End of Discussion

Interesting................Once again the media declares end of discussion and that is that.

Obama birth certificate no doubt genuine

It didn’t take long for some of President Obama’s doubters to claim the long-awaited birth certificate posted online by the White House on Wednesday had been altered or might be a fake.

But a leading software expert says there’s no doubt about its authenticity, and he dismisses claims of fraud as flat-out wrong.

The doubters have latched onto the idea that Adobe Illustrator — the premier program for computer graphic artists — “reveals” evidence of document manipulation in the Obama birth certificate. They note Illustrator reveals nine separate layers of the document, and claim it’s “proof” the file has been altered.

But that’s not so, says Jean-Claude Tremblay, a leading software trainer and Adobe-certified expert, who has years of experience working with and teaching Adobe Illustrator.

“You should not be so suspicious about this,” Tremblay told, dismissing the allegations.

So, several people who also seem to have some level of expertise concerning Adobe illustrator and who have subsequently posted and demonstrated their concerns about the document on youtube? Well they have been trumped (pun intended) by one so called software expert and absolute final opinion on the matter. A media approved expert who simply asserts his findings absent any proof of his own to support his contentions and that is end of story.

Such is the way stories like these are handled by mainstream media in America. Where all manner of triangulated evidence is required to support unpopular contentions in the media? Those stories that find favor can simply assert their contentions and the media immediately accepts that version and slaps a title of expert on the preferred 'truth giver' and that is the end of that.

As I said earlier this week when the news first broke concerning the release of Obama's birth certificate, no, this isn't the end of it. Not by a long shot. But it is the end as far as the media is concerned. Just think, if these same people had of been involved in 'journalism' back in 1972? Richard Nixon would have completed his second term and Monica's blue dress would have found it's way to a yard sale by the mid 90's.

Maybe the recent revelations of Superman comics is spot on after all. Maybe there is no longer any room for truth, justice or the American way in this country and we should just get on with accepting that.

The media's left coast branch calls out Obama's White House

In the midst of this weeks tragic tornado deaths, the report of what happened last week in San Francisco to the president and the White House reaction to the reporting of a woman with the San Francisco Chronicle have for the most part been ignored and gone unreported.

Now that there is some open space at the weekend for other news stories, the Chronicle is pushing back and in fact calling out the White House on their lies.

Sadly, we expected the White House to respond in this manner based on our experiences yesterday. It is not a truthful response. It follows a day of off-the-record exchanges with key people in the White House communications office who told us they would remove our reporter, then threatened retaliation to Chronicle and Hearst reporters if we reported on the ban, and then recanted to say our reporter might not be removed after all.

The Chronicle's report is accurate.

If the White House has indeed decided not to ban our reporter, we would like an on-the-record notice that she will remain the San Francisco print pool reporter.

I was on some of those calls and can confirm Ward's statement.

Messy ball now firmly in White House court.

If you are familiar with the original story, this is certrainly and interesting turn of events. If you aren't familiar with the story, Go Here and read the entire piece.

The really interesting part of the entire affair? The San Francisco Chronicle is one of the more (most) liberal organs in the nation. And this is the way they were treated by this white house? Yeah, they are pissed and they are letting people hear about it. They should. This incident just goes to demonstrate the utter lack of respect this administration has for the truth and the manner in which they attempt to control media through access and intimidation.

Maybe one day? The leftist media in this country will wake up and return to the balanced values that they should have been employing all along. And maybe one day? Unicorns and flying pigs will come out of hiding and join the rest of the world in their praise.

By the way, this is the cell phone video the reporter posted and was spanked by the white house over.

And the official White House press Secretary version:

“The San Francisco Chronicle violated the coverage rules that they — and every other media outlet — agreed to as part of joining the press pool for that event. If they thought the rules were too restrictive they should have raised that at the beginning,” White House press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement. “However, no reporters have been banned from covering future presidential events and the White House of course would have no problem including any reporter who follows the rules in pool-only events.”

A Hero Comes Home

A Note from The Virtual Wall

03 Nov 1969 SSGT William T. Brown , SST Gunther Wald, SP4 Donald Shue, and six Montagnards formed a patrol operating in Laos. The patrol team was attacked by a numerically superior force 30 miles inside Laos near Ban Chakevy Tai in Saravane Province. Four of the Montangards escaped and returned to camp to report the ambush and capture of their comrades. When last seen, Brown had been wounded by a gunshot just below the rib cage. He was lying on the ground as the attackers shouted, "Capture the Americans". SSGT Wald and SP4 Shue were also seen to receive numerous shrapnel wounds from a fragmentation grenade. The other team members were forced to withdraw leaving them behind.
Bad weather precluded insertion of a recovery team until November 11. They searched the entire area, but could only find some web gear which was identified as belonging to three of the indigenous team members and SP4 Shue. There was no trace of any graves or of the three missing Americans. They were classified as Missing In Action.

Vietnam-Era Green Beret Finally Returns Home

Published April 29, 2011
| Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- An Army soldier who went missing on a mission in Laos during the Vietnam War will be buried this weekend in North Carolina.

The remains of Sgt. 1st Class Donald Shue, a Green Beret who had been on a secret special forces mission in Laos, were found on a farmer's property in that country a few months ago. Shue's sister Betty Jones tells The Associated Press that she didn't initially believe Army officials who said her brother had been found.

But she was convinced when they showed her a Zippo lighter, inscribed with his name, that was found in Laos. Shue hadn't been seen since November 1969. Thousands are expected to pay their respects this weekend in Concord, where Shue was born, and nearby Kannapolis, where he was raised.

It's time for the 28th Amendment

I will be attending the 21st birthday celebration of a young man tomorrow in Dallas Georgia. His family and friends are so proud of him and so happy to be able to celebrate his birthday with him. His name is Todd Love and he went to Afghanistan as a young twenty year old US Marine. He returned home minus both his legs and an arm. And it's times like these tomorrow that swell a pride in my chest.

And a burning anger in my heart at those in Washington who send these young people off to die and be maimed, yet they can't seem to take care of them when they return in pieces.

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. 

It just does not make any sense.

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?
35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving bullshit must stop.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

WTF Mate?

Apparently the Donald went off like a four letter bottle rocket during a stump speech in Las Vegas yesterday.

Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump unleashed an f-bomb-laced attack on President Obama and Washington politics Thursday night during a speech that likely won't help him win the family-values vote should he decide to run for president.

At a Las Vegas casino that bears his name, Trump assured a crowd of adoring supporters that he is seriously weighing a presidential run and will make a decision soon.

During a 30-minute stump speech focused mostly on foreign affairs, Trump blasted Obama's handling of Libya, Iraq, China and Afghanistan, and in one of his many curse-bombs, he lamented the nation's focus on building schools in war-torn Iraq, while neglecting education in the United States.

"In the meantime we can't get a f---ing school in Brooklyn," he said.

He also cursed the spike in gas prices: "We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you're not going to raise that f---ing price."

Trump even dropped what's considered the most offensive f-bomb when he promised to use swear words while negotiating with China.

