  1. Obama Admin Heaps Praise on Al-Jazeera, “They’re a Really Important Media Entity, We Have A Really Great Relationship With Them”
    April 17 Snips

    Why am I not surprised one of the most anti-American networks in the world is loved by the Obama regime?

    “They are a really important media entity, and we have a really great relationship with them,” said Dana Shell Smith, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for international media engagement, who speaks Arabic and has frequently appeared on the channel. “This administration has empowered those of us who actually do the communicating to be in a close relationship with Al-Jazeera. They understand that the relationship can’t consist of complaining to each other about the differences we have.”

    The emir of Qatar come by the Oval Office today, and he owns Al-Jazeera basically,” Obama said in remarks recorded by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. “Pretty influential guy. He is a big booster, big promoter of democracy all throughout the Middle East. Reform, reform, reform. You’re seeing it on Al-Jazeera.”

    • This would explain why I found a nasty article about Trump written by a US Progressive in the Al-Jazeera paper today. So a so called US journalist or whatever you want to call him is now getting paid to write for the anti-American Al-Jazeera while Obama makes nice with the boosters of terrorism.

      Donald Trump: Potential president?
      The reality TV star and businessman may get into politics, and his views are distasteful, writer says.
      Cliff Schecter 18 Apr 2011

      “Little Donnie Trump, the dumbest kid in the class.” This only somewhat facetious refrain was proffered on a day when Trump had said something particularly insane, by a friend of my parents who attended school with The Donald when they were just boys.

      Trump is a potential presidential candidate who has most recently hitched his hairpiece to Birtherism, or the slightly-less-clever-than-a-comb-over theory that President Obama only plays an American president on TV.

      • Tidbits on ole Cliff who is now writing for the anti-American media: Cliff Schecter is the President of Libertas, LLC, a progressive public relations firm, a regular contributor to The Huff Po. He was seen on MSNBC often. [There are You Tubes to see this guy]

        Clifford D. “Cliff” Schecter (born 1971) is an American political writer, commentator, and operative. [Interesting word choice!] Schecter is considered to be a political progressive; best known for penning a book highly critical of 2008 Republican Presidential nominee John S. McCain, he has a reputation as a pugnacious advocate for progressive politics and policies. Schecter is married and lives with his wife and family in Columbus, Ohio.

        …He spent the 1996 campaign cycle working on the firm’s behalf for their biggest client, Democratic President Bill Clinton. Having helped secure the President’s successful re-election to a second term, Schecter left Penn & Schoen to join a master’s program at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs.[A Hotbed of Communists!]

        In April 2008, Schecter published his first book, The Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don’t Trust Him And Independents Shouldn’t. The book, which …. broke a number of highly controversial stories, all of which McCain’s campaign stoutly denied. The most controversial story featured McCain calling his wife Cindy a “c@@@” in front of reporters and aides at the end of a long day campaigning for re-election in 1992. The McCain campaign responded by calling Schecter a “trash journalist” and “unstable”.

    Internet Sales Tax to be Introduced in US Senate
    April 17, 2011

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) could propose sweeping legislation as soon as Monday to tax all online purchases, in a move aimed at closing states’ budget shortfalls.

    Durbin’s bill, dubbed the Main Street Fairness Act, is being portrayed as an end to the tax holiday that online shoppers on major internet vendors have enjoyed for years.

    Durbin’s current bill is the second iteration of an identical one last year that never made it to the floor for a vote

  3. Cuban Dissidents March Despite Castro’s Warning
    Monday, 18 Apr 2011

    NEWSCORE – Cuba’s highest-profile dissidents marched Sunday defying President Raul Castro’s warning, issued hours earlier, that foes of the communist regime were not welcome on Cuban streets. “Our fight has been and will continue to be achieving freedom for political prisoners,” said Laura Pollan, leader of the Ladies in White group of political prisoners’ kin, as the group took to Havana streets, AFP reported. [They march every Sunday].

    …just hours earlier the president addressed the rare Cuban Communist Party Congress, putting political foes on notice that they would not find a public space or openness to anti-regime ideas.

    “Defending the independence of the achievements of socialism, and our squares and streets, will continue to be the duty of all Cuban patriots,” [Raul] Castro stressed.

