A Musical Interlude for a Monday Morning (Open Thread)

If you want to be happy living a king’s life,

Never make a pretty woman your wife.

If you want to be happy living a king’s life,

Never make a pretty woman your wife.

That’s Calypso Louie’s version (aka Screwy Louie).  Who knew he actually was a Calypso singer?  I’ll bet that vinyl is worth some bucks in certain circles.

Here are some lyrics from Harry Belafonte’s version:

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life,

Never make a pretty woman your wife.

So from my personal point of view,

Get an ugly girl to marry you.

A pretty woman makes her husband look small,

And very often causes his downfall.

As soon as he marries her, then she starts,

To do the things that will break his heart.

But if you make an ugly woman your wife,

You’ll be happy for the rest of your life.

Butt, who took that advice, we wonders, Precious?

Interesting change to the lyrics that Louie made about living a king’s life.

  1. New open thread. Happy Monday, everyone. 😦 Back to the old grindstone. Here’s some snappy music to make you feel just happy, happy, happy.

  2. Happy Monday To you too Miri. 🙂

    • TY, foxy, and thanks for being here!

      Seems Barry sent Lew out on all the shows this weekend, a la Susan Rice, to try to deflate the IRS scandal as “phony”. They’re using the good ole Hillary Clinton ploy: There’s NO EVIDENCE that any politically appointed person was in on the “decision” to do this. So moving the goal posts and obfuscating, as usual. Lew claims there are 1600 lawyers in the IRS CHIEF counsel’s office, so any of them (and not WILKINS who met with the WH at crucial moments in time) could have been the recipients of the cases Carter Hull says he had to send there. Well, let’s hope Lois Lerner gets her immunity and sings like a canary. Let’s also hope she’s “available” to sing, if you get my drift. They are SERIOUSLY worried about this. Bet on that. It’s infuriating, however, that the media continues to repeat the lies, repeat the lies, repeat the lies (that being that progressives were also targeted and nobody at the WH was involved).

      http://therightscoop.com/treasury-secretary-refuses-to-answer-whether-obama-irs-appointee-has-been-asked-about-targeting-tea-party/

      I saw a longer video where Wallace pointed out that OBAMA HIMSELF asked Lew to investigate and yet Lew claims that he’s leaving the investigation to the others. It’s not “appropriate” for him to investigate, and yet–Barry says he told Lew to investigate. Nobody’s ASKED ANY QUESTIONS, which is why there’s “no evidence”. Nothing’s been “shown” because they’re deliberately NOT LOOKING for it. Lerner had better see the writing on the wall. And soon. Lew continues to blame the IRS people and this time, instead of rogue employees in Cincinnati, it’s people in management who’ve been replaced.

  3. Whoops! Under the bus with Huma. No “body woman” is going to embarrass Hillary and damage HER OPTICS or her REP when she’s fixin’ to run for POTUS after lying for years that she’s not. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/clintons_mad_as_hill_over_huma_tactic_DreEqQum5fMMD4SiXeWSLJ

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are ‘livid’ at comparisons to Weiner’s sexcapades and Huma’s forgiveness

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.

    “The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat. …

    “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.” … [Huma is like a daughter to Bill and Hill. Wait, scratch that … WAS like a daughter.]

    “Hillary didn’t know Huma would do this whole stand-by-your-man routine, and that’s one of the reasons the Clintons are distancing themselves from all this nonsense,’’ the source said. …”

    HUH? Hillary did NOT “stand by her man?” She’s still with him, isn’t she?
    Exactly WHY is Hillary distancing herself? We KNOW, but the story spells it out:

    Worried about the potential impact on Hillary’s likely run for president in 2016, the political power couple has begun aggressively distancing itself from the crippled mayoral contender, according to sources. [After they arranged that marriage, too!] Meanwhile, at least one prominent Hillary Rodham Clinton political operative was described as close to “going public’’ with a sharp criticism of Weiner — in order to send the message that the Clintons, fearing longtime damage to Hillary, want him out of the mayor’s race. (That would be someone other than former Clinton White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers, who said yesterday that she was sure the Clintons wanted Weiner out of the race.)”

    Now I’m hoping that Weiner does “stick it out.”

  4. Hooray for Jeff Sessions, who’s written a memo to the RINOs basically saying what we’ve been saying: Opposing AMNESTY is a way for the Republicans to get votes from the Demoncrats, not the opposite: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/sessions-republicans-gop-elite-view-immigration-nonsense_741141.html

    ” … In Senator Schumer’s failed drive to acquire 70 votes, he convinced every single Democrat in his conference to support a bill that adds four times more guest workers than the rejected 2007 immigration plan while dramatically boosting the number of low-skill workers admitted to the country each year on a permanent basis. All this at a time when wages are lower than in 1999, when only 58 percent of U.S. adults are working, and when 47 million residents are on food stamps. Even CBO confirms that the proposal will reduce wages and increase unemployment. Low-income Americans will be hardest hit.

    Ordinarily, this would be an act of political suicide for Democrats. How can they possibly succeed with a plan that will so badly injure American workers? Perhaps Senator Schumer, the White House, and their congressional allies believe the GOP lacks the insight to seize this important issue, push away certain financial interests, and make an unapologetic defense of working Americans. They seem, in fact, to expect the GOP House to drag their bill across the finish line. Indeed, more than a few in our party will argue that immigration reform must “serve the needs of businesses.” What about the needs of workers? Since when did we did we accept the idea that the immigration policy for our entire nation—with all its lasting social, economic, and moral implications—should be tailored to suit the financial interests of a few CEOs? …

    The GOP has a choice: it can either deliver President Obama his ultimate legislative triumph—and with it, a crushing hammer blow to working Americans that they will not soon forgive—or it can begin the essential drive to regain the trust of struggling Americans who have turned away. As Rich Lowry and Bill Kristol wrote in a joint op-ed, “the Gang of Eight bill unleashes a flood of additional low-skilled immigration. The last thing low-skilled native and immigrant workers already here should have to deal with is wage-depressing competition from newly arriving workers… It’s most important that the party perform better among working-class and younger voters concerned about economic opportunity and upward mobility.” …”

    Those are just excerpts. The entire memo is well worth reading.

