Additional Link to Chicago Tribune article: “NATO: No ‘business as usual’ with Moscow” The Russian planes have been challenged by Alaska-based F-22s and F-15s and escorted in the other direction without incident, officials said. …

BRUSSELS, Belgium – BRUSSELS, Belgium — NATO allies said Tuesday there would be no “business as usual” with Moscow until Russian troops withdraw from all parts of Georgia, but members of the Western alliance disagreed on the extent to which Moscow should be more permanently isolated.

An alliance declaration calling on Russia to “demonstrate — both in word and deed” its commitment to its cooperative relationship with NATO, one U.S. official said, was “better than we thought” could be achieved in the face of reluctance from some European partners.

Wright returns. Says Obama to be first U.S. president to “have a black woman sleeping” in White House “legally”

“Uncle” Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, the former pastor of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)’s former church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago (both tossed under the Obama bus), made an appearance today at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church in downtown Houston, Athena Jones at MSNBC’s First Read reported.

Mike Snyder of the Houston Chronicle wrote that Wright has been “a regular guest minister at Wheeler Avenue for more than 15 years” although a “scheduled appearance in March was canceled because of security concerns.”

Wright “spoke glowingly of Obama while preaching at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, as part of a message that God takes ‘the ordinary and turns it into the extraordinary’,” Jones wrote.

The Never-Ending War on American Freedom

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo


From the beginning of the American Republic there has been a group of influential people who have devoted their lives and careers to putting more Power In Government (PIGs). As soon as the American Revolution ended Alexander Hamilton schemed to overthrow the first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation, and replace it with a document that would legitimize a permanent president who would appoint all the governors and have veto power over all state legislation. He wanted a king, in other words, who could force British-style mercantilism and an imperialistic foreign policy on America without any significant resistance by the citizens of the states. He failed during his lifetime, but that is essentially the system Americans live under today. We now live in “Hamilton’s republic,” as his idolaters gleefully remind us.

As soon as Hamilton’s party, the Federalists, gained power, one of the first things they did was to rescind the First Amendment to the new Constitution with the Sedition Act during the presidency of John Adams. Hamilton authored several long-winded reports as Treasury Secretary in which he invented the insidious notions of “implied” powers in the Constitution along with such an expansive interpretation of the General Welfare and Commerce Clauses that the Constitution would become useless as a restraint on governmental tyranny.

Why Hillary Clinton cannot legally be President. ^ | June 13, 2004 | Jon Christian Ryter

Posted on Sunday, August 31, 2008 11:20:52 AM by Oyarsa

Author’s Note: I originally wrote and posted this article on my website on June 13, 2004. The URL was hit 11.4 million times in a two-day period and was the most read article on in the history of my website. At least one well-recognized constitutional lawyer agreed with the view of the article that, without a Constitutional amendment degenderizing Article II of the Constitution, Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot constitutionally seek—or legally hold—the office of President of the United States. That, of course will not stop the former First Lady and current junior Senator from New York from running anyway and attempting to amend the US Constitution by precedent. If no one files a petititon before the US Supreme Court (which is the only court with jurisdiction over this question) and should Hillary win, the Constitution will have been amended by common practice—opening the door wide for the elimination of the 2nd Amendment using the same tactics.

The Perfect Stranger

By Charles Krauthammer

WASHINGTON — Barack Obama is an immensely talented man whose talents have been largely devoted to crafting, and chronicling, his own life. Not things. Not ideas. Not institutions. But himself.

Nothing wrong or even terribly odd about that, except that he is laying claim to the job of crafting the coming history of the United States. A leap of such audacity is odd. The air of unease at the Democratic convention this week was not just a result of the Clinton psychodrama. The deeper anxiety was that the party was nominating a man of many gifts but precious few accomplishments — bearing even fewer witnesses.

In previous hurricanes like Ivan, geometric shapes were observed in the eye of the storm. One such shape with Ivan was a pentagon-shaped opening in the eye:

The implications of weather control gone wrong are horrific when people die and property is destroyed. All this just to prove weather control technology works? This is madness. In order for the Pentagon to control the world’s weather in a few years as they have boldly promised, weather control experiments to refine the technology will have to be underway now. Ivan, Katrina, Gustav and Floater 08L appear to provide evidence of at least several such attempts.

(Ron) Paul: McCain, Obama ‘no difference’

Posted on Thursday, August 28, 2008 7:21:50 PM by pissant

Congressman Ron Paul says there is ‘no difference’ between US presidential candidates, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain.

“Their foreign policies are identical,” the Texas congressman said in an interview with CNN on Thursday. “There’s no difference.”

“They want more troops in Afghanistan. They want to send more support to Georgia to protect the oil line there. Neither one says bring home the troops from Iraq from the bases — you know the bases are going to stay there, the embassy as big as the Vatican, that’s going to remain. So their foreign policies are exactly the same,” he added.

The former Republican presidential candidate said that the two candidates are both threats to the US national interests.

Colorado Representative Douglas Bruce presented this approach to the massive illegal alien invasion of Colorado as follows. Colorado General Assembly; HB-1325 by Rep. Douglas Bruce: THE ALIEN IMPORTATION ACT OF 2008.

Note; the author, an official Member of the Colorado House of Representatives, was not allowed to offer this commentary on the floor. The Speaker of the House, Representative Andrew Romanoff, prevented the action. The subject legislation was offered by Representative Marsha Looper, in behalf of her local electorate. The Colorado General Assembly has always invited and encouraged discussion on each bill, until this day. Here is the brilliant tongue-in-cheek floor-speech that was prevented.

