  1. How many Gates can we have at one time?
    Andrew Romanoff…in Colorado. Pattern is finally noticed. Will it help Blago?

    Sestak-gate: White House Offered Romanoff Job, Too
    26 May 2010

    On Sept. 27, 2009, the Denver Post reported that the Obama administration offered Senate candidate Romanoff a position if he canceled plans to run for the Democratic nomination against incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet.

    The paper said the job offer, which specified particular jobs, reportedly was delivered by Jim Messina, Obama’s deputy chief of staff. One position the Post cited was a job at USAID, the foreign aid agency. [Note USAID is a connection to Shorebank, Joyce etc…]

    The White House denied that Romanoff had been offered a job.

  2. AZ today.. Tea partiers vs the pro illegals. Just heard 10,000 partiers and 50,000 illegals expected at multiple protests. Who is doing the estimations that make the illegals outnumber the ones who believe in LEGAL immigrants? Will they both remain peaceful? Will the police be picking up illegals..? Now that would be a raid!

    Police Chief J.W. Harris Sahuarita, AZ…is on FOX . I think he is one of the Progressives that went to talk to Holder. That “progressive” information isn’t given to the public. Hey, he will enforce the law if it is passed. Good to hear from a LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER. To bad we don’t have any enforcement officials in Washington, D.C.

    Illegals cost AZ $1.3 Billon per year. I wonder what is included in that dollar amount; education, medical costs, court costs, food stamps, jailing ..now add National Guard salaries.
    AZ is speaking for the nation by passing their law!

    Thank Obama for allowing this to get out of hand. What a guy. As president he can’t protest he says. He stood for Illegals not Citizens! Why, because he is one! He feels their pain.

    He is president if you haven’t heard it from his own mouth..he doesn’t want anyone to forget it. One can’t buy or spin respect ..it is earned. Perhaps he acts “stupidly” because he doesn’t have the experience to back up the words he has to read. As far as being a great orator..he has debunked that one himself.

    • Obama doesn’t have time to meet with AZ Gov. Brewer when she goes to Washington! Other governors should take notice.

      Gov. Brewer you are in good company with Israel’s prime minister and the Dali Lama and all other people that the slime decides to insult. If only you were a basketball player then you might get a viewing with his highness.

  3. Go Gerald!
    Court accused of covering for Obama in ‘Walpingate ‘ Judge appears to be stonewalling scandal linked to White House
    May 28, 2010 Snips

    Former Inspector General Gerald Walpin, whose dismissal by President Obama last year has been challenged by congressmen as potentially illegal political retaliation, is now stepping up the battle to get his job back, accusing the judicial system of stalling his case and, thus, doing the White House a convenient favor.

    Court documents filed last week accuse U.S. District Court Judge Richard Roberts of failing to act within federally mandated time requirements and “doing nothing at all” to move the case forward.

    Meanwhile, “Walpingate” fades from the public memory, and the White House has moved on to appoint Walpin’s replacement, as though the scandal were resolved. The advantage the White House gains by delays in the case hasn’t been lost on a recent Washington Times editorial, which calls for a halt to nomination of Jonathan Hatfield to Walpin’s old position: “[Judge Roberts] has played into the hands of the Obama administration, which has used every possible stalling tactic to keep the case buried and its merits unexamined,” the editorial contends. “The goal, which is highly improper, seems to be to render Mr. Walpin’s case moot by putting Mr. Hatfield in his place.”
    The editorial insists the integrity of the offices of inspector general is even more important for “an administration increasingly known for outlandish stonewalling of Congress and the press and for its Justice Department’s refusal to investigate any purported administration wrongdoing.”

    Walpin had sued the CNCS in July of last year, seeking reinstatement. Dozens of procedural steps and court filings later, however, the judge has refused to take any action on the case, save granting the defense an extension and denying a preliminary injunction request that would have required the CNCS to supply affidavits and documents in its defense.

    Now Walpin is petitioning a higher court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, to issue a writ of mandamus directing Judge Roberts to either promptly resolve the outstanding motions in the lawsuit or transfer the case to a judge who can.

    The Court of Appeals has issued an order for all sides in the Walpin lawsuit to submit response to Walpin’s filing within the next seven days.

  4. Head of Marxist-led institute joins Obama team
    Soros-funded group urges more government control of media
    May 28, 2010

    NEW YORK – The policy director at a George Soros-funded, Marxist-founded organization calling itself Free Press has just taken a key State Department position. Free Press Policy Director Ben Scott has been named a policy adviser for innovation at the State Department. Free Press is a well-known advocate of government intervention in the Internet.

    Scott authored a book, “The Future of Media,” which was edited by the founder of Free Press, Robert W. McChesney. McChesney is an avowed Marxist who has recommended capitalism be dismantled. He is a professor at the University of Illinois and former editor of the Marxist journal Monthly Review.
    In February 2009, McChesney wrote in a column, “In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles.”
    The board of Free Press has included a slew of radicals, such as Obama’s former “green jobs” czar Van Jones, who resigned after it was exposed he founded a communist organization.

