News of the Day and Open Thread

reading the news

Some news of the day, for your reading enjoyment:

First some disappointing but not unexpected news.  Boehner purges fiscal conservatives from key committees: [emphasis added to quotes]

Effective next Congress, leadership pulled Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash and Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert off committees from which they could exert conservative pressure on fiscal matters. Amash and Huelskamp were pulled from the Budget Committee and Schweikert from the Financial Services Committee.

Huelskamp, a freshman elected during the 2010 tea party wave, thinks the leadership move to pull him from the powerful committee is revenge for him standing up for conservatism. “It is little wonder why Congress has a 16 percent approval rating: Americans send principled representatives to change Washington and get punished in return,” Huelskamp said in a Monday night statement. “The GOP leadership might think they have silenced conservatives, but removing me and others from key committees only confirms our conservative convictions. This is clearly a vindictive move, and a sure sign that the GOP Establishment cannot handle disagreement.”

I heard someone this morning on the Jamie Allman radio show say that Tea Party II will dwarf Tea Party I.  We shall see.  When will they ever learn?

The columnist quoted by Bob Costas on Sunday Night Football has done it again.  This time, he compares the NRA to the KKK; but he doesn’t know his history.  Typical leftist! Some interesting history for you:

This will give you an idea of how gun control laws worked. Following the firebombing of his house in 1956, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was, among other things, a Christian minister, applied for a gun permit, but the Alabama authorities found him unsuitable. A decade later, he won a Nobel Peace Prize.

How’s that “may issue” gun permit policy working for you?

The NRA opposed these discretionary gun permit laws and proceeded to grant NRA charters to blacks who sought to defend themselves from Klan violence — including the great civil rights hero Robert F. Williams.

A World War II Marine veteran, Williams returned home to Monroe, N.C., to find the Klan riding high — beating, lynching and murdering blacks at will. No one would join the NAACP for fear of Klan reprisals. Williams became president of the local chapter and increased membership from six to more than 200.

But it was not until he got a charter from the NRA in 1957 and founded the Black Armed Guard that the Klan got their comeuppance in Monroe.

I’ll take this opportunity to remind everyone of these facts:   Abraham Lincoln was a REPUBLICAN.  The REPUBLICAN party is responsible for passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The original House version got 80% GOP support, the Senate version got 82% and the final vote in the House was 82% of Republicans in support. On the other hand, Congressional Democrats never saw higher than 69% of its membership in support of civil rights for blacks.

And who one of the leading voices in favor of passage? It was Illinois Senator Edward Dirksen, a Republican. Who was a leading voice opposing civil rights? Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat from West Virginia …

If it were up to Democrats in 1964 the Civil Rights Act would never have passed.

Inconvenient truths as well as convenient deaths.  There’s a new book out about the Vince Foster “suicide”.  Gateway Pundit has an interesting take on it:

Before Hillary Clinton and the Obama-Clinton regime blamed the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans on a YouTube video, the Clinton White House blamed the death of Vince Foster on the Wall Street Journal.

On July 20, 1993, Vince Foster, President Bill Clinton’s childhood friend and Hillary Clinton’s closest White House confidante, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head in Fort Marcy Park, McLean, Virginia. His shocking and untimely passing was the highest ranking government official’s death since President John Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

Foster’s mysterious death sparked a firestorm of controversy that engulfed the nation. Was it murder or suicide? The charges leveled against Hillary and Bill Clinton were serious: Foster knew too much.

Salon magazine actually  blamed Jerry Falwell for the WSJ editorials–the same editorials that Clinton blamed for Foster’s death!  There’s a long history of conveniently dead people in the past few  Democrat regimes.

Is THIS a good idea?

The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks is setting up a program to train foreign students to fly unmanned aircraft.

UND’s Unmanned Aircraft program director, Al Palmer, said the university is buying three flight simulators, which can teach pilots to fly aircraft such as the Predator, for an Air Force research project. The university plans to use the equipment to attract international students. …

[A]ny training program that includes international students must be approved by the State Department, a process that takes several months. …

United Arab Emirates was the first to purchase the export version of the Predator, and I suspect there will be other countries that will take a look at using those devices as well,” [Program Director Al Palmer] said. “They’ll be looking for organizations for training and, of course, we would like to provide that training.”

Palmer planned to attend an unmanned aircraft conference in Abu Dahbi later this month to gauge interest in the training program.

Have you read about this incident?  An IED set off by an “Iraqi refugee” at a Social Security Office in Arizona!  The following was published two hours ago.  The incident happened four days ago.

A man charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration office in Arizona had researched how to construct a particular explosive that authorities say has been used in terrorist bomb plots, according to a criminal complaint.

Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, 47, was charged in federal court with maliciously damaging federal property by means of explosives and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He appeared in a Phoenix courtroom Monday but didn’t enter a plea. He is set to appear again on Wednesday. …

Authorities said no employees were in the building at the time, no one was injured, and the damage wasn’t extensive.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives initially opened an investigation but soon gave the case to the FBI.

Chances are, you didn’t hear about that story.  I didn’t until media watchers began to notice the story being buried, along with certain facts.  From a story published yesterday:

The major mainstream media outlets continue to ignore whatever doesn’t contribute to the agenda actively promoted by our so-called leaders. Thus far, only local media in Arizona have reported the name of the man arrested. … 

While the little town of Casa Grande and the nearby Phoenix area are talking about the incident, virtually no one else is. In fact, the only reason I was following the story is because I’m presently in the area and saw the initial reports on the explosion and continued to look into it .

Within 90 minutes of the explosion, police had a suspect in custody. But you wouldn’t know it from reading the establishment media reports this past weekend. One reason might be that the suspect is 47-year-old Abdullatif Aldosary of Coolidge, AZ, an Iraqi refugee.

Undetermined as yet whether Aldosary is Muslim.  Wanna make a guess?

So there’s some news that caught my eye today.  What’s happening in your neck of the woods?

  1. New open thread.

    • Ooops, you missed my comment about Aldosary. It got buried because of the comment on the exposing Obama article. But I didn’t hear about it on the MSM – unless I missed it. But if they reported it, they didn’t report he was an Iraqi immigrant refugee? – allowed into this country, and was in prison here for another charge and not deported. Reporting on it would be admitting the administration failed in vetting him or hushing it up like they did about Hassan the Islamic MUSLIM Terrorist in U.S. army clothing that murdered our soldiers at Ft. Hood. Which brings me to the recent news about his trial. His judge was removed.

      Military Appeals Court Removes Judge From Ft. Hood Terror Trial Because He Ordered Nidal Hasan To Shave His Beard
      Dec. 4 Snip
      Unbelievable [is right! The bearded one got his wish.]

      FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The military judge who ordered the Fort Hood shooting suspect’s beard to be forcibly shaved has been thrown off the case, but the ruling ends lengthy delays in the trial of the Army officer charged with the 2009 rampage that killed 13 people.

      The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled Monday that Col. Gregory Gross did not appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan. Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.

      The court said it was not ruling on whether the judge’s order violated Hasan’s religious rights. Hasan has argued that his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, although facial hair violates Army regulations. [So Muslim faith now trumps his being a US soldier who is still receiving a salary!]

      • Wow! I did miss that one. Sorry. You have a lot more information about him that the story I found. I heard this on the radio this morning. Thanks. I’m behind on reading all the posts and reading my Breitbart updates, too! I usually post from the dashboard (readers won’t know what I’m talking about here) OR I’m in a hurry to put something in comments while I’m multitasking. My bad!

        This all just infuriates me. These are the REAL “domestic terrorists” while the likes of Naps (Big Sis Napolitano) go around looking for Tea Partiers or non-existent “white supremacists”.

  2. Running scared? Morsi flees his “palace”. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/12/04/us-egypt-politics-idUSBRE8B30GP20121204

    “Egyptian police battled thousands of protesters outside President Mohamed Mursi’s palace in Cairo on Tuesday, prompting the Islamist leader to leave the building, presidency sources said.

    Officers fired teargas at up to 10,000 demonstrators angered by Mursi’s drive to hold a referendum on a new constitution on December 15. Some broke through police lines around his palace and protested next to the perimeter wall.

