Michigan And Arizona Republican Primary Night

Update: Is it Michigeddon for Romney tonight? All the polls close at 9:00 although some close at 8:00 ET.

Is it Ariztopia? All the polls close at 9:00 p.m. ET there too.

——————————————————————————————

We’ve always wondered why Mitt Romney never made Michigan the centerpiece of his campaign. Why, didn’t Romney ever make it clear that he could win Michigan in the general election (as well as Nevada) and therefore the Obama campaign would collapse in November? Well, now we know why.

If Romney loses Michigan tonight he is the bride stripped bare. But, if Mitt Romney wins Michigan tonight he can still make the case we thought would be a winner for him, but with diminished credibility (unless it is a big win). Tonight we will soon enough find out how strong Romney’s claim to Michigan is but we do know that the Obama campaign is worried:

“What you’re seeing here. Michigan is very key here in a national election. More important to democrats. Democrats, Obama has to have this state. If Obama and Romney are fighting over Ohio, that’s a swing state. If they’re fighting over Michigan, Obama’s in trouble. And, I think that’s why you’ve seen this extraordinary effort by the Obama camp during this last week to interfere in this primary. They’re running ads about the auto bailout which Obama thinks plays well here, trying to mobilize that base, that auto base in getting them primed for the general.”



The Obama campaign and the DailyKooks are trying to destroy Mitt Romney in Michigan. It’s why the tin plated calf gave a speech today of all days to the United Automobile Workers. The strategy might work. But, as the saying goes, “that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

If Mitt Romney thinks he has a difficult time, if Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul think they have had a hard time with these powderpuff “dirty tricks” they are fools. It’s going to be much uglier and much dirtier for the eventual nominee. That’s why for all the yelping about how the nomination race hurts them, the bottom line for Republicans is that the tough and ugly nomination fight is making them stronger and better able to react and respond to the slime machine from Chicago.

As to Rick Santorum, we frankly can’t stand the sanctimonious slow-blinker, but tonight he can show that he can actually win blue collar voters. Having lost his last general election race by double digits Santorum has to prove his claim of being able to get those white working class voters to actually vote for him. This does not mean trying to get non-Republican votes in order to eek out a victory as the sanctimonious slow-blinker has done.

It is appropriate for Mitt Romney to blast Santorum for robocalling Democrats in the open Michigan primary because this is not an actual expression of democratic support by the electorate but rather DailyKooks mischief making in order to deny Republicans the right to determine their own nominee. Hillary Clinton supporters recall with disgust the Republican led “Operation Chaos” contempt for the people’s will which took place in 2008.

We’ll know soon enough what happens in Michigan and pretty much everyone is agreed that Mitt Romney will win in Arizona. Newt is not playing in either state so it’s a Mitt and Rick show. We think Romney will win both states. We’ll be watching to see what the margins of victory are in both states.

    Well said, as always.

    ABO!!!!!!!!!!

  • gonzotx

    I am hoping Romney does pull both out. It really disgusted me to hear how RICKYSWEATERBOY was making these robo calls to the Dems. He is such a sanctimonious sleaze ball.

    I haven’t read the last thread yet but I assume you all know Olympia Snowe is not running for re election?

  • BASIL99

    Yup. Good riddance to the snow monster. Just hope the dims don’t pick up that seat in Nov.

    I agree that RS threw the repubs under the bus with the dim robocalls. It seems so treasonous to his party. I mean, it’s one thing if the other party organizes chaos but to have a pol from the party that’s primarying actually reach out to the opposition for their support seems unethical.

    I have been reading rants about the idiot repubs devising such a suicidal endless candidate selection process. Doesn’t seem like the brightest approach.

    If BO wins he will once again have the repubs to thank, just like in 2008.

    Dennis Budziszewski, 63, of Canton, is a retired auto worker and says he is a Democrat who is voting for Rick Santorum in the Michigan primary as a protest against Mitt Romney. / KIMBERLY P. MITCHELL/Detroit Free Press

    If Mitt Romney loses Michigan tonight, it could be because of people like Dennis Budziszewski, 63, of Canton.

    A diehard Democrat and retired autoworker, Budziszewski REALLY doesn’t like Romney, and instead cast a ballot for former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. Come November, he will vote for President Barack Obama.

    But today, he just wants to embarrass Romney.

    “I’ve been pushing this on Facebook for days,” he said. “There’s a very real possibility we can pull this off.”

    Some Democrats have put together a fairly organized effort to get Democrats to vote for Santorum or Ron Paul in order to rob victory from Romney. The Santorum campaign joined the effort Monday with a robocall aimed at Democrats urging them to vote for him because Romney opposed the bailouts of General Motors and Chrysler. The call didn’t note that Santorum also opposed the bailout.

    RELATED: The buzz on social media: Will Democrat votes make a difference in GOP primary?

    Romney called the effort a dirty trick by a desperate campaign. Other Romney supporters called the robocall “pathetic.”

    “This is no way for a person to act that wants to be the Republican nominee to take on President Obama in the fall,” said Saul Anuzis, a Republican national committeeman from Michigan.

    Budziszewski got two of those calls today, but he made up his mind about Romney long ago. He said Romney betrayed Detroit by opposing the federal auto bailout.

    Minutes after posting an inquiry on Facebook.com/detroitfreepress looking for Democratic crossover voters, a half-dozen voters had replied to the Free Press.

    Brad O’Donnell, 22, of Lansing said Republicans only have themselves to blame.

    “The Michigan Republican Party made a big mistake by basically inviting Democrats to vote in their primary,” said O’Donnell, a firm Obama supporter. “Voting for Santorum was a no-brainer. The longer the primary goes on, the more time there will be to find some more skeletons on Mitt Romney.”

    Herb Harris, 55, of Detroit joined a movement to have Obama supporters in Detroit vote for Ron Paul to get the Texas congressman some delegates from Detroit congressional districts.

    “It will make Romney look bad,” Harris said. “He was very offensive to Detroit. He brags about his five homes and that he’s a Michigander, but not one of those homes is in Michigan.”

    Elisabeth Steegman, 44, of Sterling Heights also voted for Santorum to help Obama.

    “My father is probably rolling over in his grave” because she voted for a Republican, Steegman said.

    Her father, a metal shop model maker, was a union steward at the GM Tech Center for years and made all of his eight children go out and vote Democrat, she said.

    “It’s one way to get a vote for the person you want to win. It’s a little stinky,” she admitted, but worth it.

    She has no qualms about not voting for Michigan’s own Mitt Romney for his lack of support for the auto bailouts.

    “He kind of turned his back on his own state,” she said. “That’s why I’m willing to turn my back on you, too.”

  • moononpluto

    At present Obama is only getting 83% in Michigan…….

  • jbstonesfan

    How he managed to managed to either lose or barely win his home state is
    very telling how poorly MItt has run is campaign. Please, Chris Christie save this

  • warehouse553

    Romney must win Michigan. If the tea party had just left everything alone, the race would already be over.

  • gonzotx

    8% ahead Romney

  • gonzotx

    that would have been 8 thousand votes, not 8%. I have to stop working nights

  • warehouse553

    This is just like Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. Hopefully after tonight, it will be over!

  • gonzotx

    same margin 28% in

  • Shadowfax

    You nailed it admin saying the kooks and Sweaters are screwing with the election the same way obots and crossover Rethugs did to hurt Hillary. I guess that’s also what I will be doing to cancel out any general election voter that votes for Barry while I will end up voting for that broken teacup.

    One vote per American…seems like so long ago…until the talking heads started damaging our voting democracy.

  • moononpluto

    Karl Rove just called Michigan for Romney

  • Shadowfax

    Gongotx
    I am hoping Romney does pull both out. It really disgusted me to hear how RICKYSWEATERBOY was making these robo calls to the Dems. He is such a sanctimonious sleaze ball.

    ———-
    I wonder if effing with the voters qualifies as a trip to the confessional…it does in my book.

  • gonzotx

    Mitt now 4% up 20,000 votes. Wonder how many Dem votes Sweaters got

  • Shadowfax

    Megan on Fox just asked Paul if he was working with Mitt and trying to set up his son.

    Paul thinks this is bs, no, not working with Mitt and his son can take care of himself and both he and his son each have their OWN jobs to do.

  • gonzotx

    It’s, amazing, on Fox, despite winning all three primaries, they are dissing him, Romney. Pompous. Like Hillary, she was just not good enough, and no I am not comparing them, just the talking head bozo’s.

  • admin

    http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/292212/53-michigan-democrats-voted-santorum

    CBS News’ Exit Poll finds that 9 percent of respondents identified themselves as Democrats. Among that group, 3 percent voted for New Gingrich, 17 percent each for Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, and 53 percent for Rick Santorum.

  • gonzotx

    Ahead, almost 30,000 Mitts

  • gonzotx

    So Mitt could have won by 8-10%. Hmmm

  • jbstonesfan

    MSM interviewing Gov of Michigan and trying to marginalize,
    Romney win and praising Obama for auto bailout.

  • gonzotx

    A talking head, with Ron Pauls Manager, admits he has directed most of his arguments to Sweaters and Newt, but it is part payback really for marginalizing him in Congress, no deal with Mitt and issues..he’s only human after all.

    Newt kept him from heading committee’s, etc.

  • gonzotx

    40.000 Romney, 5% Pat Cadell had some decent things to say about him

  • Shadowfax

    CBS News’ Exit Poll finds that 9 percent of respondents identified themselves as Democrats. Among that group, 3 percent voted for New Gingrich, 17 percent each for Ron Paul and Mitt Romney, and 53 percent for Rick Santorum.

    ——–that’s a good tidbit to throw in the face of Obots I know…they don’t know about the Kooks involvement.

    Actually anyone that supports the middleclass has a chance of stealing from Barry.

    fot declairs Mitt the winner in MI.

  • Shadowfax

    Typo alert…sorry

  • gonzotx

    ok I will stop, can’t add, still 30,000+

  • Shadowfax

    Fox calls Mitt winner in both states.

  • Shadowfax

    Fox calls Mitt winner in both states.

  • jbstonesfan

    Yes, a democratic strategist praising Romney while his own party destroying him.

  • Shadowfax

    My first double post…without even trying. 😉

    Sweaters lost Catholics…. Now that is RICH!

  • jbstonesfan

    Snowe retiring hurts GOP chances IMO. Also, Kerry running in Nebraska probably wins. Hopefully, they can hold the house.

  • gonzotx

    Mitt Romney has received more negative air time from CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Rush, Ingrahm, and everyone but Anne Coulter, and still he continues to win. Mitt is a class act.

  • jbstonesfan

    Sanatorium just gave a very long and boring speech.

  • admin

    Romney is doing robocalls in Ohio talking about Santorum dirty tricks in Michigan. The gambit to win with the aid of DailyKooks might be what finishes him off.

  • jbstonesfan

    Anne Romney needs to drop that line of not applauding. It comes off like a school teacher scolding her class.

  • tim

    “Kerry running in Nebraska probably wins”

    Do you know anyone in NE? the state is beet red. I have some family members there, Kerry wasn’t going to run initially, the dem party there couldn’t find anyone to run against the repub, which is why they probably had to bribe Kerry to run.
    The gov is repub, both state houses are red, and anyone who thinks any dem will win in NE needs to go visit there. My family are dems, and they plan on voting for corn if that’s the republican nominee for senate.

  • tim

    “It comes off like a school teacher scolding her class.”

    I agree with that, especially when she tells the audience to behave. Comes off very arrogant and ungrateful.

  • gonzotx

    Wait a minute jb, he did talk about his nurse mama…like me…LOL

  • gonzotx

    Sweaters won the blue collar vote in MI

  • gonzotx

    I can’t get over how handsome Romney is for 65, is he really 65?

  • jbstonesfan

    Agreed Tim. As far as Nebraska, I thought Kerry was very popular?

  • tim

    jbstonesfan
    February 28th, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    Not really. From what my relatives spoke of them, he’s not seen that favorably, and they voted for him and Nelson at one point. As I said, I think he said no intially, OTurd must have bribed him or something. ObamaCare is deeply unpopular from what I’ve been told in NE. Even the family I have there, while dems, are very conservative dems, the whole “CornHusker” kickback backlash is still alive and well from what I understand.
    So, Kerry will not win, unless of course the repubs put up an absolute idiot candidate, heck even Santorum could will in NE, its much deeper red now then it was in 2008.

  • gonzotx

    Romney…my highest priority will be to worry about your job, not my own… good line

    Maybe it’s those fancy underware that keep him looking young…then again, if he becomes president, he will have pure white hair at the end like the rest of the guys do.

    He is around the same age as Hillary and Bill?

    Tomorrow’s spin tonight:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/02/28/open-thread-michigeddon/

    Update: Romney’s doing so well tonight, in fact, that he might end up with a bonus talking point tomorrow. In 2008, he won the state with 338,000 votes. Tonight, with a little more than 70 percent reporting, he’s north of 306,000. If he outdoes his total four years ago amid lower turnout, he’ll have some dynamite spin for the naysayers.

    Update: One of Romney’s advisors floats another bit of effective spin on Twitter by noting that he’s the only candidate to win primaries in the northeast (New Hampshire), southeast (Florida), southwest (Arizona), and now the midwest.

    Update: With just 82 percent reporting, he’s already at 345,000 votes, several thousand greater than his take in 2008. Expect to hear a lot about that from his team tomorrow.

    I was/am a BIG HRC supporter and fan and was very upset by the 2008 elections. I began to hate Obama when he started (with the help of the MSM) labeling Bill, or implying Bill was a racist. I could not believe how the black community, who had so loved the Big Dawg turned on him to elect this fraud. I was appalled and heartbroken that this election was stolen from Hillary.

    I am an Independent and must admit I vote for who I think will do the best job, whether that is a Republican or a Democrat. I will vote for anybody but Obama in the upcoming election. I hate the man and his family with a passion for the ruin they have done to this country and for what they did to the Clintons.

    Regarding my feelings for the four Republicans that are running against Obama, any one of them would be better than that a**hole who is currently there.

    Just thought I would come out and tell you that I’m here and I’ve been here since 2008 and I admire all of you. Well, I kind of take that back. There are one or two posters here, that when I see their names, I just scroll down without reading. They just cause too much drama.

    Keep up the good works folks!

    yheitman,

    I often wonder who else reads this blog, but doesn’t comment. I wish more people would comment. But then again, I might be taken to task for not always towing the line on the Clinton’s, who I mostly respect until they start saying nice things about Obama. Yes, they probably have their reasons, but I do NOT like it. My hope, and what my continued respect depends on, is that they cannot stand the pos. Will we ever know some day? I sure hope so as I don’t like this uncertainty that I am starting to feel about them. As for the Dimocratic party, they can kiss my white working class a$$.

    I read the comment upthread about the Tea Party (which isn’t really a party btw, but I wish it was). Blaming the “Tea Party” for anything shows ignorance as far as I am concerned. The people want responsible government without the pork which is what many people want, yet their opponents smear them as teahadists. Well, I’ve been to two of their rallies in the past, and my encounters with these people have been nothing but positive. Those who like and strive in the status quo will not think positively of them. Same goes for those who have let the lying media define the Tea Party will also shun them. That’s a shame because if you haven’t gone to any of their rallies, then you really don’t know as much about them as you think you do. The gigantic rally in DC should have been repeated by now to show Americans what decent law abiding citizens look like for REAL. The contrast between the Tea Party activists and OWS creeps is marked. If anything, the Tea Party needs more support, and more avenues to express itself. Part of the problem is that it is made of many disparate groups. Another concern is that there are probably provocateurs placed within the group by their opponents. Regardless, they will be a force to be reckoned with, and they are the one group in politics at this time that I actually trust.

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/romney-camp-will-haunt-santorum-with-robocall-stor

    Mitt Romney’s campaign will spend the next two weeks reminding Republicans around the country of Rick Santorum’s last-minute attempt to convince Democrats to vote for him her ein Michigan, a Romney aide said Tuesday night.

    “It’s a major issue. [Santorum is] trying to pass himself off as the true conservative in the race, but he’s supporting the liberal Democrat line against Governor Romney,” said Ryan Williams, a spokesman for the Romney campaign.

    He added of Santorum’s efforts to find Democratic help in the state’s open primary: “This isn’t going anywhere.”

    A campaign aide said Romney may even work Santorum’s courting of Democrats into Romney’s stump speech going forward.

    The Romney campaign has been aggressive about publicizing the story since it first broke on Monday night, sending multiple e-mails to press attacking Santorum’s tactics.

    “America doesn’t need more dirty tricks from career politicians,” wrote spokesperson Andrea Saul in one e-mail.

    Romney himself weighed in during a visit to state campaign headquarters this morning, accusing Santorum of trying to “kidnap” the primary.

    Fox News has been reporting the robocall story all day—and if Team Romney has anything to say about it, they’ll be reporting it tomorrow too.

    The dirty tricks are back.

    Obama’s Organizing for America Pose as Official Registrars in Virginia to Register Students

    Since current voters aren’t Obama’s biggest fans, new voters must be found. OfA has fanned out across the country to register them. None of this is unusual, in fact, it’s quite normal.

    What isn’t normal is members of OfA going into a school, pretending to be from the registrar’s office, registering students who will turn 18 before the election and handing out campaign literature in the process. But that’s just what allegedly happened in Virginia last week.

    Western Branch High School is looking to whether or not OfA volunteers claimed to be from the district’s registrar’s office and campaigned for the President to unsuspecting students.

    The school is looking into the matter, but Virginia Democratic Party spokesman Brian Coy, when contacted for comment, was quite his last name on the matter. According to the local paper, Coy “disputed that any Organizing for America staff member or volunteer passed herself off as an employee of the registrar’s office. He also said the group came at the invitation of a teacher at the school, but he did not know which one.”

    Teachers inviting groups in to register future voters isn’t out of the ordinary, but not being able to find out which teacher invited them is odd. And, given security around schools, it would be difficult for an unknown group of people to simply wander into a school, set up shop in the cafeteria and start gathering personal information, including Social Security numbers, unquestioned is. This lends credence to the allegation that someone in the group claimed they were there as representatives from the registrar’s office.

    Nearly any group can go to a school and register voters, as long as they’ve cleared it with school administrators and act in a non-partisan way. As for why they were handing out papers with “Obama for America” on them, Coy said, “It sounds like there was a mix-up with the forms. These were volunteers and that may have been a mistake on their part. There was certainly no nefarious… intent. It was a simple mistake by volunteers.”

    Note how he goes from assuming there was a “mix-up” to calling it “a simple mistake by volunteers.” That’s quite a leap to a declarative statement for someone who didn’t even know how they got into the school.

    But that mystery isn’t the end of OfA’s problems in Virginia.

    In a throwback to ACORN’s problems with mishandling of voter registration forms, OfA “is under investigation for allegedly breaking an election law.”

    Turns out 147 people were disenfranchised by OfA because they failed to turn in voter registration forms in time, and in accordance to Virginia law. How this happened is unknown, as is which party these 147 disenfranchised registered for.

    What is known is forms that, by law, had to be turned in by February 13th were not delivered until February 21st.

    The matter has been referred to Charlottesville’s Commonwealth Attorney for investigation.

    The crime is only a misdemeanor, but the impact on those 147 people who now won’t be able to vote is immeasurable.

    After years of leftists accusing Republicans of trying to disenfranchise voters, it turns out, as always seems to, it is they who do it. The motivation behind this disenfranchisement is unknown, but will hopefully come out. If these “delayed” forms end up being of Republicans, that would go from an “accident” to a deliberate act. And, needless to say, had a Republican group done any of these things alleged here the media would not stop reporting on it, with every MSNBC host calling for Congressional hearing on the matter. But it was Democrats, so…crickets in the MSM.

    It seems OfA has picked up right where their unofficial predecessor, ACORN, left off – in the sketchy gray-area of the law. This, of course, surprises…no one.

    Bill Clinton on Keystone XL pipeline: ‘Embrace’ it

    Bills gone rogue again 🙂

    Bill Clinton on Keystone XL pipeline: ‘Embrace’ it

    Bill Clinton says it’s time to build the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Speaking at an Energy Department conference in Maryland on Wednesday, the former president said he was surprised the project has gotten as gummed up as it has, laying the blame on pipeline builder TransCanada.
    Continue Reading

    “One of the most amazing things to me about this Keystone pipeline deal is that they ever filed that route in the first place since they could’ve gone around the Nebraska Sandhills and avoided most of the dangers, no matter how imagined, to the Ogallala [aquifer] with a different route, which I presume we’ll get now, because the extra cost of running is infinitesimal compared to the revenue that will be generated over a long period of time,” he said.

    “So, I think we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work,” Clinton added.

    TransCanada this week said it would begin building a section of the pipeline from Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast and reapply for a new permit for the remainder of the project.

    Meanwhile, Clinton said he worries that increased domestic oil and natural gas production could allow many in the U.S. to lose interest in investing in other, newer cleaner forms of energy.

    “There are some hazards to the innovation project, right now. We have massive new recovery technologies in oil and gas which could lead us down the primrose path of thinking [that] we don’t have to keep using less energy and developing clean energy and technologies,” he said.

    “A lot of people are saying, ‘Let’s just go for this and nothing else,'” he said, after discussing the oil production in places like the Bakken Shale in North Dakota.

    Clinton added: “The recent spike in gas prices reminds us of the fragility of relying on just the way we used to do things, not the increasingly apparent cost of fossil fuels on our health and our ecosystem.”

    In projections released last month, the Energy Information Administration forecast that net petroleum imports will shrink to 36 percent of total U.S. liquid fuel consumption by 2035. That’s down from 49 percent in 2010 and well below the peak of 60 percent reached in 2005. That news came two months after the EIA reported that 2011 was likely to see the U.S. become a net exporter of petroleum products — including gasoline and jet fuel — for the first time in 62 years.

    The Daily Kooks try to spin their stupidity and loss into tin:

    The goal was to help Rick Santorum win Michigan, and obviously, that didn’t happen. Santorum simply sucked too much.

    But that doesn’t mean Operation Hilarity didn’t have an impact on the race.

    According to the exit polls, 9 percent of the electorate was Democratic, and of that, 53 percent voted for Santorum (just 18 percent for Romney). That means that Democrats accounted for about 4.5 of Santorum’s 38 percent. Without those votes, it’s a double-digit Romney shellacking (the final tally was 41-38).

    Now, while it was better for Santorum to lose by three in Michigan than 12 points, this isn’t just a matter of moral victories.

    BREAKING: Ex-Sen. Bob Kerrey says he will seek Democratic nomination for Nebraska seat after all.

    He’s not gonna win it though………

  • moononpluto

    OMAHA, Neb. — Former Sen. Bob Kerrey is reversing course and says he’ll seek the Democratic nomination for the Nebraska seat he once held.

    Kerrey’s announcement Wednesday comes just weeks after he publicly rejected a run to replace retiring Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson. It’s also just two days before Nebraska’s candidate filing deadline.

    The 1992 presidential candidate and former Nebraska governor previously said not running was in his family’s best interest.

    Kerrey’s announcement gives new hope to national Democrats desperate to stop Republicans from netting four Senate seats this fall and regaining control of the chamber.

    But it’s also sure to create state party friction. Fellow Democrat Chuck Hassebrook stepped into the race after Kerrey bowed out and gave up a University of Nebraska regent seat he’s held for nearly 18 years.

    ……………………..

    Well he is obviously not a man of his word, firstly what changed that is “in his family’s interest” and he just crapped all over his fellow dems shoes.

    SHERIFF JOE TO RELEASE ‘INVESTIGATION’ OF OBAMA… DEVELOPING.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/media-finally-paying-attention-to-eligibility/

  • BASIL99

    Arpaio presser on BO eligibility attracting lots of attentions.

    Should be interesting.

    Without releasing any details, Arpaio has said the results “could be a shock.”

    PHOENIX, Ariz. – Poll after poll in recent months has revealed that Americans have a high level of concern over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, with one poll revealing fully half of the nation wants Congress to investigate the question.

