Paul Ryan...Romeys selection for VP..Oh Boy!

Yeppers > <~ Truly a Hot Dog Politician

Well Romney sure knows a lot about business and selection of qualified candidates...or not! Paul Ryan to be blunt is a professional student and politician...His only work experience in the real world was that of being a salesman for Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs[Even drove the Weiner Mobile Van ]..and part time personal trainer...the rest of his life was that of a  student then aide to Politicians before becoming a 7 term Congressional representative.. Sorry GOP I am not impressed in the least...and why did this physically fit young college graduate avoid serving in the US Military to show his patriotism?

Don't know about y'all but I am sick of the Progressive Marxist DNC and the Professional Politician GOP...truly time for a third Party to evolve and take back our Great country... following strict Constitutional guidelines, serving the people as a whole not personal interests and agendas!

ADDENDUM:  Sarah Palin on VP choice:
As a guest on Fox News' "Hannity" Thursday, Palin said her first choice for Romney's running mate would have been Florida Congressman Allen West.
"The liberal left is absolutely terrified of Allen West and what he represents," Palin said. "A war hero who honorably served our country continuing today in his official capacity as a representative."
But she said she would support anyone that Romney chose. "Anybody but Obama," Palin said.

Officer imprisoned for challenging Obama tells story

By: Jerome R. Corsi 
“Officer’s Oath: Why My Vow to Defend the Constitution Demanded That I Sacrifice My Career” is Lt. Col. Terry Lakin’s moving first-hand account of faith and patriotism that led to court-martial, imprisonment and the stripping of all military rank and privileges, including his Army pension.
Lakin, an Army flight surgeon, was court-martialed because he refused to obey deployment orders, arguing Barack Obama had not documented his eligibility for the presidency under Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution.
“What I do not understand and still don’t,” Lakin writes, “is why Obama did not just come forward with his key documents and be done with it. Instead, he ordered all of his important records to be kept under seal.”
Lt. Col. Terry Lakin’s “Officer’s Oath: Why My Vow to Defend the Constitution Demanded That I Sacrifice My Career” is available now at WND’s Superstore

Addressing both the short-form and the long-form birth certificates released by the White House, Lakin notes they are digital scans of purportedly official documents, neither of which would be acceptable as evidence in a court proceeding.
“So tell me: Who has something to hide?” he asks. “It would seem to be President Obama, and sooner or later the voters of this country are going to make it clear that his stonewalling cannot continue.”
Lakin has explained that he was compelled by his officer’s oath to uphold and defend the Constitution when he was ordered to deploy to Afghanistan. Along with questions about the authenticity of the Obama birth documents, some constitutional scholars argue Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was not an American citizen.
Ironically, Lakin’s deployment orders required him to bring five copies of his birth certificate.
“I had read the orders several times and had glossed over a detail that had previously seemed routine, but this time I felt like Wile E. Coyote getting smacked by an anvil,” he writes. “I needed a birth certificate to deploy, but the president did not need one to order my deployment. This was nuts.”
Lakin’s day of decision was April 12, 2010.

That day he packed his car as though he were going to be on Flight 1123 out of Baltimore/Washington International Airport at 8:20 a.m. He expected to check into Fort Campbell, Ky., no later that 3 p.m. that afternoon.
Instead, he headed to the Pentagon, where he took a photo of himself with his bags to prove he was still willing to deploy if Obama’s eligibility could be validated.

That’s when Lakin’s nightmare began.
When he was court-martialed for refusing to obey orders, he found himself looking at the paintings on the wall behind the jury members.
He writes:
As fate would have it, these were portraits of various Founding Fathers, and I wondered what they would be thinking. I strongly suspected they would be seeking the truth, about Obama’s citizenship status, about his Connecticut Social Security number (there is no reason why Obama would have a Connecticut number), about the multitude of unanswered questions surrounding this man. Here, however, to emphasize the real issues would likely have resulted in a reprimand from the judge and a harsher sentence from the jury. How, I wondered, had our country descended to this level of apathy?

Lakin writes an equally emotional passage about his final moments of freedom with his family.
What does one say to a wife and children before leaving for prison? I tried to instill in my seven-year-old the conviction that he was now the man of the house and needed to take care of the family. I told my eleven-year-old daughter to be the best help to her mom she could be. All the while I was holding back the tears lest I set off my little one and turn this into an emotional free-for-all.
Lakin contends Congress should have demanded Obama show his birth credentials when he declared he was a presidential candidate in Springfield, Ill., on Feb. 10, 2007.
The officer’s downfall was his determination to seek the truth about Obama’s eligibility when the establishment media showed no interest in it.
Supporters say that by prosecuting Lakin, the United States military abandoned the principles articulated by the Nuremburg Trial at the end of World War II asserting the Nazi military and government officials had a responsibility of conscience to adhere to a higher order of morality than simply follow orders.
Lakin proclaimed his loyalty to the higher order of the oath he took as an officer, choosing on moral grounds to disobey the orders he was issued by a commander-in-chief who refused to allow the Hawaii Department of Health to open the vault and show the world Obama’s original 1961 birth records, if any truly exist.

Reports: Romney picks Paul Ryan as VP running mate

Well if this is true Mitt Romney blew it big time..he has opted for the Good ol' Boy ticket...he may have gained the votes of young College Republicans...but has alienated Seniors,Veterans and Minorities...brilliant just brilliant Mr.Romney..I suppose the Tea Party/Strict Constitutionalists will have to support their choices for Congress and the Senate and give up on the Good Old Boy GOP POTUS/VP Ticket..!


NORFOLK, Va.--Mitt Romney will name his vice presidential running mate on Saturday.
According to a statement the campaign released late Friday, the presumptive Republican nominee will announce his running mate at an 8:45am rally here on the USS Wisconsin--the first stop of his four-day bus tour of key battleground states. The campaign offered no further details, and aides traveling with Ronney declined to comment.
But Republican sources told NBC News, the Huffington Post, the Associated Press and CNN that Romney is expected to name Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin--reports the campaign refused to confirm. In addition, ABC News's Jon Karl reported that former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio--all of whom were said to be on Romney's short list--have all been told they are not the pick.