    Last week, WND reported Free Press published a study advocating the development of a “world class” government-run media system in the U.S. Now the group is pushing a new organization, StopBigMedia.com, that advocates the downfall of “big media” and the creation of new media to “promote local ownership, amplify minority voices, support quality journalism, and bring local artists, voices and viewpoints to the airwaves.”

    Free Press has ties to other members of the Obama administration. Obama’s “Internet czar,” Susan P. Crawford, spoke at a Free Press’s May 14, 2009, “Changing Media” summit in Washington, D.C. Crawford’s pet project, OneWebNow, lists as “participating organizations” Free Press and the controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.

    Crawford and Kevin Werbach, who co-directed the Obama transition team’s Federal Communications Commission Review team, are advisory board members at Public Knowledge, a George Soros-funded public interest group. A Public Knowledge advisory board member is Timothy Wu, who is also chairman of the board for Free Press. Like Public Knowledge, Free Press also has received funds from Soros’ Open Society Institute.

    • I believe it is McChesney that was one of Obama’s mentors. I think it is on a video where McChesney is teaching a course and says that he taught Obama…taught Marxism to him. Will try to locate it.

      Another friggin’ Soros operation…Free Press which means the opposite!

      An appointment to the STATE Dept under Hillary. Add Posner, Asst. Sec. of State, the Marxist with this new guy. Who vetted either one of these people?

    • Chesney, Scott, Jones, Crawford…all on approved “It’s all Relative” status as usual.

      Skip, skip, skip to my Lu my darling…
      Funny huh ?

  5. Is Hillary poised to soon be president?

    Itsa Lame Cherry article, but I like this guy best when he proposes totally alternative interpretations of mindless mainstream media (mmm) stories:

    Mrs. President Hillary Hamrod Clinton

    How stupid do you have to be B. Hussein Obama in sending out Bill Clinton to bribe Joe Sestak?

    This is Hillarious in what the Clinton’s have set up in Hillary got Bill to be humiliated in sending him off to North Korea, but payback is a bitch, because the Clinton’s hung around the White House as “trusted” comrades, just long enough for a felony to occur.

    Rahm Emanuel, two M’s if you adore the lovely Michelle Malkin, in Rahm Emmanuel is busy chattering to David Axelrod, Val-erie Jarrett and B. Hussein Obama. In the meeting, it was decided that Bill Clinton would be the conduit to offer the bribe as Emmanuel learned his lesson in the Blagojevich affair.

    So off goes Bill to perform a Larry Sinclair on Joe Sestak, to which Sestak gets the job offered to him for Sec. of Navy.
    Sestak goes wild in exposing this and on the Memorial Day weekend document drop, the White House tries to cover this all up as a non event.

    After…….

    Obama meets Bill Clinton and coordinates the response.

    After……

    Obama promises FOX that a coordinated response was coming, exactly at the time that Sean Hannity stated it would come to be buried on a holiday weekend.

    After……..

    Obama swoops down to the Gulf to look hands on, after Obama has a press conference spinning all of this.

    What was an original felony in a bribe violating federal law, now has become a Watergate gushing fountain of felonies as the White House has now engaged in a cover up, tampering with witnesses in Joe Sestak and Bill Clinton, and, the higher crimes of obstruction of justice by Eric Holder and Robert Bauer.

    I can tell you this right now that the person in the catbird seat is Hillary Clinton. Bill Clinton literally is now part of a cover up. By keeping silent, he has either extorted the Vice Presidential slot for Hillary in 2012 or literally she will become President, with the caveat that she will pardon the criminal Obama mob if Clinton talks.

    See Clinton can claim, “Well hell, I am just an Arkansas boy and when the White House Attorney in Bauer says Obama can send me off to bribe folks, I got to believe that bright boy Obama knows the legalities as he is a Harvard lawyer”.

    Yes Bill and Hilllary Clinton now hold the hangman’s noose in this scenario and are twirling it like Scarlet does her fan waiting for Obama to be gone with the wind.

    This is exactly Watergate in what took down Richard Nixon. Amusing in this is Patrick Fitzgerald tried to nab an innocent George W. Bush in such a coup, but Bush’s people weren’t crooks.
    Instead, it was Obama not only engaged in the Blagojevich bribes with Emmanuel. Then it was Tim Johnson selling his vote to Obama so Sippy Cup Johnson, (his son) could accept the bribe of US Attorney. Then it was Ass. Chief of Staff Jim Messina offering bribes to Senate candidate Romanoff out west who has named names, declared the what and were, and is another felony on Obama.

    Then this comes to this Joe Sestak who just finished off his entire career and is now a felon, because he just lied in assisting Obama to cover up the felony bribe he was offered.

