of course, everyone should support the extension of such a long-term fund, but listen to the GOP’s Rep. Bob Goodlatte explaining why many Republicans opposed it. He points out that no such fund has been created for Katrina victims, members of the military injured or for the families of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, victims of the first World Trade Center bombing, victims of the USS Cole terrorist attack, or victims of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Goodlatte and many Republicans opposed the bill on the principle that the creation of special compensation funds is not the way to help the victims.


Rush explains why Weiner is trying to smear Peter King and Republicans

"The point is they know they are gonna lose their majority"

RUSH: "Anthony Weiner and his sponsors could not get enough Democrats"..."The fact is a bunch of Democrats defected on this and Weiner is out there ripping into the Republicans for having the thing fail"

Rush Limbaugh today shedding more light on what happened on the House Floor last night when Democrat Anthony Weiner went ballistic against Republicans.

Rush explained that Democrats had attached an Immigration measure to the bill providing a long-term compensation fund for 9/11 emergency responders, believing Republicans would have no choice but to support the underlying bill and thereby also passing their immigration attachment.

But it did not work. Not only did most Republicans refuse to be intimidated, some Democrats also defected and would not support the bill, which was not brought up under regular order, which would only require a simple majority vote.

Limbaugh said the important thing to note here is “the crackup” of Weiner and the Democrats. Weiner’s rant shows they know their control is slipping away. The way Weiner screamed at GOP Rep. Peter King to “sit down” shows they know they are losing their grip on power.

November 2 is coming.


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

The Democrats thought some House RINOs would cross over and give them cover, and when they didn’t, they got pissed. They’re frustrated because the jig is up. Republicans get shut out of the debate but then are expected to carry the Dem’s water.

Weiner's last name sure fits him.

It’s getting out that the dems attached a bunch of CRAP to this bill and THAT’S why the republicans voted it down. The repubs were ALL FOR aid to the first responders....the dems just wouldn’t pare it down to that, so, IMHO, it makes the dems look like THEY don’t care about our firefighters, cops and rescue workers. (and, they don’t).

Gibbs Takes on Rush Limbaugh ~ Gibbs=O, ElRushbo = WINS

Gibbs Takes on Rush Limbaugh

Wall Street Journal

At a briefing today to discuss the administration’s efforts to rescue the auto industry, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs took on conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh—and every other critic “sitting in the cheap seats” –for criticizing the rescue of General Motors and Chrysler as a “government takeover” that smacks of socialism.


Told by a reporter that “You had Rush Limbaugh today — today or yesterday — talking Obama Motors again,” Gibbs, who doesn’t often provide free advertising by taking on his critics by name from the podium, let fire.

“Look, Rush Limbaugh and others wanted to walk away. Rush Limbaugh and others saw a million people that worked at these factories, that worked at these parts suppliers, that had — that supported communities, and thought we should all just walk away. The president didn’t think that walking away from a million jobs in these communities made a lot of economic sense,” Gibbs said.

He was just getting up to speed.

“We’ve got auto companies that for the first time since 2004 all showed an operating profit in the first quarter of this year. It’s adding jobs. And the money that this administration invested — about $60 billion — we believe we’re on the path to recouping all of that. That’s a significant story.
“I’ll let those that sat in the cheap seats a year-and-a-half ago and wanted to walk away” from a milion workers, he continued, “explain to every one of those workers why they made that decision.”
Finally, he wrapped it up: “And then you should ask Mr. Limbaugh — I don’t know what kind of car he drives, but I bet it’s not an F-150.”

The F-150 truck, we should note, is made by Ford, which didn’t get federal rescue funds.


Let's see what ElRuibo has to say................

Robert Gibbs Swerves Into Your Beloved Host and Gets Totaled

( SNIPETS ) taken from Rush's website at this page

RUSH: The White House press secretary, a sock puppet for the president of the United States, Robert Gibbs, swerved into Rush Limbaugh and the mighty EIB Network yesterday afternoon, and Gibbs ended up totaled.

RUSH: You would think these people would learn. You would think that they would figure it out. Gibbs launched into me.

RUSH: We got Obama as a CEO of Obama Motors, he's gonna go in and drive the Obama Volt today, gonna go speak at Chrysler, and, folks, it's amazing. I live rent free in their heads.

Yesterday afternoon a reporter said, "What do you say, Robert or any of you, to the folks who at the beginning, a year and a half ago, were deriding this effort taking over GM, calling it socialism, calling it a government takeover, you had Rush Limbaugh today talking Obama Motors again. Is essentially the message here a sort of, 'We told you so'?"

This bailout, $68 billion and we have 55,000 jobs. All this was a bailout of the unions, pure and simple.

We have a command-and-control, dictator, authoritarian-type regime manufacturing, dictating that cars be made that nobody wants. Go rent the movie, if you haven't done so on my suggestion yet, Lives of Others. It's a foreign language film that won the foreign language Oscar a couple or three years ago. It's about the Stasi, the secret police in East Germany back in the Cold War days. Go get it this weekend and watch it. It's scary as hell. It's eye-opening as hell.

So you want to buy a Volt, you go right ahead. I am not trying to discourage sales of the product. I'm not trying to be harmful at all, except to this administration. I am trying to expose this administration for what it is and who they are. Now, Obama's out there touting all these jobs created. How about all the jobs he destroyed with his indiscriminate or -- wrong word, with his -- purposeful shutting down of dealerships? Have we forgotten this? You want to talk about jobs? Yeah, he propped up a bunch of union jobs because he owed them. He propped up union health care and pension plans with the bailout. Then he got his fingers in there and demanded they finally bring this electric car to market.

He put people in charge of it that had never been in the auto business before. Steve Forbes has a piece today . You know, Obama's out there claiming credit for all this, but really Steve Forbes (writing in Politico, by the way) says the real heroes at General Motors are the free market capitalists who are making the company go in spite of the obstacles but in front of them by this guy and his regime. I applaud that. (clapping) Right on, right on, right on. Now, he's also outta talking about Cash for Clunkers. He's praising Cash for Clunkers. Everybody knows that was a disaster. That didn't generate any new sales. All it did was shift sales into a quarter earlier than the sales would have taken place. This guy's out there touting success and the only way, the only opportunity, the opportunity times he sees success is when the government is involved giving a tax credit or a discount.

Fifty-five thousand jobs created, $60 billion bailout. Can I go through again what this has cost? It's a $60 billion bailout, $240 million in Energy Department grants doled out to General Motors last summer, $150 million in federal money to the Korean battery supplier, $1.5 billion in tax breaks for you who buy the car, and some significant portion of the $14 billion loan that GM got in 2008 for retooling its plants. If you add all that together you get some idea of how much you have already spent to build every one of these cars. The whole point of this is to make the bailout work. The whole point of this is so Obama can claim credit. The whole point of this is creating an illusion that the government saved something that capitalism broke. The government saved something that the evil, mean American capitalist system destroyed.

That's the message. That's why go to Detroit today, that's why talk about General Motors and Chrysler. "Look what we did! Capitalism destroyed these companies. They were evil, they were ripping people off, they weren't treating their union employees well." No, no, no. They were saddled with all kinds of CAFE, mileage standards, regulations. They were forced into making cars because the environmentalist wacko amusement had taken control of the Department of Energy and all the regulatory agencies. Let me read to you something else here from the New York Times. Edward Niedermeyer, "GM's Electric Lemon -- and this is why Gibbs has to run out and swerve into me rather than deal with the specific criticism I offered about the Volt.

RUSH: Okay, now, Mr. Gibbs, let me explain something to you, and in the process, all the rest of you who are listening. Mr. Gibbs, you, your president, your party, have destroyed millions of jobs. You sit here and talk about protecting, saving, keeping a million jobs, you're not fooling anybody. You and your president and your party, the Democrats, have impoverished millions of families. You have destroyed home ownership for hundreds of thousands of families. You have destroyed small businesses throughout this country. Your tax and spending and regulatory policies have driven parts of this nation into Third World status. You have taken a recession and you have made it worse. You haven't saved or created a damn thing except for more government jobs. The real prosperity in this country right now is Washington and surrounding environs. As for the automobile industry, I'll say this again, no industry can survive forever with endless subsidies, massive subsidies paid for by the taxpayers in an economy where those same taxpayers are losing their jobs and homes and savings. And we brag about this?

People have lost their jobs, their homes, and their savings. And you're taking future earnings from them and bailing out industries. The saddest thing of all for General Motors, Obama Motors, is that they are pinning all of their hopes on the Volt, a car that requires a $7500 tax credit to even interest people. Look at all of the great cars that General Motors has made in its storied history, all the great cars it still makes, and they've been forced by the government into counting on the Volt, an electric car that has been a dream and a myth for 100 years. If you don't believe me I'll read to you from the New York Times from 1911 in just a moment about the electric car. They were having wet dreams about it back then at the New York Times. This makes me sad to listen to these stumped-up press conferences and town meetings touting all this great success when none of it is taking place. I do not know how in good conscience you expect the automobile industry to survive when the very people who are paying for it are losing their jobs, small businesses, savings, and homes.

Mr. Gibbs, if government ownership and subsidies were the answer, then Zimbabwe would not be a Third World country. Cuba would be teaching us how to do things. The Soviet Union would not have failed. North Korea would be the place everybody in the world wanted to go if command-and-control economies, government ownership and subsidies created a workers' paradise. The old Soviet Union would still be in existence, Mr. Gibbs, if you were right, but you aren't. General Motors makes great cars. We drove the Crossover SUV, a bunch of these cars.

Even the Malibu we had a great time driving here. They make a lot of great cars. These models were on the drawing board long before you, Mr. Gibbs, became a spokesman for Obama. The problem is insuring the long-term sustainability of the automobile industry and your answer is to destroy bondholders. The legitimate investors in Chrysler got the shaft and were called greedy. When it came time to bail somebody out, when the government was gonna bail out Chrysler, the legitimate investors got the shaft, the bondholders, and they were told they were greedy, and who got the money? The United Auto Workers. And who got the seats on the board of directors? You! And the board of directors has members of the United Auto Workers on it. Average investors, the bondholders. Then you go out there and you destroy bankruptcy laws to reward your political allies.

To pin the hopes of this great company on a car that's having to be forced on people is just very sad. Mr. Gibbs, I don't believe you people care about, when you get right down to it, the car workers. You care about union leaders.

Mr. Gibbs, your entire economic model is unworkable. Look at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I mean your economic model's been tried. Every Western socialist democracy, Cuba, Soviet Union, North Korea, wherever you look, Zimbabwe, take your pick, it's been tried. It doesn't work. You use, Mr. Gibbs, your podium at the White House every day to spread lies, to spin, to twist, creating all these phony measures of progress, creating or saving jobs because you failed, so you have to resort to these magic tricks.

There's no compassion in this agenda. There's no compassion in these results. This regime, folks, does not believe in you, and that's the saddest thing. This is the first presidency, the first administration maybe in history, maybe in my lifetime, that does not believe in the American people, does not believe in America. It believes this country is the problem in the world; that we're not the solution. We're no longer going to be the leader of anything. We have people happily presiding over the decline of the United States. You don't believe in the American worker, you don't believe in the American dream, you believe in big government, an ever-expanding, all powerful government. That's what Gibbs and Obama and Pelosi and Reid, et al, believe. And that's how your president is going to be remembered, just how Herbert Hoover is remembered. We live in Obamaville.

Mr. Gibbs, we all pay your salary, all of us taxpayers. And you show no respect. You have nicer things to say about our enemies than you have to say about Americans. You sue one of your own states, a state trying to protect its people. Your job, you sue the state. You declared war against the people. You're governing against the will of your own people and in the midst of all this you run around and continue to insult all of us. One other thing. Whatever I drive, Gibbs, I pay for. The dirty little secret, Mr. Gibbs, I've earned it. Everything I drive, whatever I have, I pay for it. I don't ever ask anybody for a penny, Mr. Gibbs, and I never make the assumption that anybody owes me one, unless I'm providing a service for them. I don't ask anybody for a dime. I have no expectation that anybody else is responsible for me, certainly not you. The day will never come I want to turn over my necessities in life to people like you and Barack Obama.

You people in the White House have earned nothing. You produce nothing. The food that you're eating at the White House mess is paid for by us, or even if you go out and grab a burger at Obama's favorite burger joint, the odds are you're paying for it with money that we've paid you. We pay for the food you eat, transportation, the jets your boss uses. There's never any gratitude. There's just more insults. There's never any thanks or appreciation for what the people of this country have done for the ruling class. There's just more contempt and insults to our intelligence.

Rush lives rent-free in their heads.

You will rue the day, Gibbsy! Bwahh! They haven’t learned yet to ignore Maha Rushdie. It’s a fight you’ll never win.

"we believe we’re on the path to recouping all of that"

YOU LIE Gibbs....Biden just said your (we) are going to lose $24 billion......and just like the Fanny and Freddie scam, your administration is not doing a thing to correct what caused the problem in the first place

For the last time, Ford didn’t receive any bailout monies, Gibbs, you asshat! Geez...this admin can't even get their bailouts straight. LOL Either incredibly stupid or incredibly desperate. He simultaneously legitimizes Limbaugh and reduces the White House. heh heh Go get ‘em ElRushbo! This is sort of like bringing a marshmallow gun to a fight when the other guy has an AK-47.

This is an occasion for example why Rushbo graces the idiot liberals with one half his brain tied behind his back. Tah dah!

Good luck, Gibbs.

This is unconscionable. How many administrations in the past publicly confronted a private citizen for his views? This government makes me sick.

I thank God every day that there is a Rush LImbaugh and that each one of you that come to this blog and give your input and comments are in my life. You all add so much and it means everything. YOU all make a difference!!

This is the movie iRush was talking about I looked it up ...... " The Lives of Others"

Pelosi Blocks Oil Spill Investigation~ Like I Said LOOK Into Obama and Enviros!

Pelosi Blocks Oil Spill Investigation

Human Events

The latest version of the CLEAR Act is slated for a floor vote in the House this week as Democrats look for ways to use the Gulf oil spill as a means to pass elements of their unpopular energy agenda.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stripped out authorization for an independent investigation into the Gulf disaster.

The Natural Resources Committee unanimously passed the amendment in committee markup July 14 offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would establish a bipartisan, independent, National Commission on Outer Continental Shelf Oil Spill Prevention.

Unlike the commission set up by President Obama -- packed only with environmental activists and no petroleum engineers -- the commission unanimously approved by the Natural Resources committee would be comprised of technical experts to study the actual events leading up to the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Not a single member of the committee voiced opposition at the bill’s markup. The Senate has also approved an independent commission.

“To investigate what went wrong and keep it from happening again, the commission must include members who have expertise in petroleum engineering. The President’s Commission has none,” Cassidy, the amendment’s author, told HUMAN EVENTS after the announcement. “It defies common sense that this amendment passed unanimously in committee, only to be deleted in the Speaker’s office.”

Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.), top Republican on the Natural Resources Committee said the Obama’s administration’s commission was set up to protect the President.

“By deleting the bipartisan, independent oil spill commission that’s received bipartisan support in both House and Senate committees, Democrats have shown they are more interested in protecting the President than getting independent answers to what caused this tragic Gulf spill. Some of the biggest failures that contributed to the Gulf disaster are the direct responsibility of the federal government and by deleting this bipartisan, independent commission, Democrats ensure that only the President’s hand-picked commission will be digging into any failures of his own Interior Department appointees. There is widespread agreement that no member of the President’s commission possesses technical expertise in oil drilling, and several are on the record in opposition to offshore drilling and support a moratorium that will cost thousands of jobs,” Hastings said.

The bill also sets up myriad regulations and new standards and laws for drilling that have nothing to do with offshore drilling.

“Even more outrageous is this bill’s attempt to use the oil spill tragedy as leverage to enact totally unrelated policies and increase federal spending on unrelated programs by billions of dollars. What does a solar panel in Nevada, a wind turbine in Montana, uranium for nuclear power, or a ban on fish farming have to do with the Gulf spill? Nothing -- but the spill is a good excuse to try and pass otherwise stalled or unpopular new laws,” Hastings said.

Another member of the committee, Rep. John Fleming (R-La.), pointed out the hand-picked Obama commission is just getting underway with no findings or recommendations made.

“This ‘fix it’ bill is being rammed through without an accurate and full understanding of what actually went wrong. The Presidential Commission is just barely beginning its work, no investigations are yet concluded, and the failed [blowout preventer] still on the ocean floor, yet we are voting on a bill without knowing what went wrong,” Fleming said.
“Furthermore, at a time when Washington should be focused on creating jobs, this bill will do just the opposite by hampering future energy development and stifling job creation along the Gulf Coast,” Fleming added. “This knee-jerk legislation -- coupled with the Administration’s damaging Moratorium on offshore drilling -- will worsen, not help, the situation.”

Yet the House is poised to vote this week on the CLEAR Act, likely Friday.

“This bill has less to do with preventing another spill than it does preventing domestic energy production,” Cassidy said.

UPDATE: House Republicans released bullets on the CLEAR Act this morning breaking down some of the measures included in the bill, including:

- Imposes job-killing changes and higher taxes for onshore natural gas and oil production. It fundamentally changes leasing onshore by the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, which affects not just leasing for natural gas and oil, but also for renewable energy including wind and solar. Forest Service and BLM leasing are shoved into the three new agencies that are replacing the former Minerals Management Service (MMS).

- Creates over $30 billion in new mandatory spending for two programs that have nothing to do with the oil spill (the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the Historic Preservation Fund). In the version of the bill headed to the House floor, Democrats added brand new language that expressly allows this $30 billion to be earmarked by the Appropriations Committee.

- Raises taxes by over $22 billion in ten years – with the taxes eventually climbing to nearly $3 billion per year. This is a direct tax on natural gas and oil that will raise energy prices for American families and businesses, hurt domestic jobs, and increase our dependence on foreign oil. This tax only applies to U.S. oil and gas production on federal leases – giving an advantage to foreign oil and hurting American energy jobs.

- Requires the federal takeover of state authority to permit in state waters, which reverses sixty years of precedent. The mismanagement, corruption and oversight failures of the federal government are being used as justification to expand federal control by seizing management from the states.

- Allows 10% of all offshore revenues – an amount possibly as high as $500 million per year – to be spent on a new fund controlled by the Interior Secretary to issue ocean research grants (ORCA fund). There is no requirement that the fund is used for the Gulf region or anything related to oil spills or offshore drilling. These funds can be earmarked.


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

Just like the rest of their agenda to destroy our country.

There is NO way I will believe that Obama is innocent on this oil spill. No way. Three weeks before it happned he made his statement about drilling for oil and that he would permit at least looking in to doing more of it.

March 30, 2010
President Obama Launches Plans to Allow Offshore Oil Exploration and Drilling Along the Eastern Seaboard

Then the oil spill happened. We all know how the enviros hate drilling for oil and how they have a histroy of violent acts and destroying things to keep things from happening. Heck even people have lost their lives in fires etc. at the hands of something enviro groups have done.

This is a prime example of liberals and the wicked witch of the west takeing advantage of a crisis in order to force an agenda. Solving the problem or preventing another disaster is not important. What's ruining the Gulf Coasts economy got to do with the bigger goal of Socializing America. What's killing a whole industry and tens of thousands of jobs got to do with the "Grand Plan". To make an omelet you have to break a few eggs. Ask Russa or China. Hey, the ends justify the means. That's how these communists think.

Mexico: Prison Guards In Durango Let Killers Out, Lent Guns

Mexico: Prison guards in Durango let killers out, lent guns

El Paso Times


Guards and officials at a prison in northern Mexico allegedly let inmates out, lent them guns and sent them off in official vehicles to carry out drug-related killings, including the massacre of 17 people last week, prosecutors said Sunday.

After carrying out the killings the inmates would return to their cells, the Attorney General's Office said in a revelation that was shocking even for a country wearied by years of drug violence and corruption.

"According to witnesses, the inmates were allowed to leave with authorization of the prison director ... to carry out instructions for revenge attacks using official vehicles and using guards' weapons for executions," office spokesman Ricardo Najera said at a news conference.

The director of the prison in Gomez Palacio in Durango state and three other officials were placed under a form of house arrest pending further investigation. No charges have yet been filed.

Prosecutors said the prison-based hit squad is suspected in three mass shootings, including the July 18 attack on a party in the city of Torreon, which is near Gomez Palacio. In that incident, gunmen fired indiscriminately into a crowd of mainly young people in a rented hall, killing 17 people, including women.

Police found more than 120 bullet casings at the scene, and Najera said tests matched those casings to four assault rifles assigned to guards at the prison.

Similar ballistics tests linked the guns to earlier killings at two bars in Torreon, the capital of northern Coahuila state, he said. At least 16 people were killed in those attacks on Feb. 1 and May 15, local media reported.
Najera blamed the killings on disputes between rival drug cartels. "Unfortunately, the criminals also carried out cowardly killings of innocent civilians, only to return to their cells," he said.

Coahuila and neighboring Durango are among several northern states that have seen a spike in drug-related violence that authorities attribute to a fight between the Gulf cartel and its former enforcers, known as the Zetas.

Mexico has long had a problem with investigating crimes, catching criminals and convicting people. Reports estimate less than 2 percent of crimes in Mexico result in prison sentences. But Sunday's revelation suggests that even putting cartel gunmen in prison may not prevent them from continuing to commit crimes.

Interior Secretary Francisco Blake said the revelation "can only be seen as a wake-up call for authorities to address, once again, the state of deterioration in many local law enforcement institutions ... we cannot allow this kind of thing to happen again."

Also Sunday, Mexican federal police announced the arrest of an alleged leading member of a drug gang blamed in recent killings and a car-bombing in the violence-ridden border city of Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas.

Police described Luis Vazquez Barragan, 39, as a top member of La Linea gang, the enforcement arm of the Juarez cartel, saying he received orders directly from cartel boss Vicente Carrillo Fuentes.

Vazquez Barragan allegedly organized payments, moved drugs and oversaw a system of safe houses in and around Ciudad Juarez.

Police said he held the same rank as fugitive gang leader Juan Pablo Ledezma, though Vazquez Barragan is not named on reward or most-wanted lists published by the Attorney General's Office, as Ledezma is.

La Linea has been blamed for a car bomb that killed three people July 15 in Ciudad Juarez and for two separate shootings March 13 that killed a U.S. consular employee and two other people connected to the consulate.

Police did not say when they caught Vazquez Barragan, but he was allegedly in possession of about a half-kilogram (pound) of cocaine and two guns.

His arrest led to a raid on a safe house where authorities detained four suspects and freed a kidnap victim.

Also Sunday, the Attorney General's Office said soldiers on patrol in Ciudad Madero in the border state of Tamaulipas seized an arsenal of about three dozen guns, 17 grenades and thousands of bullets in a house.

Elsewhere in Tamaulipas, police and prosecutors raided a lot full of truck-pulled tankers in the border city of Reynosa and seized two loaded with oil of a type sometimes stolen from the pipelines of the state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos. Nore than a dozen other tankers and freight containers were also seized.

Mexican drug cartels have allegedly become involved in increasingly sophisticated thefts of fuel and oil from Mexico's pipelines.

In the Pacific coast state of Guerrero, authorities reported Sunday they had found the bullet-ridden bodies of six men dumped in various locations, including three in or around the resort of Acapulco. Two of the dead men were identified as people kidnapped earlier in the month.

CNN report on the same:

Mexican officials: Prison inmates released to commit killings


Top officials in Mexico said Sunday that authorities at a prison released and armed several inmates to attack a group of people during a birthday celebration last week in a killing spree that left 17 dead.

Ricardo Najera, a spokesman for Mexico’s Interior Ministry said authorities allowed a group of inmates to leave the Cereso prison in Gomez Palacio, in Mexico’s Durango state, in police vehicles to launch an attack on revelers at a farm in Torreon in the neighboring state of Coahuila.

“The delinquents were committing their executions as part of a debt-settling scheme against members of rivaling groups from organized crime,” Najera said Sunday of the July 18 attack.
“Unfortunately, in these executions, these delinquents also cowardly murdered innocent civilians,” he said, adding that the inmates returned to the prison after the attack.

Four top Cereso Gomez Palacio prison workers — including the prison’s director — were named as suspects in the investigation, Najera said.

Mexico’s interior minister, Francisco Blake, said Sunday that the Gomez Palacio prison incident sheds light on Mexico’s tenuous security and the “deteriorating state” of Mexico’s local law enforcement.

“Today, it is evident that the Mexican state is facing an enormous challenge in security,” said Blake. He asked local authorities to monitor “the presumed complicity of local authorities” with criminal elements.

According to the U.S. State Department, many of the narcotics-related attacks in Mexico have occurred in the northern border region. ( snipet )

The Bitter Fruit of ObamaCare

The Bitter Fruit of ObamaCare

Expose Obama

By Floyd Brown

Get ready for your life to change. The so-called benefits of ObamaCare don’t start until 2014, but the tax increases, misallocated resources and federal regulations start now.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously said the night of ObamCare’s passage, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it …” The emerging picture is frightening.

ObamaCare dramatically alters the already-overregulated health insurance market. The federal government will now manage your health care decisions. The law creates a maze of mandates, federal directives, price controls, tax increases and subsidies.

We all begin paying ObamaCare taxes this year. The law includes at last count at least 19 new taxes. As Americans begin to reap the personal financial burden of Obamacare, the movement to repeal it is mounting.

Individuals must pay an annual penalty of $695, or up to 2.5 percent of their annual income, if they don’t purchase an approved health insurance plan. Penalties on families include an annual penalty of $347 per child, up to $2,250 per family, if parents don’t purchase an approved policy.

Most of us have heard about the penalties on employers. Business owners must buy a government -approved health plan or pay a penalty of $2,000 per employee if they have 50 employees or more.

Investors get whacked hard. ObamaCare imposes a 3.8 percent tax on investment income for individuals making $200,000 or more and on families making $250,000 or more. The investment tax is not indexed for inflation, so as time passes more people will be expected to pay. Seniors on fixed incomes and pensioners with IRAs and 401(k) plans will be hit hard.

The so-called "Tax on ‘Cadillac’ health plans" imposes a 40 percent tax on health care plans valued at $10,200 for individuals and $27,500 for families.

Medicare taxes are climbing up, too. The bill requires single people earning $200,000 or more and couples earning $250,000 or more to pay an additional 0.9 percent in Medicare taxes.

Thinking about downsizing or buying a new home? There are new taxes on home sales tacked on the bill. ObamaCare imposes a 3.8 percent tax on home sales and other real estate transactions. Almost every homeowner qualifies as “rich” for one day, the day they sell their house.

Taxes on medical devices will also be going up to 2.9 percent under ObamaCare.

And we can’t forget the new 10 percent tax on tanning.

ObamaCare empowers the IRS for enforcement. The IRS is hiring 16,500 new enforcement officials. The IRS will confiscate tax refunds, place liens on property and seek jail time if healthcare penalties and taxes are not paid.

But don’t despair. As of July 14,130 members of Congress have signed a discharge petition that will force Nancy Pelosi to hold a straight up-or-down vote on HR 4972, a bill, proposed by Congressman Steve King, that repeals ObamaCare

In plain language, that means that the repeal of ObamaCare is actually within our grasp. Congressman King is upbeat, saying: "I am optimistic that we will be able to attract the 218 signatures we will need to force a vote on repealing ObamaCare. … Signatures on the discharge petition have come more quickly than I had expected."

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

The American people will rise up in righteous anger over these monstrosities. A total revolution on 2 November! Failing that...a total revolution!

Everything conneceted with the Obama administration is corrupted.

Statement by Gov. Brewer Regarding SB1070 ~ Judge Blocks State From Enforcing Federal Law! sheesh!

Gov. Brewer on Hannity regarding the Immigration Law Ruling ...EXCELLENT interview.

Sourse: Gov. Brewer Facebook page

Governor Jan Brewer ........"Unfortunately for America and Arizona today, the feds got temporary relief to not do their job. I am disappointed by Judge Susan Bolton’s ruling enjoining several provisions of SB1070; though I am heartened by some findings – including the ban on sanctuary cities. This fight is far from over. In fact, it is just the beginning, and at the end of what is certain to be a long legal struggle, Arizona will prevail in its right to protect our citizens. I am deeply grateful for the overwhelmingly support we have received from across our nation in our efforts to defend against the failures of the federal government."

And this statement as well :

July 28, 2010

“This fight is far from over. In fact, it is just the beginning, and at the end of what is certain to be a long legal struggle, Arizona will prevail in its right to protect our citizens. I am deeply grateful for the overwhelmingly support we have received from across our nation in our efforts to defend against the failures of the federal government.

“I have consulted with my legal counsel about our next steps. We will take a close look at every single element Judge Bolton removed from the law, and we will soon file an expedited appeal at the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
“For anyone willing to see it -- the crisis is as clear as is the federal government’s failure to address it.
“The judge herself noted that the stash houses where smugglers hide immigrants from Mexico before bringing them into the country's interior have become a fixture on the news in Arizona and that, ‘You can barely go a day without a location being found in Phoenix where there are numerous people being harbored.’”
“When I signed the bill on April 23rd, I said, SB 1070 – represents another tool for our state to use as we work to address a crisis we did not create and the federal government has actively refused to fix. The law protects all of us, every Arizona citizen and everyone here in our state lawfully. And, it does so while ensuring that the constitutional rights of ALL in Arizona are undiminished – holding fast to the diversity that has made Arizona so great.
“I will battle all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary, for the right to protect the citizens of Arizona. Meanwhile, I also know we still have work to do in confronting the fear-mongers, those dealing in hate and lies and economic boycotts that seek to do Arizona harm.
“We have already made some progress in waking up Washington. But the question still remains: will Washington do its job, and put an end to the daily operations of smugglers in our nation, or will the delays and sidesteps continue? I believe that the defenders of the rule of law will ultimately succeed with us in our demand for action.”


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

Our country lost, Arizona lost, the America people who believe in the Rule of Law lost. The Judge is another Leftist cut from the same cloth as Janet Napolitano. America defeated by a cabal of hate filled Leftists, bent on the destruction of the country they grew up in.

So now we have judges blocking states from enforcing federal law.

Anger, does not even come close to how I feel.......... It is beyond anger......and that anger is directed at Obama for demanding this to happen and this judge, this so called judge.

Rangel, Ethics Panel Lawyers Talking Settlement

Remember this? LOL Rep. Charlie Rangel swears at Jason Mattera over scandal questions ~ Wild Thing

Rangel, Ethics Panel Lawyers Talking Settlement

New York Democrat Charles Rangel made a last-minute effort Tuesday to settle his ethics case and prevent a House trial that could embarrass him and damage the Democratic Party.

The talks between Rangel's lawyer and the House ethics committee's nonpartisan attorneys were confirmed by ethics Chairman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif. Lofgren said she is not involved in the talks, and added that the committee's lawmakers have always accepted the professional staff's recommendations in previous plea bargains.

Rangel, a 40-year House veteran who is 80 years old, would have to admit to multiple, substantial ethics violations for any plea bargain to be accepted. Earlier negotiations broke down when Rangel would only admit to some allegations — not enough to satisfy the committee lawyers, according to people familiar with those talks who were not authorized to be quoted by name.

If the talks are not successful, trial proceedings for the Harlem congressman would begin Thursday with a reading of alleged ethics violations that are still confidential.

An equally divided, eight-member subcommittee led by Lofgren would then conduct the actual trial later and decide whether the charges are proved by clear and convincing evidence.

The members are separate from the four-member investigative panel that charged Rangel, the former Ways and Means Committee chairman, with multiple violations connected to his fundraising, financial disclosure and failure to pay taxes on income from a resort unit.

If the case ends with either a plea bargain or a finding of guilt, the ethics committee would make a decision on punishment that could range from a critical report, to a censure by the House or an expulsion vote.

In previous cases, the only matter to go through a trial was the case of former Rep. Jim Traficant of Ohio, who was expelled by a 420-1 vote in 2002. He went to prison after his conviction for racketeering and bribery.

Some Democrats have called for Rangel to resign. Others have returned money he raised for them. Many Democrats are worried that they'll be responding to negative campaign ads about Rangel if a trial gets under way in September.

An ethics case against former Republican Rep. Mark Foley of Florida, involving his suggestive e-mails to former male pages, coincided with the 2006 campaign and was among the reasons the GOP lost control of the House.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who was not confirming any negotiations, told reporters Tuesday, "I think everybody would like to have it go away in the sense that this is not a pleasant process."

The Maryland Democrat said he didn't know what Rangel's decision would be.

"Mr. Rangel has to do what Mr. Rangel believes is appropriate and proper," he said.

Lofgren said she's been peppered with questions by lawmakers about the negotiations.

"People want to know, am I doing a deal? The answer is no," Lofgren said. "I don't know whether it's possible or not. The professional staff can arrange a settlement."

A House investigative committee last week approved multiple alleged violations against Rangel.

People familiar with charges, who were not authorized to be quoted, said they related in part, to:

Rangel's use of official stationery to raise money for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York.

His use of four rent-subsidized apartment units in New York City.

Rangel's failure to report income as required on his annual financial disclosure forms. The committee had investigated his failure to report income from the lawmaker's rental unit at the Punta Cana Yacht Club in the Dominican Republic. Rangel also belatedly disclosed between $239,000 and $831,000 in investment assets.

His failure to pay taxes on all his income from the resort unit.

A possible role in preserving a tax shelter for an oil drilling company, Nabors Industries, whose chief executive donated money to the Rangel Center while Ways and Means considered the loophole legislation.


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

It seems he’s not going to admit to much of anything but go down fighting.

Fight Charlie, fight. This all about race, Charlie. The crackers are all trying to put you in chains and make you their slave.

Fight them into next year, Charlie.... we be all behind you bro.

Yeeeeehaaaa! Drag this thing out. The longer it’s out there, the more it hurts the Dems.

They charged in 2006 that the republicans were corrupt so time to shout out the real truth!

There are no ethical people on the ethics committee...just congressmen.

Larry Grathwohl Interview About William Ayers,Obama's Mentor

Larry Grathwohl interview about William Ayers,Obama's Mentor

This video shows an interview of Larry Grathwohl who was an FBI agent assigned to investigate the Weather Underground. William Ayers is the founder of the Weather Underground. This man is speaking about William Ayers. It was in William Ayers' livingroom that Barack Obama launched his political career.

From Mark

I have been looking for this video for a long time and finally found it. In 1967 I returned from Vietnam. and that Thanksgiving I was at my Mothers. On the news was a story of a huge protest in Washington D.C. against the war . I couldn't believe there were so many people against the War, I was in total shock. The theme of the protest was to bring "Our" troops home and not one more life for the Rich Mans War. Even then I thought they were communists and said so and of course a lot of people said, Naw, your nuts just kids with nothing to do. Three months later TET started and the virtual invasion of South Vietnam.

By June of '68 when the Tet was winding down and we had kicked their ass handily there was another protest this time the Theme against the Troops, Baby Killers, Murders and all that vile crap. But you could see the connection between the communists and the students it was painfully obvious. Again I thought about what I'd first thought in November '67, communists.

Later I found out the communists were indeed working with the various groups SDS, and a smaller myriad of splinter commie groups to help them organize these protests and disrupt the War effort. Even General Giap said they wouldn't have lasted much longer had it not been for these Communist protest in America.

Recently Glenn Beck has been talking about their plan to take over the country, and he thinks the plan is the same one Ayres came up with in the very late 60's and early 70's. This Agent, infiltrated the Weathermen and that interview is recalled here.

If this is true then obama is nothing more than a useful idiot and a puppet in charge of the biggest lie this country has ever been told. At stake is our Lives, Liberty and our feeedom.


I have posted these quotes below and video before but that was back during the campaign and we need to remember this was said by Obama. ~ Wild Thing

"This president can be a transformative leader (he has that potential in my view), but only if he embraces and fights for a transformative agenda."--Sam Webb, Chairman Communist Party USA

"We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America"
--B.H.Obama, 2008


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

Thank you so much Mark !

When you put the main puzzle pieces the media ignore together it paints a scary picture. The media ignores Obama's connections with the Kenyan radical revolutionary Odinga and his participation in a socialist revolution there. They also ignore the details of Obama's connections with William Ayers and just how radical the teachings of Ayers is. They also ignore that he and Obama shared an office with for three years is as radical as they come.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA

"Barack Obama told supporters that 'change has come to America' as he claimed victory in a historic presidential election."

Awesome Rep. Paul Ryan: The Choice of Two Futures

What kind of a nation are we going to be in the 21st century?

Paul Ryan on the threat posed to our nation's exceptionalism should a growing majority of takers become dependent on an increasing minority of makers:

This would mark a transition away from the traditional American idea of an entrepreneurial economy based upon limited government and free enterprise, and a move over toward a Western European-style, cradle-to-grave social welfare state, where the majority of people are dependent on the government for their very livelihoods. This saps us of our creativity, our entrepreneurial spirit, and our prosperity. This results in slow growth, fuels greater dependence on the government, which drains people of the incentive and the will to make the most of their lives. The point I'm trying to make with this tipping point -- this choice of two futures -- is: do you want an opportunity society with a safety net -- or -- do you want to switch over to this cradle-to-grave welfare state, where he have a culture of dependency, slow growth, lower livings standards, and less prosperity? That is the choice before us.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Gosh he is soooo good. You know he reminds me of Bobby Jindal in his way of speaking. That kind of fast paced and to the point no frills ...let's get her done kind of thing. haha

Like Jindal when he was telling Obama off during the oil spill and listing his plans telling Obama to LISTEN and Do something!

Anyway, Rep. Ryan is very smart and I love how he explains things. He is articulate, very knowledgeable, and very well put together. He also seemed to have an uncanny knack for putting complex issues in simple terms for the people like myself to understand.

He also made mince meat of Obama when they had that meeting with him about Obamacare. I loved that too.

Ryan has a plan to preserve the foundations that this country was founded on, maintain our freedom, and to stop the economic free fall, stabilize, and increase the prosperity of the economic engine that has been key in making this country what it was and what it could be again.

Kagan A 'dangerous' Nominee

Key Republican calls Kagan a 'dangerous' nominee

Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan picked up more GOP backing Wednesday in her drive toward near-certain confirmation next week, even as a top Republican lashed out at her as "dangerous."

Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the senior Republican on the Judiciary Committee, warned senators in unusually dire terms against voting for President Barack Obama's choice, saying, "Be careful about it, because I'm afraid that we have a dangerous, progressive, political-type nominee."

Sessions' words of caution - he said they were primarily directed toward Democrats - came just hours after Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine became the fourth Republican to say she would break with her party to vote for Kagan, who's in line to succeed retired Justice John Paul Stevens.

Democrats already have more than enough votes to confirm her.

In a statement, Snowe said Kagan had met her standard for a justice, "with the strong intellect, respect for the rule of law, and understanding of the important but limited role of the Supreme Court that I believe is required." She said endorsements from leading lawyers, including prominent conservatives, had persuaded her that Kagan had the judicial temperament for the job.

Sessions, however, quoted Obama allies describing Kagan as someone who shares his political views, and argued she would be a liberal rubber stamp for Obama's policies.

"I don't think the American people are going to hold harmless those who vote to impose a legal progressive, activist legislator from the bench upon them," Sessions said.

Elena Kagan and her Socialist 'hero' Cass Sunstein

From David Horowitz's


When it was announced in 2008 that Cass Sunstein would be joining the Harvard Law School faculty, Kagan said:

"Cass Sunstein is the preeminent legal scholar of our time -- the most wide-ranging, the most prolific, the most cited, and the most influential. His work in any one of the fields he pursues -- administrative law and policy, constitutional law and theory, behavioral economics and law, environmental law, to name a non-exhaustive few -- would put him in the very front ranks of legal scholars; the combination is singular and breathtaking."

In the "Acknowledgments" section of her work, she specifically thanked her brother Marc, “whose involvement in radical causes led me to explore the history of American radicalism in the hope of clarifying my own political ideas.” In the body of the thesis, Kagan wrote:

"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?...
"Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America. Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight one’s fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope."


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

I agree with Sessions, Butch Kagan is dangerous to our country. Three is no way Obama would pick anyone that does not have the same agenda as he ( Obama) and his handlers have to destroy our country.

Her only function on the Court would be to advance her hard left agenda and help impose it on a nation that has already gone much too far in that direction. She will shred the Constitution wherever it gets in the way of her Marxist vision.

"Banking Queen" Rep. Barney Frank Causes Scene Demanding Discount

Rep. Barney Frank causes scene demanding discount

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank caused a scene when he demanded a $1 senior discount on his ferry fare to Fire Island's popular gay haunt, The Pines, last Friday.

Frank was turned down by ticket clerks at the dock in Sayville because he didn't have the required Suffolk County Senior Citizens ID. A witness reports, "Frank made such a drama over the senior rate that I contemplated offering him the dollar to cool down the situation." Frank made news last year when he was spotted looking uncomfortable around a bevy of topless, well-built men at the Pines Annual Ascension Beach Party.

Frank's spokesperson confirmed to Page Six that his partner, James Ready, asked the ticket office for a regular ticket for himself and a senior ticket for Frank, "but was turned down because Frank didn't have a resident ID."

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

Caused a scene when he took a ferry to the gay hotspot? You can’t make this stuff up!!

He mocks tea partiers for being upset when he and his cronies spend America into oblivion. But that’s “other people’s money”, so Bawney doesn’t see what we’re upset about.

But refuse him a one dollar discount and he throws a hissy fit (or should that be sissy fit).

If politicians got that worked-up about the correct & efficient use of tax-dollars we wouldn’t be in the financial state we are as a nation today.

Al Sharpton Responds to Rangel Investigation

Rev. Al Sharpton saying “it would be a blow to Harlem” if Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel had to resign or was removed from Congress in the face of ethics violations he must answer for in front of a House Ethics Committee on Thursday. Sharpton also said “it would be a political bloodbath” to see who replaces Rangel in representing the district should Rangel have to leave office. He said you would likely have “half of Harlem” running for the seat.

Rangel has represented Harlem for 40 years in the House of Representatives, and is now 80 years old. This report gives a good rundown on what he is alleged to have done.

The New York Daily News reported Saturday that Rangel, speaking to reporters at Harlem Hospital, brushed off the call to give up his seat.

"Well, it wouldn't be the American thing to do," he said. "I think I owe it to the process to find out first what the investigative committee finds out."

Defense Officials Identified Two Sailors who Went Missing

Defense officials identified two Sailors who went missing after a 23 July incident in Afghanistan. Petty Officer Second Class Justin McNeley died following the incident. Petty Officer Third Class Jarod Newlove is still missing.


Missing U.S. sailor's remains found in Afghanistan

The remains of one of two U.S. sailors who went missing in Afghanistan last week have been found in the east of the country, the NATO-led force said on Tuesday, and troops were still searching for the second man.

The two men, serving with the U.S. Navy, went missing on Friday after failing to return in a vehicle they had taken from their compound in Kabul, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said on Saturday.

On Sunday, the Taliban said they were holding prisoner one of the two sailors who had strayed into territory controlled by the insurgents just south of the capital, and that the other had been killed.

For the first time on Tuesday, ISAF confirmed that one of the sailors was dead.

“Afghan and coalition forces recovered the remains of a missing ISAF service member Sunday in eastern Afghanistan after an extensive search,” the alliance said in a statement.

Brewer Seeks Dismissal of Obama Challenge to Immigration Law

Governor Brewer is a national leader on illegal immigration and border security. She stood up and demanded a secure border and signed into law the toughest immigration policy in the country giving Arizona the power to do the job that the federal government refuses to do.

Brewer Seeks Dismissal of Obama Challenge to Immigration Law

FOX news

Attorneys for Gov. Jan Brewer have asked a judge to throw out the U.S. Justice Department's challenge to the state of Arizona's new immigration law.

The governor's lawyers said Monday the federal government hasn't shown it has suffered actual harm from the law and instead bases its claim on speculation.

The federal government says the state law is trumped by federal law and that it has hurt U.S. relations with Mexico. It is scheduled to take effect Thursday.

Attorneys for Brewer say Mexico's disapproval of the law doesn't make it unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton is considering requests by the Justice Department, a Phoenix police officer and civil rights groups to put the law on hold.

The federal government meanwhile is rapidly expanding a program to identify illegal immigrants using fingerprints from arrests, drawing opposition from local authorities and advocates who argue the initiative amounts to an excessive dragnet.

The program has gotten less attention than Arizona's new immigration law, but it may end up having a bigger impact because of its potential to round up and deport so many immigrants nationwide.

Under the program, the fingerprints of everyone who is booked into jail for any crime are run against FBI criminal history records and Department of Homeland Security immigration records to determine who is in the country illegally and whether they've been arrested previously. Most jurisdictions are not included in the program, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been expanding the initiative.

Since everyone arrested would be screened, the program could easily deport more people than Arizona's new law, said Sunita Patel, an attorney who filed a lawsuit in New York against the federal government on behalf of a group worried about the program. Patel said that because illegal immigrants could be referred to ICE at the point of arrest, even before a conviction, the program can create an incentive for profiling and create a pipeline to deport more people.

"It has the potential to revolutionize immigration enforcement," said Patel.

Patel filed the lawsuit on behalf of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, which is concerned the program could soon come to New York. The lawsuit seeks, among other things, statistical information about who has been deported as a result of the program and what they were arrested for.

Supporters of the program argue it is helping identify dangerous criminals that would otherwise go undetected. Since Oct. 27, 2008 through the end of May, almost 2.6 million people have been screened with Secure Communities. Of those, almost 35,000 were identified as illegal immigrants previously arrested or convicted for the most serious crimes, including murder and rape, ICE said Thursday. More than 205,000 who were identified as illegal immigrants had arrest records for less serious crimes.

Continue with article HERE

The second half of the article reports on the “Secure Communities” program which processes the fingerprints of all those arrested to identify illegal immigrants — between Oct 2008 and May 2010 over 2.6 million people were screened and this yielded 35,000 illegals previously arrested and/or convicted.

This finds the illegals who change their names and birthdates when arrested. This could deport more illegals than Arizona’s law, and the illegal advocates are in quite a snit. Worth reading


The Arizona State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police endorses and fully supports Jan Brewer for Governor of Arizona.

The Arizona State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police endorses and fully supports Jan Brewer for Governor of Arizona.

The Governor has been a consistent supporter of law enforcement during her 28 years in public service, in every elected post she has held. The Arizona FOP endorsement committee evaluated each gubernatorial candidate across a range of public safety issues and found Jan Brewer to be a true standout. During this past legislative session, for example, Gov. Brewer signed two bills that ranked among the Arizona FOP's highest priorities.

SB1325 greatly expanded the due process rights of law enforcement officers, including granting officers fair rights to representation in the event of an investigation and ensuring that officers are provided with the facts that are the basis of any complaints. SB 1124 improved the deferred retirement option plan for corrections officers and extended this valuable program through 2016.

Most important of all, Governor Brewer led the charge to pass Proposition 100, which protected law enforcement jobs across the state and prevented budget cuts that would have decimated the state Department of Public Safety. The Governor’s efforts directly resulted in Prop 100 being placed on the May 18th ballot and her leadership helped ensure its landslide victory with 64 percent of the vote statewide.

In sum, Jan Brewer gets it. Consistently, for nearly three decades, she has been a strong advocate for public safety, for keeping citizens, neighborhoods and the men and women working the front lines safe. Today, the Fraternal Order of Police – the largest law enforcement organization in the United States with more than 326,000 members – is proud to be there for her.

They sue Arizona for UPHOILDING U.S. law, but fail to sue ‘sanctuary cities’ for illegally circumventing U.S. law..

And their argument is that it ‘hurts US-MEXICO relations’

I love the way Gov. Brewer always goes right to the heart of the matter.

If our government fails to follow the law that protects us from an invasion by a foreign country, are we to lay down and say “Please protect us”. It has never happened that way and never will. Our Constitution puts the ball in their court and they have deliberately ignored it.

Is Illegal Immigration Bad for America’s Health?

Is Illegal Immigration Bad for America’s Health?

FOX News

by Dr. Manny Alvarez

The simple answer is: Yes. If you look at the way that legal immigration is conducted around the world, it is always based on a set of checks and balances. One of those checks is the prevention of certain communicable diseases.

Here is a list of things people applying for visa/residency status in this country may be tested for during their physical exam as required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Syphilis (for applicants 15 years or older)
HIV (blood test)
Narcotic drug addiction
Physical or mental disorders with associated harmful behavior
Lymphogranuloma venerum
Granuloma inguinal

Under the immigration laws of the United States, a foreign national who applies for an immigrant visa abroad, or who seeks to adjust status to a permanent resident while in the U.S., is required to receive vaccinations to prevent the following diseases:

Mumps Measles-Rubella
Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids
Haemophilus influenzae type B
Hepatitis B

Any other vaccine-preventable diseases recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices
Now, this list is not just an American standard — you will find similar lists in most developed countries around the world. Without a system of checks and balances, we run the risk of having diseases that have otherwise been eradicated in this country coming back in a big way. When people travel here illegally, they could have the potential to spread certain diseases that could be very devastating to the general population.

Let’s take tuberculosis for instance. Active tuberculosis is a very dangerous communicable disease that is easily spread if someone is an active carrier. Early onset of tuberculosis may not have any warning signs, and yet it could develop into a full-blown case of the disease, as we have seen happen many times over the last decade in this country. One of the scariest things about tuberculosis, is that there are now many strains of the disease that are resistant to the current medical treatments.

The prevalence of other diseases like malaria and Chagas disease – which is a parasitic infection in the blood stream – are being seen more frequently in areas of the country where some of these diseases were not present before. In the case of Chagas disease, more and more blood banks are testing for this parasite since it can be transmitted inadvertently during a routine blood transfusion. If infected blood happens to be given to patient with a compromised immune system, the consequences can be deadly.

I’m not here to argue what the best solution is for immigration laws in this country. My family and I are certainly beneficiaries of having the opportunity to come to this country and embrace the American dream. However, I do know that whatever immigration policy this administration decides to implement, a non-compromising point must be that the health of the American people be protected, because if we do not protect the health of our citizens, the long-term effects could be dangerous.

The average American has no idea about the true societal cost of illegal aliens from 3rd World countries, it is immeasurable.

House Passes War Funding

Toby Keith performing Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue


Obama is facing something of a Democratic revolt against the war in Afghanistan -- a revolt dramatically on display today as the House debated a $33 billion bill to fund the war.

Democrat after Democrat came forward not just to oppose the war, but to cut off funding for it.

"Wake up, America. The Wikileak-leaked documents gave us 92,000 reasons to end the war," said Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.
"It is wrong to be borrowing money from China [and] laying off American police officers to train police officers in Afghanistan," said Rep. Jay Inslee, D-Wash.

Last year, when the House last voted on war funding, 32 Democrats voted no. This evening, that number more than tripled to 102 Democrats voting against funding the war -- a stand lawmakers took even after a last-ditch appeal by the president urging members to vote in favor.

Many House Democrats were not in lock-step with the White House.

""It is a mistake to give the administration another blank check for the war," said Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass.

"There's nowhere in the constitution that says that the president just gets to go and fight wars without the oversight of the Congress," said said Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn....( MUSLIM - Wild Thing).

"We are the Congress. It is our job to do our constitutional duty. It is not second-guessing. It is oversight. It is engaging in the process of governance."

Opposition to the war came from some of the top Democrats in Congress, including appropriations chairman David Obey, D-Wis., who voted in favor of war funding the last time around.

"I cannot look my constituents in the eye and say that this operation will hurt our enemies more than it hurts us," Obey said during debate leading up to the vote. "If the Pakistani and Afghan governments were doing half the job that American troops are doing in this war, I wouldn't be worried about supporting this bill. But tragically they aren't, and the biggest favor we can do those troops is to recognize that reality."

In contrast, Democratic supporters of the war kept a low profile, and so did the Democratic leadership. During the debate, neither Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi nor any other Democratic House leader came forward to speak in favor of funding the war.

They had to pass it since November is coming up.

Obama Family To Take 3 Vacations In August

In January 2009, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama lectured America saying, “Everyone must sacrifice for the greater good… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

The White House announced this week that the Obama Family has three vacations planned for August. Michelle and daughter Sasha will travel to the coast of Spain next week with close family friends. Later in the month the First Family will vacation in Florida before their 10 day vacation in the upscale northeastern resort island of Martha’s Vineyard.

The vacations were announced after the president told the media this past weekend:

Obama: My Family Finances Have Suffered, Too

Obama says he can relate to the plight of Americans striving in the struggling economy to pay bills while saving for their kids' education.

He says he and first lady Michelle Obama took a hit like everybody else when the economy nearly collapsed, telling ABC that a college fund for daughters Malia and Sasha has gone "up and down" with the stock market.

Obama says the first couple is "not that far removed from what most Americans are going through." He tells the network "it was just a few years ago that we had high credit card balances, we had two kids, thinking about college. We had our own retirement accounts, wondering if we were going to be able to get enough assets in there."

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

The ole “do as I say but not as I do” BS. How about a permanent vacation for Barack and Michelle in jail.

Horrible Barbara Boxer Equates Serving In Military With Serving In Congress

Barbara Boxer equates serving as a policeman, firefighter, and veteran to serving in Congress.

At a campaign event over the weekend in Inglewood, California, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer seemingly equated being a politician to serving in the military –- and an Iraq War veteran supporting Boxer’s November opponent is calling on her to apologize.

“We know that if you have veterans in one place where they can befriend each other and talk to each other. You know when you’ve gone through similar things you need to share it. I don’t care whether you are a policeman or a fireman or a veteran or by chance a member of Congress,” the California senator said. “[Democratic Rep.] Maxine [Waters] and I could look at each other and roll our eyes. We know what we are up against. And it is hard for people who are not there to understand the pressure and the great things that go along with it and the tough things that go along with it.”

“Barbara Boxer’s disrespectful comments underscore just how out of touch she has become after her 28 years in Washington,“ Veterans for Carly Coalition Co-Chairman Lt. Commander Paul Chabot said in a press release, in response to Boxer’s comments. “Equating the experiences of members of Congress with those of brave soldiers who have fought to defend our country is just the latest example in a failed career marked by disrespect for our men and women in uniform.”

Chabot added, “Barbara Boxer owes an immediate apology to all members of America’s armed forces.”


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

She isn't worthy to lick the boot soles of any serviceman, policeman, fireman, EMT or anyone who serves & protects or for that matter has a real job.

Somebody needs to put her on a ship, make her work 14 - 18 hour days, eat crappy food, sleep (when you can) on a 3 inch thick foam pad in a 6 X 3 X 3 foot bunk listening to the melodious sound of 30 other people snoring accompanied by catapults, arresting gear, and jet engines for 6 - 8 months or longer at a time. And THAT is only if she was in the Navy, then we can move her to each of the other branches of services. sheesh!

Treason From WikiLeaks and Anyone Else Connected To This IMO

Here is the asshole founder of Wikileaks.

WikiLeaks promises there’s going to be much more and its founder (who should be in jail) has already said “he believes there is evidence of war crimes.”

Julian Assange should be hung for TREASON. ~ Wild Thing

Close to 92,000 US documents and a total of 91,731 reports from United States military databanks relating to the war in Afghanistan .WikiLeaks is posting the documents, most of which are classified, on its website.


