Arrested for reading the Bible?

By Douglas Kennedy, Fox News
Published March 29, 2012


“Good morning, everyone,” he says to a crowd of 15 onlookers waiting outside the Hemet California Division of Motor Vehicles. “I would like to read a little bit of the word of God this morning.”

The video, shot in February of last year, ends with Mackey’s arrest.

“You can preach on your own property,” an officer from the California state patrol tells Mackey as he leads him away in handcuffs. “Folks, this is what the United States is coming to,” Mackey says to the crowd, who were standing outside waiting for the DMV to open. “You can talk about anything you want, but you can’t talk about the Bible.”

Mackey is a reverend with Calvary Chapel Hemet, a conservative Christian church that practices an “evangelical ministry,” requiring public testimonials and Scripture readings.

Church officials believe Mackey was arrested because of “Christian bigotry.”

The officer who made the arrest disagrees, claiming he arrested Mackey for preaching to a public audience who had no choice but to listen.

“You’re not allowed to preach here," he told Mackey, “because this is a captive audience.”

Mackey’s lawyer calls that “ridiculous.”

“That doesn’t make sense in America,” says Robert Tyler of Advocates for Faith and Freedom, a non-profit law firm which defends Christian Liberties. “If the doctrine of the captive audience is going to apply broad brush, no one is going to be allowed to [preach in] a public park…that’s not America.”

Tyler also points out Mackey was cited for “impeding an open business,” but he points out the DMV wasn’t even open at the time.

“The DMV was closed,” he said. “They had no business arresting him.”

Not so, observes constitutional attorney Dan Conaway, saying those waiting for the DMV doors to open have no choice but to listen to Mackey.

“He's creating an intimidating situation for people who simply want to get their drivers licenses renewed,” says Conaway, who says it’s OK to preach in public, but not when your listeners can’t leave.

“He does not have the right to intimidate others and force them to listen and impede their ability to do normal business activities such as going to the DMV.”

Tyler points out that the “captive audience” statute requires more than simple intimidation.

“Mackey had to be threatening them. Is reading the Bible threatening?”

Tyler says that, in the end, Mackey has simply been charged with trespassing.

How can that be trespassing?” Tyler asks. “This is a public place. He was not blocking or impeding anyone. He was standing over 50 feet from the entrance. This is crazy.”

Mackey sees it in biblical terms.

“The devil is holding everyone captive to do his will," he said as he was led away. “Repent, and trust in Jesus Christ. Judgment Day is coming, folks.”

The media missed this one, too. No hate crime?

Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 4, 2012, 9:17 PM


Two black youths chased a 13 year-old Kansas City student home from school doused him with gasoline and flicked a Bic at him. They were screaming, “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy.”

The boy suffered first degree burns on his face. He did not know the perpetrators.
KCTV reported:

Verum Serum reported on this from KMBC:

A 13-year-old Kansas City boy is back home after two teenagers poured gasoline on him and lit him on fire. It happened Tuesday at the teen’s home on Quincy Avenue, just down the street from Kansas City’s East High School. The boy lives less than two blocks away from the school and was walking home when the attack happened. Melissa Coon said her son turned from the school’s stadium onto Quincy Avenue and noticed two teenagers following him. She said the teens followed her son home and attacked him outside his front door. “And they rushed him on the porch as he tried to get the door open,” she said. “(One of them) poured the gasoline, then flicked the Bic, and said, ‘This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy’.”

A student was shot to death at a Mississippi State University residence hall late Saturday night, prompting campus-wide alerts as authorities searched for suspects who fled the scene. The university held a press conference Sunday morning at 10 a.m. to release more details.



Bill Kibler, vice president of student affairs, stated the victim's name is John Sanderson, age 21, from Madison, MS. Sanderson is a first year student at MSU and transferred there from Holmes Community College.



The 911 call was placed at 9:54 p.m. Saturday night, and police arrived at Evans Hall within minutes. The shooting occurred in a first floor dorm room.



Sanderson was transported by ambulance to Oktibbeha County Hospital Regional Medical Center around 10:20 and was declared dead there at around 11:30 p.m.



Evans Hall, which houses about 300 male students, has security cameras at each entrance. That video footage has been downloaded and turned over to police. Dorm residents have to go through three separate key card entrances before reaching a residence room.



Three African American male suspects reportedly fled the scene in a blue Crown Victoria. Authorities believe the suspects fled the campus and probably the city of Starkville. Twenty four students from adjacent rooms were relocated after the shooting primarily to preserve the crime scene. A gun was recovered on campus but authorities did not say where it was found.



As of mid-day Sunday, no arrests had been made.



Kibler says the university cannot discuss the motive due to the ongoing investigation.



University President Mark Keenum announced he believes the shooting was an isolated incident, and there's no indication of any danger to other students; however, university and Starkville residents were cautioned to be aware of an African American male looking for a ride to Jackson.



Shortly after the shooting, the university began sending a series of text message alerts to students.



University Police are heading the investigation with the help of Starkville Police, Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department and Mississippi Highway Patrol.

US Intelligence to keep tabs on Americans with no ties to terror

Published March 22, 2012

| Associated Press

REUTERS

January 31, 2012: Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testifies before a Senate (Select) Intelligence hearing on "World Wide Threats" on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The U.S. intelligence community will be able to store information about Americans with no ties to terrorism for up to five years under new Obama administration guidelines.

Until now, the National Counterterrorism Center had to destroy immediately information about Americans that already was stored in other government databases when there were no clear ties to terrorism.

Giving the NCTC expanded record-retention authority had been urged by members of Congress, who said the intelligence community did not connect strands of intelligence held by multiple agencies leading up to a failed bombing attempt on a U.S.-bound airliner on Christmas 2009.

"Following the failed terrorist attack in December 2009, representatives of the counterterrorism community concluded it is vital for NCTC to be provided with a variety of datasets from various agencies that contain terrorism information," Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a statement late Thursday. "The ability to search against these datasets for up to five years on a continuing basis as these updated guidelines permit will enable NCTC to accomplish its mission more practically and effectively."

The new rules replace guidelines issued in 2008 and have privacy advocates concerned about the potential for data-mining information on innocent Americans.

"It is a vast expansion of the government's surveillance authority," Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, said of the five-year retention period.

The government put in strong safeguards at the NCTC for the data that would be collected on U.S. citizens for intelligence purposes, Rotenberg said. These new guidelines undercut the Federal Privacy Act, he said.

"The fact that this data can be retained for five years on U.S. citizens for whom there's no evidence of criminal conduct is very disturbing," Rotenberg said.

