  1. Whooo Hoooo…. House votes to overthrow ‘czars’ 9 Down…how many to go? Now it has to go to the Senate!

    Feb. 17 Snips
    The House voted Thursday to dethrone nine White House “czars.” The vote was 249-179.

    Republicans successfully added an amendment to the continuing resolution that would leave President Barack Obama’s senior advisers on policy issues including health care, energy and others out of a job. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) offered the amendment that blocks funding for various policy advisers to combat what he called “a very disturbing proliferation of czars” under Obama.

    “These unappointed, unaccountable people who are literally running a shadow government, heading up these little fiefdoms that nobody can really seem to identify where they are or what they’re doing,” Scalise said Thursday. “But we do know that they’re wielding vast amounts of power.”

    The jobs on the chopping block: White House-appointed advisers on health care, energy and climate, green jobs, urban affairs, the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention center, oversight of TARP executive compensation, diversity at the Federal Communications Commission and the auto industry manufacturing policy.

    These so-called “czars” have been favorite targets of Republicans and conservative talk radio hosts, especially energy and climate adviser Carol Browner, who is leaving the administration. “This is a person who’s continued to do things behind closed doors,” Scalise said of Browner.

  2. A freshman democrat wrote the bill to defund it! Now that’s a shocker.

    Republicans Seek to Defund Stimulus on Second Anniversary of Program
    February 17, 2011 Snips

    A coalition of conservative groups and Republican lawmakers led by freshman Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy is celebrating the second anniversary of the passage of President Obama’s $814 billion stimulus bill on Thursday by trying to defund what’s left of it. But with Democrats still in control of the Senate and the White House, getting federal money back after it’s been obligated may not be as easy as conservative activists wish.

    Duffy, a former MTV reality star, was elected to fill the seat of longtime Democratic Rep. David Obey, the author of the stimulus bill who retired instead of facing what was expected to have been a tough re-election battle. Duffy introduced legislation last Thursday to return the $168 billion unspent portions of the stimulus back to the Treasury. Another $7 billion in uncommitted funds remains unspent.

    Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., introduced a companion bill in the Senate on Thursday.

  3. The Countrywide Subpoena
    Rep. Issa wants the names of VIP-loan recipients.

    FEBRUARY 16, 2011 Snips

    Taxpayers wanting the whole story of how Countrywide Financial used its VIP loan program to grease politicians and reward its partners at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may soon have it. Thanks for this belated act of political hygiene go to House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, who Wednesday issued a subpoena to Bank of America, which bought Countrywide during the financial crisis.

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has issued a broad subpoena to Bank of America, which bought Countrywide in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis. By March 7, the bank will need to produce all documents related to the company’s VIP program, also known as the “Friends of Angelo” program in honor of former Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo.

    In 2009 Mr. Issa persuaded then-Oversight Committee Chairman Ed Towns to issue a similar subpoena. But to protect the less-than-innocent, Mr. Towns asked that names be redacted. The identities of political “friends” in the House were sent only to the ethics committee, where they seem to have fallen down a well.[Boxer’s committee that didn’t investigate Obama pre election either!] Senate names were not shared with anyone. Mr. Issa’s new subpoena seeks the whole story, unredacted.

    • Chris Dodd is gone as is Rahm, but Barney is still there. This should get interesting. Plus if I recall, ACORN was involved with this whole mess through B of A (remember the mortgage papers found in the trash cans that now Governor Brown then AG Brown was going to look into, but didn’t).

      Who will fall from this investigation? Day by day, I bet there are some wet pants on the democrats side.

  4. Gotta love it! You know those 14 missing Wisconsin Senate democrats who jumped on a bus today and went over to Illinois to evade a vote. ..The Tea Party found them at the Resort and called for a “Flash Rally!”

    “The Rockford Tea Party just chased the Wisconsin democrats out of the Best Western. They just boarded their bus and are leaving the Best Western!”

    Were the dems worried about the Tea Party getting “violent” like they always do? Ha! The TP sent them back to face the real lefties who are nasty and vile in their own state who are getting their marching orders from the radicals, unions, and Organizing for America! Way to go TP’s!