  6. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/07/28/stop-government-abuse-week/2588157/

    That’s interesting. The Republicans are going to push a group of 10 bills this week, related to the IRS:

    “… At the top of the list is a bill to partially repeal the 2009 health care law. [btw, did you know that the union that represents IRS employees wants them EXEMPTED from Obamacare?] … Another bill would require congressional approval of all new government regulations — a proposal critics say would handcuff the government’s ability to enforce health and safety laws.

    The effort is replete with messaging. The health care bill is H.R. 2009 — the year Obamacare was first adopted. It has four explanatory clauses but a single effective provision, barring the secretary of the Treasury from enforcing any provision of the law.

    The Stop Playing on Citizens’ Cash (SPOCC) Act would impose a moratorium on IRS conferences following the revelation that the IRS spent lavishly on a 2010 conference The agency spent $50,000 on videos for that conference, including a Star Trek parody that portrayed one IRS official as Mr. Spock.

    Other bills would allow citizens to record their conversations with federal workers, allow the IRS to fire employees who make politically motivated decisions and increase transparency on government spending.

    Two bills could affect civilian workers throughout the government. One would make it easier to fire employees immediately — without a period of paid suspension while the employee gets to appeal. Another would limit bonuses paid to federal workers….”

  7. http://oversight.house.gov/release/issa-and-jordan-seek-ig-investigation-of-new-irs-targeting-allegations/

    “Issa and Jordan Seek IG Investigation of New IRS Targeting Allegations

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders are seeking a new investigation of allegations of political targeting by the Internal Revenue Service: this time of existing groups that had already received tax-exempt status.

    “The totality of your ‘targeting’ investigation along with evidence obtained by the Committee points to the fact that the IRS may have selected certain conservative organizations for additional scrutiny after the IRS already approved their tax-exempt status,” Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, write in a letter to Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George.

    Some examples of the apparently inappropriate treatment of conservative groups shared with Committee investigators include:

    Leadership Institute, an organization that has been in existence since 1970. In audits in 2011 and 2012, the Leadership Institute was required to turn over 23,430 pages of documents to the IRS at a cost of roughly $50,000. The letter notes that Leadership Institute was asked “invasive questions, including requests for information about its interns and where they worked after their internships.”

    Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute. Noting that the treatment it received by IRS amounted to “harassment,” the President of the Institute told Committee investigators that its audit “took the greater part of 2011 and cost tens of thousands of dollars.” The Clare Booth Luce Policy Institute, like many Tea Party applicants targeted by the IRS during the same time frame, was asked for a “List of contributors and Amounts.”

    According to the IRS, a division of the Exempt Organizations Examination Unit known as the Review of Operations Unit (ROO) conducts reviews of organizations, “when the IRS has concerns about the past, present, or future activities of the organization but does not have sufficient cause to deny [tax] exemption.”

    The Committee is also asking the IG to look into the possibility that Tea Party groups who had previously been approved for tax-exempt status might have been automatically flagged for higher levels of scrutiny by the ROO unit. The letter notes that “[a]ccording to evidence obtained by the Committee, the IRS considered referring Tea Party applications to the ROO unit as part of processing pending exemption applications filed by Tea Party groups.” An IRS e-mail, recounting a summer 2011 meeting with Lois Lerner, Director of Exempt Organizations, specifically raised the use of ROO to follow-up on approved applications. According to an e-mail, “[o]ne of the recommended actions is going to be to send ROO referrals for those cases that cause us concern resulting from organizations making changes after being questioned during our case development.” …”

  8. You really can’t make this stuff up. Bill and Hill. Huma and Weiner. Peas in a pod. The DemonRAT rich really are different. Such corruption and the media, instead of investigating, are ga ga:
    http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/29/weiner-didnt-declare-costs-for-lavish-2010-wedding-to-long-suffering-wife/

    Weiner didn’t declare costs for lavish 2010 wedding

    Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group.

    Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding.

    The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all accommodations, clothing and extras. Neither Weiner nor Abedin had the resources to pay for the ultra-expensive wedding, yet neither recorded gifts on their Financial Disclosure Reports for that year. …

    Abedin and Weiner were married in Oheka Castle on Long Island in 2010, which was “Long Island’s most expensive wedding venue,” according to Newsday in January 2011. “The average wedding cost — $100,000 — does not include flowers, photography, band and hotel rooms.”

    Abedin’s wedding dress may have been almost as expensive as the wedding. Made by world-famous designer and dressmaker to Hillary Clinton, Oscar de la Renta, the custom dress would have gone for over $50,000.

    Another Clintonite, Bryan Rafanelli, was the wedding planner, some three weeks before he did Chelsea Clinton’s nuptials. The event was officiated by Bill Clinton, even though according to state law Clinton could not legally perform the marriage.

    Abedin made only $135,000 annually working for the State Department, according to financial disclosures. Anthony Weiner made $175,000 as a congressman. …

    Weiner’s final fiscal disclosure was filed in June 2011 before he left office, but he did not include Huma’s income. Weiner was inveighing against Clarence Thomas not reporting his wife, Ginni’s income at the same time he was not reporting Huma’s. …”

    • “Oheka Castle”

      At YouTube:

      “The Oheka Castle is featured as the #1 wedding venue on the WE channel’s Unforgettable Wedding Venues show. Located on Long Island, The Oheka Castle is the perfect place to have a fairytale wedding.”

      • A fairytale wedding? Is that where the Obamas got hitched? 😉

      • So by marrying there, what message do they send? We’re the elite, like the Morgans and the Rockefellers. We’re like a “king and queen”. We are destined to RULE YOU. These progressives, who all pretend to be for the “little people”, are the most repulsive and most UNAMERICAN people in this country. I say UNAMERICAN in the sense that in this country ALL ARE CREATED EQUAL. ALL ARE EQUAL. NO MAN OR WOMAN IS ABOVE ANYONE ELSE. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A CLASSLESS SOCIETY. In a certain sense, however, the likes of the Clintons and the Weiners ARE classless, meaning that they HAVE NO CLASS. Yes, Huma is like royalty, isn’t she? They adore her. They honor and praise her, as if she’s some kind of ROYALTY. Is she? Saudi connections? Nothing would surprise me. But obviously these people THINK they are above everyone else, LIKE ROYALTY. Haven’t we heard that about the Clintons? Like America’s “royal family”. It’s disgusting when you think of the genesis of this country and WHY the people rebelled against KING George. It was to THROW OFF the shackles of class and inherited power. Yet, as I said, the DemoncRATS all pretend to be for the less fortunate, as they WALLOW in their wealth and opulence AS IF THEY ARE KINGS AND QUEENS. Just look at Huma’s $50,000 dress. Queenly? I’d say. If the Weiners or the Clintons were Republicans, all you’d hear about is their WEALTH. Excoriated, like they did with the Romneys. But the Weiners, Clintons, Obamas? They admire and praise them. They ooh and aah over their disgusting displays of excess. Barry and Mooch, btw, are vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard, in a nearly $8 million house.

