War against Future Women: Jay Carney ok with Gendercide?

In light of the newly released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood employees who are all to willing to help facilitate abortions based on gender, this exchange between Fox News Channel's Ed Henry and White House press secretary Jay Carney takes on added significance.

Note that Carney deflects the concern away from one that asks about "doctors" who are willing to kill unborn females because they're females to one that involves placing too much of a burden on doctors for determining the reason for the abortion.

Poor "doctors."

This is disgraceful.

Video: Sheila Jackson Lee defends Gendercide

As the House was preparing to debate a bill authored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) was doing an interview with MSNBC. Franks wants to pass a bill that will make gendercide illegal, which is increasingly in the news due to undercover videos from Live Action. Nonetheless, Lee avoided questions about that topic and instead leapfrogged to an alternate future reality where women would be dragged out into the streets from their patient rooms and beaten if such a bill were passed.

Uh, what do you expect from a woman who asked if the Mars rover could drive over to where the Astronauts planted the US flag?

Video: More Gendercide... in New York City

After the first Live Action undercover video in Texas, that exposed Planned Parenthood as an entity that is facilitating gendercide, the abortuary issued a statement that vehemently denied condoning the practice. Now Live Action has released another video that shows Planned Parenthood doing the same thing in New York City.

MSNBC Host interviews guest on Mormonism's 'White Horse Prophecy'

MSNBC's Tamron Hall interviewed Edward-Isaac Dovere from the POLITICO. The topic of conversation was Mormonism's 'White Horse Prophecy,' allegedly made by Mormonism's founder, Joseph Smith. At its core is a belief that a wealthy Mormon would be elected president at a time when the US Constitution is hanging by a thread.

In this clip, Dovere actually minimizes the importance of the prophecy by explaining that it was first reported by one lone person 50 years after it was allegedly uttered by Smith. Dovere does make a subtle attempt to tie Romney to the prophecy by saying that Mormons believe the Constitution was 'divinely inspired,' which is also a part of the 'White Horse Prophecy.' He then referred to a comment by Romney that the presidential candidate believes the Constitution was... you guessed it, 'divinely inspired.'

Compounding this is the fact that Romney's campaign is not responding to inquiries about these things. Dovere makes this point as well. The media knows full well that when the subject of Mormonism is brought up, Romney would rather not discuss it. Unfortunately for Romney, the green light for the media to continue pressing the issue couldn't be any brighter as a result.

The strategy of the mainstream media will become clear. It is going to continue piling up the bizarre aspects, practices, and beliefs inside the Mormon church to the point of having an overwhelming preponderance of items that Romney will not be able to withstand. The more such things are met with silence from Romney, the more damaging they will be.

Video: Best Political Meltdown ever?

This guy's name is State Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL) and he's fed up. Relative to the meltdown, it really doesn't matter all that much why he explodes on the House floor but it's about a bill that is going to raise property taxes on his constituents to deal with the state's pension crisis while Chicago residents skate. As you can see, he's lashing out at the majority party in general and the Speaker in particular.

The reason? His constituents are likely giving him more than an earful back at his district and he wants them to know that he's with them but the Democrats are preventing him from doing what those who elected him to office want him to do. I think this is part theatrics for those constituents but it also comes across as raw emotion.

Frankly, if we had more of this, C-SPAN's ratings would definitely go up.

Video: Attendees of Holder event think Operation Fast and Furious is a Movie

While speaking at a meeting for the Congressional Black Caucus  Congressional Black Socialists Caucus (save for Rep. Allen West, who has joined the group primarily to annoy the socialists) and the Conference of National Black Churches, attendees were asked what they thought of when they heard the phrase, 'Fast and Furious.' They all thought it was a movie.

Prior to being asked about this, Eric Holder gave the keynote speech, during which he asked for the prayers of those in the audience. If Fast and Furious is dogging him so much, shouldn't the attendees know the specifics about what they're praying for?

More Trump videos over Birther Certificate

Gotta love this kinda theater (Trump does).

First, Trump vs. Blitzer via Right Newz:

Second, Trump vs. George Will on Greta via GWP:

"Civil Rights" Coalition lobbying Boehner not to hold Eric Holder in Contempt

A coalition of civil rights communist organizations have banded together to put pressure on House Speaker John Boehner not to issue the contempt citation to Eric Holder over the Attorney General's refusal to turn over documents subpoenaed in the Fast and Furious scandal.

Via CNN, h/t Sipsey Street:
With the threat of a contempt charge hanging over Attorney General Eric Holder, 14 civil rights, labor, and liberal activist groups Tuesday urged Speaker of the House John Boehner not to proceed to a contempt vote.

The organizations which are closely allied with the Obama administration charged that to hold the attorney general in contempt for failing to turn over demanded documents on the "fast and furious" investigation "seems to be a rush to judgment intended to create a stain on the office of the attorney general."

The two-page letter, written by the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights repeats the claims made by the Justice Department in refusing to provide sensitive internal law enforcement documents. The organizations said Holder has already turned over the disputed documents to the inspector general for his ongoing investigation into the flawed gun-smuggling operation. "They reportedly include law enforcement information, grand jury transcripts, and other information that would compromise ongoing investigations and prosecutions," the letter said.
Of course, the letter to Boehner was only signed by fourteen of the many groups that make up the Leadership Conference. Conspicuously absent from the list of signatories on this particular letter were Hispanic groups that are part of the Conference. Why? Because hundreds of Hispanics have been murdered as a direct result of Fast and Furious.

Here is an excerpt from the letter to Boehner:
To put it simply, the attempt to cite General Holder for contempt seems to be a rush to judgment intended to create a stain on the office of the Attorney General. It is contributing to an environment of accusatory vitriol and malignant suspicion that is both unwarranted and a significant distraction at a time when the Attorney General needs to focus on the nation’s core problems. The harshness of the attacks themselves is misplaced, and to the extent these attacks are intended to divert the Attorney General from the vigorous enforcement of the nation's laws—including those protecting civil rights, voting rights, disability rights, and other core concerns—we are deeply troubled. We are concerned that the contempt threat is intended to create a hostile environment aimed at pressuring the Attorney General to resign.
In case you'd like to get a taste for what fine, upstanding civil rights communist groups make up the Leadership Conference, here is but a sampling via the coalition's website. Groups in bold are supposed to be fighting for the rights of Hispanics.
  1. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
  2. American Association for Affirmative Action
  3. American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee
  4. AFL-CIO
  5. Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)
  6. Hip Hop caucus (yes, the Hip Hop caucus)
  7. American Islamic Congress
  8. Amnesty International
  9. Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF)
  10. National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEAO)
  11. La Raza
  12. SEIU
  13. Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
MALDEF, NALEAO, and La Raza may not have signed the letter but neither have they repudiated it or left the Leadership Conference for its clearly ideological stance at the expense of the Hispanic cause.

What will Boehner do?