Soon after the Romney campaign announced the Saturday appearance, speculation about the VP pick began, with Romney's choice of venue for the announcement offering a potential clue. The USS Wisconsin is the ship named after the home state of Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee who has created buzz among conservatives recently. But the announcement also takes place in Virginia, whose governor, Bob McDonnell, has also been rumored as a possible vice presidential pick.
CNN reported late Friday that Romney phoned several Republicans believed to be on his short list to tell them he had made a pick--though he didn't identify who that person was, nor did the network identify who he phoned. A Romney spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The campaign has tried its best to stoke the buzz over Romney's VP pick. In recent weeks, the campaign has sent out emails to supporters soliciting contributions as part of a contest offering a chance to meet Romney and his running mate. More recently, the campaign unveiled a mobile phone application, Mitt's VP, that promises to reveal the name of Romney's running mate before it is announced to the media.
Romney has also repeatedly declined to offer any hints about who he might pick--most recently in an interview with NBC News on Thursday. Asked about the vice presidential announcement during a media briefing on Friday, Romney senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom directed reporters to download the campaign's mobile app.

Romney and his vice presidential candidate are scheduled to travel throughout Virginia Saturday, before heading to North Carolina on Sunday, Florida on Monday and Ohio on Tuesday. Romney aides are hoping the VP pick will offer new energy to a campaign that has been besieged by negative attacks from President Barack Obama's campaign and negative headlines about Romney's own strategy.
Ryan, 42, has been viewed by Republicans as a game-changing pick for the Romney campaign--a rising star Republican who has been praised as a conservative intellectual. Perhaps most importantly, Ryan and Romney get along. In the run-up to the Wisconsin primary in early April, the two campaigned together nearly everyday for a week--with Ryan even playing an April Fool's Day joke on the GOP candidate. Reporters trailing Romney at the time noted the budding "bromance" between the two men--a description Romney aides did not dispute.

Romney flew from Boston to Norfolk late Friday afternoon with several of his senior aides, including Fehrnstrom and senior strategist Stuart Stevens. He made a brief appearance in the press cabin, where he made small talk on yogurt. There were no major hints that a vice presidential announcement was coming. Indeed, the campaign's mood was so relaxed that several reporters skipped the flight to Virginia and had downgraded plans for coverage of the bus tour thinking that a VP announcement would not come until next week.
Upon landing, the presumptive Republican nominee boarded a new campaign bus touting his plan to "strengthen" the middle class but not his VP. Less than an hour before the campaign announced that Romney would unveil his VP pick, senior Romney aides were spotted mingling with reporters in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel in Norfolk, where the candidate and his entourage are staying, but gave no indication an announcement was imminent.
Reached by email about the VP news, aides all offered the same response "Keep an eye on the app," one said.

Obama Whines Michelle Doesn’t Collect Salary As First Lady

Oped: Jack...Unbelievable *SMH*~ 'Royal Welfare"

And now we get more of the whining Barack Obama we’ve come to get annoyed at and despise. At a campaign stop in Colorado on Wednesday, Barack Obama got in touch with his feminine side, which isn’t that hard after he’s been hanging out in Chicago bath houses, in an attempt to sweep some women voters off their feet. Just what was his tactic? He complained that his wife Michelle did not receive a salary for her First Lady duties.
First Lady duties? Say what? No one elected Mrs. Obama or gave her a post to represent the people. Why should we then pay her for being Obama’s wife? Listen as Barry tries to play the tiniest of violins as he appeals to the emotional women in his audience.

“I want to make sure that when she’s working she’s getting paid the same as men,” Obama said. “I gotta say that First Ladies right now don’t [get paid], even though that’s a tough job!”

It’s a tough job? Please! It must be tough running around the country at tax payer’s expense for purchasing expensive lingerie, spending millions for a Hawaii vacation, as well as, flying all around the world with an entourage of gullible liberal groupies and attending big dinners with famous people. Yes that must be quite the job Mrs. Obama has. I bet she hardly breaks a sweat or a nail. 

Now compare that to my wife. Yes I’m going to take time to praise the woman that God gave me. We were recently made aware that she is not just a mother of nine, but now a mother of ten. That in and of itself is a huge job, but she cooks, cleans, washes clothes, runs a small business, helps to educate our kids at home, is a chauffeur, a fashion designer, a nurse to injured kids, a promoter of what is good and much more, yet still has time to keep herself up and look amazing all through the day! Does she get a salary for being a mom? No. She helps me accomplish a goal and that is the dominion mandate from God. I give thanks to God for her and sing her praises to those I come in contact with. As the Proverbs declare, ” Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.” I am known by my wife and she is known to all by me. “Her children rise up and call her blessed.” She is a wise and virtuous woman whose worth is far above rubies. She is a gift from the Lord. She is my equal, our purposes are the same, but our roles are vastly different.

No other president in our history has made such a selfish, self-serving and ridiculous request as Barack Obama did. I have an idea for Obama: Split your salary with her, which is what should be happening anyway. Matter of fact, just give her all of it. I mean you’ve told us you don’t need a tax cut. I say you don’t need any of the pay taxpayers give you. Give it to your wife for another vacation and set the example instead of whining like a little, hen pecked, angry man.
It appears that for Barack Obama his wife is simply a sidekick that needs to get paid for……..wait, what is she supposed to get paid for? Telling me how to eat healthy? Demanding that I exercise? Please. It won’t be long until Barry will be whining about his two daughters not getting paid for being first children.

“Spinelss, Career Consumed, Perfumed Princes” in Obama’s Military

Because I served in the Marine Corps many years ago, people sometimes ask my opinion on military issues.  Lately friends have been asking me about the proper response of military officers to President Obama’s order that all military personnel be supportive of open homosexuality in the ranks.  How should high-ranking military officers who are responsible for ensuring the effectiveness of military units and for protecting the morale of the troops in these units respond to the president’s order?  I attempt to answer this difficult and complex question herein.

