Fame’s Eternal Camping Ground (Open Thread)

Arlington National Cemetery, Washington DC

 © Miri WTPOTUS Memorial Day, 2012

The bloodied sun sinks in the west
And lights us all with glory;
Here sleep the brave in honored rest;
The bugler tells our story;
O dulce et decorum est pro patria mori;
O dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.

Go tell the people, passer-by,
Read the stone before ye,
Tis sweet and fitting that we die
For our country’s glory;
Obedient to your will we lie
Pro patria mori;
O dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. …

Marian H. Neudel, 1990

Cemetery in the Pacific WWII – NARA

The muffled drum’s sad roll has beat
The soldier’s last tattoo’
No more on life’s parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few;
On Fame’s eternal camping ground
Their silent tents are spread;
But Glory guards with solemn round
The bivouac of the dead.

Theodore O’Hara, 1847

Almighty God,
You loved humankind into being
and you bless us now with each precious moment of life.
Our hearts are grateful for your loving faithfulness.
Grateful, too, are we for the millions of loving acts
that blossom from human hearts around us every day

On this Memorial Day
help us to remember, with deepest gratitude and awe,
the extraordinary men and women who, out of love, gave their lives
to protect our beloved country and preserve our liberty.

Keep these fallen heroes in your loving care.
Help us to be ever mindful also of the wounded heroes in our midst
who, with valorous hearts, risked their lives that we might prosper
and that our children’s futures be secured.

    • I checked the names and none have been mentioned on the blog. I know when I searched for Obama in newspaper archives, the name Obama came up a lot and those people were from Japan. There is a city in Japan called Obama as well as there being Obama families. The search would often pull up OHama as well and the OHamas are from Japan.

      Interesting time frame. I wonder what race Antoine Adams is.

      • That IS interesting to keep in mind for future reference. Half Japanese and half (perhaps) African-American U.S. serviceman? An Amer-Asian born in Spokane to a non-citizen mother? But if so, why hide the truth? Only reason I can think of is that he had already gone out on a limb with his bogus biography written by Bill Ayers.

  2. Trump is getting the issue front and center again! But they still don’t talk about NBC – which is a constitutional issue.

    Greta talked to Trump tonight – and he thinks calling people birthers is condescending. There are Millions and millions of people agree with me – if you look at his college records it may say something, he said. I think it is really important that Obama said he was born in Kenya in the 1990’s when he wasn’t running for president. He believes it would be a really good issue for Mitt to use.

    Greta asked, Is there some evidence that Obama could produce that could change Trump’s mind – “Good Solid Proof!” is what Donald said.

    In addition, Hannity was calling for Obama to release his college records.

    Trump is getting the issue back into the news! I hope that someone gets the videos of those shows.

    Also on O’Reilly’s, Mary Elizabeth Hamm and Juan Williams were on. They were talking about the meme that Obama uses for taxing the rich which are only 3% of the population. O’Reilly called it a total con by Obama, and Juan agreed. What was more interesting is that Mary said she was sort of outnumbered being on with two LIBERALS. In other words, she believes good old Bill is a liberal. O’Reilly didn’t correct her statement.

    Then Trump was discussed on The Five too! They showed George Will calling Trump an ignoramus. Trump also called George dumb. (I think it is a tweeting war!). Will Trump bringing up the issues hurt Mitt?

    Is a turn about occurring on Fox?

  3. Wolf Blitzer spars with Trump over birther comments: ‘Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous’

    Donald Trump, de facto leader of the so-called “birther” movement, called into “The Situation Room” on Tuesday for what quickly became a testy interview with Wolf Blitzer about Trump’s continued skepticism over the authenticity of President Obama’s Hawaiian birth certificate.

    Trump, in Las Vegas to host a fundraiser for Mitt Romney on Tuesday, took issue with Blitzer’s introduction and a CNN report that ran before the interview, both of which asserted that Trump, real estate mogul and reality show star, is standing by his birther comments. Trump claimed he agreed to do the “Situation Room” interview to talk about jobs, China and OPEC; Blitzer said there were no such ground rules.

    “You know that’s what I’m here to talk about, and I thought your introduction was highly inappropriate,” Trump said. “But that’s OK, because I have gotten to know you over the years.”

    Blitzer then presented Trump with Obama’s birth announcements that ran in Hawaiian newspapers.

    “Can you stop defending Obama?” Trump stammered.

    More from the heated exchange via CNN’s transcript:

    BLITZER: Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you.

    TRUMP: You are, Wolf. Let me tell you something, I think you sound ridiculous, and if you’d ask me a question and let me answer it.

    BLITZER: Here’s the question, did the conspiracy start in 1961 where the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and the Advertiser contemporaneously published announcements that he was born in Hawaii?

    TRUMP: Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefit because of getting so-called born in this country. Many people did it. It was something done by many people even though they weren’t born in the country. You know and I know it.


    • CNN’s transcript of the entire conversation – great disclaimer. It is worth reading to get the full flavor of the conversation and it is too long for a comment.