    • Wow. That’s amazing. Well, given the past five years, maybe not so amazing. Does any school REALLY use this book, other than the progressive private schools like the one Ayers used to run? This is typical progressive commie propaganda. Their technique is to work their memes into EVERYTHING, no matter how tangential. It’s how they shoved Barry down our throats 5 years ago–putting his face everywhere. Interjecting him into sports, for example. (Like “writing across the curriculum” but instead it’s “progressive propaganda across the curriculum.” Same theory at work.)

      Speaking of which, have you noticed that the JournOlist has re-upped the demonize-the-Tea-Party campaign for 2014? I read two different stories today, each had NOTHING to do with politics but BOTH worked in a slam at the Tea Party. One, for example, was about a tax holiday for school supplies. Right after mentioning that some people don’t care about the poor, the writer says something about the Tea Party. It’s a meme. Just like in 2010. DEMONIZE the Tea Party, so DemoncRATS retain the Senate and (they hope) seize the House. I heard on radio today about a history book used in some school system that has a 36-page chapter on ISLAM. NOTHING about any other religion. Of course, Islam is not truthfully portrayed. The person on radio said, for example, that Christians perpetrated “massacres” while Muslims just performed “takeovers”. Big difference in word choice.

    Detained For Filming Martial Law Drill on Public Property Charlotte, NC

    • Zullo says he has information from a source who won’t come forward that indicates that there never was an Obama birth at Kapiolani. This person is someone who WOULD KNOW, but won’t come out publicly.

      Zullo says something around 7 minutes or so into the video about the “real” birth certificate either having something on it that Barry doesn’t want seen or else it was RECENTLY created. He almost telegraphs, imho, that that is the case, which is likely, imho. In other words, the “original birth certificate” was created RECENTLY (such as in 2007, after Barry hightailed it to Hawaii and got Madelyn to sign an affidavit?) because Hawaiian law WOULD allow that to happen, BUT that fact would be on the BC–that it was created RECENTLY by affidavit and the dates on it would show that. It’s also likely because that explains WHY they had to fake the mother’s signature, for example, and also steal someone else’s BC#. (That’s why, originally, they had it redacted, because they rightly suspected that it would show recent creation.)

      Zullo goes on to explain how Hawaiian law allows this to happen, even that you can “self report” that you were born in Hawaii and they will give you a BC. You can have someone OTHER than your parents (Abercommie?) who will claim “residency” for the parents with any kind of documentation, and they will give a BC to a person nobody at the State EVER even interviewed.

      Obviously, this could be what happened with Barry, and we probably even watched it happen! Who doesn’t remember when Barry went to Hawaii, during the 2008 campaign, visited Madelyn in secret, got caught on camera in an alley, hopping into a black SUV, and then went nobody knows where (but we guessed at the time–to the HDOH to get a BC)? This happened during the beginnings of the controversy over his missing BC.

      Zullo has an affidavit from someone who claims that before the election, “black boots” went into the Kenyan records and removed information from their files. He can’t source this person and never met him, but he says it might be true–it sounds true.

      There’s a media blackout on this issue because, he says, they know that the public “starts to engage” and begins making phone calls when stories are written about this subject. Rep. Stockman has expressed “a lot of interest in helping” them and Zullo thinks after a meeting with Stockman, he will help; but he will need the public’s support. NSA blackmailing individuals “seems to be an every day occurrence now,” Zullo says. So there’s lots of pressure on people who might have secrets out there that the powers that be know about.

      • Wanna guess who this is?

        No, it’s not Robin Williams. 🙂

        • And we have yet another candidate for female backstory-creating obot of the year. I am TOTALLY ashamed to have missed this one. Interviews on CNN and Hawaiian news outlets. Gee, CNN. Can anybody say Tuchmann? Well, I didn’t TOTALLY miss it: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/the-bluff-by-the-media-pundits-and-government-officials-wont-work/comment-page-2/#comment-54437 This would have to be, of course. You’d HAVE TO have the widow on board. They didn’t, however, account for Verna Lee. Conveniently, he had a “solo practice” which means no associates who still may have records. And she was on a task force, advising the HDOH. Just a coincidence, however.

            She was quite the activist. Lots of connections.

          • from the link ^^

            Obama’s birth certificate clearly states he was born Aug. 4, 1961, in the Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu.

            “That is his signature and I have many pieces of paper with his signature on it and I’d be happy to show them to anyone who questions it. But that is his signature,” Sinclair said.

            A proud Obama supporter, Sinclair said she doubts the birth certificate will end the debate.

            more proof of fraud, criminal hoodwinking.

            And still another lie to be proven, eventually. Get her under oath with a handwriting expert next to her.

            • We could have GUESSED that she has many examples of her husband’s handwriting. Where else …

              Isn’t it interesting that it’s said that probably SAD used him as her ob/gyn because he had a “solo practice” and yet in 1961, coincidentally, he was a “newly minted” doctor. So somehow this just-starting-out doctor could afford a SOLO practice in HONOLULU. How many newly-minted doctors BEGIN their careers in a solo practice?

          • Perhaps O. should send Mrs. Sinclair a thankyou note for letting someone copy paste ‘his’ name on his famous doucument. That’s the least he could do.

            • I have to wonder if there are any other birth certificates out there with his signature. Also, when, exactly, he began practice and when he began delivering babies at Kapiolani. A newly-minted OB in a solo practice with admitting privileges and no associates? Interesting. And she just happens to be an education activist who also advised the HDOH at times, AND she attended U of Hawaii!

        • Santa and Mrs Claus on vacation in Hawaii?

          • Good guess! Nope, that’s Ivalee and Dr. David A. Sinclair. I just stumbled upon their photo. I don’t remember seeing his face before.

