“O Christmas Tree”

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging;
Not only green when summer’s here,
But also when ’tis cold and drear.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me;
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me;
How often has the Christmas tree
Afforded me the greatest glee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Much pleasure thou can’st give me.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!
From base to summit, gay and bright,
There’s only splendor for the sight.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy candles shine so brightly!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,
And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee! !”

    “Obama Has to Fib Even at a Funeral”

    “Yes, everything is about Barack Obama. From the beginning, he has built his career on his own personal story, and the funeral service of former Hawaiian Senator Daniel Inouye at the National Cathedral on Friday apparently struck him as an opportune time to remind the world what that story was. In his 1,600-word oration, Obama even managed to work in the fact, as though someone in the universe might not have heard, that he had “a white mom [and] a black father” “and was raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
    The problem, however, is not just that Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times in the course of telling his story, but rather that even at a funeral, he could not keep the story straight.

    Post-re-election, reporters allow Obama to spin with impunity. They no longer seem worried that someone of the right will scoop them. They are confident that their media pals would ignore the scoop as well. They know that as long as they control the headlines, there can be no new Watergate — and Obama is beginning to sense it, too.”

    • “FIB?” They’re outright lies. I knew he was changing the story:
      “… The story of the trip set up the punch line. He told Inouye’s mourners that “my mother that summer would turn on the TV every night during this vacation and watch the Watergate hearings,” and he was forced to watch, too. Of course, the senator who “fascinated” him most was “this man of Japanese descent with one arm, speaking in this courtly baritone, full of dignity and grace.”

      This story would work only if Obama had toured the United States during the summer of the Watergate hearings, 1973, when he was eleven years old going on twelve, but in his memoir Dreams from My Father, he tells another story — a much more specific one. Yes, he made the same trip, but he did so “during the summer after my father’s visit to Hawaii, before my eleventh birthday.” This would have been 1972, when Watergate was still a third-rate burglary that had gotten little media traction. In Dreams, Obama mentioned a Kansas City stop along the way, and Madelyn’s youngest brother in suburban KC would later provide photographic evidence of the same. He confirmed the year as 1972. This disparity did not stop Obama from relating in Dreams how in that elusive summer he “watched the Watergate hearings every night before going to bed.” There was no mention of Senator Inouye. He was apparently trying to make some other point.”

  2. After this harrowing week waiting for my passport, it arrived yesterday morning and I picked it up at the Post Office. I am off to the U.K. in an hour for Christmas and to spend time with my daughter and her family.

    I wish each and everyone of you a Merrrrrry CHRISTmas!

  3. Who says there’s no “evidence” of vote fraud?

  4. Happy Festivus everyone!! 🙂

    • Happy Festivus. Have you aired your grievances yet? (We’ve aired ours every day for the past 4 years!)

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Nah. No Festivus here. Merry Christmas, though 😉

      • Any Festivus here is acknowledged in addition to CHRISTmas! We’ll accept other traditions, so long as everyone accepts ours. I read recently that one of the writers of that episode of Seinfeld actually did celebrate that “holiday” which his own father made up. It wasn’t exactly as shown on the TV show, but they did air their grievances and drink a lot! Seems that’s what ordinarily happened in their family around holidays, so they turned it into a special occasion. Maybe to get it out of the way? Anyway, Merry Christmas to all and

        Happy Birthday to Baby Jesus. The TRUE Lord and Savior.

  5. Is this not a disability?

    [The smoking what?!! I digress …]

    Formal Reprimand Issued To Flatulent Federal Worker
    Man’s gas blamed for creating “intolerable” workplace

    A federal employee was formally reprimanded this month for excessive workplace flatulence, a sanction that was delivered to him in a five-page letter that actually included a log of representative dates and times when he was recorded “releasing the awful and unpleasant odor” in his Baltimore office. … On August 14, a third administrator–a SSA “Deputy Division Director”–spoke with the worker about his “continuous releasing of your bodily gas and the terrible smell that comes with the gas.” The manager noted that the worker had said he was lactose intolerant and planned to purchase Gas-X, an over-the-counter remedy. The manager informed the employee that he “could not pass gas indefinitely and continue to disrupt the work place.”

    Despite these repeated warnings, the man apparently continued to struggle with his flatulence throughout the late-summer and fall.