    The crowds had gathered nearby in what organizers had dubbed “last warning” protests against Mursi, who infuriated opponents with a November 22 decree that expanded his powers. “The people want the downfall of the regime,” the demonstrators chanted.

    “The president left the palace,” a presidential source, who declined to be named, told Reuters.”

    Like Elvis, the president has left the building.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Good! At least the Egyptians have cojones…something we Americans clearly lack!

    • They now want the downfall of the new Muslim Brotherhood regime that they voted for and put into power and established as their new government with the help of Obama’s support in ridding them of Murbarak? Only 10,000 protesters? A couple weeks ago it was 200,000. Guess Morsi’s claim to become a dictator isn’t working out as well as he thought it would. Even if it hasn’t been reported yet, I bet our taxpayer monies $1.3 – 1.5 Billion – not million – Billion in “military” aid went into some Muslim Brotherhood bank account for brokering a deal with Hamas and Israel. Right Hillary?

      The country that burned the US flag and replaced it with the Muslim Brotherhood’s flag deserves our hard EARNED cash? Another example of funding Islamic terrorists by this administration, an MB Egyptian regime that supports Iran over Israel and is one of the worst human rights violators, and that attacked our Egyptian Embassy on 9/11/2012 will benefit from money that our citizens earn.

      I wonder if those protesting belong to the Muslim Brotherhood or are they the opposition?

      The news says now there were 100,000 protestors that fought with police! It jumped 90,000 from one report to another!

      Egyptian President Morsi leaves presidential palace as protests turn violent

      • When I read that, I thought the same thing. Only 10,000? Are they lying (like they do about the Tea Parties) OR has Morsi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood’s campaign of intimidation worked? I heard on radio yesterday that they’re sending out squads of thugs to frighten protestors. There were hundreds of thousands protesting just days ago. Over the weekend, iirc. 100,000 makes a lot more sense, in light of the fact that he fled and that the people seem royally P.O-ed. (I couldn’t figure out how to abbreviate that!) I wonder if Barry is taking note?

    Payment for services rendered? Christie wants 100% federal reimbursement for cost of Hurricane Sandy.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      I used to like him. My error. He’s a pig.

      • He had to play nice knowing he needed money to rebuild. He probably took his cues from watching how Jindal in Louisiana got shafted continually for speaking out against Obama during the BP spill. I think I read recently he added or wants to add a few more Muslim judges to the courts in New Jersey (many Muslims in his state apparently). I remember quoting an article about this awhile back that he was a Republican but acting as a Democrat by befriending Muslims. I don’t remember if he was in the running for governor at the time or was governor.

        I liked what he said too, but was really offended in how he cow-towed to BHO just before the election and that is what made headlines. The photo op helped Obama over the finish line.

      • I thought I liked him, too. I remember someone warning us that he has a particular sympathy for Muslims.

    • Now that he has a cozy relationship with BHO, he might get it. How much money do we have left or does it have to be borrowed from China to pay for a measly $40 BILLION in federal aid? Will it be applied to the federal deficit?

      • Heard the results of a poll on Rush Limbaugh. He says a majority believe that the hurricane was caused by global warming. What a crock. These polls mean squat because it all depends upon what they ask and how they ask it and what the media hypes. They probably believe shark attacks are caused by “climate change”, too. I heard there’s a poll that says that MOST don’t want taxes raised on anyone and do want spending cut. So there!

  4. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2012/12/03/us-ambassador-were-trying-to-stop-un-from-regulating-internet/

    That UN conference on censoring the Internet begins:
    “While almost all of the U.N. meeting is secret, many documents have leaked, including one proposal from the Russian delegation declaring “the sovereign right … to regulate the national Internet segment.”

    It echoes a call from Russian President Vladimir Putin last year calling for “global control over such [Internet] exchange. This is certainly a priority on the international agenda.”

    [US ambassador] Kramer said the Russian proposal worried him.

    “Candidly, we were very concerned with the Russian proposal. I think it was the most stark in nature of all the proposals that have been put out, because it basically is proposing Internet governance managed either by the ITU or the national government. There are traffic routing proposals in there that would open the door to potential censorship, which obviously we don’t agree with,” Kramer said. …

    Ambassador Kramer confirmed that the ITU does not currently regulate the Internet – but said that other countries are proposing that it do so.

    “The ITU, I think, is concerned about [the Russian proposal], because for all their good work in saying ‘we are not going to be talking about Internet governance,’ the Russian proposal that came in directly suggests it.”

    Kramer discussed the U.S. delegation’s strategy in opposing any Internet regulation.

    The U.S. does not have veto power over resolutions adopted at this U.N. conference, but it does have the right not to implement regulations that are adopted. [But will that STOP BARRY? He unilaterally puts out “regulations” and this will give him an excuse.]

    We always have the sovereign right to implement as we need to, but we live in a global environment, so we want to make sure we’re influencing effectively so that we have a good global outcome here,” Kramer said.

    Kramer said it was too early to tell how the conference as a whole would vote.

    Internet law experts say that even if the U.N. were to vote to regulate the Internet, it may have trouble doing so due to the decentralized nature of the web.

    “The funny thing about the Internet is that the U.N. can say ‘we are now running the Internet’ and they can promulgate rules — but they have to be implemented across the web. Software would have to be changed … Internet service providers would have to change,” Temple Law Prof. David Post told FoxNews.com.”

    They change now, under orders from Barry, don’t they?

    • We already have a censorship of sorts that is used by the MSM to not report facts or information. It also happens with Google, who scrubs anything that might reveal who the real guy is that sits at the WH. The White House decides who is privy to their release of information and FOX is not included. The communists and dictators want to suppress information for a reason – control. We watch Barry and the Left trying to rid us of conservative news via FOX or Rush or Glenn Beck, or trying to enact the Fair Use Internet Doctrine. This would help give them license to do so as though we are to be ruled by the tyrant filled and ideologically unbalanced UN.

      • Are they still holding the Coptic dude that made the “dispicable” video? Guess they were going to use him as the UN’s poster child for action to control the internet. But, hey he may still be in jail. So exactly when did the UN have legal authority to pass anything that binds us? No one at the UN is voted in by us> and legally has no standing. I guess everyone’s imagination has finally solidified the false narrative that the UN is a legal lawmaking body.

        • The Coptic guy went to jail for a year for “unrelated” charges…violating his parole, for one. I suspect he was a political prisoner first.

          I think Panetta was the first to say that the UN trumps Congress when making a decision and getting approval for a war. He said that all he or the administration needs is the UN approval. He was spreading that idea. IIRC, Senator Sessions expressed his total outrage at the idea. I think Panetta said that is what they did to start the war in Libya too. I don’t remember if this was before or after someone started impeachment proceedings against Obama for going into Libya without Congressional Approval – read that Obama was to get Congress’s approval not the U.N’s. He ignored the constitution and Congress regarding war powers. I guess that impeachment didn’t go anywhere. That short, outspoken Democrat – Dennis Kucinich (sp?)- also was ready to impeach Obama.

          *****
          In April 2011, A GOP Lawyer drafted this for Republicans to use: (Snip)

        • Constitutional firestorm over Libya war and Biden’s past impeachment words greet returning Obama
          March 24, 2011

          John Boehner raised that issue Wednesday in a formal letter to the president. He said in part:

          I respect your authority as Commander-in-Chief and support our troops as they carry out their mission.

          But I and many other members of the House of Representatives are troubled that U.S. military resources were committed to war without clearly defining for the American people, the Congress and our troops what the mission in Libya is and what America’s role is in achieving that mission.

          In fact, the limited, sometimes contradictory, case made to the….

          …American people by members of your administration has left some fundamental questions about our engagement unanswered. At the same time, by contrast, it appears your administration has consulted extensively on these same matters with foreign entities such as the United Nations and the Arab League.

          But it’s something else when President Obama’s own vice president, Joe “I Don’t Use Words Lightly” Biden suggests that a president who commits U.S. troops with no imminent threat to the country or its citizens and no congressional approval should be impeached.

          http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2011/03/biden-impeach-the-president-who-goes-to-war-without-authorization.html

        • I believe he was sent to prison for a year for “parole violation” for using a computer when he wasn’t supposed to.