      CNN Transcript
      Donald Trump Interview
      Aired May 29, 2012 – 16:04 ET

      Snips –
      TRUMP: Obama does not like the issue on where he was born. His own publisher, as you know, using his words, said he was born in Kenya and he lived in Indonesia. Of course, now he’s denying that, amazingly.
      TRUMP: And I will tell you, it’s not an issue that he likes talking about. So what he does is uses reverse psychology on people like you, so that you report like, oh, gee, he’s thrilled with it. He does not like that issue because it’s hitting very close to home. You know it and he knows it.

      BLITZER: I don’t know it. Donald, you and I have known each other for a long time. And I don’t understand why you’re doubling down on this birther issue after the state of Hawaii formally says this is the legitimate birth certificate. He was born in Hawaii. Why are you going through all of this, Donald?

      TRUMP: Well, a lot of people don’t agree with that birth certificate. A lot of people do not think it’s authentic.

      BLITZER: But if the state of Hawaii authorizes it, if the state of Hawaii says, this is official, he was born in Hawaii on this date, here it is, why do you deny that?

      TRUMP: A lot of people do not think it was an authentic certificate.

      ~TRUMP: Now, you won’t report it, Wolf, but many people do not think it was authentic. His mother was not in the hospital. There are many other things that came out. And, frankly, if you would report it accurately, I think you would probably get better ratings than you’re getting, which are pretty small.


    • “You know that’s what I’m here to talk about, and I thought your introduction was highly inappropriate,” Trump said. “But that’s OK, because I have gotten to know you over the years.”

      Wow. Trump is really sly. Way to call someone a liar! “That’s OK, because I have gotten to know you over the years,” you double-crosser!

    • Here’s another example of Trump’s genius:

      “DONALD TRUMP, CHAIRMAN & CEO, TRUMP HOTELS & CASINO RESORTS: I thought your reporter was very inaccurate in his description. And I thought the introduction was totally inappropriate and was actually very dishonest.

      BLITZER: Well, tell us why.

      TRUMP: Well, because what he said was wrong and what he said was almost as though President Obama wrote it, but I’m sure he knows that.

      And I thought it was a very inappropriate introduction.”

      He knows it because Obama or his surrogates probably DID write it! So funny and snarky.

      • http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/05/30/Romney-To-Media-Drop-Dead

        Mitt Romney gets it, he understands the most important issue involving the media — what John McCain never got — and that’s that the media is neither biased nor out of touch, but that they are out to destroy Romney’s candidacy in order to reelect Obama.

        Romney also understands that the corrupt media plays a game with our side that I like to call “Escape Hatch.” And here’s how it works…

        What the media does is conspire together to create a suffocating narrative that puts all kinds of pressure on our side. The idea is to turn the heat up but while doing so to also offer a way out from under: “If you’ll just do what we demand,” the media says. “If you’ll just apologize or admit you were wrong or repudiate or distance yourself, this will all go away.”

        And that’s the escape hatch.

        Except, when it comes to Republicans, it’s a trap and it’s always a trap. First off, giving in to the media means fueling the narrative for a couple more days — which the media loves. It also means the media has found a chink in your armor and will hit you there again and again and again.

        Romney might have lost yesterday’s news cycle, but by staying strong, he kept it from becoming a three-day news cycle. Furthermore, by informing the media that they are only wasting time with this game, Romney probably saved himself from losing countless news cycles between now and November.

        The other way this helps Romney is that nothing angers the base more than a candidate who caves and caters to the corrupt media. Furthermore, staying on message and not being seen in reactionary mode shows steady, strong leadership — something voters appreciate even if they don’t like Donald Trump.”

        But we DO like Donald Trump because in his own way, he gets it and he stands up to the media, too. That’s why we love Sarah Palin, too. I’m glad to see that Romney is not as worried about the corrupt, complicit media liking him.

  5. Obama’s disturbing ‘kill list’ includes Americans
    Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 12:50 PM CST Snips

    For an anti-war liberal Barack Obama sure has a long list of people he has ordered to be killed. According to the New York Times, Obama – who campaigned on shutting down Gitmo because it played music too loud for terrorists – has, quote, “placed himself at the helm of a top secret ‘nominations’ process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the capture part has become largely theoretical.”

    During a discussion of an MSNBC host refusing to refer to soldiers as “heroes”, Glenn noted the hypocrisy in the media and from the left when it comes to Obama.

    “Democrats have control of the Senate, they have control of the Pentagon, they have control of the White House. They control it. Go ahead. You’ve had your opportunity to stop it. For four years you could have stopped it. They’ve done nothing. They’ve made it worse,” Glenn said.

    The NYT article notes that Obama is determined to make the “moral calculations” on who on the list meets an untimely demise.

    Some more striking details:

    It is the strangest of bureaucratic rituals: Every week or so, more than 100 members of the government’s sprawling national security apparatus gather, by secure video teleconference, to pore over terrorist suspects’ biographies and recommend to the president who should be the next to die.

    This secret “nominations” process is an invention of the Obama administration, a grim debating society that vets the PowerPoint slides bearing the names, aliases and life stories of suspected members of Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen or its allies in Somalia’s Shabab militia.

    They describe a paradoxical leader who shunned the legislative deal-making required to close the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba, but approves lethal action without hand-wringing. While he was adamant about narrowing the fight and improving relations with the Muslim world, he has followed the metastasizing enemy into new and dangerous lands. When he applies his lawyering skills to counterterrorism, it is usually to enable, not constrain, his ferocious campaign against Al Qaeda — even when it comes to killing an American cleric in Yemen, a decision that Mr. Obama told colleagues was “an easy one.”


