Welcome HOME, Mr. President (Open Thread)

child-waits-catch-a-glimpse-of-barack-obama

The Obama family is in Africa–the immediate family, as well as Mrs. Marian Robinson and her son’s daughter.  The trip is said to cost taxpayers $100 MILLION.  In the meantime, the White House remains closed to visiting citizens, because the president alleges that the government can’t afford to pay for tour guides and security (not even when the resident family is in Africa).

Look closely at the photo above. Those African children’s t-shirts read:

WELCOME HOME

We’ve always suspected that the Africans know more than we do.

The view from their hotel room in Senegal:

Enjoy your SUMMER OF SEQUESTRATION!

  1. The child of privilege is NOT going to visit his brother George. The view from George’s room is not quite so inviting:

  2. Not such a great view from Granny Sarah’s home in Kogelo, Kenya, either. Why they’re not going to visit her? After all, how many years does she have left and how many more opportunities will there be? Then again, the family was not wont to see Madelyn, either, before she passed on, so …

    “Michelle Obama Likens Her Upbringing to Senegalese Children’s”

    Oh, I’m sure. The poorest of the poor in the USA have it FAR BETTER than the poor of Senegal. You can bet on that. Of course, leave it to Mooch to make it all about her AND to denigrate that country that she’s always been so ashamed of. Fanacht ann.

  4. WHAT I SAID! http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2013/06/report-immigration-bill-will.html

    ““Immigration” Bill – About Amnesty or ELIGIBILITY??

    … This Dictator and his band of socialist leg humpers are DESPERATE for a solution and they are trying to rush through legislation to cover his eligibility and other personal issues related to it.

    Friends and Patriots…That piece of legislation is cleverly hidden in one of todays most watched issues.

    It’s called…

    IMMIGRATION REFORM!!! …”

    The writer lists what I listed in here about document fraud. In addition, I’ve since read somewhere that you have to have used 3 or more fake passports in order to disqualify from amnesty. Ok. Here it is: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/bill-only-someone-who-counterfeits-alters-or-falsely-makes-3-or-more-passports-has

    This RPI (registered provisional immigrant) status won’t EXCUSE someone from the crime (or will it)? Does it ONLY allow the person to stay but still face penalties (if you could get DOJ to issue charges)? OK. Some of the text:

    “Any person who, during any period of 3 years or less, knowingly and without lawful authority produces; forges, counterfeits, alters or falsely makes 3 or more passports; secures, possesses, uses, receives, buys, sells, or distributes 3 or more passports, knowing the passports to be forged, counterfeited, altered, falsely made, stolen, procured by fraud, or produced or issued without lawful authority; or completes, mails, prepares, presents, signs or submits 3 or more applications for a United States passport, knowing the applications to contain any materially false statement or representation shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years or both.”

    So what happens if it’s less than 3 false passports created, forged, used, or fraudulently applied for? Why the 3 years or less proviso? Did Barry get his bogus passports within, say, 2 years and 11 months? I put NOTHING past these people. There’s got to be a reason for this provision and also the ones about fake BCs, SS#s with false IDs, falsified I-9s, altering a SS card, and other “document fraud” to prove eligibility for employment. He’s OUR EMPLOYEE. NOTHING is ever by accident in the Obamanation. There’s NO REASON to excuse these people from document fraud to get employment. The 3 passport thing is VERY, VERY weird. Does Barry have 2 bogus passports?

    This really and truly could be a stealth thing put in there in case at any point in the near future, say after Barry’s left office, the TRUTH comes out. Then they can fall back on these provisions–say, well, it’s sad but immigration reform excused his crimes, so they’re not crimes. No need to hope that a future POTUS would risk political capital by pardoning him. No need to pardon himself before leaving office OR any of his accomplices, either. I didn’t read that passport thing in context of the bill, so don’t know whether it applies ONLY to those who come forward and apply for RPI status. (And since they’re all complicit, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that they secretly processed Barry as one of the illegal aliens getting this status.)