  5. Americans face a fiscal cliff, Obamas make do with 54 Christmas trees!
    Monday, December 3, 2012

    Amazing how a reelection can reshape an incumbent’s thinking about many things. Now safely ensconced in the White House for 49 more months, the Obamas have decorated the place with 54 Christmas trees this year. Even allowing for the usual Washington excesses with taxpayer money, that’s a whole grove of Christmas trees. “We have 54 trees in the White House,” an excited Michelle Obama proudly told visitors the other day. “54! That’s a lot of trees.”

    In fact, the Obamas’ 54 trees this year are almost 50% more Christmas trees than last year. That was during the campaign before Obama whispered a reminder to the Russians that he had to be careful until Nov. 6, when a victory would give him more “flexibility.
    ~
    In addition to 54 Christmas trees, Michelle Obama has overseen the placement of thousands of ornaments in public rooms. Many of the ornaments celebrate the Obama family dog, Bo, who seems to have become the First Family’s favorite symbol of Christmas. Other decorations, including on the more prominent trees, were made by children in schools on U.S. military bases. [ Favorite symbol is BO? How Christian of them. Bo certainly represents Christmas in WHAT NEIGHBORHOOD OR COUNTRY? What no mention of Mao?]

    There’s several hundred yards of garlands and wreaths all over the hallways and rooms. And, of course, a traditional gingerbread house that has working chandeliers and weighs about 300 pounds. [Of course.]

    Last year, according to Mrs. Obama, some 90,000 visitors viewed her White House decorations. The irony is this year the main residents of the White House won’t be there for most of the holiday period and for both major holidays. [Irony? This is irony? The king and queen will be in Hawaii on vacation, but don’t you worry BHO will be thinking about jobs for Americans 24/7 – that is seconds per day.]

    http://news.investors.com/politics-andrew-malcolm/120312-635425-fiscal-cliff-talks-stall-as-obama-white-house-erects-its-own-tree-grove.htm?ven=rss

    • Take this Americans! They rub it in the faces of millions with his Economy! Infuriatingly extravagant, imprudent, and Wasteful with taxpayer money. Weren’t 22 trees enough last year? Where are the Mao, Marx, Lenin, and Stalin bulbs hidden? Michelle’s chosen theme is ‘Joy to All.’ May all of those without jobs be thrilled that even if you can’t afford a tree that your chosen communist prez has 54 of them – feel the joy, see the indulgence.

    • Wait, wait, wait! Those are “holiday trees”.

    • What? No creche?

      • The other day, I was treated, on multiple “news” channels, to the adorable video of Bo the dog taking us on a video tour of the Christmas decor in the WH. Did you happen to see that? Orders went out to the JournOlist, no doubt. All the anchorpersons predictably ooh’d and aah’d. I don’t seem to recall them doing the same when Barney took us around the Bush WH via the Barney-cam. They never have an original idea, do they?

    • Check out that dress Mooch is wearing in the photo at that link. My Barbie doll wore one just like it, only it was red. How fashion forward the Mooch is!

    • I was listening with only half my brain to Rush Limbaugh, but it seems to me that he believes that Barry does want us over the cliff. He wants taxes to go up on all Americans so that he can rush in and play the hero when he “leads” to reform of tax rates and again lowers rates for the middle class (of course, all the Obamacare taxes are coming, too). He probably hates that the current rates that will rise BACK to the Clinton level are called the “BUSH tax cuts”. I love how they call extending the current rates for everyone a “tax cut for the wealthy”. Therefore, wouldn’t it be a tax cut for everyone, including the middle class? I can’t figure out how the Republicans can outfox Barry. They allowed themselves to get backed into this corner. What they should do is pass the bill they want to pass and send it to Barry’s Senate and his desk. Put the ball back in the demoncRAT court.

    • Psssst. Under one of those 54 trees is an IOU for each of you from your prez for those 100,000 jobs for math and science teachers. He promised, remember?

      Unfortunately, this jolly Communist Santa can’t give you those jobs because he doesn’t do the hiring! That is why there is just a note. “IOU, and thanks for voting for me. Merry Bo Holiday to you. Signed Santa Obama.” He added a lump of coal to top it off. He is such a jolly, jolly man as he hops on Air Force One to spend 17 lavish days in tropical Hawaii on plenty of your dimes, nickels, quarters, and mostly million dollars.

      Now take your lumps as the economy goes into a downward spiral and the unions take more of your money, and another few million go on the government dole. Ruff, Ruff.

      Oh, another present! Under the special Bo Dog trees you will be treated to a “Rye Ruv Roo” from Bo’s pals. In case you can’t make it to D.C., here is a preview.

  7. I have never heard of any of these three conservatives mentioned in Miri’s Post above – why weren’t they making more noise? Now they are removed from the BUDGET Committee? They were most likely the ones putting their feet to the floor to stop the draining of our resources! Are they all freshman without voices for the public? Yet they were holding up compromises? Stopping negotiations by sticking to their fiscal guns? That is what conservatives are supposed to do – Stop the Overspending and try to bring sense to those that can’t control themselves with other people’s money. Were they TEA Party members? Huelskamp, Amash, Schweikert are conservatives but haven’t used their media muscles?

    “Effective next Congress, leadership pulled Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash and Arizona Republican Rep. David Schweikert off committees from which they could exert conservative pressure on fiscal matters.”

      Huelskamp booted from House Budget, and Agriculture committees
      December 4, 2012 at 2:38 p.m. Snip

      The move is underscoring a divide in the Republican Party between tea party-supported conservatives and the House GOP leadership.

      “This is a clear attempt on the part of Republican leadership to punish those in Washington who vote the way they promised their constituents they would — on principle — instead of mindlessly rubber-stamping trillion dollar deficits and the bankrupting of America,” said Matt Kibbe, president of the tea party group FreedomWorks. “This is establishment thinking, circling the wagons around yes-men and punishing anyone that dares to take a stand for good public policy.”

      Groups aligned with the tea party movement were generally big supporters of Huelskamp, Amash and Schweikert.

      A spokesman for Schweikert said he was told specifically that he had too frequently voted “against the team.”

  9. From Comments, page 4
    turfmann – I think that a “war” against inequality is just a means to an end. He could give a rat’s patoot about the poor or the rich, for that matter.

    It is America itself that he is trying to destroy.

    The destruction of the American Republic was the end game for all of his radical mentors and friends, from Frank Marshall Davis to his wife.

    As Patton said in absentia to Rommel “You magnificent b@stard! I read your g0ddamn book!” we need to be cognizant of what is written in Rules for Radicals, as well as The Weight of the Poor, and other manifestos of the progressive left.

    For they do not wish to engage in the time honored give and take of traditional American politics, a filibuster followed by a scotch and soda with your rival.

    A careful reading and comprehension of Obama, et al, can only lead to one conclusion.

    He wants us dead. (NB: Bill Ayers, Weather Underground)

    Hoist the Gadsden Flag my brothers and sisters! Our day to confront this evil is coming! Remember that the reason that sales of a certain commodity (you know what I am talking about) have been through the roof is that the Second Amendment has a predicate clause, a well regulated militia. We also know that the express purpose of the Second Amendment is the last resort of a citizenry against a tyrannical government.

    Barack Hussein Obama is that tyrant. He is the Anti-Madison, the man who came to take our Constitution away from us.

    I submit to you that before the 2016 election this Republic will fail. It will fail as a direct result of the intentional malfeasance of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and a host of other traitors to our Constitution. You may think the Pelosi is bat-guano crazy, and you would be correct, but you will also note well that many of her predictions have come true.

    Do not underestimate this man or his minions. They are pure, unadulterated evil. They know exactly what they are doing, and rely upon the masses to bleat like sheep as they lead them inextricably to their doom.

    • The author says this so well.