    There are absolutely no doubts in any of this. Felonies were committed and Bill Clinton knew this was a felony. He can now parlay this into Hillary ending up as Vice President, if not President.
    The Clinton’s are supreme at this, and Bill Clinton in intrigue is not going to have his legacy further ruined for that “bright boy “as Bill refers to Obama.
    The Clintons are already getting something out of this cover up and it is not a hot tub for Hillary’s office.

    Any contact, promise, favor, reward or benefit in any political office is a bribe covered by the US codes. It does not have to be Obama or Emanuel. It can be conduit Clinton. It does not have to be a paid job. It simply is a reward and a spun non paying job is a reward.
    This is a felony crime by Barack Hussein Obama.

    This can and will build to the resignation of Obama, whereby the Clinton team will immediately take the White House.
    Joe Sestak is now a liar, is in a felony cover up and has just ruined his political career.

    Bill Clinton can testify to gain immunity, but the criminals are indeed Barack Hussein Obama, Rahm Emanuel, Robert Bauer and Eric Holder. There is no doubt in any of this.

    What does Aaron Burr Biden know and his conduct in these felony events?

    Just as Hillary Clinton is without doubt positioned in this Obama coup to be President of these United States, all because B. Hussein Obama is the biggest idiot in thinking he could handle the Clintons.

    As Sean Hannity speculated, there is more to this in another shoe to drop. David Axelrod stated there is “no evidence” of the crime, but now we know that there are phone records, staff meeting records and notes which backed all of this Sestak, Johnson and Romanoff impeachable crimes.

    David Axelrod knows exactly what went on here, and his staff knows the complete issue. All of these people need to be put under oath before a Grand Jury.

    This is Obama’s Watergate. No doubts about any of this in any Obama, shape or form.

    agtG

    • Hummmm…so amazing ! That is what the car bump was about…
      From above especially:

      This can and will build to the resignation of Obama, whereby the Clinton team will immediately take the White House.

      Just amazing !

  6. A Hero’s Salute

    Henry County, Georgia welcomes home a fallen Hero- Staff Sgt. John Beale.

    I know we’ve seen this video before. It is 12+ minutes long-and worth watching. Have Kleenex handy. It’s a reminder that Memorial Day is about much more than outdoor BarBQs and the kickoff to summer. It’s inspiring to see that there are Americans who haven’t forgotten that.

      Hahhahahhahahahhaha !
      Sorry Sleuth, cannot help it ! LOL !

    • When will California get the news? What a riot! Should those LA city council members be sent copies? How about sending them to Pelosi and the other sanctuary cities that aren’t obeying State and Federal laws. How about if Governor Brewer makes a video about it! I’d say send copies to the WH and its groupies…but they have proven they can’t read.

    great news, Nees

  9. The oil well and the destruction of our country,

    I am going to write my own article, not quoting Lame Cherry,
    or Conservative Monster, or Repubx, or anypme.

    When I realized the platform had sunk I felt something was very wrong.
    At the time I thought it was an Obamanation to get his ridiculous cap n trade bill throgh. Without a disaster, cap n trade is dead.

    After about two weeks I felt worried. The amount of oil was large. I know the oil will eventuallly move beyond the Gulf, enter the loop current, flow up the East coast of America and then on the Gulf Stream to Europe.
    At the back of my mind I wondered if this damage could be big enough to poison the oceans.

    I thought all these efforts by BP were and still are designed to fail, but fail and buy time for more failure, in an analogous way to giving Iran time to build nuclear weapons.

    Soon hurricanes will enter the Gulf. That will accomplish two things. It will give OBPama
    an excusse for ceasing operations. Secondly a hurricane is a vast suction engine. All the toxicity that is in the Sea will be sucked up at the hurricane center and blasted high into the sky to be spread as death rain into the freshwater lakes and rivers of the USA east of the Rockis.

    We are looking at the very least at the economic collapse of half our country, and maybe worse than that.

    I have just one question.

    How long before the military does the only sensible thing and that is to use a nuclear explosion to melt the seabed and force it downwards with enough force to seal the well.

    No BP engineer would have removed the drilling mud from the new well, yet that was the order.
    That caused the methane blowout. We won’t find how that order came to be passed. It was as insane as ordering a nuclear power plant to remove all of its nuetron moderating rods.
    No engineer would comply.

    What happened? I am sure it was intentional,
    and I no longer think this was a political act, this was an act of genocide to come.

    • It has to be tough being an engineer and understanding and knowing what really is happening.

      I don’t understand how having a nuclear explosion would seal it rather than make the well hole larger.

      I pray what you have written doesn’t happen. That sized castastrophe is hard to fathom.

      • it is 5000 feet down to the sea floor but the drilled hole goes downanother 10000 feet so a high temperature explosion will only make molten maybe 100 feet of ocean floor and at the same time the pressure shock wave will force this molten rock, tens of times heavier than so called drilling mud downwards collapsing the drill hole and sealing it.

