Mother’s Day Open Thread

Flowers_for_Mother - Copy

From the poem “Mother” by Madison Julius Cawein

Oh, just to see her face again
A-smiling at the windowpane!
To see her standing at the door
And offering her arms once more,
As oft she did when, just a child,
She took me to her heart and smiled,
And hushed my cry and cured my pain
I’m going home to her again.

Happy Mother’s Day to all from WTPOTUS.

    “Official: Attorneys Move To Strike Alabama Democratic Party’s Amicus Brief With Third Obama Birth Certificate; Includes The Official Affidavit From Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Lead Obama ID Fraud Investigator Mike Zullo;”

    EXCERPT:

    “The Alabama Democratic Party had failed to take any action in this matter until now, despite the fact that this litigation has been ongoing and there have been ample opportunities to provide additional information to this Court. Rather , for the first time in this litigation, the Alabama Democratic Party is attempting to present so called evidence it claims supports President Obama’s eligibility to be President.

    Specifically, it is now seeking to introduce a barely legible copy of a Honolulu newspaper from 1961, which allegedly announces the birth of President Obama, in addition to offering other documents, including a purported “new” version of a birth certificate (the third version offered in various litigation around the nation), regarding President Obama’s citizenship and the validity of his birth certificate.”…

  2. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/05/breaking-holder-justice-department-also-tapped-house-of-representatives-cloak-room/ This is apparently a real “separation of powers” issue, now, because they “tapped” the House cloakroom:

    Oh My… Breaking: Holder Justice Department Also Tapped House of Representatives Cloak Room

    Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) went on the Hugh Hewitt Show tonight and dropped this bombshell. The Holder-Obama Justice Department tapped the House of Representatives Cloak Room.

    [Nunes said:] … “I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

    So when they went after the AP reporters, right? Went after all of their phone records, they went after the phone records, including right up here in the House Gallery, right up from where I’m sitting right now. So you have a real separation of powers issue that did this really rise to the level that you would have to get phone records that would, that would most likely include members of Congress, because as you know…”

    [Gateway Pundit wrote:] The cloakrooms serve as a place for members to socialize, eat, and take naps without leaving the building. These rooms are closed to all except for Senators and Representatives, and a few of their trusted staffers, and even have their own phone numbers.”

  3. btw, I heard on TV that various Tea Party groups are preparing lawsuits against the IRS AND state and local law enforcement may open investigations into these potential crimes, too.

    I suspect that the 9/12 projects were a main focus of these IRS thugs. Beck was rivaling Soros and they couldn’t have that.

    • h/t Gateway Pundit:

    • I sure do hope that they sue. Can you imagine a huge class-action lawsuit throughout the US? Now that would be interesting.

      • Jay Sekulo apparently warned the IRS to approve all the outstanding applications by tomorrow or face lawsuits. Believe it or not, Holder actually implied that these actions against Tea Partiers were violations of “civil rights”. I thought white people had none, in his opinion. Guess he knows when his own power is at risk. He’s skated before and will probably skate again. After all, who could EVER believe he would be fired? Never will happen because he KNOWS all truths. Doesn’t he?

  4. I am thinking the now, while all the world is paying attention, is the time for the choir director’s mom to come back and take center stage. Or at least start circulating her in youtubes and mark it as the “5th shoe to drop” (or 6th or 7th or 8th or whatever number it is.)

    Also, has the previous IRS top honcho that was replaced with the acting head guy that is leaving shown up dead yet?

    • Still with us and allegedly supposed to speak with the House investigators, along with Miller. As usual, so many conflicting stories. One I read today said that Shulman and Miller learned about the same time–right as Shulman was LEAVING the IRS. That story said that when Shulman spoke to Congress, he did NOT know about it AT THAT TIME. He learned later, when Miller did. But Miller did go on to write letters back to Congress members who questioned the activity and both times he carefully parsed the responses and LEFT OUT what he knew–which was that the IRS DID target and delay the applications of Tea Party, patriot, and 9/12 groups. He pretended that they were overwhelmed with applications but following usual procedures and that they had “consolidated” the applications in one office for efficiency’s sake. This is the SPIN and the narrative that that IRS spokesperson used last week. So it was probably originated higher up, like TALKING POINTS. I wonder exactly WHAT ROLE these revelations played in Shulman leaving the IRS. Did he leave because he learned about this and did not want to be the one to go under the bus? Get out while the getting’s good? Read the writing on the wall and didn’t want to stay around to be the fall guy, in case? He was only appointed in 2008 by GWB, which is something the obots and lamestream keep stressing; but GWB KNEW he himself was leaving, so why worry about having “his” guy in the job? What are Shulman’s politics? Was he appointed because previously he was a career employee in line for promotion and GWB, being the nonpartisan guy he liked to make a show of being, was trying to be magnanimous? These all need to be answered. Miller had no skin in the game because he was leaving anyway, but now that everybody’s making noise (even HOLDER) about criminal investigations and possible charges, one wonders if Miller’s going to stick his neck out and cover for whoever it was who directed him?

      • Miri, your last line is what I was thinking about this morning after watching the news. It’s one thing to make a show of “firing” someone to take the heat off (you can always pay them off or something, right?) but if someone’s threatened with jail you have to think they will NOT take the fall on their own.

  5. “Chris Matthews sours on Obama”

    “(Politico) President Obama “obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch,” Chris Matthews said tonight.

    Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a “thrill going up my leg” after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight’s episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News.”

    Unbelievable! I guess we have our answer. They believe themselves to be untouchable and invincible. Something very, very powerful is propping them up. On the other hand, perhaps something WILL be done. This is THE decisive moment for this nation. If, amid all the overwhelming scandal dump, nothing is done to stop their invincibility by our ineffectual congress, then they truly ARE “all in it, together”. Play Taps. Officially. It’s will be over.

    • RW, my radar is hitting on that story about the Saudi guy who tried to come here with a pressure cooker in his luggage, with the alleged LEAK (that has them so upset) about the Yemeni plot to blow up planes over America (foiled by a “double agent” who supplied the materiel and who worked for a FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE AGENCY), and these guys in Boston who just happened to be standing at “ground zero” with a SAUDI student who is connected to the royal family of SAUDI ARABIA. What upset them SO MUCH about the leak? Was it to protect OUR people or somebody else’s people? OUR national security or somebody else’s? Or, worse, to protect potential false flags from being discovered or prevent them from being realized?

  7. Hi everyone,
    We didn’t have a tornado hit us. Just a bad storm. However, a few miles away, I think there was a small one. Those poor people in Granbury got hit pretty hard. That’s where there are some fatalities.

    Thomas Lifson:

    “The Mainstream Media Obama Psychodrama”

    “Do not underestimate the psychological shock currently being processed by many members of the mainstream media and the low-to-medium information voters who rely on them for political analysis. To them, the election and re-election of Barack Obama, the first African American to hold the office of President of the United States, was a cause, a fulfillment of heartfelt dreams.

    With his Ivy League pedigree and ability to deliver a speech, Obama charmed the liberal media folk into believing that he was the one they had been waiting for, an inspiring black man on a white horse who could heal our lingering racial wounds, if only given the chance. …

    If enough members of the media see the light and join in the discovery of all the deceptions proffered over the last few years, we may see the partisan divide actually diminish, as common revulsion at the dishonesty and abuses brings people together. In a way that he never anticipated, Barack Obama finally may become what he promised to be: a uniter not a divider.”