    “scru you guys, I’m going home”

    Rambling today on an open thread!
    By the way, reading about Huma and somewhere I read that Hill and Jeb were going to be the Bilderberg picks for 2016 to be our new ruler,
    whatever happened to TD?

    • Hi, Dave M. Good to hear from you!

      Myrmidon: A more-literate description for obot. 🙂

      From wikipedia: “In pre-industrial Europe the word “myrmidon” carried many of the same connotations that “minion” does today. Myrmidon later came to mean “hired ruffian” (according to the Oxford English Dictionary) or “a loyal follower, especially one who executes orders without question, protest, or pity – unquestioning followers.” (Dictionary.com).”

      That about sums it up. You got it!

      For sure they want Hill or Jeb. Either one from the two ruling dynasties. Failing Jeb, they have the “moderate” big man as understudy. That would be Christie. The campaign for Hillary has begun in the lamestream. A juggernaut. They will pick the Republican “opposition”, as they did in 2008 with McLame. We didn’t especially want Romney in 2012, either. But they pick our candidate for us–designed to lose to the progressives.

      Don’t know what happened to TD. Sorry.

      • Frankly I’m glad they’ve started pushing Hill and Jeb early. Maybe if anyone with a lick of good sense will be sick of thinking of voting for either of them by the time election cycle rolls around. If folks won’t agree to the spoon fed media mixtures and will do some consumer shopping for a decent candidate for either side. Wouln’t that be a lark???

        • You’re right. We already have Bush fatigue (despite that I’d rather have GWB back, all things considered) and it won’t be long before more and more get Hillary fatigue, if they don’t have it already. She has way too much baggage (and I’m not talking about her thunder thighs here 😉 ). People like Rush Limbaugh will not be silent about her, although maybe that’s why suddenly we’re hearing about the corporation that carries his program perhaps dropping him AND Hannity’s radio show, too. Gee, just in time for the election! WILL that corporation and all the stations take huge losses, all for Hill? Who knows? The powers that be are probably leaning hard on them. The threats continue, as they did in 2008.

  11. Here is some encouragement; looks like we are the sane ones afterall (like we didn’t already know that!) http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/07/17/new-studies-conspiracy-theorists-sane-while-government-dupes-are-crazy-and-hostile/

    • We knew we’re not nuts. 😉

      “… Additionally, the study found that so-called conspiracists discuss historical context (such as viewing the JFK assassination as a precedent for 9/11) more than anti-conspiracists. It also found that the so-called conspiracists to not like to be called “conspiracists” or “conspiracy theorists.”

      Both of these findings are amplified in the new book Conspiracy Theory in America by political scientist Lance deHaven-Smith, published earlier this year by the University of Texas Press. Professor deHaven-Smith explains why people don’t like being called “conspiracy theorists”: The term was invented and put into wide circulation by the CIA to smear and defame people questioning the JFK assassination! “The CIA’s campaign to popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a target of ridicule and hostility must be credited, unfortunately, with being one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”

      In other words, people who use the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” as an insult are doing so as the result of a well-documented, undisputed, historically-real conspiracy by the CIA to cover up the JFK assassination. That campaign, by the way, was completely illegal, and the CIA officers involved were criminals; the CIA is barred from all domestic activities, yet routinely breaks the law to conduct domestic operations ranging from propaganda to assassinations. …”

      What a surprise! The CIA uses Alinsky tactics, too.

    When did we become the USBA (Unites States of Black America)?

  13. How many times have I said that Barry supports the Saudis by deliberately stymieing our oil production because their entire economy depends upon oil and HIS INTEREST lies in keeping SAUDI ARABIA afloat as long as possible on their oil? His allegiances and loyalties are clear and ARE SEEN in his policies, including the ones that provide that we develop the “green energy technologies” and then HAND THEM TO THE SAUDIS. Now our favorite prince is proving me right: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/1b6753ce-f86f-11e2-92f0-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2aY3RPnM2

    “Alwaleed warns of US shale danger to Saudi

    Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the billionaire Saudi Arabian investor, has warned that his country’s oil-dependent economy is increasingly vulnerable to competition from the US shale revolution, [RAY!!!!!] setting him at odds with his country’s oil ministry and Opec officials.

    In an open letter addressed to Ali Naimi, the Saudi oil minister, the prince called on the government to accelerate plans to diversify the economy.

    Our country is facing continuous threat because of its almost total dependency on oil,” he wrote in the letter, copied to King Abdullah, Prince Alwaleed’s uncle, among others. [And we’ve been facing continuous threat because of our dependence on THEIR oil.]

    Opec officials have sought to play down the threat posed to the kingdom from surging North American oil production, which saw US imports from Opec members tumble to a 15-year low last year. …

    International Energy Agency forecasts demand for crude Opec to fall sharply over the next five years. [RAY!!!!!]

    The world is increasingly less dependent on oil from Opec countries including the kingdom,” Prince Alwaleed wrote. [RAY!!!!!!!] …”

    And that’s a good thing, except to the Prince and Barry.

    White House Is Using “Behavioral Insights Scientists” in Over a Dozen Departments to Help ‘Nudge’ Citizen Behavior

    The federal government is hiring what it calls a “Behavioral Insights Team” that will look for ways to subtly influence people’s behavior, according to a document describing the program obtained by FoxNews.com. Critics warn there could be unintended consequences to such policies, while supporters say the team could make government and society more efficient.

    While the program is still in its early stages, the document shows the White House is already working on such projects with almost a dozen federal departments and agencies including the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture.

    “Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less, and help people to achieve their goals,” reads the government document describing the program, which goes on to call for applicants to apply for positions on the team.

    The document was emailed by Maya Shankar, a White House senior adviser on social and behavioral sciences, to a university professor with the request that it be distributed to people interested in joining the team. The idea is that the team would “experiment” with various techniques, with the goal of tweaking behavior so people do everything from saving more for retirement to saving more in energy costs. [Experimenting on people without their INFORMED CONSENT is unethical and every “scientist” should know that.]

    The Obama Administration already has behavioral teams working with over a dozen federal departments and agencies on newly-designed behavioral insights projects …”

    Your tax dollars at work.