        But listen, the new oBPama plan, slice off the riser pipe, thread it and cap it, was the very first suggestion on that Lame Cherry blog.

        So surreal.

    • DaveM, I believe totally planned also.My response to nuke is this:

      Then we can have radioactive people, land, oceans and goop…Even better death plan…This idea is insane. It is already genocide. Look up Corexit 9500. Very toxic. Once it evaporates in the sky, then it rains, the rain will become poison.

        • From link above:

          It has been confirmed that the dispersal agent being used by BP and the government is Corexit 9500, a solvent originally developed by Exxon and now manufactured by Nalco Holding Company of Naperville, IL. Their stock took a sharp jump, up more than 18% at its highest point of the day today, after it was announced that their product is the one being used in the Gulf. Nalco’s CEO, Erik Frywald, expressed their commitment to “helping the people and environment of the Gulf Coast recover as rapidly as possible.” It may be that the best way to help would be to remove their product from the fray. Take a look at some of the facts about Corexit 9500:

          A report written by Anita George-Ares and James R. Clark for Exxon Biomedical Sciences, Inc. entitled “Acute Aquatic Toxicity of Three Corexit Products: An Overview” states that “Corexit 9500, Corexit 9527, and Corexit 9580 have moderate toxicity to early life stages of fish, crustaceans and mollusks (LC50 or EC50 – 1.6 to 100 ppm*). It goes on to say that decreasing water temperatures in lab tests showed decreased toxicity, a lowered uptake of the dispersant. Unfortunately, we’re going to be seeing an increase in temperatures, not a decrease. Amongst the other caveats is that the study is species-specific, that other animals may be more severely affected, silver-sided fish amongst them.

          Oil is toxic at 11 ppm while Corexit 9500 is toxic at only 2.61 ppm; Corexit 9500 is four times as toxic as the oil itself. Sure, a lot less of it is being introduced, but that’s still a flawed logical perspective, because it’s not a “lesser of two evils” scenario. BOTH are going into the ocean water.

      • What an ingenious way to get rid of the infidels.

  10. It was supposed to say
    great news, News!!!!

    • I didn’t even notice AOne!! Eyes skipped right over.

      All those California “sanctuary cities” are breaking the law and so are all those police departments that don’t enforce it. Police are supposed to enforce laws not ignore them.

          Costa Mesa: Illegal Immigrants Not Welcome Here, Costa Mesa Mayor Wants Tougher Immigration Policy (4/29/2010)

          COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) ― Costa Mesa has declared itself a “Rule of Law” city in a swipe at such illegal immigrant sanctuary cities as San Francisco.

          The City Council voted 4-0 on Tuesday to approve the resolution designed to make it clear immigration laws will be enforced and people in the country illegally are not welcome.

          It has been condemned by the Orange County branch of the Anti-Defamation League.

          Mayor Allan Mansoor, who proposed the “Rule of Law” resolution, says more needs to be done to crack down on illegal immigrants.

          The mayor says he is concerned with cities calling themselves illegal immigrant sanctuary cities.

          A federal agent is assigned to the Costa Mesa jail to check the immigration status of those arrested

        • Get active in your city government by going to city council meetings. Give your city representatives your input on immigration. You can make a difference!

  11. They’re saying that the Sestak job story is completely bogus because, for one, Sestak couldn’t have accepted that job on the president’s advisory board for intelligence. It specifically excludes anybody who already is on the government payroll, such as a congressman. So we’re supposed to believe that Clinton, who used to be POTUS and had to appoint people to those very same boards, didn’t know this already? Besides which, even those presidential advisors use OUR money, given to them via an act of Congress (appropriations), so it’s still a crime.

    • I think that they have set themselves up this time… boots are on their necks! Bauer has been great working on those eligibility lawsuits..but it appears his newest Whitewashed Memo doesn’t have Standing!

Not real religion, just a filthy, fake form of religion. Disgusting.

  13. Great job all of you have been doing !!!

    Heard earlier that PM Netanyahu will be treated to a very high profile dinner Tuesday! Strange, huh? A month ago he was treated so badly and now (supposedly), he will be honored with respect!!!??? Guess who will be the next honoree after Tuesday? OK, now we get it!!

    Hope all of you have a wonderful, blessed Memorial Day. I admire each of you for your diligent work in our own patriotic sense of duty to find the truth and keep everyone aware of the latest happenings! We are all a small light in the darkness, but together we shine brightly!

    God Bless the great United States of America and may He wrap our brave troops in His protective arms.

    • I wish Netanyahu would have had a full calendar.

      Obama has lost the Jewish vote, so he is trying to make up for it. He needs to see a jump in his poll ratings. Plus he needs someone to see something “good” after not attending Memorial Day at Arlington.

      I’ve read Rahm had a welcoming reception in Israel fit for a traitor. Perhaps he was the one that suggested it might be a good idea to have the prime minister over for dinner.

