  1. Bob Beckel, The Five, a democratic operative, stated last night that he dated Bernadine Dohrn! She was a “nice” lady. What? A “nice” terrorist?

    He was asked if he was part of the Weathermen, and he said he went a different direction. I wonder what direction that was..since he was a druggie, too. If I were him, I wouldn’t be saying I was part of the Weathermen either. I wonder what name he used and if there is a “file” on him for his activities.

    Lets us know more about the guy that has a prime spot on FOX.

    • Are you kidding me? May I do a Joe Wilson and say, “you lie?” (Meaning Beckel lies. I don’t believe he dated her.)

      WTH is this? Normalizing dating domestic terrorists? She was a nice lady? I don’t call anyone who tries to blow people up a “lady” or a “gentleman”. Is it just a matter of time until we find out they had a threesome or something?

      • maybe even a foursome. :lol:

        • Yeah. The Weatherman were all into that stuff. And trading women like possessions. That’s what really gets me about these “feminists” who weren’t. They allowed themselves to be used like so many women who fell for that sexist “free love” crap. Not so unlike the Muslims, when you think about it. Maybe that’s why there’s such an affinity. Their leaders were so much like Manson. Speaking of Manson: “Dig it,” Beckel. Look up what that “nice lady” said about Sharon Tate and when Manson’s killing machine stuck a fork in her. Nice lady. Right.

    • Bob Beckal exits as a public figure without an age, place of birth, hometown. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Beckel

      So I looked up his brother. He’s was born in Old Lyme CT in 1949
      He’s got an full plate of filmology.

      then when you look up (wiki) Old Lyme CT, neither he nor his brother appear as prominent folk.

      Bob Beckel’s resume is pretty interesting.

      Excellent Post! As always!

      • Gosh, I can’t imagine why the media is quiet about this! No wonder the Secret Service Scandals meant nothing to him…since he participates in their services. Does FOX know… they will if you send them a note! Can’t they find decent libs to be on their programs? Do unto them as they do to us? Slime.

        DemoRat Bob Beckel Caught up in Sex Scandal
        April 17th, 2012 Snip

        A former host of CNN’s “Crossfire Sunday” and regular contributor to CBS “This Morning” and a member of Fox’s Five at 5:00pm paid a Fairfax County woman to perform sex acts on him at his Maryland home and was then threatened that the incident would be made public unless he paid $50,000, according to Virginia court records.

        Bob Beckel, a political analyst who managed Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign, paid a woman $300 per hour to visit his home on June 27 and 29.
        ~
        Beckel, known in political circles as a liberal pundit, made headlines after the 2000 presidential election, when Republicans said he tried to persuade some members of the electoral college to vote for Democrats.

  2. Anyone know what it means that they sealed her motion? I wonder if Social Security changed their rules like the Selective Service did, and they can now dispose of non essential records.

  3. Taliban Fighters released by Obama if they “Promise” to Give Up Violence! How many of our soldiers will die or have died when these promises aren’t kept? Will Obama say they were crossing their fingers when they made that promise? Let’s see what else can Obama do to “help” the enemy?

    Secret U.S. program releases high-level insurgents in exchange for pledges of peace
    May 8, 2012 Snips

    The United States has for several years [since when exactly?] been secretly releasing high-level detainees from a military prison in Afghanistan as part of negotiations with insurgent groups, a bold effort to quell violence but one that U.S. officials acknowledge poses substantial risks. [No kidding!]

    As the United States has unsuccessfully pursued a peace deal with the Taliban, the “strategic release” program has quietly served as a live diplomatic channel, allowing American officials to use prisoners as bargaining chips in restive provinces where military power has reached its limits.

    But the releases are an inherent gamble: The freed detainees are often notorious fighters who would not be released under the traditional legal system for military prisoners in Afghanistan. They must promise to give up violence — and U.S. officials warn them that if they are caught attacking American troops, they will be detained once again. [They are shaking in their sandals!]

    There are no absolute guarantees, however, and officials would not say whether those who have been released under the program have later returned to attack U.S. and Afghan forces once again. [Refresh our memory - jihad means what?]

  6. Sarkozy’s replacement, the French Socialist, is already at the WH visiting with his comrade today? Two peas in a pod? Then they will attend the UN meeting together. Sarkozy, who saw through the conman in the WH, wasn’t reelected. One of the talk shows said that his wife might leave him – no reason given.

  7. This article is like reading the devil’s playbook… It is a repost from an article that I posted earlier in the day but which seemed to get lost in the day’s hullabaloo.

    • That’s a great summary of the plan to steal the election. As I read through it, I realize that they’ve been doing this already for a long time. One has to wonder if Obama really WON in 2008? I think not. He stole that election, too, as they plan to steal this one. That’s why he was so supremely confident. A crucial part of their plan is to keep the poll numbers close. It’s the ONLY way they can pass off the results as legitimate. But they have that covered, too, because they simply get pollsters who skew results or deliberately choose a poor sample in order to keep that “neck and neck” meme going. We should all volunteer for that True the Vote group, although what good did they do in Wisconsin? The truth is out that there was massive fraud in the petition for recall process, but what use is the truth when it’s ignored? It’s like us. Voices crying in the wilderness about his ineligibility. To what end? Nobody listens and nobody cares.

    This is a summary of a Newsweek article that’s exposing how Holder deliberately fails to prosecute certain people SO LONG AS THEY PONY UP THE CASH. Justice for sale, they call it. What a surprise! They’re corrupt. It’s said that even leftists are outraged. Probably not at the corruption but that rich guys are getting away with it. They don’t so much love justice as they hate the rich.

  9. Lugar is a lame duck. He lost his primary contest to a Tea Party favorite, Richard Mourdock, in a landslide. This should be a lesson to the RINOs.

    http://nbcpolitics.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/05/08/11604125-six-term-senate-veteran-lugar-defeated-in-indiana-primary?lite

    • Senator Lugar – the man who knows what went on in Russia in 2005 when he and Sen. Obama were detained for several hours. Most likely they were in separate rooms, so he would have one story and Obama another. What do the Russians know about Obama? Were they giving him marching orders under the guise of them being detained for other reasons? They accused him of being a British spy was the story I believe. Why wasn’t this explained in detail when they came back to the US?

      • Yup. I wonder why Barry was really detained. His passport OR to be debriefed on “the plan”? I forgot Lugar was with him. Paper today said that he and Barry became good friends when Barry joined the Senate. Now how believable is THAT? An elderly white senator is best buds with Barry? If that’s true, another indication that Lugar was a RINO or a DISC–DemocRAT in sheep’s clothing.

    • Tea Party Hails Lugar Defeat
      May 9, 2012 Snips

      GOP’s Lugar Resigns from Occupy Wall Street Support Group Oct 14th, 2011

      Is Republican Senator Dick Lugar really a radical, left-leaning, bleeding heart, global warming, farmer-labor New Dealer?

      Uh, yeah, as my son would say.

      Republican US Senator from Indiana Richard Lugar resigned from the board of a radical left activism group called the Campus Network after the Tea Party endorsed challenger in the GOP Senate primary, Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, accused Lugar of supporting the big government agenda of the group, including support of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

      “Lugar’s presence and involvement on this organization’s board unmasks him as a willing participant and a supporter of big government,” said Mourdock. “The fact that so many of the posts on the website are directly supporting the agenda of the Democrat Party should have caused the Senator to resign from the organization long ago.”

  10. Riddle me this: Did we not just see Barry take a victory lap in Afghanistan and “spike the football” about killing OBL? Did we not just get told by his administration that the War on Terror is over? Did we not just also get told that Al Qaeda has been defeated? So then, why are we hearing that the CIA foiled an Al Qaeda plot to blow up a plane? http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-unraveled-bomb-plot-from-within/2012/05/08/gIQA5tKOBU_print.html

    And how stupid is it to advertise that the plot was foiled because of an informant and to let them know how it is that the plot was foiled and to let them know that we know about the “new” type of bomb and so can detect it? Are they trying to warn them so that they won’t get arrested and so that Barry won’t have to let them go surreptitiously or pardon them? Or is it just that he figures that he needs to boost his leadership cred and anti-terrorist cred for election year, so safety of agents and the American people be damned? He also knows that the media’s not going to hold him to the same standard they held GWB to, when they ridiculed him endlessly for “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED”.

    • http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/05/08/al-qaeda-bomber-was-cia-informant-officials-say/

      “The would-be bomber in the airline plot was actually working as a U.S. intelligence informant, but the CIA had Al Qaeda fooled from the start.

      Fox News has learned that a government source familiar with intelligence confirmed that an international sting operation infiltrated the Al Qaeda cell. The informant was apparently one and the same as the bomber [who] got the device out. [Now what I'd like to know is this: What if he was practicing taqiyya on the CIA and he just went ahead and blew up that plane? Another question: Is this Fast and Furious, Yemen? Did we bankroll the production of the bomb? If he'd blown up the plane, would they have told us THEN that he was a paid informer?]

