“What Will It Take to Mend the Nation?”

New McNaughton Painting 

Mending the Nation

Click images to enlarge

In his new release, “Mending the Nation,” artist John McNaughton sees a nation in “disarray.” The artist wonders what it will take to rebuild America in the wake of our current financial crises, a compromised military, attacks on our constitutional rights and the decline of the moral fabric of our society.

Each family member featured in “Mending the Nation” represents a different value: courage, family, hope, faith and love. McNaughton says those five are the keys to rebuilding America: “Each value is required to make it work. Remove one and the whole system fails.”

“What will it take to mend the nation?” McNaughton asks.

“I think that the American spirit is alive, and if we muster enough courage and commitment, it can be done.”

About Mending the Nation by the Artist

I had a vision of a family gathered around an American flag. Not just any flag, but that of a fallen serviceman, a father, a son, a daughter; the kind of flag that would be laid over a casket with great reverence. But upon examining the flag, one can see that it is in horrible condition. Its colors are faded, the edges are torn and there are many holes. It has been trampled and has not been treated with the honor and respect, which it deserves.

Today, our nation is in disarray. Our Constitution has been trampled, our financial solvency is in question, our military is compromised, and the decline of the moral fabric of our society is in question. Our government has lost the trust of the people. Our courts do not uphold the Constitution and the American people are afraid for the future of their children. What will it take to mend the nation?

I think that the American spirit is alive and if we muster enough courage and commitment it can be done. . The last time I saw such courage was after 9/11 when the country came together for a common good. If we are going to rebuild America I believe it will take FIVE VALUES. Courage, Family, Hope, Faith, and Love; each value is required to make it work—remove one and the whole system fails. In this painting, each member of the family represents a different value.

  1. “Sen. Crapo [Idaho] Confirms Sen. Cruz Ineligible To Be President: Lies About Obama Birth Certificate”

    “CRAP: “The Certificate of Live Birth released by the White House bears the certification of the Hawaii State Registrar. Experts reviewing the documents generally concur it contains all the elements of a valid Certificate of Live Birth, including all the relevant data and signatures. Claims that the document was forged have not been substantiated.” – U.S. Senator Mike Crapo – February 25th, 2013 –

    FACT: “Investigators for an Arizona sheriff’s volunteer posse have declared that President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is definitely fraudulent. Members of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s posse said in March that there was probable cause that Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery.”
    “Michael Dean “Mike” Crapo … is the senior United States Senator from the state of Idaho, in office since 1999. Previously he served as the United States Representative for Idaho’s 2nd congressional district from 1993 to 1999. He is a member of the Republican Party.”

    • CRAP: Name those “experts”. Name ONE “expert” who examined the REAL original paper document. That’s the only way to determine that it actually is authentic and “bears the certification of the Hawaii State Registrar.”

      CRAP: Please have your “expert” define for us the word “TXE” and ask him/her to explain whether that’s standard language on a “real” birth certificate.

      CRAP: You say experts “generally concur” that it has the elements of a valid record. Which of your experts did not concur?

      CRAP: How can claims of forgery BE “substantiated” without anyone examining the real, 3-D, PAPER document? Have you asked the state of Hawaii to allow you or any of your experts to do so? If not, WHY NOT?

      Ha! Gordo, guess what? I just read the link at ORYR. I responded to your quotation, above, before I read their story. They echo what I ask of Crapo. Except I missed the excellent point that Obama has released NOTHING that could pass as a birth certificate, even to get into Eric Holder’s DOJ building. Or anywhere else, for that matter. In MO, a citizen can’t even get a driver’s license or a concealed carry permit with what Barry “released”. Another good point they made: The “certification” on the LFCOLB doesn’t even CERTIFY that it’s a “true and accurate” representation of his birth record, and that, iirc, differs from every other birth certificate we’ve seen out of Hawaii.

      Here’s Crapo’s letter to his constituent:

      He claims: “[T]he State of Hawaii has clearly declared that the birth certificate showing that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961, is valid. Both the Director of Hawaii’s Department of Health and the state’s Registrar of Vital Statistics confirmed that Mr. Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961 and, as such, meets the constitutional citizenship requirements for the presidency.”

      CRAP: OK. WHEN did they CONFIRM this as fact? On the record, in their official capacity, and under pain of criminal liability if they’re lying? When did they EVER confirm who his parents are? Without OFFICIAL confirmation that his parents were citizens of the USA and that he was BORN IN THE USA, you cannot declare him eligible.

      Crapo would deny the presidency to Cruz because he was born in Canada and one parent was not a citizen. Yet he would apparently award the presidency to anyone born in the USA, EVEN IF BOTH PARENTS WERE NOT CITIZENS OF THE USA. He says the states determine eligibility for the presidency, and only if there’s contrary documentation will it be decided by the courts. However, does he realize the amount of contrary documentation that exists? What about Barry’s own publisher saying for nearly 2 decades, until he decided to run for president, that he was born in KENYA, in the exact same circumstance, then, of Ted Cruz, except that Cruz doesn’t LIE. Oh, he qualifies that the contrary documents must be “verified”. Go figure. Nobody’s yet seen a VERIFIED document from Barry or Hawaii confirming that he IS qualified. So Crapo accepts the obot argument that NO employer (or even the DOJ would accept): Eligible until proven ineligible. When you want to get into the DOJ, just tell them that even though you don’t have your photo ID, they have to assume you’re eligible to enter until they can produce contrary and VERIFIED evidence that you’re not eligible to enter the building. He is aware of all the court cases, but doesn’t realize that the fact that none of them will hear the cases instead of VERIFYING the documentation, proves his premise false. There is plenty of contrary evidence, but the judicial system will give citizens no relief. It’s his job to find out why. And his job to stand up for the citizens against the judiciary and the executive branch. Crapo doesn’t specifically address Cruz’s situation and he FAILS TO NOTE that there’s a qualifier: A person born overseas to two citizen parents must have parents who are of the correct age to transmit citizenship to the child. If they don’t meet the age requirement, the child is not a citizen but is a citizen of the foreign country.

      • He would deny Ted Cruz the presidency but not the children of Osama bin Laden if they were born here to two non-citizen parents?

  2. “CPAC: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Agrees Obama Identity Document Fraud Issue Not Behind Us”

  3. “Press release: Taitz talks to 4 congressmen and multiple members of the media during CPAC. Congressmen are stating that the Department of Justice, who supposedly acted on their behalf in Grinols case never forwarded to them any documents, they were clueless.”