"Listen you mother f---ers, we're going to tax you 25 percent," he said.

Trump also sprinkled in a number of insults directed toward the nation's leaders.

"Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people," he said. "It's just very, very sad."

The bottom line, the Donald's relevancy quotient reached zero the minute the white house released their version of the president's birth certificate this week. The Donald went from being the much bally who'd scrappy dog, to being the flamboyant lout who is no more than a loud mouth heckler at this point.

I wonder if Trump actually ever considered that they might actually release the birth certificate when he started his campaign a few weeks ago. I don't think he did. In either event, while Trump claimed credit for the release of the birth certificate, I suspect that there are far more dubious motives behind the timing of the white house release. I await the release of the Corsi book next week to see if there are truly any significant revelations that could be pursued beyond suspicions and innuendo.

I guess we shall see, but in the interim, Trump racing around Vegas cursing like a drunken sailor isn't making the case for himself or the party and in fact he is causing damage to the republican party at this point IMO.

Which raises a question or two on another potential collusion. Could Trump have been recruited to play a role in the coming election? Who would of done such a thing and who has the kind of money that they could lure an already billionaire into some form of conspiracy to discredit the republicans?

I guess we shall see on that count too.

Truth, justice and the American way are not enough anymore

In a soon to be released comic, superman renounces his American citizenship and categorically states that he is tired of being associated with the US and it's politics. Go ahead, read this drivel and then go to the link and read the rest. Absolutely amazing.

The key scene takes place in "The Incident," a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults with the President's national security advisor, who is incensed that Superman appeared in Tehran to non-violently support the protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime, no doubt an analogue for the recent real-life protests in the Middle East. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war.

Superman replies that it was foolish to think that his actions would not reflect politically on the American government, and that he therefore plans to renounce his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day -- and to continue working as a superhero from a more global than national perspective. From a "realistic" standpoint it makes sense; it would indeed be impossible for a nigh-omnipotent being ideologically aligned with America to intercede against injustice beyond American borders without creating enormous political fallout for the U.S. government.

Obama's birth has been settled. Or has it?

Afterwhat was presented by the white house yesterday as the president's birth certificate and the subsequent media stampede to wave Obama's birth document in America's face and close the case definitively, there appears to be one minor (as yet to be addressed problem). Jerome Corsi's soon to be released book on the subject

Jerome Corsi Has a few things to say about the release of the Obama birth certificate yesterday and there are some interesting points being made. .

What is it about twin girls born day after Obama?

What is it about twin girls born day after Obama?
Posted: April 27, 2011
9:58 pm Eastern

© 2011 WorldNetDaily

Today, Barack Obama blinked – releasing birth records he has hired lawyers to prevent the public from seeing, even at the expense of allowing U.S. Army Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin to be court-martialed and sent to prison for having dared ask questions the White House until now has resolutely dismissed with ridicule and disdain.
A key problem for Obama is that birth certificates issued to twin girls born one day later at Kapi'olani hospital, the Nordykes, are the Rosetta Stone of deciphering both Obama's previously released short-form Certification of Live Birth and the newly released purported copy of his long-form birth certificate.

The problem since the short-form certificate was released during the 2008 presidential campaign has always been this:
  • As WND reported, the long-form birth certificates issued by Kapi'olani to the Nordyke twins have certificate numbers lower than the number given Obama, even though the president purportedly was born at the same hospital a day earlier than the Nordykes.
  • Note, Susan Nordyke, the first twin, was born at 2:12 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10637, which was filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
  • Gretchen Nordyke, the second twin, was born at 2:17 p.m. Hawaii time Aug. 5, 1961, and was given certificate No. 151 – 61 – 10638, which was also filed with the Hawaii registrar Aug. 11, 1961.
  • Yet, according to the Certification of Live Birth
    displayed by during the 2008 presidential campaign – and now according to the long-form birth certificate the White House released today – Barack Obama was given a higher certificate number than the Nordykes.
  • Note, Obama was given certificate No. 151 – 1961 – 10641, even though he was born Aug. 4, 1961, the day before the Nordyke twins, and his birth was registered with the Hawaii Department of Health registrar three days earlier, Aug. 8, 1961.
In 1961, the birth certificate numbers were not assigned by the hospitals.
Instead, the numbers were stamped to the birth record by the Hawaii Department of Health at the main office in Honolulu.
This is the only place birth certificate numbers were assigned.
At the last step of the process, the documents were accepted by the registrar general, with the date of registration inserted in box No. 22 on the lower right hand corner of the long-form birth certificate.
The date the birth document was accepted by the registrar general was the date the birth certificate number was stamped on the birth record.
The birth certificate number was stamped on the form by a rubber stamp that automatically increased by one each time a birth certificate was stamped.
The question, therefore, is how was it possible that the Nordyke twins had their birth certificates accepted by the registrar general in Hawaii three days later than the registrar general accepted Obama's birth certificate, when the twins' numbers are lower than Obama's number?
Here are the Nordyke twins birth certificates:

Eleanor Nordyke has speculated that her twins received an earlier birth certificate number because, although she gave birth later than Ann Dunham, she entered Kapi'olani earlier.
Yet, in 1961, birth certificate numbers were not assigned by the hospital, and the date the mother checked into the medical facility was irrelevant to how birth certificate numbers were assigned.
Moreover, no records for Dunham having been a patient at Kapi'olani in 1961, or of Obama having been born at the hospital on Aug. 4, 1961, have been released by the hospital.
Now that President Obama has personally vouched for the authenticity of the birth certificate the White House released today, he can reasonably be asked to authorize Kapi'olani Medical Center to release any and all medical records the hospital may hold for his mother and Barack Obama Sr., his listed father.
The debate over Obama's eligibility to be president has truly only just begun, with Obama's status having changed overnight from a bemused observer to a full-contact participant.
Two weeks before the publication of my book "Where's the Birth Certificate?" the effort to document Obama's past has begun in earnest.
Fundamentally, the world changed for Barack Obama this morning, not just in increasing pressure for the release of the many hidden documents about his past, but in the inescapable reality that the White House must defend this newly released birth certificate as authentic.
Before today, Obama may have attempted to explain away problems with the short-form Certification of Live Birth as the work of his supporters.
Before today, the president largely remained above the fray. Now, he has fully engaged in the presentation and defense of his birth records and his status as a "natural born citizen" under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution.
Obama's presidency now depends upon the White House being able to support the veracity of all the information contained in the birth document released yesterday morning.
In the final analysis, proof that the document is an authentic Obama birth record will await forensic examination.

The media took great delight yesterday in asserting both directly and indirectly, that the release of the birth certificate by the white house, was in essence a 'bitch slap' of Donald Trump and a definitive end to all questions concerning the legitimacy of Barack Obama's qualifications to hold the office of the presidency.

But in reality, the release of the birth certificate was nothing more than a preemptive strike against Corsi's book, that the white house knows is about to be released.

