    Why, pictures DO speak louder than words!

    Frank Marshall Davis…pfffft another distraction.

  2. Great pictures Miri!

    Are you thinking genetically, “Like Father, Like Son?”

    To save people from having to read it sideways,
    Malcolm X is holding a newspaper saying
    “Extra…Seven Unarmed Negroes Shot by Los Angeles Police” and the second says “To Unite.”

    • I was just fixed on the finger………passed on don’t you think?

      • ROTFL !

        • Looking at that picture it was shocking. The likeness is unbelievable. Yeah malcolm was sending a message so is Obama. Wish I could give him one of those salutes myself.

          • Hi Georgie,

            It is very shocking is it not, like father like son??

            Have you had the chance to go to the Africa thread?? if not here is the link –

            We did some research awhile back and found out some very interesting information, here is just some of the info. we found –

            Barack Obama, Sr.’s Hawaiian education was sponsored partly by the Laubach Literacy Institute (LLI), which has links to the Nation of Islam, and which considers a socialist world without national borders one of its goals. A financial supporter of the LLI was Elizabeth Mooney Kirk, who co-authored books with its founder, Charles Laubach. Kirk was also a friend of civil rights activist and black nationalist Malcolm X (Malcolm Little). It is possible that Malcolm X met Obama, Sr. during a 1959 visit to the Secretary General of the Kenya Federation of Labour, prominent Kenyan politician Tom Mboya, because Mboya and Obama were close friends.

            Another piece of the puzzle??

  3. Hi all, Long time follower of your work, don’t comment often. I was wondering if you all had any info on here about air France plane crash 447 out of Brazil? Just wondering if this fits into Glenn Becks stuff he is putting together? I am not very good at researching. What do you all think?

      • On 25 June, Le Figaro reported that the bodies of the pilot, Marc Dubois, and a flight attendant had been retrieved and identified.[87] On 26 June the Brazilian Military announced it had ended the search for bodies and debris, having recovered 51 bodies with the help of French vessels and French, Spanish and US aircraft.

      • The Flight 447 accident may have some relevant similarities to other A330 incidents with other carriers.[129][130][131][132] Three similar reports are on file at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), with two incidents relating to Airbus A330s with flight computer problems, plus one which involved a Boeing 777.[Note 5][133] In the October 2008 accident, this fault caused injuries to passengers and damage to the aircraft on Qantas Flight 72, en route from Singapore to Perth, Western Australia, which was forced into a dive by a malfunctioning ADIRU. These incidents often started with the autopilot disengaging and sending ADIRU failure messages. Incorrect speed indications were also observed.[133] The airframe and ADIRU involved in the Qantas Flight 72 accident were also previously involved in another incident on Qantas Flight 68, 2006.[121] The Qantas aircraft were equipped with ADIRUs manufactured by Northrop Grumman, while Flight 447 was equipped with an ADIRU manufactured by Honeywell.[130] A memo leaked from Airbus suggests that there was no evidence that the Flight 447 ADIRU malfunction was similar to the failure in the Qantas incidents

      • Notable passengers
        Prince Pedro Luís of Orléans-Bragança, third in succession to the now extinguished throne of Brazil.[152][153] He had dual Brazilian-Belgian citizenship. He was returning home to Luxembourg from a visit to his relatives in Rio de Janeiro.[154][155]
        Luis Roberto Anastacio, president of Michelin for Latin America.[156]
        Silvio Barbato, composer and former conductor of the symphony orchestras of the Brasilia National Theatre and the Rio de Janeiro Municipal Theatre; he was en route to Kiev for engagements there.[157][158]
        Fatma Ceren Necipoğlu, Turkish classical harpist and academic of Anadolu University in Eskişehir; she was returning home via Paris after having given concerts at the fourth Rio Harp Festival.[159]
        Pablo Dreyfus from Argentina, a campaigner for controlling illegal arms and the illegal drugs trade.[160]

  4. Ted Kennedy’s KGB Correspondence (Aiding the enemy as the enemy)

    The American Spectator ^ | June 22, 2010 | Kevin Mooney

    Ted Kennedy’s KGB Correspondence

    By Kevin Mooney on 6.22.10 @ 6:08AM

    Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s self-serving, secret correspondence with Soviet agents during the height of the Cold War included proposals for collaborative efforts designed to undermine official U.S. policy set by Democratic and Republican administrations, KGB documents show.