      Last month, U.S. intelligence learned that Al Qaeda’s Yemen branch hoped to launch a spectacular attack using a new, nearly undetectable bomb aboard an airliner bound for America, officials say.

      But the man the terrorists were counting on to carry out the attack was actually working for the CIA and Saudi intelligence, U.S. and Yemeni officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

      The dramatic sting operation thwarted the attack before it had a chance to succeed.

      It was the latest misfire for Al Qaeda, which has repeatedly come close to detonating a bomb aboard an airliner. For the United State, it was a victory that delivered the bomb intact to U.S. intelligence.

      The officials spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the operation. The cooperation of the would-be bomber was first reported Tuesday evening by The Los Angeles Times.

      The FBI is still analyzing the explosive, which was intended to be concealed in a passenger’s underwear. Officials said it was an upgrade over the bomb that failed to detonate on board an airplane over Detroit on Christmas 2009. This new bomb contained no metal and used a chemical — lead azide — that was to be a detonator in a nearly successful 2010 plot to attack cargo planes, officials said.”

      They can’t speak but it’s all over the news. IT was a “victory” for whom? Barry, I’m sure. He’ll be taking that victory lap, too. So what are the odds that the next time, they’re going to allow themselves to be infiltrated and that the plot will be foiled?

      • Think about this. What would we want to out the guy as a double agent? It makes no sense, except Al Queda sent this guy on the suicide mission so never expected to see him again. Where can he go now – back to Saudi to work for the CIA doing something different? But now that it has been advertised about the guy, he won’t be able to help them any further with Al Queda. Lots about this story is just as weird as the other stories we are fed, and when the commentators tell it they don’t make it sound like they believe it either. It was dribbled out in bits and pieces like they did with Bin Laden. Who is to say that the diaper like image they are showing isn’t the one that belonged to the Christmas bomber? Are they raising the fear level for Americans again or do they want to do more pervasive pat-downs at the airport? Sensitivity of the operation – yet it is all over the news? Who leaked the story and why?

        • All good questions. Part of me was suspicious as soon as I heard about it. The more I learn, the more bogus it sounds. The guy is already back in Saudi Arabia, safe, they say. The most astounding thing I read was that he made contact with these people and infiltrated them only very recently. How likely is that?

          Months ago, they were planning and warning the US about this coming attack; but we’re supposed to believe that they accepted into their group and gave the bomb to a guy they did NOT know?

          There’s way more to this than meets the eye. Part of it is what I said yesterday: There’s already a meme developing (journolist, no doubt) that the “law enforcement” policy against terrorists is what works (editorial saying just that in today’s paper) and that’s what this was–a law enforcement approach. It wasn’t that bad, old GWB-style War on Terror.

          So either they’re trying to take away from those who say that it was the policies and procedures that GWB developed and put in place that made killing OBL possible (and not all to Barry’s credit)

          OR they realized as soon as Barry was told about this bomb plot, that whoops! We said “mission accomplished”, Al Qaeda decimated, War on Terror OVER, so now he and his peeps need to ‘splain to the public WHY Barry said that.

          So they’re going to say, what’s over is the old approach. Bush’s approach was called “War on Terror”, but Barry’s technique of law enforcement and intelligence on the ground is far superior. In their spin it is.

    “It is a device similar to the underwear bomber of 2009, but an evolution to that,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

    The device never posed an immediate danger to air travel or the United States, she said.

    But lawmakers said more such devices may exist, and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Michigan, said the release of information about the device could complicate an effort to seal the long-term threat.

    If something bad happens because it was leaked too early, that’s a catastrophe and it’s also a crime,” Rogers told CNN. …

    Information from the double agent proved key to a CIA drone strike Sunday in Yemen that killed Fahd al Quso, 37, a senior operative of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Al-Quso was a suspect in the bombing in 2000 of the USS Cole in Yemen. … Al Quso hinted at the existence of another bomb effort in February, when he was asked whether the group had stopped exporting terrorism operations.

    “The war didn’t end between us and our enemies,” he replied. “Wait for what is coming.”

    Western officials describe AQAP as al Qaeda’s most dangerous affiliate.

    U.S. Rep. Peter King of New York, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, expressed dismay that the news was public.

    “It’s really, to me, unfortunate that this has gotten out, because this could really interfere with operations overseas,” he said. “My understanding is a major investigation is going to be launched because of this.”

    Officials have provided few specifics about the device. But Rogers said it underscores al Qaeda’s continuing efforts to carry out terrorist attacks.

    … President Barack Obama was told last month about the plot, which “underscores the necessity of remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad,” the White House said. …

    “The United States cannot win the war on terror alone, and intelligence sharing must be bilateral if it expects complete cooperation from Yemen.” [The Yemenis said that. So they think there's still a war on terror and it's not won.]

    “This was a key victory for us,” King said. “It also reminds us, though, that this war is not going to end in Afghanistan. … Al Qaeda has metastasized and morphed. And they are constantly attempting to find new ways to get at us.””

    Got it now! It’s the Vigilance on Terror.

    Barry’s spinning this and the journolist is, too, as his victory and not based upon anything GWB put in place. NO! GWB went into two wars but Barry’s using police work, intelligence, and drones to fight, so that’s HIS POLICY and this is HIS VICTORY. That’s how they’re lying.

  13. “Strange Anomalies in the Famous Situation Room Photo”

  14. “Dial ‘O’ for Murder: Voter Fraud, Intimidation, and Murder in the Obama 2008 Campaign”

    “A visual journey through the eyes of those who lived through the massive voter fraud, intimidation, and even accusations of death threats and murder perpetrated by the Obama campaign in 2008. A groundswell of support has risen throughout the United States to take back our country from one Barack Hussein Obama who literally stole the election. …”

    • 1. A woman recounts how the “sign-in sheets” at the Texas caucuses were illegally filled out. They didn’t meet standards in Texas laws. The Obama people overwhelmed the system with bogus sign-in sheets that could not be verified in time. They controlled it at the precinct level, so they were able steal the election.

      2. A black woman talked about how she witnessed two AA young men “deny the right” to vote to an 80-year-old lady by telling her that if she doesn’t vote for Obama then turn around and leave. A white elderly lady said a man got in her face and threatened her.

      3. A woman testifies to Corsi about what she saw: Obama people at the caucuses were tearing up votes and manipulating the votes in the caucuses. Everyone KNEW the “Obama campaign was stealing the election,” even the media, and Pelosi and others were allowing it to happen and changed the rules as they went along. They were not going to allow Obama to lose, no matter how the people voted. Obama was declared the winner even before the delegates were counted and Obama didn’t have enough. Howard Dean said they would not allow Clinton’s name to be put forth and that they would choose Obama by “unanimous” declaration. Petitions were made for the convention to put Hillary’s name in contention. They were bullet proof; there was no way they could throw out these petitions. Stephanie Tubbs-Jones said she’d put the petitions in, even though she got threats from the Obama campaign and the black community. Tubbs-Jones died of a “supposed brain aneurysm, two weeks before” the convention. Not one state party chair would respond when they tried to get another person to do it. Bill Gwatney said all the Arkansas people would vote for Hillary. Gwatney was murdered and the perpetrator was murdered by state troopers, so there was no way to examine his motivation. Gwatney’s wife ended up calling Arkansas for Obama. (There’s a black woman standing right at Mrs. Gwatney’s shoulder, as if coaching her! I noticed this independently. Later in the video, it’s pointed out.) Obama’s people were intimidating people NOT to sign that petition. Corzine was telling media not to talk to the petitioners. Rendell was contacted to tell people not to sign it. The signers are “marked” to this day. The DNC would not give any money to any politicians if they did not ensure at least 51% for Obama in their states, no matter how the people voted. Hillary, “in the spirit of unity”, give a speech declaring Obama the candidate (with a black guy standing right next to her, who looks like the former governor of NY). The woman being interviewed left the DemocRAT party. She says the rule of law and the right of people to vote is being ignored. The DemocRATS are corrupt and Obama stole the election. She believes his whole life story is a fraud. (DUH!)

      4. Reprise of the Bettina Viviano interview with Corsi. Death threats, theft, vandalism, falsified documents–all to ensure Obama is the nominee. Everybody had a story about the fraud to tell her. Ayers and Khalidi were brought out. The Clintons started the allegations that Obama was ineligible. Clinton referenced his ineligibility often. Clintons were not hiding that Obama was not eligible. They were always told the Bill would tell the truth that Obama was “not legit.” She’s shocked that anybody today thinks that he IS legit. People in the film have been threatened to be killed or lose their jobs. Gwatney was killed. Hillary’s superdelegate. Bill’s best friend. She was told that this incident was “shut up, Bill, or you’re next.” Shut up about Obama’s birth certificate. Clinton was going to do it, anyway, until they threatened Chelsea. Clintons stopped attacking his ineligibility and birth certificate after that threat to Chelsea. She says Obama lied, obfuscated, and produced what we all know are forged documents. She doesn’t believe he has the “best intents for this country.”