Audio: Trump jumps back into the Birth Certificate debate

Few would argue that Donald Trump played a key role in Obama releasing his long form Birth Certificate last year. Once it was released, Trump faded from public view on that issue a bit. Now, a couple of weeks after Breitbart released evidence that Obama's literary agent published a bio that said the then future president was born in Kenya, Trump is now using it to bring his profile to the fore again.

Via the Right Newz / CNBC:

Of course, George Will's performance on ABC's This Week during which he referred to Trump as a "bloviating ignoramus" will do little more than one thing - keep Trump in the news.

Trump then proceeded to go directly after Will via twitter.

Via New York Post:
Trump hit back later Sunday, tweeting, "George Will may be the dumbest (and most overrated) political commentator of all time. If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose."

Just days before he is set to headline a Las Vegas fundraiser with Romney, Trump made headlines by saying in an interview published Friday that he still does not believe Obama was born in the US -- even after the White House released a long-form birth certificate last year showing the president was, in fact, born in Hawaii.

Later Friday, Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom sought to distance the candidate from Trump's comments, telling CNN that Romney "accepts that President Obama was born in the United States."

Will may also have a more personal reason for disliking Trump, as the polarizing mogul called him a "totally overrated fool" and a "hack" during a March interview on "FOX & Friends."
Considering how vehemently Andrew Breitbart avoided the issue of Obama's birth certificate, it's mildly ironic that a Breitbart story is giving Trump a second wind on the issue. The Breitbart story may be breathing new life into the Birther movement.

Catholic Bishops preparing for Civil Disobedience

It's pretty safe to say that any administration that agitates the Catholic Church to this degree is showing reckless disregard for the first amendment and is intolerant.

Via CNS News:
Having organized 43 plaintiffs—including the archdioceses of New York and Washington and the University of Notre Dame—to file 12 different lawsuits against the Obama administration last Monday alleging the administration is violating the religious freedom of Catholics, the Catholic bishops of the United States are now preparing Catholics for what may be the most massive campaign of civil disobedience in this country since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and early 1960s.

“Some unjust laws impose such injustices on individuals and organizations that disobeying the laws may be justified,” the bishops state in a document developed to be inserted into church bulletins in Catholic parishes around the country in June.

“Every effort must be made to repeal them,” the bishops say in the document, which is already posted on the website of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “When fundamental human goods, such as the right of conscience, are at stake, we may need to witness to the truth by resisting the law and incurring its penalties.”

The bulletin insert reminds Catholic parishioners that the bishops have called for “A Fortnight of Freedom”—which they have described as “a special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action”—to take place from June 21 to July 4.
The elites always seem to twist themselves into pretzels to avoid calling the west's war with Islam a religious war. Meanwhile, we have a religious war right here, being waged by the Barack Obama administration against the Catholic Church.

Video: Gendercide at Planned Parenthood in Texas

Seriously, where is the feminist movement. If ever there was a cause tailor-made to fight, wouldn't the selective abortions of the unborn based on gender be it? Planned Parenthood has been caught... again. This time in a Texas clinic, advising a pregnant woman on how to use state funds to get an OB/GYN for late term ultrasounds to be used in the decision-making process of keeping or killing the baby based on its sex.

In this video via LiveAction, h/t Daily Caller:

Another interesting aspect to this is that Planned Parenthood publicly denied this practice earlier this year.

Via DC:
In late April, Planned Parenthood suspected that it was the subject of such a sting operation. At the time, the group called Live Action’s tactic a hoax and condemned sex-selection abortions.

“Planned Parenthood does not offer sex determination services; our ultrasound services are limited to medical purposes,” Planned Parenthood education vice president Leslie Kantor and Carolyn Westhoff, a senior medical adviser for Planned Parenthood, wrote. ”Gender bias is contrary to everything our organization works for daily in communities across the country. Planned Parenthood opposes racism and sexism in all forms, and we work to advance equity and human rights in the delivery of health care.”

“Planned Parenthood condemns sex selection motivated by gender bias, and urges leaders to challenge the underlying conditions that lead to these beliefs and practices, including addressing the social, legal, economic, and political conditions that promote gender bias and lead some to value one gender over the other,” the pair continued, asserting that stings such as Live Action’s are an attempt by “anti-choice” advocates to further “legislation that blocks access to basic reproductive health care, including birth control.”
There's nothing quite like being "pro-choice" and "pro-feminist" while supporting  the "choice" of a woman to exterminate a member of your gender. Then, of course, lying about it doesn't help either.

Hannity stakes his (weak) public position on Islam

There are several reasons why high profile individuals do not speak the truth about something. It can be tactical or it can be for career preservation. Wikileaks all but proved it is rarely out of ignorance. Enter Sean Hannity. He has publicly stated his position that Islam is not the problem. Instead, it is "RADICAL" Islam.

Logan's Warning at Right Side News got into a twitter battle with the talk show host and made this patently apparent. Interestingly, it was Hannity who ultimately blocked LW because he apparently wasn't prepared to logically defend his position after LW quoted very specific verses.
Hannity ducked the verses, told me there are “different interpretations” and threatened to block me on Twitter.

I told him that is leftist talk, and asked him to show me just ONE version that does not call for the dominance over non-Muslims. Of course he did not respond.

He definitely did not like being challenged. But I was not going to bow to him because he is on TV. The truth is more important! The argument ended with Hannity ignoring all the facts I had sent him, and him stamping his feet as he stated he will NOT say Islam itself is the problem.

Then he blocked me.
Yes, Logan's Warning doesn't have the public profile that Hannity does so it's definitely more difficult for Hannity to take such a position. It was also difficult for Winston Churchill to take the position he did against the Nazis; he took it anyway - at great expense - until the time was right. Just because doing the right thing may be more difficult for Hannity than it is for LW doesn't make it any less right. Churchill stated very uncomfortable realities from a much higher public position than that held by Hannity.

We're rapidly approaching the point where everyone will have to choose sides. If you're not on the side of Islam, you will have to be on the side of Neville Chamberlain or Winston Churchill. Hannity has historically been very critical of Chamberlain. Considering his stance on Islam, Hannity may need to stop doing that if he is to avoid justified charges of hypocrisy.

Here is Hannity's recent interview with Feisal Abdul Rauf, who is promoting a book. If Hannity had Rauf on his show to expose the imam's true intentions, it would have been a good move. Instead, the talk show host only helped the radically deceptive imam sell more books while pushing his deceptive agenda.

Hannity has unfortunately staked his very Chamberlain-esque position.

It's really kinda sad. It's also tragically ironic because Hannity has said countless times that journalism died in 2008.

Another piece to the Obama Selective Service puzzle?

Of all the questions surrounding Barack Obama's identification documents, I always found the ones about his Selective Service registration the most compelling. Debbie Schlussel broke this story back in 2008 and very legitimate questions remain unanswered. Now we learn - via Breitbart - that in 1983, Obama penned an article that called on people to ignore the law that required them to register with the Selective Service.
In late 2008—long after the election—the media revealed a long-forgotten article written by Barack Obama while at Columbia. Obama wrote the March 1983 article, “Breaking the War Mentality,” about two campus groups, Arms Race Alternatives (ARA) and Student Against Militarism (SAM). Ben Smith of Politico (now at Buzzfeed) told readers that Obama’s views reflected the “very conventional campus liberalism of the time.”