    With the media now reporting on the late senator’s just released Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) file, now is an opportune time for a more expansive investigation into Kennedy’s KGB contacts. The agency took a keen interest in a 1961 “fact-finding” trip the Massachusetts Democrat took to Mexico and other parts of Latin America where he may have had contact with communist agents, according to the file.

    However, the 2,352 pages of FBI files that cover a period ranging from 1961 to 1985 only tell a small part of the story and do not mention Kennedy’s overtures to Soviet officials. These did not become known outside of Moscow until several years after Cold War tensions receded.

    Kennedy’s long history with the KGB is well documented, but underreported. It remains available through the writings of the now deceased Vasiliy Mitrokhin, who defected to Britain from the Soviet Union in 1992, and a separate 1983 memo addressed to then General Secretary Yuri Andropov. Kennedy’s actions occurred at the expense of presidential authority and in violation of federal law, according to academics and scholars who are familiar with the documents.

    Apparently, I have been banned from TD’s site for having the temerity to criticize HRC. I sent TD several messages, but she has not replied. Others have posted similarly critical opinions, so I am truly perplexed.

    • How dare you criticize HRC? Ha! How funny that TD continues with supporting a Marxist! I saw her rip people apart for doing that. Don’t expect a reply.

      I did the same and many of my comments just disappeared. Remember the times when so many were having problems and being put into moderation?

    • Hi Rosemary,
      I just went over to TD’s site to check out your question/critique re Hillary. I was one of the many Puma’s who left the dem’s over the stolen nomination. I’m not sure as to what my beliefs are at this point. As Redpill’s latest post at his website discusses — all pres. contenders, regardless of “party”, share the same money masters. Leo’s case, congressional reaction to eligibility protests, the common money masters, etc., have led me to believe that it truly is one party at the top. I know it sounds crazy — but, to me, it really feels like good cop/bad cop — the voters are played to think a difference exists between the parties. I don’t even believe our votes are counted as cast . Depressing.
      As to why the money masters chose o over Hillary — I think a couple of reasons may have been:
      they thought
      1) that o would be the best vehicle to push their health care package (what a crooked deal that turned out to be — deals made with big pharma, insurance, etc. — nothing to REDUCE the COST of healthcare — instead it was a guarantee of even more business/money for the players. Perhaps the next step will be to reduce cost (yes I’m dreaming that cost will be reduced lol), who knows — its whatever “they” decide).
      2) that o would also be the best vehicle (muslim “backgroun”, etc.) in bombing Iran.

      • edit lol “background”

        P.S. Renee and Leza, please forgive me for not acknowledging your comments to me (a few months ago) — by the time I saw it you guys were many posts past — love all of you guys. I lurk from time to time (moreso lately), I’ve just been tied up trying to “get it together” (not doing too good a job of that lol).

      • Oh lol, Rosemary, your question was about Hillary and the Arizona suit. Well, you guys know I’m flat out against ILLEGAL immigration — and I am flat out opposed to amnesty (I don’t feel they should be “rewarded”). I actually hope (yes, call me delusional lol) something is done to clarify the 14th amendment — in other words, no more anchor babies. Yes, I understand they flee here for a “better life” …. I cannot tell you how much it irks me to see them get free college/room and board, while the rest of us have to go in debt/pay full price + interest! Its outrageous. And don’t even get me started on that damned racist affirmative action crap lol.