      5. Ends with a slow-mo view of Mrs. Gwatney flanked by two “supporters” and the documentarian asks whether that’s a look of “abject fear” on her face at the end. He wonders if somebody had a gun to someone’s back while she made the statement.

      (Very reminiscent of the scene in the Godfather II movie, where Frankie Pentangeli’s brother is brought to the Congressional hearings investigating mobster Michael Corleone, flanked by Michael’s thugs, to ensure that Frankie disavowed any knowledge of the mob. I also thought that woman who looks like Fugly Flo was a thug, there to ensure that she didn’t say anything “wrong”. Check out the woman who keeps her hand on Mrs. Gwatney’s shoulder the entire time. This would be classic Obama, to force a grieving widow to do penance for her husband’s disloyalty by acclaiming Obama to the world. Chilling.)

  15. Obama Regime Warns New French Socialist President Not to Implement the Same Policies Obama Advocates
    May 08, 2012

    RUSH: So we have the new French socialist, Monsieur Hollande, and this guy hates the rich. This guy despises the rich. This guy has promised tax increases on the rich and to hell with austerity. We’re not cutting spending. We’re raising taxes and we’re gonna spend and spend and that’s what got him elected. The Obama regime is privately very happy, but they’re also very concerned. They don’t want this guy to implement any of this stuff yet. Have you heard this? Because it’s gonna destroy the French economy, and they don’t want that to happen before the election. They want this guy to wait until after November to destroy the French economy so that it won’t hurt Obama. I’m not making it up.

    “President Obama’s spokesman warned the new socialist president-elect of France not to implement his campaign agenda of ending austerity measures, indicating that such a reversal could damage the world economy. ‘A balanced approach . . . Both fiscal consolidation and efforts to boost the recovery is the right approach for Europe,’ White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters [yesterday]. ‘That’s an approach that he thinks ensures that the recovery continues while putting our fiscal house in order.'” So Jay Carney yesterday said to the new French president, (imitating Carney) “For the sake of the world economy, do not raise taxes and increase spending, yet.” The exact Obama agenda. The precise agenda Obama’s campaigning on. The agenda this guy won on, now Obama, via the spokeskid, Jay Carney, is asking the French — I’m not making this up, folks — is asking the French president not to do this. Seriously, stop and think of this.

    Wikipedia is scrubbing for Barry again. You have to wonder about these guys. If there was no connection between the various publications or groups that used the slogan “Forward!” then why was it necessary to simply delete the entire page? It was there for a long time. Why delete it now? Do they not believe that their readers and users can THINK and DECIDE for themselves? Isn’t that the entire purpose of an encyclopedia? To give readers INFORMATION so they can make their own judgments and arrive at the TRUTH?

    • Why does this writer pull his punches and claim, without an evidence for it and with MUCH evidence against it, that Barry and his team didn’t INTEND to telegraph affinity to socialism and so were ignorant of the meaning of that slogan? Does this writer KNOW Barry’s history? Barry KNOWS what “Forward!” means. Look at the symbol for the O in Obama’s slogan and compare it to that book I showed yesterday, about Frank Marshall Davis. He knows and he chose that slogan COUNTING on only leftists to “get” the snark, just as they counted on only leftists to understand the symbolism of their black-and-red election night outfits.

    • New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism
      By Victor Morton
      April 30, 2012 Snips

      The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.[Oh I think they knew exactly what they were doing and the word they were using!]

      Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”

      “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,” the online encyclopedia explains.

      The slogan “Forward!” 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 “Forward” with the “O” 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 “Vorwaerts” (the German word for “Forward”). 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 “Vpered” (the Russian word for “forward“) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet” (though also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet”).

      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.

    That’s a really good analysis of why it was so damaging to national security for Barry and peeps to “spike the football” again and brag about foiling that bomb plot. The thing is, it’s not necessarily ineptness. They may be practicing taqiyya. Pretending to be conceited and inept, but actually doing all they can to FOIL the successes that our intelligence agencies do make against these terrorists. The most crucial thing this guy pointed out, imho, is how, by making public the fact that they got that treasure trove of info from the OBL raid, it made the knowledge of where all the Al Qaeda safe houses are USELESS. If they’d kept quiet, they could have cleaned out all those rat nests. But they advertised it and poof! All gone. Now, was that a “mistake” and “ego” or was it deliberate, to allow them to go poof? You be the judge.

    Another update on Warren: Her opponent Scott Brown is demanding that she release proof about her claim of being Native American. What’s interesting is this:

    “Republican Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who’s been forced by opponents and the Boston media to release years of personal employment info and National Guard records, is finally weighing in on his foe’s claim she’s part Cherokee by demanding proof of her native heritage.”

    Okay. So now can we expect the BOSTON MEDIA to ask OBAMA for his years of personal employment info and Selective Service records? What are they? Partisan? No, that cannot be. They are unbiased reporters of fact and they vet all candidates. Don’t they?

    • I won’t quote Ann because you have to read her in the entirety to get the gist of her hilarious commentary. But in her own style, Coulter weighed in on Warren: http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/elizabeth-warren-dances-with-lies/

      • http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/05/12/new-media-shames-msm-in-elizabeth-warren-story?utm_source=e_breitbart_com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Breitbart+News+Round+Up%2C+May+14%2C+2012&utm_campaign=Breitbart+News+Round+Up%2C+May+14%2C+2012&utm_term=More

        “The mainstream uncritically accepted the assertion that Warren was 1/32 Cherokee, which they surely would not have done if she were anything but a darling anti-capitalist mouthpiece for them. Imagine the lengths the mainstream press would have gone to make Warren prove her ancestry if she were a conservative who was against affirmative action programs.

        So, it was left to Breitbart News contributor Leahy, an amateur genealogist, to again do the work the mainstream press would not. And he found, “The slender thread upon which Elizabeth Warren’s claim that she is 1/32 Cherokee rests—a purported 1894 marriage license application—has been exposed as non-existent.”

        Leahy contacted an official in the Oklahoma Court Clerk’s office in Guthrie, Oklahoma and discovered the marriage license application in question was not stored and probably not even created. He also discovered, almost unbelievably, that no mainstream media organization had even contacted this official to inquire about the supposed document on which Warren’s claims of being partly Native American rested. Leahy also found that the bride and groom, on the official license of the couple in question, left blank the column where they could have indicated their races.

        Mr. Leahy also discovered the “source” for the Warren’s claim Warren is a 2006 family newsletter, which the New England Historical Genealogical Society found sufficient to deem the assertion an indisputable fact. The Genealogical Society, caught red-handed, has changed spokesmen and now refuses to comment further on this case. But the damage has been done, as the mainstream media ran with their original assessment, now all but proven bogus.

        And then there was the question of who was responsible for listing Warren as a Native American: the professor or her employers. With all the inconsistencies between Warren and Harvard’s accounts, the mainstream media should have made trips en masse to the university. But, of course, they did not.

        Instead, Breitbart News reporter John Sexton discovered both Harvard’s and Warren’s stories did not add up. Sexton discovered a letter written by a Harvard administration official, in response to a New York Times story played up Derrick Bell’s complaints about the lack of diversity at Harvard Law School, indicating that Harvard had a Native American law professor, which was a reference to Warren. Because that letter was no longer available in the online New York Times archives, Sexton had to track down the letter at his local library.

        Further, Sexton discovered that Warren most likely volunteered information that she was Native American to Harvard so the school could properly fill out its reports to the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) because Harvard is a federal contractor.

        As Sexton wrote, “the employer may visually identify the race of the employee, but in Warren’s case that seems unlikely. No one looking at Warren would likely designate her as Native American. … So the most likely way this information became part of Harvard’s official records is via ‘post-employment records’ … which Warren would voluntarily have filled out herself.”

        And with all this evidence and work put right in front of the mainstream media, they still have not put pressure on Warren, which proves the importance of new media and how much it is needed.

        Further, this episode reveals two things Andrew Breitbart always said about the mainstream media and its members. First, they are often lazy and incompetent. Second, they protect their own.

        Thank goodness there are new media reporters like Messrs. Pollak, Leahy, and Sexton to keep the mainstream media — and the liberal politicians they seek to protect and coddle — accountable.”

        They’re too busy making up stories about Romney being a bully in high school, 50 years ago.

  20. Not that I want to send you to read at Huff po, but it is interesting to watch a guy from Media Matters ridiculing the “Vetting of Obama.” It appears they are getting nervous about this so are attempting to smear the fact checking that has been done by numerous blogs – not exactly the media. Our fascination is with how they are trying to dupe those who aren’t aware of the research done on the usurper in the WH.