Wrong. Smith and the media failed to investigate what the activists at SAM were actually doing: encouraging students to break the law by not registering for the Selective Service and harassing military recruiters.
A little later, we learn a little bit about the current chairman of the FCC, Julius Genachowski, who seemed to excuse the illegal act:
SAM’s most serious form of political activism, however, was encouraging students not to register for the Selective Service. Refusing to register for the Selective Service could mean arrest, imprisonment, and—most importantly—denial of federal student aid. SAM counseled Columbia’s estimated 400 non-registrants and tried to form them into a political force on campus. The non-registrant’s “refusal to register seems to reflect more of an abstract repulsion to war and violence than any political opposition to the American political system,” wrote Julius Genachowski for the Spectator on November 29, 1982 (later Obama’s classmate at Harvard Law School, and his appointee to lead the Federal Communications Commission). “But they are nevertheless acutely aware that a peaceful world would require a restructuring of that system—and that such a change could only be furthered by the public declaration of their opposition to draft registration.”

SAM hosted an event encouraging students to do just that. It even formed a support group for law-breakers.
So, if Obama registered with the Selective Service, he would have been the quintessential hypocrite by endorsing a group that others to break the law while he himself did not. If he didn't register with the Selective Service, he broke the law by not doing so. Moreover, it will have meant that he committed a felony because the Selective Service registration card dissected by Schlussel is, in fact, fraudulent.

For some reason, this clip came to mind as I was writing this post:

Audio: Al Sharpton compares Republicans to murderous Nazis

What group of people advocates for murdering those who don't think like they do and identifies them as sub-human? Hint: they view anyone who doesn't practice their religion as "apes and pigs." Another hint: this group actually allied with the Nazis in WWII. Yeah, well Al Sharpton thinks it's Republicans.

I wonder if Sharpton ever heard of Larry Grathwohl, the man who outed Obama's colleague Bill Ayers as a man who more aptly fits such a role.

Wow! Chris Matthews is really bitter about that Tingle

When you get right down to it, there are three things that really upset Chris Matthews when you bring up his comment in 2008 that Barack Obama sends 'a thrill' up his leg. First and foremost, he's upset that it appears to becoming the centerpiece of his legacy; that comment is making him the poster child for the death of objective journalism and if he doesn't know that, he's learning it incrementally. The second thing is that he must inherently know at some level that Obama's policies are failing. Lastly, he is EXTREMELY hypersensitive about his 'thrill' being referred to as a 'tingle.' Naturally, this distinction without a real difference only increases the frequency of that word choice from the right.

Now, to this awesome Chris Matthews meltdown. Just hit play and watch his reaction to a C-SPAN moderator who reads the 2008 quote back to Matthews and asks him if he still feels the same way. At that very moment, Chris had to open up his heart and let all of his anger out; there was no stopping him.

Via (h/t Hot Air):

Chris Matthews: Jackasses, Stop Asking About Obama Speech from National Cable and Telecommunications Association on

I'm suddenly in the mood for this clip from Morning Joe the day after Matthews uttered the now infamous words in 2008. It's moments like this one that continued to build until they culminated with the outburst Matthews had with the C-SPAN guy:

Confirmed: Romney can now officially call Obama a 'socialist'

Last year, during an appearance on the O'Reilly Factor, Mitt Romney refused to call Obama a socialist when asked. Instead, he said he would prefer to just say, "he's in over his head," a "liberal," and a, "failure."

Well, the least Romney could do is ask Mr. Obama why he attended a socialist event in 1996.

Via Buzzfeed:
It's a reminder that the President presented himself as much more progressive during his time in Chicago. In this little-seen advertisement that ran in the Hyde Park Herald in 1996, Obama was listed on a panel sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), University of Chicago Democrats, and University of Chicago DSA.
Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) = Communists. Allen West was derided for identifying 80 communists in Congress. Imagine if he'd have pointed to the White House too.

Reason #1,965 Not to get excited about Mitt Romney.

Back on May 9th, Buzzfeed posted a find perhaps even more significant because it shows that Obama's gay marriage position never evolved; it changed for political expediency. He's lying... again, which is what socialists do. Here is a document signed by Obama himself. It is a list of answers he gave to questions pertaining to homosexual rights. Note what he wrote for answer #6:
"I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."
Is it possible to "evolve" and "devolve" at the same time?

Is China $1 Trillion in debt... to America?

This is certainly an interesting twist, reported by McClatchy of all places. Did you know that the American people are holding roughly $1 Trillion in Chinese bond debt? How is this possible, you ask?

Via McClatchy:
The story begins nearly 100 years ago, in 1913, when the government of China began issuing bonds to foreign investors and governments for infrastructure work to modernize the country. As the country fell into civil war in 1927, paying these debts became increasingly difficult and the government fell into default. Even so, in April 1938, the Nationalist government of China began to issue U.S.-dollar denominated bonds to finance the war against Japan's brutal invasion.

Locked in a pitched battle for survival, the government issued these bonds into 1940. As part of its wartime financial aid, the U.S. government further provided a $500 million credit to China in March 1942, shipping gold there and helping to stabilize the currency. In return, it appears that the U.S. government redeemed some of these dollar-denominated bonds. But China doesn't appear to have repaid this debt either, according to State Department records, and the declaration of the People's Republic of China in 1949 ended decades of political, military and financial cooperation.

While successor governments are usually bound by the debts of predecessor governments, the new Communist government refused to pay any of these claims. The issue lay dormant for decades, just as the bilateral relationship did. Then, in 1979, as part of normalizing relations, Washington released government financial claims regarding the expropriation of American property and appears to have dropped the matter of the war debt entirely. However, it is one thing for government decision-makers to let go of government debt, however questionable that is.

And it is entirely another thing for individual citizens to press their claims. Some U.S. investors tried to sue the Chinese government in the 1980s and 1990s. However, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act makes it very hard for any U.S. citizen to sue a foreign government in U.S. courts because the law generally says that U.S. courts do not have jurisdiction.

The law usually only allows the jurisdiction of U.S. courts if a foreign government waives its immunity, commits a tort or seizes property. Recent additional exceptions have been added for terrorism. China lost an initial summary judgment for failing to appear in court but, with the urging of the U.S. State Department, later appeared in court and successfully argued that U.S. courts did not have jurisdiction.

Today, the Chinese bonds held by U.S. investors may be worth as much as $750 billion, according to Jonna Bianco, president of the American Bondholders Foundation, who estimates the value of bonds held by investors worldwide may be $10 trillion, including interest and penalties for default.
Bianco, who is doing media interviews on this topic, is not happy about China reneging on this debt while purchasing American banks and AMC movie theaters.

Via Special Guests:
Jonna Bianco, president and founder of the American Bondholders Foundation (ABF) says that if China is the economic superpower the world believes it is, they should now begin paying back this debt to its American bondholders and the American people. Instead, China is ignoring these obligations and buying things like banks and movie theaters on American soil.