      • One more thing, all of us here, and all of our govt. officials/congress, etc., know o is ineligible. So what is most frightening is that the money masters and our govt. do whatever the hell they damn please — our Constitution means nothing to them, our votes mean nothing, we are but pawns in their game of Chess — the “Rules”, the “Law”, do not apply to them — a mere technicality. They blatantly stepped over “the line” — in broad daylight for all to see. I think even Hillary and Bill were taken aback — recall her cryptic poem after they gave o the nomination.

  6. I’m glad y’all liked the photos. Somebody else put together a montage of photos of Obama and Malcolm X, where it really does seem as if Obama patterns himself on Malcolm X.

    These two photos (not included in the other montage, so far as I can remember) reminded me of another similarity–their shared propensity to “accidentally” flip the bird.

    Is this subliminal messaging by Obama on more than one level? Flipping off his opponents but also messaging to those in the know how alike he is to that other one?

    You be the judge. As I said, I’m just sayin’.

    Rosemary, it’s surprising that you’re being treated that way; but on the other hand maybe not so surprising.

    They are and probably will ever be Hillary supporters, and it appears as if she’s lining up for another run. Why else are the lamestream media running polls to ask if people think Hillary would be a better POTUS than Obama?

    Maybe she’s even lining up to take over if/when Obama gets run out of office.

    However, do you have any evidence whatsoever that this new TD is the same as the old TD, if you get my drift? Does this TD even know/remember you?

    These past few years have left me paranoid, if not totally bonkers, but am I the only one who thinks this dust-up with the Obama-voting McChrystal may be more Kabuki theatre, designed to reinforce the notion of civilian control, Obama as the in-control commander in chief, all designed to set the stage for perhaps inevitable publicity that will come from Lt. Col. Lakin’s court martial?

    Another thing I’m just sayin’.

    • Exactly Miri…

      • am I the only one who thinks this dust-up with the Obama-voting McChrystal may be more Kabuki theatre

        A script Miri, a script …spot on.

    • Miri
      Paranoid also…….
      I agree that the TD site may have been taken over…..but I think it was BEFORE she went off.
      I remember way.back feeling a change in her attitude

    • I thought one of those other people were moderating also…someone with the first name beginning with an S..who was posting articles. Now that person had a real attitude.

      There was definitely a switch at the end and everyone was being put on notice. Then the blog closed. It was all getting weird.

  7. Rosemary Woodhouse

    ^^^ But I digress. After reading the comments for the article posted by Leza @ spectator, I am more convinced than ever about the veracity of Ephesians 2:2 and

    Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    This game of chess has been going on for eons. It’s just a whole lot easier to see which “team” one plays for, as of late.

    • Yes Rose, exactly…

      This game of chess has been going on for eons. It’s just a whole lot easier to see which “team” one plays for, as of late.

  9. The interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he will issue a new drilling moratorium! Obama hates to lose even if a Federal Judge puts them in their place.

  10. Rosemary Woodhouse

    I believe we should start calling him President X. Thanks to ALL of you. As usual, we are all in agreement.

    • Now that’s funny! I refuse to call him pres…so X will work for me!

      X means kiss…as in kiss my a@@.
      X – can also be a mark of hatred.
      X is also used for people who don’t know how to spell or write their name

      More X
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X

      • You ladies are not going to belive this, these fruitloops look at the letter X as resembling the cross !! I ran a search on the letter X and found the below article. Now that I know this info. I’ll be sure to use the letter X often 🙂 hey, ya all think if we all continue to call him president X……..

        I know you know what Im talkin about 😆

        Will Saudis Ban the Letter ‘X’?

        By YOUSSEF IBRAHIM | January 15, 2007

        The letter “X” soon may be banned in Saudi Arabia because it resembles the mother of all banned religious symbols in the oil kingdom: the cross.

    Whatever he can do to circumvent the Congress and their responsibilities.

  12. Hugo Chavez Spearheads Raids as Food Prices Skyrocket
    CNBC – ‎Jun 18, 2010‎

    Mountains of rotting food found at a government warehouse, soaring prices and soldiers raiding wholesalers accused of hoarding: Food supply is the latest battle in President Hugo Chavez’s socialist revolution.