  15. It can be done. Oh, yes. It can be done. A Republican wins in CALIFORNIA, with hispanic support, by talking to them about the issues:

    “… We talked to them in their homes, where they are most comfortable on the issues that matter most to them: improving the economy, lower taxes, less government interference with small business,” Republican Assemblyman Travis Allen said.

    Fresno GOP Chairman Kurtis Wiley said he had never seen a party work harder and rally its resources any better. …”

    But on the other hand: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/30/top-gop-donors-party-legalize-illegal-immigrants/

    Top GOP donors tell party to legalize illegal immigrants

    Nearly a hundred top Republican donors and Bush administration officials sent a letter to the House GOP on Tuesday urging lawmakers to pass a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, arguing that the current system is already allowing them to stay and so it makes sense to register them and bring them into the system. …”

    Despite that MOST Republicans and a majority of all Americans OPPOSE AMNESTY. It’s political suicide for the RINOs, but they don’t care.

  16. Does this news explain the WH lunch summit between Hill and Barry? Getting their stories straight? http://www.inquisitr.com/875368/benghazi-scandal-hero-david-ubben-fought-with-seals-speaks-for-first-time/

    One of the survivors of Benghazi speaks out, even though the administration has tried its best to keep our representatives from talking to him. David Ubben waited 20 hours after his leg was “shredded” on the rooftop in Benghazi, where he tried to save the SEALS. NO MEDICAL AIRCRAFT were sent to assist him. It will be September before we hear testimony from the survivors. The State Dept. NOW denies that they made all survivors sign “non-disclosure” papers. Ubben is still recovering from this attack. Byron York says that the families agree this is NOT a “phony scandal.” I’ll bet the lunch summit was to get the talking points straight. Hillary stands to lose the most on this issue. She LIED to Congress, imho; but will she be held to account? A FOX polls says 62% of respondents believe that Barry should have sent troops to Benghazi to address the attack on the consulate.

    • Connections? http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3049013/posts

      A journalist and a researcher have sued the Justice Department for access to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s records on the late journalist Michael Hastings.

      The lawsuit follows the FBI’s failure to respond to separate Freedom of Information Act requests for records on Hastings submitted by journalist Jason Leopold of al-Jazeera and Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher Ryan Shapiro.

      Agencies are required by statute to notify applicants about whether it will fulfill their requests within a 20-working-day period of the initial application.

      In the hours before his death, which was ruled an accident by the Los Angeles Police Department, Hastings emailed Wikileaks’ lawyer Jennifer Robinson that he was being investigated by the federal government.

      Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs — who knew Hastings when he was embedded with Bigg’s unit in Afghanistan — told KTLA Hastings had blind copied him on an email sent 15 hours before his death, notifying colleagues that federal officials were interviewing his “close friends and associates.”

      Leopold, a personal friend of Hastings, wrote in a piece published on the Freedom of the Press Foundation’s website that a government investigation into Hastings would not be a surprise.

      Given the nature of Hastings’s investigative work and the revelations that have surfaced about the government’s interest in journalists’ sources it wouldn’t come as a surprise to me if some agency was looking into Hastings’s journalistic activities,” said Leopold …”

      h/t maggief at FR:

      “On Sunday morning, BuzzFeed correspondent Michael Hastings emailed Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and personal spokesman at the State Department, asking a series of pointed questions about State’s handling of the Benghazi fiasco, and Reines’ over-the-top attack on CNN. The emails quickly got personal, with Reines calling Hastings an “unmitigated asshole” before an exchange of harsh words on both sides.

      The email chain concluded with Reines writing that Hastings should “F**k Off” and “Have a good life.” …” (Read the entire thing to see what Hastings was asking about Benghazi.)

      Then this from yesterday: hhttp://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/29/huma-abedin-dines-with-clinton-spokesman/

      Huma Abedin was spotted having dinner Monday night with Hillary Clinton’s spokesman, Philippe Reines, in Washington.

      The two were seen sitting outside at Meiwah Restaurant, a bustling area located between the neighborhoods known as Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom.

      Meiwah is a favorite spot of Reines’ and is considered a place to see and be seen.

      Their public outing comes after a source pushed back against a report that Bill and Hillary Clinton have political concerns about their association with New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, Abedin’s husband.

      Weiner, a Democrat, is resisting calls to drop his bid for mayor despite admitting to sending more lewd messages and photos after his 2011 resignation from Congress. …”

      So we have the Hill/Barry lunch summit. Reines who dealt with Hastings over Benghazi meeting up with Huma Abedin, Hill’s body woman, just as the story about Ubbens being left on the roof, wounded, comes out and just as people are pushing hard for records about Hastings’s untimely death.

    • This is such good news.

      The Fox report at the backstory link ^ gave me the chills.

      • I did notice the arugula. Did it come from Mooch’s garden or Whole Foods?

        • Notice there wasn’t even a glass of water offered to the diners at the Benghazi summit?

          (Apparently you don’t eat the props, either.)

    “Team Arpaio: Congressman Lou Barletta Presented With Obama ID Fraud Evidence”
    By Michael Volin

    “This morning Dale Laudenslager, My wife Ruth Reeder and I had a meeting with my Congressman’s staff. During the meeting we presented all the evidence we had available, which included the entire Sheriff Arpaio news conference video and the subsequent videos. We also supplied the affidavit supplied to the Alabama Supreme Court by Mike Zullo. We also conducted a telephone conference with Mike Zullo who gave a 1 hour briefing.

    The staff was cordial and receptive and actually agreed with most of our findings. We have a pledge from the staff to investigate all of the materials.

    All of the evidence presented can now be downloaded on my site, http://www.wheresobamasbirthcertificate.com we are promoting it as a sheriff’s kit for everyone to present to their Congressman.

    We are asking everyone to get involved there is a lot of movement on this now, people are making appointments to visit their representatives.”

  20. I love the HAMMER. 🙂

  21. This IS unfortunate but timely: http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/07/bill-clinton-sex-tape-monica-lewinsky/

    ” … The tape and other racy mementoes, including love letters Lewinsky wrote to Clinton, were obtained by an individual who was hired as a “cleaner” by individuals close to Lewinsky.

    The source kept the sensational material private for the past 15 years and the Clintons reportedly thought the evidence had been destroyed.

    “First, I forgot to tell you that the Gingko Blowjoba, or whatever it’s called, was from me,” Lewinsky wrote in one romantic note to Clinton.