    Remember Last Time Right-Wing Bloggers Tried to “Vet” Obama?
    5/09/2012

    The publication last week of an excerpt from a forthcoming Barack Obama biography sparked an especially frenzied response from conservative bloggers who view the president’s distant personal past with an unhealthy fascination.

    The book’s new revelation about the identity of a girlfriend Obama had soon after he graduated college nearly 30 years ago, along with the other biographical nuggets, were deemed to be crucial pieces of information that had gone missing during the 2008 campaign season. Washington Examiner columnist Byron York bemoaned the fact that the Vanity Fair excerpt revealed “a portrait of Obama that might have enriched the voters’ understanding of him in the 2008 campaign.”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-boehlert/remember-last-time-rightw_b_1503113.html

    • This sounds like the article where the guy said that Obama admitted that his biography is fake and then he advised people, as Republicans AGAIN vet Obama, to keep a copy of Dreams handy to refer to for “facts”. Nearly everything the guy lists as a “conspiracy theory” is true.

    Thousands of non-citizens registered to vote in Florida. They say it’s just a small percentage, but remember that FL was decided by about 500 votes. There are 2000 potential non-citizens registered in JUST ONE COUNTY in FL. If, however, these are DemocRAT elections officials supposedly cleaning up the rolls, then I’m extremely suspicious. Are they just putting out a bogus story to fool everyone into thinking the rolls are clean? Will they check to see if these people HAVE EVER voted and prosecute them if they did? Will they check to see if they lied on their registrations, claiming to be citizens, and prosecute them if they did?

  23. WTH??? Is this how they got all of the democratic legislation passed during the first couple years and how some of the most ridiculous laws are passed? Time to take note of those in this video and hold them accountable by removing them from the seats they hold!

      Obama Adviser Cites Karl Marx in Defense of Class Warfare
      May 7, 2012 by Scotty Starnes Snips

      Didn’t Obama say something about judging him by those he surrounds himself with and didn’t he admit he sought out Marxist college professors in his book. It all explains why Obama has so many socialist/Marxist friends who believe in the government stealing from one group and given this money to those who vote to keep them in office.

      From Free Beacon:

      A senior Obama administration official defended the efficacy of “class warfare” on his personal blog Monday by quoting the political philosopher and communist theorist Karl Marx.

      Rick Bookstaber, who currently serves on the Financial Stability Oversight Council, the federal body established under the Dodd-Frank Act to “ensure the stability of our nation’s financial system,” took issue with conservative commentator Tucker Carlson’s accusations that liberals were engaging in “class warfare” by seeking to blame the nation’s fiscal problems on a small number of wealthy individuals.

    • Senior Obama Administration Adviser Defends Class Warfare By Quoting Karl Marx
      May 7, 2012 Snips

      Class war is not just inevitable but justifiable writes Rick Bookstaber, who serves on the Obama administraiton’s Financial Stability Oversight Council.

      I wonder if the thinks those Occupy Wall Street protesters breaking out the glass of banks is “justifiable.”

      ~
      I don’t think I need to remind you readers that Marx provided the ideological underpinnings for the “revolutions” that brought us the Soviet Union, Communist China, Communist North Korea and Communist Cuba.

      The Communist regime brought about by Chairman Mao in China alone is responsible for the wholesale slaughter of humanity so enormous that it might even have made Adolf Hitler and his Nazis a little green around the gills.

      That’s where class warfare leads us.

      Finding out that an Obama administration official touts Marx’s philosophy as something worth adhering to should be as controversial as finding out that a similar official harbors a secret love of fascism. But for some reason, despite the commies having amassed a much larger body count over the years, being a socialist doesn’t inspire the same level of revulsion as being a Nazi though the two ideologies have a lot in common, not the lest of which is the subversion of the individual in favor of the state.

    Piven Uses Class Lecture to Lay Out Strategy to Illegally Occupy Foreclosed Homes, Default on Student Debt
    May 8, 2012 Snips

    Frances Fox Piven Offers Advice on Occupying Foreclosed Homes

    CUNY Prof. Frances Fox Piven gave a recent talk laying out new, radical plans for the Occupy movement
    According to her, the movement has to relocate, change tactics
    Public sociologists should help students “refuse to pay their debts” and avoid consequences when they default [Lawlessness!]
    Academia should also assist in the reoccupation of foreclosed homes
    Occupy should exert “pressure” so that the illegal occupation of homes become legal ownership by occupiers [Legal? a word the left doesn't comprehend!]
    Occupy should even figure out how to get the “utilities running” in illegally occupied buildings. [Theft of utilities - can get you fined and jailed!]

    The radical organizers of the Occupy movement are becoming notably desperate in their strategies for disruption. And as the movement continues to try to remain relevant, longtime Occupy cheerleader and radical CUNY professor Frances Fox Piven has offered her advice for some of Occupy’s most radical tactics. In a Skype interview with UC-Berkeley students recently, Piven seemed to offer a game plan by expanding on illegal, and possibly dangerous, actions the movement has toyed with before.

    Piven began by admitting to the classroom that Occupy should look beyond camping in city parks. “My vision of the Occupy movement is that– well, I think it should find some new spaces,” she conceded. “I think Occupy has to relocate, occupy some other spaces. Maybe it’s — it doesn’t have to be in Wall Street – it could be a university building.”

    • When the first lamebrain electrocutes himself, then his family can sue Fox-Piven.

      This was an old ACORN plan (occupy foreclosed houses) before ACORN had to disband. So this tells us that it was probably Barry’s and Fox-Piven’s idea all along.

      Haven’t they done the occupying of university buildings before? Can these people get out of the ’60s and admit that their day is done and it’s the 21st century now?

      btw, the Occupy “movement” is a total dud. If you rounded up all the “protestors” from May Day, you wouldn’t fill the arena where Barry held his campaign kickoff. There were “major” protests against BofA again today. Oh, major, major. The largest was 1000 people, they claim, so cut that by 75% and that may be the truth. Even if 1000: What percentage of the total population is that?

  27. Jack Cashill:

    “Maraniss got every critical detail wrong. Dunham visited Seattle in the summer of 1961, not 1962. She stayed and enrolled at the University of Washington. She had no idea Obama Sr. would head for Harvard a year later. She never went to Cambridge. She told her friends she was headed for Kenya in any case. She never saw her friends again.

    Rare is it that a reporter gets to make so consequential an error, if an error it was. What Maraniss did was to create the illusion that Obama Sr. and Dunham Sr. spent a year together, long enough to share their improbable love and their abiding faith in America. In short, he preserved the fiction on which Obama had built his campaign.

    Next month, Maraniss’s much-discussed new book, “Obama: The Story,” debuts. I am hoping Maraniss corrects the record, but given his track record, we can take at face value nothing Maraniss says about Obama not even his story of the missing girlfriends.”

  28. Are you all as flabbergasted by this news as I am? Michele Bachmann has applied for and become a citizen of Switzerland. She holds DUAL CITIZENSHIP: http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2012/05/michele-bachmann-claims-swiss.html

    Renee tipped me to this and I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t seen the video at that link. Wikipedia wasted NO TIME: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Bachmann

    “”Michele Marie Bachmann (pronounced /ˈbɑːkmən/; née Amble; born April 6, 1956) is an American-Swiss Republican member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Minnesota’s 6th congressional district, a post she has held since 2007. … In addition to their U.S. citizenship, Bachmann and her husband applied for Swiss citizenship for themselves and their three youngest children, and were granted it on 19 March 2012. They had been eligible for this under Swiss nationality law because Marcus Bachmann’s parents were Swiss. Under Swiss law, the Bachmanns are citizens of Wigoltingen, in the canton of Thurgau in northeast Switzerland.”

    Now what I’d like to know is whether Wikipedia announces the dual citizenship of EVERY memeber of the House and Senate who holds it. Barry Obama? Does his Wiki page identify him as a American-Indonesian-Kenyan-British president? OF not, then WHY NOT; and why do they so define Bachmann? OF her move, I had this to say to Renee:

    “I’m very amazed and suspicious of that move by Bachmann to become a dual citizen. WTH is that? I was hoping she’d be Romney’s running mate. IF she is and if she’s a dual citizen, which she apparently NOW is, it’s like they’ve handed Barry another weapon to use to argue that HIS dual citizenship is meaningless. Why would she do this? It’s insane. I understand her husband and that she automatically is eligible to be one, too, but does she HAVE TO? What is going on in her mind with that? Especially since the Tea Party supported her and she has to know what we all think about his dual citizenship. It seems so disloyal to embrace citizenship of another country WHILE you’re a member of the House of Representatives.”