“Is it not enough that the bulk of our manufacturing base has shifted over to China placing millions and millions of Americans out of work? Is it not enough that China continues to provide ammunitions and weaponry to our enemies that are killing American troops overseas? Is it not enough that China continues to steal our intellectual property/trade secrets/patents making knock off products that they dump around the world costing American Businesses billions and billions of dollars in losses? Is it not enough that China has continued their cyber warfare attacks against American people, businesses and the American Government? Is it not enough that China continues to manipulate its currency? Is it not enough that China continues massive unfair trade practices? Is it not enough that China continues to support the North Korean and Iranian Nuclear Programs which continue to threaten the safety and future of America? At what point will Americans say....ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! No More! We must stop the double standards that China has and make them pay their bills!
It appears that both the Bush and Obama administrations have refused to press this issue. That said, the American people were bilked by their own government in 2009 to the tune of $787 Billion in stimulus and now, if reports are true that the Obama administration could forgive China's debt to Americans, we could be bilked again for about the same amount.

In fact, in an email response I received from Bianco about how much we owe China vs. how much they owe us, she replied:
"China owes the U.S. including its bondholders more than we owe them by far!"

Bald-Faced Evil: 'Doctors' in India feeding aborted female fetuses to Dogs

This report is so despicably unbelievable that I wouldn't have posted it except for the fact that it comes from an extremely reliable source.

Via LifeNews:
In a news story that sounds like it is more out of a bad science fiction movie than reality, a newspaper in India reports doctors in one city are so desperate to hide evidence that they are doing sex-selection abortions that they are feeding the remains of aborted girl babies to dogs.

Sme physicians in the city of Beed, India are engaging in the practice, according to India Today, which spoke with Varsha Deshpande of Lek Ladki Abhiyan, an NGO working against the practice. Maharashtra’s Public Health Minister Suresh Shetty also admitted to the newspaper that he had heard of reports of the practice taking place.
LifeNews quoted India Today:
A person even saw a foetus being fed to the animals. This is known to everyone in Beed, but the police are not taking action as Munde is influential,” Deshpande said.

She added that some other doctors in Beed kept dogs for the same purpose – to avoid the hassle of disposing of the bodies.

Health Minister Shetty said: “I have heard of the practice but have no evidence.”

He added that since the local police seemed to be under a lot of “pressure”, he had decided to ask the crime branch to investigate the latest case.
When it comes to the most evil acts on planet earth, this has got rank in the top three.

Report: Boehner holding up Fast and Furious Investigation out of fear that Holder will play Race Card

Scoff at the headline all you want but that is straight from the same guy who claimed to have a source back in February that told him House Speaker John Boehner was the one holding up Issa's investigation into Fast and Furious. Sipsey Street's Mike Vanderboegh proved to be correct about that just last month. That takes care of the 'who' when talking about the person responsible for preventing Issa from doing his job. How about the why? Now, Vanderboegh has quoted a source he trusts "implicitly" which seems to answer that question.

Via Sipsey Street:
"They (the GOP leadership) don't think that they will suffer for failure to follow through. They're scared of Holder's race card. . . they're scared of Trayvon. They think if they let Issa fail, that it will only be a story in the blogosphere for a day . . . that they can weather it. . . . They exert pressure behind the scenes on those weak-kneed bastards (GOP congressmen), promise them shit and when the vote happens it will only look like Issa's case was weak. . . It will be his fault, not theirs."
Boehner is scared of the Trayvon case? Really? So are the likes of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the Black Panthers determining the course of a Congressional investigation into what could be the most felonious and far-reaching scandal in the history of presidential administrations?

When Vanderboegh posted back in February that Boehner was putting the leash on Issa, the Oversight Committee chairman's office denied the charge. Whether Issa's office was duped by Boehner, defending him, or just playing it close to the vest makes little difference. The credibility is on the side of the man with the source who proved to be correct, which is what makes this new charge so outrageous.

Essentially, if true, Boehner is deciding to prove Holder right about the United States being a "nation of cowards."

Another curious dynamic at work may serve to give Boehner an out and it has to do with reports that Issa doesn't have enough votes in his own committee to issue the contempt charge.

The Oversight Committee has 40 members, 23 of which are Republicans. This obviously means that only 21 votes are necessary to find Holder in contempt of Congress but the Hill has reported that only 16 members (all Republicans) have committed to vote 'yes.' Two of the other seven Republicans remain uncommitted and the remaining five refuse to comment on their position. Of those five, there are two in particular whose silence is curious.

One is Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA), who has been one of the most aggressive members during committee hearings. He was part of one of the most compelling exchanges to date, with former ATF Special Agent in Charge, William Newell.

The other congressman, whose refusal to commit may be easier to explain - especially if the Trayvon Martin case is a factor - is Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL). Not only is Mack's district in the state where Trayvon was killed but he's in the middle of a tight Senate race with incumbent Bill Nelson. The irony is that if such considerations are behind his silence, he's probably the wrong guy for the job.

What makes Mack's silence even more disturbing is an exchange he had with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton back in October. At a House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing, Mack exposed Clinton's role in Fast and Furious by pointing out that if the State Department issued the DOJ a waiver to allow guns to cross the border into Mexico, Hillary was on the hook. If the DOJ did so without getting such a waiver, Holder was on the hook. To this day, there appears to have been ZERO follow-up but what it does reveal is that Mack knows how deep this scandal goes and he appears to be playing politics instead of doing the right thing.

Here is that exchange:

If the Fast and Furious investigation ends up going nowhere, it'd be like having the biggest fish in the lake on your line, knowing it, and cutting it loose before you land it. Then, despite doing so, you continue to fish.

What's the point?

If the investigation dies, the Oversight Committee should just shut its doors.

Either way, we're getting much closer to learning why John Boehner cries so much:

Video Report: Another Black on White Hate Crime

A white female was behind a car occupied by at least three blacks (two females, one male) at a McDonald's drive-thru. When she noticed trash being thrown out of the car in front of her, the white female voiced her disapproval, which prompted an assault, during which she was allegedly called a 'white b*tch.'

The best part? Despite a surveillance camera being pointed directly at the spot where the hate crime took place, police say the attack wasn't caught on tape and they won't release it.

Is Romney really considering a Pro-choice, tax-raising Governor as his Running Mate?

It's a bit too early to get worked up about this but the mere fact that a pro-choice, tax-hiking Governor is even being remotely considered as Romney's running mate is disturbing. If team Romney does select someone like Nevada's Brian Sandoval, it will communicate a 'have your cake and eat it too' attitude on steroids.

There's a children's story about a dog with a bone who sees his reflection in the water. Thinking it's another dog with another bone, he tries to get it. In attempting to do so, he loses the one in his mouth. Romney very well could be that dog if he were to choose a 'mini-Mitt.' It will mean that he's an ideologue who thinks he can have whatever he wants and conservatives will still vote for him because the anti-Obama sentiment is so strong.