Jerome Corsi isn't simply some wild eyed conspiracist. Jerome Corsi is a well known and renowned Phd who has written several books, not the least of which was "Unfit for Command." The definitive case study of John Kerry and his deceitful attempts to utilize his manufactured Viet Nam war record as a spring board into the white house during the 2004 presidential race.

Yes me Buckos, read the above and contemplate what is about to be released. then contemplate how media in America intends to cover this story from this point forward. In the collective minds of mainstream media, this is a closed issue now. "Move along people, nothing else to be seen here." As an example, yesterday's commentary by Shepherd Smith of Fox news condemning the lunacy of the "birthers" should serve as an indicator of how the American media intends to move forward from this point forward.

But as Jerome Corsi points out in this article, So too did Nixon when he thought that a few pieces of red meat would satisfy those pursing the blood trail of Watergate.

On a side note, it was interesting to see that Jerome Corsi saw as I did, the most glaring indicator of impropriety concerning the Obama long form birth certificate released yesterday. As Mr. Corsi points out (also) the birth certificate registration number simply doesn't match with the facts. Particularly when compared against other legitimate birth certificates from the exact same hospital issued the following day. Birth certificates that inexplicably have lower registration numbers than that of the document presented yesterday as president Obama's birth certificate.

Stay tuned for a bumpy ride. this issue isn't over or resolved by a long shot.

Obama brings in the hatchet man

For those who may be paying attention, Secretary of defense Gates has already cut the Pentagon and defense budgets to the bone, but apparently that wasn't good enough for the white house. Gates was a holdover from the Bush administration and nothing short of a yes man to begin with, even when he was nominated by Bush, but look at what is happening now that he has served his purpose.

Gates apparently balked at devastating the American military by further budget cuts. Not a problem, simply get rid of him and bring in Panetta. Leon Panetta, a man known for knowing absolutely less than nothing about intelligence or the CIA before Obama appointed him head of it.

Now it looks as if the president is going back to the same formula for defense. Panetta's credentials are irrelevant, it's his willingness to be a hatchet man for Obama that really counts.
Push for Pentagon cuts tops Panetta's agenda
President Barack Obama's choice of expert budget-cutter Leon Panetta to lead the Defense Department is a clear signal that the White House perceives the nation's deficit crisis, not the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as its toughest challenge.
After winning the presidency in November 2008, Obama asked Robert Gates to remain defense secretary as the administration struggled to bring clarity to the fog of two wars. In tapping Panetta to replace Gates, Obama is turning to a Washington insider and veteran of budget fights as the administration wrestles with reining in an estimated $1.6 trillion deficit.
A military budget that has doubled since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks faces certain cuts amid the clamor from fiscal-minded lawmakers, emboldened tea partyers and an electorate insistent on Washington changing its spending habits. The prospect of the United States drawing down the number of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan pumps up the volume in the call for cuts.

The truth about Mexican drug cartels

Maybe now that the president's birth has been settled, we can get back to the other issues that continue to plague this country. Not the least of which are armed Mexican drug gangs murdering and spilling over into the US. And where their weapons are actually coming from.

Guns are coming from the US alright
If you ever watch video or look at pictures of the drug war in Mexico, you'll notice some pretty heavy weapons. This is a war being waged with rockets and plastic explosives, not pea shooters and Saturday Night Specials. Consider these incidents:
- A M26A2 fragmentation grenade used against a U.S. Consulate in Mexico in 2008
- Explosive projectiles and 21 grenades found during a raid in Guadalupe
- An unexploded grenade and pull ring used to attack a TV station in Monterrey
- Automatic weapons, including U.S.-made M16s found at a cartel crime scene in May 2009
- U.S. military-issued ammunition found in a cartel raid in Reynosa in November 2008
You can't buy this stuff at a U.S. gun store. So where do the cartels get it? According to leaked diplomatic cables, there are three sources.
1. U.S. Defense Department shipments to Latin America, known and tracked by the U.S. State Department as "foreign military sales."
2. Weapons ordered by the Mexican government, tracked by the State Department as "direct commercial sales."
3. Aging, but plentiful arsenals of military weapon stores in Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua.
Even though these facts were well-known by the Obama administration, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder, it blamed much of the violence in Mexico on U.S. gun stores.
"More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our border," President Obama said in February 2009.
That was contested, but few listened to gun store owners and former vets like Lynn Kartchner, owner of Allsafe Security, a gun shop in Douglas, Ariz.
"We in the gun industry knew from day one the allegations that the preponderance of sales came from gun stores like this one was totally not true," Kartchner said.
In fact, many of these weapons are getting to Mexico via the U.S. government. Tens of thousands of firearms and explosives are sold legally through the U.S. State Department to the Mexican government. These weapons are then funneled to the traffickers and cartels by corrupt officials within the Mexico Ministry of Defense and local and state police departments.

Mystery solved! Obama is an American!

As of this morning, the mystery has been solved! Barack Obama isn't an alien, resident or otherwise. According to a document produced by the white house this morning, the president was in fact born in Hawaii on August 4th 1961 and they have produced the birth certificate to prove it, once and for all.

End of story period and paragraph right. And besides, anyone who continues to challenge the issue beyond today is certainly a loon and not worthy of any serious consideration right?

As a mere pedestrian standing along the side lines, I have one simple observation concerning the release of Obama's birth certificate earlier today.

Obama's birth certificate purports to represent a live birth registration number of (61-10641) in the upper right hand corner.  Aside from the fact that the document is a facsimile that is being portrayed on a contemporary background of present day bond paper, everything seems to be in order. Or does it.

Out of curiosity, I googled images of Hawaiian birth certificates, just to see if there was anything that the newly released birth certificate could be compared against. And sure enough, I found a photo of a birth certificate for "Susan Elizabeth Nordyke," born approximately eighteen hours and a few minutes after Barack Obama at the same hospital.

The form is the same, aside from the fact that it appears to actually be a photo copy and not a layered facsimile as the one submitted for Obama today appears to be. However, there are two glaring stand out differences between the two documents in my humble opinion.

First, the registration numbers in the upper right corner? Ms. Nordyke, who was born the following afternoon after then future president Obama? Well her registration number (Registration of birth) is (61-10637). What does that mean? It means that Ms. Nordykes registration number is four numbers lower than Barack Obama's? And she was born at least eighteen hours after he was born.

There is also an issue of the "signature of the local registrar" on both documents. Curiously? Two different people signed off as "local registrar" on the two documents. Eighteen hours apart and at the same hospital, there were two different registrars of live births.

Two different registrars and a non sequential birth registration number issued to someone born eighteen hours later? Just sayin.

Here is ms. Nordyke's birth certificate as I found it posted on the internet a couple of hours ago.

A copy of which can be viewed on line at this LINK

And here is the president's newly released birth certificate.

Which can be viewed at this LINK

As the old adage goes, "I report, you decide."

Is what was submitted to the American people today as the official birth certificate of Barack Obama the final and definitive evidence to put the controversy to a rest? In all probability it is,as the media and the pundits will be completely satisfied and more than happy to move on from this non issue as they see it.