“Thank you for offering this important bill, Representative Looper.”

Doug Bruce said, “Immigration is a very hot topic. Every time I go to Wal-Mart, I have constituents approach.

They say,

“Doug, you have to do something about immigration.

OBAMA’S GARDEN PARTY By Coach Dave Daubenmire

I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again.
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same

People came from miles around, everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air…
If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
But if memories were all I sang, I’d rather drive a truck
. Rick Nelson 1972

I probably will never qualify as a political pundit. You know what I mean, the cadre of nobodies who parade as “experts” on the “news” programs on TV who are really nothing more than hand-picked political hacks. They are not experts, they are sheep-herders. They are hired to shape public opinion and to influence what was once a free-thinking American populace.

Today, Americans are nothing but sheep, waiting to be herded, and eventually to be sheared. That is the goal of the “experts.” They decide, you report. How else could we possibly have McCain and Obama?

My positions are clear. I will not vote for a political party. I vote for a candidate. I’m in no one’s pocket. Neither man gets my vote.

In a major shot fired across the bow of the statin marketing machine, the levels of LDL cholesterol that are the artificial targets of “health” promoted by the American Heart Association (AHA) are now found to be associated with a significant increased risk of cancer and death.

The AHA recommends an LDL level of 100 for prevention and 70 for high risk patients. In the new study an LDL level of 107 was associated with a 33% increased risk of cancer and death, an LDL level of 87 was associated with a 50% increased risk. As the LDL goes lower the risk keeps getting worse. These arbitrary AHA levels for LDL cholesterol were established by “experts” with direct financial ties to the statin industry, who knew full well that reaching their artificially low target levels for LDL would require double and triple doses of statin drugs, thus dramatically increasing sales (which has indeed happened).

The Vytorin fraud has pointed out quite clearly that lowering LDL cholesterol to very low levels does not reduce cardiovascular disease. Another Vytorin study also shows doing so increases cancer risk by 64%. The new study paints the clear picture that lowering LDL too low actually increases the rate of death from any cause. This new study also points out the statistical shenanigans that the statin industry uses to hide the actual risks of these drugs in the studies that have been published.

Democrats will kneel before the “Temple of Obama” tonight.

As if a Rocky Mountain coronation were not lofty enough, Barack Obama will aim for Mount Olympus when he accepts his party’s nomination atop an enormous, Greek-columned stage – built by the same cheesy set team that put together Britney Spears’ last tour.

John McCain’s campaign mocked the massive neoclassical set created for Obama’s speech at 75,000-seat Invesco Field. Some Republicans have dubbed it the “Barackopolis,” while others suggested the delegates should wear togas to fit in among the same Doric columns the ancient Greeks believed would stroke the egos of Zeus and Athena.

“It’s only appropriate that Barack Obama would descend down from the heavens and spend a little time with us mere mortals when accepting the Democratic nomination,” said Republican National Committee spokesman Danny Diaz.

The McCain campaign quickly dispatched a memo calling the stage the “Temple of Obama.”

“Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” Zechariah 14:12

He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? Matthew 16:2-3

Today, while surfing the internet I ran across one of those interminably silly arguments, via a written exchange, as to whether the Bible is verifiably true or just a collection of colorful, and obtuse fairy tales. It is interesting that these exchanges always seem to be comprised of a divide between the collective bodies of two groups – those who despise the thought that a sovereign God exists and that He might have any control over the universe, the world or horror of horrors their own personal lives, and those nominal Christians who spin their wheels futilely and vainly with nonsensical contentions and vacuous arguments grounded only in the wisdom and doctrines of men and devoid of an unfaltering, unshakable and unassailable belief in the super natural power of the Eternal Spirit who created a universe of one hundred twenty-five billion galaxies; each encompassing one hundred billion stars. All this is mindful of the old TV commercial in which a little old lady lifts the top of the bun enclosing a hamburger and indignantly exclaims, “Where’s the beef?” Like that scrawny little denizen of the geriatric set a true believer in the eternal almighty and infallible God looks at these delusive and puny proffers and cries out, “Where’s the faith?”

How Orwell Anticipated the Obama Delusion

How Orwell Anticipated the Obama Delusion

Although best known for his novels, 1984 and Animal Farm, George Orwell was a political essayist of the first order. Writing sixty years ago or more, he all but predicted what might be called “the Obama Delusion.”

This is, of course, a paraphrase of the title of Richard Dawkins´s bestseller, The God Delusion, God being a likely role model for the new Messiah.

Dawkins, in turn drew this title from that classic of soft-core Buddhism, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

“When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity,” observed author Robert Pirsig lamely, “When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.”

Bush Urged To Block Mexican Military

Agents cite rash of incursions

By Jerry Seper, The Washington Times

The U.S. Border Patrol’s largest union local has asked President Bush to put an end to the scores of Mexican military incursions into the United States that have put Border Patrol agents at risk of being injured or killed.

“It is disgraceful that Border Patrol agents are put in harm’s way and our government doesn’t do everything reasonably within its power to protect us from marauding Mexican soldiers and others,” said Edward “Bud” Tuffly II, head of Local 2544 of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) in Tucson.

“Without a forceful response to these illegal incursions, an agent will eventually be seriously wounded or killed. It is only a matter of time,” Mr. Tuffly said. “The incursions will not stop until the Mexican military units and their commanders are held accountable for their actions.”

In a letter Saturday to Mr. Bush, Mr. Tuffly asked the president to “take a strong stand against” Mexican military incursions.

