Today marks the Vernal Equinox of 2013. Something to celebrate!

From Latin, the word equinox means “equal night”.  This is the day of the year upon which the length of night equals the length of day.  From now until the Summer  Solstice, days will get longer and longer.  In layman’s terms, it’s officially SPRINGTIME in the USA.  Hoorah!

Temperatures in some states remain below freezing, snow has fallen, and a new “winter” storm may be on its way (despite “global warming”).

Nevertheless, birds small and large are singing, hoping to attract a sweetheart and start a new family!

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
      Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!
The palm and may make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:
      Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!
The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,
In every street these tunes our ears do greet:
      Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!

Happy Spring!  Let not your hearts be troubled.

  3. TEA Party Power Hour – Mark Gillar

    March 23, 2013

    “Harlem Pastor Says FOX News Knows Obama Is A Fraud”

    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/markgillar/2013/03/23/harlem-pastor-says-fox-news-knows-obamas-a-fraud

    • This was a good interview. Thanks for posting Gordo!

    • From the video of the broadcast:

      Mark Gillar, TEA Party Power Hour, broke the story about FOX News Reporter Jana Winter Refusing To Retract her False Obama Birth Certificate Report. Jean Claude Tremblay was the one misquoted. He tried repeatedly to get the information she reported retracted.

      Also a person from FOX News went to Arpaio to say that he/she was sorry but that they had tried to get FOX to cover the information and evidence of the Posse, but FOX refused. The person apologized for the network. [FOX complicit in the cover-up.]

      9:25 Mark Gillar – Retired Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, a terrorism expert, was brought in right after 9/11 to FOX. He was there for 6 yrs at FOX news and he also has lots of connections up on on the Hill. Here are the two things he told me when he was on the show.
      Transcribed…

      10:03 He said that all the Congressmen know that Obama ‘s documentation is fake. I think that is a reference to the birth certificate and the Social Security card, and I might add that the Selective Service Card is even more fake than the birth certificate, if you have had a chance to look at that.

      Now he said that FOX news at one point was told by Barack Obama’s people, “If you do not drop this birth certificate thing, if you do not STOP calling Barack Obama, Barry Soetoro, we will come at you with everything we have; the IRS, the Federal Trade Commission. We might just decide that you have got a monopoly in cable news. We will come at you with the FCC. We will come at you with everything we have. We will use the FCC to yank your broadcast license, and we will worry about the consequences later.”

      So that is what Maj.Gen. Valleley said about FOX.

      Now about Congress, he said, that individual Congressmen have said that they were told, “If you try going after Barack Obama, for these multiple counts of document fraud, we are going to see race riots from New York to California. If you think what happened when Rodney King was big, wait till you see what black folks do when Barack Obama is being charged with something.”

      So let me ask you as a leader in the African American community, Pastor Manning, (I found that to be an insult to African Americans everywhere, to assume that they would riot because of this). So you tell me, is there any chance that African Americans would riot over something like this?

      Pastor Manning:
      Absolutely not. Absolutely not.

      *********
      Dr. Manning is planning to travel to Hawaii this year. Manning plans to file motions in the Hawaiian courts charging the Kapi‘olani Hospital with misinforming the American people, and he plans to charge the State Department in Hawaii, the State of Hawaii, with covering up and being complicit in an obvious fraud, a criminal activity. For they know they have information and are hiding information or they are condoning information that has been publicly made a part of fraud.

      He plans to do a couple other things, naming Bill O’Reilly at FOX News, in a suit as well. He is working on the appropriate way using Hawaiian law on how to make that charge a court action, and he will try to get somebody from the State Department to appear in court in Hawaii. He hasn’t settled on a date yet.

        Jerome Corsi:

        “Fox News expert denies he claimed birth certificate legit”

        “The computer graphics expert Fox News relied upon to claim the birth certificate the White House released April 27 was legitimate insists that the network must retract the story, claiming it deliberately misquoted him and continues to ignore his repeated requests.

        Jean Claude Tremblay told WND that none of his comments would permit the conclusion that the Obama birth certificate is an authentic document.

        “I no longer trust Fox News,” he said, expressing anger verging on disdain for the way he feels the network treated him. “Despite my protests, Fox News will not allow me to correct their story.”

        The controversy traces to a Web story by Fox News reporter Jana Winter two days after the White House released the birth certificate, titled “Expert: No Doubt Obama’s Birth Certificate is Legit.”

        Noting that Obama doubters were claiming the birth certificate was a fake, Winter wrote, “But a leading software expert says there’s no doubt about its authenticity, and he dismisses claims of fraud as flat-out wrong.”