  5. One of the Main Strong Arm Organizations of the Socialist Democrat Party – Wisconsin..Is this the beginning?
    February 17, 2011 Snips

    Folks, what is going on in Wisconsin is not just happening by chance.
    I bet you a dime to a dollar the National Education Association has their fingerprints all over the protest. Our Children were taken out of school and bused to the State House protest. Our public schools are full of Marxists, Communists, socialists (called Teachers/Professors).

    • Wisconsin – Unions want to overturn election result!

      Feb. 16, 2011 Snips

      Governor Walker [R} remember, is not removing unions’ fundamental power to bargain for wages. He is demanding that state workers put 5.8% of their wages toward retirement and that they cover 12.6% of their health care premiums, which would still have them paying more than $100 less a month than the average schmoe. He is also proposing that elected officials determine the shape of employee benefits without having to bargain them, and this as much as the added cost has unions crying “unfair.”

      Union activists in Madison Tuesday spoke apocalyptically of “class war,” hinting wildly at general strikes and takeovers of the Capitol. They correctly see their control of the state slipping and must figure that if they bring 13,000 shouting people to Madison, they can overrule the election.

      http://www.jsonline.com/news/opinion/116355379.html

      • The governor wants to save $300 million over two years and this is what he gets…union protests by the DNC, NEA and imported agitators. The governor was hired to save the State and now the unions are upset. The state faces a $3.5 billion shortfall..so if they don’t want to help pay for their own retirement…lay them off.

        Organizing for America and the Unions are busing radicals into Madison to help their own revolution! Note from videos and TV all the nasty signs they carry. They are doing what they accused the Tea Party of doing! Watch your union dues at work for the Marxist revolutionaries..coming to a town near you soon. This appears to be the beginning of Francis Fox Piven’s call to revolt. They call in their professional agitators…those great community organizers like the pres who never had a job in his life. He is helping to stir the pot in the US and overseas..what a prize we have in him.

        Fire the teachers that are calling in sick or taking their classes to the protest! They are sending those ACORN clones to trample the governor’s lawn too.

        • The kids did not even know what was up or why they went there. Also, did parents do permission slips thru the School District admin for their kids to go ? Is that an approved, educational field trip thru the school district ? Planned ? approved by the school board ? If not, people are going to loose jobs. Without permission and a formal, previously planned, school field trip this could be kidnapping. It is also teaching children how to be strong arm thugs. Is this what people want their children to learn really ?

  6. Hate those chinese mercury-laden bulbs being forced upon us.
    Another bogus poll — I don’t believe 3 out 4 americans want ’em.

    Poll: Americans OK with newer light bulbs

    The results come as GOP efforts intensify in Congress to repeal the bi-partisan 2007 law, which begins phasing out the traditional incandescent bulb in Jan. 2012. Two dozen House Republicans, led by Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, proposed a bill last month to repeal the phaseout, saying most Americans oppose it.

    “The market should determine the future of the incandescent light bulb, not Congress,” says Steve Taylor, spokesman for Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., a co-sponsor of the repeal effort.

    http://content.usatoday.com/communities/greenhouse/post/2011/02/poll-americans-ok-newer-light-bulbs/1?csp=34money&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+UsatodaycomMoney-TopStories+%28Money+-+Top+Stories%29&utm_content=My+Yahoo

    • I just moved into my mom’s house. I thought there was something wrong with the light switches in the bedrooms and hall because the lights didn’t immediately go on and had a two beat delay from when I flicked the switches, as if electricity wasn’t getting through the light switches.

      It turned out to be because of the curly light bulbs, which, for some reason, work fine in our lamps but don’t immediately turn on in the light fixtures.

      I’m getting rid of them. There are no three way curly light bulbs to go in my three way lamps, either, so I’m stocking up on three way bulbs.

    • Better stock up on the normal light bulbs …because they are disappearing to be replaced by those toxic curly bulbs. I say toxic because if they break you are in danger if you don’t handle them properly. They have special disposal conditions. I think you have to deliver your bad curlies to a special place in the city. You can’t just throw them away. Thanks to the environmentalists and the idiot and his cronies in the WH. Is GE’s plant in Mexico making those curly bulbs or were those outsourced to China? How many bulb manufacturers in the U.S. are being put out of business?

