Who is this Joker, James Eagan Holmes? Updated! (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS July 22, 2012

Who is James Eagan Holmes, the alleged shooter in the Aurora, Colorado, massacre?  Following are some interesting facts, gleaned from various news articles.

James Holmes received a grant from the National Institutes of Health.  (h/t kittycat77):

Last year, he began a doctoral program in neuroscience at the University of Colorado Denver, but he was in the process of withdrawing from the program.

University spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery said Holmes was one of six doctoral students in neuroscience at the school to be funded by a training grant from the National Institutes of Health.

The grant is dedicated to supporting “outstanding neuroscientists and academicians who will make significant contributions to neurobiology,” said Montgomery.

That same story provides a rather strange vignette, which becomes stranger still when one considers allegations (perhaps a hoax) that one news organization originally named a man with a Muslim-sounding name as the suspect.

The first time shooting suspect Holmes walked into Original Aurora Liquor – about four blocks from his Aurora apartment – a year ago, a Palestinian immigrant who works behind the counter mistook him for an Iranian.

“Are you Iranian?” employee Joseph Nasser, 50, asked Holmes, who he said became visibly angry.

“What?! I’m no (expletive) Iranian,” Holmes replied, according to Nasser, who has worked at the store seven years.

Nasser said Holmes looked like an Iranian customer who frequented the store at the time.

One must wonder if this clerk perhaps remembers seeing Holmes in the company of the Iranian. 

Another story tells us that when Holmes couldn’t find a job after college, he worked part-time at McDonald’s before moving to Colorado; the story repeats something that was suggested the day after the shooting by a private investigator–that Holmes may have belonged to an Occupy Wall Street group:

There were reports yesterday he was a member of violent Occupy Wall Street splinter group Occupy Black Bloc. The Batman film is said to portray OWS in a negative light but police believe Holmes was acting alone.

Now that meme has been called into question, too. How could police so quickly come to “believe” that Holmes acted alone, before they had access to his apartment, his papers, or his computer?  Did he act alone?  One witness says that he did not:

As I was sitting down to get my seat, I noticed that a person came up to the front row, the front right, sat down, and as credits were going, it looked like he got a phone call. He went out toward the emergency exit doorway, which I thought was unusual to take a phone call. And it seemed like he probably pried it open, or probably did not let it latch all the way. As soon as the movie started, somebody came in, all black, gas mask, armor, and threw a gas can into the audience, and it went off, and then there were gunshots that took place.

There were numerous reports that Holmes came in via the emergency exit.  If he were already in the theater beforehand, then why would he go out and come back in again?  If it were to don his battle armor and get his weapons, then who called him on the telephone?  There is at least one other “person of interest”:

Late Saturday, reports emerged that police were investigating a second “person of interest” in the case. Citing sources, KMGH-TV in Denver said cops had questioned a man Holmes was acquainted with at the Anshutz Hospital doctoral program from which he withdrew several months ago.

The man was located after police traced a threatening message demanding Holmes’ release to his address. Police said it was unclear, however, if this man sent the message or it was just routed through his address.

There appears to be evidence that Holmes was, indeed, a member of the Occupy “movement”.  This story has what is alleged to be a photo of him being arrested:

Discoveries of Holmes’ Occupy activities also call into question the accuracy of media reports claiming that Holmes’ only past offence is a traffic ticket. Holmes not only had connections to the San Diego Occupy movement, he was the subject of at least one photograph (shown here) being arrested at a San Diego Occupy protest.

This is some very serious stuff. 

We already know that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and a number of other Democrat lawmakers have praised the Occupy “movement” and Obama-mentor and boss George Soros has heavily financed it.

Because that statement is true beyond doubt, what are the chances that we will learn the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in this election year?

Was James Holmes associated with a radical arm of the Occupy movement? 

UPDATE 07/23/12:  The police officers in that photo are New York City cops.  h/t dena; the location is an Occupy Wall Street protest on the Brooklyn  Bridge in New York.  See this link with the photo in the slide show on the left (fourth photo).  The question remains: Was Holmes connected with any Occupy group?  The photo alleged to be of him is discredited, because this photo was taken in New York in October, 2011.  If there’s evidence that Holmes was there, in NYC, then we’ll reconsider; but it appears to be yet another case of false reporting or a hoax.  This  link is where the story originated. There is a supposed facial recognition analysis, but it’s unconvincing, in my opinion.

Continuing with questions to be answered:

Where did Holmes get the money to fund this operation? 

What was his motivation? 

Where did he get the Vicodin he was said to have taken before the attack? 

Where did he get his training in weaponry? 

Who was the person who let him into the emergency exit (which explains how he got that long gun into the theater) and/or who called him on his cell phone that night? 

Who helped him to plan this operation? 

How did he learn to make those “sophisticated” explosive devices that he set up in his booby-trapped apartment? 

Has the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) used as much time and energy or expended as many resources investigating potentially violent LEFT-WING groups as they have investigating Tea Partiers and imaginary Islamophobics? 

Was James Eagan Holmes even on their radar?  If not, why not? 

Do DHS and associated government agencies like the FBI avoid investigating potentially violent left-wing groups like they avoided fully investigating Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, before he killed, because someone in Washington DC determined that his case was too “politically sensitive?” 

Has anybody noticed the similarities between this attack and the attack that took place in Norway nearly exactly one year ago?  The M.O. is very similar.  The public still does not know the truth about Anders Breivik, who, like Holmes, is said to be out of touch with reality.  Are they insane, or are they programmed sleeper agents? Breivik was called a “right wing” extremist, although he’s actually

Other evidence pointed to the opposite, also:  Breivik was no “right winger”, although the media very quickly morphed him into one as a result of political correctness, or worse. The Gateway Pundit has done an excellent job documenting how the media cover up the violence of the Occupy movement, just as they typically ignore or spin any story that is potentially damaging to Democrats or Obama.

We the People have a right to know the TRUTH about this massacre.  Even more so do the victims and their families have a right to know the truth.  Just as the family of Agent Brian Terry have a right to know the truth about his murder.  We the People need answers. 

No, We the People DEMAND answers.  We DEMAND the TRUTH.

  1. Testing…Wordpress acting stupid…testing…

  2. Well, I tried to post the comment (below) at Conservative Monster in response to the blog post “Obama’s radical friends that bombed the Pentagon and James Holmes are more similar than you think” http://theconservativemonster.com/?p=1846. WordPress, which is behaving well here, at the Monster site has repeatedly requested that I log in even though I’m logged in. I’d planned to share it here, anyway, as well, because it’s relevant to the discussion, so here it is.

    They may be familiar, as well, or, at the very least, they share some commonalities. CNN reported this morning that Aurora, CO law enforcement (LE) said that the IEDs, trip-wiring and accelarents in Holmes’ apartment looked like “spaghetti,” that it crisscrossed across the floor like a “spider web.” Aurora LE, as reported by CNN, went on to say that it wasn’t a set up that LE usually finds in the US but, instead, was like those found in “Afghanistan.”

    Holmes had rigged his stereo with a timer to start blaring techno music at midnight and the front door unlocked. Holmes’ plan, it’s been speculated, was that the police would respond to a noise complaint, bang on the door to no response, assume the apt’s occupant couldn’t hear them over their stereo and, so, try to enter the apartment to get the occupant’s attention. Opening the door would have tripped a wire (or wires), setting off the first explosion, which was a big ‘un; it would have set the entire third floor ablaze. This first explosion and blaze would have set off a chain reaction so that Aurora, CO first responders would have arrived to find the entire building ablaze. While Aurora police, fire and medical first responders were being occupied at the apt, Holmes would be busy murdering movie-goers.

    Incidentally, one of his neighbors told LE that she’d gone upstairs to complain about the noise, that she’d even considered going into the apartment to tell Holmes to turn the music down, but decided against it. We should all be so grateful to her and all of Holmes’ neighbors who were at home that night for being patient and easy-going about the noise coming from his apartment. If any of them had been annoyed enough to call the police with a noise complaint, or if that woman’s aggravation had emboldened her enough to push open the door to Holmes’ apt, the number killed and wounded would have been so much greater.

    Did Holmes, himself, wire the apt or did someone else do it for him? If so, who helped him? If he wired it himself, where did he get the blue print for such a “sophisticated” setup (“sophisticated” is an adjective used by CNN this morning to describe the setup)?

    • Like much of what we’ve been speculating about here. Remember that Breivik did a similar thing: He set off a bomb in the city that was timed to go off right about the time he got to that island, so the first responders would be occupied elsewhere. Holmes’s bomb didn’t go off, thank goodness. That neighbor is so fortunate that she didn’t open that door. Or call the police. They surely would have gone inside. The puzzle is why he told them about it when he was caught. How did he know that it hadn’t gone off?

      • Just want to ask since this is an open thread…. have any of you researched public allies? I looked into this about 4 yrs ago and don’t know if info was cleaned out. Mr. and Mrs. were both involved in this. Has to do with re ed camps. So much has happened I forgot about this. I was quite blown away when I read about it. You gals have a special way with research. I remember this had to do with re educating 18-35 yrs olds. Wonder what kind of educating? If this is old news so old and not worth mentioning..that is ok. But I never heard much about this and thought that strange back then.

