<p>Jon McNaughton's Latest: Obamanation (One Painting That Says It All) MUST SEE Enlargement: CLICK to see McNaughton's Unique 'Interactive Work' By Jon McNaughton -- I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration. I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art. This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama. To those who scoff or wish to trivialize this painting, I challenge you… I DARE YOU… study the links of the various symbols and metaphors that you see. There are over 60 in the painting. No person can analyze this image and learn about these facts and still, in good conscience, vote for Obama in 2012. I do not hate Obama, but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture. Has the painting gone too far? I knew when I did this that most Obama supporters would reject what I have done. But as a Conservative, I’m fed up with the corruption in Washington. And I’m sick of the political correctness that has derailed our country! My art is an expression of the times in which I live and people will know how Jon McNaughton felt about being alive in America in 2012. Take the Challenge! If you still choose Obama, congratulations…you’re a part of the Obamanation. </p> <p>Reminder: Check out our Blog Feeds in the right column (Scroll to bottom).

A journalist friend of mine asked me to nose around and see if I could uncover anything about slain Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was rumored to be gay. A former “roommate” of Stevens by the name of Austin Tichenor lives and works in Chicago and while making calls to friends of mine in the theater world who know him I also thought to check some sources with the city who deal with the State Department and foreign dignitaries when they are in town. Of course, they’ve all been talking about Ambassador Stevens’ murder by Muslims in Libya: and all of them are incredulous that the State Department sent a gay man to be ambassador to a Muslim country. News reports continue to indicate that the Muslims who murdered Stevens also raped him repeatedly, before and after his death. I was told by friends in the City’s protocol office to go over to the Second Story Bar in downtown Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue, because it’s where a lot of gay guys who work for both the city and the consulates go after work. Chicago is home to a great number of consulates, including the Polish, Chinese, and Serbian consulates amongst others. I happened to luck out when the bartender working, who is a friend, tipped me off that a man in a suit talking to some other foreign-looking types worked at the Serbian consulate a few doors up the street towards the lake. Second Story Bar is literally on the second floor of a nondescript building whose ground level houses some sort of Thai restaurant. A psychic’s office is prominently advertised on the door leading to a steep flight of stairs and a blank green steel door that hides the tucked-away bar. The place has the feel of a speakeasy, with exposed bricks and battered plaster on the walls and an oddball collection of black and white photographs and pig-themed folk art scattered over drinkers’ heads in any exposed space. I’m forever perplexed that actual reporters don’t camp out in these sorts of places because great scoops are very easy to find if you just go in there and ask questions. The Serbian consulate employee identified himself to me as “Dino” and wouldn’t give me any more of a name than that, but told me it was no secret that Chris Stevens was gay and that “it was stupid to send him to Libya as the ambassador when he was a known homosexual”. Dino explained in great detail that the brutal sodomizing of Stevens’ corpse was something that Muslims do to show the “utmost disrespect to the body” and that this is “a great insult in Islam” reserved for homosexuals. ”It is like making him a woman in death and he will be a woman now after life” the Serbian explained to me. There’s a good chance this guy was Muslim too, and gay, which makes my head spin more than a little since he seemed to have no anger at all in his voice that Muslims in Libya assassinated the American ambassador and then sodomized his corpse. “He should not have gone there” was the general consensus from this man. You won’t hear any of this in the media, no doubt, but in Chicago’s diplomatic circles at least there is no doubt that Chris Stevens was gay and that pretty much anyone in the diplomatic world knew that. That includes the Libyans who were hired as security at the consulate in Benghazi who betrayed Ambassador Stevens and assisted in his murder. Meanwhile, the White House is ignoring the fact that a gay ambassador to a Muslim country was murdered and they are in fact still pretending that all of this is about some obscure movie about Muhammad and has nothing at all to do with Barack Obama repeatedly and vociferously spiking the football over killing Osama bin Laden (which took place all throughout the Democrats’ convention last week). People here in Chicago are very openly talking about Chris Stevens being gay…and yet he was sent to be the ambassador to Libya at a time when Muslims were toppling governments and introducing radical Islamists into power. </p> <p>Obama's 'Foreign Policy' Fiasco, Middle East On Fire! </p> <p>EDITORIAL: THE REGIME'S 'NAUSEATING BIG LIE' — ISLAMIST CRAZIES' EXPLOSION NOT ABOUT THAT DAMN STUPID VIDEO &quot;There is no rational justification for irrational mob violence,&quot; says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton who is emphatic that the anti-Islam video “Innocence of Muslims” is “disgusting.” This happens to be what most Americans feel about our flag being desecrated.

Corsi -- A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House. “It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan who was an openly gay gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator. “Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought he could possibly be president,” said DuJan. DuJan, founder and editor of the Hillary Clinton-supporting website HillBuzz.org told WND he has first-hand information from two different sources that “Obama was personally involved in the gay bar scene.” “If you just hang out at these bars, the older guys who have been frequenting these gay bars for 25 years will tell you these stories,” DuJan said. “Obama used to go to the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they said he was very much into older white guys.” Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, who worked with the National Security Agency from 1984 to 1988 as a Navy intelligence analyst, confirmed DuJan’s claims. “It is common knowledge in the Chicago gay community that Obama actively visited the gay bars and bathhouses in Chicago while he was an Illinois state senator,” Madsen told WND. WND also spoke with a member of the East Bank Club in Chicago, who confirmed Obama was a member there and was known to be a homosexual. The upscale fitness club says it has some 10,000 members, but it’s one of a number of places identified by the Chicago homosexual community as a “gay gym.” In April, WND reported a federal judge dismissed a libel case against Larry Sinclair, a homosexual who claimed Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign had paid to rig a polygraph test regarding Sinclair’s sensational charge that he had sex and used cocaine twice with Obama while Obama was an Illinois state senator. Sinclair tells his story in “Barack Obama &amp; Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies &amp; Murder.” WND also reported former radical activist John Drew has said that when he met Obama when Obama was a student at Occidental College, he thought Obama and his then-Pakistani roommate were “gay” lovers. In addition, rumors have swirled around Obama’s relationship with his personal aide and former “body man,” Reggie Love, who resurfaced on the eve of the Republican National Convention to support his old boss. Love resigned from the White House in November 2011 after compromising photographs of him as a college student received wide circulation. WND also has documented in two separate articles, here and here, that Obama wore a gold band on his wedding ring finger from the time he attended Occidental College through his student days at Harvard Law School. DuJan said that during Obama’s first presidential campaign, “there was fear in the gay community” about talking openly about Obama being homosexual, particularly after the murder in December 2007 of Donald Young, the openly gay choir director at , who was known to be a close friend of Obama. “People did not want to talk openly about Obama being gay,” he said. “Then, when we saw how Larry Sinclair was demonized, anybody who would expose Obama worried they would be silenced if they dared to speak the truth about Obama’s gay life,” DuJan said. </p> <p>‘Obama’s Secrets’ DuJan said he has been told “Obama’s secrets would have to come out just like John Edwards’ secrets came out.” He said Obama stopped going to gay bars and bathhouses in Chicago when he began running for the U.S. Senate in 2004. “Back then, Obama could walk around Chicago and people generally wouldn’t recognize him, even though he was a state senator in the Illinois assembly at the time,” DuJan said. DuJan insisted that while he’s a supporter of Hillary Clinton, he holds no personal animus toward Obama. He said he campaigned for Clinton in 2008 “because I had waited for years for her to be able to run.” “I opposed Obama not because I’m a racist, or that I hate Obama, I just knew the type of person Obama associated with in Chicago,” he said. He pointed to Obama’s association with convicted Chicago real estate magnate Tony Rezko, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Wright. “Obama was a dirty politician that the media never wanted to vet – that’s what concerned me about Obama,” Du Jan said. DuJan spoke further of his claims about Obama in an interview Monday night on Andrea Shea King’s show on BlogTalkRadio.com, which included questions from WND during the last half of the show. </p> <p>&quot;Man’s Country&quot; Madsen published an article in his Wayne Madsen Report in May 2010 claiming Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were members of the same bathhouse in Chicago. “President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bathhouse in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city,” Madsen wrote. He said the bathhouse, &quot;Man’s Country&quot; catered “to older men,” noting “it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago’s ‘grand old bathhouses.’” Madsen wrote his 2010 report after traveling to Chicago to interview bartenders and customers at several “gay” bars. DuJan gave WND a list of “gay” bars in Chicago where older customers hang out and tell stories about how Obama, prior to 2004, frequented visited to pick up men for sex, including several on Halstead Street, widely known as an “uber-gay Chicago street. Writing in HillBuzz.com Tuesday, DuJan said rooms at Man’s Country bathhouse are still referred to as the “presidential suite,” or the “Oral Office,” because “the current President used to haunt the place when he was a just another Illinois state senator that no one had ever heard of or cared about.” DuJan said he believes that, someday, “all of this is going to be as public knowledge as JFK’s affair with Marilyn Monroe and the other women he cavorted with while married to Jackie.” “Someday,” he said, “in the next 10-20 years, everyone will know all about Man’s Country, and the place will no doubt get a plaque of sometime commemorating that place as a gay hangout for the future leader of the free world.” </p> <p>Still think Obama isn't queer? Then watching this 'Gaydar Slide Show' should change your mind! </p> <p>Real Unemployment Rate Hits 11.7% As Spread Between Reported and Propaganda Data Hits Record But Horrendous Jobs Numbers Won’t Slow the ‘Rocket Man,' Tweets NBC's Luke Russert </p> <p>Today's reported unemployment rate: 8.1%. The reason: the labor &quot;participation&quot; dropped to a 31 year low 63.5% as reported earlier. Of course, this number is pure propaganda, and makes no sense for one simple reason: despite the economic collapse started in December 2007, the U.S. civilian non-institutional population since then has grown by 186,000 people every month on average hitting an all time high of 243,566,000 in August. These people need a job, and the traditional shorthand is that at least 100,000 jobs have the be generated every month for the unemployment rate to merely stay flat, let along improve. So what does one get when one uses the long-term average of the past 30 or so years which happens to be 65.8%? One gets an unemployment number that is 45% higher than the reported 8.1%, or 11.7%. That is what the real unemployment rate is assuming the U.S. labor participation rate was realistic and not manipulated by the BLS cronies and the Bank of Spain assisted Arima-X-13 seasonal adjustment models. It also means that, as the chart below shows, the spread between the real and propaganda data hit an all time record, which was to be expected two months ahead of America's &quot;bankers muppet&quot; presidential election. Obama's Four Years of Failure On Jobs Must End — By Romney! Jobs: A top White House economics spokesman cautions against reading too much into a single month of employment data — and we concur: One month isn't enough. So how about 44 months instead? 'Today's employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the Great Depression,&quot; Alan Krueger, chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, said on Friday. But no matter how the White House tries to spin it, August's jobs data, in perspective with the preceding 43 months, were terrible. Yes, unemployment came in at 8.1% — down from 8.3% the month before. But an improvement? Hardly. Unemployment has been above 8% for 43 straight months — a record. The only reason the jobless rate fell in August was 368,000 people left the labor force, pushing labor force participation down to a 31-year low of 63.5%. Some 23 million people either don't have jobs, are looking for full-time work or are underemployed. And the numbers are even worse than they look. As IBD points out on its front page today, if the labor force participation rate had remained constant during Obama's years in office, unemployment today would be about 11.1%. Some &quot;recovery.&quot; But what about the 96,000 new payroll jobs? That shows growth, right? Afraid not. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, speaking last month, said the U.S. must create &quot;150,000 to 200,000&quot; jobs a month just to keep the unemployment rate stable. So 96,000 is really an awful number for a &quot;recovery.&quot; The White House, during its convention, repeatedly claimed to have &quot;created&quot; 4.5 million jobs. Leaving aside the fact that businesses, not government, create jobs, it's still factually incorrect. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, payroll jobs in August totaled 133.3 million. The month Obama entered office, there were 133.561 million. So the number of jobs has shrunk. What really rankles, though, is that Obama and leading Democrats such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi contend the economy would be really humming if the GOP wasn't standing in the way. That's not what those representing real job-creators believe. &quot;Clearly the economic policies that have been implemented in Washington are failing,&quot; said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, commenting on August's data. The National Association of Manufacturers was even more specific: &quot;The way to alleviate our economic pain is by enacting pro-growth tax policies, addressing the tough questions on entitlement programs that drive our national debt and putting an end to the regulatory morass that weighs down businesses across the country.&quot; None of which, of course, is proposed by Obama. By the way, the Congressional Budget Office says that &quot;under current law&quot; — that is, budgets passed by a Democrat-dominated Congress and signed by Obama — unemployment will surge to 9.1% next year as the U.S. economy goes over the &quot;fiscal cliff&quot; and into recession. The president says he needs more time to turn America around. Looks like time just ran out. </p> <p>The Obama Presidential Library Is Heading For Hawaii! The Obamas Already Preparing for Move to Hawaii in January 2013 </p> <p>By Kevin DuJan -- Barack and Michelle Obama will be moving to Hawaii in January of 2013 and preparations are now being made to purchase an estate in close proximity to land owned by the University of Hawaii, where the Obama presidential library and “political center” will be located. Here in Chicago, it’s pretty obvious that Michelle does not want to move back to this city and its winters (for any reason) and Michelle’s mother, who’s been living in the White House with her daughter and her family, will be happily making the move to Hawaii as well. I have a friend whose family knows Michelle’s mother; they have been crystal clear that the elderly Mrs. Robinson regularly says that she’ll be in Hawaii next year permanently with her daughter and granddaughters. There is neither talk of returning to Chicago to live nor of living in the White House for another four years — instead, there’s a sense of “it was fun while it lasted” coming from Mrs. Robinson in her talks with her Chicago friends. Democrats are already working to locate an acceptable property in Hawaii for the Obamas to live; this land and its complex of buildings must be ready to move-into in January and must meet all the requirements the Secret Service demands since the Obamas will be granted continued protection, by law, for nine years after Barack leaves office. The Reagans, Clintons, and second Bush family all had their post-presidential homes purchased quietly on the side by friends when their times in office were coming to an end. The Obamas are doing the same thing now. They are not talking about building a complex on vacant land because there is not time for that. They will need a place to live come January, and they are not returning to their home in Chicago that was purchased with the help of convicted felon Tony Rezko. Chicago served its purpose in Obama’s life and moving back here provides him no additional benefits. As a former president, he’d always be the second most powerful man in a town where the Mayor of Chicago is essentially a feudal king. In Hawaii, the Obamas will hold court as a new royal family on the islands. Back in 2009, the University of Chicago showed interest in obtaining the Barack Obama Presidential Library and Museum (and Political Action Center) but all of that cooled when Chicago lost its ill-fated bid for the Olympics; those plans included the construction of parking garages and other support buildings that would have been centered around a temporary stadium that was meant to be demolished and replaced with the Obama Library Building. Valerie Jarrett, senior advisor to the President, purchased large tracts of tenement land near the proposed sites of all this construction hoping to cash in with a huge windfall when first the Olympics and then the Obama Library were supposed to be there. But neither of these things is coming to Chicago now. The University of Hawaii will host the Library, Musuem, and “Political Action Center”. Most likely, it will be called the Obama Center, like the Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Just like the Carters, the Obamas want to live as close to the Library complex as possible so Barack can hold court there, give speeches, and walk through a replica of his Oval Office to relive past glories (which is what Jimmy Carter does on a regular basis, FYI). This is pretty common for former presidents, actually. Both of the Bush families moved close to where their respective presidential libraries were built and the Reagans before them had a post-presidency life in close proximity to Ronald Reagan’s library. The Clintons are anomalous for not moving back to Arkansas and living in New York state instead. The Obamas will resume the tradition of the former president living in a new home purchased quietly by friends and allies in the last days of his presidency to be occupied immediately after he leaves office and begins the construction of his post-presidential office and archives of his administration. I’m not familiar with the real estate process in Hawaii, but I bet some of you who are industrious could start to look at transactions and available estates and note those that meet the following criteria for the Obamas’ new home: </p> <p>&#9824; must have gorgeous ocean views and a private beach &#9824; must be easily accessible via a short drive from an airfield, as Obama will want to travel a lot to give speeches in Jimmy Carter fashion after he leaves office &#9824; must contain a main house with at least six bedrooms (one for Barack, one for Michelle, one for Mrs. Robinson, and one for each of the daughters); ideally the estate will have a separate in-law suite for Mrs. Robinson as she’d like some privacy I’ve been told &#9824; must contain outbuildings for the secret service to occupy (as they will maintain a command center there for the family’s protection for nine years after he leaves office) &#9824; must not have any close neighbors (or if it’s adjacent to another property, there must be high fences and some kind of barrier between the properties) &#9824; must be easily accessible to a location where the University of Hawaii can maintain the Obama Library and Obama himself can work in his Obama Center </p> <p>That last one is the big clue to where you will find a spot for their new home…since Barack Obama will want to be able to commute easily to the “Obama Center”, wherever that is built. He’s a young-for-an-ex-president man, so he’s got a good 40 years ahead of him to make use of that Obama Center when it’s built…and I imagine he wouldn’t want to drive any further to it every day than Jimmy Carter does to the Carter Center in Atlanta. Where’s a good location that the University of Hawaii would want to build his library, so that it becomes a tourist attraction for Hawaii and also afford the University the Prestige of having it on a campus? The University will be picking up a lot of the cost of the Library’s construction as private fundraising for this project has thus far been anemic. In Chicago, Penny Pritzker has already started making soft calls to inquire if people would be willing to be generous to the Obama presidential library project and she’s gotten mostly polite declines (and some hang-ups). Someone who works for Penny told me that. Figure out where the University of Hawaii could build this, and you’ll figure out the radius of a 20-30 minute drive (at most) for where the Obamas will have their next home starting in January of 2013. Also keep an eye on architect Frank Gehry’s activities. The Pritzker family funded the Pritzker Pavillion in Millennium Park in Chicago, which Gehry designed. He’s the architect that designs buildings to look like crumpled paper that has been wadded up into a ball and placed on a pedestal. The idea for the Obama Library building is for it to resemble the US Constitution as crumpled into a ball during Obama’s term in office. Frank Gehry will design it, Penny Pritzker will spearhead the fundraising for it, and the Obamas will be living very close to where it will be built in Hawaii. The clues are there…now we just need to figure out where this will be. It’s a place I doubt I’d ever want to visit, but it’s not sitting well with Chicagoans here on the ground that it’s not being built in Illinois because without the Chicago political machine Obama would not have gotten to where he is. But now that he’s there, and will be leaving the White House soon…there’s no more need for Chicago or Chicagoans. Hawaii, here they come! Michelle Obama Is All Smiles, Ecstatic with Her New $35 Million Hawaiian Estate </p> <p>The above photo shows the courtyard of the Obamas' new beachfront estate on the island of Oahu in a part of Hawaii called “Kailua.” The interior of the main home is a sprawling 8,419 square feet, with another 5,359 square feet of lanai area. With five bedrooms, five baths, two powder rooms, and a professional media/movie room, you can find your own piece of privacy within this private estate. The estate was designed to replicate similar properties that were constructed in the early 1900s, with just the two structures and nearly 240 feet of grass and extensive landscaping to provide privacy. Michelle Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, has been bragging about getting to live in Hawaii next, in a $35 million beachfront mansion after leaving the White House in January 2013. &quot;It was fun while it lasted,&quot; Miss Marian is quoted by Chicagoans as saying, &quot;but wait until you see the place they're buying for Michelle and Barack!&quot; Penny Pritzker and other extremely wealthy Chicagoans are currently in the process of acquiring the estate for the Obamas. Pritzker, who is the heiress to the Hyatt Hotels fortune, escaped several financial investigations related to her involvement in a banking scandal because she’s been Barack Obama’s “money woman” since his 2008 fundraising campaign. Just as he quashed investigations of Black Panthers involved in voter intimidation in the 2008 election, it seems Attorney General Eric Holder tabled any exploration of possible wrongdoing by Obama’s “money woman” in the banking mess. </p> <p>Obama Was Elected in Large Measure to Assuage 'White Guilt' — Now Will Voters Reelect Obama to Assuage Their 'Homophobic Guilt'? The Return of Obama's 'Body Man' — Reggie Love Resurfaces on Eve of Republican Convention </p> <p>By Jerome Corsi -- The former personal aide to Barack Obama known as the president’s “body man,” Reggie Love, resurfaced on the eve of the Republican National Convention to support his old boss. Hired as Obama’s “deputy political director,” the Duke University basketball and football star was the constant companion of the president for two years before resigning last November. The White House explained Love had decided to pursue further studies at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, but the Internet, at the time, was abuzz with speculation that Love was dismissed because of the wide circulation of compromising photographs of him when he was a college student. The photos purported to show a heavily inebriated Love surrounded by fellow students assisting him in engaging in a homosexual act at a party on the rival University of North Carolina campus. In the interview with CNN Monday, Love portrayed Obama as a cool-headed leader who doesn’t let problems ruffle him. “I think it looks like he’s really, really calm all the time and nothing gets under his skin, but I think from an efficiency standpoint, you know, you can cry about the call or you can look to the next play,” Love told CNN. “And if you spend your time crying about the call, usually you, you miss the next play. And then … instead of having one bad play, now you have two.” Today, the Drudge Report – which has toyed with headlines, photos and page placement over the years that give the impression Love was something more than a presidential assistant – linked to the story with the headline: “Reggie Love Speaks: Obama leads like he plays … ” The headline was positioned above a story about former Florida Republican Gov. Charlie Crist’s key speaking role at the upcoming Democratic National Convention. The link was illustrated with a photo of Obama and Crist in which they appear to be preparing to kiss. The embarrassing photos of Love as a college student have appeared and disappeared with regularity on various websites over the past year. Earlier this month,when Obama asked Love to join the U.S. official delegation to the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics, reunion photos of Obama and Love showed them “fist bumping” in the Oval Office – a practice Love supposedly introduced to Obama. </p> <p>Who is Reggie Love? Love, a graduate of Duke University with a B.A. in political science and public policy, started working in 2006 in a low-level staff position in then-Sen. Obama’s office after failing NFL tryouts with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys in 2004 and 2005. In 2007, just before Obama’s presidential primary campaign was launched, Love moved up to assume the position of “personal assistant” to the candidate, a role typically dubbed as a “body man,” responsible for up-close and personal contact with Obama on virtually a 24-7 basis. As the New York Times reported, the job required anything from carrying Obama’s coat or briefcase, to providing him “cool” Jay-Z music for his iPod, to sneaking off to the gym and playing basketball. In April 2009, Love won the Huffington Post’s “Who’s the White House’s hottest employee?” contest. In January 2009, ESPN dubbed Love “Chief of Stuff” in an article that featured the following personal commentary: Love walks in Obama’s shadow for about 18 hours a day, anticipating all his needs. He wakes up Obama around dawn, works out with him in the morning, answers his cell phone during the day and hangs out with him at night. Much of the time, he carries a black duffle bag stuffed with any drugstore item Obama could possibly need, including mouthwash, Wetnaps, aspirin, Nicorette and ballpoint pens. If the presumptive nominee were to spill something on his tie moments before a nationally televised debate, Love would rescue him with Tide stain remover. Love played on the 2001 Duke University basketball team that won the NCAA national championship. He was suspended the following year, however, for a drunk-driving incident in which he did not receive a citation because his blood alcohol measured just below the level of legal intoxication. A further indiscretion with alcohol proved more costly. </p> <p>Was it the photos? The embarrassing photographs first gained wide circulation March 16, 2009, when the blog Booker Rising, a self-described “news site for black moderates and black conservatives,” linked to them. Three photographs of the incident began appearing and disappearing on various Internet websites. Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, writing in his subscription-only newsletter on Nov. 14, 2011,, suggested that in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State, the photos of Love as a Duke student were too much for the White House: The fallout from Penn State has universities and colleges across the nation checking their records for indications of child abuse and other scandals. … Past gay-oriented sex parties at Duke and the University of North Carolina involving then Duke basketball and football player Reggie Love reportedly cost him his job as President Obama’s ‘body man.’ De facto White House chief of staff Pete Rouse, upon hearing of potential problems regarding Love at Duke and UNC and on the heels of the scandal at Penn State, forced Love to leave the White House staff immediately, even over the objections of Obama. When Love departed, Obama was quoted in a statement issued by the White House saying, “Over the years, Reggie has been a friend, a teammate and an indispensible member of my staff.” Obama said Love’s “ability to juggle so many responsibilities with so little sleep has been an inspiration to watch.” “He is the master of what he does,” Obama said. “And even though I will miss seeing Reggie every day, I want to thank him for his service and wish him all the best as he begins a new chapter in his career.” Meanwhile, HillBuzz.org, a website founded and edited by former Hillary Clinton campaign volunteer Kevin DuJan, challenged the White House’s explanation for Love’s departure. DuJan, an openly gay man who is now a tea party activist, has an ongoing 4-part series on his website devoted to the question “Is Barack Obama Gay?” On Nov. 10, 2011, DuJan published the following under the title “BIZARRE: White House releases statement on breakup of Barack Obama and his boyfriend Reggie Love”: The White House today issued a historic and unprecedented press release – where a male President of the United States has announced his breakup with a male staffer and longtime lover. In the press release, the term ‘body man’ is used instead of ‘boyfriend,’ ‘lover’, ‘paramour’, ‘special friend’, ‘f***buddy’, or all sorts of other appropriate vocabulary. But if you’re someone who hasn’t been in a coma for the last couple of years, you know the real deal. As WND reported, speculation about Obama’s sexuality has roiled beneath the radar of establishment media, fed, among other things, by Larry Sinclair's sensational claims of cocaine-fueled homosexual acts with Obama in Chicagoand reports of Obama’s “transgender nanny” in Indonesia. </p> <p>These Hands Tell the Story of Obama's Same-Sex Love Affair Why so many fingers on Chandoo's knee? Eureka! We've had this 1980 photo for 3 years now, and the other day we noticed that Barack and Chandoo are affectionately holding hands. In plain view is compelling evidence they were queer lovers. Fellow Occidental student John Drew thought that Obama and the wealthy Pakistani roommate Mohammed Hasan Chandoo were homosexual lovers. We now know his observation was accurate. </p> <p>John Drew, a former radical activist from Occidental College who has recounted a 1980 encounter in which Obama affirmed revolutionary Marxist views, told WND in an interview his strong impression at the time was that Obama and the wealthy Pakistani roommate who accompanied him were homosexual lovers. Drew, who founded the Marxist-socialist club at Occidental to which Obama belonged, said he met the future president in December 1980 when Drew was a 23-year-old second-year graduate student at Cornell University. Obama, a 19-year-old sophomore at Occidental at the time, was with diminutive Pakistani roommate Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, . “I really had the feeling that Obama was Chandoo’s ‘boy toy,’” Drew told WND. Drew, who earned a Ph.D. from Cornell, is an award-winning political scientist who taught political science and economics at Williams College. In previously published accounts of his meeting –dating from the 2008 presidential campaign – Drew made clear his conclusion that Obama and Chandoo were both Marxist revolutionaries. Contrary to Drew, who remarked he was not as radical as Obama, Obama believed a violent, communist revolution was coming to the U.S. In the interview with WND, Drew focused on his suspicion the two were romantically involved. “The first time I saw Barack Obama and Hassan Chandoo together, I thought they were a wealthy gay couple,” Drew said. “In fact, they looked so gay that my girlfriend, Caroline Boss, whispered to me, ‘They’re not gay.’ So, that confirmed to me I wasn’t the only one who thought Barack Obama and Hassan Chandoo looked like they were in a very close, intimate relationship.” Drew admitted he was confused about Chandoo’s sexuality, considering it possible the Pakistani was bisexual, especially after he learned Occidental classmate Margo Mifflin was Chandoo’s girlfriend at the time. “I remembered Mifflin from my senior year at Occidental when we had both participated in various protest events on campus,” Drew commented. “I had the impression that Mifflin was living with Chandoo and Obama in Chandoo’s apartment in Pasadena.” Drew told WND he was not aware at the time of his 1980 meeting that Obama was wearing a gold-band ring on the wedding ring finger of his left hand. He first learned of it in two articles WND published showing Obama was wearing the ring from his years at Occidental College, from 1979 to 1981, through 1990, when a satirical issue of the Harvard Law Review referred to it. </p> <p>Obama's 'Down-Low' Underworld Why won’t the agenda-driven media report on Barack Obama being gay, sexually harassing male actor Kal Penn, and frequenting Chicago bathhouse Man’s Country At left is Obama's original 'body man' Nick Colvin who was sent packing when reports came out that he was involved in sexual relations with then Senator and presidential candidate Obama. In middle, American actor Kal Penn who worked in the White House just a few months (in a position that was created solely for him) until President Obama and his down-low boyfriend Kal must have broken up. And let's not forget Donald Young, Trinity Church's gay choir director who was murdered a couple of weeks before Obama announced his presidential run. </p> <p>Readers have asked if we know of any other former gay lovers, so we've added three more. (Left) Michael Signator is a 53-year-old Chicago cop who has served as Obama's driver and body man. (Middle) Alex Okrent was a 29-year-old campaign worker who died July 13th after collapsing at Obama's Chicago campaign headquarters. His death raised suspicions after his autopsy said the cause of death was inconclusive. (Right) Bobby Titcomb is a close friend and frequent golfing pal who was arrested last year for solicitation of prostitution. </p> <p>By Kevin DuJan (Openly gay writer for Hillbuzz.org) -- This week, let’s all talk about Democrat President Barack Obama being gay, him sexually harassing male actor Kal Penn, and his frequenting of Chicago gay bathhouse Man’s Country — using the Left’s established precedent for journalistic integrity when it comes to rumor and gossip. Fair’s fair, right — in love, politics, and what’s apparently allowable in the 2012 election now that all-out war was declared on the black Republican presidential contender. Why shouldn’t conservatives treat Barack Obama the way the Left treated Herman Cain? If the operating assumption is that anything whispered about by anonymous sources is true about Herman Cain, then I guess everything people in Chicago have talked about for years related to Barack Obama being a closeted gay man into younger Pakistani guys must be true too, right? During the 2008 election, I campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primaries. Repeatedly, I heard over and over here in Chicago that Barack Obama is gay and that his marriage to Michelle is one of mutual convenience. In the black community, this is called “being on the down-low”, where a closeted gay male weds an often-times gruff and demanding woman (typically without other male suitors of her own) to take public scrutiny off them both and afford the pair a successful life they’d never achieve separately. There are, apparently, a lot of such relationships forged at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago — where Barack Obama’s pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, oversaw the coupling of down-low gay black men with sour and caustic black women. This apparently happens not just in Chicago at Trinity United, but in black communities all over the country. Author Terry McMillen and talking-head Star Jones married down-low gay men to benefit their careers and help their public image too. Black women who marry gay black men are lavished with all the social perks these marriages of convenience afford them, while the men get to go off together on “camping trips”, to “basketball games out of town”, or to other “social events” where they can engage in gay activity with one another secure in the knowledge that no one in the Reverend Wright’s “down-low club” would rat the other fellas out. You need to understand how much homosexuality is despised in the black community to appreciate both the need for gay black men to stay “down-low” and the willingness of some black women to become “beards” for these men when they think they can benefit from the arrangement in some way themselves (usually because these are difficult-to-deal-with women who were unable to find anyone willing to marry them otherwise). Oprah Winfrey and her longtime “boyfriend” Stedman Graham were for many years also members of Trinity United Church of Christ, and you can read whatever you may like into that. In Chicago’s Boystown gay community, older guys who frequented the little dive bars that have been around forever told tales back in the 2008 primaries about Barack Obama slipping out whenever he was in Chicago for romps at the local bathhouse “Man’s Country”. The details given in these accounts of his activities were substantial. Apparently, he went most often to this Andersonville neighborhood bathhouse on Wednesdays, and while there he was rumored to seek oral sex from older white men. According to the gossip, Barack Obama would never reciprocate in these encounters, but enjoyed being pleasured by older white guys. Evidently, he is not a giver and is something of a selfish bathhouse regular when not being the current President of the United States. This jives with everything Larry Sinclair said about his own sexual encounter with Barack Obama in the back of a limo many years ago. You remember Larry Sinclair, right? He’s the man the agenda-driven media worked overtime to destroy and did its level best to silence because he posed a direct threat to the narrative the Left needed to push for Barack Obama to elect him president — and needless to say, that narrative didn’t include Barack Obama receiving oral sex from another man in the back of a limo in Chicago. You need to appreciate that when a Democrat is accused of anything, the Democrat’s accusers are crucified with remarkable zeal in the press; but when someone whispers anything obscene about a Republican, that person is lauded by the “journalists” of the Left as the bravest and most credible person who ever lived…even if that person refuses to give her name, actually state on record what she claimed happened, or provide any sort of corroborating evidence that what she’s alleging is in any way remotely true. To the media, it’s true just because it was said about a Republican. Meanwhile, Democrats can always get away with murder. Just ask the Kennedy family about that. Clearly, we saw this Leftist double-standard (or, non-standard, as the case may be) applied to the mystery woman Politico sourced as Herman Cain’s sexual harassment accuser last week. So, why can’t we all talk about Barack Obama dating Hollywood actor Kal Penn during the 2008 presidential campaign, and Obama then inventing a strange, nebulous position for the actor in the early days of the Obama administration (just so Penn could abruptly leave his hit TV show and move to Washington to be close to Obama?). Apparently, since Penn then left the White House abruptly after just a few months of work (in a position that was created solely for him) the current President and his down-low boyfriend must have broken up. Did Barack Obama sexually harass his subordinate, Kal Penn, in the brief time he worked in the Obama White House? You can speculate about what went wrong between these lovebirds while you’re watching the new Harold &amp; Kumar movie or eating at White Castle. Because, let’s face it, if there was an (R) after Barack Obama’s name this whole affair with Penn would have been nonstop “news” since 2009…instead of the pervasive sound of chirping crickets we got because Barack Obama’s a (D) — which stands for “down-low”, don’t you know. Why shouldn’t this week be all about talking about Barack Obama being gay and having sexual misadventures with men, since if it was a Republican president there’s no doubt the agenda-driven media would have been all over this story, regardless of who, if anyone, would go on record to confirm any of it. You know full well the “journalists” on sites like Politico would have spent the last three years digging relentlessly into a Republican president’s past, repeatedly asking why not a single former girlfriend has ever stepped forward to identify herself or speak on the record about her past with the man currently in the Oval Office. Isn’t it strange that the public’s never been introduced to A SINGLE GIRLFRIEND that Barack Obama ever had in high school, college, law school, or the days before he met his &quot;beard wife&quot; Michelle? Don’t you wonder why the “journalists” of the Left have never done any in-depth profiles of Barack Obama’s male friends from his years at Occidental College in California, talked about his “roommate” while at Columbia, or wondered about any of his social activities through the years? I know there are endless mysteries centered around a man whose college transcripts, vital records, and other important paperwork were apparently sealed away from the public in an impregnable vault somewhere cloaked in riddles and enigma — never to be seen by human eyes again — but if Barack Obama was a Republican he would have been outed as gay many years ago. If Barack Obama was a Republican, the agenda-driven media would have hounded him about the nature of his relationship with his “bodyman” Reggie Love. If Barack Obama was a Republican, the Left would have somehow gotten ahold of his lifetime membership at Chicago gay bathhouse Man’s Country and would have plastered those records across Politico to destroy his political career. If Barack Obama was a Republican, the press would have quickly interpreted the dearth of girlfriends in his past as evidence of a surfeit of boyfriends and no one at the New York Times would have slept a wink until every Tom, Dick, or Larry in Barack Obama’s little black book was awarded his own reality show to gush about their down-low adventures. But, Barack Obama is not a Republican, so the agenda-driven media provides him enormous and constant spin to conceal his gay past. It’s really very reminiscent of the old days in the studio system, where PR agents worked aggressively to hide the fact that men like Rock Hudson, Montgomery Clift, Tab Hunter, and even Liberace himself were gay…because the media had a vested interest in these men’s success and it wasn’t on the agenda to expose the truth about them. Instead, the media was complicit in selling the public a mutually beneficial fantasy. Barack Obama is gayer than Liberace, but you’ll never read about that on Politico — just as you’ll never read about him chain-smoking in the White House, his rampant drug abuse during his twenties and thirties, or the fact he got all Ds and Fs in college (produce his transcripts and prove me wrong on that one). Because Barack Obama is a Democrat, the agenda-driven media is as committed to promoting a heterosexual, scandal-free image for him, because this is what “journalists” are apparently trained to do for Democrats in school…and it’s expected for them to do if they wish to keep being employed as “journalists” in the Democrat public relations machine we call the media in this country. Someday, when the Left no longer needs Barack Obama to push the Left’s agenda, this protection will be gone and you’ll spend the last few decades of your life hearing all about Larry Sinclair, Kal Penn, Reggie Love, Man’s Country, Jeremiah Wright’s Down-Low Club, and the many men Barack Obama has been with through the years. I’m sure a great many books will be written on all of this and a great deal of money will be made by the media companies selling the scandal of it all to the public. But, for now Barack Obama is the Left’s guy, so he’s getting the full-on Rock Hudson/Liberace protection treatment. While, of course, opponents of the Left such as Herman Cain are relentlessly attacked with unsubstantiated sexual innuendo in the agenda-driven media’s nonstop effort to discredit and destroy anyone who poses a real threat to Obama’s grasp on power. If you don’t see what’s really happening here and are someone who’s quick to believe the anonymous and sketchy sources the likes of Politico put forward when it comes to a Republican in the hot seat…then maybe you should spend today coming up with a valid reason for why YOU can’t name a single girlfriend Barack Obama had in his entire life before Michelle and why so much of Barack Obama’s past is so aggressively cloaked in perpetual and deliberate mystery. </p> <p>PS — If you ever wonder why Republicans don’t just out Barack Obama themselves, you need to really think about how the Cocktail Party GOP establishment actually works. There are currently at least two closeted gay sitting Republican United States Senators. There are several closeted gay sitting Republican Congressmen. All of these men are forever praised in the media for being “bipartisan”, which means they conveniently sell out conservative voters whenever the Left needs them to. I am 100% convinced there’s blackmail afoot in this, with the quid pro quo being these men get to remain sitting Senators and Congressmen so long as they keep folding whenever Democrats need “bipartisan” votes across the aisle. It’s no coincidence the closeted gay Republicans are all Cocktail Party GOP establishment types who are more interested in maintaining their own hold on power than ever bucking the system and doing what’s best for this country and their own constituents. It’s an open secret in the political world that Barack Obama is gay, and that there are plenty of closeted gay Republicans too. But you won’t hear about any of this because members of the permanent political class on both sides of the aisle don’t want you to hear about it. AND they all think you are too stupid to ever figure this stuff out on your own. Even though all the clues are really obvious and sitting RIGHT THERE if you really wanted to piece it together without the media’s help. </p> <p>Amazingly, Romney’s 'Bain Capital' Saved Memorial Site of 0bama’s First Kiss 3,000 pound granite marker in Chicago's Hyde Park marks location of their first kiss. </p> <p>Bain Capital, the investment firm that Mitt Romney made famous, made a leveraged buyout that saved the site of Barack Obama and Larry Sinclair's first kiss. In 2005, Bain and two other private equity firms purchased Dunkin’ Brands Incorporated for $2.425 billion, according to a 2006 company press release. Dunkin’ Brands is the parent company of Baskin-Robbins, at whose Hyde Park, Chicago location the president and Larry Sinclair went on their first date in Sinclair's hired party limosine — and shared their first lip lock. A 3,000-pound granite boulder now occupies the corner of Dorchester and 53rd Street, outside the ice cream parlor, bearing a quote about the couple’s first date. “On our first date, I treated him to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed him, and it tasted like chocolate,” the inscription states. Larry Sinclair’s Detailed Remembrance of Drug Use and Homosexual Sex with then-Senator Obama TRANSCRIPT: Larry Sinclair Press Conference: &quot;I flew out of Colorado Springs, Colorado to Chicago on November 2, 1999, arriving in O’Hare early in the morning of November 3, 1999. I went to the Chicago area to attend the graduation of my god son (my best friend’s son) from basic training from the Great Lakes Navy Training Facility. I made reservations at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Gurnee, IL based on location to the Navy Training center. On November 5, 1999, I hired the services of Five Star Limo. I had hired them for both November 5th and November 6th. On November 6, of 1999, I asked the limo driver – whose name I now reveal for the first time – Jagir Paramjit Multani, if he knew anyone who would like to socialize and show me Chicago. One note, there is a typo in the statement that you’ll get at the end of this statement, we will put an updated and corrected version on our website, that you will be also given access to, as far as the name is concerned. Mr. Multani understood that I was not looking for someone who knew Chicago and would enjoy socializing. Mister Multani said he knew someone who was a friend of his. On November 6, 1999 after picking me up at the Hotel in Gurnee – and this is significant – Mr. Multani used his cellphone to make a call. That call was made to then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama to set up an introduction between me and Senator Obama. Upon arriving at the bar and exiting the Limo, Senator Obama was standing next to Mr. Multani and I was introduced to Senator Obama. Later that evening at a bar which I believe was called Alibis, and I state believe which I failed so far to get Citi Group to provide the credit card receipts which has the actual name. I mention I could use a line or two to wake up. Senator Obama asked me if I was referring to “coke” and I stated I was, Obama stating I was, Obama states he could purchase cocaine for me and then made a telephone call – and this too is significant — from his cellphone to a presently unknown individual during which Senator Obama arranged the cocaine purchase. Senator Obama and I then departed the bar in my limousine and proceeded to an unknown location where Senator Obama exited the limousine with two hundred fifty dollars and exited the limosine which was provided to him by me. Returned a short while later with an “eightball” of cocaine which he gave to me. I did ingest a couple of lines of cocaine, and shortly thereafter Senator Obama produced a glass cylinder pipe and packet of crack cocaine from his pocket and then Obama smoked the crack cocaine. I performed fellatio on Senator Obama in the limousine during the time Senator Obama was smoking crack cocaine, after which I had the driver take me to the my hotel, The Comfort Suites, Gurnee, Illinois. The following day, November 7, 1999, Senator Obama appeared at my hotel room, ununounced, uninvited where we again ingested cocaine and I again performed fellatio on Senator Obama.&quot; Barack Obama-Larry Sinclair Press Conference Pt 1 (9:54) /|\ Barack Obama-Larry Sinclair Press Conference Pt 2 (9:57) VIEW MORE Larry Sinclair VIDEOS /|\ READ &quot;Citizen Wells&quot; background account of Larry Sinclair's accusations </p> <p>Where Barack Met Larry: a grassroots campaign to historically mark 0bama’s gay hot spots in Chicago By Kevin DuJan -- Yesterday, the Chicago Tribune ran a rather strange story documenting a “historic marker” that was recently installed at the Dorchester Commons Shopping Center in the Hyde Park area of Chicago to commemorate the spot where Barack and Michelle Obama allegedly shared “their first kiss”. According to the article, the current U.S. president later claimed his future wife “tasted like chocolate”. No doubt if David Bowie ever said something like that about his wife Iman, he’d be pilloried as the most racist of racists ever. My good friend Megan Fox and I have decided to launch a grassroots campaign for a series of similar “historic markers” that we think should be installed around Chicagoland, commemorating other kisses Barack Obama had with additional people in his life…people such as Larry Sinclair, the man that Barack Obama had a wild sexual romp with back when he was still an Illinois state senator. Mid-America Asset Management owns that shopping center in Hyde Park where the first Obama “historic marker” was installed so we’ll probably ask them how they went about doing that. No doubt they have a bigger budget than HillBuzz &amp; Mrs. Fox, but Megan’s two daughters have agreed to lend us some of their construction paper, Disney princess stickers, and glitter so perhaps we’ll have a Craft Day and make “historic markers” (using Crayola markers) to commemorate the exact spot in Gurnee, Illinois “where Barry met Larry” and the two began their two-day, gay sexual affair. I sense a glitter bomb in our immediate future. I also think there needs to be a “historic marker” affixed to &quot;Man’s Country&quot; Bathhouse up in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, as well — since Barack Obama frequented this men-only sexual hotspot in the late 90s up until January of 2004 when he embarked on his campaign for the United States Senate. Apparently, he went there most often on Wednesdays. If you spend any time in the seedier gay bars of Chicago, where the older guys tend to hang out who were around in the scene back when Obama was cruising and they still had relatively healthy livers, you’ll hear them refer to the little rooms at Man’s Country as “presidential suites”, presumably because the current U.S. president used to allow old, white men to perform sexual acts on him there (the “Oral Offices” is another popular riff on this theme). Though, maybe they’re really saying “sweets” and Obama just went to Man’s Country to reverse-trick-or-treat and give away candy there to the towel-clad or nude patrons (which could be an obscure tradition in Indonesia similar to eating dogs, which Obama described in one of those books he had ghostwritten back in the day). The East Bank Club in downtown Chicago needs a “historic marker” of its own because that’s where Obama used to hook up with affluent, older, white men in the steam room as late as June of 2008 when he was running for the presidency. It appears he achieved commemorative-plaque-worthy activities there on June 29th, 2008 (the day of the Chicago Pride Parade, which Obama refused to march in) when he was supposedly playing basketball there and “having a steam” before heading over to Hyde Park to get his hair done. That’s seriously what his official schedule was for that last Sunday in June of 2008 instead of participating in the largest LGBTQAI event in the Midwest (though neither the media nor the “gay community” has ever said boo about this slight). Editor's Note for those not following this &quot;gender identity&quot; crap: LGBTQIA is an acronym that stands for gay, genderqueer, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, questioning, queer, intersex, ally and asexual. This acronym is also commonly written as GLBT, LGBT, and other variations. Although it is problematic, some people use the words gay or queer to mean &quot;LGBTQIA.&quot; If you're confused as we are, go to Trans-Academics.org] </p> <p>And ladies, if your husband ever puts on his schedule that he’s “having a steam” you better be similarly “having yourself a reality check” lest you want some commemorative plaques in your own future. Plaques should probably go up in the places where Barack Obama first kissed Reggie Love (his “body man”), Nick Colwin (a former “body man”), Alex Okrent (who mysteriously died in July and whose “autopsy was inconclusive”), and Kal Penn (who left his TV show “House” to move to DC and work in the White House in a position Obama had personally created just for him). If you have any ideas about where other Obama “historic markers” should go, please chime in below and if there’s enough construction paper and glitter we’ll probably get to them too. Newsweek outed Barack Obama as the first gay president earlier this year and since precedent has now been set that “historic markers” are required for the spots where Obama first kissed various people, gender equality requires that we mark not only the places where he allegedly kissed females but where he also first locked lips with assorted men. If Obama claims his wife “tasted like chocolate” and that’s important information to put on a plaque in Hyde Park then we as a nation need to find out what Larry Sinclair tasted like to Obama in Gurnee, Illinois so we can put that on a commemorative plaque too. Raspberry? I don’t know why, but there’s just something about Larry that makes me think he’d taste like raspberries. Can’t wait for Obama’s first post-presidential book to come out so I can be sure. Editor's Note: If you find the above piece from HillBuzz.org, a plugged-in gay site, interesting; perhaps you're ready for the more sordid background information on Barack 0bama.] Obama and Emanuel: Members of Same Gay Bath House in Chicago! President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city. The bath house, &quot;Man’s Country&quot;, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago’s “grand old bathhouses.” WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year “lifetime” memberships to paying customers and that the club’s computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to “Man’s Country” believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel. Members of Man’s Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry. Obama began frequenting Man’s Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Man’s Country after he left the Clinton White House and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor. Continued &gt;&gt; </p> <p>&quot;2016: 0bama’s America&quot; — Anti-0bama Movie #1 Box Office Smash Hit The anti-0bama documentary based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of 0bama’s Rage” expanded nationwide on Friday — with early first-place showings in the domestic box office rankings, Deadline Hollywood reports. As of late Friday afternoon, “2016: 0bama's America” had grossed $700,000 from 1,090 theaters. That compared with $300,000 for the new big-budget, Sylvester Stallone action flick “The Expendables 2,” which is playing in 3,355 theaters. The early showing puts 0bama’s America on track to gross $1.2 million to $1.7 million on Friday alone, with as much as $3.7 million to $5 this weekend, according to Deadline Hollywood. Exhibitors reported that busloads of filmgoers arriving at theaters to see 0bama’s America in pre-organized trips. The film’s producer, Rocky Mountain Pictures, used the same marketing approach to build audiences for many of its faith-based films. Its efforts included advertising nationally over the past two weeks on talk radio and cable news channels. Last weekend, 0bama’s America grossed $1.2 million in select markets, including New York City, and had a total gross of $2.1 million from a total of 169 theaters. The low-budget film features author D’Souza outlining facts to assist viewers in gaining an understanding of the apparent motivations behind a number of President Barack 0bama’s policies. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax last week, D’Souza said that 0bama’s policies are unmaking the American Dream. “Between 2007 and the present, Americans have lost about 40 percent of our wealth. Forty percent. If that happens again, if we lose another 40 percent in the second 0bama term, if there is a second 0bama term, Americans will be two thirds poorer than they were when 0bama came to office,” he told Newsmax. “In a way, America will stop being a first-world country.” So far, “2016” is the second-best gross of the year for a documentary after “Bully” ($3.2 million), but that list excludes the nature documentaries “Chimpanzee” ($29 million) and “To the Arctic” ($7.6 million).The documentary opened last month and is already the 12th-highest-grossing political documentary of all time. It also is the No. 2 conservative documentary after “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” ($7.7 million). The aggressive expansion of 0bama's America, co-directed by D'Souza and John Sullivan, was set to coincide with next week's Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Thomas Sowell: Review of a 'Powerful Movie' By Thomas Sowell -- Years, and sometimes decades, pass between my visits to movie theaters. But I drove 30 miles to see the movie &quot;2016: 0bama's America,&quot; based on Dinesh D'Souza's best-selling book, &quot;The Roots of 0bama's Rage.&quot; Where I live is so politically correct that such a movie would not even be mentioned, much less shown. Every seat in the theater was filled, even though there had been an earlier showing that day, and more showings were scheduled for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I had to sit on a staircase in the balcony, but it was worth it. The audience was riveted. You could barely hear a sound from them, or detect a movement, and certainly not smell popcorn. Yet the movie had no bombast, no violence, no sex and no spectacular visual effects. The documentary itself was fascinating, as Dinesh D'Souza presented the story of Barack 0bama's life and view of the world, in a very conversational sort of way, illustrating it with visits to people and places around the world that played a role in the way 0bama's ideas and beliefs evolved. It was refreshing to see how addressing adults as adults could be effective, in an age when so many parts of the media address the public as if they were children who need a constant whirlwind of sounds and movements to keep them interested. Dinesh D'Souza's own perspective, as someone born in India who came to America and became an American, provided a special insight into the way people from the Third World often perceive or misperceive the United States and the Western world. That Third World perspective is 0bama's perspective, D'Souza demonstrates in this documentary, as in his book — and it is a perspective that is very foreign to that of most Americans, which may be why some believe that 0bama was born elsewhere. D'Souza is convinced that the president was born in Hawaii, as he claims, but argues that not only 0bama's time living in Indonesia and his emotionally charged visits to his father's home in Africa, have had a deep and impassioned effect on his thinking.The story of Barack 0bama, however, is not just the story of how one man came to be the way he is. It is a much larger story about how millions of Americans came to vote for, and some to idolize, a man whose fundamental beliefs and values are so different from their own. For every person who sees 0bama as somehow foreign there are many others who see him as a mainstream American political figure — and an inspiring one. This D'Souza attributes to Barack 0bama's great talents in rhetoric, and his ability to project an image that resonates with most Americans, however much that image may differ from, or even flatly contradict, the reality of 0bama's own ideological view of the world. What is that ideological view? The Third World, or anti-colonial, view is that the rich nations have gotten rich by taking wealth from the poor nations. It is part of a much larger vision, in which the rich in general have gotten rich by taking from the poor, whether in their own country or elsewhere. Whatever its factual weaknesses, it is an emotionally powerful vision, to which many people have dedicated their lives, and for which some have even risked their lives. Some of these people appear in this documentary movie, as they have appeared throughout the formative phases of Barack 0bama's life. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright is just the most visible and vocal of a long line of such people who played crucial roles in 0bama's evolution. When Jeremiah Wright thundered about how &quot;white folks' greed runs a world in need,&quot; he captured the essence of the Third World or anti-colonial vision. But many of the other mentors, allies, family and friends of Barack 0bama over the years were of the same mindset, as this documentary demonstrates. More important, the movie &quot;2016&quot; demonstrates how so many of 0bama's actions as President of the United States, which D'Souza had predicted on the basis of his study of 0bama's background, are perfectly consistent with that ideology, however inconsistent it is with the rhetoric that gained him the highest office in the land. </p> <p>SEAL Team Six Book on Osama bin Laden Raid Coming Out 9/11 </p> <p>&quot;No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama Bin Laden&quot; </p> <p>Navy Times -- A member of the U.S. Navy SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden has written a firsthand account of the operation, triggering more questions about the possible public release of classified information involving the historic assault of the terror leader's compound in Pakistan. U.S. military officials say they do not believe the book has been read or cleared by the Defense Department, which reviews publications by military members to make sure that no classified material is revealed. The book, titled &quot;No Easy Day&quot; (available Amazon $16) and scheduled to be released next month on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, comes amid a heated debate over whether members of the military — both active duty and retired — should engage in political battles. &quot;I haven't read the book and am unaware that anyone in the Department has reviewed it,&quot; said Pentagon press secretary George Little. White House and CIA officials also said the book had not been reviewed by their agencies. The book announcement comes just as a group of retired special operations and CIA officers have launched a campaign accusing President Barack 0bama of revealing classified details of the mission and turning the killing of bin Laden into a campaign centerpiece. The group complains that Obama has taken too much credit for the operation. Their public complaints drew a rebuke from Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as well as other special operations forces, who called the partisan criticism unprofessional. Dempsey said that such public political involvement by members of armed services erodes public confidence and trust in the military. The author of the upcoming bin Laden book, who has left the military, is using the pseudonym Mark Owen. And in a news release from publisher Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), Owen describes the book as an effort to &quot;set the record straight about one of the most important missions in U.S. military history.&quot; He said the book is about &quot;the guys&quot; and the sacrifices that the special operations forces make to do the job and is written in the hope that it will inspire young men to become SEALs. If the book sticks to his personal thoughts about the job and the mission, Owen may be in the clear. But often special operations forces must sign nondisclosure agreements. And they are not allowed to release classified information, such as intelligence data or military tactics and procedures used to ensure success of the May 2011 raid. Christine Ball, a spokeswoman for Dutton, said the work was vetted by a former special operations attorney provided by the author. &quot;He vetted it for tactical, technical and procedural information as well as information that could be considered classified by compilation and found it to be without risk to national security,&quot; Ball said. Defense Department spokesman Lt. Col. James Gregory said that if the book reveals classified information about the raid, the Pentagon would &quot;defer to the Department of Justice.&quot; According to Pentagon regulations, retired personnel, former employees and non-active duty members of the Reserves &quot;shall use the DoD security review process to ensure that information they submit for public release does not compromise national security.&quot; The CIA also could weigh in because the agency ran the secret bin Laden mission. If there is classified information in the book, the former SEAL could face criminal charges. And even if he donates the money to charity, for instance, that is unlikely to prevent the Justice Department from suing to collect any future book proceeds. Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled a CIA whistle-blower had to forfeit future money he earned from a scathing book he wrote about the spy agency after he failed to get approval from his former employer before publication. The CIA accused the officer of breaking his secrecy agreement with the U.S. The former officer, who worked deep undercover, published the book in July 2008 using the pseudonym Ishmael Jones. The CIA said his book, &quot;The Human Factor: Inside the CIA's Dysfunctional Intelligence Culture,&quot; was submitted to the agency's publications review board under a secrecy agreement that covers books written by former employees. But Jones, who published the book before the review process was completed, said it contained no classified information. In 2010, the Defense Department claimed a former Army intelligence officer's war memoir threatened national security. The Pentagon paid $47,000 to destroy 9,500 copies of the book, called &quot;Operation Dark Heart: Spycraft and Special Ops on the Frontlines of Afghanistan — and the Path to Victory.&quot; The book was written by Anthony Shaffer, whose lawyer said the Army Reserve cleared the manuscript beforehand but the Defense Department later rescinded the approval, claiming the text contained classified information. Shaffer and the publisher agreed to remove the material. Dutton, which announced the book's pending release Wednesday, is planning a major first print run of 300,000 copies, Ball said. The co-author, journalist Kevin Maurer, has worked on four previous books. </p> <p>'No Easy Day': Six Top Revelations from Book on the bin Laden Mission The Navy SEAL Team 6 operators hand-picked to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound in 2011 had some unwelcome surprises waiting for them as they hit the ground, according to Matt Bissonnette (pen name Mark Owen) in his controversial book “No Easy Day,” released Tuesday. </p> <p>Here are the top six revelations from his new memoir. (1) VIPs gathered for a dress rehearsal two weeks before the mission. At a massive hangar at a base training center, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, and Adm. William McRaven, now commander of Special Operations Command, wanted to evaluate the plan to raid bin Laden’s compound, and decide whether to go ahead with it. The SEALs then executed a “rock drill,” that included everything from helicopter flight paths to a mock-up of the compound on the floor. “A narrator reading off a script started the hour-and-a-half-long brief on Operation Neptune Spear.” Most of the questions from the VIPs focused on the perimeter team. This included two special operations assaulters, along with a trained dog, who would patrol outside the compound to capture “squirters” – fighters running out of the compound to engage the Americans or wearing suicide bombs to protect bin Laden. This job “was actually one of the biggest and most dangerous positions on the raid,” Bissonnette writes. “If we ran long on target, they would have to deal with first responders, most likely Pakistani] police, and the threat of military forces showing up.” During the VIP briefing, someone asked whether “this was a kill mission.” A government lawyer responded that it was not. “If he is naked with his hands up, you’re not going to engage him,” the lawyer told the SEALs, adding, “I am not going to tell you how to do your job. What we’re saying is if he does not pose a threat, you will detain him.” (2) Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wanted to bomb bin Laden’s compound. Gates argued that an air strike would be less of an invasion of Pakistan’s sovereignty, according to Bissonnette. (3) Women were pivotal to the bin Laden mission. The SEAL team was given the green light by a CIA analyst with the pseudonym “Jen” who was “the main force” behind tracking bin Laden to Abbottabad. (4) The SEALs enjoyed practical jokes, even as they were preparing for missions. (5) SEAL equipment ranges from drug-store staples to custom-built hybrid weapons. (6) A near crash-landing almost ended the mission before it began. </p> <p>Bin Laden Raid Tell-All Author Revealed NEWSBOY POST protects his real name] — Questions Raised Whether Ex-Navy SEAL's Have Freedom of Speech SEAL team author's real name is M*** B********** The author of a recently announced insider account of the raid that killed Usama bin Laden has been identified to Fox News as a 36-year-old former Navy SEAL Team 6 member from Alaska who also played a role in the high-profile rescue of an American captain kidnapped by Somali pirates. The book, &quot;No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden,&quot; is set to hit shelves on Sept 11. It is penned under the pseudonym &quot;Mark Owen,&quot; according to the publisher, but multiple sources told Fox News his name is in fact NEWSBOY POST won't reveal his real identity] M*** B**********, 36, of Wrangell, Alaska. He could be exposing himself to legal trouble, as the Pentagon has not vetted the account. The tell-all book also has apparently upset a large population of former and current SEAL members who worry about releasing information that could compromise future missions. One Navy SEAL told Fox News, &quot;How do we tell our guys to stay quiet when this guy won't?&quot; Other SEALs are expressing anger, with some going so far as to call him a &quot;traitor.&quot; According to a press release from his publisher, Penguin Group, &quot;Owen was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist leader's hideout and was present at his death.&quot; In the book, he writes &quot;it is time to set the record straight about one of the most important missions in U.S. military history.&quot; An experienced member of the elite Navy SEAL special operators, he also participated in the highly publicized rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean in 2009. That mission involved a daring rescue that ended when SEAL snipers shot and killed three Somali pirates with direct shots to the head. He received the rank of chief before he retired. The book is co-authored with Kevin Maurer, author of four books, many of which were based on Special Operations. Along with using the pseudonym &quot;Mark Owen,&quot; protected his fellow SEAL Team 6 members by changing their names in the book. Both the Pentagon and CIA said Wednesday that the book was not in any way vetted by either department to prevent unwanted classified information from being released. When asked about the book, officials in both departments said they were unaware of the SEAL's true identity, but described co-author Kevin Maurer as a well-respected journalist. Lt. Cmdr. Chris Servello, a Navy spokesman, said it's possible he or any former service member could be punished for revealing national security secrets. &quot;Any service member who discloses classified or sensitive information could be subject to prosecution -- this doesn't end when you leave the service,&quot; Servello said. &quot;There is nothing unique to the special warfare community in this regard.&quot; Meanwhile, the Pentagon said that because the author is a retired service member, any potential criminal prosecution would be handled by the Department of Justice. A spokesman at Dutton, a division of Penguin Group, said proceeds from the book will be donated to charitable causes that benefit the families of fallen Navy SEALs. Much attention has been given to the issue of security leaks in the ongoing presidential race. Supporters of Mitt Romney accuse President Obama of intentionally leaking operational details surrounding the bin Laden raid for political gain. OPSEC, a group of retired military and intelligence officers, came under fire this week from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who told Fox News on Tuesday he was &quot;disappointed&quot; by the group's political use of the military uniform in a recent anti-Obama advertisement. Dempsey said he feels those who serve ought to remain &quot;apolitical.&quot; OPSEC fired back, arguing that Dempsey's criticisms can be applied equally to the 0bama campaign's &quot;One Chance&quot; ad, which featured images of Blackhawk helicopters in flight and military pilots. The video suggests Romney would not have made the same decision to call for the raid that killed Usama bin Laden. Film producer Kathryn Bigelow received help from the White House when she produced &quot;Zero Dark Thirty,&quot; a highly anticipated film detailing the bin Laden raid that was originally set to be released before the November election but was pushed to a later date after Republicans cried foul. </p> <p>Al Qaeda calls for death of Navy SEAL who authored book on bin Laden mission CBS News -- Al Qaeda has wasted no time in calling for the death of the former Navy SEAL who has written a book under a pseudonym which his publisher Dutton calls a first person account of the death of Osama bin Laden. A jihadist forum, al-Fidaa, located in Malaysia, posted the death calls and provided the author's name and photograph under a headline titled &quot;First Image of One of the Dogs who killed Bin Laden.&quot; Dogs are considered unclean in Islam. Al-Fidaa, which is also used by al Qaeda to recruit suicide bombers, posted comments by one member, Abu (father of, in Arabic) Dujanah al-Kinani, warning that the &quot;lion's cubs,&quot; the mujahedeen (holy warriors), are now waiting for the right time to avenge bin laden's death. Usama means &quot;lion&quot; in Arabic. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the new leader of al-Qaeda has called bin Laden, &quot;the lion of Islam.&quot; Jihadi online forums sometimes refer to Bin Laden as the &quot;Lion of the Holy Jihad.&quot; One posting on al-Fidaa called on Allah to kill the author sooner or later. Another member, in the thread, called on God to &quot;make him a living example and let us witness his dark day.&quot; Continued &gt;&gt; </p> <p>New Online Film “The Unvetted” Exposes 0bama’s Communist Cover-Up A new film from America’s Survival, Inc. documents what journalist Cliff Kincaid calls “one of the most extraordinary cover-ups in American history --how a presidential candidate with a covert connection to a major Communist Party operative was protected by the major liberal and conservative media.” Kincaid is the president of America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI) and recently held a Washington, D.C. conference on “The Vetting” of Barack 0bama. To view this 30 minute film “The Unvetted&quot; -- CLICK HERE “Four years after we broke the story wide open with the release of a 600-page FBI file on Barack 0bama's communist mentor, we are still finding major elements of the media with their heads in the sand,” Kincaid said, in announcing the official release of the new film. Kincaid is a veteran Washington journalist with more than 30 years of experience. The film is produced in cooperation with AB INDEPENDENT PRODUCTIONS, headed by Agustin Blazquez, producer/director of many documentaries, including “Che: The Other Side of an Icon.” The “Che” documentary, which told the truth about Castro’s communist revolution, was rejected for funding and airing by public television. Working with blogger Trevor Loudon, Kincaid describes in the film how they uncovered the fact that Obama had concealed the identity of Frank Marshall Davis in his memoir Dreams from My Father, calling him just “Frank” and depicting him as a poet and writer. George Obama is the biological look-alike son of Barack Obama, Sr. However, President Barack 0bama in our opinion is the biological son of look-alike communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis. George, supposedly Barack's younger brother, lives in a small African hut and survives on about $150 annually with no help whatsoever from Barack. We can can see why Barack has no direct interest in George's plight. He's not George's brother. </p> <p>“0bama knew that Frank Marshall Davis was an associate and mentor and that he had to protect his communist identity from public scrutiny,” Kincaid points out. The film includes an interview with Kincaid and some of the original source material used to document Obama’s relationship with Davis. &quot;We expected silence and ridicule from the liberal media when we exposed 0bama's 'Frank' as Communist Frank Marshall Davis,” Kincaid said. “But the Drudge Report would not run my ads on Frank Marshall Davis during the fall of 2008. Fox News did not cover our news conference in May of 2008 revealing the communist identity of 'Frank' from 0bama's book.” Kincaid went on, “The conservative media must stop protecting Obama from the scrutiny he deserves. Our film 'The Unvetted' explains this scandal and cover-up. Our sincere thanks to Right Side News for telling the story that has to be told. Right Side News is a news source that you can trust. They deserve your support as we go forward exposing this most deadly and dangerous of cover-ups.” Videos and documents from Kincaid’s conference on “The Vetting” of 0bama can be found at the website www.LeninandSharia.com. The conference featured speeches by, among others, Trevor Loudon; filmmaker Joel Gilbert, director of a new film on the possibility that Davis was Obama’s real father; Paul Kengor, author of a new book on Davis entitled The Communist; and former KGB officer Konstantin Preobrazhensky, who gave a report on Soviet/Russian cooperation with Arab and Islamic terrorist groups and states. </p> <p>Academic Model Predicts Big Electoral Win — Romney-320 Votes to 0bama-218 Votes </p> <p>By Rick Moran -- Few pollsters are predicting an electoral landslide for Romney, but two academics from the University of Colorado have run the numbers through a statistical model they built and found Mitt Romney to be the clear winner in November. LA Times Reports: Campaign 2012 may have spent weeks stuck on discussions of Mitt Romney's taxes, Joe Biden's rant on putting &quot;y'all in chains&quot; and &quot;legitimate rape&quot; and abortion, but a pair of Colorado political scientists believe the struggling economy will still be the dominant issue and will pave the way for a Romney victory. Using a state-by-state analysis of unemployment and per-capita income, academics Kenneth Bickers and Michael Berry of the University of Colorado project that Romney will win 52.9% of the popular vote and 320 electoral votes - 0bama will get 218. The political Scientists discuss their findings HERE. Their forecast suggests that President 0bama will lose in almost all of the swing states, including North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida. The 0bama camp might note that the president leads, if narrowly, in most of those states. Pennsylvania is considered solidly enough in the Democrat's column that both sides have stopped television advertising there. But Bickers said much of the polling thus far means relatively little, with much of the electorate still not focused on the race. The academics said their model focuses on the preeminent issue of the economy. Applied retrospectively, the model predicts the correct winner in every presidential contest going back to 1980, they said. </p> <p>No doubt if the election turns on how the economy is doing, Romney has a chance for a clear victory. Romney's problem has been and will be how to focus the attention of the voter on the economic failures of this president when 0bama refuses to play along and constantly tries to change the subject. It is likely that eventually, 0bama will run out of distractions and in the last 10 days of the race, the economy will move front and center. If that happens, we should see a swing toward Romney. Whether it will be enough no one knows. SHOCK POLL: 'Devoid of Color' Candidate Romney Has ZERO PERCENT Support from African Americans! </p> <p>A new NBC/WSJ poll out Tuesday shows President Barack 0bama with a four-point lead over presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. But as is often the case with polls, some of the more interesting numbers were in the details. For example? Romney snagged zero percent of African-American voters. Among key demographics, the poll noted that 0bama had a lead over Romney. The most stark being when it came to African Americans: 94 percent to 0 percent. SEE NBC/WSJ POLL: Looking inside the numbers, 0bama continues to lead Romney among key parts of his political base, including African Americans (94 percent to 0 percent), Latinos (by a 2-to-1 margin), voters under 35-years-old (52 percent to 41 percent) and women (51 percent to 41 percent). His lead among those groups isn’t surprising, but hard for the number zero not to catch a person’s attention. Romney, meanwhile, is ahead with whites (53 percent to 40 percent), rural voters (47 percent to 38 percent) and seniors (49 percent to 41 percent). In a sample of 12 swing states, 0bama had a three-point lead, “a narrower edge in these battlegrounds than the eight-point lead the president enjoyed in the June and July NBC/WSJ polls.” The poll further identified two obstacles Romney has: his image and his Medicare overhaul proposal. What’s more, 0bama bests Romney by 35 points (58 percent to 23 percent) on the question of which candidate is more likeable, and by 22 points (52 percent to 30 percent) on caring about average people. In addition, a majority of voters (51 percent) view the former Massachusetts governor’s approach to issues as being “out of step” with most Americans’ thinking. By comparison, 54 percent say 0bama’s positions are “in the mainstream.” 0bama’s challenge? The economy. More than six in 10 said they think the country’s headed in the wrong direction (“essentially unchanged from last month”) — and 44 percent said Romney has better ideas on how to improve the economy, versus 0bama’s 38 percent. The poll “was conducted of 1,000 registered voters (300 reached by cell phone) from Aug. 16-20, and it has an overall margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percentage points.” (h/t NBC News) </p> <p>Failed Leftist Mag Sez Failed Marxist Messiah Must Go! NEWSWEEK COVER: Hit the Road, Barack! Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope. </p> <p>BY NIALL FERGUSON (British historian, economist, Professor of History at Harvard) -- I was a good loser four years ago. “In the grand scheme of history,” I wrote the day after Barack Obama’s election as president, “four decades is not an especially long time. Yet in that brief period America has gone from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. to the apotheosis of Barack Obama. You would not be human if you failed to acknowledge this as a cause for great rejoicing.” Despite having been—full disclosure—an adviser to John McCain, I acknowledged his opponent’s remarkable qualities: his soaring oratory, his cool, hard-to-ruffle temperament, and his near faultless campaign organization. Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not. In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful. In an unguarded moment earlier this year, the president commented that the private sector of the economy was “doing fine.” Certainly, the stock market is well up (by 74 percent) relative to the close on Inauguration Day 2009. But the total number of private-sector jobs is still 4.3 million below the January 2008 peak. Meanwhile, since 2008, a staggering 3.6 million Americans have been added to Social Security’s disability insurance program. This is one of many ways unemployment is being concealed. In his fiscal year 2010 budget—the first he presented—the president envisaged growth of 3.2 percent in 2010, 4.0 percent in 2011, 4.6 percent in 2012. The actual numbers were 2.4 percent in 2010 and 1.8 percent in 2011; few forecasters now expect it to be much above 2.3 percent this year. Unemployment was supposed to be 6 percent by now. It has averaged 8.2 percent this year so far. Meanwhile real median annual household income has dropped more than 5 percent since June 2009. Nearly 110 million individuals received a welfare benefit in 2011, mostly Medicaid or food stamps. Welcome to Obama’s America: nearly half the population is not represented on a taxable return—almost exactly the same proportion that lives in a household where at least one member receives some type of government benefit. We are becoming the 50–50 nation—half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits. And all this despite a far bigger hike in the federal debt than we were promised. According to the 2010 budget, the debt in public hands was supposed to fall in relation to GDP from 67 percent in 2010 to less than 66 percent this year. If only. By the end of this year, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), it will reach 70 percent of GDP. These figures significantly understate the debt problem, however. The ratio that matters is debt to revenue. That number has leapt upward from 165 percent in 2008 to 262 percent this year, according to figures from the International Monetary Fund. Among developed economies, only Ireland and Spain have seen a bigger deterioration. Not only did the initial fiscal stimulus fade after the sugar rush of 2009, but the president has done absolutely nothing to close the long-term gap between spending and revenue. His much-vaunted health-care reform will not prevent spending on health programs growing from more than 5 percent of GDP today to almost 10 percent in 2037. Add the projected increase in the costs of Social Security and you are looking at a total bill of 16 percent of GDP 25 years from now. That is only slightly less than the average cost of all federal programs and activities, apart from net interest payments, over the past 40 years. Under this president’s policies, the debt is on course to approach 200 percent of GDP in 2037—a mountain of debt that is bound to reduce growth even further. And even that figure understates the real debt burden. The most recent estimate for the difference between the net present value of federal government liabilities and the net present value of future federal revenues—what economist Larry Kotlikoff calls the true “fiscal gap”—is $222 trillion. The president’s supporters will, of course, say that the poor performance of the economy can’t be blamed on him. They would rather finger his predecessor, or the economists he picked to advise him, or Wall Street, or Europe—anyone but the man in the White House. There’s some truth in this. It was pretty hard to foresee what was going to happen to the economy in the years after 2008. Yet surely we can legitimately blame the president for the political mistakes of the past four years. After all, it’s the president’s job to run the executive branch effectively—to lead the nation. And here is where his failure has been greatest. On paper it looked like an economics dream team: Larry Summers, Christina Romer, and Austan Goolsbee, not to mention Peter Orszag, Tim Geithner, and Paul Volcker. The inside story, however, is that the president was wholly unable to manage the mighty brains—and egos—he had assembled to advise him. According to Ron Suskind’s book Confidence Men, Summers told Orszag over dinner in May 2009: “You know, Peter, we’re really home alone ... I mean it. We’re home alone. There’s no adult in charge. Clinton would never have made these mistakes of indecisiveness on key economic issues].” On issue after issue, according to Suskind, Summers overruled the president. “You can’t just march in and make that argument and then have him make a decision,” Summers told Orszag, “because he doesn’t know what he’s deciding.” (I have heard similar things said off the record by key participants in the president’s interminable “seminar” on Afghanistan policy.) This problem extended beyond the White House. After the imperial presidency of the Bush era, there was something more like parliamentary government in the first two years of Obama’s administration. The president proposed; Congress disposed. It was Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts who wrote the stimulus bill and made sure it was stuffed full of political pork. And it was the Democrats in Congress—led by Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank—who devised the 2,319-page Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank, for short), a near-perfect example of excessive complexity in regulation. The act requires that regulators create 243 rules, conduct 67 studies, and issue 22 periodic reports. It eliminates one regulator and creates two new ones. It is five years since the financial crisis began, but the central problems—excessive financial concentration and excessive financial leverage—have not been addressed. Today a mere 10 too-big-to-fail financial institutions are responsible for three quarters of total financial assets under management in the United States. Yet the country’s largest banks are at least $50 billion short of meeting new capital requirements under the new “Basel III” accords governing bank capital adequacy. And then there was health care. No one seriously doubts that the U.S. system needed to be reformed. But the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 did nothing to address the core defects of the system: the long-run explosion of Medicare costs as the baby boomers retire, the “fee for service” model that drives health-care inflation, the link from employment to insurance that explains why so many Americans lack coverage, and the excessive costs of the liability insurance that our doctors need to protect them from our lawyers. Ironically, the core Obamacare concept of the “individual mandate” (requiring all Americans to buy insurance or face a fine) was something the president himself had opposed when vying with Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. A much more accurate term would be “Pelosicare,” since it was she who really forced the bill through Congress. Pelosicare was not only a political disaster. Polls consistently showed that only a minority of the public liked the ACA, and it was the main reason why Republicans regained control of the House in 2010. It was also another fiscal snafu. The president pledged that health-care reform would not add a cent to the deficit. But the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation now estimate that the insurance-coverage provisions of the ACA will have a net cost of close to $1.2 trillion over the 2012–22 period. The president just kept ducking the fiscal issue. Having set up a bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, headed by retired Wyoming Republican senator Alan Simpson and former Clinton chief of staff Erskine Bowles, Obama effectively sidelined its recommendations of approximately $3 trillion in cuts and $1 trillion in added revenues over the coming decade. As a result there was no “grand bargain” with the House Republicans—which means that, barring some miracle, the country will hit a fiscal cliff on Jan. 1 as the Bush tax cuts expire and the first of $1.2 trillion of automatic, across-the-board spending cuts are imposed. The CBO estimates the net effect could be a 4 percent reduction in output. The failures of leadership on economic and fiscal policy over the past four years have had geopolitical consequences. The World Bank expects the U.S. to grow by just 2 percent in 2012. China will grow four times faster than that; India three times faster. By 2017, the International Monetary Fund predicts, the GDP of China will overtake that of the United States. Meanwhile, the fiscal train wreck has already initiated a process of steep cuts in the defense budget, at a time when it is very far from clear that the world has become a safer place—least of all in the Middle East. For me the president’s greatest failure has been not to think through the implications of these challenges to American power. Far from developing a coherent strategy, he believed—perhaps encouraged by the premature award of the Nobel Peace Prize—that all he needed to do was to make touchy-feely speeches around the world explaining to foreigners that he was not George W. Bush. In Tokyo in November 2009, the president gave his boilerplate hug-a-foreigner speech: “In an interconnected world, power does not need to be a zero-sum game, and nations need not fear the success of another ... The United States does not seek to contain China ... On the contrary, the rise of a strong, prosperous China can be a source of strength for the community of nations.” Yet by fall 2011, this approach had been jettisoned in favor of a “pivot” back to the Pacific, including risible deployments of troops to Australia and Singapore. From the vantage point of Beijing, neither approach had credibility. His Cairo speech of June 4, 2009, was an especially clumsy bid to ingratiate himself on what proved to be the eve of a regional revolution. “I’m also proud to carry with me,” he told Egyptians, “a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: Assalamu alaikum ... I’ve come here ... to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based ... upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition.” Believing it was his role to repudiate neoconservatism, Obama completely missed the revolutionary wave of Middle Eastern democracy—precisely the wave the neocons had hoped to trigger with the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. When revolution broke out—first in Iran, then in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria—the president faced stark alternatives. He could try to catch the wave by lending his support to the youthful revolutionaries and trying to ride it in a direction advantageous to American interests. Or he could do nothing and let the forces of reaction prevail. In the case of Iran he did nothing, and the thugs of the Islamic Republic ruthlessly crushed the demonstrations. Ditto Syria. In Libya he was cajoled into intervening. In Egypt he tried to have it both ways, exhorting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave, then drawing back and recommending an “orderly transition.” The result was a foreign-policy debacle. Not only were Egypt’s elites appalled by what seemed to them a betrayal, but the victors—the Muslim Brotherhood—had nothing to be grateful for. America’s closest Middle Eastern allies—Israel and the Saudis—looked on in amazement. “This is what happens when you get caught by surprise,” an anonymous American official told The New York Times in February 2011. “We’ve had endless strategy sessions for the past two years on Mideast peace, on containing Iran. And how many of them factored in the possibility that Egypt moves from stability to turmoil? None.” Remarkably the president polls relatively strongly on national security. Yet the public mistakes his administration’s astonishingly uninhibited use of political assassination for a coherent strategy. According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London, the civilian proportion of drone casualties was 16 percent last year. Ask yourself how the liberal media would have behaved if George W. Bush had used drones this way. Yet somehow it is only ever Republican secretaries of state who are accused of committing “war crimes.” The real crime is that the assassination program destroys potentially crucial intelligence (as well as antagonizing locals) every time a drone strikes. It symbolizes the administration’s decision to abandon counterinsurgency in favor of a narrow counterterrorism. What that means in practice is the abandonment not only of Iraq but soon of Afghanistan too. Understandably, the men and women who have served there wonder what exactly their sacrifice was for, if any notion that we are nation building has been quietly dumped. Only when both countries sink back into civil war will we realize the real price of Obama’s foreign policy. America under this president is a superpower in retreat, if not retirement. Small wonder 46 percent of Americans—and 63 percent of Chinese—believe that China already has replaced the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower or eventually will. It is a sign of just how completely Barack Obama has “lost his narrative” since getting elected that the best case he has yet made for reelection is that Mitt Romney should not be president. In his notorious “you didn’t build that” speech, Obama listed what he considers the greatest achievements of big government: the Internet, the GI Bill, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Hoover Dam, the Apollo moon landing, and even (bizarrely) the creation of the middle class. Sadly, he couldn’t mention anything comparable that his administration has achieved. Now Obama is going head-to-head with his nemesis: a politician who believes more in content than in form, more in reform than in rhetoric. In the past days much has been written about Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney’s choice of running mate. I know, like, and admire Paul Ryan. For me, the point about him is simple. He is one of only a handful of politicians in Washington who is truly sincere about addressing this country’s fiscal crisis. Over the past few years Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” has evolved, but the essential points are clear: replace Medicare with a voucher program for those now under 55 (not current or imminent recipients), turn Medicaid and food stamps into block grants for the states, and—crucially—simplify the tax code and lower tax rates to try to inject some supply-side life back into the U.S. private sector. Ryan is not preaching austerity. He is preaching growth. And though Reagan-era veterans like David Stockman may have their doubts, they underestimate Ryan’s mastery of this subject. There is literally no one in Washington who understands the challenges of fiscal reform better. Just as importantly, Ryan has learned that politics is the art of the possible. There are parts of his plan that he is understandably soft-pedaling right now—notably the new source of federal revenue referred to in his 2010 “Roadmap for America’s Future” as a “business consumption tax.” Stockman needs to remind himself that the real “fairy-tale budget plans” have been the ones produced by the White House since 2009. I first met Paul Ryan in April 2010. I had been invited to a dinner in Washington where the U.S. fiscal crisis was going to be the topic of discussion. So crucial did this subject seem to me that I expected the dinner to happen in one of the city’s biggest hotel ballrooms. It was actually held in the host’s home. Three congressmen showed up—a sign of how successful the president’s fiscal version of “don’t ask, don’t tell” (about the debt) had been. Ryan blew me away. I have wanted to see him in the White House ever since. It remains to be seen if the American public is ready to embrace the radical overhaul of the nation’s finances that Ryan proposes. The public mood is deeply ambivalent. The president’s approval rating is down to 49 percent. The Gallup Economic Confidence Index is at minus 28 (down from minus 13 in May). But Obama is still narrowly ahead of Romney in the polls as far as the popular vote is concerned (50.8 to 48.2) and comfortably ahead in the Electoral College. The pollsters say that Paul Ryan’s nomination is not a game changer; indeed, he is a high-risk choice for Romney because so many people feel nervous about the reforms Ryan proposes. But one thing is clear. Ryan psychs Obama out. This has been apparent ever since the White House went on the offensive against Ryan in the spring of last year. And the reason he psychs him out is that, unlike Obama, Ryan has a plan—as opposed to a narrative—for this country. Mitt Romney is not the best candidate for the presidency I can imagine. But he was clearly the best of the Republican contenders for the nomination. He brings to the presidency precisely the kind of experience—both in the business world and in executive office—that Barack Obama manifestly lacked four years ago. (If only Obama had worked at Bain Capital for a few years, instead of as a community organizer in Chicago, he might understand exactly why the private sector is not “doing fine” right now.) And by picking Ryan as his running mate, Romney has given the first real sign that—unlike Obama—he is a courageous leader who will not duck the challenges America faces. The voters now face a stark choice. They can let Barack Obama’s rambling, solipsistic narrative continue until they find themselves living in some American version of Europe, with low growth, high unemployment, even higher debt—and real geopolitical decline. Or they can opt for real change: the kind of change that will end four years of economic underperformance, stop the terrifying accumulation of debt, and reestablish a secure fiscal foundation for American national security. I’ve said it before: it’s a choice between les États Unis and the Republic of the Battle Hymn. I was a good loser four years ago. But this year, fired up by the rise of Ryan, I want badly to win. </p> <p>Liberal Bloggers Attack Newsweek Cover Article — Niall Ferguson Defends! Niall Ferguson shown with his better known wife Ayaan Hirsi Ali; a Somali-Dutch feminist and atheist activist, writer and member of the Dutch Parliament who is known for her views critical of Islam, and its practice of anti-female genital mutilation. They married last year under a Fatw&#257;. </p> <p>When asked what he dislikes about the United States Ferguson says, &quot;I really can’t stand America’s liberal bloggers.&quot; </p> <p>BY NIALL FERGUSON -- First, duck the argument. Second, nitpick. Third, vilify. That’s what Niall Ferguson says liberal bloggers did after reading his Newsweek story on Obama’s record. Here, he offers a point-by-point defense of his argument. The other day, a British friend asked me if there was anything about the United States I disliked. I was happily on vacation and couldn’t think of anything. But now I remember. I really can’t stand America’s liberal bloggers. “We know no spectacle so ridiculous,” Lord Macaulay famously wrote, “as the British public in one of its periodical fits of morality.” But the spectacle of the American liberal blogosphere in one of its almost daily fits of righteous indignation is not so much ridiculous as faintly sinister. Why? Because what I have encountered since the publication of my Newsweek article criticizing President Obama looks suspiciously like an orchestrated attempt to discredit me. My critics have three things in common. First, they wholly fail to respond to the central arguments of the piece. Second, they claim to be engaged in “fact checking,” whereas in nearly all cases they are merely offering alternative (often silly or skewed) interpretations of the facts. Third, they adopt a tone of outrage that would be appropriate only if I had argued that, say, women’s bodies can somehow prevent pregnancies in case of “legitimate rape.” Their approach is highly effective, and I must remember it if I ever decide to organize an intellectual witch hunt. What makes it so irksome is that it simultaneously dodges the central thesis of my piece and at the same time seeks to brand me as a liar. The icing on the cake has been the attempt by some bloggers to demand that I be sacked not just by Newsweek but also by Harvard University, where I am a tenured professor. It is especially piquant to read these demands from people who would presumably defend academic freedom in the last ditch—provided it is the freedom to publish opinions in line with their own ideology. Let me begin by restating my argument. President Obama should be judged on his record in office. In my view, he has not only failed to live up to the high expectations of those who voted for him, but also to the pledges he made in his inaugural address. (In order to be fair, I deliberately did not judge his performance against his campaign pledges.) The economy has performed less well than the White House led us to expect, despite a bigger increase in national debt than it led us to expect (exhibit 1). Continued &gt;&gt; </p> <p>Team Six Commander: Special Ops Assault on 0bama Is Just Beginning! </p> <p>Watch the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. video, “DISHONORABLE DISCLOSURES&quot; Here </p> <p>Earlier this week, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund. Inc., a group of former U.S. intelligence and Special Forces personnel, launched a campaign criticizing President Barack Obama for unfairly taking credit for killing Osama bin Laden and leaking national security information for political gain. This is the second high-profile attack on the president from ex-elite military operatives. Last month, Ryan Zinke, a Montana State Senator and former commander of Navy SEAL Team Six, started a super PAC, Special Operations for America, which is dedicated to supporting Mitt Romney and hitting President Obama on leaks and on politicizing Bin Laden’s death. According to Mr. Zinke, these two super PACs are just the first salvo in what will be a sustained assault on the president by high-level ex-soldiers. “There’s a number of groups out there,” Mr. Zinke told Politicker this morning. “I think what it demonstrates is, there’s a lot of anger, there’s a lot of concern among the former military community.” Mr. Zinke said he believes these feelings of anger were fueled by a series of White House leaks and an Obama campaign commercial featuring President Bill Clinton that questioned whether Mr. Romney would have ordered the SEAL Team Six raid that killed Bin Laden. “I think there is huge concern that the administration is using and continues to leak class documents for less than–well, for political gain,” said Mr. Zinke. “I think when the commercial came out with President Clinton and President Obama, and they talked about the political ramifications of failure, they didn’t talk about the families that would be left without a father. They talked about political consequences—that was a bridge too far.” Mr. Zinke also pointed to White House leaks about the Bin Laden raid to a pair of filmmakers who are making a movie about the operation as something that was upsetting to military personnel. “There’s a lot of reasons you can release classified information, a lot of justifiable reasons, but making a movie for political gain isn’t one of them,” Mr. Zinke said. According to Mr. Zinke, there are currently at least four other anti-Obama groups made up of former elite military operatives: Special Operations Speaks, Veterans for a Strong America, Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. and his group, Special Operations for America. He said he expects that number to climb. Because active-duty soldiers are barred from engaging in political activity, Mr. Zinke believes it is especially important for retired military personnel to speak up. “It’s really incumbent upon the retired guys to articulate a message. You look at the approval ratings of the president, Congress is in single-digits, the president is not far behind, and I think Americans still appreciate the credibility of our military,” he said. (For the record, the president’s approval rating actually currently stands at over 40 percent.) Mr. Zinke described his group and VSA as “kind of sisters” and said he knows some of the officers involved in other groups from his days in the SEALs, but said SOFA doesn’t coordinate with any other groups. “We’re trying to link many of these organizations for a unified effort and, to a degree, they’re like herding cats,” said Mr. Zinke. Though he knows there’s “power in a unified message,” Mr. Zinke said part of his reluctance to associate his group with other similar organizations is because, “SOFA is a little more cautious; we don’t want to editorialize.” The Obama campaign criticized Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc. as being akin to the “swift boat” attacks that smeared John Kerry in 2004 and noted that, despite claims of nonpartisanship, the group has ties to the GOP. Mr. Zinke dismissed these criticisms of the former military groups attacking President Obama. “There’s going to be attempts to discredit,” Mr. Zinke said. “I guess when you take a stand, you expose yourself to rocks. And so be it.” For his part, Mr. Zinke said his organization is “not swift boat.” “I can speak for SOFA—we are not swift boat in that what we are articulat ing] is factual, and we’re very careful not to make personal attacks. We are making a complete argument of why the administration’s actions and policies are not in the best interests of national defense and national security,” said Mr. Zinke. Special Operations for America’s upcoming plans include a television commercial. Mr. Zinke said the ad would be “edgy,” but wouldn’t be “a personal attack.” “I don’t stoop to personal attacks,” he said. “You know, I’m not from Chicago. In Montana, we do things a little differently.” See also: Former Navy SEAL Launches PAC To Fight Obama Former Navy SEAL's Anti-Obama PAC Hits The Racetrack Obama Launches 'Truth Team' For New Round of Smear-Fighting Navy SEALS Launch 'Swift-Boating' of Commando-In-Chief with &quot;Dishonorable Disclosures&quot; Ad and Movie Special Ops Group Attacks 0bama Over bin Laden Bragging, Leaks </p> <p>VIEW &quot;Dishonorable Disclosures&quot; Trailer (1:09) /|\ VIEW &quot;Dishonorable Disclosures” Movie (22:01) WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of former U.S. intelligence and Special Forces operatives is set to launch a media campaign, including TV ads, that scolds President Barack Obama for taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden and argues that high-level leaks are endangering American lives. Leaders of the group, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc, say it is nonpartisan and unconnected to any political party or presidential campaign. It is registered as a so-called social welfare group, which means its primary purpose is to further the common good and its political activities should be secondary. In the past, military exploits have been turned against presidential candidates by outside groups, most famously the Swift Boat ads in 2004 that questioned Democratic nominee John Kerry's Vietnam War service. The OPSEC group says it is not political and aims to save American lives. Its first public salvo is a 22-minute film that includes criticism of Obama and his administration. The film, to be released on Wednesday, was seen in advance by Reuters. &quot;Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not,&quot; Ben Smith, identified as a Navy SEAL, says in the film. </p> <p>Obama for President . . . of Kenya? He's eligible alright . . . Kenyan born, or not! And look at the fringe benefits for Obama — one of Kenya's best kept secrets is that it has 40 first-class golf courses </p> <p>Barack Hussein Obama will be fifty-one years, five months, and sixteen days old when he completes his four-year term on January 20, 2013. That will be the day when he walks out of the White House for the last time, having played the role of President of the United States for four years, and having brought the greatest, freest, most prosperous nation on Earth to the very brink of disaster. But Barack Obama may have his long term future already planned...assuming that he will be allowed to leave the country in 2013, a free man. As a man whose boundless narcissism has led him to “sweet-talk” his way into the presidency of the United States...the least qualified man ever to have his finger on the nuclear button...would it be too much of a stretch to imagine him returning to his beloved Kenya, the land of his fathers, to serve as president of that country? If that sounds a bit farfetched, consider this: With little notice by the U.S. media, the people of Kenya have paved the way for Obama to do just that. The Obama administration has spent some $23 million in USAID funds in Kenya, much of it urging a “yes” vote in support of a new constitution. The new constitution was adopted by national referendum on Wednesday, August 4, 2010...coincidentally, Obama’s 49th birthday. Consider these facts: “(1) Every person who, having been born in Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Barack Obama, Sr,)...shall become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December 1963... “(2) Every person who, having been born outside Kenya, is on 11th December, 1963 a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies (Barack Obama, Jr.)...shall, if his father becomes, or would but for his death have become a citizen of Kenya by virtue of subsection (1), become a citizen of Kenya on 12th December, 1963.” In other words, on December 12, 1963, through automatic operation of Kenyan law, Obama became a citizen of Kenya, giving him, at least temporarily, dual US-Kenyan citizenship. Obama did not actively seek British or Kenyan citizenship; they were his by “automatic operation” of British and Kenyan law and “by descent” from his Kenyan father. What this tells us is quite disturbing. It tells us that, since August 4, 2010, Barack Obama has been a citizen of Kenya “by birth,” a dual citizen of the United States and Kenya. Under current policy of the U.S. government, even though he serves as President of the United States, he is obliged to obey the laws of both countries. It is precisely the reason why the Founding Fathers insisted that only “natural born” citizens should ever serve as president or vice president. Having been born with dual US-British citizenship, Barack Obama does not qualify as “natural born.” Once Obama has left the White House the mainstream media will no longer feel obliged to protect him from scrutiny by those who are convinced that he was not eligible, at any time, to serve as President of the United States. Investigative journalists, seeking Pulitzers and Woodward-Bernstein-style notoriety, can be expected to dig deeply into his personal history, finally exposing the charlatan that he is. By renouncing his American citizenship and immersing himself in the public life of Kenya and sub-Saharan Africa, he can put himself beyond the reach of American law enforcement. And finally, renouncing American citizenship and acquiring Kenyan citizenship will give the Obamas something that Michelle has always longed for...a country she can be truly proud of. As for Obama himself, he will have yet another distinction in addition to receiving the Nobel Peace Prize...after having done absolutely nothing in the interest of world peace. He will serve as president in a country where they’ve erected a statue of him before...not after...he served as president of the country. He will finally have achieved something truly remarkable.