  4. Obama’s faith adviser helped craft ‘perfect Islamic state’
    Shariah project scrubbed from Internet, sought to ‘implement’ Muslim caliphate

    April 17, 2011

    JERUSALEM – Dalia Mogahed, appointed to President Obama’s faith advisory council, was a partner in an Islamic project whose stated goal was to “define, interpret and implement the concept of the Islamic State in modern times,” WND has learned.
    The project was founded and directed by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the controversial Muslim cleric behind the proposed 13-story, $100 million Islamic cultural center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in New York City.

    Besides her role on the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Mogahed is also on the advisory council of the Department of Homeland Security. She testified before the Senate on engagement with the Muslim community. Together with Rauf, Mogahed was a leading voice in the Leadership Group on U.S.-Muslim Engagement, which issued a 153-page recommendation paper, obtained and reviewed by WND, that calls for dialogue with Hamas.

    The consensus focused on improving America’s relationship with Muslims globally, with many of the recommendations later reportedly being adopted by the Obama administration. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Dennis Ross, Obama’s Mideast envoy, also served on the Leadership Group that released the recommendation paper.

  6. AZ Jan Brewer Vetoed the Birther Bill! She is talking to Greta! She had been the Secretary of State for AZ.

    This bill is a distraction and we need to get on with the state business.”

    She also vetoed the bill that allowed guns on college campuses.

    Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the Arizona “birther” bill tonight.
    The Tucson Sentinel reported:

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill Monday that would have required presidential candidates to provide their birth certificates to appear on the ballot, and another that would have allowed guns to be carried on school grounds.

    Brewer also vetoed a bill that would have directed the governor to set up an alliance with other states to regulate healthcare, in a challenge to the federal government.

    HB 2177, the “birther” bill, “creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona,”
    Brewer said.

    Evidently, asking candidates to follow the Constitution is too much of a hassle for Governor Brewer.

    • You must be kidding me ?….I do not want to say what I am thinking….

    • I am stunned, totally stunned! Saying the bill was a distraction, and she said it with a straight face. She is writing a letter to the AZ legislature about her decision. That will be interesting to read. Did the Federal government threaten her by saying she (AZ) wouldn’t get federal funding for other projects? They already removed border patrol funding that was for only one year and they didn’t renew it.

      This is incomprehensible! Will the other states now cave too?

      • No, it cannot be. There has to be a reason or something in it that worries her. I was so proud of her. It just cannot be. I thought she was a hero ? I looked more and found these bits.

        Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said, “I do not support designating one person as the gatekeeper to the ballot for a candidate, which could lead to arbitrary or politically motivated decisions.”
        I agree w/ her on this point completely. There is another part too.

        Susan Walsh, AP
        Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said, “I do not support designating one person as the gatekeeper to the ballot for a candidate, which could lead to arbitrary or politically motivated decisions.”
        “In addition, I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for president of the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth to submit their ‘early baptismal circumcision certificates’ among other records to the Arizona secretary of state,” she said. “This is a bridge too far.”

        Soooo…I have no problem requiring other records of birth proof for Prez. I could care less if circumcision is one of them or not.
        I do not get it… this what she feels uncomfortable with ? those tiny things can be fixed. Can someone fix them tomorrow please ? If she wants them neater, give them to her neater. Tomorrow please.

    Obama 49%, Trump 34%

    President Obama leads Donald Trump by 15 percentage points in a hypothetical 2012 match-up, but the president is unable to top the 50% level of support even against an opponent some are deriding as a joke.

  10. Poll: Economic Crisis Batters Obama, Could Doom Re-election
    19 Apr 2011

    The darkening economic cloud has sent President Barack Obama’s job performance ratings plummeting to just 47 percent — just 1 point higher than his lowest ever mark — according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    And his economic approval ratings are his worst since September, when he stood at 41 percent approval and 57 percent overall disapproval.

    In the event that the White House didn’t receive the message, Wall Street drove the point home on Monday when benchmark rater Standard & Poor’s cut its long-term outlook on U.S. debt to a dismal negative rating, signaling a financial crisis if the Obama administration does not bring down the national debt.