      • Did he tell LE that he had rigged his apt with explosives? Or did he tell LE that there were explosives in his apt? If the latter, then he may have been trying to lead LE into setting off the explosives by having them enter his apt to search for explosives. If the former, he may have assumed that the building had been leveled by his explosives but LE hadn’t yet connected him and the apt. and he was anxious to take credit for his handiwork.

        • The report was that he told them the explosives were there. One story said he was surprised cops got there so fast, so maybe he thought the explosives went off. With all the confusing and contradictory stories going around, we probably won’t learn the truth until the trial (if then). I saw nothing about prostitutes in that UK story, but there are a lot of photos.

      • Neglected to mention in last posted comment that I’d forgotten that Breivik had also used explosives to divert first responders until reading your comment here. Good call.

  3. “I also find it interesting that the media is more sympathetic to this alleged mass murderer than they were to George Zimmerman.” – Steve Cooper, TheConservativeMonster.com

    Interesting, indeed…

    • I know. Things are topsy-turvy, and it’s just going to be worse before it gets better.

      • I heard some details about Holmes on the radio this afternoon. His grant from the Feds was $26,000 per year. He recently was cut from the program. He wasn’t paying his rent. He spent $15,000 on those mail order packages. He was on food stamps and unemployment. The assumption is, then, that We the People, the taxpayers, paid for a good portion of what he used to make his attack. We paid for his education, too, which is what he used to plan and orchestrate his attack. Somebody says we need federal grant control instead of gun or ammo control. Ammo is their target now, if you can read between the lines of all the lamestream stories. How could anyone know he was “stockpiling” if he can buy ammo so easily over the Web? Well, where in the Constitution does it say that anyone has any business knowing whether or not anyone is “stockpiling” anything. What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” don’t they understand? This guy appears to me to be unbalanced. Was he on psychoactive drugs? If so, then how did he buy guns? After the VA Tech shooting, didn’t we go through this? Wasn’t that shooter on psychoactive drugs? We know Holmes was on Vicodin. A controlled substance. Legally prescribed to him? By whom? Didn’t they prosecute Michael Jackson’s doctor? I’m not saying the doctor should be prosecuted, but the situation certainly should be investigated and the TRUTH should be known to everyone, especially the victims’ families. Was he let go from the PhD program because of his behavior? Was anyone notified? It seems that he began his plan upon losing his position. We just saw Joe Paterno’s statue torn down because he knew something and said nothing. We just saw Penn State punished because their employees knew much and said nothing. It’s CYA time in Colorado, obviously. Will we EVER know the truth?

        For those who want to take guns away from people who had NOTHING to do with this incident, who want to INFRINGE on our Constitutional right to defend ourselves from an overweening government, I say this:

        It was already illegal for him to take the guns into the theater. He did anyway. So who do gun laws control? Only people who OBEY LAWS. 10 people SHOT in Chicago over the weekend. I’d hazard a guess that every one was shot by an illegal gun. It certainly is illegal to shoot people. Do these perps obey laws? No, they do not.

        Holmes managed to set off gas canisters in the theater. If the gas in those canisters had been lethal, he would not have needed the guns. Any high schooler (actually anyone who buys cleaning products and can read) knows how to make poison gas. I won’t give the recipe, but are we going to control the purchase of household cleaning products next?

        How about we stop giving psychoactive drugs to people? How about we stop drugging kids from the age where they first start to “act up”? How about we remove hormones and antibiotics from all animal feed? How about we teach kids personal responsibility? How about we go back to the days of DISCIPLINE in schools? (Do I need to remind anybody about Karen Klein, bullied bus monitor?) Our entire society is broken.

        • http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2012-07-23/james-holmes-colorado-university-studies/56444742/1

          “University of Colorado officials disclosed Monday that mass shooting suspect James Holmes was being paid $26,000 a year for his studies — money that could have financed the cache of firearms, ammunition and explosive devices found in his apartment. … The program to which Holmes was accepted last fall admits just six students a year. Candidates have top grades and “near perfect” test scores, Shur said. They undergo a background check but no mental examination. “No program requires psychiatric evaluation, to the best of my knowledge,”

          Holmes came with “excellent academic credentials,” Shur said at a press briefing Monday flanked by school Chancellor Don Elliman and Executive Vice Chancellor Lilly Marks. Shur and other administrators were at a loss to explain Holmes’ motive, especially given Shur’s comments that the faculty “tightly monitors” its neuroscience students.

          Doctoral students receive free tuition, and most get federally sponsored 12-month grants of $26,000, about $500 a week. Holmes, who was not employed, bought an assault rifle, shotgun, two semiautomatic handguns and 6,000 rounds of ammunition in the months leading up to what police called a methodically planned shooting spree.

          Officials say virtually no doctoral student has an outside job, given the intense nature of the program, which can take four or more years to complete.”

        • The second amendment is not just about the right to defend self and propert from an individual but IS ALSO, and more important actually, about WTPOTUS collectively protecting from or reclaiming America from a tyrannical government bent on overthrowing the Constitution and setting up a new government. This is why the ccw policy is so, so wrong. If the government, that is no longer OF the people and OF the states, knows where the citizens are that have ammo and guns, it is equivelent to handing an enemy a country is at war with the weapons arsenal locations. WTF is wrong with “stockpiling”? To not do so does not protect WTPOTUS, AMERICA, from being overthrown permanantly. Hellllooolo, a citizen’s militia/state’s militia means INDIVIVUAL contribution, not someone else in charge of munitions and guns. THE PEOPLE are instructed to always be prepared to fix things, as the very last step of course, and long after the rule of law has expired, but nonetheless, be prepared. (No, I do not have stockpiles or even close…..)THE DISARMING OF CITIZENS NOT ONLY ALLOWED THE MASSACRE TO TAKE PLACE IT ALSO BESTOWED UPON THE KILLER A CONFIDENCE THAT HE COULD WALK INTO A THEATER AND SHOOT AWAY.
          (Disclaimer: I do not own, legally or illegally, a gun/s nor am I collecting ammo. Shame on me.)

          • So true, What A Hoot. Everything you said. It’s a shame and an example of how this stuff already infringes on our rights that you feel that you must put in the disclaimer about not owning or stockpiling guns. Of course that’s why they come up with the soothing proposals to simply “register” guns. That way, they know where they are so they can confiscate them. Nearly every act of genocide in history BEGAN WITH THE DISARMING OF THE POPULACE. Hitler, et al. The Founders were so wise. It’s also why all the pro-gun-control people constantly talk about how you don’t need assault weapons for self-defense (oh, yeah?) or to hunt. The Second Amendment doesn’t exist to provide people the ability to hunt or even so they can defend themselves in their homes from a burglar. The explanatory clause in the amendment tells all: “being necessary to the security of a free State.” NECESSARY to the SECURITY of a FREE STATE. That means that the REASON for the Second Amendment is to preserve the CITIZENS’ MILITIA so that the citizens can be sure that their “state” will always be “FREE.” To protect themselves and their state from those who would take away their FREEDOM. This is exactly why the globalists’ number one goal is to disarm American citizens. They cannot IMPOSE their world government, their communist unfree world government, when Americans won’t (1) vote to accept it and (2) can and will fight to prevent it.

            • Well said. Also, it is for the citizens militia. Not the State’s militia where the state is in charge. A citizens militia is independent of governments. Oddly, Barry has this right and understands this all too well — Civilian Army anyone?

  4. Miri, et al., look at this. It’s from ORYR, is someone’s post, an Anon. person. Look at the short form of BO’s and compare Mark’s. Notice the titles and the race, too.

    Barack Obama’s half-brother is Mark Kaleokualoha Davis?

    Kaleokualoha despises all journalists that attempt to connect Barack Obama with his father Frank Marshall Davis, whether ideologically or biologically:

    Perhaps Kaleokualoha would be willing to do a DNA test to verify his claim that he is not related to Obama.
    Kaleokualoha lived in the house at the time that the alleged photos of Obama’s mother were taken by Frank Marshall Davis, perhaps, if contacted, he would be willing to go on the record as to whether he ever saw Obama’s mother or Obama at Frank Marshall Davis’s house:

    They look like brothers. Yes?
    Why are the birth certificates so different? Maybe Mara Zebest should have a look!

    A few thoughts:

    1. It would be wise for as many as possible to save a copy of the above photos and documents of Mark Kaleokualoha Davis before they get taken down by him in response to this post.

    2. In comparing the above birth certificates, please note that Mark Kaleokualoha Davis’ from his sodahead.com account that he obviously posted, along with every other kind of document from his life you can think of, reads at the top “CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH” while Obama’s short form from whitehouse.gov says “CERTIFICATION OF LIVE BIRTH”.

    3. Please note the differences in the basic formatting of each birth certificate: There are differences in Kaleokualoha’s and Obama’s certificates that include date stamps (Obama’s looks like an ink stamp while Kaleokualoha’s looks like a pressed stamp, you have to zoom in a little to see it clearly), Obama’s says “African” for father’s race while Kaleokualoha’s reads “negro”, etc., etc..

    4. The childhood photos, at least to me, indicate a family resemblance: look at the forehead (really obvious in all the photos compared) along with the turtle lip and the circle around the mouths, etc., etc..

