RACISM – AMERICA’S NEW BEST FRIEND ©

by Norman Liebmann

The Negroes finally got their own President and the President finally got his own Negroes – of whom, paradoxically, many are white, and whose attitude can be described as “blacker than thou”. It is time to lift the dark overcast hovering over the nation called the Obama Administration, which is, in fact, not an Administration but a Usurpation.

Today we consider why the nation was purposefully bankrupted. Everyone knows “change” arrives to replace Constitutional America. Everyone knows that is the purpose of “change.” “Change” looks and seemingly acts like socialism, but far more resembles communism looking and acting like that kind of a duck.

SPEAKER PELOSI’S LATEST MOVE TO REGULATE THE NEWS By Roger Arnoff

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder announcing her intentions to hold a hearing on the issue of newspaper consolidation in the San Francisco Bay area, citing anti-trust laws as a potential avenue to do something about this. The hearing would be by the Courts & Competition Policy Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, according to Pelosi’s letter.

While clearly there are serious issues engulfing the newspaper industry, in San Francisco and elsewhere, the problem isn’t one of anti-trust violations. Pelosi has made her feelings known. She would like a return to the Fairness Doctrine. This is a nose under the tent.

BEING QUEER IS A SEXUAL DISORDER By David R. Usher

There is no finer metaphor for “pretzel logic” than the issue of “gay rights”. The contemporary addiction to “gay” liberation is no less dangerous or mind-altering than being addicted to heroine.

Being gay is a sexual disorder the American Psychological Association does not recognize because it drove out Division leaders and members who recognized sexual addiction for what it is. Gay men have eight times more sexual partners than heterosexual men do, and are the prevalent reason why 3% of individuals living in Washington D.C. are infected with H.I.V – on par with AIDS crisis countries such as Kenya.

Speaking frankly, I know what goes on in the gay community having been invited to a few gay parties. The real party is in the bathroom. The parade goes both ways all night with any number of people in there at one time. It’s a crack house for sex addicts.

Is there any gold inside Fort Knox, the world’s most secure vault?

Times Online (UK) ^ | March 28, 2009 | Chris Ayres

Posted on Sunday, March 29, 2009 11:03:26 PM by Beelzebubba

For several prominent investors and at least one senior US congressman it is not the security of the facility in Kentucky that is a cause of concern: it is the matter of how much gold remains stored there – and who owns it.

They are worried that no independent auditors appear to have had access to the reported $137 billion (£96 billion) stockpile of brick-shaped gold bars in Fort Knox since the era of President Eisenhower. After the risky trading activities at supposedly safe institutions such as AIG they want to be reassured that the gold reserves are still the exclusive property of the US and have not been used to fund risky transactions. …

“It has been several decades since the gold in Fort Knox was independently audited or properly accounted for,” said Ron Paul, the Texas Congressman and former Republican presidential candidate, in an e-mail interview with The Times. “The American people deserve to know the truth.”

Mr Paul has so far attracted 21 co-sponsors for a Bill to conduct an independent audit of the Federal Reserve System – including its claims to Fort Knox gold…

… Many gold investors suspect that the US has periodically attempted to flood the market with Fort Knox gold to keep prices low and the dollar high – perhaps through international swap agreements with other central banks – but facts remain scarce and the US Treasury denies that any such meddling has gone on for at least the past decade. …

On a beautiful sunny day in 2004, the villagers of Banda Aceh in Sumatra were peacefully minding their own business when out of nowhere a tsunami washed them away:

Substitute the Before photo with America today. The After photo is what America is going to look like in the wake of Zero.

If you think this is hyperbolic then you haven’t come to grips with the consequences of hyper-inflation. If you did, you be like what the Banda Aceh folks would have been if they’d had any warning: in panicked flight to higher ground.

And here’s the kicker: with hyper-inflation comes hyper-fascism. The worse our economy becomes, the more our freedoms will be taken away.

Folks – this is being done on purpose. If it were all due to sheer stupidity or incompetence on Zero’s part, you would expect, as “Skye” observes on the Forum, coin-flip outcomes with at least some of them correct.

But when all actions are taken to disincentivize wealth creation and expand government control, to destroy the worth of the dollar and not increase it, then the damage is malicious and purposeful.