    But mostly reporters for the traditional media – networks, major newspapers, major news corporations and conglomerates – have giggled when talk turns to the serious question of just what – exactly – does the U.S. Constitution require of presidents.

    But that’s changing, as media organizations from all political persuasions seek admittance to a news conference to be held by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz.

    The event is tomorrow at 1 p.m. Mountain Standard Time in Phoenix, 3 p.m. Eastern, and will be live-streamed by WND.

    The topic of discussion will be an investigation by Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse into concerns about Obama’s eligibility, the first time an official law enforcement report has addressed many of the allegations about the presumptive 2012 Democratic nominee for president.

    Those issues include his eligibility under the U.S. Constitution’s requirements, questions about his use of a Connecticut Social Security number, the image of his purported birth certificate from Hawaii and others.

    In addition to the live-streaming, WND will make available to the public, the same day by email, the official report distributed to media by Arpaio’s investigators. Those interested in receiving the report can sign up for the free service.

    Top national media organizations have indicated their plans to attend and bookings for radio and television reports are in the works. Expected are reporters from AP, Reuters, Univision, the Washington Times and NBC, CBS and ABC affiliates, as well statewide radio networks, among many others.

    Without releasing any details, Arpaio has said the results “could be a shock.”

    He constituted a special five-member law enforcement posse last year to investigate allegations brought by members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party that the Obama birth certificate released to the public by the White House on April 27 might be a forgery.

    The posse is made up of three former law enforcement officers and two retired attorneys with law enforcement experience. Members have been examining evidence since September concerning Obama’s eligibility to be president under Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which requires a president to be a natural-born citizen.

    Among other issues, there also have been allegations of Obama’s use of a Social Security number that corresponds to a Connecticut address, even though the president apparently had no links there.

    SIGN UP NOW TO GET FREE COPY OF ARPAIO REPORT AS SOON AS IT IS DISTRIBUTED TO PRESS MARCH 1.
    The WND TV live-streaming coverage of the news conference Thursday is possible through the support of the Western Center for Journalism.

    The Sheriff better not be grandstanding. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Without releasing any details, Arpaio has said the results “could be a shock.”

    “When I took this mission on, I took it on to possibly be able to clear the president,” Arpaio said during a speech in Maricopa County. “I was doing him a favor. We’ll see what happens.”
    Arpaio has kept the results of the investigation close to the vest, but suggested in a speech Tuesday that new information would be revealed.

    “I don’t have press conferences just to get my name on television. When I have a press conference, I talk about something,” Arpaio said. “I had about 250 tea party people, to sign a petition . . . came to me and asked their sheriff to investigate Obama and the birth certificate. So what should I do? Throw it in the waste basket and forget it like everybody else has done?”

    Sarah Palin Voices Skepticism About Mitt Romney

    02/29/2012

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) spoke to the New York Times Tuesday before Mitt Romney won the Michigan and Arizona primaries, voicing skepticism about the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign.

    She said that she thought he was having a tough time gathering “support” and “energy.” “Whether Romney wins or loses in Michigan tonight, just the fact that he’s had such a fight in his home state is evidence of that blessing not yet being given to him across the board,” she said, but clarified that she would support him if he becomes the nominee.

    Palin also told the Times that Santorum “has done a good job in pointing out that Achilles’ heel in Romneycare.”

    Palin said earlier this month on Fox News that she was skeptical of Romney’s conservatism. “I am not convinced [of Romney’s conservatism] and I don’t think that the majority of GOP and independent voters are convinced, and that is why you don’t see Romney get over that hump.” She continued, “He is still in the thirty-percentile mark when it comes to approval and primary wins and caucus wins. He still hasn’t risen above that yet because we are not convinced. … He has spent millions and millions and millions of dollars and hasn’t risen yet.”

    Romney responded to Palin in a subsequent Fox interview. “I’m not quite sure what she’d be referring to,” he said. “I’m pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, I believe in the Second Amendment. As governor, I balanced the budget every year I was in office, put in place a $2 billion rainy day fund, cut taxes 19 times.”

    In addition to her concerns about Romney, Palin previously has told voters to vote for Newt Gingrich in an effort to keep the GOP primary race going.

    I installed the Do Not Track software as well- but in hindsight, question my decision-

    I read their License agreement. If you scroll to the very last line in the agreement, it says, according to Massachusetts Law- Now, this is food for thought- If in the future, they change or amend their License in accordance with MA Law inserting language favoring them as a data collection agency.. that is something to consider.

    When I noticed The Deluxe Version (a pay site) of the software in the “DO NOT TRACK” tool bar…was available..
    when you think about it.. they have gathered/blocked data from everyone’s computer who installed the software into neat little packages that could possibly be sold to marketing companies at a later date- similar to the legislation that was passed years ago with language prohibiting telemarketers from calling you if you signed up on a “Do Not Call” list. A year or two later, people that were on the ‘Do Not Call List’… were receiving unbridled telemarketer calls- just saying…

    The far right hates Romney, the media hates Romney, and the Liberals hate Romney.. He must be doing something right to get such a backlash from all of the establishments on all sides.

    Hi Mrs. Smith. No that wasn’t me but my husband and I did provide monetary assistance to send a Hillary supporter to god know where. I swear I am getting early Alzheimers. It was the place where they had the meeting about the Hillary delegates and she got only half from some states.. A lot of her supporters were coming in and had to stay in a hotel for 2 days and some couldn’t afford it so we sponsored someone. I can’t for the life of me remember where that was and it was only three years ago. Anyone remember where that was? My husband and I did it through I think PumaPAC

    The Political Couple were on Anderson Cooper tonight. Mary closed her discussion with parapharasing, of course, nothing that is happen in the Primary is affecting the General.
    ———————————————-
    Actually, it is helping Romney. He can run to the left of Santorum and attract women independent voters. That is what I am hearing. Of course that is the kind of think little Anderson would censor because it conflicts with the narrative he is supposed to shill. My god it gets old.

    What about mainstream media, i.e. NBC, CNN, ABC, NYT, AP, WashPo? Mr. Obama has lured them into a Devil’s Bargain whereby he gives them access and they serve as his cheerleader and attack machine. This bargain was struck during the 2008 Democrat Primary (see link above) and it has continued ever since. But there was more at stake here than they realized initially. For over time, this bargain has destroyed their credibility in the eyes of the American People. We deeply resent their refusal to vet Mr. Obama, their mawkish cheerleading for him, their entrapment of his opponents, their rigged debates, their biased pundits, their racism, their sexism, their rigged polling, and their relationship with Soros influenced Media Matters which specializes in character assassination. As a result, their audience is down 63%. This is exactly what their Devil’s Bargain with Mr. Obama has brought them.

    And on that fine point, we have this smoking gun from a former Obama insider: http://newsflavor.com/opinions/white-house-insider-the-media-elected-obama-not-the-american-people/

    I don’t know if it’s been talked about but Olympia Snowe deciding not to run for reelection is shocking. Something is up! She’s either sick or they have something on her.

  • NewMexicoFan

    The Insider interviews I think confirms what we always knew that was going on with the media when we were blogging during that time period. However, how extensive it was tends to not only surprise me, but sickens me.

    I did not realize how extensively the relationship. The Press really has lost its understanding of what their job it. They are to TRUTHFULLY REPORT THE NEWS BOTH PRO AND CON, and leave it up to the people to decide. That is what a Democracy deserves, and what the Press in a Democracy shold be committed to. They lost their way,just like the super delegates lost their way, in thinking they knew better than the voters. I will take a President like Jimmey Carter any day, even though I did not think that highly of him, but I respect the selection of the people, over what this Democracy was subjected to in 2008. We lost our Democracy that year, and the Media is the primary cause. If all of those papers fold, and the popularity of those so called news magazines have suffered and fold, it cannot happen too soon.

    There is a new media in town, and it is called the internet. We must keep that media alive.

  • gonzotx

    Toesucker said that app 100,000 Dems voted in MI, and still Romney won. He would have won by at least 10% if they had not. Mainly it was union people, and from the interviews, they were proud of it. I think this will backfire on the Dems in the long run..

    Sad state of affairs politics have become. In reality I guess they always have been, but 2008 took the prize, it took the prize, Hillary, from the world when we needed her most.

  • gonzotx

    Do you have any evidence of this–other than the fact that she is in love with Obama? I do not think that HRC will step down before January 20, and thereafter the issue will be moot. I think Morris has got the situation properly analyzed. Romney will be in this state Friday, and I will go see him. It will be a good sized group, and I doubt I will have the opportunity to speak to him personally, since I will not be making a campaign contribution. I do want to speak to his campaign staff. They may think they know what they are up against, but I have my doubts. If there is anything to report, I will post here.

    She could have retired earlier to give the GOP time to choose someone else. She could have retired after she won so the Governor could appoint a replacement. She would’ve easily won her race.

    The message? He said Obama would lose because the undecideds would vote for the challenger.

    Has DM factored in the DNC [Obama] owns the voting machines? Barney Frank shouldn’t have been re-elected at the midterms, his poll numbers were so low. It was a shock when he was re-elected. It’s possible, Barney might have had the advantage of voting machine manipulation because by all accounts, he shouldn’t have been re-elected. Barney himself said he was taken by surprise, he won-

    Could be the reason why Obama dropped dems who’s polling numbers were doing poorly during the midterms, withholding support of campaign finance money from them because it would have been throwing good money after bad and he couldn’t save them all. As it would have warranted a multitude of recounts possibly exposing extraneous help from the voting machines; which he needs for himself to win in November.

    Did lawsuit factor in Olympia Snowe’s departure?
    By Bill Allison and Lindsay Young Feb 29 2012 6:35 p.m. 11 comments

    Last August, while Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, was in the midst of an intensive round of fundraising for her 2012 reelection bid, a four-year-old civil lawsuit alleging fraud by an education company in which she and her husband are heavily invested became public.

    Nationally, most of the coverage of Snowe’s decision to drop her reelection bid has focused on the centrist Republican’s frustration with the polarized politics on Capitol Hill. But in Maine, a few newspapers have speculated that her husband’s legal entanglements had a role in Snowe’s sudden and surprising decision, which left her with more than $3 million in her campaign coffers and her party without a Senate candidate less than three weeks before the filing deadline for Maine’s June 12 primary.

    According to the senator’s most recent financial disclosure form, she and her husband, former Maine Gov. John McKernan Jr., have investments worth between $2 million and $10 million in Education Management Corp., a Pittsburgh-based company that operates for-profit higher education institutions. McKernan is chairman of the board of directors of the company, now embroiled in a lawsuit in which the federal goverment, 11 states and the District of Columbia are seeking to recover a portion of the $11 billion in federal student aid that the education firm has received since July 2003.

    Originally filed in April 2007 by a pair of whistleblowers, the lawsuit alleges that the company violated a federal law that prohibits schools from paying admissions officers based on the number of students they recruit and enroll. Those numbers can affect a school’s revenues because more students mean a school is potentially eligible for more federal aid dollars. The whistleblowers alleged, and provided documents indicating, that they were paid bounties for the number of students they enrolled.

    The Justice Department’s decision to intervene on Aug. 8 made the lawsuit, which had been under seal, public. In its complaint, Justice alleged that Education Management Corp. submitted “knowingly false, misrepresented, and/or improper certifications” to the Education Department, stating that it did not offer enrollment incentives to its admissions officers. Without those certifications, students enrolling at the the company’s schools, which include Argosy University, Brown Mackie College and South University, would not be eligible for federal financial aid. The complaint names Snowe’s husband, noting that in December 2006, while he was the company’s chief executive officer, McKernan personally signed certifications that Education Management Corp.’s schools complied with the ban on offering compensation to admissions officers based on the number of students they recruit.

    Cell phones dangerous to your health – especially in Afghanistan where owning one can lead to beheading

    ABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban took the four men to the main bazaar in a southern Afghanistan district at evening prayer on Sunday, regional government officials said, denounced them as government spies because they were carrying satellite phones, then beheaded them in front of local residents who had been summoned to watch.

    Three days later, on Wednesday morning, the director of a relatively progressive radio station in eastern Afghanistan was found stabbed to death in his car. His back, stomach and chest had been slashed, and his throat slit, according to the man’s brother, who said his head had been nearly severed from his body.

    He was in possession of some new BO tapes – spoke about them at CPAC – I remember thinking he was going to have to be very careful. I wonder if he shared those clips with anyone else!

    This STINKS! An inside hit job, just like Kan Kuwata who died of mysterious causes – just like the 3 TUC choristers who turned up dead.

    Man, we are screwed.

  • BASIL99

    Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

    We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

    Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

    Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

    I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

    Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

    Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

    Hannity is saying on FOX right now that Andrew Breitbart did have some heart issues some time back and that he went at one speed…full throttle.

    I am CC the following to Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton for serious consideration. Please forward.

    Dear Senator Snowe,

    Thank you for your honesty about the climate in Washington. I can truly understand how you would feel that you can do more outside of the Senate or for that matter the House of Representatives then in side either of those bodies.

    Our media, social dialogue and now congress are all about radical right and left with each being more unworkable and outrageous for their 15 min media bite. They have gotten themselves elected by a minor base that won’t allow for reasonable government work to occur.

    I feel such a loss that another moderate is walking away from Washington. Which is why I am asking you to do something for the American people? Would you please declare you candidacy for the Presidency and ask Hillary Clinton to be the Vice Presidential running mate? Not through your respective parties but through Americans Elect.org online selection process. If you do not want to be the Presidential part of the ticket then switch it or at least give the message that you’re open to the idea because a working government with workable people is the important goal here. That is the message that needs to catch on with the public. A message that says we do not have to be bullied by these radicals anymore because we now have available a process that can by passes parties who are taken over by these minority special interest with narrow selfish agendas.

    If you would declare right away and campaign in earnest the amount of press coverage you would get could change so much for the better in this country. Even if you did not team up with Hillary to start or even ever but just say something like I would love to have Hillary as a running mate, you know someone with that kind of work ethic that has a long history of a real working commitment to public service. A moderate Democrat with a different perspective then my own but still understands it is about building consensus and getting things done for the good of Americans and America.

    I honestly believe that the two of you can bring hope and inspire the silent majority of Americans and America so much that it will bring on sweeping change for not only Washington but in our media as well. You two together using Americanselect.org really could give courage to all those Americans who now feel shut out. I also feel that the two of you as a team would actually really and truly win. You both have a huge national support base of moderates and together it is way bigger than any current candidates running narrow radical base.

    If only you as this team would catch the vision of what the two of you could change not only within our election process but the facts of the matter are that you would start a whole new non party-party of moderates working together in Washington. This should cause even the Democratic and Republican Parties and their respective media supporters to step back from the unworkable radical elements within their own parties. Please consider this matter seriously, thank you.

    Sincerely & Respectfully,

    Roger Ryan

    Here’s the website about his movie which is/was to be released in the spring:

    Hating Breitbart” tells the story of how one man with a website upended the traditional press and repeatedly found himself the target of a media feeding frenzy.

    The filmmakers have been following Andrew Breitbart since the birth of the Tea Party movement in 2009, and they’ve got behind-the-scenes access to many of the media controversies in which Breitbart was a key player–from the ACORN takedown to Congressman Anthony Weiner’s crotch-shot Twitter scandal.

    http://www.hatingbreitbart.com/

  • BASIL99

    Andrew Breitbart took the podium at CPAC Friday afternoon, introduced to the stage with Rage Against The Machine’s Guerrilla Radio, and revealed to the audience he had “videos” of Barack Obama from his college days. “I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart disclosed to raucous applause. “We are going to vet him from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

    “The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails in the 1980s, like Bill (Ayers) and Bernadine (Dohrn), who said one day we would have the presidency, and the rest of us slept as they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted and they oversaw hundreds of millions of dollars in the Annenberg Challenge and they had real money, from real capitalists. Then they became communists. We got to work on that. That is a parenthesis. Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.”

    Breitbart shared an anecdote about having dinner at their house, and surmised there was no way Obama didn’t have many a meal at their kitchen tabl

    By Mark Levin ( a facebook Note) about Breitbart:
    Like most, I am totally stunned and deeply saddened by Andrew’s passing. He was a wonderful person and patriot. He loved his family and country. I will miss him. Many of us will. Andrew had enormous energy and courage. He was a pioneer. He was only 43 years old. I wish I had known him longer. The last time I was with Andrew was in November, when we both spoke in Washington at an Americans for Prosperity event, where Occupy DC was outside the convention center making all kinds of accusations and bullying people. Andrew loved the battle and he knew the stakes. May he rest in peace. May his family find peace. May God bless him.

    Apparently Andrew Breitbart had heart problems, according to Hannity.

  • BASIL99

    Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.

    Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

    “I don’t know what to say. It’s devastating,” Bean told The Associated Press.

    Basil, moononpluto,

    Curious timing.. if it is fate/natural causes, Obama is one lucky guy. It would be interesting to see if Arpaio goes ahead with his press conference today.

    {Admin, read your excellent posts all the time.}

  • BASIL99

    This does NOT pass the smell test. Walking after midnight? Who does that with a wife and 4 kids at home? Reminds me of that guy – ex-CIA, I think- who was found wandering aimlessly through Washington DC and although some noticed his disheveled appearance no one reported it and he wound up dead –

    Remember Breitbart’s role in Weinergate? in Pigford? And now the BO tapes?.

  • BASIL99

    Hello pm317 and welcome back.

    I was wondering, too, if Arpaio goes on with his presser at 3 p.m. Is this a warning to anyone with any dirt on the POS to shut the f**K up?

    I would say so.

    And, in my preceding post, who the f**k is the “someone” who saw him fall and reported it to paramedics? How long before the PM arrived? Again, what was he doing walking the streets after midnight on a week night? Was this normal behavior for him? And most importantly of all, where are the tapes?

  • nomobama

    Wow. I am very upset about Andrew’s passing. We, the opposition, needed him. He was fearless in his criticism of the fraud. There weren’t many like him. Damn it!

  • NewMexicoFan

    I find it hard to believe that he has not safeguarded those tapes, and has a plan in place to release them should he die. However, in the environment we find ourselves, anything is possible.

    My condolences to his widow and his children. You have lost this person far too young.

  • TEA PARTY WARRIOR ANDREW BREITBART IS DEAD!!!! It seems that Breitbart might have succumbed to a heart problem he may have been ignoring to do his citizen-based activism.

    I wonder did he get one of those accidental bumps last night out walking, you know the kind where umbrella tips hit legs or got palmed by untraceable coronary toxin.

  • nomobama

    I am on the phone with a friend discussing Breitbart, and I had said the same thing about poison umbrella tips, and how eastern European communists used that method to do away with their opponents in the west. I do not have a good feeling about what is going on anymore. My biggest hope is that 20 new “Breitbarts” emerge quickly.

    I went on over to the CNN blogs and the hate is beyond anything you’ll see at msnbc. I’ll say one thing, unless there is a sea change in spirit, civil war is coming. 0bama has ripped the country in two. There is no way in hell to stand for these angry, despicable and godless creatures. The left is far more dangerous to freedom than any taliban.

  • Leanora

    I don’t know if it was a poison umbrella, poison in his food or a knock on the head. All I know is that this was not a natural death.

    Three weeks ago he talks about the story he is working on and the tapes he has. Now he is dead!

    No coincidence!

    Interesting post from HA.

    I have not had time to go through the 10+ pages of comments, so if this is repetitious, please bear with me. I am a retired peace officer [SGT] with 28 years with my last department, and a total of 36 years wearing a badge. When you are an investigator, you look for anomalies, things that do not match.

    1.) Andrew Breitbart died of what has apparently been ruled natural causes at age 43. NO autopsy has been performed, nor has there been time for any forensic examination. [We are still waiting for the formal final findings in the Whitney Houston case.]
    2.) Noting for the record that the normal life span of a male of his age is over 70.
    3.) Coroners/Medical Examiners by practice at least and by statute in many states are required to conduct a full post-mortem and inquest for any suspicious death or death where there is no obvious cause. In my state, unless you die in a hospital from a previously diagnosed cause, a post mortem is specfically required by statute. [recent change in our law, that is destroying the budgets of the coroners]
    4.) The Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s office is notorious for issuing findings that contradict the evidence to benefit the powerful.
    5.) Andrew Breitbart received scores of threats on a daily basis from the supporters of the Left, was personally responsible for the temporary defunding of the Left’s political vote fraud machine [ACORN], and specifically had announced that he was in possession of pictures and data about Obama’s hitherto secret and deliberately concealed days in college that he was going to release during the presidential campaign.
    6.) This meets the definition of suspicious circumstances, and since there is not a neon light that starts flashing on your forehead saying “natural causes” when that is the cause of death; there should be a post-mortem before any ruling or announcement. Even if it was a heart attack, stroke, or aneurysm; it requires a pathological examination to determine that.
    7.) So from the beginning, we have that huge anomaly. Something ain’t right.
    8.) Being professionally a suspicious soul, I am reminded of the case of a Bulgarian gentleman named Georgi Ivanov Markov; not of the specific means, but the general process. YMMV.

    O/T Published: 12:14 AM 02/29/2012 … A visibly frustrated Attorney General Eric Holder slammed the table when responding to a question about Operation Fast and Furious during a Tuesday budget hearing before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies.“That was a fundamentally flawed program, fundamentally flawed,” Holder said of Fast and Furious. “And, I think that I can agree with some of my harshest critics that there are legitimate issues that need to be explored with regard in which the way Fast and Furious was carried out.”“But, I think one thing that also has to be understood is that once this was brought to my attention” — Holder said before slamming his hand on the committee room table he was sitting at — “I stopped it. I stopped it.”
    During an interview with Fox News host Megyn Kelly shortly after Holder’s comments, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa — the lead congressional investigator into the Fast and Furious scandal with Sen. Chuck Grassley — said he and others in Congress don’t think Holder is telling the full truth….

    Yes, in the movie The International- you see a covert operation of assassination with a trench coated man falling to the pavement for no apparent reason and no human contact. During the course of the movie you see how it was done a slight brush up with the target almost invisible to the naked eye.

    They don’t dwell on it in the trailer- but the impact is knowing powerful forces are afoot.

    President Obama said his formal apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans by U.S. troops last week has “calmed things down” after the incident sparked an outbreak of violence across the country.

    “We’re not out of the woods yet,” Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Bob Woodruff at the White House. “But my criteria in any decision I make, getting recommendations from folks who are actually on the ground, is what is going to best protect our folks and make sure that they can accomplish their mission.”

    Found this on bitterpoliticz today…

    Mary B on March 1, 2012 at 10:14 am said:
    What if Catholic bishops aren’t bluffing?

    Earlier this week, Francis Cardinal George of the archdiocese of Chicago sent a message to parishioners in Barack Obama’s home town that imposition of the HHS mandate to fund and facilitate contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization would force the Catholic Church to close its hospitals, clinics, schools, and all other organizations that would otherwise have to comply. “Two Lents from now,” Cardinal George warned, “unless something changes, the page [listing Catholic organizations] will be blank.” At the time, some commenters wrote that this has been Obama’s plan all along — to force religious charities out of business to make people more dependent on government. Others, including myself, figure that Obama just thinks the bishops are bluffing, and wants to engage in a high-stakes bout of brinksmanship to force them to kneel to secular authority over doctrine.

    But how high are those stakes? In my column for The Fiscal Times today, I did a little research just on Catholic hospitals and their significance in American health care. As it turns out, this bet involved nearly $100 billion in annual costs and about one-seventh of all hospital beds in the US — and that’s not all:

    The Catholic Church has perhaps the most extensive private health-care delivery system in the nation. It operates 12.6 percent of hospitals in the U.S., according to the Catholic Health Association of the U.S., accounting for 15.6 percent of all admissions and 14.5 percent of all hospital expenses, a total for Catholic hospitals in 2010 of $98.6 billion. Whom do these hospitals serve? Catholic hospitals handle more than their share of Medicare (16.6 percent) and Medicaid (13.65) discharges, meaning that more than one in six seniors and disabled patients get attention from these hospitals, and more than one in every eight low-income patients as well. Almost a third (32 percent) of these hospitals are located in rural areas, where patients usually have few other options for care.