    5. Kaleokualoha is obviously a prolific blogger and it is easy to learn a lot about him by searching for “Kaleokualoha” or “Mark Kaleokualoha” in Google search engine.

    6. If they are indeed brothers a DNA test can prove it in a court of law:

  5. Miri,
    My comment is stuck in moderation. Please check on it because got very good links in it. It’s a cross-post from ORYR. You may know about it already.

  6. kittycat, I was comparing the two “certificates” and there may be an explanation, at least for the differences in the forms. I don’t remember exactly when the HDOH decided to call all of its BC’s “certificates” rather than the short form being a “certification” (obviously in response to people pointing out that what BHO displayed was a certification, etc etc etc…) but if BHO got that one in 2007 as it is date stamped, perhaps Mark Davis got his copy sometime after 10/08 when that form was revised (according to the notation at the bottom).
    What strikes me about the comparison is how much Mark’s looks like a “real” piece of paper document, especially if you zoom in on it and the other really doesn’t.

    • Yes, I noticed how Mark’s looks like a real piece of paper.

      Those links are interesting. I didn’t know if Miri had all of those pictures or not. I keep thinking that I saw a picture of Mark that looked like BO at a young age. They certainly did favor. Did you notice those pictures?

    • His sure does look REAL. How’s about this for a resemblance?

      • Why are the Republicans splitting over this issue of Huma Abedin Weiner? http://www.theblaze.com/stories/beck-limbaugh-defend-bachmanns-muslim-brotherhood-inquiry-as-gop-leaders-turn-on-her/

        “The Washington Post Tuesday offered four reasons. First, Bachmann simply has greater national profile after running for president, and her words are now held to a different standard. Second, a chain reaction began when John McCain, in particular, took to the Senate floor to attack a fellow Republican. Third, Bachmann simply messed with the wrong woman in Washington, since Abedin seemingly has many powerful friends. Fourth, the “seriousness of the charge,” that Abedin may pose a security threat, is just too ridiculous for Bachmann’s fellow Republicans to defend.

        So far, no confirmation of Huma Abedin’s background check has been released, and Bachman’s questions with four other congressmen into U.S. connections to the Muslim Brotherhood have been demeaned, rather than answered. What is clear that Bachmann is receiving isolated heat for questions she asked with a number of congressmen, and the GOP is turning on itself over this issue.”

        But, you see, it’s “ridiculous.” IS IT? Is it ridiculous to assume that this “isolated heat” is focused on her because they want to make sure she’s not the VP candidate? OR IS IT SIMPLY SEXISM? ARE THE SAME FORCES AT WORK THIS TIME AS LAST TIME? WHOSE BIDDING IS MCLAME DOING, TRYING TO DEEP SIX THIS WIN FOR THE REPUBLICANS, TOO? WAS THE TORTURE INEFFECTIVE OR WAS IT EFFECTIVE? WHY WOULD MCLAME DEFEND HUMA ABEDIN? WHO IS SHE TO HIM? WHY DOES HE CARE? BETTER YET, WHY DOESN’T HE ANSWER THE DAMNED QUESTIONS?

        Instead of answering the questions, they attack the messenger. Let allah sort them out. By their loyalties, you shall know them (or by their blind, PC stupidity). Glenn Beck was on a tear today because, he said, some are calling for Michele to “apologize” or be kicked off the intelligence committee. I dare them to try it. If they want to win in November, they’d better not even try. We the People deserve answers, not persecution of Michele Bachmann. We WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWERS, TOO. How did Huma get a security clearance? Did she get one or was she just given a pass, sort of like how Hasan was not investigated because, hey, it’s “politically sensitive” in this Obamanation?

        She has powerful friends. Yeah, we noticed all the lamestream reporters who call her “Huma” instead of Ms. Abedin-Weiner. We know she’s like a “daughter” to the Clintons.

        How did Barry get a security clearance, btw? Beck was calling on people to bury Boehner, McLame, and the others with emails calling for them to stand behind Michele and answer the damned questions. They owe HER and US an apology.

        Where does Romney stand on this? He’d better be on the right side or things will go bad for him and our country come November, when the Republicans lose again.

        I’m afraid they planned for Romney to lose. They thought the Tea Party would NOT vote for him but the polls look good. The same forces are deliberately trying to alienate the Tea Partiers and other conservatives from Romney. We cannot let this happen. If Romney stands by Michele or at least rises above it, then there is hope that he’s not part of this and that he, at least, is TRYING to win. Why else are they trying to pull defeat from the jaws of victory. MCLAME again. I’ll NEVER forget him standing there and saying Obama is a patriot and a citizen. NEVER.

        I read an article that said that Romney might be fixing to commit political suicide and, once again, pull a McLame and intentionally blow it by choosing a non-NBC, RUBIO, for VP. Again, by their choices ye shall know them. We will know the fix is in AGAIN if he chooses someone who is INELIGIBLE. He’s throwing us and the Constitution under the bus if he does so.

      • She has the vapid, insipid look down pat.

        • “On Page 5, Rep. Bachmann writes, “Given the reasonable assumption that Ms. Abedin has a high-level security clearance, as a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence I am particularly interested in exactly how, given what we know from the international media about Ms. Abedin’s documented family connections with the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, she was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance. If these known and documented family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood would not disqualify someone for a security clearance, what specifically is the standard to be disqualified on foreign influence grounds?” [The letter writer goes on:]

          Deceit and deception should not be practiced in the blessed month of Ramadan. Religion played no part in this issue.”

      • yeah, they’re probably laughing about how easy it is to snow these people, how the likes of them , people are oblivious these days who the real freak,commie,socialists are everywhere…agreeing in the photo above “ain’t it a hoot, don’t you just feel so omnipitant?” She says, “I agree, I’m overjoyed,I mean overwhelmed at the stupidity of this crowd…Hillaary told me it was a cinch.”

  7. I have to say I never saw even the slightest resemblance between Frank and BO, in fact it was hard for me to picture two relatively unattractive people (SAD and FMD) producing a child as good looking as BHO, but those younger photos of Mark definitely (to me) resemble the chubby version of young Barry.

    • I don’t think Frank looks like BO, but I do think that Mark looks like BO, or at least did look more like him when they were younger.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      I agree. He definitely resembles Malcolm though. And Pamela Geller, who seldom backs down, backed down from this assertion quite some time ago, I was surprised because she has more backbone than most of our spineless pols in D.C.

    • the baby photo of O. in his little striped diaper looks like a baby Frank.The main thing that has kept me thinking there’s a possibility that Frank is the father is the full pouchy roll under his bottom lip…..not something you see everywhere. Then there’s the small mole-like discolorations on O.s face, Frank has them…and as he got older they got more pronounced. (It’s a mixed race thing that occurs )

      • Those moles. Exactly. Stanley Ann didn’t have them, nor did Madelyn or Stan the father. Nor did BHO Sr. Does Maya have them? I don’t think so, but can’t swear to it. But FMD AND Barry have a lot of facial moles.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

    During Glenn Beck’s show tonight he talked about a touching video of Alex Boye ( He will be a Restoring Love performer) singing the National Anthem after becoming a U.S. citizen this past February. See the pride! It is what all the illegals are missing! – pride in being a REAL, AUTHENTIC, LEGALLY RECOGNIZED AMERICAN! Singing while his tears flowed with joy at his ACHIEVEMENT! And that it is! He has documented papers unlike the Usurper!

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      May God bless legal immagrants such as Mr. Boye with all of the opportunities and potential riches the USA could formerly offer. Seriously, may God bless him.

  9. Abortionists ordered to warn of suicide risk
    ‘There appears to be little dispute about the truthfulness of the required disclosure’
    July 24

    A federal appeals court affirmed the last provision of a long disputed informed consent law today, ruling that the state of South Dakota is allowed to require abortionists to inform women seeking to terminate the lives of their unborn they would be at “increased risk” for suicide.
    ~
    “As a result of this case upholding all eight major provisions of South Dakota’s Abortion Informed Consent Statute, pregnant mothers will now be informed: (1) that ‘an abortion terminates the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being;’ (2) that the mother’s ‘relationship with that second human being enjoys protection under the Constitution of the United States and the laws of South Dakota;’ (3) ‘that relationship and all rights attached to it will be terminated;’ and (4) the abortion places the mother ‘at increased risk for suicide ideation and suicide,’” he said.

    The court’s opinion said even Planned Parenthood’s own testimony documented a link between abortion and suicide.
    ~
    “Planned Parenthood’s own expert, Dr. Nada Stotland, admitted that one of the studies, which determined a suicide rate after abortion of 31.9 per 100,000 as compared to a suicide rate after live birth of 5.0 per 100,000, ‘indicates an association; not causation, but an association’ between abortion and suicide,” the judges wrote.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/abortionists-ordered-to-warn-of-suicide-risk/

    • I didn’t know that there was a documented link between abortion and suicide and never heard it. I was on the Suicide lines for 10 years – and it was never mentioned in classes or by clients. So this information is interesting. This case occurs when today an abortion was botched in Illinois at a Planned Parenthood org. and a young girl died, so Congressmen are calling for truthfulness from the organization as to how their millions in taxpayer monies are really spent.