    “I also included those new Zinc throat lozenges which are rumored to be great.”

    In a series of pleading notes, a clearly distraught Lewinsky pestered Clinton to make time for her and begged him to explain why he ended their illicit romance.

    The Enquirer reports the emergence of the tape could torpedo Hillary’s expected run for the White House.

    “The Clintons thought this sex tape was dead and buried,” said one source. “If this tape and other material are surfacing now, imagine what else must be out there?

    “This could be just the tip of theiceberg and the most embarrassing ‘bimbo eruption’ of all for the Clintons.””

    • Guess this whole Clinton thing “who never had sex with that woman” or anywoman ..this fiasko is why the Bilderbergers or somebody decided Obama was a sure thing. Aint nobody going to find him sneakin off doing the nasty with a woman…..so there’s no likelyhood of needing his DNA, which would sure help these days put the clincher on Obama’s origins. Darn,, just when another scandel could have a good outcome in this administration, is all I could think about while reading the Lewinsky reruns.

      “It is very difficult to ignore accusations of phoniness from the master of all things phony who has dedicated his entire life to one phony scam after another. But when this unprecedented level of criminal abuse of power is so flagrantly dictated from the most powerful man in the world, good Americans should be quivering in our boots.

      No, Mr. President, those are not phony tears from Brian Terry’s mother. Those are real tears, unlike your constant phony blather about caring about the middle class [see below for a theory about this] as you continue your well-orchestrated kamikaze economic swan dive for the average American family.

      And, be assured, you old Chicago ACORN scammaster you, that those were not phony body bags that arrived home from Benghazi. As the greatest phony America has ever known, like your phoniest phony “job” as community organizer, your phony claims to get to the bottom of that horrific dereliction of duty by your phony secretary of state was just another scam of phony smoke and mirrors to placate your phony sheep-like constituency.

      Phony is as phony does, Mr. President, but none of the tea party or conservative Republicans’ claims of illegal targeting by your phony IRS jackboots is phony by any stretch of the imagination. …”

      I hope you can read this article: http://online.wsj.com/article/wonder_land.html

      “If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what’s on his mind is something else.

      The first term’s over-and-over subject was “the wealthiest 1%.” Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won.

      The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But the real purpose here isn’t the speeches’ parboiled proposals. It is what he says the shafting of the middle class is forcing him to do. It is forcing him to “act”—to undertake an unprecedented exercise of presidential power in domestic policy-making. ObamaCare was legislated. In the second term, new law will come from him. [IOW–his DICTATORSHIP]

      Please don’t complain later that you didn’t see it coming. As always, Mr. Obama states publicly what his intentions are. He is doing that now. Toward the end of his speech last week in Jacksonville, Fla., he said: “So where I can act on my own, I’m going to act on my own. I won’t wait for Congress.” (Applause.)

      The July 24 speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., has at least four references to his intent to act on his own authority, as he interprets it: “That means whatever executive authority I have to help the middle class, I’ll use it.” (Applause.) And: “We’re going to do everything we can, wherever we can, with or without Congress.[Mind you, he’s currently sitting in the WH because he’s done everything he can to amass that power WITHOUT THE CONSTITUTIONAL ELIGIBILITY TO DO SO; however, it was WITH the help of Congress, which refuses to this day to VET HIM.]

      Every president since George Washington has felt frustration with the American system’s impediments to change. This president is done with Congress.

      The political left, historically inclined by ideological belief to public policy that is imposed rather than legislated, will support Mr. Obama’s expansion of authority. The rest of us should not. …

      The U.S. has a system of checks and balances. Mr. Obama is rebalancing the system toward a national-leader model that is alien to the American tradition. [Yes, dictatorship is ALIEN to our tradition, but it’s fitting in a way because Obama is ALIEN, too. We still don’t know WHO HE IS, but unfortunately we’re finding out.]

      To create public support for so much unilateral authority, Mr. Obama needs to lessen support for the other two branches of government—Congress and the judiciary. He is doing that.

      In a recent Journal op-ed, “Obama Suspends the Law,” former federal judge Michael McConnell noted there are few means to stop a president who decides he is not obligated to execute laws as passed by Congress. So there’s little reason to doubt we’ll see more Obamaesque dismissals of established law, as with ObamaCare’s employer mandate. Mr. Obama is pushing in a direction that has the potential for a political crisis. … ”

      TO SAY THE LEAST!!!!

      I think this is the first guy to point out what Barry is REALLY up to with his new, campaign-like swing through the country. Setting up public support for his DICTATORSHIP. Just like Hitler did. It’s really frightening that, once again, nobody’s paying attention. HE DOES TELL US what he’s going to do (such as make energy costs skyrocket) but nobody believes him (except us chickens).

      • He forgot to mention the phony “Indian”–Elizabeth Warren.

      • A little vetting by Lou Dobbs.

        • It should be said that he’s not only not a constitutional law professor, but he’s also not a lawyer, either. NO license. Not a lawyer. btw, is there ANY EVIDENCE that he EVER PRACTICED law? Congress SHOULD DO what they are empowered to do and that is DEFUND his unconstitutional programs AND bring articles of impeachment. There are plenty of grounds. First of all, REFUSING TO ENFORCE THE LAW.

          • I Love that big ZERO lou dobbs put up there by O’s credentials…which are few. Maybe at the lawfirm he worked for, he did research for the REAL LAWYERS. Can you find a single court case he’s ever tried? I can’t…although he did probably do some OFFICE lawyering, signing papers, giving Resko legalise, hmmm.
            This morning I thought I would start calling Capital Hill the WEINER HILL now. What do ya think? Sound more fitting??

            • He was “of counsel,” according to Wikipedia. I never heard of that before: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_life_and_career_of_Barack_Obama#Settling_down_in_Chicago

              “… He published no legal scholarship, and turned down tenured positions, but served eight years in the Illinois Senate during his twelve years at the university.