    The nominations go to the White House, where by his own insistence and guided by Mr. Brennan, Mr. Obama must approve any name. He signs off on every strike in Yemen and Somalia and also on the more complex and risky strikes in Pakistan — about a third of the total.


  6. The Control Freak President
    John Ransom
    May 30, 2012 snips

    So Obama, like every good control freak, has this plan apparently.

    Yeah. That’s the first thing that should make you wary.

    It’s plan that you are probably familiar with.

    Or to put it a better way, it’s another plan that will give you kind of sick, eerie feeling, like so many of his other plans that involve top-down government planning.
    “The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) fired off a warning Tuesday to our nation and its leaders in Washington,” writes Fox News’ Gretchen Hamel. “The CBO told us that the United States of America is headed toward a fiscal cliff and that if we do indeed fall off, it will have profound effects on our country and world economy. The CBO projects that if Congress does not act to prevent coming tax increases and spending cuts, a recession is certain. The CBO estimates gross domestic product would decline by as much as 1.3 percent if lawmakers don’t act.”

    So here’s Obama’s plan to protect us all from an economy under assault by tax increases: more tax increases.


  7. Planned Parenthood adopting the ideas of the Chinese? Murder the girls! Planned Parenthood is aptly named in this situation, isn’t it! Perhaps Nancy Brinker’s group should rethink sending money to this organization. THE Congress should stop sending our money to this organization too! It will probably be another case of misspeak if the demoncRats are asked about it!

    Undercover Video Reveals Planned Parenthood Endorsing Gendercide
    May 29, 2012 at 4:54 pm by Tim Brown

    A video released form a pro-life group called Live Action is getting quite a bit of attention. An undercover woman goes into a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, TX where she received encouragement to murder her unborn child because it was a girl and she wanted a boy.


    • What’s really appalling is the blythe way this woman talks about murdering a 5-month-old unborn child, who’s totally developed–brain and all, as if she’s talking about exterminating termites. All because she’s female. As if abortion should be used for family planning. She herself seems to admit that she aborted two children for the same reason. She has 4 kids and had 2 abortions, but says she fraudulently got Medicaid so she could have the ultrasounds that determined the baby’s sex (for free) and pretended to want to sign up for birth control, which she did get but DID NOT USE, and so got pregnant again, presumably trying until she got a boy. I assume she doesn’t use birth control because she wanted more children, but of the preferred sex. Unless, by some warped religious logic, she’s Catholic and doesn’t believe in BIRTH CONTROL.

  8. Gingrich says birther claims not racist, are caused by Obama’s ‘radical’ views
    Nia-Malika Henderson at 11:30 PM ET, 05/29/2012

    LAS VEGAS — Former GOP White House hopeful Newt Gingrich, who has been accused of using racially charged language in his descriptions of President Obama, said he didn’t believe there was anything racial about Donald Trump’s false claims that Obama was born in Kenya.

    “I know that there is a desperate need to attach racism to everything but in fact I think that Donald Trump said what he said because it’s the right thing for him to say,” Gingrich said to reporters in the lobby of the Trump Hotel here. “I think that Obama creates very powerful emotions about him, largely because of the radicalism of his views. I think that’s the key fact.”

    Trump’s widely discredited claims about Obama’s birth certificate overshadowed GOP front-runner Mitt Romney’s message on the economy last Thursday, yet Gingrich said that it’s a media-driven story.

    “Nobody runs around saying whether Colonel [Allen] West was born in the United States. He’s an African American you know. He’s a congressman. Nobody runs around and says was Tim Scott born in the United States. He’s a congressman. He’s an African American,” he said. “So the idea of asserting that any charge against Obama somehow manages magically in the media to get back to racism, I think is just one more device to protect Obama.”


  9. Holder to brief black pastors on campaign 2012

    May 29, 2012

    So on a partisan, probably unconstitutional, discriminatory basis, Eric Holder’s Dept. of inJustice will selectively brief (on the taxpayers’ dime and in our buildings?) a group of BLACK religious leaders on how they can campaign from the pulpit for BARRY while skating by the laws concerning their tax-exempt status. The IRS and ACLU will attend, too:

    “Attorney General Eric Holder, the IRS, and the liberal lawyers at the ACLU will brief several hundred pastors in the African American community on how to participate in the presidential election — which the Congressional Black Caucus chair expects will help President Obama’s campaign.

    “We will have representatives from nine denominations who actually pastor somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 million people, and we’re going to first of all equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501c3 status with the IRS,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Mo., told MSNBC today.

    “In fact, we’re going to have the IRS administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we’re going to have the lawyers’ organization from around the country, the ACLU — all giving ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do,” he noted.

    Cleaver said they would not tell pastors which candidate to support. They will let them know who to regard as the bad guys, though (hint: not Democrats). “We’re going to talk about some of the draconian laws that have cropped up around the country as a result of the 17 percent increase in African American votes,” Cleaver said, describing voter ID laws as a form of Jim Crow-style “poll tax” on seniors and black voters.”