      Sorry, I don’t want to pay almost $4.00 per bulb when I can get 4 regular bulbs for half the price.

  7. Re-posted from the “Who Is This Man?” Post.

    The title of this post asks “Who Is This Man?” Well, judging by the toddler photo originally posted on Mark’s website (h/t Kathy) AND the photo of an older obama, we see

    THIS MAN IS ****DAVID*****

    Check out the baldish spot of his hairline — the pictures tell the story. O does want us to know, otherwise he and Mark would not have allowed these photos to be published.

    vs.

    • BINGO Anoni !!!
      (((HUG”S)))

    • I truly think that baby is barky.

      its the only picture of him as a toddler/ child that looks anything like him.

      and, I think the older child is the spitting image of Frank Marshall Davis.

      • Yes, Princess Papooski, they posted those photos intentionally.

        • They sure did, Anoni.

          Dr. Polland pulls the photo apart.

          lookie here. See Spot run, Judy! Dick looked at Jane, sheepishly.

          barky was invented. and everyone knows.

          now, just who is the some body- sworn under oath on a passport – named Soebarkah? hmmm where’s this named person now?

          Speak to us.

      • I don’t know who the older child is — Mark Ndesandjo says it is he — but it could be anyone, kids are pictured with friends and family all the time, so it could be mark ndesandjo, davis, malik, could be ANYBODY — or a could be just another of the many photoshopped pictures….

    • I still think the older baby is Mark Davis. The face is so much the same.

      • Brilliant Glowing Star Renee
        I am with you.

        Will the real Mark please stand up.

        Never mind. We have eyes.

        they are moles, pun intended.

    • hmmmm…..are these hairline photos part of yet another set-up? Why are they giving us these photos with the smudged hairlines?

    • A changeling. I’ve always thought so, but also considered the possibility that David is/was twins. After all, his name means “the elder of twins.” So who would be the other?

      Is this why Mark always refers to him as “my brother” even when reporters say, “half-brother?” And why people in Kenya who saw him when he visited had to be told, “No, that’s not David. That’s Barack?” And why David “died”? And why the only photos of David have been photoshopped, especially that “two brothers” photo where “David’s” upper lip is deliberately changed? The ears match, too. If you look at the teeth in the older David photo, they look more like Barry’s than the “dentally challenged” one.

      David is not a NBC.

      • IF the name is real, reflecting 2nd of twins, then perhaps he was a twin — perhaps the twin died…perhaps there never was a twin…perhaps they would reveal barry and mark were twins.
        I’m deflated.

    • Can one of you save this picture with the others Bridgette posted in the Photos Tab Page — Sleuth, if you’re up, can you please do it for me — I don’t know how to post photos. It is an additional photo showing his hairline. Evidently he must have had “work” done, maybe hair plugs.
      Zoom up to 200% for a better view.

      http://www.sgco.biz/SGC_Obama.html

      • I don’t think he’s running for a 2nd term — they wouldn’t be putting these photos out there if he were.

        • Would they?
          What do you guys think?

          • He’s not running for a 2nd term.

          • I don’t know Anoni. Every time I think I’m sure he will not run something happens to make it look like he is. As far as that photo of what’s supposed to be David and Mark Ndsandjo, I believe that Mark wants us to know the truth, but for some reason has not revealed it. What ever happened to his 2nd book he was going to write?

          • Its over Kathy — he’s not running. They wouldn’t put those photos out there if he were running. Ugh, I’m not pleased with myself.

            Don’t know about Mark — perhaps he’ll publish when his brother is out of office. I don’t think Mark put that photo on his website w/o his brother’s permission — they planned it, I think.
            Kathy, do you recall when Mark put that photo on his site?

            *******************************
            ***Sleuth/Bridgette/Miri — the webpage at that link states we are not permitted to copy anything w/o permission (at bottom of page).

          • Kathy, you’re right, one can never be sure of anything…but I just can’t imagine that these photos were not intentionally placed.

          • I think that he put it out a long time ago. I think shortly after the election. I think maybe about the time the CNN interview came out.