              In 1993 Obama joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a 12-attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, where he was an associate for three years from 1993 to 1996, then of counsel from 1996 to 2004, with his law license becoming inactive in 2007. The firm was well-known among influential Chicago liberals and leaders of the black community, and the firm’s Judson H. Miner, who met with Obama to recruit him before Obama’s 1991 graduation from law school, had been counsel to former Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, although the law firm often clashed with the administration of Mayor Richard M. Daley. The 29-year-old law student made it clear in his initial interview with Miner that he was more interested in joining the firm to learn about Chicago politics than to practice law. During the four years Obama worked as a full-time lawyer at the firm, he was involved in 30 cases and accrued 3,723 billable hours. …”

              But doing what? I remember, long ago, reading that he mostly just sat at the counsel’s table during trials but did nothing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Of_counsel

              “Of counsel is often the title of an attorney who is employed by a law firm or an organization, but is not an associate or a partner. …

              Formal Opinion 90-357 of the American Bar Association provides four acceptable definitions of the term:

              A part-time practitioner who practices law in association with a firm, but on a basis different from that of the mainstream lawyers in the firm. Such part-time practitioners are sometimes lawyers who have decided to change from a full-time practice, either with that firm or with another, to a part-time one, or sometimes lawyers who have changed careers entirely, as for example former judges or government officials, or attorneys who transition from corporate/in-house practice to law firm practice.

              A retired partner of the firm who, although not actively practicing law, nonetheless remains associated with the firm and available for occasional consultation.

              A lawyer who is, in effect, a probationary partner-to-be: usually a lawyer brought into the firm laterally with the expectation of becoming partner after a relatively short period of time.

              A permanent status in between those of partner and associate, having the quality of tenure, or something close to it, and lacking that of an expectation of likely promotion to full partner status. …”

                “… “He was doing the work that any first-year or second-year associate would do,” Miner says. “In litigation, he was doing basic research and writing memos. . . . . In the first couple years he would play a very minor role. He wouldn’t know [much], so he would take the lead from whoever was supervising his work.”

                Obama took what Miner called the “laboring oar” on some cases. He took the lead arguing a 1994 case before the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of a securities trader who had been improperly fired. The court ruled for his client. …”

    “Exclusive: Dozens of CIA operatives on the ground during Benghazi attack

    CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack.

    Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya.

    Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

    CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency’s Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out…”

    • Why? Because they were breaking US law? Or that and international law, too?

      • Yes, what’s crap is that they’re trying to blame all on the CIA and exonerate Clinton (aka the State Dept.). Stevens worked for Hillary. She’s knee deep in this coverup AND she knew what he was doing. HE was facilitating this. He met with that Turk for a REASON, and we can guess why.

        • BREAKING>>> GOP Rep: Obama WH Is Hiding Benghazi Survivors AND CHANGING THEIR NAMES (Video)

          Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, August 1, 2013, 9:40 PM

          Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was on with Greta Van Susteren tonight to discuss the Obama scandals.

          This came after Jake Tapper at CNN broke the news today that there were “dozens” of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi on 9-11 when the consulate came under attack and the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

          Gowdy told Greta the Obama Administration is hiding the survivors, dispersing them around the country, AND changing their names.

          “Including changing names, creating aliases. Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names.”

          And, at the same time Obama is hiding the survivors around the country he’s calling Benghazi a ‘phony’ scandal.

            It’s not as if we didn’t suspect this from the very beginning!

            CIA ‘running arms smuggling team in Benghazi when consulate was attacked’

            The CIA has been subjecting operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an attempt to suppress details of a US arms smuggling operation in Benghazi that was ongoing when its ambassador was killed by a mob in the city last year, according to reports.

            Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in the city during the attack last September on the US consulate that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to CNN.

            The circumstances of the attack are a subject of deep division in the US with some Congressional leaders pressing for a wide-ranging investigation into suspicions that the government has withheld details of its activities in the Libyan city.

            The television network said that a CIA team was working in an annex near the consulate on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armouries to Syrian rebels.

            Sources said that more Americans were hurt in the assault spearheaded by suspected Islamic radicals than had been previously reported. CIA chiefs were actively working to ensure the real nature of its operations in the city did not get out.

            So only the losses suffered by the State Department in the city had been reported to Congress. …

            “Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency’s missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency’s workings,” CNN reported. …”

            And now we know that the survivors were basically put into a “witness protection” program, the goal of which was NOT to protect the witnesses but to protect the Obama administration from the TRUTH. This Benghazi SCANDAL (far from phony as Carney Barker alleges), they know, will harm Hillary’s candidacy, so I suspect it’s going to break now in order to (they hope) innoculate her in time for 2016, when it will be “old news” and she and her myrmidons 🙂 can argue: “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

            HOWEVER, Hillary KNEW and was IN ON the coverup from the beginning. That’s obvious. Hillary is Obama’s chief myrmidon. Her choice. She took the deal. She rises and falls with him. There’s no way to separate her from him now. It was the Cairo embassy that first put out the meme that the attack in Benghazi was a reaction to hateful speech denigrating religion–the embassy reports to HILLARY. Here’s where we first started to talk about Benghazi: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/09/11/we-shall-never-forget-the-events-of-9-11/comment-page-1/#comment-92287

            They’re going to try to blame this on the CIA, AS IF the Dept. of State and its employees had NOTHING TO DO with the operation. It was a JOINT operation, because that’s WHAT Stevens was doing there in Benghazi–facilitating the movement of the arms. Why ELSE would he be meeting with a Turk on the anniversary of 9/11, no less?

            Glenn Beck recounted a story on radio this morning, about a member of Congress (he deliberately did not specify whether the Senate or House) but one presume this person is a Republican. The member spoke to another member of Congress, which we can presume is a DemonRat. He told the other member that he had spoken personally with one of the survivors in Walter Reed hospital. The presumed DemoncRAT vehemently denied that any such person was at Walter Reed. Guess what? The very next day, the person WAS no longer at Walter Reed. The obvious happened.

            Beck’s sources confirm that the survivors’ families are being threatened. The survivors themselves are being threatened. In addition, despite that the Obama administration DENIED this earlier, today radio news CONFIRMS that survivors WERE made to sign “non-disclosure” paperwork. This is what happens when you “elect” CHICAGO THUGS. HILLARY herself, remember, IS A CHICAGO THUG, TOO.

            NO TO HILLARY in 2016. She would be nothing more than the continuation of the corrupt Obama dictatorship.

          • survivors is a misnomer. they are prisoners.

            “Phony” is the pot calling the kettle black.