      Why isthe PM going to walk into their lair once again. Perhaps the prime minister can have a glass of wine then excuse himself and say he is having dinner elsewhere. Let all of the WH classless set be humiliated and embarrassed for a change. I’d cheer.

  15. I just posted this over at drkates’ in response to my shock to Quantum Leap’s statement that “Hillary is for us”. I could be wrong, but don’t think so. I also reminded her of Hill’s statement where she expressed “great regret” that our great U.S.A. is NOT a signatory to the International Criminal Court. Can’t remember where I read that quote of her, but it stuck in my mind like cement!!! Check out the following quotes of her re: O’s mom and microfinance!!
    ~~~
    snip~~
    On education and social investment:

    “The president-elect supports a global education fund to bolster secular education around the world. I want to emphasize the importance to us of this bottom-up approach. The president-elect and I believe in this so strongly. Investing in our common humanity through social development is not marginal to our foreign policy but essential to the realization of our goals.”

    Clinton also stressed the importance of microfinance:

    “As a personal aside, I want to mention that President-elect Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was a pioneer in microfinance in Indonesia. In my own work on microfinance around the world, from Bangladesh to Chile to Vietnam to South Africa and many other countries, I’ve seen firsthand how small loans given to poor women to start businesses can raise standards of living and transform local economies. The president-elect’s mother had planned to attend a microfinance forum at the Beijing Women’s Conference in 1995 that I participated in. Unfortunately, she was very ill and couldn’t travel, and sadly passed away a few months later.

    “But I think it’s fair to say that her work in international development, the care and concern she showed for women and for poor people around the world, mattered greatly to her son, our president- elect. And I believe that it has certainly informed his views and his vision. We will be honored to carry on Ann Dunham’s work in the years ahead,” Clinton said.

    By Ron Kampeas · May 28, 2010

    WASHINGTON (JTA) — The athletes, the astronauts, the alternative music, the black rabbi, the white dress uniforms and, above all, the left-handed baseball giant: Welcome to Barack Obama’s Jewish America.

    The first-ever Jewish America Heritage Month celebration at the White House on Thursday underscored the Obama administration’s determination not to be locked into Washington’s conventional notions of Jewish leadership.

    President Obama did not exactly snub the usual suspects who have peopled similar events for decades. There was Lee Rosenberg, the president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and there was Alan Solow, the chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Both also happen to have been major fund-raisers for Obama’s campaign, as were several others among the 250 or so in attendance.

    But the image that the White House sought to convey was one of Jewish America not necessarily bound to the alphabet soup of the Jewish organizational world and of pro-Israelism. Instead, Obama presented an array of Jewish heroes and celebrities who pronouncedly defied Jewish stereotypes. In addition to the major givers, the entrepreneurs and the communal leaders, there were also sports heroes — including Sandy Koufax — veterans, non-profit innovators, journalists, actors and organizers.

    Obama referred also to “the countless names that we don’t know — the teachers, the small business owners, the doctors and nurses, the people who seek only to live honestly and faithfully and to give their children more than they had.”

    The reception was in the works for months, and planning predated the tensions between Israel and the United States precipitated in early March when Israel announced a major housing start in eastern Jerusalem during an official visit there by Vice President Joe Biden, who also was at Thursday’s reception.

    Still, the White House’s message was timely: Obama would not be second-guessed by his pro-Israel critics on his friendship to the Jewish community and to Israel. The reception included a traditional reference to the “unbreakable” Israel-U.S. alliance dating back to within minutes of Israel’s establishment.

    Jewish values, Obama said, “helped lead America to recognize and support Israel as a Jewish homeland and a beacon for democratic values — beginning mere minutes after its independence was declared. In fact, we have the original statement by President Harry Truman on display here today.”

    Obama also made it clear, however, that he sees the alliance as part of America’s strategy of outreach to the world.

    “My administration is renewing American leadership around the world — strengthening old alliances and forging new ones, defending universal values while ensuring that we uphold our values here at home,” he said. “In fact, it’s our common values that leads us to stand with allies and friends, including the State of Israel.”

    The dual message — closeness to Israel coupled with global outreach — has characterized the recent “charm offensive” launched by the White House in the wake of the recent tensions with Israel. Obama is hosting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next Tuesday, and the signs are that it will be a higher-profile reception than the thief-in-the-night encounter the two had when tensions were at their highest in March.

    But the president is also hosting Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on June 9, and in both cases Obama has made it clear that he wants to advance the “proximity” talks currently underway to direct Israeli-Palestinian talks.

    It’s a message that his administration is taking to Jewish audiences, and aggressively……

    • Planned out for years!! I had posted this (below) back on the –

      America’s Bloodless Coup d’Etat, Open Thread
      ————-

      In 1982, President Ronald Reagan issued National Security Directive 58 which empowered Robert McFarlane and Oliver North to use the National Security Council to secretly retrofit FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to manage the country during a national crisis.

