Random Thoughts and News for a Monday Morning

Michele Obama

Following are some random thoughts concerning issues in the news:

Whatever became of our girls in Nigeria? Their cause fell off the front pages fast, didn’t it? The girls are still in captivity, and now have been joined by others. Where’s Michelle Obama now? Off to California, on the taxpayers’ dime, to visit Malia, an aspiring filmmaker.

When “mass shooters” who happen to be white strike, the media always report how many guns were involved, the types of guns, how much ammo, what type ammo, and the source of the weapons, as well as whether or not the person had a permit or had legally purchased the weapon(s). Why don’t they do the same for inner-city shootings perpetrated (mostly) by “persons of color”? See here, here, and here for a reports about how at least 16 were killed and 82 were shot in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. How’s that strict gun control working out for the people of Chicago?

Barack Obama is a “black” man but Harry Reid thinks that the Honorable Justice Clarence Thomas is “white”. Is he color blind? If only. Poor Harry, he just can’t get the talking points right.

Somehow Obama “tweets” without even knowing what he tweets. Turns out, Obama’s Twitter account is run by Organizing for America, and he doesn’t even read what’s being sent out in his name. A do-nothing (but golf), know-nothing (but how to divide) president.

If the unaccompanied illegal alien children are escaping from “drug violence” in the villages and cities of Central America, then why can’t they find refuge closer to home than the USA? One would think they’d prefer a country where the inhabitants speak the same language they do. Why won’t their fellow Latin Americans take them in? Why isn’t there a similar migration of people from inner-city Chicago to Canada or Mexico or even Guatemala? One would think that the children (and parents) in Chicago would similarly want to escape the drug violence extant in that city, as we saw with the multiple murders and shootings that took place over the Fourth of July weekend. Chicago victims of drug violence should look for refuge in the Hyde Park neighborhood. There’s an empty mansion there; it even has a wine cellar where they can drown their sorrows.

Illinois has a new law designed to give adoptees access to information about their biological families. If only …

A prostitute (and exotic dancer) has been charged in the heroin overdose death of Google executive Forrest Timothy Hayes (age 51). Alix Tichelman (age 26) allegedly injected Hayes with the drug. Police say Tichelman is a fetish model and a high-end prostitute, who may have been involved in a similar incident that led to the death of “Dean Riopelle, 53, lead singer of the raunchy shock-rock band the Impotent Sea Snakes and owner of Atlanta’s hip and trendy Masquerade Club.” Alix was into satanism, too. Hayes “was part of Google’s highly secretive division responsible for robot cars and Google Glass” and formerly was senior director of worldwide operations for Apple. Hayes, married for 17 years, had five children. How can anyone explain this situation to them? Brave New World.

Ray Nagin, former mayor of the “Chocolate City” of New Orleans, is headed for ten hard years in the “Chocolate Big House” of Louisiana.

The EPA is trying to explain its 88-page new water rules (in the Federal Register, the Clean Water Act) which include regulating “most seasonal and rain-dependent streams.”  The rules are open to public comment. The Oregon man who’s going to jail simply for storing rain water may have a word or two to add, even though he’s being sentenced under state laws.

The Feds are going to stop buying bonds in October. Hmm. Do they want to screw up the economy for the 2014 election and just in time for the 2016 election, figuring that if the Republicans take the Senate in November, the Democrats can then blame the crummy economy on the Republican-controlled House and Senate? Nah!

Claire McCaskill is astounded that 41% of the colleges that responded to her survey about campus rape haven’t investigated a rape in 5 years. She can’t believe this, because a government study (during the OBAMA administration, of course) said that one in five female undergrads reported being a victim of “attempted or completed sexual violence during college.” So the colleges must be liars. Does it occur to her that there are loopholes in that survey big enough to drive one of Obama’s motorcades through?

What is “attempted” sexual “violence?” If it happened “during college,” is it possible that it didn’t happen ON campus, so maybe there’s nothing for the university to investigate? Did the undergrads report the “attempted or completed sexual violence” TO the campus authorities for investigation (not to mention the police) when these attempted or completed incidents happened?

In some progressive views, if a woman has sex while intoxicated, then it’s always rape. One might as well say that any sex that occurs on weekends is rape. Todd Akin lost a political career because he dared to use the phrase “legitimate rape.” No wonder some young men now videotape every sexual encounter! Claire’s just trying to re-up the so-called “War on Women” to gin up the Democrat base.

Last but certainly not least, one of our faithful commenters, Papoose, alerted us to a bill that recently passed the House on a voice vote: the bill reauthorizes and amends the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Act of 2007.  [emphasis added to quotes] This Act

currently mandates the collection of blood samples from every newborn baby by heel prick. The blood samples are then screened for diseases.  

Though many states provide for disposing of the samples after testing, the bill that was just approved by the House would collect each newborn’s DNA in federal databases for subsequent medical research and, in Rhode Island, for the purpose of tracking the child’s school progress

A critical aspect of both the existing law and the reauthorized version, which extends the measure until 2018, is that neither requires the informed consent of parents for the DNA data collection. 