    Critics accuse him of steering the country toward a communist dictatorship and say he is destroying the private sector.

    They point to 80,000 tons of rotting food found in warehouses belonging to the government as evidence the state is a poor and corrupt administrator.

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/37786852

    • Gee, this isn’t too different from allowing millions of gallons of crude oil to wash ashore, destroying the fisheries and the tourism industry, while simultaneously deliberately idling hundreds of thousands of oil industry workers–all to destroy the economy of the Gulf states.

      Steering us towards a communist dictatorship?

      The New X giving the finger to the judiciary, to the Congress, to the military generals, and to We the People of the United States.

      “The state is a poor and corrupt administrator.”

      Sounds like the New X, doesn’t it?

  14. An open letter to President Obama from Jon Voight
    Tuesday, June 22, 2010

    President Obama:

    You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone’s enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm’s way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.

    You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated.

    You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics.

    With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel,

    Jon Voight

  15. Weren’t we betting on this on another thread?

    National Enquirer’s Al Gore Sexual Assault Allegations Ignored by MSM; Oregon May Prosecute
    6/23/10 SNIIPS
    In a bombshell new development in the Al Gore sex scandal — broken exclusively earlier today by The ENQUIRER — the Oregon District Attorney says there’s “the possibility of a criminal prosecution.”

    In a statement just released by Multnomah County (OR.) D.A. Michael D. Schrunk, the official reveals that “our office was notified by the Portland Police Bureau that further investigation of this matter had been conducted by it in 2009 and we were provided with the reports from that further investigation.”

    Schrunk goes on to add: “If the complainant and the Portland Police Bureau wish to pursue the possibility of a criminal prosecution, additional investigation by the Bureau will be necessary and will be discussed with the Portland Police Bureau.”

    The D.A. says the police first briefed his office in late 2006 and early 2007 on the allegations but was told “the woman was not willing to be interviewed by the Portland Police Bureau and did not want a criminal investigation to proceed.”

    Former Vice President Al Gore was accused of sexually attacking a woman in Oregon in 2006, according to police reports uncovered by The National Enquirer. Just as in the John Edwards scandal, the Enquirer’s investigative team has alleged not only Gore’s cheating but also possible criminal acts, and yet the mainstream media so far has refused to pick up the story. The Enquirer’s story on Wednesday gives very specific details of the sexual assault allegations against Gore:

    •No criminal charges were brought against Gore, but the Portland police prepared a document marked ”Confidential Special Report,” which records the explosive allegations of “unwanted sexual contact” by Al Gore “at a local upscale hotel.”
    •Secret police documents, a photo of the woman making the stunning charges and will reveal the shocking details about the pants she saved as evidence!
    •The 62-year-old former VP was in Portland at the time of the alleged incident – Oct. 24, 2006 – and we saw the $540 massage bill.
    The Oregon sexual assault allegation comes days after other reports of Gore’s cheating surfaced. The National Enquirer reported last week that the Gore divorce was caused by Tipper’s jealousy over other women, including “an environmentalist named to a prominent cabinet position by Gore when he was vice president, a sexy Hollywood actress, a gorgeous massage therapist” and “a Tennessee Titans cheerleader.”

    Al Gore’s extramarital affairs could also have federal legal issues, since some allegedly occurred while he was in public office. If Gore was having affairs while he was Bill Clinton’s vice president, several important legal questions arise. Did the vice president’s official White House staff set up his rendezvous? Who in the campaign or official staff knew of the affairs and covered up for Gore? Did Gore or his staff use official taxpayer funds or campaign funds for travel or payment to these women?

    Since the day the Gores announced their split after 40 years of marriage, I’ve predicted that there is more to this story. And as I wrote last week, Gore’s extramarital affairs have been long known in D.C.’s Democratic circles, but he was protected out of fondness for the family, his political allies’ loyalty and the media’s innate sympathy for Democrats. Had these same allegations – sexual assault, extramarital affairs in the White House—been made against a Republican public official, the mainstream media would have been all over the story.