From Pat Dollards Blog

Pentagon Investigates Gay Rights Activist Soldier As Source Of Wikileaks Leak

“Manning wrote he had copied onto compact discs “possibly the largest data spillage in American history” while listening and lip-synching to Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.”

Military investigators are checking computers used by Bradley Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst charged this month with leaking classified information, to see if he is the source of thousands of military documents published Sunday by WikiLeaks.

The material released by WikiLeaks relates entirely to the war in Afghanistan, while Pfc. Manning was stationed in Iraq. But investigators are trying to determine what material he was able to get access to and what material he transferred.

Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, said investigators are looking broadly to determine where the material was taken from, but acknowledged that Pfc. Manning was a person of interest in the investigation. “He is someone we are looking at closely,” Col. Lapan said.

WikiLeaks Sunday published thousands of secret U.S. military documents spanning more than five years. The information is in part humdrum and also dramatic, showing in raw detail the intelligence reports sent from personnel in the field. Among other things, the documents discuss civilian casualties, Pakistan’s role in aiding the Taliban and the weapons capabilities of the Afghan insurgency.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, at a news conference in London Monday, declined to comment on the identity of the source who leaked the documents, or on how the source managed to copy and leak them.

Asked about Mr. Manning, Mr. Assange said: “There is no allegation as far as we can determine” that the documents posted on WikiLeaks Sunday are “connected to Bradley Manning.”

He said WikiLeaks has nonetheless “committed funds” to Pfc. Manning’s legal defense, offering his military-appointed legal team money in case it wants to hire civilian counsel.

Mr. Assange said the source who leaked the documents was motivated by a desire “to call attention to a number of these incidents.”

In early July, the U.S. military announced it would press criminal charges against 22-year-old Pfc. Manning for allegedly transferring classified military information to his computer and “delivering national defense information to an unauthorized source.”

These charges appear to be connected to the leak of a classified video that WikiLeaks released to the public. The video, which depicts the July 2007 killing of two Reuters journalists and other individuals in Iraq by Apache helicopter gunships, provoked an international media sensation. In early April, Wikileaks released “Collateral Murder,” a package of documents and videos related to the attack.

The organization said an anonymous leaker, credited only as “our courageous source,” had furnished the materials, which included dramatic gunsight video.

According to a U.S. military charge sheet, Pfc. Manning improperly obtained secret information, including classified State Department cables and video footage of a July 2007 military operation, while stationed at a base east of Baghdad.

Earlier AP Story, July 6 2010:

POTOMAC, Md. — With his custom-made “humanist” dog tags and distrust of authority, Bradley Manning was no conventional soldier. Ostracized by peers in Baghdad, busted for assaulting a fellow soldier and disdainful of the military’s inattention to computer security, the 22-year-old intelligence analyst styled himself a “hactivist.”

On Tuesday, the U.S. Army charged him with multiple counts of mishandling and leaking classified data and putting national security at risk. Manning is suspected of leaking a classified video that shows a group of men walking down the street in Iraq before being repeatedly shot by Apache helicopters.

In a series of online chats in late May with a fellow computer geek, Manning claimed he had leaked a staggering 260,000 classified diplomatic reports, along with secret video of U.S. service members killing civilians, to the whistleblower website

Manning is a slight, boyish-looking son of divorced parents from Crescent, Okla., population 1,400. His Facebook page shows him smiling, with stylish, upswept hair and a stated affinity for gay-rights groups including Repeal the Ban, which seeks to end the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on homosexuals serving in the U.S. military.

Growing up in a house he shared with his parents and older sister, Manning had a sharp intellect and an interest in science, history and computers, said Jordan Davis, a boyhood pal. He said Manning also was determined at a young age to join the Army. “It always seemed to me that Bradley was actually was more patriotic than probably even your average person,” he said.

Chera Moore, another childhood friend, described Manning as highly intelligent and helpful. But she said he had “anger issues” and could get furious when people disagreed with him.

When Manning’s parents split up in middle school, he left Oklahoma to live with his mother in Wales, Davis said. After Manning graduated from high school and returned to Oklahoma, he quit or lost jobs in food service and retail in Tulsa, Davis said. Settling briefly in Chicago, Manning moved in with an aunt in Potomac, a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., and took community college courses before joining the Army in 2007.

Davis said Manning trained in Arizona, probably at Fort Huachuca, where he trained in compiling intelligence reports. Such reports help the military determine changes in enemy capabilities, vulnerabilities and probable courses of action.

In recent months, Davis said, Manning seemed to have grown more aware of social issues, including the gay-rights movement.

Manning’s family members declined interview requests from The Associated Press.

According to partial chat logs Lamo shared first with, Manning started communicating with Lamo on May 21, a couple weeks after he was reduced in rank from specialist to private first class for assaulting another soldier.

In one of many personal asides, Manning told Lamo he had been the only nonreligious person in a town that had “more pews than people,” and that he had custom-made dogtags reading “humanist.”

Manning said he was pending discharge for an “adjustment disorder,” according to the chat logs, but Army spokesman Lt. Col. Eric Bloom said Manning wasn’t facing discharge when he was detained May 29.

The chats reveal Manning’s frustration at being “regularly ignored” at work. “I’ve been isolated so long,” he wrote. “I just wanted to be nice, and live a normal life … but events kept forcing me to figure out ways to survive … smart enough to know what’s going on, but helpless to do anything.”

According to the chat logs, Manning’s turning point came when he watched Iraqi police detain 15 people for printing anti-Iraqi literature that turned out to be a scholarly critique of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. “After that … I saw things differently,” he wrote. “I was actively involved in something that I was completely against.”

Manning wrote he had copied onto compact discs “possibly the largest data spillage in American history” while listening and lip-synching to Lady Gaga’s “Telephone.” He wrote that he exploited “a perfect storm” of military computer vulnerability: “weak servers, weak logging, weak physical security, weak counterintelligence, inattentive signal analysis.”


The Wikileaks 'source': Former army analyst facing 52 years in prison

Source Independent World

As governments around the world assessed the damage done by Wikileaks's Afghanistan war logs, thoughts also turned to a lonely US Army private, who goes by the screen-name bradass87, currently behind bars in Kuwait.

Bradley Manning, 22, was serving as an army intelligence analyst in Baghdad when he was taken into custody by military police in May this year and transferred to Kuwait. Charges against him were filed this month and, if they stick, he could face 52 years in prison.

That Manning and Wikileaks are acquainted has been well established. Manning is charged with providing Wikileaks with a US military video of a raid in Iraq in July 2007 showing the gunning down of civilians, including two Reuters journalists. The charges currently filed against him stem from him disseminating that video.

Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, said he was ready to help fund a civilian defence Manning might launch to fight those charges. As to whether he was the source for the new trove of documents, Assange noted: "There's no allegation, as far as we can determine, that this material is connected to Mr Manning."

If Manning was the source, he might have got away with it had he not struck up a cyber-relationship with Adrian Lamo, a convicted hacker in California, who reported their contact to the Pentagon.

If Lamo thought he was doing the nation a service by exposing Manning, there was apparently little he could do about Wikileaks. It "has acted in a tremendously irresponsible fashion", Lamo said yesterday. "They took advantage of systems that were put into place for the purpose of intelligence sharing, for the purpose of making sure that all elements of national security both at home and abroad had access to the information they needed in order to do their job."

Lamo contended Manning could not have done it all alone. But Manning, we learn, had sufficient guile to see that while the military had banned all personnel from using zip drives and other storage devices that might be used to download sensitive material, they had not included CD-Roms. So, he would slip in discs that he pretended were Lady Gaga albums and even reportedly lipsynched her songs as he downloaded the secret material.


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

Our country has GOT to go back to coming down hard on those that commit treason.

Charge ALL involved with high treason! And the penalty must be death.

And how about holding Obama responsible for NOT stopping Wikileaks from releasing top secret data.

But damn TREASON has become “acceptable behavior” with Obama leading by example.

I heard on this next thing on the radio and it is important to note that WikiLeaks has thousands of Hillary Clinton’s classified diplomatic cables as Secretary of State to various foreign governments......and that Wikileaks and the NY Times refuses to publish them because their release might harm Democrats.

But classified military documents? No problem. They’ll publish those.

Lockerbie Probe and Connection To Obama

Lockerbie Probe May Prove Uncomfortable for Obama Administration

CNS News reported today that the Obama Administration preferred the release of Meghahi on compassionate grounds.

The Obama administration on Monday released the text of the LeBaron letter. It says Megrahi’s release on compassionate grounds would be “far preferable” than his return to Libya under a prisoner transfer agreement, but also sets two important conditions to this – he would have to remain in Scotland under supervision, and Scotland would have to release “the results of independent and comprehensive medical exams clearly establishing that Megrahi’s life expectancy is less than three months.”

The full text of the letter is here.


White House backed release of Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi

The Australian

Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.

The intervention, which has angered US relatives of those who died in the attack, was made by Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, a week before Megrahi was freed in August last year on grounds that he had terminal cancer.

The document, acquired by a well-placed US source, threatens to undermine US President Barack Obama's claim last week that all Americans were "surprised, disappointed and angry" to learn of Megrahi's release.

Scottish ministers viewed the level of US resistance to compassionate release as "half-hearted" and a sign it would be accepted.

The US has tried to keep the letter secret, refusing to give permission to the Scottish authorities to publish it on the grounds it would prevent future "frank and open communications" with other governments.

In the letter, sent on August 12 last year to Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond and justice officials, Mr LeBaron wrote that the US wanted Megrahi to remain imprisoned in view of the nature of the crime.

The note added: "Nevertheless, if Scottish authorities come to the conclusion that Megrahi must be released from Scottish custody, the US position is that conditional release on compassionate grounds would be a far preferable alternative to prisoner transfer, which we strongly oppose."

Mr LeBaron added that freeing the bomber and making him live in Scotland "would mitigate a number of the strong concerns we have expressed with regard to Megrahi's release".

American-Bred Terrorists Causing Alarm For Law Enforcement

Zachary Chesser, shown in this file image, accused of attempting to travel to Somalia to join the Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab appeared in federal court requesting that an attorney be appointed for him.

American-Bred Terrorists Causing Alarm For Law Enforcement


A Virginia man charged with providing material support to terrorists abroad appeared in court today requesting an attorney be appointed to him.

Zachary Chesser, 20, is accused of trying to join Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based Islamist militant group suspected in the recent bombing attacks in Uganda that left 73 dead and dozens more injured as they watched the World Cup final.

"I'm shocked—I'm just surprised," said Yvette Deale, Chesser's former neighbor. "It's not the kind of thing I would have expected in this neighborhood."

Chesser, who just two years ago was a high school football player and crew member in Fairfax, VA, is now one of 34 Americans accused of and charged with having ties to international terrorists in the past 18

Sources say this trend represents an unprecedented spike in homegrown terror and is an emerging threat that has them deeply concerned. What they consider to be most alarming is the fact that many of those charged were radicalized on the Internet, with thousands of Americans reportedly frequenting terror websites that espouse mass murder.

"This Is What We Have Feared"

A recently disclosed FBI Directorate of Intelligence document from July 2009 estimated that there were as many as 15,000 websites and web forums that were supportive of terrorist activities. Yet, officials say the number of websites is constantly changing since many of the sites and forums are not maintained, with current estimates indicating as many as 10,000 active sites.

The FBI analysis noted that about 80 percent of those sites existed on U.S.-based computer servers. U.S. officials say these type of sites rapidly gained popularity when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, began to post beheading videos on the

"This is what we have feared for a very long time—that finally the ideology of radical Islam is effectively reaching into the United States to disaffected people here over the Internet," said Richard Clarke, a former White House counterterrorism adviser.

Some suspects allegedly used the Internet to also contact radicals like cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. In 2009, Chesser reportedly told the FBI that he sent several e-mails to the New Mexico native, who in turn replied to a couple of them. Al-Awlaki, 39, has most recently been tied to Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the prime suspect in the Fort Hood massacre, as well as the failed Christmas Day bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

Americans Suspected of Terror

Some of those charged with terror are now well-known in this country, like Faisal Shahzad, the convicted would-be Time Square bomber. Just last week, a supposed martyrdom video surfaced in which an English-speaking Shahzad vocalized his appreciation for jihad, or holy war.

Also, David Headley from Chicago was convicted of helping to plan the November 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed more than 170 people. Then, associates of Najibullah Zazi, who is a permanent resident, were convicted of plotting to detonate bombs in New York City subways. And Michigan's own Colleen LaRose, more commonly known as Jihad Jane, was implicated in a plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist for drawing the head of the Prophet Muhammad on the body of a dog in 2007.

Interestingly enough, Zachary Chesser has his own connection to animators. In April, Chesser, using the identity of Abu Talhah Al-Amerikee, threatened the creators of Comedy Central's hit show "South Park," after they depicted the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit.

Posting on the website, he wrote, "what they are doing is stupid, and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of reality of what will likely happen to them." Van Gogh was a Dutch filmmaker who was killed in 2004 after making a film about women living in Islamic countries.

But there have been some suspected terrorists that have flown under the radar, like Bryant Vinas, who was accused of attacking a U.S. military base in Afghanistan and providing al-Qaeda with details about New York's railway system. Also, Michael Finton was arrested in a sting where he was attempting to detonate a truck bomb at a federal courthouse in Springfield, Illinois.

With so many potential threats, authorities say they are in a race against time to find these radicals before they launch a successful attack on the land they grew up on.
"In the last six to nine months," Clark said, "the FBI has seen more domestic Islamist extremist activity than at any time since immediately right after 9/11."

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

No. Islamic terrorists committing mass murder? No.

No it is white male “crackers” who are the terrorists for this regime.

Gibbs Asked About Obama Take On Hillary's Possible Run For Pres. and Obama NOT Going To Chelsea Wedding hmmmmm hmmm hmmmm

Robert Gibbs Asked if Obama has Assurances Hillary Won't Run in 2012

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs being asked yesterday at the White House Daily Briefing, about what “assurances” Obama has received from “his Secretary of State” that she will not run for President in 2012! Gibbs was caught flat-footed by the question, and after a pause, said he was “unaware of any assurance that this President needs about his Secretary of State.”

That question goes to the heart of the nightmare scenario for Obama and his team. They barely beat Hillary in 2008. If things continue to worsen, and Obama’s numbers fall into the mid to low 30′s by this time next year, a challenge from Hillary or others is a very real possibility.

Gibbs: "I am unaware of any assurance that this President needs about his Secretary of State.”


Obama not going to Chelsea nuptials

Washington (CNN)

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday President Obama will not attend the wedding of Chelsea Clinton scheduled for this weekend.

The location and invite list have been guarded like state secrets, but when asked at the end of the Monday White House press briefing whether the president would attend, Gibbs said "no."

Previously, Gibbs had said he was not aware of plans, but this is the first time he'd directly indicated the president will not be in attendance. No word on whether the president had actually been invited.

Media reports have the wedding taking place at the former estate of John Jacob Astor, Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, New York on Saturday, July 31. Some local media outlets had reported President Obama was to attend the event after the Secret Service was spotted working on security preparations. The 30 year-old Clinton is marrying longtime friend and beau Marc Mezvinsky, 32.

WWII POW’s Reunite For First Time In 66 Years

WWII POW’s Reunite For First Time In 66 Years


The last time Dr. Bob Otto and Bill Sutton saw each other, they were soaring above Austria.

That was right before the anti-aircraft guns tore a hole “you could put a washtub through” in the B-24 Liberator, Sutton said.
“We had a few miracles happen to us, and this getting together’s one of them, I think,” said Otto with a chuckle.
“Living to get here’s another one,” Sutton wryly replied.

They can joke now, decades removed from the incident that landed both men in Nazi prison camps. Thanks to some persistent relatives, the Internet, and a desire to see each other, Bill and Bob, now in their 90s, reminisce safely in Bob’s kitchen, a few recovered pieces of the B-24 sitting on the table.

“It’s the best news I’ve had in 66 years, as far as World War II is concerned,” Otto said.

A scrapbook and a box on Otto’s wall fill in the blanks. The box has medals, maps, and mementos, such as German cigarettes and a piece of cement from the Stalag Luft IV prison camp.

“I brought them all home from the prisoner-of-war camp,” he said, pointing to a spoon attached to the bottom of the display. ”This one has the insignia, the Nazi insignia on it.”

The final bombing run of the “Texarkana Hussy” happened in 1944. Leaking gas sparked a fire on the wing, which spread into the cabin when the crew started to drop its payload on the target below, said Sutton. Sutton was a waist gunner, and was one of the first to jump from the plane. Otto, the tailgunner, was the last out.

“I crawled out of the turret and there was this fire, like a big inferno, coming down the middle of the plane,” Otto said.

Laden with heavy equipment, both men had to tear off flight gear and flak jackets mid-air before they could pull their parachutes open.

"I landed in a tree, and immediately there were people there, civilians," Otto said, "and they got me and rushed me downtown to the jail... and all the other guys were there except Bill, and the two guys that got killed on the plane."

Bill Sutton managed to elude capture for a week with just a compass, a map, and a chocolate bar.

"I was going for Yugoslavia," he said. "Seven days, hadn't had anything to eat."
When he passed by a group of kids camping, one got on a bike ahead of him, he said.
"Four civilians met me on the road, turned me around," Sutton said. He remembers one friendly Austrian woman who fed him before he was taken into custody.
"She got me a glass of milk and a cinnamon bun," he said. "And man, that was good. When I was done she made sure there were no crumbs left on me so the Germans wouldn't see it."

Otto, meanwhile, was questioned and shipped north to the prison camp in a truck that was standing room only for several days.

"They had German shepherd dogs that took care of us if we got behind, so we all had to try and keep up," Otto said.
At the camp, "they didn't treat us bad," he said. "Fortunately we had one guard that had been an American citizen and he went back to Germany and they put him in the army, so he could speak English... We maneuvered him with candy bars and cigarettes to get things."
"We didn't eat very much. mostly some soup, maybe some cabbage in it," Otto said. Sutton said he lost more than 70 pounds during his capture.

Overseas telegrams told both men's family they'd been taken prisoners-of-war, but neither Otto nor Sutton knew if the other was alive.

Turns out, for a year, they were in separate compounds of the same camp. Both even marched 500 miles in a trek that killed 25 percent of their fellow captives.

"Started in February, 1945," Otto said. "That was the winter of the Battle of the Bulge, one of the coldest and snowiest winters they ever had."
"I marched for 70 days, the group I was in... we slept in barns... and when there were no barns, we slept outside," he added.

The march ended at another prison camp. But they were only there about a week when freedom came around the corner.

"We woke up one morning and all the guards were gone, the gates were open, and the guards had disappeared," Otto said. "So we knew something was happening and pretty soon we heard those old tanks roaring down the road, and we were happy to see those British [soldiers]."

Both men would get Distinguished Flying Crosses for finishing the bombing mission, POW medals for their experience. Otto would get a Purple Heart for burns he suffered as he escaped the B-24.

And both men went on with their lives -- Otto in Idaho, Sutton in Georgia. They made periodic searches for each other through the years, but never could find one another.

Otto eventually moved to Washington, working as a veterinarian, a pastor, even a politician.

One day, "my grandson was looking on Google, and... saw Bob's name and address, and my daughter-in-law called that number... and she got Bob on the phone," Sutton said.
Sutton immediately began making plans since "I'm getting to where I can't travel," he said. The reunion took place at Otto's home in a retirement community in Everett.
"You just can't describe, I'm glad to see him," Sutton said, choking up, and then under his breath, "Lord, glad to see him."
Otto said the reunion is also so his kids and grandchildren can understand what they went through. Otto has written a book about his experience called "A Walk With God: From Rural Idaho to a Nazi POW Camp and Back. "
"I think it's something they needed to know about," he said. "Young people don't know about World War II anymore. That's the only way they're going to know the truth, is if the people tell them, the people who were there."

Brothers in arms. Lost in capture. Reunited at last.

FOX News

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has lept on a Harley Davidson and roared into an international biker convention in southern Ukraine.

Around 5,000 bikers from Europe and beyond gathered in Sevastopol for the annual festival Saturday on Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula.

Putin, in Ukraine for talks with the country’s new Russia-friendly leadership, had his black shirt sleeves rolled up as he motored toward a stage along a dusty road on the three-wheeled bike. In sunglasses, black jeans and black fingerless gloves.

Guess what part of the Constitution goes next!??!!

Guess what part of the Constitution goes next!

Drastic change in works to revamp whole Electoral College


Democrats have found yet another way to circumvent the U.S. Constitution: Bypass the Electoral College and elect a president by popular vote without first passing an amendment to the founding document, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

The Massachusetts Senate has joined five other states in passing a National Popular Vote bill to do just that. It approved the legislation July 15 by a margin of 28-10.

The National Popular Vote, which already passed the Massachusetts House, is within one final "enactment vote" in the Massachusetts Senate before the measure can be ready for the governor's signature, the Boston Globe reported.
"Under the proposed law, all 12 of the state's electoral votes would be awarded to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally," according to the report.

"The idea is that Massachusetts will instruct its electors in the Electoral College to vote for the candidate receiving the majority of presidential election votes nationally, regardless of how the state's own voters cast their ballots," Corsi explained.

The Massachusetts National Popular Vote bill, if signed into law by Gov. Deval Patrick, will not go into effect until states possessing a majority of Electoral College votes pass similar legislation.

The movement is popularly characterized as "One Person, One Vote for President," a slogan designed to suggest the Electoral College method of counting presidential votes is "unfair" under a 14th Amendment "One Vote, One Person" definition of voter rights.

Critics fear the movement, if successful, could turn the entire nation into a potential "Florida 2000" battleground in close elections.

"Even in states where a candidate lost by a huge margin, every vote would need to be examined, a catastrophic, costly scenario," John Cork wrote in The New York Times.

"It would become possible, in a three-party race, for a candidate to fail to win even a single state but take the popular vote," he continued. "Do we really want to create a system where New York electoral votes could be determined by voters in Utah or Alaska?"

Corsi argues that a national movement to pass National Popular Vote legislation in the state legislatures has been motivated by Democrats who remain fixated on the idea that George W. Bush "stole" the 2000 presidential election, supposedly by relying on a Supreme Court decision to get Florida's electoral votes. They say the decision denied Al Gore the presidency, even though Gore got the majority of popular votes cast throughout the United States.

Once enough states possessing a majority of the electoral votes (270 of the 538 electors nationally) have enacted similar laws, the presidential candidate winning the most votes nationally would be assured a majority of the Electoral College votes, regardless of how other states vote or how their electors are distributed.

Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland and Washington have already adopted national-popular-vote bills.

These states add up to 61 electoral votes, 23 percent of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate the legislation: Illinois, 20 electoral votes; New Jersey, 15 votes; Hawaii, 4 votes; Maryland, 10 votes; and Washington state, 11 votes.

The bill has passed 30 legislative chambers in 20 states, Corsi wrote. The National Popular Vote movement is already one-fourth of the way to accomplishing its goal.

"If the National Public Vote movement succeeds," he added, "the president might be chosen by the popular-vote winner in 10 or 11 of the most populous states."


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

The bill approved by the Senate 28-10 last week is part of a nationwide effort to secure the agreement of enough states so the winner of the national popular vote would be guaranteed to win the presidency.

The bill will not go into effect until states possessing a majority of Electoral College votes pass similar legislation. Maryland, Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii and Washington state have approved the measure.

HORRIBLE! This maneuver will give the voting power to the socialist laden urban areas at the expense of the Conservative rural areas.

I bet this is all part of the mass amnesty plan. Once that happens, they’ll always win popular vote. And the republic is cooked.

This is unconstitutional!

Howard Dean Calls Fox News Racist, Chris Wallace Strikes Back

Howard Dean was in full unhinged form this morning on FOX News Sunday. The former DNC leader blamed FOX News for Shirley Sherrod’s ouster:

“Fox News did something that was absolutely racist… They had been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap… The tea party called out their racist fringe and I think the Republican Party has got to stop appealing to its racist fringe. And, FOX News is what did that.”

Unfortunately for Howard, that wasn’t exactly how things went down. Howard Dean misplayed his race cards… And, Chris Wallace slammed him for it. You see, Fox News didn’t touch the story until Sherrod’s forced resignation was made public Monday evening.

Howard Dean was speechless.

The Hill

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean accused Fox News of promoting racism, including in the recent fracas over the Obama administration’s forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod.
“Let’s just be blunt about this … I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist,” Dean charged on “Fox News Sunday.”
Dean said Fox helped promote the charges that Sherrod – who is black – made racist comments about white farmers, which led to her forced resignation Monday.
The fervor was built around a video of Sherrod speaking at an event hosted by the NAACP shown online by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart.

Obama said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack “jumped the gun” in dismissing Sherrod. The NAACP – which initially applauded the move to ouster Sherrod – also apologized. “You’re seeing a calamity of errors here,” Rev. Jesse Jackson said later on Fox News Sunday.

But Dean emphasized that it was Fox News that helped apply the pressure.

“Fox News was not blameless during this,” Dean said. “You played it up.”

But host Chris Wallace shot back, “I know facts are inconvenient things, but let’s deal with the facts.” They include that Fox News did not play the clip or mention her name before the Obama administration forced Sherrod on Monday to step down, he said.


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

“this phony Black Panther crap”

Facts are facts, Howard. You explain to us why the Obama Administration did not prosecute these criminals.

Michelle Obama started all of this with her white devil speech at the NAACP.....They are so desperate, they have only one card left to play....and it is not working.

That was beautiful when Chris reduced Howie to a harumphing, borgoling, throat clearing liar. I liked it when Chris hit him with “facts are stubborn things” retort.

Howard Dean is a putz of epic proportions. His many years of swilling the Dhimmirat koolaid have left him incapable of original thought, and leaves him babbling when faced with truth presented in logical fashion.

The only people still pushing the racial agenda are those whose livelihoods depend upon keeping the pot stirred and nearing a boil. The rest of us have more pressing the future of the nation, the creeping socialism of the 0bamunists, and the destruction of our freedoms, one by one.

Multiple Ranches In Laredo,TX. Taken Over By Los Zetas

Drug cartels deploy a car bomb in Cuidad Juarez near El Paso, Texas

Multiple Ranches In Laredo,TX. Taken Over By Los Zetas

UPDATE: Story is now 100% confirmed by second source within the Laredo Police Department

The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed.

Founder of the San Diego Minutemen Jeff Schwilk tipped me off to this story and passes along the following information on the location. The ranches are said to be "near Mines Rd. and Minerales Annex Rd about 10 miles NW of I-35".

Update - Statement from Mr. Schwilk)

"I can personally vouch that this info came in late last night from a reliable police source inside the Laredo PD. There is currently a standoff between the unknown size Zeta forces and U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement on two ranches on our side of the Rio Grande. The source tells us he considers this an "act of war" and that the military is needed on the border now!"

Whether it is lone members or squads is not certain.

Anonymous sources in law enforcement in the Laredo area tonight have passed on word that US law enforcement agencies are in the area and are weighing their options regarding the ranches.

The media has been silent on this incident and some law enforcement in the area says that they are furious that the media is not reporting the whole story of the continued violence along the border. Their frustrations are understandable because keeping the truth suppressed continues to hamper law enforcement from receiving the true support they need along the border.

The ranch assaults come on the heels of attacks in Nuevo Laredo that shut the city down as a gun-battle raged in the streets. Los Zetas blocked off intersections with vehicles and used fragmentation grenades to attack Mexican law enforcement. In the end 12 were killed and 21 injured in the assaults. Citizens in the area were told to stay in their homes and bullets whizzed all around.


Cypress Times

The U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo had posted warnings on its website hours before the gunfire was reported by Texas citizens, “We have received credible reports of widespread violence occurring now between narcotics-trafficking organizations and the Mexican army in Nuevo Laredo.”
The U.S. Consulate went on to say, “The consulate confirmed that fragmentation grenades were used in the attacks and that suspected drug-gang members had blocked several roads, adding that it advised ‘all U.S. citizens in Nuevo Laredo to remain indoors until the security situation improves.’”

US Citizens in Laredo called 911 after hearing gunfire and explosions just across the border. Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza deflected the concerns of citizens with what I see as utter contempt. He said there was no spillover violence onto the US side and "We were getting reports from people who live on the river's edge that they could hear gunfire and explosions from the Mexico side," Baeza said, "We didn't have any incidents on the American side. It's hard for people to understand who don't live here ... They're not Vikings, they're not going to invade us, it doesn't work that way."

This was said just a day before the reported breaking news on the ranches being taken above.

Violence has been on the rise along the border. In April 2010 a Border Patrol agent in Laredo shot and killed an lllegal alien drug smuggler near the Rio Grande

The Los Zetas are highly trained killers initially trained by United States Special Operations forces to combat the drug cartes within Mexico. As the drug war heated up the Zetas saw more money in working for the cartels and joined up with the Gulf Cartel.

In March, 2010 there was a fracture between the Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel when a Zetas leader was said to have been assassinated by the Gulf Cartel. They demanded that the killer be turned over to them. When the Gulf Cartel refused the Zetas captured 16 Gulf Cartel members.

Since March Los Zetas abandoned their stronghold in Reynosa and moved to Nuevo Laredo, just across from the border with Laredo, Texas. There are estimated to be over 1,000 Zeta members there.


Battles paralyze Mexican city across from Texas

Houston Chronicle

Gangs used stolen cars and buses to block several main avenues in the city across from Laredo, Texas. Several residents called local newspapers to report thefts.

"For your security, stay in your homes until the alert has passed," the city government wrote on Facebook.


Additional Source Reporting on Laredo Siege - reports the following -

In what could be deemed an act of war against the sovereign borders of the United States, Mexican drug cartels have seized control of at least two American ranches inside the U.S. territory near Laredo, Texas.

Two sources inside the Laredo Police Department confirmed the incident is unfolding and they would continue to coordinate with U.S. Border Patrol today. “We consider this an act of war,” said one police officer on the ground near the scene. There is a news blackout of this incident at this time and the sources inside Laredo PD spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Word broke late last night that Laredo police have requested help from the federal government regarding the incursion by the Los Zetas. It appears that the ranch owners have escaped without incident but their ranches remain in the hands of the blood thirsty cartels.

Laredo Border Patrol is conducting aerial surveillance over the ranches to determine the best way to regain control of the U.S. ranches, according to the Laredo Police department.

From AP...on gun battles plaguing the region across from Laredo, Texas:

Late-night gunbattles with gangs who forced citizens from their cars and used the vehicles to block streets paralyzed a border city, sound of gunfire alarmed Texans on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande.
The Nuevo Laredo city government posted messages on Facebook warning citizens to stay indoors as the battles erupted at several intersections in the city across from Laredo, Texas.
Frightened people on the U.S. side of the border called emergency dispatchers after hearing the gunfire, Laredo police spokesman Joe Baeza said Thursday. But he said there was no spillover violence.
“We were getting reports from people who live on the river’s edge that they could hear gunfire and explosions from the Mexico side,” Baeza said.
“We didn’t have any incidents on the American side. It’s hard for people to understand who don’t live here,” he added. “They’re not Vikings, they’re not going to invade us, it doesn’t work that way.”
Nuevo Laredo city officials said they could not immediately confirm witness reports that several gunmen were killed.

Despite those denials, rumors are swirling of a Zetas-led invasion into Texas ranches. Digger’s Realm, a veteran immigration blogger, has the story:

The bloodbath continues along our southern border and now word is coming in that Los Zetas, the highly trained killers formerly with the Gulf Cartel, have crossed into the United States and taken over at least two ranches in the Laredo, Texas area. I am receiving word that the owners of the ranches have evacuated without being harmed. The source is law enforcement in the area.

(Update 2 story is now 100% confirmed by second source within the Laredo Police Department)

Founder of the San Diego Minutemen Jeff Schwilk tipped me off to this story and passes along the following information on the location. The ranches are said to be “near Mines Rd. and Minerales Annex Rd about 10 miles NW of I-35″.

Update 1 (Statement from Mr. Schwilk)

I can personally vouch that this info came in late last night from a reliable police source inside the Laredo PD. There is currently a standoff between the unknown size Zeta forces and U.S. Border Patrol and local law enforcement on two ranches on our side of the Rio Grande. The source tells us he considers this an “act of war” and that the military is needed on the border now!

Update: Elizabeth Kilbride has contradictory info from the Laredo PD regarding the rumored ranch seizures:

Individuals who have flooded the switchboards of the Laredo Police Department and the Webb Sheriff’s Department have been asking one question: is there a problem down along the border? They have received the same response just as I received when I asked the same question, “Yes, there is a problem down here and it’s serious,” said one law enforcement source. When asked if there is any truth to the rumors of a Texas Rancher having their property taken over by the Cartel on this side of the border their response was clear, “Hell no and I’d know, I’m a 9-11 operator.”
As you can see it’s all about how you ask the question in order to receive the correct answer when inquiring into such a seriously volatile situations. When you call any police department along the border and ask if there is a problem down their way, of course they will say there is for sure. They deal with border issues every day and yes, there is a serious problem down their way. Therefore, please be sure to ask the right questions before posting out to the masses about this issue. I for one am guilty today of doing the same as all of you, which is why I made the phone calls and asked the right questions to quell this situation once and for all.

Confederate Yankee also called Laredo PD: No ranch seizures.

BUT LOOK at this.....................

Meanwhile, in Monterrey today:

Investigators said Saturday they have found 51 corpses in two days of digging in a field near a trash dump outside the northern city of Monterrey, as excavations continued at one of the largest clandestine body dumping grounds in Mexico’s bloody drug war.
The attorney general of Nuevo Leon state, where Monterrey is located, said the victims included 48 men and 3 women. There so many bodies that authorities were using refrigerated trucks to hold them, Alejandro Garza y Garza told local television.

OMG and the more this happens the further into Texas they will do this, and not only Texas.

Taliban Says It Captured 2 U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

U.S. Troops Missing in Kabul

Washington Post Foreign Service

KABUL -- Two U.S. service members went missing after driving off their base in Kabul on Friday, and the Taliban later claimed to have captured them in eastern Afghanistan, NATO officials said Saturday, the same day five U.S. troops were killed in the south.

Coalition forces launched a manhunt by ground and air for the two missing troops but did not immediately release information about their identities or what is known of their whereabouts. The Associated Press reported that the two were Navy personnel, citing a NATO official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"Every available asset is being brought to bear" to find them, said Lt. Col. Joseph T. Breasseale, a NATO spokesman in Kabul.

Afghan officials in Logar province, which borders Kabul to the south, said the two service members were driving an armored sport-utility vehicle when they were captured in Matinai, a village in the Charkh district. A spokesman for Logar's governor, Din Mohammad Darwish, said the area is "totally under control of the enemy."

A Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, called Afghan reporters in Logar on Saturday and told them that the militant movement had captured the two Americans and killed one of them, according to an Afghan reporter and the governor's spokesman. NATO officials said they could not confirm the statements of the Afghan officials or the Taliban.

The announcement of the two service members' disappearance came on a difficult day for NATO forces, as five U.S. troops were killed in bomb attacks in southern Afghanistan, the volatile region where the Taliban is strongest. Four of the troops died in one bomb blast, and one died in a separate attack, NATO officials said.

The deaths pushed NATO's death toll in July to 75 troops, including 56 Americans. Last month was the deadliest of the war for NATO troops, with more than 100 killed.

President Obama has sent 30,000 new U.S. troops to Afghanistan, and commanders attribute the growing violence to the push into Taliban strongholds where the coalition previously had a minimal presence. Others say that the Taliban has grown stronger by the year and that it now controls wide swaths of the country.

Kidnappings of U.S. troops in Afghanistan are rare. One American soldier, Spec. Bowe Bergdahl, from Idaho, has been held captive since June 2009.


More details here:

2 US Navy service members missing in eastern Afghanistan

FOX News

Samer Gul, district chief of Charkh district in Logar province, said that a four-wheel drive armored vehicle was seen Friday night by a guard working for the district chief’s office. The guard tried to flag down the vehicle, carrying a driver and a passenger, but it kept going, Gul said.

“They stopped in the main bazaar of Charkh district. The Taliban saw them in the bazaar,” Gul said. “They didn’t touch them in the bazaar, but notified other Taliban that a four-wheel vehicle was coming their way.”
The second group of Taliban tried to stop the vehicle, but when it didn’t, insurgents opened fire and the two occupants in the vehicle shot back, he said.

NATO said a search is under way for the missing service members. According to Gul, one may have been killed and the other taken hostage by the Taliban.

“Maybe they wanted to go to Paktia province or to the American base, but they came down the wrong road toward Charkh,” Gul said. “They didn’t pay any attention to the police. Otherwise we could have kept them from going into an insecure area and now this unfortunate incident has happened.”

Military officials could not confirm the district chief’s account.

Inspector General Finds Racial Bias In Auto Dealership Closings Ordered By Obama

Inspector general finds racial bias in auto dealership closings ordered by Obama

Examiner Tampa Bay

Troubled Asset Relief Program Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky has found that many of the General Motors and Chrysler dealerships ordered closed by the Obama administration, after last year’s bailouts, were victims of racial, gender and even political bias.

According to Barofsky’s report, 2,000 dealerships were forced to close which cost 100,000 jobs.

However, the businesses allowed to stay open “were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority-or woman-owned dealerships.”

The report also indicates a political bias may have come into play, due to a disproportionate number of dealership closings in rural areas, even though the closures could "jeopardize the return to profitability" for both GM and Chrysler.

Barofsky states: “ultimately close to half of all of the GM dealerships identified for termination were in rural areas.”

Of course, in 2008, Obama lost the vote in the nation's 1,300 rural counties by close to 80 percent.

Perhaps, most troubling of all was the statement made last week, to American Thinker magazine by Obama’s manufacturing czar, Ron Bloom, that the dealerships could have been kept open, “but that doing so would have been inconsistent with the President's mandate for ‘shared sacrifice.’”

With this report, we witness yet another example of institutional racism by the Obama administration. While we know that Obama is willing to sit by and allow the New Black Panthers to intimidate white voters to stay away from the polls on election day, we now see that he is also willing to take away one’s livelihood, based on the color of their skin.

This may be the most infuriating action as yet, from a president whose popularity has fallen as quickly as it once rose. At a time when 1 in 5 Americans are either out of work or underemployed, to needlessly force 100,000 of them into the ranks of the jobless, is inexcusable. To do so because of race or political beliefs should be an impeachable offense.

As usual, the mainstream press is silent on the matter.

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

I remember one of the posts I did back when this happend, the article said most car dealers that were closed were Republican owned and the proof of this was in the donor records.

This is identical to the shut down of the oil drilling industry in the south. The purpose is to hit Republican areas with high unemployment.

Gretchen Carlson (FOX) must have gone ballistic when this came out. Her dad’s lifetime dealership was closed by Obama.

SB1070 Protesters Get 'disobedience' training For The Day The Law Goes Into Effect

FOX News Phoenix

PHOENIX - Assuming a judge doesn't step in, we're less than a week away from Arizona's immigration law going into effect.

As the tough immigration law takes effect, organizers are calling for a day of "non-compliance" - meaning there will likely be a number of arrests during next week's protests - and now training is being offered to protesters.

Isaac Martin is a local activist who's putting on a training class for people who want to protest the immigration law. He won't talk about specific tactics, but Martin says he'll prepare demonstrators for the possibility of being arrested.

"There are various types of non-violent direct actions that have no risk as far as legal arrests, but when you're talking about civil disobedience, that's when you understand there is a risk," Martin says.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix police department is calling in extra officers and getting ready to handle large immigration protests.


‎"Sellout". "Traitor to your race". Jesse Hernandez of the Arizona Latino Republican Association has been called those and worse. But he is standing tall and supporting SB1070. More and more patriotic Latino voices are coming out without fear to support the rule of law.


Tensions Run High Inside and Outside SB1070 Courtroom

Wild Thing's comment......

If Republicans did this, the Left would be screaming “Nazis” “Brown Shirts” “Hitler”, “Fascism”, etc.

With only 5 days remaining until 1070 takes effect, it's critical importance to the entire nation is made ever more clear by the panicked response of the opposition.

"There are various types of non-violent direct actions that have no risk as far as legal arrests, but when you're talking about civil disobedience, that's when you understand there is a risk," Martin says.

I bet that is right out of the 60's radicals playbook.

Joe Arpaio will be glad to deal with the punks and illegals, and has plenty of room in tent city for them.

Obama and Harry Reid Address Netroots ( NUTRoots ) Nation 2010

Obama to Netroots Nation: ‘Let’s Finish What We’ve Started’

Barack Obama sought to rally his progressive base.

“We’re moving America forward and when we’ve come this far we can’t afford to slide backward,” Obama said, “Let’s finish what we’ve started.”

Nutroots Nation, they've put video from Rachel Maddow talking about Obama's so called accomplishments in the middle.

Barack Obama was presented to the ultra-liberal gathering of the Netroots Nation in Las Vegas on Saturday that included MSNBC's Rachel Maddow listing his accomplishments.

What does it say about this administration that it wouldn't find it at all unseemly to use the most left-leaning television network, along with one of its most liberal hosts, to propagandize political conference attendees?

Unconcerned with the picture this painted, Obama told the gathering, "Change hasn't come fast enough for too many Americans...But I hope you take a moment to consider all we've accomplished so far."

With that, the video switched to short clips from the June 25 "Rachel Maddow Show"

Amazing, the left is trying to make a deal out of any Republican candidate that associates itself with the tea party, but Barack Obama can address and a slew of Democrats can attend this Nutroots conference and not a word is said.

most liberal president in American history needed potentially the most liberal commentator on television to help him sell his record to a gathering of potentially the most liberal people in the country.

Despite what Maddow thinks, what does that say about this man's job performance eighteen months into his presidency?


Harry Reid Tells Netroots America “Would be in a Lot More Trouble if We Weren’t Around”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid telling the Netroots Convention today that America “would be in a lot more trouble if we weren’t around.”
He earlier told the gathering of Left-wing radicals that he knew that he “got on their nerves.” He also told them they got on his nerves sometimes.


Nutroots Nation gave a standing ovation to former Obama Green Jobs Czar Van Jones this weekend at their national convention.

The American Spectator

Van Jones, the former Obama “green jobs czar” who was forced to resign after it was revealed that he signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether the Bush administration deliberately allowed the Sept. 11 attacks to happen, was given a standing ovation by liberal activists here at the Netroots Nation conference.

In a video introduction, former DNC chairman Howard Dean called Jones a “hero.”

During his speech, Jones said that he threw himself a long “pity party” after his exit from the administration, but compared his own struggle to the larger state of the nation. He made the case for investing in new energy technologies, and dismissed concerns about the deficit.

“There’s plenty of money out there, the only question is how to spend it,” Jones said.


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

Obama said, “Let’s finish what we’ve started.”

Yeah, like wrecking the country!! What we’ve started????? What a jack-ass, and it’s Las Vegas to boot with 14.5% unemployment! Damn, some people better get a grip on reality.

Obama won’t be satisfied til he finishes us all off. He knows he doesn’t stand a snowballs chance in hell of being re-elected so he wants to destroy this country as much as possible so even if a Republican is elected the damage will already have been done.

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz Completely Unhinged As He Goes After FOX News

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz completely unhinged as he spoke to a group of radicals at the Netroots gathering. Schultz whines about President Obama giving an interview to Fox News’ Bret Baier – in his timeslot – even though Schultz said, “I busted my a** for Obama.” He attacked Fox News repeatedly, and even said he was sorry to hear that Glenn Beck is “going blind,” because “I think it’s a travesty he’s not gonna see the country he’s trying to destroy.”

Schultz is a total loon, and it is obvious the reason Obama gave an interview to Bret Baier is because people watch him – Schultz has virtually no viewers.

RUSSERT: Yeah. I mean, these are really serious violations.

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: I mean, how do you think I got my job? I was elected. How do you think I lose it?

RUSSERT: Well, there's two ways. You could lose it if your colleagues voted you out of here because of ethics violations or if your constituents do not find you upstanding.

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: What station are you with? Well, you're young; I guess you do need to make a name for yourself.

RUSSERT: (chuckles)

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: But basically you know it's a dumb question, and I'm not answering.

RUSSERT: How is it a dumb question?

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: The allegations that were made by some people!

RUSSERT: Sir? Sir? You did not file taxes on properties in the Dominican Republic, allegedly.

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: It doesn't... It doesn't sound like... It doesn't...

RUSSERT: If that comes to be true, is that not a problem?

CONGRESSMAN RANGEL: It doesn't really sound like NBC --


CONGRESSMAN RANGEL -- asking these dumb questions. It just shows what has really happened to a channel that did have some respect.

Luke Russert is the son of Tim Russert, the late and much beloved television journalist who died tragically and suddenly several years ago at a relatively young age.

Anyone who may have thought the younger Russert was simply living off his father's coattails must reassess their position. After this episode it seems clear Luke Russert is willing and able to mix it up with the big boys.

Charles Rangel being confronted by MSNBC’s Luke Russert about his alleged ethics violations that he will soon have to answer for before a congressional committee. Russert shockingly did what journalists are supposed to do with elected officials – without regard to party. When someone in the mainstream media actually does their job these days, it is a shock to us all. Rangel was clearly taken aback, even noting that reporters from his network used to show him “more respect.”


Rush was very pleased to see real journalism happening here, especially from the likes of MSNBC. Don’t get me wrong…he’s not praising MSNBC, he’s praising Luke Russert for asking the tough questions.


House Democrat calls on Rep. Charles Rangel to resign

The Hill

In a major development, Rep. Betty Sutton (D-Ohio) on Friday night called on beleaguered Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) to resign.

Sutton's statement comes one day after the House ethics committee charged the 80-year-old Democrat with multiple violations.

In a statement to The Hill, Sutton stated, "It is regrettable, but Charlie Rangel needs to resign from his seat in Congress. This isn’t about being a Democrat or Republican, this is about preserving the public trust. Our nation is facing extraordinary challenges and we must be focused on building a sustainable economy that will allow our workers and businesses to flourish."

Sutton has built a reputation as a crusader for congressional ethics. In 2008, she led the fight to pass legislation creating the Office of Congressional Ethics, which now serves as an independent ethics body within the House of Representatives.

Earlier this year, Sutton called on Rangel to resign as Ways and Means Committee chairman days before the New York Democrat -- under pressure from House Democratic leaders -- gave up his gavel.

The first call on Rangel to resign from a sitting House Democrat could be the tipping point as an increasing number of Democrats are expressing concern over what Rangel could mean for the party's election prospects this fall.

The House ethics committee is set to release the full charges against Rangel at an open hearing next Thursday.

Rangel held a news conference in New York on Friday afternoon to once again declare his innocence.

Rangel said he was "pleased" that the full evidence against him would be aired Thursday, giving him the chance to defend himself.
"I am so pleased that they have and reported this to the ethics committee," Rangel said. "This is going to be done before my primary election, before my general election."

Investigation Reveals Numerous Bogus Claims On Obama Resume

Investigation reveals numerous bogus claims on Obama resume

Examiner Tampa Bay

In what is being called 'the biggest hustle in human history,' a special investigation has discovered numerous bogus claims on Barack Obama's resume, including the outright lie that he was a 'Constitutional scholar and professor.'

The claim turns out to be false.

As investigators delve further into the background of Barack Obama, a disturbing picture is emerging of a man who is not who he claims to be. The information the public has been told concerning Obama is turning out to be false--fabrications and inventions of a man and an unseen force behind him that had clear ulterior motives for seeking the highest office in the land.

According to a special report issued by 'the Blogging Professor,' the Chicago Law School faculty hated Obama. The report states that Obama was unqualified, that he was never a 'constitutional professor and scholar,' and that he never served as editor of the Harvard Law Review while a student at the school.

The real truth is that Barack Obama was merely an 'instructor' at Chicago Law School, not a professor. Commonly, instructors are non-tenure-track teachers hired by colleges and universities to teach certain courses for a salary that is well below that of Associate Professors or full Professors.

In the hierarchy of higher education, the status of instructors is below that of associate professors and professors because they lack the credentials.

In fact, it can be safely concluded that the claims of Barack Obama concerning his educational credentials and work history in higher education are a complete sham. The President of the United States is a complete fraud.

According to Doug Ross:

"I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about "Barry." Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn't even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn't have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct. "
"The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement). "

Thus, the question arises, was the claim that Obama was editor of the Harvard Law Review a 'put-up job' as well, allowing the student to claim he held this prestigious position without having the qualifications or meeting the requirements of holding that position? And why?


Consider this:

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a "lawyer". He surrendered his license back in 2008 possibly to escape charges that he "fibbed" on his bar application.

2. Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993.

3. So, we have the President and First Lady - who don't actually have licenses to practice law. Facts.

4. A senior lecturer is one thing. A fully ranked law professor is another. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, "Obama did NOT 'hold the title' of a University of Chicago law school professor". Barack Obama was NOT a Constitutional Law professor at the University of Chicago.

5. The University of Chicago released a statement in March, 2008 saying Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) "served as a professor" in the law school, but that is a title Obama, who taught courses there part-time, never held, a spokesman for the school confirmed in 2008.

These are highly disturbing facts, verified facts from the people who know at the Chicago Law School.

There is more from Ross, however:

6. "He did not hold the title of professor of law," said Marsha Ferziger Nagorsky, an Assistant Dean for Communications and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago School of Law.

7. The former Constitutional senior lecturer cited the U.S. Constitution recently during his State of the Union Address. Unfortunately, the quote he cited was from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

8. The B-Cast posted the video.

9. In the State of the Union Address, President Obama said: "We find unity in our incredible diversity, drawing on the promise enshrined in ourConstitution: the notion that we are all created equal."

10. By the way, the promises are not a notion, our founders named them unalienable rights. The document is our Declaration of Independence and it reads: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

11. And this is the same guy who lectured the Supreme Court moments later in the same speech?

When you are a phony it's hard to keep facts straight.

Obama has made sure that all of his records are sealed tight. And apart from the courageous souls at the various educational institutions who dared to speak the truth, the schools Obama claimed to attend unanimously refuse to release transcripts, records, or other bits of evidence concerning Obama's presence in their institutions.

BREAKING DEVELOPMENT--just as these disturbing facts come to light about Barack Obama, the White House is busy making deals with numerous 'journalists,' promising unprecedented access to the President in exchange for refraining from reporting certain information 'they may discover.'

Obama has lived for almost 50 years without leaving any footprints — none! There is no Obama documentation — no bona fides — no paper trail — nothing.

The Illinois State Archives told Judicial Watch that they never received any request from Senator Obama to archive any records in his possession. In 2007, Obama told Tim Russert that his records were “not kept.”
And there’s less on the web every day. In time, the entire Obama body of knowledge will consist of 3 documents — “Dreams From My Father” — “The Audacity of Hope” — and the latest — “Change We Can Believe In” — all written by Barack Hussein Obama or his “ghost-writers.”

Just an accident? I don’t think so.

ANTI ISRAEL Obama Makes It Possible For PLO Flag to Fly in Washington D.C.

Palestinian terrorists burn Israeli and American flags during a demonstration outside the Palestinian parliament in Gaza City July 17, 2007.

PLO Flag to Fly in Washington D.C.

The United States State Department has announced to the Palestinian Authority/Palestinian Liberation Organization Mission representative in the United States that its status will be upgraded from a 'bureau' to that of a "general delegation' and that this change will allow the office in which the representation is situated to fly the PLO, now also the Palestine Authority, flag at its entrance.

The upgrading, besides allowing the flag to be flown, also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity, although it is not equal to embassy status.

The PLO's chief representative in the United States, Maen Areikat, said that this step makes the PLO's status in the United States equivalent to its status in Canada and many western European countries.

Israeli Radio reported that sources in Prime Minister Netanyahu's office said that the Prime Minister knew of the planned step and did not object to it. . Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem claimed that the step was taken to strengthen Abu Maazen and try to get him to agree to direct talks with Israel. However, they expressed dissapointment that the White House did not make ceasing the PA's anti Israel incitement a condition for the status upgrade.


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

"also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity"

Imagine the possibilities of a terrorist organization that enjoys diplomatic immunity, e.g. the PLO. Imagine what you could smuggle into this country in diplomatic bags, which means stuff that could blow up, or stuff that could make you sick. So when car bombs start going off in American cities we'll have no one to arrest and prosecute.

Georgia Student Told 'Lose Christianity or Face Expulsion'

'Lose Christianity or face expulsion'

Georgia student told to read 'gay' lit, attend 'pride parade,' change beliefs


A lawsuit against Augusta State University in Georgia alleges school officials essentially gave a graduate student in counseling the choice of giving up her Christian beliefs or being expelled from the graduate program.

School officials Mary Jane Anderson-Wiley, Paulette Schenck and Richard Deaner demanded student Jen Keeton, 24, go through a "remediation" program after she asserted homosexuality is a behavioral choice, not a "state of being" as a professor said, according to the complaint.

Also named as defendants in the case that developed in May and June are other administrators and the university system's board of regents.

The remediation program was to include "sensitivity training" on homosexual issues, additional outside study on literature promoting homosexuality and the plan that she attend a "gay pride parade" and report on it.

The lawsuit, filed by attorneys working with the Alliance Defense Fund, asserted the school cannot violate the Constitution by demanding that a person's beliefs be changed.

"ASU faculty have promised to expel Miss Keeton from the graduate Counselor Education program, not because of poor academic showing or demonstrated deficiencies in clinical performance, but simply because she has communicated both inside and outside the classroom that she holds to Christian ethical convictions on matters of human sexuality and gender identity," the law firm explained.

School spokeswoman Kathy Schose today declined to address the allegations in the case but agreed to discuss the counselor teaching program in general.

She cited the American Counseling Association's code of ethics and said students would be required to adopt its provisions.

"There is a code of ethics that govern counselors," she said. "They have to abide by the code of the profession."

Ethics codes generally govern behavior, and Schose denied the school was attempting to alter any student's beliefs or moral values.

But the lawsuit specifically charges the faculty members targeted Keeton's biblically based belief system and values, not her behavior regarding the treatment of any clients, which had not yet happened.

"Schenck told Miss Keeton that it was unethical for her to believe that her convictions should also be shared by other persons. … Schenck explained that while Miss Keeton was free to have points of view about how she personally should conduct and define herself, she may not believe that others should adopt the standards she personally is convinced are true," the lawsuit said

Anderson-Wiley confirmed that Miss Keeton will not be able to successfully complete the remediation plan and thus complete the ASU counseling program unless she commits to affirming the propriety of gay and lesbian relationships if such an opportunity arises in her future professional efforts," it continued.

ADF Senior Counsel David French contended a public university student "shouldn't be threatened with expulsion for being a Christian and refusing to publicly renounce her faith, but that's exactly what's happening here."

"Simply put, the university is imposing thought reform," he said. "Abandoning one's own religious beliefs should not be a precondition at a public university for obtaining a degree. This type of leftist zero-tolerance policy is in place at far too many universities, and it must stop. Jennifer's only crime was to have the beliefs that she does."

Keeton's own e-mail response to the faculty members who allegedly were pressuring her to adopt a pro-homosexual belief system defines the dispute.

