We the People of the United States Say

 Happy Birthday!

United States Constitution

United States of America Constitution!

September 17, 1787

We owe our Founders  a huge debt of gratitude for their wisdom in drafting and providing us with a document that gives our country a solid platform of government and grants our  citizens  life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  We embrace its God inspired tenets and hold its words close during these days of turmoil.

The CQ Press, tells the story of the signing of the U.S. Constitution by our Founders.

On September 17, 1787, the United States Constitution was signed by 39 of the 55 delegates attending the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Delegates from 12 states had gathered at the Convention with the purpose or revising the nation’s first written charter, the Articles of Confederation. Instead, they discarded the nation’s first system of government and created a new one they believed would provide the United States with a strong national government to deal with the many challenges of the Confederation. The Constitution was subsequently ratified by each of the original 13 states.

    • Happy belated birthday, Constitution! Sorry I missed your day. Thanks Bridgette and Papoose for reminding us. Did Barry mention it, anywhere?

  2. How nice.

    “MSNBC trashes ‘Dreams’ documentary on Obama”

    “MSNBC’s Alex Wagner on her “Now” show today bashed Joel Gilbert’s documentary “Dreams from My Real Father,” which posits that Barack Obama’s real father was not the Kenyan goatherder, but Frank Marshall Davis, a communist party activist.

    Gilbert noted that so far MSNBC is the only television news outlet to report on his documentary, even if the report was intended to demean the film.

    “I ran the ad in the New York Post to provoke interest in the public and the media, but ironically only MSNBC had the courage – if you want to call it that – to report on the provocative ad,” Gilbert said.

    “The only time Fox News has mentioned ‘Dreams from My Real Father’ is when Megan Kelly announced it as part of a film festival taking place in Tampa, Fla., during the Republican National Convention. Hannity has not called, but he has my phone number.””

      “Media bypass: ‘Dreams’ mailed to 1 million”

      “One million copies of the documentary film that presents evidence Barack Obama’s real father was Communist Party activist Frank Marshall Davis have been mailed to households in the crucial presidential-election swing state Ohio.

      Filmmaker Joel Gilbert told WND his mass distribution of his documentary “Dreams from My Real Father” is an attempt to bypass an establishment media blackout.

      Despite the fact that the DVD of his film has been the No. 1 documentary on Amazon.com for weeks, Gilbert said, the establishment media “is still refusing to cover the film, so it remains hard to break through nationally.”

      • I was kind of disappointed that his big news was only that he mailed his video to people free of charge. While good news and he’s a patriot for doing it, I HAD HOPED for something better–like more of those photos he says he has that are indisputably SAD.

  4. Did Obama send a ‘gay’ ambassador to Libya?
    Homosexual behavior punishable by imprisonment in Muslim nation
    Published: 2 hours ago Snips

    Did President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton send a “gay” ambassador to Muslim-majority Libya, where homosexual behavior is a crime punishable by imprisonment?

    Believing the “Arab Spring” countries would be encouraged to embrace democracy through left-leaning diplomats dedicated to understanding and dialoguing with Muslim communities, did a State Department under Secretary Clinton that refused to establish rules of engagement providing embassy personnel Marine Corp protection take the additional risk of placing a gay ambassador in Muslim countries?

    The question comes amid claims in the diplomatic community that J. Christopher Stevens — the U.S. ambassador to Libya brutally murdered on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — was homosexual. The question is worth serious exploration, even if Stevens’ sexuality cannot be determined with certainty, because U.S. government Foreign Service agencies are actively recruiting from the homosexual community for diplomatic assignments overseas, including in the Middle East.
    ~
    A Washington Post obituary noted Stevens never married and had no children.

    ….I can only tell you that he was a 52-year-old man without wife or child, at least one he claimed in public.” Esselink noted the phone call Clinton made to inform his next of kin of his death went to his sister, a Seattle doctor.

    However, Kevin DuJan, the openly homosexual founder of HillBuzz.org, told WND he spoke with two sources in Chicago diplomatic circles who said Stevens was homosexual.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/did-obama-send-a-gay-ambassador-to-libya/

    • Are they kidding? They would do this or ask him to go? Stevens had a choice and he had to know what Muslims think of gays. This is beyond the pale. I never even wondered if he was gay or not. It didn’t enter my consciousness. The US Foreign Service is deliberately (read that word again) deliberately recruiting from the gay community. Why? It gives more reason for the murder if he was. I wonder what the gay community thinks about them being recruited to handle jobs in places that discriminate against gays and murder them. This is the new policy of the Foreign Service Department under Obama and Hillary. I would say to gays, think twice if you choose life over death

      I thought something similar about Hillary Clinton and Condi, being appointed as Secretary of State, being female, representing the U.S. in Middle Eastern countries knowing they do not respect women. Why would they listen to them when their culture denigrates women? We may be modeling how acceptable women are in our country, but these backward people are living in a different century.

    • I didn’t want to say because it seemed irrelevant; but in hindsight, it’s a good question to ask. He’s close to Obama’s age. How did he come to be the ambassador? What is his relationship to Obama? Did they go to school together? Or did Stevens also know Barry from childhood, like Barry’s white girlfriend and Geithner, because all their parents worked for the State Dept. or some other U.S. government diplomatic entity? I’m only asking questions that are important to know answers to. I’m not disparaging Stevens in any way. But how he came to be there and what he was doing there are important questions that I hope somebody is asking.

      So now they suddenly come up with a video, allegedly of good Libyans “saving” the ambassador, allegedly finding him in a dark, locked room, all by himself, still alive, hours afterwards, in the now-DESERTED consulate. 30 others already fled to the safe house. Oddly enough, one of the “finders” happens to be what sounds like a reporter with his videographer.

      Just like with Obama’s false life narrative and all the phony photos that are given fake provenance in multiple books and news stories, the videographer “explains” every photo we saw earlier.

      What looks like the ambassador being dragged, carried, (possibly post-rape, with his belt open in photos), deceased already, rabble snapping celebratory photos of his body, as he’s taken way and goes missing for 12 hours.

      Every base covered. They weren’t dragging him around, celebrating and showing off his body. Nope, they were crying out for an ambulance and taking him to the hospital, where they worked diligently for 90 minutes to revive a corpse. Do you believe it? I don’t.

      Days later this video shows up. Dare I ask if anybody SEES the words allegedly being spoken, being spoken ON this video? Or perhaps was it dubbed over later, with the words being spoken off camera, and that’s why this huge story took days to come out.

      This is a third-world country. This is a huge story. Did this guy sit on a valuable, newsworthy video for days, only to release it later? Did he release it for free and not sell it to a news organization? (I don’t know. I’m asking. The answers would seem to indicate something about the credibility of it all.)

      How can it be that the most important person in the consulate was NOT protected? A story I read today said he was with a security guard. Who was that guard? THAT GUY somehow “got separated” from Smith and Stevens. How did it happen that the guard somehow got out with the other 30 people (suddenly there were 30 there).

      That guy is the one security guard that Smith wrote about on his gaming site. How could it be that Sean Smith AND the ambassador were also then separated from each other and Stevens ended up left behind (remember–most important guy in the place), nobody notices him missing, Smith is killed elsewhere and also left behind, and Stevens is in a dark, locked room, all alone–a room that the rioters have to crawl through a window to get into? Does this make sense? It doesn’t to me, but it makes sense in the sense that this is par for the course for the Obamanation. They see what evidence is out there and then they send minions out to EXPLAIN AWAY WITH PLAUSIBLE AND EVEN IMPLAUSIBLE SPIN, every little detail.

      They HAD to wait to see what came out. Once they saw what’s out there, then they send out this bogus video allegedly of these good Libyans helping the ambassador.

      It’s said that the so-called anti-Muslim video. which is only a trailer for a non-existent movie, has the offensive words DUBBED IN. The actors don’t SAY what they allegedly say about that prophet’, AND you can read their lips to see they don’t say that. In addition, the actors told the media what they REALLY said. SO, WHO changed this video and put it on the Web and for WHAT REASON?

      • It appears he was with the foreign service for many years serving in the Middle East, so he knew what he was doing. He was only in Tripoli for 4 months before he was targeted.

        The Wiki history on Chris Stevens was created on September 12th!

