U.N. Stealth Treaty to Gut Our Second Amendment? (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS July 9, 2012 

If Operation Fast and Furious (OFF) has taught us anything, it’s that the progressives in this country (especially Barack Hussein Obama II, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder) will go to great lengths to invent “facts” to use to continue to chip away at our Second Amendment rights.  Many have credibly argued that OFF was designed not to stop guns from flowing across the border to Mexican drug cartels, but rather to inflate the numbers and “prove” by lying statistics that over 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico were trafficked illegally from the United States.  The goal was to gin up an astroturfed groundswell of bogus public opinion in favor of more government control over guns. 

The claim that 90% of guns recovered in Mexico came from the US was a lie of omission, or clever parsing.  Left out was the fact that not all the guns were traced–only those guns submitted by Mexico for tracing, which was a tiny subset of the total number of guns confiscated by Mexican authorities.

Now comes news that the progressives have opened a second front in this war on our Second Amendment rights.  George Soros and the United Nations, with support from Obama and Hillary Clinton, are pushing a new international treaty designed to enact gun control within the United States, despite the clear will of the people [emphasis added]:

Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

What, exactly, does the intended agreement entail?

While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

Where does  George Soros come in?  The billionaire progressive globalist is funding this effort [emphasis added]:

to give the United Nations control of your guns.

Through his Media Matters organization, Soros is dumping pro-UN gun control propaganda into the mainstream media to coincide with the United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty being held in New York July 2–27. …

The current draft of the ATT mandates that the governments of member states petition the United Nations for approval of any contract to sell weapons to any nation where there exists a “substantial risk of a serious violation” of human rights. … That is a direct assault on American legislative sovereignty, and an indirect attack on the sovereignty of the American people who elect the members of Congress who vote on such measures.

In the text of the ATT, the United Nations specifically calls for the passage of a legally binding instrument that will impose international standards for the ownership, trade, and transfer of weapons.

In another section the ATT includes “controls on a comprehensive list of weaponry, including small arms and light weapons.” Predictably, all these controls are couched comfortably in talk of “human rights” and ending senseless killings by rogue regimes.”

While you will soon be hearing a great deal in the media about the wealthy Koch brothers, who support Mitt Romney and (no doubt) the preservation of our sovereignty and our Constitutional rights, you will be hearing very little about the activities of the subversive Mr. Soros, who funds the New World Order (NWO), including politicians, such as Barack Hussein Obama II and Hillary Clinton, as well as projects like Agenda 21.  Make no mistake:  Soros wants the end of free-market capitalism, as does Obama.  

This is not Soros’s first attempt to directly subvert our rights.  He designed his Secretary of State Project, which seeks lockstep Democrat control over Secretary of State offices in all fifty statesAll the better to control our elections [emphasis added].   

History’s most notorious Georgian-turned-Russian, the politically astute Joseph Stalin once remarked, “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”

Secretaries of State oversee elections. They decide which rules apply. They decide which votes count and which don’t count. They decide which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore, much the same as the federal government under Obama has decided not to enforce Voting Rights laws when the victim is white and not to enforce immigration laws.  Illegal aliens are allowed to stay, and now the progressives want to ensure that they can continue to vote illegally in our elections.

Over the weekend (coincidentally?), the AP published a story that alleges that the risks of voter ID laws far outweigh the benefits of catching illegal voters.  The writer contends that the greater danger lies in having legitimate votes tossed.  As usual, the story is slanted, uses lying statistics and anecdotal evidence, and downplays the fact that no vote that’s legitimate will be tossed, so long as the voter complies with the law.  The writer also chooses weasel words like “suggest” and “could” and “appears” and “believes”.  As one pro-voter-ID lawyer pointed out

“Most of it [vote fraud] goes unreported and unprosecuted.”

If voter ID laws prevent people from attempting to vote illegally, then the illegal voters won’t be counted in these statistics.  If voter ID laws don’t exist or are not enforced, then illegal voters won’t be counted in these statistics, either, because they will be counted as legal voters (since they weren’t caught in the act).  

Therefore, it’s wrong-headed and deliberate obfuscation to compare an undercount of actual or potential illegal votes to the number of ballots tossed that were cast by voters who might have been legitimate but who didn’t bother to go back to the election board to prove their eligibility. 

You can’t compare the number of tossed ballots with an UNKNOWN AND UNKNOWABLE number of  illegal voters who didn’t try to vote illegally (because of the new law) or who were not reported, identified, or prosecuted when they did vote illegally.

By the way, there’s an inconvenient statistic that the progressives would not want to see:  If voter ID laws are in force, then it ought to be a simple matter to compare voter rolls to see who no longer votes but who used to vote.  Then check their eligibility to vote in order to arrive at  the number of illegal votes that were cast and counted, but should not have been countedWe the People have a right to know how many of our elections have been stolen over the past decades, especially by illegal aliens in key states like California and Florida (where the 2000 presidential election was decided by just over 500 votes).

Is this disingenuous AP story evidence of yet another Soros initiative?  Is Soros also planting anti-voter-ID stories in the complicit media to help promote yet another line item from the Soros/Obama NWO (communist, totalitarian) agenda?  

Of what use is it to Obama to allow illegal aliens to stay if state voter ID laws prevent them from voting?  That’s the real reason Democrats oppose voter ID laws.

Everything progressives do has a subtext, an agenda, a hidden motivation.  We the People must remain ever vigilant.  We must do all we can to get the word out to as many of our fellow citizens as possible.  We cannot allow these initiatives to go unchallenged.

  1. New open thread. I have three stories that relate to each other: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/08/magazine/the-drone-zone.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all
    “Holloman sits on almost 60,000 acres of desert badlands, near jagged hills that are frosted with snow for several months of the year — a perfect training ground for pilots who will fly Predators and Reapers over the similarly hostile terrain of Afghanistan. When I visited the base earlier this year with a small group of reporters, we were taken into a command post where a large flat-screen television was broadcasting a video feed from a drone flying overhead. It took a few seconds to figure out exactly what we were looking at. A white S.U.V. traveling along a highway adjacent to the base came into the cross hairs in the center of the screen and was tracked as it headed south along the desert road. When the S.U.V. drove out of the picture, the drone began following another car.

    Wait, you guys practice tracking enemies by using civilian cars?” a reporter asked. One Air Force officer responded that this was only a training mission, and then the group was quickly hustled out of the room.”

    So they’re training drone pilots by tracking citizens in their cars, on the highways, without their knowledge. Are these drones ARMED? Seems like an accident waiting to happen. As soon as the reporter questioned it, they were hustled away. Sounds like the Obamanation.

  2. Good post Miri. The CONSTITUTION trumps ALL else. UN can take a hike. They were founded in a cat house so who cares what THEY want ?

  3. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/09/us/cell-carriers-see-uptick-in-requests-to-aid-surveillance.html?_r=1&hp
    “In the first public accounting of its kind, cellphone carriers reported that they responded to a startling 1.3 million demands for subscriber information last year from law enforcement agencies seeking text messages, caller locations and other information in the course of investigations. The cellphone carriers’ reports, which come in response to a Congressional inquiry, document an explosion in cellphone surveillance in the last five years, with the companies turning over records thousands of times a day in response to police emergencies, court orders, law enforcement subpoenas and other requests.

    The reports also reveal a sometimes uneasy partnership with law enforcement agencies, with the carriers frequently rejecting demands that they considered legally questionable or unjustified. At least one carrier even referred some inappropriate requests to the F.B.I. …

    While the cell companies did not break down the types of law enforcement agencies collecting the data, they made clear that the widened cell surveillance cut across all levels of government — from run-of-the-mill street crimes handled by local police departments to financial crimes and intelligence investigations at the state and federal levels. …

    Under federal law, the carriers said they generally required a search warrant, a court order or a formal subpoena to release information about a subscriber. But in cases that law enforcement officials deem an emergency, a less formal request is often enough. Moreover, rapid technological changes in cellphones have blurred the lines on what is legally required to get data — particularly the use of GPS systems to identify the location of phones.