    He’s going to work for “his” people, just as he said. Imagine if John Ashcroft had called together WHITE religious leaders to personally school them on how to campaign for GWB from the pulpit. Front page news at the NY Times? This is our government deliberately engaging in racial discrimination and partisan politics, perhaps even on our dime! How can Holder possibly justify this? If it’s “educational”, then why are Jewish rabbis and Catholic priests and Protestant ministers who happen to be WHITE excluded? The Blaze covered this, too: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/eric-holder-and-irs-administrators-due-to-advise-hundreds-of-african-american-pastors-on-how-to-best-participate-in-2012-election/

  10. Two from Screwy Louie: He says Allah will bring down America’s skyscrapers unless She SUBMITS and that the WHITE Mexicans aren’t real Mexicans but that the evil white Americans stole a huge chunk of Mexico from … wait for it! The blacks who were in Mexico before it was Mexico. This is likely a reference to that racist meme that the Olmecs were really black. Nothing like antagonizing people you expect to vote for your guy.



    He works overtime to earn that label “screwy”.

    • Interesting, he also writes about Jarrett, and Aaron Klein discussed her on Fox and Friends this morning as being the de facto president. I added an article below where she is discussed.

      I wonder who the demoncRats are that are working against Obama. An old senior democrat that would walk out of her office and was visibly shaken up by Jarrett? Jarrett didn’t want Fast and Furious affecting Obama – really, why. Maybe Jarrett knows something about Fast and Furious and knows how far it reaches. Would she be implicated?

      Obama is only interested in the Drones and his kill list.

    This is scary: A blogger is blamed for death threats made against a convicted bomber. The judge obviously did not understand how Google alerts work. When the “victim” received a Google alert that he himself SET UP, then he alleged that constituted harassment by the person who wrote the post that initiated the Google alert! You can’t make this stuff up. Hopefully, the guy will appeal.

    • This is the guy that is in prison that Michelle Malkin wrote about, Kimberlin. Yet the guy he was harassing, Walker, is the one handcuffed. The judge didn’t get or understand the problem apparently.

    • Heard of SWATtings? – Will he or those reporting be arrested? Are these hate crimes?

      Saturday, June 9, 2012
      Northwoods Patriots – Eagle River, WI Snips

      Most of you have probably never heard of Brett Kimberlin. That’s quite understandable because most of our team had never heard of him either… until this week. You see, Brett Kimberlin, also known as the “speedway bomber,” recently began organizing coordinated attacks on conservative writers. Kimberlin is using the legal system to shut down free speech and he’s doing so effectively.

      There is another sinister angle to what Kimberlin and his eThugs are doing. They’re now organizing SWATtings against bloggers. In essence, someone calls the police to report a shooting in a conservative blogger’s home, then a SWAT team shows up and arrests the blogger at gun point.

      This harassment is illegal and is aimed at completely shutting down opposing opinions. And unfortunately, there are judges willing to go along with it.


      • Some in Congress are calling for an investigation into this. I’d never heard of this horrible tactic until these incidents. It’s got to be a serious felony. Making a fake call to 911? And then hoping that the cops shoot the blogger? Surely that’s the goal. It isn’t only harassment. It’s a violation of the victims’ fundamental civil rights. These are felonies and the bloggers themselves have cause to file civil suits against the perpetrators. Of course, first they need to get law enforcement to investigate and find the perps.

  14. A member of the Congressional Black Caucus joins the Republican party:
    Artur Davis, Former Black Caucus Member, Switches to GOP

    I wonder if he knew Barry at Harvard Law?

    “On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again. I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country. You have also seen me write that faith institutions should not be compelled to violate their teachings because faith is a freedom, too. You’ve read that in my view, the law can’t continue to favor one race over another in offering hard-earned slots in colleges: America has changed, and we are now diverse enough that we don’t need to accommodate a racial spoils system. And you know from these pages that I still think the way we have gone about mending the flaws in our healthcare system is the wrong way—it goes further than we need and costs more than we can bear.

    Taken together, these are hardly the enthusiasms of a Democrat circa 2012, and they wouldn’t be defensible in a Democratic primary. But they are the thoughts and values of ten years of learning, and seeing things I once thought were true fall into disarray. So, if I were to leave the sidelines, it would be as a member of the Republican Party that is fighting the drift in this country in a way that comes closest to my way of thinking: wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities.”

  15. Fox & Friends Guest On Valerie Jarrett’s Influence Over Obama: She’s The ‘De Facto President
    by Alex Alvarez 10:17 am, May 30th, 2012

    On Wednesday, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy spoke with The Amateur author Edward Klein about senior adviser Valerie Jarrett‘s “mysterious hold” over President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

    “She had unique power for somebody working inside the White House,” said Doocy.

    “We haven’t seen anything like this in modern presidential history,” said Klein. “One person who is the best friend of the First Lady and the soulmate of the President, who is the last person to leave the Oval Office after a meeting, goes upstairs to the family quarters, has dinner with the President. Goes on vacation with them. Has his ear. Is de facto president of the United States.”

    “Wow, that’s big,” said Doocy. “Well, let’s talk about her resume. Does she have the resume to have this job?”

    No, she doesn’t,” replied Klein. “But what she does have is the trust of Michelle Obama, number one, whom she hired in Chicago, and the President, who uses her as his gatekeeper.”

