My record is so horribly indefensible, I know, I will run against Almighty God and the eternal truth of His Natural Law which the founder fathers recognized in The Declaration of Independence as being necessary for America's survival.

Doesn't sound like a winner to me!

But such are the diabolic thoughts of the morally bankrupt Obama Administration led by a narcissistic delusional megalomaniac who fancies himself as a god in the worst tradition of Caligula!

Obama is a moral cretin who trashes the Natural Law of Almighty God with the common good summarily trashed at his whim.  As such, he's owed nothing but contempt for his "in-your-face-promotion" of sexual perversion under force of unjust law, which, in case the Obamunists aren't aware of it, is causing an already angry electorate to become more so by firming up their resolve to send Obama and his minions packing in November!

How Our “Gay President” Learned About Sex

Cliff Kincaid  —   May 14, 2012



Barack Obama is being presented as America’s first gay president by Newsweek, which glorifies his decision to recognize same-sex marriage. The Newsweek cover story will serve a purpose other than generating interest in a magazine that has been losing circulation and advertising revenue if it is viewed as an opportunity to finally discuss the taboo subject of Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. This controversial figure, who drank heavily and smoked dope, wrote a pornographic novel in which the author declared, “under certain circumstances I am bisexual,” and discussed having sex with a young girl named “Anne.”
Despite Obama’s ABC News interview, where he claimed coming around on the issue in part because of conversations about homosexuals with his young daughters, Davis is the key to understanding Obama. Davis influenced Obama from ages 10 to 18, his critical growing-up years in Hawaii. Obama admits getting “hard-earned knowledge” from Davis.
The opportunity to finally discuss Davis is also at hand because Washington Post columnist and ombudsman Patrick Pexton, in an effort to justify the paper’s story about Mitt Romney allegedly bullying a kid in high school, notes that the paper’s associate editor and a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, David Maraniss, wrote “a lengthy piece on Obama’s formative years in Hawaii, including his high school years at the prestigious Punahou School.”
He is clearly suggesting that Obama’s early years have been sufficiently covered by the Post. But note Pexton’s use of the word “lengthy” rather than “accurate” or “complete.” A journalist can write a lot of words without touching on the most relevant facts.
Once again, Pexton has failed in his role as the “ombudsman,” or consumer advocate, for the readers of the Post. He should have taken Maraniss to task for his cover-up of Obama’s communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis. But Pexton didn’t want to take on one of the paper’s prize-winning journalists for what is clearly one of the most dishonest pieces of journalism ever published about a presidential candidate.
Pexton referred to the 10,000-word Maraniss piece, “Though Obama Had to Leave to Find Himself, It Is Hawaii That Made His Rise Possible,” which was published on August 22, 2008.

Maraniss could have broken the story of Frank Marshall Davis wide open for a public eager to learn everything about Obama. Instead, Maraniss completely ignored the role of Davis, a member of the Soviet-funded Communist Party who was under surveillance by the FBI for 19 years.
The treatment of Davis is important because Maraniss has written a new biography, Barack Obama: The Story, which is being released on June 19. It will undoubtedly be seen by the mainstream media as the definitive word on Obama.
But considering how Maraniss completely omitted Davis’s influence over Obama in that 2008 article, it can be anticipated that the new book will also be a whitewash. One of the early “revelations” from the book is said to be that an Obama girlfriend was actually a “composite” of different people. But Frank Marshall Davis was real, not a composite character.

Remember that Obama had referred to Davis as just “Frank” in his book, Dreams from My Father. We confirmed the story about the identity of “Frank” on February 18, 2008.
Paul Kengor, author of a new book on Davis, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, the Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, has written a column, “What About Obama’s High School Years?,” in which he criticizes Maraniss for the cover-up of Davis and notes that Obama had mentioned “Frank” by name 22 times in his memoir Dreams from My Father.

Hence, “Frank” obviously had a big impact on Obama, by his own admission, as he was growing up in Hawaii.
In a damage control exercise, the Obama campaign in 2008 acknowledged that “Frank” was Davis, but insisted that he was just a black civil rights activist. In fact, we obtained the 600-page FBI file on Davis and released it in 2008, before the presidential election. Davis was not only a CPUSA member, but engaged in activities considered suspicious by the FBI, such as photographing the Hawaii coast, possibly for espionage purposes. Davis was on the FBI’s “security index” of dangerous people.
Later, we obtained a copy of what has been referred to as a semi-autobiographical pornographic novel written by Davis under a pseudonym and entitled Sex Rebel: Black. The author describes it more directly as a “complete sex autobiography…”  It appears that Davis was part of a “free love” movement, someone who by the author’s admission “specialized in sex,” even with children. Frighteningly, Davis molded Obama’s mind for about eight or nine years. Then Obama went off to Occidental College, where classmate John C. Drew says the future president was already a committed Marxist.
I have examined recently unearthed documents showing that Davis was a teacher at and served on the board of the Abraham Lincoln School, a Communist Party-operated front, in Chicago, before he moved to Hawaii. He was a key party operative.
We pointed out in a September 22, 2008, column, “Lying By Media Knows No Bounds,” that the Post’s Maraniss had ignored Davis in his 10,000-word article and had told me in an email that he did so because he concluded that Obama had “hyped out of all proportion” Davis’s influence over him, and that Davis “did not play a role in really shaping Obama.”

Kengor calls the Maraniss rationale for ignoring Davis “strange,” adding, “Apparently, even Obama’s own words (many of them) on Davis’s influence can be dismissed by reporters who do not want to touch this subject.”
It is apparent that they do not want to touch the subject because, now that “Frank” has been identified as a communist and sex pervert, the information will be perceived as hurtful to Obama. Davis’s influence over Obama is a taboo subject and remains so to this day.
Kengor, a professor at Grove City College and author of several books on political figures, gives us a hint of the additional material he has dug up on Obama’s mentor for his new book. He notes, “For decades, he [Davis] wrote the most harsh, outlandish pro-Soviet material you can imagine, with his worst demons being Democrats like Harry Truman and the men in Truman’s administration—George Marshall among them—who opposed Stalin and the Kremlin during the darkest days of the Cold War.”
The obvious relevance of Davis is the influence he exercised over Obama, and the question has to be raised as to whether Obama’s policies in domestic and foreign affairs can now be traced to that influence. As such, it is a much bigger story than a haircut.
But the media’s love affair with Obama, which has been heightened by his embrace of same-sex marriage, means that reporters will go out of their way to ignore Davis. While the major media can be counted on to give Paul Kengor’s new book the silent treatment, the American people have a desire for the straight news about their new “gay president.” It is time for the truth about Davis to come out.

What Obama and his enablers are doing is diabolic in willfully using a captive Military for morally bankrupt social engineering experiments that directly trash the freedom of religion of those members of the Military guaranteed under The Constitution of a country that they are, hypocritically, being ordered to fight and die for!
Just what the heck did all those who gave the last full measure for devotion in all of the wars fought in American history fight and die for?  Certainly, not this tyranny of the morally bankrupt!
This is beyond despicable in that what we're seeing here are the rotten fruits of having social engineers force an issue down the throats of those who, per detailed evidence to the contrary, clearly opposed same as reported by the Center for Military Readiness, as what the social engineers couldn't achieve by direct vote and/or an activist judiciary, they are using the military to force the issue - an issue which violates the "law of nature and nature's God" deemed important in

The April CMR Policy Analysis titled "Chilling Trend of Sexual Assault in the Military" cited revealing data buried in a recent Army "Gold Book" report on wartime personnel stress, and the most recent annual report of the Defense Department Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Office (SAPRO).  Here are some excerpts: 
Reports of sexual assault in all branches of the service have increased by 22% since FY 2007.  (SAPRO Report for FY 2011, April 2012, Exhibit 3, p. 34)       Violent attacks and rapes in the Army have nearly doubled since 2006, rising from 663 in 2006 to 1,313 last year.  Of these, 5% were assaults of men. (Army Gold Book, Figure 111-25, p. 121).  
In all branches of the service, male sexual assault victims have increased significantly, from 10% in FY 2010 to 14% in restricted (confidential) reports, and 12% in unrestricted reports.  (SAPRO Report for FY 2011, p. 60, Exhibit 26, and p. 53, Exhibit 15.)

The words of Flag Officers purportedly speaking about 'Moral and Ethical Behavior and Values' ring hollow when they completely ignore the fact that they let Obama force the military to be part of a morally bankrupt social engineering experiment in catering to a militant homosexual lobby which selfishly demands that society accept their aberrant behavior, no questions asked, moreover, no questions allowed, under force of unjust law via any means possible from an activist judiciary trashing the Constitution on a daily basis to biased polls claiming support which wasn't there from the boots on the ground, per the Center of Military Readiness in regard to the false claims of approval for repeal of the DADT policy to the extreme of now trashing the freedom of religion guaranteed under The Constitution to all those in the Military, especially the Chaplain Corps, who, for reasons of faith, cannot accept what God condemned in Genesis 18 and 19. 

Here's your first lesson in 'Moral and Ethical Behavior and Values 101', General.
The Natural Law of Almighty God, understandable from reason, exclusive of any Divine Revelation connotations,  given to man for the common good, as recognized by the Founding Fathers in The Preamble to The Declaration of Independence, ultimately resulting in a supernatural good in a Kingdom not of this world, is not subject to the dictates of man, PERIOD!

on Odierno: For Women to Succeed in Infantry, Ranger Training May Be Necessary

Odierno: For Women to Succeed in Infantry, Ranger Training May Be Necessary 










Army letting diversity trump winning wars

Gen. Odierno: 'This is a progressive way forward'

author-imageby Bob Unruh

It seems that the old military song “The Army Goes Rolling Along” may need some revisions. Especially where it says, “We’ll fight with all our might, as the Army keeps rolling along.”

That’s because of the military’s new move to open up previously closed job assignments, such as infantry, to women, according to the nonpartisan Center for Military Readiness.

The move was launched in February when Defense Department officials Vee Penrod and Army Maj. Gen. Gary Patton eliminated some rules regarding women soldiers. They promised at the time that assignments for women in or near direct ground combat would be “only the beginning,” the organization noted.

The move was affirmed yesterday when Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Raymond Odierno spoke with reporters.

“This is a progressive way forward,” he said. ” … We’re opening up the occupational specialties that currently women serve in, down to infantry and armor battalions. And we will run this for several months. And my guess is, based on my experience in Iraq and what I’ve seen in Afghanistan, we’ll then move forward with a more permanent solution inside of the Army probably sometime this fall.”

The CRM statement released by its director, Elaine Donnelly, explained the situation this way: “The National Football League does not pursue ‘diversity’ by training female players for non-lethal combat on the gridiron. Even the best female athletes would not survive the grueling training and punishing clashes against aggressive male opponents. Social experiments that override recognition of individual merit are not acceptable in pro football. Every team wants to win the Super Bowl.”

But in the case of the U.S. military, women now are being invited “to train for infantry battalions that engage in lethal ground combat – violent conflicts in which lives and missions are at risk. The stated motive is not to improve combat readiness, it is ‘diversity’ and ‘equal opportunities for women to excel.’”

Odierno said just this week “more than 200 women began reporting to the maneuver battalions in nine of our brigade combat teams, selected to participate in the exception to the direct ground combat assignment rule.”

He said other rules were rescinded to open up “six military occupational specialties and 80 units, more than 13,000 positions to women, opening up new opportunities to our female soldiers.”

But a report posted by the National Health Institute cites studies showing that women are “approximately 52 percent and 66 percent as strong as the men in the upper and lower body respectively. The men were also stronger relative to lean body mass.”

So where are the military benefits to having someone physically less strong being put in a position of carrying an injured soldier, hefting a 70-plus pound pack and fighting a pitched firefight at the end of a days-long trek?

CMR has said the Pentagon’s policy “is doing the wrong thing for the wrong reasons.”

“Instead of putting the needs of the military first, the Defense Department is taking incremental steps to implement the deeply flawed recommendations of the Military Diversity Leadership Commission,” CMR said.

Its report, “From Representation to Inclusion: Diversity Leadership for the 21st Century,” comes not from battle-scarred veterans but from “civilian military ‘equal opportunity’ professionals who assign priority to ‘diversity,’ not military effectiveness,” CMR said.

The recommendations concede “diversity” is not about “treating everyone the same,” but instead its focus is on “inclusion.”

Congress already has been warned of the problem. In a Congressional Research Service Report on women in combat, CMR reported, the authors point out: “Notably absent in this language is any mention of the effects of military readiness such changes may produce.”


The military has said that starting this month, both men and women in entry-level training and male Marines from a Ground Combat Element will be asked to volunteer for three physical tests: heavy machine gun lift (72 pounds), casualty evacuation and a march under load (more than 70 pounds).

“The same tasks in an actual combat environment are often performed while attacking the enemy after a long march, in bad weather, when troops are exhausted, short-handed and under fire,” CMR reported.

None of the concerns reflect on the bravery, ability and sacrifices of women in the military, CRM said.

But besides the very real impact on a military’s capabilities, the women themselves are at risk, CRM reported.

A number of studies have fond “there is no way to treat women exactly like men in training without increasing debilitating injuries at far higher rates among women than men.”

A British test of “gender-free” training found that injuries among women rose 200 percent, and Britain ultimately decided women would not be assigned to land combat units.

A study reported in Military Medicine in 2007 said the career implications of injuries include a failure to complete a term of service, a failure to advance in rank and a failure to re-enlist.

“Since the announced goal is ‘equal opportunity to excel,’ women will ‘excel,’ no matter how many compromises are made to achieve that result. To make ‘equality’ permanent, trainers will simply drop or modify exercises that injure women at rates far greater than men,” the CMR analysis said. “Within a single generation, no one will remember the previous regimen, resulting in infantry training programs that are less challenging for male Marines.”

But, the report said, remaining unexplained is how any of this will benefit fighting forces.

The organization said the key question remains how would assignment of women to front-line combat posts help combat readiness.

The CMR also long has reported on the advance of permission for same-sex soldiers to serve openly in the U.S. military.

The group’s most recent report documented that sexual misbehavior is on the rise.

CMR completed an analysis of the the reports, including the overall military assessment of sexual assaults as well as the Army’s Gold Book report. It cites 515 rapes, 414 aggravated sexual assaults and 349 forcible sodomies documented by just the Criminal Investigation Command in 2011.

“Pentagon officials regularly praise their own work and proclaim undeserved ‘success,’ even though evidence of sexual misconduct, both consensual and non-consensual, continues to accelerate, year after year,” Donnelly said.

“It is time to reconsider and change flawed policies that are weakening the culture of the only military we have.”

In December 2010, Congress repealed the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy established by President Clinton that allowed homosexuals to remain in the military on the condition they not make a public issue of their sexual lifestyle.

The new law, for the first time in U.S. history, allows homosexual members to openly acknowledge their sexual choices.

Among the details in the reports: While, in 2006, 5 percent of the violent sexual assaults have been against men, recent reports now put that figure at 12 to 14 percent.

The Army said it is “currently monitoring same-gender sex crime for a potential increase in forcible sodomy and other sex offenses related to the disassociation of homosexuality from the crime itself.”

Subject: The Truth About Harvey Milk




The Truth About Harvey Milk 

The Truth About Harvey Milk 
Written By Laurie Higgins  

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that President Barack Obama invited the obscene, Christian-hating, homosexual, manboy Dan Savage to the White House. After all, President Obama’s  “Safe School Czar” was the homosexual founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Kevin Jennings; and Obama awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom posthumously to the infamous homosexual Harvey Milk who was deified in the Hollywood film Milk.

And why am I bringing this up?  I’m bringing it up because May 22 is “Harvey Milk Day” in California -- yet another abuse of public schools to advance the moral beliefs of homosexuals and their ideological allies. There are few reasons to be thankful to live in Illinois, but this is one: We don’t yet have a law proclaiming a day of commemoration for Harvey Milk in our public schools.

I’m also bringing it up because many have seen or heard of the eponymous film about Harvey Milk and starring Sean Penn but may not know how far from reality the film’s depiction of Milk is.

In 2009, then governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed SB 572 into law. This law, introduced by openly homosexual Senator Mark Leno, designates May 22 “as having special significance in public schools and educational institutions and would encourage those entities to conduct suitable commemorative exercises on that date.”

And why do liberal California lawmakers consider May 22 significant in public schools? They believe that children in grade K-12 should commemorate annually the birthday of the “first openly gay man to be elected to public office in a major city of the United States,” who was murdered by a disgruntled colleague.

The law states that “all public schools and educational institutions are encouraged to observe…and to conduct suitable commemorative exercises as follows: On Harvey Milk Day, exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk, recognizing his accomplishments, and familiarizing pupils with the contributions he made to this state.”

Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council says this about the man whom Obama and Schwarzenegger think should be honored: “Milk is famous only for winning one election, being murdered -- and having sex with men.”