    Today’s poll shows that Americans agree with the S & P verdict. In a tie with his overall worst economic approval rating, 57 percent said they disapprove of how Obama is handling the economy, with 46 percent saying they strongly disapprove. Only 23 percent strongly approved.

    ‘Let me finish my answers’ Obama Loses His Cool With Texas Reporter
    April 19, 2011

    • Just watch Barry’s face from 2:05 to about 2:10, if you watch nothing else. It’s priceless. Notice how much he blinks while being questioned, but as soon as he’s ready to lay into the interviewer, who actually asked him tough questions like a real journalist and a good reporter does, Barry stared wide-eyed, without blinking. Look at the body language: Raised eyebrows. Bared teeth. GLARING at the guy. You don’t have to be a body language expert to see complete and total AGGRESSION, ANGER, RAGE. Talk about IMPERIOUS. Barry perfected that in front of the mirror, as a child, when he had little adoptive sister Lia pretend to be a minion to his Suharto-dictator impersonation. I have to quote Farrakhan here: “Who DOES he think he is?”

    The story calls it a “seemingly obvious rule.” DUH! Who ever thought before the housing crash that banks weren’t ensuring that borrowers could pay back their loans? Thanks to Barney Frank, the obvious became obscure.

  15. Birth Certificate Book Promises Explosive Revelations
    By Atlas Shrugs on 04/20/2011 – 8:18 am

    Interesting how one mainstream guy (Trump) could blow the whole birth certificate issue wide open. It took years (like Obama’s millions in foreign contributions) – both stories Atlas was first on – to get legs, a stunning indictment of the failure of the ‘free press.’ The questions has always been, why not just show the long form? Bah dah bing, bad dah boom.

    Wed Apr 20 2011 10:35:52 ET **Exclusive**

    This year’s high stakes publishing project quietly went to press this week, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
    After years of research and digging by the nation’s top private investigators, here it comes:
    “WHERE’S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.”
    The street date is a LONG month away, and author Jerome Corsi, the man who torpedoed John Kerry’s presidential dreams with SWIFT BOAT, has gone underground and is holding his new findings this close.
    “It’s utterly devastating,” reveals a source close to the publisher. “Obama may learn things he didn’t even know about himself!”
    Does Corsi definitively declare the location of Obama’s birth?
    Will the president’s attorneys attempt to interfere with the book’s distribution? [The publisher vows to vigorously fight any legal action that may be taken.]
    Will the book finally — once and for all — put an end to the growing controversy?
    Or will it just ignite new ones!?
    “When Donald Trump said he sent PIs to Hawaii to get to the bottom of all this, he meant this book,” declares an insider.

    [THE CASE ranked #1,341 on AMAZON’s hitparade late Wednesday morning.]


      UPDATE: And this from Atlas, September 2008: And this, Obama admits dual citizenship: From Obama’s site – “Fight the Smears”, courtesy of Annenberg-owned

      “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

      Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4,1982.”

  16. Does Tennessee have a terrorist problem besides having a corrupt judiciary?
    Muslims Demostrate at Tennessee Capitol In Support of Sharia (Islamic Law) and Terror Funding
    April 20 Snips

    They should be protesting against the sharia (Islamic law.) They came to America to get away from the oppressive and brutal system of governance, did they not? or did they come to impose it?

    Muslims rally at Tennessee Capitol to protest legislation
    The Tennessean, April 20 (hat tip AB)

    Several hundred Muslims thronged the state Capitol on Tuesday in protest of legislation that they say takes aim at their religious beliefs, calling on the bill to be defeated. Muslims from across the state — many wearing traditional skullcaps and headscarves — packed a committee room and corridors to hear testimony on a bill that supporters say would help Tennessee stop terrorist plots but opponents believe singles out Muslims who adhere to Islamic law.

    They urged lawmakers to withdraw the bill, or at least to delay it until it can be rewritten so that groups labeled as terrorist organizations can protest the designation before they are forced to shut down.

    The first version of the bill, which was written by an Arizona organization critical of Islam, labeled Shariah “a legal-political-military doctrine and system” that requires its followers to support the overthrow of the United States government. Several Muslims who turned out Tuesday said that is a distortion.