  16. A Must Read, Ladies !! There is corruption everywhere as we all know, but timing is everything, right? I remember listening to the Foreign Affairs/Military Spending Committee last year questioning the HUGE amounts of money going to “civilians” in Afghanistan and the double-downing of funds that suggested incredible waste and fraud..i.e….tearing down a newly remodeled cafeteria to build a new one; missing trucks and/or their inventory, etc. Soooo, we are financing the enemy, huh? Again? Anger is not the word for it and I can’t post what I really want to say !!!

    Posted By Crush
    The scandal surrounding the release of the Rolling Stone profile on McChrystal may have been designed to shift the media’s attention away from the real story – the release of the Congressional report on tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars going to the Taliban and Afghan warlords in a mafia-style protection racket.

    The Host Nation Trucking contract for moving NATO supplies into Afghanistan is worth $2.16 billion. And much of that money, has ended up in the hands of corrupt Afghan warlords as well as the Taliban. But thanks to the media circus surrounding McChrystal, a major story that incriminates not only the DoD, but also the Obama administration has gone virtually unnoticed. This major story isn’t on the front page of any newspaper or website that I can find. No mention at any think tank or influence group. Coincidence? Entirely possible. But consider that the government has known the release date of the investigation for months.

    While “The Runaway General” is an indictment of the current Rules of Engagement and the COIN strategy in Afghanistan, Gary H. Johnson, Jr.’s piece “The McChrystal Flap” places Michael Hasting’s bombshell report into context with the problematic private security contractor situation centered in Kandahar.

    • Peach,

      I saw this today and thought of you, I hope it make’s you smile.

      A United States Marine was attending some college courses
      between assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and
      Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an
      a vowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU.
      One day the professor shocked the class when he came in.
      He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, “GOD, if you are
      real then I want you to knock me off this platform; I’ll give
      you exactly 15 min! ” The lecture room fell silent. You could
      hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed,
      “Here I am GOD, I’m still waiting.”
      It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got
      out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him;
      knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold.
      The Marine went back to his seat and sat there,
      silently.
      The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there
      looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably
      shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, ‘What in the world is the
      matter with you? ‘Why did you do that?’ The Marine calmly replied,
      “GOD was too busy today protecting American soldiers who are protecting
      your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot. So He sent me.”

      The classroom erupted in cheers.

      • That’s one of the best, Leza ! LMBO !!!

        Always thinking and praying for you and yours. I can only imagine what you go thru daily !

  18. Obama’s Washington: What Hath Harvard Wrought! Snips
    June 24, 2010

    Barack Oabama specifically set out to “fundamentally transform” the United States, using what William Kristol of the Weekly Standard describes as “the government schemes of pointy-headed intellectuals” to re-engineer a nation he views as foundationally flawed.

    The results have been predictable for anyone whose head does not come to a needle-sharp point. Record unemployment, a bloated federal government paralyzed by bureaucracy (Reuters headline: “Bureaucracy frustrates U.S. Gulf oil spill efforts”), and debt spiraling out of control even as those constitutionally charged with budgetary responsibilities do nothing.

    What has Harvard wrought? Perhaps it is time to rethink our notion of “smart” — both in education and the world outside. Perhaps the small people (also known as dumb people) are the smart people…and the smart people are the dumb people. When you see the wreckage that is Washington, the lack of respect for individuals, the rejection of constitutional principles that have produced unparalleled freedom and prosperity — “he’s a Harvard man” takes on new meaning.

    Feds bash reliability of birth documents

    Inspector general: Even certificates in doubt because of fraud potential
    June 21, 2010

    Birth documents such as the “Certification of Live Birth” President Obama’s campaign posted online to rebut questions about his constitutional eligibility prove very little other than that a birth happened, according to a federal report uncovered by WND.