Gilbert’s full-length documentary presents evidence that Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the biological and ideological father of the president, not Barack Obama, the Kenyan who came from Africa in 1959 to attend the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. “I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama,” Gilbert told WND. “How could this be?” Gilbert launched into what became two years of research in which he conducted interviews and unearthed rare film footage and photos. On one of his investigative trips to Hawaii, he went to the library at Farrington High School in Honolulu, where Davis’s children went to school. Joel Gilbert’s DVD “Dreams from My Real Father” is available Here “I wanted to find yearbook photos of Davis’s children and compare them to Obama’s high school photos,” Gilbert said. Davis, who was African American, married Helen Canfield Davis, a white woman, in Chicago on May 11, 1946. Two of their children, Lynn and Mark, attended Farrington High. Lynn Davis, born Aug. 15, 1949, graduated from the school with the class of 1967. Mark Davis, born Nov. 9, 1950, graduated with the class of 1968. As seen in Exhibit 2, Mark Davis, in his yearbook photo in the center, bears resemblance to photos taken during his high school years. “Could President Obama be a half-sibling to the known children of Frank Marshall Davis?” Gilbert asks. </p> <p>Roots in Communism As Gilbert’s film points out, the FBI had Davis under surveillance for 19 years because of his activity as a Communist Party member in Chicago and Hawaii. Gilbert portrays Obama as a “Red Diaper Baby,” a child of Marxist parents who grows up to be a leftist radical. Gilbert cites as another example Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod, who was born to a mother who wrote for a communist newspaper in New York City. “Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a goat herder from Kenya, he would bring people together, so it went,” Gilbert explained. Possibilities: Is it Barack Obama, Sr. (bottom left) or Frank Marshall Davis (top right) that fathered Barack with an 18-year-old young &quot;lady&quot; named Stanley Ann Dunham, who downloaded Barack Obama in August of 1961. Enlargement] Our money's on Davis. </p> <p>“While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide an agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.” What Gilbert presents is a direct challenge to those assumptions, arguing it is more likely President Obama has a deeply disturbing family background and a hidden Marxist agenda. “If this is true, Obama has intentionally misrepresented himself to the American people and is no longer likeable,” Gilbert maintains. “Unfortunately, Obama’s style is to minimize, misdirect and outright lie about damaging information about his past. I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America.” In his autobiography, Obama referred to Davis only as “Frank,” a friend of his grandfather who “lived in a dilapidated house in a run-down section of Waikiki.”Gerald Horne, a contributing editor to Public Affairs, an openly Marxist political review, made the first positive identification of “Frank” as Frank Marshall Davis. In March 2007, Horne gave a speech at New York University on the occasion of the Communist Party USA archive being placed at a NYU library. In the speech, Horne discussed Davis, noting that Davis was born in Kansas, lived much of his adult life in Chicago and moved to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend, actor Paul Robeson. In the 1940s, Robeson was an outspoken critic of segregation and racial discrimination in the United States who was also a strong advocate of the Soviet Union and a member of the Communist Party USA. Horne also wrote of Davis’s friendship with the Dunham family in Hawaii: Eventually, Davis] befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago. Horne further documented Davis was “a decisive influence in helping Obama] to find his present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anti-communist and the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation.” After Horne’s speech, the identity of “Frank” was never in doubt, nor his importance in the development of the young Barack Obama. On Dec. 5, 1956, Davis appeared in executive session before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee investigating “the scope of Soviet activity in the United States,” one of the McCarthy-era committees seeking to expose communists considered to be a security threat. Invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Davis refused to answer a direct question asking if he was then a communist. A year earlier, in 1955, a Commission on Subversive Activities organized by the government of the Territory of Hawaii identified Davis as a member of the Communist Party USA. The committee singled out for criticism several articles Davis published in the “Communist Honolulu Record” that were critical of the commission. </p> <p>Was Communist Mentor Intimate with Obama's Mother? </p> <p>This frisky 17-year old teeny bopper lent her punani to a 54-year old pervert resulting in the conception and later download of 0bama for all the world to behold. Filmmaker Reveals New Evidence Frank Marshall Davis Was President's Real Father </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi – Did Barack Obama’s mother pose nude for communist poet and journalist Frank Marshall Davis? Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats? Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation? These are questions filmmaker Joel Gilbert poses in the full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” which argues Frank Marshall Davis is the president’s biological father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama. Gilbert reports he has recently discovered racy photos in vintage fetish and bondage magazines of Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, that he believes were taken by Davis. The photos, he says, bolster his belief that Dunham had an intimate relationship with Davis. Gilbert has given WND a preview of a new “Breaking News” page on his documentary’s website titled “The Intimate Ann Dunham-Frank Marshall Davis Relationship.” On the page, he presents a video that shows some of the 30-plus pin-up photographs he believes Davis took of Obama’s young mother and other models in his home at 2994 Kalihi Street in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 1968, Greenleaf Classics in San Diego published a pornographic novel titled “Sex Rebel Black: Memoirs of a Gash Gourmet,” authored by “Bob Greene,” a pen name Davis later admitted was his own. In the sex novel that Davis claimed was autobiographical, he describes a swinging lifestyle in which he and his wife Helen had sex numerous times with an underage girl named “Anne,” a figure very suggestive of Obama’s mother. As Gilbert documents, Davis was a semi-professional photographer for more than 30 years, beginning when he lived in Chicago. His specialty was taking nude photographs of female models that he called “horizontal cameos.” In a collection of Davis poems published in a book titled “Black Moods,” compiled by his biographer, University of Kansas English Professor John Edgar Tidwell, are 37 written “portraits” grouped in a section subtitled “Horizontal Cameos.” Each poem is dedicated to a different woman identified only by her first name. The second poem is dedicated to “Anne” and reads as follows: </p> <p>Anne In the gangling hours Thin, adolescent hours Before night runs softly Away into the west Anne rises wearily From her tired bed And sleeps Sitting in a chair. </p> <p>In the three nude photographs initially discovered on the Internet in 2008, the young naked model is shown in a living room setting. She is posing in or around a chair, with a Christmas tree and a 1950s Hi-Fi with various jazz vinyl record albums in the background.

The video contains explicit images, with portions blacked out): Gilbert also is the writer and director of the 2010 documentary film “Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad’s Coming War and Obama’s Politics of Defeat.” 2994 Kalihi Street Before releasing a small sample of the pin-up photographs he claims shows a nude Ann Dunham posing for Davis, Gilbert undertook extensive research. He traveled to Hawaii to inspect and photograph the Honolulu address that the FBI file documents as Davis’ residence beginning in 1956. The file shows he moved out in the late 1960s as he was beginning his divorce from his wife, Helen Canfield Davis. The divorce was not finalized until Sept. 30, 1969. “The Davis house is an English Tudor architectural style dwelling, very uncommon for the Hawaii islands,” Gilbert told WND. “There are no similar houses in the neighborhood or anywhere else that I visited in Hawaii.” The current owner of the house gave Gilbert permission to enter, photograph and document the house. “The flooring in the photos of Ann stands out, as at first glance it appears to be expensive wood flooring,” he said. “However, once inside the house and peeling away a corner covered with layers of linoleum, I realized that it was a simple piece of plywood that had been varnished.” Gilbert found one complete original piece of plywood in a shed behind the house that was an exact match to the flooring in the setting where the “Ann Dunham and friends” pin-up photographs were taken. Noteworthy also were the windows appearing in the pin-up photos. “The windows in the living room of Frank’s house were tall and narrow – a design unique to English Tudor style houses,” he noted. “The windows at 2994 Kalihi Street appear to match the tall, narrow windows with their bottom sill low to the floorboards seen in the pin-up photos.” Gilbert took measurements of the windows and the floor at various angles, as well as video footage and still photographs of the living room. As illustrated in his documentary, Gilbert found a newspaper photograph of Davis sitting on a couch in his living room that appears to be an exact match for the couch seen in the pin-up photographs. Pin-Up Investigations Gilbert also tracked down various living experts specializing in 1950s pin-up photography. In the approximately 30 photographs Gilbert has found of various models, including the model he has identified as Dunham, some of the women were photographed alone and others with another female model. In some of the photos the models are nude, while others show them in various costumes. Some scenes reflect bondage or other sadomasochistic behavior. Gilbert showed the photographs to Ira Klaw, a nephew of pin-up photographer Irving Klaw. Ira was able to determine that Irving Klaw was not the photographer – Irving Klaw did not take nude photographs of his pin-up models. Expert J.B. Rund agreed the models were not Klaw quality, but the photos were not purely “amateur.” He explained that the photographer had the sophistication to know how to use the same photo session to take two types of photos that could be sold to two different types of publications – fetish and full nude. Gilbert explained to WND that neither Rund nor Ira Klaw recognized the models or the location of the photo shoots. Rund concluded Gilbert’s photographs had been taken by a semi-professional photographer who was not purely amateur, a description that would fit Davis. Gilbert found that several of the photos in the collection appeared in a magazine called Exotique, published by pin-up photographer Leonard Burtman, who worked in New York City. Gilbert said he was able to establish that while Burtman took most of the photographs appearing in Exotique, he also bought photographs for Exotique from other photographers. He has determined that the model he has identified as Ann Dunham appears in Exotique, but he was unable to find any pin-up expert who could identify the photographer, the models or the settings of the photographs taken at what he assumes was the 2994 Kalihi Street location. “An amateur pin-up photographer like Frank Marshall Davis would have been paid about $4 per negative, while professional photographers were paid by the hour,” Gilbert said. “Later in his life, Frank Marshall Davis spoke about a publishing venture he started that failed. My assumption is that Davis may have tried to create his own fetish or nude magazine in Hawaii and that he sold his photographs to others when the venture failed.” Gilbert found the photographs he had collected appeared in a wide variety of period fetish or nude magazines, including “Bizarre Life,” “Battling Babes” and “Secret Pleasures.” They were all taken in the same living room setting, with the narrow, low-to-the floor windows, the same sitting chair and couch, and the same Hi-Fi with jazz records. Several of the photographs also display a hand-written numbering system that show up in white numbers and letters in the corner margins of the pin-up photos, such as “YA-438.” “I was able to determine that Irving Klaw used this numbering system, but it was not unique to Klaw, and it was not created by Klaw,” Gilbert said. “Various pin-up photographers used this numbering system to distinguish between photo shoots, portions of shoots, models and to keep track of which photos were sold to which publications. The numbers rarely stood for anything in particular.” Regular visits to the Davis home In his film, Gilbert documents that Ann Dunham gave her father, the “Gramps” of Obama’s autobiography, instructions to make sure young Barry would be taken regularly to visit Davis. “Obama chronicles his childhood interaction with Frank Marshall Davis in his autobiography by mentioning ‘Frank’ 25 times, the only person Obama refers to by using his real first name instead of a completely fabricated pseudonym,” Gilbert stressed. Neighbors of Davis have said Obama began visiting Davis every week at his home from the time Obama was 10 years old. Gilbert wonders why. “As Ann Dunham engaged in nefarious activities with Frank Marshall Davis, who was likely involved in pornography and prostitution, why would she bring 10 year-old Barry back from Indonesia and tell her father something to the effect of, ‘I’m going back to Indonesia, but please take young Barry to Frank’s house a few times a week,’” he said. The only scenario in which Obama’s regular visits as a child to Davis’ house would make sense, Gilbert said, is if Davis was the real biological father. Gilbert explained that much of what Obama has told the American public of his childhood has been proven false. “We now know that the family did not stay together in Hawaii until 1962, when the Kenyan Barack Obama went to Harvard to begin his graduate studies as Obama claimed,” Gilbert explained. “Ann Dunham took her infant son with her to Seattle a few weeks after his birth and began studies at the University of Washington, while the Kenyan Obama remained in Hawaii for another year before leaving for Harvard.” The evidence, Gilbert said, “points to the conclusion that Ann Dunham’s relationship with the Kenyan Obama was a ‘sham’ marriage designed to cover up an illicit affair with Frank Marshall Davis, in which the infant had been conceived.” Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains. “It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades,” he said. “To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.” Joel Gilbert’s 97-minute film “Dreams from My Real Father” is on sale HERE See Joel Gilbert’s video of his latest finds - 2:49 (Warning: Viewer discretion advised.

In Hawaii, he became a mentor to Barack Obama, the man who seeks the Presidency of the United States. Kathryn Waddell Takara, Ph.D., a Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii, has written at least two lengthy analysis of Frank M. Davis’s political activities both in Hawaii and while he was living in Chicago. Takara created the first Black Studies department at the U of H in 1971 and is an associate of such notable leftists as Angela Davis and Stokely Carmichael. Takara’s paper, 'Frank Marshall Davis: Black Labor Activist and Outsider Journalist: Social Movements In Hawaii,' describes Davis’ radical activities in Hawaii as both a writer and labor organizer. How this committed Communist became a mentor to Barack Obama remains a mystery, but it is likely that his mother was somehow involved in far left activities in Hawaii and met Davis through her left-wing network on the University of Hawaii campus. Perhaps an enterprising reporter could ask Senator Obama how he met Davis and what sort of influence he may have had on him. Likewise, one can only speculate on the influence his rebellious, left-wing mother had on his political beliefs and aspirations. &#9679; Frank Marshall Davis FBI Files: Pages from the FBI File (This 40-page report includes selected pages from the FBI file which document Davis's Communist history and pro-Soviet and anti-white views - PDF) — FBI File #1 — FBI File #2 — FBI File #3 — FBI File #4 — FBI File #5 — FBI File #6 Lots more on Obama's &quot;Uncle Frank&quot; (Frank Marshall Davis) HERE </p> <p>NEWSBOY POST INVESTIGATES OBAMA'S BIOLOGICAL FATHER In his memoir Barack Obama writes, &quot;Frank Marshall Davis would read us poetry when we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an empied jelly jar.

We have determined that Obama has no birth certificate on record, and the one he submitted last year was a forged document. College Years: When he was 18 years-old Obama formally espoused Islam when he traveled to Pakistan. The New York Times reported that Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. During his years at Occidental College, Obama befriended Wahid Hamid, a fellow student who was an immigrant from Pakistan; and traveled with Obama spending “about three weeks” there, staying in Karachi with the family of a very special college friend shown here, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. One thing that became apparent in NEWSBOY POST'S investigation of Obama's mysterious past became very obvious. Obama has bad taste when it comes to both women and men. </p> <p>On the Day of Ashura, a ritual called Tatbir (also here), was performed where a dagger was used to cut Obama's scalp from ear to ear — leaving that telltale, damning keloidal scar which runs from ear to his crown to his other ear (View more pics of these scars at bottom of this page).Tatbir is performed every year on the 10th day of Islamic month of Moharram (roughly month of November), known as the Day of Ashura. Newsboy Post has been expecting Obama to describe his 'Tatbir' experience; but until he does, we have pictured a Shi'ite Muslim child as he bleeds after he was cut on the head with a dagger during a ceremony marking Ashura. Ashura is the most important day in the Shi'ite calendar, and commemorates the death of &quot;Imam Hussein&quot;, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in the 7th century Battle of Kerbala. Afterwards, Obama dropped the useage of his Indonesian surnames, his adopted one, Barry Soetoro and Soebarakh (our favorite); and for the first time began going by his latest alias — Barack Hussein Obama II. After examining numerous photographs taken by official White House photojournalist Pete Souza, it appears extensive efforts are made to prevent any scar-revealing photos from being released. Of interest to our investigators, is the appointment of Arun S. Chaudhary; a trusted Pakistani Muslim slugged the &quot;YouTube Guru,&quot; who produces all White House in-house propaganda videos and who we feel is instrumental in the video scrubbing of the head scar. We're also looking into Obama's longtime barber, Zariff (uses one name), a Muslim who believes 9/11 was an inside job. And despite Obama's declared deep Christian devotion, he's shown his dedication to diversity by surrounding himself with Zariff and countless other Muslims in the White House. In summary, we are not sorry to report — the current American president is a fraud. </p> <p>Editorial: The Civil War of 2016 — U.S. Military Officers Are Told to Plan to Crush 'Tea Party Extremists' Imagine TEA PARTY extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles. At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Col. Kevin Benson of the Army's University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario. The article is a choppy patchwork of doctrinal jargon and liberal nightmare. The authors make a quasi-legal case for military action and then apply the Army's Operating Concept 2016-2028 to the situation. They write bloodlessly that “once it is put into play, Americans will expect the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas.” They claim that “the Army cannot disappoint the American people, especially in such a moment,” not pausing to consider that using such efficient, deadly force against U.S. citizens would create a monumental political backlash and severely erode government legitimacy. The vision is hard to take seriously. As retired Army Brig. Gen. Russell D. Howard, a former professor at West Point, observed earlier in his career, “I am a colonel, colonels write a lot of crazy stuff, but no one listens to colonels, so I don’t see the problem.” Twenty years ago, then-Air Force Lt. Col. Charles J. Dunlap Jr. created a stir with an article in Parameters titled “The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012.” It carried a disclaimer that the coup scenario was “purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces, and is emphatically not a prediction.” The scenario presented in Small Wars Journal isn’t a literary device but an operational lay-down intended to present the rationale and mechanisms for Americans to fight Americans. Col. Benson and Ms. Weber contend, “Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.” This is a dark, pessimistic and wrongheaded view of what military leaders should spend their time studying. A professor at the Joint Forces Staff College was relieved of duty in June for uttering the heresy that the United States is at war with Islam. The Obama administration contended the professor had to be relieved because what he was teaching was not U.S. policy. Because there is no disclaimer attached to the Small Wars piece, it is fair to ask, at least in Col. Benson’s case, whether his views reflect official policy regarding the use of U.S. military force against American citizens. What Sinister Motive Was Behind Homeland Security Buying 450 Million Rounds of Hollow Point Bullets? The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has awarded defense contractor ATK with an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement for .40 caliber hollow point ammunition. According to an official ATK Press Release, U.S. agents will receive a maximum of 450 million rounds over a five-year period. ATK announced that it is being awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement from the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE) for .40 caliber ammunition. This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds. ATK was the incumbent and won the contract with its HST bullet, which has proven itself in the field. ...] “We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE,” said Ron Johnson, President of ATK’s Security and Sporting group. The hollow point, of course, features a pitted or hollow tip intended to expand upon entering its target. ATK says its ammunition is “engineered for 100-percent weight retention, limits collateral damage, and avoids over-penetration” — all hallmarks of the hollow point. This is not the first time DHS has placed such an order, however. In 2009, it signed a contract with Winchester for the procurement of 200 million hollow points. The order may seem unusually high, but gun experts I talked to said it is not necessarily unusual and simply reflects a long-running practice by DHS and law enforcement agencies to use any remaining budget surplus on items routinely used and that would not be called into question. The idea being that if an agency does not use its entire budget in expenditures, the government will lower its budget the following year. On the other hand, the decreased retail availability for hollow points does drive up demand, and hence price for such ammunition. Whether the consequence is an intended one, remains to be seen. So is this a calculated move by the government to curb ammunition availability to civilians or is it simply another way for it to spend money? Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry: Who Does The Government Intend To Shoot? By Major General Jerry Curry, USA (Ret.) -- The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens. What would be the target of these 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It can’t simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows. Potentially each hollow nose bullet represents a dead American. If so, why would the U.S. government want the SSA to kill 174,000 of our citizens, even during a time of civil unrest? Or is the purpose to kill 174,000 of the nation’s military and replace them with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) special security forces, forces loyal to the Administration, not to the Constitution? All my life I’ve handled firearms. When a young boy growing up on my father’s farm in Pennsylvania Dad’s first rule of firearms training was, “Never point a gun at someone, in fun or otherwise, unless you intend to shoot them. If you shoot someone, shoot to kill.” I’ve never forgotten his admonition. It stayed with me through my Boy Scout training, when I enlisted in the army as a Private to fight in the Korea War, during my days as a Ranger and Paratrooper and throughout my thirty-four year military career. If this were only a one time order of ammunition, it could easily be dismissed. But there is a pattern here. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has ordered 46,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition. Notice that all of these purchases are for the lethal hollow nose bullets. These bullets are not being purchased and stored for squirrel or coyote hunting. This is serious ammunition manufactured to be used for serious purposes. In the war in Iraq, our military forces expended approximately 70 million rounds per year. In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public. I fear that Congress won’t take these ammunition purchases seriously until they are all led from Capitol Hill in handcuffs. Why buy all this ammunition unless you plan to use it. Unknown to Congress, Does DHS plan to declare war on some country? Shouldn’t Congress hold hearings on why the Administration is stockpiling this ammunition all across the nation? How will it be used; what are the Administration’s plans? Obama is a deadly serious, persistent man. Once he focuses on an object, he pursues it to the end. What is his focus here? All of these rounds of ammunition can only be used to kill American citizens, though there is enough ammunition being ordered to kill, in addition to every American citizen, also every Iranian, Syrian or Mexican. There is simply too much of it. And this much ammunition can’t be just for training, there aren’t that many weapons and “shooters” in the U.S. to fire it. Perhaps it is to be used to arm illegal immigrants? We have enough military forces to maintain law and order in the U.S. even during times of civil unrest. We have local police, backed up by each state’s National Guard, backed up by the Department of Defense. So in addition to all these forces why does DHS need its own private army? Why do the SSA, NOAA and other government agencies need to create their own civilian security forces armed with hollow nose bullets? Were I the JCS, and if I wasn’t already fully briefed on this matter, I’d stop the purchase of hollow point bullets, ask the secretary of Defense why all this ammunition is being purchased and spread around the country? If I got answers like the ones Congress got during the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious – I’d start tracking all ammunition deliveries nationwide to find out what organizations and units are using them, for what purpose and, if it is not constitutional, prepare to counteract whatever it is that they are doing. This is a deadly serious business. I hope I’m wrong, but something smells rotten. And If the Congress isn’t going to do its duty and investigate this matter fully, the military will have to protect the Constitution, the nation, and our citizens.

WorldNetDaily (WND) has reported since 2008 that an Indonesian school record shows Obama attended school in the Asian nation registered as an Indonesian citizen and as a Muslim. Wayne Allyn Root, in an interview with fill-in host Joe Pagliarulo on the “Glenn Beck Program,” said he received a phone call at 4 a.m. this morning from an investigative reporter with Breitbart.com probing Obama’s past in Indonesia. The reporter, according to Root, a former Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee, said he has “absolute proof” Obama was adopted by his mother’s new husband and became an Indonesian citizen. “It’s a fact, it’s not a question,” the reporter told Root. “I’m looking at the proof] right now.” Information about Obama’s Indonesian schooling first surfaced in January 2007 in a blog called An American Expat in Southeast Asia. The blog documented Obama was registered Jan. 1, 1968, under the name Barry Soetoro, with serial number 203, in Class 1B at the Catholic Franciscan Assisi Primary School in Jakarta. School records listed Barry Soetoro as an Indonesian citizen born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. His religion was listed as Islam. According to the blog, school documents recorded Barry’s father as L. Soetoro Ma, a worker in the director general’s office in the TNI Topography division of the Indonesian army. The records indicated Barry attended the Franciscan school for three years, until Class 3. WND reported Aug. 17, 2008, that conformation for Obama’s attendance in the Indonesian school came with the surfacing of a 2007 Associated Press photograph by Tatan Syuflana, an Indonesian AP reporter and photographer. The photo showed Obama’s registration card at the Assisi school. An AP spokesman confirmed to WND that the photograph of the registration card was authentic. The listing of Obama in an official record in a foreign country as a foreign citizen should have prompted a major media investigation. Obama in Islam: A Muslim After attending the Catholic school in Jakarta, Obama was enrolled at a public school. WND has been unable to find an Indonesian law in force when Obama was in Jakarta that required a child to be an Indonesian citizen to attend public schools in Indonesia. Indonesian law at the time required instruction in Islam, a contention confirmed by two academic studies done by Lambert Kelabora, a lecturer in Indonesian Education at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. Writing in Asian Survey in 1976, Kelabora wrote that Sukarno’s defeat of the Partai Komunis Indonesia, the Communist Party of Indonesia, in an unsuccessful coup led to changes in religious instruction in the Indonesian public school curriculum. “With the victory over the PKI in their hands,” Kelabora wrote, “Moslem groups had no difficulty in arguing that it was religion that had saved the country from Communism, and that it was time to make religion compulsory for everyone in order to strengthen the moral fibre of the nation.” As a result, Islamic studies throughout Indonesian institutions were intensified “in the communist prison camps, in factories, in offices, and in all educational institutions.” The study of Islam was then made mandatory in all Indonesian educational institutions in the country, including pre-primary schools. All students were required to increase their study of Islam to four lessons a week, some 10 percent of the curriculum, elevating the study of Islam “to the most important subject in the school curriculum.” In a 1979 paper Kelabora published in Comparative Education, titled “Assumptions Underlying Religious Instruction in Indonesia,” he stressed “the changing political and security situation in the country since 1949 has made religion a compulsory subject for all, from pre-primary to tertiary level, from the communist prison camps to factories and government establishments.” Even Kim Barker, a Chicago Tribune foreign correspondent, in an article focused on “debunking the myth Obama had attended a Madrassa,” admitted Barry Soetoro attended the mosque with his father to pray. Barker interviewed Israella Darmawan, Barry’s first grade teacher at the Assisi school, the teacher previously interviewed by the Los Angeles Times. Barker reported her as saying, “Sometimes Lolo went to the mosque to pray, but he rarely socialized with people. Rarely, Barry went to the mosque with Lolo.” In an interview with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, Obama was questioned about his Islamic education. After acknowledging that he once got in trouble for making faces during Quran study classes in his elementary school in Indonesia, Obama recited for Kristoff the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer. It reads as follows: “Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! I witness that there is no God but Allah I witness that there is no God but Allah I witness that Muhammad is his prophet …” Kristof noted Obama recited the prayer “with a first-rate accent.” “In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks),” Kristoff wrote, “Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’” The lines of the Adhan are very similar to the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of the oneness of Allah and the acceptance of Muhammad as his final prophet. Recitation of the Shahada is one of the most important of the Five Pillars of Islam and is performed daily by Muslims worldwide. Maya Soetoro: Obama’s ‘Adopted’ WND reported April 28, 2011, one day after the White House posted a PDF file it claims is Obama’s authentic long-form birth certificate, Maya Soetoro-Ng, Obama’s Indonesian half-sister, suggested on a blog that Obama was adopted by her stepfather. On a Facebook page, Soetoro-Ng wrote to a woman who had met her in Hawaii after Madelyn Dunham, the mother of Stanley Ann Dunham and grandmother to both Maya and Barack, passed away in 2008. Soetoro-Ng was objecting to having a conversation with a critic of her half-brother and said she had been misquoted as saying her whole family was Muslim. She wrote: “I did not say my brother was a Muslim. I did say that I was more philosophically Buddhist. I told you that you were upsetting me. You said that you were not trying to upset me but wanted to know the truth about (Raila) Odinga (a Muslim for whom Barack Obama campaigned in the 2007 presidential race in Kenya.) I told you I didn’t know who that was and had never met him. You mentioned the adoption laws of Indonesia that you saw as related to my brother’s legitimacy (you were suggesting that because my father, his stepfather, had adopted him, that my brother was no longer American) and I said that I had no idea about Indonesian adoption law.” WND noted that while not a definitive statement, Maya’s post on Facebook supports the registration of Obama at the Catholic school in Jakarta as an Indonesian citizen. Indonesian Citizenship Law The Indonesian citizenship law in effect when Obama was there was titled “Laws of the Republic of Indonesia, Number 62 Year 1958, Regarding Citizenship of the Republic of Indonesia (LNRI 1958/113).” Article 2(1) deals with the citizenship of foreign children and reads as follows: A foreign child not yet 5 years of age who is adopted by a Republic of Indonesia state citizen, acquires Republic of Indonesian citizenship, when the adoption is declared lawful by the District Court of the place of residence of the person who adopts the child. If Obama were adopted by Lolo Soetoro after the age of 5, he would have had to undergo the Indonesian naturalization process to become an Indonesian citizen. If Obama had been naturalized, he would have been required to renounce U.S. citizenship, prove Indonesian language proficiency and knowledge of the history of Indonesia. To this point, no official Indonesian adoption papers proving Lolo Soetoro legally adopted Obama have been presented; nor is there any proof Obama was naturalized as an Indonesian citizen when he was there with his stepfather and mother. Obama ‘Soebarkah’ State Department documents released in two separate FOIA requests indicate that Ann Dunham apparently identified her son with an Indonesian surname and asked the State Department to drop him from her U.S. passport. In a passport amendment she submitted in person to the State Department at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, on Aug. 13, 1968, less than a year after joining her second husband in Indonesia, she petitioned to renew her expiring passport. In the amendment form, she also requested “Barack Obama II (Soebarkah)” be removed from her U.S. Passport No. 777788. Her listing of her son’s name as “Barack Hussein Obama (Soebarkah)” suggests she intended to indicate he was an Indonesian citizen. Until the State Department released the document in July 2010, the surname Soebarkah had never surfaced in reference to Barack Hussein Obama Jr. Indonesians do not typically use surnames, as is the custom in Western nations. Surnames may be used to convey ethnic information and even within families surnames may vary. Soebarkah may be a variation of the Soetoro surname. </p> <p>The (Possible) Coming Romney Landslide! </p> <p>By DICK MORRIS (Commentator, pollster, campaign consultant, former advisor to Bill Clinton) -- THE REAL POLL NUMBERS: The media is trying to create a sense of momentum and of inevitability about the Obama candidacy. One benighted Newsweek reporter even speculated about a possible Democratic landslide. On Friday, I saw the real numbers. These state-by-state polls, taken by an organization I trust (after forty years of polling) show the real story. The tally is based on more than 600 likely voter interviews in each swing state within the past eight days. The trend line is distinctly pro-Romney. Of the thirteen states studied, he improved or Obama slipped in nine states while the reverse happened in only four. To read the media, one would think that Romney had a terrible month. In fact, the exact reverse is true. Romney is currently leading in every state McCain carried plus: Indiana, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Nevada, North Carolina, and Colorado. If he carries these states, he’ll have 228 electoral votes of the 270 he needs to win. To win the election, Romney would then have to carry Florida where he trails by two points, and either Virginia (behind by two) or Ohio where he’s down by only one. If he carries all three of these states and also wins all the others where Obama is now at 50% or less – Iowa, New Mexico, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey — he will get 351 electoral votes, a landslide about equal to Obama’s 363 vote tally in 2008. The strong probability is that Romney does, in fact, carry Florida, Ohio, and Virginia and a share of the other states where Obama is below 50% of the vote. So don’t believe the garbage being put out by the media. The attempt to portray Romney as not catching on and as dropping in the polls is ludicrous. It is, at best, the product of incompetent polling and, at worst, the result of deliberate media bias. But Romney is winning and expanding his lead each week. That’s the real story. </p> <p>KARL ROVE: For Romney, Even Means Ahead After absorbing three months of negative ads from President Obama, the GOP challenger is raising his game in time for the nominating convention. Wednesday's Gallup poll had President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney essentially tied, with Mr. Obama at 47% and Mr. Romney at 46%. That's good news for the challenger: Mr. Romney has absorbed a punishing three-month Obama television barrage that drained the incumbent's war chest. Historically, undecided voters tend to break late for the challenger. Mr. Romney and his campaign have also raised their game. After Mr. Obama declared on July 13 that &quot;If you've got a business, you didn't build that,&quot; Mr. Romney went on offense, saying the following Tuesday in Pennsylvania that the notion entrepreneurs didn't build their businesses was &quot;insulting.&quot; Wednesday in Ohio, Mr. Romney attacked Mr. Obama for not having met with his Jobs Council for six months. Thursday in Massachusetts, Mr. Romney belittled the White House's explanation that the president had failed to do so because he &quot;has a lot on his plate.&quot; The following Tuesday in Nevada before the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mr. Romney criticized Mr. Obama over cuts in defense and veterans care. Each time, Mr. Romney's message was delivered in the morning and dominated the day's coverage. That change appears now to be standard procedure for Team Romney.

By Michael Tomasky (Left-wing writer) -- Liberals don’t want to jinx it. It terrifies the right. And the press would prefer a nail-biter. But the fact is that finding Romney’s path to victory is getting harder every day. There’s a secret lurking behind everything you’re reading about the upcoming election, a secret that all political insiders know—or should—but few are talking about, most likely because it takes the drama out of the whole business. The secret is the electoral college, and the fact is that the more you look at it, the more you come to conclude that Mitt Romney has to draw an inside straight like you’ve never ever seen in a movie to win this thing. This is especially true now that it seems as if Pennsylvania isn’t really up for grabs. Romney’s paths to 270 are few. First, let’s discuss Pennsylvania. There has been good reason for Democrats to sweat this state. True, Obama won it handily in 2008, by 10 points. But it’s a state that is older and whiter and more working-class than most of America. Obama benefited from all the unique circumstances of 2008 that helped him across the country, but if ever there were a state where the “well, we gave the black guy a chance and he blew it” meme might catch on, it’s the Keystone State. But the jobless rate there is 7.5 percent, well below the national average. Democratic voter registration has held its own. The Philly suburbs have grown. And this odious voter ID law is facing meaningful challenges. A hearing on the law’s validity has just been concluded. A state judge says he’ll rule on the law’s constitutionality the week of Aug. 13. It sounds as if the law’s opponents made a stronger case at the hearing than its supporters. In any case, the losing side will appeal to the state Supreme Court. But whatever happens with that law, Pennsylvania has been trending back toward Obama lately. He now holds a lead there of nearly seven points, and he’s close to 50. And as I wrote the other day, Nate Silver now gives Barack Obama a slightly better chance of winning Montana than he does Romney of winning Pennsylvania. That tells you something. The Democrats’ Pennsylvania sweat also had to do with its size—20 electoral votes, tied with Illinois for fifth biggest in the country. Democrats have been able to count on those votes for 20 years. Losing them would be a dagger right in the heart, a maybe irreparable sundering of the party’s electoral coalition. Imagine Republicans losing usually reliable Missouri (10 EV’s) and Arizona (11). Big ouch. So if Pennsylvania is off the boards, let’s look around. Imagine it’s election night, say 10:45 east coast time. Four eastern states haven’t been called yet: Ohio (18), Virginia (13), North Carolina (15), and Florida (29). Also, in some Western states, the polls haven’t closed, or the races are too tight to project just yet—Colorado and Nevada, say. Arizona has just been called for Romney. At this point, Romney actually leads, 188 to 182. In this scenario I’m assuming Obama has won Iowa (6), which is admittedly close but where his lead has been stable at three or four points, and New Hampshire (4), where Obama has a similar fairly small but stable lead, and Michigan (16), where the gap appears to be opening up a little. So it’s a six-vote Romney edge. They’re feeling great up in Boston. Especially with the big Eastern four still up in the air. Right?Not really. Let’s look at these West Coast states. Even though they’re still voting in California, obviously Obama is going to win it (55). And equally obviously, he’s going to win Washington (12) and Oregon (7), where neither side even bothered to spend a dime. Throw in Hawaii (4). Those 78 votes haul Obama up to 260. That’s something to keep in mind for election night: Whatever Obama’s number is at 10 pm Eastern, add those 78 EV’s—they’re a mortal lock, and a hefty insurance policy. If he wins Nevada (6) and Colorado (9), it’s over. In other words, Obama can lose the big Eastern four—Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida: all of ’em!—and still be reelected.And barring some huge cataclysm, he’s not losing all four of those states. If he wins even one—say Virginia, the smallest of the four—then Romney has to win Colorado, Iowa, and New Hampshire; all possible, certainly, but all states where he has been behind, narrowly but consistently, for weeks or months. The list of states where Obama holds that narrow but consistent lead is long: Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, and New Hampshire. Michigan and Wisconsin are no longer really narrow. Florida is more or less a dead heat. The bottom line is that of the dozen or so key swing states, Romney leads only in one: North Carolina. And that lead developed only over the summer. We’ll see whether the Democrats’ decision to convene in Charlotte has any impact on Romney’s three-point margin. It’s beginning to look like Obama can lose the big Eastern four—Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida: all of ’em!—and still be reelected. All this explains the interesting little chart toward the lower right-hand corner of Nate Silver’s home page, headed “Electoral Vote Distribution.” It rates the probability that Obama receives a certain number of electoral votes. Most outcomes, in a range running from 150 EV’s up to 400, rate around a 2 percent chance of Obama receiving that number. The highest spike on the chart? It’s at around 330 EV’s, which Silver reckons Obama has a 14 percent chance of hitting. Now, most political journalists would chuckle derisively at the idea that Obama is going to carry home 330 EV’s. Deride away. And while you do, bear in mind that Silver called 50 out of 51 states last time (counting D.C.; he missed only Indiana) and every single Senate race.Sure, something big could happen to alter the dynamic completely. But we’ve watched these guys go, what, six or seven rounds now (out of 15). After seven rounds, you can pretty well tell some things. All the supposedly game-changing events of the last few weeks haven’t changed much of anything. This is a paradoxical situation that has little or no modern precedent, which makes it hard for people to accept. Liberals are too nervous to think it, reporters too intent on a “down to the wire” narrative, and conservatives too furious and disbelieving, but it’s shaping up to be true: An extremely close election that on election night itself stands a surprisingly good chance of being not that close at all. </p> <p>Suburbanites — Run for the Hills, Obama's Coming After You! Obama's Marxist Agenda: Rob the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities! By Stanley Kurtz -- My new book, &quot;Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities,&quot; was published August 2nd. There I show how the suburbs are the target of Obama’s redistributive plans. Obama blames the suburbs for the plight of the cities. And while he took this view from his radical mentors, we are talking about a live issue. Although the public knows little about it, Obama actively coordinates his administration’s urban/suburban policy with his old community organizing mentors and colleagues. Their plans for America are breathtakingly ambitious, and Obama has already laid the groundwork for a far-reaching social transformation in his second term. Should the president be reelected, the heretofore quiet alliance between Obama and his community organizing buddies is set to usher in a new phase of divisive class warfare between America’s suburbs and cities. Suburbanites are the key swing constituency of the 2012 election. If word of Obama’s redistributive plans for the suburbs gets out, it just might have an impact on this election. That is why I wrote &quot;Spreading the Wealth.&quot; I’ll have more to say about all this a bit later this week. In the meantime, accounts of the book have begun to appear. Ron Radosh has the first full-scale review. Roger Kimball offers an early assessment as well. Breitbart.com features an article about the book today. The Brietbart piece includes a great picture of Obama meeting his old community-organizing mentor in the Oval Office. Finally, special thanks to Rush Limbaugh for taking up the political implications of the book’s revelations on his show last week. Book Excerpt: Burn Down the Suburbs? </p> <p>Middle-class suburban supporters of the president take note. It isn’t just the pocketbooks of the “1 percent” he’s after; it’s yours. </p> <p>Editor’s Note: This article is adapted from &quot;Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities,&quot; by Stanley Kurtz. By Stanley Kurtz -- President Obama is not a fan of America’s suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administration’s plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of “regionalism,” the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation. To this end, the president has already put programs in place designed to push the country toward a sweeping social transformation in a possible second term. The goal: income equalization via a massive redistribution of suburban tax money to the cities. Obama’s plans to undercut the political and economic independence of America’s suburbs reach back decades. The community organizers who trained him in the mid-1980s blamed the plight of cities on taxpayer “flight” to suburbia. Beginning in the mid-1990s, Obama’s mentors at the Gamaliel Foundation (a community-organizing network Obama helped found) formally dedicated their efforts to the budding fight against suburban “sprawl.” From his positions on the boards of a couple of left-leaning Chicago foundations, Obama channeled substantial financial support to these efforts. On entering politics, he served as a dedicated ally of his mentors’ anti-suburban activism. The alliance endures. One of Obama’s original trainers, Mike Kruglik, has hived off a new organization called Building One America, which continues Gamaliel’s anti-suburban crusade under another name. Kruglik and his close allies, David Rusk and Myron Orfield, intellectual leaders of the “anti-sprawl” movement, have been quietly working with the Obama administration for years on an ambitious program of social reform. In July of 2011, Kruglik’s Building One America held a conference at the White House. Orfield and Rusk made presentations, and afterwards Kruglik personally met with the president in the Oval Office. The ultimate goal of the movement led by Kruglik, Rusk, and Orfield is quite literally to abolish the suburbs. Knowing that this could never happen through outright annexation by nearby cities, they’ve developed ways to coax suburbs to slowly forfeit their independence. One approach is to force suburban residents into densely packed cities by blocking development on the outskirts of metropolitan areas, and by discouraging driving with a blizzard of taxes, fees, and regulations. Step two is to move the poor out of cities by imposing low-income-housing quotas on development in middle-class suburbs. Step three is to export the controversial “regional tax-base sharing” scheme currently in place in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area to the rest of the country. Under this program, a portion of suburban tax money flows into a common regional pot, which is then effectively redistributed to urban, and a few less well-off “inner-ring” suburban, municipalities. The Obama administration, stocked with “regionalist” appointees, has been advancing this ambitious plan quietly for the past four years. Efforts to discourage driving and to press development into densely packed cities are justified by reference to fears of global warming. Leaders of the crusade against “sprawl” very consciously use environmental concerns as a cover for their redistributive schemes. The centerpiece of the Obama administration’s anti-suburban plans is a little-known and seemingly modest program called the Sustainable Communities Initiative. The “regional planning grants” funded under this initiative — many of them in battleground states like Florida, Virginia, and Ohio — are set to recommend redistributive policies, as well as transportation and development plans, designed to undercut America’s suburbs. Few have noticed this because the program’s goals are muffled in the impenetrable jargon of “sustainability,” while its recommendations are to be unveiled only in a possible second Obama term. Obama’s former community-organizing mentors and colleagues want the administration to condition future federal aid on state adherence to the recommendations served up by these anti-suburban planning commissions. That would quickly turn an apparently modest set of regional-planning grants into a lever for sweeping social change. In light of Obama’s unbroken history of collaboration with his organizing mentors on this anti-suburban project, and his proven willingness to impose ambitious policy agendas on the country through heavy-handed regulation, this project seems likely to advance. A second and equally ambitious facet of Obama’s anti-suburban blueprint involves the work of Kruglik’s Building One America. Traditionally, Alinskyite community organizers mobilize leftist church groups. Kruglik’s group goes a step further by organizing not only the religious left but politicians from relatively less-well-off inner-ring suburbs. The goal is to build coalitions between urban and inner-ring suburban state legislators, in a bid to force regional tax-base sharing on middle-class suburbanites. That is how the practice came to Minnesota. The July 2011 White House conference, gathering inner-ring suburban politicians for presentations by Rusk and Orfield, was an effort to place the prestige of the Obama administration behind Kruglik’s organizing efforts. A multi-state battle over regional tax-base “sharing,” abetted by the president, would usher in divisive class warfare on a scale likely to dwarf the puny efforts of Occupy Wall Street. Obama’s little-known plans to undermine the political and economic autonomy of America’s suburbs constitute a policy initiative similar in ambition to health-care reform, the stimulus, or “cap-and-trade.” Obama’s anti-suburban plans also supply the missing link that explains his administration’s overall policy architecture. Since the failure of Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty and the collapse of federal urban policy, leftist theorists of community organizing have advocated a series of moves designed to quietly redistribute tax money to the cities. Health-care reform and federal infrastructure spending (as in the stimulus) are backed by organizers as the best ways to reconstitute an urban policy without directly calling it that. A campaign against suburban “sprawl” under the guise of environmentalism is the next move. Open calls for suburban tax-base “sharing” are the final and most controversial link in the chain of a reconstituted and redistributive urban policy. President Obama is following this plan. Middle-class suburban supporters of the president take note. It isn’t just the pocketbooks of the “1 percent” he’s after; it’s yours. </p> <p>'First Female Shadow President Jarrett' Refused to Make 'Gutsy Call' on Osama Raid — 3 Times! At the urging of PUPPET MASTER Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission, according to an explosive new book scheduled for release August 21. The Daily Caller has seen a portion of the chapter in which the stunning revelation appears. In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book. Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning. Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the White House blamed the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. But when Miniter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed ideal conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders. “President Obama’s greatest success was actually his greatest failure,” Miniter told The Daily Caller Friday. ”Leading From Behind,“ he said, traces the arc of six key Obama administration decisions, and shows how the president made them — and, often, failed to make them. Another chapter, he told TheDC, concerns the push to pass the Affordable Care Act. The president, Miniter said, was less interested than then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in passing his own signature legislative achievement. Osama bin Laden steered the global operations of the al-Qaida terror network until his death last year at the hands of the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six. The president and his surrogates have made the terrorist leader’s death a focal point in Obama’s re-election campaign, painting Obama as a decisive leader who took down America’s greatest mortal enemy.

No president in the long history of this republic has had a mentor like Obama's. Frank Marshall Davis was a literal -- and I mean literal -- card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. I publish Davis's Communist Party number (47544) on the cover of the book, and fill an appendix with declassified FBI documents and Soviet archival material. Those documents reveal a Davis so suspicious that he was placed on the federal government's Security Index, which meant he could be immediately arrested if war broke out between the United States and USSR. With that sort of pro-Soviet influence throughout his adolescence (1970-79), Barack Obama would have trouble getting a security clearance for an entry-level government job, let alone sit in the Oval Office. Nonetheless, Obama sits in that Oval Office today thanks to four factors: the American voter, a scandalously biased media, a skillful election strategy charted by David Axelrod, and the careful nurturing of Valerie Jarrett. And most remarkable, Axelrod's and Jarrett's backgrounds and mentors connect to Obama's background and mentor in a most intriguing way. It's a stunning story, hard to believe. Follow closely: Continued &gt;&gt; </p> <p>Who is Puppet Master David Axelrod? By Paul Kengor -- Obama's main man will do whatever it takes to fell Republicans and conservatives. Where does his ruthlessness and drive come from? Getting Barack Obama elected president would be &quot;something you could really be proud of for the rest of your life,&quot; said David Axelrod in January 2007, a month before the young Illinois senator proclaimed his candidacy. &quot;It would really change politics in a positive way.&quot; Axelrod, already an established political consultant, had in front of him a potential huge star, a game changer—a political advent. He saw in Obama a boy wonder, at once compelling, winsome, engaging, historic, spiritual, a hope-filled, hope-emanating &quot;agent of change.&quot; The consultant had a candidate who could sail to the stars. Axelrod scheduled the ascension for a Saturday in February, year of our Lord, 2007. The site was Springfield, Illinois, where another timeless figure, Abraham Lincoln, once held forth. The Anointed One bestrode the frozen ground before a mesmerized crowd of 15,000 liberal faithful. There, Barack Obama proceeded to invoke Lincoln a half dozen times in a speech guided by the hand of Axelrod, whose personal bookshelf is packed with Lincoln biographies. The assembled ached and awed as Obama offered them not mere leadership but transcendence, an overcoming of the &quot;smallness of our politics,&quot; of the &quot;challenges&quot; of the &quot;generation,&quot; and of the &quot;failure of leadership&quot; in America and on the planet. Once the Obama '08 campaign was in full force, David Axelrod did not relent, ramping up the appeal, packaging and selling and heralding this Illinois marvel of singular historical magnificence: &quot;I think he's unique, and he offers something very special and important in these times,&quot; said &quot;the Ax&quot; of Barack. &quot;He can heal this country and move it forward in a way that perhaps no one else can.&quot; Obama could calm the waters, commanding them to be still. Americans need only rise up, grab his hand, walk, and be healed; they need only assent and accept the gift. Hope and change had come to rescue them. Here was a form of change unlike anything this nation had ever seen, a politics of meaning to make Hillary Clinton blush—and lose. That was the message. Obama was the message. But there was a messenger behind the message. All of it, right down to the very words &quot;hope and change,&quot; was David Axelrod's doing. Axelrod was no mere spinster or political consultant. He was the architect and author of the Obama message. The Los Angeles Times, in one of many media puff-pieces on Axelrod, correctly called him the &quot;keeper&quot; of the sacred message in an image-based campaign in which &quot;message is everything.&quot; The New York Times dubbed him &quot;Obama's Narrator.&quot;He is imager of the image and narrator of the narrative. No single person is more responsible for making Barack Obama president. Come November 2008, it was nothing short of a stunning change for America, a genuinely historical feat the man known as Ax hopes to repeat in November 2012. Continued &gt;&gt; </p> <p>Who is Puppet Master Valerie Jarrett? By Edward Klein -- Trying to figure out Valerie Jarrett’s mysterious hold on Barack and Michelle Obama is a favorite guessing game in the parlors and dining rooms of Washington. No other White House official in history has enjoyed such a unique relationship with both a president and a first lady, and yet the mainstream media have ignored Jarrett’s enormous influence over the shape and direction of the Obama administration. Jarrett’s official title — senior adviser and assistant to the president for intergovernmental affairs and public engagement — doesn’t begin to do justice to her unrivaled status in the White House. She is Ground Zero in the Obama operation — the first couple’s first friend and consigliere, the last person to leave the Oval Office after meetings, and the only White House official who dines with the first family in their private quarters at night. “Valerie is the quintessential insider,” one of her longtime friends told me during an interview for my book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House. “She functions as the eyes, ears, and nose of the president and first lady. She tells them who’s saying what about who, who’s loyal and who’s not. She advises them about who they should see when they visit a city or a foreign country. She determines who gets invited to the White House and who is left out in the cold.” In the White House pecking order, Jarrett has more clout than the president’s chief of staff. During the savage internecine warfare between Jarrett and Obama’s first two chiefs of staff — Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley — Obama sided most of the time with Jarrett, a classic limousine liberal who believes that Obama was elected president in order to engineer social change. Ultimately, Jarrett emasculated Emanuel and Daley and forced them from their jobs. She has also been responsible for much of the incompetence and amateurism that have been the hallmarks of Obama’s time in office. Indeed, Jarrett has been on the wrong side of practically every consequential issue to come across the president’s desk. Some examples of her bonehead advice: </p> <p>&#9679; Though both Emanuel and political strategist David Axelrod warned Obama time and again that he didn’t have the votes to ram a comprehensive healthcare bill through Congress, Jarrett was among those who persuaded the president to ignore their advice and go for broke. The result: the hugely expensive, unworkable, unpopular, and probably unconstitutional program known as Obamacare. &#9679; Emanuel tangled with Jarrett over her effort to put the prestige of the presidency behind Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Emanuel believed that Jarrett was working on behalf of her old boss, Mayor Daley, and his political cronies, who stood to benefit from the billions of dollars that would be spent on the Olympics. That idea seemed to be lost on the president, who went to Copenhagen to make an impassioned plea for the Olympics, and came back home with egg on his face. &#9679; Jarrett gave her stamp of approval for the $535 million taxpayer-funded loan guarantee to Solyndra, the California solar company that went belly up. Jarrett had close ties to the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which controlled 35.7 percent of Solyndra. The foundation had made a sizable donation to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where Jarrett once served as chairwoman and where one of Obama’s best friends, Eric Whitaker, is currently executive vice president. &#9679; When Jarrett pushed Obama’s proposal to require church-run hospitals and universities to give their employees free contraception, chief of staff Bill Daley secretly arranged an Oval Office meeting between the president and New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic bishops, who argued that the policy violated the principle of religious freedom. When Jarrett learned about Daley’s end-run, she went to the president and vented her anger. After that, Daley realized his days were numbered and resigned. &#9679; Like Obama, Jarrett has a fundamental lack of respect for businessmen. In a typical blunder that sent shudders through the business community, she dismissed Tom Donohue, the highly regarded CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, as irrelevant, saying that she preferred to deal with “real” industry executives. &#9679; Jarrett’s lack of judgment in domestic affairs has been matched by her inexperience in international and military affairs. She urged the president not to send in a Navy SEAL team to get Osama bin Laden — the one time that we know of when Obama failed to take Jarrett’s advice. </p> <p>If Jarrett is wrong so often, why does President Obama trust her above all others and continue to run every decision by her? In part, her influence stems from the fact that Jarrett is the president’s trusted watchdog. She protects the vainglorious and thin-skinned Obama from critics and complainers who might deflate his ego. No one gets past Jarrett and sees the president if they have a grievance, or a chip on their shoulder, or even an incompatible point of view. That goes for such high-profile supporters as Oprah Winfrey and Caroline Kennedy, who have been largely frozen out of the White House because Jarrett believes they would use the opportunity of a meeting with Obama to push their own competing agenda. Despite her impeccable social credentials, Jarrett’s record before she went to Washington was spotty at best. After Mayor Daley made her commissioner of planning, she became embroiled in a massive screw-up in the city’s public housing revitalization plan, which cost Chicago millions of dollars in overruns. Daley fired her without explanation. After she left city hall, Jarrett became CEO of Habitat Executive Services, where she earned $300,000 in salary and $550,000 in deferred compensation. She managed a federally subsidized housing complex that was seized by the government after inspectors found crime-infested slum conditions and widespread blight. Throughout her career, Jarrett has failed upward. Today she is at the pinnacle of power as Michelle Obama’s closest confidant and Barack Obama’s political soul mate. Though she is the White House official responsible for “public engagement,” she has conspicuously failed to engage. I heard this complaint about Jarrett from practically everyone I interviewed — Republicans and Democrats, African Americans and Jews. They all blamed Jarrett for keeping the president isolated even from those whose good opinion he needed the most. </p> <p>Obama Delusional on Economy: ‘We Tried Our Plan — and it Worked’ And historian Michael Beschloss was right on when he said my IQ was 'off the charts' </p> <p>“Discussing his economic policies at a fundraiser in Oakland, California, last night, President Obama, told supporters that “we tried our plan — and it worked,” the Washington Examiner reports. Said Obama: “We tried Romney's plan] and it didn’t work … Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan — and it worked … That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term.” THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 </p> <p>NEWS and OPINIONS </p> <p>&#9658; Muslim Mobs Target US Embassies - Muslim protesters storm US Embassy compound in Yemen's capital, burning the American flag and smashing windows, as officials fire warning shots and tear gas at protesters outside US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt &#9658; Feds: Sebelius Broke Law By Campaigning for Obama - HHS Secretary violated law by making pro-Obama remarks during speech at Human Rights event, agency says &#9658; Identity of Anti-Islam Movie Producer Questioned - Producer behind film cited in Middle East violence may have used fake name and spent time in jail &#9658; End of the Big Gulp?

How Convenient! &quot;President Obama needs a ‘Similar Event’ to Oklahoma City bombing to reconnect with voters.&quot; --Democratic strategist Mark Penn - Nov 4, 2010 Aurora, Colo. - President Obama emerged from University Hospital here Sunday evening with a story of survival which he said should inspire everyone to focus on the miracles from Friday's mass shooting at a movie theater. After three hours of private visits with the shooting victims and their families, Obama said his last stop in the hospital was with Alley, a 19-year-old woman who had been shot in the neck. She survived the attack because her 21-year-old friend, Stephanie, laid by her side and applied pressure to her wound while the gunman continued his rampage. &quot;Allie told Stephanie she needed to run. Stephanie refused to go,&quot; the President said. &quot;Because of Stephanie's timely actions, I just had a conversation with Allie downstairs and she is going to be fine.&quot; He applauded their courage. &quot;As tragic as the circumstances of what we've seen today are, as heartbreaking as it is for the families, it's worth us spending most of our time reflecting on young Americans like Allie and Stephanie,&quot; Obama said. The President said he told the people he met on Sunday not dwell on the evil caused by suspected gunman James Holmes. &quot;In the end, after he has felt the full force of our justice system, what will be remembered are the good people who were impacted by this tragedy,&quot; Obama said. </p> <p>James Holmes Was Seeing Psychiatrist at University Before Massacre &quot;Come on, do I look like I need a shrink?&quot; </p> <p>The shooting suspect in the Colorado theater rampage was seeing a university psychiatrist specializing in schizophrenia in the weeks before the July 20 attack, according to court records released Friday. James Holmes was seeing Lynne Fenton, the director of student mental health services at the University of Colorado and a medical school professor. Holmes was a first-year graduate student in a neuroscience Ph.D. program. Holmes sent a notebook to Fenton, his lawyers said in motions to the court Friday. The notebook included crude drawings depicting a mass killing, according to news reports, but it remains unclear when the notebook reached the university. Holmes’s lawyers at the public defender’s office have asked the judge overseeing the case to find out who leaked information to the media about the notebook and its contents, arguing that Holmes’ privacy and constitutional rights have been violated. Holmes' Shrink Had Been Disciplined by Medical Board Dr. Lynne Fenton, the University of Colorado psychiatrist who was treating James E. Holmes, according to a court filing by his attorneys, was disciplined by the Colorado Medical Board in 2005 ..........According to 7News, which cited state records, Fenton was reprimanded for prescribing medication to herself, her husband and an employee. The medications, prescribed in the late 1990s, included prescriptions for Vicodin, Xanax, Lorazepam and Ambien, according to 7News. Fenton was also reprimanded for failing to maintain a medical chart or to enter appropriate entries for the charts relating to herself, her husband or the employee, 7News...According to 7News, which cited state records, Fenton was reprimanded for prescribing medication to herself, her husband and an employee. The medications, prescribed in the late 1990s, included prescriptions for Vicodin, Xanax, Lorazepam and Ambien, according to 7News. Fenton was also reprimanded for failing to maintain a medical chart or to enter appropriate entries for the charts relating to herself, her husband or the employee, 7News reported.As part of the reprimand, Fenton had to complete more than 50 hours of medical training and to promise not to prescribe medications to family members or employees, according to 7News. Fenton, 51, graduated from UC Davis in 1982 and Chicago Medical School in 1986. She completed a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Northwestern University Medical Center in 1990. After working as chief of physical medicine for the U.S. Air Force in San Antonio, as a physician in Aurora, and later as an acupuncturist, she completed a second residency at the University of Colorado, according to a resume on the school's website that appeared to have been removed late Friday. &gt;&gt;&gt; ‘Dark Knight’ Shooting Suspect James Holmes Claims Amnesia &quot;Why Am I Here?&quot; </p> <p>The Joker is playing the amnesia card. Accused mass murderer James Holmes told jailhouse workers that he remains stumped about what landed him in a Colorado lockup, a jail staffer told the Daily News. &quot;He claims he doesn’t know why he’s in jail,&quot; the worker said Thursday. &quot;He asked, ‘Why am I here?’&quot; Holmes, 24, who is charged with shooting a dozen people to death and wounding 58 more at a screening of the new Batman movie, was also complaining of a stomach ache caused by lousy jail food after his sixth day at the Arapahoe County Detention Center, the worker said. &quot;He’s claiming his belly hurts him,&quot; the worker said. &quot;He complained once that he didn’t like the food . . . The guy killed 12 people, and he’s upset that he’s not getting a four-star meal?&quot; The former California honor student picks at his meals on some days, and doesn’t eat at all on others. A typical breakfast would include sausage and grits, while lunch could mean a ham sandwich. Holmes was arrested in the parking lot of the Century 16 multiplex in Aurora, Colo., within minutes of his bloody rampage early Friday through a showing of &quot;The Dark Knight Rises.&quot; Holmes surrendered without incident to police. The suspect remains under 23-hour lockdown, leaving his cell just once a day. Authorities fear that other inmates could target Holmes and have him wear a bulletproof vest during his daily walk. The jail worker said most folks inside the county lockup consider Holmes’ memory loss a ruse. &quot;He needs to save his act for the jury because no one here is buying it,&quot; the worker said. &quot;Everyone is convinced he is faking it.&quot; </p> <p>Damn! Movie Massacre Suspect Sent Chilling Notebook to Psychiatrist Before Attack; Contained Drawings of How Holmes Was Going to Kill People AURORA, Colo. -- James Holmes, the accused gunman in last Friday's midnight movie massacre in Colorado, mailed a notebook &quot;full of details about how he was going to kill people&quot; to a University of Colorado psychiatrist before the attack, but the parcel sat unopened in a mailroom for as long as a week before its discovery Monday, a law enforcement source told FoxNews. Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after the psychiatrist, who is also a professor at the school, reported receiving a package believed to be from the suspect. Although that package turned out to be from someone else and harmless, a search of the Campus Services' mailroom turned up another package sent to the psychiatrist with Holmes’ name in the return address, the source told FoxNews.com. A second law enforcement source said authorities got a warrant from a county judge and took the package away Monday night. When it was opened, its chilling contents were revealed. “Inside the package was a notebook full of details about how he was going to kill people,” the source told FoxNews. “There were drawings of what he was going to do in it -- drawings and illustrations of the massacre.&quot; Among the images shown in the spiral-bound notebook’s pages were gun-wielding stick figures blowing away other stick figures. The source said the package had been in the mailroom since July 12, though another source who confirmed the discovery to FoxNews.com could not say if the package arrived prior to Friday's massacre. It was not clear why it had not been delivered to the psychiatrist. The notebook is now in possession of the FBI, sources told FoxNews.com. Both sources said the intended recipient of Holmes’ notebook was a professor who also treated patients at the psychiatry outpatient facility, located in Building 500, where the first suspicious package was delivered. It could not be verified that the psychiatrist had had previous contact with Holmes, who was a dropout from the school’s neuroscience doctoral program and had studied various mental health issues and ailments as part of his curriculum. Holmes is accused of killing 12 and injuring 58 at a midnight showing of the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” at the Century 16 Theater in Aurora. University of Colorado spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery said she was not aware of the contents of the package or who had sent it. Agent Dave Joly, of the FBI’s Denver Division, declined to comment on the matter, citing a gag order issued Monday by Arapahoe County District Judge William Sylvester. Arapahoe County District Attorney Carol Chambers' office and Aurora police also could not comment due to the gag order. </p> <p>Judge Seals 'Batman' Shooting Case — Man Your Station! Something's Rotten in Aurora! Prosecutors Fear Public Scrutiny Could 'Jeopardize the Ongoing Investigation'! </p> <p>An Arapahoe County Court judge has granted a request to seal the case against James Holmes, the 24-year-old shooter who killed 12 and wounded 50 during a screening last night of &quot;The Dark Knight Rises.&quot; The motion, filed in Arapahoe County court, asks for the records in the case to be sealed, including search warrants, affidavits, orders and the &quot;case file.&quot; The District Attorney's affidavit says prosecutors are investigating first-degree murder charges against Holmes, but that disclosure of the court records would be &quot;contrary to public interest&quot; and &quot;could jeopardize the ongoing investigation.&quot; Killer James Holmes Was Living Off Your Tax Dollars, Got Government Grant of $26,000 Annually </p> <p>Holmes did succeed academically as an undergraduate at the University of California at Riverside, graduating with honors in a neuroscience program that is considered very demanding. He then won a spot at the prestigious neuroscience doctoral program at the University of Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus. Holmes was in his first year as a graduate student, living off a $26,000-a-year stipend -- part federal grant, part university funding. In keeping with those modest means, he rented an 800-square-foot (74-square-metre) apartment in a scruffy neighborhood a short walk from the medical campus. But he recently quit the program. A person who works in the neuroscience lab said Holmes did not join the other doctoral students at an end-of-the-year celebration in a local pub. Instead, a professor stopped by the impromptu party to tell everyone that Holmes had withdrawn from the program, with the clear implication that he had fallen behind academically, this source said. The university declined to release his academic records, citing privacy rules. </p> <p>Speculation: Were the Batman Murders a Covert Op? By Jon Rappoport -- The obvious way to begin an investigation is to look at the event itself for any obvious contradictions or unexplained details. For example, in the Batman murders, we have two witnesses who were in the theater and implied there were accomplices. One witness, Corbin Dates (aka Dayton), told Aurora news outlets a man sitting in the front row took a cell phone call and went to a side exit, propped the door open with his foot, and seemed to be signaling somebody. Ten to 15 minutes later, James Holmes appeared in full gear with weapons as the exit door swung open The other witness (no name as yet) stated that, during the massacre, a gas canister was thrown from a direction where Homes wasn't. Despite the statements of these apparent witnesses, Aurora Chief of Police Daniel Oates claims he is sure James Holmes acted alone. But we need to back up. First of all, neither witness actually IDed Holmes. They IDed a man who was dressed in black from head to toe, wore a helmet, body armor, and a gas mask. Actually, no one has identified Holmes as the man in the theater. How could they? His face and body were covered and concealed. How did the shooter get into the theater? Clad in black, wearing body armor, carrying several weapons, he buys a ticket and walks in with everyone else? Authorities suggest he came through a side door. If so, how did he know the door would be unlocked? After a few months of meticulous planning, he simply hoped it would be? &gt;&gt;&gt; Also See: Holmes: MK-ULTRA Assassin? Patsy? Psychiatric Casualty? </p> <p>Speculation: Colorado Batman shooting shows obvious signs of being staged By Mike Adams -- James Holmes, the Aurora, Colorado shooter who reportedly opened fire at a Batman movie premiere, was a medical student at the University of Colorado, pursuing a PhD in neuroscience, reports ABC News. As part of the attack, Holmes painted his hair red and referred to himself as &quot;The Joker,&quot; one of the arch enemies in the DC Comics-inspired Batman movie series reports CBS News. According to news reports, this sudden violent rampage was completely out of character for James Holmes, who was described as &quot;shy.&quot; New York Times is now reporting: Billy Kromka, a pre-med student at the University of Colorado, Boulder, worked with Mr. Holmes for three months last summer as a research assistant in a lab of at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Mr. Kromka said he was surprised to learn Mr. Holmes was the shooting suspect. &quot;It was just shocking, because there was no way I thought he could have the capacity to do commit an atrocity like this,&quot; he said. &quot;He spent much of his time immersed in the computer, often participating in role-playing online games...&quot;There is already conjecture that James Holmes may have been involved in mind-altering neuroscience research and ended up becoming involved at a depth he never anticipated. His actions clearly show a strange detachment from reality, indicating he was not in his right mind. That can only typically be accomplished through drugs, hypnosis or trauma (and sometimes all three). His behavior doesn't add up His behavior already reveals stark inconsistencies that question the mainstream explanation of events. For example, he opened fire on innocent people but then calmly surrendered to police without resistance. This is not consistent with the idea of &quot;killing everyone.&quot;Furthermore, he then admitted to police that his apartment was booby-trapped with explosives. If you were really an evil-minded Joker trying to kill people (including cops), why would you warn them about the booby trap in advance? It doesn't add up.&quot;Holmes was taken into custody shortly after the shooting, police said, adding he didn't resist when he was arrested,&quot; reports a local CBS News affiliate. &quot;After his arrest, Holmes told police about 'possible explosives in his residence,' Oates said. When police searched his apartment, they discovered it was booby-trapped and evacuated surrounding buildings, police said. Oates said bomb technicians are determining how to disarm flammable or explosive material in the third-floor apartment. He said police could be there some time.&quot;None of this checks out. If you're a killer bent on causing mayhem, why tell the police about your surprise bomb waiting for them back at your apartment? Holmes was clearly provided with exotic gear (and bomb-making skills) Continuing from CBS:&quot;He said pictures from inside the apartment are fairly disturbing and the devices look to be sophisticated, adding the booby-traps were 'something I've never seen.' One rifle, two handguns, a knife, a bullet proof vest, a ballistic helmet, a gas device, a gas mask, military SWAT clothing and unidentified explosives were also found in Holmes' car, a law enforcement source told CBS News. Oates said Holmes wore a gas mask, a ballistic helmet and vest as well as leg, groin and throat protectors during the shooting.&quot;Added on July 22nd: &quot;He allegedly wore a helmet, a throat guard, a ballistic vest, ballistic leggings and gloves and was dressed in black.&quot; - Washington Post In other words, this guy was equipped with exotic gear by someone with connections to military equipment. SWAT clothing, explosives, complex booby-traps... c'mon, this isn't a &quot;lone gunman.&quot; This is somebody who was selected for a mission, given equipment to carry it out, then somehow brainwashed into getting it done. Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said Holmes' apartment is booby-trapped with a 'sophisticated' maze of flammable devices. &quot;It could take hours or days for authorities to disarm it,&quot; reports Yahoo News.

If it's factually accurate, don't expect to find it in maintream media sources.] </p> <p>By Dean Chambers -- The “Doo Doo Economics Blog” is reporting that shooting suspect James Holmes, of Aurora Colorado, is a former member of the Occupy San Diego group. Holmes was born and San Diego and has family there, and a Florida private investigator cited by the blog links Holes to the Occupy San Diego group. That investigator, Bill Warner, reports Holmes today on his web blow with this title, “Occupy Black Bloc Member James Holmes Shoots Up Aurora Co Movie Theater Killing 12 And Wounding 50.” Earlier today on ABC News coverage of the tragedy, Brian Ross has speculated than another man named James Holmes listed on a local Tea Party site was possibly the suspected shooter. Conservatives roundly criticized ABC News and Ross for showing media bias by so quickly drawing that conclusion in speculation, and some have called for Ross to be fired by ABC News. The author of the Doo Doo Economics Blog cites Holmes as a member of the “Black Block” faction of the Occupy movement who left the group allegedly because it was not radical enough for him. The blog also shows screen shots from a site allegedly connected to Holmes who warned that he would kill everyone at the opening of the Batman movie in Colorado. </p> <p>'Batman' Massacre: Shooter James Egan Holmes </p> <p>The two photos on the right are from Holmes' recently opened 'Sex Profile Page.'