But the fact remains, that what was released today as the president's birth certificate, simply doesn't past the smell test if you look at the most basic representations of the document and then compare it to other known documents of live birth recorded within hours of his at the same hospital.

Was it possible for someone else to be born eighteen hours after Barack Hussein Obama II, at the exact same hospital and receive a lower birth registration number and a different local registrar of live births to sign off on their birth certificate? Apparently so. But it sure seems strange don't it. Just saying.

The ministry of truth says no

Well, it looks like the ministry of truth and information in Hawaii, has closed the door on any further inquiries into the president's birth records.

Hawaii slams the door
With billionaire and possible GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump ratcheting interest in Barack Obama's Hawaiian birth documentation to its highest level ever, the State of Hawaii is suddenly enforcing a policy that no one – not even the president of the United States – can obtain a copy of his own birth certificate from the state's Department of Health. 

Although the policy of denying the public access to copies of long-form original hospital birth certificates was announced in 2001, it wasn't enforced for years. But with Trump's recent pointed questioning of the circumstances of Obama's birth – and whether he was even born in America – Hawaii officials have apparently determined that the long-overlooked state procedure now requires enforcement.
A simple questions seems to beg the asking. Since when can a state deny access to official birth records on any individual born in that state? And since when can laws be passed by states that assert that an individual is only entitled to information on their own birth,  as the state deems proper?

The fact that Hawaii or any other state can somehow deny any person access to their own birth records, screams of impropriety and a violation of individual rights. But this is a case that won't be pursued any time in the near future. Especially not by this president.

Live from death row

For those unfamiliar, thirty years ago, a Philadelphia police officer was gunned down by a black panther named Mumia Abu-Jamal (born Wesley Cook). Mumia's case has taken on celebrity status and legions of leftist and Hollywood fringe players have beaten the drum for Mumia's release ever since.

Well, it looks like they will finally get their wish. Mumia will be released and soon.

A U.S. appeals court is awarding death-row activist Mumia Abu-Jamal a new sentencing hearing in the 1981 murder of a Philadelphia police officer.

Tuesday's ruling is the latest in the former Black Panther's long-running legal saga.

The 58-year-old Mumia's first-degree murder conviction stands in the fatal shooting of Officer Daniel Faulkner.

But the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is upholding its earlier ruling that the death-penalty instructions to the jury were unclear at Mumia's 1982 trial.

The U.S. Supreme Court last year ordered the court to review that decision.

The three-judge panel is standing by its decision after hearing a new round of legal arguments.

This ruling places Mumia one step away from freedom. All that is required is a new sentencing hearing (in the now predominantly black city of Philadelphia) and Mumia will be released on time served. Remember where you heard that first.

If you have been out of touch for a while with mainstream leftist causes, go have a look and read up on the man for yourself. Mumia Abu-Jamal at Wikipedia It is utterly amazing the celebrity this murderer has attained via socialist and Marxist causes and supporters.

Rubbing our noses in it

Some are questioning whether the president is aware of the appearance that he is giving to the American people. going as far as to question whether this president and his administration are tone deaf when it comes to the realities of race that they are putting forth to be questioned.

I say no. There is no tone deafness. What is being done is purposeful and with intended meaning and inference. Enter Barack Obama's new pastor as an example.

No, Barack Obama isn't tone deaf. If anything, he is rubbing our noses in it and laughing at our unwillingness and inability to see what is being done or to challenge it.

How could the man sit in the pews of Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years and not know what was going on? The same way he can sit in the pews of his latest church and hear the exact same message from a similar pastor and then look at Americans as if they are stupid for even raising the issue of questioning his loyalty to faith or country.

I can't speak for all Americans? But I believe that I speak for many when I say that there are no coincidences when it comes to how this president is conducting himself. And no, it wasn't a simple oversight that there were no Easter messages delivered by this president. Just as there will be no mistake when he once again publicly cites and observes the next Muslim holiday from the white house.

The man is literally rubbing our noses in the feces of this administration and the American media and most Americans don't even have the common sense to wash their faces after the fact.

Plan your work and work your plan

Looks like that is precisely what he is doing to me.

Obama the non story

With gas prices and inflation approaching record highs, you might think that the media would be turning up the heat on the white house. You would be wrong. The mainstream media absolutely refuses to cover this president's short comings and failures on energy policy.

Media Don't Blame Obama

The average price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline hit $3.86 on April 25, more than $1-a-gallon higher than a year earlier and less than 25 cents away from the record high price of gasoline set in July 2008.

In fact, per gallon prices are more than $2 higher than when Obama took office Jan. 20, 2009. Yet the president has been nearly exempt from criticism on the issue of rising prices, despite a six-month drilling moratorium and more regulatory hurdles for industry.

The Business & Media Institute found that out of the 280 oil price stories the network evening shows have aired since the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, only 1 percent (3 stories) mentioned Obama's drilling ban or other anti-oil actions in connection with gasoline prices.

Instead of asking whether Obama's anti-oil policies could be increasing the cost of gas, the networks blamed other factors such as Mideast turmoil or the "money game" played by speculators. Certainly, the turmoil in Libya, Egypt and surrounding nations has increased worries about oil production and can influence the price. But the networks also should have looked for explanations much closer to home, like Obama's many regulatory actions taken against the oil industry.

So as we approach $4 a gallon and $5 a gallon and potentially $6 a gallon by the summer? When is the media going to scrutinize this president and his economic and energy policies? I say don't hold your breath. He told the media and America what his plan was going in and nothing has changed.

Of course if this was happening during the Bush administration? The media would be howling like a pack of blood crazed hyenas and demanding answers, but they aren't and it reminds me of that old adage I have seen numerous times throughout my life.

As it concerns the media and their answers to Obama's failed energy policy? Answers are $1 apiece. Answers that require thought are $2 apiece. Answers that have a grain of truth? Well those are $5 apiece. And dumb looks? Those are free. And that's about the size of it folks. Not only is the media not interested in pursuing the truth of mismanagement as it concerns this president and his economic and energy policies? They are unabashed in their expression of dumb looks as they continue to plod along, hustling their tabloid headlines of celebrity drivel on Lindsey Lohan, Charlie Sheen and American Idol et al.

And the band plays on and as each day passes, we slide deeper and deeper into the great abyss. An abyss that will literally consume all that was once great about this nation. But by golly! We at least have one thing going for us! "We have a black president!" And like someone at the barber shop said last week: "The last time Americans voted for a president? They voted for Obama to prove that they weren't racist. This time around? They will vote for anyone but him to prove that they aren't stupid."

I say it's too late for the latter.....

The price of oil and other things

This is one of my blogs where I won't be excerpting anything from outside sources. I am rather going to rely on the immediate memory of those who may be reading this and hopefully make a few points that will register with their recollections. What's going on with the price of oil? Which should in truth raise the question, what's going on with the price of other things also.

The bottom line, unless you have been living in a cave and playing bingo for the past several months oblivious to the outside world, you have been forced to become aware of the steady increase in the price of oil. An increase that has translated into rising cost of gasoline at the pump and the realization that we are now closing in on the $4 a gallon mark. $5 a gallon by summer is becoming more and more of a certainty based upon the forecasts.