    “People have this idea that Shariah is just chopping people’s hands, but Shariah is a way of life for us,” said Arshia Shah, a lawyer originally from Britain who now lives in Sparta and came to the Capitol with her husband and two daughters. “It’s prayer. It’s how we deal with our spouses. And to tell people that they can’t practice this — that they’re doing something wrong — is a great concern.” The bill has since been amended to remove all references to Shariah and Islam.

    The bill’s sponsors, House Speaker Pro Tempore Judd Matheny, R-Tullahoma, and state Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, say the bill gives Tennessee law enforcement agencies the ability to disrupt terrorist plots. They also say it could be used to disrupt street gangs and neo-Nazi groups, as well as terrorist organizations.

    • We know how they deal with their spouses and it’s against OUR law. You want sharia? Go back to the home of your “religion”. This is America. You live under our laws and if you can’t, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

  17. How the Australians are seeing the BC problem. A Different view.

    Mother of a battle over certificates
    Jill Singer , Herald Sun – Melbourne, Australia
    April 21, 2011 12:00AM

    Too many parents manufacture family secrets that threaten to emotionally devastate their children.

    Surrogacy lawyers in Australia now go so far as to advertise that India is a good spot to buy surrogate mothers and donated eggs because the country will list the commissioning parents on birth certificates. While this might ease the way for new parents, it also poses heartache for their children down the track. Many parents start off with the intention of one day telling the children the truth, but it can all become too hard.

  18. They are pulling out all the stops on the Left. Now a heartfelt story by this author Janny Scott (, a reporter for The New York Times, went on leave in 2008 to write “A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother,” from which her article in this issue is adapted.

    Two years to should be a doozy…with no verifiable information, I can see why it would take two years to fabricate the woman’s life.

    Obama’s Young Mother Abroad
    April 24th (yes, dated the 24th..this must be a preview! Oops they corrected it quickly. Now it is the 20th, but it is still in the URL!)

    Photos will be in photos above. Enlarge them at site ..note Ann’s Arm or two arms or hands. This family suffers from malformations.

    • OMG, B. More photoshopped photos for your Fab Family photo gravure. Too funny. What are these people smoking? His “lithe” figure? Gag me.

  19. No mention of Seattle and the U of Washington. Huh. This will take some time to digest.

  20. “He has the manners of Asians.” Well, tell that to the Texas journalist he just GLARED at so viciously and ordered about so imperiously. Yes, he has such wonderful manners. No clue how to treat others who are his equals or betters and NOT his inferiors. This is America, Barry, not class-conscious Asia.

  21. It really does seem like little more than a rehash of stuff that’s in his fake autobiography, published before by asshat “journalists”, with a bunch of romantic travelogue-like mishmash added in, along with memories of people who didn’t specifically know “Ann” and “Barry.” Maybe some new information about the Soetoros and the brother-in-law who got Lolo his oil company job. Wait! Did we ever hear that Madelyn visited Indonesia?

    • Gag me with a stick over just the first paragraph! I guess he inherited the nose in the air!

      She met the camera head-on, dressed in hand-loomed textile dyed indigo, a silver earring half-hidden in the cascading curtain of her dark hair. She carried her chin a few degrees higher than most. His right hand rested on her shoulder, lightly. The photograph, taken on a Manhattan rooftop in August 1987 and e-mailed to me 20 years later, was a revelation and a puzzle.

      She is corn-fed, white-bread, whatever Kenya is not.

      • Where’s the photograph, I ask? Where is it? Wouldn’t you think she’d put it in her article? And doesn’t she mention a letter, too? Where is it? Wait, it was an email, but she should publish that, too. Gee, I’d love to see a contemporaneous letter in Ann’s handwriting. But maybe it was hard to write with two hands on one arm.

        Corn fed, indeed! She barely spent any time in Kansas and people in the Midwest do eat things other than CORN. Earth to asshat, elitist, would-be authors: We in the Midwest eat whole wheat bread, too. You know what, we can buy it at Whole Foods! Shove your corn and white bread where the sun don’t shine, lady.

        • ROFL — That’s a knee slapper…”shove your corn and white bread where the sun don’t shine!”