If this doesn’t send chills up your spine, then what will? This link goes to a website that explains more about these chilling government intrusions.

Recently, Facebook experimented on its users by manipulating their emotions and then allowing researchers to “study” their reactions, all without the subjects’ informed consent.

[T]he federal Common Rule … regulates federally-funded research on human subjects. The Common Rule requires as a general matter (subject to some exceptions) that the subjects of research provide informed consent. The researchers must get the approval of an institutional review boards (IRB). Because the researchers involved not just a person at Facebook, but also academics at Cornell and U.C. San Francisco, the academics did seek IRB approval, but that was granted based on the use of the data, not on the way it was collected.

Informed consent, required for research and in the healthcare context, is one of the strongest forms of consent the law requires. It is not enough simply to fail to check a box or fail to opt out. People must be informed of the risks and benefits and affirmatively agree.

If it’s considered outrageous that researchers didn’t obtain informed consent from subjects when they manipulated their emotions and then examined their subsequent postings on social media, then consider how much more egregious it is when the raw data becomes the DNA of your children combined with their school records and medical histories–information that you aren’t allowed to access, but which government bureaucrats and private “researchers” can and will.

That’s in Obamacare, too: Digitized medical records. Required. Makes it easier for the government “researchers” and their cronies in the private sector to access.

One has to wonder why the government is interested in “emotional contagion” and how social media can be utilized to spread it by manipulating the “news feed”. The possible answers that come to mind are not comforting.

After, we’re living in a country where the IRS is under investigation for using its power to target ordinary citizens for their political views. We’re living in a country where the government is, via the NSA, amassing enormous amounts of data about your personal communications and storing them in a huge complex in Utah.

With all that information about every one of us, an all-powerful, all-knowing government (Big Brother) will be able to control anyone and everyone.

There used to be such things as privacy, morality, ethics, and respect for personal sovereignty. No more. Welcome to the Obamanation.

Welcome to Big Brother’s Brave New World.

  1. So the IRS admits that it can’t do its job, either fairly or in a timely fashion, so they’re just going to rubber stamp most of the applications they get for not-for-profit status! Here’s an idea: Let’s just fire Koskinen and DISBAND the IRS. How much money will that save? http://time.com/2979612/irs-scandal-tax-exempt-tea-party-political-groups-john-koskinen/

  2. For once, I’m just NOT sayin’:

    Mooch was encouraging Latinos to just pack up their families and come here, since they “can’t wait” for Congress. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/11/Michelle-Obama-to-Latinos-We-Can-t-Wait-For-Congress-to-Fix-Immigration

  3. http://www.theminorityreportblog.com/2014/07/14/video-paul-rodriguez-shocks-cnns-don-lemon-with-comments-about-illegal-aliens/

    ” It wasn’t supposed to go this way. Or so CNN’s Don Lemon must have thought when he had Mexican-American comedian Paul Rodriguez on his CNN Tonight show on Wednesday.

    Perhaps Lemon was expecting the standard liberal answers from Rodriguez about what to do with the illegal children flooding across the border from Central American countries. Instead, Rodriguez shocked him as in can see in this video (and after the jump) with an answer that took him completely by surprise. …”

    Transcript at the link. We are NOT “divided” according to Rodriguez. I agree that it’s beginning to look that way!

  4. Was in Denver for a bit recently. One night Obama was there! Oh joy! Noticed on the local news it mentioned three top Dems would not be attending the fundraiser The O was in town for. A couple of nights later we went to the Brazilian Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao and were told a personal story by the head hostess. She said President Obama was walking alone by the restaurant so she ran out and said hello and brazenly put a card (was unsure if her personal card or the restaurant’s) in his top pocket. The prez’s reaction? “You aren’t slipping me your telephone number are you?” The fan commented that it must have drove the secret service nuts the way he was casually walking down the street and peering into places and that she put something in his pocket.

    Hmmmmmm. How the hell, with the Secret Service, does a citizen be able to run out a building and up to the president and then touch him? I asked questions to get an idea how spontaneous this really was and it appeared, according to my radar, to be a genuine spontaneous moment by this lady. But I have been duped a time or two in my life. The few in the restaurant listening to her story were bored and did not engage her in conversation. Two sentences into the story and backs were turned to her. It made my queries and efforts to get her to talk more look like I was an Obot. Surreal.

    • Me. Hoot insists she had to be a plant as otherwise she would have been shot. Ya think?

    • Who knows, What a Hoot? I read in a couple stories that Barry says “the bear is loose,” meaning that he’s tired of being restricted (like when he reminisced about walking free around Austin recently) and that he planned to do stuff like this. One has to wonder if it’s a set up for something bigger. You know, like to get sympathy and outrage? Some kind of false flag to gin up the base and get the blacks back on his side and his poll numbers up? Find a “common enemy” like some crazed Tea Partying, Nazi, white guy? Get my drift? Yes, how does the Secret Service allow this? It’s not like he can just order them to back off. They can’t. It’s their job and he is supposed to be kept safe and secure no matter what he wants.