    Compared to their competition, Catholic hospitals take a leading role in providing less-profitable services to patients. They lead the sector in breast cancer screenings, nutrition programs, trauma, geriatric services, and social work. In most of these areas, other non-profits come close, but hospitals run by state and local governments fall significantly off the pace. Where patients have trouble paying for care, Catholic hospitals cover more of the costs. For instance, Catholic Health Services in Florida provides free care to families below 200 percent of federal poverty line, accepting Medicaid reimbursements as payment in full, and caps costs at 20 percent of household income for families that fall between 200 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty line.

    Imagine the impact if these hospitals shut down, discounting the other 400-plus health centers and 1,500 specialized homes that the Catholic Church operates as part of its mission that would also disappear. Thanks to the economic models of these hospitals, no one will rush to buy them. One in six patients in the current system would have to vie for service in the remaining system, which would have to absorb almost $100 billion in costs each year to treat them. Over 120,000 beds would disappear from an already-stressed system.

    The poor and working class families that get assistance from Catholic benefactors would end up having to pay more for their care than they do under the current system. Rural patients would have to travel farther for medical care, and services like social work and breast-cancer screenings would fall to the less-efficient government-run institutions. That would not only impact the poor and working class patients, but would create much longer wait times for everyone else in the system. Finally, over a half-million people employed by Catholic hospitals now would lose their jobs almost overnight, which would have a big impact on the economy as well as on health care.

    Of course, it’s not just hospitals. The Catholic Church runs over 7500 primary and secondary education schools in the US (where over a third of students are non-Catholics), educating more than 2.5 million students. Thanks to a near-blanket moratorium on vouchers, taxpayer money doesn’t get used in teaching these students in a system that has a 99% graduation rate and a 97% success rate at placing students in college. Based on an average student cost of $8000 in public schools, Catholic schools save taxpayers about $20 billion dollars a year.

    Perhaps with schools, though, the notion that Obama wants to crowd out private enterprise in favor of the public sector makes more sense. How about charities? Catholic Charities would also have to close its doors if the bishops refuse to comply with the HHS mandate. In 2003, the latest data available, they provided emergency food services to 6.5 million people, temporary shelter to over 200,000 people, and a range of other assistance to another 1.5 million people, including assistance in clothing, finances, utilities, and even medication. Those efforts would disappear overnight, along with schools and hospitals.

    Surely, some will think, the bishops are just bluffing, and won’t purposefully create such a social disaster. Perhaps, but consider the teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order and a deeply influential figure in Catholic thinking:

    Some may doubt that the bishops would create this kind of havoc and disruption, and perhaps President Obama believes Cardinal George and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to be bluffing. However, Obama may want to read St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, and his Principle and Foundation of faith, which informs Catholics on the priority of salvation. The first task of mankind, according to St. Ignatius, is to serve God and “save his soul,” and “other things on the face of the earth” should be used only as long as they serve that purpose. When they become a hindrance to salvation, St. Ignatius warns to “rid himself of them.”

    If the HHS mandate forces the Catholic Church to fund and facilitate access to products and services they believe imperil souls, they will apply Ignatius’ principle and stick with salvation — which is the entire raison d’être of any religious organization. The implications for public-sector spending and services is massive, and Obama may be pushing all in with only a pair of jacks. Don’t count on the bishops to blink first.

    The Los Angeles County coroner’s office will review the death of conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, who collapsed and died Thursday while taking a nighttime walk near his Westwood home.

    Given his young age — he was 43 — and the unexpected manner in which he died, authorities will conduct an autopsy to help determine a specific cause of death.

    Breitbart’s father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, said in an interview with The Times that Breitbart was found collapsed near his home about 12:30 a.m. Paramedics took him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, but doctors were unable to revive him.

    “We’re devastated. I loved him like a son,” Bean said. “It looks like a heart attack, but no one knows until” an autopsy is done.

    After 10 years as editor of the Drudge Report and helping to launch the Huffington Post, Breitbart launched in 2005 his news aggregation site Breitbart.com, which was designed to counter what he described as the “bully media cabal” that he said ignored stories at odds with prevailing liberal orthodoxy.

    His goal, he often said, was to “destroy the institutional left.”

    His big splash came in 2009, when he posted an undercover video in which a pair of conservative activists posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend asked employees of the community group ACORN for help with a brothel that would house underage Salvadorans.

    ACORN was embarrassed when some of its workers seemed too helpful; Congress responded by defunding the organization.

    Breitbart’s conservative news websites broke the story about the sexually charged tweets by Rep. Anthony Weiner, a Democrat from New York, in a scandal that led to his resignation.
    Breitbart lived in Westwood with his wife, Susie, and their four young children, Samson, 12; Mia, 10; Charlie, 6; and William, 4.. He was adopted by moderately conservative Jewish parents and attended two of L.A.’s most exclusive private schools —Carlthorp and Brentwood.

    This does NOT sound like an area where a youngish guy would be out walking after midnight. Heck, even in NYC, people aren’t out ‘walking’ after 12 p.m.

    “These figures are a reflection of the fact that Brentwood is one of Los Angeles’ most expensive areas.”

    According to the Los Angeles Almanac, the 2000 census-year population was just under 42,000, with a population density of about 2,700 people per square mile. The population is about 80 percent white, 9 percent Asian-American, 6 percent Hispanic or Latino, and 1 percent black.

    In 2009, the Los Angeles Times’s “Mapping L.A.” project supplied these Brentwood statistics: population: 31,346; median household income: $112,927.[3]

    ; its median family income was $137,945; and its median per capita income was $75,965 in 1999.
    Almost 70 percent of area residents over 25 have college degrees, nearly half that total graduate and professional education. As of the 2000 census, approximately 16 percent of the population over 25 had either a doctorate or a professional degree, 15 percent a master’s degree, 37 percent a bachelor’s degree, 15 percent some college education but no degree, 8 percent a high school diploma alone, and only 5 percent lacked a high school degree. These figures are a reflection of the fact that Brentwood is one of Los Angeles’ most expensive areas.
    [edit] Housing
    As of 2000, there were just over 22,000 housing units in Brentwood. Most Brentwood residents reside in single-family homes, though some multi-family homes can also be found. Large, modern apartment complexes and condominiums are found along some of district’s thoroughfares, many home to young professionals and students attending University of California Los Angeles, California State University Los Angeles, and University of Southern California

    Sorry to be hogging the blog but I am FREAKED out about this! Breitbart was the media’s version of Newt Gingrich, fearless, powerful, determined, not afraid to speak the truth.

    He was one of the most important voices for the ABO cause and I can’t beleive he just dropped dead for no apparent reason.

    Some more info:

    MEDICAL ISSUES

    Amid suggestions that Breitbart had suffered a heart attack, Bean said he did not know Breitbart had any cardiac problems and the editor-in-chief of Breitbart.com declined to discuss any details about his health.

    Breitbart was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at 12:19 a.m. on Thursday, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Department of Coroner. An autopsy is tentatively scheduled for Friday. Winter declined to discuss any possible heart problems Breitbart might have suffered. “He had some medical issues, hadn’t seen a doctor in over a year and we don’t have his medical history yet,” Winter said.

    Quashing the theory, he didn’t have the tapes. Then there would have been no reason for him to die. He would not have been considered a viable threat.

    This is a beautiful tribute to AB from Greg Gutfeld.

    Greg Gutfeld

    I met Andrew Breitbart in 2005 when I was asked to write for the Huffingtpon Post. He was running the show. Everyone who knew him – left and right – said he was brilliant, eccentric, one of a kind. I instantly fell in love with the guy. To this day, i’ve never met anyone as fearless. He was my first guest on Redeye, a show I got largely because he told people about me. He became a cheerleader for my work, but more important, a dear close friend I could confide in, about anything. My wife called him the wizard, for he could conjure up anything at any time with limitless energy.

    He’s the only person I know who operated without a safety net. He always knew things would turn out the way they were supposed to – so he didn’t worry about money or, i guess, his health, too much.

    He was the spiritual leader of the modern conservative, libertarian cause. He was immersed in pop culture and wished to drag the right into the modern world – knowing this is how America speaks to the world. He was the heart of the matter. The fighter. Losing him is like a fiery planet going dark.

    My heart felt condolences go out to Susie and the kids.

    This links to a message from a Catholic Francis Cardinal George apparently sent AFTER Obama’s ‘accomodation’.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/01/what-if-catholic-bishops-arent-bluffing/
    “imposition of the HHS mandate to fund and facilitate contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization would force the Catholic Church to close its hospitals, clinics, schools, and all other organizations that would otherwise have to comply.”

    This falsely suggests that the organizations would PERFORM these procedures or STOCK “The Pill”. That is not true. The insurance companies would PAY for them as part of the standard package — as is already required in more than 20 states, where Catholic institutions have already been complying for years.

    Actually imo it’s time the Catholic hospitals etc did have to perform and stock and deliver the services — but that’s not what the current mandate says, unfortunately.

    “Thanks to the economic models of these hospitals, no one will rush to buy them.”

    Or the grants and money breaks they are NOW getting from the government (tax-free, tax-deductable status etc) would transfer to the new owners, instead of having to go through the Catholic filter.

    The article goes on to say that many poor people have no other options than the Catholic hospitals: all the more reason for these hospitals to provide ALLl needed services, even ‘sinful’ ones. Even if they have to change ownership to someone other than supposedly celebate old men.

    Stephanie Tubbs Jones was a member of the US House of Representatives from Ohio, if I recall correctly. She was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, and as a black female, no less. She was driving her car one day, and it crashed. Supposedly, she died while driving, not from the crash. It happened in August of 2008, during the heat of the Democratic primaries where she never waivered from supporting Hillary. Her death was suspicious, in my opinion. She was not “old”, and as far as I can recall, she did not have any major health issues.

    Stephanie Tubbs Jones had been at a co-workers home early in the am… a strategy session was in play for the dem nomination getting Hillary nominated in Denver.

    My Gawaltny, Chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Committee were reviewing the rules with Jones as to what they could do to prevent Obama from walking away with the nom without Hillary having a say-.. The plan was to stage a walk-out of Hillary delegates in protest at the nomination hall when the nomination process was begun.

    Gwaltney and Tubbs-Jones agreed to head up the effort. They never made it. Tubbs-Jones was alive and feeling fine that morning. After leaving the morning meeting, somewhere in the vicinity of 10 am that same morning while driving her car to the office she died behind the wheel crashing her car.

    My Gawaltny = Mr. Gawaltny

    Gwaltney was shot dead in his office in the early afternoon by an intransigent employee who was fired from his job in the early hours that morning. The shooter didn’t know Gwaltney and Gwaltey didn’t know him.

    The Arkansas PD located the suspect and a high speed chase ensued. After the suspect was stopped Gunshots were fired at the scene by the PD. The suspect shooter was pronounced dead at the scene. No questions, no motive and no witnesses.

    When have you heard of a high speed chase involving a suspect and local law enforcement resulting in a dead suspect shot by the PD even if he had a gun?

    From the Sheriff Joe Arpaio presser: I’ll provide link in next post as there are videos that are mentioned at the end of this article that you can watch if interested…
    ———–
    PHOENIX – An investigative “Cold Case Posse” launched six months ago by “America’s toughest sheriff” – Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County – has concluded there is probable cause that the document released by the White House last year as President Obama’s birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery.

    The investigative team has asked Arpaio, who is at a news conference in Phoenix live-streamed by WND TV that began at 3 p.m. Eastern time, to elevate the investigation to a criminal probe that will make available the resources of his Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

    The posse says it has identified at least one person of interest in the alleged forgery of Obama’s birth certificate.

    Arapaio, known for his strict enforcement of immigration laws, commissioned the investigative team after local citizens presented him with a petition expressing concern that Obama might not be eligible for Arizona’s presidential ballot.

    In addition to the live-streaming, WND is making available to the public a report distributed to media today by Arpaio’s investigators.

    The posse, comprised of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience, has interviewed dozens of witnesses and examined hundreds of documents. It also has taken numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the time.

    Mike Zullo, Arpaio’s lead investigator, said his team believes the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in a systematic effort to hide from public inspection any original 1961 birth records it may have in its possession.

    “Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” Zullo said.

    The investigators say the evidence contained in the computer-generated PDF file released by the White House as well as important deficiencies in the Hawaii process of certifying the long-form birth certificate establish probable cause that a forgery has been committed.

    The investigation was launched after 250 members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, presented a signed petition to Arpaio in August 2011 asking him to undertake the investigation.

    The Tea Party members petitioned under the premise that if a forged birth certificate was used to place Barack Obama on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot, their rights as Maricopa County voters could be compromised.

    Arpaio believes a congressional investigation might be warranted and has asked that any information relevant to the investigation held by other law enforcement agencies be forwarded to his office.

    The Cold Case Posse advised Arpaio that they believe forgers committed two crimes. First, they say it appears the White House fraudulently created a forgery that it characterized as an officially produced governmental birth record. Second, the White House fraudulently presented to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large a forgery represented as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

    “A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery,” Arpaio said.

    Among the evidence released at the press conference are five videos – which can be seen at the end of this article – to demonstrate why the Obama long-form birth certificate is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery.

    The videos consist of step-by-step computer demonstrations using a control document. They display the testing used by the investigators to examine various claims made by supporters of the April 27 document.

    The investigators contend the videos illustrate their conclusion that the features and anomalies observed on the Obama long-form birth certificate were inconsistent with features produced when a paper document is scanned, even if the scan is enhanced by Optical Character Recognition, OCR, and optimized.

    Additionally, the posse says, the videos demonstrate that the Hawaii Department of Health Registrar’s name stamp and the registrar’s date stamp were computer-generated images imported into an electronic document, as opposed to rubber stamp imprints inked by hand or machine onto a paper document.

    “That we were able to cast reasonable suspicions on the authenticity of the registrar stamps was especially disturbing, since these stamp imprints are designed to provide government authentication to the document itself,” Zullo said, emphasizing that if the registrar stamps are forgeries, the document itself is likely a forgery.

    The investigators also chronicled a series of allegedly inconsistent and misleading representations that various Hawaii government officials have made over the past five years regarding any original birth records held by the Hawaii Department of Health.

    “As I said at the beginning of the investigation, the president can put all this to rest quite easily,” Arpaio said. “All he has to do is demand the Hawaii Department of Health release to the American public and to a panel of certified court-authorized forensic examiners all original 1961 paper, microfilm and computer birth records the Hawaii Department of Health has in its possession.”

    Arpaio emphasized that the Hawaii Department of Health needs to provide, as part of the full disclosure, evidence regarding the chain of custody of all Obama birth records, including paper, microfilm and electronic records to eliminate the possibility that a forger or forgers may have tampered with the birth records.

    The sheriff said the president should also authorize Honolulu’s Kapi’olani Hospital, the birth hospital listed on the Obama long-form birth certificate, to release any  hospital patient records for Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, his mother, and for the newly born Barack Obama, to provide corroboration for the records held in the Hawaii Department of Health vault.

    “Absent the authentic Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other credible proof supporting the idea or belief that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he and the White House have consistently asserted,” Zullo said.

    “In fact, absent the authentication of Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other proof he was born anywhere within the United States.”

    In addition, investigators say they have developed credible evidence that President Obama’s Selective Service card was a forgery, based on an examination of the postal date stamp on the document. Also, records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth.

    Faaud and forgery committed in BO’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration.

    Both crimes are felonies.
    The investigation continues.
    The investigators know where the computer that generated the info is, where it was manufactured and where the forged docs were built.

    Arpaio may ask for congressional investigation.

    Reporters went nuts with questions.

    Several incidents reported VERY interesting. Affadavits from all over the world, many willing to come forward and speak on the record.

    One anecdote: A person was speaking with Bill Ayers in front of Ayers home in the 1980’s about BO being a foreign student who was applying for aid to go to school.

    More later.

    Presser is over.

    Arpaio stated unequivocally that both docs were frauds but said he didn’t know who was responsible for the docs and stressed he was not accusing BO of anything. He said a crime had been committed in Maricopa County and it is his duty to continue the investigation.

    Above is the link that has the videos mentioned in my previous post.

  • BASIL99

    “President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate released by the White House on April 27, 2011, is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery, not a scan of an original 1961 paper document as represented by the White House when the long-form birth certificate was made public,” Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said at a press conference today in Phoenix.

    This is the major preliminary finding of a six-month ongoing Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse law enforcement investigation into the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president.

    Having developed probable cause to believe the long-form birth certificate was most likely a computer-generated forgery, investigators began examining other evidence of President Obama’s life history.

    Investigators additionally have developed credible evidence suggesting:

    • President Obama’s Selective Service card was most likely a forgery, revealed by an examination of the postal date stamp on the document;

    • Records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by airplane passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961, examined at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth, including the dates Aug. 1, 1961 through Aug. 7, 1961.

    Beginning in October 2011, the Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse, consisting of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience, examined dozens of witnesses and hundreds of documents, as well as taking numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.

    In August 2011, 250 members of the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party, residents of Maricopa County, presented a signed petition asking Sheriff Arpaio to undertake the investigation.

    The Tea Party members petitioned under the premise that if a forged birth certificate was utilized to obtain a position for Barack Obama on the 2012 Arizona presidential ballot, their rights as Maricopa County voters could be compromised.

    The Cold Case investigators further determined that the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in what Sheriff’s investigators believe is a systematic effort to hide from public inspection whatever original 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may have in their possession.

    “Officers of the Hawaii Department of Health and various elected Hawaiian public officials may have intentionally obscured 1961 birth records and procedures, to avoid having to release to public inspection and to the examination of court-authorized forensic examiners any original Obama 1961 birth records the Hawaii Department of Health may or may not have,” said Mike Zullo, the lead investigator in Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse.

    The Cold Case investigators have not yet determined who, when, or precisely how the long-form computer-generated birth certificate released on April 27 may have been forged, but investigators say the evidence contained in the computer-generated PDF file released by the White House as well as important deficiencies in the Hawaii process of certifying the long-form birth certificate establish probable cause that a forgery has been committed.

    The Cold Case Posse investigators advised Sheriff Arpaio that the forgers most likely committed two crimes: first, in fraudulently creating a forgery that the White House characterized, knowingly or unknowingly, as an officially produced governmental birth record; and second, in fraudulently presenting to the residents of Maricopa County and to the American public at large a forgery the White House represented as “proof positive” of President Obama’s authentic 1961 Hawaii long-form birth certificate.

    “A continuing investigation is needed to identify the identity of the person or persons involved in creating the alleged birth certificate forgery, and to determine who, if anyone, in the White House or the state of Hawaii may have authorized the forgery,” Arpaio said.

    Among the evidence released at the press conference were five videos the Cold Case Posse produced to demonstrate why the Obama long-form birth certificate is suspected to be a computer-generated forgery.

    The videos consisted of step-by-step computer demonstrations using a control document.

    The videos were designed to display the testing used by the investigators to examine various claims made by supporters of the April 27 document.

    The videos illustrate point-by-point the investigators’ conclusion that the features and anomalies observed on the Obama long-form birth certificate were inconsistent with features produced when a paper document is scanned, even if the scan of the paper document had been enhanced by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and optimized.

    Additionally, the videos demonstrated that the Hawaii Department of Health Registrar’s name stamp and the Registrar’s date stamp were computer-generated images imported into an electronic document, as opposed to actual rubber stamp imprints inked by hand or machine onto a paper document.

    “That we were able to cast reasonable suspicions on the authenticity of the Registrar stamps was especially disturbing, since these stamp imprints are designed to provide government authentication to the document itself,” Zullo said, stressing that if the Registrar stamps are forgeries, the document itself is likely a forgery.

    The investigators also chronicled a series of inconsistent and misleading representations that various Hawaii government officials have made over the past five years regarding what, if any, original birth records are held by the Hawaii Department of Health.

    Arpaio went on to say the President should also authorize Kapiolani Hospital, the birth hospital listed on the Obama long-form birth certificate, to release any and all hospital patient records for Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, his mother, and for the newly born Barack Obama, in order to provide additional corroboration for the original 1961 birth records held in the Hawaii Department of Health vault.

    “Absent the authentic Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other credible proof supporting the idea or belief that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he and the White House have consistently asserted,” Zullo said.

    “In fact, absent the authentication of Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other proof he was born anywhere within the United States.”

    Arpaio concluded the press conference by suggesting a congressional investigation might be warranted and asked that any other law enforcement agency with information referencing this investigation be forwarded to his office.

    If you saw Andrew’s CPAC speech where he shared the news of having college tapes of Barack AND The First Linebacker, he seemed a tad erratic and blamed it on lack of sleep. I also saw a comment this morning where Breitbart was a scheduled speaker for an AFP rally in Michigan (I think), and when the time came for him to take the stage, they couldn’t find him. After they tracked him down, the coordinators said he seemed a little out of it, but they gave him some coffee and he went on and hit it out of the park.
    ………..

    Breitbart had just announced at CPAC that he had secret

    videos of President Obama that would destroy his reelection bid.

    We have the motive…

  • BASIL99

    OK, Mrs. S, I am not quite getting this. Are you saying BO WANTS all Catholic Istitutions to close so he can initiate the “Cloward-Piven strategy implemented by Saul Alinsky followed through by Ayers, Dorn and Van Horn by overwhelming municipal and state services to the point of total collapse?”

    You think that’s what he wants?

    Also, OT but still relevant, did you read my remark about Arpaio mentioning that there is a witness who has produced an affadavit who will testify that in the 1980’s during a conversation with Ayers and Dorn – on their front lawn – the subject of BO came up and he was referred to as a foreign student seeking tuition assistance? And this witness is willing to testify in person according to Arpaio.

    I am-

    The stats have already been outlined stating the huge impact this would play on the entire nation. Catholic Schools would close, services to the homeless and soup kitchens would no longer exist, shelters for battered women would close, their share of services upholding medicare and medicaid would no longer support the system just to name a few things I read today that the closing of Catholic support services would play on the country if it should happen. The Church has already said they would do it if Obama doesn’t back down… in the end, giving Obama just what he wants… economic and total chaos of our government system.

    Some more comments from Ulsterman

    With the announcement of Andrew’s passing overnight we could not help recalling our conversation just 3 weeks ago in Washington, DC. Andrew said on Feb 9, 2012 in Washington, DC “wait til they see what happens March first.”
    ***************************************************************************

    NEWSFLASH re those videos Breitbart mentioned at CPAC:
    Today on Hannity’s radio program, after playing that audio at CPAC, he had a guy who was working on it with him on and he said, YES, they have them and they are going to release them “soon”. Breitbart was holding them for a certain time in the media cycle and apparently, after reading the above blog about March 1 — it was to be about now.?

    He said it was a video of a meeting Obama had with Bernadine Dorn and Ayers in college days, plotting their evil plans for Obama when he would become President – to implement them — so they’ve been plotting his Presidency for a very long time, which I’ve written about. They made sure all their “bases” were covered for this with all the activist judges, appointing all their people in the powerful positions (then and now), waiting like some evil, starving predator for the right time….2008….Bingo!!!!

    May other patriotic, brave people take up this fight and continue where he left off and yes, Obama will be thoroughly “vetted” and exposed (along with the rest) for the evil, treasonous perpetrators they are, just as Breitbart had worked so hard for .

    If it’s any consolation.. the angels are with us. The info and proof about Obama’s birth certificate and Breitbarts tapes about to be released closer to the election are ultimately culminating all at the same time.

    I have always had Faith, the watchers, besides myself, would gather the evidence we need to run the scourge of America out of the WH.. and it seems the evidence has gotten big enough, the right type of credible evidence (enough), we are very close to getting the job done…and Obama knows it- he sees the writing on the wall if all this damning evidence should surface just before the election.

    Oh Sh!t!

