    Putin Deepens Ties with Chavez
    Orange County Register, Saturday April 3, 2010

    Caracas, Venezuela
    Russia offered to help Venezuela set up its own space industry, including a satellite launch site, as Prime Minister Vladimir Putin made his first visit Friday.

    President Hugo Chavez announced the offer by Russia hours before Putin arrived, saying officials would discuss the possibility of setting up a “satellite launcher and a factory.”

    The two countries are also discussing weapons deals, he said on television.

    Chavez’s government has already bought more than $4 billion in Russian weapons since 2005.

    • Yesterday Tom, my other half, brought this article to me, cut out of the newspaper, saying it’s time for us to say goodbye and go, to get in our boat and sail away.

  3. Come sail away. Come sail away . . .

    Please don’t leave us behind, Sleuth! Where can we catch the boat? 🙂

    Very scary to think of that insane Marxist with a space program and even possibly nukes. EMPs? Then again, maybe we don’t have to worry because our very own Marxist is one of his BFFs.

    Thanks for adding the Eye in the Sky song. Fits well.

    Here’s something by Steyn, who says it better than most:

    Whatever happened to honesty and integrity?

    Sad to see these guys brought so very low by their “historically” first POTUS.

    Russia and Venezuela call for a multi-polar world based on international law, not military strength. Speaking at a news conference after talks with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in Caracas, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said the expansion of military cooperation between Russia and Venezuela should cause no concerns since the annual defense expenditure of all nations, if put together, would still fail to meet the US figures. Russia and Venezuela have signed an impressive package of agreements on cooperation in aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, energy, education, transport and agriculture. The Russian companies are to pay 1 billion dollars for participation in the development of Hunin-6 oil field in the basin of the Orinoco River. Russia’s Avtovaz will supply Venezuela with more than two thousand cars and will build a car manufacturing plant in the country. President Chavez said Venezuela could build a nuclear power plant with the support of Russia. In Caracas Prime Minister Putin also held talks with President Evo Morales of Bolivia on bilateral trade and economic ties.

    See picture…they look like such good friends!

      Russia Moving Fast Before ‘Arms Control’ with U.S.
      By Jane Jamison

      The New York Times says that President Obama’s nuclear arms reduction agreement, to be signed within a few days, will significantly alter U.S. defense policy to “substantially narrow the conditions under which nuclear weapons could be used, even in self-defense.”

      Is anyone in the Obama administration paying any attention to Vladimir Putin?

      The Russian prime minister has just returned from his first-ever trip to Venezuela, with bear hugs for dictator-“presidente” Hugo Chávez.

      Russia and Venezuela signed no fewer than 31 agreements in twelve hours. Russia has already sold Chávez $4 billion in military armaments, and now he has signed on for at least $5 billion more.

      RTT NEWS:

      The relationship between Moscow and Caracas has strengthened in recent years, with Venezuela buying military equipments worth $4 billion from Russia, including Sukhoi jet fighters, helicopters, tanks and assault rifles, since 2005.

      During his latest visit to Venezuela, Putin had personally delivered four Russian Mi-17 helicopters President Chavez, the last of a batch of 38 military helicopters the South American country purchased from Russia in 2006.

      Besides weapons, Venezuela wants nuclear power (“just for domestic purposes,” of course). Sadly, due to NASA budget cuts under Obama, it appears that Venezuela may have astronauts before America does in the future. Russia needs oil, and Putin came back with a $20-billion contract to partner with Venezuela in the Orinoco belt. Vladimir and Hugo. It’s all good.

      Reuters:

      We are not going to build the atomic bomb but we will develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. We have to prepare for the post-petroleum era,” Chavez said on Thursday.

      While Putin was in Venezuela, China was taking delivery of weapons from Russia on Friday.

      Russia has delivered 15 batteries of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to China, Interfax news agency reported, under a contract analysts said could be worth as much as $2.25 billion.

      China is a major buyer of Russian weapons, and the two countries say they are trying to forge a strategic partnership, though senior Russian officials are privately concerned about an increasingly assertive China.


      Russia has been conducting quite a business by selling the same S-300 “Favorit” (“the world’s most powerful and efficient air defense system”) to many countries hostile to the U.S. and Israel: Syria, India, Algeria, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Saudi Arabia. Russia is also well underway with even more advanced versions, the S-400 and S-500 series, the latter of which can repel attacks in space. The systems began marketing on YouTube videos and news releases dated in late February of this year.

      A nagging concern is the fact that Russia signed a deal in 2005 to deliver anti-aircraft, anti-missile S-300s to Iran…with delivery originally set for 2009. It is not clear if they ever were delivered. Why don’t we know?

      Obviously, this has presented a huge security concern to Israel.

      Haaretz News:

      The S-300 is considered to be one of the most advanced air defense systems in the world, and its capabilities allow it to intercept aircraft flying 30,000 meters up, from 150 kilometers away.

      Netanyahu’s government began stepping up its pressure on Putin not to go forward with the arms deliveries to Iran last summer. While Russia was taking meetings with the Israelis, Putin also said that his country’s economic crisis makes the lucrative armaments business very attractive.

      A Russian ship, which may have been delivering S-300s to Iran last August, mysteriously “disappeared” between Finland and Algeria. It is believed that the ship was destroyed by the Israeli Mossad security service, which was acting on a tip. There is speculation that the arms deal was brokered with Iran by rogue Russian military “black marketeers” rather than with the Russian government.

      Heritage Foundation’s Dr. Ariel Cohen warned last year that the shipments to Iran must be thwarted:

      Although the sale of the S-300 to Iran is not prohibited, such a deal would be a game changer in the Middle East. Tehran could threaten U.S. and allied troops’ aerial assets in Afghanistan and Iraq if Iran were to deploy the system along its borders. Furthermore, it would boost the defense of Iran’s Bushehr reactor, which Russia has built. Finally, Tehran could also use S-300s to protect its Natanz uranium enrichment plant, Arak heavy water plant, and other components of its sprawling nuclear and missile complex.