        J. Christopher Stevens (April 18, 1960 – September 11, 2012) was an American diplomat and lawyer who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya from June 2012 to September 2012. A member of the Chinook Indian Tribe, Stevens was killed when the U.S. consulate was attacked in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012

        Stevens joined the United States Foreign Service in 1991. His previous overseas assignments included: Deputy Principal officer and Political Section Chief in Jerusalem; political officer in Damascus; consular/political officer in Cairo; and consular/economic officer in Riyadh. In Washington, Ambassador Stevens served as Director of the Office of Multilateral Nuclear and Security Affairs; Pearson Fellow with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; special assistant to the Under Secretary for Political Affairs; Iran desk officer; and staff assistant in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.

        He had served in Libya twice previously: as the Deputy Chief of Mission (from 2007 to 2009) and as Special Representative to the National Transitional Council (from March 2011 to November 2011) during the Libyan revolution. He arrived in Tripoli in May 2012 as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
        ~
        This, along with the symbolism of the date of the attacks (the anniversary of the September 11 attacks), led to speculation by the Libyan officials that the raid was pre-planned – possibly as revenge by Muammar Gaddafi loyalists for the Libyan Civil War and for the death of Muammar Gaddafi a year earlier.
        [That’s a new one about revenge for Gaddafi’s murder.]

        • Chinook Indian tribe? He looks as Native American as Elizabeth Warren. I’m just sayin’. How weird. Wonder what percentage the Chinooks require for membership? It varies by tribe. This story says, “Born in 1960 in northern California, Stevens had been a diplomat for two decades after previously working as an international trade lawyer in Washington, D.C., according to his biography on the State Department website. Stevens started his career as a Peace Corps volunteer, teaching English in Morocco, then spent more than 20 years working on issues related to the Middle East and North Africa.” http://www.chinookobserver.com/free/president-obama-hillary-clinton-pay-tribute-to-slain-chinook-member/article_5264d608-fe9c-11e1-a9de-0019bb2963f4.html

          Now that story gives a different surname for his mother. It also says that “Stevens’ mother, Mary Commanday, is the first cousin of Chinook tribal elders Catherine Herrold Troeh and Charlotte Davis, both of whom are well known in Pacific County, the historic homeland of the tribe that met Lewis and Clark at the mouth of the Columbia River.”

          Now Catherine Troeh is interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_Troeh

          “Catherine Herrold Troeh (January 5, 1911 – June 28, 2007) was an American historian, artist, activist and advocate for Native American rights and culture, especially in the Pacific Northwest. She was a member and elder of the Chinook tribe and a direct descendant of the great chief, or tyee, of the Chinook people, Comcomly.

          Troeh was born in Ilwaco, Pacific County, Washington, 24 minutes after her identical twin sister, Charlotte. Both sisters went on to attend school at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon, sometime around the year 1933. Catherine Troeh later enrolled at the University of Washington and received a bachelor’s degree in public health.

          Troeh worked as a nurse for several Seattle area hospitals and for the Seattle Health Department. She also opened and owned an antique store in Burien, Washington.

          Troeh was an active member of the Chinook tribe. She was the only woman to join the newly formed Chinook Tribal Council in 1952. She wrote a Native American-focused newsletter, which was distributed at least once a month during her lifetime.

          Troeh was a major advocate for federal recognition of her Chinook tribe. In addition, she worked closely with Washington’s Duwamish tribe. She attended the opening and celebration of the Duwamish’s new tribal cultural center and longhouse on June 23, 2007, just days before her death.

          Troeh collaborated with a number of important Native American activists in Washington, including her older sister, Betsy Trick, Pearl Warren, and University of Washington anthropology professor Ema Gunther. Together the women founded an organization called the American Indian Women’s Service League (AIWSL) in 1958. The American Indian Women’s Service League was created in response to a growing trend of Native Americans moving from reservations and to large cities beginning in the 1950s. The main purpose of the league was to help counsel newly arrived Native Americans on the cultural differences and new challenges of modern American urban life that were not faced in their reservations.

          The AIWSL gradually evolved into several other Native American organizations, including the Seattle Indian Health Board, the United Indians of All Tribes, and the Seattle Indian Center. Troeh served on the board of the Seattle Indian Center until her death.

          In addition to her work as an activist, Troeh was a strong promoter of Native American culture. She collected Native American artifacts. Troeh often signed her letters “member of the Chinook Tribe Allottee 1865 Quinault reservation.” Her unusual way of signing letters referred to the 80 acres (320,000 m2) which were granted to her by the U.S. federal government.

          Troeh died in Burien, Washington at the age of 96. She was survived by her twin sister, Charlotte, and two children, Charlotte Killien and Arnold.”

          • The cousin’s obit: http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2003769826_troehobit01m.html That was NURSING school she and her sister went to. I wondered. Wiki links to another story that says that that other tribe hoped for federal recognition when Clinton was president but their “hopes were dashed” when Bush was in office. The Chinooks weren’t a tribe until the 20th century. Because of the new laws allowing them to have land they owned declared “Indian land” that’s exempt from a lot of national and state laws, there were a lot of new tribes created, especially when they wanted to develop casinos.

            This is fascinating. Wiki says, “Some are currently engaged in a continuing effort to secure formal recognition of tribal status by the U.S. Federal government. The U.S. Department of Interior initially recognized the Chinookan as a tribe in 2001. Subsequently, the department first reconsidered and then, in 2002, revoked this status.

            Now in modern times, the Chinook people gather at the plank house to remember the great heritage that they have. They gather in the winter months to mark the time when the food they would eat would change from berries and other plant life to smoked meats and other preserved things.” They also had slaves. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinook_people

      Did you read this story that was linked from WND? How’d I miss that one?

      A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House.

      “It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan, who was a gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator.

      “Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought he could possibly be president,” said DuJan.

      DuJan, founder and editor of the Hillary Clinton-supporting website HillBuzz.org, told WND he has first-hand information from two different sources that “Obama was personally involved in the gay bar scene.”

      “If you just hang out at these bars, the older guys who have been frequenting these gay bars for 25 years will tell you these stories,” DuJan said. “Obama used to go to the gay bars during the week, most often on Wednesday, and they said he was very much into older white guys.”

      Obama, DuJan said, is “not heterosexual and he’s not bisexual. He’s homosexual.”

      DuJan gave WND a list of “gay” bars in Chicago where older customers hang out and tell stories about how Obama, prior to 2004, frequented visited to pick up men for sex, including several on Halstead Street, widely known as an “uber-gay Chicago street.

      Writing in HillBuzz.org Tuesday, DuJan said rooms at Man’s Country bathhouse are still referred to as the “presidential suite,” or the “Oral Office,” because “the current President used to haunt the place when he was a just another Illinois state senator that no one had ever heard of or cared about.”

      DuJan said he believes that, someday, “all of this is going to be as public knowledge as JFK’s affair with Marilyn Monroe and the other women he cavorted with while married to Jackie.”

      “Someday,” he said, “in the next 10-20 years, everyone will know all about Man’s Country, and the place will no doubt get a plaque of sometime commemorating that place as a gay hangout for the future leader of the free world.””

      • Hey, I know it’s twisted but maybe Obama got Jessie Jackson stashed in the whack house cause he was busy gettin too close to Muchelle….knowing that Obama is really a “Man’s Man”. I mean it crossed my mind way back when Muchelle was in Spain. You do know that Jesse Jackson was there at the same time as Muchelle. It is true. You don’t suppoooose…do you. Poor Jesse….I can’t help but think something is odd with his sudden situation..

        • You brought up Jesse, and it reminded me that supposedly he went to Africa and is returning today with several American men who were supposed to be executed. He got them released, and Jessee was told by the president there never to return to his country. If anyone sees the story please post it. I will try to locate it too. Jesse did something worthwhile finally… or it appears that way. Don’t know who the men were and if they were good or bad guys.

        • I thought it had to do with what Jackson really knew about the goings on when they were wheeling and dealing, threatening and conniving, over Obama’s senate seat. Weren’t the rumors early on that they were leaning on Blago to give it to Val Jar?