    Cloward and Piven’s article is focused on forcing the Democratic Party, which in 1966 controlled the presidency and both houses of the United States Congress, to take federal action to help the poor. They stated that full enrollment of those eligible for welfare “would produce bureaucratic disruption in welfare agencies and fiscal disruption in local and state governments” that would “deepen existing divisions among elements in the big-city Democratic coalition: the remaining white middle class, the working-class ethnic groups and the growing minority poor. To avoid a further weakening of that historic coalition, a national Democratic administration would be constrained to advance a federal solution to poverty that would override local welfare failures, local class and racial conflicts and local revenue dilemmas.”

    They wrote:

    “The ultimate objective of this strategy—to wipe out poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income—will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income.”

    Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven “proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy.”

    he Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward (1926–2001) and Frances Fox Piven (b. 1932) that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”

    Update: The Hollywood Reporter talks to someone who found himself sitting next to Breitbart at a bar in Brentwood hours before his death.

    “He was friendly and engaging,” Sando recalls. “I said, ‘You can’t be very happy with the slate of Republican candidates’ and he said, ‘Why would you say that?’ I said, ‘Well, they’re talking about contraception,’ and he said, ‘The conversation is being framed by the liberal media.’ I said, ‘Well, the media isn’t writing Rick Santorum’s speeches for him.’ We had a back-and-forth for awhile until we said we weren’t going to agree on some things.”

    The friendly debate continued in the bar as Breitbart sipped red wine, says Sando. “We just hit it off, he was delightful. There were other people who sat down and joined the conversation.”…

    “There were no signs that anything was wrong,” says Sando. “It’s very sad.”

    Sando says they parted at around 11:30 p.m.; Breitbart was pronounced dead 49 minutes later.

    Marketing executive Arthur Sando tells THR about his lengthy debate with the conservative activist at The Brentwood; they said goodbye around 11:30 p.m., 50 minutes before Breitbart was pronounced dead.

    Andrew Breitbart spent his final hours much like he lived most of his life: passionately talking politics.

    Breibart, the 43-year-old conservative pundit and provocateur who died suddenly early Thursday while walking near his Los Angeles home, had stopped into The Brentwood, a nearby bar and restaurant. There, he struck up a conversation with Arthur Sando, a marketing executive who didn’t know Breitbart but likely was the last person to talk extensively with him before he died.

    In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sando says he arrived at the bar in the tony Brentwood section of L.A. around 10 p.m. and soon the empty seat next to his was filled by a man with a familiar face.

    “I tried to figure out how I knew him,” says Sando, a veteran publicity and marketing executive who has worked at CBS, King World Prods and Turner Broadcasting. “He was on his BlackBerry. And I said ‘Andrew?’ I told him I had seen his work.”

    Sando says the duo quickly struck up a conversation that would last a little less than two hours.

    “He was friendly and engaging,” Sando recalls. “I said, ‘You can’t be very happy with the slate of Republican candidates’ and he said, ‘Why would you say that?’ I said, ‘Well, they’re talking about contraception,’ and he said, ‘The conversation is being framed by the liberal media.’ I said, ‘Well, the media isn’t writing Rick Santorum’s speeches for him.’ We had a back-and-forth for awhile until we said we weren’t going to agree on some things.”

    The friendly debate continued in the bar as Breitbart sipped red wine, says Sando. “We just hit it off, he was delightful. There were other people who sat down and joined the convers

    Sando also mentioned that he hadn’t seen Breitbart as a guest on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher recently; Breitbart told Sando he enjoyed going on Maher’s show because it taught him how to deal with a hostile audience and how to react when getting booed.

    Breitbart had stopped in for a drink but wasn’t there to meet anyone in particular, Sando says. Nor were there any signs of health or other problems.

    “He wasn’t drinking excessively,” Sando recalls. “He was on his BlackBerry a lot.”
    After the two hours, Breitbart said he was leaving. “We exchanged contact information,” Sando says. “We were going to get together.”

    Sando says he was “shocked” to read Thursday morning that Breitbart, who had a history of heart problems, had collapsed while on a walk near his home in the same neighborhood as the bar.

    Breitbart was rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead at 12:19 a.m., according to Reuters, less than an hour after leaving The Brentwood.

    The exact cause of death has not been revealed but initial reports said it was natural causes.
    “There were no signs that anything was wrong,” says Sando. “It’s very sad.

  • BASIL99

    While you’re doing that, we want to let you know of a dinner Breitbart recently had with Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn at their Hyde Park residence Super Bowl Sunday. Conservative pundit Tucker Carlson, editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller, won a December online auction for a dinner party with the couple. Carlson donated $2,500 to the Illinois Humanities Council for the chance to dine with them.

    Carlson used the dinner party as an opportunity to solicit questions from his readers to ask Ayers and even posted the menu of the dinner.

    Carlson also brought along Breitbart. (For what you may think of the man, give him this much credit: he was willing to meet and argue with people who were his ideological opposites. He can’t get much further opposite than Ayers and Dohrn.)

    In the video below from Mediaite, Breitbart calls Ayers “a sociopath,” but raved about his hosting skills and cooking.

    “It’s intoxicating,” Breitbart said. “This is one of the ways they’re able to indoctrinate young impressionable people.”

    Yes, readers, being a good host and knowing how to prepare an amazing dinner is un-American. Let the conspiracy theories about how the dinner party may have slowly poisoned Breitbart commence.

    Democratic Senators Kill Off Religious Freedom, Preserve Obama’s Contraception Mandate “Compromise”
    —DrewM.

    The First Amendment? Never heard of it, must be an internet thing.

    The Senate voted 51-48 to kill the amendment, which was offered by Senate Republican Minority Leader Roy Blunt of Missouri as an add-on to the transportation funding bill. Blunt and fellow Republicans cast the amendment as a fight to protect First Amendment rights (which include the freedom of religion.) Prior to the vote, Blunt argued that the language should be deemed noncontroversial by his colleagues, stating on the Senate floor that every member of the Senate, barring some of the most recently elected members, “have voted for bills that have this language in them.”

    The future of Thursday’s amendment in the closely-divided Senate hung on decisions from a handful of Senate centrists. Retiring Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine voted with the majority of Democrats to table the amendment, while three centrist Democrats– Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Ben Nelson of Nebraska– crossed party lines to vote with Republicans in favor of the amendment.

    Mrs Smith: “Every Hispanic country may be divesified somewhat with assorted ethnicities, but no religion in the world can compare with the size and scope of Catholic Church’s membership. (except for the Jews).”
    =====

    You’re right about the Catholic Church, there are an estimated 2 billion Catholics worldwide. However, there are only an estimated 12 million Jews. Not comparable at all.

    As for the diversity of the demographics you mention, while I have always decried the attempted mind control by the Catholic bachelor intelligentsia and their Pope, I don’t really think a third of the world’s people can be pigeonholed very easily – perhaps more so than protestants, Jews, muslims, Buddhists or Republicans, but there are differences between the faithful and their leaders. This flap over contraception is one example of that. If the Church puts an end to its medical missions, I think it will face a lot of grief from the rank and file.
    **********************

    In another vein, Sando’s testimony does clarify a few things that might curb our new ‘conspiracy theories’:

    First of all, it clarifies why Breitbart was out walking late at night. He was apparently walking home after a late night at a bar with some newfound friends. Nothing particularly suspicious about that, I’ve often done that myself.

    Secondly, he was juiced up. Alcohol has contradictory effects on the body, as both a depressant and excitant. If Breitbart had a history of cardiac problems and was a naturally excitable person, having ‘one too many’ could have pushed him over the precipice.

    This still doesn’t excuse the lack of an autopsy, but it does put the suspicion of foul play in perspective. Mind you, I’m usually of a mind to suspect foul play in many places where the general public swallows the official version hook, line and sinker. But Breitbart is one case where, with Sando’s testimony, I’m not going to indulge in much theorizing.

    From AP:

    Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta defend administration on Israel
    Associated Press
    Posted March 1, 2012 at 8:05 a.m.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Pushing back hard, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta are rejecting Republican criticism of President Barack Obama’s policy toward Israel, arguing that the election-year attacks ignore the strong cooperative relationship and the record billions of dollars in U.S. aid for the Mideast ally.

    In separate appearances on Capitol Hill, Clinton and Panetta defended the administration against complaints from some House Republicans that a slight reduction in the budget request for a joint U.S.-Israeli missile defense program is a sign of inadequate support for a longtime friend. In fact, Obama’s budget for next year calls for $3.1 billion in military assistance for Israel, a slight increase over the current level and the most for any foreign country.

    “I can assure you that not only does the Obama administration strongly support the defense and security of Israel, but we have put more money behind that pledge than has ever been put before,” Clinton told the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday. “We’ve increased U.S. security assistance to Israel every year since” the 2009 budget.

    Clinton noted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the bilateral security cooperation between the two countries unprecedented.

    Republicans see a political opening in the uneasy relationship between Washington and Jerusalem over Israeli settlements in the West Bank and the state of Mideast peace talks, further complicated by the Obama administration’s pressure on Israel to hold off on a possible military strike against Iran’s disputed nuclear development program. The criticism comes ahead of Netanyahu’s visit to Washington next week to meet with Obama and congressional leaders.

    The Iranian threat to Israel has stoked the bitter rhetoric both in Washington and on the presidential campaign trail, where Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have accused Obama of throwing Israel under a bus and emboldening the Palestinians. The fierce talk reflects that Jewish voters, who comprise only 2 percent of the electorate nationwide, are a critical part of Obama’s base and could be the difference in close battleground states such as Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Nevada.

    Financial contributions from Jewish voters are critical for both parties.

    In a harbinger of the criticism if Israel does hit Iran, Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., asked why the administration “doesn’t give complete support to Israel and say, you know, if Iran continues with its program, we will do whatever is necessary to stop that program and give Israel the support that I think they need.”

    At a House Budget Committee hearing, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., pressed Panetta on why the administration budget requests for the missile defense program had declined. Obama has asked for $99.8 million for a program designed to help protect Israel from short-range ballistic missiles and rockets that might be fired from Gaza or from Lebanese Hezbollah territory or for longer-range missiles from Iran or Syria. The request for 2013 is slightly less than what the administration sought in 2012, $106.1 million.

    “What justification, given what we see out of the nation of Iran, can you give?” Price asked.

    “We have significantly increased the amount of funds that we provide to Israel,” Panetta said. “It’s now $650 million, which more than doubles what was the level in the prior administration of about $320 million.”

    Panetta later told lawmakers that U.S. support for Israel is “unshakeable.”

    In a recent letter to Obama, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., and House Armed Services Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., challenged the “record-low support for this vital defense cooperation program.” They made no mention of the $3.1 billion request for military assistance.

    In its 2012 budget, the administration spelled out future requests for the U.S.-Israeli missile defense program, a typical practice for defense budgets — $99.8 million in 2013, $95.7 million in 2014, $96.8 million in 2015, $103.9 million in 2016 and $106 million in 2017.

    The GOP criticism also comes ahead of a meeting Sunday of the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Obama, Netanyahu, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will address the group.

    Lawmakers, especially those facing re-election this year, have furiously pushed resolutions and legislation on Iran sanctions that are strongly backed by AIPAC.

    From Huff & Puff, Ryan Grim:

    Bill Clinton: Teneo Capital No Longer Paying Me
    Posted: 03/02/12 12:02 AM ET

    WASHINGTON — Former President Bill Clinton has ended his paid relationship with the global financial consulting and private equity firm Teneo Capital, he confirmed in a statement Thursday night.

    Clinton’s statement was in apparent response to a New York Post report that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had forced her husband to leave the firm to avoid the perception of conflicts of interest. The Post also reported that longtime Clinton aide Douglas Band was leaving the Clinton Global Initiative to focus on Teneo.

    Band, in fact, is not leaving the Clinton Global Initiative, said Clinton. As for his own situation, “I did not sever my financial relationship with Teneo. I changed it,” Clinton said. “Because of the invaluable help I continue to receive with my business relationships and speaking engagements, as well as with CGI and other philanthropic activities, like the Ireland investment conference, I felt that I should be paying them, not the other way around.”

    In November, The Huffington Post first reported Clinton’s professional relationship with Teneo, founded by Band and Declan Kelly. The Post report said Secretary Clinton believed “the former president has ‘damaged’ the ‘Clinton brand’ by entangling himself and his organizations in arrangements that could appear questionable.” As HuffPost reported in November, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair was also brought on by Teneo to serve on its paid advisory board.

    Kelly, born and raised in Ireland, is a former top State Department envoy who served under Secretary Clinton and was a major donor to her presidential campaign and longtime friend.

    The collapse of MF Global, a bankrupt hedge fund run by Jon Corzine, a top Democrat and former New Jersey governor, further damaged the Clinton brand. In November, HuffPost reported that Teneo’s senior vice president, Tom Shea, was an aide to both Corzine and then-President Clinton and a onetime high-level State Department official. In December, the Post followed up with a scoop that Corzine’s firm had been paying Teneo $125,000 a month for consulting services.

    In February, Politico reported that Clinton was altering his relationship with Teneo.

    On Thursday, the Post reported that President Clinton told Band, his longtime adviser and founder of the Clinton Global Initiative, to choose between CGI and Teneo. Band chose Teneo, the newspaper said. In his statement Thursday evening, Clinton said, “I hope and believe” Band is staying at the Clinton Global Initiative. Band told HuffPost that he is, in fact, staying.

    “I couldn’t have accomplished half of what I have in my post presidency without Doug Band,” Clinton said. “Doug is my counselor and a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, which was created at his suggestion. He tirelessly works to support the expansion of CGI’s activities and my other foundation work around the world. In our first 10 years, Doug’s strategic vision and fundraising made it possible for the foundation to survive and thrive. I hope and believe he will continue to advise me and build CGI for another decade.”

    The former president also responded indirectly to the Post’s report that Hillary Clinton was preparing to “nest” at the Clinton Global Initiative after her term as secretary of state expires, perhaps in preparation for a presidential bid.

    “The foundation’s rapid growth, the management strains caused by our work in Haiti — following similar efforts in the Gulf after Katrina and in Southeast Asia after the tsunami — and the fact that our Chairman Bruce Lindsey and I aren’t getting any younger, convinced me to undertake a management review to clarify what we needed to do as an organization to assure another decade of success,” Clinton said in his statement.

    “The review produced several positive suggestions, the most important of which was that we hire a full-time, New York-based foundation president, which we are currently in the process of doing. Outside of my foundation work, my personal office will handle special projects like Haiti and my work for Ireland, as well as my political and business activities.”

    While Politico qualifies the above with:

    “Bill Clinton denied a report that changes in his presidential foundation have come as a result of his wife’s involvement — and stood by a longtime aide who reportedly was under fire from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton….”

    On another front, this is an editorial from a Pakistani outlet called “The Frontier Post” and entitled “Hillary’s Threat” (March 2):
    =====

    This threat of Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, should be taken for real, not mere bluster, bullying or blackmail. She warns if Pakistan doesn’t pull out of the joint gas pipeline venture with their bete-noire Iran, it would carry grave consequences for it. Sure, this would. In their mad frenzy to discipline a defiant Iran, including a contemplated much-cherished regime change in Tehran, on the excuse of Iranian nuclear pursuit, the US movers and shakers across the board are applying all leverages in their bag on the world nations to kowtow their hostile line against the Islamic Republic. And many are falling in line, even the powerful ones, compliantly. While it itself has unsheathed biting sanctions on Iran, its collusive European Union (EU) has in cahoots imposed embargo on its members from receiving the Iranian oil supplies, which will come into play from the beginning of July.

    The crucial question then is if Pakistan can withstand the American coercion over this gas pipeline project, given so dismally is it presently placed economically as well as politically domestically. Iran has completed the infrastructure work on the pipeline on its side. But Pakistan is still to embark on it, for which it needs at least $1.2 billion. And this colossal sum is hard for it to muster from its own cash-strapped treasury. It will need foreign lenders to assist. But with America working its formidable clout on international lending agencies, it is inconceivable if that door is quite open to Pakistan for carrying out this project. Already, lenders like the World Bank have flatly declined funding of the project. Others, too, will certainly follow suit.

    Iran itself may not be much of a help in view of crippling US sanctions. Although the Islamic Republic is as yet standing up steadfastly to these sanctions, they have evidently begun biting into its flesh. For the strangulating banking sanctions that the Obama administration has unveiled, many world buyers of Iranian oil are being driven away to seek new suppliers, mostly in the Middle East, particularly the Arab monarchies. Even with concessionary rates, Iran may not be able to retain its old customers nor seduce very many new clients for these repressive American banking-sector sanctions. And barter deals may not be able to make up for the enormous oil revenues that enable the Islamic Republic raise enough money to run the state and develop it economically for public weal.

    An idea of the difficulty on this count can well be had from what petroleum and natural resources adviser Asim Hussain recently told a parliamentary committee. He said Pakistan had asked Iran for $500 million for working on the project but Tehran had agreed to provide only $250 million. Even that may become uncertain if Iran’s own financial difficulties aggravate because of the US sanctions and the EU oil embargo. Had the energy-hungry China become part of project for receiving the Iranian gas, perhaps some of the problem confronting Pakistan in executing the venture could have been mitigated. But China is no part. Indeed, it is slashing down its Iranian oil imports and contracting new suppliers to meet its demands. Russia is statedly interested in the venture but wants Pakistan to contract out the pipeline construction to its energy giant Gazprom.

    Then there is the issue of laying down the pipeline on our side. It has to pass through Balochistan, mostly the Baloch belt. And not just the proxies from amongst the Baloch diaspora that American sleuths and legislative panjandrums have set up are vowing never to let this pipeline pass through Balochistan. But also the sardari scions housed in privileged guest houses abroad publicly declare they will ingratiatingly welcome if the Americans, for that matter any other power, intervene on their side in separating Balochistan from Pakistan. What price they will be ready to pay their benefactors, if they are Americans, can easily be imagined.
    In any case, if the Americans are using stick, they are also dangling carrot to Pakistan to wean it away from the project. They speak of $one billion in aid to help it tide over its energy crisis. But with it bitter past experiences of such US pledges, what trust can Pakistan place on this promise? They renege on those solemn pledges as quickly as they make them, remorselessly. They say they have also already spent $120 million on energy project in Pakistan. But our people know nothing of it. They indeed want Pakistan to go for the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline project, which is still in process, but to leave the Iran-Pakistan joint venture, which is a done deal.

    But Pakistan’s need is urgent and pressing, which only its joint pipeline venture with Iran can meet. And the Islamabad establishment must tell the people how it wants to complete it, so that when the American axe falls they help it to throw it back disdainfully.

  • jeswezey

    And this is the official Pakistani reaction as reported in the WSJ blogging site (which has a photo of the classy foreign minister Khar):

    Pakistan Rejects U.S. Call to Drop Iran Pipeline

    By Tom Wright

    Pakistan is not shying away from a fight with the U.S. over Washington’s threat of sanctions if Islamabad continues to push ahead with plans for a gas pipeline to Iran.

    “All of these projects are in Pakistan’s national interest and will be pursued and completed irrespective of any extraneous considerations,” Ms. Khar said. “As far as our bilateral relations and co-operation is concerned, we do not make it contingent on views and policies of any third country.”

    For once, it appears Pakistan and India are taking a similar position. New Delhi, too, has argued that it needs Iranian crude oil to meet its energy needs, despite pressure from the U.S. to cut back.

    But could it be that leaders from both countries are likely to talk tough in public and take a more conciliatory path behind the scenes as Washington attempts to get countries to back its attempts to cut-off Iran’s sources of foreign currency?

    Well, this is exactly what Mrs. Clinton said she believed was going on – at least in India’s case — in remarks to U.S. Congress this week.

    “With respect to India, they are making steps that are heading in the right direction. In fact, I think in a number of instances, the actions of countries and their banks are better than the public statements that we sometimes hear them making,” she said. India has reportedly begun to look for alternate supplies of oil from Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

    Still, Pakistan is likely to prove a more difficult ally to get on board. For one, Pakistan’s energy crisis is more dire than India’s. The country relies on gas for half of its energy needs and is already facing massive shortfalls and daily blackouts which have gutted industrial production. For sure, the planned pipeline wouldn’t come on line until 2014 at the earliest. But Islamabad views the project as a key medium-term strategy to get itself out of a hole.

    U.S. Consul General in Lahore, Nina Maria Fite, made this point in remarks to Punjabi businessmen on Thursday. “You have other domestic programs which can be easily upgraded. You can work on them with co-ordination from us before considering the I-P gas pipeline to alleviate the country’s energy woes,” The Express Tribune newspaper quoted her as saying.

    There’s another reason, though, that Pakistan isn’t listening. After U.S. helicopters mistakenly killed 24 Pakistani soldiers on the border with Afghanistan in November, Islamabad froze diplomatic relations with the U.S. That means no delegations of senior Washington officials are coming through Pakistan. The country’s leaders remain furious the Obama administration has not officially apologized for the strike.

    In this climate it seems unlikely Pakistan will do what the U.S. wants, especially when – for now at least – it is not taking talk of sanctions seriously, knowing the U.S. wants a stable and economically-vibrant Pakistan to ensure Taliban militants don’t carve out a larger toe-hold there.

  • jeswezey

    And to make things better for Iran, India is not following US pleas for sanctions either. Hillary is not threatening India, though. This is from “IBN Live”:

    Despite sanctions, India to ramp up ties with Iran

    New Delhi/Washington: The US may be satisfied that India is “making steps in the right direction” to impose sanctions on Iran, but New Delhi has made it clear that it has no intention to stop oil imports from Iran or scale down business ties with Tehran.

    “With respect to India, they are making steps that are heading in the right direction,” US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a House panel in Washington Wednesday. But “I think that we have made progress – not enough, in my view – with respect to China.”

    “They (China) have actually worked with us to prevent certain businesses within China from continuing their trade,” Clinton said.

    “They have reached out to the Saudis and others to determine ways to make up their loss of oil if they cut what they receive from Iran. In fact, I think in a number of instances the actions of countries and their banks are better than the public statements that we sometimes hear them making,” she added.

    Besides India and China, “we’re having very candid conversations with a number of countries to try to impress on them our seriousness about enforcing sanctions which will have very difficult consequences for them,” she said.

    Reacting to Clinton’s statement, officials in New Delhi Thursday, however, maintained that India abides by the UN sanctions and not unilateral sanctions by individual countries or groupings.

    India’s position on importing oil from Iran was conveyed by Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai to senior US officials during his visit to Washington last month.

    In fact, India is understood to have used the New Delhi-aided Chabahar Port in Iran recently for the first time to transport 100,000 metric tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan as part of its humanitarian aid to the war-torn country.

    A delegation from India’s commerce ministry will be heading to Tehran later this month to explore new business opportunities.

    Last month, India sealed a payment mechanism under which Indian companies will pay for 45 percent of their crude oil imports from Iran in rupees.

    Not just oil, India is also stepping up the refurbishing of the Chabahar Port in Iran and a strategic railway link that will offer it direct access to Afghanistan and the energy-rich Central Asia.

    India continues to buy Iranian oil and expand economic relations with Iran. Iran used to supply 12 percent of India’s oil imports, but for some time its share has dropped to 10 percent.

    The Communist Party of India-Marxist Thursday claimed that oil imports from Iran were being “quietly” reduced in spite of official statements that India would continue to buy oil from that country, and accused the government of caving in to American “pressure”.

    “Notwithstanding Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s statement that India will continue to buy oil from Iran, quietly steps are being taken to reduce oil imports from Iran,” senior CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury said.

    He quoted figures to show that crude imports from Iran had fallen from 21.8 million tonnes in 2008-09 to 18.5 million tonnes in 2010-11 and to 13.1 million tonnes in the current fiscal year, with the oil ministry giving “instructions to the state oil companies to explore other sources.”

  • jeswezey

    In reaction to which, Hillary is forced to backpedal:

    WASHINGTON: The US State Department indulged in a damage-control exercise on Thursday, urging Pakistanis not to see Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statement on a proposed gas pipeline from Iran as a threat.

    Secretary Clinton told a congressional hearing on Wednesday that the project was “inexplicable” and could invoke US sanctions that would further ‘undermine’ Pakistan’s ‘already shaky’ economy.