  8. U.S. Blocks U.N. Resolution Calling Israeli Settlements ‘Illegal’
    Security Council Vote Put U.S. in Diplomatic Bind Over Settlements
    The U.S. today vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as “illegal” and ordered all construction operations there to stop.
    Feb. 18, 2011 Snips

    The U.S. was the sole no vote on the 15-member Security Council, which had broadly supported the Palestinian-sponsored resolution. The Obama administration’s veto will likely deepen anger towards the U.S., both among leaders of the Palestinian Authority and across the Arab world.

    U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said after the vote that the U.S. position should not be seen as a support for Israel’s settlement program. “We reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” she said.

    The vote had put the Obama administration in a diplomatic jam on the world stage. Indeed, on Nov. 2, 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that “the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements,”….

  9. The House defunded Planned Parenthood in a vote today!

    House Votes to Strip Planned Parenthood of Federal Funding
    Amendment Passes Despite Stunning Personal Testimony From Rep. Jackie Speier
    Feb 18, 2011 Snips

    The House of Representatives Friday passed a measure to end federal funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood a day after Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., brought the chamber to stunned silence after describing her own personal experience with abortion.

    Friday afternoon, the House passed the amendment by a vote of 240-185

    The measure would eliminate about $330 million through the end of September for preventative-health services, including federal funding for contraception and cancer screenings, at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. Planned Parenthood is already prevented by federal law from using federal dollars for abortion services.

  10. House votes to block funds for healthcare law
    Republicans in the House continued their attack on the healthcare overhaul law, adding measures to prohibit enactment to a key spending bill. A separate effort to cut all federal spending to 2008 levels fails.

    WASHINGTON — A full-scale attack on the healthcare overhaul law advanced Friday as the Republican-led House attached several measures that would prevent the legislation’s enactment to a spending bill, but pushed back a separate measure to cut all federal spending to 2008 levels.

    Republicans have pledged to dismantle the healthcare law, the signature achievement of President Obama and the then-Democratic-controlled Congress last year, after GOP efforts to repeal the measure stalled in the Senate, which remains in Democratic hands.

    In a series of back-to-back votes Friday, Republicans in the House led passage of a measure by Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) that would prohibit funds for putting the new healthcare law in place.

    The House also approved two measures by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) that would ban funds carry out any of the provision of the law and bar salaries for government workers implementing the law.

    Republicans also targeted a key feature of the healthcare law — the requirement that all Americans carry insurance – voting to prohibit funds to the Internal Revenue Service for enforcement.

  11. We used to think that Friday’s would bring all Obama’s hidden news that they didn’t want people to hear about..but today is different if you look at all of the defunding that the Republicans passed. They even got rid of some of the czars! They are on a roll! In a loud chorus…can we hear from Obama’s opponents? All together now, WE WON! Keep it coming! WE WON!!!

    So among all of the bad news coming out of the Middle East and from various states that are dealing with the union thugs, we still made progress against the progressives. They are squealing like pigs! Or should I say they are braying like the asses or donkeys they are!

    One of the Democratic Reps or Senators said that the “Republicans are becoming the wrecking crew!”

  13. Soros: Obama ‘Has Lost Control of the Agenda’
    Friday, 18 Feb 2011 07:45 PM

    Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) — Billionaire investor George Soros said Democratic President Barack Obama “has lost control of the agenda” on the U.S. economy, leaving it “now in the hands of the Republican Party.” Republicans “are going to pursue a very strong effort to cut services by refusing to have any tax increases,” Soros said in an interview with CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” program.

    “I think this agenda will be successful,” though it will be “more directed at cutting services and achieving the ideological purposes of the Republicans rather than to get the economy going,” Soros, 80, said, according to excerpts of the interview released by CNN. “I think this will have a negative impact on the economy.” The White House had no immediate comment on Soros’s remarks on the program, scheduled to be broadcast Feb. 20.

  14. Disgusted Allen West to Dems: Grow Up!
    Friday, 18 Feb 2011

    Rookie U.S. Rep. Allen West delivered a stinging indictment of his colleagues in a letter to constituents in which he rails about House members’ “ignorance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric.” Without naming names, but clearly implying that he was including President Barack Obama, the Florida Republican also decried Washington’s interference with Wisconsin’s budget turmoil. The text of the letter to residents of Florida’s 22nd District:

    “Over this past week I have watched and listened to members of the House of Representatives from across the aisle.