      A nuclear-armed Iran would be a threat to the region as Iran uses its nuclear arsenal to foster its hegemony in the Persian Gulf and beyond and would likely trigger a regional nuclear arms race. Israel, Turkey, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia would not sit idly while Tehran is building its nuclear arsenal.

      In mid-February this year, after another eyeball-to-eyeball session with Putin in Moscow, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that there was an agreement to hold off on the S-300 deliveries to Iran…for now.

      The Russians, however say that the delay is due only to “technical difficulties.” It wasn’t made clear when those “difficulties” might be cleared up and the shipments might proceed.

      It may not make a whit of difference. While Obama and Secretary of State Clinton dither over sanctions and partnering countries, Iran sneers at the lack of foreign policy fortitude and races to a finish line of its own making.

      It appears that while Vladimir Putin is allowing himself “official deniability” of any deal to directly arm Iran, the technology has nonetheless somehow made its way to Tehran. Just a few days ago, Free Republic’s sources quoted Iranian military officials who say they have developed their own “indigenous” versions of the S-300.

      Investor’s Business Daily now calls Secretary of State Clinton the “Bull in the China Shop Diplomat.” She seems overly preoccupied with micro-managing Israel’s apartment-building plans and picking fights with Canada over abortion health care policy, while ignoring such elephants in the room as Iran building nuclear weapons and Russia arming America’s enemies.

      The Wall Street Journal opines that “Obama Seems Unserious about a Nuclear Iran.” If the Obama administration has accepted the inevitability of nuclear weapons in the hands of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, why would it cringe at Iran also being militarily able to demolish the Israeli fighter jets which come to destroy the nukes?

      Take it a step further, and what assurance does Israel have at all anymore that the United States of Barack Obama will defend her if the worst comes from Iran?

      Former Mayor of New York Ed Koch, a Democrat and a Jew who supported Barack Obama’s campaign, recently wrote an editorial in an Israeli newspaper, saying “The Trust is Gone.”

      Humpty Dumpty has been broken and the absolute trust needed between allies is no longer there. How sad it is for the supporters of Israel who put their trust in President Obama.

      Vladmir Putin has already proven once to Israel that he cannot be trusted. Kim Zigfeld wrote in American Thinker of Russia’s criss-cross hypocrisies of human rights violations, terrorism, and military aggression, while selling weapons of mass destruction to every enemy of this country.

      In the meantime, Iran’s nuclear negotiator has just come back from a meeting on “energy” with China. China still refuses to join the U.S. in sanctions against Iran.

      While Russians and Iranians are taking intercontinental flights cementing deals with our enemies, President Obama is rolling Easter eggs and playing baseball. Still feeling a headwind from passage of the health care bill, no doubt.

      Obama is scheduled April 8 to sign a treaty with Russian president Medvedev to reduce nuclear weapons of the two countries “by 30 percent.”

      Barack Obama presented his tepidly-received nuclear disarmament plan exactly one year ago today in Prague. It would appear, confirming our worst fears, that the only place in the “world with no nuclear weapons” will be the United States if we stay on the bobble-headed foreign policy course of Barack Obama.

  5. Theological fact

    For decades pundits have been saying that the New Orleans Saints were so bad at playing football that hell would freeze over before the Saints would ever win The Super Bowl.

    On Sunday, February 7, 2010 The Saints won the Super Bowl.

    On that same Sunday Washington D.C. was paralyzed under several feet of snow and the Government was shut down.

    This, then, firmly establishes the exact geographical position of hell.

    • wow!! And I have not even received “one” census form yet!! Guess my
      Indian/white/german/irish race doe’s not matter and doe’s not need to be counted!!!

    • Double counting is the first thing I thought of when I read that. Can you believe that our newspaper reported that “whites” have traditionally been overcounted. Now can you explain how that happened? So now double counting “select” households will make up for it? Census reparations. 🙂

      Today, someone wrote the newspaper to explain why some people didn’t send the form back right away. The form says that the count is supposed to be of people in the household on April 1. So lots of people took that literally and waited until April 1 to count who was in the household on that day. The census bureau should have waiting long enough for the mail to arrive after April 1, before sending out duplicates.

      What’s nowhere to be found is an explanation of exactlly how the census bureau is going to make sure that no duplicates are counted. One would think that an unbiased, thinking reporter would ask THAT question.

  6. Putin has been very busy making his rounds! Heard O will be in Prague tomorrow!!

    • Obama’s Russian Disaster
      By Kim Zigfeld, April 05, 2010

      The point of President Barack Obama’s much-ballyhooed “reset” of relations with Vladimir Putin’s Russia was simple: Get Russia to stop supporting American enemies and use its influence to reduce the threat of nuclear terror being rained down on the West by the world’s rogue regimes.

      Obama was ready, willing, and able to betray Russian human rights activists by selling American values down the river in order do get this deal done, and he promptly gave them the cold shoulder. He was even willing to totally ignore Russia’s horrific problem of race murder and its invasion of tiny Georgia for imperial conquest.

      Last week, Obama learned the wisdom of Ronald Reagan’s famous advice on Russia: “Trust, but verify.”

      Despite Obama’s best efforts, including a unilateral withdrawal of the Bush anti-ballistic missile plan for Eastern Europe, Putin traveled to Venezuela, shook hands with a beaming Hugo Chávez, and announced (video here) that Russia would provide Chávez with both a nuclear energy capacity and a rocket program, the same as it has done for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Iran.

      In the last five years, Putin has sold Chávez over $4 billion in weapons, from attack helicopters to assault rifles. In a truly unhinged statement, Putin claimed: “Our goal is to make the world more democratic.” By this, Putin meant that undermining American interests and jeopardizing American national security will enhance the power and prestige of his KGB regime in Moscow, something he would like to assert will make the world a better place to live in.

      Chávez was less subtle: “The Yankee empire doesn’t want us to have one single little plane. We don’t really care what Washington thinks.”