    • http://www.thenationalpatriot.com/2013/06/27/immigration-bill-about-amnesty-or-eligibility/

      That’s the original article and it contains interesting analysis at the end, explaining the many reasons why they would want to decriminalize Obama and why many are pushing this through as fast as they can. If he’s proved ineligible, once they know that we have been right all along, then they will be smacked in the face with the reality that he was NEVER president (not even a CITIZEN) and everything done is void.

    • http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c113:2:./temp/~c113Nz9QRu:e2148660: I THINK that’s the section, but I don’t know if this is the CURRENT version that will be voted on. It MAY BE that these loopholes were changed. I wish I were a lawyer and I wish that they didn’t DELIBERATELY obfuscate this. There still seems to be some loophole for Barry, depending upon where (if he did) he was when he made a false application and where it was mailed to, because it can only be prosecuted in those locales. So if it’s Chicago … fugehdaboudit.

    • right now it’s illegal to falsifly any piece of information or record….ANY and ALL , so all the illegals here now, many , if not most have at least one falsified information on their person , so this is to escape the obvious when these undocumented ones here now can get by the system and not Stop, bus pass Go into this next bit of legislation, or any other. to move these folks closer to being a legal citizen. I mean , this is a tiny little problem with any new legislation towards amnesty. Here again government has to pass unegwual laws for illegals as apposed to all other citizens. They get the three strikes you’re out rule, but I betua us citizens would still be prosecuted if we fake any thing, passport, birth certificate,i.e. It aint going to work.

      • The thing is: It didn’t look as if they qualified that for only these people who want to apply for RPI status. It looked to me like an across-the-board amnesty for most document fraud. I’m pretty sure it’s not in the bill the Senate passed, but the way they chop them up and insert pieces and take out pieces, who knows? IF it ever gets to reconciliation, that will just get worse and then they’ll have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. ;)

        You know what I don’t trust? The people on their staffs. EVEN IF they vote on the bill in one DIGITAL form, who prevents or even knows it the same obots who forged documents don’t also insert whatever the hell they want after the fact?

        I also do not believe in this sudden “find” of “progressive” on the IRS BOLO list. It’s AS LIKELY that that word was inserted onto the digital spreadsheet AFTER THE FACT, as a cover, so Werfel and the DemoncRATS could claim to the AP that progressives were targeted, too. Mr. George found NOTHING like that and he’s backed up it, again. Putting to lie the attempt Werfel pulled to throw a bone to the DemoncRATS and save Barry’s ass. He’s a toady.

            • That’s weird. How did you figure that out? It’s easy for me to see as the moderator, but how’d you know? I don’t understand the “hyperlinked”. I don’t like that one bit because if they’re inserting things like that when you’re not, then what else are they sharing with others that we don’t know about, such as our email addresses?

When people ask why the Republican Party is silent on the lack of natural born Citizenship of Obama answer to them — Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, and Bobby Jindal … and likely other (possibly Nikki Haley) upcoming Republican stars who are NOT natural born Citizens of the United States to constitutional standards and whom the RNC wants to run for President of VP anyway.”

            • I don’t think he has any chance, so I’m not going to spend time at the moment looking into it again. I can’t even remember where we left off on that one. If it ever comes back to haunt us, then I’ll do a search and re-research the whole thing again. I fear the “precedent” has been set. Conspired upon. Agreed upon. The meme and the spin is out there. The public is being trained. It’s only a matter of time until Roberts is told to define the term as the insiders see fit.

          • I’m starting to believe more people don’t want to run for president than do….if this is all we get to choose from. We got several on this list who are half citizens just dying for the chance, then we got neo-cons and overzealous patsys . How many of these have served in the military? Condoleeza served on some big Oil boards and I don’t trust her. However, any of these would do over Hillary the pompous scam artist. Trump , I don’t know he would enjoy the role,but he might “sell” us out . Jeb Bush, the reverend, no thankyou, no more oil families.
            I think some of the most viable people who understand Liberty, just don’t want to have to do what it would take to really get this country back in shape. They know they would be miserable half the time. I do like Rand Paul…sort of.and Paul Ryan, sort of.

          • Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, and Sarah Palin. Allen West, but his name isn’t there, is it? This is the best they can come up with? No blacks of either sex other than Condoleeza Rice? Please.

    Obama’s trip likely has more to do with China; China has traveled to dozens of African countries, invested billions of dollars in natural resources, built infrastructure – all of which has landed criticism on US’ policies of do-nothing-but intervene, cause war & rob African resources.
    What sort of African countries would be interested in greater American presence?

    • they want the U.N. throne

    • That may be true. I read today that China is going all out with investing in Africa. Isn’t it special, though, that Barry yesterday praised the VOTER ID system they have in (I think) Senegal AND his peeps talked about how he’s over there to encourage medium and small businesses to invest IN AFRICA! Unemployment in the USA is nearly as bad as EVER and Barry’s working to get businesses and JOBS in AFRICA! Even as he praises the immigration bill that will destroy JOBS for US CITIZENS, especially those of lower-skilled, lower-income, and MINORITY CITIZENS.

    • Oh, that’s funny. I saw some of those additional photos in today’s paper. Of course, since we all KNOW that SENEGAL isn’t his “home” then that’s just a figure of speech, isn’t it? How’s about Equatorial Guinea? Is he visiting THAT home, too?

      • You know Val Jarrett’s dad was a geneticist/ethics/biological scientist and collected specimens of genetic material from Guinea and all over the place. Hmm….maybe Obama does have have more than one place of origin. Maybe that halo that’s sometimes over O’s head is just a petre disch!!!

        • Good point. It’s entirely possible. He might have been a turkey baster baby.

          • Just frigin’….perfect … yep…I’d bet BIG on that one…. I think
            none of the parents…are HIS….. and groups of people look
            very similar … with zero blood ties …. when we really find out?

  12. I say in jest because of strange resemblance of Obama to Mandela that I find the headline at Drudge about Nelson taking a turn overnight for the better a bit interesting. Many an old one that is close to death holds on to see a loved one and perks up briefly when it looks like the loved one is arriving for visit. Oh but since Barry not Nelson’s loved one there will not be a visit or will there?

    • It is a very strange resemblance, indeed. Strange, too, that we never remarked upon it before. I didn’t know Mandela took a turn for the better. I heard that there are rumors that he’s gone already, but who knows? Does one expect truth from ANY government these days? Good point that a person tends to hold on to wait to see a loved one. They still equivocate over whether or not Barry will be allowed to visit. The family is angry at media intrusions; they claim it’s their “culture” to not have intruders at the bedside of dying loved ones. If so, then it will be REALLY interesting to see who shows up. Then again, if he goes, they may not tell us anyway. But can the media resist? Remember the death watch for Madelyn? Oh, yeah. What death watch? Was anybody with the poor woman when she passed, other than the GUARDS posted by her “grandson”? Has anybody seen or heard from Granny Sarah since her car “accident”?

      • The family gets angry at media intrusions, hmmm again…..are they waiting for Obama….with his enterage’ of media of course.Will there be more “welcome home” shirts in Pretoria? This should be interesting. Will the Mandela’s not like O. upstaging their President?

    • OK, I really thought I saw that headline at Drudge about Mandela but it is nowhere to be seen now. When google story shows up at WaPo, thought.

      • “When google story shows up at WaPo, though” was to be, “When I googled the story it showed up a WaPo, though.” Gives it a whole new meaning….

    • And I was thinking that Madiba was holding on so it could be a considered some kind of miracle for obeiber when he landed “Home”.

      Like he blinked or something at the exact same minute.

    Paul Sperry:

    “Obama Brings Affirmative Action Back With A Vengeance”

    “While the Supreme Court rolls back the Voting Rights Act of 1965, condemning it as an unnecessary vestige of the civil-rights era, President Obama is acting as if America were still in the mid-’60s.