    As cell surveillance becomes a seemingly routine part of police work, [Representative] Mr. Markey [D, MA] said in an interview that he worried that “digital dragnets” threatened to compromise the privacy of many customers. “There’s a real danger we’ve already crossed the line,” he said.”

    Sounds like the Obamanation. The second page tells us that companies MAKE MONEY from this because they’re allowed to BILL the government for the info gathering. An unholy alliance? They also report that data collection was incomplete, so the TRUE number of cases is likely much higher! And some of the requests are very broad. Like they ask for the names of EVERYBODY within a certain distance of a specific cell tower at a certain point in time, something they call a “dump”. How hard would it be for them to get a warrant for one person while REALLY watching someone else?

    OMG! This increased spying has even created jobs at these companies because they have to hire special crews to handle the requests and check legalities. And who said Barry hasn’t created jopsssssss? They say some companies have outsourced the work. To where? PAKISTAN?????

    • Someone in my family works for a carrier and does research in regards to subpoenas, warrants, etc. Text messages, I understand, are not very easy to log. They are not on record more than a month, I think. (The new phones may be a little different.) The billing, at this point is only about .25 per pg. They don’t bill hours. Pretty much covers the paper. Not sure about the “dumps” but if they are doing this it is fairly recent and I am not sure legal.
      This member did subpoenas for several states and didn’t have help. Everything went through this person and no one else had access to the records. You have to be able to know how to run the programs. If you need to know anything let me know (What the laws are).

      • I remember posting a story about those cell-tower data dumps before. How it sweeps up everybody within the vicinity. They’re not legal per se in that they can’t use anything they find against a person who wasn’t the subject of the warrant, but they still gather and KEEP the information. They have and use the information. They just can’t use it in court. But it’s still a violation of our privacy for them to be creating and keeping all this information about us. It’s bad enough that there are no laws to protect our privacy in the free-market databases. Think about how these companies can combine and use databases. And they do it already. It’s not hard for a programmer, with access to all these databases, to develop a comprehensive timeline and profile of everything you’ve done, everywhere you’ve gone, everything you’ve bought, everything you’re interested in, everyone you know, everything you say to everyone you know (even if you don’t select “public” on the social network sites).

        Gee, wouldn’t it be interesting to have a Communications Carrier Insider to tell us what KIND of subpoenas they’re getting and who the targets are and why they’re watching them?

        • Talked to person….only in kidnapping or extreme emergency was any info given out (subpoena followed asap). The dumps would only be cell phone numbers in a given area (no names without warrant or subpoena) . Only one carrier (I will leave out the name) keeps content of text messages and it is for 10 days..then disappears. Data (from whom to whom and date/time stamp) is kept for 30 days.

          “Entrapping” text message content would need a court order and it is similar to wiretapping. Researcher would have to know ahead of time to set up device to keep or store content of text message.

          Separate issue with FBI and conversations… the term is called PEN registration. FBI has vans or trucks and with subpoena they request sub scriber info (which includes name, ss, address, phone number) and more importantly, part of the info requested is the IMSI which is the frequency or i d of SIM chip.

          This person mostly had relationship with FBI, Federal Marshalls, Local LEOs. DHS didn’t need subpoena; only a letter citing executive order. Didn’t do too many of those at all.

          Person not in position, unfortunately as company bought out. Too bad, it was a good company (family oriented). Yes, it would be great to have an insider. The Company saw the handwriting on the wall back in 2008 and they sold out to protect stock holders.

          • Wow. Thanks for all the information. I’m especially concerned that DHS didn’t need a subpoena, just that letter about an executive order. That’s a loophole big enough to drive a truck through.

    “Politicians recognize they give up a degree of privacy when they run for office.

    But Democrats are testing the outer limits of that understanding with a practice that raises questions about when campaign tracking becomes something more like stalking.

    While most serious campaigns on both sides use campaign trackers — staffers whose job is to record on video every public appearance and statement by an opponent — House Democrats are taking it to another level. They’re now recording video of the homes of GOP congressmen and candidates and posting the raw footage on the Internet for all to see.

    That ratcheting up of the video surveillance game is unnerving Republicans who insist that even by political standards, it’s a gross invasion of privacy. Worse, they say, it creates a safety risk for members of Congress and their families at a time when they are already on edge after a deranged gunman shot former Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords 18 months ago.

    Wisconsin GOP Rep. Reid Ribble, who said he’s also been followed by a cameraman when shopping for groceries, said the home videos cross a line. …

    DeaNa Ribble, the congressman’s wife, said it is deeply unsettling.

    “I’m more creeped out about this than Reid is, just because I’m home more,” she said. “If they so much as put a foot on private property, I will be the first person to call the police.”

    Republicans whose homes have been videotaped say they understand that politics is a contact sport and that every public utterance they make is fair game. But, they argue, filming a home — and posting actual addresses — ought to be off-limits, if only out of respect for their families and neighbors. …

    Democrats, on the other hand, insist the videos are fair game — and are unapologetic about the hardball tactics.

    They say showcasing the homes — most of which are spacious and neatly maintained — underscores what will be a key avenue of attack for the party this fall: communicating that Republicans just can’t relate to economically struggling voters. …

    Democratic officials said placing the videos on the DCCC’s website and YouTube serve a useful purpose, most notably making the footage available to friendly outside groups for use in TV commercials. That way, they don’t violate laws against coordinating with those groups.”

    I’m guessing that it still violates SOME law. It’s like an “in-kind” donation, isn’t it? What creeps.

    Here’s a connected story: Some “watchers” tried to crash a Romney event over the weekend and ended up getting arrested for RUNNING INTO A POLICE BOAT! http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/07/leftie-goons-arrested-after-trying-to-crash-romney-event-crash-into-police-boat-instead/ You have to wonder where the Secret Service was. Or doesn’t Romney get protection until after the convention?

    There’s video (but not of the boat, of the protest) and they are, on cue, protesting the Kochs.

    • “Maraniss begins to provide some worthwhile new information. He reports that the first contact with Davis by the Obama family came from Stanley Dunham’s brother, Ralph Dunham, who met Davis when he was “in Honolulu on a working vacation for the U.S. Office of Education.” That’s something I never knew, and want to know more. Maraniss doesn’t elaborate, nor does he cite his source.”

      We didn’t know that, either. Ralph Dunham worked for the Office of Education? And even so, why would someone from the Office of Education seek out FMD?

      “”Obama later estimated that he saw Davis ‘ten to fifteen times’” during their years together in Hawaii. Again, Maraniss doesn’t provide his source, but I’m assuming the source is Obama himself…”

      If he admits to 10-15, it was far more often. Perhaps as often as any father is or was given visitation back in those days?

      “Davis would have known Obama from his mid- to late 60s into his mid-70s, when Davis was still a political radical and still a member of at least one of the worst communist front-groups, the American Committee for Protection of the Foreign Born.”

      Protection of the FOREIGN BORN. Snark!

      “…a crucial piece of information provided by Maraniss is his confirmation that Frank Marshall Davis became “a subject of some of his [Obama’s] teenage poetry.””

      POP. But then, check it out:

      “The younger hippies who lived around Davis and acquaintances in the bars on Smith Street often called him Pop or Pops,” write MARANISS. And he knows that HOW? Why include this? I have my suspicions and they aren’t nice.

      This is SPIN, SPIN, SPIN. A “confirming detail.” Right! The truth was coming out that Pop was written about FMD and then people would ask, “Why would BARRY call him Pop?” And “why would SAD instruct her father to take Barry for regular visits with “Pop”?” And “Why was FMD chosen to be his “mentor”?”

      Cover up, cover up, cover up. Provide a “plausible rationalization” no matter HOW IMPLAUSIBLE. I bet there’s no citation or source for that new “fact”, that “confirming detail” that the hippies around there all called FMD “Pops”. I bet there’s no mention of that “fact” ANYWHERE in the whole wide world until now. Until this point in time. Until Maraniss reveals this tidbit in his new book that explains away all the discrepancies that have been discovered by INDEPENDENT AND NON-COMPLICIT RESEARCHERS over the past four years.

