Video: Barack, Who's Your Father?

This is basically a continuation from this post but here is Jerry McGlothlin of CleanTV giving his take on the film to be released this July entitled, "Dreams From my REAL Father," which claims to have evidence that Barack Obama's biological father was Frank Marshall Davis.

Again, and quite hypothetical, if Davis was Obama's father, any and all Birth Certificates presented by Obama are necessarily fraudulent because of who's identified as his father on those Certificates.

Via CleanTV:

Here is the trailer of the film.

***UPDATE*** Thought this might be a good video to add. It's a news report from a CBS 5 affiliate in Arizona that covered Sheriff Joe Arpaio's press conference on March 1st at which he charged that there is probable cause that the Birth Certificate Obama produced last year is fraudulent. Regardless of where you come down on the Birther argument, Arpaio's lead investigator, Mike Zullo makes a compelling case that the document was forged, created digitally.

Again, the question of last year's document being forged is completely separate from the charge that Obama was born in Kenya, which is a debate I've generally stayed away from.

Report: Boehner giving Issa the green light to issue Holder Contempt order

This all started with a Los Angeles Times story this morning that alleges Darrell Issa has been given the green light by House Speaker John Boehner to issue the long overdue contempt citation for Eric Holder relative to documents the DOJ has been refusing to relinquish. The allegation made by the LA Times is quite specific and includes mention of a 48-page document that is being drafted by Issa's team. Also take note of the reference to John Boehner's involvement.

Via LAT:
Republican House leaders have drafted a proposed contempt of Congress citation against Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. in which they charge that he and his Justice Department have repeatedly "obstructed and slowed" the Capitol Hill investigation into the ATF's flawed Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation.

The 48-page draft citation is being drawn up by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Top committee officials recently met for most of a day in the House speaker's office and were given the green light to proceed toward a contempt citation, according to sources who declined to be identified.

If adopted by the GOP-led House, the contempt resolution would be sent to the U.S. attorney's office in Washington or perhaps an independent counsel in an attempt to force the Justice Department to provide tens of thousands of internal documents to the committee.
If that report is true about Boehner giving Issa "the green light," then that seems to indicate that, to this point, Issa had the red light. Again, whenever the issue came up that Boehner had put the leash on Issa when it came to going after Holder, both camps denied it. If this report is correct, it would seem to indicate that reports of Boehner's involvement in restraining Issa were correct as well.

Here is Issa being interviewed by Fox's Megyn Kelly. Take note that Issa refuses to concede or deny that the Los Angeles Times article is accurate.

Interestingly, this news about Boehner giving the green light to Darrell Issa comes out on the same day the House Speaker went on a righteous rant on the floor of the House. It's ABOUT TIME! A bigger critic of John Boehner you will not find but this was good. My one critique is the word he used at the end of this speech to describe Obama's tactics didn't seem to fit. He angrily referred to those tactics as "silly" and that word didn't quite capture the moment. Otherwise, a good rant.

Is Boehner finally getting fed up? I hope so. I've seen him go off like this before but it always seems to be when he's in the minority and is powerless.

Video: Lying Press Secretary says, 'I never lie'

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney (Barker) spoke at a scholarship luncheon recently and told a a lie to the young crowd in attendance. He said, "I never lie."

Is it me or was Mr. Carney short of breath when he said that? Isn't that a sign of lying?

Karl Rove's Electoral Map and the Establishment's Thick Head

This blogger met his Karl Rove saturation point a long time ago but there's one thing that can be said for Bush's former brain; he knows his numbers. On many an election night, Rove has calculated, using his white board before the polls close and somehow gets it right far more often than not, even in tight races.

That's one reason why Republicans should take a serious look at this electoral map from Rove. Granted, the Obama / Romney campaign is just getting underway but the Republican establishment is staring at a very cold, hard reality that it repeatedly is unwilling to accept. That reality is that RINOs don't win general elections. Actually, calling Romney a RINO is an insult to RINOs who actually like to be perceived as being mildly conservative.

Four years of Obama should be a slam dunk for any Republican, unless that Republican is a liberal with an "R" next to his name, which is what we have this year.

That map is actually very similar to what the RCP electoral map from a couple of weeks ago showed. when you add up Rove's calculation of "Solid Romney" and "Leans Romney," you get 172; RCP shows 170. Rove's "Solid Obama" and "Leans Obama" is 284, actually worse for Romney than RCP calculated.

Another reason why RINOs don't win general elections has to do with inspiration. There are two critical motivations that drive voters to the polls. They need to be motivated to vote against someone and they need to be motivated to vote for someone. The election of 2008 demonstrated this perfectly.

Conservative voters didn't want Obama at all; they didn't want RINO McCain either but, hey, it was McCain's turn. Then, as now, the likely thinking was that the anti-Obama sentiment may have been strong enough to put a progressive Republican in the White House. Obama's campaign was very successful in tying McCain to George W. Bush, a president that tacked far left in his second term. See how destructive being a moderate Republican can be? It had the makings of an Obama blowout until McCain selected conservative darling, Sarah Palin. She gave conservative voters a reason to vote for McCain. If you remember, McCain rarely went to campaign stops without Palin because he knew she brought out the crowds.

In fact, the Palin selection actually put McCain ahead of Obama until the mortgage crisis reached critical mass in September; McCain suspended his campaign so he could go to Washington and show his leadership abilities; he threw up a goose egg. It was a miscalculation from which he would never recover because it made him look inept, as he did nothing of any real quantifiable value.

In 2012, both Rove and RCP show Romney getting 170 and 172 electoral votes, respectively. McCain got 173 in 2008. After four years of Obama, that number for any Republican nominee should be significantly greater. With Romney, it's no different right now. The reason is simple. McCain was a RINO and so is Romney. Again, remember, Palin made it closer than it otherwise would have been had McCain gone with a safe, establishment VP choice. Here's the electoral map of the 2008 results:

In 2012, the Republican Party doesn't really need to worry about conservative voters being motivated to vote against Obama but it should be VERY worried about those voters not being motivated to vote for Romney; they're not.

It's as if the establishment is banking on anti-Obama sentiment being so strong that it can compensate for the lack of inspiration for Romney while being able to prove all the skeptics wrong about moderates not being electable.

That's a dangerous game and it's one the establishment very well could lose... again.

In preparation for a possible Romney loss, you might as well start thinking about how to make lemonade.