    After stating that, “It is my belief that you can control this condition,” the author of the reprimand letter then noted, “The following dates show the time of your flatulence.” What followed was a log listing 17 separate dates (and 60 specific times) on which the employee passed gas. For example, the man’s September 19 output included nine instances of flatulence, beginning at 9:45 AM and concluding at 4:30 PM.

    The man was also accused of launching a trio of attacks on September 11.”

  6. We can all relax and enjoy our holidays knowing that the Ikea monkey is safe and in caring hands, where he won’t be required to wear a Santa suit on Christmas day, which was surely the reason he ran away from home.

    Canada’s “Ikea monkey” to spend Christmas at sanctuary
    By Fred Thornhill | Reuters – Fri, Dec 21, 2012–finance.html

    • “Monkeys are not legal pets in Toronto, so authorities moved Darwin to a sanctuary near Oshawa, about an hour outside Toronto. Nakhuda, a real estate lawyer, then launched a court bid to try to get him back.

      In a statement of claim filed earlier this month, Nakhuda said she was coerced into surrendering the monkey under the threat of criminal charges and told she would not be allowed to see him unless she cooperated.

      If granted custody, Nakhuda said she plans to move her family to a nearby cottage town that does not specifically ban pet monkeys.”

      So the “caring” PETA types removed Darwin (via thuggish blackmailing FORCE) from the only family he’s ever known so that he can spend the holidays in a “sanctuary” instead of with his FAMILY. So nice for them to care about the emotional well being of this primate.

      • Have you never seen Fatal Attractions on Animal Planet? Wild animals can never be truly domesticated and are not pets. The Nakhudas started this whole ugly thing by bringing a wild animal into their home as a pet and into Toronto where the monkey’s presence as a pet is illegal.

        • I’m just thinking of the creature’s emotional state at the current time. What’s done is done. Water under the bridge. It would have been better for the monkey to have been left wherever it lived in the wild (although it’s likely it was born to a captive animal or another pet). At this point, those people are the only family it knows. Now it’s taken from its “family” (monkeys are social creatures) and put into a cage. I just feel sorry for it because monkeys are possibly sentient beings. It knows what’s happening. I’m sure it grieves for its family.

  7. Nope…. ‘Darwin’ needs some LOVIN’ … No pet monkey’s in Toranto
    …. so a move is in order….

  8. Wondering… this his way to get ready to flip to the next page???

  9. Oh Bug~her’ …… today your lap top can hear all you say… since
    it is left open on a desk facing u~all…. & even see men doing his
    thing….home alone…. blackmail the biggies to stop going 2 trial etc.
    heard it on the radio last night… very interesting world we live in today.

  12. WHY?
    Suicide Suspected In Death Of Navy SEAL Cmdr. Job Price

    U.S. military officials are investigating the apparent suicide of a Navy SEAL commander in Afghanistan.

    Navy SEAL Cdr. Job W. Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., died Saturday of a non-combat-related injury while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan.

    A U.S. military official said the death “appears to be the result of suicide.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the death is still being investigated.”

    Official: Navy SEAL, Cmdr. Job W. Price, died of apparent suicide
    Cmdr. Job W. Price, 42, of Pottstown, Pa., died Saturday of a gunshot wound to the head while supporting stability operations in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan, a U.S. military official said Monday on condition of anonymity because the death is still under investigation.

    The official said Price failed to show up for an appointment and was found when others went to check on him.

    Price was from Virginia Beach, Va.-based SEAL Team 4, which is part of the mission to train Afghan local police to stave off the Taliban in remote parts of Afghanistan.

    It was not immediately known when Price started his tour of duty in Afghanistan, though he had been in command of the team of 25 to 30 men since June 2011, the official said.

  15. Christmas Blessings To All who Serve Our Country And Their Family’s


    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,
    in a one bedroom house made of plaster and stone.

    I had come down the chimney with presents to give,
    and to see just who in this little house lived.

    As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,
    No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.

    No Stockings by mantle, just boots filled with sand,
    On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands.

    With medals and badges, awards of all kinds,
    A sobering thought came through my mind.

    For this house was different, it was dark and dreary,
    The home of a soldier, I could now see clearly.

    The soldier lay sleeping, silent, alone,
    Curled up on the floor in this one bedroom home.

    The face was so gentle, the room in such disorder,
    Not how I picture a United States Soldier.

    Was this the hero of whom I’d just read?
    Curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?

    I realized the families that I saw this night,
    owed their lives to these soldiers who were willing to fight.

    Soon round the world, the children would play,
    and grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas day.