    Doocy then noted that, in his book, Klein writes that Jarrett “has also been responsible for much of the incompetence and amateurism that have been the hallmarks of Obama’s time in office.” Referring to the mission resulting in the successful capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, Klein said that “this is the one time that the President, that I know of, didn’t take her advice,” adding that “he did not take her advice that one time and things worked out very nicely.”

    “She’s a very, very liberal person,” he continued. “And she, for instance, urged him to put that mandate on church-related organizations that were required to give free health care for contraceptives. This was against the advice of Joe Biden, the vice president, against the advice of Bill Daley. Bill Daley brought Cardinal Dolan into the Oval Office to try to get the President to reverse himself. And when Valerie Jarrett heard that, she went to the President, blew her stack and Bill Daley was shortly ushered out.”

    “More powerful than the chief of staff,” said Doocy. “Isn’t that something?”

    • President Obama on Valerie Jarrett

      “Valerie is one of my oldest friends. Over time, I think our relationship evolved to the point where she’s like a sibling to me..I trust her completely.”

  16. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/05/30/Romney-Surrogate-Fights-Back-Against-Birtherism-Fixation-By-Media

    There’s video there of John Sununu handling obot Soledad O’Brien so well that I have hope for the media to FINALLY get their comeuppance from Romney’s people. He actually tells her she ought to be ashamed to take and repeat the Obama WH talking points! It’s right at the start of the video.

    • The former governor of NH did a great job of making Soledad look stupid, and she was a little tongue tied when he said she should be embarrassed to be carrying Obama’s water because she was using the identical talking points. There were snickers in the background. Also it was interesting to see Margaret Hoover from FOX on that panel at CNN – Has she gone over to the dark side? Or is she from CNN, like Greta is?

      I saw an article that said that there were 27 liberal commentators at FOX! It didn’t say how many conservatives there are – but it seems FOX has been leaning left. The morning group of Doocey etc., are conservatives, along with Bret Baier, and Hannity – but who else? I’ve forgotten the names of the two on at 9 a.m – and as soon as I publish this comment, I will think of their names. I guess I would have to add 4 out of 5 on The Five. So I am up to 11 that I know of that swing right. Where is the fair and balanced?

      • I don’t think it’s very hard to make her look stupid. Actually.

        Hoover is so annoying that she belongs there at CNN, if not MSNBC. She’s about as conservative as Megan McCain. Who also belongs there. Or at MSNBC.

        I can think of Juan Williams, O’Reilly (according to Mary Catherine!), Beckel. I don’t watch FOX much anymore, so hard to recall the names of all of them. Geraldo! OMG. How can we forget that “Republican”?

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        Although we are far from friends I am acquainted with a person who is outright contemptuous of conservatives and is an employee of Fox News.

    • Excellent, Red Pill! Good idea to take the screen shots. Who is this Rex Nutting guy, anyway? I’m reading all kinds of bull like this everywhere. For example, today the paper claims that the EPA is pursuing FEWER claims against the oil and gas industry than under GWB. While I’m sure it’s an example of them playing with numbers (lies, damned lies, and statistics), what’s interesting is that these are supposed to be NEWS stories but are only thinly disguised Obama campaign ads that ape exactly what the WH and campaign talking points say. They also hasten to add that oil and gas production is up under Obama, but that’s only because leases issued under GWB are finally bearing fruit. And Barry disapproves most leases (and pipelines, too. In his neverending quest to make sure that energy costs “necessarily skyrocket.”) Bottom line is that the “news” is nothing more than FREE advertising for Obama’s campaign. They do no such interior defense of Romney or his policies as governor or at Bain when they report anything about his campaign.

      • I’m reading your previous post about Nutting. (Something about that name is an indication …) Anyway, he actually attributes 2009 spending to GWB? How insane is that? GWB was potus for what? 20 days of 2009? Who spent the money? OBAMA!

        The way that Nutting plays with stats reminds me of what Sununu said in response to one of the Obama campaign lying stats: That Romney didn’t create as many jobs as governor as in other states. True, but Sununu pointed out to the CNN obots that when Romney was governor, unemployment was four and a half percent! It’s rather hard to create jobs when unemployment is THAT low. Who’s going to fill the jobs? Lies and statistics.

        I might make an similar analogy. Since 2007 the DemoncRATS were in control and sending us over the cliff in our front-wheel drive car. They increased spending a LOT. Now, under Obama, with the front wheels already OVER the cliff, it’s a little hard to get more traction for speeding up their spending of imaginary money. So, yeah. Spending under Obama has “leveled off” at the DemoncRATS unsustainable level of debt and deficit spending.

  17. http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/author-to-governor-its-the-constitution/

    Corsi’s going to be on ex-governor Paterson’s radio show to talk about the constitution, after Paterson suggested that it doesn’t matter that Barry’s ineligible–he already “got away with it” so nothing else should happen. Amazing from a person who once swore to uphold the Constitution. Well, race trumps all (pun intended).

    • From that story: “Corsi also told WND an intelligence source in Hawaii who warned early last year that a forged Obama birth record would be released also is reporting a forged “original” birth certificate intended to pass forensic inspection by using 1961 materials is being prepared and could be released as an “October surprise.””

      Some surprise. It will beg the question: Why did he sent LTC Lakin to prison, then?