      The same result occurred in regard to Iran. Ignoring Obama, Russia announced that it would go forward not only with finalizing a major nuclear power plant for Iran, but also with providing the rogue state with a missile defense system to ward off an Israeli attack.

      So the net result is this: Obama has forsaken the cause of freedom and democracy in Russia and signaled that former Soviet space is now Russia’s playground. In return, he has received the makings of a new Cuban missile crisis in our hemisphere and all-out war in the Middle East.

      When Obama announced the “reset” with Russia, he sent Hillary Clinton to Moscow with an actual prop “reset” button that used the wrong Russian word. It was a sign of things to come. Bad things.

      Make no mistake: The Putin regime stands to benefit enormously from turmoil in Venezuela and Iran. Such disturbances, in addition to undermining American power, serve to unnerve world oil markets, driving up prices. Russia, a leading oil exporter, profits directly from such price increases.

      And the hypocrisy coming out of Russia is as breathtaking as the provocation. A wave of terror attacks has swept Russia in recent days. First, two subway stations in downtown Moscow were hit by suicide bombers, causing three dozen fatalities. Then there was another in the city of Kizlyar, in the southern province of Dagestan, with a dozen more killed. Finally, a freight train was blown off the rails, again in Dagestan. Russia has responded, amazingly, by calling for solidarity from Western countries in a united struggle against Islamic fanatics.

      But only weeks ago, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, likened by many analysts to a tarantula, invited Khaled Meshaal, leader of the Hamas terrorist organization, to Moscow. That Russians would have the audacity, while supporting Hamas, Iran, and Venezuela, to ask for Western solidarity on terror bespeaks the same sort of unhinged, oblivious nonsense spewed forth from the Russian government in Soviet times.

    • Leza,
      Renee,

      The blogger “”deadenders” posted the link to the article at “Uppity Woman’s” blog, commenting that they’ve been polling Mary. Guess I was just two plus years ahead of the crowd: instantaneous recognition of Absolute Evil. Nothing has happened since to change my mind. To the contrary.

    • Only a European could possible write this sentence (from the article Mary linked):

      “And 67 per cent of Republicans who responded believed Obama was a socialist, despite his central leanings.”

      Central leanings? Where would they place Hitler or Stalin or Lenin or Che or Chavez on THAT continuum?

    • Hey, Mary. Nice to hear from you. Hope you had a good Easter.

  9. RED ALERT: U.S. Consulate Attacked In Pakistan
    Stratfor Today » April 5, 2010 | 0922 GMT

    UPDATE: One attacker was able to blow up in the U.S. Consulate premises, AAJ TV reported April 5. The front side of the U.S. Consulate has been totally destroyed. Reports of seven or eight security personnel in the Consulate are dead. The Consulate’s communication system is down.

    Three explosions, two rocket attacks and subsequent gunfire have been reported in the near vicinity of the U.S. consulate in Peshawar, Pakistan, on April 5. The attack occurred early afternoon local time when the consulate would have been full of both American and local employees. The death toll is reported at 36 but is expected to rise.

    There are no assessments yet of the damage that the consulate building has sustained, but reports indicate that the explosions led to the collapse of other, adjacent buildings. Pakistani soldiers are also reported to be engaging militants in gunfire, indicating that militants are actively engaged in an attack near the area – possibly with the intention of breaching the U.S. consulate.

    Many U.S. diplomatic missions (including the one in Peshawar) have a number of built in security features, such as a perimeter wall, ample stand-off distance between the buildings and the wall, reinforced concrete structure and windows and marines stationed inside to ward off attacks. While militant activity in the tribal belt of northwest Pakistan has led to regular attacks against targets of the Pakistani state, today’s assault against the consulate is an extremely rare direct attack on a U.S. target.

    STRATFOR is monitoring the situation for more details.

  10. Apropos of nothing: I saw Obama on TV the other day and it looks like he has another scar zig-zagging across the back of his head. Very odd.

    • Wasn’t the picture posted here at WE on the right side?? While being interviewed by Bret Baier last month, they showed him from his left side many times…and the same scar ? was there!?

  11. Isn’t this what the Ruskies used to do? Declare political opponents crazy and institutionalize them?

    http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2010/04/lt-col-lakin-responds-to-army-dont.html

    Easy way out, Obama. Just release all the documents. Case closed. Full disclosure. Transparency as promised.

  12. Have you been following that story at Post and Email News about how MO slipped in a speech to the gay faction at the Dem convention and referred to Kenya as her husband’s “home country?” Now P&E News reports that they’re scrubbing transcripts as they’ve appeared on the Web since 2008. Looks to be true.

    But what’s interesting is that it also looks as if P&E News is offline. Won’t come up. Anybody else have a problem viewing their page? Under attack by obots? I saw this story also on AOL, so maybe too much traffic going there? Or maybe they’re under attack. The latter would be my guess. But anything ‘s possible. Odd, however.

    This morning, Glenn Beck said there’s a concerted effort in the media to label him as crazy, unhinged, in need of psychiatric care. I read a recent column by Peggy Noonan in the WSJ wherein SHE called Glenn Beck “insane.” That was particularly disturbing because Noonan supposedly is conservative.

    All of this reminds me of the attempt to imply that Lt. Col. Lakin is also in need of psychiatric or neurological care. As I said, just as the Ruskie COMMIES used to do. Everything new is old.

    MARXISTS.

  13. Internet Explorer says the host of the P&E News may be “down.” Now why would that be? The story hit comments in AOL, Hannity, Free Republic (a story), and Apuzzo’s blog, among others. My guess is the buzz is making the powers that be nervous, so they attack the web host, until the buzz dies down. Anything to keep people from educating themselves. Just because we’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get us. 🙂

  14. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/apr/05/rights-panel-justice-stonewalling-on-panthers/

    Story about one of our pet peeves: Why did they let the Black Panthers who intimidated voters off the hook? Now Holder won’t release documents. More transparency.