    “Yesterday Secretary Clinton at the Hill said that Pakistan will face dangerous implications if it goes ahead with this gas pipeline with Iran. Was this some kind of warning to Pakistan? And why was it so?” a journalist asked State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland on Thursday.

    “Well, I don’t think what the secretary said was appreciably different than what we’ve been saying for weeks and weeks, publicly, privately, if not months on this subject,” Ms Nuland replied. “You know, this is something that we don’t think is a good idea, and the secretary made that absolutely clear.”

    The US official noted that Iran was making “all kinds of offers to all kinds of countries”, to break strict sanctions the United States and its allies had imposed on Tehran to persuade it to abandon its nuclear weapons programme. “And they often don’t live up to their promises,” Ms Nuland claimed.

    The State Department official claimed the US was aware of Pakistan’s energy needs and was working with Islamabad to meet those needs. “And we would just encourage them to think twice about aligning themselves with an ‘unreliable partner’,” she said.

    “Can you tell us what kind of implications Pakistan would face when it goes ahead with this pipeline? Because the foreign minister of Pakistan today said Pakistan is going ahead with this pipeline project,” asked another journalist.

    “Well, again, you know that we have a variety of sanctions on the books that we would not want to see kick in this instance, which is, you know, among the reasons why we think this is a bad idea and hope it doesn’t move forward,” Ms Nuland replied.

  • jeswezey

    My first reaction to all the above concerning Pakistan and India is that, while these two countries have been at each other’s throats for 60 years, they seem to agree on the idea of not picking a fight with Iran, and certainly not over non-proliferation because the two countries are themselves nuclear powers.

    The second thing I see is that we are having a hard time stirring up international animosity against Iran. Iran is nowhere near as isolated as we would like it to be, or even as the US public thinks it is. Iran has ‘allies’ of varying temperatures ranging east-west from India to Algeria and north-south from Russia (and China) to the horn of Africa.

    This should give pause to those of us who prone a “pre-emptive” strike by Israel against Iran and how such a thing would be viewed, and reacted to on the ground, by the other countries in the region. Think especially: the Moscow/Damascus/Teheran axis.

    Michael Savage comes right out and opines Breitbart might have been assassinated because of his announcement he is in possession of BO tapes.

    Says those tapes should be released immediately by whoever now holds them or they will never see the light of day.

    Breitbart’s death is a HUGE deal for this country as he was one of the most persuasive, fearless, powerful voices out there fighting against the BO regime.

    Who will replace him? Who is out there with the balls to unveil ACORN, reveal the true Anthony Weiner, look into voter fraud?

    No one.

    The regime was terrified of the tapes and so they arranged for a rendezvous with an assassin.

    That’s my two cents.

    Stephen Bannon: We’ll release the tapes Breitbart has of Obama’s college years in the next 10 days

    posted at 9:56 pm on March 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

    Via Mediaite, here’s the hotly anticipated answer to the lingering question raised by Breitbart’s CPAC speech. No, he wasn’t just messing with the left’s head when he said he has tapes of The One in his younger years. They exist, says Bannon, and he and some of the “Big” guys like Joel Pollak and Larry O’Connor are going through them. They must be near the end of their review too if Bannon can promise them as soon as 10 days from now. Obviously there’ll be organizational upheaval for them to deal with in the days ahead, especially with a new Breitbart site set to launch imminently. Watch to the end for a hint about that; supposedly it’s been in the works for two years and AB was putting the finishing touches on it last night in preparation for a Sunday launch. I assume it has to do with Obama and the election, but stay tuned.

  • BASIL99

    On his program Thursday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke with Steve Bannon (producer of The Undefeated, among various other films) about a series of tapes Andrew Breitbart claimed to have about Barack Obama. Breitbart mentioned the tapes during his recent CPAC speech, sharing that “[w]e are going to vet [Barack Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

    Bannon confirmed that there exists a series of tapes taken during Obama’s time at Harvard, which will be publicly released “in a week or two.” Breitbart has been “very systematic about going through this thing,” Bannon added.

    Additionally, the late activist / media personality had been working around the clock on a new website slated to be launched this weekend.

    A suspicious package delivered to radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh’s residence on North Ocean Drive this afternoon turned out to be nothing more than a “business opportunity” from a listener, town police said this evening.

    Town police and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad opened the unsolicited 18-by-18-inch package around 7 p.m. to discover it contained an electronic plaque commemorating the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth, said Fred Hess, Palm Beach police spokesman.

    Hess would not reveal the name of the person who sent the package, but he said he lived in the Pittsburgh area and that town police had spoken with him. The man had sent the plaque to Limbaugh, thinking the politically conservative host would want to join him in a business venture, police said.

    Andrew Breitbart was ‘in talks with CNN’ over new show with Anthony Weiner before he died aged just 43

    Show would have been comeback for ex-congressman forced to quit after campaign from conservative firebrand Breitbart

    Andrew Breitbart, the conservative firebrand and new media pioneer who died suddenly at just 43, had told friends he was poised to take his jihad against the Left deeper into the mainstream media with a regular show on CNN.

    Last weekend, Breitbart told friends he was in early talks with CNN about a Crossfire-style show in which he would argue from the Right alongside former US House representative Anthony Weiner taking him on from the Left.

    Such a show could have been a blockbuster. In what was perhaps his finest hour, Breitbart was the man who ended the political career of Weiner by revealing that the married congressman he had sent lewd photographs sent to young women via Twitter.

    It would also have been a dramatic move for CNN, which previously brought in disgraced Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as New York governor after his trysts with a high-end prostitute were revealed, for a show that was subsequently dropped.

    Separately, Breitbart had been asked last Friday by Hollywood screenwriter ans producer Aaron Sorkin about how he might be portrayed in Sorkin’s new HBO series The Newsroom, about the inner workings of a cable news network.
    Aaron Sorkin had also recently spoken to Breitbart about portraying him in Sorkin’s new show The Newsroom

    Aaron Sorkin had also recently spoken to Breitbart about portraying him in Sorkin’s new show The Newsroom

    Sorkin told me via email: ‘I e-mailed Andrew last Friday because the episode of The Newsroom I’m currently writing takes place during the week the Anthony Weiner photos were in the news.

    ‘Andrew and I had struck up a friendly e-mail relationship and so I reached out to ask him if he could give me a timeline of the events from his point of view. I got a quick response -‘I’m in’ – and we were supposed to meet for coffee at the end of the day today [Thursday].’

    Sorkin said that the coffee would have been ‘about Andrew shedding any new light on the Anthony Weiner incident’ and ‘we’ll likely see shards of Andrew during his various appearances that week’ in news footage from that time.

    Confidants of Breitbart say he had some reservations about a CNN show but would probably have signed up for it. He was intrigued by the notion of a show with Weiner, believing it could be a vehicle for real discussion of ideas.

    Edie Emery, spokeswoman for CNN, said that CNN had no comment.

    I first met Breitbart in 2007, when he was still working in relative obscurity for the Drudge Report. Engaging and irrepressible, he had a passion for taking on liberals and delighted in doing so from his native Los Angeles, which he viewed as the belly of the beast.

    Working from the basement of his home in Brentwood, he would post stories on the Drudge Report that would be read by millions and help shape the media narrative. In each pretty much each corner of virtually every room was some kind of Apple device so that he would always be connected to the world outside.

    He was proud that the house was right next to the LA National Cemetery, where many American troops were buried and military funerals were often held. He told me that his real estate agent had told him the proximity to the cemetery meant the house was worth less but to him it increased its value.

    Although he saw the mainstream media as the enemy, he understood it and knew many of its main players. This enabled him to use the media, sometimes from with, as well as oppose it. I remember him telling me that the internet had been invented for him because is provided an outlet for his Attention Deficit Disorder, with which he had been diagnosed.

    Shortly afterwards, Breitbart burst onto the national scene, leaving Drudge to set up his Big Government websites. Almost overnight, he became a conservative megastar.

    The next time I saw him in LA was last September, when we met for drinks at Barney’s Beanery in Westwood with mutual friends. By this time, one of the weapons he used to fight the Left was Twitter. As he approached, wearing a t-shirt from a Tea Party group he had spoken to, he was walking and tweeting.

    Although he could come across as an angry figure, particularly when on the defensive on television, the reality was that Breitbart loved life and had an immense capacity for humour and mischief. Adopted by a secular Jewish couple, he had grown up holding conventional political views (his natural father was an Irish musician; he knew who his birth parents were but had no interest in meeting them).

    Despite his fearlessness, he was also a sensitive soul and a very affectionate husband to Susie and father of four. He gloried in his battles, re-tweeting the vilest things said about him to shame and expose their authors. But he told me that he had wondered about the effect of his public persona when his son had been upset relating how a school friend had said to him: ‘My father says that your father is evil’.

    Breitbart says “Wait until yu see what happens on March 1st.”

    Guess what happens on March 1st. He’s killed.

    In a stunning coincidence, It appears Andrew Breitbart suffered his untimely death just hours before he was set to release damning video footage that could have sunk Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

    Around three weeks ago on February 9 during the ‘Blog Bash’ event in Washington DC, Breitbart made a prophetic comment that takes on a somewhat chilling nature given the fact that he died in the early hours of March 1st.

    Speaking to Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News, Breitbart stated, “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

    It’s almost certain that Breitbart was referring to his plan to release damning footage of President Obama that he had been promising to reveal throughout the month of February.

    As we reported yesterday, Breitbart spoke of his intention to release the tape during his CPAC speech last month. The footage shows Obama in his college days appearing alongside former Weather Underground terrorists Bill and Bernardine Dohrn. Observers had speculated that the footage could have derailed Obama’s hopes for a second term.

    “I’ve got video from his college days that show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008 – the videos are going to come out,” said Breitbart, adding that Obama would be vetted.

    You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to appreciate the downright weirdness of Breitbart predicting a major event to occur on March 1st, only for him to end up dying on that very date. Breitbart was officially pronounced dead at 12:19am.

    A d v e r t i s e m e n t

    Although the cause of Breitbart’s death was hastily reported to be of “natural causes,” the Los Angeles County coroner’s office have refused to confirm anything until an autopsy has been performed.

    According to marketing executive Arthur Sando, Breitbart spent his final hour in a bar near his home called the Brentwood sipping red wine and talking politics. After leaving the bar at around 11:30pm, Breitbart began to walk home before apparently suffering a fatal heart attack.

    Although it is reported that Breitbart was rushed to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, when Lawrence Sinclair called the hospital, they denied that anyone by that name had been admitted within the previous 72 hours.

    Had Breitbart lived his vision for future shows would have been amazing television. For once we would be receiving televised information from a reliable source and to boot the possibility of reshaping and humanizing the persona of Tony Weiner through a talk show. Then having Aaron Sorkin writing a series using RL current events through Breitbart’s eyes would have been a blockbuster hit.. The motives to destroy Breitbart just keep building.

    How sad…not only a loss to Breitbart’s immediate family… but a loss to us of what might have been-

    ‘I find it amazing that Breitbart’s final interview was last night and it was with Sheriff Joe Arpaio about his recent investigation of Obama’s BC. It was announced by Arpaio’s team today at the press conference that a person of interest and the computer that was used had been identified in the possible BC fraud. Imagine what Breitbart would have done with that news!’

    “Although he could come across as an angry figure, particularly when on the defensive on television, the reality was that Breitbart loved life and had an immense capacity for humour and mischief. Adopted by a secular Jewish couple, he had grown up holding conventional political views (his natural father was an Irish musician; he knew who his birth parents were but had no interest in meeting them).”

    Another tidbit we didn’t know about- perhaps because of his adopted upbringing Brietbart’s destiny was as it should have been. Had he been raised by his biological parents he might have been a musician instead of the force he became to be reckoned with-

    It’s old school journalism to post a source link along with the article practically a cornerstone in the writers community. A friend of mine had spent months writing a 12 pt series on Obama but because he avoided linking his sources, all his hard work gleaning information was rejected because the sources weren’t easily verifiable or footnoted with a source. Where PINK is notoriously accurate with the claims made in admin’s articles because the sources are linked to the claims. The Readers at Pink depend on good information.. you can post a headline with a link.. not too difficult.

    And I agree, articles can be sourced individually when no link is provided.. however, it becomes very labor intensive when there are four or five in a row and the alternative of spending an afternoon relinking articles from a search engine sort of devalues interest in the effort.

    More on Breitbart from the UK link:
    __________________

    “During his speech, however, he was on vintage form, describing Barack Obama as ‘the metronome’ and his allies as ‘the alligators’. He declared proudly: ‘I’m out there fighting with the metronome. I’m out there fighting with the alligators.’ At another point, he said: ‘I’m fighting these people as hard as I can. They’re totalitarians.’

    He urged conservatives to ‘stop acting like Leftists’ in denouncing those who backed Republican candidates who might not pass this or that purity test and said it was essential to get behind whoever was the nominee.

    As usual, he was extremely funny, joking about how he had shaved his stubble and cut his hair after Occupy people said that ‘I look like a bum’. In describing an anti-Republican media narrative designed to divert attention from unemployment and gas prices by highlighting social issues, he said: ‘I have four children. I took care of the thing down there. Contraception’s not in the top two billion things in my world.’

    He branded MSNBC ‘race card television’ and that if a conservative said ‘gymnasium’ on television, the response would be: ”Gym’ originates in antebellum South Carolina. You’re all racist!’

    The next day, he took a car to Detroit airport with filmmaker Ann McElhinney, another speaker and a close friend. As he got in, he told her: ‘I feel awful. I feel really bad.’ She put it down to a hangover.

    In the car, they discussed Aaron Sorkin – on Friday night, he had shown her the email from Sorkin – and the prospect of a CNN with Weiner. Breitbart felt that such a CNN show would rehabilitate Weiner but he wanted to ensure it would be serious and would involve going out and talking to real people as well as back-and-forth in the studio.

    They talked about Fox News, which Breitbart felt was stuck in the past with too many blonde presenters and outdated formats. One of the journalists he admired most, he said, was Dana Loesch, who worked for him as Big Government and is now also CNN contributor. He described her as a ‘warrior princess’, effective because she was cool and modern.

    Breitbart thought that the Left feared people like Loesch most because she was an attractive, engaging, hip person who did not fit the stereotype of dour, fusty conservative. Essentially, the same thing could have been said about him.

    One of Breibart’s central arguments was that conservatives had allowed themselves to be excluded from popular culture – film, television, music, even art. He was a central figure in the largely undercover world of Hollywood conservatism.

    At the end of his speech in Troy, he said that conservatives would have to endure the race card and the ‘fairness’ card being played against them in the coming election. ‘This is warfare. They’re at war with you and the very idea that you’re still here shows that the Tea Party mindset is alive and kicking.’

    Who would have thought that the fiercest and most formidable conservative warrior of all was about to leave the battlefield.
    _______________

    Every paragraph contains more and more reasons for someone ending Breitbart’s escalation on to the public view. But that’s the way it happens when someone comes along fierce enough and bold enough and rustles the establishment’s feathers- whether it be the political establishment or something as simple as a blog when you question the clique mentality of group think.

    Here’s a vignette of AB. Lighthearted:
    Andrew Breitbart R.I.P.: One day in the summer of 2010 I woke up to a commotion outside my door. It took me a while to figure out what was going on, but it turned out that my neighbor, Jodie Evans, was having a fundraiser for her friend Jerry Brown, then running (successfully) for Governor. But there were protesters. Specifically, Andrew Breitbart, who was gliding around on rollerskates with a video camera, trying to catch Brown in the act of attending the party. I thought it was a little risky of Brown to go to Evans’ house–her Code Pink organization does some wild things. But what struck me most was the mood–the way the lefties in the party and Brietbart waved to each other. It turns out they knew him. He’d gone to the Brentwood School with some of them. “Everybody tells me he’s a good guy,” one of the aggrieved Brown funders later conceded.

    Obama Administration Guilty of “Treason” in War Against Jihad Terror?

    In a time of war intentionally and deliberately engaging in an action that would provide advance information concerning a future, or pending, military operation to the enemy is treason.

    Senator John McCain has leveled a charge that the Obama Administration has deliberately and intentionally sought to undermine our ally Israel by leaking information regarding a possible Israeli military strike against Iran’s nuclear sites:

    “Sen. John McCain on Sunday lashed out at the Obama administration’s handling of rising tensions between Israel and Iran.

    McCain told CNN’s “State of the Union” that the administration intentionally leaked to the media the reason for the US national security adviser’s trip to Israel – to try to persuade the country not to attack Iran.

    McCain said the leak weakened Israel’s standing in its faceoff with Iran, rightly angered Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and strained US-Israel relations.”

    And there is this:

    [“In recent months Obama administration officials have leaked secret strategy meetings with Mossad chief Tamir Pardo on Iran, as well as Israel’s theoretical timetable for an Iran strike.

    They have also taken the unprecedented step of siding with Iran in accusing Israel of supporting the People’s Mujahadeen of Iran in an assassination campaign targeting Iranian nuclear scientists.”]

    –read the rest at Arutz Sheva here.

    Imagine if the administration of the late president FDR deliberately and intentionally leaked information publically that would undermine a pending allied military operation against the German nazis during World War II.

    This is the exact same thing.

    Obama heckled on Iran at NYC fundraiser NO mention of this by network buttkissers?

    As President Obama spoke to hundreds of 20- and 30-somethings packed into a steamy home furnishings showroom in New York Thursday, a woman in the crowd apparently felt it important to air her views.

    “Use your leadership!” she yelled out, according to a pool report. “No war in Iran!”

    The president, smiling, responded, “Nobody’s announced a war, young lady. But we appreciate your sentiment. You’re jumping the gun a little bit.”

    The exchange occurred at a star-studded campaign fundraiser at ABC Carpet & Home, where the hosts included Deepak Chopra and Russell Simmons, among others, and the program included performances by The Roots, Ben Folds and Ingrid Michaelson. Some 900 people paid at least $1,000 each to attend the event.

    Stephen Bannon: We’ll release the tapes Breitbart has of Obama’s college years in the next 10 days

    Via Mediaite, here’s the hotly anticipated answer to the lingering question raised by Breitbart’s CPAC speech. No, he wasn’t just messing with the left’s head when he said he has tapes of The One in his younger years. They exist, says Bannon, and he and some of the “Big” guys like Joel Pollak and Larry O’Connor are going through them. They must be near the end of their review too if Bannon can promise them as soon as 10 days from now. Obviously there’ll be organizational upheaval for them to deal with in the days ahead, especially with a new Breitbart site set to launch imminently. Watch to the end for a hint about that; supposedly it’s been in the works for two years and AB was putting the finishing touches on it last night in preparation for a Sunday launch. I assume it has to do with Obama and the election, but stay tuned.

    Los Angeles County coroner’s officials are trying to determine the exact cause of Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death Thursday at age 43.

    Sources said Breitbart appeared to have died of natural causes but an autopsy was planned to determine the specific cause.

    “It looks like a heart attack, but no one knows until” an autopsy is done, his father-in-law, actor Orson Bean, told The Times.

    So much the better. Of course, even if the autopsy shows heart failure and a high level of alcohol in the blood, people are still going to suspect foul play.

    In the 1990s, the brother of a good friend of mine died of a heart attack at age 40 or 41. He had no history of heart problems, was not on medication, had not consumed alcohol or drugs, was not under particular stress at work. But, like all the members of that family, and like Breitbart, he was very high-strung. My friend has been seeing a psychiatrist regularly ever since that sad event.

    Colo. gov. accidentally calls Lt. gov. ‘sex star’ (in front of school kids)

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s flattering comments about Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia turned into a bit of a flub.

    The governor mistakenly referred to Garcia as a “rising sex star” Wednesday. He made the remark while introducing him at a childhood literacy event attended by about 40 children at a Denver elementary school.

    Hickenlooper routinely introduces Garcia as a “rising star” and a “rock star” at public events. The Democrat immediately caught his slip, which was recorded by radio station KOA. The Denver Post reported the comments Thursday.

    According to the tape, Hickenlooper says, “Now I get to introduce that rising sex star — symbol. I mean, symbol — not star.”

    After some awkward laughter, he deadpanned that it might go down as one of his most difficult news conferences.

    From the Arpaio news conference: – Breitbart’s last interview was allegedly with Arpaio. Interesting, no?

    “We have a retired government employee who had a conversation in the eighties with Barack Obama in the front yard of the home of the mother of Bill Ayers.

    You all know Bill Ayers. During that conversation the mother of Bill Ayers introduced this government employee to Mr. Obama as a foreign student who they were assisting in getting education for in the United states. That also is around the same time frame that this selective service card was issued,
    purportedly issued.

    This individual is willing to come forward. That takes courage. There are too many things in the background that we cannot clear.

    And what I did tell the sheriff. I could not come to him and say he cleared a background to be an employee of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.”

    Islamaphobia, NOT allowed

    The Islamic Circle of North America, a New York-based group, is spending $3 million on its Defending Religious Freedom campaign, which kicks off Monday and explains Sharia law and common misunderstandings to everyday Americans.

    The effort includes billboards, TV and radio ads in 25 major cities, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, in addition to town hall meetings and seminars on university campuses led by Muslim academics and activists. Each directs audiences to a website and manned hotline, 1-855-Shariah.

    The campaign is a response to efforts to ban Sharia law over the last two years in state legislatures and on ballot initiatives, said Naeem Baig, vice president of public affairs for Islamic Circle of North America. Republican presidential candidates also have raised the Sharia debate.

    “It’s a small minority of Islamophobes that are pushing the anti-Sharia bills, but it’s becoming mainstream. Now, even presidential hopefuls like Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are talking about Sharia,” said Baig. “We see it not only an issue of Sharia but an issue of broader religious freedom.”

    [Is 20,000,000 considered a small group?]

    Baig said comments by Gingrich helped spur the campaign. The GOP contender said in South Carolina in January that he would support a Muslim-American president only if that person denounced Sharia. In a 2010 speech in Washington he summarized the anti-Sharia movement: “Stealth jihadis use political, cultural, societal, religious, intellectual tools” as a way to “replace Western civilization with a radical imposition of Sharia,” Gingrich said.

    http://www.infowars.com/breitbart-wait-til-they-see-what-happens-march-1st/
    ————————————–
    Well, there’s a chance that Breitbart planned on taking the conclusion and facts from the posse’ investigation on that March 1st and blow it out there and then follow that up with his own explosive pictures and damning connection of Obama to Ayres much earlier on in his life than he said. And Breitbart was bold enough to shout it out even on FOX and any MSM he was allowed on. With all of the powers and their various means of “quiet snuffing” out of “undesirables” surrounding this regime the conspiracy theories have a lot of reason behind them other than tin foil hat theories.

    I agree 1000% with Newt about this.

    — As Newt Gingrich campaigns through the state he used to represent in Congress, he continues to suggest President Barack Obama is more sympathetic to Islam than Christianity.

    The former House speaker uses the recent fights over whether Catholic institutions should pay for contraception and increased violence in Afghanistan to suggest the president does not place a priority on American interests.

    “President Obama is very quick to apologize for Islam while he attacks the Catholic Church,” Mr. Gingrich said here Thursday night. “You’ll notice he’s very sensitive about problems involving Islam, but he has a willingness…” Mr. Gingrich said before changing topics. “This is the most anti-religious administration in American history.”

    As we all learned in 2007 and 2008 that people you trust and believe have your best interest at heart WILL call for a 2×4 upside of your head behind your back. Additionally, it is to be remembered all the people who were killed outright and who died of mysterious circumstances at very opportune times for the ‘others.’ Furthermore, as stated in a post above what about all those who used to be senisible but have been shut down or ostracized in some form. This is not even to mention those who so ardently backed Hillary but now sing the song of the suicide for America.

    Some people are weak, some people can be bought, some people succumb to threats, some people just go with the flow wherever that might increase their bottom line, some people are just evil and have no convictions on a saintly side. But this will be the time that all the chaff gets separated from the wheat. For now it comes down to Are You FOR America or Are You AGAINST America? The world will know sooner than later.