          She invented a story around Barry’s story. I wonder if she spent time reading all of the translations we’ve done. Somethings were mighty familiar. I wonder how many quotes from Barry’s book were used.

          She might want to get that book out before it is found that Ann wasn’t the mom and Barry wasn’t related. Sure could happen. That sure would be a waste of two years and lots of imagination ..and interview of what 200 people! Let’s find TWO even Three that knew Barry as a kid.

          • I can’t wait to find that book at bookstores and look at the references and bibliography. Ten to one, all sources will be Barry’s books, interviews with Barry’s “friends” (the lying ones we already know about), Barry’s “family” (such as they are and who are still living), and stories written by the usual suspects–the asshats who have been helping promote his bogus biography from day one.

            Don’t you get tired of reading that line about white girl from Kansas? I swear if I read it once, I read it a thousand times in a thousand different sources. Talk about propaganda. It’s more “out there” than the fable of George Washington and the cherry tree. It’s BOGUS, people. A LIE. The entire biography. He admits it in the introduction/preface. Can’t you people READ?

          • Yea, they got the goat herder and Kansas thing down pat. Too bad they couldn’t get the year his parents married, where he was born, when SADOS died, how many times he visited Africa, and when, the day Auma was born, the years he attended Columbia, etc., etc., etc.

            I see Auma is out with a book now. Obama and his family are quite the authors. Need a past? Write a book!

            • They’re all fictional “memoirs” with composite characters, dicey timelines, and made-up conversations. They have to be because when liars weave a web of lies, even they can’t keep track of all details of their various fables and myths. Goodness knows that we can’t, and we’ve been trying for years–to make sense of their lies, I mean.

  22. “Saman said that when Barry failed to finish homework sent from Hawaii by his grandmother, Ann ‘would call him into his room and would spank him with his father’s military belt.'”

    His FATHER’S? It occurs to me that maybe Lolo found little Barry when he was sent to New Guinea.

  23. Ok. I should be getting ready for Easter but instead I’m reading this article. You’re going to get sick of my comments.

    Saman, the servant, doesn’t mention Lia, does he? Hmmm.

    It’s been told and retold many times before, with a few new details. But some names. We’re supposed to believe that Ann “typed” little Barry’s homework. In the ’60s, in backwards Indonesia? If nothing else, it probably made the other kids hate him for being a prig.

    Ann was “hefty” and dark haired. But didn’t others who knew her as a neighbor describe her otherwise? Tall and blond? Hmmm. Oh, and she kept her chin up in the air. Just to make us think she’s like her “son”, you see. Oh, and poor little Barry was such a victim of racism, even though many of the people in Indonesia are as dark if not darker and have kinky hair, too. So you come to the end of the article and this writer interviewed Barry for her story. Now there’s an uninterested, unbiased source.

  24. OT: Soooo much happening, constant whirlwinds of attacks from multiple directions….most, as devastating as the horrible tornadoes and the victims left behind and those people and liberties we HAVE and ARE LOSING much faster than many people really realize. As everyone here knows, we are under attack from outside and from within.

    The police state, laughed about by most for years, is just a step away from your door. I, and a few others, can attest to that; i.e. Michigan can stop you and take your cellphone (without reason or warrant—4th Amendment come to mind?) and download ALL DATA…see THE for latest. And, we are fighting and arming foreign nations who seek to destroy us…..whiskey, tango, foxtrot moments…too many to list…..the “net” ain’t big enough to hold the info! Yes, I know all the different ‘reasons’ for war….but could someone tell me again WHY she really had to die????

    The following brave soldier was killed along with four other comrades by a multiple grenade attack by Afghan National Army soldier!!!!???? Please pray without ceasing for the people of our great USA to return to/find their belief in God so that he will have mercy upon our children!
    Staff Sgt. Cynthia R. Taylor, 39, of Columbus, was one of five soldiers killed at Forward Operating Base Gamberi in Nangarhar province when an Afghan National Army soldier attacked them with multiple grenades, according to the Department of Defense.

    Taylor, who died on Saturday, was assigned to the 101st Special Troops Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division based at Fort Campbell, Ky. Taylor joined the Army in 2003. She had received a Bronze Star and Purple Heart, among other medals. She is survived by a daughter and a son.