So, what is going on? While many people believe that the price of oil is being driven by some shortage of oil, or a certain collusion amongst OPEC countries or those speculating commodity prices on Wall Street? The reality is much different. The reality is that the dollar has declined and continues to decline to record levels. The declining dollar is what is really driving the price of oil and the leadership of this country is who is behind that declining dollar.

Oil on the world markets is priced in dollars and the Fed's policy of 'quantitative easing' has led to increased oil prices and inflation. Quantitative easing simple stated, is the printing of more money by the Fed, with nothing to sustain it. Combine that with the uncontrolled spending of the US government and the treasury secretary's demand that the debt limit ceiling once again be raised? And we have the perfect economic storm upon us.

It's no longer a question of what if. It's now a question of what now and what next. One trip to the grocery store will tell you that inflation is upon us. Combined with other forces and influences that ebb and flow regardless of our present economic status, America is literally teetering on the edge of an economic collapse. And the best game plan that this administration has been able to come up with, is to spend phenomenal amounts of money on bailouts and pointless and unsustainable subsidized housing and auto manufacturing schemes.

And now the powers that be in congress and the white house tell us that we must increase our debt ceiling and we must absorb the continued printing of more money in order to keep the banks afloat.

The reality is simple. Oil is priced in US dollars. The US dollar is literally becoming worthless. The devaluing of the dollar is what is driving the price of oil on the international markets and the devalued dollar is what is driving inflation and will continue to drive inflation.

So the next time you go to pump or the grocery store and look in your wallet? You may think you have x number of dollars there, but what you really have are devalued dollars that no longer will buy what they did as recently as a year ago. And the trend continues to worsen.

The president has commissioned a group to look into the price of oil to determine if there is any gouging present or those taking advantage of the situation in order to raise prices. I suggest he direct his commission to the Fed and Timothy Geithner at Treasury. There is where the gouging and the taking advantage of Americans is truly occurring.

"Uncle Jack"

"Likely to breech the peace and incite violence."

Our founding fathers were pretty crafty old birds. They knew of man's intrinsic God given rights and freedoms and of man's occasional propensity to become carried away with himself in the pursuit of them. That is why after they crafted the US constitution, their first order of business was to set about the specifics of constitutionally protected activities and they set about to clarify precisely what protected speech meant.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

What most Americans are not familiar with? Is the latter part of that amendment. The last sentence that has apparently become bleached out with time and no longer readable. Those in Michigan are familiar with it though......

Pastor Terry Jones leaves Dearborn, vows to return for protest next week Controversial Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones left Dearborn Saturday after unsuccessfully staging a protest outside of the Islamic American Center, but not before vowing to return the following week for another protest.

Jones and his associate Wayne Sapp left for Florida, but say they'll hold a protest at 5:00p.m. next Friday. This time, however, it will not be at the Islamic center, it will be at the courthouse. Jones says his constitutional rights were denied when he was arrested and unable to protest on Friday.

The development came after a jury found a proposed protest by Jones and his associate Wayne Sapp outside the Islamic Center of America, the largest mosque in the United States, was likely to breach the peace and incite violence.

The juries of Dearborn and their judges certainly know about the entire wording of the amenment.

Their 1st amendment reads thus......

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, unless such actions are likely to breach the peace or incite violence and under those circumstances, the above listed rights become null and void."

Apparently, all those years of propping up the constitution on the steps of the Capital every 4th of July in the sun took their toll. Apparently that last sentence was bleached out and lost to immediate recognition and posterity. But luckily those in Dearborn and other communities saw fit to write it down and secret it away for future references and later decades.

I guess this must have been what happened a few years back concerning abortion and a few other recent rulings by the Supreme court. They must either have special glasses that permit the reading of the faded parts of the constitution? Or they have their own private copies that they reference when the need arises.

In either event, the original intent of the first amendment obviously was never intended to protect unpopular or antagonistic speech when it involved Muslims. Unless of course that speech is defended by the ACLU or those representing entities like the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka Kansas. When those two entities are involved? Everyone immediately knows where the constitution stands on the matter of freedom of speech and who's rights will be protected when it involves the ACLU.

As it concerns pastor Terry Jones and his desire to protest against Muslims? My recommendation to him would be this. Stop pursuing the idiocy of and illegality of protests that are likely to incite violence or breech the peace. Pastor Terry should stick with the known and the easily defensible and the approved activities that are unquestionably constitutionally protected.

Pastor Terry should gather his followers and make signs and head down to the nearest mosque during the next funeral. And he and his followers should be there at these mosques as frequently and as often as possible and at every funeral there after.

What should the free speech signs say?
"Thank God for Predator Drones and Hellfire missiles!" Allah hates woman's faces! Allah's wrath be upon you! Allah hates America! Allah hates infidel Arabs!"

Make the signs rainbow colored and prop them up in the hands of women children. Maybe add a crescent here and there for added panache. Certainly the US Constitution and our courts will be more than happy to intercede and protect pastor Terry Jones and his speech then right? I mean, it's more about approach than content right?

Not Just in America

On the heels of my last blog, I came across this report on violence in a McDonald's in the UK. This resulted in a homicide.

Dad who split up fight in McDonald's shot dead

A DAD-of-four who split up a fight in a McDonald’s was shot dead moments after being told he wouldn’t see the morning.

Raymond Mitchell, 34, had only popped into the restaurant to buy a hot chocolate.
Advertisement >>

But he apparently caused offence after splitting up two men fighting in the queue.

One of them, who had several gold teeth, shouted at Raymond: “You are gonna die tonight, you are not gonna see the morning.”

The thug is then said to have phoned an accomplice to fetch a gun, yelling into his mobile: “Bring me that thing.”

Raymond left the 24-hour McDonald’s but was chased into a cul-de-sac. The gun was then delivered and Mr Mitchell was beaten and pistol-whipped before being shot three times in an alley in Brixton, South London, at 6.50am on Sunday. Raymond, nicknamed Brown, was taken to hospital but died hours later.

One neighbour, who saw the shooting but was too terrified to be named, said: “He was begging, literally begging for his life. I didn’t dare look out my window in case they saw me. I heard them laughing and swearing at him, calling him a ‘b***h’. I heard them laughing afterwards as well.”

Raymond’s partner, who asked not to be named, said: “I’m terrified. They’re still out there and they’ve not been caught. I’ve been told how they were laughing, actually laughing after they beat him and shot him. How could anybody do something like that?”

Another racial beatdown at McDonalds?

UPDATE...After I originally posted this article and video earlier today, Live Link has apparently gone back and edited out all of their previous racial references and references to the race of all involved and added the following response by McDonald's.
"4.19 pm EST UPDATE: response from Mc Donalds: "We are shocked by the video from a Baltimore franchised restaurant showing an assault. This incident is unacceptable, disturbing and troubling. McDonald's strives to be a safe, welcoming environment for everyone who visits. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of customers and employees in our restaurants. We are working with the franchisee and the local authorities to investigate this matter."