First, some background.  When I served in the Marine Corps many years ago, one of the first things we learned was our obligation to obey all “lawful” orders.  Disobeying a lawful order was not just frowned on, it was a court-martial offense.  But what happens when an order, though lawful, is unethical, unconscionable, or just ill-advised?  Should military personnel obediently carry out such orders? Should they try to speak up on behalf of what is right?  Should they simply refuse to obey? What is the right course of action? How high-ranking military officers answer this question depends on their priorities and convictions.
Military personnel who put their careers above all else will obediently fall into line and carry out orders, no matter how unethical or ill-advised they might be.  Further, they will punish those who do not immediately obey.  Colonel David Hackworth—a courageous warrior and a man of deep convictions—called these self-serving politicians in uniform “spineless, career consumed, perfumed princes.”  This is an apt description, and anyone who has ever served in the military is familiar with this type of officer.

The middle-ground position is for officers to speak up and try to influence a bad decision before it is made or reverse an ill-advised order that has already been given.  Officers who choose this option are better than the “spineless, career consumed, perfumed princes,” but in the long run—when push comes to shove—they typically opt for career over conscience and begrudgingly fall into line. Several of the military’s highest ranking officers chose this option when President Obama first announced his intentions to eliminate the military’s “don’t-ask-don’t-tell” policy.  They grumbled a little, but quickly fell into line.

The final option is to make a statement by disobeying the unconscionable order.  This option takes courage because it inevitably brings severe consequences, and those who choose this option must be willing to accept the consequences.  An example of an officer who chose conscience over carrying out an unethical order is Lt. Gordon J. Klingenschmitt, a Navy Chaplain.  Pressured by his superiors to offer generic, nonsectarian prayers during Navy ceremonies, the Chaplain stood his ground and said no.  Klingenschmitt knew there would be consequences, but he was willing to accept them to shine a light on the secularization of religion in the military.  He has a higher calling than the military and a higher purpose than getting the next promotion.

Lt. Klingenschmitt entered the Navy as an Episcopal minister, a Chaplain whose job it is to minister to sailors on the basis of the Word of God and to provide comfort to those who are suffering in the name of Jesus.  But with Barack Obama in office, “Christianity” has become a bad word and the “spineless, career consumed, perfumed princes” are falling obediently into line behind the president.  Further, the politicians in uniform are turning courageous officers who stand on principle—officers like Chaplain Klingenschmitt—into martyrs.  When backed into a corner by President Obama’s obedient minions, this dedicated Chaplain decided to stand up for what is right and take the consequences.  He has been court-martialed and fined, but he may get the last laugh yet. Chaplain Klingenschmitt plans to leave the Navy rather than submit to the secularization of religion.  His departure will be a loss for the Navy, but a gain for people of principle.

Nancy Pelosi Ghost Whisperer? Or Just Plain Nuts?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) told a recent gathering of the Women’s Political Committee that the spirits of suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House.
Pelosi said she heard them say: “At last we have a seat at the table”.
A video recently posted on Youtube shows Pelosi speaking in May describing her first meeting with President Bush in the White House after becoming part of the Democratic House leadership.
I’m not sure if this is surprising or confirms previous suspicions that NP is completely off her rocker. Watch the video of the House Minority Leader telling a Women’s Political Committee recently about how she felt (and heard) the spirits of women suffragists during the first meeting she had with President Bush. Decide for yourself: 

Todd Palin Steps Into the Spotlight for Stars Earn Stripes

by: Tierney Sneed

After lurking in the shadows of his wife's television show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, and daughter's Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp—not to mention what is arguably the greatest reality show of them all, the presidential campaign, as the GOP vice presidential nominee's "first dude"—Todd Palin is stepping into the spotlight himself, headlining NBC's Stars Earn Stripes.
Palin, with the coaching of real-life special operative veterans, will complete various military-inspired missions. He competes with other celebrities including Nick Lachey, Picabo Street, and Laila Ali, to win money for military, veterans, and first responder charities.

Palin, who doesn't consider himself to be a celebrity, says he was impressed with the performances of his celebrity castmates.
"They weren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get in the mud and be there for the cause," he says.

A lifelong moose hunter, Palin had some experience with hunting rifles. But he says this didn't give him much of an edge over the other contestants, and credits his special ops partner for teaching him how to use the military weapons required by the missions. "I'm not much of a pistol shooter myself, so that was a whole new ball game."
Palin's charity of choice is the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska, which helps military families in his home state "through the good times and the bad." He has volunteered for the organization before, accompanying 250 Iraq veterans on a past sports fishing trip. "When they reel up a halibut and they've got that smile on their face, you just can't put a value on that," he says.
[See pictures of the first lady with military families]
The goal of the show is broader than just a single charity, "shedding light on what our military do every day to save lives and defend our freedom," Palin explains, which was the reason he ultimately decided to do the show, But he admits the nature of the challenges also piqued his interest: "It's not every day you shoot 50-caliber machine guns and bazooka guns and sniper rifles, and jump out of helicopters."
Stars Earn Stripes premieres Monday, August 13, at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Filmmaker: See pics of Obama's real siblings

By: Jerome R. Corsi 
Exhibit 1: Barack Obama, Barack Obama II and Frank Marshall Davis
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, producer of “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception,” has obtained photographs of the children of Barack Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis that bear striking resemblance to the president.

Exhibit 1: Barack Obama, Barack Obama II and Frank Marshall Davis
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, producer of “Dreams from My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception,” has obtained photographs of the children of Barack Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis that bear striking resemblance to the president.
Gilbert’s full-length documentary presents evidence that Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the biological and ideological father of the president, not Barack Obama, the Kenyan who came from Africa in 1959 to attend the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
“I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama,” Gilbert told WND. “How could this be?”
Gilbert launched into what became two years of research in which he conducted interviews and unearthed rare film footage and photos.
On one of his investigative trips to Hawaii, he went to the library at Farrington High School in Honolulu, where Davis’s children went to school.