    Also killed in the attack were Capt. Charles E. Ridgley Jr., 40, of Baltimore, Sgt. 1st Class Charles L. Adkins of Sandusky, Ohio, Sgt. Linda L. Pierre, 28, of Immokalee, Fla., and Spc. Joseph B. Cemper, 21, of Warrensburg, Mo.

    On that page at this time or check home page of….note…..Horrible attack by over 20 teens on Marta by ?? B.F.P.L. ??—-Rap group if googled, myspace suggests gang term “bank first play later”…(there’s that doggone irony again) or……!?

    Are you kidding me? Clean out the “top dogs” at the “big houses” who twiddle their thumbs and pens and attend special dinners first before you start messing with our men and women who sacrifice in all conditions we here in “the safe zone” (lol) cannot fathom!

    Silly scenario, I know…we’ve spoken about this before, but how about this potential employee talking to potential employer!
    Employer: “I see on your resume, Mr. binladen, that you don’t have but a small amount of experience in our area but you insist that you are a dedicated and hardworking person. And forgive me, but your last name sounds a little familiar; should I know you?”
    Potential employee: “Oh, don’t let that name fool you. I’m nothing like my daddy…please believe me. I’ll fit in just fine here and make you very happy.”
    Employer: “No problem…we don’t really need to know who BOTH PARENTS were/are. Your job does affect the whole nation, but we will give you a CHANCE.”

    Sorry for my long rant ! This all really gets to be wayyyy toooooo much for me sometimes!

    God Bless the USA and Israel.

  25. Vile Far Left University of Iowa Prof Tells Republicans to F**k-Off in Mass Email [then lectures on civility in a note of apology]
    Jim Hoft , April 20, 2011, 3:26 PM

    Dr. Ellen Lewin felt it necessary to respond to a mass email sent out by the College Republicans.

    The Iowa Republican reported:

    A University of Iowa professor felt the need to reply to a blast email by the College Republicans on Monday morning. Ellen Lewin, a professor of Anthropology and Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies in the Department of Gender, Women’s & Sexuality Studies, sent a vulgar response to a College Republican email about the group’s, “Conservative Coming Out Week.”

    The College Republican email, which was sent to the entire University of Iowa Community, had been approved by a number of university officials before being sent out.

    Lewin responded to email by writing, “#*@% [F-Word] YOU, REPUBLICANS” from her official university email account. [It was sent as a REPLY ALL...]

    Snip [Her Apology]
    In an email to the College Republicans, Professor Lewin wrote, “This is a time when political passions are inflamed, and when I received your unsolicited email, I had just finished reading some newspaper accounts of fresh outrages committed by Republicans in government. I admit the language was inappropriate, and apologize for any affront to anyone’s delicate sensibilities. I would really appreciate your not sending blanket emails to everyone on campus, especially in these difficult times.”


    • What a heartfelt apology. You, the Devil, made me do it. What a phony baloney fool. I hope she gets fired. Wait! Is that a government funded entity? Official university email used for what? Political purposes? To sent out obscenities? To insult the parents of all her students who may happen to be Republican taxpayers who pay her freaking salary? So in writing to the College Republicans, she was writing to STUDENTS? Well, I wonder if they’d allow a professor outraged by the actions of a usurping, ineligible, Marxist POTUS to insult the “college progressives?”

    • Delicate sensibilities ? Delicate ? What riff raff is this person ? She has no clue to the word delicate. She is a foul mouth with a vile temper that needs a pink slip and an escort off campus.

      political passions are inflamed ?
      Really ? She looks way too inflamed to be on a campus. Get rid of this vile, garbage person. She is supposed to be educated and conduct herself professionally ?

      Dr. Ellen Lewin

      Doctor ? What a laugh. I am a NASA rocket scientist then…. Doctor….? Guess they just do not make them like they used to. Fire this vile mouth. Who would want this person teaching our youth ? GROSS.

      Looks like that is way too much for her to handle…..
      oops her mask fell off… is broken now….
      Wondering who gave her a job there. That was really BAD judgement…..