Which is all the more reason to do screen captures of news events now a days. Before the thought police and the PR brigades arrive to silence the obvious.

So blares the headline currently on The Drudge Report.

Watch the video

Now see if you can answer the questions. What has changed? Why so many acts of black rage against white victims of late? Why no outrage at the racial tinged rage of blacks being witnessed almost daily now? Any correlation between the recurring attacks and roving black teen gangs and the fact that there is a black president?

You decide. But be fore warned of the racially charged rage being observed nationally of late.

Some of the questions rightfully being asked....

Violence in another Mc Donalds almost kills customer
Here is another fine example of the trend of violence in fast food restaurants. Two black females beating the hell out of a white patron, while several black employees stand by and watch. One black male manages to provide the facade of assistance to the white victim in this brutal attack.

The two black females exit, then re-enter the store to continue the beating, until a an older white woman att More..empts to stop them from dragging the white victim outside into the parking lot. note: the black male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack.

At the end, the white victim is beaten until she has a seizure, at which point the camera operator warns the black female attackers to flee, because the police are on the way. Note: he makes sure to repeatedly tell the criminal attackers to flee, instead of keeping them there for the police to apprehend.

Another update on the case 4/23/2011

It may be a hate crime now. now that it has been revealed that the victim is transgendered.

Hate Crime?

The victim of a sustained attack in a Baltimore County McDonald's has spoken for the first time about the beating she received, and how nobody came to her aid.

Chrissy Lee Polis, a 22-year-old transgender woman, said she was afraid to go outside after the attack, and hinted that it might have been racially motivated - as both of her attackers were black.

She said: 'They just hurt me really bad, and I'm afraid to go outside now because of stuff like this.'

She said the violence kicked off after she had used the ladies restrooms in the McDonald's outlet, but denied reports that this was the reason why the violence erupted.

Spending America out of existence

Why should this be surprising news. This man has spent more than all the other presidents who have preceded him combined. and yet there is absolutely nothing to show for it. Side from staggering debt and deficits. and all to further his socialist dream.

Obama's plan a sham....

A leading panel of budget experts estimated Thursday that President Obama's latest spending plan does not save as much money as the White House initially claimed and is about $1.5 trillion more expensive than the Republican plan.

Since he delivered a major fiscal policy address last week, Obama and other officials have touted that the White House plan would cut $4 trillion over 12 years. Using that figure, they've claimed it's very similar to a House Republican plan which supposedly would cut $4.4 trillion over 10 years.

But given that most budget outlines use a 10-year window, as required by law, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget tried to offer an apples-to-apples comparison -- and determined Obama's proposal would actually cut deficits by $2.5 trillion over the next decade. It credited the president for "moving the ball forward," but said that based on Congressional Budget Office assumptions, the plan doesn't do enough to tackle the debt crisis.

"It appears unlikely that the policies proposed in the president's framework would be sufficient to reduce debt to a manageable level," they wrote.

And here the man was in San Francisco yesterday telling us that he needs another term to finish his plan. If we don't get rid of him soon, he will finish us...

No matter who you are

"No matter who you are. No matter where you can came from. No matter what you look like. No matter whether your ancestors landed here on Ellis Island or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande, we are all connected. We will rise and fall together. That's the vision of America I've got, that's the idea of the heart of America," President Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco.

"That's the idea of the heart of our campaign," Obama added.

I can't find a direct embed link for the video, so you will have to go here to see it and hear it.

In the same speech today, Obama can be heard telling supporters that his work is not finished. "It is gonna take more than a couple of years. It is gonna take more than one term to finish everything that we want to do."

Meanwhile in other news. president Obama decided today to give Pakistan 85 of our Predator drones. Apparently in response to their complaining that we have been using them to go after Al Qaeda in Pakistan. So, we give them 85 of these birds at 4.5 million a copy. I must have missed that in last weeks budget cutting discussions and department of defense mandated cuts.

U.S. to supply Pakistan with 85 mini-drones

It just keeps getting worse by the day.....

NY Times plan to gut the Pentagon

So, you saw this reported and heard all about it in mainstream media right?
Read on..........

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [April 20, 2011] at "Black Five" Obama decided to inform the Defense Department that they needed to make $400 Billion in cuts by announcing this is in a speech without even mentioning it to his Defense Secretary. Therefore it is unsurprising that the NY Times would take this opportunity to anounce their cunning plan to screw the troops and crush our expeditionary fighting capability. I guess this requires at least a partial Fisking.
We in no way minimize the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform.
Yeah right. Wait for it......
But after years of lagging far behind, military pay is now more than $5,000 a year higher than comparable civilian employment, more than $10,000 a year higher when special allowances and benefits are counted. Freezing noncombat pay for three years would save $3 billion per year. The formula for future increases should be adjusted to incorporate allowances and benefits, saving an additional $5 billion a year.  Another $4 billion to $6 billion annually could be saved by reasonable increases in annual health insurance premiums for military retirees of working age. Those premiums — currently $460 per family — have been frozen for the past 15 years while health care costs soared.
All told, these changes would save about $20 billion annually or more than $200 billion over the next 12 years.
Just exactly what comparable civilian employment are they using for this? Are there civilian jobs that cause multiple overseas deployments to combat zones with the realistic proposition that you could be killed or maimed? Or to be away from your family more often than not, while they check the news each day hoping there were no IED blasts or other casualties? I kinda doubt it. So comparing the pay of a clerk in the civilian world to a clerk deployed w/ an Infantry unit to a Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan is stupid and insulting. Now that the left is hell bent on giving every American free health care, they want to go ahead and add fees to the military community. Hey guys, you really need to head over to the nearest organic, free range, shade grown, union labor picked, coffee shop and order a Venti cup of STFU!
The Pentagon took too long to recognize that today’s wars make more intensive demands on the Army and Marines and less on the Navy and Air Force.
The Pentagon took too long to recognize this? Gimme a freakin' break. The Pentagon can shift mission faster than any organization on the face of the Earth, it just can't do so under the loving bureaucracy placed on them by Congress.
Ground forces have been increased, but that needs to be paid for by corresponding reductions at sea and in the air. That shift has already begun but needs to go further. Another $1 billion to $2 billion a year could be saved by reducing the number of aircraft carrier groups from 11 to 10 and associated air wings from 10 to 9.
There is a lot more there, so take the time to read the entire piece. Truly unbelievable, except for everything in this administration seems to take on the same hue of unbelievability.

While the parties wrestle with the coming budget deals and so called cuts, keep you eyes on where those in the NY Times and those in Obama's administration would like to see the lion's share of any cuts.

We have done this before haven't we? Most recently during the Carter years and again during Clinton's tenure. The liberals call it a 'peace dividend.'  I call it the liberal invitation for aggression. Have a look at what the Chinese have been up to and the Russians since Obama took office. Then try and convince yourself that all is well in the skewed world of Obama's intentions for this country and our military.

The climate change revolution

Watch how those behind the 'climate change revolution' see their change for the world.