“I wanted to find yearbook photos of Davis’s children and compare them to Obama’s high school photos,” Gilbert said.
Davis, who was African American, married Helen Canfield Davis, a white woman, in Chicago on May 11, 1946.
Two of their children, Lynn and Mark, attended Farrington High. Lynn Davis, born Aug. 15, 1949, graduated from the school with the class of 1967.
Mark Davis, born Nov. 9, 1950, graduated with the class of 1968.
As seen in Exhibit 2, Mark Davis, in his yearbook photo in the center, bears resemblance to photos taken during his high school years.

Exhibit 2: Mark Davis high school photo between two photos of Barack Obama (left and right) from Punahou High School
As seen in Exhibit 3, the Lynn Davis graduation photo (below right) compares remarkably to Obama as an adult.

Exhibit 3: President Barack Obama (left) and Lynn Davis graduation photo (right)
“Could President Obama be a half-sibling to the known children of Frank Marshall Davis?” Gilbert asks.
As seen in Exhibit 4, Gilbert has created a new “Breaking News” page on the website that promotes his film.

Exhibit 4: Breaking News Page: Obama compared to children of Frank Marshall Davis

Roots in Communism
As Gilbert’s film points out, the FBI had Davis under surveillance for 19 years because of his activity as a Communist Party member in Chicago and Hawaii.
Gilbert portrays Obama as a “Red Diaper Baby,” a child of Marxist parents who grows up to be a leftist radical. Gilbert cites as another example Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod, who was born to a mother who wrote for a communist newspaper in New York City.
“Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, he would bring people together, so it went,” Gilbert explained. “While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide an agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.”

What Gilbert presents is a direct challenge to those assumptions, arguing it is more likely President Obama has a deeply disturbing family background and a hidden Marxist agenda.
“If this is true, Obama has intentionally misrepresented himself to the American people and is no longer likeable,” Gilbert maintains. “Unfortunately, Obama’s style is to minimize, misdirect and outright lie about damaging information about his past. I hope the media will now demand that he come clean about his family background, his political foundations and fully reveal his agenda for transforming America.”
In his autobiography, Obama referred to Davis only as “Frank,” a friend of his grandfather who “lived in a dilapidated house in a run-down section of Waikiki.”
Gerald Horne, a contributing editor to Public Affairs, an openly Marxist political review, made the first positive identification of “Frank” as Frank Marshall Davis.

In March 2007, Horne gave a speech at New York University on the occasion of the Communist Party USA archive being placed at a NYU library.
In the speech, Horne discussed Davis, noting that Davis was born in Kansas, lived much of his adult life in Chicago and moved to Honolulu in 1948 at the suggestion of his good friend, actor Paul Robeson. In the 1940s, Robeson was an outspoken critic of segregation and racial discrimination in the United States who was also a strong advocate of the Soviet Union and a member of the Communist Party USA.
Horne also wrote of Davis’s friendship with the Dunham family in Hawaii:
Eventually, [Davis] befriended another family – a Euro-American family – that had migrated to Honolulu from Kansas and a young woman from this family eventually had a child with a young student from Kenya East Africa who goes by the name of Barack Obama, who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago.
Horne further documented Davis was “a decisive influence in helping [Obama] to find his present identity as an African-American, a people who have been the least anti-communist and the most left-leaning of any constituency in this nation.”
After Horne’s speech, the identity of “Frank” was never in doubt, nor his importance in the development of the young Barack Obama.
On Dec. 5, 1956, Davis appeared in executive session before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee investigating “the scope of Soviet activity in the United States,” one of the McCarthy-era committees seeking to expose communists considered to be a security threat.

Episode: The Communist Takeover of Hollywood

Hollywood used to be a place where make believe happened, but Obama is using the power of movie stars, television networks and movie studios to influence the way Americans think and vote, creating a new “Hollywood, D.C.” On this episode of PolitiChicks, Rusty Humphries talks with the Chicks about what Obama is really doing… and it’s spelled, P-R-O-P-A-G-A-N-D-A.”

Did You Know that Harry Reid Got Rich Pimping Out HOs?

By: Bernard Goldberg
For several days now I have been fighting the temptation to write about Senator Harry’s Reid’s despicable remarks on the floor of the United States Senate.
After all, he has already been called a “liar,” a “dirty liar,” and a “disgrace.” Jon Stewart called him “a really, really terrible person.”  And his remarks have been called “outrageous,” “unfounded,” as well as “reckless and slanderous.”
But the more I read about what he said the clearer it became that the one person who couldn’t care less about what people called him was Harry Reid himself.
Yes, we all know that politics ain’t beanbag and that politicians can make sewer rats look good by comparison.  But what kind of person can simply smile when he’s called such vile names? 

The word psychopath comes to mind.
If some drunk said what Harry Reid said in a bar, who cares?  But this is the leader of the Democratic Party in the United States Senate.  And he made his  remarks not in a bar, but on the floor of the Senate.  That takes a really, really special person.
I can understand why, as the political hack that he is, he would want to change the subject from slow growth and high unemployment to Mitt Romney’s tax returns.  I can also understand why he’d want to focus attention on anybody but himself since he’s the leader of a party that can’t pass a budget and keeps racking up deficits to the tune of more than $1 trillion a year.

And it’s a safe bet that Harry didn’t come up with this all by himself.  He clearly was just the dim-witted front man for the Obama campaign.  So far, not one of the president’s top political advisors has renounced Harry Reid’s unsubstantiated comments. And they’ve been given plenty of opportunity.
And shame on the president.  You may recall that he’s the one who told us that he was going to change the tone in Washington and to lead us into a post-partisan better place.  There’s a lesson here:  Never trust a Chicago pol no matter how endearing his phony smile might be.  There’s an old saying about how sincerity is the most important element in all relationships — and once you learn how to fake it, you have it made.  It’s supposed to be funny; Barack Obama took the line to heart.
Senator Reid says he got his information from an “extremely credible source,” someone who had invested with Bain Capital, the firm Romney once ran.  But how would such a person – if he or she even exists – know anything about Mitt Romney’s taxes?  Journalists might want to ask Senator Reid about that.