He said Mexican soldiers have made hundreds of incursions into the United States and that some of them resulted in agents coming under gunfire and being detained at gunpoint.

Militarism and a Uni-polar World

By Lenora Foerstel

27/08/08 “Global Research” — – The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller as an off-shoot of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR). David Rockefeller was chairman of the CFR in 1970 and subsequently became the founding chairman of the Trilateral Commission. Soon the membership of the Commission had grown to 300 members, including prominent political figures like Zbigniew Brzezinski. Most members of the Trilateral Commission are bankers, media moguls, or corporate CEOs, primarily from North America, Europe and Japan, while all members of the CFR are U.S. Citizens.

The Commission seeks to extend its influence abroad and is careful to avoid the scrutiny of congressional investigations. The CFR on the other hand, focuses on the control of American media.

When American media discuss globalism, they rarely mention that the Trilateral Commission sets most global economic goals, primary among them being the creation of a one-world system of trade. It is basically a form of fascism in which global corporations and their elite CEOs determine the policies and direction of world governments. The creation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank after World War II was intended to encourage Third World countries to borrow money from wealthy nations, so long as they agreed to the imposition of a wide range of “structural adjustment policies.” Any nation borrowing money from either organization would not be allowed to nationalize its natural resources and would be unable to prevent foreign corporations from buying or controlling those resources.

Shortly before World War II, Hjalmer Schacht, a German banker, toured the United States soliciting American corporate support for Hitler’s new fascist state. U.S. corporations not only agreed to support Germany against the socialist economic system of the Soviet Union, but also declared their opposition to the strong labor movement arising in the United States and Europe.

General Motors was prominent among the corporations that supported the Nazi government, investing $20 million in industries owned or controlled by Herman Goering and other Nazi officials. Other US multinational corporations that profited from and supported Hitler’s industrial war machine included General Electric, Standard Oil, Texaco, International Harvester, ITT and IBM. Today, Standard Oil of New York is unabashed in honoring its chemical cartel that manufactured Zyklon-B, the poison gas used by the Nazi gas chambers. (1)

Among the eminent business leaders backing these multinational corporations were the Rockefellers and Prescott Bush, father of George Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush. Prescott Bush worked with his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, in the family firm Union Banking Corporation to raise $50 million for the Nazi government by selling German bonds to American investors from 1924 to 1930.

Candidate for 26th Congressionial district sees possibility of secession due to Mexican immigrants

WASHINGTON — Congressional candidate Jack Davis, in a speech earlier this year, warned that increasing immigration from Mexico could lead to a new civil war between northern states and Mexican-influenced Southern states that may want to secede from the United States.

“In the latter part of this century or the next, Mexicans will be a majority in many of the states and could therefore take control of the state government using the democratic process,” Davis said in the speech. “They could then secede from the United States, and then we might have another civil war.”

A supporter of one of Davis’ rivals for the Democratic nomination in the 26th district, Jon Powers, posted the video to YouTube. The Powers campaign alerted The Buffalo News to the Davis video.

The YouTube video is labeled as a speech Davis gave at the Center for Inquiry in Amherst on Feb. 1, but a center press release indicates that he spoke there on March 19.

Dress greens out, dress blues in for Army

By Lisa Burgess, Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Friday, August 22, 2008

S&S file photo
The Army’s dress blue Army Service Uniform, which just replaced the dress green and white versions, will look subtly different from the existing dress blue uniform, shown here, which soldiers will be allowed to wear from now until 2014, the blue ASU’s mandated wear date.

ARLINGTON, Va. — It’s official: The Army’s blue Class A uniform will become the single approved Army Service Uniform, triumphing over the less popular dress greens and rarely seen mess-dress whites.

The decision was announced Wednesday in an all-Army message from Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Kenneth Preston.

The greens and whites are being phased out over the next six years, with the Army mandating dress blues as the exclusive Class A uniform by 2014.

The Army began looking at the issue of consolidating its three existing dress uniforms into a single version two years ago, after Gen. Peter Schoomaker, then Army chief of staff, said he wanted to streamline the number of uniforms soldiers purchase and maintain throughout their career.

The dress blue uniform, which features a dark blue jacket and light-blue pants, has roots in U.S. Army uniforms that date back to the Revolutionary War, and is usually worn during ceremonies and formal occasions.

In contrast, dress greens date only to the 1950s, and are the Army equivalent of a civilian business suit.

Dress greens have never been popular with soldiers. Many criticize what they say is an un-military, suit-like appearance and a thick, all-polyester fabric that is sturdy but has an unflattering, stiff drape.

The tropic-weight dress white uniform, meanwhile, is so rarely worn that a soldier can easily spend an entire Army career without seeing it. It is passing into history largely unnoticed.

History is not taught very well in today’s public schools, and that is why the history of the Democratic Party is totally unknown by the American voting public

History is not taught very well in today’s public schools, and that is why the history of the Democratic Party is totally unknown by the American voting public. Believe it or not, the Democratic Party was inspired by those Southern delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 who forced all of the other delegates to accept the institution of slavery as the price of their participation in the new government. That is why the Southern states were able to count each slave as three-fifths of a person in determining the number of Representatives the state could send to Congress.

Although the Constitution called for ending the importation of slaves by 1808, the Southerners were compensated by Section 2 of Article IV, which stated: “No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due.”

The Basic Flaw

by Charley Reese
by Charley Reese


The basic flaw in the neoconservative ideology is that democracy cannot be imposed on other people at the point of a gun.