Via Daily Caller:
Along with being relatively new and unvetted, he (Sandoval) is pro-choice; and he has raised taxes twice during his short time as governor. Those are deal breakers, according to several Republican strategists.

“I just don’t see with his rumored pro-choice stance how he fits into the equation,” Republican strategist Chuck Warren told The Daily Caller. “Great governor, superb future, but I think that one policy position makes him untenable for [the Republican] evangelical base.”

“The pluses of Sandoval: he’s in a key state, he’s a governor, and he’s Hispanic, three huge considerations of the Romney team,” added Republican strategist Phillip Stutts. “The downside is he recently had to raise taxes,” something the conservative electorate would not like.

Trey Hardin, another Republican strategist, said Sandoval would be a poor choice for Romney.
Again, reading that, you're left with the impression that Sandoval is an unlikely choice but that he's even being looked at when the base is already disillusioned with Romney only validates the concerns of conservatives. The opening two stanzas of the Caller's piece seem to indicate that a door to this possibility is open, at least to some degree:
Conventional wisdom among Mitt Romney VP-watchers is that the presumptive GOP nominee should pick a running mate who is experienced and rather boring, someone who would neither embarrass him nor outshine him.

Just two years into his first term as Nevada governor, Brian Sandoval doesn’t exactly fit that bill. But a source familiar with the proceedings said not to count Sandoval out.
We're already staring at an election that is far too close for one simple reason: Romney is a liberal Republican who doesn't energize the base. That was McCain's problem and it all changed when he picked Sarah Palin. In fact, he wouldn't go anywhere without her on the campaign trail because he knew that by himself, his crowds would be miniscule. With her, they were enormous.

To be fair, Romney has an advantage McCain didn't have. Obama-mania has dried up but his chances go up, not down, if he were to pick an energizing conservative like Palin.

If Romney doesn't balance the ticket with a strong conservative, his chances of beating Obama will decrease, regardless of how strong the anti-Obama sentiment is.


Video: Pastor's solution for homosexuality involves electrified fences

Uh, can I be against homosexuality without agreeing with this pastor from North Carolina? This is the kind of reaction Obama was probably hoping for when he came out in support of gay marriage.

Via Charlotte's CBS affiliate:

**UPDATE** For anyone who thinks it ridiculous that Obama would welcome this kind of reaction, consider this excerpt from page 117 of Rules for Radicals, the book penned by his hero, Saul Alinsky:
"An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent... He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. Out of this mechanism, a new community organization arises....
     "The job then is getting the people to move, to act, to participate; in short, to develop and harness the necessary power to effectively conflict with the prevailing patterns and change them. When those prominent in the status quo turn and label you an 'agitator' they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict."
Some will argue that such an excerpt is actually talking about the agitation of forces who share his position but in reality, if conflict is the ultimate goal, does it really matter who you agitate? This may also go a long way in explaining why Obama came out for gay marriage despite it being politically untenable.

Indonesian Muslims pelt Christians with Sewage and Garbage

Is it me or are the Muslims taking their cues (and vice versa) from the Occupy Wall Street crowd?

Via the Jakarta Post (h/t GWP):
An angry mob once again assaulted the members of the Congregation of Batak Protestant Churches (HKBP) Filadelfia on Sunday morning as the parishioners were trying to attend their house of worship – the second attack within a week.

The congregation was reportedly entering their church, located on Jejalen Raya village in Bekasi, West Java, at around 9 a.m. when a group of people suddenly began throwing objects at them.

“They threw mineral water in plastic cups, mud, rotten eggs and water from drainage ditches at us. Some of them were still harassing parishioners after the congregation had already dispersed,” HKBP Filadelfia Rev. Palti Panjaitan told The Jakarta Post.

He added that the plastic cups that were thrown by the crowd also hit Bekasi Police chief Sr. Comr. Wahyu Hadiningrat and Bekasi Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) chief Agus Rismanto, whose members were unsuccessfully trying to provide safety.
So the intolerant Christians who were minding their own business were pelted with sewage by the tolerant Muslims. Reminds me of Isaiah 5:20.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

And the mainstream media continues to channel Baghdad Bob.

CBS Finally reports on Christian Persecution in Egypt

As Lebanon opened its country to Islam, Christians were persecuted. When Hamas was elected to power in Gaza, Christians were persecuted. When Saddam was overthrown in Iraq, Christians suffered. As the Syrian rebels al-Qaeda and Hamas fights against Bashar al-Assad, they are persecuting Christians. When Mubarak was overthrown in Egypt, the Christians began to suffer. Many of us knew this would happen. Yet, the liberal media that championed the 'Arab Spring' was disinterested. It was journalistic malpractice that should have torpedoed their credibility with the masses.

Instead, they embarrassingly continue to hold a large media megaphone and now, well over a year after Egypt fell, CBS actually discovers Christian persecution in Egypt.

Via NewsBusters:
Sunday's CBS Evening News refreshingly spotlighted the continuing persecution of the Coptic Christians in Egypt, an ongoing story that the Big Three networks have largely ignored for months. Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer zeroed in on the uncertain future for the religious minority as the country gears for a rare election: "[Egypt's] Christians are deeply worried....Two of the frontrunners in the race with a realistic chance of winning are deeply devout Islamists."

The last time CBS reported on the anti-Christian violence in Egypt was a news brief on the October 9, 2011 edition of Evening News, according to a Nexis search. Since January 2011, ABC, NBC, and CBS's morning and evening newscasts have only mentioned the issue six times.

Anchor Jeff Glor introduced Palmer's report by noting that "Egyptians vote this week in the first free presidential election in six decades. There are thirteen candidates running from all over the political spectrum. But Elizabeth Palmer reports tonight Egypt's largest minority fears their situation may go from bad to worse."

The correspondent began with footage of a Christian worship service in Cairo, stating that "the Coptic Christian ritual is ancient and familiar. But outside the door, Egypt now feels unwelcoming and unsafe. Last May, a Coptic church was set on fire in Cairo. Locals blamed Muslims in the neighborhood. And then, in October, Christians protesting the destruction of another church were mowed down by military vehicles."
Suddenly, the mainstream media - the supposed beacon of news and information - has discovered something it should have discovered a year and a half ago.

CBS didn't even wake up after one of its own female reporters - Lara Logan - suffered an extremely violent sexual assault at the hands of a mob of celebratory Islamists who shouted, "Jew! Jew! Jew!"

What the liberal western media isn't doing is criminal.

Washington Post goes there: Mormonism's Mountain Meadows Massacre

Has anyone noticed that Mormon Harry Reid has been completely silent as the liberal media attacks his religion? We can only infer one thing from his silence. He values his party more than he values his faith. Otherwise, he would be defending Mitt Romney.

There is a Category 5 Hurricane headed for the Mormon church and the Republican establishment has hitched its wagons to a guy who has no shudders up. Folks, this is just the beginning. The left has plenty of ammunition in its arsenal when it comes to Romney's religion and Romney is not prepared for what's coming. Here is a small sampling of what's coming.