      “But here’s what really sticks in my craw. President Obama is a guy who runs around the world offering resets and flexibility to the Putins, understanding to the Muslim Brotherhoods, and embraces to the Chávezes. But when it comes to Republicans, who are his fellow citizens, it’s no-holds-barred, bare-knuckle politics: you bring a knife to the fight, and the president brings a gun. When it comes to authoritarian foreign leaders, the president leads with an olive branch. But when it comes to the loyal opposition, the president leads with his fist.

      OK, Mr. President. So be it; that’s your game. But we Republicans, we typical Americans, are playing a different game. It is called Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and for that noble purpose and that purpose only will we sacrifice our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

      • Except maybe they AREN’T his “fellow citizens” and his true fellow citizens are some of those foreigners whom he prefers.

      Wise advice, deerknocker. I think local participation is indeed our only avenue of political change and I’m attending just such a meeting in a week and a half. However, I think the point of some of these commenters is that a sudden (or relatively sudden) economic collapse could and would necessitate federal attempts to “never let a crisis go to waste” and employ draconian measures under the guise of keeping the peace, protecting the populace etc., etc., etc.

      Speaking for me, I’d MUCH prefer attending and influencing a local school board meeting, or local Republican meeting, or local Tea Party meeting, than trading 5.65 NATO rounds with some donut eating Barney Fife who couldn’t spell Constitution if you spotted him all the vowels and a couple of cononants.

  10. Keeping up with Omar! Who would have guessed? A technical error, yet.

    Obama uncle in Mass. gets new deportation hearing
    Dec. 4th

    https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2011/10/05/omar-onyangos-felonies-examined-in-unclegate/comment-page-1/#comment-99779

    • What was wrong with the old hearing? So is this an order to “review” the order of deportation so that they can come up with an excuse to allow him to stay? Will he pay his tax bill WITH INTEREST? Will he pay all the penalties, too, AND pay the penalty that others do (jail time?) for alleged identity fraud (potentially two SS#’s) and TAX EVASION? Surely there are other REAL citizens of the USA who have done time for not paying their taxes. I’m sure, though, that Uncle Omar won’t get any special treatment. You know that Auntie Zeituni didn’t get special treatment. Or did she?

    • http://cnsnews.com/news/article/dhs-confirms-deportation-obamas-uncle-hold-immigration-board-re-opens-case

      “Crystal Williams, executive director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said any move to reconsider a case is unusual when there is already an order for removal.

      It isn’t common for the Board to reopen a case when there is an outstanding order of removal, as there is here, particularly with a later DUI arrest. It happens, but not that often,” Williams said in a statement to CNSNews.com. [They don’t even mention the liens for outstanding unpaid taxes!]

      CNSNews.com reported in July that an ICE internal e-mail obtained by the legal watchdog Judicial Watch had confirmed that ICE had granted Obama a stay of deportation “to seek reopening of his deportation proceedings.”

      The e-mail, sent by Hale to ICE Director John Morton on April 1, revealed that ICE had no immediate plans to deport Obama, in spite of a previous ICE order that granted Obama a stay of deportation until June 5, 2012.

      “Mr. Onyango is subject to a final order of deportation. ICE had granted him a stay of deportation effective until June 5, 2012,” the e-mail reads.

      “The stay was granted to allow him to attend pending criminal proceedings and to seek reopening of his deportation proceedings, which concluded before the Board of Immigration Appeals on January 29, 1992.””

      So, the way I read this, contrary to what Barry claims, Omar IS getting special treatment. First, it’s nearly impossible to get a new hearing, especially if you’re a criminal; and second, he was supposed to already be GONE last JUNE!

  11. [CONFIRMED REPORT]
    Iran aims biological warheads at Israel
    Source confirms missiles in underground silos target Tel Aviv
    Published: 3 hours ago Snip

    Iran has 170 ballistic missiles aimed at Tel Aviv, many with biological warheads, WND has learned. According to a source who served in Iran’s Intelligence Ministry and who recently defected, the Islamic regime has armed hundreds of its ballistic missiles with biological warheads, and 170 of them are targeting Tel Aviv from underground missile silos. The Islamic regime ruling Iran has prepared for the total destruction of Israel, he said.

    As reported in the Washington Times in August, a commentary in Mashregh, the media outlet of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, confirmed that the Islamic regime not only has weapons of mass destruction but has armed its terrorist proxies with them, including Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad. The commentary warned Israel that if the fighting in Syria does not stop, an all-out attack on the Jewish state will be launched and that at zero hour, Tel Aviv will be the first city to be destroyed.

    A senior Iranian cleric, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, warned then that Tel Aviv “will burn to ashes,” and the regime’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, promised “the superfluous and fake Zionist regime will disappear from the landscape of geography.”

    The source, talking to WND, confirmed that Iran has made significant advances on several fronts – chemical, biological, nuclear and electronic warfare – and that the regime is looking at the deterioration in Syria and the possibility of an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities with the intent of setting Israel and the region on fire.
    ~
    The source also verified the existence of the Valayat 1 [a secret] nuclear bomb project and the underground facility at that site.

    • This is NOT GOOD. It is damn frightening. Now what Obama? What will your highness do about this? Vote present – sit in the Situation Room and watch Israel go up in flames and disappear? Pretend that it was caused by another amateur film? An adviser to Khamenei said in a speech last week, ” the coming of the last Islamic Messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam, is soon and a certainty.” We were warned years ago, and nothing was done but Obama sent secret notes to Iran and they laughed, and now this. Is it a real threat or an imaginary one? What does Bibi think?

      Remember that bomb drawing that Bibi showed to the UN where he drew a red line? Where is the US on the red line? We know Obama fiddles or snorts when things are on fire. He is either asleep or hugging one of his 54 Bo trees.

      • Air Force Brat!

        God will not let Israel be destroyed, even if the whole world gathers against her.

        I certainly wouldn’t want to be Zero on Judgment Day!

        • Rosemary Woodhouse

          I believe he thinks of himself as the “messiah”….you know…. the bad one. He DID come from nowhere and rules with an iron fist. Bet he has feet of clay too, metaphorically speaking.

      • Given the over-the-top rhetoric of those Iranians, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not. Sort of like with Barry. Does Bibi want to gamble? I wouldn’t.

        What can Barry do now? They’ve made such a mess of all of this (Of course, that depends upon your perspective. Barry might think the new caliphate is just wonderful and applaud Morsi, the new Pharoah. They have so much in common, after all.)

        I keep thinking of Katrina and GWB who said, “Heck of a job, Brownie.” Well, “Heck of a job, Susie.” “Heck of a job, Hill.”

        Heck of a job by both with regard to Egypt, Benghazi, and now this disaster of the UN recognizing the non-existent state of Palestine. Does this mean that “Palestine”, Hamas, and Hezbollah will now obey the rules of war? Somehow, I think not, although they plan to try to accuse Israel of “war crimes” in international courts.

        Heck of a job, Susie! Heck of a job, Hill! Heck of a job, Barry! Today, the newspaper had a photo of the hundred thousand protestors in Cairo. I immediately noticed something atypical. All of the WOMEN in the crowds. Here’s an example: http://www.philly.com/philly/wires/ap/news/world/mideast/20121204_ap_protestategyptpresidentspalaceturnsviolence.html

        Ordinarily, when there are protests or any public gathering in the Middle East, women are non-existent. As if there ARE no women in these countries, because mostly they’re locked up in the homes, with NO FREEDOM. You can tell that this fight in Egypt is for their freedom. And where is Barry? And where are Hill and Susie? NOWHERE.

        They’re FOR Sharia law in Egypt. What else can you conclude from their silence?

        These women are fighting for their freedom. Under an Islamic sharia-law Egypt, they will have NO freedom and, in fact, less than they had under Mubarak. But where are the Flukes of this world? Where is the NOW? Where are Naps, San Fran Nan, and the rest of the so-called wonderful delegation of DemoncRAT women in Congress? Crickets. NOBODY GIVES A RAT’S ASS ABOUT THE WOMEN OF THE MIDDLE EAST. Why is that?

        • You know, FIRST LADY Laura Bush spoke out for freedom for the women of Afghanistan. Where’s MOOCH on this? Planning her 3-week “vacation” in Hawaii, that’s where. Where’s Valerie Jarret, btw? Does she care about freedom and HUMAN RIGHTS for the women of Egypt?