    Again, I’m flabbergasted. What say you? Did you hear about this, when it happened nearly two months ago? Another story: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0512/76072.html#ixzz1uLUI9uKo

    They’re not mentioning Bachmann as being in the running for VP but they are mentioning Nikki Haley who, if I’m not completely wrong, is ineligible in the same way Rubio is. Her parents were immigrants, although I don’t know when they naturalized, if they even ever did. Or when they came. She was born in 1972.

    I just learned that her parents emigrated to the US in 1963, so if they naturalized before 1972, then she’s eligible and I’m fine with her as a candidate. Let’s hope it’s clear from the beginning and she’s transparent about it.

    • DAVOS Miri….do you get the feeling that we are now being ran by dual citizens ? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN REALLY ?
      Freaky…
      HALEY is in the NAMES Miri…like ROOTS…
      Every country has hands in us now ? WTH is that ?

    • MARCUS ? There is your clue Miri….

    • Could Michelle be doing this to bring out Obama’s dual citizenship? Just what is she up to? Can dual citizens even be in Congress? I mean, don’t they have to be a citizen not a shared citizen? Just what does she have up her sleeve?

      • I bet she finally got the scoop on the truth about Obama’s citizenship. I mean actual confirmation, not reasonable inferences. Perhaps, she found out he is legally still a dual citizen and knows it – I mean a smoking gun type thing, not just connecting dots like we do. She is in a reelection campaign, the issue will be raised, and of course she will be attacked, questioned if she can even be in congress if she’s a dual, etc. her response? well, the president is a dual citizen, here’s the documentation (uncovered by Arpaio).

        • Take back she is planning something. Here is her quote. I have a big problem with it. Never thought I would call this woman a ‘ditz’ but a ditz she be! Pay close attention to the last paragraph.

          ““I automatically became a dual citizen of the United States and Switzerland in 1978 when I married my husband, Marcus. Marcus is a dual American and Swiss citizen because he is the son of Swiss immigrants. As a family, we just recently updated our documents,” the Minnesota Republican and former presidential candidate said in a statement. “This is a non-story.”

          But her claim that she has been a Swiss citizen since 1978 raised questions about why, if that’s true, she didn’t disclose this while running for Congress and president of the United States.

          Her office said she didn’t need to.

          “It wasn’t necessary to disclose, because she is an American citizen and always has been. She has a United States birth certificate and a United States passport,” Bachmann spokesperson Becky Rogness told POLITICO on Wednesday evening.

          • I didn’t read the story yet but I believe it is true that sometimes, under the laws of the OTHER country, when someone marries one of their citizens, that person is entitled to citizenship in that country, too. HOWEVER, it seems to me that there’s a big difference between an “understood in the other country situation” and an American taking an affirmative action to formalize the status. What was she doing on March 19, 2012, IN SWITZERLAND (or was it the Swiss embassy here?) being congratulated? Look at this link again. There’s video of her. Is she THAT tone deaf? It’s amazing. I always liked her and now I wonder. Of course, maybe she DOES know something we don’t and is hedging her bets, setting up a place to flee and maybe with their wealth, too. Sad to think like this, but …

            Well, now she’s RENOUNCED it. So, when did Barry renounce HIS multiple citizenships?

            • It sounds like she knew she was dual all along? Like, talk about deception! NOW she renouces? C’mon, Michelle, you really ran for president as a dual citizen? And you knew it! I move her up from a ‘ditz’ in my last comment to a ‘dipsheet’.

          • Look at hypocritcal CNN: In talking about Michele’s dual citizenship, they actually mention that “natural born citizenship” is required to be president. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/05/10/bachmann-no-longer-neutral-on-swiss-citizenship/

            “”Natural born” citizenship is one of the requirements for the presidency, an office Bachmann sought earlier this year.

            Bachmann is of Norwegian ancestry and her husband is Swiss.

            Millions of Americans have dual citizenship, and the U.S. State Department says dual nationals “owe allegiance to both the United States and the foreign country” and “are required to obey the laws of both countries.””

            So when will CNN point out that Barry owes allegiance to at least 4 countries and is required to obey their laws?

            • Another hypocritical story. Look at the LOADED language:

              http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0512/76142.html

              “Rep. Michele Bachmann tried to downplay her dual U.S.-Swiss citizenship Wednesday, releasing a statement that asserts she has actually been a dual citizen since 1978.

              “I automatically became a dual citizen of the United States and Switzerland in 1978 when I married my husband, Marcus. Marcus is a dual American and Swiss citizen because he is the son of Swiss immigrants. As a family, we just recently updated our documents,” the Minnesota Republican and former presidential candidate said in a statement. “This is a non-story.”

              According to her version of events, Bachmann has known she was a Swiss citizen for approximately 34 years. However, she never disclosed her citizenship while running for Congress and president of the United States. [Nor did Barry. NOR DID HE YET disclose it!]

              Her office said that such a disclosure was not necessary. …

              Her statement that she has been a citizen since 1978 is based off a technicality - at the time of her marriage, automatic citizenship was granted to those who married Swiss citizens. However, Marcus Bachmann, her husband, did not register their marriage with Swiss authorities until this year - meaning that the Swiss government was not aware of it until recently.

              Bachmann’s broad conception of citizenship aside, she stressed in her statement that she has “always pledged allegiance” to the United States.”

              HER BROAD CONCEPTION OF CITIZENSHIP? Well, at least she told everybody and OPENLY renounced it. What about Barry? What about HIS BROAD CONCEPTION OF NATURAL BORN CITIZENSHIP? ARGHHHHH! I’m going to lose my mind over their hypocrisy.

            • Here’s another story that actually says MICHELE is a “NATIONAL SECURITY RISK”. And Barry’s NOT when we still don’t know what countries he’s a citizen of or has allegiance to?

              http://news.yahoo.com/michele-bachmanns-swiss-dual-citizenship-national-security-risk-204000638.html

              “But since most of us regular folks wouldn’t get a cleared job with the U.S. government or defense contractors if we had dual citizenship, House Rep. Bachmann should immediately be stripped of all non-public access to government facilities. Moreover, she should resign according to one Huffington Post blogger.

              How are those security clearance rules working for Bachmann now that she’s a dual citizen? She is a member of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Financial Services Committee. Are lawmakers any different from the rest of us in obtaining security clearances? [No. Presidents are.] If we presume that proper notification of her dual citizenship intention and applications were made, as required, to her U.S. Government taxpayer funded employer, aren’t we-the-people due a status report of the presumed security investigation?

              The U.S. State Department’s own security clearance web site states that an “action to acquire or obtain recognition of a foreign citizenship by an American citizen” is enough to warrant an investigation. Not to mention voting in an election, running or holding office, and much more. [Ok. Maybe this is what Michele is up to. We can only hope. If they pull this stuff on Michele, they'll have to do the same for Barry. And HE can't stand the scrutiny.]

              Touting mitigating conditions, such as her husband’s Swiss heritage and the family citizen plan, does not seem like enough to grant a clearance exception for a congressional member. Access to sensitive intelligence or finance committee information should be revoked immediately pending a full investigation and public report.

              There’s also the State Department’s Foreign Influences guideline which indicates several more conditions that raise a security concern. For starters, there’s this portion: “Substantial business, financial, or property interest in a foreign country, or in any foreign-owned or foreign-operated business, which could subject the individual to heightened risk of foreign influence or exploitation.”

              Oh, wait, what the heck? Don’t forget Bachmann just yet. That guideline certainly seems like enough to disqualify Mitt Romney from political office too, doesn’t it?”

              OK. It disqualifies OBAMA right off the bat.

      • Good questions. It’s very bizarre to me. Renee wondered what she knows that WE don’t know. I wonder if she has a Swiss bank account, too? :)

    “Under President Obama: Birth to Age 3: Thanks to federal government’s spending spree–which has kicked into overdrive by the Obama Administration’s attempts to borrow our way out of the recession–Julia is born as a debtor to foreign governments. Her cut of the debt amounts to about $50,000. By age 3, the federal government has already added $5 trillion in new debt she now owes.”

  33. The Left is going back to Mitt’s prep school days to “vet” him, yet they haven’t done as much for BHO. Now they will try to paint him as anti-gay even though they are recounting incidents from high school. When Mitt says he didn’t know someone was gay, it is more than probably correct. It really wasn’t on our radar at the time. The gay bashing attacks on anyone thinking differently than the president who has now evolved in his thinking about gay marriage will begin, and this article appearing a day after BHO gave his new statement that he and his wife have talked about – at length. I bet they have talked – especially after receiving Larry Sinclair’s letter.

    Perhaps these same reporters should visit some of BHO’s friends at Man Country for some truth that is a little more current. The sighting of girl friends for BHO is so that truthful information about BHO’s sexuality will be dismissed. They can go after Mitt instead. Mitt hassled a “CLOSETED” gay – so he should have known the guy was a homosexual? Isn’t that exactly what closeted means – unknown? (The author then says the attacked one is dead – with no explanation. It must be because he was associated with Mitt at the time.) Then a group of guys cut someone’s hair – it was “vicious” according to the unknown person who is feeding the “investigator at the Wash. Post” the information. Looking for dirt and making something out of nothing as can be expected.