"Total Information Awareness appears to be reconstructing itself," he said, referring to the Defense Department's data-mining research program that began after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks but was stopped in 2003 because of privacy concerns.

The Washington Post first reported the new rules Thursday.

The Obama administration said the new rules come with strong safeguards for privacy and civil liberties as well. Before the NCTC may obtain data held by another government agency, there is a high-level review to assure that the data are "likely to contain significant terrorism information," Alexander Joel, the civil liberties protection officer at the national intelligence directorate, said in a news release Thursday.

The NCTC was created after the Sept. 11 attacks to be the central U.S. organization to analyze and integrate intelligence regarding terrorism.

Federal government officials describe sovereign citizens as an "extremist anti-government group"

By ABC NEWS
March 8, 2012

Sovereign citizens are a loosely-organized collection of groups and individuals who believe they are both above the law and "true defenders of the Constitution."

They follow their own set of rules and many refuse to pay taxes. The movement's followers believe, in large part, that the existing government in the United States is illegitimate and needs to be "restored." Many sovereigns refer to themselves as "patriots" or "constitutionalists." Driver's licenses, license plates, and insurance are not required, many sovereign believe, going as far as making their own identification badges and gun permits. Some members are known to turn violent against law enforcement and are notoriously hostile towards the media.

Federal government officials describe sovereign citizens as an "extremist anti-government group" and the FBI is concerned about members of the group becoming more violent, accusing them of "comprising a domestic terrorist movement."

According to a new study released Wednesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the number of so-called hate or anti-government groups grew last year in the United States, fueled by a deeply felt socio-economic clash between the wealthy and the rest of the country, hostility from the right toward President Obama as he prepares to run for re-election, and the ease of the Internet to spread information.
Sovereign citizens are a loosely organized collection of groups and individuals who believe they are both above the law and "true defenders of the constitution."

The center, which has tracked such groups for 30 years, identified 1,018 hate groups in 2011, up slightly from 1,002 identified a year before, but the SPLC said this shows a continuing trend of "significant growth" that began over a decade ago.

Sovereign citizens are growing fast. The movement is estimated to be 300,000 people strong today, and has had some notorious members -- Terry Nichols, the co-plotter of the Oklahoma City Bombing, and Joe Stack, who flew his small plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas, in 2010, were both sovereign citizens.

"Nightline" was recently able to get inside the sovereign citizens movement, starting in a small church in Center Point, Ala., where Donald Joe Barber and his congregation of sovereigns, many of whom are middle-class and educated, were gathered to pray.

"I don't live in the United States. I live in the nation of Alabama," Barber said.

The radicalization of Donald Barber began in the 1980s, when he sold his photocopier business and got a tax bill from the IRS -- what he called an "IRS Hoax." He then dove deep into sovereign citizen ideology, which cobbles together passages from obscure law books, along with parts of the Constitution and the Bible, to justify flouting everything from tax laws to laws requiring license plates.

Using a common sovereign argument, Barber, 62, insists he doesn't need tags on his car if he is "traveling" rather than "driving," because "driving" implies that he's engaged in commerce, as opposed to "traveling," which is a God-given right.

Barber has been hauled into court repeatedly over the years and is well known to local judges. When Judge David Lichtenstein found Barber guilty of having disabled vehicles in his yard, he said Barber sent him a letter demanding $6 million in gold.

"He doesn't believe United States currency is legal tender so it's got to be gold, silver," Lichtenstein said.

Obama bypasses Congress, gives $1.5 billion tax dollars to Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

All Obama does is whine about Congress. When he’s not whining about Bush, everything is all Congress’ fault. Even though the Marxist Democrats control the Senate, and haven’t passed a bill in over 1,000, it’s only the Republicans in Congress who get blamed. But Obama doesn’t seem to need Congress to sprinkle our money around. Obama has decided to bypass congressional authority and give the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt $1.5 BILLION in tax payer funded aid.

This despite Egypt’s declaring Israel is now their #1 enemy and Egyptian Presidential Candidate Tawfiq Okasha calling for the expulsion of US Ambassador Anne Patterson, the “enemy of humanity” who “bathes in a sea of the blood of others.”

Sounds like a good investment. Kind of like Solyndra.

Trapped By the Beast

Belinda Anderson< Unleavened Bread Ministries - 3/14/12

I dreamed I was walking on my lane, just as it was dawning, to go up to the main road to the mailbox and get the newspaper. Just as I got to the road, I saw one of my neighbors getting into his truck. He drove up to me and said, "You'd better get to Walmart quickly; they are giving away free food, water, medicine and gas." (Trusting in the arm of the flesh. {Psa.146:3} Put not your trust in princes, Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. {Pro.3:5} Trust in Jehovah with all thy heart, And lean not upon thine own understanding. {Heb.12:16} lest there be any fornication, or profane person, as Esau, who for one mess of meat sold his own birthright. I said, "My husband is asleep, so I will have to wait until he wakes up." My neighbor said, "Well, I wouldn't wait too long or you might miss out." Then he left. I went on over to the mailbox and got the newspaper. I got halfway back down the lane, when I heard a voice say to me, "It's a trap; it's a trap. Don't go." {Jer.17:5} Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah. {6} For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited. {7} Blessed is the man that trusteth in Jehovah, and whose trust Jehovah is. {8} For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, that spreadeth out its roots by the river, and shall not fear when heat cometh, but its leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

I asked, "What's a trap?" The next thing I knew, I was standing in a Walmart parking lot. The lot was packed like it always is, so I asked what was wrong. I heard that same voice say, "Look at the people." So I looked at the people. They were coming out of the store with grocery carts full of items and getting into their cars and leaving. I asked again, "What's wrong?" The voice said, "Look closer at the people." So I zeroed in on the people and all of a sudden I noticed they were all wearing dog tags.

Then I found myself inside the store. There was a long line at the left of the store against the wall. They had it set up like at the airport with the roped lines, so the flow of people would be orderly. The store was full of products and people were shopping, so everything looked normal to these people in line. However, I noticed that the people shopping had on dog tags like the people in the parking lot. My oldest brother had been in the military years ago, so I knew what these dog tags were. I said to myself, "These are soldiers dressed up as civilians." (Government giveaways are designed by the beast system to trap you into trusting in them until you are addicted in your mind. The fleshpots were a government giveaway to the slaves to control them. The people who own the megastores are owned by the same people who own the government and military. Bondage to them is the spiritual mark of the beast. Pharaoh will rule the slaves.)