  26. Georgia Becomes First State to Sign Anti-Obamacare Health Care Compact Into Law …

    Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed the health care compact into law today. The law restores authority and responsibility for health care regulation to member states. The law allows Georgia to create their own health care policies by joining an interstate compact that supersedes prior federal law (Obamacare).

    UPDATE: Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter [Idaho] signed an executive order on Wednesday that prohibits receiving federal funding for or otherwise implementing the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

  27. Two US Journalists Killed in Libya
    April 20, 2011

    MISRATA, Libya – Two US journalists were killed in Libya Wednesday, the Business Insider reported. The website reported that Tim Hetherington — who was nominated for an Oscar this year with co-director Sebastian Junger for “Restrepo,” a documentary about US troops in Afghanistan — was killed in Misrata along with fellow photojournalist Chris Hondros.

  28. Chinese Spies: The Legacy of the Obama Administration
    April 19, 2011 by Kevin “Coach” Collins Snips

    Last week brought yet another reminder of the deceitfulness of the Chinese Communists. The people to whom Barack Obama has entrusted the fate of our nation are stealing the design secrets of what is left of our auto manufacturing base. And all the while Obama is borrowing more and more money from our “friends” in Beijing.

    Last summer, a Chinese couple was caught stealing hybrid engine secrets from General Motors when they attempted to sell them to a Chinese automaker. That General Motors is jointly owned by the Obama administration and the United Auto Workers Union cannot be overlooked in this case.

    With the data in question worth an estimated $40 million at face value — and possibly many times that in potential worth to whomever possesses it — people must ask why it would be so easy to steal this information.

  29. Obama’s crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine
    By Michelle Malkin • April 20, 2011 08:42 AM Snips

    All the president’s funny money

    Ka-ching, ka-ching, ka-ching. President Obama’s perpetual campaign cash-o-matic machine kicks into high gear again this week as the celebrity-in-chief heads to Hollywood for several high-priced fundraisers. But while the Democrats’ 2012 re-election team stuffs its hands into every liberal deep pocket in sight, questions about the Obama 2008 campaign finance operation still fester.

    Last week, the laggard watchdogs at the Federal Election Commission announced an audit of the Obama 2008 campaign committee — which raised a record-setting $750 million. White House flacks are downplaying the probe as a “routine review.”

    But there’s nothing routine about the nearly $3 million Obama has spent on legal expenses to address federal campaign finance irregularities and inquiries. Roll Call reports that Obama’s campaign legal fees have exceeded all other House and presidential campaign committees, including members of Congress under ethics investigations.

    There’s nothing routine about the whopping $6 million that Team Obama has refunded to individual donors since Obama took office.

    And there’s nothing routine about the 26 warning letters to Obama for America totaling “more than 1,500 pages of questions and data that outlined compliance concerns — including the longest one ever sent to a presidential candidate,” according to Roll Call.

    Among the Obama 2008 campaign committee’s shadiest transactions that have gone unpunished: continued


    The broad presumption in Washington is that Donald Trump’s quasi candidacy will be a disaster for Republicans.

    Certainly the reality host with the cantilevered coiffure could cost Republicans the presidency in 2012 if he is serious about running. If Trump goes all-in, develops a core following in the Republican primaries and then runs a well-funded spoiler campaign as an independent in the general election it could make the difference in a swing state or two.


    April 20, 2011 Poll: Romney neck and neck with Obama; Trump… far behind

    A McClatchy-Marist poll released on Wednesday shows Mitt Romney in a statistical deadheat with President Barack Obama. Obama leads Romney, 46 percent to 45 percent.

    Mike Huckabee was the second-most competitive Republican polled, trailing Obama 48 percent to 43 percent, also a large improvement from the January poll, in which Obama led 50 percent to 38 percent.

    However, other potential Republican candidates do not fair as well. Despite Donald Trump’s recent media spotlight and self-generated presidential buzz, the real estate tycoon trails Obama 54 percent to 38 percent.

    • I don’t care about Romney because he’s the selected one–not the choice of the people. He’s little more than another RINO and I don’t even care if the Dems fear that he can beat Obama. I’m sick of having to hold my nose and vote for a media-selected, RINO old guard-selected “moderate” so-called conservative. Everybody said that Obama would do one thing for conservatives–bring us back to our roots. Our roots are not Democrats in Republican clothing. We want a REAL choice. A REAL person, not another elitist little rich boy.