      • The dems we were Ruth did not say s word or show enthusiasm about him being in town. In fact, they never mentioned it. They did say they are no longer into anything political and don’t read or think or talk it anymore. These are people that lived dem to the fullest and always involved at all levels.

  5. I had two women from the Jehovah’s Witnesses stop by today, to drop off some brochure. It was entitled, “A World Government”
    Why do we need one?
    Is it possible?
    Who is qualified to rule?

    Hear the answers at a free public event.
    This is your invitation.

  6. Random Thoughts

    This is what they are willing to share. Can you imagine what they aren’t?

    • At this link there is a “related programs”link that takes you to the White House site… following that, you get this report.

      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/07/30/govt-knows-best-white-house-creates-nudge-squad-to-shape-behavior/

      Of course, Cass Sunstein is involved.

      Here’s the Proposal/ Document
      Strengthening Federal Capacity for Behavioral Insights

      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/interactive/2013/07/30/behavioral-insights-team-document/

      Starting to think they have a plan for the illegal foreign squatters.

      • We were onto that “nudge squad” from the beginning. So maybe this is why Facebook needs to do studies that explain how to manipulate emotions via the news feed and then force people to coalesce around some idea or another. Mooch tries to control what we all eat and what our kids eat. I heard on the radio that some place banned Chick-fil-A sandwiches (that were sold with profits going to charity) because Mooch thinks there’re too many calories and too much salt in them. At the same time, she was just at an event where the hosts said Mooch “loved the hash browns.” Let them eat brown rice cakes. She’ll take the white potatoes fried in grease.

        • Remember the good old days when EVERYBODY got outraged by the idea that companies MIGHT, just might, put “subliminal messages” into TV ads?

          • http://www.zdnet.com/gchqs-dark-arts-leaked-leaked-documents-reveal-online-manipulation-facebook-and-youtube-snooping-7000031598/

            “A fresh set of documents leaked by Edward Snowden show how the UK intelligence agency can manipulate online polls and debates, spread messages, snoop on YouTube and track Facebook users. GCHQ has developed a toolkit of software programs used to manipulate online traffic, infiltrate users’ computers and spread select messages across social media sites including Facebook and YouTube.

            The UK spy agency’s dark arts were revealed in documents first published by The Intercept, and each piece of software is described in a wiki document written up by GCHQ’s Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG). The document, which reads like a software inventory, calls the tools part of the agency’s “weaponised capability.”

            Some of the most interesting capabilities of the tools on the list include the ability to seed the web with false information — such as tweaking the results of online polls — inflating pageview counts, censoring video content deemed “extremist” and the use of psychological manipulation on targets — something similar to a research project conducted with Facebook’s approval, which resulted in heavy criticism and outrage levied at the social media site. …”

            Isn’t it weird? I talked about that Facebook research and up pops this story about the UK spy agencies doing this, too.

    • http://www.bus.emory.edu/prietula/old-index.html of which you know who was an alumni as well as all the tons of DARPA research at Stanford……hmmm….remember all his collaborative research at both schools??????

  7. http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/u-n-seeking-to-intervene-in-u-s-border-crisis/

    We could have predicted this:

    ” Representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHRC, are “intensely discussing in meetings” the possibility of extending U.N. protection to the thousands of Central Americans crossing the U.S. border with Mexico illegally by defining them as “refugees” who are seeking asylum from political and domestic violence in their home nations, WND has confirmed.

    Officials privy to the U.N. discussions have explained to WND it’s “a tricky situation,” because the Central American immigrants are not part of any group the U.N. has designated as victims of political or religious persecution.

    A UNHCR official confirmed Monday to WND via email that a 10-nation meeting in Nicaragua of ministers of the interior from the U.S., Mexico and various Central American countries was held Thursday and Friday.

    The ministers, according to preliminary reports obtained by WND, concluded the Central American illegal aliens are “refugees” deserving international protection under the auspices of the U.N. as they seek asylum in the U.S. The ministers cited the U.N.’s 30-year-old declaration on the rights of refugees. …”

    My suggestion is that since these 10 nations believe these are refugees worthy of protection, then ALL 10 nations can take them in.

    • That would be my sentiments exactly too MIRI….let other countries offer to take them…without our paying for it….which the latter part is unlikely…we pay every time some other country bats an eye…buy hey, send em elsewhere and see how quickly the coming over the border subsides; I wonder.

  8. Same song, second verse: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2692218/Another-recycled-hard-drive-Former-Lois-Lerner-deputy-prosecuted-fundraising-Democrats-job-FEC-destroyed-evidence.html

    “Another ‘recycled’ hard drive: Former Lois Lerner deputy can’t be prosecuted for fundraising for Democrats on the job because the FEC destroyed the evidence

    April Sands was a Federal Election Commission lawyer before she resigned this year and accepted a ban on holding government jobs until 2016

    She was former IRS official Lois Lerner’s deputy when she was at the FEC

    Like the allegations against Lerner, Sands admitted violating the Hatch Act, which prohibits government workers from advocating for candidates

    And as seems to be the case with Lerner, Sands escaped prosecution because her hard drive mysteriously ‘crashed’ and was recycled

    She was known as ‘Obama girl’ in her office, and a colleague recalled how she boasted that Obama’s 2012 campaign would hire her away …”

    So because they DESTROYED the evidence of her alleged crime, she can’t be prosecuted. I wonder if Lois knew this outcome? Ya think?