All of a sudden, I was standing at the back of the store. The store manager was standing in front of a set of doors marked Personnel Only. I noticed he had on dog tags as well. (Government and big business are one in socialism.) He was telling the people that only four people could go with him at a time to be processed in to get their vouchers for the free stuff. He had them line up two on the left and two on the right behind him. As they went through the first set of doors, there was a breezeway area, then another set of metal doors. He was telling these people that when they went through the next set of doors, there would be two women sitting at a desk and to go up to the desk and wait. As soon as these people got up to the desk and the second set of doors closed, four very large men (they looked like sumo wrestlers) came up behind these people, put their hands over their mouths and gave them some kind of a shot. (The giants of their own flesh will bring into bondage those who do not believe the promises but trust in men. Flee into the wilderness where God provides out of heaven through faith and the old man is dead at the Red Sea. {Php.4:19} And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.) Then these soldiers took their drivers license and car keys from them. (I believe the drivers license represents taking away their identity or place in Christ and the car keys represent taking away their freedom; they NOW belong to the beast -- lock, stock and barrel!) (At first they will want your social security number and income to receive food; then the card; then the mark will make it easy for you. This gradualism is the way to harden one's conscience.)

The two women sitting at the desk stamped these people on their right hands. (Representing the beastly works of flesh.) (Rev.13:16) And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead. I got closer so I could see what the stamp read; it read, Bus #1, Section A. Then these people were led out the back door on to a waiting bus. These people couldn't put up a fight, as the shot they were given made them like zombies and they could barely walk. (They stumbled out of the way; put to sleep by demons using the lusts of the flesh.) These people or victim's drivers license were placed in a box that read, Bus #1, Section A, as well. I'm sure this was so they could keep track of just exactly where they were taking them. Their car keys were given to some soldiers standing close by. (They are no longer individuals using cars but members of the collective riding buses; they are one in the beast body.)

I decided to follow these soldiers with the keys to see what they were going to do. They found these people's cars and drove them off the parking lot. I decided to go back to the bus to see what was happening there. I noticed they were taking people to the back of the bus and working their way forward. When they would get two people in a seat, there was a large harness that came over these people's shoulders. Then the soldiers reached down and grabbed another harness that went through their legs and it all joined together at their waist and locked. There was no way these people could get up. (They will be spiritually brought into bondage with few who escape. They will either deny the Lordship of Jesus over them and serve the collective or confess Jesus before men and lose their beastly life for their heavenly life.)

Then, again, the next thing I knew, I was standing in a large field off of a dirt road. This field was full of empty car carriers. I watched as the soldiers drove onto the field and up onto the car carriers. When the car carriers were full, they drove away. I lost count of how many there were, as there were so many. I just stood there trying to digest everything I had just witnessed. I closed my eyes and when I opened them again, I was back home on my lane. (Many will lose their individuality and freedom as the economy crumbles through mismanagement, war, natural catastrophes and plots of the globalists.)

I stood there thinking how clever that whole process was; they didn't have to go to the people. They devised such a clever way to have the people come to them without putting up a fight, like lambs to the slaughter. (It is natural for those who have no faith to gravitate to the beast for salvation in all forms, for they worship him.)

Also, I thought to myself, they have been planning this for a long time. Walmart would be a very logical staging area, as they provide, food, clothing, supplies, water, medicine and gas. They are always advertising it as a one-stop shop; now we know why! I took another look at Walmart. For some reason, I looked at it in reverse from the dash out, and it reads "Mart law," or could it be martial law! Then I woke up. (They will be the number one store under martial law. Mom-and-Pop stores will continue to die. Cheap Chinese labor and materials will win. An Executive order was signed on March 16, 2012 giving the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate all energy, production, transportation, food and even water resources by decree. They have control over all food, farms, livestock, farm equipment, fertilizer and food production across America.)

A secret behind Walmart’s rapid expansion in the United States has been its extensive use of public money. This includes more than $1.2 billion in tax breaks, free land, infrastructure assistance, low-cost financing and outright grants from state and local governments around the country.

Everything in America is illegal.

The bureaucrats are officially out of control.

In America today, it seems like almost everything is illegal.

One church down in Louisiana was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a government permit.

Well, I don't know about you, but I sure am going to give a cup of cold water to someone if they need it whether I have a permit or not.

It is as if common sense has totally gone out the window in this nation.

Over in New Hampshire, a woman is being sued for planting flowers in her own front yard.

This is the kind of thing that makes me glad that I have moved to a much more rural location. People in the country tend to be much more relaxed.

Sadly, those that love to micro-manage others continue to get the upper hand in America. Back in January, 40,000 new laws went into effect all over America. The politicians continue to hit us with wave after wave of regulations and laws with no end in sight.

All of this is making America a very unpleasant place in which to live.

HAVE THEY SKINNED THE RATTLESNAKE?

I have a degree in Political Science; but I have no idea what to call government by the least capable, the least qualified, the least moral, and the least fitted to the task of governing. In other words, I never learned a technical term that would apply to the government of the United States today.

There’s a lot that goes on here, politically, that Political Science can’t explain. For instance, twice as many American voters identify themselves as “conservatives” as opposed to “liberal.” And yet for some reason the 20% of the electorate that identifies as “liberal” completely runs the show. In a representative republic, how can that be?

It is as if the American people have become irrelevant to the business of running the country. We don’t matter anymore. We hate Obamacare, and yet we’ve got Obamacare. We want to protect the institution of marriage, but our courts and media won’t let us. We hate high gas prices, but the people who run the country seem to love them. In overwhelming numbers we cry out against the crazy spending that’s pushing our country into oblivion; but it only seems to make our government spend more.

Most mystifying of all, we elected these people who are destroying us.

Everywhere you look, we get the opposite of what we want. We don’t want schools that teach our children to be numbskulls and libertines, but we’ve got ‘em. We don’t want colleges that cost a fortune in tuition and prepare the graduates to be convenience store clerks with advanced degrees in History or Women’s Studies; but that’s what we’ve got. We don’t want a lone, cranky atheist to be able to shut down our town’s Christmas parade—or at least force us to change its name to “Winter Festival,” conjuring up images of druids leaping over bonfires—but that’s what we get.

Was there ever really, truly, a groundswell among Americans for major league baseball players to appear in a film exhorting teenagers to stay with homosexuality because “It Gets Better” with time? Was there ever a demand for federal lunch-room police? Three out of four of us are Christians—and yet our president’s re-election campaign includes in its finances a million-dollar contribution from a “celebrity” whose whole schtick is to malign Christianity and Christians. Would a man who hates Christians fork over a million dollars to a politician who loves Christians? And how do Christian voters wind up with anti-Christian rulers?

