Congressman Ron Paul has called for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to be fired for his involvement in the AIG bailout scandal, adding that the fiasco proves the Fed should be stripped of its powers and audited.
Explosive emails released last week  could see Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner become embroiled in criminal charges for his role in a cover up that exposes the monumental criminality behind the $182.3 billion bailout of American International Group Inc.
In November and December 2008, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York instructed the bailed out AIG to hide from the public details regarding payments the insurance giant made to banks, including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Societe Generale SA.

“What are we up Against?” That is the title to this two man roundtable that took place in November at Restoration Weekend. Two very bright guys, Democrat Pollster Pat Caddell and writer David Horowitz talk about the Democrat Party and the condition of our nation. Caddell worked for Democratic presidential candidates George McGovern 1972, Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 1980, Gary Hart in 1984, Joe Biden in 1988, and Jerry Brown in 1992. Most AT readers know Horowitz well.
The two spend some time going into “the shadow party Democrats.” And Horowitz even thinks there is some good news in that we may be at the beginning of a kind of “Great Awakening.”
It’s a brilliant discussion in two parts. Each of the two are about 28 minutes long. Think you’re well informed? Well, carve out 56 minutes one day soon and watch both of these videos to see for yourself. You won’t regret it.
Pastor James David Manning, one of President Obama’s most vocal and outspoken critics, has just released a video yesterday in which he is charging Columbia University with treason and is taking them to court. Pastor Manning alleges that Obama never went to the school and that he actually bought the degree. Pastor Manning states that Obama was instead in Afghanistan during the period of time from 1981 to 1983, working for Al Qaeda, when Obama was supposedly attending Columbia. Most of what we know about Barack Obama comes from Chicago corruption trial transcripts, Illinois records such as the IL bar,…

Is it too early to start speculating about the 2012 GOP presidential primaries? Of course not! The race promises to be a chaotic free-for-all of backbiting and recrimination, flip-flops and opportunistic conversions, feigned outrage and vicious attacks over meaningless non-issues. Throw in the fact that the force within the party with the most energy right now – the teabaggers – are not exactly known for their restraint, and it should be a hoot.
I’ve long held that if Sarah Palin runs, her campaign will surely be the most entertaining train wreck to hit American politics in decades. But when I read Nate Silver’s case that her chances of winning the nomination are actually pretty good, I was reminded of something fundamental that Palin has going for her. Way back in 2007, I wrote a two-part piece on the importance of narrative to a presidential candidacy. I argued that no one on the Republican side was really telling a story about why they were running, while on the Democratic side, only one candidate – a certain young whippersnapper from Illinois who at the time was a serious longshot – had really thought through what his narrative was.
Looking ahead to 2012, if there’s a candidate who has a good story to tell, it’s got to be Palin. You might call her story “10 Things They Hate About You (and Me).” It’s a well-worn tale of cultural resentment, one saying that those elitist/socialist/godless/coastal/immigrant-loving/not-real-American bastards took over the country and are driving us to ruin as they sneer down their noses at you. It has the three essential parts of the campaign narrative: it says what’s wrong with the country; it says where the candidate wants to take the country; and it says why the candidate, and only the candidate, is the person to do it. Palin has always practiced a very personal politics, one that portrays her as a martyr endlessly suffering an onslaught of slings and arrows from the kind of people you just can’t stand – if you’re a real American, that is. If it turns out that she doesn’t know a thing about policy, well that’s because she’s just like you – not some soulless policy wonk, but a real person. If it turns out that her teenage daughter got pregnant, it’s not because her rhetoric about abstinence is a joke, it’s because she’s just like you – she knows what it’s like to have family struggles. And all the attention to her soap opera life just confirms that the liberals hate her, which is the best credential a Republican can sport.
Just thinking……. What if Barack Obama was adopted by Barack, Sr. and Stanley Dunham Obama in 1961? There are some who say Ann wasn’t pregnant in 1961. There is some evidence (a photo) that Barak, Sr. was already acquainted with the Dunham family prior to 1960. No proof of a birth location in Hawaii. No evidence of them living together as a couple or as a family. Ann showed up in Washington state and visited her friend bringing her 2-3 week old baby and she was enrolled in the University there in fall, 1961. Then she had a babysitter and…

However, this is not to say they are not trying. Vice President Biden 2009 gaffes included talking about a tunnel (designed for trains) “which is designed to for automobile traffic.”, forgetting Justice Steven’s name, telling people to “call his website”, and swearing at former Senate colleague who greeted him as “Mr. Vice President.” The Washington Times experienced first-hand how Mr. Biden’s handlers kept the Vice President’s missteps to a minimum. During the special election up in New York’s 23rd…
