“It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep.

Who do you want answering the phone?”


A better question would be:

Who DON’T you want answering that phone?

  3. Obama Laughs About ‘Crazy’
    Birth Certificate Questions
    Hunter Walker @ Business Insider …. @ BR now

    President Barack Obama reminisced about the conspiracy theories surrounding his birth certificate during a speech at the National Action Network convention in New York City Friday afternoon. Obama referenced the doubts about his citizenship that led him to release a copy of his birth certificate in 2011 while criticizing voter I.D. laws that require people to present documentation like passports and birth certificates to vote.

    “Just to be clear, I know where my birth certificate is,” he added.

    Obama then began to laugh.

    “You remember that? That was crazy,” said Obama. “Haven’t thought about that in a while.”
    …. lalala… O’ REALLY SOE~BARK~AH… & just
    (WTF….) WHAT do U THINK ABOUT… each and every DAY ?

    Obama’s speech focused on voting rights. He cited a “recent effort to restrict the vote” that he said was “led” by the Republican Party. […] Continued @ Business Insider. Hat tip Guest.

    BREAK: Sen. Reid/Chinese gov’t takeover of ranch for solar farm?

    • Those headlines are at Drudge right now. I heard somewhere that they want the land for the WATER and other resources, not to mention solar arrays and wind farms. They won’t say whether or not they killed the man’s cattle. Is there no place he can argue his case? imho, though, he ought to have paid the grazing fees and then challenged their legitimacy in court. The nuances of his “preemptive rights” are about as complex as NBC determination.

      “Deleted from but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”

      “Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states. … Another BLM report entitled “Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone” (BLM Technical Note 444) reveals that Bundy’s land in question is within the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and surrounding area” which is part of a broad U.S. Department of Energy program for “Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” on land “managed” by BLM. … Back in 2012, the New American reported that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, was the chief representative for a Chinese energy firm planning to build a $5-billion solar plant on public land in Laughlin, Nevada.

      And journalist Marcus Stern with Reuters also reported that Sen. Reid was heavily involved in the deal as well.

      “[Reid] and his oldest son, Rory, are both involved in an effort by a Chinese energy giant, ENN Energy Group, to build a $5 billion solar farm and panel manufacturing plant in the southern Nevada desert,” he wrote. “Reid has been one of the project’s most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on behalf of the project in Nevada.”

      “His son, a lawyer with a prominent Las Vegas firm that is representing ENN, helped it locate a 9,000-acre (3,600-hectare) desert site that it is buying well below appraised value from Clark County, where Rory Reid formerly chaired the county commission.”

      Although these reports are in plain view, the mainstream media has so far ignored this link.”

      OF COURSE the lamestream ignores these links. And documents are scrubbed just in case some reporter may actually remain unbiased.

      “Trespass cattle.” Can you believe it? What about the wild horses? Are they trespassing, too, or is that why they’re being rounded up? What about those poor euthanized turtles? What about the birds FRIED by solar arrays? These people pretend to be environmentalists when ALL they want to do is PROFIT by usurping and making off limits OUR PUBLIC LANDS. It certainly is interesting that they SCRUBBED this from their taxpayer-owned website when the story hit the lamestream.


      • I heard Dana Loesch on TV say that if these trespass cattle were ILLEGAL ALIENS, then the gummint would be handing them Obamaphones and EBT cards and welcoming them to trespass in our country.

        • STEALING OUR LAND to hand over to the RED CHINESE so they can PROFIT. Punishing and threatening a U.S. citizen whose family has ranched those lands LEGALLY for over 150 years, before they even were part of the USA. Why? To enrich our ENEMIES and OBAMA’S FRIENDS. The Chinese have long had their eyes on our public lands. This is ONLY THE BEGINNING. Those lands belong to WE THE PEOPLE, not to OBAMA and not to the RED CHINESE.

          • Rosemary Woodhouse

            This and the Justina Pellitier case are ominous, foreshadowing and the tip of the iceberg of what they have in store if allowed to continue FORCING their NWO agenda , full throttle and unabated upon the US citizenry who are passively accepting it ass as a herd of stunned sheep. And people wonder how Hitler was able to get away with it. Just watch. This is how. It’s t as if the fall of America is a sequel to Hitler’s Reich.

        • “So we have cows roaming around illegally on federal land with armed federal agents rounding em up and killing some, and then we have 20 million illegals roaming around Amerika and they do nothing?” Comment by a Freeper. So true. That entire post and all the comments are well worth reading for INSIGHT into what’s really happening. Barry’s “civilian force” and AGENDA 21 being instituted right under our noses.

  7. It’s Going…. DOWN HILL…. they took the Cows… NOW they stay

    4 ….BLOOD? WHY?

    • No fly zone? (Barry better stay away; he draws flies.) That’s so nobody can take photos of them killing the cattle. The PETA folks POSSIBLY might be upset. Not to mention–they’re bulldozing and burying the corpses instead of at least donating the meat to a food pantry. THEFT. Plain and simple. THEY LIE, too, and say they aren’t killing them. But they are, which is why NO FLY ZONE so no media helicopters can observe what they’re up to. This is typical OBAMANATION lack of transparency. And if they make it worse, as in WACO and Ruby Ridge, then there will be no INDEPENDENT MEDIA COVERAGE so We the People know what’s being done in OUR NAME.

    • A Sheriff with common sense to the rescue?

      “A major development is percolating in the showdown at the Bundy ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada — a possible deal is in the works. It’s an 8 News Now exclusive.

      The I-Team has learned that a tentative deal has been brokered by Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to de-escalate the tense standoff between rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters and the Bureau of Land Management.