    Mitt Romney’s prep school classmates recall pranks, but also troubling incidents
    May 10, 2012

    • And they’re forcing Scott Brown to release his school and National Guard records, but nobody’s asking Barry for ANYTHING. Except us and lawsuits, and he’s still stonewalling.

    • This is SO telling. So orchestrated. And such a load of crap and spin. It could have happened, but these were different times and this kind of thing–hazing–went on a lot. You can’t look at those days by today’s standards. WAS the guy gay? I can’t even tell and I suspect he wasn’t.

      What they’re trying to tell us is that SOME people ASSUMED he was gay but these guys cut his hair because THEY thought it was too long. It was a big deal back when guys first started growing their hair long. I’m not excusing these guys, but they didn’t target him because he was gay.

      Now you know with Barry’s FLIP FLOP on gay marriage, they’re only trying to stir up their “BASE” and get the young kids who’ve been indoctrinated over gay rights and anti-bullying to hate Romney. It doesn’t even matter if it happened because these MOSTLY DEMOCRAT classmates who “remember” this stuff are probably as likely to just MAKE THINGS UP if it suits them and their ideology. Romney says he doesn’t remember the incident. So is his memory worse than these DemocRATS who likely support Obama? One worked for OBAMA’s election. Trust them. Politics didn’t color their memories. The victim is conveniently dead. Did you notice that?

      All boy prep schools are rough. They simply are. Especially in the 60s.

      This is just a taste of how ugly it’s going to get. Smear jobs. Hack jobs. LIES. Distortion. As many lies to hurt Romney as LIES to HELP Barry.

    • Another take on Romney’s prank days: http://ace.mu.nu/archives/329143.php

      • http://dailycaller.com/2012/05/10/cracks-in-the-washington-post-story-on-romneys-pranks-emerge/

        “A question emerges in reading the Washington Post piece on Mitt Romney today: How can Romney’s old pal Stu White tell the Washington Post that he has “long been bothered by the Lauber incident” — and then later admit to ABC News that he was “not present for the prank” and “was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post”?

        This is curious.

        The Washington Post story reports: “I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and has long been bothered by the Lauber incident.”

        But ABC News, says: “White was not present for the prank, in which Romney is said to have forcefully cut a student’s long hair and was not aware of it until this year when he was contacted by the Washington Post.”

        (Emphasis mine.)

        What are we to make of this?”

        What we make of it is: THEY LIE! It’s a set up. It’s a conspiracy of five, abetted by the WaPo. He BECAME aware of it when ASKED about it by the WaPo. Well, I guess it all depends upon WHEN they contacted him this year and what the meaning of “long” is, as in “long been bothered.” Read that ABC News piece fast. They say they’ve updated it numerous times for “context”. But so far they haven’t changed the part about White saying he didn’t know OF the incident until the WaPo contacted him.

        ” Flashback: Obama’s Sordid High School Past
        by Ben Shapiro 7 hours ago 509post a comment
        While the Washington Post has been diligently digging into relatively innocent high school pranks by Mitt Romney, they’ve spent the last few years diligently ignoring President Obama’s far more controversial high school days.

        Obama, by all accounts, was a habitual drug user in high school. He tried cocaine, he admits in Dreams From My Father; he “tried drugs enthusiastically.” The Chicago Tribune reported back in 2007 that Obama thanked the “Choom Gang” in his high school yearbook; “chooming” was Hawaiian slang for smoking pot. The Honolulu Advertiser reported that Obama’s senior portrait “prominently displayed … A package of ‘Zig-Zag’ rolling papers and a matchbook.” One of Obama’s close friends was arrested for drug possession during high school.

        In his memoir, Obama talked about routinely getting high. “Junkie. Pothead,” he wrote. “That’s where I’d been headed: the final, fatal role of the young would-be black man.” But, according to Obama, he only got high because he was contemplating deep matters: drugs could “push questions of who I was out of my mind.”

        Obama told students in 2007 that this activity constituted “goofing off” and “wasting time”:

        “I will confess to you that I was kind of a goof off in high school as my mom reminded me,” Obama said. “I went to high school in Hawaii, so there’s a lot of opportunity to goof off because the weather is really good all the time …

        “You know, I made some bad decisions …. You know, got into drinking and experimenting with drugs. There was a whole stretch of time where I didn’t apply myself. It wasn’t until I got out of … high school, and went to college that I started realizing, man, I wasted a lot of time.”

        The New York Times, however, went out of its way to find Obama’s classmates to testify that drugs played only a “bit part” in Obama’s youth. Yet Obama would later brag on the campaign trail that he “inhaled frequently … that was the point.”

        During his high school years, Obama hung out with communist radical Frank Marshall Davis; in 2007, the Los Angeles Times reported that during his high school days, “he felt the first stirrings of anger toward whites. He says he also delved into black nationalism.” He was “offended or even enraged when white classmates adopted black street slang or revealed their underlying consciousness of his race by going out of their way to tell him how much they admired a black musician or athlete.”

        This activity is certainly more reflective of Obama’s ideological history than Mitt Romney’s pranks on teachers and fellow students.”

        • And another: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/05/10/Does-WaPo-Know-Obama-Shoved-a-Little-Girl

          “If we’re going to delve deep into a candidate’s past, let’s delve deep into a candidate’s past.
          Here’s Obama in his own words admitting to physically shoving a little girl named Coretta.

          Yes, it was at this moment that the first shot in the War on Women was fired.

          … No doubt that after expending all that energy bullying an innocent little girl, young Obama readied himself for round two by eating a Golden Retriever.

          More on this breaking story here.

          If you’re wondering what the rules are regarding a candidate’s past; how far back we’re allowed to go in an attempt to define them — the answer is simple: the corrupt media will let us know.”

          • I clicked on that link to more on the breaking story and I have to say it makes me sad and rather nostalgic to see a blog with so many commenters. It gets lonely here sometimes. Where have all our friends gone?

          • Don’t forget that Obama, while living in Indonesia, broke someone’s arm during a tickle session, or a bike accident. I’m not exactly sure what happened. Obama was reminded of this incident during an interview with an Indonesian t.v. show. http://freedomeden.blogspot.com/2010/03/obama-broke-boys-arm-in-tickle-fight.html

            • Good point, but you won’t see THIS reported in the lamestream. Thanks to Twitter, though, the word of Barry’s BULLYING of a black girl is getting out there, too. From that link above:

              “Obama was tossed a range of softballs about his time growing up in the country (e.g. “Is it true you used to tease your female classmates to get their attention?”). Then, out of nowhere, Nababan came at the president with: “Do you remember breaking someone’s arm?”

              “Yes, I do,” Obama responded, after a brief pause. “We were riding a bike together. And he fell. I was very traumatized. We fell on the bike. Please tell him that I apologize. I felt so bad. I remember feeling terrible.”

              While our initial reaction was surprise that whoever this victim was hasn’t tried to cash in with an OK! magazine interview or something, we were even more intrigued when we noticed on a second viewing that Nababan murmured something about a “tickle fight” causing the accident.”

    • Washington Post is getting slammed from all corners for distorting – lying in their story. The family of the boy whose hair was cut had a few words for them. Very difficult for the media going forward to use John Lauber as their hammer against Mitt if the family believes it is the media who are really the ones responsible for exploiting and victimizing his name. Gotta love it when these hacks are caught in their lies – not that it will stop them in their Obama crusade for reelection. But it sure makes it easier to go after the next piece they write so they can be branded as Obama’s water carrier.

      Family of alleged Romney victim angry over exploitation of story
      8:41 am on May 11, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

      The family of the eight-years-deceased alleged victim of a cruel prank by a teenaged Mitt Romney reacted angrily to the Washington Post story yesterday — but not for the reasons one might imagine. Calling the Washington Post story “factually inaccurate,” the sisters of the late John Lauber lashed out at the Post for using him to “further a political agenda” (via Ed Driscoll at Instapundit):

      The older sister of Mitt Romney’s former high school classmate said she has no knowledge of any bullying incident involving her brother and the GOP presidential candidate.

      Christine Lauber of South Bend, Ind., had not seen the Washington Post’s story that described an incident when Mitt Romney bullied her brother, but said she was aware of the story. The incident centered around Romney allegedly holding the scissors to help cut the hair of John Lauber, who was presumed to be gay and who had long hair.

      Neither of his sisters had heard of the incident from their brother, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. That’s not their main complaint, though: Betsy Lauber, one of John Lauber’s three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story.“The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family,” she said.

      Christine Lauber echoed her sister: She added she and her sisters will likely put out a statement later via a family attorney. “If he were still alive today, he would be furious [about the story],” she said with tears in her eyes.