          • Somebody from Jesse Jr.’s camp was willing to pay for Obama’s seat at the time is what I recall. Jesse Jr. rejected the pay-to-play rumors involving himself and Blago. His mental illness – (severe depression according to his aunt) – might be because the Ethics Committee is investigating him in the Senate seat scam. (The committee run by demoncrats that let Rangel off is called ethical? The committee that won’t investigate Obama is ethical? )

            “Golden,” the whitewashing of a Department of Justice crime spree
            Sept. 16, 2012

            Background – On October 16, 2011, we concluded a ten-article series concerning U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, which first posted here in on September 19, 2011, with this summary: “So, what are the facts and circumstances that we know that collectively tend to prove, or sustain by their consistency…the hypothesis that Patrick Fitzgerald is a politically-driven, not jurisprudence-driven, prosecutor whose image as an intrepid, unbiased crime fighter is a media-created fabrication?
            ~
            The arrest of Blago was timed, not to stop a crime spree, or the selling of a Senate seat – since the latter notion is built on the myth that, once Blago got paid for appointing someone, the act was immediate and irrevocable. The arrest was timed to save Congressmen Jesse Jackson, Jr., from criminal prosecution for bribing a governor in order to receive a Senate appointment. Connect the dots. It was about saving J.J., Junior.”

      “Chris, the oldest of three siblings, grew up in the upper-crust society of Northern California in the 70s. His father was a judge, and then a councilman representing Davis City, which is about as liberal a community as you will find in America. His mother was a cellist with the San Francisco symphony. His parents divorced when Chris was a teen. His dad went on to become an assistant California Attorney General; remarried and had another daughter. His mother, who retained custody of the children, married a music critic for the San Francisco Chronicle. In high school Chris belonged to the Model UN Club, and went to Spain in an exchange student program. He went to his dad’s alma mater, UC Berkley, as an undergrad, where he played excellent tennis and belonged to a fraternity.

      The year after college Chris spent teaching English in a remote village in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco as a Peace Corps volunteer. That was where he fell in love with that part of the world, and began learning Arabic. (He already spoke French.) His mother said of him “He had sand in his shoes.” When his year in Morocco ended, he returned to California, earned his law degree, and tried to settle into the life of a Washington DC trade attorney. After a year and a half, he put his head down on his desk one day, said he couldn’t do this anymore, and quit.

      Chris was much happier in the Foreign Service. He had different titles and different official jobs, but what he did best is what they call “outreach”. Chris served in Jerusalem, in Damascus, in Cairo and Riyadh, and most importantly, in Tripoli, and everywhere he went he established a network of contacts.”

      Chris was in California, upper-crust society, through college. So that means he was in CA when Barry was there. When Barry was hanging with upper crust society white girls and visiting McNear’s family with his Pakistani friends. Was the father of the girl Barry was visiting also a judge? My memory is shot!

      What did Stevens do in Libya?

      “All of Chris’ work at making contacts came into play during the Libyan uprising of 2011. Secretary Clinton sent Chris Stevens and a group of about a dozen Foreign Service and “security” (read CIA) agents into Benghazi at the height of the fighting on a mission worthy of a James Bond movie. To the annoyance of the State Department, Wikileaks published some of Chris’ messages from this mission. The group sneaked into Libya on a Greek cargo freighter. It was Chris’ job to make contact with the rebels, and bring them together with ex-pats and U.S. friendly leaders who would take over when the government fell. The hardest part was getting them to trust one another. Someday, there might be a movie of Chris’ mission into Libya. I am dying to know if the agent sent by France to do the same job worked with Chris, or as a rival? What we do know is that Chris was successful. His reward, ironically, was the Ambassadorship that would lead to his death.”

        Waiahole ruling carries wide implications A UH gathering gauges the landmark decision on Windward water

        Monday, October 15, 2001
        By Diana Leone dleone@starbulletin.com

        The Hawaii Supreme Court ruling that required returning a significant portion of Waiahole Ditch water to Windward Oahu streams is a landmark case for Hawaii that could have more wide-ranging effects, experts agreed recently. “It’s the most important decision on Hawaii’s water trust … the first one to bring it under one central beam,” said Gilbert Coloma-Agaran, chairman of the Department of Land & Natural Resources and the Water Commission.

        The case is still in process, waiting for the state Water Commission to decide how to resolve certain elements of it. But already more water is flowing in Waiahole, Waikane and Kahana streams than during the years Oahu Sugar Co. took the water to Leeward cane fields.
        And the state Supreme Court is clear about recognizing water as a “public trust” asset.

        In its August 2000 ruling, the court wrote that “the public trust (is) the right of the people to have the waters protected for their use.”That protection includes “comprehensive resource planning” and “provision for traditional and customary Hawaiian rights, wildlife, maintenance of ecological balance and scenic beauty.” Which means that Windward streams are as important as the interests of Leeward farmers who want to use diverted water for crops, said Joseph L. Sax, a public trust law expert at the Boalt Hall Law School in Berkeley, Calif.

        Sax and Coloma-Agaran were among those who addressed a packed auditorium of state officials, attorneys, environmentalists and concerned residents on the University of Hawaii campus last week. Sax said the Waiahole case follows in the footsteps of other key water rights cases on the mainland.

        Before the early 1980s, laws tended to allow diversion of natural streams without a thought for the effects on the ecosystem, wildlife or indigenous peoples. The key considerations were promoting settlement and economic development for frontiersmen, he noted.”The rules governing the use of water have always been in an evolving relationship with the values of the community,” Sax said. Recent cases have called on “public trust doctrine” to restore at least a semblance of the ecological balance before people came on the scene, said Jan Stevens, a retired California assistant attorney general who specialized in water law.

        Coloma-Agaran said the Waiahole decision “makes more sense out of past (water rights) decisions” and “made it clear that the public trust doctrine is alive and well in Hawaii.”

          Modern water allocation decisions inevitably involve difficult choices among competing consumptive and natural uses that are highly valued by diverse but equally passionate sectors of the community.2 Particularly in an island state like Hawai‘i,with its limited sources of fresh water, fragile environment, and unique economic challenges, debates over re-allocation of precious water resources and the merits of stream restoration are likely to become only more intense as human needs for …

          The Symposium’s two panels – comprised of Hawai‘i government managers and leaders, attorneys for private and public water users, and community members – offered a lively and thoughtful discussion of the decided and still-open questions surrounding the “Hawai‘i water resources trust” articulated in Wai_hole and explored the difficult questions of how the trust should be translated into on-the-ground decisions managing Hawai‘i’s water resources.

          • That heading Water Rights for the Twenty First Century….surely that’s got the UN’s Agenda 21 written all over it. I notice Sierra Club and many other key community rights words written thruout this stuff. You don’t suppose Jan Stevens ever worked for the UN himself in some capacity or ICLEI do you? They’re part of the litigations and problems involving their water situations in California, so it begs the question.

  6. Fox News’ Eric Bolling: Obama administration ‘answers to the Quran first and Constitution second’
    September 17, 2012

    The detention of Nakoula Bessaly Nakoula, the California filmmaker who produced an anti-Muhammad video that enraged anti-American mobs in
    the Middle East, aroused a national debate on the First Amendment.

    On Monday’s broadcast of “The Five” on the Fox News Channel, co-panelist Eric Bolling said that act represented something else: President Barack Obama’s administration holding the Quran in higher esteem than the U.S. Constitution.

    “I don’t want to cut you off — can we throw the picture up of the filmmaker again, where he is all in disguise and the cops are leading him out?” Bolling said. “To me, America changed. Someone emailed that picture — Mark Levin sent this to me to take a look at this. America changed at that moment. To use what is being called a flimsy ploy to bring a guy in for questioning proves that the Obama administration through all the appeasement and the apologizing answers to the Quran first and Constitution second. There is no reason for him to be brought in.”

  7. College suspends professor for allegedly attempting to force students to vote for Obama
    Sep 17, 2012

    A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections.

    Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”

    The pledge was printed off of GottaVote.org, a website funded by the Obama campaign.

    University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent. “Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC. “The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class,” continues the statement.

    Sweet’s actions may have also violated Florida’s election laws.

    Section 104.31, of Title IX in chapter 104, states that “no officer or employee of the state… shall… use his or her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or nomination of officer or influencing another person’s vote or affecting the result thereof.”

    • On background: http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/ShowRatings.jsp?tid=1034158

      Comments by some of her students:

      “From day one she had an agenda other than math studies, not being totally black ( looking ) I was in her sights constantly.”