So here is what is really going on: the President of the United States is making a conscious concerted effort to replace capitalism with fascism. And not just in the United States but world-wide.

Here it is straight from the shoulder. There has been some uneasiness expressed by a few ToThePointers regarding my referring to the current President of the United States as “Zero.”

Florida Gov’t Cancels Tea Party Fearing ‘Too Many Attendees’

Remember this report from our nation’s history?

CNN (Continental News Network) Boston, 1773: The city of Boston canceled a proposed protest over tea taxes today, citing the fear that too many people dressed as Indians would be gathered near the wharves. Organizers expressed sadness over the cancellation, but meekly returned to their homes fearful of upsetting the officers of the Crown. Taxmen breathed a sigh of relief as the tar and feathers were put away not to be used this day.

You don’t remember that pre-revolutionary history? I should say you shouldn’t, because it didn’t happen. But flash forward a few hundred years and you’ll find it is happening today in Cape Coral, Florida where city officials canceled a tax day tea party gathering because they “feel too many people could show-up.”

The man who created two phenomenally successful “We The People” YouTube videos urging Americans to stand up against Congress and reclaim their republic now – or perhaps lose it forever – reportedly has been summoned to the White House by President Obama to discuss the subject matter of the short films.

Bob Basso, who posts videos under the name funbobbasso on YouTube, has created videos in which he portrays Thomas Paine, author of the “Common Sense” pamphlet that made the case for independence during the American Revolution.

Basso, whose website offers his services as a motivational speaker, uses the YouTube presentations to condemn “non-representing representatives” and warns, “Only when they feel the almighty wrath of ‘We The People’ marching in the streets from California to New York shouting ‘We’re mad as hell and we want our country back’ will they get the message they work for you.”

(Story continues below)

He was scheduled this week to appear on the “Jerry Doyle Show” when he told the radio host that Obama had personally invited him to meet in the White House “to discuss the disturbing nature of the videos.”

According to a spokesman for Doyle’s show, at the time when Basso was supposed to be calling in for the show, he was unavailable. Basso reached the show several hours later, explaining he had been flooded by media calls and literally was unable to call out.

The result, the spokesman said, was that Basso promised to provide Doyle with the first exclusive interview after he meets with Obama, provided the invitation still stands after the meeting was leaked to the press.

The spokesman said information about the meeting has not been made public, and show producers are waiting to see what develops. A WND message left for Basso was not immediately returned

A lawyer spearheading the effort in Washington state to bring light to the issue of Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president says he was shadowed all day today by officers with the federal Department of Homeland Security, the Snohomish County sheriff’s office and the Everitt city police department.

“There’s definitely observation,” attorney Stephen Pidgeon told WND. “Maybe observation in anticipation of making an arrest.”

Pidgeon has been the attorney for Washington state plaintiffs challenging Obama’s eligibility to be president under the Constitution’s demand for that office to be occupied only by a “natural born” citizen. Dozens of similar cases have been filed around the country since the election and many have been dismissed, often because judges rule the plaintiffs don’t have “standing” to bring a complaint.

The Washington state case, however, cites state law that vests in citizens the right to raise questions about an elected official’s authority, effectively granting standing to those plaintiffs.

The case, although it has been filed, has not been brought to court for hearings yet.

An ex-military officer has raised the stakes in the ongoing dispute over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, filing a criminal complaint against the “imposter” with the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Tennessee.

Retired U.S. Navy officer Walter Francis Fitzpatrick III, who has run a campaign for two decades to uncover and try to correct what he believes are criminal activities within the military, accused the president of “treason.”

In his complaint addressed to Obama via U.S Attorney Russell Dedrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Schmutzer, Eastern District, Tennessee, Fitzpatrick wrote: “I have observed and extensively recorded invidious attacks by military-political aristocrats against the Constitution for twenty years.

(Story continues below)

“Now you have broken in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling, and deceit. Posing as an impostor president and commander in chief you have stripped civilian command and control over the military establishment.”

He cited the deployment of “U.S. Army active duty combat troops into the small civilian community of Samson, Ala.,” and said, “We come now to this reckoning. I accuse you and your military-political criminal assistants of TREASON. I name you and your military criminal associates as traitors. Your criminal ascension manifests a clear and present danger. You fundamentally changed our form of government. The Constitution no longer works.