Via the Washington Post:
On the wildflower-studded slopes of the Ozarks, where memories run long and family ties run thick, a little-known and long-ago chapter of history still simmers.

On Sept. 11, 1857, a wagon train from this part of Arkansas met with a gruesome fate in Utah, where most of the travelers were slaughtered by a Mormon militia in an episode known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Hundreds of the victims’ descendants still populate these hills and commemorate the killings, which they have come to call “the first 9/11.”

Many of the locals grew up hearing denunciations of Mormonism from the pulpit on Sundays, and tales of the massacre from older relatives who considered Mormons “evil.” 
“There have been Fancher family reunions for 150 years, and the massacre comes up at every one of them,” said Scott Fancher, 58, who traces his lineage back to 26 members of the wagon train, which was known as the Fancher-Baker party. “The more whiskey we drunk, the more resentful we got.” 
There aren’t many places in America more likely to be suspicious of Mormonism — and potentially more problematic for Mitt Romney, who is seeking to become the country’s first Mormon president. Not only do many here retain a personal antipathy toward the religion and its followers, but they also tend to be Christian evangelicals, many of whom view Mormonism as a cult.
Mormons perpetrated America's "first 9/11"? In fairness, Mormonism's founder - Joseph Smith - did liken himself to Islam's prophet:
“I will be to this generation a second Mohammed, whose motto in treating for peace was 'the Alcoran [Koran] or the Sword.' So shall it eventually be with us.”
The bigger story here is the mainstream media's steady drip, drip, drip of Mormon stories until something sticks to Romney.

Just wait. The spigot is begging to be turned on.

Read it all.

POLITICO: Mormonism WILL be an issue

Mitt Romney garnered an overwhelming majority of the Mormon vote during the primaries. As a result, the Mormon church may have to batten down the hatches because a political hurricane is about to hit Utah. The establishment had blinders on and didn't pay attention to the consequences of its insistence that Romney get the nomination. Dylan Byers writes that the hurricane is coming.

Mormonism is going to be an issue this election season. It's only a question of when.

Even if Mitt Romney doesn't address it, even if President Obama doesn't address it, even if the DNC and the Super PACs don't address it, the media will. And when they do it is almost certain to drive the news cycle.

I'm not talking about Romney's personal history -- or his family's history -- in the Mormon Church, which is something that has already come up in various stories on cable news and made the front page of a few papers. I’m talking about a national conversation about the Mormon faith, including its past practice of polygamy (which was renounced by the church in the 19th century) and its exclusion of African Americans from the priesthood (until 1978).. That sort of thing.
Back in January, Rush Limbaugh played a clip of Donna Brazile after a debate after which she said that Romney's performance was 'good' for the Democrats because his nomination gives Obama the best chance. Correctly, Limbaugh pointed out that Brazile spoke too soon. Though she told the truth, she wasn't supposed to yet.

What Limbaugh didn't discuss at the time was one of the biggest reasons the Democrats want to face Romney; they see his religion as a huge weakness, something he isn't prepared to discuss or defend.

Geraldo came up empty when Crump said that Mark Zuckerberg wears a hoodie too.

Audio: An Obam-automaton teacher Implodes

The Barack Obama Truth Squad is going to have to start pulling double shifts because they're starting to lose high school students who are actually thinking for themselves. This argument started when the subject of the Washington Post's hit piece on Mitt Romney bullying someone in high school came up in a classroom at Rowan-Saulisbury high school in North Carolina.

The Teacher (a black female) can be heard defending Obama when a student makes reference to the president's audio book in which he describes bullying a young girl. The teacher went off and decided to hold on to her completely illogical argument. Basically, the student had no right - according to the teacher - to question Obama's past bullying compared to Romney's because, well, Obama is president and Romney isn't.

Listen to a high school teacher get 'schooled' by her students...

Washington Times: Hillary will be Obama's 2012 VP

Are you ready for two Alinsky-ites in the White House? If Joseph Curl is right - and he seems more than just a little confident - Hillary Clinton is poised to unseat Joe "Gay Marriage gaffe" Biden as Obama's running mate come November.

Via Washington Times:
Show of hands: Who here still thinks Vice President Joseph R. Biden will be on the 2012 ticket?

Really? All of you? So wrong. The Great One, Sir Barack Hussein Obama, will replace the bumbling, buffoonish Mr. Biden with Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, maybe at the Democratic convention, maybe just before, in a last-ditch effort to win re-election.

The wild and crazy move is all the talk outside the Beltway. One state Democratic leader even tells me the bumper stickers are already printed, sitting in a warehouse in (where else?) Little Rock, Ark. Another party bigwig says she is “99.9 percent sure” the increasingly desperate president planned the whole thing from the beginning. (“C’mon, Hill, be Secretary of State for one term and I’ll make you veep the next!”)

Step back a minute: What does the president get from keeping Punxsutawney Putz on the ticket? Zippy the chimp. But if he bails on Mr. Biden, picks a woman — bam, base enthusiasm goes through the roof, women come out of the woodwork to vote (for Mrs. Clinton, not for Mr. Obama), and it’s 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for another four years. (Plus, Joe becomes Secretary of State, because, really now, he wouldn’t know what to do if he wasn’t living off the government teat, would he?)

Back to the president’s desperation. As The Washington Times laid out last week, Mr. Obama’s re-election is no lock. “Many models show President Obama with a likely base of 252 electoral votes out of the 270 needed to win,” the paper said. Nice lead. He’s got a hold of the West Coast, the Northeast minus New Hampshire, plus most likely Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Hawaii (although some of those are still considered in play).
Let's face it. The Republican Party has muscled through a John McCain redux candidate who is tone deaf to when it comes to picking an energizing conservative as his running mate. Romney is likely to pick a "Mini-Mitt" at a time when Curl says Obama is ready to pick the Democrats' Sarah Palin.

This would not surprise me in the least.

Proof Mormonism will be on the table; Socialist Axelrod says it won't be

Leftists are such consistent liars that they actually tell you the truth. All you have to do is believe the exact opposite of what they say. The latest example comes from Obama senior adviser David Axelrod, who says Mormonism will be 'off the table.' Bet the other way and you have a winner.

Via the National Journal:
As religion becomes an ever-more significant issue on the campaign trail, Mitt Romney's Mormonism will be off-limits as a subject for the opposition, Obama campaign advisor David Axelrod said on Sunday.

"We've said that's not fair game," he said on CNN's State of the Union. When asked whether the campaign "repudiate[s] the idea that Mormonism should be on the table" this election season, Axelrod insisted: "absolutely."

He added, however, that Romney should to come out stronger against attacks on Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. A recent GOP ad proposal unearthed by the New York Times that aimed to focus in on Obama's relationship with the pastor brought the racially-charged issue to the forefront of the campaign this week.  While Romney repudiated the ad, Axelrod and he wasn't vehement enough in his disapproval.
Lest we forget that it was Mr. Axelrod who inadvertently tweeted a story about how Mormon churches prevented menstruating women from participating in proxy baptisms to all of his followers. That tweet was quickly deleted.