      ABC notes that both sisters were quoted in the WaPo article. It seems that they were unaware of the real subject matter, or at least the way the Post intended to use their recollections of their brother. It might be interesting to see what else an attorney might have to say about the matter.

      • Washington Post Caught Making SH@# Up! [They kept screen shots of the changes made by Wa Po from the original text with them making no explanation for corrections or apologies for the original story.]

        http://drawandstrike.blogspot.com/2012/05/washington-post-caught-making-sht-up.html?showComment=1336705162167#c7912732307247577026

        Correction Request: Washington Post Uses Falsehood in Romney Hit Piece
        May 10

        Breitbart site want a correction because of the ABC news story where Stu White completely contradicted the Washington Post story.

        “Because Mr. White had not been aware of the incident until this year, it was inaccurate and misleading for the Washington Post to report he had “long been bothered” by the incident.”

      • They NEVER learn, do they? But they don’t need to learn. The DAMAGE is DONE, for those NOT paying attention. Who see only headlines that say, “Romney apologizes for school incidents; ATTACK on student believed to be HOMOSEXUAL is called VICIOUS and SENSELESS by former classmates.” That’s what my paper said today. NOWHERE does it say anything about the WaPo story being discredited. Nor do they report that the “classmates” are “DemocRAT leaning” and one worked for Obama and one was misquoted, didn’t even SEE the incident, and learned of it FROM the media.

        So now the family says they didn’t know about it. “Neither of his sisters had heard of the incident from their brother, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.” See how they mislead? Did the sisters say “but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen,” or is this editorializing by the “reporter”? (Actually, with all these links and quotes, I can’t even tell who said that. Morrissey at Hot Air?) How can it be that he has his long hair badly shorn off, so that he needs a reparative styling, and he “comes back” to school with short DARK hair because the blond locks were cut off, but his SISTERS don’t even notice?!

        Another Breitbart story says

        “So the Washington Post did what no reputable newspaper should ever do when caught falsifying testimony: it made a stealth correction to its own article. The article now reads:

        “I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and said he has been “disturbed” by the Lauber incident since hearing about it several weeks ago, before being contacted by The Washington Post. “But I was not the brunt of any of his pranks.” [emphasis added by the Breitbart author]

        The Post did not note that it had made any correction to the article.

        It was irresponsible of the Post to run the hit piece in the first place, especially given its obvious bias; to retract a critical phrase and replace it without noting the retraction is just as bad.”

        • I notice a subtle change in word choice: Now they say Romney was “holding” the scissors. Does that mean he was standing by while others tackled the kid and then he handed them the scissors and THEY cut his hair? These DemocRATS, including a lawyer who NOW claims what they did was “assault and battery?” The family should SUE this lawyer for admitting to assaulting their kin. Is there a statute of limitations on a hate crime assault? In the case of the Catholic priests, they allowed lawsuits if the memory was repressed. Well, on behalf of their deceased relative, the family NOW knows and just learned what the WaPo SAYS happened, so sue their asses! Go ahead. Make my day. How are these DemocRATS innocent but Romney is guilty?

          They say that the student “returned days later” but his sisters say he was a boarder at the school, so didn’t leave the school. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/mitt-romneys-prep-school-classmates-recall-pranks-but-also-troubling-incidents/2012/05/10/gIQA3WOKFU_story_1.html The WaPo story says Romney held the guy down. It sounds like Maxwell says he held him down by the legs and arms.

          Just look at this story from ABC only 17 hours ago, so they’re doubling down:

          “A high school classmate of presidential candidate Mitt Romney told ABC News today that he considers a particular prank pulled at Michigan’s Cranbrook school to be “assault and battery” and that he witnessed Romney hold the scissors to cut the hair of a student who was being physically pinned to the ground by several others. [Others? Not Maxwell?]

          “It’s a haunting memory. I think it was for everybody that spoke up about it[Is he talking about who spoke up about it NOW? If so, then how does he know who else is speaking out and what THEY feel?] because when you see somebody who is simply different taken down that way and is terrified and you see that look in their eye you never forget it. [He's claiming to be a sympathetic witness here.] And that was what we all walked away with,” said Phillip Maxwell, who is now an attorney and still considers Romney an old friend.

          “I saw it with my own eyes,” said Maxwell, of the anecdote first reported by the Washington Post . Maxwell said Romney held the scissors helping to cut the hair of a student, John Lauber, who was presumed to be gay and who had long hair. [Now isn't that an odd way to put it? He doesn't say Romney used the scissors to cut the hair; he says he held them "helping" to cut it.] “It was a hack job… clumps of hair taken off.”

          Maxwell said he held the boy’s arm and leg, describing he and his friends as a “pack of dogs.”

          Asked if Lauber was targeted because he was gay, as reported by the Post, Maxwell said, “We didn’t know that word in those days… but there were other words that were used. We weren’t ignorant, we just didn’t use the current names for things. [Note how here he deliberately contradicts what Romney said about not knowing about gays. He doubles down and IMPLIES that Romney was homophobic but just didn't call it "gay".]

          Romney has since apologized for what he said were “pranks” in high school but has said he doesn’t remember this specific event. He added that “homosexuality was the furthest thing from his mind” when it came to the jokes he played on classmates. He laughed off the 45-year-old anecdotes during the radio interview today.

          Asked if he has any doubt that what Romney did could be considered bullying, Maxwell responded, “Oh my god, are you kidding?… I castigated myself regularly for not having intervened. I would have felt a lot better about myself had I said hey, enough.” [Castigated himself for NOT intervening? He TOOK PART IN IT. HE HELD THE KID DOWN, ACCORDING TO HIS OWN "MEMORIES".]

          “When I saw the look on his (Lauber’s) face, it was a look I’ll never forget,” said Maxwell. “When you see a victim, the sense of trust betrayed in this boy who was perfectly innocent for being different.”

          This was bullying supreme,” he said.

          Maxwell told ABC News that he is a registered independent, generally votes for Democrats, but has voted Republican in the past. … Maxwell said he believes the incident had to have some effect on Romney. … [AND NOW THE PIECE DE RESISTANCE!] Maxwell added that he believes this is relevant in a Presidential campaign because it speaks to the “character” of Romney.

          BUT IT DOESN’T SPEAK TO THE CHARACTER OF ATTORNEY PHILLIP MAXWELL? WHO HELD THE VICTIM DOWN WHILE ROMNEY “HELD” THE SCISSORS? WHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE A BULLY, A SELF-DESCRIBED, SELF-CONFESSED, SELF-CHARACTERIZED ASSAULTER, BATTERER, BULLY, AND GAY-BASHING, HATE-CRIME PERPETRATOR? This is the only logical conclusion we can draw IF MR. MAXWELL’S STORY IS TRUE. UNLESS the reporters got it wrong again.

          • Another thing WaPo must have scrubbed and/or changed: They did report that the sisters had no knowledge of this incident AND, in direct contradiction to the sister’s correction, they NOW say that he was a boarder at the school, not a day student. So it must have previously falsely said he was a day student. It is totally despicable for them to change stories without letting people know exactly WHAT was changed, when, and why.

            Check out this last page of their story:

            They say Romney was picked on, too. He was ridiculed because his dad worked for the lower rung of automakers and because they drove RAMBLERS. They quote from some writing Romney did and make it a point to find a paragraph with two errors so they can put (sic) in it, to show how dumb he was, I suppose. I’m sure they put (sic) EVERY TIME Barry misspeaks or misspells or uses poor grammar! Now here’s a passage that reveals more about the CHARACTER of Phillip Maxwell:

            Romney “participated on the school’s hockey team as its manager, lugging a duffle bag full of pucks and sticks. Dressed in suit and tie and three-quarter coat, he rode the bus with the uniformed players and kept stats in the coach’s box at the cold outdoor rink. The team’s senior year began with promise, but ended badly. The players took out their frustration on the ice, getting into brawls with Lakeview and Catholic Central. During one fight, Maxwell pulled the jersey over the head of an opposing player and pummeled away. Romney dashed onto the ice, slipping and sliding in his Brogan wingtips in an apparent attempt to break up the fight.

            During the winter of Romney’s sophomore year, the faculty assigned him and Maxwell to mop the floors of the academic halls, part of a World War II-era program meant to instill a work ethic in the students. During their six-week detail, the two old friends had long, rambling conversations about religion, and Maxwell pressed Romney on how he could believe in Mormonism.

            As Maxwell later recalled their discussion, he asked Romney, “How can you believe that thing about the tablets?” referring to the divine gold tablets Mormons believe were discovered in New York and translated by Joseph Smith.

            Romney, he said, responded, “What about the Virgin birth and the holy trinity?”