As an editorial in the Wall Street Journal put it:  “But without any proof, Mr. Reid’s accusations are a smear from the fever swamps that say more about Mr. Reid’s ethics than they do about Mr. Romney’s taxes.”
But then what should we really expect from Harry Reid.  After all, here is a career politician who lives in the Ritz Carlton in Washington and has millions hidden in illegal offshore accounts – money he accrued from pimping prostitutes back home in Nevada.
I know this because “the word’s out” about it.  Besides, an “extremely credible source” told me.

Barack Obama's new SS troopers DHS..!

Oped: Jack ... Janet Napolitano is the New SS storm trooper...commanding the DHS
By J. De Meo 


The authors tackle the politically-charged question of the homoerotic and homosexual nature of the Third Reich leadership. It is a serious scholarly work exposing a wealth of information on the following basic points:

1) While Hitler's Mein Kampf degraded Jews, Marxists, Negroes, Chinese, Arabs, women, and Eastern Europeans, he had no negative remarks for homosexuality. Instead, Hitler chose actively homosexual men as influential Nazi party and youth leaders.

2) The top and central most Nazi personalities and groups (SA, SS) which constructed the Third Reich were predominantly macho-types of male homosexuals or bi-sexuals.

3) Rohm and the SA "brownshirt" leaders were all homosexuals, and were killed by Hitler (Night of the Long Knives) and Nazi laws were passed against homosexuality only after their own outrageous open street sex-orgy parties and pedophilia behavior was being roundly criticized in the German press, thereby threatening Hitler's support base among heterosexuals. Policies of concealment thereafter prevailed.

4) Beyond the suppression of the SA, these laws were rarely enforced, and then only when politically helpful to the Nazi cause.

5) Only a few thousand authentically homosexual men (and no lesbians) were condemned to the death-camps by the Nazis. These were nearly always either political enemies of the Third Reich against whom such charges were a convenient excuse to dispose of them, or passive-receptive homosexual "femmes" -- homosexual men of softer feminine qualities -- and whom the macho leather-clad homosexuals always viewed (along with women) with terrible contempt.

6) The attacks against the Sex-Research Institute of the openly-homosexual and flamboyant pedophile Magnus Hirschfeld, was made to seize and burn his extensive files on the homosexual movement and personalities in Wiemar Germany, which included details on the homosexual and pedophile conduct of top Nazi officials.

7) The swaggering macho muscular nature of the SS and SA units, their overt pedophilia, sadist-masochistic sexual predelictions, their sadistc cruelty against heterosexuals, women, and other cultures not sharing their pathology, is detailed.


The authors also chastise modern homosexual activist groups, and homo-sympathetic historians, for widespread distortion of these facts, which are abused to create the false image of homosexuals as "victims" of the Third Reich, comparable to the genocidal attacks against Jews, Gypsies, or Slavs. Their role inside the Third Reich, as partial architects of the Final Solution and other reprehensible Nazi policies, is nearly always never mentioned. Out of this comes a brand of aggressive if not fascist "political correctness" which labels any criticism of organized homosexual or bi-sexual conduct -- even as outrageously pathological as in the "gay" bath-houses, or as seen in things like the Fulsom Street Festival in San Francisco, or the various "Gay Pride" parades, or as advocated by criminal groups like NAMBLA -- as "hate speech", or even "hate crimes".

The book caused a furious reaction within the homosexual activist groups of the West, but no serious scholarly rebuttals. It becomes all the more important for modern times when one considers the widespread sexual pathos within Saharasian cultures, in the Muslim world, where pedophilia and macho-male homosexuality is predominant (though never defined as "homosexuality"), even while softer "femme" homosexuals (and women) can be legally murdered for their independent sexual expression.


The book's authors are admittedly writing from a Judeo-Christian perspective, and this colors some of their conclusions. They expose the Nazi efforts to construct a "neo-Pagan" religion based upon Germanic tribal folklore and the personality of Adolf Hitler, but there is no clarity about the Christian war and butchery against pre-Christian peoples, or the oftentimes more peaceful character of claimed "pagan" cultures. One also gets the false impression that there was little Christian heterosexual participation in the ascent to Nazi power or in the hatred of Jews, which certainly is not the case. Christian heterosexuals flocked to support Hitler, even if the Nazi leadership was mostly homosexual. Pro-Nazi sentiment and Jew-hatred was being preached, along with anti-heterosexual moralism (out of which comes a lot of disturbed sexual behavior), across Germany for generations before the Nazis appeared on the scene. The Kaiser's war-mongering and Jew-hatred also had similar Christian roots. One only has to review the findings in the book The Popes Against the Jews: The Vatican's Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism for documentation on that issue, which Christian leaders today have often ignored.

If one can say that only a few thousand homosexuals died in the death-camps, it is also equally true, that only a few thousand German Christian leaders dared to stand up to the Third Reich, against their larger war-making and "uebermench" agendas. So long as Germany was on the winning side of the bloody shooting war, with more "lebensraum" and French or Polish slaves kidnapped into the fatherland to do the hard back-breaking work, typical German Christian citizens were quite happy to follow Herr Hitler towards the construction of a "Thousand Year Reich" where they could keep their personal boot-heels on other people's necks, homosexual or not.

I give the book 5 stars in spite of this incapacity for self-criticism of the Christian viewpoint, if only because this entire subject has not been subjected to the open review and scholarly discussion it deserves. The book may serve this purpose, to open up such a discussion, assuming it is not simply hammered out of existence by the angry factions of the homosexual-rights movement. If that happens, it would only tend to affirm the authors claims.

Exclusive: Top NY Homeland Security Cop Sues Napolitano!

By: Debbie Schlussel 
New York’s top Department of Homeland Security cop is suing Department of Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano in an explosive but heretofore unnoticed federal lawsuit alleging Homeland Security employment discrimination against straight male agents by Napolitano in favor of her lesbian girlfriend and sexual harassment of male agents by Napolitano’s handpicked Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Chief of Staff, Suzanne Barr. The lawsuit alleges that Barr demanded a male ICE Special Agent engage in oral sex with her and that she relocated three top male ICE agents’ offices to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters. All of the alleged conduct was the behavior of Barack Obama’s hand-picked people running the Department of Homeland Security, who’ve created a hostile work environment for straight male agents, a story I recently broke on this site.
Many of the key allegations are stories I’ve broken on this site over the years, and the federal civil rights lawsuit gives more details. The 21-page federal federal complaint was filed in late may by New York Special Agent in Charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) James T. Hayes, New York’s top Homeland Security official. He was previously the ICE Director of Detention and Removal Operations, in charge of the deportation of illegal aliens around the country. It’s not every day that a federal official at that level files a lawsuit against the head of his agency.