"At times you said that I must alter my beliefs because they are unethical. … other times you said that I can keep my beliefs so long as they are only personal and I don't believe that anyone else should believe like me. But that is just another way of saying that I must alter my beliefs, because my beliefs are about absolute truth. ….. in order to finish the counseling program you are requiring me to alter my objective beliefs and also to commit now that if I ever may have a client who wants me to affirm their decision to have an abortion or engage in gay, lesbian, or transgender behavior, I will do that. I can't alter my biblical beliefs, and I will not affirm the morality of those behaviors in a counseling situation," she wrote.
Faculty members had demanded she "attend at least three workshops … which emphasize … diversity training sensitive toward working with GLBTQ populations." They also wanted her to "develop" her knowledge of homosexuality by reading 10 articles and increasing her exposure to homosexuals and lesbians by attending "the Gay Pride Parade."

According to the complaint documentation, which also seeks a preliminary injunction in the case, Keeton asked Anderson-Wiley how her Christian convictions are any less acceptable than those of a Buddhist or Muslim student. Anderson-Wiley responded, "Christians see this population as sinners."

The complaint alleges Anderson-Wiley specifically told Keeton she was being asked to alter some of her beliefs. The "remediation" program included a statement that Keeton would be dismissed from the program if she chose not to comply, the lawsuit said.

"Unless and until defendant's unconstitutional speech-regulating policies and threatened … actions against Miss Keeton are enjoined, Miss Keeton will suffer and continue to suffer irreparable injury to her constitutional rights," the lawsuit said.

Among the alleged violations of the First and Fourteenth Amendments are viewpoint discrimination, compelled speech, equal protection and freedom of speech, it said.

"By conditioning Miss Keeton's continued enrollment in the ASU school counselor masters degree program on her waiver of rights to speech and free exercise of religion … by requiring that she alter her beliefs and speech, and that she … commit to affirm in a hypothetical future context the ethical propriety of transgender and homosexual identification and behavior by others, as well as other values and behaviors she now disapproves, and which violate her religion convictions, defendants have imposed an unconstitutional condition on Miss Keeton," the complaint alleges.
"The First Amendment never permits the government to penalize beliefs in this manner," the complaint said.

The ADF said it also is litigating a case involving a Georgia counselor fired by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because she would not agree to affirm homosexual behavior. While an earlier similar case at Missouri State has been resolved, there is another in which Eastern Michigan University is defendant on similar allegations.

Barack Hussein Obama Upgrades Status of Palestinian Mission in Washington

A sign of America's determination to play an active role in bringing about an end to Israel's 43-year-old military occupation of Palestinian lands and the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

Obama grants 'Delegation Status' to terrorst group Palestinian Liberation Organization...PLO flag may fly over embassy in Washington.

U..S. Upgrades Status of Palestinian Mission in Washington

In a stunning move, the Obama administration has upgraded the status of the terrorist organization the PLO, the Palestinian Liberation Organization, to that of 'Delegation General' which became effective on July 20, 2010. To anyone watching and wondering just whose side that Obama is really on, there can from this point on be no longer any doubt of that. Obama intends to carve up Israel like a Thanksgiving day pie, and liberally award the pieces to the Arabs.

"The United States State Department has upgraded the Palestinian Liberation Organization's mission in Washington, the PLO's U.S. representative said on Thursday. The upgrade, which will give the PLO Mission to the U.S. the status of 'Delegation General', became effective beginning July 20, 2010.

Ambassador Maen Rashid Areikat, the PLO's representative to the United States, said that the decision was preceded by several consultations made over the past year between the PLO Mission and the Obama administration. In addition to the name change, the PLO office will now be able to fly the Palestinian flag - although there was some doubt that the organization would gain permission to hoist the Palestinian colors from its headquarters, which it shares with other tenants.

Areikat said he hoped the upgrade was "a sign of America's determination to play an active role in bringing about an end to Israel's 43-year-old military occupation of Palestinian lands and the creation of an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital". Haaretz

We have a terrorist in power in our White House. He is doing everything he can and VERY fast too, to make our country no longer the America we have loved so much. And his hate for Jews and Israel is a driving force.

Dermocrat Rep. Charlie Rangel Charged With Ethics Violations

Rep. Charlie Rangel charged with ethics violations. Rangel speaks to reporters in the Rayburn Room of the U.S. Capitol on possible Ethics Violations. Here Rangel scolds Luke Russert of MSNBC for what he feels was a dumb question regarding his political future.

New York Post

A House investigative committee on Thursday charged New York Rep. Charles Rangel with multiple ethics violations, a blow to the former Ways and Means chairman and an election-year headache for Democrats.

The committee did not immediately specify the charges against the Democrat, who has served in the House for some 40 years and is fourth in House seniority. The announcement by a four-member panel of the House ethics committee sends the case to a House trial, where a separate eight-member panel of Republicans and Democrats will decide whether the violations can be proved by clear and convincing evidence.
Rangel led the tax-writing Ways and Means panel until he stepped aside last March after the ethics committee criticized him in a separate case — finding that he should have known corporate money was paying for his trips to two Caribbean conferences.

Officials said that in the current case, the committee and Rangel’s attorney tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a settlement. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private discussions. A settlement would have required Rangel to agree that he violated ethics rules.

The investigation of Rangel has focused on:

His use of official stationery to raise money for the Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service at City College of New York.

Whether he had the Ways and Means Committee consider legislation that would benefit donors to the Rangel Center at the same time the congressman solicited donations or pledges.

Preserved a tax shelter for an oil drilling company, Nabors Industries, which has a chief executive who donated money to the center while Rangel’s committee considered the loophole legislation.

Used four rent-controlled apartment units in New York City, when the city’s rent stabilization program is supposed to apply to one’s primary residence. This raises the question of how all the units could be primary residences. One was a campaign office, raising the separate question of whether the rent break was an improper gift.

Whether Rangel, as required, publicly reported information on the financing and rental of his ownership interest in a unit within the Punta Cana Yacht Club in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Rangel also had to pay back taxes on the rental income.

Intentionally failed to report — when required — hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in assets. The amended disclosure reports added a credit union IRA, mutual fund accounts and stock.

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

Hmmmm did I just see a pig fly by???? Or hell freeze over maybe?

"The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history," ~ Nancy Pelosi.

Far from fulfilling that promise, Nancy Pelosi and company represent the filthiest, most corrupt den of jackals that this country has ever seen.

"Sources said the committee and Rangel's attorney attempted unsuccessfully to negotiate a settlement to end the case."

It must be very bad if they charged one of their own with ethics violations!

Obama to Allow Tax Cuts for Wealthy to Expire

Mark Levin excoriates Geithner

White House to Allow Tax Cuts for Wealthy to Expire


Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said the Obama administration will allow tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans to expire on schedule despite calls from a small but increasingly vocal group of Democrats to delay any tax increases.

Geithner said the White House will allow taxes on top earners to increase on Jan. 1, 2011, as part of an effort to help bring down the mounting budget deficit. He said the White House still plans to extend tax cuts for middle- and lower-income Americans and expects to undertake a broader tax overhaul next year.

"We believe it is appropriate to let those tax cuts that go to the most fortunate expire," Mr. Geithner said at a breakfast with reporters, hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

He also rejected concerns voiced by business groups and many Republicans that the administration's economic policies are creating uncertainty and holding back private investment. "Business always wants their taxes lower and always wants to live with less regulation," he said, adding that U.S. firms are "doing very well…competing around the world."


Pelosi rejects extending Bush tax cuts for wealthy

Wall Street Journal

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday rejected extending tax cuts for the wealthiest tax bracket that are set to expire at the end of the year.

Pelosi took off the table a short-term extension of those cuts floated by some lawmakers in her own party.

"No," the speaker said at her weekly press conference when asked if the cuts for the highest bracket should be extended. "Our position has been that we support middle-class tax cuts."

The cuts implemented by President George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress are set to expire at the end of the year, allowing income tax rates to spring upward. Democrats have begun exploring a potential extension of the cuts, but only for households earning less than $250,000 per year.

"I believe the high-end tax cuts did not create any jobs, increased the deficit and should be repealed," she said.

A number of Democrats in the House and Senate in recent days have said they'd favor extending all of the tax cuts, partly because of the economy and partly because they fear any tax increases would be used against them in this fall's elections.

GOP lawmakers have hammered away at Democrats over the expiring cuts, incorporating them into their election year argument that Democrats would seek to raise taxes.

One option discussed by members of the House Ways and Means Committee would be to raise tax rates on families making more than $250,000, but delaying the rate increase until 2012.


FOX News contributor Andrea Tantaros on the future of the Bush tax cuts as some Democrats begin to support an extension of those cuts.

Bush Tax Cuts Roil Democrats

Wall Street Journal

Two more Senate Democrats called for extending tax cuts for all earners—including those with the highest incomes—in what appears to be a breakdown of the party's consensus on the how to handle the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts.

Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.) said in an interview Wednesday that Congress shouldn't allow taxes on the wealthy to rise until the economy is on a sounder footing.
Sen. Ben Nelson (D., Neb.) said through a spokesman that he also supported extending all the expiring tax cuts for now, adding that he wanted to offset the impact on federal deficits as much as possible.

They are the second and third Senate Democrats to come out publicly in recent days in favor of extending all the tax breaks for the time being. Sen. Evan Bayh (D., Ind.) made similar comments last week.

"As a general rule, you don't want to be cutting spending or raising taxes in the midst of a downturn," Mr. Conrad said. "We know that very soon we've got to pivot and focus on the deficit. But it probably is too soon to cut spending or raise taxes."

The comments from the senators represent a departure from what appeared to be an emerging unified Democratic stance on the Bush tax cuts, which held that those for the wealthiest Americans should be allowed to expire.

President Barack Obama and most Democrats want to extend only the breaks benefiting taxpayers who make $250,000 or less.

Allowing breaks for higher earners to expire would push the top individual tax rate to 39.6% from 35%, and would raise rates on capital gains and dividends, too.

The breaks enacted in 2001 and 2003, which affect taxpayers of all income levels, expire at the end of this year.


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

The Bush tax cuts have been so demonized by the left .

The bulk of Democrats want to kick the people while they are down and then they want to keep them down. They do this in the hopes that people will believe that they can’t survive without them. That’s the problem with professional politicians........they never had a job in their life and couldn’t survive without Washington.

Now is the time for Republicans to come forward with a lot more tax cuts for the middle class - beyond just extending the Bush tax cuts. Let the Democrats go on record as opposing more tax cuts for the little people they claim to care so much about.

MOST Corrupt Congress The Pelosi-Reid Congress Hits New Record Low – 11% Approval

Not feeling particularly high on Congress? Join the crowd. A Gallup poll conducted July 8-11 has public confidence in Congress down to 11 percent, the lowest score in its "Confidence in Institutions" survey since 1973.

Gallup’s 2010 Confidence in Institutions poll finds Congress ranking dead last out of the 16 institutions rated this year. Eleven percent of Americans say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in Congress, down from 17% in 2009 and a percentage point lower than the previous low for Congress, recorded in 2008…

Underscoring Congress’ image problem, half of Americans now say they have “very little” or no confidence in Congress, up from 38% in 2009 — and the highest for any institution since Gallup first asked this question in 1973. Previous near-50% readings include 48% found for the presidency in 2008, and 49% for the criminal justice system in 1994.

This year’s poll also finds a 15-point drop in high confidence in the presidency, to 36% from 51% in June 2009. Over the same period, President Barack Obama’s approval rating fell by 11 points, from 58% to 47%.

Hoyer ridicules Bohener's 'read the bill' initiative

By Michael O'Brien

The Hill

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) ridiculed on Thursday an effort pushed by Republicans to allow lawmakers more time to read legislation.

Hoyer dismissed a proposal by House GOP leader John Boehner (Ohio) and other Republicans to require 72 hours to read legislation before a final vote on it is scheduled.

Boehner launched a "read the bill" effort on Thursday to promote the GOP's proposed reform, which the minority leader has said would be a key reform he'd make should he become speaker of the House.

"His hypothetical is so unreasonable ... that it doesn't bear commenting on," Hoyer said, mocking Republicans' chances of taking back the House in this fall's elections, a development which would make Boehner speaker.
"This is beating a drum that's not relevant," the second-ranking House Democrat said.
"The reality of which he speaks is not likely," Hoyer added, again dismissing Republicans' chances of winning back the House.
“Given the endless string of broken promises and backroom deals that comprise House Democrats’ job-killing record, I can see why the Majority Leader would find letting the American people – and Members of Congress – read a bill before it passes, 'unreasonable,'" Boehner spokesman Michael Steel shot back. "But this is not the Democrats’ House, it is the people’s House, and the people have a right to know what we’re voting on.”

Wild Thing's comment......

OMG, what nerve Steny Hoyer has. He thinks he and the rest of the democrats in power and KINGS. Well except for Queens i.e. Barney Frank, Pelosi and might as well throw in Obama from what I have read about his past.

Face of Defense: Marine Miraculously Survives Enemy Bomb Blast

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Matt Garst absorbed the direct blast of an improvised explosive device in Shorsurak, Afghanistan, June 23, 2010. Fortunately for Garst, the bomb’s explosives didn’t completely detonate. After spending a day to rest and attend to some aches and pains, Garst continued his mission.



July 21, 2010

Marine Corps Cpl. Matt Garst continues to do his job here, thanks to an enemy-emplaced roadside bomb that malfunctioned.

Few people survive stepping on an improvised explosive device. Even fewer walk away the same day after directly absorbing the force of the blast, but on June 23, Garst did just that.

A squad leader with 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Garst was leading his troops that day on a patrol in Southern Shorsurak, Afghanistan, to establish a vehicle checkpoint in support of Operation New Dawn.

The group was four miles from Lima Company’s newly established observation post when they approached an abandoned compound close to where they needed to set up their checkpoint. The compound would serve well as an operating base — a place for the squad to set up communications and rotate Marines in and out of. But first, it had to be secured.

As they swept the area with a metal detector, the buried IED registered no metallic signature – it was too deep under the soil. Two men walked over it without it detonating.

At 6 feet 2 inches tall and 260 pounds with all his gear on, Garst is easily the largest man in his squad by 30 or 40 pounds — just enough extra weight to trigger the IED buried deep in hard-packed soil.

Lance Cpl. Edgar Jones, a combat engineer with the squad, found a pressure plate inside the compound and hollered to Garst, asking what he should do with it. Garst turned around to answer and he stepped on the bomb.

“I can just barely remember the boom,” Garst recalled. “I remember the start of a loud noise and then I blacked out.”

Since Garst's encounter with the IED, his tale has spread through the rest of the battalion, and as often happens in combat units, the story mutates and becomes more and more extraordinary.

What really happened even eludes Garst. When he came to, he was standing on his feet holding his weapon, turning to see the remnants of the blast and wondering why his squad had a look on their faces as if they’d seen a ghost.

Marines in Lima Company think Garst is the luckiest guy in the battalion, and while that may seem a fair assessment, it actually was the enemy’s shoddy work that left Garst alive and relatively uninjured. The three-liters of homemade explosive had only partially detonated.

Marines who witnessed the event from inside the compound caught glimpses of Garst’s feet flailing through the air just above the other side of the building’s eight-foot-high walls. The explosion knocked him at least fifteen feet away, where he landed on his limp head and shoulders before immediately standing back up.

Not quite sure of what had just happened, Garst turned back toward the blast, now nothing but a column of dirt and smoke rising toward the sun.

Garst said he’d immediately realized that he’d encountered an IED.

“Then I thought, ‘Well I’m standing. That’s good,’” he recalled.

Garst then directed his troops to establish a security perimeter while letting them know that he was OK. Garst also radioed back to base, calling for an explosive ordnance disposal team and a quick-reaction force.

“I called them and said, ‘Hey, I just got blown up. Get ready,’” Garst recalled. “The guy thought I was joking at first. ‘You got blown up? You’re not calling me. Get out of here!’”

Once the area was cleared, Garst led his squad the four miles back to their observation post — just hours after he’d been buffeted by the IED blast.

“I wasn’t going to let anybody else take my squad back after they’d been there for me,” he said. “That’s my job.”

Garst awakened the next day with a pounding headache, he recalled, and felt as sore as he’d ever been in his life.

“Just getting up from trying to sleep was painful,” he said.

But he saw no reason being sore should slow him down. After a day of rest, Garst was back out on patrol, showing his Marines and the enemy that just like his resolve, he is unbreakable.

Obama Adviser: U.S. 'ideal place for renewal of Islam'

Obama adviser: U.S. 'ideal place for renewal of Islam'

Religion aide closely linked to imam seeking to build Ground Zero mosque


A religion adviser to President Obama has close ties to the imam who wants to build a 13-story Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero. The two have been documented together discussing America as "the ideal place for a renewal of Islam," WND has learned.

In February, Obama named a Chicago Muslim, Eboo Patel, to his Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Patel is the founder and executive director of Chicago-based Interfaith Youth Core, which says it promotes pluralism by teaming people of different faiths on service projects.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim leader behind the plan to build the Islamic center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero, wrote the afterword to Patel's 2006 book, "Building the Interfaith Youth Movement: Beyond Dialogue to Action."

Patel is listed as one of 15 "Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow" on the website for the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims, or ASAM, which is led by Rauf.

In Patel's 2007 book, "Saving Each Other, Saving Ourselves," he recounts discussing with Rauf the future of Islam in the U.S.

Rauf "understood the vision immediately and suggested that I visit him and his wife, Daisy Khan, at their home the following evening," Patel recalled.

Khan founded the ASAM with her husband and has aided him in his plans for the mosque near Ground Zero.

"The living room of their apartment on the Upper West Side was set up like a mosque, with prayer rugs stretched from wall to wall," wrote Patel in his book.
Continued Patel: "I arrived at dusk, prayed the maghrib prayer with Daisy and Imam Feisal and then talked with them about how America, with its unique combination of religious devotion and religious diversity, was the ideal place for a renewal of Islam."
"In the twentieth century, Catholicism and Judaism underwent profound transformations in America," Rauf observed. "I think, this century, in America, Islam will do the same."

Patel boasts of a "critical mass" of Muslims in the U.S.

"Islam is a religion that has always been revitalized by its migration," he wrote. "America is a nation that has been constantly rejuvenated by immigrants. There is now a critical mass of Muslims in America."

Patel last March wrote a Huffington Post piece referring to Obama's former "green jobs" czar Van Jones as a "faith hero."

"In my last post on Van, I called him an American patriot," wrote Patel. "That is high praise in my book. But watching Van's speech at the NAACP, I have another title for him, one that I reserve for the true giants of history. Van Jones is a faith hero."

Jones resigned in September after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks. Jones also called for "resistance" against the U.S.

Jones previously stated his advocacy for green jobs was part of a broader movement to destroy the U.S. capitalist system.

WND reported that one day after the 9/11 attacks, Jones led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of "U.S. imperialism" around the world.

Rauf, meanwhile, has caused a stir with his proposed $100 million, 13-story Islamic cultural center and mosque near the corner of Park Place and West Broadway.

Rauf sparked controversy earlier this month when he refused during a live radio interview to condemn violent jihad groups as terrorists. Rauf repeatedly refused on the air to affirm the U.S. designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization or call the Muslim Brotherhood extremists.

The Brotherhood openly seeks to spread Islam around the world, while Hamas is committed to Israel's destruction and is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks aimed at Jewish civilian population centers.

During the interview, Rauf was also asked who he believes was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks.

"There's no doubt," stated Rauf. "The general perception all over the world was it was created by people who were sympathetic to Osama bin Laden. Whether they were part of the killer group or not, these are details that need to be left to the law-enforcement experts."
Rauf has been on record several times blaming U.S. policies for the Sept. 11 attacks. He has been quoted refusing to admit Muslims carried out the attacks.

Referring to the Sept. 11 attacks, Rauf told CNN, "U.S. policies were an accessory to the crime that happened. We (the U.S.) have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. Osama bin Laden was made in the USA."

Madeline Brooks, a reporter who attended a sermon this year by Rauf, quoted the Islamic leader as stating "some people say it was Muslims who attacked on 9/11."

Rauf's 2004 book had two different titles, one in English and the second in Arabic. In the U.S., his book was called "What's right with America is what's right with Islam."

The same book, published in Arabic, bore the name "The Call From the WTC Rubble: Islamic Da'wah From the Heart of America Post-9/11."

Gov. Bobby Jindal To Obama "Let Us Get Back To Work!"

Gov. Bobby Jindal at the Rally for Economic Survival in Lafayette, speaking out against the Obama Administration's job-killing offshore drilling moratorium.


T-shirts with slogans like "Drill Baby Drill" and "No Moratorium" were common sights in Lafayette on Wednesday as thousands of people rallied against the federal moratorium on deepwater oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

Thousands of people opposed to the deepwater drilling moratorium showed up for the Rally for Economic Survival at the Cajundome in Lafayette on Wednesday.

About 15,000 people packed the Cajundome on the campus of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette as Gov. Bobby Jindal and a stream of speakers blasted the six-month moratorium declared after BP's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The "Rally for Economic Survival," orchestrated by a coalition of business organizations, was set in the heart of Louisiana's oil patch, where thousands of jobs are tied to oil companies or companies that serve them.

The crowd stood in silence as the names of the 11 people killed in the April 20 explosion of the BP-operated rig Deepwater Horizon flashed on the stadium screens. They were rarely silent after that -- cheering each statement against the moratorium and booing loudly for mentions of President Barack Obama or the federal administration.

"The president is not very popular around here these days," said Dustin Hebert, 52, who works for a company that finishes pipe used on the rigs. "We are losing business, and we can't make any plans for next year or the year after."
"I'm hoping Obama gets the message," said Allen Comeaux, 52, a truck driver whose customers include oil companies. "It's not just the people out on the rigs, it's the people driving trucks, delivering services, selling food. Everyone down here is beholden to oil one way or another."

The offshore petroleum industry and companies that serve it employ about 100,000 people in Louisiana, according to the LSU Center for Energy Studies.

MORE of Jindal's speech


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

Watching this video of Bobby Jindal – you can tell he’s passionate about stopping the moratorium on drilling. His state is under assault by the Obama administration. Guys like Jindal are the Republicans we need to support. This is awesome.

Insane Democrat Rep. Pete Stark Wants To TAX YOUR MONEY

Currency tax: A way to invest in our future (Rep. Pete Stark)

The Hill

Each day, $4 trillion dollars of currency are traded. For international businesses and travelers, trading dollars for other currencies serve a legitimate purpose.

Today, I introduced H.R. 5783, the Investing in Our Future Act. My legislation would simply impose a small tax — of 0.005 percent — on these currency transactions. The money raised would be put toward investments in children, global health and climate change mitigation.

For the average person or business, this small tax will hardly be noticed. But, due to the extreme speculation that takes place, it would raise significant funds. Studies estimate a worldwide 0.005 percent tax on dollar transactions would raise $28 billion a year and reduce currency speculation by 14 percent.

Here at home, the funds from this fee would be used to improve the quality and affordability of child care. This funding would provide more child care options, so working families can obtain the quality care their children need to begin school ready to learn.

Internationally, the bill would create a U.S. fund to assist developing countries with the impacts of global warming. At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December, President Obama pledged to fund our country's commitment to mitigating the effects of climate change. This bill would make that promise real.

Finally, the legislation would create a Global Health Trust Fund to fight HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis and other diseases that kill millions of people each year in developing nations. This money will fund treatments and prevention for these diseases, as well as research aimed at eradicating them altogether.

Pete justifies the tax by saying it’s so small we’d hardly notice it. And besides, the money would provide more child care options , create a fund to help OTHER COUNTRIES with the impact of global warming (are you fuming yet?) and create a fund to fight AIDS and other diseases IN OTHER COUNTRIES.

(R) Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming speaking from the Senate floor speaking about Obama's current agenda which now "unexpectedly" contradicts his previous campaign promises. The most egregious being the individual mandate tax.

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

GOP Sen. John Barrasso is also a medical doctor .

Obama is a premeditated, pathological liar. He and his evil ilk were constantly denying that people would lose their insurance, or that there would be rationing. He promised costs would be reduced. All lies.

Lindsey Graham Is Lone "Republican" to Vote For Kagan

Lindsey Graham Is Lone Republican to Vote For Kagan

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) became the lone Republican to vote in favor of the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on Tuesday voted in favor of the nomination of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, making him the only GOP member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to back Obama’s pick for the high court.

The panel, made up of 12 Democrats and seven Republicans, approved Kagan’s nomination by a vote of 13-6. Every Democrat on the panel supported her, while every Republican other than Graham opposed her.

The nomination will go to a full Senate vote within the next few weeks.

“I’m going to vote for her because I believe the last election had consequences,” Graham said in announcing his support for Kagan. “This president chose someone who is qualified, who has the experience and knowledge to serve on this court … and understands the difference between being a liberal judge and a politican.”

He was the only Republican member of the committee to support nominee Sonia Sotomayor in 2009.

The senior Republican on the committee, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., formally announced his opposition to Kagan’s nomination in a USA Today op-ed earlier Tuesday.

“Throughout her career, Ms. Kagan has placed her politics above the law," Sessions wrote. “She has never been a judge, never tried a case before a jury and has practiced law for only three years. She is the least experienced nominee in the last half-century.”

Liberal Journalists Target FOX News and Want Government To Shut It Down

Tucker Carlson broke the news last night on Hannity that the far left members of Journolist targeted FOX News and wanted it shut down by the government.

Publisher Neil Patel chats with Megyn Kelly about JournoList

The Daily Caller explosive story about JournoList, publisher Neil Patel chats with “America Live” host Megyn Kelly about a few thing more incendiary than sports.

“What we have found,” said Neil, ” are discussions in there directly working to try and elect Barack Obama and doing so in the most … loathsome ways.”


Documents show media plotting to kill stories about Rev. Jeremiah Wright

By Jonathan Strong

The Daily Caller

It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign.

The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public – to dissociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?”

Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.”

Others went further. According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”
Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”
“Richard Kim got this right above: ‘a horrible glimpse of general election press strategy.’ He’s dead on,” Tomasky continued. “We need to throw chairs now, try as hard as we can to get the call next time. Otherwise the questions in October will be exactly like this. This is just a disease.”

(In an interview Monday, Tomasky defended his position, calling the ABC debate an example of shoddy journalism.)

Thomas Schaller, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun as well as a political science professor, upped the ante from there. In a post with the subject header, “why don’t we use the power of this list to do something about the debate?” Schaller proposed coordinating a “smart statement expressing disgust” at the questions Gibson and Stephanopoulos had posed to Obama.
“It would create quite a stir, I bet, and be a warning against future behavior of the sort,” Schaller wrote.
Tomasky approved. “YES. A thousand times yes,” he exclaimed.
The members began collaborating on their open letter. Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones rejected an early draft, saying, “I’d say too short. In my opinion, it doesn’t go far enough in highlighting the inanity of some of [Gibson's] and [Stephanopoulos’s] questions. And it doesn’t point out their factual inaccuracies …Our friends at Media Matters probably have tons of experience with this sort of thing, if we want their input.”

Jared Bernstein, who would go on to be Vice President Joe Biden’s top economist when Obama took office, helped, too. The letter should be “Short, punchy and solely focused on vapidity of gotcha,” Bernstein wrote.

In the midst of this collaborative enterprise, Holly Yeager, now of the Columbia Journalism Review, dropped into the conversation to say “be sure to read” a column in that day’s Washington Post that attacked the debate.

Columnist Joe Conason weighed in with suggestions. So did Slate contributor David Greenberg, and David Roberts of the website Grist. Todd Gitlin, a professor of journalism at Columbia University, helped too.

Journolist members signed the statement and released it April 18, calling the debate “a revolting descent into tabloid journalism and a gross disservice to Americans concerned about the great issues facing the nation and the world.”

The letter caused a brief splash and won the attention of the New York Times. But only a week later, Obama – and the journalists who were helping him – were on the defensive once again.

Jeremiah Wright was back in the news after making a series of media appearances. At the National Press Club, Wright claimed Obama had only repudiated his beliefs for “political reasons.” Wright also reiterated his charge that the U.S. federal government had created AIDS as a means of committing genocide against African Americans.

It was another crisis, and members of Journolist again rose to help Obama.

Chris Hayes of the Nation posted on April 29, 2008, urging his colleagues to ignore Wright. Hayes directed his message to “particularly those in the ostensible mainstream media” who were members of the list.
The Wright controversy, Hayes argued, was not about Wright at all. Instead, “It has everything to do with the attempts of the right to maintain control of the country.”
Hayes castigated his fellow liberals for criticizing Wright. “All this hand wringing about just how awful and odious Rev. Wright remarks are just keeps the hustle going.”
“Our country disappears people. It tortures people. It has the blood of as many as one million Iraqi civilians — men, women, children, the infirmed — on its hands. You’ll forgive me if I just can’t quite dredge up the requisite amount of outrage over Barack Obama’s pastor,” Hayes wrote.

Hayes urged his colleagues – especially the straight news reporters who were charged with covering the campaign in a neutral way – to bury the Wright scandal. “I’m not saying we should all rush en masse to defend Wright. If you don’t think he’s worthy of defense, don’t defend him! What I’m saying is that there is no earthly reason to use our various platforms to discuss what about Wright we find objectionable,” Hayes said.

(Reached by phone Monday, Hayes argued his words then fell on deaf ears. “I can say ‘hey I don’t think you guys should cover this,’ but no one listened to me.”)

Katha Pollitt – Hayes’s colleague at the Nation – didn’t disagree on principle, though she did sound weary of the propaganda. “I hear you. but I am really tired of defending the indefensible. The people who attacked Clinton on Monica were prissy and ridiculous, but let me tell you it was no fun, as a feminist and a woman, waving aside as politically irrelevant and part of the vast rightwing conspiracy Paula, Monica, Kathleen, Juanita,” Pollitt said.

“Part of me doesn’t like this shit either,” agreed Spencer Ackerman, then of the Washington Independent. “But what I like less is being governed by racists and warmongers and criminals.”

Ackerman went on:

I do not endorse a Popular Front, nor do I think you need to. It’s not necessary to jump to Wright-qua-Wright’s defense. What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.

And I think this threads the needle. If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us. Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? This makes *them* sputter with rage, which in turn leads to overreaction and self-destruction.

Ackerman did allow there were some Republicans who weren’t racists. “We’ll know who doesn’t deserve this treatment — Ross Douthat, for instance — but the others need to get it.” He also said he had begun to implement his plan. “I previewed it a bit on my blog last week after Commentary wildly distorted a comment Joe Cirincione made to make him appear like (what else) an antisemite. So I said: why is it that so many on the right have such a problem with the first viable prospective African-American president?”

Several members of the list disagreed with Ackerman – but only on strategic grounds.

“Spencer, you’re wrong,” wrote Mark Schmitt, now an editor at the American Prospect. “Calling Fred Barnes a racist doesn’t further the argument, and not just because Juan Williams is his new black friend, but because that makes it all about character. The goal is to get to the point where you can contrast some _thing_ — Obama’s substantive agenda — with this crap.”

(In an interview Monday, Schmitt declined to say whether he thought Ackerman’s plan was wrong. “That is not a question I’m going to answer,” he said.)

Kevin Drum, then of Washington Monthly, also disagreed with Ackerman’s strategy. “I think it’s worth keeping in mind that Obama is trying (or says he’s trying) to run a campaign that avoids precisely the kind of thing Spencer is talking about, and turning this into a gutter brawl would probably hurt the Obama brand pretty strongly. After all, why vote for him if it turns out he’s not going change the way politics works?”

But it was Ackerman who had the last word. “Kevin, I’m not saying OBAMA should do this. I’m saying WE should do this.”


Reporters at Pravda weren’t this insufferable

By Andrew Breitbart

The Daily Caller

Journalists love whistleblowers. Just not when the whistle is blown on them. Journalists love transparency. As long as they’re not the ones being exposed.

No journalistic steadfast rule is unbendable when it comes to justifying and protecting the racket that is modern journalism, specifically, political journalism in the United States today. The ends justify the means for the Democrat Media Complex. They lie when they claim to be objective. They lie when they claim to be unbiased, because these so called “truth seekers” are guilty of engaging in open political warfare. And when the whistle is blown, they simply double down. “Journolist” — like Media Matters, but more insidious, if that’s possible — is an attempt to put the genie back in the bottle.

Talk radio and the Internet have allowed outsiders the ability to challenge a multiple generational shift from journalism being about the story, to journalism being crafted toward a partisan end. From Newsweek killing the Lewinsky story to the Swift Boat veterans (until the undermedia pressure got too big) to the Dan Rather implosion to the open attempt to keep the Al Gore masseuse story under wraps to the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter debacle to the Van Jones admission of missing the story to the networks ignoring the ACORN video footage to the media playing up trumped up charges of racism in the Tea Party — while ignoring exculpatory evidence to the mother of all media-as-political weaponry: the non-vetting of candidate Obama, the mainstream media has shown that it is in an ideological death spiral. And the ground is right here.

American journalism died today. What The Daily Caller has unearthed proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that most media organizations are either complicit by participation in the treachery that is Journolist, or are guilty of sitting back and watching Alinsky warfare being waged against all that challenged the progressive orthodoxy. The scandal predictably involves journalists posing as professors posing as experts. But dressed down they are nothing but street thugs. They deserve the deepest levels of public consternation. Will they get it?

The only way that the media will recover from the horrifying discoveries found in the Journolist is to investigate and investigate until every guilty reporter, professor and institution is laid bare begging America for forgiveness. Will they do it?

If the powers that be don’t comply with this demand, we can always call Jonathan Alter and Eric Alterman racists.*


E-mails reveal Post reporter savaging conservatives, rooting for Democrats

By Jonathan Strong

The Daily Caller

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh famously said he hoped President Obama would “fail” in January, 2009. Almost a year later, when Limbaugh was rushed to the hospital with chest pains, Washington Post reporter David Weigel had a wish of his own. “I hope he fails,” Weigel cracked to fellow liberal reporters on the “Journolist” email list-serv.

“Too soon?” he wondered.

Weigel was hired this spring by the Post to cover the conservative movement. Almost from the beginning there have been complaints that his coverage betrays a personal animus toward conservatives. E-mails obtained by the Daily Caller suggest those complaints have merit.

Conservatives Karl Rove and Fred Barnes respond to Journolist ‘racist’ post

By Chris Moody

The Daily Caller

The Daily Caller revealed Monday that then-Washington Independent reporter Spencer Ackerman argued during the 2008 presidential campaign that the best way to combat criticism of President Obama’s former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright was to accuse those who raised the issue of racism.

“If the right forces us all to either defend Wright or tear him down, no matter what we choose, we lose the game they’ve put upon us,” Ackerman wrote on the Journolist listserv in April 2008. “Instead, take one of them — Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

While many members of the group voiced concerns about Ackerman on strategic grounds, there seemed to be no clear disagreement with the substance. The strongest repudiation came from Mark Schmitt, now at the liberal magazine the American Prospect, who said the tactic of calling conservatives racist would do nothing to advance the argument.

Weekly Standard editor Fred Barnes and former White House senior adviser Karl Rove told The Daily Caller they were disappointed that there was not more criticism from other Journolist members for Ackerman’s plan of attack.

“I’d like to hear an explanation from those who participated in the Journolist about this,” Barnes said. “Why didn’t they quit the thing when smearing other journalists to help Barack Obama was advocated? Why didn’t they denounce the idea in unison?”

Rove played down the notion that members of the mainstream press agreed with Ackerman but he said he found it curious that such talk was tolerated within the group. It was important, he added, not to judge the motives of members who chose not to respond.

“I thought it was a revealing insight in the attitude of one minor player in the D.C. world of journalism,” Rove said of Ackerman’s comments. “It’s an even more important insight into a broader group of more prominent journalists that they seem to be willing to tolerate the suggestion that they should all tell a deliberate lie or that they should take somebody’s head and shove it through a plate glass window. I would hope that somebody would say, ‘Mr. Ackerman, do you really believe we ought to fabricate a lie about people just because we don’t agree with them?’”
Barnes added that even if there was an effort on the left to smear opponents as racists, the plan wouldn’t work.
“The charge has been made so often without any evidence that it has lost its sting,” he said. “It has become the last refuge of liberal scoundrels.”

Mother Jones magazine writer Kevin Drum, who participated in the Journolist discussion and worked for the Washington Monthly at the time, said in an interview Monday that charges of racism should only be used “sparingly.”

“It’s not something you should do unless you’re really, really sure,” he said.


And just a few snipets from Rush's show yesterday:

All right, there is a huge story out there today, but it could be even bigger, and it should be even bigger. It is from Chatsworth Osborne Jr.'s website, The Daily Caller, and it is about this Journolist, and what it shows is something that we have known all along, and that is that there's not just media coordination in order to advance the Democrat Party agenda and to rip and ridicule, criticize Republicans and conservatives. It's not just coordination. It is an outright propaganda campaign.

So liberals don't just lie, they lie to destroy people. No smear is too low or outrageous when it comes to conservatives.

So something that you and I have known instinctively all along has now been confirmed by the people at the Journolist, these people are in collusion. They're not journalists whatsoever. And any of you in this audience, if you are a journalism school graduates you ought to be ripped to shreds over this. There is a journalist conspiracy out there, we've all known it, it existed to elect Obama, it exists today to reelect Democrats and Obama, and it's done so for years and years and years.
So to say that this is just a small-time blogosphere that's involved in collusion is a big mistake. It's no accident Bob Schieffer has no idea about the New Black Panther Party. It's no accident that Charlie Gibson -- what was the story that he had no idea about while he was on vacation? ACORN. It was no accident Charlie Gibson didn't know about the ACORN tapes that Breitbart had uncovered. He didn't know about it. If it's not in TIME Magazine, if it's not on the other two networks or any of the three, if it's not on CNN, not in the New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, they don't know about it. They're insulated. They live and exist for each other. You and I are three times as informed as the so-called veneered fourth estate. You and I know more about what's going on in this country than they do, and they are the ones with the arrogant condescension looking down on all of us. The only way they can discredit us is to call us names.
The best way to say it is there is nothing that is media as you and I think of media. There are no reporters. The media is simply an arm of the left. It is the Democrat Party
Marxism, socialism, whatever you want to call it, it's the left -- and they are all considered to be members of the ruling class, and that ruling class has its agenda.


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


If the framers of the constitution were writing it today, instead of being concerned with separation of church and state, they would insist on separation of media and state.

Today our media is nothing more than a branch of the government and a tool for the destruction of our liberty.

With the media in this country, Obama has a thousand Goebbels. Hitler had one.

Soros-funded Terrorist, ACORN Pushed Felon Vote

Kaboom! Look who's really behind plan to steal election

Now Democrats in Congress pushing bill to restore rights to convicts


A federal bill that seeks to restore voting rights in national elections to felons released from prison has been a pet project of one of the most dangerous members of Bill Ayers' Weather Underground domestic-terrorist group, WND has learned.

Linda Evans, who herself served 15 years of a 40-year federal sentence, pushed the plan of registering convicted felons along with the radical Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. She is a recipient of the Soros Justice Fellowship, bestowed by philanthropist George Soros.

Evans was arrested in 1985 transporting 740 pounds of explosives, which she acknowledged was slated for use by the Weather Underground in bombings of U.S. government buildings. Targets of her terrorist group's activities included the U.S. Capitol building, the National War College, the Navy Yard Computer Center and Navy Yard Officers Club and the New York Patrolmen's Benevolent Association.

At a conference for Ayers' Students for a Democratic Society in late August 1969, Evans famously described being shown a Viet Cong antiaircraft gun, which she said she had cradled in her arms while stating she had wished for an American airplane to fly overhead. She reportedly closed with an emotional speech about being a communist, according to unclassified FBI files on Ayers' group.

President Clinton pardoned Evans in January 2001.

Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, reportedly was instrumental in securing Evans' pardon. As deputy attorney general under Clinton, The Washington Post credited him with being "the gatekeeper for presidential pardons." Holder reportedly was a key figure entrusted with the task of vetting Clinton's 176 last-minute pardons that included Evans.

After leaving prison, Evans became co-director of the San-Francisco-based nonprofit All of Us or None, a Saul-Alinsky-style national organizing initiative of prisoners, former prisoners and felons. The organization claims it is seeking to combat "the many forms of discrimination" faced by the prison community.

Evans since has been at the center of voter-registration drives for former prisoners, including drives organized alongside ACORN.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, for example, Evans' group sponsored chapters throughout California that held drives in Alameda, Sacramento, Orange, San Mateo, Los Angeles and San Diego counties.

"Laws that directly affect inmates will be decided this November, so please share this information and encourage them to vote," Evans was quoted as telling the San Francisco Bay View at the time.

In one August 2008 drive, Evans' group provided voter information in visitor lines at San Diego Central Jail as a joint effort with ACORN. The two organizations worked together on a slew of other voter-registration drives.

Evans' group led the charge in 2006 that took the debate about felons' voting rights in California to court. In December 2006, the California Court of Appeal ordered the secretary of state to inform election officials that "the only persons disqualified from voting are those who have been imprisoned in state prison, or who are on parole as a result of the conviction of a felony."

Now a federal bill seeks to restore voter rights to felons nationally. The Democracy Restoration Act was introduced by Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich. The bill would restore federal voting rights to felons who have served their sentences.

The information comes as a study released earlier this month by Minnesota Majority, a watchdog group, found the six-month election recount that determined Al Franken won the Minnesota Senate seat may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally.

The issue of felony registration is not the only controversy to be attached to Obama's 2008 campaign.

During the campaign, Obama promised to make comprehensive immigration reform a priority. In exchange for his vote on the health-care bill, Obama reiterated the pledge in June to Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, sponsor of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Bill, which seeks to document up to 12 million illegal immigrants inside the U.S.

As WND reported, a recent adviser to Obama whose union group is among the most frequent visitors to the White House, Eliseo Medina, declared granting citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants would expand the "progressive" electorate and help ensure a "progressive" governing coalition for the long term.

Medina, international executive vice president of Service Employees International Union, was referring specifically to Gutierrez's bill.

"We reform the immigration laws; it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters," stated Medina, speaking at a June 2009 Washington conference for America's Future Now!
Medina said that during the presidential election in November 2008, Latinos and immigrants "voted overwhelmingly for progressive candidates. Barack Obama got two out of every three voters that showed up.
"Can you imagine if we have, even the same ratio, two out of three? Can you imagine 8 million new voters who care about our issues and will be voting?" Medina asked. "We will be creating a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle."

SEIU is closely linked to ACORN. Former SEIU President Andrew Stern was the most frequently logged White House visitor, according to an official list released in October. Medina and SEIU are top supporters of Gutierrez's comprehensive immigration-reform bill.

During the most recent presidential campaign, Medina and Gutierrez served on Obama's National Latino Advisory Council. Also on the council was Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., the co-sponsor of Gutierrez's immigration-reform bill. Medina was a chief lobbyist credited with a change in the longstanding policy of the AFL-CIO, the largest union federation in the U.S. The union reversed its stance against illegal immigration in February 2000, instead calling for new amnesty for millions of illegals.

The New Zeal blog documented how Medina was honored in 2004 by Chicago's Democratic Socialists of America for his "vital role in the AFL-CIO's reassessment of its immigration policy." That year, Medina became a Democratic Socialists honorary chairman.

The Democratic Socialists also supported Gutierrez's 1998 bid for Congress. In the mid-1990s, Gutierrez served on the board of Illinois Public Action alongside a number of Democratic Socialists members, including Obama health-care adviser Quentin Young.

Here's what 'Obama money' is doing for you – in Kenya!

Here's what 'Obama money' is doing for you – in Kenya!

3 Republican congressmen reveal Barack secretly spent $23 million


An investigation by three Republican congressmen has revealed the Obama administration has secretly spent $23 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars in Kenya to fund a "Yes" vote on a constitutional referendum scheduled for Aug. 4 that would increase access to abortions in Kenya and establish legal status for Islamic law tribunals.

Meanwhile, trusted sources in Kenya tell WND that the White House has used Vice President Joseph Biden's trip to Kenya in June and the office of U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Michael E. Ranneberger to put out the message that passage of the referendum would enable the White House to open the floodgates to allow millions of dollars of additional U.S. government aid and private investment capital to flow into Kenya.

Last week, in response to inquiries from Reps. Chris Smith, R-N.J., Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the U.S. Agency for International Development admitted to spending more than $23 million of U.S. taxpayer money to influence voters in Kenya to pass the highly contentious constitution.

Despite denials, the Obama administration's funding to support passage of the controversial Kenyan proposed constitution is clear," Jeff Sagnip, spokesman for Rep. Smith, told WND in an e-mail over the weekend. "It constitutes U.S. monetary interference in a sovereign nation's voting process. If passed the constitution would dramatically alter existing pro-life laws."

Sagnip pointed out that the proposed constitution would water down the existing abortion law. It would permit abortion when "in the opinion of a trained health professional, there is need for emergency treatment or the life or health of the mother is in danger, or if permitted by any other written law." That language, Sagnip said, is "obviously vague" and riddled with "blatant loopholes."

Islamic courts

The proposed constitution would also give legal status to what are known as "Kadhi Courts," constituting an Islamic judicial structure within the overall structure of the Kenyan legal structure, to resolve disputes between Muslims under Shariah, or Islamic law.

Critics have charged that the constitutional provision to codify Kadhi Courts would violate the separation of state and religion by allowing Islamic law to have official legal status.

WND previously reported that in the 2007 presidential campaign in Kenya, Raila Odinga – the presidential candidate of the Orange Democratic Party and a Luo tribesman like Obama's father – signed an undisclosed memorandum of understanding with radical Muslims in Kenya to expand Islamic law within the country in exchange for Muslim support of his candidacy.

As reported by Ecumenical News International in the U.K., many Kenyans believe the provision in the proposed referendum that would establish Kadhi Courts is a fulfillment of the agreement Odinga made with Sheik Abdullah Abdi, the chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum.

~ snipet ~

"By funding (nongovernmental organizations) with obtaining 'yes' votes, the administration has crossed the line," Smith said last week in a statement. "Directly supporting efforts to register 'yes' voters and 'get out the yes vote' means the U.S. government is running a political campaign in Kenya. U.S. taxpayer funds should not be used to support one side or the other."

The Standard in Kenya reported Kenyan Higher Education Minister William Ruto, who is leading the "Red" team opposing the Kenyan constitutional referendum, has accused Ambassador Ranneberger of crossing the "no-go-zone for foreign diplomats."

In defending his actions, Ranneberger argued he was operating within his diplomatic orbit, but "more so because the U.S. is a friend of Kenya and is pro-reform," according to the report published by the Standard.

"Ranneberger maintained he was a friend of Kenya and would therefore not shy away from pointing out the lies being propagated by the 'No' team," the Standard wrote.
"Separated by a few kilometers from another meeting, where Ruto was selling his views against the draft, the envoy promised to continue helping the push for reforms," the paper said. "The American ambassador again pointed out Obama was interested in ensuring the country embraces reforms to pave way for better governance, improved livelihood for citizens."

Obama's links to Odinga

The Obama administration's funding of Kenyan internal politics appears to follow a pattern then-Sen. Obama first set on his 2006 Senate-funded visit to Kenya.

During that trip in 2006, Obama campaigned so openly for Odinga that Kenyan government spokesman Alfred Mutua went on Kenyan television on behalf of Kenyan President Kibaki to object that Obama was meddling inappropriately in Kenyan politics, as WND reported.

WND reported in 2008 that Obama raised almost $1 million for Odinga during the run-up to Kenya's 2007 presidential election.

Also as WND previously reported, Odinga called for protests over alleged voter fraud during the December 2007 Kenyan presidential election, with the resulting protest violence leaving an estimated 1,000 members of the dominant Kikuyu tribe in Kenya dead and an estimated 500,000 displaced from their homes.

In a horrifying incident following the election, at least 50 people, including women and children, were killed when an angry mob forced Kikuyu Christians into an Assembly of God church in the village of Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi. The mob set fire to the church, hacking with machetes any of the Christians who attempted to escape the flames.

In the final days of the New Hampshire Democratic primary, after the postelection violence in Kenya, Obama told reporters he continued to remain in contact with Odinga by telephone.

Obama did not object to Odinga's continued push to share the head of state with President Mwai Kibaki despite Odinga's electoral defeat.

Instead, Obama worked with former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to end the violence by creating for Odinga the position of prime minister – a position not defined in the Kenyan constitution – so Odinga could become co–head of state with Kibaki.

As recently as May, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the top prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, was in Kenya to investigate the possibility of bringing criminal charges against both Kibaki and Odinga for their roles in the postelection violence.

09 June 2010

Oklahoma lawmakers are supporting an amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution that would prohibit state courts from relying upon Sharia (Islamic law) or international law in deciding cases.
House Joint Resolution 1056 would place the issue before Oklahoma voters in November. This resolution, nicknamed “Save Our State,” has been proposed because of a rising concern with courts citing non-American sources as legal authority. Sharia, in particular, poses a threat to traditional American values. Honor killings and similar crimes are seeping into our nation, with justification under traditional Islamic law an increasingly common concern..

5 Signs Sharia Law Is Coming to a Town Near You

2010 July 14, 2010

News Real blog

Judicial: Sharia courts are already operating in Britain, but it’s started across the pond too, most recently in Texas, Minnesota, and New Jersey to name a few. This is especially troubling if your president appoints a man sympathetic to Sharia. Harold Koh sees no reason why Sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States.
Legislative: When I vote, I just care that the person running is committed to upholding the U.S. Constitution. I don’t care about gender, race or religion, but these guys give me pause: the North Carolina congressman who refuses to denounce Sharia in the U.S. courts and the Minnesota congressman who swore his oath of office on the Koran. I’m pretty sure the Koran and Sharia have more than a few points in conflict with the Constitution, specifically the first, eighth and thirteenth amendments.
Executive: Before Obama was elected, he went to Kenya to support Raila Odinga, who ran on the platform of imposing Sharia in that country if elected. Um, why? And since then Obama has given a culturally loaded speech to the Muslim world (why not to Mormons? Hari Krishnas?), and has been not just sympathetic, but aggressive in appointing Muslims to key positions–when he’s not literally bowing down to them.

Sharia Courts in...Texas Yes, Texas.T

Judical Watch

The parties will ask the courts to refer the cases for arbitration to Texas Islamic court within “Seven Days” from the establishment of the Texas Islamic Court panel of Arbitrators. The assignment must include ALL cases, including those filed against or on behalf of other family members related to the parties. Each party will notify the other party, Texas Islamic Court, and their respective attorneys, in writing of the assignment of all the above Cause Numbers from the above appropriate District Court to Texas Islamic Court.

Obama To Campaign in Texas – But Local Democrats to Leaving Town The Obama Curse Don't Cha' Know

Obama to campaign in Texas


Barack Obama plans fundraisers for fellow Democrats in Republican-controlled Texas, but his party’s nominee for governor said Tuesday he would not join the event scheduled in the city that he used to run.

Former Houston Mayor Bill White told The Associated Press that he couldn’t block Obama from supporting his campaign to become the first Democrat to win statewide office in Texas since 1994. But he also suggested that Obama’s visit opens the door for Republican Gov. Rick Perry to continue running against Washington insiders — an unwelcomed distraction in the Democrats’ best chance to win the governorship in years.

“I believe Rick Perry will try to run against President Obama because he knows that he can’t beat me,” White told the AP during an interview in San Antonio. “He will try to say — unfairly — that somehow voting for him will somehow change the administration in Washington.”

White is hardly the first candidate to ditch an Obama event.

Ohio Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher, running for an open Senate seat, skipped public Obama appearances. Senate candidate Robin Carnahan flew to Washington to avoid appearing with the president in Missouri. And appearing arm-in-arm with the president cost Florida Gov. Charlie Crist his Republican nomination for a Senate seat, forcing him out of the GOP and onto the ballot as an independent candidate.

Democrats in Texas were planning a pair of fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee in Austin, a liberal enclave, and another in Houston for Democratic Senate candidates.

Tickets to the high-dollar lunch in Austin start at $5,000 each and go up to $30,400 for a couple to have a photograph with the president. A tentative invitation to the event says "some of the proceeds will remain in Texas to help elect Democrats in Texas, including Bill White as our next governor."

But White, the former three-term Houston mayor, said he is booked that day and won't be able to join Obama at any of the events.

Brown Beret Protesters: “You’re Too White. Go Back to Europe.”

"You Are White, You Don't Belong in America" - Brown Berets at All-Star Game

Facebook....Stand With Arizona

Racist "Brown Berets" invade a peaceful, pro-Arizona Tea Party crowd rallying in front of the All-Star Game in Anaheim, July 13, 2010. Modeled after the Black Panthers, the Brown Berets (nicknamed the "Tan Klan" because of their virulently racist views) want a "racially pure Aztlan" with all White Europeans and Jews forcibly removed. They are pro-Islamic terrorism and have called Osama Bin Laden the "Muslim Pancho Villa".

Imagine if a handful of white Tea party folks walked into a pro-illegal rally and said similar things - it would make every national news broadcast for days on end. But of course, unlike the NAACP slander claims - the Tea Party does not stand for racism. But watch as the "Tan Klan" gets a pass for their hate by the media once again.

From the video:

Illegal immigration supporting Brown Beret protesters harass American patriots in front of Californians rallied in front of Angel Stadium (Anaheim, CA) that are trying to support Arizona’s SB 1070 law on Tuesday July 13, 2010.

Nicknamed the Tan Klan or Latino KKK, the Brown Berets are a paramilitary organization founded in the 1960′s that support illegal immigration as a way to forge a racially pure homeland for Latino’s by overthrowing part or all of the United States. Many of these brown Nazis call their plans for a racist homeland ‘Aztlan’.

While this woman brazenly screams racist comments through a bull horn, she can do so because the Obama administration and most of the major news networks in America have her back.

While many in the media will conceal this incident, coverage of the NAACP’s false claim the Tea Party Movement is racist can be found on all networks.

If America knew the truth about the real violence and racism that is pervasive in the pro illegal alien and pro Comprehensive Immigration Reform AMNESTY movement, then CIR would be destroyed.

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

I’d kinda like to see some of thier brown berets meet some of our Green Berets and then start spouting off some of their crap. Whose got the popcorn?

Actually this woman scares me. Not sure why, maybe her screaming, added to her attitude, but she scares me. Weird that it would effect me like that. She is one tuff cookie for sure.

Teen Charged After Crash of Horse and Buggy in Chase

Teen charged after crash of horse and buggy in chase

The Buffalo News

LEON—An Amish teen who tried to flee police faces charges of alcohol possession and “overdriving an animal” after he crashed his getaway vehicle— a horse and buggy.

Cattaraugus County sheriff’s deputies reported over the weekend that Levi E. Detweiler, 17, ran a stop sign and refused officers’ attempts to stop the buggy. Deputies chased Detweiler for about three quarters of a mile, and when he tried an unsafe turn into a driveway, he crashed the horse and buggy in a ditch. The teen then fled on foot but was found later in the area.

The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Bureau completed an investigation and charged the youth with possession of alcohol by someone under 21, overdriving an animal, seconddegree reckless endangerment, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle in the incident that occurred at about 1:30 a. m. last Monday. He is free on $500 bail.

Blacklisting Done To Lt. Col. Allen West and wife Dr Angela Graham-West

Lt. Col. Allen West and his wife Angela and their daughters

H/T atlas shrugs

Bill, Danielle, and Chip, at about 1210 pm today I received a call from Ms Chris Landshut, (954)739-5007, Executive Director of the South Florida Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. After reintroducing herself to me she was uncomfortable telling me of a situation that has arisen reference the nomination of Angela and myself as a South Florida Finest Couple.