    Donald Trump will apparently be making a big political announcement on the May 22 season finale of Celebrity Apprentice. No, he won’t be saying whether or not he’ll be running for president, but instead he’ll supposedly be revealing the future date upon which he actually will announce whether he’s running for president. But let’s save everyone some time and get it over with now: He won’t be. He has never seriously considered a run for the White House. It was all a gigantic ratings stunt, a negotiating ploy to get NBC to cut a bigger paycheck when the time comes to sign up for another season of his suddenly popular again TV show. At least, that’s the only theory that makes any sense to us — and we’re not alone.

    “We at the network have no idea whether Trump is serious about [running for president] or not,” one NBC exec tells EW. “He won’t tell even us — and we haven’t pushed because we’ve just decided it is whatever it is. If he wants to spout off about things, we’re happy to let him. But our inclination is that he’s not serious about running for president. We think it’s a stunt.”

    • Aw, gee. I was waiting for election day so I could hear Trump tell the apprentice POTUS, “YOU’RE FIRED!!!!!”

    • And we should listen to NBC and think they have any sway over the majority of people? I think NBC is a stunt themselves. NBC has been in the tank for Obama and covered for him since pre election. Why would Trump tell the Leftists what he is up to anyway? A good indicator of NBC’s slant was the article produced by one of their journOlist writers about Dr. Fukino. Do find a negative article about Obama that originates from NBC.


    “While I won’t rehash all of the issues here, I will note, for the record, that the left started the birther issue (and continually attacked McCain) and Obama is also a McCain birther as he co-sponsored the Senate Resolution declaring McCain a natural born citizen–clearly understanding the difference between being a US citizen and being a natural born US citizen and its importance.

    Now that that’s out of the way, I’ve been watching the brouhaha that Donald Trump is causing and he is not backing down–that’s obvious. But during these interviews, it makes me wonder why the MSM so aggressively attacks anyone who even dares come close to this issue–even now–after they seemingly put it to rest. What are they afraid of–what might they find? ”

    We are right, and we can guess what they are afraid that Trump will find: The lamestream media are LAME and Barry is a FRAUD.

  34. What if the Birthers are right?
    April 20, 2011 by SusanAnne Hiller

    Inside the political vacuum, the headline story on Drudge was none other than Obama’s birth certificate. It’s the story that just won’t go away–and it won’t go away until Obama himself releases the long-form document. But with the coming release on May 17 of Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the Birth Certificate”continued questions will either be answered or remain inconclusive. However, no matter what the media says about the issue, people are curious as Corsi’s book hit the Amazon charts hard and fast today.

    While I won’t rehash all of the issues here, I will note, for the record, that the left started the birther issue (and continually attacked McCain) and Obama is also a McCain birther as he co-sponsored the Senate Resolution declaring McCain a natural born citizen–clearly understanding the difference between being a US citizen and being a natural born US citizen and its importance.

    Now that that’s out of the way, I’ve been watching the brouhaha that Donald Trump is causing and he is not backing down–that’s obvious. But during these interviews, it makes me wonder why the MSM so aggressively attacks anyone who even dares come close to this issue–even now–after they seemingly put it to rest. What are they afraid of–what might they find? And was Oprah wrong again?

    Another question that I’d like to float: Is Obama intentionally withholding his long-form birth certificate to continue to perpetrate the notion that those who question him are crazy giving the media more ammo against the birthers and the right? It wouldn’t surprise me, but with Corsi’s evidence that may not be the case.

    Finally, has the MSM, out of its allegiance to the Democrat party, missed the biggest story in the history of this country? And one thing you can be assured, the left will dissect and fact check Corsi’s book until the pages fall out, but will they be able to defend their position on the record? What they do with the information in Corsi’s book will probably need an extra large bucket of popcorn with butter because dare I ask this: What if the Birthers are right?


    Not sure if I can post these links correctly. Anyone here have opinion about these two links and how they may correspond in topic? It’s that “watch the other hand” kind of thing with this gang of thieves.