      It will also be more than amusing when this forensically perfect bogus document shows up and either doesn’t match the LFCOLB on the WH blog OR it does match, along with all the IMPOSSIBLE CIRCA-1961 errors on it, such as kerning and grayscale versus black letters, and letters too large for the rest of the word in which they appear!

      They do state later in the story that it WILL match the version on the WH blog:
      “The Hawaii source said ink and paper from 1961 have been secured to create an “original” document that would correspond with the digital copy posted on the White House website.”

      So what? Are they then going to argue that somehow the HDOH clerk back in 1961 got into a time travel machine and used a computer and laser printer to create ONLY Barry’s LFCOLB? But wait! Hasn’t some obot ALREADY proposed that his LFCOLB was created experimentally by some circa-1960s computer genius? I swear I’m not making it up. It’s already out there.

  18. Found this and couldn’t resist:

    The year was 1947.

    The following should clear up a big mystery that has continued until now.

    Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little more than 64 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object, (UFO), with five aliens aboard,

    crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell , New Mexico .

    This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations.
    However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948, nine months after the historic day, the following people were born:

    Barrack Obama Sr.
    Albert A. Gore, Jr.

    Hillary Rodham
    William J. Clinton
    John F. Kerry
    Howard Dean
    Nancy Pelosi

    Dianne Feinstein
    Charles E. Schumer
    Barbara Boxer
    Joe Biden

    This is the consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses.

    I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you.

    It certainly did for me.

    And now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens

  19. Just some dots . . .

    frank marshall davis was listed as one of the sponsors of the American Committee for Protection of the Foreign Born in 1960- a front organization for CPUSA.
    http://www.usasurvival.org/docs/davis.FBI.File.pdf (page 18)

    The ACPFB had regional offices, the one for the Northwest was located in Seattle. Marion Kinney was the executive secretary.

    hazel wolf also had involvement with ACPFB, she was a communist of course, and ‘a talented playwright.

    we know FMD was a communist and friends with Dunhams, who just happened to move from Seattle and the little red church, a hotbed of communism and hq of the committee for protection of FOREIGN BORN, a communist front. FMD was a sponsor of the foreign born committee and in addition likely knew hazel wolf, another artsy writer type and fellow traveler.

    also, charlene mitchell, communis pres candidate in 1968 started her activities in Chicago and met tom mboya in 1957 then spent a lot of time in africa
    “Not all the left agreed in terms of the importance of Africa. And I began to read a lot. But also, there was Alphaeus Hunton, whom I had come to know, and his interest, and his knowledge about Africa was—really showed deep. And it was at that time that Ghana was in the process of receiving its—or winning, not receiving, its independence. And Du Bois was already interested in what was going to happen there. The interesting thing about it, at that time, was the Freedom newspaper—Paul Robeson and Louis Burnham, and Du Bois was kind of part of it, but they were mainly the activists there. And that was where there was a tremendous bringing together of the struggles in Africa and those for liberation in the United States, of African Americans. So that was when I really began to see the importance of it.

    And then in, I think it was 1957, I came to New York for a meeting, and I heard about a big demonstration that was going to be held in Washington, DC, and it was in support of the movements in Africa for liberation. And the speaker was Tom Mboya. And it was really interesting because we came back and the song that we were all—it was kind of a protest song when we were marching sometimes. It’s “I want to be a Mau Mau just like Jomo Kenyatta,” and it was kind of a more militant aspect of the youth movement and the peace movement and bringing it together. Because it wasn’t taking place all over in the peace movement, or the youth movement, and we kind of saw the importance of that.”

    • so someone has a baby in 1960 but the “red scare” communist “persecutions” are still going strong so the commies are trying to stay in the closet. so, the parents for some reason can’t raise the baby. they talk to their commie friends in seattle who talk to cpusa member stanley dunham. they decide they can take the baby to Hawaii and raise it. they hook him up with (if he didn’t already know) FMD, party member in the hawaii group.

      stanley ann wasn’t supposed to raise the baby but when she married Lolo they decided she could raise the baby since she was now married and stanley and madelyn were getting old. then when the marriage didn’t work out, he went to his original guardians, stan and mad. (I personally know adoptive parents who did this exact thing – there older son got married and the wife wasn’t getting prego so the toddler was sent to them. they divorced 5 years later and the girl went back to the original adoptive parents)

      so, who are the known communist parents or parent who had to hide a baby?

        Free Breakfast for Children Program at St. Augustine’s Church. Oakland, 1969.
        10/08/2006 02:49:33 AM PDT
        OAKLAND — Early one Monday morning in January 1969, about a dozen school children sat down to a warm, hearty breakfast in the parish hall at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in West Oakland. By Friday, those numbers had swelled to 135 hungry youngsters. The free breakfasts were among the first of the Black Panther Party’s “Community Survival” programs to take root, starting modestly in the basement of St. Augustine’s and eventually spreading to all party chapters nationwide.

      Malcom’s photo is hanging n the wall. I believe Stokley Carmichael is the lecturer, but honestly, to identify one as Barry would be a stretch, IMO. The tall one standing under the archway in the center….tall, but no cigar. The chubby one to the right of him, far too chubby for that era. No one else bears any resemblance to anyone in the public eye insofar as I can tell.