  10. Oh Brother. Obama Says Romney “Twisted” His Words By Quoting His Actual Words
    July 24, 2012 Snip

    Barack Obama is on the warpath.
    He claims Mitt Romney is “twisting” his words.
    …By reading exact quotes from cue cards.

    Last week while campaigning Mitt Romney used Barack Obama’s exact words – “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” – to attack President Obama at his campaign stops. Romney read the exact quote from a card.

    Last night Barack Obama lashed out at Mitt Romney during a fundraiser. Obama accused Romney of “twisting my comments” by quoting his actual words!

    Michael A. Memoli carries water for Obama and misreports [lies] his actual attack on business owners in this LA Times report… [Yes, the LA Times that still holds in their safe that incriminating video of Obama at an anti-Israel pro Palestinian banquet!]

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/07/oh-brother-obama-says-romney-twisted-his-words-by-quoting-his-actual-words/

    • Here’s another just for you, Zenway: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/07/sanitizing_obamas_radical_past.html

      “A striking clash between those who feel a profound duty to report that the young Obama was nurtured by Marxists, socialists, and Communists and those who think it is a better idea to erase this information from the public record is on display in two current books. One book provided key politically significant details of a heated debate I had with the young Marxist-Leninist Obama over Christmas break 1980. The other book only confirmed that young Obama and his roommate were both in my vicinity at the time. The gap between how Paul Kengor covered Obama’s Christmas break in The Communist and how David Maraniss covered this same moment in Barack Obama: The Story is chilling. As an eyewitness to young Obama’s Marxist-Leninist ideology, I count myself among those who think it is our duty to report the truth about young Obama, especially if it helps us understand the persistent, contemporary influence of Frank Marshall Davis, the Communist who became young Barack Obama’s mentor. I do not think it is any exaggeration to suggest that in the long run, the mainstream media’s failure to confront the reality of young Obama’s ideological extremism is almost as important than the reality of Obama’s tenure in office. …”

      Rest at the link. This is by John Drew, who personally knew Barry at Occidental.

      • “The back story behind Kengor’s book features the crucial role so many of Kengor’s acquaintances and mentees have played in digging up archival information on the writings of Frank Marshall Davis. Kengor, in particular, credits Spyridon Mitsotakis — an enterprising student at New York University — who discovered that every issue of Frank Marshall Davis’s Chicago Star was available at NYU’s Tamiment Library, a library which also holds the archives of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).

        The political significance of Mitsotakis’s discovery is sobering when Kengor writes that the Library of Congress one asserted it had archives of the Chicago Star but, “… upon taking a closer look, discovered it does not.” Even worse, Kengor shares, “[t]he reels of micro-fiche from the Chicago Star seem to have disappeared from the shelf” (p. 300).”

        Just like so much else has simply “disappeared” from shelves all over the United States. It’s particularly “chilling” to recall that so much has disappeared from the PUBLIC RECORDS THAT BELONG TO WE THE PEOPLE. Sandy Burglar? Did he get a “consulting job” after the Clintons left the WH?

        • “As Kengor writes, “[n]onetheless, whatever our biases, reality is reality, history is history, truth is truth.” After reading Maraniss’s book, I’m chilled that a Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian like Maraniss does not seem to share these commonsense assumptions.

          Maraniss’s book is particularly frustrating to me because he verifies — through the testimony of Sohale Siddiqi, who was Obama’s roommate in New York — that young Obama was on a road trip in the San Francisco area at precisely the time I indicate that I debated the young Obama. Maraniss’s account also indicates that Chandoo made a brief visit to the San Francisco area during Christmas break, 1980.”

    • Davis was a communist and a pornographer. Had Mitt Romney written two youthful poems about a man of comparable interests, that man’s name would be more notorious than “Bain Capital.” As it is, not one Democrat out of a hundred could identify “Frank Marshall Davis.” … Among the more damning is that the Obama nativity story, one told more often than any since Jesus’s, is largely, if not entirely, fictional. On the right, this has been known for years. As to Obama’s paternity, I write in Deconstructing, “The best suspect remained Barack Sr.” Given the murkiness of Obama’s origins, however, research into “Pop’s” role continues, and rightly so. It amuses only those who cling, despite all evidence, to the official Obama fiction of an “improbable love” and a happy multicultural home.”

      • Read comment 12 at this link: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2910047/posts

        Just a snippet from the long comment (FP is Front Page magazine):

        “FP: When did Frank Marshall Davis join the Communist Party?

        [Paul] Kengor: Remarkably, he joined early in World War II, after the Hitler-Stalin Pact—a period when many Party members bolted the Party because they were outraged at Stalin signing that pact with Hitler. That pact, of course, precipitated the invasion of Poland and World War II. Jewish American communists in particular were aghast. The man in Moscow to whom they swore their unwavering allegiance had helped pave the way for the Holocaust.

        I must note that it was also through this group that Davis would work with Robert Taylor, who just happened to be the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.

        FP: That’s remarkable. Valerie Jarrett today is Obama’s right-hand woman in the White House.

        Kengor: Yes, and it’s even more eerie than that. Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s mentor, also worked with Vernon Jarrett in these circles.

        Vernon Jarrett was Valerie’s father-in-law. And it’s worse still. Davis, Obama’s mentor, also worked with Harry and David Canter, two other Chicago communists. The Canters mentored a young man named David Axelrod in Chicago in the 1970s.

        SO, THE TROIKA THAT’S ARGUABLY RUNNING AMERICA TODAY—OBAMA AND VALERIE JARRETT AND DAVID AXELROD—ALL HAVE COMMON BONDS IN CHICAGO’S COMMUNIST CIRCLES FROM THE 1940S. THEIR MENTORS KNEW EACH OTHER. (Emphasis Added)

        I know this is incredible, but it’s true. You couldn’t make this up. No one would believe it. WE’RE BEING GOVERNED BY GHOSTS FROM CHICAGO’S COMMUNIST PARTY GLORY YEARS. (Emphasis added)”

        • Another Davis comrade at the Star was William Patterson, who actually mentored Frank Marshall Davis and was probably more important than any other figure in bringing Davis into the Party.

          FP: William Patterson was a hardcore communist.

          Kengor: Yes, and among his legacies is the Kremlin’s “People’s Friendship University,” which he helped plan in the 1960s. People’s Friendship University became better known as the “Patrice Lumumba Friendship University,” a Kremlin grooming school for third-world revolutionaries.

          This university, the third largest in the USSR, schooled some of the world’s leading terrorists. Distinguished alumni include Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas (You know, Obama’s Palestinian Authority’s “PEACE PARTNER?””

          Roman Obama?

          • “FP: Was Davis a national-security threat?

            Kengor: The federal government thought so. In the book, I present documents from Davis’s 600-page FBI file in which the FBI repeatedly re-certifies Davis on the Security Index. That’s a very serious thing. It means that, in the event of a war breaking out between the US and USSR, Obama’s mentor could have been placed under immediate arrest.

            Needless to say, that’s quite unprecedented for a presidential mentor. With a mentor like that, Barack Obama should have trouble getting a security clearance for a standard, entry-level government job. Instead, Americans elected him right into the Oval Office.”

  11. Romney’s putting on the gloves!

    Romney Blasts Obama on Israel, Iran, Security Leaks in VFW Speech
    July 23, 2012

    Mitt Romney assailed President Barack Obama for foreign policies he said have weakened the U.S., charging the administration with leaking security secrets, proposing dangerous defense-spending cuts, and mistreating allies including Israel while failing to effectively cripple Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

    In a wide-ranging speech on the eve of a six-day trip overseas, the presumed Republican presidential nominee called for a tougher U.S. negotiating stance with Iran and a special counsel to investigate what he said were politically motivated disclosures of national security information by Obama’s aides.

    Romney told the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Reno, Nevada, that Obama’s policies have “exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify, compromised our national- security secrets, and in dealings with other nations, he has given trust where it is not earned, insult where it was not deserved, and apology where it is not due.”

    http://www.newsmax.com/Headline/PresidentialCampaign/2012/07/24/id/446407

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      He had better put the gloves on- and no holds barred- or surely with all of the election fraud that is bound to ensue he will lose.

    • That explains this: http://thehill.com/blogs/defcon-hill/policy-and-strategy/239783-feinstein-backtracks-on-statement-that-white-house-leaked-secrets

      “Senate Intelligence Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) backtracked from her comments Monday that the White House was responsible for some of the national security leaks, saying she did not know the source of the leaks.

      “I stated that I did not believe the president leaked classified information,” Feinstein said in the statement on Tuesday. “I shouldn’t have speculated beyond that, because the fact of the matter is I don’t know the source of the leaks.”

      Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney seized on Feinstein’s remarks in a speech at the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention Tuesday, accusing President Obama of not trying to find the source of the leaks until after the election.

      Feinstein said that she regretted her comments were being used against Obama and said she was “disappointed” in Romney’s remarks. …”

      The hammer comes down on Dianne’s head.

      • It got better!

        Romney’s campaign suggested Feinstein had succomed [sic] to pressure from the White House and Obama’s campaign.

        In a statement, Team Romney compared Feinstein to Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who was criticized by Obama’s team after he decribed an Obama campaign ad critiziing Romney’s private equity background as “nauseating.”