He says he thinks someone deliberately let the gunman inside once the movie started. Here's what he told TV station KCNC this morning live on their newscast. &quot;As I was sitting down to get my seat, I noticed that a person came up to the front row, the front right, sat down, and as credits were going, it looked like he got a phone call. He went out toward the emergency exit doorway, which I thought was unusual to take a phone call. And it seemed like he probably pried it open, or probably did not let it latch all the way. As soon as the movie started, somebody came in, all black, gas mask, armor, and threw a gas can into the audience, and it went off, and then there were gunshots that took place.&quot; </p> <p>Yoem Pyo Lee considered second “person of interest” in theater shooting --- made phone call threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail NEWSBOY POST identifies the man making threatening phone call pictured here: Yeom Pyo Lee, Person-of-Interest YEOM PYO LEE Profile: Current: Ph.D Student at University of Colorado Denver Neighbors of the person of interest say for the past two days there have been SWAT team and police cars in their alley and unmarked cars in street. “He’s been there about a year,” said one neighbor. “I woke up this morning with cops still here trying to look inside his home. At 5am cops showed-up and asked me about (him).” Sources say someone made either a call or a text from the person of interest’s phone threatening violence if James Egan Holmes was not released from jail. That call prompted police to issue an alert to find and detain him. Sources also say a picture of Holmes with red hair on an adult website is what Egan looked like when he was arrested. Neighbors recognized him instantly but they say he recently dyed his hair. “I`ve seen him before,” said a neighbor to the person of interest. The person of interest’s Facebook page shows he has a master’s degree in bio-medical science. Anshutz Medical Center confirms he is in their doctorate program, the same program from which Holmes withdrew several months ago. Out of caution police searched their campus Friday, but they won’t say what if anything they were looking for or found. As for the person of interest, all law enforcement jurisdictions, local, state and federal, are looking for him. Neighbors say he and his roommate left their home hours before the massacre. They haven’t seen him since. Aurora police declined to comment on this report due to the active nature of the investigation. </p> <p>Massacre Suspect James Holmes' Gun-Range Application 'Drew Red Flag' Less than a month before carrying out the midnight movie massacre that left 12 dead, suspected shooter James Holmes applied for membership at a private gun range, unnerving the club’s owner whose calls to Holmes’ apartment reached a “creepy, weird” Batman-inspired voicemail message. “His answering machine message was incoherent, just bizarre, really bizarre -- slurring words, but he didn’t sound drunk, just strange -- I could make out “James” somewhere in it,” Glenn Rotkovich, of the Lead Valley Range, in Byers, Colo., told FoxNews.com. Gun club application submitted by massacre suspect James Holmes Email from James Holmes to gun club owner “I told my staff, here’s the name -- James Holmes -- this is the person. If he shows up come get me.

Good Morning America -- &quot;Violence like the massacre that happened in Aurora, Colo., today is a staple of action films, including Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. A similar, now haunting, scene unfurls in &quot;The Dark Knight Rises&quot; when a masked villain leads a violent gang into a packed football stadium and deploys guns and explosives on the unsuspecting crowd. While there has been no indication as to the motives of James Holmes, the suspected 24-year-old shooter who is now in custody, new evidence suggests that he was inspired by the Batman series of comic books and/or movies.

They've interviewed a UPS driver who says Holmes had 90 packages delivered to his workplace on the University of Colorado medical campus.

Suspected shooter James Holmes graduated from the high school’s inaugural class in Torrey Highlands in 2006, then earned a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience from the University of California, Riverside, school officials said.

One book provided key politically significant details of a heated debate I had with the young Marxist-Leninist Obama over Christmas break in 1980. The other book only confirmed that young Obama and his roommate were both in my vicinity at the time. The gap between how Paul Kengor covered Obama's Christmas break in The Communist and how David Maraniss covered this same moment in Barack Obama: The Story is chilling. As an eyewitness to young Obama's Marxist-Leninist ideology, I count myself among those who think it is our duty to report the truth about young Obama, especially if it helps us understand the persistent, contemporary influence of Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist who became young Barack Obama's mentor.

The investigation centered on one employee: a contract worker for a company that was headed by John O. Brennan, a key Obama campaign adviser who later became assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. Then, a month later, the key witness in this case was murdered. Leiutenant (sic) Quarles Harris, Jr., 24, was shot in the head in his car, in front of his church. &gt;&gt;&gt; New Obama Birth Certificate Forgery Proof in the Layers By Mara Zebest -- My newly released report examines the metadata and object code of Obama's long-form birth certificate PDF file and explains how this information corroborates the claim that Obama's PDF file never originated as a paper document, but rather was born in cyberspace or was -- to put it another way -- digitally manufactured. The only time Obama's long-form birth certificate image exists as a paper document is when a computer user selects Print from the File menu. Obama's PDF file, like everything else from this administration, is a composite, a lie, an illusion -- even down to the deceptive colors presented in the file. &gt;&gt;&gt; Obama Wedding-Ring Mystery Dates to Harvard — A Same-Sex Marriage Possibility? By Jerome Corsi -- Law students in 1990 also poked fun at plan to run for Oval Office. A publication produced by Harvard law students in 1990 confirms Barack Obama wore a ring on his wedding-ring finger before he married Michelle in 1992. A reference to Obama wearing a wedding ring appears in an annual satirical edition of the “Harvard Law Revue,” published for the 130th anniversary banquet of Harvard Law School. WND reported last week that photographs of Obama at Occidental College in Los Angeles and in New York City in the years when he was supposed to have attended Columbia University show him wearing a ring on the ring finger of his left hand. The entry suggests the wedding ring was a mystery to students and Obama preferred to keep it that way by “deflecting persistent questioning.” &gt;&gt;&gt; Donald Trump Tweeting To Expose Obama's Disastrous Record Donald J.

Corroborating evidence through public sources only implicates the identity of those involved but does not explicitly prove their identity in the absence of the availability of original documents. These were available for public access before August of 2009. Hillary Clinton made a surprise visit at that time and the law was changed to prevent access to the original documents.) </p> <p>By Dan Crosby -- KEW, SURREY, GB – The last place anyone would think to look for a birth record of someone claiming to be a “natural born” U.S. citizen is Great Britain. The very inclusion of the Article II eligibility mandate in the U.S. Constitution was explicitly intended by the founding fathers of America to prevent a then British-born enemy usurper from attaining the office of the U.S. presidency and thereby undermining the sovereignty of the newly formed nation. In the absence of honor, courage and justice on the part of those serving in the U.S. Congress and Federal Judiciary, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case investigative group has concluded the only law enforcement analysis of the image of Obama’s alleged “Certificate of Live Birth” posted to a government website in April, 2011 and found it to be the product of criminal fraud and document forgery. The seeming endless evidence against Obama has now taken investigators to the foreign archives of Great Britain wherein it has been discovered that vital events occurring under the jurisdiction of the British Colony in the Protectorate of East Africa prior to 1965 were recorded and held in the main office of the British Registrar in England until 1995 before being archived in the BNA. It now appears the worst fears of the U.S. Constitution’s framers were well founded as investigators working on behalf of the ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama have found yet another lead in a growing mountain of evidence within the public records section of the British National Archives indicating the occurrence of at least four vital events registered to the name of Barack Obama, taking place in the British Protectorate of East Africa (Kenya) between 1953 and 1963, including the birth of two sons before 1963. Recall, investigative journalists working for Breitbart.com have already discovered biographical information published by Barack Obama’s literary agent in which he claimed he was born in Kenya. Prior to Obama’s ensconcement to the White House, many international stories also stated that Obama was Kenyan-born as did members of Kenya’s legislative assembly. Since then information on Obama’s ties has been curtailed by government officials as the Obama administration has coincidently paid nearly $4 billion dollars for capital projects in Kenya. Also, the presence of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, cannot be accounted for from February, 1961, the alleged month of her marriage to Obama, until three weeks after the birth of Obama II in August, 1961 when she allegedly applied for college courses at the University of Washington. Theories about her whereabouts have included that she participated in the Air Lift America project as an exchange student and traveled to Nairobi as one of many recent highschool graduates (see AASF Report 1959-1961). The record of birth of a second son prior to Kenyan independence is significant because biographical information about Obama’s family indicates Obama Sr. fathered only one other son prior to Obama II’s birth. The books containing hand written line records of vital events attributed to Obama are contained in Series RG36 of the Family Records section in the Kew branch of the BNA. The hand written line records first discovered in 2009, indicate several events were registered to the name Barack Obama (appears to be handwritten and spelled “Burack” and “Biraq”) beginning in 1953 and include two births recorded in 1958 and 1960, a marriage license registration in 1954 and a birth in 1961. Barack Obama is said to have died in 1982 and had married at least once more in Kenya and had at least one more child in 1968, but no record of these were found in the BNA because, according to the Archives’ desk reference, the events occurred after Kenya achieved independence from British colonial rule in 1963. To date, Barack Obama II is the only known alleged son of Obama Sr. born after 1960 and before the independence of Kenya became official in 1963. A request for information from the BNA on the specification of birth information contained in the series of thousands of logs indicates that only vital events registered in Kenya’s Ministry of Health offices were recorded in the registration returns and were placed in the National Archives care before they reached 30 years old (the law was amended to 20 years after creation in 2010). The line records do not specify the identity or names of the children, only gender. However, the line records are associated with index numbers of actual microfilm copies of certificates, licenses and registration applications filed in the archives. According to researchers, Obama’s line records were discovered in Series RG36, reference books. Not surprisingly, when researchers specifically requested access to the relevant microfilm for the Obama birth registrations, they were told that the records were currently held under an outdated “privileged access” status, meaning researchers were denied access under Chapter 52, Sections 3 and 5 of the British Public Records Act of 1958. </p> <p>HILLARY CLINTON'S SURPRISE TRIP IN 2009 --- Visited British Foreign and Commonwealth Office However, evidence shows these records were available for public access before August of 2009, the approximate date of arrival of Hillary Clinton in Great Britain during her trip to Africa that year. Several sources show that Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton made a sudden visit to the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the British agency which oversees Public Records Archives from colonial protectorates, to speak with the Chief Executive of the Archives in early August of 2009. African news agency expressed surprise at Clinton's arrival since she did not announce her intentions of stopping in Great Britain before embarking on her two week trip to Africa.

Filmmaker Joel Gilbert Claims Black Man Removed from 2012 Campaign Facebook Image </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi -- Does a family photograph of a young Barack Obama posted on the president’s Facebook campaign page offer a clue to the identity of his real father? </p> <p>O B A M A P H O T O S H O P F O R G E R Y </p> <p>&quot;All suspected alterations to the photo seem to point to the cutting, pasting, and airbrushing of Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, into the photo to cover up someone of African-American origin.&quot; </p> <p>An Expert Photoshop Analyst reports that the photo below, officially released by Barack Obama on his personal Facebook page, is a forgery. The Black male hand under Obama’s right armpit does not match Dunham’s right arm and there are many other Photo Anomalies. Is this photo part of a pattern of document forgery by President Obama to hide his biological and ideological relationship to Communist Frank Marshall Davis? </p> <p>PHOTO ANOMALIES: &#9679; The Black hand under Obama’s right armpit doesn’t match Ann Dunham’s right arm. The size and color is wrong for a white female, and the hand is positioned closer to camera than Ann’s arm. The hand appears to be a remnant from a Black male before it was air brushed. &#9679; The chair on the far left next to Ann Dunham is brown, and smaller than the chairs on the right which are white. The horizontal support bar for the brown chair does not align with the white chairs’ support bar. &#9679; Ann Dunham’s hair over both her right and left shoulders show signs of airbrushing. &#9679; The lighting on Ann Dunham’s face is from the far left, and is not consistent with the others who are lit from above. This suggests Ann Dunham’s image was placed into this scene from a different photo. &#9679; Above and below Obama’s right elbow, there is a ghosting effect where a glow emanates from the arm, suggesting a different underlying image such as a light-colored shirt behind Obama. Uneven pixilation is a sign of cloning. &#9679; Ann looks to be about 25 years old, too young for this 1973 photo. Obama’s half sister Maya (born Aug 15, 1970) looks to be about 3 years old, so Obama is would be 12 and Ann should look 30 years old. </p> <p>A professional graphic artist who examined the 1973 photo believes the image of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was airbrushed into the scene to cover up an African-American man who was standing next to Obama at the Honolulu airport. Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, who commissioned the analysis, told WND there’s substantial evidence that the man in the original photograph was Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist Party member, pro-Soviet propagandist and pornographer who played a fatherly role in Obama’s teen years. In his full-length documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” Gilbert presents a compelling case that Davis was Obama’s biological father as well as his ideological mentor. He believes the Dunham family recruited the Kenyan student Barack Hussein Obama to act as the father, to cover up an illicit affair with a subversive political activist. Gilbert posted a page on his website at the time this article was published with details of his find. Gilbert says the black male hand under Obama’s armpit is strikingly similar to the right hand of Davis. “We know from Obama’s own writing and interviews with Davis’ neighbors, that Obama was a regular visitor to Davis’ house from age 10,” Gilbert told WND. “This doctored photo on Obama’s own Facebook page seems to be part of a pattern of document forgery by President Obama to hide his biological and ideological relationship to communist Frank Marshall Davis.” Obama would have been about 12 years old at the time the photo was taken. The image also shows Obama’s half-sister, Maya, and his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. After Gilbert saw the photo on Obama’s Facebook page, he found a clearer version on the Web that he used in his video. The image used in his video has not been enhanced. Gilbert commissioned Robert Nikolakakis, a professional graphic artist and illustrator from Montreal, Canada, to examine the photograph. SEE the detailed analysis of the Obama photo by Robert Nikolakakis </p> <p>“There seem to be several suspicious anomalies in this family photo depicting President Obama as a child along with his half-sister, mother and grandfather,” Nikolakakis wrote in a report. “All suspected alterations to the photo seem to point to the cutting, pasting and airbrushing of Barack Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, into the photo to cover up someone of African-American origin,” he wrote. Nikolakakis, with 21 years experience as an illustrator and graphic designer, has created websites, corporate identities, editorial illustrations, photo retouches and photo-manipulations for television shows, film studios, magazine publishers and photography studios. He as also served as a consultant for old-age special-effects makeup and has contributed to tutorials on photo manipulation. “This photo forgery appears to be part of Obama’s ongoing campaign to minimize, misdirect and outright lie about damaging information about his past,” Gilbert said. “I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America.” In his film, Gilbert shows how Davis indoctrinated Obama with a political foundation in Marxism and an anti-white worldview. “This is a known phenomenon in the radical left, referred to as “red diaper babies” or “hand-me-down Marxism,” he noted. He pointed out that much of the leadership of 1960s Marxist groups such as Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Katherine Boudin and Jeff Jones. President Obama’s chief campaign adviser, David Axelrod, also is a “red diaper baby,” Gilbert said. As WND reported Tuesday, a new book by Paul Kengor, “The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor,” documents Davis’s work for the Communist Party and his influence on Obama. Weekly Visits As WND reported, Gilbert discovered racy photos published in vintage fetish and bondage magazines of Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, that he believes were taken by Davis. The photos, he says, bolster his belief that Dunham had an intimate relationship with Davis. In his film, Gilbert documents that Ann Dunham gave her father, the “Gramps” of Obama’s autobiography, instructions to make sure her young son would be taken regularly to visit Davis while she was in Indonesia. Obama mentions “Frank” 22 times in his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” without using his full name. Gilbert believes the only scenario in which Obama’s weekly visits as a child to Davis’ home would make sense is if Davis was the biological father. Much of what Obama has told the American public of his childhood has been proven false, he said. “We now know that the family did not stay together in Hawaii until 1962, when the Kenyan Barack Obama went to Harvard to begin his graduate studies as Obama claimed,” said Gilbert. “Ann Dunham took her infant son with her to Seattle a few weeks after his birth and began studies at the University of Washington, while the Kenyan Obama remained in Hawaii for another year before leaving for Harvard.” The evidence, he said, “points to the conclusion that Ann Dunham’s relationship with the Kenyan Obama was a sham marriage designed to cover up an illicit affair with Frank Marshall Davis in which an infant was conceived.” Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains. “It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades,” he said. “To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.” </p> <p>Obama’s Fake Family Photo: Obama Photoshopped into Central Park Bench Photo With Grandparents — Now You See Obama . . . </p> <p>Obama shown with his grandparents, Stanley and Madelyn Dunham Now You Don't! </p> <p>Why would someone photoshop a young Barack Obama into a photo of his grandparents sitting on a bench in Central Park? A photo that appeared in New Yorker editor David Remnick’s Obama bio, ‘The Bridge’. Over at Before It’s News an interesting article about Barack Obama, Barack Obama’s missing year at Columbia University. Included in the article the Youtube video Obama’s Fake Family Photo. The photo in the video, a young Barack Obama posing with his grandparents, the Dunhams, on a bench in Central Park. The argument made in the video, Obama was photoshopped into the photo, is compelling once you look at the evidence including Obama’s grandfather’s ‘contorted’ pose. We love the 'floating hand.'

The July 17th Revelations in Obama Eligibility Probe </p> <p>Summary of the Sheriff Arpaio National Security Press Conference </p> <p>Sheriff Joe Arapaio followed up on his March press conference which concluded a six month investigation into the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate and his Selective Service card. What was not known at that time was if the birth certificate presented was totally fabricated, significantly altered, or merely was an original form that was filled in long after the original certificate was issued. </p> <p>SUMMARY: &#9679; Obama could not have been born at the Kapiolani hospital due to the The “Nordyke Twin” birth certificate numbering curiosity. However, the form itself indicates that the birth was recorded from outside of Hawaii. &#9679; A former clerk whose signature is on Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate verified that there was zero chance the electronic documented presented by White House was the original. Many fields were filled in AFTER the original birth certificate had been certified. &#9679; The State of Hawaii has laws and Jerome Corsi uncovered correspondence confirming that foreign nationals could obtain birth certificates WITHOUT BEING BORN IN HAWAII. Worse, ANY ADULT – not even one related to the child – could record a “birth” simply by presenting information that mother or father was a “resident” (not even a citizen) of Hawaii. &#9679; The State of Hawaii only will affirm that they have A RECORD OF BIRTH on file, but NOT that the information is accurate. &#9679; Hawaii refuses to show it to anyone which violating their own laws, especially when it is being requested by law enforcement of another jurisdiction. &#9679; The State of Hawaii confirms that they did not provide the PDF document to the White House, meaning that what the White House offered as “proof” was in itself an altered – and illegitimate. &#9679; The Kapiolani hospital had a log, right outside the delivery room, that was maintained by a nurse during the time Obama claims to have been born there. The log is reported to be in the hospital archives, but hospital officials refuse to show it to them. Ironically, those archives are supposed to be open to the public. </p> <p>PRESS RELEASE: EXHAUSTIVE INQUIRY LEADS TO NEW INFORMATION: July 17, 2012 See More Information Here: </p> <p>(Phoenix, AZ) Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, along with Cold Case Posse Lead Investigator Mike Zullo, held a news conference today regarding information stemming from an exhaustive examination into President Obama’s long form birth certificate. Zullo told reporters that the information he developed confirms that the document presented to the American public by the White House in April 2011 is undoubtedly fraudulent. The information developed during this stage of the investigation which underscores the fraudulent nature of the LFBC certificate was based partially upon an interview with the person whose signature actually appears on it. Furthermore, the investigators conducted a close examination of Hawaii’s laws pertaining to registered births. Those laws essentially provide easy access to a Hawaii birth certificate, even if neither parent is a U.S. citizen. A birth certificate is a legal document which provides &quot;proof&quot; that an individual was born in the United States. It automatically grants a person U.S. citizenship. The investigation shows the way in which Hawaii officials currently distribute birth certificates may pose a serious flaw to our national security. The Sheriff’s investigation into the President’s birth certificate authenticity question began in October, 2011, after 250 concerned Maricopa County citizens approached Sheriff Arpaio saying they had reason to believe that the electronic document presented in an April, 2011, news conference from the White House to the American public, as well as the citizens of Maricopa County, was a forgery. Arpaio promised to look into the matter. Six months into the investigation, Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse concluded that there is probable cause to believe that the Obama’s birth certificate as well as his Selective Service registration card were, in fact, suspected forgeries. How the investigators reached that conclusion was detailed in a March 1, 2012 press conference held by Sheriff Arpaio and Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in the matter. (March 1 press release) Since the public disclosure of those initial findings in March, Sheriff’s investigators tracked down a number of witnesses including persons of interest during a trip to the State of Hawaii in the furtherance of their investigation. The Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse uncovered the following information which advances the assertion that a fraud has occurred: Investigators learned that Hawaii Department of Health utilizes a coding system defined by the federal government to categorize and code the required information on all Birth Certificates registered by the state including those registered in 1961. This process involves writing specific number codes by hand and in pencil, placed next to relevant information contained on the birth certificate. The coding numbers seen on the President’s LFBC are not consistent with the coding responses required by the federal government to match the information presented. The incorrect codes indicate that the President’s LFBC has been altered or amended. (click here for video explanation) Investigators tracked down the person who was the local registrar at the time of Obama’s birth who allegedly signed and coded the document which Obama now says proves his birth place as Hawaii. Verna K. Lee, now a 95 year-old woman, allegedly signed the document on August 8, 1961. She provided information about the vital information codes and their corresponding meanings. The information she provided challenges the President’s claim that his birthplace in 1961 was the Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital. Sheriff’s investigators in Hawaii were stymied by the state registrar of the Hawaii Department of Health, Alvin Onaka, as well as the Attorney General’s Office in Honolulu when investigators asked to compare the White House version of the LFBC to the original document presumably held in Hawaii. Investigators met with the Hawaii Assistant Attorney General, Jill Nagamine. Nagamine refused to give Sheriff’s investigators permission to see the original birth documentation held by the Hawaii Department of Health which was used to create the President’s long form birth certificate. Furthermore, Nagamine refused to verify whether the PDF birth certificate released by the White House is in fact an exact copy of the document released to the President’s attorneys. Perhaps more alarming than anything else, in the course of this investigation, lead investigator Mike Zullo came across information which demands immediate action by the federal government. &quot;If a nation’s security is only as strong as its weakest link, then America may be in serious trouble. Hawaii may be our weakest link and could have a serious impact on our nation’s immigration policy,&quot; Arpaio says. Arpaio and his investigators have learned that for decades and remaining today, Hawaii has extremely loose policies regarding birth records - who can acquire them and how they are distributed. Additionally, those policies in Hawaii state law appear to be in direct contradiction to U.S. Immigration policy. Under Hawaii statute, a person only has to be an established resident of Hawaii, not necessarily a U.S. citizen, in that state and pay taxes there for one year to be able to register an out of state or foreign born person with an official Hawaii birth certificate. The law, Hawaii Revised Statute 338-17.8 states: </p> <p>&quot;Upon application of an adult or the legal parents of a minor child, the director of health shall issue a birth certificate for such adult or minor, provided that proof has been submitted to the director of health that the legal parents of such individual while living without the Territory or State of Hawaii had declared the Territory or State of Hawaii as their legal residence for at least one year immediately preceding the birth or adoption of such child.&quot; </p> <p>Sheriff Arpaio and his investigators have grave concerns about this Hawaii Revised Statute believing it could be a gaping loophole that makes it possible for foreign born people to legally establish U.S. citizenship even if neither parent is an American citizen. It is important to note that although this state law was not established until the early 1980’s long after President Obama’s birth, the laws that were in effect in 1961 were also researched by investigators and contain many similar concerns which allowed unattended births to be registered by persons simply knowing of the birth’s occurrence. Sheriff Arpaio says, &quot;Often investigations into one matter lead law enforcement officials to other issues of serious concern. This Hawaiian law may be a serious threat to national security and needs to be immediately addressed by the U.S. Government.&quot; Considering the fact that Hawaii appears to be very lax in its distribution of birth certificates, it is possible, though certainly not proven, that President Obama, through the actions of others, may have benefitted by the ease with which one can obtain a birth certificate proving U.S. citizenship. Arpaio says his investigators will continue to delve into this matter but ultimately this investigation needs to be given to the proper authority to further. &quot;Through the hard work of Mike Zullo and his team of investigators we have pointed out some inconsistencies, or oddities, relating to the President’s birth certificate. Taken one by one they may not be terribly concerning. But put them altogether and they paint a picture of deception that requires a federal inquiry,&quot; Arpaio says. &quot;My hope is that the U.S. Congress will take over from here if not to further the birth certificate forgery possibility, then at least to examine the state of Hawaii’s laws in regards to the issuance of birth certificates which may be permitting untold numbers of foreign born people to wrongly gain U.S. citizenship,&quot; Arpaio says. </p> <p>'Indisputable Proof' of Obama Forgery Was Released at 5:30 pmET July 17 </p> <p>This Is the Beginning of the End of the Usurper-In-Chief </p> <p>At a news conference Tuesday in Phoenix that will be live-streamed by WND, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse will present “indisputable proof” the Obama birth document released by the White House is a forgery, according to the posse’s lead investigator.

CLICK HERE to LISTEN. </p> <p>The investigative team also promises to release more conclusions drawn from computer analysis of the document the White House released April 27, 2011. The White House claimed the document was “proof positive” that Obama is eligible for the presidency under Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution. At the March 1 conference, as WND reported, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced that probable cause exists to believe that the document purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate is a forgery. The posse said it also found probable cause to believe that Obama’s Selective Service registration form is fraudulent. Three weeks after the March 1 press conference, Arpaio said there would be “tons” more potentially shocking information on Obama in connection with his probe into the president’s eligibility. WND reported in May that a letter from Hawaii’s Department of Health verifying Obama’s birth in Honolulu has “opened the door” to some “shocking revelations” the posse is promising to disclose. Zullo said at the time he could not reveal more information but noted he and his investigators had reservations about a letter stamped with Registrar Alvin Onaka’s name that was sent to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett as verification of Obama’s Hawaiian birth. Zullo said the letter fails to list Obama’s birth date and is merely stamped with the registrar’s name, while another person’s initials appear next to the signature.

(Press Conference, Tuesday July 17th) </p> <p>By Dan Anderson -- Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virgina. I’ll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting parts: EXCERPTS: </p> <p>“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” &quot;The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.&quot; – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012. </p> <p>YouTube of this asinine statement (35 secs) It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, “Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?” And to some extent, President Obama’s statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response. However, he’s not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he’s talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business’s success isn’t purely that of its founder. Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That’s why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn’t invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. “Somebody else” did indeed play a part in making that happen. But what makes the president’s remarks so inane is the totality of what he’s saying. He’s not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It’s not a collaborative effort. It’s all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president’s mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me. As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he’s still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn’t exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, “…you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen,” is just wrong. It’s silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business. Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don’t), then they’ll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It’s a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs. In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I’m over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn’t a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn’t really mean. He’s a very smart man, and he meant what he said. When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it’s essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don’t build businesses. Ultimately, they’re irrelevant. Take that for what you will. </p> <p>Trump Hounds Obama: Romney Shouldn't Disclose Tax Returns Until Obama Proves His Identity . . . If He Can!

As one who believes in freedom and democracy for all, I honor the Red nation.” — FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS, 1947 </p> <p>By Paul Kengor -- He was skeptical of preachers and their effect on God-and-gun clinging Americans, and saw the Catholic Church as an obstacle to his policies, plans, and vision for the state. At the same time, he argued that Christians should support his ideas and enthusiastically sought the support of the &quot;social justice&quot; Religious Left for various causes and campaigns. And yet, many people were unclear about his personal religious beliefs, including whether he was a Christian. Some even dared to call him a communist, while he described himself as &quot;progressive.&quot; Sound familiar? Who is this man? If you answered &quot;Barack Obama,&quot; you're only half right. The answer is Frank Marshall Davis, Hawaii mentor to a young Barack Obama, and Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member 47544. This week, we're officially releasing my biography of Obama's mentor, titled, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor (Released July 17 - Amazon $17.92). That book will get dissected from a thousand different angles, but I fear most will miss one of the more compelling components -- namely, the faith of Frank Marshall Davis, and its often odd parallels to our president today. First, a few words on who Davis was, and how he came to meet a young Obama: Frank Marshall Davis (1905-87) was a writer, poet, and political extremist. His politics were so extreme that he eventually joined the Communist Party in Chicago in the early 1940s. He became very active in Party circles. In 1946, he became the founding editor-in-chief of the Chicago Star, the CPUSA organ for Chicago. There, Davis shared the op-ed page with the likes of Howard Fast, a &quot;Stalin Prize&quot; winner, and Senator Claude &quot;Red&quot; Pepper, who, at the time, sponsored the bill to nationalize healthcare in the United States. Davis and his Star favored taxpayer-funding of universal healthcare, blasted Wall Street and big business and big oil, demanded wealth redistribution to fund &quot;public works projects,&quot; attacked GOP tax cuts, excoriated &quot;profits&quot; and millionaires and corporate executives -- all traits we'd see one day in the young man Davis influenced, Barack Obama. Davis left the Star in 1948 for Hawaii, where he would write for the CPUSA organ there, the Honolulu Record. His politics remained so radical that the FBI had Davis under continued surveillance. What's more, the federal government placed Davis on the Security Index, meaning that in the event of a war between the United States and USSR, Barack Obama's mentor could be placed under immediate arrest. Davis's targets were Democrats more than Republicans, given that it was Democrats like Harry Truman who opposed Stalin's Soviet expansion. In December 1956, the Democrat-run Senate Judiciary Committee called Davis to Washington to testify on his activities. Davis pleaded the Fifth. No matter, the next year, the Democratic Senate published a report titled, &quot;Scope of Soviet Activity in the United States,&quot; where it listed Davis as &quot;an identified member of the Communist Party.&quot; Frank Marshall Davis would meet Obama in 1970, introduced by Obama's grandfather, Stanley Dunham, for the purpose of mentoring. An eyewitness, a woman named Dawna Weatherly-Williams, who knew Davis so well that she called him &quot;Daddy,&quot; was present the first time Obama and Davis met. She described the relationship as very influential, with Davis impacting Obama on &quot;social justice,&quot; on &quot;life,&quot; on &quot;what's important,&quot; on no less than &quot;how to use&quot; his &quot;heart&quot; and &quot;mind.&quot; Stanley Dunham hoped Obama would find in Davis the father figure and role model he lacked. So deep was the influence that Obama, in Dreams from My Father, would cite Davis dozens of times over thousands of words and in each and every section of his memoirs. There's much more that could be said on all of that, but -- sticking to my theme here -- how does the faith factor figure into this story? Well, mentors, of course, matter. I have done several biographies. As every biographer knows, you start with the mentors. In my biographies of Ronald Reagan, I found that Reagan's mentor was a pastor, Ben Cleaver, a University of Chicago theology graduate, intellectual, patriotic, given to invoking Washington and Lincoln, seeing America as exceptional, a Shining City on a Hill. In my biography of Reagan's closest aide, Bill Clark, a devout Catholic, I detailed how Clark invoked the influence of brilliant Catholics minds like Fulton Sheen and Thomas Merton. In my biography of Hillary Clinton, I found a pastor as a mentor: Don Jones, youth minister at First Methodist Church in Park Ridge, Illinois. Jones had the young Hillary read Tillich, Niebuhr, Soren Kierkegaard, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. In the case of all of these influences, the mentor entered their lives in adolescence and remained right up to their departure for college -- just like Frank Marshall Davis in the case of Obama. In the case of Davis, however, the influence was hardly religious, and didn't exactly view America as a Shining City. To the contrary, in Frank Marshall Davis, we find a resentfulness of religion and God. Davis had been raised by Baptist parents and taught the power of prayer &quot;from infancy.&quot; But he felt he did not see results. To be fair, he witnessed some terrible racial persecution in the Jim Crow South. When he read about a young black mother who was burned at the stake while the white mob laughed at her cries, little Frank knelt at his bedside and &quot;prayed for retribution.&quot; When nothing happened to the perpetrators (at least in this world), he was puzzled. &quot;I became deeply depressed,&quot; he wrote in his memoirs, &quot;feeling that God had somehow let me down.&quot; Of course, many black Americans felt this pain, but typically with a different reaction, turning to God rather than away from God. They understood that people were bad and only God is good. The problem wasn't Christianity, or Christ, but bad Christians. Not God, but men. God and Christ and Heaven were good. If only Frank Marshall Davis would have taken away that understanding. He did not. &quot;Very well,&quot; he scoffed. If this was the Christian religion, &quot;Then I was through with it.&quot; And there was more to Frank Marshall Davis's rejection of God. His grandfather was agnostic, and those seeds, when mixed with (perceived) non-answers to young Frank's prayers for retribution, &quot;fell in welcoming soil.&quot; (As a parallel to Barack Obama, Newsweek described Obama's grandfather as a &quot;lapsed Christian&quot; who likewise did not nurture in Obama a Christian belief system, nor did Obama's grandmother nor mother, with the grandparents at best attending a Unitarian Church known among locals as &quot;The Little Red Church on the Hill.&quot;) Davis said that his grandfather &quot;converted me almost immediately.&quot; He was easy prey. Turning away from the light, Frank Marshall Davis began haunting the recesses of the Wichita Public Library, where he imbibed in the anti-God writings of agnostics and atheists. This was a pivotal period. By then, Davis was not an immature five-year-old with childlike questions but an 18-year-old becoming a man. His break from Jesus Christ was intellectually reinforced. Moreover, this break would be further reinforced by atheistic communists that Davis came to meet. Among them, Davis came to know and greatly respect the black American poet and intellectual, Langston Hughes. And Hughes, for the record, was not merely a poet but also a loyal Soviet patriot. His devotion to the Stalinist cause was evident in one of his most infamous quotes: &quot;Put one more 'S' in the USA to make it Soviet,&quot; declared Hughes. &quot;The USA when we take control will be the USSA.&quot; He urged the Marxist faithful to rise and fight for the &quot;great red flag ... of the Communist] Internationale.&quot; In 1932, Hughes took his devotion directly to Stalin's USSR. There he found his god. &quot;There,&quot; wrote Hughes of his Moscow pilgrimage, &quot;it seemed to me that Marxism had put into practical being many of the precepts which our own Christian America had not yet been able to bring to life.&quot; Moved by the Soviet spirit, Hughes penned his worst poem: Goodbye Christ, Lord Jehovah, Beat it on away from here, make way for a new guy with no religion at all, A real guy named Marx, Communism, Lenin, Peasant, Stalin, worker, me. </p> <p>Beat it, Christ. Move over for someone real: Marx, Lenin, Stalin. This was Langston Hughes. Overall, despite such negative influences, Frank Marshall Davis said in his memoirs that he did not forever physically desert churches, always seeing them as valuable social centers for black Americans who needed them and for addressing problems of everyday living. Did he become a lifelong committed agnostic or atheist? He does not clarify in his memoirs, though he clearly rejected the Christian faith at one point. And as we shall see in his writings from the 1940s and 1950s, he would take pointed jabs at Christians for their supposed sins of anti-communism and anti-Sovietism. In my next article, I will take a look at some of those jabs delivered by Frank Marshall Davis, Obama's mentor. This is part one of an exclusive two-part series written adapted from the author's newly released book, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mentor. </p> <p>&#9679; Frank Marshall Davis FBI Files: Pages from the FBI File (This 40-page report includes selected pages from the FBI file which document Davis's Communist history and pro-Soviet and anti-white views - PDF) — FBI File #1 — FBI File #2 — FBI File #3 — FBI File #4 — FBI File #5 — FBI File #6 Lots more on Obama's &quot;Uncle Frank&quot; (Frank Marshall Davis) HERE </p> <p>Why Obummer is Still in the Race Despite the Bad Economy &quot;Outta my way! . . . I'm heading 'Forward' . . . at breakneck speed.&quot; </p> <p>By Scott Rasmussen (Pollster) -- There are plenty of reasons that the economy is the most important issue of Election 2012. Unemployment has remained high for a long time, and even 27 percent of those who have a job are worried about losing it. Only half of homeowners now believe their home is worth more than what they still owe on it. Just 16 percent believe that today's children will be better off than their parents. These numbers present a real challenge for President Obama. Americans today rate their own financial health just about the same as they did on the day he was inaugurated, but not nearly as well as they did in the fall of 2008. Only 30 percent believe the country is better off than it was four years ago. The president does benefit from a belief that he inherited a bad economy and that the recession was created by the Bush administration. But most voters also believe that his policies have hurt more than they've helped. Overall, by a 50 percent to 42 percent margin, voters trust Mitt Romney more than the president when it comes to managing the economy. Still, the president remains very competitive in his bid for re-election. This may be partly due to the fact that there has been some very modest economic growth over the past couple of years. It also may be because Americans aren't feeling all that good about either candidate. If the president is re-elected, just 32 percent of voters nationwide believe the economy will get better, while 37 percent believe it will get worse. If Romney wins in November, 36 percent expect the economy to improve, but 35 percent believe the opposite. So Romney has a slight edge, but the emphasis is on the word slight. And among the key block of unaffiliated voters who will decide the election, just one in four expects either man to make things better. Part of the skepticism comes from the fact that 66 percent of voters believe that the best thing the government could do to help the economy is to cut spending. But most voters don't believe spending will be cut no matter who wins in November. Additionally, voters overwhelmingly trust their own economic judgment more than they either Romney's or Obama's. Yet there is a larger issue at work here. Politicians and their cheerleaders in the political class assume that the role of government is to manage the economy. Most voters don't. In fact, most think it's more important for the government to protect individual rights than to promote economic growth. That leaves the business of job creation and economic growth to the private sector, a perspective that makes sense to most Americans. Sixty percent believe job growth will come from business leaders who are focused narrowly on trying to help their own businesses grow. Just 24 percent think decisions made by government officials focused on public policy will create more jobs. A politician promising to fix the economy has about as much credibility as a plumber promising to fix your electrical problems. Most voters recognize the importance of government in providing a healthy business environment, but they believe it's the private sector that creates economic growth. They're hoping to find a president who understands that, as well. Scott Rasmussen is founder and president of Rasmussen Reports.

It might help explain why I fear a second term of Barack Obama so much. I understand what Obama is and what he is doing because I was once like him: I am a former communist. As a youth growing up during the Vietnam War, I was influenced by some of the more extreme, anti-American opposition to that conflict and began to identify with the enemy. I became convinced the U.S. epitomized all that was evil in the world. During high school, I was arrested in what we called “anti-war demonstrations” that should be more accurately termed “anti-American riots.” Just like Obama, my youthful radicalism attracted the attention of powerful and influential people in the country. I was recruited for full-ride scholarships at colleges like Antioch, known for grooming the next generation of leftists. When I got into trouble for refusing to salute the flag, the American Civil Liberties Union was there, johnny-on-the-spot, to defend me and bring the school principal to his knees. During the euphemistically named “Indo-China Peace Campaign” organized by Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda, I was given the “honor” of serving as a body guard for Fonda, recently returned from North Vietnam where she posed for photographs sitting in an anti-aircraft emplacement meant to shoot down American planes. I was recruited for terrorist attacks like blowing up chemical plants by older radicals who didn’t have the courage to do it themselves. (I thank God today, I never followed through on these plots.) I wrote for some of the most left-wing periodicals in America – the Guardian, the Liberated Guardian and more. And my reputation preceded me. Even after college, when my views had moderated considerably, I was invited to meet Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who were still underground for their own acts of domestic terrorism. I tell you all of this – and there’s much more to the story – to illustrate the extent of my delusional misguidedness bred into me by a cadre of older and even less wise facilitators. I’ve spent decades repudiating all those lies – deceptions and disinformation I understand better than most having been a victim of them. But maybe I should have run for president instead. Because the little we know about Barack Obama’s life is ever-so familiar to me. I was groomed to be a community organizer, but rejected that path. He accepted it and it led him to the White House where he has been a force for evil for the last four years. Is it easy to conceal that kind of indiscretion? You bet. I’m openly discussing them here for the first time some 40 years later, having written 13 books and tens of millions of words in 35-year career in journalism. The only difference between Obama and me is that he never changed. He is as radical today as he was when he launched his political career in the living room of Ayers and Dohrn. He loathes all America stands for today as much as he did when he worked as a lawyer for the political racketeering ACORN. I understand him. I can decode his rhetoric. I still know how the extreme left thinks. I know what their goals are. And I know how badly Obama and his entourage want to “fundamentally change” America. That’s why this election year represents America’s last chance to save itself from ruin, from catastrophe, from irreversible calamity, from revolution. It’s true that we don’t have the kind of choice I would like to see. I don’t relish going to the polls this November to vote for Mitt Romney, because, frankly, he’s not the answer to the crisis Obama and 40 years of cultural Marxism have bestowed upon America.This election represents our last chance to stop the bleeding, to buy the good ship America time to right its course, to at least slow our descent into economic and social chaos. America needs to awaken, like I did. America needs to repent, like I did. America needs to make a political and spiritual U-turn, like I did. We’re running out of time. </p> <p>Who’s Bailing on Obama? Just About Everybody That Counts — Let’s Look at the Polls! ANALYSIS/OPINION by Joseph Curl: -- Today, let’s look at the polls — all of them. To start with, health care: Just 6 percent of Americans think health care is the most pressing issue, according to the latest Gallup poll. Why? Because lots of those Americans don’t have jobs or are underemployed — the real jobless rate nationwide is more like 14.9 percent, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. So savoring his big win on health care is most definitely a waste of time for President Obama, and he knows it. After less than a week of spiking the football (a relatively short time for America’s most narcissistic president ever), the president is back on the campaign trail. What’s striking is where he’s going: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa — places he won in 2008. Why? Simple. All the latest polls show he’s losing … well, everyone. He’s down 13 points with voters ages 18 to 25, nearly half of whom think he’s done a mediocre job, according to Students for Life of America. The healthy young don’t really care about health care, but they do care about jobs — and nearly 2 million 20- to 24-year-olds are unemployed. “With skyrocketing student debt and grim unemployment prospects for those out of college, young voters’ collective love affair with the president has abated,” SFLA Executive Director Kristan Hawkins said. The rate is far worse if you’re young and black. For blacks ages 16 to 19, the unemployment rate is now 39.3 percent, up from 36.5 percent last month. Older blacks don’t fare much better: The overall rate for blacks rose nearly a full percentage point in June to 14.4 percent. Which explains why Mr. Obama, the first half-black president, is faring so poorly with blacks. A recent poll by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed that Mitt Romney would get 20 percent of the black vote in the crucial swing state of North Carolina — where Mr. Obama took 95 percent of that vote in 2008. Nationwide, his approval rating among blacks is down nine points to 77 percent while Mr. Romney’s has doubled to 18 percent. His half-white side isn’t faring much better. White support is down six points from November 2008 to just 38 percent, according to a Gallup poll in June. Despite his nonstop class warfare, Mr. Obama has dropped most among less-affluent whites, down nine points with whites who make $60,000 or less per year. “President Obama does not currently have enough white support to win re-election even if he retains his minority base from 2008,” Real Clear Politics’ David Paul Kuhn wrote late last month. “Today, fewer whites back Obama than any Democratic candidate since Walter Mondale. Romney does not need to emulate Ronald Reagan to win. Should he match Reagan’s share of the white vote in 1984 — presuming all else remains constant since 2008 — Romney would rout Obama.” Mr. Obama is perhaps doing worst among postgraduate white women — down nine points. In another key swing state, Florida, a June poll shows Mr. Romney closing a double-digit gap among women to actually take the lead, 48 percent to 46 percent. In Ohio, women are split: 47 percent approve of Mr. Obama, 47 percent disapprove — a dismal number for a Democrat who took 56 percent of the female vote in 2008. Like all other demographics, women care most about jobs. Perhaps this time around, they’re put off by the fact that 780,000 fewer women are employed than when Mr. Obama took office. Another key group, Jews, also are bailing in droves. A June poll by Gallup showed the president down 10 points to 64 percent — he took three-quarters of the vote in 2008. “Obama’s current support is the lowest percentage for any Democrat since Jimmy Carter,” the Jerusalem Post wrote. “The average Jewish vote for a Democrat is 71%, so his support is significantly below average. In fact, the last two Democrats to receive less than 70% of the Jewish vote — Michael] Dukakis and Mondale — both lost.” (No wonder Mr. Romney is planning a trip to Israel, a place Mr. Obama has never gone as president, nor even has Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.) The only demographic with whom Mr. Obama is still strong is Hispanics, thanks to his extraconsitutional move to allow more than a million illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. But while the move made half of Hispanics in swing states Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Virginia “more enthusiastic” about the Democrat, he still falls short of his 2008 support. A new NBC News-Wall Street Journal-Telemundo poll shows 66 percent of Hispanics nationwide support Mr. Obama, yet he took 67 percent of the vote in 2008. “Their interest in this election remains far below 2008 levels, and lags well behind other key groups this cycle,” NBC News said. So, they aren’t all that enthused. Again, the economy and jobs weigh heaviest for the demographic: The latest unemployment numbers show the rate at 11 percent for Hispanics, nearly three points higher than the overall average. While the lack of enthusiasm for Mr. Obama does not translate into enthusiasm for Mr. Romney, the GOP candidate has a clear path to victory: Nibble away at the margins the president won in 2008 — across all demographics. Pick up 4 percent here, 9 percent there … until victory. </p> <p>Why So Many People Think Obama Is a Muslim &quot;Betcha you've never heard of TAQIYYA, you morons!&quot; By Pamela Geller -- A new Gallup poll shows that 11% of Americans think Obama is a Muslim, and the leftist media just can't figure out why anyone would get that idea. Slate concluded that it must be because of &quot;his exotic name and background, the color of his skin, or (most likely) some combination of the two.&quot; But in reality, the reason why people think Obama is a Muslim is because of how he acts. Why do people believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim? Here's why: after the Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian presidency, the military moved to curb the president's powers in order to stave off sharia rule in Egypt. But then Obama warned the military that they better hand over power quickly, or Egypt would lose billions in U.S. aid. It wasn't enough that Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood to his submission speech in Cairo in June 2009, despite the fact that the group was banned at that time for obvious reasons: they wanted to install a sharia government, and the draconian, barbaric code of sharia, in Egypt. It wasn't enough that after he invited the Brotherhood to his speech; he had officials in his administration meeting with this Islamic supremacist group. It wasn't enough that he abandoned the true freedom movement, when the women of Iran and Persians and Zoroastrians rose up after 30 years of oppressive sharia rule. Obama spit on them and left them to die. They met bullets with bare flesh and broken bricks. It was a squandered historical moment: by supporting the demonstrators in Iran, Obama could have done much to remove the head of the snake of Hezb'allah, Hamas, the Shi'ites fighting American soldiers in Iraq, the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the Shia agitation in Bahrain. Obama could have saved the free world and gone down in history as one of the magnificent heroes for good. But that is not who he is. He is a tool, a malevolent subversive who managed to seize the most powerful office in the world with the PR expertise of the enemedia. Obama's war on the good continued. It wasn't enough that he abandoned our Mubarak, our 30-year ally in Egypt, the first Muslim country to make peace with the Jewish people despite the Jew-hatred mandated in the Quran. It wasn't enough that he threw our great friend and ally out with both hands, a man who for all his undeniable faults was the most liberal of reformers in the Muslim countries in that region. And here we are with the Brotherhood victorious, and what does the leader of the free world do? He threatens to withhold all U.S. aid to anyone who stops the Muslim Brotherhood from taking power. Does he threaten to withhold aid from the Muslims in Gaza who daily talk about their desire to destroy Israel and annihilate the Jews, and who glory in the murders of young families with their children, and lob rockets into civilian areas so that the people there have to live in terror going to work and to school? Of course not -- he increases the aid to the annihilationists who thirst for genocide in their mad Islamic Jew-hatred. And the media wonders why so many people think Obama is a Muslim? Obama has banned the word &quot;jihad&quot; and any discussion of Islam from State, Defense, and Justice Department vernacular and counter-terrorism materials. He is denying that jihad is the enemy, while his Justice Department acts as the de facto legal arm for Muslim Brotherhood groups in America. And the Obama administration has held hundreds of meetings with U.S. Hamas front groups. Obama is withholding evidence in the Fort Hood jihad that has held up the court case of the single worst act of war on a military base in U.S. history. The Obama administration refers to the Fort Hood jihad as &quot;workplace violence.&quot; The trial of the Fort Hood jihadi (who was screaming &quot;Allahu akbar&quot; as he mowed down 13 U.S. soldiers) has been delayed repeatedly because Major Hasan came in sporting the religious beard of the devout Muslim. The appeaser-in-chief excoriates America for Guantánamo, which provides its enemy combatants with Korans, laptops, duck ŕ l'orange, and my, oh my, the inhumanity of it all. He flogged and beat us with his wet waterboarding noodle. He cried for Khalid Sheik Muhammad's nose -- despite the fact that the enhanced interrogations saved the lives of thousands in Los Angeles. Three mass murderers were waterboarded (along with scores of CIA and military folks), and Obama was shocked, shocked, I tell ya. Obama has made several Muslim Brotherhood appointments to key high-level, sensitive positions. Obama has told us time and time again that &quot;we will never be at war with Islam&quot; (even if Muslims are at war with us). He has removed the sanctions covering religious freedom from the State Department's Country Reports on Human Rights -- and it just so happens that the worst offenders against religious freedom are Muslim countries. In June 2010 I wrote an article containing a long list of the things Obama had done since becoming president that made people think he was a Muslim. I wrote: &quot;Obama took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and yet whether he is a Muslim or not, he has undeniably gone around the world promoting Islam and Sharia (Islamic law).&quot; Since then, he has continued to do so. He keeps fueling the impression that he is a Muslim by his actions, which have been consistent. He killed Osama and Awlaki? Sure...but he has never moved against pro-sharia Islamic supremacists. Quite the contrary. By their fruits ye shall know them, and so we know him. The left media should stop beating people up for being logical.

Daniels, who has vetted thousands of Social Security Numbers for numerous other clients, has done her homework. In her filing, she thoroughly documents her contention “that Barack Obama has repeatedly, consistently, and with intent misrepresented himself by using a fraudulently obtained Social Security Number.” To acquire appropriate standing in court, Daniels has gone to the trouble of establishing herself as a valid write-in candidate for president. Before she is through, this 70-something mother of seven, who has been a licensed Ohio PI since 1995, may cause Obama more trouble than the Romney campaign. Daniels started her investigation in August 2009. Given her profession, she has been able to access a variety of proprietary databases. What she learned without much trouble is that Obama has been using a Social Security Number with the prefix “042&#8243; since 1986. As she discovered, the “042&#8243; number is reserved for the exclusive use of individuals who register in Connecticut. When she ran 10 sequential numbers before and after Obama’s, all returned with the documentation “issued 1977-1979 in CT.” When Daniels ran the numbers immediately flanking Obama’s, she came to the firm conviction that Obama’s number was issued in March 1977 in Connecticut. By all accounts, as Daniels thoroughly documents, Obama was then a 15-year-old living in Hawaii. There is no record of him even visiting Connecticut in or near this time frame. To have gotten a Social Security card at this time Obama would have had to show up for a “mandatory in-person interview.” This could not have taken place in Connecticut. Obama’s sister, Maya, by contrast, uses a number appropriate for a Hawaiian resident. Daniels checked other databases as well to validate her findings, including the Massachusetts Department of Motor Vehicles and the IRS. Yes, Obama used the 042 number to get a driver’s license when at Harvard and as recently as on his 2009 income tax return. In her research, Daniels kept coming across what she calls a “marked anomaly,” one she had never seen before – multiple birthdates listed for the same person. The 08/04/1961 and 04/08/1961 variation made sense, but the frequent appearance of the year “1890&#8243; did not. The ample evidence Daniels gathered led her to believe that the 042 number Obama has been using “had previously been issued to another person,” one who lived in Connecticut between 1977 and 1979 and who was born in 1890. This assertion can be verified. By law, the Social Security Administration will have kept on microfilm a copy of the original SS-5 application attached to a particular Social Security Number. Daniels, however, does not have access to that microfilm. For this reason, Daniels has filed suit. “Defendant Husted, through this filing,” she argues, “has been made aware that the Democratic Candidate has been using a fraudulent Social Security Number, which would render Barack Obama ineligible under both the Ohio and U.S. Constitutions.” Daniels asks the court, among other things, to issue an injunction against Obama’s name appearing on ballot until it is determined that he is using a proper Social Security Number. Given the response of courts elsewhere, it is unlikely that Daniels will find satisfaction in Geauga County or from the Republican secretary of state. What Daniels has done, however, is establish a paper trail so indisputably legitimate that even the most squeamish of conservative media will have a hard time finding fault. The major media, of course, will not bother to look. It is up to our Beltway brethren to step up and ask some very basic questions of the president that they, through their timidity in 2008, helped elect. The Romney campaign cannot talk about this issue without their support. </p> <p>BACKGROUND: Obama's 16 Different Social Security Numbers Susan Daniels, a second investigator filed an affidavit, with true and correct copies below, in the Barnett v. Obama case. Susan Daniels is a private investigator, licensed by the State of Ohio. In her affidavit, Daniels states that she has located Barack Obama's Social Security Number. She states it was issued between 1977 and 1979 in the State of Connecticut. She states that it is the only Social Security Number Barack Obama ever used. The number assigned to Barack Obama &quot;appears to be associated with someone born in 1890.&quot; That someone was a deceased man named Harrison J. Bounel who was issued the SSN 042-68-4425 in Connecticut, and which was stolen by Barack Obama in the late 70's. Extracted from an article by Steve Baldwin. Read the whole thing here . </p> <p>Private investigator Neil Sankey, using Intelius, Lexis Nexis, Choice Point and other public records, found around 25 Social Security numbers connected with Barack Obama’s name.However, it may not be as many as 25, since Sankey also searched using closely related names such as: &quot;Barak Obama,&quot; &quot;Batock Obama,&quot; &quot;Barok Obama,&quot; and &quot;Barrack Obama.&quot; There may very well be some Kenyans living in America with the same last name and a similar first name. In any case, I will exclude these records for the purpose of this research and focus only on names spelled exactly like his name. Moreover, we can verify many of the Social Security numbers as valid since they’re connected to addresses at which we know Obama resided. Needless to say, there are also a slew of address and social security numbers connected to addresses in states that Obama has no known connection to. In Obama’s home state, Illinois, Sankey tracked down 16 different addresses for a Barack Obama or a Barack H. Obama, of which all are addresses he was known to have lived at. Two Social Security numbers appear for these addresses, one beginning with 042, and one starting 364. In California, where Obama attended Occidental College, there are six addresses listed for him, all within easy driving distance of the college. However, there are three Social Security numbers connected to these addresses, 537 and two others, each beginning with 999, which are not valid SSNs. There are no addresses listed in New York where he attended Columbia University, but there is one listed for him in nearby Jackson, NJ, with a Social Security number beginning with 485. In Massachusetts -- where Obama attended Harvard Law School -- we find three addresses, all using the 042 Social Security number. After Obama was elected to the United States Senate in 2005, he moved into an apartment at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW; the Social Security number attached to that address is the 042 one. Yet, three years later, Obama used a different Social Security number for an address listed as: 713 Hart Senate Office Building. This was the address of his United States Senate office. This Social Security number began with 282 and was verified by the government in 2008. This mystery grows even stranger as other addresses and Social Security numbers for Barack Obama appear in a dozen other states not known to be connected to him. Again, I am excluding those records names not spelled exactly like his name. </p> <p>Tennessee, one address with a Social Security number beginning with 427 Colorado, one address, with a Social Security number beginning with 456. Utah, two addresses, with two Social Security numbers beginning with 901 and 799. Missouri has one address and one Social Security number beginning with 999. Florida has two addresses listed for his him, three if you count one listed as &quot;Barry Obama.&quot; One is connected to a Social Security number beginning with 762. In Georgia there are three addresses listed for him, all with different Social Security numbers: 579, 420, and 423. In Texas there are four different addresses listed for him, one is connected to Social Security number 675. There are two addresses listed for Barack Obama in Oregon and one address listed for him in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania. </p> <p>All told, there are 49 addresses and 16 different Social Security numbers listed for a person whose name is spelled &quot;Barack Obama.&quot; In some cases, the middle initial &quot;H&quot; is listed. If you were to expand the search to include closely related names such as: &quot;Barac,&quot; &quot;Barak,&quot; and &quot;Barrack&quot; Obama, you would find more than a dozen additional addresses and Social Security numbers. Finally, the one Social Security number Obama most frequently used, the one beginning with 042, is a number issued in Connecticut sometime during 1976-1977, yet there is no record of Obama ever living or working in Connecticut. Indeed, during this time period Obama would have been 15-16 years old and living in Hawaii at the time. </p> <p>PARADIGM SHIFT: OBAMACARE MANDATE BECOMES A TAX — THE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN U.S. HISTORY </p> <p>FLASHBACK: Remember Obama saying &quot;Mandate is Not a Tax&quot; </p> <p>Scotus BLOG: The Affordable Care Act, including its individual mandate that virtually all Americans buy health insurance, is constitutional. There were not five votes to uphold it on the ground that Congress could use its power to regulate commerce between the states to require everyone to buy health insurance. However, five Justices agreed that the penalty that someone must pay if he refuses to buy insurance is a kind of tax that Congress can impose using its taxing power. That is all that matters. Because the mandate survives, the Court did not need to decide what other parts of the statute were constitutional, except for a provision that required states to comply with new eligibility requirements for Medicaid or risk losing their funding. On that question, the Court held that the provision is constitutional as long as states would only lose new funds if they didn’t comply with the new requirements, rather than all of their funding. </p> <p>SARAH PALIN: Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened! Thank God. VIDEO: Palin on ObamaCare ruling: 'Obama lies, freedom dies'. VIDEO: Palin says, “Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat and the perfect spokesman for this whole agenda of the far left.” </p> <p>This proves to be such an unsettling time in America as we undergo the fundamental transformation that Barack Obama promised he would do to us if elected. Obamacare was dealt in deception and confusion by flooding the public with an overwhelming amount of conflicting “rationale” via thousands of pages of unread legislative detail, which is the radical left’s M.O. Obama promised the American people this wasn’t a tax and that he’d never raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. We now see that this is the largest tax increase in history. It will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes. The other 50% are being deceived if they think they’re going to get a free ride – because Medicaid is broke. Recipients of Obama’s “free health care” will have fewer choices and less accessibility. Trust me – this much more expensive health care WILL be rationed; to claim otherwise defies all economic and common sense. We will not retreat on this. A newly elected legislative branch is key to defending our Republic and fundamentally restoring all that is good in America. SCOTUS now rules this is a tax? Well, Congress has the ability to create taxes – and also has the ability to rescind them. Upon their return from the July recess, Congress should act immediately to repeal this terrible new tax on the American people, and indeed they must repeal all of Obamacare. This is the most brazen and sweeping new tax and government overreach imposed on us. We the People did not ask for this tax, we do not want this tax, and we can’t afford this tax. This is not an answer to America’s health care challenges. It’s time, again, for patriotic Americans to rise up to protest this obvious infringement on our economic and personal freedom. November is just around the corner. Today, the Supreme Court issued their ruling on Obamacare. In November, We the People will issue ours. - Sarah Palin </p> <p>This Election Just Became About Obamacare By Jeffrey H. Anderson -- In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare, the principal choice now facing Americans on November 6 will be whether to keep Obamacare or to repeal it. The question is a binary one, and the answer — expressed almost entirely through their presidential vote — will go a long way toward determining the future course of this great nation. Yes, the economy is extremely important; and, yes, Obamacare is hurting the economy.

Continued &gt; &gt; </p> <p>Obama the First Invented-American President Revealed: Obama born in a petri dish — but where? Bookstores Alert!! Move All Obama Memoirs to the 'Fiction Section' Immediately!! By Mark Steyn -- Courtesy of David Maraniss' new book &quot;Barack Obama: The Story&quot; ($17.98), we now know that yet another key prop of Barack Obama's identity is false: His Kenyan grandfather was not brutally tortured or even non-brutally detained by his British colonial masters. The composite gram'pa joins an ever-swelling cast of characters from Barack's &quot;memoir&quot; who, to put it discreetly, differ somewhat in reality from their bit parts in the grand Obama narrative. The best friend at school portrayed in Obama's autobiography as &quot;a symbol of young blackness&quot; was, in fact, half Japanese, and not a close friend. The white girlfriend he took to an off-Broadway play that prompted an angry post-show exchange about race never saw the play, dated Obama in an entirely different time zone, and had no such world-historically significant conversation with him. His Indonesian step-grandfather, supposedly killed by Dutch soldiers during his people's valiant struggle against colonialism, met his actual demise when he &quot;fell off a chair at his home while trying to hang drapes.&quot; </p> <p>David Maraniss is no right-winger, and can't understand why boorish nonliterary types have seized on his book as evidence that the president of the United States is a Grade A phony. &quot;It is a legitimate question about where the line is in memoir,&quot; he told Soledad O'Brien on CNN. My Oxford dictionary defines &quot;memoir&quot; as &quot;an historical account or biography written from personal knowledge.&quot; And if Obama doesn't have &quot;personal knowledge&quot; of his tortured grandfather, war-hero step-grandfather and racially obsessed theater-buff girlfriend, who does? But in recent years, the Left has turned the fake memoir into one of the most prestigious literary genres: Oprah's Book Club recommended James Frey's &quot;A Million Little Pieces,&quot; hailed by Bret Easton Ellis as a &quot;heartbreaking memoir&quot; of &quot;poetic honesty,&quot; but subsequently revealed to be heavy on the &quot;poetic&quot; and rather light on the &quot;honesty.&quot; The &quot;heartbreaking memoir&quot; of a drug-addled street punk who got tossed in the slammer after brawling with cops while high on crack with his narco-hooker girlfriend proved to be the work of some suburban Pat Boone type with a couple of parking tickets. (I exaggerate, but not as much as he did.) </p> <p>Oprah was also smitten by &quot;The Education of Little Tree,&quot; the heartwarmingly honest memoir of a Cherokee childhood which turned out to be concocted by a former Klansman whose only previous notable literary work was George Wallace's &quot;Segregation Forever&quot; speech. &quot;Fragments: Memories of a Wartime Childhood&quot; is a heartbreakingly honest, poetically searing, searingly painful, painfully honest, etc., account of Binjamin Wilkomirski's unimaginably horrific boyhood in the Jewish ghetto of Riga and the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz. After his memoir won America's respected National Jewish Book Award, Mr. Wilkomirski was inevitably discovered to have been born in Switzerland and spent the war in a prosperous neighborhood of Zurich being raised by a nice middle-class couple. He certainly had a deprived childhood, at least from the point of view of a literary agent pitching a memoir to a major publisher. But the &quot;unimaginable&quot; horror of his book turned out to be all too easily imagined. Fake memoirs have won the Nobel Peace Prize and are taught at Ivy League schools to the scions of middle-class families who take on six-figure debts for the privilege (&quot;I, Rigoberta Menchu&quot;). They're handed out by the Pentagon to senior officers embarking on a tour of Afghanistan (Greg Mortenson's &quot;Three Cups of Tea&quot;) on the entirely reasonable grounds that a complete fantasy could hardly be less credible than current NATO strategy. </p> <p>In such a world, it was surely only a matter of time before a fake memoirist got elected as president of the United States. Indeed, the aforementioned Rigoberta Menchu ran as a candidate in the 2007 and 2011 presidential elections in Guatemala, although she got knocked out in the first round – Guatemalans evidently being disinclined to elect someone to the highest office in the land with no accomplishment whatsoever apart from a lousy fake memoir. Which just goes to show what a bunch of unsophisticated rubes they are. </p> <p>In an inspired line of argument, Ben Smith of the website BuzzFeed suggests that the controversy over &quot;Dreams From My Father&quot; is the fault of conservatives who have &quot;taken the self-portrait at face value.&quot; We are so unlettered and hicky that we think a memoir is about stuff that actually happened rather than a literary jeu d'esprit playing with nuances of notions of assumptions of preconceptions of concoctions of invented baloney. And so we regard the first member of the Invented-American community to make it to the White House as a kinda weird development rather than an encouraging sign of how a new post-racial, post-gender, post-modern America is moving beyond the old straitjackets of black and white, male and female, gay and straight, real and hallucinatory. </p> <p>The question now is whether the United States itself is merely the latest chapter of Obama's fake memoir. You'll notice that, in the examples listed above, the invention only goes one way. No Cherokee orphan, Holocaust survivor or recovering drug addict pretends to be George Wallace's speechwriter. Instead, the beneficiaries of boring middle-class Western life seek to appropriate the narratives and thereby enjoy the electric frisson of fashionable victim groups. And so it goes with public policy in the West at twilight. </p> <p>Thus, Obama's executive order on immigration exempting a million people from the laws of the United States, is patently unconstitutional, but that's not how an NPR listener looks at it: To him, Obama's unilateral amnesty enriches stultifying white-bread America with a million plucky little Rigoberta Menchus and their heartbreaking stories. Eric Holder's entire tenure as attorney general is a fake memoir all by itself, and his invocation of &quot;executive privilege&quot; in the Fast &amp; Furious scandal is preposterous, but American liberals can't hear: Insofar as they know anything about Fast &amp; Furious, it's something to do with the government tracking the guns of fellows like those Alabama &quot;Segregation Forever&quot; nuts, rather than a means by which hundreds of innocent Rigoberta Menchus south of the border were gunned down with weapons sold to their killers by liberal policy-makers of the Obama administration. If that's the alternative narrative, they'll take the fake memoir. </p> <p>Similarly, Obamacare is apparently all about the repressed patriarchal white male waging his &quot;war on women.&quot; The women are struggling 30-year-old Georgetown Law coeds whose starting salary after graduation is 140 grand a year, but let's not get hung up on details. Dodd-Frank financial reform, also awaiting Supreme Court judgment, is another unconstitutional power grab, but its designated villains are mustache-twirling top-hatted bankers, so, likewise, who cares? </p> <p>One can understand why the beneficiaries of the postwar West's expansion of middle-class prosperity would rather pass themselves off as members of way-cooler victim groups: it's a great career move. It may even have potential beyond the page: See Sandra Fluke's dazzling pre-Broadway tryout of &quot;Fake Memoir: The High School Musical,&quot; in which a 30-year-old Georgetown Law coed whose starting salary after graduation is 140 grand a year passes herself off as the Little Rigoberta Hussein Wilkomirski of the Rite-Aid pick-up line. But transforming an entire nation into a fake memoir is unlikely to prove half so lucrative. The heartwarming immigrants, the contraceptive-less coeds, the mustache-twirling bankers all provide cover for a far less appealing narrative: an expansion of centralized power hitherto unknown to this republic. In reality, Obama's step-grandfather died falling off the chair while changing the drapes. In the fake-memoir version, Big Government's on the chair, and it's curtains for America. </p> <p>&quot;Dreams From My Father&quot; (Obama Memoir written by Bill Ayers) Will Be Featured Exhibit in Obama's 'Presidential Library' Liberal Biographer David Maraniss Found at Least '38 Falsehoods' in Obama Memoir — But Downplays Lies as 'Literature' By John Nolte -- As I wrote yesterday, the media loves being lied to by Barack Obama.

This, ironically, Maraniss confirms in &quot;Barack Obama: The Story&quot; ($17.98), a book that has to be parsed as carefully as the Talmud or Finnegan's Wake to be made sense of. Despite his slam on birthers, the facts herein will come as more of a shock to the Obama faithful than to those who have questioned the official birth narrative. &quot;In the college life of Barack Obama Senior] in 1961 and 1962,&quot; writes Maraniss, &quot;as recounted by his friends and acquaintances in Honolulu, there was no Ann; there was no baby.&quot; Although Maraniss talked to many of Obama Sr.'s friends, none of the credible ones ever so much as saw him with Obama's mother, Ann Dunham. One Obama friend, a Cambodian named Kiri Tith, knew the senior Obama &quot;very well.&quot; He had also met Ann through a different channel. &quot;But he had no idea,&quot; writes Maraniss, &quot;that Ann knew Obama, let alone got hapai (pregnant) by him, married him, and had a son with him.&quot; Having established the facts, Maraniss turns protective. He refuses to explore the implications of his own reporting. The most consequential is that Obama grounded his 2008 campaign -- his very persona, for that matter -- on a family story that was pure fraud. Lyndon Johnson's masterful biographer, Robert Caro, would never let his subject walk away from such a lie unscathed. The casual reader of the Maraniss book is left with the impression that Ann and Obama had a one-night stand that they both regretted, but that they consented to marriage because that is what people did back in 1961. The more informed reader wonders whether Barack Obama, Sr. was fronting for the real father, the best candidate being Obama's future mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. Maraniss opens the door on both possibilities but fails to even peek through. As to the presumed February 1961 wedding, the usually thorough Maraniss offers no detail at all. His endnotes say only this: &quot;Marriage facts recorded in divorce records.&quot; To be sure, Ann and Obama claimed a wedding. It suited both their purposes: Obama to extend his visa, and Dunham to legitimize her baby with a black husband. As to the divorce, Dunham at the time was desperately trying to keep her future husband Lolo Soetoro in the country. The INS believed her to be married to Obama. Even if she were not married, a divorce would have been useful to clear the way for a marriage to Soetoro. Maraniss explains none of this. Like all other mainstream biographers of the Obama family, Maraniss tells us not a single word about Ann's life in the six months between the February wedding and Obama's August 1961 birth. Given the controversy surrounding Obama's place of birth, Maraniss should have commented on a void of this duration, and he knows it. Later, when discussing Obama's murky New York years, he opines, &quot;Nothing is so tempting for conspiracy theorists as what appears to be a hole in a life.&quot; Maraniss attempts to flesh out the New York years. He makes no effort to fill this critical hole in Ann's life. On the subject of the birth, the usually voluble Maraniss is as tight-lipped as he is on the wedding. He reports that Obama was born at 7:24 in the evening of August 4, 1961 at Kapi'olani Hospital. As reference, he cites &quot;State of Hawaii Certificate of Live Birth,&quot; presumably the unverified document posted online last April. In the way of confirmation, Maraniss offers only one story -- an elaborate one that he takes two pages to tell. It comes down to this: a woman is having lunch shortly after Obama's birth with an OB/GYN, who tells her, &quot;Stanley had a baby. Now that's something to write home about.&quot; The woman, Barbara Czurles-Nelson, has been telling this story for several years. Maraniss adds the clarification that the doctor in question was not the one who delivered the baby, as first reported, but someone who had heard the &quot;Stanley&quot; anecdote on the grapevine. One serious flaw in Maraniss's reporting is that he gives too much credence to obviously inflated memories. A glaring example, one that has been cited often as fact, is of the paper Obama allegedly wrote as a schoolboy in Indonesia in which he said, &quot;Someday I want to be president.&quot; Maraniss quotes the entire, seemingly impressive paper, both in English and in the Indonesian language, Bahasa. He then adds, &quot;The paper no longer exists, though the teacher's] memory is precise and there is no reason not to trust it.&quot; No, David, there is every reason not to trust it. Czurles-Nelson also remembers her story much too well. In the gratuitously lengthy account of the &quot;Stanley&quot; anecdote, the reader learns, for instance, that 50 years earlier, Czurles-Nelson and the doctor were sitting &quot;near the lunch buffet.&quot; This is the kind of confirming detail Maraniss likes to provide. All the stranger, then, is his failure to provide a single shred of information regarding the circumstances surrounding Obama's birth. The reader has no idea who took Ann to the hospital, who delivered her baby, who took her home, or even where &quot;home&quot; was. Maraniss hints at where home was not -- namely, the residence her parents shared with the Pratt family at 6085 Kalanianole Highway, the address listed on the birth certificate. As Maraniss relates, the Pratt daughter, then an adolescent, &quot;has no memory of the Dunhams' daughter bringing an infant home.&quot; He adds, &quot; Ann] and Obama and the infant never lived at 6085 Kalanianole].&quot; Indeed, the young family never lived together, and this Maraniss concedes. &quot;Within a month of the day Barry came home from the hospital,&quot; he writes, &quot;he and his mother were long gone from Honolulu, back on the mainland ... .&quot; They had decamped for Seattle, where they would live for the next year. Maraniss interviewed not a single person who saw the newborn in Hawaii. It is likely that Obama Sr. never saw young Barry. Barry Obama's first sighting was in Seattle. Maraniss tells us nothing about how Ann and the baby got there. In the blogosphere, these revelations do not comes as news. In the mainstream media, however, they must stun. In their respective biographies of Obama and his family, all published 2010 or later, the New Yorker's David Remnick, the Boston Globe's Sally Jacobs, and the New York Times's Janny Scott and Jodi Kantor each consciously skirted the facts to sustain the illusion of a functioning Obama family. More troubling, conservative writer Dinesh D'Souza did the same in his disingenuous 2010 bestseller, The Roots of Obama's Rage. As recently as Father's Day 2012, Obama was telling America's schoolchildren that his father &quot;left when I was two years old.&quot; The media let him get away with it. Is it any wonder that birthers don't take their criticisms too seriously? Maraniss debunks this fraudulent birth narrative much too quietly. Perhaps he feels guilty about contributing to it himself. He wrote a 10,000-word Obama bio for the Washington Post in August 2008, and he made a total botch out of the birth narrative. Had he gotten the story straight then, he might have turned the election. </p> <p>Author David Maraniss Distraught Conservatives Are Pointing Out Obama's Lies By Randy Hall -- Liberal historian and Barack Obama biographer David Maraniss is almost beside himself that people everywhere are talking about his new book Barack Obama: The Story. While most authors would be overjoyed at the amount of free publicity that Maraniss is receiving, the veteran author is almost distraught that conservatives are talking about the book in a way he didn't intend--to debunk many of the lies and half-truths that President Obama told about his young adulthood in his autobiography, Dreams From My Father. As conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh noted during his radio program on Wednesday, Maraniss is “in crisis” because “the right wing” is using his book to point out “all the things in Obama's autobiography which are not true.” Limbaugh stated that Maraniss is “vetting Obama and doesn't realize it” by “documenting lies and falsehoods, and as far he's concerned, all he's doing is getting the record straight” by “poking holes” in information from the president's book, &quot;Dreams From My Father.&quot; The radio host turned to comments the author made during that morning's Starting Point, a CNN program hosted by Soledad O'Brien: I don't know what's happening here. The right wing has taken my book. I'm not a fact-checker here, I'm a historian. I'm just helping get the record straight. Limbaugh stated that the tumult over the 641-page book by Maraniss is causing such trouble because “what he's doing is demonstrating that nobody questioned anything in Obama's books.” Maraniss continued that challenging the incidents and people listed in the president's autobiography is “not the point of my book. I'm not writing it as a fact-checker. I'm writing it as a historian.” Referring to &quot;Dreams From My Father,&quot; Maraniss indicated that “a memoir is far different from rigorous factual biography. It's not as though I'm trying to say, &quot;Ah-ha, I got you,&quot; on each point. It's just I'm trying to present the way I really found it, which is in many cases different from what he presented. But the author noted that he almost didn't write the book because he feared that the “right wing” would dismiss the book while “cherry-picking every single negative thing in it to use against Obama.” Limbaugh responded that the book “was supposed to be a campaign valentine” for the president, but instead, it has led to people asking where the press was when they should have been vetting Obama during the 2008 presidential election. While acknowledging there are discrepancies between what really happened and the way the president presented it, Maraniss tried to defend Obama's memoir by stating: He wrote it when he was in his thirties before he was running for president. He had no clue that people like me would be coming along later and trying to tell the real story. Stating he was “incredulous over this,” Limbaugh indicated that in his autobiography, Obama stated that his grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, was taken prisoner and tortured by the British during the Mau Mau rebellion. “It didn't happen,” Limbaugh said, noting that was one of many lies in Obama's autobiography pointed out by Buzzfeed: Also, Regina, a friend at Occidental who Obama writes about as a symbol of the authentic African-American experience, turns out to be based on Carolina Boss, who is white. Regina was the name of her Swiss grandmother. In addition, Obama's description of his friends as “an alienated ne'er-do-well 'club of dsaffection,'” were actually “decent students and athletes who went on to successful careers,&quot; Limbaugh noted. And perhaps the most surprising information Maraniss learned was the fact that the president's mother left his father, not the other way around. When you get into all these things in detail, what becomes obv ious is that all of these lies and composites and whatever other techniques that one uses in memoir now have been created to make Obama out to be a victim. He's a victim of an unstable family. He's a victim of a white-oriented basketball coach. He's a victim of the Brits who put his grandfather in jail and tortured him. He's a victim here and a victim there. As a result of the controversy caused by the book by Maraniss, the upcoming Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, the scandal over the Fast and Furious gun-running program, and several other problems, Limbaugh concluded that “the bad week of Barack Obama has morphed into a bad two weeks and looking now to be a bad month.” </p> <p>Is Obama an Even Greater Pathological Liar Than the Rest of the Democrats? THE OBAMA RECORD: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he's been caught lying about family racism. In &quot;Dreams from My Father,&quot; his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather's imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden &quot;old man.&quot; In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss, who traveled to Kenya to investigate the tale. His grandfather was not detained or beaten by his &quot;white rulers,&quot; as Obama, writing as a 34-year-old lawyer, claimed. This is only the latest example of a growing body of fabrications, embellishments and outright lies told by this president, who has a real and possibly pathological problem with the truth. Stacked up, his whoppers would make even Bill Clinton blush. Here's a sampling: </p> <p>Lie No. 1: Obama has repeatedly claimed his white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, &quot;fought in Patton's army,&quot; when he was a clerk with no combat in WWII. Lie No. 2: Obama claimed Dunham, a communist sympathizer, signed up for duty &quot;the day after Pearl Harbor,&quot; when in fact he waited six months. Lie No. 3: Obama claimed his father &quot;fought when he got back to Kenya against tribalism and nepotism, but ultimately was blackballed from the government,&quot; when in fact he fought against capitalism and lost his job when he advocated communism. Lie No. 4: Obama has claimed his late mother's health insurer refused &quot;to pay for her treatment&quot; for cancer while citing a &quot;pre-existing condition,&quot; when Cigna paid all her hospital bills and never denied payment. Lie No. 5: Obama claimed he and a black high school friend named &quot;Ray&quot; were ostracized in Honolulu, when in fact the friend, Keith Kakugawa, was half-Japanese, and neither of them experienced discrimination. Lie No. 6: Obama claimed the father of his Indonesian stepfather was killed by Dutch soldiers while fighting for Indonesian independence, when in fact the story turns out to be &quot;a concocted myth in almost all respects,&quot; Maraniss found. Lie No. 7: Obama claimed his parents decided to marry in the excitement of the Selma civil-rights march of 1965 — and that he personally has &quot;a claim on Selma&quot; — when in fact they were married several years earlier. Lie No. 8: Obama claimed his father got to study in the U.S. thanks to JFK's efforts to bring &quot;young Africans over to America,&quot; when in fact the Kenyan airlift his father participated in occurred in 1959 under Ike. Lie No. 9: Obama submitted a phony bio to his book publicist claiming he was &quot;born in Kenya.&quot; Lie No. 10: Obama denied being a member of the socialist New Party, when a member roster of the Chicago chapter of the party lists him joining on Jan. 11, 1996. Lie No. 11: Obama claimed he had only a passing acquaintance with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, when in fact they held a fundraiser for their Hyde Park neighbor in their living room, and years later, while Obama served in the U.S. Senate, hosted a barbecue for him in their backyard. Lie No. 12: Obama claimed he never heard Rev. Jeremiah Wright spew anti-American invectives while sitting in his pews for 20 years, when in fact Obama was moved to tears hearing Wright condemn &quot;white folks&quot; and the U.S. for bombing other countries and even named his second book after the sermon. Lie No. 13: Obama claimed he got in a &quot;big fight&quot; with old white flame Genevieve Cook, who after seeing a black play asked &quot;why black people were so angry all the time,&quot; when in fact she never saw the play nor made the remark. In both his autobiographies, Obama paints a false portrait of a still-racist America and West, where he, his friends and relatives are victimized by that racism. Conveniently, his remedy is redistributive justice through bigger government. </p> <p>'Bout Time: 'Fast and Furious' (aka Obama's MurderGate) Falling Apart! By Russ Vaughn - When BATF agents first blew the whistle on what is now known as Operation Fast and Furious, the rationale offered by DoJ for such an evidently foolish operation was that it was designed to allow BATF to track and prosecute the leaders of the Mexican drug cartels. As more information surfaced from the Mexican government and the BATF's Mexican bureau chief specifying that none of them knew anything of this operation, many of us who were paying a bit closer attention to the case immediately smelled the first foul scent of corruption. The fatal flaw in DoJ's explanation was this: if the Mexican authorities had not been brought into the operation, nor even the BATF's own agents authorized to operate in Mexico, then the proffered DoJ justification made utterly no sense, for the simple reason that once those walked guns hit the south side of that border, there was absolutely no process in place to track them to their supposed targets. Therefore, DoJ was patently misrepresenting its motive. Why? For those who keep a constant wary eye on the left's never-ending war on our 2nd-Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the increasingly fishy smell emanating from Washington led to connecting the dots back to the year-earlier revelations in the liberal media that weapons being used in Mexican crimes were traceable back to American sources more than 90% of the time. That false meme had spread quickly through the major liberal media, along with calls for stricter gun control laws in this country by...guess who! How about our president, our secretary of state, our attorney general, and other notable Democrats, for starters? Here we had an operation mounted by the executive branch of the United States, an operation which had as its stated goal -- after being outed, that is -- the targeting of Mexican drug lords on sovereign Mexican soil. Yet this was done without the knowledge of anyone in the Mexican government. Quite clearly, a secret and subversive operation had been conceived and implemented against our sister nation to the south -- subversive because, again, quite clearly, the American government was subverting the sovereign authority of Mexico without that nation's knowledge. If the goal was, as stated later by DoJ, to track guns into Mexico to the purchasing sources in the cartels, then was there not some diplomatic requirement to notify the Mexican government that we were arming their most violent criminal elements? And what was the need for keeping our own BATF agents in Mexico -- the only American agents with Mexican presence to conduct such surveillance and tracking operations on Mexican soil -- equally in the dark? It doesn't require much in the way of deductive powers to conclude that the fish-wrap smell seeping out of Washington probably had to do with Eric Holder's Department of Justice being used to tightly wrap something rotting from the head down. And what could that be? Early proponents of the theory suggesting that if the DoJ's rationale smelled fishy, then perhaps the true reason for F&amp;F was to create justification for more gun control legislation here in this country were looked at as crackpot conspiracists. Even now, most of those Republican members of Congress pursuing this scandal refuse to cite the true purpose of F&amp;F, still referring to it as a bungled federal program. There are exceptions: Florida congressman John Mica speaking on one of the Sunday talk shows this weekend, made clear his opinion that F&amp;F was a sinister and cynical attempt by the Obama administration to undermine the 2nd Amendment. I watched him say it, but Google has no link. Imagine that. </p> <p>For those who haven't really followed the Fast and Furious scandal, here's a five-step summary of how the operation was supposed to work: </p> <p>(1) Allow guns to flow freely to criminal elements in Mexico, where they are naturally used in the extremely violent and deadly criminal activities of the drug cartels. (2) When sufficient guns of American origin have been used in such criminal activities, enlist the willing services of the liberal media to announce the discovery thereof to the world. (3) Enlist multiple prominent Democrats to untruthfully proclaim that 90% of the guns used in Mexican crimes originate in the U.S. (4) Use steps one through three to substantiate the liberal fallacy that private gun ownership leads to increased gun violence by gun owners. (5) With the compliance of a thoroughly duped American public, enact increasingly restrictive gun ownership policies through federal agencies, bypassing Congress and the Supreme Court. </p> <p>When looked at this way, doesn't Obama's statement to a group of gun control advocates in March 2011 that he was taking steps to further gun control restrictions, but &quot;under the radar,&quot; now seem less cryptic than it did at the time? For those who still don't believe Fast &amp; Furious was an end-run on the 2nd Amendment by a liberal, gun-averse administration, here are five questions to consider: </p> <p>(1) Could the possibility that this plan was concocted at the very top of the administration, putting it on par with Watergate, explain Eric Holder's entrenched refusal to release the tens of thousands of documents being sought by congressional investigators? (2) Is the liberal media's refusal to investigate this scandal due to the fact that they suspect that the acts of this administration may rise to criminal and impeachable offenses? (3) Has the reluctance of the Republican leadership to more aggressively support the House investigation been attributable to the same possibility -- that full exposure could lead straight to the Oval Office and the politically unsavory possibility of impeachment of the nation's first black president? (4) Does anyone really think an ambitious politician like Holder would risk career-ending contempt of Congress charges to protect some incredibly stupid subordinates who supposedly, all by themselves, planned and implemented such a boondoggle? (5) In an administration known for its quickness in throwing friends and associates under the bus in matters of self-preservation, is it not remarkable that rather than being so dispatched by Holder, many of the key players in F&amp;F have been promoted despite denials by their bureau? </p> <p>If all this sounds like a bit too much to swallow, consider the political origins of the key players in the current administration. All are products of the Chicago political machine, a thoroughly Democrat movement particularly hostile to the concept of citizen gun ownership as demonstrated by the some of the nation's most restrictive gun ownership laws being in place there. And to prove the folly of those laws and the liberal fallacy that disarming the citizenry reduces crime, here's a quite recent headline from that bastion of conservative thought and opinion, Huffington Post: &quot;Chicago Homicide Rate Worse Than Kabul, Up To 200 Police Assigned To High-Profile Wedding (Video).&quot; We are quick to blame the policies and activities of the Mexican drug cartels for their nation's murder rate being among the highest in the world. Is it not then fair to apply the same blame to those who control a city with some of the most restrictive gun ownership laws in America, which are yielding gun-death fatality stats almost double the total casualty rate for American troops in the Afghan war zone? It is the total and vise-like hold the Democrat machine has on Chicago that has made this city the riskiest place in America for law-abiding citizens, turning them into helpless, unarmed sheep at the mercy of roving, well-armed, predatory wolves. Doesn't Chicago sound a lot like Mexico to you? Never lose sight of the real reason why liberals want to confiscate your guns. Liberals assert that government is the protector of all our freedoms, and therefore we need not be concerned with protecting ourselves and our loved ones. The folly of that assertion can be refuted with one word: Chicago. But the true reason for wanting an unarmed public is because such a citizenry is powerless in the face of armed government and therefore compliant. Liberals and Democrats know full well that the key to unrestrained governing is to first disarm the citizenry. </p> <p>More Fast and Furious coverage: Documents: ATF Used &quot;Fast and Furious&quot; to Make the Case for Gun Control PICTURES: ATF &quot;Gunwalking&quot; scandal timeline Memos contradict Holder on Fast and Furious Agent: I was ordered to let guns &quot;walk&quot; into Mexico Gunwalking scandal uncovered at ATF </p> <p>Obama Asserts Executive Privilege in 'Fast and Furious' Gun-Trafficking Scandal — Joins Holder In Contemptuous Cover-up WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama asserted executive privilege for the first time Wednesday, escalating a fight with congressional Republicans over documents about a gun-trafficking probe. The White House asserted executive privilege Wednesday over some gun-trafficking-probe documents sought by congressional Republicans, throwing into uncertainty a possible vote to sanction Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt of Congress. Peter Landers has details on Lunch Break. The move threw into uncertainty a possible vote to sanction Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt of Congress. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was meeting Wednesday morning to discuss the contempt fight. The panel's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), said the committee was evaluating the White House's assertion. In a letter to Mr. Issa, Deputy Attorney General James Cole said the president had asserted the privilege to block the documents from being released, but he held out the possibility of negotiating an agreement. Sen. Charles Grassley (R., Iowa) criticized the White House. &quot;How can the president exert executive privilege over documents he's supposedly never seen?&quot; Mr. Grassley asked. White House spokesman Eric Schultz said Mr. Obama's reasoning was similar to that of former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Mr. Schultz said the other presidents &quot;protected the same category of documents we're protecting today,&quot; meaning after-the-fact internal materials. It was the first time Mr. Obama cited executive privilege, compared with six times for the younger President Bush and 14 times for Mr. Clinton during their eight-year tenures. Under the doctrine of executive privilege, presidents have sought to withhold from Congress documents relating to internal deliberations of the executive branch of government. At issue are Justice Department documents that Messrs. Issa and Grassley have sought and that the department has resisted turning over in the congressional investigation into a botched gun-trafficking probe called Fast and Furious. The department has said the documents reflected internal deliberation or were related to continuing criminal investigations and therefore weren't subject to a congressional subpoena. Messrs. Issa and Holder met Tuesday for 20 minutes. From their accounts, it has become a game of chicken, with each side insisting the other act first to resolve the standoff. Exchange of Letters On June 19, Attorney General Eric Holder wrote to President Barack Obama, calling on the president to assert executive privilege over documents in the Fast and Furious probe. On June 20, Deputy Attorney General James Cole wrote to Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to tell him that the president had asserted executive privilege. Mr. Holder said Mr. Issa rejected his offer to provide documents because the lawmaker wouldn't agree that they would fulfill a subpoena, effectively ending the contempt threat. Mr. Issa said the attorney general didn't come prepared to provide documents and that the contempt threat couldn't be removed until the documents were produced. The dispute centers on a 2009-10 operation run by Arizona-based agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, aimed at building a case against suspected smugglers of firearms to Mexico. The agents allowed suspected smugglers to buy about 2,000 firearms, without intercepting the weapons. Some have since turned up at crime scenes on both sides of the border, including at a December 2010 shootout that killed a U.S. border agent. If a majority of the committee votes for contempt Wednesday, the matter then could be taken up by the full House. If the House votes in favor, then a contempt citation could be referred to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, an appointee of President Barack Obama who is in Mr. Holder's chain of command. And then things would become legally more uncertain. It isn't clear if Congress can compel an executive-branch official to prosecute the attorney general. In the Bush administration, the House voted to hold White House officials in contempt in a similar documents dispute and the Bush-appointed attorney general ordered the U.S. attorney to disregard it. The matter was eventually settled with the production of documents before a civil-court battle ran its course. The Justice Department has turned over thousands of documents—about 7,000 or 8,000, depending on which side is counting—and says it is being forthcoming. By comparison, the inspector general has had access to about 80,000 documents, including those the department has declined to share with lawmakers. Republican lawmakers say the documents sought would reveal whether high-level officials were aware of the Fast and Furious tactics, known as gun-walking. They say the documents would also show how the department came to mislead lawmakers in early 2011 when it denied the tactics were used. The Justice Department later withdrew the statement, saying it relied on incorrect information from lower-level officials at the ATF. The matter has become a political fight, with little real impact on Mr. Holder, who is expected to serve out his tenure through the end of the current administration in January. Democrats accuse Republicans of using the contempt measure as a political tool against Mr. Holder and the president. Democrats did some of the same against President George W. Bush's attorney general, Alberto Gonzales, who resigned under pressure in a controversy over the firings of U.S. attorneys. Tuesday's 20-minute meeting, which included Mr. Grassley and Mr. Cole, along with top Democrats on the House and Senate judiciary committees, represented progress in a fight between two sides that have largely communicated via combative letters in recent weeks. Mr. Holder emerged saying he was prepared to offer documents proving that he didn't know about the Fast and Furious tactics before they became public and that the department didn't intentionally mislead congress. &quot;I think the ball's in their court. They rejected what I thought was an extraordinary offer on our part,&quot; he said. Other people familiar with the meeting said Mr. Holder threatened that if he was held in contempt, he wouldn't turn over documents. Mr. Issa refused to end his probe without first seeing if the documents produced would answer his questions. Some Democrats fear that Mr. Issa and Republicans will simply &quot;move the goal posts&quot; if the Justice Department produces the documents requested, perhaps setting up another conflict, according to people familiar with the matter. Mr. Grassley said Tuesday night: &quot;The attorney general wants to trade a briefing and the promise of delivering some small, unspecified set of documents tomorrow for a free pass today. He wants to turn over only what he wants to turn over and not give us any information about what he's not turning over. That's unacceptable. I'm not going to buy a pig in a poke. Chairman Issa is right to move forward to seek answers about a disastrous government operation.&quot; Revealed: Photo of Obama's Pot-Smoking 'Choom Gang' </p> <p>They were jokers, smokers and midnight butt-pokers Mind if I Bogart this joint my friend. </p> <p>A Rare Glimpse of Obama During His 'Drug Addled' Years On CSPAN's Book TV Sunday, David Maraniss revealed a photo of Obama's pot smoking 'Choom Gang' and shared some of the information he learned about while writing his book. &quot;The Choom Gang, that's what they did,&quot; Marannis said, revealing the photo and talking about the gang's practice of &quot;total absorption&quot; of marijuana smoke while sitting in a car. &quot;That was part of his existence during that period.&quot; VIEW David Maraniss interview on C-SPAN Over the past 4 years, author David Maraniss has been researching and writing his tenth book, &quot;Barack Obama; The Story&quot;. For this project, the Washington Post associate editor and Pulitzer prize-winner traveled across the world including to Kansas, Indonesia, Kenya, Los Angeles, Hawaii, New York, and Chicago. David Maraniss spoke with relatives of President Obama in Kenya and discovered the President’s African ancestral history on the shores of Lake Victoria. He toured the houses where young Barry Obama lived in Indonesia and found the Kansas family homes and sites where his mother’s family began. The discussion includes exclusive video and pictures from Kenya, Indonesia, Kansas and Hawaii.