      The 1984 “REX exercises” simulated civil unrest culminating in a national emergency with a contingency plan for the imprisonment of 400,000 people. REX 84 was so secretive that special metal security doors were installed on the FEMA building’s fifth floor, and even long-term officials of the Civil Defense Office were prohibited entry. The ostensible purpose of this exercise was to handle an influx of refugees created by a war in Central America, but a more realistic scenario was the detention of American citizens.

      STATE OF EMERGENCY

      Under “REX” the President could declare a state of emergency, empowering the head of FEMA to take control of the internal infrastructure of the United States and suspend the constitution.

      The President could invoke executive orders 11000 thru 11004 which would: 1- Draft all citizens into work forces under government supervision. 2- Empower the postmaster to register all men, women and children. 3- Seize all airports and aircraft. 4- Seize all housing and establish forced relocation of citizens.

  17. Some wishes do come true. Up above I said, I wished that Netanyahu would have a full calendar so he would cancel the lovely dinner with Obama, thus giving him an Israeli snub.

    He has cancelled because of problems occurring in Gaza. Ten are dead in a confrontation with Israel.

    No matter what the reason, he is going from Canada back to Israel and won’t be walking on that RED carpet.

  18. Building:
    Iran sends Hezbollah 2000 Scud Missiles based in Lebanon.
    Syrian crew training in Russia on S-300 anti-missile defense systems,
    Russia’s best.
    Turkey, under islamist leader Taceyp Erdogan, launches a terrorist flotailla towards Gaza. It fails but achieves a propaganda goal.
    OBPama threatens nuclear armed Pakistan with an attack.
    OBPama destroys a massive oil well in the Gulf.
    OBPama sends FIVE carrier battlegroups to be in place off Iran in the Persian Gulf for August.
    Soros and the whole hidden crew attack the Euro. World markets no longer trust the stability of Europe.

    Something is set to happen this summer.

    the patdollard website no longer exists.

  20. This warning from theconservativemonster dot com

    Iranian Guards general assassinated in Damascus – French sources

    Expect things to start moving fast…

    Like I have been saying the past few weeks…this is all being done to draw Israel into war, so eventual attacks on the USA can seem justified to the world after Israel unleashes on Syria and Iran .

    The timing is perfect, since the USA has a Marxist, Muslim stooge in the White House. Our enemies were obviously waiting for Bush to leave. Plus they also would love to disrupt the Nov. 2010 elections to prevent the Republicans from taking back any power from the communists.

    Keep a close eye on the Mexican border folks, you heard it HERE

    The death of Khalil Sultan, a high-ranking general of the IRGC’s al Qods external terror branch, at his home in the exclusive Damascus district of Al Mezzeh Sunday, May 16 is now revealed by French intelligence and Syrian exile sources in Paris to have been assassination by an unknown hand.

    The authorities in Damascus said at the time that the general, whom they described as a rich Syrian businessman, sales agent for the Iranian Kordo automobile manufacturers, was killed in the course of a robbery.
    In fact, according to debkafile’s intelligence sources, Sultan ran Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ covert operations in Damascus and Beirut under deep cover. The gang which burst into his luxury villa and gunned him down with automatic rifles removed only documents and laptops, but did not touch valuables, cash or gold.

  21. I believe that God spoke when the thunder, lightening and rain poured upon those gathered (paid) to listen to Obama in Illinois at the Abraham Lincoln Cemetery. Standing under an umbrella, he asked everyone to return to their cars to wait out the downpour …looking like he was concerned for their safety. In reality, the teleprompter doesn’t work in rain..it short circuits! Imagine what it might have said if he continued. (My analysis). They didn’t return with a tarp to cover Obama, so no services took place.

    Luckily, no veterans buried there had to turn over in their graves listening to Obama.

    His inappropriateness and lack of respect of not attending the ceremony in Arlington Cemetery is highlighted. After all, the 1,000th troop of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan died last week, yet he chose not to be there.

    Obama’s priorities are his golf games, his staged photo ops, and his needed vacations from all his hard work. “His” being emphasized on purpose.

  22. A MUST READ !!!!

    Don’t let this serious crisis go to waste!!!

    ~~snip~~
    39 days and counting – the serious crisis is about to reach and surpass biblical proportions.

    Turning on to C-SPAN, the vitriol from Capitol Hill is striking. Congressman on both sides of the isle are denouncing the $75 million liability cap on clean-up operations as a paltry sum, comparing the figure to the over $90 million single-day profits of the oil giant and shaking their heads in exasperation.

    Officials at BP have claimed responsibility and have spent several million dollars above and beyond their liability cap in a frantic drive to stem the flow of oil and garner a touch of PR sympathy as Senators and Congressmen wag their fingers at the BP off-shore drilling safety practices, saying that the company will be forced to pay all legitimate claims of loss by the people and businesses of the Gulf.

    Environmental protection advocates are beside themselves on how to respond. No one knows exactly how many millions of gallons of oil have leaked into the Gulf. Live cameras are filming the debacle as the memory of eleven lost souls falls to the sludge.