INCOME TAX: WHY WE HAVE IT by Alan Stang

March 26, 2009 1 comment

NewsWithViews.com

[Announcement: Did you know Alan Stang has a new radio show? Click here for details.]

Tote that barge, lift that bale, and make sure you pay on time. April 15th approaches and my guess is that only a relative handful of Americans knows why we have the income tax. With rare exceptions, they will exclaim that we must have the income tax to “pay the expenses of the government.” Of course the truth is exactly the opposite. The income tax has nothing to do with paying the expenses of the government.

First an obvious fact, something you already know. When was the country created? Pick a date. Many would pick July 4th, 1776, when the Continental Congress adopted the nation’s birth certificate, the Declaration of Independence. Many others would pick the date of ratification of the Constitution. Let’s arbitrarily use 1776.

Now, when did we get the income tax? Except for the temporary income tax during Lincoln’s Communist War to Destroy the Union, there was no income tax in this country until 1913, when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld its validity in Brushaber, 240 U.S. 1. Indeed, even then it did not affect more than a handful of our people.

As late as 1942, only 3% of our people paid income tax. Until that date, most people probably had heard of it, but they didn’t pay it and had never seen the form. It didn’t apply to them. Indeed, if you check the records, you will see that in 1941, when the reader may have already been alive, the federal government collected more in alcohol and tobacco taxes than it did in income tax. Remember “moonshine” and the “revenooers?”

Memorandum: WHITE PAPER DISCUSSION — NOT CLASSIFIED

PROTECTIVE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNICATION PI: 126:09 NOT CLASSIFIED — PUBLIC DISSEMINATION

March the 16th, 2009

Statement of Purpose: The content of this White Paper is deliberately intended to stimulate thought and discussion. Informational analysis comprising global security, national security of the United States of America, socio-political-economic forces as a dimension to national security, culture, freedom in human rights, defense and the rule of law are considered within the framework of this treatise.

Overview: Beginning as campaign rhetoric, the question of Barak Obama’s legal status as a citizen of the United States of America qualified to serve as President, is moving toward a crescendo that might be heard formally by the United States Supreme Court. Downplayed by many, including U.S. Senators on the Republican side and even Senators serving on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee as late as Friday of last week, a significant meeting occurred last Thursday, March 12th in Idaho. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court was speaking before a large audience (800 in attendance, including the President of the Idaho State Bar Association) on the character of Abraham Lincoln, when attorney Orly Taitz of Mission Viejo, California came to the microphone and asked the Chief Justice if he would personally review a legal brief and a complaint signed by over 325,000 American citizens as to the Constitutionality of Barak Obama’s swearing-in as President. Chief Justice Roberts personally agreed to review the legal brief and the complaint saying such in front of the audience.

Barack Obama

WND Editor Joseph Farah notices the White House website is open for questions directly from the American people today and urges the public to raise the one issue that is troubling millions – where’s the birth certificate?

In just the last few months, nearly 350,000 people have signed WND’s petition asking any and all controlling legal authorities to demand proof of Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president as a “natural born citizen.” Dozens of lawsuits have been filed and some have been reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet Obama continues to fight all attempts by the public to see his long-form birth certificate that would prove he was really born in Hawaii – releasing instead to select news organizations only a certification of live birth which could have been issued to someone born outside the country.

(Story continues below)

“This is another opportunity for the American people to be heard,” says Farah. “Obama promises to answer ‘some of the most popular’ questions in an online townhall meeting Thursday. With all of his broken promises, let’s see if he’ll keep this one – and his pledge to run the most open, transparent government in American history.”

Farah urges Americans to continue signing the petition on WND. He also suggests those who ask questions of the White House today post copies at the WND Forum “MR. PRESIDENT!”

WASHINGTON — The number of significant pro-Iran lobbyists has grown and key players have gained access to the new administration of President Barak Obama, a report said.

The Center for Security Policy said veteran Iranian lobbyists, several of them former government officials, have been granted access to the Obama administration.

“A complex network of individuals and organizations with ties to the clerical regime in Teheran is pressing forward in seeming synchrony to influence the new U.S. administration’s policy towards the Islamic republic of Iran,” the report, titled “Rise of the Iran Lobby,” said.