($17.98) </p> <p>Top Cop's Corrupt Agenda and Why He's a 'Wanted Man' By Arnold Ahlert -- On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it was filing a lawsuit against Florida over the state’s push to clean its voter roles of dead and foreign voters. The move comes on the heels of Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, scheduling a vote by his panel on June 20th aimed at holding U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents in the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal. While the corrupt practices of Holder’s DOJ may finally be getting the attention they deserve, it is also becoming apparent that the department is not just degrading the principles of law and order to advance a radical leftist agenda — but to enhance president’s Obama’s re-election chances by any means necessary. The DOJ’s lawsuit against Florida is little more than the latest evidence of the highly politicized nature of the department and the man at its helm. As mentioned above, the state has been singled out for attempting to purge its voter rolls of non-citizens. Yet as testimony by former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams to the House of Representatives revealed, the department has taken exactly the opposite approach with other states, “deliberately refusing to enforce Section 8 and require states to purge rolls because of philosophical disagreement with the purging statute.” </p> <p>Obama's Politics Are More Insidious Than Socialism Obama Wants to Control the Economy While Making Sure Business Is Blamed for Any Failures </p> <p>By Thomas Sowell -- It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a &quot;socialist.&quot; He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism. What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector. Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama's point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time. Government ownership of the means of production means that politicians also own the consequences of their policies, and have to face responsibility when those consequences are disastrous — something that Barack Obama avoids like the plague. </p> <p>These Soulless Eyes May Be Watching You!! </p> <p>Obama Regime's 'Data Mining Reaches Far Beyond Anything Politics Has Ever Seen' </p> <p>CHICAGO — On the sixth floor of a sleek office building here, more than 150 techies are quietly peeling back the layers of your life. They know what you read and where you shop, what kind of work you do and who you count as friends. They also know who your mother voted for in the last election. The depth and breadth of the Obama campaign’s 2012 digital operation — from data mining to online organizing — reaches so far beyond anything politics has ever seen, experts maintain, that it could impact the outcome of a close presidential election. It makes the president’s much-heralded 2008 social media juggernaut — which raised half billion dollars and revolutionized politics — look like cavemen with stone tablets. Mitt Romney indeed is ramping up his digital effort after a debilitating primary and, for sure, the notion that Democrats have a monopoly on cutting edge technology no longer holds water. But it’s also not at all clear that Romney can come close to achieving the same level of technological sophistication and reach as his opponent.

His resistance to an independent investigation will only make things worse for him. The Obama White House is leaking like a sieve. Trying to cover it up will only make the scandal bigger. On Friday, Mr. Obama took the charges of selective leaks head-on: &quot;The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national-security information is offensive,&quot; he said. &quot;It's wrong, and people I think need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me here approach this office.&quot; His protestations carry little credibility. </p> <p>BOOK: The Great Destroyer, Barack Obama’s War on the Republic David Limbaugh's Obamapedia: 150 Reasons Prez Must Be Ousted </p> <p>By Paul Bedard - Worried that GOP voter apathy and complacency driven by a view that President Obama hasn’t done much in office is sparking an urgent drive among conservative activists to wake voters up to policies they claim the West Wing is using to assault traditional values and the economy. “We are finally getting the picture of unbridled liberalism,” warned author David Limbaugh. Limbaugh, brother of Rush and a New York Times bestseller, is driving the effort to remind Americans of the moves Obama’s team has taken to push their agenda. His new book, “The Great Destroyer, Barack Obama’s War on the Republic,” released June 4th, is a 150-point list of reasons--from Obamacare to Fast &amp; Furious to logging historic time on the golf course--Limbaugh says the president must go. “I’m trying to raise public awareness and urgency to fight the complacency and apathy that he hasn’t done anything,” said Limbaugh, a Missouri lawyer. “I just don’t understand why people say they like him. ”In beginning his book promotion, Limbaugh spoke first to Secrets. He said that in considering the new book, he figured to list the issues conservatives don’t like about Obama, with a focus on policies and the economy. He then expanded it to include social issues, such as abortion initiatives, and even traits that irk some voters, such as the time the president spends on the golf course or on vacation. “When I reread what I had written, I was shocked,” said Limbaugh. Most know the headlines: Obamacare. Solyndra, Fast &amp; Furious, auto bailout, stimulus, unemployment, defense cuts, regulation. But Limbaugh also criticized Obama’s approach. He said that the administration has a “self-righteous and arrogant attitude” and, when criticized, either barks at the critics or sometimes yells racism. The president’s aides have heard these criticisms before and argue that Obama arrived in the White House with an agenda to stimulate a dying economy and reform health care, two major issues they said he succeeded with. Voting for Mitt Romney, they add, will only return the nation back to the disaster economy Obama was handed in 2009. But Limbaugh said that Obama’s first four years are just a down payment on the next four if he is reelected. “We’re on autopilot to bankruptcy and I’m trying to alert people with plain data,” said Limbaugh. “You have to wonder what Obama’s end game is.” He concludes by suggesting that Obama’s personal popularity won’t be enough to win him reelection. He also calls on conservatives to vote out Senate Democrats. “It is still not too late to save America and restore her to a path of greatness, of robust liberty, and of economic prosperity. But I fear it is not hyperbole to suggest that it very well may be too late if we don’t end this madness in November by voting Barack Obama out of office,” he wrote.

I firmly believe that Obama is heading this nation toward financial catastrophe, is greatly undermining our national defenses, the Constitution and the rule of law, is severely damaging our energy industry and our energy independence, is dangerously expanding government and smothering the private sector and small and large businesses, and is polarizing this nation in a way that we haven't seen in many decades, along racial, gender and economic lines. In wholesale breach of his 2008 campaign themes, he is zapping America of its optimism and hope, replacing those with despair and malaise. He is using his bully pulpit to turn the American dream on its head, demonizing success and glorifying government dependency. Rep. Paul Ryan has been warning for several years that America is in deep financial trouble, primarily because of our runaway entitlements, which account for almost $100 trillion of unfunded liabilities. Experts whom he has consulted warn that we can't indefinitely defer this problem, that we have a window of perhaps two or three years to restructure them and return to a path of solvency. You should notice that no one has really disputed Ryan's assertion, suggesting it is hyperbole or sensationalism. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Office of Management and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients have had their chance, in congressional testimony, to refute Ryan's claims. But they can't — and don't. Yet what do they and the president they serve do about this imminent national train wreck? Absolutely nothing. President Obama's Democratic majority in the Senate has not submitted a budget for well over 1,100 days. Obama has offered no plan to restructure entitlements and has even rejected his own cynically formed bipartisan deficit commission. When Ryan questioned Geithner about Obama's budget — for both its one-year and its 10-year projections — Ryan extracted an admission from Geithner that the administration has presented no plan beyond 10 years. Its current plan is merely to stabilize the growth of the deficit and kick the long-term problem down the road. In my book, I include the pertinent exchange between Ryan and Geithner, and Ryan is persistent in pointing out that even if Obama's budget purports to put a temporary bandage on the growth of the deficit, the deficit begins to skyrocket again after 10 years. Geithner admits that and simply says that the administration doesn't like Ryan's plan because it is too hard on middle-income earners and seniors. The administration continues to say Ryan's plan would destroy Medicare. These are all lies. Ryan's plan specifically would preserve Medicare while bringing it into solvency. He especially and expressly protects seniors, and his plan would help lower- and middle-income groups more than it would higher-income earners. If Obama and Geithner don't like Ryan's plan, then why haven't they ever offered their own blueprint for restructuring entitlements, which is imperative if we are to save this nation from bankruptcy. The dirty little secret — and it's not really a secret — is that Obama's budget doesn't put a bandage on spending the next 10 years, either. He told us he wouldn't add a dime to the national debt, but his own projections show he will add more than $7 trillion over the next decade, and the Congressional Budget Office scores it as closer to $9.5 trillion, which means his deficits will average almost $1 trillion per year — during the period he and Geithner claim they are stabilizing our national finances. Can you believe this? In the book, I also go into great detail about how Obama is fundamentally changing our national defenses and readiness, how we are downscaling our conventional and nuclear forces while other nations — especially Russia and China — are ramping theirs up and terrorists and the rogue nations they support are feverishly pursuing weapons of mass destruction. I can't begin to adequately describe my new book in a column, but it suffices to say that it is an encyclopedic account of Obama's war on America that includes some 400 pages and 1,300 footnotes. My goal was to leave no stone unturned in thoroughly and comprehensively documenting Obama's abuses and misdeeds. The book covers the gamut, including Obama's wars on our economy, national defenses, values, religious liberty, businesses and guns. You may think you know almost everything Obama has done the past few years, but I guarantee you that the cumulative force of his actions related in my book will nevertheless astound you and most likely make your blood boil. My hope is that in some way, this book contributes to an awareness in the electorate of just how important it is that we defeat this man in November. Our nation's future greatness and our children's future depend on it. </p> <p>Obama's &quot;Thingamajig&quot; Dumb Remark Becomes the Latest Twitter Hashtag of Ridicule </p> <p>Transforming America, One Thingamajig At A Time — Today’s Four Words: thing, a, ma, jig </p> <p>HELL DAY - Unemployment Up, DOW Drops 275: And May auto sales were disappointing (and don’t even get me started on the $1 billion green car fiasco). The only thing on the upswing was Obama's fundraising. And thank goodness, we conveniently had an economic speech scheduled in Minnesota yesterday so the fundraisers were right on the way. Plus the Honeywell speech gave BO the opportunity to take to the teleprompter to explain exactly who’s responsible for this ongoing mess that Bush got us into: Europe, clouds, and, of course, the do-nothing thingamajig. Looks like the stress of the thingamajig is starting to get to Obama . . . Urging Congress to pass his economic measures in the wake of a disappointing jobs report, Mr. Obama told employees of Honeywell in Golden Valley, Minn., that with extra cash from a refinancing plan, some homeowner might “be replacing some thingamajig for their furnace.” So come on, you laggards! Get your butts out there and buy some thingamajigs! (no, wait… “thingamaJ-I-G-S” !?! – can he say that? Doesn’t that seem sort of…racist?)

Thiessen - Despite a growing backlash from his fellow Democrats, President Obama has doubled down on his attacks on Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital. But the strategy could backfire in ways Obama did not anticipate. After all, if Romney’s record in private equity is fair game, then so is Obama’s record in public equity — and that record is not pretty. Since taking office, Obama has invested billions of taxpayer dollars in private businesses, including as part of his stimulus spending bill. Many of those investments have turned out to be unmitigated disasters — leaving in their wake bankruptcies, layoffs, criminal investigations and taxpayers on the hook for billions. Consider just a few examples of Obama’s public equity failures: </p> <p>&#9679; Raser Technologies: In 2010, the Obama administration gave Raser a $33 million taxpayer-funded grant to build a power plant in Beaver Creek, Utah. According to the Wall Street Journal, after burning through our tax dollars, the company filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012. The plant now has fewer than 10 employees, and Raser owes $1.5 million in back taxes. &#9679; ECOtality: The Obama administration gave ECOtality $126.2 million in taxpayer money in 2009 for, among other things, the installation of 14,000 electric car chargers in five states. Obama even hosted the company’s president, Don Karner, in the first lady’s box during the 2010 State of the Union address as an example of a stimulus success story. According to ECOtality’s own SEC filings, the company has since incurred more than $45 million in losses and has told the federal government, “We may not achieve or sustain profitability on a quarterly or annual basis in the future.” Worse, according to CBS News the company is “under investigation for insider trading,” and Karner has been subpoenaed “for any and all documentation surrounding the public announcement of the first Department of Energy grant to the company.” &#9679; Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP): The Obama administration gave NGP a $98.5 million taxpayer loan guarantee in 2010. The New York Times reported last October that the company is in “financial turmoil” and that “ a]fter a series of technical missteps that are draining Nevada Geothermal’s cash reserves, its own auditor concluded in a filing released last week that there was ‘significant doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.’&#8201;” &#9679; First Solar: The Obama administration provided First Solar with more than $3 billion in loan guarantees for power plants in Arizona and California. According to a Bloomberg Businessweek report last week, the company “fell to a record low in Nasdaq Stock Market trading May 4 after reporting $401 million in restructuring costs tied to firing 30 percent of its workforce.” &#9679; Abound Solar, Inc: The Obama administration gave Abound Solar a $400 million loan guarantee to build photovoltaic panel factories. According to Forbes, in February the company halted production and laid off 180 employees. &#9679; Beacon Power: The Obama administration gave Beacon — a green-energy storage company — a $43 million loan guarantee. According to CBS News, at the time of the loan, “Standard and Poor’s had confidentially given the project a dismal outlook of ‘CCC-plus.’ ” In the fall of 2011, Beacon received a delisting notice from Nasdaq and filed for bankruptcy. This is just the tip of the iceberg. </p> <p>A company called SunPower got a $1.2 billion loan guarantee from the Obama administration, and as of January, the company owed more than it was worth. Brightsource got a $1.6 billion loan guarantee and posted a string of net losses totaling $177 million. And, of course, let’s not forget Solyndra — the solar panel manufacturer that received $535 million in taxpayer-funded loan guarantees and went bankrupt, leaving taxpayers on the hook. Amazingly, Obama has declared that all the projects received funding “based solely on their merits.” But as Hoover Institution scholar Peter Schweizer reported in his book, Throw Them All Out, fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to “individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.” Collectively, these Obama cronies raised $457,834 for his campaign, and they were in turn approved for grants or loans of nearly $11.35 billion. Obama said this week it’s not the president’s job “to make a lot of money for investors.” Well, he sure seems to have made a lot of (taxpayer) money for investors in his political machine. All that cronyism and corruption is catching up with the administration. According to Politico, “The Energy Department’s inspector general has launched more than 100 criminal investigations” related to the department’s green-energy programs. Now the man who made Solyndra a household name says Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital “is what this campaign is going to be about.” Good luck with that, Mr. President. If Obama wants to attack Romney’s alleged private equity failures as chief executive of Bain, he’d better be ready to defend his own massive public equity failures as chief executive of the United States. </p> <p>Obama's 'Constitutional Ineligibility Problems' in a Nutshell </p> <p>The Major Problems Obama Faces with the Eligibility Test Are as Follows: </p> <p>&#9658; His certificate of live birth from Hawaii claims a father who was a visiting African student and a mother of insufficient age to confer “natural born citizenship” upon their son. This would make Obama, at best, a dual citizen at birth, not what the founders had in mind when they used the term “natural born citizen.” Obama himself has acknowledged he was born a “dual citizen.” &#9658; Hawaii has a long history of registering births in the state that actually took place outside the country. &#9658; Obama himself has offered different stories about his birthplace. For at least 16 years, he claimed to have been “Kenyan-born” – right up until 2007! &#9658; Michelle Obama referred to Kenya as her husband’s “homeland.” &#9658; Obama was adopted by an Indonesian stepfather and registered as an Indonesia citizen as a child. &#9658; Obama’s mother was warned by U.S. immigration authorities upon moving to Indonesia to take certain precautions if she wanted to protect her son’s U.S. citizenship (as opposed to “natural born” citizenship). These included homeschooling him and teaching him American history, rather than enrolling him in an Indonesian school. Nevertheless, Obama was enrolled in an Indonesian school as an Indonesian citizen. &#9658; Obama and his family gave conflicting accounts of the hospital in which he was born – and these were widely reported in the press. No hospital in Hawaii has ever formally or officially claimed the first black president as one of their own. &#9658; The long-form birth certificate released by Obama last year, following three years of pressure, has been deemed a forgery by dozens of document experts, as it has been by the only law enforcement investigation to examine it in Arizona. I could go on with much more evidence of Obama’s “natural born citizenship” problems, but this should more than suffice for anyone of sound mind to investigate or, at least, think about. h/t Joseph Farah </p> <p>UPDATE: Paranoia? Birth-certificate 'Surprise' in October? — Hawaii Source Claims Forgery of 'Original' Using 1961 Materials He who laughs last, laughs the loudest. </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi - An intelligence source in Hawaii who warned early last year that a forged Obama birth record would be released now says that amid continued doubts about the authenticity of the document posted on the White House website, a forged “original” birth certificate intended to pass forensic inspection by using 1961 materials is being prepared and could be released as an “October surprise.” The source, who has contact with Hawaii government officials, was questioned by Mike Zullo, the head of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse team. Zullo recently returned from a trip to Hawaii to follow up on leads in the posse’s investigation of Obama’s eligibility for the 2012 election ballot in Arizona. Arpaio announced March 1 that his team found probable cause that the document posted by the White House April 27, 2011, is a forgery. Zullo told WND today that regardless of whether the Hawaii source’s information pans out, he wants to see the original microfilm record of Obama’s birth. “If they decide to try to produce a document, we’re going to be skeptical,” he said. “We’ve been calling for the microfilm from the beginning.” Arpaio has said he wants to see the entire roll of microfilm that contains Obama’s birth record and submit it to court-certified forensic examiners to determine its authenticity. The Hawaii source said ink and paper from 1961 have been secured to create an “original” document that would correspond with the digital copy posted on the White House website. As WND reported one year ago, radical supporters of Barack Obama have openly admitted their role in the forging of a Kenyan Obama birth certificate. The White House released a purported copy of Obama’s long-form birth certificate shortly after the Drudge Report prominently leaked details of WND Book’s then-upcoming expose “Where’s the Birth Certificate.” WND reported yesterday that a letter from Hawaii’s Department of Health last week verifying Obama’s birth in Honolulu has actually opened the door to “shocking revelations” the posse is promising to disclose. Zullo has said the sheriff plans to schedule a press conference “at the earliest possible date in June.” </p> <p>Posse in Hawaii: 'Shocking' News Coming — Investigator Mike Zullo Says State's Letter on Obama's Birth 'Opened Door' to New Revelations Arpaio’s Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo </p> <p>A letter from Hawaii’s Department of Health verifying Barack Obama’s birth in Honolulu has not only not stopped Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse work on the island, his lead investigator reports it has actually “opened the door” to some “shocking revelations” the posse is promising to disclose. Among the details leaked early by Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo: There are allegedly several stamps bearing Registrar Alvin Onaka’s name “floating around” inside the Hawaii Department of Health. Zullo was interviewed via telephone from Hawaii by Tea Party Power Hour host Mark Gillar to discuss, among other things, a letter stamped with Onaka’s name and sent to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett as verification of Obama’s Hawaiian birth. But Zullo – who met with Hawaii Department of Health officials in Honolulu the day before the letter to Bennett was issued – said the verification did deter the investigation briefly, but “actually, what looked like it was going to be almost like a deal killer, in a sense opened the door up to a greater avenue of investigational material. “There is a lot that has been uncovered as a result of it,” he said. “I can’t disclose to you what we’ve discovered, but it’s going to be a shocking revelation at our press conference,” Zullo promised. Zullo affirmed the posse’s intention to release their findings publicly within the next few weeks. Zullo also affirmed that the investigators have reservations about the verification letter that was sent to Bennett, particularly as it fails to list Obama’s birth date and as it’s merely stamped with the registrar’s name, while another set of initials – not Registrar Alvin Onaka’s – appears next to the signature. “Either they are so inept in taking care of vital statistics here, or this cover-up is bigger than anyone could have imagined,” Zullo told Gillar. “When you have the individual who is solely responsible and has the authority to validate any document of this sort and he doesn’t, that’s a problem. … And we do understand that there are a number of these stamps floating around inside the Department of Health.” “From what you’re telling me,” Gillar said, “it sounds like the next press conference is going to be even more amazing than the last press conference back on March 1st.” “It will be,” Zullo responded. “The information … is going to be breathtaking when it’s released.” Video of the Mike Zullo interview can be seen HERE </p> <p>Anyone — Including “Conservative Commenters,” Who Is Not a “Birther” Is a Fool, a Liar, a Coward or All Three By Kevin “Coach” Collins - After seeing the mountain of evidence on the subject it is very clear that Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii and is a fake. Did you hear that snarky media people? Nobody over ten believes this phony twerp was born in Hawaii. Those who publicly say they believe Obama’s birth certificate and biography are real are simpletons who are hoping to have the liberal alligator eat someone else first. Their cowardice doesn’t make them people bad people, but their snarky swipes at those of us who understand that two and two has always been four and will never change makes them despicable. The truth is staring all of us in the face and those who pretend to “take the president at his word”, regardless of their political allegiance, are way passed annoying. They are insulting to our intelligence. Listening to (or reading) “conservative” commentators talk about this issue demands a response. I am sick of hearing these people talk endlessly about Obama’s questionable nativity, then offering new evidence of Obama’s fraudulent persona then patting themselves on the back with assurances that “Well I personally believe the president was born in Hawaii but now let’s talk about what my next guest has uncovered.” The Pontius Pilate act won’t work anymore. Nevertheless, not content to hide behind slick double talk allowing them to deny there is anything to the charge against Obama, while using it for ratings, these people so often go a step further. They talk as if those of us, who actually have enough sense to be able to pour water out of a boot, are toothless drooling halfwits. If these phony “conservatives” really believe Obama was born in Hawaii they are guilty of a grave disservice to him and all of us. Repeating what they “KNOW” to be a “terrible lie” is disgusting. If they really believe Obama’s birth certificate is legitimate isn’t helping to perpetuate this charge almost treasonous? How can they mock us for recognizing the “king has no clothes!” from one side of their mouths and continue to talk about the questions surrounding Obama’s birth from the other? Who’s being phony here? Obama’s claim to having been born in Hawaii is as hilarious as Saturday Night Live’s Cone Heads insisting “We are from France.” Those who say otherwise are fools liars or – in the case of our conservative commentators – cowards. Remember the “Nuts and Sluts” counter attack from Clinton when the evidence he is a moral degenerate built up? If a woman made an accusation she was a “slut.” If a man did, he was a “Nut.” The only difference between then and now is that today the Democrats have feckless “conservative” commentators to help them belittle those who see the truth and speak it. </p> <p>COMMENTS: &#9679; It's one thing for these &quot;conservatives&quot; to say they believe Obama, but then mocking those who know he is lying is too much to take. ~ by jmaroneps37 &#9679; Yes—it is irrational to say that we are not “birthers” which means that we believe the Pathological Liar in Chief. It is the irrational thinking of Marxists—that people who disparage “birthers” are saying that Obama has nothing to hide and is “truthful” which is insane. It is one or the other—why do the Alinsky on people who probably are the most informed and logical—the Birthers are much more likely to be correct because of the millions spent on hiding the “truth”. ~ by savagesusie &#9679; The bottom line is that we all know something is not right. The media and virtually every politician of all political stripes are traitors to this country and it’s people. They should be brought to justice. But worse yet, maybe we are guilty of the same thing for not having the courage to do what must be done to preserve this country for the next generation. ~ JoSixChip &#9679; These ‘conservatives’, as you call them, are as deep in Obama’s pocket as the rest of the MSM. Notice that all of our leading ‘conservatives’, like O’Reilly, Rush and Hannity shy away of saying anything on the subject. ~ 353FMG &#9679; Doesn’t matter where he was born. It is almost certain that he has committed fraud relating to his college / law school admission applications and possibly federal aid. We are supposed to be a nation of laws. Our political “leaders” of all stripes are reinforcing that the law no longer matters. It’s all a lie and a good number of we the people are sick of it. ~ LALALAW &#9679; It does not matter where Obama was born. John McCain was born on a foreign military base, but both of his parents were US citizens, making him eligible for the U.S Presidency. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., was indisputably NOT a U.S. citizen, making Barack Hussein Obama ll ineligible for the U.S. Presidency, even if he were born on the steps of the US capitol building. ~ by E. Pluribus Unum &#9679; What matters is that Obama has made extraordinary efforts to keep his records hidden... all of his records. What matters is that Obama has released through his subordinates...documents that a law enforcement agency has determined are poorly done fraudulent forgeries. What matters is that Obama himself through his literary agent claimed for 16 years to have been born in Kenya. What matters is that the official Obama life narrative has been proved repeatedly to be completely false. Where there is smoke there is fire; I have never seen so much smoke. What matters most of all is that once the United States of America ceases to be a nation which follows our own laws... we no longer will hold the moral high ground and we will sink into our own pit of mediocrity. Obama is a pathological liar. He wouldn't have gone to the trouble of having his records hidden and scrubbed; he wouldn't have gone to the trouble of creating these forgeries if he was not concerned about his own eligibility. This issue needs to be thoroughly examined regardless of the consequences. I do admit that if and when the country finally wakes up; when it finally is demonstrated that Obama is and always was ineligible...the ramifications are going to be almost endless. The illegal usurper has caused irreparable harm to the future of our children, our grandchildren, and even their grandchildren. ~ by fireman15 </p> <p>Hawaii Senior Elections Clerk: “Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii” Holder, you a**hole, you assured me ALL my records were sealed ad infinitum. </p> <p>By George Spelvin - For starters, just because there is no long form birth certificate on file in Hawaii, that doesn’t rule out President Obama being born elsewhere in the United States, or even in Hawaii,” states Hawaii’s former Senior Election Clerk Timothy Lee Adams in his Masters Thesis which was signed off on by four English Department Deans at Western Kentucky University in partial fulfillment of the Requirement for Degree of Master of Arts, on June 13, 2011. (1) Adams was the Chief Elections Clerk (Pg. 30) for the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii. “On a temporary contract, I ran an office that verified voter eligibility that had a staff of about fifty people,” he also told radio interview host James Edwards of the Liberty News Radio Network. </p> <p>“Barack Obama was not born in Hawaii,” the former elections clerk continued. “It (Pg. 31) was openly admitted by everyone in the office who was above me, at least my immediate supervisors, that there is no documentation.” </p> <p>Adams details the governmental databases and other means of authentication used included “NCIS, Social Security, all these other things we use on average voters; there were two people higher than me in our office, who are under the City Clerk of Honolulu. . .” (Pg. 30) Now Adams emphatically states in his Masters Thesis: “. . .in my professional opinion, Barack Obama was NOT (emphasis added) born in the United States, and there is no Hawaii long-form birth certificate.” (Pg. 30, 31) Contrast this man’s statement, a man who was vetted for military, civil, and academic service, with the Verification of Birth certified statement of Alvin T. Onaka, State Registrar, signed and issued to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett on May 22, 2012. Onaka’s document says: “Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes 338-14.3, I verify the following: A birth certificate is on file with the Department of Health indicating that Barack Hussein Obama, II was born in Honolulu, Hawaii.” Now Onaka’s 12 point official Department of Health document bearing the seal of the State of Hawaii, also says, pt. 7, “Birthplace of Father: Kenya, East Africa,” providing official authentication and documentation that the sitting President of the United States does not carry the Natural Born Citizenship status as required by Article II, Sect. 1, clause 5, of our U.S. Constitution, the higher standard required to hold the office of President! Adams details in his 96 page Masters document the enormous amount of vicious cyber attacks, intimidations, and ad hominem attacks lobbed at him from all sorts of political and media operatives. Because he has had male patterned baldness since his youth, this now 47 year old man was labeled a “Skinhead,” and even neighborhood children called him that while hurling pebbles at him. Adams credits the GLOBE Celebrity Magazine which did four features on him as having treated him with the most decency and professionalism. When a youtube video of his interview went viral, and the intimidation and threats became extremely intense, meetings were held, and he virtually went silent in the Land of Free Speech. Additionally, Adams revealed that “We (Pg. 31-32) had a set of documents, fifty identity documents stolen out of the office, and they were all the voting records-the ballots that people sent in who were members of the U.S. Foreign Service around the Pacific rim.” Adams goes on, “From there, things got really, really ugly,” and he left to finish his academic requirements in Hawaii and to move to Western Kentucky University “where I teach now.” (Pg. 32). Apparently these government dignitaries who had mailed in their absentee ballots did not want it revealed who they had voted for as it would have made it difficult for them to hold onto their jobs! Adams, (Pg. 34) says, “A lie has been told, and when a lie is obvious, the public’s just not going to go away.” And then, this: “President Obama’s (Pg. 33) official autobiography is false.” How does that compute with Onaka saying, “Additionally, I verify that the information in the copy of the Certificate of Live Birth for Mr. Obama that you Arizona SoS Bennett] attached with your request matches the original record in our files?” Guess what, it does not. And the public is not going away, either. </p> <p>Sheriff Joe's Posse: 'Hawaii Duped the Dummy, Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett Letter on Obama eligibility 'doesn’t verify anything of significance' — Lead investigator says Hawaii has outsmarted Bennett 'These exceptionally nice people made me a wonderful offer I had to accept . . . they are really great people.' </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi - “Hawaii duped Arizona” in its response to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s request to verify Barack Obama’s eligibility for the 2012 election, charges the lead investigator of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse. “We have developed incontrovertible proof that the verification provided by the Hawaii Department of Health to Arizona’s secretary of state on May 22 really doesn’t verify anything of significance,” said Mike Zullo, who is in Hawaii to follow up on his team’s initial findings concerning Obama’s birth record. As WND reported, after more than eight weeks of pressing Hawaii’s Department of Health, Bennett said Tuesday that he finally received information that proves Obama’s American birth and satisfies Arizona’s requirements for placing the president on the ballot. Zullo – who met with Hawaii Department of Health officials in Honolulu the day before the letter to Bennett was issued – said that after he returns to Phoenix to brief Arpaio, the sheriff will schedule a press conference “at the earliest possible date in June.” Zullo explained his team will need time to prepare the extensive new information developed since Arpaio’s March 1 press conference. The sheriff announced at that time that his posse had found probable cause that the Obama birth record released by the White House one year ago and Obama’s Selective Service registration form are forgeries. Zullo declined to detail the new information but pointed to what he considered “obvious defects” in the May 22 letter the Hawaii Department of Health sent to Bennett: </p> <p>&#9679; Tuesday’s letter, he said, fails to identify or list President Obama’s date of birth, even though the letter’s apparent purpose was for the Hawaii Department of Health to verify Obama was born in Hawaii. &#9679; To the right of the registrar’s stamp on the letter appear the initials “gk,” suggesting that Hawaii Department of Health Registrar Alvin Onaka did not apply the registrar’s stamp himself. </p> <p>“I suspect these defects are not accidental,” Zullo said. “My suspicion is that top officials in the Hawaii DOH and the Hawaii Attorney General’s office created a defective document that could be disclaimed rather that take the time to produce a thoroughly proofread and officially certified legally binding state document.” Zullo told WND that Onaka refused to meet with him and his investigators when they appeared this week at the downtown Honolulu headquarters of the Hawaii Department of Health. “Either Onaka refused to initial his registrar’s stamp or the Hawaii DOH is not sufficiently competent to produce a legally valid document,” Zullo concluded. “But either way, the cover-up appears alive and well in Hawaii.” Zullo insisted defects in the Hawaii letter were not limited to what might be explained as clerical errors or Hawaii DOH operating policies. “The Hawaii DOH letter is nothing more than a highly lawyered, cleverly crafted document that we can now prove does not verify what it appears to verify,” he said. “At Sheriff Arpaio’s next press conference we will be able to prove that the Hawaii DOH has actually refused to verify either that Obama was born in Hawaii or that the long-form birth-certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is an authentic document.” As WND reported, Arpaio launched his investigation last September after 250 Maricopa County residents belonging to the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party presented him with a petition claiming their voting rights would be compromised if Obama used a forged birth certificate to win a place on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot. </p> <p>Political Pressure: Zullo affirmed to WND that he believes Hawaii has outsmarted Bennett. “To begin with, it was no surprise to me that Bennett buckled to political pressure,” Zullo said. “I knew when I met with Mr. Bennett last week in Phoenix, before we left for Hawaii, that he was desperately trying to get out of the political corner he had painted himself into.” Zullo told WND that in an approximately hour-long meeting May 15 in Bennett’s Phoenix government office, the secretary of state said he fully expected there would be no problem getting the Hawaii government to verify that Obama was born in Hawaii. “Bennett obviously believed Obama was telling the truth,” Zullo said. “He was shocked when Hawaii didn’t immediately issue the verification. As it dragged on into weeks, Bennett became desperate to do whatever Hawaii asked to get what amounts to even this meaningless letter.” Zullo explained to WND that immediately following his meeting with Bennett, he returned to MCSO headquarters and briefed Arpaio. “I told the sheriff that I suspected Bennett would reach over backwards in a desperate attempt to get some form of document from the Hawaii Health Department in written form, so he could managed to come out of the political problem he had created for himself,” Zullo said. “In my meeting with Sheriff Arpaio, I disclosed my belief that Secretary of State Bennett would confer with Hawaii’s attorney general to draft a second, probably watered-down letter of request from Hawaii,” he continued. Zullo said it was “no shock to me or Sheriff Arpaio when the verification was released, and we believe the timing is suspect in that the release of the verification came one day after MCSO met with Hawaii Department of Health officials in Honolulu.” In his meeting with Zullo, Bennett admitted that he never would have made the promise in writing to members of the Surprise Tea Party if he thought there might be a problem getting the verification. “My impression was that Bennett wanted to appear sympathetic to the tea party group to win their political favor, but that he guessed wrong, calculating that Hawaii was telling the truth about Obama’s birth and had nothing to hide,” Zullo said. “Bennett was dumbfounded when Hawaii hesitated.” Zullo told WND that his purpose in requesting the meeting with Bennett was to share with the Arizona secretary of state recent developments in the MCSO law enforcement investigation into Obama’s birth. “I was shocked to find out Bennett knew virtually nothing about our investigation – only what he read in the newspapers,” Zullo said. He added that Bennett did not appear interested in understanding the serious information the investigation had developed. “When I tried to bring him up to speed, it became apparent the 20 minutes remaining in the meeting was not going to be enough time to explain even th key points of the investigation,” Zullo said. “I felt Bennett was totally ignorant of what I was talking about, and he really didn’t care.” Zullo said he left Bennett’s office fully convinced the secretary of state would capitulate to pressure by Arizona and national Republican Party officials, including Sen. John McCain. Bennett has declared his desire to run for Arizona governor. He is currently the co-chairman of Gov. Mitt Romney’s Arizona presidential campaign.

Corsi - Sheriff Joe Arpaio says the decision by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to place Barack Obama’s name on the state’s presidential ballot won’t put an end to the investigation by his Cold Case posse team, which now has its lead detective on the ground in Honolulu. “No, I’m not going to call it quits,” Arpaio told WND. “I’m not calling my Cold Case Posse investigators home from Hawaii, and I don’t plan to end my investigation prematurely.” After more than eight weeks of pressing Hawaii’s Department of Health, Bennett said last night that he finally received information that proves Obama’s American birth and satisfies Arizona’s requirements for having the president on the ballot, reported azcentral.com Sign the petition now to show members of Congress how many Americans demand constitutional integrity. The reported verification from Hawaii came only after Bennett, a Republican who has aspirations to run for governor, closely tailored his request to conform to the demands of Hawaii’s attorney general.

But he said he only plans to use Hawaii’s answer as a way to satisfy demands from constituents who remain unconvinced Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States and so therefore eligible to be president. He also said he talked to Hawaii’s attorney general on Monday night and clarified what he is looking to have verified. He said he “reworded” his request and expects to receive a response from Hawaii officials “in the next 24 to 48 hours.” Last week, Bennett told a different Phoenix radio station it was “possible” he would keep Obama off the state’s ballot in November if Hawaii did not provide him with a satisfactory answers to his investigation. On Tuesday, Bennett told talk show hosts Mac Watson and Larry Gaydos he had no idea about the wave of criticism he endure get after launching his investigation into the president’s birth certificate. He said again that he doesn’t consider himself a birther and he believes the president was born in Hawaii but he did this to satisfy a small number of vocal people who kept sending him angry emails about it. “I feel like I was just trying to glue the far little corner of the carpet down,” Bennett said. “And as soon as you just touch the carpet, the whole floor buckles.” </p> <p>SHOWDOWN! Sheriff Joe Arpaio Dispatches His 'Cold Case Posse' After Hawaiian Officials Refuse to Confirm Possession of Certified Copy of Obama's Birth Certificate In a major development in his probe of Barack Obama’s eligibility for Arizona’s 2012 presidential ballot, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has dispatched his lead Cold Case Posse investigator and a deputy detective to Hawaii. The mission to Obama’s purported birthplace comes as the Hawaii Department of Health continues to resist efforts by Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett to verify that the Honolulu agency has a valid birth certificate on file for Obama. Former Bergen County, N.J., detective Mike Zullo and his volunteer team were commissioned by Arpaio last September to investigate Obama’s eligibility after citizens raised concerns about the authenticity of the birth record the White House posted on its website. Zullo’s team announced March 1 that it found probable cause that the document is a forgery. Zullo’s investigation is a volunteer effort, but the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has sent him to Hawaii with an MCSO deputy detective for safety reasons and to act as a liaison between MCSO and local law enforcement. WND reporter Jerome Corsi is embedded with the investigators in Hawaii with the provision that reporting during the trip be curtailed to protect the investigation. Arpaio told WND Friday that the Hawaii Department of Health’s refusal to confirm to Bennett that it has a valid Obama birth certificate on file makes it look like Hawaii officials “are hiding something.” Bennett has said that he might keep Obama’s name off of the state’s presidential ballot if he doesn’t receive the confirmation. Eight weeks ago, the secretary of state asked Hawaii officials merely for an email confirming the Department of Health has a certified copy of the birth certificate, but Hawaii officials have not complied. Zullo told WND Friday that Hawaii’s refusal to comply “is just another outright, glaring display of stonewalling that the Sheriff’s Office has encountered since Day One conducting this investigation.” Zullo said “common sense at this point should be everyone’s guide.” “If this was a non-issue, it wouldn’t be going on eight weeks waiting for the state of Hawaii to verify anything,” he said. Over the weekend, KTVK-TV in Phoenix reported the Hawaii attorney general’s office has told Bennett he needs to take certain steps to confirm Obama’s birth records. The steps include Bennett proving that he “legitimately needs confirmation to update records at his office.” Zullo told WND that Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office investigators have spoken at length with Bennett regarding the president’s birth record. Zullo said his team spoke with Bennett as recently as last week. “We are in the beginning stages of enlightening him to critical information that the sheriff has acquired during this investigation,” Zullo said. ‘It looks like they’re hiding something’ Arpaio’s team also is investigating the president’s Selective Service registration form, which his team also found probable cause to be a forgery. He told WND he’s not getting much cooperation with federal and state governments. “But that doesn’t matter; we’re still going to continue our investigation and see if those documents are forged,” he said. Regarding the Hawaii Department of Health, Arpaio noted he’s said since the beginning of the investigation last fall, “Show me the microfilm.” “They won’t do that, so it looks like they’re hiding something,” he said. Arpaio said he will continue his investigation regardless of whether or not Obama gets on the ballot. In an interview last Thursday with Phoenix radio host Mike Broomhead of KFYI, Bennett was asked if he would remove Obama’s name from the ballot if Hawaii won’t reply to his request. “That’s possible. Or the other option would be that I would ask all the candidates, including the president, to submit a certified copy of their birth certificate,” Bennett said. Bennett explained that under Hawaii law, government officials can request verification that the state has possession of a valid birth certificate. “They could say yes tomorrow, and the whole thing goes away,” Bennett said. “If they can’t say yes to that simple question, then it makes me wonder if we have to take it to another level.” Bennett said that regardless of Hawaii’s response, he needs “to have to have some simple verification that people are qualified for the office if they’re going to be on the ballot here in Arizona.” The Arizona official insisted he’s not a “birther” and denied he’s trying to appease “birthers” because he wants to run for governor. “I believe the president was born in Hawaii – or at least I hope he was,” Bennett said. </p> <p>Why Kenyan Birth Claim Was No 'Fact Checking Error' </p> <p>By Jack Cashill - No sooner did the literary agency brochure in which Barack Obama was said to be Kenyan-born surface than the media went to work to deep-six it. &quot;This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me - an agency assistant at the time,&quot; Miriam Goderich, now a named partner in the literary agency, Dystel &amp; Goderich, wrote in an emailed statement to Yahoo News, which was then picked up ABC News. &quot;There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.&quot; This confession rings false to the point of preposterous for any number of reasons. Let us start with the obvious. At the time, 1991, the Acton &amp; Dystel agency listed 90 clients, Obama among its least significant. How likely is it that Goderich would have remembered enough about a 1991 &quot;error&quot; to know it was hers, especially since it went uncorrected through several revisions until changed in 2007? To make this claim credible, there would have to be an existing paper trail leading to an Obama submission in which he lists an Hawaiian birth. I am confident that there is no such submission. </p> <p>Cops, Witnesses Back Up George Zimmerman's Version of Trayvon Martin Shooting — But Unconvincing for &quot;Angela the Pig Prosecutor&quot; THE PIG </p> <p>Two police reports written the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin said that Zimmerman had a bloody face and nose, according to police reports made public today. The reports also note that two witness accounts appear to back up Zimmerman's version of what happened when they describe a man on his back with another person wearing a hoodie straddling him and throwing punches. It has been such a contentious case that even the evidence is being disputed. The police report states that Trayvon Martin's father told an investigator after listening to 911 tapes that captured a man's voice frantically callling for help that it was not his son calling for help. But Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, claims that is not true. The Martin family lawyer Ben Crump told ABC News that Tracy Martin initially listened to a distorted version of the 911 calls and said he could not identify the voice. But when he listened to a second tape that had been &quot;cleaned,&quot; &quot;He immediately broke down in tears because he knew it was his son calling for help,&quot; Crump said. The new information is part of a trove of documents released by the Florida State Attorney today in the case against Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder for the Feb. 26 killing of Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old African American male. Surveillance video of Martin in a store purchasing skittles right before the fatal incident was also released today. Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who volunteered for the neighborhood watch committee who claimed that he shot Martin in self-defense after the 6-foot tall, 160 pound teenager knocked him to the ground, banged his head against the ground and went for Zimmerman's gun. The documents start with a criticism of Zimmerman's decision to follow the teenager, who Zimmerman said was looking suspicious. &quot;The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman, if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement,&quot; an investigating officer wrote. Zimmerman claims he got out of his vehicle to find a house number to let police know where he saw the allegedly suspicious person, and while returning to his car was knocked down by a punch in the nose and attacked by Martin. Two police officers reported that when they arrived at the scene of the shooting, Zimmerman seemed to have a battered nose and bloodied face. One wrote that his &quot;facial area was bloodied,&quot; and the back of his clothing was soiled with wet grass. &quot;Zimmerman was also bleeding from the nose and the back of his head,&quot; Officer Ricardo Ayala wrote. Another officer wrote, &quot;I saw that Zimmerman's face was bloodied and it appeared to me that his nose was broken.&quot; Witnesses, whose names were redacted from the report, also lent support to Zimmerman's version of what happened. &quot;He witnesses a black male, wearing a dark colored 'hoodie' on top of a white or Hispanic male and throwing punches 'MMA (mixed martial arts) style,'&quot; the police report of the witness said. &quot;He then heard a pop. He stated that after hearing the pop, he observed the person he had previously observed on top of the other person (the male wearing the hoodie) laid out on the grass.&quot; A second witness described a person on the ground with another straddling him and throwing punches. The man on the bottom was yelling for help, the witness told police. The documents state that Zimmerman can be heard yelling for help 14 times on a 911 call recorded during the fight. Yet another witness described the confrontation in emotional terms. The witness heard &quot;someone yelling, almost crying. Then I heard a gunshot.&quot; The witness wrote that he or she &quot;saw a man on top of a guy laying on the ground. He was putting his hands on his neck or chest.&quot; The man asked the witness to call 911. &quot;He stood up and took a couple steps away and put his hands on his head and then walked back over to the guy on the ground. He looked at him for a minute, then started to walk away toward the road. That is when the police walked up,&quot; the witness wrote. The lead investigator on the case, Officer Christopher Serino, wrote that Zimmerman could be heard &quot;yelling for help as he was being battered by Trayvon Martin.&quot; Martin's death sparked public outrage after police released Zimmerman without any criminal charges for the killing. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder, and the killing provoked widespread debate about racial profiling. The autopsy also shows that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between 1 inch and 18 inches away, bolstering Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin during a close struggle. Martin's autopsy report also revealed that there was a quarter-inch by half-inch abrasion on the left fourth finger of Martin, another indication of a possible struggle. The teen, who lived in Miami, was in Sanford while serving a suspension for a bag of marijuana being discovered in his possession. Martin had THC, the drug found in marijuana, in his blood on the night of his death, according to the autopsy. His family told ABC News that it was &quot;trace amounts&quot; of THC. </p> <p>Trayvon Martin Had THC in His System, Autopsy Found How do you think I paid for this pretty grill at 16 Benjamins per ounce. Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer, had the drug THC in his system the night of this death, according to new information obtained by ABC News. The revelation came as prosecutors in the case prepared to release to the public hundreds of pages of new evidence along with videos and crime scene photos. Martin's death sparked public outrage after police released Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, without any criminal charges for the killing. Zimmerman, 28, is a multi-racial Hispanic man who shot the black high school junior at close range on Feb. 26, and claimed self-defense, though Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman was later charged with second-degree murder, and the killing provoked widespread debate about racial profiling. The autopsy report shows traces of the drug THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol is the principal psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant), commonly called marijuana, in Martin's blood and urine. The autopsy also shows that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between 1 inch and 18 inches away, bolstering Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin during a struggle that landed Zimmerman on his back, Martin straddling him and banging Zimmerman's head on the ground. Martin's autopsy report also revealed that there was a quarter-inch by half-inch abrasion on the left fourth finger of Martin, another indication of a possible struggle. The teen, who lived in Miami, was in Sanford while serving a suspension for a bag of marijuana being discovered in his possession. Later today, a trove of documents that are part of the discovery in Zimmerman's trial are expected to be released on a website run by the state's attorney, including 67 CDs worth of documents, video of Martin on the night of the shooting, his autopsy report and videos of Zimmerman's questioning by police.

Trayvon Martin Case: Zimmerman Medical Report Watch Video Obama: 'If I Had a Son, He'd Look Like Trayvon' Watch Video George Zimmerman Targeted on Twitter Watch Video </p> <p>What Zimmerman, Martin Medical Reports Tell Us and the Media Didn't Zimmerman's Report Shows Broken Nose, Head Lacerations; Trayvon Martin Had Broken Skin on Multiple Knuckles If Trayvon had used his brass knuckles he would be alive today. </p> <p>By John Lott - The new medical reports on the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case tell us a lot. And it is not just for what they find, but also what they don’t find. First, the reports provide striking evidence that Zimmerman did not start the fight with Martin, and that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense. Martin’s injuries were two-fold: broken skin on his knuckles and the fatal gunshot wound. Zimmerman’s injuries involved: a fractured nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury. It takes considerable force to break the skin on multiple knuckles. The large range of injuries on Zimmerman indicates that the Martin’s attack was prolonged. But here is what is missing: where are the injuries to Zimmerman’s hands? Where are the bruises on Martin’s face or other parts of his body? The evidence paints a picture where Martin was the only person landing blows. The broken skin on Martin’s knuckles and Zimmerman’s wounds obviously provide some justification for self-defense. But if Zimmerman is to have justifiably used self-defense, he can’t have provoked Martin’s attack. The affidavit filed by the prosecutor against Zimmerman was extremely weak and had many glaring omissions. It does not answer the most crucial question: Who attacked whom? All it states is: “Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued.” “Confronted” does not mean “provoked” or “assaulted.” It may mean that Zimmerman merely followed Martin and asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood. Surely Zimmerman had the right to investigate a strange person in his neighborhood. But, in any case, Zimmerman simply asking Martin why he was in the neighborhood doesn’t give Martin the right to start striking him or pounding his head into the concrete sidewalk. Simple words do not justify hitting someone. Anyway, it appears that Zimmerman didn’t even question Martin. The 911 tape of Zimmerman reporting a strange person in the area indicates that Zimmerman didn’t even try to ask Martin a question. When the police operator told Zimmerman “we don’t need you to do that following Martin],” Zimmerman appears to have stopped following Martin and agreed to go to where the police would be arriving. The medical evidence implies that Zimmerman did not physically attack Martin and thus there was no justification for Martin to start hitting Zimmerman. With the case unraveling, it makes the prosecutor’s behavior look even more outrageous. The prosecutor wasn’t required to go to the grand jury for the indictment, but the fact that she didn’t in such a high-profile case is troubling. Everyone knows how easy it is for a prosecutor to get a grand jury to indict, because only the prosecutor presents evidence and the standard of proof is very low. A grand-jury indictment would have provided political cover; that charges were brought without one means that the prosecutor was worried that even a grand jury would not give her the indictment. The Obama administration has been fanning the flames, and it isn’t just President Obama’s attempt to personalize the tragedy. News reports surfaced Tuesday that the US Justice Department was pushing hard to charge Zimmerman, who is part black himself, with a hate crime because Martin was black. Such a charge can carry a life prison term or even the death penalty. Yet, Zimmerman and his wife mentored two black children for free. A recent Reuters report that interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors found that both black and Hispanics viewed Zimmerman as someone who cared deeply about his neighbors and volunteered to head the community watch to help them. The claim that Zimmerman referred to blacks as “f***ing coons” has long since been dropped. Using this case for political purposes has already come at a real cost. In Gainesville, Florida; Oak Park, Illinois; Mobile, Alabama; Toledo, Ohio; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and possibly Norfolk, Va., blacks have attacked whites in what they think is revenge for Zimmerman attacking Martin because he was black, and those are just the cases where the perpetrators would make some comment such as “This is for Trayvon.” The media has been partially responsible for this aftermath with its sensational reporting. Recent coverage has helped to balance things out, but responsible reporting requires still more. Bottom line: the medical reports about George Zimmerman are revealing a lot more information than the media have so far let on. </p> <p>John R. Lott, Jr. is a FOXNews.com contributor.

When he lost miserably the future First Lady was supposedly disgusted that her husband had ignored her warnings not to take on the four term incumbent Bobby Rush, who was co-founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers in 1968 and was made its &quot;defense minister.&quot; Their marriage - in its eighth year at the time - was ‘on the rocks’ with Mr Obama so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal. The claims mark the second time the Obamas have faced allegations they were on the verge of divorce after reports in 2010 suggested they were having difficulties. The couple have admitted that in the past they did go through a rough patch but that they patched things up and grew closer together. The Obamas have now been married for 21 years and have two children, Malia, 13, and Sasha, nine. In his new book, “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House,” journalist Edward Klein claims that Mr Obama was over ambitious in his attempt to take on House member Mr Rush for the black South Side seat in Chicago. In a crushing blow, he lost by two votes to one prompting claims from Mr Rush that he was an ‘educated fool’. </p> <p>Newsweek Cover: 'The First Gay President' — Who Knew!?

But don’t believe the cynics. Andrew Sullivan argues that this announcement has been in the making for years. “When you step back a little and assess the record of Obama on gay rights, you see, in fact, that this was not an aberration. It was an inevitable culmination of three years of work.” And President Obama has much in common with the gay community. “He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity and then have to reconcile it with their heterosexual family,” Sullivan writes. </p> <p>Andrew Sullivan on Barack Obama: The First Gay President The president’s bold support shifted the mainstream. Andrew Sullivan on why it shouldn't be surprising — Obama’s life as a biracial man has deep ties to the gay experience. </p> <p>Sullivan holds back tears talking about what Obama's gay marriage stance means to him By Andrew Sullivan - May 13, 2012 — It was the spring of 2007, back when Barack Obama’s bid for the presidency seemed quixotic at best. I’d seen Obama speak to a crowd and was impressed but wanted to see if what I’d seen from afar held up under closer scrutiny. So I asked to attend a private fundraiser in a tony apartment in Georgetown. I promised not to write anything. I just wanted to see the man up close and get a better sense of him and his character. At one point in the question-and-answer session, a woman looked him square in the eyes with what can only be called maternal grit. “My son is gay,” she said, and the room went suddenly quiet. “I don’t understand why you don’t support his right to marry the person he loves. It’s so disappointing to me.” Obama, without losing eye contact for a second, told her: “I want full equality for your son—all the rights and benefits that marriage brings. I really do. But the word ‘marriage’ stirs up so much religious feeling. I think civil unions are the way to go. As long as they are equal.” </p> <p>My heart sank. Was this obviously humane African-American actually advocating a “separate but equal” solution—a form of marital segregation like the one that made his own parents’ marriage a felony in many states when he was born? Hadn’t he already declared he supported marriage equality when he was running for the Illinois Senate in 1996? </p> <p>Libel Case Against Obama's 'Gay' Accuser Tossed by Federal Judge Larry &amp; Barack on their 2-day sex and drug binge in 1999 (simulation, but accurate) Larry Sinclair Claimed President's Campaign Advisor David Axelrod Paid to Rig His Polygraph Test </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi - A federal judge has dismissed a libel case against a homosexual who claimed Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign paid to rig a polygraph test regarding his sensational charge that he had sex and used drugs with the future president. Larry Sinclair – who claims he twice engaged in sexual activity and used cocaine with Obama in 1999 when Obama was an Illinois state senator – was accused by Internet publisher Daniel Parisi of making false and damaging statements that led to the demise of Parisi’s porn website, Whitehouse.com, in 2008. The alleged defamation did not center on Sinclair’s charges of sex and drugs with Obama but on Sinclair’s claim in his 2009 book that the Obama campaign and top adviser David Axelrod had agreed to pay Parisi $750,000 to rig the results of a polygraph test. Parisi failed to present any evidence that Sinclair’s claim about Axelrod and the Obama campaign was false, wrote U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon in his Feb. 28 opinion dismissing the case. Parisi filed March 30 jointly with Sinclair a “Stipulation and Order of Voluntary Dismissal,” which effectively ended Parisi’s claims against Sinclair and Sinclair Publishing. Sinclair recounted in his book, &quot;Barack Obama &amp; Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies &amp; Murder (available here),” Parisi’s offer to pay him $10,000 to take a polygraph test regarding his charge that he engaged in sexual acts with Obama in Chicago. In the deal, Parisi would pay $100,000 if the polygraph showed Sinclair was telling the truth. In a modified agreement, Sinclair was paid $20,000 to take the test. He failed it, according to an examiner’s report, and two other examiners corroborated the result, the judge’s opinion said. Parisi alleges Sinclair made defamatory statements in the book, including his assertion that “the polygraph was rigged and was arranged by Dan Parisi and Obama Campaign advisor David Axelrod.” The judge, however, said Parisi failed to show Sinclair had published any knowingly false statements and concluded that he had taken appropriate steps to verify the information before publishing it. Citing precedent, the judge argued that when the victim of the alleged defamation is a public figure, like Parisi, the statement in question must amount to more than negligence. The statement must be made with actual malice, he wrote, with knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard as to whether it or not it was true. Furthermore, Parisi couldn’t support his claim that Sinclair’ statement was false, the judge said. “The complaint contains no factual allegations, other than the plaintiffs own assertions that the statements were false,” Leon wrote. Sinclair’s source of his allegation against Parisi and the Obama campaign was an anonymous phone call, but he tried to confirm the information with Parisi, who refused to respond, Leon states in his opinion. Also, a Chicago Tribune reporter contacted the tipster and affirmed Sinclair’s statement, the judge said. Along with Sinclair and Sinclair Publishing, Parisi had sued radio talk show-host and Internet author Jeffrey Rense, who wrote the forward to Sinclair’s book; booksellers Books-A-Million and Barnes &amp; Noble; book distributor Ingram Content Group; and Internet retail giant Amazon.com. Parisi still plans to appeal Leon’s dismissal of the case against Amazon.com, now the only remaining defendant. Parisi’s suit effectively stopped the hardcover printing of Sinclair’s books, with used copies selling for as much $600 on Amazon.com. While defending himself in court, Sinclair was able to sell a paperback edition of the book on his website, LarrySinclair.net. Sinclair told WND in a telephone interview that he stands by the claims in his book. “I still believe all the charges I have made are true, and I have seen nothing to date that would change my beliefs,” he said. He also continues to stand by his primary charge against Obama. “I know from personal experience that Obama lied when he said he had given up drugs in college, and I can attest in detail to the fact Obama engages in homosexual sex,” Sinclair said. In addition, Sinclair says he believes that the murder of Donald Young – the homosexual choirmaster Murdered for being a liability at Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago – was an attempt to protect Barack Obama’s secrets. Young was murdered shortly before the 2008 Iowa Caucus. In the lawsuit, Parisi had sought from Sinclair $30 million in damages for himself and his various corporations, including Whitehouse.com Inc., Whitehouse Network LLC and White House Communications Inc. Parisi claimed he created the entities to function as news agencies. Sinclair represented himself in court while Parisi was represented by Patton Boggs, one of the most expensive, prestigious and politically connected law firms in the nation’s capital. Sinclair, with no formal legal training, is not a lawyer licensed to practice law in the District of Columbia. WND could not reach Parisi for comment. Richard Oparil, Parisi’s attorney at Patton Boggs, also did not return WND calls asking for comment. In January 2008, when Sinclair initially came forward to make his charges against Obama, he admitted to his criminal past, including having served prison time in Florida, Arizona and Colorado. Read &quot;Citizen Wells&quot; background account of Larry Sinclair's accusations Book Excerpt: Jealous Michelle vs. Oprah How two of world's most powerful women grew to despise each other </p> <p>Bi-sexual Lust: What happened in the Lincoln Bedroom, stayed there! </p> <p>In his new book, “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House,” journalist Edward Klein reveals how even former friends and political allies of the president have become frustrated with his remoteness and bungling of crises. Klein, former editor of The New York Times Magazine and frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, interviewed numerous members of Obama’s inner circle. In this excerpt, he explains how even celebrity backer Oprah Winfrey was shoved aside. </p> <p>By Edward Klein - Shortly after the 2008 presidential election, Oprah Winfrey traveled to Washington, DC, to nail down an interview for O, The Oprah Magazine with Michelle Obama. Oprah expected the president-elect and his wife to give her a reception fit for visiting royalty, and for the occasion, she took along Gayle King, the magazine’s editor-at-large and her constant companion. More than a year and a half had passed since Oprah announced that she was throwing her support behind Barack Obama in his primary race against Hillary Clinton. The endorsement had represented a calculated risk for the queen of daytime television. It was one thing for her to recommend a book or launch the career of Dr. Phil, but it was quite another for her to back a political candidate. As it turned out, a sizable chunk of her audience took offense and stopped watching her show. No sooner had Oprah hit the campaign trail, appearing beside Obama at one primary rally after another, than her personal favorability ratings began to slide, falling from 74 to 66 percent. Her unfavorable ratings suffered an even worse fate; they jumped from 17 to 26 percent. Was the sacrifice worth it? As an entertainer and businesswoman, Oprah had suffered a setback. But she felt proud that she had been instrumental in electing the first black president of the United States, and she believed that she had earned a place in the president-elect’s brain trust. Two economists at the University of Maryland, College Park, estimated that Oprah’s endorsement netted Obama 1,015,559 votes and decided the primary election. During the early weeks of the presidential transition, as Obama stitched together his new White House team, he appeared to embrace Oprah as one of his trusted advisers. When she phoned, he dropped everything and took her call. They huddled over strategy. Of all of Obama’s unofficial White House advisers, Oprah had unparalleled access, input, influence, and power. However, by the time Oprah and Gayle landed in Washington a month after the election, Oprah’s relationship with the Obamas had come unglued. OPRAH had tried to ignore the ominous change in tone coming from the Obama transition team. As Barack Obama’s inauguration drew near, Oprah’s calls to Michelle went unreturned. Instead, Oprah heard from Max Doebler, the newly appointed White House ceremonies coordinator, who told Oprah that she needed to talk to him first about the interview. What’s more, Doebler said, Oprah had to run her interview questions past Jeff Stephens, a deputy speech writer, for prior approval. “It was a pain as far as Oprah was concerned,” said a high-ranking executive of Harpo Studios, Oprah’s production company. “Oprah isn’t a snob, but she doesn’t like having to put up with mid-level clerks. These guys were $75,000-a-year men. Oprah was like, ‘Hello, what is this s--t!’ “But she did it; she went to Washington with Gayle and met with both Doebler and Stephens to hash out the details. I was surprised that she went there, hat in hand.” It soon became apparent that something had gone wrong between Oprah and the new administration — or, more precisely, between Oprah and Michelle Obama. </p> <p>Barack's Fetish for the Exotic: Geez! Do they both have 6 toes? — Ugh! Count 'em &#8593; </p> <p>The problem seemed to originate from two of Michelle’s advisers, Valerie Jarrett and Desirée Rogers, the new White House social secretary. They resented Oprah’s meddling in their bailiwick. Among other things, Oprah had a plan to redecorate the Lincoln bedroom. She also had ideas about how Michelle could put more zing into White House social events. As the person who controlled access to the first couple, Valerie Jarrett saw Oprah as a potential threat to her power. If Oprah went unchecked, she would bypass Valerie and go directly to the president and first lady. What good was it being the gatekeeper if you couldn’t lock the gate when you wanted? And so Valerie set about turning Michelle against Oprah. Oprah was too close to the president . . . Oprah was acting like she was the first lady . . . Oprah didn’t know her place . . . Oprah was a bad influence . . . Valerie advised Michelle to “distance herself” from Oprah and cut her out of the White House inner circle. IT didn’t take much to convince Michelle. As Michelle knew only too well, her husband had a compelling need to win the approval of strong women like Oprah. He seemed to be in awe of the talk-show host, sometimes giving her advice priority over Michelle’s. For instance, Oprah thought that Obama was overexposing himself on television and told him to pull back. Though Michelle disagreed, Obama listened to Oprah and restricted his TV appearances. As far as Michelle was concerned, Oprah’s billions and her elite lifestyle disqualified her as an adviser to Barack, who had no truck with wealthy people, except as a source of campaign contributions, and was a redistributionist at heart. There was another reason for Michelle’s negative attitude toward Oprah. “Michelle is very jealous, I would say unusually so,” said someone who was very close to Oprah. “Most people after years of marriage have trust and don’t follow their husbands around and check on them. Michelle doesn’t seem to trust Barack at all. She insists on knowing his every movement and drops in on him at all kinds of odd times. It’s been the buzz of the White House. Oprah has gossiped about it and giggled about how obsessive Michelle is. This is what she hears from her friends who work in the East Wing, and, believe me, she has some good sources. “Michelle makes it clear to her inner circle, and this certainly includes Valerie, that she wants women around Barack watched and wants info about who he has an eye for and gets touchy with,” this person continued. “The thing is, she knows, like everybody, about JFK’s shenanigans, and she thinks, hey, JFK was young and good looking like my guy. “Michelle talked to Gayle King about it, just talking as friends. She has become much closer to Gayle than to Oprah, to Oprah’s anger and surprise. She told Gayle that if she found out her husband was running around, she wouldn’t keep quiet. Gayle was kind of astonished that she would say that.” Eventually, Oprah got a green light for her interview. When they arrived, Oprah and Gayle weren’t treated like VIPs; they were made to wait at the security gate like ordinary visitors. Once inside, they had to cool their heels for a long time before they were shown up to the Yellow Oval Room in the family residence, where Michelle finally made an appearance. “Michelle told Oprah and Gayle what great light the room got,” said a Harpo executive who spoke to Oprah later about the meeting. “But it was a grim, overcast, washed-out sort of a day. Michelle also told them how great it was to be waited on by a large staff, as if Oprah wouldn’t know about that. And oddly enough, Michelle mentioned that the White House cooks made the best pie in the world. But she didn’t offer Oprah or Gayle any . . . “Michelle seemed to direct her answers and asides to Gayle, rather than Oprah,” the Harpo exec continued. “It made both Oprah and Gayle very uncomfortable, which may have been the idea. Oprah struck back by asking Michelle whether she and the president were still fighting a lot. Taken aback by such a personal question, Michelle stumbled, then finally managed to say that the marital arguing had been a ‘growth point’ in their relationship.” Months later, when Michelle announced she was going to devote herself to fighting childhood obesity, Oprah offered to pitch in. She sent word to Michelle that she would love to have her on her TV show, where Michelle could tell millions of viewers about healthy nutrition for their children and families. Oprah also wanted to broadcast a show from the White House on the subject of exercise and weight control. Once again, Oprah waited in vain for a response from the White House. When an answer finally arrived, it was curt to the point of rudeness: “That wouldn’t fit into the first lady’s plans.” ACCORDING to sources, Oprah told Gayle King that she felt like getting Michelle on the phone and really letting her have it. Oprah raged: “Michelle hates fat people and doesn’t want me waddling around the White House!” Eventually, Gayle convinced Oprah to let her draft a diplomatic note expressing Oprah’s disappointment. But an Oprah aide, who was close to several members of the White House staff, learned that Michelle treated Gayle’s letter with scorn. “Oprah only wants to cash in, using the White House as a backdrop for her show to perk up her ratings,” Michelle was quoted as telling her staff. “Oprah, with her yo-yo dieting and huge girth, is a terrible role model. Kids will look at Oprah, who’s rich and famous and huge, and figure it’s OK to be fat.” Oprah went through the roof when she heard about Michelle’s remarks. “If Michelle thinks I need more fame and money,” said Oprah, “she’s nuts.” I ASKED a White House insider to explain Michelle’s animus toward Oprah. “Michelle is furious that her husband makes late-night calls to Oprah, seeking ideas on how to improve his sinking popularity,” the source told me. “Michelle thinks he should turn to her, not Oprah, for that kind of advice. What’s more, Michelle suspects that at one point Oprah secretly encouraged Hillary to consider a run against Barack in the 2012 Democratic primaries. “Barack just laughs at the idea and so does Oprah. But Michelle still believes Oprah has been getting too close to Hillary, whom Michelle calls ‘a snake.’ ” Nonetheless, the president pushed Michelle, against her will, to make a sort of peace with Oprah in order to get Oprah’s endorsement in 2012. Left with little choice, Michelle reluctantly agreed to tape an interview for one of the last Oprah TV shows, in May 2011. She sat there through much of the show with her arms folded in a defensive posture across her chest.

In his new book on Barack Obama titled “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House,”, Edward Klein caught up with Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s minister and friend for 20 years and pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago. The Hillary Clinton campaign nearly derailed Obama’s nomination by digging up Wright’s incendiary and controversial sermons at TUCC, including exhortations like, “God damn America!” and saying that 9/11 was nothing more than America’s chickens coming home to roost — among many other statements. Obama later proclaimed ignorance of Wright’s rants despite his long association with TUCC, and eventually renounced Wright and TUCC entirely when Wright wouldn’t keep his mouth shut. </p> <p>In his on-the-record interview with Klein, Wright claims that an Obama ally offered him $150,000 to keep his mouth shut and stop preaching until after the election, in excerpts published by the Read entire excerpt in today's New York Post: </p> <p>‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.” “Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright. “It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.” “He offered you money?” “Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.” “How much money did he offer you?” “One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said. </p> <p>According to Wright, Obama met personally with his then-pastor to ask him to do the same, although Obama apparently didn’t offer money for his silence. Wright’s version of the conversation makes it clear that Obama knew very well what his pastor had preached from the pulpit, and what he was likely to do once attention focused on him: </p> <p>“And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’ “And what did you say?” I asked. “I said, ‘I don’t see it that way. And anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?’ And he said, ‘Well, I wish you wouldn’t speak in public. The press is gonna eat you alive.’ “Barack said, ‘I’m sorry you don’t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is?’ And I said, ‘No, what’s my problem?’ And he said, ‘You have to tell the truth.’ I said, ‘That’s a good problem to have. That’s a good problem for all preachers to have. That’s why I could never be a politician.’ </p> <p>Sounds as though Obama knew full well what the “truth” was going to be once Wright started talking to the media, at least according to Wright’s version of events. Wright doesn’t have much to lose by telling the story now, but it should be noted in fairness that he might have a lot to gain. If the media takes more interest in Wright this time around, he’s going to be a pretty hot property for the next five months. I’d expect the White House to begin decrying distractions in the election campaign coverage in 5 … 4… 3 … 2 … Update: In retrospect, the Obama friend should be glad that Wright turned down his offer. It sounds a lot like the kind of thing that got John Edwards into trouble. </p> <p>Book: Slick Willie Says Amateur President Is 'Incompetent' Bill Clinton thought so little of President Obama — mocking him as an “amateur” — that he pressed his wife last summer to quit her job as secretary of state and challenge him in the primaries, a new book claims. “The country needs you!” the former president told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein’s new biography of Obama. The title of Klein’s explosive, unauthorized bio of Obama, “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” (Regnery Publishing), was taken directly from Bill Clinton’s bombshell criticism of the president, the author said. “Barack Obama,” Bill Clinton said, according to book excerpts, “is an amateur.” The withering criticism is incredible, given the fact that Bill Clinton is actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election. But according to the book, Bill Clinton unloaded on Obama and pressed Hillary to run against her boss during a gathering in the ex-president’s home office in Chappaqua last August that included longtime friends, Klein said. “The economy’s a mess, it’s dead flat. America has lost its Triple-A rating . . . You know better than Obama does,” Bill said. Bill Clinton insisted he had “no relationship” with Obama and had been consulted more frequently by his presidential successor, George W. Bush. Obama, Bill Clinton said, “doesn’t know how to be president” and is “incompetent.” But Hillary resisted the entreaties, according to two of the guests interviewed for the book. “Why risk everything now?” a skeptical Hillary told her husband, emphasizing that she wanted to leave a legacy as secretary of state. “Because,” Bill replied, his voice rising, “the country needs you!” “The country needs us!” added Bill. He later even joked about the prospect of having two Clinton presidential libraries — about the only time that Hillary cracked a smile. “I want my term at the State Department] to be an important one, and running away from it now would leave it as a footnote,” Hillary argued. She said she had the option of running again in 2016. But Bill wouldn’t let go. “I know you’re young enough!” Bill said, his voice booming. “That’s not what I’m worried about. I’m worried that I’m not young enough.” “I’m the highest-ranking member in Obama’s Cabinet. I eat breakfast with the guy every Thursday morning. What about loyalty, Bill? What about loyalty?” she responded. “Loyalty is a joke,’’ Bill shot back. “Loyalty doesn’t exist in politics.” Bill’s verbal battle with Hillary over the presidency, if anything, intensified when daughter Chelsea showed up with her husband, Marc Mezvinsky. “You deserve to be president,” Chelsea said. Bill was clearly pleased that Chelsea was on his side and vowed to have allies commission polls on a Hillary-Obama matchup. “What are you trying to do — force my hand?” Hillary said. “I want everyone to know how strong you poll,” Bill said. Hillary said, “Go ahead and knock yourself out.” The book’s explosive claims were shot down last night by spokesmen for the White House and the Clintons, who closed ranks last night. Bill Clinton’s spokesman Matt McKenna said the excerpts were “totally and completely false” and called Klein “a known liar.” Phillipe Reines, a spokesman for the secretary of state, noted that Hillary Clinton challenged the veracity of an earlier book Klein wrote about her, “Truth About Hillary.” White House spokesman Eric Schultz accused Klein of making up facts to sell books. “Nobody in their right mind would believe the nonsense in this one, especially since both Secretary Clinton and President Clinton have been loyal and supportive of the president at every turn.” Klein, a former editor of The New York Times Magazine and Newsweek, defended the book and his earlier one as factually sound. Meanwhile, today's daily presidential Rasmussen Poll shows Mitt Romney ahead of the president with 50 percent to Obama's 43 percent. It is the highest level of support the presumptive Republican nominee has received in his matchup with Obama as well as his largest lead. Edward Klein is a seven-time New York Times bestselling non-fiction author. He is also the former foreign editor of Newsweek and former editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine.