She informed me that she has received complaints from certain individuals who have threatened to withdraw their support to the Cystic Fibrosis gala event if Angela and I are honored. She humbly asked if I would agree to step down and allow the event to proceed and not disrupt the support to the foundation. These individuals have called and complained to the National Foundation decrying "politicizing" of the event.

In accepting the nomination, Angela and I consented to raise $10K for the Cystic Fibrosis foundation, our opportunity to give back to our community. However, not wanting to cause the foundation to lose what I was told could be up to $200K I consented to Ms Landshut that Angela and I would step down and not participate in the event.

Bill, you are the Chairman of this gala event and therefore I would like a formal letter of apology, not to me, but rather to my wife Dr Angela Graham-West explaining this situation. I do not care how people attack me but my wife is another matter.

I know that this situation revolves around my congressional candidacy but this event has honored political figures before. I felt that our service to this Nation and local commnity warranted our nomination.

It has come to my attention that the McCloskey and Levy families are the donors who have threatened to withdraw support due to prodding from the wife of Congressman Ron Klein. I find this reprehensible, disgusting, despicable, and petulant....but indicative of the hideous side of South Florida politics which I condemn. There is proof of this, to include an email trail, and I would appreciate your honesty when this becomes a topic of inquiry.

I must now contact all those friends whom I had asked to assist us in raising the requisite funds and inform them of this issue. I pray you are prepared.

I hold no angst against you as the Chairman of the event, Ms Landshut, or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. However, I am highly upset with those who would blackmail the CF Foundation in order to play politics.

Steadfast and Loyal, LTC(R) Allen B West

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

This was a test of integrity for those at CF and they failed it by giving in to veiled blackmail. Life is a series of decisions, and good people need to stand together to support one another, and accept the consequences.

In this case, ... See Moreundoubtedly CF will reap the consequences of failed integrity. This is one more example of why we need the kind of leadership for which Allen West and Dr. Angela Graham-West are known.

Instead of setting their politics aside and allowing a PATRIOT and his wife to raise money for a very serious illness that effects millions, THEY are the ones that are making it POLITICAL! I am SOOOOOOOOOO sick of these charletons!

This was specific about Allen West and the desperation from the Klein campaign who will stop at nothing to win, including hurting sick people.

Klein is an ass. Look at this.....Kleini using an CF victim for Obama speech on obamacare.

U.S. Senate Democratic Candidate Alvin Greene Gives His First Speech

U.S. Senate Democratic candidate Alvin Greene gives his first speech during the Manning Branch NAACP's monthly meeting on July 18, 2010 at Manning Junior High School.

'Reclaim Our Country' From 'Terrorists And The Communists'

Greene spoke for about seven minutes, and reportedly told Jessica Yellin of CNN, who was in Manning, that his speech was "handwritten on double lined notebook paper."

Raw video from Alvin Greene’s first speech…ever. On the sign outside the gymnasium, they spelled his name wrong (without the ‘e’ at the end). He was supposed to take questions from the press corps at the end of what was supposed to be a 20-30 minute speech (it was actually 7 minutes), but didn’t. There were around 4-500 people there to support him, and they clapped enthusiastically, as you’ll hear, at all the talking points he threw out. The whole thing is positively comical. It’s as if he’s performing a skit in a high school talent show. My favorite part is at the -1.30 minute mark when he talks about “a guy” who I THINK is actually him – and references a trial of some sort. It is completely apropos of NOTHING, which could also be said about pretty much the entire speech.

I cannot WAIT for the Greene/Demint debate(s). I hope to God they’re televised, because that would be a million times better than any sitcom.

Did he really just call out Obama and his inner circle of William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, etc? heh heh

“Greene then repeated the statistic that in June, “we saw a net loss of 125,000 jobs across the country.”

And this is Senator DeMints fault, we lost 125,000 jobs because of him? Sorry, Obama and the Democrats run the country Mr. Greene

Poll: Obama Trailing Potential Opponents!

Obama Approval Ratings Keep Dropping (-16 in Rasmussen for Sunday 6/20/10)

For Sunday, the Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll reveals that 28 percent of the country's voters Strongly Approve of the method that Barack Oabama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16.

Rasmussen Reports that, "the Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 43 percent of voters believe they at least somewhat disapprove of the president's performance, while 57 percent disapprove.

It is necessary to note that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other polling firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama's poll numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults instead of likely voters. This would be because some of the president's most exuberant supporters, such as young adults, are not as likely to turn out to vote. It is also necessary to check the details of question wording when comparing approval ratings from different polling firms.

According to Rasmussen Reports, "daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of sampling error - for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters - is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results ar available for Premium Memebers."

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

28 percent strongly approve. Of what?

I still think his approval is too high. There should be more Ameicans that love our country then want it turned socialized and communist. ( deep sigh ) But all the same, I am grateful his ratings are dropping.

He is going down, down, down. Let's hope it gets to the 30s by November .

Unions Holding Up Cash for the Troops

Unions Holding Up Cash for the Troops

( Bill will also nationalize our first responders, policemen, and firemen )


Last week the Washington Times had a story that should enrage every true American. The Democrat Congress is allowing Big Labor’s needs to come before the needs of our troops. The supplemental budget that Congress is considering is supposed to be about funding the troops and their efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, but Democrats are more interested in how many payoffs for Big Labor they can stuff into the thing then in funding the troops.

Like most supplementals, this bill began with a singular purpose: paying war expenses. It since has been larded with billions in wasteful projects and programs designed to attract the vote of the left-of-center members with no fondness for the military. Among the House-approved giveaways are a $10 billion bailout for big-spending local governments, loan guarantees worth $9 billion for purported renewable energy, $3 billion for black farmers and American Indians who sued the government and $1 billion for summertime “youth activities.”

There is also language to nationalize our first responders, policemen, and firemen.

This outrageous action would force all police and firefighter’s work rules under federal control and prevent all local governments from being able to make their own local rules and regulations for their own police and fire departments. This bill would essentially cause all state and local governments to have to deal with Washington-based union regulations when setting budgets, hiring and firing, and writing work rules for first responders.

These new rules would wildly inflate state and local budgets and eliminate all local control. Voters would be unable to affect their own police and firefighters, local politicians would be looking to Washington to guide them, and union leaders would see their power and personal wealth skyrocket.

And all of this is being stuffed into the bill to fund our troops. Obviously Democrats care more about unions than they do our troops. Even terrorism seems to be less important to Democrats than the needs of union thugs. It is an outrage.


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

Unions are so anti-American that it is sickening.

Damn these people and anyone, that would hold anything back from our troops.

Mystery Shrouds Closure of 73,000 Blogs

Mystery Shrouds Closure of 73,000 Blogs

CBS News

Web host service shuts down a blogging platform and said authorities forced its hand. But the RIAA, MPAA and Homeland Security's antipiracy unit hasn't heard of the site. Who's responsible?, a little known WordPress platform used by more than 70,000 blogs, was shut down by its Web hosting company over a week ago and nobody seems willing to say why or who is responsible.

BurstNet, the Web hosting company, informed Blogetery's operator that service was terminated at the request of some law enforcement agency but wouldn't say which one. As for the reason, BurstNet hasn't made that clear either. In an e-mail to Blogetery's operator, BurstNet managers did say, however, that they had little choice but to terminate service.

"Please note that this was not a typical case in which suspension and notification would be the norm," BurstNet wrote to Blogetery's operator. "This was a critical matter brought to our attention by law enforcement officials. We had to immediately remove the server."

BurstNet executives were not immediately available for comment on Sunday afternoon.

Those BurstNet never indicated Blogetery's problems were caused by copyright violations, TorrentFreak, a blog that covers Web file-sharing issues and broke the story, wrote that the U.S. government may be involved as part of stepped-up antipiracy operations.

Nearly three weeks ago, a group of federal law enforcement agencies, including the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a unit of the Department of Homeland Security--seized assets and Web sites belonging to people authorities say operated illegal file-sharing sites. President Barack Obama has said his administration is going to get tough on piracy and counterfeiting.

But on Sunday, a spokeswoman for ICE said "while ICE's Internet piracy enforcement efforts are still very much ongoing, we were not involved with the action."

A spokesman for the Recording Industry Association of America said Sunday that the trade group for the four top record labels had nothing to do with Blogetery's shut down. A spokesman for the Motion Picture Association of America said he had never heard of Blogetery.

That the MPAA and RIAA may not be involved makes sense. Typically, they try to make big news out of any enforcement efforts. They want them to act as deterrents.

And Blogetery's operator said in the e-mail exchange with BurstNet, that he always adhered to copyright law. Whenever anyone on his platform was accused of posting links to unauthorized movie or music files, he removed the material "within 24 hours."

What we still don't know is whether some state's enforcement agency or other branch of the federal government pressured BurstNet to cut off Blogotery. We still don't know for sure whether the reason for the shut down was due to copyright violations.

U.S. Authorities Shut Down Wordpress Host With 73000 Blogs

from Conservative Allience

Essentially a server host company named 'WordPress' that hosted seventy-three-thousand blogs, was commandeered and made to sever connections as regards the service connections to those blogs- and all data was taken by the fed, in several cases...if not all- and made unrecoverable.

Think about the implications of this for a moment.

This is reported to have happened over an as yet proved or officially presented charge of copyright infringement by some users on that network who were alleged to have been posting video and music for sharing on separate sites within that server block.

Here, I do have a suspicion that the offending sites may well have been plants, intended to give cause to the fed and not the actual targets of the shut-downs themselves. I reckon time will prove this suspicion accurate, or inaccurate.

But I do have the thought and it is worth considering...because a second story will be tied to this one and the reason for my observation will become clear.

Typically, in the case of any site owner or member(s) violations there is a warning notice sent to the server host and a subsequent cease and desist order is sent by the server host to offending sites. From there, specific 'offending' members and policies are addressed. This time, 'round...copyright czar 'Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel' took direct action and shut down these Word Press blogs. One seems to have been: You can paste this term into a search engine and view the 'redirect'.
If you check that link you'll see evidence of a prepared site owner.

EVERY site owner should be ready to re-establish on more than one stored medium account, and do it quickly.
It doesn't hurt to download your entire site(s) daily, so as to have something up to date to start over with...

Note that this is a first and that under the expanding authority of the czars, due process does not exist in any areas of their dictatorship.

They answer to no one.

This move is part of what I had said was coming and if it is not challenged and defeated in court, then entire networks can be knocked off line on a whim with all data lost to server hosts and to users because of a 'charge' filed by the czar.

Court action in this case is unlikely, I think, because I truly do not see any Internet User Coalition up and running.
(I would very much like to be proven wrong)

In my view an intended net closure by the czar is precisely what this Internet news story is revealing.
It is unlikely that you will see much of this story in the mainstream news rooms, but it is on Drudge today.


Now, for your review and consideration, the second story..........

State Department warns employees about new website highlighting Top Secret facilities


The State Department is bracing for a potentially explosive new feature on the Washington Post website that would publish the names and locations of agencies and firms conducting Top Secret work on behalf of the U.S. government, according to the copy of an email obtained by The Cable.

The Diplomatic Security Bureau at State sent out a notice Thursday to all department employees warning them to protect classified information and reject inquiries from the press when the new web feature goes live.

"The Washington Post plans to publish a website listing all agencies and contractors believed to conduct Top Secret work on behalf of the U.S. Government," the notice reads. "The website provides a graphic representation pinpointing the location of firms conducting Top Secret work, describing the type of work they perform, and identifying many facilities where such work is done."

According to the notice, the Post used only open-source information to compile its site. However, if some of that open-source information turns out to have been classified, its publication by the Post doesn't change that classification, the State Department emphasized.

"All Department personnel should remain aware of their responsibility to protect classified and other sensitive information, such as the Department's relationships with contract firms, other U.S. Government agencies, and foreign governments," the notice says.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley confirmed the authenticity of the e-mail and said it went out to all State Department employees in the Washington, DC area, 14,574 people.

The Washington Post declined requests for comment.

Here's the full notice:

Office of Origin: DS/EX

Announcement Number: 2010_07_059

Date of Announcement: July 15, 2010

Notification of Major Media Outlet Story On Monday July 19, the Washington Post plans to publish a website listing all agencies and contractors believed to conduct Top Secret work on behalf of the U.S. Government. The website provides a graphic representation pinpointing the location of firms conducting Top Secret work, describing the type of work they perform, and identifying many facilities where such work is done.

Although the Washington Post acquired the information from open sources, all Department personnel should remain aware of their responsibility to protect classified and other sensitive information, such as the Department's relationships with contract firms, other U.S. Government agencies, and foreign governments. Employees are reminded that they must neither confirm nor deny information contained in this, or any, media publication, and that the publication of this website and supporting articles does not constitute a change to the level of classification of any information duly classified in accordance with Executive Order 13526.

In the unlikely event you are contacted for comment, please forward any request for information to the Bureau of Public Affairs, Press Relations Office at (202) 647-2492.

UPDATE: The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder publishes a related memo by Art House, the communications director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which appears to be just as worried as the State Department about the Post's reporting. Excerpt:

"It might be helpful as you prepare for publication to draw up a list of accomplishments and examples of success to offer in response to inquiries to balance the coverage and add points that deserve to be mentioned. In media discussions, we will seek to garner support for the Intelligence Community and its members by offering examples of agile, integrated activity that has enhanced performance. We will want to minimize damage caused by unauthorized disclosure of sensitive and classified information. "

It also describes ODNI's expections for the Washington Post series:


While we can't predict specific content, we anticipate the following themes:
The intelligence enterprise has undergone exponential growth and has become unmanageable with overlapping authorities and a heavily outsourced contractor workforce.
The IC and the DoD have wasted significant time and resources, especially in the areas of counterterrorism and counterintelligence.
The intelligence enterprise has taken its eyes off its post-9/11 mission and is spending its energy on competitive and redundant programs.


The Washington Post may run a series of three articles, the first being an overview, the second focused on the large number of contractors supporting the intelligence enterprise, and the third looking at a specific community (the Fort Meade/BWI Airport area) that has expanded in part due to Intelligence Community growth.
The Washington Post is expected to work with Public Broadcasting Service's Frontline program to add a television component to this work, and will also present an interactive web site demonstrating growth of the intelligence enterprise and inviting comment and dialogue. The Post advises that "links" between individual contractors and specific agencies have been deleted, although the Post will still cite contractors and their locations.

UPDATE #2: An administration official responds to The Cable to comment on the Post series, which the administration is portraying as less than meets the eye.

"A lot of this is explainable. You want some redundancy in the Intelligence Community and you're going to have some waste. These are things we've been aware of and in some instances we agree are troubling. However, it's something we've been working on for a year and a half. It's something we've been on top of," the official said.

"There was a need for urgent expansion after 9/11 and there was a need for an expansion of contractors to fill analyst positions. There will be examples of money being wasted in the series that seem egregious and we are just as offended as the readers by those examples."


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

Concerning stuff to say the least.

So, why not just enforce the existing laws about copyrighting, etc? Why shut down a site? I don't recall the Federal government ever closing down a newspaper, or taking a book off the shelf that contained such material. We have Freedom of Speech, for Heaven's sake!!! If someone wants to violate existing laws, they are free to do so, and free to be prosecuted. I swear, soon we will all be wearing armbands with Obama’s symbol on them in order to prove allegiance to this dictator.

What this all shows is there is no way to stop them from taking down a blog or a forum if they want to.

Here are some important links:

Lieberman…Purging The Internet of Dissent

US Cyber Command...Perfect Citizen Or Big Brother?

Glenn Beck Is Warning Us To Grab Everything We Can Off The Internet Because They Are About To Shut It Down!

If it really gets bad, I mean worse then it is. Freenet is used by Chinese dissidents to communicate out of China without censorship.

That is all I know about it and I have no clue how it works or how to do it.

Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS

Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS

New federal regulations issued this week stipulate that the electronic health records--that all Americans are supposed to have by 2014 under the terms of the stimulus law that President Barack Obama signed last year--must record not only the traditional measures of height and weight, but also the Body Mass Index: a measure of obesity.

The obesity-rating regulation states that every American's electronic health record must: “Calculate body mass index. Automatically calculate and display body mass index (BMI) based on a patient’s height and weight.”

The law also requires that these electronic health records be available--with appropriate security measures--on a national exchange.

U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin.

The new regulations are one of the first steps towards the government’s goal of universal adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) by 2014, as outlined in the 2009 economic stimulus law. Specifically, the regulations issued on Tuesday by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Dr. David Blumenthal, the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, define the "meaningful use" of electronic records. Under the stimulus law, health care providers--including doctors and hospitals--must establish "meaningful use" of EHRs by 2014 in order to qualify for federal subsidies. After that, they will be subjected to penalties in the form of diminished Medicare and Medicaid payments for not establishing "meaningful use" of EHRs.

Section 3001 of the stimulus law says: "The National Coordinator shall, in consultation with other appropriate Federal agencies (including the National Institute of Standards and Technology), update the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan (developed as of June 3, 2008) to include specific objectives, milestones, and metrics with respect to the following: (i) The electronic exchange and use of health information and the enterprise integration of such information.‘‘(ii) The utilization of an electronic health record for each person in the United States by 2014."

Under this mandate in the stimulus law, Secretary Sebelius issued a regulation--developed by Dr. Blumenthal--that requires that all EHRs keep track of a person’s Body Mass Index (BMI) score. Body Mass Index is a ratio between a person’s weight and height, and is used to determine whether or not someone is overweight or obese. It is the preferred method of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for measuring obesity.

Michelle Obama has made dealing with the problem of childhood obesity the main theme of her term as First Lady.

According to the CDC, “BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.”

A person’s BMI score is used as a tool to screen for obesity or excessive body fat that could lead to other health problems. While it does not actually measure body fat directly, according to CDC, the BMI scores generally correlate with a person’s body fat percentage.

The new regulations also stipulate that the new electronic records be capable of sending public health data to state and federal health agencies such as HHS and CDC. The CDC, which calls American society “obesogenic” – meaning that American society itself promotes obesity – collects BMI scores from state health agencies every year to monitor obesity nationwide.

“Electronically record, retrieve, and transmit syndrome based public health surveillance information to public health agencies,” the regulations read.

With the spread of electronic health records, the CDC apparently will be able to collect such data more efficiently and with greater accuracy because the electronic record keeping systems can send the data automatically, eliminating the need for government – both state and federal – to keep, send, and process physical records.

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

Umm . . . sorry sir or lady , I know you need that heart transplant, but your BMI is too high to qualify. I'm afraid you'll just have to die. You know it makes it easier to decide who goes to the soap factories.

Anyone still believe that healthcare rationing isn't coming?

And one other things, when I was bodybuilding one of the things I learned is that BMI means nothing if you are very muscular. So if ithey are going to use that, then the Body Mass Index - it looks like most professional athletes will be listed as fat.Heck 90% of the NFL is obese by the BMI standard!

What a bunch of Frickin’ fascist/communist/Maoist jerks.

It's a major problem when the feds or state pass a law that gives an agency the power to draw up the regulations under that law. It means non-elected bureaucrats are making the rules, rules which have the effect of law.

The Government will use these statistics to decide who is ‘worthy’ of life preserving health care. This is the end of American personal freedom. All in the name of requiring us to do what the Left deems is good for us.

Dare we even ask ....'Where in the Constitution is this authorized?'

To get BMI simply take the weight (in kilograms) divided by the height (in meters) squared. Nothing more, nothing less. For example, if you're 6 foot tall (1.83) meters, you take the height and square it (1.83 X 1.83 = 3.35). Then take your weight in kilograms, say 70 (155 pounds), and divide it by the result of squaring your height (70 / 3.35 = 20.9). Congradulations, at 6 foot tall and 155 pounds, you are at a "normal" weight with a BMI of 20.9. A little scrawney, well actuallly pretty thin for sure, but that's the way Obama wants you.

BMI remains a pi$$-poor indicator of body fat content.

Michele Bachmann Starts House Tea Party Caucus

Texas GOP Vote

U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6) filed paperwork Thursday to start a House Tea Party Caucus in order to promote a call for fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, and limited government:

Bachmann said of the Tea Party Caucus:

"The American people are speaking out loud and clear. They have had enough of the spending, the bureaucracy, and the government knows best mentality running rampant today throughout the halls of Congress. This caucus will espouse the timeless principles of our founding, principles that all Members of Congress have sworn to uphold. The American people are doing their part and making their voices heard and this caucus will prove that there are some here in Washington willing to listen."

A letter was sent earlier today to Representative Robert Brady, Chairman of the Committee on House Administration to register the House Tea Party Caucus as a Congressional Member Organization for the 111th Congress .

Woo hoo!! Way to go Michele!! What a great idea. Go on the offensive! That is thinking outside the box. I love it. But be careful, there’s some very clever infiltraitors (not a mispell) out there..

Obama and Admiral Allen Orders Well Opened, BP Says It Will Keep Well Closed


Admiral Allen Orders Well Opened, BP Says It Will Keep Well Closed

Business Insider

BP will keep the cap closed until it fears the well is at risk, Operations Chief Doug Suttles said in a conference call this morning.

This contradicts orders from Admiral Allen to open the well and begin siphoning oil -- to avoid a possible pressure-buildup.

So who's behind the wheel? And is BP about to take a huge risk?

PREVIOUSLY: Admiral Allen has ordered BP to open the containment cap that they finally closed last Thursday, according to Bloomberg. BP will return to siphoning oil from the well, capturing more than ever before.

While changing equipment, oil will leak unimpeded into the Gulf.

But what's most worrying are signs of ongoing uncertainty about well integrity. Opening the well is a precaution against an apocalyptic ocean floor collapse:

Allowing oil to flow from the well will make the final kill procedure easier and safer, as it will lower the pressure in the reservoir and make any potential hidden leaks less risky, [Houston professor] Van Nieuwenhuise said.

In other words, the final relief well procedure will NOT be a cakewalk.


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

Disconcerting to say the least.

I don't get it, but we do know one thing for sure. The plan from 1600 Penn. Ave. is to destroy and nationalize the oil companies like all Commies do. He started with Banking, then Auto, now Oil. TRAITORS!

If the sea floor collapses, it’s Katie bar the door time. This reservoir is enormous. Some say the 2nd largest in the world.

George Will Calls NAACP Resolution " Left-wing McCarthyism " ~ Nope More Like Alinsky

George Will nailed it on Sunday morning's show This Week.

He argued that the racist NAACP tea party resolution was “Left-wing McCarthyism.”

“Precisely. There’s nothing like name-calling and a kind of left-wing McCarthyism to enable the NAACP to make a desperate lunge for its vanished relevance. You say that this episode that he’s talking about and the Vice President made a brief reference to it, is a “he said-he said” whether or not the n-word was used. It’s a he said if four television cameras monitoring that event said it didn’t happen. A talk radio host if offering up $100,000 to anyone who can produce a shred of evidence that it happened. And, $100,000 is still on the table.”

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

Nope, Will is good but I would say McCarthy was right back then and is proven correct more every day this Regime is in power, the Communist and Socialist overtook this Nation, something he was trying to prevent.

Alinsky was the person Will should have mentioned instead. It’s worse than McCarthy, because there is less justification to the charge. And it’s an intentional smear done for purely political reasons.

McCarthy accused folks of being communists. And he usually had some evidence to support his argument.

These guys from the NAACP are just racist demagogues.

A decent performance by Will. But it’s telling about how out of touch he is with the cutting edge of the movement when he refers to Andrew Breitbart as “a radio talk show host”.

Obama Criticizes GOP Leadership for Blocking Increase Of The National Deficit

In his Weekly Address, President Obama attacked Republicans for blocking democratic attempts to increase the national deficit. Republicans say they will only support extending unemployment benefits if they are paid for.

AP News

Barack Obama is taking aim at Senate Republicans, accusing them of playing politics with measures that would extend benefits to the unemployed and increase lending to small businesses.

Striking a deeply partisan tone in his weekly Saturday radio and online address, Obama said the GOP leadership has chosen to “filibuster our recovery and obstruct our progress” by blocking votes on agenda items the president says would breath life into the economic recovery.

The address was recorded at the White House before Obama flew to Maine on Friday for a weekend family vacation.

Too often, the Republican leadership in the United States Senate chooses to filibuster our recovery and obstruct our progress. And that has very real consequences,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.
Senate Republicans have blocked at least three Democratic initiatives to extend unemployment insurance, citing the need to curb government spending amid a record budget deficit.
“Think about what these stalling tactics mean for the millions of Americans who’ve lost their jobs since the recession began. Over the past several weeks, more than two million of them have seen their unemployment insurance expire,” the president said.
Obama has made job creation his top domestic priority and has traveled repeatedly to the U.S. heartland to tout policies that lift hiring, including to Holland, Michigan, on Thursday for the groundbreaking of an electric car battery factory that has received federal dollars.

That last sentence is the biggest joke of the whole passage; Obama has certainly NOT made job creation his top domestic policy…if he had, we’d already be under the 8% unemployment numbers he promised when he shoved his first “top domestic priority” down our throats - the Stimulus bill. After that, of course, his top domestic priority was the Auto bailout, then the “too big to fail” bailout, then the Health Care takeover, then Financial reform (no more “too big to fail”…EVER)…and so on, ad infinitum. His top domestic priority is no older than his most recent brainstorm for how to get re-elected in 2012.

The $34 billion needed to extend benefits would be borrowed, adding to the nation’s mounting debt. Republicans have tapped into the public’s anger and concern over that debt, saying they would only support extending benefits if the bill was paid for.

In their weekly address, Republicans focused on Obama's recess appointment of Donald Berwick to the administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. By appointing Berwick while the Senate was in recess, Obama was able to avoid a public hearing and Senate vote for his nominee - a move Republicans have called hypocritical amid Obama's promises of transparency.

Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, who delivered the address, said Berwick's recess appointment is particularly troubling given the large role he'll play in implementing the massive health care overhaul Obama signed into law earlier this year.
"The president's health care plan - the most sweeping overhaul of health care in our lifetime - cannot be implemented behind closed doors," Roberts said.

Wild Thing's comment......

Obama why don't you REALLY shock us and become a man for once in your life. Not only a man but one that loves his country, OUR country, you know the one you cheated and stole to be your version of a DICtator over.

Penis Pumps for Illegal Aliens–Guess Who Paid?

Austin Powers and his enlarger pump

Penis Pumps for Illegal Aliens–Guess Who Paid?

“The task of deliberately throwing away enough of our money to drive America bankrupt so that a socialist utopia can be built on its ruins isn’t as easy as you may think. Liberals have stretched their imaginations to come up with all manner of wasteful projects, ranging from gargantuan Porkulus bills down to penis pumps for illegal aliens.

A Minnesota town is outraged over reports that an illegal immigrant was implanted with a penis pump — paid for by taxpayers.

Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate said the expense to taxpayers was more than $50,000.

This illustrates one of the many reasons Americans across the country side with Arizona against the new Axis of Evil — Mexico/the ACLU/the Obama Administration.

[Scott County Attorney Pat] Ciliberto told county commissioners the cost of taking care of illegal immigrants in their community is skyrocketing.

“It should be obvious when Scott County goes from seven bookings in 2006 to 90 bookings in 2009 — that Arizona’s problem is Minnesota’s problem, too,” he told the newspaper.

According to published numbers, the county spent more than $800,000 housing inmates with immigration holds — and that doesn’t include medical coverage.

“We have no control over the southern border,” he said. “We don’t know who is coming in and what country they’re coming from.”

Regardless, local officials said they are required by federal and state laws to provide welfare to illegals — from court costs to health care — including a penis pump.

Criminal aliens have helped California spend itself to the brink of economic collapse. If Obama has his way, they will do the same for the rest of the country, ushering in a glorious collectivist future for those who don’t like capitalism but can’t be bothered to immigrate to Cuba.

County attorney rails against illegal immigration

Shakopee Valley News

A man in the country illegally who committed a $27,000 identity-theft crime in Scott County was able to obtain tens of thousands of dollars in governmental medical assistance, including surgery for an inflatable penis pump.

In response to heightened concern about illegal immigration since a gang-related stabbing in Shakopee, Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto has been tallying known costs to taxpayers and gave this example.

“There’s no logical argument for why that should have been approved,” Ciliberto told county commissioners on Tuesday. “I don’t know how many illegal aliens are getting emergency medical assistance for such a procedure.”

It is impossible to know the full cost of illegal immigrants in Scott County receiving public assistance or going through the court system, but the burden on the jail alone is staggering.

The county’s cost for housing inmates with immigration holds has grown nearly tenfold in recent years, reaching more than $307,000 last year. The impact over the last four years totaled $843,600, which doesn’t even include medical coverage.


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

Several years back, the taxpayers of Oregon paid for a convicted murderer illegal alien to have dialysis and a kidney transplant. Yet, some of our injured servicemen are paying tax on their prosthetics and getting billed for 'equipment' during their duty before their wounds. Others can't get the government to acknowledge their severe disabilities.

It is all out of hand...bending our laws for non citizens and waising our tax dollars to buy votes for bad politicians. A tax revolt is well overdue. This is outrageous. Why should we be forced to pay for these things?

Rising prices due to inflation. just kidding, I couldn’t resist.

Obama’s Dog Flies to Vacation on Separate Jet ~ Poor Bo Stuck With This Horrid Family!

In this photo taken Friday, July 16, 2010, Bo, the presidential dog, is seen with an aide as President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, seen above rear, visit Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Maine

And then they can't even be bothered with Bo when they (the taxpayers, actually) fly him up for their vacation.
Poor Bo the dog for having to be a part of this vile family!!!

Morning Sentinel

The president was the first to walk onto the tarmac, dressed casually in a pale blue Oxford shirt and khakis. A few minutes later, the first lady, dressed in black capris, a tank-top and sandals, walked onto the runway. Shortly afterward, Malia and Sasha joined their parents.

Baldacci and his wife, Karen, presented the family with gift bags full of Maine-made goodies, including baskets made by the Passamaquoddy Tribe, popcorn from Little Lad’s Bakery in East Corinth, iconic L.L. Bean bags, University of Maine ice hockey hats, and an assortment of other Maine foods and books.

Karen Baldacci said the bags for Malia and Sasha contained one loon toy and one chickadee toy that sound their natural calls.

Arriving in a small jet before the Obamas was the first dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog given as a present by the late U.S. Sen Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and the president’s personal aide Reggie Love, who chatted with Baldacci.


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

Obama sure is addicted to spending OUR tax dollars. I wish there was some way to BAN him from being able to spend one more penny from any of us. Heck even better ban him from our country would be even better.

Bo needs a family that LOVES and wants him as a DOG not Political Toy!

Just my guess,the reason they don’t travel with the dog is, again, due to his being Muslim. Muslims see dogs as unclean, vile, worthy of death so they don’t want to ‘defile’ Airforce One by bringing Bo aboard.

Two things happening here, our tax dollars used to throw away on a flight that was not necessary. Bo could so easily have flown with the them there is plenty of room. Then there is the fact that I really see no love from this family for their dog.

But Obama doesn’t care what any of us think.

He has every intention of stealing the next two elections — certainly the 2012 election.

And the second video that women is a total leftie. Obviousy it is ok with her that Obama is screwing with HER JOB as a nurse. And she cares about patients. NO way will I ever believe a doctor or nurse cares about patients when they are Obama brained. No freaking way.

I feel bad for all the wonderful doctors and nurses that do care about their patients and have to be connected to a sick Union like this one.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Warns Those Crossing Over From Mexico

Examiner Tampa Bay

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Warns Those Crossing Over From Mexico: "We're Gonna Have Enough Firepower To React"

The Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio launched its 16th crime and immigration sweep in a stretch of desert in the southwestern U.S.-Mexico border, on Thursday.

Although the next crime suppression operation had been announced for July 29, Arpaio said the one-day sweep was executed sooner due to reports of many drug and immigrant smugglers activity through the Vekol Valley.

Arpaio ordered the deployment of a powerful belt-fed .50 caliber machine gun to be on site during the operation to ensure deputies' safety, as there have been recent reports of violence in the desolate desert areas.

“If anyone shoots at our deputies, they are going to have a problem,” said Arpaio in a news conference in the minutes prior to the sweep.

In a later statement, Arpaio also said that he is not afraid, but well prepared to face drug traffickers.

"I want to send a message to these criminal traffickers that we will not be intimidated by reports claiming that traffickers are better equipped than our law enforcement officers […] we have the machine guns too and we will not hesitate to use them if the situation calls for it."

By late Thursday night, sheriff's deputies said they had arrested 11 people, including seven of those being investigated for human trafficking. The rest were detained for outstanding warrants and traffic violations.

Thursday's crime sweep coincided with the very first federal hearing regarding Arizona's new immigration law, but Arpaio denied any connection between the two. The next planned sweep is set to take place July 29th, the same day Senate Bill 1070 is scheduled to take effect.

Democrat Voter Fraud is Far More Widespread Than You Think

Here is the video when Fox News asked Gaston to appear on the Sunday morning program Fox and Friends.

Democrat Voter Fraud is Far More Widespread Than You Think

Canada Free Press

Last week I wrote an article titled How Obama Used an Army of Thugs to Steal the 2008 Democratic Primary that introduced the conservative community to the movie “We Will Not Be Silenced”, made by Democrat activist Gigi Gaston two years ago. Her video documented widespread voter fraud committed by Obama supporters during the 2008 Democratic primary election to secure the nomination for Obama over the popular vote winner Hillary Clinton.

The story went viral and 24 hours later Fox News asked Gaston to appear on the Sunday morning program Fox and Friends. For the first time many Americans saw for themselves first hand accounts from Democrats who personally witnessed “the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign.”

As explained on the We Will Not Be Silenced website, “‘Change’ from Chicago encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote.”

Because of the program and other recent events concerning voter intimidation, including the Black Panther incident in Philadelphia and testimony from J. Christian Adams on the Department of Justice’s unwillingness to pursue voter related crimes committed by African Americans, people around the country are finally waking up to the fact that Democrat voter fraud is a far, far bigger problem than anyone had ever realized.

Some conservatives have mistakenly interpreted these events as only affecting Democratic primaries and aren’t concerned about the possibility of vote theft in a general election.
But they would be wrong.

While the voter fraud documented in Gaston’s film primarily involves Democratic caucuses, the bigger story here isn’t a single primary, but the bag of tricks that Democrats use to influence elections of all kinds.

Earlier in the week Fox News ran a story showing how illegal votes by felons in Minnesota were enough for Democrat Al Franken to beat Republican candidate Norm Coleman and claim the Senate seat.

Millions had voted in the Minnesota election, but at the end of the day all it took was 341 criminals to disenfranchise an entire state.

How to Steal an Election

What we are seeing is the transplantation of Chicago politics to communities throughout the nation that are completely unprepared for the level of fraud and intimidation that can be generated by thousands of unethical Democrats, including private citizens, local, state, and federal officials, and politicians, convinced that breaking the law is okay as long as the “right” candidate wins.

On July 6, American Thinker published an article by Lee Cary about an interview with a Chicago political machine insider. It contained the following warning:

“In Chicago, the Precinct Captains watch to see who votes and who doesn’t. Then, at the end of the day, others will cast votes for those who haven’t shown up to vote, all under the direction of the Precinct Captain. If the actual voter shows up later, they’re given someone else’s card. The Republican poll watchers don’t stop this. Hell, most of them are actually Democrats.”

The Democrat Voter Fraud Playbook is as follows:

1.ACORN registers the names, legitimate or not.
2.Black Panther, SEIU and other “community organizer” groups intimidate people, especially minorities, from voting Republican.
3.Voter lists remain unscrubbed of felons, dead people, and illegal immigrants.
4.On Election Day, precinct workers submit any unused ballots for Democrat candidates.
5.Democrat officials and politicians pretend like nothing happened.

It’s as easy as that to steal an election.

An Army of Republican Poll Watchers Will Be Needed this November

The voter fraud stories so far are just the tip of a very large iceberg. No one really knows the full extent of the problem and the Democratic Party is counting on Americans to shrug it off as just another conservative conspiracy theory.

But take it from a lifelong Chicagoan, it’s not just Bosnia that needs election observers to keep voter fraud in check.

The dropping of voter intimidation charges by Department of Justice political appointees against billy club wielding Black Panthers sends the message to the Democrat community that mass voter fraud can continue without fear of legal reprisal.

Justice officials know full well that if they were to start digging around this Pandora’s Box of fraud, many influential Democratic organizations (especially ACORN) and politicians will be implicated. So they go straight to Step #5 from above and pretend like there’s nothing to see.

While the problem may be substantial, there is one way Republicans can fight back: Keep a close eye on voting locations. Election fraud only works if citizens remain ignorant to the problem and unwilling to become involved in the voting process.

Considering the importance of the upcoming November elections, an army of Republican poll watchers, especially in minority neighborhoods which are often treated like never ending vote generating machines by unscrupulous Democrat politicians, will be needed to prevent liberals from once again stuffing ballot boxes and gaming the system


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

Time for being polite is over because they’re in the process of stealing our freedom.

Many of us have been screaming, about voter fraud since Gore tried to steal the election in 2000. The response from the republicans has been next to nonexistent.

It’s time to defeat voter fraud once and for all. Fraud is why we have this worthless marxist/socialist punk in the white house right now. Fraud is how Al Franken got his seat. Fraud is how at least 50% of the democrats obtained and keep their seats in congress, and it must be eliminated.

We need strict voter ID laws, including requirements to re-register 90 days prior to every election. We need harsh penalties for violation of voter ID laws. We need to ensure that nobody can vote more than one time in any election. We have none of that now in most locations.

THIS time, Dems and independents are all outraged at the treatment of Hillary and it has enabled them to open their eyes to the truth of the thuggish tactics of the DNC and of Obama in particular. You can see the anger at the website, these people mostly have been dems all their lives and now they have been posted many truths about Obama and also PRO things about Sarah Palin. THAT is a first as far as I know happening within the democrat party and these people are ticked off big time.

Some are outraged at the Dem tactics and some are outraged by the treatment of women by the MSM. And once they got the notice that Obama was to be the nominee, they trashed Hillary. And I don't have to tell you what they did to Sarah.

What we can do is this, share these stories with others, send links in emails to friends and family, especailly any that are or have been democtats or independents. People need to be inoformed what has been going on.

Here is the page with the video full length and also shorter versions of some of those speaking on the main full length video.

The first time I posted about this was on July 9th.

Napolitano Offers To Help Put Stop To Illegal Border Crossings — in Saudi Arabia

Napolitano offers to help put stop to illegal border crossings — in Saudi Arabia (Not Arizona)

World Tribune


The United States government, which has difficulty controlling its own borders, has agreed to help Saudi Arabia secure its dangerous border areas near Yemen.

"It is a very rough border, very difficult to protect from illegal crossings," U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

In late May, Ms. Napolitano met Saudi leaders to discuss a range of security programs, including training, joint exercises, intelligence and arms sales. Officials said both the Americans and Saudis agreed that the Iranian-backed Shi'ite insurgency from Yemen was the leading threat to Riyad.

Officials said Riyad and Washington were expanding cooperation in protecting the kingdom's borders from insurgents and smugglers, Middle East Newsline reported. They said the biggest threat was the Shi'ite insurgency in neighboring Yemen, which shares a 1,600-kilometer border with Saudi Arabia.

Officials acknowledged that thousands of Yemenis were infiltrating Saudi Arabia despite recent border security measures. They said many of the Yemeni infiltrators were smugglers.

"So many of our discussions were about how to protect a very tough, geological, topographical border from illegal crossings," Ms. Napolitano said during a visit to the Saudi kingdom on May 31.

Officials said Saudi Arabia and the United States were also expanding their intelligence exchange. They said the expansion began during the Yemeni Shi'ite war in southern Saudi Arabia in November 2009, which included the capture of two Saudi towns.

"We all share a concern about terrorist activity emanating from Yemen," Ms. Napolitano said. "Actions of the U.S. in Yemen are with the consent, cooperation of the government of Yemen."

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

Nappy is going to help them? The Saudi’s are so screwed. LOL

Well we all know it is just like our illegal problem and the Yemenis are only sneaking into Saudi for jobs and economic opportunity oh and obamacare - surely the Saudis are not profiling.

Earth to Janet, HOMELAND Security is just that, for our homeland.

An American Hero LTC(R) Allen West– “NAACP a Political Hack Job Group”

Florida Congressional candidate Allen West held a town hall meeting in Fort Lauderdale to address the concerns of voter who were clearly concerned about the direction the country is headed in. In true Allen West fashion, he flexed his broad knowledge of the issues and answered the questions with the utmost conviction.

Statement Condemning the NAACP Resolution by LTC Allen West (USA, Ret.)

"The NAACP has missed the target. Their target should not be the Tea Party, but instead the larger issues facing the Black community: astronomical unemployment rates (15.5%) and the breakdown of the Black family, which result in higher drop-out rates, disproportionate incarceration rates and teen pregnancy rates (12.6%). These issues should be the focus of increased scrutiny by the NAACP.
This NAACP Resolution is consistent with the Obama administration tactic of demonizing and blaming someone else for your own failures and shortcomings, and not take responsibility and accountability."

“ Unlike Congressman Ron Klein, Allen West believes that the power of the Federal Government rests in the people. A Townhall is a forum that provides constituents an opportunity to hear directly from their elected officials. Last night’s Townhall, and those that will follow, are an example of what is to come when Allen West is elected to the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Valentina Weis, Communications Director.

West spoke to a crowd of about 200 for about 20 minutes, before taking questions-questions range from Illegal Immigration, Taxes, Education and Racism. As Racism begins to peak it’s ugly head out again, West express his frustration and concern with recent racial accusations regarding the Tea Party movement and the recent NAACP resolution directed at the movement.

Obama's Next Act by Charles Krauthammer

Krauthammer warns Republicans: Don't underestimate Obama as he prepares for Act Two

Obama's Next Act

The Washington Post

by Charles Krauthammer

In the political marketplace, there's now a run on Obama shares. The left is disappointed with the president. Independents are abandoning him in droves. And the right is already dancing on his political grave, salivating about November when, his own press secretary admitted Sunday, Democrats might lose the House.

I have a warning for Republicans: Don't underestimate Barack Obama.

Consider what he has already achieved. Obamacare alone makes his presidency historic. It has irrevocably changed one-sixth of the economy, put the country inexorably on the road to national health care and, as acknowledged by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus but few others, begun one of the most massive wealth redistributions in U.S. history.

Second, there is major financial reform, which passed Congress on Thursday. Economists argue whether it will prevent meltdowns and bailouts as promised. But there is no argument that it will give the government unprecedented power in the financial marketplace. Its 2,300 pages will create at least 243 new regulations that will affect not only, as many assume, the big banks but just about everyone, including, as noted in one summary (the Wall Street Journal), "storefront check cashiers, city governments, small manufacturers, home buyers and credit bureaus."

Third is the near $1 trillion stimulus, the largest spending bill in U.S. history. And that's not even counting nationalizing the student loan program, regulating carbon emissions by Environmental Protection Agency fiat, and still-fitful attempts to pass cap-and-trade through Congress.

But Obama's most far-reaching accomplishment is his structural alteration of the U.S. budget. The stimulus, the vast expansion of domestic spending, the creation of ruinous deficits as far as the eye can see are not easily reversed.

These are not mere temporary countercyclical measures. They are structural deficits because, as everyone from Obama on down admits, the real money is in entitlements, most specifically Medicare and Medicaid. But Obamacare freezes these out as a source of debt reduction. Obamacare's $500 billion in Medicare cuts and $600 billion in tax increases are siphoned away for a new entitlement -- and no longer available for deficit reduction.

The result? There just isn't enough to cut elsewhere to prevent national insolvency. That will require massive tax increases -- most likely a European-style value-added tax. Just as President Ronald Reagan cut taxes to starve the federal government and prevent massive growth in spending, Obama's wild spending -- and quarantining health-care costs from providing possible relief -- will necessitate huge tax increases.

The net effect of 18 months of Obamaism will be to undo much of Reaganism. Both presidencies were highly ideological, grandly ambitious and often underappreciated by their own side. In his early years, Reagan was bitterly attacked from his right. (Typical Washington Post headline: "For Reagan and the New Right, the Honeymoon Is Over" -- and that was six months into his presidency!) Obama is attacked from his left for insufficient zeal on gay rights, immigration reform, closing Guantanamo -- the list is long. The critics don't understand the big picture. Obama's transformational agenda is a play in two acts.

Act One is over. The stimulus, Obamacare, financial reform have exhausted his first-term mandate. It will bear no more heavy lifting. And the Democrats will pay the price for ideological overreaching by losing one or both houses, whether de facto or de jure.

The rest of the first term will be spent consolidating these gains (writing the regulations, for example) and preparing for Act Two.

The next burst of ideological energy -- massive regulation of the energy economy, federalizing higher education and "comprehensive" immigration reform (i.e., amnesty) -- will require a second mandate, meaning reelection in 2012.

That's why there's so much tension between Obama and congressional Democrats. For Obama, 2010 matters little. If Democrats lose control of one or both houses, Obama will probably have an easier time in 2012, just as Bill Clinton used Newt Gingrich and the Republicans as the foil for his 1996 reelection campaign.

Obama is down, but it's very early in the play. Like Reagan, he came here to do things. And he's done much in his first 500 days. What he has left to do he knows must await his next 500 days -- those that come after reelection.

The real prize is 2012. Obama sees far, farther than even his own partisans. Republicans underestimate him at their peril.


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

Krauthammer is a wise man. In short, his advice is keep your powder dry. Obama does not see this as the end and neither should we. We make lite of him at our peril.

I think Krauthammer is entirely right. For one thing, Obama has been building a group of mindless sycophants and for another, the new black panthers are being allowed, even encouraged, to disruption elections. Beware. This man is evil and he is dangerous. A second Obama term would effectively end our Constitutional Republic.

Another term for that communist Obama is unthinkable. There’s a good chance he’ll destroy the country in one term. A second term would guarantee that, not only would he destroy the country, but he’d drive a stake through its heart and we’d NEVER recover from it. Truly U-N-T-H-I-N-K-A-B-L-E the damage the SOB would do with another four years.

One of the positive things we have going for us is that the American people remeber the better times of the 80s, 90s and most of the 00s and will want them back.

Obama and the democrats are Godless, anti-American, and sickly perverted.

I refuse to accept defeat. If enough people wake up and also if enough people would LOVE America, we might have a chance and then get a Republican HOUSE and SENATE elected this November. Then maybe they can vote to defund "Obamacare."

If we do not win and win big enough to really take our country back I am terrified as to what will happen. Evil people and forces are at work to literally destroy the country. They seek to revers the 234 year experiment and go back to the dark ages where power and money is always concentrated into the hands of the few and the rest are slaves.

This is why November is so important. Take the House and the Senate back. Put a stop to all this crazyness. There’s not choice here. It has to be done.

De-fund, repeal, outlaw, and ignore. We have plenty of weapons but we must be willing to use them when the time comes.

Otherwise, we face the same scenario that Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, writing about life in the old Soviet Union, described back in 1974:

Things have almost reached rock bottom. A universal spiritual death has already touched us all, and physical death will soon flare up and consume us both and our children–but as before we still smile in a cowardly way and mumble without tongues tied. But what can we do to stop it? Why haven’t we the strength? We have been so hopelessly dehumanized that for today’s modest ration of food we are willing to abandon all our principles, our souls, and all the efforts of our predecessors and all opportunities for our descendants – but just don’t disturb our fragile existence. We lack staunchness, pride and enthusiasm. We don’t even fear universal nuclear death, and we don’t fear a third world war. We have already taken refuge in the crevices. We just fear acts of civil courage.
We fear only to lag behind the herd and to take a step alone - and suddenly find ourselves without white bread, without heating gas and without a Moscow registration.
We have been indoctrinated in political courses, and in just the same way was fostered the idea to live comfortably, and all will be well for the rest of our lives. You can’t escape your environment and social conditions. Everyday life defines consciousness. ..........From Live Not By Lies. Washington Post, February 18, 1974.

Those of us who survive the mass murder and atrocity that 0bama's minders have planned for us will face something very much like this. Solzhenitsyn also said that if we submit to this, we cannot call ourselves human. And he's right.

So we need to De-fund, repeal, outlaw, and ignore. And rain hell down on those who seek to force us to do otherwise.

OMG What a LIAR! ... Rep Sheila Jackson Lee Tells NAACP: “All Those Who Wore Sheets a Long Time Ago Lifted Them Off to Wear Tea Party Clothing”

NAACP in Kansas City: Representative Sheila Jackson Lee on the tea party and human rights

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) told the NAACP this week that those who wore sheets lifted them off and are now wearing tea party clothing.

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) was part of the panel for a legislative workshop titled "Engaging Congress: the NAACP's Legislative Agenda to Achieve One Nation, One Dream". Representative Jackson-Lee spoke on the tea party movement and immigration reform among other issues:

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee: ....And I thank you professor very much. I'm going to be engaging you with those very powerful numbers that you have offered on what the tea party recognizes, uh, or is recognized as. Might I add my own P.S.? All those who wore sheets a long time ago have now lifted them off and started wearing [applause], uh, clothing, uh, with a name, say, I am part of the tea party.

Don't you be fooled. [voices: "That's right.", applause] Those who used to wear sheets are now being able to walk down the aisle and speak as a patriot because you will not speak loudly about the lack of integrity of this movement. Don't let anybody tell you that those who spit on us as we were walking to vote on a health care bill for all of America or those who said Congresswoman Jackson-Lee's braids were too tight in her hair had anything to do with justice and equality and empowerment of the American people. Don't let them fool you on that [applause]....

....But let me just say this. We have had a challenging time with African-Americans on the question of immigration. As it first begun, uh, it looked as if it was a job killer bill for all of you. It looked as if these were folk who were interlopers who were attempting to move in on your territory. My brothers and sisters, once they begin to divide us [voices: "That's right."], once they begin to point out this one and that one [voices: "Yes."], for many of you don't realize that immigrants are Haitians, they are Liberians, they're Nigerians, and they come to this nation as we did, first in the bottom of a belly of slave boat, to make for a greater time. Wouldn't it be better if we linked arms with them to find the justice that is [inaudible] our people. [applause]....

....Immigration reform is not something we should be frightened about. We should grab it and make it ours and make it work for us as it works for those who are seeking a better life. Now let me just pose why you should look to this, uh, if you can't bring yourself to, uh, use the terminology civil rights, uh, then use the terminology human rights and human dignity. For I would compare two disparate situations which will hopefully turn the light bulb on - Arizona, there might be some of our constituents saying, go ahead, right on. But if you understand what the Arizona law says, and thank you NAACP, it says that if you as a police officer, police state that we are fighting against [voices: "Yes." "That's right."], all the places that we look askance and say oh my goodness, look what they're doing in Sudan. But if you are in Arizona the police officer has a right, if they have reasonable suspicion, and I am strong supporter of law enforcement, I'm on the Judiciary, I want them to be treated fairly, but every human being has the ability to have human if they have reasonable suspicion, uh, masterful attorney, they can stop you, they can ask you papers that you left at home because you were going to Seven Eleven, they can arrest you criminally and immigration in the United States is a civil responsibility, it is not a criminal responsibility unless you are someone who perpetrated a criminal act, but they can arrest you criminally, put you in jail and throw you out of the country....

Do you see where I'm coming from when you talk about immigration reform? That we can't push any of this off because the tea party and others will say that is great, we want to divide you along those lines.
I remember very, uh, conspicuously going out, uh, on the, uh, uh, veranda or going out on the grounds of the Congress on that Sunday when we voted on the health care bill to engage these wonderful Americans. And I really mean that I was sincerely trying to glean from them what their angst was. And there were a few sprinkled people of color. Of course, is a democracy and they're allowed to be there. The only thing I could get from them in responding to my question of do you understand what the bill was, was the flipping of the bird. You all understand what the bird is? [voice: "Right."] Everybody got to understand what the bird is. All right. Nobody understands what the bird, some do. But, in any event, they were [laughter], Pastor, [voice: "I understand."] that is the only thing that I could get. That was, uh, some are still looking dumbfounded, the finger, uh, was the only thing that I could get. [laughter] Um, and I could not get anyone to communicate why they were so angry about this health care bill which was going to provide them with an opportunity.

I say this to say, that when you look at immigration, look at the fine line. It is the underpinnings of divisiveness, it is the underpinnings of seeking to lock up people for their distinction, and it is the underpinnings of confusion, uh, and, uh, if you will, uh, abject unfairness....
....Many times, uh, the NAACP will be challenged and say what are they in this business for? Reverend, this is not, uh, a civil rights issue. [voice: "That's right."] Don't let anybody tell you what your business is. [applause, voices: "That's right."] Don't let anybody tell the NAACP [applause] what your business is about. [applause]....


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

These black democrat leaders are liars and are just sick, sick people. When I first saw this it just turned my stomach, I just don't understand how a person can think like this and even worse how a person can outright LIE like this. How do they stand themselves, how do they do such things like these lies we have been hearing so much and not fear God will send them immediately to hell.

To even THINK of this outlandish lie in the first place is shocking, and then to say that lie outloud to a freaking group as gospel fact......OMG.

Tragic how the NAACP is the new KKK. Both Democrat organizations. Both race obsessed. Both addicted to intimidation.

You are the only who thinks about your color. The only time I think of your color is when you bring it up. Why should your color even matter?

The communists are trying to start a race war, that is plain. The target of their inciteful comments is the black community, not the Tea Party.

Racism and race hatred are the core values of the Democratic Party. They stir up racial hatred and racial violence.
What do KKK member Robert Byrd, Rev Wright, Louis Farrakhan, the New Black Panther Party and Sheila Lee have in common? They are all racists, they are all part of the Democrat Party and they are all Obama supporters.

What?! FBI Weblinks Promote TERRORIST William Ayers, and Agent KILLER Leonard Peltier

What?! FBI weblinks promote Ayers, Peltier

Unrepentant terrorist lauded, freedom sought for convicted killer of 2 agents

The website for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is assigned to protect the United States and enforce its laws, links to sites that laud the work of unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and promote freedom for convicted agent-killer Leonard Peltier.

The issue was highlighted by researcher and writer Phil Kent, who heads a communications company in a lengthy career that includes a stint as a press secretary to a U.S. senator, years of writing for the Augusta, Ga., Chronicle, the presidency of the American Research Foundation and serving as spokesman for Americans for Immigration Control.

His report was documented by WND, which confirmed that the FBI website page discussing hate crimes lists as a "resource" the Southern Poverty Law Center, a radically liberal organization that according to its own site "is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry … using litigation, education and other forms of advocacy."

A project of the SPLC, its "Tolerance" website, features a laudatory profile of Ayers from 1998 titled "An Unconditional Embrace."

The website calls Ayers "a civil rights organizer, radical anti–Vietnam War activist, teacher and author." Ayers was responsible for bombings of the New York City police headquarters in 1970, the U.S. Capitol in 1971 and the Pentagon in 1972 and later was quoted as saying he didn't think he did enough.

The profile tells how Ayers co-founded the Small Schools Workshop to reform education systems "by restructuring large, factory-model schools into teacher-directed, intimate learning environments" and how he "helps aspiring teachers recognize and tap the potential of every child."