    The review of birth-certification procedures and documentation said there are too many open doors through which fraud can enter the system to rely significantly on the document. And even an original birth certificate isn’t always sufficient, the report said, because much of the fraud committed at the time of the report was by imposters using genuine documentation.

    “Agencies who rely on birth certificates as a means of establishing identity must understand the limitations of accepting a birth certificate as proof of age, citizenship or identity,” the report warned.

    “For example, genuine documents obtained with counterfeit birth certificates can be used to obtain genuine birth certificates. Thus, it is inherently illogical to require someone to prove their identity using potentially fraudulent identity documents spawned by false birth certificates in order to obtain a birth certificate.”

  20. Marty Didier Returns! Do you remember this person from a long, long time ago?I recognized the name, but not the association with Obama. Anyone remember? They posted and then would get lost for awhile and would then return at the other blog.

    Marty Didier // June 22, 2010 at 4:01 pm CW

    I’ve been saying for a long time that we are in the midst of a White House Coup that includes large corporations such as BP. This is similar to what happened in 1933 with The Business Plot.

    How could anyone ever think this is a big surprise when there is a Coup involved brought in by large financial groups and corporations? Expect many more. I’m for going after them using the legal system but that too unfortunately has shown itself to be so badly corrupt that it’s a joke. I knew that Chiquita Brands among others were directly involved with arming people in Columbia where many were killed and shipping to the US hof Cocaine to be sold to our kids. The purpose for the sale is to FUND Black Ops in support of the White House Coup. What happened to Chiquita? Holder got them off with a slap on the their hand! By the way I know from being in a family for more than 26 years who worked directly with Obama as he was an attorney here in Chicago that Obama is also involved in the huge Drug system!

    Maybe we all ought to wake up and see what is really happening!

  21. Two Federal Agencies cancel events in AZ because of their new immigration law. The Border Patrol and the Dept. of Education have both cancelled events there. Unbelievable…

    Isn’t that Dept of Education headed up by one of Obama’s cronies from Chicago?… Arne Duncan, Secretary! The Border Patrol is handled by Homeland Security…Janet Napolitano.

    The Federal Government boycotting a US state..Arizona!!!

    House Passes DISCLOSE Act
    NRO ^ | Daniel Foster

    Posted on Thursday, June 24, 2010 1:46:50 PM by OldDeckHand

    The House just passed the DISCLOSE Act, by a vote of 219-206. As with so much in this Congress, the only thing bipartisan about the bill was the opposition to it.

    “What the hell IS it?”
    From The Hill, just a few days ago…

    In full disclosure, I think the Disclose Act is a complete joke, and it is getting funnier.
    What is the Disclose Act?

    According to The Hill, the Disclose Act is “the Democratic response to a January Supreme Court ruling that overturns limits on spending by corporations and unions in political campaigns. It would tighten transparency requirements associated with corporate and union contributions, including forcing the CEOs of businesses to appear in ads funded by the company.”

    The Disclose Act has been shepherded through the Congress by the two guys who are most responsible for electing Democrats to the House and Senate, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (Md.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.).

    This bill isn’t about high constitutional principles. It isn’t about protecting the freedom of the American people. And it isn’t about creating private-sector jobs or cutting the deficit. -snip-

    This legislation, as the Democratic sponsors would probably admit to you over a couple of drinks, is designed to give Democrats a better chance to win election this year and into the future.

    A top aide to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich said he believed Barack Obama knew of Blagojevich’s plot to win himself a presidential Cabinet post in exchange for appointing Valerie Jarrett to the U.S. Senate.

    John Harris, Blagojevich’s former chief of staff, testified Wednesday in the former governor’s corruption trial that three days after the Nov. 4, 2008, presidential election, the ex-governor told Harris he felt confident Obama knew he wanted to swap perks.

    Source: Administration Weighs Bypassing Congress to Let Illegal Immigrants Stay

    The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, a former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks told FoxNews.com.