And it wasn’t just adult men with whom Milk had sex. Sprigg recounts that Milk was also fond of teenage boys. In fact, one of his live-in relationships was a pederastic relationship with a 16-year-old boy when Milk was 33.  Yes, I can understand why Obama wanted to honor him and Schwarzenegger thinks children should commemorate him.

According to Daniel Flynn, “the real Harvey Milk was a short-tempered demagogue who cynically invented stories of victimhood to advance his political career.” And contrary to the implication in the film, Milk was not murdered because of his homosexuality, but rather because he was instrumental in preventing a board of supervisors member from regaining his seat.

The most shocking omission from the film and likely from the tall tales California public school teachers tell their young students is that Harvey Milk was a huge supporter of Reverend Jim Jones:

Nine days prior to Milk’s death, more than 900 followers of Jim Jones — many of them campaign workers for Milk — perished in the most ghastly set of murder-suicides in modern history.
Before the congregants of the Peoples Temple drank Jim Jones’s deadly Kool-Aid, Harvey Milk and much of San Francisco’s ruling class had already figuratively imbibed. Milk occasionally spoke at Jones’s San Francisco–based headquarters, promoted Jones through his newspaper columns, and defended the Peoples Temple from its growing legion of critics. Jones provided conscripted “volunteers” for Milk’s campaigns to distribute leaflets by the tens of thousands. Milk returned the favor by abusing his position of public trust on behalf of Jones’s criminal endeavors.
“Rev. Jones is widely known in the minority communities here and elsewhere as a man of the highest character, who has undertaken constructive remedies for social problems which have been amazing in their scope and effectiveness,” Supervisor Milk wrote President Jimmy Carter seven months before the Jonestown carnage.

The purpose of Milk’s letter was to aid and abet his powerful supporter’s abduction of a six-year-old boy.

Milk’s missive to the president prophetically continued: “Not only is the life of a child at stake, who currently has loving and protective parents in the Rev. and Mrs. Jones, but our official relations with Guyana could stand to be jeopardized, to the potentially great embarrassment of our State Department.” John Stoen, the boy whose actual parents Milk libeled to the president as purveyors of “bold-faced lies” and blackmail attempts, perished at Jonestown. This, the only remarkable episode in Milk’s brief tenure on the San Francisco board of supervisors, is swept under the rug by his hagiographers.

This is the man that homosexuals and their allies celebrate and seek to promote as a hero in our taxpayer-subsidized schools. In their effort to exalt Milk as a civil rights hero in public schools to young, naive students,  the truth about him is concealed. There’s even a children’s picture book designed to indoctrinate little ones, titled The Harvey Milk Story. It’s been positively reviewed by Kirkus Reviews and by K.T. Horning, children’s librarian, author, and educator who has served on numerous influential literary boards, and “many book award and evaluation committees, including the American Library Association’s “Rainbow List.”

Public schools are one of the central battlegrounds for the war on moral truth regarding homosexuality. Specious “civil rights” arguments, like the ones promoted by worshippers of Harvey Milk, based on an absurd, untenable comparison of homosexuality to race, and media-fomented hysteria about bullying are driving the exploitation of public education.

Unless and until parents become willing to tell administrators and teachers preemptively that under no circumstances are their children to be exposed to any resources or activities that mention homosexuality or gender confusion, the exploitation will not merely continue, it will increase.

America’s First Gay President Embraces Same-Sex Marriage  

by Steven W. Mosher

Newsweek magazine is so proud of Obama’s self-described “evolution” on the issue of same-sex marriage that it has anointed him “America’s First Gay President.”

America’s voters, at least those in key swing states, seem much less impressed. As I told friends at the Canadian March for Life, which took place in Ottawa last week, Barry’s latest flip-flop will almost certainly cost him North Carolina, Indiana, and my home state of Virginia. Other states, like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, are now in play as well. If these go for Romney, then Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage will have cost him the election.
If this particular evolution does result in the President’s political extinction, it may strike some as a kind of poetic justice. After all, the behavior that he is endorsing is an evolutionary dead end. I mean this in the literal, Biology 101 sense.
Leave aside questions of morality for the moment. Leave aside the question of whether homosexual acts dramatically shorten one’s lifespan because of the diseases that attend the homosexual act. (Even homosexual activists admit that this is so; they just quibble about the exact number of years that exposure to the blood and fecal matter of multiple partners shortens your lifespan.)
What I mean by evolutionary dead end is that each and every homosexual coupling is, by definition, sterile. No matter how many times they copulate, homosexual couplings — whether male on male, or female on female — cannot generate new life. Do not hold your breath waiting for Barney Frank to send out a birth announcement.
Homosexual activists say that the ability to procreate is unimportant. They likewise deny that an important function of marriage is to promote responsible childbearing and child-rearing. From an evolutionary point of view, however, such objections are complete, utter nonsense.
To illustrate this, let us do a simple thought experiment. Let us imagine that Obama’s embrace of homosexual marriage is wildly successful. So successful, in fact, that by the end of his second term, heterosexual marriage has fallen into desuetude, and everyone in America has entered into a homosexual union. (I know how unpleasant a prospect this may seem to some, but bear with me for a moment).
So what happens to the United States then? The first thing that would happen is that the birth rate would drop to effectively zero (not exactly zero because I assume that some few lesbians would continue to artificially inseminate themselves). Then the population of the United States would begin to die off, rapidly. By the end of the century, nearly every single American would be dead.
Population control enthusiasts have long promoted homosexuality precisely because they understand its inherent sterility. This is why Frederick S. Jaffe, for example, in his October 1970 article in Perspectives, suggested that one way to reduce the American birth rate would be to encourage homosexual behavior. Jaffe understood that gay and lesbian sex was barren.
But the population bomb has fizzled, and the recession has driven birth rates in the U.S. below replacement.
The only future a family — or a nation — has is its children. America will only continue to thrive if each generation replaces itself. The American experiment in self-government will fail without people, who are, after all, its first prerequisite.
President Reagan famously remarked about abortion that all those in favor of it have already been born. The same may be said about same-sex marriage: All those in favor of it have already been born.
To the extent that Obama succeeds in promoting same-sex marriage, even fewer babies will be.

on Poll Says Economy the Issue for Elections, Not Gay Marriage

There needs to be an open revolt at the convention to deny Romney the nomination on the part of God-fearing conservatives, which are the ONLY kind that can be accurately identified as conservative in more than name only.
Romney is as shameless as Obama in having the unmitigated gall to go before a Christian University in giving a purported lecture on family values, when his silence on the issue is deafening in trying to con his audience, given that he's the antithesis of family values!  Romney is a pathological liar, just like Obama, who is going to turn off a base that is needed badly, not only to win the presidency, but also to recapture the leadership of the House and Senate with other than GOPE RINO Obama enabling frauds.
I hope that Viguerie & Co. understand this seminal fact because only the future of a country fit to live in is at stake, as opposed to the hell intended for it by the communist in the WH whose reelection the GOPE is making easier by ramming an Obama clone down our throats!
It is not only a crime to let the Bushites get away with this, but also a grave sin for Christians, IMO, for which they're going to have to answer to before God in Judgment!
God has already definitively spoken on the oxymoronic concept of sodomite marriage, and every other aberrant behavior of that ilk, in Genesis 18 and 19 with the ashes of Sodom and Gomorrah being proof positive as His Natural Law is not open to arrogant man's bastardization, PERIOD!

on Romney Opposes Same-Sex Marriage But Says Same-Sex Couples ‘Have the Right’ to Adopt Children 

Family values is not what the hypocrite extraordinaire RINO Romney pushed when he was Governor of MA as any objective reading of his sorry record will show that he one-upped Obama in forcing the most anti-family policies imaginable down the throats of people of faith and right reason who had to go to court to fight for their unalienable God-given rights, in particular, their freedom of religion guaranteed under The Constitution.
An America that continuously flouts the Natural Law of Almighty God is an America inviting God's wrath! Civilizations die as a direct function of their moral collapse.  America is now staring at its death in the face at this moment in history because of cowering to the irrational demands of the militant homosexual lobby which is as contrary to the common good as it gets!

on Mitt Romney holds fundraiser with manufacturer of the Morning After Pill

In terms of the social issues upon which civilizations thrive or die, an objective look at Romney's resume including his most recent statements about seeing nothing wrong with destroying embryos for his surrogate baby business, which was reported on CNSnews, shows that Romney makes Obama look like Mother Teresa as Romney basically set the table for moral bankruptcy while Governor of MA by one-upping everything that Obama is now doing.
There should be outrage in the land on the part of those people of faith and right reason who want a country worthy of God's blessing, not His condemnation, but the GOPE RINOS are forcing the issue by basically giving us no choice in the matter.
Well, there is a choice for all those who want a country fit to live in for our children and grandchildren, which depends on doing everything possible, with the help of God, to deny Romney a nomination that he's not entitled to, contrary to his warped beliefs!

Money changes everything


The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network


May 8, 2012


By Jennifer Lahl, CBC President


When the news broke that Mitt and Ann Romney welcomed grandchildren numbers 17 and 18 this past Friday via “gestational surrogacy,” those of us here at CBC central—who oppose commercialized conception—wondered where the bottom is in these murky waters of assisted reproduction.

Tagg Romney posted this on his facebook page after the twins were born:

Jen and I are happy to announce the birth of twin boys, David Mitt and William Ryder. Everyone is healthy and happy. They weighed in at 5 lbs 13 oz and 19-3/4 inches and 6 lbs. 13 oz and 19 inches. A special thanks to our gestational surrogate who made this possible for us. Life truly is a miracle, and we feel so blessed to be able to celebrate the arrival of these precious boys into our family. For those keeping score at home, these are grandchildren numbers 17 and 18 for my parents.

Those who are regular readers know I have mentioned in the past the list in Time magazine:

“The Ten Best Chores to Outsource.” Expecting to see housecleaning, landscaping, pool cleaning—you know, actual chores—I was shocked to see the number one best chore to outsource was pregnancy. As the Time article put it:

Outsourcing brings to mind big factories and call centers. But entrepreneurs around the globe now offer services—from tutoring to sculpting a bust of your grandpa—to regular folks for a fraction of the cost in the West. Thought the world was flat before? Well, now you can hire someone in India to carry your child.

Outsourcing pregnancy has become big business, transforming having a child into a “bits and pieces” brokered industry: sperm from a handsome Scandinavian stud; eggs from a smart, beautiful Ivy League woman; a womb-for-rent from a poor woman in India trying to provide food and education for her children; and brokers in the middle helping set up the legal transactions to build a better baby the 21st century way. Just this past week, London’s Daily Mail ran a story titled, “The Designer baby factory: Eggs from beautiful Eastern Europeans, sperm from wealthy Westerners and embryos implanted in desperate women.” 


Sadly, the “gestational surrogates”—truly desperate women—in these stories are identified as “uneducated, bare-footed, dirt-poor Indian women from outlying villages.” The surrogacy consultants who run the WYZAX surrogacy clinic assure intended parents that the surrogates will not get attached to the babies.

The Romneys didn’t have to exploit a poor woman in India. They chose to exploit a woman, probably much less poor, right here in the U.S. And their surrogate might not have felt so exploited. She was just “helping a couple have a baby”—and being compensated for her help. Because of little regulation in the U.S., commercial surrogacy is legal and couples like the Romneys don’t have to outsource their pregnancies to India. Our Canadian neighbors got it right when the Supreme Court of Canada wrote, “allowing the purchase of human gametes and surrogacy services devalues human life and degrades those who choose to participate in such a commercial transaction” (emphasis mine).

Many of the news stories I’ve read over the weekend about Tagg and Jen Romney using a “gestational surrogate” state that this means the child is biologically theirs. I’m not sure how the press came to that conclusion because a gestational surrogate only provides the womb. Gestational surrogacy is just the derogatory term for the woman who carries and gives birth to the baby. They could have used an egg donor, which would mean the egg donor would be the genetic mother. They could have used a sperm donor too, meaning Tagg wouldn’t be the genetic father of the boys, if that was the case. And all this, apparently ignoring the Latter Day Saints’ position on surrogacy (the LDS church strongly discourages surrogate motherhood). Tagg and Jen have used this same surrogate in the past to give birth to their first son.

Outsourcing pregnancy. Wombs for rent. Commercialized Conception. Call me shocked and disgusted.


Fact Check: Egg Freezing

The Daily Mail story reports, “[A]s human eggs cannot be frozen and transported, and there are few surrogacy clinics or wombs available for rent in http://www.cbc-network.org/enewsletter/HumanEgg.jpgEastern Europe, these donors travel, at the height of their monthly cycle, to the United States, where the eggs are extracted and fertilised with the father’s sperm (which can be transported, frozen, from his country of residence, and stored indefinitely).”
Note: Human eggs can be frozen and transported. However, in 2005 the European Parliament issued a resolution banning the trafficking in human eggs because of abuses to young women whose health had been negatively impacted by selling their eggs.

on Romney Says It's OK to ‘Destroy’ Human Embryos Created Through In Vitro Fertilization  

In terms of his cavalier attitude about human life, Romney is starting to make Obama look like Mother Teresa!

Who made Romney God?

We were all once human embryos created by God with man helping God's creation via the Natural Law.  To play God is a grave evil, as children are a gift from God, not something that is owed man to be used and discarded at man's whim for utilitarian purposes regardless of their stage of development, as supremely arrogant Romney declares, which should give people pause to think as to what else is this man capable of? 

This is common knowledge to those who have check Romney's pathetic resume when Governor of MA in regard to the social issues which ultimately determine whether a civilization thrives or dies, as many people of faith and right reason had to go to court to fight for their unalienable God-given rights, in particular, their freedom of religion, guaranteed them under The Constitution which Romney summarily trashed by one-upping Obama in that regard.

Got a mail from Paul Ryan today asking for my money, telling me that the GOP has it right!
I corrected him in no uncertain terms in my reply with no money included by reminding him that what he said is in error because the GOPE is ramming RINO Romney down our throats who will be the death knell for the Party, and by extension, the country.
I told Ryan, unequivocally, that there should be a revolt at the Convention with Romney denied the nomination, PERIOD, given Romney's sorry socialist record in MA where he literally one-upped Obama, because the base that the GOP needs to, not only gain the White House with a Constitutional Conservative, but also the leadership in both Houses of Congress, replacing the shameless Obama enablers, will never happen without the enthusiasm of that aforementioned needed base that is being turned off by the Party's funeral director, Romney.

Correction:  We all know what the certainty is, given John "I can't wait to cave to Obama" Boehner's sorry act to date, an act that the curtain must finally come down on if there is any real hope of reining Obama in as opposed to the bluster of gutless GOPE RINO Obama enabling cowards who couldn't care less!
In short, How many times do we have to be conned by the false bluster of Boehner who hasn't caught on to the fact yet that he wasn't put in power by an angry electorate in 2010 to talk to a tyrant willfully destroying our country from within, but rather to STOP him in this tracks for the sake of an America fit to live in for our children and grandchildren, which, clearly, Boehner couldn't care less about?

Kiss of death: Specter endorses Beltway barnacle Orrin Hatch, trashes Tea Party “cannibals”


By Michelle Malkin  •  May 14, 2012 06:15 AM


Turncoat former Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter is on the Tea Party-bashing book tour circuit. So, naturally he showed up on MSNBC this weekend to nurse his lingering electoral wounds and speak up for the nation’s endangered RINOS, squishes, and Beltway barnacles.
As I first noted on Twitter yesterday, Specter spoke — whined — to MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry as they bemoaned how voters are booting out entrenched moderate incumbents. Specter complained that “Cannibals are devouring senators. If you don’t follow orthodoxy, vote the party line right down the line, if you have a 93 percent conservative voting record like Bob Bennett in Utah — that is not conservative enough.” Specter then lamented (a la John Kerry) Indiana’s grass-roots victory of Richard Mourdock over three-decade-plus incumbent GOP Sen. Dick Lugar. Tellingly, Specter used Lugar’s defeat to plead to MSNBC’s audience (all three dozen of them or whatever) to keep endangered Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch in office.
“Orrin Hatch is in jeopardy in Utah,” Specter wheedled. “I hope that people in Utah — and I know you have a big listening audience, viewing audience there, Melissa — will read this book and come out and vote to make sure that Orrin Hatch is not cannibalized.”

As noted here on April 21, despite amassing a giant, $6 million campaign war chest and calling in every last chit with Republican friends and cronies, 77-year-old GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch faces upstart conservative entrepreneur and renowned state pension reformer Dan Liljenquist (with campaign coffers of about $200,000) in Utah’s June 26 primary.