    His race-obsessed administration is bringing racial preferences and affirmative action back with a vengeance.

    And it’s doing so outside the legislative process, largely behind the scenes, through executive orders, regulations and prosecutions, effectively expanding existing civil-rights law.”

    http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials-perspective/062713-661675-obama-pushing-racial-preferences-on-employers-lenders-schools.htm?p=full

    • ” … Consider the following race-based policy moves, which have gone largely unreported by the major media — and unnoticed by the general public (which polls show overwhelming oppose racial quotas in college and hiring and other favoritism):

      To boost minority hiring, the EEOC recently warned employers they could be considered guilty of “race discrimination if they choose law-abiding applicants over applicants with criminal convictions.” The predictable result: hiring quotas for felons.

      At the same time, the Labor Department is warning federal contractors to refrain from asking employees about felonies.

      It’s also demanding they modify their hiring policies to favor minorities.

      The agency also advised that all FDIC-insured banks must develop and implement an “affirmative action program” for hiring.

      The administration, moreover, has adopted an interagency “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” that makes it “permissible” (and strongly advisable) for banks to apply more favorable lending terms for minority borrowers “to address past discrimination.”

      It has also formalized the use of a lower standard of proof — “disparate impact” liability — for enforcing anti-discrimination laws in housing and lending.

      Now, just about any race-neutral policy or practice — from mortgage underwriting standards to credit scoring to criminal background checks — can be deemed racist if it tends to result in adverse outcomes for blacks or Latinos.

      For the first time, disparate impact is woven through all civil-rights enforcement of the federal government. …”

      There’s more. That’s just a sample. I think we noticed and reported most of these. I’m glad to see that others are finally noticing, too. But what good does it do 5 years later? Our government is “fundamentally transformed” and it will be next to impossible to roll all this back. That was their plan from the beginning. Once in existence, no bureaucracy is ever abolished. And the public employee unions will see to it that the jobs exist forever, too.

    68 Senators Vote to Create Incentive for Employers to Hire Amnestied Immigrants Over U.S. Citizens

    The immigration bill passed by the Senate Thursday afternoon would give some employers a financial incentive to employ “registered provisional immigrants” (illegal immigrants granted legal status) instead of U.S. citizens.

    As the Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein recently reported: “Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker. But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens – at least 13 years under the Senate bill – businesses could avoid such fines by hiring the new immigrants instead.

    On Tuesday, THE WEEKLY STANDARD asked five U.S. senators about this problem, and none of them knew if it was a problem. “We’re trying to solve that right now. I don’t know if that’s been solved,” Senator Max Baucus of Montana (chief author of Obamacare) told THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

    “I don’t know. I’d have to look at it closely,” said Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania. “I just haven’t read it that closely to know.” …”

    The story goes on to prove that this IS true and is still in the bill, as passed yesterday. Note that these are LARGE businesses who could pull this stunt for the next 13 years, putting CITIZENS out of jobs, evading fines, not having to pay health care premiums for the AMNESTIED ILLEGALS, AND these are likely GOOD PAYING JOBS because they are LARGE COMPANIES versus small businesses. This means probably factory/manufacturing/UNION jobs. I wonder will the unions welcome these ILLEGALS with open arms? Probably, so long as they pay dues. But what about the other UNION CITIZENS who are displaced?

    “… A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified he saw two men in a “tussle” outside his home the night of Feb. 26, 2012, and said he now believes the person on top in the altercation – which would moments later turn fatal – was Trayvon Martin.

    In key testimony, he also said he believes George Zimmerman was the person yelling for help. …”

    You “white people” just don’t get it: http://globalgrind.com/news/what-white-people-dont-understand-about-rachel-jeantel-trayvon-martin-blog

    “A predominantly white jury is not going to like Rachel Jeantel. Let’s just be real here.