    The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, a former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks told FoxNews.com.

    The issue was raised publicly by eight Republican senators who wrote to the White House on Monday to complain that they had heard the administration was readying a “Plan B” in case a comprehensive immigration reform bill cannot win enough support to clear Congress.

    The White House would not confirm or deny the claim. But the former Bush official said the discussions are real.

  25. Today’s Supreme Court Ruling Limits Use of Fraud Law. Decision could impact case against Blago as well as Skilling, Former Enron CEO, who is serving 24 years in prison now. More than half of the charges against Blago will be affected by this new ruling.

  26. Police in AZ are on heightened alert since the Mexican Cartels have told them they will kill any police or border officer on duty or off duty! Near Nogales AZ, these officers are being threatened.

    Yet Obama still hasn’t done a thing to help AZ..he is all talk. No manpower has been sent yet, no monies to employ other officers, no national guards authorized yet to help.

    What the heck? Janet Napolitano and Obama …DO YOUR JOB and protect our borders and the people that live there. They are US citizens!

  27. Give Obama immunity from prosecution..Vote Democratic! Guess they are really worried about their criminal actions..so send money to anyone but a democrat!

    Pelosi: Send cash to stop investigations of Obama!
    Warns GOP takeover of Congress will ‘bring back days of Ken Starr’
    June 24 Snips

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is urging Americans to send money to Democrats – or Republicans could take back the House and launch “endless investigations against President Obama!”

    Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, blasted Pelosi’s request to “obstruct oversight” over the Obama administration today.

    “Between a trillion-dollar stimulus, numerous bailouts and a government takeover of health care, the role, size and scope of the federal government has grown dramatically,” he said in a press release. “Can Speaker Pelosi honestly tell the American people we need less oversight, not more?”

    He said lawmakers have a responsibility to investigate “the litany of waste, fraud, abuse, mismanagement and corruption that exists in our own federal bureaucracy.”

    Issa said Pelosi is wrong to think that a Democratic Congress should give the administration immunity from questions and accountability.

    “Her statements are indicative of the desperate state her majority is in, and if the best case she can make is to caution the American people against the dangers of conducting legitimate and vigorous oversight, she is welcome to make that case,” he said

    • SESTAK-GATE – Dems block inquiry into White House ‘crimes’
      Majority party blocks resolution of inquiry procedure
      June 24, 2010 Snips

      Majority Democrats on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee today blocked one avenue of inquiry into the White House’s attempt to secure victory for two incumbent Senate candidates by offering a job to their chief opponent in exchange for exiting the race.

      Issa’s comments came after the resolution of inquiry was defeated in a 15-12 vote

      Republicans on the Judiciary Committee had filed a resolution that sought information about the role the Justice Department may have played in the offers to Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., and Andrew Romanoff, the former speaker of the Colorado House.

      Issa’s investigation requests were followed by similar requests by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public-interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption.

      It is an absolute disgrace that Attorney General [Eric] Holder has not appointed a special counsel to investigate these scandals.

  28. Terror
    EXCLUSIVE: AWOL Afghans Found … on Facebook
    June 25, 2010

    At least 11 of the 17 members of the Afghan military who went AWOL from an Air Force base in Texas and are considered deserters by their nation have turned up in the exact place you’d expect to find them in the year 2010. They’re on Facebook.

    And, by the look of things, they’re not unlike millions of other young men on the social networking site……But others have friends whose motives may be much more sinister. Some belong to the “Afghanistan Mujahideen” group, a page that features, among other content, videos from the American-born Al Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn, a.k.a. Azzam the American.

    According to a nationwide be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) bulletin that was sent by the North Texas Joint Terrorism Task force to law enforcement agencies across the country last week, the 17 Afghan deserters walked away from the Defense Language Institute at Lackland Air Force Base, where they had been studying English. The men have military identification that would give them access to secure U.S. military installations, the bulletin read.