Could the govenment ban guns?

Waynesville Daily Guide ^ | 24 March, 2009 | DawnDee Bostwick

Posted on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 8:28:12 AM by marktwain

The week Barack Obama was elected president, the amount of criminal background checks related to the purchase of firearms jumped 49 percent over the previous year, FBI statistics show.

It’s a trend that hasn’t ceased to stop, as background checks for firearm purchases have continued to increase in the months following the November election, when compared to the same time a year ago. February alone witnessed a 23.3 percent jump, and January and December weren’t too far ahead, with 29 and 24 percent increases, respectively.

Fears of possible anti-gun legislation that’s being considered by the Obama administration might be contributing to the rise in sales, as well as the teeter-tottering economy. The angst seems to be somewhat legitimate, although at this time it’s unclear whether a push to reinstate the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, commonly referred to as the “assault weapons ban” will be successful.

“Well, as President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons,” Attorney General Eric Holder said during a press conference last month that focused on growing violence in Mexico.

Editor’s Note: The following report is excerpted from Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert, the premium online newsletter published by the current No. 1 best-selling author, WND staff writer and columnist. Subscriptions are $99 a year or $9.95 per month for credit card users. Annual subscribers will receive a free autographed copy of “The Late Great USA,” a book about the careful deceptions of a powerful elite who want to undermine our nation’s sovereignty.

France’s trade unions staged a national strike protesting the economic downturn and causing a one-day stoppage in rail, air and local transport throughout the country on Thursday. Similar protests in the United States this summer are becoming increasingly likely, as tent cities for the homeless are springing up in dozens of U.S. cities, Jerome Corsi’s Red Alert reports.

More than 1 million people took to the streets throughout France Thursday as a national poll showed 74 percent of the French supported the protest.

This followed a one-day national strike in January that sent hundreds of thousands of French workers to the streets, protesting job cuts and demanding higher welfare payments to cushion the impact of the economic crisis.

The mass protests in France are evidence of the increasing economic distress being felt in the EU from the global economic downturn, Corsi wrote…

The mysterious “Frank” cited as a friend and adviser by Democratic president contender Barack Obama while he was growing up in Hawaii has been identified as Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the old Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA.

The identification comes from Cliff Kincaid in his column, “Obama’s Communist Mentor,” which was made available on the Accuracy in Media website.

“Let’s challenge the liberal media to report on this,” he wrote in his column. “Will they have the honesty and integrity to do so?”

Kincaid, who earlier reported on Obama’s pending plan to ship $845 billion overseas to battle “global poverty” as evidence of his socialist leanings, said the newly revealed connection is even more worrisome.

“Obama’s communist connection adds to mounting public concern about a candidate who has come out of virtually nowhere, with a brief U.S. Senate legislative record, to become the Democratic Party frontrunner for the U.S. presidency,” he wrote.

In Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father,” he repeatedly refers to his friend and adviser as “Frank.”

WorldNetDaily

Two years ago, a Pennsylvania man was thrown in jail for 160 days for refusing to allow police to take his picture.

A federal judge last week, however, ruled against local police and in favor of Gregory Bush, who was not charged with any crime on May 17, 2007, when a Lancaster, Pa., officer demanded to take the man’s photo. Only after refusing to have his picture taken did the police subdue him, charge him with obstruction of justice and toss him in jail.

“When they first arrested me, I didn’t even know why I was being arrested,” Bush told Lancaster’s Sunday News. “I kept thinking the charge would be dropped at the preliminary hearing. It was ridiculous; I didn’t commit any crime.”

Five months later, however, Bush was still in jail.

According to the federal lawsuit, Bush had been among several men helping his cousin move out of a home, when an argument broke out, prompting a call to police over fears one of the men had a gun.