    The 19-year-old Miami native is an easy target for obvious, yet shallow reasons. …

    And if the 5 white jurors (excluding the 1 Latina) are like most white people I know, they are unfortunately not going to like Rachel. They won’t understand her, especially not her defensive nature, and this will unfortunately work against her. Even though it shouldn’t.” [How’s that for racist stereotyping? How insulting to the women on the jury to assume they won’t sort the wheat from the chaff and fairly judge what she says and not how she says it!]

    The problem is that EVERYBODY understands disrespectful smart-ass behavior. Ask ANY mother what she thinks about Rachel’s ‘tude. Ask any father. Everybody gets it and it’s a shame that this woman was used and put in that position by race baiters. WHAT logical reason was there for the POLICE in their FIRST INTERVIEW of Rachel to have her sitting NEXT TO THE DECEASED’S MOTHER? Is that ordinary police procedure? I think not. They set her up. She was set there next to the mother and she now admits that she said what she thought was expected of her to say. She censored herself, she admits under oath, which means nothing because she’s already lied multiple times under oath. I do feel sorry for her. She was used, like Tawana Browley was used by Al Sharpton, another race baiter.

    • Great to have an eye witness but unless there is an eyewitness ‘of color’ it is just gonna be the testimony of a lying cracker and it is all just a part of the conspiracy to frame Sweet Tray.

    • Jack Cashill:

      “Save for the true believers, the expectations did not survive the afternoon. The plus-size, American-born daughter of Haitian and Dominican parents, 19 at the time of the trial, defied easy description. She was sassy, defiant and all but incomprehensible.

      Before she was through, she would test the patience of the prosecution, the defense, the judge and especially the court reporter.

      The most pathetic moment in the two days of her testimony occurred when Jeantel, a high school senior, proved unable to read back a letter she was originally alleged to have written. “I don’t read cursive,” she said.

      Defense attorney Don West quickly established that Jeantel was 18 at the time of the shooting not 16, that she had not been hospitalized, and that she was not Martin’s girlfriend. He also confirmed that she lied about the hospitalization under oath,

      West walked Jeantel through the various stories she had been telling since first going public, emphasizing their discrepancies.”

      • We must understand that it’s not her “culture” to know the meaning of lying, especially under oath. I say that tongue-in-cheek, fully expecting to hear this from SOME idiot, somewhere in the USA.

    just thought I’d check and sure enough there are rumors Mandela is already dead. Hmmmm. …don’t know but could be true…we’ll see what happens when “idol” Obama arrives….maybe Mandela’s worshipped spirit will have somewhere new to reside???????!!!!

    • OMG, it is transcontinental:

      “However, rumors about the anti-apartheid leader’s death continued to be circulated.

      We cannot blame daughter Makaziwe Mandela from angrily saying that, “There’s sort of a racist element with many of the foreign media, where they just cross boundaries. It’s truly like vultures waiting when the lion has devoured the buffalo, waiting there for the last of the carcass. That’s the image we have as a family.””

      If Barry had a father …

  18. Rosemary Woodhouse

    Mandela’s daughter says there a racist element among foreign journalists. You can’t make the chit up!

    • Figuratively speaking, of course. I have a dream that he will be so enamored of the continent of his birth, his “home” country, that he will decide to stay and run for president of the United States of Africa. Or UN Secretary General, but I prefer the former because it means he stays over there. Abdication is a wholly right and upstanding thing to do. Just ask King Edward VIII.

      as in … ( ALL THAT 4 a dang FLAG??) WORDS … HURT US ALL!!!

      • Good riposte! “All that 4 a door.” Yep. Did you hear that he said, with regard to visiting Mandela, that he doesn’t “need the photo op.” It’s always all about HIM. I read a story about Mooch over there and it was all about HER, too. Everything she said was related to herself. These people are so danged self-involved, so narcissistic, it’s amazing that they can pull themselves away from the mirror every morning. As for me, I prefer this mirror: http://www.michellesmirror.com/2013/06/only-in-america.html#.Uc9-aqxv6lg

        “Only in America…

        …could a man whose African forebears sold blacks into slavery and whose American forebears owned slaves marry a woman whose lineage includes both slaves and slave owners, become POTUS and FLOTUS.