Did we ever ask for Congress to pass 2,000-page bills that give government entry into all sorts of intimate areas of our lives—bills that no politician reads before voting to enact, bills written by nobody-knows-who, for the benefit of someone, somewhere, but not us? They do it, we yell and scream about it, and then they do it again.

Have we ever suggested that our dream in life is to work ourselves to death so that public employees can retire at 55 and bum around the Bahamas, buy a horse farm, or tour the French wine country on their pensions? Did we ask for the United Nations to monitor our elections to make sure we don’t interfere with the rights of dead people, felons, and illegal aliens to vote for Democrats?

How was it ever possible for the majority of the voters in a great nation to elect leaders who consistently act against the voters’ interest, who go out of their way to provoke them, honoring the things the voters hate and wiping their shoes on things the voters love? Or is it that all these leaders have to do is cobble together a coalition of “minorities” won over with entitlements and special favors, and—Presto! Suddenly the majority becomes, for all practical purposes, the minority inside its own country, and may be spat upon with impunity.

What ever happened to “Don’t Tread on Me”? Has the rattlesnake been skinned and made into a doormat?

Where is the Tea Party today? In 2010 the Tea Party rose up and took back the House of Representatives. The Tea Party marched in tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands—

And still, in spite of all that marching, we got Obamacare fastened around our necks like the collar of a slave. And still we’ve got the spending frenzy, the plotting and scheming against our liberties, the wholesale looting of America for the benefit of the political class and its trusty clients, and the utter degradation of what remains of our culture.

I’m a political scientist, and Political Science cannot explain why all these things are happening, or how they happen.

Can you?

Teacher uses public school class for Obama indoctrination

March 22, 2012
Va. middle-schoolers assigned opposition research on GOP candidates
Published: 1:16 AM 03/22/2012
By Kalyn McMackin - The Daily Caller


A Virginia middle school teacher recently forced his students to support President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign by conducting opposition research in class against the Republican presidential candidates.

The 8th grade students, who attend Liberty Middle School in Fairfax County, were required to seek out the vulnerabilities of Republican presidential hopefuls and forward them to the Obama campaign.

“This assignment was just creepy beyond belief — like something out of East Germany during the Cold War,” one frustrated father, who asked for his family to remain anonymous, told The Daily Caller.

The assignment was for students to research the backgrounds and positions of each of the GOP candidates for president and find “weaknesses” in them, the parent explained. From there, students were to prepare a strategy paper to exploit those weaknesses and then to send their suggestions to the Obama campaign.

Liberty teacher Michael Denman, who declined to comment, unveiled the assignment in mid-January when he broke the Civics Honor’s class into four groups, one for each Republican candidate. The students were then to collaborate as a group and research the backgrounds of their assigned candidate.

Denman assigned two kids to write a paper revealing the identified “weaknesses,” two to write the attack strategy paper and two others to locate an individual inside the Obama campaign to whom they could send the information.

“My classmates don’t actually know a lot, but a few of us tended to agree that the most recent instruction on this project just didn’t seem right,” one of the students told TheDC. “Mr. Denman didn’t tell us where to find the information, just to research on them.”

As a result, the school received multiple phone calls from parents frustrated with the political nature of the assignment, the father told TheDC.

“I was shocked that a school teacher would so blatantly politicize the curriculum of a middle school classroom,” the parent said. “I asked [my child] if a similar assignment had been handed out to examine the background and positions of President Obama to see if the teacher was at least being bipartisan.”

No similar assignment was given to research Obama’s history, identify his weaknesses or pass them along to the Republican candidates.

John Torre, a spokesman on behalf of the Fairfax County Public School system, insists that students were never instructed to actually send their results to the Obama campaign.

“Instead, the teacher simply asked his students to find out the name of the office that would receive such information,” Torre wrote in an email to TheDC.

Torre explained that Principal Dr. Catherine Cipperly, who refused to comment, discussed the matter with Denman, citing that students should have been given a choice to research candidates from either major party.

“The principal advised the teacher that he should emphasize to his students that this assignment was meant to learn a process and not to endorse a particular candidate,” Torre said. “The teacher agreed with the principal’s direction.”

A district policy, which addresses employee political activities, states “employees shall not involve their schools in political campaigns, distribute political literature on school property or attempt to indoctrinate students with their personal political beliefs.”

Despite the rule, Denman’s intention was to exercise “a simulation activity with the intent of teaching students about the research process that a campaign committee goes through prior to an election,” Torre said.

The father, who describes himself as conservative, thought Denman’s behavior went too far and needed to be addressed.

“Teachers acting in such manner need to be called out,” he said. “I have no personal animosity toward the teacher in question at all, but let’s be real.”

In hopes of bringing this to the attention of other public school teachers, this father just wants one thing clear: “Leave politics out of the classroom,” he said. “Present a balanced viewpoint, teaching children to listen to all sides and think for themselves.”

Fairfax County, a suburban area situated across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., is by far Virginia’s most populous county and among the state’s most liberal. In 2008, Barack Obama won 60 percent of Fairfax County’s presidential votes, compared to just 39 percent for Sen. John McCain.

WAS NATIONAL SECURITY BREACHED IN THE NAME OF POLITICS?

March 19, 2012
In an exclusive primetime report, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow followed U.S. government officials into Mexico where they were in the process of removing weapons grade nuclear materials from the country.

The weapons usable nuclear material was being moved out of Mexico as part of an initiative to secure loose nuclear materials throughout the world. The main focus of the operation was to move these materials into the United States before they could fall into the hands of terrorist organizations.

The operation was being conducted by the National Nuclear Security Administration who is responsible for tracking down loose nuclear materials and removing them from countries around the world. NNSA Threat Reduction Director, Sarah Dickson walked Maddow through the operational logistics as they were happening in Mexico.

MNBC was given unprecedented real-time access to film the sensitive operation. Maddow was allowed to film the Mexican nuclear plants, was allowed to touch the IAEA sealed nuclear materiel, and was even allowed to film the Classified Military Transportation of Nuclear Materials.

What I find most troubling, is the report seems to indicate that MSNBC was given sensitive logistical information on the timing and routes that the nuclear material would be taking into the United States. The report included footage of the nuclear materials being loaded on Air Force C17′s as well as footage of the materials being loaded into special cargo trailers for sea transportation.

Rachel Maddow Producer

WAS NATIONAL SECURITY BREACHED IN THE NAME OF POLITICS?

Its one thing to release information to the press after the materials had been moved, but to give a news network detailed real-time information on the movement of radioactive materials is something that should raise a number of questions. To begin with, why was a news organization even allowed access to this information?

