Dunes Sagebrush Lizard - WildearthGuardians


Question of  the Day:   

Drill Oil and Save Jobs or Save the Sagebrush Lizard? 

Can you believe that there are multiple meetings taking place in New Mexico and West Texas over the  Sceloporus arenicolus better known as the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard?  I say the lizards are known, but in reality they are only known to those people who deal with reptiles, such as zoo keepers,  and those who might have a specialized degree that includes the study of  lizards,  a few environmental groups,  the EPA, and U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife.    Yet we are all now going to learn about the habitats of these small brown, 2  1/2 inch creatures, and how giving them their right to life is going to affect the species called  human beings.

This latest nonsense is coming from the EPA who has been pushed into action by the Center for Biological Diversity, Albuquerque, NM, specifically Jay Lininger, an ecologist.    The U.S. Department Fish & Wildlife has been considering the lizard for the endangered listing since 2001.   It appears Lininger’s lengthy report to the government is affecting their decision.

The lizard’s native habitat is in eastern New Mexico all the way to West Texas, and the federal agency says their habitat is threatened by ongoing oil and gas drilling and the removal of shinnery oaks for cattle grazing.  (Shinnery Oaks are a 4 – 5 ft bush that is toxic to cattle so is removed by ranchers by using a herbicide.  It is also a favorite feeding, breeding and hiding place of the lizards.)   According to Patrick Manning, “Saving the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard Could Endanger Oil Production, Lawmakers Say”   the  lizard lives off of a shrub called shinnery oak in the Permian Basin, which cuts through New Mexico and West Texas — and is also one of the richest resources of oil and gas in the United States.

Some organizations want the lizard declared an endangered species under federal Endangered Species Act,  and the result would be that  all of the working oil fields and oil wells in the areas that this lizard inhabits would be shut down.   The oil companies, its  employees and all of the states and towns involved benefit from the jobs, the taxes, and revenues that sustain the area, and contribute to the Texas economy as well as other Southwestern states.  Their livelihoods now hang in the balance because of this critter that no one that lives in the area has ever even seen.

This reminds me of the small fish controversy in CA where they turned off all of the water to the  most fertile farm land in the Valley because some organizations and environmentalists wanted to save a  small endangered fish.   Why didn’t they take that endangered fish to a special area and let them produce by themselves?  Why didn’t they give those fish their own pond?  They grow other fish species  in special areas.  No instead, the government closed down the water to an entire farming area.   That decision put thousands of people out of work, out of jobs,  and negatively affected the food grown, produced and distributed to the entire U.S.   Yes, the fish won.  Humans lost.

The Fisheries and Wildlife Department have until December to make a decision as to this lizard’s classification.    Are Cass Sunstein and his ilk the people behind this latest idiotic lawsuit where the government takes the side of the lizard over the human beings who make their living in West Texas and New Mexico?  Or is this another way for the Obama regime to attack the oil companies through the back door?   Is this another attack on Texas because Texas didn’t support Obama?  Is this another form of intimidation and threats against a state that opposes Obama’s policies?

Lest you think I am against saving the environment or saving  animals and other species from extinction, I am not.  I am for saving our economy, its people and resources,  and the food sources that are affected by the purist environmentalists with a cause and whose proposed policies negatively affect the prime species – humans.  In other words, in this case, I put humans above the life of a lizard.

There is reality and illogical reality.  Whose side are you on?    It is time for the human beings with thinking brains and common sense to take over the reins  of government, and get with the programs that promote the welfare of  the only thinking species once again.    Sometimes I think that  human beings with common sense are also becoming extinct.  Perhaps they need to be  covered by the endangered species act and put at the top of the list.

  1. Sad: Judge bans Prayer at graduation

    A Texas judge has banned religious words from a high school graduation ceremony and forbids them from using specific words like ‘prayer’ and ‘Amen’ at the graduation. Are we becoming so thin skinned that people in TEXAS can’t deal with hearing an Amen?

    It sure seems like things are headed that way! What’s Glenn’s solution? “If I were in the Medina Valley school district, I would print T shirts for every single student to wear that just said, ‘Amen, bow your head, praise Jesus.’ Everyone – – if I were a student there, that’s what I would be doing. That’s an outrage,” he said.

    • One student said he would be “irreparably harmed” if a prayer was said…ONE student, so the judge went with the minority. Who really is irreparably harmed …everyone but the atheist! This is so infuriating. Religious people should rise up against the real minority, those who have no spirit that guides them! The valedictorian was going to speak on how faith has helped her through high school and of course, God and Jesus were mentioned. The judge also banned, “let us bow our heads in prayer,” the invocation, and the benediction.

      • Update: I just heard on FOX that the case was somehow reversed, and the valedictorian will be able to give her speech as she wanted. I have no details as to how this was all changed, but Governor Perry and the two TX senators were involved. I just caught the tail end of the news.

        • How can they infringe upon the valedictorian’s freedom of speech? I thought this had been decided. If the school itself interjects religion, that’s not allowed; but students have the right to free speech and freedom of religion. The students should have all stood up and shouted AMEN at the end of EVERY sentence spoken. Somebody probably pointed out that if this decision stood, then no future Muslim valedictorian would be able to praise Allah or wear a hijab.