        And again, only in America, could a POTUS and FLOTUS with such genealogies employ the benefits of white guilt to their political advantage so successfully.

        Do not think for one minute that the irony privilege is lost on them. Indeed, only in America could the descendent of Muslim slave traders be elected by a majority of white voters (none of whom ever owned slaves and most of whom didn’t even have ancestors who owned slaves) and continue in ways both large and small to accuse them of harboring racism in their hearts. …”

        Do go there and read the rest and view the photos (gag alert). “Alinsky works for us now!”

    Miri, I assume you saw what WordPress did as the post was presumably deleted. FYI, I’ve occasionally noticed in the past that when I type in my email and namein the proper fields, **your** gravatar link appears in the “website” portion. I’ve always erased it prior to posting and never thought twice about it. I didn’t notice your gravatar in the website portion today until AFTER it posted and my name was hyperlinked. Something you**definitely** should report to WP.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have the time right now to type all of the names again. Maybe later. RW

    • I didn’t, RW. Maybe they had a bug and fixed it? I was offline since before you posted until just a little while ago. So either WordPress did it or another moderator fixed the problem. I WILL ask WP what the heck is going on. Why would my gravatar link appear in the website portion when you’re entering into what should be blank fields?

  22. 4 hours ago..? I love the part about “african voting” ~ 1 person…
    ~ 1 VOTE… WOW…. they are ahead of us 4 sure!!!

    • You know what I keep thinking? That this is going on in their minds: How DARE he upstage us by being at death’s door and hogging all the media attention?

    • He’s BLAMING BUSH even in Africa! It’s amazing. It’s GWB’s fault that there’s no money in the budget now and that the Republicans gave Bush more money to spend on Africa when he was president. This guy knows no shame and there is NO EXCUSE he won’t try. What a juvenile and what an embarrassment he is to us.

    UGH…never mind. The post is still there. I just didn’t scroll up far enough. It’s still an issue you should report to WordPress. I know I would.

    Minor in the scheme of things, but important to get a message across.. If any of you have a QVC account, call 1 800 367 9440, press #0 when you get the recording and complain about their “taking pause” with Paula Deen. I said she made a mistake and apologized and they were going to lose a lot of business as a result. They logged my “feedback” Pass this on. If enough people do it, perhaps they’ll reconsider. Sears holding has dropped her as has her publisher, Ballantine, despite the fact that her cookbook, a pre-order, is Amazon’s #1 seller.

    We can’t simply complain. It’s time to fight back.

    • I expect that from Sears. In out area there’s a K-Mart with a giant half empty parking lot that the manager at K=mart said the teaparty could use to hold a July forth gathering. Sears, who owns K-Mart wrote the teaparty a Sieze and desist letter and would not allow it. I hear that happened in Georgia too. Sears folks are really, really politically correct snotballs (I’m not talking about they’re employees).

      • Dana Loesch hit on something on her radio show last week. She connected the IRS targeting to the LOCAL targeting of Tea Parties, too. Remember the differential treatment across the country given to Occupiers (who didn’t have to get permits to protest or march, nor insurance, not put up port-a-potties, nor clean up after themselves, etc.) versus Tea Partiers, who DID have to do all that, as required by local governments? This shows that the targeting went far beyond the federal government. Up and down, across the nation, the DemoncRATS put out the orders to governors, mayors, chiefs of police, URBAN politicos where DemoncRATS usually make the rules: Stifle the Tea Party. Harass them. Shut them up BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. They used the POWER of government, across the board, to prevent these citizens from taking part in the political process and from exercising their constitutional rights. It is and was sheer thuggery. Un-AMERICAN. But they did it and they got away with it.

    • Unbelievable isn’t it Rosemary, considering true fact’s of the democratic party and how they are now holding something as ridiculous as this against Paula Deen. The Democratic party has always used racist demagoguery to deceive, divide and concur, to to further their agendas.