White House Confirms Obama Wants To Ban Guns

By: Tim Brown
During the White House Press Conference on Monday, not only did Press Secretary Jay Carney put distance from Harry Reid’s comments concerning Mitt Romney’s failure to pay taxes for ten years, yet not disavow the remarks, but he also affirmed the fact that Barack Obama is also out to ban guns, something we’ve known all along. He affirmed Obama’s position to re-institute the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.
Of course I warned about such calls for more gun control on Monday.
When asked whether Obama supported renewing the 1994-2004 federal ban of semi-automatic weapons for civilians, Carney responded,

“He does support renewing the assault weapons ban,” and he added that “there has been reluctance by Congress to pass that renewal.”
I will interject to say there is good reason that Congress doesn’t act. Banning supposed “assault weapons” does nothing to stop criminals from acquiring them. The Obama administration should know this best seeing that they delivered some 2,500 semi-automatic weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, which were responsible for at least two U.S. federal agent deaths and the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans. As I’ve said before we need more politician control legislation rather than gun control legislation.
While Carney said that the administration intends to push for gun safety “under existing law” and “not infringe upon Second Amendment rights of citizens” the fact is that is the exact opposite of what such measures do. The issue is not “gun safety.” That is merely the marketing of the Obama administration. Gun safety is what an individual does, not what government does. The Obama administration is not interested in gun safety. They are interested in gun banning.

Understand something here. The call for the ban of semi-automatic weapons is a call for most modern guns on the market. According to Reuters, the shooter at the Sikh temple was using a simple Springfield 9mm semiautomatic handgun. Josh Sugarmann, , executive director of the Violence Policy Center, a nonprofit group that advocates to reduce gun violence, said, “There is no valid reason for civilians to have assault rifles, semiautomatic handguns and high-capacity magazines. We have to start ratcheting down the firepower in civilian hands in the United States.”

You see, this is just an echo of the Obama administration. There are plenty of valid reasons for law-abiding citizens to posses “assault” rifles, semiautomatic handguns and high-capacity magazines. If we are to believe Mr. Sugarmann, then if those semi-automatic guns are out of the hands of the population, then there is absolutely no need for any government official to have a body guard armed with a semi-automatic handgun. Furthermore, there is no need for police to be armed with them either.
If there is a cry from these people who want more gun control and gun bans, then they need to follow their “illogic” to its logical conclusion and that would mean there would be no need for any semi-automatic guns at all. That is not the case though and they know it. Their is no Utopia like liberals assume in our future simply because men are fallen and because they are fallen they need means of protection against those men who lack self-control.

I never know how I will have to defend myself in public or in my own home. This is why there needs to continue to be high capacity magazines as well as a variety of weapons to choose from. Against military it is small for sure, but against common criminals law abiding citizens should be able to purchase a weapon of choice without government cutting those options off.
Carney finished the section regarding the assault weapons ban with the following:
“The president’s approach is that we should work with Congress where possible — and administratively where allowed — to advance common-sense measures that enhance our security, that keep deadly weapons out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have them, under existing law, but that protects Second Amendment rights, which the president thinks is an important goal as well.”

You see, we hear the “where possible” type of comment on things such as the cybersecurity bill, which Obama is considering using executive order to implement, which would be a clear violation of the powers he has under the Constitution. Not only that but Carney uses the phrase “deadly weapons.” Isn’t that interesting? Well now, according to TSA box cutters are deadly weapons and so are plastic knives, nail files, fingernail clippers. I mean if we are going to use the term “deadly weapon,” that really is in the eye of the beholder. Everything in our lives can be a deadly weapon, including some very well trained people!
Personally, I don’t care if people say, “Well other presidents have issued Executive Orders like that.” That doesn’t make it right. Law is to be made in the Legislative Branch, not the Executive Branch. don’t think if it came down to it that Barack Obama would not seek to implement such an EO, if he so desired. The question is, how would our elected representatives respond to such a measure?

For readers of this article who want a great “assault” weapon at a steal and you just want to voice your support for the Second Amendment, I’ve got a great deal for you. You really should consider owning an AK-47 and here’s a super deal to get one plus some goodies!

Obama Administration Sets Stage For Sharia Law In America

By: Tim Brown
sharia law
One of the most terrifying things that Americans could expect from a second term of Barack Obama is not the economic downturn that we are already experiencing. It’s not another ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal. Rather it appears that more and more the Obama administration, specifically the Department of Justice, is turning a blind eye to attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into the legal system. Last week Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), a member of the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution questioned Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ Civil Rights Division Thomas Perez on the First Amendment and specifically he was asking in regards to criminalizing those who speak out against any religion.

Franks’ questions were prompted by a Daily Caller article from late last year in which Perez was quoted as warmly embracing the proposals of Islamist advocates in a meeting at George Washington University, among them a request for “a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.”
Perez reportedly ended the meeting with an enthusiastic closing speech and was quoted as saying, “I sat here the entire time, taking notes…I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”
Rep. Franks asked,
“Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”

Mr. Perez would not answer with a simple yes or no. In fact, though he was asked four times he still would not answer the question posed to him.
So why the targeting of Perez by Franks? William Bigelow writes,
Last October, at George Washington University, there was a meeting between DOJ officials, including Perez, and Islamist advocates against free speech. Representatives from the Islamist side included Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding trial in 2008, as well as functioning as a Muslim Brotherhood Front. The leader of the Islamist attack was Sahar Aziz, an Egyptian-born American lawyer and Fellow at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a Muslim advocacy group based in Michigan. At the meeting, the Islamists lobbied for:

Cutbacks in U.S. anti-terror training
Limits on the power of terrorism investigators
Changes in agent training manuals
A legal declaration that criticism of Islam in the United States should be considered racial discrimination
Aziz said that the word “Muslim” has become “racialized” and, once American criticism of Islam was silenced, the effect would be to “take [federal] money away from local police departments and fusion centers who are spying on all of us.”