    “I am appalled at their ignorance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric filled with empty emotional platitudes. Have they no shame in realizing that their inept, incompetent failures are the reason why we are debating this continuing resolution. They failed to pass a budget during the 111th Congress.

    “Have they no honor in realizing that their fiscal irresponsibility over the past four years has resulted in our standing on the precipice of a fiscal canyon from which we may not recover.

    “Also troubling are the events in the state of Wisconsin which mirror those that happened in Greece several months ago. We are witnessing the abject hostility of a unionized entitlement class that is being lauded by the liberal left, seemingly to include our President.

    “It is such a critical time for our Republic, yet there seems no visionary leadership — it is as if America stopped producing adults. I have never seen a greater assembly of petulance and sophomoric behavior as what I have witnessed this week on the floor of the House of Representatives.

    “To those across the aisle, please explain to the American people how your economic policies have created a better environment for long-term sustainable growth.

    “This debate is about jobs and the economy.

    “It begins with remedying the spending problem on Capitol Hill. It includes tackling the burdensome taxation and regulation policies strangling our country. It is the understanding that Keynesian tax and spend policies did not grow America’s economy, but the indomitable, entrepreneurial spirit of the American people.

    “Government sets the conditions for job and economic growth, it does not create jobs.

    “I am pleased that we are having open debate in the peoples’ house. However, there is clearly something lacking in this discourse — the recognition of the failure of the bureaucratic nanny-state liberal policies.

    “Rest assured that I will do everything in my ability to stand firm and lead on the principles that make America exceptional.”

    • He’s probably alluding to those red “So Be It” buttons the sophomoric, juvenile Dems showed up wearing. As if this is all some kind of game instead of the serious business of trying to save our country from economic disaster, mostly wrought by Dems and their saviour Barry.

  15. The people in our government our so corrupt. It never ends…..Read this…..

    U.S. Gov‘t Software Creates ’Fake People’ to Spread Message via Social Networking

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/u-s-govt-software-creates-fake-people-to-spread-message-via-social-networking/

    • Thanks for sharing that, Kathy. Sends chills up my spine. Wonder if they used this to help create the Middle East riots, as well as the riots planned here.
      All kinds of evil could arise from this software.

      “…“I don’t know about you, but this concerns me greatly,” Daily Kos blogger Happy Rockefeller writes. “It goes far beyond the mere ability for a government stooge, corporation or PR firm to hire people to post on sites like this one. They are talking about creating the illusion of consensus. And consensus is a powerful persuader….””

      • This is downright creepy! I feel violated just reading about it!
        Read the entire article via Kathy’s above link.

        ““Those names can be cross-referenced across Facebook, twitter, MySpace, and other social media services to collect information on each individual. Once enough information is collected this information can be used to gain access to these individuals social circles. …

        Even the most restrictive and security conscious of persons can be exploited. Through the targeting and information reconnaissance phase, a person’s hometown and high school will be revealed. An adversary can create a classmates.com account at the same high school and year and find out people you went to high school with that do not have Facebook accounts, then create the account and send a friend request.

        Under the mutual friend decision, which is where most people can be exploited, an adversary can look at a targets friend list if it is exposed and find a targets most socially promiscuous friends, the ones that have over 300-500 friends, friend them to develop mutual friends before sending a friend request to the target. To that end friend’s accounts can be compromised and used to post malicious material to a targets wall. When choosing to participate in social media an individual is only as protected as his/her weakest friend.””

    • From that story: “According to the contract, the software would enable the government to shield its fake identity by employing a number of false signals to make it appear that the profile belongs to a real person. Additionally, software technicians could manipulate unique IP addresses to make it look like the profile originated from anywhere around the globe. ‘A single user could manage unique background information and status updates for up to 10 fake people from a single computer,’ The Enquirer notes.”

      Wow. As if they don’t do this already! Trolls, obots, etc., with numerous names and numerous IP#s. Somewhere among all the links in that story, I found a story that says Think Progress accused the US Chamber of Commerce of pulling this stuff, but it appears to be a false flag deal where they accuse others of their own tactics. Nothing is real. Certainly, I do hope that our legislators are smart enough to know about this new equivalent of “spam”.