    • Appeals panel overturns Medina Valley graduation prayer ban
      Updated 12:29 a.m., Saturday, June 4, 201

      A federal appeals panel ruled Friday that a judge here was wrong to bar public prayers from today’s graduation ceremony at Medina Valley High School. All week, the furor over the issue had attracted activists and political players who criticized the decision and supported valedictorian Angela Hildenbrand, who wants to pray during her commencement speech.

      The AGAPE Movement, a Christian group based in Wichita Falls, announced Friday it would make buses available to transport people to the school in Castroville for a “peaceful disagreement” with this week’s ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery of San Antonio.

      Kelly Shackelford, president/CEO of the Liberty Institute, a conservative nonprofit that advocates for churches caught up in legal tangles and which represented Hildenbrand, called the ruling “a complete victory for religious freedom and for Angela.”

      Federal courthouse sources in San Antonio, meanwhile, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Biery and the court got more than 500 calls from people all over the country, demanding he change his ruling. Some callers said they would “kick his ass” or made similar threats.

      Corwin Schultz, an agnostic member of Medina Valley’s Class of 2011,…..
      and his parents [those that would suffer irreparable harm] declined comment and said through their lawyers at Americans United for the Separation of Church and State that they would not attend the graduation.

      U.S. Sen. John Cornyn had blasted Biery’s order, saying it was hostile to “all things religious in public life.” Gov. Rick Perry called it “reprehensible.”

  2. REPORT: Federal Employees Spent 3 Million Hours of Official Time on Union Activities
    June 02, 2011

    The cost of official time used by federal employees participating in union activities increased nearly 7 percent between fiscal 2008 and fiscal 2009, according to a new report from the Office of Personnel Management.

    The report, the subject of a Wednesday hearing on Capitol Hill, found that federal employees spent nearly 3 million hours of official time on union activities in 2009 at a cost of $129 million to taxpayers, an increase of $8 million from fiscal 2008.

  3. Forget Weinergate: Obama is Impeachable Over Libya
    02 June 2011 Cliff Kincaid Snips

    If you want an indication of why Republicans may lose to Obama in 2012, look at the pass they are giving him over his illegal war in Libya. Nothing is more important than committing a nation to war. The military intervention could be the basis of impeachment charges. But Republican leaders in the House—and Republican Senator John McCain in the Senate—don’t want to hold Obama accountable.

    We have pointed out that the war is illegal and that the media—and now the House Republican leaders—have failed to acknowledge the facts.·

    House leaders could bring impeachment charges. Instead, they want to avoid doing their duty.

    The Wall Street Journal reports that “House Republican leaders on Wednesday abruptly canceled a vote on a resolution forcing U.S. withdrawal from Libya amid signs” that it would pass. House GOP leaders “fend off vote on Libya resolution,” the Washington Post proclaims.·

    “U.S. House leaders pulled a bill calling for the U.S. military to withdraw from Libya after a group of liberals and conservatives said they back the measure,” UPI noted.·

    In the Senate, McCain, who has turned into an advocate for Al-Jazeera, has been an enthusiastic supporter of the war, conducted with the approval of the Arab League and the United Nations but not Congress. Al-Jazeera, committed to the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood in the region, openly backs the “pro-democracy fighters” in Libya, playing down their links to al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups.

    Obama has violated both provisions of the law. There was no direct or immediate threat to the U.S. from Libya and Obama has ignored the 60-day deadline for approval from the Congress.

    • Supposedly, two non-binding resolutions they passed yesterday dealt a “blow” to Barry [no pun intended]. I linked a story somewhere above. This whole thing is confusing. One resolution, I gather, asked for a pullout–put forth by Kucinich; it was opposed as “undermining the troops”. Inexplicably, Boehner is giving Barry 2 weeks to explain himself. “This resolution puts the president on notice,” Boehner said. “He has a chance to get this right and if he doesn’t, Congress will exercise its constitutional authority and we will make it right.”

      Apparently Barry’s argument is that if he calls war something other than “war” then the War Powers Act doesn’t apply; although, in actuality, he seems to also believe that NO laws apply to him or rulings of any court, either. It all depends upon what the meaning of war is.

  4. Official Says Top Al Qaeda Operative Killed in Pakistan
    June 04, 2011 Snips

    DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan – A top Al Qaeda commander and possible replacement for Usama bin Laden was killed in an American drone-fired missile strike close to the Afghan border, the militant group he heads and a Pakistani intelligence official said Saturday.

    Ilyas Kashmiri‘s death is another blow to Al Qaeda just over a month after bin Laden was killed by American commandos in a northwest Pakistani army town. Described by U.S. officials as Al Qaeda’s military operations chief in Pakistan, he was one of five most-wanted militant leaders in the country, accused in a string of bloody attacks, including the 2008 Mumbai massacre.

    His death was not confirmed publicly by the United States or Pakistani officials.