The United website also features Peltier's letter to Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

~ snipet ~
Kent's video questions the FBI's Web links in light of its official mission to "protect and defend the United States against terrorist and foreign-intelligence threats, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of the Untied States, and to provide leadership and criminal-justice services to federal, state, municipal and international agencies and partners."

"Is the FBI showing leadership to other law-enforcement agencies when it recommends 'resources' that promote a terror bomber and the defenders of cop killers?" he asks.

"Why is the FBI recommending a website that tells children to go visit the defenders of these cop killers?"

And, "Should American taxpayers subsidize the promotion of organizations that defend domestic terrorist and cop killers?"

The FBI media office, contacted by WND and asked for comment, transferred a reporter to an answering machine and then declined to return the call.

America's Enemy Obama Gets His Wish ~ Congress OKs Wall St. Crackdown, Consumer Guards

Congress OKs Wall St. crackdown, consumer guards

Congress on Thursday passed the stiffest restrictions on banks and Wall Street since the Great Depression, clamping down on lending practices and expanding consumer protections.... ( and blah blah blah ~ Wild Thing )

At a whopping 2,300 pages, the legislation is designed to rein in big banks and protect consumers in hopes of averting a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis. Its ultimate impact, however, will depend on the government regulators assigned to implement it.

It now goes to the White House for President Barack Obama's signature, expected as early as Wednesday.

The law will give the government new powers to break up companies that threaten the economy, create a new agency to guard consumers in their financial transactions and shine a light into shadow financial markets that escaped the oversight of regulators. The vote came on the same day that Goldman Sachs & Co. agreed to pay a record $550 million to settle charges that it misled buyers of mortgage-related investments.

From storefront payday lenders to the biggest banking and investment houses on Wall Street, few players in the financial world are immune to the bill's reach. Consumer and investor transactions, whether simple debit card swipes or the most complex securities trades, face new safeguards or restrictions.

A powerful council of regulators would be on the lookout for risks across the finance system. Large, failing financial institutions would be liquidated and the costs assessed on their surviving peers. The Federal Reserve is getting new powers while falling under greater congressional scrutiny.

"I'm about to sign Wall Street reform into law, to protect consumers and lay the foundation for a stronger and safer financial system, one that is innovative, creative, competitive and far less prone to panic and collapse," Obama said.
"Unless your business model depends on cutting corners or bilking your customers, you have nothing to fear."

Republicans said the bill is a vast federal overreach that will drive financial-sector jobs overseas. Before the final vote was even cast, House Republican leader John Boehner called for its repeal.

"The law will give the government new powers to break up companies that threaten the economy"

BUT the thing is OBAMA IS THE FREAK that is threatening the economy and business and the AMERICAN DREAM.

Another monster, phone book-sized bill we "needed to pass to see what's in it" and "how it works." This bill has DISASTER written all over it. Two Thousand Three Hundred Pages. Passed in a matter of days. More clowerd/piven.

Stock Markets were in free fall after the vote.

And of course the banks will pass along every single cent to customers, bye bye free checking,bye bye sign up bonuses,bye bye a bunch of tellers (more unemployment)...just what the witch doctor obama ordered.

We are getting Communism via regulation. It’s two steps forward, and another step forward. When these creeps are done, China will be a freer place to live.

And the two rinos this time that voted AGAINST AMERICA........Scott Brown and Snowe.

Brown can take his pickup and drive off a short pier. And he can spare us the bullshit about reading the bill, blah blah, working together, blah blah, compromise, independent, blah blah.

Hey Scott, you were elected for one reason and one reason only. To be the swing vote to STOP ALL Obama legislation. You are epic fail!

This monster bill will not only effect our stock market but also the European markets, and the major East Asian markets.

Obama is KILLING our country!

Janet Napolitano Won't Say if Arizona Boycott Should Be Ended

Greta asks if SB1070 racially profiles, she gets no answer, then asks if the Arizona boycott should be ended, no answer there either.


Greta: "Does SB1070 racially profile?"

Napolitano: "Uh, I think uh, that is uh, not, uh uh, the central thesis of the government's uh uh, concern about 1070"

Greta: "In light of these boycotts and all the upset in the nation, should the boycotts be ended?"

Napolitano: "Uh, you know, that's up to those who, uh uh, are doing them"

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

Hey Janet how about you go walking around where the illegal drug cartel hangs out, and I mean unprotected, no body guards and see how safe you feel.

Just like her master’s voice. When faced with a tough question she spends five minutes trying to bury it with endless words.

She was so determined not to answer some of Greta’s questions that in some of her answers she could not even coherently form a sentence.

It is frightening to think of the responsibility she has in view of her manifest incompetence.

Former Governor of Arizona, Janet Napolitano, is such a partisan hack, ideologue ass kisser she can't even support her home state!

How in Heaven’s name did that dude man/woman whatever she is, ever get elected governor of Arizona? She is a complerte and utter disaster.

BP Says Oil Flow Has Stopped as Cap Is Tested

BP Says Oil Flow Has Stopped as Cap Is Tested

BP said Thursday that it had capped its hemorrhaging well, at least temporarily, marking the first time in 86 days that oil was not gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.

Oil stopped flowing around 2:25 p.m. when the last of several valves was closed on a cap at the top of the well, said Kent Wells, a senior vice president for BP.

The announcement came after a series of failed attempts to cap or contain the runaway well that tested the nation’s patience. Mr. Wells emphasized that pressure tests were being conducted to determine the status of the well, which is now sealed like a soda bottle. BP and the government could decide to allow the oil to flow again and try to collect all of it; they could allow the oil to flow and, if tests show the well can withstand the pressure from the cap, close the well during hurricanes; or they could leave the well closed permanently.

The last option seems unlikely, but whatever the decision, the cap is an interim measure until a relief well can plug the leak for good.

“I am very pleased that there’s no oil going into the Gulf of Mexico,” Mr. Wells said, “but we just started the test and I don’t want to create a false sense of excitement.”

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

I sure hope it works . The other big problem is obama, the drill hating, oil industry hating garbage excuse for a human being that he is.

In the end it was stopped by good men and women who worked their butts off. Outside the industry none will ever get credit for it. Here's a toast or the next one to them. Obama and his minions deserve none.

Pelosi and Gibbs May Need Beer Summit

Pelosi and Gibbs May Need Beer Summit

Weekly Standard

by Mary Katharine Ham

It's definitely going to take Obama's superior conflict management skills to smooth this over. Democrats are not-so-privately fuming over Robert Gibbs' admission on "Meet the Press" this week that Dems could lose the House.

"How could [Gibbs] know what is going on in our districts?" Pelosi told her members in the caucus meeting in the basement of the Capitol Tuesday night. "Some may weigh his words more than others. We have made our disagreement known to the White House."...

Pelosi also accused the White House of playing favorites with the Senate, where President Barack Obama served. She said that the White House gives help to Senate candidates while making damaging comments about House Democrats' chances in November.


Democrats still fuming over Gibbs comments

But senior Democratic officials on Capitol Hill said it's one thing for a pundit to state the obvious about the state of play in the election and quite another for a top White House official to offer an assessment that may depress the party's base just as officials hope to start revving liberals up.
"Members were hot - hot, hot, hot," one senior Democratic official told CNN about the private meeting Tuesday where House Democrats directed their anger at Dan Turton, a White House aide who attended the session...
The fear now among some top Democrats, in the words of one top party official, is that the Gibbs comments will "give the Republicans a big fundraising boost" as perception builds that Democrats are in even deeper trouble than already expected.

For a party relying on rallying its base to prevent a GOP wave, the message that the House could already be gone coming from the top of the Democratic Party— from the right-hand man of the guy who's supposed to inspire all these Democrats ala 2008—is not helpful, even if it is obvious.Steny Hoyer and other Dems disagreed with Gibbs' assessment more politely in public.

"Do I think he’s right in that there are enough seats in play? Probably close,” Hoyer said, “The fact that they’re in play does not mean by any stretch of the imagination that I think we’re going to lose the House.”

At the White House briefing today, Gibbs said he hasn't spoken to Pelosi about his "Meet the Press" appearance but would if given the opportunity. He described their relationship as "cordial."Funny, that's the same word Gov. Jan Brewer always uses to describe conversations with the administration officials who are suing her. Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming about Republican infighting.


Pelosi Slams Gibbs for ‘Politically Inept’ House Forecast

CQ Politics

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) slammed White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs during Tuesday night’s House Democratic Caucus meeting for saying Sunday that Democrats could lose control of the House in November.

Several Democratic sources in the room described a testy scenario that started with Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. (N.J.) criticizing Gibbs for saying on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that there is “no doubt there’s enough seats in play” to allow for a House GOP takeover in 2012. Things heated up as Pelosi jumped in and blasted Gibbs for making “politically inept” comments, according to one source.

“It was bad,” another source said. “She was like: ‘I don’t appreciate it. I don’t know who this guy is. I’ve never met him before. And he’s saying that we’re going to lose the House.’”

A spokesman for Pelosi declined to comment Tuesday night.

Pelosi reportedly said Gibbs’ comments were particularly damaging because they give ammunition to Republicans trying to make the case that Democrats are going to lose in November. “Someone from the White House says it, and [House Minority Whip Eric] Cantor says it, so now you have both sides saying something,” the source said. “So she was very upset.”

At one point, the Speaker turned to Dan Turton, the White House legislative liaison, and demanded to know whether Gibbs was speaking for the White House or for himself. Turton said he did not think Gibbs’ comments were a coordinated statement, the source said


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

Looks like Obama is runiing out of room under the bus.

It’s telling that they are more upset about losing seats in Congress than about a black racist wanting to kill ‘crackers’.

She was like: ‘I don’t appreciate it. I don’t know who this guy is. I’ve never met him before. And he’s saying that we’re going to lose the House.’”

She doesn’t know who he is?! LOL. She’s even crazier than I thought!

Obama Won’t Sue Sanctuary Cities – But Will Sue Arizona For Upholding the Law

Sanctuary cities safe from law

Obama says Arizona's policy 'actually interferes'

The Washington Times

A week after suing Arizona and arguing that the state's immigration law creates a patchwork of rules, the Obama administration said it will not go after so-called sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with the federal government on immigration enforcement, on the grounds that they are not as bad as a state that "actively interferes."

“There is a big difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law,” Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., told The Washington Times. “That’s what Arizona did in this case.”
But the author of the 1996 federal law that requires states and localities to cooperate says the administration is misreading it, and says drawing a distinction between sanctuary cities and Arizona is “flimsy justification” for suing the state.
“For the Justice Department to suggest that they won’t take action against those who passively violate the law –who fail to comply with the law — is absurd,” said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee and chief author of the 1996 immigration law. “Will they ignore individuals who fail to pay taxes? Will they ignore banking laws that require disclosure of transactions over $10,000? Of course not.”

74% of Americans either support Arizona immigration law or say it doesn’t go far enough.

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

This is a HUGE problem when the chief law enforcement officer attacks those who are trying to ensure the law is enforced and that is exactly what Obama is doing.

Obama and Holder's "Justice" Department is a racist, Marxist sick joke.

I had a gut feeling they were somehow going to have to justify suing a state that’s upholding federal law vs. not suing cities that interfere with federal law.

Can those two racist bastards Obama and Holder be sued personally for FAILURE to enforce the laws they are charged with enforcing??? Just a thought.

82 Year Old Man Facing Serious Charges For Shooting At Illegal Alien Thieves


Legal analyst Dan Recht said he believes the Jefferson County District Attorney is "seriously overcharging" a Wheat Ridge homeowner, accused of attempted first degree murder for shooting at two thieves.

82-year-old Robert Wallace said he fired two shots at two men when they tried to run him over while stealing his flatbed trailer.

Wallace now faces twelve felony counts, including four counts of attempted first degree murder, for what he described as an act of defending his property and his life. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

One of the thieves, Damacio Torres later admitted to the theft. He and his partner in crime, Alvara Cardano both have prior arrest records and are believed to be in the country illegally.

But they are not facing any charges.

Recht said, in his experience, prosecutors overcharge cases to force a person to plea bargain. He argued that it's just not right to put a person through that kind of mental and financial stress.

Jefferson County DA, Scott Storey, indicated he'll take a closer look at his office's decision to throw the book at the homeowner and hinted the charges could be reduced. He said the investigation continues into the confessed thieves.


82-year-old Robert Wallace said in February that he looked out his window and saw two men hooking his flatbed trailer up to their pickup. He yelled at them to stop, but they sped away, stealing his trailer. He told police he fired two shots at the pickup.

He is facing life in prison for protecting his property against thugs who were attempting to steal some of his property.

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

Obama's America!

Illegal aliens with prior records who admit guilt don’t get charged, while a homeowner defending his property gets charged with attempted first degree murder for almost being run over and deciding to defend his property. SHEESH!

Do these idiots really not understand what’s coming down the pike if the general populace loses faith in the rule of law?

Arizona Governor can force Obama to prove he’s eligible…or not!

Arizona Governor can force Obama to prove he’s eligible…or not!

The Post and Email newspaper


Dear Editor: The following email was sent to, Governor Brewer’s press secretary:

July 11,2010

Dear Mr. Senseman,

As you know, there are many unanswered questions about Barack Hussein Obama’s constitutional qualifications to act as President of the United States. Governor Brewer, or any sitting governor, for that matter, has unique standing to challenge Obama on this issue and resolve the constitutional crisis he has perpetrated on the nation by his refusal to prove that he is a “natural born Citizen” by filing a Writ of Quo Warranto.

The American people are looking to Governor Brewer to defend her state as she is doing, but also to challenge a man who has most likely assumed the office of President through dissembling and deceit, wire fraud, election fraud, and document fraud.

There is a tremendous amount of circumstantial and other evidence which points to a foreign birth for Obama, and by his own admission, he was born a dual citizen. He has also carefully described himself as “a native citizen of the United States of America” but not a “natural born Citizen.”

Article II, Section 1, paragraph 5 of the U.S. Constitution states:

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

It is impossible for Obama to be a “natural born Citizen” if he was born with dual citizenship, and “native born” is not the same as “natural born.” Since he has never shown his original birth certificate, we also do not know his actual age.

Congress refused to check on Obama’s qualifications for office, despite thousands of requests to do so by concerned constituents before the certification of electoral votes in January 2009.

It makes no sense to mount an expensive legal defense when Governor Brewer could simply ask Obama “By what authority” his Department of Justice is suing her state and naming her as a defendant. In fact, if Obama is a usurper to the presidency, he has no authority to do anything nor to direct anyone else to act. If that is the case, Obama and his entire government must be removed from office and a new presidential election held.

You may have read that Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.) has called for Obama and his regime to do just that, and he believes that Obama is hiding something very significant about his background from the American people. For someone to spend almost $2,000,000 to hide his birth certificate and other records, he certainly must be.

All the governor needs to do is file a Quo Warranto. That’s it, and the lawsuit will be history. So will this false presidency and his Marxist regime which has forced all matter of unconstitutional and injurious legislation upon this nation. Attorneys Donofrio and Pidgeon are superb constitutional lawyers who reportedly have offered to help write the Quo Warranto filing.

A Lt. Col. with 18 years of service in the Army is going to be court-martialed over Obama’s refusal to prove he is constitutionally qualified, and a retired Navy Lt. Cmdr. has been brought up on false charges in a crooked kangaroo court for filing a Treason complaint against Obama 16 months ago which to this day remains unanswered.

Mr. Senseman, this cannot stand. This is not justice for either one of these fine men, and it is not justice for the 310,000,000 Americans who deserve a “natural born” president, not a usurper with foreign allegiances who was most likely born in a foreign country and is nothing more than a Chicago street thug who mesmerized the sleeping masses.

Governor Brewer can stop this charade. I hope and pray that she will do so. The truth will set us all free.

Quo Warranto legal definition.


A legal proceeding during which an individual's right to hold an office or governmental privilege is challenged.

In old English practice, the writ of quo warranto—an order issued by authority of the king—was one of the most ancient and important writs. It has not, however, been used for centuries, since the procedure and effect of the judgment were so impractical.

Currently the former procedure has been replaced by an information in the nature of a quo warranto, an extraordinary remedy by which a prosecuting attorney, who represents the public at large, challenges someone who has usurped a public office or someone who, through abuse or neglect, has forfeited an office to which she was entitled. In spite of the fact that the remedy of quo warranto is pursued by a prosecuting attorney in a majority of jurisdictions, it is ordinarily regarded as a civil rather than criminal action. Quo warranto is often the only proper legal remedy; however, the legislature can enact legislation or provide other forms of relief.

Statutes describing quo warranto usually indicate where it is appropriate. Ordinarily it is proper to try the issue of whether a public office or authority is being abused. For example, it might be used to challenge the Unauthorized Practice of a profession, such as law or medicine. In such situations, the challenge is an assertion that the defendant is not qualified to hold the position she claims—a medical doctor, for example.

In some quo warranto proceedings, the issue is whether the defendant is entitled to hold the office he claims, or to exercise the authority he presumes to have from the government. In addition, proceedings have challenged the right to the position of county commissioner, treasurer, school board member, district attorney, judge, or tax commissioner. In certain jurisdictions, quo warranto is a proper proceeding to challenge individuals who are acting as officers or directors of business corporations.

A prosecuting attorney ordinarily commences quo warranto proceedings; however, a statute may authorize a private person to do so without the consent of the prosecutor. Unless otherwise provided by statute, a court permits the filing of an information in the nature of quo warranto after an exercise of sound discretion, since quo warranto is an extraordinary exercise of power and is not to be invoked lightly. Quo warranto is not a right available merely because the appropriate legal documents are filed. Valid reason must be indicated to justify governmental interference with the individual holding the challenged office, privilege, or license.


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

I would love to see that happen. "Hey Obama, put up (the Birth Cert.) or SHUT UP! I have no idea if this would work or be harmful to Gov. Brewer which I would not want she has been so awesome and so strong and it cannot be easy on her the stress of it all. BUT I do love the irony of a situation in which Arizona demands only one person produce his papers: Obama.

She could invite him to Arizona for a halal picnic and when he shows up arrest HIS *** for being an illegal alien. heh heh

Black Panthers, you're free to go – not so fast, Arizona by Ann Coulter

Black Panthers, you're free to go – not so fast, Arizona

by Ann Coulter

So I guess all that hysteria about the Arizona immigration law was much ado about nothing. After months of telling us that the Nazis had seized Arizona, when the Obama administration finally got around to suing, its only objection was that the law was "pre-empted" by federal immigration law.

With the vast majority of Americans supporting Arizona's inoffensive little law, the fact that Obama is suing at all suggests that he consulted exclusively with the craziest people in America before filing this complaint (which is to say, Eric Holder's Justice Department).

But apparently even they could find nothing discriminatory about Arizona's law. It's reassuring to know that, contrary to earlier indications, government lawyers can at least read English.

Instead, the administration argues, federal laws on immigration pre-empt Arizona's law under the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution.

State laws are pre-empted by federal law in two circumstances: When there is a conflict – such as "sanctuary cities" for illegals or California's medical marijuana law – or when Congress has so thoroughly regulated a field that there is no room for even congruent state laws.

Experience Coulter's wit and wisdom up close and personal as she headlines WND's Taking America Back national conference this fall!

If Obama thinks there's a conflict, I believe he's made a damning admission. There's a conflict only if the official policy of the federal government is to ignore its own immigration laws.

Only slightly less preposterous is the argument that although Arizona's law agrees with federal law, Congress has engaged in "field pre-emption" by occupying the entire field of immigration, thus prohibiting even harmonious state laws.

Ann Coulter's scathing book "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America" -- now just $4.95, while supplies last!

Field pre-emption may arise, for example, in the case of federal health and safety laws, so that manufacturers of cars, medical devices and drugs aren't forced to comply with the laws of 50 different states to sell their products nationally.

And yet, just over a year ago, the Supreme Court held that there was no "field pre-emption" even in the case of an FDA-approved anti-nausea drug because Congress had not explicitly stated that state regulation was pre-empted.

The drug, Phenergan, came with the warning that, if administered improperly (so that it enters an artery), catastrophe could ensue.

In April 2000, Phenergan was administered improperly to Diana Levine – by a clinician ignoring six separate warnings on Phenergan's label. Catastrophe ensued; Levine developed gangrene and had to have her lower arm amputated.

Levine sued the health center and clinician for malpractice, and won.

But then she also sued the drug manufacturer, Wyeth Laboratories, on the grounds that it should have included more glaring warnings about proper administration of the drug – like, I don't know, maybe a flashing neon sign on each vial.

Wyeth argued that since the Food and Drug Administration (after 54 years of study) had expressly approved the warnings as provided, state tort law was pre-empted by the federal drug regime.

But the Supreme Court held that Congress had to make pre-emption explicit, which it had not, so Levine was awarded $6.7 million from Wyeth.

If ever there were a case for "implicit pre-emption," this was it. Without federal supremacy for the FDA's comprehensive regulation of drugs, pharmaceutical companies are forever at the mercy of state and local laws – and trial lawyers – in all 50 states.

As much as I would like pharmaceutical companies to rot in hell for their support of Obamacare, I might need their drugs someday. Now, drug prices will not only have to incorporate R&D costs, but also the cost of paying for trial lawyers' Ferraris. (Perhaps that should be listed as a side effect: "Caution! Improper use may cause nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, and six new houses for John Edwards.")

But the point is: According to the Supreme Court's most recent pre-emption ruling, Arizona's law is not pre-empted because Congress did not expressly prohibit state regulation of illegal aliens. In fact, the Supreme Court has repeatedly rejected the pre-emption argument against state laws on immigrants – including laws somewhat at odds with federal law, which the Arizona law is not.

In the seminal case, De Canas v. Bica (1976), the court held 8-0 that a California law prohibiting employers from hiring illegal immigrants was not pre-empted by federal law.

The court -– per Justice William Brennan – said that the federal government's supremacy over immigration is strictly limited to: 1) a "determination of who should or should not be admitted into the country," and 2) "the conditions under which a legal entrant may remain."

So a state can't start issuing or revoking visas, but that's about all it can't do.

Manifestly, a state law about illegal immigrants has nothing to do with who enters legally or the conditions of their staying here. Illegal aliens have neither been "admitted into the country" nor are they "legal entrants."

Indeed, as Brennan noted in the De Canas case, there's even "a line of cases that upheld certain discriminatory state treatment of aliens lawfully within the United States." (You might want to jot some of this down, Mr. Holder.)

So there's no "field pre-emption" of state laws dealing with aliens, nor is there an explicit statement from Congress pre-empting state regulation of aliens.

On top of that, the Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld state laws on immigrants in the face of pre-emption challenges. Arizona's law is no more pre-empted than the rest of them.

Europe Warns Obama: This Relationship NOT Working

Europe warns Obama: this relationship not working

Europe’s disappointment with Barack Obama’s presidency is laid bare today as the EU’s most senior figure calls for a dramatic effort to revive transatlantic relations.

The President of the European Commission told The Times that the new era at the White House was in danger of becoming a “missed opportunity” for Europe.

José Manuel Barroso said that the EU-US relationship was not living up to its potential. The criticism follows a series of fundamental disagreements on how to deal with the economic crisis, climate change and trade reform.

The feelings of a deepening rift are mutual. Senior US figures said last night that Mr Obama could never live up to Europe’s sky-high expectations.

Mr Barroso revealed his frustrations with Washington during a wideranging interview with The Times in which he also admitted that the euro had acted like a “sleeping pill”, luring some countries to the edge of economic disaster with an “illusion of prosperity”.

It has been a fractious few months for EU-US relations, culminating in a fundamental clash of ideas at the G20 summit between Europe’s austerity strategy for ending the economic crisis and Mr Obama’s call to maintain fiscal stimulus.

Speaking days before David Cameron visits the White House, Mr Barroso said: “The transatlantic relationship is not living up to its potential. I think we should do much more together. We have conditions like we have never had before and it would be a pity if we missed the opportunity.”

The US defended itself forcefully against claims that it had neglected Europe. “Expectations were probably so high that they could not have been met when you looked at the European response to the election,” a senior official in the Administration told The Times.

The view from Washington is that communication with Europe on a range of crucial issues is difficult because the EU still lacks “a clear foreign policy apparatus”.

Richard Haass, head of the Council on Foreign Relations, an influential think-tank in Washington, criticised Brussels for the appointments of Herman Van Rompuy as President of the European Council and Baroness Ashton of Upholland as High Representative for Foreign Affairs.

“Europe created these posts to speak for the collective as a whole. But from the perspective of many Americans, rather than building up someone of the stature of [the former Nato Secretary-General] Javier Solana, it looks as though Europe has retreated,” he said.

Downing Street said that the relationship between Europe and America had always been built on dialogue and co-operation. “If Mr Barroso thinks that we should see more of that, we’d agree.”

A senior aide to President Sarkozy of France said: “Obama does not come from the same tradition as his predecessors. He is interested in Asia and Russia, not Europe. There is no sense of a privileged relationship. They seem to take us for granted sometimes.”

A German government official said: “If our austerity cuts lead to street demos, the protesters will be shouting out phrases they heard from Obama. How do you think that makes us feel?”

Sir Malcolm Rifkind, the former Foreign Secretary, tried to put the cooling of ties into an historical perspective. “We won the Cold War, so of course the problems of Europe cannot be as high a priority as in the past. But that’s a consequence of success, not failure,” he said.

Asked how he planned to reach out to Mr Obama — who visited Europe six times in his first year in office but was said by US analysts to have nothing to show for it — Mr Barroso said: “Of course it is a question of how the Americans are going to reach to us as well because the relationship should be perceived as mutual.”

Analysts said that the EU was naive to expect a sea change in US foreign policy just because George Bush had been replaced in the White House.

Hugo Brady, of the Centre for European Reform, said: “Obama was always overblown as a symbol because US foreign policy interests tend not to change. The US does not understand the need for everyone to be around the table at the EU, which they find as frustrating as a mini-UN where people want to talk about the good things they have done.”

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

Europe just “broke up” with Obama.

Obama beckons in a new age of Ugly American...!

This is rich!

Before we were rich and **sort of** maligned, now we’re poor and brusquely being shown the door.

He’s realllly helping us..!

LOL They were beside themselves when Obama got elected. How is that “hope and change” working out for ya, Europe?

They already gave him his Nobel Prize. They don’t expect him to earn it after the fact, do they? (He certainly didn’t earn before the fact.)

We will be decades repairing the damage of this administration.

Obama : Al Qaeda Is Racist ~ Islamic Terrorists FINALLY Managed to Offend Obama

President Obama, White House: Al Qaeda Is Racist

Political Punch

by Jack Tapper

In an interview earlier today with the South African Broadcasting Corporation to air in a few hours, President Obama disparaged al Qaeda and affiliated groups' willingness to kill Africans in a manner that White House aides say was an argument that the terrorist groups are racist.

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, "What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains."

Earlier today a senior administration official said the Obama administration believes that Al Shabaab carried out the attack.

Explaining the president's comment, an administration official said Mr. Obama "references the fact that both U.S. intelligence and past al Qaeda actions make clear that al Qaeda -- and the groups like al Shabaab that they inspire -- do not value African life. The actions of al Qaeda and the groups that it has inspired show a willingness to sacrifice innocent African life to reach their targets."

This can be seen, the official said, in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, when hundreds of Africans were killed and thousands wounded.

"Additionally, U.S. intelligence has indicated that al Qaeda leadership specifically targets and recruits black Africans to become suicide bombers because they believe that poor economic and social conditions make them more susceptible to recruitment than Arabs," the official said. "Al Qaeda recruits have said that al Qaeda is racist against black members from West Africa because they are only used in lower level operations."

"In short," the official said, "al Qaeda is a racist organization that treats black Africans like cannon fodder and does not value human life."

The president also said in the interview that "it was so tragic and ironic to see an explosion like this take place when people in Africa were celebrating and watching the World Cup take place in South Africa. On the one hand, you have a vision of an Africa on the move, an Africa that is unified, an Africa that is modernizing and creating opportunities; and on the other hand, you've got a vision of al Qaeda and Al Shabaab that is about destruction and death.

"And I think it presents a pretty clear contrast in terms of the future that most Africans want for themselves and their children," Mr. Obama said. "And we need to make sure that we are doing everything we can to support those who want to build, as opposed to want to destroy."

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

Either they blame Bush or they pull the race card.

Next up...Shabazz ranting about AQ Crackers. News at 11.

The war could be called off and Obama could simply file Hate Crime lawsuits against Al Qaeda. Eric Holder could probably put this together pretty quickly.

The underwear bomber, not something for Obama to get worked up, he would have killed mostly only white Americans. The Fort Hood killer, again, he killed American military people - Obama not too worried.

But this killing of Africans could be a big mistake by Al Qaeda - now they are making Obama mad!

AQ GOT TO, be laughing their butts off! OMG, this White House is so creative at sinking the ship even lower on a daily basis.

Awesome Megyn Kelly Shows Truth Wins Out and Leaves Kirsten Powers In The Dust on New Black Panther Case

Megyn Kelly DESTROYS Kirsten Powers on New Black Panther Case after Powers first says she doesn't believe that the incident was a clear case of voter intimidation, then one point Kelly has to threaten to cut off Powers' mic..


Megyn ABSOLUTELY SMACKS DOWN- Kirsten Powers. This is Gotta See TV- NO KIDDING!
Clueless Kirsten is a stupid deer in the headlights. Go ahead and keep blaming Bush you STUPID woman


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

Megyn is a prize fighter- and she didn't even break a sweat!

There needs to be more of this. We see way too little spine on our side of things these days.


She really nailed Powers asking if she had read the testimony...of course she hadn’t. [sound familiar?]Powers said she ‘talked’ with folks at the DOJ.

Kristen had a quiver of standard liberal talking points and Megyn demolished them one-by-one, refusing to be led off-subject.

This should be taught in schools on how to debate liberals. They always have some obscure stats or figures or talking points with which to try and change the subject whenever the interview or debate isn’t going their way.

Megyn knew her facts and did not let Kristen get off topic and she did not fall into the polite conservative trap. You have to be just as aggressive as they are and nail them down when they try and ramp it up or slither away. The important thing is to know your facts. Then not let your opponent change the subject.

Oh, and four minutes after Powers says “it wasn’t voter intimidation” she says “I didn’t say it wasn’t voter intimidation - you’re putting words in my mouth.” Good Lord, she has no short term memory over five minutes.

Time to give Kelly the 8:00 p.m. slot! instead of O'Reilly.

Thousands of Laptops Stolen During Nine-hour Heist

On March 6, as many as seven people broke into iGov Technologies at 9211 Palm River Road and stole 3,000 laptops and other electronics, according to a search warrant.

Thousands of laptops stolen during nine-hour heist


Thousands of laptops have been stolen from the Florida office of a private contractor for the U.S. military's Special Operations Command.

Surveillance cameras caught up to seven people loading the computers into two trucks for nine hours.

U.S. Special Operations Command coordinates the activities of elite units from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. A spokeswoman said Tuesday that none of the stolen laptops contained military information or software.

The Virginia-based company iGov was awarded a $450 million contract earlier this year to supply mobile technology services linking special operations troops worldwide. A company executive says iGov is cooperating with authorities and the March 6 break-in at its Tampa facility remains under investigation.

Laptops stolen from government contractor

TAMPA, Fla., July 13 (UPI) -- Thieves allegedly took an estimated 3,000 laptop computers from the Florida warehouse of a military contractor, police said.

The thieves arrived by car at iGov Technologies in Tampa, a contractor for the top secret U.S. Special Operations Command, and broke in through the roof, the St. Petersburg Times reported Monday.

The heist took place during a 9-hour period on March 6 -- a Saturday, when no one was around. The intruders loaded up two semi-trailer trucks with the computers and other equipment, police said.

The Times said the details of the alleged burglary came to light only recently, when a sheriff's detective, having notified the FBI, requested a search warrant in Hillsborough County Circuit Court to find phone records for one of the suspects, which he obtained on June 23.

The warrant sought the phone records for Oddit Perez-Reyes, 39, the owner of the car that pulled up to the warehouse, records showed.

Based on the phone information, the FBI and the Miami-Dade Police Department said they found 1,911 items of the stolen goods in a warehouse in Miami.

Earlier this year the Department of Defense awarded iGov a $450 million contract to provide mobile technology services connecting special operations troops all over the world.


Thieves swipe thousands of laptops from Special Ops contractor

TAMPA — The thieves hit on a weekend when no one was around.

The target: a military contractor for the super secret Special Operations Command, the elite commandos who help coordinate the war on terror.

The intruders entered through the roof, gaining access to iGov Technologies, which occupies suite 110 in the beige corporate center at 9211 Palm River Road.

For the next nine hours, they loaded up more than 3,000 laptop computers and other equipment into two waiting semitrailer trucks .

Those details came to light only recently, when a Hillsborough County sheriff's detective filed a search warrant in Hillsborough County Circuit Court seeking phone records for one of the suspects.

What was on the laptop computers? Was it a crime of economics or a crime of security? Did the burglary compromise the safety of any troops?

The answers remained a mystery Monday.

A SOCom spokeswoman said officials are aware of the iGov break-in, but she could not immediately provide a response.

Earlier this year, iGov was awarded a $450-million contract by the Department of Defense to supply mobile technology services linking special operations troops all over the world.

The company is headquartered in McLean, Va., with locations in Springfield, Va., and near Tampa. An iGov facility manager referred calls to the corporate office. Officials there did not return a call for comment.

According to the warrant, the operation went down on March 6, a Saturday. A surveillance camera captured images as a red Lincoln Navigator drove up to the business and as many as seven people piled out.

They broke in through the roof and spent nine hours gathering loot, which included about 3,000 Panasonic Toughbook laptops and other electronics.

The Sheriff's Office notified the FBI. Sheriff's Detective David Thatcher obtained a search warrant June 23.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said that she was unaware of the theft and that Thatcher no longer had the case. It was assigned to a second detective who also was transferred, and she did not know which detective was now handling it.

The Sheriff's Office records division was unable to find a report of the break-in on Monday. A clerk did locate a record of when the call was received and which officers responded.

The warrant seeks phone records for the owner for the Lincoln Navigator, a man named Oddit Perez-Reyes, 39.

Perez-Reyes' cell phone was in contact with four phone numbers the day of the heist. Satellite records tracked each of the four phones to the iGov office that day, the warrant stated.

Sprint Communications said the phones were on prepaid accounts and cautioned that subscriber names could be fictitious, the warrant said.

Detectives filed for access to Perez-Reyes' cell phone for records that include contact information, messages, calls and pictures and videos.

As a result of the investigation, the FBI and the Miami-Dade Police Department located a warehouse in Miami that was used to store the stolen property, the warrant stated, and about 1,911 items were recovered.

A spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department said Monday he could find no record of property seized at the warehouse within the past four months.

Hillsborough sheriff's records show iGov's facility manager, Mike Kalinowski, reported the missing computers to the Sheriff's Office after he arrived at work March 8.

However, when a Times reporter asked him about the case, Kalinowski responded: "I don't even know anything about that."


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


They have everyone who every email/text/voice call records in analytics systems 24/7. This had to be an inside job.

They say they don't know if any data was compromised? They don't even know what detective is investigating the case?

This stinks of an inside job all the way!

It says it happened on March 6th. And this is the first they are sharing about what happened.

Update On Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna and The “Leavenworth 10"

On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq.

Past article in case anyone is not aware of what happened. ~ Wild Thing

Withheld Evidence Could Free Soldier Convicted of Iraqi Insurgent Murder

14 Jan 2010

Vicki Behenna, a federal prosecutor appeared at a clemency hearing in Washington on Dec. 7, seeking to have her son freed or have his sentence reduced.

There is something seriously wrong with the execution of this nation's code of military justice — it is being used against the very people it is meant to protect.

Case in point: the imprisonment of a heroic Army officer for killing a murderous Iraqi insurgent who had killed two of his men in a cowardly attack that wounded two others.

This case is reminiscent of the disgraceful prosecution of officers and enlisted United States Marines for having killed 24 Iraqis, among them armed terrorists, in a confrontation in Haditha which resulted in all charges being dropped in eight of the cases.

Only two defendants remain under the gun wielded by the fanatics of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Bush Secretary of the Navy and only Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani, already cleared of serious charges but punished anyway and Sgt. Frank Wuterich remain under the federal guns.

Last March, Army Ranger 1st Lt. Michael Behenna was socked with a 25-year prison sentence later reduced to 20 years for having allegedly murdered a known al-Qaida operative Ali Mansur, who was operating an al-Qaida cell inside Behenna's area of operations.

It was alleged that Mansur organized an attack on Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which left two of Behenna's soldiers dead and another two wounded.

Mansur was first taken into custody and then later ordered released and Behenna was instructed to escort him to his home.

En route there Behenna questioned Mansur, seeking to obtain information about his terrorist confederates and the identity of those financially backing them.

Up until then there is no dispute about the facts of the matter. It was what happened then that created the controversy. During this interrogation, Behenna said that Mansur suddenly lunged at him, and he shot him in self-defense.

The government, however charged Behenna with premeditated murder. Shockingly, in the trial that followed, expert testimony that would have fully exonerated Behenna was withheld from the court.

The prosecution insisted that Behenna stripped Mansur naked, seated him on a rock and executed him.

One of the government’s expert witnesses, a highly respected Forensic expert, Dr. Herbert Leon MacDonell, Director of the Laboratory of Forensic Science in Corning, N.Y, insisted Behenna was innocent and he could prove it.

His testimony would have proven that the angle of the gun shots and the blood spatter were consistent with self-defense not premeditated murder.

But after telling prosecutors what the forensic evidence showed — that Behenna was guiltless — this expert witness was sent packing.

Dr. MacDonnell told Behenna's lawyer Jack Zimmerman, who had successfully represented one of the Haditha Marines, that he fully agreed with Behenna's account of what happened, essentially destroying the government’s case he had been called to support.

Incredibly, the key witness in the case was not called to testify in the case and was sent home.

Before he retrieved his coat from the prosecution room he told the three prosecutors that, "The explanation that Lt. Behenna just testified to was the exact same scenario I told you yesterday. Lt Behenna is telling the truth."

Behenna, he said, was not guilty, dropping a bombshell on the government's case.

Despite the fact that prosecutors must disclose any exculpatory evidence they have to the defense, they denied having any such evidence despite having been told by their own expert witness that Behenna’s explanation was the only logical explanation.

Prosecutors withholding of this evidence allowed them to argue that Behenna executed Mansur while seated when the forensic experts, including MacDonnell, agree that Mansur was standing with his arms outstretched when shot.

In a sworn affidavit, dated April 21, MacDonnell explained how knowledge he acquired while waiting to testify in the case could have changed dramatically its outcome.

"When I heard Lt. Behenna describe what happened, I did not say other witnesses were lying, or that my conclusion was based on my opinion of the lieutenant’s credibility. My expert opinion was based on the fact that the lieutenant’s description as to how the shooting occurred fit the physical evidence."

Lt. Behenna was convicted of unpremeditated murder and assault by a military panel of seven officers, none of whom had ever seen a minute of combat or ever heard a word of MacDonald's suppressed testimony.

He was sentenced and now remains confined at the U.S. Army garrison in central of Kansas, largely due to the fact the evidence that would have proved he was not guilty was never allowed to be heard during the court-martial.

What happened here was a gross miscarriage of justice — a frightening example of government prosecutors running amok as they had in the shameful Haditha cases. The government's blatant suppression of evidence that proved Behenna's innocence must not go unpunished and Behenna must be freed.

His mother Vicki Behenna is a widely acclaimed assistant United States attorney who helped prosecute Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and his father, Scott Behenna, a retired special agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, who now works with the FBI as an FBI intelligence analyst, charge that prosecutors appear to have committed a Brady Act violation by failing to disclose such information to defense lawyers as MacDonell's crucial sworn affidavit that proves that 1st Lt. Behenna is not guilty.


UPDATE on the latest on Michael's appeal.

Michael’s appellate brief was filed on December 22, 2009 and the military’s response brief was due January 21, 2010. The military asked for and was granted a three-month extension to April 21, 2010.

Then sometime in early April the military filed for and received yet another three-month extension making their response brief not due until July 22, 2010!

But most amazing of all was that the extension was granted without notice being provided to Michael’s attorneys to argue against it. From the start of this hell we have tried to put our trust in the military justice system. But time and time again this ‘justice’ system has failed this young man who defended our liberties in the face of a ruthless enemy. First it was the withholding of evidence in Michael’s trial and now this. The government will have had seven months to respond to Michael’s appellate brief when it should have taken only seven weeks. It appears to us that the Army is deliberately doing everything it can to delay Michael’s appeal process. And for what end you ask? We may never know, just as we may never know what was really behind the Army prosecuting Michael in the first place. But in the face of these delay tactics we have become even more convinced of the strength of Michael’s appeal (which the military is struggling to counter.)

As Thomas Paine wrote, 'Tyranny is not easily conquered, but our consolation is that the harder the conflict, the greater the triumph.'

Despite everything Michael is faring well. He draws strength from the many letters he receives and your continued correspondence will help him leave Leavenworth the way he arrived – with his head held high. Michael ‘celebrates’ his 27th birthday behind bars on May 18th. This will be his second birthday in Leavenworth Prison and is yet another reminder of how long he has been away from family and friends.

Please consider sending Michael a birthday card to let him know he is not forgotten and to encourage him to keep the faith. You can send your cards and letters to:

Letters from you are the only real way to convey to Michael that we care and are fighting on his behalf to right this injustice. He has no access to the internet so he will not see the comments posted on this website and he can not receive email. Thank you for taking the time to let Michael know that you appreciate him putting his life on the line in Iraq for our freedom and that you are now fighting for him!

From their website: ( there is also a breakdown with dates of what has happened at the website)


On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq. Mansur was known to be a member of an Al Qaeda cell operating in the lieutenant’s area of operation and was suspected to have organized an attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which killed two U.S. soldiers and injured two more. Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.

During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.

Not only is this a miscarriage of justice on the behalf of Lt. Behenna, who was acting to prevent further loss of life in his platoon, it is demoralizing to the U.S. troops who continue to fight on behalf of the freedom and security of our nation. Whether it is U.S. border patrol agents, members of the armed forces, or FBI agents, no individual who is serving on the frontlines in the War on Terror should be so blatantly mistreated.


July 10, 2010 UPDATE

To all Lt Michael Behenna supporters,the Freedom Ride for the Leavenworth 10 is on

The Ride is on!!! FREEDOM RIDE FOR THE LEAVENWORTH 10 is set for September 4, 2010 in Leavenworth, Kansas. Motorcycles and vehicles of all kinds are welcome. A new website has been created to keep you updated on this important and exciting event as well as to tell the stories of each of the Leavenworth 10 soldiers ( We already have a commitment from Congressional candidate Lt. Colonel Allen West (Florida) to speak, in addition to the families of the Leavenworth 10. We have received many responses from the media and people who want to participate in this event so we know it is going to be very successful.

The intent of the Freedom Ride is to bring awareness to how our soldiers are being imprisoned for killing the enemy during a time of war which one news commentator compared to ‘giving speeding tickets at a NASCAR race’. These soldiers, serving multiple deployments, are provided complex and ever changing Rules of Engagement and then have to deal with untenable “Catch and Release” policies against an enemy the US military General’s have yet to figure out how to defeat. An enemy that these same General’s have recently decided to release back to the battlefield on a ‘pledge’ that they won’t rejoin the Taliban. This while our soldiers who took actions to protect themselves and their fellow soldiers are imprisoned from 10 to 40 years in Leavenworth and receive no clemency whatsoever.

The FREEDOM RIDE will originate in many states across this nation and culminate in Leavenworth on the morning of September 4th. We will assemble south of Leavenworth on HWY 73 and move in a procession north through the city of Leavenworth and then past the Leavenworth Base and Disciplinary Barracks where our soldiers are being held. We know that traveling long distances on a holiday weekend to participate in this event is not without its challenges; but I want you to know how much this ride means to these soldiers who are imprisoned at Leavenworth. By your show of support each of these soldiers will feel some hope in the knowledge that they have not been forgotten and that you have their back. They have become casualties of war by their own government. We need to show them that ‘we the people’ are fighting to get them exonerated. If you are not able to attend the Freedom Ride then please consider making a donation at to help underwrite this important event.

As you think about this Independence Day consider that these 10 soldiers love the United States of America and chose to volunteer their service to this country. They put themselves in harm’s way to protect the freedoms we all cherish. Despite the fact that our military has construed their activities to be that of a criminal please know that each of them took action in a war zone because they thought it was the right thing to do and that their actions were not for personal gain. The military’s second-guessing of their actions does not erase the many years of honorable and distinguished service of these soldiers. Please remember each of these 10 soldiers and all our military on this FREEDOM holiday.

It’s Time to Stand Up For the Leavenworth 10!!!

Scott and Vicki Behenna


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

Lt Colonel Allen West will be speaking at the L10 Freedom Ride 2010.

The Leavenworth 10, a group of soldiers/Marines incarcerated at Ft. Leavenworth for killing members of Al-Qaeda or Iraqi insurgents. These decorated and committed soldiers/Marines who honorably served their country—achieving a significant number of combat medals over multiple deployments—are now serving sentences ranging between 10 and 40 years. They and their families have fallen victim to the untenable Rules of Engagement, demoralizing “Catch and Release” policies, and climate of political correctness that govern our troops’ actions while trying to survive a combat zone.

While these soldiers/Marines have been judged very harshly by the military, our military leadership is currently releasing imprisoned enemy combatants back to the battlefield. We request the same mercy for these troops, many of whom have been denied clemency time and again. The Leavenworth 10 do not pose any threat and deserve to be returned to their families.

OMG read about these men at the site below!

These soldiers are the “Leavenworth 10”.

Civil Rights Attorney Bartle Bull Reacts To Former DOJ Attorney On Black Panther Case

Black Panthers racism: Obama defiles Martin Luther King death and voter rights legacy

Examiner Tampa Bay

"It's a staggering outrage... Martin Luther King died to help people to vote," said Civil Rights Attorney Bartle Bull to Megyn Kelly, anchor of American Live for Fox News . Speaking of how Obama's lack of action to protect voters from intimidation defiles the death and legacy of King, Bartle despairs that "The President of the United States, Mr. Obama, has violated his oath of office to enforce the laws of the United States because he's not enforcing the voting rights act - which he swore to do..."

Of attacks on the integrity of Christian Adams, a former DOJ attorney now exposing what he describes as secret racist DOJ mandate, "that no voter intimidation case, is going to be prosecuted, from this point forward, if the defendant is black and the victim is white." Bartle says such a mandate evidenced by handling of New Black Panthers case, denied by the Obama administration, would be against everything Martin Luther King fought and died to prevent.

"Voter intimidation... Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy did not die to have uniformed thugs blocking the doors of polling places with weapons. And for the first time in our lifetime, the national administration is protecting the abusers instead of the voters" stressed Bull candidly putting forth , "I didn't like Obama from the beginning. I thought he was a hustler; and I think he still is."

When people risked their lives to vote in Mississippi, Bartle was there. "I have the same agenda I had in 1960 in Mississippi, the same agenda I had in 1968 when I was Robert Kennedy's New York campaign manager, the same agenda I had when was Jimmy Carter's New York campaign manager, and that is to have decent and intelligent government and fair voting all over the country, " explained Bartle while holding a treasured gold medal given to him by Senator Edward Kennedy in 2003.

Bartle added "It leaves us in a terrible situation where the government is deciding what laws to enforce based on its political opposition in the next election. And I think this next election will be very dangerous because all of those illegal ACORN voters are still on the rolls all over the country, and now we are going to be intimidated from challenging their false votes."

He says finally, "...publicity is very important because the light of day does not encourage this kind of behavior. But, the real problem is that we now have hundreds of thousands of illegal voters who are registered or are being registered right now and they're intimidating the challenges to those votes in the future".

As the White House continues to deny this even merits their attention, public opinion must shine the "light of day" on the New Black Panthers case to assure voter intimidation doesn't prevail in Elections 2010.

Obama must answer with justice to a mandate, now tainted with racism, denying white voters the same voting protections provided for black voters. America must not allow this flagrant New Black Panther violation to King's legacy to defile the dream that drove King's life, the dream he died for - every citizen's right to vote free of intimidation.

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

Be sure to see and hear what he says at 5:05 where he says he did not vote for Obama he felt he was a hustler and stll does. He voted for McCain/Palin and he is a lifelong democrat.

GLENN: We have an amazing Marine Corps sergeant with us, Eddie Wright. He's retired and he is here with Cody, his fiancé, and we want to tell you his story here in a second but first I want to put the camera on him and — what a greedy — how many medals do you need?

PAT: I mean, that's more than you need right there.

GLENN: Can you turn his microphone on, please?

PAT: Eddie, that's more — what about redistribution of medals? There are people cowering somewhere in a corner that don't have any, they don't have any medals.

GLENN: How many medals do you need?

PAT: Wow.

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, I don't need any.

GLENN: How many do you have? Tell me what they are. There's the bronze star, I recognize that, the Purple Heart. Then I'm lost on my medals.

SGT. WRIGHT: And some of these are — well, the one next to the Purple Heart is the good conduct. I barely squeaked by with that one.

GLENN: Yeah. Good conduct, that just means you didn't screw up anything, right?

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, I didn't get caught, yes, sir.

GLENN: Right, okay. I mean, everybody gets that. That's like the — that's like the — that's like the participation award, isn't it?

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, yes, sir. I mean, you know, you earn them all, but —

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Now, what is a bronze star with V device? Because I understand you have a bronze star with V device? Is that right? Or —

SGT. WRIGHT: Yes, sir, yes, sir.

PAT: What does that mean?

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, I got that April 7, 2004, for doing my job. That was the day that we were ambushed and that's the day that I lost my hands and, you know, we were all just doing what we do and trying to stay alive. And the Marine Corps showed their appreciation and gave that to me.

GLENN: How did you lose your hands?

SGT. WRIGHT: We were working in Fallujah. I was serving as the assistant team leader with the first recon battalion and we came under heavy enemy fire. We were ambushed by small arms, heavy machine guns, mortars and rockets, and in the course of the ambush, I was struck by a rocket propelled grenade which instantly blew off my hands.

GLENN: Jeez. Do you ever regret it? Do you ever regret signing up?

SGT. WRIGHT: No, I don't regret it at all. In fact —

GLENN: May I? May I predict? You're kind of pissed because you want to go back and be with your buddies.

SGT. WRIGHT: Yes, sir, that's a common theme. I really — you know, one of the things that motivated me in my recovery was the fact that I wanted to return back and serve again, and I did get that chance and I did, did get that chance to serve again, and my last year in the Marine Corps before I retired, I was able to instruct at the martial arts center of excellence at the basic school in Quantico, Virginia which is, you know, quite an experience for me.

GLENN: There was never a time, never a time that you thought, "I don't have hands. What am I going to do?" I mean, was there a time where you were quite honestly pissed off or, why me?

SGT. WRIGHT: No, I don't think so. I don't think I let myself get complacent or — you know, we don't really have an attitude, we don't foster the attitude of "I can't" or "I quit." And when you have an obstacle in front of you, you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and focus on what you can.

GLENN: America, let me tell you something. This is exactly, exactly why we're doing 8/28. Here's a guy with incredible honor. Here's a guy who has sacrificed more than I will ever sacrifice. Here is a guy who has an American attitude of, "What? We just do it." This is why our country is struggling right now. Because there's not enough of us that are just like, "Do the damn job," and it's an honor to do the job. I am deeply humbled by not only you but all of the brothers that you serve with. It is remarkable what you guys accomplish, and we can never thank you enough, although I do believe you have far too many medals. It's a showoff kind of thing. It's really — all right. Now, you're here for a reason. You are in New York for a reason and I want to get to some happy news here. There's two pieces of happiness. First, with you is Meredith. Meredith, how do you say your last name? I'm sorry.

ILER: It's actually Iler.

GLENN: Iler, okay. So Meredith, you are with

ILER: Yes.

GLENN: And tell me about Helping a Hero.

ILER: is actually a national 501(c)(3) and we build homes for specially adapted specially adapted homes for our wounded heroes who have been injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.

GLENN: So in other words, like the cabinets, you don't have to — you can just hit them and they open, they pop up?

VOICE: Correct. Eddie was actually our very first double arm amputee and so to date we've done paraplegic, quadriplegic, a triple amputee who's missing both legs and an arm, a blind hero, another hero who's blind in one eye and is an amputee. So we have all kinds of challenges that we've been tackling over the last few years, and this was a wonderful challenge to look at ways we could improve Eddie's life, and you are right. The pop out cabinets were a great thing, but the two things that I think are even bigger highlights is Toto donated an automatic toilet that, once again, someone with no hands, it does everything for you. And then we also —

GLENN: This is — hold on just a second. Hold on just a second because I think there's —

PAT: I don't know that we need to delve into that.

GLENN: Okay, all right.

ILER: I was trying to be diplomatic, Glenn.

GLENN: How's that working out for you, Eddie? Is that working out well?

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, I'll let you know when I try it out.

GLENN: Okay, all right. And how are you — how do you raise funds or what do you do?

ILER: Well, you know, it's great. People who are listening to your show can go to and make a donation this morning. My cellphone has already been going off a ton with people making online donations. And it's real exciting because we've had lots of families, lots of individual donors who are stepped up over the last few years. We haven't really delved into the large corporate support like a lot of other 501(c)(3)s. And the other thing that's unique about Helping a Hero is we don't have any paid staff.

GLENN: That's good.

ILER: I even pay my assistant personally and then, you know, she spends about 60% of her time on Helping a Hero, as do I.

GLENN: That's great.

PAT: And so what you guys do is donate homes to badly injured veterans. And has it — is it 20 so far that you've —

ILER: We've completed 20 and we've awarded 26.

PAT: Wow.

ILER: And then we actually will give away another 15 on November 12th and we'll accept applications through August 31st for other severely wounded heroes that might be listening to this show or people who know those who need adaptive housing.

PAT: And so Eddie was one of the recipients yesterday at a ceremony in Conroe, Texas, which is probably one of the northernmost suburbs of Houston, and at this ceremony something pretty special happened. What was that?

SGT. WRIGHT: Yes, sir.

GLENN: This is so cool.

SGT. WRIGHT: As soon as I got done saying thank you to all the sponsors and the Montgomery County community and the families that helped out, I had the opportunity to do something to make the day even more special and more meaningful, and I proposed to my girlfriend Cody Fife.

PAT: And did she politely decline?

GLENN: She was like, I don't know, man.

SGT. WRIGHT: She did not.

GLENN: It's the medals. I mean, you wear them to bed. You sound like you are walking around with keys all the time. Did you hear him move a second ago?

PAT: Sounds like he's got spurs.

GLENN: You can hear the medals clink and you're like, okay.

PAT: Got spurs on his chest.

GLENN: So Cody —

PAT: Sorry to wreck the story, go ahead. What did you say to him?

GLENN: We don't mean to cheapen the story at all but that's what they pay us very well to do. So Cody, did you know it was coming?

FIFE: I did not. And by the way, the medals, they don't bother me too much. I did not — I was very surprised, very surprised.

PAT: So no inkling at all that it was coming?

FIFE: No. I mean, you know, when you're a girl and in love, you always hope. I was hoping it would happen soon but I didn't know.