      Train Wreck of an educator.”

      How this ‘professor’ keeps a teaching credential is beyond me. Worst in the college.”

      “Great teacher- always tells you exactly what you should think.”

      Some “teachers” just aren’t cut out to teach. I love math and this class was probably the worst experience of my education. She is unwilling to put forth any effort to help people. I didn’t suffer because I’m decent with the material. But, many of my friends suffered from her poor classroom expertise. Bottom line: take someone else.”

      The initial comments were mostly negative and then it looked as if her own particular “obots” came in to defend her. What’s interesting is that the ones that like her do so, apparently, because she gives them multiple chances to “pass”. She lets them correct their incorrect answers on tests.

      Does the school pay attention to these comments? She has tenure. How and why?

  9. OCTOBER SURPRISE 3.0:
    SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2012
    By Dan Crosby of The Daily Pen

    With the 2012 election looming, legal analysts formerly with the Social Security Administration predict Obama will “triple down” on the birth certificate fraud by displaying a forged paper version of the document. Under the weight of mounting ballot challenges and an onslaught of citizen journalists who have effectively exposed Obama’s prolific lies, Obama’s only option, they say, is for the criminals propagating the epic deception about Obama’s illegitimacy as president is to “frankenstein” one more doozy of a lie…bigger than all the one’s before it!

  12. H/T ORYR Lawsuit filed to get Obama off Vermont ballot over birth eligibility
    The losing candidate in last month’s Republican U.S. Senate primary cites his reading of constitution; state GOP dismisses claim
    6:45 PM, Sep 17, 2012 Snip

    Paige’s lawsuit indicates that it was prepared by Mario Apuzzo, a Jamesburg, N.J., lawyer who has filed a similar action in that state. Apuzzo, however, is not licensed to practice law in Vermont. Paige said he was unable to enlist a Vermont lawyer to represent his claims, so he plans to represent himself when the case is argued in court and have Apuzzo there as an advisor.
    ~
    A clerk at the court said Monday the case is not yet public because not all parties named in the lawsuit have been served papers. Paige said the state and Condos have been served, but he has been unable to have the papers served on Obama.

    “We had a private process server attempt to serve the papers on Obama at his residence, but we encountered some difficulty,” Paige said. “Our person was threatened with arrest and imprisonment.”

    Paige said he recently mailed a copy of the lawsuit to the White House by express mail but said the tracking document “mysteriously” was unable to indicate if Obama received the package.

  14. Trump: Obama is ‘Unlucky President’
    Monday, 17 Sep 2012 10:51 PM

    Billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump on Monday dubbed President Barack Obama “an unlucky president” and said that Republicans should be winning the election in a “landslide” rather than the close contest pollsters are predicting.

    “We have an unlucky president, he’s been unlucky for this country,” declared Trump appearing by telephone on the “Fox & Friends” broadcast. “Everything he touches turns to trouble. They talk about his foreign policy. His foreign policy is a disaster. The Middle East is exploding. With all the billions and trillions — not billions — trillions we’ve spent there — it’s exploding. Our economy stinks. He’s an unlucky president for this country.”

    Trump said that he has known business people over the years who have suffered a similar affliction.
    ~
    “You have to say one thing about Obama: He’s got an amazing team of people around him — amazing,” he observed. “Anything anybody says about Obama, they immediately attack them and put everybody on the defensive. We need somebody to go in there and really attack because otherwise they’re going to lose the election.

    http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/Trump-Obama-unlucky-president/2012/09/17/id/452073?s=al&promo_code=10180-1

    • I hope Trump is volunteering. He has the guts. I swear, sometimes I wish he HAD run. At least he says what he thinks openly, while Romney, for inexplicable reasons, says it only behind closed doors. But then at least he stands by it! http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/romney-stands-comments-video-says-were-not-elegantly-032830339–election.html

      I heard this morning that it was a grandson of Jimmie Carter’s who gave that video to Mother Jones. I was out of the loop yesterday, so I don’t know how it all went down. But if this fundraiser was in May, then guess WHY they saved it to release NOW? They even gave a heads up to people like Dana Loesch, so they worry about the blowback of this mysterious video damning Romney. In the end, this might end up HELPING Romney, but of course, it’s being put out there (1) to distract the media (willing media) from Barry’s complete failure in the Middle East and (2) to get Romney’s wealth and his INCOME TAXES back in the news. Added benefit, they’re LYING and saying that Romney was dissing old people on Social Security who don’t pay taxes (except many do, don’t they)? They also LIE about what he said. They, who are so quick to condemn Breitbart for editing videos and playing excerpts out of context, did EXACTLY THAT with the video. If that wasn’t bad enough, they MISQUOTE what he said. Of course, that’s deliberate, too. Likely emailed to them from the WH or via the JournOlist. They falsely say that ROMNEY CALLED THESE PEOPLE VICTIMS. No, he said they think of themselves as victims. These people who expect the government to care for them, cradle to grave. And that’s so true. He was, however, wrong about the percentage of people who pay no income taxes and have no skin in the game. It’s not 47%; it’s over 49%, as we’ve reported (via links) many times. He ALSO did not say that he doesn’t care about those people. He said and MEANT that it’s no use caring about trying to persuade them to vote for him because their minds are made up and this is based upon how much the GET FROM BIG GOVERNMENT.

      • Trump said, ““Everybody that doesn’t work is voting for Obama. And that’s a lot of people,” he explained. “I don’t know why. It should be the opposite. People that aren’t working should be voting for the Republicans. You look at what’s going on in the inner city where [Obama] is tremendously ahead in the inner city, and yet they have 50 and 60 percent unemployment. It should be the opposite. Somebody has to explain this. Somebody has to go out and explain this from the Republican Party.””

        Now that’s a rather naive statement, unless he’s telegraphing that Romney should say this (and double down on what he said in private):

        The reason they’re voting for Obama is because they don’t have to worry about being unemployed. So it doesn’t matter to them.

        And why don’t they have to worry? Because in the OBAMANATION they are taken care of. They get money back in taxes that they never paid in. They get money “back” in the form of tax credits for EACH kid–credits on taxes they don’t owe because the tax code says they don’t have to pay ANY fair share. They get free educations through high school and low-interest college loans that they probably won’t have to pay back (unless they just get free college in the form of grants). They get food stamps. They get welfare payments. They get free child care so that when they DON’T go to work, they can still do whatever and not have to worry about caring for their own kids. They get free preschool for those kids. They get free health care for everybody in their family. They get free dental care, complete with gold teeth. They get free eyeglasses. They get free memberships in expensive community centers that most others have to pay for. They get free cell phones and service. They get free computers and internet service. They get free housing, with dishwashers and central air conditioning. They get free electricity and heating. People totally dependent on the government wind up with a higher standard of living than a person who WORKS, brings home $40,000 and PAYS TAXES.

        This is not like the old America, where if you didn’t work, you had it hard. No. The Obamanation takes care of you WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY. REDISTRIBUTION.

        Those who do work must carry these free loaders on their backs. What’s not to like for MANY of the unemployed (not all of them, but many)? They get to NOT WORK but there’s no repercussion or blowback because they and their kids are taken care of. At free school, the kids get free breakfast, lunch, snacks, and now dinner, too. (Did you hear that during this teachers’ strike in Chicago, some schools are open ONLY to provide child care and watch the kids? No educating going on. Nope, just using “educators” like babysitters so the parents don’t have to watch their own kids or pay somebody to do it. All courtesy of the IL taxpayers!) And guess what? Even though the kids get all that food at school, Mom still gets food stamps! What a country!

      • Watch for them to use this as the excuse to publish those Romney tax returns. They are just looking for an excuse. They will keep harping on this. Drumming up the anger, so that when they come out, they can exploit his wealth and call him a hypocrite for not paying taxes (on income, because he had none to pay taxes on. Romney pays capital gains taxes and others on his investments. You know why he had no income? Because he worked for NOTHING at the Olympics and as governor!) They had this tape all along. They are letting out the rope a little at a time. It’s the narrative that counts and they will have the Oct. surprise. I have NO DOUBT that we will see Romney’s tax returns.