Hatch is running scared and refusing to debate Liljenquist in any major venue. The Salt Lake Tribune called out the cowering Hatch this weekend:

Orrin Hatch is not the first entrenched politician to try to deny a challenger the spotlight and credibility that come with a chance to debate the incumbent. And he won’t be the last.
But the senior senator from Utah is being particularly cynical with his grudging agreement to a single joint appearance with his rival in the June 26 Republican primary — former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist. After weeks of claiming that pressing Senate business makes such a debate impossible, Hatch has deigned to a joint appearance with Liljenquist on KSL radio’s Doug Wright Show, sometime in late June.
Meaning no disrespect to the multitalented Mr. Wright, or to his popular radio broadcast, but this is not what the voters of Utah need and deserve. Even KSL, in cooperation with its corporate siblings at The Deseret News, had offered to host a prime-time radio and TV broadcast debate with the two candidates, with Deseret/KSL executives handling all the complicated details.
But Hatch refused.
A radio broadcast can allow for some extended discussion of complicated topics. And candidates and serious voters alike might prefer the focus to remain on those issues, rather than being shifted to such trivia as whether a candidate is looking at his watch (like losing candidate George H.W. Bush) or emitting a frustrated sigh (like losing candidate Al Gore).
But radio lacks the impact of the televised debates that voters have become accustomed to over the past 50 years. It fails to offer voters, most of whom will never have the chance to confront either candidate in person, the best available opportunity to take the measure of each hopeful, side by side.

So, Hatch is content to let crapweasel surrogates like Arlen Specter speak for him — attacking the Tea Party while Hatch disingenuously pretends to be a Tea Party founding father to save his hide.
Oh, and anyone who doubts that these two haven’t been talking to each other hasn’t been watching them in action over the last 30-plus years. Here they are way back in 1981 with then-Surgeon General nominee C. Everett Koop:
And here they are in 2004, when Specter was named to head the Senate Judiciary Committee with Hatch’s support over the objections of conservatives.
And here they are in 2006 with Senate Democrats Dianne Feinstein and Tom Harkin, with whom they collaborated on a stem cell research bill vetoed by President Bush:
In April 2009, Hatch again came to Specter’s aid after the turncoat switched parties — this time, by trash-talking Specter’s conservative, Tea Party-backed rival Pat Toomey and declaring that “I don’t think there is anybody in the world who believes [Toomey] can get elected senator there.” Toomey, of course, went on to win Specter’s seat despite disparagement and long odds.
Hatch’s grass-roots opponent, Dan Liljenquist, faces the same odds. Hatch is desperately trying to avoid public, prime-time debates with the formidable, well-respected state legislator because Hatch’s blatant lies about Liljenquist’s impressive pension reform record would be fully exposed — and Hatch would be forced to defend his habitual hook-ups with destructive Democrats. Remember:
He slobbered over corruptocrat Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd.
He co-sponsored the $6 billion national service boondoggle and dedicated it to his good friend Teddy Kennedy, with whom he also joined hands to create the ever-expanding SCHIP entitlement.
He supported tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner from day one, lavished praise on Joe Biden’s balls, and embraced and defended Attorney General Eric Holder’s nomination because, he said, “I like Barack Obama and I want to help him if I can.”
He was an original sponsor of the open-borders DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout and voted for the massive TARP bailout.
I repeat again, as I have since the inception of the Tea Party movement:
Entrenched incumbency is not an argument for more entrenched incumbency.
Booting out Beltway barnacles closing in on four decades in power is not “cannibalization.”
It’s healthy rejuvenation, restoration, and rejection of the pernicious permanent political class our Founding Fathers so vehemently opposed.
Donate, support, and spread the word: Dan Liljenquist for Utah.

on Palin-Backed Candidate Defeats Establishment Republicans in Nebraska’s U.S. Senate Primary 

From here it looks like The Tea Party is alive and well in responding to the call of an individual in Sarah Palin who understands that the sorry GOPE RINO status quo isn't going to get it done if America has any hope of extricating itself from the abyss intended for it by the Obamunists!


Palin-Backed Candidate Defeats Establishment Republicans in Nebraska’s U.S. Senate Primary










How Rich Are European Socialists and Marxists?
Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

Hollande promises to spend lavishly on social programs and new government jobs

How Rich Are European Socialists and Marxists?



- Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh  

The Socialist Francois Hollande is a very rich man. The newly elected president of France has three holiday homes on the Riviera, north of Cannes. Pretending to “dislike the rich,” the “gauche caviar” Hollande is very rich himself.

According to the London Evening Standard and the Official Journal, he has assets of one million British pounds. In addition, the “champagne Socialist” owns a “palatial villa in Mougins, the hilltop Cannes suburb where Pablo Picasso used to live” and two apartments close to the promenade in Cannes. The three villas in Cannes were valued at 800,000 Euros, 230,000 Euros, and 140,000 Euros. Hollande lives with his girlfriend in a well-appointed apartment in Paris.

Attacking the rich who “do not pay their fair share” is just a campaign ploy to pretend that a president cares for the poor. In reality, he is only interested in sharing other people’s money and wealth, not his own.

How do Socialists/Marxists acquire wealth? I am not sure how Mr. Hollande acquired his fortune, perhaps he took entrepreneurial advantage of the very capitalist system he abhors and maligns.

Politicians often enter service quite poor and exit the system fabulously wealthy. Perhaps they use insider trading information to invest money “wisely.” Ordinary citizens would go to jail if caught investing in such a manner. Laws and jail are only for ordinary citizens, politicians are immune to the law.

I do know how many communist elites and their loyal lackeys became millionaires and billionaires in Romania. During the terror reign of Nicolae Ceausescu, they pillaged and confiscated private property from all citizens but particularly the wealth of those who owned multiple homes, land, paintings, gold coins, cars, and jewelry.

Many communists had huge bank accounts in Switzerland and lived like kings while the population starved, fearing for their lives daily, and lucky to be alive. Shortly after Ceausescu and his wife Elena were executed on Christmas 1989, several billion dollars worth of financial aid earmarked for economic development in Romania, disappeared without a trace. To this day, it has not been found, and nobody was held accountable for its disappearance.

Before Romania became part of the European Union in January 2007, the IMF offered loans to individual entrepreneurs to start businesses. The terms were quite lax and no collateral was required. Honest citizens, who had no idea how they would repay millions of Euros, avoided such loans. Dishonest citizens bee-lined to get loans. Businesses went bust and did not have to repay a dime of the squandered capital. Some entrepreneurs were successful but with a lot of corruption and graft.

After 1989, politicians, their families, and former communist party apparatchiks started selling the property of the state to the highest foreign bidders without any input or accountability, and pocketed the money. Regulatory institutions and judges were bribed and nobody went to jail.

All the means of production, previously controlled by the state, were broken up bit by bit, sold, and privatized while the “proletariat” watched in dismay. The working class was supposed to own everything collectively but nobody dared to claim a piece for himself/herself. Nobody could touch the wealth; it was not really theirs to be had. Only the communist elites could enrich themselves at the trough of the communist utopia. The proletariat just got the crumbs if they behaved according to the Communist Party Five Year Plans.

The Economic Police made sure that nobody got ahead of anybody else. Agents, aided by paid informants, made frequent raids in people’s homes to inquire where they got better food, better clothes, or better furniture than anybody else had.

The lifestyles of the rich and famous were a good description of how the dictator, his family, his lackeys, and the Communist Party members lived while the masses seethed in despair. Rebellion was out of the question, guns were confiscated early, and suppression would have been swift and brutal.

Hollande promises to spend lavishly on social programs and new government jobs, more than the 28 percent of GDP that France currently spends on welfare. His subjects will be well fed, expected to deliver a minimum of effort, and a lousy work ethic. After all, in the socialist mind, everything is a right and must be provided by the state free. It is a form of slavery to the government, like a well-behaved and devoted dog who expects nothing else but his daily rations of food and shelter.

Looming U.N. Mega-Conference in Rio to Seek ‘More Sustainable Future’ 







Subject: UN Agenda 21 Threatens American Sovereignty
Date: Wed, 16 May 2012 14:05:58 -0400
From: patriot@declarationallianceupdate.org




View this Email as a Web Page




Agenda 21 watchers are on the alert, because American sovereignty is imperiled! In a matter of weeks, while we are completely absorbed in the most contentious political contest in decades, United Nations Eco-Marxists will be trying to hijack America at the Rio+20 Green Extreme Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 20 – 22, 2012!



With America represented by the Obama administration, the dangers are real! We are observing a deterioration of social, economic and political conditions in the U.S., simultaneously with increased violence and economic destabilization in Europe. These crises hammering the developed economies have created opportunities for globalists to actually advance Agenda 21 – a comprehensive project to destroy Western political systems of national sovereignty and replace them with New World Order, "one world" governance.
Put bluntly, Agenda 21 implementation is rapidly rising, and most U.S. citizens have no idea it is usurping American national sovereignty and killing our national liberty.
The United Nations' Kyoto Agreement in 1992 formally initiated Agenda 21, and through its many multi-lateral organizations the U.N. has been continuously issuing directives, policies and guidelines ever since for stealthy Agenda 21 implementation.



Rio UN Agenda 21Now in June at Rio, just as they did so destructively 20 years ago, U.N. global warming totalitarians will be attacking American sovereignty again! The latest of their "manuals" for usurpation is the 242 page International Covenant on Environment and Development (4th ed.), which was updated in September 2010, and now will be featured with Draft Updated Text, IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) Environmental Law Programme at this new, execrable Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June.
According to 2012 press releases for the Rio Eco LeftFest:

"The Draft Covenant is a blueprint for an international framework (or umbrella) agreement consolidating and developing existing legal principles related to environment and development. The intention is that it will remain a 'living document' until – as is the hope and expectation of those who have been involved in the project – it is adopted as a basis for multilateral negotiations."



The global sweep of Agenda 21 is most succinctly addressed therein under Article 39:
Parties shall cooperate in the conservation, management and restoration of natural resources in areas under the jurisdiction of more than one State, or fully or partly in areas beyond the limits of national jurisdiction. To this end, based inter alia on the ecosystem approach:

(a) Parties sharing the same natural system shall make every effort to manage that system as a single ecological unit notwithstanding national boundaries. They shall cooperate on the basis of equity and reciprocity, in particular through bilateral and multilateral agreements or arrangements, in order to develop harmonized policies and strategies covering the entire system and the ecosystems it contains. With regard to aquatic systems, such agreements or arrangements shall cover the catchment area, including the adjoining marine environment and recharge and discharge areas in the case of aquifers.
(b) Parties sharing the same species or population, whether migratory or not, shall make every effort to treat such species or population as a single biological unit. They shall cooperate, in particular through bilateral and multilateral agreements, in order to maintain the species or population concerned in a favourable conservation status. In the case of a harvested species or population, all the Parties that are range states of that species or population shall cooperate in the development and implementation of a joint management plan to ensure the sustainable use of that resource and the equitable sharing of the benefits deriving from that use.

In other words – what is America's is ours, and "our parties under the eco-system approach" will decide what America can do with herself.
Enemies who hate America, despise liberty, and want the United States transformed from a Constitutional, commercial republic into eco-Marxism are relentlessly advancing this seditious new plan – Agenda 21 – to make our nation a vassal state of the United Nations.
And, for the first time ever in America's storied history, these opponents of American nationalism have a willing accomplice in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. Obama's administration sends "our delegations" to this international Eco-LeftFest, and he leads the majority party, the Democrats, in the U.S. Senate where international treaties and U.N. pacts are ratified.



Agenda 21 GraphicSo the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will only be of assistance in mobilizing elite opinion, but not in the ratification vote. It's up to "we the people" if Agenda 21 is to be fended off, and America kept the land of the free!
Since my years of service as U.S. Ambassador under President Ronald Reagan, I've alerted America to a myriad of United Nations threats to America's sovereignty and security. But Agenda 21 is the most aggressive and ambitious attack on our nation to be put forth by the U.N. one-worlders for decades. Its Preamble states:

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced: a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level."

Agenda 21 is overtly totalitarian, and inimical to our liberty in countless ways. But there is still time to alert the Congress and your Senators to this menace and repel it before it is too late.



You see, the Providential principles of our God-ordained Declaration of Independence are prudently applied in the U.S. Constitution, which states we the people are in charge of our Senators and Representatives.
And America is in such jeopardy from Agenda 21 that patriots like you must act immediately or we can't stop its efforts to:

·         Eliminate private property rights,

·         Enforce U.N. mandated low-energy, ecologically-approved housing – to replace YOUR home,

·         Confiscate private farms and farmland,

·         Snatch away other private landholdings,

·         Ban individual ownership of internal combustion vehicles.




And should you think I am exaggerating the threat, listen to what the U.N. itself says the treaty entails:

Underlying Agenda 21 is the notion that humanity has reached a defining moment in its history. We can continue our present policies which serve to deepen the economic divisions within and between countries; which increase poverty, hunger, sickness and illiteracy worldwide; and which are causing the continued deterioration of the ecosystem on which we depend for life on Earth.
Or we can change course… New concepts of wealth and prosperity should be developed which allow higher standards of living through changed lifestyles that are less dependent on the Earth's finite resources and more in harmony with its carrying capacity. This idea should be reflected in new systems of national accounts and other indicators of sustainable development. "No nation can achieve this on its own," states the preamble to Agenda 21. "Together we can – in a global partnership for sustainable development."

Can't happen here, you say? Think again, because Agenda 21 is already being put in place with little notice, as Obama makes good on his vow to "fundamentally transform America!"
On June 9th 2011, Obama signed Executive Order 13575, establishing a new Executive administrative body, the White House Rural Council, tasked to "federally coordinate and implement environmental development locally in 'sustainable rural communities.'"



That might not sound threatening on the surface, but in my long experience with the worst of federal government AND United Nation power grabs, the phrase "sustainable rural communities" is a red flag of danger, because that term is straight out of Agenda 21!
Ag 21 Venn diagramIn fact, "sustainable" has been the eco-extremist buzzword for two decades – since the FIRST 1992 U.N. "Earth Summit" Conference on Environment & Development (UNCED) was held in Rio de Janeiro to advance the green agenda of anti-oil alternative energy, global warming alarmism, and supression of "deadly" CO2 and "greenhouse gas" emissions.
Twenty years later, they are relentlessly STILL AT IT! And step by stealthy step, making headway against our sovereignty!
Most American authorities at the time dismissed that global forum as inconsequential venting by "eco-conspiracy" extremists unworthy of rebuttal. That was a huge mistake because…
…growing unchecked since, UNCED and its spawn have hatched a plot for a centrally governed global society – environmentalism's version of the Marxist "utopia" of communism – that will dictate:

·         Where we live,

·         What we eat,

·         What resources and energy sources we may use,

·         Where, when and how we can move (if at all).




You must alert your Senators to how Agenda 21 openly targets private property – control of which is a long-time aspiration of the United Nations. The U.N. wrongly contends private land ownership causes inequitable concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice. Healthy societies can only be achieved, these leftists insist, if land is communal and all used in the interest of society, not individuals.
Agenda 21 thus is a transnational, eco-Marxist plan to erode property and other rights, destroy individual liberty, gut our Constitution and make America submissive to foreign bureaucrats!

It should be enough to know that George Soros, the America-hating billionaire, is pushing Agenda 21 through his International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives. Barack Obama's shadowy ally and funder is pouring his money into its ratification – funds that are not yet being matched by those seeking its repudiation.



If we are to prevent this totalitarian treaty from becoming the law of our land, we must act QUICKLY! Activate your Congressmen to outrage and seek legislation to overturn Obama's Trojan horse White House Rural Council!
Demand your U.S. Senators be true to their oath of office: "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States." Let them know how Obama's Executive Order for Agenda 21 is utterly at odds with our Constitution, inimical to our republican form of governance, and hostile to America's history and tradition as "land of the free and home of the brave"!
Agenda 21 MapOpen their eyes to the fact that – by first targeting and then eliminating private property in the land of the free – this subversive eco-scam would effectively end our Constitutional republic by transforming the United States into a subordinate, vassal state of the United Nations. Tell them a vote FOR Agenda 21 is a vote AGAINST the Constitution, AGAINST the United States of America, AGAINST the will of the people they were elected to serve.
And because Soros' money is flowing toward Agenda 21's bloodless coup of the United States, please consider including a generous, even sacrificial, gift to help Declaration Alliance sound the alarm across our land, so we can DEFEAT this stealthy attack on our freedom!

To stop the capitulation into the socialist nightmare of Agenda 21, it's absolutely imperative that patriotic Americans speak out and make their voices heard. This is our moment! Now is not the time to be found wanting.
And make it clear to Congress – June and Rio+20 with all its Leftist "green" propaganda is rapidly approaching AND AMERICA MUST NOT SIGN ONTO ANY AGENDA 21 OR GLOBAL WARMING SCAMS AT ALL.
We the People MUST DEMAND CONGRESS STAND STRONG FOR OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY. We MUST warn our fellow citizens, and prepare them for the deluge of media lies that will be flooding the airwaves from Rio, concealing the dirty business of international globalist treaty and agreement negotiations that will be occurring behind the scenes with Obama eco-extremists!