Actually, you don't even need to wait to see how this one plays out. Axelrod is already lying. As a propaganda arm of the White House, MSNBC has already gone after Mormonism multiple times.

Video: CBN's Erik Stakelbeck gives College Students the spankings they didn't get as children

There's something ironically creepy about leftists taping their own mouths shut in the name of free speech but that's what they do; they're leftists. CBN's Erik Stakelbeck was speaking at the University of Portland and the pro-Palestinian crowd had their mouths taped shut with various messages on the tape. However, when they decided to walk out like a pack of lemmings, Stakelbeck's pleas for someone to debate him fell on deaf ears (perhaps stuffed with tape).

At the end of this first clip, one woman finally answers the cameraman after several attempts to get the protesters to respond. When asked why she wouldn't debate Stakelbeck, she said, "because we don't debate racists."

Busted: Lesbians charged with painting threats on their own Garage

There is a reason why police in Colorado decided to arrest the two lesbians who claim someone spray painted, 'Kill the Gay' (I think the painters ran out of room for the 's') on their garage door. Primarily, because when things like this happen, the crime is very often committed by those who claim to be victims; we see it at OWS all the time. There was also a rash of such behavior back in 2009, which you can check out here.

These are bizarre traits in the left wing mind. When I had an apartment in Florida, a mixed-race couple (woman black, man white) called the local news and police out to their place because 'Ni***r lover' was spray painted on their front door. It didn't take long to determine who did it - the residents.

Anyway, in this case, both lesbians were arrested and refused to submit to lie detector tests. They also had their hands scanned for spray paint residue.

Campaign 2012: Black Liberation Theology vs. Mormonism

On May 16th, as it was being learned that Romney's Super PAC was preparing to go after Obama using Jeremiah Wright, CNN's Roland Martin said: that if "...the GOP wants to do that, then guess what? You're now putting Mormonism on the table."

Guess what else? It doesn't matter whether Romney repudiates the Super PAC for considering an anti-Jeremiah Wright campaign. The liberal media is already going after Romney over Mormonism despite what he says about any proposed ad campaign. Note the straw man here. MSNBC's Ed Schultz pits Mormonism against Jeremiah Wright and Black Liberation Theology anyway.

This is exactly what the left wants and frankly, Romney isn't the least bit prepared for it. If he thinks taking Jeremiah Wright off the table is going to take Mormonism off the table, he's wrong. The left has already put it on the table in response to the sheer notion that the Romney Super PAC would even consider a Jeremiah Wright campaign.

Here is an exchange moderated by Schultz between conservative talk show host Armstrong Williams and Michael Eric Dyson. Note that Williams says Romney repudiated the Super PAC and this should be a dead issue. Schultz and Dyson don't seem to care about that much.

Again, the liberal media sees Mormonism as Romney's biggest weak spot and they're going to go after him full boar over it. They're using the prospect of a Jeremiah Wright campaign as their green light.

That Lame 60 Minutes piece on Fethullah Gulen missed something else too

If you watched the 60 Minutes piece last week on Turkish Imam Fethullah Gulen, you know how lame it was. There was only a cursory mention of why people are so concerned and the report concluded that there was nothing to be alarmed about. If you haven't yet seen it, take a look; it's bad:

There was another aspect to the story that 'Leafblower Leslie' didn't even look into and it has to do with the connections of a sitting U.S. Congressman Bob Filner (D-CA) to the Gulenist movement. If you believe Leslie, that's no big deal either. If you know the truth about Gulen, it's a very big deal.

This is cross-posted at

The Case of Democratic Congressman Bob Filner and the Gulenist movement

This entry is a separate follow-up to this post from last week. In particular, it focuses on the ties of Democratic Congressman Bob Filner (CA-51) - who is currently running for mayor of San Diego - to the Fethullah Gulen movement as well as the degree to which he is beholden to that movement. The 60 Minutes piece by 'Leafblower' Leslie didn't hit on this disturbing connection either.

First of all, Bob Filner is one of 70 Congressmen who was registered with the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) Caucus in 2009.

Earlier this month, the San Diego Reader reported on Filner's trip to Turkey in 2010, which was paid for by a group known as the Pacifica Institute, an entity with extremely close ties to the Gulenist movement. The Reader also reported that Filner took another trip courtesy of Pacifica in 2011 that totaled $3700 according to Filner's filing.

In 2009, Pacifica sponsored the Gulen Conference at USC in Los Angeles.

There are countless examples of Filner's ties to Gulenist-connected groups, to include his appearance at and participation in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Turkish American Alliance upon returning from his Pacifica-sponsored trip. Yes, Pacifica is listed as a member organization of the TAA. Ok, so Gulenist-connected groups have bought influence with a member of the
Democratic Socialists of America
communist caucus, which further validates Rep. Allen West's concerns.

How about some more background on Filner? As a Democrat who is a member of the DSA, would his father's communist leanings be relevant? According to the Pittsburgh Press in 1942, Joseph Filner was secretary of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) in Pittsburgh, PA. Even the New York Times wrote in 1990 that the elder Filner sold Soviet products in the United States for 35 years.

So the son of a leader in the CPUSA is a
Communist Democrat who is connected with and has ties to Gulenist groups.

That would mean that Communist leftists are working with Islamists. Really? That is a shocker!

Joe McCarthy's legacy seems to be aging much better than what the communist left - to include the liberal media - would have us believe. Speaking of the liberal media, 'Leafblower Leslie' didn't cover any of this in her 60 Minutes report on Gulen.

But she did get to ride a leaf blower-powered hovercraft.

House Republican Freshmen throwing down gauntlet with Boehner?

It's becoming increasingly more difficult for House Speaker John Boehner to convince people he is not blocking  the Fast and Furious contempt citation Darrell Issa has been threatening to issue to Eric Holder.  It's become a self-evident truth and some House Republican freshman have decided to call Boehner out on it.

Via Roll Call:
Six freshman members of the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday called on GOP leadership to bring a contempt of Congress resolution against Attorney General Eric Holder to the House floor, charging he has “thwarted and obstructed” Congress’ efforts to conduct Congressional oversight of the "Operation Fast and Furious" gun-running program.

In a letter to Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.); Reps. Sandy Adams (Fla.), Ben Quayle (Ariz.), Tim Griffin (Ark.), Dennis Ross (Fla.), Tom Marino (Pa.) and Trey Gowdy (S.C.) argued that “the House of Representatives has seen its proper oversight function thwarted and obstructed. It's time for the House to formally recognize the obvious — that Attorney General Holder has not and will not cooperate with the legitimate investigation launched by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and is therefore in contempt of Congress.”
Gowdy is exhibiting true leadership. Back on April 26th, he told Greta that Holder would be held accountable - with a contempt order - no later than Memorial Day. His word is on the line. If he's mad at Boehner now, wait until Memorial Day passes without that contempt order being issued.