Will the Good Doctor Be Leaving the Country Soon? By Jarrett Stepman - In a revealing new book, The Amateur, author Edward Klein interviews President Barack Obama’s physician, Dr. David Scheiner, MD, who blasts the president’s health care plan and says that President Obama has an “academic detachment” that he could never break through. The doctor fears that if the health care plan is “the failure” he believes it will be, because of runaway costs and other problems, then any health reform will be set back for years to come. These are only a few of many reveals in Klein’s book, which makes the case that President Obama is not the political machine that people fear, but an amateur with a messianic complex who is completely out of his depth. In an exclusive preview of The Amateur by Human Events, Obama’s longtime physician reveals the lack of humanity in Obama’s character and carelessness with which he enacted the entirely politicized health insurance reform, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often called ObamaCare. Scheiner said that he believes the president miscalculated politically and that the health reform is ultimately doomed to fail. Worse, Scheiner doubts the character of a man who holds the highest and most influential office in America: “I think there is too much of the University of Chicago in him. By which I mean he’s academic, lacks passion and feeling, and doesn’t have the sense of humanity that I expected. ”The author, Klein, later in the book, compares Obama’s personality to early the 20th Century progressive president, Woodrow Wilson. By quoting the historian Forrest McDonald, who called Wilson’s perception of himself, “little short of Messianic,” Klein says that McDonald’s description of Wilson “fits Obama to a T.”The Amateur is set to be released Tuesday, May 15. It is published by Regnery Publishing, owned by Eagle Publishing, which also owns Human Events. In the chapter titled, “Hollow at the Core,” Obama’s former physician, who is a liberal, blasts the president for being uncaring, and perhaps worse, incompetent. “He has no cost control. There would be no effective cost control,” said Scheiner. “The Congressional Budget Office] said it’s going to be incredibly expensive… and the thing that I’m incredibly worried about is, if it is a failure that I think it will be, then health reform will be set back a long, long time. ”Scheiner said that the Obama administration neglected the advice of real physicians and instead decided to let political operatives craft Obama’s signature health care law. People like Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, were the kinds of medical people that the White House consulted. “Ezekiel is a medical oncologist, not a general physician,” said Scheiner. The point that Scheiner was trying to make is that President Obama lacks the ability to understand the critical role of the doctor to patient interaction just as he fails to connect to people personally. “My main objection to Barack Obama is that he is a great speaker and a lousy communicator. He isn’t getting his message across to people. He isn’t showing that he really cares. To this day he hasn’t communicated with members of Congress. ”Scheiner and other interviewees in The Amateur believe that President Obama has been a failure as a president, that he has failed to live up to the hype and has left a trail of betrayals in his wake. Although Obama and Scheiner did not have a close relationship, Scheiner was clearly upset by how he was cut off when Obama became president. “Obama invited his barber to his inauguration—his barber! But I wasn’t invited. Believe me, that hurt.” See Reader Comments (251+) </p> <p>BIO: Dr. David Scheiner (born 1938) is an American physician and activist, noted for his efforts in advocating for single-payer health care in the United States. He was United States President Barack Obama's personal physician from 1987 till 2008 while he was based in Chicago, and is a leading member of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP). Dr. Scheiner graduated from Princeton University and gained his M.D. degree from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, subsequent to which he practiced internal medicine in Chicago, Illinois for over 40 years with Hyde Park Associates, where his partner was Quentin Young, who had been personal physician to Martin Luther King, Jr. and has also similarly been instrumental in advocating single-payer health care. He currently still maintains his medical practice in Hyde Park and has worked for University of Chicago Hospitals and Rush University Medical Center. Scheiner has been a leading advocate of the single-payer health care system since its beginnings, along with his partner and good friend Quentin Young. In August 2009, Dr. Scheiner appeared on numerous television and media outlets, including CNN's Larry King Live, and Real Time with Bill Maher, appearing as a proponent of a single-payer government health system. </p> <p>Viral Video Essay: &quot;If I Wanted America to Fail&quot; — Free Market America's Agitprop with a Lesson IF - Heck, That's what I'M doing! </p> <p>A powerful YouTube video essay that premiered on Earth Day has since gone viral. At last count, over 2.1 million people have seen it, a number that grows daily. It started out being passed along by conservative Americans but has begun spreading into wider circles. This video, entitled, &quot;If I Wanted America to Fail&quot;, can be best described as a pithy five-minute antidote to Al Gore's ponderous and plodding film, &quot;An Inconvenient Truth.&quot; Written and narrated by a young Floridian political activist named Ryan Houck from an organization named Free Market America, the piece is loosely modeled on Paul Harvey's famous 1965 radio sermon &quot;If I Were the Devil.&quot; Free Market America’s provocative video-letter to America rings with the same thoughtful intensity. “If I wanted America to fail” addresses the perilous side-effects of hitching our nation’s economic well-being to the bandwagon of environmental extremism. But this is not a religious screed. It is an anti-religious screed. The religion it attacks is radical environmentalism, and the priesthood it exposes is the runaway bureaucracy of the regulatory state. The philosophy it proposes as an alternative is free market capitalism. America's Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, recently said Climate change has had a direct effect on national security. Think about this for a moment. What exactly does climate change have to do with American national security, especially since there is no evidence of any extraordinary indications that man is influencing the climate? The environmental fear mongers would have you believe sea levels are rising, the glaciers and Arctic ice pack are all melting, polar bears will become extinct, and mankind is doomed unless CO2 emissions are drastically reduced. It's all a myth. It's the greatest hoax ever perpetrated by those with an agenda to destroy capitalism and freedoms in America. Americans for Limited Government and Free Market America have come up with a video that describes perfectly the perilous side-effects of hitching our nation’s economic well-being to the bandwagon of environmental extremism. Take the time to listen to the short video. The text to the video is below. It is chilling to think that there are those in government willing to destroy America. WATCH &quot;If I Wanted America to Fail&quot; HERE - 4:39 or HERE </p> <p>&quot;If I wanted America to Fail&quot; by Ryan Houck (Free Market America) </p> <p>TO FOLLOW, NOT LEAD, TO SUFFER, NOT PROSPER, TO DESPAIR, NOT DREAM. I WOULD START WITH ENERGY. I’d cut off America’s supply of cheap, abundant energy. I couldn’t take it by force. So, I’d make Americans feel guilty for using the energy that heats their homes, fuels their cars, runs their businesses, and powers their economy. I’d make cheap energy expensive, so that expensive energy would seem cheap. I would empower unelected bureaucrats to all-but-outlaw America’s most abundant sources of energy. And after banning its use in America, I’d make it illegal for American companies to ship it overseas. If I wanted America to fail … I’d use our schools to teach one generation of Americans that our factories and our cars will cause a new Ice Age, and I’d muster a straight face so I could teach the next generation that they’re causing Global Warming. And when it’s cold out, I’d call it Climate Change instead. I’d imply that America’s cities and factories could run on wind power and wishes. I’d teach children how to ignore the hypocrisy of condemning logging, mining and farming — while having roofs over their heads, heat in their homes and food on their tables. I would never teach children that the free market is the only force in human history to uplift the poor, establish the middle class and create lasting prosperity. Instead, I’d demonize prosperity itself, so that they will not miss what they will never have. If I wanted America to fail … I would create countless new regulations and seldom cancel old ones. They would be so complicated that only bureaucrats, lawyers and lobbyists could understand them. That way small businesses with big ideas wouldn’t stand a chance – and I would never have to worry about another Thomas Edison, Henry Ford or Steve Jobs. I would ridicule as “Flat Earthers” those who urge us to lower energy costs by increasing supply. And when the evangelists of commonsense try to remind people about the law of supply and demand, I’d enlist a sympathetic media to drown them out. If I wanted America to fail … I would empower unaccountable bureaucracies seated in a distant capitol to bully Americans out of their dreams and their property rights. I’d send federal agents to raid guitar factories for using the wrong kind of wood; I’d force homeowners to tear down the homes they built on their own land. I’d make it almost impossible for farmers to farm, miners to mine, loggers to log, and builders to build. And because I don’t believe in free markets, I’d invent false ones. I’d devise fictitious products—like carbon credits—and trade them in imaginary markets. I’d convince people that this would create jobs and be good for the economy. If I wanted America to fail … For every concern, I’d invent a crisis; and for every crisis, I’d invent the cause; Like shutting down entire industries and killing tens of thousands of jobs in the name of saving spotted owls. And when everyone learned the stunning irony that the owls were victims of their larger cousins—and not people—it would already be decades too late. If I wanted America to fail … I’d make it easier to stop commerce than start it – easier to kill jobs than create them – more fashionable to resent success than to seek it. When industries seek to create jobs, I’d file lawsuits to stop them. And then I’d make taxpayers pay for my lawyers. If I wanted America to fail … I would transform the environmental agenda from a document of conservation to an economic suicide pact. I would concede entire industries to our economic rivals by imposing regulations that cost trillions. I would celebrate those who preach environmental austerity in public while indulging a lavish lifestyle in private. I’d convince Americans that Europe has it right, and America has it wrong. If I wanted America to fail … I would prey on the goodness and decency of ordinary Americans. I would only need to convince them … that all of this is for the greater good. If I wanted America to fail, I suppose I wouldn’t change a thing. </p> <p>NEWSBOY POST Initial Report: An Eyewitness Speaks Out About Andrew Breitbart’s Death Scene Update Follows] </p> <p>Los Angeles, CA — It was just after midnight when Christopher Lasseter was walking his little dog in Brentwood. He watched a man he now knows to be Andrew Breitbart crossing Barrington from the Brentwood Restaurant. Breitbart was walking without apparent distress in the direction of the Starbucks across the well-lit street. Once Breitbart stepped up on the curb, as Lasseter put it, “He fell hard like a sack of potatoes.” A man unknown to Lasseter called 911. The 911 operator told them to begin chest compressions on Beritbart until the police and paramedics arrived. The top left photo shows where Breitbart died on his back with his head close to the lamp post on the left and his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right. Lasseter described Breitbart’s skin color as bright red. I obtained the interview on video but it’s now property of TMZ.com so look for it over there. TMZ.com's Harvey Levin is a well-known liberal, and for unknown reasons, is sitting on the tape] I will post a link here once it’s available. Post was never followed up]. We will be waiting with bated breath for the Medical Examiner's and the Toxicology Reports to know exactly what cut a young man's life short. </p> <p> Breitbart’s skin color was described as bright red — Cyanide poisoning is known to cause this condition. The skin of a cyanide-poisoned person can sometimes be unusually pink or cherry-red because oxygen will stay in the blood and not get into the cells. The person may also breathe very fast and have either a very fast or very slow heartbeat. Sometimes the person's breath can smell like bitter almonds, though this can be difficult to detect. Cocaine or some other stimulant also might have caused his red coloration. It doesn't sound like the widely speculated heart attack. In those cases, the victim turns pale, ashen, or even bluish.] </p> <p>Update 2: Breitbart Witness Found: He Dropped Like Sack of Bricks; Died with a 'Thick White Band' Around His Forehead By Jerome R. Corsi - A man who witnessed the collapse of conservative media icon Andrew Breitbart, the founder of BigGovernment.com and other sites, said he collapsed like a “sack of bricks” and died with a “thick white band” around his forehead. The testimony comes from Christopher Lasseter, 26, who was walking his dog outside the Brentwood Restaurant and saw Breitbart leave the eatery, cross the street and fall to the ground on the opposite side of the street. On assignment from WND, Los Angeles private investigator Paul Huebl found Lasseter Tuesday evening. In a video provided to WND and posted on YouTube, Huebl filmed the inside of the Brentwood Restaurant, showing the bar where Breitbart was in conversation with a Los Angeles marketing executive and drank a glass of wine before leaving the restaurant to cross the street. Standing at the site where Breitbart died, Huebl conducted a videotaped interview with Lasseter. Lasseter reported he noticed a big thick band of blanched white skin around the top of Breitbart’s forehead, extending around the hairline to the back of Breitbart’s head, that “made me do a doubletake.” In the various reports of Breitbart’s death, WND is the first to report an eyewitness observed this thick white band around Breitbart’s forehead. “There was a thick white band around his forehead all the way around his hairline, bright red face, thick, thick white band – made me make a double take,” Lasseter said. He further described Breitbart’s face and skin as “bright red,” in a manner consistent with Huebl’s first interview with him, as Huebl initially reported on his blog. Lasseter said he knew Breitbart was dead as soon as he walked up and looked; he shook off any suggestion he suspected foul play in Breitbart’s death. At WND’s request, inquiries about the thick white band have been sent to noted board-certified forensic pathologists Michael Baden, former chief medical examiner for the city of New York, and Cyril Wecht, best known for his role as a critic of the Warren Commission’s conclusions in the JFK assassination; both Baden and Wecht have been responsive to WND-prompted inquiries in the Breitbart death. Furnished with a transcript from the Huebl videotaped interview with Lasseter, Baden and Wecht were asked, “Does the thick white band give a further clue as to the cause of death?” WND is waiting for Baden and Wecht to respond. As Lasseter described the sequence of events, Breitbart jay-walked across the street at an angle. Lasseter said he did not initially notice anything unusual about how Breitbart looked; he noted Breitbart was wearing a dress shirt, khaki pants, and a pair of Jack Purcell Converse shoes that Lasseter described as “preppy.” When Breitbart reached the curb across the street, Lasseter said he observed, “Breitbart took one step up onto the curb and dropped like a sack of bricks.” In response to Huebl’s question whether Breitbart said anything, Lasseter answered, “No. He was just growling, like a grumble as he passed away.” He also noted that Breitbart expelled his last breath with a “guttural sound from the bowels of his stomach that didn’t sound good.” Breitbart, according to Lasseter, was alone when he died. An unidentified man called “911&#8243; and administered CPR until the police arrived and took over; that is when Lasseter said he left. TMZ Suppresses Eyewitness Video: Huebl earlier sold a videotape of his first interview with Lasseter to TMZ.com. WND asked Casey Carver, a spokesperson for TMZ.com, how much TMZ.com paid for the video interview and why TMZ.com had decided not to air the interview with Lasseter that TMZ.com purchased from Huebl. Carver did not respond to WND’s inquiries. WND has previously reported that Ohio-based private investigator Susan Daniels recruited a local private investigator to find Lasseter. The California-based private investigator tried without success to find a cell phone or landline phone number for Lasseter. After determining that Lasseter lived with his parents, Thornton, 64, and Elaine, 56, at a Los Angeles address, the California-based private investigator visited the residence in person. But he was unable to make contact, and a voice recording identified the residents by names other than Christopher, Thornton, or Elaine. At WND’s request, Huebl returned to the scene of Breitbart’s death and waited until evening, to see if Lasseter would return, walking his dog. </p> <p>Update 1: Andrew Breitbart Drops Dead, L.A. Coroner's Assistant is Poisoned, and Now Sole Witness to Breitbart's Death Vanishes By Jerome R. Corsi - A private investigator has been unable to find the only eyewitness to the sudden death of media innovator and conservative activist Andrew Breitbart. The apparent disappearance of Christopher Lasseter, who says he saw Breitbart drop to the sidewalk in front of a restaurant, adds to the mystery surrounding Breitbart’s March 1 death. On the day the Los Angeles County coroner released Breitbart’s autopsy report, a photographic technician at the coroner’s office died suddenly of suspicious causes. In addition, at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., just three weeks before Breitbart’s death – where he promised to unveil “damning” new video evidence of Barack Obama’s radical past that would change the election – Breitbart gave WorldNetDaily details of his upcoming revelations. He claimed to WND that he had a video showing radical Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers and Barack Obama at Harvard planning revolution in the United States. But the video, aired just after he died, was of Obama introducing a radical Harvard professor, and the general response was flat. Filmmaker Steve Bannon, appointed executive chairman of the Breitbart News Network after Breitbart’s death, has insisted to WND that the media mogul died of natural causes and to suggest anything else is irresponsible. “Breitbart had an enlarged heart,” Bannon told WND. “He had been hospitalized for the problem last year and told to lose weight that he did not lose.” Bannon, formerly a Breitbart News Network board member, told WND that for months prior to his death, Breitbart had been working overtime to finalize a refinancing of his news agency. “He died of natural causes,” Bannon said. “The family wants the matter put to rest, and WND is beginning to irritate me suspecting foul play.” In addition to Bannon, Laurence Solov, formerly president and chief operating officer, was elevated after Breitbart’s death. Solov took Breitbart’s place as CEO. </p> <p>An Eyewitness Disappears: After recruiting the assistance of private investigators, WND found that Lasseter, the 26-year-old witness who saw Breitbart drop dead, is no longer residing at his last known address in California. At the request of WND, Ohio-based private investigator Susan Daniels recruited a California-based private investigator to find Lasseter. The local investigator tried without success to find a cell phone or landline phone number for Lasseter. After determining that Lasseter lived with his parents, Thornton, age 64, and Elaine, age 56, at a Los Angeles address, the investigator visited the residence in-person to see if he could make contact. During the visit, the investigator reported, no one picked up the phone when he dialed the Lasseter apartment number outside the building. But he was greeted by a voice recording that identified different people at the apartment by first name, with none of the names on the recording being Christopher, Thornton or Elaine. The investigator concluded Christopher Lasseter had “hunkered down” in what seemed to be an attempt to avoid further questioning. He was unsure Lasseter was still residing at the address and considered it possible that Lasseter had moved. On March 1, Crime File News reported Lasseter was walking his dog in Brentwood, Calif., when he saw Breitbart cross the street from the Brentwood Restaurant. Breitbart was walking without apparent distress when he stepped on the curb “and fell like a sack of potatoes,” Lasseter said. He noted that Breitbart’s skin color was bright red, which is not typically associated with heart attack victims. Paul Huebl, who writes for CrimeFileNews.com, reported April 22 that he interviewed Lasseter and added the detail that the witness was disturbed by Breitbart’s color. As a former Army medical corpsman, Huebl knew that most heart attack victims turned blue. </p> <p>Coroner’s Assistant Dies: On April 20, Los Angeles County Chief Coroner Craig Harvey released the autopsy report on Breitbart, listing the cause of death as heart failure resulting from an enlarged heart and some heart disease. Harvey noted no prescription or illegal drugs were detected and only a small amount of alcohol was found in Breitbart’s system at the time of death. While the coroner concluded no foul play was suspected, his report made no attempt to explain why Lasseter observed Breitbart’s skin was “bright red” at time of his death. </p> <p>Then, within hours of the release of Breitbart’s preliminary autopsy report, Michael Cormier, age 61, a forensic technician who worked as a photographer in the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, died suddenly from what is suspected to be arsenic poisoning. </p> <p>“At this point we haven’t ruled out foul play,” Los Angeles Police Lt. Alan Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times, referring to Cormier’s sudden death. “It’s one of the thing being considered. We are waiting for the coroner’s results.” </p> <p>A Video About Derrick Bell Airs: At CPAC Feb. 10, Breitbart told the influential audience of grass-roots supporters that he planned to do the vetting on Barack Obama that the mainstream media failed to do in 2008. He promised to begin releasing videos within a few weeks. “The videos are going to come out; the narrative is going to come out that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails back in the 1980s like Bill (Ayers) and Bernardine Dohrn, equally radical, who said one day we’re going to have the presidency.” Breitbart told WND at CPAC that the not-yet released videos included footage of Ayers and Obama openly discussing revolution while Obama was a student at Harvard Law School. The video released by Breitbart.com after Breitbart’s death, however, showed law student Obama embracing Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic with ties to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s radical pastor for 20 years in Chicago. “The video did not seem as earthshattering as Breitbart initially claimed it to be, just weeks before the 43-year-old unexpectedly passed away at his home last Thursday,” the New York Daily News observed. Bannon insisted to WND that the video released by Breitbart.com after Breitbart’s death was the film Breitbart referred to when speaking in February to CPAC. “There is no other footage,” Bannon insisted. “We were working on the Derrick Bell video when Breitbart died, and we released to the public the video we have.” However, in a contentious March 8 interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Breitbart.com Editor in Chief Joel Pollack said the Bell video was just “one of the materials Andrew Breitbart was talking about.” It was “not his final bombshell,” Pollack said. “This is the beginning of a vetting process that begins with Andrew Breitbart’s probe into Barack Obama’s time in Chicago and will continue,” he explained. On Feb. 5, Breitbart had dinner cooked by Ayers at the home of Ayers and Dohrn after Daily Caller publisher Tucker Carlson won a “Super Bowl Dinner” auctioned off by Ayers for $2,500. </p> <p>Jerome R.

One Thing — Following the Creation of Obama's Phony Past Can Get Very Confusing! </p> <p>THE CHARADE CONTINUES: Obama is supposedly pictured here with Genevieve Cook. But what's wrong with this picture? First, Obama's shoe size is 13 1/2, and even with a bad angle, do those feet look that large. Secondly, Obama's head is disproportionately way too large, which makes us believe this is a poor photoshop, which would be consistent with everything else we don't know about Obama. BTW, Obama is pictured above left with his Occidental College first adult love interest, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. And the beat goes on . . . </p> <p>By Jack Cashill - Within hours after Dylan Byers of Politico created a mini-firestorm on Wednesday with the article titled &quot;Obama: 'New York Girlfriend' Was Composite,&quot; David Graham of the Atlantic had all but smothered the flames with his article, &quot;Obama's Composite Girlfriend: How Politico and Drudge Created Fake News.&quot; Graham argued that since Obama owned up to using composite characters in the forward of the book in question, his 1995 memoir, &quot;Dreams from My Father&quot;, there was nothing shady about the practice. Not surprisingly, Graham overlooked the real problem. So did Byers. So did veteran Washington Post reporter David Maraniss, whose forthcoming book, &quot;Obama: The Story,&quot; ignited the controversy when it was excerpted in Vanity Fair. No, the real problem with Dreams is the inexcusable dishonesty throughout the book. The promiscuous use of composites is merely a symptom of the larger problem. In the Vanity Fair excerpt, Maraniss profiles two former Obama girlfriends, heretofore unknown to Obama fans. This is the real Genevieve Cook who became the make-believe &quot;Composite Girlfriend&quot; in Obama's memoir &quot;Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance&quot; which in all likelihood was written by Obama's terrorist mentor, Bill Ayers. The mainstream media has been on an &quot;Obama-had-girlfriends-in-his-past&quot; blitz for over a week now, but we don't think they have convinced many that Obama is a heterosexual. But the MSM made a good effort. </p> <p>One of them, the Australian Genevieve Cook (shown above) seems to have provided most of the grist for Obama's white &quot;mystery woman,&quot; the only girlfriend mentioned in Dreams -- and she only briefly. &quot;Like many characters in the memoir,&quot; says Maraniss of Cook, &quot; Obama] introduced her to advance a theme, another thread of thought in his musings about race.&quot; What Maraniss does not say, and may not know, is that most, if not all, of the dramatic racial moments in the book are fully manufactured. With the help of his muse and co-author, Bill Ayers, Obama wove a series of racial grievances into the narrative to toughen up Obama's life story. These stories aren't &quot;compressed,&quot; as Obama claims. They are contrived. In his own memoir, Fugitive Days, Ayers likewise shows a casual disdain for facts. &quot;Is this then the truth?&quot; he asks. &quot;Not exactly. Although it feels entirely honest to me.&quot; When lesser memoirists do the same -- James Frey of A Million Little Pieces fame comes quickly to mind -- they get trashed on national TV by Oprah. In the case of composite girl, for instance, Obama tells of how their relationship came to a bitter end over her failure to understand black angst. &quot;We had a big fight, right in front of the theater, writes Obama. &quot;When we got back to the car she started crying. She couldn't be black, she said.&quot; Cook denies that this ever happened. As Obama later explained to Maraniss, &quot;I thought that the anecdote] was a useful theme to make about sort of the interactions that I had in the relationships with white girlfriends.&quot; Frey felt much the same way. &quot;A memoir literally means my story. A memoir is a subjective retelling of events,&quot; he protested, adding, &quot;I never expected the book to come under the type of scrutiny that it has.&quot; When Obama used the theater story in Dreams, he never expected this kind of scrutiny, either. At the time, no one beyond his neighborhood knew who Obama was. Nor did Obama expect scrutiny when he shared in Dreams the following racial life lessons, all of which have since been proven false (For a fuller accounting, see Friday's WorldNetDaily): </p> <p>(1) As a nine year-old, he saw in Life magazine a story about a black man turned grotesquely white in a desperate chemical effort to lighten his appearance. Life never ran such an article. When challenged, Obama claimed that it was Ebony. Ebony ran no such article, either. (2) In his first days at his Hawaiian prep school, Obama shamefully rejects &quot;Coretta,&quot; the only other black student, lest he be tainted by her blackness. Obama biographer David Remnick found the girl. She had no such memory. &quot;He was my knight in shining armor,&quot; she gushed. In his book, &quot;A Kind and Just Parent,&quot; Ayers tells much the same story. He talks of a useful reading assignment about the travails of Clint, one of two black students in an otherwise all-white school, who rudely tries to distance himself from Marvin, the other black boy. Like Obama, Clint feels guilty on reflection. (3) After Columbia, Obama worked for what he describes in Dreams as &quot;a consulting house to multinational corporations.&quot; He observes, &quot;As far as I could tell I was the only black man in the company.&quot; In full grievance mode, he considers his unique status &quot;a source of shame.&quot; A former coworker (and fan) revealed Obama's account to be a &quot;serious exaggeration.&quot; It was not a multinational corporation, but a &quot;small company that published newsletters.&quot; Obama was not the only black. He did not, as claimed, have his own office, wear a jacket and tie, interview international businessmen, or write articles. (4) In Dreams, &quot;Frank,&quot; the real-life Communist Frank Marshall Davis, slams college education. &quot;Understand something, boy,&quot; he tells the college-bound Obama. You're not going to college to get educated. You're going there to get trained.&quot; Adds Frank, &quot;They'll train you so good, you'll start believing what they tell you about equal opportunity and the American way and all that shit.&quot; Davis would never say this. In his memoir, &quot;Livin the Blues&quot;, he tells of the richly rewarding years he spent at Kansas State University: its &quot;beautiful&quot; campus, its &quot;usually agreeable&quot; students, its &quot;excellent&quot; journalism department. Later, he would see open-minded white college students as the hope for America's racial future. His college poetry-reading tours on the mainland in 1973 and 1974 were huge successes. It was Ayers who had the grudge against orthodox education. &quot;Education is for self-activating explorers of life, for those who would challenge fate, for doers and activists, for citizens,&quot; he writes in his 1993 book &quot;To Teach.&quot; . &quot;Training,&quot; on the other hand, &quot;is for slaves, for loyal subjects, for tractable employees, for willing consumers, for obedient soldiers.&quot; Sound familiar? (5) In Dreams, the composite character &quot;Asante Moran&quot; tells Obama, &quot;The public school system is not about educating black children. Never has been. Inner-city schools are about social control. Period.&quot; Social control -- no surprise here -- is an Ayers obsession. &quot;The message to Black people was that at any moment and for any reason whatsoever your life or the lives of your loved ones could be randomly snuffed out,&quot; he writes in &quot;Fugitive Days&quot;. &quot;The intention was social control through random intimidation and unpredictable violence.&quot; (6) To shore up the black base in a book calculated to get Obama elected mayor of Chicago, Obama suggests that the mystery white woman was the only white woman he dated. &quot;There are several black ladies out there who've broken my heart just as good,&quot; Obama tells his half-sister Auma. This has yet to be proven false, but I doubt if even Maraniss will turn up any of these ladies. </p> <p>Although I believe Maraniss wrote the Obama book in good faith, too much of what he learned from these two women in question is too convenient. The events they &quot;remember&quot; fill holes in the Obama narrative much too neatly. Maraniss has been misled by useful memories of old Obama friends before. In fact, on the eve of the election in 2008, he misinterpreted one such memory so completely it may have saved Obama's campaign -- but more on this later. Given Obama's elusiveness, Maraniss should have been more on guard here. He should have asked out loud why he was allowed to &quot;find&quot; sources no one else, including Obama's most prominent biographer, David Remnick, had. When celebrity biographer Christopher Andersen went looking for the mystery woman post-election, he came up with nothing. &quot;No one,&quot; he writes in Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage&quot;, including his roommate and closest friend at the time, Siddiqi, knew of this mysterious lover's existence.&quot; Siddiqi apparently regained his memory. Maraniss writes, &quot;If Barack and Genevieve were in social occasions as a couple, it was almost always with the Pakistanis. ... Sohale Siddiqi was part of the crowd.&quot; Here is what I wrote about this narrative hole in my book &quot;Deconstructing Obama: Americas Postmodern President&quot;: &quot;Given Remnick's list of the allowable ways to interpret Dreams -- verifiable fact, recollection, recreation, invention, and artful shaping -- I choose 'D' for the mystery woman, 'invention.' In the absence of any contrary information, best evidence argues for a creation largely of Ayers' contrivance.&quot; Ayers' great lost love, Diana Oughton, a Weatherwoman killed in a 1970 bomb blast, matches the brief description of this woman in Dreams even better than Cook does, right down to the &quot;specks of green&quot; in her eyes and a multi-generational estate with a lake in the middle. &quot;The house was very old, her grandfather's house,&quot; Obama writes of his girlfriend's country home. &quot;He had inherited it from his grandfather.&quot; In real life, Oughton's father's grandfather built the main house on their estate, a 20-room Victorian mansion, which is now on the national historic register. Maraniss makes a point to establish that Cook and Obama visit a family house in the country in the fall. He concedes that it is not her father's house, but her stepfather's, and that Cook has &quot;flecks of brown, not green, in her hazel eyes,&quot; but otherwise Cook does seem to fill the bill. In its inimitably oily way, Media Matters noticed. The discovery of Cook, the reader is told, undermines &quot;one of the main pieces of 'evidence'&quot; in my book. Media Matters headlined its article, &quot;The Obama Ex-Girlfriend Conspiracy Inevitably Falls Apart.&quot; My suspicion is that Team Obama green-lit the Cook story expecting the Media Matters spin to prevail, not Politico's. The White House could not have been pleased with the results. All the e-mails I received were congratulatory. It should be noted too that Cook, an avid diarist, does not produce any diary entries to corroborate the trip to the country. At least, Maraniss does not share any. Nor is there a diary entry to back Cook's least credible recollection. In his memoir, Obama relates a preposterously detailed dream about his father that sets him on his quest to find his roots. &quot;Genevieve recalled the morning he awoke from that dream,&quot; writes Maraniss of a day thirty years prior. &quot;He woke up from that dream and started talking about it,&quot; Cook tells Maraniss. &quot;I think he was haunted.&quot; This memory is much too useful. It validates the legitimacy of Obama's quest and gives him full ownership of the book's thesis. Maraniss writes for the kind of audience that reads Vanity Fair. Most of them are barely aware that serious questions have been raised about Obama's identity, his origins, and the authorship of his two books. Maraniss makes no effort to enlighten them. Unwittingly or otherwise, he immunizes his audience against the charges that will continue to bubble up as we approach November. Alex McNear is a mother-of-one who now lives in Sag Harbor, New York. McNear told how she and Obama met and dated in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and how she later would marrry a Serbian boxer. </p> <p>Alex McNear (shown above), the second and lesser mystery girl, helps shore up the &quot;Obama as writer&quot; myth that got him get elected in 2008. McNear apparently knew Obama at Occidental College and reconnected with him when she spent the summer of 1982 in New York. Like Cook, she conveniently kept a &quot;lasting record&quot; of her relationship with Obama, McNear's in the form of 30-year-old letters. One of these letters from Obama, Maraniss reproduces at length. Here are some excerpts: </p> <p>Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he T. S. Eliot] accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality. Counter him with Yeats or Pound, who, arising from the same milieu, opted to support Hitler and Mussolini. ... but you're pretty pleased, and your stride gets lighter, the slumber slipping off behind you, into the wake of the past. </p> <p>Graham of the Atlantic dismisses Obama's youthful take on writer T.S. Eliot as &quot;awful, pretentious gibberish,&quot; and he is not far off the mark. But the letter leaves a different first impression on casual readers, as evidenced by this e-mail from a foreign correspondent supportive of my research: </p> <p>Jack, Reading Obama's letters quoted in the Vanity Fair article I wonder whether his share in the writing of Dreams was not bigger than you (and I) thought. I still think that the structure of the book points to Ayers as the main &quot;plotter&quot; and that he is responsible for ideas like having composite characters. He must have edited Obama's ramblings and improved on them. </p> <p>At first glance, I felt the same way this fellow did, and then I noticed a major red flag: the letter is entirely free of the problems with punctuation, noun-verb agreement, and participle use that dog Obama to this day. From Maraniss's account, Obama's would seem to have written the letter in his senior year at Columbia, the same year he wrote the one fully documented writing sample from that era, his 1,800-word article for the Columbia Sundial, Breaking the War Mentality (Barack Obama, circa 1983 at Columbia), Let me cite just a couple of quick samples from this article with commentary: The belief that moribund institutions, rather than individuals are at the root of the problem, keep SAM's energies alive. This is one of an incredible five sentences in the piece in which the noun and verb do not agree. This should read, &quot;The belief ... keeps SAM's energies alive.&quot; The random use of commas throws everything off. Plus, the word choice sucks all logic out of the sentence. The reader is told that these institutions are &quot;moribund&quot; -- that is, &quot;nearly dead.&quot; How their debilitated state keeps the &quot;energies&quot; of the Students Against Militarism (SAM) &quot;alive&quot; is not exactly clear. Regarding Columbia's possible compliance, one comment in particular hit upon an important point with the Solomon bill. The subject of &quot;hit upon,&quot; not an apt verb to begin with, should have been a person, not a &quot;comment.&quot; Obama did not understand participle use. What members of ARA and SAM try to do is infuse what they have learned about the current situation, bring the words of that formidable roster on the face of Butler Library, names like Thoreau, Jefferson, and Whitman, to bear on the twisted logic of which we are today a part. I went back and reread the hard copy on this sentence to make sure it had not been deformed when digitized. This, alas, reads as weirdly as written. &quot;Infuse&quot; is the wrong word. One infuses something &quot;into&quot; something else. There should be an &quot;and&quot; after &quot;situation,&quot; not a comma. Obama utterly mangles the &quot;bring to bear&quot; phase.&quot; It should read something like &quot;bring the words of those formidable men on the face of the Butler Library -- Thoreau, Jefferson, Whitman -- to bear.&quot; As to how or whether we are part of a &quot;twisted logic,&quot; I will leave that to the reader's imagination. These same grammatical problems surface in Obama's awkward 1988 article &quot;Why Organize&quot; and in a published letter on affirmative action he later wrote while a student at Harvard Law. They continue to show up in his spoken words today. The letter that Maraniss reproduces, by contrast, is exquisitely punctuated and free of all such errors. The author of the letter even uses his or her participles correctly. Given the questions around Obama's writing skills and the fact that Team Obama has been credibly accused of forging a birth certificate, Maraniss owes his reader some proof of this letter's legitimacy. He should tell us whether he saw a hard copy of the letter, whether it was typed or hand-written, and why it reads so much better than Obama's published work of the same period. Maraniss has been down this road before. In a lengthy biographical piece on Obama for the Washington Post in August 2008, Maraniss mistakenly shored up the myth of a happy little Obama family, the myth on which Obama built his candidacy. Maraniss did so by relying on the testimony of Susan Botkin, a childhood friend of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham. In the process, he made an amateurish botch of the timeline of Obama's early years. As Maraniss acknowledges, Obama Sr. left Hawaii for the mainland and ultimately Harvard in June 1962. Maraniss implies that the family had been living together since Obama's birth in August 1961. Based on Botkin's testimony, Maraniss contends that Dunham stopped by Seattle in the fall of 1962 on her way to visit her presumed husband at Harvard. Botkin reportedly tells Maraniss, &quot; She said] he had transferred to grad school and she was going to join him.&quot; Maraniss adds, &quot;But as Botkin and others later remembered it, something happened in Cambridge, and Stanley Ann returned to Seattle. They saw her a few more times, and they thought she even tried to enroll in classes at the University of Washington, before she packed up and returned to Hawaii.&quot; Other earlier interviews with Botkin, one of which was posted online, yield a much clearer picture. In these, Ann had come to visit &quot;briefly&quot; with Barry at Botkin's family home. Botkin placed the time as &quot;a late August afternoon&quot; in 1961 &quot;when Barry was just a few weeks old,&quot; and she claimed to have changed Barry's diaper. In April 2008, Botkin told the Seattle Times that Ann was excited about her husband's plans to return not to Harvard, but to Kenya. Botkin said the same thing to writer Michael Patrick Leahy, who interviewed her early in the summer of 2008. Here, too, Botkin adds a clarifying detail: &quot; Dunham] left Hawaii] just as soon she had clearance from her doctor to travel with her new baby.&quot; As Botkin acknowledged in several interviews, she never saw her friend again. The visit at Botkin's mother's house had to be in 1961, a year before Barack Sr. left for Harvard. Dunham arrived in Seattle in August 1961 and stayed for a year, enrolling at the University of Washington. Obama would not see Obama Sr. until he was ten. What Maraniss needs to do is explain whether he was misled by Botkin or whether he willfully misinterpreted what she told him. He also should reveal whether he actually saw the letters that Dunham allegedly sent Botkin detailing her romance with Obama Sr., the only such proof of the same. If Maraniss can correct the record on Obama's origins and tell us a little more about those heart-breaking &quot;black ladies out there,&quot; I may even buy the book. </p> <p>David Maraniss - Young Barack Obama in Love: A Girlfriend's Secret Diary BREAKING AWAY: Obama in New York’s Central Park while a student at Columbia University, to which he transferred as a junior in 1981. Six months after graduation he began a long romantic relationship with Genevieve, who, like him, kept a journal. </p> <p>This &quot;Vanity Fair&quot; piece is adapted from the book &quot;Barack Obama: The Story,&quot; by David Maraniss, to be published this month by Simon &amp; Schuster; © 2012 by the author.. </p> <p>Becoming Obama: When Barack Obama met Genevieve Cook in 1983 at a Christmas party in New York’s East Village, it was the start of his most serious romance yet. But as the 22-year-old Columbia grad began to shape his future, he was also struggling with his identity: American or international? Black or white? Drawing on conversations with both Cook and the president, David Maraniss, in an adaptation from his new Obama biography, has the untold story of the couple’s time together. </p> <p>Barack Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University in 1981, his junior year. Although he left Los Angeles with enough ambitious propulsion to carry him into a more active period, he instead receded into the most existentialist stretch of his life. As he put it himself dec­ades later during an interview in the Oval Office, “I was leading a very ascetic existence, way too serious for my own good.” In most outward ways, compared with what had come before, his life in New York was a minimalist one, without the sprawling cast of characters that had surrounded him at Oxy and in Hawaii and Indonesia. He felt no attachment to Columbia or to the first jobs he landed after graduation. But it would be a misreading to say that he was tamping down his ambitions during that period. Just the opposite, in fact. If anything, his sense of destiny deepened. He was conducting an intense debate with himself over his past, pres­ent, and future, an internal struggle that he shared with only a few close friends, including his girlfriends, Alex McNear and Genevieve Cook, who kept a lasting rec­ord, one in letters, the other in her journal. “Where Am I Going?” It is exponentially easier to look back at a life than to live it forward. In retrospect it becomes apparent that New York was crucial to Obama. If he had not quite found his place yet, he was learning in which directions not to go and how to avoid turns that would lead him off the path and into traps from which it would be hard to escape. Even when he was uncertain about much else, Obama seemed hyper-alert to avoiding a future he did not want. At age 20, Obama was a man of the world. He had never been to south-central Kansas or western Kenya, the homelands of his ancestors, yet his divided heritage from Africa and the American heartland had defined him from the beginning. He could not be of one place, rooted and provincial. From his years living in Indonesia, where he was fully immersed in Javanese schools and culture; from his adolescence in Hawaii, where he was in the polyglot sea of hapa and haole, Asians and islanders; from his mother’s long-term commitment to development work overseas; from his friendship with Pakistani students at Occidental and his extended visit to their country—from all of these he had experienced far more global diversity than the average college junior. He knew the ways of different cultures better than he knew himself. Obama’s first apartment in New York, which he shared with Phil Boerner, a friend from Oxy, was at 142 West 109th Street. Heat and hot water were scarce commodities. When the nights turned colder, the roommates took to sleeping bags for warmth and spent as little waking time in the apartment as possible, holing up in Butler Library, at 114th, parts of which were open all night. Some mornings, eager to flee their quarters, they walked to the corner of Broadway and 112th to eat at Tom’s Restaurant, the place immortalized later as the fictional Monk’s, a familiar meeting place for the characters on Seinfeld. A full breakfast went for $1.99. The loneliness of Obama’s New York existence emerged in his letters to Alex McNear, a young woman from Occidental who had enchanted Obama when she was co-editing the literary magazine Feast, and with whom he reconnected when she spent the summer of 1982 in New York. Alex had always been fond of Barry, as she called him, and “thought he was interesting in a very particular way. He really worked his way through an idea or question, turned it over, looked at it from all sides, and then he came to a precise and elegant conclusion.” Continued &gt; &gt; </p> <p>Related: David Maraniss discusses his biography of President Barack Obama—and his reaction to Genevieve Cook’s diaries being used—in a VF.com Q&amp;A. </p> <p>That Figures!

Continued &gt; &gt; </p> <p>F O R W A R D — New Obama Slogan Has Long Ties to Marxism, Socialism The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, &quot;Forward&quot; — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name &quot;Forward!&quot; or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called &quot;Forward (generic name of socialist publications). &quot;The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,&quot; the online encyclopedia explains. The slogan &quot;Forward!&quot; reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism. The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word &quot;Forward&quot; with the &quot;O&quot; having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning. There have been at least two radical-left publications named &quot;Vorwaerts&quot; (the German word for &quot;Forward&quot;). One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany's SDP, though that party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication. East Germany named its Army soccer club ASK Vorwaerts Berlin (later FC Vorwaerts Frankfort). Vladimir Lenin founded the publication &quot;Vpered&quot; (the Russian word for &quot;forward&quot;) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as &quot;Forward, Soviet&quot; (though also and more literally as &quot;Stride, Soviet&quot;). Conservative critics of the Obama administration have noted numerous ties to radicalism and socialists throughout Mr. Obama's history, from his first political campaign being launched from the living room of two former Weather Underground members, to appointing as green jobs czar Van Jones, a self-described communist. View Obama video launching &quot;Forward&quot; </p> <p>Obama Is Headed Anywhere but FORWARD. </p> <p>By David Limbaugh - You have to hand it to President Obama and his cabal of re-election strategists; they are masters of illusion. Their newly released Web video and its accompanying campaign slogan, &quot;Forward,&quot; are science fiction-level fantastical. We're all familiar with Obama's penchant for deflecting responsibility and blaming his policy failures on George W. Bush, but after more than three years in office for Obama, it has gone from childish mischief to juvenile delinquency. This is a question for Guinness: Has any other president run for re-election against the record of his retired predecessor? Indeed, Obama is still feeding us this dodge years beyond its spoil date, apparently hoping we won't realize we have salmonella until he's safely voted in to his second term. Watch the video. In the words of The Hill's John Easley, &quot;it blames GOP policies for the still-sluggish economy.&quot; It attempts to draw a clear dichotomy between the dark days of the last year of Bush's term and the glorious remedial reign of President Obama, which began in January 2009. The first period is depicted as one of excessive job losses, the housing and foreclosure crisis, the stock market free fall, and the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, with ominous images of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, the sinister masterminds of these disasters, strategically placed throughout, for maximum effect. The second period begins with the inauguration of President Obama, underscoring his heroic agenda -- the one Obama has cited in placing himself among the greatest American presidents -- the stimulus, the GM and Chrysler bailouts, financial reform, the repeal of &quot;don't ask, don't tell,&quot; bringing the Iraq War to a close and, of course, the killing of Osama bin Laden. Before the video ends, the video dutifully boasts about Obama's signature &quot;accomplishment,&quot; Obamacare, going so far as to include the controversial birth control mandate in his plus column. Likewise with his green energy policies. According to the video, the most polarizing chief executive in the history of the American presidency is not the cause of our current dreadful economic conditions, about which, in any event, the White House is mostly in denial, as we'll see. Nor is Obama to blame for our nearly unprecedented partisan acrimony. No, the root of our problems is obstructionist GOP Republicans, who -- along with their evil media mouthpieces Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck -- &quot;instead of working together to lift America up ... (have waged) a campaign to tear the president down.&quot; </p> <p>May 1st: The Origin of May Day OR Law Day, U.S.A. </p> <p>On May 1, 1776, Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt, established a secret society in Munich Bavaria known as the Order of the Illuminati. From that time until today, May Day, which has origins in ancient Rome, has been observed as an international holiday by Socialists, Communists, and by other so-called progressives. The modern origin of May Day is well known and is viewed as accepted history in Europe, yet the origins of May Day, which commemorates the founding of the Illuminati, is virtually unknown to Americans. Continued &gt; &gt; Law Day, U.S.A. On May 1 the United States celebrates Law Day, U.S.A.. It is meant to reflect on the role of law in the foundation of the country and to recognize its importance for society. Long before President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared May 1st to be Law Day, U.S.A., the first day of May was known as May Day: a day to remember the struggles of workers who were killed or oppressed in their fight for better wages and working conditions. Law Day was originally the idea of Charles S. Rhyne, Eisenhower's legal counsel for a time, who was serving in 1957-1958 as the president of the American Bar Association. To dissuade citizens from being inspired by the populist tones of May Day, Eisenhower proclaimed May 1 to be Law Day, U.S.A. in 1958. Its observance was later codified into law by Public Law 87-20 on April 7, 1961. In contrast, most countries celebrate May Day on the same date, as it is designated Labour Day or International Workers Day. Law Day, U.S.A., along with Loyalty Day, was created to counterbalance these celebrations, which were perceived as communist. On February 5, 1958, President Eisenhower recognized the first Law Day when he proclaimed that henceforth May 1 of each year would be Law Day. He stated “In a very real sense, the world no longer has a choice between force and law. If civilization is to survive it must choose the rule of law.” Also, See The Brief Origins of May Day </p> <p>Documentary: President's Father Not the Kenyan Barack Obama, Sr. — 2 Years of Research, Rare Photos Support Compelling Case Look-a-like animation of Obama and his dad, Frank Marshall Davis “Who’s your real Daddy?” is a question that remarkably continues to dog Barack Obama, even as he proceeds into his fourth year as president. With the release this July of Joel Gilbert’s full-length documentary, “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception,” the mystery deepens regarding who Obama really is. “The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama’s deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency,” Gilbert told WND. Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president’s father. Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama. “I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama,” Gilbert said. “How could this be?” Gilbert launched into what became two years of research during which he conducted interviews and discovered rare film footage and photos. “I unearthed two film archives of Frank Marshall Davis, one from 1973, the other from 1987, as well as Davis’ photo collection,” he explained. “I then acquired 500 copies of the Honolulu Record, the communist-run newspaper where Davis wrote a weekly political column for eight years.” Gilbert’s research turned shocking when he obtained seven indecent photos of Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, at Frank Marshall Davis’ house, suggesting an intimate connection between Dunham and Davis. “I was not happy to include these racy photos in the film but found it necessary to substantiate the intimate relationship between the two,” he said. “Those photos ended up in a men’s mail-order catalog of nude women, likely sold to them by Davis. I placed black bars on parts of the photos to be respectful.” To establish the foundation for the photos, Gilbert documented that Davis was one of the founders of a photography club in Chicago, known as the “Lens Camera Club,” and that he specialized in nude photographs. See Trailer for “Dreams from My Real Father” - 2:49 Later in life, Davis also penned a scurrilous, autobiographical sex novel, titled “Sex Rebel: Black,” in which he detailed an illicit sexual relationship with an underage woman named “Anne.” Gilbert believes the name was a thin disguise for Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham. Gilbert reconstructs Obama’s autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” and concludes that the tale of the goat-herding father from Kenya is a cover story, concocted to mask an inconvenient pregnancy. The truth, Gilbert argues, is that Barack Obama II was born from the illicit sexual relationship that rebellious teenager Ann Dunham began with Davis after her parents forced her to move to Hawaii. Gilbert believes that when Dunham first arrived in Hawaii after graduating from high school, she used the sexual relationship with Davis to act out her frustration that her parents would not permit her to fulfill her wish to attend the University of Washington in Seattle with her Mercer Island High School friends. In 2010, Gilbert wrote and directed a film titled “Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad’s Coming War and Obama’s Politics of Defeat.” “Dreams from My Real Father” will be released this summer, with screenings in theaters across the country currently in the planning process. Communist Roots The FBI had Davis under surveillance for 19 years, monitoring his support of the Communist Party both in Chicago and in Hawaii. Gilbert portrays Obama as a “Red Diaper Baby,” a phenomenon among the radical left, referred to as “hand-me-down Marxism,” in which children of radical parents grow up to be radicals. Such was the case with much of the leadership of Students for a Democratic Society and the Weather Underground, including Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod, who was born to a mother who wrote for a communist newspaper in New York City. “Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, he would bring people together, so it went,” Gilbert explained. “While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide an agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.” What Gilbert presents is a direct challenge to the official narrative, arguing it is more likely President Obama has a deeply disturbing family background and a hidden Marxist agenda. “Unfortunately, Obama’s style is to minimize, misdirect, and outright lie about damaging information about his past,” Gilbert said. “I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America.” In writing his autobiography, Obama masked his relationship with Davis, naming him only as “Frank,” a friend of his grandfather who “lived in a dilapidated house in a run-down section of Waikiki.” Gerald Horne, a contributing editor to “Public Affairs,” an openly Marxist political review, made the first positive identification of “Frank” as Frank Marshall Davis. In March 2007, Horne gave a speech at New York University on the occasion of the Communist Party USA archive being placed at an NYU library. In that speech, Horne discussed Davis, noting that Davis, who was born in Kansas and lived much of his adult life in Chicago, had moved to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend, actor Paul Robeson. In the 1940s, Robeson was an outspoken critic of segregation and racial discrimination in the U.S., a strong advocate of the Soviet Union and a member of the Communist Party USA. Horne also documented Davis’s friendship with the Dunham family in Hawaii. “Eventually, Davis] befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas, and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who, retracing the steps of Davis, eventually decamped to Chicago.” Lorne further stated Davis was “a decisive influence in helping Obama] to find his present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anti-communist and the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation.” After Horne’s speech, the identity of “Frank” was never in doubt, nor his importance in the development of the young Barack Obama. On Dec. 5, 1956, Davis appeared in executive session before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee investigating “the scope of Soviet activity in the United States,” one of the McCarthy-era panels seeking to expose communists considered to be a security threat. Invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Davis refused to answer a direct question asking if he was then a communist. A year earlier, in 1955, a Commission on Subversive Activities organized by the government of the Territory of Hawaii identified Davis as a member of the Communist Party USA. The committee singled out for criticism several articles Davis published in the “Communist Honolulu Record” that were critical of the commission. May 19th Communist Organization Gilbert documents Obama’s association at Columbia University with what was known as the May 19th Communist Organization, an above-ground support group for the Weather Underground based in New York City from 1978 to 1985. “May 19th” carried out raucous anti-Apartheid and anti-Klan protests and operated a host of front organizations. At the time, Weather Underground co-founder William Ayers – Obama’s Chicago neighbor and colleague in education reform – wrote that May 19th provided “a sea for the guerrillas to swim in.” Some May 19th members committed acts of violence and terrorism, such as the 1981 Nanuet Brinks robbery and murders, the bombing of South African offices in 1981 and the U.S. Capitol bombing in 1983. “I spoke with a former FBI informant who told me the May 19th Communist Organization had a weapons training camp in the Catskill Mountains, run by former Black Panthers,” Gilbert told WND. “In addition, some May 19th members were sent to Cuba for several weeks each year with the Venceremos Brigade, a continuation of the SDS/Weather Underground program begun in the ’60s, for explosives training from Cuban intelligence, DGI.” Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon, Gilbert maintains. “It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii and has been quietly infiltrating the U.S. economy, universities and media for decades,” he explained. “To understand Obama’s plans for America, look no further than communist Frank Marshall Davis.” </p> <p>NEWSBOY POST INVESTIGATES OBAMA'S BIOLOGICAL FATHER In his memoir Barack Obama writes, &quot;Frank Marshall Davis would read us poetry when we stopped by his house, sharing whiskey with Gramps out of an empied jelly jar. As the night wore on, the two of them would solicit my help in composing dirty limericks.&quot; In his book &quot;Sex Rebel: Black&quot; (Homosexuality, Pediphilia and S &amp; M Rape), Davis brags of having sex with an underage girl in Hawaii named Ann! (Obama's mother was named Ann - Hmm?). Obama would have obviously been comfortable around perverts like Davis because from 6 to 10 years old in Indonesia Barack was cared for by an openly gay tranvestite (&quot;waria&quot; in Indonesian) by the name of Evie. Evie has contracted aids, is broke and living in a slum. Congratulations, America, we now have a President who was raised by a &quot;tranny nanny&quot; and mentored by a communist in Hawaii from age 10 to 18 who wrote a bisexual pornographic autobiography! What other President can say this, right???

We have determined that Obama has no birth certificate on record, and the one he submitted last year was a forged document. College Years: When he was 18 years-old Obama formally espoused Islam when he traveled to Pakistan. The New York Times reported that Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. During his years at Occidental College, Obama befriended Wahid Hamid, a fellow student who was an immigrant from Pakistan; and traveled with Obama spending “about three weeks” there, staying in Karachi with the family of a very special college friend shown here, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo. One thing that became apparent in NEWSBOY POST'S investigation of Obama's mysterious past became very obvious. Obama has bad taste when it comes to both women and men. </p> <p>On the Day of Ashura, a ritual called Tatbir (also here), was performed where a dagger was used to cut Obama's scalp from ear to ear — leaving that telltale, damning keloidal scar which runs from ear to his crown to his other ear (View more pics of these scars at bottom of this page).Tatbir is performed every year on the 10th day of Islamic month of Moharram (roughly month of November), known as the Day of Ashura. Newsboy Post has been expecting Obama to describe his 'Tatbir' experience; but until he does, we have pictured a Shi'ite Muslim child as he bleeds after he was cut on the head with a dagger during a ceremony marking Ashura. Ashura is the most important day in the Shi'ite calendar, and commemorates the death of &quot;Imam Hussein&quot;, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in the 7th century Battle of Kerbala. Afterwards, Obama dropped the useage of his Indonesian surnames, his adopted one, Barry Soetoro and Soebarakh (our favorite); and for the first time began going by his latest alias — Barack Hussein Obama II. After examining numerous photographs taken by official White House photojournalist Pete Souza, it appears extensive efforts are made to prevent any scar-revealing photos from being released. Of interest to our investigators, is the appointment of Arun S. Chaudhary; a trusted Pakistani Muslim slugged the &quot;YouTube Guru,&quot; who produces all White House in-house propaganda videos and who we feel is instrumental in the video scrubbing of the head scar. We're also looking into Obama's longtime barber, Zariff (uses one name), a Muslim who believes 9/11 was an inside job. And despite Obama's declared deep Christian devotion, he's shown his dedication to diversity by surrounding himself with Zariff and countless other Muslims in the White House. In summary, we are not sorry to report — the current American president is a fraud. </p> <p>Shocker! George Zimmerman Is Product of a Racially Mixed-Marriage; Closer to Being &quot;Son of Obama&quot; Than Trayvon Martin Is! Zimmerman Has Black Roots Through an Afro-Peruvian Maternal Grandmother Who Helped Raise Him — What Will Obama Say Now! Obama Now Says, &quot;If I Had a Son, He'd Look Like George&quot; </p> <p>(REUTERS) - The first time the dog ran free and cornered Shellie in their gated community in Sanford, Florida, George called the owner to complain. The second time, Big Boi frightened his mother-in-law's dog. Zimmerman called Seminole County Animal Services and bought pepper spray. The third time he saw the dog on the loose, he called again. An officer came to the house, county records show. &quot;Don't use pepper spray,&quot; he told the Zimmermans, according to a friend. &quot;It'll take two or three seconds to take effect, but a quarter second for the dog to jump you,&quot; he said. &quot;Get a gun.&quot; That November, the Zimmermans completed firearms training at a local lodge and received concealed-weapons gun permits. In early December, another source close to them told Reuters, the couple bought a pair of guns. George picked a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, a popular, lightweight weapon. By June 2011, Zimmerman's attention had shifted from a loose pit bull to a wave of robberies that rattled the community, called the Retreat at Twin Lakes. The homeowners association asked him to launch a neighborhood watch, and Zimmerman would begin to carry the Kel-Tec on his regular, dog-walking patrol - a violation of neighborhood watch guidelines but not a crime. Few of his closest neighbors knew he carried a gun - until two months ago. On February 26, George Zimmerman shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in what Zimmerman says was self-defense. The furor that ensued has consumed the country and prompted a re-examination of guns, race and self-defense laws enacted in nearly half the United States. During the time Zimmerman was in hiding, his detractors defined him as a vigilante who had decided Martin was suspicious merely because he was black. After Zimmerman was finally arrested on a charge of second-degree murder more than six weeks after the shooting, prosecutors portrayed him as a violent and angry man who disregarded authority by pursuing the 17-year-old. But a more nuanced portrait of Zimmerman has emerged from a Reuters investigation into Zimmerman's past and a series of incidents in the community in the months preceding the Martin shooting. Based on extensive interviews with relatives, friends, neighbors, schoolmates and co-workers of Zimmerman in two states, law enforcement officials, and reviews of court documents and police reports, the story sheds new light on the man at the center of one of the most controversial homicide cases in America. The 28-year-old insurance-fraud investigator comes from a deeply Catholic background and was taught in his early years to do right by those less fortunate. He was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather - the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him. A criminal justice student who aspired to become a judge, Zimmerman also concerned himself with the safety of his neighbors after a series of break-ins committed by young African-American men. Though civil rights demonstrators have argued Zimmerman should not have prejudged Martin, one black neighbor of the Zimmermans said recent history should be taken into account. &quot;Let's talk about the elephant in the room. I'm black, OK?&quot; the woman said, declining to be identified because she anticipated backlash due to her race. She leaned in to look a reporter directly in the eyes. &quot;There were black boys robbing houses in this neighborhood,&quot; she said. &quot;That's why George was suspicious of Trayvon Martin.&quot; </p> <p>&quot;MIXED&quot; HOUSEHOLD George Michael Zimmerman was born in 1983 to Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, the third of four children. Robert Zimmerman Sr. was a U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam in 1970, and was stationed at Fort Myer in Arlington, Virginia, in 1975 with Gladys Mesa's brother George. Zimmerman Sr. also served two tours in Korea, and spent the final 10 years of his 22-year military career in the Pentagon, working for the Department of Defense, a family member said. In his final years in Virginia before retiring to Florida, Robert Zimmerman served as a magistrate in Fairfax County's 19th Judicial District. Robert and Gladys met in January 1975, when George Mesa brought along his army buddy to his sister's birthday party. She was visiting from Peru, on vacation from her job there as a physical education teacher. Robert was a Baptist, Gladys was Catholic. They soon married, in a Catholic ceremony in Alexandria, and moved to nearby Manassas. Gladys came to lead a small but growing Catholic Hispanic enclave within the All Saints Catholic Church parish in the late 1970s, where she was involved in the church's outreach programs. Gladys would bring young George along with her on &quot;home visits&quot; to poor families, said a family friend, Teresa Post. &quot;It was part of their upbringing to know that there are people in need, people more in need than themselves,&quot; said Post, a Peruvian immigrant who lived with the Zimmermans for a time. Post recalls evening prayers before dinner in the ethnically diverse Zimmerman household, which included siblings Robert Jr., Grace, and Dawn. &quot;It wasn't only white or only Hispanic or only black - it was mixed,&quot; she said. Zimmerman's maternal grandmother, Cristina, who had lived with the Zimmermans since 1978, worked as a babysitter for years during Zimmerman's childhood. For several years she cared for two African-American girls who ate their meals at the Zimmerman house and went back and forth to school each day with the Zimmerman children. &quot;They were part of the household for years, until they were old enough to be on their own,&quot; Post said. Zimmerman served as an altar boy at All Saints from age 7 to 17, church members said. &quot;He wasn't the type where, you know, 'I'm being forced to do this,' and a dragging-his-feet Catholic,&quot; said Sandra Vega, who went to high school with George and his siblings. &quot;He was an altar boy for years, and then worked in the rectory too. He has a really good heart.&quot; George grew up bilingual, and by age 10 he was often called to the Haydon Elementary School principal's office to act as a translator between administrators and immigrant parents. At 14 he became obsessed with becoming a Marine, a relative said, joining the after-school ROTC program at Grace E. Metz Middle School and polishing his boots by night. At 15, he worked three part-time jobs - in a Mexican restaurant, for the rectory, and washing cars - on nights and weekends, to save up for a car. After graduating from Osbourn High School in 2001, Zimmerman moved to Lake Mary, Florida, a town neighboring Sanford. His parents purchased a retirement home there in 2002, in part to bring Cristina, who suffers from arthritis, to a warmer climate. </p> <p>YOUNG INSURANCE AGENT On his own at 18, George got a job at an insurance agency and began to take classes at night to earn a license to sell insurance. He grew friendly with a real estate agent named Lee Ann Benjamin, who shared office space in the building, and later her husband, John Donnelly, a Sanford attorney. &quot;George impressed me right off the bat as just a real go-getter,&quot; Donnelly said. &quot;He was working days and taking all these classes at night, passing all the insurance classes, not just for home insurance, but auto insurance and everything. He wanted to open his own office - and he did.&quot; In 2004, Zimmerman partnered with an African-American friend and opened up an Allstate insurance satellite office, Donnelly said. Then came 2005, and a series of troubles. Zimmerman's business failed, he was arrested, and he broke off an engagement with a woman who filed a restraining order against him. That July, Zimmerman was charged with resisting arrest, violence, and battery of an officer after shoving an undercover alcohol-control agent who was arresting an under-age friend of Zimmerman's at a bar. He avoided conviction by agreeing to participate in a pre-trial diversion program that included anger-management classes. In August, Zimmerman's fiancee at the time, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman reciprocated with his own order on the same grounds, and both orders were granted. The relationship ended. In 2007 he married Shellie Dean, a licensed cosmetologist, and in 2009 the couple rented a townhouse in the Retreat at Twin Lakes. Zimmerman had bounced from job to job for a couple of years, working at a car dealership and a mortgage company. At times, according to testimony from Shellie at a bond hearing for Zimmerman last week, the couple filed for unemployment benefits. Zimmerman enrolled in Seminole State College in 2009, and in December 2011 he was permitted to participate in a school graduation ceremony, despite being a course credit shy of his associate's degree in criminal justice. Zimmerman was completing that course credit when the shooting occurred. On March 22, nearly a month after the shooting and with the controversy by then swirling nationwide, the school issued a press release saying it was taking the &quot;unusual, but necessary&quot; step of withdrawing Zimmerman's enrollment, citing &quot;the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman.&quot; </p> <p>A NEIGHBORHOOD IN FEAR By the summer of 2011, Twin Lakes was experiencing a rash of burglaries and break-ins. Previously a family-friendly, first-time homeowner community, it was devastated by the recession that hit the Florida housing market, and transient renters began to occupy some of the 263 town houses in the complex. Vandalism and occasional drug activity were reported, and home values plunged. One resident who bought his home in 2006 for $250,000 said it was worth $80,000 today. At least eight burglaries were reported within Twin Lakes in the 14 months prior to the Trayvon Martin shooting, according to the Sanford Police Department. Yet in a series of interviews, Twin Lakes residents said dozens of reports of attempted break-ins and would-be burglars casing homes had created an atmosphere of growing fear in the neighborhood. In several of the incidents, witnesses identified the suspects to police as young black men. Twin Lakes is about 50 percent white, with an African-American and Hispanic population of about 20 percent each, roughly similar to the surrounding city of Sanford, according to U.S. Census data. One morning in July 2011, a black teenager walked up to Zimmerman's front porch and stole a bicycle, neighbors told Reuters. A police report was taken, though the bicycle was not recovered. But it was the August incursion into the home of Olivia Bertalan that really troubled the neighborhood, particularly Zimmerman. Shellie was home most days, taking online courses towards certification as a registered nurse. On August 3, Bertalan was at home with her infant son while her husband, Michael, was at work. She watched from a downstairs window, she said, as two black men repeatedly rang her doorbell and then entered through a sliding door at the back of the house. She ran upstairs, locked herself inside the boy's bedroom, and called a police dispatcher, whispering frantically. &quot;I said, 'What am I supposed to do? I hear them coming up the stairs!'&quot; she told Reuters. Bertalan tried to coo her crying child into silence and armed herself with a pair of rusty scissors. Police arrived just as the burglars - who had been trying to disconnect the couple's television - fled out a back door. Shellie Zimmerman saw a black male teen running through her backyard and reported it to police. After police left Bertalan, George Zimmerman arrived at the front door in a shirt and tie, she said. He gave her his contact numbers on an index card and invited her to visit his wife if she ever felt unsafe. He returned later and gave her a stronger lock to bolster the sliding door that had been forced open. &quot;He was so mellow and calm, very helpful and very, very sweet,&quot; she said last week. &quot;We didn't really know George at first, but after the break-in we talked to him on a daily basis. People were freaked out. It wasn't just George calling police ... we were calling police at least once a week.&quot; In September, a group of neighbors including Zimmerman approached the homeowners association with their concerns, she said. Zimmerman was asked to head up a new neighborhood watch. He agreed. </p> <p>&quot;PLEASE CONTACT OUR CAPTAIN&quot; Police had advised Bertalan to get a dog. She and her husband decided to move out instead, and left two days before the shooting. Zimmerman took the advice. &quot;He'd already had a mutt that he walked around the neighborhood every night - man, he loved that dog - but after that home invasion he also got a Rottweiler,&quot; said Jorge Rodriguez, a friend and neighbor of the Zimmermans. Around the same time, Zimmerman also gave Rodriguez and his wife, Audria, his contact information, so they could reach him day or night. Rodriguez showed the index card to Reuters. In neat cursive was a list of George and Shellie's home number and cell phones, as well as their emails. Less than two weeks later, another Twin Lakes home was burglarized, police reports show. Two weeks after that, a home under construction was vandalized. The Retreat at Twin Lakes e-newsletter for February 2012 noted: &quot;The Sanford PD has announced an increased patrol within our neighborhood ... during peak crime hours. &quot;If you've been a victim of a crime in the community, after calling police, please contact our captain, George Zimmerman.&quot; </p> <p>EMMANUEL BURGESS - SETTING THE STAGE On February 2, 2012, Zimmerman placed a call to Sanford police after spotting a young black man he recognized peering into the windows of a neighbor's empty home, according to several friends and neighbors. &quot;I don't know what he's doing. I don't want to approach him, personally,&quot; Zimmerman said in the call, which was recorded. The dispatcher advised him that a patrol car was on the way. By the time police arrived, according to the dispatch report, the suspect had fled. On February 6, the home of another Twin Lakes resident, Tatiana Demeacis, was burglarized. Two roofers working directly across the street said they saw two African-American men lingering in the yard at the time of the break-in. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. One of the roofers called police the next day after spotting one of the suspects among a group of male teenagers, three black and one white, on bicycles. Police found Demeacis's laptop in the backpack of 18-year-old Emmanuel Burgess, police reports show, and charged him with dealing in stolen property. Burgess was the same man Zimmerman had spotted on February 2. Burgess had committed a series of burglaries on the other side of town in 2008 and 2009, pleaded guilty to several, and spent all of 2010 incarcerated in a juvenile facility, his attorney said. He is now in jail on parole violations. Three days after Burgess was arrested, Zimmerman's grandmother was hospitalized for an infection, and the following week his father was also admitted for a heart condition. Zimmerman spent a number of those nights on a hospital room couch. Ten days after his father was hospitalized, Zimmerman noticed another young man in the neighborhood, acting in a way he found familiar, so he made another call to police. &quot;We've had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there's a real suspicious guy,&quot; Zimmerman said, as Trayvon Martin returned home from the store. The last time Zimmerman had called police, to report Burgess, he followed protocol and waited for police to arrive. They were too late, and Burgess got away. This time, Zimmerman was not so patient, and he disregarded police advice against pursuing Martin. &quot;These assholes,&quot; he muttered in an aside, &quot;they always get away.&quot; After the phone call ended, several minutes passed when the movements of Zimmerman and Martin remain a mystery. Moments later, Martin lay dead with a bullet in his chest. (Editing by David Adams, Daniel Trotta and Prudence Crowther) STFU, U POS JACKSON &amp; SHARPTON! Pic of Zimmerman's Bloodied Head Wounds! A Sanford police officer took this picture with an i-Phone just 3 minutes after the shooting Seminole County, FL - ABC News exclusively obtained a graphic photograph of George Zimmerman’s head covered in blood that was taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. The picture shows two cuts on the back of Zimmerman's head with blood trickling down. Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin. The photograph appears to be the first publicly disclosed piece of evidence that could help support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense. Sources tell ABC News that investigators have seen the photograph and are aware of the photographer’s story. The person who took the photograph told ABC News he heard Martin and Zimmerman fighting before the shooting and that after Martin was killed, Zimmerman asked the photographer to call Zimmerman’s wife, allegedly blurting out, “Man, just tell her I shot someone.” GPS and other data embedded in the photo shows it was taken at the scene with an iPhone just three minutes after the shooting, according to ABC News. ABC News said the photographer said gunpowder marks were clearly visible on Martin’s hooded sweatshirt. Zimmerman was treated at the scene, then transferred to the police station, where his wounds appear to be less visible in surveillance video. That picture could be part of the evidence shown to the judge in court Friday morning during Zimmerman's bond hearing. Meanwhile, Trayvon Martin's parents will come face to face for the first time with Zimmerman on Friday. Zimmerman is due in a Seminole County courtroom for a bond hearing at 9 a.m. After a week and a half behind bars, Zimmerman may be walking out of jail to await trial on a second-degree murder charge. The parents of 17-year-old Martin are expected in the courtroom during the bond hearing. Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara will likely argue to Judge Kenneth Lester that Zimmerman is not a flight risk, pointing to fact that Zimmerman turned himself in immediately when charges were filed. Judge Lester must decide if Zimmerman will be offered bond. &quot;He's evidenced his willingness to stay involved in the process. I think that works to his credit,&quot; said O'Mara. Zimmerman made his first appearance in court eight days ago. O'Mara said Zimmerman was hiding out in another state while the outrage built in the case because he was not arrested for well over a month after the shooting. &quot;He's tired. It's been a long period of time here. He's gone through some tribulations of his own,&quot; said O'Mara. WFTV learned that as the process for Zimmerman's trial ramps up, taxpayers will likely foot the bill for his defense. &quot;He is indigent for cost. He doesn't have any money and there's a process in place that allows the state to assist in paying costs, not attorney's fees,&quot; said O'Mara. Meanwhile, WFTV found out Zimmerman has asked to meet with Martin's parents. This comes just as Zimmerman may be let out of jail, causing Martin's parents and their lawyers to question his motive. &quot;He never once apologized on his website, on any of the voicemails he left his friends, and never expressed any remorse during police interviews,&quot; said Martin's family attorney Ben Crump. Crump said Friday is also expected to be an emotional day for Zimmerman's parents. It's the first time they'll be in the same room as Zimmerman since Martin's death. Crump also told CNN Thursday night that the timing of Zimmerman's request is &quot;self-serving.&quot; The hearing begins at 9 a.m. and WFTV will be in the courtroom and will have live coverage on Channel 9 WFTV and WFTV.com The city has security plans in place if Zimmerman does bond out of jail, but no one would go into any details. Former WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer will return to his role to provide in-depth analysis of the Zimmerman bond hearing. Sheaffer recently left WFTV to run for judge, but he later decided against running for family reasons.