    “… I asked, if he as a US Congressman and member of the Judiciary committee indeed felt that it is proper for Obama to use the SSN that was not assigned to him, whether he indeed directed the US Department of Justice to represent him and oppose the injunction. Gohmert stated in front of all the reporters that he did no know anything about this and that the Department of Justice never gave him any papers.

    Later reporters, who witnessed the conversation took more in depth interviews, among them reporters from US News and World Report, National Reviews and a reporter from Australian TV.

    Senator Inhofe similarly did not know anything about it. The conversation took place in front of the talk show host Rusty Humphries . Taitz talked to Congressman Steven King. He said that if the Department of Justice were to give him any papers he would remember it.

    He stated that his staff will review all the info and will prepare an executive report for him. He should have an answer in 1 week. LT. Zullo and talk show host Carl Gallops stood next to Taitz during this conversation and witnessed Taitz giving the documents to King.”

    • It sounds as if the new Pope has Orly’s blessing:

      “… Aside from being a remarkable person in his own right, Bergoglio, who will go by Francis the 1st, in memory of St. Francis of Asissi, will be a formidable force standing in the way of the proliferation of the Socialism and Communism.

      If you recall, Pope John Paul the second, who came from the Communist Poland, was the lifeline, the breathe of fresh air and a strong force for reforms, towards democratization and freedoms in the Eastern Europe. …

      It will be an interesting time, to see possible realignment of forces in the aftermath of passing of Chavez and election of Bergoglio, Francis the 1st, as the next pope.”

        May we be spared. May we NOT be the generation. May this NOT be the time. And, on a personal note, may God forgive me because I cannot forgive those who have not only trespassed against us, but plotted and schemed through the decades to trample us underfoot. Slowly insinuating its way into the very fabric of our being…. drip, drip, drip… resulting in the erosion of everything this nation has ever stood for and turned it on its head! Our country now represents that which our brave military fought and many died for since our great nation’s inception. Seriously, may God forgive me. I trust there are many like me. May God forgive us all.

        Our Father, Who art in heaven
        Hallowed be Thy Name;
        Thy kingdom come,
        Thy will be done,
        on Earth as it is in Heaven.
        Give us this day our daily bread,
        and forgive us our trespasses,
        as we forgive those who trespass against us;
        and lead us not into temptation,
        but deliver us from evil. Amen.

          EDIT Our nation is now the antithesis of that which our brave military fought and many died for since our great nation’s inception

  4. This is apparently NOT A JOKE and NOT SATIRE. Obama would not eat the food that was served at the Republican lunch because HIS TASTER WAS NOT THERE. Even though the Republicans ate it, that wasn’t good enough for him, so he sat there and did not eat.

    “Obama couldn’t eat at Hill meeting without food ‘taster’

    Following President Obama’s lunch meeting with Senate Republicans on Capitol Hill, Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins described the food served and said the president was not able to eat since his “taster” was not present. [There was audio at the link, but it’s “not available” now.]

    “University of Maine recipe for healthy lobster salad — I pointed that out to the president in keeping with the first lady’s initiatives and Fox Family Potato Chips made in Aroostook County where I’m from and wild blueberry pie full of anti-oxidants, see this was a healthy lunch as well. We did have a little ice cream on the pie too, also made in Maine, Gifford’s Ice Cream. So in all seriousness this was well received,” Collins told reporters on Thursday after the meeting at the Capitol.

    “Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting.

    “He looked longingly at it,” Collins continued. “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over so, but he did look longingly at it and he remarked that we have far better food than the Democrats do, and I said that was because I was hosting.”

    According to a 2009 AFP report, the U.S. Secret Service has “always refused to confirm that US presidents travel with a food ‘taster’, in line with their policy of discretion on all security related issues.””

    So then the questions become:

    Why wasn’t his “taster” there?

    WHO is his “taster” and what kind of hazard pay does that person get?

    Whom does the “taster” work for?

    Did other presidents use “tasters”?

    If not, then why does Obama?

    Do We the People pay for this?

    • What about those photos of him having lunch with Putin at some diner? Does the taster accompany him on his luncheons outside the WH? What about tasting those ice cream cones? Kings always have tasters…and how much are they paid for this hazardous job? I wonder if they are covered by Obamacare too. Does the taster sit by him at government functions or how does the taster operate – put his fork in it and wait to see if he is affected? Then is the food reheated? Is the taster in the kitchen overseeing each portion? When BHO goes overseas to visit, how does the taster get to their kitchens to taste the food before it is served? How about the liquor he drinks, is that tasted too? The taster must be by his side all the time if you think about it.

      It was a meal from Republicans so of course BHO’s paranoia kicked in. I hope his stomach was churning from sitting there like a lump and not eating. He probably left early so he could get food from his chef’s kitchen at our WH. Is the taster on staff? Does he watch over the kitchen staff and the cooking of the food?

      It is even funnier that this was reported by Collins. Ridicule this episode to high heaven! It is almost as funny as the Mutt eating a dog.

      • If they had refused to eat at the dinner he gave for them, everybody, including the media, especially the media, would be screaming about what a rude insult that was to Barry.

      • Hitler’s tasters were FORCED, not paid. Can you imagine the fear every time they put something in their mouth? It could have been poisoned by the SS before it got driven to wherever Hitler was at the time. Has Obama been threatened with poisoning?

        “Ninety-five-year-old Margot Woelk is believed to be the last official food taster for Hitler who is still alive. She now tells the British media that Hitler ate fruit and vegetables, but no meat during the two years she was forced to taste his food before he did, due to threats that the German leader might be poisoned.

        While her husband was fighting on the front lines, Woelk was taken by the SS to “Wolf’s Lair,” Hitler’s World War II headquarters on the Eastern Front (in today’s Poland), where she was required to perform the frightening job along with about another dozen women.

        This is how she described her high-risk work: Between 11 and 12 o’clock, we had to taste the food, and only after all of us had tried it was it driven to the headquarters by the SS. It was all vegetarian, the most delicious fresh things, from asparagus to peppers and peas, served with rice and salads. It was all arranged on one plate, just as it was served to him. There was no meat and I do not remember any fish.

        Of course I was afraid. If it had been poisoned I would not be here today. We were forced to eat it, we had no choice.”

        • I remember reading he and a few others were vegan,not just for two years.

        • There was a plot to put poison in Fidel Castro’s toothpaste. I don’t recall the details.