Natural Born is Not Ambiguous

Stupidica ^ | 3/24/2009 | Uncredited

Posted on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 7:19:49 AM by AJMCQ

The words “natural born” are depicted in fact. The word “Citizenship” relates to a legal status. “Citizen” when used alone is defined within the US constitution in Amendment XIV to describe what persons would fall into the category of US Citizenship. There also are several points of reference describing US citizenship including USC Title 8 and precedent setting cases (US v. Wong Kim Ark and Perkins v Elg). Meanwhile there are no laws or precedents existing to describe those who may or may not be a “natural born Citizen”. This is most likely because “natural born citizen” is not a legal status. It is a statement of fact. The other reason is because this unique qualification only applies to the President of the United States. To the best of my knowledge, there are no other distinctions between a “citizen” (natural, native, naturalized, or other) and a natural born Citizen. The qualifier “natural born” means that one’s “Citizenship” is absent of ambiguity – meaning both of your parents were US citizens & you were born on US soil. According to the writings of the framers of the constitution, this qualifier was put in to avoid any loyalties to any other country and at the time in particular, England. Provisions were put in to allow those who were Citizens at the time of the signing to become President.

JUSTICE AND THE LOYALTY OATH: A SOCRATIC ISSUE By Professor Paul Eidelberg

March 25, 2009 Leave a comment

March 25, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Avigdor Lieberman has been accused of racism for proposing a loyalty oath for Arab citizens of Israel. I’m no fan of Mr. Lieberman, but this charge of his being a racist is absurd. It has been well-established that most Arab citizens of Israel, while enjoying all the rights of this country, nonetheless identity with its enemies. Justice demands that those who enjoy the rights of citizenship fulfill the duties of citizenship. Otherwise, justice would be reduced to indiscriminate egalitarianism–¬the tendency in Israel whose ruling elites derive their legitimacy and respectability from Israel’s reputation as a “democracy.”

Justice is the central theme of Plato’s greatest dialogue, the Republic. What has this dialogue to do with a loyalty vote for Israeli Arabs? Let us proceed step by step.

ANOTHER COMMUNIST TERRORIST TO BE FREE By Cliff Kincaid

Another one of Bill Ayers’ and Bernardine Dohrn’s terrorist comrades is being released on the streets of America. Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), an off-shoot of the Weather Underground, has served only seven years for involvement in the murder of a bank customer and the attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers by bombing their cars.

Meanwhile, justice continues to be sought for the victims of Weather Underground terrorism such as San Francisco Police Sergeant Brian V. McDonnell, who was killed by a bomb on February 16, 1970. Former FBI informant Larry Grathwohl has testified under oath that Ayers told him that Dohrn planted the bomb. The case has been re-opened and evidence is still being gathered.

In the midst of a recent diatribe, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a crowd of illegal aliens and their advocates that federal or local law enforcement of existing immigration laws is “un-American.”

Pelosi, an avowed liberal-left Democrat from San Francisco, condemned operations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Then she called the illegal aliens in the audience she was addressing “very, very patriotic.”

“Who in this country would not want to change a policy of kicking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families?” Pelosi said to a mostly Hispanic gathering at St. Anthony’s Church in San Francisco.

Unbeknownst to Pelosi, her speech was being taperecorded and the audiotape was played by syndicated talk show host Mark Levin on Wednesday night and Fox News Channel on Thursday morning.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FINALLY CATCHING UP TO THE DEWEESE REPORT By Tom DeWeese

Again and again, The DeWeese Report has told you that the real agenda we face is a global one called Sustainable Development, as outlined in the UN’s soft-law document called Agenda 21. We’ve warned that this policy is designed to establish the United Nations as the main force for imposing global government, replacing national sovereignty, controlling the economy and the population, and that it is based on a strange mixture of Socialism and Fascism. Time and again, we’ve reported that global governance is a euphemism for global government. In addition, we’ve exposed the world-wide environmental movement as the driving force for such policies, working toward a wrenching transformation of the world economy, using the environment as the center (or the excuse) for such policy.

I think that about sums up what The DeWeese Report has been focused on for our entire existence. And for that entire time, forces in the federal government, in the UN, and NGO’s in the Environmental movement have universally denied it, saying we were fringe fanatics and silly conspiracy theorists.

Victor Davis Hanson: Thoughts About Depressed Americans

Why are so many Americans so depressed about things these days? It is perhaps not just the economy.

I think the answer is clear: all the accustomed referents, the sources of security, of knowledge and reassurance appear to be vanishing. Materially, we still enjoy a sumptuous lifestyle in comparison with past generations—and the world outside our borders. America remains the most sane and successful society on the planet.