  5. “The point of this piece is to highlight the absurdity of the false concepts of “moderate Islam” and “extremist Islam.” There is no more “moderate Islam” than there is “moderate Nazism.” This nomenclature is willfully manipulative propaganda and must be called out and corrected whenever and wherever it is used. ”

  6. Obama’s Mounting Media Manipulation
    June 4, 2011 Snips

    A year before Obama’s outreach, Al Jazeera under Khanfar’s leadership descended to new depths of depravity when the network threw a birthday party for released terrorist Samir Kuntar, who had killed 4-year-old Israeli girl Einat Haran by bashing her head with a rifle butt after murdering her father in front of her. Professor Judea Pearl, father of martyred reporter Daniel Pearl, wrote at the time:

    In the same spirit, Al Jazeera has broadcast a mufti’s admonition that “there can be no peace with the Jews because they suck and use the blood of Arabs on the holiday [sic] of Passover and Purim,” and a debate on whether Osama bin Laden was good or bad for Islam, in which a pro-bin Laden Saudi cleric blamed the Jews, “the most despicable people…worms…all evil,” for the 9/11 attacks and urged the US to “get rid” of them. A show on the subject “Is Zionism worse than Nazism?” shared a viewer e-mail declaring, “[Jews are] the descendants of apes and pigs [who] will not be deterred unless there is a true holocaust that will exterminate all of them at once.”

    Why would Obama — who was so upset by the beating death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert in Chicago that he responded by sending Attorney-General Eric Holder there — reward Al Jazeera with increased prestige and access shortly after they honored a terrorist for beating a little girl to death?

  7. WIKILEAKS: U.S. Fought To Lower Minimum Wage In Haiti So Hanes And Levis Would Stay Cheap
    June 3

    A Wikileaks post published on The Nation shows that the Obama Administration fought to keep Haitian wages at 31 cents an hour. (This article was taken down by The Nation due to an embargo, but it was excerpted at Columbia Journalism Review.)

    It started when Haiti passed a law two years ago raising its minimum wage to 61 cents an hour. According to an embassy cable: This infuriated American corporations like Hanes and Levi Strauss that pay Haitians slave wages to sew their clothes. They said they would only fork over a seven-cent-an-hour increase, and they got the State Department involved. The U.S. ambassador put pressure on Haiti’s president, who duly carved out a $3 a day minimum wage for textile companies (the U.S. minimum wage, which itself is very low, works out to $58 a day).

    Haiti has about 25,000 garment workers. If you paid each of them $2 a day more, it would cost their employers $50,000 per working day, or about $12.5 million a year … As of last year Hanes had 3,200 Haitians making t-shirts for it. Paying each of them two bucks a day more would cost it about $1.6 million a year. Hanesbrands Incorporated made $211 million on $4.3 billion in sales last year.

    Thanks to U.S. intervention, the minimum was raised only to 31 cents.

    • Barry must not care for the well being of black Haitians.

      • Yeah, and I thought old Billy boy Clinton was down there to see that everything went smoothly.And don’t forget that Haiti has been sitting on oil and other minerals for many years and Bill has brought in many perveyors to check out properties and ports. When will Haitians themselves ever decry rape..They are always in too dependent a condition whether by the sad natural disasters or the likes of power seekers. So sad.Yeah ,Haiti is a great place for a photo-op for people like Hillary and Bill to waltz thru and show a bit of pity. And darn if that earthquake hadn’t have upset things so Bill could have kept pushing microlending and the like.

    • Speaking of Haiti and then of course birth certificates one might want to see what’s been happening to Haitians in Dominican Republic.

    A letter to Obama from Benjamin Netanyahu
    Saturday, June 04, 2011

    Dear President Obama,

    Oath Keepers warn Americans to prepare for economic collapse
    Launch Operation Sleeping Giant to wake up veterans to danger

    Oath Keepers, the association of current serving and retired military, police, and fire-fighters who pledge to defend the Constitution, is now warning that America is at serious risk of an economic collapse. Oath Keepers is urging all veterans and dedicated citizens to prepare for that event at the individual, local, and state level in order to preserve our Republic.

    As WND previously reported, Oath Keepers rocketed to national attention in 2009 after issuing their “Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey.” Oath Keepers also gathered on Lexington Green, Massachusetts on April 19, 2009 to renew their oaths to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    As Patrick Buchanan predicted, Oath Keepers has been relentlessly attacked by far leftist groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, which considers anyone who renews their oath to the Constitution to be “extremists,” and even by former President Bill Clinton, who demonized Oath Keepers by name, calling them a “hatriot group,” in several public speeches. Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, an Army Airborne veteran and Yale Law School graduate, responded by saying “you know you’re over the target when you get lots of flack, and when they start hurling ex-Presidents at you, that’s when you know you are really ticking off the political elites.” Rhodes added “the power elites know they can’t destroy our Republic without the cooperation of the police and military. We are messing with their muscle.” As an historic example, Oath Keepers points to the refusal of the East German military to follow orders to use force against peaceful protesters in 1989, leading to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Oath Keepers has also proven that there were National Guard units that refused to participate in gun confiscation during Hurricane Katrina.