    So, what possible good can come of this “serious crisis” for the Obama administration? What kind of things can they do now that they couldn’t do before?

    Enter the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea
    On Thursday, Obama took questions in his first press conference since July, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to the Brookings Institute about the release of the 2010 National Security Strategy (NSS).

    Major news outlets on Thursday evening were mum on the 52-page report’s release as pundits analyzed the ins and outs of Obama’s nebulous answers. The NSS report was old news. The previous day, the Obama administration’s chief counterterrorism adviser John Brennan had already let the cat out of the bag: the United States is no longer fighting a delusional war against the tactic of terror, we were now fighting the concrete target of al Qaeda and its affiliates. When combined with Brennan’s commentary, Secretary Clinton’s steadfast focus on a “Smart Power” agenda providing “whole of government” solutions, utilizing the full breadth of the three pillars of U.S. statecraft – Defense, Diplomacy and Development – promised a Muslim engagement-oriented NSS report filled with talk of transnational partnerships and pragmatic assessments.

    Moreover, the majority of the press corps, locked into a deadline, didn’t have a chance to do any more than skim the NSS, much less have time to work-up a serious analysis. It was almost a certainty that no one would realize the importance of the phrase ““International Order,” which was repeated ad nauseum throughout the document, until long after the Memorial Day weekend.

    American leadership, according to the text of the NSS, was challenged by the proposition of assuming a primary role in shaping the international order of an increasingly globalized horizon. Sustaining “broad cooperation on key global challenges” in the international order, by page 50, included working with partners to “safeguard the sea, air, and space domains from those who would deny access or use them for hostile purposes.” And then, a new sort of boom is lowered: “As one key effort in the sea domain, for example, we will pursue ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOST).”

    Did the media focus on President Obama’s handling of the Gulf slick cover over critical analysis of the national sovereignty issues at play in the 2010 NSS’s endorsement of LOST?

    Pillars of the Alliance of Civilizations – The Earth Charter
    By: Constance Cumbey
    January 10, 2007

    NewsWithViews.com

    A primary source for what was to become known as the Alliance of Civilizations, was the “Earth Charter Initiative.” Some chroniclers trace it back only as far as the 1987 Brundtland Commission The Earth Charter Declaration contains language startlingly reminiscent of its salvation-based religion baiting precedents, Humanist Manifesto and the Humanist Manifesto II. One prominent Earth Charter proponent, Maurice Strong, was quoted saying that the Earth Charter would become as important as the Ten Commandments. Conflicting histories have been given and it appears that it was in progress, per Maurice Strong, much earlier than the 1987 Brundtland Commission.

    “The whole question of an Earth Charter was in fact on the UN Agenda at Rio. We didn’t quite make it. We did make some progress. At the Stockholm Conference, which was the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972, governments agreed to a historic declaration, which moved the world community towards what we now call an Earth Charter. Then, at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, as the Secretary General of that conference, I challenged governments to produce an Earth Charter.[1]

    This obvious phase of implementation of what former UN Assistant Secretary General Robert Muller and Maurice Strong alike would acknowledge was “The Plan” was being developed on Muller’s Costa Rican turf in 1995.[2] For me 1995 was an interesting year. It was then I discovered the existence of another interesting “eminent personality,” in the form of one Dr. Javier Solana. He also has had enormous input in the “Alliance of Civilizations.”

Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow is a leading advocate of reinstating the free speech destroying “Fairness Doctrine” for talk radio. “Whether it’s called the Fairness Standard, whether it’s called something else,” she told journalist Bill Press, “I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves.”

      OK Folks the race is on – Do we prove the USURPER is ineligible BEFORE THE USURPER illegally arrests the 14 Governors?

  27. They’re reporting that Tipper and Al Gore are separating after 40 years! What’s up with that? What does Tipper know and when did she know it and better yet, when will she start singing like a canary? Soon, I hope.

    • Da sex partee w/ O maybe ?

    • Save the global warming scam assets..if there are lawsuits, then they could lose all of it. If they divorce, she gets the cash and property keeping it in the separated family. (They just purchased an ocean side home. Who gets this house?). Then after lawsuits end, miraculously, they can’t live without each other. Didn’t the NY King of Ponzi try that with his wife, put assets in her name..but he didn’t divorce her. So they took her property too.

    • This is a believe it or not. One of the Gore’s best friends blames Pres. Bush for the demise of the Gore’s marriage. She said it is because Pres. Bush won the 2000 election!

  28. “Even an Obamite will find the Truth if they keep ranting around long enough”

    Lame Cherry

    Keith Olbermann in making excuses for Obama on the Obama Gulf Gusher, might not appreciate being right in the Gulf Oil Pumper is not Obama’s Katrina in the least.
    But…….before this is over, Obama and Keith Olbermann are going to long for the day that this was Obama’s Katrina, as this is going to be much worse.