GLENN: Did he ask your father?

FIFE: He did.

GLENN: Good.

FIFE: He did.

GLENN: You can marry that man then.

FIFE: Yeah, he asked my father.

GLENN: Dad said — what did dad say?

FIFE: What did Dad say?

SGT. WRIGHT: He said — he said — well —

PAT: You better treat her right or I'll be coming for you?

SGT. WRIGHT: Well, no, he didn't go that far.

GLENN: Here's what my —

SGT. WRIGHT: He approved and in a roundabout way he said hell yes.

GLENN: That's great.

SGT. WRIGHT: Pardon my French.

GLENN: It's not French technically. They keep saying that. I know, it's not. May be Spanish but it's not French. My father in law was like, oh, jeez, oh, dear God. That's what my father in law said.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: But anyway, thank you so much.

SGT. WRIGHT: You're welcome.

GLENN: Sincerely thank you for your service. Thank you for everything you've done. We've asked you a few minutes ago if you will join at 8/28 and stand with Marcus Luttrell and Greg Stube, a good friend of mine and Sarah Palin and I at the opening of 8/28, and we'd love to have you there.

SGT. WRIGHT: It would be an honor, sir. Thank you very much.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you for your service. Congratulations, Cody. And Meredith, you are just, you are doing great, great work. Great work. And thank you for your service to our —


GLENN: Yeah. Thank you for everything that you do.

Thank you Sgt. James ‘Eddie’ Wright !!!

Wow! Our country is so blessed and we WILL get our country back. We have to and we have to because men and women like James Eddie Wright, all our troops and our Veterans don't deserve an America that obama wants. They deserve an America that our Founding Fathers, our Constitution and freedom loving Americans all want.

Bill O’Reilly interviews Zaki Baruti Who Called Kenneth Gladney an “Uncle Tom

Bill O'Reilly Interviews President Of The Universal African Peoples Organization Zaki Baruti - 07/13/10

Bill O’Reilly interviews Zaki Baruti, the man who called Kenneth Gladney an “Uncle Tom.” Gladney, a black Tea Partier, was beaten by SEIU thugs after attending a Tea Party event.

Baruti said he has “no regrets” for calling Gladney an “Uncle Tom,” and added that he believes, “Most people would agree with that terminology of Uncle Tom being applied to him.”



On May 5th, 2010, the Missouri NAACP hosted a press conference and rally on behalf of Perry Molens and Elston McCowan, demanding the county prosecutor drop assault charges stemming from an attack outside Russ Carnahan’s townhall in South St. Louis County on Health Care last August. Molens and McCowan were arrested after the staged Carnahan event in August after they beat, kicked and stomped on black vendor Kenneth Gladney. The two Russ Carnahan supporters and SEIU members also called Kenneth the n-word as they bashed him into the cement.

Kenneth Gladney - Beat up by SEIU members at a Tea Party Rally. He was also there selling "Don’t Tread on Me!" flags.
Kenneth Gladney was beaten, kicked and called racist names by Russ Carnahan’s SEIU supporters after a health care town hall meeting in August.

The national media and NAACP ignored the hate crime.

Gladney was beaten by several SEIU thugs after the meeting let out. He was working outside the town hall event selling flags and buttons when he was attacked.

Kenneth Gladney attended the protest against SEIU violence following his beatdown in St. Louis.

St. Louis County officials waited until November 25 to press charges. SEIU members Elston McCowan, 47, of St. Louis, and Perry Molens, 50, of De Soto, each were charged with assaulting a person and interfering with police. They are accused of scuffling with and injuring Kenneth Gladney, a vendor at the Carnahan health care town hall. The country pressed charges on 6 individuals.

Yesterday, the NAACP passed a resolution condemning the “racism” of the tea party movement. They did not pass a resolution condemning the SEIU thugs who beat up Kenneth Gladney, an African-American vendor at a tea party rally. We guess racism is in the eye of Eric Holder.


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

NAACP will not support Gladney because he has the wrong politics. It makes one wonder if the NAACP even realizes how it is being used to play a role against itself.

Under Obama, the country has become more racially divided than ever. Expect things to only worsen from here on out, because the rabble-rousers like the NAACP, the Panthers, Farrakhan, SEIU et al are going to cause more and more disturbances, and at some point all-out riots. Gird up your loins America, we're in for a bumpy ride for the remainder of this Obama tyrant's lousy regime.

Obama ran his campaign on his being a racist. He is the one that kept bringing it up. I hold Obama accountable for every racist thing done from the start of his campaign, now and in the future. Remember when Bill Clinton used the word fairytale and Obama went off on him saying it was a racist remark. I still don't understand how anyone can get racism out of saying that about a reference to " fairytale". Hell for what we know about Obama he should have been upset Bill Clinton was calling him GAY. LOL That is actually what I first thought when I heard it.

Megyn Kelly's Show ....The Connection Is Made - White House And New Black Panthers


Megyn Kelly interview of Former DOJ official (Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation) shares new evidence in decision to drop voter intimidation case.


" I love fighting me some crackers." more video of the leaders of the New Black Panther Party.


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

I hope they keep this in the forefront what happened. Sometimes it takes some people awhile to see the truth and this kind of threats that happened when people simply wanted to vote will happen again if there is not enough backlash about it imo.

Like so many things, silence gives an OK to continue or to do even worse things.

Gibbs Refuses Comment on Glenn Beck Rally, New Black Panther Scandal, and Palin "Mama Grizzly" Ad

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs refusing to comment on the upcoming August 28 Glenn Beck Rally at the Lincoln Memorial, even though the reporter had asked Gibbs to seek comment from Obama on both the rally and the scandal surrounding remarks by New Black Panther Leaders. Gibbs said he had not talked to the President about it. He also refused to comment on Sarah Palin’s “Mama Grizzly” ad, saying only that the country would have “a choice” in 2012.

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

I pray nothing happens to Beck or any of the fine citizens who go to this rally.

Holder Raises Question On Sept. 11 Death Penalty

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on 5/13/2010, US Attorney General refuses to use the term "radical Islam."


Holder Uncertain if Radical Islam Influenced Terrorists


Attorney General Eric Holder hesitated to answer whether radical Islam was even a motivating factor for the individuals responsible for the Fort Hood shooting, the attempted Christmas Day bombing and the attempted Times Square attack.

“There are a variety of reasons why I think people have taken these actions,” Holder said. “One, I think just look at each individual case. We are in the process how of talking to Mr. (Faisal) Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him to take the action.”

The question as to whether the individuals were incited by radical Islam came from the committee’s ranking member Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).

Smith followed, “But radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?”

Holder again said, “There are a variety of reasons.”

Smith later asked, “But all I’m asking is do you think among those variety of reasons, radical Islam might have been one of the reasons that the individuals took the steps that they did?”

After a two-minute back and forth, Holder eventually said, “I certainly think that it’s possible that people who espouse a radical version of Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad.”


Holder Raises Question On Sept. 11 Death Penalty


Attorney General Eric Holder says there's a real question about whether a terrorist suspect such as alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can face the death penalty if he were to plead guilty before a military commission.

Holder proposed last year trying Mohammed and four alleged accomplices in civilian courts in New York City. But that idea generated so much controversy that it's all but been abandoned.

He told CBS' "Face the Nation" that it's possible to impose the death penalty in a civilian setting for someone who pleads guilty. But he says there's far less legal certainty about that possibility in a military setting.

Since January, Holder has said that all options are on the table about where to try Mohammed and the four other terrorist suspects. That includes the possibility of having them go before a military commission in Guantanamo Bay, where they are now held.

The attorney general said the Obama administration is working through issues about a site for the proceedings, taking into account the need for Congress to approve funding and trying to address concerns expressed by local officials.
"As soon as we can" resolve those issues, "we will make a decision as to where that trial will occur," Holder said.
He said "the politicization of this issue, when we're dealing with ultimate national security issues, is something that disturbs me a great deal."
The attorney general said it is his hope that Congress provides money to move Guantanamo detainees to a new location in Thomson, Ill., where an underused state prison now exists.
"There is no reason to believe that people held in Guantanamo cannot be held wherever we put them in the United States. Again, very safely and very effectively," Holder said.

The need for congressional approval of the money for the project stands in the way of doing so, with Republicans and some Democrats objecting to bringing those prisoners into the United States.


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

I have a feeling Baraq Sheik Obama has no intention of prosecuting KSM, and Holder is in full agreement.

Obama and minions chipping away at Muslim accountability on anything.

KSM is more likely to die of laughter, induced by this administration's stupidity.

And he cannot bring himself to say anything negative about his terrorists he favors over Americans.

Michelle Obama Speaks At NAACP Pushing Her Racist Beliefs

Michelle Obama Rouses NAACP Before Vote Condemning 'Racist' Elements of Tea Party

ABC News

First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation's largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement.

The nation's largest and oldest civil rights organization will vote on the resolution Tuesday during its annual convention in Kansas City, Mo. In addition to jobs and the economy, anti-Tea Party activism has been a large focus of the gathering, which conservative leaders say is driven solely by a political agenda.

The resolution is part of the movement to realign people against the Tea Party, which has emerged as a strong grassroots, albeit fragmented, force across the country.

"We have to close the enthusiasm gap," NAACP president Ben Jealous said in an interview with the Associated Press Friday. "The danger of the Tea Party is that people see them and think about periods in history when groups like them were much more powerful than they are now, and so a lot of what we spend energy doing is explaining to people what reality is, and that the reality is that the majority from 2008 still exists."

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, in coordination with 170 other groups, including labor unions, is planning a protest march in Washington, D.C., Oct. 10 as the next step in building momentum against the Tea Party.

She also talked about childhood obesity in African-American communities. In the afternoon, there was no way we’d be allowed to lie around the house watching TV,” she continued. “Our parents made us get up and play outside.”

Later, she added, “As I tell my kids, dessert is not a right.”

Two days before Obama arrived to speak at the Kansas City Convention Center, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People launched the event with a health symposium, sending the message to attendees that, unlike dessert, health is a “true civil right.”

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

This coming from a woman who attended a racist, anti-Semitic church for years with her husband.

NAACP president Ben Jealous”......LOL .....You can’t make this stuff up.

“health” is a true civil right....... BAAAWAAAAHHHHH "health is a “true civil right.”"
Were, exactly, is that found in the Constitution?

Democrats are power-mad control freaks...they need to learn to leave other people alone. I love working out, but I would never ever tell someone else they had to work out. Or how to eat or what not to eat unless the person asked me. I would feel so uncomfortable to do such a thing, it is not my place to dictate to someone else about this kind of thing off the cuff and butt in their lifestyle when not asked. Good grief.

Heh heh, how about this for YOU Michelle.......Life is dessert first!!

I’ve never met a racists TEA party member. But the NAACP is, by name, a racist hate organization.

EVERY ghetto in USA is presented by Democrats, her own party; party lead by her husband, Barack Hussein Obama.

She talks about racism, yet refused to condemn racism of blacks against whites.

Michelle Obama also accuse TEA Partiers of using "racial epithets" against black members of Congress. This woman called "First Lady" of USA is a LIAR like her husband. Up to now NO ONE came forward to produce a video at TEA PARTY rally in Washington DC for proof! There were so many videos and recorders out there during TEA party rally, how come none of these black congressmen can produce any video to prove their accusation? Because there was NONE of TEA Partiers made any racial remarks!

Real racist is the DEMOCRATIC PARTY, they're the one who keep black people down thru entitlements; give them welfare, make them dependent on the government.

On Second Thought...Boston City Councilors Backtrack on Arizona Boycott

On Second Thought...Boston City Councilors Backtrack on Arizona Boycott

Boston Herald

Red-faced Boston city councilors who boldly voted to shun the state of Arizona over its new immigration crackdown are now showing signs of boycotter’s regret.

The grandstanding pols kept a low profile when the target of their boycott came to their city on Saturday. Some acknowledged taking a pass on the much-hyped protest of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for weekend vacations and other engagements - while one councilor even admitted the embargo was ill-conceived.

The non-binding measure, sponsored by Council President Michael Ross and Councilor Felix G. Arroyo, calls on city officials “not to participate in any business activities substantially connected with the State of Arizona and municipalities in Arizona. :

“If it had to be done all over again, there’d probably be more thought put into it and perhaps a hearing,” said Councilor John Tobin of West Roxbury. “It was an emotional issue and an emotional time. I think the sponsors were getting a lot of pressure to say something, to file something.”

Tobin’s own resolve broke down quickly. He had a chance to go to an Arizona Diamondbacks game at Fenway Park [map] last month.

“I asked the bill’s co-sponsors for permission,” he said. They said OK. Tobin went to the ballgame.

Arroyo has not returned repeated calls since last week. Ross downplayed the strictness of the measure yesterday.

“I wouldn’t refer to it as a boycott. It was a number of things. It was a statement,” said Ross, who was away for the weekend as the protest took place.

The measure passed with great fanfare. Mayor Thomas M. Menino vowed to scrutinize contracts with Arizona firms. But Menino administration officials have failed to respond when asked if any firms have been singled out for action.

Councilors have privately expressed regret, saying they’ve been verbally accosted by angry constituents and taken aback by the level of national attention the boycott brought

Texas Democrat Rep. Ciro Rodriguez Totally Losing His Cool With Constituents ~ Ciro Can't Handle The Truth!

The mid-term elections are inching closer and Democrats are having to finally admit that they are in real political trouble. For those keeping score at home, let’s recap; the economy sucks, there are no new jobs, the stimulus failed, the government is bleeding money, ObamaCare is unpopular, the Feds have screwed up the gulf oil spill and we are facing potentially the biggest tax hike in history at the end of the year.

Texas Democrat Rep. Ciro Rodriguez losing his cool with a constituent, this time actually using profanity with the person who apparently didn’t look sufficiently like they were accepting what he was saying. Rodriguez stopped in mid-sentence and moved over toward the person and said “This is not Bull**it, OK. This is what I’ve been doing.” referring to what he had been saying about using robocalls in place of expensive advertising.

Earlier yesterday ( the same day as the above meeting ) , a video surfaced of ....Rodriguez losing his cool at another meeting with a woman who told him to, “tell the truth.”

Texas Democrat Ciro Rodriguez losing his cool at a town hall style meeting with a constituent. Rodriguez was using Democrat talking points to defend his vote for ObamaCare, but those attending were not having any of it. They corrected Rodriguez on the numbers he was using, and pointed out that the CBO has continued to revise numbers. When one woman attending told him he should “tell the truth,” Rodriguez lost it and lectured the woman not to tell him he is not telling the truth. He slammed his papers against a table to make his point.

The Democrats are getting very nervous. Expect to see more of this as we move into the Fall Campaign season.

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

Wow! Holy Guacamole! Calmly, telling a politician to tell the truth is now NOT considered civil dialogue. OK, Ciro, if you aren’t a liar, then your constituents elected a total ignoramus. But imho you’re a liar.

This should be made into a campaign commercial. Did you notice how the guy eating in the background reacted to that? Ciro Rodriguez is a LaRaza Marxist who was heavily financed by move

His Republican opponent Francisco Canseco is a very solid conservative. “Ciro Rodriguez has a history of cursing and yelling at people who disagree with him. It shows how much contempt he has for the people of this district and their concerns about the economy, exploding federal deficits, and reckless government growth.” Canseco said.

Rodriguez virtually never met with any consituents until after the primary when he found out his opponent has a hispanic surname. Now all of a sudden he’s holding office hours and town meetings all over the district.

At the National Governors Association meeting, from left, Phil Bredesen, Deval Patrick, Joe Manchin III and Bob McDonnell.

New York Times

In a private meeting with White House officials this weekend, Democratic governors voiced deep anxiety about the Obama administration’s suit against Arizona’s new immigration law, worrying that it could cost a vulnerable Democratic Party in the fall elections.

While the weak economy dominated the official agenda at the summer meeting here of the National Governors Association, concern over immigration policy pervaded the closed-door session between Democratic governors and White House officials and simmered throughout the three-day event.

At the Democrats’ meeting on Saturday, some governors bemoaned the timing of the Justice Department lawsuit, according to two governors who spoke anonymously because the discussion was private.

“Universally the governors are saying, ‘We’ve got to talk about jobs,’ ” Gov. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee, a Democrat, said in an interview. “And all of a sudden we have immigration going on.”

He added, “It is such a toxic subject, such an important time for Democrats.”

The administration seemed to be taking a carrot-and-stick approach on Sunday. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, in town to give the governors a classified national security briefing, met one-on-one with Jan Brewer, the Republican who succeeded her as governor of Arizona and ardently supports the immigration law.

About the same time as that meeting, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said on a taped Sunday talk show that the Justice Department could bring yet another lawsuit against Arizona if there is evidence that the immigration law leads to racial profiling.

Ms. Brewer said she and Ms. Napolitano did not discuss the current lawsuit. Instead, in a conversation she described as cordial, they discussed Arizona’s request for more National Guard troops along the border with Mexico, as well as other resources.

The Democrats’ meeting provided a window on tensions between the White House and states over the suit, which the Justice Department filed last week in federal court in Phoenix. Nineteen Democratic governors are either leaving office or seeking re-election this year, and Republicans see those seats as crucial to swaying the 2012 presidential race.

Republican governors at the Boston meeting were also critical of the lawsuit, saying it infringed on states’ rights and rallying around Ms. Brewer, whose presence spurred a raucous protest around the downtown hotel where the governors gathered.

“I’d be willing to bet a lot of money that almost every state in America next January is going to see a bill similar to Arizona’s,” said Gov. Dave Heineman of Nebraska, a Republican seeking re-election.

But the unease of Democratic governors, seven of whom are seeking re-election this year, was more striking.

“I might have chosen both a different tack and a different time,” said Gov. Bill Ritter Jr. of Colorado, a Democrat who was facing a tough fight for re-election and pulled out of the race earlier this year. “This is an issue that divides us politically, and I’m hopeful that their strategy doesn’t do that in a way that makes it more difficult for candidates to get elected, particularly in the West.”

The White House would not directly respond to reports of complaints from some Democratic governors.

But David Axelrod, the president’s senior adviser, said on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the president remained committed to passing an immigration overhaul, and that addressing the issue did not mean he was ignoring the economy.

And the heads of Mr. Obama’s national debt commission — Alan K. Simpson and Erskine B. Bowles — were on hand here on Sunday to press the economic issue.

The nation’s total federal debt next year is expected to exceed $14 trillion, and Mr. Simpson, a former Republican senator from Wyoming, and Mr. Bowles, a Democrat and the White House chief of staff under President Bill Clinton, offered a gloomy assessment if spending is not brought under control even more.

“This debt is like a cancer,” Mr. Bowles said. “It is truly going to destroy the country from within.”

Immigration was not the only topic at the Saturday meeting between Democratic governors and two White House officials — Patrick Gaspard, Mr. Obama’s political director, and Cecilia Munoz, director of intergovernmental affairs.

But several governors, including Christine Gregoire of Washington, said it was a particularly heated issue.

Ms. Gregoire, who does not face an election this year, said the White House was doing a poor job of showing the American public that it was working on the problem of illegal immigration.

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

These Democratic Governors got what they wanted, they knew what Obama and his people were and are. Which is totally against all things goodo for America.

Note too these dems are not concerned with how wrong it is for Obama or any president to sue a State for wanting to obey a law of our land, NO, instead they worry only about their own glutes in an election year.

“It is such a toxic subject, such an important time for Democrats.”

“...makes it more difficult for candidates to get elected, particularly in the West.”

There are many reasons to depsise these evil self-aggrandizing Demonrat scum, but their central focus and interests are always on themselves rather than the country. Collectively as a group, their “beliefs” have been, and always will be, perverse.

That is the heart of it. Their greatest concern isn’t for our country, or for their state, or for the Rule of Law, but that Arizona’s example might endanger their their re-election chances, and that they might be forced to pass similar legislation, which would be a poison pill for them with their liberal supporters. Talk about being painted into a corner.

And not forget how this news was released - by an Obama appointee, Hillary Clinton, to a dignitary in a foreign country!

This Administration has its own agenda, and it has nothing to do with the wishes of the majority of Americans.

John Bolton :" I Would Reverse All Of Obama's Policies"


John Bolton on American Sovereignty Under a Post-American Presidency

The Heritage Foundation


Protect America Month 2010, the Heritage Foundation’s annual series of events and publications aimed at highlighting key national security issues and promoting sensible defense and homeland security policies, hit the road today with a special address in Chicago by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton.

Ambassador Bolton began his remarks by explaining why he refers to President Obama as a “post-American” president.

The first problem, he argued, is that President Obama doesn’t care about national security. It is not where his attention is focused. The second problem is that he doesn’t see threats to the U.S. overseas. He argued during his presidential campaign, for example, that Iran was a “tiny” country. The third problem is that President Obama appears to believe that American decline is not only inevitable, but also a good thing.

He looks at the world through a multilateralist prism and doesn’t really believe in American exceptionalism–something first spoken about by a Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville. President Obama, by contrast, when asked whether he believes in America exceptionalism answers yes, only in the way that “Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”

Put those features together with a foreign policy based on radical moral equivalences–such as the Administration’s outrageous equation of Arizona’s new immigration law and China’s routinely discriminatory and brutal treatment of foreigners and minorities–and you get what Ambassador Bolton calls the “Post-American” president.

Bolton argues that the Obama Administration’s approach has failed on Iran, on North Korea, in the Middle East, and on numerous other security issues because it is based on the view that all of the problems in the world are the consequence of our failure to negotiate.

He cautions that the Administration’s emphasis on negotiation could have serious costs. Negotiation–especially when waged ineptly and without moral clarity–often favors the proliferator. Ambassador worries that the Administration may have decided to accept a nuclear Iran, despite the fact that it would pose serious threats to the U.S.

Unless American’s demand a changed approach, and unless we keep national security at the top of the agenda–as Heritage’s Protect America month is doing–America could decline in ways that will be very difficult–if not impossible–to reverse.


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

John Bolton is so good. It just feels good too to be able to hear what he has to say. Unlike the daily sickening thing of that monster in the WH that is covered each day in the news.

Bolton says that the Obama Administration’s approach has failed on Iran, on North Korea, in the Middle East, and on numerous other security issues .

US Forces Fighting The Taliban

By Paul McNamara, Defence Correspondent

THE red cross-hairs of the sniper’s scope rest upon the Taliban gunman’s head.

Over the intercepted radio transmissions the interpreter translates every word the sniper sees across a river 450m away.

“The Ghost Patrol haven’t seen me,” he tells his insurgent comrades.

“I’ve got my gun, I’m coming to join you now.”

At the last minute Sgt Jonathan Holmes lowers his sight to the Taliban’s leg.

“HAVE I GOT CLEARANCE TO SHOOT?” he screams to his commanding officer, Lt Eric Fitzgerald.

“AM I CLEAR?” he repeats.

With a quick nod, the humid plum orchard we are crouched in behind a three foot wall, sweltering in 50 degree heat, turns silent.

Suddenly, three shots ring out and the Afghan gunman is on the ground.

Minutes later he’s picked up by a different team of NATO troops to be interrogated and given medical assistance.

A year ago he would be dead by now, but US forces are being forced to change their tactics to win over a hostile local population.

The News of the World is on patrol with the troops of America’s elite 82nd Airborne deep inside Afghanistan’s deadliest region – the Arghandab district of Kandahar.

Their, and our, lives are in the hands of one Brit, Major General Nick Carter.

He's the commander of all troops in Southern Afghanistan, and the military mastermind behind "the biggest offensive of the Afghan war so far".

And this week our reporting staff joined the troops on the ground to see how preparation for the imminent mission to secure Kandahar - the birthplace of the Taliban - is going.

But on the ground it is hard to believe security is close at hand in this region.

While dozens of Taliban fighters are being killed every day, reinforcements are constantly trickling in to replace them.

So, can the war be won before President Obama and Prime Minister Cameron lose patience and start to pull their troops out?

If victory is possible, it will be won by men like those from Delta Company, the 2nd Battalion 508th Parachute Infantry regiment.

Taliban commanders have dubbed them 'The Ghost Patrol' because they've killed so many insurgents without ever being seen.

Sgt Holmes has personally killed 20 Taliban - the furthest from 950m, and he once killed four in the space of ten minutes.

Today, Holmes explains why his tally is not even higher: "He wasn't shooting at me, he was just carrying his gun.

"But given half the chance he'd have turned it on all of us pretty damn quick," he adds explaining why he maimed the gunman.

This is the doctrine introduced by the now-disgraced ISAF commander General Stanley McChrystal - 'courageous restraint'.

In essence, no force until there is proof beyond any doubt the target is an insurgent.

And no lethal force unless it is unavoidable.

Holmes is quietly furious.

"All I know is this whole war would be a lot easier if they wore uniforms.

"But they don't so I'll soldier according to the rules before me, and they'll carry on with no rules whatsoever."

More of his comrades have been killed here in the Arghandab than anywhere else in Afghanistan, sometimes in firefights, but most often by IEDs.

Patrolling in this heat wearing 70lbs of equipment, making sure you cast your eye over every square inch of land for tell-tale signs of a homemade bomb is exhausting.

On average every man loses up to 4lbs in sweat on each patrol.

We walk through a mix of dusty dirt track roads through Afghan villages talking to local elders, yomping slowly through the fertile fruit orchards of plums and pomegranates, and jumping over six foot walls.

You never return by the same route you came - it's far too tempting for would-be bomb makers.

The background noise is a constant hum of gun fire and homemade bombs going off.

In the two days before we arrived in the Arghandab two more soldiers were killed here.

That evening Lieutenant Colonel Guy Jones explains why this area is so important to Kandahar.

But he is constantly stopped mid sentence by status reports of yet another one of his men blown up by an IED.

"This is a very important thoroughfare into Kandahar for trade, so the Taliban are fighting fiercely to maintain their grip," he said.

Again another update - his soldier is out of theatre, but the surgeons are not hopeful.

How many times had he heard that since arriving here a year ago?

"Too many times."

The soldier died the next morning, leaving behind a widow and four fatherless children.

Over the coming months the death count here is set to rise.

Maj Gen Nick Carter, is realistic about the difficulties he faces over the coming months, but optimistic some security can be brought to Afghanistan's most lawless and Taliban loyal province.

But a couple of days on the ground in the Arghandab however highlights just how monumental the challenge he faces is.

Exact percentages of secure villages are not available, but walking around with Delta Company it's evident for every one secure there are multiples under the control of the insurgents.

"Today was easy," explains sharp-shooter Holmes.

"But there are plenty of places around here it's a lot more difficult.

"Just a couple of miles north are a whole load of villages completely under Taliban control and we don't really have any presence there.

"Four village elders in the villages we do have a strong presence have been executed in the past couple of weeks.

"And last week a child suicide bomber killed 40 dignitaries at the wedding of an ANP officer a few villages over."

How long does Holmes think peace around here will take?

"That's way beyond the thinking of a sniper," he says.

"But the only thing I do know is that nothing happens quickly in this country."

The very next morning a huge bang wakes everyone just before dawn.

A Taliban member has blown himself up trying to set a mine. It's just 400m from our base.

Over the past six months the troops have constantly found IEDs, and even captured a homemade mortar.

"It was surprisingly accurate," said Sgt Holmes, 25.

"Like everything about the Taliban, it's very simply made, but tough as anything and capable of real damage."

It looks like a ten-year-old's home-made telescope; a black metal tube welded to a tri-pod, the front end attached to a car jack to elevate for perfect aiming.

Just two weeks ago the hugely successful and pro-West district governor Haji Abdul Jabbar was assassinated with an IED.

And Kandahar has problems that are much bigger than just harbouring the Taliban.

Before he can even attempt to eradicate insurgents, he has to address warlord-owned militias terrorising the local population with protection rackets.

Their cast iron grip on the country's south is so tight that even NATO forces have to pay to guarantee safe passage of military supplies from Pakistan.

And staggeringly, many of the hired thugs are former Afghan National Police officers that UK money has helped train.

Maj Gen Carter said: "The ANP and militias are big problems that need to be solved.

"A lot of our supplies come by land - such as food, fuel, basic military supplies.

"For safe passage we have to pay local 'private security firms' - militias, who owe their allegiances to local warlords and power brokers."

Many of the rent-a-thugs running the protection rackets have been trained by NATO forces.

He said: "The private security firms poach many of the good ANP and ANA soldiers we've trained over the last two to three years."

Militias pay Afghan employees $500 (£342) a month, well above the rate for Afghan soldiers or police of around $250 (£171) per month.

These militias are one of the first things Carter wants to address.

He said: "They thrive of the fact it's an insecure environment and if they can keep the environment unstable then that's good for business - they're creating their own demand."

He said: "We recruited police officers locally, assigned locally, if we were lucky they were eventually trained and they were deployed back into where they were initially assigned.

"The problem with this level of insurgency is that clan, neighbour, tribe is likely to get after them to make them work more in support of clan tribe, rather than the general population."

The system has just changed, but it will be some time before the ANP is able to ably police its own land.

Kandahar is a very different beast to rural Helmand - to put it in context, the village outskirts have the same problems as Helmand, while the city centre is more hostile than the darkest days in Northern Ireland.

But securing Afghanistan's second city is the key to bringing our troops home.

Maj Gen Carter added: "Speak to any Afghan and they'll tell you if you have a peaceful Kandahar, you will have a peaceful Afghanistan."

Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah May Follow Arizona's Lead on Immigration Law

Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah may follow Arizona's lead on immigration law

The Washington Post

By Michael W. Savage

Attention is focused on Arizona and the federal government's challenge to the state's strict new immigration law, but three other states could adopt similar legislation next year.

Lawmakers in Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah, which have already taken steps against illegal immigration, say that Arizona-style measures have a realistic chance of passing when their legislatures reconvene in 2011.

The Obama administration sued Arizona in federal court Tuesday, charging that the state law usurps federal authority, would hamper immigration enforcement and would lead to police harassment of those who have no proof of lawful status. The government asked that a federal judge stop the law from taking effect July 29.

Legislators in at least 17 other states introduced bills this year similar to the Arizona law, which allows officers to question anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. But most of those measures are not considered likely to be adopted or signed by governors.

The political climate in Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah, however, improves the chances that state legislatures there could follow Arizona's lead in 2011.

In 2007, Oklahoma led the way on such laws by adopting legislation that makes it a felony to knowingly transport or shelter an illegal immigrant. It also blocked illegal immigrants from obtaining driver's licenses and in-state tuition.

State Rep. Randy Terrill (R), who sponsored the measure, has expressed a desire to go beyond the Arizona law when he introduces a bill next year that would seize property from businesses that knowingly employ illegal immigrants.

Terrill cited the arrest last week of an alleged Mexican drug cartel member in Oklahoma as evidence that an "Arizona-plus" measure is needed urgently. He said the effect of Arizona's law has been to push illegal immigrants "straight down Interstate 40" toward Oklahoma.

Vivek Malhotra, advocacy and policy counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union, said the administration's decision to sue Arizona could discourage other states from doing the same. But he also said that similar legislation may be adopted in 2011.

"After the other border states, it is natural to look at the states that have enacted the most anti-immigrant laws" before Arizona, Malhotra said. He said he expected Oklahoma, South Carolina and Utah to make the "most vigorous effort" to enact similar legislation early next year.
Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said he thinks the Obama administration designed the lawsuit against Arizona as a "shot across the bows" of all states considering similar moves. He said he doubts, though, that Terrill will be deterred.
"Randy Terrill has made this his issue in Oklahoma and has earned bipartisan support in the past," he said. "He is a determined guy and he is not going to back down too easily."

In Utah, state Rep. Stephen Sandstrom (R) has been making regular fact-finding trips to Arizona as he finalizes a draft bill. But, following the announcement of the federal suit, he said he may consider watering down one of the Arizona law's most contentious elements.

Under the law, state officers are instructed to check immigration status if they have a "reasonable suspicion" that a person is in the country illegally. Sandstrom said his measure may require officers to meet the higher legal standard of "probable cause" to suspect someone of being undocumented before checking.

"I don't want people of Hispanic descent to feel my bill is aimed at them," he said.

A Utah law that took effect last year made it illegal to harbor or employ undocumented workers. Gov. Gary R. Herbert (R) has said he expects to sign new immigration legislation next year and is meeting with all sides to find a way forward.

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) touted a comprehensive set of measures against illegal immigration as the nation's strictest when he signed it into law in 2008. The far-reaching legislation forced businesses to check the immigration status of their workers. Harboring and transporting illegal immigrants also became a state crime. State lawmakers are seeking to build on it and were quick this year to draw up an Arizona-style bill, introducing it less than a week after the Arizona measure was signed.
State Sen. Larry Martin (R) said in an interview that an Arizona-type measure was introduced too late this year. "But I have every expectation a new bill will be introduced in January," he said. "As long as an officer has a lawful reason to question someone, and then a suspicion develops [that] they are an undocumented person, then I think our law enforcement folks ought to be able to pursue that," he said.

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

This is good news, I sure hope more States join in on this. This is disgusting that all 50 are not in it right away. They should be, if nothing else to show support for the States that have the problem.

We are a nation of laws and Obama is a person that only wants laws that make him a dictator and government BIG to take over people that are citizens lives.

'Dying' Lockerbie Terrorist Abdel Baset al-Megrahi May Live 10 Years


A doctor who said the man convicted of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 had only three months to live now says the Libyan could survive another 10 years, London's Sunday Times reported.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, who was convicted of 270 counts of murder for being behind the 1988 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, was released on compassionate grounds in 2009, after doctors said he only had a few months to live.


Hmmmmmmm check this out the connection to BP oil : ~ Wild Thing

Lockerbie bomber 'set free for oil'

London Sunday Times

The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

The correspondence makes it plain that the key decision to include Megrahi in a deal with Libya to allow prisoners to return home was, in fact, taken in London for British national interests.

Downing Street had also said Megrahi would not be included under the agreement.

Straw then switched his position as Libya used its deal with BP as a bargaining chip to insist the Lockerbie bomber was included.

The exploration deal for oil and gas, potentially worth up to £15 billion, was announced in May 2007. Six months later the agreement was still waiting to be ratified.

Because Dems HATE Business Big and Small They Plan Attack Over GOP Meeting With Business Leaders

The Hill

Congressional Democrats believe the House GOP plan to meet with business and trade lobbyists in the Capitol this week has provided them with yet another opening to attack Republicans for cozying up to big business.

The GOP plan calls for the top officials from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Business, the National Association of Homebuilders and the National Association of Manufacturers to gather with leading House Republicans in the Capitol to help the GOP craft part of its America Speaking Out policy agenda.

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), the Republican tasked with forming the jobs portion of the GOP agenda document, are among those scheduled to attend the meeting.

After reports of the business and trade group meeting surfaced, Democrats predictably went on the attack — in a release, the DNC chided Republicans for holding a “Lobbyists Speaking Out” forum.

Republicans appeared to buckle somewhat from the latest round of pressure. Shortly after news first broke of their initiative, GOP leaders announced plans to livestream the meeting, rather than hold it behind closed doors.

In recent months, Democrats have been relentless in their attacks on Republicans for coordinating their efforts -- political and policy -- with business leaders.

The attacks began in earnest after a February Wall Street Journal story placed Boehner at a private dinner with a top Wall Street executive to discuss a return to days when Wall Street donated primarily to Republicans.

According to the Journal, Boehner told James Dimon, the chairman and chief executive of J.P. Morgan, that Republicans had stood up to President Barack Obama’s attempts to rein in the financial industry, and expressed disappointment that Wall Street continued to donate money to Democratic campaigns.

After the article was published, Democratic aides immediately circulated a barrage of press releases about Boehner’s reported meeting. One Democratic leadership aide acknowledged at the time that the Journal story provided Democrats with the perfect ammunition to begin a counter-assault on Republicans.

That counter-assault has since become one of the key pillars of the majority's communication efforts going into the pivotal midterm elections in November.

It has only been in recent weeks that Republicans have begun to fight back with just as much force and vitriol.

Although top Republicans, including Boehner and Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.), were furious with Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) for apologizing to BP, Boehner hasn't taken much other criticism lying down.

Instead of apologizing or backtracking from his comparison of the financial regulatory reform bill to "killing an ant with a nuclear weapon," Boehner dug in.

On Thursday, Boehner again defended himself from another chiding from President Barack Obama, who responded to a lackluster jobs report in part by calling out Republicans for blocking his economic agenda.

"On President Obama’s watch, more than three million Americans have lost their jobs and unemployment is near 10 percent," Boehner said in a statement. "The American people continue to ask, where are the jobs? But the President keeps whining and indulging in childish partisan attacks. How out of touch can he get?"

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

PLEASE REPUBLICANS do NOT weaken , just tell the democrats to go to hell and do what you know needs to be done. The hell with Obama and his people...they HATE business big and small.

Republicans should fire back and call the Democrats Un-American for standing AGAINST business, jobs, and prosperity.

Destroyer of Business's Obama Gets His Wish ~ First Oil Drilling Rig To Leave The Gulf

The First Oil Drilling Rig Leaves The Gulf of Mexico and Will Go To Egyptian Waters

First rig sails away over drilling ban

Lawmakers and experts fear loss is only the start of offshore exodus

Diamond Offshore announced Friday that its Ocean Endeavor drilling rig will leave the Gulf of Mexico and move to Egyptian waters immediately — making it the first to abandon the United States in the wake of the BP oil spill and a ban on deep-water drilling.

And the Ocean Endeavor’s exodus probably won’t be the last, according to oil industry officials and Gulf Coast leaders who warn that other companies eager to find work for the now-idled rigs are considering moving them outside the U.S.

Devon Energy Corp. had been leasing the Endeavor to drill in the same region of the Gulf as BP’s leaking Macondo well, which has been gushing crude since a lethal blowout April 20.

But Diamond announced Friday it will lease the rig through June 30, 2011, to Cairo-based Burullus Gas Co., which plans to send the Endeavor to Egyptian waters immediately.

Devon is one of three companies that has cited the deep-water drilling ban in trying to ease out of contracts to lease Diamond rigs. Diamond, a drilling company, said it expects to make about $100 million from the deal, including a $31 million early termination fee it recovered from Devon.

Larry Dickerson, CEO of Houston-based Diamond, signaled that other of his company's rigs could be relocated, too.

"As a result of the uncertainties surrounding the offshore drilling moratorium, we are actively seeking international opportunities to keep our rigs fully employed," Dickerson said. "We greatly regret the loss of U.S. jobs that will result from this rig relocation."

It was unclear how many U.S. jobs could leave with the Ocean Endeavor, but typically more than 100 workers are on the rig at any given time, doing everything from drilling to cooking meals. Onshore, a network of businesses supplies the rigs with groceries, equipment, uniforms and drilling materials.

"It's not unusual for an energy service company to have 1,000 vendors that they buy from or purchase services from," noted Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands. As a result, Brady said, the economic damage from the moratorium stretches far and wide.

Fearing for investment

Brady and other oil-patch lawmakers have been pressing President Barack Obama to end the six-month moratorium he imposed on 33 deep-water projects May 27 after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig that was drilling a well for BP.

Obama said the ban was needed to allow time for new safety standards to be implemented and a commission to investigate the cause of the April 20 blowout at BP's Macondo well.

Although the administration on Thursday lost its second bid to keep the ban in place while it appeals a federal court's decision to strike down the moratorium, federal regulators plan to try again with a revised version soon.

Dan Pickering, a financial analyst with Tudor, Pickering Holt & Co. Securities, said the legal uncertainties surrounding the ban - and the administration's plan to issue a new, revised moratorium - ensure that no companies will resume deep-water drilling in U.S. waters anytime soon.

"Are you really going to spend $5 million … getting ready to drill a well that someone would then probably block you from drilling?" Pickering said.

Pickering added that prospects are high that a dozen rigs ultimately could leave the Gulf of Mexico because of the ban.

Brady said the rig owners are searching for revenue - even if it means relocating to get it.

"There are two types of rigs in the deep-water Gulf today: those that are leaving the country and those that want to, because with this moratorium hanging over their heads, they simply can't go back to work," Brady said. "I'm afraid this is the first of many rigs and many American jobs to leave the Gulf."

Once the rigs relocate, it could be a minimum of five to 10 years before they return, predicted Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land.

"We cannot afford to lose these jobs or the energy they provide," Olson said. "President Obama should allow this moratorium to remain lifted and let Americans get back to work."

During trading Friday, Diamond Offshore stock fell 86 cents - or 1.32 percent - to close at $64.40. It has fallen 29 percent from its closing price of $91.20 on April 20, the day the Deepwater Horizon exploded.

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

I don't blame these companies at all! I would do the exact same thing. This is NOT the America I grew up in, it has been taken over by a POS progressive marxist destroying all busineiss and he has not finished yet. He intends to destroy the oil business we have, crush the oil industry!

Car companies, banks, Wall Street and that horrible reform he did, drilling for oil you name it everything he touches he destroys. He is a terrorist in our White House!

Oil companies are making the correct calculation that Obama will stop at nothing to destroy them.

I despise Obama with every breath I take. His hate for our country, his hate for people that want to have honest jobs and make a better life, his hate for whites, his hate for oh man so many things. I really have had enough of his crap.

With or without the moratorium and with or without an injunction against the moratorium ALL drilling in the Gulf is ending for both shallow and deep water operations.

Drilling permits are simply being refused. Most of the new regulations are written so that determination of compliance is at the DISCRETION of the department of interior. They have their people scared to death and as a result they aren’t signing off on any drilling permits.

Obama needs to be tried for treason.

Lawlessness at the DOJ: “Don’t Purge Dead or Ineligible From Voting Rolls”

Lawlessness at the DOJ: Voting Section Told Not To Enforce Purging the Dead or Ineligible from Voting Rolls

It's not just the New Black Panther case: in November 2009, political appointee Julie Fernandes told a packed room of Voting Section employees to simply ignore this provision of the "Motor Voter" law.

July 8, 2010

by J. Christian Adams

I was at the Voting Section of the Justice Department for over five years. This office is responsible for enforcing most federal election laws which do not involve criminal matters. My previous articles at Pajamas Media have spoken of the DOJ’s lawless abandonment of race-neutral enforcement of voting laws, and other outrageous conduct. I will continue to publish here at Pajamas Media more instances of failure to enforce the law equally by the Department.

One such instance relates to the Motor Voter law, and will shock Americans who care about integrity in the electoral process.

The “Motor Voter” law was passed in 1993 to promote greater voter registration in the United States. It did this — most Americans now know from visits to the DMV — by requiring states to offer voter registration materials whenever someone had contact with a variety of state offices. These included welfare offices, social service agencies, and motor vehicle departments.

A lesser-known provision also obliged the states to ensure that no ineligible voters were on the rolls — including dead people, felons, and people who had moved. Our current Department of Justice is anxious to encourage the obligations to get everyone registered, but explicitly unwilling to enforce federal law requiring states to remove the dead or ineligible from the rolls.

In November 2009, the entire Voting Section was invited to a meeting with Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes, a political employee serving at the pleasure of the attorney general. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Motor Voter enforcement decisions.

The room was packed with dozens of Voting Section employees when she made her announcement regarding the provisions related to voter list integrity:

We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.

Jaws dropped around the room.

It is one thing to silently adopt a lawless policy of refusing to enforce a provision of federal law designed to bring integrity to elections. It is quite another to announce the lawlessness to a room full of people who have sworn an oath to fairly enforce the law.

Worse yet, it is a broken campaign promise by Barack Obama, and I’m sure he would not be happy to have heard the announcement. After all, his Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez has been traveling around the country bashing the Bush-era Department of Justice. Perez says as often as he can:

Those who had been entrusted with the keys to the division treated it like a buffet line at the cafeteria, cherry-picking which laws to enforce.

Yet at this meeting, Ms. Fernandes openly relished her time at the buffet line in the Voting Section cafeteria.

The problem with this sort of lawlessness, apart from the fact that it is becoming a trend in this administration, is that it nullifies the important compromise that Congress reached in 1993. Greater access to registration came by turning welfare agencies into voter registration offices, but the law also included provisions to ensure greater integrity. It is a dangerous development for our electoral system when one part of that compromise is tossed overboard by a bureaucrat.

It will be impossible for this purportedly transparent administration to deny this direction was given. There were dozens of good people in the room that I know care more about the truth than about saving Ms. Fernandes’ career.

Plus, the cases the Justice Department has brought — or not brought — corroborate the account: the Department has not filed a single case under the Motor Voter provision where there are problems.

Are there problems with list integrity? Yes, but that’s a story for another article. Even worse than not bringing cases, the Holder Justice Department has dismissed a case against Missouri that the previous administration had started. In many places in Missouri, there are more voters than humans with a heartbeat old enough to vote. Instead of fully litigating the case to a favorable outcome, the DOJ made it go away, nicely, quietly, completely. Sound familiar?

The blame-Bush instincts of this administration will no doubt lead to talk about all the cases the Bush DOJ didn’t bring to open up public welfare agencies to voter registration. Good luck. I’d suggest citizens go online and see the Section 7 NVRA, or “Motor Voter,” cases that were commenced under the Bush administration. Bush brought voter registration cases under Motor Voter against Arizona and Illinois.

This Justice Department, in contrast, has “cherry picked” which parts of Motor Voter law they will enforce. You wouldn’t think it has anything to do with politics or the upcoming elections, would you?

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

Julie Fernandes has never had a job outside the progressive/soros/dem world. She is a Chicago thugette from way back.

The author of the article we are getting to know from his speaking out about the Black Panthers case, J. Christian Adams has a website on which he tracks voter fraud and related issues.

Obama and His Family To Vacation In Maine


“I’m not going to rest or be satisfied until the leak is stopped at the source, the oil in the Gulf is contained and cleaned up, and the people in the Gulf are able to go back to their lives and their livelihoods.”

Barack Obama
May 14, 2010
Speaking On the Gulf Oil Spill Disaster

First Family To Vacation In Maine


The first family will spend next weekend vacationing on Mount Desert Island, according to U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree.

President Barack Obama and his family are scheduled to arrive Friday, July 16, and stay through Sunday, July 18.

Information about where the family would stay and the sights they might take in while visiting Maine was not available Friday night. The visit is a personal family vacation and no public appearances are scheduled, Pingree said.

“What an honor that the Obama family has chosen Maine for vacation when they could have gone anywhere in the country,” she said. “I think the Obamas will really enjoy the quiet woods, beautiful coast, wonderful people and everything else that brings thousands of families here every year.”

While White House officials were mum about where on the island the first family would stay, Obama has political connections on MDI. George Mitchell, U.S. special envoy for Middle East peace, owns a home in Seal Harbor. Mitchell and his wife, Heather, have two children, Andrew, 12, and Claire, 9. The Obama children, Malia and Sasha, are 12 and 9, respectively.

Last August, the first family visited Yellowstone National Park and Grand Canyon National Park. The Obamas also spent time on Martha’s Vineyard in August 2009.

Information about whether the family would arrive in Air Force One, the presidential jet, was not available. Neither the Bar Harbor Airport in Trenton nor the Portland International Jetport has runways long enough to accommodate the Boeing 747.

Air Force One could land at Bangor International Airport and the Obamas could take a helicopter to the airport in Trenton, then take a motorcade to MDI. Last summer, Air Force One landed on Cape Cod, the family took a helicopter to Martha’s Vineyard, then rode in a motorcade to the 28-acre compound where they stayed.

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

Good to see Obama’s hard at work at the oil spill. And it’s only 81 days old now! "Have you plugged the hole yet, daddy ?"

Not to worry, it is the teleprompter that is concerned 24/7. 0bama is more concerned about golf, parties and vacation.

Actually the more he stays on vacation and not in WDC the better for America.

Ariz. Democrats Blast Obama's Immigration Stance

Ariz. Democrats Blast Obama's Immigration Stance

Arizona Democrats, under siege because of President Barack Obama’s attacks on the state’s popular immigration law, are blasting his contentions that the southern border is secure.

Arizona Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Harry Mitchell and Gabrielle Giffords joined a growing Republican chorus in denouncing President Barack Obama for not pushing for more specific action in his Thursday speech on the nation’s immigration and border security issues, according to The Hill.

Obama said that the U.S.-Mexico border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years. But this ignores the fact that Mexico has levels of violence worse now than either Iraq or Afghanistan, and large sections of the border are ruled by drug cartels.

“The crisis on America’s borders won’t be addressed with words,” Giffords told The Hill. “I was disappointed to hear the president give short shrift to border security concerns by saying that our nation’s southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.
“That is not a sign of progress, it is a statement on the poor job we have done in securing the border for the past two decades.”

Arizonans certainly don’t feel safe. They continue to call for more to be done to secure the borders. The first- and second-term Arizona Democrats are increasingly bucking their own party’s stance on border security.

“As any politician knows, it is easier to make speeches than it is to make progress, and we need more than talk from the White House and Congress right now,” Kirkpatrick told The Hill.

The intra-party criticism comes as the House last week passed the fiscal year 2010 Supplemental Appropriations Bill, which includes $700 million in border security funds, including $50 million to deploy National Guard troops to the border states.

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

From the article it appears that some Dem Reps in AZ oppose the action and says they (Dem Reps) are in tough re-election bids. This action by Obama is certainly not going to help them as their voters know the situation is out of control.

Voters would be stupid to vote for anyone connected to Obama and that includes any democrat and I will add any rino that is not taking a consistant stand on this.

Obama the Black Panther's President and YOU Voted For This Racist President

Gibbs LIES and Says He Doesn't Know About The DOJ Voter Intimidation Case

Karl Rove on Black Panther Case: White House 'Thumbing Its Nose' at Voter Rights

FOX news

The White House is "thumbing its nose" at one of the most fundamental American rights by not investigating allegations that the Justice Department wrongly abandoned a 2008 voter intimidation case, former Bush adviser Karl Rove charged on Friday.

In an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly on 'America Live,' Rove accused White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs of "not telling the truth" when he said Thursday that he was not looking into allegations that the DOJ wrongly dismissed a case against the New Black Panther Party. He also accused the administration of "thumbing its nose at one of the most essential rights Americans have."

"Of course they're aware of this," Rove said. "I can't imagine that when the attorney general makes such a controversial decision, that they would have not discussed this with the White House.

Former Justice attorney J. Christian Adams testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on Tuesday that his former employer not only abandoned the voter intimidation case for racial reasons last year, but had instructed attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.

Gibbs, however, appeared to dismiss the New Black Panther case on Thursday, telling a reporter who questioned him on the matter that "I haven't paid any attention to it."


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

If Obama lets this Black Panther Party get off......he needs to leave office. Tyrants are not concerned with voter’s rights.

To let Gibbs get away with ..."I haven't paid any attention to it." as an acceptable response is just maddening.

The Dreams And Audacity Of Barack Obama: ‘Progress’ Report by Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

The Dreams And Audacity Of Barack Obama: ‘Progress’ Report

By Dr. Alan Bates, MD.

Dossier on Eric Holder: In a speech given during Black History month, AG Eric Holder labeled Americans as a bunch of “cowards” when it comes to race issues. During testimony before Congress, when asked if the Jihadist assassin of Fort Hood soldiers was inspired by radical Jihad, Mr. Holder refused to implicate radical Islam. No one in the Administration including deputy director of Homeland Security, Brennan, will state that Islamic terrorists are a specific threat to our nation---despite decades of destruction and mass murder which culminated in ‘911’. Arizona has been overrun by half million illegals with little border security response by the Federal government. There are even reports that Jihadists travel through South America to Mexico and then penetrate our southern border. Mr. Holder’s response, sue Arizona. Last week a DOJ lawyer resigned and testified under oath that his colleagues were ordered by the DOJ to dismiss a blatant case of white voter intimidation and threats by three black supremacists at a Philadelphia polling place, and further, to never prosecute cases against blacks who commit violations of the Voting Rights Act. Wonder if Mr. Holder knew this? So what conclusions can we draw about Eric Holder’s allegiance and his commitment to upholding the Federal laws which he is entrusted to enforce? Is he an American patriot? If not, to whom is his allegiance?

Dossier on Barry Soetoro—alias Barack Hussein Obama: Kenyan-borne and schooled in Muslim Indonesian school. Moved to America but hides his significant past at great expense. During his run for high office claimed to be a Christian. Elected by morons on the abstract platform of transparency and change with promise that all government business would be conducted openly with no hidden agenda. Mr. Obama without Congressional approval appointed over 30 ‘Czars’ to oversee his perverse un-American socialist programs. Turns out most of them range from self-avowed Communists to socialists, all conspiring with the Administration to destroy American capitalism and redistribute wealth as occurs in Fascist states. They started with takeover of the auto industry, with part ownership given to Obama’s SEIU supporters (basically Chicago union bosses and their thugs) who, with Obama’s help, want to amongst other things adopt a policy in which workers cannot vote secretly on controversial issues ‘near and dear’ to their bosses. Then, Mr. Obama and his social engineering appointees, with help from dishonest liberal extremist leaders in Congress, rammed a bankrupting healthcare law down the throat of Americans designed to ultimately give the Federal government control of not only your healthcare and access to all of your personal information, but ultimate control of your lifespan through rationing of care---all this at the hands of massive bureaucracy which will leave our healthcare system in shambles. All programs and paybacks combined, Mr. Obama has quadrupled the national debt since Bush left office, keeping in mind that budget overruns began under the Democratic Congress during Bush’s last term as Pelosi and Reid circumvented the President through special appropriations. The current fiscal path is terminal. It destroys America’s solvency. Finally, during Congressional recess this week, Obama appointed a non-practicing physician who publicly advocates rationing of care to head Medicare and Medicaid.

When Arizona tries to protect its borders from the surge in violent crime committed by Mexican drug and human trafficking cartels, Mr. Obama not only does not respond with Federal aid, but allows Mexican hypocrite and President Calderon to tell America that we should not block illegal immigration (Calderon obviously does not want all those millions of Mexican illegals sent back to Mexico). Worse, Holder and Obama not only refuse to enforce Federal laws, but have filed a lawsuit against Arizona. If that is not enough, the Feds will not prosecute ‘sanctuary cities’ for violations of existing law. Are they patriots?

Other assaults on American values, freedom and safety by the Left:

* Assault by Chicago’s Mayor Daley on law-abiding citizens’ access to firearms for self-defense, in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling that citizens have a right to possess firearms for that purpose. How? Daley’s new handgun registration requirements are so expensive and difficult that weapons will still primarily be in the hands of criminals. So why does the Mayor have armed bodyguards with automatic weapons? Is Daley a patriot?

* The Second Amendment states that ‘We the People’ can own and bear arms not only for self-defense but also in order to restore our government when taken over by tyrants. The Court conveniently forgot to mention that last part. Four of the high Court’s judges are apparently clueless about the 2nd Amendment since they voted against it. Are they patriots?

* Anti-American conduct: The Feds are allowing Muslims to conduct a convention in Chicago for the purpose of recruiting young Jihadists. Government is systematically targeting symbols of Christian religion while allowing public Islamic celebrations in Washington and turning a blind eye to the will of ‘We the People’ with regards to construction of mosques at the site of the destroyed World Trade Center. What next? Sharia Law? Remember that Obama for 20 years attended a church ‘pastured’ by a racist who preaches hatred of America and ‘white people’. Remember that Obama was quick to blame a white Cambridge cop as racist for arresting a black professor who resisted the officer’s request for identification. Michelle Obama publicly noted that she never was proud of America until her (narcissistic egomaniacal) husband was elected President. Are these American patriots?