    Oath Keepers now turns its focus to how domestic enemies of the Constitution, and their international fellow-travelers, could use an economic collapse as a pretext to scrap what is left of our Republic and impose on us a world-wide version of the Federal Reserve along with “world governance.” As Rhodes put it, “it’s not enough for us veterans to tell the current serving to obey their oath and refuse orders that would infringe on our rights. We have a duty to defend the Constitution too, and especially a duty to make sure our communities are strong enough to weather any economic storm so there is no pretext for a declaration of martial law. The current serving will be more likely to resist such orders if we are prepared and self-sufficient.”

    Oath Keepers urges veterans and patriotic citizens to focus on four key areas:

    1. Food, fuel, emergency medical, and communications security and independence (and general preparedness) – as individuals, within local veterans organization chapters, neighborhood mutual aid societies, churches, co-ops, farmers markets, and at the town, county and state levels. As a start, follow the advice on (you don’t need to be LDS to learn from their experience in food storage and preparedness, or to use their canning facilities). Grow gardens. Support your local farmers. Fight any regulation that would limit your ability to grow your own food. Why is food first? Because it is the hardest to improvise, and it is a great weakness of modern man, who, with few exceptions, no longer stores up for bad times. Ditto for fuel and medical supplies. And when it comes to communications, we must have in place an alternative system, such as HAM Radio, so if/when the internet comes down (or is taken down) we can still communicate (for example, if each VFW Hall had a HAM Radio, that would provide a state-wide network).

    2. Physical security and Independence – again as individuals, neighborhoods, veterans organization chapters, towns, counties and states, to include forming neighborhood watches; mutual aid associations; a volunteer sheriff’s posse (staffed by self-supplied volunteers but under direct command of the sheriff); and county militias established by county ordinances but staffed by self-supplied and self-funded volunteers (as is done in volunteer fire departments all over this nation); state defense forces under command of the governor; and ultimately, a true state militia, established by state statute, capable of “repelling invasions” (using the research and model bills of Dr. Edwin Vieira). As for training, a great first step for the newbie or for those who are rusty would be to attend the Project Appleseed rifle instruction program, offered for a pittance in every state by traveling volunteer instructors. See for details.

    3. Economic security and independence – as individuals and communities, including barter networks, use of silver and gold as real money, and sound money bills at the county and state levels (as Utah just passed). This would also include each of us having a “liberty trade” – something you can do even in a very localized, back-to-basics economy, and we must support and build resilient local economies that can weather hard times. We must have an alternative to the fiat money system in place when it collapses, so we can resist what the globalists have in store for us next. See for details.

    4. State sovereignty and nullification of unconstitutional federal laws and actions. Veterans must support only sheriffs, local and state legislators, and governors who have the knowledge, courage, and integrity to keep their oaths. To vote for an oath breaker, is to become an oath breaker. We must enforce the bounds of the Constitution and defend the powers reserved to the states and to the people (see the Tenth Amendment) by supporting state sovereignty resolutions and nullification of unconstitutional laws. See Likewise, we must defend the inherit power of the jury to judge the law as well as the facts and to acquit even in the face of the law (jury nullification). See And eventually we must kick the bums out of DC and replace them with citizen legislators, as GOOOH recommends. See

    Oath Keepers asserts that Americans should be doing all of the above anyway, because that’s what it means to be a free people in free, sovereign states, in a constitutional republic, but it is especially crucial as we face the prospects of a coming economic collapse. You can help Oath Keepers spread the message to all veterans and all Americans, and turn the tide.

    Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes explains the vital two part mission of Oath Keepers, and especially the responsibility of veterans:

    Message from Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes:

    What the elites have planned (as the Chairman of the IMF have openly stated) is to replace the dollar as the reserve currency of the world (which has already begun), and replace it with IMF Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), as an interim step on the way to a true world currency. So, when the corrupt Federal Reserve system they created collapses, the elites intend to replace it with a world-wide version of the Fed, with a world-wide fiat currency. If you think it is hard to end the Fed now, or even to audit it, imagine a world wide version, under a system of “world governance” that is even more remote, unreachable, and un-answerable to the people. If we submit to this, it will be the end of American sovereignty and independence, and the end of our liberty. Frankly, it will be the end of America.

    When the Fed fiat system collapses, we MUST have an alternative, sound money system in place as an alternative to their “final solution.” What is that alternative? Nothing less than what we are supposed to already have under our Constitution. The Constitutional system of sound money and state sovereignty is still there. We just need to get back to it, and rebuild the institutions of a free Republic we have allowed to atrophy and die away. And WE must do it. The politicians and judges in DC won’t do it. It will be up to We the People in our local communities and states to do it, from the bottom up, not the top down.

    If we reach veterans fast and “reactivate” them, with their leadership we can get our neighborhoods, towns, counties and states squared away so we won’t be weak and desperate when the fiat money system crashes. The stronger We the People are within our states, the less pretext there will be for “martial law” during a crisis and the less likely the current serving military and police will be to go along with it.
    The more wide awake and prepared the veterans are, the more they can lead their neighbors in weathering the storm without sacrificing liberty on the alter of temporary security. And the veterans can lead the people in standing up and defending the powers reserved to the states or to the people (see the 10th Amendment), resisting the liberty crushing plans of the political and financial elites who intend to use chaos as an excuse to scrap our Constitution and national sovereignty once and for all.