        It looks like President Obama has given Dianne Feinstein the Cory Booker treatment. Yesterday she was speaking candidly about the leaks originating from this White House. Today, she was forced to walk it back. As Governor Romney said today, we need a leader who will take responsibility and immediately halt these security breaches before more American lives are put in danger,” said Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams in a statement.”

        THE CORY BOOKER TREATMENT! That’s good.

  12. Trump: Public not Worried About Romney’s Tax Returns
    Jul 23, 2012

    Real estate billionaire Donald Trump says the furor surrounding Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s tax returns is nothing more than a tempest in a tea pot. “I really believe the whole clamor for Mitt Romney’s tax returns has died down,” Trump said, according to The Hill. “People are getting tired of it.”

    Americans are more concerned over what information President Barack Obama hasn’t revealed, he said. “They’re looking at the things our president has not released, and I think frankly that’s starting to come to the floor. I think they’re saying, ‘Wait a minute, we’d better not keep pushing this tax return stuff, because then the president’s going to have to release things he doesn’t want to release,’ and I think that’ll be devastating to him.”
    ~
    Trump also took a dig at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who said last week that she won’t reveal her tax returns because she isn’t running for president. “She’s always been known as a dealmaker, and it would be interesting to see what those returns say,” Trump said.

    • So true! I was thinking the same thing. Suddenly they’re clamming up because they’re probably afraid that that other shoe’s going to drop and Romney just might say, “Where’re the college records? Where’re the loan papers? Where’s the REAL birth certificate?”

  13. I heard on the radio today that Feinstein is taking back her comments today! Getting some heat when speaking the truth Diane?

    Feinstein: White House Leaked Some Classified Info

    Tuesday, 24 Jul 2012 Snips

    The Democratic leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the White House appears to be responsible for some leaks of classified information. “I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.

    The California lawmaker said she was certain that President Barack Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn’t disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. “I don’t believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it,” she said.
    ~
    Her comments came as U.S. officials said the number of people with access to some of the nation’s most carefully guarded secrets topped 4.86 million in 2011. That’s up from 4.7 million people granted security clearances the year before, likely reflecting new hires approved by Congress as part of expanded clandestine operations in the Obama administration. [So where are the leakers about Obama? Out of 4.86 million – not a one? What are expanded clandestine operations exactly? What are we paying for that we don’t know about?]

    Clearance levels range from confidential to secret to top secret. Top secret clearances in 2011 numbered 1.4 million, down slightly from 1.43 million the year before.

    • This thing she says about Obama reminds me of how Arpaio says that he’s not accusing Barry of forging the bogus bc, or even knowing about it. What IS Feinstein saying, then? That his insiders leak and he doesn’t even know about it? So what does THAT say about his ability as a leader? Were they so quick to exonerate Nixon when he really didn’t know, at first, what his plumbers were up to? What does Huma know, one wonders?

    • she knows what she said. it was calculated and walked back to look like a slip, but she has it out for Obummer.
      Herlong-time friend Kam Kawata died suddenly of a heart attack right around time of the osama bin laden raid. he was in charge of the denver dnc party when Obama had is greek columns in the stadium. he witnessed some odd behavior by Obama that freaked him out. he started talking, ends up dead at 50 something of heart attack with no previous history. she usurped obama’s big announcement about obl at kawata’s memorial. she’s doen a few other things to undermine him on national security. she may be a lib, but she’s no fan of obama. this is all ulsterman white house insider stuff –

      • Good point. It’s time for Feinstein to join with others who still MIGHT be patriots and save our Republic. Or does she only care about her deceased friend and revenge? Whatever the hell happened to Biden? I swear that guy had me fooled. Back in the day, when he’d blather on those committees, I really did think at the time that the guy cared about this country. What has become of him? I would never have voted for him on account of, well, he’s a DemoncRAT, but I did actually once believe he cared about the safety and security of our people.

  15. Hey, didn’t BO say once that his dad fought in WWII? Or am I thinking of something else? Seems that I remember that, and everyone was saying, that can’t be correct, BO, Sr., wasn’t in WWII.

    • He said that–that his father was in WWII. Everybody just assumed he slipped and meant his grandfather. Was FMD in WWII? I don’t remember. I do recall some lying story that said that “everybody” in the neighborhood back then called FMD “Pops”. You know what that is, another lie to lead people away from the truth. I recently read another article, was re-reading old articles, where a girl who knew FMD and remembered Barry and Stan visiting called FMD (who wasn’t her father) “DADDY”. NOT Pops. Daddy. Maybe as in, Daddy-O. They didn’t call him Pops. The neighbor kids called him Daddy. Barry called him Pops, in the poem.

  16. The reason that I even mentioned the above about WWII, maybe it was really BO’s daddy in it, if it was Frank.

    • This has nothing to do with FMD (I don’t think) but this is a good comment by seizethecarp at Free Republic, with my comments in brackets.

      “I just got back from Barnes & Noble with Pulizer Prize-winning author David Maraniss’ 600-page annotated historical biography “Barack Obama: The Story, which I have obtained to see what Ruth Baker Ndesandjo said about baby David Obama in her videotaped interview with Maraniss. this was her first and only interview according to Maraniss in his CSPAN Book TV video on the book, IIRC.

      In the Index on page 632 there is the following in the alphebetical listing:

      “Obama, David Opiyo, 245-46, 249”

      So David Obama is mentioned on only three pages of the book under that name.

      Page 245:

      Page 245 is the first page of Chapter 10, “Marked Man” referring to BHO Sr. as a doomed man and describing the events leading up to his death. The chapter begins with the introduction of David to the world giving him a verifiable birth date (an easy date to remember) and birth location for the first time that I have seen:

      “Barack Obama had added another son to his disparate family just before Barry and Ann left for Indonesia. In Nairobi, on September 11, 1967, Ruth gave birth to her second child, David Opiyo Obama.” [OH, YEAH. SEPT. 11]
      Page 246:

      “When he landed an important job as senior planning officer at the Kenya Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) during the same month that David was born, they moved to a new place in Woodley Estate; they had money again and servants to cook and clean and care for the children.”

      Page 249:

      Ruth and the boys joined him for one long trip to Luoland in 1968. Mark was three and David one. They stayed in Nyang’oma Kogelo with his step-mother Sarah, and Hussein Onyango, and took a side trip down to Kanyadhiang. Obama was the first member of the family to bring a white woman home. His relatives seemed impressed by Ruth. “She was comfortable and could eat anything that was cooked here,”said Charles Oluoch, a member of the Obama compound in Kanyadhiang.” [THIS ENTIRE BLIP IS TO LEND CREDIBILITY TO AND ADD A “STORY” FOR THAT PHOTO OF RUTH WITH THE TWO BLACK KIDS AND BHO SR. LOOKING MORE LIKE HER CHAUFFEUR THAN HUSBAND. THE PART ABOUT THE FIRST TO BRING A WHITE WOMAN THERE IS TO LEAD ANYBODY AWAY FROM BELIEVING ANN WAS EVER THERE BEFORE RUTH. SO PAT, ALWAYS SO PAT. However, David looks older than 1 in that photo.]
      (snip)

      “The real trauma came once they returned to Nairobi. David had contracted malaria during the visit, and it erupted violently after a brief incubation, sending him to Nairobi Hospital. ‘I was screaming and yelling,’Ruth remembered. ‘I was breaking down terribly at the hospital because I thought my baby was dying. But he got through it.’”

      Those are the only three passages in which baby David Obama is mentioned.

      Note that two living tribal clan witnesses to the 1968 visit of baby David are mentioned, Sarah and Charles, and also a possibly verifiable hospitalization of David having contracted a reportable illness is documented.

      I wonder if Baby David was attended to by the famous Nairobi pediatrician, Dr. Ang’awa, a man alleged in one claimed BC to have delivered BHO II. Dr. Ang’awa was not murdered until February 8, 1970. [WE NEED TO ADD HIM TO THE DEAD POOL LIST!]

      Note that on page 5 of the photo pages, a photo of the gravesite of Barry’s great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, is shown at the top. This person is likely the source of David Opiyo Obama’s middle name. His mother raised Mark as Jewish and likely named David as a Jewish first name and then gave BHO Sr. the choice of middle name. [SO WHY GIVE MARK A CHRISTIAN NAME? OPIYO MEANS ELDER OF TWINS. DID THEY SHOW OBAMA OPIYO’S GRAVE TO LEAD PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE MEANING OF OPIYO, WHICH IS A NAME GIVEN TO RELATE TO SOMETHING CONCERNING THE BIRTH OF THE SO-NAMED INDIVIDUAL? THEY DIDN’T NAME PEOPLE AFTER OTHERS; THEY GAVE THEM NAMES THAT TOLD SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR BIRTH. OKOTH–IT WAS RAINING. AUMA–BORN FACING DOWNWARDS. OPIYO–ELDER OF TWINS.]

      I have seen no evidence to refute this narrative given directly to Maraniss by Ruth and the Obama relatives including numerous verifiable claims of fact.

      That being the case, the family picture of Barack Sr., Ruth, Mark and David is circa 1970.