      I suspected why Maraniss wrote the book and every time something new comes out, it confirms my suspicion.

    The U.S. defense official called the latest Bear H incident near the U.S. West Coast “Putin’s Fourth of July Bear greeting to Obama.”

    Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a former Alaska commander for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said the latest Bear H intrusion appears to be Russian military testing.

    “It’s becoming very obvious that Putin is testing Obama and his national security team,” McInerney told the Free Beacon. “These long-range aviation excursions are duplicating exercises I experienced during the height of the Cold War when I commanded the Alaska NORAD region.

    McInerney said the Bear H flights are an effort by the Russians to challenge U.S. resolve, something he noted is “somewhat surprising as Obama is about to make a unilateral reduction of our nuclear forces as well as major reductions in our air defense forces.”

    “Actions by Russia in Syria and Iran demonstrate that Cold War strategy may be resurrected,” he said.

    “These are not good indications of future U.S. Russian relations.”

    Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby said the incident occurred July 4. He said the “out-of-area patrol by two Russian long range bombers … entered the outer [Air Defense Identification Zone]” and the bombers “were visually identified by NORAD fighters.”

    Kirby said the bombers did not enter “sovereign airspace.” He declined to identify the specific distance the aircraft flew from the United States due to operational security concerns. He also declined to identify the types of aircraft used to intercept the bombers.

    In last month’s intercept of two Russian Tu-95 bombers, U.S. F-15s and Canadian CF-18s were used. The most likely aircraft used in Wednesday’s intercept were U.S. F-15 jets based at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska.

  7. “KGO 810: Obama Says Romney Needs to Be an ‘Open Book’; Who The Hell Are You Obama?”

    “In an interview Monday night with Manchester, N.H., ABC affiliate WMUR, Obama stressed the need for transparency when asked whether Romney’s offshore finances, including a Swiss bank account, disqualified him for office or made him unpatriotic.

    “What’s important is if you are running for president is that the American people know who you are and what you’ve done and that you’re an open book. And that’s been true of every presidential candidate dating all the way back to Mitt Romney’s father,” Obama told reporter Josh McElveen.

    “Obviously there are unpleasant aspects of being poked and probed, and I understand that,” Obama said. “But it’s important for you to say here’s who I am, and here’s how I’ve done.””

    http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/2012/07/kgo-810-obama-says-romney-needs-to-be.html

    • Yep. What a freaking hypocrite. This is really pathological. A NORMAL person would immediately sense his own vulnerability on the topic and notice his ironic hypocrisy. But not Obama. No, the RULES DO NOT APPLY TO THE ONE. OTHERS should be transparent, but not he.

      “What is important is that if you are running for president is that the American people know who you are and what you’ve done and that you’re an open book.”

      OMG. Where to begin. First, is, is, is. One is too many. This, from a brilliant author and orator. What a shame. Did TOTUS fail or did the implant?

      FOUR YEARS AFTER, the American people STILL DON’T KNOW WHO OBAMA IS. WHO the hell is he? Soebarkah? Barry Dunham? Barry X? Bari Shabazz? Barry Obama? Barrack Hussein Obama? Barack Hussein Obama Jr.? Barack Hussein Obama II? Barry Soetoro? Barry Sutoro? Stephen Dunham? Stephen insert-surname-of-choice?

      An “open book”? Now, which one would Barry be? That admittedly FABRICATED BOOK? The one ghostwritten by an admitted domestic terrorist?

      • I suspect the ruling on the stolen valor subject had everything to do with future events not just validate what someone has already done.

        Meaning, giving permission ahead of time so people can lie about who they are. If this is true, how can slander be slander? If I have ‘free speech” to lie about my awards, etc., why can’t it be “free speech” to lie about someone else?

    • Wait a minute! As a candidate in 2008, Obama released 12 YEARS of tax returns and every one since then? That would make 16 years. Is this true? FactCheck, please. Have we seen ANY tax returns from the 1990s? Why doesn’t Barry, in a show of faith, release them ALL? Every one, all the way back to the first one he ever filed? Or did he only just begin filing tax returns 16 years ago? 1996? Where is it? Has anybody seen a tax return for Barry from 1996?

      A commenter there says that Romney should release his long-form bc, his tax records, his social security records, and all his college transcripts and THEN challenge Barry to do the same. It would be a WONDERFUL tactic but of course, the RINOs will not allow it. PC and all that. I TRIPLE DOG DARE ROMNEY TO STAND UP AND FIGHT. PUT IT OUT THERE AND CHALLENGE THE “OPEN” AND “TRANSPARENT” ONE TO EAT HIS OWN WORDS.

      • The open book I want to see are the real estate records for that cushy deal Obama got on his house. Not to mention, where’d poor he and Mooch come up for the down payment on their first condo?

      • That’s untrue. What a surprise! The lamestream makes a “mistake” and alleges that Barry released 12 years of his tax returns in 2008. Nope. He released them from 2000 onwards. That’s not 16 years, which would be required to meet the standard he expects of Romney. Twelve years back from when you first ran for POTUS. But they came up with 12 years, probably, because that’s how many Barry released so far, including during his usurpation of the office of president. http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/Web/PresidentialTaxReturns?OpenDocument That site has the tax returns of past and current presidents (legitimate or not) and candidates.

        • This apparently is not a habit with presidential candidates. Clinton released his tax returns during his time in office, unless that site for some reason didn’t post his from when he was a candidate. They have Palin’s, though, and she was only a vice presidential candidate. So where’s Clinton’s 12 years going back from the time he first ran for office? Wouldn’t THOSE be interesting? This site says that Clinton released returns back to 1980. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/dec/16/democratic-national-committee/dnc-says-presidential-candidates-usually-release-t/ They also rated the DNC claim that “most” candidates release their tax returns “mostly true”. I wonder what they’ll come up with now that Obama has claimed that it’s traditional to release 12 years worth? It’s not even true that most candidates release much more than a year or two. Romney HAS released some returns. There’s no reason except political for a fishing expedition. If Barry wants all of Romney’s back 12 years, then we should see all of his back 12 years from whenever he declared himself a candidate for president the FIRST time. Then we’ll learn the truth about those student loans he claims to only have paid off a few years ago.

          I’m sure by now they have lined up a leaker at the IRS to put Romney’s out there, after they’ve let him twist in the wind of this fake controversy about him “hiding” something. They have the nerve to say that only people with something to hide hide things. Yep. Just like that hypocrite Barry. “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth, are people with something to hide.” You said it, Barry. You said it. Might as well have said, “with something to cauterize.”

    • “David Axelrod Says Romney Most Secretive Candidate: What About Obama’s Records?”

      “David Axelrod, one of President Obama’s senior campaign strategists, on Friday compared Mitt Romney to former President Richard Nixon, suggesting Romney’s penchant for secrecy is similar to that of the only U.S. president forced to resign due to scandal.

      “This is the most secretive candidate since Richard Nixon,” Axelrod, appearing on “CBS This Morning,” said of Romney.

      “What happened after Nixon is we as a country said we need a higher level of disclosure, so people know who their candidates are, what their entanglements are, and we can make judgments on it,” he continued. “Gov. Romney and his campaign have stonewalled and are trying to turn the clock back 50 years on transparency and disclosure.””

    Iran Named to Group Overseeing U.N. Arms Treaty
    Conference; ‘Like Choosing Bernie Madoff to Police Fraud’
    By Patrick Goodenough

    Miri, That Guinness connection ?

    • UNITED NATIONS – A little more than a week after accusing Iran of supplying arms for Syria’s bloody crackdown on democracy-minded rebels, the UN has given Tehran a key seat at negotiations for a global arms treaty.