    *A word to non-veterans: We are all in this together, and we appreciate and welcome the commitment of non-veterans to stand for liberty and the Constitution. This mission is focused on waking up the veterans because they are a key part of our population who have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and they are people who have had vital training and experience in dealing with and planning for worst case scenarios. Just as in the days leading up to Lexington and Concord, they are a high-percentage audience when it comes to making a difference in the struggle to preserve liberty for our children. With them awake and on board, we can turn the tide.

    To veterans:

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” — Thomas Paine

    Each of you veterans has undergone the fatigue of supporting freedom. Unlike others in the population who have never risked anything for their country or for liberty, you have. It is what sets you apart from others. Unlike others, you have not just talked. You acted. You stepped up, put your feet on that line or in those footprints, raised your right hand and took that oath. And then you served, willing each day to undergo any hardship necessary and willing to give your life, if it came to it, in defense of our country and our way of life.

    It is time, once again, for you to stand up, step up and undergo the fatigue of supporting freedom. We are honored to call you brother, and we welcome you to this brotherhood of the oath, where we each will do all we can, to the utmost extent of our power, to restore the Republic that was won and preserved with the blood of patriots who came before us. Now it is our turn to stand in the breach. We should all feel honored and privileged to have the chance to correct all of our past apathy and neglect. Yes, it is our fault that our nation is in the sad state it is in. Who else is to blame? We swore that oath. It is on our shoulders to keep this Republic, as Ben Franklin admonished us to. If not us, then who? If not now, then when? Will we leave it to our children to clean up our mess and do what we would not? You know the answer.

    As the immortal Thomas Paine also said, “if there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”

    Let us recognize and accept that trouble is on its way. As they say in the infantry, “embrace the suck.” Let us embrace and endure it now, in our day, so that our children may have peace, and freedom.

    ll Obama’s appointments and all the legislation he has signed will be null and void

    Obama’s ineligibility: Picking up the pieces after political Armageddon
    – Lawrence Sellin Friday, June 3, 2011

    It is becoming increasingly likely that Barack Hussein Obama will be forced to resign the Presidency before the 2012 election.

    Vice President Biden will also be obliged to resign, as will Supreme Court Justices Sotomayor and Kagan.

    All Obama’s appointments and all the legislation he has signed will be null and void.

    The crisis we now face is not a failure of the American experiment, but, as citizens, we have, for far too long, been silent and inattentive.

    Most of the guilt lies with a permanent political class and a grossly dysfunctional press corps, who, for reasons of complicity, negligence, avarice or cowardice, have contributed to the greatest fraud in the history of the United States.

    The permanent political class and the main stream media (MSM) have become a corrupt, incompetent, profligate, selfish and undemocratic American aristocracy.

    Even if one considers the Obama Administration as legitimate, which it is certainly not, the results have been a disaster.

    Obama and his cheerleaders in the MSM have brought our country weakness, indecision, mediocrity and ineptitude, drifting from crisis to crisis, bankrupting our country, while eroding our national will and confidence.

    We must again embrace the spirit of the American Revolution and reject the notion that a small permanent political class in a capital insulated from common sense can dictate to us their own tyrannical and flawed vision of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    The permanent political class uses its powers and taxpayer money to perpetuate itself. Contrary to their view, ours is a nation with a government, not the reverse. The political aristocracy presumes powers and extends itself privileges not granted it by the people and, at the same time, refuses any form of accountability.

    The American people have not lost confidence in themselves. They have lost confidence in their government.

    As Ronald Reagan once stated:

    “I believe this nation hungers for a spiritual revival; hungers to once again see honor placed above political expediency; to see government once again the protector of our liberties, not the distributor of gifts and privilege.”

    We now have far too many rogue, self-serving politicians dispersed throughout the highest levels of the federal government trying to maintain a corrupt status quo.

    It will now be the duty of ordinary Americans to remove that dishonest aristocracy, salvage our republic, take back our government and re-shape our own destiny.

    We must return to the letter and spirit of the 10th article of the Bill of Rights, which asserts that the federal government should execute only those functions explicitly defined in the Constitution.

    Our bloated federal bureaucracy has assumed power it was never intended to have and has exercised those powers inefficiently, ineffectively and indiscriminately.

    The fall of Barack Obama will expose the endemic corruption within our political system. Many in our political leadership will be charged with felonies. Some will go to prison.

    It will be a national trauma equivalent to the Civil War.

    It will, however, also provide an opportunity for an American Renaissance.

    In the darkest days of the American Revolution, when General George Washington’s men were freezing and starving at Valley Forge, Thomas Paine said: “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”

    We still have that power. We have the strength to renew the American dream, if we stand together.

    This lawyer Stephen Pidgeon claims Barry’s name was changed to current form from Barak Mounir Ubayd in British Columbia in 1982. Where’s the beef? 🙂

    • LOL ! The beef is in the Manure I mean Mounir Miri….