      David’s death, it turns out, is reported under the name “David Ndesandjo” on page 629 of the Index:

      “Ndesandjo, David, 496-97” [BUT WHERE IS DAVID’S GRAVE?]
      Page 496-47:

      Auma told Barack that she was planning a trip to New York, a prospect that thrilled him. He said she should stay with him, and was eagerly anticipating her long-awaited visit when she called again to say the trip had been canceled due to a tragedy in the family. The roads of Kenya had claimed another victim, a son of Mr. Toad. David Ndesandjo, the younger son of Obama Sr. and Ruth Baker, now Ruth Ndesandjo, half-brother to both Barack and Auma, had been killed in a motorcycle accident. The word from Nairobi was that David, unlike his older brother Mark, had laid claim to his African heritage and essentially broken away from his white mother and identified himself with the rest of the Obama clan. Now he was dead. If Barack discussed this call with Genevieve, she could not remember it.”

      It is noteworthy that Barry’s alleged girlfriend at the time has no recollection of any call to Barry informing him of the death of his half-brother, who was supposedly being grieved over by the daughter of Kezia who was dumped in favor of David’s mother, acording to the narrative. The book says at age four Auma (called Rita at the time) was taken away from Kezia’s care and boarded at a Catholic convent school in Nairobi and expected to treat Ruth as her mother when visiting her father. The description of the Auma call regarding David’s death appears to have been lifted intact from “Dreams,” IIRC, an Ayers-written novella. [INDEED, AND AUMA VISITED BARRY IN CHICAGO, NOT IN NYC. ONE WOULD CERTAINLY THINK HE’D TELL GENEVIEVE THAT HIS BROTHER JUST GOT KILLED IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT.]

      Curiously, there is no index entry for Mark Ndesand, only an entry for Mark Obama:

      “Obama, Mark, 207, 209, 249, 399, 496, 567, 568”

      Page 207:

      (Re: 1965) “Mark was born late that fall, on November 28. His Luo name was Okoth, which means ‘born when it is raining.’”

      Page 209: (Ruth and Mark flee to Boston for three weeks in 1966)

      Page 249: (Mark and David taken to Luoland in 1968 and stay with Sarah and Hussein Onyango)

      Page 399: “Before dying, Hussein Onyango had met a grandson who was half white and Americannot Barack II, the baby bull thousands of miles away, son of Ann, but Mark, in Nairobi, son of Ruth.”

      Page 399 contradicts page 249. On page 249 it says that Hussein Onyango met TWO half white babies. According to Ruth, he met BOTH Mark (3 and David (1), but on page 399 only meeting Mark is mentioned. Perhaps he wrote page 399 before his interview with Ruth and didn’t cross-check. It took Maraniss four years to write the book.

      Page 496: (referred to only as brother of David at time of accident that killed David)

      Page 567-68: (Mark is home on vacation from studying physics at Stanford when Auma drops in unannounced on Ruth with Barry) Ruth: “She hadn’t alerted me, as I remember. I like to be alerted. This was pretty traumatic, She said ‘This is Barack.’ Or ‘This is Dad’s son from Hawaii.’ Now this was a time when I couldn’t face something like that, okay? And everyone wanted to know about Obama Sr., and as I remember it I closed up.”

      We don’t FREAKING need ANOTHER complicit DemoncRAT. He ought to be disqualified, but it sure would be better for the entire country if that happened after it was too late for the DemoncRATS to substitute ANOTHER commie sympathizer in his place, to carry on the corrupt “fundamental transformation of America.”

      • Another thought: Gathering a database of “birthers”? Trust no one. They sure do buzz right across who put this ad out.

    • Long ago when all info starting showing up about MULTIPLE ss#’s and residences, I think MA was in the batch. Maybe someone was quietly searching MA while making a fuss over CT and drawing attention there for the scrub-dubbing.?? Who knows. They may be correct with MA and that does not invalidate CT.

  18. Here is another one of their ads. This one has the fake green sign in it. I think this was proven to be a fake. Why are they making these mistakes in these adds?


    “Who are you Barack Hussein Obama?”

    • They bring up all the good points about what’s wrong with him (except they don’t say he’s not eligible) but that fake “welcome to Kenya”, Barry’s birthplace sign? Red flag. Is this yet another campaign to make “birthers” look loony, outside the main stream? To drum up sympathy for him? I put nothing past these people.

      There are conservatives running in local races against other conservatives who claim that “Mr. X is ‘too conservative.'” It’s like what they’re saying about Michele Bachmann.

      On the other hand, they may KNOW that he’s damaged goods now. That new book by Kengor is DEVASTATING to Barry’s candidacy. The American public did NOT take well to Barry’s recent comment about how, if you have a business, somebody else built it for you.

      They likely know that they need to join in, damage his reputation publicly enough, so that they can THEN “replace” him on the ticket with someone else. They won’t dump him otherwise, because they FEAR the black backlash. No DemoncRAT can win without the black vote. It’s probably why they shoved Hillary aside in 2008, because to “diss” the blacks by “allowing” her to win might have made all the difference. Blacks might have stayed home. McLame might have won. As is usual for Barry, he wanted to run unopposed and be a shoo-in. He never wins fairly and he usually wins by eliminating all competition. By any means necessary.

      After reading the excerpts from Kengor’s book, I do believe that he WAS “chosen” LONG AGO for this position. The only way they can do it, though, is by stealth because once Americans KNOW he’s a commie, he’s out of there. That they don’t say Barry was NEVER eligible is a “tell”. The DemoncRATS will be discredited forevermore if it’s KNOWN that they KNEW he was ineligible but put him in there anyway. They won’t discredit him openly, themselves. They will do THAT by stealth, too, and make it look AS IF it’s the Republicans doing it. All the better to get their way and damage Republicans in the process. Then Hillary can come in, demonize the “conservative majority” for exposing Barry, pretend that her hands are clean, and there she is, Miss America. The patriotic beloved ex-first lady, come to save the day. With Huma Weiner by her side. If this is the plan they’re going with at the moment, no WONDER they are so vicious about Bachmann’s allegations. Anything that damages Hillary is bad for them because WHO ELSE could they possibly substitute? Is there ANY DemoncRAT left that has the remotest chance to win? They have figuratively killed off all the “blue dogs”. Name a DemoncRAt who’s NOT complicit, who is TRULY “moderate”, and who had nothing to do whatsoever with this Obamanation.

    The only thing shocking in this, is Janet Napolitano and the host of Obama psycho creators expected more of these “too much reality” delusional orbs to be acting out, and they have not. Tavistock and flouride have kept the lid on, even if Obama was viewing the American Tea Party as this Joker group and why ABC and the media have been given talking points to point all in that Sarah Palin direction. The Tea Party people though have God as their anchor point, while the Obama voters drift with his messiah, and the filtered few James Holmes just prey on others in small quantity.~ Lame Cherry

    The liar

    There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind right now that the cabal-backed Obama regime will stop at nothing to win the 2012 election. The deliberate murder of innocent Americans is just part of the plan and is only masked by the way in which it is accomplished. Whether its from deliberately poisoning the Gulf of Mexico, “breitbarting” dozens of individuals, letting terrorists into the United States to bomb airplanes or Times Square, sending our soldiers into kill zones with bean bags as weapons, shooting up people in a grocery store parking lot or a theater, or allowing guns to walk to Mexico and back. This is a murderous regime that doesn’t even pretend to hide it any more.

    Try to wrap your arms around this America: Americans are expendable, collateral damage, useless chattel to be herded into a corner and enslaved, jailed, shot, poisoned, or blown up. For the boys like Obama, Holder, Jarrett, and Naps Napolitano, the ends justify all means. And the end they seek is the end of America—a fundamental change where hope and change masked the intent to bind us in rope and chains.

    While not excusing previous administrations of their false flag events, Obama’s murder false flag record is growing:

    The Gulf of Mexico oil disaster
    Airplane crash that killed the entire Polish government
    Ft. Hood shooting
    Giffords shooting in Arizona
    The Occupy Wall Street movement
    Bin Ladin’s re-killing
    Deliberate flooding of the Missouri River in 2011
    Assassination of mideast leaders, including the recent assassination of top officials in Syria’s government
    Assassination of Andrew Breitbart
    Fast & Furious
    Drone porn
    The Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting
    etc., etc., etc.–a chilling display of murder

    That Eric Holder is Obama’s right hand conspirator in this effort is in perfect sync with Holder’s involvement in the Oklahoma City bombing, the first WTC bombing, Waco, Ruby Ridge, and the Elian Gonzales fiasco. None of this is by accident. Beginning with the usurpation of the Presidency, the foreigner in the White House is actively waging war against Americans. Stepping on the bodies of Americans is the only way he can lift his sorry ass.

    Invariably, each of these false flags is designed to divert attention from one of two things: (1) the destruction of the Constitution (free markets, free speech, 2nd Amendment), or (2) his birth narrative and foreign origin. Does anyone think it just coincidental that the shooting in Colorado happened four days after Sheriff Arpaio’s latest press conference, where Obama’s so-called birth certificate was exposed as a definite forgery or just a few days after the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of the U.S. Government was exposed?