See Trayvon Showing Off His Gold Grill — See Trayvon's Gangsta Tattoo A Livid Levin: How Could This Prosecutor Charge the Z-Man with Knowledge of These Head Injuries! Talk radio host Mark Levin says that his jaw dropped when finding out that Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey left out vital evidence in her affidavit that favors Zimmerman’s side of the story, the photos of his bleeding head wounds. Corey clearly had access to all of the evidence as she pushed for a 2nd degree murder charge and still left it out. Looking at everything public to date, including Florida law, Levin says this doesn’t even come close to a 2nd degree murder case and that Angela Corey is a disgrace for pushing for it in her affidavit while leaving out vital evidence. Listen to Levin's rant HERE Liberal Professor Dershowitz Blasts Zimmerman Prosecution: 'Not Only Immoral, But Stupid' Lilly white George Zimmerman surrounded by his same-complexioned cops and his albino honky Irish mick attorney With ABC News’ release of the George Zimmerman photo showing blood flowing freely from his head, the question becomes whether Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the case, had access to the photo before charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder. The arrest affidavit did not mention the photograph, or the bleeding, gashes, and bruises on Zimmermans’ head. Professor Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School stated upon release of the arrest affidavit that it was “so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge … everything in the affidavit is completely consistent with a defense of self-defense.” After the release of the photo, however, Dershowitz went much further, telling Breitbart News that if the prosecutors did have the photo and didn’t mention it in the affidavit, that would constitute a “grave ethical violation,” since affidavits are supposed to contain “all relevant information.” Dershowitz continued, “An affidavit that willfully misstates undisputed evidence known to the prosecution is not only unethical but borders on perjury because an affiant swears to tell not only the truth, but the whole truth, and suppressing an important part of the whole truth is a lie.&quot; When asked if it made a difference whether the prosecution had the bloody photograph at the time they charged Zimmerman, Dershowitz responded, “We do know that there were earlier photographs before the affidavit was done that strongly suggested blood on the back of the head, and we know the police had first access to him, so if there was blood they the prosecution] would know about it … &quot;I've had cases in Florida against prosecutors,” Dershowitz said, “and this is not the first time they have willfully omitted exculpatory evidence. It's a continuing problem. Here, it’s not only immoral, but stupid. The whole country is watching. What do they benefit from having half-truths in an affidavit?&quot; Dershowitz added, &quot;I'm not taking sides, but I'm insisting that both sides play by the rules, and so far the prosecution is not playing by the rules.&quot; Judge Grants Bail for George Zimmerman; Speaks for the First Time ; The Darkest White Man in America Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman has taken the witness stand during his bail hearing and apologized to the parents of Trayvon Martin for shooting their son. Zimmerman made the brief statement during Friday's hearing over whether he should be released on bail while he awaits trial on second-degree murder charges. Zimmerman told Martin's parents that he was &quot;sorry for the loss of your son.&quot; He said he didn't know that Martin was 17 and that he was unarmed during their altercation in a central Florida neighborhood. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set bail at $150,000. Watch clip of Zimmerman on stand George Zimmerman Makes Bail, Released from Jail Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman was released around midnight Monday from a county jail on $150,000 bail as he awaits his second-degree murder trial for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. The neighborhood watch volunteer was wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans and carrying a paper bag. He met a man in a white vehicle and drove away. His ultimate destination is being kept secret for his safety and it could be outside Florida. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said at a hearing Friday he cannot have any guns and must observe a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew. Zimmerman also surrendered his passport.... 'Beat Down' New Details: Zimmerman Told Cops Trayvon's Last Words Were 'Okay, You Got It' By Aram Roston - Last December, George Zimmerman hosted a small gathering at a clubhouse in Lake Mary, Florida. He invited family members and some close friends, and he made a brief speech. He wanted to share with them, he said, the news that he’d earned his associates degree in criminal justice. “He gathered us all together,” said a family friend who lives near Zimmerman’s parents and was present at the clubhouse that night, “to thank us for helping us define his life and what path he was going to take and who he was.” The friend, who asked not to be identified, told The Daily Beast that he and his wife pulled Zimmerman aside afterward and asked him about his career: What did he want to do with his life? Zimmerman responded that he had a specific goal. First, he would go to law school. After that, the friend said, “his ambition was to be a judge.” Now, Zimmerman is wearing a gray prison jumpsuit instead of black robes, as he faces second-degree murder charges in the Feb. 26 shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who was walking home through the housing complex where Zimmerman served as a neighborhood-watch captain. As the legal case against Zimmerman begins to grind forward, The Daily Beast has learned new details about Zimmerman’s accounts to various police agencies in the moments and days after the shooting. A law-enforcement source familiar with Zimmerman’s account, but not directly involved in the case, said that in his statement to police, he said Martin’s final words after being shot were, “Okay, you got it.” Locals in Sanford, the Orlando suburb where the shooting took place, and in nearby Lake Mary, where Zimmerman’s parents lived, appear to be exhaling after a month of national controversy and protests. “I hope and pray everything quiets down and we let the system do justice,” said Patricia Howard, a neighbor of Zimmerman’s parents. Another neighbor, who asked that her name not be used, said, “George is a good friend of ours, and what they say about it being about black versus white is not what it’s about.” She said Zimmerman’s parents had insisted Zimmerman had acted in self-defense. “What they told us,” the neighbor said, “is that he was reaching for his cell phone and Trayvon Martin saw his gun and reached for the gun and there was a struggle.” Zimmerman’s lawyer, Mark O’Mara, did not return calls seeking comment on the case. The law-enforcement source familiar with the case, who told The Daily Beast that he personally believes Zimmerman’s account, said Zimmerman has told three different law enforcement agencies his version of the events: the Sanford Police Department, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the U.S. Department of Justice. The source said Zimmerman has not talked about the case directly with the office of special prosecutor Angela Corey, which filed the murder charges against him on Apr. 11. A spokeswoman for the special prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the case. Martin’s family is skeptical of Zimmerman’s story, which they say is self-serving. Martin’s supporters say the case is simple: an armed white man, Zimmerman, was suspicious of an unarmed black teenager in his housing complex and then killed him with impunity. Zimmerman told police he didn’t realize that Martin was seriously injured, and that he lunged to get on top of him after the teenager fell to the ground. Since the days immediately after the shooting, news outlets have widely reported the 911 calls Zimmerman made, during which he told a police dispatcher that he would follow Martin, whom he described as suspicious. The police dispatcher said, “We don’t need you to do that.” As has been reported, Zimmerman told police officials that he lost sight of Martin and went around a townhouse to see where he was. Then he claimed Martin confronted him and punched him, knocking him down. According to The Daily Beast’s source, Zimmerman told police that when he was on the ground, Martin straddled him, striking him, and then tried to smother him. Zimmerman claimed that he yelled for help, and that various neighbors who peered out to see the fight from their backyards didn’t get involved. Zimmerman, the source said, told officers he was so paralyzed by fear that he initially forgot he had a gun, but he said that after Martin noticed his 9mm pistol, Zimmerman pulled it out of his belt holder and fired one round, a hollow-point—the round that killed Martin. (The autopsy report on Martin has not yet been released.) According to the source, Zimmerman told police that Martin’s last words after the shooting were, “Okay, you got it.” He said the phrase twice, then turned and fell face-down on the ground. (Martin’s father told reporters last month that police had told him his son’s last words were, “You got me.” Benjamin Crump, the family’s lawyer, said he doesn’t believe either account.) According to the source, Zimmerman told police he didn’t realize that Martin was seriously injured, and that he lunged to get on top of him after the teenager fell to the ground. Moments later, a police officer from Sanford arrived, placed him in handcuffs and took his gun. The law-enforcement source said Sanford police investigators interviewed Zimmerman three times about the shooting. The last time followed a walk-through of the shooting site. Afterward, three detectives grilled Zimmerman at police headquarters in their most thorough and hostile questioning, according to the source. They told Zimmerman they didn’t believe him, the source said, and tried to poke holes in his story. A spokesman for the Sanford Police Department declined to comment on the case. The precise details of that story are crucial to the case against Zimmerman. Perhaps the key issue will be who instigated the confrontation. The brief affidavit filed by the special prosecutor in support of the murder charge contends that Zimmerman provoked the encounter by following and confronting the teenager. Then there are the dramatic cries for help heard on the 911 call during the struggle. Martin’s mother said it was her son’s voice, and the special prosecutor in the case agrees. But Zimmerman’s supporters argue that the pleas came from him. The source familiar with the case said that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators had Zimmerman lie on his back in another location in an effort to recreate the position he said he had been in during the shooting. Then, the source said, investigators recorded Zimmerman as he shouted what had been heard on the 911 calls: cries such as, “Help me!” Crump said it was not clear that Martin threw the first punch but, argued that even if he did, Zimmerman’s actions launched the entire sequence of events. “Trayvon Martin had every right to stand his ground,” Crump said. “We believe that Trayvon went to his grave not knowing who this strange man was that was approaching and confronting him.” The Retreat at Twin Lakes, the gated complex where the shooting took place, is largely quiet now. With well-trimmed lawns between identical stucco townhomes, it appears almost tranquil. Zimmerman’s home is abandoned. During the month of protests, he was living in hiding, in a kind of self-imposed house arrest at a friend’s house. He shunned daylight hours, and would go out only in the dark to walk his dog, a Rottweiler named Oso. Now, Zimmerman remains in protective custody at Seminole County’s John E. Polk Correctional Facility. 1,258 Blacks Murdered by Blacks Since Trayvon Martin’s Death 58 Days Ago — Almost One Per Hour: FBI STATS The Lamestream Media Ignores These Facts Liberals fail at everything having to do with governance, except the worst aspects of it. One of the things they excel at, is the denial of obvious evils for the sake of distractions that serve their agenda. Let us consider the tragedy of Trayvon Martin. Shelby Steele brilliantly captures the mendacity of the left, quoted here: The civil rights community and the liberal media live by the poetic truth that America is still a reflexively racist society, and that this remains the great barrier to black equality. But this “truth” has a lot of lie in it. America has greatly evolved since the 1960s. There are no longer any respectable advocates of racial segregation. And blacks today are nine times more likely to be killed by other blacks than by whites. If Trayvon Martin was a victim of white racism (hard to conceive since the shooter is a mestizo of German and Peruvian ancestry), his murder would be an anomaly, not a commonplace. It would be a bizarre exception to the way so many young black males are murdered today. If there must be a generalization in all this—a call “to turn the moment into a movement” — it would have to be a movement against blacks who kill other blacks. The absurdity of Messrs. Jackson and Sharpton is that they want to make a movement out of an anomaly. Black teenagers today are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites. To be exact, the shameful truth is that 93% of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans. That is breathtakingly awful when you consider how incensed the African-American community is about the Trayvon tragedy, no matter what you believe about Zimmerman’s guilt. Let’s do the gruesome math, not out of morbidity, but because it manifests the incredible self-centered insanity of people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. 8,000-9,000 African-Americans are murdered each year. (See The Blaze article) See Statistics supplied by the Justice Department — See Statistics supplied by the Justice Department (PDF File) 93% of them by other African-Americans. That’s 7,905 (from average) That’s 21.65 murdered each day by other African-Americans, almost one black-on-black murder per hour. And these racebaiting culture-hustling microphone-pimps only get riled up when a “White Hispanic&quot; kills an African-American? It’s absolutely shameful. h/t lefty report FBI Race Facts Concerning Murder Statistics According to the FBI's most recent statistics, where available, twice as many whites are murdered by blacks, numerically, as blacks by whites in the U.S. In the case of 2010 (where reported), the murder numbers were 447 vs 218. This means, statistically, that a black man is well over 100% more likely to kill a white man than the other way around. Let's remember that blacks are a &quot;minority&quot; population, representing only 12.8% of the U.S. population. If we devise a &quot;killing per race as percentage of population ratio&quot; we get: 447/12.8 = Factor is 34.9 for blacks and 218/87.2 for whites = Factor is 2.5 for white on black murders. What that means is that an individual black man is 14 times, or 1500%, as likely to murder a white man than the other way around. See FBI Statistics HERE Andrew C. McCarthy: Analysis of the George Martin Case Affidavit I strongly disagree with David French’s analysis. I’m inclined, instead, to agree with commentators ranging from former Reagan Justice Department official Mark Levin to Harvard’s Alan Dershowitz that the affidavit is stunningly weak — “unethical,” as Prof. Dershowitz puts it. In fact, I go further (which, after nearly 20 years of writing and supervising the writing of complaint affidavits, I think I’m qualified to do). This affidavit is not law, it is agitprop: invoking, for example, the explosive term “profiled” but carefully avoiding any discussion of what it means and failing to note that (a) there is no evidence of racial profiling, and (b) absent an invidious racial component there is nothing wrong with profiling (indeed, we want police to do it so that innocent people don’t get hassled). A Few Points: (1) David makes much of the fact that Zimmerman may have continued to follow Martin despite a dispatcher’s admonition to the contrary. But a citizen engaged in innocent behavior (including investigating a potential crime) is not required to heed a dispatcher’s advice. If Martin had disregarded the direction of a police officer on the scene, that might be different. But no one is required to act on a dispatcher’s direction, even if it would be prudent to do so. Bad judgment is not a crime. (2) David observes that we haven’t been informed of Zimmerman’s statements to the police and then oddly suggests that this is a fact in the prosecutor’s favor. There are ambiguities in the complaint that more information could have cleared up. The prosecutor has more information. Yet, she chose to leave matters ambiguous. That strongly suggests the additional information would hurt the prosecution’s case — a suggestion that is bolstered by the affidavit’s self-serving omission of any mention of Zimmerman’s injuries (and, for that matter, by the fact that the prosecutor chose not to submit the case to a grand jury but, instead, unilaterally decided to charge base on ambiguous allegations). (3) David strangely describes the affidavit as “agnostic” on the matter of who initiated the “struggle.” But as we all know, prosecutors do not get to be agnostic. An ethical prosecutor does not charge unless he is personally convinced that the evidence establishes all key elements of the cited offense, as defined by the legislature. If he has such evidence, a probable cause affidavit is the vehicle for leveling allegations with clarity, not fudging them. (4) David uses the prosecutor’s fudging to conflate “confrontation” and “struggle” — as if we should now assume that Zimmerman initiated a physical assault on Martin. To the contrary, it is reasonable to assume that if the prosecutor had evidence that Zimmerman physically attacked Martin, she would say so. Instead, the prosecutor cagily says, “Zimmerman confronted Martin note the active voice is used when nothing criminal is claimed -- &quot;confronting&quot; someone is not a crime] and a struggle ensued” as if the struggle, presumably meaning the physical encounter, happened spontaneously -- no one is identified as initiating it]. If I ask, “What are you doing?” and you respond by punching me in the nose, and this leads us to grapple, my having confronted you does not alter the fact that you are responsible for the ensuing struggle. Again, we know that the prosecutor has an account from Zimmerman — and perhaps from other witnesses — and thus probably has a good idea of exactly how the physical altercation started. Yet, she knowingly withheld that information (in addition, again, to the information about injuries sustained by Zimmerman). (5) David wildly overestimates the likely impact of testimony from Martin’s mother to the effect that she recognizes her son’s voice on recorded cries for help. It is not a pleasant experience to cross-examine a mother, but experienced trial lawyers do it all the time and they tend to be very effective in highlighting the mother’s obvious bias without being disrespectful or insensitive. The affidavit says there were “numerous” calls for help, “some” of which were recorded. Neither the affidavit nor the mother’s information discounts to possibility that Zimmerman called for help. More importantly, unlike the audience for this affidavit, a trial jury would not get the mother’s information in a vacuum. Jurors would get to put the mother’s information in context with other relevant proof — evidence of Zimmerman’s injuries, probably Zimmerman’s testimony, accounts from other witnesses, and forensics about the relative positions the combatants were in when the fateful shot was fired. Again, it is more than a little curious that the prosecutor has declined to reveal any of that information even though she obviously has a lot of it. This shooting did not happen yesterday — it happened nearly two months ago. (6) Finally, David’s summation just confuses matters. He declares that “there’s probable cause for an arrest (and it’s really not close).” But prosecutors are not supposed to authorize arrests based on bromides like “When an armed man shoots an unarmed man … charges are expected and routine.” Prosecutors actually have to identify a specific charge and present evidence that establishes probable cause for each essential element the legislature has prescribed in defining that charge. Conveniently, David neglects to specify a Florida statute for which he thinks there is such patent probable cause. Maybe there is one — although, having perused them, I doubt it. But one thing I can say with confidence is that there is not probable cause in that affidavit for the charge the prosecutor has selected, second-degree murder. It requires proof of depraved indifference to human life. Nothing in the affidavit, and nothing we otherwise know about Zimmerman, indicates such a state of mind — and it’s really not close. If David had said there was arguably probable cause for a charge of manslaughter, I could at least have seen his point. Florida law makes causing the death of a person under the age of 18 manslaughter, provided there has been “culpable negligence.” It also criminalizes as manslaughter the “unnecessary killing” of a person in order to resist or prevent that person’s violation of law (e.g., the use of lethal force to repel a clearly non-lethal threat). Neither of these charges would have been a slam-dunk; indeed, they’d be losers if Zimmerman shot because he was justifiably in fear of his life. But certainly an arrest could be rationalized if you think, as David appears to think, that when an unarmed man has been killed by an armed man, a prosecutor should have wide latitude to bring charges on the less burdensome “probable cause” standard — with the understanding that, at the eventual trial, where the defendant will have the added protection of a higher “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard, a jury presented with all the evidence (not just the prosecutor’s unchallenged version) can sort out whether the use of force was justifiable. But you never get to that point unless the prosecutor can cite a charge for which he at least arguably has probable cause. You don’t get to make an arrest just because your intuition tells you what happened was really bad and screams out for an arrest. If I were a cynic, I’d say that an ambitious special prosecutor — exploiting the rabble-rousing of the U.S. attorney general and the racial grievance industry — filed an exceedingly serious charge for which she lacks evidence, second degree murder, in order to bask in the mob’s adulation while pressuring Zimmerman to plead guilty to a lesser charge, manslaughter, on which the special prosecutor runs a high risk of losing if Zimmerman forces a trial. So I’m sure glad I’m not a cynic. Justifiable Homicide Shooter George Zimmerman Overcharged with 2nd-Degree Murder in Death of Trayvon Martin — Riots Averted, Mob Pressure Worked as Expected! Florida Special Prosecutor Angela Corey A Florida special prosecutor has decided to charge neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, sources told ABC News. The decision by Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey is expected to be announced at a 6 p.m. news conference in Jacksonville, Fla. The prosecutor's ruling is certain to provoke controversy in Sanford, Fla., where shooting took place and across the country. Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Martin, who was 17 and black, on Feb. 26 after following the teenager for several minutes. The special prosecutor's ruling came one... CIRCUS TIME! Casey Anthony's Attorney, Mark O'Mara, Says Zimmerman Will Plead 'Not Guilty' &quot;Look at me, I'm no honky cracker, my mom's an Inca native-american from Peru, so stop this 'white' BS!&quot; ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The attorney for neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman says his client will plead not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin. Attorney Mark O'Mara asks that people not jump to conclusions about his client's guilt. He says he's &quot;hoping that the community will calm down&quot; now that charges have been filed and the case is moving forward. ZImmerman has acknowedged shooting Martin but says it was in self-defense after the two got into a fight on Feb. 26. The charge against ZImmerman was announced earlier Wednesday. An Obama Dictatorship in the Air? Specter Raised of National 'Emergency' Canceling Election By Robert Ringer - I began warning about Barack Obama’s dictatorial ambitions before he even won the 2008 presidential election. Now, finally, more people are beginning to take this possibility as a serious threat. Obama’s recent contention that it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to overrule congressional legislation had dictatorship written all over it. It was, quite obviously, an ignorant slip on his part. Rather than lashing out with absurd statements like this, the Marxmeister does much better when he follows the far-left playbook and innocently feigns indignation over anything that isn’t to his liking. Or when he vilifies his natural enemies – primarily Republicans, the “rich” and tea partiers. Targeting the Supreme Court showed a lack of self-discipline in adhering to his well-planned stealth-Marxism strategy. His angry, careless remark must have given chest pains to cheerleading, brainless Obamaviks everywhere. Then there’s poor Jay Carney, who appeared to be on the verge of crying while playing with his pacifier and trying to find a way to spin BHO’s idiotic misstatement. How in the world did Obama expect someone who looks 16 and talks like he’s 14 to convince the press that his boss, who supposedly taught constitutional law, was just kidding about the Supreme Court’s not having the power to overturn legislation it deems to be unconstitutional? I will say yet again what I have been saying for more than three years: If polls indicate that Obama is going to win the upcoming election, no problem. He’ll keep flashing that fake Barry Obama grin until Nov. 7, then move swiftly to begin unleashing a dictatorial full monty – consisting of more regulations, higher taxes and less freedom – that will shock all but his staunchest Marxist allies. Nothing will be off limits – a national police force, instant citizenship for all Third World people who want to come to America, forced equalization of income (except for Obama’s wealthy supporters), widespread use of tax audits to carry out vendettas against enemies of his administration, a virtual end to oil drilling, coal mining and gas exploration, suspension of habeas corpus, a new sedition act that will make it a crime to speak out against the government, the police, or the military … and much, much more. On the other hand, two or three months before the election, if the polls clearly show that Obama is going to go down in defeat, I believe there’s better than a 50-50 chance of a major “emergency” coincidentally making its appearance, convincingly manufactured in such a way as to cause the average entitlement junkie to agree that we must rally around the president and “postpone” the November elections. During a speech in Las Vegas, Obama, railing on about the woeful economy he inherited, said that “we can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will.” It was a clear message about his dictatorial intentions in his second term. Americans who find it difficult to break free of their normalcy bias should think about F. A. Hayek’s explanation, in “The Road to Serfdom,” of how countries travel the road leading from democracy to dictatorship: Hitler did not have to destroy democracy; he merely took advantage of the decay of democracy and at the critical moment obtained the support of many to whom, though they detested Hitler, he yet seemed the only man strong enough to get things done. Likewise, notwithstanding his cunning and cleverness, Chairman Obama didn’t walk into a finely tuned republic and reduce it to a redistribution-of-wealth democracy overnight. The reason he and his left-wing cronies have been able to violate the Constitution as though it didn’t exist is that they are merely taking advantage of the decay of our republic into a democracy – and the subsequent decay of our democracy – that was already present when they came to power. The Founding Fathers realized that a democracy is but a pretense for tyranny of the majority. Like all democracies before it, our democracy has destroyed itself through an excess of democracy. Majority rule has evolved into a free-for-all stampede of citizens appealing to politicians to give them more and more of the plunder. And there is never a shortage of vile human beings who are willing to resort to meaningless slogans like “hope and change” to win over the mindless masses. In his book “Keeping the Republic,” Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels brings the reader face to face with reality: History teaches us that all national greatness is temporary. Every great civilization – from the Roman Empire to the British Empire – has eventually collapsed. Americans have grown complacent in their position of dominance, but the term “the American Century” suggests how relatively brief this period of dominance has been. An ancient Roman would not have been impressed by a less-than-one-hundred-year run on top. Decline and fall are only occasionally foreseen by those en route to those destinations, and still less often forestalled by forceful and timely action. Denial of reality is a powerful human impulse, as is the tendency to mistake the status quo for the natural and inevitable order of things. Dictatorship and total collapse is in the air. I can feel it. That’s why it was encouraging when Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a decorated Army doctor, refused to go to Afghanistan unless Barack Obama would make his birth certificate public, which resulted in his serving six months in prison and being dishonorably discharged. But it’s far more discouraging that no other high-ranking officer has had the courage to join him. This is an important issue, because I continue to believe that if a dictatorship starts to emerge (many would argue that it already has), it may ultimately get down to a question of whether, at the moment of truth, the military will take orders from Barack Obama or, instead, side with American citizens. Those who chuckle at all this would do well to bone up on their history. Robert Ringer is a New York Times No. 1 best-selling author and host of the highly acclaimed &quot;Liberty Education Interview Series,&quot; which features interviews with top political, economic and social leaders/ George Zimmerman Releases Statement, Speaking for First Time About Trayvon Martin Case </p> <p>After weeks of silence and seclusion, George Zimmerman has released a public statement about the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, referring to incident as a &quot;life altering event,&quot; on his website, http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com/ In a statement on the site, which Zimmerman's attorneys have confirmed to ABC News belongs to him, the 28-year-old wrote, &quot;As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family, and ultimately my entire life.&quot; Zimmerman says his website gives him an outlet to speak directly to his supporters. On the site he created a PayPal account where he also asks supporters to donate to his legal fund and living expenses. However, the site has been unavailable intermittently throughout the day. These first public comments come as the special prosecutor investigating the shooting decided against empanelling a grand jury to seek an indictment against Zimmerman. The decision to forego a grand jury precludes a first-degree murder charge, but prosecutors insist that was never a viable option. Charges against Zimmerman, if filed, could come within days. &quot;The state must go forward and be able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt,&quot; said Angela Corey, the special prosecutor assigned to the case, in a statement. Corey, a state's attorney based in Jacksonville, took over the case three weeks after the February 26th shooting. Her team has had to re-investigate virtually the entire case from scratch after a string of alleged police missteps. Zimmerman told police that he shot the 17-year-old Miami teen in self-defense. His attorneys tell ABC News they plan on invoking Florida's controversial &quot;Stand Your Ground&quot; law, which would be a tough defense for Corey to overcome. &quot;It makes the case, in general, more difficult than a normal criminal case,&quot; Corey recently told ABC News. Hal Uhrig, Zimmerman's attorney, in a statement to ABC News called Corey a &quot;fair&quot; prosecutor adding &quot;We are hopeful she sees the clear evidence, applies the law and declines to prosecute.&quot; As Corey's investigation continues, Sanford remains a city on edge. Earlier protestors demanding Zimmerman's arrest blockaded the Sanford police department forcing its closure for several hours. Emergency operation centers opened in three counties in anticipation of possible unrest as the days continue to drag on without an arrest. &quot;Are we are a kindling box? Sure,&quot; said Sanford mayor Jeff Triplett in an interview Monday. &quot;But we plan for the worst and hope for the best… and so far all the protests so far have been absolutely peaceful&quot; In the first meeting of the Sanford city commissioners since the former police chief was publically rebuked via a vote of no confidence, tensions continued to simmer over how the city has handled the investigation and response. A black veteran yelled at commissioners, &quot;If Zimmerman don't get arrested, I really believe there's going to be some retaliation…because we failed to take responsibility in Sanford.&quot; The heated rhetoric forced one Zimmerman family member to lash out in a letter obtained by Daily Caller written to Attorney General Eric Holder. After citing the U.S. Department of Justice's published definition of a &quot;hate crime,&quot; the Zimmerman family member wrote that there is &quot;no other explanation for Holder's failure to authorize arrests of New Black Panther Party members other than the fact that Holder himself is black.&quot; As a city, state, and nation continue to fixate on this case, the Martin family says they remain hopeful that Zimmerman will be arrested. A statement from family attorney Benjamin Crump states that the family is &quot;hopeful that a decision will be reached very soon to arrest George Zimmerman and give Trayvon Martin's family the simple justice they have been seeking all along.&quot; </p> <p>Oklahoma Couple Had Wonderful 65-year Romance Until They Met Tyrone Nancy Strait Beaten, Raped and Killed in Home Invasion; Husband Bob Suffers a Broken Jaw, Broken Ribs in Attack — Does Obama Imagine Bob and Nancy Strait as His Parents? Will Sharpton, Jackson and the New Black Panthers Mobilize Their 'N-word Hate Mob' Over This Hideous Crime? </p> <p>Nancy and Bob Straits before Tyrone's invasion Obama Says, &quot;If I Had a Son, He'd Look Like Tyrone&quot; </p> <p>An 85-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and battered to death by a home invader who also shot her 90-year-old husband in the face with a BB gun. Nancy and Bob Strait, who had celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary in December, were discovered by their daughter at their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Both the pensioners were rushed to hospital where Mrs Strait, who was nearly blind, died from her injuries. Mr Strait, who served in the 101st Airborne Division in World War II, suffered a broken jaw, broken ribs and severe bleeding. He is in a serious condition in hospital. Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork in connection with the case. The Straits' distraught family today paid tribute to the pair, who grew up in poverty in rural Oklahoma during the Great Depression. They met each other on a blind date on Thanksgiving 1946, married a month later and went on to have six children, 18 grandchildren and about 50 great and great-great grandchildren. They had recently welcomed a great-great-great grandchild. Their daughters Lanora and Andra told Tulsa World that the couple were loving and generous people who would do anything for anyone. 'Dad never talked, and Mama never quit talking,' Lanora said. 'Whatever she did, it came from the heart,' Andra added. The pair could be found sitting on their porch singing and playing the guitar during warmer summer evenings. Mr Strait, who had worked for the oil derrick supply company Lee C. Moore before retirement, enjoyed woodwork while his wife loved making quilts and baking. They had both been struggling with health problems before the attack. Mr Strait had been diagnosed with a terminal kidney illness but had outlived the doctor's prognosis. 'He was living because Mother was alive,' Andra told Tulsa World. The couple had had food poisoning the week before the attack. 'There is no one else who has been through what he's been through who is still alive,' Lanora said of her father. 'We pray he doesn't remember.' Tulsa police believe burglars broke into the Straits' home either late Tuesday or early Wednesday last week. They were not found until the Wednesday evening. The home invaders made off with their Dodge Neon, a television and $200. Woodfork was later found hiding in a nearby house after a witness spotted the stolen vehicle being driven down the road. He is being held at Tulsa Jail without bail accused of first-degree murder, burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of armed robbery. 'This investigation is far from over,' Officer Jason Willingham of the Tulsa police department told Tulsa World. 'We've still got a lot of questions that we still need answered.' Mrs Strait's funeral will be on Friday. The family has set up a fund the Nancy Strait and Bob Strait Support Trust to help pay for the service and her husband's medical care. </p> <p>Community Leaders Call Shooting Spree a Hate Crime — 3 Dead, 2 Wounded in Tulsa Shooting Spree </p> <p>TULSA - Community leaders in North Tulsa are calling Friday morning's shooting spree a hate crime. The shooting spree left three people dead and two others seriously wounded. Police believe the victims were targeted at random. Authorities are focused on finding a white man driving a white pickup truck, who was seen in the area at the time of the shootings. &quot;If you systematically target black folks and that's all you shot, and you come to the north side of town and you're a white male, and we know he was a white male, then what is one left to believe?&quot; said Rev. Warren Blakney, president of the Tulsa chapter of the NAACP. &quot;This is an entire community that is being attacked right now,&quot; added Pastor Millard Jones. On Friday evening, Tulsa city councilor Jack Henderson met with church leaders and the NAACP to condemn the attack. The leaders also wanted to send a strong warning to residents in North Tulsa to be careful this holiday weekend. &quot;I think the precaution for the people is my main concern,&quot; said Henderson. &quot;I think people should not let some crazy, deranged person mess up their weekend, but at the same time they ought to be concerned this person is still loose.&quot; Henderson spoke with the mayor and police chief after learning about the shootings. &quot;This is something the City of Tulsa is not taking lightly. They want to get to the bottom of this like we do,&quot; he said. Community leaders also warned against anyone who might be thinking about taking the law into their own hands. &quot;We want our people to know there's no need to go out and try to take vengeance and become a vigilante. Just wait for the process and let's see what's going to happen,&quot; said Blakney. Police also caution pedestrians about approaching strange vehicles, especially white pickup trucks, who stop or pull over while they are walking. Anyone with information about these shootings, should call Crime Stoppers, or the homicide tip line at (918) 798-8477. </p> <p>Two Arrested in North Tulsa Shootings that Claimed Three Lives — Shooter Was Likely Avenging His Father's Murder NEWSBOY POST Notes: The shooter Jake England is characterized as &quot;white&quot; by the media to fit a juicy narrative; however, he's really &quot;native american and caucasian&quot; mix. A former neighbor claims he's also part &quot;black.&quot; And to make things more confusing, England claims he's &quot;white&quot; on his Facebook, which has since been pulled] </p> <p>Jake England and Alvin Watts </p> <p>Tulsa police have arrested two white men who are accused of killing three black residents and injuring two others in a shooting spree that authorities deemed &quot;unprecedented.&quot; Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, were arrested at 1:47 a.m. Sunday, about 48 hours after police began discovering gunshot victims in a three-mile area of north Tulsa. The pair were found together in a neighborhood near where the shootings occurred after police received several anonymous tips that England was the shooter, according to arrest reports. Police will release more information at a press conference 3 p.m. Sunday, Officer Jason Willingham said. Dannaer Fields, 49, Bobby Clark, 54 and William Allen, 31, were identified as those who died after three separate shootings Friday. Two other men were wounded in a fourth shooting but were expected to survive. They have not been identified. The arrests came less than 12 hours after authorities formed a task force called Operation Random Shooter, which consisted of 30 investigators with several agencies, including the FBI. At a press conference Saturday, Tulsa police Chief Chuck Jordan called the attacks vicious and cowardly and said the Tulsa Police Department was going to do whatever it takes to apprehend anyone involved. “Our sympathy goes out to the families of the victims and we hope that our efforts can bring some resolution and closure to these heinous acts,” police said in the press release Sunday. Community leaders in north Tulsa and a representative of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People said Friday that it seemed as though the shootings were racially-motivated. Jordan said Saturday that there was no evidence for that, but that it was a logical explanation. Police did not address the motivation for the shootings early Sunday. The two suspects are white. Carl England, who is identified on Jake England’s Facebook page as his father, was fatally shot April 5, 2010, at Comanche Park Apartments, 3608 N. Quaker Ave., about a quarter mile east of where Allen’s body was found, according to the Tulsa World's archives. The man arrested in the death, Pernell Demond Jefferson, was charged with pointing a firearm and is serving a prison sentence through October 2014, according to Department of Corrections records. Jefferson is black. Jake England makes several references to the two-year anniversary of his father’s death on his Facebook page, including a post 3:04 p.m. Thursday that says, “Today is two years that my dad has been gone shot by a f------ n----- it's hard not to go off between that and sheran I'm gone in the head.” England’s Facebook page indicates that his girlfriend, Sheran Hart Wilde, recently died. Her death notice was published Jan. 12 in the Tulsa World. Fields, Clark and Allen were likely killed early Friday, police said. Fields’ body was discovered about 1 a.m. in a yard in the 1000 block of East 51st Place North. Clark’s body was found about 1:50 a.m. in another yard the 300 block of West 63rd Street North and Allen’s body was found about 8:30 a.m. in the 800 block of East 36th Street North. The two men who survived were found in the street in the 1300 block of East 51st Place North three minutes after police found Fields’ body. Willingham said early Sunday that he could not confirm whether revenge was a motive, and police had previously said that the victims had no apparent connection to each other. At 10:15 p.m. Friday, Jake England posted on Facebook, “Chilling at that house people talking s--- on me for some s--- I didn't do ... it just mite be the time to call it quits. I hate to say it like that but I'm done if something does happen tonite be ready for another funeral later.” Alvin Watts, who is Jake England’s friend on Facebook, has frequently posted to England’s Facebook page since January. His posts appear intended to encourage England in the wake of the deaths in his life. Tulsa jail records list the same home address for Watts and England in the 2800 block of East 61st Street North. Authorities served a search warrant at the residence before further surveillance led them early Sunday to a neighborhood about a mile west, according to their arrest report. The location of their arrest as shown in their arrest report does not correspond to a specific building, according to Tulsa County property records. The report says they were found in the 6200 block of North Yorktown Avenue. Alvin Watts' Facebook page says he lives in Sperry and is from Muskogee. His arrest report lists his next of kin as a brother in Sperry. According to the arrest reports, several people who called the Tulsa Crime Commission's anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line reported that England was responsible for the shootings. Callers said he owned a white pickup and intended to burn it. Osage County deputies found a burned white pickup near 6000 N. Osage Drive about 6 p.m. Saturday, the reports say. The truck's registration checked to Jacob or Carl England. England and Watts were into the Tulsa Jail without bail on three complaints if first-degree murder, two complaints of shooting with intent to kill and a complaint of possession a firearm in commission of a felony. </p> <p>Tulsa Shooting Suspect Jake England Is an American Indian </p> <p>The Media Pulls a Zimmerman! Jake England, the suspect in the multiple shooting in Oklahoma identifies as an American Indian. The suspected shooter, Jacob Carl “Jake” England is listed as “American Indian or Alaskan Native” in a public record for a misdemeanor charges of driving under suspension in 2011. A message on his facebook page (which Facebook deleted just minutes ago) refers to him as having an “Indian heritage.” The woman who posted the message identifies herself as being a member of the Cherokee Indian tribe. Here is the case summary. The arresting officer initially put a dramatically different height and weight, along with listing him as “white.” However, when Jake went to his court date, his weight was lowered 30 pounds, his height 3 inches, and his race was changed to “American Indian or Alaskan Native.” Apparently the officer who initially arrested him did very shoddy job with the paperwork. Jake has strong American Indian facial features including epicanthic folds, high flaring cheek bones, sparse facial hair, and a weak chin. He is also listed at only 5’5&#8243; tall last October. He even has a mohawk. He attended Sperry High in Tulsa, which is listed as 37% American Indian. Jakes’ fiance Sheran Wilde committed suicide last January at age 24. She left behind three children. One of the kids appears to be Jake’s. Sheran probably has a lot of American Indian ancestry as well. Her father goes by the American Indian nickname “Cochise.” Jake’s sister also has pictures of herself online and has the same epicanthic fold and wide flaring cheek bones. American Indian Actor” Taylor Lautner. He is always referred to as an American Indian in the media. His Indian features are not as a strong as Jake England. Why doesn’t the media call him “White?” The media is gleefully calling him a “white man” for the same reason they called Zimmerman “a white man.” It fits the narrative that the media wants. Of course the main issue here is the fact that black on white violent crime is censored in the press. Any time a black is hurt by someone the media can claim is white it is a major nationwide media event. CofCC.org has compiled lists of confessions from media figures who admit to censoring black crime. At least three three white people have been murdered by blacks in Tulsa since last September. A fourth was horrifically beaten and left for death, but survived. 85 year old woman sexually assaulted and beaten to death by blacks. 90 year old husband survives attack. March 2012 Two white college students killed execution style by blacks in Tulsa. September 2011 </p> <p>Whitish Injun and His Wigger Kimosabe Confess to Deadly Tulsa Shootings — Jake England, Alvin Watts Accused in Deaths of 3 </p> <p>TULSA - Police documents show that the two suspects arrested in a shooting rampage that terrorized Tulsa, Okla.'s black community and left three people dead have confessed. The documents given to The Associated Press on Monday say 19-year-old Jake England confessed to shooting three people and 33-year-old Alvin Watts confessed to shooting two. The explanation for a shooting spree may lie in a killing that took place more than two years ago. England's father, Carl England, was fatally shot in 2010 by a man who had threatened his daughter and tried to kick in the door of her home. The man was black, and police say Jake England may have been seeking vengeance when he and his roommate shot five black people last week. </p> <p>THE HONKIFIER — How Media Changes a Dark Ethnic Person with Abundant Color into a White Person Without Any Color </p> <p>TOO LATE! Discredited NBC Fires Producer Who Created False Zimmerman Audio Breaking: NBC News has fired the producer it says was responsible for creating the deceptive audio recording of George Zimmerman communicating with a 9-1-1 operator, according to the New York Times. The network is still refusing to release the name of the producer, although according to Times reporter Brian Stelter, the producer is based in Miami and has worked there for a number of years. According to Stelter's network sources, these NBC a**holes are still insisting the deceptive edit was not done deliberatiely. The network has refused...

And the process ends with a finding of error, plus an apology. Here is the statement just issued by the network: During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers. That apology addresses the “Today” show’s failure to abridge accurately the conversation between Zimmerman and the dispatcher in this high-profile case. </p> <p>This is how the program portrayed a segment of that conversation: Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black. And here is how it actually went down: Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic? Zimmerman: He looks black. </p> <p>No matter how you feel about Zimmerman, that bit of tape editing was unfair to the truth and to Zimmerman’s reputation, such as it is. Reaction on Twitter and elsewhere to my previous post on this matter, was brutal toward NBC, with many comments suggesting the worst about the network’s motivations, reliability and so on. Does the statement adequately address those concerns? On the good front, it acknowledges the mistake and apologizes to viewers for the bad editing. It’s a forthright correction and spares us any excuses about the faulty portrayal. On the bad front, the statement is skimpy on the details on just how the mistake unfolded. Nor does it articulate an apology directly to George Zimmerman, the “viewer” who is most aggrieved by the screw-up. In light of all that’s happened, Zimmerman may be a tough person for a news network to apologize to, but that’s just the point: Apologies are hard. </p> <p>Close Up of George Zimmerman’s Head Shows a Head Wound? </p> <p>This still shot of a video frame clearly shows Zimmerman had a head wound, which is hard to see in the grainy video. The police report says that Zimmerman was bleeding from the nose and the back of the head. Zimmerman's head contusion is clearly visible and would have been treated with cyanoacrylate, the chemical found in medicinal super glue which was developed to retard injuries to wounded soldiers. It says his back was wet and covered with grass. There is nothing about “grass stains.” We can’t see from this video if there is any remaining blood on Zimmerman’s red and black fleece jacket or his dark grey shirt. This is quickly reaching a stage where the media malfeasance/coverup is worse than the initial incident. Instead of blocking Zimmerman’s head with that “ABCNews” banner, they should’ve used the “Obama” logo, killing two birds with one stone. They may not intend to incite a riot, but they do intend to “incite to vote for Obama.” Why Is the Only 'White Part' of Zimmerman Is His Nose? We Have the Answer. While cautioning that we aren’t able to see everything in this grainy video, there’s nothing in it that visibly indicates Zimmerman’s nose was broken — no apparent swelling or blood on his face or clothing. But EMT's had cleaned up his face at the scene according to the police report. EMT's commonly use a cotton swab with petroleum jelly to clean dried blood off a patient's face. The petroleum dressing left a film on Zimmerman's nose which picks up more light in the video, turning his nose white compared to the rest of this face. </p> <p>NEWSBOY POST Vehemently Condemns ABCCNNAPNYTCBSNBCWPMSNBC for Media Malfeasance &amp; Coverup!

Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman A new High Definition clip from the same video appears to make clear that Zimmerman had a gash, or wound of some kind on the back of his head. That would be totally consistent with his version of events on the night in question and opposite... ABC News Purposely Used Unnecessary Chyron to Cover Up Zimmerman's Head Contusion Get that totally unnecessary chyron out of there, ABC News! Why is your &quot;ABC NEWS EXCLUSIVE&quot; chyron covering up the back of George Zimmerman's head in the police surveillance video of him arriving at the police station soon after Trayvon Martin was killed in Sanford, Florida? There is a big controversy out there as to whether Zimmerman actually did suffer certain injuries including a bruise to the back of his head during the fight with Martin. You would think ABC news would allow an unobstructed view of the back of Zimmerman's head. Instead the head was covered for much of the time by a completely redundant chyron since there was already an unobtrusive ABC News label in the lower right of the screen. A suspicious mind might even think that ABC News was trying to cover something up with that annoying chyron. And one such person is Bob Owens, a Pajamas Media contributor, who makes just such an accusation in his personal blog. Ghoulish! CBS Airs Unsubstantial 'Heartstrings' Interview with Trayvon Martin's African-American Funeral Director CBS must have decided they were being shut-out in the hunt to hype the Trayvon Martin shooting, so they ghoulishly sought out the funeral director. He spends the majority of the time talking about an already dubious ABC video and speaking as a black man with children.I get that, but what does this have to do with what we actually know of Zimmerman's telling of what happened that night? He didn't claim that he beat up Trayvon Martin. He didn't say Martin was punching him repeatedly. He said Martin hit him in the face, he went down and Martin began banging his head into the ground. This is just one more instance of the media drumming up all the emotion they can around the case - most all of it pro-Martin, without offering any genuinely pertinent substance at all. The Florida funeral director who handled the burial of Trayvon Martin says there were no signs of a scuffle on the dead teen, contradicting the story of the man who claimed he killed Martin during a violent scuffle. Martin died of a gunshot, the only apparent injury says the funeral director. As for the voice the voice analysis news, see Tom Maguire for that analysis. My quick take is, he did not prove it wasn't Zimmerman screaming. He was unable to prove it was. There's an eyewitness that claims to have witnessed the pertinent portion of events. I'd want to know more about how that story holds up, than discussion of any voice analysis given the different circumstances in play for the two calls. Finally, the other voice analysis expert the Orlando Sentinel used doesn't accept the technology used by the first analyst. They didn't provide any discussion of why that is. I'm not sure this plays in court - if the eyewitness account is solid. The software compared that audio to Zimmerman's voice presumably from the Zimerman 911 call]. It returned a 48 percent match. Owen said to reach a positive match with audio of this quality, he'd expect higher than 90 percent. Sickening! ABC Outs 13 Year-Old African-American Boy; Endangers Key Witness to the Trayvon Martin Killing ABC Outs Child Witness — ABC News outed the 13 year-old minor who witnessed the Trayvon Martin killing. The minor said that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before the shooting. WRKO reported on the second witness who confirmed that Zimmerman was attacked. — ABC News reported: George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News. Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him. The new information is the most complete version yet of what Zimmerman claims happened on the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the teenager. In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old A***** B**** Newsboy Post will not reveal his name], told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman’s description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin. The initial police report noted that Zimmerman was bleeding from the back of the head and nose, and after medical attention it was decided that he was in good enough condition to travel in a police cruiser to the Sanford, Fla., police station for questioning. He was not arrested. Repulsive! NBC Investigating Themselves For a Selectively Edited Tape of 911 Call; Conversation Was Abridged Between Zimmerman and a Dispatcher Stay in hiding Zimmerman and SUE, BABY, SUE! </p> <p>The &quot;Today&quot; show version made shooter George Zimmerman appear to be engaged in racial profiling. NBC News said Saturday it is investigating why its Today show broadcast an edited version of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman the night he shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Both Today and MSNBC have broadcast an edited version of the call, which makes Zimmerman sound as if he were engaged in racial profiling. &quot;We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story,&quot; a spokeswoman for Today told The Hollywood Reporter Saturday. Last week, Today aired a segment that included Zimmerman's call as follows: &quot;This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.&quot; Today didn't inform its audience it had edited out the middle of the 911 call, which in reality went like this: Zimmerman: &quot;This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.&quot; 911 operator: &quot;Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?&quot; Zimmerman: &quot;He looks black.&quot; Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity aired the Today segment and excoriated NBC for its editing of the call. He characterized it as an attempt to inflame racial tensions in an already controversial case. On Friday, THR reported the incident and the Fox video went viral after it was posted on the Drudge Report and several other political sites, such as Real Clear Politics. </p> <p>FORGERY-GATE: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Expands Obama Probe to Hillary Supporters — Obama Campaign, DNC Accused of Voter Fraud in 2008 I remain silent, beautiful and America's most most revered woman. </p> <p>PHOENIX – Based on interviews WND conducted with insiders in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, Sheriff Joe Arpaio has decided to expand the scope of his law enforcement investigation into President Obama’s eligibility to include evidence and affidavits documenting alleged criminal activity by the Obama campaign in the 2008 Democratic Party primary race. Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano and Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas have given Arpaio’s investigators the names of dozens of Hillary Clinton supporters willing to come forward with evidence and affidavits. Among their claims is that the Clintons were the first to charge Obama is not a natural born citizen as required by Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution and that his birth certificate is a forgery. Moreover, the Hillary supporters identified by Viviano and Thomas have argued that the pattern of questionable and possibly illegal activity suggests that the alleged act of producing forged birth certificate documentation for Obama may have been merely more of the same. As WND reported, Viviano claims she heard Bill Clinton say that Obama is not eligible to be president. Help Sheriff Joe blow the lid off Obama’s fraud. Join the Cold Case Posse right now! ‘Not a Partisan Investigation’ Arpaio has insisted his investigation into Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president is not a partisan investigation. It was triggered, he noted, by a petition presented to him in August signed by some 250 members of the Surprise Tea Party in Surprise, Ariz. “I’m just doing what I took an oath of office to do – enforce the law,” Arpaio told a combined meeting of the Surprise Tea Party and the Sun City West Tea Party on Saturday attended by over 1,100 people. “I report to the people. I’m not accusing the president of any crime. We used no taxpayer money, and I listen to the complaints brought to me. I don’t throw citizen complaints in the wastebasket.” Arpaio said he began the investigation with the goal of proving Obama’s birth certificate legitimate. “I feel very strongly as the constitutional, chief law enforcement officer for this county,” Arpaio told the Tea Party audience. “I wanted to do everything to clear the president of the United States. I wanted to be the guy who stood up here and said that birth certificate is legitimate – leave the president alone. But it didn’t work out that way.” As WND reported, at a press conference March 1 in Phoenix, Arpaio announced his investigators have probable cause to believe Obama’s birth certificate and his Selective Service Registration form are forgeries. “The last I heard, if you forged documents, that’s a violation of law,” he quipped to the tea party audience. “If you did it, you’d be in trouble big time.” Chaos in 2008 Viviano, working with screenplay writer and director Gigi Gaston, produced in 2008 a documentary, “We Will Not Be Silenced,” based on interviews from participants in Democratic Party primary caucuses. They accuse the Obama administration of illegitimate and illegal acts, including threats, intimidation, lies, stolen documents, falsified documents and busing in voters in exchange for meals. “This documentary is about the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama Campaign,” Gaston and Viviano write on the “We Will Not Be Silenced 2008 website, which features a 40-minute preview of the documentary. “We want to be heard and let the country know how our party has sanctioned the actions of what we feel are Obama Campaign ‘Chicago Machine’ dirty politics. We believe this infamous campaign of ‘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.” Arpaio’s investigation has already uncovered evidence of intimidation by Obama supporters in an attempt to suppress media coverage of the birth certificate and eligibility issues. A memo published by the Hillary for President campaign March 4, 2008, noted the following specific accusations of irregularities and voter intimidation allegedly committed by the Obama campaign: Irregularities: Prematurely taking precinct convention packets by the Obama campaign; Voter intimidation: Lockout of Clinton caucus goers by the Obama campaign; and Obama supporters filling out precinct convention sign-in sheets during the day and submitting them as completed vote totals at caucuses, a practice explicitly forbidden by Democratic Party rules. The Clinton memo characterized the Obama campaign caucus practices as “undemocratic, probably illegal,” reflecting “a wanton disregard for the caucus process.” </p> <p>Hillary: Continuing Threat to Obama In the 2010 mid-term elections, the blue-collar voters who supported Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign abandoned the Democratic Party led by Obama. A Greenberg Quinlan Rosner poll after the November 2010 elections showed Democrats’ support from white, non-college-educated male voters dropped 12 percent from 2008, with only 29 percent of blue-collar men supporting the Democrats in 2010, down from 41 percent in 2008, as reported by TheHill.com. Last November, prominent Democratic pollsters Patrick Caddell and Douglas Schoen, published an editorial in the Wall Street Journal suggesting Obama should abandon his candidacy for re-election, stepping aside for “the one candidate who would become, by acclamation, the nominee of the Democratic Party: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.” Conceding that even with an all-time-low job approval rating and even worse ratings on handling the economy, Obama could “eke out” a victory in November 2012, Caddell and Schoen argued that the type of campaign required for Obama’s “political survival would make it almost impossible for him to govern – not only during the campaign, but throughout a second term.” The PUMA P.A.C. that emerged to oppose Obama and support Hillary in 2008 remains in existence. It describes itself as “a burgeoning group of bloggers, writers and citizens who are joining together to fight back against the corrupt leadership of the DNC, their ‘chosen’ candidate and the mainstream media that enables them.” In 2008, Obama won over women voters, with 56 percent voting for him, versus 49 percent of men, according to Woman’s Vote Watch at Rutgers University. The Obama campaign appears to have gained at least a temporary advantage among women, after charging that GOP presidential candidates, including Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, are “hostile to women” for their stand on contraceptives, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll released this week. According to the poll, Obama’s biggest advantage rests with women under 50, with six in 10 supporting him. Romney’s support in that demographic dropped to 30 percent, giving Obama a 2-to-1 advantage. Obama administration senior officials confirmed Monday that Clinton will not campaign for Obama to avoid making her position as secretary of state appear political, according to the Huffington Post. Clinton previously announced she plans to leave the State Department at the end of Obama’s current term. </p> <p>Read the preliminary findings of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation after six months investigating Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president in “A Question of Eligibility,” co-authored by Jerome Corsi and Mike Zullo. </p> <p>'The Radio of Record' — &quot;The Voice of Russia&quot; Reports on Obama Birth Forgery &quot;All the News That's Fit to Be Heard&quot; </p> <p>In Seeking Pravda (Truth), Americans Resort to Russian News Agencies for Their Scandal Information </p> <p>While many U.S. mainstream media outlets spike news about the Obama eligibility investigation, Russia’s government radio is keeping the world abreast of the scandal that has caused “the biggest censorship and blackout in the history of journalism.” The Voice of Russia – successor of Radio Moscow, the official station of the Soviet Union – published an exclusive interview with Sheriff Joe Arpaio March 26 titled, “Obama’s birth certificate may be forgery.” As WND reported, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced there is probable cause indicating the documents released by the White House last April purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card are actually forgeries. “Wherever I go, people commend me for doing this,” Arpaio told The Voice of Russia. “So, naturally this has been probably the biggest censorship and blackout in the history of journalism when no one from the national level will cover the story.” He continued, “You know, when I do something, whether it is inaudible] pink underwear or chain gangs, what I feed to inmates, that goes national. I’ve been on 4,000 international profiles, international and national, and yet this has been has been blacked out when I’m investigating this situation.” Arpaio’s investigation into Obama’s constitutional eligibility was rated last week by Internet ranking service Alexa.com as one of the most-read news stories in the entire world – due almost entirely to coverage by WND and the Drudge Report – not only the establishment press, but most of the “conservative” media as well, looked the other way. WND recently reported Russian news website Pravda published an accusation that the American media is “tame,” afraid to publish news and is “deliberately hiding the evidence published on the internet about President Obama's] defrauding of the American public and the deliberate evisceration of the Constitution of the United States.” However, in the recent The Voice of Russia interview, the Russian host argued that the Obama eligibility issue has been covered by “hundreds” of U.S. news outlets for years – after both Donald Trump and Arpaio brought up the question. “Well, I wish you would tell me who they are. I’m sure it’s not national. CBS, ABC, cable?” Arpaio asked. “Just show me who has been covering it. They haven’t been covering. I’m not going to get into inside sources that say that they don’t want to cover it, that’s another issue when we are talking about the media. But where is all the news? You are calling me, you are dealing with Russia, so I have to talk to Russia to get this story out.” Arpaio explained that he is on cable news outlets regularly to talk about other issues, but producers are not calling him to ask questions about the Cold Case Posse investigation. “You would think this will be an interest, especially the latest investigation on the Selective Service card that I just put out. … I don’t see any major outlets talking about it.” He noted that major media outlets showed up to his March 1 press conference merely to scoff at his efforts to hold Obama accountable. “They showed up to insult me and not look at the facts of the evidence that we put on the screen,” he said. “They didn’t question the evidence, which is interesting. They wanted to question what my motives were.” Arpaio refuted allegations that the Cold Case Posse investigation has anything to do with his own efforts to be re-elected. “I’ve been elected and re-elected five times,” he said. “I sure don’t need this to get elected this year, believe me. I can get elected on pink underwear that I make the inmates wear. I sure don’t need this issue. I’m doing something that I know might be rather controversial. But when people came to me and asked to look into it, why not give it to my volunteer posse? So, I did. And I told them I want you to clear the president on this birth certificate, but they’re coming up with evidence that’s not clearing the president. That’s the way it is in law enforcement.” Arpaio explained that any layperson could conclude that the birth certificate Obama presented online is a forgery. “Well, we’ve done our research,” he said. “I think any amateur could look at what we presented and come to the theory that it is not the true birth certificate.” Arpaio added, “You know, I don’t run Hawaii, so I presume that we will be writing to Hawaii. And you know, from Day 1 all I said – to clear the air, let’s look at the microfilm in Hawaii, if the president was born in that hospital, look at the microfilm and prove it, that’s all. We have two other twins that were born the day after and the day before. The microfilm shows that they were born, so let’s see the microfilm – forget the birth certificate, if that’s an argument. Show the microfilm, and that clears the air. Where is the microfilm?” </p> <p>Listen to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s interview with The Voice of Russia here.

American Truth-Seekers Ecstatic Over Intrepid Investigations by PRAVDA USA — Barack Obama Foreign Student; American Media Threatened into Silence On March 7th, 2012, Pravda called out the U.S. press for its deliberate neglect of the largest scandal in modern American history. Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio released credible forensic evidence that Barack Obama, presumed President of the United States, presented to the world a forged Birth Certificate on April 27th, 2011. Since then, the scandal has only expanded. Former United States Postal Service worker Allen Hulton has recently come forward with compelling testimony given under Oath, which leads to only one conclusion: Barack Obama attended College in the United States as a Foreign Student. In the summer of 2008 the presidential primary season was winding down, and America could not help but note the fervor a significant number of media personalities expressed while supporting the candidacy Barack Obama. Indeed, it was collectively decided within the liberal media, that Obama's associations with racist pastors and violent domestic terrorists was to be suppressed. The exposure of the &quot;Journolist&quot; email scandal in 2010 made this glaringly clear: Stories like Obama's ties to Reverend Jeremiah Wright Jr. of the Trinity United Church, and more relevant, to Bill Ayers and his radical past in the Weather Underground Organization were to remain largely un-reported and uninvestigated. Any realistic investigation into Barack Obama's background was to be minimized, inquiries eventually mocked, and investigators labeled racists. These tactics have isolated honest media who could and should have reported on these and other important stories yet have inexplicably remained silent. Now we know why. More on this in a moment. The Postman Retired United States Postal Worker Allen Hulton recently signed a sworn affidavit for the Maricopa County, Arizona Cold Case Posse convened by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, attesting under oath, to conversations with Mary Ayers, the mother of Bill Ayers. He made his testimony public in a three hour long taped interviewed on March 19th, 2012. Mr. Hutton, by signing an affidavit has subjected himself to laws regarding perjury, not something to be taken lightly as telling the truth is now for him a requirement of law. His testimony states Mary and Tom Ayers (Parents of Bill ''I don't regret setting bombs&quot; Ayers) were sponsoring Barack Obama as a foreign student, and financially supporting his education. This is a huge revelation on not one, but two separate fronts. Bill Ayers of dubious &quot;Weatherman&quot; fame, was not just &quot;a guy who lives in my neighborhood&quot;, as then candidate Obama brushed aside. The video linked here comes from a televised DNC Debate in the summer of 2008. As Hillary Clinton revealed then, Obama served in a paid position on the Woods Foundation with Bill Ayers and the two were involved in several projects dispersing millions of dollars over several years. Realistically, the Ayers family could be said to have adopted Barack Obama, if not as a son then certainly as a kindred Marxist spirit, and treated him to one of the finest educations possible. There is little doubt Mr. Obama has been less than honest with regard to the Ayers family and their significance in his life. As disingenuous as this is, it is by no means the most important revelation. If correct, and Obama was introduced to Hulton as a Foreign Student, this means Barack Hussein Obama would have been using a Foreign Passport to get and prove his foreign student status for entrance into Occidental College, Columbia, and later Harvard Universities. Because Hulton has signed an Affidavit, this cannot be disregarded as mere hearsay; it is instead evidentiary in nature. The significance of this development may not be immediately apparent until one recognizes American law regarding citizenship status. Citizenship laws as expressed in Title 8 of the United States Code states the use of a Foreign Passport constitutes adult recognition of relinquishment of American Citizenship: Investigation Continued &gt; &gt; </p> <p>Corrupt Media Found Guilty; Inflames Tensions by Intentionally Using Old Photos of Martin and Zimmerman </p> <p>Bottom right photo of Trayvon at 12-years-old, bottom left photo was not used by media at his mature current age of 17.

Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), former &quot;Defense Minster&quot; for the Black Panthers, on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a “hoodie,” then putting the hood on his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida. “Racial profiling has to stop,” Rush said. “Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.” Rush also put on sunglasses. The Illinois Democrat quoted the Bible while presiding officer Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the sergeant at arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber. “The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session,” Harper said after Rush left. “The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor.” Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have taken to the House floor for the last week to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old Neighborhood Watch patrolman who allegedly shot Martin last month in Florida. While these calls have escalated, Florida police have said some witnesses saw Martin beat Zimmerman before the shooting, and Zimmerman’s lawyers have said he acted in self-defense. Zimmerman said he shot Martin after the teen punched him in the nose and smashed his head into the pavement — an account corroborated by witnesses, according to reports citing local authorities. Zimmerman’s gun was confiscated, but he was not arrested. Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law permits deadly force in some cases of self-defense. </p> <p>Corrupt Media in 'Walk Back' Panic Mode: Becoming Obvious That Trayvon Martin Was a Highly Skilled Criminal Who Rarely Got Caught SANFORD — Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin was suspended from school in October in an incident in which he was found in possession of women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that a schools security staffer described as a “burglary tool,” The Miami Herald has learned. Trayvon, who claimed that an unnamed friend had given him the jewelry, was not disciplined because of the discovery, but was instead suspended for graffiti, according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. A lawyer for the dead teen’s family acknowledged Trayvon had been suspended for graffiti, but said the family knew nothing about the jewelry and the screwdriver, calling the information in the report an attempt to “demonize” the youth. According to the report, on Oct. 21 staffers monitoring a security camera at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School spotted Trayvon and two other students writing “W.T.F.,” an acronym for “What the f-—,” on a hallway locker, according to schools police. The security employee, who knew Trayvon, confronted the teen and looked through his bag for the graffiti marker. Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described the screwdriver as a burglary tool. Trayvon was asked if the jewelry, which was mostly women’s rings and earrings, belonged to his family or a girlfriend. “Martin replied it’s not mine. A friend gave it to me,” according to the report. Trayvon declined to name the friend. School police impounded the jewelry and sent photos of the items to detectives at Miami-Dade police for further investigation. “Martin was suspended, warned and dismissed for the graffiti,” according to the report prepared by Miami-Dade Schools Police. That suspension was followed four months later by another one, in February, in which Trayvon was caught with an empty plastic bag with traces of marijuana in it, the boy’s family’s attorney has confirmed. A schools police report obtained by The Miami Herald specifies two items: a bag with marijuana residue and a “marijuana pipe.” The suspension was the third for the teen. On Monday, the family also acknowledged Trayvon had earlier been suspended for tardiness and truancy. The reports of the suspensions surfaced as a more complicated portrait of Trayvon began to emerge Monday. Trayvon was shot to death in Sanford on Feb. 26 during a scuffle with neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. He was suspended from school at the time. Reacting to the new schools police report, Ben Crump, an attorney for the parents, said they “never heard anything like this about a bag of jewelry….And anyway, it’s completely irrelevant to what happened Feb. 26. They never heard this, and don’t believe it’s true. If it were true, why wouldn’t they call the parents? Why wasn’t he arrested?” “We think everybody is trying to demonize him.” Trayvon, who was 17 when he died, had never been arrested, he said. His mother, Sybrina Fulton, said her son never had any problems with gangs or the police. In fact, she said, when she transferred him out of Carol City High School to be closer to home, the school wanted him to stay at Carol City because they liked him and he was a good student, she said.

Trayvon Martin Shooter Told Cops Teenager Went For His Gun George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch crime captain who shot dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, originally told police in a written statement that Martin knocked him down with a punch to the nose, repeatedly slammed his head on the ground and tried to take his gun, a police source told ABC News. Zimmerman had claimed he had called police about Martin, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him. The new information is the most complete version yet of what Zimmerman claims happened on the night of Feb. 26 when he shot and killed the teenager. In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman's description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Martin.

Trayvon Martin Case: New Black Panthers Offer $10,000 Bounty for Capture of George Zimmerman SANFORD — Members of the New Black Panther Party are offering a $10,000 reward for the &quot;capture&quot; of George Zimmerman, leader Mikhail Muhammad announced during a protest in Sanford today. The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 5,000 black men to capture George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin last month. The New Black Panthers will hold a protest in Sanford just before 1 p.m. today, the activist group's third protest in the past two weeks over the fatal shooting of the Miami Gardens teen. The group called for.. Who is George Zimmerman? Is he really a racist or just an overzealous wannabe cop? The shooter was once a Catholic altar boy — with a surname that could have been Jewish. His father is white, neighbors say. His mother is Latina. And his family is eager to point out that some of his relatives are black. There may be no box to check for George Zimmerman, no tidy way to categorize, define and sort the 28-year-old man whose pull of a trigger on a darkened Florida street is forcing America to once again confront its fraught relationship with race and identity. The victim, we know, was named Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager in a hoodie. The rest becomes a matter for interpretation. African-American Lynch Mob Is anybody else out there as sick and tired as I am of lynch mob racists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton (vide: Tawana Brawley, the Duke Lacrosse kids) who don the mantel of the “civil rights” movement to indict non-blacks in advance of the facts, and incite racial rage against them? Yet that is exactly what they – and scores of black leaders — are doing to an Hispanic individual named George Zimmerman. Along with a cast of thousands, they are holding him guilty of racism before the fact, justifying a hatred, as inflammatory as the hatred once spewed... </p> <p>Media Blackout on Obama Eligibility Near-Total Despite Vast Public Interest, 'Mainstream' and 'Conservative' Press AWOL </p> <p>Even though almost half of registered voters tell pollsters they are not convinced Barack Obama’s birth certificate is authentic – and even though the first official U.S. law enforcement investigation into the matter established “probable cause” that the document released with great fanfare by the White House last April is a computer-generated forgery – a virtual media blackout remains in effect on the most controversial story of the Obama presidency. Even when one of several bombshell findings of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s six-month investigation into Obama’s constitutional eligibility was rated last week by Internet ranking service Alexa.com as one of the most-read news stories in the entire world – due almost entirely to coverage by WND and the Drudge Report – not only the establishment press, but most of the “conservative” media as well, looked the other way. For example: Shortly after Arpaio’s March 1 press conference, a popular column discussing Obama’s eligibility to serve as president was published on Townhall.com – which bills itself as the “leading conservative and political opinion website” – but then, the column inexplicably disappeared from the site. Titled “Sheriff Joe Exposes Forgery of Obama’s Selective Service Registration,” by Floyd and Mary Beth Brown of the Western Center For Journalism, it had been Townhall’s eighth-most-read and most-emailed column that day. Then suddenly it was gone – and WND’s requests for comment failed to elicit any explanation from Townhall. Then last week, another regular Townhall columnist, Diana West, wrote “Why the Silence About Obama’s Historic Scam?” but found that it wasn’t posted on Townhall at all. Worse, it was déjŕ vu for West, whose previous column on the same topic likewise was also spiked. When WND asked West why her last two columns on the subject of Obama’s eligibility weren’t posted on Townhall, she responded: “This week’s empty hole where my column on media silence on Sheriff Arpaio’s press conference would normally go, like last month’s empty hole where my column on the Atlanta court proceeding on eligibility would normally go, speak for themselves.” West’s column cited the “hard, sharp facts that might poke through my discussion of what is surely the biggest scandal to emerge around the seemingly dodgy docs Barack Obama is using to verify his identity.” She also noted the “logic- and history-defying news and political blackout of the March 1 press conference called in Maricopa County, Ariz., by Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.” West’s challenge to readers was simple: “I ask you: Have you read in your local paper about the technical evidence that led the posse’s three retired criminal investigators and two attorneys to conclude that the birth certificate image White House officials uploaded at the White House website on April 27, 2011, did not originate in a paper format, but rather was created (forged) as an electronic file on a computer? “Have you seen on network or cable news the video clip (one of six posse videos at YouTube) re-creating exactly how an additional fraud might have been committed to forge the president’s Selective Service registration card? Heard even conservative talk radio discussing the posse’s discovery that immigration files in the National Archives recording overseas arrivals into Hawaii are missing from the week of Obama’s 1961 birthday? Or about the retired mailman’s affidavit attesting that the mother of ex-Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers enthusiastically told him that she helped with “foreign student” Barack Obama’s education?”West also found it highly revealing that, while “watching the posse’s press conference online, I heard lead investigator Michael Zullo explain that the 1961 Hawaiian newspaper listings of Barack Obama’s birth confirm nothing because the posse ‘can prove beyond a doubt’ that these newspapers announced arrivals of foreign babies as well as native-born. Zullo also announced the posse had ‘documented evidence of two adopted individuals who were breathing three years prior’ and were similarly listed as newborn infants. Heard anything about that?” Last week, a top Breitbart.com editor said he believed “there’s no evidence” to support allegations questioning Obama’s eligibility as president, adding, “It’s a waste of resources, and it’s a waste of time.” What about Fox News? When it was announced that talk radio powerhouse “Mancow” Muller would be featured in two one-hour Fox TV specials called “Mancow TV Worldwide,” the radio host specifically requested that WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi be his first guest. Corsi, a two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author and Harvard Ph.D., was set to discuss Iran and Israel, as well as globalism. When Fox was setting up the time for Corsi to be interviewed on Muller’s debut show, he was specifically prohibited by the show’s producers from discussing anything to do with the constitutional eligibility questions still plaguing Obama. Corsi has been the nation’s leading investigative journalist on the Obama eligibility issue and is the author of the New York Times bestseller “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” As such, he played a central role in introducing the issue to Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The sheriff’s investigative team recently completed the first phase of an ongoing law-enforcement investigation into the many vexing and totally unvetted issues of Obama’s past that bear directly on the legality of his serving as president. Corsi agreed to the restrictions on the Mancow interview, and the Fox segment was taped and scheduled for broadcast. But then, Corsi’s publicist received a call from the show’s producer saying network executives had viewed the segment and determined that it “didn’t fit,” and thus would be scrubbed. “It’s clear censorship at Fox,” according to Corsi, who says it’s apparent the network didn’t want an appearance by anyone even linked to the Obama investigation, and claims it confirms the various reports that the mainstream media are censoring reports on Obama’s eligibility. “Fox does not want to cover the Obama eligibility issue,” he said. “It’s a clear indication Fox is moving to the left. Owner Rupert] Murdoch must be under increasing political pressure …” Corsi added, “This confirms stories we’ve been gathering about the threats (against reporting on Obama’s eligibility),” he said. “In fact, it’s reaching such a level of censorship that it’s of interest to the sheriff’s posse.” He was referring to the “Cold Case Posse” of law-enforcement professionals and attorneys assembled by Arpaio, who announced the results of their six-month investigation on March 1. Arpaio’s investigation continues, but at the news conference announcing the initial results, lead investigator Mike Zullo stated, ominously: “During our investigation, we actually were told that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations if they continued reporting on eligibility]. Commentators had been] threatened with their jobs.” The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, Zullo confirmed. Before the White House’s April 27, 2011, release of the purported Obama birth certificate, Fox did provide some coverage – spurred on by both Donald Trump’s bold, public questioning of the birth certificate, as well as the then-imminent release of Corsi’s “Where’s the Birth Certificate” which shot to No. 1 on the Amazon bestseller list a full month before release. But ever since Obama released his document – judged by virtually every expert who has rendered an opinion to be a forgery – Fox, like other major cable and broadcast networks, hasn’t touched the issue. The irony is that Trump, a key instigator of the original coverage, now says Obama’s vaunted birth certificate is likely a forgery, and is strongly encouraging Arpaio’s investigation. Likewise, as the Daily Caller reported last week in a story headlined “Lord Monckton: ‘I’m no birther,’ but Obama birth certificate ‘plainly a forgery,’” Lord Christopher Monckton, the former policy adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, said of Obama: “ W]hat he has done on the White House website is he has put up a document which he is plainly a forgery and I would regard that as a very serious matter.” Because of the media blackout on reporting the results of the Arpaio team’s six-month investigation, Zullo eventually agreed to an ebook project to allow the evidence assembled by the professional investigators to reach the eyes of the public. </p> <p>NOTE: In case you missed the news conference of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” you can view it here. </p> <p>Amazingly Immigration Records Missing for ONLY the Week of Obama's Birth Arpaio's Team Probing Possibility President Born Abroad Bipartisan Collusion with the State-run Media to Make This Happen Is the Biggest 'Untold Story' </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi - After months of searching, investigators commissioned by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio to examine Barack Obama’s eligibility for office found Immigration and Naturalization Service travel records for foreign flights into Hawaii in 1961, only to discover that records for the week of Obama’s birth were missing. Investigators were searching to determine if Barack Obama might have been born in a foreign country and returned to Honolulu in or around August 1961 with his mother, Ann Dunham. Arpaio’s team looked at databases in the National Archives and Records Administration with microfilm of INS passenger records for foreign flights arriving in Honolulu and New York City. If Obama was not born in Hawaii, as he and the Hawaii Department of Health have been insisting, there should be INS passenger cards that the new mother filled out for herself and her infant son upon arrival in Honolulu from a Pacific Rim city or arrival in New York City from across the Atlantic. Arpaio launched the investigation after being presented with a petition signed by 250 members of the Surprise Tea Party in Surprise, Ariz. He authorized a volunteer Cold Case Posse of former law enforcement officers and detectives in October 2011 to examine the authenticity of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and to determine Obama’s eligibility to be president under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution. Before he was first elected Maricopa County sheriff in 1993, Arpaio spent 25 years with the Drug Enforcement Administration, including service as DEA regional director in Mexico City and special agent in charge in Phoenix. He is running for re-election to his sixth term as Maricopa County sheriff. As WND reported, Arpaio’s team found probable cause that the document presented one year ago as Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery. WND reported yesterday that Arpaio asked Selective Service Director Lawrence Romo in a letter to produce original documentation of Obama’s Selective Service registration, noting his team’s finding that there is probable cause that it, too, was forged. </p> <p>Microfilm Examined After INS passenger records for foreign flights entering the U.S. through Hawaii in a database identified as “A3573&#8243; were found, Arpaio’s investigators found a second database, designated as “A3998,” with comparable INS records for foreign flights arriving at New York City’s Idlewild Airport. One complication was that the National Archives and Records Administration, or NARA, held only the original microfilm records for INS 1961 airline passenger record. Since the original microfilm records were often the only existing copies of the passenger manifests, NARA would not permit them to be viewed by researchers. The intent was to protect the originals from being scratched or damaged, especially by placing them on a microfilm reel or copier. Finally, NARA agreed to produce microfilm copies of 24 reels of records for the time period from July 1961 through September 1961. Subsequently, 28 microfilm reels from A3998 records of INS passenger cards for foreign flights arriving at New York’s Idlewild Airport in August 1961 were copied by NARA and made available for examination at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. To date, researchers are waiting for the additional 1961 records for both datasets to be copied by NARA and made available for inspection at the National Archives. </p> <p>Obama Birth-week Records Missing Investigators examining the microfilm records found only one week of INS passenger cards to be completely missing in all the records so far examined. In some sequences of cards, the records were blurred or overlapped each other, obscuring the data. Specifically, in Record Group A 3573, data records for Aug. 2, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961, appear to be completely missing, as if the records were removed from the database prior to the microfilm recording. Exhibit A shows NARA Record Group A3573, Reel 184, for INS passenger records on foreign flights into Honolulu from July 28, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961. SEE Exhibit A — INS cards, Honolulu, July 28 to Aug. 7, 1961 Exhibit B shows NARA Record Group A3573, Reel 185, INS passenger records on foreign flights into Honolulu from Aug. 8 through Aug. 12, 1961. SEE Exhibit B — INS cards, Honolulu, Aug. 8 – Aug. 12, 1961 Remarkably, all INS records for the week of Obama’s birth, Aug. 1 through Aug. 7, 1961, were missing from the end of Reel 184 and were not discovered anywhere on Reel 185 or any other microfilm reel in the record group. SEE Exhibit C — Photostat printout of what the end of Reel 184 looks like. While the printout is only partial, what can be observed is one of the two or three INS cards in the records from Aug. 1, 1961. The reel ends with about 10 inches of white blurs and black space, without any other records from Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, 1961, despite the written documentation to the contrary on the microfilm reel’s box. </p> <p>NARA Explains In a series of emails beginning Nov. 21, 2011, investigators notified NARA archive reference specialists of the missing dates. NARA specialists in Washington, D.C., checked with the NARA employees in College Park, Md., who had made the duplicate microfilm reels for public inspection. College Park NARA officials found the INS passenger records in Record Group A3573, Reels 184 and 185, were also missing in the original microfilm reels. No INS original paper documents could be found for 1961. At the request of investigators, NARA archivists documented the missing records in a two-page letter. The first page of the letter can be viewed here and the second page here. In the Feb. 6 letter, Brenda Beasley Kepley, chief of NARA’s Archives 1 Processing Section, acknowledged that passenger records for Record Group A3573, Rolls 184 and 185, covering the period July 28 through Aug. 12, 1961, had been filmed by the INS in August 1961, and the original paper records were not retained. Kepley acknowledged that the records for the period Aug. 2 through Aug. 7, 1961, were missing. She argued that the missing data was due to poor quality control that allowed multiple cards to be fed through a document feeder and become bunched together, obscuring the images underneath. “Apparently no quality control was done at the time of filming to check for these errors,” Kepley wrote. “Consequently, it is difficult to determine whether or not images of cards for the period August 2 through August 7 exist on Roll 184. If they do, they are unreadable.” The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office ordered and obtained duplicate microfilm of Rolls 184 and 185 to be placed into evidence. Investigators examining both microfilm rolls determined that the 10 inches of microfilm filled by white blurs and blank space would have been a fraction of the microfilm inches needed had records been intact for all foreign flights arriving in Honolulu Aug. 2 through Aug. 7, 1961. While a few bunched records are observed at the end of Reel 184, investigators did not find evidence of the volume of INS passenger record cards that would have been present had the records been microfilmed. The bunching up of several hundred INS passenger card records for the dozens of flights arriving in Hawaii Aug. 2 through Aug. 7, 1961 would have constituted a major collapse in the document feeding mechanism that could not possibly have gone unnoticed by the microfilm technicians making the archive record from the physical paper copies. MCSO investigators concluded that the NARA explanation of bunched up and overlapping records caused by a defective document feeder was not a credible explanation for what was observed on the two microfilm reels. Reel 185 begins with Aug. 8, 1961, with minimal and expected blank lead microfilm and with no trace of bunched or overlapping records from previous dates. Instead, MCSO investigators have concluded that the INS passenger records for the dates Aug. 2 – Aug. 7, 1961 are missing from NARA Record Group A3575 for reasons that remain unexplained. MCSO investigators are currently waiting for NARA to duplicate the remaining 1961 INS passenger cards in both record groups for subsequent inspection at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. </p> <p>Editor’s Note: Arpaio’s team authorized WND’s Jerome Corsi to examine the INS documents at the National Archives. </p> <p>JUST ANOTHER AMAZING COINCIDENCE?? Could This Birth Be Obama!! — INS Document Found: U.S. Certificate to One East African Child of U. S. Citizen in 1961 African newspaper had it right! </p> <p>IMPLICATIVE DISCOVERY: A government document found buried in the online reference section of a Boston Public Library archive bolsters a growing mountain of evidentiary data against Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president. The document indicates that a consular officer issued a single certificate of statutory citizenship, within the time frame including August 4, 1961, to a child born to a U.S. citizen between July 1st and December 31st, 1961 in the Kenyan region of Africa. The record also reveals that the certificate was the only one issued for this specific type of arrival in the U.S. over a span of more than 18 months, among thousands from other parts of the world. </p> <p>NEW YORK, NY – A recently discovered rare immigration record found by researchers working on behalf of an ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the office of the U.S. presidency reveals that an American consular officer issued a single Certificate of Citizenship to only one passenger arriving in the U.S. from the Kenyan region of Africa between July and December of 1961. The record shows demographic and status classifications for a passenger who was explicitly recorded at the INS Arrival Inspection Station as an individual being born to a U.S. citizen parent arriving from the Kenyan region of Africa between July 1st and December 31st, 1961. This information and the dates of its documentation are disturbing given the rare nature of the issuance of certificates of citizenship for children who acquire their citizenship by birth to incoming U.S. citizens in this particular region of Africa. These dates not only align with the alleged date of Obama’s birth on August 4, 1961, but also with evidence indicating that Ann Dunham departed from Hawaii beginning in February, 1961, shortly after her undocumented marriage to Obama Sr. Also supported by this data is the implication of an African trip by the absence of Dunham’s passport information which is known to have existed from the 1960s which was used in at least one occasion for her departure with Obama Jr. to Indonesia where the two lived with Lolo Soetoro, Dunham’s second husband. If Dunham had filed for a “renewal” of an old passport, rather than for a new passport in the mid 1960’s for the Indonesian trip, which would have been the common practice for the life of a passport, this would have been indicated on the missing application which would have been included with the series of documents released by an FOIA request in early 2010. SEE DOCS - Continued &gt; &gt; </p> <p>Sheriff Joe: 'Tons' More Shocking Obama Info Rips 'Biggest Censorship Blackout in the History of the United States' “America’s toughest sheriff” says there is “tons” more potentially shocking information on Barack Obama in connection with his probe into the president’s eligibility, and he calls the media’s suppression of his findings of a likely forged presidential birth certificate and Selective Service Card “probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States.” “I’m not going after the president to keep him off a ballot or anything else, but that could happen,” Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “I’m going at it strictly as a law-enforcement guy investigating a possible forgery and fraud. I’m sticking with that, but I’ll tell you one thing. We got tons of other information that could be very shocking, too, but I’m sticking now with just the forgery] investigation and possible criminal violations.” As WND reported March 1, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced there is probable cause indicating the documents released by the White House last April purported to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card are actually forgeries. He stressed on the radio show his original intent with the posse was to put to rest all the claims suggesting Obama was not meeting the constitutional requirements to hold the presidency. “I told these guys, ‘I want you to do a good job. I hope we clear the president,’” he explained. “I said give me the microfiche in Hawaii to show that he was born in that hospital. Give us the microfiche. I said that six months ago. And that would clear everything up. But as we went into it with an open mind, now we’re coming to a conclusion that we may have some forged documents revolving around this situation.” When asked about making an arrest, Arpaio said, “We’re trying to identify any alleged forger. We haven’t done that yet. … I’m not blaming the president, but if they’re forged, someone has to be responsible for doing that.” The sheriff also said that on Friday, he made a decision about where to send Obama’s Selective Service Card in order to have that agency “help us or do an independent investigation.” “We have nothing to hide. We’re bringing it to their attention, and see what happens,” Arpaio said. “My problem is, there’s a lot of conflicts out here to get somebody to look into this. Regarding] the media … this is probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States. When I go to the toilet, I make it in national news. … I just can’t believe the media, including the cable media blocking this thing out.” Arpaio did not specify the agency to which he sent his information and request for assistance, and when he was asked by Hedgecock if it were the U.S. Selective Service System, the sheriff responded: “I guess common sense would be to send it to them. The Selective Service director is appointed by the president. … They only have 136 employees in the whole organization. I presume if I did that, what do you think they’re gonna to do with it? The director Lawrence Romo] who was appointed from San Antonio, Texas, eight months into the Obama administration, what do you think he’s gonna do? He’s probably gonna call some guy at the White House if he can get up to the chief of staff to ask some advice, and then what are they gonna do? Give it to the attorney general? I don’t know. … So I’m fighting big battles here.” Arpaio made special note about the issue of Obama’s possibly forged Selective Service Card. “We had a press conference. A lot of people came. They were snickering, trying to embarrass me, saying] this is a pony show trying to get publicity,” he said. “However, when we showed the Selective Service Card on the screen, you could hear a pin drop.” Though Arpaio did not focus on Obama’s Social Security Number at his news conference, WND has also reported the president may be using a fraudulent number, another important piece of information the national news media continue to suppress. The Arpaio findings are not the only items the media are refusing to cover. As WND reported yesterday, a full-blown cover-up appears to be taking place in connection with WND’s disclosure about a retired U.S. postman who has signed a sworn affidavit suggesting Obama was a foreign-born student who was receiving financial help to go to Harvard from the parents of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. </p> <p>Sheriff Arpaio Requests Investigation into Obama's Phony 1980 Registration Card </p> <p>PHOENIX — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has sent a letter to the Director of the U.S. Selective Service System headquarters in Arlington, Virginia requesting the agency to conduct an investigation into Barack Obama's Selective Service registration form from 1980. This comes after the preliminary findings of Arpaio's six- month investigation that determined it may a forgery. The letter also asks for an original form so forensic document examiners can analyze the document for authenticity. Apraio claims he is just doing his job, and isn't targeting the president. &quot;I'm not accusing anyone right now of any violation of law,&quot; Arpaio said. &quot;However when you look at the birth certificate and the selective service form I think there's pretty good evidence that there's a possible forgery.&quot; Arpaio is asking for a response within 30 days. If no response is given, he will then decide if his office will move forward with its own investigation. &quot;While my office will continue pursuing this investigation, I have spoken of the need to enlist the aid of other agencies,&quot; Arpaio said. &quot;As a first step to that end, I am now requesting the assistance of the U.S. Selective Service System asking them to conduct a concurrent investigation to verify the authenticity of this document.&quot; VIDEO: Sheriff Joe Arpaio Cold Case Posse's Video On 'Obama Selective Service Fraud' </p> <p>The Postman Knows: Ayers Family Helped Put 'The Foreigner' Obama Through Harvard </p> <p>By Jerome R. Corsi — TWEET: (1) Did the parents of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers help finance Barack Obama’s Harvard education? (2) Did Ayers’ mother believe Obama was a foreign student? (3) And was the young Obama convinced at the time – long before he even entered politics – that he was going to become president of the United States? Allen Hulton — A retired U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered mail to Tom and Mary Ayers in a Chicago suburb in the late 1980s and early 1990s and claims to have met Obama in front of the Ayers home emphatically says YES TO ALL 3 QUESTIONS. </p> <p>Allen Hulton, who was commended for 39 years of honorable service with the USPS, has given a sworn affidavit to investigators commissioned by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio to determine whether Obama is eligible for Arizona’s 2012 election ballot. Hulton has recorded about three hours of video interviews with WND. Hulton says that in conversations with Mary Ayers while on his route he learned of the couple’s enthusiasm and support for a black foreign student. One bright, warm Chicagoland day, he recounts, he met the student who fit Mary Ayers’ description in front of the Ayers home in Glen Ellyn, Ill. That young man, Hulton is convinced, was Barack Obama. Hulton delivered mail to the Ayers, who are both deceased, when he was stationed at the post office in Glen Ellyn, an upper-middle class suburb 25 miles west of downtown Chicago, from late 1986 to 1997. He was a USPS employee from March 28, 1962, through March 30, 2001. (Editor’s note: Although the Ayers family no longer lives there, WND is withholding the Glen Ellyn street address for the sake of the current residents’ privacy.) “It was a beautiful neighborhood – one of the nicer routes any of the letter carriers would have liked to have had,” Hulton recalls. “It had some large and very beautiful homes.” As WND reported yesterday, Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayers – whom he dismissed in a 2008 debate as “just a guy who lives in my neighborhood” – plagued him in the 2008 presidential campaign and could resurface in this year’s election, as many questions remain. </p> <p>Young Obama Over a period of years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Hulton estimates he spoke with Mary Ayers about 18 to 20 times and once to Tom Ayers, who died in 2007. Mary Ayers died in 2000. “Sometimes Mary would be out when I delivered the mail, and we would exchange a few words on occasion,” he says, recalling that she liked to talk about her family. “One day, Mary came to the door when I came up to the house with the mail,” he remembers. “After a greeting, she started enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student they were helping out, and she referred to him as a foreign student.” Hulton assumed that by “helping” the student, Mary Ayers meant she and her husband were financially supporting the black foreign-exchange student with his education. He says that Mary Ayers told him the student’s name, but that it was a “strange name” that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him. “I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him,” Hulton says. “And I believe she said he was from either Kenya or Indonesia, and I favor Indonesia in my recollection.” WND has reported that when Obama was in Indonesia with his Indonesian stepfather and his mother from ages 6 to10, he was registered in school as an Indonesian citizen and a Muslim. He went by the name Barry Soetoro, adopting the surname of his Indonesian stepfather. His mother’s passport listed him with the surname Soebarkah. Obama refuses to waive privacy rights that would allow the Hawaii Department of Health to release any adoption records that may exist for him. Even should Obama waive privacy rights, the Hawaii Department of Health might not feel compelled to release any adoption records that may exist. Tight restrictions to vital records have been enacted by the Hawaii State Legislature to seal any public documents pertaining to Obama’s birth records and his adoption status. If Obama were adopted by his Indonesian stepfather, he may have compromised his eligibility to be president, according to Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which requires that a president be a “natural-born citizen,” which experts say means having both parents be U.S. citizens. </p> <p>‘I’m going to be president of the United States’ About a year after discussing with Mary Ayers the foreign student she and her husband were supporting, Hulton recalls meeting a young black male on the sidewalk in front of the Ayers home. Hulton describes the man as being in his early 20s, noting that he was tall, thin, had a light complexion and that his ears stuck out. “He greeted me,” Hulton says. “He was very polite, dressed nicely, but informally – slacks and a dress shirt – and he spoke with no accent. Immediately this young black man entered into conversation with me. He told me he had taken the train out from Chicago and had come to thank the Ayers family personally for having helped him with his education.” Hulton remembers asking the young man what his plans were for the future. “He looked right at me and told me he was going to be president of the United States,” Hulton says. “There was a little bit of a grin on his face when he said it – he sounded sure of himself, but not arrogant. I know how people will say things because they have an ambition, but it did not come across that way,” Hulton says. “It came across as if this young black male was telling me he was going to be president, almost as if it were the statement of a scientific fact that had already been determined, as if his being president had been already pre-arranged.” Hulton says the claim made him speechless. “I kind of stuttered a response and said that nowadays anything is possible. I wished him good luck with his ambition,” he says. Immediately, Hulton associated the young black man with the foreign student Mary Ayers had mentioned to him so enthusiastically about a year earlier. “I remembered the conversation I had with Mary, and I associated this young man with the foreign student she had discussed with me, because Mary said they were supporting this foreign student, and the young black man I met outside the Ayers’ home said he had come to Glen Ellyn to thank the Ayers in person for helping him with his education.” During the 2008 presidential campaign, Hulton observed several news reports detailing the relationship between Obama and Bill Ayers, and he recalled the encounter with the young man in front of Tom and Mary Ayers’ home. “The facial and physical characteristics, as well as candidate Obama’s voice, matched that of the young black male I met in front of the Ayers’ home,” Hulton says in the affidavit he signed Nov. 12, 2011, for Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation. “I am positive that the black male I spoke with in front of the Ayers’ house that day was indeed a young Barack Obama.” Hulton distinctly recalls that the day he met Obama in front of the Ayers’ residence was a warm, sunny day and that Obama wasn’t wearing a jacket. </p> <p>Marxist Hulton recalls that he had one conversation with Tom Ayers, who was retired as CEO and chairman of Commonwealth Edison, shortly after the Ayers family moved into their home in Glen Ellyn. “He asked me how I liked my job, and he started into what seemed to me a Marxist viewpoint on what it is like for the working man, trying to convince me that working people like me were exploited by their employers,” Hulton remembers of the conversation. “As an American citizen, I appreciated everything I had, and I was not at war with people who had more than I had,” he says. “It surprised me to hear somebody who had been president of Consolidated Edison talking in these terms.” Hulton says he got the feeling that Tom Ayers thought he knew more about the plight of the workingman than he did. </p> <p>Summer 1989 A likely timeframe for Hulton’s alleged encounter with Obama is the summer of 1989, when Obama was an intern at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin, after his first year at Harvard Law School. Hulton says Obama mentioned to him taking the train. The Metra, a commuter from downtown Chicago, stops at a Glen Ellyn station a little more than a mile from the Ayers’ residence. Michelle Robinson, Obama’s wife-to-be, was the attorney at the firm assigned to mentor Obama in the summer of 1989. Bernardine Dohrn also had worked as a paralegal at Sidley Austin, from 1984 through 1988. Dohrn’s 1960s radical activities as a self-described “revolutionary communist” landed her on the FBI’s list of 10 most wanted fugitives, and because of her felony conviction, she was not allowed to take the Illinois bar exam. Widely speculated in Chicago is that Dohrn got the job at Sidley Austin through the influence of her father-in-law, Thomas Ayers, who was one of the law firm’s biggest clients. Michelle Obama started at the firm in the summer of 1988 and remained there until 1991. Hulton recalls meeting Dohrn at the home of her in-laws, although his encounters with her were limited to having Dohrn sign for mail addressed to her. </p> <p>First Reported in 2009 Hulton’s account of meeting Obama in suburban Chicago was first reported by California lawyer and political scientist Stephen Diamond in September 2009. Writing on his blog, Diamond reported that he had interviewed Hulton at length and considered his account credible. “The statement by Hulton is the first eyewitness account of a possible relationship between Obama and Tom Ayers and the first that dates his relationship with the Ayers family to the mid-1980s,” Diamond wrote. As early as Oct. 13, 2008, prior to the November 2008 presidential election, Diamond had reported that Obama’s relationship with the Ayers family dated back to 1988. At that time, Obama, as head of the Developing Communities Project, joined the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, the ABCs Coalition. The lobbying alliance aimed to push through Chicago public schools the creation of “Local School Councils,” or LSCs, to oversee teachers and administrators. “The proposal was very controversial, and groups like Operation PUSH headed by Jesse Jackson did not support it, because many teachers were black – it was one of the first stable middle class careers a black person, and black women in particular, could aspire to in Chicago,” Diamond wrote. Tom Ayers and Bill Ayers were strong supporters of the LSCs, however, according to Diamond, and Chicago United, a group founded by Tom Ayers, joined ABCs too. Bill Ayers became chairman of ABCs. </p> <p>Knew Ayers’ Brother Hulton was in the same class as Tim Ayers, Bill Ayers’ brother, at Glenbard High School in Glen Ellyn. Although he did not know Bill Ayers, Hulton thought he might have met him at the parents’ home once or twice, but he could not say for certain. Hulton attended Glenbard, now known as Glenbard West, for four years, but did not have enough credits to graduate. He later earned a GED while in military service. Taking leave from the USPS when he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1965, Hulton returned to work as a mailman following his honorable discharge in 1967. While in the Army, he was assigned to a Pershing Ballistics Missile unit in Germany. Although the Vietnam War was being fought at the time, he was never assigned to Vietnam. </p> <p>VIEW Jerome Corsi's interview with Allen Hulton HERE: VIEW Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse&quot; news conference HERE: READ the preliminary findings of Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse investigation. </p> <p>The Mailman Delivers: He Remembers the Ayers Family and Their Foreign Visitor By Jack Cashill - A few days ago I got a call asking whether I knew anything about the Ayers family mailman. I had heard of him, I said. I remembered liberal blogger Steven Diamond having interviewed the fellow a few years back, but I paid it little mind, as the information seemed too limited to pursue. The caller then sent me a video interview with the mailman by WND sleuth Jerome Corsi. The video made me sit up and pay attention. The mailman is a real person. His name is Alan Hulton. He seems entirely credible, and he has a story to tell. Hulton delivered mail in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, from 1962 to 2001 with a couple years off to serve in the military. During roughly ten of those years, he delivered mail to the home of Tom and Mary Ayers, Bill Ayers's parents. Hulton talked to Tom once, Mary several times, their daughter-in-law Bernardine Dohrn a few times, and Bill Ayers not at all. Memorably, he talked once to one of their visitors, but more on that in a moment. As Hulton tells Corsi -- and he has sworn an affidavit to the same -- he met Tom Ayers not long after the Ayerses moved to the neighborhood. Until he retired in 1980 at the age of 65, Tom Ayers was the CEO and chairman of Commonwealth Edison. Tom, however, was not your garden-variety plutocrat. According to Diamond, who knows his way around Chicago politics, Tom was a &quot;lifelong liberal&quot; -- one deeply involved in the same educational reform movement that engaged son Bill and, briefly, Barack Obama in 1988. Tom Ayers was comfortable enough with Bill's lifestyle to live with him in Hyde Park until Tom died in 2007. When Hulton met Tom Ayers, they talked about working conditions at the Post Office. &quot;I couldn't believe how he responded,&quot; Hulton told Diamond. &quot;He started to talk about workers having to struggle to survive and about peasants and the proletariat. It made me think later that he might be a Marxist!&quot; Hulton would tell Corsi, &quot;I had this uncomfortable feeling that he thought he knew about my situation as a working person better than I did, that he knew what was best for me.&quot; Hulton also recalls one particular conversation with Mary Ayers. &quot;She was enthusiastically talking to me about this young black student that they were helping out,&quot; he tells Corsi, &quot;and she referred to him as a foreign student.&quot; Adds Hulton, &quot;I was taken aback by how enthusiastic she was about him.&quot; Within a year of this conversation, Hulton had a fateful meeting with the young man he presumed Mary was talking about. According to Hulton, he encountered the fellow on the sidewalk on the front of the Ayers home. In that it was extremely rare to see a black man in this tony neighborhood, Hulton believes that the man felt the need to explain his visit to the Ayers household. Hulton describes him as friendly and neatly, although casually, dressed. Hulton tells Corsi, &quot;I am absolutely positive that it was Barack Obama.&quot; Hulton was sympathetic. After he had come out of military service, he was a supporter of Martin Luther King, who had pressed for fair housing in the Chicago area in the 1960s. &quot;I took some flak about my support for civil rights from my fellow workers at the time,&quot; remembers Hulton. Obama explained to Hulton that he had taken the train out from Chicago to Glen Ellyn in order &quot;to thank the Ayers family personally for helping him with his education.&quot; What shocked Hulton was that when casually inquiring into the young man's plans for the future, Obama answered, &quot;I am going to be president of the United States.&quot; As Hulton tells Corsi, &quot; i]t came across like this was something that's already been determined.&quot; Adds Hulton, &quot;I was speechless.&quot; Hulton told Diamond and Corsi essentially the same story. What gives the Corsi interview added value is that we see Hulton tell it. Although just a year older than Bill Ayers, he seems to come from a different generation. He has little to gain -- and a lot to risk -- by going public. Corsi warns Hulton that by quoting Mary's comment that Obama was a &quot;foreign student,&quot; he has put himself at some risk. Says Hulton, &quot;I am only telling you what I distinctly remember her saying -- that he was a foreign student.&quot; Hulton's interviews with Diamond and Corsi are consistent in every major detail save for dates. Hulton suggested to Diamond that the sidewalk meeting took place in the mid-'80s, but Corsi suggests to Hulton that it was in the early 1990s, and Hulton does not correct him. Hulton clearly does not remember the date. If I were to speculate, I would guess 1988, the year Obama started Harvard Law School. Presuming Hulton actually met Obama, the &quot;education&quot; in question would almost surely have been law school. There is a good deal at stake here. According to Snopes and the other fact-check sites, Bill Ayers and Obama did not meet until the mid-1990s. This is a talking point that both Ayers and Obama have upheld. When Ayers appeared on ABC's Good Morning America in 2008, he put the date of their first meeting in 1995 at a fundraiser in Ayers's own home. &quot;I think he was probably in 20 homes that day as far as I know,&quot; said Ayers. &quot;But that was the first time I really met him.&quot; As it happens, I stumbled into my own discovery of Ayers's involvement in the writing of Obama's 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, when I was investigating how Obama got into Harvard Law School and who paid his way. What had piqued my interest was an interview with veteran New York power-broker Percy Sutton on a local New York City show called Inside City Hall. The interview took place in late March 2008 but did not surface until August 2008. Sutton told how twenty years prior he had been &quot;introduced to Obama] by a friend.&quot; The friend's name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, &quot;the principal adviser to one of the world's richest men.&quot; The billionaire in question was Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud 29th world's wealthiest ($18 Billion) and the nephew of King Abdullah. According to Sutton, al-Mansour had asked him to &quot;please write a letter in support of Obama] ... a young man that has applied to Harvard.&quot; Sutton had friends at Harvard and gladly did so. A few months before the election, it should have mattered that a respected black political figure like Sutton had publicly announced that a fanatic black separatist, backed by an ambitious Saudi billionaire, had been guiding Obama's career perhaps for the last twenty years. It did to the Obama-friendly media, but not in a way in which it would have to real journalists. Moving in swiftly to kill the story were Politico, an insider D.C. journal run by Washington Post alums, and Media Matters for America, an alleged watchdog group founded by the recovering Troopergate author, David Brock. Ben Smith, then of Politico, took the lead. Shortly after the story broke, Smith ran the disclaimer that &quot;Barack Obama's campaign is flatly denying a story told by former Manhattan Borough President Percy Sutton.&quot; After some conspicuous waffling, al-Mansour denied the story as well. A self-appointed &quot;spokesman for Sutton's family&quot; by the name of Kevin Wardally sent an e-mail to Smith that read in part: &quot;As best as our family and the Chairman's closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.&quot; For Smith, even though Wardally had gotten Sutton's age wrong by two years, this e-mail was proof enough that Sutton's highly specific claim was manufactured. Wrote Smith, Wardally's e-mail &quot;seems to put the story to rest for good.&quot; Media Matters, meanwhile, scolded those conservative bloggers who did not accept the various denials at face value. Like the man about to be carted away in Monty Python's Holy Grail, the Percy Sutton story was not quite dead yet. Sutton's son and daughter told conservative reporter Ken Timmerman that no one in their family even knew who Kevin Wardally was, let alone authorized him to speak on behalf of the family. &quot;I'm getting better,&quot; pled Monty Python's nearly dead man. No, he wasn't. Nor was this story. With Hillary out of the race, no newsroom in America felt compelled to dig up dirt that could sully Obama. About that time, I found a diary entry that caught my attention. Radical-turned-actor Peter Coyote entered it at the time of the 1996 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Coyote wrote, &quot;I inform Martha that I'm dragging her to the apartment of old friends, ex-Weathermen, Bernadine sic] Dohrn and Bill Ayers, hosting a party for Senator Leahy. Perhaps Edward Said will be there.&quot; Said had taught Obama at least one class at Columbia. I had earlier seen a photo taken during an Arab-American community dinner in Chicago in 1998 on the fiftieth anniversary of the Palestinian nakba, or disaster. The photo shows Obama sitting next to Said, seemingly engaged in an animated conversation at dinner. The intimacy surprised me. At the time of the photo, Obama was an obscure state senator while Said, according to the Nation, was &quot;probably the best-known intellectual in the world&quot; and the star of that evening's show. He would speak on this occasion, as the Los Angeles Times would later report, &quot;against settlements, against Israeli apartheid.&quot; All of this got me to wondering whether an Ayers-Obama-Said-al-Mansour cabal had formed in the early 1980s back in New York City. If so, such a combine might have generated enough momentum to push Obama's career along. To see if Obama and Ayers had crossed paths before Chicago, I ordered a copy of Bill Ayers' 2001 memoir, Fugitive Days. It was then that I began to realize the depth of Ayers's involvement in Obama's rise to power. Obama would have needed help to get into Harvard. Friendly biographer David Remnick tells us that Obama was an &quot;unspectacular&quot; student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school. A Northwestern University professor, John L. McKnight, although a friend of Obama's and a fellow Alinskyite, reinforces the point, telling Remnick, &quot;I don't think Obama] did too well in college.&quot; As to Obama's LSAT scores, Jimmy Hoffa's body will be unearthed before those are. How such an indifferent student got into a law school whose applicants' LSAT scores typically track between the 98th and the 99th percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.80 and 4.00 is a subject the media have chosen not to explore. Nor have they asked how Obama paid for that education. Maybe it is time they ask the mailman. </p> <p>3 COGENT OBSERVATIONS BY BLOGGERS: OBSERVATION 1: Who needs a fake birth certificate, a stolen SSN#, and forged Selective Service Records? Answer: An ILLEGAL ALIEN. h/t smokeyblue OBSERVATION 2: You have to put this in prospective. When Mom married the Indonesian guy...she intended this to be a permanent move...so she gave up her U.S. citizenship and got Indonesian citizenship for herself, and junior. Now, by law....she had given up her citizenship on her own, but law dictates that she cannot give up the kid’s citizenship....that he would make this decision by age 18. So in effect, he is a dual-citizen for at least ten years. My humble guess, is that when junior went to Hawaii a couple of years later...because he just couldn’t fit into Indonesian life...Grandma took him in and no one in Hawaii ever asked many questions in this period. Somewhere around 18, Grandma realized some idiot had pulled the original birth certificate and noted it was because he was a foreign citizen. It was probably a mistake by some clerk...but it would eventually be fixed with some quiet help from some judge who felt sorry for the family. As for the foreign status? I think junior took full advantage of scholarships, and portrayed himself as some Indonesian kid all the way up through Columbia University. He didn’t have to mess with the selective service business....as long as he played the foreign card. Someone eventually suggests that this is stupid and he needs to clean up the mess. He gets the amended birth certificate, gets a social security number, and acts like some pure American kid. h/t pepsionice OBSERVATION 3: For a moment let's put the sleuthing aside and consider the role played in this affair by Harvard University and consider further how the left infiltrates and co-ops such institutions that play such an important quasi-public role in American life. It has become quite clear that Obama was accepted into Harvard Law School just as he was accepted at Columbia University undergraduate by virtue of his race and his levers of influence - what they refer to in Germany as &quot;vitamin B.&quot; If it were not so we would have seen his transcripts and his college board scores as well as his LSAT's to further burnish the image of the candidate who could walk on water, or at least cause the waters to recede. It is virtually certain both from the absence of any published contributions he made to the Harvard Law Review and from some anecdotal evidence that Obama was elected, repeat &quot;elected,&quot; to the post of president of the Harvard Law Review as a conscious and explicit exercise in affirmative action. No sooner was Obama elected to this post then he became the subject of national media attention partly because of the prestige and the institution. On graduation from Harvard, he was accepted as an instructor at the University of Chicago Law school where he also produced no written evidence of his work and seems not to have otherwise participated as an academic in the cause of the University beyond rather perfunctory performance as a visiting lecturer. So we have three of America's most prestigious universities, Columbia, Harvard, Chicago and probably Occidental as well, advancing a candidate beyond his proven capacities because of his race and passing him on to the next institution in the line with their imprimatur which elevated him one more step in the American social, economic, academic, legal, political system. Nor do we know how much influence politicians like Percy Sutton and Dr. Said had with Harvard and Columbia etc. We do not know these things because there is no transparency. Each one of these institutions enjoy great subsidies from federal and state taxpayers. So robust is the treasury of Harvard that it literally has hundreds of billions of dollars to invest. Yet Harvard like most of these universities accepts &quot;charitable&quot; contributions and the donor is excused from paying at least part of his taxes. Protected by this charitable tax deduction, institutions like Harvard have amassed billions in endowments with which it furthers its quasi- public but quasi-secret agenda. This agenda is quasi-secret in the sense that it withholds from the public an accounting of its policies. It will not release the grades of Barack Obama, nor will it release his LSAT scores. It will not make full disclosure about its admissions policy and why he was admitted to Harvard Law School with what was undoubtedly an inferior grade point and LSAT performance. It regards itself as above the law when it uses race as a sole factor, or at least a conclusive factor in admitting students such as Barack Obama. These institutions have explicitly said that they are above the law on these issues just as they have maintained that they are above the law as it applies to ROTC recruiting on their campuses. They presume to place themselves above the laws concerning the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. They operate their own police forces and flagrantly disregard the First Amendment and the right to conduct free speech on these taxpayer subsidized campuses, actually denying free speech to politically despised points of view by bureaucratic means or by the actual physical use of the police power. They devote the resources of the taxpayer supported institution such as a library and research facilities or their student body, virtually without exception on behalf of left-wing and sometimes extreme left-wing causes and candidates. Beyond all this there is the intangible prestige factor that the universities lend to left-wing causes. Harvard Law school, for example, will trot out Lawrence Tribe to either support or torpedo judicial candidates depending on their left-wing bona fides. Tribe is paid by Harvard and as time goes on these prestigious professors teach less and less and earn more and more as they are protected by tenure and collect royalties as they publish to captive consumers. Some even vault to the highest offices of land and become Secretary of State. The list of examples could be extended indefinitely but the point is that our quasi public, quasi-secret institutions, subsidized by us, are operating much like the Federal Reserve, quite beyond any accountability. The problem for us conservatives is that we reflexively and properly oppose introducing government regulation merely because the government subsidizes. Our problem is that the electorate votes in subsidies and conservatives who opposed them lose elections. Once subsidies are voted into place, the liberal demands the right to regulate. This process is carried to extreme and we will see the process eventually culminate in death panels and be justified because the government subsidizes healthcare. Of course, the left is selective in what institutions it chooses to regulate. Thus we have Title V of the Voting Rights Act in which the Atty. Gen. of the United States can, in effect, reimpose reconstruction without due process on wayward Southern states and decline to permit them to act against voter fraud but the blatant racial discrimination of our universities against white students, and now against Asian students, goes unaddressed. Somehow, conservatism must address the anomalies of places like Harvard. It is one thing to subsidize the search for a cure for cancer in the Harvard Medical School and quite another to subsidize Harvard Law School so they can produce a Barack Obama or a Lawrence Tribe and inflict them on America. We will not be politically successful in an attempt to undo the former but we just might be able to make some headway against the latter. h/t Nathan Bedford </p> <p>FORGERYGATE: Ignoring Arpaio's Report Is a Scandal in Itself </p> <p>By Jeffrey T. Kuhner - Is President Obama’s birth certificate a forgery? Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., believes it is. He recently held a press conference in Phoenix to discuss the findings of a new 10-page report. Mr. Arpaio’s investigators have come to a stunning conclusion: The long-form birth certificate Mr. Obama released last year is a “computer-generated forgery.” With the exception of The Washington Times, however, no major U.S. media outlet reported this bombshell story. The liberal press corps is desperately trying to suppress any discussion of Forgerygate — potentially one of the biggest scandals in American history. The media class is betraying its fundamental mission to pursue the truth. “Based on all of the evidence presented and investigated, I cannot in good faith report to you that these documents are authentic,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “My investigators believe that the long-form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in paper format as claimed by the White House.” The Washington Times story, written by Stephen Dinan, points out that Mr. Arpaio has called for Congress to investigate the matter. Think about this: A high-profile sheriff orders a team of former law enforcement officials to examine whether the president is truly a natural born citizen and that he has the constitutional and legal right to occupy the White House. Their official report is that Mr. Obama’s documents are shoddy and he likely engaged in deliberate fraud. And yet, most of the American press corps doesn’t believe this is an important news story? The liberal media has become rotten to the core. Ironically, the foreign press reported widely on the story. For example, Pravda — that’s right, the former official organ of the Soviet Communist Party — did an extensive analysis of Mr. Arpaio’s findings. The article by Dianna Cotter asks the obvious question: What are U.S. journalists afraid of? The answer is that the issue strikes at the heart of Mr. Obama’s administration: If his presidency is illegal, then all of his accomplishments — the stimulus, Obamacare, the contraceptive mandate, the government takeover of the auto sector and appointments to the Supreme Court — are illegitimate as well. The scandal would trigger a constitutional crisis. Following Mr. Obama’s surprise news conference last year, when he unveiled the long-form certificate, the media insisted that the controversy was settled once and for all. The &quot;birthers&quot; supposedly had been silenced. Mr. Arpaio’s report, however, changes that. The issue has been resuscitated — except in the eyes of the mainstream media. A prominent sheriff says he has damning evidence that Mr. Obama probably lied to the public. The international media believes it’s a big deal; many Americans agree. They want to get to the bottom of it. Yet, the liberal hacks at the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC can do nothing more than yawn. Contrast this with their treatment of President George W. Bush. Throughout the Bush years it was open season: routine comparisons to Adolf Hitler, charges of being a war criminal, calls for impeachment, trumped-up scandals like the Valerie Plame affair, investigations into the partying habits of his teenage daughters, stories about Mr. Bush’s drinking as a younger man, his National Guard service and mediocre college grades — journalists left no stone unturned, no questions unanswered, no topic was beyond the pale. Not with Mr. Obama. In fact, the opposite is true: Almost everything pertinent is not to be touched. He is the least-vetted president in modern memory. During the 2008 campaign, the liberal media deliberately propped up Mr. Obama. They suppressed vital information about his radical past and deep ties to virulent revolutionary leftists — the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Derrick Bell, Saul Alinsky and Edward Said. For all of their differences, they share one value in common: hatred for traditional America. To this day, Mr. Obama’s college transcripts, undergraduate thesis and health records remain sealed. We know little about his years in Indonesia as a young boy; his overseas trips to countries like Pakistan in the 1980s; his relationship with his mother and Muslim stepfather; and his time spent as a “community organizer” in Chicago. In short, the president’s past is clouded in mystery. This is not conspiracy-mongering, but objective fact. Americans have a right to know who their commander-in-chief really is. Instead, the media wants to bury any debate or inquiry into Mr. Obama’s background. Whether you believe Mr. Obama’s long-form birth certificate is a forgery or not, Mr. Arpaio should be applauded. He has done our nation a huge service. He is asking the press corps to look into an issue of the highest importance: Has the president committed a monstrous hoax and fraud upon the American people? In particular, the sheriff’s team has identified a supposed “person of interest” who they believe played a pivotal role in Forgerygate. The media must follow up on the story. If it is false, then Mr. Arpaio will be rightly humiliated and publicly discredited. But if — and I stress if — it is true, then the press will have unearthed a scandal that will shake this country to its very foundations. Either way, it’s time the media did their job and stop acting like Mr. Obama’s poodles. Forgery 101: Must see video that explains the adobe document layering </p> <p>Crazed 'Obamunist' Found Guilty in Arpaio Death Threat &quot;He will be filled with 1,000 bullet holes before the year is out&quot; A Tennessee man described as an Obama “fanatic” has been convicted of threatening to kill Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family, possibly in connection with the lawman’s investigation into the president’s eligibility for office. Adam Eugene Cox, 33, of Knoxville, was arrested Jan. 27 in connection with graphic online threats that came to light last October. Cox’s threats included: “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this. He won’t f**k with Obama. He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.” Authorities say Cox’s postings indicate – and his own mother confirms – that Cox is a “fanatical supporter” of Obama, and Arpaio’s ongoing investigation into the legitimacy of the president’s purported birth certificate may have been the reason behind the threat to kill the sheriff. As WND reported March 1, Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse announced there is probable cause indicating the document released by the White House last April that is claimed to be Obama’s original, long-form birth certificate is actually a forgery. According to Knox County Sheriff’s deputies, Cox has a history of assault. “I will not be intimated against pursuing this investigation into Obama’s eligibility to serve as the president of the United States,” Arpaio said upon Cox’s arrest in January. Several different Mexican drug cartels have threatened Arpaio’s life, placing a contract nearing $4 million for his execution. “Every threat will be taken seriously, and the sheriff knows that his position often attracts threats but he draws the line when his family is threatened,” said Deputy Chief David Trombi, whose detectives have overseen the threat investigations. The Cox investigation first took Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies from Arizona to California where search warrants were served on Google headquarters. Cox pleaded guilty to harassment of Arpaio, and was immediately sentenced to serve nearly a year in a “bootcamp”-style program similar to probation, as well as ordered to pay court costs. </p> <p>For-Betta-&#1103;-Worse Billionaire Back into Obama's Eligibility, Encourages Sheriff Arpaio — Note Praises Sheriff for His Investigation “Joe – Great going – You are the only one with the ‘guts’ to do this – Keep up the good fight&quot; </p> <p>NEW YORK – Billionaire Donald Trump is heaping praise and encouragement on Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the Arizona lawman’s probe into the authenticity of President Obama’s purported birth certificate and his eligibility for office. WND has confirmed with Michael Cohen, a top aide to Trump, that “The Donald” personally penned a handwritten note of congratulations to Arpaio following the Maricopa County sheriff’s Cold Case Posse news conference March 1 in Phoenix. NOTE: In case you missed the news conference of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Cold Case Posse,” you can view it here. Having printed out an Associated Press report of the event that featured a photograph of Arpaio and published by the Huffington Post, Trump penned diagonally in the upper left hand corner, “Joe – Great going – You are the only one with the ‘guts’ to do this – Keep up the good fight – Donald Trump.” Last April, after the White House released the long-form birth certificate that Arpaio’s law-enforcement investigators now have probable cause to believe to be a forgery, Trump told WND’s senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi that he would be willing to consider going public once again on Obama’s birth certificate if and when the issue resurfaced as a major news item. Trump has consistently maintained he has doubts the Obama birth certificate released by the White House is genuine, even though he has decided to take a low profile on the issue in recent months.