      • Well, I meant where’s his proof? He also claims Barry was born in Seattle and his father is Malcolm X. In his dreams. It’s possible that Barry was born in Canada, just the other side of the border from Seattle, maybe in a home for unwed mothers. Or if BHO Sr. claimed her as his wife, they might have got free health care for her in Canada. We’ve hashed and rehashed this so many times. Everybody has a theory. Pigeon’s is nothing new, especially if he has NO proof.

        • Pigeon was the one that found a real Barack Obama died in a plane crash overseas somewhere.

          Miri, you need to update your article with this new name. We have quite a list going!

          • Oh, yeah. I knew we knew him from somewhere. Hmmm. I wonder if he has that theory in his new book? That Barak Mounir, son of Malcolm X, took the place of the Barry Obama who died in the plane crash. Didn’t the mother die, too, in that storyline? Her aunt actually said Shirley/Stanley Ann died in 1971, until she didn’t say it. Remember? I did update the older post with this new name. Even if it’s not true, it’s still funny

    • Die Wahrheit über „Barack Obama“
      The truth over “Barack Obama”
      June 5, 2009 (Translated from German)

      The USA president and applicant on the leadership of the world government, Barack Obama, met in Dresden with representatives of the Underground empire yesterday. I still have no information about the exit of these conversations, but as soon as my contact people let approach me information, I give it further!

      Today I want to publish however highly sensitive information about its true background. I hesitated long, but because it stands perhaps soon at the tip of the world government, the truth must at the light. Obama the first USA president since William Howard Taft, that would be would stand by the way at the tip of the world government — if one sees of Richard Nixon, that the empire led at one time when the world government tried to recover its independence, and naturally if one does not count the puppet regime of the Gerald Rudolph Ford.

      During Obamas campaign, there was much excitement around its missing birth document: Agents of the Underground empire did not scatter would be born the rumor, Obama in the USA at that time. That is natural nonsense. He is to be sure Egyptian citizen and Abkömmling [descendant of an old koptischen [Coptic] family, but he came during a vacation of its parents, General Hakram Mounir Ubayd and the Ethiopian Amira Tenage Ubayd, born Zenawi,[maiden name] into Hawai to the world world.

      The original of its birth document proves this unambiguously: [Copy of old COLB]

      The small Barak grew up in Kario, but the Ubayds of spent much time in Canada where Obama by the child girl of the family, Stanley Ann Dunham, in whom language and the cultural uses of the USA was instructed. In this time, his parents changed its name in “Barack Hussein Obama” how this document proves, that I received out of the archives of the Vatican secret service: [See document below]

      The brilliant at this name change: it a very unusual name is for a future USA president. The Ubayds would have been able to give its son yes a typically American name, but selected it in that the name Barack Obama, directed you the attention of the world public of the name change off. Who would expect that this is not at all its real name? Its second first name, Hussein, became it to be sure nearly the fate. Hook ram Ubayd not at that time was able to know that the USA is with the travelers of Medina in the conflict and would be adjusted therefore vis-à-vis the Moslem world hostilely.

      The married couple Ubayd in the lybisch Egyptian war never was killed 1977 (or displaced, the corpses were found), and the sixteen year-old Obama went with its child girl into the USA where the protectorate began to construct it to the presidency candidate. The direction of the firm of its father, that it already at that time to the Multimilliardär made, delivered be is he until today most important mediator at the travelers to its cousin, that.

      That Obama terminated now its loyalty to the protectorate and strives for instead of its of the leadership the world government, is not finally because of the immense wealth of its family a serious problem: the family is networked believe with all groupings of the elite best, and some even, it could create the impossible and world government and protectorate one. But yet it did not reach laughs its goal, and only, who laughs finally, also most loudly!

      • Any particular comment you’re pointing to? We knew about Kate’s post. I, for one, think this is bogus, because of the name of the CEO of Vital Statistics (see my comment above) and that “now name” title. It sounds like a creation by someone for whom English is not a first language. These types of forms can be found on the Internet.

  13. Rep. Anthony Weiner’s car is registered in New York but way out of date
    Sunday, June 05, 2011

    After a week of facing questions about lewd Twitter photos, Rep. Anthony Weiner Saturday had more explaining to do: why his Nissan Pathfinder has New York license plates but a 2007 registration sticker.

  14. I know this is off topic but this might be something of interest.
    Sorry I haven’t commented much but still looking for things you like.