  15. Another baseball season, another “weenie” pitch:

    http://www.politico.com/politico44/perm/0410/play_ball_716e9eab-fd1c-4f23-a4f6-2663250f8b04.html

    Sounds like he was booed.

  16. Note: They weren’t just booing the Chi-Sox hat. They booed before he put the hat on. Just sayin’.

  17. btw, eggs were pretty; cake was delish! Hope y’all had a great day yesterday.

  18. NEW YORK | When FaithHouse Manhattan has its twice-monthly interfaith gatherings, the guest list is a carnival of religious belief and creed.

    An Islamic Sufi dervish greets you at the door, but the program director, an Episcopalian, makes the announcements. A rabbi, a female Muslim and a Seventh-day Adventist share leadership of the meeting.

    The night’s program at FaithHouse, in a posh office just off Fifth Avenue, was the Jewish holiday of Purim. Oranges, nuts, apricots and hamentaschen, a Jewish holiday pastry, were offered as snacks. Participants put on costumes to act out the biblical story of Esther.

    “People who have a hunger for religious experience can have a taste of it here,” said Samir Selmanovic, the Adventist co-leader. Born in Croatia to a Muslim father and a Catholic mother, he helped found FaithHouse 18 months ago. Then he wrote a book, “It’s All About God: Reflections of a Muslim Atheist Jewish Christian,” on the plethora of religions that Americans are increasingly sampling.

    FaithHouse is probably the only multireligious church in the country, but its jumble of faiths and practices is becoming less unusual in today’s religious marketplace.

    Easter Sunday – Obama’s Connection to the Washington Park Assassination

    In the small town of Washington Park just outside of St. Louis Mo. on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River corruption and murder are a way of life. Last night the mayor of this sleepy town was assassinated by forces much greater than one could imagine. Stealing right out of the city’s coffers was common for the officials of this town. Now in bankruptcy Washington Park is about to be thrust into the national and international scene. What do President Obama and the now deceased Mayor John Thornton have in common? Why was this corrupt mayor executed with two bullets to the head by a professional hit man? It’s Easter Sunday and the smoke from the assassin’s gun is still in the air. FBI and state law enforcement officers are investigating this tragedy of modern day America. They’ve rounded up the usual suspects, which is typical for Illinois, but rest assured the real killer is out there and the thugs that placed the order are still on the hunt.“All politics is local,” once said by Tip O’Neil, and so it is. The corruption in the state of Illinois is so rampant it reaches from the heart of Chicago to the small town of Washington Park. Make no mistake any Politician from the state of Illinois is corrupt or has corrupt ties. This includes our illustrious President Obama. Ever since the election of Barrack Obama more violent acts have been taken against government officials in this embattled state. Why? Possibly because of the many connections to the President and his staff in the White House. You see any embarrassment to the President with his ever lowering ratings among the American people would be disastrous. His ratings are now on the edge of a cliff that all political experts know there is no coming back from.To date the assassins have done a good job of covering up the windy trail to the Oval Office. But how long can they keep it up. They’ll slip up one of these days and when they do Obama’s house of cards will tumble. In the past I have reported on this blog of many strange and unusual deaths happening to high level government officials in the state. It’s very obvious that the officials involved are more frightened of the hit man than federal prosecutors, for many have either killed themselves or have gone to jail without a peep. This cover-up can’t last forever.

    • Sleuth, You are freaking me out. This last name in my digs..

      Thornton…this is very troubling…

      • John Thornton, we’ll have to dig.

        • News

          • AOne, Sounds like a Soprano’s episode with babada boom strip club and all ! Note the previous Mayor’s name…Just another Jackson….hummm…New Mayor had some info it looks like…bet the FBI will sic em !
            snip-

            “Every time I turn around, they’re hitting us with suits,” Mayor John Thornton said. “And on top of the lawyers, we got people stealing from us and the feds raiding.”

            Indeed, federal officials have raided the village hall for records from time to
            time. One of Thornton’s predecessors as mayor, Sylvester Jackson, was sentenced in the mid-1990s to 37 months in federal prison for taking bribes of up to $2,000 a week to protect gambling.

    • Been watching this story. Nothing to add, unfortunately, except that all those small towns around East St. Louis are corrupt. Shot execution style, certainly. That’s about all anyone knows. Similar to some other recent “hits”. Whether associated in any way with Obama remains to be seen. If the feds took away boxes of documents, anything may be in those documents that someone wants kept hidden.

      Glenn Beck just played on the radio the clip of MO calling Kenya his “home country.” Veddy interesting. Ramping it up, huh?

      Beck’s revealing the people behind the boycotts of his show: Van Jones, George Soros, Andy Stern, among others. In any case, check out the lists of companies who are boycotting Beck and boycott those companies in return. Tit for tat. I hate to send you to this link, but it has the list:
      http://stopbeck.com/dropped-sponsors/

      Especially interesting is Apple, which the site claims has removed all advertising from FOX. Hit them all in THEIR pocketbooks, for participating in this totally UNAMERICAN censorship campaign. I’m going to write the companies and tell them why I’m not going to do business with them anymore.

      Reward these companies by giving them your business:

      I’m going to thank them for not giving in to political pressure. IF they can stop Glenn Beck, then that will be a very scary message to the rest of us. Keep in mind that the Marxists are currently working on total control (censorship) of the Internet.

      Even if you disagree with Beck, you MUST stand up for EVERY American’s right to free speech. Hate what he says, if you want, but defend to the death his right (his GOD-GIVEN right) to say it.

      • Beck thinks the MO video came out to make us look like racists. Alinsky tactic by the 0bots. May be true. Interesting timing, considering that she made the speech a few years ago.

        • You know, Glenn Beck has almost convinced me that the obots ramp up stuff about the COLB because they can use it to make us look racist and crazy. I believe it. Why DID that video come out now? I did a little research and the woman who posted the most-watched version on YouTube is a 9/11 truther who started her blog, apparently, just days before Obama was sworn in. So one must indeed be wary. However, just because it redounds to Obama’s purposes if he can make “birthers” look nutty and racist, that doesn’t mean that he WAS born in Hawaii. It just goes to show what a master he is of twisting everything to his benefit. And we know why he’s such a master at that, right, Mary?