  9. http://www.ijreview.com/2014/07/156975-group-center-irs-scandal-never-interviewed-fbi-investigators/

    “No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht.

    This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

    When I raised Holder’s assertion to Engelbrecht Monday morning during an interview on WMAL radio in Washington, DC, I asked her what her involvement and experience has been with the FBI and the DOJ, considering Holder’s claim that they were doing a “good and professional job” investigating the IRS scandal. …”

    These so-called but nonexistent “investigations” exist ONLY to preclude the courts or anybody else from doing their own investigation. It’s to run out the clock.

  10. Seems right Miri let them take the refugees. 🙂

  11. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07/suspect-in-benghazi-attack-found-dead-in-eastern-libya/#disqus_thread

    Another for the dead pool who is conveniently now dead?

    “Faraj al-Shibli, who was suspected of involvement in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has been found dead, a Libyan source and locals in the town of Marj said.

    Al-Shibli, whose name is also spelled Chalabi, was last seen being detained by a local militia in Marj two days ago, a Libyan source said.

    It is unclear what happened to al-Shibli since then, but his body was found Monday in the eastern Libyan town of Marj.

    Locals in Marj also confirmed that al-Shibli’s body was found Monday.”

  12. IF U SEE something..SAY.. something! THE WORST of the WORST
    OBAMA ….WINS HANDS DOWN….. the WORST USURPER EVER!
    trying 2 PLAY.. BIG SHOT.. ON OUR MILLIONS!!! $$$ STOP HIM!

    http://www.businessinsider.com/cheney-obama-is-the-worst-president-of-my-lifetime-2014-7

    • I figure Obama has had his guys scope out areas where people are still dumb enough to still think Obama’s the “man”, otherwise can you just imagine what people would like to be saying to O everyplace he goes….like the black girl who’s complaining big time about all this illegal alien stuff, and asking Obama what about helping the poor kids in this town….this country? I expect Obama’s had his people out to make sure none of this happens..that’s why he’s bumping fists and acting all chummy down to earth.. so home boyish , YUCK,!”Yeah Right”.

  13. “What are you doing, sittin’ on your azz whistling Dixie? Do some
    goddamn work for a change!”

    ~ My eccentric co-worker ~ by MindsOfMongoose July 10, 2008

  14. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07/shock-video-illegals-arrive-in-bus-and-shop-at-walmart-with-ebt-cards/

    Busloads of illegal aliens brought to a Walmart so they can shop with taxpayer-supplied EBT cards.

    • This busload may be illegal or not and may or may not be part of the child trafficking……these school buses are common in rural areas to pick corn tassles, pick bugs, and walk the fields for whatever to do with the crops. The jobs used to go to fourteen through eighteen year citizens and they were willing to to it for the summer as paid pretty good and lots of hours. Good summer job. Anyways, posting as part of the child trafficking might not be factual. First off the school bus does not have the windows covered and it is, well, a school bus.

      • How do they get around the child labor laws, letting 14-year-olds pick corn tassels? I remember a story a few years back about some young teens who were accidentally sprayed with chemicals by a crop duster and at the time I wondered why 13-year-olds were working in fields. Do they get a dispensation from the law?

        • I am not sure. I know some of my kids worked on dairy farms when 13-14 years old but they were 1099 pay and set up as own business providing chore service. They had to file schedule C profit and loss or we could claim their income. But that was awhile ago so things may have changed. I think fourteen year olds can work during the summer in agriculture. But don’t quote me.

          • You’re probably right because the news stories I read about the kids being crop-dusted didn’t mention them being there illegally.

  15. Harry Reid says “the border is secure.” http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/212328-reid-southern-border-is-secure

    WHAT is Harry smoking?

  16. YEP…. pass that “CRACK PIE”…. around a FEW more TIMES!!!!!

    • That’s interesting. The presidents say they want their children back. So, please, send them back like little Elian. Remember him?

  17. Here we go again

    If you click on the photo at this site you can see it full screen.

    Trying to post this in the neighborhood and caused a bunch a problems with my pc. Wonder why?

      • OMG, I see. The militarized police called up. Guess we’d better get used to it. How long before we hear the alleged perp has Asperger’s? He’s in his socks but I see no blood. Photo 16. Dad has a different shirt. What’s with those shoes? Moved to that area only 2 years ago. In real estate.

        • Ok. Ignore the language in this video and just explain to me WHY they don’t have the lights on top the police cars ON: https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=sdXt4NzmJcc&hd=1 (Just cut and paste it back together.) The obots are attacking those who question this. I had to laugh out loud multiple times at the narrator’s language because it’s just so apt and funny, although the alleged incident is NOT funny and that they think sheeple are so stupid is not funny, either. Not by a long shot–no pun intended. We’re to believe that this man just allegedly, possibly, murdered 6 people after shooting 7, in cold blood, and this is how they “apprehend” him? When he pulls into a subdivision in order to trap himself in a cul-de-sac, pay careful attention to how deserted that entire neighborhood seems to be.