  16. Google and the Government
    February 18, 2011 Snips

    That the advocacy group Consumer Watchdog is accusing the Obama administration of a “cozy” relationship with the Internet behemoth Google is hardly a surprise.

    Consumer Watchdog is calling for a Congressional investigation of Google’s close relationship with the National Security Agency, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Department of Defense and other government agencies — and questioning the actions of White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer Andrew McLaughlin, the former head of global public policy for Google.

    At the core of the complaints is the concern that the sacred doctrine of “openness,” the organizing principle of the Internet, is being violated by Google via its relationship with the government. The two together appear to be engaged in clandestine and undisclosed projects, but who really believes that Google or the government will divulge their motives and operations?

    These issues are troublesome, but there is another problem. Google is politically slanted, leaning leftward in its public stances on gay rights and the environment — and cemented by their total commitment to Obama’s presidential campaign.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/02/google_and_the_government.html

    • I think google and the govt will be forever locked in close embrace.

    • From that story, “I had my own confrontation with Google from 2002 to 2003 as a victim of the penchant to use their power to discredit those that didn’t agree with their agenda. When entering my name in the Google search box, the usual directory of choices was replaced by a full screen shot of a hard Left web site featuring attacks on me. Worse, the negative comments were patently false, verified by comments to the site defending my views.

      My correspondence with Google was an instructive lesson in obfuscation. The company explained that the site attacking me was receiving high rankings from users. I found that ludicrous. It was an effort to classify references to me in a negative light. I doubt Google central office was responsible, but someone within the organization was, more than likely influenced by the web site attacking me. I spent money on lawyers, and finally references under my name were listed the same as anyone else — and the offending web site didn’t make the cut.”

      Wow. How often did we see that exact scenario play out since the beginning, when Barry started his run? I remember one case, but not the particulars, where the company management blamed the tampering on a single employee, sitting in a cubicle. How pat of an explanation is that? And then, they can always make the bogus explanation they gave this author, because who can prove otherwise, short of a subpoena? And then again, they have the means to scrubadubdub. I hope Issa does call hearings. It’s far past time to shine the light on these non-transparent cockroaches. Here’s a great paragraph:

      “At least AT&T paid lip service to pre-digital age ethics. Google and the new breed of communications monoliths were founded — and run today — by youngish executives representing the first graduating classes from universities that ignored the inheritance of 2000 years of western civilization and the requirement of ethics and morality in society. Lacking a value system, the new technobrats rarely heeded the necessity of fair dealing as they ventured into the uncharted realm of the Internet.”

      Isn’t that the truth? Big Brother consists of an army of “technobrats” who were raised on progressive permissiveness, a “me first” mentality, “by any means necessary” mindset, and elitist snobbery. They are fascists.

    President Ahmadinejad, tell us what you really think.

    As anti-government protests pop up in Iran this week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacked Barack Obama on Friday, saying the American president “doesn’t even know how to spell his own name properly” and “can’t even control his own emotions.”

    The jabs came after Obama this week gave cautious support to the protests going on in Iran. But despite that support, the Iranian government is still taking a strong stance against the protesters, again calling for the execution of those who dare to oppose the regime.

    Ynetnews.com reports:

    A statement issued by the regime in Tehran said, “The public will unite and express hatred toward the barbaric crimes of the incitement leaders and their hypocritical allies.”

    Iranian lawmakers called for opposition leaders to be tried and executed as punishment for the protests that took place in Tehran on Monday and after the disputed 2009 presidential elections.

    “Mousavi and Karroubi should be executed,” lawmakers chanted at Tuesday’s open parliament session. “Death to Mousavi, Karroubi and Khatami!” they shouted, the state-run news agency IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency) reported.

    “We believe the people have lost their patience and demand capital punishment” a statement signed by three-quarters of the lawmakers read.

    • “Ahmadinejad Insults Obama: Can‘t Even ’Spell His Own Name’…”

      What does Ahmadinejad know? Is it that o doesn’t use the name “soetoro”?