  21. umm, isent Obama supposed to be half white? Wouldent that be considered “mixed race”? Obama claims to be Black, African American, or Negro on the U.S. Census form –

    It’s official: Obama is black
    MSNBC.com ^ | April 3, 2010 | Staff

    Posted on Saturday, April 03, 2010 6:40:21 AM by fightinJAG

    He may be the world’s foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American.

    The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says “Black, African Am., or Negro.”

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2485962/posts

    • Leza, Must be midlife crisis…Like the rest of us, he is wondering who he is maybe ? Maybe he needs a brain scan…

    • Given the controversy about his birth circumstances: Is he lying (yet again) or is he telling the truth (for a change)?

      WHO is he? That’s something we’ve been asking for several years now. Release the documents and all will be revealed. Full disclosure. Transparency, as promised.

      He’s okay with denying half of his heritage? Does that mean that it’s okay for us to lie on census forms, too? If the government goes after anyone who writes “American” or “Human” in the race box, then Obama’s example provides a perfect defense. If he can lie, so can everyone else.

      He’s publicly claimed, in two books, that his mother was white. Therefore, he has to be lying, if he doesn’t own up to that half of his racial heritage.

      All whites who voted for him need to notice what he thinks of his mother and her people. Has he no pride whatsoever in his ancestors? All of them?

      Have you seen that TV show “Who Do You Think You Are”? Maybe they need to do a program on Obama. Then report back and tell all of us, using DOCUMENTATION, exactly WHO he is.

  22. I’m more than a little late to this Easter thread, but here’s my 2 cents:

    Given what Obama has said about salvation, it’s pretty clear that his faith is the Socialist Gospel, not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    • Hello, redpill !!! Sure have missed you stopping by and commenting! How are things going at Wallbuilders?

      You are sure busy doing our Father’s work in His Kingdom! Thank you soooo very much! We are all very blessed to know you! God Bless you and yours!

      • Thank you for your kind words, Ga Peach.

        I have been very busy, and I’m sorry that I haven’t been around much here, but I’m very pleased to see this site thriving. I’m glad that a good portion of the community that developed at Texas Darlin’s blog has continued to interact here (as well as at Dr. Kate’s).

        By the way, I don’t work for Wallbuilders, but I fully support what they are doing, and we were blessed to have David Barton come speak to our organization.

        • You’re welcome. I check your site often and always leave feeling more encouraged with your resounding faith and the ability to debate with unbelievers/attackers with the Grace of God.

          I really enjoyed David Barton on Beck today! I have heard him speak several times over the last couple of years. Just wish he would not talk so fast, but he gets sooo excited just talking about what is obviously his life’s work and passion. Fox needs to give him a 2-hour special on our history!!!!

  23. There’s some good news on the anti-Marxist front:

    http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-20001825-38.html

    A court in DC unanimously stopped the FCC from imposing Net Neutrality regulations, saying that they don’t have the power or authority to do so.

    This is great news. A finger in the dike. This was a special project of Robert McChesney, the Marxist Obama advisor who wants to eliminate capitalist speech from all media. The oxymoronically named group that he founded, Free Press, promoted this Internet regulation. Their website says,

    “Free Press believes that media reform is crucial not just for creating better news and entertainment, but to advancing every issue you care about. A vibrant, diverse and independent media is the cornerstone of a healthy democracy.”

    Got that? CREATING “better” news. Not just giving you the unbiased, unvarnished truth.

    NO, they want to “create” what they decide is “better” news. In other words, tell you what they want you to think that you know. And keep you from knowing other news that, in their opinion, is not “better” news (for them). Think: Chairman Mao’s China.

    They want to create “better” entertainment, too. So who will be the decider on what’s “better” entertainment? More biased, preachy, toady, “progressive” drama like, say, Law and Order? Most certainly, the Glenn Beck show won’t be part of this “better” entertainment.

    Just in time, Beck says he’ll do an expose on McChesney TODAY! On his TV show. The one that you would never be able to choose to see in a McChesney universe. It’s too “dangerous”.

    Beck’s ideas are “dangerous” you see, because they might just make you think and might just give you the dangerous “notion” that you’re a free individual, with God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which includes free speech and (gasp! capitalist) property. I digress.

    Moving on, they want to advance “every issue you care about.” Wanna bet that doesn’t include issues like SMALLER government, reducing debt and the deficit, free speech, original intent of the Founders, making sure that all [s]elected individuals meet eligibility criteria, making sure all so-called representatives honor their oath to the CONSTITUTION, etc.?

    No, they will decide what issues you care about. See how that works? The Nanny Pelosi/Obama state knows what’s best for you. Sit down, shut up, take your medicine. Got it?

    No need to go into their definitions of “diverse” or “independent” or “vibrant”. It all depends upon what the meaning of those words are, in the upside-down, through-the-looking-glass, Orwellian world in which these MARXISTS cum progressives live.

    More on McChesney:
    http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2227

    Gee, another treatise that ought to have been a post. Sorry! My bad, once again.

  24. What McChesney wants is the Internet as a public utility. Divest capitalists of their ownership. Make the Web a socialist tool for ensuring the future of their ideal Marxist regime. Here’s a good illuminative article about him:

    http://techliberation.com/2009/08/10/free-press-robert-mcchesney-the-struggle-for-media-marxism/

    Shine the light on these Marxists. They pretend that all they want to do is give everyone “access” to the wonders of the Internet. A worthy goal, except everybody already has access, via public libraries, paid for by everyone’s tax dollars. It’s a lie and a sham.

    Once again, they use “fairness” and “access” to promote their Marxist schemes. They will use anything that SOUNDS GOOD on its face, to promote the Marxist takeover of our country.