    They all enjoyed freedom each month of the year,
    because of the soldiers, like the one lying here.

    I couldn’t help wondering how many lay alone,
    on a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.

    The very thought brought a tear to my eye,
    I dropped to one knee and started to cry.

    The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice,
    “Santa don’t cry, for this life is my choice”.

    I fight for freedom, I don’t ask for more,
    My life is my God, my country, my corps.”

    The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep,
    I couldn’t control it, I continued to weep.

    I kept watch for hours, so silent and still,
    as we both shivered from the cold night’s chill.

    I didn’t want to leave, on that cold, dark night,
    this guardian of honor, so willing to fight.

    Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure,
    whispered, “Carry on Santa…., It’s Christmas Day…., All is secure.

    One look at my watch, and I knew he was right,
    Merry Christmas my friend…. and to all a Good Night.

      Beautiful. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Leza.

      • Thank You Rosemary. It was, my entire family got together, best Christmas I’ve had in year’s. The kid’s left home years ago, and I still suffer from empty nest syndrome. 😦

        I hope yours was just as good. So good too see you here more btw.

  16. MERRY CHRISTMAS too all here at WTPOTUS

  17. If you’re traveling over the holidays by air, think of this:

    Ex-TSA Screener: Officers “Laughing” At Your Naked Image

    A former TSA screener turned blogger who is now causing embarrassment for the federal agency has revealed that TSA officers routinely laugh at and make fun of passengers’ nude body scanner images in back rooms.

    In a blog entitled Taking Sense Away, the anonymous ex-TSA worker reveals how he, “Witnessed light sexual play among officers, a lot of e-cigarette vaping, and a whole lot of officers laughing and clowning in regard to some of your nude images, dear passengers.

    The revelation was in response to a reader who asked, “Tell us, please, what really happens in that private room and why the TSA does not want it seen in public nor recorded.””

    • As if TSA workers aren’t a bunch of butt-ugly, fat-a**es themselves. Freakin’ hypocrites.

      By the way, what the heck is an e-cigarette? And what does vaping mean?

      • How true. They ARE butt-ugly and certainly obese. At least the ones I’ve seen, with a few exceptions. That TSA is one of Barry’s feather bedding programs to bloat the government by employing and making dependent a bunch of people who would be lucky to have jopsssss anyway. I read that blogger’s post and he said basically this is what WILL happen when you employ a bunch of undereducated, classless people to look, IN TOTAL SECRECY, at nude images of the publich. Duh. I’m not sure what vaping is, either. Pretending to send vapor out of the image of someone’s rear? Let me go look it up.

        • I’m back. Vaping is smoking electronic cigarettes. They make water vapor that looks like smoke. I suppose the airports are smoke free, so employees are allowed to “vape” their e-cigarettes in place of real ones.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            Could be “vamping” vamp 2 |vamp| informal
            a woman who uses sexual attraction to exploit men.
            verb [ with obj. ]
            blatantly set out to attract: she had not vamped him like some wicked Jezebel.

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        I, the typical white girl”, got pulled out of line recently. I asked the woman “so, are you going to feel me up?” “No mam. We’re not going to feel you up” was the answer. I got hand swabbed instead. But that paled in comparison when re-entering the country. WOW, has America got other countries cowed, is all I will say. Waaaaaaay overboard. But due to the fact this is the “interwebs”, this is all I will say about the matter. BB IS Watching You!

    • ya’ll made me think of this

  18. Here’s an interesting story that asserts that the Obama administration talking points about Benghazi and the non-existent protest was propaganda from the Libyan government:


    The thing is, it appears to me that the talking point about a “spontaneous” protest comes directly from Ansar al Shariya! Watch starting about 2:50 into the video. The propaganda was from the Muslim Brotherhood and Ansar al Shariya. They and the Libyan government blame the U.S. for the escalation of the attack, as if it only began when those protecting the “consulate” fired on the crowd. There WAS no crowd and, iirc, nobody fired on any attackers until the ex-SEALS arrived from the annex. I noted at this link how the word “spontaneous” was a talking point that was used over and over by Susan Rice. We talked about this immediately after the attack and the alleged “protest” angle was debunked by Brigitte Gabriel and Walid Shoebat almost immediately, too:

    • please forgive me if I harp on this point…but this is not a “consulate”. Our consulate is in Tripoli, not Benghazi. If you read any Obama headlines ,you will notice the distinction that the ” US mission” in Benghazi was fired on, but the term consulate keeps being used by new media and others. As far as I know we had no consulate in Benghazi….this was an area that was off limits to our earlier Ambassador while Gaddaffi was still alive. There was a faction of people in that area who were against his regime and the previous Ambassador was caught in that area and was ordered to leave the country. Since Gadaffi literally bit the dust,maybe this was going to be a consulate,but it wasn’t. I am trying to remember the name of the group of people there…if I could there is all sorts of information pertaining to the Benghazi area and the possible people that our CIA were associating with.