* The Administration shows lack of support for the traditional family while condoning gay and transgender unions in speeches and by enforcing a new law that employers must allow a transgender parent up to 12 weeks off each year for ‘bonding’ to their children. Mr. Obama has nominated an unqualified non-committal Leftist to the Supreme Court, who has never been a judge or practicing attorney. Instead, she has written and spoken in favor of such heinous crimes as partial birth abortion.

Add it all up and we have a corrupt, lawless, bigoted, anti-Judeo-Christian Administration, which actively creates division along ethnic and racial boundaries in order to further their agenda. That agenda is to eradicate the Judeo-Christian nation whose values evolved for more than 235 years so as to enable every American to have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That is not the nation Obama and Holder and their radical supporters have in mind. Through creation of crises, their two-pronged approach is to seek national insolvency as well as division of the People with the goal that they can control and ultimately destroy the once-great nation of America which was founded through the Declaration of Independence and protected by the Constitution.

November is critical and the other half of all Christians who don’t bother to vote need to wake up or lose it.

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

I agree people need to wake up. If things to not change in November big time, so that it shows we ARE taking our country back, it will be too late. I really believe this. We need to be talking up the elections now to anyone we can. Let them know things if they are not paying attention.

Barack Hussein Obama The Worst CIC In History of USA

Barack Hussein Obama The Worst CIC In History of USA

Today we have a commander-in-chief who would prefer not to talk about actually winning:

“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur.”

In order to avoid the potential for some kind of awkward “victory,” our soldiers and Marines are literally unable to shoot when every element of common sense and the entire history of warfare tell them to shoot:

Troops: Strict war rules slow Marjah offensive
By Alfred de Montesquiou and Deb Riechmann – The Army Times
Monday Feb 15, 2010 15:08:51 EST

MARJAH, Afghanistan — Some American and Afghan troops say they’re fighting the latest offensive in Afghanistan with a handicap — strict rules that routinely force them to hold their fire.

Although details of the new guidelines are classified to keep insurgents from reading them, U.S. troops say the Taliban are keenly aware of the restrictions.
“I understand the reason behind it, but it’s so hard to fight a war like this,” said Marine Lance Cpl. Travis Anderson, 20, of Altoona, Iowa. “They’re using our rules of engagement against us,” he said, adding that his platoon had repeatedly seen men drop their guns into ditches and walk away to blend in with civilians.
If a man emerges from a Taliban hideout after shooting erupts, U.S. troops say they cannot fire at him if he is not seen carrying a weapon — or if they did not personally watch him drop one.
What this means, some contend, is that a militant can fire at them, then set aside his weapon and walk freely out of a compound, possibly toward a weapons cache in another location. It was unclear how often this has happened. In another example, Marines pinned down by a barrage of insurgent bullets say they can’t count on quick air support because it takes time to positively identify shooters.
“This is difficult,” Lance Cpl. Michael Andrejczuk, 20, of Knoxville, Tenn., said Monday. “We are trained like when we see something, we obliterate it. But here, we have to see them and when we do, they don’t have guns.”

That mindset doesn’t just apply to our fighting men on the ground, who are put in a position in which they can’t defend themselves if their enemy flouts Obama’s miserable rules of engagement. The pilots flying overhead and the artillerymen on surrounding positions are prevented from supporting our soldiers if they get pinned down, too:

Family calls U.S. military goals ‘fuzzy’Parents of soldier killed last week criticize firepower restrictions
By DENNIS YUSKO, Staff writer
First published in print: Thursday, June 24, 2010

QUEENSBURY — The parents of a Lake George soldier killed in Afghanistan attacked the Obama administration Wednesday for “flower children leadership,” and said they would work to change U.S. rules of military engagement in the nine-year conflict.
Hours before holding a wake for their 27-year-old son in Glens Falls, Bill and Beverly Osborn heavily criticized a military policy implemented last year that places some restrictions on when American troops can use firepower in Afghanistan. The new rules were set when Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal assumed command of the Afghanistan effort, and have reportedly made it harder for troops to call in for or initiate air power, artillery and mortars against the Taliban.
The counterinsurgency policy is intended to reduce civilian casualties and win the allegiance of Afghans, McChrystal had said. But echoing criticisms from the Vietnam era, Bill Osborn said Wednesday that it’s tied the hands of service members on the ground.
We send our young men and women to spill their blood and we won’t let them do their job,” he said from his Queensbury home. “Winning hearts and minds is wonderful, but first we have to defeat the enemy."

Obama doubled the American body count from Bush in 2009, and is now on pace to double his own total (which means four times the Bush 2008 Americans KIA).

We just suffered the highest number of American causalities for a single month in the history of the war. Mind you, EVERY month becomes the new “deadliest month” under Obama.

America firebombed Tokyo and Dresden in World War II. We didn’t make sure that every single person who could possibly get killed during an attack was a 100%-confirmed “militant” before we sent a wave of death at our enemies. If we’d resorted to that form of liberal moral stupidity, we would have lost – and the only question would have been how many of us would have ended up speaking German, and how many of us would have ended up speaking Japanese.

Thank God we didn’t have Obama leading us back then.

But our rules of engagement still weren’t getting enough American soldiers killed, so Team Obama came up with a better idea: how about ordering soldiers to go into battle with unloaded weapons? That’s right. Soldiers are now told to wait until they actually start falling down on the ground dead before they can actually be allowed to fumble a round into the chamber.

Fighting a War without Bullets?
by Chris Carter
Human Events


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.

In other words, our guys can’t prepare their weapons to actually fire until they are already under attack.

Imagine sending our police into a building filled with armed gang members like that.

And you want to know how to win a medal in Obama’s army? Don’t do anything. Certainly don’t actually shoot at the enemy.

Hold fire, earn a medal
By William H. McMichael – Staff writer

Navy Times

Wednesday May 12, 2010 15:51:31 EDT

U.S. troops in Afghanistan could soon be awarded a medal for not doing something, a precedent-setting award that would be given for “courageous restraint” for holding fire to save civilian lives.

The proposal is now circulating in the Kabul headquarters of the International Security Assistance Force, a command spokesman confirmed Tuesday.
“The idea is consistent with our approach,” explained Air Force Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis. “Our young men and women display remarkable courage every day, including situations where they refrain from using lethal force, even at risk to themselves, in order to prevent possible harm to civilians. In some situations our forces face in Afghanistan, that restraint is an act of discipline and courage not much different than those seen in combat actions.”
Soldiers are often recognized for non-combat achievement with decorations such as their service’s commendation medal. But most of the highest U.S. military decorations are for valor in combat. A medal to recognize a conscious effort to avoid a combat action would be unique.

It used to be that the hero was the guy who took on the enemy. Now it’s the guy who crawls into the fetal position and walks away from a battle with an unfired weapon.

And then there is Obama’s timetable for a cut-and-run had nothing whatsoever about satisfying military issues and everything about satisfying political ones within Obama’s radical leftwing base. The military wasn’t even consulted, according to General David Petraeus:

McCain: “General, at any time during the deliberations that the military shared with the President when he went through the decision-making process, was there a recommendation from you or anyone in the military that we set a date of July 2011?”

Petraeus: “Uh, there was not.”

McCain: “There was not – by any military person that you know of?”

Petraeus: “Not that I’m aware of.”

Nobody knows what the hell is going on over there. Are we going to stay and fight? Or cut and run? Most of the Obama administration is saying that we are most definitely going to cut and run in July 2011. Take Vice President Biden, who says, “In July of 2011 you’re going to see a whole lot of people moving out. Bet on it.” All Obama will say is that “We didn’t say we’d be switching off the lights and closing the door behind us.” which isn’t really saying anything.

All the money is on a pullout, as Obama cuts and runs. The Afghan people know that, know that the Taliban will soon be their landlords, and aren’t about to risk any kind of meaningful alliance with America that would be necessary to actually winning over there.

Do you remember FDR telling Churchill, “I’ll give you a year, and then we’re running with our tail between our legs where it belongs”???

If it’s a war worth fighting, it is a war worth sticking around to fight.

We will win when we allow our fighting men to fight. And not until then.

If you wonder whether Afghanistan is going to become like Vietnam, stop wondering: it already has. Because we’re fighting Afghanistan the same way we fought Vietnam – with the mindset of putting our troops in danger while simultaneously preventing them from securing victory.

New Black Panther Party Leader Malik Shabazz Heaping Praise on Osama Bin Laden

This is the New Black Panther Party Leader praising Osama Bin Laden just 6 months after the September 11th terrorist attack. Shabazz called Osama “a brother” and “a bold man” before praising him for “standing up” and getting Bush “shook up.”

These are the kind of people Barack Obama and Eric Holder are protecting.

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

Obama draws no line with evil. He seeks it out, to defend or protect these people in any way is to agree with them and what they say and stand for.

When that demonic mosque opens by “ground zero”, that will empower people like this.
Not only have I not heard one muslin say they object, I have never heard one muslim object to terrorism, including 9/11.

The General and the Community Organizer

The General and the Community Organizer

by Paul R. Hollrah

Channel-surfing from ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN through MSNBC and Fox News, the inside-the-beltway pundits had a field day trying to get inside the heads of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, General Stanley McChrystal, and McChrystal’s top aides. The one thing common to all of the analyses, by the most famous and highly-paid talking heads in the Western World, was that they are all wrong… dead wrong. What is certain is that they all owe General McChrystal and his senior aides an apology for assuming that they are lame-brained numbskulls.

The facts of the McChrystal case are not in dispute. General McChrystal and his senior officers allowed a reporter for Rolling Stone Magazine, Michael Hastings, to have almost unprecedented access during an extended stay in Paris. The extended stay was due, in part, to an excess of atmospheric ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, keeping the McChrystal party grounded for days.

In an interview with CNN, Hastings reported that he had a tape recorder in his hand most of the time and that McChrystal was “very aware” that his comments would find their way into print. He said, “McChrystal and his people set no ground rules for their conversations, although they did ask that some parts of their conversations were off the record.” Hastings subsequently published a lengthy profile of General McChrystal on June 22, titled, The Runaway General.

As Hastings wrote in his profile, McChrystal thought that Obama looked “uncomfortable and intimidated” by the roomful of military brass during their first meeting. Of their second meeting, an advisor to McChrystal quoted the general as saying that it was “a 10-minute photo op.” He went on to say, “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about (McChrystal), who he was. Here’s the guy who’s going to run his f_ _ _ing war, but he didn’t seem very engaged. The Boss was pretty disappointed.”

As General McChrystal flew from Afghanistan to Washington to face Obama in the Oval Office, the almost unanimous opinion of the talking heads was that the comments made by McChrystal and his staff were off the cuff and inadvertent. But to believe that is to totally ignore who these men are.

General McChrystal and his top officers are not simple-minded, knuckle-dragging brutes. To the contrary, they are intelligent, thoughtful, highly educated, patriots… graduates of West Point and other fine universities… who are dedicated to duty, honor, and country. To think that such men would be so careless as to speak unflatteringly of Obama, Biden, and other top administration figures, in the presence of a reporter for a notoriously left wing publication, defies logic… at the very least. To think that men who are trained to be careful and deliberate in everything they do, could do something so careless and so unguarded is simply beyond comprehension.

I would argue that McChrystal and his aides knew exactly what they were doing.

From the day that he became the handpicked “spear carrier” for Obama’s unique brand of warfare… playing at being Commander in Chief while playing to his far left constituency… McChrystal’s life had been one of constant frustration. After telling Obama exactly how many troops he needed to carry out his mission, Obama dithered for months before deciding to give him just half the troops he requested. McChrystal could not have been happy about that.

The Obama team insisted on new Rules of Engagement designed to reduce collateral damage (civilian casualties). Obama’s ROE required that U.S. troops must be able to see the enemy with weapon in hand before they were allowed to return fire. One videotape circulated on the Internet showed a platoon of Marines pinned down by enemy sniper fire. But since the enemy was firing from some distance behind the open window of a building, the Marines could not actually see the weapon being fired. Although they were taking deadly fire, they were prohibited by the ROE from putting small arms fire or an RPG through the window opening.

Under Obama’s politically correct ROE, our soldiers and Marines were required to fight with one hand tied behind their backs. McChrystal could not have been happy about that.

A strict new interrogation policy, dictated by Attorney General Eric Holder, required that prisoners must be delivered to an Interrogation Center within twenty-four hours of being captured or be released. A great deal of actionable intelligence was lost as a result and battle-hardened enemy fighters were returned to the field to kill Americans. McChrystal must have found that to be incomprehensible.

But the greatest insult to our troops in the field, and to the officers who lead them, may be a new battlefield medal designed by the Obama team. It is called the Courageous Restraint Medal and is awarded to soldiers and Marines who demonstrate uncommon restrain in combat by not firing their weapons even when they feel threatened by the enemy. Would we be surprised to learn that the preponderance of these medals were awarded posthumously? McChrystal must have found that to be an insanity.

I suggest that, having his best military judgments subjected to the White House political sieve for nearly a year and a half, McChrystal decided that he’d had enough. And when he announced to his senior staff that he was prepared to retire they decided to push back… to make the most of a bad situation. It was clear that, if McChrystal were to simply take off his uniform and walk away, his retirement would be page-twenty news for a day or two before the mainstream media and the American people forgot all about him.

They had to make the most of his retirement because it provided a one-time opportunity to show the American people, as well as our enemies and our allies, that the man who claims the title of Commander in Chief of the U.S. military does not command the respect of our men and women in uniform. To make the most of that opportunity they had to choose their messenger very carefully.

They knew that, by openly showing their disrespect for Obama in front of just any newsman, they may not attract the attention they desired. Like any astute observer of the MSM, they knew that most reporters would turn on their own mothers if it meant a good story. But they could not take a chance that a mainstream media reporter might suffer a rare pang of conscience when confronted with the prospect of ruining the careers of some of the most senior officers in the War on Terror. They had to fix the odds as much as possible in their favor so they chose to use Michael Hastings and Rolling Stone Magazine.

During the long hours that General McChrystal was in the air between Kabul and Washington, Obama knew that he had just two choices… both bad. He could declare McChrystal to be an irreplaceable asset in the war effort, give him a public reprimand, and send him back to Kabul. Or he could fire McChrystal, sending a clear message that, at least in his own mind, he was the Commander in Chief.

In the former case, he was certain to appear weak and ineffectual… a man not totally in charge. In the latter case, he might at least win a few rave reviews from the Kool-Ade drinkers in the mainstream media. He chose the latter of the two options.

But what is now lost in all of the hand-wringing and speculation is the fact that McChrystal and his people have succeeded in doing exactly what they set out to do. They wanted to plant the seed in the minds of the American people that Obama is not up to the task of being Commander in Chief and that he does not command the respect of the men and women of the uniformed services… from the newest Private E-1 up to the top four-star generals and admirals.

That seed is now firmly planted and it cannot be unplanted.

From this day forward, no one will have to tell the American people that Stanley McChrystal is a true warrior, a man’s man, and that Barack Obama is nothing more than a… community organizer. Well done, General!

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

Spot on analysis.

Good read, and I will also add that one has to wonder how many of our troops might even be thinking when is Eric Holder and or Obama going to decide to go after them for killing a terrorist. With the R.O.E.'s show how much they have to walk on egg shells with the enemy, putting our troops lives more at risk

And THIS is an outrage IMO.... a Courageous Restraint Medal ..OMG.

Liberal and Progressive Groups ...'One Nation" ...Aim To Copy Tea Party Passion and Energy

From Glenn Beck show....... Obama, The Democrats, Progressives


With 'One Nation,' liberal groups aim to match tea party's energy, influence

The Washington Post

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, the “tea party” movement must be honored.

In an effort to replicate the tea party’s success, 170 liberal and civil rights groups are forming a coalition that they hope will match the movement’s political energy and influence. They promise to “counter the tea party narrative” and help the progressive movement find its voice again after 18 months of floundering.

The large-scale attempt at liberal unity, dubbed “One Nation,” will try to revive themes that energized the progressive grassroots two years ago. In a repurposing of Barack Obama’s old campaign slogan, organizers are demanding “all the change” they voted for — a poke at the White House.

But the liberal groups have long had a kind of sibling rivalry, jostling over competing agendas and seeking to influence some of the same lawmakers. In forming the coalition, the groups struggled to settle on a name. Even now, two of the major players disagree about who came up with the idea of holding a march this fall.

Liberal leaders see "much of the progressive agenda at risk in this election," said Paul Starr, a professor of public affairs at Princeton University and co-editor of the American Prospect, a liberal magazine. "There is no choice but for these groups to get together. The historical pattern is that voter turnout falls disproportionately among minorities and young people at these midterm elections, so they are fighting a historical trend."

Leaders of the groups have been meeting for about three months in a planning process that some participants called arduous, debating everything from the name of the coalition to what the branding and logo should look like.

The coalition's first goal is to plan a march to "demonstrate to Congress that these agenda items have support across multiple demographics," Jealous said. The demonstration, to be held Oct. 2, will center on pressing for more government spending on job creation.

"This is a way to create some intensity," said Eric Rodriguez, vice president of NCLR. "Month after month, we spend time pointing to these employment figures, and we're still not breaking through on the disparities in a way that we think is important."

This week at their national conventions both NAACP and NCLR leaders will begin talking to their members about "One Nation," and they are seeking money from foundations for the effort. They hope it will be a show of force that will remind both Congress and the White House that they are out there.

Obama, who some activists say has not lived up to their expectations, could also be pushed harder, said Michael McGerr, a professor of history at Indiana University who has studied political campaigns.

Just a little look up shows the Nazi associations of One Nation..

‘One People, One Nation, One Leader’

“The cult of the leader, which surpassed any normal level of trust in political leadership, is central to an understanding of the appeal of National Socialism. It was undoubtedly the most important theme running through Nazi propaganda.

CBS Bans Ad Opposing Ground Zero Mosque

“CBS Standards & Practices has determined the Ad you submitted is not within CBS Broadcast Standards.” Or so the the Republican Trust was told by media honchos. Reports are that other media outlets are dragging their feet.

Wild Thing's comment......

I don't get it on this. If I lived in NY and was right there I would do all I could to stop this thing from happening. I realize many in NY are fighting back but my question is why not ALL New Yorkers. How can even one person living there think this is OK. How sad that even people on the left cannot love America enough to say no to the enemy building their mosque. God bless those in NY that are at least trying to fight this monster from happening.

And then there is the POS Mayor Blumberg's support of this project....why? What is in it for him? You would think he would be fighting against the mosque instead of supporting it.

Carnahan Drops Prices For OBAMA Event ~ " LACK of Interest! " LOL

Carnahan Drops Prices For Obama Event

Obama is the best fundraiser the Dem Party has, but his drawing power is way down from its peak during the '08 campaign. Obama is heading to MO and NV today to raise money for Sec/State Robin Carnahan (D), running for an open Senate seat, and Senate Maj. Leader Harry Reid.

But Carnahan's campaign wasn't able to completely sell out the Folly Theater, where Obama will appear for a grassroots event on Carnahan's behalf, at the prices they wanted. Tickets once priced at $250 are now going for $99, while $35 tickets are half off.

The grassroots event at the 1,078-seat theater is expected to net $250K for Carnahan's campaign, the Kansas City Star reported today.

Court Rejects US Bid To Keep Drilling Moratorium ~ Obama The TYRANT Gets TRUMPED!

A federal appeals court has rejected the U.S. government's effort to keep a six-month deepwater drilling moratorium in place.


The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has just denied OBAMA's request for a stay on U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman’s order striking down the Obama blanket deepwater drilling ban.

A U.S. appeals court on Thursday rejected the Obama administration’s request to put on hold a ruling that lifted a temporary moratorium on deepwater drilling in the wake of the BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The ruling is a setback for the White House which had sought to suspend deepwater drilling of new wells for six months while it investigated the cause of the April 20 explosion aboard the Transocean Ltd. rig and adopt new stricter safety regulations.
…The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, based in New Orleans, ruled about 90 minutes after hearing arguments over the administration’s request to put on hold a lower court ruling that lifted the six-month moratorium.

Catherine Wannamaker, a lawyer for several environmental groups that support the moratorium, said she was disappointed by the ruling but expressed confidence that the Obama administration ultimately will win its appeal.

Wannamaker said it's unclear whether any offshore companies would resume drilling because Thursday's ruling doesn't resolve the case.
"Clearly, it's legally allowed," she said. "The question is, practically speaking, will anybody do it given the uncertainty? It's hard to know what will happen."

The CEO of one of the companies that sued to stop the moratorium, Covington-based Hornbeck Offshore Services, said he didn't know if any of the companies involved planned to resume drilling.

"We need to get back to work," Todd Hornbeck said of his company, which provides vessels that serve the offshore industry. "We can't work without any drilling units working."

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a vocal critic of the moratorium, watched the hearing from the courtroom gallery. He said he was pleased by the ruling, but he remains concerned about the de facto moratorium that is keeping drilling from resuming and the threat of a second moratorium from Salazar.

"The federal government not being able to do its job is not a reason for thousands of Louisianians to lose their jobs," Jindal said.



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

Nice to get a good news story, Heh heh This is really going to get Obowma wee wee’d up

God bless those that love America and realizes this no drilling is ia killer to jobs and survival.

Reality sadly tells us Obama and this regime won’t obey this ruling. They don’t believe in the rule of law or any rules at all restraining them.

Sarah Palin Releases “Mama Grizzlies” Internet Ad

A new video from Sarah Palin's political action committee invokes the power of “common-sense conservative women” as she urges “mama grizzlies” to let the nation hear them roar.

The campaign-style video features the former Alaska governor calling forth a "stampede" of conservative women who want to change Washington, according to The Swamp political blog in the Chicago Tribune.

The SarahPAC video features footage and audio from various appearances of the former Republican vice-presidential nominee.

From the video:

“This year will be remembered as a year when common sense conservative women get things done for our country,”

“All across this country, women are standing up and speaking out for common sense solutions.”

“These policies coming out of D.C. right now, this fundamental transformation of America — well a lot of women concerned about their kids’ futures are saying we don’t like this fundamental transformation and we’re going to do something about it,”

“That’s why we’re seeing, with all these women who are banding together rising up saying, ‘No, this isn’t right for our kids and for our grand-kids and we’re going to do something about this.’”

“We’re going to turn this thing around. We’re going to get our country back on the right track,”

“Look out Washington, cause there’s a whole stampede of elephants crossing the line and the e.t.a. for them stampeding through is November 2, 2010.”

Marine Killed While Rescuing Hurt Comrade

Marine Killed While Rescuing Hurt Comrade


When Stacia Harris worried about her husband fighting in Afghanistan, he would remind her that the Marines never leave anyone behind. So she's not surprised he made the ultimate sacrifice.

Cpl. Larry Harris Jr., 24, was killed while carrying a wounded comrade to safety.

"He wouldn't have been OK without his junior Marines coming home," Stacia Harris told AOL News in a telephone interview today from her parents' home in the Denver suburb of Parker.

Two squads were on patrol July 1 in the southern Afghanistan province of Helmand, a Taliban stronghold, when Lance Cpl. Jake Henry was shot in the leg. Harris, a squad leader, was carrying Henry to safety when he tripped a roadside bomb, taking the brunt of it, said Ralph Montgomery, Harris' father-in-law.

"Larry threw my brother out of the way" during the explosion, Lacie Poley said in a phone interview from Casper, Wyo. She said others in the squad had told them of Harris' quick action.

Henry, 21, is in Germany undergoing a sixth surgery tonight to repair the gunshot wound to his leg and shrapnel injuries to his leg, hand and back, Poley said.

For Stacia Harris, her husband's act of heroism was part of his character. In addition to the Purple Heart he was awarded posthumously, he had also received the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal -- for helping civilians involved in a serious car accident near Camp Pendleton, Calif., where he had been based.

"He always put someone else before himself," she recalled.

His deployment to Afghanistan was Harris' second tour, having previously served in Iraq. Had he not re-enlisted he would have been home two months ago.

"He loved that he was in the infantry. He loved that he was on the front line," his widow said. "He loved, loved, loved the Marine Corps."
Harris had also received a Combat Action Ribbon, a National Defense Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Medal and the sea Service Deployment Ribbon.

Speaking via his sister's cell phone from the hospital in Germany, Henry said that Harris had high expectations for his squad, but taught him to be a better Marine.

"He was a really, really good friend; a great brother, a mentor, and I really miss him," an emotional Henry said via his sister. "He was a great guy all around."

Henry is scheduled to be transferred to Bethesda, Md., this week for more treatment, before being allowed to return to Wyoming. He is expected to make a full recovery, Poley said.

When Stacia Harris felt unsettled about her husband's service, he would tell her, "If it's God's will, I'll be home, and if it's my purpose to give my life for my country, it's going to be OK and you'll be fine," she recalled.

Harris, who played high school football and ran track and field, also loved to dance, especially to Michael Jackson. He and some friends had a hip-hop group, 2 Real 4 Da Mind, that performed in Boulder, where he attended high school.

But mostly, friends and family remembered him as someone who was confident and determined and made those around him laugh.

"He was so full of life and light and always the center of attention. Everyone was always fighting over who got to sit by Larry," his widow recalled.

For Stacia Harris, a 22-year-old Yale graduate, the future is uncertain. The couple, who had known each other since middle school, wed in March. Harris was deployed April 22.

Although Harris had several more months in Afghanistan, he would talk with his wife of their plans when he returned. They were going to move to California to be near Camp Pendleton.

Stacia Harris last spoke with her husband in the week before his death.

"He called me to let me know he had decided what his first meal would be when he got home," she said. "He wanted steak and mashed potatoes and asparagus. And he said, 'We can even have a bottle of wine if you want. I think we'll have a reason to celebrate.' "

Harris was the 10th Marine from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force to be killed in Afghanistan in the past two months.

Lawyer Who Defended 'American Taliban' Now Heads DOJ Suit Against Arizona

Tony West, assistant U.S. attorney general

Lawyer Who Defended 'American Taliban' Now Heads DOJ Suit Against Arizona

FOX News

The federal prosecutor tasked with quarterbacking the Obama administration's high-profile case against Arizona's immigration law is no stranger to controversy or the limelight.

Justice Department attorney Tony West is a member of the so-called "Gitmo 9" -- a group of lawyers who have represented terror suspects.

West, the assistant attorney general for the department's Civil Division, once represented "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh, a controversial move that West feared would derail his political ambitions and helped delay his nomination to the department for three months in 2009.

He helped negotiate a 20-year sentence for Lindh, an American citizen who was 21 years old when he was captured in Afghanistan in 2001. Under the deal, Lindh avoided a life sentence by pleading guilty to serving in the Taliban army and carrying weapons, and the government dropped its most serious charges, including conspiracy to kill Americans and engaging in terrorism.

Now West will lead the U.S. effort to block Arizona's immigration law from its July 29 implementation. The law makes it a crime to be in the state without immigration papers and requires police to determine whether suspects are in the country legally -- a provision that critics say will promote racial profiling and is unconstitutional.

What also ticks me off is our taxes pay this horrible person's salary. So wse are paying him to do this suit against AZ. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

How Obama Used an Army of Thugs to Steal the 2008 Democratic Party Nomination

How Obama Used an Army of Thugs to Steal the 2008 Democratic Party Nomination


By Fred Dardick

Think those billy club armed New Black Panther thugs in Philadelphia were the first time Obama used Stalinist tactics to intimidate voters and disenfranchise the American people?

Think again.

In testimony this week before Congress, former Justice Department Official J. Christian Adams revealed that not only were similar claims “pervasive”, but Obama activists committed the “same” crimes during the 2008 Democratic primary to help then Sen. Obama defeat Democratic heir apparent Hillary Clinton.

Obama gamed the system in 2008 by not only allowing an army of young men station themselves outside polling locations in African American communities to prevent elderly women and others from voting for their chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, but he also trained thousands of willing accomplices—while I do not have confirmation, I do sense the presence of ACORN here—spread throughout the Democratic caucuses to commit voter fraud on a massive scale.

The movie We Will Not Be Silenced”, made by Democratic Party activist Gigi Gaston, produced by Bettina Sofia Viviano, and executive produced by former Clinton Campaign Regional Director John Siegel, documents how the unknown Senator from Illinois used “falsified delegate counts, falsified documents, and other violations” to beat the seemingly unbeatable Clinton machine and claim the Democratic nomination.

The documentary describes “the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign… ‘Change’ from Chicago encouraged and created an army to steal caucus packets, falsify documents, change results, allow unregistered people to vote, scare and intimidate Hillary supporters, stalk them, threaten them, lock them out of their polling places, silence their voices and stop their right to vote.”

“Teachers, professors, civil rights activists, lawyers, janitors, physicists, ophthalmologists, accountants, mathematicians, retirees… discuss how their party has disenfranchised them, and how, when they saw and reported multiple instances of fraud, everyone turned a blind eye. Rather than support and protect the voices and votes of its loyal members, the DNC chose to sweep this under the rug by looking the other way.”

During the election the Hillary campaign issued multiple press releases in an attempt to publicize these events and bring them to the voter’s attention, but to no avail. The main stream media, like the Democrat Party leadership, had already chosen their candidate.

They willfully ignored the worst election abuses in a generation and allowed an immoral and unworthy man take control of this great nation.

I highly recommend you watch the entire video; it will only take about 35 minutes and is well worth the time. Be sure to forward it on to others, because everyone should know the true story about how Obama became President.

A link to the We Will Not Be Silenced website.

The documentary is available in four parts on YouTube


You can watch the FULL length version of the film HERE.

It also has the videos seperated below the FULL length version that is located at the top of the page,

We Will Not Be Silenced Highlights

Part 1, 3:35, “Obama supporters were going back through the crowd, telling the people that were on the other side of the table and people outside (Hillary supporters), that they could go home, that they had been counted. I turned and said ‘Don’t they need to sign a sheet first?’ And of course, that is how they are counted. A lot of those people who went home (without signing), English was not their first language.”
Part 1, 4:45, “I was listening to a conversation… The people were talking about how they were going to be collecting names for the following day, asking people if they were coming back to caucus… They were talking about how they were going to be taking those names and they wouldn’t have to be physically there, but their votes would be counted.”
Part 2, 0:25, Dr. Linda Hayes: “We investigated fraud at the precinct level in conventions all over south Houston… Hillary attained 51% of the votes in Texas and by popular vote Obama only attained 47.4%. As a scientist and mathematician I was curious as the results came in from the precincts and that the precinct caucuses did not reflect those numbers, so I could see something was wrong… We laboriously went through each of the (caucus) sign in sheets to see if they were properly filled out… and many, many, many Obama people either came to the wrong precinct, they did not sign in properly, they did not show ID, or they had not voted that day… How they determine the delegates is on these sign in sheets. So when so many people were registered illegally for Obama, they attained the lion’s portion of the delegates.”
Part 2, 5:35, John Siegel: “Hillary won the popular vote by about 4%, but ended up losing the caucuses by 10%. So there is this huge 14 point swing between what Hillary should have won in a normal state and what she got at the end of the caucuses in Texas.”
Part 2, 6:20, “The worst thing that we saw in Indiana, was parents coming into the office saying that the Gary Indiana Public School System had bussed their children to Crown Point Indiana to vote in the election. That was a great civics lesson, but if children were being told to go to the polls and vote for Obama, which they were, parents were livid. They were outraged and they wanted to know what could be done about this… It was atrocious, because what lesson in civics were kids learning that day? Win by any means necessary? The right to vote is a sacred right in America, and we take school children and bus them on a school day, tell them who to vote for, then pay them for their lunch, and then dismiss them from school early on taxpayer money?”
Part 3, 0:00, “By about twelve o’clock, one o’clock on election day, all hell broke loose. We started getting phone calls from people at various precincts where there were Obama supporters getting sign-ins before the polls had even closed. We had people who were being shouted down and intimidated when they were for Hillary Clinton.”
Part 3, 3:54, Civil Rights Activist who had marched with Martin Luther King: “I had come to Indiana in the early afternoon about one o’clock. I was just sort of riding through the communities to get a feel for what was going on… There were some guys who had put up lawn chairs in front of the door going into the community center, so I stopped and parked my car. I got out of my car and there was this lady, probably about 80 years old, who was slowly walking up the street. As she was approaching the entranceway to go into the building, one of the young men called to her ‘If you’re not voting for Obama, go home, because you’re not voting here today.’ She turned and walked away. The pain that I felt, because of the people who have fought for African Americans to have the right to vote, this fight that has gone on for many, many, many years and to see two African American young men deny the right, under the veiled threat of violence, to a woman who looked to be around 80 years old, and not allow her an opportunity to vote. I felt appalled. While I was standing there, there were other people approaching, maybe four or five, and when they heard that they all turned and walked away.”
Part 3, 7:20, Kevin Dujan, Iowa: “There were these two women sitting at the table checking in people, looking over names. I went standing behind the two elderly women that we had brought to the caucus location and they mysteriously could not find their names in the book. The two women saw that these women had Hillary stickers on them… so they weren’t going to let them caucus. They said ‘Oh, you must be in some other caucus.’ I said ‘Look lady, I’m from Chicago and I know tricks like this. Let me see that book or we’re going to get the precinct captain over here and we’re going to look and find the names together. I guarantee this woman’s in here, because she’s not a liar. She’s ninety years old and has been looking forward to this. Don’t tell me she’s not in the book.’ Well then, wouldn’t you know it, miraculously and mysteriously, once I made that big of a push, she magically found her name in the book and let her go be a part of the caucus… I noticed that that was not happening for any of the Obama people, they were just getting waved right through.”
Part 4, 5:45, “I thought it was an isolated incident, just in my precinct. It’s not, and that what bothers me. How can we not look at the system? If it happens in every precinct and every one of us has a very similar story, I can not believe that we don’t see it as manipulating a situation. People told me, Obama supporters who went to the training, that they have been trained to be aggressive.”
Part 4, 6:20, “They knew from the beginning all the problems with all the security holes in the caucus. They knew they filtered out people. They knew the low turn out rates. They must have known from other elections how many votes from caucus states are not exact votes, but just an estimate projected from news organizations.”


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

There are eye-witnesses to the fraud and strong-arm tactics of the Obama campaign. Excellent documentary!!!


•Flooded the voter sites with fake voters
•Bused underage people to voting sites (school children) to "vote"
•Locked voters out of the building while caucus voting was going on inside
•Lied to voters who had not yet voted that they could go home and that their vote had been counted
•Locked up the sign-in sheets after the count so no one could inspect them
•Falsified the total vote counts on sign-in sheets (10 Hillary + 6 Obama became 10 Obama + 6 Hillary)
•Had Obama workers sign voting sheets with names of people not in attendance
•Electioneered by putting Obama stickers on Hillary voters
•Sat in election worker positions and pretended not to find older or easily intimidated Hillary voters' names
•Intimidated Hillary caucus goers with large numbers of partisan Obama caucus voters who threatened them, deliberately misinterpreted any gesture as a vote for Obama, and "got in their faces"
•Told Hillary voters that they could not vote at certain precincts
•Threw away sign-in sheets that favored Hillary
•Announced a "Hand count" of absentee ballots that had already been sent to the downtown office (Gary, Indiana's mayor did this)
•Made up target totals and intimidated caucus goers to agree the counts were correct
•Replaced real sign-in sheets with falsified sign-in sheets
•Wrote in Obama as the presidential vote when it was left blank
•Harrassed Hillary supporters during and after the state election process
•Refused to recognize Hillary delegates, and denied them standing at the convention
•Revoked superdelegate status from Hillary delegates if they refused to support Obama

Very frightening! No wonder the PUMAs are mad! Thank God for these people speaking out and for the people that did this film about what happened. I think it will be bad again in November. The Repubicans need to watch these videos the GOP/RNC and wise up to the truth about Obama and how he wins and how he will try to get his side of the isle to win elections again in the future.

I urge anyone who cares about the integrity of the electoral process to watch these videos.

Here is an issue Dems and Republicans can unite on - Obama isn’t running a campaign - he’s staging a coup.

And since it worked for him in the primary, you can be sure to expect more of the same.

Obama:" I will not rest "

A Humble Act of Patriotism: Homeless Man Saves Fallen American Flag...Thank you Sir!

"The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing." (USC Title 4. Chapter 4. § 8j)

During a weekend storm last Sunday, an American Flag displayed on a pole outside of a federal contractor's (METI Inc.) building in El Paso, Texas fell to the ground in driving wind and rain. When employees arrived the following morning, they found their flag folded military style and the pole secured alongside the building. Mystified as to how Old Glory found such a cozy resting place, they turned to their surveillance cameras only to find that the patriotic act was the handiwork of a simple passer-by; a Good Samaritan who happened to be walking past the location when the flag fell to the pavement at 1:40 AM.

The story would have been heartfelt and may have even invoked a sense of pride in this great nation and its loyal citizens if the heroic tale ended there, but this story revealed an even greater picture of devotion to one's country regardless of the hand that may have been dealt to an individual in this Land of Opportunity.

The Good Samaritan; the altruistic passer-by; was a homeless man. Gustus Bozarth to pay him his full respect. He lives in a makeshift apartment in the back of a nearby warehouse. He was simply walking by the night the flag fell amidst an onslaught of wind and rain and felt a duty to his country and all that it represents to show our national symbol the respect that it deserves.

The video above , tells the tale of Gustus traveling the country and once working as a security guard in Tampa where he learned how to properly fold a flag. It also features a few words from this wonderful patriot where he tells the reporter that the flag symbolizes Freedom.

One man - a homeless man- understands the duty owed to his nation's flag, and despite all that he must overcome on a daily basis, still has enough admiration and respect for his great nation that he would never allow the Stars and Stripes to be soiled. He said "It's a small respect, folding the flag like that." After all that he has undoubtedly overcome and all that he must continue to face on a daily basis, he still has love for the nation that affords him the opportunity to live as he chooses and doesn't begrudge that nation for his current situation.

I have searched endlessly for more information on Gustus and have yet to find anything related to his current situation, how he got there, or what lies ahead for him. The local Fox affiliate posted on its webpage that it received hundreds of emails and phone calls from people around the country wanting to lend a hand to Gustus. I can only hope that these wonderfully compassionate people and those in his local community are able to reach out to Gustus and do whatever they can to show this wonderful patriot the respect that he so effortlessly and brilliantly showed them and their great nation through this humble act.

Airline Loses Luggage of Israeli Security Detail; 4 Guns Missing


Airline Loses Luggage of Israeli Security Detail; 4 Guns Missing (Bags lost at JFK; turn up in LA)

American Airlines in New York lost luggage belonging to Israeli security officials traveling to the US for Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit. When the luggage was discovered in Los Angeles 4 Glock 9 mm handguns were missing.


American Airlines workers at John F. Kennedy Airport apparently lost luggage belonging to security officials for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, officials said Tuesday.

The lost suitcase -- with weapons inside -- was eventually discovered in Los Angeles. Four Glock 9 mm handguns that were in the bag are now missing and police officials say they believe they were stolen.

The bag was supposed to have been on the flight from JFK to Washington DC where additional Israeli security officers were being assigned to help with the Israeli leader's visit with President Obama at the White House.

Port Authority police at JFK are now investigating whether the guns were stolen in New York or after the errant bag arrived in Los Angeles, a PA spokesman said.

Officials said security protocols require travelers with handguns to pack the weapons and send them via checked luggage.

One source said the bag was inspected by Transportation Security Administration screeners who put a seal over the bag at Kennedy Airport, clearing the weapons for shipment to Washington.

A spokesman for the Israeli Consulate referred all calls about the lost bag and the missing handguns to American Airlines.

"When you have a situation related to security, we allow the appropriate law enforcement agencies to handle the situation and we refrain from commenting publicly, so that we don't hamper an investigation," said Tim Wagner, a spokesman for American Airlines.

American spokesman Tim Wagner declined to comment on what he called "a potential security incident." The TSA declined to comment, citing an ongoing investigation. Officials at the Israeli Embassy in Washington deferred comment to U.S. law-enforcement agencies investigating the incident and to American. A spokesman for the Port Authority police declined to comment.

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

First imo there is no way the Israeli security would turn over all their weapons, just my opinion. They know BiBi is in danger and are there to protect him. I'm just thinking that if the supposedly secure airport can't even assure foreign dignitaries that there security personnel can transport their weapons then we have a problem. The Israelis I've met don't tend to take foreign travel very lightly when it comes to the matter of security.

Why AA and not El Al? Very odd that Israeli security officials were on AA and not El Al – the most secure airline in the world – and Israel’s national carrier.

Why check weapons, wouldn’t you think people on security detail of an ally’s Prime Minister would get some sort of clearance to board with their weapons?

Wouldn’t one think AA, knowing they had security detail of a ally who’d checked a bag with weapons would have taken extra care of that bag?

This is really strange or careless of everyone.

Just saw this to add to the information:

Netanyahu flew on a chartered El Al plane

EXTRA security flew on AA, which is ridiculous. They should have flown El Al too.

According to Carl on Israel Matzav (

“There was a need for extra security for Prime Minister Netanyahu in Washington on Tuesday. So a security detail was flown down from New York on American Airlines (it may have been American Eagle from what I know of how they work). The security detail had four Glock 9mm handguns in a suitcase that was sealed with a TSA inspection sticker. I don’t know what the sticker said, but it may have advertised that there were weapons inside. Along the way, the bag with the weapons ended up in Los Angeles, and the weapons are gone.”

More Radical Communist Friends Of Obama, This One To Head Medicare & Medicaid

Barack Obama used a recess appointment today to name rationing advocate Donald Berwick to become the director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The office oversees government health care programs and that worries pro-life advocates because Berwick has praised British programs that ration care.

An excerpt from a 2008 speech by Donald Berwick, President Obama's nominee to head the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, speaking to a British audience about why he favors government-run health care.

Berwick also published an article in 2008 to warning the Brits about free market forces.

CNS News reported:

The article, published in the July 26, 2008 issue of the BMJ, compared the U.S. health care system unfavorably to the British system, which Berwick said he was “romantic about.”

The article included a list of 10 suggestions for Britain’s National Health Service (NHS). One of these suggestions was:

“Please don’t put your faith in market forces [emphasis in original]. It’s a popular idea: that Adam Smith’s invisible hand would do a better job of designing care than leaders with plans can. I find little evidence that market forces relying on consumers choosing among an array of products, with competitors fighting it out, leads to the healthcare system you want and need. In the U.S., competition is a major reason for our duplicative, supply driven, fragmented care system.”


Wild Thing'a comment.......

Just one more person to fill his communists party. All

In his speech, Berwick said that income and wealth will have to be re-distributed from the “more fortunate” to the poor, since the poor tend to be sicker, according to Berwick. In other words, another communist, just like Obama.

Obama and his administration are playing politics with every aspect of American life and society:
A justice department that won’t prosecute an obvious voting rights violation because of race;
A space agency that is planning on hitching rides with the Russians, while focusing on making ‘Muslims feel good about themselves’;
A health care bill rammed through with backroom deals that is a direct attempt to eradicate private practice and make government slaves of medical professionals, while subjecting patients to the whims and ideological biases of an academic who wasn’t even vetted by the Senate.

It goes on and on.

Obama and His Administration Protecting Black Panther Who Advocates Killing Whites and White Babies

New Black Panther Obama’s Justice Dept. Won’t Prosecute Advocated Killing “Some Crackers

Obama’s Justice Department – led by Attorney General Eric Holder – not to move forward with prosecution of New Black Panthers accused of intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 is just not defensible.

This video gives more information on one of the Panthers involved in the intimidation. It shows him in January 2009 saying he “hates” all “white people,” and calling for the killing of some white babies.


A few days ago, Megyn Kelly broke a huge story on Fox News where she interviewed former Department of Justice attorney, J. Christian Adams. Adams has blown the whistle on the Obama Administration’s DOJ for dismissing the infamous voter intimidation case against the Black Panthers, after he had already won the case (the Black Panthers never even showed up in court to answer the charges). Adams claimed that the main reason why the DOJ didn’t want to prosecute the Panthers was for racial reasons. Now, one would think that this would be an explosive story and that the mainstream media would be all over this, but instead they are like a toddler putting his fingers in his ears when he is told to eat his vegetables.

Wait–it gets better. In addition to Adams, Megyn Kelly also interviewed renowned civil rights attorney and life-long Democrat, Bartle Bull (who was Robert Kennedy’s campaign manager). Bull claimed that he witnessed the Black Panthers threatening voters and shouting racial slurs at the polling place, telling Kelly that, “Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy didn’t die so that uniformed thugs could be blocking polling places with weapons”. Not to mention, Mr. Bull also claimed that the Black Panthers were working in collusion with ACORN (you know, that lovely group that agreed to aid and abet a child prostitution ring) in order to intimidate the poll-watchers, because ACORN had registered a bunch of illegal voters.

Rush Limbaugh on the Troopathon "Standing for Our Soldiers"

Rush is supporting the Troopathon campaign to send packages to our troops.

Rush gave $300,000. Thanks Rush!

The purpose of the event is to raise funds to send care packages to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Previous Troopathon events, such as the one held last year at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, have raised a total of well over two million dollars, enabling the group to send over 168 TONS of care packages overseas.

America Hating Obama Sues To Throw Out Arizona Immigration Law

The Mexican Mafia has given a "green light" to take out Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. A "green light" indicates that the assassin given the order must complete the murder or he will be killed himself, as will his family.
"I understand this threat, yet I will not run in fear or change my support for SB1070 and my demands for President Obama to secure our border with 3,000 armed soldiers in Arizona and start building the fence again. I'm always armed and as every law enforcement member knows, we always have to be aware of our surroundings and possible threats," he said.


We've expected it for weeks, and now we have it. The DoJ has just filed suit, arguing that SB1070 "violates the supremacy clause of the Constitution".
They will seek an injunction to delay the July 29th implementation date of the law. 1070 architect Kris Kobach says the suit is 100% political and will fail in court, as the... law was "specifically crafted" to anticipate such a challenge. Regardless of the outcome, it is disgraceful that the Federal government, given stories such as Sheriff Babeau's below, is making Arizona the enemy, and defending the enemies of the rule of law.
Co-author Russell Pierce rightfully called the suit an "absolute insult to the rule of law" as well as to Arizona and its residents. It is all that and more. The die is cast. This is much bigger than Arizona now. We will punish those who have done this on November 2nd. SWA will publish detailed records on border security and amnesty of every Representative up for election this year. ANGRY? REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER. That will be the "Peoples' Injunction".

For your Reps:


Gov't sues to throw out Arizona immigration law

The Washington Post


The Obama administration sued Arizona on Tuesday to throw out the state's toughest-in-the-nation immigration law and keep other states from copying it.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Phoenix said the law, due to take effect July 29, usurps the federal government's "pre-eminent authority" under the Constitution to regulate immigration.

The move sets the stage for a high-stakes legal clash over states' rights at a time when politicians in some other states have indicated they want to follow Arizona's lead.

The legal action represents a stern denunciation of the law, which the Justice Department declared will "cause the detention and harassment of authorized visitors, immigrants and citizens who do not have or carry identification documents" while ignoring "humanitarian concerns" and harming diplomatic relations.

Supporters of the law said the lawsuit was unnecessary and blamed the federal government for neglecting problems at the border for years. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer called the complaint "a terribly bad decision" and defended the law as "reasonable and constitutional."

Other states have said they want to take similar action - a scenario the government cited as a reason for bringing the lawsuit.

"The Constitution and the federal immigration laws do not permit the development of a patchwork of state and local immigration policies throughout the country," the suit says.

The heart of the legal arguments focus on the Constitution's assertion that federal laws override state laws. The lawsuit says that comprehensive federal laws already on the books cover illegal immigration - and that those statutes take precedent.

"In our constitutional system, the federal government has pre-eminent authority to regulate immigration matters," the lawsuit says. "This authority derives from the United States Constitution and numerous acts of Congress. The nation's immigration laws reflect a careful and considered balance of national law enforcement, foreign relations, and humanitarian interests."
The lawsuit also says that the Arizona measure will impose a huge burden on U.S. agencies in charge of enforcing immigration laws, "diverting resources and attention from the dangerous aliens who the federal government targets as its top enforcement priority."

The court filing states that Arizona law is pre-empted by federal law and therefore violates the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.

The filing makes no assertion that the law is discriminatory or risks being applied in a discriminatory fashion, as the president and other officials said they feared would be the case. Interestingly, this suit makes no civil rights charges against the Arizona law.

The next step is for the case to be assigned a judge, who will decide whether to grant a preliminary injunction to temporarily block the law from taking effect.

Brewer predicted that the law would survive the federal challenge as well as pending suits previously filed by private groups and individuals.

"As a direct result of failed and inconsistent federal enforcement, Arizona is under attack from violent Mexican drug and immigrant smuggling cartels. Now, Arizona is under attack in federal court from President Obama and his Department of Justice," Brewer said. "Today's filing is nothing more than a massive waste of taxpayer funds."
State Sen. Russell Pearce, the principal sponsor of the bill co-sponsored by dozens of fellow Republican legislators, denounced the lawsuit as "absolute insult to the rule of law" as well as to Arizona and its residents.

The Mexican government welcomed the move, saying the law "affects the civil and human rights of thousands of Mexicans."


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, released a statement saying: “Suing the people of Arizona for attempting to do a job the federal government has utterly failed to execute will not help secure our borders. If the President wants to make real progress on this issue, he can do so by taking amnesty off the table and focus his efforts on border and interior security. It is long past time for this administration to prioritize solving a crisis over imposing an agenda and the first step is to recognize that attorneys and amnesty are not acceptable alternatives to border security and job creation.”


Arizona Democrats running as fast as they can away from Obama.

Arizona Dems contest Obama's assertions on border security

The Hill

Anticipating a furor of voter criticism over the July Fourth recess, Democratic lawmakers from the border region shot back at the White House last week, challenging the president’s speech on immigration in which he said that the southern border is secure.

Arizona Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Harry Mitchell and Gabrielle Giffords joined a growing Republican chorus in denouncing President Barack Obama for not pushing for more specific action in his Thursday speech on the nation’s immigration and border security issues.

Obama said that the U.S.-Mexico border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years. But the three Arizona Democrats disagreed.


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

"The Mexican government welcomed the move, saying the law "affects the civil and human rights of thousands of Mexicans."

Civil and human rights of ILLEGALS???? WTH!

The filing makes no assertion that the law is discriminatory or risks being applied in a discriminatory fashion

So the “profiling” screams from these crybabies doesn’t hold legal muster after all. Because the law is NOT discriminatory nor unconstitutional. Even if there was the slightest chance it was, wouldn’t the DOJ press it now? This vindicates SB1070.

Biden Sees Iraq Success For Obama ~ GAG! So Many Lies Joe and Iraq Knows The Truth!

Joe Biden sees Iraq success for President Obama



Vice President Joe Biden said after a three-day trip to Baghdad that the American people will see President Barack Obama’s Iraq policy as a success when the “combat mission” ends on schedule Aug. 31.

Biden said the administration “will be able to point to it and say, ‘We told you what we’re going to do, and we did it.’”

“I think America wins,” Biden told POLITICO in an end-of-trip interview at the ambassador’s residence in the sprawling U.S. Embassy complex. “I sound corny, but I think America gets credit here in the region. And I think everybody gets credit, from George Bush to [President Obama].

“I think Americans will recognize that there aren’t body counts ... that they got 95,000 people home. That will be noticeable that they’re home."

The chief purpose of Biden’s visit was to prod Iraqi politicians to form a government and end a four-month stalemate that followed parliamentary elections.

The vice president said security in the country “doesn’t really relate to whether there’s a government formed or not.”

“The government that is the interim government now — a little like our interregnum period between November and January — is actually functioning in terms of security,” he said. “I am hopeful — I am confident — that in the relatively near term, they’re going to be able to work out an agreement on ... the new government.”

Biden said he hopes a resolution will come “by the end of the summer and maybe even considerably sooner.”

But he added with a smile, “That’s like trying to decide when the Senate’s going to pass health care: They did it, but it” took a while.

Biden said improved conditions in Iraq will bolster Democrats with voters in November.

“They are going to take a look and see that the president kept his promise getting troops home, which will give them more confidence in the foreign policy he set,” Biden said.


From the video: Speaking at Camp Lejeune on February 27, 2009, Barack Obama talked about the success of our efforts in Iraq which he and the Democratic Party tried to undermine on a daily basis. It also shows what Biden and Obama said in 2007 to undermine US troops serving in Iraq. In 2007 both Barack Obama and Joe Biden continually spoke out against the Bush Surge of troops in Iraq.


...Good Grief!

Biden you POS! Obama inherited the Iraq success. He's not BSing the Iraqis. Or us either. The Iraqis named a street in Baghdad George W. Bush Boulevard.

There can’t be much arrogance or hypocrisy in the general population. The left has it ALL!! After attacking the war for years and declaring it LOST, Hussein and his buffoon VP want to claim credit for victory. Incredible isn't it!

ObamaWorld: Iraq is an Obama success and the economy is a Bush failure. It’s so clear to me now. LOL God help us, I bet even God is laughing at this one.

Obama is such a failure that these scumbags are trying to grab onto anything that they can claim as a success - but Obama had nothing whatsoever to do with Iraq.

Even if he'd wanted to (and he didn't), he simply doesn't have what it takes.

Iraq is Bush's victory. And Petraeus's. And OUR TROOPS!!!!!!!

Obama Bristles at Reporter's Question on if His "Distancing from Israel" was a Mistake

Obama bristling at a reporter’s question during a joint White House appearance with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama was asked if his policy of “distancing from Israel” and Netanyahu was “a mistake,” and contributes to others in the world feeling emboldened to bash Israel.

Obama said he rejected the “premise of the question,” and claimed there have been no “public statements” during his Presidency to support the idea that he has been “distancing from Israel.” He was clearly defensive about the issue, and did not like the question!

He Can't Resist: Obama Bashes Founders on 4th of July

He can't resist: Obama bashes Founders on the 4th of July

American Thinker

By Jeannie DeAngelis

It appears the President of the United States can't contain his disdain for America's historical roots. On Independence Day, instead of stressing the awesome concepts of the Declaration of Independence, Obama managed to turn a BBQ into an opportunity to disparage our founders, foster class warfare and further division.

On July 4th the Commander-in-Chief invited the military to a White House cookout and then used the occasion to skewer the Founding Fathers. Rather than depicting America as "one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all," once again Barack-the-great-divider separated America into factions and brought up a time in our history where, in his view, America lacked, "civil rights and voting rights, workers' rights and women's rights."

A casually dressed Obama, who couldn't make Memorial Day at Arlington Cemetery, appeared on the balcony high above the active-duty military and their families who were waving flags and wearing red, white and blue face paint. The President, with Michelle at his side, spoke to the group, saying that today may be Independence Day, but "Today we also celebrate all of you, the men and women of our armed forces, who defend this country we love."

While America focused on Cedric the Entertainer, the U.S. Marine band, Sabrett® hot dogs, Obama's short-sleeved polo shirt, and the outstanding potato salad, the thing that was the most telling about the event were Obama's sentiments when he said the following:

We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America-civil rights and voting rights, workers' rights and women's rights, and the rights of every American. And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.