The very safety of your family and our nation is worth true sacrifice. Please act right now by sending your signed petition to Congress and the Senate – and consider including a generous gift that will help us send this alert to warn many thousands more Americans, so we can prevent this extreme, globalist environmental Marxism from becoming the law in our nation by Obama Executive Orders, by treaty or negotiated agreements, or by any other nefarious means.
Keep Faith,

P.S. It's appalling the number of elected officials who, by design or incompetence, neither uphold nor defend our Constitution. Anyone with more than a cursory knowledge of our Founding would see, as you do, that Agenda 21 in diametrically opposed to all for which America stands! Yet, sadly, it's down to you. Help "we the people" speak up loud and clear – for our nation's sake!

Our so-called "elites" have become corrupted and compromised. Enemies who hate America, despise liberty, and want the United States transformed from a Constitutional, commercial republic into a globalist, socialist state that is merely one among many are relentlessly advancing a seditious new plan – Agenda 21 – to make our nation a vassal of the United Nations.

It includes everything to destruction of our energy sectors, to U.N. control of our national parks, to Washington bureaucracy domination of our city and rural planning, to energy "smart meters" in your home – even Obama's collusion with international gun control fanatics pushing the U.N. Gun Ban!


https://secure.freedomdonations.com/dae/images/da_unagenda21globe.jpgAnd, for the first time ever in America's storied history, these opponents of American nationalism have a willing globalist accomplice in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. Obama leads the majority party, the Democrats, in the U.S. Senate where international treaties and U.N. pacts are ratified.

So the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will be of no assistance. It's up to "we the people" if Agenda 21 is to be fended off, and America kept the land of the free!

And now, as "we the people" become better informed and more organized in our resistance to the subversive designs of Agenda 21, its agents of implementation are being vigorously reinforced by none other than the vile leftist front organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)!


Incensed that lawmakers in Tennessee have recently passed a resolution condemning Agenda 21 as a "destructive and insidious" international environmental plan to advance communism under the guise of community planning, SPLC has pulled out their Alinsky playbook of demonization and ridicule.

The Southern Poverty Law Center's risible Hatewatch "report" condemns the passage of the Tennessee Legislature's Resolution 587 as a "new sign of anti-government extremism creeping into the political mainstream." That similar resolutions recently passed in New Jersey and North Carolina counties is not evidence of democracy in action, but rather, for the SPLC it "proves" that "extremists" are on the rise.

Falsely defaming Americans who want to stop Agenda 21 as conspiratorialists, bigots and haters – but of course, for the radical left, the truth is hate speech – SPLC calls our efforts at restored American federalism and nationalism a "big lie." Hatewatch savagely attacks the Tennessee resolution, as well as a resolution passed by the Republican National Committee in January 2012 in which policymakers informed Americans of the destructive strategies of "sustainable development."

Ironically, the actual conspiracy-mongering is all being done by the bogus SPLC and its fraudulent Hatewatch "report" – which has been thoroughly exposed as nothing but an empty fundraising front, while the Agenda 21 is a proven threat to our liberty!


https://secure.freedomdonations.com/dae/images/da_donttreadonme.jpgSince the year 2000, SPLC has scammed donors out of hundreds of millions of tax-free dollars on the pretense of "fighting hate" – yet virtually all of their alleged "hate incidents" (for which there is no legal definition and hence no legal recourse) turn out to be instances of offensive graffiti, vandalism, and "apparent hate group activity drawn from media sources" – mostly protected free speech! By its own accounting, the SPLC hasn't sued a "hate group" about anything in nearly five years, and has only done so three times since 2000.

That is not least of all because SPLC "hate groups" in fact are defined completely and arbitrarily by ideology – if the SPLC hates what you stand for, you are a "hate group" – which does NOT give them ANY standing to challenge political or policy opponents in court as "civil rights violators."

On the other hand, for we who resist Agenda 21, the United Nations' initiative of "sustainable development" and its false claim to alleviate poverty and combat global warming is explicit, manifest, and rapidly spreading across American governance – in violation of the Constitution. Tennessee's Resolution 587 describes sustainable development as a plan for eventual "socialist/communist redistribution of wealth" through energy conservation policies, zoning restrictions, and forced abortions.


Since my years of service as U.S. Ambassador under President Ronald Reagan, I've alerted America to a myriad of United Nations threats to America's sovereignty and security. But Agenda 21 is the most aggressive and ambitious attack on our nation to be put forth by the U.N. one-worlders for decades. Its Preamble states:

This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level."


Agenda 21 is overtly totalitarian, and inimical to our liberty in countless ways. I thus am calling on you, in my capacity as founder and director of Declaration Alliance (DA), to alert your Senators to this menace and repel it while there's still time.

You see, the Providential principles of our God-ordained Declaration of Independence are prudently applied in the U.S. Constitution, which states we the people are in charge of our Senators and Representatives. DA is a national organization of bold political activism directly dedicated to the pursuit of justice and to sustaining our Declaration principles in governance. We work to inform Congress and the nation of vital matters through alerts to the American people, activists, advocates, like-minded organizations, legislators and official agencies that support and sustain Founding principles of responsible self-government.


And America is in such jeopardy from Agenda 21 that patriots like you must act immediately or we can't stop its efforts to:

  • https://secure.freedomdonations.com/dae/images/da_sustaindevmindmap.gifEliminate private property rights,

  • Where we live,
  • What we eat,
  • What resources and energy sources we may use,
  • Where, when and how we can move (if at all).

I have been fighting such U.N. threats to our liberty all my professional life, battling to awaken America to the pervasive malignity of these ill-founded globalist initiatives. Bill Clinton knew Agenda 21's grasping assault on our freedoms would never be approved by We the People, and for good reason. So he went slowly, and concealed his administration's active participation behind alphabet organizations that hide the U.N. ownership of this radical, globalist usurpation of our sovereignty. Under the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) banner, J. Gary Lawrence, advisor to Clinton, said:

"Participating in a U.N. advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society. … This segment of our society who fear "one-world government" and a U.N. invasion of the United States…would actively work to defeat [Agenda 21]. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth."

Now, look at what one of the planners has to say about Agenda 21 and what it does:

"…proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on earth. … [I]t calls for specific changes in the activities of all people. … Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced."

Sound familiar?

"Conspiracy-fixated" – who "fears one-world government"! Or American patriot?

YOU – a law-abiding American Citizen – ARE THE ENEMY, according to the United Nations and the globalist quislings, who now have the power to crush your Constitutional freedoms unless we stop them now!

https://secure.freedomdonations.com/dae/images/da_icleiusa.gifIt should be enough to know that George Soros, the America-hating billionaire, is pushing Agenda 21 through his International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives. Piece by piece its directives are being implemented in America, with or without Senate ratification. You know that Obama "can't wait" for Senate or Congressional approval when he wants something. And anyway, Barack Obama's ally and funder Soros is pouring his money into Agenda 21's Barack Obama's ally and funder is pouring his money into its ratification – funds that are not yet being matched by those seeking its repudiation.

If we are to prevent this totalitarian treaty from becoming the law of our land, we must act QUICKLY! Demand your U.S. Senators be true to their oath of office: "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States." Let them know about Obama's Executive Order for Agenda 21 is utterly at odds with our Constitution, inimical to our republican form of governance, and hostile to America's history and tradition as "land of the free and home of the brave"!

Open their eyes to the fact that – by first targeting and then eliminating private property in the land of the free – this subversive eco-scam would effectively end our Constitutional Republic by transforming the United States into a subordinate, vassal state of the United Nations. Tell them a vote FOR Agenda 21 is a vote AGAINST the Constitution, AGAINST the United States of America, AGAINST the will of the people they were elected to serve!


And because Soros' money is flowing toward Agenda 21's bloodless coup of the United States, please include a generous, even sacrificial, gift to help Declaration Alliance sound the alarm across our land, and DEFEAT this stealthy attack on our freedom!

Your financial support is absolutely crucial if Declaration Alliance, a grassroots effort that solely depends on the generosity of patriots like you, is to expose and stop this seditious scheme!

https://secure.freedomdonations.com/dae/images/da_venndiagramsustain.gifWhat's more, please share this letter with family and friends. Bring them up to speed on this most-ambitious-of-all U.N. threats, thus helping Declaration Alliance spread the word far and wide.

Above all, be sure to bless DA with your best-possible gift, for our financial burden is great as we fight against the Marxist-driven tyranny that seeks to destroy our nation. Those who signed the Declaration and Constitution expect us to do our part to preserve what they so fearlessly founded for generations to come.

To stop the capitulation into the socialist nightmare of Agenda 21, it's absolutely imperative that patriotic Americans reach deep, sacrificially deep. This is our moment! Now is not the time to be found wanting.

The very safety of your family and our nation is worth true sacrifice. So act right now by returning your signed petition and including a generous gift that will help us keep this extreme, globalist environmental Marxism from becoming the law in America.


Keep Faith,


Alan Keyes

P.S. It's appalling the number of elected officials who, through intimidation from false leftist fronts like the SPLC, or by design or incompetence, neither uphold nor defend our Constitution. Anyone with more than a cursory knowledge of our Founding would see, as you do, that Agenda 21 in diametrically opposed to all for which America stands! Yet, sadly, it's down to you. Help "we the people" speak up loud and clear by enabling Declaration Alliance to warn of this dreadful fate that's befalling the land we love. For America's sake, help us keep the momentum building in the states and in Congress to resist and reject Agenda 21!

Climate Nazis
Alan Caruba Full Story

Al Gore, James Hansen, and even President Obama’s science advisor, John Holden, are card-carrying members of this cult

Climate Nazis



- Alan Caruba  

climate naziWhat is it with the “warmists”, Al Gore and his clones who keep insisting the Earth is warming, that too much carbon dioxide (CO2) will be the death of us, and that we have to immediately stop burning “fossil fuels” if we are to save the planet? They are the most relentless liars on the face of the planet.

They want us to cover the surface of the U.S. with solar panels and the mountains with wind turbines to generate the energy needed for everything we do. These Green energy alternatives are so wonderful they are producing a mere three percent of our current needs, require government subsidies and loan guarantees to exist, and tend not to be all that great when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.

So why are we still hearing from this discredited and disgraced bunch of charlatans and buffoons? In early May, The New York Times published “Game Over for the Climate” by a major offender of the truth, Dr. James Hansen, who for some reason is still the director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), despite having pocketed big bucks beyond his humble government salary. In 2007 he split a million dollar Dan Davis Prize with someone else and in 2001, received a $250,000 Heinz Award. Former GISS employees want him fired.

As debased as The Times is, in 2006 the American Association for the Advancement of Science selected Hansen to receive their Award for Scientific Freedom and Responsibility. I cite this as a warning that even a Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper and formerly respected science organization have long since gone over to the dark side when it comes to global warming. Nothing they have to say on the subject should be regarded as more than pure propaganda.

Suffice to say that Dr. Hansen’s opinion article cited every global warming lie we have been hearing since 1988 when he first gained famed testifying before a congressional committee that we were doomed. In his Times article, he predicted that the “semi-permanent drought” would turn the Midwest into “a dust bowl.” Like every other global warming prediction (that hasn’t come true) this will happen “over the next several decades.” Time enough for Dr. Hansen to pick up a few more awards and fatten his bank account.

The face of the global warming hoax, Al Gore, will not shut up. He made news in August 2011 when he totally lost it while speaking at the Aspen Institute. Anyone, noted climatologists, meteorologists, and mere science writers like myself were the target of his rant for actually citing things such as the fact that the Earth has been in a natural COOLING cycle since 1998 and other inconvenient facts about the climate.

“And some of the exact same people” said Gore, frothing at the mouth, “I can go down a list of their names—are involved in this. And so what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message. ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes’ Bullshit! ‘It may be sun spots.’ Bullshit! ‘It’s not getting warmer.’ Bullshit!”

The climate is not cooperating. The Church of Global Warming is crumbling around them. People are making fun of them. Parents are objecting to their scaring children with their lies. People actually want to warm their homes in winter and cool them in the summer. Meanwhile, using the global warming lies, the Environmental Protection Agency is trying to shut down the entire U.S. coal mining industry and attacking “fracking” to access natural gas. The Department of the Interior has virtually shut down all oil drilling on federal land and offshore. How crazed is all this?

One of their number, Dr. Peter Gleick, formerly of the American Geophysical Union’s Task Force on Scientific Ethics—the irony is too delicious—perpetrated a fraud against The Heartland Institute earlier this year, pretending to be a member of its board in order to secure a list of its donors and allegedly authoring a memo about a scheme to invade the nation’s schoolrooms with a program to dispute global warming. After confessing to the former, he resigned from the task force. An FBI probe is underway to determine if he broke any laws. Heartland has dubbed it “Fakegate”.

The Institute, by the way, is sponsoring its 7th annual conference on climate change, May 21-23, in Chicago, immediately following the NATO conference that will be held in the windy city where it is headquartered. Its theme this year is “Real Science, Real Choices.” Among the speakers will be Czech President Vaclav Klaus, Rep. James Sensenbrenner, vice chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, and two former NASA astronauts.

The lesson we can draw from the last few decades is that the entire environmental movement, of which the global warming hoax is one part, is an extension of what Dr. Robert Zubin, a Senior Fellow with the Center for Security Policy, addressed in his new book, “Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalism, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism.”

Antihumanism has been around a long time. As Dr. Zubin points out, it has taken the form of “Darwinism, eugenics, German militarism, Nazism, xenophobia, the population control movement, environmentalism, technophobia, and most recently, the incredibly demented climatophobic movement, which seeks to justify mass human sacrifice for the purpose of weather control.”

Al Gore, James Hansen, and even President Obama’s science advisor, John Holden, are card-carrying members of this cult. In 1971 Holden co-authored “Global Ecology” with Paul Ehrlich, famed for his 1968 book, “The Population Bomb.” They wrote “when a population of organisms grows in a finite environment, sooner or later, it will encounter a resource limit. This phenomenon, described by ecologists as reaching the ‘carrying capacity’ of the environment, applies to bacteria on a culture dish, to fruit flies in a jar of agar, and to buffalo on a prairie. It must also apply to man on this finite planet.”

So you need to understand that you are no better than a fruit fly and you need to die in order to avoid depleting the planet’s supply of food and its energy resources.

God knows I would like to ignore or—better still—never have to hear from these climate Nazis, but that is not going to happen so long as The New York Times, the United Nations, and a host of others keep repeating their lethal lies.

Convenient Lies and Governance of the Earth

 Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh Full Story

The Town too Tough to Die, Tombstone, Arizona,

Convenient Lies and Governance of the Earth



- Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh  

“The Powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.” (Tenth Amendment)

While the people of Tombstone, Arizona are waiting to get water back on line, the federal government is asking them for $80,000 in order to tell them why they cannot have it back unless they use only simple tools to do it with, like hand tools and wheelbarrows. Boulders the size of Volkswagens are trapping the waterlines, buried in some places under 12 ft of mud.

USDA Forest Service alludes to provisions in the Wilderness Act, which forbids the use of heavy machinery. According to Joe Wolverton, II, “water rights granted to Tombstone by the previous title owners predate the enactment of the Wilderness Act by about 80 years.” (The New American)

“The Town too Tough to Die” of 1,600 inhabitants had found itself in the middle of a terrible life and death quandary as a result of the Monument Fire in 2011 which destroyed the Huachuca Mountains pipelines carrying water to the town from the source in the Miller Canyon Wilderness Area. (Joe Wolverton, II, The New American)

According to Hugh Holub, water rights expert, quoted by Joe Wolverton, II, “Though the water may originate on National Forest lands, Bureau of Land Management lands, and other federally managed lands, the rights to that water belongs to the farms and ranches and cities.” Lawyers for this administration and environmentalists disagree.

The Club of Rome proclaims in their 1990 publication, The First Global Revolution, on page 75, “The common enemy of humanity is Man.” The paragraph beneath this title describes how they concocted the idea of man-made global warming.

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea of pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill…The real enemy is humanity itself.”

Water shortages can be real or government manufactured like the case of Tombstone, Arizona. The EPA started a “green war” against farmers in the fertile San Joaquin Valley in California; it left one of America’s main agricultural regions a dust bowl in 2009. The EPA-made drought put many farmers out of business, thousands became jobless, and millions of Americans paid higher prices for fruits and vegetables imported from other countries that could have been grown in California. EPA and the environmentalists protected a tiny fish, the delta smelt, while endangering humans.

Maurice Strong and Al Gore are members of the Club of Rome and involved in privately owned carbon-trading groups who stand to gain billions if the man-made global warming fraud survives and the EPA continues to destroy our economy, jobs, and our way of life.

A world government is gaining tract through social science consensus. There is nothing scientific about social science; it is strictly the opinion of a group of people who are in consensus or agreement concerning the need to regulate the planet in line with their beliefs. Science is exact and a fact. Social science is an opinion and a belief derived from personal experience, perception, or five-point scale surveys of groups of like-minded individuals and ignorant people.