But there is a strange foreboding, a deer-in-the-headlights look to us that we may be clueless Greeks in the age of Demosthenes, played-out Romans around AD 450, or give-up French in late 1939—with a sense it cannot go on. Why? Let us count the ways….

Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq. just received a phone call from Karen Thornton at the Department of Justice. She stated that all of Orly’s documents and filings have been forwarded to the Office of Solicitor General, Elena Kagan. That includes all three Dossiers, the Quo Warranto Easterling v. Obama aka Soetoro. Please show your support that we want these matters and investigations looked into immediately, 202-514-2203.

Coincidently, after Dr. Taitz called me with that update, she received another call from Officer Giaccino at the Supreme Court. Officer Giaccino stated both pleadings have been received and being analyzed now. Also, Justice Roberts must be back because the Officer also stated that all the documents that were given to Chief Justice Roberts at Iowan University are now at the Supreme Court and are also being analyzed. We will be notified tomorrow after 1:00pm EST as to whether they will be on the docket at the Supreme Court.

Computer Virus ‘Time Bomb’ Could Go Off April

The Conficker Internet worm could strike at infected computers around the world on April 1, a security expert warned Monday. Conficker is a sophisticated piece of malicious computer software, or malware, that installs itself on a Windows PC’s hard drive via specially written Web pages. It then conceals itself on a computer. Graham Cluley of the British security firm Sophos confirmed that Conficker is programmed “to hunt for new instructions on April 1.” However, he added, “This does not mean that anything is going to happen, or that the worm is actually going to do anything. Simply, it is scheduled to hunt a wider range of Web sites for instructions on that date.” One strange thing about Conficker is that no one yet has any idea what it is programmed to do. In February, Cluley told The Times: “It’s as if someone is assembling an army of computers around the world, but hasn’t yet decided where to point them.” A worst-case scenario for April 1 would be for all the world’s millions of infected computers to receive simultaneous instructions to attack, or to flood the Internet with spam e-mail.

The Obama Justice Department instructed San Francisco police officials not to comment after top law enforcement officers there signed a letter accusing Weathermen radical Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, of being directly behind the 1970 bombing of San Francisco’s police station that killed one sergeant and wounded nine others.

At a press conference March 12 directed by activist Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival Inc, the leaders of the San Francisco Police Officers’ Association made public a letter pointing a finger at Ayers and Dohrn that demands those responsible for the bombing be brought to justice.

U.S. Rep. Bill Posey

A new member of Congress arrived in Washington to a flood of questions from his constituency about Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president: Was he really born in the United States, and was he qualified under the Constitution’s requirement that the office be occupied only by a “natural born” citizen?

So U.S. Rep. Bill Posey did what most congressmen would do regarding a subject of grave concern to their voters: He proposed a bill that would require future presidential candidates to document their eligibility. And that has earned him scorn and ridicule.

THE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS IS ALREADY HERE By Lynn Stuter

March 24, 2009 Leave a comment

March 24, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Many have foretold the coming of a constitutional crisis if Also Known As (AKA) Obama does not produce the documents proving his eligibility to the office of president. AKA has made it very apparent that he does not intend to produce the documents willingly because to do so would show that he knew he was ineligible from the outset; that the only conspiracy in this matter was the conspiracy in which he engaged to defraud the American people.

Congress, at the time fully aware of the evidence proving AKA ineligible, refused to object to the certifying of the Electoral College on January 8, 2009. Further, and after the fact, they continue to make such inane and stupid claims as “he’s produced his birth certificate”; “he was born in Hawaii”; “he has been vetted by the vote of the people” knowing full well that such is not true.

The Supreme Court and lower courts refuse to address the issue, making such inane claims as “standing”, “moot after the fact”, “frivolous”; or no comment at all. In Allen v Bowen, the judge dismissed, claiming it the duty of Congress to address the matter at the time of the certifying of the electoral college; that outside that objection, no legal remedy exists.

In another recent case, Hollister v Soetoro, Federal Judge James Robertson dismissed, claiming …

“The issue of the president’s citizenship was raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered, and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obama’s two-year-campaign for the presidency…”

Not only is this a lie, but in stating this, Judge Robertson violated judicial canons wherein judges are to refrain from making decisions based on facts not in evidence. It is very apparent that Judge Robertson made this statement based on personal opinion or on information he obtained outside the scope of the pleadings before him.