Watch until the end and see if you can answer the last protestor's question. Those like Pelosi and those inside and out of the Obama administration encourage this type of lunacy, because it is the socialist blueprint. Look at and listen to the solutions being put forth by the mindless youth supporting the guest speakers and orators like Van Johnson and the present head of our EPA.

These are the people who will influence the decisions for our immediate future. No, not the bearded geeks and dancing hippie girls, but those in the suits at the lecterns.

Van Jones may be outside the beltway, but he is still inside the loop of the trusted and leadership of the movement to turn this nation into a third world state.

You and your 'dirty data'

Times must really be tough in the green community. In their frenzy to accuse and assail, they are going after their own now. Looks like even Jobs and Apple are open for evisceration on the alter of green worship. But really? Dirty Data?

That's original.

So, I guess that means that everyone who is connected to the net and has a computer, or a cell phone, but especially a smart phone? That makes all of us 'dirty data' consumers. Personally, I am not that comfortable being lumped in with Jobs and Apple or any of the green clan, but how can that be helped when the Green Peace loonies include the entire world in their accusatory net.

I wonder if they realize that they were born in facilities and raised under circumstances that were fueled primarily by coal fired power plants. Making them all dirty little birds from birth to the present.

Read on then contemplate this. What say they all pack up and go live in the rain forest for the next forty years. Then report back to the rest of us on how much better they feel for their sacrifices. Say on or about 2051?

Yes, yes! What a delightful idea!

Apple has come bottom of the most comprehensive green league table of technology companies because of its heavy reliance on "dirty data" centres.
The list, which is compiled by Greenpeace and released in San Francisco on Thursday, shows that the company relies heavily on highly polluting coal power at the sites that house its banks of servers.
Greenpeace's report, How Dirty is Your Data? reveals that the company's investment in a new North Carolina facility will triple its electricity consumption, equivalent to the electricity demand of 80,000 average US homes. The facility's power will be supplied by Duke Energy, with a mix of 62% coal and 32% nuclear. On Wednesday, Apple posted a large boost in quarterly earnings, which grew by 95% to $6bn (£3.65bn).
Gary Cook, Greenpeace's IT policy analyst and lead author of the report, said: "Consumers want to know that when they upload a video or change their Facebook status that they are not contributing to global warming or future Fukushimas."

GE's Profit Jumps 77%

I don't usually just clip and paste a headline, but this one kinda says it all.

While most businesses in America are still grappling with the recession and trying to keep from going under, one corporation seems to be sailing in clear skies above the fray and seemingly insulated from the threats others are facing. I wonder why that is.....

GE's Profit Jumps 77%

General Electric Co. reported a 77% increase in first-quarter earnings, lifted by marked improvement at its GE Capital financing arm and gains at most of its industrial units.

The company also boosted its quarterly dividend by a penny to 15 cents. The move marks GE's third dividend increase in the past year, although the payout remains well short of GE's 31-cent dividend before the financial crisis and economic downturn.

"Our environment continues to improve and get better," said Chairman and Chief Executive Jeff Immelt on a call with analysts, noting that the restructuring of GE Capital was ahead of plan while the quarter saw record orders for its industrial unit.

Mr. Immelt also said the company was done with major acquisitions after spending $11 billion to expand its energy unit.

GE shares were up 2.2% to $20.85 in premarket activity. The stock has risen 12% year-to-date through Wednesday, with GE's strong first-quarter results following a fourth-quarter report in January that showed substantial evidence of a turnaround.

Mr. Immelt reiterated confidence that the Fairfield, Conn., company will achieve goals laid out in its 2011 financial framework, which among other things calls for about 5% revenue growth in GE's industrial businesses. GE has been relying on its industrial units to fuel its long-term prospects as it moves to shrink GE Capital, which once accounted for half the conglomerate's profit but became a severe drag during the financial crisis.

Obviously, there must be something to be said for being connected with this administration. Even General Motors hasn't received this level of success and Obama hand picked their CEO and forced controlling interest in the company.

The media's continued obfuscation on Obama

Be it his comments behind closed doors in front of witnesses, or on open mikes with the media, Barack Obama continues to enjoy public media obfuscation when it comes to his off color and anti American remarks.

CONFIRMED: CBS Editors Refuse To Release Full Audio Of Obama Hot Mic Recording!

by Andrew Marcus
Last weekend, His Presidency Barack Obama was captured making potentially offensive comments to a group of big money donors who had paid large sums of money for special access to His Presidency.
We observed that CBS only released “selectively edited” moments from the raw tape. We know how much the mainstream media values complete and full disclosure of recordings of this nature, so we found it curious, to say the least, that there was not one drop of intellectual curiosity from these guardians of media purity regarding the content of the full recording.
Maybe CBS’s motive has nothing to do with protecting His Presidency from potential embarrassment. Perhaps, like Nixon before them, CBS accidentally erased the portions of the recording that they have not released. Anything is possible, right?
Alas, no. John Romano, Publisher of the blog “Yes, But, However!” has confirmed with CBS’s Mark Knoller (via Twitter) that CBS has decided that they are not going to release the complete recording.
@markknoller Why haven’t you released all of the audio of President Obama’s “donor meeting”? If you have please link?
@markknoller This is my third request. Why will you not release the full audio of Obama’s donor conversation?
@yesbuthowever My editors decided against it.
People can speculate as to what their motive is, but we suspect that they do not want to jeopardize their White House access leading into campaign season by being the ones to release the audio of His Presidency referring to Americans as “slugs.”
There is a point at which the truth will prevail and those involved in the denial of truth to the people, will be held to account for their complicit acts of intentionally lying to the people and covering for corruption under the auspices of a free press.  

The story is developing

The lead headline on the Drudge report this morning, reflects another 'developing story.' To say that this story is developing? Is an understatement of the highest magnitude. 

This story has been 'developing' for almost three years now and now that a book is about to be released? A book by none other than Jerome Corsi (the man who exposed John Kerry) the media will alternate between a feeding frenzy and an absolute state of closed ranks denial.

The media may have now come to the realization that their golden child is not exactly who they thought he was and who they hyped him to be, but they still aren't ready to throw him under the bus or turn the white house back over to the GOP. Not just yet. 

So let's see how this latest revelation of the media's so
called 'birther controversy' plays out in the court of public opinion. Because after all, when the media isn't doing back bends trying to shape public opinion, they are bowing to it in one fashion or another.

Wed Apr 20 2011 10:35:52 ET


This year's high stakes publishing project quietly went to press this week, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

After years of research and digging by the nation's top private investigators, here it comes:

"WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President."


The street date is a LONG month away, and author Jerome Corsi, the man who torpedoed John Kerry's presidential dreams with SWIFT BOAT, has gone underground and is holding his new findings thisclose.

"It's utterly devastating," reveals a source close to the publisher. "Obama may learn things he didn't even know about himself!"


Does Corsi definitively declare the location of Obama's birth?

Will the president's attorneys attempt to interfere with the book's distribution? [The publisher vows to vigorously fight any legal action that may be taken.]

Will the book finally -- once and for all -- put an end to the growing controversy?