      Sources tell the I-Team that Sheriff Gillespie has negotiated a potential agreement in which the BLM would halt its roundup of Bundy’s cattle and withdraw its employees from the Gold Butte area.

      The BLM wants to proceed with the sale of the cattle already gathered during the roundup but is reportedly willing to share the revenue from the sale with Bundy.

      Sheriff Gillespie has been negotiating with Bundy behind the scenes for months and may have reached a tentative agreement Friday night, though Bundy insisted the sheriff come to his ranch to finalize the arrangement face-to-face.

      The two men agreed to meet this morning to discuss the agreement prior to a public announcement, which could come at 9 a.m. …”

      • Of course, Dingy Harry and Dirty Barry NOW need this off the front pages. Otherwise, people might continue to investigate their connections to the MONEY and the RED CHINESE COMMUNISTS profiting from OUR PUBLIC LANDS.

  10. The only threats to vote are for the dead people and their pets. 🙂

  11. WOW.. REID… ( your SUCH a fox ) more too read above…. ^ ^ ^

    • Reid’s House was built by developer Jim Rhodes (they all thought
    they’d make a killing in Seachlight), right Smack Dab in Tortoise Land.

    Coincidentally, Rhodes was also fined for illegal contributions to Reid. Rhodes later hired disgraced Erin Kenny for $16,000 a month, a Reid protege for Lieutenant Governor, who was caught taking bribes from Tittybar owner Mike Galardi of Cheetahs and did jail time. Reid’s other protege, Dario Herrera, also did jail for Tittybar bribes. What a nice crew, friends of Harry. Rhodes, Erin and Dario, all bribe-magnet Democrat friends of Reid.

    •Someone should ask How MANY Tortoises were Killed building a
    Four Lane SuperHighway to Harry Reid’s Land in Searchlight. Reid
    has positioned himself to be a beneficiary of owning the land entering Searchlight as a future bedroom community. Maybe he should be
    asked about his Desert Tortoise land in Arizona too. ……. O’

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hasn’t been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says “it’s not over.”

    Reid tells News4’s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said. …”

    Nope, but if those “American people” happen to be people from Mexico, Central or South America, then it’s FINE and dandy for them to “violate the law and then just walk away from it.” In fact, Sen. Reid and his friends like Obama will ENABLE them, give them free Obamaphones, Obamacare, EBT cards, and YOUR JOB.

    • Toldja. The entire goal was just to get the story off the Sunday shows. Now they’re going to find another, more surreptitious way to nudge their way to the same goal. Number one is to get the media meme going, which already is in effect, even if (or especially) on FOX News. The gummint is right. That’s the meme. Except they’re not right.

      “The executive director of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association says his sources inside the federal government warn that Washington’s weekend retreat in a dispute over grazing land in Nevada was only a move to distract attention and diffuse tensions, because a raid on the family’s ranch still is planned. …”

      Barry’s promised “civilian army” at work. ON YOUR DIME. 200 armed officers to round up Bundy’s trespass cows, but how many ARMED border agents rounding up TRESPASS ALIENS? Judge Napolitano says that the federal court is not empowered, nor is it the place, to decide on land disputes, which traditionally (and logically) belong in state courts. Otherwise, as with everything in the Obamanation, he and his peeps decide that what he and his peeps want is the law and that they are exempt from the law and the Constitution.

  19. Amidst all the diversions, this has gone unreported,
    Apparently, Baghdad is about to fall to Al-Qaeda. Unbelievable!
    The Iraqi army began buttressing its defense lines on April 12 to save parts of the capital city of Baghdad from the approaching danger of falling to al Qaeda’s Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Iraqi intelligence reports that terrorist forces have broken through into the city’s western outskirts and preparing to head out to other parts of the city of more than seven million and the Green Zone government headquarters.

    In addition to the lethal bombings and shootings which have reduced the country to misery, debkafile’s counter-terrorism sources describe a more insidious ISIS tactic of conquest: Armed al Qaeda fighters in brown military fatigues are going around Baghdad city quarters distributing candy to children. Notes attached to the packets invite their parents to attend “repentance” rites, which are really oaths of adherence to al Qaeda.


      “Militants have closed all gates of a Euphrates River dam they control in Iraq, blocking a major water source, a minister said on Monday, while violence killed 15 people.

      The latest unrest comes amid a protracted surge in nationwide bloodshed that has claimed more than 2,550 lives so far this year and sparked fears of Iraq slipping back into the all-out sectarian killings of 2006 and 2007.

      The unrest has been driven principally by widespread anger among the Sunni Arab minority over claims of mistreatment at the hands of the Shiite-led government and security forces, as well as by the civil war in neighbouring Syria.

      Militants have “completely closed the gates of the Fallujah dam since yesterday (Sunday) morning,” Water Resources Minister Muhanad al-Saadi said in a statement.

      The move blocks a major source of water for central and southern Iraq.

      The militants, who seized the dam several weeks ago, had previously cut the flow of water through the dam near the city of Fallujah, just a short drive west of Baghdad, but reopened it when water accumulated and caused the area to flood.

      In a sign of both the reach of anti-government fighters and the weakness of security forces, all of Fallujah and shifting parts of Anbar provincial capital Ramadi, to its west, have been out of government control since early January.

      The US embassy issued a statement Monday condemning “ongoing terrorist acts” by powerful jihadist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and the dam closure in particular. …”

      Gee, they sure don’t like to say al Qaeda, do they? “militants” “Sunni Arab minority”

      At least our embassy called them “jihadist” and decried “terrorist” acts.