          • So did I, Miri.( LOL at the guy narrating).

            I’m so sick of seeing the UN bogus-potus -logo blue in these blockbusters. I started noticing it with the nitwit muslamic Bergdahl dad – his tie.

            I used to love turquoise and now it gives me goosebumps.

            This story does NOT make sense at all. No way.

            Yeah, we’re not telling you so kill me. This way I won’t be able to warn my sister that she’s being stalked by her maniac ex husband. Its all tooooo much. Just moved there. California, Utah. Texas….yeah mmmhhmmmm.

            Bogus photos. Really? Why?

            • Wow. I didn’t even notice the ubiquitous UN turquoise, but now that you mention it … I did notice the color-matched outfits, though. Now there’s time to shop for turquoise nail polish.

              Comes with a ready made slogan: “Stay strong.” What a coincidence. Like “Boston strong.” And “Live strong.”

              Ok. On this NBC (where else?) video, there is a bandage seen on the middle finger of her left hand. It is just SO surreal. The smiling, I mean.

              There are even photos/video of her traveling in a car, standing up with half her body outside the sun roof, waving and smiling, like a celebrity. Like Miss America in a July Fourth Parade. I REALLY don’t know what to make of this, but it sure is unsettling and frightening. People point out that the alleged killer was the symbolic 33 years old. Her symbolic gesture for those who want to stay strong is putting her hand in such a way as to make HORNS. Then there are the Harry Potter quotes. It’s just too much. As with Sandy Hook, there is a plethora of “friends” of the parents coming out to speak, all smiles and happy reminiscences. I don’t get it. I simply don’t.

              I’ve been skimming stories about the funeral and nearly every one makes it a point to say, with little variation, that she “finally” broke down in tears. It’s almost as if, like with Obama, when something is pointed out in the blogosphere, then that has to be “corrected” and refuted. Know what I mean?

              • I noticed the nail polish, too! I saw this on Saturday at the daily ,ail and it bugged me all day long. ~ In the link above with the photos, there’s one that with a UN bogus-potus-logo blue ribbon being tied around a tree.

                Thinking randomly, is this going to be the new lapel ribbon for gun control?

                Also, did you see the “Stay Strong” poster they made of her?

                Yeah, she was critically wounded with a graze to her head at 3pm one day and she’s “turning on the lights” 72 hours later.

                At the funeral, who is her unidentified ‘twin’ consoling her? Where’s the sister/ aunt now that the murderous maniac is sedated behind bars? Did she show up for the private services?

                • OMG, Papoose, I didn’t notice any UN logo in the stuff tied around the tree. Now I have to go looking for that. I’ve been updating/adding to my previous comment, in case you wonder why it’s getting longer and longer. I expect you’re right and that shortly (if not already) we’re going to see Pelosi on the House floor with her lovely turquoise ribbon and maybe (can we get in on the ground floor?) a rubberized bracelet in turquoise, like the Live Strong yeller bracelets. I didn’t see the poster yet. I wondered, too, who that unidentified twin is. She looks more like her than her own siblings. I saw on one of the UK webpages that the aunt in question showed up, so perhaps she’s the ex of the alleged perp. Then again, I wondered if somebody has sister wives.

                  This poster? http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/07/14/article-2692030-1FA4870900000578-293_634x756.jpg

                  You’d think there would have been more important things to do after such an appalling and unexpected tragedy than all this MARKETING. How quickly somebody got the ribbons and balloons and posters and mottoes and nail polish, etc. Did they hire a public relations firm as well as a funeral director? T-shirts, too!

                  Just a few dumb questions here: Did they release the 911 call? Did anybody ask for it? Did they or will they release the autopsies or death certificates?

                  • Yep. Can you believe that? They think we’re stupid. A pop art poster within 72 hours!

                    I wouldn’t doubt for a second that the “nudge” committee is involved in this.
                    I read late this afternoon at weasel zippers that some nutty professor is “suggesting” that human beings get reprogrammed genetically to become 15 cms (?) smaller so to reduce the carbon footprint by 25% and also, to give us something like a nicotine patch so to be repulsed by a steak on a grill/ abhor the thought of a cheeseburger… they want farmers and ranchers out of business. hmmmm. monsanto? parking garage stacked farms? lab food shopping? soylent green?

                    Sick to say, but I don’t believe the story about the plane being blown up today. My brain won’t let me.

                  • There wasn’t any UN stuff at all. Sorry for the confusion. I am talking about that UN blue in the bogus potus logo. It corrupts America’s red, white and blue. Blue as in the Field on our flag which stands for loyalty, I think.

                    That “UN blue” is cropping up everywhere these days. The ribbon they tied around the tree ^ is that shade. And the lapel ribbons are that shade. Bergdahl’s father’s tie was that color. And a few other places that I can’t recall right now.