    • What a peculiar comment. What does Ahmadinejad know about Obama’s name? Is his comment a warning to the good old usurper? I think Obama’s secret is well known by the Middle Eastern Countries as well as others. Blackmail, intimidation and threats against Obama will continue, although we probably won’t read about it, and Ahmadinejad is just one of the first to put it out in the open. They will now see that Obama is even weaker than they perceived, and will take full advantage of him and the U.S. They might be doing that now. Putin took advantage of Obama and his crew with the Start Treaty. Now the dictators are spitting in his face and not listening to what the US says. All the tyrants unite!

      Our founders knew what they were doing when they wrote the constitution and Article II. Obama will be the prime example of the consequences of not following that document to the letter. Unfortunately, we have to endure the results of his on the job training and intentional bumbling. His superior intellect is a sham. He is the idiot puppet on the world stage whose masters are pulling his strings.

      What name of AKA Obama is Ahmadinejad referring to? Soebarka?, Soetoro?, Steve? etc., etc., etc. Sure wish he’d given us more of a clue!

    Thanks to Michael Oberndorf, writing at Canada Free Press, we have the bottom line on another Leftist Lie: China holds the future of the U.S. economy hostage because China is the number one holder of U.S. debt.

    Not. True.

    Oberndorf believed the Leftist Lie as well. Knowledge is a beautiful thing:

    Up until a couple of days ago, I thought this was true. Then I read an article [in the Wall Street Journal] by David Bond, editor of Silverminers, a silver mining industry publication out of Wallace, Idaho (Silverminers). In it he listed the 15 largest holders of America’s debt. China was only third, with $895.6 billion. Second is holders of U.S Savings bonds – that’s you, me, our kids, and grandkids – totaling $1.458 trillion. The debt held by the #1 lender is a massive, economy and budget crushing $5.351 trillion is held by…our very own unauditable, unaccountable, untouchable, privately held Federal Reserve.

    They are the ones profiting inordinately from the ever-growing interest on the national debt, not the Chicoms. They are the ones manipulating the currency and interest rates, driving our debt ever upward, our economy ever downward. They are the ones who will reap even more massive “windfall profits” from raising the borrowing cap. And they are the ones who the Democrat “leadership” refuses to audit, or apparently, even monitor.

    Bond cites the top 15 U.S. creditors from a CNBC report:

    Canada, which we always held as infinitely more sensible, turned up in the Top 15 for the first time. We owe Canada $3.6 billion. Coming in at 14th is Hong Kong, at $138.9 billion. We owe the Cayman Islands’ banking centers $146.3 billion. Twelfth is Brazil; we’re into them for $184.4 billion. We owe OPEC $210.4 billion. We owe the insurance industry $261.8 billion. We owe domestic commercial banks and credit unions $269.8 billion, making theirs our 9th biggest I.O.U. The Brits and our own state and local governments are tied for 7th place at $511.8 billion each. We owe mutual funds $637.7 billion and pension funds $706.4 billion.

    Are we beginning to see a pattern here? This thing is beginning to go logarithmic. We owe Japan $877.2 billion. China ranks a measly third: they’ve been shedding U.S. debt like crazy, converting it to stuff we used to do, like mineral and oil production, but they’re still just a hair shy of a trillion, $895.6 billion to be precise.

    The last two surprised us. Holders of U.S. Savings Bonds, and a category CNBC calls “other investors” rank No. 2, at $1.458 trillion.

    And the Number One I.O.U.? Drum roll, please: it is our very own United Snakes Federal Reserve Bank, which has us on the hook for a staggering $5.351 trillion! That’s right. We owe the Banksters in our own midst interest-bearing debt more than five times what we owe the Chinese we’re always sniveling about.

    You see, while the U.S. Treasury admits that China is the largest foreign holder of debt, at the same time, it conveniently leaves out the rest of the story.

    RBO also has an article up on the WI poll – has Gov. Walker gone too far?

    knuckleheads. scary mathematics tactics.

  19. Hey Sleuth, your not being very nice. Don’t let our fake president get to you. He is not worth it. We are going to figure this out and expose him.

    • Hey Sleuth, your not being very nice?????^^
      huh? Sleuth is alway’s nice, and helpful to all here. Not sure what your referring to so will now mind my own business….! just odd remark is all..