      The stunning appointment by member states attending the UN Conference of the Arms Trade Treaty in New York came last week, and is just the latest example of the world body appointing rogue and repressive regimes to leadership roles. The 15-nation committee to which Iran was appointed hopes to guide what could eventually become the first legally binding global treaty aimed at regulating the international trade of conventional arms.

      Critics say asking Iran to help craft a treaty aimed at stopping arms proliferation to terrorist groups and rogue states makes a mockery of the talks. Just two weeks ago, the UN Security Council accused Tehran of shipping arms to Syria, and Iran is also suspected of hiding illegal nuclear weapons facilities from international watchdogs.

      “It defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to elect this same regime to a global post in the regulation of arms transfers.”

      – UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer

      “Right after a UN Security Council report found Iran guilty of illegally transferring guns and bombs to Syria, which is now murdering thousands of its own people, it defies logic, morality and common sense for the UN to elect this same regime to a global post in the regulation of arms transfers,” UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer told FoxNews.com.

      Talks are taking place throughout the month, with Argentina serving as president and the other 14 nations, including the U.S., Iran, China and Russia, as deputies, or vice presidents. The treaty would regulate conventional arms and not weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear, chemical or biological arms.

      Any treaty would have to be ratified by the Senate in order to be enforceable against U.S. citizens or corporations. The talks have already raised concerns in the U.S. that an international pact could curb Americans’ Second Amendment rights. The conference was backed by the Obama administration, in a reversal of the Bush administration, which had opposed a UN General Assembly resolution launching the treaty process in 2006.

      Iran gloated about its appointment, with its news agencies IRNA and ISNA boasting about the Islamic Republic’s appointment as a “deputy” to the treaty talks, and the Tehran Times touting that Iran’s mission to the UN will be “assisting the president” of the conference in conducting business.

      At the meeting in which Iran was named to the committee, no nations — including the U.S. — objected. But the U.S. State Department scrambled to play down the significance of the appointment, arguing there are safeguards protecting against any treaty not in the U.S. interest from being passed.

      “Obviously we oppose [Iran’s appointment], but it’s a symbolic position with little impact on a month-long negotiation that must be decided by consensus,” said one senior State Department official, who asked not to be identified because a more formal response was still being prepared.

      “It will ultimately face the approval of the United States regardless of which country holds one of 14 powerless vice president positions. At that point, we will be looking for an arms trade treaty that makes the legitimate global weapons trade safer by bringing the rest of the world’s arms trade regulations up to the high [current] U.S. standard.”

      Just last year, Ambassador Joseph Torsella, the Obama administration’s U.S. Representative to UN for Management and Reform, told the Council on Foreign Relations the U.S. would no longer go along with appointments that send the wrong message.

      “We’re going to assert a common-sense principle across the UN: If a member state is under Security Council sanction for weapons proliferation or massive human-rights abuses, it should be barred, plain and simple, from leadership roles like chairmanships in UN bodies,” Torsella said. “Abusers of international law or norms should not be the public face of the UN.”

      UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon addressed the arms trade conference on the same day as Iran’s appointment, but failed to mention it.

      Instead he focused the need for an arms trade treaty to advance in tandem with efforts to control the proliferation of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction.

      “Nuclear issues capture headlines, but conventional arms are killing people every day,” Ban told the UN’s 193 member states.

      Significantly, Iran is also defying the UN over pursuit of its nuclear program, which the West believes is aimed at developing a nuclear weapon.

      Conference spokesman Ewen Buchanan said the choice of Iran was solely that of the Asia-Pacific group, and stressed the conference secretariat was “not in charge of this member-state process.”

      The conference is taking place after the Obama administration moved in 2009 to support holding the event – reversing the position of the Bush administration, which opposed a UN General Assembly resolution launching the treaty process in 2006.

      The U.S. has long listed Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism, and both it and Israel accuse the Islamic Republic of providing support to Mideast terror groups that seek Israel’s destruction.

      Meanwhile, incongruous appointments take place with alarming frequency at the UN, and include Syria’s appointment to a UNESCO human rights committee last fall, and Saudi Arabia’s earlier appointment to the board of the women’s rights agency UN Women – despite laws in the Arab kingdom that don’t even allow women to drive.

      Syria, meanwhile, is quietly competing to become a member of the UN Human Rights Council – which the UN bills as the world’s foremost arbiter of human rights violations.

      “The UN’s choice of Iran is exactly why we fear that Syria’s declared bid for a UN Human Rights Council seat is not impossible,” said Neuer, whose organization also uncovered the Syrian candidacy.

  10. First his cousin, now his half-brother George: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/barack-obama-brother-anti-documentary-george-obama-346807

    “An interview with George Obama, who lives in a hut in Kenya “like something out of ‘Slumdog Millionaire'” is featured in the upcoming movie “2016: Obama’s America.”
    Barack Obama’s half-brother, George Obama, is about to make his film debut, and in a feature-length documentary that is critical of the president, no less.” Video of George there.

    • I think I kinda like George…he basically says he’s an adult and doesn’t expect his brother to take care of him. We could use a little more of that attitude here 🙂

      • I always thought George was the best of the lot. Well, except when she’s helping Barry lie, Auma isn’t too bad, either.

        • I watched the short video clip on the Blaze. Do George’s recollections about meeting Barack when he (George) was 5 or 6 match up with BO’s story?

          • When was George born? I don’t remember.

            • O Timeline has that George was born in 1982, so it would have been 1987-1988 when he met him. I seem to recall some story about Barry coming to George’s school? When George was in kindergarten? Is that the tale? Where was this? In Kenya? George and his mother, iirc, lived in the US at some point. His mother lives here now, I think. Or did recently.

        • you mean the Communista ,Auma?

          • Is she? I haven’t paid much attention to her pronouncements, but she seemed like a relatively decent person, from what I have seen on the videos. Didn’t read her book, either. If she’s a commie, she’s wrong-headed.

  11. http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/brad-pitts-mom-bullied-into-silence/

    Brad’s mother getting death threats for exercising her right to free speech.

    “Jane Pitt, mother of actor Brad Pitt, has been scared into silence by the hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her public assertion that Barack Obama is “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”

    Pitt has even been the subject of death threats following her letter to the editor of Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader in which she asserted failure to vote for Republican presumptive presidential candidate Mitt Romney constituted a vote for Obama.

    WND spoke briefly with Pitt and asked about the media assault against her for her comments as a private citizen supporting Romney. With inflections in her voice that conveyed fear and despair, she quietly and politely said she was not interested in talking to anyone in the media about the incident.

    When she was told WND supported her right to speak her mind and is appalled by the threats against her life, Pitt expressed gratitude to WND for being one of the few news agencies doing so. Even her thank you, however, was said in a subdued manner laden with heaviness of heart.”

  13. Because this is an open thread, I’ll just mention that Orly has another case referred to The Supreme Court

    Dr. Taitz, Esq. has no means of checking the veracity of all the claims and allegations in the articles.
    If Justice Clarence Thomas does not grant a stay or referral to full court, Farrar v Obama will be reassigned to Chief Justice John Roberts

    Posted on | July 10, 2012 | 2 Comments

    Press release

    Law Offices of Dr. Orly Taitz

    Farrar v Obama in front of the Supreme Court

    Farrar order denying motion to quash subpoenas

    Farrar corrected proposed summary of law and fact

    Farrar v Obama Application for Stay of primary election votes for Barack Obama in the state of Georgia was filed and docketed in the Supreme Court of the United States and referred to Justice Clarence Thomas, a justice in charge of the 11th Circuit from which the case originated. If Justice Thomas does not grant the stay or referral to the full court, the case will be in front of the Chief Justice John Roberts.