          The Muslim Brotherhood has taken note and now are intimidating women, sexually assaulting them, too: http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/12/05/15675200-men-dont-have-to-worry-about-being-caught-sex-mobs-target-egypts-women?lite

          “On Nov 25, Al-Ahram state newspaper reported three women were sexually assaulted during anti-Morsi demonstrations by hundreds of men.”

          It was already reported that they’re trying any means necessary to frighten and intimidate their opposition.

          • Found a story that speaks to this, too: http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/12/the_worldwide_war_on_women.html

            “Now, however, equipped with newfound fame and with the re-election of Barack Obama signifying a battle won, maybe Ms. Fluke can now branch out and become an international spokesperson on how women around the world can stand strong in the face of male-imposed tyranny.

            Who better than Sandra to represent injustices such as a 15-year-old girl being beheaded by a male cousin over a rejected marriage proposal?

            Here in America, while girls of Mexican-American descent picked out dresses for a festive quinceañera, in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province, 15-year-old Gisa was out gathering water by the river when she was ambushed by close male cousin Sadeq, who proceeded to saw off her head with a knife.

            Gisa’s father refused to allow his daughter to marry because of her tender age. So, instead of a wedding dress and a wedding, the girl’s headless body was returned to her family, wrapped in a sheet and dressed for a funeral.

            With that in mind, Sandra Fluke did do a bang-up job on Capitol Hill advancing awareness of the war on women by schooling the Catholic hierarchy on polycystic ovary syndrome. So why not fly Sandra out to Khanabad to give a similar speech to Afghani men about the discriminatory display of hostility exhibited when one separates the head of a young girl from her body?

            After she celebrates the rampant practice of female feticide, Sandra can then turn her attention toward injustices like beheading, stoning, genital mutilation, rape, and splashing acid in the faces of Afghani girls. Then the war-on-women/endometriosis expert can pack her copy of TIME magazine and a fresh supply of free contraceptives and fly off to Michoacán, Mexico.

            After all, it was in Michoacán that former mayor of Tiqicheo Maria Santos Gorrostieta’s half-nude, mutilated body was recently found dumped in a rural field.

            Maria stood up to drug cartels over marijuana and heroin in the same way Ms. Fluke stood up to the patriarchal Catholic Church over the right to NuvaRings and FemCaps. One difference, though — Sandra Fluke became a liberal hero, while Maria was kidnapped, tortured, and then executed.”

            This is a great article. Do read the whole thing.

  12. Law enforcement seeks greater access to text messages
    Dec 04, 2012

    http://www.myfoxboston.com/story/20262257/law-enforcement-seeks-greater-access-to-cell-phone-records

    This is finally being reported on the nightly news:
    “Several organizations that represent police and prosecutors all over the United States are lobbying Congress to change federal privacy laws.

    Part of the changes would be a requirement that cell phone providers would have to keep text messages for two years in case the information is needed in a criminal investigation.

    According to a report in Wired magazine, AT&T and T-Mobile discard messages immediately. Verizon keeps them for five days and Sprint keeps them for 12.

    Robert Sciliano, a Boston-based online security expert for McAfee said privacy is one issue and cost is another.”

    I hope this wakes people up. We’ve talked about this for quite a while now. For TWO YEARS they want to FORCE companies to save your private text messages, just in case they might want to read them without a warrant! TWO YEARS.

    Imagine if a Republican president or Congress tried to FORCE telephone companies to RECORD AND STORE every one of your phone conversations, just in case they might want to listen to them sometime!

    Where is it written that they can FORCE companies to spend all this money to store all this data just in case they want to spy on you? This certainly seems unconstitutional on many levels. It’s seemes like a violation of our fundamental rights. To privacy. From unreasonable search and seizure. From self-incrimination, even.

    Just because there’s a middle man, does that mean we have no expectation of privacy and no control over our “speech” in the form of text messages? Even if you delete them from your phone, you have no option to delete them from the servers where these companies, unbeknownst to us, are possibly saving them? Why do any of these companies store them even for days?

    To whom does our speech belong? It’s written, so why isn’t there copyright on it?

    If the company doesn’t ordinarily store this data, then where does the government get off forcing them TO collect and store it? This could be extended ad infinitum.

    What about elevators? Can they force building managers to record and store conversations that take place in elevators, in case the government might want to listen in?

    How about those cameras in elevators? Can they force them to store video for two years?

    How about taxicabs? Can they force cab companies to record conversations and store them for two years?

    Just because it’s possible, doesn’t make it right. I suppose this is one part of the law that Leahy is trying to pass.

    • Here’s an article about that UN conference to censor and control the Internet:

      Global Governance Begins on December 14

      December 3, 2012
      http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/12/lobal_governance_begins_on_december_14.html

      I love this: “The best part of [ITU’s secretary-general, Hamadoun I.] Touré‘s lying clinic, however, is saved for last: “Nobody today would dare to go against the freedom of the internet.” If a sixth grade naïf said such a thing, a responsible adult would smile kindly, and then gently explain that there are, sadly, many people in the world who do not believe men should be free. If the chief regulator of the UN’s telecommunications agency says it, you should feel like the humans in the movie Mars Attacks as the aliens recite their memorized English sentence — “Don’t run, we are your friends” — while zapping everyone in sight.

      The UN agenda is dominated by national governments that certainly would, and do, dare to “go against the freedom of the internet.” (Ask a Chinese exchange student if she has a Facebook account, and see what response you get. Actually, don’t ask — those kids don’t need any added fear in their lives.) Of course Touré knows this. His explicit denial of the obvious proves him a (bad) liar. “Freedom of the internet,” as defined by the UN, has precisely the same validity and purpose as the word “Democratic” in the name Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”

      • And here’s the key: “So what is this all about? It is often said that the first task in a modern military occupation is to take control of the means of mass communication, thereby to control the dissemination of information. The internet, by virtue of its having spread throughout the world so quickly, and of its being largely immune to national boundaries, creates a special problem for authoritarian governments which are, in effect, occupying forces in their own nations.”

        We are the Occupied USA. Occupied by the forces of Communist Obama:

        “This quiet UN takeover of the internet is the important first step in a new kind of occupation. The globalists, with the help of the re-elected Obama administration, are going to move forward quickly with their plans for what Al Gore and Herman van Rompuy call “global governance.” A key part of this process is the reduction of the world’s last defense against authoritarianism — the United States of America — to the status of just another mild-mannered vote at the UN. Enter Barack Obama, with his hyper-conciliation to the Muslim Brotherhood, his promise to Vladimir Putin to finish dismantling America’s defenses after his re-election, and his remaking of a prosperous constitutional republic as an economically doomed leftist regulatory state.”

    My Petraeus interview firestorm silly, off-base

    By K.T. McFarland December 04, 2012

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/12/04/my-petraeus-interview-firestorm-silly-off-base/

    The JournOlist finds another way to condemn FOX News: Accusing Ailes of conspiring to make Petraeus president. The thing is, I still believe that their FEAR of him running caused them to turn up that affair, via opposition research. Because they RECORDED this interview and put it out there now, I think even more that there’s some truth to my theory.

    “I realize conspiracy theorists have used this off-the-record interview to claim it was some plot to put Petraeus in the Oval Office. But it was little more than one defense analyst (me) trading some political gossip and laughs with one of the country’s most important military leaders (Petraeus).

    Perhaps those same conspiracy theorists should ask themselves some different questions: Why was an audiotape created of what was supposed to be an off-the-record interview with just four people in the room, which General Petraeus himself said several times was off the record? I certainly saw no recording device, nor did I give my permission for the interview to be taped. So who taped the interview? Why did they keep it hidden away for the past 18 months? Why was it released at this time to a Washington Post reporter? That is surely more interesting than two people, neither of them politicians, joking around about the presidential campaign. Indeed, this is why they call it the silly season.”

    • This isn’t the first time Eric Schmidt has been asked to be in his cabinet. He is on a couple committees already. He likes the money right where he is and the power he has at Google.