Or will it just ignite new ones!?

"When Donald Trump said he sent PIs to Hawaii to get to the bottom of all this, he meant this book," declares an insider.

[THE CASE ranked #1,341 on AMAZON's hitparade late Wednesday morning.]

The border patrol that doesn't

The US Border Patrol, the border patrol that doesn't. Or maybe patrol is all they do. They patrol and patrol, they just don't act. Unbelievable? When are Americans going to start to believe their eyes and ears and stand up and say enough is enough?

This nation is being invaded and the states and federal government are just accommodating them.
An Arizona sheriff says he has been flooded with calls and emails of support from local and federal agents who back his claims that the U.S. Border Patrol has effectively ordered them to stop apprehending illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.

“Upper management has advised supervisors to have agents ‘turn back South’ (TBS) the illegal aliens (aka bodies) they detect attempting to unlawfully enter the country … at times you even hear supervisors order the agents over the radio to 'TBS' the aliens instead of catching them,” one San Diego border agent wrote in an email to Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever.

“This only causes more problems as the aliens, as you know, don't just go back to Mexico and give up. They keep trying, sometimes without 10 minutes in-between attempts, to cross illegally,” continued the email, which was among a number of communications to Dever reviewed by “This makes the job for agents more dangerous. Not only are the aliens more defiant, they also begin to feel like they can get away with breaking our federal laws.”

Obama's Robin Hood Economics

Those who are paying attention to our dwindling economy realize, that president Obama's proposed Robin Hood tactic of taking from the rich to give to the poor isn't going to work to solve our deficits or our economic woes. Those who are paying attention and who lived through the 60's and are alive today know that this socialist scheme is nothing original. America has been on the Robin Hood plan of socialist economics since at least the era of Lyndon Johnson's 'great society.' Therefore, Barack Obama hasn't come up with anything original when it comes to his version of spreading the wealth.

If anyone wanted to write a blueprint on how to destroy a capitalist nation, all they would have to do is to look at the United States over the last fifty years and look at where we are now. America hasn't had a true balanced budget since 1957. Everything in the interim has been run as a deficit with smoke and mirrors as the accounting practices of congress. When John Kennedy took office and began programs like the Peace Corps and NASA? These programs began to be funded on the American credit card of deficit spending and everything since has followed the exact same formula. All Lyndon Johnson and his predecessors did was jump on the financed band wagon of deferring payments.

Everything that we have done in the interim since the early 60's in this country has been charged to our futures and now the debt has become so enormous as to literally be beyond comprehension or our ability to pay it. Washington operates like some maddened entity that knows only how to spend and never how to save or pay back.

Since the middle 60's and president Johnson's grandiose war on poverty, America has spent about fifty trillion dollars on social programs, none of which have accomplished what they promised. And the most recent examples of these socialist feel good policies, are precisely what has put us where we presently are today. We have been 'paying it forward' for almost fifty years now and the bill is coming due now.

As recent as five and ten years ago, the likes of Barney Frank and Barbara Boxer and a host of other liberal democrats in congress, were telling us that there was a 'right to fair housing.' What they didn't tell the people was that fair housing meant 'free housing' or more specifically stated, government subsidized and taxpayer paid for housing.

So, literally millions of people who could not qualify for mortgages and should have never of been considered for mortgages were given mortgages under the auspices of 'fair housing.' And they were given marked down adjustable rate mortgages that allowed them to qualify for homes two and three times what they should have been qualified for even considering the lunacy of the existing mortgage lending practices. And the banks and the conservatives played right along and bundled these mortgages and rode the waves of speculative financing and revamped fiscal responsibility legislation right into the collapse of 2008.

And one day in 2008 when the music stopped and there simply weren't enough chairs for everyone at the party? That's when the trembling began and it has worsened every day since. Our economic dream bubble finally burst in 2008 and we have been on a greased rail to oblivion ever since.

We are two and a half years into the era of a 'change we can believe in?' And so far absolutely nothing has changed in the economy or our future prospects for the economy. The economy has worsened, jobs continue to fall away and the best that our president (and his party) can muster is to tell us that he will not stand idly by while cuts are made to the entitlement Nirvana that his party created over the last fifty years. Make no mistake, the republicans are equally complicit, they just turned their heads and allowed the entitlements to rise, just as long as they got their earmarks at the public feeding trough for their own pet projects.

So here we sit. Rapidly descending into an abyss of economic collapse and oblivion and all that our president can tell us? Is that the evil rich need to be squeezed, taxes need to be raised and once done all will be well with the world. The liberal democrats would like us to believe that all we have to do is raise taxes on the 'evil rich' and the deficits will somehow simply go away. Maybe someone needs to look back over the history of tax increases and the deficit and show me where and at any time our deficit has been reduced by a tax increase. It simply has never happened. All that does happen when we increase taxes, is that those elected in Washington see the increased revenue as so many more blank checks for them to spend on their entitlement programs.

"Mo Money! Mo Money! Mo Money!!!!!

Ronald Reagan proved that the economy can literally be grown by reducing taxes and increasing jobs and productivity, but what was the end result of increased tax revenues through growth during the Reagan years? That's right, we spent that much more and borrowed that much more. Same thing different day is a nice way of putting it (SSDD)

America as a nation simply cannot sustain our existing debt, much less afford to add to it. If we were to stop spending today. On everything? Not just eliminate ear marks and add on's to the budget, but truly call a full stop on every addition? It would take us almost four hundred years to pay off our existing debt. If we were to make payments of one hundred million dollars a day, (that's a billion dollars every ten days) and thirty six and a half billion dollars a year! It would take three hundred and eighty nine years for us to pay off our debt. And that does not include our day to day expenses of running this government. So what was it the bipartisan budget deal saved us last week? Thirty eight billion? and we spent fifty four billion while they were arguing over it?

So the next time that you see John Boehner or Barack Obama telling the nation what a good job they did in lowering the deficit, think about the lies that you are being told by them. They are lying! All of them! If there is one thing that is truly bipartisan in Washington? It is the lies!

I'll close this rant by making one more observation as it concerns our debt and our deficit. Last week, Treasury Secretary Geithner told Americans that if we didn't raise the debt limit? Then the nation would collapse and the blame would fall to the republicans who stood in the way of raising the debt ceiling.

And today? The S&P came out and notified the United states that they had "downgraded the outlook for the United States to negative, saying it believes there's a risk U.S. policymakers may not reach agreement on how to address the country's long-term fiscal pressures."

That's at nice way of saying that we have reached the limit on our credit cards and that they know that we cannot make the interest payments for much longer. It's also a nice way of saying, don't be surprised when later on down the road, when we down grade the US long term fiscal outlook to unstable and collapsing.

And as a result of our inability to rein in spending, as I write this, the Dow Jones opened down 225 points this morning on the S&P forecast and has remained -200 all morning. Today, we may see a one day drop that sets a record before this day is over. The stop gap fail safe is (I believe) a 1200 point drop in one day. If that happens, then the markets automatically shut down until the following day. We may just see that happen to the markets before this week is out.