            • Which is why I suspect this crap about a potential terrorist attack is WAG THE DOG and DISTRACT FROM ALL HIS “PHONY” SCANDALS. Benghazi and the IRS. Both are blowing up again, and yesterday coincidentally the Congress members met with Barry to discuss the NSA programs. Suddenly, ORANGE ALERT! What a freaking coinkidink.

  26. One has to wonder where Colin Powell was on the NSA spying programs? I wonder if he feels ANY sympathy for US now or, especially, someone like Petraeus or Gen. Allen? Poetic justice? Keep in mind that head of the NSA just addressed a convention of HACKERS! [And got heckled by people who are at least ARGUABLY criminals for LYING to Congress!] http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/colin-powell-guccifer-email-hack-594321

    “As a notorious hacker seeks to distribute “very personal” e-mails sent to Colin Powell by a female Romanian diplomat, the retired general is denying that he engaged in an extramarital affair with the woman while he served as Secretary of State, though he recently advised her to delete all their online exchanges, The Smoking Gun has learned.

    In a statement addressing his relationship with Corina Cretu, a member of the European Parliament who previously held a series of senior posts in the Romanian government, Powell, 76, wrote that he has known Cretu for about 10 years, having first met her “when I was the Secretary of State and she was an assistant to the President of Romania. We occasionally attended the same diplomatic and international meetings.” …”

    • Likely Story, Powell.

      can’t wait to hear the rest.

      • Kind of explains a lot, doesn’t it? I mean, who DON’T they have something on, even if all it is is some indiscreet words? I mean, who doesn’t say things in private (or what they think is private) that they’d NEVER say in public?

    • We’ve considered that from the get go.

    • I read that. Double agent ,who knows…can’t figure, but just in case it’s to also take out eye off something, say like any scandel (take your pick), or now does Putin see him as some bartering chip over something with Syria???? What ever it is, the journalist made some great points about the way in which Snoden presented everything ,. I agree that people on the hill are setting up the public to get a consensus of ” guilty” before he’s even been questioned.

    “Oprah Winfrey: Americans know ‘diddly-squat’ about civil rights era”

    “Ms. Winfrey also said that when she hears the N-word, she thinks of the “millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”

    Her count may be off a bit, however; as Breitbart reported, Tuskegee Institute historians say that about 3,446 blacks were lynched in America between the years of 1882 and 1968.

    Ms. Winfrey capped the interview with a commentary about the acquittal of Florida resident George Zimmerman on murder charges for the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The “shooting of Trayvon Martin” was notable because it exposed just what value Americans put on black lives, she said, Breitbart reported.”

    “Even media can no longer ignore black violence”

    “(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence.

    A startling new trend is sweeping newsrooms across the country: Reporters are telling the truth about black mob violence.

    OK, it was just two reporters and two stories in one week.

    But it happens so rarely that it seems like a torrent.”

    • Sorry to be glum, but spare me Oprah’s rant. I’ve about had it with poor Treyvan, the “New Martyr”. Doesn’t anyone know the old story of Jonathan Jackson, his brother in prison, George Jackson…and Angela Davis. A gruesome, gruesome story ,if one bothers to read the gorrrry details…or better yet watch the hour long utube on George Jackson….

      Now it just so happens that everybody, from Jarret, Rev. Jackson, Sharpton, Abnthoy Sutton Medger Evers lawyer,the black panthers all those marxist, communist organizations (everyone you can think of), all Obama mentors piled on to the racial martyrdom of the Jacdson brothers.
      Now that the Jackson brothers are pretty well rotted in the grave and Obama is the sybolic race guru, they’ve all found some new carcus to feed on with Treywon. I it weren’t Treyvon, they’d find somebody else as they need some new flesh and blood emotional aliby to keep the race saga going.
      This is exactly what this is a Jackson brothers reincarnatinon. to the letter.

      • Amen Alfy. They should let it go. 😡

        • THese people still hold ceremonies for the Jackson Brothers, Obama knows about these guys and Trayvon is the new stir the race bait stew. Agreed Foxy, let it gooooooo! In case ya’ll didn’t notice , I commented only a few times when this incedent first happened, but never after that till today. I even held my tongue about the Jackson Boys till now…I was going to show you all about them, but it’s just not going to do anygood anyway. DONE

      • Rosemary Woodhouse

        Yes! And now this….
        And yes, I am rivited by how polarizing the pre…oh whoever the hell he is..has divided this nation along racial lines when so many strides had been made.

          Arlen Williams:

          “Poll: Obama, Holder & Co. Succeeding in Interracial Sabotage”

          “Over and over again, it has been our message to America and the world that Barack Obama is of his sentiments and intentions a Marxist and pro-Islamist, and that functionally, at this stage of soft warfare upon America, he is also a neo-fascist (essentially the same as a structural neo-Marxist by increment). We use the word, Marxofascist.

          We try and try to spread the alert that he is the figurehead of a titanic sabotage intended to divide and disintegrate authentic America, to make it essentially a failed state, likely to make it vulnerable to a grand bargain offered by the transnational central bank complex and its globalist despots of (choose the term or terms you prefer: communitarianism, neo-Marxism, neo-fascism, statism, collectivism, authoritarianism, kleptocracy, neo-feudalism).

          One of the many glaringly obvious aspects of this master plan, for anyone who wishes to open a squinting eye is racial division (before 2008, called “racial relations”) and the telegraphed moves of orchestration by these “progressives,” of the Trayvon Martin death should make it all the easier to see.”

    • I didn’t read the details. Of the 3446 who were lynched, how many were for reasons other than hate? Like a crime committed by the deceased? I ask because yesterday I read a story somewhere (Gateway Pundit?) that over a thousand whites were also lynched. So WHY were THEY lynched? Because they committed crimes and law enforcement was at that time effected by citizen posses?

      • Bet there was a lot of White cattle rustlers Lynched too. 🙂

        • http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/shipp/lynchingsstate.html

          One has to wonder. Why were 1297 whites lynched? As I said, because of criminal acts? Surely it wasn’t blacks lynching whites. In every state with a lot of black lynchings, there were also white lynchings. In some states, MANY more white lynchings than black lychings. So what was going on there? Just regular “citizen” justice? One has to wonder if blacks were disproportionately committing crimes back then as they are today? Just looking at the raw numbers would make it APPEAR as if today we imprison blacks for being blacks. So …