Furthermore, if neoconservatives came from an American tradition rather than a Trotskyite tradition, they would understand that America itself is not a democracy. Benjamin Franklin emerged from the Constitutional Convention and a lady asked him, “Well, Mr. Franklin, what kind of government have you given us?” He did not say democracy. He replied, “Madam, we have given you a republic – if you can keep it.”

A republic and a democracy are two different animals. A democracy, which can actually work only in a very small country, allows citizens to vote on every issue. A republic allows citizens to elect representatives, who then use their own judgment to decide issues. If the citizens disagree with the representatives’ decisions, they can replace them at the next election.

After a century of green uniforms, the last one is being retired from the U.S. Army. The new “Class A” uniform, as of August 21st, 2008, will be the current blue “Dress Uniform.”. By 2010, troops graduating from basic training will be issued the “dress blues” as their “Class A” uniform. The “Class B” uniform will be the dress blue trousers and a white shirt with decorations (ribbons, combat badge and so on). For both enlisted and officers, rank will be worn on epaulets. The new uniform “system” is similar to the one the U.S. Marine Corps has been wearing for decades, and that’s no accident.

TRO Denied; Obama Can Still Run — For Now

The Obama campaign is probably breathing a sigh of relief now that the motion for temporary restraining order sought by Philip J. Berg, Esquire, has been denied. Berg, who says he is a Democrat (and presumably a Clinton supporter), filed a lawsuit last Thursday in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Obama, the DNC and the FEC, claiming that Obama can’t be president because he isn’t a “natural born Citizen,” as required by Article II, Section I of the Constitution. Berg also immediately sought a TRO to “put a stop to Defendant Obama’s fraudulent campaign scheme.”

Gunny G: “SULLY,” RAY JACOBS, and “MAC” McCULLOUGH….Those of you on my e-mail list and who read my blogs will recognize the name of Ken “Mac” McCullough and his recent pic holding his old WW II Gung Ho knife from his Carlson Raider days.
Back about 1998/97, when I first got online, I pursued topics of Marine Corps history such as Carlson’s Raiders, the Flags of Suribachi, etc. At that time there was little such in-depth information online; so I did it the old fashioned-way–I did it myself.Since then the Marine Raiders organization and Dan Marsh came along and put up much more sophisticated sites on the raiders. And, then, a couple years or so later I got an e-mail from Marine Ray Jacobs who had been the radioman in the Lou Lowery photos of that first flag raising on Suribachi. And, during those years, Dr. R.E. Sullivan, Col USMC Ret, also contacted me regarding both of us having served at Camp Fuji, Japan back in the ’50s. “Sully” is a prolific writer of all things Old Corps, and we have shared many online discussions together these last many years. He is a WW II, China, Korea, and Vietnam Marine.

I have been very fortunate in my years online having interacted with such Marines as Mac, Ray, and “Sully,” all of whom greatly added to my knowledge of USMC historical topics. And there have been many others who I have neglected to mention here, but whose names and stories appear here and there throughout my webpages.

Corsi challenges Obama response
Best-selling author’s rebuttal to Democrat’s campaign to be released here on WND

Posted: August 25, 2008
10:21 pm Eastern


Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, claims Jerome Corsi, the author of the New York Times No. 1 best-seller “The Obama Nation,” was “just makin’ stuff up.”

But he thought the issues revealed in the book important enough to write a 40-page response and publicize it, trying to defuse concerns that may have been raised by Corsi’s book. The author has now, however, confirmed he’s taken Obama’s new explanations to task in a 70-page document that he’ll be releasing exclusively on WND later this week.

The personal attack from Obama came, according to a McClatchy Newspapers report, during a campaign stop shortly after the book was released and rocketed to the top of the best-sellers list.

(Story continues below)

“As if acknowledging that his lead over [GOP candidate Sen. John] McCain has shrunk heading into the parties’ nominating conventions and accusing Republicans of smearing him out of desperation,” Obama told the crowd: “I don’t find myself particularly scary or particularly risky, but I mean, they’re good at it. So they’ve got these ads with Paris [Hilton] and Britney [Spears] and they’ve got some guy who just wrote a book. He just makin’ stuff up, just makes stuff up. But it gets a lot of play on Fox News. After a while people starting thinking, ‘God, he does have a funny name,’ or believing false rumors about me they get in e-mails about Obama’s religion or patriotism.”

The reference to “some guy” is Corsi, the senior staff writer for WND who wrote “The Obama Nation,” an in-depth report explaining why the U.S. senator from Illinois should not be president.

Media Blackout On Cheney Iran False Flag Story

Prison Planet

Saturday, Aug 2, 2008

UPDATE – 12.55pm CST – MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann covered the story on Thursday by naming Dick Cheney in his “worst person” segment. See the transcript [2] here.

The mainstream American corporate press has once again proven itself to be no better than the state controlled media in places like Communist China or Zimbabwe, by steadfastly refusing to print even a mention of the huge story concerning veteran journalist Seymour Hersh’s recent comments that the vice president wanted to carry out a false flag operation to provoke a war with Iran.

As we [3] reported Thursday, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh revealed how the neocons convened around Dick Cheney and brainstormed ways to kick off World War IV.

“There was a dozen ideas proffered about how to trigger a war,” Hersh explained. “The one that interested me the most was why don’t we build — we in our shipyard — build four or five boats that look like Iranian PT boats. Put Navy seals on them with a lot of arms. And next time one of our boats goes to the Straits of Hormuz, start a shoot-up.”

Obama’s Red Mentor Was a Pervert By Cliff Kincaid

Obama’s Red Mentor Was a Pervert

AIM Column |  By Cliff Kincaid  |  August 24, 2008

Clearly, this is liberal pro-Obama media bias by omission.

