This time it has to do with what the White House knew about the release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, convicted of the Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. When al-Megrahi was released in August of 2009, it was under the pretense that he was sick with cancer and wouldn't be alive today. Since then, doctors have conceded that he might live for another ten years or more. At the time, the Obama White House was indignant over his release, saying it was a 'mistake'.

Via the London Telegraph then:
The US government condemned the decision to release him, as did US relatives of some of the victims of the 1988 atrocity.

One US Senator said that by releasing Megrahi, Scottish ministers had increased the threat of international terrorism, and internet campaigners threatened a US boycott of Scottish products.

Mr Obama said: "We have been in contact with the Scottish government, indicating that we objected to this, and we thought it was a mistake."
Now the Australian is reporting that the Obama administration supported the decision to release the Lockerbie bomber over sending him to a Libyan prison:
Correspondence obtained by The Sunday Times reveals the Obama administration considered compassionate release more palatable than locking up Abdel Baset al-Megrahi in a Libyan prison.

The intervention, which has angered US relatives of those who died in the attack, was made by Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, a week before Megrahi was freed in August last year on grounds that he had terminal cancer.

The document, acquired by a well-placed US source, threatens to undermine US President Barack Obama's claim last week that all Americans were "surprised, disappointed and angry" to learn of Megrahi's release.
Translation: Joe Wilson is right again.


I don't believe I've ever seen the inherently evil hypocrisy of liberalism exposed so stunningly in less than one minute. Every one of the quotes and attributes this man - portraying a liberal - claims as his own in this film were pulled directly from the listserv known as JourNolist, a creation of far left whack job at the Washington Post, Ezra Klein. Liberals espouse non-violence but that only applies when you agree with them. The abortion debate is the prime example but have a look at this smackdown.

Talk about dis-ingenuousness. This is revisionist history on steroids. None other than Van Jones has written an op-ed for the New York Times and in it, he attempts to ride the coattails of the Shirley Sherrod controversy, comparing her plight to his. While he does point to differences between their stories, placing her on a slightly higher pedestal, the gall of the comparison is striking as Jones implies that he was the victim of a smear campaign based on a swear word and a 9/11 conspiracy petition on which his name was listed as a signatory.

Via the New York Times:
Last year I, too, resigned from an administration job, after I uttered some ill-chosen words about the Republican Party and was accused — falsely — of signing my name to a petition being passed around by 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Partisan Web sites and pundits pounced, and I, too, saw my name go from obscurity to national infamy within hours.
Isn't it convenient how Jones makes no mention of his avowed communism, his ties to a radical group called STORM, his support of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, his quote about dropping the radical pose for radical ends, and countless other anti-American stances / views.

It should be clear that the left and the Obama administration is getting very concerned about the power of the alternative media. Just take a look at this argument from Jones:
Life inside the Beltway has become a combination of speed chess and Mortal Kombat: one wrong move can mean political death. In the era of YouTube, Twitter and 24-hour cable news, nobody is safe. Even the lowliest staff member knows that an errant comment could wind up online, making her name synonymous with scandal.

The result is that people at all levels of government are becoming overly cautious, unwilling to venture new opinions or even live regular lives for fear of seeing even the most innocuous comment or photograph used against them, all while trying to protect and improve the country.

The victims aren’t just government employees — the public as well is hurt. The imperative to immediately and constantly churn out news on even the most minor bit of controversy leads news organizations, and partisans posing as news organizations, to cross the line from responsible reporting to dangerous rumor-mongering.
Something tells me Beck will be reading this op-ed and responding to it tomorrow.

Welcome to Black Liberation Theology. Whether you're talking about wealth re-distribution, collective salvation over individual salvation, or taking from the haves and giving to the have nots, one theme is consistent. BLT is not about forgiveness or redemption. It is about vendettas, payback, and racial hatred. Ain't it ironic that the notion of taking that which belongs to others and giving it to someone else is at the heart of Saul Alinsky's teachings?

It can never be overstated that Alinsky - Obama's ideological mentor - dedicated his work to Lucifer himself.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. There are two passages from Scripture that fly in the face of BLT. One is John 12: 1-6 and the other is Matthew 25: 14-30.

I have become increasingly jaded when it comes to the potential for justice to be done when it involves politicians being caught and held accountable for egregious lawbreaking. Charlie Rangel notwithstanding, former ACORN employee turned whistle blower Anita Moncrief, likely has an uphill battle on her hands when she files FEC charges against Barack Obama relative to his 2008 campaign. She appears to have the goods on Obama but supposedly, so did Blagojevich. As an aside, note that not only did Blago decide not to take the stand but also not required to testify were Tony Rezko, Rahm Emanuel, Valerie Jarrett, Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, or Obama; the defense rested after two days.

But I digress. Anita Moncrief has released donor lists that contain the names of people who donated to the Obama campaign in 2008. She claims that Obama's people gave the lists to ACORN so the community organization could get them to donate again, despite already giving the maximum amount.

Moncrief has a new website called Emerging Corruption. On it, she has posted a 700+ page document, containing thousands of names of people / entities who had already donated to the campaign. In 2008, Moncrief was working with a New York Times reporter named Stephanie Strom and provided this and other information to Strom.
As a confidential source for the New York Times, I turned this document over to reporter Stephanie Strom months before the 2008 presidential elections and though the list includes information more complete than what the Obama campaign turned over to the Federal Election Commission, the NYT decided to bury the story.
In light of the JourNolist scandal, which proved that the New York Times itself had people on the listserv that collaborated and conspired to control the news, what happened next, when viewed through that prism, says quite a bit. In fact, it should be considered criminal all by itself. Strom emailed Moncrief in the days leading up to the 2008 election. Here is a portion of that email:
“I’m calling a halt to my efforts. I just had two unpleasant calls with the Obama campaign, wherein the spokesman was screaming and yelling and cursing me, calling me a rightwing nut and a conspiracy theorist and everything else…”
I don't know about you but these attempts to control the media by the Obama campaign are eerily reminiscent of what Rod Blagojevich tried to do with the Chicago Tribune. Also, remember what Blago told his Chief of Staff John Harris when talking about Obama and Rezko, another huge fundraiser:

"(Obama's) more Tony'd up than I am."