    Enforcement source told FoxNews.com that only two or three of the 17 Afghans remain at
    large. The source said investigators have been working with Canadian immigration records and now believe that many of the men are in Canada.

    David Smith, spokesman for Randolph Air Force Base in Texas, told FoxNews.com he was told that four of the men remain unaccounted for. Of the 13 who have been located, he said, six have pending refugee claims in Canada, two have permanent residency in Canada, four are in the process of being deported and one is a conditional resident alien in the U.S.

    Another AWOL Afghan on Facebook is Shawali Kakar, who introduces himself as, “hello my name is shahwali(kakar) ….Some of Kakar’s friends belong to the “Afghanistan Mujahideen” group, a page that features videos from Adam Gadahn. The group is tagged in notes on a range of topics, including “jihad in the way of Allah” and “preaching the revolution of Islam.”

    This Dave Weigel is one guy who has been a thorn in the side of anybody seeking to learn the TRUTH about who Obama really is. Good riddance; don’t let the door hit you in the asshat on your way out.

    Red Pill, thanks for the link. I’d forgotten about that article. It’s a great one for background on certain puzzling similarities. Did you see Polarik’s new video? He has some interesting new theories:

    • I’ve hated that Weigel slime guy. No article he has ever written was truthful. After reading them, I would kick myself for having done so. He infuriated me every time. I sent him some great emails for not covering the truth and instead using the same old tired lies over and over. Glad to know I won’t have to read his stuff again.

      • Isn’t it great to learn that some people actually thought this guy was a conservative? When all he was supposed to do is cover the “conservative movement.”

        No wonder there are no real conservative voices in the lamestream, if people like Weigel can pretend to be conservative and end up representing conservatives so that the lamestream can pretend to welcome “diverse” voices. Right.

        Any quick search of Weigel’s writing would prove he’s no conservative. Far from it. And this is how they vet someone.

        Instead of fairly reporting on the conservatives, what he did instead was to collude with as many as 400 other so-called “journalists”, liberals all, to trash the conservatives, the Tea Partiers, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh, Palin, and anybody else whose voices they needed to shut up.

        Now they’re shutting down their little private “social networking” list. As if. They’ll just reconsitute in another sphere, being more careful next time, after rooting out the leaker.

        Interesting how they hate THAT whistle blower. Didn’t they love the guys who leaked the Pentagon papers? Didn’t they love Deep Throat? Depends upon whose ox is being gored.

        We talked about this list long ago. Where has the rest of the new media, including Drudge, been all this time?

        The REAL story here is how these asshats on this private list conspired to propagate the propaganda handed to them by the WH. This is how we end up with so many “reporters” using the exact same terminology, like insane parrots, to describe whatever their messiah has done recently. For example, his “BRILLIANT” (although totally obvious) move to put Petraeus in charge of Afghanistan.

        I hate them ALL.

  30. A summary of the background of Weigel’s participation in the discrediting of We the People who simply want proof that Obama is eligible to SERVE US:

    http://24ahead.com/dave-weigel-slate-reason-magazine-lies-about-obama-birth-cer

    • This may not be the right thread for me to post this — you guys may have already discussed this in the past.

      “Justice Thomas: We are evading the eligibility issue”

  31. “Reached by phone late Thursday and asked about the e-mails, Weigel responded, “my reporting, I think, stands for itself.”

    “I’ve always been of the belief that you could have opinions and could report anyway …. people aren’t usually asked to stand or fall on everything they’ve said in private.”

    That’s from the dailycaller piece.

    He says, “People aren’t usually asked to stand or fall on everything they’ve said in private.”

    Gee, Dave, tell that to Stan McChrystal.

    Hoist on your messiah’s own petard?

    What gets me is how the eff the WaPo can claim they vetted him before hiring him and figured he’s fair, based upon his past writings. Nothing I’ve read by Weigel has EVER seemed fair and unbiased. But this is the lamestream media–it all depends upon what the meaning of “fair” is.