          • Years ago, wasn’t there a famous case of someone in Britain being poisoned by being stuck with a needle at the end of an umbrella? Speaking of which, it’s almost as if the new Pope has a death wish; he’s out there shaking hands, no plexiglass. I guess the Pope-Mobile is retired permanently. Hope his guardian angel is up to the task.

      • I’d think the concept is outdated because it seems most likely that someone wouldn’t use a poison that acts THAT quickly. Just because the taster tasted it, doesn’t mean it’s safe. Well, maybe they use Geiger counters (if that would work) to protect against another Litvinenko incident.

    • It was Warren G. Harding that many thought died of food poisoning from eating a bad CRAB salad. So, maybe that’s when they started having food tasters. Only trouble is, there are many things that can be slipped into food that someone wouldn’t have a reaction too right away.
      Other leaders in other countries have had food tasters. I do wonder who gets that delicious job.

      • Even that nasty norovirus takes hours to work. Crab salad might be naturally contaminated. I doubt that a food taster would protect anybody from food poisoning (the kind that WE unfortunately get).

  8. This newest painting by McNaughton is so different from the others. Not a whole lot of symbolism. Not a lot of little details to find. It’s almost as if he seems discouraged. Unless I’m missing something. What is the mother holding and what are those objects on the ground, at the little boy’s feet?

    • I just noticed that part of what I posted wasn’t there so I added it. It included the interactive site for the photo and the artist describing his work. I don’t know what happened.

      I agree, it is very different from his others. Yet each person is to represent one of his thoughts or values, the death of someone close to us, and the flag in disarray. I tried to see what those objects were and I didn’t know either. It still represents the sad state of our nation as he has portrayed so well.

      • That helps! The saddest and scariest part is this: our military is compromised. I never thought that could ever happen. Everyone in higher office who’s loyal to the country and constitution instead of solely to Obama is being shoved aside. One can only assume that those who remain are those who agree to go along. Lt. Col. Lakin went to prison. Another Lt. Col. is restored to duty, after being convicted by a jury of his peers of rape. Compare and contrast. It boggles the mind. There is no reprieve for Lt. Col. Lakin. No mercy. Lost pensions. His family’s security and future at risk. All for having the gall to simply question Obama’s right to be his Commander in Chief.

  9. Yes, very Somber… what is there to laugh about… really? Stripped naked & treated like trash daily… just as they planned…. pay back time… & no one will EVER…. stop them…YET! … Bought & paid 4

    The woman could be reading a letter … sent home? or threading a needle to repair the tattered flag …maybe it’s a purple pin cushion & some spools of thread? not sure!

  10. Sheriff Joe’s Lead Obama Investigator Meets With High-Ranking Officials; Promises Made

    “This is what Carl Gallups posted at Facebook earlier today, …”

    “Dear PPSIMMONS family – Please PRAY! Lt. Zullo and I believe we have made some supernatural progress. We have much more work to do, but we have met with several VIPS, one of which has made some deep and sincere promises of powerful action. Our meeting was one that lasted several hours with a VIP that usually gives five minute slots. I cannot share any more details at this point. The subject matter is entirely too sensitive for internet posting.

    Lt. Zullo and I have another meeting in the U.S. Capitol building today with another VIP. Pray for that meeting as well. Your prayers are precious to us and we believe that the Lord may be at work in this trip. God bless you – and keep praying for your nation and our nation’s leaders. It appears there are some who want to do the right thing – they just need some direction. We are trying, with the Lord’s help, to provide that direction and information. ALSO – I plan to be LIVE on Freedom Friday by telephone around 4:05 PM CT today. Get the latest update then! – Carl Gallups.”

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      With the Lord’s help. He’s the only way out of this. I add my prayers.

    • VIP’s were shocked and surprised when they viewed the evidence and listened to Zullo and Gallups? They were shielded from the information! How? With millions writing to their Congressmen and Senators? How were they shielded when they got certified letters? People that work and operate in Washington D.C. are enamored with themselves – no kidding. They are caught up in their own power. “Once they focus, their jaw hits the ground!” Those in power are so bombarded with information that they have to weed out the information, they were told years ago that birthers were tin foil hat wearers (by the Left) and so were dismissed.

      “We have proof, we don’t have a ruling on the proof!”

      • CPAC: Sheriff Joe’s Lead Obama Identity Fraud Investigator Meets With High Ranking Officials

      • I think some of them might be new to Congress. Maybe they missed the letters. Iirc, butterdezillion thought that she or others sent individualized letters to members of both houses of Congress, but they all went to the same place, routed through the same place, were signed for, and weren’t necessarily hand-delivered to individual recipients. They trust so much to their staffs. Not even sure the STAFF read the letters, judging from the off-topic form letters I’ve gotten in return from my so-called representatives. They rely on that CRS, too. We saw how corrupt and off-the-mark THEIR analysis was. My guess is that they are see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil with regard to this topic. They’re terrified of what they believe will happen to their party if THEY’RE the ones to oust the first so-called African-America POtuS. Of course, that’s exactly what Obama and the DemoncRATS counted on, and they push the willing media to make sure that’s the meme. It’s why they demonize “birthers”, to make the Republicans fear what will happen to them and their reputations if they take this seriously. Just look how the “birthers” are once again being tarred and feathered in the media, when they “cover” CPAC. It’s such an insult to African-Americans to believe that they also DON’T CARE if Obama is a fraud. They, more than anyone else, were completely USED and DEFRAUDED. Forevermore, this will be their “first” president. What a legacy. What a shame.

  11. MENDING (OUR) THE NATION …. yes we will!

    • “With God’s help, WE WILL mend this nation.”

      I think that the woman is “mending” the flag and it may be a pin cushion and other sewing implements on the ground next to her.

  12. GORDO … and all of us worker Bee’s…. can this be so….Dang does it get any better than this ? A shift in the WIND!

    OK this is getting serious… yes, God hears your prayers said once..he has good ears… BUT now is the time to say prays for everyone doing Gods work here on Earth.. breath in PRAY ~ breath in PRAY…be Mindfull … please do it even if you don’t (really) believe… thanks!

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Yes. Pray unceasingly! Those who still do not believe with everything unfolding as foretold must never have read the Bible. It’s so precise, if one were not a believer, it would be eerie. BUT, as I always disclaim, now doesn’t have to be THE time written about. As long as the good people of this nation outweigh the bad there is hope. And it’s obvious the Democrats are trying their damndest (literally) to tip the scale in their favor.