What if this information was leaked to a terrorist organization?
What was done to prevent this information from leaking outside of MSNBC?
What kind of National Security Clearance did the MSNBC reporter and her crew go through before being allowed access to such sensitive information?
Why would the administration allow a civilian news crew access to film the operation, and why would they be given detailed information on the transportation routes?

"We have met the enemy and he is us!" Pogo cartoon

by Michael Snyder

Is the USA still #1? Well, there are many things that America is still the best in the world at, but unfortunately a lot of those categories are nothing to be proud of. Once upon a time the United States was the greatest nation on earth, but now we are a nation that is in a horrific state of decline. Just consider a few of the embarrassing things that America leads the world in: obesity, crime, divorce, teen pregnancy, child abuse deaths and government debt. The statistics that you are about to read below are incredibly disturbing. Most people that write these kinds of articles about the decline of America hate this country. But that is not the case with me. I was born and raised in America and I love this nation deeply. It is time to realize that we will never be able to start fixing our problems until we take a really good look in the mirror and realize just how far we have fallen. America is not the country that it once was. America is a complete and total mess and just "tweaking" a few things here and there is not going to return this nation to its former glory. We have forgotten the things that once made us great, and if we do not return to them we will continue to fall apart as a nation.

With that being said, the following are 40 embarrassing things that America is the best in the world at....

#1 America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a good margin.

#2 There are more car thefts in the United States than anywhere else in the world by far.

#3 Of all the major industrialized nations, America is the most obese. Mexico is #2.

#4 The average American drinks more than 600 sodas a year - the most in the world.

#5 U.S. corporations sell more fast food and more soda than anyone else in the world by a wide margin.

#6 Nobody watches more television per week (28 hours) than Americans do. Although to be honest, people living in the UK are tied with us.

#7 The United States leads the world in credit card fraud.

#8 The United States has the highest percentage of one person households on the entire planet.

#9 The United States has the highest divorce rate in the world by a good margin.

#10 The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the world by far.

#11 There are more school shootings in America than anywhere else in the world.

#12 The United States has the highest child abuse death rate in the world.

#13 There are more "deaths by reptile" in America than anywhere else in the world.

#14 The United States has the most lawyers per capita in the entire world.

#15 The United States produces more pornography than any other nation in the world.

#16 Americans take more prescription drugs than anyone else in the world.

#17 More is spent on prescription drug advertising in America than anywhere else in the world.

#18 The percentage of women taking antidepressants in America is higher than in any other country in the world.

#19 More people have been diagnosed with mental disorders in America than anywhere else on earth.

#20 The United States has the highest rate of illegal drug use on the entire globe.

#21 There is more credit card debt in America than anywhere else in the world.

#22 There is more mortgage debt in America than anywhere else in the world.

#23 There is more student loan debt in America than anywhere else in the world.

#24 The United States spends more money on government schools than any other nation on earth does.

#25 U.S. citizens spend more time in school than anyone else in the world. So why are so many of us dumb as a rock?

#26 Nobody in the world gets more plastic surgery done than Americans do.

#27 The United States leads the world in eating disorder deaths.

#28 According to nationmaster.com, the United States has the most total reported crimes in the world by far.

#29 Nobody has more airport security thugs groping women and children than America does.

#30 The United States spends much more on health care as a percentage of GDP than any other nation on the face of the earth.

#31 The United States has the most complicated tax system on the entire planet.

#32 The United States has the most laws on the entire planet.

#33 The United States spends more on the military than the next 12 nations combined, and yet the Obama administration is considering plans to unilaterally slash the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal by up to 80 percent.

#34 The United States has the most foreign military bases in the world by far.

#35 The United States exports more arms to other countries than anyone else in the world.

#36 Americans spend more time sitting in traffic than anyone else in the world.

#37 Americans spend more money on elections than anyone else does in the world by a very wide margin.

#38 Every single year, the United States has the largest trade deficit in the world by far.

#39 The U.S. government wastes more money than any other government on earth does.

#40 The United States has accumulated the biggest mountain of government debt in the history of the world.

So is the USA #1?

Unfortunately, the answer way too often is yes.

The goal of this list of embarrassing things is not to trash America.

Rather, the goal is to wake Americans up and to get them to realize what has happened to us.

We should be deeply humbled and embarrassed as a nation. We were once the best in the world and the envy of the entire globe, but now the whole world is laughing at us.

America is supposed to be a beacon of liberty, freedom and prosperity for the entire planet.

Instead, we are rapidly turning into a horror show.

Wake up America. The condition of our country is absolutely shameful, and every single day it gets even worse.

Please share this list with as many people as you can. The American people need a massive wake up call, and it is up to those of us that are awake to share the truth while we still can.

Obama is anti Christian and pro Islam

Exerpted from comments by Chuck Norris.

Among the 50 actions Obama has taken are:

May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House.

Oct. 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions.

April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring.

January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a World War I memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand. But the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court.

June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery.

September 2011 – The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating, “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.”

February 2012 – The Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei).

February 2011 – Obama directs the Justice Department to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.

2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha.

“Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history,” Barton concludes following the full list. “The hostility of President Obama toward biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.”

Movie and television star and WND columnist Chuck Norris suggested no matter what Obama calls himself, he should be judged by his actions.

In a series of commentaries, he explained how Obama is using U.S. Special Envoy Rashad Hussain, his own presidential position and others in his administration to deepen and expand the partnerships between the United States and the religion of Islam.

He also detailed Obama’s real spiritual beliefs based upon a rare, in-depth 2004 interview by a religious reporter for a major newspaper, including his beliefs about prayer, sin, heaven, the Bible and the person of Jesus.

Norris wondered why Obama does not “consider it his responsibility to ‘fight against negative stereotypes’ of Christianity.”

“As president, why doesn’t he defend the rights of Christians too, especially those whose voice and freedoms have been suppressed because of opposition?” Norris wrote.

“In just the last few months, why didn’t the president step forward and stand up publicly for any of the following Christians who had their First Amendment rights trampled upon by others, just as he had done for Muslims who are attempting to build the Ground Zero mosque?”

He continued:

“Why doesn’t the president stand up for the rights of Christian organizations, whose rights to hire same faith or mission-minded employees are protected under the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment, but are right now having to urge Congress to reject legislation that would prohibit them from hiring only fellow believers?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the North Carolina pastor who was fired from his duties as an honorary chaplain of the state house of representatives after he closed a prayer “in the name of Jesus”?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the children from the Christian private school who were “abruptly” ordered by a court police officer to stop praying outside the U.S. Supreme Court building?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of those in Utah who erected 14 memorial crosses on highways for state troopers killed in the line of duty, but were told by federal judges they are to come down because they are unconstitutional?