    Since first announcing the formation of a “cold case posse” to investigate the legitimacy of Barack Hussein Obama’s claim to Constitutional occupation of the White House,Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been at once the object of legacy media smears and new media encouragement. And although the information gathered in the 6 month effort will probably not change the minds of many dedicated Obamabots,it has provided stark and irrefutable evidence that “person or persons unknown” worked long and hard in a systematic effort to obscure the truth about Barack Obama’s birth,heritage,and qualifications to serve as President of the United States.

    Consisting of law enforcement officials and attorneys with law enforcement experience,Joe Arpaio’s Posse has turned up the following information:

    3.) Perhaps the most interesting finding of the team and arguably one of the most damning concerned records of airline flights to the United States in 1961,the year in which Obama was born. As the file distributed at the press conference states:

    “Records of Immigration and Naturalization Service cards filled out by airplane passengers arriving on international flights originating outside the United States in the month of August 1961,examined at the National Archives in Washington,D.C.,are missing records for the week of President Obama’s birth,including the dates Aug. 1,1961 through Aug. 7,1961.”
    As Zullo stated,thousands of records on microfilm were turned over for use by the Cold Case Posse,yet only those during the week of Obama’s birth went somehow missing! A truly remarkable coincidence.

    Sheriff Arpaio made it clear that he was not accusing Barack Obama of any crime,but considers it imperative that the What,Who,When and Why of the fraudulent documents be discovered and that the guilty parties brought to justice.

    According to the Sheriff,the most important question may be where to go from here. “This investigation is not over,” said Arpaio,very forcefully. And who will continue it is the matter uppermost in the minds of the investigators. They express no confidence in Hawaiian officials. And who in their position would turn things over to the Department of Justice? Arpaio favors a Congressional investigation. But the political intrigues inherent in such a proposal are staggering,especially in an election year.

    The Posse has numerous sworn affidavits from individuals all over the world. These are people willing to come forth and tell their stories. In fact,just prior to the end of the press conference,Zullo told the story of a now retired government employee who was introduced to Barack Obama at the home of Bill Ayers! He states that he was told Obama was a foreign student,studying in the US! This was about the same time that the Selective Service card would have been mismarked!

    Take Joe Arpaio’s word. This investigation is NOT over.

    1.) The purported “long form birth certificate” published on the White House website last year is a computer generated forgery consisting of at least 9 layers of selected information and photo shopped into one “document.” It is NOT a scan or copy of a single,genuine document. A portion of the evidence supporting this claim includes the fact that name and date stamps of the Hawaii Department of Health Registrar were “computer generated images imported into an electronic document,as opposed to actual rubber stamp imprints inked by hand or machine onto a paper document.”

    Mike Zullo,retired New Jersey police detective and lead Posse investigator,says the team believes “…the Hawaii Department of Health has engaged in a systematic effort to hide from public inspection any original 1961 birth records it may have in its possession.”

    2.) The date stamp used on Obama’s Selective Service Card was not one used at the time (1980). Obama’s card shows a #2 (2 digit) pica stamp,but all others used by the post office at which he turned in his card were stamped with a #4 (4 digit).

Why wait? Why show it on Hannity? You have your own website full of videos….all you have to do is upload and hit send! Otherwise we should all ask whether or not the truly damning evidence has not been edited out!

    Breitbart’s tapes: Why would they not release them soon? Ten days seems like a long time to me, time enough for them to go missing.

    Here is the scandal that Santorum created that sSantorum has campaigned on the fact that his seven kids have been home-schooled, which has earned him a loyal following of foot soldiers within the evangelical movement. (The same goes for Rep. Michele Bachmann, who on Tuesday dropped out of the presidential race.) Over the past year, Santorum has appeared at a handful of home-schooling conferences. In April, he won the Home School Legal Defense Association’s straw poll. There’s even a “Homeschoolers for Santorum” Facebook page.

    But Santorum wasn’t always so opposed to government-run schools—especially one Pennsylvania cyber charter school that offered students free computers, internet service, and online classes. Between 2001 and 2004, that online school allowed the Santorum family to live in Virginia, while sticking Pennsylvania taxpayers with a $100,000 bill.

    In 2004, Santorum spawned a minor scandal when news broke that he was no longer residing in the state that sent him to Congress and was living instead outside the Beltway in Leesburg, Virginia. Santorum owned, and still does, a house in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, next door to his in-laws. The Santorums bought the three-bedroom house in 1997 for $87,800. But after Santorum got elected to the Senate in 1994, he bought a much larger home in Virginia that would accommodate his ever-growing family. Some relatives moved into the Penn Hills house, but Santorum continued to use it to claim residency in Pennsylvania, where he voted by absentee ballot.
    .Advertise on MotherJones.com
    Despite moving his family to Virginia, Santorum didn’t enroll his children in a local public school. Nor did the Santorums simply home-school the kids. Instead, in 2001, they enrolled five of their kids in the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, based out of tiny Beaver County, Pennsylvania. The school was founded by Nick Trombetta, a former wrestling coach who set up an online charter school in a depopulated part of the state and turned it into a financial powerhouse that rakes in millions annually in public education funds. (In 2007, Trombetta, a major Republican donor in the state, was the subject of a state grand jury investigation into his use of millions in public funds to build a performing arts center near the school’s headquarters, among other things. No charges have been brought.)

    Considered a public school, the online charter’s students are required to take state-mandated assessments and meet other formal requirements not demanded of traditional home-schoolers. But it offers home-schoolers lots of advantages, notably free computers and internet connections. When Santorum enrolled his kids there, the local school district in Penn Hills was forced to pick up the tab for the cyber school, which cost the district $38,000 a year for the Santorum children.

    After four years, the press got wind of this in 2004, and Democrats raised a fuss about the fact that their senator didn’t actually live in Pennsylvania, much less the Penn Hills school district that was footing the bills for his children’s education in Virginia. The local school board, which included a member who was the local Democratic Party committee chair, attempted to force Santorum to repay the district $100,000 in tuition.

    When the scandal broke, Trombetta, the founder of the charter school, offered to let Santorum’s kids stay enrolled for free if Santorum would pay the technology costs. In the end, with Democrats challenging his residency in the state, Santorum withdrew his kids from the school. He never repaid a dime. The state ended up settling with the school district and repaying $55,000 in tuition fees. (The Santorum campaign did not respond to a request for comment.)

    Even today, nearly eight years after the charter school scandal, Santorum’s residency issues continue to dog him. On the campaign trail, distancing himself from the dreaded Washington insider label, he has highlighted his Pennsylvania roots. In August, at a campaign event in Iowa, he handed out samples of “Pennsylvania Presidential Peach Preserves,” which he claimed were made by his family from peaches they picked off their trees back home. But as the Roxborough-Manayunk, Pennsylvania, Patch pointed out on Tuesday, there’s not a peach tree to be found anywhere near the Santorum home in Penn Hills. The web site speculated that the peaches must have come from elsewhere—Santorum’s $1.26 million manse in Great Falls, Virginia, perhaps.

    wept him out of the PA senate seat.

    vnity4usa,

    I agree, the March 1 date Breitbart alluded to meant the tape release date and he was killed before they could come out. Arpaio, to his credit, did not cancel his presser. Let’s see how whoever is now in charge handles the hot potato. I know I would be d@mn uncomfortable about being in possession of tapes one could get murdered over.

    I can understand why they are not immediately available. From what I understand Breitbart was a hands-on guy and probably did most of the work himself. I read one account that he had been working on this project for several years. Someone else will have to get up to speed to check the tapes and get them in condition for release as well as securing the distribution routes.

    GM laying off 1300 due to low Volt sales

    http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/gm-laying-1300-due-low-volt-sales/406771

    General Motors Co. announced the temporary suspension of Chevrolet Volt production and the layoffs of 1300 employees, as the company is cutting Volt manufacturing to meet lower-than-expected demand for the electric cars.

    “Even with sales up in February over January, we are still seeking to align our production with demand,” GM spokesman Chris Lee said. The car company had hoped to sell 45,000 Chevy Volts in America this year, according to the Detrot News, but has only sold about 1,626 over the first two months of 2012.

    “GM blamed the lack of sales in January on “exaggerated” media reports and the federal government’s investigation into Volt batteries catching fire, which officially began in November and ended Jan. 21,” the Ann Arbor (Mich.) News reported.

    The laid-off employees will be rehired April 23rd, when GM resumes production of the Volt.

    Filmmaker Steve Bannon: Breitbart‘s Tapes of Obama’s College Years to Be Released in 7 to 10 Days

    “I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” new media mogul Andrew Breitbart proclaimed at this year’s CPAC event.

    Breitbart was, of course, referring to clips that allegedly show President Barack Obama during his college days — videos that the media leader claimed would show “why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

    These tapes, which have inspired conspiracy theories surrounding what led to Breitbart’s death on Thursday of natural causes at the age of 43, are now purportedly going to be released (Glenn Beck has strongly cautioned viewers against jumping to conclusions connecting the tapes to Breitbart’s death).

    On Thursday evening, Steve Bannon, a writer and documentary filmmaker (“The Undefeated”), told FOX News‘ Sean Hannity that Breitbart’s company will release the mysterious Obama Harvard tapes within seven to 10 days.

    After Hannity brought up the tapes that Breitbart said “would change this election,” Bannon gave more information regarding when the public can expect to see them.

    “There‘s a set of tapes and we’re going through it,” Bannon announced. “The staff…the guys are going through a series of tapes of President Obama at Harvard and…we’ll come back to you in a week or two and show them here on the Hannity show.”

    “In one week, we’ll have these tapes?,” Hannity asked.

    Bannon confirmed that they should be ready for release in a week to 10 days.

    Watch the interview with Bannon, below (comments begin around 3:50):

    Fantastic- Now I can sleep easier tonight. Vlad is on the job and had vowed to defend Christianity. Cossacks vs Muslims? No Contest…

    Putin declared Catholicism as the official religion of Russia back in 08′, (I think-)
    _________________

    Vladimir Putin Vows to Defend Christianity Worldwide

    The representative of the Russian Orthodox Church has told Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin this week of the urgent situation Christians are facing around the world in persecution hot spots, and has asked him to use his power to aid their situations.

    RT online reported that Metropolitan Hilarion, foreign relation chief of the Russian Orthodox Church presented evidence and statistics that stated, “Every five minutes one Christian was dying for his or her faith in some part of the word.”

    Christians face persecution in many nations; from church demolition in Afghanistan and bombings of churches in Iraq, to the violence against Christians taking place in rebellious towns in Syria.

    After delivering the facts, Metropolitan Hilarion asked Putin to make protection and defense of Christianity around the globe a major part of his foreign policy.

    And, as reported by Interfax, Putin replied, “You needn’t have any doubt that that’s the way it will be,” assuring Hilarion that Russian foreign policy would defend Christians from persecution abroad.

    Putin’s recent actions seem to confirm his promise. Last week, Putin vetoed a U.N. motion calling for Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to step down. Syrian Christians received this as good news. Assad is of the Alawite sect of Islam. Alawites and Christians are both religious minorities in Syria. Syrian Christians feel that sharing this minority status means Assad will provide them with protection. A Syrian Christian woman even told The Global Post, “Thank God for Russia. Without Russia we are doomed.”

    I mean, WTF!

    This is beyond evil. It is positively satanic.

  • BASIL99

    And, let me add, while I have had no need for contraception for quite a while I remember the cost being extremely modest – less than $50 a month or maybe even $25. Who needs $3G a year for contraception? What am I missing here?

  • BASIL99

    Glad Vlad is on the side of the non-muslims and at least has the balls to come out and say that.e

  • BASIL99

    The president clearly thinks it’s advantageous to keep conservatives preoccupied with his contraception mandate because he sure ensures the topic stays in the spotlight. Today, he did that with a rare personal phone call to Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who earlier this week testified in support of the mandate by saying that she and her peers are “going broke” to buy birth control.

    In response to Fluke’s congressional testimony, radio host Rush Limbaugh called the Georgetown coed a “slut” and a “prostitute.” With those comments, he touched off a larger controversy. The DCCC and Emily’s List raised funds off Rush’s comments, while Congressional Democrats immediately demanded that Republican leadership disavow his words. House Speaker John Boehner did so tepidly, calmly calling Limbaugh’s remarks “inappropriate,” while also condemning any attempt to use his provocative rhetoric as a fundraising tool.

    Today, Obama decided to weigh in, as well, calling Fluke to praise and encourage her and to say her parents should be proud of her activism.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney said, “The president called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke because he wanted to offer his support, express his disappointment, that she was the subject of an inappropriate personal attack and thank her for exercising her rights as a citizen to speak out on public policy.”

    Carney said they spoke “for several minutes. It was a good conversation. Like a lot of people said the personal attacks directed her way are inappropriate. The fact that political discourse has become debased in many ways is bad enough. It’s worse when directed at a private citizen simply expressing her views on a matter of public policy.”
    *********************************************************************
    Amid his reaction though, Rush makes a great point. He says that he has been asked why he was so insulting to Fluke. He responded by making the point that his whole “free contraception” movement, on top of the “rich aren’t paying their fair share” movement is highly insulting to him. He likened it to a woman he didn’t know knocking on his door asking for money for
    contraception because she wanted to go and have sex with 3 guys that evening. Rush explains:

    “Where is it written that when all of a sudden if you want something and don’t have the money for it, somebody else has to pay for it. I think the whole notion of being insulted here – there are a lot of us insulted by this whole idea that is growing throughout the Obama administration, that the people who make this country work are somehow doing their fair share, not paying their fair share, that we have to be punished even more. Here’s the latest example of it.”
    *************************************************************************
    Dare I suggest that, somewhere along the line, this has gotten a bit — to borrow a word from Ron Paul — “silly“? Don’t misunderstand me: The contraception mandate is very, very serious. As conservatives have said from Day One, it represents an unconscionable assault on religious freedom. Similarly, sexual morality is a very serious issue. But this has become nothing more than a top-my-trauma contest, in which both sides attempt to make it sound as though they’ve been more seriously insulted than the other side.

    Let’s not forget who started all of this. Nobody ever threatened to take away anybody’s contraception. Nobody (except George Stephanopoulous) was even talking about contraception until the administration reiterated its mandate to religiously-affiliated employers to provide insurance coverage that covers contraception against their religious beliefs.
    The president knew what he was doing when he made the contraception mandate the first detail of Obamacare to be truly “felt.” He was willing to risk that it would rouse religious leaders because he knew it would rouse those who would perceive opposition to the mandate as a threat to consequence-free sex. It’s not — with or without the mandate, any two consenting adults are free to have sex and with contraception as much as they can afford – but don’t tell Sandra Fluke that. To her and to others like her, sex is apparently not consequence-free unless it’s also flat-out “free” for the folks having it.

    Typical costs:
    For patients not covered by health insurance, birth control pills typically cost $20 to $50 a month.
    [….]
    Additional costs:
    Birth control pills are available only with a prescription; getting one requires visiting a doctor for a pelvic exam and sexually transmitted disease tests. This can cost $35 to $200, or a copay of $10 to $30 for patients covered by health insurance.

    [[ Dunno what Private Enterprise doector would do a pelvic & tests for $35; this must be at some facility Supported by the Taxes of Hard-Working Americans ™. ]]

    =======================

    See post above. Low end cost for pills is $20/mo, ie $240/yr. Add the cost of a pelvic to get the prescription, that’s probably totalling over $3g/year.

    As for ‘pony up for an IUD’ — maybe people without bread should pony up for cake, so cost would not be a factor. I bet the low end costs here are also in Tax-Supported facilities.

    http://health.costhelper.com/iud.html
    For patients not covered by insurance, an IUD typically costs between $175 and $600 for the device, insertion and a follow-up appointment. Sometimes an appointment for a pelvic exam, where you discuss whether the IUD is right for you, is required before the insertion appointment can be made. This can cost an additional $35 to $200 — for a total of $210 to $800.

    If anyone should ever be called a ‘bimbo’, it’s not someone with this background as a serious advocate for women.

    http://www.law.georgetown.edu/pils/CurrentPILS.htm
    Sandra Fluke’s professional background in domestic violence and human trafficking began with Sanctuary for Families in New York City. There, she launched the agency’s pilot Program Evaluation Initiative. While at Sanctuary, she co-founded the New York Statewide Coalition for Fair Access to Family Court, which after a twenty-year stalemate, successfully advocated for legislation granting access to civil orders of protection for unmarried victims of domestic violence, including LGBTQ victims and teens. Sandra was also a member of the Manhattan Borough President’s Taskforce on Domestic Violence and numerous other New York City and New York State coalitions that successfully advocated for policy improvements impacting victims of domestic violence.

    As the 2010 recipient of the Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles Fran Kandel Public Interest Grant, she researched, wrote, and produced an instructional film on how to apply for a domestic violence restraining order in pro per. She has also interned with the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking; Polaris Project; Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County; Break the Cycle; the Domestic Violence Legal Empowerment and Appeals Project; NOW Legal Defense and Education Fund; Crime Victim and Sexual Assault Services; and the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County.

    Through Georgetown’s clinic programs, Sandra has proposed legislation based on fact-finding in Kenya regarding child trafficking for domestic work, and has represented victims of domestic violence in protection order cases. Sandra is the Development Editor of the Journal of Gender and the Law, and served as the President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and the Vice President of the Women’s Legal Alliance. In her first year, she also co-founded a campus committee addressing human trafficking. Cornell University awarded her a B. S. in Policy Analysis & Management, as well as Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies in 2003.

    You’re saying a pelvic costs $2760? What the F**K planet are you living on? Less than $100 is the cost in NYS.

    Stop the Bullsh!t.

  • Southern Born

    I’ve not had a chance to read all the comments, so perhaps this has already been mentioned.

    When couples go on a date, often they each pay half of the entertainment or for a meal. So why are the students at Ms. Fluke’s law school not “going Dutch” on birth control since BOTH are participating in the entertainment?

    It’s not men paying for sex. It’s paying their fair share. It is not fair if you are going to have recreational sex to expect the woman to pay the full price of birth control.

    Instead of the female paying $50 per month, the male could provide $25 which is probably the cost of one cheap date meal or entertainment.

    So what’s wrong with the old rule back when I was young. IF YOU PLAYED IT WAS UP TO YOU TO PAY. If you didn’t have the money to play, you either didn’t or knew there were consequences to pay later down the road.

    I agree with you, Basil. People can have all the entertainment and fun they want. But I should not have to pay for it.

    If she can afford to go to Georgetown, she can afford her own contraception, then again what can you say about a woman So ‘Sexually Active’ she needs more contraception than she can afford?

    then again this is all about dividing the GOP, its a political play we’ve seen play out through the debates. I’m sorry there are more pressing issues going on in the world than some girl getting a bit too much action. Whats wrong with sending him out to the drug store for some condoms, if he wants some by god he’ll go buy them.

    Then again, i remeber no such uproar on the left words like slut, bitch , the c word when it was used against Sarah Palin, Hillary, other prominent woman. This is all grandstanding on a grand scale.

    UPDATE: Jammie Wearing Fool finds evidence that Sandra Fluke, who was presented as a 23-year-old “coed,” is in fact 30 years old. She is an experienced left-wing activist, past president of “Law Students for Reproductive Justice” (!!!) and evidently enrolled at Georgetown University Law School with the specific purpose of challenging the Catholic university’s policy of denying insurance coverage for contraception.

    So apparently, this was all a phony political stunt. It’s a good thing Sandra Fluke didn’t dress up like a hooker and use a hidden camera, or she might have been denounced by Rolling Stone.

    We’re having an interesting little to-do over the word “bimbo”, I’d just like to put in my 2 cents because I’m against the misuse of words and intensely dislike inflated over-used words like “bitch” and “bastard”.

    My dictionary gives no origin for “bimbo” but classifies it as slang and offers the following meanings:

    bim·bo   [bim-boh]
    noun, plural -bos, -boes. Slang .
    1. a foolish, stupid, or inept person.
    2. a man or fellow, often a disreputable or contemptible one.
    3. an attractive but stupid young woman, especially one with loose morals.

    Notice that “person” and then “man or fellow” precede the meaning applied to women.

    Also notice that the meaning as applied to women, or to men for that matter, pretty much conveys the idea that Basil99 wants to get across: may be attractive, but stupid and with loose morals.

    So, in the end, I would say that Basil99 made pretty good use of a slang expression and we don’t have to get all up in arms about it.

  • moononpluto

    i try not to use the word bimbo or words like that, i prefer to usually just say, “they are the sort of person, that if they sent you a fax, they’d stick a stamp on it” or “the only person i know with an L and an R on the bottom of their shoes” but my personal favourite is “this is the person who phones you up on your home phone and when you answer, they go are you in”.

    Father Michael Pfleger mocks “entitled” and “white” Hillary at Trinity United Church. Video. – Lynn Sweet
    By Lynn Sweet on May 29, 2008 12:50 PM | 26 Comments
    WASHINGTON–Hat tip to Politico’s Ben Smith for the video. Last Sunday night, Chicago’s Father Michael Pfleger ended his sermon at Trinity United Church of Christ–the Obama family church–home pulpit for years for the Rev. Jeremiah Wright– saying, “sorry….don’t want to get you into any more trouble.”
    This comes after Pfleger–a crusader for Chicago’s down and out–who has known Barack Obama since his days as a community organizer–just wrapped up mocking Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) and may have sensed he strayed into trouble for his friend Obama.
    Of Clinton, Pfleger said, pretending to be speaking in her voice, “I’m white, I’m entitled, there’s a black man stealing my show.”
    Pfleger was introduced by Trinity pastor Rev. Otis Moss III

    Here’s a “hmmmmm”:
    GOP Powerbrokers Slow To Back Presidential Hopefuls
    …The Associated Press has polled 106 of the 117 so-called superdelegates — members of the Republican National Committee who will automatically attend the party’s national convention this summer and can support any candidate for president they choose, regardless of what happens in the primaries….
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/03/gop-powerbrokers-slow-to-back-presidential-hopefuls/

    Dems did it behind closed doors. Guess Rethugs are not repeating THAT mistake, for the general public is getting some warning here of what could happen.

  • Mrs. Smith

    The Bimbos in the White House were Gob-Smacked by the last legitimately elected president. But main stream media oohed and aahd over Obama’s rapier like discourse recording for posterity a ham handed put down by the CIC to an out spoken college student.
    ___________________

    Meanwhile, our discerning friends in Canada send us this message:

    Our Bill tucks it to Obama in a speech leaving Obama…hmmm SPEECHLESS!

    Do not think for a moment that former U.S. president Bill Clinton has forgotten the messy campaign four years ago that put Barack Obama in the White House and left his wife with a supporting role.

    It would seem the most popular Democrat in the United States believes not only that revenge is best served cold, but that it is also best served subtly yet pointedly.

    In using a speech earlier this week at an energy conference near Washington to state the Keystone XL pipeline could be quickly resurrected with a minor route change, Clinton left Obama looking like Mr. Lonely, his only friends being a bunch of well-heeled Hollywood eco-loons who are using him like a cheap extra.

    He was making him look even more isolated.

    When the speaker causing him grief is not only a former two-term Democratic president but also the husband of the most powerful person in the Obama administration, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, there is no such thing as unintended consequences.

    Every word of his speech would have been plotted.

    So when Clinton laid out a plan this week on how he could see Obama changing his mind and approving the controversial pipeline linking the oilsands to the refineries in Texas, it pushed Obama into a very uncomfortable corner.

    All TransCanada had to do in its original application was to submit a plan that would take the pipeline around the delicate Sandhills aquifer in Nebraska, said Clinton, and the deal would have been done like dinner. Even Obama would have to agree, Clinton speculated.

    At this point, Obama was no doubt squirming. He was being set up.

    It was obviously no coincidence, as well, that Clinton’s speech in Washington came exactly a day after leading Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Americans “deserve” the Canadian oil that Keystone would deliver.

    “Deserve” may be too strong a word, but we got his drift.