      So my question to these hypocritical democrats is why was it okay that Bill and Hillary Clinton got away with using the “N” word in the past, but they want to crucify any other person of white color that has used the “N” word in the past like Paula Deen. Because…. race-baiting, it’s a democrat agenda, divide a nation and concur, while their “people” like Hillary and Bill get a pass. I read Paula Deen had voted for Barry, her “mistake” was saying Moo’chelle ate like a pig when Moo’chelle was on her show and the cameras quit rolling. Same politics the Clinton’s played. It was a pay back to Paula and it fit into their “agenda” perfectly.

      THE REAL HILLARY CLINTON: Witches In Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Race-Baiting Stones

      Monday, January 13, 2003

      snip ~

      Hillary wasted little time before she engaged in a partisan diatribe against the Republicans. She has made it clear that, along with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, she will lead the charge to race-bait every Republican she possibly can from now until November 2004.

      Within days Hillary told FOXNews: “I mean, what [Lott] did was state publicly what many of them have stated privately over many years in the back roads and back streets of the South.”

      Hillary’s husband is from the South. Perhaps she speaks with authority. After all, Arkansas troopers who knew her husband for many years told of his affinity for the “N” word, particulary when one of them did something to upset him.

      From the NewsMax account of Sean Hannity’s interview with trooper Larry Patterson:

      But Patterson’s story has gained new significance with the upcoming publication of “State of the Union,” a new book on the Clintons’ marriage that makes the same charge.

      The one-time Arkansas state policeman said he stands by the story he told for the first time last year. “She would say ‘Jew Bastard’ or call her husband a ‘Jew Boy’ or an ‘MF Jew’,” he told the New York radio audience.

      HANNITY: And you heard that how many times in the six years that you guarded the Clintons? How many times do you think that you heard that?
      PATTERSON: A few times. Not hundreds of times but …
      HANNITY: Five times? Ten times?
      PATTERSON: More than ten times.
      HANNITY: Less than twenty?
      PATTERSON: Probably less than twenty. And I’m being very honest and trying to be very, very fair. Yes, it would be more than ten, less than twenty.

      The topic turned to slurs against African-Americans after Hannity played a police surveillance tape where first brother Roger Clinton used the “N” word four times to refer to blacks within a 20-second clip.

      HANNITY: Did you ever hear Bill or Hillary use the “N” word?
      PATTERSON: Certainly, certainly. They told jokes using the “N” word. Especially Bill Clinton did. And if one of the black leaders in the community, if Bill Clinton was upset with him, especially Robert “Say” McIntosh, he often used the “N” word to describe or in conversation with Mr. McIntosh. …

      Earlier on Monday, another former Clinton bodyguard, L.D. Brown, told NewsMax.com that the president would regularly make derogatory comments about African-Americans in private. “He has used the ‘N’ word before. … Bill would make snide remarks about blacks behind their backs,” Brown said.

      Patterson said Hillary was no stranger to the “N” word either.

      HANNITY: How many times did you hear Hillary use the “N” word?
      PATTERSON: Probably six, eight, ten times. She would be upset with someone in the black community and she would use the “N” word, like, you heard they’ve got the president’s brother on tape using the “N” word. So, yeah it was used.

      The former Clinton bodyguard said he knew four or five others once close to the Clintons who would be willing to corroborate claims about Bill and Hillary’s bigoted language on the record.

      • Excellent find, Leza. It gripes me no end. It infuriates me. The hypocrisy of the left knows NO BOUNDS. Remember when Carville said this about Paula Jones? “Drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park and there’s no telling what you’ll get.” THAT’S ANOTHER REASON WHY THEY HATE PAULA DEEN. She is not ONE OF THEM. They look down their long elite noses at her. She’s the wrong color of poor, single mother. If she were Fantasia, why, it would be another story. But THIS self-made woman unfortunately was born white. I wonder if Fantasia has ever used the n-word or “cracker” or “Jew bastard”? Ya think? I wonder if we put Hillary under oath, or Bill, would EITHER tell the truth? They wouldn’t know the truth if it rose up and smacked them in their faces.