  13. SHHHHHH BENGHAZI ….SHH Sen. Graham

    Sen. Graham claims Benghazi survivors ‘told to be quiet’ by administration
    March 15, 2013

    • They change the names of the survivors in the hospital and tell them to be quiet. How do they manage to threaten everyone? Do they tell them they won’t have a job? Threaten their family’s welfare? Is there one major Threat Czar or are their a slew of them paid by the taxpayers? I want to know who is making all of these calls or visits. [Subpoena the survivors or get statements. Give them Whistleblower status. Let’s hear the “chilling stories” and hold those in the WH who have lied and who have not been held accountable feel the wrath of the American people. Expose them and the progressive Marxists agenda!

      “Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an extensive interview with Fox News, alleged that the injured survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been “told to be quiet” and feel they can’t come forward to tell their stories — as he urged the House to subpoena the administration for details if necessary.

      The South Carolina senator said he’s “had contact” with some of the survivors, calling their story “chilling. He told Fox News that “the bottom line is they feel that they can’t come forth, they’ve been told to be quiet.

      The White House is denying any attempt to exert pressure on the surviving victims. [We would expect the WH to fess up?]
      “The best evidence of what happened in Benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in Washington trying to cover their political ass, Graham said. “This is the people who lived through the debacle, and I’m going to do all I can to get them before the Congress and American people.” He continued: “We cannot let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the American people and Congress, people who were there in real time to tell the story.”

    • We could have guessed that one for ourselves, huh?

      If they’re not pressuring anyone, as Jay Carney Barker says, then the answer is simple: Don’t object to them being subpoenaed to testify.

    U.S. Bulking Up Missile Defense Amid N. Korean Threats
    March 15, 2013

    The Pentagon is bulking up its missile-defense capabilities in Alaska as North Korea ramps up its nuclear tests and bellicose rhetoric toward the United States.

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Friday announced plans to deploy an additional 14 ground-based missile interceptors on the West Coast, an increase of nearly 50 percent. Hagel said the move was being made in response to the threats made by North Korea to attack the United States with nuclear weapons and the country’s recent advancements in its missile and nuclear capabilities.

    The 14 new interceptors will be deployed at Fort Greely, Alaska, in addition to 26 already stationed there. There are also four interceptors at Vandenberg Air Base in California.

    The ground-based interceptors are designed to destroy incoming missiles in flight.

    The Pentagon plans to have the interceptors installed by 2017 at a cost of roughly $1 billion, provided testing is successful, DOD officials said. The Pentagon still needs to finish testing for the warheads to successfully intercept missiles before moving forward with the new interceptors. The Obama administration had shelved plans in 2009 to install the 14 additional interceptors that it’s now deploying.

    • North Korea fired two more test missiles this week. Obama says Iran is now one year away from a nuclear bomb. (No problem Barack – still waiting for that fist to be unclenched? Remember the bomb diagram that Bibi presented at the UN! Obama said it was years away, another lie. Now it becomes one year! Know that Israel will strike Iran – Bibi has said so. They have waited and waited and the sanctions aren’t working!]

      Obama’s administration has our soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, then why are new orders going out to reservists?

      In my neighborhood, two army servicemen – one regular army and the other in the reserves – were called up this week. They don’t know where they are going until the orders arrive – orders telling them to get ready to deploy. What are we now responding to? Threats from Iran, North Korea, Libya or Syria? Understandable perhaps for regular army, but reservists?

  18. I haven’t heard of this before.

    Obama the Usurper
    March 05, 2013 SNIP
    Sven Magnussen

    The De Facto Officer Doctrine may not be what some OBOTS believe it to be. The doctrine does legitimize the illegitimate. It indemnifies the governing authority from lawsuits and the chaos that would ensue when all laws, rules, regulations and executive actions were suddenly found to be null and void. For an orderly transition, the De Facto Officer Doctrine transfers authority to act to the usurper for the purpose of maintaining an orderly transition. The usurper must vacate the office until he qualifies and must be held to account for his actions in obtaining the office under false pretenses.

    “The de facto officer doctrine confers validity upon acts performed by a person acting under the color of official title even though it is later discovered that the legality of that person’s appointment or election to office is deficient.” Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425, 440 (1886).

    “The de facto doctrine springs from the fear of the chaos that would result from multiple and repetitious suits challenging every action taken by every official whose claim to office could be open to question, and seeks to protect the public by insuring the orderly functioning of the government despite technical defects in title to office.” 63A Am. Jur. 2d, Public Officers and Employees § 578, pp. 1080-1081 (1984).

    The De Facto Officer Doctrine cannot be used by the governing authority when an objection is lodged against the officer before the effect of the officers actions and the objection is overruled or dismissed. If it is found the objection to the usurper should have been sustained and the officer is removed after the fact, then the De Facto Officer Doctrine cannot be applied.


    • has anyone ever see this? I wonder what year this hearing was ? It’s interesting all the way to the end.

      • Yes, I’ve seen it. It was published on Jul 6, 2012

        “Clinton Eugene Curtis testified under oath, before the Ohio State legislature, that he wrote a program to rig elections. This program would flip the total vote from the real winner to the candidate who had been pre-selected to win by the electronic vote counting machines.”

        I believe we had it on the blog at the time.

        • Guess now that election is over it’s all over the place. I had never seen it. If this had been in media more before election you would think everyone would be willing to go back to old fashion paper ballots. Amazing. I figure ya’ll may have seen it and I’m just not up on it. I can’t help but notice who’s doing the questioning, so maybe that’s why this very public hearing got the veil of silence till now.


        That was my response to this video when kittycat posted it last November. The person who wrote the program is a DemoncRAT. His opponent in an election, he claims, is the person who asked him to write the code. That person was a Republican. However, the program wasn’t used in the election because the county in question didn’t even HAVE voting machines. More about the case here:

    • Interesting stuff. Is this the same Sven who makes claims about Barry having been brought in by Catholic Charities and “fostered” out from CT to HI, WITHOUT PROVIDING ANY EVIDENCE?

      • As for that “doctrine”, I wonder how it applies to the massive number of regulations being rushed through by the illegal usurpers on the NLRB? I’m guessing somebody objected to them immediately.

  19. Trump To CPAC: Build A Great Economy
    March 15, 2013 15 min

    We have to “Build a great economy,” he declared. “We don’t have a great economy now,” and he continued “We have to make American strong again and make America great again.”

    “What’s going on in this country is unbelievable. Our country is a total mess. What we need is leadership. By fixing the economy we are able to solve the problems we really do need to solve—Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. They all become affordable when we become a wealthy country again.”