    And the timing was perfect. With less than 24 hours, the leading Republican and the most prominent Democrat voice in America had upped the pressure on the president to pull a 180 on the Keystone XL.

    Will he continue to hold off until after the election?

    We’re taking bets.

    ‘Subtly’ indeed! WJC framed the whole proposal as a criticism not of Obama, but as a criticism of the oil company in poorly mapping out the route.

    Just one more example of the classy ‘kiss of death’ style. Reminds me of when HRC loudly complained in 2009 that the rising debt was hampering our ability to shape our own destiny and to act in our own best interests abroad. The shot was aimed at the rising debt, but the target was Obama and everyone saw that, even the LSM!

    The “must see” video was excellent. Some of the comments by viewers are typically stupid.

    I agree as well. As for Rush, being the ignorant idiot that he is should not her have called a “slut”, I understand from NOW that the correct term is a “whore”. Apparently
    the left has very short memories.

    “The president of the National Organization for Women (NOW) may have said it is wrong for anyone to call a woman a “whore,” but the head of the California NOW affiliate says Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman is one, FOXNews.com reported Friday.

    California NOW President Parry Bellasalma told the TPM blog on Thursday that the description of the Republican candidate for governor of California is accurate.

  • nomobama

    Moononpluto provided information on the fraud that is Sandra Fluke. Instead of taking umption on her for her now evident collusion with the Obama campaign, people want to go after Rush Limbaugh for using words that hurt their sensibilities.

    I have to wonder about some people who are crying about the word bimbo. If married, I bet you that if they found out that some female was messing around with their hubby, the terms that they would use to describe the other woman would br similar or worse!

  • jeswezey

    “To break the law in such a manner is treasonable, and that IS a BIG problem, as big as a problem can ever be.”
    ====

    Remember that the law is broken at two levels of unequal seriousness:

    (i) the act itself, i.e. not being born in the US, which, it can be argued, is a moot point now that O has been elected, and as a fetus he had no control over where he was born anyway. Furthermore, arguments could be made about what a ‘natural born’ citizen is – with an American mother, O was a US citizen at birth no matter where he was born, and so forth.

    (ii) the fact of hiding or falsifying his birth certificate. This is the kind of criminal offense for which Nixon and Clinton were impeached. Nixon covered up criminal activities, Clinton covered up facts of his private life that some people were concerned about. But Obama, if he had his birth certificate falsified, engaged in criminal activity himself, not to mention the years and money he spent trying to cover it up.

    Reason (ii), if proven, could land O in prison and people would overlook reason (i).

    I’d like to add, I don’t think a woman should be called a whore or slut, however since the left seems to be so selectively outraged, they really need to STFU unless the same rules applies to everyone. And its pretty obvious, there’s one set of rules for the left and anthother for anyone who disagrees with them (palin) or are in their way (hillary in 2008).

    Quite honestly, this is not a contraceptions issues, no one is banning it or stopping anyone from using it, what I don’t want is to force nonprofit religious institutions from being froced to pay for it (even indirectly)when its against that religon’s conscience, nor do I want to pay for it for someonw else! they can buy as much as they want, just don’t make me pay for it via my premiums!

    Obama’s self-serving pimping for Fluke in order to ingratiate himself to women for their vote in November.
    ______________________

    Amazing this is an AP article:

    Obama joins in assailing Rush Limbaugh slur of student

    “Obama reached Fluke by phone as she was waiting to go on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

    “He’s really a very a kind man,” Fluke later told The Associated Press. “He just called to express concern for me and to make sure I was OK and to say that he supported me and to thank me for speaking out about something that’s so important to so many women.”

    As for Limbaugh’s remarks, Fluke said, “I just thought that they were really outside the bounds of civil discourse.”

    By calling Fluke and injecting himself into the Limbaugh controversy, Obama sent a message to more than one student. He was reaching out to young voters and women — groups whose support he needs in this re-election year. And he was underscoring that the White House, despite bungling its rollout of the birth control policy, sees it as a winning issue and welcomes Obama’s name next to it.”

    that being said, I was a law student and my girlfriend’s contraception cost about $5.00
    a pack.

    The point is Limbaugh is just a pawn on the larger chessboard… with Obama’s mantra, “Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste” is just more theater played out in Obama Land for the gullible dupes, the same nut jobs supporting OWS for their Vote.

    Limbaugh is a blowhard; always has been, always will be. That said, Tim is absolutely correct. There is one set of standards for the GD leftists and one for everyone else and the hypocracy is the galling aspect of this bullshit. And yes, the point is not pro- anti- contraception, I mean you’d have to be mighty hard hard core extreme to oppose contraception, which is your right as it applies to your acts and conscience. The point is making ME pay for YOUR contraceptives. Unless you’re screwing me, don’t ask me to pay for it.

    My dictionary gives no origin for “bimbo” but classifies it as slang and offers the following meanings:

    2. a man or fellow, often a disreputable or contemptible one.

    Do you have the same objection to an insurance company providing free vaccinations? If it is only contraception that you object to — then it IS a contraception issue. (And it is NOT at ‘your expense’, since contraception saves the cost of pregnancy etc; the results are positive or cost-neutral.)

    About the bimbo eruptions, thanks for all the support I got from nomobama, jezwezy and others.

And thanks for the definition Jezwezy and yes that’s exactly what I meant. In light of moononpluto’s post about the 30 year old student being hand picked to go after Catholics it all falls into place, no? If the shoe fits.

  • Mrs. Smith

    Danger Will Robinson! (tim)

    The troll will prevent you from seeing the trees from the forest if you choose to engage-

    Remember this- the reason Obama made the demand on Catholic services to fund contraception in the first place is to have the Catholic Church BOW to the mandated declaration in ObamaCare. The Church will NEVER acquiesce to Obama’s demand. Possibly forcing the Church to disband and close all it’s services namely provided to adoption agencies, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, battered women shelters, undercutting billions of dollars otherwise going to Medi-Care and Medi-Caid, through Catholic run Hospitals, Education ie.. closing parochial schools all for furthering his BIGGER agenda… overwhelming municipal and state governments into total collapse and chaos.

    If you never understood what Triangulation IS- Obama’s attempt of forcing Church funded ‘contraception’ on the Catholic Church, in this instance, is the trigger to World Wide chaos not only in our country but the World.

    WHEN, NOT IF, the Church shuts down all the services it currently provides- Obama will have exactly what he has been waiting for in America. Domination of the American people under his hand using marshal law as the tool securing his seat in the WH as the Dictator in Chief indefinitely.

    Thank you Mrs. Smith. And I agree with you. OTurd is just that, an OTurd.

  • turndownobama

    Here is part of the testimony that Sandra gave about the effects of the ‘no contraceptives’ policies. ‘The Pill’ is not just about contraception: it also is used even by women who are not sexually active, to treat serious hormonal problems. Exceptions should be made, but in practice are not.

    http://www.whatthefolly.com/2012/02/23/transcript-sandra-fluke-testifies-on-why-women-should-be-allowed-access-to-contraception-and-reproductive-health-care/

    “In the worst cases, women who need these medications for other medical conditions suffer very dire consequences.

    “A friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome, and she has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by Georgetown’s insurance because it’s not intended to prevent pregnancy.
    “Unfortunately, under many religious institutions and insurance plans, it wouldn’t be. There would be no exception for other medical needs. And under Sen. Blunt’s amendment, Sen. Rubio’s bill or Rep. Fortenberry’s bill there’s no requirement that such an exception be made for these medical needs.
    “When this exception does exist, these exceptions don’t accomplish their well-intended goals because when you let university administrators or other employers rather than women and their doctors dictate whose medical needs are legitimate and whose are not, women’s health takes a back seat to a bureaucracy focused on policing her body.
    “In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were interrogated by insurance representatives and university medical staff about why they needed prescription and whether they were lying about their symptoms.
    “For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, she never got the insurance company to cover her prescription. Despite verifications of her illness from her doctor, her claim was denied repeatedly on the assumption that she really wanted birth control to prevent pregnancy. She’s gay. So clearly polycystic ovarian syndrome was a much more urgent concern than accidental pregnancy for her.
    “After months paying over $100 out-of-pocket, she just couldn’t afford her medication anymore, and she had to stop taking it.
    “I learned about all of this when I walked out of a test and got a message from her that in the middle of the night in her final exam period she’d been in the emergency room. She’d been there all night in just terrible, excruciating pain. She wrote to me, ‘It was so painful I’d woke up thinking I’ve been shot.’
    “Without her taking the birth control, a massive cyst the size of a tennis ball had grown on her ovary. She had to have surgery to remove her entire ovary as a result.
    “On the morning I was originally scheduled to give this testimony, she was sitting in a doctor’s office, trying to cope with the consequences of this medical catastrophe.
    “Since last year’s surgery, she’s been experiencing night sweats and weight gain and other symptoms of early menopause as a result of the removal of her ovary. She’s 32-years-old.
    “As she put it, ‘If my body indeed does enter early menopause, no fertility specialist in the world will be able to help me have my own children. I will have no choice at giving my mother her desperately desired grandbabies simply because the insurance policy that I paid for, totally unsubsidized by my school, wouldn’t cover my prescription for birth control when I needed it.’
    “Now, in addition to potentially facing the health complications that come with having menopause at such an early age – increased risk of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis – she may never be able to conceive a child.
    “Some may say that my friend’s tragic story is rare. It’s not. I wish it were
    “One woman told us doctors believe she has endometriosis, but that can’t be proven without surgery. So the insurance has not been willing to cover her medication – the contraception she needs to treat her endometriosis.
    “Recently, another woman told me that she also has polycystic ovarian syndrome and she’s struggling to pay for her medication and is terrified to not have access to it.
    “Due to the barriers erected by Georgetown’s policy, she hasn’t been reimbursed for her medications since last August.
    “I sincerely pray that we don’t have to wait until she loses an ovary or is diagnosed with cancer before her needs and the needs of all of these women are taken seriously.

  • nomobama

    I’ll put it this way. Many on the left are the biggest, most pompous weasels and crybabies. They like to talk compromise, but I guess their definition of compromise is different than mine since compromise means one must come to their viewpoint in totality. They are adept at working the system incrementally, gaining a small win here, and another there until presto!, they got exactly what they wanted in the first place. Then they’re off to instigate another battle since they are very negative people who never really seem to be satisfied with anything other than their ability to instigate problems. They are also relentless, and compromise is just another tool in their toolbag. Personally, I believe they are more of a civil threat in this country than any other political group.

    Shadowfax, I agree with you. Equality without pedestals.

    I really am not interested in getting angry; imho, it is time to get even and there is no time to waste. Anger was so 2007. And just as an aside, I parted ways with the site that the contrarian fairy is promoting ages ago and for good reason. If you are so in love with another site, go there. Stay there. Don’t let the door…..

    The discourse here has gotten so far off base because of one, and sometimes two, posters.Those who attempt to have a reasoned discourse and to share useful information are battered by those who only want to cause trouble here. That is so sophomoric.

    Words, just words. Limbaugh has the RIGHT to use words, just as everyone else. He uses a lot of his words to get attention and to bring national attention to some problems (and yes he is a blowhard, sue me Limbaugh for using that word)that would otherwise not be known to those who do not work at seeking out the truth. If the advocate, who claims herself as a student at age 30????, has a legal problem with Limbaugh’s use of words, then by king George she can SUE him, after all she is a lawyer. And, as my grandmother used to say, “Fools names, like fools faces are often seen in public places.” The girl was a Fool; and likely a tool. And with such a fine education, she should have known what would come her way, or did she want to provocate chaos?

  • turndownobama

    Some good sense at Huff Po, from Sandy Goodman:

    But we Democrats have got to draft [Hillary] to run against Obama, hoping that maybe if enough of us can persuade her that she’s needed to save the country — and put up enough money for her to win — she’ll change her mind. I know it’s a very long shot — and almost too much to ask of a politician who’s gone through years of hell. But the alternatives, four more years of Obama, or one of the Republican lunatics or plutocrats currently in the picture, are simply unacceptable.

    I can handle myself pretty well with men. Having 4 sons and a husband (#5), with me in the minority in our house-hold. My late husband was a very generous man. Good with our children and a good provider- we lacked for nothing. A truly Man’s Man.. fearless and always enthused to undertake the impossible. After being engaged twice almost a third time… I always cancelled the wedding plans out of fear of making a mistake.. until the right man came along. I haven’t met anyone since, that can compare- My sons have grown into good husbands, good providers and excellent fathers to my grandchildren. I am proud of all of them. They all have done well.

    What Goodman at Huff Po didn’t mention, is that there is a challenger to Obama already: http://www.darcy2012.com

    Hillary can’t begin the challenge. But if Darcy Richardson damages Obama (DR has compared himself to Eugene McCarthy in 1968 who made LBJ withdraw), then there would be a good chance she might accept a draft.

Testifying before a congressional panel about birth control in context of the developing world and the need to treat it as basic women’s health care, she said that it saves women’s lives. It makes women and babies healthier. It saves communities, governments and families lot of money. And it reduces abortion.

    I would welcome you there, but I do not let that sh!t get through that I see on my newsfeed. It has been a real lesson in what the left loons are all about to see their posts and read their comments.
    Having a need to do something postive, I took advice of one on tv to do something postive like teach history, family history. Since I started this, the whole gets upset when politics is discussed so I am timid about putting political stuff on there, at least outright. I try to provide life lessons in researching, critical thinking skills, and knowing your roots so you can determine where you want your family to go. I post photos and memories,do family research for many of them to post there so the young ones will have something to hold onto, hopefully.
    Like yesterday, when the tornadoes came through I posted photos of the tornadoes and everyone became cohesive in supporting any of them that had damage. There was one nice home that had been destroyed in the April 2011 tornado and was being rebuilt; it got blown away again. Btw the weather girl went for shelter leaving her audience to fend for themselves – must have been a BO supporter, lol. Just like in olden times, even though they may not have known each other, the community coalesced to help. I hope this tool builds comraderie that will be displayed if things get as bad as I predict they might. At least, I think I am doing something positive for my fellow man.

    Daylight; The story of Obama and Israel.

    Pro-Israeli groups in the United States are now forming a SuperPac for the upcoming 2012 presidential election with a clear goal of reminding Jewish Americans of the consistent record of disrespect of Israel the Obama administration has put on display time and again. This campaign has begun with a 30-minute film outlining the reality of that disrespect against Jews by Barack Obama, a well as a series advertising on billboards and print media. These ads not only take to task President Obama, but also such institutions as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for its ”funding bigotry and anti-Israel extremism.”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-8oBzNiGaU&feature=player_embedded

    The list of gaffes, be they intentional or not, indicate at best an American president ignorant of Middle East reality. At worst – a president who is quite aware of the dangers he now places Israel and all other nations in the region via positions and policies that have only worsened Middle East stability that now threatens millions of lives.

    Two years ago during his first visit to the Obama White House, Prime Minister Netanyahu was made to enter from the back of the White House and wait in a small side room for President Obama’s arrival. There was not respectful greeting, no State dinner – the event was hardly mentioned by White House media operations. When Obama did arrive, he sat down briefly, dropped a list of 13 demands he had of Israel and then the president left Netanyahu – indicating he was going to have dinner. The Israeli Prime Minister was soon after escorted out of the back entrance of the White House.

    Only when Barack Obama’s arrogance and anti-Israeli bias began to be more widely known to Jewish American voters did the Obama administration attempt to reconcile – at least on the surface, the frosty relations between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu. That attempt was cut short after Obama indicated his desire to see Israel return to its 1967 borders – a statement that sent shockwaves throughout the world and emboldened Muslim radicals in the Middle East to make yet more demands of the tiny Israeli nation. In essence – it appears President Obama was telling the Jewish nation it no longer had a trustworthy friend and ally in the United States.

    It would now appear there are powerful forces aligning against Barack Obama’s formidable re-election campaign – the 2012 War for America has indeed begun…

Those horses are magnificent and they seem well-cared for. Beautiful site to see fully armor-clad guys on powerful steeds charging at one another.
    ____________

    Basil, I’ve watched it a couple of times- The thing is, the fellows signed up for the $100,000 prize money- a whole different ball game from real horseman who love the horses more in the vein of the new HBO series, LUCK.

    That series I really LOVE. Dustin Hoffman is playing a newly released convict out on probation with a vendetta against the people who in a struggle for power sent him to prison to get him out of the way. The actors are perfectly cast. Joan Van Allen as Hoffman’s future love interest, Dennis Farina as Hoffman’s wing man, Richard Kind as a jockey’s agent.

    Hoffman, while in prison plotted and planned his revenge. His intent is to bring casino gambling to the Hialeah RaceTrack and hang, metaphorically, the mobsters that put him away.. He’s purchased an Irish Thoroughbred for $2M dollars. The horse that won the fictional ‘Goff Millions Stake Race’ in Ireland the year before. He’s shipped the horse to Fla and also unbeknown to the horse trainer, had him imported from Peru as an unknown, untouched and untainted by his enemies hands.

    My experience with the Track came when working with my Vet side by side @ 4:30 am 3 days a wk on the track for 6 mos learning all I could about healing and reconditioning horses that would otherwise go to the Killer or left lame and unwanted. We developed a big following turning out former flat racers into serious competition jumpers for clients who couldn’t afford spending $35,000 to $50,000 on made horses for the Show Ring.

    Hoffman and the cast are the main plot in the series but the horses and their mgmt sit equally in importance as Hoffman is seen giving his heart to his horse, ‘Pint of Plain’ after the horse is injured during his first race. A horse in front of him losing a shoe that is flying through the air cutting PP’s hock midway thru the race. The horse regroups and wins the race in spite of the injury by at least 5 lengths. Hoffman goes back to the barn with deep concern for the horse’s welfare. He sleeps in a chair in his $10K Armani suit in front of the horse’s stall until the horse nudges him awake as if to say, he’s feeling better.

    I was impressed seeing Hoffman’s moves were as they should be when approaching a horse.. silent, slow and soft approaching him from the side. I thought to myself, he’s going to want to own that horse now that PP has won his heart.

    Admin, I really hope you write a new piece on sheriff Arpaio’s investigation. This should have been a media BLOWOUT! It is really beyond me how this is not being taken seriously now! I mean when you think the MSM can’t get any lower….
    And those who don’t think that the biggest crime in US history is important?!?? Is document forgery not a crime if the President is the one committing the crime?

    And I really believe Andrew Breitbart was getting ready to assist in getting this story out there, I think when he said a few days ago, just wait and see what will happen on March 1st, that he was referring to this. As he met with Arpaio the day before…

    And sadly ironic, his friend Matt Drudge did, I think, the opposite of what Andrew would have wanted, he kept Andrew at the top of his drudgereport site INSTEAD of this birth certificate fraud case. Maybe even the tapes AB has was to underscore what Arpaio has detected…?! Inadvertently, Andrew, by his death, was what kept the big story he wanted to be on everybody’s lips, from getting there…

    I hope this all comes crashing down…. as we all said when BO was elected in 08, the bigger they are, the harder the fall. Get ready Obama for a rocky ride ahead!

There was no secret about her age and background. It’s her history as an advocate for women’s issues (like Hillary at a similar age) that got her invited to speak to Congress in the first place.

    Washington, Feb 29 –
    [….]

    Also weighing in on the controversy Tuesday was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In testimony before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, the nation’s top diplomat encouraged Catholics opposed to birth control on doctrinal grounds to embrace it for practical reasons.
    “I know that it is a very controversial issue,” Clinton told lawmakers, “but numerous studies have shown that the incidence of abortion decreases when women have access to contraception.”

He said that it depends on who you are listening to; and said you are not listening to Rush Limbaugh are you. I said, I am listening to Obama and you can bet that whatever he says, a few minutes later he would be doing the opposite. He asked me what did I oppose Obama on, and I started listing the debt, the deficit, the lies, the…the….the. He said they did not want to lose me as a Democrat. I said I was never a Democrat, I was an Independent. As he hung up he said they would be seeing me in the whitehouse for the next four years.

    For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.

    I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone’s bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.

    My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

    awwwh…O’s propoganda film might not be ready for his second coming…

    ‘Zero Dark Thirty’: Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama Bin Laden Movie Running Into More Trouble

    “Zero Dark Thirty,” Kathryn Bigelow’s movie on Navy’s SEAL Team 6’s hunt for, and killing of, Osama Bin Laden has run into more drama — and major production hasn’t even started.

    After congressional republicans voiced concerns that the White House was leaking classified information to Bigelow and her team (a suggestion the administration summarily dismissed) and Sony postponed the film’s release until after the 2012 election, the “Hurt Locker” director may have thought she was in the clear.

    But new turmoil in India has further complicated filming as right-wing Hindu activists protested the production on Friday. AFP reports that members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or VHP, disrupted shooting in the north India city of Chandigarh and demanded that any representations of Pakistan on Indian soil be taken down.

    A production company claimed it was merely making “establishing” shots and that the Abbottabad home in which bin Laden was killed would be recreated in Jordan.

    The movie will star Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramirez and Mark Strong. Chris Pratt and Jason Clarke were also original members of the cast.

    In development for years and written by Mark Boal (who also won an Oscar for “The Hurt Locker”) film had to retool after Bin Laden was killed by the Navy’s SEAL Team 6 early in 2011.

    “The attempt to kill Bin laden in the Tora Bora mountains in 2001 was no longer as relevant a story as what had just happened,” Edgerton told Indiewire last year, “But then what had just happened was so fresh and as we all know, history often needs time and perspective to kind of settle in everybody’s minds, you can’t just go and start shooting the movie in the next month and assume that you’re going to get everything right and have all of the information. So the project was put on hold for a while while Mark and Kathryn kind of gathered information.”

    The movie’s working title, “Zero Dark Thirty,” is military slang for an early starting time, as Deadline reported.

    That title, however, may cause another headache for Bigelow and Boal, as Slashfilm reports it is already being used by director Paul Solet, who is developing a sort of military zombie movie.

    Thanks for stating your opinion of Hillary so clearly.

  • turndownobama

    Okay, Tim, I looked up Basil’s cite. There is nothing about China. There is nothing about a ‘one child rule’ or about hunting down women or any of those other silly things you mentioned. The suggestion is to ALLOW women access to contraceptives if they WANT them.

    Recently I saw a claim that about half the pregnancies in the US were unwanted/unplanned. So there’s a lot of slack to be taken up just by allowing women to make their own contraceptive choices without hassle.

    Note in the article that even a global warming denier, Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment, admits that “It is the case that less people means less carbon emissions”.


    During a discussion series on Monday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., speaker and activist Kavita Ramdas argued that contraceptives should be part of a strategy to save the planet, calling lower birth rates a “common sense” part of a climate-change reduction strategy.
    [….]
    Ramdas told The Daily Caller that the research shows “empowering women to time their pregnancies” and avoid unwanted births would reduce carbon emissions between 8 to 15 percent globally.

    “It is common sense that when women are able to plan their pregnancies, populations grow more slowly and as a result so do greenhouse gas emissions,” she explained. “Providing access to contraception and preventative health should be one of the many effective strategies used to fight climate change.”

    Ramdas is also executive director of the Program on Social Entrepreneurship at Stanford University.

    Global warming activists argue increasing greenhouse gas emissions, partly resulting from unsustainable population growth, is resulting in “environmental devastation” such as frequent severe weather events and rising sea levels.

    The United States and other countries with high levels of emissions, Ramdas told TheDC, have the potential to make the biggest impact by making contraception more accessible. She said every child in America absorbs, on average, 40 percent more of the earth’s resources than children in other countries.
    [….]
    Ramdas later told TheDC, however, that her contraception advocacy isn’t about population control, but rather supporting a woman’s right to decide when to get pregnant. The two causes, she insisted, just happened to complement one another.
    [….]
    “It’s about the facts,” said Barroso. “We’ve always known that there are millions of women — especially the young women — who want to delay or avoid their next pregnancy but do not have access to family planning information and services.”

    “Recent research shows that meeting this need, and thereby slowing population growth, could reduce carbon emissions by 16 to 29 percent of the emission reductions necessary to avoid dangerous climate change.”