      • Kathy is referring to Sleuth’s comments on another thread — off the top of my head, I can’t remember which post. lol but I didn’t think Sleuth was being bad, just trying to get all to make clear concise points re research. Then again, I wasn’t on the receiving end, this time 🙂 .
        I don’t mind Sleuth, you reminded me of an old editor I had in college — get the facts ma’am, get to the point lol.

    • Sleuth is our best buddy and has been here “from the beginning”!! And last, but definitely NOT least, she is “our sleuth” !!! Love to All here at We!

      • ((((((((((((Peach))))))))))) Such big hug’s to you!!! you are so missed here, hope all is well…much love to you!!

        • OK, my last love fest for awhile ! (((((((((Leza))))))))) Huge hugs for you and your sweetheart who work so hard and you still find time to do soooo much info-research ! Praying daily for you and yours ! May God bless you and your family always ! Thank you for all you do and your kind remarks. ! Miss all you guys ! Hurry up and wait here! You know how it goes ! Keep up the great work, patriots !!
          “Pray for me (and all of us) that I/we may have boldness to speak what I/we must speak”. God Bless the USA and Israel and our troops!

      • I must admit I got a chuckle out of Sleuth cracking the whip — you make a great editor Sleuth, “you the boss” — you can crack your whip on me anytime 🙂 .

      • Hugs to you from me too Peach — you may not recognize me.
        Kathy is good, Peach, not to worry — she’s just being a mom trying to put ointment on the ouwwwwiiiieee. And Sleuth is pop/boss, trying to keep us in line lol. ((((Hugs to all of you))))

    • I didn’t mean to be mean to Sleuth. I agree with most of what she said, it was just a little short. Especially for someone who may be trying to help (like me) who does not know much about research. I’m sorry Sleuth. Hugs

      • Kathy, you are doing just great helping out around here.

        If we are going to do research we have to do good research and try to verify what we find. The use of official documents and court case filings are good ways to find out more and to verify the information we find in our research.

      • Welcome to both of you….Kathy and Anoni ! I am trying to catch up…down and away for quite some time and a little more to go. Thank you both sooooo very much….as I review past posts, both of you have really found ALOT — WOW ! Great job! No harm…we all MUST stick and stand together now. Just ‘protecting’ one of my best buds! Perhaps we do not recognize each other due to ‘name changes’ from “the other place” !!

        WTPOTUS ROCKS !!!!!!!!
        Love to All Patriots !!

  20. Constitutional Principles
    Questions Concerning President Obama

    Tuesday, July 06, 2010
    Snip –

    The Unfolding Truth

    Imagine if it were ever proven that Obama is ineligible to be president. A Constitutional crisis would surely erupt. Every law and Executive Order signed while Obama was acting as president could be invalidated.

    Every day we witness another assault by Team Obama to alter our country and grow a culture of dependency. From coercing corporations into adopting progressive policies, to politicizing the census, to seeking to make millions of illegal aliens into voting citizens, to establishing an Internet Kill Switch, to abolishing talk radio, to Cap and Trade, to ObamaCare, the list goes on. The implications of these schemes are grave for freedom loving people everywhere. In Obama’s Alinksyite world, the end always justifies the means. It just comes with an alibi and a smile.

    Obama’s runaway spending and anti-business policies could be to purposely driving the nation into bankruptcy. The U.S. economy is already staggering under a mountain of debt and unfunded liabilities. Could Obama’s end game be to sabotage the U.S. and world economies in order to collapse them and create the New World Order that progressives have long sought? We may soon find out. There is already talk of a single world currency as the value of the dollar erodes.

    In summary, Barack Obama played down his radical past to appear moderate. Everything the man stands for and has ever done, however, is some deception or lie. He promised to transform our nation with a fresh start. In the time since we have known this man, however, it is clear that his only answer to anything is more government control. He will say or pretend anything to advance that goal.

    The president and his socialist brethren are intent on undermining our allegiance to the U.S. Constitution. In 2008, the people were duped into voting for a con man for their president. Now, our very way of life is at risk and the time to correct this deception grows short. We need to expose the truth behind the Obama Administration and its backers before it is too late.