                    I think its shocking that that young lady was on a stage giving a well thought out speech with all the balloons, the Harry Potter references… that hand signal reminded me of Sandy Hook. (they had hands everywhere)… Her arm raised was as if there was some kind of victory. I don’t know it seems to me she “survived” so to begin a nudge campaign for children and teens… she came across as an actor…

                    The ‘maybe aunt’ looked a little to young be a mother of 4 so I discounted it. But maybe grief does that to some people. She’s here in another photshopped picture with children’s faces blurred out.

                    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2693491/I-cried-tears-felt-like-blood-Mother-lost-three-daughters-tragic-house-fire-writes-open-letter-support-Houston-shooting-survivor-Cassidy-Stay.html

                    That family photo on the swing did it for me. In an instant. The mother’s arm coming out of the child’s sleeve and the splicing at the tree. The swing and chains don’t align, etc.

                    We’ve been here before. Many times now…

                    • I hadn’t thought about the blue of Bergdahl’s dads tie or the blue in O. logo. Dang…you’re right. The girl’s grandad reminded her to say the Harry Potter thing or so it seemed….which was weird to me. Even the poster that ‘s definitely weird, and why a ring on her finger that makes the sign. and notice the prevalence of the larger (one eye) eye in the poster.

                    • Oh, ok. I’m easily confused, especially these days, living in the Obamanation. You ARE correct and it never did occur to me that Barry uses the WRONG shade of blue in his logo. NOT the blue of the good old Red, White, and BLUE. UN blue. If he’s loyal, it’s to them and not to the USA. It’s all subliminal (except to those with eyes to see and a mind to understand what’s being done to us). OMG, I forgot all about how the hand gesture was seen in relation to SH, too. And there’s a UTAH connection there, too. Same with that burning man thing. I’d seen that at FOTM earlier this week and forgot to mention it. More photos here. btw, the creature in the Maurice Sendak story has horns, of course.

                    • and there’s alway three names for the killer….and LEE for a middle name , well, how apprapo assassinated(shot in back of head). I was just looking for a bumble bee symbol like at Sandy Hook . The funeral arrangements so perfectly full of the crapy little symbols….the .
                      Did anyone ever come across or remember the big dark headed young lady killed at Sandy Hook….who I had found had about three different names and all her work relate friends on her linked business sites were funeral director type folks and event planners ect. and florists? Remember that…….there’s video out there that shows she (the dead girl of Sandy Hook) was also one of the large ladies at the Boston Marathon bombing. Sure looked believable to me. I was looking to see if she showed up in this scenario somewhere. Hey and the kid on end of family photo looks a lot like one of the kids from Sandy H. Probably just coincidence.

                    • The poster wasn’t drawn by the person that UK story says drew it. Instead, it was drawn by someone named Tommy S. Norton. At least, that’s what is implied at this site. The park bench is apparently at Forest Oaks Swim and Racquet Club. Photos there and a question about the guy who drew the poster.

                    • And there’s always a Forrest or an Oak tree reference.

    • I thought that maybe I was the only one who had those thoughts about this person who “stay”ed so “strong”. It was surreal, I’m sorry, watching her on TV only days after 6 members of her immediate family were allegedly murdered in cold blood. Quoting Harry Potter, of all things. btw, do you see a wound? It’s supposed to have fractured her skull, but there she is on TV. That family pic looks joined right in the middle. The tree runs through Mom’s shoulder. Has its own wiki page already and, inexplicably, they say she had a finger amputated when she was shot in the back of the head, was in the hospital in critical condition, but was out two days later and there she was on TV. Looks like all fingers intact, but maybe I’m just seeing things that aren’t there. Of course, if there is a missing part of a digit, you can’t see it on the family portrait, either, seeing as how she’s holding her hands.

      • http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/07/11/ronald_lee_haskell_charged_how_did_a_man_previously_arrested_for_domestic.html

        They waste little time in capitalizing.

        “… means that we need more expansive gun laws. …” That’s the only part that’s pertinent to my point.

      • Miri, look at the little girl sitting on the mother’s lap. Check out her arms.

        The whole entire photo is a farce. You can view it in full screen at the daily mail link I posted.

        The ole “everybody on the bench” trick is obvious with this swing too,

        Not only is it unaligned and lopsided, it’s suspended from that rinky-dink tree.

        • what photo are you referring to Papoose????

        • I know. It does remind me of the Sandy Hook photos. That little girl’s right arm is extremely weird. Is she a contortionist? And then Mom’s right arm is RATHER too big, wouldn’t you say? Ditto for her right leg. Have you ever seen such a WIDE hanging swing?