  • The birth control pseudo-issue is just another tool to divide the country with and that has been Obama’s goal from the very beginning (because divided we fall).

    Sandra Fluke is a lubed up political operative, who no doubt will be given a political appointment to reward her and of course divide the spectators.

    I don’t understand why Rush took the bait; surely he knows how the passive-aggressive game works, and he gave them a walkover on this one. He’s allowed the Dems to portray the GOP as sore losers in the sexual revolution. His apology is a good one, but a little late – I’ve already gotten two faux-outraged fundraising letters from Debbie Wasserman Schulz and one from Democrats.com. They are making hay with it.

    Has anyone noticed the similarities between Bush’s AWOL from National Guard story and the birth certificate story? Both worth investigating, but ignored by the lapdog media. So if you’re playing the Bush with a tan drinking game, have another shot, lol.

    I respectfully also disagree with Hillary on the contraception issue, but understand she
    has to follow the party line. I just wish she and Bill would not go out of there wat to prop
    Obama. Bill, at least, is free to make statements in contrast with the administration as
    he did a few days ago on the pipeline issue. I honestly believe Bill will always dislike
    Barry for painting him as a racist. Hillary, on the other hand, seems to have put aside
    her differences with O and I think she supports most of his agenda. I guess that is the deal she had to make to allow herself to have some mitigating impact on some of O”s
    more radical agenda which we will see in his 2nd term.

    ===========================

    Hillary has been advocating for women, for contraception, and for abortion for decades before Obama was even heard of, and before she was even Bill’s wife, back when she was doing the same sort of thing that Fluke has been doing. This mandate was in Hillarycare. If that’s part of the Democratic party line, it’s because she and Bill made it so. Obama pretends to support reproductive rights because he has to follow HER party line.

    Do you think she would have different standards for poor women elsewhere? As for the current debate about Catholic schools etc, I’ve posted a quote from her testimony at a budget committee hearing on that subject: very strong, saying Catholics should accept birth control as preventing abortions!

    http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20120303/EDIT01/303030050/Enquirer-Endorsement-Romney-deserves-Ohio-s-support

    Republican voters can no longer ignore the obvious: There is only one GOP candidate for president who has the temperament, character and discipline to lead the nation. One candidate with the business experience and management skills befitting a chief executive. One candidate who can appeal to a broad enough spectrum of voters to win in November. That candidate is Mitt Romney.

    We endorse him wholeheartedly in Tuesday’s Ohio primary. Romney is best suited to represent the GOP mainstream, advance a thoughtful conservative agenda, offer a strong alternative to President Obama and lead the nation into a new era of progress if elected this fall.
    For the good of the country as well as their party, Republicans should not reject their most electable candidate. Romney talks conservative, and his track record backs it up. Among his attributes:

    • In the private sector, he helped rescue companies and hone their business practices, often saving and creating jobs.

    • He rescued the 2002 Olympics from financial disarray in the wake of 9/11, bringing the games stability and renewed esteem.

    • As governor of Massachusetts, he enjoyed remarkable success in a state dominated by Democrats, yet displayed the fiscal discipline to cut taxes while wiping out a $3 billion deficit.

    • As a manager, he’s focused on problem-solving and bringing people together – skills that are essential in the Oval Office.

    • He has stayed cool amid constant political attacks, displaying the stability and calm we expect in a president.

    • His demeanor as a candidate has been remarkably free of the ego and hubris that have derailed so many others.

    What more do Republican voters want? The mystery is why so many have managed to ignore what should be excruciatingly apparent: Romney has the management, leadership and political tools to do the job.

    And the election this year is all about jobs. It is about building a vibrant economy. It is about making government work more effectively. It is not about social crusades, old resentments and hardened hyper-partisan stances.

    Consider the GOP alternatives to Romney:

    Newt Gingrich exists in a rhetorical ionosphere and carries more baggage than a fleet of Greyhound buses.
    Ron Paul, bless him, is more focused on advancing his libertarian views and elevating the national debate than in becoming president.
    Then there’s Rick Santorum. The last-standing in a series of “anybody-but-Mitt” frontrunners has been exposed in recent days for views that may be heartfelt but miss the mainstream by a mile.

    For example: He has helped turn a religious freedom issue into an argument over contraception that’s a loser politically and a potential detriment to Americans’ quality of life. He has blithely dismissed the importance of a college education as a gateway to a better life. He has trashed the honored notion, advanced by John F. Kennedy, of a thoughtful separation between personal religious beliefs and public-policy actions.

    Santorum doesn’t seem to know where the line must be drawn. He doesn’t seem to know what the Constitution requires. He’s simply not prepared for this office.

    Mitt Romney outclasses his rivals, and Ohio voters appear to be getting the message. As of Friday, Romney had turned a double-digit deficit vs. Santorum into a virtual tie in some opinion polls.

    Always a key battleground state, Ohio is especially important in 2012 as a microcosm of the nation’s economic struggle and rebound. Its issues – job growth, a healthy business climate, creative solutions to fund public needs – are right in Romney’s wheelhouse.
    This is Mitt Romney’s time. And this is the place.

    Ohioans have the chance Tuesday to reset the nation’s political discourse and help America refocus on rational, results-oriented policies. They should make the most of it. They should support Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination.

    Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist – The Daily Beast
    …Chris Matthews’s sickening misogyny was made famous in 2008, when he obsessively tore down Hillary Clinton for standing between Barack Obama and the presidency, something that Matthews could not abide. Over the years he has referred to the former first lady, senator and presidential candidate and current secretary of state as a “she-devil,” “Nurse Ratched,” and “Madame Defarge.” Matthews has also called Clinton “witchy,” “anti-male,” and “uppity” and once claimed she won her Senate seat only because her “husband messed around.” He asked a guest if “being surrounded by women” makes “a case for commander in chief—or does it make a case against it?” At some point Matthews was shamed into sort of half apologizing to Clinton, but then just picked up again with his sexist ramblings…[Bill Maher] recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job….

    Just on now here- Amazing- at the forefront of Gingrich’s mind is the ability to apply a stunning comparison/omission between the candidates and/or Obama with his opinion of what is moraly correct or is good common sense. It’s his critical thinking skills that has me in his corner and the fact there’s no denying, he’s an all time American Patriot.

    SB- did you notice what Newt said about Romney and the contraception issue when he was governor of MA? Newt let it be known Romney and his evil twin Obama both tried forcing the Catholic Church to pay for contraception through their insurance coverage.

    Go ahead and hide your head in the sand, Romney’s policies are not the mirror image of Obama’s.
    But please don’t insult our intelligence promoting Romney as some sort of white knight running to save America citizens.

    The most notable difference between Romney and Obama is Romney is not a Muslim and his wife has blond hair.

    Gingrich Slams Media on Limbaugh Focus

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich accused “the elite media” of negligence for focusing on the contraception controversy that Rush Limbaugh Limbaugh escalated last week instead of reporting on the issues relevant to the campaign.

    “I am astonished at the desperation of the elite media to avoid rising gas prices, to avoid the president’s apology to religious fanatics in Afghanistan, to avoid a trillion-dollar deficit, to avoid the longest period of unemployment since the Great Depression, and to suddenly decide that Rush Limbaugh is the great national crisis of the week,” the former House speaker said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

    The controversy erupted after Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke testified before Congress to lobby for the availability of birth control. Limbaugh, who referred to the woman as a “slut” while commenting on the issue during his radio show, apologized for his comments on Saturday.

    Gingrich said he is glad that the conservative radio commentator apologized but said there is no debate about access to contraception.

    “This is the most fundamental assault on religious liberty in American history,” he said, referring to President Barack Obama’s new requirement that insurance companies provide coverage for contraception for employees even at Catholic institutions that object to birth control. “It’s not about access to contraception. It is a question about whether or not a religiously affiliated institution should be coerced by the federal government.”

    When host David Gregory asked Gingrich about winning Georgia on Super Tuesday, Gingrich shrugged and said, “It is the biggest state in terms of delegates. It’s very hard for one of the major candidates to not carry their own state and continue to move forward.”

    Romney wins big in Washington Caucus. I think the GOP race is about to end on Tuesday.

    4 times as many turned out in Wa than in 2008.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/03/04/romney-wins-wa-caucus-santorum-falls-to-third/

    Mitt Romney won the Washington caucus yesterday, as polls indicated in the last couple of days, but by a wider margin than expected. Also unexpected was the second-place finisher:

    Mitt Romney won the Republican caucuses in Washington state, according to unofficial results early Sunday, giving the former Massachusetts governor a shot in the arm heading into Super Tuesday contests.

    With 99% of the vote in, Romney had 38%. Texas Rep. Ron Paul had 25% and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had 24%. They were trailed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 10%.

    At stake in the contest are 40 delegates.

    “We’re in a good second place, but the good news is we’re doing very, very well in getting delegates,” Paul told supporters in Seattle, when about half of the vote had been counted. “The enthusiasm for the cause of liberty continues to grow exponentially.”

    Actually what was at stake was zero delegates. The delegates get assigned at the state convention, and the preference poll doesn’t bind the state convention to any outcome. The caucus does provide some bragging rights and momentum heading into Super Tuesday, though, and Romney will be able to brag both about the win and the turnout, which was much higher than in 2008, when only 12,400 voters attended. Nearly four times that number caucused yesterday, which means that Romney can rebut the charge that he only wins contests with depressed turnouts. In fact, Romney won more votes yesterday (19,111) than were cast in total in 2008.

    For that matter, so did Ron Paul, who engineered a surprise second-place finish over Rick Santorum, with 12,594 votes. Santorum won 500 fewer votes, and comes in lower than second place for the first time in a month. Santorum campaigned in Washington this week, and the finish will create even more doubt in Super Tuesday states about his continued viability.

    I’d normally predict that the party leadership would consider throwing in with Romney at this point to hasten the conclusion of the competitive part of the primary, but House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has already done so:

    “Mitt Romney is the only candidate who has a pro-growth, pro-jobs plan for the future,” Cantor said on NBC’s Meet the Press. He added: “[Romney] will best be able to lead this economy back to a growth mode.”

    Throughout his interview, Cantor attempted to focus on the economy, and praised Romney as being the only candidate to put forth a “bold plan” to increase jobs and reduce regulatory red tape.

    Cantor represents Virginia, which is one of 10 states voting on Super Tuesday, March 6. While Cantor said he expects Romney to take all of Virginia’s delegates, only Romney and Rep. Ron Paul are on the ballot there.

    Cantor’s endorsement could have been tied to the Virginia primary, but Romney and Paul are the only two on that ballot, and Romney is already expected to win by a wide margin. This sounds more like a message intended for those outside of Virginia and for the rest of the Super Tuesday states. Don’t be surprised if other senior GOP figures in leadership follow suit.

    I guess it is a question of whether the laws of the land apply to everyone. However, in the past, we exempted religious groups (Catholics and Others I presume), from paying some forms of Taxes.

    The rich and all others should pay taxes. The health insurance people should provide birth control to all, regardless of your religious beliefs. As they say in Austrailia, If you don’t like our rules, go some where else.

    I think I spoke about Brazil, where the women literally are thumbing their noses at the Catholic Church, and have taken permenant birth control into their own hands (Sterialization at time of delivery of a child). If any of those women work for the Catholic church, and pay for that procedure, then the Catholic Church is funding permenant birth control.

    I am for birth control because it does cut down on abortions. I see no reason why that cannot be included in the health insurance. Let’s face it, they will raise the rates, and the people will pay for it anyway.

    You should not be able to pick and choose which laws of the land you will observe.

    Super Tuesday’

    By Thomas Sowell

    http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Many people are looking to the many primary elections on March 6th — “Super Tuesday” — to clarify where this year’s Republican nomination campaign is headed.

    It may clarify far more than that, including the future of this nation and of Western civilization. If a clear winner with a commanding lead emerges, the question then becomes whether that candidate is someone who is likely to defeat Barack Obama.

    If not, then the fate of America — and of Western nations, including Israel — will be left in the hands of a man with a lifelong hostility to Western values and Western interests.

    President Obama is such a genial man that many people, across the ideological space, cannot see him as a danger.

    For every hundred people who can see his geniality, probably only a handful see the grave danger his warped policies and ruthless tactics pose to a whole way of life that has given generation after generation of Americans unprecedented freedom and prosperity.

    Every weekday NewsAndOpinion.com publishes what many in the media and Washington consider “must-reading”. HUNDREDS of columnists and cartoonists regularly appear. Sign up for the daily update. It’s free. Just click here.

    The election next November will not be just another election, and the stakes add up to far more than the sum of the individual issues. Moreover, if reelected and facing no future election, whatever political constraints may have limited how far Obama would push his radical agenda will be gone.

    He would have the closest thing to a blank check. Nothing could stop him but impeachment or a military coup, and both are very unlikely. A genial corrupter is all the more dangerous for being genial.

    The four remaining Republican candidates have to be judged, not simply by whether they would make good presidents, but by how well they can cut through Obama’s personal popularity and glib rhetoric, to alert the voters as to the stakes in this year’s election.

    Ron Paul? Even those of us who agree with much of his domestic agenda, including getting rid of the Federal Reserve System, cannot believe that his happy-go-lucky attitude toward Iran’s getting a nuclear weapon represents anything other than a grave danger to the whole Western World.

    Rick Santorum has possibilities, but can he survive the media’s constant attempts to paint him as some kind of religious nut who would use the government to impose his views on others? And, if he can, will he also be able to go toe-to-toe with Obama in debates?

    I would not bet the rent money on it. And what is at stake is far bigger than the rent money.

    Mitt Romney is the kind of candidate that the Republican establishment has always looked for, a moderate who can appeal to independents. It doesn’t matter how many such candidates have turned out to be disasters on election night, going all the way back to Thomas E. Dewey in 1948.

    Nor does it matter that the Republicans’ most successful candidate of the 20th century — Ronald Reagan, with two consecutive landslide victories at the polls — was nobody’s idea of a mushy moderate.

    He stood for something. And he could explain what he stood for. These may sound like modest achievements, but they are very rare, especially among Republicans.

    Newt Gingrich is the only candidate still in the field who can clearly take on Barack Obama in one-on-one debate and cut through the Obama rhetoric and mystique with hard facts and plain logic.

    Nor is this just a matter of having a gift of gab. Gingrich has a far deeper grasp of both the policies and the politics than the other Republican candidates.

    Does Gingrich have political “baggage”? More than you could carry on a commercial airliner.

    Charges of opportunism have been among the most serious raised against the former Speaker of the House. But being President of the United States is the opportunity of a lifetime. If that doesn’t sober a man up, it is hard to imagine what would.

    Do any of the Republican candidates seem ideal? No. But, the White House cannot be left vacant, while we hope for a better field of candidates in 2016. We have to make our choice among the alternatives actually available, of which Obama is by far the worst.

    Yes, because He CAN BE CONTROLLED.. by the GOP Establishment. Gingrich, not so much!
    ………………………………..

    I would have re-arranged the paragraphs a bit from the original article, reinforcing the point made early on concerning Obama’s genial side. The side he learned as a child “always smile” most likely by Davis. The ‘smile’ seen as an innocuous, feminine trait, cultivated as an adult into something more because of his mixed ethnicity and brought to fruition as a campaign weapon under the tutelage of Bill Ayers/Bernadette Dorn when he was of college age.

    The Bottom Line is this:

    “Do any of the Republican candidates seem ideal? No. But, the White House cannot be left vacant, while we hope for a better field of candidates in 2016. We have to make our choice among the alternatives actually available, of which Obama is by far the worst.”
    ……………

    This morning’s MTP interview, Gingrich mentioned the three candidates met the night before agreeing whichever one was the eventual nominee… all three of them would work together in solidarity to defeat Obama.. which to me, was a tiny bit of peace of mind that Gingrich would still be an asset the Republicans would use to defeat Obama. I took Gingrich’s passing statement to Gregory as a deal made with the other candidates behind the scenes that he be guaranteed a valuable WH position after either Romney or Santorum became the designated R nominee-

    …………….

    “Obama would have the closest thing to a blank check. Nothing could stop him but impeachment or a military coup, and both are very unlikely. A genial corrupter is all the more dangerous for being genial.”
    …………

    To me, this is the deal breaker that should send everyone running to vote for the R nominee- unless, of course, the Breitbart news is so volatile it changes the dynamics of this election.

    A fair chunk of an article we’ve been waiting a long time to see:
    Rush Limbaugh Isn’t the Only Media Misogynist – The Daily Beast

    =======================

    Good article on sexist attacks on Hillary and on Santorum’s wife. Palin got those too, and some lessor women candidates. The women-haters don’t just target women for ordinary criticism, or even for ‘silly women serving tea’ kind of criticism. They USE references to the woman’s bodies or to her supposed sexual practice (or her sexual unattractiveness).

    An extreme example was the meme that Palin’s pregnancy was a fake, then demands that she show medical records of the preliminary to the birth: water breaking during a speech, etc. Recently Wes Pruden used the same kind of attack on a woman senator, at http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/10/pruden-condoms-are-only-part-of-it/ saying “the senator can find all the rubbers she needs at the corner drugstore.”

    That is the key to the insults to Fluke. Trying to make it about the body of the advocate instead of about the issue.

    Using a word like ‘bimbo’ plays into that degradation of women as women.

    My snopes link works and validates as to the very last paragraph they most likely will be exempt because they will have had six years to qualify under their religious leanings based on whether or not they receive Social Security because the mandate doesn’t kick in until 2014. There is not an existing definitive decision listing the groups that are exempt- So, to say ANYTHING about religious sects has been debunked is an intellectually dishonest and misleading statement.

    Another example was the attacks on Geraldine Ferraro, eg “Who cares what a dried up old woman says?”

    BD is July 4. He announced on July 15 his BD was next week.

    Basil, his birthday (according to BC anyway) is August 4th, not July 4th….

    Mrs. SMith:
    “Muslims are exempt from ObamaCare because of their religious beliefs.”
    ====

    Jeswezey:
    Even if this is true, which it is not afaik, still wouldn’t justify it. That is, Muslims should not be exempted and Catholics shouldn’t be either. It’s the law of the land. Shitty law in general, but that’s the way it is.

    =========================

    Yes, it’s a shitty law, and has been ever since the GOP got their HMO system established instead of Hillarycare. Imo the employers should not be involved in any way. An individual should be free to choose among many insurance sources (as with Hillarycare) and health care should not be a factor in choosing where to work. I’d support a system to get the employers out of the loop altogether, for their own sake as well as the workers’.

    But while this system is in place and workers are stuck with no other way to get insurance, then all insurance plans need to follow the basic guidelines (which Catholic institutions have been following in over 20 states already for years).

    The current flap is phoney. If providing contraception (directly, without the current fig leaf) were such a big issue, then why have the Catholic schools and charities been doing it already in 20+ states? Why didn’t they close those institutions in protest, or make a fuss earlier? Maybe because their donors wanted a fuss in an election year?

    Mrs. SMith:
    My snopes link works and validates as to the very last paragraph they most likely will be exempt

    =====================

    Snopes’ conclusion says just the opposite:

    snopes.com/politics/medical/exemptions.asp
    Most likely, though, Muslims would not qualify for an exemption from U.S. health insurance requirements because U.S. Muslims do not have a tradition of spurning Social Security (which is viewed more as a form of caring for those who are unable to meet their own needs than as something which involves elements of uncertainty, gambling, and interest payments), and no Muslim group has ever qualified for an exemption under the guidelines which define which religious groups would be exempt from the health care law.

    Here’s a link to the previous discussion with a lot of boring detail; let’s not run it all over again.

    Statement from President of Georgetown University.

    The university president, John J. DeGioia, said in a statement: “One need not agree with her substantive position to support her right to respectful free expression. And yet, some of those who disagreed with her position — including Rush Limbaugh and commentators throughout the blogosphere and in various other media channels — responded with behavior that can only be described as misogynistic, vitriolic, and a misrepresentation of the position of our student.”

    Maybe he’s a closet PUMA?

    lorac,

    What I was pointing out was that DURING a July 15 press conference he announced his birthday was next week, which would have meant some time during the week of Jul8 a full 3 weeks before his actual birthday of August 4.

    That sure sounded strange to me.that

    Disagree. There are things about the contrarian fairy that are not a product of being fed:
    – multiple repeated and redundant posts on nonseniscal topics
    – topics that are not of interest, at least right now, to those who want to save the country and who are on here
    – taunting of other posters, I have asked her to not read or respond to my posts, yet she continues despite my request…just to taunt…not productive to our cause
    – the more objections raised to her, the more she posts and taunts
    – when pressed about her logic, she suddenly has to leave the site
    – she blasts people with being disloyal to Hillary; I doubt there is anyone on here that agrees with any politicians policies one hundred percent of the time; okay for her to disagree with posters here, but not posters with policy
    – she actively recruits reinforcement from other blogs when she feels too much heat

    It is almost as if she is working for the ‘other’ side and wants ObaMAO reSelected. Is she getting paid by them or their proxies?

    I personally want all my energy to go toward making Him a One Term POTUS, even if Hillary never runs again. I will now never be convinced that the contrarian fairy wants the same thing. But, Admin, it is getting really hard to concentrate here with the contrarian fairy working so hard against all of us. Could you please do something?

    Just checked if Larry Johnson still has his post up calling Sarah Palin the C-word. I guess the idea was to attract hits for his site-

    My software blocker said there were 5 mind you, five ads sites tracking my clicks there- a regular honey hole for spam in your in-box.

    On a completely different topic; I used to be a money supporter to Planned Parenthood until 2008. When the heads of Planned Parenthood came out and endorsed the fool that is currently in the White House, instead of Hillary, I withdrew all my monetary support. I was soooo mad because Hillary had done so much to further the cause of PP and they pretty much stabbed her in the back. I couldn’t believe it and I actually cried. Just thought of that when I was going through the mail just now. PP keeps sending me pleas for my donations but they just go into the trash can since they did that to Hillary.

    This is what some of us have been talking about with Gingrich.

    But others think Romney can win the general. Iirc, Romney has not brought home half of the votes in any state; if he is such a sure fire general election candidate, then why can he not close the deal in the primary. Anyone not in loooooovvvvveeee with the current administration knows that this election is pivotal for the country, so why are the citizens [not the pundits, pollsters, or establishment folks] not on fire for him? There has to be a very good and valid reason, for me that puts his election in the general in grave peril.

    A huge proportion of TDO’s posts contain representations that are just SOOOO flagrantly deceitful that it takes a bit of will not to respond. Its like the old car wreck analogy thing. You try not to look but sometimes you can’t resist.

    THAT said, if you see TDO’s name on a post, just scroll past it. Don’t engage TDO. That’s what it wants.

    I know this completely off topic, but my wife, and other members of my family voluneteer at a food shelter, I’m stunned how bare they are becoming so often, and its not just the very poor that are coming in for help. I don’t know how the financial channels are touting a recovery just because the Dow has hit 13K, on the real streets, main street america, I’m seeing more and more people struggling.
    Just want to encourage anyone who can, please donate to your local food shelters, the people I spoke with at my local food shelter there are struggling to keep just basic products in stock, and they said its happening everywhere. No amount is too small, especially as so many of our fellow citizens are struggling.

    Wondering if admin can give us a two week vacation from TDO’s posts.. I have wordpress sites. On the backside there are words that can be types in that will trigger the post as spam and withold the post from publishing until admin releases the post.

    Admin- Is that too much to ask seeing that all HELL is breaking loose and our minds are suffering enough abuse at the hands of Obama. A little peaceful setting on the forum for a few weeks is all we are asking for-

    This to me is a shocking development-

    Million dollar homes going to foreclosure- meaning the economy is not recovering, not recovering at all if these homeowners do not stand a chance of keeping their homes. These people would be the self-employed, big company CEO’s caught in employment downsizing- This is almost unheard of at least in the last 30-35 yrs…

    This is very bad news, if this isn’t an outlier – which I don’t think it is…