Vital Records Indicate Obama NOT BORN in Hawaii Hospital </p> <p>&quot;See, I told you I'm all Hawaiian&quot; </p> <p>This is part one of a 3 PART STORY which will present evidence discovered within the vital records archives of the United States, Great Britain and the Prefecture of Hiroshima, Japan which shows that Barack Obama exploited the municipality of Hawaii and U.S. Vital Statistics reporting methods in order to counterfeit birth records in a criminal attempt to deceive the American people and fraudulently usurp the power of the U.S. Presidency. </p> <p>Barack Obama’s ineligibility to be President remains the most troubling concern for the American people over the past four years. The issue outweighs concern over healthcare, the economy and the war on terror, combined. Despite spineless commiseration with Obama by the mainstream media complex, including abettors at Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, CBS and ABC, public sentiment demanding a formal investigation into the matter of Obama’s Natural-born status, and thus his eligibility, continues to grow beyond the control of our government and media. Soon, the vast and shocking truth about Obama’s otherness, based in part on evidence revealed in this report, will begin to rupture the constructs of Obama’s massive deception. Presented here for the first time, in coordination with longstanding evidence supporting charges of fraud against Obama, is documented proof demonstrating multiple discrepancies between the dates and locations of Obama’s alleged birth registration and uncorroborated claims that his birth actually occurred on the island of Oahu, Hawaii in 1961. Along with valid proof that the image of Obama’s &quot;Certificate of Live Birth&quot; is a digitally manipulated forgery, analysis of data on the image in reference with 1961 vital statistics reporting methods reveals there are conflicts between the vital statistics data educed about Obama and his ambiguous birth narrative. As this report will show, the proof of Obama’s fraudulence resides in the domain of publicly accessible records which show that the birth registration procedures, federal vital statistics reporting methods and organizational structure of the Hawaiian municipality expose these contradictions and reveal that Obama’s Hawaiian birth is a fabrication of modern administrative processes and that his actual natal biography has been actively and intentionally obscured by present-day governmental officials. &gt; &gt; CONTINUE TO PART 1 OF COMPREHENSIVE SERIES — PART 2 — PART 3 </p> <p>Michelle Obama Goes Beserk Over Birth Certificate Findings </p> <p>GLOBE MAGAZINE — When Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse released its findings and announced that there is &quot;probable cause&quot; to believe that the &quot;birth certificate&quot; released by Team Obama in April is a &quot;computer generated forgery,&quot; the liberal media yawned, but allegations are now surfacing that at least one person in the White House, namely First Lady Michelle Obama, is frantic and in a beserk frenzy over the Cold Case Posse's findings. According to a report released by the supermarket tabloid, The Globe, Michele Obama &quot;went beserk when she learned the results of the investigation.&quot; According to an inside source: &quot;Michelle stormed into the Oval Office and blasted&quot; Obama for not knocking down the scandal long ago. The report goes on to state that while she is furious with Arpaio, she is &quot;even more burned up at Barack&quot; and the incident has &quot;thrown their marriage into chaos. &quot;Of course, insiders have long speculated that the marriage has been in chaos for quite some time. As reported back in December, allegations also surfaced that Michelle Obama is having a secret affair with an unnamed Secret Service agent; and accusations by Larry Sinclair that he smoked crack cocaine and had an affair with Barack Obama in the back of a limo, some years back, refuse to go away. Understandably, the media does not typically report on unsubstantiated claims from anonymous sources, but that standard has become fuzzy as of late. We all remember the media feeding frenzy over unsubstantiated allegations against businessman Herman Cain, which literally sank his candidacy, and the reluctance of the media to report any credible claims that bolstered the contention that Cain was innocent of the unsubstantiated charges. Why is the liberal media refusing to even investigate these claims? Where is Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly and the rest of the conservative media? Such inconsistent standards of reporting leave the question open: will the media pursue, or even bother to investigate what should be the story of the century? Unsubstantiated claims are one thing. Cold hard evidence is another and it should go without saying that the findings of the Cold Case Posse should be a game changer. A legitimate and duly constituted law enforcement investigation, that obtained sworn affidavits and testimony from graphics experts, law enforcement experts and private citizens, has uncovered compelling evidence that the &quot;birth certificate&quot; released by Team Obama is a computer generated forgery and that the man who is presently occupying the Oval Office is potentially occupying that office as a result of fraud and forgery. While the liberal media is doing everything in its power to ignore the findings of Arpaio's Cold Case Posse, Obama can't ignore the findings; and if Mike Zullo, the lead investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse, is correct, not only is Team Obama not ignoring the findings, but the media's see-no-evil attitude may not simply be the result of liberal bias. Zullo just released another huge bombshell: “During our investigation, we actually were told that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators had been] threatened with their jobs” and the &quot;threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families.&quot; Author Jerome Corsi added more fuel to this growing fire when he recently stated: &quot;Testimony is being developed that the White House is intimidating, in a systematic way, the mainstream media and if any broadcasters dare go into this birther story, they're going to risk FCC investigations... people are going to have careers ruined... thrown off the air.&quot; Obviously, there is more going on than meets the eye and hopefully, more information will be forthcoming. Corsi claims that the evidence that the Cold Case Posse presented at the press conference was just &quot;the tip of the iceberg&quot; and he adds: &quot;There are very deep and important revelations that are being worked on and they are systematically coming out in the next few weeks.&quot; Once again, we are left to ask, where is the liberal media? Why is the reporting on such shocking allegations only coming from the supermarket tabloids? Why is Obama not being properly vetted and will the media eventually catch up to the tabloids and investigate these pile of stories that could sink the Obama presidency? Only time will tell... Developing. h/t America's Conservative News </p> <p>An Eyewitness Speaks Out About Andrew Breitbart’s Death Scene </p> <p>Los Angeles, CA — It was just after midnight when Christopher Lasseter was walking his little dog in Brentwood. He watched a man he now knows to be Andrew Breitbart crossing Barrington from the Brentwood Restaurant. Breitbart was walking without apparent distress in the direction of the Starbucks across the well-lit street. Once Breitbart stepped up on the curb, as Lasseter put it, “He fell hard like a sack of potatoes.” A man unknown to Lasseter called 911. The 911 operator told them to begin chest compressions on Beritbart until the police and paramedics arrived. The top left photo shows where Breitbart died on his back with his head close to the lamp post on the left and his feet under the newspaper vending machine to the right. Lasseter described Breitbart’s skin color as bright red. I obtained the interview on video but it’s now property of TMZ.com so look for it over there. TMZ.com's Harvey Levin is a well-known liberal, and for unknown reasons, is sitting on the tape] I will post a link here once it’s available. Post was never followed up]. We will be waiting with bated breath for the Medical Examiner's and the Toxicology Reports to know exactly what cut a young man's life short. </p> <p> Breitbart’s skin color was described as bright red — Cyanide poisoning is known to cause this condition. The skin of a cyanide-poisoned person can sometimes be unusually pink or cherry-red because oxygen will stay in the blood and not get into the cells. The person may also breathe very fast and have either a very fast or very slow heartbeat. Sometimes the person's breath can smell like bitter almonds, though this can be difficult to detect. Cocaine or some other stimulant also might have caused his red coloration. It doesn't sound like the widely speculated heart attack. In those cases, the victim turns pale, ashen, or even bluish.] </p> <p>The Creature From the Petri Dish — Marxist Barry Obama-Soetoro The mystery continues! Was Obama produced in a dish? </p> <p>By Judi McLeod (Canada Free Press) - Somewhere in the rear view mirror of time already past, a cocky teenager stood admiring himself with the heady confidence he would someday be the leader of a no longer Free World. Schooled by radicals and social misfits long fomenting for revolution, it was the influence of others and not his own scholastic achievement that saw him graduating university before being apprenticed as a ‘community organizer’. The teen would someday be able to choose his own name by trading the ordinary sounding ‘Barry’ for the ominous sounding ‘Barack’. Completely manufactured from scratch, he would make it all the way to the Oval Office without ever having to produce a genuine birth certificate or records of any kind proving his ignominious past. When history denies his mission to fundamentally transform America, it will take DNA to prove who and what was among us. The radicals who unleashed him on the Free World were both his Father and Mother. Through his abundance of natural arrogance, they instilled in him a sense of self importance and, a steely determination to take down America, all for the decades-long resentment they built up for for its standing in the way of statism since its inception as a Republic. They wasted no time on characteristics like compassion, values or any thing else from the proverbial milk of human kindness. Like the ‘progressive’ heroes the Barack makers adulate, they knew that so many of their brothers and sisters had been waiting for more than a century for One World Order. In spite of the fog of the unknown that surrounds him to the present day, the Barry who was to step onto the world stage as Barack Hussein Obama is, more than anything, a petri dish creature. Carefully nurturing him from childhood, the planners of One World Government, who had waited so long, were convinced they had the perfect candidate to make their every nightmarish dream world reality. The petri dish product’s time would come as New World Order leader. That he would at first be regarded as just another politician would give them the time needed to kill off America. Amid the confusion of his single-minded destruction, people would mistake him as incompetent and moan he was “in over his head”. Cold, calculating and self centered to the nth degree, their leader would be a silvery tongued orator, so long as he could address the masses through a TelePrompter. They counted on people not boning up on the wiles of Marxism. In truth, the carefully patented creation from the petri dish had no skills, no finesse and was, after scratching the surface, only an empty vessel guided by a dictated mission. But he looked good, sounded good and fit the bill. Throw in a couple of books where he himself could start the phony narrative, and they were away to the races. Guaranteed that their manufactured product was sent the world’s way without the blessings of the Almighty. Even though he dared to compare himself to Abraham Lincoln as a largely unknown and largely absentee senator, the completely designed leader of the New World was launched as presidential candidate Barack Obama from faux Greek columns at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. Like some are wont to do upon seeing a rock star, people fainted dead away as he began addressing the faithful during 2008’s campaign, just as people who faint on cue, would return for the 2012 campaign. Barack Obama’s administration rests heavily on Hollywood-driven symbology. More entertainers visit the White House to mingle with Obama’s unelected czars than folks from all other walks of life. The Obama 2012 campaign has a lot in common with Angels &amp; Demons, the disastrous sequel to the Da Vinci Code. The gig was up when people were smart enough to know that Jesus was not secretly married to Mary Magdalene and that a movie made from a 2003 detective novel stood no chance against the Holy Bible. Of his ambitions to play “symbologist” Roger Langdon in Angels &amp; Demons, this is what Tom Hanks had to say: “Why would I hand this gig to someone else? I’m not stupid. If you can make sense of The Da Vinci Code, you realise Langdon is a highly intelligent, interdisciplinary genius, and that’s the sort of path selfish actors try to land.” “Hanks, 53, had been Oscar nominated five times but acknowledged the Da Vinci Code has been shunned by critics.” (The Telegraph, May 5, 2009). “The movie did OK with its faked contrivances and goofy hunt through the Priory of Sion, but you should have been in Cannes with us when it opened. The reception couldn’t have been worse. Everyone slunk out of town with their heads between their shoulders. “We called it the ‘Bonfire of the Unsold Tickets’. Everything ended up in its proper perspective, which usually happens. The audience wins out,” he said. Today, Tom Hanks is one of Obama’s Hollywood hangers on, a caricature of himself. But he was right on target when he said that everything ends up in its proper perspective. One Worlders who figuratively grew Barry Soetoro Obama from a petri dish took big chances on perspective. You can groom somebody to talk the talk and walk the walk, but never make him an acceptable leader of the world without an audience who wants him. Their product has been out of its petri dish for a number of years. Now in the White House he repeats parrot like what he has been taught: I’m the one who will fundamentally transform America. Not declared but implicit are the words “and there’s no one who can do anything about it.” The One World Order agents taught their manufactured president how to hate America; how to swallow whole The Rules of Alinsky; how to blame America for everything that goes wrong in the rest of the world. Their Agent of Change can do all that with the same degree of obedience as one of Pavlov’s dogs. But outstanding among the things they couldn’t teach him: how to face massive rejection; that resilience, which comes from experience, cannot be manufactured in any petri dish. Neither can you grow stones or patriotism in a petri dish. So, even with all the cards in their deck stacked against the Free World, the evil that made Barack Hussein Obama have no defense against the legions who dare to tell them from the midst of their planned destruction: “Bring it on!” Comments </p> <p>Barack's Love Song To Alinsky — The Long-Awaited Vetting of Obama Commences! Breibart Unveils the 'Radical Past of Obama' From the Grave (Part l) This roll out is typical Breitbart style] </p> <p>In Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects--but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.) </p> <p>“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes. Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama. Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party. From today through Election Day, November 6, 2012, we will vet this president--and his rivals. We begin with a column Andrew wrote last week in preparation for today’s Big relaunch--a story that should swing the first hammer against the glass wall the mainstream media has built around Barack Obama. In The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama claims that he worried after 9/11 that his name, so similar to that of Osama bin Laden, might harm his political career. But Obama was not always so worried about misspellings and radical resemblances. He may even have cultivated them as he cast himself as Chicago’s radical champion. In 1998, a small Chicago theater company staged a play titled The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, dedicated to the life and politics of the radical community organizer whose methods Obama had practiced and taught on Chicago’s South Side. Obama was not only in the audience, but also took the stage after one performance, participating in a panel discussion that was advertised in the poster for the play. Recently, veteran Chicago journalist Michael Miner mocked emerging conservative curiosity about the play, along with enduring suspicions about the links between Alinsky and Obama. Writing in the Chicago Reader, Miner described the poster: Let's take a look at this poster: It's red—and that right there, like the darkening water that swirls down Janet Leigh's drain in Psycho’s famous shower scene], is plenty suggestive. It touts a play called The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, Alinsky being the notorious community organizer from Chicago who wrote books with titles like Reveille for Radicals and Rules for Radicals. On it, fists are raised—meaning insurrection is in the air. And down at the very bottom, crawling across the poster in small print, it mentions the panel discussions that will follow the Sunday performances. The panelists are that era's usual &quot;progressive&quot; suspects: Leon Despres, Monsignor Jack Egan, Studs Terkel . . . And STATE SENATOR BARACK OBAMA. </p> <p>Miner obscured the truth. His article only reveals only a small portion of the poster. Here’s the whole poster: SNIP] But is it a good thing to impress the sort of people who show up to laud The Love Song of Saul Alinsky? Here are the other members of the Obama panel: </p> <p>Leon Despres: Despres knew Saul Alinsky for nearly 50 years, and together they established the modern concept of “community organizing.” Despres worked with secret Communist and Soviet spy Lee Pressman to support strikers at Republic Steel in Chicago in 1937; the strike ended in tragedy when 14 rioting strikers were killed and many wounded in a hail of police bullets. Despres worked with another Communist Party front, the Chicago Civil Liberties Committee, but eventually left because of the “Stalinism” of its leaders. Also in 1937, Despres and his wife delivered a suitcase of “clothing” to Leon Trotsky, then hiding out from Stalin’s assassins in Mexico City. Despres and his wife not only met with the exiled Russian Communist, but Despres’s wife sat for a portrait with Trotsky pal and Marxist muralist Diego Rivera while Leon took Rivera’s wife Frida Kahlo to the movies. Quentin Young: From 1970 until at least 1992, Quentin Young was active in the Communist Party front organization, the Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights – a group dedicated to outlawing government surveillance of radical organizations. He was also a member of the Young Communist League. Young, a confidante and physician to Barack Obama, is credited with having heavily influenced the President’s views on healthcare policy. Timuel Black: An icon of the Chicago left, Black was originally denied officer training because military intelligence claimed he had secretly joined the Communist Party. Black also worked closely with the Socialist Party in the 1950s, becoming president of the local chapter of the Negro American Labor Council, a organization founded by Socialist Party leader A. Phillip Randolph. In the early ‘60s Black was a leader of the Hyde Park Community Peace Center, where he worked alongside former radical Trotskyist Sydney Lens and the aforementioned Communist Dr. Quentin Young. Black served as a contributing editor to the Hyde Park/Kenwood Voices, a newspaper run by Communist Party member David S. Canter. By 1970, Timuel Black was serving on the advisory council of the Communist Party controlled Chicago Committee to Defend the Bill of Rights. Timuel Black says he has been friends with domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, “going back to 1968, since long before I knew Barack.” In April 2002, Black, Dohrn and Democratic Socialists of America member Richard Rorty spoke together on a panel entitled “Intellectuals: Who Needs Them?” The panel was the first of two in a public gathering jointly sponsored by The Center for Public Intellectuals and the University of Illinois, Chicago. Bill Ayers and Barack Obama spoke together on in the second panel at that gathering. Communist academic Harold Rogers chaired Timuel Black’s unsuccessful campaign for Illinois State Representative. Studs Terkel: A sponsor of the Scientific and Cultural Conference for World Peace in 1949, which was arranged by a Communist Party USA front organization known as the National Council of the Arts, Sciences, and Professions. Roberta Lynch: A leading member of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and a leader of the radical Marxist New American Movement (NAM). Are we expected to believe that “Baraka&quot; Obama &quot;Baraka&quot; is one of Obama's numerous aliases], was a countervailing voice of reason on a panel of radicals? The reason that Obama's Alinskyite past, and his many appearances in political photography and video from the 1990s, are conspicuously missing from the national dialogue is that State Senator Barack Obama's reinvention as a reasonable and moderate Democratic politician could not withstand scrutiny of his political life. Because the mainstream media did not explore his roots, the American public remains largely ignorant of the degree to which Obama’s work with ACORN and his love of Alinsky were symbolic of his true political will. If any of the candidates can resist the media, and parlay Newt’s strategy into a nomination, we’ll have the choice between an imperfect but well-known Republican and the real “Baraka” Obama, not the manufactured one the media prefers. STAY TUNED FOR PART 2 — Looking forward to Andrew's promised incriminating videos. </p> <p>Obama Sycophant: No One Is Going to See the &quot;The Love Song of Saul Alinsky&quot; Video Sources inform Breitbart.com today that Pam Dickler, director of the 1998 production of The Love Song of Saul Alinsky in Chicago that included a panel discussion featuring then-State Sen. Barack Obama, has a video tape of the play. And she won’t release it. “There is only one archive tape of the play and I have it,” Dickler informed our source. “It is not in Chicago.” Dickler told our source that she doesn’t believe she’s ever watched the tape, and she doesn’t know if it “can be viewed.” But she added: “No one is going to see the tape.” She said she felt “very protective over it … due to all of the interest from conservatives recently.” She also told our source that the poster for the play was never supposed to be distributed. Dickler added that there were no transcripts of the panel discussion. “They didn’t know he was going to go on to become the president,” she said. “If they had known that, they would have of course kept any transcripts, but there were never any taken.” Mainstream journalists have attempted to dismiss yesterday's column by Andrew Breitbart about the play by claiming that Obama had merely attended the production--a defense hinted at by Chicago Reader columnist Michael Miner's initial column. However--as even Miner noted--Obama did not merely attend the play; he was featured on the poster and in the panel discussion that followed. So, if the play’s so harmless, why are Obama’s allies hiding it? Why not release the video tape? </p> <p>THE WORLD ASKS: Is There Anything About the U. S. President That Is NOT FRAUDULENT? Obama Makes Light of 'Illegimate Presidency' — But Panics, Resorts to Ridicule by Adding Phony Birth Certificate to His Facebook Timeline </p> <p>Many Europeans wonder if he might be the 'redux Austrian with above average color' By Chenda Ngak - (CBS News) President Barack Obama activated his Facebook Timeline Thursday, immediately following the switch over for Pages.

He alleged, among other things, that President Barack Hussein Obama’s birth certificate was a computer-generated forgery. Arpaio and his colleagues conducted this investigation over the past six months after being presented with a petition, signed by some 250 people from a local Tea Party organization based in Surprise, Arizona who were questioning Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Presidency. The team interviewed dozens of witnesses from around the world, examined hundreds of documents, and claim that they have taken a number of sworn statements from these witnesses. Arpaio said that not a penny of taxpayer money was spent in funding the investigation. Mike Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator, was rather critical of the state of Hawaii’s Department of Health. “Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” said Mr. Zullo. The team said that they have identified at least one person of interest in the alleged forgery of Obama’s birth certificate, although they declined to go into any more detail. They also asked Sheriff Arpaio to upgrade their investigation into a criminal probe that would utilize the resources of of his Maricopa County sheriff office. A number of experts in areas like forensics and photography were interviewed by the posse. Their conclusion, for the most part, was that not only was Barack Obama’s birth certificate a fraud, but so was his Selective Service paperwork. The sheriff today called for Congress to step up and to further investigate these concerns. “A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery,” Arpaio said. Arpaio and his colleagues insisted throughout the conference that this investigation was not done for partisan reasons. No one actually accused the President himself of committing a crime. Additionally, the team agreed that any subsequent investigation should take a “bottom to top” approach rather than aiming first at the President. Also speaking at the conference today was WND.com contributor and author Jerome Corsi. Mr. Corsi discussed some of the findings from his most recent book “Where’s The (Obama) Birth Certificate?” published last year. He also briefly paid tribute to the sudden passing last night of conservative hero Andrew Breitbart. Naturally, the reporters who showed up at the press conference acted rather noisily, asking Arpaio and his posse about their political views and complaining that their efforts amounted to nothing more than a witch-hunt of Obama. While accusing them of having a politically-motivated agenda, it was really the media that had its own agenda. As they usually do, the liberal press missed the point. The entire press conference took about an hour and a half. Characteristically, the Obama campaign reacted by tweeting what they said was a link to a “live stream” of the conference, but actually linked to a video from the X-files. Full video of the press conference can be seen here: </p> <p>Sheriff Joe Arpaio Exposes Forgery of Obama's Selective Service Registration To appear more exotic Obama has used at least 16 Social Security Numbers; but presently uses 042-68-4425 issued to Harrison J. Bounel, a dead man who was born in 1890. Go figure! </p> <p>By Floyd &amp; Mary Beth Brown - Having just attended Sheriff Joe Arpaio's &quot;Cold Case Posse&quot; news conference in Phoenix, Arizona, we candidly admit we have never seen a greater example of raw media bias in our 30 years of watching the fourth estate. Arpaio organized the cold case five-member law enforcement posse last year to investigate allegations that the Obama birth certificate released to the public by the White House on April 27, 2011 might be a forgery, and he said he constituted the posse after a request by 250 Maricopa County citizens. In less than an hour, Arpaio's team laid out a compelling case that individuals working under the President of the United States have engaged in criminal forgery. And most interestingly, the case isn't just about Obama's birth certificate. The case against Obama was made with simple, clear videos describing the techniques the forgers used to falsifying important documents released by Obama's team. It was obvious that the law enforcement professionals doing the actual investigation are real pros. If you want the details of the techniques used you can watch the videos on Westernjournalism.com. The Arpaio team devastated the legitimacy of Obama's purported birth certificate from Hawaii. The investigation by document forensic experts systematically showed how the document could not be real and is part of a criminal conspiracy to commit fraud. But we found the most interesting information presented to have nothing to do with the Obama nativity story. Instead it had to do with the selective service records. Forensic document analysis proved this document was also a forgery. Intensive documentation proving that Postal indicia on the form was forged was particularly damaging, as this type of postal fraud is a federal felony. In the days ahead, it will be interesting to see if the mainstream media provides any coverage of the event's allegations. Sitting in the room we were overwhelmed by the professionalism of these sworn officers of the law. They clearly used the best experts in their investigation. Finally a legitimate law enforcement official has looked at the evidence and found, as Arpaio said, &quot;probable cause that a felony has been committed.&quot; Going forward, Arpaio said that he would continue to investigate. Illusions were made to the existence of over 200 sworn depositions by witnesses in the case, including a witness that, when he met Barack Obama was introduced to him, as a foreign exchange student. If you don't believe us, go and watch the video of the news conference yourself; it is posted online. Obama's team responded with ridicule, not answers. His campaign tweeted links to an old episode of the X-Files TV show. But ridicule in the face of legitimate questions only works so long. Citizens are still daring to ask questions about Obama. And by doing it you face certain ridicule, name calling and being treated as children. Even when you may be asking legitimate questions, which have been routinely asked of presidential candidates in the past or have been asked of Republican candidates this year, you are censured. As WND.com has reported, &quot;Poll after poll in recent months has indicated that Americans have a high level of concern over Barack Obama's eligibility to be president; with one poll showing fully half of the nation wants Congress to investigate the question.&quot; But to date, nothing has been done. Let's hope the US Congress can have the courage of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies. Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies.

Then they became communists. We got to work on that. That is a parenthesis. Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.” Watch Breitbart’s Full CPAC Speech Here: </p> <p>Related Story: Andrew Breitbart On Dinner With American Terrorist Bill Ayers: He’s ‘A Sociopath’ But A Great Chef The Ayers &amp; the Obamas - 4 Peas in a Pod </p> <p>TheDC’s editor-in-chief, Tucker Carlson, won a charity auction to dine, along with five guests, with the two unrepentant radicals. Besides Carlson and Weinstein, the dinner included online media mogul Andrew Breitbart, Daily Caller columnist and Weekly Standard senior writer Matt Labash, Carlson’s brother, Buckley, and a Daily Caller contest winner. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, both Ayers and Dohrn were leaders of the communist, terrorist organization Weather Underground — a splinter group from the radical Students for a Democratic Society. The Weather Underground conducted a terrorist bombing campaign with the goal of ending the U.S. war against communist Vietnam. Attack targets included the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon and at least one police station. The two married while on the run from the FBI in the early ’70s. Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn auctioned off an evening for dinner in their home in Chicago and Tucker Carlson of &quot;The Daily Caller&quot; took advantage of the opportunity. For $2,500 Tucker and a few of his friends secured an evening with the radical couple. Tucker invited along Andrew Breitbart who called into Stephen K. Bannon's &quot;The Victory Sessions&quot; and gave a play-by-play of the meal. Breitbart said that they had &quot;no game plan&quot; going in to the evening, and that strategy produced an unforgettable event that the Ayers won't soon forget. Listen to Breitbart’s Comments on the Dinner Here: </p> <p>Thanks, You Marxist ******D!! </p> <p>Chicago: The Cesspool that Gave Us Obama </p> <p>By Suzanne Eovaldi - Chicago, the city that launched the career of President Barack Obama, now has the dubious title of being the nation’s most corrupt city, according to a lengthy study done by University of Illinois. Political Science Professor, Dick Simpson. He is pointing to the fact that “the Chicago area has logged more public corruption convictions by federal prosecutors than any other city.” Comprising the two worst crime zones, Simpson says are “the governor’s mansion in Springfield and the city council chambers down the hall.” His research revealed a staggering 1,531 convictions since 1976! Additionally, Illinois is the only state which will have two former governors in federal prison at the same time when former Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich reports to Littleton, Colorado’s federal pen this March. He was convicted for attempting to sell Obama’s U. S. Senate seat. In federal lockup in Oxford, WI, is former Republican Governor George Ryan, convicted for a complex scheme involving sale of Illinois drivers’ licenses to unqualified drivers when Ryan served as Secretary of State. In November 1994, when a horrific accident took the lives of six of the nine children of the deeply religious Reverend Scott Willis family , the cover up hit the headlines. Veteran cops, Ed Hammer and Russ Sonneveld “uncovered a pattern of bribes for licenses that filtered cash to the campaign war chest of their boss, George Ryan.” “Frankly, (this is) the most despicable case I’ve ever investigated,” said family attorney Joe Power. “Mr. (Ricardo) Guzman was not charged with anything.” Driver of the tractor trailer whose faulty tail pipe assembly fell off, causing sparks to ignite the Willis van, Guzman said he could not speak English and needed his brother to translate for him. “. . .how was he given a CDL when he couldn’t speak English,” the Willis family attorney asked? Guzman was neither charged nor fined. “The career of Barack Obama was launched in the salon of Bill Ayers,” journalist Andrew Breitbart told the recent CPAC convention. The Chicago Police Department’s mug shot of Ayers records hisarrest at the l968 Democrat National Convention. Mayor Richard Daley, the father, put out the flames of Chicago Burning when he issued his internationally famous “SHOOT TO KILL” order. “They’re not going to kill my police,” the elder Daley said. My neighbor who was a street cop at the riots told me he evacuated his wife and son just before tanks began rolling through the streets. So now, FOP Chief President Michael Shields is expressing worry that his force is not prepared for the massive combined NATO-G8 summits in Chicago this coming May 15-20. Only pressure by local media forced the city to shell out less than $200,000 to buy the CPD “3,000 plexi-glass shields for the helmets.” While the new helmet shields could protect their faces if demonstrators throw acid, urine, or feces at them, Shields worries police are not being prepared by city officials. Obama’s former WH Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who is now Chicago’s mayor is facing a real time situation as the call already has gone out by United National Antiwar Committee to converge on the city “to make the NATO conference the occasion for internationally coordinated protests.” Endorsing UNAC’s resolution are the Muslim Peace Coalition, Black is Back, International Socialist Organization, Code Pink and the Green Party, along with 42 other international social justice and anti war groups. </p> <p>Budget Insanity: Our National Debt as Household Budget </p> <p>Our exploding national debt would be hard to comprehend if it wasn't for this image from a chain e-mail that went viral. It is almost all accurate, except it gives Congress too much credit. Yes, politicians said they cut $38 billion last year. But the latest budget tables from the White House's Office of Management and Budget reveal that the federal government actually spent $362 billion more in 2011 than in 2010. (And it's not just because of the growth of Medicare and Social Security. Even what bureaucrats call &quot;non-defense discretionary spending&quot; increased by $5 billion.) Also, the e-mail is outdated — the debt is now up to $15,190,000,000,0000. It's like a family that has $151,900 in outstanding debt. We need to slash government spending everywhere, but allowing only 2% growth in spending for next 10 years would suffice. </p> <p>Reminder: Check out our Blog Feeds in the right column (Scroll to bottom).

Gallup gathers daily unemployment information of U.S. adults in the workforce, ages 18 and older, who are underemployed, unemployed, and employed full-time for an employer. However, unlike the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report that the administration cites, Gallup's data are raw numbers numbers and not packaged with seasonal adjustments. With seasonal adjustments, BLS shows the unemployment rate at 8.3 percent. Gallup also shows the underemployment rate is at 19.2%. Those who are underemployed, according to Gallup, are individuals who &quot;are employed part time, but want to work full time, or they are unemployed.&quot; REAL U.S. Unemployment Rate is 15.2%! By Aparna Mathur &amp; Matthew H. Jensen (American Enterprise Institute) - The official U.S. unemployment rate hovers around 8.6 percent (8.3 % as of today), but a better measure of the real jobless rate is called the “U-6” which stands at 15.6 percent (15.2 percent as of today). The U-6 rate includes those that would still like a job and have looked for work in the last twelve months, not just the last four weeks. That means the number of Americans hurt by the bad economy is almost twice what the official number would suggest. In fact, the official rate excludes workers who have decided to drop out of the labor market altogether -- either because they are discouraged or for other reasons -- and also ignores workers who settle for part-time work because they are unable to find a full-time job. Currently more than 5.6 million Americans, or an astounding 43 percent of all unemployed have been unemployed for more than 27 weeks. The tremendous increase in long-term unemployment is one factor driving the unprecedented disparity between the official measure of unemployment and the alternative measure (U-6). Long-term unemployment has a damaging psychological impact on workers' willingness to keep searching for work and motivates them to accept part-time work. As bad policy from Washington forces businesses to seek flexibility, the chasm between the U-6 and official unemployment rates may become a permanent fixture of the economic landscape. </p> <p>SHOCK STUDY! Obama's Dependent Regime: Government Dependency Index Shoots Up 23% Under Obama; 67 Million Now Getting Aid &quot;When the gubmint gives a man a fish, he eats for a day — if it shows a man how to fish, it loses another dependent voter&quot; (Quote courtesy of our blog founder, Bill Nalty) </p> <p>The American public's dependence on the federal government shot up 23% in just two years under President Obama, with 67 million now relying on some federal program, according to a newly released study by the Heritage Foundation. The conservative think tank's annual Index of Dependence on Government tracks money spent on housing, health, welfare, education subsidies and other federal programs that were &quot;traditionally provided to needy people by local organizations and families.&quot; The increase under Obama is the biggest two-year jump since Jimmy Carter was president, the data show. The rise was driven mainly by increases in housing subsidies, an expansion in Medicaid and changes to the welfare system, along with a sharp rise in food stamps, the study found. &quot;You can't get around the fact that policy decisions made over the past two years, on top of those made over the past several decades, are having a large effect on the pace of growth of the index,&quot; said William Beach, who authored the Heritage study. Dependence on the government has climbed steadily since 1962, when the index stood at 19. By 1980, the index had risen to 100. It stood at 294 in 2010, the last year for which the data are available. The D.C.-based Heritage Foundation has produced the index for nine years. The report also found that spending on &quot;dependence programs&quot; accounts for more than 70% of the federal budget. That, too, is up dramatically. In 1990, for example, the figure stood at 48.5%, and in 1962 just over a quarter of federal spending went to dependence programs. At the same time, fewer Americans pay income taxes, the report notes. Almost half (49.5%) didn't pay income taxes in 2009, the latest year for which the researchers have data. Back in the late 1960s, only 12% of Americans escaped the income tax burden. Other findings: The number of people dependent on the federal government shot up 7.5% over the past two years. In 2010, for the first time ever, average spending on dependence programs per recipient exceeded the country's per-capita disposable income. The dependency index has dipped only seven times in the past 49 years, three of which were under President Reagan and two under President Clinton. Some observers say the rise in dependence under Obama is merely a reflection of the deep and long recession. But Beach says his team's research shows that economic effects account for only one-fifth of the change in the index. In addition, the index shot up 8% in 2010, a year when the economy grew by 3%. Also, in the wake of the 1981-82 recession — which lasted nearly as long as the so-called Great Recession (16 months vs 18 months), and saw unemployment rise higher (peaking at 10.8% vs. 10%) — the dependence index climbed only 6%, then fell the very next year. The lingering high unemployment rate during the slow economic recovery under Obama could also explain the dependency rise. It's also possible that the growth in federal dependency programs is partly to blame for the ongoing jobs recession, not just the result of it. As the nearby chart shows, the time it's taken for employment to reach its prerecession peak has climbed the past four decades, right along with the growth in federal dependency. The current jobs recession hit a post-World War II record of 48 months in January, with payrolls still 5.6 million below their January 2008 high. Research seems to validate this connection. Various studies have shown that extending unemployment benefits can keep unemployment rates higher than they would otherwise have been. Obama's own former economic adviser, Larry Summers, noted in the 1999 Concise Encyclopedia of Economics that &quot;government assistance programs contribute to long-term unemployment ... by providing an incentive, and the means, not to work.&quot; </p> <p>What Happens When We Live Off the Other Guy? It All Ends in Riots! Nearly half of U.S. households receive government benefits. We’ve reached record highs of those relying on government-paid benefits, which is to say, benefits paid for by taxpayers, which is another way of saying redistributed wealth. </p> <p>OBAMA ZOMBIES ARE ALL IN FOR 'THE ONE' </p> <p>Which is another way of saying socialism. “I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious,” someone once said. No, it wasn’t Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul. It was Thomas Jefferson. If you’re surprised by that, take a gander at this: “…the poorest households no longer receive a majority of government benefits. A secondary mission has gradually become primary: maintaining the middle class from childhood through retirement. The share of benefits flowing to the least affluent households, the bottom fifth, has declined from 54 percent in 1979 to 36 percent in 2007, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis published last year.” Another ranting right-winger? Nope. That’s a direct quote from the Bible of leftward thought, the New York Times. A news story, no less. But the Times reporters, never a bunch to be labeled conservative, went on to say: “And as more middle-class families … land in the safety net …, anger at the government has increased alongside. Many people say they are angry because the government is wasting money and giving money to people who do not deserve it. But more than that, they say they want to reduce the role of government in their own lives. They are frustrated that they need help, feel guilty for taking it and resent the government for providing it. They say they want less help for themselves; less help in caring for relatives; less assistance when they reach old age.” So, back to our original question, “What happens when we live off the other guy?” Let’s revisit the Times’ explanation: “…they say they want to reduce the role of government in their own lives. They are frustrated that they need help, feel guilty for taking it and resent the government for providing it. They say they want less help for themselves; less help in caring for relatives; less assistance when they reach old age.” Erick Erickson opines on the subject here, pointing up the fact that, “The resentment will continue until it boils over or changes are made to put the social order back as it was intended — using the social safety net to help the poor, not subsidize the Middle Class.” That won’t be easy. Once they’ve enjoyed the other guy’s money, it will take people of strong character and moral courage to turn off the “free” flow of benefits. As we wrote some months ago, “Churches, private charities, private hospitals, privately run soup kitchens and families helped the less fortunate. But with each inroad by government, the roles of those institutions have diminished. Why donate to a private soup kitchen if the government is doling out food stamps?” Why indeed? “Before it became passé, people understood that to grab one person’s money to give to another person constituted theft, no matter how good the motive – or who was doing the taking. As James Madison famously said, ‘I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents’,” yours truly reminded readers in December. GREEK RIOTS: Greece, it seems, didn’t hear or at least heed Madison. What happens as a result? Here we have a relevant and timely news account: “Anger over proposed austerity measures reached a boiling point on Sunday as protests in the center of Greece’s capital turned violent. As tens of thousands gathered in front of the Greek parliament in Athens to protest, angry gangs looted stores and torched buildings,” according to the New York Times. The other guy eventually runs out of money. And once accustomed to living off the other guy’s money, resentment turns to rage. h/t Mark Landsbaum </p> <p>18 Staggering Charts On The Rise Of Government Dependence in America Americans are more dependent on the government than ever, according to the Heritage Foundation. Heritage's index, which looks at government disbursements from health and welfare to farm subsidies, jumped 8.1 percent in 2011. The share of Americans who pay no taxes rose to a record 49.5 percent. A record 70.5 percent of government spending went to dependence programs.

This is the old revolutionary 'mole,' not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through.&quot; — Frank Chapman (Democrat Student Socialist Alliance Founder) </p> <p>Another Obama friend, Dr. John Drew — who knew President Obama when he was a student at Occidental College, says Obama at that time 'was looking forward to an imminent social revolution, where the working class would overthrow the ruling class.' &#8596; &quot;Mind if I Bogart this joint, comrades. It's good for a mole's soul! You can't touch me! I'm a riddle inside an enigma wrapped in a mystery and topped with intriguing conundrums. So, F*** off — You F***ing Fools!&quot; </p> <p>Drew, who was the founder of the Democratic Student Socialist Alliance – states that as a Sophomore, Barack Obama was a self-described Marxist Leninist. Obama’s attraction to this radical ideology as a young college student could explain his absolute determination as President to pass the current “progressive” agenda of the liberal left. Unlike John, who transformed into a church going, Ronald Reagan conservative, President Obama never described a similar political evolution away from socialist thinking for himself.

It can be heard here </p> <p>Dr. John Drew is interviewed by Dr. Paul Kengor (Author of Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century”) as he guest hosts the Glen Meakam Show.

He got to know young Obama fairly well, and notes that Obama described himself at the time as a Marxist-Lenninist, and anticipated a revolution in the United States.

Drew notes that he has not been interviewed by the major biographers of Obama. I have little doubt as to why. </p> <p>TRANSCRIPT: Q: I interviewed you for my book Dupes a year ago and you had contact me a couple of years ago because you read a piece that I wrote for American Thinker and it was called &quot;Dreams from Frank Marshall Davis&quot; and it was on Obama's background and youth. Frank Marshall Davis was an actual Party member and that's something, John, I spent two or three years on investigating, but there's no question about it... the documentation is there, a 1957 Senate report called him &quot;and identified member of the Communist Party&quot;, there's an FBI file that's 600 pages, and I took ten or twelve pages from that report and put it in the appendix of my book. It even lists Davis' Communist Party card number, which was 47544, so very clear. Why is all of this relevant? Well, I think it explains, at least to some degree, that -- if he's not a Communist, he's at least very far to the left -- and has some very left-oriented views. But you met Obama when he left Frank Marshall Davis in 1980 coming from Hawaii and went to Occidental College. So tell us about when Obama got there and when you met. A: I see myself as Barack Obama's missing link from his exposure to Communism through Frank Marshall Davis and his later exposure to Bill Ayers and Alice Palmer in Chicago. So, as far as I can tell, I'm the only one of Obama's extended circle of friends who's spoken out and verified that he was a Marxist-Leninist in his sophomore year of college, from 1980 to 1981.I met him because I graduated from Occidental College in 1979 and I was back at Occidental visiting a girlfriend. I met him because of the relationship which I'd started my senior year at Occidental -- Q: By the way, tell us where Occidental is. We're way out here in Western Pennsylvania. A: Sure, Occidental College is in the Eastern Los Angeles area. It's a very prestigious, very beautiful, sort of very garden, rose-garden sort of college, with three- or four-thousand students Q: And pretty competitive, I mean Obama would have had to have good grades and been a good student to get accepted there A: Yeah, my sense is because of affirmative action, guys like me were going to Occidental instead of even better schools and guys like Obama were going to Occidental instead of, uh, less challenging schools. A lot of very successful people were there, were part of Obama's social circle at the time. Q: Now, was Occidental known for radical left politics? Would that have been an attraction for Obama? A: Yeah, I'm certain that it was. It was considered sort of the &quot;Moscow&quot; of southern California. There were a lot of Marxist professors, many of whom I got to know pretty well, not just there but also at Williams College in Massachusetts. Two of the same Marxist-Socialist professors were on the staff with me at Williams. Q: So, that might have been an attraction for him? I'm trying to think, what would have made him go to Hawaii to Occidental?Do you think Frank Marshall Davis could somehow have been an influence in having him choose Occidental? A: I don't have any evidence of that... Q: Because they won't release his records, I called them -- A: Yeah, I think that's odd. I don't know, I got straight A's my first year, it sounds weird, but I don't talk about it, Paul, you'd think that if Obama did well he'd release those transcripts. Q: Now, this is speculation, but do you think those files might hold a letter of recommendation from Frank Marshall Davis? Right? Why not? A: Wow. Q: Davis was a mentor. Davis writes about him in Dreams From My Father very warmly, in fact Obama writes that Davis gave him advice on women, on race, on life, on college. So, he must have recommended Occidental, but it's sad we have to speculate. If they'd just release these records... A: Well, this is what I know for sure, and this is why I'd sought you out, to be helpful to the historic record, is to verify that Barack Obama was definitely a Marxist and that, it was very unusual for a sophomore to be as radical, or as ideologically attuned as young Barack Obama was. I think people like David Remnick a biographer], they make it sound like Frank Marshall Davis had no impact on Obama and that his friend Mohammed Hasan Chandoo somehow converted him to Marxism at Occidental. Barack and Chandoo in an intimate moment </p> <p>And my impression is that Obama was the leader of that group and Obama was already very ardent and committed to Marxism. And Chandoo struck me as somewhat more passive. So it doesn't fit the story that I read in Remnick's story The Bridge. Q: And Remnick did not contact you, did he? A: No! No! ...Well, Remnick interviewed my girfriend, Carolyn Bosch -- she's on three or four pages -- and they interviewed a guy named Gary Chapman, a guy who was very active in the Democrat Student Socialists'] Alliance. Q: I like David Remnick. I use his book in my Compartive Studies class at Grove City College. A: He's a sharp guy. And he's got some good facts in there, but he didn't want to hear from little Dr. Drew... Q: ...You said that Obama was introduced to you at Occidental as a Marxist because you were one at that point. A: Yeah, that's embarrassing, but I had studied Marxist Economics at Sussex College in England. I had a junior year scholarship over there, and did my senior honor's thesis on Marxist Economics when I was at Occidental College. And I actually founded the Democrat Student Socialist Alliance, under a different name, in 1976... it was as Marxist as you could get, but they come up with a more general name while I was away in England. Q: ...John, you had told me before, and I'm reading from my book, that &quot;Obama was already an ardent Marxist in the fall of 1980 when I met him. I know it's incendiary to say this, but although he said in Dreams From My Father that he'd 'hung out with Marxist professors', he did not explain in that book or clarify is that he was 100% in total agreement with those professors. A: Yeah, you've got that exactly right. Obama believed, at the time I met him, this was probably around Christmas time in 1980. I'd flown out on Christmas break from Corness, where I was in grad school. And Obama was looking forward to an imminent social revolution, literally a movement where the working classes would overthrow the ruling class and institute a kind of socialist Utopia in the United States. I mean, that's how extreme his views were his sophomore year of college....I was a comrade, but I was more... the Frankfort School of Marxism at the time. I was, I felt like I was doing him a favor by pointing out that the Marxist revolution that he and Caroline and Shandoo were hoping for was really kind of a pipe-dream. And that there was nothing in European history, or the history of developed nations, that would make that sort of fantasy, that Frank Marshall Davis fantasy of revolution, come true. Q: So you had a realistic sense that, even though you liked these ideas, that you knew they wouldn't really work? A: Right... There were some] who were puzzled why they didn't see Marx's predictions come true, and weren't interested in the role of psychology or false consciousness in preventing a revolution from happening. I was a card-carrying Marxist, but I was more of an east coast, Cornell University Marxist at that time. Q: But Obama thought it was practical. He thought it could happen in America? A: Oh, yeah! He thought I was a little reactionary... or insensitive to the coming needs of the revolution! He was full-bore, 100% into that very, kind of simple-minded Marxist revolutionary framework. Q: And, also at this time, this is 1981, Jimmy Carter was President ?] and Ronald Reagan was yet to call the Soviet Union 'the Evil Empire' when he becomes President. Did you have talk about the election, about Reagan. I mean, that must have really upset Obama? A: You know, it's so long ago. My clearest recollection was that we were more concerned with more U.S. intervention in Latin America and the repression of Communist and Socialist forces like the Sandanistas and things like that... this sound weird, but there was part of me at the time that was ready to go off and fight with the Sandanistas against the Contras. I was pretty crazy, Paul... Q: Now this gets to a critical point and I know Obama supporters want me to ask this... to be fair, look where you were then and where you are today... A: Oh, yeah. Now I'm a Ronald Reagan, church-going, Baptist conservative, so... Q: So, what about Obama. That's the... trillion dollar question? ...We have to know this stuff about our Presidents, you can't leave this about biographies... A: Well, I think that he, I've challenged President Obama to explain how he evolved this Marxist-Leninist viewpoint he had in his sophomore year of college. And he's just never articulated how he changed. In fact, he's buried and, I think, lied about his ideological convictions of his youth. And we can trace it all the way to Alice Palmer, I think, in 1995 the Illinois state senator who he replaced]... who attended the Communist Party &quot;Politburo&quot; event. Or she was part of a big international Communist convention in Moscow! Q: ...And Palmer was with Obama in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn when -- and The New York Times even wrote about this -- there was sort of a political blessing, where Palmer identified Obama as his chosen successor... A: ...Well, I think I can knock down some doors here but stating that he had a very consistent ideology, I think, probably from the time he was in Hawaii] to the time he was with Palmer and Ayers in Chicago. I think his current behavior demonstrates that he still has some ideological convictions. When ever he talks about taxing the richest two-percent? I think he knows that will harm the economy. To him, the redistribution of wealth is extremely important. And he never took economics or science like I did. He went straight to law school, never had any business experience, never had a payroll to meet. And I think he's locked in a very dangerous mindset, where if he didn't fight to redistribute the wealth that he'd be violating his] ideology. ...You see people like Van Jones, who's an admitted Communist, you see Anita Dunn, who's praising Mao Tse-Tung, to me, it's like Obama's Marxist-Socialist ideology is hiding in plain sight! It's frustrating to me. It seems to me like people should be up in arms about this! ...I think whenever he talks about people clinging to their guns and religions due to economic stress, that's just the standard Marxist argument... he's still using the standard Marxist architecture, the way he talks about things. I think he's surrounded by people who share that mental architecture! ...I feel like our nation's life is at stake. Yes. It is. The time for action grows near. h/t: directorblue </p> <p>Obama Channeled Karl Marx During State of the Union — ‘Economic fairness’ Is Defining Goal for U.S. Socialist Groups &quot;When the gubmint gives a man a fish, he eats for a day — if it shows a man how to fish, it loses another dependent voter&quot; (Quote courtesy of our Blog Founder, Bill Nalty) </p> <p>By Aaron Klein - In his third State of the Union address last night, President Obama channeled the mantra of U.S. progressive groups by repeatedly calling for so-called economic fairness in America. Some progressives point to revolutionary socialist Karl Marx as divining economic theory that stresses “economic fairness.” Also, late Harvard professor John Rawls, one of the most important philosophers of liberalism in the twentieth century, named his own theory “justice as fairness.” Some have previously pointed to Rawls possible influence over Obama. Rawls calls for ensuring distributive justice of resources. The headlines in scores of U.S. newspapers and news websites today stress the centrality of economic fairness in Obama’s speech last night. “Obama makes pitch for economic fairness in State of the Union address,” reported CBSNews.com “In Address, Obama Makes Pitch for Economic Fairness,” reads a NY Times headline. “Obama’s Address Centers on Economic Fairness,” reported the Associated Press. Indeed, the fairness theme permeated the president’s speech. Stated Obama: “We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.” Obama argued that “no American company should be able to avoid paying its fair share of taxes by moving jobs and profits overseas.” He called for a “return to the American values of fair play and shared responsibility will help us protect our people and our economy.” Using the phrase yet again, Obama stated, “We need to change our tax code so that people like me, and an awful lot of Members of Congress, pay our fair share of taxes.” And another point in his speech, Obama stated, “When Americans talk about folks like me paying my fair share of taxes, it’s not because they envy the rich. It’s because they understand that when I get tax breaks I don’t need and the country can’t afford.” Obama has previously used other speeches to address “economic fairness,” including a major policy speech in December 2011 that also centered on the idea. Marxism Lester C. Thurow, a founder of the progressive Economic Policy Institute, explained in his 2003 book, “Fortune Favors the Bold: What We Must Do to Build a New and Lasting Global Prosperity,” that Marx related the ideals of economic fairness while explaining how capitalism must end. Wrote Thurow: “In addition to outlining the process whereby the system of capitalism would end, Marx went on to recommend a new system, communism, which would, he believed, eliminate the evils of capitalism. “He never said much about the transformation of capitalism into communism, but in his vision of communism (outlined in an article entitled “Utopia”) it would create a new society where economic fairness and personal freedom reigned.” Using the theme of economic fairness, Thurow went on to quote Marx’s own mantra, “To everyone in accordance with their needs. From everyone in accordance with their abilities.” Radical groups and ‘economic fairness’ Thurow’s Economic Policy Institute, or EPI, which is funded by billionaire George Soros, has reportedly been influential in helping to craft White House policy. This author’s most recent book, Red Army, documented how Health Care for America, the centerpiece of the EPI’s Agenda for Shared Prosperity, served as a foundation for Obamacare. Like scores of other major progressive groups, the phrase “economic fairness” permeates the EPI’s literature and policy papers. In fact, the EPI describes itself as a “nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank, research to achieve a prosperous and fair economy.” Last June, the EPI website argued, “Tax policy should be designed to promote economic fairness by pushing against the trend of ever-widening income inequality.” The EPI, together with other progressive groups, including ACORN pushed for a loosely described Economic Fairness project. One of it’s partners in that project, United for a Fair Economy, says it seeks to raise awareness “that concentrated wealth and power undermine the economy, corrupt democracy, deepen the racial divide, and tear communities apart.” The group’s official visions seeks a “global society where prosperity is better shared, where there is genuine equality of opportunity, where the power of concentrated money and corporations neither dominates the economy nor dictates the content of mass culture.” Another organization in the Economic Fairness project is Citizens for Tax Justice, whose catch phrase reads, “Working for a fair and sustainable tax system.” Continued &gt; </p> <p>* * * * * * * * * * * OBAMA &amp; SAUL ALINSKY * * * * * * * * * * * </p> <p>Saul Alinsky came up with the idea of power analysis, which looks at relationships built on self-interest between corporations, banks and utilities. Barack Obama was teaching students in Chicago the Alinsky Principles. Of course, this is not a surprise. After watching the bribes, kickbacks, lies and threats the past three years as Democrats took over the health care industry; and the crony socialism of the bankrupt green energy corporations, it’s obvious that the only subject Obama excels at is &quot;Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals.&quot; Isn’t it a bit odd that the only photo we’ve seen of Obama teaching, he’s explaining the Alinsky principles? Three of Obama's mentors in Chicago were trained at the Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation. (The Developing Communities Project itself was an affiliate of the Gamaliel Foundation, whose modus operandi for the creation of “a more just and democratic society” is rooted firmly in the Alinsky method.) One of Obama's early mentors in the Alinsky method, Mike Kruglik, would later say the following about Obama: &quot;He was a natural, the undisputed master of agitation, who could engage a room full of recruiting targets in a rapid-fire Socratic dialogue, nudging them to admit that they were not living up to their own standards. As with the panhandler, he could be aggressive and confrontational. With probing, sometimes personal questions, he would pinpoint the source of pain in their lives, tearing down their egos just enough before dangling a carrot of hope that they could make things better.&quot; For several years, Obama himself taught workshops on the Alinsky method. Also, beginning in the mid-1980s, Obama worked with ACORN, the Alinskyite grassroots political organization that grew out of George Wiley's National Welfare Rights Organization. </p> <p>Gingrich Attacks on Obama — Resurrects the Evil Saul Alinsky </p> <p>By James Rosen - He thankfully] died in 1972, at the age of sixty-three, a marginalized figure in his own obscure field and seldom mentioned outside of it. But to close followers of the topsy-turvy GOP presidential primary, the late Saul Alinsky is suddenly becoming a household word. This is due, in large measure, to the mantra-like repetition of the name by Newt Gingrich, who invokes it every day on the campaign trail as part of his stump-speech indictment of President Obama. “We need somebody who is a conservative and who can stand up to him and debate and who can clearly draw the contrast between the Declaration of Independence and the writings of Saul Alinsky,” Gingrich told a large crowd outside the Wings Plus restaurant in Coral Springs, Florida Wednesday. “The centerpiece of this campaign, I believe, is American exceptionalism versus the radicalism of Saul Alinsky,” the former House Speaker crowed to his raucous supporters on the night he won the South Carolina primary. “President Obama believes in Saul Alinsky's radicalism,” he said in West Columbia, four days earlier, “ and] a lot of strange ideas he learned at Columbia and Harvard.&quot;. It all begs the question: Who was Saul Alinsky? And another: Why does Gingrich think it effective messaging for him to conjure a man who’s been dead forty years, and whose name is recognized, in all probability, by one in every 100,000 registered voters? Born in Chicago in 1909, Alinsky was a trained archeologist and criminologist. In the early 1930s, he observed with fascination the rigid hierarchies and extraordinary social cohesion discernible in the Windy City’s large population of gangland mobsters. Intrigued by the way these poor and uneducated ethnics galvanized themselves into a formidable force, and managed to achieve their stated ends – however reprehensible – Alinsky wondered if somehow the techniques of organization used by La Cosa Nostra could be applied to the city’s ordinary disenfranchised dwellers. His first triumph was the successful rallying of a mix of ethnic Catholics in the rundown neighborhood known as “Back of the Yards.” With the help of the Chicago archdiocese, Alinsky mobilized these Irish and Polish workers and tenants to demand – and win – concessions from local slumlords and city hall. From that moment onward, Alinsky has been regarded as the godfather of that modern form of rabble-rousing known as “community organizing.” He would go on to work with steelworkers, native Indians in Canada, American blacks, and Chicanos. His work with that last group included his tutelage of a young Cesar Chavez, who in turn led the first organization of California migrant workers, and became one of the most celebrated activists of the twentieth century. While the antiwar protesters and radicals of the late 1960s breathed new life into Alinsky’s name and career, he occasionally expressed dismay with their attitudes and tactics. One occasion was the aftermath of the tumultuous 1968 Democratic National Convention in Alinsky’s hometown of Chicago. Television sets across America beamed violent and unnerving images of Chicago police officers swinging nightsticks against antiwar protesters, hippies, and students in Grant Park. When the tear gas evaporated, students and radicals approached Alinsky and asked whether they shouldn’t now organize in more militant forms, “the system” having failed them. “Do one of three things,” Alinsky advised them. “One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves. Two, go psycho and start bombing – but this will only swing people to the right. Three, learn a lesson. Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates.” As a young post-graduate in the 1980s and ‘90s, Barack Obama was schooled in – and taught others – the Alinsky techniques. To hear Alinsky’s disciples tell it, his model of grassroots mobilization involved three key elements: an unsentimental assessment of the bottom-line interests that could serve to unite ordinary, and often apathetic, citizens in meaningful forms of protest; a highly confrontational, take-no-prisoners approach to those holding the reins of power; and an unwavering faith that positive change can be effected by people previously uninvolved in politics. These principles Alinsky set forth in three books, most notably Reveille for Radicals (1949) and Rules for Radicals (1971), which found a wide audience amid the countercultural protests of the late 1960s and early 1970s.. “In this book,” Alinsky declared near the outset of Rules, “we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace…The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”. “Alinsky's whole style was very in-your-face,” said Marshall Ganz, a professor of public policy at Harvard University who began working with Chavez and the United Farm Workers in 1965. “He thought that making change required creating tension, so that people could learn and look at things from a new perspective….What Alinsky meant by ‘radical’ was somebody who does something about it, doesn't just talk about it.” “He liked to provoke a reaction,” agreed Michael Gecan, an executive with the Industrial Areas Foundation, an activist group founded by Alinsky.“ </p> <p>Newt Gingrich: Nobody in the Elite Media Wants to Cover Obama’s 'Saul Alinsky Roots' &quot;But the objective fact is Obama believes in a very radical vision of America's future that is fundamentally different from probably 80 percent of this country. And nobody in the elite media has ever wanted to dig into it, ever wanted--why would he veto the Keystone pipeline? Why would he kill jobs in America? Why would he have a National Labor Relations Board attack Boeing? Because it fits the model of Alinsky radicalism.&quot; SEE VIDEO </p> <p>Carney Asked if ‘Saul Alinsky Portrait’ Is Hanging in the White House During a White House press briefing on Monday, Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if the White House displays a portrait of Saul Alinsky for its staff to look up to. Carney’s answer was less than direct, and would seem to hint that there just might be something to the Alinsky portrait rumors. FOX News’ Ed Henry: “I wonder if you could clear something up — Newt Gingrich keeps saying on the campaign trail that the President’s vision comes from Saul Alinsky, the community organizer. I haven’t heard you asked about him but… Is there some kind of portrait of him hanging up in the White House that people look up to or is this BS? Jay Carney, Press Secretary: Have I said how much fun I had as a reporter covering Congress from 1996 to 1998? There was a certain bombast to it at the time. Lots of colorful things to cover ... Look, the President's background as a community organizer is well documented in his own books. His experience in that field contributed to who he is today. But his experiences abroad also included alot of other areas in his life. So I'll just leave it at that.