      • It’s a point worth harping on. They kept saying consulate, sometimes even embassy, as if to hide the fact that it’s actually a “mission” and most likely a COVERT one, with the CIA. That’s what they’re hiding–WHAT THEY WERE DOING THERE IN BENGHAZI!

        That’s why I put “consulate” in quotes, although the stories don’t. Only weeks later did they start to backtrack and call it a mission.

  19. For what it’s worth:

    Team Obama Freaks: Seeks To Stop Discovery;
    Obama Subpoena Imposes Undue Burden


    WASHINGTON D.C. – A clearly panicked and desperate Barack Hussein Obama, II has dispatched his lawyers to intervene in Montgomery Blair Sibley’s Electoral College lawsuit to stop Sibley’s subpoenas from revealing information which could prove devastating to Mr. Obama. Ironically wearing the veil of the United States, Mr. Obama’s lawyers filed on his behalf their Motion of the United States for a Stay of Discovery Or, Alternatively, to Quash Subpoenas and Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss, to Stay All Discovery, and for Sanctions.

    In Response, Sibley has filed his: Response to Motion of The United States to Stay Discovery Or Quash Subpoenas and Plaintiff’s Response to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss and Reply to Defendants’ Omnibus Response.

    Sibley said: “Let me strip away the legal gobbledygook and speak plainly: Obama doth protest too much, methinks. There comes a point when Judge Bates should not be ignorant as a judge of what he knows as a man.1 Unless everyone wants to behave like ostriches, we cannot ignore the mounting evidence of Mr. Obama’s ineligibility to be President. Simply stated, what is Mr. Obama hiding and why he is so fearful that his 20th Century records will be released? James Madison said: ‘A popular Government, without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy, or perhaps both.’ I fear we are at Madison’s long-ago predicted Prologue.””

    Links at the above link to the actual motions, etc. Oy. This is so tiring. Will we live to see the TRUTH emerge?

  20. “Obama Forgerygate Accomplice Appoints Obama Forgerygate Accomplice To U.S. Senate”

    “Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie announced tonight Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz will replace the late Sen. Daniel Inouye as the U.S. senator from Hawaii — not Sen. Inouye’s first choice.

    On the day he died, the late senator wrote a letter to Abercrombie asking that he pick Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, to replace him. […]

    Schatz served in the Hawaii House of Representatives from 1998 to 2006. In 2006, he launched an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. Congress.

    Schatz served as chairman of the Democratic Party of Hawaii from 2008 to 2010. He was sworn in as lieutenant governor in December 2010.”

    • Oh, you have to be kidding me. Payment for services rendered. People all over the world are calling in their chips, huh? Somebody suggested that’s how Lamb and the others managed to keep their jopsssss at the Dept. of State after Benghazi. They all know the truth; they’re angling to use it to their own benefit. It pays to keep lips zipped.

    • Schatz is flying to DC with Barry! How cozy. SO, they picked YET ANOTHER white male instead of either of the two other candidates–both FEMALE and both, sounding from their names, as if they’re “minority” candidates, i.e. Native Hawaiians? (I believe they’re both of Japanese ancestry) So much for diversity!!! The media were praising the Dems for all the minority female newcomers in the Senate and House. I wonder how the Native Hawaiians feel now? And they didn’t even honor the late Inouye’s wishes.

      Barry is keeping Schatz close. Loose lips sink ships, as the saying goes.

  21. You’ll appreciate the humor in this one. NOT!

    Una Fraude
    December 2012, New York, NY. The New York Board of Elections circulates fraudulent voter registration forms in Spanish. (Of course! Even though proficiency in English is one of the requirements for citizenship, and many illegal people here from Latin American are, in fact, illiterate in Spanish).