        Did you hear that Obama said he’d do anything Republicans want and that he’d work with them? He’d walk their dog or wash their car? Of course, that’s his backhanded way of subliminally telegraphing his belief that all Republicans are racists who want him to be their you know what. He’s an idiot, a liar, a CLOWN. One thing the Republicans WOULD work on with him is a BUDGET. We’ve yet to see one, though.

  16. Why is anyone afraid to say that Marxism is Obama’s ideology. Marxism, Socialism, Communism seem to be words that if used are not PC. It is time to emphasize that Obama is a Fabian Socialist or Marxist who believes in the government controlling you. If those words wouldn’t scare people into voting Republican than I don’t know what will. If they have any education at all, they surely learned about those words in high school. He should be associated with the leaders that are well known and who believe like he does. That is exactly why he can have the radicals around him and think nothing of it. Our government has been infiltrated and it should be told to the public. Who will be the first to announce it instead of pussy footing around it. Using the words “redistribution of wealth”are the key words, but perhaps that wasn’t drummed into people’s minds like Socialism, Communism, Marxism were.

    I am saying this because Trump was on Greta’s and he pussy footed…and said I know where Ob ama is coming from. She said where? He said well with the redistribution of wealth he is saying it. He refused to use the terms, yet Greta was leading him there. To heck with PC, we have a republic to save!

    Obama: “I actually believe in redistribution.” 1998

    • Obama in 1998 Speech: ‘I Actually Believe in Redistribution’
      Tuesday, 18 Sep 2012 05:20 PM

      An audio recording of President Barack Obama surfaced on social media Tuesday in which the president can be clearly heard telling a Loyola University audience in 1998 that he believes in the “redistribution” of wealth in America, something that his critics have long charged. “I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution — at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody’s got a shot,” Obama can be heard saying.

      The audio file, which was posted on YouTube, purports to be from an Oct. 19, 1998 conference at Loyola University, where Obama, then an Illinois state senator, termed the substance of his speech policy research “for the working poor broadly defined.”

      Obama’s GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, came under fire earlier this week after the release of a video tape showing him characterizing supporters of the president as people “dependent on the government” who “believe that they are victims.”

      In his remarks 14 years ago, Obama blamed a “propaganda campaign” in part for what he described as the notion challenging the effectiveness of government action. “I don’t think it’s too strong to call it a propaganda campaign against the possibility of government action and its efficacy, and I think some of it has been deserved,” Obama acknowledged. “The Chicago housing authority has not been a model of good policy-making and neither necessarily have been the Chicago public schools,” he added. “What that means then is that as we try to resuscitate this notion that we’re all in this thing together — leave nobody behind — we do have to be innovative in thinking what are the delivery systems that are actually effective and meet people where they live?”

      Obama also maintained that there were both technical and political issues that had to be addressed in restructuring government systems that pool resources.

      http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/obama-redistribution-loyola-speech/2012/09/18/id/456677

      • OMG. That is wonderful! Tit for tat. We raise you one fabulous video! Take that, progressives.

        “RESTRUCTURING GOVERNMENT SYSTEMS THAT POOL RESOURCES.”

        FOR REDISTRIBUTION OF YOUR WEALTH. Imagine that. TY Newsmax.

      • We are all in this thing together is the exact thing he has said in campaign speeches this time around.

        How do we structure government systems and what are the delivery systems that Obama believes are effective? Those systems are not capitalism. He wants to change our country from a free market based capitalistic system into socialism which then moves on to full communism where the government owns all property. In Socialism, the government can take whatever property you own and do with it as they please. Think General Motors and Obamacare. No one wanted the government to take over, but they did.

        I think it was Chavez who just did this a couple years ago. He went around Venezuela and saw properties he liked, and they became his. In return to assuage the bleeding property owners, he made sure they knew that the money he got from the properties was used to buy refrigerators for those that needed them. Boy, the formers owners were thrilled they were able to do that for the poor! Where did the rest of the money go? Can you guess?

        Obama’s words do have meaning, but one must know what he is talking about. He wants to take a certain percentage of your money, not just the taxes that are now removed, but more than that. Then he says he will give those extra bucks out to the poor only after those he chooses to be in his government take their share of that kind offer of cash you have given them. Perhaps they will give that extra buck to the poor. In that system that has failed in every country where it has been tried, the elite, as they like to be called, get all the benefits. Below that class will be everyone else. Now everyone will be part of the “have nots.” But we will all be equally sharing! Yes, poverty and despair for all! A trip to the country along the U.S. southern border will give you an idea of what fair looks like. Obama should know fair. Wasn’t he saying he was something like a street urchin living on food stamps, because he was so ‘po’. He can eat more than peas!
        .

        • You’re EXACTLY right about him wanting a system where the GOVERNMENT OWNS ALL RESOURCES. What else does he mean when he talks about creating GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES FOR POOLING RESOURCES FOR REDISTRIBUTION? Of course, FOX News radio this morning, talking AGAIN about the Romney tape, discussed the very old tape of Obama, but said only that his critics say he was supporting “redistribution” when Obama was actually talking about making more effective government. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

          They did NOT play the audio. I’m waiting to see whether, tonight, my local NBC affiliate shows the video on the nightly news. They showed the entire snippet from Romney’s video, lead story, with transcription so you would know what he said.

          If they DO NOT play the entire snippet of Barry talking about POOLING RESOURCES IN GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES, then we will know this entire thing (as if we don’t already) is a planned, DemoncRAT/JournOlist plot, as was the attempt to destroy GWB’s campaign in 2004 with the fake national guard records.

          Pam Geller this morning, on the Jamie Allman show, said that this is a planned distraction from the disaster in the Middle East and that it’s very possibly THE October surprise that they had to roll out sooner than they wanted to, because of the events in the ME. She says the media wants this story and will pump it until the election. Anything to avoid talking about Obama’s so-called foreign policy. It’s obvious to me already. This morning’s paper also had a story applauding James Carter IV for “finding” this video. It says he VOLUNTARILY regularly and routinely searches You Tube for videos about Romney and Republicans:

          “But on this day in August, one clip jumped out. There was Romney, in an undisclosed location, bluntly discussing a visit to a Chinese factory with substandard conditions.

          “The hidden camera video _ it was all burred out at the beginning, and it was mysterious,” Carter said. “It piqued my interest.”

          Something told him there might be more there than the brief clip posted on the YouTube channel “Anne Onymous.” Although not affiliated with any campaign or super PAC, Carter had made it a personal mission to help get Democrats elected in 2012 _ and to do his part to push back against Romney’s relentless campaign-trail mockery of his grandfather.

          So Carter, 35, of Atlanta, set out track down the source of the video. He sent a message to the YouTube user seeking details. No luck. But then, after sharing links to the video on Twitter, Carter realized he had a new follower with the same name as the YouTube account. He quickly shot off a direct message.

          “They were wary at first,” Carter said in an interview with The Associated Press. “But they did respond.”

          What followed was a delicate, concerted effort [concerted effort implies a group] to convince the source _ still unknown to the public _ that Carter could be trusted, and that the world had to see the rest of what was surreptitiously recorded as Romney spoke in May [the WORLD?] to donors who had paid $50,000 a person to attend the private fundraiser. … Carter persuaded the source to trust Corn with the full video _ on the condition that he keep the source’s identity a secret. Corn ran with it, using clues in the video to triangulate when and where it had been recorded.

          Then on Monday and Tuesday, Corn posted the clips to his magazine’s website, sparking a firestorm for the Romney campaign over remarks claiming that nearly half of Americans “believe they are victims” deserving government help and that the Palestinians have no interest in peace with Israel.

          James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa,” the former president told his grandson Tuesday morning in an email obtained by the AP.”

          And if you believe THAT NARRATIVE, then I have a nice island off NY to sell you.

          btw, Carter is said to be UNEMPLOYED, according to Jamie Allman. I suspect, however, that he IS employed. ANN, 2. OBOTS. Ironic, isn’t it?

          When James O’Keefe and Breitbart do it, it’s reprehensible. When the surreptitiously record and then run only “clips”, the media and the progressives go ape-shit (sorry, I had to use the expression I’m thinking.) O’Keefe and company do it to expose waste and fraud in our government. Our government employees breaking laws, for example, by politicking on the taxpayers’ dime and using our resources. But this is purely political and typical DemoncRAT dirty tricks.