“Why didn’t the president himself stand up for the human rights of the Christian missionaries and medical team in Afghanistan, including six Americans, to practice medicine and their faith, even after they were murdered by Islamic extremists? Wouldn’t other medical missionaries in Afghanistan appreciate Obama’s defense more now than ever?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the four missionaries arrested at an Arab festival in Dearborn, Mich., just for exercising their freedom of speech and religion?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the Rev. Billy Graham, who was disinvited from a Pentagon prayer service on the National Day of Prayer because of his “extremist” Christian views and values?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Christian student who was booted from her graduate counseling program at a public university over her belief and conviction that homosexuality is morally wrong?

“Why didn’t the president stand up for the three Christian evangelists who were arrested for sharing the gospel and singing hymns on a public sidewalk outside an Islamic mosque in Philadelphia?

“And, mostly, why didn’t the president stand up for the rights of the Greek Orthodox Church, the only church that was actually destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, as church leaders have been frustrated and fouled by New York officials who have virtually turned their backs on the reconstruction of the church near Ground Zero?”

“In countless speeches and actions since taking office, Obama has sympathized and supported pro-Islamic ideologies and practice. That is why the New York Times even recently published a multiple-page report on how the “White House quietly courts Muslims in the U.S.,” Norris wrote

Again, all Americans were lied to by our President.

It’s now official. Contained in just-released Health and Human Services guidelines is yet another mandate that requires an “abortion premium” for the establishment of state health care exchanges.

According to our friends at LifeNews…

“To comply with the accounting requirement, plans will collect a $1 abortion surcharge from each premium payer… The enrollee will make two payments, $1 per month for abortion and another payment for the rest of the services covered.

As described in the rule, the surcharge can only be disclosed to the enrollee at the time of enrollment. Furthermore, insurance plans may only advertise the total cost of the premiums without disclosing that enrollees will be charged a $1 per month fee to directly subsidize abortions.”

Here’s the bottom line: All Americans were lied to by our President, who promised that ObamaCare would not enhance abortion services, nor would taxpayer money be used to fund these murderous procedures!

And you will certainly remember the President’s oh-so-sincere promise that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.”
It turns out that, too, was a convenient “misrepresentation.”

++CBO Report: ObamaCare cost estimates have doubled!

Yesterday the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its most recent projections revealing that ObamaCare’s costs will be more than double what the President promised and Congress approved – from $900 Billion to $1.76 Trillion. Analysts say the true cost will, in all likelihood, far exceed $2 Trillion over that ten-year span.

We have been saying all along that the Obama administration used accounting trickery to insure that his healthcare package came in under $1 Trillion. Now that, too, has been CONFIRMED.

++Far fewer people will be able to obtain employer plans – or keep their existing plans – than was falsely promised.

Further, the CBO report disclosed the likelihood that four million people – more than four times the original estimate – will be unable to have access to healthcare services through their employers.

++We must fervently pray to be delivered from the murderous, unaffordable, deceitful snares of ObamaCare!

CBO: Obamacare to cost $1.76 trillion over 10 yrs

by Philip Klein Senior Editorial Writer
The Examiner


President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.

Democrats employed many accounting tricks when they were pushing through the national health care legislation, the most egregious of which was to delay full implementation of the law until 2014, so it would appear cheaper under the CBO's standard ten-year budget window and, at least on paper, meet Obama's pledge that the legislation would cost "around $900 billion over 10 years." When the final CBO score came out before passage, critics noted that the true 10 year cost would be far higher than advertised once projections accounted for full implementation.

Today, the CBO released new projections from 2013 extending through 2022, and the results are as critics expected: the ten-year cost of the law's core provisions to expand health insurance coverage has now ballooned to $1.76 trillion. That's because we now have estimates for Obamacare's first nine years of full implementation, rather than the mere six when it was signed into law. Only next year will we get a true ten-year cost estimate, if the law isn't overturned by the Supreme Court or repealed by then. Given that in 2022, the last year available, the gross cost of the coverage expansions are $265 billion, we're likely looking at about $2 trillion over the first decade, or more than double what Obama advertised.

9 of 10 in poll: Time for impeachment

Biggest response would link removal to eligibility dispute


An unscientific poll today revealed that nearly 9 in 10 respondents say it’s time now to move on impeachment proceedings for Barack Obama.

The WND poll revealed that of nearly 10,000 votes by this evening, only handsful picked negative responses to the question, “Is it a smart idea to pursue impeachment of Obama now?”

The biggest individual number, 28 percent, would link the action now to the dispute over his eligibility, and questions whether he is qualified to hold the office of president. That segment, numbering nearly 2,600 votes, said, “Yes, if not for his military use, then for his other high crimes, such as not being eligible, his phony birth certificate, and fake Social Security number.”

Other categories with “yes” answers totaled another 60-some percent. Included were “Yes” at nearly 15 percent, “Yes, it’s’ way past time,” at 13 percent, “Yes, or else America is done for” at 11 percent, “Yes, but only if concrete, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence is assured” at 9 percent, “Yes, it will at least publicize to Americans his crimes before the election” at nearly 7 percent, “Yes, it’s a good idea to at least lay the groundwork for whatever his next offense is” at nearly 4 percent.

Several other yes votes got a fraction of a percent.

Those responding no congregated around the “No, the Senate would never convict him, so it’s a waste of time and energy answer.” It had 3 percent of the votes. “No, this is just politics by desperate Republicans” got 1 percent and “No, if they didn’t impeach Bush for unauthorized use of military, they sure shouldn’t Obama” also got 1 percent. Several other “No” votes also got a fraction of a percent.

The latest move in the impeachment sweepstakes came when Rep. Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C., introduced a resolution declaring that should the president use offensive military force without authorization of an act of Congress, “it is the sense of Congress”
that such an act would be “an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor.”

Also, in an exclusive WND column, former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo claims that Jones introduced his House Concurrent Resolution 107 in response to startling recent comments from Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

“This week it was Secretary of Defense Panetta’s declaration before the Senate Armed Services Committee that he and President Obama look not to the Congress for authorization to bomb Syria but to NATO and the United Nations,” Tancredo writes. “This led to Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., introducing an official resolution calling for impeachment should Obama take offensive action based on Panetta’s policy statement, because it would violate the Constitution.”

Read “The Case for Impeachment” and know why Obama has got to go before America is done for … and also put your opinion out in public, with a bumper sticker that calls for impeachment.