    These fraudulent Spanish voter registration forms ask the applicant, in the first box, if he or she is a citizen of North America! North America is actually comprised of the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, where most illegals are from. So, technically, the illegal alien from Mexico or Canada is a citizen of North America! A scanned hard copy of this form is included below, with the question of North American citizenship highlighted in orange.

    So the illegal alien from North America does not even have to get creative with his or her voter fraud in New York, because the New York Board of Elections does it for him or her!

    This calls, of course, into question the veracity and legality of any of the election results.

    Here is the scanned, fraudulent New York voter registration form:

    NY ICE Voter Registration in Spanish-1 1

    Actually, later on, the person must attest with a signature that s/he is a citizen of the United States, although note that the full name of Mexico is “The United States of Mexico” so a Mexican citizen could plausibly sign that s/he is a citizen of the “United States” as the form doesn’t specify: OF AMERICA.

    So for what reason does the form ask whether someone is a citizen of “North America”? Something not adding up here.

  22. Brian E Schatz …..Support for O… photo of his Hawaiian wife Linda

    • It was hilarious today, reading how the lamestream “reported” this selection! They did actually report that Inouye’s “dying wish” (as he himself characterized it) was for that minority woman to get his job. And they also reported about the other female candidate. They basically had no explanation for dissing Inouye’s last wish, other than that Abercommie claimed he had to think about what’s best for the state of Hawaii, presumably a white male! But wait! He promises that one of his priorities will be to get “recognition” for Native Hawaiians as a tribe. (Reparations, too, most likely. That’s what they want.)

    • No mention there of the huge service he did for Barry in 2008.

    • Corsi’s take on it:

      Obama ignores senator’s dying wish

      Barack Obama has overruled the wish of the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, to name a Japanese-American congresswoman as his Senate successor, choosing instead to reward a Hawaii ally who played a key role in sidestepping Obama’s birth certificate controversy to certify him for the Hawaii presidential ballot in 2008.

      On his deathbed, Inouye’s last wish was to ask Hawaii Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to name U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa as his successor.

      Hanabusa will “represent Hawaii with the same fervor and commitment that I brought to the Senate chamber since 1962,” Inouye wrote Abercrombie, as reported by Hawaii’s KHON-TV.

      Everything seemed in place for Hanabusa until Obama decided to take the family to Hawaii for Christmas.

      We have a death-bed wish from a senator that is about the 30th person to lie in state at the Capitol. I think chances of that not happening are slim to none,” John Hart, chairman of Hawaii Pacific University’s Communications Department, told the Hawaii television station. [HIS BAD! I guess he wasn’t paying attention to the “birther” stories.]

      When Hawaii’s Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz flew back to Washington, there was no doubt Abercrombie succumbed to the wishes of Obama in making the final determination of Inouye’s successor.

      Schatz posted on Twitter a statement indicating he had a “brief chat” with Obama on Air Force One and that he was looking forward to supporting Obama’s agenda in the Senate.

      In 2008, Schatz, then serving as head of the Democratic Party in Hawaii and a spokesman for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, entered the Obama birth certificate controversy. He declined to request from the Hawaii Department of Health documented proof Obama was eligible to run for president, as evidenced by an original record of Obama’s 1961 birth records, which are kept under wraps in the Hawaii Department of Health vault.

      Hawaii law requires each party to specify in writing that the presidential candidate is constitutionally eligible.

      As WND reported, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in her capacity as chairwoman of the Democratic National Convention, provided the required certification … that specified Obama was eligible, a representation Pelosi omitted on the certifications submitted for Obama in the other 49 states.”

      Barry never goes to Hawaii unless there’s something to deal with in regard to his ineligibility. I wonder if Abercrombie thought that this opportunity to replace Inouye was “golden”? What will Abercommie get for acquiescing to Barry’s demands?

      • After reading Zenway’s comment below @ December 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm I knew there had too be a connection to Robert A. Nordyke, daddy of the Nordyke twin’s.

        ACP Internist

        Robert A. Nordyke, FACP

        By Irwin J. Schatz, MACP

        Robert A. Nordyke, FACP, age 78, died Aug. 23 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was ACP’s Governor for Hawaii from 1981-85 and received the chapter’s Laureate Award in 1990.

        Dr. Nordyke was a pioneer in nuclear medicine and recognized the subspecialty’s importance in its infancy. He also had the prescient ability to anticipate advances in many areas of medicine well before his colleagues. The emerging field of medical informatics fascinated him before it became popular, and he constantly reminded us about its potential for changing the way we practice.