Niether the DOJ nor Perez had any response. It tells us very clearly that the Obama DOJ doesn’t care at all for real free speech. The implementation of Sharia law would completely undermine the U.S. Constitution.
The Obama administration obviously care that homosexuals can spout off about Christianity. They must believe that Muslims are OK to mock, openly ridicule and attack Christians, but look out if it should come to speech against Islam and pointing out its errors or false prophet!

Romney Continues Support For Homosexual Boy Scout Leaders & Members

Oped: Jack
It appears as if Mitt Romney talks out of both sides of his suspected he continues his support of the RINO concern for the GOP nominating Mitt Romney is becoming confirmed to say the least...which side is Mitt really on the conservative(Fiscal) or progressive(Liberal)? You be the Judge!

romney boy scouts
While presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney emphatically declared that he wasn’t going to make the issue of homosexual “marriage” a part of his campaign and didn’t participate in the support for Chick-Fil-A, he apparently has no problem coming out in favor of homosexuals working with our young boys in the Boy Scouts of America.
Christian News reports,

A spokesperson for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has advised that the former Massachusetts governor disagrees with the Boy Scout’s current policy prohibiting open homosexuals from serving as members and leaders.
According to The Associated Press, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told the news outlet in an email that Romney still stands by his beliefs that homosexual men should be able to serve in the organization. She specifically noted that Romney had outlined his views in 1994 during a political debate, and that his stance has not changed.
“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue,” Romney stated during the debate. “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.

The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement that reaffirmed its policy that prohibits open homosexuals from joining:

“The committee’s work and conclusion is that this policy reflects the beliefs and perspectives of the BSA’s members, thereby allowing Scouting to remain focused on its mission and the work it is doing to serve more youth. The review included forthright and candid conversation and extensive research and evaluations — both from within Scouting and from outside of the organization.”

I agree that the Boy Scouts of America should be able to decide this issue, but then to come along and say that homosexuals should be able to lead these young boys is just irresponsible. It’s as irresponsible as saying that it’s perfectly OK as a homosexual couple being able to adopt children.
In an interview with Neil Cavuto back in May, Romney said,
“[I]f two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child, in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something that people have a right to do,” Romney outlined. “But, to call that ‘marriage’ is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word.”

Now ladies and gentleman that is just ridiculous. By signing the law making homosexual “marriage” legal in the state of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney was declaring that it was in fact marriage. Furthermore, he forced the clerks issue marriage certificates to homosexual couples. Now seriously, are we going to believe his words now, or are we going to believe what he actually did that re-defined marriage in Massachusetts. I know which one I’m believing.
Mitt Romney’s record has been painfully clear on the issue of homosexuality. Amazingly though, Republicans are either falling for the rhetoric of the definition of marriage that Romney espouses, while he signed into law homosexual “marriage” in Massachusetts, or they just don’t think it’s an issue. Well it is an issue. Not only is there an issue of God’s judgment, but there is a very real issue in the breakdown of the society.
The irony in all of this is that while Barack Obama endorses homosexual “marriage”, he has not made it law and yet Mitt Romney who claims that he believes marriage is one women and one man has implemented it as law.

May God continue to give perseverance and courage to the Boy Scouts of America to stick by their principles to mentor young men in this society apart from sexual deviancy, even when those who run for the highest office in the land won’t
UPDATE: Here’s Romney from 1994:
UPDATE 2: Many of you have expressed you didn’t know this about Romney. I’ve compiled a page of video to allow Romney to speak for himself on a number of issues from abortion to homosexuality to health care to gun control. It’s important that conservatives are aware of the presumptive nominees record and views.

Mitt Romney/GOP don't blow the Opportunity!

LTC (ret) Allen West is articulate,educated,family oriented,experienced in military operations and command,experienced in politics and taking the fight to the enemy foreign or domestic....did I forget to mention he is also a conservative minority and the only one who can debunk the myth that minorities can't be conservative and earn the right to be a real 'Commander in Chief' The GOP and Mitt Romney have the opportunity to select a minority to the position of VP...thus denying the Progressive Left the opportunity to continue the racism rants against the Right! They claim the first 'Black President'...who by the way is a fraud and criminal...on the other hand Allen West is a honorable man who served and continues to serve his country well!

Obama’s College Classmate: ‘The Obama Scandal Is at Columbia’

by: Wayne Allyn Root

I am President Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. I am also one of the most accurate Las Vegas oddsmakers and prognosticators. Accurate enough that I was awarded my own star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars. And I smell something rotten in Denmark. Obama has a big skeleton in his closet. It’s his college records. Call it “gut instinct” but my gut is almost always right. Obama has a secret hidden at Columbia- and it’s a bad one that threatens to bring down his presidency. Gut instinct is how I’ve made my living for 29 years since graduating Columbia.
Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best it’s ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant, and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.
This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.

By attacking Romney’s tax records, Obama’s socialist cabal creates a problem that doesn’t exist. Is the U.S. Senate Majority Leader making up stories out of thin air? You decide. But the reason for this baseless attack is clear- make Romney defend, so not only is he “off message” but it helps the media ignore the real Obama scandal.
My answer for Romney? Call Obama’s bluff.
Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago that you are afraid to let America’s voters see? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.
My bet is that Obama will never unseal his records because they contain information that could destroy his chances for re-election. Once this challenge is made public, my prediction is you’ll never hear about Mitt’s tax returns ever again.
Why are the college records, of a 51-year-old President of the United States, so important to keep secret? I think I know the answer.