    This is going to be Obama’s Summer of ’79.

    For those who are aware of this 1979 reference, I will not need to explain it, but for those who are salad in years and Obama in delusion like Olbermann, 1979 was the Ted Koppel dead count for Jimmy Carter in every day from 1978 on, the puppy press marked DAY 483 OF THE IRANIAN HOSTAGE CRISIS.

    This is Obama’s Iranian hostage crisis in the Gulf and this time it is Obama who is held hostage just like Jimmy Carter in the White House, castrated, ineffective, looking the fool he was and wandering around the Rose Garden playing with hisself.

    As I stated, Keith Olbermann is going to crave the day this was a Katrina event, as his is going to be a pollution summer of Obama’s managed crisis for his politics, which has now tar balled Obama in a slime which will never rub off.

    Obama put his DAY ONE on this, so this is his catastrophe. Obama stayed away for over a month, then when he thought BP was going to plug it, Obama showed up to take credit playing with tar balls.
    The problem though is BP in pumping in the clay mud actually blew the pipe out more of the debris in it, and the jet stream coming out of the natural gas earth actually started spewing more natural pollution when Obama showed up taking credit for it.

    Obama owns this tar ball and this tar ball now owns him. Every day this oil well defies Obama is a day that Obama is defined as ineffective, weak, and defeated.
    Obama can meet with his panels and still the natural pollution flows and Obama looks like a talker doing nothing after he has given his best shot, and is revealed as the absolute failure he is.

    This is what Jimmy Carter faced. He in desperation tried to send in a raid and Americans died, and Iranians pissed on them.
    Obama has already sent in his raiders and he fled back to Chicago where Louis Farrakhan Mooselums ran him out of town chanting ISLAM, ISLAM, ISLAM!

    This is an exclusive of this blog. Some have thought themselves quite intelligent in marking this as Obama’s Katrina. This is not a chance Obama’s Katrina as this is a million times worse that Katrina, because Katrina was fixed in weeks and people were happy ending up in Houston and wouldn’t go home to New Orleans despotry.

    Obama is going to have months of this gusher of his, that was deliberately created by design, dithering and ineptness. He will rue the day that he did battle with Mother Earth, because Mother Earth is more powerful than any global warming delusional demagogue.

    This is Obama’s Summer of ’79. Long may this hostage crisis spew, because Obama is being Jimmy Carter, when if he had chosen an American as myself, this would have been capped and pumping all that fine gas and oil into American homes and vehicles.

    *It is possible to clamp a valve on this pipe, secure it, and then turn the valve off.

    *It is possible to vacuum sediment away from the submerged pipe, tap said pipe with a relief valve to funnel the resource to he surface for collection, and in the process shove an expansive cork into the pipe and allow the natural pressure to seal the gusher.

    *It is possible to thread a liner pipe inside the main pipe to seal it in order to seal the other main cavity flows of the original burst pipe.

    Summer of ’79, mark it hostage Obama

    So what’s with Obpama sending 5 US carrier battle groups to the Persian Gulf for August?

    Here’s a hint: He doesn’t giv a dam about Israel,

    His payback will be in the payback,
    for appearing to support Israel.

    What is going on with this story ? I heard a reverse of this story also.

    • That is the leftist viewpoint..from the very first sentence you can tell when it calls what Israel did by stopping the ships, criminal. Now this new ship is going to test Israel one more time. There has been a blockade on the area for several years. (2007?) Israel examines contents of the ships headed for Gaza to keep weapons out of the area. They put humanitarian aid on trucks and it is delivered to Gaza. Now this last ship wants to push the buttons hoping the international outcry will come down on their side against Israel.

      Hillary gave a non commital one or two sentence response on the part of the US. She didn’t want to offend Turkey nor Israel. She certainly didn’t want to tell the world that the US is on Israel’s side. The Marxists and Muslims are setting Israel up in my opinion. (Recall Code Pink and their associates, Bill Ayres, going to Egypt and causing problems.).

      Yet it is Turkey that may be behind these ships wanting to run the blockade. Otherwise, why would Turkish activists be onboard those ships?

      These countries are siding against Israel because of the Obama regime and their lack of support and double talk. “we are allies and are joined at the hip IF Israel does what Obama says.” They have given the green light for other countries to team up on Israel. Does anyone think the world wasn’t watching when Obama left the prime minister to eat alone on his last visit? Then shortly thereafter, Mexico got the royal treatment. Mexico sided with the Democrats and Obama in attacking AZ…so he deserved a State dinner. Plus they helped spread the h1n1 mythical swine flu scare. (Oh, by the way, that scare is now officially over).

  30. Yet it is Turkey that may behind the these ships wanting to run the blockade. Otherwise, why would Turkish activists be onboard those ships?

    B, It said somewhere also Irish activists or workers too I think. I found it odd but remembered the luck and everything green..Strange..Turkey. Ottoman empire again. Keeps popping up alot. Over and over.