          Allman suspects, after hearing Chris Matthews interview Carter, that the catering staff was involved. Either someone was an operative or someone was bribed to “mount” the camera and record the video. I don’t believe Carter’s scenario at all. I wonder what the WayBack Machine and Twitter would show? No doubt scrubbed, planted, or never there in the first place.

          This sounds so much like the retrospective spin and “explanatory narratives” we hear to wipe away and answer all questions and criticisms about Barry’s tall tales about his biography and birth certificate.

          Every base covered. He’s not a paid operative–he voluntarily spends his unemployed days, not looking for work (well, there aren’t any jobs in the Obamanation, but skids are always greased for guys like Carter IV), ROUTINELY scouring the Web to find negative things to use against Romney. He’s not associated with the campaign or any Super PAC. (No, of course not!) Gramps is right there to congratulate him! He found this by accident and only wrapped up getting the entire video, with the part about taxes, recently. And he JUST KNEW there was something more damning on a video where Romney decries a Chinese sweatshop. THIS is all put out there to explain away the obvious question: Why did you wait until now if the video was made in May? No You Tube complicity. It just happened that Anne Onymous became his follower on Twitter! You Tube didn’t put him in contact with her. Of course, this also feeds right into HARRY REID’S claim that Romney didn’t pay taxes. And the meme that Romney should release more tax returns, which the DemoncRATS probably ALREADY KNOW ABOUT BECAUSE THEY’VE LIKELY ALREADY HAD THEM “LEAKED” TO THEM. THAT fits Barry’s career-long modus operandi: Mysterious leaks of sealed records belonging to his political opponents, published by a complicit media that puts the exact spin on it, at just the right time, to ruin the opponent’s campaign and get Barry elected. This also fits with the LIE that some other “Ann Onymous” person hacked the Price-Waterhouse records. This lie, so that WHEN THE DEMONCRATS leak the Romney tax returns, they can claim that they had nothing to do with ILLEGALLY OBTAINING THEM. And this sets up the media to publish those returns because, they will claim, it’s a legitimate public interest because Romney has criticized those who believe they’re victims even though they pay no taxes.

          We are being played big time, People. But we have to keep our eye on the ball. I would have made a post about this Carter fool, BUT THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT US TO DO. I’m just giving you this for background. BARRY IS THE PROBLEM. BARRY SHOULD BE OUR FOCUS. NOW AND UNTIL NOVEMBER.

      • Actually it was Richard Ayers who wrote a long paper on the redistribution of wealth and how it is exeuted proportionately throughout communities. Found a paper on it long ago. you could probably find it. Richard Ayers served on all the same boards with Gillian (Jill) Tate…the lady whose beachfront condo Obama rented (actually one of two he has rented that she has owned) for his Hawaii vacations.

  17. Jerome Corsi:

    “Arpaio investigator: Hawaii still covering up for Obama”

    “In Honolulu, Zullo worked closely with local contacts, including Duncan Sunahara, the brother of Virginia Sunahara, an infant child born in Hawaii Aug. 4, 1961, the same day Obama was born, and died the next day.

    Duncan Sunahara has tried to obtain a copy of his sister’s original birth certificate but has been denied.

    “I was shocked by the lengths the Hawaii Department of Health has gone to deny the family of Virginia Sunahara a copy of the original long-form birth certificate that the family is lawfully entitled to request and obtain,” Zullo told WND. “I had to ask the question why this little girl’s 1961 long-form birth certificate was so disconcerting to the Hawaii Department of Health?”

    Zullo was quick to point out that in the court proceedings Nagamine admitted the entire volume of birth certificates containing not only Virginia Sunahara’s long-form certificate, but also those of the Nordyke twins and Barack Obama, has been moved to a special secure location with very limited access.

    “The point apparently is to hide away Obama’s original birth certificate, if it exists and then deny anyone access to see the document on the premise it’s too fragile to examine,” he said.”

  18. Is the Constitution 1- or 2-ply? O only wipes his ass with 2-ply.

  19. It’s INFURIATING to see the media LYING about what Romney said. Their latest meme, EVERYWHERE, is that Romney doesn’t want to be the president of all the people, but Obama does. That is a LIE and a DELIBERATE mischaracterization of what Romney said.

    He said that as a candidate, he’s never going to convince those people who are so dependent upon government to vote for him, so AS A CANDIDATE, he can’t worry about trying to persuade them to vote for him. He NEVER SAID that he doesn’t CARE about ALL the people.

    Obama was quick to get on Letterman, to declare that HE (what a freaking liar) cares about ALL Americans. He CARES MORE about Muslims in the MIDDLE EAST than he cares about us “bitter clingers”.

    The media is DEAD as anything OTHER THAN A STATE PROPAGANDA APPARATUS.

  20. Did you know Alvin Onaka worked for USAID before working for the state of Hawaii? Trying to find any direct SAD connection…if anyone has been down this road and can save me the time, I’m listening… 🙂

    • I looked into USAid a long time ago, and wanted them investigated. But if they are connected to the CIA, then I knew it wouldn’t be done. I long suspected it was a money laundering organization, and then found it connected to the CIA. USAID has tentacles like ACORN. . I will see if I have anything that connects. I thought SAD worked for USAID at one point. I do remember that Obama told people in Kenya to contact them for help. Recollection on it is cloudy.

      East-West Center, University of Hawaii, and CIA coup against Sukarno

      Ann Dunham met Soetoro at the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii. The center had long been affiliated with CIA activities in the Asia-Pacific region. In 1965, the year that Dunham met and married Soetoro, the center saw a new chancellor take over. He was Howard P. Jones who served a record seven years, from 1958 to 1965, as U.S. ambassador to Indonesia. Jones was present in Jakarta as Suharto and his CIA-backed military officers planned the 1965 overthrow of Sukarno, who was seen, along with the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI), as allies of China.

      In 1972, USAID administrator Dr. John Hannah admitted to Metromedia News that USAID was being used as a cover for CIA covert operations in Laos. Hannah only admitted to Laos as a USAID cover for the CIA. However, it was also reported that USAID was being used by the CIA in Indonesia, Philippines, South Vietnam, Thailand, and South Korea. USAID projects in Southeast Asia had to be approved by the Southeast Asian Development Advisory Group (SEADAG), an Asia Society group that was, in fact, answerable to the CIA.

      http://www.prisonplanet.com/bombshell-barack-obama-conclusively-outed-as-cia-creation.html

      CIA and other organizations that were connected.

      One of the CIA’s major money laundering fronts in Honolulu was the firm of Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham & Wong (BBRDW). After the CIA allowed the firm to collapse in 1983 amid charges that BBRDW was merely a Ponzi scheme, Senator Daniel Inouye of the US Senate Intelligence Committee said the CIA’s role in the firm “wasn’t significant.” It would later be revealed that Inouye, who was one of the late Alaska Senator Ted Stevens’s best friends in the Senate, was lying.

      • In 1966, Indonesia re-aligned its economy in order to receive International Monetary Fund (IMF) assistance. The report ….states it “retains a significant following in East and Central Java,” where Ann Dunham Soetoro would largely concentrate her later efforts on behalf of USAID, the World Bank, and the Ford Foundation, all front activities for the CIA to “win the hearts and minds” of the Javanese farmers and artisans.

        Dunham and Barry Soetoro in Jakarta and USAID front activities.

        Lots of information here.
        http://www.infowars.com/bombshell-barack-obama-conclusively-outed-as-cia-creation/

        My search just stopped working on my computer.. will have to wait awhile. I think all of my information only will show Ann’s connection to USAid. Not all of the players.