    • Thanks Greg, amazing. I have a few of those surnames in my digs……hummm…

    • Greg, nothing’s off topic on an open thread. 🙂 Thanks for the link. It’s interesting that so many of them are lawyers or academics. I wonder how THEY feel about having their right to anonymous free speech infringed upon? The worst, if true, is the lawyer who works for the IRS and the person who was at Obama’s election event. Doesn’t look good. I’ve always suspected that too many “progressives” because of their mindset (by any means necessary because they work for the COMMON good and wear the white hats) think ethics are for fools. Thus, if they have access to information that they can use to promote the “good” that they believe in, in their misguided ideology, then there’s nothing wrong with mining any database they can get their hands on, despite an indvidual’s right to privacy and any contract they signed or oath implicit in the terms of their employment. We can see this at work with the asshats who work at places like Google, who mess with search results, who bury some items and promote others, who scrub information from the Web. Same with Facebook, which, btw, I recently learned MUST practice discrimination in hiring because the average age of their employees is 31. As with far too many tech companies, the staff is disproportionately male. All that may or may not be beside my point, which is that simple demographics can explain the tendency of some who have access to databases to use them for their own political purposes, rules and ethics be damned. It’s the same with journalism. Ethics and morality take a back seat when some realize that they can abuse their power to impose their ideology on the masses. Too many journalists are progressive. A little diversity in tech companies and in journalism (and lawyers, too) is called for. And a return to basic respect for the rights all individuals have in this country–rights endowed by our Creator. End of rant for the day.

    Just go to the bottom of this site and notice the archive box for this person is missing.And reading thru all these I see where it says other files are missing. I had been trying to see if I could find B. Sr. in any archive pertaining to Mboya prior to the more recent writings .No where , so far in old writings can I find where O.Sr. is signifigant. I read where the guy that killed Mboya confessed, the trial did go for a few days,but never see where O.Sr. testified in the case. It was sort of a done deal it looks like on the guy , so why the need for O.Sr. to testify. I just keep thinking that O.Sr. is tied to Mboya in the more recent writings just in order to connect him to someone important, that Africans and most Americans find virtuous.If O. Sr. feared for his life during this time and the guy had already confessed I don’t see why he testified(no proof he did so far). Several other storys on Mboyas death and also the footage of it that you all presented here never show Barack Sr. anywhere mourning Mboya like the many other Luo.Several storys describe Mboya’s day before and day of his death and barack Sr. is nowhere in this picture. Two people even decribe the town to be quite quiet that Saturday . The stories decribe him as leaving the treasury office and parking in front of the pharmacy, then into the pharmacy and chat with the pharmacy owners, but never is Barack in the story or your videos. If anything ,I find that signified his connection to this man is that perhaps O. had more communist leanings not in line with Mboya. I read a speech awhile back given by Eleanor Roosevelt explaining to Students about the new foreign students and the knowlege gained from each other. She tells that we can benefit from many of these new students ,as many have already studied in the soviet Union and learned foreign languages and are helping teach in the classrooms. Well, can’t prove it but is it possible that is what B.Sr. was doing in a Russian class ; or why we can’t exactly locate where he was for a spell between highschool and Hawaii in 1959? Anyway these archives I was hoping to see where Irving Brown was funneling CIA money thru Paris to Mboya because I came across an important date concerning the two of them(still can’t find why); which was Aug.4,1961. Just thought if I could find why that date was of importance it might shed light on why Obama has picked or used that date as his birthdate. Then of course I see here as you can see . Just can’t have some info. where it may relate to Obama.

  16. Miri, it should concern even liberals if someone in the IRS is attacking citizens on their off time and mostlikely using their gov position for info. Look at what they did to Joe The Plumber? Can you imagine if this happen under Bush, the media would be going crazy! Love you all!

    • It should concern everyone, but it seems there’s so much apathy in the general public, or else they’re dispirited because they believe We the People are helpless in the face of this progressive juggernaut, or else it’s because nobody KNOWS this stuff because the complicit media doesn’t even report it.

      Weiner’s situation is similar: Brian Williams, according to Bernie Goldberg tonight, stated he wasn’t going to cover “Weinergate” because there’s so much more important stuff to cover. It doesn’t rise to the level of seriousness Williams demands. However, just tonight, Williams devoted as much time on his nightly newscast to Palin’s alleged “mistake” about Paul Revere as he did to Weiner’s confession. Keep in mind that Sarah Palin is NOT currently in office, is not even announced as a candidate to office. Yet Weiner IS a sitting Congressman, who it’s reported by Drudge actually proposed bills to keep children safe from sexual predators on the Internet!

      How does Williams know that no recipient of Weiner’s nude pics were under age? How does Williams know that Weiner didn’t use public resources? How does Williams know, or doesn’t he care, whether or not Weiner is subject to blackmail?

  17. Senator: Obama lizard agenda undercutting economy
    Says proposed protections for reptile could disrupt Texas oil patch

    June 18, 2011 Snips

    A small brown spiny striped lizard is causing a Texas sized controversy for those concerned about how conservation efforts could damage the economy. And now there are accusations that protections proposed by the Obama administration are being pursued to undercut the economy in the Republican-dominated state.

    Possibly the most affected landowner in the Texas area is the board of regents of the University of Texas system, which has property in Andrews and Crane Counties. UT owns over 2.1 million acres of land in Texas, with 75,000 acres that might identified as habitat for the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard.

    The university lands function as education trust lands making up the Permanent University Fund. Income is used to back higher education in Texas. The Permanent University fund is valued at more than $12 billion and gives sums larger than $500 million every year (through available university fund distributions) to UT and Texas A&M.