        At the new University of Hawaii Medical School, Dr. Nordyke worked tirelessly in the department of medicine from its very beginnings, serving as chief of the division of nuclear medicine from 1974 to 1995. He was an invaluable confidante and advisor to the successive chairs of medicine, including myself.

        His career was characterized by devotion to his patients and a strong commitment to his fellow practitioners, residents and students. A prolific medical author, he published more than 100 professional papers; these activities in research and writing continued even after his retirement from the Straub Clinic in June 1995.

        Dr. Schatz is a former Governor for ACP’s Hawaii Chapter.

  24. Rosemary Woodhouse

    Okay you guys. Today was very weird. An anecdotal sampling, but….odd. I live in an extremely blue/Democrat area. I was dragged into a political discussion- something I avoid, IRL, believe it or not . Well, NOT ONE PERSON VOTED FOR THIS POtUS, nor did ANYBODY anyone knows, exponentially. Everyone voted for Romney, and everyone the know voted for hims as well.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Reminder…read posts before clicking “post comment.

      “Everyone voted for Romney, and everyone they know voted for him as well.”

      Will I never learn? sigh

    • Most of my Dem friends and family were shocked Obama won. They were stunned. Shell shocked. And very, very, quiet as they KNOW he could not have won. They were counting on the Republicans to get rid of him and even with many of them voting for Romney or sitting out, Obo still won. They don’t dare even speak the truth because it scares the shit out of them. What they do from here, I don’t know. Surreal.

        When I plainly stated “it was v o t e r f r a u d”….. silence. They cannot even process the “notion”.

      • I’ll bet they were counting on Obama being beaten, but he’s not one for getting beat. By any means necessary. He’s NEVER won a FAIR election yet. NEVER. They should be scared. We have them to thank for putting him in the WH in the first place. We ALL pay for their fundamental stupid myopia. I wonder how all the Hawaiians feel about Barry today.

    • I’m not surprised. One has to wonder whether the German people really did elect Hitler or whether they were masters of vote fraud, too.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Personally, I would love to see Paul Ryan as Speaker. As everyone knows, my first choice was Allen West, but “they” ensured that would never happen.

      The first order of the House should be to ensure that going forward, our elections are fair, honest, open and most important “legal”. They must stress that “legal” is not voter suppression. Illegals do not get to vote. EVERYONE must present ID AND their vote must be nationally computerized so nobody can vote more than once! I’m all for the Iraq Purple Finger of Fate if it works because as it turns out we, the taxpayers, are the only ones obeying the laws and paying for the privilege of doing so! I am sick of it and know you all are too.

      And the media must be dealt with immediately, The FCC must be purged. Look, they are already calling us “Victorian”. Who give a flying…..leap? And on that ironic note, re-institute obscenity, decency and profanity laws. Regulate Hollywood and gaming software not guns. The solutions really aren’t that complex.

      • Rosemary! I read a column today that reminds us that the Speaker of the House does NOT have to be a member of the House. I didn’t check the Constitution, but I take the writer’s word for it. If that’s the case, then they could elect Allen West as Speaker! Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

    • It’s ugly, imho.

      “Benjamin Franklin once said, “Experience holds a dear school, but a fool will learn in no other.” Before Republicans give the left the pleasure of watching the party split over the speakership, we should at least consider the possibility that Boehner’s strategy was to give his party a chance to survive until the landscape becomes more forgiving. Once the electorate learns in the School of Hard Knocks what they did not learn in their public schools or on the evening news, they might be willing to give the GOP’s ideas another look.”

      Give his party a chance to survive until the landscape becomes more forgiving? That’s what drove them to agree to creating the stupid “fiscal cliff” in the first place. They thought after 2012 that the “landscape” would be “more forgiving.” In other words, they thought either a Republican would beat Obama OR that they would take the Senate. What they didn’t count on is VOTE FRAUD. They may NEVER get a “more forgiving” landscape, so long as they don’t grow some and stand up to vote fraud AND to Barry’s ineligibility. It’s now or never.

  25. WND’s Woman of the Year ought to become the next Speaker!

    GOP ‘rock star’ named ‘Woman of the Year’
    Honor goes to God-fearing, gun-loving champion of Constitution

    For her extraordinary dedication to America’s founding principles and steadfast defense of the Constitution, WND has named Rep. Michele Bachmann 2012 “Woman of the Year.”