Covering a sensitive and explosive subject that has been off-limits for the major U.S. media, the London Daily Telegraph is now claiming that Communist Frank Marshall Davis was a strong influence over a young Barack Obama for nine years of his life, rather than just four, and was a sex pervert and pothead. The Telegraph article alleges that Davis was a bisexual engaged in “sordid” sexual activities and had repeated sexual encounters with a 13-year-old girl.

In an article headlined, “Frank Marshall Davis, alleged Communist, was early influence on Barack Obama,” writer Toby Harnden confirms everything Accuracy in Media has been reporting since February about the mysterious “Frank” in Obama’s book being Communist Party USA (CPUSA) member Frank Marshall Davis. Harnden is the Daily Telegraph’s U.S. Editor, based in Washington, D.C.

The word “alleged” in the headline is misleading, since there is no doubt that Davis, who was investigated by the FBI and various congressional and official inquiries, was a CPUSA member. In fact, as AIM has documented, Davis was involved in the CPUSA or its front activities, before, during and after World War II, and became a member of a secret communist apparatus in the 1950s after the CPUSA in Hawaii was reorganized on an underground basis. Davis died in 1987.

“Although identified only as Frank in Mr. Obama’s memoir Dreams from My Father, it has now been established that he was Frank Marshall Davis, a radical activist and journalist who had been suspected of being a member of the Communist Party in the 1950s,” Harnden reported.

Time’s Comic Book History

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo
by Thomas J. DiLorenzo


Time magazine recently took a break from advocating the nationalization of health care, a massive enlargement of the welfare state, and swooning over Barack Obama (who’s been on the cover seven times to date this year) to compile a list of America’s worst vice presidents. It’s mostly politically-correct baloney with just enough facts to make it appear legitimate to the uneducated reader. One entry in particular – the one for John C. Calhoun as the third-worst vice president (Aaron Burr was the worst, followed by Elbridge Gerry) – caught my eye because almost every single sentence in it is untrue.

The Calhoun entry was written by one Tiffany Sharples. I wondered what kind of background Tiffany has that would have led a Time editor to give her the assignment of educating Americans on their vice presidential history. A Google search revealed that she’s a “political and health” reporter for the Medill News Service out of Chicago. There’s a listing of many of her articles on the Web, the most interesting of which (to me, anyway) is “Drink Pink! Forget Cosmos and Appletinis, Watermelon is This Season’s Hot Cocktail of Choice.”

The first falsehood in Tiffany’s Calhoun entry is her statement that President John Quincy Adams, under whom Calhoun served as vice president, was “a Northern abolitionist.” Not true. All of John Quincy Adams’s biographers write that he was never an abolitionist per se, even though he made anti-slavery statements. Anti-slavery rhetoric alone did not make one an abolitionist in the nineteenth century. Robert E. Lee called slavery “a moral and political evil,” but no Time magazine writer would conclude that he was therefore a closet abolitionist.

Here’s the truth about Obama birth certificate
Nashua Telegrapgh ^ | 8/24/08 | Jess Henig

Posted on Monday, August 25, 2008 12:42:31 PM by pissant

Since we first wrote about Sen. Barack Obama’s birth certificate June 16, speculation on his citizenship has continued apace. Some claim Obama posted a fake birth certificate to his Web page.

That charge leaped from the blogo-sphere to the mainstream media last week when Jerome Corsi, author of a book attacking Obama, repeated the claim in an Aug. 15 interview with Steve Doocy on Fox News.

Corsi: Well, what would be really helpful is if Senator Obama would release primary documents like his birth certificate. The campaign has a false, fake birth certificate posted on their Web site. How is anybody supposed to really piece together his life?

Will Authorities Stage Riots In Denver?

Protesters need to be wary about history of authorities using agent provocateurs to demonize legitimate demonstrators and justify violence

Paul Joseph Watson

Monday, August 25, 2008

The major question hanging over the Democratic National Convention, which starts in Denver today, is whether or not authorities will follow the lead of previous mass protest events, and actively stage violence to justify a brutal crackdown on legitimate demonstrators.

Last year after an incident during the SPP summit in Montebello Canada, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.

Police even went to great lengths to stage arrests of the agent provocateurs after they were outed as undercover cops by genuine protesters.

After initial photographs showed the “anarchists” wearing the same standard issue boots as the cops, debunkers attempted to dismiss the issue, but were forced to eat humble pie [2] when authorities were eventually backed into a corner and had to admit that cops were dressed up as “black bloc” anarchists and used to spy on protesters.

Watch the video.

The so-called “black bloc” anarchists are completely infiltrated and controlled by the security services and are routinely employed at major protest events to cause riots and demonize legitimate peaceful protesters.

In Seattle in 1999 at the World Trade Organization meeting, the authorities declared a state of emergency, imposed curfews and resorted to nothing short of police state tactics in response to a small minority of hostile black bloc hooligans. In his film [3] Police State 2, Alex Jones covered the fact that the police allowed the black bloc to run riot in downtown Seattle while they concentrated on preventing the movement of peaceful protestors. The film presents clear evidence that the left-wing anarchist groups are actually controlled by the state and used to demonize peaceful protesters.

Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes

By Daniel Pipes | 8/25/2008

How do Muslims see Barack Hussein Obama? They have three choices: either as he presents himself – someone who has “never been a Muslim” and has “always been a Christian“; or as a fellow Muslim; or as an apostate from Islam.Reports suggests that while Americans generally view the Democratic candidate having had no religion before converting at Reverend Jeremiah Wrights’s hands at age 27, Muslims the world over rarely see him as Christian but usually as either Muslim or ex-Muslim.