If ever there was a case of judicial misconduct, Judge James Robertson is a candidate.

When an American citizen had the temerity to call Robertson on the carpet for his conduct, that citizen was visited and threatened by U.S. Marshall’s in a manner reminiscent of Hitler’s Gestapo.

By now, readers should be familiar with the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report dated 02/20/09 and titled, “MIAC Strategic Report: The Modern Militia Movement.” In this dreadfully malicious and slanderous “law enforcement sensitive” secret police report, Governor Jeremiah (Jay) Nixon; John Britt, Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety; James Keathley, Colonel, Missouri State Highway Patrol; and Van Godsey, Director of MIAC categorize certain citizens as being potential violence-prone “militia members.” I would venture to guess that more than 75% of the entire population of the United States would fit the MIAC’s broad definition of someone who would fall into the aforementioned category.

LET IT DIE
by Douglas Rushkoff

March 15, 2009

With any luck, the economy will never recover.

In a perfect world, the stock market would decline another 70 or 80 percent along with the shuttering of about that fraction of our nation’s banks. Yes, unemployment would rise as hundreds of thousands of formerly well-paid brokers and bankers lost their jobs; but at least they would no longer be extracting wealth at our expense. They would need to be fed, but that would be a lot cheaper than keeping them in the luxurious conditions they’re enjoying now. Even Bernie Madoff costs us less in jail than he does on Park Avenue.

Alas, I’m not being sarcastic. If you had spent the last decade, as I have, reviewing the way a centralized economic plan ravaged the real world over the past 500 years, you would appreciate the current financial meltdown for what it is: a comeuppance. This is the sound of the other shoe dropping; it’s what happens when the chickens come home to roost; it’s justice, equilibrium reasserting itself, and ultimately a good thing.

The Communization of a President
by Al Benson Jr.

Very recently, a Christian friend in Georgia sent me some information about a website called The Obama File (link at end of this article) that I feel all thinking Americans, North and South, should really take time to go and look at. It is an in depth look at the current president of the United States and just how far to the left he really is. I went into this website and checked out just one section of the info on him, the section on his political views. That section, alone, covered 93 pages. I can only imagine how much material is covered in the other sections.

Mr. Obama may not be a Communist, but he is the closest thing to it that you can possibly be without actually being one. His political views are on the extreme left, which I am sure most Americans, thanks to our prostitute press, have no real conception of.

The Obama File states the following: “Barack Obama was born of Marxists; mentored by a communist writer and activist; spent his college days hanging around radical activists; worked as a radical community organizer, learning the radical tactics of the communist, Alinsky; attended a radical church; was introduced to Chicago politics by a communist in the home of another communist;  and today lends his political skills to the international goals of radical activists, and had radicals working on his campaign and in his administration.” Not exactly a glowing commendation!

WorldNetDaily reported this weekend that a Kansas-based blog, MsPlacedDemocrat.com, has been frequented by someone at the Supreme Court:

Having done a “tracert” on 209.144.137.1 certainly does show this particular IP address to be originating from washington.savvis.net. Further, sitemeter.com — the “software” to which the article refers — is a very good web-based service used by many sites to track many different aspects of web traffic to and from one’s site. I have similarly just begun using sitemeter.com for this site, though I’ve been using my own internal, back-end WordPress plugins to track things as well as Google’s Analytics tool.

What I will caution my readers on, however, is that all that the IP confirms is that someone is using the Supreme Court’s account to look at web pages; we do not know, simply based on the above statistical analysis, whether or not it’s an actual Justice (which I highly doubt, for a number of reasons). Further, the last digit in the IP address is a “1,” and typically most PCs or Macs that use the Internet from within a given account are not assigned such a low number. In other words, this could very well be what’s known as a gateway or router into the SCOTUS offices or other facility.

Watched 60′ tonite–haven’t done that in a long time.

I recall all the crooks, politicians, and basturds in general that 60′ has interviewed through the years only to see a 60′ update some time later indicating that John Law had locked up the interviewee–usually as a direct result or partly because of the interview.