    It sounds good, but it’s not and they don’t mean it. It’s a scam, an excuse, to get everybody on board, because who’s going to argue against “fairness?” Alinsky misdirection. Lies. False and tricksy lies.

    MARXISTS! Every one.

  25. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/04/06/republicans-slam-obama-nominee-omissions-record/

    We’re supposed to believe as an elite BERKELEY law professor, wannabe 9th Circuit Court of Appeals judge, this guy didn’t keep an updated list (aka curriculum vitae) of his every publication. It was simply a mistake to exclude from Congressional review everything controversial that he wrote. Sure. Did YOU ever know a big-shot professor who didn’t keep his curriculum vitae up to date? These guys LIVE via their publications. Their salaries and tenure depend upon publications. They really do think We the People are stupid.

  26. Wasn’t there an episode of Star Trek where Commander Data went berserk? His programming went awry and he talked and acted crazy? That came to mind whilst I watched the 17 1/2 minute, rambling, disjointed, zombie-like response that Obama gave to the woman who merely asked if this is a good time to raise taxes.

    What say you? On his meds or off his meds? Or was it something else?

    Have to mention that I saw that scar again yesterday. The one going up the side of his head. Noticed another on the back. What’s the deal? Did something go wrong with the ITOTUS? (Implanted teleprompter of the United States)

  27. I didn’t know where to put this,

    It’s Lame Cherry:

    A little nuke here, a little nuke there
    Depravity: Moral perversion; impairment of virtue and moral principles.

    A corrupt or depraved or degenerate act or practice.

    It is a moral perversion what Barack Hussein Obama is now about in his college days nuclear policy he dreamed up as a gay sex toy.

    Mr. Obama instead of utilizing the terror of nuclear weapons to keep any nation from ever attacking American cities, has now initiated a policy where Russia and China can use chemical, biological, internet and nano attacks upon these United States, and Mr. Obama will frown from his teleprompter and protest.

    Mr. Obama has segregated nuclear policy in noting that “bad guys” like Persians and North Koreans will have special nuclear response for………well, as North Korea has declared war on America and the Islamocommunists of Persia have been making covert war on America for years, one does not quite know what the Obama trip wire would be for first use, but then these two nations were Barack Obama buddy states for two years in Obama writing love letters and sending US appeasement to them like Bill Clinton, so what was a lover on the Obama brothel one day is now the whore about to be dropped off in a back alley suffering from a cocaine nuclear overdose.

    Mr. Obama does not comprehend that just like all American must be treated equally, that all potential enemies of America must be treated equally in nuclear response. It is that knowledge which has kept all nations from using not only nuclear weapons, but biological and chemical weapons overtly.
    Mr. Obama has now taken this deterrence off the official US policy. In doing this, Obama policy has now increased the use weapons of mass destruction against these United States.

    Russia will now benefit from using biological weapons via proxy as much as China with nano technology which they have been investing in greatly to bring down America.

    This is typical of Marxist Saul Alinksy doctrine in having good and bad terrorists, as Obama has had in entering America on a Muslim tribal warfare footing for over a year.
    The push for this from Mr. Obama at this juncture also points to the fact that al Qaeda with Iranian, Russian, North Korean or Chicom backing is in the process of implementing an overt biological or chemical attack upon Americans.
    As this blog alone noted the various “food poisoning” attacks occurring in America for the past years in killing humans and pets, has developed a counter biological agent being sprayed on grain cereals and pet foods.

    This agent has been noted to have two distinct side effects: Bleeding of the rectal area and twitching.
    (Note Mr. Obama was indeed twitching in 2008 and as his condition has not progressed with brain malfunction, it is highly possible that certain grains like rolled oats which Mr. Obama was ingesting were sprayed with this biological counter agent, to which he was being affected like other Americans and pets were in twitches and seizures.)

    This deniability has now been taken off the table. It is now a progressive mode of WMD warfare now which has proven acceptable by Mr. Obama as a nuclear armed Iran and as Bill Clinton deemed it acceptable that 100 Americans could be tortured and murdered by terrorists and America would absorb that loss without war.
    This of course brought the massive coverup of the downing of TWA Flight 800 and would bring about thousands dead on 9 11.

    Policy as this is not based in reality and it is beyond cartoonish or naive. Mr. Obama has now exposed these United States to thee worst form of mass death, because one of the “Crazy Reagan” protocols was the United States traditionally kept it’s adversaries off guard in not being specific in what would trigger a nuclear response. In not defining the situation as Mr. Obama has just done, it was tactically superior in keeping any nation from acting out in any means.

    President Bush further broadened the scope according to the original doctrines developed here in using nuclear weapons in various tactical and first response to keep terrorists off guard and from nuclear attacks upon America.

    The situation has now changed in Mr. Obama overtly has informed enemies exact US policy concerning nuclear weapons which is the worst breach of national security, since Bill Clinton turned over American codes to Chicom blackmailers.

    It is depraved to degenerate a policy which exposes Americans to nuclear, biological, chemical and nano by informing enemies there are different categories of reckoning and which acts of murderous rampage will be allowed.

    The reasons nations are vague about war policy is to keep other nations guessing. Mr. Obama has taken the guess work out in how to attack America.

    This is now gone beyond naive, Marxist, stupid or inept. This is criminally irresponsible and Democrats in Congress if they honestly have any loyalty to their constituents in large cities, must muzzle Mr. Obama, as it is not Reagan blue regions who are going to be the target of this Obama policy but as this blog warned, the mass Democrat population centers.

    How Robert Gates, Leon Panetta or James Jones can allow this without protest resignations is beyond deduction.

    • Communist Led “Peace Movement” to Target US Military Budget(promise to help Obama disarm America)

      Key WikiBlog ^ | April 6,2010 | unknown

      (snip)

      “LeBlanc also wants the “peace movement” to help President Obama overcome the opposition to achieving his goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.