        “I never said that,” Tremblay insists. “Winter called me and talked to me for about five minutes on the telephone, and she never said she was going to quote me. Then she misrepresented what I said.””

  4. Rosemary Woodhouse

    I saw the most interesting thing today. Very heartening. A rather large group of teens were dragging a very large crucifix on the sidewalk of a well trafficed road. It seemed that when the one carrying the cross tire they all stopped and began to pray over him. It was deeply moving. Too bad I was driving.

  6. DHS prevaricates. Bullets? What bullets?

    DHS Denies Massive Ammunition Purchase

    The Department of Homeland Security responded Friday to questions from Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., about why the agency was allegedly planning to buy some 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years.

    DHS told Whispers it regularly fills all of its goods and services requirements at one time because it’s cheaper for the agency, and that the 1.6 billion number was misleading because the language of DHS’s purchase said it would need “up to” a certain amount.

    One solicitation by the agency—for training centers and law enforcement personnel—was for “up to” 750 million rounds of training ammunition over the next five years, DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard told Whispers.

    Another five-year contract allows for the purchase of “up to” 450 million rounds of ammunition, he said, and was also for law enforcement. Boogaard noted that the contract would be used by all DHS agencies except the Coast Guard.

    “DHS routinely establishes strategic sourcing contracts that combine the requirements of all its components for commonly purchased goods and services such as ammunition,” a DHS legislative affairs person wrote to Coburn. “These strategic sourcing contracts help leverage the purchasing power of DHS to efficiently procure equipment and supplies at significantly lower costs,” the department told Coburn.”

    DHS Won’t Answer Congress On Billion Bullet Purchase

    Fifteen members of Congress have written a letter to the Department of Homeland Security demanding to know why the federal agency is buying so many rounds of ammunition. We’d like to know too. [WE’D LIKE TO KNOW THE TRUTH, TOO!]

    Freshman California Republican Doug LaMalfa and 14 of his House colleagues, who signed on to his March 5 letter, are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain why it is buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition of various calibers. They aren’t happy with explanations provided so far in the press by lower-level officials, answers meant to debunk “unfounded” concerns.

    Peggy Dixon, spokeswoman for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga., told the Associated Press that the training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.

    The massive purchases are said to be spread out over five years and due simply to the best practice of saving money by buying in bulk what comes down to five rounds of ammo for every man, woman and child on the U.S. That’s a lot of practice and training.

    A good portion of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition are being purchased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government’s second-largest criminal investigative agency. Yes that’s the same ICE that is releasing detained criminal illegal aliens onto our streets because of sequestration cuts.

    Jonathan Lasher, the Social Security Administration’s assistant inspector general for external relations, explained the purchase of 174,000 hollow-point bullets by saying they were for the Social Security inspector general’s office, which has about 295 agents who investigate Social Security fraud and other crimes. …

    However, as former Marine Richard Mason told reporters with WHPTV News in Pennsylvania recently, hollow-point bullets (which make up the majority of the DHS purchases) are not used for training because they are more expensive than standard firing range rounds. [WHICH FACT TOTALLY PROVES THE LIE THAT THEY’RE BUYING THEM FOR TRAINING. THEY MAY INDEED BE BUYING ALL FOR “LAW ENFORCEMENT”, 5 PER CITIZEN OF THE USA.]

    We never trained with hollow points, we didn’t even see hollow points my entire 4-1/2 years in the Marine Corps,” Mason said.

    LaMalfa offers one theory that’s less sinister than some: The federal government is simply trying to corner the market on ammo and restrict what’s available to the American people as part of its gun control efforts. [WHICH SEEMS TO ME LIKE A TOTALLY, TOTALLY IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE–TO WASTE TAXPAYERS MONEY IN A POLITICAL EFFORT TO INFRINGE UPON THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, TO USE TAX MONEY EXTRACTED FROM OUR WALLETS AGAINST US, TO IMPOSE A PARTISAN POLICY ON THE PEOPLE. THEY CONSIDER THAT “LESS SINISTER”? IT’S THUGGISH, DICTATORIAL, AND STRAIGHT UP THEFT.]

    In sum: THEY LIE.

    • Beyond the pale…after all, they don’t have anything else to worry about other than killing or getting killed, or being molested in the showers! Now add the worry of not having ammo!

      U.S. Marines rattled by bullet shortage
      March 26, 2013

      This is ridiculous. The sequester didn’t cut anything, just slowed the growth. It’s amazing how Obama has kept this as a story. Check it out:

      At least one branch of the U.S. military is scrimping and saving every bullet it can while the Department of Homeland Security is on a bullet-buying spree.