In response to questions from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., over who determines the proper and legal use of the U.S. military, Panetta said, “Our goal would be to seek international permission and we would … come to the Congress and inform you and determine how best to approach this, whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress – I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”

“Well, I’m almost breathless about that,” Sessions responded, “because what I heard you say is, ‘We’re going to seek international approval, and then we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval.’ And I just want to say to you that’s a big [deal].”

The full wording of H. Con. Res. 107, which is currently referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, is as follows:

“Expressing the sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.

Whereas the cornerstone of the Republic is honoring Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under article I, section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that, except in response to an actual or imminent attack against the territory of the United States, the use of offensive military force by a president without prior and clear authorization of an act of Congress violates Congress’s exclusive power to declare war under Article I, Section 8, clause 11 of the Constitution and therefore constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.”

It is, however, long from the first mention of impeachment. Earlier, WND reported when William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, called for the action.

“By arming drug and human smugglers with assault weapons that have been used to kill American and Mexican citizens and police forces, and by ordering amnesty for illegal aliens which has been rejected by both the Congress and the American public more than eight times, Obama has committed a form of treason against the United States and must be removed from office by Congress,” he said.

The president “made it clear to the American public that he does not care what they think, what the current federal laws are, what the U.S. Constitution says, or what Congress has ratified,” he said. “Congress must take immediate action to stop Obama or the American Republic will fall. What use are elections, candidates, or the Congress, if the executive branch rules by decree?”

Interestingly, it was Joseph Biden, now vice president, who said as a presidential candidate in 2007, “A president has no constitutional authority to take this nation to war … unless we’re attacked or there is proof we are about to be attacked. If he does, I would move to impeach him.”

Attorney Larry Klayman, a former Justice Department prosecutor, founder of Judicial Watch and now of Freedom Watch, agreed.

“From what has already occurred, the offenses of the ‘mullah in chief’ are ‘already’ so compelling as to warrant immediate impeachment and conviction for his high crimes and misdemeanors, before the United States is totally destroyed by him,” he wrote.

The first statement from a member of Congress on the issue came from U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., who responded to this question from Think Progress: “I know Newt Gingrich has came out (sic) and said if they don’t reverse course [regarding trials for terror suspects] here, we ought to be talking about possibly impeaching either Attorney General [Eric] Holder or even President Obama to try to get them to reverse course. Do you think that is something you would support?”

Franks replied: “If it could gain the collective support, absolutely. I called for Eric Holder to repudiate the policy to try terrorists within our civil courts, or resign. So it just seems like that they have an uncanny ability to get it wrong on almost all fronts.”

WND also has reported that Jonathan Chait at The New Republic, before the 2010 election, predicted that the House would impeach Obama with a majority in the House, but he wouldn’t be removed from office because that would demand 67 votes in the Senate.

“Hear me now and believe me later. … They won’t do it right away. And they won’t succeed in removing Obama. (You need 67 Senate votes.) But if Obama wins a second term, the House will vote to impeach him before he leaves office,” Chait wrote.

WND also reported when Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry, who served in Vietnam and commanded the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground during his long military career, said Congress should simply hand Obama an ultimatum.

“Action should be taken by the Senate and should be taken by the House,” he said. “They should serve notice on him and say, ‘Mr. President, we love you but we want to tell you something. You’re under a cloud of suspicion. We can’t continue running this country with you in charge under this cloud. Now either you clear it up or you resign from office.’”

He was answering questions on Stan Solomon’s “Talk to Solomon” show.

Further, retired U.S. Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a noted military leader who now is a presence on the Internet with his Stand Up For America and Veterans Defenders websites, earlier told WND he believed Obama should resign.

Vallely, who served in Vietnam and retired in 1991 from the U.S. Army as deputy commanding general for the Pacific, said, “We now must call for the immediate resignation of Barry Soetoro (aka President Barack Hussein Obama) … based on incompetence, deceit, fraud, corruption, dishonesty and violation of the U.S. oath of office and the Constitution.

“We can wait no longer for a traditional change of power and new government,” he has warned.

Peter Ferrara, on the American Spectator website, also has predicted Obama’s resignation.

“I am now ready to predict that President Obama will not even make it [to 2012],” he wrote. “I predict that he will resign in discredited disgrace before the fall of 2012,” Ferrera said.

Times columnist Jeffrey T. Kuhner, who also is president of the Edmund Burke Institute, wrote, “President Obama has engaged in numerous high crimes and misdemeanors. The Democratic majority in Congress is in peril as Americans reject his agenda. Yet more must be done: Mr. Obama should be impeached.”

Kuhner continued, “He is slowly – piece by painful piece – erecting a socialist dictatorship. We are not there – yet. But he is putting America on that dangerous path. He is undermining our constitutional system of checks and balances; subverting democratic procedures and the rule of law; presiding over a corrupt, gangster regime; and assaulting the very pillars of traditional capitalism. Like Venezuela’s leftist strongman, Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama is bent on imposing a revolution from above – one that is polarizing America along racial, political and ideological lines. Mr. Obama is the most divisive president since Richard Nixon. His policies are balkanizing the country. It’s time for him to go.”

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown, in a WND column, discussed the ImpeachObamaCampaign.com they launched.

And at the Taking America Back 2010 conference in Miami in September, Floyd Brown expanded on the idea.

Brown, president of the Western Center for Journalism, said, “The Obama presidency is a disease. … Article 2, Section 4 (the impeachment clause of the Constitution) is the cure. And it’s Obama’s hatred of America that makes it absolutely imperative that we take action now.

“Barack Hussein Obama is not some do-gooder that has had his plans go astray,” Brown added. “He is not a person of good will just trying his best to make America go the right direction. He is not. Barack Hussein Obama is a liar that absolutely knows what he’s doing to the United States of America. He has a plan. He has an agenda. This man knows exactly where he’s taking us.”

Democrat Congressman Proudly Receives Award From Communist Organization

By Duane Lester - March 12, 2012

A video by Rebel Pundit is powerful. In it, you’ll see Democrat Congressman Danny K. Davis, who State Senator Barack Obama claimed was “one of the best Congressman in the country…because he shares our values,” receive an award from a gaggle of communists.

Davis is proud of the award, up until he realizes he’s talking to a blogger and not a fellow communist sympathizer.

Then, it’s a low speed footrace to the Congressman’s vehicle, which I noticed is not a hybrid, but an SUV:

“Oh I thought you were just a citizen. Why would you be worried about the Communist Party?”