    Bachmann is a gutsy, pro-life fiscal conservative who dared to vote against raising the debt ceiling. She’s a God-fearing, gun-loving advocate of tax cuts and domestic oil drilling – and has proven to be one of Obamacare’s worst nightmares.”

    If only Michele would say what she knows.

  26. Daddy …Dr. Irwin Schatz … also worked at Queens Hospital in
    Hawaii etc. …has it been removed from wiki above…. ? interesting….

    • What’s interesting, furthermore, is that since Schatz has already been sworn in, then he eclipses that minority female Senator-elect Hirono and therefore becomes Hawaii’s SENIOR senator.

  27. Did not know this about Stormin Norman:
    “Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24, 1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his father, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., founder and commander of the New Jersey State Police, was then leading the investigation of the Lindbergh kidnap case. That investigation ended with the arrest and 1936 execution of German-born carpenter Richard Hauptmann for murdering famed aviator Charles Lindbergh’s infant son.

    The elder Schwarzkopf was named Herbert, but when the son was asked what his “H” stood for, he would reply, “H.”
    As a teenager Norman accompanied his father to Iran, where the elder Schwarzkopf trained the Iran’s national police force and was an adviser to Reza Pahlavi, the young Shah of Iran.

    So, anywhere from 1947 to 1953 (teenager) the General was in Iran.

  28. they Gang Raped her 2 Death ….. feels like the USA 2 ME!

    they call her….. Amanat… “TREASURE” … in Urdy

  29. Miri – help! I logged in using my name instead of my handle. Please delete and I will repost!

    • I’m confused. I don’t see a problem. I don’t see your name instead of your handle. Not to worry. All anybody can see on the page is your handle. If you mistakenly used a different email address, nobody sees it but us and we’re not telling. 🙂

      Oh, nevermind! I found the comment you were worried about. It’s gone forevah! It never got out of moderation, so no hay problemo.

  30. Hi there WTPOTUS administrators – my company uses Sonic Wall to prevent access to known gaming, porn and other sites they don’t want us surfing to. I usually check in with you all from work at the end of the day. I was able to get to this blog yesterday from work, but today, no go. Sonic Wall said the access was blocked, due to this blog being a porn site. I went through the process of asking that the site be reviewed, clicking on the category of political/advocacy as a better description for what is found here. Not sure if anything else can be done, but wanted to bring it to your attention. Personally, I don’t think it was a mistake…just another underhanded way to try to trample on our first amendment rights. In spite of it all, have a wonderful and safe new year – everyone!

    • Sure, it’s porn. Truth porn.

    • Hi, there, flygirl. We administrators are rather behind our time. We were making rather merry this past week. 🙂 Thanks for the heads up. This has happened to us before, and while I would not be surprised to find that the obots are wreaking havoc, as they are wont to do, being the neo-NAZIs that they are, it may be that something else has set off their software. Sometimes there’s a word or phrase, or even an image, that is misinterpreted by their computer programs. Usually, when someone advises them of their “mistake”, they correct their programs. We’ve been blocked before as a site that broke WordPress rules simply because I posted an image of a Big Mac. They thought we were advertising for McDonald’s! In another case, obots, the tricksey little mothers that they are, reported us as a porn site, so for a time we were blocked. I hope that by now your report to Sonic Wall has worked and they’ve discovered that, no, we are NOT a porn site. We are much higher minded than that!

      Happy New Year to you, too! TY!

      I did read today that Facebook has seen fit to censor at least one page simply for accurately quoting Ghandi who DECRIED THE CONFISCATION OF GUNS FROM THE INDIAN PEOPLE BY THE BRITS! Of course, they may “explain” this later as their software because, if you look at the page, it appears almost as if they’re advertising his autobiography. Who the heck knows? Facebook is a MASS of advertisements. “Likes” are nothing more than ads.

      “Facebook bans Gandhi quote as part of revisionist history purge”
      Here’s the image:


      What say u? See anything wrong with that, other than that it’s a rather inconvenient truth that Ghandi, an ICON of the left, opposed gun control in INDIA for the VERY REASON that our WISE Founders opposed it here. Apparently the Brits, which would include born-British subject Barack Hussein Obama II, like HITLER, recognized how hard it is to enslave or keep enslaved the PEOPLE when they are adequately ARMED in order to RESIST tyranny.

      That story links to further evidence that the Facebook peeps are neo-Nazis. There’s a “political statement” that they can sit on, and spin.