    Obama will make a personal inspection of the scene visit to Colorado to renew his call for destruction of the Second Amendment pay his respects to the victims. This is like his drone porn–he has to go to the scene of a murder with blood dripping from his teeth and hands… something he is glad to see. Watch his expression at the scene or when he speaks–it will be cold,calculating and without compassion. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

    The Colorado Shooting: Who Paid for the $20,000 in Military-Grade Equipment?

    It is very likely that the Colorado shooting was a false flag event…and by discussing it as such does not diminish the tragedy of the losses suffered there.

    While the cabal was expecting most Americans to go into a period of grief counseling for those who lost their lives on July 20, some took a look at the suspicious reports immediately surfacing from the tragedy which indicates this was most likely a staged event.

    First, we have the set-up or planting the idea.
    Then, in an area usually crawling with police, there were none there in the area (h/t Tenacity)
    Next we have the stories that he was a loner and this was ‘out of character’
    But there was a witness, and it looks like he had accomplices
    How did a poor Ph.D. student who had trouble finding work get $20,000 dollars of military-grade equipment, including guns, tear gas, gas masks, body armor, and sophisticated devices to booby-trap his apartment?
    Was the shooter a part of the Black Bloc/Occupy Wall Street crowd?

    “The Case for a Well-Armed Citizenry”

    Why didn’t anyone go after the shooter in the theater? Why didn’t anyone fight back? Aurora’s strict gun control laws prevent the concealed carry of weapons and provide strict registration requirements, but this did not prevent the shooter from legally buying guns and using them.

    I cannot help but think, if one person in that audience was carrying a gun with them, that person could have saved lives. Unfortunately – despite what some of the Left have said – this tragedy is an example of the importance of our Second Amendment Rights.~CNS News

    While Obama/Holder/Naps/Hillary will push for gun control, and the UN small arms treaty is up for HRC’s signature, the shooting in Colorado just reinforces the need for an armed citizenry. History is replete with examples of the millions of people killed by their governments upon the confiscation of hand guns and passage of laws banning them.

    Yes, concealed carry laws are about trust. Law abiding citizens trust other law abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons responsibly. And just as 71-year-old Samuel Williams did what he saw as his duty in the Ocala Internet Café, perhaps saving the lives and property of a dozen or more innocent victims, if he had been seated in the front row of the theater in Aurora, Colorado we might not be mourning so many deaths today.

    Make no mistake–Obama will kill to win.

    • Dave m, I saw that video of the 71-year-old guy and it was terrific. Today, we hear that Holmes allegedly actually yelled at some of the victims for being on the floor, bent over to pull them up, and then shot them at point blank range. Now imagine a guy, skinny like Holmes, in the dark, with a gas mask occluding his vision except for right in front of him. He’s bending over, using one or both arms to help lift someone off the floor. What’s wrong with this picture? Nevermind.

      Now there’s news that he sent a package to a psychiatrist, at the college, where it allegedly sat in the school post office for a week until the cops just now found it. No explanation why it wasn’t delivered to the psychiatrist. No explanation why he would send this package to this particular person, but in the package, he LAID OUT HIS PLANS TO KILL. But oddly enough, the package just sat there. When the guy got a package from someone else, they just happened to find it. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/07/25/exclusive-movie-massacre-suspect-laid-out-plans-in-package-mailed-to/#ixzz21ekNtOS8

      “Police and FBI agents were called to the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus in Aurora on Monday morning after the psychiatrist, who is also a professor at the school, reported receiving a package believed to be from the suspect. Although that package turned out to be from someone else and harmless, a search of the Campus Services’ mailroom turned up another package sent to the psychiatrist with Holmes’ name in the return address, the source told FoxNews.com.”

      What’s wrong with that picture? Nevermind.

  23. HOLMES won’t talk… just SPITS’ “HOPES” to spin a WEB & disappear?
    BABY HOLMES.. wishing I had a front row ticket.. love 2 greet ya fool ~
    http://dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2178304/James-Holmes-Gunman-used-police-evidence-bags-hand-puppets-mother-admits-feared-disturbed-years.html

    • I have to wonder if that professor did open that package after it arrived July 12 and then did nothing. Why did he call the cops to say a package that was NOT from Holmes might be from him, leading to the sudden discovery of the other package, which was from Holmes, supposedly unopened and hidden away in the campus post office. I’m thinking of what happened to the guys at Penn state recently. Why would Holmes send a package with all his plans to THIS particular professor/psychiatrist? Was he treating him? If not, since he is a psychiatrist and knew him, then what did he notice about his behavior? If it’s true that Holmes was not drugged in court, then what person looking at his behavior would think it’s normal? What the heck is true? We hear that he’s spitting at people and having to wear a mask. Cops said he wasn’t spitting on people. Both can’t be true.

  24. baby holmes… split from a girlfriend … struggling in school before dropping out… multiple prostitutes months before… his “plan” was to kill the stars of the movie… nice guy….

  25. PD Audio. Second shooter in blue and white shirt w/ red backpack. Body in RV and device ?
    http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1933765/pg1

    • There’s been a big increase in gun sales and people signing up for concealed carry permits and classes in self-defense since the shooting. One gun dealer reported a 300% increase in sales. I don’t see how they can square their “one gunman” story with this audio tape. Who was the guy in the blue and white shirt? Why were they chasing him (they lost him) 20 minutes after they arrested Holmes? Holmes was arrested as he was taking off his armor and preparing to drive away. Slower than his accomplice? He was surprised cops got there so fast: So he planned to get away. He didn’t expect them to get there so fast because he expected his apartment to explode. One question, though: why did he set the timer on the stereo instead of just on the bombs? If he wanted them to go off and create a diversion, why would he add the element of relying on someone to open the door, when all he had to do was set the timer on the trigger? He’s acting crazy (perhaps) because then he won’t be questioned about his accomplice. Surely anyone trained to do something like this will also be trained how to stymie investigators. The cops last night reaffirmed one shooter. How do they square that with WITNESS reports of the other guy, with the common sense realization that there had to be more than one to wreak such havoc, and with the audio that proves they were chasing someone after Holmes was arrested?

      • I was lying awake in bed in the wee hours of last Friday morning when the news of the massacre broke. The first reports were that one shooter had surrendered to LE in the theater parking lot and that LE was seeking an accomplice. By morning (real morning, when people who can sleep are waking up), around 5 or 6am, the live reports were that THE SOLE suspect and lone shooter had been apprehended but no explanation of earlier reports had been offered. I found that suspicious at the time but attributed it to LE tactics, to more easily catch a suspect because he doesn’t know he’s being sought. I now know that’s not the case. While I still find it odd that LE initially believed there was an accomplice, I’m not convinced that one exists.

        Further, I’m not sure that the guy that witnesses say purchased a ticket, took a seat in the theater, and then left through the exit-only door wasn’t Holmes. I’m also not sure that that person, who I believe was Holmes, was prompted to leave the theater by a cell phone call received and not by an alarm he’d programmed into his cell phone. During the interview that I saw, the witness said that the man who left the theater appeared to do so because he received a cell phone call. He didn’t say that he answered a cell phone call, only that he received a call. With cell phone sound settings being user-defined, the witness couldn’t know if the cell phone sound notification was that of an alarm or a call received.

        “One question, though: why did he set the timer on the stereo instead of just on the bombs? If he wanted them to go off and create a diversion, why would he add the element of relying on someone to open the door, when all he had to do was set the timer on the trigger? ”

        He wanted the police, responding to a noise complaint, to open the door and set off the explosions because “officer down” calls take priority over all other calls. On the other hand, a building engulfed in flames, flames so high and heat so intense that there’s neither the possibility nor the need of performing search and rescue, is the immediate and initial job of the fire department. Except for presence, required involvement of the police dept could be minimal (especially at a time when officers are needed to stop a mad gunman in the act of mowing down movie-goers). Heavy involvement of the police dept wouldn’t be required until fire investigators determined explosive devices and accelerants had caused the explosion(s) and resulting flames, which would not happen until the site cooled enough to enter, possibly days later. Even then, most of the work would go to crime investigators and detectives and not patrolmen. Anyway, taking out police officers by setting them up to set off and become the first victims of the explosives and fire would have been a diversion of magnitude enough to buy him the time he needed to kill and then flee.

        If this is correct, then Holmes’ anticipated behavior of his neighbors was absolutely wrong.Their patience and their tolerance of what they must have assumed at the time to be his thoughtless and inconsiderate behavior (blaring the same techno “song” repeatedly from midnight to 1am) ruined his planned murder of police officers and the diversion of the entire police force that would have followed, in turn, causing him to be apprehended by LE. He assumed his neighbors to be as cold and selfish, as lacking in empathy, as he is. He was so sure of it that he gambled his freedom on it…and he lost. I find the poetic justice in that to be beautiful.

    • “The document, which critics say has been framed by countries hostile to U.S. interests, allows for future amendments to be approved by just two-thirds of states showing up at an amendment conference. That means it could be agreed to by the U.S., put into effect and then changed over Washington’s objections. And even if the U.S. Senate refuses to ratify it, the deal could have a huge impact on the global arms trade, where the U.S. is the biggest player.

      “This alone is grounds for rejection,” said Ted Bromund, senior research fellow with the Washington-based Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, as he pored over the text.

      But even without amendments, there is plenty for the U.S. not to like in the draft, say critics. The treaty could set the stage for legal challenges to U.S. aid to allies like Israel and Taiwan, and it could also expose private information about U.S. gun owners.”