Millions of dead in the USSR, China and Cambodia are reason enough.

More from Rebel Pundit:

Upon receiving the People’s World “Chris Hani & Rudy Lozano Social Justice Award,” Davis reflected, “Rudy Lozano and I worked closely together to try and build and a relationship between Latino and African-American activists and union types…we called ourselves ‘Progressives.’”



Further investigation into the nature of the award reveals that Chris Hani, one of the figures for whom Congressman Davis’s award was named, was an anti-apartheid activist and chief-of-staff in the armed branch of the African National Congress. Hani spent much of his life in exile from South Africa and received military training in the Soviet Union, returning to South Africa in 1990. In 1991, he took over the South African Communist Party, and in 1993 he was assassinated.

Like President Obama, Rudy Lozano, the other namesake of the award, was also a community organizer in Chicago. He was credited with bringing Latino voters to support the former mayor of Chicago, Harold Washington. Lozano was later shot to death in his home by Gregory Escobar for allegedly failing to pay off a $7,000 drug debt.

According to the Chicago Tribune, at a tribute event held at the University of Chicago for Lozano, “Richard Barnett, an aide on Washington’s mayoral campaign, said it was people like Lozano who built the foundation for Barack Obama’s historic run for the presidency.

Perfect.

The Democrat party is not the party of Truman, but the party of Marx.

Arizona sheriff finds Obama presidential qualifications forged.

07.03.2012

By Dianna Cotter

A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation.

A long awaited press conference was given by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a five time elected Sheriff, which should have made national and international headlines. Arpaio's credentials include serving in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, service as a federal narcotics agent serving in countries all over the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as the head of the Arizona DEA. Without doubt, this is a serious Law Enforcement Officer, not one to be taken in by tin-foil-hat wearing loons.

Yet, in the five days since his revelations there has been little in the way of serious reporting on the findings he presented in his presser. With 6 short videos, the Sheriff and his team presented a devastating case, one the tame US press is apparently unable to report.


On April 27, 2011, President Barack walked into the White House Press room with a Cheshire cat like grin and a "Long Form Birth Certificate" from the State of Hawaii in hand. From the podium in the press room, Mr. Obama said, "We're not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers,". Quite the barb from a man holding a forged document.

That's right, forged.

The president himself created the scene; one filled laughter from an adoring press corp., a scene of unprecedented fanfare while holding a forged document which was later posted on the White House website. This was the news Sheriff Arpaio revealed on March 1, 2012 in Arizona.

Arpaio asserts that his investigators discovered, during a 6 month long investigation which is ongoing, not only was the "Long Form" likely a digitally created forgery, but the presidents Selective Service Card (Draft Card), allegedly filed in 1980, was also a forgery. These documents are what Barack Hussein Obama relies upon to prove his constitutional eligibility to the office of President of the United States.

Forged documents are being used to qualify a President of the United States for the office he holds. Or is usurped the more accurate term?

The silence from the main stream media in the US is deafening. It almost seems as if the press is terrified to even think the question, let alone ask it: Is the President a criminal? The press in Arpaio's audience were certainly asking him to state precisely that, yet nowhere has the question been asked of the White House by the press. Instead the American Press is aggressively protecting the presumed President of the United States, pushing the fraud upon both America and the world, supporting a man who may well have usurped the office.

For months before Mr. Obama released the April 2011 forgery, American businessman Donald Trump had been demanding that the president show the country definitive proof that he was born in the state of Hawaii, and eligible for the Office of President. The birth certificate forgery which was presented by Mr. Obama was in response to the repeated public requests from the billionaire businessman.

One can easily imagine the reaction of the press had this scenario been about George W. Bush in 2004.

On the contrary, the press itself forged documents regarding the 43rd President: Long term CBS newsman Dan Rather lost his credibility along with his job when he presented forged Air National Guard documents allegedly denigrating the president's service in the 1970's. One can imagine the glee evidence presented by law enforcement officials of a real forgery made by President Bush would have generated. The press feeding frenzy would have eclipsed that of Watergate, the most controversial political event in modern America history which led to the resignation of President Nixon in August of 1974.

The questions in the White House Press room would have been merciless to say the very least.

What has been the response from the Obama era press?

Silence.

Silence so loud it can be felt.

What has been the response from the 44th president so far?

A tweet from Obama Campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt, containing a link to the conspiracy theory television show "The X-files" theme song: a mocking, Saul Alinsky like, retort.

High Crimes and Misdemeanors appear to have been committed by the President of the United States or his personal representatives in presenting a forged document to the press and the Nation as a legitimate document, and this information has been delivered from Law Enforcement Officials.

Arpaio refused to take the bait offered by a clearly hostile press in the conference room. He refused to accuse the president directly, instead informing the world that they had a "person of interest" in the forgery, and were continuing with the investigation.

Where is the outrage from the press??

As surreal as this is, it isn't the main event. It's only a part of a larger story.

Why Is Obama in Bed with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Posted by Ted Belman on Feb 29th, 2012

This article is reprinted from The American Thinker.

Dr. Essam Abdallah, an Egyptian liberal intellectual, in an article published last October in the leading liberal pan-Arab journal Elaph, refers to certain reports coming out of Washington:

These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government. All of this is happening at a time when the US government is going through its most strategically dangerous period in modern times because of its need to confront the Iranian Mullahs regime, which is expanding in the Middle East, as well as penetrating the United States, via powerful and influential allies.

Abdallah alleged that “the popular revolts in the Arab world — and the Obama Administration’s position towards them — were determined by political battles between various pressure groups in Washington.”

He followed up with another article this month in which he asks:

[W]hy isn’t the West in general and the United States Administration in particular clearly and forcefully supporting our civil societies and particularly the secular democrats of the region? Why were the bureaucracies in Washington and in Brussels partnering with Islamists in the region and not with their natural allies the democracy promoting political forces?

Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism said of this article: “This is one of the most important articles I have read in years.” He then made allegations of his own:

It was just revealed two days ago that FBI Director Mueller secretly met on February 8 at FBI headquarters with a coalition of groups including various Islamist and militant Arabic groups who in the past have defended Hamas and Hizballah and have also issued blatantly anti-Semitic statements. At this meeting, the FBI revealed that it had removed more than 1000 presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that was deemed “offensive.” The FBI did not reveal what criteria was used to determine why material was considered “offensive” but knowledgeable law enforcement sources have told the IPT that it was these radical groups who made that determination. Moreover, numerous FBI agents have confirmed that from now on, FBI headquarters has banned all FBI offices from inviting any counter-terrorist specialists who are considered “anti-Islam” by Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