  14. Court hears challenge to Obama recess appointments
    December 5, 2012 A P Snips

    WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court heard arguments Wednesday in a case that considers whether President Barack Obama violated the Constitution earlier this year when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies in his administration.

    Attorneys for Republicans and business groups told a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit that Obama abused his power in January when he appointed three members to the National Labor Relations Board.
    ~
    The case is an important test of presidential power and could determine whether the Senate can indefinitely block presidential appointments by refusing to adjourn. Even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky came to watch the hearing in a packed courtroom. McConnell and 46 other Senate Republicans filed a friend-of-the-court brief arguing the appointments are invalid.
    ~
    Obama also invoked his recess appointment power in January – over strong GOP objections – to install Richard Cordray as director of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

  18. Fire Boehner: We Only Need 16 Votes to Depose Boehner
    December 5th, 2012 at 03:00 PM Snip

    If conservatives want to keep the House and win the Senate, we need to fire John Boehner as speaker of the House. We only need 16 House votes to do it. As most conservatives know, Boehner and the House GOP Steering Committee decided to purge four conservative House members from their committee. …
    ~
    If Speaker Boehner wants to purge independent, bold conservatives—I think it’s time he gets fired as Speaker. Not only for the purge. He has failed to effectively win negotiations with President Obama and appointed moderate committee chairs. To the public, Boehner may appear radical but in reality he proposes milquetoast policies, like the tax-hikes he proposed this week.While the caucus has already voted in support of John Boehner as speaker of the 113th Congress, the final floor vote doesn’t happen until early January. Everyone thinks it’s a fairytale, but the Conservative Movement is capable of firing Boehner with just 16 votes. The House rules demand that a Speaker receive a majority—218 votes—to be elected speaker. If no nominee for speaker receives 218, the House remains speakerless—as it did during parts of the Civil War. If 16 House Republicans were to abstain from voting for Speaker, Boehner would only receive 217 votes.
    ~
    Republicans and conservatives deserve a more articulate, more conservative leader. In fact, we need one if we want to keep the House majority and take the Senate. Boehner has been Obama’s punching bag and has lost every public battle with the President. Now, he’s waging an internal war on conservatives.

    http://www.redstate.com/nedryun/2012/12/05/fire-boehner-we-only-need-16-votes-to-depose-boehner/

    • Things are getting nasty for the GOP in Congress. The GOP leadership fired conservatives from key committees, and now people want Boehner fired as Speaker. People in Congress who work with him know what he is doing, and how well. We only see snippets of him. But has he held the line on anything against the Democrats, or are they just killing him with their tricks? The TEA Party people aren’t happy that men were removed from key positions on different important committees, and I haven’t often seen this occur. We will see if their is a shift in attitudes of other GOP members soon. The ins and outs of who is on what committees is a normal process after an election, I think.

      • I suspect the last little meeting Boener had with Dear Little-Man Leader, the Speaker was “urged” to replace those committee members.

        • I think that the GOP has a short memory as to who won them the 2010 election. From the news I’ve read and all of the blaming for the 2012 election loss, they needed some group to be their scapegoat, so they are going to go after the TEA Party. Guess we will have to show them in 2014 that the power is still in our hands and it is best not to dismiss the grassroots.

          I always thought it peculiar when I saw people on TV purporting to be TEA Party leaders from the grassroots and wondered, who elected them to speak for the millions? We know the ones in Congress who spoke for the people. Now the leadership finds them thorns in their sides? Guess we will have to elect some more to prove we mean business. They are stupid to dismiss the TEA Party IMHO.

          • What the GOP fails to see is the Tea Party mindset IS the Republican Party. The GOP Elites are the minority in thought, morals, ideology, and action. Just as minority Socialists, Oboma Regime insists they are THE country and the majority, so does the GOPE (GOP Elite insist they are THE party. We ARE the party.

  19. Democrats To Strip Gun Rights From Military Vets
    December 5, 2012

    Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) hopes to stop a major defense spending bill in its tracks now that Democrats have added an amendment that allows them to take away the guns of certain military veterans.

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/democrats-to-strip-gun-rights-from-military-vets/
    From Video -FOX and Info Wars Headlines

    Veteran’s Rights a Sticky Issue in Defense Bill

    Should veteran’s deemed mentally incompetent to handle their own financialaffairs be prevented from buying a gun?

    Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) sought to amend the $630 Billion Defense Billto stop the Veterans Affairs Department from putting the names of veterans deemed too mentally incompetent to handle their finances into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which prohibits them from buying or owning firearms.

    Sen. Charles Schumer, (D-NY) objected, saying the measure would make it easier for veterans with mental illness to own a gun, endangering themselves and others. “I love our veterans, I vote for them all the time. They defend us,” Schumer said. “If you are a veteran or not and you have been judged to be mentally infirm, you should not have a gun.”

    This bill will likely pass according to the announcer. Coburn won’t hold up the defense bill, but will write legislation about it later.

    • Warning to all Vets – Buy your guns now because the demoncRats are coming after your right to bear arms. They can say you are mentally incompetent and put your name into a data base that won’t allow you to own one or buy one.

      This is what they always try to do, remove the guns from the populace. Who are they most afraid of? Vets who aren’t afraid to fight and defend freedom.

      Can you see them adding all Military men and women to the list in the future? Harmless as it sounds on the surface, it will be like getting on the terrorist watch list for the airlines, and finding it impossible to get off if you have the same name as a suspect. Tyranny starts when they take away our guns. Those darn right wing extremists are military vets and active soldiers compliments of Naps. I object that their names go into a CRIMINAL database. They aren’t criminals!

      Has anyone heard how many vets with guns cause major problems in the U.S.? Are their numbers to back up what the Democrats want to do? How many people are deemed incompetent by the government now? How many expected in the future? Whose bill is this and why is it needed if only two or three men are affected? How do they get their names removed? Who will determine if they can’t handle their financial affairs because they can’t do math or their wife does the finances? What is the criteria they are using to make a determination? Isn’t there already a law on the books about anyone that suffers from limited capacity getting a gun? Why are vets being singled out?

      • With the number of vets being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, this is a real danger to their constitutional rights. This could, in effect, disarm most of those who returned from the Mid-East because they have concussive head injuries, stress disorders, and other conditions they might call “mental illness.”

      • The vets do not even have to be individually diagnosed as mentally unstable. Just takes a ‘study’ showing all come back with trauma that is a danger to society and to themselves. Next, after the vets, will be the unemployed, the business owner who had to close business/went under, the person going through a divorce, etc., Any life-challenge can be deemed medically harmful and thus, can not have gun. Then it will be those displaying ‘out of control’ behavior as in protesting or shouting things like, “You lie” at a public official. Yep, means one is unplugged to display such behavior. As we become aware of the changing times, we then become very quiet; almost silent. Who wouldn’t for fear of being offered a nice closet full of straight jackets and fashion ‘patches’ of meds?

    December 5, 2012 – By Territory Media

    Breaking news! Supreme Court of CA to rule whether Obama should be declared illegitimate for the U.S. Presidency due to his use of forged IDs and a fraudulently obtained CT Social Security number. Loss of 55 CA electoral votes will certainly mean new elections in the U.S.

    After originally refusing to hear the case under the original jurisdiction, Supreme Court of California was persuaded by Attorney and candidate for the U.S. Senate Dr. Orly Taitz to take on a case Noonan, Judd, MacLaren, Taitz v Bowen under the provisions of the California Constitution, which allow Supreme Court of California to hear special cases under the Original Jurisdiction. Docket excerpt is below. Case number is S 207078 Noonan v Bowen. Attorney Orly Taitz.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/nsa-agent-everyone-under-virtual-surveillance/

    “Did you ever get the feeling you were being watched?

    And watched by the government?

    There’s very good reason to feel that way, says a whistleblower from the National Security Agency who says everyone in the U.S. is under virtual surveillance by federal authorities.

    In an interview with RT, William Binney, a former mathematician and code breaker at the NSA, says the FBI records the emails of nearly all Americans, including members of Congress, and warns that the government can use this information against anyone.