Lee Smith of the Hudson Institute explains why: “Barack Obama’s father was Muslim and therefore, according to Islamic law, so is the candidate. In spite of the Quranic verses explaining that there is no compulsion in religion, a Muslim child takes the religion of his or her father. … for Muslims around the world, non-American Muslims at any rate, they can only ever see Barack Hussein Obama as a Muslim.” In addition, his school record from Indonesia lists him as a Muslim

‘Will Obama Ever Face the Press?’
By JB Williams (08/25/08)

Serious Questions that the Press Refuse to Ask! – It is very troubling that a man is seeking the office of Commander-in-Chief of the United States at a time when he will confront lethal threats against the nation from the most brutal tyrants around the globe, yet he is openly afraid to face the unfriendly news reporters at FOX News Network…

He thinks he can handle Al Qaeda, Hamas, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Kim Jon Il and Russian aggression, but admittedly can’t handle Bill O’Reilly?

Even Hillary Clinton was brave enough to sit and field open questions from FOX News, which she did very well by the way. I’m a conservative, so I’m not a Hillary supporter. But I must say that Hillary handled herself quite well in FOX interviews, a room Obama won’t even set foot in. Obama is the only candidate in history who has refused to answer FOX News questions.

Are we really going to elect a war time president who is afraid of FOX News?

What is Obama so afraid of?

On this day, 45 years ago. Gene Ervin was a Marine recruit on Parris Island. During a night march, something that was never supposed to happen to Marines happened. This is the story of six young Marines and a shock to the nation.

A Deadly Walk in the Swamp
By Gene Ervin

The year is 1956 at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot on Parris Island, off the coast of South Carolina.

I arrived with other recruits by train from Connecticut. When Marine sergeants took us across that imaginary Mason-Dixon Line, time took a step backward.

There was an ever-present uneasiness on that 18-hour ride through the rural South where white people drank water from different fountains and used separate bathrooms from the blacks.

I had read about the separate system in books and newspapers, but never paid much attention.

But now, here I was in South Carolina and about to experience first-hand the Marine Corps. The nightmare was about to begin.

At boot camp in 1956, a young man was subjected to the most humbling treatment he had ever known. All recruits were treated the same regardless of ethnic background. The name of the game was making a Marine out of raw material.

As a platoon of 78 guys, we learned to coexist under adverse conditions, to function as a unit and handle firearms for effect.

Days were filled with marching in formation, studying the Marine Corps manual and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

We learned to walk guard duty and endured more close-order drill. Everywhere we went, we went in formation to the cadence of our drill instructor.

Many movies are made of this life, but nothing, I mean nothing, is like being there.

After five weeks, we advanced to the rifle range, where we learned the fine art of marksmanship, practicing various shooting positions, or “snapping in.”

We needed to score 190 shots out of a possible 250 to qualify as a marksman. I qualified with 210 to boot camp. Later on, I would advance to 235. Not bad for a city boy.

Life in the barracks at the rifle range was a lot more comfortable than in the basic-training Quonset huts. The daily routine focused on learning how to effectively handle a weapon. The stress put upon you by the drill instructors was mercifully reduced to almost being nice.

We took advantage of the relaxed atmosphere, flaking out at every opportunity, getting a few minutes of sleep whenever the time was right, and even indulging in seconds at mealtime.

But the guys in our platoon became a little too relaxed for the drill instructor’s comfort, and it was time for a lesson in discipline, to take a walk in the swamp.

One sunny day, we were assigned to do our laundry on the wash rack in back of our barracks. A few of the guys lay down and relaxed while their clothes dried in the sun. They were spotted by a range instructor.

A few minutes later out comes Sgt. Matt McKeon, our drill instructor, frothing at the mouth from anger and embarrassment.

Oregon voters may find themselves being confused over a ballot initiative being added this coming Election. According to observers, who have researched how Measure 65 would change their state’s election process, Oregon voters would be limited to choosing between only two candidates even if they are both members of the same party.

During the primaries, Oregonians will all be given the same ballot, regardless of their party affiliation. The two top vote-getters will move on to the general election, even if they both happen to be Republicans, Democrats or one of each.

“In other words, it eliminates partisan primary elections for state and local political offices in Oregon. Instead, all candidates for a political office, regardless of party affiliation, would appear on the same ballot, and all voters, regardless of party registration, could vote in the primary. Only the top two primary vote-getters for each office would be on the November election ballot,” claims conservative strategist Mike Baker.

In a triumphant political column, Linda Chavez, pro-illegal immigration columnist, exposed a profound dilemma for the citizens of the United States: “A majority minority nation-but so what?” Chavez/Denver Post /8/17/08

Aristotle said, “Tolerance and apathy are the first signs of a dying society.”

Linda Chavez noted in that national column carried by major newspapers nationwide, that by 2042, the United States transforms from a majority nation to a minority dominated nation. She said, “Hispanics, Asians and blacks will outnumber whites by 32 million…but so what?”

That new minority-majority arrives from merciless, relentless and massive immigration from poor, destitute, mostly third world countries. Chavez asks, “But so what?” We must answer that question with sobering realities we face as a civilization.