      The nuclear disarmament movement in the US and around the world is beginning to rebuild, premised on the idea that if President Obama is able to challenge those who want to maintain nuclear superiority, it is going to take a grassroots movement like the one in the 1980s that compelled a nuclear disarmament agreement and moved the US government to sign treaties. Now at this point the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which has been languishing in the Senate for decades since the Clinton administration and has never been brought to a vote again for ratification after it was defeated. As for the START treaty (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty) with Russia, which expired in December and is continuing to be negotiated, if that bill is brought before the Senate at this point, just like many other pieces of legislation the Obama Administration supports, it would be doomed.

        Obama’s List
        By J.R. Dunn

        Over the past year and a half, we’ve seen much in the way of speculation of what Obama is really up to, what his true agenda might be behind all the soothing and meretricious rhetoric. It was quite clear that “Obama” was a construct, a carefully manufactured image, as all politicians are to one extent or another. But Obama was an extreme example — all image, most of it having little or no connection with any discernible substance. The gap between what he said and what he would then proceed to do was wide and glaring. This obvious and undeniable discontinuity is the major factor feeding all the conspiracy theories — the ones featuring George Soros as puppet-master, the claims of adherence to Islam, and so forth. If only it were that simple! The past few weeks have clearly revealed that Obama is something at the same time entirely more commonplace while also being more obnoxious.

        Obama is an example of that peculiar American contribution to the long line of political deviancy: the romantic leftist, a combination of undergrad Marxism, New Deal activism, Great Society idealism, and late ’60s dementia. In fulfillment of this role, he is going down the list of left-wing daydreams, wish-fulfillment fantasies, and unfinished business, and doing his damnedest to see them made reality. No more than that, and certainly no less.

        http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/04/obamas_list.html

  28. Student Researchers: Erin Galbraith, Natalie Dale, and Kerry Headley
    Faculty Evaluator: Mickey Huff
    Sonoma State University

    The Obama and McCain campaigns jointly negotiated a detailed secret contract dictating the terms of the 2008 debates. This included who got to participate, what topics were to be raised, and the structure of the debate formats.

    Since 1987, a private corporation created by and for the Republican and Democratic parties called the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has sponsored the US Presidential debates and implemented debate contracts. In order to shield the major party candidates from criticism, CPD has refused to release debate contract information to the public.

    In 1986, the Republican and Democratic National Committees ratified an agreement “to take over the presidential debates” from the nonpartisan League of Women Voters. Fifteen months later, then-Republican Party chair Frank Fahrenkopf and then-Democratic Party chair Paul Kirk incorporated the Commission on Presidential Debates. Fahrenkopf and Kirk still co-chair the Commission on Presidential Debates, and every four years it implements and conceals contracts jointly drafted by the Republican and Democratic nominees.

    Before the CPD’s formation, the League of Women Voters served as a genuinely nonpartisan presidential debate sponsor from 1976 until 1984, ensuring the inclusion of popular independent candidates and prohibiting major party campaigns from manipulating debate formats.

    In 1980, the League invited independent candidate John B. Anderson to participate in a presidential debate, even though President Jimmy Carter adamantly refused to debate him. 


    Four years later, when the Ronald Reagan and Walter Mondale campaigns vetoed sixty-eight proposed panelists in order to eliminate difficult questions, the League publicly lambasted the candidates for “totally abusing the process.” The ensuing public outcry persuaded the candidates to accept the League’s panelists for the next debate.

    

 And in 1988, when the George Bush and Michael Dukakis campaigns drafted the first secret debate contract—a “Memorandum of Understanding” that dictated who got to participate, who would ask the questions, even the heights of the podiums—the League declined to implement it. Instead, the League issued a blistering press release claiming, “the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter.”

    The major parties, however, did not want a sponsor that limited their candidates’ control. Consequently, the CPD was created to step in.
    Since the CPD took control of the presidential debates in 1988, the debates have been primarily funded by corporate contributions. Multinational corporations with regulatory interests before Congress have donated millions of dollars in contributions to the CPD, and debate sites have become corporate carnivals, where sponsoring companies market their products, services, and political agendas. Tobacco giant Phillip Morris was a major sponsor in 1992 and 1996. The major contributor, Anheuser-Busch, has sponsored presidential debates in its hometown of St. Louis in 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008.

    That the CPD has been able to raise millions of dollars in corporate contributions is not surprising. Frank Fahrenkopf and Paul Kirk, who co-chair and control the CPD, are registered lobbyists for multinational corporations. Kirk has collected $120,000 for lobbying on behalf of Hoechst Marion Roussel, a German pharmaceutical company. Fahrenkopf earns approximately $900,000 a year as the chief lobbyist for the nation’s $54 billion gambling industry. As president of the American Gaming Association, Fahrenkopf directs enormous financial contributions to major party candidates and saturates the media with “expert” testimony extolling gambling’s “many benefits.” “We’re not going to apologize for trying to influence political elections,” said Fahrenkopf.

    “These are the guys,” author George Farah points out, “deciding who gets to participate in the most important political forums in the United States of America.”

    He adds, “Kirk and Fahrenkopf’s lobbying practices demonstrate a willingness to protect corporate interests at the expense of voters’ interests. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that the co-chairs of the CPD are willing to protect major party interests at the expense of voters’ interests.”

    Sorry this was so long, there is a little more to read at link below. It is my opinion, that WE NEED TO DEMAND that the LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS return to controlling the “Commission on Presidential Debates”!!!

    If not 2010..then 2012….MUST be the “Year of the Women” !!!! Let’s just do it !!!

    I have not heard of this site, but they seem to be disliked by both the left and right, so……
    Check Sandcastles 4 for much more info!

    http://www.projectcensored.org/top-stories/category/two-thousand-and-ten-book

    # 7, 20, and 22 were very interesting !! Didn’t check others yet.

    As with all our info, read and use your own personal wisdom to determine what is true or not. Of course, at all times, remember….we now live in an upside down world !!!