    Re immigration – 11 Million illegals will vote Democratic. Europeans – educated in the U.S. can’t stay in the US.

    Regarding domestic energy production, Trump said “New technology [has shown] we have tremendous wealth right under our feet.” He declared “We can become so easily the energy capital of the world.”

    “We have to bring money in. We have to take back our jobs from China.”

    • Here’s why they don’t like Trump: He makes too much sense. He has too much common sense. He sees clearly. He sees REALITY. He’s too smart for them. He tells it like it IS.

      It’s horrifying the effect Obama has had on this country already. I was out running errands yesterday. Went to neighborhoods I haven’t been to for a while. MORE AND MORE empty storefronts. More rutted, unrepaired roads. Looks like the third world ALREADY. I was thinking last night about how we used to hear almost daily about new medical breakthroughs. New treatments. New drugs that cure people or help them live decades longer with diseases that once were quickly fatal. When’s the last time you heard news like this? Obama and Obamacare are killing medical research. The WSJ documented how before long, MOST doctors will be nothing more than employees. Unionized, Obama hopes. When they are, they will go home at 5. They will necessarily become less productive because, not owning their own lives and businesses, they will have no incentive to be productive. You WON’T keep your own doctor because if it’s his or her off hours, you’ll be seeing someone else. There was a nurse’s strike recently. What will happen when doctors strike?

  20. Rep. Paul Ryan: ‘President Says We’re In Recovery; I’d Say We’re in Critical Care’
    March 15, 2013

    President Barack Obama’s description of the U.S. economy is flawed. 46 Million people are living in poverty. “The president says we’re in recovery, I’d say we’re in critical care.”

    As reported earlier by, a record 89,304,000 Americans are no longer in the workforce and 296,000 fewer Americans have been employed since January.

    “They are the party of shared hardship. We are the party of equal opportunity.”

    • Paul Ryan To CPAC 2013: The Case For Balance
      March 15, 2013 Snip
      Transcript of speech

      This has been a big week. We got white smoke from the Vatican—and a budget from the Senate. The Senate calls their budget a Foundation for Growth: Restoring the Promise of American Opportunity. Wow, I feel like saluting already. But when you read it, you find the Vatican’s not the only place blowing smoke this week.

      They call their budget a balanced approach. But the thing is—they never balance the budget—ever. In fact, they call for another trillion-dollar tax hike on top of even more spending.
      Work gives people more than a paycheck. It gives them a sense of purpose—a sense of pride. It makes them a part of their community. It gives them the dignity we all deserve. We can’t forget this essential fact.

    • Paul Ryan gave a great speech tonight at the Presidential Banquet at CPAC.

  21. All those seniors who voted for Obama (and those who didn’t) are going to be thrilled with this new information. Remember the concern that Obamacare wanted insurance companies out of business. This is one of the steps. REPEAL this monstrosity that is full of surprises and shows few benefits or reductions in health care costs, if any!

    Obama Administration Plans to Cut Medicare Advantage Reimbursements
    March 14, 2013

    ( – The Obama administration is planning new cuts to Medicare, a federal regulatory filing reveals, cuts that could mean higher premiums or seniors losing their coverage altogether.

    The new cuts come in the form of a planned reduction in the reimbursement rates the government pays to insurance companies that operate Medicare Advantage plans, which are services administered by private for-profit or non-profit providers that offer additional services than can be found in traditional Medicare.

    In a Feb. 15 regulatory filing, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the surprised rate cuts of 2.3 percent – meaning it would pay health care providers 2.3 percent less for providing services to patients.
    The Obama administration already plans to cut the Medicare Advantage program by $200 billion as part of Obamacare. However, the proposed reductions it announced in February are new, and will cut the program in addition to the planned $200 billion in Obamacare cuts, most of which are delayed in 2014.

    • Of course. You know why? He hates Medicare Advantage because people had a CHOICE to be in it AND because it’s “not fair,” in his warped mind, that others can’t make the same choice because they don’t have the means. Those who can’t choose Medicare Advantage must be in the regular Medicare program or Medicaid, so Obama thinks that he MUST FORCE everyone into the same system. It’s not FAIR that people with the means can BUY better care. In fact, his system makes sure that those better-off people are taxed so that they can have their money redistributed, so that people on the dole have BETTER care than those who pay premiums. This is true. See what Medicare does NOT cover and compare to the benefits that totally indigent people get via other programs, and totally for free.

  22. Senators rally to reinstate military tuition assistance after sequester cut
    14 Mar 2013 Snip

    Senators are pushing to reinstate tuition assistance for members of the U.S. military, decrying a move by the administration to suspend the program citing the sequester. “The president wants Americans to feel the pain of the arbitrary across-the-board budget cuts from sequestration, but to cut off promised education assistance for our service members when there are other lower priority spending programs to draw from is an injustice,” Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a statement.

    He and Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina introduced an amendment Wednesday to a stopgap budget bill that would restore the program. Inhofe told Fox News he has additional Democratic support lined up, and warned that dropping the program not only hurts service members — it could hurt the military as a whole. [INTENTIONAL!]

    “It would hurt retention and our ability to enlist these people,” he said.

    • More assault and pain for our military service members by Obama. No wonder he needs a taster. What are the benefits of service to our country? Low pay, days and months away from family, threats of death from our enemies – and what do we give them in return? Obama the Anti-American wussy , pansy-a@#. He and his fellow travelers deserve all they get in the fiery depths of hell and then some. We apologize to all those in the service that your CIC was selected and reigns over you and your future and is trying to dismantle our powerful military. God Bless our troops!

  23. Top 10 Things to Say to an Obama Voter Who Just Got Laid-Off…
    Reaganite Republican – 16 March 2013

    1. “Hey, at least that successful Mormon businessman didn’t win.”
    2. “Didn’t your lady parts warn you this would happen?”
    3. “Look at the bright side- gay marriage passed in four states.”
    4. “Hey, Big Bird still has a job. Isn’t that the important thing?”
    5. “I am sure Obama cares deeply about your situation. Maybe he’ll send you a postcard from Hawaii.”
    6. “Would it make you feel better to know that Rush Limbaugh’s getting a massive tax increase?”
    7. “Now you’ll have more time to play with your unicorn.”
    8. “Isn’t it worth losing your job to know that religious organizations now have to pay for abortions and contraceptives?”
    9. “Well, now you and Keith Olbermann have something else in common.”
    10. “Forward!”