        • The photo that is supposed to be B. Sr. and Stanley Dunham with a caption that guesses this could be two navy officers at hickham airforce base…is still a troubling photo for me. First those are two seamen and not pilots. i don’t know why anyone would assume otherwise simply because of an inferred concept for this photo. And second , there is no proof that O. Senior ever arrived on an airlift. HIS ONLY passport stating his arrival in 1959 is in New york on a commercial airline. This photo looks to be at Night, by boat or ship and the background(if it is not a photoshopped photo) appears that there could be a building or something else with a few windows or lights in it…..hardly visible. While WMR from the post above has been around a good while and I think there is much to take away from it, there is still much wrong with taking credibility with lots of it.
          It is possible if any facts are really true facts about Obama Senior, that he was an opponent of Mboya , a student of Russia (since we don’t know where he was for a spell before he came to the US. True Socialists dispised Mboya and felt he was not a real socialist at all, but a puppet for Brittish, the US and his own self edification. IN everything I’ve followed about him he had all the trappings of Socialist/nationalist understandings, but believed in capitalism as the only way to help his country raise themselves up to a better standard. Yes, he wanted independence/freedom from colonial rule, but his idea of civil rights were even further fair or conservative than what we ended up doing. HE did not believe in equal rights for Africans only, but wanted equality for all .
          I have found several article on Mboya’s trial and why Obama is never mentioned in any account as a witness bothers me. The man convicted was likely a scapegoat and had already been practically forced to admit to mboya’s assassination.
          IN Frank M. Davis’s FBI files he is noted as watching with binoculars many times along the shoreline ..out to sea. It is not known what he is watching for….but maybe he’s watching for a signal or a ship to come in. IN Frank’s file it is also noted that he left his wife for a while and stayed at the Atherton YMCA, which is the same place Barrack Senior stays when he first comes to Hawaii. The longshoremen dockworkers could sure have a hand in being a welcoming committee at night for the photo of Barrack and his welcoming group….and why are the other black men in the front of the photo not welcomed with a lei? Are they not students too. If this is a greeting for Barack, then it is not an airlift, because no one else in this photo seems to be part of an airlift…..as there seems to be only one member that has just arrived. THat would be pretty expensive to airlift one person,now wouldn’t it; or for that matter, it appears to me pretty weird that there are only , at the most, three other people in that photo that many have just arrived . THis photo is not what everyone has made it out to be. At least consider what I am saying.If we are going to get past the lies and get to the truth then we’ve got to quit believing the retoric.

          • And if Ann Dunham met Obama in Russian class……how does this mean she knew much Russian at all. We never see any other indication she learned any Russian or had a need to . And further, if Obama was a new student in 1959, his first classes as stated in the Hawaii introduction for incoming foreign students was to take English unless they were already proficient in speaking the English language….so how is it he was already in a Russian class the beginning of a school year. Where did he already learn English…..THis does not jibe unless he already knew English and Russian maybe…..which I can’t know. That year it is also possible that the only Russian class was the reading of a Russian novel…..as an introductory class (not likely). Something about meeting in Russian class does not make good clear sense and we certainly can’t assume because she took one Russian class(if she did) that it benefitted her at all.
            John Kennedy visited Hawaii in 1961 and I think previous years too. So if Barrack was the product of the benefits of any airlift how come Kennedy didn’t go see him or acknowlege the first African American to Hawaii when he visited?It would have been an important event. Again the information on Barack obama Sr. is without merit. If Barack Senior had any important connections to Mboya , why are there no FBI or CIA or Brittish intelligence information of Barrack as there is for Cheif Koinange, Peter Koinange, Mboya, Kenyatta, Odinga and others.
            Also , just a side note…but Ralph j. Bunche was on the Board of International Education at Harvard the years Obama Senior was there. It was Ralph Bunche’s wife who wrote letters to President Kenedy and others requesting help for these African students….so why do we never find any references to this important student B. Obama Sr. since Ralph Bunche and his wife would have some close association to his education status? Huh??? Don’t you think Ralph Bunche, who had many close intimate ties the leaders and chiefs of Nairobi Kenya and Barrack Obama Senior’s home town,and home of Senior’s father Onyango, why is he not an important part of Ralph’s many letters/diary/papers/notes. Not even one acknowledgement,, yet he was part of the international(that means foreign student affairs at Harvard. Really Strange, if you ask me.Course no one ask me.

          • He could as easily be LEAVING Hawaii. They put the leis then, too. I read somewhere that the woman in the photo, the one name Mardi, the blondish one who slumps over, didn’t arrive in Hawaii until the 60s. Something like 62, iirc. So it could very well be those friends seeing him off.

          • OK, I’ll try that one, but it’s still not plausible for me…MR. Dunham is too young, no one else is leaving with a lei. THis is either a composite photo with various people shopped in for effect or a welcome party for a traveling Comrad . And besides if Stanley Dunham is greeting Barack Sr. then Stanley knew B. before Ann did and the story will have to morph again. There is one person in this photo I have scouted all over trying to find because I feel certain I have seen him in another photo….He’s in the very back with a tam on, looks to be negro. I have either found him on a geniology site in old photos or he’s in a photo from the real airlifts to the states,but he is posing the very same way. Or he’s in a photo with the other two people in the front of this photo in another photo I have found with the head of the African Student Association talking to all the students. They are all seated. Or look for him in one of the photos where all the students arrive in the states. I know I have seen him and possibly the other two in another photo. I think the guy in back is definately photoshopped into the picture. Maybe others are too.

            • I think it’s a composite photo, to tell you the truth. Especially all those leis. Hiding something. I’m not convinced that’s Stanley Armour. There’s a guy in the other photos, with “Anne/USA” who resembles him. Where exactly did this photo come from, if anybody knows? Is it in one of the biographies? Supplied by Maya? What?

          • thanks for commenting on it Miri. I still don’t have any answers but the picture doesn’t add up with what info there is anyway, and I guess that was my point. But since I am on the topic and I mentioned above about FMDavis’ FBI file. Has anyone ever read the whole file on FMDavis….the one that’s floating on the internet anyway? It’s very likely, someone created this file on him from his files,but with parts omitted. What I have seen is quite long ,but it’s doubtfull it’s his whole file, and there could be parts added as well to make it curious BECAUSE…if you’ve read it to the end , the final page has a copy of a large communist symbol of the sicle and hammer with the Worker on it. It seems as though someone’s taunting us. Have you seen it?

            • Please post a link Alfy so we can see what you are talking about.

            • I haven’t read it, alfy. It’s a lot to read. I heard Paul Kengor on the radio a while ago. He talked about how in Chicago, in the ’40s, FMD was close friends with Valerie Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, with her grandfather, Robert Jordan, all of whom were COMMUNISTS, as was BHO Sr. and Stanley Armour Dunham. In addition, Axelrod was mentored by some people named Cantor, who were rabid Commies. Stalinists. This is the “milieu” in which Barry was raised. Not that we didn’t know ALL this, but it’s wonderful to hear it on the radio.

            Thisis a site which shows what I probably read. I am glad you asked me to go back and find it. I have it but not in this format,but can’t post it. It’s the same stuff though. Now , after searching for what I had to post I see other files that aren’t on this one….and there are hundreds in a long list of file #’s which are scratched thru and says destroy or destroyed.They are listed on other sites about his files. Hmmm….
            Guess we’ll never have a complete file on him anymore. I figured all have read these files….there is mention of him scanning the coastline with binoculars and living at the YMCA . I think it’s near the later stuff.
            Miri, I agree some of Stanley armour dunham’s photos appear to be different. I wish someone could copy them all to one doc. side by side comparisons….from his early military photos, his photo with B. Sr.,his on the beach photo with little B. on his shoulders in the water, his photos with Ann as a child and later ones too. I did this with some of Ruth N.’s photos (the Baker photo) her recent kenya photos, and her Texas Wedding photos that I screen captured from the wed. video. I put them all in a drawing program and put them side by side. It’s very telling when you do that. But I still haven’t figured how to post them without my Identity on them.

            • Yeah, would be nice. Maybe in my “spare time”. I have little and I still haven’t had time to figure out how to work the software I downloaded per Gordo’s suggestion.

              • I wasn’t being snarky. I just meant I’ll put it on my long list. Somewhere there’s a photo of Stan right around the time SAD was 5 months old. I wonder how that would compare to his face in that airport/dock photo, or wherever they are?

          • I’m trying to find where you ask me something….But here is Bertrand Falls who is listed with Sheila ,Marina, Mary Falls AKA Sheila Ndesandjo in lawrenceville Georgia (they have somoe other addresses too but this one most prevalent). Seems Bertrand has been withouth a license for some time cause I find him in various years….heres one for 2007 and then 2011 for examples.