    This case was heard on January 26, 2012 in Atlanta Georgia. Attorney Orly Taitz brought 7 witnesses, among them Senior Deportation office of the Department of Homeland Security, all of whom testified that Obama’s Social Security card and Birth certificate are forged and fraudulently obtained documents. Taitz subpoenaed Obama to appear in court and produce valid identification papers. Obama filed a motion to quash the subpoenas filed by Taitz. Presiding judge Malihi ruled in favor of Taitz and ordered Obama to appear in court and produce the identification papers. Obama and his attorney Michael Jablonski were in contempt of court ordered subpoena and boycotted the hearing, claiming that Obama is being harassed. GA law requires the candidate to prove his eligibility, Obama did not provide any proof. Based on yet unknown consideration judge Malihi allowed Obama on the ballot.

    DVD of the actual court argument in the case and witness sworn testimony is available through this site by paying $20 (see Donate above and indicating that this is for the DVD of GA trial). Decision by Justice Thomas is expected within 2 weeks. If no state is granted by Thomas, decision by Roberts will be 2 weeks later.

    Farrar v Obama is one of several cases prosecuted by attorney Taitz, challenging Obama Tax. Other cases are in front of the Federal District judge Wingate in Mississippi, Judge Reid in Indiana, Court of Appeals in Washington DC, Federal District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles.

    Motion Hearing in Taitz v Sebelius challenging Obama Tax as violating Establishment clause, Free Exercise of Religion Clause, Equal Protection Clause and Due Process clause of Christian and Jewish citizens due to exemptions given to religious sects and due to expected mass exemptions of Muslim citizens, will be on August 10, 9:30 am in the U.S. District court in Los Angeles.

    An about face by O’Really? And his radio talking points memo today was blasting the Dems for being hypocrites about Romney’s wealth when they are fine with extremely wealthy people like the Kerrys, the Kennedys, the Rockefellers, etc.

  16. http://www.obamanomicsoutsourced.com/

    That is a great site to use to answer the claims that Romney outsourced jobs when he was at Bain. Nope, he didn’t; but I say, even if he did, at least he used his/their own money AND NOT OUR MONEY. NOT THE US TAXPAYER MONEY TO CREATE JOBS IN OTHER COUNTRIES! There’s an interactive map that lets you see what jobs Barry used our money to create elswhere, while our young people suffer under a 16.8% unemployment rate. Way to go, kids. I bet you’re happy you voted for him.

  17. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/dem-chair-invested-swiss-banks-foreign-drug-companies-and-state-bank-india_648350.html

    The second hypocrite of the day. First Barry, calling for ROMNEY to be “open” and “transparent” and now we have Wasserman Schultz, DNC head, criticizing Romney for having money in a Swiss Bank account, WHEN WASSERMAN SCHULTZ HERSELF HAD MONEY IN A SWISS BANK! And she invested in businesses that outsource. As for Romney, his money is in a blind trust. He doesn’t control, nor does he know, where it’s invested. Anybody who has money in a money market probably is invested overseas, too. Same with pension funds. Unfortunately, it’s impossible not to “invest” overseas, when so many companies are global now.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/obama-tops-romney-outsourcing-of-jobs

    “While jobs may have been outsourced under Romney’s watch, he was not directly responsible for such outsources. His business made numerous investments, and some of those investments happened to be in firms that relocated American jobs overseas. Claiming that Romney’s affiliations makes him responsible for the outsourcing of jobs, as the ad does, than President Obama’s affiliations make him responsible for the outsourcing of even more jobs.”

    The story goes on to list some of Barry’s associates and how they outsourced jobs and are proud of it.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/07/10/republicans-fight-back-on-outsourcing-charges/

    How Romney is fighting back against this new meme. “”Over his four years in office, Obama promised that he would focus on creating ‘jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced,'” the site says. “However, as he racked up trillions in new debt, billions of dollars did go to create jobs that were outsourced or spent overseas. Whether it is electric cars made in Finland or solar panels in Mexico, taxpayers would be astonished to learn that their hard-earned money went abroad for jobs that weren’t created in the United States.””

    They cite FactCheck, which, on cue, of course, spins for Barry and claims the money was spent here. I don’t believe a WORD FactCheck writes. Why should anyone?

  18. Mitt Romney is speaking in front of the NAACP on Wednesday. Rumblings of the vp announcement coming soon.
    2+2= announcing veep pick Allen West?

    • He’s too white for them. http://washingtonexaminer.com/liberal-group-calls-romney-too-white-for-blacks-to-like/article/2501754 Contains a racist video by a liberal group that, of course, claims it’s all a joke.

      The video has a mock Romney advisor who claims””blacks don’t like us and we’re about to give a speech to a whole lot of them.”

      He also says to the candidate, “you are so white, you are extremely white, you make Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel,” before advising the Romney actor never fully seen to “go on out there and get all Mormon, Martin Luther King on them, you’re going to be great.” According to a news release, The Message said it plans to use videos to “say things that Democrats are afraid to say, connect with young voters-many of whom are alienated by today’s political climate, and give smart and insightful voices an opportunity to contribute to the debate.”

      The group is directed by Razor & Tie co-founder Cliff Chenfeld, former Media Matters for America president Eric Burns, former AOL chief creative officer and co-founder of theknot.com Michael Wolfson, and former New York Times journalist Andrew Zipern.”

      So funny. As we see cities calling the Secret Service simply because someone has a parade float that mocks the Obamanation, we have these “former” AOL, Media Matters, and NY Times employees creating RACIST parodies about Romney. So, imagine the Republicans making a similar racist parody of Obama. Imagine former Rush Limbaugh employees, former FOX News employees, former WSJ employees being on board. How would that fly? And note that they mock his religion, too, even though Barry being Muslim was off limits in 2008 (and now) and was enforced by the Obama Truth Squads. While we’re at it, let’s imagine a Romney Truth Squad.

      • WARNING. IT’S NOT FUNNY AT ALL. They have no sense of humor, so … All they have is their hate. They see everything in black and white. One-dimensional. What idiots. This is the best they can do?

  19. Another fake “Indian”? Now James Earl Jones is claiming to be part Indian and because his grandmother was a racist, that’s how HE knows that the Tea Partiers are racists, too.

    “Peter Boyles Show”

    “Joel Gilbert an Islamic history scholar and writer/director, comes on the show in this hour to talk with Peter about his newest film, “Dreams from My Real Father,” and about President Obama.”

    [audio src="http://www.khow.com/cc-common/podcast/single_page.html?more_page=1&podcast=fullshow_boyles&selected_podcast=07102012peter7am_1341930499_30066.mp3" /]

    • After watching that video of George Obama and other videos of Mark Ndesandjo, I’m beginning to accept that some man was the biological father of all three of them. Their looks and their mannerisms–the head tilt, the smile, etc.–are too similar. These guys, if you believe the stories, were not raised together. Were not raised in the same culture, even. So these mannerisms must be genetic, not learned behavior from family or culture.

      On the other hand, this author says he talked to a friend of FMD who apparently believes that FMD is the father. Somewhere, this author got the information that SAD instructed her father to give FMD, in essence, visitation rights. He’s also talked to FMD’s neighbors. Interestingly, he points out that Barry’s mentor became “Reverend” Wright, as soon as FMD died. I’m still holding out the possibility that FMD truly was just a mentor because SAD wanted him raised as a “red diaper baby”, although why Stan wouldn’t be enough to accomplish that, is beyond me. She also wanted him mentored in being an “authentic” American black, which by no means he was.

      It’s interesting that Maraniss reports that Barry claims he saw FMD only 10 or 15 times, but this author reports that Barry mentions at least 25 visits in his own book, Dreams.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        I completely agree, Miri….much as I may not want to. When i saw that video of George…well, suffice it to say even though their mothers are different, there definitely IS a strong resemblance between the two.

        • But is the current Barry the same barry that hung out with fmd?

          • Morning Hootie, good question. Like the movie Trading Places ?

          • Good point! When I said that the same man seems to have been the father of Barry and George, that doesn’t mean that it had to be BHO Sr. Actually, I don’t think they look much like BHO Sr. Where did the height come from? BHO Sr. looked stocky, too.