  24. Press release: Attorney Taitz discusses with former Attorney General of the U.S. Edwin Meese Obama’s use of all forged IDs and a stolen Social Security number and the cover up by the Department of Justice.
    March 15, 2013 Snip

    During the CPAC convention Attorney Orly Taitz was able to discuss the issue of Obama’s forged IDs with former Attorney General of the United States from Reagan Administration Edwin Meese who also has 30 years of experience as an intelligence officer in the U.S. military. (The photograph of Taitz handing documents to Meese was taken by Bailey Hall, Chief of Staff for Congressman Runyon).
    Attorney General Meese listened very attentively, he appeared more alert and attentive than many congressmen and senators, who are half his age. He stated that he will review the documents and will get back.

    • Rosemary Woodhouse

      Edwin Meese. Now that’s impressive. I was wrong about who was going to be selected as Pope and I hope I’ve been wrong about Orly, To hell with being right! Who cares? I just want the country back!

  25. Press release: Taitz talks to 4 congressmen and multiple members of the media during CPAC. Congressmen are stating that the Department of Justice, who supposedly acted on their behalf in Grinols case never forwarded to them any documents, they were clueless.
    March 14, 2013

    Dr. and Attorney Orly Taitz is currently a VIP attendee og CPAC convention. She personally talked to Member of the Judiciary Committee Congressman Loui Gohmert, Senator Jim Inhofe, Congressman Steven King and retired Senator and current president of the Heritage Foundation Jim Demint.

    During the conversation with Congressman Gohmert, Taitz was surrounded by multiple reporters, who took pictures and recorded on video tape the conversation.
    Taitz advised Gohmert that in January Department of Justice appeared before Judge England, stating that they represent the US Congress and on behalf of the US Congress they opposed the injunction of the certification of Obama’s electoral votes. I asked, if he as a US Congressman and member of the Judiciary committee indeed felt that it is proper for Obama to use the SSN that was not assigned to him, whether he indeed directed the US Department of Justice to represent him and oppose the injunction. Gohmert stated in front of all the reporters that he did no know anything about this and that the Department of Justice never gave him any papers.
    Senator Inhofe similarly did not know anything about it.
    As of now the picture is such that the Department of Justice went behind the backs of the U.S Congressmen and never gave them any pleadings or documents and did not act as an attorney for the US Congress, but rather as a private criminal defense attorney for Obama.

  26. CPAC today – Scott Walker, Newt Gingrich, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Ben Carson.

  27. Gov. Scott Walker gave speech at CPAC 2013 – “In America, We believe in the People, Not in the Government”
    3/16/13 Snip

    Walker began by quoting Ronald Reagan by reminding the crowd that the “Federal Government didn’t create the states–the states created the Federal Government and “real reform doesn’t happen in the nation’s capital, it happens in state capitals.” Again using Reagan as an example, Walker explained that tax reform was implemented in California under Governor Reagan before it was implemented by the federal government under President Reagan.

    Conservatives, admonished Walker need to make their argument more relevant. People don’t care about words like fiscal cliff, or sequester, they care about whether their unemployed neighbor down the block finds a job.

    He continued by saying true freedom and prosperity means jobs and independence–his second best applause line.

  28. Ben Carson is speaking now. A standing ovation. Such logic, such common sense. He retires in 106 days. He is quitting while at the top of his game, he said. He is very dedicated to education for the next generation.

    He gave a great analogy of being magically transported into the WH, and everyone applauded. Then he said, and if I were in the WH with plans to destroy America, these are the things I would do. Then he went on to mention all of the things that Obama has done to the economy, military etc., to undermine the US.

    The video should be out later in the day.

  29. Sarah Palin was supposed to be speaking and Ted Cruz came out when she was introduced. He said that Sarah drives the MSM bat crap crazy! He says he wouldn’t be in his position today if it weren’t for Sarah.

    Regarding background checks for gun toting people, hey Obama, we should have started with yours! (paraphrased, but what she said was similar). It was great.

  30. TEA Party Power Hour – Mark Gillar
    March 16, 2013

    “Expert Predicts Prison Time For Those Who’ve Helped Obama”

    “Doug Vogt, a typesetter with over thirty years of experience. gives us a very detailed review of the telltale signs of forgery in Obama’s birth certificate.

    Vogt also takes us through the United States’ treason laws that he predicts will land many of those who’ve aided and abetted Obama in jail.”

    • For some reason, there was no audio. I tried using other media, but it didn’t work. I looked for it earlier today on You Tube and didn’t find it.

    • Wow. He cites the law on misprision of TREASON, which includes aiding an act that puts at risk the national security of the USA (duh!) and that costs someone their life (too many to count). But then he talks about 12 people who (allegedly) died to cover up Obama’s gay past and then he talks about people in Kenya who died (allegedly) because of what they knew about his birth, focusing on a church that was burned and 40 died. He seems to say that this is a missionary church where people knew the truth of Barry’s birth. I’m thinking it’s the one that burned after Obama’s cousin Raila Odinga lost the election. Was there another motive besides anti-Christian animosity harbored by muslims? What do we know about that church (other than it burned down)?

      Vogt said that the crime of forgery is a “clear cut case of high treason” on account of the consequences that ensued. He’s explained this to obots and many freaked and disappeared, because in their enthusiasm for Barry, they failed to realize what they were doing. They figured that people ought to know who and what Barry was and he was elected anyway, so no harm. But when they forged the documents, they committed treason, in his opinion. Obots seemed to think it was simply a game, not a crime. (My paraphrase.)

      • Miri, you finish with a very profound, insightful thought that actually explains a lot and is right on the mark, “Obots seemed to think it was simply a game, not a crime.”

        • That wasn’t my thought, but I concur with it. Mr. Vogt says this. I’m still listening to that long audio. After he talks about treason, he basically begins a list of 25 things that prove the forgery. For example, he says there’s no way (bunch of technical stuff follows) that they used a microfilm to create the pdf. They didn’t scan any microfilm or document (as they tried to imply by having that curved edge on the left). He knows from other technical facts that they created that pdf from scratch by copying from another digital image that can only have been given to them by someone in the HDOH.

          • Mr. Vogt doesn’t think it’s necessarily a young person and he thinks he’s made the connection as to how she knew Barry IN HAWAII. So we can infer that this is someone perhaps near his age. He believes there’s only one person who physically did the forgery, but a whole lot of people are “principals” in this conspiracy. He says they didn’t understand what they were doing because they are “incredibly stupid” (to allow themselves to be sucked into this, I suppose he’s saying).