In preparation for the UN Agenda Rio +20 conference in June 2012, F. Biermann et al., 33 social scientists, published in Science magazine on March 16, 2012, their contribution to the “earth system governance and planetary stewardship.” The article appears under the heading Science and Government, “Navigating the Anthropocene: Improving Earth System Governance.”

It does not take a rocket scientist to determine that government policy is not science, consensus is not scientific, and the liberals’ mantra, “global warming science is settled,” is a lie.

Biermann et al. proposed “seven building blocks,” the result of social science-based research conducted in 2011 by the Earth System Governance Project. This paper was designed to “contribute to the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, which will focus on the institutional framework for sustainable development and possible reforms of the intergovernmental governance system.” The writers believe that, in spite of differences of opinion among social scientists, there is an increasing consensus in many areas, therefore the planet must be ready for one world governance, erasing all traces of sovereignty in the name of saving the planet.

  1. A global environmental agency similar to the World Health Organization should be formed to set agendas, develop norms, manage compliance, assess science, and build capacity.
  2. Integrate sustainable development from local to global levels into a powerful United Nations Sustainable Development Council.
  3. “Better integration of sustainability governance requires governments to close remaining regulatory gaps at the global level,” including the sharing of nanotechnology, synthetic biology, and geo-engineering. Closing regulatory gaps explains the Executive Order on May 1, 2012 on Promoting International Regulatory Cooperation. “The purpose of the E.O. is to encourage the harmonization of regulatory requirements to simplify regulatory compliance, reduce costs for transnational companies and facilitate international trade.” (Jonathan H. Adler)
  4. Governments must place a “stronger emphasis on planetary concerns in economic governance.”
  5. Voting on global policy must be weighted for some countries and no veto power granted to anyone in order to speed up international norm setting.
  6. “Global governance through UN-type institutions tends to give a larger role to international and domestic bureaucracies, at the cost of national parliaments.” A simple translation - global governance would supersede national governments. Countries would be divided into regions and/or different interests such as environmentalists, industry, youth, etc. The United States would thus no longer have states; we would have regions and regionalism under the aegis of the United Nations Sustainable Development Council.
  7. Equity and fairness (read socialism/communism) would guide the transfer of wealth to poorer countries. The paper proposes “novel financial mechanisms to transfer wealth through global emissions markets and air transportation levies for sustainability purposes.” The middle class would completely disappear under such equity and fairness. Everyone would be equally poor and miserable, with the self-appointed global governance elites at the top.

The paper oozes a sense of urgency, like thieves trying to steal as much loot as possible before they are discovered and unmasked. These 33 social scientists do not want to stop just at transfer of wealth, destroying the middle class, erasing national boundaries, and neutering national governments, they want to “change the behavior of citizens,” and re-orient “the private sector toward a green economy.”

Global-warming policies and the threat to U.S.

'If we use God-given resources, then we can find ways to make the Middle-East less relevant'

By Kevin Mooney
WASHINGTON – Contrary to what Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told an environmental organization earlier this month, the threat to America’s geopolitical standing comes not from global warming but from anti-energy global warming policies, according to free market policy analysts and national security advocates.
During an annual reception held for the Environmental Defense Fund at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., Panetta described how abrupt environmental changes could unsettle populated areas and create international tension.
“The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security,” Panetta said at the reception. “Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.”
While it is possible for climate change to foster instability in certain areas of the world, updated scientific research indicates that the claims are greatly exaggerated and must be carefully weighed, Marlo Lewis, a senior fellow with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, has warned.
He cites a detailed study published in the official journal for the British Science Association that finds there has not been a single instance of a declared war fought over international fresh water sources over a period of five decades. Instead of fighting over water, the countries collaborate and import “virtual water” in the form of grain, the report says.
In response to Panetta’s talk, Marc Morano, the editor of Climate Depot, points out that the scientific rationale for restrictive energy policies has been greatly discredited in the past few years. He cites the unfolding “climategatescandal, that has implicated the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Britain. Emails leaked from CRU demonstrate how researchers manipulated and distorted scientific data when they could find no evidence of man-made global warming.
“Aside from the fact that the ‘national security’ angle rests on speculative doomsday scenarios, perhaps the biggest whopper of the new movement is the implication that we must pass the congressional climate bill to ‘address’ or ‘remedy’ the problem and thus ‘avoid’ future wars and loss of life,” Morano said. “Left unanswered in this argument is how a climate bill that will have no detectable impact on global temperatures will help ‘solve’ the alleged looming national security threat.”
Instead of fixating on dubious environmental claims, the CEI scholar Lewis has suggested that Defense officials shift their focus over to the national risks that could result from climate change policies.
“Today’s U.S. Army is the most fuel-intensive in history, and the Defense Department is the nation’s largest consumer of fossil fuels,” Lewis wrote in a policy paper.
Therefore, he said, it should interest the Defense Department that cap-and-trade programs are designed to “make fossil fuels more costly.”
The policies green pressure groups have advanced on Capitol Hill, and at the state level, are rooted in a regulatory concept known as the “Precautionary Principle,” Lawrence Kogan, CEO of the Institute for Trade Standards and Sustainable Development, a non-profit legal research group, explained in an interview.
The Precautionary Principle, as it is defined by environmental groups within the European Union and the United Nations, calls for the suspension of any proposed activity or enterprise until after environmental allegations are satisfied, even if a cause-and-effect relationship has not been scientifically established.
“The same fear-based, anti-corporate and luddite mindset that has been so destructive to European companies and economies has been incorporated into the EU Commission international trade policy and systematically exported to America and the world,” Kogan said. “Nothing less than America’s free enterprise system, individual freedoms and international interests – its core political and economic values – are at stake.”
Nowhere is the Precautionary Principle more entrenched and deeply embedded than within the Law of Sea Treaty. Secretary Panetta made the case for ratification during his talk.

“We are the only industrialized nation that has not approved that treaty,” he lamented.
Panetta views the treaty as a way to clear up disputes concerning navigation rights.
But opponents like Kogan and Frank Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, are concerned that the treaty will transfer U.S. sovereignty to the authority of foreign tribunals, which will rule on U.S. seabed mining and military transportation.
“The innocent passage of U.S. nuclear-powered military vessels,” write Kogan and former Navy secretary J. William Middendorf, could be stymied by lawyers claiming hypothetical environmental risks.
Undermining border security
The Precautionary Principle is also invoked by environmental groups that are working with open-border advocates intent on stopping construction of a security fence on the U.S.-Mexico border. Under the guise of wilderness protection, they are pushing for legislation that could result in an accelerated flow of illegal immigration, drug smuggling and human trafficking from Mexico into Arizona, according to law enforcement experts familiar with the terrain.
Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., sponsored two bills in 2009 that could have been used to prevent federal and state law enforcement officials from patrolling an already porous border area that extends from Sonora, Mexico, into Santa Cruz County, Ariz. Grijalva wanted to extend federal wilderness protection to 84,000 acres of the Tumacacori Highlands.
The area within the Coronado National Forest is adjacent to an already designated wilderness area running along the Mexican border.
Zack Taylor, a retired U.S. Border Patrol officer, is alarmed.
He says giving the area the legal cover of a “wilderness” designation could have the practical effect of pushing the Mexican border 30 miles northward. Taylor says U.S. border agents have to move fast along the U.S.-Mexico border to be effective. But Grijalva’s bills would create a “safe haven” for smugglers and drug dealers.
“Each stretch of the border has its own solution,” he explained. “Once you have success in catching smugglers and illegal aliens at a particular crossing point the next group simply moves laterally along the line, and then the border patrol must respond. They [smugglers and illegal aliens] are the ones who decide where the Border Patrol works, not the Border Patrol.”
But even without any new legislation, the environmental restrictions already in place work to the great disadvantage of America’s national security, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, explained in an interview.
“The drug cartels love our wilderness designation areas on the border because that’s where they can cross,” Poe observed. “They know our border protections have restrictions and that they cannot use four-wheelers in certain areas, and they have to go on horseback or on foot. But, the drug cartels did not get the memo about protecting the environment. We see everything discarded along these routes, all kinds of debris. These [environmental] designations give the cartels a way to come into the U.S.”
Poe continued: “The intentions of the environmentalists may be good, but their policy is failing. If we allowed the border patrol to do its job, the result would be less environmental damage, and improved national security.”
The status of the Keystone Pipeline XL, which would stretch from the oil sand fields in Alberta, Canada, to refineries in the southern U.S., has been source of continued tension between the Obama administration and Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
TransCanada, the company overseeing the project, recently submitted a new application, which included a revised pathway that would avoid parts of Nebraska. Poe anticipates that there could be severe geopolitical ramifications for the U.S. if the project is blocked.
“You cannot really separate the national security questions from the economic,” he said. “We should deal more with Canada and Mexico. If we use our own God-given resources, and develop them in a safe way, then we can find ways to make the turmoil in the Middle East less relevant to our energy needs.”
American workers will lose out if the Keystone Pipeline does not move forward, Poe added, because Canada most likely will sell the crude oil to China. He also said the impact could be particularly severe in Port Arthur, Texas, which is part of his district.
“Port Arthur, Texas, is the refinery capital of world,” he said.
The impact of environmentalism on American national security has also figured into the Republican primary contest between incumbent Sen. Richard Lugar and Richard Mourdock, a tea party favorite, who is currently the state treasurer. Mourdock won a resounding victory in the primary, sending Lugar home after more than three decades in Washington.
“The irony is that it is own energy policy that is threat to our national security, not climate reality,” Mourdock said during a conference call. “We are basing our energy policy on the greatest hoax of all time, which is that mankind is changing climate.”
Mourdock also criticized Lugar for backing the Law of Sea Treaty.
“Unlike Sen. Lugar I do not view the United Nations as the answer to every international problem,” he said. “He doesn’t think the U.S. should ever act unilaterally.”

James Inhofe and “Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda will Dismantle America and “Climategate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the Global Warming Scam” by Brian Sussman.

DOE Looking to Harness Energy From Ocean Waves Off Hawaii 



Chart of the Week: Taxes Soaring Past Highest Level Ever

Posted By Rob Bluey On May 20, 2012 @ 3:05 pm In Entitlements,Scribe |

Americans are facing an unprecedented $494 billion tax hike [1] on Jan. 1, 2013. It’s been dubbed “Taxmageddon

 [2]” given the economic devastation [3] it would cause.

Conventional wisdom suggests lawmakers in Washington will wait until the 11th hour to come up with a solution. Fortunately, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced last week he won’t wait for a lame-duck session of Congress. From his speech to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s 2012 Fiscal Summit [4]:

Tax hikes destroy jobs – especially an increase on the magnitude set for January 1st. Small businesses need to plan. We shouldn’t wait until New Year’s Eve to give American job creators the confidence that they aren’t going to get hit with a tax hike on New Year’s Day. Any sudden tax hike would hurt our economy, so this fall – before the election – the House of Representatives will vote to stop the largest tax increase in American history.

The bulk of Taxmageddon comes from expiration of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts, but also means the child tax credit will be cut in half, the Alternative Minimum Tax patches end, the Death Tax returns to its 2001 level, and a handful of new Obamacare tax hikes take effect.

Here’s the outlook under Heritage’s Federal Budget in Pictures [5]:

If this isn’t enough to scare you, then the prospect of waiting until after the November election should be. Here are five good reasons [6] from Heritage’s J.D. Foster why Congress should act now:

  1. Families and small businesses should not be threatened by their own government with a devastating tax hike.
  2. A massive tax hike would obviously devastate the economy in 2013 and beyond, but the uncertainty about how, when, and even whether Congress will prevent Taxmageddon is already adding to the large cloud of uncertainties hanging over the economy, threatening to slow job growth even further.
  3. Congress has no excuse for threatening families and the economy with this tax hike with the entire summer legislative schedule wide open for business.
  4. Many Members of Congress of both parties agree with President Obama on the need for fundamental tax reform. Allowing Taxmageddon to go into effect would raise tax rates while increasing the tax on saving and investment—the opposite of tax reform’s results. Even though positive reforms are extremely unlikely in 2012, Congress can prevent a severe case of sound policy backsliding and create more opportunities for exploring positive options for tax reform in the balance of the year by preventing Taxmageddon quickly.
  5. Elections are referendums on past decisions and on the future direction of the country. Voters should be able to judge performance of their Members on more than just vague assurances. Those favoring raising taxes should have the opportunity to vote their beliefs while challengers announce their fidelity to higher taxes, and likewise for those favoring low taxes and limited government. Citizens can vote their beliefs based on solid information.

Conservatives should applaud Boehner for seeking a solution [7] sooner rather than later. But without action from the do-nothing Senate, there’s little hope of stopping this enormous and unprecedented tax increase before November.

on U.N. Human Rights Advocates Urge G8 to Take Up ‘Robin Hood Tax’ on Wealthy Nations

“But it would help relieve sovereign debt load stemming from the financial crisis, shift the burden from ordinary citizens to the private sector which caused the crisis, and significantly enlarge government fiscal space for spending on desperately needed economic and social rights programs." [Cephas Lumina, whose title is “independent expert on foreign debt and human rights”]
Obamanomics is loved by the one world order U.N. crowd who, not being satisfied with watching the deleterious effects of socialism piecemeal to include America's destruction from within by Obama's war on the private sector, want to globalize same ASAP so that "the private sector" will no longer exist worldwide in favor of a Marxist Socialist Utopia, which is a lie of the "father-of-lies" leading to man's complete subjugation by a ruling elite as the word "jobs" will cease to exist in favor of the word "misery" except of course for the ruling politburo of thieves. 
A seminal fact is willfully being ignored here in that robbing from the rich ensures that the poor will have no chance to better themselves because the rich serve a purpose in creating jobs that are not dependent upon governments for existence, and therein lies the problem for the one world order globalist control freaks on perpetual power trips who want to dictate every aspect of our lives in a Godless globalist gulag where no opposition is tolerated!

RUSH: Donna in Frederick, Maryland, thank you for calling.  Great to have you here on the EIB Network.  Hi.

CALLER:  Hi, Rush.  It's a privilege.  Congrats on your award this week, and I have to humor you.  When I tuned in earlier, I actually thought I was hearing Bill Clinton's voice.  You've perfected it quite a bit there, Rush.

RUSH:  I appreciate that.  Thank you very much.

CALLER:  But the reason why I'm calling is there's been a lot in the media lately where they're concerned about what's going to happen with Joe the burden -- I mean Joe Biden, our vice president, as far as the upcoming elections. So I was curious about your take on the possible shake down, so to speak.

RUSH:  Tell you what.  Since you called, I've got a couple Biden sound bites that just rolled in here.  I want to play those sound bites and then I'll tell you some of the things I think could happen in terms of a rabbit being pulled out of a hat.  Here is Biden.  He's in Youngstown, Ohio, this afternoon at a campaign event.


BIDEN:  Things really are starting to come back.  There are signs of life and hope in the Heartland.  Jobs are starting to come back.  And the ones that are coming back are the kind of jobs you can build a middle class family on.  They're manufacturing jobs, decent paying jobs so you can live in a safe neighborhood, own your home, not rent your home.  If the kid wants to, be able to send your kid to college, or send 'em to trade school.

RUSH:  All right.  He might be talking about Wisconsin.  Now, he's in Youngstown, Ohio, but he might be talking about Wisconsin, where, you know what?  Jobs are being created.  Jobs are being created in Wisconsin because of Governor Scott Walker, because of some of the policies at the state level.  But overall, this is bunk.  I have a lot of charts.  Jim Pethokoukis, our buddy at American Enterprise Institute, heard that Biden said this, and he's a think tank guy, so he went to his tank and he started thinking.  And he produced a bunch of charts... And to try to describe a chart is impossible, but the charts simply confirm everything you know. 

Jobs are not coming back.  Everything he said in this bite is nothing more than a dream.  It's smoke and mirrors.  But he's out there screaming on the campaign trail, "Republicans don't get us. Jobs are coming back! Middle class, gonna be able to send your kid to college."  Everybody  knows this is bunk.  They're desperate.  Biden's being sent out there, and he's on his own. They're simply trying to create an alternative universe where they want you to think everything for everybody else is happening and you're next. It's going great guns. It may not be happening for you, but where are we today in Youngstown, Ohio, boy, it's really coming back. Things are hot to trot. It's gonna get better. You're going to be able to get a manufacturing job, support your family of four, send your kid to college. It's happening. It's happening.  And you're supposed to sit there and say, "Wow, cool, all right. Finally." You don't see any evidence of it, but he's the vice president, he's saying it.  So the game is you're supposed to believe it and think it's happening for others and may be right around the corner for you.  One more sound bite from Biden.

BIDEN:  I resent when they talk about families like mine that I grew up in. I resent the fact that they think we're talking about envy, it's job envy, it's wealth envy, that we don't dream.  My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be, I could vice president.  My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire.  My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams.  They don't get us.  They don't get who we are.