          • http://www.click2houston.com/news/visitation-held-for-stay-family-members-killed-during-mass-shooting/26959284

            There’s another version of the photo within the video at that link. Again, one hand placed strategically over the other. Closed caskets. Just photos of the victims on the top of the caskets. There will be two funerals–one private, one public. Public invited in for the “visitation” after this “unimaginable” crime. The church is going to cover the bench where that photo was taken with ribbons during the memorial service. The bench is in the family’s “neighborhood”. That story again says she lost “part of a finger.” Which hand? I saw no bandages. An iconic symbol to indicate this victim and her new cause. Haven’t we seen Mooch make that sign?

            http://www.click2houston.com/news/suspected-mass-shooter-has-history-of-stealing-guns/26953112

            “Sheriff’s investigators are trying to piece together the series of events that led to murder suspect Ronald Lee Haskell Jr. getting the gun he allegedly used to murder six members of the Stay family in Spring last week.

            The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) traced the Springfield X D 9mm gun to a 2007 purchase in Utah. Someone other than Haskell purchased the gun.

            A gun sale is recorded and the existence of the record is noted with the federal government. The ATF can only find out who the gun was initially sold to by calling the licensed gun dealer and inquiring. If a gun is sold to another person after its initial sale, there may be no record. Private gun sales are not required to be recorded. [There’s your meme and agenda.] …”

            This goes along with one of the things I asked in this post: WHY do they go to such an extent to TRACE the gun(s) used in these crimes allegedly committed by WHITES but you don’t see (or at least hear about) the freaking ATF tracing the source of EVERY GUN used to murder people in inner cities, such as Chicago? WHY IS THAT? Do you think there’s an agenda here and that we’re being manipulated via “emotional contagion” (another issue in this post) as Barry sprints to the finish line? It’s amazing how things synchronize, isn’t it? All coincidence, we’re supposed to believe.

          • the writers for these stories somehow seem to exude the same touchy feely dripping off the pages kind of journalism as SH too. makes me feel like I’m getting “snowed”.

            • my post was in reference to the stay family…it appears out of place.

            • alfy, I hadn’t even heard of this “massacre” UNTIL the evening news featured the “survivor” at the press conference or whatever that was. Both my husband and I couldn’t believe what we were supposed to be seeing–that this girl was up there, seeming giddy, as if enjoying the spotlight and celebrity when, we were being told, she just watched her entire family (parents and four siblings) shot “execution style”, with herself having suffered a fractured skull from a bullet as well as loss of part of a finger. Does that pass the test for plausible reality? If it does, then stop the world because I don’t belong here. I can’t even get over the “normal” death of my own parents, decades ago. What are we supposed to think? That this is some manifestation of shock? If so, then I’d like to hear a legitimate and respected psychiatrist explain it to me, because I am puzzled, to say the least. Then I see the video of the so-called chase and apprehension. I could have stopped that guy. What really cinched it was the cops just standing there out in the open when they should have expected the perp to be armed and certainly dangerous. We are being snowed and the actors in this play don’t deserve any Oscars.

          • They did, but maybe it’s there, on the back. btw, wouldn’t you expect someone who was shot in the head and got a fracture and head wound to have hair shaved off and at least a bandage of some kind? (Speaking of which–in the family photo on the swing, why does the sister in the middle look like part of her head is shaved?)

            Will we see crime scene photos? I’ve already noticed that the guy had no visible blood on his clothing. At least I didn’t see any and in the arrest photos, he’s without at least one shoe. I saw a car chase on TV just days ago, after this Texas thing. It was a bank robbery and the police cars, as expected, had sirens and lights and were going FAST. They shot one of the hostages (the cops did) when they opened fire and riddled the escaping perps’ SUV with bullets. Compare that to the “chase” and the end result in Texas, where there were NO innocent hostages in the car with him.

            • If you were swat or police would you ram the guys car who’s supposedly sitting there with a gun to his head? HO, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!!!!

            • As usual, the “official” story differs from details in subsequent stories and nothing hangs together. We’re told that ALL the victims were tied up with their hands behind their backs. So how, then, did the survivor get one finger on the back of her skull in order to deflect the bullet with a finger that was “amputated” but which is still there? Is she a contortionist, too? And the uncle didn’t notice that finger/hand at the time he shot her?

          • And put adhesive tape in the middle of her Harry Potter glasses.

      Yeah, it was very painful for all the young men who died horrible deaths in the wilderness for their black brethren and their families, too, that were left fatherless to struggle and starve.

  20. OMG, I’m loving on this polar vortex!!!! Hope the weather’s nice wherever you are today.

  21. In a similar vein to the “lost” Lerner emails, here’s a story that is truly news:
    http://www.coachisright.com/fbi-still-trial-lost-evidence-oklahoma-city-bombing/

    “Though few are aware of it, on July 28th trial will be held in the Salt Lake City courtroom of Federal Judge Clark Waddoups to resolve the issue and disposition of video footage taken by surveillance cameras mounted on the Alfred P. Murrah building just before 9:02 A.M. April 19, 1995—the very moment of the Oklahoma City bombing. Plaintiff and Attorney Jesse Trentadue has spent years trying to obtain that footage from the FBI via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) filings. The Bureau admits the video’s existence, but claims both the cameras and video to have somehow been “lost.”

    Trentadue has also demanded the FBI turn over video from 20 additional surveillance cameras mounted on buildings in the Murrah’s vicinity. After he prevailed in a lawsuit, the FBI at last provided Trentadue the video produced by these cameras. But Trentadue found the video from each camera had been meticulously edited, second by second, in order to conceal both the specific path taken by the truck and perhaps a view of its occupants as they left the scene.