    Texas Sen. John Cornyn filed an amendment to the Economic Development Administration reauthorization bill that would stop the Sand Dune Lizard from being placed on the Endangered Species List and exempt it from the Endangered Species Act of 1973. If the Obama administration has its way, this scaly political pawn will land on the Endangered Species List, without sufficient supporting research to back up the move, and effectively bring new and existing oil and gas production in parts of Texas and New Mexico to a screeching halt,” said Cornyn.

    • Bridgette: I came here to post this but you beat me to it! Congrats! This proves yet again that our own Bridgette is EVER on the cutting edge and WND too often plays catch up. 🙂

  18. The Honor of Leftists and Conservatives
    By Bruce Walker
    June 18, 2011 Snip

    A good society is constructed only on a foundation of honorable people obeying a Blessed Creator. This does not mean we do not sin; we know all too well that we sin. Bush had a serious drinking problem, which he licked. McCain called the failure of his marriage the greatest failure of his life. Leftists, however, do not just sin, but lie about sinning and corral others to lie for them. The left believes lying is okay and sin is a “private matter.” That is why Blago, Edwards, and Weiner are all in the news these days and why the six Republicans in New Hampshire recently will never face those problems.

  19. Will there be an outcry if someone nominates Rubio as VP? He is not a Natural Born Citizen!

    Don’t Worry, Be Happy: Rubio-Kyl in 2012

    June 18, 2011

    His two-year challenge of a popular sitting governor over ObamaCare and the failed stimulus was masterful. No other conservative politician in the country ran an error-free campaign (except perhaps the illustrious Jim DeMint).

    Rubio solves the GOP problem on immigration. He stands strong for border security. He is the embodiment of everything we say we believe about immigrants. We want them to be legal, loyal, and laboring. We want their kids to learn English. All this and more, Marco Rubio’s remarkable parents did.

    If Barack Obama wins 67% of the Hispanic vote again in 2012, we lose. It’s that simple. Marco Rubio can build the new conservative majority based on values. Life and marriage, faith and family — these are bridge issues, not wedge issues.

    • From comments… do we have any verification of this information?

      Patriotny [Moderator] Today 07:56 AM :
      Rubio’s father did not attain U.S. citizenship until 1975, 4 years after Rubio was born in America. And Jindal’s parents – both of them were still citizens of India when he was born here in America. You should really do your homework on the “natural born citizen” issue. They are both U.S. citizens, they are NOT U.S. “natural born citizens.”

      • It’s hard to find information about Rubio. I believe that it’s true that both of Jindal’s parents were here on green cards as resident aliens when he was born, so not a natural born citizen because BOTH parents were citizens of India.

        This explains WND’s recent report about Mel Martinez’s take on Barry’s ineligibility (which to him is eligibility):

        Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla.: “Presidential candidates are vetted by voters at least twice – first in the primary elections and again in the general election. President-Elect Obama won the Democratic Party’s nomination after one of the most fiercely contested presidential primaries in American history. And, he has now been duly elected by the majority of voters in the United States. Throughout both the primary and general election, concerns about Mr. Obama’s birthplace were raised. The voters have made clear their view that Mr. Obama meets the qualifications to hold the office of president.”

        So apparently Martinez thinks the only qualification necessary is being elected!

      • “Senator Marco Rubio’s Lack of Natural Born Citizenship Update
        27 May 2011:

        See PDF copy of the Sep 1975 Petition for Naturalization for Mario Rubio, father of Senator Marco Rubio who was born in May 1971, more than 4 years before his father elected to become a U.S. Citizen and renounce his Cuban citizenship”

        • Thanks Gordo! Now we have a CLEAR and VALID answer! No, Marco Rubio is not qualified to run for president!

  20. Dunes Sagebrush Lizards- Another Spotted Owl Fiasco?
    July 27, 2011 Snips

    We were told that spotted owls were disappearing because big bad timber companies were cutting down old-growth forests. So the environmental movement rushed to the forests, hugged the trees, and issued news releases to decrying the evils of the logging industry. Save the owl. Save the trees. Kill the timber industry. As a result of the hysteria to save the ‘endangered’ owls, US timber sales were reduced by 80 to 90 percent, forcing saw mills to close, loggers to go broke, and the literal disappearance of entire towns that depended on the industry.

    Yet, almost twenty years after old-growth logging was banned on most federal lands to protect the owls, their numbers are vanishing faster than ever.

    Should fossil fuel companies even threaten an obscure lizard or bird, the EPA or some other federal agency will pounce on them.

    What about wind turbines which are killing between 75,000 and 275,000 birds per year? The US Department of Justice does not press charges in these cases and there is no hue and cry from environmental organizations about the ‘green energy’ bird deaths.

    Robert Bryce sums this up very well, “When it comes to protecting America’s wildlife, federal law enforcement officials have a double standard: one that’s enforced against oil, gas, and electricity utility sectors, and another that exempts the wind power sector from prosecution despite years of evidence involving hundreds, even thousands of violations of two of America’s oldest wildlife protections laws. This same statement applies equally well to environmental groups who ignore the wind industry kills yet applaud the fines levied on oil and gas companies for bird deaths.