            “I don’t believe that, either,” Maxwell responded. The discussions ultimately came down to a faith vs. reason equation. [AS IF THEY ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE, WHICH PROGRESSIVES FIRMLY BELIEVE. RELIGION IS SUPERSTITION; ATHEISM IS REASON, ENLIGHTENMENT, SCIENCE, LOGIC, INTELLIGENCE.]

            “You simply have to have faith,” Romney concluded.

            “That’s a cop-out,” Maxwell said.”

            So is there ANY DOUBT that Maxwell is an atheist and a PROGRESSIVE? Anti-religion, biased particularly against Mormons and Christians, and prone to violence because (1) Maxwell held down a gay student while others cut his hair and (2) Maxwell assaulted another hockey player, while ROMNEY came onto the ice to BREAK UP the fight.

            IS it possible Romney doesn’t remember the hair-cutting incident because he wasn’t there? Because if he were there, ROMNEY would have broken it up?

            I’m looking forward to them documenting how EXCLUSIVE Punahou was, how the students were the “creme de la creme,” how Barry was entranced by the wealth of his classmates (must have been because that’s who he sought out to hang with throughout high school AND college–RICH people).

            Don’t you think they’ll write a story about how wealthy and exclusive Punahou was? :)

          • I looked up PHILLIP B. MAXWELL (I believe it’s the same guy) and found his father was John L. Maxwell. What is interesting is John L. Maxwell married Vera M. Kelly in Gladwin on Dec. 25, 1941. Why was it interesting to me? The name Kelly, the same last name Ann was known to use! Maybe nothing but I just thought it rather curious.

  34. Gay marriage a distant dream around the world
    Leon Drouin-Keith, Associated Press, Bangkok, Thailand
    Thu, 05/10/2012

    China’s government considered homosexuality a mental disorder until 2001. Mobs in Senegal have disinterred bodies of men they believe were gays and dragged them through the streets. In Egypt, laws prohibiting “shameless public acts” have been used to imprison gay men.

    While gay-rights activists hailed President Barack Obama’s support for same-sex marriage as a symbolic victory, for many around the world the idea of legal unions between homosexuals is a distant dream. Gay people in many countries would settle for simply getting to be themselves without fear of being attacked or thrown in prison.
    ~

    Obama’s relatives in Kenya declined to comment.

    Malik Abongo Obama, the president’s half brother, said simply: “It’s not for me to say.”

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2012/05/10/gay-marriage-a-distant-dream-around-world.html

    • They asked MALIK? Do you think it’s possible that he had a transsexual nanny because Lolo didn’t think a woman not his mother should care for a boy? A man being preferable but then Ann objected?

      • Isn’t it amazing? All those cultures that are SO BIGOTED against gays. How will the progressives understand them, using their cultural relativity? Oh, what a shame. Barry’s losing popularity in other countries. It’s not going to endear him to a majority of Americans, who support traditional marriage. Are they doing to gayness what they did with race last time? And the “muslim” issue, too? Make all this to-do in order to strike fear in the hearts of anybody lest they be called HOMOPHOBIC (when last time it was RACIST or ISLAMOPHOBIC)? Think about it. What might people say about him? What might come out THIS TIME? Larry Sinclair. His male roommates. So much that we suspected all along. But they don’t want that out there and one way to do it is to get a meme out that Romney might be homophobic. Then that will make all his people and all Republicans shy away from ANY mention of potential gayness or bisexuality with regards to Barry. They get the “girlfriends” out there, too, to make it seem implausible. Just crazy for anybody to think so. Just like it’s CRAZY for anybody to think he’s Muslim or that he WASN’T BORN IN HAWAII.

  35. “I BELIEVE” they used Barry’s 1969 photo with GC … maxed the face..
    photo shopped lots … (same over lap front tooth and added teeth on R of photo) put a paper on L side of face only… chin and all look to be the same.. his nose is large and smoothed turned under more…….they added hair (and some pieces are missing) fixed the eye area some looking down and darkened it…. check the ear and the lobe also… what do we think here????

    • How ridiculous. Is this some prelude to the de-kiss, meaning under the bus with Joe to make way for a new VP? They’re THAT desperate, I think. Who would it be? Some hispanic, I’d bet.

    • Here’s what they’re distracting from. Not that it will stop them from doing it and collecting the dough, which they need: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2012/05/steve-lopez-george-clooney-obama-fundraiser.html

      “They say tonight’s soiree for President Obama at George Clooney’s house in Studio City is supposed to gross $15 million, and the operative word is “gross.”

      Yeah, pardon me for being such a party pooper, but isn’t it a little offensive that 150 of L.A.’s high rollers would shell out $40,000 to kiss Clooney’s ring and get maybe 10 seconds of face time with Obama?

      And what about the thousands of saps who pumped an average of $23 into Obama’s campaign coffers for the chance to be one of the two peons chosen to break bread with the VIPs?

      I’d rather watch the Lakers game from a bar stool, which in fact is what I may do.

      I haven’t seen Clooney’s guest list, but I’d bet $2 -– and not a penny more –- that his house will be full of that particularly unctuous strain of liberals who live for events like this that make them feel good about themselves but don’t really give a toss for their own community. Los Angeles could end up declaring bankruptcy and these posers will be telling friends about their big night at George’s house.

      Fifteen million dollars -– a third of it raised by the local big shots -– is peanuts to Obama, really. Another drop in a bucket the size of Santa Monica Bay. And isn’t money the root of all evil in politics, whether it’s from out-of-control “super PACs” or wanna-be-seen moguls who might be expecting something in return for ponying up?

      Los Angeles is shutting school libraries, laying off teachers and shutting down fire houses. And VIPs are paying $40,000 for a Wolfgang Puck hors d’oeuvre and a silly photo with a president who only now has come to think it might be OK for gay people to have the same rights as straight people.

      Open your eyes, Hollywood hypocrites!”

      Little happens by accident in the Obama White House, or the Obama reelection campaign for that matter if there even is a difference between the two. And the dramatic decision by the president to come out Wednesday in support of same-sex marriage is no exception. Contrary to what many in the news media would have us believe, the decision was carefully planned and timed.

      One thing it was not: It was not the forced result of public pressure coming from others in his administration, starting with Vice President Biden. Biden, who said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he was “absolutely comfortable” with same-sex marriage, was merely playing the role of John the Baptist, preparing the way for Obama’s coming.

      We, and by “we” I mean those of us in the news media who by training and experience are armed to cut through political fog, blindly groped and assumed that it was just Biden once again putting his foot in his mouth.

      Or as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank wrote on Tuesday, another case of the gaffe-prone Biden making a mess that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had to clean up.

      “Carney should be offered a membership in the janitor’s union,” Milbank chortled.

      “Would I have preferred to have done this in my own way, in my own terms, without there being a lot of notice to everybody? Sure…”
      – President Obama

      We should have been tipped off that Biden’s position was prophesy when a day later Education Secretary Arne Duncan, one of Obama’s Chicago cronies, said on MSNBC that he too supported same-sex marriage. Also on Monday, Caroline Kennedy, co-chairman of the Obama reelection campaign said she would push to have a same-sex marriage plank put in the Democratic Platform at the party’s national convention in September.

      But rather than connect the dots and find that we were being softened for the kill, we were encouraged to write and opine that a conscience-torn Obama was becoming increasingly isolated on the same-sex issue as some of his top administration and political aides began abandoning ship. … Wednesday presented the opportune time to come out because it was a day after North Carolina voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Obama’s support, which came in a staged interview with ABC News, overshadowed news coverage of that vote and helped him look like a hero to same-sex marriage supporters demoralized by the North Carolina defeat.” More at link.

      • I was watching “Morning Joe” this a.m. and they discussed that “Meet the Press” was taped on Friday. When it aired on Sunday a.m. they already had spent a couple of days figuring out a strategy.

        • Is that where Biden said it? On Meet the Press? (How can you stand Mika?)

          • I think it was during a round table discussion this a.m. Chuck Todd was there discussing this. Joe was off today, so Mika got to do all the talking. She really does grate on my nerves some days. I’m so sick of her “rich need to pay more taxes, blah, blah, blah” and her facial expressions as well.

          • So why doesn’t she lead the way and give her entire salary to Uncle Sam?

  36. They say that the DemocRAT is 5 points behind the Republican in the Wisconsin recall polls. This is funny: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/05/report-far-left-wisconsin-recallers-owe-17-million-in-back-taxes/

    Somebody ran the names from the recall petition through a tax data base and found a whole bunch of tax scofflaws in the list. They owe over $17 million in back taxes! I hope somebody makes them pay up. The groups tried to suppress the names, but I imagine these petitions are public record. This is what I found amusing and SO AMERICAN:

    “‘They had every right to do this (sign the petitions), and I have every right to match them up. They have every right to not like it, and I have every right not to care,’ the site’s creator said.”

    He made a list of the deadbeats and put it on a website: http://www.putwisconsinfirst.com/taxdelinquents/