If anyone should have questions about Obama’s record at Columbia University, it’s me. We both graduated (according to Obama) Columbia University, Class of ’83. We were both (according to Obama) Pre-Law and Political Science majors. And I thought I knew most everyone at Columbia. I certainly thought I’d heard of all of my fellow Political Science majors. But not Obama (or as he was known then- Barry Soetoro). I never met him. Never saw him. Never even heard of him. And none of the classmates that I knew at Columbia have ever met him, saw him, or heard of him.
But don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Fox News randomly called 400 of our Columbia classmates and never found one who had ever met Obama.

Now all of this mystery could be easily and instantly dismissed if Obama released his Columbia transcripts to the media. But even after serving as President for 3 1/2 years he refuses to unseal his college records. Shouldn’t the media be as relentless in pursuit of Obama’s records as Romney’s? Shouldn’t they be digging into Obama’s past–beyond what he has written about himself–with the same boundless enthusiasm as Mitt’s?
The first question I’d ask is, if you had great grades, why would you seal your records? So let’s assume Obama got poor grades. Why not release the records? He’s president of the free world, for gosh sakes. He’s commander-in-chief of the U.S. military. Who’d care about some poor grades from three decades ago, right? So then what’s the problem? Doesn’t that make the media suspicious? Something doesn’t add up.
Secondly, if he had poor grades at Occidental, how did he get admitted to an Ivy League university in the first place? And if his grades at Columbia were awful, how’d he ever get into Harvard Law School? So again those grades must have been great, right? So why spend millions to keep them sealed?

Third, how did Obama pay for all these fancy schools without coming from a wealthy background? If he had student loans or scholarships, would he not have to maintain good grades?
I can only think of one answer that would explain this mystery.
Here’s my gut belief: Obama got a leg up by being admitted to both Occidental and Columbia as a foreign exchange student. He was raised as a young boy in Indonesia. But did his mother ever change him back to a U.S. citizen? When he returned to live with his grandparents in Hawaii or as he neared college-age preparing to apply to schools, did he ever change his citizenship back? I’m betting not.
If you could unseal Obama’s Columbia University records I believe you’d find that:
A)   He rarely ever attended class.
B)   His grades were not those typical of what we understand it takes to get into Harvard Law School.
C)   He attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
D)   He paid little for either undergraduate college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships given to a poor foreign students like this kid Barry Soetoro from Indonesia.

If you think I’m “fishing” then prove me wrong. Open up your records Mr. President. What are you afraid of?
If it’s okay for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to go on a fishing expedition about Romney’s taxes (even though he knows absolutely nothing about them nor will release his own), then I think I can do the same thing. But as Obama’s Columbia Class of ’83 classmate, at least I have more standing to make educated guesses.
It’s time for Mitt to go on the attack and call Obama’s bluff.

Iraq Vet remembers West's last shoot..!

This week in Guns & Patriots...

Dear Guns & Patriots,

Iraq Vet remembers West's last shot

Nine years ago this month, a veteran of the Operation Iraqi Freedom talked to me about his brush with history as he remembered watching Lt. Col. Allen B. West draw his 9mm Beretta sidearm and fire it next to head of an Iraqi national he was interrogating.

"If I saw him today, I would definitely talk to him and talk about that incident, and tell him I supported him," said Sgt. James E. Barrington, then a specialist, who was a cannon crewmember assigned to the 4th Infantry Division's 2nd Battalion of the 20th Field Artillery Regiment commanded by West at Forward Operation Base Taji, Iraq.

During this phase of the war, the attacks were coming from remnants of the Iraqi Army or paramilitaries loyal to the Hussein family.

Barrington said there were three main attacks, pot shots at guards, mortars and complex ambushes set for their patrols, he said. "In the ambushes, they would really come at us. They would fire RPG's and be jumping out of palm trees."

The sergeant, said West's actions were appreciated by the Joes, who were going outside the wire every day.

"I tell the story all the time because I thought it was great that he was willing to do something like that to protect us," he said. "In our own battery, we had leadership try not to go out and do anything dangerous, not try to help us out at all, so if you see the battalion commander working for it, you fell a lot better about it."

As the two men drove up, West had already taken the Iraqi outside the detention center, he said. They were about 50 feet away.

"Well, we pulled up and we saw Colonel West yelling at this guy," he said.

"We didn't see the guy saying anything," he said.

"It looked like Colonel West hit him and knocked him down, or it could have just been bash up, but I am pretty sure he hit him and knocked him down," he said.

"Then, he pulled out his sidearm, and grabbed the guy by his collar and pointed the gun at him, yelled at him some more, then shot a round off next to his head," Barrington said.

In the tussle, West held the gun so that it fired into a "clearing barrel," a drum filled with sand and staged at an angle surrounded by sandbag at the detention center's entrance, he said. "I didn't think he was going to shoot the guy. I didn't see that happening," he said.

"After the shot, the Iraqi started talking a lot," he said. "There was no translator, so I don't know how helpful it could have been, I don't know how much Arabic Colonel West knows--but, he was definitely talking a lot."

With the man still talking, Barrington and the lieutenant got out of their Humvee and brought the food into the building, he said. "We dropped it off and left."

It was at least a month before Barrington said he realized that West had left Taji, but apparently he left soon afterwards, he said. "The story was never brought up officially, but the soldiers would talk about it."

The sergeant said from the time of the incident to his unit moving out in November, there were no more casualties and the number attacks on the base dropped significantly.

It could have been because of what West did, or the fact that FOB got a Bradley team as the new Quick Response Force, he said.

Barrington said he found out West was elected to Congress in 2010 as he was at his battalion's the staff duty desk at Fort Carson, Colo.

"My first sergeant was just standing there at the desk reading the 'Army Times,' and talking about the new congressmen, who were elected, who were prior military," he said.

"He didn't say the name, but he started reading the story out loud, because I think he was surprised this guy got elected to Congress after the incident," he said.

"I was like, whoa! What a minute! Is that Allen West? --and he's like, 'yeah,' and I was like 'oh sh#t,'" he said.

"Then, I told him the whole story about what I saw, and he said: 'That's bad ass.'"

Heroes like West, famous and unknown, are this country's secret weapon. He has been a great friend of the Guns & Patriots newsletter and I hope both you and he will appreciate the great articles we've put together this week.