The question always comes up, why in the world did he/she consent to the interview knowing that such people so frequently end up in the slammer as a result?

Many times the same question, many times the same answer–because he couldn’t resist it, and besides, he thought he could get away with it.

Yeah.

Explosive new Rasmussen report: Americans want Obama to accept Geithner’s resignation or boot him

The Collins Report ^ | March 23, 2009 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

Posted on Monday, March 23, 2009 9:16:11 AM by jmaroneps37

An explosive new Rasmussen report screams, “America wants Tim Geithner dumped!”

Washington insiders both Democrats and Republicans (including McCain of course) love him, but we want him gone. The disconnect between Washington and real America on Geithner is startlingly large.

The gang on Capital Hill might be fooled or afraid to say otherwise, but average Americans aren’t. The latest telephone survey tells a very different story. Only 12% of taxpaying Americans have a favorable opinion of Geithner and only 11% said his job performance so far is good or excellent.

Tax cheat Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was appointed without any genuine qualifications. Now only Obama’s incompetence overshadows his own bungling ineptitude.

His “deer in the headlights” reaction to Barack Obama’s recession has exposed him as a fraud. When his tax cheating and employing an illegal alien is added to his inability to improve things, Main Street doesn’t like him and wants him gone.

Rasmussen reports the chasm between Washington and Main Street is huge and irreparable. The Washington crowd thinks Geithner is doing a fine job. More than 3 of 4 have a favorable opinion of him with two thirds saying he is doing a good or excellent job handling Obama’s recession. Three quarters of Americans think otherwise.

Among all respondents, his favorable/unfavorable numbers are sharply different at 24/44, but his “good or excellent” versus “poor” ratings are still worse.

On the question of whether Geithner’s work could be described as POOR, 53% of real Americans tagged Tax Cheat Tim with that rating and NOT A SINGLE politician used it.

Whether Geithner will resign or be fired is now a question of how quickly Obama throws him under the bus, which may be soon. If Obama threw his White grandmother between the Greyhound’s wheels, Geithner should keep his bags packed.

In American history and government classes across this country, we still teach our children that our founding fathers demonstrated genius both in articulating the inalienable rights belonging to each person in our Declaration of Independence, and then in preserving those rights in our Constitution.

Their sole and emphatic purpose in imposing a system of checks and balances among the three branches of the federal government was to prevent the accumulation of power; and in imposing a system of federalism between the national and state governments to prevent the usurpation of authority rightfully belonging to the states or to the people. The genius, then, was not only in proclaiming the natural rights of man, but also in acknowledging the need to protect those rights from man’s natural desire for power.

The definition of a citizen is one who is ruled and can rule in turn. We must have the capacity for both under the law. All citizens must be able to take the following oath of office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.”

Sadly, in today’s day and age, those elected to our legislature do not have to understand the law to represent their electors. Consequently, this Congress has proven to be the most constitutionally illiterate group of people ever elected to office.

OPRAH IS HARPO ON VIOLENT WOMEN by Marc H. Rudov

March 23, 2009 Leave a comment

March 23, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Oprah Winfrey is increasing domestic violence in America. By being Harpo — remaining silent — on the truth about violent women, she unwittingly perpetuates the problem. Repeatedly excusing women’s culpability and unfairly blaming men only serves to foment this pernicious societal scourge.

On March 19, 2009, Oprah aired an anti-male show about domestic violence (DV), to capitalize on the biggest news story: Rihanna. Oprah holds men totally responsible for both causing and ending DV. Outrageous! Nowhere on her show was mention of all-too-common incidents of female violence such as those involving actress Kelly Bensimon and NFL player Geno Hayes.

Instead, Oprah stridently cautioned her female audience: If he hits, he’ll hit again. Fair enough. Missing from her mantra, though, was: Never hit a man — out of anger, revenge, jealousy, hormone imbalance, or any reason whatsoever! Also absent from Oprah’s show was a reciprocal warning to men: If she hits, she’ll hit again.

Acceptable Marginalization of Men

Why is the DV situation so unfair & unbalanced? Americans — especially male citizens, talkshow hosts, journalists, politicians, and judges — not only trivialize female-on-male violence, they laugh at it.