      • http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/07/is_obamas_brother_a_conservative_republican.html

        That’s a story about the interview with George Obama. I like that guy’s take on George. George is a hit in Texas: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/2016-obamas-america-featuring-an-349435

        “An anti-Obama documentary featuring an interview with the president’s brother opened in a single theater in Texas over the weekend and, despite alleged complaints from some consumers who were upset with the film’s content, it grossed an estimated $31,750, a strong showing for any independent release. … Management had planned to show it in one of its medium-sizedauditoriums, but bumped it to one the multiplex’s largest rooms and turned away 200 people.

        Sources say some moviegoers sat in the aisles Thursday and waited as much as 90 minutes to meet D’Souza and Gerald Molen, one of the Oscar-winning producers of Schindler’s List, who was a co-producer of 2016 along with Doug Sain. For some of its regular showings over the weekend, the theater offered 2016 on multiple screens, including three sold-out auditoriums for the 7 p.m. Friday showing.

        If the weekend estimate from the movie’s distributor, Rocky Mountain Pictures, holds when final numbers are reported Monday, the film will have bested the per-theater number posted by the Al Gore documentary about global warming, An Inconvenient Truth, which opened to $123,549 in four theaters in 2006 for a per-theater average of $30,887.”

  21. ….The Real Price of…. Obama’s Prevarications ………. jack cashill
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/07/the_real_price_of_obamas_prevarications.html

    • Can I flatter myself that perhaps he read my post? He has a lot more information than I do. Check out this media hypocrisy:

      The Associated Press alone assigned eleven reporters to fact-check her [Sarah Palin’s] memoir, Going Rogue on the suspicion that she would be a presidential candidate in 2012. By contrast, not a single mainstream journalist — not one — fact-checked Dreams before Maraniss in 2012, and even he pulled his punches.”

      ELEVEN AP reporters fact checked Palin’s book and not one bothers to fact check Barrys. All you need to know about how “unbiased” these “journalists” truly are.

      This is amazing, too:

      “Maraniss would not respond to Rosen’s phone requests for an interview. When Rosen caught up with him at a book signing, Maraniss denied the president “fabricated anything” or “lied to his readers.””

      That tells you all you need to know about how “unbiased” this “historian” truly is. 🙂

      I already caught that Maraniss spins and explains away the discrepancies by saying Obama was just repeating family myths (about Onyango, for example.) So there’s another, paternalistic and not-so-subtle racial explanation: “You know how these folks rely on oral history,” as if the Kenyan family were the subjects of some anthropological study. We already knew they’d do this. That if the truth began to leak out, they’d spin it that he was only repeating what his family told him. That he was too young to actually remember. Don’t we all take what our parents tell us as truth? He’s an innocent victim. He didn’t know or even suspect that the family stories weren’t true. On and on the spin goes. Round and round it goes.

      And then there’s the spin that Obama created the composites and “rearranged” incidents to protect the people involved. He didn’t LIE about the black man at the bus stop story–the one that painted his grandmother as a racist. No, he just moved it around in time. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it happened at all; but if it did, there may have been a very good reason for his grandmother to be afraid, such as just maybe the guy was a pervert, a potential thief, a drunk, on dope, mentally ill, etc. Something that would make Madelyn fearful (a woman alone at a bus stop is always vulnerable). Something that had NOTHING to do with the man’s skin color.

      I truly am convinced that the ONLY reason Maraniss took on this assignment (that he himself implied he didn’t want to do, so why did he?) was to provide SPIN, to provide a “plausible” rationalization to give COVER for Obama in the run-up to this election, simply because they knew that Breitbart and others had thrown down the gauntlet. Obama WOULD BE vetted this time around. And in the four years since the last election, when he wasn’t vetted, we have ALL discovered many of these “discrepancies” and those needed to be addressed and explained away by the Obama faction. Just as over the past four years we’ve had to contend with obot talking points spewed forth everywhere–all of which seek to provide an explanation, no matter how ridiculous, that people who aren’t paying attention can grasp onto.

      • I’m grateful for the insight that Cashill gives into Professor Early’s analysis of Obama’s “prevarications.” (Love that word!) I still think Early is covering a little too much for Obama.

        I read articles that Professor Early writes for a university publication and for the most part, he is fair. Now. Let me explain: I can’t help but remember a certain incident with the police that seemed to be a rather felicitous, career-advancing event for him. Here are a few links (the few that I could still find. There’s far more to the story than what’s in these remaining few articles found on the Web. For one thing, left out is the fact that Professor Early, upon being questioned (merely questioned) by the cops, made a show of placing himself spread-eagle with his hands up, which is how it is that his wife and children found him with his hands up.

        The POLICE DID NOT ASK HIM TO PUT UP HIS HANDS. This was an H.L. Gates type of display. The incident happened on Nov. 14, 1991, in Frontenac, MO.

        WU Professor Interrogated – Police Question Scholar As He Awaits his Wife At Shopping Center; St. Louis Post-Dispatch – Saturday, November 16, 1991
        Author: By Margaret Gillerman

        “Gerald Early, a Washington University literature professor and winner of the prestigious national Whiting Writers’ Prize, says he was stopped and interrogated by Frontenac police while waiting for his wife and children outside a shopping center in Frontenac.

        The scholar, who is black, was waiting outside Le Chateau Thursday evening while his wife was attending a fund-raising bazaar of the Junior League of St. Louis. His wife, Ida Early, is vice president of fund-raising for the Junior League and director of special projects in the business school at Washington University.

        Gerald Early said Friday he was “humiliated” by the experience, especially because of the presence of his two daughters, 10 and 12. …

        “I was Willie Hortonized,” Early said, referring to an election ad for George Bush that was considered racist.

        “I definitely believe it was racially motivated,” he said. “I believe if I were a white man dressed the identical way doing exactly the same things, no police would have been called. …

        [P]olice apparently came in response to a call from one of the tenants at the shopping center …

        “They made my behavior out to be criminal … I did something perfectly normal for a human being. I just walked by” the stores in the mall. … “A policeman … asked me what I was doing, and if I belonged to this gathering. … He said there was some kind of report that a black man wearing khakis was walking around the mall and …’casing the joint.'” …

        [T]he officer asked for identification. Early said at one point he put his hands in his pocket and the officer inquired, “Are you hiding something there?”

        “Then I took my jacket off and held my arms up. … At this point, my wife and children had come out, and my wife got very upset.”

        … [T]he officer denied any racial motivation and said he would follow the same procedures with anyone following a call about a suspicious person. …”

        This story is available only to those with the ability to get library or other access to news databases. There were follow up stories. The jewelry store owner said he called the police because it was late at night, jewelry stores had been robbed recently, and the person was loitering outside his store. He called police rather than try to intervene himself. He would have called police no matter the person’s color. The Mall was closed. He had called police many times on suspicious white people.

        There was a big kerfluffle with the “usual suspects” coming out to second-guess the cops and then citizens writing letters to defend the cops and/or criticize Early for making it into a racial incident by organizing a letter-writing campaign to ask blacks to BOYCOTT these businesses.

        I bring this up merely to point out some of the back story. I was pleasantly surprised by Early’s recent articles. Also his recent equanimity, so I was taken aback when I saw his defense of Obama’s lying.