            When I get a chance I’ll try to show yu how Timothy Falls , a name listed as their relative…..got me to Timothy Falls in Hawaii. When looking further into the Hawaii democratic delegate that he is , I also looked at his home in Honolulu…..as I googled looking down the street…almost across the street is a Cecelia Dunham in a very, very nice home. Just weird

          • I am sorry but the Dunham person I found…her name was not Cecelia, but was Cheryl ann dunham on the same street as Timothy b. Falls. She lives at 7419 Makaa street in Honolulu and Timothy lives at 7408 Makaa Street, but the strangest thing is now I can’t find the site I had showing Timothy B. Falls there ..when I checked back now the person living at 7408 is David A. Falls. It’s a pretty long process to find that Marina/ Mary/Sheila Ndesandjo is actually Marina Sheila Falls with Bert Falls, but it would take many hours of stuff to show you they are extremely correct in being the same people. I’ve spent countless hours cross referencing weird names only to come back around to find that say Sheila Ndesandjo is also a partner with Pierre Johnson. It gets so complex, but I have most of it printed out. The name Sheilds and Robinson works into this as well, which is Michelles mother’s last names.There are some Barry Falls that may be potential suspicious relations too. Like I say it’s complicated.
            The Cheryl Dunham in Honolulu also is listed in Frisco Texas , age 58. Almost every name I’ve had luck with connecting, goes to Hawaii, Texas, and Georgia and NC, and Florida mostly with some in New York and Ma.Here’s one showing Bert and Mary Falls. They almost always have an N as a middle initial. You have to do more digging to see all the relationships. Richard Ndesandjo has an address in Houston Texas too.

    American agency for international development has until 1 October to shut its office in Moscow
    18 September 2012 Snips

    Russia has ordered a key US agency to shut down operations as Vladimir Putin continues to crackdown on a protest movement that he maintains was orchestrated by the US state department.

    The move appeared to be the latest salvo in the Kremlin’s efforts to squeeze a protest movement largely borne of civil society efforts to highlight growing government abuses. In addition to funding health and environment projects, USAid mainly focuses on supporting groups that promote democracy and human rights in Russia.

    USAid’s 13 diplomats will likely have to leave the country. The fate of the 60 locals that work for the office remains unclear.

  24. 2 U.S. Supreme Court Justices – And Numerous Other Top Government Officials – Warn of Dictatorship
    September 18, 2012 Snip

    Justices Souter and O’Connor, Intelligence Agency Heads and Congressmen All Warn of Tyranny in America

    Former Supreme Court Justice David Souter told University of New Hampshire School of Law that the “pervasive civic ignorance” in the U.S.could bring dictatorship:“I don’t worry about our losing a republican government in the United States because I’m afraid of a foreign invasion. I don’t worry about it because of a coup by the military, as has happened some other places. What I worry about is that when problems are not addressed people will not know who is responsible, and when the problems get bad enough — as they might do for example with another serious terrorist attack, as they might do with another financial meltdown — some one person will come forward and say: ‘Give me total power and I will solve this problem.’ That is how the Roman republic fell. Augustus became emperor not because he arrested the Roman senate. He became emperor because he promised that he would solve problems that were not being solved.

    Former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O’Connor has also warned of dictatorship.

  25. http://news.yahoo.com/justice-dept-faulted-gun-trafficking-operation-181210695.html

    Investigation into ourselves shows that we have done nothing wrong. What else did anyone expect?

    “The Justice Department’s internal watchdog on Wednesday faulted the agency for misguided strategies, errors in judgment and management failures during a bungled gun-trafficking probe in Arizona that disregarded public safety and resulted in hundreds of weapons turning up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico.

    Two senior officials left the department, one by resignation and one by retirement, upon the report’s release.

    In the 471-page report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz referred more than a dozen people for possible department disciplinary action for their roles in Operation Fast and Furious and a separate, earlier probe known as Wide Receiver, undertaken during the George W. Bush administration.

    The report did not criticize Attorney General Eric Holder, but said lower-level officials should have briefed him about the investigation much earlier.

    The report found no evidence that Holder was informed about the Fast and Furious operation before Jan. 31, 2011, or that the attorney general was told about the much-disputed gun-walking tactic employed by the department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.”

    How hard did they look for “evidence”? Issa? Any comments?

  26. More capitulation: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/chick-fil-funding-anti-gay-groups-175154249.html

    Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain that sparked a firestorm earlier this year after its president made public comments against same-sex marriage, has agreed to stop funding antigay groups, a Chicago alderman says.

    Joe Moreno, the alderman whose opposition of a proposed Chick-fil-A on Chicago’s north side helped fuel the controversy, told the Chicago Tribune the company has pledged to include a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in a memo to staffers, and has promised that the WinShape Foundations, its not-for-profit arm, would no longer contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage. Moreno said he will recommend that Chick-fil-A’s construction plans be approved.”

  28. Back to the Secret Service prostitution scandal. They now believe it implicates WH STAFF in procuring some of the prossies. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/19/probe-may-cite-white-house-advance-team-involvement-in-prostitution-scandal/

    “While much of the attention in the case has focused on the actions of Secret Service personnel, multiple law enforcement and congressional sources tell FoxNews.com that investigators also discovered two White House advance team members checked in prostitutes as overnight guests at a Cartagena hotel in the days before President Obama’s April 13 visit.

    “Three U.S. delegation members that stayed at the Hilton brought prostitutes back as overnight guests. One of them was ours (Secret Service) and the other two were White House staffers,” a high-ranking Secret Service official told FoxNews.com. “We knew very early that White House staffers were involved.” … But whether there will be any reference to the White House staffers in the upcoming report, from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General, remains to be seen. The report has yet to be delivered, though DHS OIG officials said Tuesday it would be submitted in the coming days. Acting DHS Inspector General Charles K. Edwards initially told a congressional panel in May he was aiming to present it by July 2.

    The delay has sparked speculation the report was being altered or manipulated to conceal or minimize the roles of some of those involved, multiple Secret Service officials with senior leadership positions told FoxNews.com. Meanwhile, Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, of the Senate Homeland Security Committee sent Edwards a letter on Sept. 14 asking for information about the status of the report.

    A congressional source told FoxNews.com the Senate committee staff is particularly eager to see the report because it “includes information that two members of the White House advance team had prostitutes overnight.””

    If you read the entire story, you will see that this will likely turn out to be yet another example of the Obama administration investigating itself and then, SURPRISE! They discover that there’s “no credible evidence” (destroyed?) that they’ve done anything wrong.

  30. Has anyone here seen the DVD, Dreams From My Real Father yet? I’ve been thinking of ordering it just to get more of that viewpoint. If FMD wasn’t Black Barry’s real father, he sure did influence him.

  32. Has anyone seen the Dreams from my real father DVD?

    thanks

    • Not I. No one has commented here about it yet Kitty. Are you planning to see it or buy it? I’ve read a couple reviews, but that is it.

      • Yeah, I was thinking of buying it just to see what’s going on with it. Even if FMD wasn’t his dad, he surely did influence him.

        Thanks for your response.

      • Kitty, you might wait to see it Gilbert sends you a free copy. That is, if you live in a battleground state. He’s sending them to Ohio, for example. A million free ones. Maybe somebody will get a copy to share. But really, after all his hard work, if you can afford it, it would be nice to support his efforts.

  33. I haven’t read it all to see if it is a snow job or if real information is presented. Where did Tapscott find that Obama didn’t have a deprived childhood? Might they be finding the information at WTPOTUS?

    Shocking Obama ‘Vetting’: Washington Examiner report previewed by Bret Baier
    September 20, 2012

    See the front page…it says “The Man Behind the Image” I have a screenshot.

    Wednesday, an investigation of the official narrative of President Obama’s life, which unearthed contradictions and what many consider outright lies, was previewed on FOX by Bret Baier, in a “Special Report”, titled, “Vetting.” Mark Tapscott, Washington Examiner Executive Editor of the final report, was Baier’s guest. Many conservatives think the “vetting” is overdue. Online there is much rejoicing, because, “The Obama you don’t know,” is available.

    Against a backdrop of Michelle Obama saying, “We didn’t have much in way of money or possessions,” Tapscott pointed out that perhaps the president’s upbringing may have been difficult because of “the circumstances” of his parents. However, continued Tapscott, “from a financial standpoint, a social standpoint … it was not an underprivileged childhood.”