    “The FBI has access to the data collected, which is basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country. And the FBI has access to it,” Binney said.

    All the congressional members are on the surveillance, too, no one is excluded. They are all included. So, yes, this can happen to anyone. If they become a target for whatever reason – they are targeted by the government, the government can go in, or the FBI, or other agencies of the government, they can go into their database, pull all that data collected on them over the years, and we analyze it all. So, we have to actively analyze everything they’ve done for the last 10 years at least.””

    That might explain A LOT.

    http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_22133907/seniors-decry-ban-christmas-tree-their-complex-newhall

    “Residents in a Newhall senior apartment complex are protesting an order from management to remove their beloved Christmas tree from the community room because, they were told, it’s a religious symbol.

    On Tuesday, Tarzana-based JB Partners Group Inc. sent a memo to staff at The Willows senior apartment building demanding they take down Christmas trees and menorahs in communal areas.

    The company has owned The Willows for four years, but this is the first time it’s given such a directive to staff.

    On Wednesday, two dozen residents in the 75-resident complex gathered in the lobby to place a neon green sign that read: “Please Save Our Tree.””

    HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO THE COMMUNIST LEFT, FOX NEWS IMAGINES THIS WAR ON CHRISTMAS.

    • Happy St. Nicholas Day!
      http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/12/happy-st-nicholas-day/

      “Today is the Feast Day of St. Nicholas. A day millions of Christian children around the world will wake up to shoes filled with small gifts and candy. In some regions, the day includes elaborate festivities of symbolic rituals to honor and celebrate the goodness and generosity of a great man born centuries ago.”

      He was a CHRISTian. This is a RELIGIOUS holiday and we CELEBRATE it.

    • The seniors are residents of the complex, not just their apartment. They have stake ownership, month-by-month, in the community room each time they pay the rent. They property is theirs, by rental contract and as majority stakeholders/shareholders/co-owners of the community room they can put up their tree. The ‘landlord’ may hire someone to run the community room but that person is really an employee of the residents who have bought and paid for ownership of it. At least, that is the spin I would throw at the landlord.

    • The Seniors Won and Got their Tree! Management said it was “miscommunication” after the newspaper got over 600,000 hits on the article, it hit Facebook, and the internet, and no doubt the management company was blasted with phone calls from across the country. Worried that someone would take their new tree in the middle of the night, the seniors hired a security guard! Miscommunication is like the government’s normal cover of intentional wording being called misspeak! I hope they celebrate with a spiked egg nog and sing lots of carols! Loudly!
      NEWHALL – The Christmas tree is back.
      Dec. 6

      A day after residents in a Newhall senior apartment complex protested what they said was an order by management to remove a Christmas tree from their community room because it was a religious symbol, the property operators said the tree could stay. In fact, they chalked it all up to a miscommunication.

      As of Thursday afternoon, a tree was standing in the community room, lit, ready to be decorated – and monitored by a security guard to ensure it stays up.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/271411-jim-demint-resigns-from-senate

    “Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) has resigned from the Senate to take over the conservative Heritage Foundation.

    DeMint’s decision to leave the Senate after only eight years shocked Washington. DeMint had been seen as a future Senate leader for his party and was already a leader to a growing number of conservatives in the House and Senate.

    “It’s been an honor to serve the people of South Carolina in the United States Senate for the past eight years, but now it’s time for me to pass the torch to someone else and take on a new role in the fight for America’s future,” DeMint said in a statement explaining his resignation.”

    Governor Haley will pick a replacement until a special election. WTF is going on?

    • Sad to see one of the most conservative voices leave. He was instrumental in getting people elected to both houses who represent the fiscal minded in this country. Perhaps he can do more outside government than he could inside. After 8 years of butting heads with Harry, I can see why he’d want to go. The Heritage Foundation is a wonderful organization and a place where he will feel comfortable. It is a loss for N. Carolina, for sure.

  26. “Obama Quietly Handing Over Billions of Dollars to the UN in the Name of Global Warming”
    http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.Blogs&ContentRecord_id=704a64c3-c4b6-0747-65d9-b2d6e8ebe36f

    While all of the attention today in Washington is on the looming fiscal cliff, President Obama’s administration is quietly handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations in the name of global warming.

    Hello, I am Senator Jim Inhofe, Republican Senator from Oklahoma, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and chief critic of President Obama’s far left green agenda

    Over the past decade, I have been leading the charge in Washington to make sure the global warming hoax is exposed. A big part of that effort has been putting the spotlight on what takes place at the UN’s annual global warming conferences. … This year’s UN conference is in Doha, Qatar and I’m pleased that Lord Christopher Monckton is there working with his partners, including CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker and Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com. I’m certainly looking forward to the release of Climate Depot’s new report that debunks the alarmists’ extreme weather claims. …

    Three years ago, President Obama helped create a United Nations Green Slush Fund that would redistribute over $100 billion from developed countries to developing countries. While he has been racking up huge deficits and talking up tax increases, the President has already sent billions of American taxpayer dollars to the United Nations – and he’s managed to do it quietly so that no one will notice.

    How many billions have already been handed over in the last three years? It’s hard to tell. There appears to be little in the way of transparency. …

    United Nations Climate Chief Christiana Figueres explained her job this way: “It is the most inspiring job in the world because what we are doing here is we are inspiring government, private sector, and civil society to [make] the biggest transformation that they have ever undertaken. The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.” This is the top UN Climate chief: she sees herself as the overseer of “transforming” the lives of everyone on the planet.”

    She can kiss my ass.

      OOOps. Were I inclined toward embarrassment, I would be…well, embarrassed. Of course, you are right. Haste makes waste.

    U.S.-Approved Arms for Libya Rebels Fell Into Jihadis’ Hands

    • U.S.-Approved Arms for Libya Rebels Fell Into Jihadis’ Hands
      December 5, 2012

      WASHINGTON — The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats. [I see, they are blaming Qatar for weapons getting into militant’s hands.]

      No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September. [If there was evidence, the NY Times wouldn’t report it because it involves Obama and the treasonous act of arming terrorists.]

      But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants, concerns that have not previously been reported. The weapons and money from Qatar strengthened militant groups in Libya, allowing them to become a destabilizing force since the fall of the Qaddafi government.
      ~
      ***After discussions among members of the National Security Council, the Obama administration backed the arms shipments from both countries [Qatar and the United Arab Emirates], according to two former administration officials briefed on the talks. [Talks with the UN instead of our government?]

      ~
      No evidence has surfaced that any weapons went to Ansar al-Shariah, an extremist group blamed for the Benghazi attack. [Another sentence to help the Obama administration.]

      • What a load of crap. This is preparing the spin for WHEN the whole story and the TRUTH come out (or threatens to). They obfuscate in advance.

        Oh, I see–the weapons just “fell into the hands” of al Qaeda. It wasn’t the plan all along. Nope.

        Just like Fast and Furious was a plan to interdict weapons, not to ARM the cartels so that our Second Amendment could be blamed for violence in Mexico so that Barry had a bogus excuse to push for gun control. There’s always a subtext. There’s always the REAL motive.

        They armed al Qaeda and you know what? Those “concerns” were previously reported HERE, just about the time that they BEGAN arming Libyan “rebels”. We knew it. Why didn’t the NY Times know it THEN?

        In Benghazi, they were planning to arm Syrian “rebels”, aka al Qaeda in Syria.

        No EVIDENCE has been found. Yet!

        Just like with Clinton. All we heard was that there was no “evidence” that he was messing around with Monica. Until there was.

        The mere fact that the NY Times sees fit to make that statement (“no evidence has surfaced that any weapons went to Ansar al-Shariah, an extremist group blamed for the Benghazi attack”) is the “TELL“.

        So they either fear that it has surfaced or they’ve made damned sure already that it will never surface, but the word has gone out to the JournOlist to tamp down ANY speculation about it.

        This is preventive spin. We can apply the Commie Barry rule: If they say it’s not so, then it most certainly is so: The weapons used against our guys in Benghazi were provided by us to al Qaeda. Guaranteed.