    • Wise to take that site with a huge boulder of salt. Some stories the students believe should have gotten better play in the lamestream media:

      Hope Fades for End of the American Empire under Obama
      http://dailycensored.com/2009/12/30/hope-fades-for-end-of-the-american-empire-under-obama/

      HOPE for the end of the American “Empire”!? This is a story that student so-called journalists think needs more readers.

      Another story:
      ADDICTIONS THERAPY IN POLITICAL PRACTICE: THE DETACHMENT OF OBAMA
      http://dailycensored.com/2010/02/19/addictions-therapy-in-political-practice-the-detachment-of-obama/

      Now, one would think this might be a good story, pointing out the possibility that That One may never really have given up snorting coke and perhaps is still addicted, which explains his passivity. NOT! It’s the Republicans who need addiction therapy.

      Isn’t it special that our tax dollars go to teach such Marxist drivel? How about teaching the CONSTITUTION?

      From the Wiki link that Peachy provided:
      “According to the editor of the Pasadena Weekly, Project Censored suffers from a ‘perceived extreme left-leaning bent that editors . . . have assumed over the years in selecting, writing, and publishing its stories. . . . more than anything it has been the Project’s perceived long leftward lean that has done the most damage to its overall credibility.’ Although the group never explicitly takes a political stance, a majority of the stories Project Censored highlights have a leftist political slant, criticizing big business, economic inequality, damage to the environment, and the Pentagon, and misdeeds of conservative politicians, among other progressive issues; at least 20 of the ‘Top 25 Censored Stories of 2007’ could be classified in one of these categories.”

      Of course, there’s evidence of the usual scrubbing. Here are links to stories that might have been interesting, had they not been removed. So much for opposing censorship.:

      • Thanks so much, Miri and Bridgette ! I did not check into LWV before posting ! Very good info to know!!

        I still stand by my statement….

        If not 2010, then 2012…needs to be the Year of the Women !!! It will take some very strong, and intelligent conservative women to straighten out this huge mess we find ourselves in !!!

    • League of Women Voters – IS NOT NON-PARTISAN – Read their website. They are a democrat/progressive group that hides their true agenda and has gotten away with calling themselves non-partisan. Perhaps they were at one time. No longer. I noted this when Obama was running for office, and they totally supported him and his policies. Just to be sure, I checked again. These are a few of their paragraphs describing their projects.

      Social Policy ..Secure equal rights and equal opportunity for all. Promote social and economic justice and the health and safety of all Americans.

      Global climate change is one of the most serious threats to the environment, health and economy of our nation. Recent scientific studies show that global warming is already causing environmental changes that will have significant global economic and social impacts. The League believes that now is the time to act on global climate change.

      Money in Elections – Fair and clean elections, determined by the votes of American citizens, should be at the center of our democracy. In the wake of Citizens United vs. FEC (2010), which threw out vital protections against corporate and union spending in elections, the League’s Money and Elections work takes even greater precedence…

      In 2000, the League worked in support of the ABM Treaty and in opposition to deployment of a planned national missile defense system. The need for this work continues to this day.

      From celebrating health care reform to tackling climate change – catch up on League news ….
      Supporters of Healthcare bill, climate change, arms control, League says house procedures on health care vote “OK.”

      • Thanks, Bridgette. Just like all those lefty groups that claim to be non-partisan. When they say it, it’s almost a red flag proving that they’re partisan shills. I have always thought that it’s unAmerican to exclude ANY candidate from the debates. Let all Americans HEAR all candidates. Why censor them and their ideas? If they’re so nutty, We the People can and will decide that for ourselves.

        Did y’all happen to see Glenn Beck’s TV show yesterday? It was priceless. He showed O’s parents and grandparents and explained how, to a one, they were Marxists or Communists. Also his mentors Uncle Frank and “Reverend” Wright, among all his current MARXIST advisors.

        • Yes, great show yesterday….”they” cannot deny anything Beck has said so far. Today’s was equally great in showing the connections to the boycott from the top of the ladder !

          Anticipating Friday’s show when he will have some young folks speaking their mind !!!

  29. Profile: Who are Wikileaks?

    Whistle-blowing website Wikileaks has released a video which it claims shows the killing of civilians by the US military in Baghdad in 2007.

    It is the latest in a long list of “leaks” published by the secretive site, which has established a reputation for publishing sensitive material from governments and other high-profile organisations.

    In October 2009, for example, it posted a list of names and addresses of people it claimed belonged to the British National Party (BNP). The BNP said the list was “malicious forgery”.

    During the 2008 US elections, it published screenshots of the e-mail inbox, pictures and address book of vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

    Other controversial documents hosted on the site include a copy of the Standard Operating Procedures for Camp Delta, a document that detailed restrictions placed on prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

    IMO, there are some things that should NOT be published…. most definitely anything that would absolutely harm our national security !!

  30. Mongolia on Verge of Mineral Boom !

    In a tasteful black and chrome interior, there are rails of perfectly placed turquoise jackets. There are shoes and belts, and black beaded tops with a price tag of over $700 (£460). This is the brand new Emporio Armani store off Sukhbaatar Square, Ulan Bator, Mongolia.

    In sub-zero temperatures, it is hard to believe you could find a place warm enough to wear these clothes in Mongolia. And who will shop here when a third of the population live below the poverty line?

    But the high-end Western brands that are opening up in the Mongolian capital are looking to the future, and what promises to be a lucrative market.

    Mongolia is about to experience an unprecedented boom. By 2013, the mining of some of the world’s largest unexploited mineral deposits will begin to herald a transformation of the economy.

    In 2008, the GDP of this former Soviet satellite state was $5.3bn. In the next decade, that could triple.

    “That is realistic,” says D Zorigt, Mongolia’s minister for mineral resources and energy. “These are world-class mines.”

    Mineral-rich

    Mongolia has virtually every desirable mineral resource. Gold, copper, coal, uranium, iron ore and oil all lie below the earth of this huge landlocked nation.

    Mongolia! Whoda thunk ?!

  31. “the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter.”

    That understatement by the League of Women Voters deserves repetition. Imagine that: political parties trying to defraud We the People.
