Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Just when you thought the race card was maxed out, the NAACP and George Soros-sponsored groups are teaming up to double down. I'd say the good news at this point is that the last refuge of scoundrels - the race card - is wearing thinner by the day and if these folks think that teaming up might somehow bolster their effectiveness, color me skeptical. This really is nothing more than a new take on a tactic tried several months ago when the 'Crash the Party' website was launched to encourage people on the left to infiltrate tea parties, while posing as racists.

This effort is just more coordinated and better funded. The new Tea Party Tracker website has been launched and the leftwing lemmings are being encouraged to record videos of Tea Party racism and send them in. Knowing these whackos, two lefties could go to a tea party with one filming the other spewing racial epithets. Seriously, that's what these people do. It sounds outlandish but it's really what they do.

Via Fox News:
A new website sponsored by the NAACP and left-leaning media operations is seeking videographers and bloggers who will search out "racism" and "extremism" among Tea Partiers. will feature tweets, interviews with people at rallies, blog entries and a picture of a t-shirt they say someone spotted at a rally that reads "Blacks own slaves in Mauitania, Sudan, Niger & Haiti."

The site, sponsored by the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America, will monitor "racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement. We call on the Tea Party to repudiate extremists among their ranks and join in civil dialogue with all Americans."
As for the comment about blacks owning slaves in the Sudan, it's factually accurate but not germane to the debate. That doesn't make it racist, just irrelevant. If that's the best Soros and the NAACP can do, bring it on.

The continued pushing of the lie that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) was spat on is a tactic of socialism. It's also another claim these folks continue to make. Oh, by the way, Emanuel Cleaver is one of the 70 congressmen who is registered with the Socialist Caucus.


This report was first published in April and made some play in June here in the U.S. Now there is a video that explains how the claim was discovered. The wife of Avi Lipkin - Avi is a long time IDF veteran and assistant to the Israeli Prime Minister - is Egyptian born and has been working for Israel's radio service, monitoring arabic broadcasts. During one such broadcast, she reportedly witnessed the foreign minister of Egypt telling a panel that Barack Obama told him personally that he (Obama) was a Muslim.

Here is the relevant excerpt as published in Israel Today on April 29, 2010:
"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term "Islamic extremism" no longer be used in official government documents and statements.
Here is the YouTube video that has now gone viral.

Perhaps someone might do CNN's Rick Sanchez a favor and get the above video in his hands; it might eliminate or reduce the amount of apoplectic confusion he seems to have about why so many Americans - 20% at last count - believe their president is Muslim. This exchange between Sanchez and Jessica Yellin made news because the CNN anchor called Obama the 'Cotton pickin' president' but keep watching. You'll see his frustration is rooted in Obama's inability to convince people he's not Muslim.

If he's not convinced, Sanchez - along with the other liberal media pundits - must necessarily believe that Avi Lipkin's wife is a liar and that her lies are contributing to the increasing belief that Obama is Muslim. Perhaps for one fleeting second, Sanchez should consider the possibility that the woman is telling the truth.


The story of Inspector General Gerald Walpin being fired made some significant waves in the summer of 2009 as far as political scandals go. It's not over apparently. In June of 2009, Walpin was fired by the Obama administration after given 45 minutes notice. A law designed to protect IGs, which Obama voted for when a Senator, states that Inspectors General must be given 30 days notice before getting fired pending congressional review. This was written into the law to afford IGs protection against politically motivated firings - IGs often uncover uncomfortable truths when allowed to do their jobs.

That's exactly what Walpin claims happened to him. So he filed a lawsuit demanding his job back. Small problem. The judge assigned to the case - U.S. District Judge Richard Roberts - appears to have quite a cozy back-scratching relationship with Attorney General Eric Holder.

The Washington Times reported on September 1st:
''I've got your back." That's what U.S. District Judge Richard Roberts said to his decades-long friend, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., in introducing the AG at an April 22 speech at Vassar College. At that time, Judge Roberts was ignoring several legal deadlines to the benefit of Mr. Holder's administration on numerous motions and countermotions in a key lawsuit for which Mr. Holder's underlings effectively were acting as defense attorneys.

Pressed by a higher court to justify his delays, Judge Roberts two months later ruled completely in the administration's favor - tossing out the suit, without trial, of Gerald A. Walpin, the AmeriCorps inspector general whose investigations had embarrassed several of President Obama's friends.
Now Walpin is not only demanding that his case be reinstated but that it be put in front of a new judge. The relationship between Roberts and Holder is quite extensive and goes back many years. Based on Roberts' stalling and ultimate dismissal of Walpin's case given obvious reasons to allow it to proceed, the argument that Roberts should have recused himself appears well-founded.

WND reported:
Roberts dismissed Walpin's suit on June 17 of this year, on the grounds that the act does not guarantee that even an illegally fired inspector general will get his job back.

In an August 30 brief, attorneys representing Walpin asked the district court of the District of Columbia to reinstate the case, and either reassign it to another judge or order Roberts to adjudicate it swiftly and fairly.

The brief argues that Roberts repeatedly ignored deadlines, denying Walpin swift justice and dragging the case out for nearly a year, to the benefit of the Obama administration. Conversely, it also points out that Roberts took less than 24 hours to reject Walpin's nearly 500-page motion for a preliminary injunction.

As Walpin's attorneys pointed out, the motion constituted "a volume realistically impossible to digest in that short time."

Roberts rejected the motion in one terse sentence: "Plaintiff had failed to make an adequate showing that he risks suffering irreparable injury."
Be sure to read both the WND piece as well as the Washington Times piece if you need a refresher on the details surrounding Walpin's firing, which included his contention that Obama friend, former NBA basketball star, and Sacramento mayor, Kevin Johnson misused government money.