The earlier questions dealt with Obama’s birth documentation because of the numerous questions that remain unanswered over his eligibility under the Constitution’s requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen.” That’s thought to mean the offspring of two citizen parents, and possibly even the offspring born in the country of two citizen parents. That’s why some of the documentation routinely released by presidents before Obama seems pertinent to reporters. Among the other documents not released by Obama are his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records. He released a “Certification of Live Birth” during his 2008 campaign, stating it was the only document available to confirm his story of his birth in Hawaii. Then in 2011 he released an image of a Hawaii “Certificate of Live Birth” saying that confirmed his Hawaii birth. But experts in computers, imaging, documents and text all have stated that the image released by the White House is no more or less than a fraud. The first time Kinsolving posed a question about Obama’s eligibility, Gibbs’ response was to guffaw in unison with members of the Washington press corps about the concerns of hundreds of thousands of petitioners who demanded it. “Are you looking for the president’s birth certificate?” he asked incredulously. “Lester, this question in many ways continues to astound me. The state of Hawaii provided a copy with the seal of the president’s birth. I know there are apparently at least 400,000 people – (laughter) – that continue to doubt the existence of and the certification by the state of Hawaii of the president’s birth there, but it’s on the Internet because we put it on the Internet for each of those 400,000 to download. I certainly hope by the fourth year of our administration that we’ll have dealt with this burgeoning birth controversy.” Gibbs was referring to the “Certification of Live Birth,” touted at the time as the only document available. It was later supplanted by the “Certificate of Live Birth.” Bill Press later raised the question for Gibbs about whether the “birthers” ever would fade. “I almost hate to indulge in such an august setting as the White House – and I mean this in seriousness – the White House briefing room discussing the made-up, fictional nonsense of whether or not the president was born in this country,” Gibbs said at the time. “A year-and-a-half ago I asked that the birth certificate be put on the Internet because lord knows, you got a birth certificate and you put it on the Internet, what else could be the story?” But again, he was referring to the “Certification of Live Birth” that later was replaced. Even later, Gibbs stumbled over his explanation of where Obama was born. “I can’t tell you why somebody believes, despite all preponderance of the evidence, that the president was born … uhm … in … uhh, uhh … was born here and not somewhere else. I’ve stopped trying to explain that,” he said. </p> <p>Meet Obama's Green Robber Barons Brainy Obama Blows Billions and Billions on Bad Bets </p> <p>By Michelle Malkin - Had enough of fat cat Barack Obama, his jet-setting wife and his multi-millionaire Chicago consigliere/real-estate mogul Valerie Jarrett attacking the &quot;rich&quot;? Well, brace yourselves. You'll be hearing much more from the White House about the &quot;wealthy few&quot; who aren't paying their &quot;fair share&quot; as Obama's re-election campaign doubles down on class-war demagoguery. As usual, there's always a set of immunity charms for the privileged friends and family of the ruling class. When it comes to all the Green Robber Barons who've reaped an obscenely unfair share of billions of tax dollars from the Obama administration, the envy trumpeteers will be quieter than a nest of mute church mice. Obama's State of the Union address defiantly pitched a new round of clean energy spending orgies to help the &quot;middle class.&quot; But how have the serial bankruptcies and near-bankruptcies of several federally subsidized solar companies -- all under Obama's watch -- helped anyone but an upper-crust elite of eco-crats and their lobbyists and consultants? Bankrupt Solyndra, billionaire George Kaiser. In the wake of the half-billion-dollar Solyndra stimulus bust, company officials revealed plans to hand out hefty bonuses totaling $500,000. Months before the politically connected solar energy manufacturer went belly up, it was doling out bonus payments of between $40,000 and $60,000 to several executives. Last week, a local CBS News crew caught employees at the Silicon Valley headquarters trashing solar panel glass tubes worth an estimated $10 million. The now-abandoned Taj Mahal complex cost ordinary Americans more than $733 million. But billionaire Democratic donor and frequent White House guest George Kaiser, whose nonprofit foundation was Solyndra's biggest investor, is still sitting pretty. He and the other private investors of Solyndra will recoup their losses ahead of taxpayers. And while they blast their GOP opponents, double-standard Democrats will remain AWOL on the glaring tax-avoidance strategies of the wealthy Kaiser Family Foundation. Bankrupt Beacon Power, fat Democratic coffers. This green energy storage plant filed for bankruptcy last fall after a $43 million injection of Obama Department of Energy loan guarantees. Federal election record filings show that CEO William Capp contributed to the 2008 Obama campaign, as well as several left-wing New England Democratic candidates. Beacon Power lobbyist Steve Wolfe was a former aide to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. Beacon sought bankruptcy shelter two days after the White House responded to fiscal watchdogs' demands for a review of the DOE's shoddy loan monitoring programs. Bankrupt SpectraWatt, red-faced Goldman Sachs. A solar cell company based in New York, SpectraWatt went belly up last August despite a half-million-dollar federal stimulus boost and lucrative backing from politically connected Goldman Sachs -- whose ties reach deep into the Obama Treasury Department, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, White House National Economic Council and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. itself. The eco-failure was dumped in a fire sale for less than $5 million. Teetering Nevada Geothermal, cheerleading Harry Reid. Despite $150 million in federal DOE and Treasury Department subsidies -- not to mention personal lobbying by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- this alternative energy project is on the brink of failure. A Deloitte and Touche audit grimly concludes that the company &quot;has incurred net losses over the past several years, has an accumulated deficit of $44.0 million and an anticipated inability to retire its long-term liabilities.&quot; According to CBS News, the company's latest SEC filings warn of multiple defaults. My scouring of White House visitor logs shows nine visits from another Green Robber Baron, Illinois-based Exelon's CEO John Rowe, who met with the president and former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel multiple times. As Forbes magazine reported: The clean energy company &quot;has very deep ties to the Obama Administration. Frank M. Clark, who runs ComEd, helped advise Obama before he ran for president and is one of Obama's largest fundraisers. Obama's chief political strategist, David Axelrod, worked as a consultant to Exelon. Obama's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, helped create Exelon&quot; -- where he raked in more than $16 million over two years. Remember: &quot;Fairness&quot; is in the eye of the wealth redistributors. </p> <p>Another Reason Why Obama Must Go! By Michelle Malkin - The Land of Obama Make-Believe Where did President Obama go after killing off thousands of Keystone XL pipeline construction and manufacturing jobs? Why, Disney World, of course. Sabotaging work is hard work for Goofy and his pals. _And where'd he head after that? Why, up to Manhattan for more high-priced campaign fundraisers charging up to $38,500 per partier. The business of wining and dining politically connected donors ain't child's play, you know. Obama touted a White House foreign tourism initiative on Thursday with Cinderella's castle as his backdrop. &quot;America is open for business,&quot; he proclaimed chirpily to the rest of the globe. Tell that to the Keystone managers in Canada whom Obama and his State Department rebuffed -- after years of planning and review -- in order to appease militant environmentalists and Hollywood celebs. The Animatronic Divider robotically lambasted Republicans for pushing him to make a decision this week. But Senate and House Democrats issued the sharpest rebukes to White House obstructionism: &quot;President Obama's decision on the Keystone XL pipeline is a major setback for the American economy, American workers, and America's energy independence,&quot; Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., said. &quot;The rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline permit is a missed opportunity to drastically turn this economy around. This pipeline would have created thousands of new jobs and helped to ensure our energy independence,&quot; Rep. Jason Altmire, D-Pa., lamented. &quot;This delay is just playing politics with American jobs and American energy security,&quot; Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, pointed out. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle scratched their heads as the job-snuffer-in-chief bolted to Orlando's fantasyland to promote economic growth. But there's no more fitting place on Earth for the man whose escapist administration occupies the land of make-believe and no consequences. (Bonus moment: Obama got to shake hands with Mickey Mouse, who infamously turned up on a Florida ACORN voter registration form in 2008. Constituent outreach at its most surreal.) On the very same day he quashed Keystone, Obama released his first campaign ad of 2012 -- hyping his stellar record on energy jobs. It's Opposite Day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, 365 days a year. Even more comically, the ad touted his exemplary ethics record by quoting a moldy three-year-old endorsement from left-leaning Politifact. And as bipartisan Capitol Hill outrage over the half-billion-dollar Solyndra solar stimulus bust mounts, Obama had the nerve to sprinkle his inaugural campaign spot with -- wait for it -- solar panels. </p> <p>Obama’s Postmodern Vision — The Growing Tyranny of a Rogue Regime Will We Have Another Four Years of His Selective Reading of the Law? By Victor Davis Hanson - There has been for months a popular parlor game of tallying instances in which President Obama seems to have either ignored or simply bypassed federal law. But what started out as a way of exposing occasional hypocrisy is now getting a little scary. Most recently, President Obama made several recess appointments — a tactic that as a senator he once criticized — even though Congress was not in recess. In December, the president signed a $1 billion omnibus spending bill, but notified Congress that he might not abide by some of the very provisions he had just signed into law. During the Libya war, Obama felt that bombing Qaddafi’s forces did not really constitute military operations, and therefore he had no need to notify Congress under the War Powers Act. It is clear that Arizona is not trying to circumvent federal immigration law, but rather is desperately trying to find some way to enforce it, given that the Obama administration has selectively chosen not to do so. In response, the federal government is suing the state of Arizona, even as it assures illegal aliens that they will not be arrested if they have not committed a crime — as if Obama can by himself decide that illegally entering and residing in the United States is not a federal crime in the first place. President Obama argued that it was constitutional to force citizens to purchase federalized health care, and that all Americans would be subject to his new health-care law — except some 2,000 businesses and organizations that were given politically driven waivers. Obama decided to reverse the legal order of creditors in the bailout of a bankrupt Chrysler Corporation in favor of more politically suitable constituencies. The administration does not like the Defense of Marriage Act, and therefore announced that it won’t enforce it. When a federal judge struck down an Obama- administration ban on new leases for gas and oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Obama for a time ignored the injunction. When a BP oil leak in the Gulf outraged America, the president met with company executives and announced that they had agreed to set up a $20 billion “fund” to pay for imminent damage claims — as if our chief executive now meets with culpable private businesses to assess what he thinks they should pony up to avoid federal retaliation. Every administration, of course, has constitutional disputes with Congress, the courts, and the public over the exact limits of its power. But in the case of the Obama administration there is a new sort of lawlessness unseen in recent governments. Is that predictable or surprising, given Obama’s own constant references to himself as a former constitutional scholar and community organizer? Both as a state legislator and as a U.S. senator, Obama blasted as unconstitutional or abuses of presidential power almost all of the Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism protocols — Guantanamo, renditions, military tribunals, preventive detention, the Patriot Act — which as president he later embraced or expanded. Apparently, Obama’s own status as an out-of-power senator or an in-power president, and the degree to which such issues were or were not politically useful to his larger agenda, alone determined whether something like renditions or military tribunals was lawful. Other than the normal explanations of abject hypocrisy and political expediency, why has the Obama administration shown such a disdain for the integrity of the law? In a word, Obama is a postmodernist. That is a trendy word for someone who leaves academia believing that there are not really absolute facts, but merely competing ideas and discourses. In this view, particular ideologies unfortunately gain credibility as establishment icons only from the relative advantage that arises from race, class, and gender biases. In postmodern jurisprudence, “critical legal theory” postulates that law and politics are inseparable. Those with power call their self-serving rules “the law.” But “laws” are not sacrosanct. Instead, they are mere embedded reflections of wealthy, white, and male privilege — dressed up in some bogus timeless concept of “justice.” A few critical and progressive minds among the legal technocracy have the ability to spot these fictions. And thus a Barack Obama or an Eric Holder has a duty on our behalf to use his training to make the necessary corrections, even if the rest of us don’t quite fathom what is going on. Federal voting-rights laws, for example, do not mean ensuring that no one intimidates voters. Hardly. They are instead fluid and relative, properly focusing only on those who are not now intimidating voters but whose ancestors might have, while exempting those who now are but whose ancestors might have been intimidated. Whether Congress is, or is not, in recess, or whether wealthy bondholders should be paid back before working-class union pensioners, or whether some company should or should not be allowed to drill in the Gulf — these and others are moral and political, but not necessarily legal, issues. To the degree that he can, on any given challenge Obama assesses the politics of favoring his constituency of the “poor” and “middle class,” and then uses the necessary legal gymnastics post facto to offer the veneer of lawfulness. If someone is breaking a federal “law” by entering Arizona illegally from Mexico, there must be a way to make the enforcer of that “law” the real suspect — given that a Sheriff Joe Arpaio is by allegiance of the privileged 1 percent and those whom he arrests most surely are not. Consumers are deemed to need federal help more than do lenders; accordingly, Congress “really” is now in recess. In other words, we are witnessing with this administration the ancient idea of the supposedly exalted ends justifying the somewhat ambiguous means — albeit dressed up in trendy Ivy League legalese and progressive moralizing. Our postmodern president is not content with just picking and choosing which laws he will follow in advancing his social agenda. The war against the myth of disinterested Western jurisprudence extends also to free-market economics, as we see with the monotonous demonization of the so-called 1 percent and those who make over $200,000 per year. Sometime after January 2009, we learned that the “wealthy” did not gain their riches by a wide variety of what we once thought were legitimate means — luck, inheritance, work, health, intelligence, expertise, experience, education, or an overriding desire for money and status, coupled with an avoidance of classical sins like sloth, crime, and drunkenness. Rather, we were taught that there was something else going on, something innately unfair in the manner in which we are arbitrarily compensated. In some sense, we are back to the old notion of a labor theory of value (e.g., an hour of working at Starbucks is inherently no less valuable to our society in terms of how much the worker should be paid than an hour crafting a deal at Goldman Sachs). The role, then, of government is not to ensure an equality of opportunity — which is impossible, given inherent and unending race, class, and gender exploitations — but to strive for an equality of result. That utopian task demands that the best and the brightest in government redistribute capital, or rather use the state to make right what the private sector has distorted. (Of course, no one dares to suggest that Obama himself is cynically interested mostly in power and the delights thereof — and so as a postmodernist he simply constructs these egalitarian stage-sets as a means to enjoy the privileges of the technocratic class that he surrounds himself with.) Tally up Obama’s early and recent unrehearsed and unguarded quips about wealth — “Spread the wealth”; his regrets that the Supreme Court has not addressed “redistributive change”; his concern that some have not realized that they already have made “enough” money; his warnings that now is not the time for “profit.” That serial message bookends the president’s slurs about millionaires and billionaires, corporate-jet owners, fat-cats, profit-driven doctors, and Vegas and Super Bowl junketeers. All this unscripted editorializing reflects a recurring theme: Those with superior intelligence and higher moral authority must correct for warped private-sector compensation and human greed. And they can do that by deciding roughly how much each of us deserves to end up with. In concrete terms, this pop socialism leads Obama to wish to enact more regulations, higher taxes on fewer taxpayers, and more on entitlements. Larger government can absorb health care and also many private-sector companies, as more federal and state workers likewise can even out the playing field. Near-zero interest rates, and renegotiating mortgage or student loans, along with higher deficits, more national debt, and expansionary monetary policy are likewise means to correct the inherent imbalances of the system and counter the greed of a few among us. It does not matter that much whether, in the attempt to do all that, the better-off must be demonized with crude sloganeering. It does not matter that the poor must be caricatured as Steinbeck’s Joads, starving and poorly clothed, lacking iPhones, $200 sneakers, and big-screen TVs. It does not matter that 20th-century phenomena like National Socialism, Communism, and the European Union — and any other crackpot effort of a self-anointed elite to redistribute wealth and expand the state under the banner either of nationalism, or the global proletariat, or enlightened world citizens — have led only to poverty and chaos, at least for those outside the small exempt managerial class that implements, profits from, and often survives the ensuing disaster. What makes Barack Obama a different president is not his racial heritage, his liberal outlook, or his mellifluous cadences, but rather the banal idea that the United States is fundamentally in need of this sort of radical change, and that only a select few like himself have the insight and skills necessary to both implement and preside over it. We simply have not seen that redistributive ideology in a president since Jimmy Carter, and then only in part. So far the biggest edge for Obama is his inability to push more of his agenda through first a friendly and now a not-so-friendly Congress — as if to say, “How could I be a redistributionist when they did not let me redistribute as planned?” The fulfillment of that old vision of mandated equality of result is what the 2012 election is about — nothing more, nothing less. </p> <p>— NRO contributor Victor Davis Hanson is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author most recently of the just-released The End of Sparta, a novel about ancient freedom. </p> <p>Why My Cousin Failed — After Three Years of Shiftless Barack, We Are Hopeless and Changeless By Dr. Milton Wolf (President Obama's 2nd cousin on the McCurry side of family) - Here’s something profoundly tragic about the failed presidency of Barack Obama. He was supposed to be a new kind of president, a man who embodied hope and would transcend petty politics and even race. Instead, we’re left with a downgraded America that is stagnating under the weight of its bloated government. As tragic as that alone is, even this is but a mere symptom of Mr. Obama’s larger fundamental failure: He simply does not trust the Americans who entrusted him with the presidency. Most presidents, we believe, ascend to the Oval Office, but for the 44th president, the reverse seems true. Whatever majesty the White House can muster must rise to the grandiosity of Barack Obama. “We are the ones we have been waiting for,” said the man who writes autobiographies and later would claim to control the rise of the oceans. As recently as this month, the food-stamp president of 13 million unemployed Americans declared himself the fourth-most-accomplished president in the history of the United States, eclipsing, in his own mind, President Reagan and even our nation’s father, George Washington. That in only three years. Barack the Magnificent won’t allow trivialities like $15 trillion debts or historic national credit downgrades dissuade him. Mr. Obama may care deeply for America, but he believes in only one thing: Barack Obama. And you are not Barack Obama. Where once the American flag was hailed universally as the ultimate symbol of freedom, we who live under it have slowly but surely surrendered our liberties to an insatiable government. Consider our decline in just the past two generations. Our grandfathers, who stood against evil and shed their blood to stop it, never would have tolerated their own government becoming so totalitarian that it would dictate to them what car they should drive, what (if any) health insurance they should choose or even what light bulb they should buy. Has our generation been worthy of earlier Americans’ sacrifices? Or have we surrendered their hard-fought victories in return for false promises of a big-government utopia that never materializes? Look no further than the politicians we elect. We have chosen as our president a man who believes we are unworthy, not of the previous generations’ sacrifices, but rather unworthy of freedom itself. The sum total of Mr. Obama’s political philosophy, the unifying theme of his presidency, amounts to this: You cannot be trusted to live as a free American. President Obama’s first major legislative action, the failed $787 stimulus, revealed his fundamental distrust of free Americans. A president who actually trusts his people would stand aside as they freely chose how to invest their capital and their labor. Mr. Obama, on the other hand, simply doesn’t believe you are smart enough to know what’s best for you. He commandeered nearly $1 trillion dollars from the taxpayers and redirected it as he saw fit. That he squandered billions on crony boondoggles such as the Solyndra solar-panel company or laughable efforts to measure the malt-liquor habits of Buffalonians and the like is evidence merely of his incompetence. That he trusted only himself to allocate taxpayers’ money in the first place - even if he had had the capacity to do so brilliantly - is evidence of a much larger offense: This president distrusts his subjects. Obamacare is a modern-day monument to government arrogance. So untrustworthy are Americans that they cannot be allowed to decide for themselves whether to purchase health insurance or, if so, how much. Likewise, physicians are too untrustworthy to provide you with care without first consulting the government’s “best practices” guidelines. Obamacare would solve both. Untrustworthy bankers would become angelic under the restrictions of Dodd-Frank. Untrustworthy bloggers would fall in line under the Stop Online Piracy Act. Untrustworthy manufacturers would create the only jobs worth having under the dictates of the National Labor Relations Board. And untrustworthy energy consumers would act responsibly only under the restrictions of “cap and trade” or at least a dictatorial Environmental Protection Agency. For statists like Mr. Obama, no matter how bloated our government has become, America is forever just one legislative act away from utopia, if only those untrustworthy Americans would just get in line. The man who ran on hope has instead embraced a tragic pessimism that views all free Americans with disdain as either incompetent rubes in need of his salvation or unrighteous villains in need of his rules. Either way, Mr. Obama embraces a command-and-control government and rejects American freedom. Mr. Obama’s distrust of Americans is his fatal flaw, and Republicans would be wise to exploit it fully. The GOP should resist the temptation simply to become a cleverer version of autocrats who pull the same powerful levers of government but in different directions. Instead, they should become the party that embraces liberty. If the 2012 election is between Republicans and Democrats or even between conservatives and liberals, Republicans might win. But if the election is instead between a bloated, ineffectual government that distrusts its subjects and Americans who still yearn to breathe free, Republicans will win. Only then will voters have a dramatic choice between a party that trusts Americans to be free and a party that does not. </p> <p>Dr. Milton R.

The average American’s net worth has dropped 8 percent during the past six years, while members of Congress got, on average, 15 percent richer, according to a New York Times analysis of financial disclosure. The median net worth of members of Congress is about $913,000, compared with about $100,000 for the country at large, the Times’ analysis found. This wealth disparity between lawmakers and the people they represent seems to becontinually growing. Nearly half of Congress — 249 members — are millionaires, while only 5 percent of American households can make the same claim. Even among the super rich, members of Congress fare better than other wealthy Americans. While the net worth of the richest 10 percent of Americans has remained stagnant since 2004, lawmakers’ net worth has seen double-digit growth, the Times reports. Members of the House have fared especially well. From 1984 to 2009, the average net worth of the 435 House reps more than doubled, from $280,000 to $725,000, not including home equity, according to a Washington Post analysis of financial disclosures. And while lawmakers in the “people’s house” grew significantly richer, the people they represent became slightly poorer, with the average wealth of an American household dropping from $20,600 to $20,500 over the same time period, the Post reports. This growing disparity may be due, in part, to the rising cost of campaigning, which may deter less-affluent citizens from seeking public office. To win a House seat, candidates spent an average of $1.4 million in 2010, four times as much as was spent in 1976, according to the Federal Election Commission. Winning a Senate seat is nearly 10 times as expensive, with the average successful Senate campaign shelling out nearly $10 million in 2010. </p> <p>POLL: New High - 48% Say Most Members of Congress Are Corrupt </p> <p>The belief that politicians use their office for personal gain is growing. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that most members of Congress are corrupt. Just 28% disagree, and another 24% are not sure. The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on December 27-28, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports.

Martha Trowbridge's Latest UPDATE (2) on Her Hypothesis that Barack Obama Is the 'Biological Son of Malcom X' EDITOR'S NOTE] The always interesting (some say fanciful) researcher Martha Trowbridge contends that Barack is really Bâri’ M. Shabazz, the biological son of Malcolm X with one of his sycophantic followers named Jo Ann Newman (not the purported Stanley Ann Dunham), and who Trowbridge says is very much alive. In her latest Update (2), Trowbridge now posits that Jo Ann Newman's uncle, the self-avowed Marxist Frederick &quot;Delano&quot; Newman, PhD – a.k.a. Fred Newman ushered Obama up the political ladder (“Barack Obama didn’t come from ‘nowhere’ - and he didn’t do it on his own&quot;). You'll want to know more about this Newman character who died July 3, 2011 at the age of 76 after you read the following Update so we've provided the links below. Oh, by the way, Trowbridge also says &quot;Hope and Change&quot; is the brainchild of this radical socialist activist Fred Newman who was a founder of the New Alliance Party. Although Trowbridge as yet provides no substantiation for her claims, it would be 'damn chaotic' is she's on to something. Fred Newman - Wikipedia — Frederick D. Newman Obituary — Frederick Delano Newman Video Obama, RUI: Running Under The Influence Of “Uncle Fred” By Martha Trowbridge - If you’ve been wondering why New Yorker Jo Ann Newman – the mother of “Barack Obama” – was cloaked in the synthetic identity of a girl from Kansas, then transplanted to America’s farthest western reaches, wonder no more. Soon, you’ll know exactly why The Obama Campaign created “Stanley Ann Dunham”, and set her far, far away from the Bronx. It wasn’t just to hide her sexual relationship with Malcolm X. The Obama Campaign plunked Jo Ann Newman – disguised as “Stanley Ann Dunham” – in America’s Heartland to conceal her close biological relationship with Frederick “Delano” Newman, PhD – a.k.a. Fred Newman. “Uncle Fred”, that is. Oh-oh. I’d better ssssh – Fred’s a closely guarded family secret. Once you meet him, you’ll see why. “Uncle Fred” is politically toxic to “Barack Obama”. Frederick Delano &quot;Fred&quot; Newman So toxic, that when he was steppin’ out, if America met his “Uncle Fred”, “Barack Obama” would never have become a story. There wouldn’t even have been a Chapter One. It’s not just Fred Newman’s DESTROY AMERICA’S FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES that make him political poison for “Barack Obama”. Nor is it just Fred’s scheme to DESTROY CAPITALISM. As you will see, it’s the very nature of “Uncle Fred’s” psyche that “Barack Obama” had to hide. A psyche that, among other things, sought to DESTROY THE AMERICAN FAMILY. And to snuff out the spirit of America’s treasured Judaeo-Christian principles. America, permit me to introduce you to “Uncle Fred”. Once you meet him, you’ll finally understand “Barack Obama”. You’ll totally ‘get’ why no one could ever know his mother was a Newman. And you’ll come to comprehend, as did I, that the Malcolm X angle motivation for creation of the synthetic identity “Stanley Ann Dunham” pales in significance, compared to the Fred Newman angle. Because this post is so important, I will not tire you, detailing Dr. Fred Newman’s accomplishments for the radical left - like his New Alliance Party, The Independence Party Of New York, and his management of African American] Dr. Lenora Fulani’s two Presidential Campaigns. I will not exhaust you with elaborate discussion of Fred’s formation of the International Workers Party IWP] - the purpose of which was to effect an international socialist revolution. And I will not require too much of your time, examining Fred Newman’s CFCs - Centers For Change. Or his signature psychotherapy, that blended his “friendosexuality” model with mandatory socialist political activism. Or his creation of All Stars Project - a program for youth that’s raised more than a few eyebrows. http://lyndonlarouchewatch.org/devloan.htm] There’s so much about “Uncle Fred” of which most Americans have no clue! Which is exactly how The Obama Campaign needed it to be. After reading this post, if you want to spend time really getting to know “Uncle Fred” by his works, stop by here: http://www.publiceye.org/newman/cloudsblur.html] In particular, review “Fred Newman And The Historical Roots Of The Newmanites” http://www.publiceye.org/newman/nap4.html] Another perspective: “PsychoPolitics: Inside The Independence Party Of Fred Newman” http://www.rickross.com/reference/new_alliance/new_alliance52.html] Thoughts and feelings from former ‘Newmanites’: http://ex-iwp.org/] So much to learn about “Uncle Fred”! So little time! For now, America, let’s just meet Fred Newman. Let’s meet this “Barack Obama” “family secret” man in his own words. And in the words of some of those who knew him. Reportedly, on 17 June 1935, Fred was born to Jewish parents and raised in working-class Bronx County, New York City, not far from Yankee Stadium. Viewing his Stuyvesant High School Yearbook from 1952, you’d never know what radical thoughts were a-brew in his head.

Martha Trowbridge's Latest UPDATE (1) on Her Hypothesis that Barack Obama Is the 'Biological Son of Malcom X' “Obama History” Mystery Buffs: Sniff Here By Martha Trowbridge - Way back when, in spring 1990, when Harvard Law School student “Barack Obama” was interviewed by Associated Press, he uttered three little words. Three little Truth-ful words. Today, at Terrible Truth, they return, full force, to haunt him. Which is astonishing – for they were tiny little words. No doubt uttered in a moment of carelessness. A minor slip-up in the otherwise ‘perfect’ presentation of the personal history he was presenting to America. How big a deal could they turn out to be? Besides, “The Obama Narrative” was in test mode. Let’s give the guy a break – in spring 1990, he couldn’t help but feel exuberant. How well his political plans were progressing! He’d just been named Harvard Law Review Editor. His name, his face, his ‘history-making’ were garnering national attention. All this, within less than two years! How cool was that?! Though he’d had considerable coaching by mentors, in May 1990, “Obama” hadn’t had much public practice. And so, that exciting spring day, when his actual personal history was beginning to morph into “The Obama Narrative”, quite unwittingly, “Obama” talked Truth. In an AP interview entitled Harvard Student Tackles Racism At Core, published 3 May 1990, he stated three words he surely has regretted: “At age 2.” Researcher Martha Trowbridge Oh, how the tiniest details offer a gaping view into Truth. For, the context of these three Truth-ful words is: “Obama moved to Southeast Asia at age 2&#8243;. America, the reason these three little words bear so much power may surprise you. It’s not so much about when he went to Indonesia. Their power lies in revealing where in Indonesia young Bâri&#8242; went to live. And who did not live with him. “Barack Obama’s” Indonesian Odyssey did not originate with “Stanley Ann Dunham” taking him, hand-in-hand, at age six, to live with her and her new husband in a modest home in Jakarta – as “The Obama Narrative” wants you to believe. All things considered, from what I can determine, at approximately age two, circa 1961, Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz apparently was sent to live at The Presidential Palace of Indonesian President Sukarno. You see why The Obama Campaign went to such great lengths to &quot;establish&quot; that he and &quot;Stanley Ann&quot; were in Seattle?] President Sukarno – a Malcolm X hero, and long-time good friend. President Sukarno: Revolutionary Extraordinaire. Sukarno, Man Against Oppression. Sukarno, who bravely, brilliantly led the Indonesian overthrow of the ‘oppressive colonial’ Dutch Government. President Sukarno: Indonesia’s first President. Sukarno was amongst the earliest of revolutionary world leaders to whom Malcolm latched on. A man whom Malcolm held in great esteem from the time they met, until Malcolm’s death – and who, in return, held Malcolm in great esteem. “Sukarno, Indonesia’s first president, and Malcolm X shared the platform at Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church in 1956, introduced there by mutual friend Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. The relationship launched there endured until Malcolm X’s untimely death in 1965, two weeks before he was slated to speak at the Asian-African Islamic Conference in Jakarta my emphasis]. He had also planned to attend the tenth anniversary celebration of the 1955 Bandung Conference, the first large-scale Asian-African conference. Iandola explores this little-known relationship to illuminate their ideological affinities as well as the Cold War politics of the Third World.” You may be wondering: how on earth would it come to pass that Sukarno would become involved with raising Jo Ann’s and Malcolm’s son? A fair, reasonable question. Pause a moment, and step inside the head of Malcolm X. You’ll straightaway find the answer. Malcolm X: Always, Always, A Man With A Plan. His conscious reasoning: - Bâri&#8242;, his pride-and-joy son, is blessed with a sacred name, signifying his destiny http://terribletruth.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/bari&#8242;-barry-barack/ - America is a racist, hateful country, an unfit place to raise a black boy - His ‘sole male heir’ should have the best in life - Sukarno will mentor the boy in the ways of political leadership To Malcolm, what would be better, than to have his heir raised, schooled and groomed by a widely acknowledged, well-to-do, revolutionary, socialist President? In a non-racist, Muslim country, to boot?! Sadly, Malcolm likely possessed unacknowledged motivation as well: as he gained his toddler mobility, young Bâri&#8242; would become more and more visible. He’d be playing outdoors. Enrolling in school. etting his voice. Becoming his own person. He’d even be asking his mother questions about his father. Shipping him off to Sukarno would place the boy safely out of sight – protecting Malcolm’s reputation as a married Muslim Minister. A Black Muslim Minister who waged public war against whites. Besides. It was all for the boy’s “own good”. What kind of life would Bâri&#8242; have, growing up in East Elmhurst without a live-in father? With a teenage mother with meager resources? Imagine who he could grow to be, raised by a man like Sukarno! As Indonesia’s first President, Sukarno 1901 - 1970] held powerful international political connections – many of whom Malcolm idolized, publicly praised, visited, and with whom he fraternized. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBiJDMzzWaU&amp;feature=related What great opportunity Sukarno offered little boy Bâri&#8242;! And now, America, I ask you to imagine this boy, set in a foreign country where most did not speak his language. Imagine him, barely verbal, left there amongst strangers. No more mother. No more dazzling Malcolm. No more East Elmhurst, no more bedroom, no more tricycle. No more America. Bâri&#8242;, left there, oodles of thousands of miles away – “for his own good”. From what I have gathered, I sense it was Malcolm’s idea. As we all know, he could be very persuasive. I also sense that, though she was young and single motherhood could not have been easy, Jo Ann was not in total concord with the plan. But loving Malcolm, trusting his judgment, and stirred by his vision for young Bâri&#8242;, she agreed to the surrender of her toddler. Perhaps in retrospect, Jo Ann Newman regretted the decision. She may regret it still. “My Lovely President Sukarno” offers glimpses into his life at home, in Indonesia http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN-zPe3-KN8&amp;feature=related NOW FOR A SURPRISE. Wouldn’t it be fascinating, if, in the video still below, that’s young Bâri&#8242; with mama Jo Ann Newman? With President Sukarno, from his limo, his eyes full of love and pride, blowing kisses at Malcolm’s and Jo Ann’s boy? The boy who clearly had been taught two things: to wave, and to turn his face toward the camera. Bâri&#8242;’s stay at Sukarno’s Presidential Palace didn’t last forever. In fact, his Indonesian stay may have lasted only four years – just as “The Obama Narrative” wants us to believe. On 30 September 1965, Sukarno’s Presidential Guard soldiers executed six ‘trouble-making’ senior army generals, inciting a series of events which eventually led to his overthrow. Life became uncertain for Sukarno. And so, life for young Bâri&#8242; became uncertain too. Keep in mind that his father, Malcolm X, had been assassinated just seven months prior.] Within hours, Army Major General Suharto took command of a substantial part of Sukarno’s power base. Sukarno’s power continued to wane. A year and a half later, on 12 March 1967, Sukarno was stripped of whatever remained of his power by Indonesia’s provisional Parliament, and placed under house arrest. Suharto became President. But back to Bâri&#8242;. To October 1965. Sukarno begins his slip from power. Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz turns six. Hmmm. Could this be why “The Obama Narrative” has “Obama’s” mother arriving in Indonesia, when “Barry” is that age? Coincidence? I don’t think so. For those of you who’ve spent endless hours searching for “Obama’s” early history, including his school records, now you know why your searches have come up empty. It wasn’t your lack of skill. They simply don’t exist. President Sukarno would undoubtedly educate his children by carefully selected tutors. Tutors who would school Bâri&#8242; in diction. Elocution. In international literature and culture. In how to speak ‘The King’s English”. “Obama” Trivia Question: When his grade school teacher asked “Of which country” did he want to be President – in response to his essay declaration – how did “Barry” respond? Answer: “Barry” wasn’t yet sure. Still unconvinced of Sukarno’s influence upon young Bâri&#8242;? Then, for the moment, set aside the fact that Sukarno’s political philosophy merged marxism, nationalism and Islam. I’ll show you his influence – in just two foreign words. Two foreign words you may not be able to pronounce, but whose meaning you surely will recognize. The inarguable imprint of Sukarno upon his precious young charge lies in “gotong royong”. “Gotong royong is cooperation among many people to attain a shared goal.“ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gotong_royong As President, Sukarno had great faith in the philosophy of gotong royong. Gotong royong – many people, shared goal. Now where in America have we heard that idea? Oh. That’s right. In “Barack Obama’s” resounding, celebrated 2008 Presidential Campaign Slogan – “Yes We Can” – a 21st century, simplified, pop version of gotong royong! Here’s more: Sukarno’s governing style was “Guided Democracy”. “Claiming Western-style Democracy was unsuitable for Indonesia, he called for a system of guided democracy. The Indonesian way of deciding important questions, he argued, was by way of prolonged deliberation designed to achieve a consensus. This was the way problems were solved at the village level, and Sukarno argued it should be the model for the entire nation. He proposed a government based not only on political parties but on “functional groups” composed of the nation’s basic elements, which would together form a National Council, through which a national consensus could express itself under presidential guidance.” Hmmmm. Guided democracy…Prolonged deliberation…Functional groups. “A National Council, through which a national consensus could express itself under presidential guidance.” Now, why does this governing style sound so familiar? You got it. It perfectly captures The “Obama” Administration. The “Obama” Rule-By-Czar-ship. In short, The “Obama” Way Of Governing. And how about this? Sukarno worked tirelessly to nationalize companies in Indonesia. “By December 1957, Sukarno began to take concrete steps to enforce his authority over the country. On that month, he nationalised 246 Dutch companies which have been dominating Indonesian economy (most notably the NHM, Royal Dutch Shell subsidiary Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij, Escomptobank, Internatio, Geo Wehry &amp; Co, Jacobson &amp; Berg, etc)” Oh, dear. This, too, Sukarno’s imprint on Bâri&#8242;? If you still think I’m talking coincidence, take a good long look at this: Sukarno cited the need for a CIVILIAN ARMY. “He also stated his support for the establishment of “fifth force” of armed peasants and labor.” Who amongst us has not heard “Obama’s” call for an armed Civilian Army here in America? Before we step away from this tangle of psyches, one other striking similarity. “While Sukarno devoted his energy for domestic and international politics, the economy of Indonesia was neglected and deteriorated rapidly. The government printed money to finance its military expenditures, resulting in hyperinflation exceeding 600% per annum in 1964-1965.” Quotes about Sukarno are sourced at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukarno] Reasonable objections to my thesis, anyone? Oh dear. How far afield we’ve traveled from our topic: Growing Up In A Presidential Palace. Imagine: Power with a capital ‘p’. Fineries! Lavish attentions! Respect. Status. Malcolm would have been in heaven!] To all this, who would say no? I bet that young Bâri&#8242; wished that he could have declined. On that fateful day, circa 1961, was toddler Bâri&#8242; escorted to Indonesia by his father, Malcolm? Did Jo Ann take the trip? Or, was he whisked away by some unknown head of state, or that dignitary’s staff person? I think not. I think young Bâri&#8242; went to Indonesia with President Sukarno himself. Perhaps late in April 1961, at age one and one-half, when Sukarno visted President John F. Kennedy in Washington D.C.: http://www.jfklfoundation.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKWHP-AR6536-A.aspx http://www.jfklfoundation.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKPOF-119-003.aspx Audio file of President Kennedy’s Welcoming Remarks To President Sukarno http://www.jfklfoundation.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKWHA-024-002.aspx Or perhaps Bâri&#8242; was taken to Indonesia in early October 1961, at nearly age two, when Sukarno was in New York City at the United Nations General Assembly. Presidential pomp and circumstance aside, in this man’s saga, does it much matter exactly when he was transplated to The Indonesian Presidential Palace? What matters is its impact: his profound sense of abandonment. His overwhelming pain – today, still unresolved – from the decision made by his parents “for his own good”. How it must have hurt like mad, when little Bâri&#8242; arrived at that Palace. Eyeing the gaggles of Sukarno children, who looked and talked differently. Scanning adult stranger after adult stranger. Acclimating to an odd, wet, hot climate – and odder clothing. To the unfamiliar walls – and bedding – of his sleeping quarters. To the foreign food and foreign rituals. Acclimating to the nurses and nannies and surrogate mother-figures – most of whom who likely spoke no English. Who could not explain for him what he was going through. Who could not console him. His loneliness, though surrounded by crowds. His fear. His pained attempts to bond with his father-substitute, the larger-than-life Sukarno, whose work kept him mostly away from The Palace. The staggering absence of Jo Ann and Malcolm. Toddler Bâri&#8242;, plagued with primitive anxieties, day after endless day, night after sleepless night, knowing – without comprehending why – that his parents gave him away. One last point before we conclude. Re: the baby photo referenced in Terrible Truth’s When The Bough Breaks, here’s the most likely story-behind-the-story: By February 1962, Jo Ann’s baby was gone from New York. Quite naturally, Jo Ann would be missing him. She’d be concerned for his well-being. She’d even be second-guessing her decision to ship him off to the other side of the world, and leave him in the care of strangers. Consider that with that photo, Malcolm used the caption “THE YOUNG LISTENED”. It is my assessment that placement of Bâri&#8242; as an infant in this edition was Malcolm’s way of consoling Jo Ann at the loss of her child. His means of reminding Jo Ann that her child was in a far better place, being provided for in a far loftier way than she, a poor girl from the Bronx, or he, a married Muslim Minister, ever could offer the boy. In an unexpected way, perhaps his father was correct, from this perspective: today, you don’t see “Barack Obama” happier than when he’s with the Indonesian President. Though I suspect that if you could see inside his soul, you’d find geysers of hot sharp pain slapping up against his smile.

Vermont Researcher Claims Barack Hussein Obama's Birth Name Is 'Bari Malik Shabazz' — the Bastard Son of Malcolm X Hmm!! Is This an Excellent Investigation or Great Fictional Writing?? It's a three-year-old rumor, but a Vermont researcher, Martha Trowbridge, claims she has information that Barack Hussein Obama II is actually the illegitimate son of Malcolm X (born Malcolm Little, also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) who was killed in 1965. That's quite a stretch but fascinating — so here goes . . . H.G. Wells, who was a socialist, wrote The Invisible Man, which was published in 1897. In this revealing clip from the 1933 film, the invisible man says: &quot;An invisible man can rule the world, no one will see him come and no one will see him go ...&quot; Here is the film clip starring Claude Rains in The Invisible Man Before 2004, most Americans had never heard of &quot;Barack Obama II.&quot; He materialized, somehow, out of thin air to deliver the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, and then, only three years later, in 2007, was a candidate for President of the United States. &quot;Barack Obama, II,&quot; a man who had no record and no past other than what was published in his book Dreams from My Father, portrayed himself as an African-American JFK., who would be the first post-racial, and most-transparent president America had been waiting and hoping for. The operant word is “portrayed,” for as most Americans have learned since then, Obama has shown himself to be the least transparent and most divisive &quot;president&quot; in American history. More chilling is that since his ascendency to the presidency on January 20th, 2009, he and his rogue administration have done everything in their power to undermine, sabotage, and destroy The United States of America. But the frightening reality that is just now becoming apparent not only to Americans but to people worldwide, is that Obama's rise to the White House is the result of a scrupulously planned and brilliantly executed coup d'état! No one is as duplicitous, as dissembling, or as dangerous as a man whose very existence depends on treachery and deceit. Who is Barack Obama, II? The irrefutably shocking answer is that he is the invisible man! Invisible in terms of his entire background and eligibility for the office of POTUS, and invisible in terms of even one objective record of his existence – here is the short list: • A “vault” (authentic) copy of Obama&#8223;s birth certificate: not released in spite of many lawsuits. • Certificate of Live Birth: released but proven Counterfeit and View Video Showing BC Faked In Adobe Illustrator. • Soetoro adoption records • Punahou School records (in Hawaii) • The Obama-Dunham marriage license • The Soetoro-Dunham marriage license • The Indonesian Soetoro adoption records • Certificate of Citizenship • Selective Service Registration, which has reported to be falsified • Passport from Pakistan • Passport from Indonesia • College records from Occidental College in CA, Columbia University in NY, and Harvard Law School in MA • Harvard Law Review articles: None. • Baptism certificate: None • Medical records • Illinois State Senate records • Illinois State Senate schedule • Law practice client list • University of Chicago Records • University of Chicago scholarly articles • Baptism certificate • University of Chicago scholarly articles WHAT IS “BARACK OBAMA” REALLY HIDING? Millions upon millions of words have been written to try to explain or even justify the appearance on the American scene of a POTUS lacking in credentials, experience, judgment, seriousness, focus, or even a passable “track record,” just as an equal number of words have been expended on trying to fathom how a Chicago-based community organizer with a history of close associations with Marxists, Communists, black-liberation-theology adherents, and mob-based Chicago thugs – some of them since indicted – could possibly have risen to the highest office on earth without once evoking even a hint of curiosity about his background from the now-discredited mainstream media. Among the most investigated and controversial aspects of Obama's background has been his birth certificate, with countless numbers of Constitutional scholars, forensic document experts, experienced lawyers, and highly sophisticated everyday Americans, insisting that all the birth certificates the Obama regime has released – which they claim prove he was born in the United States – have been blatant forgeries. Why does Obama have such a problem producing a simple, authentic birth certificate? Why did he spend close to two million dollars in lawyer's fees to keep his original birth certificate hidden? • Is it because, as his alleged African grandmother has long insisted, Obama was born in Kenya? • Is it because he was born in Indonesia? • Or is Obama simply hiding the truth about who his parents really were? Just weeks ago, a researcher and blogger from Vermont named Martha Trowbridge released a must-read at Martha Trowbridge's Website that has set the entire birth-certificate/eligibility issue on fire. According to Ms. Trowbridge: • Obama is the son of the American-born, black revolutionary Muslim leader Malcolm X and his American-born and white, possibly Jewish, teenage girlfriend from the Bronx, New York, Miss Jo Ann Newman • Obama's actual name is Bari Malik Shabazz • Obama's birthday is not August 4, 1961 but rather October 28, 1959. In other words, he is not 50, as he claims, but 52. And in a poignant and heart-tugging follow-up piece posted on November 26, 2011, Trowbridge informs her readers that contrary to what Americans were told by Obama, Jo Ann Newman, his real mother, is alive and well and has been working all these years for the social causes that she and Malcolm X shared in order to bring about an “an America in which African Americans share generously in all the opportunities and rewards America has to offer.” See for yourself. Martha Trowbridge is a credible, well-respected, and extraordinary researcher, who wouldn't make frivolous claims and should be taken seriously. So far, Ms. Trowbridge's information provides the only scenario that makes any sense! If she is alive, as Martha Trowbridge claims she is, Miss Newman would be now between the ages of 68 and 70 years old, and it appears that at some time in the near future Ms. Trowbridge will make Miss Newman's identity known. OF COURSE, THE ENTIRE TROWBRIDGE &quot;SAGA&quot; MAY BE A FALSE FLAG,” in that it may be yet another diversionary tactic to keep Obama's opponents busy while he and his minions continue their relentless crusade to fulfill Malcolm X's mission, i.e., to destroy capitalism, free markets, the middle class, and the military – all of which they see as impediments to the cradle-to-grave government control to which all good Communists aspire. Just as plausible, however, is the possibility that the ongoing lawsuits and civil actions to keep Obama off the 2012 ballot threaten to derail his reelection campaign. In order to counteract these potentially game-changing obstacles, the Obama camp may be planning to “out” Barack Obama by revealing: 1. That as a son of two American citizens, he is a natural born citizen and fully qualified to hold the office of POTUS 2. That his real father was Malcolm X 3. That his real mother was, and is, Jo Ann Newman, who he will conveniently resurrect from the grave. Particularly significant, though, is that the name “Newman” is generally considered to be a Jewish name, so can we infer that his mother, Jo Ann Newman, was Jewish? If so, that would make Bari Malik Shabazz a Jew according to Jewish law. Could that be why his real mother's existence was covered up with the fabricated and faux Christian, “Stanley Ann Dunham?” THE CREATION OF THE OBAMA MYTH The standard fable of Obama's history is that he was the product of a brief love affair between a teenage Stanley Ann Dunham, who was living with her parents in Hawaii and attending the University of Hawaii, and a Kenyan student in his early twenties, Barack Obama. There are relatively few photos – many, if not all of which have been proven to have been manipulated – from which we are expected to believe the myth that Stanley Ann Dunham was &quot;Obama's&quot; mother, and Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama &quot;Sr.,&quot; was his father. There are no biographies of Obama, except the mostly fictional “autobiographical” account, Dreams from My Father, which author Jack Cashill has proven in articles Did Bill Ayers Write Obama’s “Dreams From My Father”?(Part 1 of 3) and in his book, Deconstructing Obama, was largely written by former domestic terrorist and personal friend of Obama, William Ayers who affirmed he wrote the memoir, and not Barack Obama. So, in short, this fraudulent and concocted history became the “truth.” Many of the claims in Dreams have been, over the past three years, independently proven to be false, and with no corroborating evidence. Consequently, there is no true, verified and seamless history of this man, and no real record of his past until he walked into the White House in January, 2009 -- from which point the efforts to reveal his past have been met with uniform resistance, expensive legal tactics, blanket media blackouts, and unanimous stonewalling from all members of Congress, both Republican and Democrat. Clearly, the American people have witnessed a conspiracy and cover-up of monumental proportions! Most deeply entrenched in this conspiracy are the so-called mainstream media. Whether they were influenced by intimidation, threats, blackmail, or bribery, or if they simply agreed with Obama's leftist vision, the media have both blocked any questions about Obama's identity or purposefully concealed it. CIA director William Colby once said the CIA owns anyone of any significance in the media. The spy agency has certainly have been trying to manipulate the media for the past 70 years or so, at the least. They literally created Operation Mockingbird for that very purpose. The media cover-up is demonstrated quite dramatically when you consider that after almost three years into Obama's &quot;presidency&quot; there are strangely few legitimate biographies about him, his life, and family: In fact, there is almost nothing! Look at the titles on Amazon, in below URL], under Barack Obama, biography. Considering that Obama is &quot;the first African American&quot; president, why are there almost no biographies about him? Yet despite the media's best efforts to cover for Obama – to withhold the compelling connection between him and Malcolm X – it seems that the entire U.S. Congress, the Supreme Court, and lower courts throughout the country, know of this connection. No matter which elected official from the Congress or Senate is questioned about this Invisible Man, the responses are almost identical, not only in their phrasing, but in their blanket “I don't know nothing” attitude. This feigned ignorance can only be speculated about. Do they think race riots would ensue if Obama was outed as the son of the admittedly anti-American Malcolm X? Have they taken political correctness to its most preposterous limits? Or are they all taking part in this grand conspiracy because they know that Barack Obama really was made in the USA? DID MALCOLM X CREATE THE OBAMA CONSPIRACY? Malcolm X believed in the Machiavellian and Marxist &quot;the ends justifies the means&quot; dogma that he translated into his iconic phrase &quot;by any means necessary.&quot; Would he have chosen his son – the only boy; he had six daughters with Betty Shabazz – to achieve the unthinkable, i.e., the overthrow of the United States government and the West] by hiding Bari Shabazz's identity from birth, with the ultimate plan being to spring him on an unwitting United States 50 or so years later? Was this what Malcolm X had in mind when he gave his famous &quot;Ballot or the Bullet” speech, in which he stated: &quot;… when white people are evenly divided, and black people have a bloc of votes of their own, it is left up to them to determine who's going to sit in the White House and who's going to be in the dog house.&quot; Here is the speechIn 1955, Malcolm X was invited by President Sukarno of Indonesia to attend the Bandung Conference in Bandung, Indonesia. Why was he invited? The attendees were members of the non-aligned movement opposed to the U.S. and the Soviet Union and no white people were invited or allowed to attend. In attending, Malcolm X, who was not a U.S. government official, but simply a U.S. citizen, was violating the Logan Act • Did President Sukarno invite Malcolm X in order to advise him on how to orchestrate the overthrow of the United States? • Did he plant in Malcolm X the idea to have an illegitimate son who would work his way through the American political system all the way to the White House – from the inside, incognito, while betraying no connection to his father, the anti-American and anti-white Malcolm X – in order to overthrow the United States government? By 1960, Malcolm X had become internationally recognized as the leader of the Muslim movement in the United States. In December 1960, two months after the September meeting of the U.N. General Assembly, at which time Malcolm X had met Fidel Castro at the Hotel Theresa in Harlem, and likely also http://www.blogger.com/, Malcolm X stated: &quot;The U.S. revolution is starting in Harlem and expresses admiration for Lenin and Stalin; predicts that Africans will be free with the assistance of the Russian army.&quot; here Note: Malcolm X's offices were in the Hotel Theresa and he was instrumental in getting the accommodations for Castro and his entourage at the hotel. In December, 1960, &quot;Bari Malik Shabazz&quot; would have been 14 months old, and Malcolm, by that time, may have already planned out his son's future.] here It is possible that Martha Trowbridge, blogger and extraordinary researcher, has somehow uncovered Barry's real identity, as Malcolm X's only son, Bari Malik Shabazz, who she claims was born on October 28th, 1959, and not August 4th, 1961. Although Betty and Malcolm could have been Bari's real parents, it is unlikely, and it is more probable, from the evidence that Ms. Trowbridge has recently produced, that the biological mother was actually Miss Jo Ann Newman, a young white woman from the Bronx, New York, and not the alleged mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who Martha Trowbridge has emphatically claimed never really existed! Malcolm, therefore, certainly had the means, opportunity, and motive to achieve his dreams through his own &quot;invisible&quot; man – his son Bari Malik Shabazz. Consider this possibility: Another Cold Case File, Closed: “Malcolm X’s Missing Eyeglasses” Look here to see the broken eyeglasses that Obama was photographed wearing while sleeping, which are possibly the same broken glasses retrieved at the scene of Malcolm X's assassination by either Betty Shabazz or Malcolm's Bronx girlfriend, Jo Ann Newman: At the time of Malcolm X's assassination in February 1965, Stanley Ann Dunham would have been about 23 years old. Given that there seems to be no evidence that Stanley Ann Dunham ever met Malcolm X and that it was highly unlikely that she was even in New York City, Malcolm's glasses couldn't have come from Stanley Ann. However, Betty Shabazz could have given them to Obama, or, as Martha Trowbridge maintains, his real mother, Jo Ann Newman, was the one who gave them to her son. Jo Ann, who lived nearby in the Bronx, was mentioned as being present in the first row of the audience when Malcolm was assassinated. Or, was Stanley Ann Dunham really Jo Ann Newman, who was later given another identity and family history? If this account is true, then it connects Malcolm X, a New Yorker, with Obama's real mother, Jo Ann Newman, also a New Yorker, a connection, which has up until now been a missing piece of the puzzle. Also, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one! In a relatively new book by the late Manning Marable, Manning Marable's 'Reinvention' Of Malcolm X : NPR, the author provides information that suggests that Malcolm's relationship to Betty was tenuous. Was the motivating reason for Malcolm to marry in order to have babies, and specifically a son to fulfill his political dreams? In January 1958, Malcolm married Betty Sanders after meeting her in 1955. According to Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X: The couple had six daughters. Their names were Attallah, born in 1958 and named after Attila the Hun; 75] 76] Qubilah, born in 1960 and named after Kublai Khan; 77] Ilyasah, born in 1962 and named after Elijah Muhammad; 78] Gamilah Lumumba, born in 1964 and named after the assassinated Prime Minister of Congo, Patrice Lumumba; 79] and twins, Malikah and Malaak, born in 1965 after their father's assassination and named for him. 80] Barack Hussein Obama bears a striking resemblance to the first three of their six daughters, and was given a name that is consistent with those given to Malcolm's other six children. So could &quot;Bari Malik Shabazz&quot; have been born in 1959 to Malcolm and Betty? If the conception and birth dates are analyzed, Betty could have given birth to Bari Malik Shabazz in between the births of Attallah and Qubilah. Martha Trowbridge's article places Bari Malik Shabazz, who she claims was born on October 28th, 1959, at an address in Elmhurst, Queens, which was very close to the house that Malcolm X lived in. Could it be that their baby, Bari, was sequestered and concealed and his parentage hidden in order to achieve Malcolm's political goals? Was Bari's birth an accident or planned? Was he Betty's and Malcolm's own son, who they then hid away? Would Malcolm really have had his illegitimate son living one block away from Betty and his home? Or was he Stanley Ann Dunham's or Jo Ann Newman's son? Where was Bari for the first few years of his life? Up until now, we had no clue! But now we see that he could have been living in Elmhurst, Queens, near his father! Was Bari, then, after Malcolm X was assassinated, sent to live in Hawaii? This would explain the fact that he was first photographed in Hawaii at about 5 years old, and would confirm a 1959 birth, and presence in Hawaii in 1965. THE ULTIMATE GOAL: COMMUNIST INFILTRATION AND TAKEOVER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA From 1955 to 1964, Malcolm X associated with communist world leaders including President Sukarno of Indonesia, Cuba's Fidel Castro, likely] Russia's Nikita Kruschev, and many others who he would have met at the Bandung Conference in 1955. The FBI files, in the public domain, confirm that the FBI was investigating Malcolm X to verify Communist influence and also Malcolm X's violation of the Logan Act: Part 24. Malcolm X's trip to Egypt, in 1964, was paid for by the Egyptian government. Is it likely that his trip to the Bandung Conference, which he made with Adam Clayton Powell in 1955, was paid for by Sukarno? What was he up to? Could he have been conspiring to overthrow the U.S. government? Is Obama now fulfilling the dreams of his father, Malcolm X? ... CLICK FOR MUCH MORE!! Is Putative President Barack Hussein Obama II Really Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz, Fugitive from Justice For 21 Years Following An Auto Accident in Honolulu County, Hawaii on March 12, 1982? By Mario Apuzzo, Esq. - On November 2, 2011, I published an article entitled and asking the question, “Is Barack Hussein Obama II Really Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz, Born October 28, 1959 in New York City? ”, accessed at here. The basis of the question that I asked came from a November 2, 2011 breaking story published by Martha Trowbridge entitled, “Bâri&#8242;, Barry, Barack, accessed at here. In her article, Ms. Trowbridge’s contends that putative President Barack Hussein Obama II’s real name is Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz and that his date of birth is October 28, 1959, and his social security number is 084-54-5926. She says he was born in New York City. She adds that he was born with the name Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz. She also says that to be able to enter the political world, Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz had to change his birth identity and take on a new one which became Barack Hussein Obama II. Ms. Trowbridge says: “We know this: Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz was assigned social security number 084-54-5926, issued in New York, in 1974.” Ms. Trowbridge has found that the Social Security Death Index shows: “SHABAZZ, B M 28 Oct 1959 Aug 1994 (V) 34 (PE) (none specified) New York 084-54-5926.” From this, one would think that Bâri&#8242; died in August 1994. But no, Ms. Trowbridge informs that only his identity was made “dead.” The real person continued to live and that person became “Barack Hussein Obama II.” Note how she explains that the “death” of Bâri&#8242; was only reported by someone (“V” or “Verified”) and that the person did not present any valid death certificate (“P” or “Proof). What’s more Ms. Trowbridge explains that “ o]nce in the federal system, the death] record was flagged as ‘PE’, meaning that an inconsistency exists between what was reported and what was recorded in the government’s files.” Finally, and the most shocking part of her report is that Ms. Trowbridge contends that Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz is the biological son of Malcolm X. Hence, if Barack Hussein Obama II is the same person as Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz, that would make putative President Obama the biological son of Malcolm X. On November 4, 2011, an anonymous source emailed me something very interesting. To substantiate the content of the email, the writer directed me to go to a web site of the Judiciary for the State of Hawaii and to do a search of cases that have been disposed of by that State’s traffic courts. The anonymous source had done just that and so the person provided me with the information which that traffic court shows on its web site. I did go to the Hawaii traffic court’s web site which is called eCourt Kokua and I was eventually able to confirm the information that the anonymous source sent me. Access to the court’s web set may be gained by going to http://jimspss1.courts.state.hi.us:8080/eCourt/ECC/ECCDisclaimer.iface;jsessionid=FDFF513AA90109AC4375A7CBE7C8AF36. Once at the site, click “Agree” to the terms and conditions. Then click, “Search for case details by case ID or citation number.” Once there, enter at the prompt, Case ID or Citation Number(*): 1193041MO and hit Search.” The following report appears: (Click each image to enlarge) IMAGE 1 — IMAGE 2 — IMAGE 3 — IMAGE 4 What do these reports say and what questions does they raise? The Case ID is 1193041 MO. The name of the case is State v. Bari Shabazz which was a non-jury case. The case is characterized as a “Traffic Crime,” with a “REPORT number W50100.” The offense occurred on March 12, 1982. The charging police officer is Duane Masayuki Espinueva. The event is characterized as an “Accident Major.” The charge was driving without a valid driver’s license. The case was first filed on Tuesday, March 16, 1982, in the First Circuit, located at Kane’Ohe Division. I checked and this court is located at 45-939 Pookela Street, Kaneohe, HI 96744. The case was continued to April 5, 1982. The record also shows that Bari Shabazz was supposed to be arraigned and enter a plea on April 5, 1982, at 8:30 a.m., in Kane’ohe Traffic Court, Courtroom B, at the Kane’ohe Division. The case was continued to May 5, 1982. On May 5, 1982, at 8:00 a.m., Bari Shabazz was supposed to again be arraigned and enter his plea in the same court room. He apparently did not appear and so the court issued a bench warrant on May 5, 1982, bearing number “BWO 050582.” It appears as though the court set bail at $25.00. The record also shows the entry of “HONDA,” maybe meaning that Bari Shabazz was driving a Honda or that the prosecutor’s name was “HONDA.” The next entry is for May 5, 1982, at 8:30 a.m. The court ordered the “AP” (maybe meaning accused person) to show proof of “NEW YORK DRIVER’S LICENSE.” The report then shows that the prosecutor on April 9, 2003, filed an ex parte motion to recall the bench warrant and announced on the record “nolle prosequi.” This is a Latin phrase which is formally entered into a court record which means that the prosecutor in a criminal case “will no further prosecute” the case. The motion was listed as “NP nolle prosequi] 040903.” So, the charge was dismissed upon the prosecutor’s ex parte “Nolle Prosequi” motion made on April 9, 2003. “Ex parte” means that only one side made the application which in this case was the prosecutor. The final entry was for October 30, 2005, at 8:00 a.m., when the court noted that a $-0- balance was owed, but said “Pls check.” This information raises the following questions: (1) Is the Bari Shabazz named in this traffic court report the same person Ms. Trowbridge calls “Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz” in her report and who is listed as “B M Shabazz” in the Social Security Death Index? If it is the same person, then that puts New Yorker Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz in Honolulu County, Hawaii, on March 12, 1982. Using a date of birth of October 28, 1959, this would have made Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz 22 years old at the time that he had this major automobile accident in Honolulu County. (2) The accident is characterized as a major accident. Chances are that Bari Shabazz and/or any passenger was taken to a local hospital in Honolulu County due to his/their injuries. Wait a Minute!!

OBAMA'S SCAR — What caused that nasty scar covering the sides and back of Obama's head? — Brain Tumor, Injury, Deformity, CD Slot, or did he just misplace his hand in a biker bar. Could his mental deficiencies be blamed on a botched cranioplasty?? And what's with the neck scar! OMA! DO THESE PICS SHOW OBAMA’S HAD BRAIN SURGERY? The Blaze — There are the birthers who question Obama’s nationality. And now there are…the brainers? It seems the latest theory surrounding Barack Obama is the presence of what appears to be scars on his head. Scars that, if true, haven‘t been explained and some say show he’s had brain surgery. The website Escapetyranny.com is asking the question, &quot;What’s that huge long scar on Obama’s head? And is that why we can’t see his birth certificate?&quot; Author Ben Hart writes: Barack Obama has a very long scar that goes up the side of his head and over his crown. What is that? What happened? No one in the media asks. We can’t see his medical records, his school records, his college records, or his birth certificate. He’s almost done with his first term, and we still know almost nothing about the background of the President of the United States. Very strange. Whatever happened to create that scar, it was clearly something serious. Was it a brain operation? Has it affected his thinking? Is he really an alien from another planet, which would explain no birth certificate? We have no proof as to where he was born, to whom, where he came from, or what is national origin is. Maybe he’s one of the androids (a replicant), like in Bladerunner, not really human at all. Anything’s possible. Hart calls for answers to put the controversy to rest. According to the Mail, the White House has offered an answer of sorts, dismissing the suggestion as &quot;ridiculous:&quot; A spokeswoman from the White House said they were not willing to comment on such claims, saying they were ‘ridiculous’. Countless neurosurgeons said it is ‘not their place’ to comment on whether or not distinctive scars on the President’s head are as a result of brain surgery. Others offered explanations such as a bad haircut or even a birthmark though many did agree that the scars are similar to those a produced after major brain surgery. The other question now is: Will Donald Trump take up this cause? (UK's Daily Mail) (FreeRepublic Comments) (Cranioplasty Procedure) (Surgical Repair of Scalp Avulsion Injury) If Bari Shabazz suffered any major injuries or laceration, the physical signs of those injuries and/or lacerations could still be present somewhere on his body if he is still alive. (3) Bari Shabazz was charged with driving without a driver’s license. The court ordered him to show proof of his New York driver’s license. Hence, Bari Shabazz must have told the charging police officer or the court that he did have a driver’s license and that it was one issued by the State of New York. Hence, Bari Shabazz must have been a resident of the State of New York. Note that Ms. Trowbridge said that Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz was born in New York City. Also, what was Bari Shabazz doing driving in Hawaii with what should have been a New York driver’s license? Was he now living in Hawaii? Was he there on vacation? Was he there visiting family or friends? Was he going to school there? (4) On April 9, 2003, the prosecutor filed a motion to recall the bench warrant, to terminate prosecution, and close the case. Why would this case come to the attention of some local prosecutor 21 years following the initial violation of March 12, 1982? A local prosecutor does not just go looking for cases that are 21 years old and file motions to dismiss those cases. Someone must have asked that local prosecutor to dismiss the case so that the arrest warrant was cleared from the court’s and nation’s computer system. (5) Ms. Trowbridge shows that Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz, according to the Social Security Death Index, died in August 1994. If Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz is the same person as is listed in this Hawaii auto accident as Bari Shabazz, why would someone care to recall his arrest warrant on April 9, 2003 or almost 9 years after his death? Surely, it could not be Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz who was interested since he had been dead since 1994. On the other hand, if he was not dead he would be interested. (6) On October 30, 2005, or 23 years following the date of the accident of March 12, 1982, the court again re-visits the case of Bari Shabazz, noting that he did not owe the court any money but to “Pls. check.” Why would the court again concern itself with this case on that date, especially if Bari Shabazz was dead since 1994? (7) So, is the Bari Shabazz named in this Hawaii traffic court report the same person Ms. Trowbridge calls “Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz” in her report and who is listed as “B M Shabazz” in the Social Security Death Index? That question surely merits an investigation. If he is, then that puts the New-York-born Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz in Honolulu County, Hawaii, the alleged birth place and once place of residence of putative President, Barack Hussein Obama II. Given what Ms. Trowbridge has concluded in her report, that is a circumstantial piece of evidence that is surely worth investigating. What also supports Ms. Trowbridge’s position that Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz really did not die in August 1994 and that he is still alive as Barack Hussein Obama II is that the traffic court in Hawaii was still acting on the Bari Shabazz traffic case 9 and 11 years after the alleged death in August 1994 of Bâri&#8242; M. Shabazz. What needs to be investigated is why the local prosecutor and court took those actions so many years after the traffic accident and at whose behest. (8) Finally, when there is an auto accident, the police do a detailed accident report. That report includes the name, addresses, date of birth, and social security number of the person involved in the accident who is charged for that accident. The driver’s license number is also included if that license is produced or otherwise verified. A physical description of the defendant is also included. The make of auto, including the year made and VIN number are also included, along with statements of witnesses. There could be a photograph of the defendant in the police record. A thorough investigation of this matter would surely include searching the police record in Honolulu County for this report so that this information may be examined and evaluated. Mario Apuzzo, Esq. — November 7, 2011 — http://puzo1.blogspot.com UPDATE: More Musings or Baloney or from Martha Trowbridge?? Obama's Momma Jo Ann Newman: Far From Dead, Far From Gone By Martha Trowbridge - Last week, I saw an image that made me very sad. It was the Visitors Book at Canberra, The Australian War Memorial. The page’s dedication was inscribed: The Honorable Barack Obama President Of The United States Of America As I studied his face in photos of the event, I wondered whether, as President “Barack Obama” inscribed it on 17 November 2011, he had the same thought I did: Some day soon this page will be torn from the book, and burned in disgrace. He knows as well as we do: there is no honor in deceit. Like presenting a synthetic mother, and synthetic photos of that mother – in slavitude – yes, slavitude – to his desperate determination to win The United States Presidency. Like feeding fake after fake story to America’s media, counting on their good-hearted nature to print whatever he hands them. Like despicably claiming his mother is dead – to keep her far from prying eyes. For, America, the Truth is: the Mother of “Barack Obama’ is far from dead, far from obese, and far from ‘folksy’. She’s been far from Indonesia, too. All these years, The Mother of America’s “President” has been here, in America, working hard to support her treasured social causes. She’s honored and respected. She’s lovely, industrious, competent, and oh so committed to carrying on her lifelong shared vision with her beloved, Malcolm X: an America in which African Americans share generously in all the opportunities and rewards America has to offer. Because I’m praying that her son will step forth and do the right thing, I am – for the moment – withholding her current identifying information. The last thing I want to do is invade her life. She’s been through too much already. Think about it. She’s been shut out, silenced, ‘killed off’. She’s been represented by unflattering images. Her actual, lovely image has been distorted to grotesque. She’s been lied about, used, and bandied to suit The Obama Campaign purposes. She’s even been obscured from posterity, in video and stills, when on that horrific February day at the Audubon Ballroom, she kneeled, and lay over Malcolm, as he lay dying. All this, for her treasured son. The son she shared with her beloved, Malcolm X. The son upon whose tiny body they pinned their dreams for a fairer America. As I contemplate this exceptional woman’s life, I wonder how many of those around her share her secret. I wonder what they must think about all that she’s had to sacrifice, all these years, living incognito - in order that her mule headed son advance his career, his way. Jo Ann Newman, living, clearly living, for years and years, though her son has pronounced her dead. How hard it must have been for her – cause or no cause – to sacrifice personal recognition – for decades. For most of her adult life, really. Jo Ann Newman, in these demanding decades of women’s lib, ever-living through the lives of those she loved, placing her own life behind theirs. For, since they met in the 1950&#8242;s, for the sake of Malcolm’s reputation, Jo Ann sacrificed public recognition of her role as his lover and mother of his child. And since the early 1990&#8242;s, because “Barack Obama” deemed her a huge political liability, Jo Ann has been unable to publicly associate with her and Malcolm’s son. It takes strength of character to make such great sacrifices. Yet, isn’t that “true love”? The kind of love that puts the needs of your beloved ahead of your own? Have you ever thought about this, Barack? That despite what you may feel, your mother truly loves you? Barack: I entreat you, step into The Light. Thousands of us will greet you in sincere, prayerful support of your decision to do the right thing. We’ll applaud your step into Integrity in a way you’ve never before been applauded. I promise you, Barack: the applause will be your sweetest ever – for it will be applause you earn honestly. We know it won’t be easy. We also know it will be hugely relieving. New, powerful, enduring pages could be inscribed in history: The Honorable Barack Obama The First World Leader To Make Things Right As for you, dear Unsung Heroine Jo Ann Newman: please, reach out to your son. Just like you did with Malcolm, be strong for him. Guide him to the freeing power of Truth. Now, more than ever, your son needs you. Published: November 25, 2011 Filed Under: Bari M.

I would say he feels nothing but shame in his parentage, just as his mother must feel shame for him, if she were still alive. You are correct about one thing; there is no value in his signature. Time says: Perhaps Martha Trowbridge is Jo Ann Newman who is Obambie’s mama and the direct link to Mr Obama.. Possible that she is the dead mother, the author ? Maybe Martha is telling her son to come clean, tell the truth and it will set him free.. Martha writes in defense of Jo Ann and explains how she is a good woman.. How would she know this ? Only if she is her.. Seems she wants to sway the people that read her blog and the one person she is trying to get to read her words, the son of Jo Ann and Mr X… Hmm, I find many reasons behind this blog other then pushing Ole Barry to come out and tell the world that he is NOT who he says he is..There is more to this author then what she writes.. Just saying… PaulP says: Just talked to a long-time journalist friend who was very close to all this at the time it happened. I knew his involvement, referred him to these articles and asked for his comments. His reply: Some of the facts and conclusions are a little off, but there’s a lot more than just a grain of truth in this story and someone needs to follow up. I tried to question him, but he wouldn’t go any further. It’s time to get another investigator involved to verify this. Neil Sankey? Donna says: I don’t buy it either because i remember Ann Dunhams interviews from 1958-1961. She looked like the picture featured in “whose your daddy,whose your mama”.on this site. lizMN says: This story of Jo Ann Newman cannot be taken seriously without any proof being provided. It is written like an urban legend. California Constitutionalist says: Yeah, I don’t Barry/Barack/Bari stepping into the Light either, so might as well out his real mother and be done with this guy. OPOVV says: Gee whiz, don’t you know that Islam permits lying in any form what-so-ever to promote Islam? Matter of fact, the Quran says that it’s perfectly acceptable to deceive your enemies, as long as “you hold Alah close to your heart”. The Muslims take lying and deceiving their enemies so seriously they even have a word for it: taqiyya. So the sentence “He knows as well as we do:there is no honor in deceit.” Ah ha, not if you’re a Muslim. BobSR says: Seems like a total fantasy to me………even the writing style. How about saving America by revealing the identity of Barry’s alive and well Mom? Can we have some concise and tangible proof of something, instead of what seems like a made-up fairy tale? I’m sure Barry will read this and fess right up….NOT!! UPDATE: Malcolm X Is Not Baby Obama's Daddy with Stanley Ann Dunham (because Jo Ann Newman may be Obama's biological momma) By Jack Cashill - Lately, about once or twice a day, I receive an email from a well-meaning correspondent asking whether the late black nationalist Malcolm X was, in fact, the natural father of President Barack Obama. The question is not as outlandish as it sounds: The falsification of Obama's official bio makes speculation on his origins almost inevitable. The Malcolm-as-father proponent usually begins with photos of Malcolm and Obama. (Yes, they do look vaguely alike.) He then builds a case by adding any random detail that might support his thesis and ignoring those that don't. The latter category includes just about everything known about Malcolm X's character and history. In 1960 Malcolm X was the least likely black man in America to have impregnated Ann Dunham, Obama's mom, then a mousy white adolescent in Washington state or Hawaii or wherever. Beyond the logistical problems – Ann, are you sure America's most prominent black nationalist will feel comfortable at your lily white prom? – Malcolm was bound by several restraints, both philosophical and personal. For one, while a member of the Nation of Islam (NOI), the married Malcolm opposed adultery. He did so with such conviction that it would ultimately cost him his life. In 1962, the year after Obama's birth, Malcolm learned that two of the former secretaries of Elijah Muhammad, his spiritual leader in the NOI, had sued the old geezer for child support. Malcolm was nothing if not faithful. From the time he entered prison until the time he married 12 years later he claimed he did not touch a woman &quot;because of Mr. Muhammad's influence upon me.&quot; He presumed the same principled restraint from other Muslims, Muhammad especially. At first, he refused to believe that Elijah Muhammad, the man who made the rules, would &quot;betray the reverence bestowed upon him&quot; by so many trusting black Muslims. As the rumors grew stronger, Malcolm investigated, confirmed the stories and finally confronted Elijah with the facts. In so doing, Malcolm all but signed his death warrant. &quot;Hating me,&quot; he said prophetically, &quot;was going to become the cause for people of shattered faith to rally around.&quot; In the last year or two of his life, Malcolm wised up to the mess he had made of his early years. &quot;I was a zombie then – like all Muslims,&quot; he said, &quot;I was hypnotized, pointed in a certain direction and told to march.&quot; Unfortunately, before his change of heart, Malcolm had won over one significant would-be zombie, the boxer now known as Muhammad Ali. Forced to choose between Elijah and Malcolm, Ali chose Elijah, although Malcolm had been in his corner, almost literally, from the beginning, &quot;Worse than death was betrayal,&quot; Malcolm would lament. And no betrayal cut as deeply as Ali's. It &quot;hurt Malcolm more than any other person turning away that I know of,&quot; said Malcolm's widow, Betty Shabazz. Ali was the one person who might have saved Malcolm fro Elijah's fatwa. As the death threats morphed into murder plots, Shabazz begged his intercession. &quot;You see what you're doing to my husband, don't you,&quot; she pleaded after a chance encounter with Ali. Ali blew her off, disingenuously raising his hands in the air and saying, &quot;I'm not doing anything to him.&quot; Soon thereafter, an NOI hit squad assassinated Malcolm in full view of his wife and children at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem. &quot;Ali threw Malcolm away like a pork chop,&quot; says Sunni Khalid, one of the few journalists to see through the myth. &quot;Even today those who really know can never forgive him.&quot; A second fact that argues against paternity is that Malcolm, like Ali, like all NOI members, was proudly racist. &quot;I'm Jack Johnson,&quot; Ali once said comparing himself to the equally promiscuous heavyweight champion. &quot;Without the white women.&quot; When asked in a 1975 Playboy interview if he believed that lynching was the answer to interracial sex, Ali answered, &quot;A black man should be killed if he's messing with a white woman.&quot; This charming sentiment Ali voiced years into his unexamined reign as liberal sports icon. The left chose not to notice. There is a third consideration. As is now well-documented, Malcolm X appears to have had little use for women. In his definitive Malcolm biography, &quot;Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,&quot; black scholar Manning Marable, confirmed the rumors. Before joining the NOI, Malcolm did have an &quot;early homosexual relationship with a white businessman&quot; and may have had other such relationships afterwards. That much said, Malcolm did marry and father six children, but the Marable bio also contended that his relationship with Betty was less than exciting. Marable included a letter Malcolm wrote to Elijah in 1959 on this very topic, &quot;(Betty) told me that we were incompatible sexually because I had never given her any real satisfaction.&quot; For these reasons and more, in my book &quot;Deconstructing Obama,&quot; I make the case against Malcolm X's paternity. I add that for those who insist on a celebrity father for Obama, rocker Jimi Hendrix is a much better candidate. I point out that Hendrix was two days older than Ann, also went to high school in Seattle, dated white girls, and like Ann's son, was left-handed. Then, too, Obama has mentioned Hendrix on several occasions. Lest anyone think me overly serious, I described my motives as mischievous and my analysis as pure &quot;Paul-is-dead.&quot; To further discourage the dunderheads, I added, &quot;I can envision the mirthless Huffington headline now. 'Whack job from Web's farthest lunatic orbit says Hendrix Obama's father.'&quot; I underestimated the utter indifference to the truth of the heavily subsidized left-wing media. Here is what Simon Maloy of Media Matters actually did write: &quot;Cashill's candidates for Obama's 'real' father include Malcolm X and Jimi Hendrix.&quot; No, Malcolm was not Obama's father. But if you want a fact to taunt your left-wing friends with, try this one: Ali attended the 1984 Republican convention as a Reagan supporter. Who knew? Rumors Surface: Classy First Lady Michelle Obama Is Way Too 'Hot' NOT to Have a Secret Lover She's a stunning beauty that attracts every virile man; and apparently even a bi-guy like Barack, but it’s a good thing her last name is not Cain or this story would be making major headlines by now. The Globe Magazine just released a bombshell and is reporting that Michelle Obama is having a “steamy secret affair” with a Secret Service Agent. According to The Globe, rumors started to circulate that Obama may be having an affair after her recent admission to NBC’s Al Roker that she frequently “sneaks out” of the White House; and the ever increasing time she is spending away from the White House may be a cover to hide “a sizzling affair she’s carrying on with a Secret Service agent.” According to The Globe’s anonymous source: “The rumors are that she’s getting it on with a Secret Service agent who is not part of her detail. … Her frequent outings away from the White House give her and him an opportunity to get together.” The source adds: “Something has been going on for a couple of months and there’s no question Barack is embarrassed about her increasingly frequent excursions away from him at the White House.” The allegations are, of course, unsubstantiated and only time will tell if the allegations will fizzle or blow up into a major issuing in the upcoming presidential campaign. Typically, the media will not report unsubstantiated claims from anonymous sources, but the recent media feeding frenzy over unsubstantiated allegation against businessman Herman Cain, which literally sank his candidacy, leave the question open: will the media pursue, or even bother to investigate this story? When it comes to the Mainstream Media, anything goes. That much is clear. But will the media apply the same standard to Obama as to Cain? Only time will tell. The High Price of Impatience: Barack's 'Beard' Jets Off to Hawaii Alone? for 17-Day Vacation Luxury: Michelle and the kids will travel by Air Force One, which costs $180,000 per hour - or around $1,000,000 for a return trip from Washington to Hawaii With thousands of families struggling to raise funds for Christmas, you would think the Obamas might manage a little thriftiness. But today, Michelle Obama and her two daughters fly to Hawaii for a 17-day holiday - days before the president joins them. The separate flights will incur costs of more than $100,000 to the taxpayer. Obama has vowed to stay in Washington until Congress passes an extension of the payroll tax cut and will join his family before Christmas. By not waiting for Congress to reach a decision before jetting off together, the family is inflicting eye-watering costs on the taxpayer. When Michelle flew to Hawaii alone last year, it cost a staggering $63,000 - without security or staff costs - according to White House Dossier website. Michelle, 13-year-old Malia and 10-year-old Sasha will leave Washington Friday after giving toys to the Marines Corps’ Toys for Tots programme. Barack Obama previously said to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: 'Michelle and the girls are going to have a great time in Hawaii. They don't need me there.' The president's family covers the cost of a private beach front residence in Kailua, Oahu, for the vacation - a ‘Winter White House’ that costs up to $3,500 a day, or $75,000 a month. But the local and federal taxpayers help pay the bill for travel and security. Last year the trip cost more than $1 million, according to the Hawaii Reporter. The move also puts the president at odds with one of his own executive orders that instructed agencies to avoid unnecessary flights, said the site. Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have criticised Mr Obama's holiday plans, which were originally scheduled to begin on December 17 for 17 days. 'I just think it's time to have a president whose idea of being 'hands on' doesn't mean getting a better grip on the golf club,' Mr Romney told voters in Iowa. Last year's holiday was similarly delayed, but the Obamas added a few extra days to the end to make up for the inconvenience. The president, who was raised in Hawaii until he was six, previously announced there were no public events scheduled for the trip. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin said the president didn't want lawmakers to leave town without reaching an agreement on the extension. 'What the president made clear was that the House would leave at its peril, its political peril, and they will face the embarrassment of trying to explain why they're taking the holiday off while working families across America are going to see their taxes increase,' he said, according to Politico. President Obama told lawmakers this week they could not leave for family trips until decisions have been reached. The 'Occupy Movement' Explained!WHAT IS THE CLOWARD-PIVEN THE VISION THAT FUELS OBAMA'S SICKO SYCOPHANTS: The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward (1926–2001) and Frances Fox Piven (b.1932) that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of &quot;a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty&quot;. The Cloward Piven Strategy According To Glenn Beck: Glenn Beck tells us, how the Cloward Piven Strategy is really all about collapsing the system as we know it and rebooting (or transforming) it as a socialist utopia. How does the Cloward Piven Strategy fit into the concepts of &quot;Social Justice&quot; and &quot;Economic Justice?&quot; Is the Cloward Piven Strategy nothing more than another tool of the Progressive Left? Does the implementation of the Cloward Piven Strategy tie into the Federal Reserve, the progressive income tax and the United Nations? How does the Cloward