            Would someone Barry’s age be familiar with typewriters? imho, maybe. When did people start using computers or word processors for school work? I was still using a typewriter in the mid-80s. However, if she knew Barry through his mother or his sister, she may not have to be someone close to his age.

            Vogt thinks he sees evidence that the horizontal spacing is off on some lines because the person used a computer screen while photoshopping that was not wide enough to display the entire document at one time. This happens with a computer, but not a typewriter. We know about the different type faces used for multiple letters, which is totally, totally IMPOSSIBLE with a typewriter. You can have that with a computer, but not with a typewriter.

            Whoa. He says that there’s one letter that “bound” Obama and the forger because this one letter is the same on both birth certificates. So this implies that the forger put out her own birth certificate (I’m assuming it’s also a forgery) and used the same distinctive letter, which gave her away. Hmmm. He said earlier that a lot of the birth certificates that share anomalous certificate numbers were forged and put out into cyberspace to confuse the issue of his birth certificate number being so “off”.

            They had to create words for the forgery and all letters in these words have differing “baselines”, indicating that the words were not typed on any typewriter but were assembled to form words.

            There’s a rotated letter e in the word male. He says they all know why–forger, himself, and the police departments! But he doesn’t explain this odd statement.

            They have the wrong age for Barry’s father. BHO Sr. started lying about his age to get into Harvard because he was too old to meet their requirements. We know this from this immigration records. He didn’t start lying about his age until 2 years after Barry was born, when he decided to go to Harvard as a foreign student. Vogt points out that at no point in the documentation we’ve seen does BHO Sr. EVER take credit for being Barry’s father.

            He says the FBI, the forger, himself, and the police know why there are anomalies in the registrar’s stamp. He won’t explain why, but my guess is what we’ve said before: it’s to prevent actually committing a crime. If the stamp is obviously bogus then it’s not a technical counterfeit, because it’s obviously counterfeit. That’s my guess and was from the beginning. We’ll see, in time, I hope.

            Gillar says, with regard to the word African, that it didn’t matter what the person “self-identified as” because the person making up the birth certificate had to default to NEGRO, according to the coding standards.

            • Something new, at least to me: There are different dots per square inch in the boxes on the form, which is impossible on the same scanned form.

              He also slips and says the forgery was “done by a foreign agent.” Later, it seems he’s calling Barry the foreign agent. He’s writing a book but he doesn’t know if it will be published. (He could self-publish.) He hopes WND will publish it.

              They also talk about this story:

          • Miri, I’ll tell you who keeps typewriters on hand still…or at least many do…..People who are writers by profession. At least some do…..and of course people who are regular “forgerers” keep typewriters around too…you know the Bernardine Dhorn and Bill A.types. Course I also think of the Nordyke lady who had her twins certificates , she also was a writer. Just a thought.

            • That’s a good point. People who were used to writing on typewriters sometimes still do. Actually, I have my old typewriter, although I much prefer a computer keyboard! (It’s easy to correct my numerous typos, if I catch them.)

              Vogt’s theory, though, is that this is someone who is NOT familiar with how a typewriter worked and so wasn’t careful enough with the spacing and didn’t know the fact that there were NOT different fonts on typewriters. (Except that those old IBM Selectrics did have different type balls with different fonts. But someone would have to consciously and deliberately, in the middle of making the document, change out the balls. Maybe even in the middle of a word! Nobody would do that.)

              If it’s someone who knew him in Hawaii, then wouldn’t that probably be someone who knew him or his family when he was at Punahou? Or maybe someone who knew his “mother” when she was at the East-West Center finishing her degree? Or perhaps knew him through FMD? There’s not just Nordyke. There’s also Babs Nelson. Remember her? And Alice Dewey. Didn’t one of the white girlfriends also meet up with him there? Seems I remember that.

              He probably knew lots of women. I’m guessing this is someone with a connection to the HDOH in particular. Who was that other woman at the HDOH? Not Fukino. The other one. I forget her name already. Am I dreaming? Was there a Health Dept. Director before Fuddy?

          • 03/03/2011

            “Governor Neil Abercrombie yesterday appointed Loretta Fuddy as the state’s new Director of the Department of Health. Fuddy fills the vacancy created by the resignation of previous gubernatorial nominee Neal Palafox.”


          • 01/29/2011

            “In a separate development, it is now confirmed Dr. Neal Palafox did not withdraw his nomination as the new director of Hawaii’s Department of Health, as was initially reported from Hawaii.

            Instead, the governor’s staff has now revealed that Gov. Neil Abercrombie asked Palafox to withdraw.

            “While the governor’s staff would not discuss the reasons or circumstances surrounding the sudden departure, Donalyn Dela Cruz, the governor’s spokeswoman, confirmed last night that it was the governor and not Palafox who asked for the withdrawal,” Derrick DePledge reported in the Honolulu Star Advertiser Friday.”


            “Hawaii’s Senate minority leader is accusing Gov. Neil Abercrombie of politicizing the state’s health department by firing his nominee to replace Chiyome Fukino, a woman best known to the nation as Barack Obama’s birth certificate guardian.

            “Palafox was determined to clean up the Hawaii Department of Health and he ran afoul of politics when the people he fired sought retribution,” Slom told WND.

            The latest development comes as well-connected sources in Hawaii are warning that certain government officials in the state have been contemplating releasing fraudulent birth records for Obama in the run-up to the 2012 election.”


            • TY, Gordo. I remember about Palafox now. He replaced Fukino and Fuddy replaced Palafox. Still, seems to me that there was another woman involved early on with this birth record issue. She had an Asian name, too.

          • “Bombshell: Hawaii Official, Janice Okubo’s birth certificate used to forge Obama’s COLB, Amended Obama’s Records, Got Politifact!?”

            “The plot thickens! Dr. Ron Polland is reporting that Obama’s COLB was forged using Hawaii Communications Officer, Janice Okubo’s, 2007 issued COLB. Dr. Polland names 4 other people, among the many, complicit in this long known fraud and cover-up, including Hawaii Governor, Linda Lingle, and, Politifact Reporter, Amy Hollyfield. Can’t forget Factcheck!”