Back on December 18, 2006, I wrote a column on Joseph Biden’s decision to once again run for president. Biden has now been tapped as Marxist Barack Hussein Obama’s choice for vice-president. One columnist wrote this was akin to a Watergate suicide. Biden was dropped like a hot potato by the DNC in 1998 when he ran for president because Biden was exposed as a liar and cheat, although now it seems to be a qualifier for both the Democrat and Republican parties. I’m not a Republican and I would never vote a despicable person like Juan McCain. Like Obama, Biden plagiarized someone else’s speech. Biden also plagiarized in law school; NY Times article back in 1987.

Ron Paul Delegates Advocate Civil Disobedience

Posted by Lew Rockwell at August 23, 2008 12:18 PM

Hardcore RP delegates to the Republican national convention hope to convince enough McCain delegates to abstain on the first ballot to deny the fascist neocon the nomination, with the hope of eventually nominating Ron. They rightly point out that, as St. Thomas Aquinas said, an unjust law is no law at all, so anyone with a conscience is not required to vote for McCain, no matter what their state government says; indeed, just the opposite.

Of course, the hardcores have absolutely no chance, since anyone the party chooses to be a McCain delegate is evil. Still, the RP guys and gals have worked their hearts out for many months, and spent lots of money they can’t afford. Even though they are doomed to defeat, who can tell them not to do what they believe to be right?

“The Ballbusting Duo”

Biggest Setback to Men in US History

Attention all men: do a quick testicular self-exam. That space you feel between your legs means that Barack Obama and Joe Biden — both on record as ballbusting misandrists — will easily convince you to send them to the White House. If you enable their victory, you will cause the biggest setback to men in US history.

It is Saturday morning, August 23, 2008. All the networks are atwitter about Barack Obama choosing Joe Biden to be his veep. Fawning reporters are camped outside Joe Biden’s “compound” in Wilmington, Delaware, awaiting his appearance at the door, while the Secret Service is ready to whisk him to the airport. From there, Biden will fly to Springfield, Illinois, to join Barack Obama for the formal announcement.

Despite the numerous debates amongst TV’s talking heads, pundits, and partisans about the qualifications Obama and Biden may or may not have to run our country, these pontificators never mention the presidential aspirants’ disdain for men. Never. They never mention VAWA, a four-letter word on TV. That’s because violating the US Constitution, to the detriment of men, isn’t as important a topic as, say, how many homes the candidates own — or the sizes or colors or locations of those homes.

This attitude that men are trivial and irrelevant, and deserve no rights, is precisely why lawmakers, judges, jurists, governors, and presidents continue to ignore the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. I guess that female tears smudge the Constitution’s ink, rendering it impossible to read.

Can’t read the Constitution? Ignore it. In California, domestic violence is still defined as “man hitting woman,” according to Health & Safety Code 124250, even though women commit domestic violence up to 70% of the time. Who cares how many men’s lives are ruined? They’re just disposable tools.

Autophobic Men

Many people believe that misandry, the hatred of men, emanates only from radical feminists. Wrong. Most man-haters are autophobic men. Barack Obama, who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, squarely established his misandrist credentials on Fathers’ Day 2008, when he unilaterally railed against men as the culprits of fatherless homes. Yet, he failed to lay at least equal blame at the doorsteps of unwed mothers on Mothers’ Day. If he truly respects women as equals, he would have done that.

Recently, pregnant Minnie Driver announced that she will create a fatherless home with this gem, “Today you don’t need a man anymore. In the old days, a baby without marriage and people would put you out. Today you speak about it on talk shows.” Where was Barack Obama to condemn her irresponsibility?

When the divorcing Lara Logan of CBS News “announced” that she had gotten herself knocked up in Iraq up by a married military man, GynObama was nowhere to condemn her irresponsibility. Coddling women is a sign of disrespect for them — and a sign of disregard for men.

Senator Joe Biden, Obama’s new ballbusting partner in crime, is also known as “the father of VAWA.” If you don’t already know about this pernicious law — and shame on you if you don’t — VAWA is the unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act, born in 1994 from the loins of Joe Biden.

The senator from Delaware, who teaches a seminar on constitutional law at the Widener University School of Law, believes — unconstitutionally — that violence against women trumps violence against men. Not only did Biden’s jihad against men result in an unconstitutionally funded ($500M/year) Office on Violence Against Women, he recently proposed that US taxpayers fund 100,000 free lawyers to help women file domestic-violence claims against men. And the law students at Widener are paying to hear Biden’s seminars?

A Conversation with Philip J. Berg, Esq. (Obama birth certificate lawsuit) ^ | 8-23-08 | Jeff Schreiber

A Conversation with Philip J. Berg, Esq.

Fairly late yesterday evening, I had the opportunity to speak with Philip Berg, the Philadelphia attorney who filed suit against Illinois senator Barack Obama in Federal Court in Philadelphia, questioning the constitutional eligibility of his candidacy for president.

I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time to break the story, which only now is beginning to gain traction for a hopeful leap into the mainstream media. Berg, who served as Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania for eight years, ran twice for governor in 1990 and 1998 and once for the U.S. Senate in 1994, was former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA) County and a former member of the Democratic State Committee, was more than happy to speak with me yesterday afternoon in the lobby of the courthouse following a hearing in the chambers of the Hon. R. Barclay Surrick.

Immediately, we established that we couldn’t be more ideologically dissimilar. He believes that the United States government was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001; the very mention of such theories make me ill. He was an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy during the primaries; I sell tee shirts showing the former first lady and one of her quotes (“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good,” said in June 2004) juxtaposed under the words “RE-DEFEAT COMMUNISM.”