    According to a Secret Service timeline, “…a witness to the explosion named Mr. Grossman claimed to have seen a pale yellow Mercury car with a Ryder truck behind it pulling up to the Federal Building. Mr. Grossman further claimed to have seen a woman on the corner waving to the truck.” “ATSAIC McNally noted that this fact is significant due to the fact that the security video shows the Ryder truck pulling up to the Federal Building and then pausing (7-10 seconds) before resuming into a slot in front of the building. It is speculated that the woman was signaling the truck when a slot became available.”

    Clearly the federal government does NOT want the American public to know who exited the Ryder truck, the identity and possible part played by the woman on the corner, or whether any or all might have driven away in the Mercury. Yet it’s a safe bet our government already HAS the answers to these questions, having obtained them, of course, from the videos!…”

    • As an Oklahoman, I can tell you that the official OKC bombing story is all pure BS. Start checking into the background of then Gov. Keating and the head of the OKC FBI. Also look into the head of NORAD who was at Tinker. All ATF were told not to go in to work that day! ALL OF THEM!!!! Not one was in the building! Many witnesses have alternate details of the events. VERY EVIL PEOPLE and they are most likely behind the FRAUD in the WH as well! Most people from OK are the salt of the earth, but we have much EVIL which is lurking here. The stench is overwhelming!

  22. That Baptist connected group is getting a ton of money from Barry to buy a RESORT to house the UACs in: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07/feds-to-open-50-million-resort-hotel-for-illegal-children-complete-with-tennis-courts-sauna-pools/

    NOT MAKING IT UP. In the meantime, OUR homeless live under highway overpasses and sleep on grates outside CHURCHES in Washington DC.

    • UPDATE: Gateway Pundit says that the publicity on Drudge (and his own blog, surely) caused the Baptists to change their mind about this one. The optics, you know.

  23. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/16/obama-may-be-misreading-2008-deportation-law-repor/

    Yeah, well, what I said, and I’m not even a lawyer:

    ” … Jon Feere, legal policy analyst at the center, said that 2008 law applied only to unaccompanied minors who don’t have a parent or guardian already in the U.S. — a situation he said doesn’t apply to “a significant majority” of the children now jumping the border.

    And even when the 2008 law, designed to combat human trafficking, is triggered, it allows the government to continue to hold the children in “exceptional circumstances.”

    “Since there is little evidence to suggest that illegal immigrant children currently arriving at the U.S. border are victims of trafficking, and since few can be described as ‘unaccompanied alien children’ under federal law, the 2008 trafficking law has limited applicability to the current border surge,” Mr. Feere says in the new report. “Accordingly, the Obama administration should be limiting its use of the law where possible.” …

    Mr. Feere says the law only applies to children who don’t have a parent or guardian in the U.S., and he said data suggests most of the children do have close relatives who qualify, so they can be held.

    He also said that while the children are often being smuggled, there’s little evidence the children are being trafficked against their wishes. Rather, they and their families are usually paying smugglers to help them on their journey, which means they shouldn’t qualify for trafficking protections. …”

    Yeah, DUH. But we know that the spirit as well as the LETTER of the law, not to mention the TRUTH, mean NOTHING to Barry. He will use ANY excuse, no matter how lame or inapplicable, to “justify” himself doing what he wants to do, which is to DESTROY OUR COUNTRY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, IN ORDER TO “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” IT.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/07/16/Exclusive-Released-Alien-from-Border-Crisis-Arrested-For-Alleged-Murder-Kidnapping-in-Texas

    “LUBBOCK, Texas—An illegal immigrant who was released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear has been arrested for the alleged murder of a woman and kidnapping of children on U.S. soil. The alleged crimes occurred after the man was released.

    The man, Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas, entered the U.S. illegally with children and turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol agents. He was processed and released, as are all illegal immigrants who come as unaccompanied minors or incomplete family units from Central America. The alien is from Honduras.

    The arrest was first reported by the Associated Press (AP), but Breitbart Texas has exclusively confirmed that the man was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.

    A U.S. Border Patrol source who spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity provided Breitbart Texas with the alien registration number for the man, and the event number for the man’s apprehension. He was processed in the McAllen station of the U.S. Border Patrol. The alien’s registration number is 202027386. The event number for his apprehension is MCS14061487. The “MCS” designates the McAllen station, the “1406” designates that the man was apprehended in June of 2014. A separate Border Patrol source confirmed that the man was apprehended on June 26, 2014 with two children he claimed were his own. He told U.S. authorities he had family in Metairie, Louisiana.

    The AP identified the illegal alien as a “suburban New Orleans man” who faces a second-degree murder charge after his girlfriend was found bludgeoned to death in a bathtub in Louisiana. The man was arrested in a Katy, Texas trailer park with three children. It is unclear if they are his or if they are the same children he used to get U.S. authorities to release him with a Notice to Appear. …”