RUSH:  Well, then why is your administration so against millionaires?  Why is your administration trying to target and punish them?  Why is your administration blaming them for everything that's gone wrong, Mr. Vice President?  Why is your administration single-handedly doing everything they can to discourage people from becoming millionaires, because they're bad people?  You guys don't inspire people to be the best they can be.  Mr. Vice President, with all respect, sir, your party tells people how impossible it is for them in this country because the deck is stacked against them.  There's either discrimination or there's racism or there's sexism or there's bigotry, or the rich are taking all the money, or Bush spent all the money or whatever.  The last thing you do in the Democrat Party is inspire people.  And you do try to kill people's dreams. 

You're trying to convince people the only route they've got to any kind of happiness is through government.  A government program for that, for this.  This is just ridiculous.  But now what could they do?  What rabbit could they pull out?  Well, a couple of them, as I've mentioned, Obama sometime this summer, October, could decide to forgive all student loans in an effort to get the youth vote.  He can do that. He could propose it.  It doesn't have to happen.  He can say he wants it, just like he said he hopes one day that same-sex people can get married.  People open up their checkbooks to him.  He didn't make one bit of difference in the whole issue, but he said something.  He could say he wants to forgive people's mortgages, come up with a program that pays everybody's mortgages who is underwater.  He's president.  He can do these things. He can propose them, even if they don't happen immediately.  He can try to convince people that that's what he's gonna do if he's reelected.  That that's what he's gonna do now. 

Romney can't say anything like that.  The question, if it continues this way for Obama, and if they keep floundering, a proposal like that, my thinking is, would not have broad based appeal because it would be such a reach.  It would be so obvious what it is.  They could replace Biden on the ticket with somebody.  Could invade Iran.  Could tell the Israelis to stand aside.  There's any number of things in the incumbent playbook that you can do at the last moment.  Could come up with some dastardly deed that Romney's been involved in, but they'll probably have exposed all those by that time.


RUSH:  I just sent the charts I talked about from our buddy Jim Pethokoukis at the think tank, American Enterprise Institute, I sent 'em up to Koko and will put 'em on RushLimbaugh.com.  They're really devastating charts.  It's a great way to see the real economic decline and the fact that Biden is simply dreaming when he's talking about things coming back and recovering, and pay special attention to the labor force chart.  The labor force participation rate, pay special attention to the decline.  That chart is devastating, to show you the number of people no longer in the workforce in this country.  So we've sent it up to Koko and he'll get it up there as quickly as we can update the site.

Obama Cites Kenyan Family Members’ Pledge "Economic Growth Can't Just Be for the Lucky Few"
Translation:  There's no way that I, Obama the magnificent, am going to allow the rich to be economically successful, as that would cause a great danger to my complete transformation of America into a Marxist Socialist State in that they would create jobs which would stop my ever dependent government dole from being populated with the voting serfs that I need to stay in power. 
No, we must continue to demonize the word "success" to the point that it will never again be a part of America's vocabulary with class warfare doing the trick by ensuring that there will only be two classes, the ruling politburo living high on the hog, and those aforementioned serfs depending upon my mercy for their existence!

The hits keep coming: Project Veritas exposes non-citizens, dead people registered to vote in NC — and so much more


By Michelle Malkin  •  May 15, 2012 10:01 AM


Fraud? What voter fraud? While progressives continue to deny, deny, deny, investigative journalist James O’Keefe and Project Veritas continues to expose, expose, expose.
The latest target: North Carolina.
Project Veritas pulled up jury refusal forms and voter history documents to show that non-citizens and dead people there are registered to vote.
Watch as a man posing as a non-citizen with a passport is stubbornly encouraged by NC officials — who refuse to examine his ID — to vote. Listen to a conversation with election officials who joke about running over Supreme Court justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Listen to the election judge who only wants to uphold certain parts of the state constitution. And witness a University of North Carolina official chuckling as a “student” brags about voting in two different states to infiltrate GOP primaries.
As I wrote last week in my column on voter fraud:

Over the past five months, investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have exposed systemic lapses at precincts in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Vermont and Washington, D.C. The ballots of famous public figures have been forked over to complete strangers; disenfranchisement of legitimate voters is routine. While Minnesota and New Hampshire legislators have passed new voter integrity/identification laws, O’Keefe now has been targeted for investigation and possible prosecution for blowing the whistle. And Attorney General Eric Holder is striking his usual see-no-evil, shoot-the-messenger, play-the-race-card pose.
The solution isn’t to sit back and bemoan a fantastical global conspiracy. The solution is to get off the couch, support election integrity activists like O’Keefe, and turn out in force on Election Day to eject Obama’s voter fraud coddlers. Like the old saying goes: If it ain’t close, they can’t cheat.

Donate to Project Veritas here and support the voter integrity investigations that the MSM won’t do.

on Influential panel calls for steep reduction of US nuclear weapons 

A "Global Zero" is what America is going to become if these proposed treasonous cuts in our nuclear arsenal by those who want to unilaterally disarm us in the face of our enemies arming to the teeth are allowed to occur. 
These things happen when you have a COMMUNIST in the White House! 

Panel Urges Steep US Nuclear Cuts


Panel including former commander of US nuclear forces Gen. James Cartwright calls for 80 percent reduction of US nuclear weapons, as group argues drastic cuts by US and Russia could open way for arms control talks with countries like China.




Policymakers Should Disregard “Global Zero” Report Posted By Rebeccah Heinrichs On May 17, 2012 @ 5:30 pm In American Leadership |

Yesterday the “Global Zero” report, chaired by retired Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General James Cartwright, unpersuasively argued that the U.S. should reduce its nuclear arms to the dangerously low number of 900, of which only half would be deployed. The report also recommends “de-alerting” the U.S. force, making it less capable, and getting rid of the land-based leg of the nuclear triad, making the force less resilient.
Disarmers like President Barack Obama will undoubtedly use this report as an authoritative document defending their plans to continue to lower the number of U.S. nuclear weapons. After all, in March of this year, the President made the flippant remark that the United States has “more nuclear weapons than we need.”
The authors begin their “study” with the conclusion already determined: The goal is to rid the world of nuclear weapons. This is not a national security objective; it is an academic one, driven by an emotional opposition to nuclear weapons themselves. The authors’ goal was not to determine what the U.S. requires to prevent nuclear war, or in the event nuclear war ensues, to win it. On these grounds alone, the report should be dismissed as an unhelpful—indeed, perilous—contribution to national security policymaking.
If one begins with the goal of protecting the American people and allies in an increasingly unpredictable and dangerous world with multiple nuclear powers that have disparate value systems and national goals, then one would conclude the U.S. must maintain and possibly
increase the number, in some cases the characteristics, and precision of its nuclear weapons to hold a variety of targets at risk with the most capable weapons.
Because the U.S. values innocent life—even the lives dictatorships don’t—the U.S. must maintain a nuclear force that credibly targets the war-making apparatus of foes and potential foes—not population centers.
What would the makeup of nuclear weapons look like if the U.S. provided credible assurances to Japan? Europe? Allies in the Middle East? If our allies doubt U.S. assurances, it would only make sense that they would acquire nuclear weapons to defend themselves.
Deterrence is an art, and it involves assessing what foes and allies may perceive as constituting credible deterrence and assurance, respectively. Policymakers who take seriously the government’s solemn responsibility to provide for the common defense should take the greatest pains to ensure that the U.S. strikes this balance. This requires humility and the realization that we are in uncertain times—and the stakes are too high to test out impetuous academic theories like the one the Cartwright report advocates.
Lowering the number of nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal, allowing the weapons complex and stockpile to deteriorate, and tying the hands of the U.S. by signing on to any other arms control agreement would likely embolden America’s foes, spur nuclear proliferation, and increase the likelihood of nuclear war.

Political opportunism of the worst kind
Jerry Philipson Full Story

National security be damned, Obama was prepared to take full advantage of the opportunity that presented itself

Political opportunism of the worst kind

- Jerry Philipson  

A leak of classified information last week by a person or persons unknown in the Obama administration compromised the national security of the United States.

The nature of the details which were leaked means that the leak had to have been made by a person or persons occupying a very high position in the administration. Speculation is that the leak was made so that President Obama could take credit for a successful operation which involved an agent infiltrating al-Qaeda and delivering a highly sophisticated and virtually undetectable new underwear bomb it had developed to U.S. officials, a bomb which by all accounts was going to be blown up on an incoming commercial flight to the U.S. and which would have resulted in massive loss of life.

In reality, the American contribution to the operation was minimal…it was a joint British/Saudi Arabian operation, the agent who penetrated al-Qaeda was a Saudi with a British passport and America only got involved in it at the very end and never played any kind of a lead role.

The American, British and Saudi/Arabian intelligence communities are furious because the operational details which were leaked meant that the operation had to be cut short and that it will be much harder to penetrate al-Qaeda in the future and gain first hand knowledge of its methods, capabilities and plans, if it can be done at all. The leak will also make foreign intelligence agencies much more wary of working with their U.S. counterparts. They were already wary because of past leaks and other unfortunate incidents and this leak will only serve to make a bad situation worse.

All of this clearly compromises America’s national security.

Congress is considering several investigations into the leak, the FBI is looking into it and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has ordered an internal review of the 16 agencies he controls, a review which predictably won’t include the White House or National Security Council though. Despite all these investigations it is highly unlikely that the identity of the person or persons who leaked the classified information will ever be known, especially if they are close to Obama. That would reflect very badly on him and therefore cannot be allowed to happen for fear of losing votes. Two things are clear however. He, she or they are very high up on the food chain in the administration and the motive for the leak had to have been to enhance Obama and his administration’s national security credentials in this election year and thus improve his chances of being returned to office. Burnishing Obama’s national security bona fides in the eyes of the electorate…that was the motive for the leak. Never mind that it compromised national security and never mind that America’s involvement in the operation was minimal. The political and public relations value of Obama taking credit for the operation was obvious and it was an opportunity that couldn’t be passed up.

Or so the perpetrator(s) thought.

There are many things that remain unclear about this whole sorry episode though and one of them is the extent of Obama’s involvement or lack of same, whether he authorized it, whether he heard about it and did nothing to stop it or whether he knew nothing about it and found out about it after the fact. We’ll probably never find those things out either, although it seems very odd that there was a press conference planned about the operation before the leak began attracting so much criticism. All things considered it seems inconceivable that he didn’t at least know about it beforehand in some fashion.

Did Obama authorize the leak? Did he hear about it and do nothing to stop it? Did he know nothing about it and find out about it after the fact? Who knows? Who will ever know?

One thing we do know however. National security be damned, he was prepared to take full advantage of the opportunity that presented itself and would have done so like he’s done in the past if he thought that the benefits would outweigh the consequences.

For himself, not the country.

That’s political opportunism of the worst kind.

That’s our President.




Morning Bell: America’s Antique Air Force

Posted By Mike Brownfield On May 18, 2012 @ 9:07 am In Protect America |

America’s flying fortress, the Cold War-era B-52 bomber, has been in service for the last 50 years, running missions in Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm, Afghanistan and the war in Iraq. It’s a striking example of how America’s military is being forced to do more with less, relying on decades-old technology to confront today’s challenges. Unfortunately, the B-52 is only one example of the United States’ geriatric fighting force, and with mounting cuts to the military, America’s ability to defend itself is increasingly called into question.

In a new “America at Risk” video [1] from The Heritage Foundation, David A. Deptula, a retired three-star general, gives his view of America’s aging Air Force. It’s a story he has experienced first hand. Deptula flew an F-15 for the first time in 1977, and 30 years later, his son, Lt. David A. Deptula II, flew the same F-15 at Kadena Air Force Base in Japan. The fighter, which was initially planned to have a 4,000-hour service life, later saw its mission extended to 8,000 hours. Heritage’s Rob Bluey reports[1] on one harrowing incident where Deptula came face to face with the consequences of stretching U.S. forces to their limits:

While serving as the joint task force commander in 1998 and 1999 for Operation Northern Watch, Deptula flew 82 combat missions over Iraq [2]. On one mission, as he was headed to a tanker to refuel, the master caution light came on, revealing a problem with the plane. His fuel gauge went to zero. Meanwhile, he was 500 miles away from his base. Fortunately, he was able to land safely.

‘The insulation was so old it simply had deteriorated to the extent where it came off and all of the wiring shorted out,’ Deptula explained. ‘Those are the kinds of things that happen when airplanes get to certain ages.’

While his aircraft was grounded, another set of airplanes traveled from Kadena Air Force Base in Japan, on other side of the world, to replace the one that was being repaired.

Ultimately, the Air Force was forced to  ground its entire F-15 fleet[3] after one fighter disintegrated during a training mission in Missouri in 2007. In a new paper, Heritage’s Steven Bucci explains[4] the consequences of continuing the trend of cutting the military and stretching U.S. forces:

The Obama Administration is seemingly trying to find ways to pay for the expansion of entitlement spending programs at the expense of the military force, arguing that military spending is a drain on the economy rather than a protector of American society.

While everyone, including military leadership, wants more efficiencies, cutbacks in military programs motivated solely by cost savings are ill-advised. Cutting many of the at-risk programs will leave the U.S. military where they were post-World War II and post-Cold War: hollow and ill-prepared for growing threats.

Stretching the life of military aircraft puts our fighting men and women in mortal danger, and it poses threats for the U.S. armed forces as a whole. In Heritage’s video, Deptula says, “I hear people talk about, well you know, the U.S. military spends more money than the next 17 nations combined. Well, the next 17 nations combined are not committed to maintaining peace and stability around the world. We are.” But in order to keep that commitment, Congress and the Administration must ensure that the U.S. military has the resources it needs to carry out its mission of protecting America.

If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep It? Not at Franciscan University of Steubenville

May 16, 2012

All Audio & Video »


RUSH: There are a couple stories in the Stack here, and this is such a trick.  There's a story about health care, about how if it's repealed, some people are going to lose a trillion dollars, health care organizations and so forth.  They are counting money they don't even have yet and assuming they're going to lose it.  The whole point is to make sure they don't get the trillion dollars because we don't have it.  In the meantime, a Catholic organization, school, church, whatever it is, Catholic, small university has canceled its health care plan because it will not implement the demands of Obama on contraception, and so people that have their health care plans through that Catholic organization are gonna lose their health care. 


And the point of that is that Obama's out there promising everybody, "If you like your plan, you get to keep it."  That was one of his big sales pitches during the whole debate leading up to the vote on Obamacare, and it certainly isn't true.  It's the Franciscan University of Steubenville.  They're out of there.  And everybody who has health insurance through the Franciscan University of Steubenville is gonna lose it because they refuse to implement and compromise their religious independence and liberty.  They refuse to implement Obama's health care rules on contraception.  So people there are gonna lose their plan.  They like their plan, they're going to lose it.  But this Catholic organization is staying true to its vows, if you will. 


RUSH:  By the way, the Franciscan University of Steubenville is saying Obamacare is going to triple their costs, the cost of premiums.  Obamacare will triple the cost of premiums.  They can't afford it.  The people that work for 'em and get their health care through them can't afford it.  They're outta there.  Now, the media is trying to make this sound like it's just a matter of the Catholics being stubborn, the Catholics stubbornly sticking to their beliefs in an old-fashioned, worn-out, out-of-touch manner.  And plus, of course, they're being stubborn because they have this silly point they have to prove about Obama. 

So this church, this university, sticking to its guns, its vows, it's principles, is under assault now from the mainstream media. But the Franciscan University of Steubenville said that the students basic $600 policy was going to double in cost in the fall and triple next year and that the school's insurance provider said that the increases were the result of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, that's Obamacare.  Premiums will triple, $600 to $1800 by next year until the thing is repealed. 


Now, Grover Norquist has his no-tax pledge.  A group out there has a repeal Obamacare pledge that they're asking candidates to sign.  Deb Fischer signed it.  And so that group is making hay that their repeal Obamacare pledge is resonating with voters.  But the point is no matter where you go there are people actively working to get this repealed, thrown out, defeated, what have you. 

Somebody like Deb Fischer comes along and there are a lot of people that want to claim responsibility for it.  You know, success has many fathers.  Failure is an orphan.  But the fact of the matter is that as we get closer and closer to the reality of Obamacare being fully implemented, people are rising up in every which way they can as to say "no" to it and to stop it.  And this Franciscan University of Steubenville is just one example of countless hundreds of thousands that will have the same thing happen to them. 

Everybody's premiums are gonna go up.  Maybe not triple, maybe quadruple in some cases, but they're gonna go up, they're gonna skyrocket, and if you like your plan, you are not gonna be able to keep it because what is proven here by the Franciscan University of Steubenville. Do not doubt me on this.  The whole purpose -- and you know this; we talked about this before Obamacare was even voted on.  One of the substantive objectives of Obamacare is to wipe out the private sector health insurance industry.  Obamacare and the Democrats want single payer.  They want government-run, government-sponsored, government paid-for health care.  They want you having no other option than a federal or state exchange for your health insurance.  But they can't come out and say that.  They wouldn't get a single vote on the Republican side. They'd get some Democrat votes for it, but they can't come out and say that they want to eliminate the option for citizens to buy health insurance in the private market. 