      What’s your take, WAH?

  20. Bush v. Gore judge: Your evidence, Mr. Obama?
    Schedules hearing on what precedent White House has on ‘natural born citizen’
    May 31 Snips

    Klayman had cited the U.S. Supreme Court case Minor v. Happersett from 1875.
    Lewis ordered further briefing on the issue before the hearing.

    The definition of the term is critical. Such a step has not been reached in any of the more than 100 legal cases that have been brought over Obama’s eligibility since before his election in 2008.

    The U.S. Constitution imposes a special citizenship status requirement on occupants of the Oval Office. The “natural born citizen” requirement is not imposed on other federal officials. From the writings of the Founders, its apparent aim was to ensure that no person who had divided loyalties – to the United States and to any other nation – would serve as commander in chief.

    The Minor v. Happersett ruling defines “natural born citizen” as the offspring of two U.S. citizens.But since the term is not defined in the Constitution, there are many who equate being a “citizen” or a “native-born citizen” with being a “natural born citizen.”

    A hearing has been scheduled in a Florida court to allow attorneys representing the White House to support their claim that the term “natural born citizen” in the U.S. Constitution means something other than the offspring of two American citizens. Judge Terry Lewis in Leon County has set a hearing for June 18 to consider arguments from both sides of a challenge to Obama’s name on the 2012 state election ballot.

    Lewis is credited with making crucial rulings in the contested 2000 presidential election, when ultimately a Florida vote recount was halted by the U.S. Supreme Court and George W. Bush was declared the winner.
    Klayman told WND that during a hearing today on discovery issues in the case, Lewis noted that while Klayman’s brief cited a U.S. Supreme Court’s decision defining “natural born citizen” as the offspring of two citizens of the nation, the White House’s arguments provided no citations. It appears that a court ruling on the definition could be coming, Klayman said.

    Klayman has argued that since Obama was not born to two citizen parents, he is is not a “natural born citizen” as required by Article II of the Constitution and, therefore, is ineligible to be a candidate on the state’s election ballot.

    Klayman explained in his court filings that Florida’s election statutes provide broad protections for voters to ensure that the integrity of the election system is beyond reproach. One of the laws allows voters to challenge the nomination of a candidate who is not eligible for the office he is seeking. Voeltz, a registered Democrat, challenged Obama’s eligibility because the president’s father was not an American citizen.“The framers were not stupid. They understood that a president with divided loyalties could present a security and other risks for our nation,” said Klayman.
    Klayman told WND that the case is in the discovery stage in which attorneys are supposed to be able to request documents, evidence and testimony that would further refine and define the issues in dispute for the court.“Obama’s briefs [said] it would be an undue burden and expense to have discovery,” Klayman said.

    Then the judge said he wanted Obama’s representatives to cite the “authority” on which they based their argument that it isn’t necessary to have two citizen parents to be a natural-born citizen.

    On the Steady Drip blog, where contributors document progress in the Florida case, was the “bare essence” of the argument:1. The sitting president’s birth certificate is fraudulent. 2. The sitting president is not a natural born citizen, and is therefore ineligible for the presidency, because his father was not a U.S. citizen.


  21. Corsi vs. Gov. Paterson on eligibility
    Hear great debate on Obama’s background on WOR podcast
    Published: 12 hours ago Snips

    David Paterson, the former governor of New York and now a talk show host on WOR radio in the city, says “evidence is coming left and right” about Barack Obama’s ineligibility to be president.But that doesn’t matter, he says. “It just doesn’t work for me.”

    His comment came after Jerome Corsi, author of the best-selling “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama is Not Eligible to be President,” spent nearly 40 minutes on Paterson’s program outlining the evidence that casts doubt on Obama’s claim to be a “natural born citizen” as the Constitution requires of presidents. Paterson invited Corsi onto the show after the former governor stirred up a hornet’s nest by suggesting Obama could be ineligible for the Oval Office and “got away” with it.
    Even Obama took aim at the pair by releasing a video “highlighting Mitt Romney’s failure to condemn Donald Trump’s over-the-line rhetoric.”“If Mitt Romney lacks the backbone to stand up to a charlatan like Donald Trump because he’s so concerned about lining his campaign’s pockets,” the Obama campaign said, “what does that say about the kind of president he would be?”


      • One of the better interviews. Gov. Patterson didn’t talk over Jerry Corsi like so many do, and Jerry was able to get most information into the conversation. The subject of NBC was brought up but was not placed on that issue. Corsi says it is an identity issue and the fundamental questions as to “Who is he” are not answered. The Social security card was brought up and it being issued in CT, and assigned to someone and not BHO. The Selective service issue was not covered that I recall. Obama having different names, Barry Soetoro and Soebarka was discussed. The birth announcement and anyone being able to get registered in Hawaii was talked about as well as there being no hospital records for Ann Dunham giving birth in either Queens or Kapolani Hospital.

        Upon listening to them speak, I can indeed see why it is hard to give credence to our information when all we have is information that has been debunked. What we do have is evidence by Sheriff Arpaio of the possible forgeries of the BC and selective service documents leading to probable cause and criminal intent. What we also have are multiple people in Congress trying to change the meaning of Natural Born Citizen almost a dozen times since Obama came on the scene for the Democratic party. We also know that the Liar in Chief is not eligible to be heading our government if we take his information from the BC that his father was not a US citizen.