  22. The New Leviathan: How the Left-Wing Money-Machine Shapes American Politics and Threatens America’s Future
    by
    Jacob Laksin (Author), David Horowitz

    Wikipedia defines “Leviathan” as a sea monster referred to in the Bible. In Demonology, the Leviathan is one of the seven princes of Hell and its gatekeeper.”
    In this new book of insights, “The `New Leviathan’ is a network of billion-dollar tax-exempt foundations and advocacy think tanks that work in concert with government unions and grassroots radical groups to make up the organizational core of the political left. The new Leviathan is not only a political force in the narrow sense of directly influencing electoral outcomes through the support of candidates and parties…”
    This many legged or tentacled Monster Octopus is completely invisible to most voters because it works under the camouflaged umbrella of tax-free entitles with charters claiming a goal of improving the public good. They mostly operate as a major force in pushing progressive liberal agendas.
    One of the most important points detailed in this short book is the “Myth of the Democrats as the 99% and the Republicans as the 1%.” It’s a continuation of the falsehood that the “Republicans are the `party of the rich,’ while progressives speak for the powerless and the poor.” That book proves that this folk lore is exactly the opposite of reality. “Of the twelve richest lawmakers, Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one.” A New York Times article by Christopher Caldwell, “The Democratic Party is the party to which elites belong. It is the party of Harvard (and most of the Ivy League), of Microsoft and Apple (and most of Silicon Valley), of Hollywood and Manhattan (and most of the media)…of Goldman Sachs (and most of the investment banking profession)…The Democrats have the support of more, and more active, billionaires. Of the twenty richest ZIP codes in America, …19 gave the bulk of their money to the Democrats in the last election, in most cases the vast bulk–86 percent in 10024 on the Upper West Side.”
    George “Soros put together a group of billionaires and Democratic political operatives and created a network of 527’s, so powerful the Washington Post described it as a `Shadow Party.’ Its agenda was to seize control of the Democratic election campaign from a party apparatus it felt was in inept hands.”
    “The network that Soros put together consisted of progressive billionaires, government unions (SEIU, AFCSME), grassroots radical organizations like ACORN, and political operatives …”
    “Soros, more than any other individual, is thus responsible for the Democratic Party’s recent shift to the left.”
    In nine chapters with titles such as “The Making of a President, The Progressive Money Machine, Deconstructing the American Identity, Redefining National Security, Socialism by Stealth, Controlled Environments, One Nation Under Unions” and the conclusion “A Disturbing Prospect” the authors do a great job of pointing out the Shadow Party’s agenda without making the reader glassy eyed with all the supporting numbers, stats and charts. The meat of the explanations of the constantly expanding political Octopus is explained in the first 182 pages of the book. There are plenty of those stats and figtures in the Appendices, Notes and Index that may make the reader’s eyes glaze over.
    By the time the reader has reached the appendices, they will have had their eyes opened about what in the world is going on in America. If nothing else, the readers will become very wary of university professors and large tax-exempt foundations with names that suggest all kinds of worthy goals. Solid American names like Ford, Carnegie, and Rockefeller Foundations no longer represent the ideas of the men who set up the Foundations. Those great conservative businessmen’s charity foundations are now run by liberal progressives and are mixed in with other progressive organizations like the “Fannie Mae Foundation.” What exactly does that last foundation do and how are they funded when “Fannie Mae” is one of the economic disasters of the Twenty-first Century?
    There is so, so much totally surprising information included in this volume that most readers will suddenly see a spot light focused on “The Shadow Party” and much that has been hidden will be revealed.

    • Oh, I totally agree. WE MUST ALL PILE ON.

    • Oooh, ooh, ooh. I forgot about that one! BHO Sr.’s transcripts missing, too. What a freaking coinkidink. I thought we were compiling a list of all the conveniently and coincidentally missing documents that relate to Obama. Where the heck is it? Ok. It’s in an update of this post, on page 4, the last page: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/03/29/passportgate-a-history/4/

      Interesting. Did that one get by us? There’s a friend who says that SAD said she met BHO Sr. in the library (not Russian class) as reported in Janny Scott’s book. I swear, you need all these books at once to compare and contrast. I wouldn’t spend a “mill” on any of them.

      The Yirka Club? Note how Jill Hannum spells SAD’s name: Stanley AnnE. This is the same Jill who was silenced by special request of the potus.

      That’s good information that the infamous “dock photo” was taken AFTER Sept. 1961, because some of the people in it weren’t in Hawaii until then.

      • The stories are twisted. Russian class meeting was Ruth, at St Mark’s School in Dallas. Marina Oswald, Michael Payne, Ruth ( Forbes, Hyde etc..) Arthur Young- Middleton, Bell-Textron (Royal LITTLE) etc…
        Stories are mixed up….

        • wait, i thought russian class was ann at u of hawaii in fall ’60??? St. Mark’s school in Dallas – the boys prep school??? am i missing something – wait is that where that ndesandjo kid went? what year did he graduate?

        • right Renee, St. Mark’s in Texas where Ruth Paine(not Payne) was part time tutoring a russian astronomy kid. My these people sure know their Russian. Hey Renee, I found a news article Where pres. George H.W. Bush visits his best buddy at Farish Ranch just outside of Beeville Texas. Some interesting ties with Humble Oil, Hines Baker, Standard Oil of N.J. and Lt.William Stamps Farish III….and Beeville!……Which just happens to be where Elizabeth Anne Duke is from…..who just happened to go to U. of Texas. And all the “good ole boys” in connection with the Bush family are U. Texas affiliates (I mean major affiliates too).What is it about Beeville, just ouside of Corpus Cristi? Elizabeth Duke was in Austin Texas and going to U. Texas in late 1960’s,where she got terminated from finishing her Phd.teaching English. She knew more than one language too.There’s a slew of Bakers connected with U. of Texas and Bush family.

      • And remember , the East West Center was not built till 1962. There was funding for it 1961, but not center built till almost middle to end of 1962.
        In 1961 Duke Kuanamoko was no longer Sheriff in Honolulu, but was made the official who welcomed important people of all stripes to Hawaii. Important figures (I have since found) were draped with large and many leis, like O. Sr. in the dock photo. If it’s 1961 or after, where is the “Duke” welcoming the first black student to Hawaii? In 1961 Honolulu began a Mayoral run city and no longer a sheriff run city, so where’s the mayor too? Is the mayor in that photo? Why no official in the dock photo ,or is there?

        • That East-West Center is a huge source of the lies. So many of the liars are associated with it. They always come to the rescue. And you’re right–they didn’t exist until after Ann left U of Hawaii for Seattle.

  23. Liar Liar Liar….. what more needs to be SHOWN?????
    deft dumb & blind ??? how long can they PLAY STUPID!

    • There’s another good word: Dissembler. And another: dissimulator. If nothing else, Obama is increasing OUR vocabulary, if not his own. 🙂

  24. miri… clap clap 4 U…. of course they read the work you/we do here..
    & yes… flatter yourself all you want.. well deserved 4 all the hours spent…
    each & every worker BEE! Liar above has the name Ann (Niamoto?)
    (Anna Chin?) & Stanley Anne’… has BIG Brown Eyes….

    • perhaps you should read this. I tried to shorten what was necessary to read, but to get the gest of the article, I needed quite a bit of this (this is from a book by a so-called’ Nazi’, but not a Nazi in our sense of a Nazi or Nazi sympathizer. I want you to pay attention about half way down when this man of college education, a military pilot and politician involved and engaged since the 1930’s-70’s till he was assasinated, writes what happened to him in the 1960’s. Infiltration by communists (jews he says) into colleges and gaining access to offices in the US.
      Then notice too, how he describes how the justice department covers for these people. It brought to mind Eric Holder and Mark Rich, ect./

      • alfy, did you give us a link for this? If not, can you? The only One problem is the length. It makes everybody have to roll so far to get to the end of comments. Well, I take that back. I have a lot of problems with having something like this on our blog. It seems to be from a “white power” website. If you give a link, then people are free to go read it, but they lost me on the camel-like comment. That’s racist and/or bigoted. If you want to condense what you believe to be the pertinent points, that’s okay with me. But I don’t want to have the entire thing, in full, on here.

        • Miri, How you so smart? 🙂

          I pulled a phrase out of the above and yahooed it. It came up with only four hits. Guess what number two was?

          americannaziparty.com/White_Power_html/White_Power/Chapter_5.html

          just sayin is all

          • TY, Ray. I’m all for free speech and thought, but we have to be careful with obots lurking. Cannot give the Obama Truth Squad any excuse. Besides which, I truly don’t like theories that blame Jews or Zionists for everything wrong in the world. There are many, many decent, good Jewish people (even some of the misguided ones that supported Obama in 2008. May they see the error of their ways.) Thanks for the link. If people want to read, they’re free to do so. I just don’t want some of what they say here on our blog. While they make good points about certain connections between people who happen to be Jewish and communism, they paint with too broad a brush, imho.