So what do they do?  That's the purpose of the fines, by the way, for not having health insurance.  The fines are so low you choose the fine rather than buy -- (interruption) Obama said to the SEIU, "We can't do this all at once." It's going to take us 10 or 15 years to make this happen through evolution.  It's gonna have to evolve to this point.  But the reason the fines are so low is to make the fines more attractive than having a policy.  If a policy costs you $1500 and the fine costs you $500, what are you gonna do?  If you're young especially.  You're gonna pay the $500 fine.  But you're not buying insurance.  Therefore, you are not in the market.  Therefore, an insurance company's not benefiting from your fine.  The government is.  The whole point of this is to wipe out the private sector insurance industry and having universities like the Franciscan University of Steubenville pull out is exactly the objective. 







Side Effects: Obamacare’s CO-OPs Put Taxpayer Dollars at Risk for No Good Reason Posted By Alyene Senger On May 16, 2012 @ 5:00 pm In Health Care |

Yet another provision of Obamacare is expected to cost taxpayers more than they expected. The House Energy and Commerce Committee recently sent a letter [2] to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) asking for details regarding the probable loss of $3.1 billion out of the $3.4 billion in Obamacare loans to its Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (“CO-OP”). The estimate comes from the President’s Budget Appendix [3], and the committee is considering rescinding funds that haven’t already been obligated.
The Obamacare initiative gives CMS the authority to award $3.4 billion in loan subsidies to states to fund start-up costs and to help meet state solvency requirements for the health plans in the CO-OP initiative, The Committee’s letter explains [2] that these loans are a bad investment for taxpayers: “[T]he amount of expected losses is estimated to be about $3.1 billion of the $3.4 billion appropriated (91 percent). These losses exceed the estimate HHS presented in its proposed rule.”
The loss of taxpayer dollars is a serious concern. In addition, the committee also raises further concerns with CO-OP’s potential effect on the insurance market. The letter cites research showing [2] that “Past instances of insurer insolvency demonstrate the severe negative impact on the insurance markets.”
It’s also important to realize that Obamacare’s acronym is a bit misleading. The original term co-op stands for co-operative, meaning a private organization owned jointly by its members. Co-op insurance plans are policyholder-owned, nonprofit health insurance issuers that offer qualified health care plans to individuals and small groups in the states. They’ve actually existed for over a century, often called “mutual” insurers; they include major insurance companies such as Northwestern Mutual and State Farm.
The Obamacare initiative is CO-OP, a deceptive acronym that really just represents another government program. Heritage expert Stuart Butler explains [4], “[The] CO[-]OP program has start-up funds provided by the federal government and allocated by a federal board. The new membership plan cannot even be an existing co-op organization.”
Obamacare makes it more difficult for private co-ops to succeed. As Heritage expert Ed Haislmaier explains [5], “[T]he legislation expressly prohibits the most likely and sensible path to setting up a co-op insurer, namely, a divestiture or conversion by an existing health insurer…The only way to create one of the proposed co-op insurers is to start one from scratch—an inherently lengthy, uncertain, and expensive task.” The CO-OP program proves this with the estimated loss of $3.1 billion of its loan.
Furthermore, this provision of Obamacare is a complete waste of tax dollars. If Congress did want to encourage member-owned health insurers, which is a reasonable idea, Haislmaier explains that a change in the tax code would suffice. Haislmaier writes [5], “[A] simple and almost no-cost change in tax law [6] granting mutual health insurers tax-exempt status (the same as currently enjoyed by credit unions, which are essentially ‘cooperative’ banks) would suffice. But that is not the case under Obamacare.”
Much like the rest of Obamacare, the CO-OP initiative is an example of how government distorts good ideas in health policy and wastes taxpayer dollars.

Obamacare cronyism: The First Lady’s patient-dumping, privacy-meddling scheme

Obamacare’s Patient-Dumping, Privacy-Meddling Scheme
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2012
The stench of Chicago cronyism over the White House just got fouler. Inhale this:
A shadowy $10 billion Obamacare agency with zero oversight just awarded first lady Michelle Obama’s pet patient-dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Medical Center a $5.9 million taxpayer-funded grant. It will enable Mrs. Obama’s cronies to build a government-sponsored electronic medical record-sharing system.
The Chicago program, known as the Urban Health Initiative, is run by one of President Obama’s closest golfing buddies, scandal magnet Eric Whitaker, who has been entangled with Illinois corruption celebrities Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko over the past decade.
Fun fact: Whitaker recently was named by author Edward Klein as the man who purportedly offered hate-mongering Rev. Jeremiah Wright $150,000 in hush money during the 2008 campaign. (More here.)
The nearly $6 million grant was announced last week by the “Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation” at the Department of Health and Human Services. White House watchdog journalist Keith Koffler notes that “some 3,000 applications were received for a share on the $1 billion in 3-year grants available. Only 26 programs were included in the first batch of awards doled out.” The administration grants circumvent any and all congressional deliberation as part of Team Obama’s election-year “We Can’t Wait” initiatives.
The grant recipients will help fulfill the mandated Obamacare vision of a centralized patient-record database with unprecedented federal oversight. The provision is being challenged in court by the Goldwater Institute for forcing Americans to share “with millions of strangers who are not physicians confidential private and personal medical history information they do not wish to share.”
HHS denies any favoritism, citing a “competitive, objective” process. But as I first reported in March, a Congressional Research Service analysis concluded that Obamacare’s Innovation Center is subject to no administrative or judicial review. The Innovation Center director is, in effect, a super-czar without any checks or balances on his grant-making decisions, methods or results.
I warned two months ago that the Obamacare Innovation Center and its multibillion-dollar slush fund smacked of “another pipeline for political payoffs and Chicago-style boodle that will result in less patient autonomy, fewer health-care choices, more government intrusion and lower-quality care.”
The University of Chicago Medical Center grant walks and talks like just such a political payoff. I have reported extensively on how Mrs. Obama helped engineer the Urban Health Initiative’s plan to offload low-income patients with non-urgent health needs. With consulting help from Obama senior adviser David Axelrod’s Chicago-based PR firm and the blessing of fellow Chicago pal Valerie Jarrett (who chaired the hospital’s board of trustees), Mrs. Obama sold the scheme to outsource low-income care to other facilities as a way to “dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents.”
The program guaranteed “free” shuttle rides to and from the outside clinics. In truth, it was old-fashioned cost-cutting and favor-trading repackaged by a nonprofit, tax-exempt hospital as minority aid. Clearing out the poor freed up room for insured (i.e., more lucrative) patients.
The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) blasted MichelleObamacare, expressing “grave concerns that the University of Chicago’s policy toward emergency patients is dangerously close to ‘patient dumping.’” The group concluded that the Urban Health Initiative “reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.” That practice was made illegal by the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) signed by President Ronald Reagan.
Bipartisan complaints about impoverished South Side Chicago patients getting the shaft led GOP Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush of Chicago to challenge the crony hospital’s abuse of its nonprofit status and lucrative tax breaks. But the probe went nowhere.
And now, Whitaker will have $6 million more to play with when he’s not vacationing with Obama or grappling with subpoenas over possible kickback and pay-for-play schemes while he served as a top health official under now-jailed Illinois. Gov. Blagojevich. One of the probes involves Whitaker’s oversight of medical facilities construction projects exploited by now-convicted real-estate shark Tony Rezko. Whitaker was also under federal investigation for misuse of funding for faith-based minority programs. President Obama recommended Whitaker to Rezko, who was a top Blago’s bagman.
Anyone who isn’t concerned about the privacy implications of this government-funded records-sharing network hasn’t been paying attention to how Team Obama and its surrogates are digging for dirt on private citizens who donate to GOP campaigns.
Nothing to see or smell here? Discerning eyes and nostrils beg to differ.

Obama doesn't care one whit about older workers, or older people in general, PERIOD!   His FINAL solution are the death panels of Obamacare's 15 member politburo who will tell senior citizens who can live and who can die after they are told to consider checking out early by doctors which Obamacare incentivizes to do so.
Take a pain pill, Grandma, and suck it up, which is right out of the mouth of Comrade Obama!
There's another word for this - EUTHANASIA!

on White House under fire for adding Obama policy plugs to past presidents' bios

When you have no accomplishments other than doing your best to destroy America from within, you have to con the brain-dead that you do!

Morning Bell: President Me Posted By Rory Cooper On May 16, 2012 @ 9:17 am In Ongoing Priorities |

Reflecting on his two terms in office, President George W. Bush said in 2010, “You realize you’re not it. You’re a part of something bigger than yourself.”
This is a sentiment President Barack Obama did not inherit from his predecessor. Over the past month we have witnessed several displays of arrogant power emanating from our White House, emphasizing fealty to a person over the integrity of an American institution. Some are more serious than others.
First, this week it was discovered that White House staff had edited the biographies [1] of many past presidents on whitehouse.gov [2] to include a bullet point or two inserting President Obama into each historical narrative.
For example, while President Calvin Coolidge had been the first president to make a public radio address, President Obama is on LinkedIn; and while Social Security was introduced by President Roosevelt, under President Obama it still exists. But in a far more egregious example, they incorrectly added to President Ronald Reagan’s biography [2]:

“In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.”

This is not only a complete fabrication of what President Reagan said (even The Washington Post‘s ‘fact checker’ [3] gave this familiar line two Pinocchios) but it is also a glaring example of the President putting himself ahead of the sacred institution he is sworn to protect for the nation as well as his predecessors and successors.
Heritage Distinguished Fellow Ed Meese who served as President Reagan’s Attorney General said: “They should not use the biographies of past presidents as campaign vehicles. What they have done is to spoil the integrity of the historical narrative. At the very least, the Reagan biography should be restored to the accurate version provided by the White House Historical Association. I’m sure those associated with other past presidents would feel the same.”
This is not the first time the Obama White House has engaged in this behavior. In March 2009, they were caught editing [4] President Bush’s biography to soften his listed accomplishments. They quickly reversed course. In the Bush Administration, biographies were directly supplied by the White House Historical Association without addendums or qualifiers.
Former White House Internet Director David Almacy explained to The Heritage Foundation that under Bush, this editing practice would have been unthinkable, saying: “It was our intent to preserve the history of the White House as an institution as well as those who served as president from a non-partisan historical perspective.” Almacy added: “It was ingrained in Bush Administration staffers from day one that our time in service to our nation was a privilege and that we must separate political promotion from the institution as a whole.”
Affirming that culture, President Bush told a group of departing staffers in 2009 [5]: “Laura and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for serving with us. I’ve had two great chiefs of staff, Andy and Josh. Their task was to assemble, and I would say this objectively, the finest group of people to serve our country, all of whom are here not to serve me, not to serve Republicans, but to serve the United States of America.”
This bipartisan approach evades the current White House. On April 20, President Obama’s campaign team released a Nixonian enemies list of Republican donors on their “Truth Team” website [6]. This wasn’t about transparency, but intimidation. After each donor name, the Obama team highlighted why they felt the person was “less than reputable.”

Essentially the person had either succeeded in a business field that was counter to the President’s worldview (i.e. oil production) or they made business decisions like outsourcing.
Prominent donors are often thrust into the spotlight in political campaigns, but this example was extraordinary and unprecedented. The writing was on the wall: If you give to an opposing cause, we will unleash a grassroots effort to destroy your personal reputation. This message delivered on behalf of the most powerful man in the nation has real implications. If the IRS were to audit one of these individuals, how could they not wonder if their political contribution was the root cause?
Following up on the story, the Wall Street Journal‘s Kimberly Strassel found [7] that a week after this list was released, a political opposition researcher was found to be digging through divorce records of one of the men named. The target, Frank VanderSloottold Strassel [7]: “When I first learned that President Obama’s campaign had singled me out on his ‘enemies list,’ I knew it was like taping a target on my back…[but] the public beatings and false accusations that followed are no deterrent. These tactics will not work in America.”
Between the biographical trickery and their enemies list, President Obama’s team has engaged in tactics that put their boss above his predecessors and dangerously above his opponents. This is indeed a culture that emanates from the top.
Just last week President Obama told ABC News’ Robin Roberts [8] in an interview: “When I think about — those soldiers or airmen or marines or — sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf…” My behalf.
Then there was also the consistent use of the pronoun “I” to describe the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. And the time, President Obama told 60 Minutes that he was our fourth greatest president ever [9], saying: “I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with the possible exceptions of Johnson, F.D.R., and Lincoln — just in terms of what we’ve gotten done in modern history.”
Finally, President Obama insinuated yesterday that if you don’t support his policies, it’s not due to philosophical differences, but because of his name. Answering a question on The View [10] about tight polls, he said: “When your name is Barack Obama, it’s always going to be tight. Barack Hussein Obama.”
Any person selected to the highest office in the land is bound to indulge a small degree of narcissism. But when it permeates the entire attitude and culture of the executive branch, it begins to become a problem. No president is larger than the presidency.
Quick Hits:

·         President Obama and GOP congressional leaders will meet at the White House today to discuss the economy [11]. Last month, the unemployment rate remained at 8.1 percent — relatively unchanged from the month before.

·         Greeks withdrew almost $900 million from banks in a single day out of fears that their currency will be rapidly devalued [12] if Greece leaves the euro and returns to the drachma. The country is in a continued political vacuum following an inconclusive election earlier this month.

·         Syrian rebel forces have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks [13] to aid in their fight against the Assad regime. The weapons have been paid for by Persian Gulf nations and coordinated in part by the United States.

·         Gen. Ratko Mladic, a former Bosnian Serb commander who is accused of crimes against humanity in the Balkan wars, went on trial today at the Hague tribunal. He is charged with 11 counts of genocide for his role in a war that left 100,000 people dead. [14]

Don't think so!
We're talking the "mother-of-all-hypocrites" here, as the social change that Hillary wants is a direct function of a tyrannical government's mandating of same by summarily trashing the rights of all those in opposition guaranteed under The Constitution, in particular, their freedom of religion rights, which don't exist in the vocabulary of Hillary and her sorry liberal ilk!

Why the Left Dropped the Trayvon Story

May 16, 2012

All Audio & Video »


RUSH: Developments in the Trayvon Martin case, and you'd be hard-pressed to find these developments out there.  There have been two dramatic developments in the Trayvon Martin shooting case.  According to ABC News, George Zimmerman's family doctor saw him the morning after the shooting of Trayvon Martin.  Here's what George Zimmerman's doctor found: A broken nose, two black eyes, bruises on his face and lip, two cuts on the back of his head, and a back injury. 


The NBC affiliate in Florida is reporting that the medical director who performed the autopsy on Trayvon Martin found only two injuries on his body:  the gunshot wound and broken skin on his knuckles.  Welcome to the Duke lacrosse case all over again.  Everything Zimmerman said about what happened to him turns out to be true after the media trying to cast him along with the civil rights coalitions of this country, the race-baiters, as abject lies. (interruption) What do you mean, not rush to judgment?  It's been two months.  I'm not speculating.  I'm telling you what the doctor said.  There's no speculation going on.  The doctor is not speculating.  The doctor did the exam the day after the incident happened.  It's all been suppressed.  Nobody's reported it.  That's the point.  And there wasn't even any media curiosity about it. 

Now, I'm not a forensic scientist, and I don't guess on matters like this. I don't have to guess; the facts are here.  It's kind of hard not to connect the dots.  Now, all of this information is coming out.  You know why it's coming out?  Because we're in the discovery phase of the Zimmerman trial, where each side has to show the other side what evidence they have.  But you really have to wonder here, folks, why none of this came out before in the prosecutor's charging affidavit.  Can we go back to that?  The charging affidavit, which, remember Dershowitz at Harvard said it was an embarrassment that wouldn't survive the first inspection by a judge, but it did.  But he said it was pathetic, it was unprofessional. 

I happened to report what Dershowitz said and my own affiliate in Jacksonville called the attorney's office, "What do you think about what Limbaugh said about your charging document?"  None of this is in the charging document, or the affidavit.  I thought that the state was obligated, or obliged, anyway, to provide all the relevant details in a case to the judge, but apparently I was mistaken.  But, anyway, as I said, ladies and gentlemen, the news media seem to be ignoring these developments.  I mean they're out there, touched on a little bit by ABC.  But the news that I just gave you has barely been mentioned on the cable news channels.  I don't watch it, but I'm told that MSNBC only got around to reporting this about an hour ago, and they ran a banner at the bottom of the screen that said, "Proof of self-defense?  Trayvon Martin family lawyer calls medical report suspicious." 