Eerily comfortable on a balcony delivering a speech to the crowd below, Obama surreptitiously served up the founding fathers of this nation like shish kabob, disparaging them as merely "men of property and wealth." Then Obama, who identifies himself with a great president who freed slaves rather than made new ones, in an underhanded way elevated Abraham Lincoln above the evil white men who dared to own property and accumulate personal wealth with a simple qualifying "but."

For Obama, the "birth of freedom" at our nation's founding doesn't quite cut the hot dog mustard. Instead Barry relishes what followed: "civil rights, voting rights, workers' rights and women's rights," and hopefully soon, illegal immigrants' rights. Apparently, in the president's mind, "social justice" is what makes us "uniquely American."

Obama's words indicate a view that addendums to independence are far superior to the miracle of our nation's birth and the genius of the men who founded this nation.

It is a travesty that an ungrateful, misguided American president implied America's freedom is "a beacon to the world," merely because of women's suffrage and workers' rights.

Our nation's greatness was and is exhibited by the fact that dirt poor men like Samuel Adams and men of "wealth and property" like Thomas Jefferson believed so much in freedom that, unlike Barack Obama, of one mind and one accord America's founders put aside many differences to lay the foundation for our nation's liberty and glorious, God-given independence.

Today we also celebrate all of you, the men and women of our armed forces, who defend this country we love.

Don't keep us in suspense Obama! Which country is it that you love?

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to Block "Controversial Opinion" on the Web

TSA to Block "Controversial Opinion" on the Web

CBS news

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency's computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a "controversial opinion," according to an internal email obtained by CBS News.

The email was sent to all TSA employees from the Office of Information Technology on Friday afternoon.

It states that as of July 1, TSA employees will no longer be allowed to access five categories of websites that have been deemed "inappropriate for government access."

The categories include:

* Chat/Messaging

* Controversial opinion

* Criminal activity

* Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content

* Gaming

The email does not specify how the TSA will determine if a website expresses a "controversial opinion."

There is also no explanation as to why controversial opinions are being blocked, although the email stated that some of the restricted websites violate the Employee Responsibilities and Conduct policy.

The TSA did not return calls seeking comment by publication time.


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

Good grief. The USA is becoming a Maoist gulag is or on it's way there anyway.

This is about access from the office government computers. But private computers could be next I guess. Well then the will be blocked. Very controversial! that one is for sure, with Obama at the helm.

I guess “Controversial” is defined as anything that does not fully embrace the propaganda of the Obamaviks.

Americans are beginning to learn what tyranny is all about. And forget Constitutional rights!

Texas Principals Lose in Religious Freedom Case Involving Confiscated Candy Canes

Texas principals lose in religious freedom case involving confiscated candy canes

Jewish World Review

By Anna M. Tinsley

This week, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ruled that the principals can be liable for not letting students in 2001 and 2003 hand out their candy canes pens with descriptions as well as pencils that read, "Jesus is the reason for the season.''

"This is a big win for the First Amendment and for millions of students nationwide,'' said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Plano-based conservative Liberty Institute, which represents the families in the lawsuit.

Josh Skinner of Dallas, attorney for principals Lynn Swanson of Thomas Elementary School and Jackie Bomchill of Rasor Elementary, said he and his clients will now decide whether to appeal to the full appeals court, the U.S. Supreme Court or both.

"We think the court is wrong,'' he said, adding that keeping the principals involved in the lawsuit personally opens them up to punitive damages of tens of thousands of dollars that someday might be awarded. "The court fails to recognize the confusion that exists in the law.''

One case involved pencils that a girl tried to distribute in 2001. Another involved a third-grade boy who tried to pass out candy canes and attached cards in 2003. The lawsuit also cited other cases of students not being allowed to hand out items with religious themes.

In 2005, the Plano school district updated rules about when students can hand out religious-themed items — before and after school, at recess, at designated tables during school hours and at three annual parties.

Those rules were upheld as constitutional last year by the appeals court, but parents in the case filed an appeal. Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from the Plano parents who disagree with those rules.

In this case, though, the principals unsuccessfully sought to be pulled out of the lawsuit.

But Skinner said an appeal gives him "a good chance of explaining … how this part of the law is very confusing ... and how our clients shouldn't be held personally liable.''

Another issue in the ruling was whether elementary school students "have a First Amendment right to be free from religious-viewpoint discrimination while at school,'' according to the court document.

The judges ruled that "it has been clear for over half a century that the First Amendment protects elementary school students from religious-viewpoint discrimination.''
"This is a pretty strong ruling,'' Shackelford said. "It not only firmly establishes the First Amendment rights of students … but it says these violations are so extreme (that the judges) will hold school administrators personally liable.''

Obama Orders His NASA Chief Charles Bolden To Suck Up To Muslims Since They Don't Contribute To Space Programs

NASA Chief Charles Bolden talking to Al Jazeera in a recent interview where Bolden was asked why he was visiting the Middle East Region. Bolden said he was “excited” to be in the area, and the proceeded to give a bizarre answer that revealed that President Obama himself had charged Bolden with finding ways to help Muslims “feel good” about their historic contributions to science, math, and engineering:

NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World

FOX News

Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his "foremost" mission as the head of America's space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA's orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him

He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

“When I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA administrator — he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.”

"It is a matter of trying to reach out and get the best of all worlds, if you will, and there is much to be gained by drawing in the contributions that are possible from the Muslim (nations)," he said. He held up the International Space Station as a model, praising the contributions there from the Russians and the Chinese.

In the same interview, Bolden also said the United States, which first sent men to the moon in 1969, is no longer capable of reaching beyond low earth orbit without help from other nations.


Krauthammer on Obama's NASA Muslim Outreach Program


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

OMG , Obama personally asks the NASA Administrator to reach out to predominantly Muslim nations and help them feel good about their contributions to science. This is a priority with Muslim Obama. He needs to be president of some Muslim country NOT the USA. Obama shouldn't come near anything American.

He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

The Sand Savages are such noted rocket scientists. sheesh I wonder who will be the first to orbit the earth in a suicide vest?

Can someone please explain to me what on earth "better relations with the Muslim world" has to do with our space program?

Where do Obama and his master Soros find these horrible people. Would it be possible to freeze-dry him and blast him beyond the solar system as a sort of statement to the universe?

JFK wanted NASA to go to the moon.

Where does Obama want NASA to go?

Americans walked on the moon 41 years ago. Mooslimes ride around on donkeys to this day.

Just like the WTC is a spot where Muslims want to build a Mosque....which muslims know is the ultimate thumb in your eye....OBAMA the Muslim, now uses NASA as the ultimate thumb in the eye of America’s space program!

The mission of NASA has always been to explore space, and advance American science and technology in the process. The wonders of the Mars explorations, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the planetary probes—as well as the now-”ancient” voyages to the moon—have enriched us all!

But in the era of Barack Hussein obama, even NASA is hijacked to serve one of Hussein’s primary objectives—to sell us out to the muslims!!!!

If the muslims succeed in conquering large areas of the world, including America (which is their aim), there will be NO MORE planetary and deep-space exploration. Space will only be used for military purposes, and for such communications applications as to spread propaganda to islam’s captive populations, and to block communication from any parts of the world that remain free of islamic conquest.

Obama's misuse of NASA is yet one more sign of what his evil plans for our country really are.

Singer Ash Soular That Recorded “Obamanation" Receives Death Threats

Ash Soular recorded “Obamanation” in 2008 as a protest song. She warned Americans about slick media sensation Barack Obama.

The upside was that she got over 4,000,000 hits on the song she posted on YouTube. The downside was that she was harassed and received death threats for posting the song on YouTube.

Ash told her story recently in Las Cruces, New Mexico.


This is what Ash Soular wrote about her YouTube hit “Obamanation”:

I wanted to express how I felt about this past election, but I’m not very good at writing political blogs or particularly fond of debating. So I figured, how better to express my opinion than to write a song.
** To elaborate: This song is about how we’ve forgotten the importance of our leaders’ character. The expression, “Obamanation”, (a play on words, yes) is also meant to symbolize a reality where people vote for politicians based upon charisma, instead of the content of their character.
It’s describing a situation where we are blinded by those whose main goal is to spend more of our tax money while ignoring our values.
It reminds us that the change THEY want may not be the change that YOU want. Let them know whose change matters.


"OBAMANATION" political song by Ash Soular ........The lyrics written in 2008 are prophetic

She is talented and sweet . What a horrible thing just to sing a song and then be attacked and threatened because of it. This is America and once again we see that when it has something to do with dictator Obama there is less and less freedom of speech.

Mexico's Drug War Heats up Near Arizona Border

Very few residents dare to drive on one of the roads out of this watering-hole for migrants, fearing they will be stopped at gunpoint. They worry they will be told to turn around after their gas tanks are drained or, worse, be kidnapped or killed.

A shootout that left 21 people dead and six wounded on the road last week is the most gruesome sign that a relatively tranquil pocket of northern Mexico is quickly turning into a hotbed of drug-fueled violence on Arizona's doorstep. The violence in recent months is grist for supporters of the state's tough new law against illegal immigration, who are eager to portray the border as a lawless battlefield of smugglers both of drugs and humans.

Nogales, the main city in the region, which shares a border with the Arizona city of the same name, has had 131 murders so far this year, nearly surpassing 135 for all of 2009, according to a tally by the newspaper Diario de Sonora. That includes two heads found Thursday stuffed side by side between the bars of a cemetery fence.

The carnage still pales compared to other Mexican border cities, most notably Ciudad Juarez, which lies across from El Paso, Texas, which had 2,600 murders last year. But the increase shows that some small cattle-grazing towns near Nogales are now in the grip of drug traffickers who terrorize residents.

The violence is concentrated in a few villages in the mountainous desert area of Rio Altar, which, until recently, drew tourists for its handsome churches, its river, a tilapia-filled lake and cooler temperatures. The roads wind through mountains of mesquite trees and saguaro cactus.

That's where Thursday's pre-dawn shootout occurred, just 12 miles (19 kilometers) south of the border, on a deserted stretch between the villages of Tubutama and Saric. Eight vehicles and numerous weapons were found in what authorities described as a confrontation between rival gangs competing for drug and immigration routes into the U.S.

The windows and panels of some vehicles were painted with X's in white shoe polish, said Fernando Pompa, a police officer in Altar who visited the scene. Bullet casings littered the pavement.

The territory is disputed between Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who heads the Sinaloa cartel, and the Beltran Leyva cartel, whose leader, Arturo Beltran Leyva, was killed in a shootout last December with Mexican marines in Cuernavaca, south of Mexico City.

Locals trace the wave of violence to the arrest in February of Jose Vazquez Villagrana, nicknamed "El Jaibil," or "The Wild Boar." Vazquez, reported to be an ally of Guzman, was captured by federal police in the nearby town of Santa Ana.

Many people have fled in the last few months, said one resident whose family has longtime roots in a village near the shootings. He asked that his only his first name, Luis, be published because he fears for his safety. His relatives abandoned their homes this spring to join him in a larger city where he lives.

"This began like a cancer in the finger and now it is spreading to other parts of the body," he said. "There comes a time when the government has absolutely no control."

Luis said schools closed early this year without explanation. Soft-drink vendors and electricity meter readers refuse to come.

Tubutama, a village of about 1,500 people with no hotel, restaurant or gas station, canceled its annual town fair last month for the first time in memory. The move came after the town's comptroller and director of public works were murdered.

Journalists who cover the small villages stopped visiting several months ago, saying it is too dangerous.
"If no one puts a stop to this, these will become ghost towns," said Jose Martin Mayoral, editor of Diario del Desierto, the newspaper in Caborca.

Despite its small size, many motorists used to pass through Tubutama because it is a hub for local roads. Now they drive longer distances on a toll road.

"It's very dangerous," said Alvaro Celaya, 57, a taxi driver in Altar, which sits just outside the danger zone. "No one will take you there anymore."

Altar, a town of about 10,000 people with a yellow-domed Roman Catholic church in its central square, has been spared the violence but is only about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Tubutama. The town's economy was booming a few years ago with taxi drivers, restaurants and lodging houses that catered to migrants preparing to cross the U.S. border illegally in the Arizona desert.

Now, a scarcity of jobs because of the U.S. economic downturn is keeping illegal immigrants away, causing Altar to fall on hard times as well.

Ana Maria Velasquez, who volunteers at the church, said there used to be 50 candles on an altar to the Virgin of Guadalupe, each left by a migrant as a good-luck ritual before crossing the border. On Sunday, there was only one.

"The migrants sustained this town," said Velasquez, 29. "Now that the flow is down, we're very bad off economically."

On many afternoons, Altar police set up checkpoints to warn residents on the road to Tubutama that it is a risky trip, said Pompa, the police officer.

More than 23,000 people have been killed in Mexico's drug violence since President Felipe Calderon launched an all-out offensive on cartels in 2006.

Despite its proximity to Arizona, the increase in drug-fueled violence in this region has not spilled across the border — nor has it in El Paso or San Diego, across from Tijuana, Mexico.

Tony Estrada, the sheriff of Santa Cruz County, Arizona, said last week's shootout unnerved some people in his jurisdiction, which includes Nogales, Arizona.

"They don't want this happening in their backyard," he said. Everyone is just kind of on alert and watchful of what happened over there and hoping the violence will stop."

Estrada, echoing the view of many in Mexico's Rio Altar area, believes the violence will continue until one cartel assumes control or the warring factions broker a truce.

"These groups are battling for this area and you know it's going to continue," he said. "There's going to be retaliation for this."

But..the border’s the safest it’s been in 20 years!! Obama said so!

Obama and Supreme Court May Be On Collision Course


Obama and Supreme Court may be on collision course

Los Angeles Times

The president's agenda on healthcare and financial regulations sets the stage for a clash with the Supreme Court's conservative majority.

Reporting from Washington

The Supreme Court wrapped up its term last week after landmark decisions protecting the right to have a gun and the right of corporations to spend freely on elections. But the year's most important moment may have come on the January evening when the justices gathered at the Capitol for President Obama's State of the Union address.

They had no warning about what was coming.

Obama and his advisors had weighed how to respond to the court's ruling the week before, which gave corporations the same free-spending rights as ordinary Americans. They saw the ruling as a rash, radical move to tilt the political system toward big business as they coped with the fallout from the Wall Street collapse.

Some advisors counseled caution, but the president opted to criticize the conservative justices in the uncomfortable spotlight of national television as Senate Democrats roared their approval.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is still angered by what he saw as a highly partisan insult to the independent judiciary. The incident put a public spotlight on the deep divide between the Obama White House and the Roberts court, one that could have a profound effect in the years ahead.

The president and congressional Democrats have embarked on an ambitious drive to regulate corporations, banks, health insurers and the energy industry. But the high court, with Roberts increasingly in control, will have the final word on those regulatory laws.

Many legal experts foresee a clash between Obama's progressive agenda and the conservative court.

"Presidents with active agendas for change almost always encounter resistance in the courts," said Stanford University law professor Michael W. McConnell, a former federal appellate court judge. "It happened to [ Franklin D.] Roosevelt and it happened to Reagan. It will likely happen to Obama too."

Already, the healthcare overhaul law, Obama's signal achievement, is under attack in the courts. Republican attorneys general from 20 states have sued, insisting the law and its mandate to buy health insurance exceed Congress' power and trample on states' rights.

Two weeks ago, a federal judge in New Orleans ruled Obama had overstepped his authority by ordering a six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

On another front, the administration says it will soon go to court in Phoenix seeking to block Arizona's controversial immigration law, which is due to take effect July 29. Republican Gov. Jan Brewer said Arizona would go to the Supreme Court, if necessary, to preserve the law.

As chief justice, Roberts has steered the court on a conservative course, one that often has tilted toward business. For example, the justices have made it much harder for investors or pension funds to sue companies for stock fraud.

Two years ago, the court declared for the first time that the gun rights of individuals were protected by the Constitution. This year, the justices made clear this was a "fundamental" right that extended to cities and states as well as federal jurisdictions.

Since the arrival in 2006 of Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., Roberts has had a five-member majority skeptical of campaign funding restrictions. At first, he moved cautiously. Roberts spoke for the majority in 2007 in saying that a preelection broadcast ad sponsored by a nonprofit corporation was protected as free speech even though it criticized a candidate for office.

Last year, the court had before it another seemingly minor challenge to election laws by a group that wanted permission to sell a DVD that slammed Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was running for president in 2008. This time, however, Roberts decided on a much bolder move.

The 5-4 ruling in the Citizens United case struck down all limits on direct election spending — for giant, profit-making corporations as well as small nonprofit groups. For more than 60 years, Congress and many states had barred corporate and union spending to sway elections. The court's opinion dismissed all such laws as unconstitutional censorship.

The decision came as a "real shock to the administration and to the Democrats in Congress," said Simon Lazarus, counsel for the National Senior Citizens Law Center. "It's also caused a sea change in their thinking about the court. Before, it was all about the 'culture wars' issues, like abortion, prayer and gay rights. Afterward, they saw this new activist thrust among the conservatives as a direct threat to their legislative agenda."

The change was on full display in last week's Senate hearing on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Democrats accused the high court of judicial activism in favor of corporations — "particularly by the five Republican appointees who have steered so hard to the right," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

Republicans in the hearing targeted Obama's "tremendous expansion" of the government and argued for the court to aggressively restrain Congress and the White House. "The Supreme Court … ought to go for freedom, not more government," said Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.).

Obama chose Kagan for the court believing she could bridge the gap with some of its conservatives. Her mission is to help uphold the laws that Obama and Democrats are pushing through Congress.

During her hearing, Kagan found herself in the odd spot of defending judicial restraint before senators who usually worry aloud about sending a "judicial activist" to the court.

"Can you name for me any economic activity that the federal government cannot regulate under the commerce clause?" asked Sen. John Cornyn (R- Texas).
"I wouldn't try to," Kagan replied, emphasizing that the court has long said lawmakers have broad powers to regulate economic activity.

The high court, however, will decide whether making Americans buy health insurance amounts to economic activity.

It may be another year or two before a true challenge to the Obama agenda reaches the Supreme Court.

McConnell, the law professor, said the administration's broad set of regulatory moves made a clash almost inevitable. "It does not mean the courts are being 'political,' " he said. "It is the way the institutions are designed, to create checks and balances."


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

I think some of the other Justices were pretty ticked off during the last State Of The Union too. His disrespect for what they do and their position had to hit a nerve with many of them.

This LA Times article was targeting Roberts while kissing up to Kagan. The writer didn’t say anything about the powerful rationale used by the Roberts court in the Citizens United case. Typical biased, unbalanced liberal journalism. And GOOD because when they do this we see right through it,. I have used things like this to point out to some lefties I know how biased the media is and when it shows up like this article it makes it even easier. Heh heh so thank you LA Times.

The decision in the Citizens United case was a great decision by the Roberts court. It’s extremely important that corporations, both large and small, are able to speak freely about all candidates without any bureaucratic interference.

Obama’s “Consequence Management Response Force” Ready To Be Deployed Against Americans In October

“We Need A lot More In Our Toolbox In Order To Deal With Angry People On The Street”: Obama’s “Consequence Management Response Force” Ready To Be Deployed Against Americans In October

Source .....H/T Bonfire

Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1

Army Times

In October of this year, one month prior to the November midterm elections, a special army unit known as ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ will be ready for deployment on American soil if so ordered by the President.

The special force, which is the new name being given to the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, has been training at Fort Stewart, Georgia and is composed of 80,000 troops.

According to the Army Times,

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.

The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’

This afternoon a local radio talk show host reported that he had been in contact with a member of the military. This military source stated that the armed forces have been alerted to the strong possibility that civil unrest may occur in the United States this summer, prior to the midterm elections of 2010.

The source described this as ‘our long, hot summer of discontent’ that could be eerily reminiscent of the summer of 1968 when riots broke out in many of our largest cities.

However, the summer of 2010 could well be much worse due to the players involved. In 1968 the major players were war protesters. This time, the outrage simmering beneath the surface of American society involves a broad cross-section of the heartland, and most of them are heavily armed.

It is highly unlikely that these citizens would ever initiate armed conflict of any kind. In their view, gun rights are for self-defense–and for defense against tyrannical government, which our Founders regarded as the most dangerous force on earth.

However, it has become clear that other groups may well initiate violence in order to start an ‘incident’ that would give Obama and a rogue Congress a reason to implement martial law, confiscate the citizens’ guns, enforce curfews, and suspend all future elections until such time as it is deemed ’safe’ to proceed with human liberty as encapsulated in the right to vote.

Tea Party members, for example, have been warned in recent days that members of Andy Stern’s SEIU union and members of the organization formerly known as ACORN plan to infiltrate Tea Party gatherings in order to incite some sort of incident that could result in armed conflict.

In addition, all indications point to a humiliating defeat for the Democrats and Obama in November. Not only will the House in all likelihood transfer to Republican control, but it is increasingly possible for the Democrats to lose the Senate as well.

And there are Leftwing groups in this country that would use whatever means necessary to prevent that from happening.

ACORN has already gone underground, changing its name so as to fly beneath the radar screen. How many people will the group register to vote illegally?

And with Obama’s plan to naturalize between 10 and 20 million illegal aliens, a brand new voter base for the Democrats will be in place prior to November.

Add to this the growing unrest over continued high unemployment, the coming spike in interest rates and inflation, and the still-boiling outrage over the manner in which Obama and the Democrats shoved ObamaCare down the throats of the citizens, and all of the ingredients are present for a major F-5 tornado to sweep across the heartland.

To what extent would soldiers use deadly force during such ‘civil unrest’ should the Consequence Management Response Team be utilized? During the anti-war riots of the 1960s they killed student protesters. What about now?

The military source cited by the radio host today was asked this very question. He would merely say that the culture of the U.S. military is changing–half support Obama and the other half are dead-set against him.

His conclusion? There is no way to know for sure if they would obey an order to open fire on ordinary citizens.
***(Radio host is full of BS a great majority do not support him)***

The Cato Institute published this warning when the program was launched in its first phase in 2008 (the program has been updated and expanded since 2008). The Founders insisted that standing armies were never to be used against American citizens on our own soil, no matter what violations of this principle have occurred in the years following. In the spirit of the Patriots and of real journalists government must be questioned constantly and held to intense scrutiny in order to preserve liberty.

Consequence Management Response Force CCMRFs now training on US soil! Marial Law NorthCOM

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The United States military’s Northern Command, formed in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks, is dedicating a combat infantry team to deal with catastrophes in the U.S., including terrorist attacks and natural disasters.

The 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, which was first into Baghdad, Iraq, in 2003, started its controversial assignment Wednesday.

The First Raiders will spend 2009 as the first active-duty military unit attached to the U.S. Northern Command since it was created. They will be based in Fort Stewart, Georgia, and focus primarily on logistics and support for local police and rescue personnel, the Army says.

The plan is drawing skepticism from some observers who are concerned that the unit has been training with equipment generally used in law enforcement, including beanbag bullets, Tasers, spike strips and roadblocks.

That kind of training seems a bit out of line for the unit’s designated role as Northern Command’s CCMRF (Sea Smurf), or CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force. CBRNE stands for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive incidents.

According to Northern Command’s Web site, the CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force is a team that will ultimately number about 4,700 personnel from the different military branches that would deploy as the Department of Defense’s initial response force.

Its capabilities include search and rescue, decontamination, medical, aviation, communications and logistical support. Each CCMRF will be composed of three functional task forces — Task Force Operations, Task Force Medical and Task Force Aviation — that have individual operational focus and mission skills, the Web site says.

The Army says the unit would be deployed to help local, state or federal agencies deal with such incidents, not take the lead. The law enforcement-type training is not connected to its new mission, it says.

Use of active-duty military as a domestic police force has been severely limited since passage of the Posse Comitatus Act following the Civil War.

Bloggers are criticizing the new force, saying that because it has been training in law enforcement tactics it could be be used for domestic law enforcement.

Troops may be trained in non-lethal tactics, but they are not trained for what they may have to deal with in domestic situations, said Gene Healy, a vice president of the conservative think-tank Cato Institute.

Healy said civilian police and, if circumstances are extreme, National Guard troops under the command of state governors should keep the peace.

“Federal troops should always be a last resort, never a first responder,” he said.

Critics also point to a General Accounting Office study in 2003 that found that domestic security missions put a strain on a military stretched thin by two simultaneous wars, and that a unit’s readiness for combat is reduced if the members have to take time out to respond to an emergency at home.

The U.S. military “is not a Swiss Army knife,” ready to fight the Taliban one week, respond to a hurricane the next and put down a major political protest the third week, Healy said.

The Army says the non-lethal training is an outgrowth of missions that troops have faced around the world in recent years.

“We need a lot more in our toolbox in order to deal with angry people on the street,” said Col. Barry Johnson of U.S. Army North.

The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’

Amnesty and Cap &Trade could easily fuel civil unrest on top of high emotions at the elections. If Amnesty is put on hold we may have La Raza instigating civil disobedience who has made it clear in the past their street soldiers are mixed in with gangs such as the MS13′s and Brown Berets. Good citizens out number these gangs and when Americans get mad look out. I am more concerned with social collapse than our Military people.


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

Obama just keeps destroying this country, not bothering to worry about the consequences at the polls. When this happened to Slick Willie Clinton, he moved to the center. Obama just keeps digging us into a permanent grave. I wouldn't be surprised if we never have another real election.

I will never forget that Obama did this, and it showed us he will do whatever it takes.

Muslims in Europe Feeling the Heat

Logans Warning

"Finally Europe is starting to wake up to the threat of Islam, and Muslims are starting to feel the heat. Hopefully this is just the beginning, and the end to Muslim immigration is on the horizon. But once again, we see Muslims uniting to fight our movement. This is a video update to the, “UK: Demonstration to Defend the Symbols of Islam” story. "


Muslim Demographics


Wild Thing's comment......

It’s about frigging time the Euros started to wake up about the threat that extremist and radical Muslims pose.

BUT please do not come here to our country. And dang you just know Obama will invite these freaks.

It may be worse here. At least the euros do not elect Muslims to RULE them.

Obama Really Has No Clue About America and Being An American

Obama and his wife speaking from the balcony like a South American dictator!

Obama celebrates July 4th at White House barbecue


Calling the Declaration of Independence more than words on an aging parchment, President Barack Obama marked the Fourth of July on Sunday by urging Americans to live the principles that founded the nation as well as celebrate them.

“This is the day when we celebrate the very essence of America and the spirit that has defined us as a people and as a nation for more than two centuries,” Obama told guests at a South Lawn barbecue honoring service members and their families.
“We celebrate the principles that are timeless, tenets first declared by men of property and wealth but which gave rise to what Lincoln called a new birth of freedom in America—civil rights and voting rights, workers’ rights and women’s rights, and the rights of every American,” he said. “And on this day that is uniquely American we are reminded that our Declaration, our example, made us a beacon to the world.”


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

"Independence Day about civil rights, voting rights, workers’ rights, women’s rights..”

Silly me - all this time, I’d thought it was about ‘inalienable rights’....

Obama has no idea what Independence Day is all about.

RNC Chair Michael Steele RESIGN NOW!

South Carolina GOP Sen. Jim DeMint appearing on Fox News Sunday today said that comments made by RNC Chairman Michael Steele in calling the War in Afghanistan a “War of Obama’s Choosing,” were “unacceptable” and “careless,” and simply not “accurate.” DeMint said Steele needs to “apologize to our military.”

As for whether Steele should resign, DeMint said that is “up to other people.” But DeMint said he hoped Steele would focus on the November Midterm elections, and the need to return Congress to a Republican majority.


Liz Cheney calls for Steele to step down Steele's comments "deeply disappointing and wrong."

Liz Cheney, daughter of the former vice president, chairman of Keep America Safe, and an increasingly prominent voice in national security politics, has released a statement calling for Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele to resign:

RNC Chairman Michael Steele’s comments about the war in Afghanistan were deeply disappointing and wrong. The chairman of the Republican party must be unwavering in his support for American victory in the war on terror — a victory that cannot be accomplished if we do not prevail in Afghanistan. I endorse fully Bill Kristol’s letter to Chairman Steele. It is time for Chairman Steele to step down.


Rev. Peterson: 'Michael Steele is a RINO'

Rev.Peterson website

April 23, 2010

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Founder and President of BOND Action, blasted RNC Chairman Michael Steele for his latest remarks that blacks don't have a reason to vote Republican. Steele also told 200 DePaul University students listening to his address on Tuesday that the Republicans walked away from blacks and that their strategy over the last 40 years to attract Southern white males has alienated minorities.

"Michael Steele is a RINO (Republican In Name Only) -- he's dividing the party and hurting recruitment efforts," said Rev. Peterson. "Since January I have called for the GOP to fire Steele because he cannot be trusted to lead the party to victory. I'm hoping that party leaders will finally get over their fear of being called racists and dump him before it's too late."


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

I have really had it with Michael Steele, enough is enough. Each time he mouths off and says something else it takes longer each time to clean up his mess.

Amd regarding Michael's comments about blacks and the Republican party. Michael, you need to resign. Not only is that utterly insulting, it is arrogantly WRONG! The R party is the single BEST way, conservatives at least, of allowing for the opportunities for ALL Americans to make something of themselves, whatever it is they want to do. Pursuit of happiness is alive and well, but NOT in the D party. And the sooner you wake up to that fact, Michael, the better for ALL Americans.

Happy July 4th! Happy Birthday AMERICA!


The Declaration of Independence In Congress, July 4, 1776

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain Inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

We owe the generation that gave us the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Yorktown. We owe all previous generations that have served our country our Veterans one and all for keeping those freedoms and building a mighty nation. ~ Wild Thing

A Poem Worth Reading

A Poem Worth Reading

He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Bob has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Soldier died today.

He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians/news reporter
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier--
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

Pass On The Patriotism!
YOU can make the difference.

We The People! ~This is a fantstic video!!!



“We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country. You claim you have not heard us.

“We The People” have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty. You claim you have not seen us.

Since you have not acknowledged our message, let us here present it once more for if as President Wilson said, “a leader’s ear must ring with the voices of the people,” the time has come.

Our greatest treasure is freedom – the absence of restraints on our ability to think and to act. The corollary of freedom is individual responsibility. We believe in the power of the individual.

A few years ago President Bush said, “History moves toward freedom because the desire for freedom is written in every human heart.” Let us add that we will preserve it only as long as devotion to freedom is expressed in the heart of our actions.

When President Lincoln dedicated Gettysburg National Cemetery he declared, “It is for us the living to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced.”

That unfinished cause for which our soldiers willingly go to battle and for which so many have given their lives is a free United States of America. It has been nearly one hundred fifty years and the work President Lincoln spoke of is not finished. In fact, that work will never be finished.

Freedom is the capacity of self-determination. It is not an entity but a condition and conditions change. Freedom can expand, yet so can it contract.

You promised change when you took office, Mr. President, but subjugation is not change we wanted or will accept.

You have expanded government, violated our Constitution, confounded laws, seized private industry, destroyed jobs, perverted our economy, curtailed free speech, corrupted our currency, weakened our national security, and endangered our sovereignty.

By compromising our nation’s cultural, legal and economic institutions, you are ensuring that our children will never achieve the same quality of life as we enjoy today. Through generational theft you are robbing the unborn of opportunity.

This is not acceptable. Not in America. We did not become a strong nation through hope but rather through self-reliance.

No one better understands the relationship between individual achievement, dignity and strength than our armed forces. Through every war our soldiers have held this nation’s destiny in their hands. They have not failed us. They cherish freedom enough that they are willing to die for it.

Our duty to them and to ourselves is to treasure freedom enough to live up to it.

We accept the challenge, Mr. President. That is why we are assembling across the land to deliver our message to you as often and in every way we can. Dismiss us at your political peril.

Our great nation is a Republic. We will not accept tyranny under any guise. Your policy to redistribute the fruits of our labor is Statism and will not be tolerated.

By our honor, Mr. President, we vow forever to resist coercive government in America. Patriots will not stand silent as you attempt to dismantle the greatest nation on earth. “We The People” will defend our liberty. We will protect our beloved country and America’s exceptionalism will prevail.

God Bless the United States of America!

RNC Chairman Michael Steele Opposing the Troops in Afghanistan

Michael Steele speaking at an RNC fundraising event in Noank, Connecticut, where he actually said that the War in Afghanistan is a “War of Obama’s choosing.”

The audio is difficult to hear, so here is a transcript of the key portion of what Steele said:

Transcript via YouTube posting of video:

“The [General] McChrystal incident, to me, was very comical. I think it’s a reflection of the frustration that a lot of our military leaders has with this Administration and their prosecution of the war in Afghanistan. Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama’s choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in. It was one of those areas of the total board of foreign policy [that was at least?] that we would be in the background sort of shaping the changes that were necessary in Afghanistan as opposed to directly engaging troops. But it was the President who was trying to be cute by half by flipping a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should in Afghanistan. Well, if he is such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that’s the one thing you don’t do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan? Alright, because everyone who has tried over a thousand years of history has failed, and there are reasons for that. There are other ways to engage in Afghanistan…”

Bill Kristol has pointed out that what Steele says here is absolutely false, and he has called on Steele to resign in the wake of this:

The Weekly Standard: Needless to say, the war in Afghanistan was not “a war of Obama’s choosing.” It has been prosecuted by the United States under Presidents Bush and Obama. Republicans have consistently supported the effort. Indeed, as the DNC Communications Director (of all people) has said, your statement “puts [you] at odds with about 100 percent of the Republican Party.” .

Obama can be criticized for a lot of things, but the War in Afghanistan is not a “war of Obama’s choosing.” We moved into Afghanistan just months after the September 11, 2001 attacks that killed 3,000 of our citizens. We did it to go after Al-Qaeda for planning and carrying out the attacks, and The Taliban for harboring and assisting them. That is exactly what we should have done, and we now need to finish the job. The last thing our men and women in uniform need is a leader of the Republican Party who is publicly saying we cannot win there, and questioning the necessity of their mission there. It is time for Michael Steele to resign.

RHINO Dem Lite Lindsey Graham: Tea party will 'die out'


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says in a forthcoming article that the tea party movement is “unsustainable” and will “die out” because it lacks vision.

Graham made the comments to The New York Times as part of a profile in Sunday’s magazine written by Robert Draper.
Graham argues throughout the story that the Republican Party will eventually move away from the fringe and join him closer to the political middle but that, for now, it has shifted too far to the right.
“Everything I’m doing now in terms of talking about climate, talking about immigration, talking about Gitmo is completely opposite of where the tea party movement’s at,” Graham says. “The problem with the tea party, I think, is it’s just unsustainable because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country. It will die out.”
Graham later says that the GOP has shifted so far that Ronald Reagan would have trouble getting elected in today’s party.

“We don’t have a lot of Reagan-type leaders in our party. Remember Ronald Reagan Democrats? I want a Republican that can attract Democrats,” Graham told the Times

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

Boehner: "Why aren't you focused on stopping the oil spill in the Gulf and getting the Gulf cleaned up?"

President Obama: "The second thing we've got to do is make sure that we've got regulations in place so that people don't get tricked into buying homes that they can't afford again."

Boehner: "Why aren't you focused on reforming Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?"

President Obama: "The debt is getting bigger, the deficit is getting bigger. How do we get government spending under control?"

Obama: Being An American Not A Matter Of "Blood Or Birth"

“Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith,” President Obama declared at a speech he gave on immigration.

Obama also blamed “resentment” to new immigrants to poor economic conditions.

“Now, we can’t forget that this process of immigration and eventual inclusion has often been painful. Each new wave of immigrants has generated fear and resentment towards newcomers, particularly in times of economic upheaval,” Obama said.

Obama's Big Oil Bungle by Dick Morris


by Dick Morris

It's one thing to say that Obama's administration showed ineptitude and mismanagement in its handling of the Gulf oil spill. It is quite another to grasp the situation up close, as I did during a recent visit to Alabama.

According to state disaster relief officials, Alabama conceived a plan -- early on -- to erect huge booms offshore to shield the approximately 200 miles of the state's coastline from oil. Rather than install the relatively light and shallow booms in use elsewhere, the state (with assistance from the Coast Guard) canvassed the world and located enough huge, heavy booms -- some weighing tons and seven meters high -- to guard their coast. sooner were the booms in place than the Coast Guard, perhaps under pressure from the public comments of James Carville, uprooted them and moved them to guard the Louisiana coastline instead.

So Alabama decided on a backup plan. It would buy snare booms to catch the oil as it began to wash up on the beaches.

But...the Fish and Wildlife Administration vetoed the plan, saying it would endanger sea turtles that nest on the beaches.

So Alabama -- ever resourceful -- decided to hire 400 workers to patrol the beaches in person, scooping up oil that had washed ashore.

But...OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) refused to allow them to work more than 20 minutes out of every hour and required an hourlong break after 40 minutes of work, so the cleanup proceeded at a very slow pace.

The short answer is that every agency -- each with its own particular bureaucratic agenda -- was able to veto each aspect of any plan to fight the spill, with the unintended consequence that nothing stopped the oil from destroying hundreds of miles of wetlands, habitats, beaches, fisheries and recreational facilities.

Where was the president? Why did he not intervene in these and countless other bureaucratic controversies to force a focus on the oil, not on the turtles and other incidental concerns?

According to Alabama Gov. Bob Riley, the administration's "lack of ability has become transparent" in its handling of the oil spill. He notes that one stellar exception has been Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, without whom, he says, nothing whatever would have gotten done.

Eventually, the state stopped listening to federal agencies and just has gone ahead and given funds directly to the local folks fighting the spill rather than paying attention to the directives of the Unified Command. Apparently, there is a world of difference between the competence of the Coast Guard and the superb and efficient regular Navy and military.

Now the greatest crisis of all looms on the horizon as hurricanes sweep into the Gulf. Should one hit offshore, it will destroy all the booms that have been placed to stop the oil from reaching shore. And there are no more booms anywhere in the world, according to Alabama disaster relief officials. "There is no more inventory of booms anywhere on earth," one told me in despair.

The political impact of this incompetence has only just begun to be felt. While administration operatives are flying high after a week in which the president's ratings rebounded to 49 percent, per Rasmussen, after his firing of Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the oil is still gushing and the situation is about to worsen.

The obvious fact is that Obama has no executive experience, nor do any of his top advisers. Without a clear mandate from the top, needed efforts to salvage the situation are repeatedly stymied by well-meaning bureaucrats strictly following the letter of their agency policy and federal law. The result, ironically, of their determined efforts to protect the environment has been the greatest environmental disaster in history. But some turtles are OK!


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

This is really excellent and gives a lot more information that we have heard from the media. I saw Morris mention about OSHA the other night on TV and was hoping he would writei an article about what he was saying.

This whole thing is such a mess and a lot of it government needs to stop messing with State authorities wanting to get things done.

Obama once again giving the middle finger salute to his political opposition. This time, he saluted House Minority Leader John Boehner. You see him first scratch his temple with his index finger when he mentions the other party, but seconds later, when he mentions Boehner, he scratches again using his middle finger.


Boehner: President Obama Should Quit Whining, Focus On Jobs & The Country

GOP House Minority Leader John Boehner firing back at President Obama’s attack on him during a speech Obama gave in Racine, Wisconsin. Boehner pointed out that Obama was attacking him in a city with “14% unemployment.” Bohener said it is clear that Obama’s massive stimulus plan has not worked.

Boehner said Obama’s 2300-page Financial Regulation Bill will not fix the problems on Wall Street, noting that it does not even address Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – which were at the heart of the economic meltdown.

Mike Pence and John Boehner on Obama's Financial “Reform:" and His KILLING Jobs

Pence: Financial “Reform” Bill Will Kill Jobs, Raise Taxes, Make Bailouts Permanent

Mike is on the House floor telling us all the negatives of H.R.4173, the Restoring American Financial Stability Act, AKA Wall Street Reform:

Rep. Pence tells the members of Congress at a time of economic duress, with millions out of work and failed economic policies it is ironic that a bill with the words “financial stability” in it will do anything but create financial stability.

He tells us people are not looking to Washington D.C. for more taxes, spending and bailouts. They are looking to Washington D.C. for creating jobs, to set their partisan differences and big government agendas aside, and to put together something that will put Americans back to work. Pence tells us this bill will kill jobs, raise taxes and make bailouts permanent. According to Pence this bill will:

■Kill jobs by restricting access to credit.
■Kill jobs by raising taxes on those who would provide loans and opportunities to small businesses and farmers.
■Makes the “bad ideas” of the Wall Street bailout permanent.

The freedom to succeed must also include the freedom to fail. And personal responsibility must be a part of that. This bill codifies the idea of “too big to fail,” allows the government to pick “winners and losers” and the Treasury will have authority to decide which creditors to pay back and when they’ll get paid.Yes to traditional bankruptcy, and no! to bailouts. We’re here to protect taxpayers, not Wall Street.

Gen. David Petraeus To Senate Hearing: "Training Afghans During Insurgency Like “Building Advanced Aircraft While in Flight”

Gen. David Petraeus told a Senate Hearing yesterday that “it will be years” before Afghan Forces can fully take over the fight against The Taliban in Afghanistan.

Petraeus provided a striking analogy for what we are trying to do in Afghanistan:

“Indeed, trying to train and equip host nation forces in the midst of an insurgency is akin to building an advanced aircraft while it is in flight, while it is being designed, and while it is being shot at.”


Family of Fallen Soldier Petitions Top General for War Policy Changes (Petraeus Responds ASAP)

Details of the fallen soldier's parents' exchange with Gen. Petraeus here.

The father of a slain local soldier has taken public a message about the war's rules of engagement.

William Osborn, the father of Spc. Benjamin Osborn, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 15, sent a letter to Gen. David Petraeus on Sunday asking him to change rules which he said tie soldiers' hands.

"Our son, SPC 4 Benjamin D. Osborn, volunteered to man the one heavy gun his unit had mounted on top of an MRAP vehicle," the e-mail states. "Finally, ordered to fire, Ben was able to get off 10 rounds before falling silent."

Four minutes after Osborn sent the e-mail, Petraeus responded with condolences for the parents and asked them to listen to remarks he'll make at a Senate confirmation hearing at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, where he planned to address the issue.


On Monday morning, William Osborn appeared on the Fox News cable channel to deliver the same message and said troops need to be empowered to use force when they deem it necessary.

The current rules of engagement call for firing only after being fired upon, Osborn said, and that rule is what led to the death of his son.


Cyndie Wade, a friend of the Osborn family who said a contact she knows helped Osborn get on the national cable network, sent an e-mail to NBC on Monday and said she is working to get the parents to appear on MSNBC and the Today Show.

"For whatever reason, my feelings seem to have caught on with some people," Osborn said. "It's too late for my son, but if this could help the men and women out there now, this is Ben's legacy. It's about Ben and the men that he fought with over there. They just deserve a lot better than what they're getting."

E-mail by Mr. & Mrs. Osborne to Gen. Petraeus:

Our son, SPC 4 Benjamin D. Osborn was killed in action June 15, 2010 in Kunar Province Afghanistan, on a mission. On that day, his unit of 20 was ambushed, coming under heavy fire from a Taliban force of between 70 to 100 strong. Due to the "Rules of Engagement," our soldiers could not return fire to protect themselves until ordered to do so.

Our son, SPC 4 Benjamin D. Osborn volunteered to man the one heavy gun his unit had mounted on top of an MRAP vehicle. Finally, ordered to fire, Ben was able to get off 10 rounds before falling silent.

This illustrates to us that there is a very basic flaw in our "Rules of Engagement." We believe that it led to the demise of our son, SPC 4 Benjamin D. Osborn and other warriors like him. We have the greatest fighting force in the world with the most technologically advanced weapons known to man. We spend enormous resources to teach, train and prepare our fighting men and women for battle; then send them out with one hand tied behind their backs.

It appears that our current administration is anti-military because of the limits placed on field personnel. The "Rules of Engagement" are such that we allow our enemies one break after another: we can not fire unless fired upon, if enemy combatants are around civilians we must retreat, before we can enter buildings we must consult with Afghan National Security Forces. Such "Rules of Engagement" allow these terrorists to escape to come back stronger and fight another day.


Immediate reply by Gen. David Petraeus:


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Osborn, please accept my condolences on the loss of your son.

And please listen to my opening statement at the confirmation hearing on Tuesday morning at 0930. I will address the ROE issue. I will note that commanders have a moral imperative to ensure that we provide every possible element of support to our troopers when they get into a tight spot. And I will ensure that we meet that imperative if I am confirmed to command ISAF in Afghanistan.

Sincerely, and with sympathy

- General Dave Petraeus


Petraeus Confirmed By Senate as Commander in Afghanistan, 99-0

The Senate voted unanimously Wednesday to confirm Gen. David Petraeus as the commander of American forces in Afghanistan.

Petraeus — heralded for his time as commander of operations in Iraq — leaves his post as the head of U.S. Central Command and is expected to be in Kabul as soon as Friday.

Petraeus Gives Shout-Out to B-1B Lancer Fleet

Defense Tech

Last week, we wrote that the Air Force Council, the blue suiters board of directors that advises the air chief, was considering deep cuts to force structure to meet aggressive savings targets laid out by Defense Secretary Robert Gates. One option they are reportedly considering is early retirement of all 66 B-1B Lancer bombers, last delivered in the late 1980s.

Yesterday, the Lancer fleet got a hearty shout-out from new installed Afghan commander Gen. David Petraeus. “It is a great platform,” he told senators at his confirmation hearing. “It carries a heck of a lot of bombs… and it has very good intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.”
It can loiter for long periods of time in a combat-air patrol, using its Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod which contains a laser designator, 3rd Gen. FLIR and digital cameras that function well both day and night to search out insurgent movements or IED emplacers. “It is almost like having another unmanned aerial vehicle in terms of full motion video and so forth,” he said.
“So it’s not just a case of a very, very capable bomber just boring holes in the sky waiting to open the bomb-bay doors, it is also the case of a platform that’s very capable even as it is just flying around in circles.”


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

Petraeus talking about ROEs now. Says he will “look very hard” at the complaints from troopers. Says he has talked with Karzai and other Afghan leaders on the past few days about need to bring full fight to the enemy. Says we still need to minimize civilian casualties and collateral damage. That’s about all he said on that.

99-0. Robert Byrd had a prior engagement and did not vote.

Democrats USE Oil Spill To Control House Republicans

Oil spill visits get partisan


Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) wanted to fly 10 lawmakers down to the Gulf of Mexico to see the damage caused by BP’s gigantic oil spill first hand.

House Democrats said no.

Republicans want to be able to take trips using their office spending allowance. But Democrats have heard from the Department of Homeland Security, which has asked that Congress organize trips through committees of jurisdiction, to avoid having to cater to a ton of individual lawmakers in a disaster zone, Democratic aides say. GOP leaders say they’ve heard nothing of this.

Scalise, who has already been to the Gulf on another codel, wants to organize a trip so lawmakers can fully grasp the impact before they vote on oil drilling regulations. And he doesn't want to do it through a committee, because the members don't fit neatly into specific panels — they stretch across committee, and even partisan, lines.

About two weeks ago, Scalise requested to be able to use his Members Representational Allowance – a fund typically reserved for office expenses and travel back to the district – to go to the Gulf with a group of about 10 other lawmakers.

He sought permission from the House Administration committee, which regulates office account spending and would have to approve the trip. After a few weeks, Scalise was ping-ponged between several committees. Eventually, John Lawrence, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) chief of staff, told Scalise’s chief that “it was unlikely that the request would be granted” by the House Administration Committee.

Unless there is some extraordinary reason to prohibit this trip – which has yet to be communicated to us – this is an unacceptable departure from past practices,” said Rep, Dan Lungren of California, the top Republican on the administration committee. “This is an educational trip for members using their own representational budgets to see, first-hand, the devastating impact of the Gulf spill. Our travel regulations permit this type of travel in support of our official representational duties, and unfortunately, this disaster is already having environmental and economical implications for the entire country – not just those districts represented by Members sitting on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.”

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

Even if they went and did this anyway, they CANNOT, however, FLY OVER without specific permission.


Homeland security is becoming every fascists dream agency.

Remember how the Democrats kept Republicans out of meetings abouit obamacare and did it with a locked room and security guards to keep them out. So this is more of that control freak BS from the left.

They don’t give a damn about good government. Like Communists, they care about the good of the party over the people.

The Democrat regime is nothing but a mob of jackbooted thugs goosestepping for their gangsta prez. The worse this disaster gets, the better it is for their agenda.

"It’s Bush’s Fault" by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

It’s Bush’s Fault

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Before beginning, in the last essay, titled “Useful Idiots, Freedom’s Enemy” I made a comparison between Alex Haley’s “Roots” to the larger context of U.S. Americans having a need to know and understand this Nation’s roots. A number of readers reminded me that Haley’s book, although portrayed as an authentic investigation was a work of fiction mixed with its own version of reality. They are right and I was wrong for not making that distinction clear and I appreciate having the issue called to my attention.

That noted, the following are a number of reflections and some logically founded conjecture and opinions about Obama’s “most transparent administration in history.” It is intended as both informative and entertaining even though some of the conjecture might well be accurate.

“Hope and Change!” “We need it because it’s Bush’s fault.” “Yes, we can!” “Rahm, call Blago for me, you know what to do. Right. Yes, I want Valerie for the Illinois U.S. Senate seat I vacated; just make sure I have deniability.” “Law, what law? Everybody makes deals like Sestak, Valerie and Romanoff;” golf, basketball, smoke.
Smoke, golf; trillion dollar stimulus, “needed because of Bush’s tax breaks for the rich;” smoke, golf, smoke, golf, golf, “Why not Valerie?” “He wants what? Cabinet appointment?! We’d better cool it Rahm.” Smoke, look pensive. Four hundred billion omnibus spending bill, “necessary because it was Bush’s fault;” smoke, golf, smoke, golf, golf, golf, act cool. W.A.T., otherwise known as the “World apology tour,” “all because of Bush’s go it alone policy;” golf, smoke, basketball, golf, smoke, golf, basketball, golf, golf, smoke; “Bush alienated the world.” Act humble. Smoke. Air Force One over Manhattan for photo op, “the girls’ joyride has gone too far;” smoke, golf, smoke, “besides, it was Bush’s fault.” Act cool, golf.
“No more War on Terror there are only angry jihadists because we used to support Israel. We don’t want to offend Muslims, let’s call it ‘Overseas Contingency Operation;’” “the 9-11 attacks were Bush’s fault, the ‘green jobs’ Czar said the attacks were an inside job;” party, golf, party, sneak a smoke, golf, basketball, golf, party.
“Rahm, cram through universal health bill, begin raising taxes right away, hold off on benefits until 2014, raise taxes on the middle class; huh? What are you saying, I promised not to raise taxes?” “We have to raise taxes, our spending is unsustainable,” “we need another stimulus,” “we’re out of money.” “Very difficult choices ahead on deficits.” “We definitely need another stimulus.” “What? The North Koreans want how many trillions? That’s a great crisis. We can use it as an opportunity to push the Congress to pass ‘Cap and Trade’ so we can raise taxes some more to pay them. Yes, and to help with Obama care and even cover some of my other deficit spending; also, let’s put some strong arm on BP for more money.” Golf, party, smoke, basketball.
“By the way, Rahm, I want the power to pull the internet plug on anyone who opposes what I am doing to America.” “How are we doing at the Blago trial? What? That S.O.B. is doing what? Pointing fingers my direction? I thought I told him I wouldn’t stand for that!" This one must be Cheney’s fault. Golf, basketball, smoke, snort.
Increase National Debt Limit to 13 trillion dollars, “it’s Bush’s fault for giving tax breaks to the rich;” basketball, golf, smoke, party, golf.
“I need to clear my mind,” “that’s Bush’s fault too;” sneak a smoke, golf, golf, basketball, party, give media the slip; golf, party, swat a fly during interview, act cool; Declare the U.S. is not a Christian nation then declare that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim nations in the world. Ignore Netanyahu but roll out the red carpet for Hamas; “Rahm get me four hundred million for Gaza to arm themselves against the Israeli aggressors, oh? You’re a Jew?

Former DOJ Attorney Makes Explosive Accusations

. CHRISTIAN ADAMS, FORMER JUSTIC DEPARTMENT LAWYER: Well, people were standing in front of the polls with weapons in Philadelphia on the day that President Obama was elected in 2008. The Justice Department brought a case in January under the voter intimidation statutes against the New Black Panther Party, the individuals who organized the deployment and the folks with the weapons in Philadelphia at the polls.

MEGYN KELLY, "AMERICA LIVE" HOST: Ok, and so the guy we see banging the baton, he was one defendant. The guy next to him who was said to have been saying intimidating things, he was a defendant. The New Black Panther Party was a defendant and the head of it was a defendant.

ADAMS: That’s right, all four.

KELLY: Ok, and what was basically the heart of the case against them.

ADAMS: Yeah, this 1965 Voting Rights Act protects voters from voter intimidation. You’re supposed to be able to go vote without somebody with a weapon shouting racial slurs at you like these folks were doing in Philadelphia.

KELLY: What were they saying?

ADAMS: Well, they said, “You’re about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker”. They called people “white devils”. They menaced, they tapped their baton. They tried to stop people from entering the polls.

KELLY: Is there any question in your mind that that violates the law.

ADAMS: No, nor anybody that worked on the case. It’s the easiest case I ever had at the Justice Department. It doesn’t get any easier than this. If this doesn’t constitute voter intimidation, nothing will.

KELLY: And you had, you had not just that video tape, which we’ve all now seen, but you had witness testimony from some credible witnesses who were there.


Former Justice Department Lawyer Accuses Holder of Dropping New Black Panther Case for Racial Reasons

FOX news

A former Justice Department attorney who quit his job to protest the Obama administration's handling of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons.

J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia and a conservative blogger, says he and the other Justice Department lawyers working on the case were ordered to dismiss it.

"I mean we were told, 'Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,'" Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

Asked about the Justice Department's claim that they are career attorneys, not political appointees, Adams said "obviously, that's false."

"Under the vacancy reform act, they were serving in a political capacity," he said. "This is one of the examples of Congress not being told the truth, the American people not being told the truth about this case. It's one of the other examples in this case where the truth simply is becoming another victim of the process."

Adams claimed an unnamed political appointee said if somebody wants to bring these kinds of cases, "that' not going to de done out of the civil rights division."

Adams also accused Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez of lying under oath to Congress about the circumstances surrounding the decision to drop the probe.

The Justice Department has defended its move to drop the case, saying it obtained an injunction against one member to keep him away from polling stations while dismissing charges against the others "based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law."

But Adams told Fox News that politics and race was at play in the dismissal.
"There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases," Adams told Fox News' Megyn Kelly.

Adams says the dismissal is a symptom of the Obama administration's reverse racism and that the Justice

Department will not pursue voting rights cases against white victims.

"In voting, that will be the case over the next few years, there's no doubt about it," he said.
In an opinion article published in the Washington Times last week, Adams said the dismissal "raises serious questions about the department's enforcement neutrality in upcoming midterm elections and the subsequent 2012 presidential election."


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

Megan did an excellent interview. Megan Kelly will have another interview on tomorrow. The guilty in the Holder Justice Department should be prosecuted for dropping this.

I have always been amazed that this scandal has not caught fire and burned those involved who were so blatantly involved in racial intimidation, judicial malpractice, and a massive cover up by Eric Holder and Obama's underlings.