      Marine Corps Commandant James F. Amos blames sequester budget cuts for causing the Corps to have to scrimp and save every bullet. In a video to Marines, he says, “I ask you to save every round, every gallon of gas, that you take every single aspect, or opportunity, in training to get the most bang for the buck.” “This is no time to do business as usual. Things have changed. The landscape has changed. I need you to be conservative in the way we do business,” Amos continued.
      ~
      It’s not just the Marines who are struggling to get by. Even local law enforcement agencies are having a tough time finding ammo.

      Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she believes the federal government is building an arsenal to prepare for civil unrest if the country goes bankrupt.

      Retired U.S. Army Captain Terry M. Hestilow has written a letter to Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, warning that “the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America.”

      http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/u-s-marines-rattled-by-bullet-shortage/

      • I am sure that Congress will find out what is going on…they have done so well getting information about Fast and Furious and Benghazi too from the Obama administration! Expected stonewalling and deception will be done by the agencies that are purchasing bullets….I wonder how many bullets have been purchased under the radar by other innocuous agencies. Meanwhile, while our service people have to worry about ammo, the Obama kids are on another vacation spending the taxpayers money. “All to destroy the country, dearie!”

  7. here’s a few new things… # 340..343..346…a second photo…got lips

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2908395/posts?page=302

    • OK, I’m tired of photos that people use to depict a story ,trying to use logic to fill in the blanks, when the photos themselves are obvious fakes. It’s incredible how logic works with false facts assumed to be truths. We go on an assumption of truth when appying logic ,yet we take and fit false info into everything about Obama, his family, his facts, his lies. There just cannot be a worse conundrum.
      in Freerepublic info above….the photo of Barack Sr. and that lady (maybe some past dead missionarey teacher) holding the two children….is a creation. Just look at Baracks giant arms witn his elbow joints arriving at about his pectoral muscle area. Then notice his crotch disappears into his short shirt. His balls would have to be just under his belly button. I think the smudge tool was used in this photo around Barack .The coloring on these children , the darker one doesn’t match Mark AT ALL…he has light yellow to white skin…and as to the second child…anyone could find twenty kids that look just like this. Maybe this is why Mark removed these photos from his site as they prompted too many questions.
      What we should be looking into is why Mark went to Israel a year or two ago….and know who it is he went with as his Guest……the guys name is Norman C. Kaplan, born in Cleveland Ohio…went to Harvard in the physics department…knows the first Chinese Physicist to study at Harvard…learned Mandarin….has jewish roots ….and now is a big favorite business man of China. He has been like the ambassador between China and Israel. That’s who took Mark to Israel. Kaplan has several degrees from various places but he was at Harvard from 1996-98. I mean he’s the major person between China and Israel in negotiating policies. So what was Mark doing in Israel…brushing up on Jewish and Chinese relations and using his business acumen between the two countries. Mark says he talks to Barak but won’t tell any details about it, yet Barack tells us he hardly knows Mark and has only met him briefly. One should look up Norman Kaplan, who now owns a RC cola manufactoring comapany in Shenshen China, has partnered with China’s nationally owned companies. One should take notice of the strange round about ways we seem to be connecting to Israel, from every small (even the Sandy Hook Pozners) way. WHY

      • By the way, I think Mark is impersonating being jewish as it serves his purpose…I do not think his mother is jewish either, but pretends to be. This is not unusual if you study the many ex-weather underground folks…they took on many disciipleships for there causes, it’s a fact…

      • Good eyes, alfy. I’ve seen that photo a hundred times and never noticed the BHO Sr. anomalies. I love how you put it, concerning the location of his Brazil nuts. 🙂 Personally, I never thought that looked like Ruth. Her chin is too short. Look at BHO Sr.’s Bozo the Clown mouth.

    • So what do you gals think of this LindaJAdams story? And the Pope angle? With the Romanovs thrown in for good measure. I thought these people where all executed or do I have the wrong family?

      • imho, she’s a loon.

        • Well, hmm…loon, I don’t know. But (1 t) how would she remember all that? And the Catholic Bookstore with baby B behind counter? Back in the 60’s? Pretty bold to show off a malatto baby that way in a religious book store. On the other hand, why would someone make this up? I never thought SAD was mother, but what do I know?

          • Dar, you be the judge, you do not even have to go to her blog to read this (even though you can if you can by all means), she talks about the Osama Bin Laden insistent also in a post on March 9,13.