        • Thank you Miri.

    • TY, Zenway. I periodically go look for Cashill’s archives because I LOVE Jack Cashill, but I’m grateful that you linked to this one today. I looked yesterday and he hadn’t written anything new.

      I remember way back when, at another blog, how he was one of the first in what I consider the big guns to take up the cause of exposing Obama, as we were TRYING to do, in our niggling little way. We were so happy and grateful to have someone whose word would carry more weight than ours does.

      Whatever works to get the word out there. However it’s done. By whomever. So long as it gets out there. I think we must live by the motto of PILING ON!

      We all (by now) tend to think alike. “Great minds” always do. Ha! Ha! However many ways it can be said and as often as possible. We can never point out these lies or expose the progressive left ENOUGH.

      I live to be a thorn in the side of phony baloneys like Obama. I’ve hinted before that I had to suffer under the yolk of, or as a co-worker with, people with pathologies similar to Obama’s. (Haven’t we all?) So, their type is my particular pet peeve.

    • I almost missed that Ann Niamoto. So this person believes that Anne/USA is Anne Niamoto, whoever she is.

  25. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/07/barack-obama-keeps-promise-patriot-coal-corp-files-for-bankruptcy/

    A coal company goes under and the story below manages to criticize the coal companies and CONGRESS for lost coal industry jobs, without mentioning OBAMA EVEN ONE TIME! http://www.dailyyonder.com/layoffs-hit-eastern-coalfields/2012/07/03/4155

    Of course, this publication is one of those progressive, lamestream attempts to reach out to and to propagandize flyover country, imho. Therefore, you wouldn’t EXPECT these progressives to mention that this was a PLAN by OBAMA to DELIBERATELY PUT COAL COMPANIES OUT OF BUSINESS. How disingenuous, how corrupt, how biased to ignore the role that Obama’s policies played–the direct role–in destroying these towns and their livelihood. And to make energy prices “necessarily skyrocket.”

  26. This is truly amazing. WND has a story about Maraniss and what he says about the INS agents in Hawaii who wondered about BHO Sr.’s marriages, his promiscuity, and what he was up to. (Remember, he eventually got sent home because of his behavior.) Believe it or not, in his book, Maraniss at least implies that Mr. Dahlin was behaving in a racist manner: http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/immigration-officers-doubted-obama-birth-story/

    “Maraniss writes regarding the memo: “There was a fine line between how Obama acted and the racial attitudes and expectations of those who were working with him, the unanswerable but valid question being whether the official concern was heightened because he was a black man interacting with white women.””

    Now we talked about Mr. Dahlin here and at one point, his son even contacted us to tell us that his father is an honorable man, which we completely believe. We for sure were only investigating the possibly bogus documents released by Obama’s administration (INS works for him now, remember). We can hardly be blamed for holding out the possibility that these documents might have been tampered with, so we looked to see if these agents existed and tried to compare their signatures. But never, never would we ever imply that the man was a bigot. That sounds SO MUCH like a certain potus with a chip on his shoulder who sees racists everywhere (even his own grandmother). And it sounds a lot like progressive “journalists” who script racial morality plays. h/t Jack Cashill. 🙂

    Here are a few posts where we talked about that particular memo:

    On that last one, you might have to scan for the name Dahlin; comments there link to another post, iirc.

    Martin Bashir…. when you stop yuking it up… U TAKE A LOOK!
    http://video.msnbc.msn.com/martin-bashir/48152813/#48152813

    • He’s a Pakistani-Brit, for those who don’t know, so that gives a little insight into his culture and possible mindset and motivation. What an insult to the NAACP to say that Obama is their best success. Snark! The best they can do is a Chicago thug who may not even be black? (Except maybe in the British sense–they call South Asians like Indians and Pakistanis “black” or “colored”.) I wonder if Martin Bashir knows that the Times of India reported that Barry says he’s a “desi”? Is this supposed to be MSNBC news coverage or is it an opinion program like Hannity? If the former, then he’s a poor excuse for a news reporter. I don’t watch MSNBC, not even for laughs, so I don’t know.

      • Desi…Bell-Ball…Castro-Cuba…
        JoAnna Castro…found her a few times when digging…royals and how they connect, globally. So interesting.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desi_Arnaz
        Desi Arnaz was born Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III in Santiago de Cuba to Desiderio Alberto Arnaz II (March 8, 1894 – May 31, 1973) and his wife Dolores de Acha (April 2, 1896 – October 24, 1988)[1]. His father was Santiago’s youngest mayor and also served in the Cuban House of Representatives. His maternal grandfather was Alberto de Acha, one of the three founders of Bacardi Rum. According to Arnaz himself, in his autobiography A Book (1976), the family owned three ranches, a palatial home, and a vacation mansion on a private island in Santiago Bay, Cuba. Following the 1933 Cuban Revolution, led by Fulgencio Batista, which overthrew President Gerardo Machado, Alberto Arnaz was jailed and all of his property was confiscated. He was released after six months when U.S. officials, who believed him to be neutral, intervened on his behalf. The family then fled to Miami, Florida, where Desi attended St. Patrick Catholic High School. In the summer of 1934 he attended Saint Leo Prep[2] (near Tampa) to help improve his English.

  29. STANDING TALL AGAIN….. USA…. So OVER DUE …
    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/07/mitt_gets_standing_ovation_at_the_naacp.html Our Black American’s lets stand together 4 a change
    Let’s get back to work…… the vacation is SO over….

    • I hope that the people who didn’t boo (and maybe even those who did boo) actually listened with open minds and hearts and heard what he was telling them. Obama is a danger to ALL AMERICANS, no matter their color. He’s USING them. (Of course, I doubt that Romney made that point.)

      I read that one attendee said that Romney gave his usual campaign speech and wasn’t “speaking to” them, meaning directly to the blacks in attendance. Why do I suspect that if he had given anything other than his usual campaign speech, with his usual promises, not tailored to fit a black audience, that they’d be out there today, criticizing him for having two separate speeches (like Barry has so many, based upon audience). What would have been the reaction if Romney had two stump speeches, one for blacks and one for whites? (Like Barry does?)

      At least Romney didn’t put on a bogus “black” accent to spout “black” lingo, featuring insulting grammatical errors, like Obama and Hillary Clinton do. Romney spoke to them non-paternalistically, which ought to be a welcome change, considering how the DemocRATS usually speak to black Americans.

  30. *Sorry my posts are always out of order, but whenever I click on ‘reply’, my browser closes.

    In case anyone writing their senator would like documentation that the Constitution trumps all treaties or foreign law, here is a relevant SCOTUS ruling and link to include in your letters:

    The Supreme Court ruled, in Reid vs Covert in 1956, that no treaty takes precedent over the Constitution. This has been the law since 1791.

    For clarity, the ruling states:

    “It would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, as well as those who were responsible for the Bill of Rights — let alone alien to our entire constitutional history and tradition — to construe Article VI as permitting the United States to exercise power under an international agreement without observing constitutional prohibitions. [n32] In effect, such construction would permit amendment of that document in a manner not sanctioned by Article V. The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government, and they cannot be nullified by the Executive or by the Executive and the Senate combined.

    There is nothing new or unique about what we say here. This Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty. [n33] For example, in Geofroy v. Riggs, 133 U.S. 258, 267, it declared:

    The treaty power, as expressed in the Constitution, is in terms unlimited except by those restraints which are found in that instrument against the action of the government or of its departments, and those arising from the nature of the government itself and of that of the States. It would not be contended that it extends so far as to authorize what the Constitution forbids, or a change in the character of the [p18] government, or in that of one of the States, or a cession of any portion of the territory of the latter, without its consent.” http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/historics/USSC_CR_0354_0001_ZO.html