    • This is as expected. Move the goal post. “Well, maybe he is ineligible, but it’s too late to fix it now.”

  22. Mitt Promises Tit-for-Tat – Will Send His Supporters to Obama Rallies …Then He Does It (Video)
    May 31, 2012, 9:03 PM

    Mitt Makes Promise – Then Follows Through!
    Last week Barack Obama sent his campaign supporters down to a Romney event in Philadelphia to protest. In response to this, Mitt Romney promised reporters today, “If the president wants to send his supporters to my rally, we’ll show him that we have the same capacity as he does.”

    And Mitt delivered. Romney supporters met Obama senior strategist David Axelrod at his anti-Romney event in Massachusetts.

    The Caucus Blog reported:

    Loud and rowdy supporters of Mitt Romney in Boston drowned out an attempt by President Obamacampaign’s top strategist to attack the former Republican governor on his home turf.

    In a morning news conference on the steps of the Massachusetts Statehouse, David Axelrod, one of Mr. Obama’s senior strategists, tried mostly in vain on Thursday to level Mr. Obama’s latest broadside on Mr. Romney’s record as governor of the state.

    Instead, he was booed, heckled and chanted down by supporters of Mr. Romney who refused to let up even for a moment as Mr. Axelrod and Democratic state lawmakers sought to make their case. The group included several staff members in his Boston headquarters, including an aide’s dog wearing a Romney T-shirt. With cameras rolling, the Republican hecklers yelled “We Want Mitt!” and “Broken Record!” and held signs that said “Go Back to Chicago!” Mr. Axelrod appeared bemused but rattled by them, at one point saying: “You can shout down speakers my friends, but it’s hard to Etch A Sketch away the truth.”


    • Oh, that’s a shame. Hoist on his own petard. They can dish it but can’t take it. OF COURSE, the lamestream will use that insane schoolteacher defense: Romney’s just a candidate but Obama is potus so THAT’S SO DISRESPECTFUL!

      I’m glad they’re fighting back. It’s ABOUT TIME!

  23. Mark Levin – turning around? Let’s see his transcripts! Following in his best pal’s request, Hannity, for those transcripts. He said he’s always wanted to see Obama’s transcripts.

    “I’ve never been a birther – what’s more illogical the birthers or the Marxists/socialists – the statists? The birthers are harmless.”

  25. Outrage: Secret Service Interrogates Obama Eligibility Activist
    June 1, 2012

    This video documents federal agents coming to the home of anti-Obama activist Rudy Davis aka LoneStar1776. There seems to be an aggressive campaign by the Secret Service to learn personal information about political critics of Barack Obama. Listen carefully to the personal questions these agents ask.

    If I was advising him, I would recommend not answering these questions. If they come to your home, I recommend not answering. Refer them to a lawyer.

    In a country which guarantees our free speech, it is chilling to see the US Government sending armed agents to scope out political activists. If Rudy was a leftist, Obama himself would be denouncing this visit. In Obama’s America, anyone can hear a knock on the door if you are vocal in your legitimate political disputes with Obama and his minions. I am proud that Rudy Davis held his ground, but he has no legal requirement to answer.


    • I just finished watching that. I don’t even remember how I was tipped to it, but I’m glad it’s here. WHY were they there asking that citizen all those questions?

      • I used to know a lot of special agents and i remember them telling me they have to investigate every single possible threat no matter how obvious it is that the person is not an actual threat. so, if this guy ever said anything remotely like he wanted to do harm to the president, it is standard to go out and talk to him. the audio is really bad, but they mentioned something about he said something on a video.

        they talk to every single person. most of them are delusional types who write crazy letters to the whitehouse, but an agent from the nearest field office goes out. This was back during clinton and GWB – they did the same thing.

        • Yeah. I’m sure they’re doing what they have to do. Who knows what they think is going on? It’s their job. They seemed polite to the guy. My guess is that some obot saw the video and made a special complaint and that had to be followed up on. Once the wheels are in motion, everybody goes into CYA mode. What if they ignored it and something did happen? Only if it becomes harassment do I have a problem with it. He shouldn’t have said what he said in the way he said it. What I’d like to see, though, is them treating the MULTIPLE threats against ordinary citizens made by the obots (and the New Black Panthers) with equal seriousness.

      • The reason that the SS guys were there is this video:

        I disagree with that video. It’s around the 7 minute mark, or maybe after that. I can’t remember. He shouldn’t have put it that way in my opinion.

        • That was a very stupid thing to say and I disagree with him, too. We have a Constitution and a system of justice. We don’t have the kind of thing that happens in countries like Saudi Arabia.

    • Sorry, but I think this video is going to backfire. The guy offered too many opinions and information long before questions started. When the SS come a visiting it is NOT the time to share your political views, opinions, research to validate those thoughts, and definately not the time to spew your mouth off on your theories. He was in way too much of a rush/hurry to show off his knowledge of whatever and ended up making the rest of those seeking the truth about Obama as, oh, I don’t know . . . . This is not someone we want to make as a poster boy for the questioning of Barack Hussein Obama (BHO—Big Hunk of O’Shit!)