    • I agree, but at least QVC said that they’re only taking this pause and that they believe that everyone deserves a second chance. The sheer stupidity of this whole imbroglio defies logic. The woman was under oath. She told the TRUTH and admitted that DECADES AGO she used the n-word in a conversation. NOT against anyone. NOT to anyone’s face. For decades, throughout her entire career, nobody even knew this until she admitted to it under oath because she’s apparently an honorable woman who WON’T lie, unlike the lying liars in the Obama administration, many of whom lie UNDER OATH without batting an eye. WHY is she being persecuted? She invoked the words of Jesus Christ, when she alluded to his admonishment “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” WHO among us has NOT ever used a stereotypical racial word or told a racial joke? Before you answer, remember that Polish jokes and dumb blonde jokes are racial, too.

  25. A couple of weeks ago some search led me to a site of archived articles; not sure even what I was searching but when I got there I looked around and started to search, for fun, some names familiar around here. An article or two would come up with just a little bit displayed and had to sign in or register for the rest. Wow. The information form for free registration was detailed. For the first time in many years, I actually filled in my real information. Did I mention some articles did show up when searched certain names combined? So, I get this nice email but guess they thought my answers to the questionnaire not up front:

    “Dear (XXXXXXXXX),

    Thank you for making application for a login to the full ANC Digital Archive.

    Once we have contented ourselves that your application is genuine and
    that you will be researching the material in the ANC Archives for your
    stated purpose you will receive an email confirming your password.

    Your password will give you access to view full-length previews of video
    and audio, view the text of documents or gain access to watermarked
    comping images. Should you require access to high quality files for
    research purposes, you are able to order these. The password will be
    useable for one month from the day of its generation.

    Yours sincerely,
    Zolile Mvunelo
    Archivist
    African National Congress”

    And the form to register, http://ancarchives.org.za/archives/

    Just thought interesting. So, today I match the same name combos and, why, surprise! No articles show up.

    • so I’m curious Hoot, have you gotten any information from the ANC archives yet? I always balk if I have to fill out stuff, but always want to access archives of anthroplogists and political archives. I think if we emailed some authors of books you really dig, we could ask them the safest and best pracices for accessing online archives….what to do and not do. Haven’t done it yet. One person I trust might help is the author Diana West. I really like her interviews and much of her work comes from expoloring archives.

    • Amazing, but not surprising. Not after the past 5 years. So you never did get the password? In what way will they endeavor (specifically HOW) to determine that you are on the up and up? How bizarre.

      • HOW? I am traceable. And I was stupid to not think about it and registered connected to a searched article which listed the search names. Weird, though, because I looked at the form and decided not to put incognito stuff because some sense told me I would be ‘verified’. I thought none of my disguises would work but of course, little ole me would be up and and up, right?

    • MOTUS is very informative. As I was reading the articles i came across this photo and it made me scream: WHAT ARE THEY DOING? Funny, how TV weathermen can be standing outside reporting the daily weather and fail to mention what is going on above their heads in broad daylight.

      One morning at a shopping mall when the sky was full of trails just like those in the photo I polled people in the parking lot: What’s going on up there? Most people responded: They are contrails from planes going to the airport.
      A few others offered that its a phenomenal happening due to global warming.

      Its weather manipulation called S R M.

  30. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yB3n9fu-rM&feature=player_embedded#t=325s Maybe you’ve seen this, but do you realize who and what he’s talking about when asked what will he do if they come after him…..and he says they could pay off the triads. He said it so nonchalantly…..This guy knows a ton, a Ton….he’s not some barely educated guy. He’s made out to be some pion with security clearance….there’s definately more to this. He’s right..”turn key tyranny”

    • Yes, a truly amazing and brilliant person with a general equivalency diploma.

      I heard the exact same story from LTC Terrance Lakin.