            Uploaded on Jun 25, 2010

            • The part about Okubo starts at 6:55, with the theory about her SFCOLB being used for Barry’s is at 8:00. I have some questions:

              When did Obama OR the HDOH allegedly release ANY SFCOLB with his mother’s birth place and his father’s birth place on it? Did Dr. P CREATE that image he’s showing with “Kansas” and “Africa” on it? It doesn’t help that he creates fake documents himself. The SFCOLB that was released by Obama’s campaign had no place of birth for the parents. I understand his argument about them modifying his birth records, possibly, under the excuse that it was for his protection because there’s a loophole, seemingly, in their laws that allow for that to happen. I expect that that would require the involvement of a judge to seal the original records. Would any judge go out on that limb? In Hawaii, it’s possible. Because this is from 2010 and we’ve learned more since, some of his theories may have morphed by now.

              One thing that’s interesting, though: If her name IS Janice Sachiko Okubo, then her name has exactly the same number of letters as Barry’s. Odd coincidence. Some of the letters are the same, too.

              Dr. P shows an image of a SFCOLB that says Janice Sachiko Okubo on it. Did he create that image, too? For illustration purposes? How does he know her middle name? Did she ever release that SFCOLB to the public? If not, then how could she be the person Vogt talks about? He says that one of the letters on the forger’s own BC matches Obama’s forgery, indicating a common source.

    • Vogt’s theory about Savannah’s involvement in providing that provenance for the LFCOLB involves GE Capital, its connection to NBC and MSNBC, and payback for the big favor Barry did for them by changing rules to allow them to be bailed out of a bunch of bad, bad mortgages. She also got a promotion right after doing this favor for Barry. He says she has made herself a principal in this criminal case, as have any executives at the network who knew about this. That’s his “interpretation.” He says the reason no seal appeared on the copies handed to the media is because the scanner uses green light, which washed out the green background. But the seal was part of the PAPER itself, as an embossment, and so it should not have disappeared because it wasn’t PRINTED on the paper. Therefore, there wasn’t any on the paper that Guthrie felt. (However, I’m of the opinion that they might have had an embosser that they used to emboss a printout from the pdf; it’s possible she was duped.)

  31. Ted Cruz at CPAC – listening to him, you can tell from his speech that he is setting himself up to run for president in 2016. He has talked about different amendments citing examples of how the Obama administration and the Left and Congress have put laws into effect that are unconstitutional. He wants us to get back to working within constitutional limits. For all of the constitutional knowledge he has, he thinks he can run for president when he is not an NBC!?

  32. News from CPAC – Winners of the Straw Poll at CPAC

    Rand Paul and Marco Rubio tied for First place, but I am seeing headlines that Paul won, yet that isn’t what the moderator said. He did show a chart that showed about 25% vs 23%. There were 23 nominees listed with 44 write-ins. So they voted for one out of 67 candidates. Of the 44, no one got more than 1%. Judge Napolitano was mentioned in the 44. After Paul and Rubio was Rick Santorum with 8% and Chris Christie with 7% (a darling of the left!) Ben Carson was also mentioned and was in 7th place.

    Also in June or July, One America News will go on Cable as a Conservative Media channel. They will work in conjunction with the Washington Times catering to conservatives. They are vowing to report what the liberal MSM doesn’t report. They asked that people contact their TV subscribers (i.e., Times Warner, Comcast, Verizon) so they will be able to broadcast. He said it would be an upward climb because of those in power who have an ideological – read liberal – bent. (Glenn Beck was having people contact networks and the same companies to get his network live and running on something besides Dish network.).

    “’s CPAC panel “The Uninvited” was intended to stoke controversy, both within the wider political culture and within CPAC itself, given that its panel consisted entirely of speakers excluded from the conference. But probably no one expected the “Uninvited” panel to “un-invite” one of their own audience members — namely, famous Obama birth certificate conspiracy theorist Orly Taitz.”

      The panel, which concluded with statements from famous anti-Islam firebrands Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer, had already strayed into territory that the organizers of CPAC would have found uncomfortable, such as the disputed theory that American Conservative Union board members Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan have consciously aided Islamist elements.

      “I don’t know Grover Norquist personally. I met him once. I met Suhail Khan twice. I don’t know these guys. What I do know is that they’re completely in bed with the same people Barack Obama is listening to to draft the Muslim Brotherhood-positive foreign policy of the United States, and domestic policy as well,” Spencer argued in the panel, drawing applause.

      Then, when the Q&A opened, Taitz stood up and began an impromptu speech of her own, demanding to know why the panel hadn’t tackled the issue of the president’s birth certificate, and advancing arguments common within the so-called “birther” community. Gellar didn’t directly tackle the issue of birtherism, but did snap at Taitz for her presumption. “I think there’s enough substance on this panel, I mean how many topics can you handle?” Gellar asked. “Inappropriate, really.”

      Taitz, however, wasn’t interested in what Geller had to say. She wanted to nail Breitbart executive chairman Stephen Bannon to the wall, and asked him aggressively why he and his site hadn’t touched the issue. Bannon responded citing the late Andrew Breitbart’s own feelings on the issue, before Taitz interrupted him.

      “You don’t talk for someone who is dead!” Taitz demanded.

      “We are not a birther site,” Bannon said.

      “That shows that you have no integrity,” Taitz shrieked, before the audience booed her down.

      • I’m disappointed in Pam Geller, who, btw, was one of the original “birthers”. She was birther before birther was cool. What’s the deal now? I didn’t hear her “snap” at Orly, in that video. I couldn’t actually understand what most of them were saying. I get that they’ve moved on and that they believe that their issues are more substantial. Maybe they are, but a HUGE problem could be solved if it were only exposed that the TRUTH is that Obama is INELIGIBLE to even be president. Without that presidency, the harm he’s done to this country would not have happened and further harm would be prevented IF he were to be removed from office on account of his ineligibility from the get go. Maybe Geller has given up on this fight, but we who DO CARE about the TRUTH think that ALL TRUTH is equally important. TRUTH IS TRUTH. For Bannon to use the term “birther” in a derogatory way tells us where his head is at. Andrew Breitbart was apparently considering coming on board when he suddenly and inexplicably died. That alone might explain some of their reticence. Orly has guts–you have to give her that.

        You know, it occurs to me that Glenn Beck, whom I admire in most other respects, MAY be influenced by his church. The Mormons have done that genealogy for Barry. They made a big show of presenting it to him. Could it be that Glenn can’t accept or even consider that perhaps there’s corruption there, in that “genealogy” part of the Mormon Church? There’s a “usual suspect” in that group, too. Anastasia is her name, iirc. Obama apologists. For whatever reason. Otherwise, I admire and thank the Mormons for all they’ve done for amateur (and professional) genealogists. I’m just sayin’.