Fast forward to the 4:05 mark:

Here we go: Mitt Romney, Jeremiah Wright, and the John McCain Redux

With all of these audio recordings of Jeremiah Wright just hanging out there like a big fat hanging curveball approaching the conservative wheelhouse, Mitt Romney is saying he would rather not swing and hope the umpire says it's out of the strike zone. Just like McCain in 2008, Romney does not want to make Jeremiah Wright an issue. In fact, he is repudiating the efforts of a Super PAC to wage a Jeremiah Wright ad campaign.

Welcome to the reason why the liberal media wanted Mitt Romney to be the nominee. They know that once Mormonism becomes an issue in the campaign, Romney can be bludgeoned with it. Hannity makes the very valid point here that he wants Romney to go after Obama like he went after Gingrich.

However, throughout the Republican primary, Hannity stayed away from endorsing any candidate and did not go after Romney despite all indications that Romney would behave just like this if he got the nomination. Perhaps Sean should have been more vocal in his opposition to Mitt (assuming that wasn't his preference).

Via MediaIte:

Here is Hannity on his television show, later,

Here is McCain in 2008 behaving just like Romney appears to be now:

This is as good a reason as any why Romney doesn't want to go after Jeremiah Wright. One day prior to Romney's repudiation of the idea, CNN's Roland Martin fired a liberal shot across the bow, saying that if Romney wants to bring up Wright, Mormonism will be on the table.

Obama's Literary Agent: This Kenyan Birth line is no big deal; just a mistake

Yesterday, Breitbart dropped a bit of a Birther bombshell when it posted images from a booklet printed by Barack Obama's literary agent back in 1991. In that booklet, Obama's bio said he was "born in Kenya." Of course, if that were true, then the Birth Certificate Obama showed to the world last year is fraudulent because it said he was born in Hawaii. Therefore, a lie has taken place somewhere but who has the most to lose?

Barack Obama does, obviously. As such, does anyone expect him to admit giving the literary agent a falsified bio (or authorizing it) that showed his birthplace being outside the United States? No way. Does that not leave the literary agent on the hook for having to explain away an incorrect bio? That's what has just happened. However, she's not admitting to publishing intentionally falsified information. Instead, it's being called a 'fact checking error.'


Here is the statement released by Miriam Goderich via Political Wire (h/t Breitbart):
"You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya.  This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time.  There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii.  I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."
Brouhaha? If (that's IF) Goderich were an unrepentant liar, that's exactly the kind of response you would expect. When an unrepentant liar is caught, the accuser is almost always diminished or smeared by the person caught.

Now, Breitbart is reporting that not only did Obama's bio remain unchanged relative to a Kenyan birth all the way to 2007 but that it was updated at least four times between 1991-2007 without ever changing the place of his birth.

Obama presented a Birth Certificate that says he was born in Hawaii. His literary agent published a bio (updated four times) for sixteen years that said he was born in Kenya. As one can expect, Obama is not the one who is going to take the fall, Goderich is.

And she's in the process of doing so... Sort of.

Roland Martin: If Jeremiah Wright fair game, so is Mormonism

Make no mistake. One of the reasons the liberal media wanted Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee was because of his religion. In this exchange, note CNN's Roland Martin. Aside from saying Republicans need to stay away from the Jeremiah Wright issue because it won't work (if that's true, why wouldn't Martin want Republicans to do it?), Martin says if Obama's religious history is fair game, so is Mitt Romney's.

1984 Elizabeth Warren Cookbook: "Pow Wow Chow"

Elizabeth Warren, the self-beleaguered Democrat challenging Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, seems to be watching her American Indian claims coming back to bite her in a major way. Speaking of bites, the latest example comes in the form of her 1984 cookbook that has a rather insensitive (racist) title based on the standard set by the politically correct left wing.

Via the Boston Herald:
Elizabeth Warren was touting her claim of Cherokee heritage as early as 1984, according to a cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” edited by her cousin that includes Warren’s recipes for a savory crab omelet and spicy barbecued beans. 

The cookbook, edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey, is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families,” according to the introduction in a copy obtained by the Herald. 
Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. Warren is not listed as an official member of the Cherokee tribe and she has been unable thus far to document her claim of any Native American heritage. 

She offered a recipe on herbed tomatoes, touting them as a “great accompaniment to a plain meat and potatoes meal!” She also included a crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing dish and a Mexican oatmeal soup that included oats, onions, tomatoes and chicken broth.
Let's see, using the standard of the left, Elizabeth Warren is now a racist American Indian impersonator who owes the Cherokees reparations for her great-great-great grandfather's role in rounding up Cherokees during the 'Trail of Tears' and she might now be on the hook for using her faux American Indian heritage to sell cookbooks under a the faulty premise that she is part Cherokee.

It might be time for her to quit while she's behind.

Wow! Obama-appointed Judge blocks the NDAA

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed into law by Barack Obama on New Year's Eve has been the source of quite a bit of alarm as it allows the military to detain U.S. citizens indefinitely, without charge. It's one area where the Ron Pauliens are rightfully concerned.

Quite amazingly, an Obama-appointed judge in Manhattan has blocked the law until Congress clears up the gray areas. Also worthy of note is that one of the plaintiffs who sued Obama in this case is a very left wing writer, Christopher Hedges.

Via Bloomberg:
Opponents of a U.S. law they claim may subject them to indefinite military detention for activities including news reporting and political activism persuaded a federal judge to temporarily block the measure.

U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan yesterday ruled in favor of a group of writers and activists who sued President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the Defense Department, claiming a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law Dec. 31, puts them in fear that they could be arrested and held by U.S. armed forces.

The complaint was filed Jan. 13 by a group including former New York Times reporter Christopher Hedges. The plaintiffs contend a section of the law allows for detention of citizens and permanent residents taken into custody in the U.S. on “suspicion of providing substantial support” to people engaged in hostilities against the U.S., such as al-Qaeda.

“The statute at issue places the public at undue risk of having their speech chilled for the purported protection from al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and ‘associated forces’ - i.e., ‘foreign terrorist organizations,’” Forrest said in an opinion yesterday. “The vagueness of Section 1021 does not allow the average citizen, or even the government itself, to understand with the type of definiteness to which our citizens are entitled, or what conduct comes within its scope.”
Another interesting aspect was that the government didn't put up any type of defense:
The plaintiffs claim Section 1021 is vague and can be read to authorize their detention based on speech and associations that are protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Hedges and two other plaintiffs testified in a hearing before Forrest in March, the judge said. A fourth plaintiff submitted a sworn declaration. The government put on no evidence, Forrest said.
The government doesn't appear to be either willing or able to adequately explain how the provision prevents average American citizens from being detained:
In her opinion, Forrest said the government declined to say that the activities of Hedges and the other defendants don’t fall under the provision. Forrest held a hearing in March at which government lawyers didn’t call any witnesses or present evidence, according to the judge. The government did cross- examine the plaintiffs who testified and submitted legal arguments.
Regardless of your ideology, the NDAA, as it is currently written, allows for the detention of political prisoners, which should never happen in the U.S. One way to help solve this problem would be to adequately identify the real enemies of America, which still has not been done.