        • You know another way you know this is invented spin crap? MORE ANONYMOUS SOURCES. ANONYMOUS OR NONEXISTENT? Someone sitting in the bowels of the WH, just MAKING THINGS UP. Yeah, that’s the ticket. We’ll pin it on the Qataris.

    • The demographics as explained are very interesting.

      One way of looking at this is as the fruition of the socialist dream:with Obama’s money mostly coming from the very rich and his supposed mandate to raise taxes on the middle and working classes coming mainly from those dependent on government support, what we’re seeing is arguably the kind of forced socio-economic leveling Robin Hood’s fans have always dreamt of.

      Another, perhaps somewhat more obvious way of looking at this is to say the GOP represents the American taxpayer and thus has a very clear mandate not only not to compromise with Obama, but also to fight him every step of the way.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        But it’s not coming only from “the very rich”. As Mitt pointed out time and again, it’s small business owners who will be the most affected.

        • It started happening a couple years ago, and will only get worse for small businesses. I see lots of businesses closed in strip malls, and for lease signs everywhere. Those were small business owners who have taken the hit because of the rotten economy. Small towns will be hit even harder. Even if they close their businesses they have to pay taxes, or pay for the lease if they closed prior to its end, then there is that loan they took out to start their operation. Those don’t end just because they closed their doors.

    • I am surprised that Coburn goes along with this idea since he is a deficit hawk and was part of the Simpson Bowles Commission. Yet he does say it must be
      “coupled with spending cuts and entitlement reforms.” I don’t see the latter happening. Collins and Snowe are RINOs. Moderates, they say. Snowe announced she was retiring, so she will be gone shortly. Her elected replacement is an Independent and was previously the governor of Maine, and he will caucus with the Democrats…perfect isn’t it?

      • I just remembered hearing on a radio program yesterday that the deduction for home ownership that everyone uses is now considered a “loop hole.” Home owners should be prepared for that loophole to be closed and more taxes to be paid to this Marxist government. Of course, this won’t affect most of Obama’s constituents who don’t pay taxes anyway. But those that do aren’t going to be pleased with the person they elected. Vote and learn the consequences.

        • They’ll close the mortgage deduction “loophole” for the homeowners who actually pay their mortgages and meet their obligations, and they will use the money to “invest” in the deadbeat home “owners” who are behind on their bills, being foreclosed on because they bought houses they could NEVER afford with loans they could NEVER pay back because Barney Frank ordered banks to give them loans or else. And they will continue to vote for the DemoncRATS in return.

  31. They just put the power to arrest you in Obama’s hands. Thank the Senate! Outrageous! Unconstitutional! Where was the GOP on this? Played right into the hands of the Communists! Americans should watch out for Political prisoners now. American soldiers, our military, will be allowed to arrest Americans on American soil without charges! Show us where in the constitution they have this right? It is the opposite!

    Senate Unanimously Passes 2013 NDAA; Power to Arrest Americans Remains

    Senate Unanimously Passes 2013 NDAA; Power to Arrest Americans Remains

    Just after 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, the Senate did it again. By a vote of 98-0 (two senators abstained) lawmakers in the upper chamber approved the Fiscal Year 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Not a single senator objected to the passage once again of a law that purports to permit the president, supported by nothing more substantial than his own belief that the suspect poses a threat to national security, to deploy the U.S. military to arrest an American living in America.

    As The New American reported, an amendment to the 2013 version of the defense spending bill passed by the Senate clarified the right to trial of “citizens and permanent legal residents” detained under the relevant sections of the revamped measure.

    The amendment, known as the Feinstein-Lee Amendment, was cosponsored by Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Rand Paul (R-Ky.). In an interview Tuesday with The New American, spokesmen for Lee and Paul admitted that the amendment did not go far enough in the defense of due process, but said it was a step in the right direction.

    “Colored by our experience with the due process amendment to the NDAA we offered in 2012, we knew that we would have nowhere near the number of votes needed to pass an amendment that guaranteed due process for all persons detained under the NDAA,” explained Doug Stafford, chief of staff for Rand Paul.

    Stafford and Rob Porter, general counsel for the office of Senator Lee, reiterated that they recognize that the Feinstein-Lee Amendment was not the ideal attack on the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA. Senators Lee and Paul believe, the spokesmen assured The New American, that “the full panoply of due process rights should apply to all persons, not just American citizens.”

    For now, however, the NDAA 2013 is almost law, and the president’s power to send troops to arrest Americans living in America remains intact and unabridged. That is rightfully terrifying to constitutionalists, journalists, and any other American who fears being kidnapped by the military and indefinitely detained.

That is rightfully terrifying to constitutionalists, journalists, and any other American who fears being kidnapped by the military and indefinitely detained.

    Yes, the Feinstein-Lee Amendment explicitly guarantees the right of a trial by jury to American citizens, but it also explicitly authorizes the president to indefinitely detain them, a substantial step beyond even last year’s NDAA and the Authority for the Use of Military Force (AUMF), upon which it builds.

    Despite this despicable extension of despotic powers so unconscionable and unconstitutional, The Hill reported after the Tuesday’s vote that this year’s NDAA passed so overwhelmingly because of the “the lack of controversial issues this year.”

    Most senators were equally gleeful. [GLEEFUL?]

    ~
    Finally, although the denial of due process to all persons and the retention of the totalitarian power granted the president to deploy the U.S. military to arrest citizens without charge are by far the most loathsome and illegal provisions of the 2013 version of the NDAA, there are other sections equally worthy of condemnation.

Lord Monckton wanted to take on Gore for his lies, but Gore would never debate the truth – he has to much money invested along with others in the US to let this scam fail. The emails that were found/hacked in the UK showed how the scientists were in on the scam. There is no such thing. Yet these countries want the money from the industrialized countries to fight the lie. Basically, they want the money.

      UN Summit: Transforming Your Kids into “Climate Change Agents”

      Do your children (or grandchildren) have nightmares about the Earth melting or exploding due to human-caused global warming? Do they believe they have no future because our planet is dying, the icecaps and glaciers are melting, the sea levels are rising, islands and coastal areas are disappearing, polar bears and children are drowning, plant and animal species are rapidly going extinct, and extreme weather will soon make human life unbearable, if not impossible?

      Frightening, not Enlightening – Fear of an impending Climate Apocalypse apparently afflicts millions of children and adolescents worldwide, according to news stories in the mainstream media over the past few years. Psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers, and parents report that many children are depressed and fearful, have difficulty sleeping, and believe it is pointless to study or plan a career, since there is little hope for a livable future. As a result, many are experiencing serious psychological and physical health issues. This should not surprise anyone, considering that hundreds of millions of students have been captive audiences for Al Gore’s “documentary,” An Inconvenient Truth.

      • They’ve been deliberately scaring kids with these lies for decades, at least since the 70s (when back then they were scaring them with the “big freeze”). This is what DemoncRATS and leftists do–scare people. Like they scare old people into thinking that they’ll have to eat dog food and go without health care or be evicted from their homes. They don’t care what psychological damage they do. They deliberately set out to psychologically damage and traumatize others. It’s how they obtain power. In a similar vein, they try to teach us, their disloyal opposition, learned helplessness. Their Alinsky tactics are designed to wear us down, to demoralize us, to make us give up as if we have no power. Look at what’s happening in Egypt and think about the POWER that those demonstrators have. Will Morsi survive this? Time will tell. What can he do? Turn his weapons on his people? He’s already seen Gaddafi deposed and now they’re working on Assad, on the justification that they had to go because they turned weapons on their own people. By the same token …

        Speaking of Assad, does anybody else see the ironic parallel here? Where are these WMDs that Hillary and the world community plan to use as the excuse to go into Syria and depose Assad? Isn’t it funny that we read speculation last week about a planned black flag operation to use chemical weapons and PIN IT ON ASSAD?

        Isn’t this taking you on a flashback to when Saddam was planning to use WMDs on his own people? Oh, wait! He DID use them and the world community and the DemoncRATS said, “Ho hum.” Plame and Wilson said, “He had no WMDs.” The UN and the leftists and the media said, “Bush lied and people died” and “This is an illegal invasion and occupation of a sovereign country.” How times have changed.