      Perhaps they were reported as being “racist” because of how they emphasized the word “blackest”. Maybe they took it as a racist slam against Obama, who, of course, would LOVE to totally disarm the American People. Well, he currently is intending to unilaterally disarm us of our nukes.

  31. Hi Bridgette
    Welcome to the UK
    I came here 25 years ago……
    I stayed
    Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

  32. Something very strange going on in WTPOTUS Blogland today. Only two commenters ALL DAY? And neither are from a ‘regular’? Really? Upside down world, for sure. Prayers for you all, if you even see this.

    • Noticed that too,which isn’t all that strange,but what was strange to me was a local ad posted just under someone’s video post. I clicked on it just to see and it was a car insurance add. Why would that be on the blog?

      • I think those ads come with the video. I don’t know that we can do anything about it. I just noticed that myself recently–that now they embed ads into the videos.

    • What A Hoot. No worries. Bridgette is on hiatus (wish I were with her there!) and I’ve been offline, enjoying the holidays. It always gets slow around holidays because our readers and commenters are enjoying their lives. Things will pick up again after the new year. (We hope!)

  33. Rosemary Woodhouse

    No proof, but one can only hope (in order to be dashed again and again) Hopefully, one of these days, out hope will bear fruit.

    What A Hoot- I’ve seen dave m post before. I’m sure they’re all fine and will check in as soon as they read your post. This is a busy week for everyone.

    • Oh, yes, I see dave m. and flygirl post before; I was referring to you daily prolific posters and researchers. Thanks for responding. One day awhile back there were no new posts for most of the day and then in the evening there they all were with times posted from throughout the day. They just were not showing up for and then I felt like I got a wonderful document dump! 🙂

      • Bridgette is a night owl and I’m a day person (although I’d be a night owl, too, if I had my druthers, which I don’t). Our other authors are hit and miss and as for our regular commenters, they come and go as they please. We keep it loose.

  34. Have you seen this, i don’t know if it’s true or not…..

    BREAKING NEWS – Hawaii state registrar Alvin Onaka has publicly certified to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that Barack Obama’s HI birth certificate is legally non-valid and the White House image is a forgery.

    • Reading between the lines and with experience gained from reading and following this issue and the people involved in this issue: This appears to be a submission to Al Hendershot from (guessing here) butterdezillion. I have read this interpretation of what the Hawaiian officials said and DID NOT SAY on her blog. This appears to be an open letter to those representatives of the People (if you want to call them that) pointing out their error in repeating that the Hawaiians have vouched for Obama’s birth certificate, when, in fact, they REFUSE TO DO SO and instead dance around it and obfuscate.

        • Click to access complete-klayman-letter-to-bauer.pdf

          That’s what it’s all about. Onaka would NOT verify that the “birth facts” are facts. He said, outside the requirements of Hawaiian law, that what’s on the “copy” supplied from the WH blog “matches” what’s on some record in their files. He does NOT attest to the accuracy of ANY of the facts or state that a VALID birth certificate exists in Hawaii for Obama, although that’s what he was asked to do when he sidestepped the question and the law. He didn’t follow the law because, imho, he cannot–to do so would be to admit that Obama is lying about his birth.

          • Orly Taitz is saying on her blog that someone is circulating false information. She’s referring to this story at Al Hendershot’s site that’s based upon butterdezillion’s analysis of Larry Klayman’s letter to Robert Bauer. Confusing enough for you? In any case, it’s NOT a new admission by Onaka. All it is is an analysis of what he did and more pointedly, DID NOT SAY. He did not, as required by Hawaiian law, VERIFY the birth facts requested to be verified by the AZ Sec. of State. He evaded, dodged, hemmed and hawed. Deliberately because, as Klayman says, Onaka is an educated man, a PhD. He wouldn’t be so incompetent as to not realize what the law says he must do. He couldn’t politically admit that the “facts” as stated by Obama aren’t FACTS, so he dodged. He didn’t send Bennett the regular verification letter. No, he made up something special to obfuscate for Barry. He didn’t verify facts or admit to any forgery. He simply said what the WH LFCOLB on its blog CLAIMS matches the CLAIMS found on whatever record is in Hawaii. But it seems obvious, at least to Klayman and butterdezillion, that the record, whatever it is, was never PROVED and accepted as legal. It’s an invalid record. That’s assumed from what Onaka says and doesn’t say because he didn’t VERIFY the birth facts. He can’t verify them because he doesn’t know what’s true.