      • “U.S. Second Amendment is protected only by sovereignty and “lawful private ownership” references in the draft’s preamble – a part of a treaty that is not typically legally binding.

        He also lamented that the draft fails to specifically exempt civilian arms from its “covered items.”

        Critics say these shortfalls are an invitation for gun control activists to cite the treaty in their campaigning even as the treaty’s supporters say it is clearly about international arms transfers.

        Mason said even hunters and sportsmen traveling over national borders with their firearms could find themselves at odds with the treaty if the current draft stands. …

        Activists on the political left are angry ammunition is not listed as within the treaty’s scope. The United States was among countries that sought the omission as U.S. gun lobbyists and their supporters said tracking ammunition was unworkable. …

        At least 58 U.S. senators have pledged to not ratify the measure “if it includes civilian firearms,” Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president, told the UN treaty conference this month. For a treaty to become U.S. law, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to ratify it. Still, experts told FoxNews.com that if the Obama administration signs on and the Senate does not expressly reject it, the treaty may later be enforceable in the United States as international “customary law” – absent a successful challenge based on the Constitution.”

  26. Neuroscientists debunk idea Colorado suspect James Holmes was supersmart

    (USA TODAY) — James Holmes seemed well on his way to a career as a scientist.

    His résumé after he graduated with honors in neuroscience from the University of California-Riverside in 2010 cites experience in the lab dissecting birds, studying their musculature and analyzing data and graphs to measure molecules.

    A video from a science camp he attended after high school shows him making a presentation about temporal illusions, misfirings in brain cells that lead to misreading the passage of time – the feeling that time stands still. In the video, Holmes refers to “an illusion that allows you to change the past.”

    He was one of six students admitted to the University of Colorado’s graduate program in neuroscience last year. He received a $26,000 federal stipend.

    But neuroscientist David Eagleman says Holmes’ credentials were no better than those of an average student. The mass killing suspect is no elite neuroscientist, says Eagleman, of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

    “He was just a second-year grad student,” he says. “He didn’t know anything.”

    (snip)

    Eagleman, a former researcher at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., where Holmes attended the eight-week summer camp when he was 18, said the young man had a reputation as a “dolt.”

    Eagleman didn’t know Holmes but says the teen parroted his advisers’ words in his presentation on temporal illusions. A video of the speech was first reported by ABC News.

    “He was just given the presentation to read,” Eagleman says. “He wasn’t any sort of superscientist when he was 18.”

    (snip)

    John Jacobson, a former researcher at Salk whom Holmes listed as his mentor during the camp, told the Los Angeles Times that the teenager was a “mediocre” student who was stubborn and did not listen to direction.

    “I saw a shy, pretty socially inept person,” he told the newspaper. “I didn’t see any behavior that would be indicative of violence then or in the future.”

    Jacobson told the newspaper Holmes “should not have gotten into the summer program. His grades were mediocre. I’ve heard him described as brilliant. This is extremely inaccurate.”

    He said Holmes’ high school transcripts showed Bs and no advanced-placement classes. He was accepted to the camp because he had done computer programming, Jacobson said. He was never Holmes’ mentor, he said, but Holmes worked in his lab to write a computer code for an experiment Jacobson was working on. He told the newspaper Holmes never finished it.

    “What he gave me was a complete mess,” Jacobson says.

    Holmes’ résumé suggests he was trained in dissection of birds and mice, performing chemistry tests and attaching small gene tags to cells to target them for treatment.

    “Recipe-book stuff, literally, that every biology student should learn,” Eagleman says. As for the grant, Eagleman says, “Holmes is being depicted as some sort of brilliant researcher who won a rare grant, but there are thousands of research students in this country with such grants. Everyone has one. There is nothing elite about it.”

    Holmes had difficulty with a June 7 preliminary exam, given orally by three university faculty members. It is designed to evaluate students’ knowledge at the end of the first year. Three days later, Holmes dropped out.

    Batman shooter wants to know how film ends: Report
    July 26, 2012 AFP Aurora

    The man accused of killing a dozen people at a Colorado screening of The Dark Knight Rises wants to know how the film ends, a stunned jail worker reportedly told the New York Daily News.

    James Holmes, 24, ‘was trying to look like he was sincerely curious’, a person who witnessed the bizarre incident in the jail’s infirmary on Tuesday told the paper.

    “Like he had no idea why there was anything wrong with what he was saying. It was sick … I think he’s trying real hard to act crazy.”

    His eyes glazed and his voice flat, Holmes reportedly asked a jail worker “Did you see the movie?” and then “How does it end?”

    He repeated the question when the worker ignored him.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    It’s become plain to me that the Batman character and movies had nothing to do with Holmes’ committing mass murder. For whatever reason(s) or motive(s), he wants LE and the public to believe The Dark Knight Rises is key but I’m not buying what he’s selling. Perhaps he’s trying to prove to himself and/or instructors and former instructors who, from his point of view, are his detractors because they refused to recognize his genius, that he is, indeed, as brilliant and of superior intelligence as he and as those who promoted him into the doctorate program believed him to be. He will prove his superior intelligence by duping the justice system into letting him, literally, get by with, not just murder, but mass murder committed in such a way as to get the attention of the entire world. Or maybe he’s following the instructions of others who’ve thrown Batman into the mix as a distraction, to keep focus from turning their way and, basically, to cause confusion (just another form of disinformation).

    Just so everyone knows, I’m not a fan of comic books, Batman the character, the old Batman tv show or the Batman movies. The Batman movies are just too dark (both the visuals and the story lines are dark) for my taste. I also have a hard time caring what happens to Gotham City, an urban area populated by people so f’ing stupid that they can’t see that Bruce Wayne is Batman, not even when Michael Keaton’s ugly, old woman-looking mouth was right there on the face of Bruce Wayne and at the same time was the only facial feature not covered by Batman’s mask. People that stupid deserve The Penguin and whatever he has in store for them.

    • Great commentary. I agree with you about Batman and the rest, too. IF he wasn’t brilliant then HOW did he get that doctoral grant? EVERYBODY gets $26,000 grants? B students? I think not. The father (adoptive, if we believe the UK story) IS brilliant. Maybe he wanted to live up to his dad. Anything is possible but it’s not everybody who gets disappointed in life who goes out and murders in cold blood like this. There’s something wrong with this picture. Everywhere.

      • If it’s true that his father is a genius, then maybe he helped his son become the recipient of the grant(s), called in favors of old friends or whatever. For that matter, if his father is a genius, then it’s possible that he’s crossed paths with Eagleman and Jacobson, ticked them off and, holding grudges since, they’re now taking advantage of the current focus on the junior Holmes to talk smack to the press. Hey, I watch The Big Bang Theory; I know how nasty scientists can be toward one another. :p

        I guess right now everyone and anyone who’s had any contact with the younger Holmes is going to have something to say. We won’t know for sure until all is resolved which statements made by whom are true and relevant.

  27. Agreed, but find it interesting.

  28. Re: Aurora

    Its amazing to me that the blaring techno music in that apartment didn’t trip the wires in that zombie’s apartment. Just saying, because it rattles the dishes in my china closet when its playing upstairs. I swear it even bugs the fillings in my teeth.

    ~~ also ~~~ saw the news clip at least 10 times with the gas mask lying on the ground outside the theatre on the initial reports. it too, was on a loop and what was really weird, the reporters were saying the “the lone wolf” was caught wearing it. I was yelling at the TV: Really?? watch your stinking news reel – its on the freaking ground!!

  30. http://gma.yahoo.com/james-holmes-psychiatrist-contacted-university-police-weeks-movie-005231424–abc-news-topstories.html

    The psychiatrist who treated suspected movie-theater shooter James Holmes made contact with a University of Colorado police officer to express concerns about her patient’s behavior several weeks before Holmes’ alleged rampage, sources told ABC News.

    The sources did not know what the officer approached by Dr. Lynne Fenton did with the information she passed along. They said, however, that the officer was recently interviewed, with an attorney present, by the Aurora Police Department as a part of the ongoing investigation of the shooting.

    Fenton would have had to have serious concerns to break confidentiality with her patient to reach out to the police officer or others, the sources said. Under Colorado law, a psychiatrist can legally breach a pledge of confidentiality with a patient if he or she becomes aware of a serious and imminent threat that their patient might cause harm to others. Psychiatrists can also breach confidentiality if a court has ordered them to do so. ”

    With all jockeying to cover their own, maybe we will eventually learn the truth.

  31. rrestlessrraven

    I’m starting to think that they might have faked this guys death, fried the brain and inserted the fall guy. The real Holmes is being used for something very secret, possibly against his will. I’m throwing up a link to a great site, with the before and after pics of mr holmes side by side, and you can clearly see that its 2 different people. He is/was way too intelligent to be wasted on such a crude campaign.

    • Oh, yeah. There’s another coinkidink:

      Dark Knight killer James Holmes ‘is now a Muslim who prays five times a day’

      James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day.

      The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith.

      The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded. …”

      Tell me how a locked-up, insane guy has the wherewithal to suddenly become Muslim? Jihad all along? A new way of jihad? Is that what this is all about? Nothing would surprise me.