So the doctor puts out a report, Zimmerman's doctor, and now MSNBC is saying he might be a liar.  And they have to because they gotta cover their own rear ends the way they reported this. (interruption) I don't know if Zimmerman's doctor is a white Hispanic, Mr. Snerdley.  But you really have to wonder here when the news media began to lose interest in the Trayvon Martin story, 'cause you know they did.  They lost interest.  They were going 150 miles an hour on this story, and then all of a sudden they dropped it like a hot potato, and you have to wonder why they did that.  Was it when they found out that George Zimmerman is actually Hispanic and a Democrat to boot?  Was it when Trayvon Martin's gangsta-like tweets surfaced along with the more recent photos of him with his gold teeth?  Maybe the news media is just afraid of whipping up racial... no, they do like to whip up racial strife.  But they didn't even proceed under that rubric.  They just dropped this case like a hot potato.

Another detail that has come out in the local reports.  Zimmerman's grandfather was black.  That's exactly right.  That has also surfaced.  I wonder how long all of this stuff has been known by our friends in the Drive-By Media?  George Zimmerman has more black in him than Elizabeth Warren has Indian.  Exactly right.  George Zimmerman's grandfather was black.  Now, I had never heard that before, but assuming that that's true, George Zimmerman is a heck of a lot more black than Elizabeth Warren is Indian, exactly as you stated, Mr. Snerdley.  (interruption)  You have a question?  Yeah, he's a black-white Hispanic. In fact, given our current culture and the president, the way he weighs in on things, I have the perfect way now to describe George Zimmerman.  If all this is true, and just going by the photos that we've seen of Zimmerman, I'd almost have to say that if Obama had another son, he would look a hell of a lot like George Zimmerman.



RUSH: A minor, minor correction here.  It was Zimmerman's mother's grandfather who was black, which would make it his great-grandfather.  Zimmerman's great-grandfather was black.  It still makes him more black than Elizabeth Warren is Indian.  You believe we're talking about people this way?  You believe we have to categorize people this way?  And we are simply reacting.  This is the way the left, this is the way the media, this is the way Obama, the Democrat Party, look at people and categorize them.  It wasn't me, folks.  The New York Times calls George Zimmerman a white Hispanic. 

This is absurd. I mean, all this attention they claim they have to the humanity of people, all of this compassion.  They don't have the slightest bit of humanity when it comes to people.  They simply look at them as faceless colors of skin, sexual orientation, gender, all of that.  That's how they see them, victims, minorities.  As far as their humanity, it doesn't matter.  By the way, here's another thing.  In addition to everything you've heard now from Zimmerman's doctor about all of his injuries and about Trayvon Martin with bruised knuckles discovered in the autopsy, the FBI, which is part of Eric Holder's Justice Department, is planning to charge George Zimmerman with a hate crime.  The local prosecutor in Florida claims that Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin.  Not only did he profile Trayvon Martin, he stalked Trayvon Martin before killing him, and unlike the charge of second-degree murder, this hate crime, if he's convicted of it, could get Zimmerman executed. 

So apparently noticing a stranger in your neighborhood is profiling and following this stranger to see what he's up to is stalking.  They both are hate crimes, according to the Obama regime, even though the article mentions in passing that Zimmerman's mother's grandfather is black.  Again, I had not heard that detail.  So in all of this now, every aspect of the case that George Zimmerman told, seems to be true.  His doctor with a long list of major injuries incurred by Zimmerman.  Bruised knuckles and the gunshot wound for Trayvon Martin.  And they're going after Zimmerman now for a hate crime because the local prosecutor used the word "profiled" in her charging affidavit, the affidavit that Alan Dershowitz said was inferior.

 The Trayvon Martin Case Revelations Should Shame the Media -- But Won't

May 18, 2012

All Audio & Video »


RUSH: Trayvon Martin had drugs in his system.  This is turning out to be the Duke lacrosse case all over again.  Trayvon Martin, 17-year-old who was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, had the drug THC in his system the night of his death.  That's the primary ingredient in marijuana.  The revelation came as prosecutors in the case prepared to release to the public hundreds of pages of new evidence along with videos and crime scene photos.  None of this information was in the charging affidavit, none of it.  The charging affidavit contained only the fact that Zimmerman went out there and profiled Trayvon Martin. 


Even now, even now NBC News -- and we can never forget what they did -- NBC News doctored the 911 tape of Zimmerman's call to the cops to make it look like Zimmerman was profiling and was a racist and was only chasing Trayvon Martin because he was a black guy.  They totally doctored that tape.  The person that doctored it supposedly has been fired.  Two other people at NBC were fired shortly afterwards.  We don't know who the original editor was that was canned.  They haven't identified by name, but they've told us the person has been fired.  The tape was doctored on two separate occasions, and even after all of that, what I said earlier about you can't humiliate the media, NBC News had a story this week in which they referred to George Zimmerman as a white man with Hispanic heritage. 

After all of the so-called embarrassment and humiliation that they should have felt and suffered over the journalistically criminal doctoring of the 911 tape, they didn't just leave something out of it.  They put it in a different order.  They made it sound like Zimmerman said something that he didn't say.  He only identified Trayvon Martin as black after he was asked to by the dispatcher.  He did not volunteer the information.  The NBC edited version of the tape makes it look like that's the first thing that Zimmerman told him when he made the 911 call.  The New York Times was the first to run the story that Zimmerman was a white Hispanic.  It was the fifth time in the history of the New York Times anybody could find where they had done that. 

But NBC this week referred to Zimmerman as a white man with Hispanic heritage.  Even after all of this new evidence is coming out that Zimmerman was literally beat up, that Trayvon Martin had bruises on his knuckles, eyewitnesses now and a cop documenting Zimmerman's story almost step by step.  This case is falling apart.  Now Trayvon Martin, THC was found in his blood and urine.  This is another thing.  The autopsy showed that Zimmerman shot Martin from a distance of between one inch and 18 inches away, which bolsters Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin during a struggle.  Everybody else, the media, tried to make it look like Trayvon Martin was shot in cold blood by George Zimmerman, who was chasing after him and shot him from a distance without any provocation.  And none of that was true.  None of the way the story was originally reported, very little of it, was true.  Just like the Duke lacrosse case. 


So now, in the New York Daily News today is a column by Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law.  The headline says it all:  "Drop George Zimmerman's Murder Charge."  According to this column by Dershowitz, this new evidence is proof positive -- well, not proof positive, but highly likely here that George Zimmerman did indeed, as he said, acted in self-defense. 

"A medical report by George Zimmerman’s doctor has disclosed that Zimmerman had a fractured nose, two black eyes, two lacerations on the back of his head and a back injury on the day after the fatal shooting. If this evidence turns out to be valid, the prosecutor will have no choice but to drop the second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman -- if she wants to act ethically, lawfully and professionally. There is, of course, no assurance that the special prosecutor handling the case, State Attorney Angela Corey, will do the right thing. Because until now, her actions have been anything but ethical, lawful and professional." 

That's Dershowitz, Harvard Law, a liberal, writing about a state attorney up in Jacksonville.  I fully expect the Jacksonville affiliate, WOKV, to call the state attorney now, ask them what they think of what Limbaugh said about what Dershowitz said. 


RUSH:  NBC News, by the way, also claimed in their story after the autopsy was revealed, the detailed autopsy report, NBC claimed that Trayvon Martin was shot at intermediate range, not close range.  I don't know the official term is close range, but the distance was between one and 18 inches.  I don't know what the legal term for that distance is and I don't know what the distance for intermediate range is, but NBC is attempting to imply that Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin from quite a ways away.  Honestly, I don't know what's happened to this network.  It's not just MSNBC that's gone over the cliff.  The parent network, NBC, has as well.  There's no pretense anymore. 

Even after the 911 tapes were doctored, even after they fired three people involved in that, supposedly, they still describe Zimmerman as a white man with Hispanic heritage, in order to carry the racist template forward, that this was a crime that occurred only because a white guy saw a black guy wearing a hoodie in his neighborhood and doesn't like black guys in his neighborhood so, pow.  That's what NBC wants its readers and viewers to believe happened, when it didn't.  They know it didn't.  Yet it doesn't matter.

on OPINION: What medical reports say, media didn't

I won't hold by breath for the apology owed Zimmerman by the professional race-baiters to include the fraud masquerading as President and his Attorney General, both of whom deserve hard time in Leavenworth for their high crimes against the state in willful violation of their oaths-of-office!



What Zimmerman, Martin medical reports tell us and the media didn't


By John Lott

Published May 16, 2012





The new medical reports on the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case tell us a lot. And it is not just for what they find, but also what they don’t find. 
First, the reports provide striking evidence that Zimmerman did not start the fight with Martin, and that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense. Martin’s injuries were two-fold: broken skin on his knuckles and the fatal gunshot wound
Zimmerman’s injuries involved: a fractured nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury
It takes considerable force to break the skin on multiple knuckles. The large range of injuries on Zimmerman indicates that the Martin’s attack was prolonged. But here is what is missing: where are the injuries to Zimmerman’s hands? Where are the bruises on Martin’s face or other parts of his body? The evidence paints a picture where Martin was the only person landing blows. 
The broken skin on Martin’s knuckles and Zimmerman’s wounds obviously provide some justification for self-defense. But if Zimmerman is to have justifiably used self-defense, he can’t have provoked Martin’s attack.
The affidavit filed by the prosecutor against Zimmerman was extremely weak and had many glaring omissions. It does not answer the most crucial question: Who attacked whom? All it states is: “Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued.” “Confronted” does not mean “provoked” or “assaulted.” It may mean that Zimmerman merely followed Martin and asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood. 
Surely Zimmerman had the right to investigate a strange person in his neighborhood. But, in any case, Zimmerman simply asking Martin why he was in the neighborhood doesn’t give Martin the right to start striking him or pounding his head into the concrete sidewalk.
Simple words do not justify hitting someone. 
Anyway, it appears that Zimmerman didn’t even question Martin. The 911 tape of Zimmerman reporting a strange person in the area indicates that Zimmerman didn’t even try to ask Martin a question. 
When the police operator told Zimmerman “we don’t need you to do that [following Martin],” Zimmerman appears to have stopped following Martin and agreed to go to where the police would be arriving. 
The medical evidence implies that Zimmerman did not physically attack Martin and thus there was no justification for Martin to start hitting Zimmerman. 
With the case unraveling, it makes the prosecutor’s behavior look even more outrageous. The prosecutor wasn’t required to go to the grand jury for the indictment, but the fact that she didn’t in such a high-profile case is troubling. Everyone knows how easy it is for a prosecutor to get a grand jury to indict, because only the prosecutor presents evidence and the standard of proof is very low. 
A grand-jury indictment would have provided political cover; that charges were brought without one means that the prosecutor was worried that even a grand jury would not give her the indictment. 
The Obama administration has been fanning the flames, and it isn’t just President Obama’s attempt to personalize the tragedy
News reports surfaced Tuesday that the US Justice Department was pushing hard to charge Zimmerman, who is part black himself, with a hate crime because Martin was black. Such a charge can carry a life prison term or even the death penalty. 
Yet, Zimmerman and his wife mentored two black children for free
A recent Reuters report that interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors found that both black and Hispanics viewed Zimmerman as someone who cared deeply about his neighbors and volunteered to head the community watch to help them. 
The claim that Zimmerman referred to blacks as “f***ing coons” has long since been dropped.
Using this case for political purposes has already come at a real cost. In Gainesville, Florida; Oak Park, Illinois; Mobile, Alabama; Toledo, Ohio; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and possibly Norfolk, Va., blacks have attacked whites in what they think is revenge for Zimmerman attacking Martin because he was black, and those are just the cases where the perpetrators would make some comment such as “This is for Trayvon.” 
The media has been partially responsible for this aftermath with its sensational reporting. Recent coverage has helped to balance things out, but responsible reporting requires still more. 
Bottom line: the medical reports about George Zimmerman are revealing a lot more information than the media have so far let on.

on Trayvon Martin Bullet Shot At 'Intermediate Range'

Looks like ZImmerman's account is holding up, as the investigation unfolds, which is news that is glaringly missing in PRAVDA USA!



Trayvon Martin Bullet Shot
At 'Intermediate Range'

Expert says Zimmerman fired bullet 1 to 18 inches away, as autopsy reportedly shows teen had cut on hand




Barack Looks Like Trayvon
Michael Oberndorf, RPA Full Story

Media, Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro all pounced on the incident as a way to stir up more racial hatred among black people, against whites

Barack Looks Like Trayvon



- Michael Oberndorf, RPA  

Once again, as the facts – the real ones, not the ones made up by the media – come out, it turns out that the “victim” was actually the perpetrator. And once again, the extreme left, racist race baiters – Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro – jumped in at the outset to muddy the waters, and foment racial hatred and violence.

This sort of behavior isn’t new, though. The list of phony black victims is long and growing longer. Some of the more egregious ones include: Tawana Brawley, whose lies launched the race-hustling career of Sharpton; the black woman in east Texas who cut “KKK” into her chest and claimed to have been raped by white men; the black college students who painted racial slurs on other black students’ dorm room door, and tried to blame white students; the black “professor” who vandalized her own car; the black man who burned a cross on his own front lawn; and of course, the Duke Lacross team “rape.”

In every case, the media proclaimed these to be racially motivated, white-on-black “hate-crimes.” In every case, this turned out to be totally false. In every case, racial tensions and animosity were stirred up by the accusations. In some of the cases, the lives of innocent white men were seriously damaged. And in no case did the media take responsibility, much less apologize.

Which brings us to the Trayvon Martin case.

In spite of the avalanche of media lies and parroting of lies, clearly aimed at trying and convicting George Zimmerman without the nuisance of a trial, the facts are coming out. And the facts back up Zimmerman’s version of what happened. Period.

There seems to be no doubt that the media, Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, and yes, Barack Hussein Obama-Soetoro all pounced on the incident as a way to stir up more racial hatred among black people, against whites. The New York Slimes…er…Times, called Zimmerman a “white Hispanic” without bothering to inquire as to his true lineal pedigree, which turns out to be about as diverse as any liberal could want. NBC, a network with a history of faking news stories, doctored tapes of the 911 call to make Zimmerman look like a racist predator, rather than the nervous neighborhood watch guy he really was.

Martin was portrayed as an angelic boy scout, rather than the dope-smoking, wannabe gangbanger it turns out he was. The media used a picture of Martin when he was 13, rather than the ones from his myspace page, where he poses in a wife-beater shirt and displays multiple tattoos. They ignored (covered up, actually) the fact that Martin had been suspended from school for a variety of offenses, including possession of drug paraphernalia, and possible possession of stolen jewelry and a burglar tool. He had just started a 10-day one for “being in an unauthorized area” (breaking and entering?) the day before he attacked Zimmerman.

Interestingly, the totally gratuitous remark by B. Hussein that, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” turns out to be a whole lot truer than he thought. We have been reminded of his own admissions in Dreams From My Father that sound more like bragging, that young Barry drank and drove drunk, used marijuana and cocaine, physically abused at least one girl, and got into fights.

The result of all this intentional racial agitation has been the murders of a number of innocent white people “for Trayvon,” and the savage beatings of several more. The language used by Sharpton especially, clearly was to incite this sort of violence. That the media uncritically repeated his hysterical ranting on TV and in the newspapers strongly suggests that they, too, hoped that it would result in racially motivated bloodshed. Well, folks, they sure got their wish.

Though Obama-Soetoro was quick to help stir the poisonous racial brew at the beginning, lending the power of the office of the President to the “Trayvon as victim of racism” lie, there has not been a word of condemnation of the vicious racial attacks on innocent white people that resulted. Nor has there been comment from the corrupt, racist Holder Injustice Department that Zimmerman has been lynched by the President and in the media. But then, do you really expect there to be any?

The fraud currently squatting in the White House has done more to damage racial relations in America than anyone in the past 50 years. Talk of the government fomenting race war in America has increased, and gained a credibility that it never had before. We are looking at an ugly future, resulting from an intentional dividing of America by the Democrat left. Get ‘em out of power, before it’s too late.

on Hill GOP wants answers on Hezbollah leader tied to soldiers killings, set for release

The explanation for this is really quite simple, and should be obvious to anyone still capable of rational thought, as Rep. West is in demanding answers in this case!
Imam Obama is a traitor!

This is what Imam Obama has done to American law enforcement, i.e., neutering them to the point where a terrorist who murdered thousands of Americans is not considered an "enemy combatant"!
I don't believe there are words to adequately describe "The Thing" in the White House anymore!

Welcome to indoctrination masquerading as education in America in the 21st Century where, if your students can't pass a seminal writing exam, no problem as the remedy is to lower the passing score.
I'd be willing to bet the farm, which is soon to be solely owned by the government, that all of these flunkies could recite pathological lying Green Goblin Gore's talking points on global warming verbatim, along with giving a litany of the apologies owed to the world for being born an American, as opposed to a communist, following the example of the America hater extraordinaire masquerading as president!