Needless to say, Philip Berg and I are very different. I’m not sure that I completely buy into the various allegations made in the complaint filed late on Thursday afternoon, but I value more than anything other than my wife and child the United States Constitution and the ideas and ideals of those who wrote it here in Philadelphia so many years ago; for that reason, I firmly believe that Berg’s action against Barack Obama must be given the full attention that it deserves, for the sake of America and everything for which She stands.

Philip Berg, from what I can tell, is not the stark-raving mad whack-job that people on the American political left are already portraying him to be. In our two discussions, he was rational, he was calm, he was congenial and showed a sense of humor — something I thought inexistent in most liberals. I’m not afraid to say that I like the guy.

He found time to fit me in amidst an increasingly busy schedule. He had just completed a 20-minute live, drive-time radio interview with a San Diego, CA show, presumably Roger Hedgecock’s show, but I don’t know for sure. Earlier on Friday, he taped a 20-minute interview with Webster Tarpley, apparently an influential figure among those who, like Berg, feel that our federal government, incapable and cumbersome as it is, was able to organize and execute the 9/11 attacks and keep the conspiracy quiet afterwards. I didn’t press on Tarpley; I’m like David Banner when I get angry, only with love handles. Berg also mentioned that he was to be on Coast To Coast AM early this morning from about 1:15 to 3:00 a.m., and on Monday was scheduled for another drive-time interview on a Mississippi radio station.

The mainstream press, once it does grab a hold of this story, will undoubtedly cast Philip Berg as either (1) a nutjob with a questionable past or (2) a low-level party operative retained by Hillary Clinton and her flunkies to do some dirty work in the days leading up to the nominating convention in Denver. I thought I’d tackle the latter issue first, perhaps to determine where his loyalties lie and how he feels about the candidates.

MSM Chooses Ignoring Obama Lawsuit Eligibity Challenge
Texas Songwriter

Posted on Saturday, August 23, 2008 1:57:27 PM by Texas Songwriter

Several years ago as the MSM began to fall in love the leftist Republican Arnold Swartznegger they chose to carefully examine the fourteenth amendment regarding Arnold’s possible requirement deficit, even going to the point of ‘floating a trial balloon’ to determine the public attitude toward amending the Constitution to ‘force a fit’. It is noted that the idea did not gain any traction to speak of, but there was, and still remains, some interest in this notion.

Now comes an examination of a true contender, someone who has a good chance of being elected, and with serious people asking pertinent questions of eligibility, even going to the length of an Attorney in Pennsylvania who is a long time democrat and previous office holder in that state, bringing a cause of action with sworn expert testimony, with several exhibits and proofs of allegation to prove a fact issue to explain the tort, and the MAINSTREAM MEDIA chooses to ignore this issue, which is of tantamount importance to every American of any political stripe. The small issue of Constitutionality hangs in the balance and the Fourth Estate has clearly decided to pretend this issue does not exist. So, we Americans, may just elect a person with dual or triple loyalties to one of three different countries, and the MAINSTREAM MEDIA chooses to pretend these circumstances do not exist.

BOMBSHELL: Barack Obama Is Not a US Citizen, Not Eligible to be US President.

BOMBSHELL: Barack Obama Is Not a US Citizen, Not Eligible to be US President.

Birth Certificate Found in Kenya. Citizen of Kenya and Indonesia. Hawaiian Certificate Forged.

Republicans Can Hardly Wait for Dems to Take Obama Bait

Attorney Phil Berg on Federal Suit to Stop Obama, CoastToCoast AM Aug 23rd ca. 1 AM Eastern, plus Aug. 23rd, 2:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST World Crisis Radio with Webster Tarpley, (and On Demand for the week following at ).

On Aug. 21st attorney Philip J. Berg requested an injunction in Federal Court against the nomination of Barack Obama, citing evidence that candidate Barack Obama is not a US citizen, and “the obvious problems that will occur when the Republican Party raises these issues after Obama is nominated.” See Berg’s website, .

Berg argues that Barack Obama was born in Kenya in 1961 to an American woman, Stanley Ann Dunham, and a Kenyan man, Barack Hussein Obama Senior, as reportedly shown by a birth certificate from Mombasa Maternity Hospital. According to the law at that time, a parent could pass US citizenship on to a child born abroad if the parent was at least 19 years old. Obama’s mother was only 18.

No hospital birth certificate has been produced to show Obama was born in Hawaii, only a certificate of birth registry after the fact, which forensics experts have denounced as a forgery.

Maybe bush is right–that the constitution “…is just a gd peiece of paper”–the constitution obviously cannot/will not be enforced.

Down With The Presidency provides some good reasons for this.

But replace the whole Constitution or just the presidency?

Maybe just eliminate/revise the presidency as it is now, but replace it with what? Maybe have a sort of presidency by committee with members being a president, vice-president, representatives from each of the two other branches of government (judicial and legislative), representaives of two or more political parties, etc. Maybe even include the fourth estate, etc.
Or maybe something else altogether.

Electoral College Designed To Preclude Political Parties?

August 23, 2008 8 comments
Flag Line Graphic 

Excerpt from an original document located at Jackson County, MO Election Board

In order to appreciate the reasons for the Electoral College, it is essential to understand its historical context and the problem that the Founding Fathers were trying to solve. They faced the difficult question of how to elect a president in a nation that:

  • was composed of thirteen large and small States jealous of their own rights and powers and suspicious of any central national government
  • contained only 4,000,000 people spread up and down a thousand miles of Atlantic seaboard barely connected by transportation or communication (so that national campaigns were impractical even if they had been thought desirable)
  • believed, under the influence of such British political thinkers as Henry St. John Bolingbroke, that political parties were mischievous if not downright evil, and