            From her LinkedIn profile –

            (T/G I’m sure the SSA had spell check to help this poor woman in her job performance there)

            SSA Rep
            Social Security Administration

            Government Agency; 10,001+ employees; Government Administration industry

            1968 – Present (45 years)

            Transferred to OWCP/ US Dept of labor jurisdiction 10/11/1994. permanent Disability request pending since 1996 on a 1/10/1989 with multiple injures and deaths at the Jersey City Social Security teleservice center, 2 Journal Square Jersey City , N.J. 9TH floor. ( they have since moved) personnel file official housed at SSA regional office, 26 federal plaza NY, NY. ) On 1/9/89 Osama Bin Ladin came in to pick up his w-2, exited a ‘secured stairlwell’ and over the next 24 hours toxic fumes increased and intermingled with other chemicals and gradually more areas of employees were overcome as the ventilation was disconnected. The FBI was denied the right to investigate. OSHAwas lied to initially as all were ordered to have treatment denied at the local hospitals. As the,only one, due to the wrong Employer listed on my admissions chart, i got diagnostic tests run and being nearly dead was being prepared for admission when the mixup on employer was discovered and I was sent home to die as my other co- workers had been. Rushed back to another hospital, admitted and Washington ordered me denied treatment, rushed to hospital again and lay near death for 8 days. Federal workers have no ‘legal right of life’ when corrupt entities flex their muscles. Al Quada has the entire SSA data base because HHS OIG wouldn’t stop the security breach by Delores Bryant who logged 22 new hires that hadn’t gone through required security checks onto a system that had no security in 7/88 as most do know. our system, at that time, could access more personal info on persons than even IRS. he said he was from Saudi Arabia with an American mother and was a citizen with 2 years of CIA employment and introduced himself by is correct name which most of us couldn’t pronounce and he said: CALL ME SAM. When , in the late 90’s it became known he was Terrorist #1, i did my best to stop 9/11 and no one would listen to me or others! he used to stand 10′ from my desk and stare at the world trade center.

            Looooney!! as in – nut’s, ward B type nut’s.

            • She could be really useful to the cause, since she works for SSA: Find the truth about Barry’s CT SS#, Linda. Some FACTS, please. Linked, documented, scanned, copied, any FACTS, please.

              “Call me Sam.” That’s priceless, Leza.

          • Dar,

            Correction to this –

            even though you can if you can by all means

            Correction –

            even though you can if you want to, by all means.

            Sorry about that. I had made a correction to the post before posting and accidentally ended up erasing that part of it, want to. Apologies again.

          • Good lord! insistent =incident, tired…okay dokey, going to bed now 😉

          • IMHO. Trowbridge’s tales? Ditto. Why make this up? Read her entire blog and you will see that it’s not just this issue. Somewhere, it was written that Arpaio dismissed this stuff a long time ago; now somebody’s trying to bring it to his attention again. I don’t care one way or another. If they want to look into it, fine. I am always for keeping an open mind, but the thing is: I don’t want to waste any MORE of my time trying to substantiate wild claims made by people who OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO LINK TO THE EVIDENCE but don’t. That includes Trowbridge, who now also wants us to PAY to read her rambling, unsubstantiated stuff. You really believe that Barry’s related to Rosa Parks AND the Romanovs? I read something else yesterday where Adams claims that she’s the daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Lady Di’s father. Secret daughter from a secret marriage. Yup. I’ll bet that the heir apparent was able to somehow escape her security, come to the USA with Lady Di’s father, get married, and have a baby that she gave up for adoption to the undercover heir of the Romanov family, and NOBODY NOTICED. Not even Winston Churchill. As such, if you believe her, Ms. Adams is the REAL to-be-queen of England.

          • Well, gals maybe she is paid by someone to do this to lend more credence to the whole issue of “birthers being off their rockers”. I found it difficult to read her stuff because she could barely run a complete thought without ruining English Grammar and Spelling. Either delusional or has issues that keep her from expressing thoughts to paper. But saying that Stan Arm Dun is really a pope from a royal family from Russia…well.. I do have some swamp area that is selling like hotcakes in Florida…!

  8. Dar… Not sure why or who this person really is…. BUTT’…. I will
    shop till I drop…as in try to find cracks in the story… What IF!!!!
    WOW…. A end 2 OUR torture… I still DREAM BIG! keep the faith!

    • BUTT you wrote about CRACKS in the story in the same paragraph? Pun intended? Too funny, either way!

    • we have to keep checking all avenues. Wasn’t the posse coming out with something by now or are they under threats? This fraud is becoming the pink elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about and they keep pretending it isn’t there!

    • Yes, keep the faith. That is one thing no one can take away.
